Letters

Response to a response

It turns out that Mayor Vini Samuel did respond to my Letter to the Editor dated 4/28/16. However, she posted it to her personal Facebook page for only her friends to see. A friend of mine found it and forwarded it to me. Here is her letter:

Bengazi

In thinking about the Bengazi murder of four Americans, I thought about King David, Bathsheba and Uriah. I still don’t understand way the requests for additional security by our Ambassador in August before Sept. 11 was turned down all three times.

Lauding Gordon

Many residents on the lower Wishkah Road have worked diligently, patiently and with firm hope that the Wishkah Road, from milepost 2.2 to 2.7 would have flood mitigation through the Chehalis River Basin Flood Authority.

Part-time commissioners?

I was glad to read in the paper that the county now has enough money to pay some property owner at least $70,000 more than his property was worth. Eminent domain laws were written just to protect taxpayers from this sort of huge over payment.

Your primary vote is important

Please vote in the May 24 presidential primary. It will cost you mere pennies and take mere minutes away from your busy life. Even though individual political parties may use a caucus to choose their candidate, The Revised Code of Washington Chapter 29A.56.010 addresses the reason to have a statewide primary.
 

Supporting Ayers

Ken Ayers has been purchasing auto parts from my business, Borden’s Auto Parts, for the past three years. In this time I have developed a great working relationship with Ken. He has always treated me honestly, fair and ethically.

PUD rates

In case you haven’t noticed, we got ourselves three wily PUD commissioners. Using the numbers from my March 2016 bill, their proposed straight-line 7.5 cents per kilowatt hour rate system would have raised my bill by 14.66 percent. It’s a good thing that they agreed to raise it only 11.46 percent!

Grays Harbor mayor’s prayer breakfast

The last two years I have been privileged to serve as the co-chair of the Governor’s prayer breakfast in Olympia. This is an event that has been happening since 1941, when then Gov. Langley instituted the first one. Washington was the first state ever to do this.

Gender pay gap doesn’t hold up under scrutiny

T knew eventually this day would come, a day when a journalist in a mainstream publication would have enough courage to write a piece exposing the wage gap myth for the lie that it is despite the overwhelming de facto left-wing censorship that is political correctness. The piece I’m referring to is, “The persistent myth of the gender wage gap and what’s behind it” written by Fort Worth Star-Telegram columnist Cynthia M. Allen and appearing in

Thank-you letters

We were shopping at Wal-Mart March 25 for memorial services items, explaining to the cashier that my son-in-law had passed away from brain cancer. A wonderful person behind us named “Chris” offered to pay for our entire purchase!

Hoquiam EMS levy

Each year for the past several years, the Hoquiam Fire Department has experienced a steady increase in emergency calls. 2015 was no exception as we received over 3,000 calls for help. Of these, 2,835 were requests for an ambulance.
