Noise indeed a health concern for 65-plus | Letters


I don’t think it’s really that difficult to understand why many people who live in Coupeville hate the nasty loud plane noise during the day and especially at midnight.

To make matters worse, a new FAA report reveals people older than 65 subjected to loud plane noise have more incidents of hearing problems, heart rhythm disturbances, cerebrovascular events and more.

This is definitely a threat to the health and well being of many people in Coupeville and Ken Pickard should be thanked for all his efforts to restore peace and quiet to Coupeville.
