This weekend, Prosser becomes the Mid-Valley Swim league center of the universe.
Six teams, plus Prosser, will be in town for the Mid-Valley League championships held at the Prosser Aquatic Center starting on July 31 and ending Aug. 2nd.
The Prosser Swim Team President, Jon Cox said the planning for the championships took about one year to get organized.

This is the other one.  This one is the story of a shy, aspiring writer from the Midwest who goes to New York in search of fame and fortune. Once he gets to the big city, life becomes a series of hilarious encounters with the unpredictable residents of his dilapidated apartment house.
Director Rex Olsen retired in 2012 as the drama coach at Kamiakin High School in Kennewick; he has also directed plays at Richland Players. "Mixed Nuts" is his directorial debut with Valley Theatre Company (VTC). Mari Page is the producer.
