Local shoppers have been eagerly awaiting the grand opening of the new H&M store in the Spokane Valley Mall. The fashion retailer is known for its low prices. SR reporter Pia Hallenberg volunteered (without requiring much convincing) to go to today's grand opening and check it out. Apparently there was a line in advance of the store's noon opening and now there's a line to the cashier. It's on the south side of the mall next to the theater. Photo by Pia Hallenberg.
After last week's rescue of a dog locked in a hot car at the Spokane Valley Mall, PETA has sent a letter to the Spokane Valley Mall asking it to paint the organization's “Too Hot for Spot” logo in the mall's parking spaces. The logo pictures a dog locked inside a car with the words “In hot weather, leave dogs at home.” This would seem to be common sense to me, but such cases are reported every year so people aren't getting the message. Do you think logos painted in the parking lot would be effective? Has anyone seen these elsewhere?
The city of Spokane Valley will have its first ever “City Hall at the Mall” event Wednesday at the Spokane Valley Mall. It's an experiment with bringing City Hall and its resources to the community.

If you have a question about something that requires an answer from an expert, the city has put together a schedule of what time slot people should attend (click here).
Here's the rundown: 10 a.m.-12:45 p.m. - Talk with a representative of the Spokane Valley Police Department and get information on upcoming street projects; 12:45-3:30 p.m. - Talk traffic with the city's traffic engineer or fire safety with a representative of the Spokane Valley Fire Department; 3:30-6:15 p.m. - Discuss problems with a code compliance officers and learn about summer recreation programs; 6:15-9 p.m. - Request a city park reservation and learn about the Sullivan Road Bridge replacement project.

If you haven't been by the Spokane Valley Mall lately, you might not have noticed that Regal Cinemas is offering its summer movies again. The theater shows a double feature of kid-friendly movies every Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday at 10 a.m. for only $1. The movies change each week. This week the featured movies are “Cats and Dogs: The Revenge of Kitty Galore” and “Megamind.” Next week kids can settle in and watch “Alpha and Omega” and “Diary of a Wimpy Kid.” The movies will continue through Aug. 18.

For the second time in a week an Idaho resident has been arrested for pleasuring himself in public in Spokane Valley. Is it a full moon or something? Why the sudden migration? Anyway, a Post Falls man was arrested Sunday while masturbating in the Spokane Valley Mall parking lot. His escapades were caught on tape and the man was quickly tracked down. And last week a Rathdrum man was arrested after he was caught with his pants down in a coffee shop drive through. Reporter Meghann Cuniff has more details here.
Yesterday I posted about the police being at the Spokane Valley Mall to talk about electronic gadgets, but I lost track of what day it was. The event is actually today. Mea culpa.
So, to recap: a digital forensics expert from the Spokane County Sheriff's Office and a representative from Verizon Wireless will be at the Mall until 8 p.m. today to talk about phone safety and smart phone capabilities, including how parents can find and view files, applications and photographs that can be hidden on smart phones by their teens. This is part of the Take 25 campaign to encourage parents to take 25 mintues to talk to their children about safety.
