We had technical difficulties over the weekend that stopped our main Saturday Valley Voice stories from posting on the web, but they're up now and ready for your perusal. The Spokane Valley City Council continues to consider purchasing property at Sprague and Herald from the Pring Corporation to be used to expand Balfour Park and partner with the Spokane County Library District on a new library. This particular piece of property has been the topic of discussion before and the city was previously asked to consider buying it in 2007.

Reporter Lisa Leinberger talked to students at Broadway Elementary School who have been collecting used ink cartridges and old cell phones for years, raising $25,000 to buy new technology for the school. Lisa also has a report on a community forum scheduled for tonight to present the finalists for the University High School principal position.

Correspondent Steve Christilaw talked to a former volleyball player turned shot put and discus thrower at East Valley High School. Darbi Dobson is one of the top throwers in the state.
