paco1234 3 weeks, 2 days ago on Letter - Anti-gun cartel works to disarm Americans

Curtis, I respect your passion in protecting your guns. However you need to review the meaning of "cartel". We are liberals are legally organized and we lobby for gun safety legislation following all organizational laws protecting our rights to do so. By following the democratic process we liberals are far from being a "cartel" with the meaning you inappropriately posit.

There is no secret conspiracy to take guns away from anyone. You and I, a conservative and a liberal, joined and served in the US military to, amongst many other things, protect the Constitution, including the second amendment, as decided by the Supreme Court. The law is the law, period.

You and I should welcome a vigorous debate based on what we believe, but we must follow the democratic process, setting aside the usual fear mongering from both sides. Let's vote and let's respect the results!

I guess what is left is to thank you for supporting one of our local industries. By the way, I hope you meant to say deprived and not depraved! Coming from you I take no offence either way.

"After more than a decade of raising GOATS and sheep and selling cheese from their farmstead outside of Dayton, Monteillet Fromagerie owners Joan and Pierre-Louis Monteillet never dreamed they might be in violation of county ordinances"

I doubt you've ever seen "the goat farm" as it is known in Dayton.

The Monteillets should be encouraged to promote their business, not to discouraged them with unnecessary harassments!

They treat their goats better than some families treat their children. No KID abuse here...!

You just don't cook with expensive, gourmet cheeses, namvet. I suspect you've never been to Dayton, let alone to Monteillet Fromagerie.

Mike was my friend. We attended many Rotary meetings together, was always willing to help others at all times without exeptions. He had enough friends to give him a dignified, honorable farewell.

A CASE FOR MILL CREEK BRIDGES

Back in 1958 I was doing my US Air Force basic training in San Antonio. The River Walk was just an idilic park. No hotels or restaurants were around, just trails, trees and flower beds. Since then I've been to San Antonio River Walk many times, and saw it evolved to what is now a first class tourist destination.

When I came to Walla Walla back in 1989, one of my first memories was that of the River Walk in San Antonio, and the idea of a similar project for Walla Walla dawn on me. But what I payed most attention, as a more feasible project, was to restoration and beautification of the multiple bridges over Mill Creek. There are quite charming views and perspective from such bridges, some of them with picturesque foliage and interesting walls.

To make it a community project I envisioned private enterprises "adopting" a bridge by submitting a design, including financial support to a designated committee for selection. The creek borders and walls could be equally "landscaped" with planters, etc.

As we now have posters with Walla Walla Churches, we could possible design others with "Walla Walla Bridges" as guide for tourists and local citizens to visit and enjoy.

We are lucky to have so many talented artistic and generous people capable of wonderful suggestions for such a project.

"Dear God, Please help us". That's what you said in 2008 and 2012. Obama won, not once but twice. Roberta dear, I believe God did not listened to you! He did listened to us liberals, not once but twice!

You need to pray harder...or give up!
