LETTER TO THE EDITOR | Gun initiative is a bad idea

  • Oct 29, 2014 at 4:00PM

Editor, State Initiative 594 is a bad idea. If I-594 were in place one year ago Jaylen Fryberg would still be dead and he would have still murdered another student and wounded four others. Neither I-594 nor the fact that the school is a “Gun Free Zone” stopped Jaylen Fryberg from murdering fellow students.

LETTER TO THE EDITOR | Noise control in Langley possible

  • Oct 29, 2014 at 12:00PM

Editor, I’ve worked in acoustics and noise control most of my life, and therefore have a few bona fides on the subject, and I take issue with Langley Planning Director Jeff Arango’s belief that sound level meters are “subjective.” That’s like saying that thermometers and smoke detectors are subjective. It’s what you do with the data that counts.

LETTER TO THE EDITOR | Endorsement for Treasurer

  • Oct 29, 2014 at 10:00AM

Editor, I hope voters have noticed that our Island County treasurer, Ana Maria Nuñez, has been endorsed by the Washington State treasurer as well as by fellow County treasurers. There’s a good reason for that: Ms. Nuñez is highly qualified and a leader in her field. Her peers know that.

LETTER TO THE EDITOR | What’s with all the airplane traffic?

  • Oct 28, 2014 at 6:00PM

Editor, I have been noticing greatly increased air traffic over the housetops of my neighborhood in the Campbell Road and Maxwelton area and I’m wondering what is going on. I have lived on South Whidbey for 32 years and have never been bothered by the occasional aircraft overhead. This summer, there has been a never-ending stream of low-flying small craft with extremely loud and obnoxious engines and propellers. Sometimes I wonder if I am in a war zone.
