Evening Magazine

Published August 30, 2007 / by Steve Berentson

John Curley and Darrell Benedict of King5 TV’s Evening Magazine are in Anacortes today taping elements of the program for Friday night (August 31). In addition to promotion of the Anacortes Jazz Festival, the program will include a feature on historic Anacortes Marine Supply and Hardware. I caught up with Curley (left) preparing to interview store owner Steve Demopoulos (center). Star of the moment was the shop mascot “Cat II,” (also known as “Fang”), whose eccentric nature was described by Rick Sohn. Look for the Anacortes-based Evening Magazine segment Friday night.

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.
