Happy Thursday, everyone. Is anyone getting some snow? Before we start thinking about winter, though, we have to tackle Halloween. The students at West Valley's City School are putting on their annual haunted house this weekend. Reporter Lisa Leinberger has details on “Outbreak: Rise of the Zombie Hunters.”
The women of Millwood Presbyterian Church are preparing for their 25th annual bazaar this weekend. They have made almost everything that will be for sale. The bazaar is somewhat unique in that it doesn't allow outside vendors. The proceeds from the sale benefit local charities.
The Spokane Valley City Council is discussing whether to change the setback and building height requirements for multi-family housing that sits next to single family homes. The Central Valley School District is discussing whether to sell 23 acres of land in Liberty Lake that it isn't using to the city of Liberty Lake for $10. No, that isn't a typo. The city could use the space for playfields and if the district wants the land back in the future it can buy it back for the same price. A public hearing and vote are scheduled for the district's next board meeting on Nov. 13.

Millwood Presbyterian Church will continue its speaker series on human rights with a talk by Coeur d'Alene resident Tony Stewart tonight at 7 p.m. in the church, located at 3223 N. Marguerite Road. He plans to speak on racism in the Northwest.
Stewart was a founding member of the Kootenai County Task Force on Human Relations in 1981, when a local white supremacist group was going strong. He was awarded the National Education Association's 2010 H. Councill Trenholm Memorial Civil Rights Award and the 2008 Carl Maxey Racial Justice Award from the Spokane YMCA.
The first 125 people to arrive at 6 p.m. can have an authentic Mexican taco dinner provided by Taco Los Panchos and Taco Works, both businesses in Coeur d'Alene that have recently been the target of racist demonstrations. The suggested donation for the dinner is $6; admission to the talk is free.
