Now this is my kind of Monday - cool, breezy and sunny. While I revel in this too-short window of perfect weather, take a look at some of the stories in Saturday's Valley Voice. Several businesses along Sprague Avenue west of Sullivan Road report that they have made it through a recent road reconstruction project in better shape than they thought as motorists continued to find their way to stores and restaurants during construction. The project is now in its second phase and should be complete by the end of August.
Reporter Pia Hallenberg talked to local author Sharon Cramer, who writes for children and adults. She has just finished another children's book, this one dealing with monsters in a child's room. Reporter Lisa Leinberger has a story on an upcoming all-class reunion at West Valley High School. The school will also be inducting 12 former graduates into its Hall of Fame.
Correspondent Steve Christilaw put together a story on swimming lessons being offered by the city of Sokane Valley and why children should take them. The city offers lessons at its pools every summer.
