Thanks MR Eskil, I talked with several people who wondered about this so thanks for answering the question. I hope the presence of the Troopers helped with the movement of the windmill parts. And it's good that the windmill people were paying for the service they were receiving.

Oh I didn't see in the letter where Turner got mad at the commissioners for not getting his way. What did turner want from the commission, new vests, oh he got those, new guns, oh he got those, dogs , oh he got those. What was it? Why didn't he call the FBI himself? What are you going to do when Turner gets re elected. I am sure you know what the investigation was about so why don't you share that will us all.

That is what I was thinking stvsngltn, Just a question tinstar, what is the lie? That Tompkins wasn't working on his dryer? but instead his wash machine. Seriously, enlighten me as to what lie you are claiming is made here.

I wish the UB would have a coming out party so all you with goofy names would be identified. If you are deputies, you are shaming your office and profession by your name calling , temper tantrum rants. Why can't you just say my candidate is qualified because of this and that's why I vote for him. Instead of taking a baseball bat to someone who has an opinion why they like their candidate.

Ya Hersey, I was going to say the same thing about tinstar. He is a one sided tinstar for sure. Which is really ok with me, that's what a democracy is all about. But what is not ok is verbally attacking people like he/she does on this site. Calling people names etc.

Just like everything else that seems to be a campaign issue in this race, it's a matter of someones opinion. Gun quality, morale issues, equipment issues, which one is telling the truth, who likes and doesn't like 12 hours shifts, etc, etc, etc. Well it's also another long time deputy supporting the current sheriff, not someone he's worked with for 20 years, that says something. Thank you Amy for letter.

I was just disagreeing with the comment that firefighters have beds and sleep till they get a call. Some people out there believe that. Along with when not sleeping they sit around and play cards. It just isn't that way. I am still trying to keep an open mind about these issues that keep being brought up in the race. Again, I ask what some others have asked, why doesn't the deputy union go back and change it, apparently it's in their contract to revisit the issue if it doesn't work out. I understand, I didn't always agree some decisions in the fire fighters union but it's a democracy and democracy is what rules. I also know that people who love their jobs will not just quit and go someplace else. These guys and ladies have investments in our community , their families live here.

WOW, I would disagree with your statement above and would like to state the facts. Fire departments have regular daily maintenance and duties to perform, fire safety inspections, plus training to accomplish during the day, along with responding to calls for service. It is true that the stations do have beds that allow fire fighters to sleep at night until a call comes in. In Walla Walla, the firefighters weren't allowed in bed before 9 pm. Sometimes they might get 4 or 5 hours of sleep but generally in Walla Walla with the high volume of medical calls it is common to only get an hour or two of sleep while on duty for 24 hours. It varies day to day and night to night depending on call volumes. I grew up on the television show Emergency , but television is usually a long way from reality.
