Skagit County has lent the Firewise communities of San Juan Island a chipper to help them maintain safety zones and reduce fuel loads. Originally, the chipper was going to be here for 10 days which allowed only the new Firewise Communities access to its use. Now the plan is for about three weeks or as long as the chipper is here, to allow any present or new Firewise Community to use the chipper for a day. If any non-Firewise Community would join the free nationally recognized program, they would also qualify for a free chipper day.

When I first came to the islands, I lived across the road from Ross and B.J. Miner and next door to Jim and Bea Hitch. These two fine couples guided us as to the ways of the island.

I thought of that last weekend, after all the holidays including Epiphany, when Helen and I spent a quiet January Saturday that ran us ragged.

Those injuries proved to be relatively minor and she has since returned to the island, Undersheriff Jon Zerby said.
