Week of June 9th

What can be found in this week's paper:

Boys & Girls Club closing for summer - Alexander Kramer
The grade books will be closing soon with the approach of summer, and so will the local Boys & Girls Club due to a lack of funding. "The La Conner Boys and Girls Club has a budget of $100,000 for the year, which allows us to stay open for four days a week, but only during school," said Kim Grams, the La Conner branch's executive director.

Congratulations, La Conner 2010 Seniors!
This week is the Graduation issue, and on the back are all the senior photos, as well as the local businesses that send their support.

The festrering fire fiasco - Sandy Stokes
Fire District 13 and the Town of La Conner have been sending letters back and forth, and it seems they've both dug in their heels. The town, which oversees La Conner Volunteer Fire Department and Fire District 13, are co-owners of the La Conner fire station near the roundabout on Chilberg Road, just east of town. In the most recent letter volley, the Town Council reject Fire District 13's request to amend their operating agreement concerning the fire station, and then the Firs District 13 commission gave six months notice it was cancelling the agreement.
