"A price can't be put on the training the crews received today," Revill said. ......... Along with the fire departments, the Medical Lake ambulance service was on hand. Assistant Chief Dick Wynne did most of the leg work, getting the depart - ments together, said Revill. There were between 40 to 50 firefight- ers at the scene each probably entering the house three to four times. The practice was broken down into sections. One for new recruits, so they could be observed by the trainers; one for the more advanced for retraining purposes and one for the old timers as a challenge. Fire was set to the house earlier than expected because there were not as many men on hand as expected. Some had other classes to attend, Revill said. This gave the firefighters hands on techniques that can't be gotten from the classroom. It also tested the air packs and the workers reaction to them.

Fascinated by the life of Jack London, veteran Hollywood writer Fenady recreates in fiction one pivotal summer in the life of America's beloved novelist, who, though he died at 39, will live on forever in his famous novels. THE MAGIC KINGDOM by Stanley Elkins. John Irving said that Stanley Elkin's genius "lies in his ability to make the unlikely seem not only true but commonplace." And in this book he practices his unique alchemy on some of the most unusual characters in contemporary fiction. You will never meet more memorable--or endearing-- children than the seven terminally ill kids who have been chosen to go to Disney World for a last hurrah. Disney World becomes for Elkin's heroic chil- dren a kind of Lourdes. Bearing their painful afflictions amidst Disney's magical fantasy, they are funny, tough, ing, he expected to find things pretty much as he'd left them. Broke and road-weary, he was ready to pick up the pieces of the life he'd abandoned when, grieving over the death of his father, he'd dropped out of his last year at Princeton to begin an aimless, heedless journey across America. On his return however his old home was neither cold nor dark, and his mother was not where he was sure she would be-as a matter of fact he found nothing as he was sure it would be. DAVITA'S HARP by Chaim Potok. Another of Potok, deeply involved in human emotions story of the profound sometimes joyous, sometimes painful effect religion can have on us. This story is about a young girl in a mixed religious family (her father, a Gentile, her mother a Jew) and how they compromised their beliefs into some- thing that was neither right or satisfy- ing to either and the insight that this on campus, Lakeland Village's 23 stu- dents under 21 will be boarding a bus to travel to the Botteen Annex of Blair Elementary at Fairchild AFB for class- es, according to a news release by the school. Because the number of Lakeland students under the age of 21 gets smaller each year, the Medical Lake program was able to move to Blair. The same Medical Lake staff will stay with the program. The physical transition to the new quarters has been fairly smooth, ac- cording to Femme Munn, program coordinator Instructional programs are essential- ly the same. The students are in three . groups according to their ski Hlevels. According to the teachers, the stu- dents like going to school on the bus. Femme Munn welcomes anyone who would like to see the school program. 244-3617. The campus school building will be remodeled as a part of the new Habilitation Center to be built in the final phase of Lakeland's construction plans. Van Matre to receive award Medical Lake School Administrator, Jim Van Matre has been selected a National Distinguished Principal. The U.S. Department of Education and the National Association of Ele- mentary School Principals selected Van Matre for the award. The National Distinguished Principal Award will be presented by Secretary of Education William Bennett at a "black tie" reception and banquet, Oct. 3 in Washington, D.C.

City Councilman Wayne Olson, public works committee, also discussed deep- ening the drainage ditch that runs below Highway 902. Although the state put in the drainage pipes, it is the responsibility of the city to deepen the culvert, Olson said. Earl Davis, zoning officer, said it would cost the city $3,000 to hire crews to deepen the area. The money could be taken from the emer- gency contingency fund. Deepening the culvert would help avoid the situation of water overflowing onto the highway, Olson said. to approve the bid given by the 3D Fire Appartus Company, for delivery of the new fire truck at their regular meeting Sept. 17.

The delivery time for the truck will be eight to nine months. The total cost of the truck at delivery time will be $157,641.
