After the position was eliminated with the pas- sage of Initiative 695 in 2000, the Medical Lake City Council authorized use of City Assistance Program funding to pay for reinstating a seventh police officer. Cheney kept its playoff hopes alive following a 21-13 Greater Spokane League victory over Shadle Park as Mike Kinnie, Donnie McKee and Jesus Fregoso scored for the Blackhawks. 20 Years Ago Oct. 26, 1995 Cheney Superintendent of Schools Phil Snowden announced the intention to possibly reinstitute a boundary review in light of a report that nearly 600 miscellaneous housing units were in some form of planning or development within the school district.

Safety concerns over dangerous intersections, and the need to have crossing guards present, were voiced by members of the Cheney School District's advisory group study committee. Sixth and Oakland, Seventh and Washington as well as Second and Bonnie Way were the problem areas. Cheney quarterback Kelly Williams connected on 11 of 14 second-half passes and 134 yards, scored twice himself and also threw three touchdown passes as the Blackhawks defeated Medical Lake 33-16 in the Cardinals' Homecoming game. 50 Years Ago Oct. 29, 1965 Eastern Days queen Cammy Sparks won her title in part because of a Speech which urged a closer relationship between the city of Cheney and the college. , Several Cheney residents were urging that chil- Contributed photo by the Cheney Historical Museum LOOKING BACK WITH THE CHENEY HISTORICAL MUSEUM One hundred twenty-five years ago on Oct. 24, 1890 the city of Cheney's new City Hall, fire station and jail opened in a new brick building at 111 E.
