Ryderwood News 1.9.13

The past week’s fairly dry weather also brought us a pretty snowfall. It was a good two inches and it stayed around for a couple of days. The streets weren’t too bad as long as you didn’t have to go anywhere. The downside was it’s been pretty darn cold.

The Spirit of the Cowlitz: Their villages, part two

The Upper Cowlitz villages were numerous and relatively small.  They extended far upriver, nearly to Mount Rainier, this being possible because of the nature of their valley and the fact that Mount Rainier is an isolated peak rising from a low base, not a high point on a mountain range.

WHH - Letters to the Editor

"get a grip" Raymond
The excessive noise issue from the JKFP operations was very real, contrary to what many letter writers have implied; and it was ridiculous for folks not living in the immediate vicinity to offer up opinions, especially that the affected homeowners should just move away. I don’t care how many times it is said, “There has always been a mill there.” There has never ever been a log-chipper the size and power of the one, which had operated there (or any where previously in the Raymond vicinity) since this past summer.

Curtis is Full of Psychobabble

As for you Mr. Curtis, I don’t think you shared your toys when growing up nor was taught compassion, sympathy or empathy. I was not in agreement with your article and did not appreciate you writing and putting me in agreement. It is in my opinion that you are a bully on our playground and a hater. These people did not do anything to you and I am so sure that you aren’t going to help those that lost their job to find one, let alone hire one for your business. Thirty-five to 40 people lost their jobs. If I want to blame you and those in opposition, I can, it is part of our Constitution. I read your psycobabble.

January open season for ID theft
January open season for ID theft

Most of us are glad this time of year when W-2s, bank statements and tax records start arriving in the mail in anticipation of our hopefully-lucrative tax refunds.

ID thieves are really glad because most of us manage to ignore the wealth of sensitive information we allow to sit in our mailboxes, even though they may seem secure.
