In Thursday's Valley Voice we'll take a look at the Washington Drug Free Youth chapter at East Valley High School. It's the largest chapter in the state, though EVHS certainly isn't the largest high school. Reporter Lisa Leinberger will look at the group of teens who are willing to plege to stay drug free and submit to random drug tests to prove it.
Last week's Spokane Valley Planning Commission meeting was for the birds - literally. After hours of public testimony and discussion, the commission unanimously voted to recommend to the city council that the city's rules on chickens in residential areas be relaxed to allow more people to keep the feathered creatures in their back yards. Everyone who testified at the public hearing was in favor of the idea. The city council will have the final say on the matter.
We'll also have a report on the Liberty Lake Council meeting this week. Among other things, they discussed their council retreat that is set for next week at City Hall.
