Letters to the Editor
Editor, Friends of Friends Medical Support Fund would like to take this opportunity to thank the community for the ongoing support we receive. Friends of Friends has offered hope and support to South Whidbey residents since 1997 by providing financial assistance for medically-related expenses. In 2014, with the help of our wonderful Mr. South Whidbey candidates, generous donors, and able volunteers, Friends of Friends helped over 200 friends and neighbors with medical expenses.

Editor, I found the “Langley Rabbit Wars” story very interesting. In my veterinary practice, I deal with a number of wildlife issues, including predation of small pets. I would like to address the comment by Chief Dave Marks concerning raccoon and eagle predation on pets. Bottom line: it is extremely rare. Coyotes are almost always the culprit. In my nearly 30 years of practice, I have seen one cat that was killed by a raccoon.
Editor, I’m writing to you in regards to the article “Rep. Rick Larsen backs Whidbey Navy base, touts transportation” published in The Record, Jan. 20. The article states: “Toward the end of the meeting, the questions veered toward more fringe topics for the congressman. One man, who identified himself as a Ukrainian, asked where the indignation was over alleged human rights violations perpetrated by the new government in the now Russian-occupied area of Crimea. After visiting Ukraine a few weeks ago, Larsen said he supported President Barack Obama’s decision to support the new government.
Editor, Your Jan. 14 edition of The Record misquoted Island County Commissioner Helen Price Johnson in a ferries article. She did not say fares went up 200 percent since 2000. She said fares have risen “over 100 percent” (actually 101 percent) while nationwide inflation has caused prices to rise 33.2 percent over the same period.
Editor, This is a letter to Langley Mayor Fred McCarthy: The brief note in the Saturday Record brings up Langley parking. As a 40-plus-year resident of Clinton, I write to the current mayor from time to time to explain why I, and a lot of other residents, do not go into Langley.
