Letters to the Editor
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.

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. Their idea of sending out letters to educate people that cheat is not nice, it’s ridiculous. Most people know that by kindergarten time but some still like to “get away with something” by cheating.
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.
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.
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.
