In case you missed Saturday’s Valley Voice, check out these links to some of our stories from the weekend. Students at Sunrise Elementary had a fun time making paper masks and writing songs to go with them last week. Doctors at Valley Hospital and Medical Center reported treating more than 30 people over the long Thanksgiving weekend for sledding injuries at Valley Mission Park - everything from a punctured lung to fractured spines. People appear to be sledding in a closed area with more obstacles rather than the traditional sledding hill next to Splash Down.
The Spokane Valley Hearing Examiner has decided that the designation of a lab/husky mix named Casey as a dangerous dog by SCRAPS will stand. The owner had appealed the label, which includes requirements for extra insurance, sturdy fencing and following other restrictions. Spokane Valley Fire has approved a 2011 budget that includes construction of a new administration building and no property tax levy increase.
First I’d like to note that today is Veteran’s Day. If you know a veteran or a someone serving on active duty, give them your appreciation for their service. It is appropriate that one of the stories in today’s Valley Voice is about a Civil War veteran buried here who received one of the first Medals of Honor.
Other highlights are the new expansion of the Skills Center to the Valley to give teens job training and a report from a hearing last week to determine whether a dog named Casey should be labeled dangerous. One of our regular correspondents, Cindy Hval, has another touching column, this one about her youngest son and the Tooth Fairy. Her writing style just brings you right in and she is the master of tugging on heart strings.
