    Prosser Technical School's Building Trades Class have made a significant contribution to the community and specifically Art in Speed Park.
    Under the direction of Building Trades instructors, Jeff Wimbel and Ron Zimmer the classes of area students designed, built, painted, and delivered massive display boards for use with the inaugural Art in Speed Park Student Art Exhibit.  
    The exhibit will be held in conjunction with the juried show on August 29 and 30. The display will be held in the Speed Memorial Church Recreation building. The student art exhibit will showcase art for West Clark Community Schools elementary, middle school, and high school art students.
    The community partnership with Prosser students also includes Lowe's Building Supply that supplied and delivered supplies at cost.
    Director of Art in Speed Park, Kim Johnson stated that it would have been very difficult to display student work without the cooperation of Prosser and their building trades students. John Guenther, Chairmen of the Student Art Exhibit, remarked that having the contribution of the display boards, will make this a lasting project and the WCCS student art exhibit will be using these fine display boards for years to come.  
    Art in Speed Park would formally like to thank the Prosser students for their efforts. Students involved in the project are: Shelby Anderson, Chris Selter, Randy Johnson, Nick Smith, Nick Curden, Brad Barnett, Michael Bennett, Anthony Everage, and Dylan Helmer. Instructors are Ron Zimmer, and Jeff Wimbel.
    Ron Zimmer, Building Trades Instructor, stated, that his students are always willing to take part in community projects and usually do a fine job.

Public hearing on Land Use Planning process erupts with angry and accusations PDF Print E-mail
Wednesday, 26 August 2009 00:00
    At a Wednesday afternoon, August 19, public hearing on the proposed Comprehensive Land Use Planning (CLUP) process underway in Washington County, opponents to the concept accused elected officials of attempting to usurp their individual property rights.  Some of the opponents even when as far as to say that the concept and those who supported it were “Communist.”
    Jill Saegesser of River Hills Economic Development facilitated the public hearing which is part of the mandated process the county must following in order to develop a county-wide land use plan.  Hoosier Hills is the agency charged with writing a federal grant with a maximum award of $50,000 for the purpose of contracting with a firm to conduct the necessary research and data gathering to develop a plan; the county will be expected to provide a 10% match to the federal grant, if received.  Saegesser emphasized repeatedly that the hearing was specifically to get public input on the grant submission phase of the process.  Several times during the one hour meeting, tangent questions and comments sent the discussion in a different direction, however.
    Saegesser stated several times that the grant application did not mean that zoning was the end goal of the process.  That statement seemed to have little impact on those opponents who were clearly concerned and angry.  Saegesser went on to explain that there is a clear difference between having a plan developed and implementing a plan.  Furthermore, she assured the forty-four attendees that a public hearing would be conducted at every stage of the process and public accessibility to information would always be available.
