Saturday’s highlights

Ah, my cold front has arrived. It's a shame it won't be here longer than a day or two, but I'll take what I can get. Meanwhile, there are some highlights from Saturday's Valley Voice to bring you in case you missed them. The Spokane Valley City Council is having a special meeting at 6 p.m. tonight to decide whether to ask voters for a $6.4 million bond to pay to switch Sprague and Appleway to two-way between University and Argonne. But as it turns out, there is a $4.2 million grant the city could get to pay for the same project.

In other city news, the council also decided to trim back the list of road projects they will seek grants for. They agreed that their priority should be replacement of the Sullivan Road bridge, which has weight restrictions in place. The council members are worried if they tackle too many road projects, they won't have enough left for the bridge.

Correspondent Valerie Putnam has a nice story on a woman who has started a new business based on her love of gardening. Reporter Lisa Leinberger, who has been visiting area SCOPE stations, checked in with University SCOPE and talked to volunteers about what they do to protect their neighborhood.
