Golden Age Pass no longer honored

On Jan. 6, Mark Clemmens tried to use his Mid-Valley League Athletic Golden Age Pass to go to his grandson's wrestling match. The Golden Age Pass states that this card entitles the bearer to free admission to all Mid-Valley League athletic events, except tournaments, for the rest of their natural life. It is in appreciation of their years of support of the public schools in our Valley. Not transferable.

Mr. William A. Daley, athletic director at Sunnyside High School, did not accept the Golden Age Pass for entry to the wrestling match.

(Editor's note: Bill Daley was contacted and explained the Washington State Auditor's Office has ruled the Golden Age Passes are an illegal use of public funds. Those who have the passes can purchase a special pass to attend all Mid-Valley League regular season sporting events for a nominal fee of just $5 each year.)

New Year’s Day kindness much appreciated

All of us who belong to the Senior Center here in Sunnyside wish to thank Bill and Velda Crane and Ernie Blaine for going overboard for us at the center on New Year's Day. What hard workers they are, always.

They mixed and baked us all wonderful waffles. With them we had syrup, bacon and eggs, ham and sausage and plenty of coffee, milk and orange juice. It was truly a happy New Year.

Everyone who contributed the rest of the fare, we give thanks also. The ones who worked in the kitchen, including Ellen Bird, we are grateful for their help and kindness.

Snow was falling softly as we left for home. What more could we ask for on a great New Year's Day? What a treat!

Thanks for Christmas, too.

/s/ Bernice Seward, Sunnyside
