Need is great to help Whidbey’s homeless teens | Faithful Living

  • May 17, 2014 at 1:00AM

It’s wedding season and thoughts of my own wedding and marriage preparation, some 33 years ago now, came to mind this week. I vividly recall asking our pastor to forgo extended comments about children. It wasn’t that we didn’t want kids; we were simply not in the “having kids’s mindset.” We had just graduated from college and our energies focused on building our careers, our marriage and our home. I distinctly recall thinking, “Someday we’ll have kids.”

Grateful for memories, experiences at CHS | Letter

  • May 17, 2014 at 1:00AM

Editor, I am a senior who is going to graduate from high school in less than a month and there are just a few words I would like everyone to hear before I leave for college in the fall. My experience living in Coupeville has been one that has impacted me significantly and shaped me into the person I am today. I moved here when I was going into first grade and have been here ever since. I have met a lot of great people throughout the years I’ve lived here, and I would just like to say thank you to all the people who have helped me grow and pushed me to put all my effort into something, whether it’s on an assignment in school or during a drill during practice.

Guy who flipped bird not seeking real answers | Letter

COER can fly flag upside down all they want | Letter

  • May 17, 2014 at 4:00AM

Editor, The most recent Whidbey News-Times editorial titled, “Just because you can doesn’t mean that you should,” chastised the Citizens of Ebey’s Reserve, or COER, for flying the U.S. flag upside down at a rally intended to end landing practices at Outlying Field Coupeville and eliminate the EA-18G Growler presence on Whidbey Island. I vehemently disagree with COER’s goals, but I also viscerally disagree with the News-Time’s editorial.
