I believe watchdogs have their place in government. Too many people are apathetic about their government, local or otherwise, and that’s a sad condition of our society.

Editor, I need to get this off my chest. America is being targeted by a terrorist organization. This terrorist organization has a name, actually two names, the Republican Party and the spineless wing of the Democratic Party.

First-time fire boat builders at North Cross Aluminum in Freeland are back on track with the South Whidbey Fire/EMS’s fire boat time frame, the district’s chief said. After one of the company’s workers was injured in a motorcycle crash, the shop was down one employee for a time. That slowed production of a new, $500,000 marine response vessel.

A frightened and seemingly stuck dog was rescued after a long day of yelping and barking from the Edgecliff bluff Monday afternoon. Karly, the 4-year-old chocolate lab/pit bull mix, was unharmed after chasing a rabbit down the bluff and getting stuck between the bluff and the beach in Langley. Owner Neil Colburn, a former Langley mayor, heard the dog in the afternoon and eventually South Whidbey Fire/EMS was called to assist in the pooch’s procurement.

Editor, I listened to the press conference that President Barack Obama gave today. And boy did he stand up to the right wingers and for America. He repeatedly stated that holding America hostage for a ransom just so the Tea Baggers could get their way and do their job was wrong and Obama wasn’t going to give in to them. Over and over Obama said that the way to negotiate is not to give nothing and expect something. He said that the Democrats had done this in the past, where the Republicans got what they wanted and the Democrats got nothing in return. And he’s not gonna do that now.
