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.
Anyone who wondered how Barack Obama was going to spend the last two years of his presidency got an answer last week: He’ll be fighting a war.
The Enchanted Valley Chalet has been moved 100 feet back from the Quinault River.
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.
Like most people, I have been keeping track of the issue of Grays Harbor finally getting a new Superior Court judge. And the issues of a new prosecuting attorney.

Over the last year, lower federal court judges have removed most of the suspense from the questions of whether and when the Supreme Court might rule marriage equality to be a federal constitutional right. In case after case, in red states and blue, judges have ruled that same-sex marriage bans are unconstitutional. This makes it very likely that the Supreme Court will grant review in such a case this year, and even more likely, assuming it does, that it will rule that the Constitution requires states to extend marriage equality to gay couples.
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.

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.
I am responding to Ron Craig’s letter one month ago on illegal immigration.
So how does the Harbor feel now about Aberdeen’s downtown savior now?
Addressing a United Nations summit on global warming, President Barack Obama said that here was “the one issue that will define the contours of this century.” And, yes, it could, especially if the politicians insist on remedies that aren’t remedies, ignore remedies that actually fix things, confuse speculation with certainty and show the climate a thing or two about ways to hurt people.
Edward Snowden appears this month on the cover of Wired magazine from his hideout in Russia, clutching an American flag. It’s an image bound to rile folks who consider the former National Security Agency worker more traitor than patriot for leaking classified documents he stole.
