Your turn to join the masses
Democracy is not only about laws being passed or protesting the president or electing state legislators. Democracy is about Janet Laurel starting a dialogue by publicly sharing her view about improving the look of Morris Street. Democracy is about the Town of La Conner inserting a flyer in our water and sewer bills inviting participation in the updating of the Town’s comprehensive plan. Democracy is writing letters to the editor on the issue important to you.

Musings -- on the editor's mind
Washingtonians love art. Not just folks from the Skagit Valley or Bellingham and not just paintings capturing mystic light.

2018 Outlook - La Conner schools are thriving
La Conner Schools are thriving. I feel so blessed to be in such an amazing school district surrounded by a caring, involved and supportive community. Thank you to everyone who is part of our success. As we look ahead to what we expect to focus on in 2018, a few themes come to mind.

La Conner now and its future
Starting a dialogue —
THE IDEAL
The face and greeting of our town are our homes, our residents, our churches and town hall. And, of course, our beloved small businesses, which give our community such pride. No box stores here! We love creativity, art, crafts, forward-thinking farmers and our progressive Swinomish neighbors, with those great hats that we so enjoy: They are creative and lyrical.

Musing -- on the editor's mind
Driving through California’s Sonoma County wine country with my brother and his wife, we weren’t tourists: we drive the main highway to their wine club membership winery. Five miles from their house, Cindy said, “this is as close as the fires came.” A half hour later Phil pointed out trees green on top and brown below, telltale sign where the fires had been. And then there were chimneys on concrete foundations, hulks of burnt out cars and banner signs thanking first responders.
