LETTER TO THE EDITOR | Georgia Gardner should be reelected to Whidbey hospital board

  • Aug 29, 2015 at 2:00PM

Editor, I am extremely concerned about the upcoming election. I believe it imperative that we re-elect Georgia Gardner to the Whidbey General Hospital board. At a recent League of Women Voters Forum in Langley, I understood Rob Born to say he was interested in affiliating with a faith-based hospital. That concerns me because if that happens my decisions about my end-of-life care will not be honored. With much thought and care, I have completed the legal documents provided by Compassion and Choices.


LETTER TO THE EDITOR | Tim Callison is the right person for Langley mayor

  • Aug 29, 2015 at 12:00PM

Editor, I believe that I have a unique perspective on Tim Callison and his fit for the position of mayor for the City of Langley. I am a Washington resident and also a former employee of Tim’s. Tim was the president of a marketing and sales organization for a global manufacturing company that I was also a part of. He started his career as a laborer on the manufacturing floor and through determination, hard work and diligence he worked his way to the top leadership role. He did not rely on others to do his work for him and he did not ride on the coat tails of others during his journey in corporate America.


EDITORIAL | Passing jail death review on was the right call

  • Aug 29, 2015 at 12:00PM

Island County Prosecutor Greg Banks this week announced that he is not the right person to perform a review into the death of Keaton Farris at the Coupeville jail this past April. While perhaps a bit overdue, this was the right call and we applaud the prosecutor’s decision to step away from this important investigation. The results may yet result in no criminal proceedings, no matter who performs it, but he is absolutely correct that his conclusions would always be suspect.
