Let's just start by saying “Oops.” Somehow the ending of my story on Highway 27 from Rockford to Tekoa never got on the page. We got a bunch of calls about this over the weekend. We'll rerun the story (the whole story) in Thursday's Valley Voice. But you can also read the full stoy here.
Reporter Lisa Leinberger talked to the Earth Science Teacher of the Year Dorinda Belcher, who works at North Pines Middle School. She also has a news-packed education column, so check that out to see what is going on in the various school districts. The Spokane Valley City Council spent a day last week talking about the 2012 budget. No decisions were made, but they went through each department's budget.
Also, for those of you wondering what happened to the Liberty Lake police blotter, it didn't fit and will also run in Thursday's Valley Voice.
