Restaurant Inspections, April & May 2016

Grays Harbor County’s Environmental Health Division lists restaurants and other food-handling establishments that received red and/or blue points, as well as those that didn’t receive any points.

Blue points are primarily for maintenance and sanitation issues that are not likely to result in food-borne illness. A facility found with 20 or more red points is subject to a follow-up inspection. Blue violations should be corrected immediately when possible, but generally do not impose an immediate risk to the public.

Stensager, Messmer to be honored with Pioneer Award on Sunday

Gene Stensager and Lou Messmer have both been instrumental in the development of Grays Harbor College. Although their fields of study differed — Stensager in music and Messmer in life sciences — as pioneering instructors at Grays Harbor College, the pair seemed a natural fit to share this year’s award as the Polson Museum’s Pioneers of the Year.
