I think of them as “Head Rangers,” but technically the chief executive officer at Deception Pass State Park operates under the title of “Manager.” All past and present managers were honored this year with a large “plaque” posted in front of the main park office on Highway 20. Creation of the sign and an accompanying picnic table are part of a year-long celebration of the renowned park’s Centennial celebration.
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.
