The entire country, every citizen, has been forced to confront national politics. This issue’s front-page government shutdown counter has flipped to 26 from last week’s 19. The paper is prepared to place day 33 on next week’s front page. That is not our choice. It is reporting the facts.


La Conner-Whitney Road water main project almost done
ALMOST DONE – The water main construction project along La Conner Whitney Road is way past the stage this photo captured Jan. 7. If the weather holds, or the crew moves fast, they will finish with paving, striping and cleaning up after themselves by the end of the week.        – Photo by Ken Stern

La Conner Public Works Director Brian Lease said this week that primary construction work on the new 16-inch main, which runs along the west side of La Conner-Whitney Road, has been completed. Paving, roadway striping and general clean-up work was scheduled this week, he said.
Motorists driving north from La Conner have been detoured east onto McLean Road to Best Road during the course of the project.
The new main, about 8,000 feet in length, replaces a failed eight-inch line and a parallel 14-inch line servicing La Conner and Shelter Bay that can no longer meet peak demand and fire flow requirements.
