Our partner for the Community Conversation program — the Benton Franklin Dispute Resolution Center — will provide a moderator to ensure everyone gets a chance to contribute.

The meeting is from 6 to 8 p.m. Jan. 28 at the Herald’s Columbia River Room in Kennewick. If you’d like to participate, send a note via e-mail to or call Chris Sivula at 582-1538. Deadline to apply is Jan. 25.
