Robin Williams, a gift who gave

Recently the nation and the world lost a comic genius — Robin Williams. It seems as word traveled around the globe we all seemed to walk a smaller pace. By that, I mean the news media was not focusing on Gaza, Iran, Iraq or the breakout of ebola. It appeared the television media was covering the life and accomplishments of Robin Williams.

Mayors back Vickie Raines

One of the things we love about Grays Harbor is our small, tight-knit community. We recognize that working together toward our common goals of creating strong, vibrant communities benefits each of our individual cities as well as the county as a whole. We know teamwork makes each community stronger.

Some Harbor help for Miss America candidate?

I would like to thank Grays Harbor for the wonderful support I have received from so many over my years as a contestant in the Miss America Organization. The Miss Grays Harbor Scholarship Program has been an instrumental part of my personal growth, first as Miss Grays Harbor’s Outstanding Teen 2008, then as Miss Grays Harbor 2013. The director, Sue Drolz, has been supportive of my goals even when it led me to Massachusetts, where I now attend graduate school.

No time for due diligence on hospital decision

I was a participant in the League of Women Voter’s forum the night of July 23 at the Log Pavilion, on the “con” side of the panel discussion. My position was mis-characterized in your article published Thursday, July 24. In fact I suspect your reporter left the event well in advance of its conclusion.

“Yes” on hospital

I was born at St. Joseph Hospital in Aberdeen and raised in Montesano. I lived most of my life in Grays Harbor County but three years ago moved to Olympia. I have been employed at Grays Harbor Community Hospital for 17 years.

Commission curiosity

I can’t help but wonder what is going on inside the County Commission that is causing the self-proclaimed “fifth candidate” in the County Commissioners race to be so afraid of a new set of eyes.

Is it Raines’ gender Gordon objects to?

I truly will never lose my faith, hope and charity in The Daily World . You have been my guiding light for too many years, but I was extremely embarrassed and disappointed in the interview published in the July 22 edition with Frank Gordon, written by Steven Friederich, indeed one of my favorite writers.

Coming of age in 1944

The 70-year class reunion of the Weatherwax High School Class of 1944 was celebrated with a luncheon July 24, at the Aberdeen Elks with 17 classmates and 17 guests. The tables were decorated with blue and gold with Flowers by Pollen.

No on hospital

The Grays Harbor Community Hospital levy proposal is so poorly written that for the first time in 30 years as a registered voter I am voting against a vital services levy.

Risk of a failing hospital too great; vote “Yes”

First my disclaimer. I’m Tom Quigg, a real estate broker in Grays Harbor for over 20 years.. The communications officer for Grays Harbor Community Hospital is David Quigg. He is the son of my first cousin. I looked it up, and according to two sources we are “first cousins, once removed.” We don’t socialize and have never discussed hospital operations.

It was a spotless Fifth

The morning following the Fourth of July “Splash” at Morrison park, I stopped at Top Foods to get a cup of coffee and a copy of The Seattle Times . I always go over to the park to enjoy my reading and coffee moment.

Library system likely to work out a deal on tax cap

A recent article in The Daily World mentioned that the Timberland Regional Library budget could experience major impact if Grays Harbor County voters approve a new hospital district. A more likely scenario based on RCW 39.67.010 is that TRL would seek to negotiate with the City of Hoquiam to lessen the financial impact and protect the library’s resources.
