Protecting Puget Sound
The Navy is again moving full steam ahead to expand operations in Puget Sound, and indeed, along the Pacific coast from Alaska to California. Its Supplemental Environmental Impact Statement shows a disregard for the Sound’s Southern Resident Killer Whale populations, other marine wildlife and humans committed to the health of these animal populations.

Schools need strong captain
I am concerned. To use the metaphor of a F/V (fishing vessel), our La Conner School District is currently running like a boat whose crew and Captain are misaligned, this of course quite dangerous on many levels.

Goal reached: New La Conner library funded
Wow, it is done: The $3.74 million dollars to build a new library in La Conner has been raised. By the end of 2021 a new library will gleam from 520 Morris Street, anchoring the east end of town for decades to come. This is a very good thing. It is also a momentous accomplishment for a library district with a population of some 4,800 people. We are the little community that could, and we did.

The Kirsch property: Blessing or curse?
The Kirsch property has come back on the agenda for the Mayor and Council. This property has been on and off the agenda for several years now. There are several issues that surround this property that lead to significant misunderstandings.
Its role in public access has changed over the years. It is important for everyone (who cares about it) to be honest about the importance of that property in context to its ownership.

School board - unions meeting a start
I wanted to write something light, this being the first week of summer. Alas.
Observers and participants agree that tempers are running high, some people are hurt, others are wounded and discord rifts the La Conner School District.
If only the board of directors and administration’s biggest problem was 12 hours a day of way too loud drumming and horns from a marching band rental.
To name the elephant in the room: the vast majority of school staff, teachers and support employees, want Superintendent Whitney Meissner gone.
