Letters to the Editor
Editor, Good Cheer has received so many expressions of gratitude this past year, that I am both heartened and humbled as I write this year’s holiday appeal letter. Here are just a few that touched my heart:
Community Events, December 2013
Editor, I am not writing this letter in response to any one article or issue. I am writing on the subject of “respect.” Who am I? I’m a sometime-Democrat, sometime-Republican, always-independent resident of Whidbey. People have disagreed with my voiced opinions, and I’ve disagreed with theirs. But there is one common thread to those disagreements, and that is respect; respect for the person we disagree with.
Editor, When I travel along the west side of Lake Washington, from the arboretum to Seward Park, I am amazed at the foresight that the public officials had over 100 years ago. They had a vision of the future that included beautiful places for the masses to enjoy, for free, with their families.
Editor, The Langley United States Postal Service requires approximately 2,400 mailboxes in the Langley service area to be raised to 46 inches above the ground. To do this will require installing a taller support post, which must be set in the ground like a fence post, i.e. a 6-foot post set in the ground about 2 feet deep. A good installation would be to set this post in dry ready-mix concrete after digging a post hole for this purpose. The cost for the post and concrete to achieve this is $6.82 — plus $2.79 for mix and 84 cents tax.
Editor, Those of us medically, physically challenged folks who now face losing access to high-quality medicinal marijuana feel a great injustice is being made in the attempt to rescind licenses for our recently accepted providers of its benefits.
