ee Press Page 10 Cheney Free Press Thursday, Sep i i II Photo by Jodi Walker Big bite Clean-up efforts began last week on the burned down grain elevator in Cheney, owned by Rosalia Growers. Machinery picked pieces of debree from the grain then a loader scooped up the grain. The elevator burned in a early morning blaze on Sept. 10. By Friday, barley, singed by the fire, was piled near First Street, waiting to be cleaned and hauled off to be used in hog feed. Future plans are still undecided on by the Growers. Lake continued from page 1 Meyers. But, the two pieces of seem- ingly adjoining land didn't pan out. Dick Shepard of Loon Lake is the title holder on a small piece of land north of the current beach and dock. "It would separate two pieces of the park," Birkenthal said. So the county is looking at buy- ing it. Shepard is asking too much for the land, though, com- missioner Phil Harris. "We're not just going to buy it," he said. It needs to be re-assessed. He said that a few years ago it was assessed at $800. Now, Shepard is asking $12,600 from the county and claims to have been offered $20,000 from another party. The difference in value needs to be settled. "Sometimes you come out of a meeting with a feeling like the re- suits were ambiguous; this was one of those," Birkenthal said after pre- senting the information to the com- missioners. He said the parcel of land would not upset any future plans the county has for the park because it is mostly underwater. The land only goes about 70 feet onto the shore, making it impossible for anyone to develop it. The funny part, Birkenthal said, is that it is zoned for business. How such a small piece of land eided up dividing the ownership is a mystery to the county. "I was just kind of baffled about that myself," Harris said. For now it looks like the county will approach Shepard again and discuss the price. If he did indeed have a buyer for $20,000, the county said Shepard should sell it--the county would never spend that much of the taxpayers money on a piece of land that small, Harris.said. Fire continued from page 1 As far as successfully doing their job goes, Montague said he was proud of the way the crews handled the fire. All the years of practice of just such a fire paid off because they did keep it contained. Neighboring fire agencies, in- cluding Fire District 3, Fire District 10 and Medical Lake Fire Depart- ment, fulfilled their agreement to help out. It is just a good-neighbor type policy, Montague said, and no money exchanges hands. "In the long run, it's supposed to work out." While Don Jones and his North American Sales and Marketing Company out of Houston, Texas, begin sifting through the grain, cleaning it and preparing it for hog feed, Montague is tying up the loose ends on the investigation. "We know all we are going to know," he said, "and that's not enough."
