Three million dollars for an Orcas dock complex? Give us a break! That works out to about 600 years of rent for the same property.
I could not agree more with Don Webster’s letter to the editor regarding the county’s application to acquire rainwater catchments rights. This is about the stupidest proposal I have ever heard.
A couple of years ago I became aware that a movie, “The Battle in Seattle,” was in the making. As I had written the book, “The Battle in Seattle” (published in 2000), the production of a movie of the same name got my attention.

Your article about Mona was heartbreaking (“Rural Confidential: The Mona Story,” Aug. 19 SanJuanJournal.com). The reason she moaned when she was a baby was because she was missing her mother, who she was taken from while still unweaned, and sold in the exotic pet trade.
There seems to be some confusion as to why there are barcodes on your ballot.
Some new Burma Shave-style signs appeared on roadsides last week with the message, “If you don’t want your taxes to go from 10% to Forty, vote for Gordy.”
When the county adopted the council form of government, with six non-partisan seats assigned to districts, it was the hope of the freeholders that this would encourage more participation in local government.
Have you signed up as a supporter of Judge John Linde yet? Judge Linde was appointed by the governor as our Superior Court judge for San Juan County because of his judicial experience and his unbiased application of the law during his many years of experience on the bench.
I’ve had the honor and pleasure of knowing Randy Gaylord, and observing his performance for most of the seven years I’ve been a resident of Orcas Island. I can think of no one better qualified to assume the duties and responsibilities of San Juan County Superior Court judge.
My husband, Bob, and I are voting for John Linde to retain his position as Superior Court judge of San Juan County. Our reasons are many. For purposes of brevity, however, one reason stands out: he has 21 years experience as a judge and is endorsed as the only qualified candidate by over 30 sitting judges from through out western Washington.
This letter is in support of Randy Gaylord for San Juan County Superior Court judge. My recommendation is based on the following ...
The contested Aug. 19 primary election for Superior Court judge is an issue of vital public importance. I fully support Judge John Linde and urge everyone to vote for him.
My family in Friday Harbor sent me the link to your article, “Looking at the world through the eyes of a child,” page 7A, June 4 Journal. Although I am slightly biased, as one of the children you reference is my nephew, I did want to offer you kudos on your angle to the story.
To the people of Friday Harbor: My family and I are very grateful for the concern and help offered us following the death of my husband, Ramsay Milne.
San Juan Journal readers voice support for the new integrated medical center proposed for San Juan Island and more in this week's letters to the editor.
The in-depth coverage of the band Jazz Coalescence was appreciated. However, I want to point out that Jazz Coalescence was only one of the two bands that performed that night. The San Juan Jazz Quintet + 1 opened the evening, as it has done for all eight years of Jazz at the Labs. These talented musicians and singer not only donate their time to enable us to net as much income for the K-12 program as possible, but also have turned down paying gigs to perform at this event.
I have either lived or made my living down at the waterfront and, in particular, at the Port of Friday Harbor for the last seven years. In that time, I have had the great pleasure of working with and around the best harbormaster I have ever seen: Tami Hayes!
This trash site selection process has been marred by incomplete disclosure. Failure to fully disclose all traffic safety information and the increased accident rate due to moving the trash facility is morally unacceptable.
Citizens arise! Unite to help defeat the nefarious scheme to prohibit our patriotic observance of the birth of our nation on July 4. There exists in our community a well-meaning, but misguided, group: Our own fire chiefs, who have enlisted the help of our own County Council members to “save us from ourselves” by disallowing our American tradition of the discharge of “safe and sane” fireworks on July 4, beginning in 2009.
The San Juan Public Schools Foundation is so grateful for the incredible generosity of our community’s response to the Save Our Schools (SOS) Campaign. We are more than halfway toward meeting the “challenge gift” of $300,000! Now it is imperative that we raise the final $130,000 in order to match the remaining challenge gift.
