From finger-painting t-shirts to swimming lessons, from Music on the Lawn to Films in the Park, from senior fitness to school sports, Island Rec has consistently provided programs, events and open space that serve and support the very heartbeat of our island and our community.
Cries of support were heard in the stirring documentary, “Our Sacred Obligation”. Thank you to Ken Crawbuck for showing this film as part of his Tragedy of the Commons film series on March 21. Thank you also to the San Juan Island Library for hosting this well-attended event.
Allegations by a letter writer of my having a conflict of interest have no merit. He jumps to an erroneous conclusion that I knew what the future would bring.

My wife and I live in the town of Friday Harbor. Our monthly water/sewer bill has a “base” rate charge... Why can’t this same scenario be used by OPALCO?
Our “Dining” goal is to raise $6,000 for our scholarship fund and you can help by simply dining out for breakfast, lunch or dinner (or all three!) on this day.
Who in the world is Mimi Gates, and why should I care if she is amused?
Charlie (Bodenstab) and the IMA Board have done a fabulous job of putting these beautiful and most professionally presented exhibits together of William Morris and his pupils. Clearly, this gorgeously built IMA will attract major contributions to Friday Harbor and the San Juans in the future.
