Ted Clark – I’d Like You to Know

“I’ve been very well supported.”

For a lot of the times that we complain about Spokane and the community, and the things, and the history . . . By and large it’s been a good place to live. [Gene and I have] really had a very good life here. We’ve had good experiences.

We are half of the year in Palm Springs now. It’s a whole different world. But when we really got down to saying “Where’s home? Where are our roots?” Once my mother died, I’m not committed to Spokane anymore by family. We both said, “Yeah, Spokane’s home. That’ll be the roots, and we’ll go and do, but come back here.” It’s been good to me.

By and large, I’ve been very well supported, through the years of teaching, administration, board members, colleagues. It’s been a very positive experience.
