LETTER TO THE EDITOR | It’s up to us to protect beaches

  • Jul 23, 2016 at 10:00AM

To my dismay, a recent walk on Double Bluff beach revealed a rainbow of paper remnants and plastic particles (the detritus of fireworks), plastic water bottles, newspapers, fire pits, driftwood fort cities, unidentifiable rubbish, the stench of dog feces and an overflowing outhouse, and a dam line of driftwood hindering the water from climbing the beach in its natural pattern.

LETTER TO THE EDITOR | Not convinced by smear campaign

  • Jul 23, 2016 at 6:00PM

I read with interest your recent article about the state senate race. It was a relief to read a fact-based, even-handed article, because I’m still reeling from what turned out to be an unsolicited “push-poll” by Senator Barbara Bailey’s campaign. I got a phone call from a person identifying herself as a member of an objective political survey team.

LETTER TO THE EDITOR | Charging fares is like double-taxing

Open Letter to Island Transit Board Of Directors: I recently read with dismay Island Transit’s 6 Year Transit Development Plan to implement fares for all in-county bus ridership. Island Transit has been fare free for many years and notably it has been affirmed by county-wide votes. The latest approved an increase to the transit sales tax levy and to continue a fare-free system.

LETTER TO THE EDITOR | Not much went into finding artist

I have to weigh in on the issue of the Park/Talman sculpture being demolished by the hospital. Mikal, the spelling he preferred, and I were very good friends since 1975. I couldn’t agree more with Bill Skubi’s description of him in the June 29 issue of the Whidbey News-Times.

LETTER TO THE EDITOR | Let’s ban everything fun and noise related

  • Jul 23, 2016 at 12:00PM

In response to the letters about banning fireworks in the July 9 edition of The Record, I fully agree. Let’s ban everything fun and noise related in Langley. Someone think about the bunnies! As someone who grew up in Langley I am saddened to see the amount of control and influence that whiners who have moved here from wherever have over the town and the South End.
