"We had a great conversation about what Prosser had to offer and ordinances they would be subject to," said City Planner Steve Zetz. "It was a positive meeting and they were pleased with what we could do. They looked at the land and began the process of purchasing the (Chardonnay Boulevard) site."

Mysterious aircraft visit Prosser
By Record-Bulletin Staff
The call came at 10 a.m. on Thursday. The concerned citizen said that they heard the sound of an engine over their home on Wednesday night. Things in their home began to shake and rattle on the shelves and then their windows began to shake. They ran outside, looked up and saw green lights shaped like a figure eight laying on its side (or the infinity sign). There were no lights on the front or sides of the aircraft. The caller said that they didn't want to call it a UFO.
The other call came in a bit later, also stating that the same experience happened to them only it had been for the last three nights beginning on Monday.
