Editorial: Vandalism of sacred ground inexcusable

"Who in their right mind would intentionally vandalize an archaeological excavation site?

Don't the vandals know that they are trampling on sacred ground and destroying artifacts that help link today with the past? Let's hope the vandals that struck the archaeological dig at an ancient Squaxin Island tribal fishing village at Mud Bay are caught and brought to justice.

The good news is that the vandals did not take any artifacts from the site. The bad news is that they disrupted the historic record of the site by destroying oyster shells, clam shells and fish bones at the fishing village on the property of Ralph and Karen Munro."
