Strong objection to Sounder’s coverage | Letters

  • Jul 26, 2016 at 12:00AM updated at 3:03PM

I've considered your offer to write a piece about my thoughts/objections to the article you wrote about the case against Sarah Coffelt. I've decided that the Coffelts have had more than enough unpleasant and unnecessary exposure, and do not want to call any more attention to them.

Thanks for important news coverage | Letter

  • Today at 1:34AM

Thank you for being a "news"paper. Serious news should be printed in the proper place, including the front page. The paper should be primarily for adults, not children. There is a real problem in this country over "trigger" words being used in our schools. We seem to forget the purpose of schools is to prepare people for the realities of life not coddle them. This applies to our media as well.

Have we been led down the garden path? | Letter

  • Sep 27, 2016 at 1:46PM

Editor's note: According to County Council Member Rick Hughes, the community garden was inactive for a period of time and grass had overgrown the space. Public works cut the grass down, planted new seed, took the deer fence down and reverted the area back to public access. Hughes said the area cannot be a parking lot, but he hopes a decision on the property's future will be decided in the next six months. The area can be a bypass, a walking pass, a road or a park and ride because the land was purchased by the public works department with road funding.

Appreciate these stories | Letter

  • Sep 27, 2016 at 1:10PM

I wanted you to know that I appreciate these stories about what's going on in our community and I think it's important for people to know that just like anywhere else, we have crime here. Our islands are not the idyllic utopia that new people often believe it is.

United Way supports early education | Letter

  • Sep 23, 2016 at 1:30AM

I want to let our community know how thankful we are to the United Way of San Juan County, which helps Children's House keep tuition costs affordable and early education accessible for families that might not otherwise be able to afford it.
