Saturday's Valley Voice included news from nearly every corner of the Spokane Valley area. Reporter Lisa Leinberger worte about improvements to the East Valley garden at Wellesley and Sullivan, which will include beds for community members who want to grow their own vegetables. She also has a story about the East Valley school board's discussions on what happens now after the bond vote failed and state budget cuts are on the horizon.

The small Liberty Lake Police Department is down by two officers after they unexpectedly resigned for personal reasons. The department's detective and sergeant are taking patrol shifts to try and fill the gap until replacements can be hired.

Correspondent Valerie Putnam has a report on a special Millwood City Council meeting last week. The council heard and approved a plan by a group of residents to raise $10,000 to save the wading pool in Millwood City Park. The pool will not open until the money is raised. It would pay to resurface and repair the pool. Donations can be made at the Bank of America in Millwood.

Coming on Saturday

Here's a quick look at what is coming in the Valley Voice on Saturday. There have been some unexpected changes to the Liberty Lake Police Department and I'll take a look at what is next. Citizens in Millwood who have been trying to save the town's wading pool are moving forward with their plans. Reporter Lisa Leinberger will also have a look at the small farm run by the East Valley School District and changes that are in store this year.

Now, all everyone has to do is hope for good weather on Sunday for all the Bloomsday participants. Go forth and run! Of course, walking it works too.
