In today's Valley Voice is my story on Dick Behm, a longtime Spokane Valley businessman and civic activist who died this week. His funeral is scheduled for 2 p.m. on Tuesday at Redeemer Lutheran.

Reporter Lisa Leinberger checked in on Central Valley's Early Childhood Education and Assistance Program (ECEAP) for low income children. The program is expanding in the face of increased demand. Reporter Pia Hallenberg talked to the organizers of a toilet paper drive. The project will collect the toilet paper for local shelters.

The Spokane East Stake of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints is having a Day of Service on Saturday. They have organized hundreds of volunteers to do work in three Spokane Valley Parks, two small pioneer cemeteries and some vacant land owned by Central Valley.

Longtime Valley businesman Dick Behm has died

Dick Behm, a fixture in Spokane Valley, died Monday. His family has owned businesses in the Valley for generations, including Behm's Creamery. He was a member of the Spokane Valley Business Association and this year he was named the Greater Spokane Valley Chamber of Commerce volunteer of the year. He was also a regular at Spokane Valley City Council meetings and was never shy about getting up to the podium and expressing his opinions.

There's a story here and it will also run in the Valley Voice tomorrow. The funeral is set for 2 p.m. Tuesday at Redeemer Lutheran Church, 3606 S. Shaffer Road.
