I also find it startling that the county would appoint an individual to any position volunteer or otherwise, who is personally or as part of an organization, actively engaged in a lawsuit against the county. I believe the San Juan County Council should put fairness and democracy back into the center position.

A traffic stop for speeding prompted the arrest of a San Juan Island man for DUI twice in less than three hours, following a late-night traffic stop in the 400 block of Tucker Avenue.

In my opinion, if Chairman Jamie Stephens and members of the county council (who voted 6-0 to approve this appointment) succumb to the bullying we are seeing in opposition to Tim Blanchard, we will all be worse off for the loss of an excellent addition to the planning commission.

While a 16.7-pounder may be a far cry from many trophy fish landed over the years by Nelson, winner of some 30 or so Northwest fishing competitions, he’s delighted to be back on top, and to pocket the derby’s top cash prize, $10,000. That’s $599 a pound, if you’re keeping score.

The San Juan County Sheriff’s Office made 16 DUI arrests in the month of January. If that rate were to hold, the number of DUI arrests would hit 180 over the course of the year. That’s nearly double the 93 of 2011, one of the highest totals in recent years.

As I waited for my son's turn in the ER I walked around the facility, gazing at fancy woodwork and locally sourced decor. Cool stuff. But at the same time I had this sinking feeling, 'Who's paying for all of this?'. Well, I guess I am, an insured self-employed guy who's high deductible won't cover a dime towards my son's stitches.

As voters, what we really want is civility. We don't need personal attacks on other candidates and exaggerated claims about special interest groups. Come on, this is San Juan County, not Congress.

The “rational” used to defend the same kind of at-large unequal districts scheme in San Juan County has been defeated.
- Feb 17, 2013 at 6:00AM
The county has been divided into three districts since 1889: San Juan No. 1, Orcas No. 2, Lopez/Shaw No. 3, with each district including neighboring smaller islands.
