Avid AHS Seahawks basketball fans are packing their bags! AHS chalked up a 63-54 win over River Ridge Friday night in a Class 2A State Tournament opener at Tumwater High School, moving the Hawks into the eight-team finals at the Yakima Valley SunDome. Play starts Thursday afternoon against Kingston. This photograph was taken during the Hawks’ last home game.
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.
