Editor, Our family owns a section of wooded undeveloped acreage on East Harbor Road in Freeland. A county road, Ander Park, services this property. Our son owns the farthest five acres of the property.
Editor, This is a rebuttal to Ms. Azar and her claim of people knowingly poisoning dogs. I highly doubt that anyone either using medical edibles or purchasing recreational edibles would leave them on a beach for a dog to find. To begin with, the cost alone is prohibitive and medical users will not just discard their medicine. I am willing to bet they got into something very rotten from the sea. it is a beach after all.
Editor, Our two dogs have both needed emergency veterinary services this past month from ingesting marijuana tidbits at Double Bluff Beach. Just a small amount of marijuana is toxic to dogs.
A resounding thank you to the group of volunteers that assisted our office by processing tax mail in 2015.
We hope you can join us at 12:15 p.m. Sunday, Nov. 29 at Trinity Lutheran Church in Freeland for the Whidbey/Paris Global Climate Rally.
I’m pleased the Island County Sheriff’s Office’s outdated, haphazardly compiled policy and inappropriate, unjust methods of procedure exercised in your jail facility have at last had the light cast upon them. It’s been due for decades.
You are driving south on State Highway 20 just south of Oak Harbor and the car just ahead of you catches your attention. It’s proceeding just under the speed limit and you notice that it is repeatedly drifting back and forth across the fog line on the highway.

As we approach our 15th year of hosting the North Whidbey Community Harvest, I would like acknowledge the people who make it happen each year. They are often overlooked and are deserving of recognition and praise for all they offer in order to provide for our wonderful community event.
Nobody likes to see trash strewn along our scenic roadways on Whidbey. Often it’s unintentional. Someone, however, has decided that it’s OK for them to dispose of their personal garbage along the highway.
As a concerned citizen and school bus driver of Whidbey Island, I have come to realize that on a daily basis there is an infraction made against my bus by drivers on the road, both automobiles and bicycles.
I now want to ask our commissioners: Why now, a critical time in meeting the county’s legal obligation to update the comprehensive plan, would you restructure the planning department and ask the director to resign?
It’s always a jolt to open the newspaper and see that an old acquaintance has passed on. This morning brought just such a jolt when I read about Larry Cort.
I have asked Island County on numerous occasions to provide data, but received no response. It’s hopefully time they learned the rules.
I want to thank the voters for their support in my re-election and I want to acknowledge the enormous effort put forth by my large and faithful army of campaign workers.
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.
