There are many reasons we are lucky to live in this beautiful spot on the planet but one that sometimes goes unnoticed are the many hardworking, nonprofit groups that go about fulfilling their missions, quietly and with little fanfare. These groups provide a variety of services that we all benefit from at some time or another. Their missions are diverse and important. They protect our children, elderly, animals and environment. They support our schools, the arts and health care. They provide lifetime learning on a multitude of subjects, complete historic preservation and are responsible for the many unique events in our community. They feed our hungry, protect the abused, provide healthy and safe activities for our youth and keep our town beautiful. All of these nonprofits get their work done with volunteers, giving of their time and talents, to support the people and things that are important to them.

Barely more than a year ago, shocked Washingtonians grieved the horrific deaths by a gunman on a June morning at Café Racer in Seattle’s Ravenna neighborhood. Sadly not Puget Sound’s first mass shooting tragedy — the Jewish Federation attack — is still a vivid reminder of guns in in the wrong hands. Following the savage shooting that killed 20 children and six educators at Sandy Hook Elementary School in Newtown, Conn. in December, polls show the overwhelming majority of citizens in our state want reasonable public safety protection with universal background checks required for all gun sales.

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.

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’. But every once in a while a Big Chief would call all the Rock nations together for a potlatch, where they spent days drinking, eating and making merry in a cedar long house. As soon as it was over, they went back to fussin’ and feudin’ again.
