Happy chilly Thursday, everyone. We've got another great collection of Valley Voice highlights for you today. Reporter Pia Hallenberg talked to Highland dancer Meghan Palmer, 16, who recently placed third at the Scottish World Highland Dancing Championships. Photographer Jesse Tinsley also took some great photos of some of her high flying moves.

Reporter Lisa Leinberger stopped by Pasadena Park Elementary, where musician Joel Brantley recently brought his anti-bullying message and his Elvis impersonation. He made the kids part of his show, complete with rubber guitars and Elvis sunglasses.

This week the Spokane Valley City Council allocated funding to outside agencies and looked at Community Development Block Grant funding. They also heard more than two hours of public comment against the XXXtreme Espresso coffee stand that features bikini baristas and topless Tuesdays and Thursday.
