Swimming pool may be moved back to the front burner

By Richard Burger
A small group of Grandview residents have begun efforts aimed at replacing the aging Grandview swimming pool with a new facility.
Last week Tony Cromwell and Caroline Vining spoke briefly at the Grandview School Board meeting and the City Council meeting to gin up support for the formation of a committee which will promote passage of a bond to build a new pool.
"(The pool) is an important part of the City of Grandview," Vining told the Council. "We're going to keep fighting until it happens."

Those who might enjoy getting all ghouled up and having some monster fun in the annual Grandview Haunted House should show up at the actor auditions Oct. 25.
Haunted House creator and supervisor Lonnie Hendrickson said the auditions will begin at noon, at the site of the attraction, 135 Division St.
Youth and adults are encouraged to try out for a role.
Hendrickson said he is especially hopeful that the event will attract big crowds, since it opens on Halloween this year, Friday Oct. 31.

School Supt. anticipates 'legislative session for the ages' for school funding
By Richard Burger
The landscape of public education funding in Washington State may be changed for years to come by the deliberations during the 2015 session of the state legislature.
That is the belief of Grandview School Superintendent Kevin Chase, who addressed the Grandview Rotary Club last week.
He characterized the coming session as "The legislative session for the ages."
The state's highest court has ruled that the Legislature is failing in its "paramount duty," as defined by the Washington Constitution, which is to provide for basic education for grades kindergarten through 12. 

We expected the Grandview 'Our Town' to be in this edition of the Grandview Herald paper. Due to a glitch at the press it did not get inserted into this week's paper. It will be in the October 29th edition of the Grandview Herald. We apologize for any inconvenience this may have caused. Thank you for your understanding.
