Tax service sprouts wheels


Liberty Tax Service is making house calls.

The Rose Street operation is offering a mobile service to clients who are disabled or don't have transportation. The service may be of particular use to residents of nursing homes and retirement centers, said Sharon Dodgin, owner of the local Liberty Tax Service office, 688 E. Rose St.

Dodgin said clients just need to call the office to schedule an appointment, and arrangements will be made to visit clients at their homes.

To arrange such an appointment call 526-5081 or e-mail: .

Woodward Canyon's wines will help make up the flavor at the third annual Feast Walla Walla event April 10.

The Lowden winery was inadvertently omitted from the list of wineries and eateries slated for this year's foodie festival.

In exchange for a $45 ticket, guests get 10 tokens which are then traded for samples of food and wine from participating establishments. Woodward Canyon is one of more than 20 wineries signed on to pour its blends. To learn more visit: .


It's no surprise to Walla Wallans the community is a virtual wine haven.

But wine judge and hobby winemaker Willy Volk ranks the "out-of-the-way" community as one of the 25 greatest cities in the world for drinking wine. His recently published list on travel blog Gadling refers to Walla Walla as "one of the hottest wine regions." He specifically recommends Pepper Bridge Winery as one of many great producers.

"In the small but charming downtown there are enough tasting rooms to keep a wine tourist busy for days. Add in a few very high quality restaurants (Saffron and Brasserie Four, for example), and Walla Walla is one of the world's most inviting and laid-back wine towns," he writes. Apart from Walla Walla, Bellingham was the only other Washington community to make Volk's list.
