Letters to the Editor
Editor, Thank you, kind gentleman, for coming to my rescue. Under embarrassing circumstances I met Max from Lancaster, Pa., in town as a tourist, taking a break from visiting his kid, stationed on Whidbey. He just happened to be on hand to be my hero on Coupeville’s historic Front Street.
Community Events, December 2013
Editor, This letter is regarding a confrontation that was originally sold as a conversation between a Coupeville resident and I at the Tuesday Navy EIS scoping. Although the Coupeville resident, I believe, acted like a bully, alleged I wanted “a war machine everywhere I go,” and brought up my bullied childhood, I sincerely apologize to the Coupeville town marshal for my angry outburst.
Editor, The Veterans Day program at the high school was a thrill. I thank all those who participated to make it an event we will long remember.
Editor, I just wanted to say kudos to your reporter, Sara Hansen. She did the article for my annual Model Railroad Open House. As a result we had more than 350 visitors, an all time record, a half ton of food for Gifts From The Heart and $200 in cash donations.
Editor, Coupeville Mayor Nancy Conard and the Island County commissioners know there is a growing realization that the county and Navy have a problem — what to do about the jet noise disclosure statement. The current statement is obviously written to provide homebuyers with the least possible information so they aren’t discouraged from buying.
