LETTER TO THE EDITOR | New Island Transit board inspires optimism

  • Jan 24, 2015 at 12:00PM

Editor, I attended the most recent meeting of Island Transit’s Board of Directors on Jan. 16, 2015. It was a breath of fresh air! With three new board members — Island County Commissioner Jill Johnson Pfeiffer, Island County Commissioner Rick Hannold, and Oak Harbor City Councilman Rick Almberg — the meeting ran smoothly. There is a new chairman of the board as well as a new secretary.

With your help, the Commons is on the road back from surviving the Second Street construction to thriving in 2015.

  • Jan 21, 2015 at 10:00AM

Editor, On Tuesday, Jan. 13, I was appalled and not just a little scared, for there were people walking along Highways 525 and 20 about 5:30 p.m. going north on the right side of the road in the dark. Two different groups around Houston and Race Roads.
