With autumn in full swing, our readers enjoyed looking at the interesting stories of people who choose to call Whatcom County home. These were our readers’ favorite stories published in October.
1. Helen and Cal Swindell – Keeping the Neighborhood Clean, One Walk at a Time
2. Krissy Moehl—An Ultra Runner’s View of Trail Running in Bellingham
Abby Johnson is a great writer – and also a high school student. This fall we kicked off our first high school internship program. In her first month, Abby’s article about Krissy Moehl, an ultra trail runner, shot to the #2 spot for most-read articles.
3. Paws for a Beer: Fairhaven’s First Off-Leash Dog Bar
Dogs + Beer = Great Combo for WhatcomTalk readers. The article about Paws for a Beer, a new bar that welcomes off-leash dogs was a quick success and earned Theresa Golden a second article in the Top 3 for October.
4. Editor’s Pick: Rod Hanson – 22 Years, Millions of Pieces of Mail Delivered in Bellingham
I admit to being loving story pitches about everyday heroes. Rod Hanson, a local mail carrier, is someone who brightened lives daily. I appreciate that WhatcomTalk can share stories about people doing a good job in what may seem like the smallest ways.
