Letters to the Editor – February


The Editor and Dave Armstrong:

Sorry to hear about your missing cat. I have a fabulous cat too; I would hate to have him go missing.

But why do you have a collar with a bell on her? That’s like a lunch bell for coyotes! I would never put a collar nor a bell on my cat. He has an identification tattoo in his ear if he gets lost and found, which is all they need.

Byron Moore



The Editor:

On behalf of all animals in Point Roberts please be aware the maximum speed is 30 mph. Some roads are 25 mph. Please slow down to 15 mph when you see horses on our roads, passing slowly far and wide. This request is for the safety of everyone and would be greatly appreciated.

Darlene Gibbs and the

horse owners of Point Roberts

The Editor:

I love being an American and the Whidbey Telecom grant is amazing; Point Roberts needs it. I am just so saddened that the photograph was of a group of socially irresponsible adults with no masks.

The Editor:

Martin Luther King Jr. famously said, “The time is always right, to do what is right.”

On this, nearly all of us agree. Where we tend to drift apart, is what we think is “right.” It should be no surprise, that what most concerns the League of Women Voters (LWV), is the right to vote, as that is the cornerstone of our democracy.

In the U.S., over the past 233 years, we have seen more access to voting for more of our citizens. But it has been a tough road with many potholes.

The members of the LWV recognize that the source of our power, compassion, conviction, brilliance and resilience, as a country, lies not only in our representative democracy but in the diversity of our citizens. As we begin a new year, it is essential that we guarantee the right and access to vote to all through the Freedom to Vote Act (S.2747), and restore and strengthen the bipartisan Voting Rights Act of 1965 by passing the John Lewis Voting Rights Advancement Act (VRAA).

King said, “No one is free until we are all free.” LWV has been fighting for the right to vote for over 100 years and voting is the foundation of a strong democracy where all can enjoy the richness of an engaged, diverse society. I urge you to raise your voice and be a voter.

Joy Monjure, branch president, League

of Women Voters
