In a time where the political class shies away from controversial decisions and opts for the expedient ones, Hoquiam City Council’s recent vote on E-Verify is a breath of fresh air.
Aberdeen voters have an important task at hand, as ballots arrive in the mail for the maintenance and operations levy. There is nothing more important than ensuring that our children receive the best quality education possible. This measure, as in previous years, is a hold-the-line-levy, with no increase over the one approved by voters two years ago.
I was born and raised in Aberdeen and graduated from Weatherwax in 1964. I attended Grays Harbor College for two years and then went away to nursing school in 1966.

Strong showings in the Iowa caucuses by Ted Cruz and Marco Rubio sent them roaring into next week’s Republican presidential primary in New Hampshire with a head of steam at the expense of a deflated Donald Trump.
Improbably but relentlessly, Donald Trump is marching toward the Republican Party’s presidential nomination. Polls suggest that he may pull off a surprise win in the Iowa caucuses on Monday. He’s an even stronger frontrunner in New Hampshire and other primary states. And last week, he showed that it’s possible to win a debate by not showing up.
This year is starting off with the worst performance of stocks in decades. It has many analysts wondering exactly what’s driving it and, more importantly, whether there’s an end in sight.
Here’s a prediction: The results of the Iowa caucuses and the New Hampshire primary will tell us a great deal about the fight for the GOP nomination — and almost nothing about the battle for the Democratic nomination or anything else.
Nothing is more important for our community than quality schools. On behalf of the businesses and organizations represented by Greater Grays Harbor Inc., we want to encourage voters to mark and mail ballots by Feb. 9.
As a citizen of Aberdeen, I feel compelled to weigh in against the idea of locating shipping containers for homeless shelters as proposed to the Aberdeen council.
