LETTER TO THE EDITOR | Pat Goff’s memorial service received well

  • Apr 30, 2016 at 8:00AM

I wanted to thank all those who attended my mother Pat Goff’s memorial service at the BISC last Sunday. It was very nice to see everyone.

LETTER TO THE EDITOR | Senior Services, volunteers deserve our thanks

  • Apr 27, 2016 at 2:00PM

Editor, I had a problem this week in dealing with Medicare. It’s a huge national agency. Gamely, I phoned the 1-800 number. The voicemail system wanted first my state and then my zip code. Then it connected me to Senior Services of Island County, in Bayview. I spoke briefly with Director Lynae Slinden, who promised to have someone phone me before noon.

LETTER TO THE EDITOR | Langley Main Street deserves a pat on the back

  • Apr 27, 2016 at 12:00PM

Editor, Congratulations to all the hard working Langley Main Street Association volunteers who made Frick Lane into a delightful walkway through Langley’s past. What was an overgrown and ill-lit alley is now a pleasant and informative thoroughfare. The reader boards chronicle the history of our community (check out the all-female city government of 1920) and the plantings and new lighting create a safe and attractive space.

LETTER TO THE EDITOR | Let’s set sail for Mars, home of Goddess of Peace

  • Apr 27, 2016 at 10:00AM

Editor, I read with shock and dismay the Earth Day edition of The Record, describing the browning and withering of our once green island. Possession Point Park has been kidnapped by pirates. Choochokam is drowning in litter and rubbish. Whidbey Environmental Action Network whines about clear cuts. An ancient seer named POGO proclaimed, “We have met the enemy and he is us.” We must act quickly on “island time,” with lots of advance notification.
