I’m sure you know how important it is to vote. But it’s also important to be an informed voter. The League of Women Voters Bellingham/Whatcom County’s nine non-partisan virtual election forums are an excellent way to see and hear the candidates speak on the issues you care about. Beginning September 30, they’ll host a separate forum for each race on your ballot. Get involved and submit your questions in advance. Can’t make it to the live forum? That’s ok! Each forum will be available online shortly after the live event through election day. Check for all the details at

I would still love to meet with as many blocks as possible before the upcoming election. I think it could help with the polarization happening right now in our country for folks on each block to meet and prepare together for earthquakes and such. We are neighbors, and we will still be neighbors no matter what happens. Here’s a chance to strengthen our ties. Learn some things we can do to care for one another during a pandemic too. It just takes one person on a block to agree to invite their neighbors to a single 90-minute zoom call. I will mentor and guide you as you invite folks. I will also provide the zoom and materials, and come facilitate. I love getting a chance to put faces on so many names I’ve come to love. ~Fl!p  Breskin 360-671-4511


I had  my truck broken into over on Williams Street and they broke the window and stole my welder. It’s a blue Millermatic 211. Someone bought stolen property and probably is unaware of it. It was sold on OfferUp, picture given to police and they are trying to track down the prowler. I can email a photo. ~ Eric Strain

Seeking someone to clean our gutters this year. About a three-hour task, a long ladder needed for part of the job. ~ Dick & Cherie Little Elm Street


My 30 year old sister is coming back to Bellingham for a month before moving back home to Amsterdam and Berlin. She is a graduate of Wellesley and the Art Institute of Chicago and a wonderful artist.

We would love to have her nearby us in the ‘hood and our two girls could get their Aunt Jess fix! Please let me know if you have something available. Cheers, ~ Kate Ferry, Williams Street

My husband, 2 kids (3 year old  and 6 month old) and I are wanting to move back to Bellingham to be closer to the grandparents – does anyone have a 3/4 bedroom rental coming available in the next few months?  We don’t have any indoor pets, but would love to bring our chickens along if possible (it’s not a dealbreaker if that’s not an option). Our budget is around $2000/month. Feel free to email me at if you have or know of anything!  Thank you! ~ Brandy Shreve
