Posted May 14, 2022 at 6:00 am by

  • Fri­day Har­bor High School base­ball punched their tick­et to the state tour­na­ment in dra­mat­ic fash­ion on Fri­day after­noon. Gra­ham Lear­ing drove home the win­ning run on a two-strike, two-out sin­gle in the bot­tom of the sev­enth and final inning to score pinch run­ner Geof­frey Volk from sec­ond base and knock off Coupeville High School 3–2 at a neu­tral-site game in LaConner.
  • We all knew it, but the num­bers prove it — tourism com­plete­ly rebound­ed last year, with San Juan Coun­ty wel­com­ing 990,000 vis­i­tors in 2021 accord­ing to data com­piled by Tourism Eco­nom­ics. That’s a 33 per­cent increase over 2020 and iden­ti­cal to 2019. Those vis­i­tors are esti­mat­ed to have spent $267.3 mil­lion on lodg­ing, food, bev­er­age, recre­ation, retail pur­chas­es, and trans­porta­tion with­in the coun­ty last year.
  • Here’s today’s farm­ers mar­ket line­up.
