Letters to the Editor
Editor, I attended the most recent meeting of Island Transit’s Board of Directors on Jan. 16, 2015. It was a breath of fresh air! With three new board members — Island County Commissioner Jill Johnson Pfeiffer, Island County Commissioner Rick Hannold, and Oak Harbor City Councilman Rick Almberg — the meeting ran smoothly. There is a new chairman of the board as well as a new secretary.
Community Events, January 2015
Editor, The South Whidbey Commons would like to thank this wonderful community for their support this year. Thank you to our patrons, to the over 190 donors, and to local organizations, including Puget Sound Energy, the Langley Community Club, South Whidbey Academy Youth in Philanthropy, Whidbey Institute, and St. Augustine’s Episcopal Church Women. With your help, the Commons is on the road back from surviving the Second Street construction to thriving in 2015.
Editor, We do a disservice to Dr. King when we commemorate his life and ignore the prophetic message he left behind. Our too-often sanitized remembrance focuses on his quest for civil rights. What is being whitewashed from Dr. King’s legacy is his message about war and growing militarism.
Editor, The members of South Whidbey Community Church would like to thank many wonderful people who donated to replace our stolen log splitter.
Editor, On Tuesday, Jan. 13, I was appalled and not just a little scared, for there were people walking along Highways 525 and 20 about 5:30 p.m. going north on the right side of the road in the dark. Two different groups around Houston and Race Roads.
