flag graphic  It's a common refrain among families throughout Eastern Washington: Success for farmworkers means leaving farm work behind. Grandparents immigrated decades ago never intending to stay and never intending to become U.S. citizens. Their children moved north across the border for good, rearing their own American-born children with American values. Now, the great-grandchildren are bound for universities and white-collar jobs. Gonzalo Silva, above, an orchard manager in Tieton, Yakima County, is part of an extended family with roots in Mexico and California, but mostly Washington. His father was one of the first from Pajacuarán to work in the Yakima Valley and has since retired home to Mexico.
