You may need two cups of coffee this morning in order to have enough time to read everything in today's Valley Voice. East Valley School District superintendent John Glenewinkel recently spent some time answering reporter Lisa Leinberger's questions about the proposed re-visioning plan for the district and how that relates to a possible construction bond.

The Spokane Valley City Council met this week to approve the procedure for filling the vacant council seat and to hear a report on the full-width paving program that goes with the installation of sewer lines by Spokane County. Correspondent Cindy Hval has a nice story on Healing Hearts Northwest, a group of local doctors and nurses who travel to Rwanda to perform needed heart surgeries. The group has two fundraisers coming up this month to help pay for the next trip.

The Liberty Lake City Council welcomed a new parks and open spaces superintendent during its meeting this week. Also in Liberty Lake, a resident spotted a garage burglar who's description matches that of the man police arrested for similar crimes in Liberty Lake in December.

Coming Thursday

A lof ot questions and concerns have been floating around out there on the re-visioning plan proposed by the East Valley School District. In Thursday's Valley Voice, reporter Lisa Leinberger has a lengthy Q&A with East Valley superintendent John Glenewinkel that should answer a lot of questions about the how and why.

The Liberty Lake Police Department has been kept hopping lately. Four garage burglaries and vehicle prowls were reported in one night recently. One of the residents spotted a man near his garage. The description of the man and his car match those of the man police arrested in December for similar crimes in Liberty Lake, according to police chief Brian Asmus. A distressing number of the cars and garages that have been burglarized were unlocked, so everyone please remember to lock up. Also remember to bring your valuables inside at night.

The Spokane Valley City Council had a brief meeting Tuesday and formally adopted the procedure to fill the vacant city council seat. The plan is to have a new council member on the dias by the end of March.
