Letters to the Editor

LETTER TO THE EDITOR | Announcement was premature

  • Feb 10, 2016 at 4:00PM

Editor, I have been tempted to write a letter to the editor more often than anticipated since moving to the island, but the recent article proudly announcing the new name for Whidbey General Hospital as, “Whidbey Health” (Hospital Board to Vote on New Name) simply cannot be ignored. The article touts the excitement of CEO Geri Forbes in promoting the entire transition strategy and steps in accomplishing the unapproved decision by the board of commissioners.

LETTER TO THE EDITOR | WhidbeyHealth may not be the best new name

  • Feb 6, 2016 at 4:00PM

Editor, WhidbeyHealth? Is this a medical clinic? A fitness center? A health club? Perhaps it’s a health formula, or a “toast” to your health on Whidbey? It also sounds a lot like a health insurance company.

LETTER TO THE EDITOR | Langley Middle School Jazz Band is a must hear

  • Feb 6, 2016 at 2:00PM

Editor, Several hundred people gathered Sunday evening for Trinity Lutheran Church’s “burn the mortgage” celebration. Food, conversation and fun was abundant. Then, an additional highlight captured the crowd. Langley Middle School students, led by their highly energetic and passionate band leader — a first-year teacher — performed.
