Climate Change: One graduate’s message

Let us help to change the story of destruction and greed

Commencement Etiquette: It’s a formal event and should be treated that way — for everyone’s sake

More than 1,100 students are graduating from Yamhill County high schools this year. Willamina High, which traditionally opens graduation season, will graduate its 44-member class Saturday. The bulk of the commencement events will follow two weeks later: McMinnville and Newberg, Friday, June 10; Amity, Dayton and Sheridan Saturday, June 11; and Yamhill-Carlton Sunday, June 12.

Congrats, grads: Scholars excel with help in many directions

Commencement ceremonies are less than a week away. Early June is a time both tense and magical as students (and teachers) bear down on the final business of the school year and preparations for the ceremonies themselves.

Memorial Day: ‘We need to think about how to respond’

Organizers and speakers in Monday’s Memorial Day observance struck the right tone with the combination of solemn tribute, history lesson, and community gathering. Children, teens and adults of all ages were involved in the 90-minute event, attended by more than 400 people at Idlewilde Cemetery.
