I am very disappointed with the way in which the issue of transporting oil to Grays Harbor is being handled.
Is Grays Harbor going to cut off its nose to spite its face? Do the county commissioners really think they can “force” Weyerhauser to keep their land open? This is private land — they can close the gates at any time. They are no different than any other private landowner.
