Let’s take a peek at things ’round here:
• Hey, remember that cat who was lost? Nia reports he came home:
Ian, Thank you so much for your help and concern about my lost cat, Poster. He must have put his kitty helmet on before jumping out of a car speeding down Roche Harbor Road at 5am! I walked that road, kitty treats in hand, three times! He walked home untold miles, up our back country lane with nary a scratch. He’s not sharing his adventure story though. That’s ok, I’m just so thankful to have him back!

• Hey, can you help Molly? She needs a place:
EMERGENCY HOUSING NEEDED. Due to unexpected circumstances, I must find a new place to live by October 26. My family includes a horse, lama, 2 cats and my dog, Xena.
Caretaking a farm would be my first choice. I would need to trade work for rent. I could also trade computer work for my rent. I have lots of experience working on farms, especially horse farms. I am in excellent physical condition and love working outdoors. My animals are all well trained and a joy to be with.
If you have a temporary or permanent solution for our homelessness, please call me at 378.9671 or email me at molly (at) rockisland.com.
• Lee Sturdivant reports there’s a meet & greet today at Democratic HQ at Democracy Corner:
State Senator Kevin Ranker will be in Friday Harbor to take questions from island residents on Tuesday, October 16 at 4pm. It is part of the continuing San Juan Democratic Party’s Q&A series at Democracy Corner, next to the Garden Path Café.
Ranker, who is running for his second term as state senator, is chair of the Senate Energy, Natural Resources & Marine Waters Committee, and can expect questions from islanders on the possibilities of increased shipping in local waters should the Cherry Point coal port become a reality. Senator Ranker also serves on the transportation committee, which deals with local ferry service. He lived for many years on San Juan Island and now resides with his family on Orcas Island.
