Letters to the Editor
Editor, Just about one year ago, Island County finally filed its lawsuit against property owners on either side of Wonn Road which has been a public beach access since before statehood in 1889.

Editor, Recently I attended a hearing to give public input on the transportation element of Island County’s Comprehensive Plan. The “Comp Plan” serves as the policy document which will shape growth and development here over the next 20 years. I wasn’t able to get on the agenda, but I believe all of us can support a request to include in the plan identification of public beach access points.
Editor, Everyone’s heard of Ronald Reagan’s mythical “welfare queen.” She’s lazy, uneducated, unwilling to do anything to improve herself or her lot — she just wants those government checks to keep rolling in. Oh, and she also dresses well, drives an expensive car, lives in a nice house or apartment, and spends her money on luxury items, etc.
Editor, We are home owners in the beautiful Passage View Lane community and we would like to publicly welcome Mr. Gunther Schmidt to walk in our community any time he pleases. We have had several delightful conversations with him during his past meanderings and admire him for making the trek up the hill with his cane. We also appreciate the added security of having another set of watchful eyes in our community.
Editor, On behalf of the SWHS jazz ensemble, we thank the fabulous WICA staff and volunteers along with the community at large for their generous support of the band’s fundraising concert Feb. 12.
