LETTER TO THE EDITOR | Island Transit fares a fair proposal

  • Sep 17, 2014 at 10:00AM

Editor, 1. Paratransit and bus cuts are required because we cannot afford a “fare free” transit system. Folks are in a bind resulting from Island Transit service cuts — mismanagement is the cause. Solutions must come from our transit system administration and board of directors. Public concerns and suggestions are needed. Transit users wonder why they cannot pay for, or toward, their needed transportation.

Editor, With respect to your recent article regarding some disagreement on fish and wildlife protections currently being discussed by the Island County commissioners: what Commissioners Helen Price-Johnson and Jill Johnson apparently do agree upon is a plan to designate as a “salmon stream” Bos/Swan Stream, which typically contains water only during the winter months when it rains profusely, and then it runs into Bos/Swan Lake on the west side of Whidbey Island.

LETTER TO THE EDITOR | Paying for the paper is wrong

  • Sep 13, 2014 at 2:00PM

Editor, With summer on Whidbey Island a fading memory, it’s time to pay attention to the candidates who are running for elected office and the ballot measures that will be before us in the general election on Nov. 4.
