Saturday’s highlights

Members of the extended  Hughes family pose for a Christmas portrait in Spokane Valley.

The families recently purchased new homes with three of them swapping homes with other family members. SR photo/J. Bart Rayniak.

There was a lot to see in Saturday's Valley Voice. The Hughes family did a four-way house swap among themselves, buying each other's houses one after the other. Spokane Valley city councilman Dean Grafos has been advocating putting a city hall near CenterPlace in the future, but city staff has to check and see if that's possible to do on the land donated for a community center and park.

The Liberty Lake City Council finally passed its 2011 budget with a unanimous vote. Painful cuts were averted, but there was considerable discussion on combining the golf course superintendent and park superintendent positions. Plus the Spokane Valley Fire Department is nearly ready to award a bid for construction of a new administration building.
