  • May 18, 2016 at 6:00PM

Island County Commissioners Jill Johnson and Rick Hannold and others have lost focus. If it’s dry enough to impose a stage-two burning ban, it’s certainly too dry to light fireworks in the forest of the unincorporated areas.

  • May 18, 2016 at 5:00PM

Harry Anderson’s column hit the nail on the head. Whidbey Island would be a much less livable community without the hundreds of nonprofit organizations that address the various needs of our community. We have organizations that attend to the issue of homelessness, both human and animal, the needs of seniors and youth, our history, our beaches, our open spaces and a hundred other worthy causes.

Grateful for show of community support | Letter
