Editor, When did we stop taking responsibility for our own actions? Why are we always looking to blame others for our misfortunes, either real or perceived? This is the case of the so-called Citizens Of Ebey’s Reserve. The COER want to blame the jets for their alleged misfortunes, yet refuse to acknowledge their own responsibilities for moving here, in the first place.

Attendees included family, business leaders, elected officials, and of course, veterans, many of whom were also the former.

Editor, I just finished reading about the moratorium on marijuana in The Record. This moratorium looks to me like the commissioners are looking for a way to nullify the law that passed, by the initiative process, that legalizes the production and sale of marijuana for recreation. This law was passed by a majority of voters, not our state Legislature, so there can be no doubt about the desires of the people of Washington State for the legalization of marijuana.Editor, I just finished reading about the moratorium on marijuana in The Record.

Failing to look both ways a second time before turning onto Highway 525 near Bayview Road proved a costly mistake for two drivers Tuesday morning.

The impact sent Stites’ Chrysler LHS into a roadside ditch across the street from Whidbey Telecom’s Bayview hub.

Editor, In his Nov. 3 blog, even Joe Kunzler, an OLF proponent, concludes that the 2002 jet noise notice is basically a whitewash that has been duping folks into buying a pig in a poke. Keeping in mind that the duped total way more than a few outliers, he suggests that the county roll back its current cover up and go back to its 1992-2001 notice. Joe is letting his conscience show, but he needs to understand that notice wasn’t much more than another whitewash with a different tint.
