Saturday’s highlights

Declaring yourself not cold while you shiver in 10 degree weather is a teenage thing. Teens venturing out in clothing best suited for 60 degree weather is nothing new and reporter Lisa Leinberger talked to some of those teens during a recent cold snap to find out just what they're thinking.

East Valley High School graduate Tyler Jolley is now a senior at Eastern Washington University and played a role in the recent football championship. A public memorial service is coming up Saturday for former SCRAPS animal behaviorist Patricia Simonet, who died recently of cancer.

We've got a mixture of fun and sadness coming your way in the Saturday Valley Voice. Animal lovers are mourning the loss of Patricia Simonet, an animal behaviorist who worked at SCRAPS and was known for discovering dog laughter. She died of cancer last month and a public memorial service is set for Jan. 22 at 1 p.m. at the Spokane Buddhist Temple.

Reporter Lisa Leinberger will take a look at just what teenagers are thinking when they leave the house in snowy, bitter weather with no coats and wildly inappropriate clothing or footwear. I saw a teenager wearing shorts last week on a day when the temperature was struggling to top 10 degrees. Brrrr!

The Liberty Lake crime blotter should make an appearance after being held over from Thursday. The garage burglar may be back in town, so luck up tight. Also, Valley Meals on Wheels will begin serving lunch in Otis Orchards next week.
