Water changes on tap

The Clinton ferry pulls into its longtime terminal. Progress is being made on plans to move the terminal one-third of a mile to the east to provide an easier connection to Sound Transit’s commuter train.

Langley resident Joyce Fossek addresses the City Council Monday about a proposed water rate hike. Like many at the meeting, she argued that the new schedule provides little savings to those already conserving water.

Residents turned off by Langley water rates By JUSTIN BURNETT Staff reporter

Langley city officials’ proposed comprehensive water plan update and rate hike saw its first real critics this week. The plan would raise more money to support the water system, while cutting rates for qualifying seniors and low income people, raising rates for others, and actually encouraging more water usage to keep the system clean. During the City Council’s regular meeting Monday, about a dozen people showed up for a public hearing to complain about the new rate structure and the planning process for long-range projects. The new rate structure, which applies to residential customers only, is proposed to change from the current monthly base rate of $25.46 with a 43-cent charge per 100 gallons to a monthly base rate of $39.59 for up to 10,000 gallons used. Every additional 100 gallons would cost another 50 cents up to

30,000 gallons and any more than that would run $1.25 per 100 gallons. City officials say the rate schedule is designed to encourage water conservation among the heaviest users. But, based on the 117-gallon per day usage of the average household, they maintain that most residents will actually see their monthly bill go down by about $1. However, those who use little water now say the change will be a hefty increase and may just change their habits. “I consider myself a water sipper, not a water user,” said Joyce Fossek, a longtime Langley resident. “I think I’m going to have to use a heck of a lot more water,” she said. Kay Lagerquist, also of Langley, said she thought her rate would double and worried about the expense. “It’s a significant amount of money per billing,” Lagerquist said.

Challis Stringer, director of Public Works, said the city is mandated by law to maintain and improve its water system. And a water study she performed indicated that the current rate schedule will leave the city in the red by about $15,000 by the end of 2012. The new rates will bring in just enough to fill the gap. Mayor Larry Kwarsick said there are many rate structures out there, but at the end of the day each city is required by law to make sure it brings in enough revenue to cover its costs. The water system has to be run like a business, he said. “This is a business and unfortunately it’s about income,” Kwarsick said. “We have to keep the system solvent.” City officials did point out that the new schedule proposes the See water, A6

Mukilteo terminal move supported on Whidbey By Jim Larsen Record editor

Future ferry riders from Clinton to Mukilteo won’t be docking between Ivar’s and the block of white waterfront condos if the state Department of Transportation has its way. The DOT’s Ferries Division announced Monday afternoon that the aging ferry terminal at Mukilteo should be replaced with a new terminal one-third of a mile to the east. The idea agrees with Dave Hoogerwerf, chairman of the Clinton Advisory Committee. “I favored it,” Hoogerwerf said Tuesday, referring to past testimony he’s made before ferry officials. “Primarily for two features — it’s close to the Sound Transit train and will have a good bus connection, and it’s less costly.” This preferred alternative was selected based on public, agency and tribal comments received on the draft environmental impact statement (EIS) released in January 2012, according to a news release.

As the Ferries Division sees it, the preferred alternative, known as Elliot Point 2, would best avoid environmental impacts and it addresses problems at the current terminal at the foot of Front Street and Highway 525. These include a 60-yearold dock in need of significant repairs and upgrading, inadequate passenger connections between the ferry and nearby commuter rail and transit facilities, and pedestrian and vehicle conflicts. The Mukilteo/Clinton ferry route is the state’s busiest for vehicles and has the second-highest annual ridership, serving more than 4 million riders in 2011. “We have worked for several years with ferry riders, community members, elected officials, tribes and others to get to this point, which moves us one step closer to building a new Mukilteo ferry terminal,” said David Moseley, assistant transportation secretary, Ferries See terminal, A6

Jeff and Jana Madrigali won the 50/50 raffle at the Whidbey Animals’ Improvement Foundation Spring Fling auction this year and donated their winnings back to WAIF.

One Saturday a volunteer read a note left by a child at a Whidbey Island Nourishes (WIN) vending machine. It read: “Thank you so much for the yummy oranges. Fruit is expensive, so I don’t get it a lot, but it makes me feel good to eat healthy food. Thank you. PS: The banana bread is super good!” The youth had drawn a heart at the end of the note. WIN founder Mary Fisher said that the comment box is an eye-opener for her and the small army of dedicated volunteers who make and distribute lunches to hungry South Whidbey School District children through its Backpack Program and through a free, healthy-food vending machine at the South Whidbey Commons in Langley. “It is always nice when we get a note saying that a family is doing better and no longer needs our assistance,” Fisher said. “But that is always tempered by those who get added to our weekly lunch tallies,” she added. Homelessness is one issue that comes up often for the group. Fisher said when people are struggling with issues surrounding shelter it means that food is precarious, as well. In a recent recap of WIN’s activities, Fisher included the latest statistics on South Whidbey families who are known to be struggling with various issues of homelessness, whether it’s living in a shelter, a car, with friends or relatives, on someone’s couch or who is unsheltered altogether. The numbers were given to her by the Readiness to Learn Foundation, a nonprofit which provides coordinated services for children and families in Island County and the Stanwood area. The statistics are compiled from RTL’s county-wide McKinney-

Vento consortium data. Since April on South Whidbey it was reported that there are 23 unaccompanied youths, 73 youths who are homeless in the district, 39 homeless persons “doubled up” or living with relatives, friends or not in their own houses, 17 persons living in a shelter and 16 living unsheltered altogether. The spring has been a very busy time for WIN, Fisher said, with many lunches made to keep up with demand. The program and its outreach has been so successful that other communities are inquiring about the WIN model. “Recently we assisted the Northshore PTA group to start a feeding program and they are already up and running with a beginning program they have dubbed Community Kitchen,” Fisher said. The Chimmicum School District on the Olympic Peninsula may also be getting a helping hand from Elizabeth Felt, a minister in Port Ludlow who is a resident of Freeland and who recently had a guided tour of WIN’s kitchens and vending machine to see how the system works. The plan in Port Ludlow is for a couple of churches to team together to provide meals for children in the summer. “We think this sort of education of other areas wanting to replicate our program is one of the best ways we can help children and raise awareness about the importance of consistent good nutrition for children’s development,” Fisher said. A new local partner to WIN is the Unitarian Universalist Church of Whidbey Island and volunteers there have been making burritos and banana bread for the vending machines and backpacks. They will also make and distribute lunches for the Whidbey Island Garden Tour June 23, a fundraiser for WIN and for which it is taking

City council approves parking lot again BY RECORD STAFF

All signs point to “Go!” for a shared parking lot agreement. For the second time, the Langley City Council has approved its portion of a three-way agreement to use the Langley Middle School’s parking lot to supplement marina parking. The Port of South

Whidbey owns the marina and is working together with the city on an expansion project. Anticipating the need for more parking, a memorandum of understanding was drafted that would make the middle school’s former bus barn parking lot available. The council approved the agreement in April but came

back Monday after its recent review by the school district. Langley Mayor Larry Kwarsick said the changes were not substantive, but did warrant new action by the council. The agreement was once again unanimously approved.

Letters In response

Considering the farm’s fate To the editor: I recently attended the Port of Coupeville’s monthly meeting, an edifying exercise in parliamentary procedure, grassroot democracy and heartfelt decision making by the three dedicated port commissioners. With the participation of concerned Whidbey Island citizens the future of the Greenbank Farm is being decided. What most struck me was the connection and concern everyone in that room has for the farm, each within the realm of their own experience. It is truly a community resource, a many faceted jewel. The Greenbank Farm offers a tangible sense of space, open space, a true treasure. Having lived in the east, I have come to appreciate the great sense of space we are fortunate to share in this corner of the world. Space where dogs run free, space to run along meandering paths, space to grow marvelous things, to raise chickens and goats, to offer food and beverage to those passing through, and art to soothe our souls and vistas and baby ducks and I could go on … simply walk the land and you will get it. What I left the meeting with is that this improbable experiment in land use, the Greenbank Farm, is deemed worth the effort by all concerned. Taking the long view, this in itself may be enough to save it for future generations. Jan Gunn Greenbank

Marijuana opinion rebutted To the editor: I am responding to the “Island doesn’t need legal pot” letter submitted by Judith Lamontagne in the Saturday, May 5 letters. After reading the letter several times, it was hard to know where to start with a rebuttal. The writer says, “All drugs have side effects but marijuana has more serious side effects that other pain killers do not have … I understand that a driver can be impaired, if not more so, under marijuana’s effects as with alcohol.” Judith, in 2009, according to the National Highway Safety Administration and the Center for Disease Control, Washington state had 492 traffic fatalities due to alcohol use. There were zero fatalities due to marijuana. According to the Center for Disease Control, in Washington state, there were 988 deaths due to prescription drug overdoses. I won’t go into how many prescription

drug overdoses were treated in hospitals with the people surviving. There were no marijuana overdoses for the same period. As for your question, “Do we need even a possible drug problem on this island?” Judith, I think the statistics speak for themselves. There is already a big drug problem in America and the ones that are the best at killing people are the legal ones. Your concern 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?” doesn’t take into consideration the fact that someone dealing with chemotherapy or some other illness that medical cannabis can help with really shouldn’t be forced to go to “the other side.” This is not what I would call “good will toward those on this island.” Would this attitude also be realistic about the legal drugs like painkillers or alcohol? Statistically, these are much more deadly than cannabis. Shall we ban those on this island and make people in pain go to the other side? May I suggest that you take your own advice when you closed with, “Let’s give this idea a lot more thought,” and give the idea some real, critical thought.

Commissioner defies the law To the editor: Is Kelly Emerson above the law? If you or I were in violation of a county regulation and refused to acknowledge the county’s authority and were assessed fines, do you think the county would not take action? How long has it been since Kelly Emerson was assessed fines? Do we have to sit by and watch her grandstanding to show that she can defy county rules? Judge Hancock threw out her suit against the county. He ordered her to pay court costs. The taxpayers paid for her suit. She refuses to obey the court order. The county was advised it would cost more money to get her to comply and pay. As taxpayers do we have any rights when it comes to a sitting commissioner’s flagrant defiance of county laws?

While this is a rate structure designed around conservation, the city has done so well conserving in recent years that it’s actually begun to cause problems. Less use has resulted in sediment buildup in the pipes, which requires the city to flush the system more frequently.

of antiquated water mains. But, it also mentions projects that could take place within the next 20 years. One includes the construction of a 1 million gallon capacity water tower near Talking Circle. Nearby residents say the structure could be 100 feet tall and that they were never told about the project. “This is approximately the size of a 10-story building,” Gil Low said. “This was quite shocking,” said Mully Mullally, while holding up a picture of a large water tower. She and several others requested that the city have some type of process to let the public know about important projects no matter how far out in the future they are planned. Before a water tower could be built, it would go through a significant public process, from being reviewed by the planning board and council to being subject to at least one public hearing. But Kwarsick acknowledged after the meeting that more could be done to make sure people are aware of possible future projects and that he would be looking at ways to accomplish that. As this was just a first reading for the comprehensive water system plan and rate hike, the council did not take action. Kwarsick said he would be taking a second look at the rate structure before it comes back to the council for a vote but made it clear he was making no promises. “We have ‘X’ number of dollars we have to collect,” Kwarsick said.

Division. “Next, we look forward to completing the environmental process so we can move forward to secure funding for final design and construction.” A final EIS will be completed by Washington State Ferries and the Federal Transit Administration in spring 2013. As the design and environmental review continues, the preferred alternative will continue to be refined. Elliot Point 2 is on the western portion of the Mukilteo Tank Farm east of the current terminal. Construction of a new terminal at this location would cost approximately $120 million to $130 million. The Legislature has, so far, identified $90.1 million for the project, including $29 million in federal planning and design grants. Current federal funding will allow WSF to complete the final EIS. The project may apply for additional federal funds once the EIS process is complete. The Clinton Ferry Advisory Group includes Hoogerwerf, Dean Enell and Bruce Mulvey. Call Hoogerwerf at 579-1505 for information or visit the Mukilteo Multimodal Project website. He also serves as co-chair of all the Puget Sound ferry advisory committees.

Falcon athletic director gets head start to curb concussions BY BEN WATANABE Staff reporter

LANGLEY — Almost a dozen Falcon student-athletes suffered concussions and other head injuries this year. And South Whidbey athletic director Scott Mauk wants to tackle the issue head-on. In his first year as the high school’s head athletic officer, Mauk purchased padded helmets for the boys and girls soccer players, enough for each Falcon to wear one during the season. The choice remains theirs, for now. “The soccer head gear was sparked by soccer kids who had injuries and wanted them,” Mauk said. “I wanted to see if they would have a wider application and if we could reduce risk to injury by using them for most if not all players.” The effects of concussions and other head injuries are at the front of national health concerns, especially among student athletes. Junior Seau, a former NFL linebacker who played for the San Diego Chargers and New England Patriots, committed suicide recently and it has been argued his mental health was affected by numerous head injuries during his career. More locally, the Falcon boys soccer team took a hit in the 2011 season when forward

Padded head protection like these worn by Falcon boys soccer players Cameron Coupe, River Ellis and Calvin Shimada may reduce the severity and frequency of head injuries at South Whidbey High School. Noah Moeller, now a senior, suffered a concussion during a match and was forced to miss the second half of the season, including the playoffs. Keeping kids safe has become a paramount objective for Mauk and the Falcon

athletics department. In April, he hosted a concussion expert from www.sports concussions.org to explain the dangers and increasing frequency of head injuries. “We love sports,” said Jean Rickerson, the CEO of sportsconcussions.org.

“There’s nothing that we do or the work that we do that is geared toward stopping football or changing soccer or anything.” One of her group’s aims is to educate athletes, parents and coaches about the signs and symptoms of a

concussion. While 80 percent of concussions — the result of sudden acceleration or deceleration of the head or body — heal within three weeks, Rickerson said, some may last longer and can be hard to identify if there isn’t an immediate blackout. Her son suffered a concussion while playing football a few years ago, he stayed on the field, was able to run several plays at quarterback and complete a touchdown pass. The disorientation was noticed later by his teammates who told their coaches. “Most of the concussed athletes go home, and they go home to parents who don’t know what they’re seeing,” Rickerson said of concussions. Confusion, disorientation, retro and anterograde amnesia, head aches, nausea, vomiting, dizziness, imbalance and slowed thought processes are all signs and symptoms of a concussion. The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention reported between 1.6 and 3.8 million sports-related concussions annually, and 248,418 athletes 19 and younger were sent to the emergency room in 2009. That was a 60 percent increase from 1999. “Concussions are cumulative, and it’s a lifetime cumulation,” Rickerson said.

Recovery time varies, but it requires a whole lot of nothing. No texting. No sports. No reading. Activities that strain the brain cognitively or physically, which is just about everything except rest (and watching “Two and a Half Men”). South Whidbey High School spent about $550 on 16 padded helmets for soccer during the spring sports season. During the boys soccer season, no varsity players missed matches because of head injuries. Mauk said he asked the other Falcon coaches if they wanted to use them and was waiting for their responses. The Falcons are in qualified and concerned hands between Mauk and the school’s nurse, Marcia Statz. They’re working on head injury protocols, such as notifying teachers about possible lingering concussion symptoms that can affect students’ ability to learn. South Whidbey’s athletics and health staff are also coordinating with paramedics and emergency medical technicians that attend most Falcon sports events. A list of athletes with previous head injuries may help first responders treat future head injuries. Ben Watanabe can be reached at bwatanabe@ whidbeynewsgroup.com.

French finishes first in javelin at district championship BY BEN WATANABE Staff record

Far from his farthest throw, Nick French had enough distance to glide to the District 1 title in javelin Friday. French hurled the javelin 168 feet, 2 inches for the district’s best mark. It was his farthest throw in almost two months and beat his closest competitor, Archbishop Murphy senior Mark Schireman, by almost four feet. The district title toss came on French’s third throw in the preliminary heat. He is the only boy from South Whidbey High School to qualify for the state 2A track and field meet. “When I looked up and saw it, it was flying straight and it looked good, so I knew it was going to be a good toss,” French said. “The main goal was to get to state, and that’s all that matters.” The Falcon sophomore has won the javelin event seven times this

year. French’s personal best mark of 178 feet, 3 inches was set March 29 at Sultan High School in a deluge of rain. That one throw has him ranked the second best 2A javelin thrower in Washington behind Michael Johnson of Black Hills High School in Olympia. Johnson’s best throw was recorded at 185 feet, 4 inches. “Nick, absolutely outstanding effort, absolutely well beyond his grade level and where he is in maturity to do what he needs to do, and had a payoff,” said Falcon throwing coach Jeff Greene. “It’s always good when you have a payoff.” “We’re not done yet.” Last year, French finished sixth among 2A javelin throwers with a toss of 160 feet, 11 inches. He has grander aspirations at the state meet May 25-26 at the Mount Tahoma Stadium in Tacoma. “You’ve got to go for first place. In the 180s (feet) would probably

do it,” French said. South Whidbey girls thrower Angelina Berger will join French as the only other Falcon to reach the state finale. Berger, a junior, qualified in the discus Wednesday with a mark of 108 feet, and also qualified in the shot put Friday with a throw of 37 feet, 8.25 inches for a secondplace finish. “I had hurt my leg so I was really nervous to throw shot put,” Berger said. “I knew I made it after my first couple of throws.” After her second throw in the discus Wednesday, Berger rolled her ankle. It affected her javelin throws, which she scratched all three attempts on Friday. Berger began spinning into her discus and shot put throws a couple of weeks earlier, and the motion still has her a bit off balance. “It feels OK, but it feels kind of funny because I got new throwing shoes, too,” she said.

Squalicum junior Gina Flint won the shot put at 45 feet, 7.75 inches. Flint is the top-ranked shot put and discus thrower in 2A, according to www.athletic.net. Berger is also top-10 among 2A school throwers. She holds the third-best mark in the shot put at 39 feet, 4 inches; the eighth-best distance in the discus at 114 feet, 4 inches; and the third-best toss in javelin at 124 feet, 9 inches. She did not qualify for the state meet in the javelin throw. The top four finishers in each event at the district meet advance to the state meet. French will compete in the javelin 10 a.m. Friday, May 25, and Berger will throw the shot put at 4 p.m. The discus is scheduled for Saturday afternoon.

READY TO MOVE?

Whether buying or selling a home, your moving date will be an important consideration. Also called the “possession date”, it is one of the items which is negotiated and included in the contract of sale. Possession dates are most often established in relation to the “closing date”, the date on which the purchase money is paid and the title transfers to the purchasers. In a contract, the possession date may read “upon transfer of title and disbursement of funds”, or merely “at closing.” Is possession always given at closing? Not necessarily. Remember, it is negotiable. It can be whatever date is acceptable to both buyers and sellers. The possession date may be “fourteen days after closing” or “seven days prior to closing.” Notice that possession is still relative to the closing date. If possession occurs on any date other than at closing, a short term lease agreement should be prepared. It should include the amount of any rent to be paid, what happens if the sale is not consummated, who is responsible for damage or needed repairs during the lease, etc. All agreements related to possession should be in writing. Any changes made after the contract has been signed should also be reduced to writing and signed by all parties.

Sunken vessel removal advances in Penn Cove BY JUSTIN BURNETT Staff reporter

Strong currents and the continuation of light oil sheen coming from the 128-foot derelict crab boat that burned and sank in Penn Cove has prompted state officials to solidify and accelerate plans to remove the vessel. Toni Droscher, spokeswoman for the state Department of Natural Resources, said that the agency has wanted to raise and dispose of the Deep Sea since it sank May 13, but that it was proceeding cautiously. However, those plans were made official this week following a joint meeting with representatives from the multitude of state and federal agencies that have been participating in containment and clean up efforts. “We did find that (removing the vessel) is the best route to go,” Droscher said. “We can’t put a boom around that boat forever.” The consensus was reached largely because small sheens have continued to appear above the sunken vessel, though the major diesel leaks are believed to have been contained as of last

week Wednesday. The continued appearance of small or light sheen is not altogether unexpected from a sunken ship the size of the Deep Sea, but it does present the possibility for problems over the long term, he said. “They might stop but when are they going to re-emerge again? This year? Next year?” Walker said. “We really feel this is the best decision for everyone involved,” he said. The source of the sporadic sheens is still unknown, though Walker said it’s most likely from contaminants trapped in the hull of the vessel. Whether it’s oil, diesel or hydraulic fluid that’s floating to the surface is also unclear. Lt. Cmdr. Wade Gough, chief of the U.S. Coast Guard’s incident management division reported that two main tanks could not be reached for inspection and that contaminant recovery remains at about 5,200 gallons. About 3,200 gallons were directly siphoned and picked up by surface skimmer boats and as much as 2,000 sopped up with absorbent pads. Gough said the Coast Guard officially transferred its lead of the clean up and

containment efforts to the state Department of Ecology on Friday. The federal agency will now act largely in an advisory role. According to Ecology spokesman Larry Altose, Ecology is paying for the effort with funds from the state Toxic Control Account, which is funded from taxes on hazardous materials. Altose could not yet say how much has been spent but Gough said the Coast Guard’s direct costs — hiring the diving firm and NRC — tally about $225,000. That compares to about $450,000 in indirect costs, such as keeping a boat on scene and helicopter patrols over the past week. According to Gough, indirect costs aren’t usually covered by the vessel’s owner, in this case Rory Westmoreland, but the decision is up to

the Coast Guard’s National Pollution Funds Center. Droscher said the Department of Natural Resources will be working this week to find a contractor to raise the boat. She estimated that the price tag, including disposal costs, would be about $750,000. “That’s our best guess now,” she said. As for the shellfish closure currently in effect in Penn Cove, Mark Toy, an environmental engineer with the state Department of Health, said he didn’t know when that will be lifted. In order for the popular clam digging cove to be reopened, he said the pollution will need to be totally arrested, surface sheens gone for a period of one week and then testing to confirm shellfish are safe for consumption.

Freeland wine shop owners celebrate ten years BY PATRICIA DUFF Island Life Editor

FREELAND — Walk into Vino Amore wine shop and expect a warm hello from Koa. All 91 pounds of the 3-year-old Golden Retriever is there behind the counter to greet the customers of Brian Plebanek and Gail Liston, who celebrate their 10th anniversary as local wine sellers on Thursday, along with Koa’s third birthday. “A lot has changed since we first opened,” Liston said. And that includes the address of the shop, which has been newly ensconced at its current location at 5575 S. Harbor Ave. #102 for one year. “We have tasted thousands of wines and discovered regions and varietals we didn’t know existed 10 years ago,” Liston added. “Now, it takes much more to impress us. When a rep brings in something we have never tasted, it is quite rare and exciting. The world of wine is constantly changing, and keeping up definitely keeps us on our toes,” she said. When the husband and wife team first got into the business of selling wine, they were green. “Someone told us that we would come to a point when we were dumping wine down the drain,” Plebanek said. They didn’t believe it. “Now we routinely dump old wine down the drain,” he said. “We simply cannot drink everything that comes our way. Reps are constantly bringing us samples, and we have leftovers from tastings most weekends. Yes, there really is such a

Brian Plebanek and Gail Liston, owners of Vino Amore wine shop in Freeland, give some deserved pats to Koa, the official greeter of the shop, who will celebrate his third birthday on the 10th anniversary of the store May 24. thing as too much wine,” he added. Koa is not the only new addition to the shop in recent years. The shop now sells an impressive selection of specialty beers and ales, besides the 1,300 bottles of wine from around the world. “The ales are unique and not available at the local groceries or liquor stores,” Plebanek said. Also on tap is a new growlers

license, which will allow the shop to set up beer on tap. Customers can fill up a 64 ounce jug, or growler, of a favorite tap beer. Growlers will be available to buy and bring back to refill at the shop’s “kegerator,” or beer cooler. Vino Amore managed to survive the downturn in the economy over the past few years and its owners are optimistic, since the first four

months of 2012 have been better for sales than those of 2011. “This is not a business that will make you rich,” Plebanek said, “but we have had some fun perks over the years.” The couple has ventured out to wine country more than once, visiting wineries where they almost always get the royal treatment. “A couple of years ago on an

Oregon trip we were able to stay at Ken Wright’s lovely guest accommodations, free of charge. The place was stocked with all comforts, including gourmet goodies and, of course, wonderful wine. We got a tour of the winery, which is usually closed to the public, as well as lunch with the staff, a barrel tasting, and a visit to the vineyards with our gracious and expert host,” Plebanek said. It’s that same kind of graciousness that Vino Amore likes to pay forward to its customers, including Koa who is, by the way, the shop’s official greeter. “Many of our customers remember when he was a seven-weekold baby, in his little puppy pen behind our old shop,” Liston said. “They have seen him grow from a babe-in-arms to 91 pounds of love,” Plebanek added. Koa is part of the Vino Amore team and goes to work everyday with his owners. “He pops up on the bar to greet customers. He excels at customer relations,” he said. Vino Amore will bring out some special anniversary and Koa birthday deals during its regular weekend “Flight of Five” wine tastings, which are held from noon to 6 p.m. every Saturday and from 12:30 to 4 p.m. Sunday. The $5 tastings include five wines from around the world. The tastings focus on bottles that range in price from $8 to $18. For more information, call 331-7661 or visit www.vinoamore. com.

Then and now: The many occupants of the Voelker House in Langley BY LINDA BEEMAN Contributing writer

Adam Voelker, who lived from 1863 to 1940, was a short, bow-legged man with crossed eyes and stained teeth, according to South Whidbey historian Lorna Cherry. Voelker was a childhood friend of Langley founder Jacob Anthes from Gros Gerau, Germany and he followed Anthes to South Whidbey in 1888 to become his “building boss,” his superintendent of local projects. Before collaborating with Anthes on Langley’s second dock at the foot of Wharf Street, Voelker erected a small, side-gabled house

for himself at Third and DeBruyn in Langley that still stands today. Voelker’s periwinkle house exudes a quiet appeal. It faces Third Street squarely, in characteristic rural fashion, a pristine example of American folk architecture. Called “the Prairie Schooner” by Langley locals in the 1980s, the home brings to mind midwest farmhouses that sit solidly on oceans of plowed fields. Longtime Langley resident Fran Johnson remembers calling Voelker “Mr. Adams” in the 1930s. She says he wore a long coat that nearly swept the ground and that he had a special fondness for the daffodils that surrounded his house.

Voelker died Oct. 18, 1940. In 1941, Richard Luhn auctioned his estate, which included lots 1, 2, 19 and 20 of block 1 in Langley. Les and Nellie Arnold purchased all four lots for $450. The Arnolds resold the lots a year later to Siegfried and Alice Stockholm, who had migrated from Nebraska via California to join their relatives, the Melsens, on South Whidbey. Like Voelker, Siegfried was a builder. He constructed the addition on the back of the Voelker house according to his niece, Kay Stockholm. The Stockholms settled near Lone Lake, but Siegfried’s mother, Marie, See Voelker house, A11

and his sister, Louise, occupied the Voelker house until 1974. In that year, Siegfried left the property to Lulu Anderson, who died a month after inheriting it. Her executor sold the lots to Brandt and Patricia Willson in 1974. Brandt’s family was from North Seattle, but had vacation property on Sunlight Beach. Edgecliff Drive resident Louise Prewitt recalls that ‘there was a big clallam’ with the city because Brandt Willson had pigs on the place to clean out the blackberry bushes.” Brandt Willson verifies that his hogs, Roto and Rooter, did exceptional work at eliminating the blackberries, but that Mayor Manchester found them so offensive he passed a city ordinance banning pigs and swine. Since cows and horses grazed on his neighbors’ properties, Brandt Willson believed his pigs were unfairly singled out. He sued the city and won. Brandt and Patricia, his brothers Kevin and Dennis,

Historic Langley The National Trust for Historic Preservation celebrates its eighth annual National Preservation Month in May. In its Wednesday editions, the Record takes a look back at Langley landmarks in a series of articles by Linda Beeman, vice chair of the Langley Historic Preservation Commission. The commission, in conjunction with Langley’s Main Street Program, has placed historic photographs of Langley in downtown businesses.

Adam Voelker stands in front of his house at Third and DeBruyn streets in 1911. Richard Clyde’s surprise at learning they were all related. “We thought you were a commune,” Clyde told him. They built the adjoining structure in 1976. Kevin Willson lived upstairs, and all the siblings used the ground floor as a metal works studio. “It was a good party house,” Brandt Willson remembers, but in 1979 the Willsons sold it and the studio to Harrison Jones and Deborah McDivitt to finance

the Willsons’ move to the woods. A mixed-media artist, Harrison taught art history and drawing at Cornish College of the Arts in Seattle.

He met McDivitt, a selfdescribed “country girl from South Jersey,” on a summer trip to Colorado. After living in Seattle’s Leschi neighborhood for two years, they

relocated to Whidbey in 1980. Jones loved holidays, especially Thanksgiving. McDivitt remembers huge potlucks for 20-plus people spilling outdoors. They won the Langley Christmas decoration contest in 1986 by outlining the house, windows and roof in white lights, the bushes with red lights, and the fence in green. “We started decorating in October,” McDivitt said. Kelley Choate, owner of downtown Langley’s Museo Gallery from 1996 through 2005, purchased the house from Jones and McDivitt in 1996. David Gignac bought the adjacent studio a few months later. Adam Voelker’s house survives as a Langley landmark. An unbroken thread of craftsman/artist-owners enriched its history. It is an icon of an idealized America.

Freeland’s Holmes Harbor Golf Course hits market again BY BEN WATANABE Staff reporter

The Holmes Harbor Golf Course is on the market again. Recent owner Kevin Hanchett said his business group Onyxx Capital 1 is looking for an owner-operator to purchase the 18-hole course in Freeland. “Neither my partner nor I have any experience in

running a golf course and we don’t want to learn by trial and error,” Hanchett said in an email. “Our goal was to be a landlord for both the course and the restaurant.” Hanchett and his unnamed partner purchased the disused course in July 2011 from Holmes Harbor Community Partners, about one year after it closed. At the start,

he admitted he did not know how to run a restaurant or a golf course. He had plans to develop the dock slips to make the course a dock-andplay style golf course, similar to the Port Ludlow Resort. The Edmonds resident, who also has a home on Mutiny Bay, hoped to find a course manager to revitalize the restaurant and greens. In October 2011,

OB Sports Golf Management, Development and Consulting was contracted to review the property’s opportunities for improvement and development. After months of searching without success, Hanchett and his partner pulled out. Holmes Harbor Golf Course has a history rife with financial problems. The previous owners,

Holmes Harbor Community Partners, had to close the course because of the high costs and lowered revenue as the economy dropped. The Holmes Harbor Sewer District offered to purchase the course, but Columbia

Bank rejected the offer on the $2.6 million property. The course was built in 1994 by Jack Sikma, the former Seattle SuperSonics basketball player, who sold the 54-acre greens in 2003.
