INDIAN ISLAND — Thirty-five war protesters were arrested Saturday afternoon after 22 Jefferson County deputies greeted them at the gates to Naval Magazine Indian Island.

“I thought it was really lovely,” said Liz Rivera Goldstein.

She and her husband Dan were among those arrested — many of them smiling — and taken away in two Jefferson Transit buses to the Jefferson County jail in Port Hadlock.
