Letters to the Editor
Editor, Everyone’s heard of Ronald Reagan’s mythical “welfare queen.” She’s lazy, uneducated, unwilling to do anything to improve herself or her lot — she just wants those government checks to keep rolling in. Oh, and she also dresses well, drives an expensive car, lives in a nice house or apartment, and spends her money on luxury items, etc.
Community Events, March 2014
Editor, We are home owners in the beautiful Passage View Lane community and we would like to publicly welcome Mr. Gunther Schmidt to walk in our community any time he pleases. We have had several delightful conversations with him during his past meanderings and admire him for making the trek up the hill with his cane. We also appreciate the added security of having another set of watchful eyes in our community.
Editor, On behalf of the SWHS jazz ensemble, we thank the fabulous WICA staff and volunteers along with the community at large for their generous support of the band’s fundraising concert Feb. 12.
Editor, The Fairgrounds in Langley is a wonderful community-owned property with a rich history and great potential. For generations we have enjoyed the fair every year, but it is not immune from the national trend of local fairs struggling to maintain too many aging structures, rising utility and insurance costs and not enough income to keep the property viable and adequately maintained for the annual event.
Editor With regard to the closure to the public of certain county offices on Fridays and the push to reopen them, maybe there is room for compromise. If the office staff has found it useful and efficient to close one day a week, move the day to Wednesday.
