PORT ANGELES: Hearing speakers say, “Keep LaPush station open”

PORT ANGELES — Four hearings later, the message remains strongly on course: Don’t close the U.S. Coast Guard station at LaPush.

Dozens of speakers have opposed the move at four hearings held in North Olympic Peninsula communities this week.

The series of sessions ended Thursday in Port Angeles. Others were previously held in Forks, LaPush and Port Townsend.
