Wear Red for Ed and Support Prosser Teachers are the logos for the recent teachers negotiations.  On Friday ninety-eight percent of teachers voted in favor of the strike which will start Sept. 8. Teachers decided on that date in order to give parents and the school district proper time to prepare for the strike.

Sunday another negotiation meeting began at 4:15 p.m.Though both parties continue to "bargain in good faith," said Fred Brey, President of the PEA, they have been unable to make an agreement.  It has been 12 years since the contract between teachers and the district has been negotiated. They met again Monday at 1 p.m. to continue talks.

Oly Olsen will be Grand Marshall of the 90th States Day Parade in Prosser.    "I was stunned!  My first thought was…. why?  There are so many others more deserving than me.  That being said, if it is true, I am thrilled.  Humbly honored! Blow my mind, I have never been Grand Marshall," said Olsen. 
Olsen is a Prosserite through and through.  His grandparents came to Prosser in 1908.  Olsen's father, Ralph was the result of their happy union.  His grandpa used to talk about having had "America Fever".  The Olsen family came to America, looking for a better life; one filled with opportunity.
