Doug Raynolds, 2014 (SBOH#009)

Doug is a fixture of south Salmon Beach, and lives just down the walk from his brother Kelly (see SBOH#003). At the same time, he’s a fairly recent arrival — he first began spending time at the beach in 1999. In this interview, he talks about his move from Colorado to the beach, about the historic cabin he owns on the south end of the beach, and about some of the attractive benefits of living amidst such ¬†close community. He talks about some of the changes he’s seen in the beach community over the past decade or two, and briefly about the relations between the north and south beach.

Bill Hanson, 2014 (SBOH#008)

Bill has one of the longer timelines on the beach, and was deeply involved with multiple facets of the community over several decades. In this interview, Bill provides some detail and background about the schism that resulted in the longstanding split between the north and the south beach. As he describes, some of this had to do with culture and some individual people, but a lot of it played out in the communal decisions about utilities, parking, and money. Bill also talks about the Salmon Beach community he encountered in the 1970s, and he provides valuable detail about his interactions and legal tussles¬†with the city — emblematic and characteristic experiences for Salmon Beach at the time.
