Jay Ambrose — Signs of possible healing in Ferguson

We’ve had plenty of rhetorical villains since the fatal police shooting of a black teen in Ferguson, Missouri, grandstanders stirring up fear in vengeful tones, and we’ve ha violence and looting, mostly by nonresidents taking advantage of a tragedy to enrich themselves.

Voters, think for yourselves

It has been said that critical thinking by the electorate is dead. People are expected to make their voting choices by colorful signs, slick flyers and name recognition.

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.
