What a wonderful piece. And what a wonderful cause. The Messiah Project 1995 is mounting a performance of, what else? George Friederick Handel's "Messiah." Their intent is to raise as much money as possible for Ogden Hall. "Messiah" was written in 1741 as a charity piece, and was performed as such for many years in London. The piece also has quite a history in Spokane, having been presented annually for years in most of the larger local venues. The leader for those presentations of yesteryear was Dr. Milton Johnson, who now conducts the annual Christmastime "Messiah" sing-along at First Presbyterian Church.
Hang on for a wild ride: 1995 will be one of the great years in entertainment history. The Spokane Arena open in September with a flood of events, the Spokane Symphony's 50th anniversary season will offer a wealth of riches, MCA Concerts Northwest is assembling the most aggressive season yet at The Gorge and the Festival at Sandpoint promises another strong season. Tips from Silver Mountain and Playfair indicate good years at both venues, though neither has released a schedule.

There are two kinds of high school tennis programs, says North Central girls coach Jack Shagool: those with club players and those without. "We're one of the teams without," he said. Shagool's plight exemplifies the Greater Spokane League, which is divided by the haves and have-nots.
An abnormally wet March rained on area tennis players, and Valley Greater Spokane League teams were no exception. The record-setting moisture has hampered practice planning by coaches, as well as determining lineups. "We haven't had a chance to get outside," said CV girls coach Stan Chalich. "I thought we would get rained out (of a match) the other day and had (practice) in the gym at 5:30 a.m. Sure enough we played, so it was a long, long day for them."

No wind. No rain. North Idaho College freshman Sarah Miller liked the change, especially the controlled climate of the indoor track and field season.
A batter without a number on his back swings late at a fastball barely moving 80 mph and can only lift it a few feet in the air. An old scout, sitting alone in a box behind the plate, shakes his head and doesn't bother to follow the flight of the ball. No, not even the popups have been major league this year. Now, following the strangest spring training in history, is there any reason to believe baseball will look any different when opening day arrives in a week?

In 1895, a century ago, Washington State started its track and field program. No, John Chaplin wasn't the coach. But he was from 1973 through last season, sticking out as the most visible figure in collegiate track in the region.
