Banks: Oak Harbor councilmen not outlaws
Mar 25 2013, 8:26 AM
Two Oak Harbor councilmen did nothing more than exercise their First Amendment rights during a Jan. 15 meeting that spawned a controversy over Second Amendment rights, the Island County prosecutor concluded.
Prosecutor Greg Banks said Thursday he won’t pursue charges against councilmen Rick Almberg and Joel Servatius after reviewing a police investigation into their conduct.
In a lengthy press release, Banks said he wanted to counter misconceptions about the U.S. Constitution and the law as espoused by Oak Harbor Mayor Scott Dudley and gun-rights advocates.

Let’s make Easter a time to cheer up others in need | Faithful Living
Mar 22 2013, 3:29 PM
This week I began setting out spring decorations by placing a porcelain bunny next to a flowering African violet on our kitchen table. Next week I’ll gather Easter treats for my grown kids, even though they rarely eat candy these days and it’s no surprise who fills their Easter baskets. Easter Sunday we will welcome kids and dogs, noise and activity-gathering as a family to cook a large meal, tell stories, relax, and visit with friends who will drop by to see the Klope kids who ventured home for the holiday.
This Lenten season I’ve listened to and studied Handel’s Messiah in an effort to personally respond to the accounting of Christ’s life, death and the messages of resurrection. Hoping for greater insight, I have also read in the book of John. Penned by the Apostle John, son of Zebedee and brother of James sometime between A.D. 85 and 90, the book provides a personal and powerful account of Jesus through the eyes of this devoted follower.
Blame falls on agency officials | Letters
Mar 22 2013, 3:13 PM
I was at the port meeting when Rick Abraham defended himself against “unfounded attacks” by port officials’ in reference to access to public records. My recollection of the discussion differs from the reporting in the editorial written in the March 13 Whidbey News-Times.
The opinion section and front page article of the News-Times fails to highlight the circumstances surrounding the incident. In fact, in my opinion, the reporting gives the false impression of Mr. Abraham’s access to the port “after hours through a side door.” This implies an underhanded and clandestine entry. As stated at the meeting, he had the port director’s permission to enter the office and the harbor master and adjacent shop owner were instructed to allow Mr. Abraham access. Yet commissioners Weber and Bronson have publicly denounced his public records access as “illegal” and unethical.

Oak Harbor chamber’s logo gets a makeover
Mar 22 2013, 3:24 PM
The Oak Harbor Chamber of Commerce has gotten a makeover, of sorts.
The chamber shared a logo with the City of Oak Harbor for several years, a useful endeavor that helped “brand” the Oak Harbor area. However, chamber officials feel the time has come to do a little branding of its own.
“The old logo has served its purpose very well, but there has always been a certain level of confusion that goes along with having the same logo as the city,” Kathy Reed, Oak Harbor Chamber’s executive director, said.
