  • Jan 30, 2014 at 11:00AM

Editor, I have been watching this small anti-OLF group of malcontents who had buyer’s remorse. I found it hard to understand how anyone living near the Navy base could not realize that jet noise was part of the deal living there. But here they are as if the jets suddenly appeared from the blue.

EDITORIAL | No easy solution for Langley tavern

  • Feb 1, 2014 at 9:00AM

Controversy over Mo’s Pub and Eatery in Langley raised its ugly head again last week, and unfortunately it won’t be the last time.

No regard for the car waiting up the hill who will not get on the next ferry because of this cutter.
