Washington Voices

Voices are merging into one

Starting today, the North, South and West Plains Voices are combined into one section – The Voice.

Most readers will notice few changes. The shift will put all your neighborhood news in one section.

We’re keeping most of your favorite content, such as the Front Porch, gardening, Landmarks and school news, and we’ve added some new features: follow the Voices on Facebook, and check out the Hillyard, South Perry and Valley blogs online. We’re also adding Cool Kid feature, so please suggest interesting kids for short profiles by sending an e-mail to

And look for a special Voices website launch this spring.

The Valley Voice will continue its publication schedule on Thursday and Saturday.

As always, we welcome your neighborhood news tips. E-mail story ideas to or call editor Jeff Jordan at (509) 927-2170 or reporter Pia Hallenberg at (509) 459-5427.
