Medical Lake School board accepts NW Basketball Camp contract The October meeting of the Medical Lake School Board yielded good news as board members heard an optimistic report about 874 funding and board members decided to accept a contract offered by Northwest Basket- ball Camps. District superinten(tent Clayton Dunn reported the district had received 75 percent of half of the 1981-83 874 funds owed it by the federal government and that 75 percent of the 1982-83 payment was expected to arrive by Dec. 31. The district has played a waiting game for the federal funds, which are used to subsidize the education costs of dependents of federal employees. For almost a year the legislature has talked about various ways of reducing aid. Dunn also reported that the House" Appropriations Committee has ap- proved legislation which would con- tinue 874 funding at 90 percent of the 1981 base level. Even though the proposal is still subject to Senate approval, the superintendent offered the optimistic view that the proposal would be approved. "As each new presidednt has been elected, 874 has come under scrutiny.

Eastern plans jazz concert Next Tuesday, Nov. 9, the Associated Students of Eastern Washington Uni- versity will join with the Music Per- formance Trust Funds, by arrange- ment with the Spokane Musicians' Union, in presenting a concert featur- ing the jazz ensemble The Shades. The performance will take place at noon at the Pence Union Building on the EWU campus. The Shades had its origin as a student group in 1980 as part of the jazz studies program at Spokane Falls Community College. Through increased experience and personnel changes, the quintet emerged as a professional unit in the spring of this year. It has become a well-known local feature on jazz pro- grams and in jazz-oriented clubs since that time. The Shades is made up of Pat Owens on trumpet, Bill Drury on reeds', Mark Gilmore on guitar, Todd Johnson on bass, and Mark Ivester on drums. Although comfortable in all jazz styles, the group stresses contemporary jazz sounds, and includes in its repertoire items composed by local writers. Tuesda)'s concert, like all MPTF funded programs will be open to the public without charge.

During the September board meeting, Crowel and board members engaged in lengthy discus- sions concerning the camp's obligation to pay for the use of district facilities. The final offer made by Crowel is a $5,700 package which includes $1,800 for rent, $1,400 for utilities and $2,500 for janitorial wages. At the September meeting, the camp had offered to supply its own janitorial services at lower wages than the district pays. The final offer also deleted the addition of five scholarships for Medical Lake students to attend the camp, a provision vigorously defended and proposed by board member Harry Teaford at the September meeting At last week's meeting, Teaford once again voiced his opposition to Crowel's decision not to offer the scholarships. The motion to accept the proposal was made by Don Tarbert, seconded re- lunctantly by Teaford and approved P.E.O. gives scholarship Barbara VanderWeil has been granted a scholarship by Chapter AJ of P.E.O. for the purpose of continuing her education. The Eastern Washington University secretary and part-time student, wish- ing to complete the requirements for a B.A. degree in general studies with an emphasis on business, learned at the Women's Center of the grants and loans available through the P.E.O. sister- hood. She contacted Avilda Hoopin- garner, Continuing Education chair- man for Chapter A J, and qualified as an applicant in the Continuing Education Program of the International Sister hood. The check was presented to her by Cheney's Lori Lepski, AJ president, at a recent meeting at the home of Betty Rennebohm. The P.E.O. Sisterhood offers finan- cial aid to qualified women students through four educational philanthro- pies: the Educational Loan Fund; Scholarships to Cottey College (which is owned by P.E.O.) ; the International Peace Scholarship Fund; and the Pro- gram for Continuing Education. In additional, Chapter AJ has its own loan fund for helping area students with incidental expenses, such as baby- sitting, transportation and books. Information on all these programs may be obtained through the EWU Women's Center in Monroe Hall. unanimously by the three members present. Board members George Spilker was out of town for the meeting and member Walt Radmer was unable to attend because of deaths in his family. Turning to another matter, the board heared a review by Dunn concerning possible salary increases for certificat- ed and classified staff in July and August of 1983. Dunn said that even though employees are eligible for a salary increase at that time, the district will not move on any increases until May. The superintendent explained the action by saying "There's a lot of suspicion the legislature may remove the increase completely in their next session." Dunn explained that until the legis- lature meets, the only sure increase in salary will be those earned by certifi- cated staff eligible for increases as a result of educational increments for continued schooling. "Let's assume the legislature wipes out the planned increases. This is not a local decision and we don't like it when a portion of the staff (cerificated personnel) is eligible for an increase and the other portion is not (classified staff)," he said. At the beginning of the meeting, board members heard a "What's Right" report from Marion Fisher, director of the schools' lunch program. Fisher showed a film about the Nation- al Lunch program and passed out an ihformational sheet which showed the economic and nutritional advantages of the hot lunch. The program, begun nationally in 1964, is currently under- going testing nationwide. The Medical Lake school district is participating in an experiment designed to determine how surplus commodity foods might best be distributed to program par- ticipants. Dunn praised the program at the district, crediting Fisher and her staff for "running one of the best programs anywhere." The program was stream- lined last year and turned around to run, in the black after losing money for some time. In other board matters, Dunn re- ported that the Superintendent of Pub- lic Instruction had determined the levy capacity for Medical Lake was $486,965.85. If the district would decide to run a levy in the future, they could assess property owners up to $6.85 per $1,000 assessed property valuation.., Dunn provided the figures as an infor- mational item only. The Medical Lake district was one of the few area districts which decided not to run a levy during the 1982 school year.
