      Cheney School District apologizes for religious assembly

      CHENEY, Wash. (AP) - Cheney School District officials have apologized for allowing a religious missionary to speak last March at a mandatory student assembly.

      Superintendent Deb Clemens says training is underway to prevent such mistakes in the future.

      The Spokesman-Review reports Gary Horton, a former Army Ranger, referred to children as lambs, himself as the sheepdog and the Lord as his shepherd.

      Horton also spoke to students last year in Othello and Warden.
