New pier progress

Published December 13, 2008 / by Steve Berentson

Dramatic progress has been made in recent weeks at Dakota Creek Industries, where a partnership between DCI and the Port of Anacortes will lead to additional shipyard space by next spring. Visible in the distance is the loading of a ship with petroleum coke, a refinery byproduct used in the smelting of aluminum.

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.
