Newspaper needs to inspire

Happy New Year?

There wasn’t much to be happy about in the first Beachcomber issue of 2019. How about greeting us with some uplifting stories to balance the holiday ferry woes and smokey views of the Space Needle?

Our island is full of amazing people doing courageous things. Please do not contribute to the depressing amount of commentary that surrounds us daily. Inspire us. Make us laugh like Brian Brown with his take on “Baby, It’s Damp Outside.”

Happy 2019!
