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.

It was an amazing construct and the view of the countryside during the ascent and descent was amazingly beautiful.

LETTER TO THE EDITOR | How about all the facts before proceeding?

  • Dec 13, 2014 at 12:00PM
