The public hospital district, as a public entity, has a legal obligation to adhere to the Reproductive Privacy Act.
As I traveled to town along Pear Point Road, I was thrilled to see the three houses sponsored by San Juan Community Home Trust as they slowly proceeded up to their new neighborhood at Sun Rise II.
Last week’s front page Journal article regarding pharmacy drug pricing was based on an experience I had on May 10, 2015 at our local drug store. Unfortunately the article left out many relevant facts.
I just want to thank the University of Washington Friday Harbor Labs for putting on another great show of “Jazz at the Labs.” The dinner was excellent!
The real issue here is providing high quality medical care to all of our island residents within the constraints of our size and funding.
Regarding the Journal story on Aug. 5, 2015 about FlexFerry, a privately operated reservation system for our Washington State Ferries, I think we should all be concerned about a number of things.

As many of you know, Tia’s Tacos was burglarized recently. I’ll be honest, my heart broke when I walked through the door and found the restaurant in shambles and the earnings from the San Juan County Fair gone.
I urge you to vote for Bill, Barbara, and Monica – all of whom seek communication, collaboration and pragmatic reasoning, NOT litigation.
A big thank you from the staff at the San Juan County Fair for another great Fair!
This is a “lengthy” process (sorry), and fascinating to watch. It is available for free from the decks of Washington State Ferries as they dock at Anacortes Ferry Terminal. No need to look on YouTube or rent a nature video. Just enjoy a fresh, open air display and marvel at how imaginative nature can be.

I just want to thank the small handful of volunteers who helped out at this year’s photography department at the San Juan County Fair.
I especially want to thank my volunteer supporters, the island businesses that helped out, and the many people who provided their individual endorsements of my campaign.
The most recent addition to the system of public lands on San Juan Island is the Mt. Grant Preserve. The San Juan Preservation Trust is working with the San Juan County Land Bank on a fundraising campaign to permanently protect this spectacular property.
My “creative” hands crocheted a large container and a purse using macrame fiber for which I received a blue ribbon and a red ribbon!
The current facilities charge of $38.90 is extortionate. I did some online research and found that most co-op’s facility charge is set and does not increase over time. Most charges that I saw were in the $15 to $30/month range. Why is our already so high and still increasing?
As an SJPT trustee and a fan of the Land Bank, I urge you to visit Mount Grant to see if you don’t agree that it is an exciting endeavor worthy of your support.
We just climbed to the top of Mount Grant. It is so magnificent that we sent $100 to the campaign to Save Mount Grant.
