The latest edition of The Journal of the San Juan Islands is available at some stores tonight

No teachers will be laid off in San Juan Island schools. But hours were cut for classified staff members and district officials are still scrambling to raise another $165,000 money to qualify for all pledged matching funds and fully eradicate the district’s budget shortfall.

That’s the top story in Wednesday’s Journal of the San Juan Islands, which is available tonight at some outlets. It will be available at all carriers and newsracks and in the mail Wednesday.

The Journal consists of 40 pages in three sections: News, Opinion, Letters to the Editor, Obituaries, Business, Education, Law & Justice, Sports, Island Scene, Calendar, Jill Urbach, Beth Helstein’s Island Books, Engagements, Mary Frances Crossword, Classifieds, At Your Service Ad Directory, Public Notices, and Project Home.
