Nonstop talkers take a toll on those stuck listening

Dear Abby: I have noticed that some people in my age group (60s) are becoming compulsive talkers. These people don’t ask questions of those around them. When someone begins to speak, the compulsive talker interrupts, usually in a louder voice and returns to dominating the conversation. Some of them continue to ramble on even when no one is listening anymore.

Moira Smiley and VOCO at Bishop Center Sunday

Coming to Grays Harbor College’s Bishop Center Sunday evening, April 26, will be the unique vocal and instrumental sounds of Moira Smiley and VOCO, recently named the No. 1 a cappella group in the U.S. The performance, which combines the energy of street singing with the mellowness of folk songs, begins at 7 p.m. The show is sponsored by Bruce and Bette Worth, WESTAF and the National Endowment for the Arts.

There are still a few spots left for the EDventure to Oysterville this weekend.
