Letters to the Editor
Editor, This letter is in response to two letters to the editor published Dec. 9 opposing the Langley funicular, which were responding to Eric Levine’s published viewpoint the week before.
Community Events, December 2014
Editor, For the past six years we have struggled in Diking District 1 to answer the same issues facing Diking District 2. We have learned: Diking Districts are “benefit assessment districts” and can only assess for benefits received.
Editor, Putney Woods has been devastated by the latest wind storm and is very dangerous. The Back County Horsemen put together a work party to clear downed trees, but people should be aware of widow-makers, limbs and precarious leaning trees.
Editor, The icicle Christmas lights over the balcony danced animatedly as the wind picked up, and then the lights flickered. I lit candles to be on the safe side and set about making dinner, but as I was about to serve it, my partner Leckey’s pager erupted in static: “South Whidbey Fire, staff your stations.”
Editor, Can this shame get any worse? Scott Dudley was railroaded out of the Island Transit board. The only person allowed to ask questions was ousted from an organization that needs to be questioned. Heads in the sand do not have clear vision as to how to fix the problem which is Island Transit. It is time to disband Island Transit in its entirety and turn it over to another transit company, such as Skagit Transit or Community Transit.
