It looks like we get a sunny Monday morning for a change. We can take a look at some highlights from Saturday's Valley Voice while I mull the wisdom of working a regular shift the day after working the night shift. Reporter Lisa Leinberger has a story on the new University High School principal (and former engineer) Alan Robbins. He has strong roots just next door in Montana and will start his new job on July 1.

Holy Trinity Lutheran Church has been through a lot of change in the last year. The congregation nearly merged with two others, but the final vote failed. Nearly half the congregation left and the pastor quit. In moving forward the congregation decided to switch denominations.

The Greater Spokane Valley Chamber of Commerce said last week that it wasn't being forced out of its location on East Sprague. There was some confusion about initial statements that the Chamber was moving because the building was being sold.
