Spokane Valley Fire Department hosts their next station open house this weekend

During the Spokane Valley Fire Department's open house at Station #4 last weekend on August 13th, about 75 community members stopped by during the three hour span.

Movie In The Park

Movie In The Park

I love summer nights. I love that the sun stays out so long. I love the warmth even after it goes down. And I love that there's so much to do once it does, including movies in the park.

Today, the City of Spokane Valley Park and Recreation Department invited families to Mirabeau Park for the showing of Sorcerer's Apprentice. 800 people showed up for the July movie and the City expects just as many this month.

Why wouldn't you show up?

Help Rename Your Local Fire Department's Stations

Help Rename Your Local Fire Department's Stations

The Spokane Valley Fire Department is taking a stab at crowd sourcing to rename their fire stations. Simply numbering their stations isn't enough. They want to connect with the neighboring communities that the fire station resides in, to rename them to reflect that connection. You can provide your input to this project through an upcoming open house on August 13th. They'll start by renaming Fire Station #4 in Otis Orchards.

There is no room for negativity in Jessica Sharpe's life. The 20-year-old Liberty Lake woman survived a head-on crash that shattered her bones from the pelvis down and seared her left arm with chemical burns, but six weeks and 13 surgeries later she's all smiles.

Jessica is the type of person who humbles you with her positivity. You'll be hard pressed to find anything to complain about after meeting her and learning about what she's been through.
