An update on the Steilacoom II ferry An update on the Steilacoom II ferry
I wanted to update you on the status of the Anderson Island ferry as we head into the Labor Day weekend. As with many things, plans are often more complicated than expected and it now appears the Steilacoom II will not be back in service until as late as mid-October. After the vessel returns, the M/V Christine Anderson is also scheduled for a dockside engine and gear rebuild which will put that boat out of commission for several more weeks. Thus there is the potential for an even longer period of single-vessel operation into late fall.

Successful first U.S. Open at Chambers Bay Successful first U.S. Open at Chambers Bay
Three weeks ago, Pierce County was buzzing with spectators, golfers and media at the 2015 U.S. Open at Chambers bay. But the championship came to an end and daily life returned to normal. The U.S. Open was the largest event ever hosted by the county, and I couldn’t be more proud. From scenery to food and the distinctive architecture of the links-style course, the beautiful Pacific Northwest created a unique experience for players and spectators that will keep them coming back for years to come.
