Edgecliff SCOPE breakfast

The volunteers of Edgecliff SCOPE will be putting on a fundraising breakfast Sunday morning from 8 to 11 a.m. at the VFW, 212 S. David. The menu includes pancakes, sausage, scrambled eggs and beverages. The cost is $6 for adults and $4 for children ages 6-10. Kids five and under are free.

The meal benefits Edgecliff SCOPE and Inland Northwest Honor Flight, so head over there with the family Sunday morning if you don't feel liking cooking. Honor Flight sends World War II veterans on a trip to Washington, D.C., to see the World War II memorial.

Saturday’s highlights

Well, I hope everyone had a nice, long weekend. I just have one question. Is it too early in the season to start complaining about the heat? Some kids in Millwood probably are complaining about it. In Saturday's Valley Voice correspondent Valerie Putnam reported that efforts to repair the city's wading pool aren't moving very fast and the pool is still dry. Whether it will open at all this year is still being debated.

Longtime Spokane Valley fixture Sally Jackson is back on the baseball field as a coach. She and her husband Ron both coached for many years before Ron died in April. Correspondent Steve Christilaw spoke to her about going back on the field.

The Spokane Valley Fire Department has finally received a piece of steel beam from the World Trade Center towers. The department is preparing an installation ceremony for Sept. 11. Reporter Lisa Leinberger checked in with Edgecliff SCOPE and spoke to volunteers about how they are working to improve their neighborhood. The Spokane Valley City Council had a lengthy discussion on whether to put the one-way Sprague issue on the November ballot. No final decision has been made yet, but the council did agree to move forward with a traffic study that will allow a cost estimate for the work to be prepared.

Coming on Saturday

We'll have a great Valley Voice on Saturday to help everyone kick off their Fourth of July weekend on a proper note. The Spokane Valley Fire Department is creating plans for a ceremony to dedicate a piece of steel beam that was recovered after the World Trade Center towers collapsed on Sept. 11, 2001. I'll have information on how the public can be involved in that.

There will be an update on the Millwood wading pool and reporter Lisa Leinberger stopped by Edgecliff SCOPE to see what the group of volunteers is up to. The Spokane Valley City Council had a discussion this week on whether to pay for a traffic study in preparation for putting the issue of one-way Sprague on the November ballot. The decided to move forward with the study and the vote on whether to put the issue on the ballot must be made by Aug. 15.

I won't post my story links on Monday as usual because of the holiday. I'll see you back here Tuesday morning.
