This is the time of the year when islanders give and give some more, whether it’s to One Call For All, Helpline House, the Katy Warner Christmas Fund or the nonprofit entity of their choice. Garnet Logan, a Helpline House board member, offers thanks.

Obviously, there is no guarantee that hard times will spare us just because we’re doing good deeds for others. It would seem fair, but we all know the well-worn adage about life and fairness and all that. Joan and Sarah Wilt certainly expected nothing more than the inner warmth that often accompanies helping others when they became involved six years ago with the island’s Christmas Fund.

As if you didn’t already know, Hilary Franz, Barry Peters, Chris Snow and Kjell Stoknes are members of a status quo that considers Kim Brackett, Bill Knobloch and Debbie Vancil dissidents. So, for an answer to why, Snow and Vancil were willing to represent the point of view of their respective sides.
