Higher education’s the big winner in Olympia

​Yakima Herald Republic

At long last, it’s sine die for the legislative session that wouldn’t die. Washington lawmakers adjourned Friday in Olympia after a regular session and three special sessions that addressed — eventually — a number of immediate challenges. These included efforts to meet a state Supreme Court mandate on K-12 education funding and a gas-tax increase to fund extensive transportation projects.

But the biggest winner remains higher education, which that took a beating in the past decade as the national economic recession eroded government revenues. Since 2008, the Legislature had cut higher-ed budgets by about 60 percent, and colleges and universities covered the losses by raising tuition.

​After playing for three colleges in four years, outfielder Reid Martinez is finally 

Daily Record 

Reid Martinez found out that everything happens for a reason.

The junior outfielder will be playing in his first official season at Central Washington University in spring of 2016, but it came after making a few stops along the way.

Martinez suited up for three different college teams over the past four seasons, and even saw his career come to a halt when he injured his hand. ​

Now, he returns to Ellensburg to get his degree and play his final two years of eligibility on the baseball diamond. 

Martinez played at Roosevelt High School in Seattle. After graduating, he attended Yakima Valley Community College to start his college baseball career.

During his freshman season with the Yaks, he played in all 26 games, hitting .339 with 23 RBIs and four stolen bases.
