Talk about indignity! This young La Conner turkey rode to Arlington in a dog carrier in a dog catcher truck! He's having a happier day, today, as a pampered resident at Farmer Brown's Christmas Tree Farm.
A boardwalk on the waterfront
La Conner town officials are moving quickly to get plans and permits ready to construct a 2,000 to 3,000 foot long boardwalk along the waterfront.Residents can stop in at Town Hall to see the artist's renditions of the boardwalk, which is estimated to cost around $3.5 million.The town is already promoting the idea with state, county and federal agencies to put La Conner at the head of the line when government entities start funding economic development plans, perhaps as early as next year.Besides providing jobs during its construction, a boardwalk would revitalize the tourism-dependent downtown with a pedestrian "Main Street" to draw tourists past the shops and restaurants on the waterfront.

From the Police Blotter:
8:33 a.m.: Fraud – Someone went door-to-door selling halibut, but a woman on State Street in La Conner who bought some said the halibut turned out to be chicken. No suspects have been located.
