Bolting through Ebey’s Landing

  • Sep 7, 2013 at 10:00AM

Two race car drivers sped through one of the most picturesque parts of Ebey’s Landing in a flash. Justin Bell and Townsend Bell (no relation) spent a quiet Wednesday afternoon last week racing a Lexus IS 350 FSPORT. They raced down Ebey Road, drifted through a hair-pin turn onto Hill Road near the bluff trail, regained speed as they whizzed by the beach before negotiating a series of curves on the narrow road in the woods before speeding past a historic, red barn located just outside the treeline. As for who won? Tune in to “Shut up and Drive” to find out. The show featuring Ebey’s Landing airs at noon, Sunday, Sept. 29. on Fox Sports 1.

Can’t we all just go to a Potlach and forget differences? | Rockin' a Hard Place

  • Sep 9, 2013 at 9:00AM

Long before any of us set foot here, our Rock was shared by at least four nations. Some Snohomish spent the summers on South Whidbey. Branches of the Skagits lived in the center and the north. And a Clallam band lived on the west end of Ebey’s Prairie. It was an un-United Nations. There was a lot of fussin’ and feudin’.

As soon as it was over, they went back to fussin’ and feudin’ again.
