Valley school board decides: Bigger high school, bigger bond, lower rate

  • Oct 10, 2014 at 3:35PM

I just woke up!” Manila’s sleepy claim fit perfectly with the “Divas” theme of the night’s show. It probably wasn’t true though, because this particular diva, like his fellow performers, was already made-up for her appearance in the semimonthly “Night Queens” drag show at the bistro, and doing makeup takes a while.
