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.

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.

Thanks to Comcast

On behalf of the board and staff at Grays Harbor Historical Seaport, we would like to express our gratitude to Comcast, local Comcast employees and their families, and the GHHSA volunteers who turned out for Comcast Cares Day at Seaport Landing on April 26.

High cost of hunting

My husband, Leonard, and I have enjoyed the fishing and hunting here in the state of Washington. We are 73 and 74 years of age and I am disabled. This is an important food source for us.

Not if, but when

I grew up in Aberdeen and Hoquiam and graduated from Hoquiam High School. I now live in Vancouver, Wash. where I am protesting with many other Vancouver residents against a proposed oil terminal at the Port of Vancouver.
