SO(P)S: Save Our Postal Service
The post office – the postal service – is an institution as important and rooted in our community as the school system or the fire department, but different, too. It touches every person’s life, probably every day. Funded by the federal government, it costs us next to nothing. The postage we pay for, whether to mail an envelope across town or a box around the world, is subsidized; the expense is much more than we are charged.

Musings
You are holding issue 151 of the Weekly News under my stewardship. In six weeks, on July 1, my fourth year of owning the La Conner Weekly News begins. 
This is the second six page issue in your hands. Until last week, for 149 issues, it has been at least eight pages. The goal has been to increase the page count to 10 and 12 pages consistently, bringing you added coverage of the greater La Conner area. There have been 10 page editions on an occasional basis the past three years, always because of additional ads, often because of more legal notices.

1 and 2 are not halfway to 4
Patience. That word and theme has been stressed many times in editorials since mid-March. Mid-March. That was two months ago. How patient we have been these last two months. Hopefully, that has become habit.

A healthy debate on the health of our community
Poor Jay Inslee. Washington’s governor has his hands full with a solid portion of the state’s population, up to one-third, wanting to get back to the business of earning a living. The job loss in the last two months has been unprecedented, record breaking, huge.

Musings - on the editor's mind
We all have touchstone moments in our lives, events that affect and shape us and that we carry from our youthful past till the day we die. That defines the term epoch, even if the tragic circumstance occurred at a distance. The shootings at Kent State University on May 4, 1970, “four dead in Ohio” and another nine wounded, is one of my moments.

Save Pleasant Ridge school
In this unprecedented time, when a virus seems to be attacking the whole world, it is certainly a challenge to gather interest in an old building. This old building though, is no ordinary structure but a place indigenous to the history of our valley and its pioneers. I am referring to the Pleasant Ridge Schoolhouse which according to the April 22 Weekly News is scheduled to be razed.
