I'm not sure where the morning went. I was so busy working on stories for Saturday's Valley Voice I forgot to write up some highlights from today's Valley Voice. I blame the sleep deprivation.

The Spokane Valley City Council voted this week to approve a 20-year contract with the Spokane County Regional Animal Protection Service (SCRAPS) for animal control services. City staff said the county hopes to have a new regional shelter complete by the beginning of 2014. The city of Spokane is expected to vote on a contract with SCRAPS later this month.

New Valley Voice reporter Nicole Hensley has a story on the crud going around local schools that is resulting in a high number of absences. There's been a short term reporting change in the newsroom and Nicole will be working for the Valley Voice for a couple months while Lisa Leinberger tries her hand at the night cops beat.

It seems as though New Year's Eve and New Years Day were busy for local law enforcement and the city of Liberty Lake is no different. Officers there responded to quite a few calls on New Year's Day, ranging from a bar brawl to a 13-year-old boy arrested for assaulting his mother.
