When my daughters were little it took them quite a while to realize my offer of “one cookie or two” didn’t tell the whole story. I’d framed the choice to suit my own purposes.
That memory comes to mind when I read about choices offered concerning Wa-Hi/Lincoln remodeling or building new.
Is there a survey somewhere telling which buildings are beyond repair and which ones could be renovated for considerably less cost than building new?
I appreciate the Union-Bulletin’s efforts to elicit citizen input but wonder if that is what the Walla Walla School Board and decision makers will use as a guideline.
What if the real need is for two schools to serve regular and alternative students? What if the plans for new buildings look back to 1960 instead of ahead to 2013 and beyond?
How can we find out? I’d like to know. Who can help?
