Ledgewood landslide highlights need for special insurance
Mar 29 2013, 3:01 PM
After the landslide on Whidbey Island, the Northwest Insurance Council issued a reminder to homeowners and business owners that standard homeowners and business-insurance policies specifically exclude damage caused by natural disasters such as landslides.
“This very unfortunate situation really highlights the need for special insurance if you own property above or below a steep slope,” said Karl Newman, the council’s president, in a press release. “Property owners in high-risk areas need special coverage that is not included in a standard home or business insurance policy. The good news is that coverage is available through specialty carriers at an additional cost.”

Shouldn’t put up with childish behavior | Letters
Mar 29 2013, 3:28 PM
I agree with Greg Banks’ conclusion not to pursue criminal charges against councilmen Rick Almberg and Joel Servatius for their actions during a city council meeting Jan. 15. My problem is that if Mr. Banks wants to hold up the councilmen as heroes of the Constitution for defending their First Amendment right, he must also acknowledge Mr. Frails’ courage in trying to hold the duly-elected representatives of Oak Harbor accountable.
Though Banks found that Frails’ complaint did not have standing, the councilmen should not dismiss it as frivolous. Frail obviously felt he was harmed.
