Here I am with your usual dose of Thursday Valley Voice highlights, even if it is (much) later than normal. But there's no law against reading the daily paper with dinner instead of breakfast, right? Correspondent Jill Barville recently talked with Susie Leonard Weller, who is preparing to participate in the Valley Girl Triathlon Sunday in Liberty Lake. It is the colon cancer survivor's first triathlon.

Reporter Lisa Lienberger headed down to the Fairfield Library lately for a special storytime in Salish. It's part of the special summer activities being hosted by the Spokane County Library District.

The Spokane Valley City Council spent nearly two hours Tuesday talking about economic development. The council was discussing what the city can do immediately to help boost business and what can be done in the long term. Construction is coming to the Sullivan and Indiana intersection in August. There will be traffic flowing through during construction, but turning options will be limited. It sounds like it will be a bit messy, so start planning alternative routes now.
