EDUCATION Thursday, July 6, 2017 n BY PAU[, DELANEY Staff Reporter The Ice Age Floods National Geologic Trail, which Cheney would some day like to make a tourism attraction, received some notable national exposure. The trail, which received au- thorization from Congress in 2009, was featured prominently on the cover of the American Automobile Association's "Journey Western" member magazine. The story, which covers four pages in the magazine, is introduced and "framed by a dynamic photo of Palouse Falls near Washtucna, Wash: and then goes on to highlight key not-to-be-missed roadside at- tractions from across the area from Missoula, Mont. to Astoria, Ore., the path traveled by an estimated 90 flood events that ravaged the landscape. The last two pages provide high- lights of the trail as it passes through Montana, Idaho, Washington and Oregon. It provides directions on how to access many of the road- side attractions associated with the trail. The floods that are responsible for the landscape of our region hap- pened about 15,000 to 18,000 years ago geologists estimate. During the Ice Age, and subsequent building and retreating of glaciers, an ice dam would be created which in turn helped fill massive 2,000 foot deep Lake Missoula in present day West' ern Montana. When the ice retreated the floods came, not only carving out the geo- logical features found in Eastern ;~%~N~4G{ Washington, but bringing with them and leaving behind massive rocks not necessarily native to the area. A volunteer organization known as the Ice Age Floods Institute has been formed to help promote more interest in the subject, and to some day hopefully convince lawmakers in Washington, D.C. to fully fund formation of the 1,100-mile trail. A Cheney-Spokane chapter hosts regular tours and events associated with this geologic marvel. Paul Delaney can be reached at aney@cheneyfreepress, com.

Airway H By AL STOVER Staff Reporter Like many cities in Washington state, Air- way Heights is gearing .up to complete some well-needed street re- pairs. In May, staff had a preliminary meeting with Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA) personnel to re- view projects that could be paid for with emer- gency federal funds re- suiting from the storms and flooding that oc- curred during the win- hts lies for FEMA st Photo by AI Stover The portion of Craig Road near Bergen Drive is one of the streets that is in need of repair. ter. Public Works Di- rector Kevin Anderson recently submitted an application for a FEMA grant that would help fund street repairs. One of the damaged roads staff is looking to fix with grant funding is a portion of Craig Road, near Bergen DriVe, up to Sixth Avenue, which Anderson said was in "pretty bad shape" and would cost the most to fix. Another street north of U.S. Highway 2 that is in need of fixing is the section of 12th Avenue near Lawson Street. Road projects south of Highway 2 include Lundstrom Street near Shorty Avenue, por- tions of 17th Avenue between Mullen and Market streets, and Ly- ons Street. The estimated total cost of all five projects would be approximately $186,000 and the federal funds would cover 75 percent. The city would have to come up with a 25 percent match. An- derson said there is a chance staff could re- ceive funds from the Washington State De- partment of Transpor- tation that would cov- er 12.5 percent of the match. Once FEMA ap- proves the grant appli- cation, Anderson would forward the proposal to City Council. iF t During this time, staff will begin filling potholes throughout the city. Anderson ex- plained that the delay in completing the street repairs was because they spent most of their ef- forts working to resolve the city's water contami- nation issue. "Now that we've got our feet under us, we can focus on making permanent pothole re- pairs," Anderson said. AI Stover can be reached at al@cheneyfree- continued from page 2 Kate L. Rogers, Benjamin P.
