A historic vision

Spokane Valley Heritage Museum celebrating its 100-year-old building today By Valerie Putnam Splash Contributor

“We’re a small museum, but have a big vision.” This is the mantra of Spokane Valley Heritage Museum Director Jayne Singleton, who understands the potential of the museum exceeds its limitations. “There is nothing we don’t undertake,” Singleton said. “Size doesn’t limit us.” Officially opening its doors in August 2005, Singleton got the idea to start a museum while planning the Valley Chamber of Commerce 80th anniversary in 1999. “I thought showcasing the Valley’s history would be a good focus for the event,” said Singleton, who worked for the Chamber at the time. She soon discovered, though, there wasn’t any repository or much history available. “I just couldn’t believe there wasn’t a museum here in the Valley,” said Singleton, who was raised with a strong sense of her family’s history. “There wasn’t one place to go. I thought that wasn’t right.” In 2000, she took a leap of faith. Sin-

Before you blow out your sprinkler system this fall, remember that we are all relying on you to help keep our drinking water clean. Once water enters your irrigation system it can become contaminated with lawn chemicals and bacteria. If your sprinkler system doesn’t have adequate backflow protection, blowing out the system may push this contaminated water back into your home’s water supply.

HUB turns 5, turning the corner Sports facility in position to now focus on outreach By Josh Johnson Splash Staff Writer

When Phil Champlin took the reins of the HUB Sports Center early in 2010, the building the nonprofit leased was about to go back up for sale, and the cities of Liberty Lake and Spokane Valley were being courted as potential owners. Built as Sports USA in 2004, the facility never was able to find its footing and eventually closed down. In 2007, a group of community leaders led by a local pastor, Ian Robertson, came in to give it another shot, but efforts to cover operating expenses, let alone a rent and eventual purchase of the building, were a constant struggle. Enter Champlin. “When I came in, the charge was, ‘We want this to be a fulltime facility. You’ve got six months to a year to let us know, ‘Can it work? Is it viable?’” Champlin said. He immediately set out to fill the facility with events, working with the board to obtain its commitment to remain open until summer 2011 to see what he could book. With that guarantee the doors would be open came growth, Champlin said. “Because the sales pitch of, ‘Hey bring your event here and we may or may not be here in three or four months when you want to have you event,’ only gets me so far,” he said, adding lining up sponsors was difficult for the same reason. “October of 2010 was the last time we got a capital infusion from our board,” Champlin said. “Since October 2010, we’ve been self sustaining. I’m very proud of that, and very appreciative to the board. There again, that’s another piece of the puzzle that enabled us to get here today. We had some really core people who believed in what we do and what the potential of this place is.” Operating in the black has

caused Champlin’s relatively brief time with the HUB to rapidly shift through different mindsets. “My tenure (starting out), it was survival,” he recalled. “How do we keep the lights on and the doors open? OK, now we have that dialed in, so what else can we do? So we started to run some of our own programs where we can do a tournament or a clinic or a league and try to fill in some of the gaps. Now, we are getting to do some outreach and have some kids on scholarship to spring break camp or summer camp. ... To be on solid footing that we can reach out, that’s my heart and the board’s heart of what their overall vision is for this place.” Champlin said these types of events help attract more sponsors and partners to feed a growing economic engine. “We’re not making money hand over fist, but we’re operating in the black, starting to be able to do outreach, and we want to do more,” he said.


HUB 360 launching One of those outreach pieces launching next month is called HUB 360, an after-school program aimed initially at Greenacres Middle School students. The program provides a snack, mentoring, teaching and a physical activity from 3 to 6 p.m. on Tuesdays and Thursdays. HUB 360 is being coordinated with the Central Valley School District, and Superintendent Ben Small said the district’s location of its bus garage next door makes it easy to transport eligible students directly to the HUB after school. “The one thing that we’re seeing is that kids who are actively involved in their community, whether through after-school programs or youth sports, tend to do better,” said Small, who recently joined the HUB’s board of directors. “I think the HUB is a facility that, when utilized to tis fullest, can really give back to this community, and HUB 360 is another one of those opportunities we believe aligns with our mission and vision of providing services to children and building community.” Champlin said interested

HUB Sports Center Executive Director Phil Champlin stands outside the 66,670-square-foot facility. The HUB is holding an open house to celebrate its fifth anniversary at noon on Sept. 29.

youth should speak to their school counselor, and volunteers who want to share a skill or mentor students are encouraged to contact him at 927-0602.

The future

Liberty Lake Mayor Steve Peterson remembers the original vision of the facility, and while he has seen it struggle, he credits Champlin with bringing the HUB to a place where its future is better secure as an asset to Liberty Lake

and surrounding communities. “Phil Champlin, I think, has really, really brought that place to almost a full boil,” Peterson said. “They are getting their issues solved and have solid footing underneath them.” He said the events the HUB attracts support hotels and help drive the local economy. Champlin said the HUB is now secure in its lease, but a future capital campaign to purchase

What: The HUB Sports Center’s Five-Year Anniversary and Open House When: Noon to 4 p.m. Sept. 29 Cost: The event is free and is intended to promote healthy lifestyles while providing a variety of activities, including: • Exercise and fitness: Beginning Zumba Open Basketball Intro to Kung Fu Open Volleyball Badminton Pickleball Futsal • Classes/certifications (please call to pre-register): First-Aid/CPR* Coaching 101* Concussion Awareness* Babysitting 101* • Other attractions: Jump House Free Activities for Kids Car seat check Bicycle Tune-ups Sports Mascots Healthy Food and Drink • After party: Greenstone will be sponsoring a free showing of “The Lorax” at 4:30 p.m. For specific event and activity times or more details, call 927-0602 the facility is likely. And he still dreams of the day when surrounding lots could be turned to ballfields, giving the facility even more year-round activity. “We want the HUB to be a permanent resource for this community, not something that people are worried about or wondering, ‘Well, how long are they going to be here?’” he said. “You all are invited to our 10-year anniversary.

and consented to a search. The money was not located. • Welfare check — At 7:50 p.m. Sept. 13, LLPD was dispatched to the area of Mission and Harvard to check the welfare of a man that was reportedly bleeding on the side of the road and holding something to his head. It was determined the subject had crashed his bicycle, causing injury to his head. The subject was treated on scene by medics and later transported to the hospital by a family member. • Malicious mischief — At 12:50 p.m. Sept. 16, LLPD was dispatched to a malicious mischief incident at the 700 block of North Holiday Hills Drive. The complainant reported that an unknown suspect caused damage to a window at a house under construction sometime during the previous 18 hours. The damage appeared to be made by a pellet or BB gun. • Abandoned vehicle — At 10 a.m. Sept. 13, an LLPD officer located a vehicle that appeared to be involved in a collision high centered on rock in the area of Country Vista and Appleway. The vehicle appeared abandoned in a field with the door open. The officer attempted to contact the registered owner of the vehicle by phone and in person but did

not get a response. The vehicle was towed from the scene. At approximately 4:30 p.m., the officer contacted the registered owner, who was made aware that a family member had gotten the vehicle “stuck.” The officer was able to contact the driver by phone, and the driver told the officer he liked to drive through the gravel roads. He told the officer that he was driving fast but didn’t know how fast he was going. The driver stated he lost control of the vehicle, and it got stuck on a pile of rocks. The officer contacted the driver’s mother and advised her of what happened. • Vending machine theft — At 7 a.m. Sept. 13, LLPD was dispatched to a theft/property damage incident at the 1300 block of North Liberty Lake Road. Seven-Up Bottling Co. reported that between Sept. 10-11, an unknown suspect broke into the beverage vending machine at the front of the business by using a drill, removing an unknown amount of money. • Check fraud — At 11:35 a.m. Sept. 13, LLPD was dispatched to a check fraud incident at the 1400 block of North Liberty Lake Road. Four computer-generated checks with the victim’s information and account number dated between

Aug. 20 and Aug. 28 were cashed for various amounts and made out to different people. The officer located contact information for one of the subjects listed on one of the checks, who said he had received the check from a subject who claimed to be a doctor in Honduras that wanted to come to America. The doctor forwarded the check to the subject with instructions to keep some cash for himself and send the rest to Honduras. The subject did so and later learned it was a fraud. The case has been assigned to Detective Bourgeois for followup investigation. • Similar vehicle prowls — At 12:55 and 3:25 p.m. Sept. 14, LLPD was dispatched to the 1700 block of North Madson Road for vehicle prowl reports. One complainant reported she arrived to work at 2:45 p.m. and locked her vehicle. When she returned to her vehicle at 6:30 p.m., she noticed her wallet was missing out of the glove box.

Budget discussion begins By Josh Johnson Splash Staff Writer

With initial forecasts showing Liberty Lake in a “pretty good place” financially as the city gears up for its 2013 budget season, city leaders offered initial glimpses of the discussions to come at Tuesday’s City Council meeting. Finance Director RJ Stevenson presented a preliminary budget for 2013 based on staff projections of expenditures and revenue. The draft shows general fund revenue — essentially the city’s operating budget — of $5.43 million against $5.14 million in expenses. Anticipating some upcoming capital projects in 2013, including emptying out the $608,100 from the long-dormant Harvard Road Mitigation Fund to spend on a proposed roundabout at Harvard Road and Mission Avenue, the city is looking at spending roughly $7.47 million against $6.96 million in revenue. Budget discussions will more formally launch when Mayor Steve Peterson presents his proposed budget on Oct. 16, but Council members shared some initial feedback that may shed light on future discussion, including topics such as the utility tax and spending philosophies. “It appears that next year is when we start spending more than what we collect,” Council Member Josh Beckett said of the declining overall ending fund balance. City Administrator Katy Allen pointed to the city’s relative financial health as compared to many other municipalities in the state as one reason the city may be in a position to spend down some accrued capital fund balances on upcoming projects.

“We still want to be very conservative in our revenue projections, we still want to be very disciplined in our expenditures, but this is a pretty good budget, and I think we should all just acknowledge that we’re in a pretty good place here in Liberty Lake,” Allen said. Council Member Cris Kaminskas responded by reminding the city about the utility tax implemented during a budget crunch in 2011 at a full 6 percent rate, then reduced to 3 percent for 2012. “If we are in a ‘pretty good place,’ have we looked at taking away the utility tax to keep spending down?” she said. “... Instead of increasing our spending, shouldn’t we be looking at keeping our spending even and maybe possibly giving some of that back to our citizens?” Stevenson called it “a great discussion we’re going to have in this budget process.” He said the utility tax was passed with a dual purpose, both getting through tough times and responding to infrastructure needs.

Library, speed measures pass The City Council unanimously passed Ordinance No. 202, which increases the speed limit to 45 mph on Country Vista Drive from Henry Road west to the city limits of Spokane Valley. Included in the city’s consent agenda, also passed unanimously, was a reciprocal agreement to allow city residents to get library cards from the Spokane County Library District. The SCLD board was also expected to pass the agreement Tuesday. An appointment of Ashley Salzwedel to the Planning Commission was also approved.

News Brief Grant applications available for tourism The city of Liberty Lake Lodging Tax Advisory Board is accepting applications for the Hotel/Motel Tourism Promotion Fund Grant for 2013.

Buick club drops in on LL Timing of event lands 80 years after visit from ‘Rubber Royalty’ From Staff Reports

An automobile event held Friday near the shores of Liberty Lake recalled one held on the same spot 80 years prior. Members of the North Cascades Chapter of the Buick Club of America gathered at the Wicomico Beach-area home of Jamie and Jackie Wolff to enjoy Veraci Pizza, old music and even older cars. About 100 club members and friends filled the Wolff ’s backyard to enjoy the stop before overnighting at Templin’s in Post Falls and continuing their tour with stops in North Idaho on Saturday. Eighty years ago, the Wolff ’s property was owned by Mr. and Mrs. Milton T. McGold-

rick, who hosted an event called “Rubber Royalty.” McGoldrick was the controlling owner of McGoldrick-Sanderson Co. in Spokane, a Firestone Tire dealership, at the time, and the event was held to host two sons of Harvey Firestone, the founder of Firestone Tire Co., Liberty Lake Historical Society President Ross Schneidmiller said. Leonard Firestone was on an inspection tour of the company’s stores in the Pacific Coast states. Having finished his junior year at Princeton, Raymond Firestone had just flown in to join his older brother for the trip home when they received the invitation to the lake — which, most likely would have included a ride in one of the beautiful mahogany boats the McGoldricks were well known for, Schneidmiller said. “This historical tie-in is most appropriate for this event, as a number of the automobiles present would have originally come standard with Firestone Gum Dipped Tires,” Schneidmiller wrote The Splash about Friday’s event. The Firestone brothers went on to great prominence in the Firestone Company. As head of the company for 13 years, Raymond increased annual sales from $1.4 billion to $3.9 billion. Leonard directed Firestone of California and later started a winery with his son. He is the grandfather of Andrew Firestone of ABC’s “The Bachelor.” The event attracted about 100 club members, neighbors and friends to the Wicomico neighborhood property.

RIM ride draws cyclists

Second RIM ride a success The Liberty Lake Centennial Rotary Club would like to thank everyone who participated in the second annual Rotary in Motion (RIM) ride. We especially would like to thank all of the volunteers for their help and support to make this event a success. Volunteers included the Christian Motorcycle Club, the Bike Hub, Wheel Sport, Liberty Lake SCOPE, Nancy and Sam Brubaker and all of our Rotarians. Momentum Ink printed our very cool long sleeve T-shirts. The Liberty Lake Quiznos sandwiches were enjoyed by everyone. We appreciate the support from our major sponsors, including Washington Trust Bank, Greenstone, Meadowwood Technology Campus, Safeway, Liberty Closing & Escrow, Vista Window Cleaning, Mountain Dog Sign Company, The Kitchen Engine, State Farm, Starr & Brown and Associated Industries. This year’s RIM ride was held on Sunday. The Liberty Lake Rotary Club was thrilled to have nearly 200 riders participate. The riders had a choice of doing the 5-mile family ride, 15, 25, 50 or 100-mile routes. Each route had supported rest stops with great snacks provided by Safeway. We had 30 riders complete the 100-mile challenge ride and 70 riders completed the 50-mile scenic ride around Hauser and Newman lakes. The proceeds from this year’s ride will benefit the Liberty Lake Rotary Club, including various projects in our local Liberty Lake Community. Mark your calendar: the third annual Rotary in Motion (RIM) Ride will be Sunday, Sept. 15, 2013.

Bailey Wills, 12, relaxes in a 1941 Graham Hollywood owned by Lynn and Susie Main, the “Bailey’s Choice” winner in the eighth annual Bailey’s Brigade Car Show held Sept. 9 at Allsport Polaris in Liberty Lake. The show raised $6,808 for the Juvenile Diabetes Research Foundation Walk for a Cure. Combined with the Bailey’s Brigade team’s letter-writing campaign, which raised $3,802, the 2012 goal of $10,000 was surpassed. About 76 cars participated, and the Liberty Lake Kiwanis sold concessions for the cause. Other winners included: People's Choice, 1939 Ford owned by Walt Nicholson; Elite Class, 1929 Sedan Delivery owned by Lynn and Susie Main; Best Convertible, Best Restoration to Original and Best in Show, 1959 Ford Skyliner owned by Jean Oster.

Liberty Lake Police Officer Mike Bogenreif handles a donation of pizza from River City Pizza in Otis Orchards Saturday in honor of national Say Thank You to a Police Officer Day. The pizza donation was organized by Treasure Brooks of Liberty Lake, whose husband is a police officer in Coeur d’Alene. Brooks and wives from the Coeur d’Alene Police Department arranged similar appreciation meals for that department. Brooks said River City Pizza provided the dinner “without hesitation,” and it fed Bogenreif and other officers on duty Saturday, including representatives from the Spokane County Sheriff’s Office and Spokane Valley Police Department.

Before and after the goats A group of 27 goats brought in to tackle weeds along a city-owned hillside above the arboretum and along North Garry Road have nearly finished their work, Liberty Lake Parks and Open Space Superintendent Jennifer Camp said Tuesday. Camp said the goats will likely finish at the end of the week, and while the anticipated 2 ½ weeks of grazing took longer than anticipated, Green Goat Rental agreed to “keeping the costs the same,” Camp said. She added the great results and feedback from the community has the city considering bringing the goats back to take on some knapweed patches at Rocky Hill Park later this fall.
