Donations help bring graduation to INB

WEST VALLEY – The West Valley School District announced earlier this year that it would not hold the West Valley High School graduation ceremony in the INB Performing Arts Center in order to save money.

Now, however, it looks like the ceremony will be held in the downtown venue as it has been for years. The school will save $3,000 by not having a rehearsal at the center, and several community members have made donations to help make up the difference, it was announced at this week’s board meeting.

The school is also discussing allowing each family five free tickets and charging for each additional ticket.

Election Day council meeting canceled

SPOKANE VALLEY – The Spokane Valley City Council has canceled its regular meeting Tuesday night because it would coincide with the release of election results.

As Mayor Rich Munson puts it, council members up for re-election want to “breathe into a paper bag” without an audience.
