The body of a 21-year-old man who went missing last night while tubing the Spokane River with friends was recovered this morning near the Mission Ave. trailhead of the Centennial Trail near Greenacres. The man, whose name has not been released, was not wearing a life jacket. The search had to be called off last night because of thunderstorms, but resumed this morning. Click here for more details. He is the fourth person to drown in area lakes and rivers in the last week.
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.
