Well, it's Thursday again and time for some more Valley Voice highlights. Five of the 14 Lilac Princesses live in the Valley area. They attend University High School, Valley Christian, Central Valley High School, Gonzaga Prep and The Oaks Christian Academy. Today's Valley Voice includes interviews with all five. The Lilac Queen and her court will be selected Sunday.
As expected, the Spokane Valley City Council voted this week to remove the City Center zone from the Sprague/Appleway Revitalization Plan and relplace it with mixed use zoning. Today's story includes a lot of public comment from both sides of the issue.
