Liberty Lake resident Cheri Scandalis is in familiar territory with her animals and on her hobby farm in Green Bluff. Scandalis plans to use the farm for future animal advocacy fundraisers.

When "Girl" mysteriously vanished from her backyard seven years ago, Liberty Lake resident Cheri Scandalis went on an intensive search to find the Rottweiler. After visiting area shelters, speaking to rescue groups and placing ads in newspapers all over the region, Scandalis never found Girl. But during her search, Scandalis discovered something she didn’t scandalis anticipate. “I saw so many areas of need,” said Scandalis of her observation of overloaded area animal shelters. “There were so many animals and not enough help.” As a result, she felt led to focus on helping animals, a drive that recently earned her national recognition. She began her work with animals by volunteering at the SCRAPS (Spokane County Regional Animal Protection Service) shelter. “I didn’t enjoy working in the shelter,” Scandalis said. “I would just cry when I was there.”

After a short time working with the impounded animals, she decided to find another avenue to help. Volunteering for Washington Animal Rescue, she began transporting animals once a month from Spokane shelters to "no kill" shelters on the west side of the state. “That was a happy thing,” Scandalis said. Scandalis’ husband bought her a truck with a canopy just to accommodate her trips. “I would load my truck with as

October is Breast Cancer Awareness Month, and we’ve got you covered.

Valley Hospital Center for Women’s Imaging One out of every eight women will develop breast cancer. But statistics show more women survive this diagnosis when it is detected and treated early. According to the American Cancer Society, mammograms remain one of the most effective methods for early detection. If you are 40 or older, or are considered to be at risk, Valley Hospital encourages you to have a mammogram once a year – starting now.

To schedule your mammogram, call 509-473-5483. For more information, visit

Appointments are on a first-come, first-serve basis. A physician order is not required but the patient must provide a physician’s name when an appointment is made. If the patient does not have a physician, a list will be provided for the patient’s selection. All mammogram reports will be sent to the physician and follow-ups are the responsibility of the patient.

LLSWD looks to honor, replace commissioner By Josh Johnson Splash Staff Writer

Liberty Lake Sewer and Water District leaders looked at how to replace — and how to remember — the organization’s longest-tenured commissioner at a regular meeting Oct. 17. It was the first time the board of commissioners met following the late September passing of Frank L. Boyle. Commissioners Tom Agnew and Steve Skipworth directed LLSWD General Manager Lee Mellish to advertise for the vacancy. Interested applicants must be a resident within district boundaries and apply with background information and qualifications by 4 p.m. Nov. 9. Agnew and Skipworth called a special meeting at 4 p.m. Nov. 9 to go through the applications. They will then invite finalists to be interviewed during the board’s regular November meeting, which was moved to 4 p.m. Nov. 14. The selected appointee will serve until November 2013, when he or she must run in a general election that will be held to fill the rest of Boyle’s term. The six-year term goes through 2015. Agnew said he has already received some phone calls of interested parties, and he recalled that four or five strong candidates applied when Skipworth was appointed to fill the remainder of former Commissioner Harley Halverson’s term in 2007. The board also began consideration for how to honor Boyle, who with 20-plus years service was the longest-tenured commissioner in the history of the LLSWD. During that time, he developed a knowledge of district history he became

FRANK L. BOYLE MEMORIAL SERVICE A memorial service for longtime Liberty Lake resident and Liberty Lake Sewer and Water District Commissioner Frank L. Boyle boyle will be held at 2 p.m. Saturday at Valley Real Life church, 1831 S. Barker Road in Spokane Valley. known for. Agnew said he believed a memorial of some kind was in order to honor Boyle’s years of service. Mellish said staff members had begun discussing just such a possibility, and naming the pump station on Inlet Drive in Boyle’s honor was one of the ideas discussed. Mellish said that particular station, which was close to Boyle’s longtime residence, stood out in part because of a memorable incident when Boyle worked overnight with LLSWD crews on a pump replacement project gone awry, then bought everyone breakfast from McDonald’s in the morning. Commissioners asked Mellish to bring a formal resolution to formalize how to honor Boyle to a future meeting. For more information about the vacancy, contact Mellish at 922-9016.

CVSD to hold hearing on lot Former LL middle school site may be sold to city until needed By Josh Johnson Splash Staff Writer

A public hearing has been called Nov. 13 to receive citizen input on a proposal that would develop youth playing fields and spruce up a vacant lot just east of Liberty Lake Elementary School. The hearing will be held at 7 p.m. that Tuesday at the Central Valley School District administration building, 19307 E. Cataldo Ave. in Spokane Valley. Leaders for the Central Valley School District and city of Liberty Lake are finalizing details on a purchase agreement and development agreement that would turn control of the lot over to the city until the

district was ready to use the land. At a past City Council meeting, Liberty Lake Mayor Steve Peterson described a draft of the agreement as a $10 transaction in which the city would take control of the site and develop youth recreational fields on it. CVSD could then purchase it back for the purpose of building a school on it at any time in the next 99 years — for $10. “(This would) allow a piece of property that we do not need at this point in time in our capital facilities plan to be used for the betterment of a community until at such time we need to use it again,” CVSD Superintendent Ben Small told the school board Monday that the 23.85-acre site. After taking public input, both the school board and Liberty Lake City Council would need to approve the agreement.

The faint of heart should beware of yards like this one on North Malvern Road, where Kip and Cindy Krogh have transformed a normally welcoming front yard into a spooky cemetery. As an aside, props to Mr. Barry D. Lyve, who is looking pretty good for having spent the past couple centuries in the dirt.

By Josh Johnson Splash Staff Writer

Ah, Halloween. (Or is it, “Ahhhhhhhh!” Halloween?)


For those who meander off the beaten sidewalk:

It’s hard to tell when you mix a holiday celebrating disguises into the already layered reality of modern society. Most folks’ daily lives include multiple “costumes”: mom, pet owner, student, employee, fitness aficionado.

Don’t miss Kip and Cindy Krogh’s yard-turned-cemetery on North Malvern Road (pictured above) — or the many like it found along Liberty Lake streets. Rumor has it, the Krogh family waits on the front steps to comfort frightened children who may otherwise be too intimidated to approach the door.

In honor of Halloween this year, The Splash offers the following 31 steps to help make the holiday saner (for the control freak in you) or less sane (for that thrillseeking alter ego), safer (for those parental instincts) or more dangerous (for the rebellious child battling to come out).


For the well-costumed:

Win $500 in cash at a costume contest as part of the fifth annual Mira-BOO Rockin’ Halloween Party Saturday at the Mirabeau Park Hotel and its MAX restaurant, 1100 N. Sullivan Road in Spokane Valley. Tickets are $5 and include band; check out

It’s unlikely all of what follows applies to you, but then again, perhaps it all depends on the “costume” you currently happen to be wearing.


The Inland Northwest Blood Center is holding “Stave a Vampire, Give Blood” Monday through Wednesday of next week in an event they’re marketing as a real “vein drain.” Locations abound, so call 232-4441 for more information.


For the business networker: You, too, can

celebrate Halloween and still tell people about your business at a business after-hours networking party Tuesday at Spokane Valley’s Holiday Inn Express, 9220 E. Mission Ave. The event has been advertised simply with: “Think Zombies.” Perhaps an especially smart move if your business has recently performed like a dead man walking.


For the “dark (k)night”:

Trick-or-treating in well-lit areas is a must. If you happen to live in an area not as well lit, it’s wise to provide lots of your own lighting.


For the anxious child:

For the vampire-hater:

Splash file photo

Have you ever roamed the aisles of a library thinking, “What would really make this place complete is a ring toss using 2-liter bottles?” Neither have we. Credit the folks who transform the Liberty Lake Municipal Library for its annual Halloween Party, always a blast.


For those who have always wanted to let loose and party in a library: The Liberty Lake Municipal

Library, 23123 E. Mission Ave., will host a Halloween Party from 5:30 to 7:30 p.m. Monday featuring crafts, games, prizes and photos of you in costume for $2 (includes decorative frame).


For the masked superhero: If what

you’re wearing restricts your vision, perhaps a temporary costume modification is in order if your trick-ortreating route has you crossing a street or, you know, generally walking around outside.

Always follow the classic Halloween rules, including don’t eat candy before an adult checks it and don’t go into the houses or vehicles of anyone you don’t know.


For the folks on four wheels: AAA reports that

Oct. 31 continues to be the deadliest night of the year for pedestrians thanks to vehicle-pedestrian collisions. No matter how many tips you give a heavily costumed, heavily sugared 5-yearold, unexpected darts into traffic sadly happen year after year. This is one of those occasions where “goes without saying” still “bears repeating”: Slow down and use above-and-beyond caution behind the wheel Wednesday night.


For the grateful: Head

to KiDDS Dental, 1327 N. Stanford Lane, Suite 5, between 4 to 7 p.m. the “day after” (Nov. 1) and turn in some of that leftover candy. Not only will Dr. Evans pay you $1 per pound, but he’s sending it to troops overseas through Operation Gratitude.


For the pet dresser:

Check out the Howl-o-ween Pet Costume Party Saturday from 1 to 3 p.m. at Simply Northwest, 11806 E. Sprague Ave. in Spokane Valley. Bring your pet in their best costume, have their photo taken and register to win raffle prizes all while SCRAPS receives 10 percent of daily sales.


For the pet dresser, part 2: SCRAPS advises

that pets come in all temperaments, including those that like to dress up fancy for special occasions and revel in the attention, and those that don’t. (Hey, sounds like humans.) If you own the latter, don’t expect them to look like a pirate and still behave like a princess.


For the pet dresser, part 3: SCRAPS advises

that pet costumes to be avoided include those that restrict movement, hearing, ability to breathe, etc. Also a no-no: costumes with small, dangling or easily chewed-off pieces that could cause the pet to choke.


For the pet owner, period: SCRAPS, which

has seen its share of whatnot-to-dos, come to find out, finally advises that some Halloween treats can be like poison to pets, particularly chocolate and candies containing the artificial sweetener xylitol. This is to say nothing for the troubles of digesting wrappers or candlelit pumpkins knocked into the curtains, lighting your house on fire. In summary, The Splash joins SCRAPS in reminding you to use your head, even and especially if the costume you are wearing doesn’t come with one.

Scarywood is not for the faint of heart, and this year’s Trail of Terror half marathon on Saturday is not for the weak of heart, at least cardiovascularly speaking.

Continued from page 10


For the person who needs something to run from: Scarywood (aka

Silverwood) is holding a “Trail of Terror” half marathon and 5K run on Saturday. Register for and finish the longer run, and you can celebrate with free tickets to Scarywood that day.


For the commonly costumed: The Central

Valley High School band dons a uniform multiple times each autumn, and a great way to support the band lands Tuesday on Halloween eve. The CVHS drama department is presenting “Nicholas Nickleby” a little early (the run of shows formally starts Nov. 1). The $11 tickets (seating at 7 p.m., show at 7:30 p.m.) support traveling costs for the band.


For the “Monster Mashers”: Those too

young to understand a Beach Boys reference (teens and tweens) are invited to a Halloween Dance put on by the Theater Arts for Children. The event for ages 10-18 is 8 p.m. Friday at the theater, 2114 N. Pines Road, Suite 35. Cost is $10.


Does your diet require more than candy, candy, candy? The Veradale United Church of Christ, 611 N. Progress Road, is holding its 72nd annual Harvest Dinner featuring turkey, ham, Swedish meatballs and vegetables grown in the church garden. The meal-by-donation benefits church programs.


For those who have grown out of their water wings: The Valley

Mission Pool, 11123 E. Mission Ave. in Spokane Valley, will be transformed from 7:30 to 10 p.m. Friday and Saturday. For $3 ($2 with a can of food to donate), brave souls can traverse the Tarp Tunnel of Terror, the Zombie Graveyard and the creepy Clown Chaos. Kids under 12 require a parent or guardian. For more: 720-5408


For those who want to stay indoors: How

about heading inside the house — a haunted house. The region is full of them. One worth supporting is “Outbreak: Rise of the Zombie Hunters,” a special house and fundraiser operated by West Valley City School, 8920 E. Valleyway Ave. in Spokane Valley. For more: 921-2836


For the more substantive stomach:

Whether you’re a teen or an adult, remember that trick-ortreating is about the kids — cute kids, scary kids, freezing-and-want-to-gohome kids. The point is, most people generously distributing pounds of candy stock up on behalf of neighborhood children. If your Halloween mustache is no longer fake, consider stepping aside this year — or better yet, accompanying those who must paint on their facial hair as a capably experienced guide.

For the festival-goer:

Just after Halloween on Nov. 2, Valley Christian School, 10212 E. 9th Ave. in Spokane Valley, is hosting a HarVEST Festival of Fun. All-inclusive tickets of $30 each or $100 per family include kids’ activities, food, music by local performers, bull riding and a silent auction to support the school. For more: 924-9131


For the adults: If the

grown-up in you loves a party with a cause, RYPtoberfest from 4 p.m. to midnight this Saturday may be just the ticket. Programming note: citing a new sponsor, the event changed venues to Sullivan Scoreboard, 205 N. Sullivan Road in Spokane Valley. (Until recently the event was going to be held at another venue). The Mark Rypien Foundation is one of the charities that benefit, and the former NFL quarterback will be in attendance and throwing footballs. For more: www.


For the Peter, Peter Pumpkin Eaters:

This is the time of year to indulge the pumpkin-tooth. Pumpkin pie, pumpkin lattes, pumpkin egg nog — Papa Murphy’s even sells pizzas shaped like pumpkins. Some of us can’t get enough.

For some of us, the only thing better than carving one is eating one in some form or fashion.


For the Peter, Peter Pumpkin Carvers:

What’s Halloween without sticking your hand inside a pumpkin and cleaning it? Yeah, we try to forget that part too in favor of focusing on the carving. This weekend is prime time to carve that pumpkin. Carve it too early, and it will rot before Halloween.


For the Peter, Peter Apple Eaters: The

annual Apple Festival up at Green Bluff is a regional tradition. Cider, music, crafts, games, mazes and a variety of cooking apples. The event ends Sunday. For more:


For the sweet corn lover: And we’re not

talking about the kind that’s good for you. Have you ever had a hankering for candy corn in June? We have, and it turns out it’s awfully hard to find. For the small percentage of the population who can’t get enough of this treat, act now or you’ll be waiting another year.


For the Hallo-weenie:

Scared out of your mind and ready for it all to end? It will. With our ever-extending holiday season, it will begin to feel a lot like Christmas (with a hint of Thanksgiving) about the time the last trick-or-treater deserts your front porch. Whether it’s your favorite holiday or you feel like the poodle stuffed into a ballerina costume it doesn’t want to wear, enjoy the moment. With family. With friends. With a fire in the fireplace. Whatever the case, have a happy, safe and memorable Halloween — whatever the costume you happen to be wearing.

Athletic Rehkow family enjoying magical year GSL race three weeks earlier. The Bears, ranked seventh in state, beat Lewis and Clark for the GSL title and this weekend are in Richland for state qualifying. CV boys are also chasing a return state trip after tying for second in league. They are ranked second in state. “We finished 4-5 in the GSL last year, and we went 8-1 this year,” coach Kieran Mahoney said. “I always tell the guys you earn every victory, you just don’t go through the drive-through and order one up. (It has been) an awesome season.”

By Mike Vlahovich Splash Contributor

Just when you thought things could get no better in the Rehkow household, they did with one mighty swing of a foot. Last March in Tacoma, Central Valley’s girls and boys basketball teams reached the State 4A finals. Freddie Rehkow coached the girls; his son, Austin, was a standout for the boys. It’s an experience that seldom happens to one family. Last Thursday, however, Austin Rehkow’s 67-yard field goal with time running out and the Bears trailing Shadle Park not only forced overtime and an eventual CV overtime win, but also made him a national sensation. Place kicking can be fickle, as a Sports Illustrated article about last year’s bowl games pointed out. You are only as good as your last success. Normally reliable kickers miss what for them are chip shots in a loss and are vilified. Kick one for a win and you are lionized. That’s how it is living in a fishbowl. Austin Rehkow’s 67-yard shot heard round the country was a doozey. Whatever happens from here, it’s a moment the family will always cherish. And basketball is right around the corner.

Central Valley High School kicker Austin Rehkow follows the line of a 67-yard-field goal he drilled Oct. 18 as time expired to send a game against Shadle Park into overtime. The Bears eventually won, and the state-record kick gained Rehkow national attention. Dennis McGuire wasn’t sure if she’d be able to return. “Getting Skye back seven months after ACL surgery, I didn’t expect it at all,” McGuire said. Although staying relatively fit during rehabilitation, Sanders hadn’t been able to fully run with the team until mid-September.

“She was doing the bikes and physical training, but getting the lungs into running shape is tough,” McGuire said. Sanders ran 11th in a late-September Greater Spokane League race at CV, but placed 12th in the Richland Invitational. In last Wednesday’s final league meet, Sanders finished fourth for the Bears and eighth overall, two minutes faster than the

Central Valley volleyball and soccer teams began postseason play this week, both with an eye toward state. Both teams played Mead, the Bears seeded No.1 in 4A soccer and with a victory in either of two matches heads to regionals beginning Tuesday. CV failed in its attempt to win the league, dropping a 2-0 decision to unbeaten Mt. Spokane. Volleyball is seeded second behind the state’s top-ranked team, but likewise has two chances at winning a regional berth. The Bears finished tied for fourth at 6-3 with Shadle Park, one of three 3A schools with equal or better records.

Reciprocal borrowing agreement between libraries formalizes CIN cardholders who don’t live in the city to revert to old cards By Josh Johnson Splash Staff Writer

The first three Spokane County Library District cards have already been issued to city of Liberty Lake residents following the approval Oct. 16 of a new reciprocal borrowing agreement between SCLD and the Liberty Lake Municipal Library, SCLD Communications Manager Jane Baker said Tuesday. As the agreement opens up reciprocal borrowing between the two groups of li-

brary patrons, Liberty Lake Municipal Library Director Pamela Mogen said it also comes with increased clarification about the borrowing rights for patrons. Perhaps most impacted are county residents who have held Liberty Lake Municipal Library cards as it transitioned into the CIN system in August. These patrons will no longer have access to the CIN system at large but will retain access to the Liberty Lake Muncipal Library-owned collection. “In the interest of equity, and as a result of the agreement, all non-resident cardholders of Liberty Lake's CIN cards will have those cards replaced with an orange Liberty Lake Municipal Library card (our old card)

which will be good for the same services at LLML as our city resident patrons will receive at SCLD,” Mogen wrote in an email to The Splash. This means non-resident LLML cardholders will have similar access in Liberty Lake that city residents will have in the Spokane County Library District. “No items belonging to other libraries in the CIN system to which we belong may be borrowed or requested by non-residents, just as no items from other libraries such as the Spokane Public Library that SCLD may have a reciprocal agreement with will be available to Liberty Lake city residents,” Mogen wrote.

Subscription and e-book services are examples of those which will be available through the “home” library only — SCLD for county residents and LLML for city residents. Additionally, items borrowed from a SCLD library must be returned to a SCLD library, while items borrowed from the Liberty Lake Municipal Library must be returned to a library affiliated with its CIN network. Items returned to the wrong system will not be sent to the correct place but will instead accrue fines, Mogen said. She added the library has information available through its website and in brochures on site to further explain the changes.

Editorial Cartoon

Support BUTB By Jessica Kovac splash guest column

Oct. 7 was a special day for us as it marked the five-year anniversary for founding Blessings Under the Bridge right here in Liberty Lake. I wanted to give our Liberty Lake community an update as well as take the time to extend many thank yous. As Blessings Under the Bridge gears up for its sixth annual winter event on Dec. 15, I am in awe of the amount of support we have received from Liberty Lake, its businesses, people and nearby churches. We have received so much support in the past few months following our summer event we held in July. I don’t even know where to start to explain how much has happened, but here are a few that come to mind: • Papa Murphy’s allowed us to earn 15 percent of the total sales that came in July 9. • Just Chillin’ promoted Blessings Under the Bridge through its “Change for Charity” months and raised the highest amount of change at $1,027. • We received monetary donations and gift cards from Home Depot and McDonalds. • Continued support still streams in from Albertsons, Rhonda with Hay J’s and Vance with Otis Grill.

Letter to the Editor Support all committed relationships with Ref. 74 Our culture continues to struggle to maintain committed relationships. For example, about 47 percent of first marriages end in divorce. A February 2012 New York Times article reported that 50 percent of all births are born to single mothers under the age of 30. Adults need more support services to maintain healthy, committed relationships.

One care group of 27 found out we needed shelving and donated a large portion to cover the costs for 40 feet of much-needed shelving! • We recently received blessing and support from Spokane Mayor David Condon with a plan to work together. For starters, he and the city approved a central location we can feed from every week. BUTB has many ideas for this location. • I received a call from Phoenix, Ariz., as officials there want a BUTB in their city, so I will keep you all informed as to how that goes. • We have been fortunate enough to receive support from places outside of Liberty Lake, such as Inland Northwest Bank and Paul Mitchell.

As we continue to grow and refine our mission and vision, we are reminded that the search for hope is within all of us. No matter who or where you are. That’s our heart, that’s our mission to try and instill a little in everyone, including ourselves. Five years later, we are still blown away by what God is doing. We are abundantly grateful to our amazing Liberty Lake residents, churches, businesses and surrounding areas. From all of us here at BUTB, thank you! We encourage and invite the rest of Liberty Lake to become involved with us. If you have a heart to give, serve or help someone in need, get into contact with us.

Instead, the pair ended up keeping the Shepherd puppy — “And we bring home another dog," Scandalis recalled. "That’s the story of my life.” As a wedding gift, her husband, John, who was at the time allergic to dogs, gave her two yellow Labradors. “He puts up with a lot,” Scandalis said. “I couldn’t do what I do without the support of my family.” Next spring, Scandalis hopes to open up a hobby farm as a sanctuary for any animal in need on property she owns in the Green Bluff area. At the hobby farm, she plans on holding fundraising events and having a petting zoo. “It’s another area of need,” Scandalis said. “You can’t believe the livestock that are starving and not receiving medical attention they need because of our economy. Last winter, there were many times where the shelter looked like Noah’s ark because they had sheep, goats, chickens and bunnies.” After opening the hobby farm, she plans to continue her work with SCRAPS. “I can’t imagine SCRAPS without Cheri,” Hill said. “I have come to rely on Cheri over the years. I trust her instincts and her judgment as we move forward with our programs — helping to save the lives of the homeless animals in our community.”

YES on 1240 Will Give More Washington Students A Chance To Succeed Initiative 1240 will allow up to 40 public charter schools in Washington state over the next five years. Charter schools are public schools that are free and open to all students, with the same teacher certification requirements and academic standards as traditional public schools, and funded based on

student enrollment just like other public schools. However, charter schools allow teachers and principals more flexibility to meet the needs of students, which is especially important for students who are not succeeding in traditional schools. Please join us in voting YES on 1240.

Parents, Teachers & Education Leaders Urge YES on 1240 “Public charter schools across the country have a proven track record of helping students succeed, especially those at risk of falling through the cracks. Initiative 1240 brings the best of what works in other states to Washington.“ Dr. Sam Smith Former President Washington State University

“Public charter schools allow teachers and principals more flexibility to meet the needs of students, especially students who aren’t succeeding in traditional public school settings. That’s why I support a YES vote on 1240.” Joan Ferrigno Public High School Principal

“As a parent, I understand every child learns differently. Initiative 1240 provides parents an important public school option to help find the best learning environment for our children.” Dee Dee Loberg Public School Parent and PTA Member Spokane Valley

“I’ve studied public charter schools across the country, and I support a YES vote on 1240. Initiative 1240 is a well-written law that requires strict accountability and annual performance reviews. And 1240 ensures that public funding stays with public schools– following students just as it does now.” Professor Paul T. Hill, Ph.D. University of Washington Founder, Center on Reinventing Public Education (Titles and affiliations are for identification purposes only) Paid for by YES on 1240: Washington Coalition for Public Charter Schools, PO Box 6552, Olympia, WA 98507, (877) 704-5577 Top five contributors: Bill Gates, Alice Walton, Nick Hanauer, Mike Bezos, Jackie Bezos
