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.

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.

U.S. can do more to spur job growth

On Thursday we learned that the U.S. economy added 288,000 jobs in June, concluding the largest first-half-year for job growth since the late 1990s. Meanwhile, the unemployment rate has fallen by nearly 4 percentage points from its peak of 10 percent in October 2009, with the pace of decline doubling in the past year to the fastest drop in nearly three decades.

At tank farms, no need for big employee parking lots

In the Saturday, June 28, issue of The Daily World , Mark Reisman asks us to “measure the risk and find a way to make oil work here.” He builds his argument on the foundation that the Harbor’s “economic and social decline” will be reversed through capital investment in “the oil transportation opportunity.” That foundation is as unstable as the mud flats where the oil storage tanks are to be built.

McCleary needs less expensive policing option

As a resident of McCleary for more than 65 years, I have seen a lot of changes, good and bad, in our city. The community support of our good citizens has brought a tear of joy to my eyes many times. But these times we now are experiencing are very heavy on my heart.
