Langley is not on Hat Island. It never has been nor will it ever be. Yet, good luck trying to convince Apple Inc. of that fact, or for that matter even getting a media representative on the horn. That such a large and respected tech company could make such a mistake in the first place is difficult to believe. That they would ignore repeated requests to fix the error, however, one that’s persisted for years, is rude and just plain irresponsible.
The city first received a Rural Economic Development grant in 2005 from Island County for $242,423 to widen Wharf Street and better connect the Langley marina and the City of Langley. For six years thereafter the grant funds remained unclaimed and the economy declined significantly at the end of 2007.
Whidbey Animals’ Improvement Foundation is well on its way to having a new shelter for the island’s homeless pet population. It’s taken years of fundraising and a lot of community support to reach this point. While things are moving along quickly, more support is needed to finish the job.
