Page 10 Cheney Free Press Thursday, May 27, 1982 Eagle offense, defense wage scrimmage battle Although the Orland Killin Spring Scrimmage produced a lopsided 23-0 victory for the Red team last Saturday, Eastern Washington University foot- ball coach Dick Zornes is very pleased with the five weeks of spring practice which have prepared the Eagles for the first ll-game schedule in school his- tory. Letterman defensive end Bryan Brandenburg (Twisp) blocked and then intercepted a Steve Hunt pass and carried it 23 yards for a first-quarter touchdown before linebacker Steve Graft, a letterman from Sunnyside, returned a blocked field goal attempt 76 yards for a second-quarter score, high- lighting the third-annual spring football game. Defense dominated the intrasquad struggle, although senior quarterback Jim Brittain (Tumwater) hurled a 28-yard scoring pass to transfer split end Kevm t:oursey tttenton) shortly before halftime. Blaine Wilson (Fed- eral Way), opened the scoring with a 46-yard field goal, and the 1980 letter- man kicked two of three extra point tries successfully. Wilson's 30-yard field goal gave the White a 17-14 win last spring. "Offensively, we didn't play as well as we could in the scrimmage," Zornes said, "but we played pretty well on defense, and, more importantly, I'm very, very happy with the entire spring practice season. We worked on every- thing we wanted to work on; we put in all the material we wanted; and we made more progress toward being ready for the next season than we ever have." Zornes reiterated that he and his staff are not through recruiting. "We still lack depth in the offensive line and at linebacker," he said. "I think the overall quality of our squad is better, but we need more good people at those spots." EWU is coming off a 7-3 season climaxed by a come-from-behind, 14-13 upset of Big Sky Conference runnerup Montana. This fall, the Eagles, compet- ing in NCAA Division II, will meet three Big Sky opponents, Weber State, Mon- tana State and Northern Arizona, and Eastern will open the 1982 campaign by visiting Weber State in Ogden. Shortly before the ,pring scrimmage, men's athletic director Ran Raver announced that EWU will meet Simon Fraser University in Vancouver, B.C., to fill the open date, Saturday, Nov. 6, on the originally announced schedule. Eastern will host Simon Fraser for EWU homecoming Oct. 16. Simon Fraser will become Eastern's first home-and-home football opponent since 1969 when EWU and Central Washington met twice. The ll-game schedule will be the first since Eastern began playing football in 1902 al- though the 1967 team played 12 games while competing for the NAIA national championship. In last Saturday's scrimmage, the Red team outgained the White, 214 yards to 114, with Brittain completing eight of 16 passes for 105 yards. Transfer Steve Hunt (Fox Island) handled the bulk of the quarterback duties for the White, hitting 13 of 25 throws for only 60 yards. However, Hunt and his replacement, letterman Jim McElwain (Missoula, MT) were under constant pressure from the Red defensive line which included returning starters Shawn Reilly (Tacoma), Larry Rencken (Walla Walla) and Branden- burR. Fullback Mike Andersen (Tacoma), most valuable player last fall, was the top ground-gainer, picking up 48 yards in 11 carries for the Red. Reserve tailback Craig Givens (Spokane) ran eight times for 47 yards for the White with returning starter Dean Brady (Port Orchard) gaining 35 in 14 tries. Split end John Johnson (Spokane) caught four passes for 22 yards and Brady picked up five catches for only eight yards for the White. Tight end Guy Johnson (Spokane) grabbed three Brittain passes for the winners. Freshman letterman safety Ran Archie and letterman Greg Kramer (Snohomish) were the most seriously injured players. Archie (Tacoma) bad- ly sprained his right ankle. Kramer had a compound fracture of the left forearm surgically repaired. Chancy Chamber hears port district arguements By Tom Thrun As expected, Cheney Chamber of Commerce members heard a pro-Port District talk last Thursday noon during their monthly, noon luncheon at the Willow Springs Station. Jack O'Brien, director of the Spokane Regional Office for the Washington State Department of Commerce and Economic Development, gave informa- tion about Port Districts in the state, pointing out that the public does have to be aware that a Port District, if developed in Spokane County, would be oeeeeeoeeeeee another governmental body, complete with taxing powers and the right of eminent domain. As explained in detail in last week's Free Press, a Port District does have the right to levy up to 45 cents per $1,000 of assessed property valuation, and O'Brien noted that Port District pro- moters-the Century 2 organization-are being advised to seek the full amount. He explained that the Port District should collect as much as it can the first year because it would be subject to the 106 percent levy lid law the following year. As he explained in late April to the Cheney Kiwanians, O'Brien told Cham- ber members that 32 of the 39 counties have established Port Districts since 1912. Typically, northeastern counties have been the conservative hold-outs; however, Pend Oreille County estab- lished a district in 1978 when it pur- chased a branch line of the Milwaukee Road railroad out of Newport. O'Brien noted that Pend Oreille County has operated the railroad suc- cessfully in the area. However, one Free Press reader from the West Plains ducts out and oil and fertilizer pro- ducts into the county to serve the farming interests. However, O'Brien noted that Whitman County currently is establishing its own "off-water" port and industrial park just outside Pull- man. "The long range goal of any Port District is to become self-supporting," said O'Brien, noting that developing industry eventually will cover Port District operational costs. According to the feasibility study recently done at Eastern Washington University for the Century 2 group, the public can expect this fall's election. Placement of the Port District issue on the ballot is likely, said O'Brien, noting that the names of those seeking to fill the three Port District com- missioner seats also will have to be on the ballot. Chancy Chamber member Ollie McCord asked what impact the Port District may have on local West Plains residents. "If they view the formation of a Port District as a threat, it's regrettable; it has no bearing whatsoever," he said. O'Brien noted, though, that increased area called to report last week that this to help support the Port District pri- development of the industrial area Obua district has some "problems", which marily for its first 10years of existence, around Spokane International Airport the Free Press will investigate at a O'Brien called the City of Spokane would mean more competition for later date. and Spokane County officials "reluc- industrial parks in the area, such as the he was born and raised at Reardan and resided in Cbeney for more than 60 years.

Heath were held Friday at the Hazen & Jaegar Funeral Home in Spokane. Heath, age 95, passed away May 17 in Spokane. A lifetime pioneer in the area, Spokane International Airport, ac- cording to O'Brien, currently is the only large facility of its kind in the state not served by a Port District. O'Brien pointed to the increased business at the Moses Lake Airport--indeed, the whole Moses Lake area--because of the Port District there. tant owners" of the Spokane Inter- national Airport. He said a study has been around since the late 1970s to organize a Port District around the airport but that no funds have existed to implement the plan. "They would be happy to turn it (the airport) over to someone who could do one in Cheney. However, he said the public still is generally uninformed about Port Districts and unlikely to vote favorably unless more education takes place. "I suggest they (Century 2) really have their work cut out for them for I believe there is a valid premise that Trophy trout taken This 22 inch, two-and-three-quarter-pound I trout was one of four which escaped during the Fishing Contest on May 1 at near Chancy.

Proponents from the city argue that the services are needed before industrialization can take place. Members of the Greater West Plains association, on the other hand, are not in agreement with Spokane's require- ment that anyone connecting to the services be required to sign a "Sup- port for Annexation" document. Spo- kane officials argue that it is unreason- able for the city to cover the initial cost of extending services to the airport ff there is no guarantee of recoping revenue in the future from an enlarged tax base. Attorney George Marlton, head of the West Plains group, asked that the Boundary Review Board consider re- commendations made recently hy the Spokane Regional Planning Con- ference, which suggested that the an- nexation clause he restricted to those areas no designated for industrial growth. Boundary Review Board Chairman Joe Shipman reminded the gathering that the Regional Planning Conference recommendations were not at question before the board at this time.
