Justice in Motion — Superior Court judicial vacancies

As many have heard, the Honorable Gordon Godfrey, one of the three Grays Harbor County Superior Court judges, recently submitted his resignation, effective Oct. 1, 2014.

Build a better potato salad

Potato salad belongs to summer. It’s forever been a sturdy supporting player for burgers and hot dogs, steaks and seafood. It deserves to have a starring role. That’s right. It’s time to move beyond the potato salad recipe you’ve been cranking out for a dozen (or more) years. It’s time to build a better potato salad. Where to begin? Cookbooks have tons of ideas.
