Bravo to everyone who was involved in the production of “Spamalot” at the Whidbey Playhouse.
I found the cartoon you selected and published on the opinion page of the Whidbey New-Times Saturday, Feb. 28, in extremely poor taste.
In response to state Sen. Barbara Bailey’s recent email survey, I sent the following response, which did not appear to go through to her directly:
Does Ms. Tarrant of Whidbey General Hospital Board of Directors understand that WGH is a public hospital and telling a reporter, “she considered it ‘inappropriate’ for a newspaper reporter to ask her questions about the new CEO’s contract,” is, in my opinion, inappropriate.
Having viewed the front page of your Feb. 21, 2015, edition, “Kraken Released” puts me at a loss to understand the standards used to classify something as “art.”
Several months ago, as we were coming out of a supermarket in Oak Harbor, I tripped and fell in the parking lot, hitting my head on a parked car.
Pat Palla said it well in her Feb. 18 letter to the editor titled, “Taxpayer outraged by hospital’s secrecy.”
I am compelled to respond to the Baileys’ Feb. 21 letter to the editor regarding redemption versus condemnation.
I enjoyed the cartoon on Brian Williams in your Feb. 7 edition of the Whidbey News-Times in the Opinion section.
The Jan. 14 edition incorrectly paraphrased what Commissioner Helen Price-Johnson said in the ferries article.
The articles covering the Naval Reserve Officers Training Corp, or NROTC, and culinary programs are great. It is a real source of pride and optimism that we have kids and programs like this on the island.
Holy crow! The list of words describing lawyer theft from clients here in our own little island starts with “disgust.”
I begin by stating this patriotic missive is solely in the concern of public safety –- with great reluctance and reflection with a sense of responsibility to those local voices working to coexist with Outlying Field Coupeville.
I really appreciated the editorial, “New hospital CEO must back promises with action.”
The so-called Citizens of Ebey’s Reserve, or COER, a small group whose key members were part of “WISE,” which helped place Whidbey Island Naval Air Station on the 1991 Base Realignment and Closure list, has been “networking” with like-minded, small groups in Lopez Island, Port Townsend and, now, Sequim.
It’s now been 15 months since the Navy received an Adverse Effect determination by the state Historic Preservation Officer on the cement bock wall installed at Outlying Field Coupeville.
As the manager of the Whidbey Family Birth Place, I would like to respond to the letter to the editor in this past Wednesday's newspaper about the 2013 cesarean section rate at Whidbey General Hospital.
I have a much better idea for use of the felled Garry oak tree than the ones noted in the Saturday edition of the Whidbey News-Times. My idea is more apt to capture the true spirit of our Oak Harbor leaders.
I am writing in support your editorial about vaccination.
I am greatly concerned about the cesarean rates at Whidbey General Hospital.
