There are a few goodies on tap for tomorrow's Valley Voice. A Liberty Lake city council member was so frustrated during Tueday's meeting focusing on the 2011 budget that she got up and walked out.

No big decisions during this week's study session, but several interesting votes are scheduled for next week.

And the recent bad weather appears to have kept car prowling thieves in Liberty Lake from making the rounds. We'll see if that remains the case during the relatively warm weather this week.
