About Stanwood Camano News

We are the ink-stained, pen-scratched, broadsheet-ed, 122-year-old weekly newspaper for Stanwood and Camano Island. We circulate to 4,000 people who turn our pages for politics, news, features, high-school sports and slices of humanity.

We are community journalism with the boundaries pushed. The prose refined. We are hungry to be different, to be professional, to be better than we were last week. Because our pages might go from shop box to recycle bin to fire starter, but the stories remain. They drive our presses. They are all that matter.

Stories are why we keep scribbling notes and scrubbing facts and typing copy, chasing glimmers of capital-T truth.

When you un-crease an issue, we want you to learn about the city, county or state, sure, but we also want you to learn something about yourself.

NEWS: This is what it means to be human.
