Page 4 Cheney Free Press Thurs., Dec. 30. 1976 DONOT Taking turns / /" / / / Y / Taking turns at enjoying a winter's sled ride during a three-day snow period over the holidays are two youngsters last Friday on the south- east end of the Eastern Washington State College campus. The area's children were able to enjoy the snow only through Sunday however, as warm winds and temperatures left the streets free of the white stpff by late Monday afternoon. Reluctant suspect arrested after spirited chase Cheney Police officers arrested .Kenneth Duane Clementich, 51, who gave his address as Rt. 2, Cheney, on several traffic charg- es following a chase that involved two CPD squad cars late in the evening of Dee. 20. Clementich was charged with reckless driving, driving without an operator's license, and driving while under the influence of in- toxicating liquor. The suspect's auto was first ob- served by the CPD southbound on Highway 904 traveling at a high rate of speed. When a unit of the CPD pursued the auto, the sus- pect allegedly stopped and took off when the officer attempted to approach the vehicle. In the chase that ensued, in- volving two units of the CPD, the suspect allegedly ran a stop sign, weaved over the center line several times, and when one unit of the CPD passed the suspect and got in front while the other squad car assumed a position immediately behind the suspect's vehicle, the CPD reported that the suspect attempted several times-both on the shoulder and oncoming lane--to pass the lead police auto. Police reported that they final- ly stopped the suspect on Lance Hill Road near a railroad cross- ing, taking the suspect into cus- tody after he allegedly stalled his engine while trying once again to get away. The suspect later failed a field sobriety test administered by CPD officers, was arrested and charged. Telephone rates to decrease Inland Empire Telephone Com- pany announced that due to a recent drop in the federal excise tax on telephone bills from a previous six percent to a new five percent formula, customers of the local firm will experience lower rates in 1977. It is estimated that 1977 custo- mers will realize a $275 million savings with the lower rate of five percent as compared to previous rates, with some $51 million of that amount being saved by cus- tomers of independent telephone operations such as IETC. The federal government first imposed the excise tax on phone bills during World War I, reput- edly as a temporary measure, but the levy was reinstituted during the Great Depression and reached a peak of 25 percent on long distance calls and 15 per- cent on local calls at one time. Eventually, the tax leveled off at 10 percent. Finally the Congress decided to gradually phase out the excise tax, with final elimination sched- uled for 1982. The rate will drop one percent each year from 1977 on until eliminated, but still the federal government is expectot to realize a $2 billion revenue from the levy in 1977 alone, the IETC reports. Cheney Church News Russian novelist topic A major passage from Russian novelist Dostoevsky's "The Brothers Karamazov" will be under discussion beginning this Sunday at the United Church of Christ [Congregational] as Ed- mund Yarwood, assistant profes- sor of Russian at Eastern Wash- ington State College leads a four week course entitled "Dostoev- sky and Religion." Beginning Jan. 2 at 9:30 a.m. Yarwood will discuss the Russian Orthodox Church and the Russian religious mind. The class will then read a famous passage from "The Brothers Karamazov" in which The Grand Inquisitor holds a discussion with Christ and ira- lies that God does exist but that He has made too many mistakes to be accepted. Dostoevsky takes issue with The Grand Inquisitor's thesis and the implications of both philosophical arguments will provide a basis for class dis- cussion. "Dostoevsky and Religion" is a continuation of a series of classes called Christianity and the Aca- demic Disciplines. Edmund Yar- wood received his Ph.D. at the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill where his major field of study was Russian prose. New pastor announced The Rev. Claire W. Kern, new pastor of the Cbeney Church of The Nazarene, will be installed in a special ceremony at the church at 6 p.m. on January 2. Pastor Kern will preach his first sermon at the church at the II a.m. service this Sunday. Fol- lowing the service, a potluck dinner will be held to acquaint the congregation with their new pas- tor and his family. Pastor Kern comes to Cheney from the Tri Cities where he pas- tared the Pasco Nazarene Church for 12 years. He was graduated from Northwest Nazarene Col- lege and has pastored in the Mid- west before coming to Washing- ton. Mr. and Mrs. Kern have three children. His son Jerry is mar- ried and lives in Nam His daughter Jean is a Northwest Nazarene his daughter Julie is a high school.

Claire W. Kern, new Kern has been a pastor J pastor of the Cheney Church of Pasco Church of The Naz The Nazarene, will deliver his for the past 12 years Opinion needed on grant From page 1 Citizen opinion is being consid- ered vital to the process and to the council's ability to properly represent the city's wishes in de- ciding the possible use of funds that could change the city's oper- ation or appearance, and the council is hoping for a favorable turnout as they move to set prior- ities for the grant application. Causes that were eyed during the 1975 application procedure-- such as the provision of industrial sites, water storage construction , on the west side of Cheney, the es- ' tablishment of a community cen- 'ter, and the possible relocation of a electrical substation--may also be revived for consideration along with other, more recent issues when the council moves toward the pre-application phase. Building use topic too The grant process is not the only issue that council members are asking the residents of Cben- ey to offer opinions on...the city's property committee is also seek- ing citizen advice on how to deal with the future of the present school administration building at 312 C Street when the current Cheney School District lease ends this summer. Councilman Dwayne Paul, chairman of the committee, is asking that Cheneyites send their suggestions to City Administra- tor Charlie Earl. The problem is that when the school district moves its adminis- trative offices into the old Fisher Junior High School building fol- lowing the completion of the new junior high school at N. Sixth and Betz Road, the city will not only lose in excess of $600 per month in rent, but will be left with an 18,000 square foot building that it has not budgeted maintenance and operation for. One suggestion is to sell the structure rather than keep it, while another is to fund the building through an annual special levy. What Paul and the members of the property committee are try- ing to determine is whether or not residents are willing to fund the building as a community center, library, museum, or senior citi- zen meeting place with additional taxes.
