Mar 26 2013, 3:17 PM

Somebody drove the truck that killed 57-year-old Lucinda Fisher, also known as Lucinda Pieczatkowski, in the early hours of January 1, 2013.

Mar 27 2013, 4:26 PM
Named “Best Insurance Agency” by Record readers, Hauglie Insurance founder Kevin Hauglie shared his thoughts on keeping locals safe from the unexpected.
He started the business in 1985 by “picking up the Valley phone book and offering to help.”

History detective: Snoqualmie's Tom Burford is Middle School Educator of the Year
Mar 27 2013, 4:53 PM
No one wants to leave Thomas Burford’s classroom in Snoqualmie Middle School, although the bell has rung. A few students are edging toward the door, as Burford hurriedly finishes telling his story of the four-state April Fool’s joke, but almost all of them wait to hear the whole thing.
It’s not just that they went to know what happened, since he tells them up-front what the joke was. They want to know what happened next, to find out how the joke could affect people in four different states, and months later.
That’s how Burford, recently named the Snoqualmie Valley Schools Foundation Middle School Educator of the Year, makes the last few minutes of his history class count.

Snoqualmie Valley Schools Foundation’s High School Educator of the Year is a man with a 25-year history at Mount Si High School. Counselor Joe Galagan has been helping about 400 Mount Si High School students each year to find their own answers, and plans to look for some of his own at the end of the school year, when he will retire.
Here, in his own words, is Galagan’s story:
“I walked into Mount Si High school for the first time on a bright, sunny day in August 1987. The mountain was scenic, looming and massive, symbolically perched ever so close to the school (or so it seemed at first glance).

Opstad Elementary's Marianne Bradburn is Elementary Educator of the Year
Mar 27 2013, 4:59 PM
It’s definitely an occasion for “The Awesome Song” as the school day ends in Marianne Bradburn’s classroom. Maybe it was because she announced “No homework tonight!” or maybe because the sun was out and students could walk across the playground to their buses.
Whatever the reason, the students were chanting right along with their teacher as she led them out the door. “A-W-E-S-O-M-E! Awesome, awesome, awesome, that’s the way to be,” they sang, punctuating the “whoo!” at the end with skips and jumps.
