EDITORIAL | Glendale purchase pass is shortsighted

  • Mar 16, 2014 at 8:00AM

Public beach access: it’s been sand in the shoes of Island County commissioners for decades. It started as just a few grains, a handful of grumblers, but with steady growth the issue is now the regular topic of headlines, and that shoe just keeps filling up. The board does its best to pour it out, such as with the lawsuit over Wonn Road or the acceptance — though grudging — of Robinson Beach, but more sand always seems to take its place.

LETTER TO THE EDITOR | Parks board was right to lift ban

  • Mar 17, 2014 at 8:00AM

Editor, Contrary to The Record’s March 8 editorial, the park board’s decision to lift its ban on Terry Swanson was not based on favoritism or a “free pass” to disobey rules. Instead, its decision effectively admits that: 1) the park director’s order that Terry corral 18 athletes within a 30-by-50 area was based upon the director’s misunderstanding of the number of players involved, it was unsafe, and would have caused precisely the damage to the turf that the park wants to avoid; 2) the board has no precedent for banning citizens for playing soccer on an open soccer field; and 3) the primary purpose of the soccer fields is for soccer and not for show.

LETTER TO THE EDITOR | Swanson acted like a “bully”

  • Mar 18, 2014 at 8:00AM

Editor, Regarding the article headed “Swanson reigns supreme,” in the March edition of The Record, a superficial reading of the facts indicates that he is an arrogant bully with no regard for rules and regulations. Further investigation may prove otherwise, but it is doubtful.

LETTER TO THE EDITOR | Whidbey Fair plan was not so great

  • Mar 19, 2014 at 8:00AM

Editor, I found the recent proposal to remake the Whidbey Island Fair in Langley breathtaking in its scope. Along with wholesale change in character comes a huge debt, creating both a community-support gamble and a financial threat. The outcome could readily be failure and sale of the property within five years. Pulling up the Island County Fair by its roots and creating another Puyallup Fair-type venue may not be what urbanites seeking a dose of reality wait in ferry lines for.
