We managed to pack a bunch of news into Saturday's Valley Voice, so let's get on to some highlights. Neighbors in the area of Sprague Ave. and Hodges Road are unhappy with a proposed development called Covey Glen North that would put 46 homes on 8.57 acres. They voiced their displeasure at a hearing before the Spokane Valley Hearing Examiner last week.
Correspondent Valerie Putnam has a story on the expansion of the Company Ballet School in Millwood. The school is adding new space that will be used to offer classes to adults and children. Reporter Nicole Hensley takes a look at a series of Spokane Valley history talks being offered by the Spokane Valley Heritage Museum and the Spokane Valley Library. The first talk is set for Wednesday.
Nicole also has information on a new Spokane County Library District plan to give every middle school student a library card that can be used online or at the library.
Wilma Turner, the owner of Iron Horse Kennel in Newman Lake, has appealed the decision by SCRAPS to not renew her commercial kennel license after repeated inspection failures. A hearing was held last week and there could be a recommendation as soon as this week. The Spokane County Commissioners will have the final say.
