Grays Harbor Pulp & Paper company no longer is the name of the big Harbor industrial plant. Since the merger of the Grays Harbor company, the Olympic Forest Products of Port Angeles and Rainier Pulp & Paper company of Shelton, the plant is known as Grays Harbor division of Rayonier, Inc.
When calling the plant, one no longer hears the name drawn out “Grays Harbor Pulp & Paper company” but instead the switchboard operator greets the patron with just “Rayonier.”

• Even with 104 high-steppers in the Washington State University Marching Band, absence of the players from Hoquiam would create a sizable vacuum. The biggest gap would be obvious in the tuba section where you’ll find Ian Edlund, his brother Eric and Allen Porter. And up ahead in the clarinet section there’s Gary Ferguson, while over with the flutes is Marilee (Mickey) McMonagle.

• Riding the passing and running of our quarterback Omar Parker, the Hoquiam Grizzlies galloped out of the SWW Conference cellar last night as they defeated the Kelso Highlanders 28 to 14 at Kelso.
Recovering from a stunning 75 yard run by Kelso’s Dick Schroeder on the Highlander’s first play from scrimmage, Hoquiam scored in the second period on a two-yard quarterback sneak by Parker and the third quarter on an 8-yard pass to Stan Pinnick.

• The Hoquiam High School choir will present a Veterans Day “gift to the community” in two concerts at the 7th Street Theatre Wednesday.
The “Tribute to the American Patriot” will be presented at 2 and 7:30 p.m.
After last year’s concert, there wasn’t a dry eye in the house, say many who attended.
More than 100 students will be involved as well as their parents, said choir director Don Tackett. While he’ll be the one “waving his arms” at the concerts, the students have done all the work, he said. He cited student director sophomore Melinda Sharp and junior student producer Jen-nel Pellegrini as two who have contributed substantially to the show.
