After the Luvera totem pole at Washington Park fell in the storm of December 18, 1990, the remains were cut in sections and taken a storage site at the city dump. The city dump was opened to city residents as a place to leave damaged trees, etc., from the storm. Parts of the totem pole were taken away from the unsecured site by unknown individuals. On April 9, 1991, Anita Luvera Mayer wrote a letter to Mr. Sternberg and Ms. Hartford thanking them for the return of two pieces of the totem pole. "We are so thankful that you realized the value of the pieces and salvaged them from the burn pile at the city site. To have these pieces of the pole back is important to the community and our family." Copies of the letter were sent to Paul Luvera, Jr., Phyllis Luvera Ennes and Mary Babarovich Luvera. Copies were also sent to Steve Colby (Parks director), Mayor Jim Rice, and the
ANACORTES AMERICAN with the identities of the addressees deleted.
