  • Sep 10, 2014 at 2:00PM

LETTER TO THE EDITOR | Langley Lift would block view shed

  • Oct 3, 2014 at 4:06PM

Editor, I am against permitting for the Langley lift. I have lived in the area for 30 years and the panoramic view along Cascade Avenue as you come into Langley is one of the delights of the area. I hear tourists and locals alike marvel at that view when I am at work in downtown Langley. Why blight it with anything at all? If the view weren’t important why would the trees be trimmed?

LETTER TO THE EDITOR | ‘Un-GOP’ Congress this November

  • Oct 4, 2014 at 6:00AM

Editor, As we approach another election, it is incumbent on us in the electorate to be sure we don’t allow the Grand Old Party to continue to GOP-up the government. In the last six years the GOP has used every devious ploy to keep the government from running properly, from not confirming presidential appointments to filibustering every piece of progressive legislation put before it, even legislation that was first proposed by them. They do this, not for the sake of the people, but just to embarrass the president at the expense of the people, which their leadership has clearly stated.
