Meerkerk Gardens was festively infested by fairies on a glorious, sunny Saturday in Greenbank. With hundreds of rhododendrons and other plants in bloom over acres of gardens, little fairies sporting wings, fancy dresses and garlands in their hair flitted from flower to flower, stopping to pose for pictures taken by proud parents and grandparents. The number of fairies at the annual “Meerkerk Magic” day, which draws lots of girls and a few boys from throughout the island, surprised even veterans of the event.

Tom Park has a use for the historic Whidbey Telecom phone booth along Highway 525 south of Greenbank, but it’s not as intended.
In 1953, David Henny purchased Whidbey Telephone Co. with its 500 customers and soon decided to bury the overhead telephone lines underground. The decision showed foresight but was not without controversy. The Whidbey Record editor at the time wrote sarcastically that if the phone lines were to be buried then the sewer lines should be placed overhead on wooden poles. Fortunately, that idea didn’t carry the day.
Norma Metcalf, the queen of South Whidbey Republican politics, didn’t get her way in the party caucus held in the overflowing high school New Commons Saturday morning.
