LETTER TO THE EDITOR | New Navy jets are harmful to our ears

Editor,

To those who feel we Coupeville “whiners” have nothing to complain about concerning OLF Field.

The noise level in the past was irritating, but tolerable. Now with the introduction of the new growlers, the noise level has gone over the top.

We live near the top of Pennington Loop, not even right below the flight path, and recently I was working in my garage with the door open and as a growler flew near-by it actually physically hurt my ears.

I don’t feel I should have to wear ear protection in my own home. That’s why I signed on the petition.
