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.

Neighbors have a legitimate right to peace and quiet, and business owner Maureen Cooke has the equal right to run her tavern — Langley city code says so.

LETTER TO THE EDITOR | Report ferry-line cutters please

  • Feb 1, 2014 at 11:00AM

Editor, I just called in my first report — easy peasy. If we don’t report all cutters there will be no reason for anyone to wait in line. If there are no consequences these people won’t stop and others will follow. On Saturday, I spoke with the man immediately behind the cutter and he didn’t report because it did not impact him. No regard for the car waiting up the hill who will not get on the next ferry because of this cutter.

LETTER TO THE EDITOR | Minimum wage increase is awful

  • Feb 3, 2014 at 10:00AM

Editor, To Congressmen Larsen: Increasing the minimum wage is the worst thing you could do to an economy struggling to gain traction and recover. What absolutely slays me is supporters of an increased minimum wage’s inability to answer this simple question: If raising the minimum wage to $15 per hour won’t harm employers and is good for business, why don’t we just make the minimum wage $40 per hour, or $100 per hour for that matter? Like so many other positions you take, you have this one dead wrong.
