Stuurmans purchase makes way for street
Nov 01 2012, 12:44 PM
The Town of Coupeville is one step closer to building a new street to connect Broadway and North Main.
A timeline has not yet been established for the transportation project, and Coupeville Mayor Nancy Conard said it could take 20-30 years for the Fourth Street extension to be completed.
From downtown Coupeville, Madrona Way to Coveland Street currently provides the most direct connection between Broadway and Main streets. A secondary corridor meanders through residential neighborhoods.
Ballot count requires attention to detail
Nov 07 2012, 10:49 AM
When Greenbank resident Anne Hallam called the Island County Elections Office with a problem with her ballot, she was shocked by the instructions they gave her.
Hallam had voted, sealed the ballot inside the two envelopes, and signed her name. She then realized she had signed the envelope with her husband’s name typed on it.
Lions stage performance – behind the scenes
Nov 01 2012, 12:42 PM
The circular saw whines as Bill Jones pushes a panel of wood through its blade, neatly cutting it in half.
Jones is among about a dozen members of the Central Whidbey Lions Club who have been building a set for an upcoming performance at the Whidbey Playhouse, a community theater in Oak Harbor.
The volunteers have put in almost 400 hours on the project, which will be revealed to the public when the theater’s late-November production of “FrUiTCaKeS” hits the stage.
Mother Mentors offer support – and practical help
Nov 01 2012, 12:58 PM
“I came to a time in my life when I knew I still had one thing I wanted to do – to reach out to mothers with young children,” said Kristin Lasher, founder of Mother Mentors.
“I had a rough time myself when I had young children, so my heart goes out to them,” she said. “I know how alone a mom can feel.”
Greenbank group happy with review
Nov 01 2012, 12:00 PM
Speaking on behalf of the Greenbank Farm Management Group, I’d like to respond to the article about the Port Of Coupeville’s review panel and concerns about our finances (“Accountant resigns from Greenbank Farm post,” Oct. 25).
The letter from Georgia Gardner that is discussed in the article alludes to accounting and tax reporting deficiencies only in the most general and undefined way. For an organization that strives to be effective and transparent, we find this extremely frustrating in that we have no specifics to respond to.
We must work together to make Greenbank Farm sustainable
Nov 01 2012, 12:01 PM
In response to the recent article The Whidbey Examiner about the financial concerns at the Greenbank Farm (“Accountant resigns from Greenbank Farm post,” Oct. 25), I would hope that specific details will be forthcoming, so that if errors were made, things could be quickly remedied.
It is unfortunate that in a contentious political climate, issues become devisive, distorting the larger picture.
Haugen has been too effective to lose now
Nov 01 2012, 12:02 PM
Many years ago I ran for the state Legislature from our district and managed, despite being endorsed by two governors and a U.S. Senator, to come in third.
Second place went to a Republican from Oak Harbor that Governors Evans and Spellman classified as a “troglodyte.” (Trogs in history were barbarians who lived underground.)
Thank you, Greenbank, for your support

When I arrived in Greenbank as postmaster three and a half years ago, I had zero postmaster experience.
My boss gave me an opportunity and took a chance that I would land on my feet with this appointment. I believe I have, and in large part it was due to a very patient and incredibly supportive community.
Everyone should vote for Jill Johnson
Nov 01 2012, 12:04 PM
We are voting for Jill Johnson to be one of Island County’s commissioners. In the short time we have known and worked with Jill, we have concluded she has the necessary skills and qualities we feel the position needs.
Homola cares about all, not just some
Nov 01 2012, 12:05 PM
I got to meet Angie Homola last night and I could see why her opponent has attempted to keep Angie from speaking at certain community forums.
Think of a 10,000-piece puzzle with pieces scattered miles apart, some on very hard-to-reach shelves. Angie is so bright, she can keep track of what’s on every single piece, knows where to find it and knows how each piece fits together. Even if the picture on the box has been trampled, she holds the vision of what it can be.
