It feels a little odd to be at work on a Monday after the last couple of weeks, but here we are for the highlights from Saturday's Valley Voice. (And we have next Monday off, too. Cool.) The Spokane County Regional Animal Protection Service (SCRAPS) is feeling its way forward after a new regional shelter failed at the ballot box in November. A new location is still the plan, but where and when that might happen is yet to be determined.

I checked in with Advent Lutheran Church, which was created by the combination of Good Shepherd Lutheran and Christ Lutheran in May. The new church seems to be doing well as members consider what they want their church to be.

Correspondent Val Putnam attended the Millwood City Council meeting, where new council members were sworn in and a water plan was discussed. Correspondent Jennifer LaRue interviewed a youg rapper, Aubrey Major of West Valley High School. She writes her own songs and has already performed some concerts.
