One of the best ways to measure up candidates for public office is to put them next to each other, fire a few questions their way and compare and contrast their answers.

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

  • Oct 10, 2014 at 3:35PM

Voters will decide on a $246 million school bond in the Snoqualmie Valley School District in February.

Yet instead of either the staff-recommended 2,400-student high school, or the 2,100-student high school proposed by architects, the board has reached for something in between.

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.
