the local police chief charlie swan and his crew run this joint. it's not a terrifying place to be fair, all the murderers and rapist get shipped out to the maximum security prison in walla walla. you might end up in here for parking tickets or disturbing the peace.
the only hospital in the vicinity. the out-of-towners call it a 'death camp'. most people get taken to seattle general if they have enough money to throw at the ambulance driver. the rest of us just deal and hope to get dr. cullen.
the local parish. it doesn't really have a religious branch, aside from being christian-- catholic masses are done some sundays, baptist masses on others. the priest is a pretty laid back sort of guy, it seems.
if you borrow a book, please return it within the set number of days. in a town this small you don't even have to register for a library card--the batty old librarian knows your face. how? good question. maybe she was a ninja in her past life.
