Today’s highlights

Good Thursday morning, everyone. It's time for some highlights from today's Valley Voice. The election results are in for races in Spokane Valley, Latah, Rockford and Spokane County Fire District 9. In Spokane Valley incumbent Gary Schimmels will face challenger Ed Pace in November.

Reporter Pia Hallenberg stopped by the Brain Freeze Creamery in Spokane Valley, where you can buy flavors like salted caramel or Crayonberry Sorbet. They are always in search of new flavors to make. The maple bar bacon flavor sounds interesting.

Reporter Lisa Leinberger checked into the annual inspection process that all school buses must pass. Recently the Washington State Patrol was working its way through the Central Valley School District bus fleet. Any vehicle that carries children must pass inspection at least once a year.

There's also an interesting Vocal Point submitted by two Newman Lake residents addressed to whoever is having repeated parties on nearby land, leaving behind beer bottles and smoldering camp fires.

Saturday’s highlights

We had a ton of news packed into Saturday's Valley Voice. I'm actually surprised we were able to fit it all in. Reporter Lisa Leinberger stopped in at East Valley Middle School on the first day of school to see how the students were dealing with having one less middle school in the district. She also has information on the bus problems East Valley has been having.

The new Port of Entry facility is open near Stateline. All the technological bells and whistles haven't been installed yet, but once everything is up and running things will be smoother for truck drivers as well as the WSP commercial vehicle enforcement officers.

The Spokane Valley City Council discussed improvements to its permit process and correspondent Valerie Putnam reports that the town of Millwood is considering several road construction projects.
