Peaches and Pits: Tokeland Chamber discusses the best and worst of Woodfest

Tokeland's Woodfest event, August 14-15, was swarmed by crowds of art seekers and sightseers. A low estimate of the crowd was around 1,500 on Saturday as they caught the events, carving demonstrations, and vendors located around the Tokeland Hotel.

Tokeland/North Cove Chamber of Commerce Secretary Sandy Prosser attributed the crowds to the excellent weather on Saturday and that everyone wanted to be out and about.

"We had six really great carvers this year," she said. "We had about 40 vendors. We were able to debut our event trailer. The pirates came through with a great ship and they had a little train; it gave the kids something to do. Which was a nice addition. The vendors had excellent sales and turn out."

Inslee on 20th anniversary of 9/11 terrorist attacks

Last Saturday, Gov. Jay Inslee issued a statement about the 9/11 terrorist attacks of Sept. 11, 2001.

"My fellow Washingtonians, today marks the 20th anniversary of the terrorist attacks that killed nearly 3,000 people in this country on September 11, 2001. As we remember this tragedy and honor our nation's resilience, this time is also an opportunity to strengthen our national consciousness and consider what we can keep doing to advance freedom.

"Twenty years is a long time, but all of us who lived through these events remember where we were that day. I was in our nation's capital, serving in Congress, where I saw the smoke rise from the Pentagon. No one could be sure at first what was happening or how it would end. I was fortunate to be led to a safe place that day while the chaos and uncertainty played out, but many others put themselves in harm's way to help others. The courageous passengers on United Flight 93 likely saved the U.S. Capitol building and prevented more loss of life. I am eternally grateful for the sacrifices of first responders, our military and others for their rescue, recovery and security they provided our nation in the aftermath of these events.
