Letter: Name game

March 11, 2014 

If the residents of West Richland wish to distance themselves from Richland by changing the town's name, i suggest they choose the name that their area was originally called -- Enterprise, if I remember correctly.

Of course, some will say that there is an Enterprise, Ore., and there is. There is also a Richland, Ore.

It just seems that a little rememberance and recognition of the early settlers would be the proper way to go. If this were to happen, maybe those who moved to West Richland from Richland and other areas would feel a little more independent.
