Letters to the Editor
Editor, A commercial kitchen is alive and well on Whidbey Island. As I read The Record from June 24 edition about the Port of South Whidbey and Goosefoot thinking about a commercial kitchen, I was led to believe that there aren’t any kitchens on the island for start-ups and farmers markets, and even basic food processing.

Editor, It has become all too clear that Greenbank Farm, as we know it now, may change dramatically in the near future. Most of the business tenants have been leasing on a month-to-month basis for nearly three or more years, all the time hoping that issues between the Port of Coupeville commissioners and the Greenbank Farm Management Group would be resolved. For the past six months, port commissioners have regularly informed us that they were working on our new leases, which would be forthcoming “soon.”
Editor, After enjoying a delicious lunch at the new food truck on First Street I picked up a copy of Saturday’s Record and read a negative and largely trivial article about this pleasant new addition to Langley’s food scene. I had expected a very positive report on the surprisingly impressive and diverse menu, praise for the quality of the food and support for an appealing new attraction to our downtown.
Editor, I’m sorry the merchants of Langley are annoyed by the new food truck, but Langley needs more eating options in tourist season and the new food truck seems to be filling a need. My friends and I were delighted by the food last Friday; we had our dogs with us so we took lunch down to the picnic tables on the beach. Service was friendly and the orders were prepared quickly.
Editor, Tim Callison’s concerns about traffic safety at the marina are well founded, but his proposed solutions of installing a traffic light and routing all boat traffic down First Street are expensive and create too many other problems.
