Congratulations to the primary winners
Community Events, September 2016
Thank you for being a "news" paper. Serious news should be printed in the proper place including the front page. The paper should be primarily for adults not children.
I wanted to tell you all how upset our family was at finding such disturbing news on the front cover of our paper. I know it is news but we have reading aged children in the house and would appreciate that kind of sensationalistic journalism being buried in the paper or on the back. This goes for last issue as well as this current issue. This is not the first time we have noticed this kind of reporting being favored over more family oriented stories. Sad to say that if this is the way the paper is going to be run then we will just have to ban it from being placed in our P.O. Box. Thanks for your time.
I am delighted to announce that The Hamlet House fundraiser on Sept. 3 exceeded its goal of raising $50,000, thanks to the generosity of our amazing community and the matching offer. The good will and enthusiasm expressed by those who attended made for an evening long to be remembered. I offer my personal thanks to Becky Smith, Heather Arps, Jim Orcutt and Becky Presley who planned the Gala and to all those who contributed in so many ways to its success.
As the only licensed early learning center on Lopez Island, the Lopez Children's Center provides a vital resource for parents of young children. Without our facility providing safe, affordable care, many families would not be able to work the two (or more) jobs that enable them to stay here.
