Your contribution to La Conner's affordable housing
A primary theme at last week’s joint Town Council-Planning Commission meeting was housing – densifying, increasing the housing stock and getting more units on lots. The subtext in the discussion was affordable housing: how to get folks on grocery and school employee wages into some of those additional La Conner homes.

Grant nature rights
I am concerned with the future of our community, especially in regard to sea level rise. Given the science regarding climate change it seems likely that in as few as 100 years sea levels will have risen around 3 ft at a minimum and it is my understanding that those estimates are now considered to be conservative.

"A Home for All God's Children"
This letter is a response to the question many people are asking me: “Pastor, what’s going to happen to your Methodist Church?” Let me just say first: God is always ready for us to work for change, to invite diversity and look forward to new seasons in the life of the church. But I would like to offer a longer response about the future of the United Methodist Church during this Christian season of Lent and Easter.

New Library depends on our local funding
Your donations – our collective contributions – open the new library. Two years ago a new La Conner Regional Library was a gleam in the eyes of a few people. A year ago the state legislature provided $500,000, a bet that the total $3.74 million needed for construction would be raised by June 2019. It wasn’t, but now the state is about to double down, adding another $720,000 and extending the deadline for using the first appropriation.

Open Pioneer Park bathrooms possible
Your Pioneer Park in La Conner on the hill overlooking the canal is beautiful. I live in Bellingham and I like to drive down and sit and read on the bluff above the water and enjoy the park and its trees.
