    A group of dedicated Rotary Club of Spokane Valley volunteers worked for a handful of hours in the biting cold Tuesday morning to get the Christmas tree in the University City parking lot ready for tonight's Celebration of Lights.

Shahid collected a press pass and two rubber pellet balls from a police stun grenade donated by Stephanie Lecci, a newscast producer for St. Louis Public Radio.
