Even though Father's Day isn't until June, our Publisher Emeritus, Gerald S. Robinson's birthday is April 6, 1920. So for us.. it's a day to celebrate our father.
By Ken Robinson
Outside my home office window there is a yellow rose given to me by my older brother when our father died.The flowers it offers in spring are a living reminder of a great dad.
As one of five sons of Gerald and Lee Robinson, my memories are of a lucky and loving childhood. I always wonder how Dad did what he did while growing his business as a newspaperman. He took us fishing in lakes and streams and in Elliott Bay and at Neah Bay and Sekiu and many of the state’s big rivers. And sometimes in the summer, he would leave his office early and take us to places like Lake Wilderness to swim.
