Montgomery wins again: Skagit County judge nixes summary judgment bid for second time, case heads to trial
A dispute over public beach access in Greenback will likely go to trial in October. Skagit County Superior Court Judge Laura Riquelme denied Island County’s motion for summary judgment in its lawsuit against Greenbank residents Bruce and Joanne Montgomery. County officials asked the judge to end the three years of litigation and find that a disputed beach property at the end of Wonn Road belongs to the public.
Editor, Oh my gosh, really? Horse manure is natural and a healthy fertilizer composed of grains, grasses and water. There is nothing harmful about it. It is very good for the trees and fauna. This seems especially petty to me. I find that many dog walkers do have poop bags and many may use them, others don’t and yet others will use them and then set them on stumps, the ground along the trails, in parking lots or toss them in the woods.
Editor, As a lifelong equestrian, I was very disheartened after reading the letter to the editor regarding horse poop on local trails. I don’t ride my horse at Community Park, but definitely enjoy the trails at Putney Woods. Upon moving to the island nearly eight years ago, I was thrilled to find a local venue for trail riding.
Editor, I was not surprised to see the article in The Record about a horse poop “pileup.” The very title of the article implies we are overrun by it. When was the last tine you saw horseback riders on the side of the road? Or in the park? Or on a trail?
Retirement was never the end of the road for Langley resident Marie Plakos. It was only the beginning of a new chapter. Plakos was always keen on photography. When she concluded her life as a school superintendent, she spent her free time honing her skills while traveling the globe. What started as a hobby became a full-time job of sorts, and now her photography career looks to be picking up steam after she booked an exhibition at a museum with a recognizable namesake.
