It's time to check out the highlights from today's Valley Voice as we pause mid-way between Christmas and New Year's. Reporter Lisa Leinberger stopped in at East Valley High School's traditional formal holiday lunch that they do every year right before winter break. No one is quite sure how long the tradition has lasted, but everyone seems to love it.
The Spokane Valley City Council once again discussed the renewal of the city's street maintenance contract. Some council members have been pushing to rebid the contract early before it ends. At the end of the night the council agreed to bring the renewal back for a vote at the Jan. 10 meeting. Former East Valley School District superintendent Chuck Stocker has been named the citizen of the year by the Spokane Valley Chamber of Commerce. Though he officially retired years ago, he spends much of his days volunteering in the community.
Correspondent Cindy Hval has a story on an interesting new fitness business, Spokane Aerial Performance Arts, that sends students shimmying up long swaths of silk suspended from the ceiling.
