Editor, Here I go again. I am 96 years old and I’m not a mental giant like some of the leaders of the anti-OLF group think they are. I am old fashioned enough to know there’s an easy way to solve most problems. If my family were home when the planes started going over my house, I would say, “Here come our noisy friends.”
Editor, Let me say right from the start that I completely, wholeheartedly and unequivocally endorse Rick Hannold for election to the District No. 3 seat on the Island County Board of Commissioners. I strongly urge all of you who were so kind as to honor me with your votes in last month’s primary to cast your vote for Rick this November.
Editor, We need to vote for Rick Hannold for Island County commissioner, District 3, this November. Here’s one big reason why: “Progressives” backing liberal Karla Jacks for the District 3 job are after Whidbey Island Naval Air Station.
Editor, Concerning Island Transit and Ms. Martha Rose, I feel I must acknowledge this issue. I have never been a supporter of the free bus service.

For years the North Whidbey Park and Recreation board of directors consisted of either parents of the tax-supported youth swim team or members of the adult tax-supported masters swim team.
On March 10, 2014, the Whidbey News-Times reported on the settlement of the lawsuit brought by Neil Romney and Vikki Robinson against the North Whidbey Park and Recreation District.
On Aug. 22, I attended the Island Transit board of directors meeting to learn more about why Island Transit found itself with $0 in the bank and had to borrow $850,000 to pay its employees and $1.3 million to pay off its remaining cost share of the new IT facility.
The only bond measure I have voted for since establishing residence on this island was the transportation bond of a few years ago.
I hate the extremist Washington, D.C., politics — be they Left or Right — that are driving our nation into the ground.
With summer on Whidbey Island a fading memory, it’s time to pay attention to the candidates who are running for elected office and ballot measures that will be before us in the Nov. 4 general election.
“Perspective” (Tradition-Honor-Sacrifice) Two iron eagles stand proudly side by side; at ease;
This is in response to Maryon Attwood’s June 14 letter for the halt of Field Carrier Landing Practice at Outlying Field.
I think the anti-Outlying Field Coupeville group needs to be told about Coupeville before any of them were born or even heard of Coupeville.
Along with the state Department of Transportation project to improve traffic flow in Oak Harbor, local drivers can also help alleviate congestion with an easy adjustment in their driving habits.
