Russel Douglas looked a little lost when he drove up a driveway off Wahl Road that December day.

He found where he thought he was supposed to be just down the road, minutes later, because that’s where somebody killed him.
CLINTON — Keep clam. Faced with four options for keeping the ferry terminal in Mukilteo, South Whidbey residents said they most liked an alternative that would move the ferry landing to the north.

LANGLEY — The city’s hottest nightspot is proving to be a bit too popular for neighbors of the bustling business. Tension between Mo’s Pub & Eatery and several residents who live near the restaurant has grown since Mo’s opened last April. Though the owners of the business have tried to solve some of the noise and parking problems that have irritated neighbors since the British-style pub opened its doors, some who live nearby say Mo’s is a bad fit for the Second Street neighborhood.
