Poll: Today's Live Poll
  • Walla Walla picking on Bend is upsetting and childish. Bend has been handed expansion and in a short amount of time tried to put things in place like new building laws and government to try to keep things in check. Rather than pointing at us, perhaps they should focus on their own issues. We will take care of us and ours. They can do the same for theirs.

  • I have to say, this was a fantastic editorial. Richard said everything we've all been thinking and feeling. His impressions are right on and the verbage he used to express them perfect. Thank you for such an insightful and well-written piece. Jason Leary

  • Your premise is faulty: The "Don't Bend Walla Walla" campaign isn't about _blaming_ Bend (even though there is a Bend developer involved in attempts to despoil their community), but to keep it from _becoming_ like Bend. I agree that it'll be hard to avoid, unfortunately, but they do have an actual four-year college going for them and an industrial base that's not based on fluff. They also have journalists that are from Walla Walla working there -- unlike central Oregon, apparently.

  • I'm replying to Mr. Gadfly's comment. He says that Bend's industrial base is based on fluff? Excuse me while I finish laughing. Perhaps he's been sitting too long on his fluffy couch, not enjoying everything Bend has to offer.....a couch potato perhaps? Or perhaps spending too much time reading the newspaper of a nearby town...a town he dreams of living in. You missed the point, pal! Those bumper stickers are offensive to all residents of Bend! Why not say, "Keep Walla Walla Small Town"? And your last comment.....no comment.......I won't stoop to your level!

  • I am from Walla Walla and I agree with this website. Our town is being a bug bunch of babies! We need this expansion, we need new things in this town so we don't have to keep driving 40-50 miles away to find things that are town does not have!
