Once Upon an Island – Tom Cowan – April 2010

January 1st, 2011

Once Upon an Island

An enchanting hour of storytelling with Islanders young and old. Lorrie Harrison and Alie Smaalders visit with local characters, old-timers, philosophers and others who drop by to share personal tales of this place we all call home.

This month, Lorrie and Alie interview Tom Cowan

Tom Cowan begins with an anecdote about his 1964 post-high school summer on the island; talks about moving here with his young family in 1974 and wearing multiple hats to patch together a living; and finally talks about his 12 years as San Juan County Commissioner highlighting the local issues which mattered to him most.
