SEATTLE — It turns out after all the shock and talk, all the resolve and promise, we are right back where we started.
WALLA WALLA — The seventh generation, sustainability, public art, punishment, Latinos and the future of food.
Roubideau Artisan Cheese will be part of Dayton’s Blue Mountain Station.
DAYTON — When Joseph Coniglio moved to Walla Walla from Colorado, he decided he’d had enough of herding goats. Now, he’s planning to set up shop in Dayton’s artisan food processing park, Blue Mountain Station, as the proprietor of Roubideau Artisan Cheese.
J. Frank Munns, who died in January, left more than 500 works on paper and canvas, numerous sketchbooks and almost 100 sculptural elements.
J. Frank Munns was about as Southeastern Washington as they come. Born in Walla Walla in 1943 to the Munns-Bergevin farming clan that had long lived in the Palouse, his early relatives included French trappers who settled in the Valley.

I saw the Rose Street plan was OK’d by City Council.
I would like to commend the Walla Walla City Council on its decision to repair Rose Street. It is long overdue.
Well, those of us that have to use Rose Street — the hazardous, tire-busting, wheel-alignment nightmare — are pleased to see that our street is going to receive a whole new street.
Living near Rose Street, I have hardly ever seen a cyclist using any part of the street. There is an excellent path along Rose Street already.
I am not sure I see any net benefit to our community from the proposed West Rose Street project “improvements.”
When I’m in Walla Walla and want to go to College Place, I avoid Rose Street and go by way of Dalles Military Road because it is well maintained. Why has Rose Street been allowed to deteriorate?
A few years ago the Walla Walla City Council used street repair funds for a small section of Isaacs Avenue, not for repair but for sidewalks, lamp post and little concrete islands that now contain a variety of weeds. There were apparently no funds left over to repair other streets.
