LETTER TO THE EDITOR | Noise control in Langley possible

  • Oct 29, 2014 at 12:00PM

Editor, I’ve worked in acoustics and noise control most of my life, and therefore have a few bona fides on the subject, and I take issue with Langley Planning Director Jeff Arango’s belief that sound level meters are “subjective.” That’s like saying that thermometers and smoke detectors are subjective. It’s what you do with the data that counts.

EDITOR'S COLUMN | Happy Halloween from The Record

  • Oct 29, 2014 at 2:00PM

The Burnt Man was real. At 5 or 6, I had no reason to doubt the tale and believed in him absolutely. He haunted the woods above Double Bluff, and if I wasn’t careful he’d get me! It’s a family ghost story, one that was told to my sister and me around driftwood fires on the shores of Useless Bay. That was back when one could do such a thing without ending up in the police blotter.

LETTER TO THE EDITOR | Gun initiative is a bad idea

  • Oct 29, 2014 at 4:00PM

Editor, State Initiative 594 is a bad idea. If I-594 were in place one year ago Jaylen Fryberg would still be dead and he would have still murdered another student and wounded four others. Neither I-594 nor the fact that the school is a “Gun Free Zone” stopped Jaylen Fryberg from murdering fellow students.

LETTER TO THE EDITOR | Deputy treasurer position is important

  • Oct 31, 2014 at 4:37PM

Editor, At a recent forum, Island County treasurer candidate Wanda Grone indicated that, were she required to make budget cuts, the "position" she would eliminate would be that of the foreclosure deputy. To paraphrase, as the numbers of property subject to tax foreclosure have dropped, those duties could easily be absorbed by the other staff members.

VIEWPOINT | With audit done, Island Transit is back on track, in the black

  • Nov 1, 2014 at 6:00AM

The state Auditors have finished their review of the Island Transit books for 2013 and confirmed there was no malfeasance. No money was stolen, but there was sloppy record-keeping and the previous management was not following standard practices in some important areas. Specifically, management of the cash-flow and documentation of the federal grant funds for the new building project in payroll and tracking inventory were of concern. The good news is the reductions in service earlier this year were sufficient to reduce expenses so Island Transit is operating in the black again and beginning to rebuild the reserve. Also a new financial officer has instituted proper record-keeping and begun a full review of internal controls to be sure best practices are being followed in all areas going forward.
