Watch from inside

Published March 19, 2007 / by Steve Berentson

Public improvement projects are fun to watch, but they can be disruptive to businesses, as is the case with my friends at Bellissima Trattoria Italian Restaurant on 9th Street and Commercial Avenue. My recommendation is a true win-winner: visit Bellissima and watch the city sidewalk improvement project from a warm and comfortable vantage point while enjoying a delicious meal! It must be a good idea … Mayor Dean Maxwell and a few city staffers just did it last week.

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.
