I’ve had it with those who continually support leaders (so-called) who demand more taxes, lie and misconstrue facts.
I graduated from Walla Walla High School in 1966. I was a sophomore in 1963 and we made the move to the new campus during Christmas break. It looked, and was, a state of the art architectural design and campus setting.
The recent letter to the editor from a local wind power denier (LWPD) is in response to another reader’s response to one of the LWPD’s letters.

And they still strive to be the best — not because we deserve you, but because if they let up our children’s lives and the future of our Valley would be considerably less.
Vote no on Walla Walla High School science bond.
