Letters to the Editor
Editor, “Thou shall not pass!” was the Oglala Sioux and First Nations’ response to the State Department’s determination that the Keystone XL pipeline would not contribute to climate destabilization nor endanger the Oglala aquifer.

Editor, Right-on! The Coupeville Chamber of Commerce, the Front Street merchants, the Whidbey General Hospital and residents of Coupeville should be given the opportunity to express their opinions on shifting control of the Coupeville police to the county sheriff.
Every time one of us walks or drives by the beautiful garden in front of the Island County Museum, please take the time to tip your hat, salute or just think happy thoughts about our own Coupeville Garden Club. In late fall of 2013, John Bachert and his flock of gardeners descended on our well-established (aka overgrown) drought-tolerant garden.
Thank you to the town employees who decorated Cook’s Corner Park and Coupeville Recreation Hall. It’s a beautiful job and admired by many. We also have enjoyed seeing all of the snow people decorating our streets. Thanks to the person who started this tradition and to the helpers who have re-painted when needed and placed them around town. The snow people are very unique.
Early in the morning on Dec. 20, I drove through falling snow to bake at our restaurant, the Knead & Feed, on Front Street. Less than an hour after arriving at work, the Town of Coupeville snow plow was carefully plowing our street and others.
