Today’s highlights

There are a lot of good stories in today's Valley Voice, but we'll be here all day if I try to link to them all. With that in mind, I'll just give everyone a few highlights. Reporter Lisa Leinberger recently visited the Rockin' B Ranch near Stateline, where owners Pamela and Scott Brownlee plan to hang up their spurs and head off into the sunset after this season is over. They have been offering cowboy supper shows with local musicians for 17 years.

The Spokane Valley City Council did its first edit of the proposed Bike and Pedestrian Master Program, replacing words like “increase” and “ensure” with “encourage” to make sure the plan doesn't tie their hands in any way. They'll take a detailed look at the rest of the proposed plan at a later day.

Spokane County Fire District 8 has approved putting its first ever maintenance and operations levy on the November ballot. The district is asking voters for $400,000 per year for two years to help backfill the $600,000 a year the district lost in declining property tax revenue.

Lisa also checked in with the volunteers at the East SCOPE in Otis Orchards as she nears the end of her tour of Spokane Valley area SCOPE stations.
