Page Six, Monitor, Monroe, WA., August 4, 1977 Auglaa 11, 12, & 10:00 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. 103 West Main St. Monroe Next to Soma's Insurance Army AF Beat. Air Force's AF The Army's "air force" is made up of 9,200 aircraft, including 800 fixed wing and 8,400 rotary wing aircraft. Those who enlist in the Army may serve as air traffic con- trollers, crew chiefs or mech- anics while Army pilots must be commissioned or warrant Officers. It is interes ting to note that the U.S. Air Force has a total of 7,199 aircraft, some 2,000 less than the Army's "air force", according to the May issue of Air Force magazine. Call Sergeant Jan Hutchin- son at 568-9233 or 258-1623 for additional information on opportunities available in the Army's "air force." Debbie Jenkins, nee Debbie Kenney, daughter of Longacres leading trainer Martin Kenney, recently won her first race on a recognized TRA track while up on Fast Mate. She had two second places at Yakima Meadows just prior to the Longacres opening. She is one of the few distaff riders at the track and is an apprentice, riding with a five pound allowance at 110. When you talk to Debbie and she flashes that "let's be friends smile", one can detect a lot of determination which signals her desire to be a top journeyman jockey and she just could be in the near future. Up on the family farm in Snohomish, at the age of seven she began to break the yearlings fo ride and has been galloping horses at Longacres for her Dad since she was 14. As an apprentice she is not a contract rider but gives her father "first call" and does most of his riding. She works with a twisted and sore left arm in the mornings galloping horses with her brother Danny who will soon become an apprentice rider when he is 16. Debby injured her arm early one morning while galloping horses. Most jockeys (as does almost everybody) have their super- stitions and Debbie is no exception. For a long time she wore a pair of opal earrings but found she could not win while wearing them. Off they came and she won on First Mate. Could be that the extra weight of the jewelry kept her from winning. Debbie, a former high school cheerleader, is married to her high school sweetheart, Jim Jenkins, who works as a warehouse supervisor near South Center. She gave up high school graduation with her class last year to get married and begin her intended career as a rider. We talked to two other jockeys about Debbie and they commented, "We don't mind her beating us and she does have a great future potential for riding." One of them said, "Sometimes I wonder about her shoulder and arm strength. She's not weak but I would suggest that she might try some weight lifting to increase her strength. It really takes a great deal to manage some of these horses." Saturday, August 6: Mercer Girls Handicap for two-year old fillies at six furlongs for $12,500 added. Honors the pioneering sisters who came to Seattle around Cape Horn. Sunday, August 7: The Spokane Handicap at six and a half furlongs for three-year olds for $20,000 added. This one serves as the final stepping stone toward the August 21 Longacres Derby to be run at a mile and an eighth for $50,000 added. In '76 it was D.B.'s Dream from the 14th post position and from 12 lengths behind to win by two lengths. Board to Study School 'Use Fee Ill II II II ~e An administrative recom- mendation to charge a user fee for rental of Monroe School District facilities Will be discussed at a meeting of the Board of Education at 7:30 p.m., Monday, Aug. 8 in the district's board room on W. Columbia. The recommendation to in- itiate the fee came after a double levy loss in an effort to balance a deficit budget. Several athletic facilities and classrooms are used by many Monroe groups which pay a small user fee. "1977 continues tobe a strong year for SEAFIRST Our earnings were up 6% in the second quarter and up 7% for the first six months of the year. "We continued to show very strong growth in loans.
