Two old friends share long wait for kidney transplant BY PATRICIA DUFF Staff reporter

FREELAND — You’re never too old for a kidney. That’s what doctors told Freeland resident Ivan Little when he went from being fit all of his life to suffering from kidney failure in the fall of last year. Failure occurs when the kidneys are no longer able to provide waste removal functions for the body. Little is 79 and must visit the Davita Dialysis Center in Oak Harbor three times per week to stay alive. He shares this routine with his old friend from Langley High School, Lloyd Furman, a former mayor of Langley, whose kidney failure happened over a period of eight years. It came on unexpectedly for Little, who said the feeling of exhaustion kept him from his daily routine. “I couldn’t do anything,” Little said. “I couldn’t mow the grass, I could barely walk. I was anemic and short of breath. It was awful. You have this feeling that you wish you would die because it would be easier,” he said. After the renal failure was diagnosed and he started dialysis, Little said he started feeling “really good.” But, although he and his good

Lloyd Furman and Ivan Little take a moment for a photo in Freeland. The longtime friends from South Whidbey both are on a kidney donation waiting list. friend Furman are glad to have a life sustaining dialysis center on the island, they both hope to find a donated kidney. The only

treatment options for kidney failure are dialysis or a kidney transplant. “Everybody’s got two kidneys

and one kidney is all you need,” Furman said. “If you’ve got two good kidneys then you can donate one. One kidney is adequate for

life,” he added, though Furman admitted that he doesn’t quite know how one goes about asking someone for a kidney. Furman and Little are wellversed in what it takes to receive a kidney from a donor. They are both on the waiting list at the University of Washington Medicine Kidney Care and Transplant Program, one of the best in the country. The program is part of the National Kidney Registry, the largest national living donor exchange program that includes a network of more than 20 institutions. “You have to have a matching blood type and then there are five or six markers in the blood, and you have to match three or four of those,” Furman said. Furman’s blood type is A+ and Little’s is type A, both common. “I’ve been on that list for two years,” Furman said. Furman had to wait a year to get on the list after having open heart surgery and a valve replacement. “You can’t have had two major operations within a year of getting on the list,” Furman said. There is a shorter waiting time for living donor kidney transplantation. However, patients being See Transplant, A6

South Whidbey schools aim to improve test scores, image BY BEN WATANABE Staff reporter

LANGLEY — Enrollment, funding, staffing and test scores all need to improve in the South Whidbey School District, principals and board members agreed. The five principals and superintendent reported their efforts to improve the district and achieve its mission and goals of “career and college ready” students. Until this year’s test scores are released in August, the principals told the school board about the work and programs their staffs initiated to increase standardized test scores like the district writing assessment, end of course exams, high school

proficiency exams and measurements of student progress, which replaced the WASL a few years ago. The low scores that proved worrisome from last year will improve in time, said District Superintendent Jo Moccia. “It’s a process,” she said. In addition to test scores, at least one district parent expressed her concern about the image of Bayview School. South Whidbey’s alternative high school is being closed and consolidated to the South Whidbey Primary Campus, where it will be a kindergarten through 12th grade alternative school with a new name: South Whidbey Academy. Miriam Coates urged Moccia and the board to craft a new identity for

the new school, one apart from the stigma attached to its predecessor, as a place for students who smoke during passing period and on-thecusp dropouts. “The district has to get a handle on the face of the new academy,” Coates said. The school district has worked to redefine the culture at its only alternative school. New brochures have been printed, Moccia said, but some of its history, like the historic Bayview school bell, will live on at the new location. “We have done a lot of work rebranding that school,” Moccia said. “We still have to allow See Scores, A20

Prosecutor charges Baker with first-degree murder By JESSIE STENSLAND Staff reporter

The Island County Prosecutor’s Office charged 61-year-old Greenbank resident Robert “Al” Baker Wednesday with first-degree murder, a domestic-violence crime with a deadly weapon enhancement and an aggravating factor. Baker, who turned 62 Thursday, is being held in Island County jail on $5 million bail after a judge found probable cause to hold him for the murder of his wife, 53-year-old Kathie Baker.

couldn’t get hold of her. After finding bloody drag marks in the house and getting contradictory stories from Al Baker about his wife’s whereabouts, detectives obtained a search warrant for the home and called in the state patrol’s Crime Scene Response Team to help process the scene, according to court documents. Kathie’s body was found June 9. The cause of death was determined to be blunt force trauma to the head and ligature strangulation. Investigators found a

A detective’s report on the case indicates that the motive for the murder may have been another woman. A woman from Alaska was staying with Al Baker at his Greenbank home while Kathie’s tarp-wrapped body was in a ravine at the back of the house, court documents state. Kathie was last seen alive June 2. Deputies with the Island County Sheriff’s Office started investigating her disappearance after Kathie’s boss at Raytheon Corporation in Denver reported that he

Chief Criminal Deputy Eric Ohme, who is handling the case, said the Bakers were married in 2007 and aren’t believed to have any children. They both worked as research scientists in Antarctica. If convicted, Baker could face up to 28 years in prison under the standard

sentencing range and including a two-year deadly weapon enhancement. In addition, the aggravating factor could add to the sentence if a jury finds that the victim was “particularly vulnerable or incapable of resistance.” Jessie Stensland can be reached at jstensland@ whidbeynewsgroup. com, 1-866-316-7276 or 360-675-6611.

SOUTH END Port looks to replace boat ramp The Port of South Whidbey is looking to replace the boat ramp at Possession Beach park and is hoping the state will help cover the tab. During the commissioners’ regular meeting Tuesday, the board unanimously agreed to pursue a $99,000 grant from the Washington Recreation and Conservation Office’s Boating Facilities Program. The existing ramp is open for use but is old and poorly designed. The port, which is the sole owner of the park, has to

clear sand from the ramp regularly and it’s hoped a new ramp would reduce such maintenance. If awarded the grant, the port would use the money to pay for engineering and permitting of the new facility. Funding for the rest of the project has yet to be determined.

and so is the deadline for renewing boat and watercraft registration decals. In Washington, all boat registrations expire on June 30. “Don’t let an expired registration spoil your day; remember to renew before you get out on the water,” Crider said in a release. Boat registrations can be renewed online at the Department of Licensing website or in person at a neighborhood vehicle licensing office, or the Auditor’s Office in Coupeville. Those going to an office should bring the registration number on the bow of the boat or watercraft with them. DOL discontinued paper renewal notices for boats in 2010, offering boat owners the opportunity to sign up to receive email renewal reminders. To sign up for an email renewal for next year, go to

Greenbank Farm once the current arrangement with the Greenbank Farm Management Group expires in 2014. Jim Patton, executive director for the Port of Coupeville, said he hopes the volunteer group will have a recommendation developed by the end of the year. To meet that goal, he said the group should start work by the end of June.

COUPEVILLE Farm transition group selected Commissioners for the Port of Coupeville have selected nine people to develop a transition plan concerning the way the Greenbank Farm is managed. Each commissioner selected three people to participate in the committee. Commissioner Benye Weber selected Janet Birchfield, Kyle Waterman and Val Hillers.

Letters In response

Promote top nurse to CEO To the editor: I wish to follow up on Sue Keblusek’s heartfelt letter about her stay at Whidbey General Hospital. Her impressions of the concern, graciousness, and skill set of Chief Nursing Officer Linda Gipson piqued her interest over the future of our hospital. I’ve written hundreds of pages on my website about WGH and how we can restore its reputation, get patients to return, provide them a proper work environment, and improve the quality of care. Dr. Gipson has a stupendous list of achievements over a glittering 40-year career. She has four degrees in health care and health care administration, and she’s held almost every conceivable position of responsibility at a dozen of the country’s finest hospitals. Google “CNO Gipson CEO” and be dazzled by a life fully lived and dedicated to her patients. In contrast, the current CEO hasn’t any health or administrative education, and his only medical experience is with WGH. I urge all South Enders to call your commissioner, Grethe Cammermeyer, and beg her to fully consider Dr. Gipson when the CEO’s contract is up in September. Ms. Keblusek’s wish is to “make a great place even better.” Let’s help make it come true. Rob Born Freeland

Former clerk backs candidate To the editor: I am a former Island County Clerk, now retired. As a past elected official, I am personally familiar with the activities and functions of the Board of Island County Commissioners. In my previous capacity as county clerk, some of my responsibilities involved working directly with the board during annual budget preparation, strategic planning for my department and other routine work sessions. During my final term, I had the privilege of working with Commissioner Helen Price Johnson. At the time I retired, a most pressing issue for the board was the state of the county budget. Significant cuts had to be made in each department in order to deal with the drastic reduction in available revenue. This presented an enormous challenge, especially for a new member of the board. Helen Price Johnson proved to be up to the challenge. My experience in working with Helen was that she came to the job as commissioner prepared, having educated herself

beforehand in the functions, needs and problems she would be required to deal with. While I did not always agree with decisions that were made, I always found her to be willing to listen to the concerns of various department heads and elected officials. Though the board was ultimately required to make many unpopular decisions in dealing with the financial crisis, Helen did so intelligently, professionally and respectfully. We all recognize that the issues the board is dealing with are far from over. Helen has proven herself up for the ongoing challenge. Her experience is invaluable for the next four years. Let’s not lose that. Sharon Franzen Coupeville

Fire levy coming to South End voters comment period, the voice of Langley resident Bob Walters persisted for alternative solutions to the fire district’s funding issues. He told the commissioners at the meeting Thursday, June 14 to look at general obligation bonds for buildings and other capital purchases. “You should never build a building without general obligation (bonds),” Walters said. The levy increase would bump the property tax to 76 cents per $1,000 of assessed property value. The new valuation would cost the owner of a $200,000 property $152 each year for fire protection and emergency medical services. South Whidbey Fire/ EMS is a debt-free district. For years, the commissioners had an aggressive cash reserve system that saved 25 percent of revenue for capital purchases like fire engines and facilities. That rate was reduced to 20 percent last year to help stem the revenue loss.

BY BEN WATANABE Staff reporter

FREELAND — South Whidbey voters soon will have their say about a 15-cent levy increase for South Whidbey Fire/EMS. Commissioners from the fire protection district unanimously approved to put the levy measure on the November ballot. “If we don’t act and do something, in a year or two we’re going to seriously be impacted in what we can do,” said Commissioner Kenon Simmons. Fire Chief Rusty Palmer previously encouraged the levy increase to restore funding. Declining property values on the South End of Whidbey Island decreased the district’s revenue, while fixed costs like fuel and energy for the district’s six stations increased. After months of public meetings and dozens of comments about the levy, the commissioners voted 3-0 in favor of sending the levy lift to a public vote. During the

evaluated for living donor kidney transplantation are also placed on a transplant waiting list to provide additional options. The university called Little twice for a transplant kidney. He keeps an overnight bag waiting by the door for that purpose. “Both times they told him to stand by; that there was a kidney for him,” his wife Marilyn Little said, “And then they didn’t. The kidneys turned out not to be good both times,” she added. “Well, Ivan is in wonderful shape now,” said Furman’s wife, also named Marilyn. “If it weren’t for his kidneys he’d be fine,” Marilyn Little said. Little smiles at this. Little had his hope piqued before that, as well, when his daughter Leslie Breeden of Langley discovered she was a match with her dad for kidney donation. “I already knew my blood type and the process at the University of Washington was very efficient and took about four to five hours in total,” Breeden said. She said the Kidney Care and Transplant Program clinic had everything ready for her when she arrived. They drew her blood, gave her a kidney test, did a scan and some other tests. “It’s all paid for,” Breeden said, “Including the ferry, gas, parking, lunch. They just gave me an American Express card and I went down for the tests at 8 a.m. and was out by 2 p.m.,” she said. The process, from one’s initial inquiry to potentially being approved as a donor, takes approximately three to six months altogether, and depends on the required tests, the test results and the recipient’s status.

Unfortunately, Breeden had elevated diastolic blood pressure and was not allowed to donate. “It was a let down for me; it really was,” she said, “but they don’t take any risks.” “I cried because I just assumed I’d do it and we’d be done, and it was this great gift I could give my dad,” she added. Breeden said she is encouraged by her father’s great attitude and is hopeful because he is high on the donor list. Little takes it in stride and dialysis keeps him going. “I don’t think people realize how common kidney failure is and it’s not something we ever thought about,” Marilyn Little said. “Now that we’re dealing with it, we realize how many people have it. I think I heard that one in 10 people in the U.S. has kidney problems,” she added. Dr. Chiajen Kuan is a nephrologist, a kidney care specialist, who works with the patients at Davita Dialysis Center. Kuan said that there are far more patients waiting for a transplant than there are available organs. There is a national list and a patient moves up toward the top depending on the waiting time after enlistment. The average waiting time for blood type A and O patients is about four years, he said, and much longer for blood type B and AB patients. “The public can help relieve this medical need by signing up as organ donors,” Kuan said, but while they wait he’s thankful to be able to help his patients live an almost normal life. “Dialysis is a tough and imperfect treatment, but it gives our patients the blessing of life, of time, in return. I have always felt blessed to take care of my dialysis patients during their journey through life,” Kuan said. Both Little and Furman spoke highly of Kuan and said they are grateful for the five available chairs at the DaVita clinic and especially for the local para-transit van that brings them door to door

from home to the center and back again. DaVita Center director Kristina Olmsted said she is also grateful to the men and women drivers who go out of their way to accommodate patients’ needs, as well as to Oak Harbor Senior Services volunteers who help bring patients back and forth to their appointments. “The ultimate goal here at DaVita is to ensure our patients have the best quality of life possible,” Olmsted said. “We try to do this by providing each patient with exceptional care to aid them in a long and healthy life. To that end, in addition to the nephrologist, the center also employs skilled technicians, registered nurses, a social worker and an on-site dietician for the patients. The support system at DaVita and at home is important to both Little and Furman. The strict diet they must follow is vital to staying alive and they are indebted to their wives for their attention. People unfamiliar with kidney failure may not know that even certain healthy foods can be hazardous to the patient, such as bananas, potatoes, red beans, spinach and tomatoes, which are hard for the kidney to filter. These patients also limit their fluid intake, such as one lady on the bus who Little said can have only one-third cup of water or other fluid every three days. “Our wives take good care of us,” Little said, and Furman agreed. “I couldn’t do it without Marilyn,” Furman said. The waiting game goes on for these gentlemen, who remain close to home and to the dialysis center out of necessity, preventing them from visiting offisland extended family. It’s a dedication that means survival. “None of us would last very long without dialysis,” Little said. “Some who get tired of the process and quit, only last a few days.” a i t to s ave This was trueWhy of onewgentleman with m on n i gthe h tbus foreveryday a f re etoqu o te o whom Little rode the center. “He quit on Friday and on Monday he died,” Little said.

Trio of Falcon youngsters make all-conference softball team BY BEN WATANABE Staff reporter

LANGLEY — Whoever said, “Three’s a crowd,” must have stated it before meeting Chantel Brown, Mackenzie Hezel and Alex Kubeska. The three Falcon softball sluggers were each voted to the all-Cascade Conference team this spring. All three will be vital to the Falcons’ success next season. “These younger kids are going to be team leaders,” said Falcon head coach Ashley Lopez. Brown and Hezel are first time all-conference selections. Chemistry and communication between the two sophomores has had a long time to develop; they have played together as catcher and pitcher since seventh grade. And though Brown was behind home plate about half the season, she also played third base and left field. Catching is her preferred position and where she had her most memorable moment of the season when she caught a foul bunt that was curling over her head. “There’s some games I want to catch because I’m in the game more,” said Brown, add-

Chantel Brown, Mackenzie Hezel and Alex Kubeska were voted to the all-Cascade Conference second team in fastpitch softball. ing that she prefers catching during cold weather because the padded gear is warm. “It was nice to be recognized at the spot I wanted to play.” As the leadoff hitter, her job was to get on base, run aggressively and score. Brown was a solid lead batter with a .470 batting average, .939 slugging percentage and team-leading 30 stolen bases. Though the slap hitter typically knocks sin-

gles, Brown’s speed allowed her to stretch some of those hits into doubles and triples this season. “Chantel did very well in playing small ball and long ball,” Lopez said. Cleanup was Hezel’s game this season, both at the plate and on the field. The sophomore pitcher started and closed games and batted fourth in the Falcons’ lineup

— the cleanup spot. Lopez said Hezel made solid contact as a batter, but wasn’t a typical power hitter that crushed the ball. Rather, Hezel consistently hit into gaps and produced RBI behind a .464 batting average and .889 slugging percentage. “No matter what, she made contact,” Lopez said. Next season, Hezel will be relied upon often as the

Falcons’ ace pitcher. That suits her just fine because she enjoys the highlights of pitching — strikeouts. “Obviously, you like pitching when you’re having a good day,” Hezel said. “You feel like you’re in control of the game.” The season had its bumps even during victories. In a game against Archbishop Murphy, Hezel was called for a handful of illegal pitches that led to several runs. Lopez left Hezel in until the fifth inning when Hezel’s pitch count got too high and the score too close. In moments like that, Hezel said she tries to forget about the last pitch. “I just keep my calm and pitch one pitch at a time,” she said. Then there’s Kubeska, South Whidbey’s most veteran fastpitch player. The third baseman and pitcher has a whip arm and a knack for fielding. Even though she made the all-conference second team, it was a letdown for Lopez and Kubeska after the junior was a first-team pick last year. “That was definitely a disappointment for me,” Lopez said. “She is our best defensive player, and one of the best in the league.”

Kubeska, the third batter, produced RBI, stole bases and scored. She hit .596 with a .972 slugging percentage, including four home runs, 19 stolen bases and 17 RBI. “I think I had a good season,” Kubeska said. She may be one of the only seniors on next season’s squad. That means Kubeska will train more with a pitching coach and a hitting trainer so she can lead the Falcons on the field. Lopez also hopes Kubeska becomes a vocal leader and shares her knowledge and experiences in fastpitch with her teammates. “I want to be better for my team,” Kubeska said. Her favorite position is third base, but Kubeska found she enjoyed pitching. Partly out of necessity, Kubeska began training with a pitching coach in early March about a week before the season started. “I like being in control of the game and I love the feeling of striking someone out,” Kubeska said. With all the returning talent, South Whidbey looks to improve its fourth-place finish in the conference and continue toward Lopez’s goal of returning to the district and state tournaments.

Former South Whidbey thrower swings for 2012 London Olympics BY BEN WATANABE Staff reporter

Like so many of her throws, Kimery Hern is going the distance. Hern, a former Falcon, is headed to Beaverton, Oregon for the U.S. Olympic Team Trials. The South Whidbey alumna discovered her passion and talent for throwing the hammer in 2004 during her junior year. Since then, she went on to be a scholarship athlete at the Georgia Institute of Technology, better known as Georgia Tech. Since graduating from the Atlanta school in 2009, she moved back to Washington and continued to pursue her dream of competing

in the Olympics. Despite spurning the University of Washington for Georgia Tech, Hern connected with a UW throwing coach for her training. After one meeting with Husky throwing coach Reedus Thurmond, Hern was brought in to help with the UW track and field team and train with him. Recently, Hern competed at the Georgia Tech Invite. Though the results of her return to her college campus was disappointing at 61 meters, she identified some technique issues with her coach. “So my coach and I went back to the drawing board and

The women’s final round is scheduled for 1 p.m. and admission is free to watch the trials. Hern encouraged anyone able to make the trip to watch her chase her Olympic dream. Only the top three finishers qualify for the U.S. Olympic Team. Photos and updates from the trials may be found on the Tracktown USA page at tracktown.

In her first throw, Hern launched the hammer 63.90 meters, about six inches shy of the qualifying distance of 64 meters. The second throw was scratched. Then, Hern passed the qualifying mark of 64 meters in the hammer throw at 65.10 meters (213 feet, 6 inches). “All-in-all, I’ve accomplished every personal goal I set for myself this season,” Hern said in an email. “The only one left is: To make the

Trudy Patricia Campbell, generous patroness of many organizations, selfless mom, and loyal wife and companion, left this life June 3, 2012, following more than 10 years of decline with Progressive Supranuclear Palsy, a rare brain disorder. She was born Jan. 11, 1928, in Los Angeles to German immigrants Johann and Ilse Eggers, and attended Fairfax High School. Upon graduation, she skated professionally, touring with Sonja Henie. She later attended UCLA but returned to skating with the Shipstads & Johnson Ice Follies. She was teaching figure skating in Tacoma when she agreed to marry young naval officer R. Bruce Campbell, whom she met at age 14, and who became her husband of 60 years. His 30 years with the Navy took Bruce and Trudy around the world, raising their family in Hawaii, California, Washington, Virginia, Georgia, and France. During a tour at NAS Whidbey Island, Trudy was active in the Officers Wives Club while Bruce was CO of Patrol Squadron 2. For most of the 1960s, Bruce was deployed to Vietnam and Trudy kept the family running smoothly all alone. In 1968, Trudy became a realtor, and worked until their kids finished college. The couple retired first to Saratoga, Calif., and then to Sandy Hook on Whidbey Island in 1980, with snowbird residences in Fallbrook, then Palm Desert, Calif. For the last eight years they have lived at Useless Bay. Both during their Navy years and afterward, Trudy and Bruce were passionate about travel. Trips to Europe, Mexico and other destinations were coupled with long years as boat owners and enthusiastic members of the Sandy Hook and Oak Harbor yacht clubs.

In the Bible, Job is told, “Where wast thou when I laid the foundations of the earth?

Enso House needs a new roof: buy a birdhouse! BY PATRICIA DUFF South Whidbey Record

A local hospice needs a roof, and volunteers will hold a birdhouse auction to help the cause. Enso House is a home for people of all faiths who desire comfort care at the end of life. Located near Freeland and surrounded by fields and forests, Enso House provides a peaceful setting conducive to reflection, meditation and spiritual healing; but even the most meditative of buildings needs to be maintained. About $13,000 is needed to replace the house’s roof. The Enso Birdhouse Auction will be from 2 to

5 p.m. Saturday, June 23, at Enso House, 6339 Wahl Road in Freeland. The event will include food, music, a silent and live auction and local wildlife experts, including writer Frances Wood and Phyllis Kind of the Audubon Society and raptor biologist and naturalist Steve Layman, who will bring one of his birds for a demonstration. Jim and Jo Shelver have created a dozen or so houses and feeders for the cause and organizer Cynthia Trowbridge said the auction would not have happened without the couple. Greenbank furniture maker Rob Hetler contributed his own elegant take on the item, creat-

ing what he has called “A New Home for a Bird Spirit.” “It could be used as a home for cremated remains or as a reliquary for a bird lover,” Hetler said. “Regardless, its shape will always evoke that of a birdhouse, with its faux entry hole and perch, as well as the pitched roof/cover.” Hetler used Macassar ebony for the roof, and Oregon crotch walnut and bamboo for the box. The piece is valued at $400. “I wanted to make something that would transcend the bird house function, yet embrace its form,” Hetler said. “I have been called upon to make funerary boxes in the past, such as full coffins for burial for humans and animals, as well as boxes for cremated remains.” Hetler said he is often asked to make reliquaries, or memory boxes as he likes to call them, to house artifacts of a passed loved one. “When called on to participate in the Enso House auction, I thought it fitting to build something that would marry the function of a hospice facility and the form of a birdhouse,” he added. Not all the birdhouses are quite as elegant, but lean more toward the whimsical side, such

as the Shelver’s dino-inspired birdhouse, featuring the front and tail end of a child’s set of colorful dinosaur bookends. “Jo found those at Value Village,” Jim Shelver said. The Shelvers were quite excited to show off the variety of pieces that were sent in for the auction; birdhouses, feeders and perches made with every

material imaginable, including metal, rocks, driftwood, cedar, a rusty, old license plate and a Mariners lunch box. Sponsors of the event include Island Apiaries, Wild Birds Unlimited, Gosanko Chocolate and Book Lovers Book Exchange. Call 331-4699 for more information.

Freeland woman leaps into business By KATHY REED Staff reporter

Inspiration struck April Ducharme as she waited in line for the Clinton-to-Mukilteo ferry. During her daily commute to the “mainland,” she thought up a plan to make her time in line work for her. And such was the birth of her business, Pond Hopper. “The concept is to bridge Whidbey Island with the greater market,” Ducharme said. Pond Hopper’s motto is “crossing the pond so you don’t have to.” The concept is simple: If anyone from Whidbey Island needs something picked up from the greater Seattle area, Ducharme will pick it up and bring it to Whidbey. Likewise, if someone needs something from the island delivered to the mainland, Ducharme will do that, too. “It’s like a taxi for things,” Ducharme said with a smile and a sparkle in her bright blue eyes. She said she thinks her service, while available to residents and businesses alike, could be invaluable for small businesses. “So many small businesses can’t afford an employee,” she said. “Pond Hopper saves them tons of time and money and I can deliver right to a job site.” “Right from the beginning, I thought it was a really amazing idea,” said Sandra Jarvis, owner of Museo Gallery in Langley. “For us to pack art — sometimes having to double-box it because of the fragility — and ship it is time consuming and expensive. She’s very reasonable and very careful. I’m just thrilled with the service.” Michael Nichols, owner of Whidbey Green Goods in Clinton, has been using Pond Hopper weekly for a few months now. “It is one less headache I have to deal with,” he said. “Items she acquires would not be available to my customers.” “Even though we make regular trips,


there are lots of things we forget,” said Larry Lowary of Tree-Top Baking. “It’s been really convenient to give her a call. She’ll stop almost anywhere.” While Ducharme hopes to make Pond Hopper her full time, self-supporting business, her job in pharmaceutical sales means she’s in the car driving all over the mainland five days a week. But her job is flexible, giving her the ability to go nearly anywhere, any given day of the work week. “It’s like having an on-call employee,” she said. Judy Feldman, executive director of Greenbank Farm, agrees. “It’s like having an extra staff member,” she said. “Someone we trust, yet can go off island for us without putting other important tasks on the back burner.” Ducharme, whose mother and brother live on Whidbey Island, decided to make the island her home two years ago. She said she wanted to figure out a way to connect with people in the community and believes Pond Hopper can help her do that. But she wants to be very clear that she’s not trying to take business away from Whidbey Island. Rather, she’s offering to help people condense the number of trips they have to make to the mainland to get items they can’t normally get on the island and also get Whidbey Island items to people across the pond. “Items that come from Whidbey Island have a certain built-in cachet,” she said. “And if a business has only five or 10 places they need to distribute their goods on the mainland, the Pond Hopper is a way to get the products there. “That’s the vision,” Ducharme continued. “To help small businesses as they grow as sort of an on-call distribution person.” The service works well for residential customers, too. “Residents can get their Costco stuff for a party, for instance, without having to actually go there,” Ducharme said. “There’s so many different possibilities.” Langley resident Erin Everett used the Pond Hopper to deliver bar stools she was selling.

“I expect to use it again and would definitely use it if I had a business that called for products or delivery on the other side,” Everett said. “I can also envision using the Pond Hopper to provide delivery of items if I’m not feeling well.” Ducharme said she has a base price of $20 for her service, but that varies depending on the job and the distance. “That’s the cost of a round trip ferry ticket,” she said. “It’s less expensive to send me.” “She’s saving me money and time,” said Jarvis. “If I had to do it myself it would be prohibitive.” “I appreciated the fact that it saved me an entire day, served as a middleman and saved me money compared to my other options,” agreed Everett. “Also, providing door-to-door service was a huge relief and

spared me from having to figure out all the logistics.” “It saves so much time, and prevents duplication of driving efforts — good for our schedules, great for the environment,” said Feldman. “It ended up costing us less than if one of us had taken the day to drive off island, down to Tacoma and back.” As the Pond Hopper evolves and business picks up, Ducharme plans to consolidate trips and establish set drop sites to make it more economical for everyone. Obviously, more customers lowers the cost, which is an advantage. Ducharme said she’s used the first few months in business to work out any kinks in the system and is ready to take on more clients, just in time for the busy season. “Islanders aren’t used to this kind of service,” Ducharme said. “I’ve delivered items to people and they tell me ‘This is just like magic.’ That’s the word they used — magic.” “I have come to think of the Pond Hopper as iconic Whidbey,” said Everett. “It’s such a unique idea and it’s so Whidbey Island.”

Only two grades made sufficient gains in reading from the 2010-2011 school year in the measurements of student progress, which tests students from third to eighth grade.

Math scores for eighth graders dropped to 51.6 percent. Almost half of eighth grade students last year failed to pass the math proficiency exam. Langley Middle School Principal Eric Nerison said the school will revise its leveling system for math to align with the common core, which groups students by grade into math classes. Eighth grade students, for example, should be in prealgebra and algebra courses. The new system has its problems, however. “It will be difficult, if not impossible, to reconcile our leveling plan with the common core,” Nerison said. Reading scores also took a hit at the middle school. Both seventh and eight grade scores dropped, which led Nerison and the middle school teachers to begin cross-curriculum education. Students were required to journal in classes beyond English, such as physical education and science. Next year, Langley Middle School will have a daily 40-minute “enrichment” period for students to receive assistance,

South Whidbey School Board Member Linda Racicot hears the improvement plan for Langley Middle School from LMS Principal Eric Nerison. or “intervention” for struggling students. Scores from this year’s state exams will help the school populate the enrichment period classes. “The logistics of how we’ll fit that in have yet to be figured out,” said Nerison, adding that there will only be one lunch and a shortened passing time next year. “What we want to provide is some intervention around

reading and conferencing about what they’re reading.” South Whidbey High School met its progress and proficiency goals in math and reading in the 2010-2011 school year. Principal John Patton said the school used small groups for struggling students who were identified at the start of the current school year by principals, counselors and teachers. He also highlighted the use of double-blocked English in ninth grade for remediation and requiring math and science classes to answer questions in complete answers rather than shorthand, as simple ways to include reading and writing beyond a single course.
