United States Coast Guard Air Crews and Boat Crews spent Saturday evening and most of Sunday looking for a missing fishing vessel in Willapa Bay. The F/V Kelli J was reported missing by the wife of the captain and lone soul on board. She reported he had taken the vessel out and did not return to port as scheduled prompting her to call the Coast Guard.
Saturday, May 19 the American Legion Post 150 and VFW Post 968, both of Raymond, held a re-dedication for the WWI Memorial next to the Willapa Seaport Museum in Raymond. Around 100 people were present to witness the ceremony including many WWII, Korean War and Vietnam Veterans. The last surviving WWI veteran sadly passed away in 2011.
Coastline Construction owner Shane Moncy and friend Dan Lindt have opened the Oyster Shack next to DSHS in South Bend under the new name OysterBay. For over a month residents and passersby observed the construction as the team setup the location. Moscy and Lindt look to have it open all summer with plans to keep it open during the winter months too.
