Coast Guard rescues unconscious fisherman off of Grays Harbor coast

GRAYS HARBOR, Wash. – The Coast Guard says it has rescued an unconscious fisherman off a vessel west of Grays Harbor, Wash.

The Coast Guard received a call for help around 6:30 a.m. Saturday. The crewmember had been knocked unconscious when a block hit him in the head.

CPR helped the fisherman breath again, but he did not regain consciousness on the vessel.

The man was taken to Legacy Emanuel Medical Center in Portland, Ore.

Road to Recovery program now available in Grays Harbor

GRAYS HARBOR COUNTY, Wash. – The Road to Recovery program is now available in Grays Harbor County, it offers patients fighting cancer free rides to their appointments. To volunteer, or use the service, call the American Cancer Society at 800-227-2345.

Many patients are unable to drive themselves to their cancer related appointments due to a number of reasons, and often forgo treatment because they have no transportation. Now, because of your hard work with Relay For Life, we are able to help these patients with FREE rides through the Road to Recovery Program.

Patients need to call the American Cancer Society toll-free number to request rides in advance: 1-800-227-2345.

If you or someone you know is interested in becoming a driver to help more patients get to their cancer related appointments, please call Jessie at 253-207-5155. The more drivers we have, the more patients we can get to their life saving treatments

Coast Guard responds, 4 already rescued from Grays Harbor waters by passing boat

GRAYS HARBOR, WASH. – The Coast Guard says they dispatched a helicopter and a boat after learning of a mayday call about four people in the water about 12 miles west of Grays Harbor, Wash., but a passing boat managed to rescue all four.

The four were taken aboard the vessel Carmelita on Monday. All had been wearing life jackets, it was not known how they ended up in the water.

Coast Guard Petty Officer Zac Crawford in Seattle says his agency sent the helicopter and boat but “it was all taken care off” so they returned to their stations.

Grays Harbor pass named to honor David “Burlap” Rabey

GRAYS HARBOR COUNTY, Wash. – The state has officially named an Olympic National Forest mountain pass in north Grays Harbor County “Burlap Pass” to honor the late David “Burlap” Rabey.
Caleb Maki with the Committee on Geographic Names told the board earlier this month “This is a new name for an un-named pass in Grays Harbor. The name would honor David L. Rabey. He managed a local trucking company, and was involved in an elk hunting camp in the area. We did receive about 38 signatures in support, and the county has no objection and is supportive of this proposal.
Burlap Pass is on a US Forest Service road across a gap at elevation 3,215 feet between the East and West forks of the Humptulips River,  about 5 miles southwest of Discovery Peak. It’s been unofficially known as “Windy Pass.” for years.
