   As you go down Sprague and drive by all the stores and restaurants and business are you ever curious about their stories, their histories? In the Valley there are a lot of long time businesses whose stories the Spokane Valley Scoop is collecting one by one. Businesses like Falco's and Behm's Creamery are into their third generation and training their forth.

   In the Scoop archives you can read about Mark Hollenback's journey as boy travelling from the midwest to Spokane in a Nash touring car and how he eventually bought the Nash dealership here and turned it into the present day Dishman Dodge. You can read the story of how Bud and Connie Haskins came from Oklahoma with their two smalll children in the 40's and built The Haskins Company from scratch. Did you know that The Longhorn started in Houston and was there 10 years before moving to a small cafe in downtown Spokane in 1958? It's all in the Scoop, along with Valley trivea and tips on how to save money in the Valley. Check out the past stories  and sign up for your free monthly copy at SpokaneValleyScoop.com.
