Letters to the Editor
Editor, The members of Mardi Unit of Ryther Children’s Center League would like to express their sincere gratitude and appreciation to the Holmes Harbor Rod and Gun Club for extending their generosity in hosting the annual dinner/auction for Mardi Unit.
Community Events, October 2014
Editor, State Initiative 594 is a bad idea. If I-594 were in place one year ago Jaylen Fryberg would still be dead and he would have still murdered another student and wounded four others. Neither I-594 nor the fact that the school is a “Gun Free Zone” stopped Jaylen Fryberg from murdering fellow students.
Editor, I’ve worked in acoustics and noise control most of my life, and therefore have a few bona fides on the subject, and I take issue with Langley Planning Director Jeff Arango’s belief that sound level meters are “subjective.” That’s like saying that thermometers and smoke detectors are subjective. It’s what you do with the data that counts.
Editor, I hope voters have noticed that our Island County treasurer, Ana Maria Nuñez, has been endorsed by the Washington State treasurer as well as by fellow County treasurers. There’s a good reason for that: Ms. Nuñez is highly qualified and a leader in her field. Her peers know that.
Editor, I have been noticing greatly increased air traffic over the housetops of my neighborhood in the Campbell Road and Maxwelton area and I’m wondering what is going on. I have lived on South Whidbey for 32 years and have never been bothered by the occasional aircraft overhead. This summer, there has been a never-ending stream of low-flying small craft with extremely loud and obnoxious engines and propellers. Sometimes I wonder if I am in a war zone.
