Scott Maben reported in this morning's paper that a memorial service for Sen. Bob McCaslin will be held at 2 p.m. March 27 at University High School, 12420 E. 32nd Ave.
McCaslin spent 30 years in the Washington state senate and had been serving on the Spokane Valley city council since 2010. He stepped down from his seat in the senate in January because of ill health.
He was a U.S. Navy veteran of World War II, a graduate of Washington State University, worked for Kaiser Aluminum and later owned a real estate firm.
McCaslin died Sunday. He was 84.

A public memorial service for former Spokane Valley mayor Rich Munson will be held at 10:30 a.m. Saturday at CenterPlace, 2426 N. Discovery Place, according to an email from city councilman Bill Gothmann. Munson, 68, died on New Year's Day from complications of leukemia.
Current mayor Tom Towey announced today that the City of Spokane Valley will fly its flags at half staff Tuesday through Sunday in Munson's honor. Towey will read a proclamation declaring the observance at Tuesday's city council meeting.
Towey said he had no idea Munson was so ill. “Rich was a visionary,” he said. “We need more visionaries like him in our community.”
