LETTER TO THE EDITOR | Island County treasurer’s comments need clarification

  • Jul 13, 2016 at 4:00PM

Editor, The article “Property prices in Island County soar 20 percent” published in the July 7 South Whidbey Record includes two quotations attributed to me. While the statements are correct, additional information is needed to put them into context. A property tax statement is mailed to every owner in Island County annually, even to those with $0 due; current and delinquent balances are included.

LETTER TO THE EDITOR | Fireworks on Whidbey sounded like dynamite

  • Jul 13, 2016 at 10:00AM

Editor, I live across the street from Goss Lake, and last night [July 4] we were bombarded with extremely loud, extremely late into the night, fireworks. The fireworks were interspersed with explosions from something unknown, so loud they rattled the windows. My husband said they were equivalent to about a one-quarter stick of dynamite.

LETTER TO THE EDITOR | South Whidbey should OK port’s fairgrounds plan

  • Jul 13, 2016 at 8:00AM

Editor, Every community needs a crown jewel as leverage for building on the local economy. Langley is lucky to have the shoreline as well as the fairgrounds. The fairgrounds act as the welcome sign to Langley. They spark the feeling of days gone by and idyllic childhoods. This sets the table for our village by the sea to seem legitimately quaint. The fairgrounds are more than just a welcome sign

LETTER TO THE EDITOR | Langley should switch to LEDs

  • Jul 12, 2016 at 2:39PM

Editor, Yay for Langley’s plan to convert street lights to LEDs! It’s a great move as it saves money, conserves energy and cuts down on maintenance costs because LEDs rarely need to be replaced. Like most lighting projects, good design is essential. For street lighting, the light needs to go where it is intended, i.e., streets or sidewalks, not the sky and not into neighbors’ windows.
