HAPPY ST. PATRICK’S DAY: Ocean Shores green

Local taxes have jumped some 40 percent in the last five years, councils have passed Street LID and ambulance utility add-ons, employee salaries are shooting up like shuttle launches, the Convention Center can’t seem to get any new business and has accelerating bond payments looming, citizens feel City Hall won’t listen to them, minutes and other record keeping by some boards and commissions are a sad joke . . . Yes, the man-made government of Ocean Shores is  slow-motion train wreck the keeps happening again and gain. And yet . . . Ocean Shores remains Nature at its finest. Its hard to match the beauty of the deer, the snowy owls, the eagles, the awesome ocean and, as these J. Smersh photos show, the awe-inspiring Weatherwax:

      “baby lotion” could you give us a good example of a valid complaint about “Happy St, Patricks Day”?? Guess we just need some help to get the old ball rolling. Lead on, McDuff!

    You are a horrible troll. Complete failure.

    Cheers child!

  3. Who's complaining? says:

    Pretty hard ot argue with the truth of the statements made by Tom. The nature is the redeeming factor in Ocean Shores. That is until the real trolls try to bulldoze it. But some really great shots of nature and a short but cute St. Patrick’s Day parade do make for a nice entry to spring.
