What’s in a name? | WHIDBEY RECIPES

  • May 27, 2014 at 6:00PM

It’s hard for me to believe, now, that I ever uttered the words, loud enough for all around me to hear, “Salmon again? I’m really really tired of salmon every night!” How could I ever have been tired of salmon? Well, my grandfather, father, two uncles and a couple of cousins were all avid fishermen, going out every weekend unless the waves in the bay or on Hood Canal were three feet high or more. And after my grandfather retired, he was out in the boat, line in the water, every day from dawn to dusk. Among them all, they caught a lot of salmon, their preferred catch. An occasional cod or sole was acceptable, but it was salmon they were after, and salmon they got, which of course they shared with all the family members who lived in Shelton and nearby.

LETTER TO THE EDITOR | Edgecliff property not abandoned

  • May 24, 2014 at 4:00PM

I have read with interest some of the comments regarding my Edgecliff restaurant property. Some have described it as abandoned and uncared for. I currently maintain the property with a weekly gardener, have the power and water on and have it heated during the winter. In the last few years I have had the parking lot repaired, trimmed all of the overgrown trees, had the building completely painted, replaced four of the waterfront windows and have had it constantly on the market for sale or rent. I have also explored the possibility of making it into a medical clinic to no avail.
