In the March 2016 Print EditionFeb 29, 2016 06:00AM ● By Pamela Johnson
As I compiled the March issue of the Bellingham Bulletin, I was struck by the extremes I encountered: of good news (Plante wins a grammy) and the extremes of bad news (the deaths of two of our residents, one who had lived a full life and one who had barely begun adulthood). To the Plant family, we offer congratulations. To the families of Florence McLaughlin and Nick Penza, we offer our sincerest condolences.
As always there’s a lot to read in this issue of the Bulletin, so grab a cup of coffee or tea or Red Bull, whatever you beverage of choice may be and have a seat. Below are some highlights of this issue, or simply scroll down below them and click on the newspaper icon to jump right in to the PDF file of the March print edition. And, of course, enjoy!
