Here were are on another rainy Monday morning with some good Valley Voice stories to catch up on over our morning coffee. Tenants have begun moving back into the Valley Mission Professional Building near the Valley Hospital. The building is being rebuilt after a fire and explosion last fall and the last tenant is expected to be back by July 1.

Reporter Lisa Leinberger talked to Katy Allen, the new Liberty Lake city administrator. She's been a resident of Liberty Lake for years but has commuted as far away as San Jose, Calif., for work. Lisa also has a report on new hires in the Central Valley School District.

The Spokane Valley Fire Department has been analyzing response times on the west end of Spokane Valley after the closure of Station 6 for construction. The times are up, but the department was expecting that even with the assistance of the Spokane Fire Department in some areas.

Two weeks after an explosion and fire heavily damaged the Valley Mission Professional Building, the six medical offices housed in the building are picking themselves up and moving forward. A story in Saturday's Valley Voice outlined what each office is doing and where they are seeing patients.

Reporter Lisa Leinberger checked out new murals on the walls of the common room at Spokane Valley High School. Artist Jena Ponti painted the walls over summer break to give students a surprise when they restarted school. Lisa also had information on the West Valley teachers union's concerns about buget cuts.

With a month to go before the general election, Spokane Valley City Council candidates are busy raising and spending money. Check out the story for more details.

Reporter Mike Prager and I have a story in today's paper on the explosion and fire yesterday morning in the Valley Mission Professional Building across from the Valley Hospital. Someone reported seeing light smoke just before 7 a.m. yesterday and as fire crews were responding a second call came in that there had been an explosion and fire. An oral surgeons office has been completely destroyed and the building is closed as damage is assessed. It was quite a mess. The explosion shattered windows and threw debris into neighboring parking lots.
