Greg just called (4:40 pm). The long awaited retro checks are in. He's taking them down to Stn 1 right now. There they will be sorted and then delivered to the rest of the stations. So, you can swing by your station this evening to pick it up, if you want. If you're on Relief, your check will be waiting for you at Stn1.

Maple Valley hiring

Received a very informative e-mail this morning from Maple Valley's Local 3062 President - Philip Knowles. It sounds like they have a pretty good department and are working hard to make it even better. And they're hiring. He has also offered to put up any of our firefighters who want to stay overnight. He's adds: "Our guys are up by 6:30 AM (7 AM tie-in).  If any of our union brothers need a cup of coffee or the use of the facilities, they are welcome.  Just have your guys knock on the slider door and let our guys know they are from Spokane." A great letter. If you would like to read the whole thing, I'll forward it to you. Thanks very much Phil for your fraternal solidarity.
