Police talk electronics at Spokane Valley Mall

Today is the second day of the Take 25 campaign organized by local law enforcement agencies to encourage parents to take 25 minutes to talk to their children about safety. Today a digital forensics expert from the Spokane County Sheriff's Office and a representative from Verizon Wireless will be at the Spokane Valley Mall until 8 p.m. They will be available 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. Since most parents (like me) tend to be ignorant of all the bells and whistles on all these newfangled electronic gadgets, heading down there will probably be an educational experience.  

The circus is in town

You may have noticed a huge tent in the parking lot of the Spokane Valley Mall. This, of course, means that the Shrine Circus is back in town. If you're looking for something to do this weekend, there will be shows today, Saturday and Sunday before everything is packed up and hauled off to the next city.

The tent is home to clowns, horses, elephants, acrobats and a high diver. Performance times are 3 and 7:30 p.m. today; 11 a.m., 3 p.m. and 7:30 p.m. Saturday; and 1 and 5 p.m. on Sunday. Tickets are $10 and are available at the Albertsons in Liberty Lake and on Saturday and Sunday will also be available at the Spokane Valley Mall kiosk.

Tree of Sharing update

Yesterday’s Spokane Valley Fire shopping trip at the Valley Mall to benefit the Tree of Sharing was a rousing success. Pictured are some of the 43 firefighters and department employees who picked up 75 gift tags and shopped for local low income residents. The photo is courtesy of the Spokane Valley Fire Department. 

Tree of Sharing

I’m told that about 30 firefighters from Spokane Valley Fire will be stopping by the Valley Mall today at noon to purchase gifts for the Tree of Sharing. Every year the trees are put up in local malls decorated with tags listing gifts or needed items for low income families. If you would like to join the firefighters as they give back to the community, head over and get a tag or two for yourself.
