Oak Bay is a body of water near where I lived in Jefferson County, WA. It’s a great spot for clams, beach walks and low tide days. Port Hadlock is nearby.

Occasionally blogging about things that do not change no matter what political party or personality is in power.

Also, a bit of local photography.

I finished my time in the Marines in 1999 with a solid attitude and a patriotic spirit.

The US should maintain strong and ready military forces.

I question the ongoing glorification of military service and undeclared/unwon wars that never end.

Let’s Honor The Troops In Honest Ways

Concerns here are not specific to any political party, personality or group identity.

I am not anti-government, anti-military or anti-law enforcement.

Best case scenario: elected officials, public agencies, & a free and independent press work together to keep people informed.

Honest management of public information is essential.

Ready to purchase a subscription to any Puget Sound area newspaper that will show initiative and curiosity in asking questions.

Alternative Media

We are big fans of Independent/alternative media here at Oak Bay Starfish.

Alternative media is good about keeping an active comment section up & running. There’s always something to learn or think about from the points others make in the comment section.

Local papers have stripped away all comments from past articles, and removed the opportunity to post comments to new articles.

Various newspapers in the Puget Sound area have gone with this trend.

Suppressing comments, getting away from asking questions related to public policy and telling us they need more support from subscription and advertising sales.

Got it.
