Good morning and happy Thursday. As usual we have some interesting highlights from today's Valley Voice. Reporter Lisa Leinberger stopped by North Pines Middle School, which recently got a $5,000 grant to buy new library books. The librarian was happily able to replace "DOS for Dummies" with a book on the history of Facebook.

The Spokane Valley City Council got its first look at a preliminary list of proposed street preservation projects for 2013. The list is fairly extensive and calls for 17 different sections of road to get a grind and overlay or just an overlay of new pavement.

Spokane Valley Fire Department Commissioner Monte Nesbitt has announced his immediate resignation due to health reasons. He fell ill last week and was diagnosed with stress-induced cardiomyopathy after several days of tests.

For those of you looking for an update on Miss Chicken, correspondent Stefanie Pettit has a column today about her most recent visit with her feathered friend.
