Memorial bench honors town’s ‘hot dog lady’
Nov 07 2012, 2:06 PM
The wooden bench is tucked beside the Island County Historical Museum with a view overlooking Front Street and Penn Cove.
It is the perfect spot for two friends, Vickie Chambers and Chuck Poust, to stop and reflect on the life of Charlotte Christensen, Coupeville’s beloved “hot dog lady.”
Thank you, first responders!

Spectators at the Coupeville/Chimacum football game at Port Townsend Saturday, Nov. 3, were treated to a track meet as the Cowboys won a wild one, 56-39.
The game featured a handful of big-yardage plays, many courtesy of the Wolves’ Jake Tumblin. The junior wingback piled up 407 all-purpose yards and four touchdowns. The game also featured a Coupeville rally that included three touchdowns in less than three minutes in the final period.

Community rallies to support injured pastor
Nov 07 2012, 2:08 PM
Life can change in an instant.
That’s about how long it took to turn life upside down for Coupeville Pastor Garrett Arnold and his family. One moment he was trimming a hedge, the next he was dangling from the side of a 35-foot embankment in Ledgewood — having either slipped and fallen or the ground beneath him having given way — he’s still not sure which.

They completed restoration work on their wood-shingled brooder house with the help of a matching grant from the Ebey’s Forever Fund, and they said they couldn’t be happier with how things turned out.
“We’re really pleased,” Bill Skubi said. “We really feel supported by the community.”
Thankful for protection NAS Whidbey provides
Nov 07 2012, 2:02 PM
I want to take a moment as we near Veterans Day and sincerely thank our action heroes at the Whidbey Island Naval Air Station.
Especially this year with the cruel progressive agitation aimed directly at action heroes whose idea of public service is not pontification, but protection for all of us from terror and for our Constitutional way of life.
Island Transit needs a fire lane done right
Nov 07 2012, 2:03 PM
Lighting is already an issue with the construction at Island Transit and I anticipate full involvement by Ebey’s Landing National Historical Reserve staff and the general public living around the transit facility in determining the level of acceptable light pollution from this large project.
We need to know their lighting plan now, because their construction lighting is already polluting the night for up to a mile in all directions.
Flashing speed signs aid in safety
Nov 16 2012, 8:07 AM
When Lee James, a longtime resident of Coupeville, hears a loud bang, he knows right away what it is: a car accident has occurred on Highway 20 just north of Coupeville.
A recent speed-limit sign upgrade near his home might help reduce these costly – and sometimes fatal – traffic encounters.
