In today's Valley Voice, the Spokane Country Regional Animal Protection Service will lose its after hours drop off room in January. People have been dropping off animals from other counties and abandoning pets there. The agency is also cramped for space and needs the room.
SCORE, a non-profit agency that helps local businesses, helped the owners of a Liberty Lake pet boutique open their doors. Also, former Spokane Valley city councilman Dick Denenny will be given the 2010 Citizen of the Year award in January by the Greater Spokane Valley Chamber of Commerce.
There is also some Valley news in the main paper today. Reporter Bert Caldwell writes that Greenstone Development Co. and its owner, Jim Frank, have been fined by the Department of Ecology for removing trees from a protected shoreline area at Liberty Lake. Frank is disputing the fine.
