Island County issues swimming advisory
Island County has issued a swimming advisory for Freeland County Park. The park is currently closed to recreational shellfish harvesting due to fecal coliform contamination detected in drainage discharges and marine waters of the southern portion of Holmes Harbor.
The closure includes all beaches south of a line extending from the eastern terminus of Ships Haven Drive east to the western terminus of Twin Oak Lane.
Since there is an increased risk of illness, avoid swimming, wading or playing where water could be swallowed or get into the mouth, nose or eyes. The swimming advisory will remain in effect until the water quality improves.

AAA says 40.7 million people will go 50 miles or more from home this holiday, a 1.2 percent increase from last year. Of those, about 80 percent will travel by car.
Thursday marked the 50th anniversary of the interstate highway system, which was created when President Dwight Eisenhower signed the Federal Aid Highway Act on June 29, 1956.
