LETTER TO THE EDITOR | Georgia Gardner is right for hospital commissioner

  • Aug 1, 2015 at 2:00PM

Editor, Georgia Gardner wants to continue to serve our community as she has in the past as a CPA, a business owner and six years as a state legislator. She is a priceless member of the Whidbey General Hospital Board of Directors. Georgia is the financial expert on the board. When she was growing up in Coupeville, there was no hospital. Some community minded members found a way to create one. Now she wants to continue to carry the torch to provide the best medical services to the residents of and visitors to Whidbey Island.

LETTER TO THE EDITOR | State patrol needs to step up and catch ferry cutters

  • Aug 1, 2015 at 12:00PM

Editor, I read your column about ferry cutters with total sympathy. I have written before about this subject myself. I use the HERO line, with never an expectation that it will do any good. I don’t want to get in a physical fight or get shot over a ferry cut.

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. 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.

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

  • Jul 29, 2015 at 4:00PM

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.
