We managed to pack a bunch of interesting stories in Saturday's Valley Voice, starting with the touching story by correspondent Steve Christilaw about Central Valley High School soccer player Joseph Guerrinha. He's back in the game after suffering a serious concussion that he has no memory of.
The Spokane Valley City Council discussed projects to improve the Mission trailhead in Greenacres and establish railroad quiet zones west of Millwood. The were also questions as to whether the city counld afford to do the work. In other City news, newly appointed councilman Arne Woodard has already filed the required paperwork to run in the November election.
Correspondent Juli Bergstrom-Wasson has a look at the new Five Guys Burgers and Fries location at Sprague and Sullivan. I went in once to check it out and the line was nearly out the door. But you can munch on free peanuts while you wait and watching the kitchen staff at work is entertaining.
The sun is shining (for now) and it's Friday (thank goodness), so it's time to look ahead at what is in store for the Saturday Valley Voice. I'll have the second helping of news from this week's Spokane Valley City Council meeting. They discussed projects that would improve the Mission Avenue trailhead in Greenacres and establish quiet zones on the Union Pacific line west of Millwood. They also talked about whether they had funding to do the work.
The Spokane Valley Chamber of Commerce has announced the end of the annual Miss Spokane Valley competition. Another person has filed paperwork to run for City Council in November and reporter Lisa Leinberger will have a story on Hearth Homes, which provides housing for homeless women. The organization just got a large donation that enabled it to buy a house.
