Letters to the Editor
Editor, What a privilege to have the Seattle Men’s Chorus return to Whidbey Island to perform a benefit concert for Citizens Against Domestic and Sexual Abuse, or CADA.
Community Events, April 2014
Editor, Large outbreaks of measles currently being reported in California, British Columbia and New York are already raising concerns as people travel and spread cases. Whatcom County, the San Jaun Islands and Seattle are currently reporting cases.
Editor, Reading all the negative letters concerning the cutting of the post office Garry oak tree, it seems to me that the ones protesting its removal most are the ones with the least knowledge of the health of the tree and the hazard it had become.
Editor, There once was a chicken named Chicken Little who, when an acorn fell on its head, thought the sky was falling. Chicken Little ran around convincing many people that the “sky is falling, the sky is falling.” Many of the farm animals all ran around in a tizzy yelling “the sky is falling, the sky is falling.” They ran to find the king and tell the king the sky is falling.
For years scientists have wondered why whales, for no apparent reason, would choose to cast themselves out of the water to die of dehydration on some beach. Now we know. They were trying to escape from the tortuous noise of our war machines. Not just explosives, but “active sonar,” used in antisubmarine warfare and to map the ocean floor.
