Well, I managed to make it back to work today after unplugging from the blog and twitter for a week. I'd like to give a hat tip (as Huckleberries blog master D.F. Oliveria would say) to fellow reporter Lisa Leinberger, who kept the blog from being a vacant white space while I was gone.
Now it's time to get back to the Monday routine, which means a recap of what you may have missed in Saturday's Valley Voice. Lisa has written a story about West Valley School District teachers getting training on new web site software that lets them post online and allows students to listen to a class they may have missed.
Correspondent Cindy Hval took a look at the 2011 Inland Northwest Homeschool Conference, which will be held this weekend in the Valley. Correspondent Steve Christilaw talked to the tennis coach at University High School about the challanges of practicing indoors because of the weather and what the team looks like this year.
