Tri-City officials are happy because the Mid-Columbia Conference will be getting another 3A competitor. Hermiston officials are happy because their athletes won't be living on a bus for 3 weeks out of the year. Hermiston will become the first out-of-state school to ever join the WIAA and compete in Washington sports.
By a percentage of 42 yes, but 58 no, Hermiston voters have rejected a $104 million dollar bond that would have corrected significant overcrowding problems in the city's grade schools, and other logistical issues.
All the necessary pieces appear to be in place, now it's likely just up to the OSAA (Oregon Schools Activities Association) to determine if Hermiston will move North sports-wise and join the Mid Columbia Conference.
Authorities are hoping area video surveillance footage will help them figure out what happened. But a 55-year-old man is dead after a collision with a semi-truck at Highway 395 and Elm Streets Monday night.
