  • Apr 14, 2014 at 8:00AM

Editor, Our community is being encouraged to shop in Langley during construction. I would like to go further and ask that the community think about the businesses that sponsor and support South Whidbey nonprofits. People who care about local causes own these businesses. When a business (farms included) gives an item, we tend to think there is no cost incurred. By giving an item, the business cannot sell it to a paying customer.
