By Mai Hoang Once in a while, Yakima Air Terminal officials receive calls from nearby residents complaining that the airport is too close to the city's residential areas. Such calls make longtime assistant airport manager Jerry Kilpatrick chuckle. "When the airport was built, we were three miles from town," he said. When the airport opened in 1928, the area was a large hunk of sagebrush. Over the past 80 years, the airport has grown along with the Valley it serves, going from 80...

Todnem is a dial-up Internet subscriber, and she sees no need to change. She can use it to conduct business as an agent for Farmers Insurance, check e-mail, check her family's Web page, do research and shop for shoes. Her friends know not to send her photos or anything that takes a long time to...

By Mai Hoang, Yakima Herald-Republic, Wash. Jun. 26--Delta officials plan to reinstate the flight July 7, only to pull it back out of operation Aug. 18. The flight was taken out of operation for the second time this year May 1. The latest announcement is irritating to Yakima airport manager Buck Taylor.
