The otter destruction of First Street
Writer Adrian Sharpe has the story on who caused sections of downtown La Conner sidewalk to be torn out and left the town and store owners with hefty repair bills. Don't be fooled by the cuteness of the vandalism suspect in the mugshot. 

Water Bills
We picked apart the town's water bills and detailed the increases. (We don't make too many friends in government by doing this, but we figured residents would want to know what's coming in the mail next month.)

Please take the survey
Alex is leaving the reader survey up through the end of the month. We'll have a story on what we learn in early February. 
Please let us know what we do right and what we should be doing better.
The button to the 10 question survey is to the right of this page.

Students in La Conner School District participated in the Elk’s Hoop Shoot event open to kids eight to 13 years old. La Conner’s winners are, on top Andre Knutson, and from left in the middle Emily Montoya and Katie Watkins and at the base, Kyla Fast, Khalid Al-Dossari and Cole Ellis. 

From the Police Blotter:
12:48 p.m.: Explosive - A report of a possible explosive floating in the water near Pioneer Point ended with deputies determining that it was only a seal bomb, a device used by fishers to scare seals away from fishing nets. No sign of malicious intent was found. 

Read it all in today's paper, in the red quarter-gobbling news racks and on shelves at both gas stations, the drug store, the liquor store and book store. Or stop in at the office on your way back from lunch at the Station House and grab a copy.
