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.
ose Street decision required common sense I would like to offer a few hints regarding bicycle paths connecting College Place (where I live) and Walla Walla. First, I and many others pointed out in letters and calls that it would be much “less safe” changing Rose Street to a two-lane with a middle turn lane and bike paths. Transit buses actually stop several times, going both directions, to pick up riders.
United Way of Walla Walla took a different focus this year, pledging to allocate a large chunk of its donations to reduce problems associated with mental health in the Valley.
Memorial Day. The day when people wave the flag and talk about how much they support the troops, how they appreciate everything they have done for us. I say hogwash!
Jim Lehmann’s letter to the editor published on May 19 is most certainly an “attack letter!” Mr. Lehmann opines that Vernon Filan and others (that would include me) write letters “giving our opinions with unsupported and undocumented babblings.”
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.
An after-school program at Garrison Middle School is tackling a serious statewide (and national) concern that’s vexing governors and lawmakers. Too few students, particularly minority students, are seeking careers in science, technology, engineering and math.
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.”
Ask yourself what matters more, your children’s education or their health care?
On May 19 a former Walla Walla School Board member wrote a letter in which he suggested I am “a bully” who uses “unsupported and undocumented babblings” in my letters to the U-B concerning school board decisions and activities. He also said, “Never once did Vernon participate in an honest conversation about any fact or issue.” The writer neglected to give examples of inaccurate facts I have used.
Unfortunately, Congress waits to make decisions until after most students have decided which school they will attend.
The cost of college, by nearly anybody’s standard is incredibly expensive. It’s like buying a new car, a pretty good one, every year.
There I would like to respond to Sheri Reiswig’s letter defending veterans from Annie Capestany and others who believe we are as bad as those we are fighting by expressing gratitude to veterans.
