Bigdog 1 month, 2 weeks ago on Speeders in Walla Walla cause two Halloween collisions

Very lucky no children were killed, as they were all across the country on Friday night! This kind of driving is an every day occurrence in Walla Walla. Thankfully, a cognizant Sheriff out there was doing his / her job! There is much more work to be done both in the City and County!

Very true - there are many more areas where speed is a problem. I see cars that will not slow down on a regular basis when there are children, elderly, and handicapped folks, etc..... near the roads. Not to mention the larger trucks which could kill or maim even if you are in a car!

News just in! Drivers in general are a threat everyday in Walla Walla! It is not just Halloween that folks need to be concerned about motorists. I see no traffic speed enforcement anywhere in Walla Walla. Neither the city nor county deem speed limit laws worthy of enforcement. Speeding is the order of the day - making it surprising that not more pedestrians are run over. The stretch on Wilbur Street between Alder and Bryant is a drag strip where cars travel 50-60 MPH daily. There are children, pets, and cars backing out of driveways - yet still neither the city or county feels writing a few tickets is worth their time.

Now if only the UB would take the same neutral approach as Police Chief Scott Bieber… he is absolutely a class act!

WOW! This schmuck will be out on the streets gangbanging and slinging meth in less than a year! Wonder who he will be party to killing next? Something went terribly sideways in the process here. There are things horrifically wrong with our criminal justice system! All the way from our laws, the prosecution of those laws; and the way too forgiving judges! What a shame for the victim and her family. This is NOT justice!

Bigdog 2 months, 1 week ago on Letter - Receptionist at Sheriff’s Office offended

Seriously, why do you even give a damn what Cooper said? It sounds like you have much higher aspirations than being a part-time worker at the Sheriff's Office. Just don't break your arm patting yourself on the back over your educational accomplishments. That is only part of the equation for a successful career. I find this letter to be unprofessional on all levels, and really do not understand why you would post it.

Bigdog 2 months, 2 weeks ago on State employees have waited long enough for wage increase

This is precisely why the folks downtown have no clue about the realities of raises in the private sector, or even in state employment. Many employees actually take pay decreases and a reduction in hours. Most are fortunate to remain where they are at! Yet, city hall has consistently has given themselves raise after raise!

Bigdog 2 months, 2 weeks ago on Letter - Lack of transparency on Cooper’s health concerning

Yes...I can see your point and really wonder how one can even be running for office - knowing the if and when release for duty is unknown. In my case specifically, my employer wanted to cut me loose believing my injury gave me limitations. It took quite a fight to return to work. As you state - all cases and their outcome can be different.
