The forces that steer the Walla Walla economy have largely smiled on the Valley’s residents over the past two years.

The pleas for an increase in wages and a share of the financial gain has devolved into a debate on the minimum wage.
I was brought up by two hard working and vigorous Latino migrant parents, Vicente and Maria, who dedicated their lives to providing their children a better future. My dad was always on the job, working in orchards, landscaping, anything and everything that he was given the opportunity to do.
You probably haven’t heard of a surgical procedure that relieves chest pain by tying off a minor artery. It worked, but it was abandoned. I’ll explain why later. But first, some other things that didn’t work or were proven to be dangerous.
