Clinton resident Roy Simmons will never forget 1945. He was 8 years old, and his older brother Stanley was overseas fighting in World War II. Like many young men at the time, Stanley had been eager to serve his country and dropped out of Langley High School to enlist. He said goodbye to his family, and was shipped off to fight in the Pacific Theater.

Two very different kind of banks are teaming up to address an expected increase in food needs among students this summer. Anticipating the increased burden on struggling families once schools are out for summer, Whidbey Island Bank has promised to match donations to Good Cheer Food Bank up to $5,000 until June 30.
The South Whidbey School District will be collaborating with the Island County Substance Abuse Prevention Council to establish early intervention strategies and expand outreach to students. At a school board workshop May 13, Langley Mayor Fred McCarthy and Island County Commissioner Helen Price Johnson represented the council and spoke with directors about their intentions and plans.
South Whidbey High School’s resident osprey have happily nestled into their new nesting area. The osprey had previously nested atop one of the high school football field’s light poles. Concerned with the structural integrity of the pole as well as the potential risk the weighty nest’s location posed to both birds and humans, school district employees worked with the Whidbey Audubon Society and Osprey Solutions to build and install a new nest pole and platform elsewhere on the field.
Organizers and supporters of the Upper Langley co-housing project in Langley will hold a ground breaking ceremony this weekend. The event begins at noon Sunday, May 31 at the project site near the end of Al Anderson Avenue.
