  12. Permits for pot farm rejectedRead the original story w/Photo

    Dec 19, 2014 | Journal of the San Juans

    While the County Council wrestles over whether--or what--rules should apply to marijuana cultivation, the county hearing examiner drew a line in the regulatory sand Dec. 10, sending a determination of non-significance back for another round of review and revoking a building permit for a marijuana grow operation on San Juan Island's west side.

In fact, it's more akin to business as usual at Orcas Island's Deer Harbor Boatworks, where, over the course of two days, Nov. 13-14, Durland and crew demolished five boats whose owners had surrendered various vessels they could no longer maintain or dispose of themselves to the grindstone of the state-funded voluntary turn-in program coordinated by San Juan County's derelict vessel removal program.
