No mountain too tall for Freeland man's cancer quest

  • Jun 27, 2014 at 4:00PM

To hear Freeland resident Chris Kesler talk about his upcoming summit of Mount Rainier, reaching the top of Washington’s highest peak is a small task.

When Kesler, 49, runs into one Whidbey woman who is a breast cancer survivor, she thanks him each and every time for similar past ascents he’s made. But she also asks him if he plans on doing it another year, and he has given her the same response the past two years.

LETTER TO THE EDITOR | Considerate motorists have bicycle riders thanks

  • Jun 25, 2014 at 4:00PM

Editor, We have been riding our bicycles on South Whidbey almost every day since the beginning of April. We try to obey traffic laws, try not to take the right-of-way when a vehicle has it, stop for pedestrians, etc. Our experience is that motorists on the island are very considerate of cyclists.
