If an off-island company’s plans pan out, the K2 building could one day hold a large marijuana growing operation.

Vashon will kick off the holiday season this weekend with activities for all ages.
Over the years, Vashon Island Audubon President Randy Smith has gotten phone calls from birders wondering how they could snag a copy of Ed Swan’s book, “The Birds of Vashon Island.” Printed in 2005, all 750 books sold quickly, and it was a rare day that a used copy appeared on a bookstore shelf.
After a local farmer’s barn burned to the ground in a large fire that also destroyed thousands of dollars of tools and equipment, islanders turned out in droves to help the longtime Vashon man handle the scene left behind.
Five months after the Franciscan Health System took ownership of the Vashon Health Center, Franciscan representatives say that clinic upgrades are planned and a patient advisory council has formed, while some islanders continue to be concerned about possible limits to care because of the Franciscan’s Catholic affiliation.
