For seven years, Helpline in Walla Walla has gone through the stomach to reach the community’s heart.
There are two features of this time of year that make my heart glad.
The normally staid Walla Walla Valley experienced a couple of wild weather days this past week. April kicked up its heels with a springtime smorgasbord that featured a severe thunderstorm on Thursday evening and heavy rain early Sunday morning, followed by a strong wind event during the day.
He's gone from the Air Force to engineering, art, teaching, music and sports.
Roy Anderson is a modern-day Renaissance man.
It started out to be a simple ceremony but became more complicated for an engaged couple. At least two weeks before the big day, Albert “Al” Marion joked that “I should have just gone and eloped.”
Mario is a name I suspect many of you are familiar with. He was one of the earliest touchstones in my gaming career, although for various reasons I’ve played relatively few of the Mario games that have come out in the last half-decade or so.
I’m so lucky I live in Walla Walla, because bicycles are my favorite form of transportation.
I think the most memorable single day of all my years as a student was the afternoon I got to examine moon rocks in graduate school.
My mom always says there is only so much you can do with two arms and two legs. One thing I love to do is look at styles, how people dress and wear their hair, and how different styles seem to repeat themselves over time.
Your wandering weatherperson has returned from his pilgrimage to the East a few pounds heavier than he departed, with a renewed appreciation of his Maryland roots — particularly in the culinary realm. If there is anything better in this world than crab cakes and a hot corned beef sandwich on rye (with mustard, of course), your forecaster has yet to encounter them.
Not only is Walla Walla Community College seeded among the Top 5 community colleges nationwide, but its postsecondary agriculture students won national awards at competition in Louisville, Ky., said Melissa Harrison, interim director for marketing, media and graphics. “It’s been a fabulous week at WWCC,” she enthused.
Think about what spring brings to the Walla Walla Valley to enhance liveability. For starters, the sun’s warmth is turned up and the wear of winter is replaced with bright, vibrant flowers.
Walla Walla Symphony musicians juggle their lives so the show can go on.
A great symphony performance is a seemingly miraculous balance of sound and rhythm — all of which must come together with spot-on timing among dozens of musicians.
I have decided to move with the times and add enhanced features to my columns.
Though there may still be a chill in the air and possible snow in the forecast, signs of spring are showing up all around here in Caviano, in southern Switzerland near the Italian border.
