Yeah, the Port could work on more manufacturing jobs that pay more than all the tourist/agriculture jobs. When Tyson left, a huge chunk of money spent locally went out the window.

Pretty sure GW decided that we don't have the right to privacy and enacted the Patriot Act . . . now we all have him to thank for the numerous TSA stories and decipher if jello is more dangerous than a granola bar.

Unfortunately, soy products are not healthy. School lunches would be healthier if the free/reduced lunch reimbursement rates for schools was higher. How about the areas in the metro areas where a "grocery store" does not exist. People do not cook food from scratch anymore.

Pretty sure GREED is a general human flaw that is in every political party. For maximizing profits, Republicans are ok with jobs being sent overseas years ago. Now these greedy companies are shipping chickens to CHINA so they can process the meat and export the same product back to us because it's cheaper than creating manufacturing jobs in America. Totally makes sense. Pretty sure Obama has nothing to do with this issue, it's a greed factor that seems to keep Americans in check.

If people have issues with Turner, why don't they go to the many roundtable discussions he has??? Have an actual conversation with him and ask questions without a hidden agenda. He's been forthcoming when I asked why they cannot use drug sniffing dogs at Wa-Hi, he's been honest that sometimes deputies are putting their lives at risk if they are not able to have radio contact, such as pulling people over, as well as having 24/7 patrol that has not happened in a few years. Exempt employees get hosed simply because there is always more work to do but the public doesn't care if you need sleep or if you have a family.

If sycamore trees are so vital to Walla Walla's identity, why doesn't the city/community plant new sycamore trees. They are living plants who can get sick, infested, die, etc. But no, that would be doing something proactive. rolling my eyes

I obviously did not realize the noise I heard was gunshots, it sounded like firecrackers. I live about 10 blocks away.

Wow! Is he going to sue the Sun for causing UV damage to the paint job? Oh, and sue all the citizens of Walla Walla for causing air pollution that is making the inside of her car smell like something other than "professional detail" scent? Good thing it didn't rain, then there would be STREAKS on the car from the dust! Oh the horror!!!!
