The News Hour – October 2, 2009

Andy Jobanek

This week we discussed Whitman’s annual security report and talked with George Bridges about the increased numbers of forcible rapes, according to the report. We also talked to Ariel Ruiz of Club Latino about the Dream Act Educational Forum he organized this past Sunday. We also previewed a couple agenda items for the Walla Walla City Council’s October 14th meeting. On that list were the possible resolution to oppose the passage of Initiative 1033 within Washington State and the council’s Infrastructure Sustainability plan that will fix sewer and water lines that currently leak 25 percent of Walla Walla’s processed water. In sports, we reported on the ski team’s troubles transitioning to a club team and talked to John Hein about the Northwest Women’s Tennis Championships in McMinnville, Ore. this past weekend. In A&E, we talked about the cut of the Walt Whitman lecture and Andrew Hall gave us a review of The Dodos’ Time to Die. Recorded on Friday, Oct. 2.
