What others say about Ula Lewis | HOMETOWN HERO

  • Jan 21, 2014 at 11:00AM

“Ula brings all of her gifts to the table here at Good Cheer Food Bank. Her tireless contribution goes well beyond any reasonable expectation of one human being.

We have begun a coupon club to support her efforts, but this has yet to decrease her full time hours of volunteer contributions.”

LETTER TO THE EDITOR | Perspective sorely needed for Navy airfield

  • Jan 21, 2014 at 8:00PM

Editor, This letter is in response to those who want the Navy to close the Outlying Field at Coupeville. Sometimes we lose our perspective about issues. For example, I choose to live adjacent to a golf course on South Whidbey. As a result, golf balls hit my house and I sometimes have to endure summertime traffic congestion and long ferry lines. But I don’t expect the golf course to close, or the ferry system to shut down because of my decision to live here. I knew about both of those issues when I moved here. It isn’t perfect, but I love living here.

Mayor’s beat — 2014 : A year of economic development

  • Jan 22, 2014 at 10:00AM

About 20 years ago I heard a superintendent of a large school district in Arizona address a conference of educators. She was insightful, engaging and funny, and her message has stayed with me all these years. She said something that we in Langley can relate to because it involved boats. She said, “If there is a hole in the boat, there is a hole in the whole boat.” Everyone leaned forward to hear the next statement. She went on to say, “When you are on a boat, you can’t say I don’t care if the stern goes down because where I am on the bow is above water right now.”
