Thanks for celebrating with us

As a co-chair to the Clallam Fire District 3 Centennial celebration held on Aug. 9, I would like to share our appreciation to the community for its support in making this special event a huge success.

As a co-chair to the Clallam Fire District 3 Centennial celebration held on Aug. 9, I would like to share our appreciation to the community for its support in making this special event a huge success.

Both co-chair Jeff Albers and I are still amazed at the overwhelming support of such a large group of volunteers and contributors who stepped forward to help us put this event on.

Without a large group of sponsors, the event would not have become a reality. It is through their generous donations that we were able to fund this weekend without the use of district funds. Key corporate sponsors to help us put this on were: the City of Sequim, 7 Cedars Casino, Sound Community Bank, First Federal, Olympic Ambulance, The Blackball Ferry Lines, US Fire and America’s Elite. In addition, IAFF Local 2933, the firefighters’ union, also made a substantial donation as well as provided needed assistance.

Special recognition should go to Guy Horton, our emcee, for doing a masterful job of organizing the Sidney B.C. (Canadian) and Snohomish District 7 (American) Honor Guards as well as the Snohomish 7 Pipes and Drums in the opening ceremony.

Both Jeff and I also would like to thank all our District 3 volunteer staff for contributing hundreds of hours of their time to this great cause.

Letter: Beware of I-594

France had gun registration. World War II arrived. Germany invaded France, obtained the registration lists, stormed through the country picking up arms, if denied ownership, or refused they were executed on the spot.

Letter: Vote for Yacklin

My wife and I have known Kim Yacklin for over 20 years. She is exactly what we need in the Auditor's Office, someone who has a high level of understanding of the operations of the county and someone who has the integrity, professionalism and intelligence to run a department.
