I saw my Letter to the Editor (July 16, Flyer is a tip that resident isn’t home) online today. Within 15 minutes, I had a personal visit from Marc Henneman, apologizing for the flyer in the door.
On July 10, the three Island County treasurer candidates participated in the League of Women Voters’ forum in Coupeville.
Sometime on Friday, thousands of men, women and children — well, teenagers — will arrive on Whidbey and traverse a combined total of approximately 34,000 miles of the island … on foot.
While I was driving south out of Freeland recently, I noticed someone had put up a string of signs on the side of the highway right where the speed changes from 45 to 55 mph.
Did the Deception Pass manager, Jack Hartt, just awake from a deep sleep?

Could the city, county and state police officers and newspapers be doing more to curtail the use of cell phones while driving?
Three or four ideas to make driving safer: A turn lane off State Highway 20 at Morris Road. At least just widen the shoulder so there is an escape for inattentive drivers behind you.
We have lived in our current home just south of Oak Harbor since 1992 and we were aware of the local Oak Harbor airport being nearby.
The letter, submitted by Citizens of Ebey’s Reserve Director Paula Spina, is confusing and misleading.
I remember that, a number of years ago, Whidbey Island Naval Air Station was on the Navy’s base closure list. It seems as though a lot of people had a different view of the situation then.
The Oak Harbor Yacht Club Buccaneers would like to thank all the local businesses and community partners who contributed to the 34th Annual Kids’ Fishing Derby.
To the other three people recently fired by Mayor Dudley, I would like to say thank you for your work. I have been told that all of you were excellent, talented workers who have served our city well.
