Budget cuts are being put forth as the reason, but considering that East Valley has planned to eliminate middle school for the last year, that’s only half the story. (KREM)

Please welcome our guest speaker, maybe you’ve heard of him — Today, the White House will let Bridgeport High School, a small school in Bridgeport, Wash., know if they were chosen to have President Barack Obama speak at their commencement. They were one of three finalists for the honor. (KXLY)
