Welcome to the new Whidbey Island Fair County fair restructured BY JIM LARSEN Record editor

What’s the Whidbey Island Fair? That will be the question on many people’s minds Saturday when the Whidbey Island Fair float makes its debut in the Holland Happening Parade in Oak Harbor. The answer is that it’s the same old Island County Fair, the annual agricultural fair in Langley, but with a new form of management and different relationship with the state and county. Sandey Brandon has been the hands-on fair manager for several years but now has the title of treasurer of the Whidbey Island Fair Association as well as fair administrator.

As the 2012 bumper sticker shows, the Island County Fair is now known as the Whidbey Island Area Fair. The change is meant to streamline operations and allow participation from outside the county. The traditional Fair Board, which governed the fair for many years dissolved itself March 12, leaving operations entirely to a newly reconstituted Fair Association with four officers and four directors. Meanwhile, Island County will

still own the fair property, but will no longer be involved in day-to-day fair finances. “Autonomy,” Brandon said when asked what’s the main benefit of the change. “We can pay our own bills, and on time. Who wants to wait

45 days to be paid?” Previously, vouchers had to be submitted to the county and approved by the commissioners, a process Brandon said was time consuming, making contractors unhappy. Now, as treasurer, she can

pay the bills once approved by the executive committee and contracts can be signed. The last Fair Board chairperson See Fair, A6

Whidbey Telecom’s email nightmare finally resolved By JUSTIN BURNETT Staff reporter

A Whidbey Telecom technician works on computer equipment Thursday to help fix an email problem that affected thousands of customers for nearly a week.

An email nightmare that lasted nearly a week and affected up to 7,000 customers has finally come to an end, according to Whidbey Telecom officials. On Friday, the South Whidbey-based telephone, internet and email provider announced that people may still be receiving a few old emails but that the new system is operating as designed and that customers should have full access to their accounts. “I deeply, deeply regret the terrible effect this has had on our customers,” said co-CEO George Henny, who on Thursday returned from a trip to South Korea. “We’re just sick about it,” he said. Late last Friday, April 20, the company launched a planned update to its old email system. Officials had been working with the service provider’s Philadelphiabased vendor for months in preparation for the changeover and had been banking on a quick two-day transition. However, minor glitches identified over the weekend snowballed into four days of major service interruptions and pulling-your-hair-out frustration for thousands of customers as they struggled with slow or no connection to their email accounts. It was particularly hard on merchants and business owners. Dan Vorhis, owner of Muscle and Arm Farm

in Freeland, relies on email to make a living. From receiving days-old orders to the uncertainty of what never came in, the situation was not only frustrating but downright bad for business. “If people can’t communicate with me, that’s a problem,” said Vorhis, in an interview Wednesday. “One day is bad, two days is terrible, three days is unheard of, and here we are in day four and five.” Drew Kampion, the distributor of an email list with about 3,350 South Whidbey subscribers, 1,200 of whom are Whidbey Telecom users, also saw severe service disruptions. While he was able to publish several email batches over the weekend, he had to cancel all those scheduled for Tuesday and some for Wednesday morning. Email service was down for much of Thursday as well. “It’s really slowed me down,” Kampion said. However, for a man who’s personal motto is, “Life is a wave. Your attitude is your surfboard,” Kampion took the problems in stride. “I got a day off so there was a silver lining to this,” Kampion said. In a Friday morning interview, Whidbey Telecom COO Bruce Russell sat down with the Record to See email, A9

Applegate to solo with orchestra As winner of the Everett Youth Symphony Orchestras’ Concerto Competition, Clinton violinist Tera Applegate, 14, will perform the Mendelssohn “Violin Concerto in E minor” with the Everett Youth Orchestra for its last concert of the season on Tuesday, May 15. “I’m excited to have the opportunity to solo the Mendelssohn,” the 8thgrade violinist said. “It’s been my favorite piece for many years.” The concert will feature performances by each of the four EYSO orchestras. Applegate will play her solo with the Youth Orchestra, and then join the orchestra as concertmaster in the final performances of the evening, including selections from Prokofieff’s‚ “Romeo and Juliet,” Stravinsky’s “The Firebird Suite” and Beethoven’s “Symphony No. 9.” Applegate had her solo debut at the age of 10 with

the Saratoga Chamber Orchestra after winning the Saratoga Young Artists Concerto Competition in 2008. She played Mozart’s “Concerto in G major” with the same orchestra again in 2010. Last May, she soloed Vivaldi’s “Summer” with the Everett Junior Orchestra. Applegate has placed or received honorable mention in the Simon-Fiset, Port Gardener Bay and Sanford Wright Chamber Music Competitions in multiple years and has been a member of the Everett Youth Symphony Orchestras for six years. She studies violin with Simon James, assistant concertmaster of the Seattle Symphony. In addition to her musical talents, Applegate is an accomplished athlete, having twice won the all-around silver medal in the Washington State Gymnastics Championships. She is currently on the volleyball and track teams at Langley Middle School. The EYSO concert will be at 6:30 p.m. Tuesday, May 15 at Northshore Christian

Students explore at science fair Science Day at South Whidey Elementary School was a big hit with students recently. There were 22 science presentations, each set up as a station in the school’s classrooms. Students toured the displays, which included a collection of bones of whales and alligators. Included in the lessons were emergency medical technicians from Whidbey General Hospital who taught students the CPR procedure. Also, students from Bill Patterson’s Advanced Placement Biology class at South Whidbey High School ran a station on life sciences. Organizers said the emphasis was on interactive, hands-on experiences for the kindergarten through fifth-grade students.

Bayview School move to Primary Campus approved by board BY BEN WATANABE Staff reporter

LANGLEY — The Bayview School won’t be at Bayview School next year. South Whidbey’s alternative learning program will soon pack up and move from its long-held spot on Bayview Road to the school district’s hub on Maxwelton Road. The South Whidbey School Board approved the proposal by District Superintendent Jo Moccia and David Pfeiffer, the Bayview School’s director, at the board’s business meeting Wednesday night. “The location of the primary school is really the choice we’d like to make,” Moccia said. A proposal was first brought to the board in March. The South Whidbey School District is projected to decrease in enrollment to 1,150 students next year, about 70 fewer than currently enrolled. To counter both shrinking student populations and school budgets, the superintendent has looked for ways to keep teachers employed by reducing some operational and maintenance

The alternative high school program will leave the historic Bayview School building on Bayview Road next school year. The South Whidbey Primary Campus will house both of the South Whidbey School District’s non-traditional programs, the other being Whidbey Island Academy for homeschool students. costs. Consolidating Whidbey Island Academy for homeschool students with Bayview to one location at the South Whidbey Primary Campus, may accomplish that goal. “We’re hoping for an enrollment increase,” Moccia said. There was hesitation by one board member to fully endorse the decision. Damian

Greene, in his first year on the school board, questioned the procedure of moving a school, and whether it was the same as closing it. The short answer: No. “When you close a school, it’s no longer registered with OSPI (Washington State Office of the Superintendent of Public Instruction),” said

Dan Poolman, business director. South Whidbey’s school superintendent also addressed Greene’s procedural concerns. “It’s been a 90-day period, you’ve already had one meeting for it,” Moccia said. “Thankfully the Record had plenty of coverage on it and

did a poll about it and twothirds of people were for it.” The Bayview School building was donated to the school district, but will only remain in its possession if used for educational purposes. South Whidbey’s high school alternative learning courses have been housed in the historic, turn of the century style schoolhouse since 1995. There are plans to continue to use the old white structure for education, though they were not laid out at the board meeting. “Bayview’s going to be used for educational purposes,” Moccia said. Bayview’s small staff and faculty of about 10 people had begun to strategize for the move, Moccia told the board. The Bayview School faculty was also working on a new name (The South Whidbey Academy) and a new logo which may or may not be adopted by the district. “It shows me there’s a lot of excitement about relocating our K-12 alternative learning options,” Moccia said. “More important than the logistics, and they are important, is the programmatic

piece.” The new school would be split into three programs along the lines of a traditional system. The Explorer Program would house grades kindergarten to fifth, the Discovery Program would have sixth to eighth grades, and the Pathways Program would have ninth to 12th grades. All that remains before the move begins are permits, which Moccia needed the board’s approval to seek. Once she had the board’s unanimous 4-0 vote (Chairman Steve Scoles was absent), Moccia said the relocation would start as soon as this school year ends. “It’s definitely going to happen in the summer,” she said. There will be an open house at 6 p.m. Thursday, May 17 at Whidbey Island Academy, located at the South Whidbey Primary Campus. Parents and students wanting to know more about the future of alternative learning on South Whidbey are encouraged to attend.

NEWSLINE | WEATHER REPORT: Showers likely Saturday and Sunday; partial clearing Sunday night. Highs in the mid to upper 50s, lows in the mid 40s. CLINTON Short cars get ferry price break For drivers lucky enough to own a Tesla Roadster or a 1990 Nissan Pulsar, the new under 14-feet ferry fare will be great. Otherwise, for the owners of Chevrolet Tahoes, Toyota Corollas and Mercedes-Benz models not in the SLK-class, ferry rates will soon rise again. Various rate increases and peak season have combined to raise multi-ride cards from $122.60 to $126.60, and the standard fare to $9.75. That’s fine for one South Whidbey resident who commutes a couple of times each week

on the Clinton-Mukilteo route. “I don’t plan on getting a shorter car,” said Bill Burnett, who owns a Mercedes-Benz E-class sedan (about 16 feet long). “It’s kind of like everything else. If it were a wellrun program, we’d probably have to pay what it actually costs to go back and forth.” Washington State Ferries also created a new classification for vehicles under 14 feet. It won’t help too many commuters, however. The Department of Transportation released a list of more than 70 cars that qualify for the lower fare, though some of the more popular commuter cars in Washington like the Honda Civic and Toyota Prius hybrid are longer than 14 feet, as are other popular compact

cars such as the Toyota Corolla and Ford Focus. A Geo Metro, Hyundai Accent and Mini Cooper all qualify for the lower small vehicle and driver fare of $102.30 for a multi-ride card and $7.75 one-way ticket. Fares increased in part due to the state’s budget problems. The Transportation Commission approved a 3-percent fare increase to cover operating costs and revenue goals. The transportation budget required Washington State Ferries to meet an overall revenue goal of $310 million from fares between July 1, 2011 and June 30, 2013. The single ticket price also jumped 25 percent because of the peak travel season that begins May 1.

ISLAND COUNTY Input sought on Conservation Futures Island County Commissioner Helen Price Johnson is seeking

feedback from the public about the Conservation Futures Fund. The pot of money is garnered from property taxes and is used to purchase or protect a variety of different types of land in Island County every year. It’s an optional tax authorized by the state. Price Johnson’s request for feedback is in response to Commissioner Kelly Emerson’s recent failed bid to get public input on the futures fund through the use of an advisory vote on the primary election ballot this August. Price Johnson would not support the motion, citing the cost of putting something on the ballot when there is already a public input process and the extra burden of work such a measure would put on the Island County Auditor’s Office. Since she first asked for input last week, the commissioner said that she’s seen “overwhelming support” for the futures fund.

LANGLEY Police door kicker does jail time A 34-year-old man recently arrested in Langley caused more than $1,500 in damages to a city squad car with his feet. According to Police Chief Randy Heston, Kevin Brown was taken into custody March 16 for an outstanding warrant near a home in Edgecliff. Heston said Brown has been arrested by Langley police before and was uncooperative. “As soon as one cuff went on, he started resisting,” Heston said. The two arresting officers struggled with the man and eventually had to sweep his feet to get him under control. However, once in the police car, Brown reportedly laid down in the seat and kicked the door with both feet two or three times. “The door almost came

open, he kicked it so hard,” Heston said. The damage was so severe, the door had to replaced at a cost of $1,529. That includes the cost of graphics. The bill was covered by the city’s insurance company. Neither Brown nor the two officers were injured in the incident. However, Heston said Brown spent more than a month in jail and that he has since been released.

SCHOOLS Kickoff planned for energy upgrades With the funds secured, the South Whidbey School District is planning a kickoff for almost $686,000 of energy improvements. Jo Moccia, the district superintendent, officially reported that South Whidbey had received a grant from the state education office. More than $1 million worth of work will be done to improve heating, lighting and other operational and maintenance features of the district’s facilities. The event is planned for May 3, with more details to be announced later. All of the work is expected to begin by the summer.

Letters Transportation safety

Don’t wait until someone dies To the editor: Today, April 26, my husband, our adult daughter, our little dog and I survived a horrendous near miss auto accident at the intersection of Bush Point Road and Mutiny Bay Road. At around 12:45 p.m., traveling north on Bush Point Road, we encountered a young man driving east on Mutiny Bay Road in a small truck. He was traveling at high speed, apparently never applied the brakes and crossed Bush Point Road at 60 mph or more. As far as we could tell, neither drugs nor alcohol were involved. The visibly shaken young man stopped and admitted fault. Another concerned driver stopped to offer help. But for our daughter’s skillful driving, the incident would have been catastrophic. We and the other driver might well have died there today. My question is this: How many people have to die at the intersection of Bush Point Road and Mutiny Bay Road before our highway department decides that a four-way stop sign is merited? In the 10 years we have lived in Freeland, this is our second close call at that intersection. In each case, the offending vehicle was traveling east on Mutiny Bay Road and failed to stop. Lives will be saved by a four-way stop sign. Please, please don’t wait for one more person to die there.

Goss Lake loses its logs To the editor: The water is high at Goss Lake, and rising water floats logs from the shores and coves out onto the lake and into the public domain. Wind currents push them to the public access. Recently, a group of logs collected at the public access and boat launch. A homeowner adjacent to the public access wanted the logs removed. The call went out for volunteers with chainsaws to come help remove the logs from the public access and cut them up for hauling off site. There was little outcry from within the Goss Lake community (maybe just from myself) and so the deed was done as scheduled on April 20. The location of the logs at the public access was what really sealed their fate. The volunteers wanted the logs out before the start of fishing season. I disagree that their removal was necessary for safe boat launching. Although log presence might have caused

a few moments of inconvenience, people launching boats are normally capable of pushing logs out of the way. Puget Sound waterways were once lined with vegetative masses supported by logs. The Army Corps of Engineers removed all of it in navigable waters long ago, the thinking of the time being that anything floating is junk. Consequently, the role these thousands of floating islands played in the ecosystem is unknown. Goss Lake is a valuable resting spot for hundreds of migrating birds, in addition to hosting several species year-round. Likely, generations of waterfowl used the same logs at Goss Lake year after year. The four logs removed April 20 were some of the largest left on the lake. The old bits of hardware found in some of the largest logs have a negligible effect on the logs’ contribution to habitat enrichment. You would be hard pressed to find four logs remaining on Goss Lake as large as they were. The water continues to rise on Goss Lake,

and a few small logs are now free floating, moving with the wind currents towards the public access, where they will likely be removed. Modern building practices are not contributing any new logs to the lake. Once the logs are gone, they’re gone for good. Janet Johnston Langley

was Leandra Reuble, a Coupeville resident who teaches school in Oak Harbor. She said the consensus was, “We needed to shift gears in running the fair in 2012. There needs to be a clear bureaucracy.” There was always some confusion about the powers and roles of the Fair Board, Fair Association and Island County commissioners. As a 4-H leader, Reuble sees the main benefit as the wider participation allowed in

area fairs, as defined by the state designation. Entries can come from Skagit, Jefferson and San Juan counties, for example. Brandon said other county fairs in the state are changing to area fairs, citing the Jefferson County and Benton/Franklin fairs. She expects “area” to drop out in popular usage, and the former Island County Fair will be known simply as the Whidbey Island Fair, which is what the float will be advertising in Saturday’s parade. “The biggest benefit to me is we can involve people from outer communities to show

their animals,” Reuble said. The number of animals on display at the Island County Fair has been on the decline, in part because dairies and larger farms have faded away, and the cost of raising animals has soared. “This year there are no 4-H rabbits coming to the fair,” said Reuble. “There aren’t any kids that want to show a rabbit at the fair.” Where once the fair had a dairy barn and a beef barn, now there are only a few cows. “We scrounge them up,” Reuble said. “There’s overall downsizing, it reflects the economy.” It’s not all

negative. She said horse entries are “holding their own” and chicken entries are actually up. The Fair Association will lease the fair’s 12.8 acres, all located inside Langley city limits, from Island County. Helen Price Johnson, chair of the board of commissioners, said the agreement has passed the county’s legal scrutiny process. Once the Fair Association approves, the county can follow suit. It could be a done deal as early as May 7, she said. Brandon is hoping for an inconsequential lease amount, perhaps $1. “They

should be paying us to manage the property,” she said. Whatever the final agreement, Price Johnson said the fairgrounds will continue to be a valuable piece of public property. The county sets aside $30,000 annually for fair capital improvements and has about $90,000 in the pipeline for the fair, enough to replace two roofs and install a commercial kitchen with the help of grants from the Washington State Department of Agriculture and U.S. Department of Agriculture. Brandon wants to use some of the money for accessible restrooms.

“We’re making a substantial investment that’s long overdue,” Price Johnson said. Eventually, she would like to see an RV park for tourists when the fair is not in progress. The new Fair Association is headed by four executive officers including Diane Divelbess as president, Terey Kay as vice president, Marilyn Gabelein as secretary and Brandon as treasurer. The four directors are Dan Ollis, Jason Kalk, MariAnn Mansfield and, as 4-H representative, George Lawson. In the previous agreement with Island County, the Fair Board had a geographic component, requiring representatives from all areas of Whidbey Island. That is no longer the case, but Reuble supports the change as there were commonly board vacancies due to lack of interest in Coupeville and Oak Harbor. Price Johnson sees the change as entirely positive, as it will mean less work for county employees and streamline operations while keeping the property in county hands. “I’m supportive of the Fair Association and we’ll work with them to put on a great fair,” Price Johnson said. This year’s Whidbey Island Fair will be Aug. 16 to 19. The fair has a new name, but that’s all people will likely notice. “The fair experience will not change for the fair-goer one iota,” Brandon said.

Local filmmakers need pledges by next week to finish film BY PATRICIA DUFF Island Life Editor

Two award-winning documentary filmmakers from Clinton are in a race against the clock. Mark Dworkin and Melissa Young are in the final phases of completing their latest film, “Shift Change: Putting Democracy to Work.” The film tells the personal stories of employee-owned businesses that compete successfully in today’s economy, while providing secure, dignified jobs in democratic workplaces. But in order to finish the film, they have until 7 a.m. Friday, May 4 to raise the final $7,000 of the $30,000 needed to reach their goal. They’ve managed to make a little more than $23,000 in three weeks, according to the webpage, the online crowd-based funding platform used by a variety of artists for creative projects. “It is a project that has been equally grueling and exhilarating; sobering and uplifting; exhausting and encouraging,” Young said. “I’ve been very impressed by the examples I’ve seen of democratically run enterprises in Mondragon (Spain) and in the U.S. These organizations operate in all sectors — engineering, baking, green house-cleaning, fairtrade food, home health care, pharmacies, cab companies, breweries. They paint a new picture of work creatively and equitably reimagined.” Take a look at the six minute preview they posted online about a month ago, which already has been watched by 15,000 people around the world; Although they are local producers based in Clinton, the project, they said, has both a global and a local relevance this year in what the United Nations has declared the “International Year of the Cooperative.” The film came out of a desire by both Dworkin and Young to tell the story of how well things can work if people are looking out for each other in a way that benefits the entire community. “Mark told me that the wonderful thing he sees in these companies is the similar way things operate in a small community, such as

Bakers at one of the Arizmendi Bakeries near San Francisco work together to get their buns in order. The women appear in “Shift Change,” a documentary film in the process of being made by Clinton filmmakers Mark Dworkin and Melissa Young about the benefits of worker-owned businesses in the United States and elsewhere. The Arizmendi Bakeries are six worker owned and managed bakeries in the Bay Area of California. the one we have on South Whidbey,” Young said. She mentioned the influence of community-minded projects on the people who live in the area such as Friends of Friends Medical Support Fund, Hearts & Hammers, the Watershed Stewards, Good Cheer Food Bank and the Clyde Theatre and how that affects the whole. “One thing we found so interesting and so attractive about these worker cooperatives is that they are looking out for something broader than just individual interests,” Young

said. Why make this film? With the long decline in American manufacturing and today’s economic crisis, millions of people have been thrown out of work, and many have lost or are losing their homes. The usual economic solutions are not working, and people are looking for other ways to create long term community stability, increase employment and rebuild social equity, the filmmakers wrote on the Shift Change website. There is growing interest in firms that are owned and managed by their work-

ers, which tend to be more profitable and innovative, more responsive to the needs of the local community, while providing secure jobs in democratic workplaces. Yet the public has little knowledge of the promise they offer for a better life. “I know that these stories will change the way that many people think,” Young said. The filmmakers focused on workerowned enterprises in North America and in Mondragon, in the Basque region of Spain. See film, A8

Rebecca Katherine “Becky” Moody, DVM, age 41, passed away at her Coupeville home on Friday, April 20, 2012. Becky was born in Lewiston, ID, on November 20, 1970, to Harold and Jennifer (Rudd) Breeden. She attended the University of Idaho and then went on to Washington State University, where she received her Doctorate in Veterinary Medicine. Becky married Robert L. Moody on November 9, 2000, in Moscow, ID. The couple moved to Coupeville in 2002. Becky worked in several veterinary clinics on Whidbey Island and in Mt. Vernon. She enjoyed crocheting, painting and crafts. Becky loved to help stray animals, and this was reflected in her career. Becky is survived by

Raymond (Ray) E. Rogers, Jr. 52 passed way in his sleep at his Greenbank home March 28, 2012. He was born to Raymond and Nancy Rogers on Dec 30, 1959 in Yakima. He grew up and attended school in White Salmon, Wash. Ray served our country for 20 years, joining the US Army in 1978, then transferring to the National Guard, during which time he responded to the Mt. St. Helen’s eruption. He met his wife, Kathryn Tennant, while working for the USFS in Quinault. They were married in Aberdeen May 26, 1984. Ray enjoyed being in the forests of Washington where he worked building and maintaining logging roads. He moved with his wife and sons to Whidbey Island in 1991 to be close to his widowed mother-in-law. He found employment with Island Asphalt and grew to love Whidbey as much as the forests of Washington. Holding the belief that we are all of worth and are connected to each other, Ray

largest worker-owned and managed roaster of fair traded coffee that also imports fair trade chocolate, tea and bananas. “I believe that the visions of success we are presenting in ‘Shift Change’ will mobilize people to seek new possibilities in their own workplaces, businesses, communities and lives,” Young said. These filmmakers are no strangers to socially-conscious filmmaking. Together with the nonprofit production company, Moving Images, these Whidbey Island residents have been helping to promote global justice and environmental protection through their films since the late 1980s. In 2008, Dworkin and Young were honored with three CINE Golden Eagle Awards for “Argentina — Hope in Hard Times,” which documented that country’s response to an economic collapse in 2001. The film covered the social movement that broke out in Argentina during the crisis, taking the viewer through the street protests, worker-controlled factories, barter fairs and the transformation of a Citibank building into a community center. Their most recent film, “We Are Not Ghosts” features people in Detroit who have a new vision for their devastated rust-belt city and are rebuilding from the ground up.

General Dentistry Raymond Rogers, Jr. quietly saw and actively supported the needs of his community, family and friends. Ray is survived by his wife Kathryn Rogers, their children Bradley Rogers and Thomas Rogers, his parents Raymond and Nancy Rogers, his grandmother Mildred McGraw, his sisters Vicki Main and Pam Billette, his brother Doug Rogers, as well as many more beloved in-laws, aunts, uncles, cousins, nephews, and nieces. Ray’s final resting-place is at Sunnyside Cemetery in Coupeville. A celebration of Ray’s life is being held the afternoon of Sunday, June 24 at the Greenbank Progressive Club. A strong, loyal and quiet man, glorious of heart.

Young said they have a realistic view of the variety of changes that need to take place if society is going to be able to sustain itself. They see the message of “Shift Change” as one piece of the pie. “Employee owned and managed enterprises are not the only solution to many of the difficulties we face,” Young said, “but they demonstrate that it is possible to make a difference, and to contribute toward a society with more equality and fairness — a society of which I will be proud to be a part.” Young said she sees their appeal through Kickstarter to help get “Shift Change” made as another part of the cooperative continuum. The filmmakers hope to finish the film this summer. They are enthused by the huge response they’ve received from the preview. Young’s message is direct to potential donors on Kickstarter. “With your help, we’ll finish the project and show that it is possible to have a successful business where employees have a stake and a say,” she said.

explain just what happened. He also apologized to those affected by the email snafu. “We are so sorry that this happened with our customers,” Russell said. “This is certainly not to our standards, it’s not up to our expectations and definitely not to the expectations of our customers.” As expected, there were some service interruptions over the weekend during the initial changeover. But by 9 a.m. Monday, the time the transition was supposed to be complete, it was clear there was a big problem as customers were experiencing a host of issues, from sluggish service to not being able to connect at all. By Tuesday, things worsened as the new system had to be taken offline completely in order to troubleshoot and pinpoint the problem. Company officials believed they had the situation largely under control by Wednesday when it was reported that the new system was “up and stable” though it was laboring under a massive amount of backlogged emails. During a normal business day, Whidbey Telecom processes over 800,000 email


COO Bruce Russell transactions and over 35,000 emails per hour during peak traffic hours. Yet, by Thursday, the company had to take the system offline again because it was still not performing as expected. The move resulted in customers having no email access for much of the day. Technicians would eventually discover a faulty protocol in the new system and that may have been the source of the email fiasco. It was fixed and service was largely restored by early Thursday evening. According to Russell, the company will be closely

examining everything that happened over the past week to see if the faulty protocol was really the root problem or if there were other contributing factors. “This (service loss) was the worst scenario; we never imagined we would be at this state,” Russell said. “This was totally unexpected.” The company will also be looking at what could have been done better, particularly in the communications department. Despite posting numerous daily updates on its website and fielding thousands of calls, the service provider saw hefty criticism from customers who felt uninformed about what was happening. “We’ll definitely be looking at that,” Russell said. While no decisions have been made, the company is considering holding a public forum to gather ideas about what could be done better in the future, though Russell promised the events of this past week would never be repeated. “Rest assured, this will never happen again,” he said. Things got so bad, Russell acknowledged that Whidbey Telecom had begun helping some customers get set up with

its subsidiary FiberCloud. Without a doubt, the company lost customers to other service providers as well, he said. After 104 years of business, both Henny and Russell said Whidbey Telecom has earned a solid reputation and the trust of its customers with years of consistent and reliable service.

OBITUARY Harry Reuben ‘Bud’ Heslet

Born in Topeka, Kan., on Feb. 27, 1920, Harry “Bud” Heslet passed away April 21, 2012. He was the second of five children born to Reuben and Elsie Heslet. He attended Seaman High School in Topeka where he played football, basketball and baseball. In 1938 he was signed by the New York Yankees while still a junior in high school. After graduating high school in 1939, he started a 14-year professional baseball career in 1940. Like so many players of his day, his baseball career was voluntarily interrupted for three years when he enlisted in the Navy to serve in World War II. Heslet would lead the league in home runs in six of those 14 years, culminating with his last and most prolific year in 1956 with the Visalia Cubs of the California League. He was one of the first five players to be inducted into the Visalia, Calif., League, Professional Baseball Hall of Fame in 2011 along with the likes of Kirby Puckett and Vada Pinson. His performance in 1956 is best described in the words on his Hall of Fame monument. It states: In 1956, “Harry “Bud” Heslet posted the greatest offensive season in California League history with Visalia, setting league records with 51 home runs and 172 runs batted in. He also batted .334. His records have not been not been challenged since.” The fact that Heslet retired from baseball after that incredible season was the

Harry Reuben “Bud” Heslet subject of a feature article published by in May of 2008. When asked by the writer why he “simply retired and walked away from the game never to look back,” Heslet replied, “The main reason was I had a boy and I wanted to get him settled. The only way to do that was to give up baseball, stay home and be a dad.” The article went on to say, “Several teams wanted him to manage, but he turned them all down.” Heslet met Lucille, his wife of 49 years, in Los Angeles while serving in the Navy in 1944. They were married that same year. As a ballplayer’s family, the Heslets had lived all over the U.S. and Canada, so they were happy to settle down in Visalia where Bud spent 19 years with the fire department. A heart condition required him to retire from being a fireman, so he became a supervisor for the Training Centers for the Handicapped where he worked until he retired for good in 1990. In 1991, the Heslets moved to Freeland on Whidbey Island to be close to their son’s family that lived outside Seattle. Lucille passed away in 1993, just three months after the birth of their first

Harry Reuben “Bud” Heslet grandchild, Christine. As a widower, when not visiting with family, Heslet spent his time painting or with friends at the Bayview Senior Center and the Senior Center Fun Band. The Langley CMA Church, where he sang in the choir, was also an important part of his life. Heslet was always a big, physically imposing figure, but he was also a very gentle soul who had a contagious smile, loved to make people laugh and was well liked by everyone who knew him. He spent his last days surrounded by his family, at peace with his faith in the next life and ready, as he would say, “to meet his Maker.” He went to reside in his new home in Heaven on the morning of April 21, 2012 at the age of 92. Heslet is survived by his son Joseph, his daughterin-law Linda and his two beloved grandchildren Christine and Michael. He is survived also by his brother Galen of Hemet, Calif., and a host of nieces, nephews and extended family.

Final inning walks drop Falcons against Red Wolves BY BEN WATANABE Staff reporter

LANGLEY — The Falcons needed three outs to secure an upset victory against the top-seeded Cedarcrest Red Wolves. South Whidbey got the outs, just a few walks, a game-changing double and four runs too late. Instead of a 4-1 victory, the South Whidbey fastpitch team lost 5-4 after a seventh-inning rally by Cedarcrest on Monday. The Falcons’ ace pitcher, junior Alex Kubeska, walked three batters and gave up two doubles. The Red Wolves’ center fielder Karly Gidlof hit the second blast with the bases loaded to left-center field that tied the game at 4-4. “She just couldn’t get the ball down,” said Falcon head coach Ashley Lopez of her pitcher. “(Gidlof) came up, she knew what we were doing. She wanted to hit that ball. She knew it was coming.” The inning was difficult to watch unfold for sophomore left fielder Chantel Brown, who was unable to run down Gidlof’s game-changing hit. “It’s tough sometimes. I have confidence in our pitcher to get those outs that she needs, and I have confidence in our infield that they’ll get anything on the ground,

Despite the tying scores, South Whidbey was only one out from silencing the rowdy Red Wolf dugout. Kubeska’s high velocity

pitching, mixed with the wet turf and ball, however, allowed Gidlof to steal third and home on back-toback passed balls for the go-ahead

run. And whereas Madsen earlier was able to retrieve a passed ball quickly enough to throw to Kubeska for a tag out, this pitch got away. “I have to be ready for everything back there,” Madsen said. “It had a nice bounce. I just have to be quick getting back there to get those outs.” With the final at-bats, South Whidbey (5-7 Cascade Conference, 6-7 overall) still had a chance. The top of the Falcons’ lineup was up, led by Brown, the leadoff hitter. She delivered with a shot to the right-center field fence that sailed over Gidlof, though not without a little slip from the batter’s box. “I kind of got stuck leaving home plate because it’s muddy out, and it is tougher to run in the mud,” Brown said. “Once I saw that it was definitely over her head I went a little faster.” As Brown rounded first, she was waved around to head for third. She took a wide turn, hit second base and sprinted toward third base. Gidlof threw to the Red Wolves’ shortstop Taylor Turner. The relay throw to Jerrica Kjorsvik was high, but the field umpire called Brown out on the tag. The See Walks, A11

Home course helps Falcon boys golfers land first conference win BY BEN WATANABE Staff reporter

USELESS BAY — Home advantage made the difference for South Whidbey’s boys golf team Thursday. The Falcons claimed their first Cascade Conference victory with a four stroke edge against the top-seeded Archbishop Murphy Wildcats. “Our boys won,” said Falcon head coach Steve Jones. South Whidbey relied on its familiarity with the greens at Useless Bay Golf

& Country Club to take down the top teams and win its first league meet. “It is so close right now,” Jones said. “Archbishop Murphy is in the lead right now in the league standings. We’re tied with King’s for second.” “The way the course is set up, there’s a lot of out of bounds, it’s generally pretty narrow and there’s a lot of water hazards.” The Falcons were helped by their top two golfers, seniors Harrison Price and Jesse Portillo. Price claimed his fourth conference

the course with a 72 (par), though it wasn’t counted toward the team’s score. The senior was ambivalent about his score and said there were plenty of strokes he’d like to have back. “I just scrapped around to 72. I never felt like I was hitting the ball well or got into a rhythm,” he said. “If I could have gotten the putter on in the middle of the round I could have rattled off six straight birdies.” Portillo was also a state tournament golfer last year and has plans to return in May.

I just kind of found a way to make pars and took advantage of the shorter holes,” Price said. “I didn’t miss any inside 10 feet, so that was a plus. It’s good to be at a point where I can have rounds like that and still shoot a 72.” Putting has been an emphasis for Price this season as he tries to return to the 2A state championships.

Moeller. The senior forward was assisted by senior defender Sam Lee. Falcon senior midfielder Jimmy Price got a goal on an assist from Cameron Coupe. And junior mid Darby Hayes scored with an assist from Connor McCauley. The Falcons were defended by reserve junior goalie Andrew Holt, who replaced starting keeper Garret Thomson after a knee

injury Monday against Cedarcrest. South Whidbey (8-5 Cascade Conference, 9-5 overall) had one regular season match left against the conferenceleading Archbishop Murphy squad on Friday.

Falcon coaches argued against the call, and Lopez asked the home plate ump to reconsider who had the better angle. The decision was not changed. “By the time I saw it in, (Brown) was looking at me and I knew she was going to three. She’s one of our quickest players. Unfortunately, we just didn’t get the call,” Lopez said. “That really switched it up for our game’s situation. We would have had our quickest runner on third base, top of our lineup. We had a game plan, it just completely changed the game.” Cedarcrest (9-1 Cascade Conference, 9-1 overall) was able to finish South Whidbey with two more plays by Turner — a groundout and a pop fly. It was a letdown loss for the Falcons who had not trailed since the first inning. South Whidbey tied the game in the bottom of the first on a single to right field by sophomore first baseman Mackenzie Hezel that scored Brown. After that, the game went silent save for a few near-rallies by the Red Wolves, who stranded eight runners

until the final inning. The Falcons caught a strong wind of change in the fourth inning. Hezel pulled a single between third base and the shortstop. Kubeska shot a single up the middle. With senior third baseman Zoey Maeser at bat, Hezel and Kubeska stole on a wild pitch, putting both in scoring position.

fielder Ellie Greene scored Kubeska on a sacrifice fly to deep center field for a 3-1 advantage. Kubeska was brilliant from there. She struck out three batters and forced three ground outs in the fifth and sixth innings. “Defensively, for our all-in-all game, it was the best defense we’ve seen from our team by far,” Lopez said. “She’s got a lot of velocity, we just have to reel in the horse.” South Whidbey secured some insurance runs (which the team calls “Aflac”) in the fifth. Greene scored Kubeska from second base on a single up the middle and reached second base on the throw to home plate. The loss had little affect on South Whidbey’s playoff position.

“It feels really good. I was really hoping for that. That was a big goal of mine,” Portillo said. The senior scored 61 and was a bit disappointed after shooting 37 through the front nine holes. Coming off a rough outing at the Port Ludlow Invitational earlier in the week, Portillo said he was comfortable with his play. “I was keeping the ball inbounds and pretty straight down the fairways. I was making pars and wasn’t making stupid shots,” he said. “I’m at a point where I’m right there, I’m competing. And I think I’m at a level where I can do that and I can accomplish that goal (the state tourney).” Teams were unable to finish the entire round before dusk set in, and only the first 14 holes were counted. South Whidbey’s coach was pleasantly surprised by Derrick Riley’s score of 67 strokes. Riley was slotted as the Falcons’ fifth golfer and ended up with the thirdbest score on the team. “Derrick Riley really played well today. He had a fantastic round,” Jones said. “He’s managing his

Over time, this condition could compromise the structural integrity of the building. Acting now will minimize the cost of repair and help launch the building into its next hundred years of service to the community. Call 222-3110 for more information.
