  • The Wal-Mart corporation has confirmed the sale of the south Redmond store but declines to reveal the buyer until the deal is set.

Work continues on the north Redmond location of a future Wal-Mart Supercenter.
  • Redmond Chamber of Commerce held its award's dinner last week, naming Community First Bank as Business of the Year. Busy volunteer Angela Boothroyd was selected Citizen of the Year and Gary Ollerenshaw was given the Community Involvement Award.
  • Redmond High School's principal Jon Bullock has proposed breaking the student body into career-themed "academies" in order to make school more relevent and help kids and teachers get to know each other better. The school board is considering the concept.
  • The Spokesman's yearly edition of "Profiles," a who's who guide to Redmond area businesses and organizations, can be found in the Feb. 7 issue of the paper.
