A recent class at Central Valley High School was not for the faint of heart, since students were dissecting beef hearts. The class is part of a new program to introduce students to science, technology, engineering and math called Project Lead the Way featured in a story in today's Valley Voice by reporter Lisa Leinberger.
The Spokane Valley City Council voted in a split decision to make the speed limit on Indiana east of Sullivan 35 miles per hour as far as the newly completed one-way couplet, which will now have a lower speed limit of 30 mph.
Lisa has another interesting story on early settler Stephen Liberty, who was recently honored with a monument at the new Liberty Lake Arboretum. In other Liberty Lake news, police responded to several shoplifting calls last week.
We're going to be bringing you a couple of interesting stories in tomorrow's Valley Voice. Reporter Lisa Leinberger has some background information on Stephen Liberty, one of the region's early settlers. A monument was recently dedicated in his honor at the new Liberty Lake arboretum. Lisa also will have a story on a few broken hearts at Central Valley High School. No, not that kind. It's the kind of hearts that get dissected on a lab table in science class.
A couple of lengthy discussions dominated last night's Spokane Valley City council meeting, which lasted until 10 p.m. even though several items on the agenda were postponed. Thursday's Valley Voice will have a report on the vote to change the speed limit on Indiana east of Sullivan. I'll have a report on the other discussions and votes in Saturday's Valley Voice.
