Please allow at least three business days before anticipated publication. 


Blood donations needed

The Red Cross is facing a shortage of blood donations right now due to winter weather, seasonal illnesses and a busy holiday schedule. The next blood drive is scheduled for tomorrow from noon to 6 p.m. at the Walla Walla Presbyterian Church. Find more opportunities to give blood locally.
