During a walk downtown with friends Monday afternoon, Scottsdale, Ariz. resident Charles Klar was quick to notice what had changed in Langley since his last visit years ago. Two of the city’s iconic restaurants — Dog House Tavern and Mike’s Place — are now closed and vacant. The hollow shells of the former restaurants reminded him of a “ghost town,” he observed.
A public hearing on Langley’s proposed 2017-2022 six-year transportation improvement plan will be held at the city council’s regular monthly meeting on at 5:30 p.m. on Tuesday, Sept. 6 at City Hall.
Editor, One of the things that makes life on Whidbey Island unique is sharing our habitat with wildlife. Most of the time we enjoy our close encounters and other times we run into conflict. The owl that Melissa Ross came into contact with, as reported in The Record’s recent story “Owl attacks Clinton woman for 30 min.,” was most likely a barn owl, and was simply protecting the owlets that were nearby.
Editor, Just read in your paper that donations for the Langley Soup Kitchen are down. I go there almost every week. Along with Hearts and Hammers, it’s one of the best organizations we have on South Whidbey. They do a wonderful job, provide a very necessary service, and all in a friendly, competent manner.
Efforts to transform Seawall Park in downtown Langley into a sculpture park has additional support after the city council approved the forming of an ad hoc committee on Aug. 1. The committee will have somewhere between five or nine members, said City Planner Brigid Reynolds, and will consist of nearby property owners, Langley Arts Commission members, Parks and Open Space Commission members, city officials and other interested parties.
