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.

We’re writing to encourage Ocean Shores residents to vote for the Ocean Shores Library levy.
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.
