You'd better hold on to your hats, it's a really windy day out there. Perfect weather to stay in and read the Valley Voice. Reporter Lisa Leinberger looked at East Valley's Continuous Curriculum School to see how a K-8 school operates. The district is working on plans to close the middle schools and use K-8 schools instead.

The Spokane Valley City Council interviewed four candidates for a vacant city council seat on Tuesday. You can find some biographical information on all five people the council had voted to interview here. Teenagers and toy guns don't mix, as Liberty Lake Police officers learned. One teen reportedly pointed a fake gun at an officer in an unmarked patrol car.

Correspondent Stefanie Pettit has information on Ben Burr, who has a street, trail and park named after him. In a way he's a household name, yet few know who he was.
