We're in for a dry spell...
Homeport Liquor will close on Saturday, May 5 – two weeks earlier than originally planned.
As one of 163 contract liquor stores, the La Conner Homeport Liquor’s inventory is all owned by the state, which will be out of the liquor business May 31, since voters approved Initiative 1183 in November.
For La Conner, there will be no retail liquor available in town for more than three weeks, until at least June 1, when Pioneer Market expects to start carrying spirits in addition to the beer and wine already available there. In today's paper!

From the Police Blotter
3:30 p.m.: Tourist teasing – The Sheriffs Office received a report of two fellows hiding in the bushes near the area where tulip buses stop at the intersection of South First Street and Washington Ave. in La Conner. They guys were yelling and whistling at the visitors, so the deputy picked them up and  transported them away from town.
