The prosser article interested me. I could not believe that people would admit they needed low income housing but not want it due to property values, this is obsurd to me

I agree with stephanie, if it is needed why not, so many people are out on the street because there isnt enough housing. How can people from higher incomes be so selfish! Also the parent nights that help parents educate their children i think thats a good thing because it will give them a better insight on how to raise their children.

I think that our valley needs all the help they can get. Its crazy to think after telling people you need help financially and not accept it after its offered, is crazy. Also having more parents involved in thier childrens education will help out tremendously.

Yeah, i think if they are willing to admit that they need low-income housing, why not accept the help they are offered, rather than saying "Not here".

I wrote about the "Immigrant Parents Learn" article in my paper without even looking at this article first. This is exactly the kind of thing that needs to be more readily available throughout the yakima valley. This kind of program would be helpful especially with high attendance. Concerning E-Verify, I completely agree with Dave Ettl, It is a flawed system, but we are moving in the right direction. I do not think that any everyone should be able to look up specific persons to be able to find out about their legal status, but employers in certain circumstances should be allowed to use it when it has certain applications regarding insurance, and legal standards of the work place.

I also agree with Stephanie. Its obscured for people to say, we need it, but not in my back yard. If they don't want it in their backyard, they should work on fixing it themselves.

I thought the prosser article was interesting too. I think that rich people need to be less selfish and help people out. There are more people in the world than we realize who need help. Low income housing is a good idea but with the economy today people are out to save themselves and don't tend to look at others.

I think that they are being a little bit hypocritical by saying we need it but not in my back yard. This is just confusing but this is how America is getting!

Its kinda funny that the people in prosser did that, i thought the acronym you used was good.
