Creating a safe space for victims to be heard

  • Jun 8, 2016 at 12:00AM updated at 11:55AM

In the last five years, crime stories we report on are indeed becoming more disturbing. In the last six months we have seen a slew of crime involving sexual assaults. The most upsetting story that has ever come across my desk was this week's article involving the severe abuse of a toddler. (Read more about this story in this week's edition). These stories beg the question, why is this happening?

“Vote Yes for SJI EMS 2016” asks for support

  • Jun 26, 2016 at 1:30AM

In August 2016, voters will be asked to vote on a replacement levy for San Juan Island Emergency Medical Services. This measure supports SJIEMS - not hospital services at Peace Island Medical Center. The current levy expires on December 31, 2016, after which there will be no more funding for SJIEMS, unless voters approve a levy to continue funding this agency.

Thank You

Dear Editor,

Maintain EMS care quality

Many of your readers know me. I had the privilege of practicing Medicine on the island from 2008 until 2014. In that period of time I worked closely with the EMTs and Paramedics that the islanders are fortunate to have. I can tell you that in my forty years of practicing Emergency Medicine across the country I have not witnessed the level of teamwork, skill and caring that exists in the pre-hospital emergency care on San Juan Island.
