Better signage to the existing parking is what this community needs. I lived here a year before I knew the parking lot behind Macy's was public b/c the sign is only a foot tall and behind a tree
Congrats on the restoration and all of your hard work!
When walking the dog the other day I passed this building, surprised it has a tenant, and quickly had my face pressed to the glass. The dresses are so beautiful! I was crushed when the Purple Parasol closed because it added a fun window display in a line of wine tasting rooms and restaurants.
Please offer sewing/design classes!
Vote Yes on I-522. I like knowing what is in my food. That's what ingredient lists are for. Food that is Kosher is labeled. Food that is organic is labeled. Every food (I am not counting alcohol as a food) has nutrition and ingredient labels. (Gosh, that must have been soooooo expensive, I can't believe there is even still food in groceries stores. All of that nutrition and ingredient labeling must have bankrupted the universe!) Fruit has labels that tell the purchaser where the product was grown. There are labels about ingredients or manufacturing process which cause contamination and are a risk for common food allergy sufferers. I am not allergic to eggs or peanuts or dairy and do not begrudge those that are that labeling on food packaging.
Knowledge is not bad. I would like to know what food I eat contains, and that included GMO ingredients. My family is from Delaware which is the home of DuPont. Family and friends of mine are employed by them. Dupont is one of the top 3 for genetically modified crop seed. I am not trying to shut them down. I simply want to know what my food is made of.
And please don't call me ignorant or uninformed since I worked for USDA with the very turkey breed that was so selectively bread that it cannot walk or mate b/c it grows so big and ungainly. It is the very turkey breed that you probably eat for Thanksgiving. Science can do plenty of awful things without the aid of genetic engineering.
I wish City Police would do that here in Walla. You don't even have to ticket... at least stop the cyclists that are breaking the law and make them aware of what the rules are. So many cyclists downtown are riding on the sidewalk, riding the wrong way down the street, etc. They are being stupid and dangerous and I pity the motorist that will eventually hit one of them.
"Lohrmann said he doesn’t want to “destroy the relationship” between Hackney and his daughter"
Is the judge high? Doesn't trying to kill your kid already destroy your relationship with them? Why don't you just admit that the prisons are over crowded or you think the conviction will be overturned instead of spewing that bs.
Given the side walks are in the public right of way the City should pay for their installation or repair. Just the same as with roads. I know what the code says, but that's my opinion. Good access is good business. It frustrates me that in many places the sidewalks in the city, around the YWMC for an example, are not handicap accessible.
Everyone, please contact the MPO and obtain their sidewalk survey packet.

Additionally, the city must address unsafe sidewalk areas that are brought to their attention. In writing is always the best. You can also call City Public Works at 527-4463. You can also submit through ETrakit's Citizen Response Management, that way there is an electronic file automatically created http://epay.ci.walla-walla.wa.us:8080/etrakit/CRM/issue.aspx
If enough citizens present enough information hopefully the sidewalk situation will improve.
The only grocery costs would be those that the corporations feel like imposing on customers as petty punishment for being regulated. Yes, there will be regulatory costs, but those are costs I would be completely willing to pay.
"Before voting, Dozier said he is struggling with the issue of the county providing a public access point for the drug on one hand while simultaneously taxing people to fund substance abuse treatment for problems it might cause."
Are you kidding? People are making money on wine here hand over fist. Pretty sure that alcohol abuse exists. Deaths from drunk driving still exist. No one is screaming and crying about putting Walla Walla wine in people's hands. But pot? Omg! Not that! anything but that. Also pretty sure you can get cigarettes at any gas station or supermarket. Lung cancer is the 2nd most common type of cancer. Treatments cost tax payers millions of dollars a year and we tax cigs heavily, laughing all the way to the bank..And potato chips ---- fat clogs arteries, yes? Heart disease is a #1 killer.
You've already had a year to think about these laws. Now you want another year? Did you wake up yesterday and remember that you had to make a decision about this out of the blue? Y'all are a joke.
That is the most wonderful story. Here's to all of y'all involved in it.
