Thursday, September 24, 2009 Free Press Page 7 LOOKING BACK 10 Years Ago September 23, 1999 If the reaction to Eastern Washington University President Stephen Jordan's closing remarks is any indication, there appears to be a new attitude at the school. Jordan received a standing ovation at the "Welcome Back" breakfast. Plummeting enrollment and talk of a merger with Washington all appear to be in the rearview mirror now as enrollment has hit 8,150, an increase of nearly 500 students. The age-old rite of passage of students using a fake ID to get into a bar is risky business at Showies Tavern. The business has instituted a $20 bounty on underage drinkers. When a person is caught, the identification is not only confiscated but Cheney police are called. Medical Lake schools reported a decrease in enrollment, down 108 to 2,288 students in initial figures released by the district. Cheney meanwhile increased slightly, up 13 students to 3,302. Cheney defeated Medical Lake 28-13 in the first game played between the two schools since 1980. 20 Years Ago September 28,1989 Wayne Brokaw was named as the new executive director of the Cheney Chamber of Commerce. He will start the job vacated by Dale Lampere on Oct. 1. The 10-year Cheney resident will fit the job in around a return to school at Eastern Washington University where he will work towards a master's degree in public affairs. Members of the city's Centennial Committee will take suggestions on what items will be included in a time capsule. With just seven weeks remaining in the state's centennial celebration, boxes to accept ideas can be found at the Cheney Free Press, as well as the Farm's and Merchant's Center. Medical Lake City Council got its first glimpse of a new budgeting aid that has been in the works for four years. City Administrator Tom Bumgarner unveiled the capital improvement plan, or CIP, at this past week's council meeting. The Cheney Blackhawks football team upped their record against schools from the Greater Spo- kane League to 2-0 following a 31-6 win over Lewis and Clark. Now, after a week off, it's on to Frontier League play for an Oct. 13 game at West Valley. Medical Lake fell 14-12 to Reardan in a non-league contest. 30 Years Ago September 27, 1979 Development in Cheney is being called "stable" following a report that 32 new homes were built in the city since Jan. 1,1979. Cheney continues to grow at a rate of 1.4 percent and officials figure that the city could reach 8,500 residents by 1990. Speaking of development, Mayor Tom Trulove's Blue Ribbon Task Force on Community and Eco- CHURCHES Cheney Community Church The community is warmly invited to come worship Sunday mornings at Cheney Commu- nity Church, 1307 Third Street.

A study to determine the best location of bicycle paths in the town of Medical Lake began this past week and will continue through December, planner Larry Stockton said. The study has a budget of $3,000 with money coming from the Washington State "fraffic Safety Commission. The study will consider ways for people to get to Waterfront Park, as well as other areas of the town. The Cheney Blackhawks evened their league record at 1-1 after a 14-0 victory over Colville. Mean- while, Medical Lake lost to Clarkston 38-0 in a game played at Lewiston. Eastern Washington University also saw its record evened at 1-1 after a 16-0 loss to Whitworth. 40 Years Ago September 25,1969 With July's Cheney Rodeo having been such a success, an event known as the WRA finals is scheduled to take place at the rodeo grounds Sept. 27-28. New bleacher seating at the grounds "will accommodate all comers." The press run of the Cheney Free Press reached an all-time high last week when the number of papers printed yose from 1,880 to 1,917.

Superintendent of Cheney Schools William J, Riggs was authorized by the board to hire six new teachers to help with issues of overcrowding. The board also heard plans for an addition at the new high school for another nearly 1,000 students and was updated on the new Salnave School..
