No death penalty for grandfather killer By JESSIE STENSLAND Staff reporter
Island County Prosecutor Greg Banks has decided he will not seek the death penalty against a 31-yearold homeless man accused of murdering both of his grandfathers at their North Whidbey homes last October. Joshua Lambert is accused of stabbing to death his two 80-year-
old grandfathers, George Lambert and August Eisner, on Oct. 3. Lambert, who is acting as his own attorney, pleaded not guilty by reason of insanity and told the Whidbey News-Times that he was in the midst of a hallucination when he committed the crimes. “As horrific and devastating as his alleged crimes are, I have decided not to seek the death pen-
alty against Joshua David Lambert,” Banks wrote in a statement. “My decision is consistent with the wishes of most of the victims’ surviving family members. It is consistent with the record of capital murder cases in Washington. And it is supported by the evidence known to me, and the law that governs its use at trial.” Banks has spent months investi-
gating whether to pursue the death penalty and announced his decision this week. He met with family members of both victims multiple times and discussed the case with some of the state’s most experienced death penalty prosecutors.

Police car at fault in Oak Harbor
Oak Harbor council picks new member in 4-2 vote
By JUSTIN BURNETT Staff reporter
A chase gone bad has resulted in two claims filed against Oak Harbor and an internal review of the incident by the city’s police department. James McFaul of Hattiesburg, Miss., and his son, David McFaul of Oak Harbor, both submitted claims for financial damages on Feb. 14, two days after the vehicle they were in was broadsided by a patrol car. Police Chief Rick Wallace confirmed that the collision did occur and said it was a significant accident. It was investigated by the Washington State Patrol and the agency has concluded that the officer was at fault, he said. The Oak Harbor Police Department’s internal Accident Review Board, which is being led by Lt. John Dyer, is also doing an investigation; it’s standard procedure anytime an accident involves an officer. It will examine a range of issues, from fault and possible disciplinary action to department policies and whether additional training for officers is needed. See police, A2

Open house shows off school facilities By REBECCA OLSON Staff reporter
Not only do the new maintenance, information services and warehouse departments of the Oak Harbor School District provide much more space for more efficient work, but the remodeling didn’t cost taxpayers an extra cent. Tour the new facilities, located behind Oak Harbor High School, Wednesday, Feb. 29 from 3:30 to 5:30 p.m. For years, maintenance and information services have been housed on Midway Boulevard in the bottom floor of the original Oak Harbor High School, which was built in 1911.

Maintenance serves approximately 240,000 square feet of buildings in the district. Carpentry, plumbing, electrical, painting, heating, air circulation, information services and more were stuffed into the small building on Midway and efficiency was challenging with the lack of space for equipment and supplies.

Joel Servatius has been selected as Oak Harbor’s newest city councilman. Servatius was appointed in a 4-2 vote at City Hall Tuesday to fill Position 5, the seat occupied by Scott Dudley before he was elected mayor. Dudley had served two years of a four-year term. “I’m excited and looking forward to the challenge,” Servatius said, following his appointment. The owner and branch manager of Transamerica Financial Advisors Inc. in Oak Harbor, Servatius holds a bachelor’s degree in business administration from the University of Puget Sound and has been a member of the Oak Harbor Chamber of Commerce board since 2001.

The 40-year-old father of three is also the current president and a coach of the Whidbey Wildcat Wrestling Club and a volunteer at the Oak Harbor Elementary School, according to his resume. The process to fill Position 5 began in early January and Servatius was appointed from a pool of 10 candidates. He was among the four finalists who were selected earlier this month and then publicly interviewed Tuesday evening. The other finalists included Richard Devlin, James Reynolds and Jeff Wallin. The men were asked a series of questions, which ranged from their views on budget reserves to their long-range election plans. Of the four, Servatius and Wallin emerged as the council’s top two picks. The strengths of both candidates were dis-
The collision occurred on Feb. 12 at about 8:30 p.m. According to Wallace, an officer attempted to pull over a vehicle earlier in the evening for a traffic infraction, but it took off and the pursuit was terminated. The same vehicle was spotted on Heller Street a short time later by Officer Steve Nordstrand, a former department drug abuse resistance education, or DARE, officer. Norstrand began a pursuit and was going through the intersection at Whidbey Avenue when his car collided with the McFauls’ vehicle. The McFauls, traveling in a 2007 Buick Terraza van, were eastbound on Whidbey Avenue and proceeding through the intersection on a green light

Servatius’ financial background, leadership skills and community involvement were praised, as was Wallin’s expertise in the construction business, long volunteer history and community roots. The council members repeatedly remarked that both candidates were well qualified for the position. Councilman Bob Severns said it was one of the hardest decisions he’s had to make as an elected official and Councilwoman Beth Munns was so undecided that she was the last to make up her mind and became the deciding vote. “It’s tough,” Munns said. “This is really a tough decision.”
In the end, Servatius earned the support of Munns, Severns, and council members Danny Paggao and Jim Campbell while Wallin received votes from council members Rick Almberg and Tara Hizon. Servatius was immediately sworn in by city Clerk Connie Wheeler and took his seat at the council bench for the remainder of the meeting. In a later interview, Servatius said he applied for the position because he and his family are in Oak Harbor for the long term. He said he is eager to begin serving the community as its newest councilman. “I’m looking forward to getting my feet wet,” Servatius said.

when they were struck, according to their claims for damages. The force of the collision resulted in the patrol car hitting a third vehicle, a 1999 Ford Windstar van driven by Oak Harbor resident Frank Campos. Following the accident, both of the McFauls went to Whidbey General Hospital. According to their claims, each received medical attention but neither was seriously injured in the crash. James said this week that he was sore but recovering. He complimented both the city and its insurance company, the Washington Cities Insurance Authority, for their cooperation. “They’ve been super,” James said. Neither of the McFauls’ claims listed specific monetary amounts; James is asking to be reimbursed for personal injur y expenses and hotel and airline costs related to
the accident, and David is seeking compensation for property damage and medical injury expenses. According to Wallace, officer-related crashes are rare with between one and four occurring annually. The vast majority are minor fender benders and many are the fault of other drivers. “I’m very proud of the low number of officer-atfault accidents that occur,” he said. He added that Nordstrand is a veteran officer and that this is the first collision he knows of that Nordstrand has been involved in. As for the car that was being pursued, Wallace said it was found unoccupied the next day. Police are investigating whether the registered owner was driving at the time of the incident. If the owner was, he or she could face felony charges of evading police.

Bail set at $150,000 for alleged throat slasher from Oak Harbor By JESSIE STENSLAND Staff reporter
A 26-year-old Oak Harbor man accused of slashing another man’s throat with a broken beer bottle at a nightclub made a preliminary appearance in Island County Superior Court Thursday. Judge Vickie Churchill found probable cause to hold Shaunyae Allen on suspicion of first-degree assault and set his bail at $150,000. She emphasized that Allen, who’s also known as “Shytown” or “Chi-town,” had been banned from going into any liquor establishments since he’s on probation. Chief Criminal Prosecutor Eric Ohme said Allen had been released from prison Dec. 27 after serving time for second-degree assault and possession of a stolen firearm. He said that Allen could face from 10 to 13 years in prison on the new charge under the standard sentence range if convicted. Allen’s attorney, Peter Simpson of Coupeville, unsuccessfully requested a much lower bail, pointing out that even the police report suggests his client may not have started the fight. “It’s unclear at this point who might have been the primary aggressor,” he said. “There seems to be some confusion about that.” Detective Tony Slowik with the Oak Harbor Police Department investigated the assault that occurred at Club Element at about 1 a.m. on Feb. 18. A witness told investigators that the fight started between Allen and another 26-year-old man after the man hugged a woman, which apparently upset Allen. The witness said Allen grabbed the front of the other man’s shirt and the man pushed him back. The woman claimed the men started wrestling and fell to the floor; Allen was holding a bottle of Corona beer, broke the bottle on the floor and slashed the other man’s face, according to Slowik’s report. The surveillance video from the club appears to show that the alleged victim first pushed Allen and Allen responded

Oak Harbor resident Shaunyae Allen appeared in court Thursday. He’s accused of assaulting a man with a beer bottle at an Oak Harbor nightclub. by pulling him forward, causing him to fall to the floor. The video appears to show Allen punching the victim while he’s down, according to the police report. The bouncers separated the two men and escorted Allen out of the club. A witness reported that blood “squirted and gushed onto the floor” from the victim, Slowik wrote. The man, who suffered several lacerations to the throat and chin, was transported to the hospital and immediately taken into surgery. He was moved to the intensive care unit afterward and placed on a ventilator for several days, the police report states. In an interview with detectives, the alleged victim admitted that he pushed Allen after he grabbed his shirt, but then Allen punched him. He said he didn’t even know he had been cut until he went into the bathroom. The man said the doctors told him that one of the lacerations was about 2 centimeters from piercing his carotid artery. He received 70 stitches. In an interview with the detective, Allen said the other man pushed him first, so he punched him one time in
the head. He denied punching the man while he was on the floor and said he didn’t remember if he was holding a beer bottle, the report states. Allen was the victim in a drive-by shooting that occurred more than a year ago, on New Year’s Eve, in Oak Harbor. The incident also started at the Element nightclub, where Allen got into an altercation with a group of women. Someone hit him over the head with a pink liquor bottle outside the club. One of the women in the fight called her relatives, who went after Allen. One of the men shot at his car twice on NW Cathlamet. After being shot at, Allen drove home to his apartment. He happened to see a woman, who he mistakenly thought was involved in the fight at the nightclub, standing outside a neighboring apartment building. He walked over, pointed a gun at her and uttered a threatening remark. He later pleaded guilty and was sentenced to a year and five months in prison, but was apparently released early for good behavior.
Island County commissioners will consider an ordinance Monday that increases dog license fees and the cost of getting a pooch out of doggy jail. Betty Kemp, manager of the general services department, said the increases are based on a survey of what other jurisdictions charge for dog tags and the redemption of lost dogs at animal shelters. She said the proposed charges would put the county’s fees in the middle of the pack. In addition, she said the increase would bring the county slightly closer to recovering the cost of providing animal control. The commissioners will hold a public hearing to consider the ordinance that increases the charges during their 2 p.m. meeting Feb. 27. If it is adopted, as expected, it will go into effect three days later. The fees for a dog license, springing an impounded dogs or surrendering an unwanted dog haven’t changed since 1999. The proposal would increase the cost of purchasing a required dog license from $7 to $10 for neutered or spayed canines and from $25 to $50 for intact pooches. For lost dogs that end up at the shelter, the cost of redemption would jump. The impound fee would increase for $25 to $50 and the daily boarding fee increases from $7 to $10. The impound fee would double to $100 for the second dog impoundment within a year and $200 for third and subsequent impoundments. In addition, Kemp said the
ordinance was simplified to take out late penalties and discounts for senior citizen dog owners, while some language was cleaned up. Kemp said she’s also been working with officials in other county departments in an effort to allow people to purchase dog licenses online, possibly at the county’s website. The hope is that more people will comply with the ordinance if it’s easier. Kemp previously estimated that there’s at least 10,000 dogs in unincorporated areas of the county. Since only a small percentage of dog owners purchase licenses, the county is missing out on thousands of dollars a year that could be used to offset the costs of keeping animals healthy and happy at the shelters. Currently, dog licenses can be purchased at the Whidbey Animals’ Improvement Foundation shelters in Oak Harbor or south of Coupeville, at the county treasurer’s office in Coupeville and of four different veterinarian offices on Whidbey. The dog owner has to show proof that his or her dog received a rabies vaccina-

As Banks explained, aggravating circumstances include the fact of multiple victims where the murders are part of a single plan, or the fact that murders were committed in the course of a robbery or burglary. “In the Lambert murder case, it is possible that a jury could find one or both murders were premeditated and that an aggravating circumstance exists,” Banks wrote.

his decision not to pursue death. One is the strictly practical consideration of whether he would be successful. Banks concluded it was highly unlikely that a jury would impose the death penalty because of Lambert’s mental state at the time of the murders, which can be considered a mitigating factor under state law. He said a News-Times story about a jailhouse interview with Lambert helped convince him that mental health issues could be considered a mitigating factor. “The evidence regarding Lambert’s history and his behavior on the day of the murders convinces me that one or more jurors would find that to be a mitigating circumstance,” Banks wrote. Statistics show that juries
in the state are very reluctant to impose the death penalty, and even when they do, the appeals process can reverse the sentence or delay it for decades. Juries in the state have sentenced murderers to death only 32 times out of nearly 300 aggravated murder cases since the death penalty statute was enacted in 1981. Of those 32 death sentences, 17 murderers had their sentences reversed by higher courts. Of the other 15, six have been executed, one committed suicide, and eight remain on death row. Banks also considered the wishes of the victims’ family members. “A prosecutor must have an exceptionally strong rationale to pursue a capital prosecution, where doing so goes against
the wishes of the victims’ families,” he wrote. “In my judgment, this case is not strong enough to go against the wishes of many family members.” The prosecutor charged Lambert last October with first-degree murder in the death of George Lambert and first-degree kidnapping for allegedly tying up his great aunt with packing tape. Banks put off charging Lambert with the second murder until after he received a report on Lambert’s mental health from Western State Hospital. He received the report this week. In an interview last week, Lambert said he was accused of assaulting three fellow patients while he was at the hospital. In one case, he said he was accused of stabbing a man in the ear and eye with a

Roberts said. The new facility has much more room for technicians.

Lambert is convicted of all the charges, the minimum time he will have to spend behind bars --- taking “good time” into account --- would be 71 years and eight months. Under state law, each murder conviction has a 20-year minimum during which time no early release or furlough can be granted and deadly-weapon enhancements are not eligible for good time credits. While he’s not pursuing the death penalty, Banks said his goal is to make sure Lambert is never free again. “The senseless brutality of the crimes has shocked and saddened our community,” he wrote. “It has inflicted incomprehensible pain on Joshua Lambert’s extended family --- the families of the two murdered men.”
can pull into the storage area and deliver items directly into the building, Roberts said. Another addition is the separate server room that also houses the district’s cable TV lines. The new facility has a room where staff can record educational videos about using computers and fixing problems, which will be available on their website, Roberts said. The new facility is a “quantum leap” from the old building, Roberts said. Another octagonal building next door is the new warehouse, which is vastly larger than the old one, Worley said. All school district materials and mail are delivered to the warehouse before distribution to the schools. “Now, we’ve got a place we can lay down food and actually walk around it to see what we got,” Worley said, adding that they can get around both sides of the shelves with a forklift now. There are garage doors for truck deliveries, making everything more efficient. “This is just unbelievable,” Worley said. There’s enough parking for staff, and vehicles are secure because the area is fenced off from the high school. A garage offers storage for man lifts and other machinery. The grounds department cares for approximately 180 acres of grass, gardens, ball-
fields, sidewalks and parking lots, said school district communications director Joe Hunt. Now, the department has a shop in the warehouse that, by itself, is half the size of the space everyone used to work in. The shop is dry, warm and equipment can be pulled in through garage doors so staff can work on it. The octagonal buildings, located behind the high school, were originally used as classrooms, but since they were oddly shaped, they rarely worked for teachers, Hunt said. When the new CareerTech building was finished three years ago, the octagonal buildings were used as pivot classrooms while remodeling the high school, but after that, they had no use. The cost of tearing down the buildings would have been huge. “That would have just been lost cash,” Worley said. After passing the $54-million bond to renovate the high school in 2006, Superintendent Rick Schulte chose to invest the cash until it was needed, which he had done with past bonds, too. The interest that money earned entirely funded this $5.4 million facilities remodeling project. “Now they’re converted into something highly efficient that’ll help maintain the rest of the buildings,” Hunt said. Remaining funding was used to build new dugouts, a warm-up area and more for the seniors baseball field and to build a soccer field and a softball field, located behind the new facilities. Currently, girls softball plays behind Hillcrest Elementary School. The new field will be put into use next year. “It’s going to be one of the premier softball fields in the state. Next spring, this is going to be the bees’ knees for girls softball,” Worley said.

On Monday, Banks said he will ask the court to allow him to amend the charges against Lambert to two counts of murder in the first degree, one count of kidnapping in the first degree, three counts of burglary in the first degree, one count of taking a motor vehicle and one county of unlawful possession of a firearm. The murder and kidnapping charges will be filed as domesticviolence related charges with special allegations and deadly weapon enhancements.

Oak Harbor School District discusses budget, levy By REBECCA OLSON Staff reporter
With one of the lowest local levies in the state, the Oak Harbor School District hopes the community will support an increase to the levy. The board wants to hear the public’s opinion as they begin budgeting for next school year in a series of Monday night meetings. In the first meeting Feb. 21, Superintendent Rick Schulte gave a current budget status report. The district’s revenue of $48.15 million is a little less than budgeted but higher than the expenditures, which fall at $48.10 million. For the 2012-2013 year, Schulte said the district has estimated that enrollment will remain at 5,300, as it has for the past three years. As they begin budgeting, however, uncertainty is everywhere. Gov. Chris Gregoire’s threat to cut Levy Equalization money is still a worry and rising fuel prices will affect transportation funding. Schulte said they know Federal Impact Aid funding will be down a few hundred thousand dollars this year because the district will be receiving the funds from three years ago, which were less than the district is paid now due to how the government allocated funds that year. “Everybody is used to dealing with the uncertainty and
it’s no fun,” said school board member Peter Hunt. The budget has to be completed before the district knows its enrollment and funding numbers for certain. However, as in the past, professionals like Schulte get the district through the process, Hunt said. The current levy, including Levy Equalization money, which is the state levy match, yielded $4.2 million in 2012. That funds approximately 20 teachers, 20 fulltime-equivalent classified staff and $2 million for materials, supplies and operations. The tax rate of 0.92 is one of the smallest in the state; the state average is $2.54. That means the average Washington state student receives nearly three times as much local funding as an Oak Harbor student. Oak Harbor is at 29.8 percent of the legal levy limit. The majority of school districts in the state are already at the legal limit. If Oak Harbor increased its levy to the highest legal limit, it would receive approximately $11.4 million. Over the past five years, the district has been making sizable cuts, including cutting 30 teachers, librarians and counselors, cutting 30 minutes from the middle school day, cutting maintenance, grounds and custodial staff and cutting back on athletics

Superintendent Rick Schulte explains the current budget to the Oak Harbor School Board and community members at the first budget meeting Feb. 21. by trimming assistant coaches and some tournaments. Staff took a 1.9 percent wage and salary cut and furlough days. The after-school activity bus that allowed after-school tutoring was cut, along with midday busing for everyday kindergarten. The district hasn’t purchased new textbooks for three years. “We’re making the same cuts that other people are but we started at a lower level,” Schulte said, adding that some of the results of these

cuts will become more apparent over time, like the elimination of preventative maintenance and grounds staff. However, the district has been successful in many ways. Massively remodeling the high school and building the stadium raised school and community spirit, students win national competitions in computer-aided drafting, culinary, marketing and more, the high school offers a wide variety of classes and the levy funds elementary
art and physical education, which not every community offers, Schulte said. “In some respects, we’re doing a lot better than we should be doing with the resources we have available,” Schulte said. However, increasing the levy to just below the state average would fund so much more at the schools, Schulte said. Schulte laid out what the district could have if its funding was equal to that of neighboring districts. For example, $700,000 per year would buy new textbooks and keep them updated and an additional $500,000 per year would keep technology updated. Special education could use $500,000 to re-hire staff and instructional assistants cut after federal stimulus money ran out, and to buy new technology. To restore two grounds staff, two maintenance staff and four custodians, as well as replace equipment and vehicles that haven’t been replaced in years, Schulte would allocate $700,000 to maintenance and grounds. Schulte said capital projects could use $500,000 and athletics and activities, which are solely funded by the levy and Impact Aid, could use $700,000. To buy back everyday kindergarten and the activity bus and to deal with rising fuel costs, $500,000
needs to be allocated to transportation. In order to save middle school assistant principals and high school dean positions, administration needs $400,000. To restore the 1.9 percent pay cut and hours cut for classified staff, $700,000 is needed. For the middle schools, $800,000 would restore the 30 minutes cut from the day and hire 10 out of 30 teachers who were cut. This would add up to $6 million. With the addition of Levy Equalization and the current levy, the district would receive $11 million, “a little bit less than average,” Schulte said. “I’m not saying we’re going to do everything on this,” Schulte said. “At this point, we have to cross things off.” At future meetings, the board will address the issue of: “What are our kids going to do without if we don’t do these things?” Schulte said. The school board asks the community to provide their input at these meetings, which will be Mondays, March 5, March 19, April 16 and April 23 at 6 p.m. in the district office, located at 350 S. Oak Harbor St. “The more input we have, the better it will be,” Schulte said. For information call 2795000.

IN OUR OPINION
Quit fiddling with the clock The days start getting longer in late December, but it usually takes weeks before we suddenly notice the difference. This week on Whidbey has been like that. Wednesday was dead-winter dark because of the thick gray clouds, rain and wind, but the sun returned Thursday and it seemed surprisingly early. It rose at 7:02 a.m. and set at 5:44 p.m., giving us 10 hours and 42 minutes of daylight. Those of us who arrived early to work and have an eastern exposure had to draw the shades to keep the sunlight off our eyeglasses and computer screens. By 7:58 the clouds had returned, but the weather forecasters were predicting a nice day, lasting until Friday when the rain was supposed to return. This gentle and surprising transition from winter to spring gives us approximately two extra minutes of sunlight each morning and two extra minutes of sunlight each afternoon. It’s a calm, relaxing, natural cycle, one the mind and body can adjust to in nature’s time. And then, daylight savings time comes along and ruins it all. Daylight savings time this year occurs at 2 a.m. Sunday, March 11, like a punch in the gut to the gentle rhythm of the seasons. One day the sun is rising at 6:35 a.m., the next day it rises at 7:03 p.m. This is an abomination. Nature was taking care of the time change in its own sweet way, and then Congress steps in to make a mess of it. There is something called standard time, which is what happens when daylight savings time is not in effect. The study of time is dizzying so we won’t get into how standard time evolved. Suffice it to say that after the clock was invented the world had time, and it was standard. But Congress will fiddle with anything once it exists, from the clock to the Internet. So it couldn’t help but fiddle with the clock. Congress now dictates the time the sun will rise and the time the sun will set. It’s hubris, and it’s annoying to people who enjoy the natural cycle of things and hate to reset the digits on the refrigerator clock, microwave clock, car clocks and wrist watches twice a year. It’s driving us cuckoo, which reminds us there’s another clock whose hands must be moved forward one hour or we’ll wake up to find we missed Sunday Morning with Charles Osgood. Congress should leave the clock alone. Who knows, it might discover that leaving things alone is generally the best course and many of its new laws and regulation are just a waste of time.

Letters to the editor Will help fund a recall The new mayor seems to have the attitude he can do anything he desires without the slightest regard for what his constituents want. My thoughts are how did this egotistical, arrogant upstart get elected? I see the mayor is now advertising for a new fire chief at a salary of $90,000 to $100,000 per year. I cannot help but wonder if this isn’t a smokescreen to comply with the law by naming a buddy? Unless there are criminal or moral issues involved, good management does not fire highly rated employees unless they already have a better replacement lined up. Apparently, this is not the case.
The cost the new mayor has laid on the Oak Harbor taxpayers is staggering. How much are the severance packages? If Fire Chief Mark Soptich takes an early retirement, it will cost taxpayers thousands of dollars more; i.e., paying two employees instead of one. Now we will have a new fire chief and who knows how competent that person will be? How will the employees react to the new chief? One thing for sure, they reacted well to Mr. Soptich’s leadership! I do not know the others who the mayor axed, but I have been told they were all excellent employees. However, as the mayor said, he does not answer to anyone. In closing, please advise me if there is a recall about

Going back to two-way
So I’ve been through our “new and improved” downtown a few times and a number of things have become painfully obvious. Backing into traffic when parked next to anything other than a convertible with its top down is not fun and I see the potential for accidents as a deterrent for some folks. I notice that there is no longer a traffic flow through town and have seen backups and confusion around the lights at Artie’s and at the bottom of Midway at Pioneer. I think that these things are going to become issues in the near future and there will
be growing demand to return to the two-way format. Sadly (perhaps due to metropolitan narcissism and having a used car salesman for a mayor), it will cost us another large fortune to re-convert it. I wonder why the initial design did not take into consideration the possibility that it might not work and make it possible to easily revert back to the logical two-way format? Given the depth of the controversy, it seems that this would have been the most prudent course of action. I give it two years max before the construction equipment is back at work and we start throwing more scarce money and resources at the area. It sure is pretty, though, ain’t it?

Letters to the editor Stop spectators at animal fights
Would there be animal fights if there weren’t any spectators? It’s the spectators who fuel dogfights and cockfights with their admission fees and gambling wagers. Currently, there is no federal penalty for attending an animal fight. Let’s change that now! The Animal Fighting Spectator Prohibition Act (S. 1947/H.R. 2492) has been introduced to prohibit knowing attendance at an organized animal fight and to impose additional penalties for exposing a child to this violence and blood-letting. Please make a brief, polite phone call to Sen. Maria Cantwell 202-224-3441 and Sen. Patty Murray 202-2242621, and Rep. Rick Larsen, 202- 225-2605, urging co-sponsorship of S. 1947/H.R. 2492. Don’t forget to send a followup message. Barbara Moran Whidbey Animal Guild (WAG)
Community comes through for food
The Interfaith Coalition of Whidbey Island would like to thank the community of North Whidbey for their generous donation of food and money during our Feed the Need food drive held Saturday, Jan. 21. With the support of our community, the ICOWI collected 6,000 pounds of canned food and $1,000.15 for the Help House of North Whidbey. Special thanks goes out to all the volunteers who col-
lected food items at our local grocery stores from shoppers and delivered them to our collection van. It is a blessing to know we live in a community concerned with helping others in this time of economic need. Peace and blessings to all. Hap Fakkema, president Interfaith Coalition of Whidbey Island
Decision needs to be repealed The U.S. Supreme Court now has a chance to fix the enormous mistake it made in the Citizens United decision two years ago. A Montana case challenging that decision has just been appealed back to the court (American Tradition Partnership v. Bullock). The Citizens United case said that corporations, as “people,” have a “free speech” right to spend unlimited sums of money to influence our elections. Corporations, however, are not “people” recognized by the U.S. Constitution, and the “right to free speech” should never have been extended to them. Since money clearly determines the outcome in the vast majority of our elections, corporations, with their almost limitless supply of money, can always outspend “real” people and thereby literally and unfairly “buy” elections. Unless the damage wrought by Citizens United is undone, democracy, as we have known it, is finished. Polls show that 80 percent of Americans want the Citizens United decision overturned. Hence, if the Supreme Court really wants to do the right thing, it can reflect the will of the people and use this opportunity to correct the political mess it has created. Marshall F. Goldberg Oak Harbor
You too can earn a Green Seal Sound Waters is first! This month’s Sound Waters was our first Whidbey Green Seal certified event. If you haven’t yet heard, the Whidbey Green Seal was launched last July and so far 40 organizations have been certified. Churches, nonprofits, businesses, schools and government offices may apply online at www. sustainablewhidbey.org/projects/greenseal. Applications include a checklist that will steer organizations toward reducing waste, saving energy, conserving water, reducing toxins and supporting the island community. Your organization can check off whatever applies and see if it scores high enough for certification. But wait! There’s more! The 17th Annual Sound Waters Conference coordinated by the WSU Beach Watchers of Island County became the first to qualify as a Whidbey Green Seal event, which is a new category. Sound Waters crew planned carefully to reduce waste. After hosting 530 people in a day-long conference with over 60 classes, lunch and snacks, they generated only nine pounds of garbage. The rest was recycled or composted. A parking area close to the entrance was designated for carpools. And those traveling by bus got prizes. These and other efforts made Sound Waters the perfect event to spotlight this new aspect of the Whidbey Green Seal.

‘Record’ loses one editor while another returns NEWS-TIMES STAFF It’s back to the future as the former editor of the South Whidbey Record returns and the current editor leaves the island for a new opportunity. Brian Kelly, editor of the South Whidbey Record for the past seven years, is leaving at the end of next week to take another position with Sound Publishing. Kelly has been named editor of the Bainbridge Island Review, a weekly newspaper with a long history in a competitive market. “This is a great opportunity for Brian and we are happy to keep him in the Sound Publishing family,” said Marcia Van Dyke, publisher of The South Whidbey Record and Whidbey News-Times. A familiar face to many South Whidbey residents will replace Kelly. Jim Larsen, who for the past two years has held the title of supervising editor of both The Whidbey News-Times and South Whidbey Record, will take over as editor of the South Whidbey Record, a job he held for 20 years before moving to the North Whidbey paper in 2001. “We’re thrilled to have Jim Larsen back on South Whidbey where he knows the people, the territory and the issues,” Van Dyke said.
Larsen said he will take a more hands-on approach with his new job title at The Record, while he remains editor of the Whidbey News-Times as well. Both papers now share a building in Coupeville, and Larsen said the talented and experienced news staff will make the transition easier. South Whidbey Record readers will see a new byline in the paper. Justin Burnett will cover Langley city government, which is where Kelly spent much of his time as a reporter. For the past two years, Burnett has been covering Oak Harbor city government, and prior to that he covered Coupeville for another paper. “Justin has won many awards for his thorough reporting of city government,” Larsen said. “He’ll have no trouble picking up where Brian left off in Langley.” Burnett’s other beat will be Island County government, where he will be covering stories for both the Record and News-Times. Stories of general interest will run in both papers, while stories of particular interest to South Whidbey will run in The Record. Record readers will also be seeing more stories written by veteran reporter and assistant editor Jessie Stensland, who will cover crime and court stories for both papers.
Meanwhile, she will take over for Burnett in covering Oak Harbor, a beat she has covered in the past. Remaining with the Record are Patricia Duff, Island Life editor who covers the important arts and entertainment beat on South Whidbey while also writing features and other stories. Ben Watanabe will still be reporting sports, school district news and other assignments. “With Ben and Patricia helping, we expect a smooth transition as Brian leaves,” Larsen said. Kelly’s first day as editor of Bainbridge Island Review is March 5. He has been editor of the South End newspaper for nearly seven years. During the last four years of his tenure, the Record won more than 75 state and national journalism awards, including “General Excellence” honors from the Washington Newspaper Publishers Association in 2011. The publication also earned recognition as a “Newspaper of the Year” for being one of the top newspapers for its size in the United States and Canada in 2008. “It’s been an honor to work with such a talented team,” Kelly said. “Everyone --- the writers, artists, the folks in the front office, advertising, the carriers --- they’ve been top-notch.”
Equal under the law, but conscience may differ Responding to Al Williams’ “Soundoff” on Feb. 18: “Gay marriage” is not about gay marriage. It’s about marriage. Percentages are irrelevant. Marriage is about people, not statistics. The issue is about ethics and equality of law not justification by behavior found in the “animal world.” Most people groups speak of a fall from grace, a paradise lost, and a curse upon both man and nature. Neither is now truly “natural.” Also, divine and human laws have often been modified and ultimate demands satisfied. Additionally, one day the laws of nature and the laws of nature’s God will also be changed. Jefferson, appealing to the laws of nature and of nature’s God, established the rights of nations
yet derived the unalienable rights of men directly from the creator, to whom even the laws of nature and the laws of nature’s God are subject. You state: “It isn’t a choice … it’s determined by genetic specificity … environmental experiences.” An emerging epigenetic energetic paradigm suggest otherwise. People who gain moral validation from a form of genetic determinism do well to reconsider. Biology is not what we thought (Drs. Jablonka and Lamb, Dawson Church, Ph.D, Lars Olov Bygren, Ph.D. and Bruce Lipton, MD). Good news to a family with Parkinson’s but not to a person who bases homosexuality on “I was born this way.” If I can genetically
determine a baby is gay then I can “cure” the world of homosexuals or abort homosexual babies as with Down syndrome babies or Chinese females. Thus, rights are properly rooted in the unchanging creator alone. Paul, Jesus and Christians: People follow Jesus by independent choice. Historical orthodoxy exposes error, plumbs truth and challenges “new” theology. Paul met Jesus personally on the Damascus Road and his authority came from what he did. The character of God was manifest through Paul with signs and the wonders authenticating the message. Even first century sorcerers knew the apostles were dealing with a power they had never seen before. Paul’s was less stringent than Jesus, to whom calling a
brother a fool was hell worthy. We are all sinners. Christendom addresses sin as Jesus did with the adulteress. Redemptive grace, compassion, love are found in Christ and the Church. To call something sin is not rejecting the sinner. Scripture calls out sin, yet sinners are loved only if access to grace is left open and conscience freely exercised. We must treat sinners gracefully. The homosexual community has done this toward the heterosexual culture despite our poor treatment of its members. Under the law, people should be treated equally, under God, as conscience dictates. A civil union or marriage by a state agent or agency is equal treatment under the law. The right of clergy to refuse to marry is an exercise of their own
equal treatment under law and conscience. The state protects both access and conscience. Muslim mullahs may decline marrying Jews and Christian ministers homosexuals. Rites and sacraments belong to the specific community. Those seeking recognition via the sacraments of another group cannot do so on the basis of their terms but by the terms of the group being approached. This protects conscience. The state, garnering existence from the consent of the governed, does this in reverse because it reflects those it has gained consent from. This protects access. E Pluribus Unum.

Woman charged with felony harassment By JESSIE STENSLAND Staff reporter
A 35-year-old Oak Harbor woman is accused of going to a pregnant woman’s home with armed henchmen, demanding drugs and threatening the victim, court documents allege. Prosecutor charged the suspect, Sheila Deitz, in Island County Superior Court Feb 5 with felony harassment. A Rolling Hills resident reported that she and her boyfriend answered a knock on the door at about 1 a.m. on Dec. 8, 2011. They were met by a woman, later identified as Deitz, and two armed and masked men, according to a report by Sgt.
Mike Beech with the Island County Sheriff’s Office. One of the men was wearing an orange ski mask and the other had a red bandana across his face; one man was armed with an assault rifle and the other was carrying a shotgun, Beech’s report states. The woman announced that she was “Sam Theirstein’s mom, Sheila” and she wanted them to give her son’s marijuana back,” the report states. The woman who lives at the home told them she was pregnant and didn’t know what they were talking about. As a result, Deitz and the two men walked away; one of the men apologized and said it was a misunderstanding.
One of the suspects, however, threatened to return and harm everyone in the house if the police were called, the police report states. The next day, Deitz called the woman and threatened to kill her if she didn’t turn over the drugs, the report states. Beech identified Deitz from her phone number. In an interview with the deputy, Deitz explained that her son, Theirstein, was supposed to sell marijuana for her, but he claimed he was robbed by the pregnant woman and her boyfriend. Deitz initially believed her son’s story and went to the Rolling Hills home to retrieve the drugs. She took along two men as backup, but she claimed she didn’t

know they were armed, Beech wrote in his report. Deitz said she realized her son’s story was farfetched while talking to the alleged victims and left with the men, though she allegedly called and threatened the woman the next day, the report indicates. Beech spoke with Theirstein, who claimed the alleged victims in the case had robbed him of two ounces of pot, his wallet and a cellphone. Beech, however, speculated that Theirstein stole the marijuana from his mother and made up the story about being robbed to cover himself, the report states.

Whidbey alumni continue athletic careers in college By JIM WALLER Sports editor
Here’s an update on Coupeville and Oak Harbor high school graduates who have continued their athletic careers on the courts, tracks and pools of colleges around the United States this winter sports season. Oak Harbor brothers John and Price Hu helped the Stevens Institute of Technology (Hoboken, N.J.) win the Eastern Collegiate Athletic Conference swim title this winter. John Hu, a junior, won his third consecutive Swimmer of the Meet honors at the conference meet while winning three events. During his career he has earned four all-conference awards and set three school records. Price Hu, a freshman, finished second to his brother in the 200-yard butterfly at the conference meet and placed fifth in two other events. Coupeville’s Lily Doyle, a sophomore at Vassar, placed 22nd in the 200 backstroke at the Liberty League Championships and 19th in the 100 back at the Seven Sister Championships earlier this season. Oak Harbor’s Jessica Denmon, a sophomore at first-place Skagit Valley College (14-1, 19-6), is “having a great year,” according to women’s basketball coach Steve Epperson. Epperson added, “She has made a great contribution this year, and she is the best rebounding point guard
I have ever seen in my 35 years.” T h o u g h Denmon is only 5-feet, 6-inches tall, she is ninth in the league in rebounding with over eight per game. She also averages 12.6 points per game, leads the team in minutes played and assists (83) and is second in steals (46). Yakima Valley College men’s basketball coach Ray Funk said Coupeville’s Jason Bagby “has been a solid contributor to our program this year.” Funk added, “He has provided a toughness, energy and coachability that all teams need in its players. “He has im-proved his game and we are looking forward to what he will be Photo by Ryan Martin like next year Coupeville grad Hunter Hammer scores for with even more Everett Community College. improvement.” The 6-4 freshAnother college freshman man is averaging 4.5 points per game for the Yaks (9-4, from Coupeville, 6-6 Hunter 16-9), is third on the team Hammer, competes for in field goal percentage (48) Everett Community College and is fifth in rebounds (65) (2-13, 5-20) and is averaging 2.4 points a game and is sevand steals (23). enth on the team in rebounds

She was vibrant, full of life, and had a very contagious, happy spirit that infected everyone she came across.

It is a testament to her personal impact on friends and family that they have arrived from throughout the country and the world to bid her farewell. Vesing enjoyed fishing and crabbing with her family and playing mahjong and bingo with the girls. She was a very giving and helpful person. When catching numerous large salmon at Fort Casey she would share her catch with neighbors. Just one week prior to her passing, she won the jackpot at a local bingo and shared her winnings among friends and family. Sharing was typical of Vesing and she often helped friends going through life’s problems. She loved to cook and always made sure a guest in her home was well fed. When she made a batch of lumpia and adobo, her adult children clamored to stop by and take some home with them as they were regarded as the best kept secrets in town. Fun loving and entertaining,

Gray whale watching season begins By NATHAN WHALEN Staff reporter
Local tour groups are gearing up for the annual return of some popular visitors to Saratoga Passage. Gray whales are making their annual trip to the area in search of easy eats. They spend most of the spring feeding in the passage, which provides a chance for whale watchers to get a close look

at the marine mammals. Deception Pass Tours will offer gray whale tours out of the Oak Harbor Marina starting the first weekend in March. Co-owner Terica Taylor said that the speed of their boat, which reaches 40 mph, means a faster trip and thus allows more time for people to spot the whales. The first gray whale reported in 2012 has been roaming Puget Sound since January. Since then, it has been seen between the Langley and the Edmonds ferry dock, said Howard Garrett with the Orca Network, adding that there have been fleeting glimpses of the whales swimming in the South Puget Sound area. The gray whales generally visit Saratoga Passage starting in late February and early March and stay until late April and early May, Garrett said.

Howard Garrett of the Orca Network snapped a shot of a gray whale feeding near Greenbank Beach in Central Whidbey in May, 2010. Garrett said the whale feeds by rolling on its side to blast pits in the mud to free shrimp and invertebrates that it sucks in. The mudflats around Saratoga Passage provide a rich source of ghost shrimp, one of the whales’ favorite foods. The whales blast a jet of water into the mud and then they inhale the cloudy water, filter out the food and squirt out the remaining sediment, Garrett said. He said Langley, Fox Spit and Holmes Harbor on South

Whidbey Island during high tide provide the best opportunity to view the visiting whales. “They’ll work an area for hours at a time,” Garrett said. Gray whales have been seen in Crescent Harbor near the Seaplane Base and, two years ago, they were spotted in Admiralty Inlet near Whidbey Island Naval Air Station. The Orca Network records whale sitings and people seeing a gray whale should make a report by calling 866-ORCANET. The information collected about the
whales’ movement and location is given to researchers and also sent out on an email list of approximately 6,500 names. “It sort of refreshes our awareness that there are whales living and breathing right under our very noses,” Garrett said. Taylor said Deception Pass Tours will offer tours through Saratoga Passage starting March 3 and continuing through April. Taylor said 1,700 tickets have already been sold. To kickoff the tour season, the local tour company will sponsor a viewing of “The Big Miracle”
at the Oak Harbor Cinemas Friday evening, March 2. The first 100 people seeing the whale movie will get in for free. Then, on Saturday, March 3, people waiting to board can participate in a drawing to win free admission. The company is also offering discounted admission on March 3. The Victoria Clipper, up from Seattle, will be making two-hour stopovers in Coupeville on Saturdays and Sundays for the next two months. Those trips will provide a boost for local businesses.
ISLAND LIVING Whidbey
Saturday, February 25, 2012 • The Whidbey News-Times
Step back from life’s distractions FAITHFUL LIVING By Joan Bay Klope You have to decide what your highest priorities are and have the courage—pleasantly, smilingly, non-apologetically—to say “no” to other things. The way to do that is by having a bigger “yes” burning inside. --Stephen Covey On Wednesday evening of this week, I stepped inside my church, listened to quiet music, prayed and eventually walked to the front of the sanctuary. When my turn came, my pastor imposed ashes on my forehead in the shape of a cross. Symbolizing our origins from the dust and our eventual return to the dust, he reminded me that I join Christian believers across the globe to begin the Lenten season. Just as people worldwide respond in various ways to the yearly four seasons, Christians celebrate various seasons as well. This one is 40 days long, reminiscent of the 40 days Jesus spent praying and fasting in the wilderness to build the spiritual energies he would need for his ministry. To this end, Christians around the world are encouraged to step back from some of their normal distractions and focus on living their lives led by God’s spirit. Some people deny themselves favorite foods or activities; some focus on prayer and study the scriptures; some work toward church membership; some take on a project that seeks to improve the lives of others in need. Whatever the choice, the goal is to reestablish values and live with greater purpose. With all that can distract us, this can be a tall order. Temptations to change one’s goal for these 40 days is everywhere, just as it was for Jesus who weathered a series of temptations during his ministry. The first was a challenge to display for all to see his arsenal of spiritual power. In other words, show off what he was capable of doing to lay proof of his identity. The second challenge dared Christ to accept dangerous physical risks with the promise that in doing so he would be spared physical suffering. After all, wouldn’t God surely save his own son from pain? In the third challenge, Jesus was tempted with material rewards often associated with royalty; things that hold great worldly value, even today. Why live modestly when riches and power and popularity were within reach? Why not live as kings are destined to live? Scripture tells us that Jesus regularly stepped away from his ministry to pray, alone. He sought God’s courage and resolve, guidance and love with each step of his ministry. In so doing, his resolve to stay the course and remain committed to his purpose on earth never faltered. Each year, the season of Lent gifts us with time to clarify with God who we are to Him, identify what we are to accomplish with our lives and make the choice to challenge our physical and mental resolves. We do all this not because we have to, but because we know that in so doing we grow stronger and the world improves.
Student art fights human trafficking By REBECCA OLSON Staff reporter
Human trafficking is like putting a barcode on someone’s freedom and Oak Harbor High School student Ryan Delbrouck’s artwork shows just that. Delbrouck’s art, depicting a barcode in the shape of a person, won the human trafficking program art contest through Soroptimist International of Oak Harbor. The numbers on the barcode spell, “Help me.” Delbrouck was awarded a monetary prize at a recent Soroptimist meeting and Oak Harbor High School art teacher Kit Christopherson was awarded money for the art program. Delbrouck can expect to see his design on t-shirts that will read, “People are not for sale.” Human trafficking means illegally trading humans for use in sexual, labor and other exploitation. This is generally done via manipulation and threats. Seattle and Portland are at the top of the list of areas for human trafficking, said Stephanie Smith, past president and member of Soroptimist International of Oak Harbor. “There’s really the myth that it’s a situation that happens over there in other countries,” Smith said. The truth is that the people involved aren’t from other countries or even other cities; usually, they are from the same area that they are being trafficked in. Socioeconomic status has no effect; human traf-

Soroptimist fights against human trafficking by educating the public through the Northwest Coalition Against Trafficking and through local events like the high school art contest. “We thought it was important to involve high school students because high school and junior high are the most vulnerable,” Smith said. When Christopherson told the class about the project and about human trafficking, he said he received an immense

reaction from students to the contest, especially when they learned that human trafficking happens as close to home as Burlington. The common comment among students was that they’d seen the movie “Taken” and assumed human trafficking mainly happens in Europe. “The response was pretty overwhelming. Most students were passionate about designing a logo to help. It struck the students on a personal level,” Christopherson said. “It wasn’t just something you hear on the news. It’s something a fellow student could be involved in.” “I think generally when students are informed, they want to make a difference, they want to make an impact in their area and help,” Christopherson added, noting the work ethic and concentration of the students as they worked on the art project. “It meant a lot,” Delbrouck said of his design. While other students also used the barcode idea, he chose to use it as a simple silhouette. “I’ve never been personally affected but to hear how close it was to where we live, I wanted to spread awareness.” The contest received approximately 50 entries. Students voted to narrow down the top artworks, which Smith judged. Coincidentally, she chose Delbrouck’s artwork as the best, which students had also decided on as the winner. “Quite frankly, I was shocked there were that many quality
pieces,” Smith said. But the idea has spread further than Oak Harbor. Through a conference in Portland, Laurie Chin Sayres, a filmmaker who founded Labragirl Pictures, Ltd., in Colorado, found out about the art project and hopes to use the students’ images in her own documentary about human trafficking. “Here’s this small little island and this high school and this project has reached across the United States,” Smith said. As another way to spread awareness, Soroptimist will sponsor a presentation by a survivor at the high school in May. The presenter is 19 years old and from Oregon. She earned a 4.0 grade point average in school, played volleyball and she was a normal teenager until she got involved with the wrong man, Smith said. The man drugged her and forced her to cooperate with him through manipulation and threatening to hurt her sister, who he had photos of. “It’s a lot of fear tactics, and manipulation keeps them quiet for a period of time,” Smith said. The survivor will speak to students about warning signs and her experiences. “She is a remarkable young lady despite what she’s been through,” Smith said.

Weekly club eases job hunting pains By REBECCA OLSON Staff reporter
Finding a job is a fulltime job, according to T.J. Larrick, and those searching can use the helpful hints and leads found at Job Club. Larrick, employment specialist for the Department of Social and Health Services Division of Vocational Rehabilitation, meets with the unemployed, underemployed and those looking for a better job every Monday at 1 p.m. at the Oak Harbor Library for free. He completely deconstructs how to get a job by teaching tips for writing better resumes and cover letters and answering questions in job interviews, but his teaching goes further to include what employers are looking for and how the group can express that they possess the skills an employer seeks. Larrick teaches the group a pro-active approach: follow up on applications and set up informational interviews with the company; those could potentially become job interviews. “I focus a lot on how to help them help themselves,” Larrick said. “Part of it is for me to teach and also for people to come in here and work on something they need help on.” Be that a cover letter or interview techniques, everyone is at a different stage in their employment plan and Larrick understands that. With the difficult economy, many people who haven’t held a job recently

or who were laid off are having trouble securing a new job. “It’s as hard to learn how to find work as it is to find work,” said Deborah Hardy, who frequently attends Job Club. It’s very difficult to get a job these days, much less figure out how to apply for them, Hardy said. It’s a different process now than in her younger years when searching for jobs via the internet and filling out computer forms weren’t involved. “We work on strategies to work smarter. It’s very competitive to get a job. It’s different than it used to be; you have to really plan,” Larrick said. The club has been going on for six months and was started because Whidbey Island had no job clubs. With the help of Skagit Valley College, Oak Harbor Library and Work Source, the program has expanded. “Resources are tight, so it makes sense for everyone to get together and share those resources,” Larrick said. Approximately 12 people show up each week, Larrick

Fellow job searcher, Colleen Gregory, listens in. said. Generally, half the participants have attended before, which is beneficial because Larrick finds job leads tailored to the individuals between meetings. Colleen Gregor y has been coming to Job Club for three months in her search for a chef job. Larrick handed her job listings he’d found seeking chefs and cooks. “It gives me information on jobs and I learn things like how to fill out resumes and applications,” Gregory said about the club. Knowing how to answer the questions potential employers throw at her is one of her biggest hurdles

for landing a job, Gregory said. The club can help with that. A general meeting consists of Larrick handing out job leads, talking about unemployment trends and teaching about a topic. A couple of weeks ago, the club focused on answering the question posed by potential employers: “Tell me about yourself and why I should hire you.” Larrick helped the group develop templates that they can work on at home. “The nice thing about a club is you can practice and make your mistakes here and you won’t lose a job, but it might help you get one,” Larrick said. Larrick did have some positive news for the group. Unemployment in Island County is down to 8.2 percent. It had been between 10 and 13 percent. While Whatcom and
Snohomish counties sport similar numbers, Skagit County is now at 10 percent unemployment. “For the first time in a
