Wednesday, December 28, 1983 The GLOBE--# Leatherman follows Seahawks to old hometown It will be a trip back into history for Jack Leatherman, who is preparing to leave this week for Miami and Satur- day's AFC semi-final featuring the Seattle Seahawks and Miami Dolphins. Leatherman, born and raised in Florida before settling in Marysville in the early 1950s, hasn't seen the insides of the Orange Bowl in 35 years. , "I didn't play any football; I played baseball and basketball," says Leatherman, who went to college at both Florida and Missouri. "But I was a spotter for football, sit- ting in the box calling off numbers and names. ' ' Leatherman was a cub reporter with the Florida Times Union in Jackson- ville in his senior year of high school in 1946 and in his first year of college at the University of Florida at Galnsville. In 1948, he transferred to Missouri to pursue studies in journalism -- dur- ing the time writing sports and general news for the campus newspaper. Circumstances prompted him to switch from journalism to a major in business administration, and saw him return to the University of Florida where he studied for another two years before a four-year enlistment in the Navy, beginning in 1951. Hc was transferred to the Pacific Northwest, where he met his wife, Maril~'n, in the spring of 1952. The following year, August of 1953, after his return from assignment in Japan, he and Marilyn were married. After his discharge from the Navy on Thanksgiving of 1954, the Leather- mans moved back to the east coast. But 16 months in New Jersey changed his mind about residing in the East, and they returned to the Pacific Northwest in 1955. He then earned his teaching creden- tials while attending Western Washington State College and the University of Washington -- and settl- ed down for a long teaching career in the Lake Stevens School District, beginning in 1958. He retired January of this year at the age of 54. Leatherman, looking for a local angle on this Saturday's game, has made one other trip back to his old stomping grounds -- that one last year when he got together again with some of-his old Julia Landon High School (Jacksonville) classmates for their 35th reunion. With a little extra time, Leather- man's hands have returned to the typewriter. Getting back into the sportswriting game can have its ups and downs, as Leatherman experienced on Christmas Eve at the Kingdomc. His ears still ringing from the roar of the celebrative crowd, Lcatherman departed the grandstands and headed for the Seahawks' post-game locker room "I was going to wait for one of my friends who had to run back upstairs for his stats computer," Leathcrman related of his post-game plans. "But he told me to just go in and he'd meet me inside. So, I did. There was no name on the door, but I didn't pay much attention.

A lot of people have expressed concern over how deregulation will affect the quality--and cost --of their telephone service. Well, as a General Telephone customer, rest assured. Basic monthly service rates will still be set by state regulatory agencies. And we'll continue to work closely with them to make sure you still get ...... the best possible service for the lowest possible cost. .... But some changes are in effect now. With more on the way. For instance, you already have the choice of buying or renting your phones. And the selection of styles, colors and features is virtually limitless. ~:~ In addition, you can save money by installing your own telephone outlets with easy-to-use do- it-yourself jacking kits. Further, since in many areas AT&T isn't the only long distance company anymore, it pays to shop around. Because it's become possible to save money with less expensive long distance rates from other companies. In any event, long distance rates will decrease gradually. In the past, AT&T's monopoly long dis- tance rates were set higher than necessary to help subsidize local service rates. In fact, roughly forty cents of every long distance dollar was used to offset the cost of providing local phone service. But growing competition in the long distance business and increasingly available technology are ending these subsidies. Concerned with this, the Congress, the Courts, the Federal Communi- cations Commission, and the telephone industry itself are continuing to review alternate pricing methods aimed at maintaining the world's finest phone service at continued, affordable rates. Eventually, General Telephone customers will one day be able to have even more ontrot of their phone bills. You'll be able to keep costs down by paying only for the local calls you make, and the services you use. And nothing more. Importantly, as we look to the future, you can expect fantastic new services from your phone. Services that let you do everything from ordering merchandise from your favorite stores to protect- ing your home with the most advanced security systems. And much, much more. So to answer the questions, "Does deregula- tion mean an end? Or a beginning?," it's both. Because it's really a matter of preserving the best of the old, while permitting--and encouraging-- the unlimited possibilities of the new. Changes for the better.
