What in the world does the Union Bulletin have against Sheriff John Turner?
Many years ago I recall a Pomeroy Alumni banquet speaker from Sweden saying, “The United States will never be defeated because every guy who is a guy has a gun.”
Alas, the scumbag terrorists assault us continually, and we refuse to consider honestly any means of combating their atrocities.
I didn’t even have the time to rejoice for the news of a bicycle path connecting College Place to Walla Walla, when I heard a petition from a few against it has already changed the mind of the Walla Walla City Council.
Major news networks carry news of gun violence/shootings nearly every day, often combined with the news of record gun sales!
To the voters in Umatilla County pertaining to the county commissioner position.
Recently scientists for the first time recorded a CO2 level of 400 parts per million at Mauna Loa observatory in Hawaii. The last time the level was this high was millions of years before modern humans existed.
In late 2012, I relinquished my position as an elected official serving as a director for the Walla Walla School District Board of Education.
Regarding the U-B editorial on May 10 (“Rescinding Rose Street vote ...).
The City Council reversed its decision to redesign the striping of Rose Street based on a “huge public outcry,” according to the Union-Bulletin. Are City Council decisions made according to who cries out the loudest and gets signatures on a petition? Is it an “us vs. them” thing, or are we a community?
May is National Bike Month!
I’ll begin with Robert Day’s letter on May 3. He’s correct. The NRA gets its power from the American people.
