A team of dignitaries led by Island Hospital CEO Vince Oliver (hat off) had some fun Thursday at a groundbreaking ceremony marking the start of a dramatic construction project at the Anacortes health and medical facility. See project details at www.islandhospital.org.

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.
