The auditorium was to have been updated as you report. That was two Bonds, Green Park and Sharpstein, and the new facilities building, past. Twenty years (?) since it was built. Those administrations, people, are long gone.
We in the building trades, familiar with the district, have repeatedly witnessed their failure to maintain the facilities. That has improved and I've greater confidence today.
We are largely in agreement faterof5, no apology necessary.
I’d liked the UB editorial this morning. I disagree. It brought to mind my earlier posting here, where my comments will be more germane.
Yes, schuelaw and fatherof5, many in this community have decades of memory of the school district and the construction of Wa-Hi fifty years ago. The current school board and superintendent are burdened by the poor choices their predecessors have done. You’re free to infer anything about the press and today’s media you like. Your replies to me, however, don’t correspond to anything I’d written.
I'd not called the auditorium a failure. I'd called its design inadequate from the beginning. I've recently read about building phased-projects. My comment above may indicate how well that's worked. Other remarks above, I'd read earlier this week, may require some fact-checking. Perhaps clarity of definitions?
"Wa-Hi is a 50 year-old series of buildings that have never been remodeled.“
How many walls must be knocked down and floor-plans changed? “Never” is incorrect with regards the north-wing of the Academic building and parts of the Commons.
The fitness center at Wa-Hi will be our third? I think so? Will this be the good money after the bad?
When I read these errors I don't know if they come from the district or hearsay? If they come from the district, then perhaps there's a reason the public lack trust.
That said, I support the bond.
Yes, it was so much better when the uninsured used ERs that raised all our rates and medical costs bankrupted families.
"The drama classes will still have no classrooms or storage capacity for sets and costumes"
The lack of these was known before the bond was passed and the building built. One only had to read and look at the informational flyers of that 1990s bond. These failures are in part why I lack trust of the district. Technology advances will probably make any new building inadequate within a short timeframe, the library and technology buildings being good examples.
I strongly support a new science building and Lincoln as the greatest priority due safety concerns and lab inadequacies.
Our secondary education model itself appears unsuited to the 21st century. That's another discussion for another time.
I enjoyed this very much. Infrastructure, workers unseen, we take for granted. More like this, please.
The "destruction of the tea" was conducted by men in the dark of night wearing disguise. How can the Republican Representatives who self-identify in this government shutdown be upholding their oath, or affirmation, to uphold the Constitution?
I cannot understand how our own Representative, who voted against food stamps, represents herself as Christian?
The instructions are in the Preamble, "establish justice, insure domestic tranquility, provide for the common defense, promote the general welfare."
The AHA is law. The GOP declined participation in drafting the law, they cannot be allowed to thwart and relitigate law by withholding good governance.
I think the first error is thinking that economics follow rational concepts.
The difference of the face on the bill changes its worth? It's a piece of paper!
The classification of marijuana as a narcotic is as reasonable as legislating Pi = 3.
I appreciate Mr. Westneat's bold thinking. It's also time to become unicameral and eliminate the Senate. None can make the case they've earned their pay, likely few could demonstrate they've understood their Oath and the Constitutional Articles and Sections pertaining to the work they were elected to perform.
A Walla Walla County Courthouse door on Main St. is patched where a Deputy shot through the door (and missed) at a fleeing defendant. I was a young boy at the time.
