Today’s highlights

We've got another batch of good stuff for you in today's Valley Voice. Perhaps the most touching story is by correspondent Cindy Hval, who attended a wedding recently at the Orchard Crest Retirement Community in Spokane Valley. Kent Collings, 95, and Lorraine Lanterman, 77, met at the bridge table at the retirement facility and dated for four years before tying the knot.

Rainey Coffin talked to young ballroom dancers Bayley Brooks, 14, and Nicholas Kane, 16. The two are getting ready for the 2012 USA Dance Nationals in Baltimore. The Spokane Valley City Council tackled several different subjects at this week's meeting, including alcohol advertising and lodging tax fund distribution.

The Spokane Valley Fire Department found an additional $312,000 in reserves and a contingency fund to pay for the higher than expected bid to tear down and rebuild Station 6 on the west end of town. The Liberty Lake Police Department has had some success in identifying more vehicle prowl victims and suspects after a recent surge in thefts.
