Dear Journal of the San Juan Islands reader,

We are proud to have been your newspaper since 1906.

We have brought home numerous awards from the Washington Newspaper Publishers Association for our coverage of news and the arts, website reporting and editorial writing.

The Journal is delivered every Wednesday to mailboxes on San Juan, Orcas and Lopez as well as to off-island readers.

We are supported in part by voluntary subscriptions. If you have already subscribed, we thank you. If you haven’t, please consider subscribing today. Your subscription helps pay for printing and mailing costs.

The Journal is a printed record of the local events and decisions that affect our lives. We also keep you updated daily via Facebook, Twitter and No need to wait for election results or breaking news that you need or want now. That’s our job – to keep you informed when you need it most.
