It's here. Road construction season is about to begin and in today's Valley Voice there is a map of upcoming projects, plus details on which roads to avoid when. The big three are being impacted this year - Argonne, Sprague and Sullivan.

A local Girl Scout troop is focusing on fundraising efforts to save Millwood's wading pool. Correspondent Valerie Putnam has a story on their efforts. The city wanted to close the pool to save money, but the girls are determined to have the pool repaired instead.

Reporter Lisa Leinberger talked to students from West Valley High School who are entered in a robotics competition. Each team is given bins of parts to build a robot in six weeks that must complete required tasks. Teams from East Valley and Central Valley are also competing.
