LETTER TO THE EDITOR | Ousting Greenbank Farm Management Group was ‘shocking, unreasonable’

  • Jul 29, 2015 at 2:00PM updated Jul 30, 2015 at 6:23PM

Editor, To say the decision by two of the three Port of Coupeville commissioners, Marshall Bronson and John Carr, voting to break the agreement that has been ongoing for over 15 years with the Greenbank Farm Management Group (GFMG) was a surprise, is a profound understatement. Shocking, unreasonable, out-of-nowhere, indefensible and underhanded all say it better.

LETTER TO THE EDITOR | Cutting in Whidbey ferry lines must stop

  • Jul 29, 2015 at 6:00PM

Editor, Thanks for the great column on ferry cutters! I have written many letters to the Washington State Patrol, as well as ferry system, which have fallen on deaf ears.

LETTER TO THE EDITOR | Fireworks ban was needed in Island County

Editor, I saw in The Record last week that a fireworks ban was going to be discussed at the meeting until Commissioner Rick Hannold said that he had changed his mind and would not vote for the ban. He said the reason was his “core values” and the feedback from the community.

LETTER TO THE EDITOR | Clinton business owner says ‘thank you’

  • Jul 29, 2015 at 12:00PM

Editor, To all my many friends, I just want to take this time to let you all know how profoundly touched I was by the outpouring of love that was on display this past Saturday night, July 18. I’m not sure what the future holds for me, as Shirley’s will not be able to reopen. Because of your kindness I know the road will be far smoother than I originally anticipated. The list of people to thank is far too extensive to list here, but I would be remiss if I didn’t take the time to mention just a few.

LETTER TO THE EDITOR | Greenbank Farm decision made little sense

  • Jul 29, 2015 at 10:00AM

Editor, The editorial on July 11 was spot on. It identified farm problems and criticized the abrupt cancellation of ongoing negotiations. The commissioners — two with an agenda and short on ethics, one a stand up guy. The Management team — given a raw deal.
