>Where Are The Updates? We have been asked about when the Updates will resume, so it must be time to continue them. We had a nice trip around the Baltic Sea, visiting and touring in Germany, Finland, Sweden, and Denmark. We were surprised at the low salinity and lack of tidal fluctuations in the Baltic Sea. After the trip I ended up with pneumonia and have finally recovered enough to want to sit at my computer. Not too many items to report so should be able to catch up with all I know in this Update.
>We were out of town for awhile and missed a number of events.

>Noise From Gillnetters. We had reports from some Midwest people that is sounded like it was pheasant hunting season in Illahee on Friday with all the shotgun blasts. It was also reported there were a few less seals on the area floats on Saturday morning. Evidently the shotgun noise was coming from the gillnetters protecting their catches from the seals.
People Passing Away. We haven’t always known what to do when local Illahee residents pass away. Do we wait for the obituary to show up in the paper, which sometimes can be weeks, or do we just pass on whatever we know? There will be a website advisory group meeting soon that will discuss what should be reported. We have decided to pass the information on when we receive it as sometimes neighbors aren’t always aware or they may be on travel.
Helga Wright Passing. We were notified Friday of Helga Wright’s passing. It doesn’t seem like it was very many years ago when her husband died. It was quite sudden. The following was received from one of her neighbors:
Helga Wright passed away yesterday afternoon. She was admitted to Harrison Tuesday for stomach problems, operated on Wednesday and because of severe complications wasn’t expected to survive much longer. Her family decided to take her off life support 2 PM yesterday. We’ll miss her.
CAG Near Final List. We have completed compiling the list of Citizens Advisory Group (CAG) members that were involved with the Illahee Community Plan between 2006 to 2008. The county supplied the 2008 list, and the community supplied the names from 2006 through 2007. Since the names will soon be listed in the Plan we have printed the list here. If you helped and your name isn’t on it, please let us know asap as the names will be sent to the county on Monday, 11/10/08.
