This tea party had a little bite to it. About 45 islanders converged at noon on the courthouse lawn in Friday Harbor to protest against government spending at all levels in a local rendition of the anti-tax tea parties taking place today across the nation. With signs in hand and hats adorned with tea bags, islanders from Lopez, Orcas and San Juan islands shared a distaste for the taxpayer-financed bailouts of Wall Street and the banking and automobile industry, as well as this year's $3 trillion-plus federal budget. They had little appreciation for any increase in state or local taxes either.

It’s taken 18 months of researching and planning, but the Shared Care program is now available on the islands. And we think it’s a great thing. Shared Care is a regional service based in Bellingham. It is operated through PeaceHealth, which operates St. Joseph’s Hospital and proposes building a hospital on San Juan Island. Because the San Juans are in the St. Joseph’s service area, PeaceHealth agreed to extend the program to us (the Orcas Island Fire Department worked with PeaceHealth to bring the program here).
