I was at the event organized by opponents of the Wild Olympic Campaign in Quinault on May 14 and was disappointed. They had billed it as a forum to gain more information and learn about the proposal. However, instead, it was light on information and heavy on ideological sound bites from the opponents. They spent most of the time stating opposition and would often take away the microphone from the Wild Olympics supporters when they were trying to answer questions.

Out of a dozen speakers, the two which represented the Wild Olympics announced that they plan to hold a workshop on Saturday, June 4 at the Amanda Park Library in Quinault from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. for local residents to stop by and learn more about the program and give input.

We were told the format will be similar to the workshop the Wild Olympics supporters held at Grays Harbor College last month — facts, maps and the ability to have face to face conversations about how to improve the proposal.

No stage, no microphones — just information.

If you have questions, this is the place to get your answers.
