Development of the 18-acre site will include installing utilities, paving and grading. Work is anticipated to be completed before the end of the year.

The 2024 Great Olympic Peninsula Duck Derby Winner(s) plural were John and Sarah Aten of Port Angeles. Their new 2024 Toyota Corolla from Wilder Auto in Ruby Red is a “nice treat” said John Aten. But his wife Sarah will drive it mostly as they have other autos in the family. Every year the family buys the big package for $350 which includes one entry in the VID race and 60 other duck entries in the main race of pluck a duck from a truck. Note that “their” VID duck is labeled JETS. The four letters stand for the four members of their family - John, Elora (a teen), Tim (also a teen) and Sarah. It's their family code, they often use. Sarah said this is all “so cool”. dlogan
