Newspaper wins top honors

Published October 17, 2018 / by Steve Berentson

Our hometown newspaper earned top honors at a recent trade conference: 1st Place in General Excellence from the Washington Newspaper Publishers Association (WNPA). Kudos to the team that brings us the Anacortes American each week! A strong community newspaper contributes to the health of the city we call home.

About Steve Berentson
A fourth generation Skagit County native who was moved kicking and screaming from this island community in 1960. I finally reclaimed an Anacortes address in 1980, and I have been in constant celebration of my return since that time. Many of us who call Anacortes home love Fidalgo Island for its natural assets: among them are rugged beaches, pristine lakes, thousands of acres of forestland and some awesome views of the Skagit Valley and surrounding islands. Another element of my love affair with this community is its people, both natives and immigrants. They will “star” in many of my journal entries.
