It's a fine and lovely Monday morning out there - at least until the clouds move in later - so let's take a look at a few highlights from Saturday's Valley Voice. St. John Vianney Church and its neighbors are no longer in discussions about a zoning request that would allow the construction of a low income senior housing complex, but the rezone is still moving through the process. Correspondent Mike Vlahovich has a story on retiring high school track and field coach Howard Dolphin. He worked at East Valley High School for many years, then moved on to West Valley High School.
Reporter Lisa Lienberger has a look at the huge new sign at Liberty High School in Spangle. It celebrates academic and musical achievements as well as sports awards. Those who follow the actions of the Spokane Valley City Council will recognize the names of the latest people to throw their hat in the ring for the November 2011 elections. DeeDee Loberg has filed to run against appointee Arne Woodard and Ben Wick has filed to run for the seat held by Bill Gothmann, who has said he will not run for re-election.
On a side note, this week is the official filing week for all positions that will be on the ballot. Candidates must file through the Spokane County Elections Office by the end of the day Friday. We have a list of all positions up for election this fall here.
