We've dealt with a lot over the past three weeks. The big story has been the aftermath of the April 27th tornado outbreak. The recovery effort is well underway and stories surrounding it will be prevalent in the weeks to come. But a couple of good things happened as well recently and I want to make sure you know about them. First, I'd like to congratulate Gay Barnes, a first grade teacher at Madison's Horizon Elementary, who was named Alabama's teacher of the year. This is the second time in five years a teacher from Madison has won this award and it's something the whole city of Madison should be proud of. And we should also be proud of Megan Roman, a student at Bob Jones High School who wrote Alabama's winning essay in the U.S. Institute of Peace 24th Annual National Peace Essay Contest. She now moves on to the national competition and we wish her the best of luck. I don't know about you, but I think these two stories are the kind of good news we can use about now. I'm Vanessa Oubre and that's my take. What's yours?
