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.

Lessons of ‘Best of the Valley’: In a competition this strong, we all win
Mar 28 2013, 2:51 PM
We’ve been doing Best of the Valley for enough years now to know the drill: Put the ballots out in February, wait several weeks, rush to count the results and put together an entire section letting folks know the annual winners.
Locals, business owners and officials take this stuff pretty seriously. The plaques often take a place of pride in offices and restaurants.
We took the contest online a few years ago, in an effort to prevent ballot-stuffing. It now takes us about two days to tally all the votes.
