I too am happy to see the event go back to what it was long ago. It was set on the grounds of Walla Walla High School and there might have been a handful to vendors but it was not the focus. The focus was family and families gathering to see the wonderful mystical balloons. You could see the balloons sailing the skys and waving to the people who were below in their pajamas, with sleepy kids and just enjoying. It has become a mini fair out at the fairgrounds where their is carnival rides, food booths and vendors galore. You could hardly move around and the balloons didn't seem to ride over neighborhoods any longer. Folks spent money like crazy on all the extras. Our police were on high alert as if it was the fair. I for one look forward to the old style where the balloons were the focus.
People in this world have become crazy. Why in the world do you need to carry a gun to work? Call 911 and save a life.
Its called poor management. The Avairy itself brought much delight to young and old and it didn't cost anything. What a hugh part of Pioneer Park will be missing. I hope we don't fill it in and use it for a storage shed like we did when we got rid of the much used swimming pool. Oh well it doesn't matter what voters think.
Not really. A lot of folks are paid by tax dollar money and they get big salaries. It's just that not all of us have our salaries published in the Union Bulletin.
I personally think that what each of those people make is not necessary to publish in the Union Bulletin. I understand it is public record and I guess it should be public record. However, they applied for those jobs and they are administrative positions which are looked at by their peers. They are apparently doing a good job and thus retain their positions and receive raises for their efforts. Why is it ok for professional athletes to get absurd amounts of money to play a sport and administrators not to make monies much less that a professional athlete and they have gotten the education they have to hold these jobs. I am not an administrator but assist one in my position at my employment and I can attest they work hard for what they get. When others go home at the end of the day they may be home but they are working. On weekends the same. Leave them alone.
Finally some sense. Thank You.
Race is what this is all about. I did not know Guerra but I know he did not deserve to be killed.
A lot of might in your story. You are right I was not there but shoot to stop someone is different than shot to kill. Mr. Saul could have called the police
Mr. Saul had a right to intervene with the break in however Mr. Saul crossed the line when he exited the building and hunted him down and shot him repeatedly until he fell dead. Mr. Saul didn't know who he was or if he had a rap sheet as long as his arm he was wrong when he left his store and he was wrong when he fired more than one shot. Somehow the court system cleared Saul of criminal law suits and we accept that whether we believe it is right or wrong but now Mr.Saul has a Civil Lawsuit to face and if what he did was right then the courts will agree but if they don't then Mr. Saul will pay. Mr. Saul is the winner either way because he still has a life and his family doesn't visit him at a grave site. I can tell you if the tables were turned the Hispanic man would be sitting on death row now.
The First Congregational Church is amazing and of course the American Red Cross who helped make this happen. Very gracious.
