  • May 26, 2015 at 4:53PM

We’ve all heard it so many times, that old adage “How time flies when you’re having fun,” but I’ve never felt it so strongly as I do at this moment. Today, as I’m writing this, it is May 15, 2015, and when I sat down at my computer, wondering which of several possibilities I’d use for a column, it suddenly hit me. It was in May, 1989 that my first column appeared in the South Whidbey Record. 1989! I’m in shock as I realize that was 26 years ago, and there is no way I ever thought that would happen.

  • May 27, 2015 at 6:00PM

Editor, According to your article of May 6, “Freeland Continues to Fight for Growth in Comp Plan.” But just who is “Freeland?” Does Freeland belong to a handful of politicians and developers who would profit from a plan for growth?
