Nothing beats a personal recommendation when you’re looking for a professional. 9 of 10 people recommended Glas Guy to me, and now I know why.
More than stock replacement and chip repair, Toledo’s Tim & Wendy Phillips have built their sturdy Chehalis-based business on experience, quality & service, installing custom, cut-to-fit and specialty auto glass (free within a 50-mile radius) for RV’s, heavy equipment* and classic vehicles, and more. They also support local school sports and businesses, admitting you can generally find them at Gateway Pizza at least once weekly.
Despite a busy schedule, both took time to explain details to me (a replacement installation years back in Metropolis was poorly done, leading to rust & corrosion), set things right, and got me out the door in record time.
But it was Michelle, Office Lady Extraordinaire, who drew me in with her unhurried phone manner, sprinkled with “darlin’” and “honey” in a way I can tolerate from very few. She made me feel like she had all the time in the world to take care of my problem. (She didn’t. Have the time, I mean.)
Say Hi to Michelle when you call 1.877.GLAS.GUY and mention TheOtherToledo.com for a discount.
*Laminated glass cut-to-fit for heavy equipment reduces downtime - no lengthy wait for proprietary replacements.
While Toledo School District races to complete long-overdue repairs and upgrades, The Chronicle reports Washington State Attorney General’s Office declares State Has Properly Funded Schools. Schools representative in the 2014 lawsuit Attorney Tom Ahearne refers to it as “reshuffling the deck chairs” (on the Titanic).
Toledo School Board endorses November’s Bond Measure to bring all buildings up to current seismic and other safety codes.

Health Corner: Heat & Poor Air Quality - Lethal Combo
Dominating this week’s record heat combined with the smoky pall hanging over SW WA and NW OR, this post (08.02.2017) from Lewis County Fire Protection District 2 (Toledo):
News Release: Southwest Clean Air Agency- Wednesday, August 2, 2017
Increasing ozone levels in Clark County with continued hot weather, along with intrusions of wildfire smoke and stagnant conditions throughout Clark, Cowlitz, Lewis, Skamania and Wahkiakum Counties today and into next week have triggered SWCAA to issue an air pollution advisory. This advisory, for wildfire smoke throughout southwest Washington and ground-level ozone (smog) in Vancouver is expected to last through Tuesday, August 8th.
The Oregonian links this National Weather Service video with a meteorologist regarding the phenomenon.
Please check on your neighbors, especially those vulnerable to heat and poor air quality - elderly, chronically ill, and very young.
And consider being the hero you always pictured yourself as a youngster. Download Volunteer Firefighter applications from Toledo Fire Department, and spend your Monday nights training to make a difference in your own community.
Toledo Cooling Stations through Saturday listed in Wednesday’s Column. Updates posted to Facebook.
