Letters to the Editor
Editor, One of the things that makes life on Whidbey Island unique is sharing our habitat with wildlife. Most of the time we enjoy our close encounters and other times we run into conflict. The owl that Melissa Ross came into contact with, as reported in The Record’s recent story “Owl attacks Clinton woman for 30 min.,” was most likely a barn owl, and was simply protecting the owlets that were nearby.
Community Events, August 2016
Editor, Just read in your paper that donations for the Langley Soup Kitchen are down. I go there almost every week. Along with Hearts and Hammers, it’s one of the best organizations we have on South Whidbey. They do a wonderful job, provide a very necessary service, and all in a friendly, competent manner.
Editor, I was delighted to see Peter Lawlor’s photo on the front page of the South Whidbey Record this morning. Colorful as ever and with the Lawlor twinkle in his eye, Peter remains Langley’s foremost scallywag as well as the holder of much South Whidbey history. Peter is a wonderful poet who has contributed often to South Whidbey’s literary community with readings and several volumes of his poetry.
Editor, I am in complete agreement with your editorial, “Rules for Horse Manure” dated Aug. 23, 2016. The trails on Whidbey Island belong to everyone and should be respected by all who use them for whatever reason. I happen to be an avid mountain bike rider and almost every day I go to the Putney Woods Trail system for my recreational ride.
Editor, I will have my horse wear poop diapers when dog owners have their dogs wear poop diapers. Otherwise, I’m happy to pay a fine. People, if you are those horse owners who don’t believe in making your steed walk while pooping, you create a nasty pile, it attracts flies and people have to walk around it.
