LETTER TO THE EDITOR | Fair plan is too ambitious, better alternatives exist

  • Apr 10, 2014 at 10:00AM

Editor, The fair is a bit short on money. Looks like it needs another $35,000 to $50,000 a year. Let’s see … We could give the fairground property to a new event center organization. We’ll build it with $10 million bonds, guaranteed by the county, using the fairground property as collateral. We’ll keep personnel costs down to $700,000 per year. We’ll tear down most of the structures and build new ones that are unsuited to mundane fair events. But forget the fair — there will be so many other awesome events throughout the year that when it withers away we won’t even notice.

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.

EDITORIAL | Derelict vessel rules a win for Washington

  • Apr 11, 2014 at 10:00AM

Gov. Jay Inslee signed into law last week legislation that further targets the ongoing problem of derelict vessels scattered throughout Washington’s waterways. While the new rules do not provide instant gratification to those seeking justice and accountability for past disasters, such as with Rory Westmoreland, the owner of the crab boat that sank in Penn Cove in 2012 at a cost of $5.4 million to taxpayers, it is another step toward the prevention of future incidents.
