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.
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.
Without children the human race would end. Every generation is renewed as children take their places in adult society. Growing to maturity through the vulnerable years of life is risky business. Children are dependent upon people who are older and more mature than them to meet their basic needs, including safety, nutrition, shelter, clothing, supervision, education, the development of social skills, comfort, a sense of who they are and coping skills. These are some of the things that are vital to the development of children.
I am very appreciative of all of the articles on the 50th anniversary of the assassination of JFK in Thursday’s newspaper. It brings back many memories for me as it was my 24th birthday.
I think I see a way past this county prosecutor’s office mess. The Democrats want Katie Svoboda, a good Democrat. Some other folks want Mike Spencer, who they think isn’t as good a Democrat. The county commissioners, who are supposed to fill the vacancy by appointment, don’t know who they want so they picked Vini Samuel, who doesn’t want them, or the job. It’s quite the muddle.
For many years, Christmas for Kids in Grays Harbor has provided gifts to those kids who otherwise may not have had a Christmas. Not much; a piece of clothing, a toy, a book or a game. Our dedicated volunteers can get this for under $10 per child, and it’s done for more ethan 1,000 kids per year. This year, funds are a little short. So if you think that it is a shame for a kid not to have a Christmas, then please consider sending some help to: Christmas for Kids in Grays Harbor, 1800 Coolidge Road, Aberdeen, WA 98520.
Congressmen, the media nor the U.S. Government will get involved in tribal politics. What is our recourse? Our General Council voted on and approved an Elders Per Capita and our president and business committee failed to comply. They made a “Paddle” their priority over their elders.
I don’t know if this letter will even reach the individuals it was intended for, but I felt it necessary to at least try.
The family of Gary Brumfield would like to take this opportunity to thank all of our family and friends for their outpouring support during our recent loss. For all the cards, floral arrangements and donations in Gary’s name; we are so appreciative. A special thanks to Pat, Judy, Georgieanne, Toni and Anne Marie for all their hard work organizing the celebration of life. Our love and appreciation to all of you.
I would like to thank the voters for passing the G.H. Transit bill. There are many of us who depend on the bus for medical, shopping and some for church and just being able to get out. Some of us are elderly, and handicapped and do not drive to get where we need to go. I’m sorry that the board members are not for it. But they do not have to worry, they have the means and money to get where they need to go.
The Grays Harbor/Pacific-Thurston Senior Companion Program volunteers and friends express their thanks and appreciation to the community for supporting the 27th annual “Not-So-Haunted House” project for children. This event was made possible through the generous support from the following businesses: Aberdeen Wal-Mart, Coleman’s Mortuary, Grays Harbor-Pacific, Great Northwest Federal Credit Union, The Bank of the Pacific, Timberland Bank and local area dentists.
In reading your front page article on the most recent oil train derailment and explosion, I couldn’t help but notice the absence of a few key words. “Steep hill” “62 mph” and “foul play suspected” were nowhere to be seen.
