For the second time in less than two weeks, the Artic Fire Station in Cosi was burglarized.

It was recovered on a logging road near the Pacific County line around 5am today.

The aid car sustained minor damage but a number of items were stolen from the car.

Last week thieves stole a ram used with the Jaws of Life from the station and it still has not been located.

The Elway Research poll was taken on November 21 and 22 and found 43 percent of respondents were “certainly willing” and 21 percent were “probably willing” to back a point five percent sales tax hike proposed by Gov. Chris Gregoire.

The Poll’s margin of error was plus or minus 5 percent.

TEACHERS IN ABERDEEN & HOQUIAM RALLY ON FIRST DAY OF SPECIAL LEGISLATIVE SESSION

November 29, 2011 Comments off

Here in the Harbor – teachers in Aberdeen and Hoquiam conducted their own events on the first day of Olympia’s special session to close a two billion dollar budget gap..

Aberdeen Education Association President Joan Lesman says they need to make the public aware about how more cuts in education funding will hurt all Harbor residents.

Hoquiam Teachers Association President Jean Davis says her organization also wanted to get the word out to the public.

One of the items on the chopping block in Olympia is levy equalization – a process where the state sends money to districts in order to even up funding levels with districts in higher property valuation areas like Seattle.

Lesman says this is a huge area of concern for the Harbor.

Davis minced no words on how Olympia should fix the budget deficit – she says big business and banks need to pay more in taxes.

And Lesman says the Legislature and Governor Chris Gregoire should be working harder at coming up with better ways to solve the money crisis.

The special session in Olympia is expected to go through much of December.
