Sharon Kivisto: Port district could do more to promote economic development | Friday Harbor Port Commission candidate profile
- Oct 2, 2009 at 1:00PM updated Oct 9, 2009 at 9:50AM
Sharon Kivisto comes to the Friday Harbor Port Commission race with a unique perspective: She’s a former elected official who knows what it’s like to make decisions affecting quality of life and tax dollars, and she’s an online journalist who has been observing and reporting on government for more than 10 years. “As a reporter, you’re always on the outside being an observer. I felt like I wanted to be back participating,” she said. “It’s a small community, so it’s not unusual for someone to be wearing several hats. I have a lot of knowledge about different jurisdictions and all these different plans. It would be kind of nice to use that knowledge in a different way instead of just writing.”

Dogged by injuries and far from home, the Friday Harbor volleyball team tumbled in three straight as La Conner collected a lopsided win at home Oct. 1 and remained undefeated in league play. The Wolverines, who lost 6-foot junior Kelsey Barnes to a season-ending injury before the start of the 2009 campaign, were without senior setter Kayla Marvulli, injured and unable to play, and had a single substitute on the bench.

The third annual Mitchell Bay International Regatta took off last Saturday in what was to be the best regatta ever. The two-day event, with nine boats sailing out of Mitchell Bay into Haro Strait, began with winds of force 3, increasing to force 4 in the afternoon. Most of us should have reefed right at the start, but past experience led us to think the winds would die shortly in the afternoon. Ah, not so this time.

They want to make decisions on your behalf. They want to decide how your tax dollars are best spent. And in some cases, the privilege of representing you will come with compensation and full health benefits – better than many of their potential constituents receive. “They” are the candidates for office in the Nov. 3 general election. This election is significant in many ways: For the first time in 12 years, there are more than two candidates for mayor of Friday Harbor.

Thanks to director Andrew V. McLaglen, a marvelous array of local talent and the great theater our community has generously established, we now have a boffo performance of a play by the most successful playwright in American theatrical history, Neil Simon. I kid you not: Our local performance of “The Odd Couple” excels the show I saw on the stage when it won all those Tonys, the great movie starring Jack Lemmon and Walter Matthau, the long-running TV comedy series, and, of course, the ABC cartoon series. Theater, anywhere, anytime, doesn’t get any better than this.
