I am writing with regard to the column by Frank Trapani printed on May 31 titled, “Breast-feeding baby gives the best start.”
Richard Milhous Obama — why has he not resigned?
Robert Day’s letter to the editor was right!
The past 150 years provide a natural experiment that shows that the global temperature anomaly has not responded to our anthropogenic carbon dioxide emissions
This letter is in connection with our new school transportation facility. It has been a great thing for the bus drivers.
It is time again to commend the grounds keepers of each local cemetery. They do such excellent work the year round. Memorial Day requires extra preparation and much clean up so that we, the public, can honor our loved ones in comfort and ease. The extended days to leave flowers, etc. on the graves is appreciated also.
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.
Into the midst of our dreamy lives comes a wake up call with the Walla Walla University production of “Mother Courage and Her Children.”
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.
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.”
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.
I never thought I would ever defend the IRS, but I have to respond to the flap over the latest so-called “scandal.”
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.
