LETTER TO THE EDITOR | Freeland needs a new name

  • Feb 25, 2015 at 2:00PM

Editor, I propose that the name of Freeland be changed to Freedom. After all, the land is no longer free. There is a Freedom, Calif., a small town near Watsonville, but seems like there is room for another.

LETTER TO THE EDITOR | “Other Desert Cities” was great

  • Feb 25, 2015 at 12:00PM

Editor, I just wanted to send a note along to let other people know what a superb play I think “Other Desert Cities” is. Whidbey Island Center for the Arts has put on a real winner. The set is perfect, the writing soulful and the overall staging of this gem was so well done.

LETTER TO THE EDITOR | Langley’s charm must be preserved

  • Feb 25, 2015 at 10:00AM

Editor, Langley business owners and government claim they need to reinvent Langley by offering a fun family attraction, the funicular. If the town needs to be reinvigorated, why not focus on the biggest attraction Langley has long held? The reason visitors and residents love Langley is to experience a small and charming rural town in a beautiful setting.

LETTER TO THE EDITOR | There goes the neighborhood

  • Feb 25, 2015 at 8:00AM

Editor, The invasion of Rite Aid in Freeland is just too sad. A friendly, warm, neighborly business has succumbed to a cold food mart that happens to have a pharmacy of some dubious character. Thank heavens some employees have chosen to remain in such an environment to remind us that a friendly, kind manner and well-supplied store used to be good business.

LETTER TO THE EDITOR | Helping Hand had lots of help

  • Feb 21, 2015 at 4:00PM

Editor, The move by Helping Hand of South Whidbey from Langley’s House of Hope to the campus of Trinity Lutheran Church went well. We are extremely grateful to the congregation of Trinity Lutheran Church for offering us a new home. We are also grateful to Second Use Building Supply in Seattle, JMC Cabinets in Everett, Jim Craft, Steve Hochenedel, Jeff Chiarizo Painting and BackBreakers for their assistance with the remodeling of the office space and the move.
