Happy 5th of July. I hope everyone has recovered from last night's festivities enough to check out some highlights from today's Valley Voice. Reporter Lisa Leinberger has a couple good stories. The Central Valley School District is offering summer school classes focusing on Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathmatics (STEM). Last week students did experiments with helium-filled Mylar balloons.
Lisa also visited Wheeler's Farm Market and Fresh Start Produce in Otis Orchards as she continues her tour of fruit stands in the Spokane Valley area.The provide local produce and other items to hungry shoppers.
The Spokane Valley Planning Commission last week gave their recommendation of approval to the goals and policies of the Shoreline Master Program. The commission had been reviewing the goals and policies for months. They now go to the City Council for approval.
