Letters to the editor: August 11-19

The Editor:

On August 1, my husband and I were having dinner on the patio of the Great Blue Heron celebrating our 52nd wedding anniversary. It was a beautiful Northwest summer evening and very relaxing and enjoyable. When the waitress brought our bill, she said that it had been taken care of by the only other couple on the patio. They had quietly walked away and we were unable to thank them, so we would just like to say thank you for your random act of kindness and we look forward to paying it forward.

As the political season is now upon us we are now seeing a lot of letters about candidates and issues.

I have many friends in our community and am sure my views are different from many of them. I do not wish for them to think less of me or my views to effect or friendship or business relationships, therefore I am not going to write a letter of opinion on anything showing my political views. I would however like to show you some things I have noted that will help you to write a perfectly effective political letter.

Much of what I am about to share I have learned from previous The Northern Light letter to the editor issues. Here it goes I am going to leave the blanks for you to fill in. The whole ______________ community was applauded by the ______________ and their mean spirited hater agenda. It is an indisputable truth that ________________. The only one who supports______________ is the low information voter. If you gave your vote to_____________ it would be awesome.

In many past presidential elections there were physician’s reports about the general physical health of candidates, giving us confidence they could effectively begin and hopefully fulfill their term. I believe there is now a critical need for a report on psychological fitness.

We’d like to thank all the sponsors, the folks who donated to the silent auction, all the fantastic volunteers who helped run the event, the golfers who played in the tourney and our great Blaine community for their support of the Brad “Brose” Ambrose/Ryder Cup Memorial Golf Tournament held on July 30, at the Dakota Creek Golf Course. The 2nd annual event raised money for the both late Brad Ambrose’s 3-year-old son Ryder and two $500 annual Brad “Brose” Ambrose scholarships for Blaine graduating seniors.

I was walking on the marina boardwalk this Sunday, minding my own business thank you, when two seagulls decided to do multiple sorties trying to crap on and otherwise intimidate me. I had to growl like a bear to scare them off.

This is not acceptable. On the whole, I am OK with Blaine’s open birds policy, but seagulls need to be the exception. They’re exceedingly loud and aggressive, they crap on everything, they litter our streets with shell debris. Unlike some of the other great birds that sail over the Blaine skyline, seagulls are in no way endangered or threatened.

It is long past time for the city to do something about this in the form of a gull cull. Either do something to get rid of many of these noisy nuisances or let the good residents of Blaine do it. Tell us what are the acceptable ways of getting rid of these winged varmints and we’ll take it from there.
