I’m dropping in tonight to get this out, and then back on Zoom from early morning till after dinner Saturday, and from morning till mid-afternoon Sunday. Have a good weekend!


The police have requested that emphasis patrols occur in our neighborhood as a result of Wednesday’s tire-slashing vandalism. Yet another car was reported on the 2200 block of Utter. At least one family lost two tires they cannot afford to replace. I’ll try to get more information and see if we can find a way to help.


I’m trying to wrap up some figurines that were my grandpa’s and could use bubblewrap. Does anyone have some to spare? Thank you! ~ Coty Hogue cotyhogue@gmail.com


I became a victim, as well, of an unauthorized opening of a Chase Checking Account through my somehow stolen ID, as quite a few neighbors and other Whatcom County Residents have to endure.

For mostly the better (but, in this case, may be the worse!) I’m not good at doing things via the web, yet, that’s where I was pointed. It has me baffled to straighten this out.

I did report it to the helpful downtown branch, but now the weight in the pit of my stomach grows. I started with the recommended credit freeze process, but can’t understand what is being asked, said or what I could do to make things even worse or, to think positively, incredible easy!

I would like to connect with a knowledgable real someone and talk about what I need to do in a way that my dated, analog brain can grasp. Full disclosure: I’m equipped with an I phone only. Help ?  ~ Max Eberhard 360.801.3249



Thanks to Linda Allen for baking and sharing more of her brother’s cookies tonight. They sure touched a lot of hearts last night.


I will bring by one jacket before 6pm this evening. It was a coat Marc used for construction work. He was in the Laborer’s Union and designed the decorations on the coat and had a sewing/embroidery shop downtown put them on for him. Digger was his nickname and he was a very active Union member. There are 2 “in memory of Marc Livingston” signs at either end of Slater Rd, as he was the one who spearheaded the roadside cleanup there. He really was a brother to all, helped many homeless and down and out folks over the years. Thanks for giving me an opportunity to share his love, ~ Piper

Rhiannon Giddens  with Francesco Turrisi – A lovely version of a beloved traditional song I used to sing to my sons. I’d tuck their names in. It’s amazing what beauty can be created with two or three simple chords and a whole lot of heart.

If you’re willing to share your phone  with me, personally, I would love that, and would not share it further without your express permission. Nor would I ever exploit it. You might put mine in your phone so if I were to phone you, you’d know it was me. I’d also suggest adding flip@openaccess.org to your contacts because that helps keep my emails from going to your junk mail.

If you want to ask me to post something, just email me. If it’s urgent, phone. If it’s a real emergency, call 911.
