In addition to maintenance and repair work, crews at Dakota Creek Industries (DCI) had a busy year with new construction. Pictured here are two tugboats currently being built at the downtown Anacortes shipyard. The Anacortes American reports that work is under way on six 90-foot U.S. Navy tugboats, which are expected to be completed by August 2021 on an $80 million contract. Here’s to a busy 2020 for a great local employer!
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.
