If you are looking for something indoors to do with the kids tonight for Halloween, there are several options available.

Saturday’s highlights

We've got another damp Monday morning here in the Northwest, so grab a cup of coffee and settle in for some Saturday Valley Voice highlights. Reporter Lisa Leinberger talked to Spokane Valley resident Kristie Gaffney, who has gone all out in decorating her home for Halloween. Most of it is modeled after the Haunted Mansion at Disneyland.

A lot of people probably don't know that there is a tiny Spokane County Sheriff's Office crime prevention office in the Spokane Valley Mall. I must say that my interview with the two deputies who work out of the office was the first time I've ever had someone get up and run out of the room in the middle of an interview. They were called on to stop a shoplifter from leaving the mall. Their job is mostly working with the community by offering classes and presentations on a wide variety of crime prevention topics.

Lisa also has a story on the University High School production of “Les Miserables.” The elaborate musical with a huge cast will take the stage starting Nov. 1. And about that stage - it now revolves. Construction was completed over the summer.

Last week the Spokane Valley City Council spent a lot of time discussing what comprehensive plan amendments the city should consider this year. Amendments can only be considered once a year and the application deadline is Nov. 1.

Pumpkin carving contest

If you have a great idea for a jack-o-lantern design, you might want to head south tomorrow for a pumpkin carving contest in Fairfield. Just bring your own cleaned out pumpkin and carving tools to the Fairfield Community Center on Main Street at 6 p.m.

Prizes will be given for the scariest, funniest and most creative pumpkins. All ages are welcome to participate. There will also be refreshments. To get to Fairfield, head south from Spokane Valley on Highway 27. Take a left on Main Street when you get to Fairfield.
