LETTER TO THE EDITOR | Nuñez deserves another four years

  • Oct 24, 2014 at 4:31PM

Editor, I appreciate Island County treasurer Ana Maria Nuñez’s leadership in coordinating this last year the PAC’s User Group which develops the software programming priorities of the county treasurer’s True Automation property tax collection system for 13 counties in Washington. Even during difficult personal and family health issues over the last 12 months, Ana Maria continued to participate in the discussions and decisions of the Washington State Association of County Treasurers (WSACT), including state legislation and participating on WSACT committees. She is a strong advocate for excellence in treasury management and an asset to the citizens of Island County.

LETTER TO THE EDITOR | Breast cancer cure or breast cancer quackery?

  • Today at 2:00PM

Editor, As this is breast cancer awareness month, I would like to make everyone aware of the possible cure. Please take an hour from your life and watch “Clearing the Smoke: The science of cannabis.” This documentary, produced by Montana PBS and available for free viewing on their website, contains an explanation of the mammalian endocannabinoid system and the use of cannabidiol to trigger cell death in cancers. This will give you a very good place to start in your understanding of cannabidiol, the endocannabinoid system and receptors, and programmed cell death. Science, instead of rhetoric or politics.

LETTER TO THE EDITOR | Vote “Yes” on Initiative 594

  • Today at 6:00AM

Editor, I finally went and read the text of the Initiative 594, which would require background checks for all gun sales, not just those in gun shops. I have to say it seems like a reasonable initiative. Currently no background check is required if you buy a gun from a gun show, on the internet, or anywhere except from a licensed gun shop. With a loophole that big, why bother to have any background check law at all?

LETTER TO THE EDITOR | Jacks deserves commissioner job

  • Oct 22, 2014 at 12:00PM

Jacks deserves commissioner job Editor, I want to thank Island County Commissioner Aubrey Vaughan for the courage of his convictions and for his willingness to act on them. His endorsement of Karla Jacks reflects well on him, Karla Jacks and Island County. It is time for all islanders to move toward unity in an effort to build and sustain our community. Karla deserves his endorsement and our vote. She is a well-respected community member with the proven ability to lead, develop consensus, and make positive contributions for the benefit of youth, seniors, business and the environment.

LETTER TO THE EDITOR | McDowell’s letter was disappointing

  • Oct 22, 2014 at 10:00AM

Editor, Saturday, I was sorry to see the letter from former hard working county commissioner Mac McDowell. I have always respected his work for Island County. In his letter he states what he believes are Karla Jacks’ positions on Outlying Field and Naval Air Station Whidbey Island. Interestingly just Friday, I had several neighbors state the same concerns. Being a strong supporter of the base and OLF, I called her campaign and talked to her campaign manager, who stated Karla Jacks’ support for OLF and the base then directed me to her web site (jacksforcommissioner.org), which states the following:
