Thank you to everyone who attended Seniors Have Talent on Nov. 7. We had a full house!
Just wanted to say that I thought your editorial about the teacher and student was right on (“When a teacher crosses the line,” 11/4/15). You outlined the issues very clearly and mentioned other opinions that are irrelevant. Nicely done.
In the November 5 issue of Islands’ Sounder, two editorials regarding sexual misconduct by a high school teacher were printed. The one article, credited to three high school seniors of The Viking Voice, was tempered with compassion and respect for all those involved in the situation. It calls for restraint from judgement and blame, as well as calls for the use of right speech in discussing the situation in our community.
I was deeply saddened to hear about the passing of Roger Congdon. I first met Roger about 25 years ago, when I joined the American Legion Post #93.

I read with interest last week’s Sounder Editorial, “Road safety.” Although the well-intentioned message offered some sage advice (e.g., turn signals provide useful information), it hinted that cyclists may not belong on our roads, pejoratively labeling “bicycle riders weaving into traffic” as a “unique danger” akin to our local roadside nibbler, the deer.
A poem dedicated to the wonderful Orcas Island community.
