I wanted to acknowledge Alfred Diaz and the Union-Bulletin for covering the CrewSpace project at Walla Walla’s library — we were tickled to see the story on page one! Of course, to the team that has been working on this endeavor for the last year, it has always been front-page news.
A large school district in Virginia is adopting a program to reduce head trauma. It will be watched by the nation much like Washington’s Lystedt Act.
The school year is wrapping up around the Valley and that means high school football teams are gearing up for the fall season. It won’t be long until Friday nights will be filled with the sounds of cheers and, well, thumps.

Into the midst of our dreamy lives comes a wake up call with the Walla Walla University production of “Mother Courage and Her Children.”
The discovery of a patch of genetically altered wheat in Eastern Oregon might be cause for some concern, but there is no reason to panic.

A Garrison Middle School after-school program is now focusing on space and science, with the goal of getting some of the kids hooked on science.

While I thoroughly enjoyed the article on Eric Idle’s surprise performance at the Whitman graduation, the U-B neglected one huge part — the Walla Walla Valley Band and it’s co-director, Jesus Vasquez.
We’re on the verge of having our Pioneer Park Aviary closed forever. The birds will be sold and rehomed. The enclosures will be removed. A unique piece of our community will be lost.
Research on global climate change has been going on for more than a hundred years, and scientists almost unanimously agree that our world is warming and that humans are the dominant cause.
I never thought I would ever defend the IRS, but I have to respond to the flap over the latest so-called “scandal.”
