In the news

Published February 14, 2011 / by Steve Berentson

High winds brought a KING 5 television crew to Anacortes early Monday morning. A morning broadcast by reporter Teresa Yuan cited gusts of 29 mph, recorded at the Anacortes Middle School weather center. In addition to downtown shots including the arch over Commercial Avenue, one of Yuan’s live reports featured Ed Brown, who was headed for Lopez Island with mail. Valentine’s Day exposure for our wonderful island community. You’re welcome any time, KING 5!

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.
