Loading zone seen as gone forever

State grant energizes schools BY BEN WATANABE Staff reporter

By JIM LARSEN Record editor

In the mind of Langley’s mildmannered grocer, Gene Felton, it’s gone forever. “It does not appear we’ll get that loading zone back,” he said Thursday morning after a meeting Wednesday with Mayor Larry Kwarsick. “But it’s still my preference to get the old spot back.” After taking some criticism at Monday’s city council meeting for eliminating the morning hours loading zone on Second Street just east of the Star Store parking lot in favor of more hours of public parking, Kwarsick met Wednesday with Felton, who owns the Star Store grocery and mercantile, and Jenn and Sieb Jurrians, who own Prima Bistro, a restaurant on the top floor of the same building and whose business also depended on the Second Street loading zone. It’s where truckers could safely and easily pull off the street and bring their goods into the businesses. “Everybody got to express their opinions,” Kwarsick said, adding that he has “no regrets” about his decision. The one bit of consensus that came out of Wednesday’s meeting is that truck drivers won’t have to worry if they now double-park or park with one end sticking out where it doesn’t belong. Kwarsick said the truck drivers will be assured they will not receive citations for improper parking while servicing businesses. He’ll have Police Chief Randy Heston put it in writing when he returns from vacation. “The city has no interest in interfering with their parking habits,” Kwarsick said. That’s no small thing to truck drivers, according to Felton. He said a Columbia Beer and Wine truck driver blocked one lane of traffic on Second Street last week when he found the loading zone was gone. “We have to pay for our own parking See zone, A17

Rascally rabbit found in time for Easter Sunday By JESSIE STENSLAND Staff reporter

They call him Rat. He chases balls like a dog and uses a litter box like a cat. He demands attention like a toddler and sometimes seems to think he’s a person. His given name is actually Floppy, which is a perfectly reasonable monicker for an adorable, lop-eared bunny. But his fluffy, stuffed-animallike appearance belies the rascal that lies within. “He’s a character,” his owner, Natasha Sheldon, says with a smile. Floppy’s rascally, wandering ways recently provided his family with an Easter-time miracle of sorts.

Floppy lives with Sheldon, her 7-year-old daughter Sasha, a woman named Joan Parry and a Yorkshire terrier in a Freeland home. Sheldon is a live-in caregiver for Parry, a cheerful senior citizen who’s unusually tolerant of a rabbit that loves to steal her newspapers. “I’ve never seen a rabbit like him,” Parry said. “He’s special.” As Sheldon explained, she received the Holland lop from an ex-boyfriend about two and a half years ago. Born on Camano Island, the baby bunny was as cute as can be and quickly won her and her daughter’s hearts. But just as See floppy, A10

The best possible scenario has come true for the South Whidbey School District after applying for more than $600,000 in state grant funds. The Office of the Superintendent of Public Instruction announced Thursday the South Whidbey School District was one of 43 school districts across Washington awarded the funds. “This will yield about $90,000 in annual savings in energy expenses for the district,” said District Superintendent Jo Moccia in an email. “This is great news for SWSD.” In total, South Whidbey schools will receive $685,000 in grant money. Earlier this year, the school district had an energy audit performed by Ameresco Quantum, an energy consultant company based in Renton. Representatives from Ameresco told the school board in early March they discovered the district could save about $90,000 by making cost-efficient improvements, repairs and upgrades to the district’s four main campuses: South Whidbey High School, Langley Middle School, South Whidbey Elementary School and the District Service and Transportation Center. They also estimated cash incentives from Puget Sound Energy worth about $152,000 for upgrades like new, more energy-efficient fluorescent bulbs and light timers. Up-front, the school district will make a $200,000 down payment from capital funds for the work. The South Whidbey School District will complete almost $1.8 million in improvements. Moccia said the work will occur over the next six months. Washington’s Superintendent of Public Instruction, Randy Dorn, said the $20.9 million grant, divided among the 43 districts, will help create long-term operational savings for the school districts and stimulate construction employment. The grant money came from the state Legislature. Earlier energy grant funding totaled $50 million in 2010 See Energy, A17

Girl Scout Lexie Smith of Troop 42161 on South Whidbey carries the American flag into a Board of Island County Commissioners’ meeting during a ceremony honoring Girl Scouts from throughout Whidbey Island last week.

A century of Girl Scouts Girl Scouts from several different troops on South and Central Whidbey Island were on hand when the Island County commissioners passed a resolution recognizing 100 years of Girl Scouts and proclaiming 2012 “The Year of the Girl.” The Brownies, Juniors and Daisies representing each troop performed a flag ceremony in front of a packed house in the Commissioners Hearing Room on Monday afternoon, March 26. The threemember board unanimously approved the resolution before taking time to be photographed with the Girl Scouts.

Girl Scouts donate to Whidbey General Girl Scouts do more than just sell cookies. Junior Girl Scouts and Brownies troops from Oak Harbor recently participated in a project to celebrate Girl Scout Birthday Week. All troops were asked to donate baby girl items for layette baskets. Troops 42689 and 42013 were assigned to make the baskets and deliver them to two baby girls born at WGH during Girl Scout Birthday week. One baby receiving a basket was Jaslyn Jade Sutton. Her parents are Stephanie Moss and Sylvester Sutton of Freeland. “What a fantastic experience for us to share with Jaslyn when she gets older,” Moss said. “Please extend our thank you to the Girl Scouts; what a wonderful basket they made us with beautiful items.” This year was extra special as the Girl Scouts were also celebrating their own 100th Birthday.

The South Whidbey Historical Society will host “Rebecca: The Story of Rebecca Ebey,” a Jill Johnson presentation, at 1 p.m. Sunday, April 15. The South Whidbey Historical Society’s “Then and Now” will feature Jill Johnson, Whidbey Island’s premier storyteller, recreating the life of Rebecca Davis Ebey who, along with her husband, Isaac Ebey, was one of the first settlers of the northern Puget Sound region. Rebecca’s husband was a well-known Washington pioneer, homesteader, legislator and military commander. The story is told through the words of Rebecca Ebey’s diary which began three months after her arrival on Whidbey Island in June of 1852 and ended abruptly with her death in September 1853. The diary is a remarkable document revealing a bright, sensitive, young woman facing huge hardships caused by weather, isolation, loneliness, pregnancy, illness and relentless, hard, physical work. However, Rebecca also shares her joys: the beauty of the land, strong friendships and a sense of accomplishment as she and Isaac together create a community. The presentation is supported by the South Whidbey Historical Society, Island County Historical

Play director imprisoned for violating court order By JESSIE STENSLAND Staff reporter

A well-known member of the South Whidbey performing arts community was sentenced to 15 months in prison this week for repeatedly violating a court order. Michael Barker, a 60-yearold Clinton resident, pleaded guilty in Island County Superior Court to a felony violation of a court order Monday. Violating a domestic

violence no-contact order or other court order becomes a felony if there are two prior convictions; he had four prior convictions. Barker repeatedly disobeyed an order preventing him from contacting his ex-wife by driving by her work or calling her home. Barker is well known and is a respected director of plays at Whidbey Island Center for the Arts. He and his wife previously ran a fair-trade

importing business. In court Monday, Barker’s attorney asked the judge to impose a sentence of 364 days in jail, which is below the standard sentencing range. He explained that his client was anguished over the breakdown of his marriage and just wanted to have contact with his daughters. The attorney, Peter Simpson of Coupeville, said Barker takes responsibility for his actions, but wants to

stay in jail where he can participate in treatment. A friend of Barker’s addressed the court on his behalf. The woman said Barker suffers from bipolar disorder and has lost everything to the illness. Barker addressed the court and apologized for his behavior. He said he finally woke up to the nightmare he has caused his family. He said he wants to eventually have contact with his daugh-

ters again and will fully comply with court orders. “I was insane with grief,” he said. “I was out of control.” Deputy Prosecutor David Carman, however, argued against a sentence below the standard sentencing range. He pointed out that Barker received a first-time offender waiver — which is a light sentence given to defendants who don’t have a felony criminal history — when he was

convicted of the same charge last year. In addition, Carman said Barker had been evicted from a retirement home for harassing his ex-wife’s mother. In the end, Judge Alan Hancock agreed with the prosecutor and found that it would be “very inappropriate” to impose a sentence below the standard range. He sentenced Barker to prison for 15 months.

NEWSLINE | WEATHER REPORT: Mostly sunny Saturday with a high of 54 and a low of 40. Partly sunny Sunday with a high of 56 and a low of 45. LANGLEY Two tourism projects funded The city of Langley tapped out its tourism fund by awarding approximately $10,600 to support two projects this summer. The project to make a “viral video” boosting Langley received $8,000 after Sherry Jennings, the chamber’s promotions leader, asked council members “if you can find it in your heart to fund this.” The three council members present, Hal Seligson, Bruce Allen and Doug Allderdice, provided the majority vote needed for approval. Jennings described it as a “Langley Loop video.”

Sherry Jennings makes a successful pitch for more tourism money from the Langley City Council.

A song has been written, the local singing group The Rural Characters will record it and George Henny will be one of the acting “stars” in the production. Jennings said she hopes the video will be ready by May 20. “It sounds better than

‘Do Nothing Here,’” said Councilman Allen, referring to a failed old advertising slogan, before casting his yea vote. The council also agreed to give $2,600 to the second annual Langley Style fashion show. The first effort last summer was surprisingly successful in drawing business to town, backers said. “It was the biggest day I’ve had in 22 years,” said Cynthia Tilkin, who owns a women’s clothing store. The money will be used for off-island advertising for the show, which will be held in the Clyde Theatre on a date to be announced later. Mayor Larry Kwarsick said the city has money to fund the two projects, but that’s it for now. “The pipeline is closed after this allocation,” Kwarsick said. “We had the funds because tourism is up, but no more.”

Marijuana sales backer stalled Lucas Jushinski wanted to talk about marijuana Monday night,

but Mayor Larry Kwarsick delayed the discussion until the next Langley City Council meeting April 16. “I’d like a conversation about medical cannabis,” Jushinski said during the public comment portion of the meeting. He had proposed a medical marijuana business for Langley, but during a non-voting council workshop last month, Kwarsick informally scotched the idea. His main concern was the conflict between lenient state marijuana laws and strict federal laws. The council at the time seemed to support the mayor’s position. Jushinski, a Freeland resident, obviously wasn’t pleased with the way the issue was moving, but Kwarsick told him to come back next meeting. “We don’t have a full council tonight so we can’t discuss it,” he said. “It’s on our next agenda.” Council members Rene Neff and Jim Sandberg were absent from Monday’s meeting.

Langley Loop effort lauded A pot of flowers was treated like a hot potato at the Langley City Council meeting Monday night. The city was trying to thank those involved in the successful “Langley Loop” sign campaign, which raised money, designed signs and followed the complex process of having signs erected along state and county roads that point visitors toward Langley. A number of people involved in the project attended the meeting. The colorful bouquet of flowers was first handed to business owner Cynthia Tilkin, who promptly carried it two rows back and handed it to Sherry Jennings, who spearheaded the Langley Loop project for the chamber. Jennings looked a bit flushed before setting the bouquet on its own seat, center aisle, where it spent the rest of the night alone. County Commissioner Helen Price Johnson was in attendance as was metal artist Tim Leonard, among others, and former mayor Paul Samuelson was credited for his support. Mayor Larry Kwarsick called it an “amazing accomplishment,” and the consensus seemed to be that Jennings deserved the bouquet.

COUNTY Island Transit ceremony set Island Transit will soon have a new headquarters and elected officials and county leaders will be on hand to help celebrate the start of construction. A ground-breaking ceremony for Island Transit’s 43,000-square-foot headquarters building is scheduled for 11 a.m. Tuesday, April 10, at the Island Transit campus located north of the intersection of Highway 20 and Parker Road. U.S. Rep. Rick Larsen, State Sen. Mary Margaret Haugen, Island Transit Board of Directors Chairman Bob Clay and Deputy Regional Administrator of the Federal Transit Administration Linda Gehrke are scheduled to speak. Island Transit recently awarded a $17.18 million contract to Everson-based Tiger Construction to build the new facility. Construction is expected to be completed in 2013. Transit officials have been working for years to find funding to expand their current facility. Their efforts paid off when the Federal Transit Authority awarded Island Transit $17.92 million through the “State of Good Repair Program.”

Letters Victims give statement To the editor: Regarding: Washington State vs. Kaylea Souza, excerpts from our statement made March 30 in Island County Superior Court: We are Bruce and Sharon Knight, Robert Knight’s parents; and we are also representing Robert’s sister and our daughter, Jamie Metcalf. We could easily be consumed with bitterness, anger and resentment but those emotions serve no useful purpose and will most certainly not bring Robert, or Mick, or Mack back to any of us. We need to focus our energies toward grieving, mourning, healing and learning how to live our new lives without Robert. Losing a child is unimaginable and the emotional, mental and physical pain is indescribable. Losing Robert has left us with a massive hole in our lives, hearts and spirits. We hope that with hard work we can get through this tragedy; but we will never be over it. Our lives are forever changed, and for now, we take refuge in support groups, grief therapists, prescribed medications, bereavement books and hold on tightly to each other. This has been a devastating tragedy for all four of the young people and their families and loved ones. We do not wish to cause more pain for Kaylea and her family. We know all four of them had a choice to make on the night of Nov. 11, 2011. Kaylea’s choice will cost her a few years in prison, and no doubt a great deal of anguish for an indefinite length of time. The choice Robert, Mick and Mack made to get in the car with her that night cost them their lives. When a person gets behind the wheel of a car, they are assuming responsibility for themselves, their passengers and other drivers on the road. We are very concerned that the lack of consequence for this crime delivers the wrong message to other drivers, especially young ones like Kaylea, Rob, Mack and Mick. It is not OK to drink underage. It is not OK to drive under the influence at any age. It is not OK to play passing games and drive recklessly while driving (even when sober), and it is not OK to accidentally kill someone (or three) in the process. It could have been worse. Instead of hitting a tree, Kaylea could have hit another car head on, full of a family with children, who may have all been killed. While passing her girlfriends’ car they may have also been drawn into the accident and lost their lives. They would not have been able to help pull Kaylea from her car, and she may have also perished. Regardless, this senseless tragedy could have been avoided with respon-

sible and lawful choices. We also understand and appreciate that Kaylea’s “sentence” does not end in 68 months; it will last her a lifetime. We only hope she learns from this catastrophe and uses her experience to positively impact the lives of others as she continues her journey here on earth — a journey which Robert, Mick and Mack cannot, and will not, make. The sentence of 68 months (45 months with good behavior) translates to less than two years for each of our sons’ lives. It hardly seems just, but the judge took it as far as she was allowed. We asked for the maximum sentence, 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, they are already back to their old habits again, thinking it cannot, and will not, happen to them. It has only been 21 weeks since Robert perished. We ask that you consider our perspective and appreciate your understanding of our concerns. Bruce and Sharon Knight Freeland

Letters Tower threat to ecology, tourism To the editor: This letter is in response to Carl Robinson’s letter in response to Clyde Monma. This letter is to correct the misinformation that Carl Robinson continues to spread. Cell service is currently available for AT&T and Verizon customers on the southernmost end of Whidbey. This is a high-tech community; we use our cell phones all the time. That has been one of the major reasons for opposing the cell tower on the Dorothy Cleveland Trail, because new cell service would not really be for Whidbey Island resi-

dents; it already exists here. (Note: The probable range of this proposed cell tower would be three to five miles, so only south of 525 and east of Maxwelton to Paine Field would be covered.) In the last two years since this tower was proposed, there have been several instances of neighboring residents needing 911 service and EMS arriving in minutes. So receiving emergency services here has not been a problem either. I fell and broke my ankle on the Dorothy Cleveland Trail and had no problem using my cell phone to get help. This is not an area without service. When a telecommunications carrier provides space on a three-tier tower, as the one proposed, the emergency services are given the space on the lowest tier, which is

This announcement is neither an offer to sell nor a solicitation of an offer to buy these bonds. The offer is made only by the Official Statement.


PORT OF SOUTH WHIDBEY ISLAND ISLAND COUNTY, WASHINGTON LIMITED TAX GENERAL OBLIGATION BONDS, 2012 The Port of South Whidbey Island, Island County, Washington (the “Port”) is issuing Limited Tax General Obligation Bonds, 2012 (the “Bonds”) to complete the restoration and expansion of the Langley Marina on Whidbey Island. The Bonds will pay tax-free interest semiannually on June 1 and December 1. The Bonds will be issued in minimum denominations of $10,000 or integral multiples of $5,000.

right at tree height, rendering it practically useless. There is no real solid argument for this cell tower providing new services to islanders. Without federal funding, AT&T could not justify the cost of this tower. Since cell and emergency services already exist, it would be a crime to destroy the trees and the environment that this trail provides for Whidbey Islanders and tourists. The Dorothy Cleveland Trail has been reviewed on radio and on international hiking websites. This trail is possibly the most challenging trail on Whidbey Island. It goes from sea level to 420 feet elevation in about three-quarters of a mile. It passes through several ecosystems, has peek-a-boo views, and often times has no sound pollution, only birds and wind. Speaking of birds, ospreys seem to be the only ones adapting to cell towers, and Possession Point is an eagle habitat, as well as a migrating stopping point for many species. A cell tower that would project 40 percent above tree height is a hazard to birds, especially in the fog. The Port of South Whidbey commissioners have underestimated the value of this trail for eco-tourism. Since I hike this trail several times a week, I have often met “mainlanders” on this trail that came over for the day just to hike this trail. However, this trail will not be a very appeal-

ing destination if the summit contains a cell tower. The port’s mission is to enhance the economic well-being of the community, while respecting its unique, rural character and environment. So how does destroying trees and the environment with a cell tower whose services are not needed, while deterring tourists from seeking out the Dorothy Cleveland Trail as a destination fulfill their mission? Finally, Carl Robinson, how dare you compare a telephone pole cell tower on busy Highway 525, and with all the pollution that implies, to a rural residential and park community with no light or sound pollution?

All it is going to take is one accident due to the new arrangement and it is going to hit the proverbial fan more than it already has. Even going slow, someone maneuvering around the delivery truck is going to meet up with someone driving out of the parking lot or much worse —- a delivery person is going to get hit. Things worked so much better for all concerned with the trucks safely in a loading zone. It’s all great to look ahead to the new design, Mr. Kwarsick, but until that new design is in place, this change is obviously ridiculous!

affect the price of gas. What does it take for the public to realize none of the above has anything to do with the price of gas? We live in a capitalist society, which means enterprise is the engine driving progress. Anyone in America can charge whatever they want for a product. The limit is when the consumer will not pay the price. Why not charge $100 for a gallon of gas? Because no one will pay that price. A need for fuel efficient vehicles is known and those involved in the auto industry are scrambling to create a vehicle that will go a mile in a teacup of gas. The petroleum companies producing and selling gasoline know the public will pay the price as long as they can afford it. The really tricky part is how high can the price for gas go before the general public can no longer buy it. Five dollars a gallon is on the horizon and the price of gasoline will never go down to three dollars a gallon again. Is the supply of gas scarce? A recent Associated Press story said there is “an ample supply” of gasoline in the U.S. The only thing that will change this situation will be the invention of a more fuel efficient vehicle, be it electric, gasoline, hydrogen or whatever.

Second Street change ‘ridiculous’ Build a fuel efficient vehicle To the editor: I am writing about the elimination of the loading zone for the delivery trucks on Second Street. First of all, I was always told as an employee by employers that the closer parking spots to a business were for the customers, not the employees. Second of all, it seems to me like there is a definite safety concern here having the delivery trucks blocking

To the editor: The price of a gallon of gasoline has spawned all sorts of rumors, facts, figures and lies. President Obama stated he would try to get a pipeline laid from Canada to the Midwest. He also wants to encourage petroleum exploration off the southeastern seaboard. And he encourages the efforts to create more efficient gasoline engines and electric cars. None of this will

Grange brews up community fun By KATHY REED

April is Grange month

Staff reporter

Beer lovers and those curious about home beer brewing may be interested in the class Deer Lagoon Grange has on tap for 7 p.m. Tuesday, April 10. The class, part of an ongoing “Food Basics” series, will feature John Burks, who will discuss how to make traditional aletype beer at home, using liquid or dry malt extract. Burks will also demonstrate the equipment needed to get started brewing beer at home. The class is open to the public and there is no charge to attend. “The speakers donate their time,” said Food Basics organizer Chris Williams. “They may have a small business or they may just be hoping to find other people who share the same interest in a subject.” Williams started the Food Basics series in 2009, not long after she joined Deer Lagoon Grange. Since then the Grange has hosted classes ranging from bee keeping to fermenting foods and from coupon shopping and canning to foraging for seaweed. “We’ve got the resources to do these classes and things like food preservation are becoming more popular,” Williams said. “It’s sort of a tryout at no cost.” Classes are typically held at the Grange the second and fourth Tuesdays of each month, although they take the summer off. The broad subject range is probably because Williams has a variety of interests. “Most of them I do because I’m having a whim,” she said with a laugh. “I schedule classes about things I find interesting and it seems other people do, too.” “One thing the Grange has always been about is education, and that’s where Chris’ program fits in,” said Ken Schillinger, Master of Deer Lagoon Grange. Class sizes have ranged from just over a dozen to more than 100. While members see some familiar faces in attendance, they usually see a lot of new faces each month. They hope the Food Basics series will help generate interest in the Grange itself. “Fraternal organizations kind of went away for a while, but now they seem to be coming back,” said Chuck Prochaska, Overseer of Deer Lagoon Grange. “People are wanting to reconnect and they’re wanting to learn things.”

Home brewing beer, 7 p.m. Tuesday, April 10 at Deer Lagoon Grange Hall, Bayview Road. Call 321-4027 for information. Deer Lagoon Grange meets the first Tuesday of the month at 7 p.m. and every third Tuesday at 6:30 p.m. Go to www.deerlagoon for information and an application for membership.

A sign along the road tells area residents what classes are on tap for Deer Lagoon Grange’s Food Basics series. The next class will be held at 7 p.m. Tuesday, April 10 and will be about brewing beer at home. Like nearly every organization, members have a vision of what they’d eventually like to see. “We had plans drawn up for what it could be,” Prochaska said, showing off plans that include additional space off the wing where the kitchen is located. “In my vision, I’d like to someday see a deck and a stairway down to give us easier access to the lower level.”

As Deer Lagoon Grange members work on ways to earn money for the building repair project, they also have reason to celebrate. Just in time for Grange month in April, members learned Deer Lagoon was named a Distinguished Grange for 2010-2011. The award is one of just 16 handed out from among 1,000 Granges in 35 states across the nation. The award is based on a Grange’s activity in the community, membership growth and support of Grange programs. The Washington State Grange has a long history of involvement with legislative issues, including the top-two primary system, but the group is non-partisan. “We have Democrats, Republicans, Independents and others,” Prochaska said. “We do talk about things of legislative interest, but we are non-partisan and we take a pledge that we won’t ever wrong another member.” Deer Lagoon Grange has been very active in the community for all of its 85 years, according to Prochaska and Schillinger. The Grange supports the Island County Fair and provides supervisors and stewards each year in categories like baking, honey, grains, fruits and vegetables and composting. “Our food program is great, as is our Words for Thirds program,” Schillinger said, explaining that Words for Thirds gets dictionaries in the hands of third grade students in the area. Deer Lagoon Grange also has free Wi-Fi and provides computer access by appointment. The annual Critter Workshop is also popular with South Whidbey children and adults and is held just before the fair as a way to introduce people to food production, preparation and preservation. Grange members are also working with South Whidbey High School in Langley to try to reestablish the National FFA Organization program there. That’s a lot, considering membership in Deer Lagoon Grange stands at 46. Current members encourage anyone interested to check out the organization. Requirements for membership are simple — you must be at least 13 and a half years old, be an upstanding, law-abiding citizen, and be willing to get involved. “Sometimes I guess it might seem silly that we host these free events like the food program,” said Prochaska. “But we’re community-minded. When you give, good things happen.”

William “Bill” Edward Maesner, Jr., was born in Tacoma, Washington on Feb. 22, 1937 to William and Winifred Maesner and passed away on March 26, 2012 in Seattle, Washington. He was raised in Satsop where he attended a one room school and in Shelton on a dairy farm where he learned the work ethic that would be a guiding characteristic throughout his life. After graduating from Irene S. Reed High School in 1955, he proudly served in the United States Navy and then began his career in the aerospace industry, working first at Boeing, then Pacific Electro Dynamics and finally Eldec. He began his career as an electronics technician before discovering his special talent as a salesman. While he enjoyed sales, his real gratification came from building and remodeling, which he pursued whole heartedly in retirement. He also built or remodeled every house his family ever lived in. His love of the outdoors guided how he enjoyed his leisure time, boating in the San Juans and Desolation Sound, fishing in Yakutat and hunting, fishing and snowmobiling in Winthrop. The family who he loved and who loved him so dearly would like to thank everyone connected with the

University of Washington Lung Transplant program for giving Bill the gift of the last five years of his life. He was able to continue fishing and hunting (every one of those years), go on many great trips, celebrate 50 years of marriage and enjoy life on Whidbey Island. Bill became a fixture at Freeland Park with his twice daily walks with Buddy who insisted they go because he knew that his special friends awaited him with lots of treats! Bill is survived by his wife, Jean, daughter Cindy, sons Mike (Dawn), Jim (Jennifer), his brother Bob and sister Karen and nine grandchildren, Brian, Erica, Dakota, Elijah, Justin, Mathew, Luke, Kaitlynn and Wyatt. We and all of his family and friends will miss him. In lieu of flowers, the family suggests that memorial contributions be made to: Coalition for Pulmonary Fibrosis, 10866 W Washington Blvd #343, Culver City, CA 90232 or the Lung Transplant Program Training and Education Fund (LUNGTR) at the University of Washington. We are going to celebrate Bill’s life with a reception on Saturday, April 14 from 1 to 4 p.m. at Fireseed Catering, 6051 Coles Rd, Langley, Washington. Bill will be laid to rest in many of his favorite places with private inurnment at Tahoma National Cemetery at a later date. Arrangements are being handled by Visser Funeral Home in Langley, Washington.

OBITUARY Gary Gene Guinn aka “Mr. Guinn”

A Washington native, Gary Gene Guinn, was born Feb. 17, 1945, at Virginia Mason Hospital in Seattle and passed peacefully on March 29, 2012 at BaileyBoushay House in Seattle. Gary’s childhood was primarily spent living in the Seattle area, but he also lived in Alaska (when it was a territory) and Hawaii (just after statehood). He graduated from Franklin High School (Seattle) in 1963. Gary graduated from Central Washington State College (now CWU) where he was involved in many campus activities. He earned his Master’s in Education in 1970. Mr. Guinn’s teaching career started at Langley High School on Whidbey Island in 1967. He taught at Issaquah High School for the 1969-1970 school year, and then returned to Langley and taught Business Education until 1977. Gary continued his teaching career and taught at Skagit Valley College in Mount Vernon from 19772010. He taught Accounting at Edmonds Community College 2004-2005. Gary was honored by the Washington Society of Certified Public Accountants as the 1996-1997 Outstanding Community/ Technical College Educator. He also received the Puget Sound Energy Excellence in Teaching Award at Skagit Valley College in 2001. In addition to his teaching career, he passed the CPA exam in 1989 and was an active member of the Washington Society of CPAs, serving on its Board of Directors 2003-2005. A roller coaster enthusiast, Gary was an active member of the American Coaster Enthusiasts. He traveled throughout the U.S. and England riding coasters. His favorites were Millennium Force at Cedar Point, Tremors at Silverwood, Expedition Everest at Walt Disney World, and California Screamin’ at Disneyland. Gary loved to travel and spent time in Europe (especially England), the Caribbean,

quickly, they discovered he’s not your average rabbit. Floppy is an escape artist and continually broke out of his indoor cage, which his family now refers to as his “apartment.” He was full of curiosity and would examine everything in the house, as well as follow people around. Sheldon noticed that he seemed to go to the bathroom in a certain corner, so she placed a kitty litter box there — minus the litter. And it worked. “He potty trained himself,” she said. So Floppy left his cage for good and now roams around the house freely, much like a dog. Also like a dog, Floppy loves to play with balls. Sheldon said she inadvertently discovered Floppy playing with a large, plastic children’s ball and bought him some of his own. He now has a half dozen balls that he playfully pushes around the living room with his nose. Sheldon said she also

found that the bunny is pushy, in his own quiet way. Floppy is curious about visitors and even greets them at the door, along with the little dog Bee Tee. The rabbit loves a good petting and even falls asleep while being stroked. Sheldon tells a story about a visitor who came to the house and refused to acknowledge Floppy, at his own peril. She even warned the man, who was talking to her, that he should pet the rabbit at his feet. When he didn’t, Floppy bit him. “He doesn’t like to be ignored,” she said. Bee Tee, the terrier, used to fight with the rabbit and is clearly jealous of all the attention the long-eared fellow gets. Sheldon said one day Floppy got tired of the dog fights and let Bee Tee have it. The result was six stitches across the pooch’s stomach. “Now they maintain a respectful distance,” she said, but adds that the dog and bunny sit together nicely on car rides. Floppy has taught other dogs and cats lessons. He runs straight at them and the other animals will get freaked out and run away.

Jessie Stensland/The Record

Floppy, a Holland lop bunny, pushes a ball around with his nose in the living room of his home in Freeland. Floppy recently went missing overnight. He was found the next day, and owner Natasha Sheldon speculates he may have been helping out his friend, the Easter Bunny.

The rabbit has also learned to beg for food and enjoys a nice bath in the sink. On one particularly sunny day, Sheldon placed Floppy outside in his cage, but then forgot about him. By the time she remembered, he had escaped and was nowhere to be seen. She figured the defenseless bunny was gone forever. When she tried to break the sad news to

her daughter, she wouldn’t believe it. Finally Sasha pointed at the glass door, where Floppy was standing on his hind legs and pawing the glass to get in. Since then, Sheldon periodically lets Floppy outside when the weather is nice. People in the neighborhood have gotten used to seeing the floppy-eared critter in their yards. Floppy hops

helping the Easter bunny fill Easter baskets. Sheldon searched around and became emotional seeing his favorite toys left behind. She started making plans to put up “wanted posters.” But then the little miracle happened, just in time for Easter. A neighbor on the other side of busy East Harbor Road spotted him and called Sheldon. Licketysplit, she went over to the house and found him in the backyard. He was wet and dirty, she said, and “looked like a plush toy forgotten by children.” He was more than happy to let her pick him up and take him home. In honor of her “little character,” Sheldon wrote a story about his adventures. “Even though he gives us so much trouble: chases our dogs Bee Tee and Jake, chews up shoes, accidentally leaves a few droppings behind, we love him deeply!” she wrote at the end of the story. “Every day I am looking forward to seeing and taking care of him just for the ‘ahh’ moment. And hopefully I have many joyful years of being his friend.”

Short-staffed Falcon boys soccer stalled by Red Wolves BY BEN WATANABE Staff reporter

DUVALL — Cedarcrest had too many quality possessions and pressured South Whidbey’s defense too often for the short-staffed Falcons to hold off the Red Wolves in a 1-0 loss Tuesday night. “We’re on spring break, I’m missing three starters and I think it showed today,” said Falcon head coach Joel Gerlach. “We knew Cedarcrest was going to be tough. The adjustments we’ve had to make, we’re playing guys at positions they’re not normally used to playing.” The Red Wolves attempted more than 15 shots on the patched together Falcon defense. They only needed one, however, as the Red Wolves midfielders controlled their home turf. They surrounded the Falcons (3-2 Cascade Conference, 4-2 overall) anytime a ball came near and contained the Falcons’ leading scorer Noah Moeller. “We put pressure on them, but I don’t think we created great chances,” said Red Wolves head coach Zack Pittis. “They did a good job of bending but not breaking. We just weren’t able to penetrate that final 25, 30 yards.” South Whidbey was playing without three starters, including senior goalkeeper Garret Thomson, while the school was on spring break. In

Falcon sophomore forward James Young fights through Red Wolves sophomore forward Damian Pendergraft as Falcon sophomore defender Calvin Shimada positions himself for the loose ball. Thomson’s place, junior Andrew Holt protected the net and held the Red Wolves, a squad filled with fast, effective passers, to a scoreless first half. “I was extremely nervous,” Holt

said. “I was pretty much shaking the entire first half.” The Red Wolves (3-2 Cascade Conference, 3-3 overall) controlled the ball much of the opening half. Through the first 40 minutes, they

had 11 shots on goal. Holt saved nine of the goal attempts, including a dive to stop Red Wolf junior mid Conner Viger’s roller from the left corner of the goalie’s box. “Man of the match right there. It

could have easily been three, four to nothing,” Gerlach said of Holt. “Considering he’s one of my starting right mids, I thought he played fantastic today.” South Whidbey took three shots in the first half. The first was by junior forward Stephen Lyons, which missed the right post from 15 yards out. Cedarcrest’s defense swarmed the ball, collapsing on the Falcon dribblers and forcing long, ambling kicks or turnovers. “They just controlled the ball in the middle and pretty much just played keep away with us,” said Moeller, a senior forward. “They’ve always had a good touch. They just worked the giveand-gos all day.” Finally, in the 45th minute, the Red Wolves got the ball by Holt. At 6 feet, 4 inches, Holt was able to lunge, jump and extend his arms and legs to cover much of the net. The most difficult shot for him to stop was one of the simpler kicks — a grounder. Red Wolf sophomore forward Darian Pendergraft booted in the roller from within the 15-yard marker Holt lunged to his right. “I’m pretty tall, so the hardest shot for me is down (to the ground),” Holt said. “That was really tough for me.” It had been almost three years since Holt had been the last line See Stalled, A13

French finishes third at track and field meet in Yakima BY BEN WATANABE Staff reporter

Nick French had his worst javelin throw of the year, and he still took third place at the Don Holder Relays on March 31. The South Whidbey track and field team traveled with a skeleton crew of its 40 athletes. About 25 Falcons competed at the track and field meet in Yakima, and seven finished in the top 10. “A lot of kids were gone on spring break stuff,” said Falcon track and field head coach Doug Fulton. “It was a fun trip. All of the kids performed real well.” None placed higher than French, a sophomore javelin thrower. His mark of 165 feet put him at third place, only two days after he set his personal best (and the best mark among 2A javelin throwers by almost 10 feet) at a Cascade Conference meet at Sultan High School. French had

been on a streak of improving his best throw by several feet with each meet before the Holder Relays, from 169 feet to 175 to 178. “You’re not going to PR (hit a personal record) every week,” Fulton said. “Conditions weren’t ideal. It was cold and damp on and off.” “He’s been real consistent. That’s a good, solid throw.” Fellow javelin thrower Colton Justus, a senior, also had one of his season’s shortest throws at 110 feet, 3 inches, which was about 12 feet shy of his best throws. The javelin’s best mark came from Heritage senior Sean Keller at 222 feet, 8 inches. South Whidbey’s nextbest finish was in the girls 100-meter hurdles, which freshman Camlin GeroNorthup took seventh place in the underclassmen finals. Gero-Northup ran her best time in the hurdles in 20.48 seconds. Fellow fresh-

man Samantha Baldwin claimed eighth place in the long jump at 10 feet, 9 inches. In the mile, freshman Emma Lungren finished in 10th place with her best time of 6:21, a two-second improvement on her previous best mark. Her fellow distance runner Lillianna Stelling, a junior, finished in 10th place in the mile with her season’s best time of 5:38.26. The distance runners did well for the boys team as well. Freshman Cole Zink ran the 800-meter race for the first time this year in 2:11.04. He finished about 10 seconds shy of the first-place winner for ninth place in the underclassmen race. “It was a good run. He went out against some tall kids who went out fast, so he went out fast,” Fulton said. His brother Will Zink, a See Yakima, A13

Saturday, April 7, 2012 • The South Whidbey Record



SW softball felled by Cedarcrest The South Whidbey softball team lost 7-3 to Cedarcrest on Wednesday. The Falcons dropped the Cascade Conference game with their ace pitcher, junior Alex Kubeska, on the mound. Falcon junior outfielder Ellie Greene led her team with a triple and an RBI, but couldn’t combat the offense by the Red Wolves. South Whidbey has had an up-and-down season offensively, scoring 9, 10, 14, 4, 13 and 3 runs against conference opponents this season. The Falcons rescheduled their game against the Coupeville Wolves for a doubleheader at South Whidbey High School on Friday, April 20.

Crabs sluggers claim quick win The Whidbey Crabs won a rain-shortened game against the Terrace Twins 14-2 to stay undefeated at 3-0. The game was stopped in the sixth inning on Wednesday with the Crabs batting. If a team has a 10-run advantage after the fourth inning, a game may be called by the umpires. The Pony League baseball squad started the game by hitting through the lineup. Peter Jacobs led off with a home run, which was followed by Connor Antich’s triple, Ricky Muzzy’s single and Kohl Hunter’s double to right field. Terrace’s pitching struggled to put away Whidbey’s batters and allowed 20 base hits. Leading the parade was Hunter with four • Page A13

hits, Josiah Sergeant and Houston Schmutz each had three, Muzzy, Jacobs and Jordan Henriot added two hits apiece. Schmutz pitched the opening two innings and was relieved by Jacobs and Hayden Brymer. The Whidbey Crabs return to play April 11 in Mountlake Terrace to face the Bothell team. Whidbey’s next home game is a doubleheader at noon April 15 at the South Whidbey Parks & Recreation field at Community Park against the North Seattle team.

Falcons score, not enough vs. Tigers South Whidbey started hitting, and scoring, again Wednesday against Granite Falls. Still, four runs weren’t enough for the Falcon baseball team to overcome the Tigers in a 5-4 loss at Granite Falls High School. The Falcons were led by junior Jack Lewis who hit three singles and was three-for-four at the plate. Cameron Wildes, a Falcon senior, pitched a complete game in the loss.

of defense in a competitive soccer match. His rotation from the midfield to the goal box affected other positions, such as junior midfielder Connor McCauley’s move to the defense. South Whidbey played with only two substitutes, and around the 60th minute sophomore defender Calvin Shimada was sidelined after injuring his ankle. The depleted personnel forced most of the Falcons to play the entire 80 minutes. “At the end of the game, I could tell it was affecting us a lot that we didn’t have those extra subs or those fresh legs,” Holt said. “You could just see it out there that people weren’t going as hard as they could.” South Whidbey attempted to play the ball on the sides instead of in the middle in the second half. It was to little avail as the Red Wolves continued to swarm the ball and force quick decisions by the Falcons. “That was a very good team,” Gerlach said. “They were really disciplined and they have a lot of high skill players.” The loss Tuesday was the second in a row for the Falcons, who before March 30 were undefeated and scored 12 goals in conference matches. Against Coupeville in the prior game,


senior, competed in the 2,000-meter steeplechase and finished in ninth place in 7:09. The Falcons were without their best thrower on the girls team, Angelina Berger. The junior is among the top four in 2A in the shot put, discus and javelin. The Don Holder Relays are formatted differently from a full track meet. The emphasis on relay points is based on a school’s top three placers’ times or distances being combined for its overall measure, then compared to other schools. In most events, South Whidbey did

Falcon sophomore defender Calvin Shimada leaps to block Red Wolf junior midfielder Ryan Gifford’s shot on Falcon junior goalkeeper Andrew Holt on April 3.

“We’ve just got to come back hard. It’s really tough on spring break not having some people.” South Whidbey hosted second-place King’s (4-1 Cascade Conference, 4-3 overall) on Friday. The week following pits South Whidbey against the league’s first place and only undefeated squad in Archbishop Murphy (5-0 Cascade Conference, 6-0 overall) in the first of three games in five days.

South Whidbey lost 1-0 in a shootout that was decided by a missed seventh kick. The second loss in a row had some of the Falcons worried as the schedule approaches the mid-season. “To be honest, I’m worried. This was our make-or-break point,” Holt said. “We were on a roll after Lakewood, and then after Coupeville we’re like, ‘Well we can still do it.’ This was an important game.”

not have enough athletes to count as a relay. Also, freshmen and sophomores competed in a different division from juniors and seniors. “It’s kind of a developmental meet to some degree,” Fulton said. “It gives the kids a chance to compete against kids in their own age groups.” South Whidbey left the high school at 5 a.m. for the meet. The Falcons did not compete in any of the event’s namesake relay races. “We were missing too many kids. We thought about running a distance medley, but we didn’t,” Fulton said. Falcon athletes were given individualized workout suggestions and had spring break off from organized practices.

tickets,” he told Felton. Now there will be no such worries. Otherwise, the mayor stuck to his decision that the traditional loading zone is gone, although Kwarsick said other options are being considered, perhaps for a temporary loading zone. Longer term, the issue will be discussed when Second Street is redesigned between Cascade and Anthes avenues for an upcoming makeover project. At Monday’s council meeting, he mentioned making the sidewalks wider for outdoor restaurant use and the like, an idea Felton agrees is unlikely to provide for a loading zone anywhere.


and $16.9 million in 2009. “There is a very high demand in school districts for these funds,” Dorn said in a release. “The great thing is that these funds not only make students’ lives better in the classroom, they also create well paying jobs across the state. This is truly a winning combination.” South Whidbey had high hopes it would receive the funds. The main criteria the OSPI was looking for was first-time applicants, for which the school district qualified. Members of the South Whidbey School Board hoped cutting operational costs would translate to saving teaching jobs. The school district has projected 70 fewer students, which could mean at least two fewer teachers. The hope of the district’s leaders is that by spending capital funds to

Felton said Kwarsick understands his concerns, but simply wants more parking. The decision makes approximately 10 spaces available for parking between 7 a.m. and 1 p.m. Before that, it was a designated loading zone during those hours. Felton said he has no intention of trying to overturn Kwarsick’s decision. “I’m just going to go with the flow and encourage drivers to get here as early as possible,” he said. As Kwarsick sees it, he wanted more public parking on Second Street and he achieved his goal, although he now wishes he had talked to more merchants beforehand. “Intention is the mother of necessity,” he said. “But process is not my strong point.” reduce operations expenses, those savings can be applied to keep a teacher or two employed. “We need to start turning capital money into operation money as soon as we can,” said Board Member Fred O’Neal during the March 7 school board meeting. Among the various projects the school district will undertake to improve its energy costs are new light bulbs and new heating systems. One noticeable example will come in the fall during volleyball season when the old, cone-shaped lights are replaced with fluorescent tubes to brighten the gym. Heating controls will also be replaced at the school for an estimated $286,000, and a new heat pump will be installed in the gym for about $143,000. Langley Middle School is in line for almost $100,000 worth of upgrades to its lighting across the campus, as well as to its boiler controls and locker room heat exchange system.

Marathon regains iconic bridge use This year participants in the Whidbey Island Marathon on April 15 will again enjoy the thrill of running across the scenic and historic Deception Pass Bridge at the start of the popular event. For its first couple of years, the marathon was allowed to use the bridge, but then authorities made it off limits. This is the first time the bridge will be included in the route since the city of Oak Harbor purchased the marathon several years ago as a way to increase tourism to the island. However, motorists may not be so happy: It means the bridge will be briefly closed the morning of April 15.

The marathon takes runners and walkers on rolling, country back roads and breathtaking waterfront coastlines. The Whidbey Island Marathon was named in the “Top 10 Places To Run A Marathon” as reported in Lonely Planet’s Best in Travel 2010. This year the 5K Fun Run/Walk is Saturday, April 14, while the marathon and half marathons are Sunday, April 15. Registrations and more information about the marathon can be found at City Hall in Oak Harbor or online at www.whidbeyislandmarathon. com.
