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.
A sincere thank you is due to the participating artisans who made their diligence and professional craft available to the public.
A big event does need someone to organize it; but it also does not come together without the effort and hard work of countless volunteers.
There are people who are extremely disappointed by your rush to approve both the Shoreline Master Plan as rewritten and the Eastsound Sub Area Plan as rewritten.
Thanks to everyone who responded to our call for blankets to help keep the animals warm
I am so thankful to live in a community that takes care of its own.
I had an amazing time in the recent campaign enjoying many pleasant encounters.
I’m sure I’m not the only one who is grateful that election season is behind us.
I want to thank San Juan islanders for electing me to the public hospital district commission.
Now that the election is over, we can turn our attention to the 2016 county budget.
I want to thank all my wonderful supporters who offered their help, advice, and encouragement during this long and contentious election.
I feel that a major and glaring difference between the two medical facilities on San Juan Island is that of humanity.
This has been such a dispiriting campaign. We’ve seen three candidates engage in spreading falsehoods and smears regarding their opponents, and repeating them even when confronted with documentation that what they were saying was false.
The “civil investigative demand” issued by the state attorney general’s office, alleging Medicaid fraud, is quite stunning.
That is so that we can get our public hospital district commissioners to consider more carefully the people who are served by our public tax dollars.
Even a small fundraiser involves lots of people, and I’d like to thank everyone for a great party!
I hope islanders and local media take a deeper look and consider the consequences of this type of campaigning.
As the hospital board elections intensify, several interesting issues have arisen, including the allegation that a candidate's having received the endorsement of a county party organization somehow improperly changes the election from nonpartisan to partisan.
I encourage the voters of the SJC Public Hospital District to review the information on the Believe the Best website.
The services provided by the hospital, while imperfect, are better than having no hospital at all
Passage of an EMS levy by regaining the public’s trust that their tax dollars will be used wisely and efficiently; making sure all islanders have access to the best possible range of health care services.
I encourage all San Juan County residents to become fully informed about the facts related to PeaceHealth Peace Island Medical Center.
Sit down, have a cup of coffee, and really listen to someone who has a different opinion. I know its wishful thinking, but we just might learn something.
If you are thirsty for the truth but you don’t have time to do all the research, then I suggest you go to the website Believe the Best.
So the truth is all through this website for voters to go to so they can make an informed decision when they mark their ballots.
I hope you will see the gifts we have been given and put your energies into making this hospital a community endeavor. It is not“we” and “they.” It is “us.”
If we are going to pass a levy in 2016 we’re going to need a solid, defensible EMS budget that is the basis for a realistic levy proposal to the voters.
