Letters to the Editor
Editor, On behalf of the members of Whidbey Island Local Lending (WILL), I would like to thank you for your excellent article and editorial. You captured the essence of what we are trying to accomplish.
Community Events, September 2014
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.
Editor, I thinks it’s wrong to charge a fee to be able to read the newspaper on the internet. A lot of people don’t have money to subscribe to the paper, it’s expensive and not much in it to begin with.
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.
