The Vashon Mariner


February 11, 1998

I was one of those islanders handed the bogus Public Health Notice about Robert and Stacy Young's animal sanctuary Sunday, Feb. 1.

As I was in a hurry to get to "My Fair Lady," I didn't even glance at it.

Hours later, still humming tunes from that marvelous production, I came across the wretched paper.

What an abrupt change of mood. Not even knowing at the time the true situation of the Youngs, I spotted misinformation right and left.

Although I am not a native islander, I've certainly lived here long enough to know that no matter how passionately we may feel about an issue, no matter how desperately we might want to bring attention to it, we would never resort to tactics using the cloak of anonymity.

I commend Jolene Lamb for confronting the person passing out the fliers.

Real Vashon Islanders who give you information they care about put their name and telephone on it and usually invite you to a meeting.

I say without clear identification of the author or authors -- put it in the garbage where it belongs.

-- Jennie Hodgson, member of the Vashon School Board
