“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.

Commissioners misguided on access fees

Is Grays Harbor going to cut off its nose to spite its face? Do the county commissioners really think they can “force” Weyerhauser to keep their land open? This is private land — they can close the gates at any time. They are no different than any other private landowner.

Change? Not this time

I worked in Victim Advocacy Services in Pacific County beginning in 1999 until very recently. I have worked with many — I estimate more than 12 — deputy prosecutors, give or take a few, during that time.

At tank farms, no need for big employee parking lots

In the Saturday, June 28, issue of The Daily World , Mark Reisman asks us to “measure the risk and find a way to make oil work here.” He builds his argument on the foundation that the Harbor’s “economic and social decline” will be reversed through capital investment in “the oil transportation opportunity.” That foundation is as unstable as the mud flats where the oil storage tanks are to be built.

A happy ending

My family and I owe a debt of gratitude to all the dedicated personnel involved in the search and rescue of my wife Karen Grygorcewicz, who was lost in the woods in McCleary recently.
