LETTER TO THE EDITOR | District District 2 can avoid problems ahead

  • Dec 20, 2014 at 4:00PM

Editor, For the past six years we have struggled in Diking District 1 to answer the same issues facing Diking District 2. We have learned: Diking Districts are “benefit assessment districts” and can only assess for benefits received.

LETTER TO THE EDITOR | Putney Woods travelers should exercise caution

  • Dec 20, 2014 at 12:00PM

Editor, Putney Woods has been devastated by the latest wind storm and is very dangerous. The Back County Horsemen put together a work party to clear downed trees, but people should be aware of widow-makers, limbs and precarious leaning trees.

LETTER TO THE EDITOR | South Whidbey firefighters’ work deserves thanks

  • Dec 17, 2014 at 12:00PM

Editor, The icicle Christmas lights over the balcony danced animatedly as the wind picked up, and then the lights flickered. I lit candles to be on the safe side and set about making dinner, but as I was about to serve it, my partner Leckey’s pager erupted in static: “South Whidbey Fire, staff your stations.”

LETTER TO THE EDITOR | Removing Dudley from IT board was a mistake

  • Dec 17, 2014 at 10:00AM

Editor, Can this shame get any worse? Scott Dudley was railroaded out of the Island Transit board. The only person allowed to ask questions was ousted from an organization that needs to be questioned. Heads in the sand do not have clear vision as to how to fix the problem which is Island Transit. It is time to disband Island Transit in its entirety and turn it over to another transit company, such as Skagit Transit or Community Transit.
