The upcoming election is an important one for the Ocean Shores citizens. The economy is on the upswing and we are moving forward economically. We want to keep that momentum going.

Imagine. It’s 2 a.m., 100-150 feet above your house, four military helicopters buzzing. It is summer and grandchildren sleeping outside are scared. Helicopters taking evasive action to avoid hitting trees that are 100 feet to 200 feet tall. Wildlife, eagles, flocks of geese and ducks being spooked and diverted by military helicopters.
I am writing in response to the Aug. 25, letter from Robin Moore, “More than a dime’s worth of difference.”
Time for changes
Vote for change
In regards to the proposed lane changes on Wishkah and Heron — that’s probably about the silliest idea that anyone has come up with for awhile.
I am writing to congratulate the City of Aberdeen on adopting a six-month moratorium on crude oil storage, affirming the enormous risk and little gain associated with oil storage and transport in Grays Harbor.
The Aug. 18, Daily World carried a story headlined “Organizers question intent of camper’s arrest.” One of our police officers observed a person thought to be a wanted felon in an outdoor place, confirmed that the man was wanted for arrest, and the police department arrested the man. There was no evil plot here, it was professional policing. This is what we want our police officers to do; to protect and serve. They do it very well and we should thank them for their service. When I say thank them for their service, I don’t mean just pertaining to one arrest that was illustrated in a newspaper article, but for all of the selfless and professional service they give to our communities, seen and unseen.
In the mid 1970s, due to the initiative of a city official, the City of Aberdeen changed the three-lane configuration on Wishkah Street to two lanes. Needless to say, chaos and congestion ensued. The three-lane configuration was restored after one week.
Crystal Dingler is my choice for mayor of Ocean Shores. I choose to vote for her because she is capable, committed, connected, and has demonstrated that she can do the job well, plus she has the desire to “re-up” for another four-year term.
I am new to this area, so at the risk of sounding redundant, I’d like to address the problem with railroad tankers in general that are carrying crude oil every day and will be here unless we do more to stop it.
Recently in The Daily World there were pros and cons concerning the location of a tourist center in Aberdeen. It was suggested to be at the now vacant Pourhouse Tavern, and I think it should.
“For Better or Worse”
I have never been much of a concertgoer because they are typically too loud, too crowded and too much hassle. However, I love going to the D&R Theatre in Aberdeen. Recently, at the America concert, we got to see internationally famous talent up close and personal. Awesome show!
Coastal Harvest would like to extend a sincere thank you to the Hoquiam and Aberdeen graduating classes of 1995 for their outstanding support via Food Ball 2.0! Their challenge brought in much needed funds so that we could continue our work in feeding the hungry.
