Cut county budget nearly 50 per cent

A straight-across slash of over 45 per cent is made in the budget for Adams County for the ensuing year, according to the estimate which is now in the hands of the county auditor.

Nearly every county office is asking for less money than the last year. But the big cut comes in the amount of money levied for roads. No levy at all is to be made for the Road and BRidge Fund.

Salkield pushes

road maintenance

Councilman Jay Salkield raised the question of the need for streets in Ritzville to be under some type of yearly maintenance program at the city council meeting Tuesday night.

Salkield said, "We should spend so much each year for street maintenance, particularly sealing.

"We can obtain a sealer to do the job at a cost of a little over 60 cents per gallon. One tankload will take care of four miles of roadway."

Brian Hart is named

1997 youth volunteer

Life Care Center of Ritzville's Youth Volunteer nominee for 1997 is Brian Hart of Connell.

Volunteerism is not an unfamiliar word for this extraordinary young man. He not only has been traveling 40 miles one way to bring the lives of LCC residents for the past four years at least one evening a month with his music therapy, but also plays for a nursing home in Kennewick.

Hart is also a Sunday school teacher, substitute piano player for his church, volunteers at the Benton-Franklin County Volunteer Center and has raised money for the Cystic Fibrosis Foundation.
