Council passes mayor’s actions to prosecutor BY JUSTIN BURNETT

High voltage, low mileage

Volt lover revolted by publicity BY JIM LARSEN Record editor

With a Ph.D in physics and a long career with a Detroit auto supply business behind him, Norm Bodine of Clinton knows his cars. And he’s revolted that a futuristic car he purchased new last fall came with a questionable reputation after a faulty report on FOX News and various other media outlets. In response, Bodine wrote to the FOX reporter who made the misinformed report as well as its popular commentator Bill O’Reilly, complaining about the erroneous “facts” regarding a fire and the Volt’s mileage. He didn’t get a response, so instead set out on a one-man crusade to sing the praises of the Chevrolet Volt. The Volt isn’t an all-electric car, as it depends on a small gas generator when the lithium battery’s charge falls below a certain point. Bodine sees that as a good thing. “There’s no anxiety,” he said, comparing the Volt to the all-electric Nissan Leaf. If an all-electric car like the Leaf loses its charge, he said, “You call a tow truck and wait for an hour.” He described the Volt’s battery as “a large array of the same batteries you use in cell phones.” It’s light and recharges in about 5 1/2 hours on 110 household current or 2 1/2 hours at one of the 240 volt charging stations which are starting to pop up around the

But it can be driven any time on its gasoline engine, supported by a 5 1/2 gallon fuel tank. The Volt, unlike the Prius, boasts an all-electric drive train, but even using the gas engine it costs only 2.5 cents per mile to run. “I pay one-quarter the cost for gas,” he said, comparing the Volt to his pickup truck. But it’s the electricity that makes all the difference in the mileage. After 5,000 miles of driving, Bodine’s Volt has averaged 246 miles per gallon according to

its onboard computer. Bodine drove his Volt into a Coupeville parking lot recently and pulled up next to a BMW 3 series vehicle. The Volt cost $42,000 but came with a $7,500 government rebate, making the two vehicles similar in sticker price. In terms of handling, braking, appearance and features, the two cars are comparable, he said. He lauded how the Volt handles See volt, A12

Langley Mayor Larry Kwarsick modified previously finalized development documents for a family member’s home shortly after he was hired as the city’s planning director in 2011, according to a statement released Friday by the Langley City Council. The news release said the council was not a court of law and can’t make any legal determinations, and instead has recommended the issue be investigated by the Island County Prosecutor’s Office. “The council has reason to believe that a violation of the law may have taken place,” said Hal Seligson, councilman and mayor pro tem. Seligson confirmed that the prosecutor’s office has agreed to look into the issue but was unsure when any decisions would be issued. Kwarsick, who was elected to his first term as mayor late last year, previously worked as the city’s director of community planning in 2011. He was apprised of the council’s action on Thursday but declined to comment on the specifics of the allegations. However, he also repeated his previous claim that he did nothing wrong. “I don’t expect to be found responsible for people’s feelings or opinions about my actions,” Kwarsick said. The council’s statement comes after a string of executive sessions last week concerning a whistleblower complaint detailing the allegations against the freshman mayor. According to documents city officials released Friday morning through a public records request filed two weeks ago, the complaint was lodged by Jeff Arango, the new director of community planning.

Langley Mayor Larry Kwarsick In a memo to the council, Arango said that Kwarsick had been involved in the permitting process of a family member’s home at 401 Minnie Lane since 2006. The property is mostly a wetland and development required a mitigation and a 10-year monitoring plan. Kwarsick, who has a private planning business and has been the town planner in Coupeville for years, helped develop the mitigation plan in association with one other private firm. In his memo, Arango said Kwarsick submitted a report to former Planning Director Larry Cort and planner Fred Evander and that an unsigned decision was issued Dec. 22, 2010, before they left for new jobs. However, Arango alleges that Kwarsick changed the contents in February after he was hired as the city’s new planning chief. According to Arango, in a conversation with Kwarsick last month, the mayor admitted he’d not been happy with Evander’s initial reluctance to endorse his submitted plan and did in fact See mayor, A12

Deer Lagoon Grange honored Christine Williams at its “Grange Month” celebration April 18 with its “Community Volunteer of the Year” award. This annual award recognizes an individual or group in the community for outstanding volunteer effort. Williams was recognized for her volunteer work with several groups in Island County including Friendship Force of South Whidbey in their effort to raise disaster relief for the victims of the earthquake and tsunami in Japan; serving on the Whidbey Island Farm Tour for the past several years; coordinating activities for Slow Food Whidbey Island; serving Island County Fair as superintendent for the baking section and organizing Fair University 2011; working with the Island County chapter of the American Red Cross; actively working with

Greenbank Farm and supporting its Agriculture Training program; working with the Greenbank Garden Club; and her help at Deer Lagoon Grange. As a member of Deer Lagoon Grange, Williams has organized the very successful community outreach program of Grange Food Basics. This program is a series of free-tothe-public, two-hour education sessions on various aspects of food, including raising food, preparing food and preserving food. The program has included the foods of Mexico, India and Africa. Another program initiated by Williams is her biweekly e-newsletter sent out to more than 400 folks about the food education community and events in Skagit, San Juan and Snohomish Counties. Williams is a retired veterinarian, university professor and sheep farmer.

Goof almost puts Emerson out of elected office By JESSIE STENSLAND Staff reporter

Island County Commissioner Kelly Emerson nearly forfeited her office by accident last week, but was saved by the county’s auditor. Emerson applied on the state’s “My Vote” website to have her voter’s registration address changed from her home on Camano Island to her second home on Fort Nugent Avenue in Oak Harbor. The problem is that the Oak Harbor home isn’t within District 3, which she currently represents, but is in Commissioner Angie Homola’s District 2. “I pay taxes in the district, so I wanted to have a little input,” said Emerson, who added that she’s a big proponent of voting and loves to vote. Emerson admitted that Island County Auditor Sheilah Crider saved her from making a huge mistake by warning her of the consequences of changing her voter’s registration address. If Emerson persisted, Crider warned, she would have had to resign her position as commissioner of District 3. Emerson said she realizes that some people may assume — inaccurately — that she wanted to vote in District 2 in order to cast a ballot against Homola, her political rival, in the primary election. Emerson, a

Tea-Party Republican, has often publicly squabbled with her two fellow commissioners, who are Democrats. She recently was accused of calling Homola an insult that’s also a word for a female dog; Emerson claimed she merely “mouthed” the word. Homola will likely face three other candidates in the primary election, which has the possibility of being a very tight race. Yet Emerson said her reason for wanting to vote in the district goes beyond the one election. As an interested resident of the area, she wanted to be able to vote on any number of candidates and issues, she said. As a compromise, Emerson said she will push her husband to change his voter’s registration address so he can vote from Oak Harbor. Homola said she was unaware that Emerson tried to change her voting address, but she’s glad the auditor stepped in to prevent a problem. She said the commissioners often receive complaints from voters in District 3. “They don’t feel well represented by Commissioner Emerson and this validates

that,” Homola said. A handful of citizens have alleged at meetings and in emails that Emerson lives nearly full-time in Oak Harbor and doesn’t spend much time in her district. Emerson, however, has said she splits her time evenly between her Camano and Oak Harbor homes. Her district includes Camano Island and much of North Whidbey outside of Oak Harbor. According to documents obtained through a public records request, Crider sent Emerson an email April 23 asking if she really wanted to change her voter’s registration address, which is the address where a citizen can vote from. Emerson responded in an email message, saying that she did indeed want to change her address and complaining that Crider had sent the message regarding such a “personal matter” to her work email address. Crider responded the next day with a legal explanation of the consequences of the address change. “Making that change that you have requested would require you to resign your office because you will no

longer be a registered voter within the district to which you were elected. Is that your intent?” Crider wrote. In response, Emerson sent an email asking Crider to disregard the original request. Emerson said she realized she had to be registered to vote in the district when she was a candidate, but she thought the law allowed her to change the address once she was elected. She and her husband purchased a second home in Oak Harbor last year in order to better serve constituents and to save her car — and herself — from the wear and tear of driving between county offices

FIRE DISTRICT Commissioners plan levy lift talks Commissioners of South Whidbey Fire/EMS plan to host three meetings this month to discuss the possible levy increase. Fire Chief Rusty Palmer recommended the commissioners seek a 15-cent increase in the November election. The commissioners have yet to approve the measure, and have had three public hearings on the tax bump thus far. Currently, the South Whidbey Fire/EMS levy is at 61 cents per $1,000 of assessed property value. Under the possible levy increase to 76 cents, a $200,000 property would pay $152 annually. Palmer and the fire commissioners have verbally supported the measure without voting on it so far. They said the levy is necessary to keep fire protection and emergency medical services at

their current capabilities. The meetings in May are at 5:30 p.m. Wednesday, May 10 at the Freeland Station; 7 p.m. Thursday, May 24 at the Bayview Community Hall; and at 7 p.m. Wednesday, May 30 at the Clinton Community Hall. The public is invited to attend and comment on the levy proposal, and any unable to attend one of the meetings may send written comments to the Freeland Station located at 5535 Cameron Road, Freeland, WA, or email Palmer at

Island doesn’t need legal pot To the editor: I have read with interest the back-and-forth discussion of whether to allow a distribution point for medical marijuana on this island. I would like to write against that idea. It is not that I have no sympathy for those in great pain, but I would like to present some deep reservations I have about this plan. 1. All drugs have side effects, but marijuana has more serious side effects that other painkillers do not have, such as long-term damage to the brain and greater impairment to driving skills. I understand that a driver can be as impaired, if not more so, under marijuana’s effects as with alcohol. We already have a tremendous problem with drunk drivers on this island. I would hate to see it made worse. 2. Most of us go off-island for various doctor appointments already. I assume that if a person truly needs marijuana, he or she could also obtain that prescription on the other side. Does it really have to be available here? 3. I fear that granting a distribution point for marijuana might well be a foot-in-the-door for marijuana as a recreational drug and perhaps other drugs as well. Supposedly, safeguards would be in place, but there are no guarantees. Again, do we need even a possible drug problem on this island? I am old enough to recall that when abortion laws were put into place everyone was told that all it would do would be to stop back alley abortions and would never become a huge problem as some feared. Regardless of a person’s feelings pro or con on abortion, it is easy to see that the fears were justified. I am writing this letter out of good will toward those on this island. We have an idyllic lifestyle here and I would like to see it preserved. It is not my wish to start an editorial war concerning medical marijuana distribution here, and certainly I do not wish to have bad feelings to or from anyone. It is only my desire to raise a word of caution. Let’s give this idea a lot more thought. Judith LaMontagne Freeland

Fair open to interlopers To the editor: It was with shock, amusement and concern that I read the April 28 front page article in The South Whidbey Record regarding the upcoming change to the Island County Fair. The traditional Fair Board, according to the article, “dissolved itself.” Maybe they should play the main stage on Saturday afternoon.

That’s some trick. The new board can reportedly make quicker payments and that may be a good thing, but exposing our county’s residents to bovine, baking, and rabbit competition from beyond our county line is quite another. Since its inception in 1895, The Island County Fair has become an institution. Every summer we get together and duke it out over who grows the best string beans, who is best at canning the beans, who has the fastest -cutting chainsaw, who has the best behaved golden retriever, swiftest barrel racer, cutest baby pigs, and how many different color swatches can be incorporated into a queen sized quilt. Over the generations, grudge matches have developed and if you don’t get a ribbon, it’s a comfort to know who you may have to defeat the following August. Now that we are designated an “area” fair we’ll be subjected to a sort of guerilla 4-H, nervously never knowing who our next challenger may be. I hear the dahlias from the sunny side of Orcas Island are to die for. Should we subject ourselves to tubers with such a radiance that

(by law) they haven’t been allowed to compete beyond Friday Harbor? How about stacking our South End tulips against the professionals from La Conner? To many, British Columbia is perceived as being in our “area.” What happens when the Royal Canadian Mounties gallop down here from the Peace Arch with those beautiful, huge horses? We’ll get our butts handed to us, that’s what. I’m not against a little competition, but word on the street is a scrappy herd of Holsteins from the south side of SedroWoolley are just aching for a little barnyard rumble in Langley! If this concept flies, our Falcon football squad may have to go up against the Seahawks in pre-season! Even if a person were to eke out a win against the interlopers, the previous pride of being awarded “Best Salmonberry Pie of Island County” will now be watered down by the nebulous title of “Best Pie In the Whidbey Island … Area.” How about a Black Angus from our glorious Maxwelton Valley with what was a distinguished, blue “Island County Fair” ribbon draped around that lustrous neck?

very well read “Best Side Of Beef … in these here parts.” And what of the newly dejected Camano Island folks? As a geographic piece of Island County they have been an official part of the Island County Fair from the beginning. Now it seems with the name “Whidbey Island Area Fair” the Camanoans will have to make their case for being in the “area” of Whidbey Island in order to be included in their own fair. Even though some say Camano is simply a peninsula attached to Stanwood, this is just too much! Or could this be the political end game? Could the Whidbey Island “area” be innocently redrawn without Camano, resulting in its tax revenue being gobbled up by Snohomish County? Only time will tell. Jeff Bakeman Freelend

Homola earns another term To the editor: In the last three years, I have had the opportunity to watch Angie Homola do her work as Island County commissioner and I am satisfied that she puts in more than a day’s work for a day’s pay. At all the commissioner meetings I have attended, Angie has shown her deep knowledge of county government, fiscal issues, environmental issues and especially budget issues. She understands the relationship between Island County and its cities and districts, and is clear on what is possible to achieve given the current economic situation. I would be very pleased to see Angie Homola continue to serve Island County as commissioner for four more years. Susan Bennett Langley

Ask before port sells bonds To the editor: Do you own property? Should your elected officials ask you before spending $1.3 million of your tax money? Do you think we should build a new marina in Langley? It is going to happen, if you do stand up and say no, or at the very least make them ask us, and explain why they want to spend the money! This will also be a tax burden for the next 30 years! I just spent an hour going through all the port meeting agendas from early 2010 and as per my memory the first mention of bonds was a presentation in February 2010. Since then, absolutely nothing. At the Dec. 13, 2011, meeting a mention of update on bond rating process. Then Jan. 10, 2012, something referred to as indicative request, code for bonds? And the agenda for Feb. 14, 2012, the same (under the radar), then the done deal in The Record. Spread the word! Shouldn’t they have to ask? Ivan Solkey Clinton

Doctor would rather be fishing To the editor: Thank you for the encouragement! I would like to thank my fellow Whidbey Islanders for the many calls and letters of encouragement that I have received over the last several weeks. Many of you have encouraged me to apply, as a doctor well known to the community, and resident of Coupeville, for the Whidbey General Hospital Board of Directors.

I do deeply appreciate the votes of confidence. At this time, however, I have several unfinished issues with the hospital that will require the board’s consideration. A new era is beginning for the hospital. A huge step in the right direction has been made with the elimination of the board/administration conflict of interest. As citizens, let’s continue to demand honesty and reform of our local hospital. Also ... halibut season opens Friday! Ling cod season opened this morning. You can talk to me soon for a catch report!

Distance runners pace Falcons in track regular season finale BY BEN WATANABE Staff reporter

LANGLEY — Thanks to a handful of multiple event winners, the Falcon girls track and field team won its first, and last, Cascade Conference meet of the season Thursday. South Whidbey cruised past Granite Falls and Coupeville, a 1A school and an island-rival with 71.5 points. On the final meet of the year for the Falcons, an unofficial Senior Day occurred when senior Sarah Cepowski won the 200-meter race. Cepowski, a team co-captain and four year track athlete, ran her fastest 200 and narrowly missed her personal record with a time of 29.41 seconds, just .20 seconds shy of a new best time. The senior edged out five over racers for the victory, and she also placed third in the 100-meter sprint out of 12 racers. On the boys team, which finished second behind Granite Falls, distance runner Will Zink won the mile. Zink finished in 5 minutes, 5.14 seconds to edge Coupeville freshman Matthew Hampton by one second. The Falcon senior missed his career-best time by two seconds. “It was not a PR, but I finished first so I felt good,” Zink said. “I was consistent through the first 400, and the second 400, the third and the fourth. It felt good all around. It was a good finish because I definitely had enough to pick it up on the last 300 (meters).” Running distance events runs in the family for the Zinks. Cole Zink,

Falcon freshman Samantha Baldwin misses clearing the high jump bar during the track and field meet at South Whidbey High School on Thursday. Will’s freshman brother, won the 800-meter and 3,200-meter races. Despite one of his worst times in the two-mile, Cole Zink handily won the short-fielded events. Only two other athletes ran the 800, and only one other in the 3,200. Zink’s older brother spoke glowingly about the future of Falcon track and field as long as Cole continues to improve.

“I’m pretty much spent on track. I may run in conference just for kicks and grins. I’m mostly here for Cole,” said Will Zink. “I’m excited for him. I think he’s going to do big stuff.” The boys team excelled in the throwing events. State-caliber javelin thrower Nick French won with his second-shortest mark of the season

at 152 feet, 2 inches. Falcon senior Colton Justus placed third with 124 feet, 10 inches in the javelin and won the shot put with a personal record throw of 40 feet, 1 inch. Throwing was also a bright spot for the Falcon girls team. Angelina Berger won the shot put and discus and finished second in the javelin. Berger, a junior and a state-caliber

thrower in all three events, placed first in the discus with a mark of 91 feet, 5 inches, several feet short of her personal best. Her distance in the shot put of 34 feet, 11.5 inches, was also well shy of her average marks. It may have been her shoes, designed to help her grip in the throwing circle for both events, which she had only purchased two days earlier. Throwing the javelin in a deluge of rain was equally difficult for Berger, who missed two attempts on out of bounds throws. Her final mark was 91 feet, 4 inches, more than 20 feet under her best throw of the season. “It was the worst thing I’ve ever done in my life, and I hope I never do it again,” Berger said. “It’s raining, I’d like to blame it on that. . . I don’t have cleats on. I was scared of slipping.” The Falcon girls team was also anchored by its distance runners. A string of juniors cruised from the 400-meter up to the two-mile races. Anna Hood and Nora Felt finished first and second in the 400, despite rarely running the event (it was Felt’s first of the year). Felt had a quick recovery before racing in her primary event, the 800 meter, which she placed third in behind teammates Jaime Rodden and Madi Boyd, both sophomores. Rodden improved her personal best time by three seconds to 2 minutes, 34.71 seconds, and Boyd had her best time of the season at 2 minutes, 38.64 seconds. See Pace, A8

Schultz, Cotton capture Cascade Conference girls golf meet for Falcons BY BEN WATANABE Staff reporter

USELESS BAY — There was no place like home for the South Whidbey girls golf team Thursday. The Falcons won their second meet in a week with three golfers who finished in the top six overall. South Whidbey’s tightly bunched trio at the top of the board helped the Falcons win the modified Stableford match, which counts points for strokes under par (one stroke over par is worth one point and one stroke under is worth three points). South Whidbey scored a meet-high 84 points and edged out Cascade Conference leaders King’s and Archbishop Murphy, 78 and 75 points, respectively. “I am very proud of the hard work all the golfers and

said Falcon head coach Tom Sage.

Knowing the home course at Useless Bay Golf

& Country Club certainly helped. The holes on the private course are littered with water hazards and sand bunkers, which were made more challenging as the girls slogged through a drenched course as rain poured during the match. “Useless Bay has been a wonderful advocate for us. Without them we would not have a golf program here,” Sage said. In a bit of a surprise, South Whidbey’s second and third slotted golfers scored highest for the Falcons. Chelsey Schultz and Hannah Cotton, both juniors, scored 22 points each through the front nine holes. Fellow junior Jenna Kaik, who was the lone South Whidbey 2A girls golf state championship qualifier last year, finished sixth overall with 20 points. Only the

top five finishers from each school scored toward the team’s points. A pair of freshmen rounded out South Whidbey’s scorers. Rosie Portillo scored 14 points, and Molly sage finished with six. “Golf is a very difficult sport. A contest may last up to five hours. There are no cheering crowds, no cheerleaders or referees, no one to block for you, no one to pass to if things get hard,” Sage said. “The field always changes so you can never practice the same shot. It takes a mentally tough competitor to play this game. Last year, our team could only beat one team in the league. Yesterday, we beat them all. It was a great day for South Whidbey girls See Capture, A8

The junior missed the previous week of practices while she was sick, and admitted the recovery was a bit slow. “I didn’t PR, but I’ve been sick for a while, so it’s good to get a time close to it,” said Klamm, who added she had no expectations heading into the Cascade Conference championships next week. “I always hope to do well, but it’s my first time doing track, so I don’t know what to expect.”


In the long distance races, juniors Lillianna Stelling and Bonnie Klamm claimed first and second place. Stelling won both the 1,600- and 3,200-meter runs, and was .4 seconds off her season-best time in the mile. “It felt pretty good,” Stelling said. “I think on the second lap I always tend to slow down a little bit.” Klamm, a first-year track runner,

Rob Schouten Gallery celebrates four years BY PATRICIA DUFF Island Life Editor

The Rob Schouten Gallery has its fourth anniversary this month and to celebrate, it honors the season of rebirth and renewal. “Birds & Nests — The Art of Spring,” is open through May and features a flock of fine artists showing all manner of works on the theme. But a special highlight of the show features a collaborative sculpture by gallery artists Robert Adamson, Dan Freeman, Rob Schouten and Sharon Spencer. The artists have created a four-foot diameter nest that holds a gift of handblown, vibrantlycolored glass eggs, installed near the gallery’s entrance through May. The idea was inspired by the new beginnings of spring, and by the continuing renewal of the gallery’s open doors. “It was initially Rob’s idea to have four artists create an installation to celebrate the gallery’s fourth anniversary,” gallery manager Victory Schouten said. “Once Dan, Sharon and Robert became involved the idea really took off,” she added. The artists all said they had one of the best times ever creating the piece.

“When we got to work on this piece a work rhythm naturally revealed itself,” Freeman said. “We chatted, told stories, laughed and had a great time. We laughed at the seagulls squawking from the rooftops of the building and imagined they were laughing at us and making fun of our nest building skills,” he said. Master nest builder Spencer said, for her, the project reflected the soulful spirit of renewal that the season brings and an affirmation for the artists. “Rob and Dan were a delight to work with,” Spencer said. We all put a lot of joy and laughter into this project. This big nest holds much more than sticks, twigs and moss; the conversation went from the joys and heartaches of making a living as an artist to how grateful we all are to be doing what we love. We all realized — even more so — how very, very important art is for the heart and soul,” she said. Rob Schouten asked Adamson to create the glass eggs and then happened to visit artist Jonni Reed after she finished pruning her fruit trees and had the twigs they needed. Freeman came up with the idea for the steel stand and Spencer found the lichens that would line the nest. Schouten sounded like a kid in a candy

store. “The feeling of being in sync with other artists as you are creating is tremendously stimulating and inspiring and we are already talking about collaborating again,” Schouten said. “The metaphor of new life emerging didn’t go unnoticed either and it felt like we were giving birth to a fun and stimulating dimension of our personal creativity.” Among all that creative spirit, Victory Schouten is forever grateful that they managed to keep the doors to the gallery open. “We love that little gallery,” she said. “And I am happy to know others love the gallery too, and really feel the connection, inspiration and beauty we want to offer; a haven for the spirit.” That spirit is expansive with much of the art in this show. The gallery also shows bronze and

natural fiber nests by Spencer, welded steel sculptures by Freeman, handblown glass by Adamson and Janis Swalwell, handmade jewelry by Barbara Mundell and Tammi Sloan, encaustics by Kathleen Otley, paintings and prints by Linnane Armstrong, Anne Belov, Karin Bolstad, David Iles, Craig Johnson, Pete Jordan, Jacob Kohn, Stacey Neumiller, Jonni Reed, Rob Schouten, Wendy Wees, and Mark Van Wickler, as well as handwoven silk by Cyndi Wolfe, and ceramics by Maryon Atwood and Dan Ishler. New to the gallery are Armstrong, Atwood, Bolstad, Ishler, Johnson, Sloan and Wees. “The Birds & Nests — The Art of Spring” will run through May. The gallery is open from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. daily.

By KATHY REED Staff reporter

It’s immediately apparent Sojourn Studios is unlike most fitness centers. From the warm wood floors to the soft, rich colors on the walls, and from the soothing music to the yoga hammocks suspended from the ceiling, it’s clear owner Jodi Strevel wants to create an atmosphere of contentment and relaxation as her clients move toward their fitness goals. “I love to help people, to make them feel happy and strong,” Strevel said. “My theory, from all the research I’ve done over my career, helped me decide I wanted to have a wellness center that touches on the mind, body and spirit,” she continued. Her new fitness studio is located upstairs at Bayview Corner, in the former offices of the South Whidbey Record. Walls were removed to leave plenty of

space in the main studio for Strevel’s classes on aerial yoga, kickboxing and dance aerobics, to name a few. Off the main studio there’s a weight room, a Pilates room and a room with a Gyrotonic Cobra machine. (Gyrotonic machine workouts use a series of flowing, circular movements and breathing techniques to stimulate the cardiovascular system while strengthening and toning core muscles.) “It can be very rehabilitating,” said Strevel. A life-long Whidbey Island resident, Strevel has had an interest in physical fitness since she was a teenager. She became a personal trainer at age 18 and has always been involved in the fitness industry. Most recently, Strevel was working as a physical therapist on the mainland. She began studying aerial yoga and decided the time was right to fulfill her own personal journey and open a fitness center

on Whidbey Island. She calls her aerial yoga classes “Sojourn Suspension” and says it is a form of yoga anyone can do. “It caters to everyone’s needs. Everyone can do it,” she said. “Plus, it’s beautiful to watch and it’s fun.” Sojourn Suspension, according to Strevel, is the practice of some forms of Hatha yoga and other movement techniques while using a soft, fabric hammock, which is intended to help achieve proper posture and alignment through relaxation. The hammocks support up to 1,000 pounds. “The hammock supports you,” Strevel reassured. “There are tons of benefits to aerial yoga.” Sojourn Studios offers a variety of fitness classes for different levels. Strevel hopes to be able to concentrate more of her time on the suspension classes as she See Sojourn, A11

grows her business. “I’m working on getting more instructors so I can focus my time on the suspension,” she said. “I want every class to be a quality, welcoming experience for people,” she continued. “I want people to associate exercise as being fun, something they can enjoy.” Perhaps a unique aspect to Strevel’s

fitness studio is her desire to focus on more than just the physical. “It’s an emotional journey, too,” she said. “People need a boost. They need to feel recharged, even if it’s just for an hour. My goal is to make Whidbey Island happy.” Strevel feels her background as a personal trainer will help her succeed in her new venture. She said her expertise lies in designing specific, individual exercise or personal training programs for people to help them attain their fitness goals. She plans to cater to people

at all fitness levels, including those who are preparing for or have had surgery; before, during and after pregnancy; or those being treated for disease or injury — all with their physician’s consent, of course. Her journey has led her here, Strevel said, and now she looks forward to helping others find their own path to fitness. “It’s hard for people sometimes,” she said. “Everyone has a different journey.”

on the road and he can relax in his heated leather seat while listening to the Bose sound system. Having owned a gas-electric hybrid Prius, he said it doesn’t approach the capabilities of the Volt. “There’s a pretty dramatic difference,” he said. “It doesn’t handle well at high speeds. This handles like a BMW 3 series.” He drove 24.5 miles all-electric from his Maxwelton area home to reach Coupeville, and the computer display reported he had 12 miles of battery usage left. It wouldn’t get him back home, but the gas engine would with, as Bodine frequently says, “No anxiety.” On a warmer day, the car can run for 50 miles or more on battery power. Bodine has a head for numbers but not everyone does, and he says that’s frustrating. “I get a lot of questions but it’s hard for them to understand,” he said of inquiring people. “Electric cars are the car of the future except for the ‘anxiety’ problem. This is a practical car.” He’s confident enough in its dependability to say it would be suitable for a family with just one car. The battery, which comes with a five year warranty, is built in behind the front seat, dividing the two back seats, so seating is limited to four people. The Volt got off to a shaky start when FOX and other news outlets emphasized a battery fire it experienced during federal safety tests. Bodine said the

test was extreme. “They ran a spear through the battery, rolled the car twice and let it sit. Two day later it burned,” he said. “A normal car would have burned instantly. In a crash in a Volt, there’s no immediate problem.” He noted the Volt eventually achieved the highest 5 star federal safety rating, but by then the damage had already been done. “It’s a press problem,” he said. Chevrolet offered a recall for all Volt owners to reinforce the box protecting the battery, but Bodine calls the safety fix only “marginally necessary.” He might take his Volt to the Anacortes dealer he purchased it from when he has time. Bodine said the Volt is a new concept in electric vehicles because of the lithium batteries, electric drive train and small gas motor which soundlessly kicks in when the battery is low. “What’s new is the combination of everything,” he said. “But marketing is hard. It’s hard to tell the customer what he’s got.” Despite the poor publicity, Chevrolet has sold about 30,000 Volts. There is one other on Whidbey that Bodine knows of, owned by a man in Greenbank. The federal $7,500 rebate is good on the first 200,000 cars sold. “It puts the American car industry back at number one after 30 years,” Bodine said. “I’d recommend it to anyone, and I have no stock in GM.”

alter the contents. However, Kwarsick said a final decision had not been issued — the document was never signed — and that he had simply completed it in February after he took over, Arango wrote. “Mr. Kwarsick said he was frustrated that Mr. Evander would not sign off on the implementation of the mitigation plan or monitoring report before he left the city,” the memo said. “Mr. Kwarsick said that Mr. Evander had started the decision and that he ‘finished it up’ and stuck it in the file and forgot to

change the date.” According to other documents provided in the records request, Evander confirmed that he did finalize the decision and submitted it to Cort. He also specified what parts of the decision had been altered, one of which included a finding of fact that said restoration “had been completed in a single phase rather than 7-year multi-phased plan originally proposed.” Arango’s memo said that he only began looking into the issue after being questioned about unsigned decisions by South Whidbey blogger Skip Demuth. In an interview Friday, Demuth said he was pleased the council had taken action

but said he had no particular axe to grind with Kwarsick. “It’s really about protection of sensitive areas and following the rules,” Demuth said. The California resident has property on South Whidbey and said he was tipped off about the situation. His subsequent investigation revealed what he called “irregularities in the permitting process” and has led him to question whether Kwarsick is wearing too many hats. While Kwarsick maintained that he did nothing wrong, he vowed to cooperate with the prosecutor’s office and expressed disappointment that the issue has

resulted in controversy. “I’m very sorry for this turmoil,” Kwarsick said. Since the issue erupted, he said many have called or written and expressed their support, to which he said he was thankful. He also said he held no ill will toward the council for its decision and did not expect this to interfere with the day-to-day operation of government. “I think the council did the best job they could under the circumstances,” Kwarsick said. “They are good people doing the best they can, just like I am.” Justin Burnett can be reached at

Radar angels: the true story of how birds migrate During World War II, pilots puzzled over phantom specks on their radar screens. Seasonally, these faint apparitions would appear, bloom, seeming to ride the wind before disappearing. The pilots at first thought these green dots on their screens represented small weather systems, since they usually appeared over water. Soon the pilots discovered these radar angels were flocks of migrating birds. Using radar to study bird m i g r a t i o n has become


its own science called radar ornithology. Weatherman Cliff Mass’ web site includes images of the vast shorebird migration taking place this spring off the coast of Washington. As his images show, waves of bird populations move north, taking advantage of favorable winds and weather. NEXRAD and other radar systems, as well as radio transmitters affixed to migrating birds, have given us much new information on timing, directions and destinations of bird migration. NEXRAD was developed to track weather events, but using the “Clear Air Mode” this sensitive Doppler radar system can pick up small targets such as birds, bats and insects. Even pollen and dust reflect the radar’s electromagnetic energy. Birds are recognized as such because they move faster than the winds blowing them. With all this new technology it’s easy to forget how recently we’ve begun to understand what happens to birds in migration.

Mexican folklore suggests that in early winter hummingbirds cling to tree branches and that their bodies dry up. When spring rains return, the birds rehydrate and fly off again. Even the “Father of Taxonomy” Carl Linnaeus, who established a biological classification system in 1735, which is still used today, believed that migrating birds such as swallows hibernated during winter in lake bottoms. Early in his career, John James Audubon wondered whether the Eastern Phoebe that nested in his garden one year was the same bird that had nested there the previous year. He tied a piece of yarn around the leg of that phoebe and sure enough the same bird returned the following spring. This was one of the first experiments with bird banding but it wasn’t until the 1920s that the U.S. and Canada governments set up formal centers for the collection and maintenance of banding records. Since then banding has contributed

much to the understanding of bird migration. Some of my favorite migrating angels are swallows, birds that we can appreciate right here on Whidbey, without the need for radar. The Violet-green Swallows and Tree Swallows have already returned to flit around their nesting boxes in my garden. And although I’ve seen them passing through, the Barn and Cliff Swallows have not yet set up housekeeping for the season.

We now know that swallows migrate far south of the United States and Mexican border. “Our” Barn Swallows winter in southern South America, requiring a 10-thousand mile round trip journey every year. If you think about it, that’s almost as difficult to imagine as the birds spending the winter hibernating in the mud at the bottom of lakes. You can see Cliff Mass’ radar images of bird migration along Washington’s

west coast at http://cliffmass. bird-migration-on-radar.html. For an explanation of how NEXRAD “sees” birds, go to EXRADseestheatmosphere. aspx. Frances Wood can be reached at wood@whidbey. com. Her book on bird watching, “Brushed by Feathers: A Year of Birdwatching in the West,” could be the perfect gift for Mom.

Godfather of soup celebrates birthday with cookbook cake BY PATRICIA DUFF Island Life Editor

Nine years and 950 lunches later, chef Dan Saul is still the godfather of the soup kitchen. “Being a cook is like being in the mafia,” Saul said, “once you’re in, you’re in for life.” Saul celebrated his 78th birthday, April 26, and the regular 150 to 200 guests that frequent the soup kitchen at Langley’s CMA church were there to help him celebrate. A friend of Saul’s, John Auburn of JW Desserts in Clinton and an award-winning baker, brought the cake. He made a half mocha, half lemon cookbook-shaped concoction — a satirical replica of a cookbook KCTS Channel 9 published of Saul’s recipes. The cake’s open pages featured an “Old Goat Stew” recipe. It read: We here at Channel 9 would like to congratulate Chef Dan (Sauly) for one of the strangest recipes to make our book. Only someone with a passion to help his community with his off the wall recipes consisting of anything he can beg, borrow or trade wine for. Disclaimer: This recipe has not been tested, but if it is anything like the past 77 years Sauly has submitted, you are in for a lifetime of energy,

friendship and more culinary surprises. Happy Birthday Dan. Old Goat Stew: Goats can be stubborn and a little tough but will be well worth the effort. One old goat, garlic, laughter, onions, turnips rutabagas, one bottle of red wine, potatoes, carrots, celery, rosemary, pickles, hot dogs, sauerkraut, kitchen sink, one Mini Cooper. Stew the old goat for days, cut up the onions (wipe eyes), pour 8 ounces of red wine (drink), add a bunch of laughter, cut in 4 inch pieces of hotdogs, carrots, celery (don’t mistake fingers for hot dogs), stand at least 4 feet away and toss pickles and sauerkraut in pot. What doesn’t go in the pot will go in the next week’s soup. If you didn’t use the kitchen sink use to trade for stuff for next week’s soup. Load your old goat stew into a Mini Cooper and serve to 150 people. Auburn said that Saul is energetic, positive and funny and the things he does for the community are outstanding. “He’s 78 and the energy he has is just amazing. I aspire to be like this guy,” Auburn said. The way the soup kitchen works is that Saul makes soup out of whatever is donated by community orga-

nizations such as Good Cheer Food Bank, Clinton Food Mart or local restaurants. It is the “stone soup” concept of anything in the kitchen will go into the soup that inspired Auburn to create the “Old Goat Stew” recipe for Saul’s cake. Saul is willing to use anything given to him to feed hungry folks as deliciously as he can. “Somebody brought in five gallons of pickles and I made pickle soup out of that, “ Saul said. Nobody had ever heard of pickle soup before, he said. “Whatever they bring in I cook. I made nettle soup last year, which was good as long as you don’t touch the dang things with your fingers. It was OK, I wore gloves,” he said. The soup kitchen is open every Tuesday and Thursday from noon to 1:30 p.m. and engages the help of 32 volunteers to keep it going. Saul’s infectious laughter and high spirited presence has made him a local rockstar of sorts. He keeps a blog about his soup kitchen exploits at and KCTS Channel 9 even published a cookbook of some of his dinner recipes. “As it turns out,” Saul says on his blog, “Cooking is a beautiful thing.” Happy Birthday, Chef Dan.

State cooks up new rules for small bakers BY NATHAN WHALEN Staff reporter

The days of Fido begging for a tasty snippet of bread are ending as small-scale bakers producing out of their homes will have to develop a plan to limit kitchen access of young children and pets. That access plan is just one part of the new state requirements that have at least one small business owner in Coupeville concerned whether he will be able to keep selling the bread he bakes. Brett Rebischke-Smith, owner of Brett’s Bread, a fixture at the Coupeville Farmers Market on Saturdays, is concerned new cottage industry regulations will add more requirements and expenses, leaving him unable to remain in business. “It’s really sort of up in the air right now,” RebischkeSmith said, expressing frustration about the lack of information available from the Washington State Department of Agriculture about the new regulations. Rebischke-Smith, a stay-athome dad, has been selling his sweet egg bread at the farmers market since 2008. The new rules, which were approved by the 2011 Legislature, outline the licensing requirements cottage business owners must meet in order to produce food from their home kitchen. Those regulations go into effect in 2013. Typically, food that is sold to the public has to be produced in a commercial kitchen. On Whidbey Island, however, people selling bread, cookies, cakes and other low-hazard baked goods have been receiving an exemption to operate. They merely needed a food handler’s permit to sell. “We’ve been anticipating this for the last two to three

Shirlee Read’s pie booth at the Bayview Farmers Market is always popular. Although new rules affecting home kitchens take effect next year, she says she’ll be ready for them. years,” said Shirlee Read, owner of The Kitchen Door on South Whidbey. She has been selling pies at the Bayview Farmers Market for the past 12 years. Island County was one of few counties in the state to provide such an exemption. With the new rules, bakers now have to either apply for a license through the state Department of Agriculture, install a commercial kitchen at their home or find a commercial kitchen from which to prepare food. The Agriculture Department is currently drafting rules to implement the law and cottage business owners have until 2013 to comply. The rules are aimed at food producers that have gross sales less than $15,000 per year. Sally Waters, food program manager for the Island County Health Department,

said she is communicating with farmers market vendors about the change of the law. She hopes informing folks early will give people time to prepare for the changes. “What we’re hoping is that people will go through the WSDA food safety program,” Waters said. The draft of Cottage Food Operations, available on the Washington State Department of Agriculture website, outlines the requirements folks need to meet if they use their home kitchen. Staff from the department of agriculture will have to inspect the home kitchens. In addition to documenting the equipment in the home kitchen, people would have to provide, among other things, plans preventing children and pets from entering the kitchen during food production times. “What we’re looking for

Learn more about cottage food rules The Washington State Department of Agriculture is accepting comments concerning new regulations for cottage industry. The department will license home kitchens to allow them to produce non hazardous baked goods that can be sold at farmers markets. Information about the new license requirements can be accessed at CottageFoodOperation. Officials are busy developing rules for the recently passed legislation and licenses will become available in June. Written comments can be sent to Julie Carlson, WSDA food safety and consumer services division coordinator, at, or P.O. Box 42560, Olympia, WA 98504-2560. A public meeting concerning the new rules takes place at 1 p.m. Tuesday, May 22, in room 172, Natural Resources Building, 1111, Washington St. SE, Olympia. here is cleanliness,” said Kirk Robinson, assistant director for the Washington State Department of Agriculture.

and pets during food production times and the labels that must be placed on products. “It’s going to create a bureaucratic nightmare for them,” Read said of the inspection process. The application and inspection process would be $75

for the public health review, $125 for the inspection, and $30 for application processing and a one-year permit, according to the Department of Agriculture website. Read said the license costs will be a financial blow to many food producers who sell at farmers markets to make a little extra money. Those costs may discourage people from baking goods. People not wishing to get a license can either install a commercial kitchen or rent time from a current one. Installing a commercial kitchen wouldn’t be possible for Rebischke-Smith. “As a renter, I don’t have the option to install a commercial kitchen,” he said. Waters said that a commercial kitchen is a time-consuming, expensive proposition for a small business owner. Commercial equipment is more expensive than home equipment and a homeowner would have to change the property’s zoning to accommodate a commercial use. There are several commercial kitchens that operate on Whidbey Island. Rebischke-Smith said it could be cumbersome to haul his ingredients to a commercial kitchen, bake and then haul his product home. The Island County Fairgrounds is trying to get a commercial kitchen installed. Commercial kitchens are already available at the Greenbank Farm and the Coupeville Recreation Hall. Rebischke-Smith said he wasn’t sure about whether to lease space at a commercial kitchen. He’d like to get a better understanding of the new cottage industry rules first before determining how to best proceed. “They don’t have a procedure in place yet, RebischkeSmith said.

Master Gardeners plant seeds of education BY REBECCA OLSON Staff reporter

Enthusiasm and education are blooming at the Greenbank Farm Master Gardener Display Garden with a variety of free, public classes that dig deeper than ordinary garden classes. The Island County Master Gardener education series began April 22 with a class on advanced composting and worm bins, and continues at 1 p.m. Sunday, May 6 with advanced rhododendron care, then 1 p.m. Saturday, June 16 with roses, Sunday, Sept. 16 with berry care and in October, a presentation on espalier. Coming up on May 6 is advanced rhododendron care and propagation, presented by expert rhododendron cultivator and Master Gardener Bill Stipe, owner of Glynneden Gardens, where more than 5,000 rhodies grow in his display garden. Stipe is no newcomer to rhodies; he’s been growing them for 50 years and will teach everything from planting to fertilizing and pruning to hybridizing. He’ll also talk about pest control, growing from seed and other maintenance issues. Stipe’s favorite feature of rhododendrons is their wide variety. Some are just a couple of inches tall and are used as ground cover, “and some that I’ve seen in China are 100 feet tall,” Stipe said. Just as varied as their size are their leaves. Some have thin, long leaves, and some have reddish or bluish leaves. “I try to tell people a rhododendron shouldn’t be bought just for the flowers,” Stipe said, adding that rhodies look good year-round. Stipe has been a Master

Gardener since 1987. “It gives me a chance to explain to others and help others,” he said, adding that he loves to meet new people. “I find gardeners are ethical people; honest and straightforward and just a great group of people.” Find out more about Stipe and Glynneden Gardens at While the composting class by Janet Hall, WSU/ Island County Waste Wise volunteer coordinator and Master Gardener Toni Grove is over, Hall emphasized that now is the time to work on composting. Not only is it the core of healthy, rich gardening soil, but last year, the Whidbey Island Fair added a category for composting. Even if the compost doesn’t earn awards at the fair, “one of the key things to be a good gardener is having good soil,” Hall said. “It really is easy to get compost. We live in a great place to make compost,” Hall said. For information about composting, as well as to purchase worm bins and receive free worms, contact Hall at 678-7974 or 360-629-4522, or visit On June 16, learn the ins and outs of gardening roses with Master Gardener Maryanne Coffey, consulting rosarian and rose judge for the American Rose Society. She has been a Master Gardener since 2003. This advanced rose class takes students beyond the original planting to feeding, pruning, winterizing and more. “On the island, they tell you you can only grow these roses that bloom once a year,” Coffey said. This isn’t so, and Coffey loves to experiment by planting a

They can come through the hardest weather and have these glorious blooms,” Coffey said. Her mother and grandmother grew roses when Coffey was young and she wanted to continue the tradition. To Coffey, each rose is an individual and she is passionate about trying new things with her plants. “As we go along, we just try to continue to educate people. If we have a disaster in one garden, it’s the old turning lemons into lemon-

ade. It allows people to come up with fresh ideas,” Coffey said. “We just love what we do.” “Oh, La, La, Espalier” is scheduled for October and will be presented by Donna Stansberry, Master Gardener since 1997 and founder of the Master Gardener Gardens at the Greenbank Farm. In the hands-on class, she will teach planting, pruning, pollination and more about the apple tree variety that’s great for covering bare walls or dividing spaces. “It’s just a very slow process, but it’s so wonderful for older people because you don’t have to climb into

trees,” Stansberry said of cultivating espalier. The trees can be pruned to look like candelabra, fans and more. Stansberry’s favorite feature of the plant is its ability to divide a garden into “rooms.” She and her husband, Steve, spend hours in their gardens but if the acres are divided into smaller rooms, it makes it easier for Stansberry to garden one room for a couple of hours instead of trying to conquer everything at once. May 13 through 19 has been proclaimed Washington State University Master Gardener Week by

Gov. Chris Gregoire. The WSU Extension Master Gardener Program began in 1973 and provides free public education in gardening and environmental stewardship. In 2011, Master Gardeners volunteered 3,654 hours in Island County. All classes are conducted at the Display Garden at the Greenbank Farm, located at 765 Wonn Road in Greenbank.
