In the September 2020 Print Edition

Aug 27, 2020 06:00AM ● By Pamela Johnson
September is typically back-to-school month, but is hardly a typical September. A hybrid in-person/remote learning approach will kick off the year, and it's anybody's guess how that will unfold as the year progresses. We're down to less than a dozen cases in town at this writing, and I'm hoping that everyone is being super cautious and we can keep that nasty virus from rearing its ugly head again in the fall.

School sports is another area where guidelines are still being determined. Read Ken Hamwey's Municipal Spotlight on the guidance that schools have received from governing agencies. And as usual, we've also got some other interesting articles celebrating small-town life.

As always, we request that, if you need a service or item, you consider sourcing it here in Bellingham, and more specifically, with one of our advertisers. For some of our not-so-computer-literate residents, the Bellingham Bulletin is their only source for local news because it is delivered to their homes free of charge. It is our advertisers that make it possible for us to produce and deliver this paper to Bellingham residents, and to post it here online, all free of charge. So, bottom line: no advertisers, no Bellingham Bulletin.

Below are some highlights from our September issue, and after those, you'll see the digital version of the September issue. Click on the box and you can peruse the PDF file at your leisure. ("Esc" will get you out of it when you're done.) Enjoy!
