Sun sets on Election Day

Published November 8, 2005 / by Steve Berentson

Just a few hours remain in the day for those hoping to cast ballots on Election Day 2005. This photograph was taken inside the lobby of the City Library, where voters dropped off their mail ballots. Many candidates and supporters will watch election returns Tuesday night from the Gere-a-Deli restaurant in downtown Anacortes.

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.
