The Cottages at Seabright Farms hosted its second fundraising concert for the Cross Border Coalition to Stop the Towers on August 23, attracting hundreds who came out for food, music and solidarity. Craig Jacks and the Nuevo Jackalopes, the John Harris Band, Kelli O’Neill and KK performed. Admission included the concert, parking, lunch and an antique car show. The Point Roberts Registered Voters Association ran a pitch and putt game by donation and the local fire department showed off its equipment.
The event raised over $15,000 to help fill the coalition’s war chest for their legal battle to halt a proposed array of five AM radio towers at the corner of Tyee Drive and McKenzie Way. The applicant, BBC Broadcasting Inc., is appealing Whatcom County’s decision to turn down the application as not meeting zoning regulations for the location, specifically height.
