Community members campout at City Hall for homeless solidarity

The Stop The Sweeps campout, taking place in front of Bellingham City Hall between Dec. 1 and Dec. 4, is part of a larger national movement focused on treating the homeless with dignity. Sweeps, as they’re called, are the traditional method of addressing homelessness with forced evictions of homeless camps. The idea of this movement is to end sweeps, and create more stability in the lives of homeless.

Shopping small

When Paul Hanson and Kelly Evert got married on the Fairhaven Village Green, they bought everything local. Rings, flowers, you name it. Now, as co-owners of Village Books, they’re working to keep that tradition going.
