Dear Abby: I have been divorced for more than a year and recently started dating a very nice man, “John.” My eldest daughter and her children live with me.

There was no room on the meeting table to put their year-end, celebratory bottle of wine. The 12 members of the Polson Museum board and a few volunteers peered at the 20 Elton Bennett prints laid on the meeting table, with more propped up against the walls of the museum meeting room last Wednesday evening. The prints were all variations of the “Driftwood Fire” series and have been donated to the Polson Museum by the artist’s daughter, Barbara Bennett Parsons. Bennett Parsons has more than 170 different titles, each with multiple variations, that she plans to donate to the museum, one or more titles each year.

Dear Abby: My husband works, but I do not. I stay very busy, but he expects me to pack him a lunch every day. It must include a breakfast item and a lunch item, as he is starving by the time he arrives at work, even if he ate at home.
Historically, one of largest immigrant populations in Aberdeen were those who came from Finland. Until 1917, Finland was a part of Czarist Russia. In the early 1900s, to avoid conscription into the Czar’s army, thousands of young Finns fled to the United States and hundreds of them came to Grays Harbor. The Finns, a clannish people, created two distinct “Finntowns”: One in South Aberdeen west of Boone Street; and the second that ran on each side of the Wishkah River from roughly the Wishkah River Bridge to the North Aberdeen Bridge. While most Finns were industrious, providing much-needed labor and economic benefits to their new hometown, there were those who spent a large amount of their time in the local saloons, creating headaches for the Aberdeen police department. Here are a number of stories published by the Aberdeen Herald covering the antics of dissolute Finns.
