hey! happy to see a lot of my sources made it on to the blog. still having a little trouble finding counter-arguments besides the funding for tourism improvements.

A lot more links than I thought there would be...a little difficult to sift through and find the right stuff, but still very helpful. The C-A is kinda hard for this though, besides Yakima being a low income valley for the most part....but I think that's about all tourism writers found....

Wish I would have realized these were up when I was gone. Would have made for a lot more interesting paper.
