On Tuesday last week at the Convention Center in Kennewick, Mike Anderson was really surprised. "When I saw my daughter, Michaela, I knew something was going on," said Andrews. "The night before Andrews said he had a phone call and they said congratulations but he didn't know why and didn't give it much thought. Another give away was his is best friend, Bruce Prenguber since high school and college, was also at the event.

Shooting on North River Road

By Victoria Walker
On February 10, in the very early morning Benton County Deputies responded to a call on North River Rd about shots fired. 
Prosser PD officer and a Benton County Deputy arrived minutes later. Outside of the residence they found 36-year-old Amy S. Brown, a Prosser resident holding 35-year-old Amanda L. Hill, of Buckley, to her chest.  Hill appeared to have an injury to her chest and had stopped breathing.  Finding no pulse, the deputy and the Prosser officer began CPR until medics arrived who then took over life saving measures, but the Hill died at the scene. 
Protecting Kids from Pornography

By Chuck Walker
Technology has made a seemingly endless selection of images available at the touch of a button or swipe of the face of a phone, regardless of the age of the viewer or ethical appropriateness to the viewer. According to a study: "Exposure to Internet Pornography among Children and Adolescents: A National Survey", CyberPsychology and Behavior, suggests that up to 90% or more youth between 12 and 18 years have access to the Internet. Concern has been raised that this increased accessibility may lead to a rise in pornography seeking among children and adolescents, with potentially serious ramifications for child and adolescent sexual development. This ubiquity seems to have been taken advantage of in the production and distribution of pornography.  Interested in countering that effect, Safeguard Alliance is a volunteer community organization made up of interested citizens dedicated to presenting various topics of concern to the community. Presenting their first public event, as a new organization, they will be featuring an adult only program, "Protecting Kids from Pornography, A Parent's Guide".
