Washingtonâ€™s minimum wage will increase to $9.04 per hour beginning Jan. 1, the Department of Labor & Industries announced on Friday.
L&I calculates the stateâ€™s minimum wage each year as required by Initiative 688, approved by state voters in 1998. The 37-cent increase reflects a 4.258 percent increase in the Consumer Price Index for Urban Wage Earners and Clerical Workers (CPI-W) since August 2010.
Funeral services will be held at 11 a.m. on Oct. 1 at the First Evangelical Free Church, 4920 Assembly St., Spokane, followed by a reception at the church for former Loon Lake resident John T. Dunham, 95, who passed away on Sept. 18.
Born on Dec. 5, 1915, at Loon Lake, as the seventh of nine children to Ted and Janey Dunham, he attended a one-room schoolhouse for four years on Garden Spot Road. After working on the family farm and hauling cordwood, he moved to Cheney in 1936 and was employed at Cheney Weeder until the fall of 1938 when he moved to Seattle.
The Cheney Blackhawks, the last unbeaten volleyball team in the Great Northern League, defeated Deer Park 25-15, 25-22, 25-21 on Thursday.
In each game, the teams played even at the start only to have the Blackhawks surge to a commanding lead.
In the first game, a 5-5 deadlock quickly became a 16-5 lead behind the serving of Cheneyâ€™s Sami Sheffels.
The Riverside Rams, who were pushed around for most of the game, shoved back at the most opportune time on Friday.
The Rams, who saw Lakeside run 49 plays in the first three quarters (as compared to 29 of their own), responded with a pair of fourth quarter touchdown to edge the Eagles 14-10 in Northeast A League action.
The win improved the Ramsâ€™ NE-A record to 1-1 and 2-2 overall. It was the NE-A opener for the Eagles (1-3).
â€śWe stopped them when we needed to,â€ť said Riverside interim head coach Mark Vannatter. â€śWe made plays.â€ť
