Lifetime Achievement Award given to San Juan Island’s Dr. Nancy Maryboy

  • Today at 1:30AM

Established in 2007, the Guardians of Culture and Lifeways International Awards Program identifies and recognizes organizations and individuals who serve as outstanding examples of how indigenous archives, libraries, museums, and individuals contribute to the vitality and cultural sovereignty of Native Nations. The Guardian Award takes its name from the sculpture that stands atop the Oklahoma State Capitol – the work of Seminole Chief Kelly Haney. Senator Haney's message to Award recipients and ATALM attendees is to "Dream big. Work hard. Believe deeply…for this is just the beginning. Let us all rise to our potential."

Support Jarman - Letter

  • Oct 24, 2016 at 3:29PM

Others have written letters of support for Bob Jarman, and I feel compelled to join that list. I have been on a board with Bob and have worked with him on a committee looking at the health care needs of SJC. I have been impressed with his diligence (he always comes to meetings prepared), his willingness to ask questions on issues in need of further explanation. He is nonpartisan, and responds only after considering what's best for San Juan County residents.

Support for Watson-Letter

  • Oct 24, 2016 at 3:12PM

Lessons from the storm - letter

  • Oct 24, 2016 at 12:00AM updated at 2:03PM

So what if the storm from last weekend didn't turn out to be the biggest storm to hit SJI since the Columbus Day 1962 blow-out? I still disagree with the quote in the Journal (10/19/16, p. 16) by weather expert Cliff Mass that his profession "has to stop providing the worst case" scenario for a storm. I would rather know what the worst possibilities of a storm system could be, than to be lulled into a sense of complacency and inattention with "full probablistic guidance."
