The Editor:
Good article on Spooner Creek! We will support a fund to help with porta-toilets. We should also ask the county council to review unnecessary land use regulations which block private initiative.
It is the sad truth, if current laws were enforced, very little we have in our communities, historic structures or cities, would exist.

The Editor:
A huge “thank you” to all who attended Foodstock Feed the Animals at Funland Theater on June 26. Our musical festival was a lot of fun while raising much-needed funds for Whatcom Humane Society, The Grey Muzzle Organization and Whatcom Alternative Humane Society.
With the generous talents of Josh Bradford of Simple Shelter and the donation of time and equipment from sound and light man Jesse Pennoyer, the show was a huge success. Without the help of Brian White, DJ Duncan and Dylan Morrison, whose hard work and labor getting the venue ready, we could not have done this without you!
We had so many wonderful volunteers we wish to thank and acknowledge each of you for your unselfish contributions to the venue. Donations literally poured in from Birch Bay, Lynden, Blaine, Ferndale and Bellingham!
We had generous hearts calling and e-mailing us each day to find out what we needed. Additionally, we are grateful to Modern Woodmen who will be matching up to $500 in donations.
We are still taking monetary donations until July 5 at Bay Café at 7608 Birch Bay Drive, Blaine, WA 98230.
Also, we will be busy planning Foodstock 2011, and for those of you who would like to participate, please e-mail us at foodstock_feedtheanimals@yahoo.com or www.baycafeatbirchbay.com.
