Saturday’s highlights

I trust we have all dusted ourselves off from last night's storm and are ready for another Monday. I made the mistake of having my windows open when the storm hit last night and had to scurry around closing them when I started choking on the dust. There is dusting in my future.

Now on to the highlights from Saturday's Valley Voice. A final community meeting was held last week to discuss the design of the Balfour Park expansion. Several well attended meetings were held in the spring to get input on what amenities to include and people who stopped by last week seemed pleased with the result. The Spokane County Library District has also installed a Little Free Library on the site in lieu of the expected Spokane Valley Library branch that is planned for the site.

Reporter Lisa Leinberger stopped by South Pines Elementary School to check out their Student, Parents Alternative Classroom Experience (SPACE). Parents help keep the class organized so the teacher has more time to spend with students.

Correspondent Valerie Putnam reports that the city of Millwood is considering whether to accept a $448,208 loan from the state to repalce a 60-year-old water main that runs under Buckeye Avenue. A special meeting is planned later this month so the council can vote on the loan.

Paving work is expected to begin next week on Indiana Avenue between Pines Road and Mirabeau Parkway and on Carnahan Road from Eighth Avenue to the city limits. The city is making one final road construction push before the weather becomes too cold for paving.
