Notes from the Island — Aug. 3

Posted August 3, 2022 at 8:00 am by

  • It was tough head­ing to or from the island yes­ter­day evening, as all sail­ings for the M/V Samish were can­celled from the 4:45 p.m. Ana­cortes depar­ture onward. The image above is the view from the upper wait­ing lanes at 8:45 p.m., about 15 min­utes before the arrival of the late-run­ning boat that was divert­ed from its reg­u­lar sail­ing to Lopez Island to help keep strand­ed San Juan Island trav­el­ers moving.
  • Here are the results from yes­ter­day’s pri­ma­ry elec­tion for San Juan Coun­ty. Vot­er turnout was 30.6 per­cent — the tenth-high­est turnout rate among Wash­ing­ton’s 39 counties.
  • The Ani­mal Pro­tec­tion Soci­ety has three recent­ly arrived senior dogs avail­able for adop­tion.
  • There’s a mul­ti-fam­i­ly estate and garage sale tak­ing place on Sat­ur­day from 9 a.m. to 2 p.m. at 4859 West­side Road.
  • Here are the week’s spe­cials at Mar­ket Place and Kings.
  • Final­ly, a few words from Fran­cie Hansen: “Are you get­ting ready for the Trash­ion Fash­ion Show at the San Juan Coun­ty Fair? It’s on Sat­ur­day, August 20th — a Main Stage event start­ing at 5:15 p.m. Fran­cie Hansen is excit­ed to see you there! For those who want to be in the show, infor­ma­tion is avail­able online at, or you can stop by the Fair office.” Fran­cie says, “Get over your­self, get out of your own way! Have a fab­u­lous time on the run­way, and be a STAR! This is the place to be!”
