Today’s highlights

The City of Spokane Valley has a new piece of art to boast about. Last week a crowd gathered for the unveiling of the Berry Picker, a larger-than-life bronze statue of a Native American woman. It is just behind CenterPlace and within shouting distance of another large bronze, this one of a mountain man, donated to the city a few years ago.

The Spokane Valley City Council spent a lot of time this week discussing a proposed ballot measure to convert Sprague and Appleway to two-way between University and Argonne. Some citizens testified that they thought the bond proposal was unnecessarily expensive and seemed to be designed to fail.

Reporter Lisa Leinberger talked to some longtime volunteers at West Valley SCOPE about their work, including hosting the annual West Valley Days event. The Spokane Valley Fire Department Commissioners voted this week on what wording to put on a plaque that will accompany a piece of steel beam from the World Trade Center towers when it is dedicated next month. They asked for suggestions from the community and selected their favorite.

Correspondent Val Putnam has a preview of Millwood Daze, which is set for Aug. 27. The list of things going on that day is long and includes breakfast, a fun run, live music, vendors, art festival and more. It sounds like it would be easy to spend the entire day in Millwood and still not be able to check it all out.
