Yesterday I decided to go to the League of Women Voters monthly meeting, and their guest speakers really inspired me.
I wish to express my appreciation for The Journal naming Howard as Citizen of the Year. He is totally deserving of that honor.
The San Juan Lions Club wishes to thank the San Juan Islands Public Schools Foundation for once again inviting us to compete in the Knowledge Bowl.
The county is currently rezoning much of the county shoreline ostensibly to eliminate confusion. In almost every case where there is a differing zoning for the intertidal zone and the water off shore of this zone, the least environmentally restrictive of the two is chosen to replace both, creating one zoning from the high tide mark seaward.
The members of Orcas Island Fire and Rescue wish to extend deepest condolences to the family of Chief Marler and to the members of San Juan Fire District 3.

Fire Chief, protector and great leader: gone, but never forgotten.
Children are our future, and technology seems to be their future. That’s why voters should pass the San Juan Island School District's Capital Improvements and Technology Levy on Feb. 9.
The projects and equipment the levy will fund are “needs” and not just “wants.”
Sanders' goal is to rebuild and unite America's middle class.
It is time for Orcas Power and Light Cooperative’s Rock Island division to set up a 24-hour outage number and repair service for the Internet just as OPALCO does for electrical service.
My support lies in my firm conviction that the measure of a community may be taken by the support it provides to its next generation.
Perhaps you too have noticed that your bill is considerably higher than last year (mine is $100 higher and I didn’t use that much more power) and that your annual return of “profits” was cut in half this year
I have a friend who dreams about the San Juan Islands. She longs for its rural tranquility, incredible beauty, but most of all for the personal safety enjoyed by those that live here.
Shadow, my magnificent fuzzy friend has joined Dodie Gann on a journey where there must be great opportunities to explore and bark.
Your article seems to be designed to drive all other service providers off the island and I object to your use of this newspaper for such a purpose.
I am two weeks into retirement already and am finally getting around to writing the love letter that I meant to compose before leaving the employ of the Community Foundation.
I can speak for the committee when I say we finalized our list feeling very confident that we had kept only those projects that met this key prioritization test.
The truth of the matter is that CenturyLink just doesn’t care!
Basic education funding provided by the state of Washington is no longer sufficient to fully fund school district capital facility improvements and technology.
We still have a long way to go before we can be smitten with ourselves.
My to-do list plan is to scribble a list with such poor penmanship that an hour later I will have no idea what any of the jobs and goals could possibly be.
Do you realize that our San Juan County Council's proposed update to the existing Shoreline Master Plan removes the ban on oil pipelines, reduces protection of critical habitat for forage fish that juvenile salmon feed on, and fails to ban fish pens as nearby Island County has recently done?
This should not occur, as all telephone companies nationwide are required to have sufficient backup to power their central office switches and the phone lines themselves, during electrical power outages.
The Mullis Center wishes to thank the community for all the support at our monthly pancake breakfasts.
The Island Lights Festival was a huge success this year and so many people contributed to this!
Students who have completed a minimum of 80 hours of volunteer community service during their high school career are eligible for a scholarship from our organization.
They’re off! The 181 shoe boxes that have been assembled from our San Juan community are on their way to children in over 140 countries and part of a 10 million gift project of Operation Christmas Child.
In my opinion, a community paper should be, as you wrote, “a trusted source” with endorsements which hopefully urge citizens to vote and participate in a democracy.
All funds raised through the dog wash event were donated to the Animal Protection Society, as the materials for the scratching posts were donated by the kind people at Browne’s Home Center.
Right after the incident your sheriff and prosecuting attorney traveled to Island County to ask: What happened in the days leading up to this event? What was the cause of death?
Under the charter, each of you now represents the entire county, and failure to act to fill the seat could suggest partisan or personal animus, neither of which is appropriate.
We need community members to come and give valuable feedback to our students about their projects.
I would like to say thank you to our library for all its many wonderful offerings and its warm and compassionate staff.
I am frustrated that, in the year 2015, we can have a person in charge of land use planning at the county who apparently does not recognize that there are connections between land and sea.
