And, frankly, so do you.

Randy Pennington serving his country

Many of us know someone who was in the Vietnam War. Some veterans will talk about their time there and others still have difficulty talking about the events that occurred. One individual who is willing to talk about his time there is Toledo Reserve Police Officer Randy Pennington.

Randy is one of those rare individuals who gives back to his community. He also gave back to his country at a time when it was not popular to do so. Randy enlisted in the Army in December 1968. He was delayed entry until after he graduated from high school.

Kelli J and Skipper Kevin Soule found at bottom of Willapa Bay

Last week divers from Global Salvage were able to finally reach what had been assumed to be a wreckage at the bottom of Willapa Bay. For days crews were trying to locate the missing FV Kelli J and its skipper Kevin Soule. According to Pacific County Sheriff Scott Johnson he personally called the salvage boat and requested he be informed the minute the crew knew something.

Late Thursday afternoon he received a call back from the boat. "They informed me that they were able to identify the wreckage as the missing Kelli J," he stated. "They've been having a horrible time dealing with strong currents and were only able to identify the boat before having to come back up."

Options on theatre apartments proposed, decision tabled

Raymond City Council members Kaley Hanson and Chris Halpin supplied Mayor Nordin and Council with proposal options of what the city could do with the theatre apartments during the May 21 Raymond City Council meeting. Outlined in the proposal were four options. Three of which could bring the city in revenue and one that would ultimately leave things as they are.

The apartments have spent the last year vacant. After a revitalization push by Mayor Nordin early on in his tenure as mayor, both Councilors Hanson and Halpin began proposing the city use the space as an Airbnb. Over the past 5 years the theatre building has cost the city tens of thousands of dollars and hasn't nearly broke even in some time. The council is now putting all options on the table to help it start getting closer to being self-sufficient.

Option one of the proposal would be to refurbish the apartments to rentable condition and then rent them out at a yearly basis. The cost to refurbish both units is anticipated to be approximately $1,400-$1,500 with anticipated revenue of $14,200-$15,600 annually.
