EDITORIAL | Give WICA its liquor license
Mar 01 2013, 3:57 PM
Whidbey Island Center for the Arts is trying to increase its revenue flow a bit by selling beer, wine or even martinis to its patrons.

The tug pilots expected the Tokitae would be loaded late Friday afternoon and, if all went well, they would hold the barge overnight in Holmes Harbor, probably leaving with Saturday afternoon’s high tide.

LETTERS TO THE EDITOR | Guns are not the answer
Mar 01 2013, 3:58 PM

Not exactly an upbeat view of human nature or society. Certainly not an appeal to “the better angels of our being.” It is a view that everyone is a threat, particularly if they think or look different. This perspective also lacks a sense of community.
