Notes from the Island — Sept. 13

Posted September 13, 2022 at 9:00 am by

  • The Nation­al Trans­porta­tion Safe­ty Board announced yes­ter­day that the wreck­age of the de Hav­il­land DHC‑3 Otter float­plane that crashed on Sept. 6 on its way to Ren­ton from Fri­day Har­bor has been locat­ed in Mutiny Bay off Whid­bey Island.
  • Fri­day Har­bor High School’s com­mu­ni­ty projects class is brain­storm­ing ideas about com­mu­ni­ty prob­lems that its stu­dents can help solve this semes­ter. They’re ask­ing for rep­re­sen­ta­tives of com­mu­ni­ty orga­ni­za­tions to sug­gest poten­tial projects.
  • It’s game night at the Grange, from 7–10 p.m. Bring your own games, or play the games brought by oth­ers. Free drinks and pop­corn are being pro­vid­ed by The Toy Box. All are wel­come, but the orga­niz­ers ask that all minors come with an adult.
  • The San Juan Coun­ty Depart­ment of Envi­ron­men­tal Stew­ard­ship proud­ly announced that 560 pounds of com­post were gen­er­at­ed as a result of col­lec­tion efforts at the Coun­ty Fair, instead of end­ing up in a land­fill. The peo­ple respon­si­ble for those efforts include the San Juan Island Youth Con­ser­va­tion Corps, Tran­si­tion San Juan Island’s Waste Reduc­tion Team, and staff from Laut­en­bach Recycling.
  • The Sakya Kachod Chol­ing Bud­dhist retreat cen­ter is for sale for $1.85 mil­lion.
  • The Library’s Nature’s Mys­ter­ies series con­tin­ues on Zoom at 7 p.m. tomor­row. The top­ic this time around is Cli­mate and Cli­mate Change from A‑Z. Pre­sent­ed in col­lab­o­ra­tion with San Juan Island Nation­al His­tor­i­cal Park, the event will exam­ine cli­mate, weath­er, and their short- and long-term effects on the envi­ron­ment and ecosys­tems of the park.
