Husband held on $5 million bail for wife’s murder Greenbank couple owned Freeland pizza shop By JESSIE STENSLAND Staff reporter

Greenbank resident Kathie Baker was hit in the head, possibly with a ball-peen hammer, and strangled with a ligature before her body was wrapped in a tarp and dumped in a ravine, according to court records. Her husband, 61-yearold Robert “Al” Baker, was arrested Saturday in connection with the brutal and bizarre case. A judge in Island County Superior Court set his bail at $5 million Monday after finding that there’s probable cause to believe he committed first-degree murder. The couple owns Harbor Pizzeria in Freeland and were known to work there together since opening it last year. They both also worked for Raytheon Corporation, a major defense contractor. Senior Deputy Prosecutor Eric Ohme said in court that Al Baker is a scientist and travels internationally through his work, including spending part of each year in Antarctica. Detective Ed Wallace with the Island County Sheriff’s Office said Kathie Baker was last seen alive on June 2. Investigators discovered her tarp-covered body in a ravine in her backyard June 9. Island County Sheriff Mark Brown commended his deputies and detectives

for quickly getting to the bottom of the mysterious disappearance, but he said they are scratching their heads at the unusual facts of the case. The Bakers appeared to be a happy couple and it seemed that little effort was made to clean up after the murder. “It just doesn’t make a lot of sense,” he said. Kathie, 53, was a highlevel computer programmer and telecommuted from her home on Silver Cloud Lane in Greenbank. Kathie’s boss at Raytheon reported to police on June 7 that he couldn’t contact her and asked for a welfare check. See Murder, A2

murder CONTINUED FROM A1 Deputies went to the Bakers’ home and spoke to Al Baker, who claimed his wife had flown to Denver for her job; he said he dropped her off at the airport June 3. But a deputy again contacted her boss, who said she wasn’t scheduled to do any work at the facility. During the investigation, deputies discovered that another woman was staying at the house. The 52-yearold woman had flown from Alaska and had arrived June 3. She said she knew the Bakers through their work in Antarctica. The woman said Al Baker had made it clear that he wanted a romantic relationship with her and had said his marriage with Kathie was over, according to a report by Detective Mark Plumberg with the Island County Sheriff’s Office. Based on inconsistencies with his story, the deputies and a detective returned to the house and interviewed Al Baker again on June 8. He gave “improbable stories about

the whereabouts of his wife” and then stopped answering questions, Plumberg wrote in his report. Al Baker gave the deputies and detectives permission to search his home. As he entered the house, Plumberg immediately noticed “a vivid stain,” later identified as blood, on the living room carpet. “The stain was long and consistent with something being dragged over the carpet,” Plumberg wrote. The deputies followed the drag marks to the kitchen, down a flight of stairs and to the garage. They found what was later identified as blood stains on the cement floor of the garage. Upstairs, a deputy also found a small pool of blood on the master bedroom carpet, according to Plumberg’s report. Based on the evidence, the detectives obtained a search warrant. Members of the state patrol’s Crime Scene Response Team arrived at the house June 9 to help process the scene. Wallace said the drag marks led in the direction of a small ravine behind a woodshed in the backyard

10:15 a.m. Saturday. She was wrapped in a blue tarp and bound with rope and bungee cords. A member of the response team found a ball-peen hammer inside a garbage can in the garage; the hammer had hairs attached. The next day, the autopsy team compared a circular wound on Kathie’s head to the hammer. Plumberg observed that the wound was consistent with a single blow from a hammer. Island County Coroner Robert Bishop said the cause of death was blunt force trauma to the head with ligature strangulation.

“Both of the causes are lethal,” he said. “We are not going to split hairs over what came first.” Bishop said Kathie Baker had been dead more than 72 hours, but it’s not possible to be more accurate beyond that. Wallace said the woman who was visiting Al Baker noticed the blood, but was told it was from a dog.

nice person. Harbor Pizzeria was closed Monday. A printed sign on the door read in blue letters, “Sorry for the inconvenience But we will be closed for the day in Memory of Kathie Baker.” A small memorial was set up on a 2-foot high metal table with a glass top. A couple of photos of Kathie stood with a few flower bouquets. Business at the nearby Midway Cafe was nil during the lunch rush, and employees said it was unusually slow that morning, too. Midway Cafe has only been open since January, but the employees said they met Kathie and she came in frequently for lunch and was “super nice” and “sweet” and ordered hot chocolate with extra cocoa. The pizzeria was open around 7 p.m. Sunday, according to one of Midway’s employees, who said she drove by that night. Ron Eaton, a loan officer with People’s Bank in the building next to the pizzeria, said the Bakers were “normal folks.” He said his co-workers and he ate at the restaurant often. Eaton said when he arrived at work, “Al” Baker’s truck would be out front and Al would be working inside by 8 or 8:30 a.m., but “Kath” Baker worked every day at the pizzeria. “She was a really nice gal, always had a smile,” Eaton said.

Mussel lovers rejoice as Penn Cove reopens for harvest By JUSTIN BURNETT Staff reporter

After being shutdown for nearly a month, Coupeville’s famous mussel farm is once again harvesting in Penn

Cove. Ian Jefferds, owner of Penn Cove Shellfish, said state regulators gave the farm the green light Friday afternoon and the first harvest in about

four weeks began in earnest over the weekend. When asked if he was relieved the closure was finally over, Jefferds said, “Absolutely. Now we see if we can make up for lost time.” The state Department of Health closed Penn Cove for shellfish harvesting on May 15 following the burning and sinking of a 128-foot fishing boat. It had been illegally anchored just outside the mussel rafts for more than a month. More than 5,000 gallons of fuel were recovered from the ship and on the surface after it went down but not before the fishery was closed. The derelict vessel was raised earlier this month, June 3, at a cost of about $2.7 million. While some areas were reopened for shellfish harvesting two days after the raising, the majority of Penn Cove wasn’t opened for commercial and recreation harvesting until Friday. Madrona Beach remains closed as slight contamination was detected in the latest round of odor and taste testing. The closure has been tough on the renowned mussel farm. The company lost a day of sales, representing over $40,000, the day after the ship sank. The farm was

Despite the hardship, Jefferds said the disaster could have been a lot worse and expressed gratitude to

all the local, state and federal agencies that worked for weeks to control pollution and remove the vessel. Jefferds said he hasn’t yet tallied all the financial damages the farm incurred from the sinking and closure. For

Island County proceeds with plan for new road Whidbey Fire and Rescue’s headquarters on 1164 Race Road. The proposed road would connect Race and Houston roads on Central Whidbey. The idea is to create an efficient alternative route for Highway 525 in the event it was blocked or closed in an emergency. According to Bill Oakes, director of public works, having an alternate access for that part of the highway is essential as a closure of that part of the highway would essentially split Whidbey

By JUSTIN BURNETT Staff reporter

Island County is laying plans to build its first new road in decades and officials are looking for the public’s help. While the start of construction is likely years away, Island County Public Works is in the process of designing the new road and is hoping to gather input from the community at an open house next week. The meeting will run from 6 to 8 p.m. Thursday, June 21, and will be held at Central

Island in two. Aside from being a major inconvenience for motorists, it could present a major public safety issue, Oakes said. “A block in Highway 525 would isolate a significant portion of Whidbey from our primary medical facility,” Oakes said. It would also restrict the response capabilities of fire departments and first responders, sever public transportation service that connects one end of the island to the other and cutoff access to the ferry docks in

Clinton and Coupeville. The ramifications of such a closure have been known for some time and county officials have been working on a secondary access for that section of Highway 525 for some time. Several years ago, six options were studied and a preferred route was established. However, the exact path is not set in stone and public works is sincerely looking for public input, Oakes said. “The general area is identified but we can still make

changes at this point,” Oakes said. Under the proposed orientation, the road would run through or affect up to 40 parcels, he said. About one-third of the street would be made up of what is now Kempton Place, a private, dead-end gravel drive. The remainder would be constructed in what is now forest and grasslands. The exact path hasn’t been determined yet but four routes are under consideration. All would intersect Highland Trail and be built largely on

two 10-acre parcels owned by the county. The entire road would total between 1.4 and 1.5 miles depending on the route selected. Oakes estimated the total project cost at about $6 million. But as the county only has funding for design, permitting and right of way expenses, it could be years before construction begins. In past meetings, some people have objected that the new road would open up more Whidbey Island land to developers.

Lighting project scheduled for Coupeville schools Builder seated on planning board By NATHAN WHALEN Staff reporter

A project will take place this summer that will eventually save the Coupeville School District thousands of dollars in energy costs. The school board last month approved a contract with C. Thornton Lighting to replace the lighting fixtures in district buildings except the high school. The project will cost more

than $159,000 to complete; however, the Coupeville School District will pay $69,255 while funding from Puget Sound Energy will pay the remainder. Superintendent Patty Page said the lighting project had been on the district’s radar for years, only there wasn’t money to pay for it. She said the school district would go through the retrofit only if money became available.

The school district tried to get state money from a small school repair grant, but the district didn’t receive funding. A combination of a higherthan-expected student enrollment, a conservative budget for the current school year and the matching PSE grant was enough for the school district to move forward. The lighting ballasts will be replaced in the elementary school, middle school, performing arts center, the multi-purpose room, the high school annex and the administration building. Coupeville High School, which was completed five years ago, isn’t part

of the lighting retrofit. In addition to the energy savings, the school district needs to replace the lighting system in the older buildings because the type of ballasts aren’t being produced anymore, Page said. She said the energy savings over the next three-tofive years will be enough to repay the money spent on the school district’s portion of the project. Work will start on the lighting project once the school year concludes and will be complete by the time the 2012-2013 school year starts in September.

‘Sting’ finds 14 living in Oak Harbor house, 7 arrested House deemed ‘unsafe to occupy’ due to sewage, garbage By JESSIE STENSLAND Staff reporter

Oak Harbor police conducted a drug sting operation early Saturday morning at a house that has been the source of scores of complaints from neighbors over the last couple of years. Detective Sgt. Teri Gardner said police officers found 14 people living at the small rambler on the 1600 block of NE Fourth Avenue, including two in a camper and one person in a shed in the backyard. Seven people were arrested on suspicion of drug-related crimes, though the detectives found nothing more than a misdemeanor amount of marijuana and drug paraphernalia. The city’s code enforcement officer posted an “unsafe to occupy” notice after raw sewage was found in a crawl space and “excessive garbage” littered the backyard. Yet while neighbors say the noise and constant traffic at the house was a disturbance, they also have sympathy for the owner of the home. Brenda Elder, 44, was arrested on suspicion of unlawful use of a building for drug purposes and possession of marijuana. Neighbor Marilyn Smith said that Elder gave refuge to homeless young people and others in need of help. “There may have been

mental illness going on,” Smith said. “Maybe this is someone who fell through the cracks and is vulnerable and being taken advantage of.” “It’s basically a sad situation, I think,” she added. Other neighbors didn’t want their names published out of fear of reprisals, but they offered stories of teenagers wandering the neighborhood, loud music, people screaming at night, graffiti, and cars coming and going. One woman said Elder used to be a good neighbor, took care of the house and was raising kids, but then the children went away a few years ago and everything deteriorated. Gardner said the police, with assistance from the Naval Criminal Investigative Service, responded to neighbors’ concern about the house, which was known as a place where people would allegedly go to use drugs. The detectives were able to get a warrant for the house based on drug buys conducted by an undercover informant. The police department’s High-Risk Entry Team served the warrant early Saturday morning. They arrived in the armored “Peacekeeper” vehicle and threw a “flashbang” diversionary device into the house. Aside from waking people up, Gardner said the device was meant to protect the officers in case there were weapons present. Elder was arrested and released. Six others were arrested on possession of drug paraphernalia. Two

The house has been the source of complaints from neighbors upset about noise and traffic. people were picked up on warrants. In addition, Gardner said officers recovered items taken in two burglaries within the city. “Several neighbors stopped by to thank us,” Gardner said. Dave Anderson, the city’s code enforcement officer, was called to inspect the house. He found raw sewage in the crawl space, possibly from a leak in the plumbing system. Also, he said the amount of garbage in the

backyard was a health hazard. Anderson posted the house with an “unsafe to occupy” notice, which means people aren’t allowed to live in the house until the sewage and garbage problems are fixed. People who’ve been living there are able to retrieve their belongings. The city turned off the water to the house. Anderson said he understands that a plumber has been out to the house. He said he will inspect the house

again once the sewage and garbage is gone and then

determine whether to take down the notice.

IN OUR OPINION

A campaign promise kept Oak Harbor Mayor Scott Dudley didn’t waste any time following through with one important campaign promise: He said he would start televising standing committee meetings and it wasn’t long after he took office in January that it was a done deal. Using his discretionary mayoral funds, Dudley commenced the televising of those committee meetings composed of a minority of city council members dealing with particular areas of government. There are four standing committees: Finance, Government Services, Public Safety and Public Works. Each deals with its own important area of civic government and is regularly updated by city staff. Oak Harbor’s political junkies no doubt love the programs. Finance Director Doug Merriman, for example, presents a wealth of financial information on how the city’s budget is tracking. It was surprising to recently hear that sales tax revenue is down some $125,000 from what was projected. Since Merriman always makes conservative projections, this is not good news. Finance Committee members now know to watch the sales tax revenues closely. City Services Direct Steve Powers, speaking to the Government Services Committee, gave a thorough presentation on the costs involved with looking for Native American artifacts at the Pit Road site where dirt from the Pioneer Way project was dumped. It’s always interesting to hear updates from the fire chief and police chief on what’s happening in their departments. Members of the Public Safety Standing Committee ask good questions and the setting allows detailed answers, as opposed to a regular city council meeting when time is of the essence. Finance Committee meetings are shown on cable channel 10 Sunday at 2 p.m., Wednesday at 10 a.m. and 8 p.m., and Friday at 6 p.m.; Government Services Standing Committee meetings are shown Sunday at noon and 10 p.m., Wednesday at 4 p.m., and Friday at 8 a.m. and 8 p.m.; Public Safety Standing Committee meetings are shown Sunday at 4 p.m., Wednesday at 8 a.m. and 6 p.m., and Friday at 2 p.m.; Public Works Standing Committee meetings are shown Sunday at 10 a.m. and 8 p.m., Wednesday at 2 p.m., and Friday at noon and 10 p.m. The meetings are well worth watching and one of the best parts is, there’s no commercials.

Letters to the editor Limit health care in schools

I have always supported our public schools wherever I lived but not now; not after reading a recent school levy article. I support schools for educating, activities to enhance the development, athletics, music, performing arts and social activities. I oppose attempting to turn the public school system into providing medical care. The school nurse is to provide immediate emergency medical care and advice. Now some want to expand it into providing regular medical services. Not on my tax dollars. My family is responsible for that, not the taxpayers. The nation is facing bankruptcy from taking on all the social programs, spending billions taking care of a tremendous number of people who have been brought

up to feel they are entitled to freeload for life’s needs. We are facing what the European nations are suffering: Bankruptcy! This proposal for our school system to assume family responsibilities and duties is just another step down that path. John W. Martin Oak Harbor

The Deception Pass Park Foundation was formed in 2005 by a group of park neighbors with a mission to provide support for education, interpretation, and resource protection at Deception Pass State Park. With dramatic state park budget cuts, the ability of the park to meet demands of the busiest park and largest campground complex in the state make our needs even greater in 2012.

letter to the editor Hospital gem in our midst One recent Friday morning I found myself in the Whidbey General emergency room. While I had spent many hours there on prior occasions with friends and family members, this time it was my body on the line. It was me lying on the gurney with lines attached, in great pain and worried about what might be happening. So, to be clear, kidney stones are nowhere near as much fun as they sound. The emergency room nurses were not only professional and efficient, they managed to maintain a light hearted attitude throughout. Throughout this ordeal, though, one moment stands out. That’s when Linda Gipson, Ph.D., WGH’s new chief nursing officer, dropped by to see how everything was going. I had worked with senior military officers for years, and I knew when she walked in the room that she had command experience. She was very gracious and answered questions we had about the situation at hand. It was obvious, too, that the nurses I met were very pleased she was in charge. I should mention here that such visits to patient rooms are not normal. In large medical centers patients just don’t see the administrative decision makers – instead they are typically treated like num-

bers, in and out the door. But this visit highlighted the very strength of a small, community hospital: it can focus on quality personal care. The fact that Whidbey General has been able to hire someone with Dr. Gipson’s skill set, as well as her desire to maintain a clinical focus, is truly amazing. It makes me very interested to see the direction our hospital will take in the future. I retired recently after 25 years, having served on the staff of six major medical centers as a speech pathologist in the Bay Area and Europe. After arriving on Whidbey Island, I decided to work at Whidbey General on a parttime basis. Like most people I figured a small county hospital was going to be just a step behind the times. But after the two-day staff orientation, I walked away stunned. This was without a doubt the best introduction to a hospital I had ever received. I was intrigued. Later, I was equally impressed by the staff members I met who, although highly trained and experienced, had chosen to come to Whidbey --- sometimes accepting a cut in pay --for the same reason so many of us did. It’s a great place to live and raise a family. My message to you: Don’t wait to support our community hospital until you need to use it. If you do, this wonderful facility could very easily disappear or get swallowed up by the large profit-driven corporations waiting for it to fail. Step up and help make a great place even better.

Investing in a brighter future for Oak Harbor schools By Rick Schulte Superintendent of schools

The Oak Harbor school board is asking our community to step up and fix what has become an increasingly dire situation in our schools. Three years of massive state cuts and six years of shrinking federal Impact Aid have taken their toll on students. We made the hard cuts necessary to balance budgets for a few years. But these cuts cannot continue for the next five years without severe problems for students. For the last eight months, we held public forums to review in detail what’s been lost, what we can get by without, and what is truly hurting kids. The 2014 to 2017 school levy, replacing the 2010 to 2013 levy, will restore about half of what’s been lost, and protect those programs at risk that we cannot operate without.

Sound off The specifics of the levy proposal can be found online at www.ohsd. net, so I am not going to detail it here. Instead, this is the story of where we are today and how we got here. Our schools (the buildings) are in great overall shape, thanks to the commitment by voters 17 years ago to turn things around in Oak Harbor. At that time, we had serious structural issues with eight of our nine schools and a reputation (especially among Navy families) that education in Oak Harbor was second rate. Over several years, we not only turned that image around, but managed to leverage our local contribution with state matching funds to do much more than expected. Each project was finished on time and

on budget. Our schools are now valued community assets, as seen most clearly in the newly redone high school. Ten years ago, Oak Harbor approved its first school levy. I don’t think anyone realized what a massive positive impact this would have on education. It did amazing things for our kids: starting our hot lunch program; lengthening the elementary school day; supporting Advanced Placement classes at the high school; establishing a ratio of one computer for every five kids. Again, we did exactly as promised. It’s a history and a record we are proud of. Yet, our levy today remains among the very lowest in the state, providing less than a third of the state average and far less than other military communities. Even when adding Impact Aid and state matching funds, Oak Harbor stu-

dents receive from $700 to $1,000 less per student than our neighbors or other military communities. When the economy dropped out from under us, every school district in the state felt the sting of state budget cuts. But Oak Harbor got a double dose. Impact Aid, provided by Congress in lieu of paying tax on federal property, shrunk considerably at the same time. Our neighbors did not suffer this loss. Other communities were able to dull the sting of budget cuts with help from their local levies. Most of them passed an increase in their local levy collection to make up for state cuts. Oak Harbor’s levy is much too small to provide that kind of cushion, so cuts here go deeper and they hurt more, compounded by a smaller beginning levy and federal cuts on top of state cuts. The future for our schools –- and for our 5,600 students –- is seri-

ously at risk. The levy request is an increase, but it is affordable. With the help of Impact Aid and state match, it will put us in a respectable position when compared to other districts, yet it will still be well below what other communities pay. Even this levy increase will result in a local levy collection that is just about half the levy dollars per student of our comparison districts. Every year hundreds of military families are assigned to NAS Whidbey. When choosing a community, these newcomers look for decent housing and good schools as the two biggest factors in making their choice. Investing in schools pays off for everyone. It’s good for students, good for families, good for our military, good for business and good for property values.

Reach out and touch a bird at the Greenbank Farm By PATRICIA DUFF Staff writer

A bird in the hand is worth … well, it’s worth a trip to Greenbank Farm. Especially since “Zeb” the hawk will be there. Whidbey Audubon Society members have been working hard with professional taxidermist Matt Klope preparing specimens for hands-on examination at “Bird in Hand — the Grand Finale” from 7 to 9 p.m. Thursday, June 14 at Greenbank Farm. After a year of various programs that focus on stewardship and education, the Whidbey Audubon Society ends its season with an exciting opportunity for the whole

family. Bird in Hand allows bird lovers to get an up close and personal look at the wide variety of the birds on Whidbey Island. Participants can touch the taxidermied birds and have the experience of what a Great Horned Owl’s feathers feel like, or the feel of a raptor’s talons. “What I enjoy most is being able to see birds really up close to where you can actually see feather patterns, feet and bills or beaks;” Klope said, “the things you just can’t see through a spotting scope.” On hand will be more than 400 specimens of the full gamut of island birds, from passerines and raptors to all the seabirds and shore birds,

ducks, geese and others. Bird in Hand will allow young and old alike to study closely the bird specimens that have been carefully preserved by hard working volunteers under the tutelage of Klope. Klope is a U.S. Naval wildlife biologist and owner of Whidbey Island Taxidermy. He started the collection. “Matt has a taxidermy permit from the Department of Fish and Wildlife, which allows him to be in possession of the expired birds,” said Whidbey Audubon Society member Robin Llewellyn, one of the organizers of the event. “A number of the birds also belong to the Whidbey Audubon Society which holds a Fish and Wildlife Salvage permit through Sarah Schmidt, past president of the Whidbey Audubon Society,” Llewellyn added. Being able to see the delicate feathers is the best way to learn to identify birds and to admire their beauty,” Llewellyn said. “Some of the most beautiful colors and patterns found in nature are found on birds,” she said.

bers will answer questions and offer interesting facts about the birds. A powerful microscope and magnifiers will also be available to observe the feather structure of the birds. “Looking at the feathers of an owl demonstrates just how these birds are able to fly without making a sound,” Llewellyn said. Klope’s flock of specimen preparers includes Tillie Scruton, Sarah Schmidt, Lisa Harkins, Janet Stein, Oz Allen, Dan Klope and Sarah Templin, who in the course of the past two years, have painstakingly turned dead birds into learning tools. “The Audubon members have been so good at collecting and correctly labeling birds, that any extras we get are sent to the Division of Birds, National Museum of Natural History, Smithsonian Institution,” Klope said. “So, many of the members have their names on a specimen at the Smithsonian. That is very cool,” he added. “This hands on experience is very educational and lets us all know more about the curious world of birds around us,” Llewellyn said. As a special guest, the society is honored to welcome Julia Parrish, or one of the members of her Coastal Observation and Seabird Survey Team (COASST) team from the University of Washington, to answer any questions about seabirds. Falconer Dr. Mark Borden will also be present, accompanied by his living Harris hawk, “Zeb.” The event is free and open to the public.

2012 Wolves dive into the real world By NATHAN WHALEN Staff reporter

Friends and family crammed into a gymnasium Friday night to see more than 70 students of the Class of 2012 finish their education at Coupeville High School. The light-hearted affair on an early June evening offered students a chance to recall experiences that culminated in their graduation from the small high school. Valedictorian Nathaniel Foote in his speech noted that Coupeville residents were polite and always willing to look after the kids. He remembered when he was younger his parents received three calls from people concerned about the way Foote and his sister were crossing the street. “That’s when we realized spies are everywhere,” Foote joked during his speech during the ceremony. He thanked teachers for the opportunities they gave him in school and the accepting environment in Coupeville.

“It’s OK to be different and still fit in at Coupeville High School,” Foote said. He highlight several lessons his classmates taught him. He learned to “breathe when you’re reading out loud, especially when you’re reading a long paragraph,” “don’t say ‘dammit’ over the loudspeaker;” and “society is like a table.” Salutatorian Tatiana Boonstra thanked her parents, who were spending their wedding anniversary attending her graduation. She described Coupeville High School as a “slightly dysfunctional family, but a family nonetheless.” With graduation, her classmates will start down various roads, which include everything from college, serving in the armed forces or diving straight into work. “Everyone has the path and purpose and I hope they find enjoyment in whatever they do,” Boonstra said. “I will miss the extended family we have created,” Boonstra said. In addition to speaking, Boonstra sang

Valedictorian Nathaniel Foote talks about what he learned from his parents, residents, students and teachers in Coupeville. “Vienna” by Billy Joel, while senior Evan Chiles played the piano. Two teachers, Paul Mendes and Ryan Grenz, spoke during Friday’s ceremony. Mendes remarked how slang has changed since he was in high school. Such phrases as “groovy,” “give me some skin” and “I can dig it,” have been replaced with such words as “wassup,” “that was sick,” and “aw snap.” He added that “wassup” has even been reduced to “’sup” — a triple contraction. His favorite slang word these days is “represent,” because you always want to ask “what.” One thing he said he represents is his father. He choked up while describ-

ing his father, who recently passed away. Mendes also recalled lessons he’s learned and taught as a soccer player and coach. Some pearls of wisdom he shared included “win with grace, lose with dignity; respect all but fear none; and winning isn’t everything, but the will to win is everything.” Fellow teacher Ryan Grenz shared some lessons he’s learned from the Class of 2012. “I’m going to dazzle you with your own words,” Grenz said, recalling curious questions asked of him, such as “what is infinity minus two” and “which way was I falling.” Seventy-one students grad-

Sports briefs CONTINUED FROM A9 Maggio, in addition to being Coupeville’s line coach the past two years, coached in the Oak Harbor Youth Football League for eight years, five as head coach of the senior team (13 and 14 year olds). He was an assistant at Oak Harbor High School for two years, including the Wildcats’ state championship run in 2006. Maggio’s new coaching staff includes holdover assistant Dustin Van Velkinburgh, who will be the defensive coordinator; former Oak Harbor players Josh Higbee and Andy Haag; and Nick Asinsin, who played in Hawaii. Maggio hopes to build on the off-season weight program Silver started and to increase interest in middle school football. He said, “We are already seeing the number of middle school kids participating in football growing. They are excited to play for Coupeville.” Maggio said one of his goals is for his players “to compete in everything we do, every play, every practice, and in every drill.”

Cheer coach Robin Gohn called the old banner “pathetic,” “held together with hot glue” and “faded.” A new 10-by-12 banner costs $1,800 (or more for a larger model), with a $300 discount if ordered by June 30.

Six seek hospital board position By JESSIE STENSLAND Staff reporter

Whidbey General Hospital commissioners are scheduled to interview and choose a new commissioner the morning of Friday, June 15. The appointee will replace Dr. Paul Zaveruha, who quit the board in April in order to devote more of his time to surgery. Six candidates for the position submitted resumes. The candidates have to live in District 2, which covers Central Whidbey.

Among the candidates is Dr. Mark Borden, a Coupeville resident and currently an emergency room physician at Swedish Hospital. Borden has become an outspoken critic of Whidbey General Hospital administration, and particularly Zaveruha, after leaving his job as the emergency services director. He has said he was forced out of the job. The other candidates are Robert King, a retired accountant; Georgia Gardner, an accountant;

Dennis Bright of Heartfelt Farms; Bill Wiegand, an insurance consultant; and Vin Sherman, an Island County employee. The special meeting is set for 9 a.m., June 15 in Conference Room B of the hospital. The hospital commissioners are scheduled to interview the candidates, hold an executive session to evaluate qualifications of the applicants and then vote to appoint a new commissioner in the open forum.

One audit finding for school district By REBECCA OLSON Staff reporter

One finding during the annual audit by the Washington State Auditor’s Office will have little effect on the Oak Harbor School District. The auditor brought to the school district’s attention last year that staff needed to better comply with record keeping issues surrounding two federal programs, Title I, a program to help students at risk of not meeting state academic standards, and spe-

cial education. Since some staff members work in both programs, they have to keep very close track of how many minutes they spend on each, said Superintendent Rick Schulte. “That was a relatively minor thing that was already corrected,” Schulte said. After the auditor brought it to the district’s attention last year, Schulte said they took measures to correct it and the auditor had to bring it up again this year because the problem had lasted for half a year.

“It did not result in any harm or financial risk,” Schulte said. There was never any allegation that the staff weren’t doing their work in these programs; it was just a matter of documentation, Schulte said. “We are a very low-risk district because we’ve had very good audits for a very long time,” Schulte said, adding that the auditor said the Oak Harbor School District is used as a model for other districts due to its good record keeping.

Resilience is celebrated by OHHS Class of 2012

Rebecca Olson/Whidbey News-Times

Matthew Reith, Brianna Thrift, Sara Anderson, Felicia Unzuetta-Hammel and other Oak Harbor High School seniors throw their caps after being declared graduates. By REBECCA OLSON Staff reporter

The day finally arrived for Oak Harbor High School seniors to ceremoniously step into the world as the Class of 2012 graduated Monday, June 11. Students lined up before the ceremony, making last minute adjustments to caps and snapping photos with friends as crowds of family members found seats in the high school stadium. The sun showed its face for most of the ceremony, with only a light breeze to tug at caps and gowns as the students marched around the track and took their seats facing proud family and friends. Corey Johnson, president of the Oak Harbor School Board, spoke first, mentioning students whose parents are busy in the community, from school board members to volunteers to employees. “Now it’s your turn to step up to this responsibility,” Johnson told the graduates, challenging them to get involved in the community that helped them through hard times. “Please pay it forward. Get involved.” The first of two valedictorians, Ciara Hu, spoke next, commemorating the graduates’ parents for seeing them through it all, from their “burbles and coos” to the unique individuals they are today. “Not achieving your goals is not failure. Not setting your goals is failure,”

Hu said, adding that when they meet one of these goals, it’s like “defeating a dungeon boss” in a video game and advancing to the next level of life. “Let’s remember to dream a little bigger, strive a little further and make this world better for all,” Hu said. The speaker chosen by the class, Jasmine CaseSmith, talked of her resiliency during the tough time when her mother was admitted to Harborview Intensive Care Unit this school year. She did her college applications to the “dings and beeps of my mom’s medical machines” and worked hard at a time when it would have been easy to give up. Resiliency isn’t just what the graduates need in the future, it’s what got them to where they are now, Case-Smith said, welcoming the Class of 2012 to the beginning of the rest of their lives. The second valedictorian, Tucker Lundstrom, explained that success depends on resiliency. “Only you can make yourself stronger through trial and strife,” Lundstrom said, speaking about his work to make weightlifting records and the perseverance of the football team as it won all but two games this season despite being underestimated. “I challenge you, in fact I implore you, to be tenacious in everything you do,” Lundstrom said.

Brianna Otruba gets a hug as the new graduates file out of the stadium after the ceremony. Dwight Lundstrom, high school principal, applauded the Class of 2012 for earning $4.9 million in scholarship offers to colleges, military academies and from the community. Resiliency was the word of the evening as he congratulated the students for thriving despite being the only class to spend two years split between the north and main campuses of the high school while the new school was under construction. “Your success is dependent on you,” Dwight Lundstrom said, adding that it’s up to the graduates to define success for themselves now. Superintendent Rick Schulte noted that this year

is the 100th anniversary of Oak Harbor schools and in looking back, he realized that two areas those students were graded on were Latin class and deportment, very different from the physics and math students study today. While Latin might not have been much help to those students, deportment was, and should be to the Class of 2012. No matter what their futures hold, treating others with respect and dignity and conducting themselves with integrity and honor is of utmost importance to the graduates, Schulte said. Then it was time for the students to receive their diplomas to the cheering of their family and friends. Students hugged and

After all the names were called, the students moved their cords, threw their caps into the air and cheered. “It was good, it was really exciting,” Hu said after embracing family members following the ceremony. “I thought it was really nice,” her mother, Janet Tipping Hu, said of the graduation. “The weather was the nicest out of the three I’ve been to.” Jack Tipping, Ciara Hu’s uncle, congratulated the Hus on having three valedictorians at past graduations. “It’s unbelievable,” Tipping said, adding with a laugh that as far as speakers at the ceremony go, “the superintendent was the next best after Ciara.” Graduate Sarah Morical

received hugs from family members, including her mom, Oak Harbor native Tina Ford. “I am so proud of her. She is very well prepared,” Ford said. Morical is heading into the Navy to be an IT specialist. “It’s taken a long time to get here and I’m really happy it’s finally here!” Morical said of graduation. Sherrie and Mark Dieter congratulated their son, Ryan Dieter, their first child to graduate. “There were a lot of smiles,” Sherrie Dieter said, adding how proud she is of her son. “Knowing that you’re done, it’s a great feeling,” Ryan Dieter said, adding that now he just has to prepare to attend the University of Texas - Arlington in the fall. “It’s exciting!”

13-year-old grows donation for cancer survivors again Nathan Richardson’s donation to the Relay for Life of Whidbey and cancer survivors took over a year to grow. But he again donated 18 inches of his hair at Relay for Life on June 2. He chose to donate during this event because his grandmother, a cancer survivor, gave him the inspiration to grow his hair for others. He has been a participant in Relay for four years. As a 13-year-old boy, it has been an exceptionally tough challenge for Richardson to grow his hair so long since he is sometimes mistaken as a

female, he said. However, he endured the misconception to positively affect the life of someone fighting cancer. He wanted to grow as much hair as possible so he has not had any hair cut in over a year. Richardson chose to have his hair cut this year since he will attend Oak Harbor High School in September and has requested to join NJROTC. Pantene and the American Cancer Society have partnered together to distribute wigs to cancer patients across the country.

Release provided by the Committee to Elect Phil Collier County Commissioner

Swan Lake: death knell for fish

Oak Harbor, March 21, 2012... A forum was held at the Heller Road Fire Station on March 21 to discuss why Island County should approve conducting an Enhancement Tidal Connectivity Assessment study of Swan Lake, where the road bends at the western most part of Swantown. The plan, with a projected cost to the county of an unknown but significant amount, received high praise from Commissioner Angie Homola, fighting to retain her seat in the County Commissioners office. She has supported the Skagit Fisheries Enhancement Group, lending an air of urgency to the plan. At first it looked as though everyone in the room was for the proposed salmon habitat until one of Homola’s opponents took the floor. Phil Collier, Oak Harbor High School graduate class of 1975, and business owner of 37 years, proceeded to tell the hushed crowd that there has never been any salmon in the brackish lake and just wishing it so won’t make a salmon habitat today “There has never been any salmon,” Collier said. “And if salmon are introduced, they will surely perish.”Folks turned to each other in their seats and compared assessments, Homola’s to Collier’s, and confirmed Swan Lake water is not oxygenated, has no fast cool freshwater, running streams or river, there is no sand or gravel for reproduction, and no food source. Collier has first-hand knowledge of this passed down over the years through family members, specifically his wife’s relatives who know the area well. Soon after speaking up, Collier received pats on the back and reminded people he is the only true conservative common sense conservationist. Folks thanked him for clearing up a muddy situation. Collier maintained the Skagit Fisheries Enhancement group already knows the truth. “This will be Angie Homola’s ‘Bridge to No-where’,” he told the group. Whidbey Islanders are urged to do their own research and learn about a project many people are now calling a wanton waste of funds.
