The Port of Grays Harbor’s work to structure the deal to restart that NewWood Satsop facility is simple. Refinance the loan there and acquire the personal property. The Port owns the real estate.
They say to shop locally but what good is it to shop locally when you walk into a shop and all they are doing is either talking among themselves or talking to friends and could care less about other customers.
With all of the clam digging tides that take place every year in Grays Harbor, one would think that the city workers would try and keep the approaches easy to access.
We have reached a new level of political absurdity when the right is mad at the pope and the left wants to anoint his head with oil.
As of Friday, same-sex marriage has been legal in Washington for a year. So the obvious question is: How much worse off is your marriage now that men can marry men and women can marry women?
As a difficult first year of his second term winds down, President Obama is recasting his mission and that of his party. Increasing inequality and decreasing social mobility, he declared in a Dec. 4 address, present “the defining challenge of our time.” Therefore, “making sure our economy works for every working American” would be a central task of his remaining time in office.
Critics of the agreement with Iran concerning its nuclear program are right about most things but wrong about the most important things. They understand the agreement’s manifest and manifold defects and its probable futility. Crucial components of Iran’s nuclear infrastructure remain. U.S. concessions intended to cultivate the Iranian regime’s “moderates” are another version of the fatal conceit that U.S. policy can manipulate other societies. As is the hope that easing economic sanctions will create an Iranian constituency demanding nuclear retreat in exchange for yet more economic relief. Critics are, however, wrong in thinking that any agreement could control Iran’s nuclear aspirations. And what critics consider the agreement’s three worst consequences are actually benefits.
As the government health care website chugs along, the Obama administration has initiated a counter-initiative to combat Republican naysaying — and its weapons are of superior grade.
I want to send my deepest appreciation and thanks to those who voted in our last election. I especially want to thank Ward 4 for their vote of confidence. I hope to represent you with honor and to the best of my ability. Please feel free to contact me at home or work should you need help. I am always available to assist to the best of my capability.
The North Beach VFW Post No 8956 would like to extend a sincere thank you to Exalted Ruler Dan Fajardo, the Officers and members of the Ocean Shores North Beach Elks Lodge No. 2581 for the generous donation they recently made to our Post for use in supporting the needs of our many needy veterans, families, widows and orphans of veterans living in the Ocean Shores community.
North Beach VFW Post 8956 members would like to thank Vince Ianniciello, manager of the local IGA and an amazing Ocean Shores community support person, for allowing us to display our Poppies. Because of the wonderful generosity of IGA and our community, we had a very successful Veterans Day fundraiser.
I would like to thank everyone that took the time to vote in the recent election. In particular, thank you for passing the Ambulance Bond. We will now be able to purchase two new ambulances, which will replace the two older ambulances. This allows us to continue to serve our communities of District 5, Elma, District 12 and McCleary. I would also like to thank you for showing your confidence in me as a Fire Commissioner by re-electing me to office. As a commissioner, I have two main goals: 1) to work within the means of our budget while serving the community, and 2) to find a way to bring the entities of the previously mentioned communities together.
Let’s face it … I owe this column to Loggers Playday.
If you can believe President Obama we have the most uninformed president in history. George Washington was kept better informed by horse back than this one. He knows nothing about anything until we do from the media. Or if that doesn’t work he claims he didn’t say it even though the actual tape of his statements are played side by side.
