Tidepools 2003 is looking for a few good writers, poets and photographers.

Tidepools is a literary magazine published annually by Peninsula College, with support from the Peninsula Daily News. It features short stories, poetry and photography (color and black-and-white) from writers and artists living in Clallam and Jefferson counties.

Entrants may be amateurs or professionals, age 6 and older.

Lena Curtis guides a snow sled with her two children, Lucien Williams, 4 1/2, and Millie, 2, all from Port Townsend, down a snow hill at Port Townsend High School on Tuesday. An overnight storm passed through but not before depositing about 3 inches of soft powder, which melted rapidly as the day warmed. The blast of snowfall was largely confined to the area around Port Townsend and Port Hadlock overnight into Tuesday morning on the North Olympic Peninsula. Another weather system was coming in on Tuesday afternoon and is expected to drop rain in the lowlands and snow in the mountains on Wednesday and early Thursday, according to meteorologist Jacob DeFlitch with the National Weather Service in Seattle.
