scottyr 4 days, 21 hours ago on Targeting family for parents’ old debts ridiculous

Ignoring or refusing to pay a tax obligation would seem a serious offense against those who pay their share. But, the game of paying taxes has always been represented as an indiviual obligation.
If you want a real eye-opening look at just who heads the list of tax-payer deadbeats, go to the Washington State Department of Revenue web site and access the section that lists licensed business interests in this state who are tax delinquent. Be sure and have a calculator on hand, the amounts are staggering.

scottyr 3 weeks, 6 days ago on Walla Walla Valley wine legends tell tales of early days

What a nice tribute to the Valley's Legends. Growing up in Walla Walla you just knew it's residents were honest and focused folks who could grow and develop superior products of the soil.
The Valley's respected reputation at the markets for wine, onions, strawberries, corn, cattle, wheat, peas, and a host of others is what we're about.
No matter what you believe about the power of economic markets, remember first that, "Man owes his very existence to about six inches of top soil and the fact that it rains." Way to go Walla Walla. Scotty Ray

But, I'll bet the inconvenient truth of Legislators who claim to be underpaid for the amount of time the job consumes is, the bulk of that time consumed is attending social and smoke-filled room sessions to seek or satisfy their political donation benefactors?

scottyr 10 months, 2 weeks ago on Study: Build new Lincoln High on current WW site

I would think that the Lincoln School committee decision to rebuild is an act of laziness. Many of the Valley's now and former residents were educated in those historical buildings; (yep, I'm one of them). Can't say location or lack of modern surrounding got in the way.
Our historical link with architect Henry Ostermann needs to be preserved.
The Lincoln School committee needs to explore and redefine their mission in a way that enhances and preserves the Valley's legacy. No, we don't need a education facility with a Starbucks or Amazon motif.

Hummm, Tom, how about we reinstate the requirement to start every educational class in the country with the Pledge of Allegiance? Oh, I forgot. That's not politically correct in a democracy. Well, I guess we are a nation of the cultually insane.
