Deftly moving from branch to branch of the old oak tree, Jesse Brighten put on a performance in Langley this past week that was part trapeze artist, part mountain climber.
If there is an iconic “Mom and Pop” of South Whidbey, the Wimberly couple fit the role. Bob and Audrey have lived on South Whidbey for 44 years and owned Saucy’s Pizza in Clinton for 19 years.
The crows have landed and they are all over downtown Langley. No, not the flying black Aves that populate many streets and backyards in town. These crows were created by metal artist Scott Alexander and wood artist Mike McVay.
A glorious day on Saturday welcomed more than 400 volunteers who worked on 36 homes throughout South Whidbey on the 20th anniversary of Hearts & Hammers. Needed repairs were given to homeowners like John and Micky O’Brien, who could not do the work alone. John just turned 80 and despite keeping busy with upkeep on his house, some things he can no longer do, like climbing up a ladder.
