From Staff Reports

Spokane police want the public to be aware of a Level 3 sex offender who registered an address in Spokane after being released from prison this week.

Nicholas A. Brown, 28, served six years in prison for first-degree child molestation, police said. His victim was a 5-year-old girl.

Brown lives downtown at 327 1/2 W. Second Ave. He is not wanted by law enforcement but is under state supervision.

Level 3 sex offenders are those considered most likely to reoffend.

Event to address repository growth

An expansion of the Paige Repository will be discussed at a Sept. 9 open house in the Kellogg High School cafeteria, 2 Jacobs Gulch Road.

The 20-year-old repository holds Superfund waste from heavy metals cleanup in Idaho’s Silver Valley. The expansion will add about 1.6 acres to the 20-acre repository. The public can ask questions at the open house, which runs from 3:30 to 8 p.m. It’ll be hosted by the Environmental Protection Agency and the Idaho Department of Environmental Quality.

Because the repository expansion will fill in wetlands, the agencies plan to buy into a wetlands trust outside the Coeur d’Alene River valley as mitigation.

Officials said that while no formal public involvement process is required, they want to provide a chance for input, given recent controversy over repositories. Plans for the East Mission Flats Repository near Cataldo generated a petition drive and calls to public officials.

Movie-themed car show planned

A car show inspired by “American Graffiti” is planned this weekend in Newport, Wash.

Bob’s Car Show, which raises money for cancer patients, will begin with a cruise from 4 to 6 p.m. Sunday, followed by a showing of the George Lucas film at the Roxy Theater at 7 p.m.

The car show will begin at 9 a.m. Monday in Newport City Park and will feature the 1958 Chevy Impala driven by Ron Howard in the film; the car is now owned by a Colville couple. Featured replicas from the movie will include the Pharaoh’s 1951 Mercury Coupe, a 1932 Ford Coupe and a 1958 Edsel Corsair. Registration costs $15. Information:
