Welcome to another Monday morning. We've got several highlights from Saturday's Valley Voice. Reporter Lisa Leinberger recently spend another day at the East Farms STEAM Magnet School for an entry for her ongoing East Farms Diary. The school, which focuses on science, technology, engineering, arts and math, had a day of hands on activities where students could do everything from making a clay pot to throwing a football.

Lisa also met up with students taking classes through the new Spokane Valley Tech skills center that is still under construction. The center is bringing together the Central Valley, West Valley, East Valley and Freeman school districts. The program is also open to students from other districts.

Liberty Lake Mayor Steve Peterson recently signed up to be tested on a driving simulator that the city's insurance company brought to town. It tested the reactions of city employees to bad weather, failed brakes, blown tires and other scenarios.
