Editor, Thank you to the Coupeville Library for hosting my book signing event.
Editor, I just read your editorial characterizing Mayor Scott Dudley’s sortie to get new leadership for Island Transit as “inappropriate.” No, it’s inappropriate for Bob Clay to fail to right Island Transit and cast blame on State Auditor’s Office employees for his failures.
Editor, Now that the November 2014 election results have been certified, I want to officially thank the voters of Island County for electing me to the office of Island County treasurer. I will do my best to maintain your trust and respect in this important office of our local government.
Editor, A big thank-you goes to Mark Laska at Ciao and his unbelievable staff for hosting our fourth annual Soroptimist International of Coupeville, Women & Wine event.
Editor, I was distressed to read the letter vilifying folks who didn’t vote - to be fair, many have been pummeled into a sense of hopelessness by the minions of the wealthy.
Editor, Buy a dad or loved one a gun safe for Christmas. I waited in the aftermath of the Marysville-Pilchuck High School shooting to write this letter so as to not jump on the emotional bandwagon.
Editor, I would like to thank you for the faith and support you have bestowed upon me as I served as your Island County treasurer. Though I was not successful in my bid to continue to serve you, I have no regrets.
Editor, This election has been just plain disgusting. Not because of who won or lost, but because of what did not happen. Two-thirds of the people in this country who are eligible to vote did not vote.
Editor, It is fitting that this season of Thanksgiving is also the season to give thanks to the adoptive parents and families who grace our communities.
Editor, I am probably one of a few Island Transit users speaking up. As such, I stand with Oak Harbor Mayor Scott Dudley in his efforts to at the least get Island Transit an advertising contract and get new Island Transit board members who will take their responsibilities seriously.
Editor, Recent discussion of Island Transit finances confuses the State Audit Report with the separation agreement for the previous executive director.
Editor, It was a cold and stormy morning. It was raining sideways. The race course was muddy and slick. But none of that stopped nine fabulous teams from coming out to the seventh annual Harvest Fest Relay Races.
Editor, At a recent forum, candidate for treasurer Wanda Grone indicated that, were she required to make budget cuts, the “position” she would eliminate would be that of the foreclosure deputy.
Editor, Island Beach Access wants to thank the people of Coupeville and Peg Tennant, Saturday Market manager.
Editor, I sit here in my nice, safe Whidbey Island home and try to synthesize the horrid events in my hometown of Marysville.
Editor, Whidbey Environmental Action Network wants to thank all who participated and contributed to a very successful, fun for all “WEANFest: Celebrating 25 years of Protecting Our Native Biodiversity.”
Editor, I recently became aware of issues concerning the U.S. Navy’s use of the auxiliary airfield outside of Coupeville by a group calling itself Citizens of Ebey’s Reserve, a group that seems to have been created by www.moveon.org
Editor, Readiness To Learn would like to take this opportunity to thank its many supporters of the Back To School Program in Coupeville.
Editor, South Whidbey Senior Services recently held a meeting with Island Transit staff to discuss paratransit service cuts.
Editor, Here I go again. I am 96 years old and I’m not a mental giant like some of the leaders of the anti-Outlying Field group think they are.
