Letters to the Editor
Editor, Camano Island and its fate is so closely tied to Stanwood, my hometown and place I love, that I feel compelled to take an interest in its politics. For that reason, I am writing to provide my heartfelt endorsement and support of Karla Jacks. Anyone with half an eye to Island County politics in the last few years should feel some shame for the low level of political discourse. In Karla we can all be proud.
Community Events, July 2014
Editor, Democrats have a choice this year. Americans are held in thrall to party politics. We are told for whom to vote. Democrats are expected to vote for the candidate bestowed with the magical “D.” The two major parties gerrymander congressional districts to ensure incumbents remain safe. It’s all about maintaining the status quo, not about representing people or fixing our nation’s problems. The result is the mess in Congress.
Editor, In a recent editorial about the Holmes Harbor Golf Course, you wrote, “If there is more to it than that, and this really is about money and making the most from an investment, then they should be clear about their intentions publicly, for the surrounding community has a vested interest in what happens at the golf course.”
Editor, This letter does not represent the Holmes Harbor Sewer District Board of Commissioners’ official opinion, inasmuch that it would take a vote to make that official even though I am the current president of the board. And I appreciate your effort to simplify the issues in your editorial of July 23 even though there are some complicated components to the Holmes Harbor Golf Course conflict.
Editor, The South Whidbey School District has lost a great volunteer, Richard Allen Thomas. For 17 years, Richard would help 3rd, 4th, and 5th graders in learning to enjoy math and reading. I am going to miss my friend when the schools return this fall.
