LaConner sculptor Andries Breedt (center, blue shirt) answers questions regarding his art piece titled “The Leaking Vase.” The artist, who donated his work to the City of Anacortes, was honored Friday evening at an official dedication of the N Avenue Park sculpture. The sculpture was created to draw attention to the plight of the Northwest sea star, under attack by a deadly and as yet undetermined source.

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.
