Amid down year, Falcon boy hoopsters stick together
Mar 03 2013, 12:51 PM
Beating Coupeville three times was nice for the South Whidbey boys basketball seniors.
But it wasn’t enough. The Falcons finished with the worst record (2-12 Cascade Conference; 5-19 overall) under head coach Henry Pope, who just finished his third season.
At the start of the season, the Falcons had a dearth of senior leadership. Taylor Simmons, Sam Turpin, Josh Bishop and Mitchell Hughes were all on varsity last season, though played sporadic minutes. It looked like the Falcons could be a veteran-led team with the kind of starting rotation and a couple of reserves to challenge in the Cascade Conference.
LETTERS TO THE EDITOR | These are the actual words
Mar 01 2013, 3:58 PM
For reasons unknown to me, The South Whidbey Record staff took it upon themselves to title my letter to the editor (printed Feb. 16), “Kwarsick set a fine standard.” These were not my words. In a Feb. 23 letter to the editor one Mr. W. Getz took strong exception to that title.
Let me clarify. It appears evident that Larry Kwarsick committed a crime by breaking his oath of office when he falsified documents to assist a family member in obtaining a building permit. This is not “the fine standard” that is acceptable in our mayor.
VIEWPOINT | Boys with guns unaware of danger

I had a strange experience for a south islander one recent Saturday. I live on the hills north of the Whidbey.net tower about a quarter mile or so away, we have five acres of forest in an area that’s pretty much all forest.
There are walking trails snaking through the area; past houses, which are sparse in the area.

CareNet is there for responders
Mar 01 2013, 3:49 PM
Rob Harrison and Petra Martin, leaders of Whidbey CareNet, celebrate a year of counseling first responders on Whidbey Island.
Whidbey CareNet was founded after a particularly sorrowful winter in 2011. From November to December, South Whidbey grieved the tragic vehicular deaths of four people younger than 22. First responders, who are also neighbors of the people they serve, struggled to process the events. Martin assembled a group of counselors, health professionals and other caregivers to aid the firefighters, emergency medical technicians and law enforcement officers who needed help.

LETTERS TO THE EDITOR | Base gun control on the facts
Mar 01 2013, 3:59 PM
To the editor:
The Newtown tragedy makes us think of how such horrible events can be prevented. That applies equally to anti-gun and pro-gun sides of any debate on the subject. There are the usual reactions on both sides, with many bystanders to such discussions just assuming all statements and proposals are factual. That is not the case. Facts and truth are casualties on both sides of the debate.
