Winter hit with a vengeance over Monday night and into Tuesday.
The table setting at the Northstar Blending Experience is a cross between “Downton Abbey” and a chemistry lab.
When it comes to leaves, what goes down must come up. As many homeowners and anyone who parks underneath a tree these days can attest, the leaves are falling. This leads to leaf blowers roaring, rakes being unlimbered and the annual appearance of “the claw.”

On Oct. 26, 13 Whitman College art students had a chance to work with one of the largest printing presses ever devised, though this press was originally invented for a completely different purpose. “It is unusual for students to work on something that big,” assistant professor of art Nicole Pietrantoni said
Halloween décor, from lighthearted and whimsical to dark and foreboding
Firmly embedded in religious roots, Halloween for centuries has been associated with celebrations and festivals of the dead.

Garrison students trickle into the locker room at 6:30 a.m., wipe the sleep from their eyes, and lace up their bright pink and electric yellow indoor soccer shoes. They sport the jerseys of Real Madrid, Barcelona and other professional teams hoping to dribble past opponents and score a goal All this before breakfast is served in the school cafeteria.
Mastering the bo takes the right techniques and a lot of practice.
Few weapons are older than the bow and arrow. The list includes the spear, atlatl, large rocks and the pointed insult. Despite its ancient origins, archery still manages to captivate the modern psyche like few weapons can, evidenced by the bow’s continued presence in film and fiction. It isn’t hard to name movies with a major archery component — “Killing Season,” “The Avengers,” “Hunger Games,” “Rambo,” “Avatar” and a quiver full of others, including myriad incarnations of Robin Hood.

WALLA WALLA — If you are the shy type, don’t sit on top of a stagecoach. “People always look,” said Daryl Hopson, as heads turned to watch him guiding the bright red and yellow carriage around the county fairgrounds last week.

She’s the oldest one in the state, yet somehow her timeless nature makes us feel young at heart. Whether 4 years old or 85, we brave the heat, dust and waning days of summer — the endless cycle toward school, football, volleyball and approaching fall — in our futile efforts to court this grand old dame. We wine and dine her along the food court row. Applaud her performance from the grandstands or the hay bales of festival seating. Cheer her on while cowboys test their skills in the tilled dirt of the rodeo arena.
