Today’s highlights

I'm sorry I'm so late in posting some highlights from today's Valley Voice, but I spent all morning out at a mock crash at East Valley High School and have been furiously typing ever since. (Look for that story in Saturday's Valley Voice.) For today we have a nice package from reporter Lisa Leinberger, who profiled three retiring school teachers.

The featured teachers are: Wayne McKnight of West Valley High School, who has been with the district for 39 years and is now the athletic director; Marla Pflanz of East Valley High School, who founded the Strolling Strings during her 35 year career; and Kim Wellington of Central Valley High School, who started out teaching shop 35 years ago.

The city of Spokane Valley took in a $3 million budget surplus at the end of 2012. Sales tax revenue was up and expenses were down. No decision has been made yet what to do with the money and the city's finance director said he doesn't expect a repeat of the windfall at the end of this year.
