Girl, 8, describes abduction attempt

Hizon allowed to ‘phone it in’ for council meeting By JESSIE STENSLAND Staff reporter

Members of the Oak Harbor City Council decided to suspend their own rules to allow Councilwoman Tara Hizon to participate in the next meeting over the phone from another state. The council members touted the temporary rule change as a move toward modernity, but the issue isn’t without concerns over open and transparent governance. Hizon announced at the city council meeting last week that she will be in the Appalachian Mountains during the July 3 council meeting. She asked her fellow council members to suspend a council policy that states council members must be present at meetings to participate so she can, in essence, phone it in. The other council members voiced support for the idea, though Joel Servatius said he had some

concerns about possible glitches. In fact, the members indicated that the rule should be permanently amended to allow remote and electronic participation of elected officials. “It’s about time we come out of the Stone Age,” Councilman Rick Almberg said. “It only makes sense that we try to accommodate decision makers electronically,” he added. While none of the council members considered open government issues aloud, interim City Attorney Grant Weed broached the subject. He said the state’s Open Public Meetings Act doesn’t address teleconferencing, probably because it was adopted back in 1971. He said the Supreme Court hasn’t ruled on the issue. Weed pointed out that the Municipal Research and Service Center has published an opinion that it’s probably OK. Attorney Greg Overstreet, an

New rules may slice dancing pizza people By JESSIE STENSLAND Staff reporter

Deputies are searching for a man who tried to abduct an 8-year-old girl in the front yard of her Oak Harbor home Sunday night. Lt. Mike Hawley with the Island County Sheriff’s Office said he has no doubt that the alarming incident occurred and that, based on the profile of child abductors, it’s likely that the man will try again someday. “The details from the victim were so specific, clear and unchanging,” he said, describing the girl as very bright and articulate. The Sheriff’s Office will be releasing a sketch of the suspect within the next 24 hours. Check the NewsTimes website for updates. Hawley explained that the entire family was in the backyard of the Hemenway Place home Sunday. The girl was playing with other kids when a ball flew over the fence and into the front yard. As the girl went to the front of the house to retrieve the ball, a man driving a red car stopped in the street. He walked into the yard, touched the girl’s hair and told her to get into his car. The frightened girl bolted to the backyard and told her parents. “She was trembling and had trouble speaking at first,” Hawley said. See abduct, A7

Oak Harbor’s dancing pizza people may have to hang up their dancing shoes if a proposed sign ordinance is adopted. The Oak Harbor Planning Commission has been working on a rewrite of the city’s sign code since the council adopted an interim ordinance last year to address concerns about the legality of rules related to campaign signs. The planning commission voted at their last meeting to forward the

sign code draft recommendations to the City Council. It will first go to a committee before coming to the full council. The draft lists four types of signs that can be placed in the public right-of-way, but missing from the list are signs held by individuals --- whether dancing pizzas or folks dressed like the Statue of Liberty. Senior Planner Ethan Spoo said the planning commission discussed the sign wavers, who they dubbed the “dancing pizza people.” Under

Girl, 12, allegedly raped in woods Coupeville teenager faces child rape charge By JESSIE STENSLAND Staff reporter

An 18-year-old Coupeville student is accused of raping a girl in a woods after she sneaked out of her grandmother’s home to meet him at night, court documents indicate. Prosecutor charged Sean O’Dell in Island County Superior Court May 23 with

the rape of a child in the second degree. He pleaded not guilty earlier this month. Court documents indicate that the 12-year-old girl and her 13-year-old friend had been hanging out in Coupeville with O’Dell on May 21. The girls made plans to sneak out of their homes that night to meet up with O’Dell, but only the younger girl was able to get out of her home. O’Dell and the girl walked into a nearby woods where the three of them had spent time together during the day.

County water board names new members The Island County Commissioners have appointed two new members to the Water Resource Advisory Committee. Robert Boehm of Greenbank was reappointed to Position 9 and Robert Sweeton of Oak Harbor was selected for Position 2 by commissioners during the board’s Monday meeting in

Coupeville. The advisory committee has 12 members and was formed in 1999 to make water recommendations to the commissioners concerning matters of resource planning and management. Both Boehm and Sweeton were appointed by unanimous vote.

The girl told an investigator that O’Dell started kissing her and asked to have sex, but she said she didn’t want to. O’Dell allegedly raped her, even as she told him to stop, started crying and put her hands up to push him away, according to the report by Deputy Chris Peabody with the Coupeville Marshal’s Office. The girl said O’Dell stopped after she pulled away because of the pain, the report states. He walked her back to her grandmother’s home in silence.

Pair sought on cocaine charge By JESSIE STENSLAND Staff reporter

A man and woman caught sleeping inside a running car with an interior bespeckled in white powder were recently charged with cocaine possession, court records indicate. Prosecutors charged the two Coupeville residents, 44-year-old Barry Angasan and 57-year-old Janet Buchanan, in Island County Superior Court May 3 with possession of the drug.

Angasan woke up when the officer knocked on the window, but went back to

Oak Harbor gives up on parts of land-use lawsuit against the county By JESSIE STENSLAND Staff reporter

A Whidbey Island environmental group is claiming that the city of Oak Harbor has abandoned the main issue in an appeal of Island County commissioners’ decision regarding residential growth. The appeal concerns the city’s attempt to bring 180 acres, including part of the historic Fakkema farm west of Oak Harbor, into city limits to accommodate 20 years of projected population growth. After a five-year delay, the county commissioners rejected the city’s request to expand the urban growth area, allowing only 18 commercially zoned acres into the UGA. Property must first be placed in the UGA before

being annexed into the city, so the action hinders city officials’ plans to expand city boundaries for residential development. City officials appealed the county’s decision to the Western Washington Growth Management Hearings Board, but lost on all 16 issues argued. The City Council voted this year to appeal to Thurston County Superior Court. The Whidbey Environmental Action Network, a South Whidbey group known as WEAN, is an intervenor in the lawsuit, arguing on the county’s side. WEAN released a press release Friday announcing that the city has now abandoned its legal claim that the county must grant “deference” to the city. The state’s Growth Management

“The city will not be permitted to raise either of these issues again. We’re glad the city has finally decided to stop wasting taxpayers’ money by raising legal issues that have no basis in law.” Steve Erickson, Whidbey Environmental Action Network

Act grants the authority of determining UGA boundaries to counties. WEAN notes that the city’s new attorney didn’t mention the deference issue or the previous challenge to WEAN’s status in the litigation, effectively abandoning both issues. “The city will not be permitted to raise either of these issues again,” WEAN member Steve Erickson said in a press release. “We’re glad the city has finally decid-

ed to stop wasting taxpayers’ money by raising legal issues that have no basis in law.” Erickson argued against the city’s claim of deference before the hearings board. Margery Hite, the former city attorney, originally handled the appeal, but she and the subsequent city attorney, Bill Hawkins, have both been fired. The city has contracted with another attorney to handle the appeal.

County water resource board names members The Island County Commissioners have appointed two new members to the Water Resource Advisory Committee. Robert Boehm of Greenbank was reappointed to Position 9 and Robert Sweeton of Oak Harbor was

selected for Position 2 by the county commissioners during the board’s June 18 meeting in Coupeville. The advisory committee has 12 members and was formed in 1999 to make water recommendations to the commissioners concerning

pers. As of the June 13, meeting of the commissioners, Patton was the only person to apply for his position. The original application window closed Tuesday.

They remained married for 57 years until his death in 1998. They traveled with her brother Frank and sister-in-law Carol Cernese annually for years. Terry lived most of her life in Brooklyn, the city where she was born and loved. Illness prompted a move to live with her son and daughter-in-law in 1997, where she quickly became an active participant in the Oak Harbor Senior Center. Terry loved the poker and bingo games and especially loved the trips to the casinos. Terry was blessed with two great caregivers, companions and friends, Deloris Jetton and Gail Papp, who spent countless hours accompanying her on her daily outings and introducing her to McDonald ice cream sundaes.

IN OUR OPINION

Ports aren’t a pot of gold The Port Coupeville made a wise decision in deciding to adopt a policy regarding how port money is handed out to nonprofit groups in the area. Always struggling for money, the port commissioners nonetheless gave $1,000 to the Penn Cover Water Festival last year and $500 to the Whidbey Island Farm Tour. Coupeville’s port will now pattern its donations after a policy adopted by the Port of South Whidbey, which recently doled out about $12,000 to various groups, including one that stages a Friday night street event in Langley. While a policy to govern such donations is good, the commissioners should rethink the entire idea of giving tax dollars to nonprofits, no matter how appealing the cause. Those seeking the money always use the same reasoning, that their project will enhance economic development, boosting business for shops and inns. Port commissioners should, however, be universally skeptical of such requests. The groups seeking the money are well tended, and their projects all have merit, but they’re not something those who pay taxes to the ports should be forced to support. The Port of Coupeville is tied up in keeping the Coupeville Wharf maintained and functional, as well as operating the expensive Greenbank Farm. It doesn’t have the money to hand out to other organizations. The Port of South Whidbey maintains several parks and boat ramps it has built and is presently consumed by expanding the Langley Marina. It too should not be handing out tax dollars to the myriad groups that come to them with fine ideas for “economic development.” The ports should busy themselves solely with projects that are directly related to the ports: Building and maintaining boat ramps, public boating or air facilities, improving marinas and other concrete public projects. The ports’ funds come from the taxpayers, who pay about 15 cents per thousand to support the port. That’s about $45 for a $300,0000 house. Most taxpayers would no doubt rather seen their money go toward concrete, bolts, a piece of wood or an inch of waterfront rather than brochures to promote some attraction. Port commissioners should remember their role, who’s paying the bills, and think about whether they really should be giving other people’s money away to pet causes, no matter how worthy they may sound.

Letters to the editor Working to keep Penn Cove healthy

The MV Deep Sea is gone from Penn Cove but not forgotten. Whidbey Audubon Society closely followed the incident since the beginning. We had members out on the beaches each day, monitoring for fuel leaks and impacted wildlife. Our chapter’s first priority was for the safety of the responders who extinguished the boat fire and for the workers who plugged the leaks. The private contractors and Washington Department of Ecology worked diligently and efficiently to contain the spill and remove the threat. Whidbey Audubon remains vigilant for signs the fuel and other toxic elements have been passed up

the food chain. Penn Cove hosts numerous bird and mammal species vulnerable to contamination. Our chief concern is for the breeding colonies of Pigeon Guillemots, seabirds related to puffins, that nest in burrows in the bluffs around the cove. Their nesting success rate this summer will be monitored and compared to the results from our ongoing Pigeon Guillemot Breeding Survey, now in its 9th year. It’s not Whidbey Audubon Society’s responsibility to assess blame or point fingers. We are advocating for the Washington Department of Fish and Wildlife to do a complete Natural Resources Damage Assessment that would include surveying the health of small fish and, of course, the cove’s famous mussels. Our chapter plans to encourage development of

an improved system of tracking and removal of derelict vessels. We’ll also be in contact with Audubon chapters across the state to help identify potential spill hazards in salt and fresh water, and to give them the benefit of our knowledge attained from this incident. All of us are important stakeholders in Penn Cove: the hospitality industry in Coupeville, Penn Cove Shellfish and their customers, the casual beachcomber, and those of us who enjoy the sight of water birds and harbor seals. Together, we can keep the cove scenic and healthy. Steve Ellis, president Whidbey Audubon Society

Friends are there when it counts Delmon

and

Juanita

Anderson and their family wish to offer their heartfelt thanks to friends and acquaintances who have played an important role in Delmon’s rehabilitation following his Jan. 23 accident. The constant encouragement and support given is priceless. We thank Dad’s fellow Oak Harbor Lions Club members for building the ramp at the family home and offering medical equipment. You have all made a difference by “being there” and we now look forward to Delmon gaining more strength and ability to become as independent as he can within the family home at last. Being part of such a compassionate community is certainly a blessing to us all. Sincerely: Families of Doug Anderson, Roger Anderson, Judy (Anderson)Biddle and Jeff Anderson

Coupeville Lions Club member Dale Riddle assembles a bird feeder to sell during the “Biggest and Best in Our World Garage Sale” that takes place this weekend at Coupeville Elementary School. Volunteers have been working all week to fill the school’s Multi-Purpose Room, covered play area and everything in between with tools, bikes, books, artwork, clothes and more that will be sold during the two-day sale. A preview takes place Friday, June 29 from noon to 6 p.m. The starting line drops Saturday morning and the sale goes from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. and continues Sunday from 9 a.m. to 1 p.m. Proceeds fund the Lions Club’s many community programs on Central Whidbey Island.

council CONTINUED FROM A1 “The people need to be able to see their elected officials,” he said. “They need to be able to see body language and watch people speak. There’s more to a meeting than just the audio.” In addition, people could worry that an elected official is receiving input from someone during the meeting that nobody can see. Overstreet agrees that there’s little guidance in statutes or case law, but he understands that emergencies may occur. “If this became a regular practice, we would have an

OPMA problem,” he said. Likewise, Tim Ford, the attorney general’s ombudsman on open government, looked into the issue and concluded that a governing body may “attend” a meeting through teleconference as long as it’s in compliance with other requirements of the act. “While it may be good policy to require such physical attendance, the OPMA must be construed broadly to fulfill its purpose,” he wrote. In an interview, Hizon said she would prefer to “attend” the meeting through Skype so people could see her, but it isn’t possible where she will be. She said she’s excited to be the guinea pig for the council’s first foray into pointed out that the proposed code is just a draft and could change as it goes through the public process. The public will have plenty of chances to speak on the issue. Like many communities in the state, the city of Oak Harbor experienced a proliferation of sign-waving dancers since the economy tanked. Most commonly in Oak Harbor, dancing pizza people are out advertising Little Caesar’s on the sidewalk in front of the Safeway parking lot. During tax season it’s not uncommon to see costumed folks dressed as the Statue of Liberty advertising for Liberty Tax in the same area. The City Council adopted

teleconferencing. She will be speaking through a speakerphone that will be set at a microphone. Hizon said she understands there may be concerns, but she feels it’s preferable to having elected officials absent from meetings. She said she’s in favor of permanently changing the rule so that teleconferencing is allowed, but she agrees there should be limits on the practice. Hizon said city staff members are currently working on updating the council’s policies based on recommendations from an expert in parliamentary procedures. The teleconference change may be wrapped into the amendments. an interim ordinance last year that strikes a section of city code which placed time limits on the posting of campaign signs. The measure came out after a city code enforcement officer told Scott Dudley, then a mayoral candidate and councilman, that his campaign signs would have to come down. Under the code, they could not be posted more than 60 days before an election. The city’s legal department researched the issue and recommended that the time limit be removed because of constitutional concerns. The planning commission members decided to take a larger look at the sign code and recommended a revision.

Some honeymoons do last forever Larry and Barbara Lister celebrated their 50th wedding anniversary on June 24, 2012. They were married in Palo Alto, Calif. on June 24, 1962. They met at a roller skating place when Barbara Lister was 16 and her sister bowled Larry Lister over while roller skating. “I really did pick him up at the skate place,” Barbara Lister said. After suffering a number of cancers and more than 100 surgeries, Barbara Lister said most men would have left, but Larry Lister never did. “We can really say we have lived through hell and high water, but as long as we have each other we feel we have and can wallop anything. We still go on dates and he still calls me his bride and is a wonderful husband, father, grandfather. I feel very blessed to have made it through these 50 years with him,” Barbara Lister said. The couple has lived in Oak Harbor for 22 years and have three grown daughters, six grandchildren and two great-grandchildren.

and standing about 6 feet tall. He had a short goatee without a mustache, which Hawley described as a “soul patch,” and brown hair with dyed streaks. The suspect was wearing jeans, black flip flops and a distinctive black T-shirt with a “pirate style” gray skull and bones, according to Hawley. 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 isn’t likely to have a criminal history and may live in the area or even the neighborhood. “He would seem normal,” Hawley said. “He may be the type of individual who people would be shocked to discover did something like this.” 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 360697-9567.

Babe Ruth emphasizes development, not wins By JIM WALLER Sports editor

With a philosophy that emphasizes developing players, the Oak Harbor Babe Ruth baseball program looks for success in the future and growth today. Coach Bill Young said, “Many players had opportunities to expand their experience and capabilities by playing multiple positions, pitching and having nearly equal playing time over the course of the season.” With giving players equal playing time and a shot at different positions, Young is willing to take a hit in the win column by not playing his best athletes in their strongest positions: “Because we were focusing on player development, we lost games in which we held early leads but succumbed to errors as the game progressed.” Oak Harbor sports an 8-20 record. Young said, “At times I need to remind myself that although many are league-age 14, they are mostly first-year Babe Ruth or the equivalent of league-age 13 with respect to fundamental baseball knowledge and experience. While most of the competition have been together for two and three years in competitive baseball, the Oak Harbor players are facing some of the challenges for the first time.” Early in the season, Young emphasized arm strength, weights and baseball-strength conditioning drills. He said, “The difference

Little League begins playoffs It’s District 11 tournament time for North and Central Whidbey Little League all-star teams. Softball (11- and 12-year-olds) opened the action Monday at Volunteer Park when a combined South and Central Whidbey team tangled with South Skagit. North Whidbey faced the winner Tuesday. (Results were not available at press time.) North Whidbey Little League will also host three other tournaments. Anacortes and Burlington-Edison begin 9-10 softball at Volunteer Park at noon Saturday. The winner takes on a combined North and Central Whidbey team at 4 p.m. Sunday. In Junior Baseball (13-14) at Fort Nugent Park, North Whidbey and South Skagit begin a best-of-three series at 1 p.m. Sunday. Windjammer Park is home of the 11-12 baseball tournament which opens with Sedro-Woolley and Burlington-Edison at 12:30 p.m. Saturday, July 7. North Whidbey debuts against the winner of South Skagit and Anacortes Sunday, July 8, at 3:30 p.m. In 9-10 baseball at South Whidbey at noon Saturday, North Whidbey takes on Anacortes and Central Whidbey meets South Whidbey. In 10-11 baseball, North Whidbey and Central Whidbey square off at 2:30 p.m. Saturday at Sedro-Woolley’s Kiwanis Fields.

was subtle at first; however, in recent weeks I have witnessed players throwing on the mark to home plate from the outfield that previously could not make the throw from second base to home plate.” Young said he and assistant coach Dominique Herring spent considerable time teaching the fundamentals of the game while stressing “the importance of an education” and that “homework has priority.” Young said, “With 90 out of every 100 scholarships going for academics, and only two or three for baseball, it means keep the grades up in order to play ball at college.” “Our goal is to train and educate while providing playing experience,” he said. That goal shifts, however, as the team heads to the post season. District begins next week, and unlike the regular season, the goal will be to win each game and earn a trip to state. The format for district, which will be played in Burlington, has not been determined. Oak Harbor will either open with Sedro-Woolley at 6 p.m. Monday, July 2, or against BurlingtonLa Connor Thursday, July 5. The Oak Harbor Babe Ruth team consists of 13-year-olds Trent Benson, Robert Herring, Jared Hunt and Kevyn Johnson; and 14-yearolds Christian Bertram, Sean Erskine, Alex Harrison, Fred Miller, Allen Peruelo, Preston Rankin, Tyler Snavely, Quentin Tungate, Ryan Valencia, Max Van Dam and Noah Zuniga.

Haley Garden’s garden is her childhood paradise. From a koi pond dotted with lily pads perfect for swishing feet on a warm day, to tree forts she plays in with her younger sister, to the outdoor room used for her older sister’s wedding, the Gardens’ garden is ripe with wonderful memories. Experience their garden and six other North Whidbey beauties Saturday, July 7 during the annual Oak Harbor Garden Club Garden Tour and Tea. Enjoy tea and treats while learning tips and tricks for your own garden. Haley, 17, and her mom, Melissa Garden, and their family have worked on the garden since moving into the home 12 years ago. “Our yard was crooked, it was made of straw and grass,” Melissa Garden said, adding that their only tool at the time was a wheelbarrow. “It’s just work. Work that we love. It’s therapeutic.” “Everything we’ve done we did ourselves,” she added, although not having a blank spot to start with added to the difficulty. “It’s been a learning process and we’ve loved it.” Now, a green lawn separates the outdoor room, a wide space surrounded by bushes and benches and shaded by trees, from a greenhouse, cutting garden and raised vegetable beds. Water runs from an old fire hydrant into the koi

pond, with a bench next to it from which to enjoy the burbling water, bird songs and variety of blooms. The cutting garden is Haley Garden’s favorite area because the rainbow of brightly colored flowers make for gorgeous bouquets. Campanula flowers shaped like long bells bloom pink and purple beside vibrant orange calendula flowers. Haley Garden sometimes sells her bouquets but she often gives them away, including to a favorite teacher who retired. “I like to make bouquets and make people happy with them,” Haley Garden said. But her love of plants doesn’t stop at the eyes. As a member of Oak Harbor High School’s culinary team, which took fifth place at the national competition this year, Haley Garden also likes to explore the aspect of taste. The greenhouse is where she often goes to pick tomatoes, cucumbers and herbs. She was thrilled when her mom brought home a little Meyer lemon tree because the lemons were an ingredient in the culinary team’s award winning meal. “I just love the smell and trying something new,” Haley Garden said, pointing out a tiny, green lemon on the tree. “I’m excited!” All of their plants are organic and grown from seed. “People will love to see this. Maybe it’s a doable thing,” said Judy Biddle, publicity chair for the

Melissa Garden and her daughter, Haley Garden, will open their garden to the community during the Oak Harbor Garden Club garden tour Saturday, July 7. A favorite spot of theirs is the koi pond surrounded by flowers and an old fire hydrant that pours water into the pond. Oak Harbor Garden Club. She added that upon seeing how the Gardens made their greenhouse work, viewers will want to go home and try it themselves. “I hope people take out of it a learning opportunity,” Haley Garden said of garden tour visitors. She’s also looking forward to meeting the visitors and hearing their preferences and ideas for her garden. Along with learning tips and tricks from their hard work, Melissa Garden hopes people just enjoy themselves. “I hope people feel relaxed and peaceful,” she said. “In the garden, I have so many memories with my cousins, eating as many fruits as we can and hanging out in the forest and having forts,” Haley Garden said. She attributes those fun times for building meaningful relationships instead of playing video games. A unique part of their garden is the shaded haven housing Haley Garden’s and her sister’s tree forts. Trees grow tall, with stone paths leading into the forested island. “We love playing out here, we love playing outside,” Haley Garden said. From the fruit tree filled chicken enclosure to the bushes of sweet

A sampling of Skagit Valley College Whidbey Campus students celebrate their recent graduation.

www.WhiDBEYNEWSTIMES.com

Wednesday, June 27, 2012 • Whidbey News-Times

SVC Whidbey hands out degrees Skagit Valley College Whidbey Island Campus held its annual commencement on Saturday, June 16 in Oak Harbor with 122 students walking in the ceremony. This year, Skagit Valley

College plans to confer a record-setting 1,277 degrees, certificates, and diplomas, with the following at the Whidbey Island Campus and the South Whidbey Center: 111 academic transfer

degrees; 137 professional/ technical degrees and certificates; 6 high school diplomas; among the graduates, 16 Running Start students received their high school diplomas and associate’s degrees. This year, the age of the graduating class ranged from 17 to 66. Each year, Whidbey Island Campus students recognize faculty and staff members who demonstrate superior performance inside and outside the classroom. The Exceptional Full-time Faculty award was presented to Mike Swietzer (Anacortes), Marine Technology Department chair. The Exceptional Parttime Faculty award was presented to Kristen Hoffbuhr (Anacortes), an instructor in the Science Department. The Exceptional Fulltime Staff award was presented to Ann Avary (Port Townsend), director of the Center of Excellence – Marine Manufacturing and Technology. The Exceptional Part-time Staff award was presented to Cliff Barnes (Anacortes), who is with the SVC Security Department and is a Skagit Valley College alum. In addition, the students recognized Laura Martinez for her dual roles this year with the Program Board and Associated Students of Skagit Valley College. Serving as this year’s commencement speaker was SVC alum Mark Litton of Sedro-Woolley who shared his inspiring story of entering college as an older student and realizing his dream of becoming a doctor. During his studies at SVC, Litton was awarded the President’s Medal for academic achievement as well as the Sydney S. McIntyre, Jr. Skagit Valley College Memorial Scholarship. After graduating from SVC in 2005, he attended Western Washington University where he earned a double major in Biology and Anthropology. Currently, Mark Litton is completing his Pacific Northwest University of Health Sciences core rotations at Skagit Valley Hospital. He will then apply to a residency program and plans to finish his medical training in three to seven years.
