Chambers, his wife, Bev, and their children Stacy, two and a half, and Kyle, 15 months old, will reside at Silver Lake. A native of Boulder, Colo., Chambers said he chose the Family Medicine residency program from the 18 programs offered him because it is "one of the best in the nation." The program, which is affiliated with the University of Washington, offers licensed physicians three years of training in family practice. Different from the traditional general practition- er, family practice specialists are required to pass a certified board test and periodic renewal tests in their specialty. i00rberg Airpark decision due mtatively has been set as the ich the Board of Spokane ___m.issioners will make the vvmination concerning the ,nderberg Airpark. !roversial plan, developed by r dealer Gary Anderberg, ie development of 76 lots with air strip for small, private he site has its own water I is located within the Liberty !trict.

Larry Esvelt, owner of Esvelt En- vironmental Engineering, testified, though, that the Anderberg well-which is substantially deeper than most wells in the area-would not draw upon the other wells. Anderberg noted that homes in the development would be in the area of $150,000 and up. OUR 00kRMERS & MERCHANTS IRA INDIVIDUAL RETIREMENT ACCOUNTS IS COMFORTING F/IRMERS AIND MERCH/INTS B/INK'-' .... ' Chamber's associate, Dr. Lagnese, a graduate of Dartmouth University, recently arrived from his hometown, Pittsburgh, Penn., where he completed his residency at St. Margaret's Hospi- tal. Lagnese, who lives with his wife, Capt. Peggy Lagnese, a pediatrician stationed at Fairchild Air Force Base, will work half-time at the clinic while teaching at the Family Medicine Clinic in Spokane. In addition to the two physicians, the clinic will also serve as a "model office" training center for a Family Medicine resident who will work at the clinic on a rotating basis. At the new clinic, which houses eight examining rooms, laboratory and x-ray facilities and a minor surgery room, the two physicians hope to develop the idea of preventive medicine through "well- ness care." Dr. Lagnese explained that the con- cept encompasses a system of periodic exams, counseling and education de- signed to enhance the individual's continuing health, rather than reducing the role of the physician to someone whose advice is sought only when an illness occurs. Dr. Chambers also spoke enthusi- astically of the concept, saying the physicians eventually hope to offer health maintenance seminars for peo- IIIIIIlllllilllllllllllllllllllllil Spokane 9-11 delays new local service The Spokane 9-1-1 Board will meet tomorrow morning at 8 p.m. at the Public Safety Building in Spokane, but it is unlikely that any discussion will even be held on the matter of Cheney receiving any possible go-ahead on its proposed satellite 9-1-1 emergency tele- phone service. That was the message given to the Cheney Free Press late last week by Dwayne Paul, Cheney councilman and chief of Spokane County Fire District #3. Paul noted that the Spokane 9-1-1 Beard recently decided to move the 9-1-1 Office at the Safety Building from ground level to the basement. With this change, the board is taking another look at concerns of the Spokane City Police and the Spokane County Sheriff's Office. Paul said he did not think that the delay now will have any bearing on the Spokane 9-1-1 Board's eventual approv- al of the Cheney service. The Opera- tions Committee of the 9-I-I Board is expected to report on the Cheney proposal at some future meeting. llmllli/illlllilglilHIi/lllHll pie-with similar prohiems such as high blood pressure, smoking, and other problems, A physician will always be on call at the clinic. Office hours are from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. Monday through Fridays. The. new building, leased by Family Medicine, was financed through the efforts of concerned Medical Lake citizens. Equipment for the building was purchased by citizens and is also being leased by Family Medicine. Other equipment has been donated for the physicians' use. CHS awards program Cheney Public Library Supporters to visit City Hall A report on the activity of the Cheney Public Library and a plea for its continuance within the com- munity is expected to be heard at Tuesday's meeting of the Cheney City Council. First on the meeting agenda is a report from The Friends of the Cheney Library, who are organiz- ing to ward off any possible funding cuts from local government due to the financial "crunch" local gov- ernment has found itself in. Councilman AI Ogden, who was in attendance at the May 26 meet- ing of the library support group, said he might disagree "philoso- phically" on the importance of the library in any community, said he would not favor any ballot refer- rendum aimed at closing the library. "I'm not going to promote it (a referrendum)," said the council- man. "If put up to a vote, I'd have to vote to retain the library." Ogden said he agreed with sup- porters of the library when they call the library "one of the few positive attractions to the down- town," which also helps to gener- ate a lot of foot-traffic and business for other nearby merchants. Philosophically, though, Ogden said a library is "a-nice-to-have" within a community, comparing it to electricity or water, which he termed as "have-to-haves." Ogden said he does not use the library, but is happy that it is used by many young and old towns- people--many of whom do not use or who are unable to get to Kennedy Library on the Eastern Washington University campus. At the Feb. 24 meeting of The Friends of the Cheney Library, Information Gardening? Cheney Public Library provides a number of helpful publications for local gardeners. Newly displayed Is this handy gardening guide, put out by Washington State University. Charles Baumann, head of the EWU library, stated that it would be difficult for Kennedy Library to pick up the additional users if Cheney Public Library closed. Cur- rently, though, all Cheney Library patrons have access to the EWU Library through the new bar-coded library cards. Computer terminals at both the Cheney Public and EWU libraries, as well as at both Spokane Falls Community College and Spokane Community College, allow students and local residents access to the holdings of all the libraries.  ...... Currently, the Spokane Public Library District is funded primar- ily by property taxes. Taxpayers from the rural part of the county pay at a rate of 39.4 cents per $1,000 of assessed valuation. Local cities are charged the same rate against the total valuation for each city. In Cheney, this amounts to over $30,000--all of which comes from the city's General Fund. The city, by law, is not allowed to levy a library tax against individuals. Ogden noted it would take a vote of the people to decide if the library should be closed and that such an effort, if thought necessary by the council, would have to begin this summer in fairness to local resi- dents. The official 1983 City Budget is adopted by the council on or shortly before the end of the calendar year. Ogden said he was imp with the support shown for the library by its backers. "It felt good to know that it has that kind of local and area sup- port," said the councilman, noting that many rural residents also make use of the facility.
