“My wife and I are currently traveling to try to find a place to move due to jet noise at OLF. I must admit it is hard to find a nicer place to live than Whidbey, but the navy has left us with no choice. When we talk to people in our travels and mention why we are looking for a new home, to a person they express disbelief that the navy is allowed to conduct operations over people’s homes. We have also seen endless tracts of badlands that the navy could practice in and affect no one. What is wrong with our politicians and all the pro navy people that they deny the obvious? As usual it’s all about money. Maybe they should pay for moving costs!”

    I agree about plenty of wide open space close by in eastern washington,south whidbey island would be great for you 2, no jet nios and still be on the island

    I’ve asked about moving the bouncing to Skagit Regional – closer to home for me and the bus route not held hostage by the state legislature & fiscal mismanagement….

    Would require:

    *Congressional support
    *2nd EIS
    *Purchase of aviation easements & eminent domain as COMPENSATION
    *Settling litigation
    *New construction of barriers and lighting and possibly more – requiring congressional approval

    Take around 8-10 years and SEVERAL BILLION DOLLARS.

    Then you wonder why I propose eminent domain for Central Whidbey? ALL Americans who DEPEND on OLF can COMPENSATE folks who need to MOVE from OLF. Tell me where I’m wrong here….

    DO IT so EVERYBODY can see.
