School Board leadership needed
Governing is hard. In the middle of governance are policy making and administration of that policy and direct responsibility for the executive staff of the organization, here the La Conner School District’s. For a school district’s board of directors, governing starts with a personal vision as well as endorsement of the district’s vision. Each director starts with an election – or an appointment until an election. School board directors represent the district’s residents, overseeing the school system for them.

Remembrance of Hope Island Fire Department
Just imagine yourself sitting on a bench in front of an old fire station with a bunch of older men and women reminiscing about the “old days” in the “department.” That’s about what it feels like to read Roy Horn’s new book, “The Story of the Men and Women of the Hope Island Fire Department 1958-2002.”

It was in the room over the garage we called the porch: an exterior door led to it and the windows were opened by metal turn knobs.

Serving the nation, protecting the country
At this time of year, we remember and honor our war dead, especially those who have died in vain on various far flung shores.
Our military personnel have been in too many battles in too many places over too many decades of our country’s history.

Process worth more than property
Maybe the hardest thing for elected officials to hear is that they are wrong. That is especially difficult to take when strong, passionate criticisms are made at council meetings by long time neighbors and friends. Who would enjoy that?
Our council members and mayor go into office to improve their community. They spend long hours in that effort. They make decisions for the long term benefit of the town. They don’t get thanked enough.
