LETTER TO THE EDITOR | Hometown hero grateful, humbled by honor

  • Nov 21, 2015 at 12:00PM

Editor, I want to thank Susan Knickerbocker and Diana Putney, as well as all the other contributors, for the Hometown Hero article about me. This self examination and their exploration into my life was not easy for an old dude, like me. Hell, I took a female friend who holds a doctorate in psychology to coffee just to help me find enough self awareness to answer the questions from Susan.

LETTER TO THE EDITOR | Littering on private land is irresponsible, wrong

  • Nov 21, 2015 at 10:00AM

Editor, Our family owns a section of wooded undeveloped acreage on East Harbor Road in Freeland. A county road, Ander Park, services this property. Our son owns the farthest five acres of the property. He was selling and had an interested buyer. They had put down earnest money and the transaction was in escrow and ready to close.

LETTER TO THE EDITOR | Langley mayor deserves thanks for military service

  • Nov 18, 2015 at 2:00PM

Editor, I’m sure it is common knowledge among regular readers of letters to the editor in The Record that I have been a constant and recurring critic of the current mayor of Langley. Now it is time for me to thank him for his service to our country during the Vietnam conflict. Those of us who did not go have no idea of his experience, but we all owe him our gratitude.

LETTER TO THE EDITOR | County treasurer says thanks to volunteers

  • Nov 18, 2015 at 12:00PM

Editor, A resounding thank you to the group of volunteers who assisted our office by processing tax mail in 2015. Their generosity in donating their time to help us open mail in April, May, October, and November allowed us to complete our processing by a few days after the payment deadlines. Their labor created efficiencies by allowing Treasurer’s Office staff to post payments faster, and deposit money in the bank sooner.

LETTER TO THE EDITOR | South End veterans reflect on Veterans Day

  • Nov 18, 2015 at 10:00AM

Editor, This Veterans Day morning, a small group of men and women gathered at a coffee shop in Langley. Among us were those who had served with the Army, Air Force and Navy. There was no agenda, but what unfolded were reflections about how each had ended up with the military. There were thoughts of service for a greater cause, a sense of adventure, and a desire to get out into the world.
