Man celebrates birthday, pays for everyone's orders at Mike's Old Fashioned Donuts

Man celebrates birthday, pays for everyone's orders at Mike's Old Fashioned Donuts

Customers who visited Mike's Old Fashioned Donuts in Spokane Valley Friday morning may have been treated to a surprise when the man in the blue plaid shirt paid for their orders in celebration of his birthday.

The man, who goes by Marty, covered the cost of everyone's order, whether or not it was for one, or one dozen donuts. He spent about an hour and a half in the shop, and in that time paid for approximately 161 donuts, 24 coffees, and 36 other pastries. His bill came to a total of nearly $225.

According to the shop's owner, Mike Britton, his customers regularly pay for the person behind them. However, this is the first time he has ever seen anyone foot the bill for everyone coming and going.

“We told everyone to be sure to thank the guy in the blue plaid shirt. When they did, he told them to just pay it forward,” Britton said.

Spokane Valley police investigating mobile home explosion

One man was injured when a trailer he was in exploded late Wednesday night.

Spokane Valley firefighters responded to the�trailer�in the 17500 block of�East Sprague�around 11:30 PM.

They had suspicions that explosion was related to drug manufacturing. Spokane Valley police are currently waiting to obtain a search warrant to confirm those suspicions.

The man staying at the trailer was treated for minor injuries and is currently not in custody pending the results of the search warrant.

Deputies suspect the man was extracting the THC from marijuana plants to produce honey oil. That is a controlled substance and manufacturing it is a felony despite the fact that marijuana is now legal.

Spokane Valley crews launch winter operations

Keeping a close eye on the forecast, crews in Spokane Valley expect to launch winter operations at midnight on Wednesday, applying deicer along primary and secondary arterials, on selected hillsides, and at key intersections. 

Although the forecast may change, the city said drivers may still want to be prepared for icy conditions, and allow extra time for a safe commute.

The city also stated it is a good time for community members in Spokane Valley to be sure they have a ready supply of deicer and/or traction sand as well as shovels to keep sidewalks adjacent to their properties cleared of snow and ice as required by the Spokane Valley Municipal Code.

Keeping sidewalks cleared is especially important in areas regularly used by pedestrians, including children going to and from school, and those who use wheelchairs or mobility assistance devices.
