Well, I hope everyone had a nice, long weekend. I just have one question. Is it too early in the season to start complaining about the heat? Some kids in Millwood probably are complaining about it. In Saturday's Valley Voice correspondent Valerie Putnam reported that efforts to repair the city's wading pool aren't moving very fast and the pool is still dry. Whether it will open at all this year is still being debated.
Longtime Spokane Valley fixture Sally Jackson is back on the baseball field as a coach. She and her husband Ron both coached for many years before Ron died in April. Correspondent Steve Christilaw spoke to her about going back on the field.
The Spokane Valley Fire Department has finally received a piece of steel beam from the World Trade Center towers. The department is preparing an installation ceremony for Sept. 11. Reporter Lisa Leinberger checked in with Edgecliff SCOPE and spoke to volunteers about how they are working to improve their neighborhood. The Spokane Valley City Council had a lengthy discussion on whether to put the one-way Sprague issue on the November ballot. No final decision has been made yet, but the council did agree to move forward with a traffic study that will allow a cost estimate for the work to be prepared.
