Burglaries top troubling increase in island crime Sheriff wants more deputies
By JESSIE STENSLAND Staff reporter
In one week in March, deputies with the Island County Sheriff’s Office responded to 411 calls for service. Among the long list of incidents they had to deal with were 19 car accidents, 12 burglaries, 11 thefts, nine assaults and three sex offenses. Amidst the calls, on-duty
deputies rushed to find a man who had kidnapped a woman and a 4-year-old boy from a home on South Whidbey. While several deputies ran down leads, others scoured the roads for the suspect’s truck. They ultimately found the vehicle near Coupeville, arrested the man and saved the woman and child. While it was a noteworthy week, Sheriff Mark Brown said it’s not completely out of the ordinary. His deputies and detectives have been dealing with an increasing
number of calls from citizens and, even more troubling, an increase in the number of serious crimes. Last October, they handled a double murder and then a case in which a man allegedly stabbed both of his parents. Yet recently compiled crime statistics show that the most glaring trend in both Island County and the city of Oak Harbor is the skyrocketing number of burglaries. Many burglary suspects See crime, A7

Gina Mammano Vander Kam creates unique art like her fabric piece below. Behind her are paintings by other artists taking part in the Stations of the Cross exhibit at the Pacific Rim Institute.
The Stations of the Cross are century-old images, but artists of the Christian Artist Group of Whidbey Island are painting new meaning into those images and the Easter season. Their art exhibit is more than art; it’s an experience of worship, acceptance and togetherness. View the art at the second annual Stations of the Cross exhibit. It opened Tuesday and continues daily through Easter Sunday, April 8, at the Pacific Rim Institute south of Coupeville. Join the artists for coffee and conversation from 4 to 5:30 p.m. Saturday, April 7. “The Stations of the Cross is a tradition that has gone on for hundreds of years,” said poet and installation artist Gina Mammano Vander Kam. The Stations of the Cross depict scenes from Jesus’ final week before crucifixion. But what these six artists are trying to do is make those stations contemporary. The artists used fabric, paint and more to bring the scenes to life in new, modern ways. “Our idea behind doing that is making them contemporary and more accessible to people. Our hope is as people come through
the exhibit, they’ll be able to feel the emotions and relate to it,” Vander Kam said. The Stations of the Cross date back to the 12th century and were originally meant to tell the story of the Passion of Christ to people who couldn’t read. “Because we have so much to read, I think the visual art nowadays brings back the meaning,” Vander Kam said. “It’s meant to be a dialogue,” added Rick Vander Kam, another participating artist. “Where most preaching tends to be monodirectional, this art invites conversation.” When Lynnette Wineman paints, she uses no external images and instead asks God what he wants to show her. One of her pieces of artwork is a painting of Jesus’ face. “For me personally, all my paintings are like downloads from God,” Wineman said. “It’s really kind of an extension of worship for me.”

Lavender Wind Farm owner Sarah Richards stands on the lawn of a home she is converting into a commercial kitchen and retail space. She hopes a change in the town’s regulations will retain the green space rather than convert it to parking spaces.
Parking rules pose a potential hurdle for Coupeville business By NATHAN WHALEN Staff reporter
Sarah Richards is hoping to open a business in Coupeville, but a pending town council decision concerning parking regulations will determine whether she will move forward with her project. The owner of Lavender Wind Farm is converting a historic home near downtown Coupeville into a retail space and commercial kitchen where she can produce and package her line of lavenderinfused products. However, the council needs to approve regulations allowing the owners of historic structures to forgo having to install additional parking spaces. As the town regulations stand, Richards would likely have to transform the grass on her corner lot into asphalt parking spots. The council last Tuesday night decided to continue the public hearing until April. “I was a little disappointed that they weren’t moving forward,” Richards said after the meeting. She wants a decision so she can complete renovations by June and take advantage of the busy tourist season. She owns the Cushen House, a craftsman house located on the corner of Alexander and Coveland streets. The house exists outside the town’s “historic limited commercial area” and as the law stands she would
have to provide parking spots. Placing additional parking on the property would probably spark outrage throughout town, she predicts. “The people in the community would scream,” Richards said, stating the parking spaces would destroy the character of the building and she would have to halt the project. The town has been hashing out new parking standards for some time and a public hearing was scheduled Tuesday night. Larry Kwarsick, town planner, said the recent unified design guidelines the town adopted states that parking spaces on lots with historic structures won’t be required and the town code must be changed accordingly. Richards wants to use the lawn to grow herbs and have a patio that will double as a community gathering place. A draft of new parking rules was unveiled at the public meeting March 27. Kwarsick said the council decided to focus solely on parking around historic structures and the remaining parts of the regulations will be addressed at a later date. The town wants to update the parking regulations in hopes of simplifying them and making them more responsive. A recent draft of the parking regulations proposes the creation of a Historic Downtown Parking District that expands the current historic area.
Kwarsick stressed that the council tasked him with developing regulations that apply to historic structures throughout town.
The Coupeville Town Council is scheduled to revisit parking regulations concerning historic buildings during its April 24 meeting.
A 3-year-old boy tried to stop his mother’s drunken boyfriend from strangling her during an alleged assault at an Oak Harbor home, according to a police report on the March 10 incident. Prosecutor charged the man, 27-year-old John Strobel Owen, in Island County Superior Court March 13 with assault in the second degree with aggravating circumstances and fourth degree assault. Both counts were charged as domestic-violence related. The alleged aggravating circumstance is that the assault occurred within sight and sound of the victim’s minor child. Owen pleaded not guilty March 26. The alleged victim reported that she and her two children were watching a movie with Owen at her apartment on North Oak Harbor Street. She said Owen drank a box of wine, started calling her names and then attacked
her after she accidentally hit his cell phone, according to a report by Officer Steve Nordstrand with the Oak Harbor Police Department. Owen allegedly sat on top of her stomach and choked her with both of his hands. He threatened to choke her to death if she didn’t stop screaming, the report states. The woman said her 3-year-old son tried to help her by getting in between herself and Owen. She was able to kick Owen off of her and ran to a neighbor’s apartment with her two children, the officer wrote. Nordstrand noted that Owen smelled of “intoxicants” and slurred his words. After he was arrested, Owen allegedly threatened to harm the woman, the report states. Owen is being held in jail on $35,000 bail. If convicted of the charges, he would face from six months to a year in jail under the standard sentencing range.

South Whidbey teen gets max sentence Judge keeps Freeland for causing crash that killed 3 passengers kidnapping suspect in jail By JESSIE STENSLAND Staff reporter
A deep sense of sorrow permeated a crowded courtroom in Coupeville last Friday afternoon as a young woman who killed three of her best friends in a drinking-anddriving accident learned her fate. Island County Superior Court Judge Vickie Churchill earned exhalations of surprise when she handed 18-year-old Kaylea Souza the maximum sentence of five years and eight months in prison, which was 14 months longer than the sentence recommended by the deputy prosecutor. “I know you are terribly sorry about this, but you chose to drink, you chose to drive,” she told Souza. “You will survive, you will come out of this. … I can only think of three lives,” Churchill added after delivering the sentence. Souza, a Langley resident, quietly wept through most of the twohour hearing and spoke briefly just before the judge announced her sentence. Souza apologized repeatedly and said she had lost her “very best friends.” “I’m sorry for all the pain that I have caused,” she said. Souza was intoxicated and behind the wheel in the South Whidbey crash on Wilkinson Road that killed Charles “Mack” Porter III, 19, Robert Knight, 22, and Marcel “Mick” Poynter, 20, just after midnight on Nov. 12, 2011. Deputy Prosecutor David Carman said Souza was speeding and made an illegal pass when she lost control and smashed the car

They described their despair and loss, but many also offered forgiveness to the young woman. Many of the speakers said they would like to see Souza take part in impact panels to teach young drivers about the devastation that drinking and driving can cause. Brandi Porter, Mack Porter’s sister, offered the judge a petition signed by 474 people who want Souza to be required to give presentations to young people after she gets out of prison. Churchill said she couldn’t legally control what Souza does after she serves her sentence, but Souza promised to work to help others learn from her mistakes. Rebecca Thomas, Mack’s mother, explained that she is a police officer in California and often deals
with tragedies caused by drinking and driving, but she never thought it would happen to her family. She also urged Souza to work with young people to prevent this kind of tragedy. “That is the only way I will ever have peace,” she said. Mack’s father, Staff Sgt. Mack Porter, Jr., expressed his sorrow at losing a son. “This is one pain that will never, ever go away,” said Porter, Jr. Robert’s parents, Bruce and Sharon Knight, came together to the podium. Sharon held up a picture of her son while Bruce spoke. He asked the judge to give Souza the maximum, “not as much as punishment for Kaylea, but moreover to send a stronger message to those who are watching – all the young people who were ‘devastated’ by the deaths of our sons; but, as I have learned, are already back to their old habits again, thinking it cannot, and will not, happen to them. It has only been 20 weeks tonight that Robert perished.” Knight also discussed the grieving process for the parents who lost their sons. “Regardless of whenever we find our way back to some sort of tolerable life, our sentence will continue for the rest of our lives,” he said. Mick’s mother, Georgiann’e Poynter, sobbed while she described the night that she awoke to let her son in the house, only to find the coroner and a deputy at her doorstep. “It is the worst thing a parent can ever experience,” she said. “Ever. Ever.”

A 22-year-old Greenbank man accused of kidnapping and rape likely won’t be getting out of jail anytime soon. George Downey made his first appearance in Island County Superior Court Monday. His attorney asked that he be released from jail awaiting trial on his own recognizance, but the judge didn’t agree. Downey pleaded not guilty to two counts of first-degree kidnapping, one count of first-degree rape with forcible compulsion, two counts of burglary in the first degree, a felony violation of a court order, a misdemeanor violation of a court order and assault in the fourth degree. All the counts, except one burglary, were charged as domestic-violence related. Downey’s attorney, Terry Smith of Oak Harbor, asked Judge Alan Hancock to release his client without bail. He’s currently being held in Island County Jail in lieu of $750,000 bail. Smith said Downey’s parents and grandmother have agreed to supervise Downey while he lives with them and works all day at a farm belonging to a family member. His parents, grandmother and a friend of the family addressed the court on his behalf. His mother promised to “watch him like a hawk” and make sure he does hard labor every day on the farm. Smith pointed out that Downey was cooperative with law enforcement since his arrest and had no criminal history prior to the incident. But Deputy Prosecutor David Carman vigorously argued against any change in the bail amount. He

said “it wasn’t a particularly isolated incident” since Downey had previously violated a no-contact order that barred him from contact with the victims in the kidnapping case. In addition, Carman emphasized that the seriousness of the alleged violent crimes makes him a danger to the public. Judge Hancock agreed that Downey would present “a substantial danger” and refused to alter the bail or other conditions of his release. Downey is accused of abducting his ex-girlfriend and her 4-year-old boy from a home on East Harbor Road near Freeland March 16. He allegedly raped the woman and threatened to kill himself and the victims by driving off Deception Pass Bridge, according to a deputy’s report on the incident.

Coupeville allows Rhinehart resigns from parks board charging stations By NATHAN WHALEN Staff reporter
Freeland sidewalk in the works Island County Public Works Department will hold an open house Tuesday, April 17, to present and discuss the plans for the construction of a new sidewalk on Main Street fronting the Payless Shopping Center. This project is funded primarily by county funds and is made necessary by the American with Disability Act. Island County officials will have drawings of the proposed improvement for viewing and will be available to answer questions and receive public input. The new 5-foot wide sidewalk will replace the existing gravel path and will also include construction of ADA compliant ramps, curb and gutter. The existing utility pole currently in the middle of the gravel path is planned to be relocated. The existing landscape will be replaced by Island County in partnership with Friends of Freeland. The public is encouraged to come any time between 6 to 9 p.m. April 17. The open house format is casual in nature and helps

The town of Coupeville is paving the way for electric cars. The Coupeville Town Council approved rules for allowing the installation of charging stations, which would benefit electric vehicles traveling through town. Town Planner Larry Kwarsick, who leads a double life as the city of Langley’s elected mayor, said the new ordinance was designed in response to legislation approved in 2009 to improve infrastructure to encourage the use of electric vehicles. Kwarsick noted during the meeting that China City in Oak Harbor and Freeland and Whidbey Telecom in Freeland have installed charging stations in their parking lots. The city of Oak Harbor recently installed two stations at a public parking lot. The new regulations for the town outlines the types of
stations that will be allowed in residential homes and the requirements for installation in larger, public parking lots. “When you make it easier for the public to do something, then we hope the public will take advantage of it,” Town Council member Bob Clay said during the meeting. The regulations state that new multifamily housing projects and parking lots exceeding 20 spaces must provide charging stations for 10 percent of the parking spaces. However, someone could obtain a waiver for the charging station requirement if approved by the Town Council. The electric charging stations is the latest action approved by the town to encourage electric vehicles. The elected body recently approved rules allowing for electric golf carts to travel on town streets.

IN OUR OPINION
Why not let the public in? The position of director of the North Whidbey Parks and Recreation District is an important one, paid for entirely with public funds, and yet the elected commissioners are being entirely too secretive in the hiring process. Craig Carlson, who recently retired from the position, is an excellent example of the importance of the position. Before he was hired, the parks district board was in disarray and as a result the district employees were unhappy. It didn’t take long after Carlson’s hiring that things began to change. The pool was operated more efficiently and more creatively. Employees quit complaining. District board meetings became somewhat more congenial, thanks in part to Carlson’s presence. With Carlson gone, the thousands of people who use the pool are concerned and curious about who will be chosen as his successor. The district has advertised the position and reduced the number of applicants to six finalists. And there’s the rub. The names of the finalists are not being released and interviews will be conducted in secret sessions over two days, April 11 and 12. Finally, the elected commissioners will convene in public session to do the hiring in what is likely to be a foregone conclusion. The commissioners may be meeting the letter of the law, as there is no requirement for public interviews or presentations by finalists for non-elective positions. But there is also no requirement that the names of the finalists be kept secret, as if it were a matter of national security. The parks board should emulate local school districts, who hire new directors, called superintendents, in a public way. A few finalists have their names made public, are introduced to interest groups such as parents and teachers, and then interviewed in private. Finally, the school board meets publicly to hire someone for the position. Coupeville School District Superintendent Patty Page recently went through such a process, and came out the winner. The fact her name was publicly known was not damaging in the least. It’s not too late for the parks board to make amends. Tell the six candidates they will be introduced at a public meeting before the executive session interviews. Let the public ask questions. There’s no need to make this a secretive process, so don’t do it. If some of the six don’t want their names publicized, just say goodbye. When elected officials do as much as legally possible in private, they lose the public’s respect. The North Whidbey Parks and Recreation District has worked years to restore its reputation. Don’t blow it now.

Letters to the editor Stop Oak Harbor’s march to the sea
The city of Oak Harbor has renewed its expensive efforts to annex 180 acres in the Swan Lake watershed. The proposal includes 105 acres known as the Fakkema Farm, with a second annexation to follow. It’s important for city residents to know the original annexation attempt was rejected by Island County. Next came an appeal to the Western Washington Growth Management Board; the board sided with the county’s decision on all 16 points brought forward by the city. Island County, local county residents, and Whidbey Audubon Society all oppose the move. The city’s own study shows the annexation isn’t necessary to handle projected growth. This sprawl simply isn’t needed.
By annexing this land, Oak Harbor will, in a lament overheard from a county resident, “complete its march to the sea.” Having the city straddling the island at this point would choke off any north/south wildlife corridor. What else is at stake? Large numbers of waterfowl, shorebirds, and raptors make use of the Swan Lake watershed (species sighted there are one seventh of the total species found in the United States.). For that reason, Island County has given it the designation of Habitat of Local Importance. Cutting down nearby forests and paving farmlands to build hundreds of houses would negatively impact this coastal estuary; increased sediment and pollution from excess development would change its character forever. Swan Lake is connected to the Strait of Juan de Fuca via

tide gates, and the abutting saltwater is part of the newly-created Smith & Minor Island Aquatic Reserve. The reserve harbors a myriad of wildlife species and the islands themselves are part of the National Wildlife Refuge System. Anything damaging the integrity of the lake has the potential of harming the Aquatic Reserve and the life it supports. Whidbey Audubon Society calls on all stake holders to take a fresh look at this annexation appeal. For instance, coastal estuaries such as Swan Lake are havens for young salmon fresh from the Skagit River. Salmon fishermen need to recognize the importance of these rearing areas and lobby for their protection. The potential loss of any farmland is a blow to the much-loved rural character of our island. Farming contributes to our local econ-
omy and helps preserve open space, but each farm lost pressures other farmers toward development. There is an alternative. Whidbey Audubon Society placed Swan Lake on the recently-published Puget Loop Birding Trail Map. This site, along with Penn Cove, Fort Ebey State Park and others, can bring tourist dollars to Oak Harbor, especially during the prime birding season of fall through spring. I encourage city business owners in the hospitality industry to seriously consider the possibilities. Many municipalities would love to have such amenities on their doorsteps! Swan Lake and the Aquatic Reserve are jewels that Oak Harbor should promote and protect, not overwhelm and degrade. Steve Ellis President, Whidbey Audubon Society

stations CONTINUED FROM A1 She said she hopes her art gets people conversing, both with each other and internally, and that it’s a privilege to be able to share art that’s so personal to her. “I so deeply want people to feel loved and accepted,” Gina Vander Kam gave as her reason for creating this art. One of her installation pieces depicts plates from the Last Supper. Each portrays a different emotion: betrayal, lost, alone. But Jesus’ plate offers acceptance. “With the installations, I hope people can find emotions they can relate to and a place of welcome and acceptance,” Gina Vander Kam said. She also writes poetry about what Jesus could have said about his life. “We can relate to him because he experienced the same emotions we do,” Gina Vander Kam said. Rick Vander Kam’s art brings the messages of the scripture to life in a contemporary way with images of foreclosure and fractured families.
crime CONTINUED FROM A1 have been caught and sent to jail, but the problem persists. So far this year, burglaries reported in the county have more than doubled since last year. In response, Brown is once again waging a public relations campaign aimed at convincing the county commissioners, and the public, that he absolutely needs more money for more deputies. He lost 23 percent of his commissioned officers in the last three years and described his office --- currently with 33 commissioned officers --- as the lowest-staffed in the state based on population. “I’m certainly sensing that everyone is feeling stretched very thin,” he said. “At some point, this has to end. Something has to change.” Brown probably has one of the grayest offices in the state. The average age of his deputies is 46 years old. Solutions are nebulous. Brown said he was told by a county commissioner that

“We each follow his way of pain,” Rick Vander Kam said, pointing out his image of a woman bearing the figurative cross of lost innocence following a literal cross bearer in Jerusalem. “We’re not just left with our burdens. We have others who can help with our burdens,” he added. An especially meaningful piece accompanies the station “Simon carries the cross of Jesus.” Viewers are asked to write their burdens on paper and attach them to a cross. Then they may read the other papers as a way to carry each others’ burdens.
he’s unlikely to get much extra from the bare-bones current expense fund, which pays for law and justice departments and many other general government functions. He said some people have made a point of emphasizing that 57 percent of current expense funds now go to the law-and-justice department, which is a much higher proportion than in previous years. But Brown said he surveyed sheriffs and found that other counties fund those department at an even higher percentage of their current expense funds. “I know that a lot of other departments are also hurting and I’ve been criticized for demanding more, but it’s my job to advocate for law enforcement,” he said. “I believe we should be the top priority.” Undersherif f Kelly Mauck said the office needs a minimum of five more deputies to deal with the crime increases and provide a consistent coverage of two patrol deputies in each of three precincts 24 hours, seven days a week. But to come up with the money for that, the county

At last year’s event, there were nearly 100 papers. “Life is full of burdens that are imposed on us that we need help carrying,” Rick Vander Kam said. Easter is an important season to take time to focus on spirituality, Gina Vander Kam said.
commissioners would have to make drastic cuts in other departments. Closing all the county parks and laying off the parks staff, for example, wouldn’t even be enough. Brown and other officials have kicked around the idea of proposing a special law-and-justice sales tax to voters, but he said it’s far from a perfect solution. Undersheriff Mauck suspects that the rise in crime is connected to the budget cuts, which included the elimination of the office’s drug enforcement unit and the designated traffic unit. The detective dedicated to investigating sex crimes and keeping track of registered sex offenders is doing the job that two detectives used to handle. “I think we are starting to see the results of a lack of pro-active drug investigations,” he said. “A lot of crimes, especially burglaries, are connected to drugs.” Statistics from the sheriff’s office show that the number of the most serious, violent crimes increased 10 percent from 2010 to 2011. The number of murders
“It’s an important luxury. We don’t take that time very often, so our hope for the community is they’ll take that time. Take time for themselves and slow down,” she said. Wineman described the art show and season as an invitation “to reflect and consider.” “We don’t give ourselves
the opportunity to do that enough, I think,” Gina Vander Kam added. Rick Vander Kam said that’s an art that’s been lost among much of Christianity today. No one should forget the importance of Jesus’ resurrection. “If Jesus had stayed dead, it would have just meant a lot of nice words and good ideas. But his resurrection means this is accessible to everyone,” Rick Vander Kam said. Discuss the artists’ works at a coffee and conversation event April 7. Other artists participating in the exhibit are Woody DeShong, Carol Snobel and Shawn M. Agosta. “We want to involve the community,” Wineman said. There’s an open invitation for artists to join in next year. The group offers a place for Christian artists to spend time together. “We feel like God has done a neat thing putting this group together and we want to expand it,” Wineman said.

went from none to two. The reports of rapes more than doubled from six to 13. On the positive side, the number of robberies stayed the same at three each year and the number of aggravated assaults decreased from 31 to 26. The overall number of 44 of the most serious crimes in 2010 may not seem like a huge burden, but Brown explained that those types of crimes take an immense amount of time for deputies who respond to the scene and the detectives who investigate. Less-serious cases inevitably get pushed aside. “We know that there are things falling through the
cracks,” Mauck admitted. While violent crime increased, burglaries have mushroomed. Reports of burglaries increased from 187 in the year 2010 to 331 last year. That’s a 77 percent jump. And they’re not letting up. Mauck said that from Jan. 1 to March 22 of this year, deputies responded to 105 burglaries. During the same period last year, they handled 49 burglaries. In addition, the volume of 911 calls that deputies respond to increased by 12.5 percent in one year. The story is a little different within the limits of Oak Harbor. Police Chief Rick Wallace said the officers also saw a sizable increase in burglaries, from 114 in 2010 to 144 in 2011. But he said 911 calls have remained relatively static in the last couple of years and the rates of most major crimes either stayed the same or decreased slightly. The Oak Harbor Police have faced budgets cuts in recent years, but it’s nowhere near the level of reductions that have hit the sheriff’s office or the county in general. Wallace said

he currently has left two positions unfilled because he’s concerned about the prospects of more budget trimming later this year. The passage of a special sales tax increase could pour more money into law enforcement, but there are problems with the idea. State law authorizes the county to ask voters to pass a special law-andjustice sales tax increase of one-tenth of 1 percent. If passed, 60 percent of the funds would go to the county and 40 percent would be distributed to cities. Brown explained that only onethird of the funds would have to go to criminal justice or firefighting purposes. In addition, he said the law allows supplanting, which means the money could be used to funds things that are already being funded. Mauck points out that the way the law is written, the sheriff’s office could conceivably receive no net increase in funding. “If it were framed in a way that people knew exactly what they were voting on and exactly where the money would go, then it might work,” Brown said.

Cemetery concerns: employees, flag, flowers, stones, statues By KATHY REED Staff reporter
Armed with apologies for what they call unofficial policies and practices at Maple Leaf Cemetery and with an attorney alongside them, the two remaining commissioners for Island County Cemetery District 1 held a special board meeting at the Veterans of Foreign Wars Post in Oak Harbor March 30. Just over a dozen people were on hand to watch board members Bob Little and Ann Abrahamse increase the number of board meetings each month and deal with issues arising following the suspension of Maple Leaf Cemetery’s three employees. Attorney Rod Kaseguma, of the Bellevue law firm of Inslee Best, explained his role and that of the Cemetery District commissioners. “I’m here to make sure the commissioners run the meeting smoothly and according to state law,” Kaseguma said. “The commissioners must govern the district according to state law. That also means the commissioners control the way the cemetery
is run and have the authority to direct its employees.” Holding public comments until the end, commissioners quickly moved through several points on the agenda, most notably calling for an increase to the board’s regular meeting schedule. Instead of meeting once a month, commissioners will now meet twice a month. Meetings will be held at 1 p.m. at the VFW on the first and third Wednesdays of each month. Commissioners also discussed contracts for cemetery maintenance and a contract for accounting and clerical services. “We are working on the contract for maintenance,” said Abrahamse. “We have temporary maintenance in place, we’re holding funerals and burials, but I would like to make a motion to table this until next Wednesday, when I’ve had a chance to do more research.” Only one person from the audience spoke up when commissioners confirmed the cemetery’s three employees remain on unpaid administrative leave, simply asking commissioners, “Why?”
Commissioner Little continued without answering, saying they had asked the employees for the combination to the safe, but that they had not been given the information. “Why don’t you take it up with the former employees?” asked the unidentified woman. “That’s what we’re trying to do,” Little said. “We can’t open the safe without the combination,” said Abrahamse. “Everybody has hunted high and low for it and no one has been able to find it. I make a motion that we contact the former employees’ attorney to request that information again.” When the meeting was opened up for public comment, Skip Johnson was the first to speak, asking several questions. “First, why don’t you just hire a locksmith to open the safe? What is the policy about removing flowers that aren’t the appropriate color? Why are the flags being removed from the holders? And why isn’t the main flag flying?” Little said they had not hired a locksmith because

Commissioners say they have no idea which graves the statues belong to but would like to be able to return them to their proper location. they were trying not to incur the cost if the combination was available. Abrahamse said there was no formal policy she was aware of that restricts the color of flowers and apologized to Johnson, who claimed red, white and blue flower arrangements he had placed on a gravesite had been removed because they “were not in season.” “This was a veteran’s grave,” Johnson said. “Red, white and blue are always in season for veterans.” What seemed most disturbing to those in attendance, however, was the treatment of the cemetery’s special occasion flag, presented to Maple Leaf in May, 2011 by the American Legion. “The flags have been located, organized and refolded,” said Abrahamse. “The main flag was found crumpled in a ball on the bottom shelf in the
store room.” (When contacted after the meeting, American Legion Post Commander Lenord Little said that because it doesn’t appear the flag has touched the ground, it can be flown again.) Laurie Croan asked commissioners why she was unable to use the provider of her choice to purchase her mother’s headstone. “I was told if I didn’t use one of your providers, then the cemetery was under no obligation to maintain the stone,” Croan said. “This is a community cemetery. It is owned by you,” Abrahamse said, indicating audience members. “You can use whatever provider you want, you can go anywhere you want. I’m so sorry.” “That is a policy to be made by the commissioners,” said Kaseguma. “If there is no

policy in effect, you shouldn’t have been told that.” Only one other person spoke up, asking commissioners what they intend to do about the seat vacated by longtime cemetery commissioner Jim Flowers, who resigned his position following a reported altercation with Mike Dougliss, suspended cemetery manager, March 14. “We have 90 days to find a suitable replacement,” said Little. “If we can’t find one, then the state has 180 days to appoint someone.” “Would you like to apply?” asked Abrahamse, drawing a laugh from the crowd. When the meeting adjourned, Abrahamse immediately went to Croan, who had been moved to tears during the meeting. Croan said she had been trying to place the headstone at her mother’s grave for a year. “I just want a resolution,” said Croan, who explained she had just purchased headstones for her grandparents at another cemetery and was not unfamiliar with the process. “I was told I could only order a stone through them, so I ordered a custom stone. They lost the file, and when the stone came in, it was wrong. This has been going on for a year and there’s still no stone. “What happened to me should not have happened,” she continued. “What if it had been somebody else who has no clue? And what are you going to do -— argue with them when you’re trying to bury your mom?” Abrahamse said they are also hoping to find the homes of nearly three dozen statues that have been removed from gravesides. The statues were found in a corner of the staging area and commissioners have no idea where they belong. “Some got removed, some didn’t. That’s what the commissioners are trying to sort out,” Abrhamse said. “When they were removed, they were taken off a stone that had a name on it, but none of them were marked.” Service Alternatives is providing groundskeeping at no charge to the cemetery until things are sorted out. Abrahamse said what appears to be long overdue maintenance has been performed around the flat headstones. “Some of them were so overgrown you couldn’t even read the names,” said Abrahamse. “It’s improved from two weeks ago. It will be beautiful this spring, I promise.”

Coupeville stuns South Whidbey in soccer shootout Defense shines in Wolves’ win By JIM WALLER Sports editor
This was more than the average win. Not only did the Coupeville High School soccer team win 1-0 Friday, but the Wolves did it on the road over rival South Whidbey (3-1, 4-1 )in a shootout to hand the Falcons their first loss. It was also a great bounceback win for the Wolves who suffered a tough 3-2 loss to powerful King’s earlier in the week. Coach Paul Mendes said “this is exactly what we needed” after “coming off the heart-breaking loss.” He added, “It was a great team effort…I am very proud of our boys. It was a rainy, freezing night, playing away from home, and we came out
and played the best defense we played all year.” Mendes said Luke Pelant and Taylor Phillips were “outstanding containing” South Whidbey’s offense, and Zach Forland “came up big for us” in goal as Coupeville earned the shutout. The thrilling match had an intense finish with “both teams creating chances,” Mendes said. Falcon keeper Garrett Thompson made two “super saves,” according to Mendes, to send the game to the shootout. He denied Josh Wilsey’s free kick late in regulation and a close shot by JP Ward in overtime that would have won it for the Wolves. The tense conclusion of regulation and overtime was matched in the shootout where the outcome was pushed to seven rounds. Both teams converted their first two shots; Coupeville

Oak Harbor became part of Marysville Getchell High School baseball history Friday, March 30 -- part it wished to avoid. After the Wildcats walloped the visiting Chargers 16-5 in five innings in the first game of a double-header, Marysville Getchell took game two 3-2 to record the new school’s first-ever varsity baseball win. The Chargers entered the day with six losses by an average of eight runs, and game one was typical of their season when the Wildcats used 15 hits and 10 MG errors to roll to the big win. Marysville Getchell led briefly with two runs in the top of the first, then Oak Harbor tied it with two in the second before scoring 14 over the third and fourth innings to stroll to the easy win. In the second, Andrew Snavely walked and Mike Maletto reached

With two outs, another error and a single by Zach Zimmer evened the score. In an eight-run third, Oak Harbor blended singles by Sam Glavick (two RBI), Austyn Walker, Maletto, Zimmer
and Grant Schroeder; two errors; two walks; a passed ball and sacrifice fly to score its runs. Brent Mertins drove in two runs with a single in the six-run fourth, and Glavick and Maletto each had run-scoring base hits.
Glavick, Schroeder, Mertins and Zimmer each finished 2-for-2. Game two was a different story as the Wildcats managed only four hits off submarine pitcher Rylan Faucett and committed five errors. Although the game was played in Oak Harbor, the Chargers were the home team in the second game because it was a makeup game for rainouts scheduled for Marysville the previous two days. Oak Harbor scored two runs in the top of the fourth when David Kusnick was hit by a pitch, Snavely singled and Zimmer drove them home with a base hit. The Chargers countered with a three-run fourth, combining three hits with two errors to take the lead, the game and a place in team history. Glavick and Richter had the only other Oak Harbor hits. The Wildcats (1-3, 3-4) play at Mountlake Terrace (2-2, 2-4) at 4 p.m. today.
lead when they converted in round three.
Ward scored with the fourth shot while Forland stopped the Falcon attempt to even the match. Phillips and his South Whidbey counterpart each scored on the fifth shot to send the match to sudden death. Sean Donley and the South Whidbey shooter each knocked home the sixth shot, setting up David Hefflinger’s game winner. After Hefflinger’s score, the the Falcons’ seventh attempt thumped off the post and the Wolves collected the win. Mendes said Forland “stepped up big in the shootout, making the big save and getting his hand on two other shots that went in.” He added, “Zach was reading their shots well, and he put us in a position to win the game.” Coupeville (1-3, 2-3) goes to Sultan (0-4, 0-6) at 7 p.m. Friday.
prep roundup Wildcat soccer team Oak Harbor mistakes suffers 2 home losses costly in fastpitch loss The Oak Harbor High School soccer team dropped a pair of home matches this past week. Meadowdale took advantage of Oak Harbor mistakes to defeat the Wildcats 3-1 Friday, then Oak Harbor held first-place Shorewood scoreless for the first half before falling 3-0 Monday. In regard to the Meadowdale (2-3-1) match, coach Brian Thompson said, “We didn’t play as well as we have been lately. (We made) a few little mistakes that changed the game in Meadowdale’s favor.” Alex Krantz, with an assist from Caleb Gatica-Cortes, scored the Oak Harbor goal. Undefeated Shorewood finally broke through a stubborn Oak Harbor defense in the second half. On paper the match looked like a mismatch for the winless Wildcats. The Thunderbirds came in with a 5-0 record and a resounding 7-0 win over previously undefeated and 10th-ranked Marysville Getchell last week. But the Wildcat defense, behind goal keeper Kevin Silveira, blanked the Shorewood in the first half. Thompson said, “Our defense was doing a great job. The second half we had a few injuries which allowed Shorewood to penetrate our defense and score.” Oak Harbor (0-6-1) goes to Everett (2-5) at 7:30 p.m. tonight.
The Oak Harbor High School fastpitch team committed five errors in the second inning and Shorecrest turned the miscues into six runs on the way to a 10-0 win over the Wildcats at Hillcrest Elementary Friday. For the second consecutive game, Wildcat pitcher Emily Hunt threw well but was the victim of defensive mistakes and no offensive support. Hunt finished with a six-hitter while striking out five and walking two. Coach Jess Weikle said Hunt “pitched a great game, getting her fielders easy ground balls and easy pop flies; unfortunately, balls dropped and errors were made behind her.” The Scots scored three runs in the first before the error-filled, six-run second. Weikle said, “We simply couldn’t battle back. Though the girls picked themselves up and played great defense following that inning…their efforts were not enough to do any damage to the nine-run deficit.” Samm Zimmerman led the Oak Harbor offense with two hits. Morgan Young and Kelsey Rankin also singled. Oak Harbor (0-5, 2-7) goes to Marysville Getchell (0-4, 1-6) at 4 p.m. Tuesday, April 10.
Misplay hurts Wolves in loss to Murphy What a difference a play makes. One mistake by the Coupeville defense turned a close game into a 7-0 win for Archbishop Thomas Murphy in Everett Monday. Coupeville sophomore Ben Etzell and ATM’s ace Levi Mavorhis were hooked up in a scoreless pitching duel heading into the bottom of the fourth. After allowing one run, Etzell induced a fly ball with two outs that should have ended the inning. Unfortunately, the ball was dropped and another run scored. A walk loaded the bases and then Trevor Morrison unloaded a grand
slam, and suddenly it was 6-0. The Wolves couldn’t counter against Mavorhis, who finished with a 12-strikeout three-hitter. Etzell collected two of the hits; Aaron Trumbull had the other. Coach Willie Smith said, “Overall, I felt we played very well, and if we can come up with the catch in the fourth, we are looking at a 1-0 deficit, and who knows what could have happened.” Coupeville (0-5, 2-7) gets another shot at first-place Archbishop Murphy (9-0) at 4 p.m. today at Robert Sherman Field.

During the past few years, low interest rates, war and uncertain stock market performance combined to push prices of gold and silver to their highest levels in 25 years. We have studied the investment and retail markets for decades, and in the past during times of economic uncertainty (which is deepening now), there have been dramatic price declines in many areas of the jewlery, gold and retail markets. Which is why this may be the best time in decades for you to sell for some of the highest prices ever.

RIGHT: Ethel horrifies her step-child, Lily Belle Savage, played by Anjelica Sistrunk-Glasgow, by hiding $10 million the step-children will stop at nothing to get their hands on. CENTER: Ethel tricks her greedy step-son, Titus, played by Kent Junge, as he searches for her millions. By REBECCA OLSON Staff reporter
With her blue hair, one-eyed teddy bear and curious remarks, Ethel Savage may appear to be the insane one. But as her family shows their true colors and has her admitted into a mental institution, insanity isn’t so clear cut in the Whidbey Playhouse production of “The Curious Savage,” opening Friday, April 6. Ethel Savage, played by Joyce Napoletano, inherited $10 million when her husband died. She had been content to be a loving wife for years but now, she has a chance to live her own dreams and use the money to make others happy. But her three step-children are certainly not content to let Ethel waste $10 million on people other than themselves. Titus Savage, played by Kent Junge, Samuel Savage, played by Kevin Meyer and Lily Belle Savage, played by Anjelica Sistrunk-Glasgow, will stop at nothing to get their hands on Ethel’s millions, including falling for a few of her humorous tricks. More amusing are the quirky residents of the mental institution, the Cloisters. Fairy May, played by Shealyn Christie, is full of silly remarks, energy and the need to feel loved. Kind-hearted Hannibal, played by Sean Hall, recently took up the violin, believing himself to be
deeply talented. Mrs. Paddy, played by Suzanne Maris, hates everything in the world, from tombstones to salt to bladders, and gave up electricity for Lent, to the annoyance of her fellow residents. While those quirks elicited many laughs from the audience, some of the residents’ issues run deeper. While kindly and caring, Florence, played by Julie McNutt, doesn’t realize her son, John Thomas, played by Alex Felger, was taken from her, just as Jeffrey, played by Bob Foster, doesn’t realize his scars from the war have caused him to retreat into himself and forget his wife. Also adding to the humor are the Cloisters staff, Doctor Emmett, played by Fred Conley, and Miss Wilhelmina, played by Keziah Benson. Despite the supposed insanity of the institution, Ethel Savage finds happiness with the residents and a way to help them, leaving the audience to experience the warm glow of a happy ending that says kindness hasn’t been lost in a world that often seems so savage. “It’s been a delightful journey. I’ve really, really enjoyed working with all of these people,” said director Mary K. Hallen. “I couldn’t think of a better way to start the month of April off than presenting this to the community.” This is the fifth play Hallen has

directed at the Playhouse and she’s acted with many members of the cast. “So it’s like party time to be with people you’re familiar with, then shaping them to be like people they’re not familiar with,” Hallen said. Foster, playing the part of introverted patient Jeffrey, said he enjoys playing various characters. “I like doing a complete opposite of the last character I played,” Foster said. In the recent production “Busy Body,” Foster played a loud and angry character, as opposed to his current shy character. Junge plays one of the loud, angry characters in “The Curious Savage,” as the disreputable senator, Titus, who will do anything to rob Ethel Savage of her fortune. “One of my favorite parts in acting is the nonspeaking parts,” Junge said. The amusing and odd actions of the patients give him plenty of chances to exhibit appalled facial expressions and irate body language. When Hallen first heard about the play, she said she fell in love with it. “There’s no swearing, there’s no violence and the normal stuff you see now to enthrall people,” Hallen said, adding that it’s a well-written story, “and it teaches you a gentle lesson.” Playing Ethel Savage is Napoletano’s sixth role at the Playhouse. She also acted in
California. “It was fun. It was trying to figure out how to be a senior citizen,” Napoletano said, laughing. “It’s an amazing group of people. Everyone helps each other. It’s just such a great experience --- it’s why I keep coming back!” Napoletano’s favorite parts about playing Ethel Savage were the snide remarks she gets to make to her step-children and the dry humor. “I think it’s one of those plays that’ll leave you feeling good at the end. There’s such quirky characters that’ll keep you there till the end. Just come!” Napoletano said. Hallen said she fell in love with the characters as she directed them. Fairy was one of her favorites to direct because the character skips and dances everywhere she goes, Hallen said. “They’re going to fall in love with them all, even the Savages,” Hallen said of the audience, adding that she hopes the Savages’ actions make people uncomfortable while helping everyone see how those kind of actions come across, “which is, after all, the purpose of theater; to take a look at the human condition as it were.” “The show is for everyone, and the message that it imparts is delightful. We all get tired of the greedy people winning in the world and here’s a place to come and see them get their just desserts,” Hallen said.

When robots compete on the court, the real stars are the students By JOE HUNT
Special to the News-Times
When Oak Harbor High School teacher Che Edoga talks about robotics, whether in the classroom or on the field of competition, he is quick to emphasize the unobvious. “It’s not about the robot,” he said. “Once the kids get past the robot, they begin to see the world of possibility that surrounds robotics. The robot is just the end product.” There’s 3D CAD modeling, engineering, metal fabrication and welding, electronics, pneumatics, computer programming, business planning, research, creative design, industrial safety, inventory and acquisition, marketing and above all, cooperation. “There is nothing I can teach them (about robotics) that won’t be obsolete by the time they get out of school,” he said. “That’s how fast the field is evolving. But if they gain basic skills, especially the ability to research and experiment on their own, then they will be able to use that for a lifetime.” At FIRST Robotics, a hightech competition held in Seattle in March, cooperation is every bit as important as the engineering. Robots appeared to be front and center, like star athletes, but there was so much more going on in the background. Almost all of it centered on professional courtesy, with teams working with each other, sharing parts and tools and know-how. Once the three-day event gets under way, Edoga steps back and lets the kids run the entire show. In the end, Oak Harbor did not make it to the quarterfinals of the competition, but they did come home with a trophy Edoga considers more important. Oak Harbor earned the “Gracious Professionalism,” award, a sportsmanship-type trophy, for reaching out to other teams with assistance. Student Kyle Noe spent much of his time working with a team from Mexico, helping them get their robot into competition shape. On the competition side, teams of students ushered dozens of robots around the CenturyLink Event Center in Seattle, preparing for another bout. Oak Harbor’s drive team of Caterina Amsler, Nina Manning, Rachel Margraf and Mallory Hunt escorted Robot 2980 to the competition field. There, three robots on the Blue Team and three robots on the Red Team met on a small basketball court. At each end were three sets of baskets at different heights. At the bell, the robots jumped into action for the

The drive team of Caterina Amsler, Nina Manning, Rachel Margraf and Mallory Hunt wait to compete. 15-second autonomous portion, where the robots independently shoot basketballs into the hoops. At the second bell, the drive teams moved forward and took control of the robots using joy sticks to pick up more basketballs from the floor and score as many baskets as possible. The robots were varied in style and ability. Oak Harbor had a two-pronged approach to scoring baskets, with an airpowered shooter to make high baskets (worth three points) and a drop box to make low baskets (one point). At inspection, though, they discovered their robot measured 1/4 inch over the size limit, and that forced them to abandon the pneumatic shooter. In the last minute of competition, the robots moved toward the center floor, where there were three platforms balanced on a fulcrum like a teeter-totter. The robots worked as a team to get one or two robots onto the platform and get it to
balance in the center. But the greatest achievement in the competition is to have competing robots suddenly switch gears and work as partners so that each balances on the teeter-totter together. That, in FIRST Robotics language, is “cooperatition,” and the main emphasis and philosophy behind the event. Oak Harbor is in its fourth year participating in FIRST Robotics. Its first team consisted of five students. This year there were 30. The specifications for the robot are announced six weeks before the big event. The team developed ideas with CAD designs then presented the plans to a committee from the community, which picked one for development. The team improved the design, then got four weeks to build and test the robot. Most teams have major sponsorships, with different companies providing funds and expertise to help students

Next year, Bowman has invited students to come to their work site to job shadow and work with engineers to build the parts.

Flash Back There he was − our eyes met, My heart skipped a beat. Was it fear? I turned and left, feeling confused − What is happening to me? He called and I felt scared! Or was it excitement? We became friends for many months, I now felt secure. Then one day he said to me, “This friendship of ours must cease”. He leaned and kissed me gently, I knew exactly what he meant. He asked me to marry him − And I said “Yes”! The years flew by with friendship and love, Certainly we were blessed. As I was cooking his dinner one night, I felt his gaze upon my back. I turned and saw his eyes were wet, And asked if it was something I said. He said to me and I quote, “Of all the thorns in Las Vegas, I found a rose”. My heart burst open when I heard his words, I’ll cherish them forever. As the years took their toll, I watched him slip slowly away from me. His hugs and kisses were frail, I wanted to take care of him forever. I miss his hugs and kisses, The love and friendship too. But all is not lost because, The beautiful memories are not few.
− Love Remains Forever. Helen Genis Employment General
