Check out this brief Evening Magazine feature on AHS alum Darrell Benedict, who retired a year ago after roughly four decades of work as a cameraman at KING 5, his final years with Evening Magazine. Benedict has added digital photography to a list of retirement pastimes that include kayaking, biking and windsurfing. This photo was taken a couple of years back when Darrell visited Anacortes with Evening Magazine host Meeghan Black.
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.
