Good Monday morning everyone. (Well, it will be after I have a second cup of coffee.) It's time to take a look at Saturday's Valley Voice in case you missed any of our great stories. Reporter Pia Hallenberg interviewed West Valley High School student Joey Bird, who started racing go-karts at the age of eight. He has won six championships and several awards and is moving up to bigger and more powerful race cars.
The Spokane County Library District welcomed a new director this month, Nancy Ledeboer. She said she is pleased at how well maintained the libraries are, the good condition of the district's books and the willingness of staff to take change in stride.
Reporter Lisa Leinberger has a story on a generous $10,000 donation from the Intersection Church to North Pines Middle School. The gift was unexpected and the school is still considering how to put the donation to good use.
Residents on the west end of Spokane Valley will notice that engines from the Spokane Fire Department are responding to 911 calls for help in addition to crews from the Spokane Valley Fire Department. Valley Fire's Station 6 is being torn down and replaced and the crew has moved to Station 1 near University City. The Spokane Fire Department will be responding in certain areas to make sure all emergency calls get a timely response.
