Websites for Tesoro fire victims Gumbel and Janz
>Two men, Lew Janz of Anacortes and Matthew “Matt” Gumbel of Oak Harbor, remain at Harborview Medical Center in the wake of last week’s fire at Tesoro Refinery in Anacortes. Both sustained life threatening injuries in the incident that resulted in the death of five co-workers. Websites have been established to provide status updates and opportunity to share messages. It is “CaringBridge.org, Connecting Family and Friends When Health Matters Most.” Notes to either man can also be sent to Tesoro Refinery, PO Box 700, Anacortes, WA, 98221. Those notes will be passed on. http://www.caringbridge.org/visit/mattgumbel http://www.caringbridge.org/visit/lewjanz
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.
