The silver lining to an auction benefitting the Boys & Girls Club of Oak Harbor last March has arrived in time for the start of the school year.
I read Mr. Schoening’s letter to the editor regarding Burger King and had a question — “What would you do about it then? Erect a big fence and force the companies to pay the taxes or else?”
This is in response to a letter to the editor from Richard Johnston, Douglas, Ariz.
As stated in Scott Vanderlinden’s letter to the editor, thanks to the United States Supreme Court, a student’s right to protest in schools was affirmed.
Thank you to the Island County Auditor’s Office staff and temporary election workers for their speedy yet meticulous processing of the primary ballots during this week’s manual recount required by state statute.
Congratulations to the Oak Harbor School District and Board — the Office of Superintendent of Public Instruction test scores for the 2013-14 year improved in nearly every category.
Tuesday night, just before 9 p.m., I received an unwanted “robo call.”
I would prefer to listen to our Navy jets than dogs barking. This is a reminder to dog owners in the city of Oak Harbor that school nights and work nights are quiet time
I have been following the comments regarding the recent hydroplane races in Oak Harbor, and I want to be sure credit goes to the people who brought this fun event to us.
I would like to mention that when I read the counterpoint (“Comparison is Wrong...”) to my Aug. 9 letter to the editor, President Barack Obama was in Martha’s Vineyard on vacation while the world was going to hell in a handbasket.
Mayor Scott Dudley, your paranoia is showing. Perhaps...
The latest move by Burger King is not in the best interest of this country or the hard working citizens of this country.
In 1965, John Tinker, his sister Mary Beth and a friend were sent home from school for wearing black armbands to protest the Vietnam War.
My wife and I, who are new to the area, have read the Whidbey News-Times for about two weeks with interest in becoming a subscriber, but so far I have been very disappointed by the letters to the editor that are chosen for publication.
If Joe Kunzler wants to call protests against being deceived in a land deal “whining,” that’s what he wants to call it.
Your editorial in the Aug. 23 edition of the Whidbey News-Times is right on target. Separating Ms. Martha Rose from Island Transit is critical to regaining public trust in that organization.
Kudos to Director Jackie Apodaca and the entire cast of William Shakespeare’s “The Taming of the Shrew.”
Our group must protest Oak Harbor’s shocking disregard for our health and well-being with the ridiculous amount of noise and excitement brought upon our peace-loving community by the hydroplane races here.
As a father and grandfather of wonderful children, I would implore you to change your minds on permitting the sale and consumption of alcohol at my Fort Nugent Park — we have our children’s soccer games there; we play in the park; we use the Frisbee golf; we have picnics.
With local elections fast approaching, I write in support of Karla Jacks for the position of Island County commissioner.
