Plenty of bang for your buck By NATHAN WHALEN Staff reporter
Tents have been popping up throughout Oak Harbor filled with the explosive things people will use to celebrate the Fourth of July. Several organizations started selling fireworks Thursday and will continue through the Fourth of July holiday on Wednesday. Some of the pyrotechnic sales are being made by nonprofits or children’s groups raising money for their programs. The Soroptimists International of Oak Harbor is back again this year selling fireworks out of a booth located on Highway 20 between 7-Eleven and Whidbey Island Bank. Among other things, the group, which focuses on the betterment of women and children, offers scholarships and a mentoring program to help a woman, often a young single mother, get back into the workforce. “We’re thankful for anything the community will give us so we can give it back,” said Marilee Paddock, a Soroptimist who was working the
booth and waiting for customers on Thursday. Further in town, Candace Burkey, manager of Anacortes cheerleading facility Island Cheer, was selling fireworks to raise money to cover the costs of competition. Other firework stands are simply in the old fashioned business of making money. Fireworks may be fun, but if not used properly under adult supervision they can lead to trouble, and laws regulate their use. Generally, fireworks can be discharged daily between noon and 11 p.m. through July 3; 9 a.m. to midnight July 4; and 9 a.m. to 11 p.m. July 5. Coupeville has a more restrictive ordinance. The Central Whidbey town allows discharge of fireworks from 9 a.m. to 11 p.m. only on the Fourth of July. Coupeville also allows only one permit for the sale of fireworks. Mayor Nancy Conard said no organization applied for the permit this year. Only “safe and sane” fireworks are allowed to be sold on Whidbey. Such fireworks include sparklers, cylindrical fountains, wheels, mines and ground
spinners. Law enforcement receives numerous calls around the Fourth of July concerning fireworks. Sheriff Mark Brown said many calls are regarding fireworks being discharged off hours, while some folks ask questions about illegal fireworks or complain about gunshots being fired. He said deputies “triage” calls. Fireworks calls generally are a low priority and deputies respond to them when they can. Fireworks complaints are generally higher in unincorporated parts of Island County. Brown said those areas attract people from communities that have more restrictive fireworks laws. He noted that there are two professional fireworks displays that take place next week on Whidbey Island. Freeland has a fireworks display the evening of July 3 while Oak Harbor’s fireworks display starts at 10:30 p.m. on July 4. Oak Harbor’s celebration also features a parade that begins at 11 a.m. in downtown. “I hope everybody is safe and controls their alcohol intake,” Brown said.
The Navy will be replacing an aging jet fuel pipeline with a new pipeline that will run through the city of Oak Harbor and into Island County. The pipeline is needed to carry jet fuel from the Seaplane Base north to the Ault Field Base of Whidbey Island Naval Air Station. The current pipeline is 60 years old and considered outdated. The Oak Harbor City Council approved an easement agreement at the last council meeting to allow the construction of the new lines within the public right-of-way. The Navy will pay the city $9,125 for the easement. The Island County commissioners are still in the process of considering an easement agreement. They recently met at a special meeting with Navy officials to go over technical details and separately with lawyers to consider the selling price of the easement. The lines carry JP-8, a jet fuel with a flashpoint of 100 degrees Fahrenheit. It is a less flammable and less hazardous fuel used by the Department of Defense for improved safety. The current line runs generally along the side of Torpedo Road, Regatta Drive, Highway 20 and Ault Field Road; it will be abandoned in the ground. Oak Harbor Development Ser vices Director Steve Powers said the new line will run along a similar but shortened route. “The new pipeline will be a significant improvement over the line that exists today,” Powers said, pointing out that
the modern line will meet a variety of new safety and environmental regulations and will include a monitoring system. The new fuel line will be built in the middle of the road and will be buried from 5 to 8 feet deep to prevent accidental damage from excavators or other machines. It will run 2,020 linear feet in the city and 1,750 feet in the county. Powers said the Navy is set to award the contract for the construction project by Oct. 1. He expects that the work would begin soon after. City officials’ main concern about granting the easement was liability. Normally the city would require a franchise agreement before granting an easement for a utility. Such an agreement would indemnify the city in case of an accident, but federal law forbids the Navy from entering such an agreement. The Washington Cities Insurance Authority recommended that the city obtain additional general liability and pollution insurance to cover the risk, which would cost an extra $30,000 to $55,000 a year. The Navy can’t legally help with the payments. Nevertheless, the City Council members were very much in favor of the agreement. “We need to support this. It is vital to the future of the Navy,” Councilwoman Beth Munns said.

Cracks appear in law-and-justice tax proposal By JESSIE STENSLAND Staff reporter
Island County Sheriff Mark Brown has openly expressed frustration with two county commissioners as he struggles to find a way to fund more deputies for his beleaguered department. Brown and Prosecutor Greg Banks co-chair the Island County Law and Justice Council, which has been trying for months to find a better way to fund criminal justice departments. The members approved a draft letter Wednesday that recommends the commissioners place a measure on the ballot for an increase of 0.3 percent of sales tax for criminal justice services in the county, cities and town. It would cost an extra 3 cents on a $10 purchase. The council had decided on the sales tax request in a 11-1 vote at a special meeting earlier this year. They offered
no recommendation about when the measure should be on the ballot. If passed, it would generate an estimated $1.8 million per year, with two-thirds going to the county and the rest divided among municipalities. This time, Commissioner Angie Homola, a Democrat, said she had reservations about the proposal and abstained in the final vote to send the letter. Commissioner Kelly Emerson, a Republican, had said at the council’s special meeting that she was opposed to the recommendation, but for very different reasons. Emerson argued that the county already has enough money in the budget to fund criminal justice if priorities are changed. In contrast, Homola said the entire county is suffering from cuts and she objects to a tax increase that would restrict commissioners from

spending any of the money outside of criminal justice. “I would feel so much better about putting this on the ballot if I would have some percentage to offset costs,” she said. The Law and Justice Council — made up of criminal justice officials, local government representatives and citizens — recommends that all of the revenue collected should be devoted exclusively to criminal justice purposes. In addition, the members recommended that the ballot include non-supplanting language so that the additional revenues can’t be shifted around, but are only spent on new programs and new employees. In an interview, Brown said he feels caught in the middle. While the two Democratic commissioners say there’s no money in the current budget for additional law-and-justice spending, Emerson claims without presenting any specifics that cuts can be made to fulfill the $3 million hole in criminal justice departments. “One of the commissioners claims that funding may exist. I have yet to see a plan articulating this claim and see little cooperation from other members of the board in achieving that goal, if it is in fact the
case,” he wrote in a letter to fellow council members. At the meeting Wednesday, the sheriff’s frustration was compounded as Homola expressed doubts about the proposed measure. Homola emphasized that departments outside of the law-and-justice system are also suffering and that more deputies will mean additional work for the treasurer and human resource departments. She repeatedly said that county employees haven’t received cost-of-living pay increases in five years. “It’s concerning to me that there’s zero dollars here that will go to other staff,” she said. Sheriff Brown, however, pressed his points with the commissioner. He argued that public safety should be the top priority. He said he didn’t believe the treasurer’s office would be extremely burdened by having to issue paychecks to 10 or so additional deputies. Brown said the only way the tax increase would pass is if it’s structured in such a way that the voters know exactly where the money is going. He said he advised the commissioners during the campaign for Proposition 1, the failed ballot measure

to raise property taxes, that they should be specific about where the funds would go, but his advice was ignored. Homola said she talked to mayors in the county and concluded that more people should be at the table to discuss the issue. Banks, the prosecutor, pointed out that the Oak Harbor and Langley mayors are members of the council and receive all the agendas, but have never once attended a meeting. Echoing another member of the council, Homola also questioned whether it would make sense to put the measure on the ballot this year when the election is so close. She said the failure of the measure would make it that much harder to ever ask voters for revenue in the future. “I must also think of the good of the whole,” she said.
Brown countered that the need in his office is too urgent. He lost 23 percent of his commissioned officers in the last three years. “I caution you and your fellow commissioners not to procrastinate too long and demand too much beyond the current request,” Brown said. Banks explained that the council took on the issue at the request of Commissioner Helen Price Johnson and that the letter is only a recommendation. He said the council is focused on law-and-justice departments and it’s the commissioners’ job to weigh the recommendation with other concerns in the county. In the end, the council voted to send the letter to the commissioners without changes.

Page turned in Coupeville school history No salary, benefits
changes for teachers
Interim superintendent starts next week
By REBECCA OLSON Staff reporter
Monday evening, the Oak Harbor School Board approved a one-year contract between the school district and Oak Harbor Education Association, the teachers union, that made no changes to teacher pay or benefits. More than 70 percent of teachers voted to ratify the contract, said Peter Szalai, president of OHEA. No changes in pay, benefits or TRI days were made due to the fear of mid-year sequestration next school year, said Kurt Schonberg, lead negotiator for the school district. Congress is under deadline to make forced budget cuts, threatening a 10-percent across the board cut of federal money, which includes Impact Aid, funding the school district receives in lieu of property tax on government property. Potentially, as much as $1.5 million could be cut from Impact Aid for the school district. One change in the contract is that teachers will use the afternoon after school on three early release Mondays to learn about and discuss the state’s new teacher and principal evalu-
By NATHAN WHALEN Staff reporter
Over the past five years, the Coupeville School District has seen changes ranging from the completion of a new high school to a trimming of approximately 10 percent of its budget. The school district saw another change Friday when Superintendent Patty Page finished her tenure in the Coupeville School District. She announced her resignation in the spring so she can take the superintendent position in the North Kitsap School District. Despite the recent budget problems, she expressed pride in the staff’s dedicated efforts to give students on Central Whidbey a good education. “We really have done a good job at changing the focus from teaching to learning,” Page said, describing how education has changed in Coupeville over the years. She said she continued a process that started before her arrival. Curriculum has been realigned, professional learning communities have been strengthened and learning goals have been attained. The school district’s performance in state assessments has improved to where officials received recognition this year from the Office of Superintendent of Public Instruction for student performance in language arts. It was the second time in as many years the school district earned such distinction. Page reminded people of some of the challenges

Coupeville School District superintendent Patty Page finishes her tenure. She resigned earlier in the year to take the superintendent job in North Kitsap. the school district will continue to face after she leaves Coupeville. The school district will have to continue to adjust because of its changing demographics, happening at a time when state and federal funds continue to decrease. She noted that the school district is seeing more students qualify for free and reduced lunches, more students from different ethnic groups and more special education students in recent years. She added the school district also works with Readiness to Learn to help identify and assist homeless students living on Whidbey Island. The demographic changes in the district come as officials have been making painful cuts in recent years. Those cuts included the
elimination of teaching and support positions along with increasing fees for students and residents. On a brighter note, the school district saw an enrollment increase starting with the 2011 school year, which prompted the hiring of additional staff and boosted the district’s fund reserve. “I’m leaving the district in very solid financial shape,” Page said. The Coupeville School District is also improving the technology staff and students’ use of technology. Page said when she started in the school district five years ago, 90 percent of the district’s computers didn’t meet state standards. Thanks to a technology levy approved by voters two years ago, the school district is able to make upgrades,
which include computer labs, wireless network and the addition of online portable devices. She added that staff members are looking at ways to integrate students’ electronic devices into the classroom. The changes aren’t being done for the sake of technology, but because it’s the world students live in, Page said. A temporary replacement has been named to fill Page’s position. Karen Koschak was named interim superintendent last month. She will hold the spot for one year while the school district conducts a search for a permanent superintendent. She starts work in Coupeville in July.
ation program. The 34 total early release afternoons are still considered work days for teachers as they spend the time meeting, grading and performing other school-related tasks. “We’re not giving them anything new. It’s no new money,” Schonberg said, adding that this is a way to recognize the sizable amount of work teachers and principals have to do in order to learn the new evaluation program. The method of handling the state’s 1.9 percent pay cut to teachers last year will be handled the same way this year. Again, teachers won’t work three and one-half half-days of school, resulting in less pay. As to whether everyone is satisfied with the contract, Schonberg said, “It’s a one-year deal. It means we’ll be back at the table next March. Hopefully the federal and state governments will have painted a clearer picture for us of where we are with funding.” “Labor and management relations continue to be good,” Szalai said.

At age 20, Station 81 still worth showing off By JESSIE STENSLAND Staff reporter
The public is invited to a Fourth of July open house celebrating the 20-year anniversary of Oak Harbor’s Fire Station 81. Fire Chief Ray Merrill said he and fellow firefighters felt it was about time to recognize the E. Whidbey Avenue station that has served as the headquarters for the city’s life-savings operations over the last two decades. “We want people to come down, see what we are, see what we do and look at how we have spent their tax dollars,” he said. Merrill urges families to stop by after the Grand Parade, which begins downtown at 11 a.m. Wednesday. The open house runs from 1 p.m. to 4 p.m. There will be stations tours, equipment displays, safety demonstrations,
refreshments and more. The station opened in April of 1992. Merrill said the old fire hall was in the cramped quarters of what is now the ICOM dispatch center attached to the police department. Oak Harbor voters passed a $2.7-million bond just over 20 years ago to finance the new station, the training tower in back and a ladder truck. Back when they moved in, Merrill and Chief Mark Soptich were the only “career staff” at the fire department, which was established in 1929. Merrill said they did a tremendous amount of homework and research to ensure the new building’s design would bear the test of time. “Our change orders were only $8,000, which isn’t much,” he said. He’s very proud of how

I couldn’t have asked for anything more.” About the only concern Merrill does have is about response times. He said the goal is to keep response times to medical calls under four minutes and fires to five minutes. The department’s average for responding to fires last year was four minutes and 26 seconds; the average for medical calls was four minutes and 18 seconds. Merrill said the longest response times are to the southwest side of the city,

The department also has four fire engines, including two 2008 models and two 1997 models. There’s an aid vehicle from 1986 and two command vehicles. In addition, the department maintains a number of trailers for emergencies ranging from spills to natural disasters. As for the building, Merrill said it should last at least 25 more years. The department currently has eight members of the career staff and 38 paid oncall firefighters. “We are staffed 24 hours a day, but we’re not a full career department by any means,” he said. The department responds to about 1,300 calls a year. Last year, they handled 96 fires, 619 medical calls, 47 hazardous conditions and 131 service calls for things like water leaks and assisting invalids. The firefighters are known for working well with others. “We have a very good working relationship with the police for quite a few years,” Merrill said. “We have an excellent crew that works

Whidbey native calls for help in Colorado News-Times staff
The huge wildfire raging in Colorado may look impressive on TV, but it becomes more personal when you hear from a native of Oak Harbor who is in the middle of helping the volunteers who are battling the conflagration. Michael Babb, Oak Harbor High School Class of 1977, said by telephone Wednesday morning that he is a Red Cross volunteer who lives in Colorado Springs. While he lives on the south side of the city and the blaze is threatening the north end, he’s been very busy as a volunteer. The semi-retired personal chef is cooking meals for the firefighters battling the roaring fire, as well is the 30,000 refugees scattered around town, mainly in high schools and other civic buildings. Babb said 15,000 acres have burned so far and last night the well known Flying W Ranch, known by many for its equestrian outdoor experiences, went up in flames. “It’s gone,” he said sadly. Even the Air Force Academy has been required to evacuate. “It’s unbelievable,” Babb said of the weather conditions. Yesterday, the temperature was 101 degrees, which he described as “unheard of” in
the area, and winds whipped the flames at 65 mph. While the fire at the north end is most threatening, everyone in Colorado Springs is affected, Babb said. “It’s very, very smokey everywhere,” he said. When not cooking, he’s handing out bottles of water to anyone in need. Babb called the Whidbey News-Times because supplies are running short and more donations are needed. “I know the people of Oak Harbor and I love Oak Harbor,” Babb said. “I know how generous they are.” His mother, Bev Babb, still lives in town and worked for many years for the Whidbey News-Times.

IN OUR OPINION
Try to refrain from fireworks It’s around midnight, there’s a loud boom, your house shakes and your dog starts howling in terror. Welcome to Afghanistan, U.S.A., better known as Whidbey Island. It’s impossible for state or local governments to ban fireworks due to the nearby Indian reservations that enjoy a federal right to sell them, but efforts are made to regulate their use. Unfortunately, unless a house catches fire or a kid blows off a finger, emergency responders are stretched too thinly to respond to most noise complaints. Useless as it may be, this is another call for the safe and sane use of fireworks over this Independence Day holiday. If you must use them, think of your own house, family, friends and pets, and think of your neighbors. Would you want someone next door blasting mortars into the wee hours of the night? The explosive devices used out there far exceed the legal limit for state-approved fireworks, and even outguns anything sold on the reservations. We can only assume some creative folks are making their own boom devices, perhaps using black powder or bundled sparklers. Then there are those darned bottle rockets that leave their launch pads in one yard with the rocket coming to a flaming rest on someone else’s roof. For a lot of people, that’s their idea of fun. This year may be even worse than prior years. The wise people of Washington passed an initiative that not only makes hard liquor more expensive, but it makes it widely available. No more special trips to the liquor store or whining that no liquor is available on Sunday or holidays. Just load the trunk with fireworks, stop at the friendly neighborhood grocery store for a few bottles of 90 proof Kickapoo Joy Juice, and head to the beach for a night of revelry. Don’t worry, dozens of people will be out on the beaches July 5 cleaning up your mess, and firefighters will still be hosing down a few hot spots. You won’t even notice, thanks to the lingering effects of the Joy Juice. Forget about shooting off fireworks this year. It’s dangerous, it’s unneighborly and it’s extremely expensive. If you feel that you must be shooting off mortars and other high explosives, there’s a U.S. Army recruiting station in Oak Harbor that would love to have you.

Letters to the editor Raise a stink about propane In response to Bruce Howard’s recent propane letter, thank you for writing! I was having real issues with my propane costs as well. I was on an auto-fill and budget payment plan with Ferrellgas. But they were charging me way more than some of my friends and neighbors, supplied by other propane companies. You can call around and get prices, but that is only their stated current price at that time. Who knows if they are competitive once you are their customer for a while. I would love to see a watch dog group take up this issue! I started emailing my friends to see what they
were charged, then I called my supplier to complain about the difference. You expect some variation, but not dollars per gallon! I was totally prepared to switch to another supplier. It took persistence, because my “local” office didn’t return my calls. So I went above them until I had the regional managers attention. I was able to get on a plan that keeps my propane much lower than it had been. By sheer persistence alone. I am sure he was tired of hearing from me. So call around, and ask your friends to let you know what they were charged for their latest delivery, and if your bill reflects a much higher price, make a stink about it! Then compare your next fill up price, and the next. I probably over paid hundreds and hundreds

Stencils help Oak Harbor Bay Thanks to the students in Mrs. Bromme’s class at the Oak Harbor Middle School, and Mrs. Ross’ class and Mrs. Schiltze’s class at Broad View Elementary for stenciling over 150 storm drains near their schools. Thomas Honeycutt of Scout Troop 4097 organized a group to stencil 90 more storm drains. The storm drain stencils help remind
people Only Rain Down the Storm Drain. Most water going into storm drains goes untreated into open waterways like Oak Harbor Bay. To reduce pollution on our beaches, swimming and fishing areas keep toxins from entering storm drains. Wash your car on the lawn or use a commercial car wash. Pick up after your pet, bag it and throw it in the trash. Keep yard chemicals to a minimum. The city greatly appreciates the efforts of these students, scouts, teachers and parents to help clean up Oak Harbor Bay. For more information or to volunteer your group to stencil storm drains in Oak Harbor call 360-279-4762. Thank you for caring about our community. Maribeth Crandell Environmental educator

Letters to the editor The horrors of Styrofoam Our fifth grade class at Broad View has been in charge of our school recycling program all year. We recently had to figure out what to do with a large amount of expanded polystyrene (EPS), usually referred to by the trade name, Styrofoam. Some new electronic equipment had been safely packed with it, but we didn’t know what to do with it on recycling day. What we learned when we tried to find out is that EPS is a complicated problem. First of all, we learned that EPS has many uses, which means a lot of it is made and disposed of. It is made from 57 chemicals, including benzene, which is a problem because even short term exposure to it can cause serious health risks. When hot food or beverages are placed in foam containers, or when the containers are heated in a microwave, chemicals can leach into the food or beverage, creating risks to the consumer’s health. Another problem with EPS is that it is not biodegradable and because it has so many uses, a very large amount of it ends up in landfills. In 2006, 870,000 tons of polystyrene plates and cups alone showed up in landfills, plus an additional 590,000 tons of other things made from polystyrene. It can take up to
hundreds of years to dissolve and so much of it is disposed of each year. Because we want to make positive changes and contributions, we decided to find out what could be done about EPS to keep us and the environment healthy. Some communities have ways to recycle EPS used to pack fragile products. We found out, though, that recycling it has challenges, mainly involving cost. Because oil and gas prices have increased, it may cost too much to transport EPS to be recycled. Other communities have banned EPS. Both Portland, Ore. and Orange County, Calif., have done this and other cities are considering a ban, as well. Another solution is using alternatives to EPS. Companies or individuals shipping fragile products can use biodegradable packaging materials like the “peanuts” made from cornstarch or used newspapers. Restaurants can replace foam carry-out containers with paper containers. Consumers can buy hot/cold paper cups instead of foam cups. Reusing packaging “peanuts” is another solution. We learned that we can bring the packaging “peanuts” to the UPS store for reuse. We think it is important that everyone in our community become aware of the long term problems of EPS and make conscious decisions to help solve those problems. Know the health risks. Choose alternatives. Write to the mayor and legislators to see what they can

Fully qualified for commissioner It is with great honor that we write this letter in support of Jill Johnson and her campaign for Island County Commissioner District 2. Having known Jill for the past 11 years, we truly
believe that Jill will flourish in an elected official capacity. Her experience on numerous political campaigns and entities is impressive; however, her personal convictions of limited government, individual responsibility, true free market principles and common-sense real world solutions are why we endorse Jill. In addition, her dedication and devotion to her family and community are inspiring to those around her. Even during her time here in beautiful Colorado, her thoughts
and heart were back home in Oak Harbor and Island County. We whole-heartedly endorse Jill Johnson for Island County Commissioner. Jenna and Scott Spendlove Oak Harbor
Evans Republican likes Price Johnson In my 31-year career in law enforcement, I’ve observed and worked closely with many locally elected officials. Often during those years I voted for Republicans of the Dan Evans ilk, appreciating
their practicality and fiscal prudence. But I have come to a deep appreciation for the track record Helen Price Johnson has accrued in her first term. She is a natural leader with a grasp of the complexity of the issues we face as a community in these hard times. She listens, learns, and moves forward in a way that balances many competing interests. She has my vote for re-election to the Island County Board of Commissioners Michael J. O’Mahony Langley
Reduce the element of risk outside night club By Paul Newman
As long as what goes on in the Element stays in the Element, normal city and state government oversight is probably sufficient. However, when what goes on in the Element spills into the parking lot, Bayshore Drive and the streets of Oak Harbor, it concerns us all. Under prodding from the City Council, the owner agreed to take measures to address the noise, loitering, and security risks his crowded parking area poses when the Element closes in the early morning hours. Sadly, no one has noticed a difference. The last meeting of the Oak Harbor Planning Commission saw nearby residents all but pleading for help. They were supported by the pastor of a nearby church, and even the owner of a nearby night club. Unless the Planning Commission and City Council acts to prevent more mega-nightclub/gambling
Sound off parlors like the Element from locating in the central business district, the problems we have now will be multiplied ... and who will want to spend good money to live in a place like that? However, even if the city takes preventative action, the Element may be grandfathered in, and the problems under discussion will still be with us. Consequently, here is a modest proposal. 1. People behave better under bright lights. Install additional bright, eco-friendly lights in the Element’s parking area. Time them to go from 1:30 a.m. to 2:30 a.m. Make sure they point downward, and away from the residences across the street. The city of Oak Harbor must use its bully pulpit to encourage the owner of the parking area to install the extra lighting,
and pass the cost on to the owner of the Element. He already pays money to support the parking area, giving him a responsibility for what happens there. Plus, the owner of the Element insists he is ready to help keep parking area noise and crowds under control. Bright lights will be cheaper for him than hiring additional security personnel. 2. People behave better when law enforcement officers are visibly present. On Thursday, Friday, and Saturday nights, from 1:30 a.m. to 2:30 a.m., an Oak Harbor patrol vehicle should be parked in plain view across the street from the Element. The threshold for loitering infractions in Oak Harbor is under 15 minutes. Plenty of time for responsible adults to walk or drive out of the parking area. A visible police presence will discourage loitering. An occasional police “reminder” will keep it to an absolute minimum. Can the Oak Harbor Police Department spare one patrol
vehicle for one hour three days a week? Almost certainly. Even so, if emergencies sometimes require that unit to be elsewhere, everyone will understand. 3. People behave better when they know they are being televised. Install surveillance cameras focused specifically to monitor the Element’s parking area. There are already surveillance cameras on Bayshore Drive. A few more will not be costly. Spotting, discouraging, and prosecuting bad behavior will become much easier. Let us not require the Element to pay for, and to own these cameras. He is hardly a neutral party in the matter. This is a legitimate and rather small city expense, which can double as added security for what has become one of the busiest streets in Oak Harbor. The challenges posed by the Element are more widely scoped than parking lot noise, loitering, and security risks. Oak Harbor
spent tens of thousands of tax dollars developing an outstanding plan for Windjammer Park. Locating a large and raucous gambling parlor/ nightclub within 200 feet of youth baseball fields and picnicking families borders on the ridiculous ... especially when park facilities are used quite late during our long summer evenings. Locating the Element within 100 feet of teens (and younger children) waiting at the bus station for Whidbey’s free transit is equally senseless. Having the Element within 10 feet of a church crosses the line to surrealism. For the moment, let us concentrate on the Element’s parking area noise, loitering and security risks. Unless we act decisively, there is a tragic incident just waiting to happen. Paul Newman lives in Oak Harbor.

OBITUARY Helen R. Swass Learn & Play Founder Helen R. Swass, formerly Helen R. Goodman, was born September 7, 1921 in Harperville, Mississippi and passed away on June 25, 2012 at home in Oak Harbor, Washington. Her greatest love was the Lord Jesus Christ and children. But she loved everyone she knew and met and her greatest gift was conveying that love. She founded and owned the Learn & Play Kindergarten from 19571973 and was part-owner of the children’s clothing store, “Jenique.” After selling the kindergarten, she went to school and became a Licensed Vocational Nurse and worked in convalescent centers until her parents’ health failed, then became a full-time care-giver for them. After they passed on, she cared for her ailing brother and her younger sister until they also passed. Her selflessness was a great example and testimony to her favorite quote, “Christ is first, Others are second, I am third.” Her love and presence will be missed by all who loved and knew her. She was preceded in death by her husband Jack C. Goodman and second husband, Russell W Swass; her parents, Rev. James H and Grace C Sharp; her sisters Ora Smith and Grace Bishop; her brothers Rev.

OBITUARY Mary Dolores Tippets
Mary Dolores Tippets, 85, of Oroville, California died June 8, 2012, in Oroville, following a year of illness. Mary was born in Sumas, Wash., June 26, 1926, the daughter of James Henry Walker and Verna Eudora (Porter) Walker; she was raised in Everson, Wash., and was a 1944 graduate of Nooksak Valley High. Mary graduated from the US Cadet Nurse Program at St. Luke’s Hospital in Bellingham, Wash., in 1947 and upon graduating became a Registered Nurse (RN) licensed in Washington State. She immediately began work as an RN for two physicians in Bellingham, as their office nurse and assisting them in surgery at St. Luke’s Hospital. In early 1949 Mary obtained her California RN license and began work at the University Of California Hospital in San Francisco, where she advanced to night-shift Charge Nurse in the labor and delivery unit. In 1950 while in San Francisco Mary met Frank Tippets, and later that year they married. In 1951 the couple moved to San Luis Obispo, Calif., where Frank started training at California Polytechnic Sate College under the GI Bill to become a mechanical engineer, and Mary worked as a nurse at the French Hospital and began to have children. Upon Frank’s graduation from Cal Poly in 1954 he was hired as a new engineer by the General Electric Co. and the family of four moved to the places of Frank’s employment, initially at Richland,
Wash., for two years and then back to California for Frank’s transfer to GE’s newly formed engineering headquarters at San Jose for development of commercial nuclear power plants. Mary continued professional activity as an RN at local hospitals and skilled nursing facilities in the San Jose area, and as the operator of her own business providing in-service training to hospital staffs. Mary retired from professional nursing in 1990 when Frank retired from General Electric and they moved to Coupeville Wash., on Whidbey Island. Mary and Frank were active members of the Northwest Island community for 13 years, and they relocated to California in 2003 to be closer to their children. Mary loved to paint, sing, and dance, she liked and was involved in “little theater”, and she enjoyed gardening and was an expert cook. Mary is survived by her husband Frank, son William and his wife Judy, son Michael and his wife Susan, daughter Deborah and her husband Amir, son Steven and his wife Yong, daughter Kathryn and her husband Ted, four grandchildren, two great grandchildren, and a brother Glen and his wife Yumiko. In accordance with her expressed preference, Mary has been cremated and any memorial services will be at her gravesite. The service will be private. Arrangements are entrusted to Ramsey Funeral Home 530-534-3877.

ObituarY Emerline Elizabeth ‘Emily’ Rogers
Emily Rogers, 95, passed from this life on June 18, 2012, in Coupeville with her family at her side. She was born Dec. 19, 1916, in Waycross, Ga., to parents Calvin T. Walden and Lizzie Walden.She was the youngest of a family of six brothers and sisters plus ten additional siblings from her widowed father’s first marriage to Hettie Walden. Her mother, Lizzie, passed away when Emily was only three years old. Emily was raised by her brothers and sisters on a small farm near Waycross enduring the hardships of that life and the Depression of the 1930s. She and her brother moved to California at an early age to seek a new life. In San Bernardino she met and married Donald L. Rogers, who eventually became a Southern Pacific Railroad station agent and entrepreneur. The railroad job carried them to new locations over the years including Bakersfield, Calif., Hanford, Calif., Sparks, Nev., Taft, Calif., Inyokern, Calif.,
and Selma, Calif. During those years, they owned and operated several businesses, including two restaurants. She was preceded in death by husband Don in 1975 and lived in California near son Mike for 20 years and in Washington near son Mel for the last 17 years. Emily is survived by sons Mel Rogers (Deanna) of Coupeville and Mike Rogers (Rita) of Carefree, Ariz., four grandchildren, Trevor (Hannah), Tiffany, Tami and Kelly (David), and four great grandchildren, Nicholas, Bethany, Lydia and Weston. Emily cherished her twin sons and always said they were her proudest possessions. She was a wonderful mother and homemaker and enjoyed sewing and knitting. Becoming a grandmother was her next joy in life. “Aunt Emp” also stayed close to her family in Georgia over the years. Emily, with her southern accent, will always be remembered as a “Georgia Peach” and as a loving, sweet, and gentle lady. A private graveside service for Emily will be held at Sunnyside Cemetery, Coupeville, on Saturday, June 30.

Wildcat cheer team lights up camp By JIM WALLER Sports editor
The Oak Harbor High School cheer team torched the competition at the National Cheerleaders Association camp at the University of Washington last week. In honor of the upcoming Olympics, the camp theme was “Light the Fire,” and the Wildcats burned bright. Among the many honors gathered by Oak Harbor, the Wildcats won the NCA Spirit Award, which is given by the other teams to the squad that is the most friendly, courteous, outgoing and spirited. Oak Harbor’s Jember Jansen earned the Top
Cheerleader of the Camp honor and received AllAmerican status. Raeanna Wynne also earned AllAmerican recognition. The pair is now eligible to be chosen as NCA staff members after graduation. Twenty-two Wildcats, including 16 seniors, attended camp. Over the first two days of the four-day camp, Oak Harbor collected three spirit sticks, two excellent ribbons and four superior ribbons. On day four Oak Harbor took first in the Champion Chant category, performing a chant three times with perfection, timing, sharp motions and synchronicity. The Wildcats also won the Game Day competition,
which required demonstrating skills such as tumbling, jumping, rallying and cheering to get the crowd involved. This earned a bid to the NCA Nationals in Dallas. In addition to Jansen and Wynne, 10 other Wildcats were nominated for AllAmerican status: Elizabeth Adkins, Juliet Aspery, Chylah Bass, Jade Brown, Micaiah Davis, Jenny Landingin, Kaitlyn Marcus, Tyler O’Dell, BriAnna Quinn and Angel Williams. All performed three jumps, tumbling skills and the camp cheer in front of the other teams and staff members. Davis, for the second consecutive year, was recognized by the America Needs

The combined Central and South Whidbey Blue Fire softball team entered last night’s 11/12-year-old district championship game at Oak Harbor’s Volunteer Park against South Skagit with a state berth on the line. Results were not available at press time, but the outcome was most likely determined by which Blue Fire pitching staff showed up. Behind what coach Bobbie Weitzel called “phenomenal pitching,” the Blue Fire opened the tournament with a 6-4 win over South Skagit Monday. Tuesday the pitching “was just outstanding,” according to Weitzel, as Central/South Whidbey defeated North Whidbey 13-5. After South Skagit defeated North Whidbey Wednesday, it got another shot at the Blue Fire Thursday and won 18-5, settup up last night’s title tilt. Weitzel said, “It was horrible; we got blown out of the water. The other team just had good at bats.” The highlight of the game was an “amazing catch” by outfielder Maddy Kooch, Weitzel said.

Davis received two pins as recognition for her camp efforts and interaction with other campers and was asked to give the second to another deserving cheerleader. O’Dell received a pin from a Mark Morris cheerleader. Oak Harbor also dominated the lighter side of the competition, winning the Olympic style relay and the staff trivia game. Coach Robin Gohn said, “The coaching staff of Oak Harbor would like to recognize and acknowledge all the Wildcat cheerleaders for their effort, hard work, dedication and teamwork in making this such a successful camp.”
OH district chances take hit
Jim Waller/Whidbey News-Times
Coupeville’s Emily License helps pitch the Blue Fire to a win over North Whidbey Tuesday. In the win over NWLL, the Blue Fire overcame a 4-1 deficit behind a strong showing in the circle from four players (Emily License, Taylor Wimberly, Ballarae Northup and Katrina McGranahan) and a “rocksolid defense,” Weitzel said.
The defense was led by catcher Mikayla Elfrank who gunned down two runners trying to steal third. She also contributed at the plate, rapping two doubles. McGranahan paced the offense with a three-run home run.
First-place Bellingham blanked the Oak Harbor AA Legion baseball team twice this week and put the Wildcats’ bid for a district berth in jeopardy. Oak Harbor did pick up a nonleague win 6-4 Saturday over the Northwest Rebels in the only game played in the otherwise rained out Anacortes tournament. Bellingham (8-0) shut out Oak Harbor 3-0 Tuesday at Joe Martin Stadium, then stopped the ‘Cats 7-0 in Oak Harbor Thursday. That left Oak Harbor 4-6 in league (6-12 overall) and in fifth place with four conference games left. The top three teams move on to district. The four remaining games are against the two teams directly in front of Oak Harbor in the standings, Snohomish (3-3) and Lynden (5-3). Oak Harbor plays Snohomish at home at 6 p.m. Tuesday and then goes to Snohomish two days later. It plays at Lynden July 10 and hosts the Lightning July 12. First, the Wildcats go to Mount Vernon
Monday for a nonleaguer. In the win over Northwest, Oak Harbor mirrored the Rebels as each team scored one run in the first inning and two in the third. The Wildcats jumped ahead with two runs in the fifth and another in the sixth. In the first, Grant Schroeder singled and scored on Mike Maletto’s double. In the third, Brent Mertins doubled and Cory Cameron was hit by a pitch. Mertins scored on an error and Cameron on a single by Daniel Wolfe. In the fifth, Wolfe walked and Andrew Snavely singled. An error scored Wolfe, then Snavely scored on a fielder’s choice. In the sixth, Jozef Mendoza singled and, after a wild pitch, scored on Snavely’s base hit. Snavely finished 3-for-3 with a run and RBI. Maletto had two hits, including a double, and two RBI. Against Bellingham, Oak Harbor collected only seven hits in the two games, five by Grant Schroeder. In the first game, Schroeder’s two hits were it. One was a leadoff triple in the fourth, but three strikeouts ended the threat. Jack Richter pitched a four hitter for Oak Harbor. A pair of walks and two sacrifices scored a Bellingham run in the third. The other two came in the fifth on a single and four Oak Harbor errors. In Thursday’s game, Oak Harbor struck out nine times and left eight on base. Schroeder was 3-for-3 with a double.

Prayer to St. Jude
O holy St. Jude, Apostle and martyr, great in virtue and rich in miracles, near kinsman of Jesus Christ, faithful intercessor of all who invoke your special patronage in time of need, to you I have recourse from the depth of my heart and humbly beg to whom God has given such great power to come to my assistance. Help me in my present and urgent petition. In return I promise to make your name known and cause you to be invoked. St. Jude pray for us and all who invoke your aid. Amen.
The North Whidbey Aquatic Club swept all three opponents and then padded its lead in the championship finals to capture the Round Robbin meet at John Vanderzicht Pool June 22 to 24. In dual meets, the Aquajets defeated Bellingham, Snohomish and a combined team
of Anacortes and Marysville. The top six fastest individual swimmers advanced to Sunday’s finals, and NWAC again dominated. The Aquajets were paced by girls 15-and-older highpoint winner Laura Rosen, who won all eight of her individual events and set five team records.
Saturday, June 30, 2012 • Whidbey News-Times
Other high-point winners were Jerrin Concepcion, Kelly Huffer and Carl Davis; all three won all eight of their individual events. The girls 11-12 200 medley relay team of Erica Sugatan, Jillian Pape, Olivia Tungate and Huffer also set a team record, dropping a second off the old record with a 2:23.15. Frances Empinado earned the RelayBig Award, and Micah Geist took Swimmer
of the Meet honors. Event winners in the finals were Josh Byers, Concepcion, Davis, Ciara Hu, Huffer, John Middleton, Patty Miessner, Rosen, Tungate, Molly Vagt and Lawrence Zapanta.

Karate students meet the supreme instructor Martial artists throughout West attend workshop By NATHAN WHALEN Staff reporter
A group of dedicated martial artists is working to see substance trumps style. Thirty or so students practicing Shorin-Ryu Seibukan karate gathered at the Coupeville Recreation Hall recently to attended a seminar that featured a supreme instructor who flew in from Okinawa. Students attending the three-day long event came as far away as Alaska and South Dakota. Hanshi Zenpo Shimabukuro visited Whidbey Island as part of a three-stop visit across the United States. On June 15, a dozen or so black belts were on hand to fine-tune their forms, or katas, with someone who has been the a supreme instructor of the school of karate since 1969. Chris Peabody, sensei of a dojo based in Oak Harbor, said Seikuban promotes a traditional style of karate originating in Okinawa. He described the style as grounded in katas, or pre-arranged fighting sequences. Members practicing the Seibukan, which is celebrating its 50th year, are also working to ensure the style grows.
“Our goal is to make sure traditional karate is taught,” Shimabukuro said before starting a training session with students. He argued that a more sport-oriented version of karate is too flashy and lacks a lot of theory about technique, while Seibukan focuses more on a healthy body. Shimabukuro holds a 10th degree black belt and is a supreme instructor of a style of karate that was founded by his father. He is noted as being one of the first Okinawan sensei to teach karate in the United States, according to the Alaska Seibukan Karate Do, which is the website of the organization that oversees the two dojos operating on Whidbey Island. One is located in Oak Harbor while the other one is located in Langley. Last weekend’s visit marked the third trip Shimabukuro has made to Whidbey Island. He said he enjoys visiting the area and enjoying the weather, trees and nature the island offers. Whidbey Island was the second stop on his tour. He started in Portland last month and he visited Mississippi before heading back home next week. He also showed a book he created. The photo-intensive publication took him two years to complete and will help sensei teach their students.
Nathan Whalen/Whidbey News-Times
Hanshi Zenpo Shimabukuro shows a book he spent years writing that will help with the training of a traditional style of karate. To celebrate the style’s 50th year, Peabody said a group of people will visit Okinawa in October. Approximately two dozen people have signed up to join the celebration that will include practitioners from other countries including Russia, Finland, South Africa and Dubai.

Let’s all sing Wind and snow can’t stop this team like the birdies By REBECCA OLSON Staff reporter
FAITHFUL LIVING By Joan Bay Klope
Rain or shine I’m crazy about Whidbey Island. Each season gifts me with weather that supports unique experiences and I can honestly say I embrace them all with enthusiasm. But entice me with long days mixed with moderate, dry weather and I soar. I don’t mind a brown, crunchy lawn underfoot. Instead of mowing I’m kayaking. And while I’m drawn to a cozy fire, I also love to open windows around the house with abandon, inviting fresh air and outside sounds in. And I adore birds, thanks in great part to my husband the biologist who decorates our home with Sibley Bird Guides and binoculars, bird houses and feeders. Who reminds me to look up and regularly stop and listen. Winter is quiet; summer an early morning chorus of sound. In my mind, there is no better wake up call than the flute-like song of a thrush or the chirps of a robin. While watching birds is great fun, tuning your ears to recognize specific birds adds another satisfying dimension. It’s quite possible to identify unseen birds from a distance or when hidden by woodland habitat. All you must do is listen to their songs. German born Ludwig Koch made the first bird song recording in 1889 and today great compilations are readily available to birders. Songs and calls are vitally important to birds as well, who have a poor sense of smell but keen hearing. And talk about diversity! Some birds have their songs encoded at birth; others learn to sing from their fathers or nearby males. Some learn early on; others are lifelong learners. There are even specific, regional dialects. Some sing hundreds of songs; others, like the common yellowthroat, only one. Songs are musical and complex sounds usually produced by males. When females choose a mate they often evaluate a male’s health and maturity by his song. The majority of singing happens in the early morning and late afternoon and males sing to find or communicate with mates. They also sing to protect their territories by warning other males to stay away. Calls are not usually as musical and include shorter notes. Heard throughout the year from local birds, calls communicate many things between families and flocks. There are calls of warning. Some identify a food source. You will often hear babies begging to be fed this time of year. I especially enjoy hearing birds while working outside. My husband is quite good at calling birds in by making a spishing sound and watching them fly to a nearby bush or tree out of sheer curiosity is quite fun. Wednesday morning, while drinking coffee on my porch and enjoying the morning sunshine, it occurred to me that I have two choices each day. I can call and I can sing. If I call, I’m responding to something going on around me and I’m sending some kind of message. If I’m singing, I’m reaching out. I’m hoping to make connections with those within range.
Eight Oak Harbor competitors braved snow, sea and the miles of road in between to compete in the Ski to Sea marathon race over Memorial Day weekend. Team Whidbey Coffee was one of 500 teams battling in what used to be the Mount Baker Marathon, which began in 1911. There are seven events in the race from Mount Baker to Bellingham Bay. In order, Susan Briddell took on cross country skiing; Kyle Bodamer did downhill skiing; Mike Briddell was the runner; Brian Wood did road biking; John Burks and Mark Willstatter canoed; Matt Plush mountain biked; and Jackie Bykonen kayaked. The team chose their name because Whidbey Coffee is a popular hangout spot for members of the Whidbey Island Bicycle Club, which some team members are part of. “There were a lot of crazy team names on the Ski to Sea roster, but we wanted something that let everyone know that we are proud of our island,” Wood said. Not only did Dan Ollis of Whidbey Coffee allow the team to use the name, but he purchased weatherproof shirts for the team members that read “Whidbey Coffee.” The team expressed their thanks to Whidbey Coffee. The team was made up of teachers, retirees, a firefighter and a ninth-grade student, four of whom had prior Ski to Sea experience. “We were not in the event for top times; rather, we enjoyed the camaraderie of pulling a team together to represent our island. Our times were decent, which reflected solid effort and athleticism on the part of all team members. The sun was shining, our timing chip handoffs were clean and there were no significant injuries or mishaps during the all-day event so it was definitely a success,” Wood said. For Susan Briddell, cross country skier, the experience was entirely new. While she said she enjoys recreational skiing, she agreed to do the race and even made it in 59 minutes, beating her goal of one hour. “I had a great time,” she said. Susan Briddell is a secondgrade teacher at Oak Harbor Elementary School.
Team Whidbey Coffee competed in the Ski to Sea marathon race last month. Team members were Mike Briddell, Kyle Bodamer, Susan Briddell, Jackie Bykonen, Mark Willstatter, Matt Plush, Brian Wood and John Burks. Her largest obstacle was at the start line as 500 skiers took off at the same time on the fourmile course. “The biggest problem was dodging the people falling in front of me,” she said. She handed off to Bodamer, the downhill skier. His course consisted of two and one-half miles of skiing and hiking up ski slopes. Bodamer, a ninth-grade student at Coupeville High School, was unable to be reached for comment. This was Mike Briddell’s second time participating as a runner on the eight-mile trek from the upper lodge at Mount Baker to the Washington Department of Transportation facility 2,000 feet below. He teaches science at North Whidbey Middle School. “Eight miles downhill takes its toll on the legs. The hardest part is when you hit the flats with about a half mile to go. After running downhill for that long, the flats seem hard,” Briddell said, adding that the slight incline into the finish was a killer. He clocked in at just over 55 minutes feeling good about his run. “I had a great day participating with a great team,” Mike Briddell said. He handed off to Wood, road biker and Coupeville High School science teacher. When he got to his starting line, it was about 38 degrees with several hours to wait until his leg began. “For awhile, everything was pretty relaxed, but then the band stopped playing and the first
team number was called, and all the riders quickly snapped to attention,” Wood said. Wood took off on the 42-mile course, facing strong winds while a few riders formed pace line to fight air resistance. He rode alone until the final four miles of the course, when he formed a pace line with a few other riders, then handed off with a time of one hour and 49 minutes. Burks and Willstatter set off in the canoe for 18 and one-half miles of racing on the Nooksack River. Both are retired, Burks from the pharmaceutical industry and Willstatter from an electronic business. With water temperatures of 45 to 50 degrees, Willstatter said safety was their first priority. They’d prepared by taking a class in April, since they hadn’t been in a canoe since Boy Scouts, and are also part of the Puget Sound Dragon Boat club in Oak Harbor. While the pair didn’t face any trouble, they saw a number of their competitors fished from the water and one boat pinned against logs by the current. “Our trip was mostly uneventful except for one occasion when one of the supposed helpers in a sheriff’s department launch picked exactly the wrong time to accelerate up stream, causing a wake that might well have swamped us if not for quick action by John (Burks) to turn us perpendicular to the wake,” Willstatter said. They almost made their time goal of two and one-half hours; they finished at two hours and 34 minutes.
“Ski-to-Sea was a great experience. We stayed alive and dry and even almost met our time goal,” Willstatter said. Plush, a firefighter in Woodinville, headed on the 13-mile mountain bike leg. This was his first time doing the bike leg and he completed in under an hour, placing him in the top 25 percent of riders. While Plush said the wind was a challenge, the route itself wasn’t too technical. “It was very good. The festival afterward was great,” Plush said of Ski to Sea. Bykonen finished the race as the kayaker. She teaches physical education and coaches basketball at Coupeville High School but plans to move to Bellingham this summer. In the past, she has done the running leg but was excited to try the challenge of kayaking five miles. “I was so glad I did not capsize in my kayak, and was even more thrilled that I now know that I can paddle in choppy water,” Bykonen said. While she said she wasn’t happy with her time because she had to backtrack when she missed a buoy, she said she had a wonderful experience participating in the race and expanding her skills. “We all met at the end to watch our kayaker paddle in to Maritime Park and run up to ring the bell that signals the end of the race. Afterward we all went to the Big Fat Fish restaurant in Fairhaven and recounted our day’s events,” Wood said. “And we’re looking forward to doing it again next year,”

investigators haven’t identified a person of interest. Hawley said he’s literally been looking through the list of all red and burgundy cars registered in the area to see if anyone matches the profile. The suspect was driving a red-colored sedan when he stopped in front of the Hemenway Place home, went into the yard, stroked the girl’s hair and told her to get into his car. The apparent kidnapping attempt occurred at about 7:45 p.m. As Hawley explained, the girl was in the front yard momentarily to retrieve a ball that had gone over the fence from the backyard, where her family was gathered. After the encounter, the frightened girl bolted to the backyard and told her parents. Hawley said the little girl was able to provide a good description of the man. The man is described as a 25- to 35-year-old white male, with a medium build and standing about 6 feet tall. He had a short goatee without a mustache and brown hair with dyed streaks. He was wearing sunglasses. The suspect was dressed in jeans, black flip flops and a distinctive black T-shirt with a “pirate style” gray skull and bones. The man’s vehicle was a dark red or burgundy, newer, mid-sized, four-door sedan. The car sped off down Airline Way. Hawley said that based on the generalized profile of the people who commit these types of crimes, the suspect probably does not have a criminal history and may live in the area or even the neighborhood. Hawley urges anyone with any information about the incident or knows someone who fits the description to call 911 or contact him via ICOM dispatch at 360-679-9567. Clinton
