November 2014 was a very pivotal point in America! First we had the lowest voter turnout in America in 75 years at only 36 percent of registered voters casting a ballot (according to NBC News). Are we really supporting our troops and freedoms by not voting?

While working for the Skokomish Tribe, I have been involved with the restoration of the Skokomish River Estuary and flood plain. I was fortunate to work with many good people that made the restoration work a reality. It took a broad array of agencies, the Skokomish Tribe, Tacoma Power and Mason County to make an impact on flooding on the Skokomish while restoring the lower watershed. Taking dikes down, removing culverts, restoring the flood plain were all part of the work.
Weed out the warmongers
I am deeply troubled by the fact that our rights, freedom, laws and privileges are steadily disappearing, day by day. Atheistic ideologies rule. And anyone daring to stand up for their Christian values find themselves condemned by the public in general, dragged into courts, fined and some jailed for their efforts.
Congratulations to Bill Dyer and the musicians of the Grays Harbor Symphony! The Nov. 23 “Bach to Broadway” concert was entertaining, fun and well done.
We want to thank all the local businesses and community members who donated items to make our annual Christmas auction such a success.
On behalf of Rick Broten’s family, we’d like to express our deepest appreciation to our family and friends for all their support.
During this of time of Thanksgiving, I am thankful for wonderful people such as Beverly and Joe Cornell. They are so eager to share out of their pockets and their donations from our Harbor businesses to help students with school supplies. Many families are struggling with basic needs and having supplies available for their child is a relief and met with gratitude from the parents and students for these items. This generosity of the Cornell’s time and effort along with donations from our Harbor is far reaching for the greater good.
We need sustainable jobs, not oil jobs
The family of Milton “Bud” Bourke would like to thank all of his friends and family who came to his celebration of life Oct. 18 at the Aberdeen Elks. Also for all the food, cards and support you gave us. It was so appreciated.
For almost three years I have been involved with program known as “Faces Never Forgotten” for the Vietnam Veterans Memorial Fund. The goal is to put a face with every name that is etched on the wall. I have collected over 1,200 photos since May 2013 and with your help it will be more.
I found it a bit un-American that your Tuesday, Nov. 11, 2014, Veterans Day edition of The Daily World didn’t have room on the front page for a small American flag and a thank you note to the many veterans in your service area.
