OCEAN SHORES, Wash. – An 85 year old man with dimentia was found early this morning after he apparently wandered from his Ocean Shores condo overnight. Sergeant Grossi with the OSPD tells us he was discovered missing at around 5 this morning, although his family was unsure of when he left overnight with the dog. Officers found the man at another condo complex about a 1/4 mile North of his rental just before 7 this morning. He was cold and disoriented but otherwise unharmed and returned to his family.
OCEAN SHORES, Wash. – The North Beach Chamber of Commerce in Ocean Shores tells us they have been advised that there is a large ring of people involved in a check writing scam who have hit 45 businesses from Grays Harbor to Pacific County and as far south as Astoria. Local businesses are circulating a list of names associated with the scam, the chamber says you should be suspicious of any large check amounts even if the name does not appear on the list.
Next weekend begins the Sunset magazine feature of its first ever “Idea Town,” and to the good fortune of Grays Harbor, it is the new beach town of Seabrook. Two new homes have been constructed, and will be featured in the August edition of Sunset. The home tours begin August 2, and it’s worth the drive to Seabrook to take a look.
Of course I can’t pass up the opportunity to mention again that Peter Brachvogel, the architect of the homes, has Harbor roots. His father Max Brachvogel Jr. was raised in Aberdeen, his grandfather Max Brachvogel MD had his medical office on 4th and Broadway, and his great-grandfather William H. Abel was a well-known trial attorney.
