So what will happen to that $190,000 that is from FEMA and private insurance? That money was given with the intent to repair, not tear down. I hope someone keeps a close eye on this and makes sure the money is spent for what it was intended for.
Less than 2 years in prison if convicted? Are you kidding? Torres-Rodriguez and Rutherfords hands are just as dirty as Valdez's. How is it people convicted of less severe crimes get longer sentences? This is just a slap on the hand which sends the message: you can get away with murder...literally.
Hilarious. I bet he wasn't expecting that. I would have loved to have seen his face when she whipped out her revolver. Go grandma!
Hilarious! I knew Walla Walla was full of nut cases.
Yes!! I second Ross and Kohls. Can't wait...
I will definitely support, especially if they put in more clothing stores. I can't wait to see the list of stores they have planned to come in.
It would be nice if some more stores were put on the East side of town as well, but for now I'll settle for the mall location.
Well I hope they throw them away and not try to salvage them. Yuck!
Well it's about time! Walla Walla is desperate for more places to shop and it would be great to see some big name stores go in, especially in the Eastgate area. I feel Walla Walla caters too much to tourism (wineries, B&B's, hotels, etc.) and has forgotten about the locals that live here. By putting in more stores people will stop having to go to Tri-cities to do their shopping.
Of course he wrote those emails emphatically apologizing after he got caught. He was probably hoping Mr. Grant wouldn't press charges. He got one thing right though...it was incredibly stupid and juvenile. I imagine this behavior will make patrons think twice about eating at his restaurant.
I appreciate your explanation above, but I still feel that once WA-HI loses the extra 350 kids, it will help solve a lot of the parking issues. Same for the commons...once the kids are gone, long lines and space won't be as much of an issue. Yeah...it would be "neat" if they had a circular hub like Mead HS to gather before and after school, but why can't they can do that in the current commons?
As for the music rooms, my question still stands. Why didn't they incorporate these extra rooms back in 1991 when the auditorium was originally built? Same question for the library. It seems wrong to fix these boo-boos now at the tax payers expense.
As I mentioned before, I'm not saying that some remodeling doesn't need to be done...I think it does. The science and academic building really do need some work to expand the classrooms and update the heating/cooling efficiency. I think storage needs to be addressed along with updated science fixtures, technology and more outlets in all the classrooms. These are all functional items that I see teachers and students putting to good use.
With being in a recession and many people out of work and behind on their bills already, pockets don't run very deep. Fix the necessary items, but leave the things that aren't broke.
