  • Oct 29, 2014 at 10:00AM

LETTER TO THE EDITOR | Gun initiative is a bad idea

  • Oct 29, 2014 at 4:00PM

Editor, State Initiative 594 is a bad idea. If I-594 were in place one year ago Jaylen Fryberg would still be dead and he would have still murdered another student and wounded four others.

LETTER TO THE EDITOR | Noise control in Langley possible

  • Oct 29, 2014 at 12:00PM

This summer, there has been a never-ending stream of low-flying small craft with extremely loud and obnoxious engines and propellers. Sometimes I wonder if I am in a war zone.

EDITOR'S COLUMN | Happy Halloween from The Record

  • Oct 29, 2014 at 2:00PM

The Burnt Man was real. At 5 or 6, I had no reason to doubt the tale and believed in him absolutely. He haunted the woods above Double Bluff, and if I wasn’t careful he’d get me! It’s a family ghost story, one that was told to my sister and me around driftwood fires on the shores of Useless Bay. That was back when one could do such a thing without ending up in the police blotter.
