The mild weather of Bellingham also allows for day trips to nearby Lummi Island, giving students time to relax while surrounded by nature.

Suicide, it is said, is a permanent solution to a temporary problem. In 2003, Garrett Lee Smith took that permanent solution. Thirteen years later the effects are being felt in the continued grief of his parents – and the work they’ve done to prevent other families from suffering as they have. Garrett Lee Smith was the son of Gordon Smith, a U.S. Senator from 1997 to 2009. Garrett, a college student, had struggled a bit with reading disabilities, and more seriously, just before his death, with several bouts of depression.

If musical theater were a sport, the 5th Avenue Theatre Awards competition would be the state tournament for high school drama kids. Or, better yet, let's call the 5th Avenue awards the state high school Tony awards. Snohomish County schools tend to do well, and this year was no exception. And even better than usual for Arlington High School.

Eric Heisey learned to read by looking at bird field guides. So, not only could he read well by age 6, he could readily identify many birds. “I vividly remember being in Trout Lake when I was this age, and being able to identify birds like Red Crossbill and Evening Grosbeak,” Heisey said in an email. The recent Sunnyside High School graduate can’t say for sure when he first became interested in birds, but that makes perfect sense. It’s as if birding has been part of his life from the very beginning — before it began, even.

The regulation of Canada's broadcasting sector by the CRTC is at a crossroads. Technological change, especially the proliferation of streaming video over the Internet, or so-called over-the-top (OTT) broadcasting, is seriously challenging the viability of the regulatory model that's been in place for decades. The government has recognized the challenges posed by ongoing technological developments in the recent call by Canada's heritage minister for a full review of the federal government's cultural policies with the goal of adapting to the digital age. Consultations are expected to begin this summer.
