Visit this link to read an update on the new Skagit County Jail, scheduled to open two years from now. Work begins any day on the site, just south of downtown Mount Vernon at the former Truck City. The project is funded by a tax increase approved by voters in August 2013. http://www.skagitcounty.net/Home/Documents/Newsletter/2015_3.pdf
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.
