Letters to the Editor
It’s not easy to get our arms around the situation within our Washington State Parks system.
Community Events, May 2016
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.
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.
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.
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.
