Communist in the News

Recently at a small gathering of friends, the subject of Communist China came up. One of the participants was gushing with enthusiasm for the Communist government and economy. Speaking to the great progress Communism was making for their citizens. My jaw dropped and thankfully the subject as well.

Dear San Juan County Friends and Neighbors,Planning Commission Meeting this Friday

CSA will host coffee and goodies, Friday morning at 7:30 AM, in the Grange Hall at 152 North First Street (next to the American Legion) in Friday Harbor for CSA neighbors and friends from all islands to gather prior to the Planning Commission (PC) meeting. We plan to depart for the Council Chambers at 55 Second Street in time to attend the 8:45 AM meeting, where PC deliberations will continue on the Wetland Section of the CAO. The Grange Hall will be open again at either the conclusion of the PC deliberations or over the lunch hour (whichever occurs first) for a question and answer period.

Please make every attempt to make this meeting! Our turnout for the March 6 meeting was worthy of attention, but it appears that our comments have been glossed over or ignored by the PC in their deliberations. We believe it is important for us all to be seen and heard from again. After Friday’s meeting, there will not be an opportunity for any more public comments until the County Council opens the Wetland Section for discussion.

Please make a note that the date of the Council’s first discussion of the Wetland Section has been tentatively set for 1:00 PM, Monday, April 16. The date for the Council’s public hearing has not yet been set.  We will keep you posted of the date as it becomes available.
