New Letters

To the editor,

Go see San Juan Island Community Theatre's production "Into the Woods". Or go see it a second time. You will be surprised and challenged to think about the Grimm's fairy tales in a new way. The music is challenging, the words provoking and the singing enjoyable.

If you have children under 10, you might want to take them to see just the first (happier) half and leave at intermission.

Young ones will recognize many of the characters: Jack & the Beanstalk, Little Red Riding Hood, Cinderella, Rapunzel & of course there is an evil witch. What a great opportunity to introduce them to theatre by starting with familiar tales.

As an adult, you will be amazed how the stories are cleverly woven together. Questions about honesty, integrity and how we should treat giants are all discussed. Plus, you will now have the catchy tunes "It Takes Two" or the phrase "The cow as white as milk, the cape as red as blood, the hair as yellow as corn, the shoe as pure as gold" spinning around in your head.

What is that all about? Come see!

Susan Mahoney

Our first-half County property tax payment is due. Huh? I try not to…

Unhappy with article about CSA's role on Planning Commission Friday, 18 April 2014 Concerning your editorial about Common Sense Alliance board members on the Planning Commission, a balanced approach to the issue would also tell readers how many members of and/or contributors to the Friends of the San Juans, which is every bit as active in advocating for and against planning issues as the CSA, are members of the Planning Commission.
