Saturday’s highlights

Well now, how about those Eagles? If you were too busy Saturday basking in the glow of a national championship win, I've got some links to Valley Voice stories you can get caught up on. The East Valley School District board was forced to move its meeting when upset parents didn't leave the meeting room when the meeting was recessed. The furor is surrounding the district's plan to move to a pre K-8 school system.

The old Fairfield Good Samaritan is now under the ownership of the community non-profit organization Fairfield Care and is open to seniors looking for independent living apartments. Assisted living units will be open in the Spring once the appropriate licenses are in place.

Weather caused a scary momemt for some Spokane Valley Fire Department firefighers when their truck slid backwards down an icy hill as they were on their way to a call. The town of Millwood is considering chlorinating the town's water and the council also voted to remove parking restrictions on Laura Road between Frederick and Buckeye.

Coming on Saturday

We'll have a few good stories in the Saturday Valley Voice to go with your morning cup of coffee. Reporter Lisa Leinberger has a follow up on a contentious East Valley School District board meeting, where some parents were upset about the district's plan undo the traditional elementary school, middle school, high school model.

A group of resdients in Fairfield have banded together to form a non-profit to take over the facility that was formerly the Fairfield Good Samaritan nursing home and assisted living center. Fairfield Care has had a limited opening and more will be added as licenses are approved.

A crew of firefighters from Spokane Valley Fire had a scare last week when the engine they were riding in was forced to stop on a slippery hill and began to slide backwards. Luckily it went into the ditch, not off the edge of the embankment.

Christmas in Fairfield

Fairfield Care will celebrate its first Christmas with a community celebration. The meal will be potluck, but there will also be prizes, bingo, Christmas carols and Christmas presents for children 12 and under. If you’re looking for a bit of holiday cheer, head to 503 S. Hilltop Lane from 5 to 9 p.m. Saturday. Bring your favorite dish or dessert to share and a few $1 bills to buy Bingo cards. Who’s got a great casserole recipie?
