LETTER TO THE EDITOR | Film at The Clyde was awesome

  • Mar 28, 2015 at 6:00PM

Editor, On a rainy Saturday, March 21, some 200 people filled The Clyde Theatre in Langley to see a 1914 silent film entitled “In the Land of the Head Hunters.” This incredible film, created by Edward S. Curtis, was released in 1914 to rave reviews in Seattle and New York, but soon disappeared and was actually rescued from a dumpster in 1947.

LETTER TO THE EDITOR | Langley should post meeting date soon

  • Mar 28, 2015 at 8:00AM

Editor, Langley government has a nice website that they have obviously put some work into. Front and center is a calendar of government events. On April 14 there is a notice for a Langley Historic Preservation Commission meeting. Curiously, the big public meeting that will happen that day, the funicular meeting, isn’t listed, though the date has been known at least since it was announced on March 4 at the Langley Planning Advisory Board meeting.

LETTER TO THE EDITOR | Langley needs an ethics committee

  • Mar 28, 2015 at 6:00AM

Editor, Langley is in desperate need of an ethics committee. Most know of former Mayor Larry Kwarsick who falsified a document and intended to continue as mayor. Council members wanted him to remain in office dismissing the malfeasance (Dec. 18, 2012 council meeting minutes). Perhaps they agreed with the late Paul Schell who was quoted by Seattle Times columnist Danny Westneat as saying to the blogger who discovered the falsification, “Shame on you … for starting this. You should stay in your new California home and let us alone” (Seattle Times, Dec. 22, 2012).

LETTER TO THE EDITOR | Let’s get prepared for a possible Whidbey tsunami

  • Mar 25, 2015 at 4:00PM

Editor, Several times now I have gone back to my computer and watched videos of the tsunami disaster in Japan and thought about how vulnerable we are here on Whidbey Island for the same thing to happen. I also wonder how many people are prepared for such a disaster. It has been estimated that even a minor ocean-born tsunami that races in through the Strait of Juan de Fuca will take out the highway and power lines in several places, leaving South Whidbey stranded without power for several weeks.
