Jerry Stout puts the finishing touches on his snowman he built in his Upriver Drive apple orchard on Thursday. “The snow is actually working, and I’m out of work, so I’ve got the time,” remarked the 65-year-old. He found buttons in his wife’s sewing kit for eyes, painted a night light for the nose, and used yarn for the mouth. SR photo/Bart Rayniak
Recent snow has been a boon for sledders but people need to be careful when zipping down a hard packed, icy hill. The emergency room at the Valley Hospital and Medical Center saw more than 30 injured sledders over the extended Thanksgiving weekend with broken bones and other serious injuries. Take a look at the story in Saturday’s Valley Voice.
Also coming Saturday is a peek into classrooms at Sunrise Elementary when students got to make paper masks. Plus Spokane Valley Fire has been dealing with surge in calls related to the bad weather, including more car accidents and broken water and sprinkler system pipes.
