Don’t support Cotton for judge

Just pray Jean Cotton doesn’t become the next judge of Grays Harbor County. As guardian ad litem in my petition for guardianship over my father, Jean Cotton did everything she could to make a difficult situation even worse. Without ever presenting any evidence against me, making scurrilous allegations all the way, she ran up a large bill.

“Awful signs of the times”

I am deeply troubled by the fact that our rights, freedoms, laws and privileges are steadily disappearing. Atheistic ideologies rule the day! And anyone daring to stand up for their Christian values soon find themselves dragged into courtrooms, mocked, fined and some jail time “rewarding” their efforts.

Great care

I would like to thank all the Grays Harbor Community Hospital staff that took good care of my mom, Bernice Dewey. My family really appreciated the care. She is doing fine.

Stewart Field concession stand

It is with the utmost thanks that we, the members of the Bobcat Music Boosters and the students of the Aberdeen music programs, express our deepest gratitude and appreciation to the following people for their most kind and generous donations of time, effort and money allowing us to buy and install a concession stand at Stewart Field: Jeff Cook, for his generous donation of $1,000, the Aberdeen Rotary for their generous donation of $4,000, Superintendent Dr. Tom Opstad, Financial Officer David Herrington, Maintenance Supervisor Marv Townsend and Mike Pauley.

A whale of a show

The SeaPals Quilt Guild of Ocean Shores would like to thank the North Beach area for their support of the 21st annual Whale of a Quilt Show. We feel that the quilt show and the Quilt Walk that included many local business, banks, and hotels was a success.

Weigh in on fireworks

If you read the Sept. 9 Daily World you are aware that the Hoquiam City Council is discussing a ban on fireworks. Thanks to the foresight of Councilman Ben Winkelman, we will not be voting on it until the last meeting in October.

Education for everyone

I have been optimistically viewing the State of Washington’s education process. Unfortunately, our tuition rates for higher education have been increasing. The funding process does not meet constitutional standards. The Washington State Supreme Court has now indicated in recent cases that the State of Washington has failed to meet the funding mandate.

Wolf costumes?

Religion has always been an issue in this nation. Some see it as good, some see it as bad. I am a Jesus freak — yes I said it, but I have a few words for the flock that follows the cross, “Quit biting each other!”

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.
