Letters to the editor

Letter - Hmmm, Wa-Hi conspiracy?

I’m convinced there is a conspiracy going on with this latest Walla Walla High School bond issue proposal. In fact this conspiracy permeates every corner of the Walla Walla Public Schools. It starts with the School Board and runs through the administration, to the teachers and the support staff. I saw it first when I was a kindergarten student at Green Park. I saw it at Pioneer and at Wa-Hi. I’ve been a willing pawn of this widespread conspiracy for the past 20 years, assisting the past three superintendents to help identify physical plant repair and replacement priorities.

Letter - Will students be brainwashed with scientism?

I’m confident this letter won’t be published given the U-B’s unbridled sycophancy for materialistic scientism; but all views should be heard.

Letter - All of Wa-Hi could be updated for $10 million

The current Walla Walla High School science building has two classrooms updated approximately four or five years ago. These updates allowed these two rooms to be used extensively as computer classrooms.
