On behalf of Hearts and Hands, I’d like to thank the artists at the Holiday Artisan’s Faire and all the people who supported our local artists at the Odd Fellows Hall.
When are we going to get some street lights in Eastsound? This weekend the Artisan’s Faire at the Odd Fellows Hall was a charming event while the street outside, filled with cars and pedestrians and no sidewalks, was black as a coal bin. It is dangerous.
On Friday evening, Nov. 28, I had items stolen from my car during an Orcas Center program. One week later, I have all the items again in my possession, thanks to islanders who spotted them while going about their own business.
With very mixed feelings my husband Nick and I have decided to leave Orcas. My last day of work at the Orcas Family Health Center will be Jan. 2.
We would like to take a minute and thank Geddes at Ship Bay, Ron at Orcas Village Store, Richard at West Sound Café and John at Roses for their contributions to the Oddfellows Annual Thanksgiving Dinner.
As a non-citizen, a visitor to your country if you will, even as a resident for over fifteen years, it has ever been my dream to find somewhere intrinsically beautiful, with a wonderfully temperate climate and welcoming residents.
If residents in San Juan County think the noise from Navy jets is a serious problem, get ready for what’s coming up.
Two recent art exhibitions at the Orcas Center are deserving of commentary. In October, “EDGE,” an invitational curated by Jeffrey Ludwig, presented a number of surprising works by local artists that I found to be exceptional.
Dorothy Gamble Hungar – activist, funny lady, friend and neighbor – passed away recently after a long stay in the Friday Harbor nursing home.
A few weeks ago the Sounder reported on a meeting called by Councilman Hughes to describe pending changes to the Eastsound Subarea Plan. Missing from the Sounder report was any description of the proposed rezoning of the Seaview/Mt. View neighborhood just west of the airport.
We would like to thank the community for the very generous support of the annual clothing bank and the mission trip garage sale. Without your generous donations and the many helping hands. These events would not be possible!
I wish to express my praise and gratitude for Undersheriff Bruce Distler’s years of service for our community. I met Bruce years ago as a prosecutor and have continued to work with him as a private attorney.
