LETTER TO THE EDITOR | Editorial claiming First Street project was ‘rude’ was uncalled for

  • Jul 16, 2014 at 6:00AM

Editor, Due to the two recent articles regarding the cancellation of my First Street development in Langley I would like to clear up a few errors. The project was designed originally to have two stories that ran the length of the property at the First Street level. There was never any plan to ask for a third story level as the code allowed only two stories. After two years and three different designs, I hired a new architect, Eric Richmond. He and Langley Community Planning Director Jeff Arango came up with the third story addition, open space and building separation idea as it was done at the Wharf Street, and Jeff thought it could be a trade off for the open space that I was providing.

LETTER TO THE EDITOR | Vet response to pet crisis was awesome

  • Jul 16, 2014 at 12:00PM

Editor, As part-time island residents, my family has had little need for veterinary assistance for our animals, who travel with us every summer. This past Saturday morning, however, our little Schnauzer took on an opponent that was more than she bargained for, causing her to suffer serious injury. After frantically calling area vets, we found the only one open on Saturday morning was South Whidbey Animal Clinic. As we approached the clinic with our wounded Daisy, we found the Clinic’s staff on the sidewalk waiting for us. They immediately took her to stabilize her and assess the injuries. They acted with calm professionalism, understanding and compassion.
