It's a smokey Monday morning out there, so let's stay inside with a cup of coffee and take a look at some highlights from Saturday's Valley Voice. Reporter Lisa Leinberger stopped by the Valley HUB Sports Center as its prepares to celebrate its fifth anniversary. The center struggled for years, but is now operating in the black and hosts a wide variety of activities and events.
The Episcopal Church of the Resurrection has a new priest-in-charge, the Rev. Linda Bartholomew. She came to Spokane Valley after eight years in New York City and says she has already fallen in love with the area. Two elementary schools in the Central Valley district, Adams and Progress elementary schools, recently got a visit from Ronald McDonald himself to recognize their donations of pop tops for the Ronald McDonald House and Lisa was there to write about it.
This week's story on calls received by the Spokane Valley Fire Department includes a rather spectacular picture from the department of an abondoned farm house burning down in a 12 acre brush fire off Harvard Road.
