Poll was probably taken on the west side. Take that same poll here in the east and it would be different I'm thinking.

Little League fields are just a little ways away too along with a softball complex that hosts tourneys during the summer and soccer tourneys. Not a good idea... WWCC would be a much more foggy... place.

goldlizard 3 months ago on Letter - Guns have no place at schools

I agree Jane! We should only let the government agencies, federal agencies, and military have guns. This way if we as a people disagree or protest against anything they don't take too kindly too, like protesting a war or the taking away of our constitutional rights, they can eliminate the problem with no fuss and no muss. You're right Jane this is a brilliant idea! I mean what if you are in your home and someone breaks in...you don't have to worry about anything...you can just let your relatives worry about taking care of the funeral. I'm not sure you realize this or not Jane but every major mass shooting in the recent past that I can remember was perpetrated by someone who not only had mental health issues, but was also a liberal democrat. If you really want to make a change in our society fix the mental health system and critically think before you write a letter to the editor. If you are still determined on taking away guns, then by all means, take them away from the liberal democrats. We would all be safer in the long run.

Not paying attention to the real statistics and the real numbers makes me think that your property must be under sea level dogman12... Jesh!

Don't pay attention to the man behind the curtain. Stay asleep people and don't check the real facts... There is a multi-billion dollar business here and they are running a great con job on America. SMH

Some people are never happy. Seems Barracuda and Namvet60 don't like it... ok. That's your right but I also think you are wrong. As for a school that is plain... let me ask you where you would rather work. I know as a student if I went into a school that was as blah as you are describing I would not be very interested in learning. Secondly and most importantly if I had to learn in a tightly clustered classroom with no room, out of date equipment and lab space, and heating and air that rarely worked I would struggle. Lets do the right thing and pass the bond... JMHO

goldlizard 1 year, 7 months ago on Wa-Hi needs work, but not $70 million worth

I'm not a rich man by any sense. I'm voting yes because the need is there. Will it stretch my budget? Yes. Will it be easy? No. Does it need to happen? Yes. Take a tour of WaHi and you will see that it needs to get done. It especially is important when looking at the technology needs and science building needs. The comment about the portables is valid. Right now WaHi has 15 classrooms in portables. If they have 20 kids in each class, they have more than that by the way, you are looking at 300 students they need to put back into WaHi classrooms. The numbers will be very close to the number of students leaving for College Place. As it is space is limited. Adding space matters. Adding Technology Matters. Finally the kids of Walla Walla matter. As for me and my friends and family we are voting yes because it is the right thing to do.

Listen I am as conservative as they come and I hate to give my hard earned money to anyone, especially the government or any department they have under their control... Check my previous comments on this site and you'll see... I've been around WaHi for a couple years now. I have had family graduate from there and have family attending there. I have two boys 5 and 1. I've been in the classrooms and have worked inside the buildings. I'm telling you as honestly as I can that this school needs the remodel done... Period. It does not meet the needs of the students anymore, especially with the technology demands that are increasing every year. We are putting our kids in the hole. The heat and Air don't work, the technology is not up to snuff by a long shot, and the different departments are doing their best McGyvering to get the job done with really old facilities. The record of our teachers here in the valley is a good one. I have never worked with a more devoted group of people in my life. Drive by WaHi at night and see how many teachers are putting in extra hours. Ask a teacher how much of their own money they spend every year on their students. Our population is changing, needs are changing, Standards are changing and we are busting our rears to stay ahead and be the leaders we always have been in the state. If you want a comparison look at our school compared to Pasco or other schools with our population. The sad thing is... we could be sooo much better with the remodel and the proper facilities. We need this remodel to best serve the kids here. I don't rent, I pay a mortgage like most of you and I'm voting yes because I know the need is real. I also know that right now we get the best bang for our buck! If you come and see the school and really look at the issue... you'll do the same. JMHO.

goldlizard 1 year, 7 months ago on Sales of AR-style rifles, ammo spike up

Again your an idiot. The Musket was the top of line military firearm at the time. Our founding fathers wanted to make sure that ordinary people could rise up and take care of a government that didn't do its job of representing the people. You would be considered a good NAZI Peggy during the late 20's and 30's. They thought the same way you did. The government would take care of them and knew what was best. Trust them...(Unless you were a Jew, Gypsie, etc...)
