Q&A with the author of ‘Spill’

Imagine that a tanker crashes off Turn Point on Stuart Island; oil is gushing into the waters and a pod of Southern resident orcas are swimming straight into it. An oil spill in San Juan County is the stuff of nightmares for islanders. Fortunately, this time it is fiction. The book "Spill," written by David Anderson, is an action-packed tale that features local organizations like the Center for Whale Research, Islands Oil Spill Association, The Whale Museum and Orca Network, based out of Whidbey Island. Anderson, a retired veterinarian, served on the board of Orca Network, as well as serving four years as a governor appointee on Washington's Oil Spill Prevention Task Force. He will have a book reading on Aug. 31, time to be announced, at the San Juan Island Library, in an event co-sponsored by Griffin Bay Books.

Survivors speak out against sex crimes

He was an older man and Susan had just turned 18. After he started physically and sexually assaulting her, she was ashamed and afraid that the community would not stand by her if she left him. When she thought he would actually kill her – seven years into their relationship – she ran away with nothing but a few clothes. She was free from bodily harm, but she had to face another obstacle: the people who did not believe her.
