WALLS GO IN PLACE - Principal Jack Clark gets a demonstration bn how the new folding walls st Scootney Springs Elementary operate [rom Ray Trottier, installer with Dupree Specialties of Spokane. Two of the three wails were in place this week in the firth grade pod at Scootney. Two short wall sections and one long were approved last spring on a '~rial" basis by the local school board. The removeable walls were originally part of the Scootney plan, but later dropped due to cost. Handling the business of a $1.3 million operation is no small responsibility." Menser called on the councilmen to read the city code "from cover to cover" so they know the city laws. "The job will require time and sacrafice on your part," he added. Menser also noted that he had attended the last four sessions of the council and had seen most matters referred for surveys and reports. "I want to see more action and less surveys and reports from this council," he added.
