One of my favorite stories is that of Jonah. I don’t know whether it literally happened or whether it is a parable, but in the story of Jonah he is asked by God to go preach to Nineveh. He doesn’t want to. God must all but force him to do it. Jonah just wants to know why somebody else can’t do it.
The Sounder and Islands Weekly published a piece about the national monument issue in San Juan County. As you may know, President Trump signed an executive order requiring a review of National Monument status. This has always been a major issue in this county.
Here is the coverage of the issue by the Sounder (or Islands Weekly). There is also a letter about it.
As I have been announcing for a few weeks, the BLM advisory committee is taking applications. Why not give it a try? It could save us all some aggravation.
Michelle Loftus wrote a piece about the SJCPHD #1, here. Full disclosure, I work at SJCPHD#1, so I cannot comment one way or another. But those who have comments one way or another are welcome to submit them.
SAFE San Juan is trying to raise money. Journal Reports.
King County Dems are being sued by the state attorney general over late reporting of donations. Makes me glad we have Treasurer Alex Gavora. Seattle Times.

Interesting reasearch on the relative number of conservatives and liberals in the United States. Gallup poll.
The Sounder published a letter to the editor by a local man who lost a relative and had the police come tell him. It was nice to see praise for those who put their lives on the line for us. Sounder Reports.

The liberal response to the county affordable housing crisis is to limit access to lodging for tourism rather than improve supply.
