I was saddened this morning to read about the death of Bob Hart, a Skagit native whose public service included election to the Skagit County Board of Commissioners representing District One. Through mutual friend Diane Erholm, I worked on Bob’s first campaign in 1992. This photo was taken in the one-time commissioners’ meeting room in the downtown county administration building. Bob died Sunday, November 4 at age 65. My condolences to his family.
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.
