The blunted rays of flannel-gray February daylight melt into the mirror-still harbor, unbroken sky-gray and harbor-gray split by a jagged band of misty black firs and skeleton maples on the far shore.
Community Events, March 2014
When The Beachcomber first began to report on potential legal marijuana businesses on Vashon, we spoke with Shango Los, an islander attempting to gain traction with his new group, the Vashon Island Marijuana Entrepreneurs Alliance
The ferry proposal we learned of last week is drastically different than the one first proposed by the state last year. Rather than overhauling the north-end schedule, the new proposal seems to reflect the community’s desire for even better service on the triangle route, which has frequent delays. We hope state lawmakers will now follow suit and approve the funds that will make this plan work.
At the Vashon Park District, we are past the election and have our new commissioners on board, as of Jan. 1. Some things are the same: We still have wonderful parks, and we have islanders participating in all kinds of active sports, including hiking, soccer, horseback riding, softball and skateboarding. And some things are different: We have a refined and redesigned accounting system, a general manager with a professional background in finance; we are playing on some bright new ball fields; we have survey results that tell us what you think, and we have two new commissioners, Scott Harvey and Doug Ostrom. Thanks for re-electing me, as well
It’s clear that a Vashon Town Plan plan change being considered by the county would be good for a group of three investors hoping to manufacture edible marijuana products on Vashon.
