The San Juan Update has a new own­er! I am very hap­py to intro­duce the new Owner/Editor of the San Juan Update to you — Jeff Arnim.

Jeff is cur­rent­ly work­ing on a post to intro­duce him­self and fam­i­ly to you — that should be pub­lished here with­in a few days I think, but in the mean­time I just want­ed to let every­one know that the San Juan Update will continue.

This is very good news for me — I think he will be a great fit for The Update, and car­ry on the tra­di­tion start­ed by Ian Bying­ton and con­tin­ued by me, of bring­ing upbeat, refresh­ing news and infor­ma­tion to the peo­ple of San Juan Island.

Wel­come Jeff!

  6. YAY, WHEW, WOW!! soooo sooo grate­ful!! thank you both!! I think the angels were in the mix, Tim so deserves his time off, and like any well cod­dled busi­ness, that so many depend on, you hate to see it just go away; we have already lost too many; we need and depend on update for human news, real visu­als and just a place to find out what we need to know beyond nuts and bolts news, thank you so much; Now Shan­non and Tim can sigh and leave free, tru­ly! Pam
