Island County Sheriff Mark Brown listens to a discussion among the Island County commissioners last week concerning a proposed sales tax for the law and justice community.

Island County Commissioner Angie Homola talk about a proposed law and justice sales tax. It appears that the issue will not appear on ballots this year.

Board balks at law and justice tax By JUSTIN BURNETT Staff reporter

It’s looking more and more as though voters this year will not be deciding on a special sales tax to bolster law and justice funding in Island County. The Island County commissioners discussed the issue at two public meetings over the past week, and although none seem to doubt the need, the proposal appears to have sunk under a host of concerns, from questions of timing and support to whether or not a sales tax is really the best mechanism to drum up additional funding for cops and courts. Commissioner Helen Price Johnson, chairwoman of the board, said in an interview Monday that something may well move forward in the future but right now there are just too many issues that still need to be hammered out. It’s not the outcome Island County

Sheriff Mark Brown and Prosecutor Greg Banks, two of the loudest voices behind the proposal, have been hoping for. Both men manage departments that are in need of additional staffing and wanted the measure on a ballot this year. “These arguments can go on forever,” Brown said. “I need something now.” “I need revenue for my agency badly,” he said. Banks said he too was disappointed. The board has known about the serious funding problems facing the law and justice community for some time and could have been working for months to prepare for a November ballot measure. Due to time constraints and hesitancy, it’s now clear that won’t happen. “For a practical matter, it’s dead for lack of action,” Banks said. Earlier this month, the Island County Law and Justice Council sub-

mitted a letter to the board requesting that it place a ballot measure before voters for a three-tenths of 1 percent sales tax. It would cost an extra 3 cents on a $10 purchase. If passed, the special would generate an estimated $2.2 million per year, with two-thirds going to the county and the rest divided among municipalities. The letter did not suggest a specific time to run the ballot measure, though Brown said he personally had been hoping to do so this year. It did however, recommend that language be added to any measure that would stipulate the money raised would only be spent on criminal justice. State law requires that the money from the special tax only be spent on law and justice needs. However, it does not prevent the board from taking back or supplanting the same amount from the benefiting department’s See tax, A2

For the right price, and with a few conditions, the Whidbey Island Marathon could be for sale. Oak Harbor Mayor Scott Dudley confirmed Wednesday that he not only would consider selling the city’s marathon, but that he’s already gotten a nibble from a Central Whidbey-based nonprofit group and that a meeting with organization leaders will take place later this month. The purpose of the meeting is to discuss the particulars of the marathon and whether or not the group might be interested in buying the event outright or simply running it for the city. “We’ll sit down with them and explain everything that goes into running the marathon and see if they flinch,” Dudley said. Elected last November, Oak Harbor’s new mayor has believed for some time that the city should shed itself of the annual event, which it purchased from race founder John Kaiser in 2009 for $50,000. Although a race coordinator is contracted to do much of the work, city employees also assist in putting on the marathon and the job takes away from their primary duties, Dudley said.

Also, the event might be more successful if were to be run by a non-profit group as many marathon runners are selective about the races they participate in because they want the proceeds to go to a good cause. Dudley said such an organization might be able to leverage additional volunteers as well, which could widen the profit margin for the group. Ironically, Dudley was instrumental in the effort to acquire the marathon. A city councilman at the time, he chaired a committee tasked with studying the possible purchase and the advisory group ultimately recommended the city move ahead. However, Dudley argues that his vision was never followed, that his support for the purchase was based on the condition that it would be run or operated by a nonprofit. The city should not be in the marathon business, he said. The group that may be interested in the event is the Whidbey General Hospital Foundation. Established in 1981, its mission is to support the hospital and community health endeavors through public awareness and the development and management of charitable resources, according to its website.

Cub Scout leader pleads guilty to rape, molestation charges News-Times staff

A Oak Harbor Cub Scout leader is awaiting sentencing after pleading guilty Tuesday to several charges of child molestation and child rape. Anthoney Polubinski, 30, pleaded guilty July 17 in Island County Superior Court

to child molestation in the first degree — with aggravating circumstances; indecent liberties — with aggravating circumstances; child molestation in the second degree; rape of a child in the third degree; possessing depictions of minors in sexually explicit conduct in the first degree;

and obstructing — intimidating a witness, according to a news release from the Island County Sheriff’s Office. The child molestation and child rape charges include a “special allegation” that that victim was particularly vulnerable and the defendant abused a position of trust.

It’s unclear if there was one or more victims. One victim, who is now 18, claimed Polubinski started molesting and raping him when he was 8 or 9 years old, according to an earlier story in the Whidbey News-Times. Polubinski allegedly told the victim not to report the

abuse because it would “tear the family apart,” according to the News-Times story. Polubinski is currently in the Island County jail, where he will remain until he is sentenced. He is scheduled to be sentenced at 9:30 a.m. Thursday, Aug. 23, in Island County Superior Court. He

faces a sentence of a minimum of 14 and a half year to a maximum of life in prison.

Polnell Road too speedy for Mariners Cove residents matter of time before a serious accident occurs. Hansen said a resident recently timed how long it takes southbound cars ripping around the corner at 50 mph to reach the intersection at Mariner Beach Drive and the results make clear the danger. “It takes less than four seconds,” said Hansen, adding that it takes about the same amount of time for northbound drivers to reach Fireweed Drive. In order to change a speed limit, stringent engineering standards must be met, and if it’s a public request, a petition has to be drafted. Mariners Cove residents met the challenge, submitting a document with more than 100 signatures. Public Works engineers reviewed the request and performed a study. Unfortunately, it didn’t meet the guideline, though signs that warn drivers of the upcoming intersections were posted. Hansen said the signs were greatly appreciated but that it just isn’t enough. The group submitted yet another petition, this one with 112 signatures. They also alerted their district representative, Island County Commissioner Angie Homola. “She came out here on a Sunday and spent over an

By JUSTIN BURNETT Staff reporter

Sometimes it pays to be persistent. For more than a year and a half, a group of Mariner’s Cove residents has been working to lower the 50 mph hour speed limit on a halfmile section of Polnell Road and their efforts recently paid off with a small but welcome victory. Despite the results of a traffic study that indicated a speed reduction was not warranted, a study prompted by a petition the group submitted last year, Island County officials have decided to take another look after receiving a second petition from the same group earlier this month. Gary Hansen, a Mariners Cove resident, said he doesn’t begrudge the long process to lower speed limits and is grateful the county is willing to review the matter again. The section of highway under discussion intersects with Fireweed and Mariner Beach drives, the two entrances to the small community. The combination of speedy motorists, the curve of the road and view-blocking landscaping make for nerve-racking, if not downright dangerous, intersections and many are nervous that it’s just a

residents at a work session in Coupeville last week. She said it can be challenging to weigh professional engineering requirements with a community need but that in this case she believes the public’s request needs additional deliberation and thought. “We can’t only consider the engineering aspects of it,” Homola said. “I want to address the neighbor’s concerns and do something. It’s not working for them.” Bill Oakes, director of Island County Public Works, said that simply lowering the speed limit won’t necessarily change driver’s behavior but that he agrees there is a problem with sight distance. Like Homola, he personally took the time to drive out there and look at the troublesome intersections. “Lowering the speed limit won’t change people’s behavior,” he said. “They are going to drive the road how they feel is safe.” One fix, he said, would be to cut back landscaping at the corners, but that’s on private property and out of the

county’s jurisdiction. Homola asked about speed limit signs with flashing lights, such as the one by her own house, saying they have been very effective. Oakes said that would add cost but that it could be considered. His suggestion was to post yellow “advisory” signs that recommend a lower speed. The official limit would remain the same and drivers could not be posted for speeding, but they could be cited for going too fast for conditions, he said. However, advisory signs also need to meet certain sight distance engineering guidelines in order to be justified. That testing began this week but the results have not yet been released. The board agreed to wait to see the results before taking additional action. Hansen said the process to fix the dangerous situation has been long but that overall he’s been pleased with the county’s effort to work with the community and solve the issue. “Everybody so far has been pretty positive,” he said.

Port director gets 18 months more By NATHAN WHALEN Staff reporter

After spending what will be nine years as executive director, Jim Patton will soon call it a day. The commissioners for the Port of Coupeville recently approved a contract that keeps Patton employed

until the end of 2013. After that, he is planning to retire and spend more time with family. “I have five kids and 10 grandkids,” Patton said. Patton has been the executive director of the Port of Coupeville, which operates the Coupeville Wharf and

the Greenbank Farm, since 2004. The 18-month window gives time for several important projects to be completed before Patton retires. The next year-and-a-half will be a busy time for the Port of Coupeville. Officials are currently negotiating a con-

servation easement to add an additional layer of protection to the agriculture, recreational and environmentally sensitive land at the farm. In addition, work is beginning on a transition plan to decide how the Greenbank Farm will be operated once the management group’s contract expires at the end of 2013. A committee recently formed to explore possibili-

ties. Patton also noted that the port will begin its three-year review of its comprehensive plan and he will be working through two budget cycles and a regularly scheduled state audit. He also hoped he would be able to find a way to fix a problematic structure at the end of the Coupeville Wharf. “If I’m lucky, I’ll find a

way to replace those concrete fuel piers,” Patton said. Those two fuel piers have been a headache for Patton. During severe winter weather, the piers have broken away from the wharf, posing an environmental danger. During the summer of 2013, he anticipates the commissioners will appoint a search committee to look for a replacement.

District 1 candidates face off in Clinton forum By JIM LARSEN News-Times editor

Jeff Lauderdale put a little distance between himself, the tea party and even the Republican party in front of more than 100 citizens at the Clinton Progressive Hall Wednesday night. Probably the favorite of the Island County Republican Party to unseat incumbent Democrat Helen Price Johnson for the District 1 commissioner position, Lauderdale opened his remarks by saying, in effect, he’s his own man. “I’m not an automaton for the Republican Party and I make my own decisions,” Lauderdale said. Democrats have tried to typecast him as a tea party type, but the mustachioed former Navy commander boasted of his leadership and background. “I headed the Trident building program of $23 billion,” he said of the Trident submarines, some of which carry nuclear missiles and are based at Bangor. A mechanical engineer whose wife has roots on Whidbey Island dating back to 1968, Lauderdale suggested the county is making some decisions on insufficient evidence. He called for “a scientific explanation for our dollars, so we don’t solve problems that simply don’t exist.” As a case in point, he picked on the county’s mandatory sewer system inspection programs. Generally, all gravity septic systems have to be inspected every three years,

and alternative systems, often located along the shoreline, must be inspected every year. He said those alternative systems are reliable. “It makes no sense to me,” Lauderdale said. Later, referring to state lawmakers, he said, “I’d stand on their desks until they change the timing.” Lauderdale also criticized the expensive sewer system once proposed for Freeland to protect Holmes Harbor that was closed to shellfish harvesting and swimming. The state is now considering reopening the waters, even without the sewer plant. He wasn’t all negative, however, crediting Price Johnson for balancing the budget in difficult times. Lauderdale has been attending commissioner meetings regularly since he announced he would run early last year, first gaining public attention as an opponent of the way the state-mandated septic system inspection program was implemented. Price Johnson stood her ground, saying when she was elected in 2008 as the county’s first woman commissioner she “navigated some very rough waters” economically. She told her personal story of growing up on the island and running the old Jones Department Store in Langley, and then starting a construction business with her husband, raising kids and serving on the school board. “Our quality of life was threatened,” she said, explaining what prompted her to

seek the office. She made no apologies for mandatory septic inspections or the Clean Water Utility fee levied on land parcels. “The future of our islands is at stake in this election,” she told the mild, polite crowd of mostly older people. “We’re fragile environmentally and economically. I love this community and want it here for my children and grandchildren.” She also took the opportunity to refute charges she supported a $40 million sewer system for Freeland. A trip to Washington, D.C., she said, was simply to look for more federal dollars for whatever system may be chosen. Another Republican, Wayne Morrison, runs a construction business on South Whidbey and emphasized making it easier for companies to operate here, and keeping more business local. As an example of his frustration with regu-

lations, he said local gravel companies sometimes can’t bid on county gravel contracts because of how the state defines gravel. He also called for fewer regulations to promote more housing for low income people. “Lots of people going to the food bank for food also need low cost housing,” he said. “It’ll enable their existence, or they’ll move away and go to schools somewhere else.” Retaining students has been a problem

for South Whidbey schools. Basically, economic growth was his platform and he pointed out he was just elected to another term as chairman of the Island County Economic Development Council board, which he said offers free help in starting and operating small businesses. By the time independent Curt Gordon got to speak, he admitted he might sound “like an echo.” Like the others, he opposes higher taxes and fees and is in favor of attracting more tourists and businesses. “The public is not in favor of property tax increases,” he said. “We need an infrastructure that brings people here and keeps them coming back.” Gordon has a long history of public service. As the present Port District president, he said progress is finally being made on improving the Langley Marina with a project costing roughly $2.4 million on track to begin soon. He’s pushing the city of Mukilteo to provide more parking for Whidbey Island commuters

and visitors, and took credit for helping create several public spaces, including Double Bluff, when he served on the Conservation Futures Advisory Board. “I’m not a party candidate,” Gordon told the crowd, adding he could bring balance to a divided board of commissioners. The other independent at the front table was Ed Jenkins, who said he enjoyed success as a businessman in California. As such, he doesn’t need a county paycheck. He said part of his paycheck would be spent for “advertorials” in local papers to explain county issues to the people, while the bulk of it would be spent on off-island advertising to attract more visitors. “You’re not voting for a BFF (Best Friend Forever),” Jenkins said.

IN OUR OPINION

Race Week’s great, but little known Race Week in Oak Harbor just finished its 30th consecutive successful run. Many of the sailors are still at the Oak Harbor marina, enjoying a final weekend in our friendly town while making preparations for a long, enjoyable sail home. The winners have received their accolades and the losers are scheming in their heads how to do better next year, mainly centering on thoughts of buying a better boat, no doubt. It was a great week for participants, as is always assured by the organizers. The latest owner, Gary Stuntz, attracted more than 100 boats to town with crews and family members exceeding the 1,000 mark. It provided a huge boost for Oak Harbor’s restaurants and retail stores and, at least for a week, made the city’s declining sales tax revenues perk up. But it seems like more could be made of Race Week if the owner had more help from the community, particularly in term of publicity and ceremony. Presently, events and activities are centered at the Yacht Club, which is a bit off the beaten track, and most events are open only to participants. For years the Navy threw a party for the entire community during Race Week, but that tradition has been suspended, at least temporarily. Oak Harbor could have a lot more fun with Race Week with an official welcoming of the fleet, and perhaps a blessing from a mix of those from Dutch Reformed, Native American, Roman Catholic, Lutheran, Mormon, Nazarene and other religious traditions (sorry to those we left out). Awards could be presented in a ceremony downtown; close Pioneer Way for a short time and allow the merchants to cater to the milling throng. The mayor could present an appropriate symbol, perhaps a golden keel, to the boat judged most competitive, and other awards given to select crews judged outstanding for their competitiveness, attire or ability to work together as one. The website operated by the city links to the Race Week site but doesn’t directly tell the visitor of the allure of Whidbey Island and all they things there are to do while enjoying Race Week. Nor does it tell how to enjoy Race Week, which viewing points are best, and since there are no public events, there can be no mention of such. The Greater Oak Harbor Chamber of Commerce website has Race Week on its calendar, but precious little more unless we missed the correct place to click. Race Week is an established event, a great event, one that far more people could enjoy if we worked together a little bit more. The time to start helping the owner plan for next year is now.

Letters to the editor Criticism of Price Johnson unfair Having recently seen a second letter to the editor regarding Helen Price Johnson’s alleged support of a “$40 million sewer plan,” I feel compelled to set the record straight. I was on the board of commissioners of the Freeland Water and Sewer District during the contentious period when a $40 million sewer system was being discussed, and I am still a commissioner today. Consequently, I feel I am in a position to comment on Helen Price Johnson’s support for that expensive, but dismissed, sewer plan. Over the last two years, Helen and I had a number of conversations about Growth Management Act requirements and the current local

and county comprehensive plans. But contrary to the recent letters to the editor, Helen did not endorse the plan then on the drawing board. Rather, Helen repeatedly expressed to me her interest in letting the people of Freeland select a system that works for them. Based on those conversations, I believe the letters criticizing Helen for her support for a $40 million sewer system are unfair and untrue. Furthermore, Helen’s trip to Washington, D.C., was taken at the district’s request. The purpose of the trip was not to promote a specific plan, but to try to build political support for additional public funding of a sewer project regardless of the design eventually chosen. The objective was to reduce the burden on local

Lauderdale offers adult leadership Hey, what can I say -- I like Jeff Lauderdale! When Freeland was in the throes of chaos over the dreaded $40 million sewer fisaco, Jeff attended the FAIRS (Freeland Advocates for Informed Responsible Solutions) meetings and contributed his engineering expertise (and, yes, he’s got the academic credentials and 30-plus years of experience to back it up). Jeff has integrity. He lives it every day. He’s served his country as a Navy officer in nuclear submarines. He has

responsibly handled billion dollar budgets. This is part of the public record, not just political smoke and verbal spin. He knows issues from the ground up. He built his own home, doing much of the labor himself. Jeff has class. In the face of the nastiest smear campaign I’ve ever seen, he has emerged calm, focused on the issues. He carries this calm with him everywhere. Jeff is professional. His manner is never to demean others. If he is elected commissioner, I have absolutely no doubt that we will have calm, adult leadership at the district meetings. This currently is not happening. I am an independent. I vote my conscience. Chelle Brunke Freeland

James Huden listens to his defense attorney, Matt Montoya, during the seventh day of his trial in Island County Superior Court. Huden is accused of killing Russel Douglas in Freeland during Christmastime 2003.

Island County Prosecutor Greg Banks holds a Bersa 380 semiautomatic handgun, which is the alleged murder weapon used in the killing of Russel Douglas in December 2003. Banks accused James Huden of buying the gun with the intent to shoot and kill Douglas.

Jury begins deliberating Huden’s fate BY BEN WATANABE Staff reporter

Now comes the wait. Through eight days of jury selection, arguments, cross examinations, rebuttals and closing statements, the fate of James Huden is in the hands of 12 Island County citizens. Closing arguments in the trial of Huden, who Island County prosecutor Greg Banks alleges killed Russel Douglas in December 2003, finished Friday afternoon. The jury was read its instructions and sent to the jury room in Island County Superior Court by 1 p.m. Friday. Banks recalled his opening argument in which he declared the murder to be an assassination, and described the events. “The evidence is in, and most assuredly, the evidence has shown what I said to be true,” Banks told the jury. “Mr. Huden did assassinate Russel Douglas the day after Christmas (2003) in a remote location on Whidbey Island.” “This case is also about heroes. I submit to you that Bill Hill is a hero ... he had to choose between loyalty to his best and closest friend and what his conscience told him.” Banks also called Keith Ogden, a former friend of Huden’s who turned in the alleged murder weapon (a Bersa 380 semiautomatic handgun), a hero. Ogden testified to teaching Huden how to operate and clean the pistol, as well as silence it with a pillow or plastic soda bottle. Neither Ogden nor Hill were familiar with Whidbey Island or the crime, and were motivated to testify against Huden because of their con-

sciences. “There was something up here that he had to make right,” Banks said of Hill. Matt Montoya, Huden’s defense attorney, asked the jurors to think critically about the testimonies and evidence. He questioned a lack of evidence regarding cell phone records placed by Huden or the alleged accomplice, Peggy Thomas, around the time of the murder. Montoya also pondered the timing and location, as well as the assertion that Huden was abused as a child which was also rebuffed by Montoya. “No one - no one - can put Mr. Huden on Whidbey Island on Dec. 26, 2003,” Montoya said. “You haven’t heard any evidence that supports he was abused.” Huden’s whereabouts rested upon the testimony of Ron Young, Huden’s lifelong friend. Young lives in Tukwila and testified that he saw Huden and Thomas around noon or 1 p.m. Dec. 26, 2003. Banks in his rebuttal said that Young was recalling events that took place eight years ago and that Young himself said he couldn’t recall the exact days he saw Huden prior to Christmas that year, other than that they had visited, all of which Banks called “a happy coincidence.” The closing arguments followed a day full of law enforcement and forensics experts for the prosecution on Tuesday and a day of a forensic expert and Young for the defense Thursday. Through a fuzzy recording and garbled speakers, those in the courtroom could see Huden as he sat in an interview room almost eight years ago. In that taped interview

from Aug. 2004, jurors on Tuesday, July 17 watched Huden. Det. Mark Plumberg and Sgt. Mike Beech, both of the Island County Sheriff’s Office, asked dozens of questions. The interview lasted almost an hour, with Plumberg and Beech repeating questions about where he was during the Christmastime 2003 murder of Russel Douglas, who prosecutors allege was murdered by Huden and an accomplice, Peggy Sue Thomas. Island County detectives and investigators learned that Huden and Thomas were boyfriend and girlfriend, despite Huden being married to a woman in Punta Gorda, Fla. at the time, and that they each said they arranged to give Douglas a present for his estranged wife, Brenna Douglas. The main problem with their alibis was they each said they delivered the gift alone. Huden admitted to the officers that he had met Russel Douglas only in passing, which struck Plumberg as odd, given Huden had just told him he took the gift to Douglas. “Had you ever met Russel? Did he even know about you?” Plumberg asked Huden in the tape. “That seems a little out of sorts to me.” “She says she went alone, you say you went alone.” That was the last time law enforcement saw Huden for almost seven years. He fled a couple of weeks later to Veracruz, Mexico on the Gulf of Mexico, where he became known as music teacher Maestro Jim until U.S. Marshals arrested and extradited Huden on June 10, 2011, back to the United States.

As the tape played for the court, Huden mostly looked down at his notepad. When the recording depicted him talking about Thomas and her boyfriend at the time, who Plumberg and Beech explained was better liked by Thomas’ two daughters, Huden lifted his head and turned left to see the screen. Prosecutor Greg Banks alleged that Huden and Thomas lured Douglas to a secluded driveway on Dec. 26, 2003. He arrived to get a present for his wife, but instead got a bullet between the eyes. Huden knew Whidbey Island well enough — he grew up on the South End and even played football for the Langley High School Falcons with his childhood friend Rick Deposit, who testified earlier in the trial for the prosecution. Young, also Huden’s lifelong friend, took the stand for the defense, however briefly. Montoya asked Young how they began a 50-year-friendship and if he saw Huden on Dec. 26, 2003. Young testified he saw Huden and Thomas between noon and 1 p.m. that day, which is when Island County law enforcement believes Douglas was shot and killed. The location and time were the defense’s main argument. Montoya used an expert witness, Jon Nordby, a forensic researcher who studies blood spatter and stains. Nordby has worked for more than 10 years in blood spatter research after a teaching career in philosophy and logic at Pacific Lutheran University. “If I see a stain, I want to know how many different ways I can produce that stain,” Nordby said. As part of his work,

Juror excused A juror in the trial of James Huden, the alleged gunman who killed Russel Douglas in Dec. 2003, was dismissed Monday. The juror was excused from duty after inadvertent contact with a witness. The man was replaced with one of two alternates, both men, leaving 13 Island County residents on the jury: eight men and five women. The incident led Island County Superior Court Judge Vickie Churchill to question each juror individually about any discussion about the case they possibly engaged in with anyone else. Churchill asked the jurors if they had contact with any witnesses, either the defense attorney Matt Montoya or Island County Prosecuting Attorney Greg Banks, any members of the court staff besides the bailiff, any members of Douglas’ family who attended every day of the trial or any other members of the gallery.

Nordby’s lab reviewed photographs of the crime scene and Douglas’ autopsy taken by Dr. Robert Bishop, the county corner. And though Nordby initially requested to review the clothing and suspected murder weapon, a Bersa 380 semiautomatic handgun, and the Island County Sheriff’s Office offered it to him both during a visit to the sub-station and by mail, Nordby ultimately declined. One reason he did not need to see the clothing was because “the stains were more visible” in the photographs than they are now, some eight years after the murder. Nordby testified about seeing unusual patterns in the car. Around the driver’s seat, blood appeared only below the window, with none identified by Nordby on the top of the dashboard or windshield, which he argued would happen from back spatter with a close impact. Banks questioned Nordby’s academic credentials. Nordby, despite having a bachelor’s degree, a master’s degree and a doctor-

ate, does not have any in the science fields. He has a bachelor of arts, a master’s of logic and a philosophy doctorate. Banks also explained that Nordby has not worked as a medical examiner, medical pathologist or physician. In a previous case in Arizona that Nordby testified in, the forensic researcher concluded that the victim was shot outside the vehicle based on blood marks. Nordby wrote a 125-page report for the case, though Banks pointed out that 60-plus pages were devoted to photographs and captions, and a different page included an illustrative reference to a scene from the film “Pulp Fiction,” where John Travolta’s character shoots a man in the head, resulting in massive back spatter from the grisly, albeit fictional, impact. The trial went into closing arguments Friday morning with jury deliberations scheduled to begin in the afternoon, after the Record went to press.

Executive Director Laura Blankenship said she had heard the city might be interested in letting the marathon go through the “Whidbey Island grapevine” and the prospect of a new fundraiser piqued her interest. The foundation currently operates the annual Tour de Whidbey, a series of bicycle races that range from 100 to 10 miles in length. It’s the group’s major fundraiser but it was cancelled this year due largely to a hiring freeze at the hospital. Blankenship emphasized that the foundation’s primary focus is to get the Tour de Whidbey up and running for 2013 and that there is no intention of doing away with it for good in place of a marathon. The interest is having a second fundraiser, but at this point she said she has more questions than answers. Blankenship said she’s seen the budget and isn’t sure the event would be much of a money maker. She also noted that it’s highly unlikely the foundation would buy the marathon, but that it might be interested in some kind of partnership where it ran the event for the city but kept the proceeds. Finding the answers to those questions is what the upcoming meeting is all about, she said. “We’re really just curious,” Blankenship said. As a public asset, it’s unlikely the city would be able to legally “gift” the marathon, even to a nonprofit group. Also, the decision is not up to Dudley but the Oak Harbor City Council. Councilwoman Beth Munns said the marathon’s purchase was never meant to be permanent, that the primary reason for buying it was to preserve the race and create a tourism draw for the city. “I’m not against selling it . . . but I would want to make sure the quality and spirit were maintained,” Munns said. Councilwoman Tara Hizon, who confirmed that she will attend the meeting with the foundation later this month, declined to comment on the matter. Dudley said part of any deal to sell or partner with a nonprofit group would be contingent on the condition that the marathon’s finish line remain in Oak Harbor. If sold, it would also likely have to through some type of formal bidding process.

annual budget, supplied from the county’s general fund. It’s been a sticking point for some and continued to be so at the commissioners’ regular work session this past Wednesday. Commissioner Angie Homola, who had expressed earlier concerns that the letter specifically requested a measure that would not help other struggling departments, said San Juan County is pursuing the same special tax this November but it allows a 100 percent supplant. “They actually sat down at the table and had a conversation, like adults,” said Homola, adding that all parties, including the sheriff, agreed how it would work and how the money would be spent. “I would like to see that kind of cooperation,” she said. “I would like us to sit at the table and have a conversation about what’s good for Island County because what’s good for Island County is good for all of us.” Homola also questioned whether the full council was really on board with the proposal as the vast majority of members were not present when the course of action was decided. Also, she said a wide “swath” of the public was not represented and that they too should have a voice. Finally, she questioned whether a sales tax was really the best way to go as the measure, if passed, would bump up the total sales tax even more. The current rate of 8.7 percent would be increased to 9 percent, which would

be trumped only by areas in King County. Commissioner Kelly Emerson agreed, saying that the county already has one of the highest sales tax rates in the state. She remains against the proposal, saying that she believes the board could do a better job finding money within the current budget — she offered no suggestions as to where — and that hiking the existing sales tax rate would be “devastating to local businesses.” She also contested that the board she be more worried about a struggling public than preserving levels of government, citing record foreclosures. “You think we’re bleeding as a county, how do think the people out there that are trying to exist are doing?” Emerson said. “You can’t just keep going to them and squeezing blood out of a turnip,” she said. Price Johnson emphasized that she has no doubt over the present need, that she agrees with the council. But, she expressed concerns about timing and focus of any measure before the people. She said she learned from Proposition 1, a proposed county property tax that failed in 2010, that people want to know exactly where the money will go and what will be different in the county. She also said she would want a sunset built into any proposal so the issue could be revisited at a later time. “Before I could even consider putting it on the ballot I would need to be able to answer those concerns,” Price Johnson said. She said she didn’t know how the other cities, which would be beneficiaries of the special sales tax, felt

about the matter. While there was some discussion about the positions of some other elected officials at the meeting, Coupeville Mayor Nancy Conard attended the board’s Monday meeting and addressed the issue directly during the public comment period. She said she has met with a handful of public officials, including Langley Mayor Larry Kwarsick and Oak Harbor Mayor Scott Dudley, and that she personally supports the idea but is concerned that it would be premature to place anything on a ballot this year. She suggested a “coalition of support” for the measure be developed first. If it were to move forward this year, the board would have to decide and take action by mid August, which leaves little time to get a campaign together. However, other municipal officials feel otherwise. Later that same evening, the Langley City Council voted unanimously to recommend the board move ahead now, putting the issue on the November ballot as it should see a large turn due to this being a presidential election year. It would generate about $40,000, which would help the small city add a sorely needed officer to its ranks. Brown was at the board’s work session this past Wednesday and argued passionately on behalf of the proposal, one that does zero supplanting. He emphasized that organizing a convincing campaign was the board’s job, not his, and claimed the board is not making public safety a priority. While commissioners have consistently opposed that, saying that 57 percent of the budget is spent on

cops and courts, Brown said such arguments don’t wash. It makes up the bulk of all county budgets simply because it’s they are some of the most expensive departments to fund. He also addressed criticism he’s heard around the county and made it clear that he won’t apologize for advocating for additional funding. “I heard the other day that it’s the swine whine,” Brown said. “Don’t say I’m not a team player because I’m advocating for my department, that’s not fair,” he said. He said the issue is public and officer safety. “That’s my message to you,” Brown said. “However you take this, however you want to continually talk about it, do it. But, realize there is a bit of urgency and I think, my opinion, that is your top priority in county government.” Banks was not at the meetings this past week but in an interview Tuesday morning, he said he was very frustrated by the board’s lack of action. He said he understands concerns about timing and the importance of establishing a strong campaign to inform voters, but said these issues could have been addressed months ago. The need has been clear for a long time, he said. Also, as the Langley City Council demonstrated, a failed effort is by no means a forgone conclusion. If the board agrees that there is a need, then they should step aside and let the public make a decision. “If the need is there, it seems like they should ask voters and get on with it,” Banks said.

Ragnar Relay winds down Whidbey By JIM WALLER Sports editor

As we were sleeping last night, a group of dedicated, if not slightly deranged, individuals raced through the streets of Oak Harbor wearing headlamps, taillights and, in some cases, wacky costumes. Thus is the adventure of the Northwest Passage, an event in the Ragnar Relay series. Each Ragnar race -there are 15 throughout the year in the United States -covers two days, one night and about 200 miles. The Northwest Passage began with a staggered start at 5 a.m. yesterday in Blaine, and teams will finish, after wandering down Whidbey Island, between 10 a.m. and 9 p.m. today. Each relay team consists of 12 persons, or six for the masochistic. Out of the over 350 teams, 20 feature runners from Oak Harbor and Coupeville. One six-person team, the

Ultra Edukators, is manned by Oak Harbor High School staff members Mike Crebbin, Jeremy Day, Frank Jacques, Eric Peterson, Jay Turner and Andy Wesley. And the personal qualities of the teachers seem to fit those needed to take on the Ragnar. They have a challenging, yet rewarding job (much like the race). The race gives them a chance to practice what they preach (personal improvement, testing limits, overcoming obstacles). And, finally, they are a bit quirky. (Who else would purposely lock themselves up in a room full of teenagers all day?) Wesley and Turner twisted a few arms to get the others involved. Wesley said, “We didn’t have 12 friends who are crazy enough to sign up...but we could find six.” The pair challenged Crebbin, whose racing resume is one 15K 27 years ago, to take part and he accepted: “I’m always pushing my students and athletes

Babe Ruth team drops opener

Maybe the delay of some players at the ferry was an omen. Running late, the Oak Harbor Babe Ruth baseball team lost 14-2 in five innings to North Kitsap in the opening round of the North Washington State Tournament in Port Angeles Thursday. Oak Harbor played Olympic yesterday (results were not available at press time) and meets Ellensburg at 9 a.m. today to complete pool play. Olympic defeated Ellensburg 21-13 in eight innings Thursday. The top two teams from the two pools advance to the championship round Sunday. North Kitsap jumped to a 3-0 lead on two hit batters and three hits in the first inning and never let up, mixing 11 hits with six Oak Harbor errors to cruise to the win. Oak Harbor scored both its runs in the fifth inning. Noah Zuniga led with a single, stole second and moved to third on Christian Bertram’s bunt. Kevyn Johnson walked, then back-to-back singles by Robert Herring and Tyler Snavely scored the two runs. Although his club lost, coach Bill Young said Oak Harbor “showed occasional brilliance on the field” with nice defensive plays by Preston Rankin, Bertram and Ryan Valencia. Zuniga was 2-for-2, and Herring, Snavely and Rankin collected singles. Snavely took the pitching loss.

to step up to the challenges and this definitely will challenge me.” Jacques is the only one to have competed in a Ragnar race, running with a 12-man team last year. This time around he will race in the ultra (six-man) division. He said, “I did look at a couple of six-person teams last year with perverse envy of the endurance athlete.” Adding sarcastically, “Luck-outs -- they get to run twice as much!” Peterson said the race fits well in his triathlon training, and added, “Who wouldn’t want to run 35-plus miles in 24 hours?” Turner saw the training as a way to stay in shape over the spring and summer and, as a result, has dropped 30 pounds along the way. He said, “I am currently running 40 to 50 miles a week, which, for a 40-year-old, 250-pound ex-football lineman, is a lot.” He said they originally thought a 12-man team would be “too easy,” so they opted

for the six-man version: “I’m beginning to think that might have been a really dumb decision.” Four of the six are coaches, and along with that comes a completive fire. Peterson said he hopes the team finishes in the top part of its division. Crebbin was more specific: he wants to win. Some of their teammates just hope to survive. Wesley said, “I am looking forward to the experience but dreading the day after the race.” Day said, “My goal is to finish without walking at any point, but in reality, so long as I finish, I’ll feel good about it. “If you end up writing an article about the race, hopefully I’ll still be alive to read it.” Jim Waller/Whidbey News-Times

God will help you just go for it FAITHFUL LIVING By Joan Bay Klope

I’m not a devotee of spiritualist Marianne Williamson, but I agree with her when she says that “our deepest fear is not that we are inadequate. Our deepest fear is that we are powerful beyond measure.” Within days, we will watch Olympic athletes from nations around the world clear hurdles, swim into record books and stick landings. They chose tenacity over fear. Dared to envision themselves in successful activities. Embraced the reality that there is pain with gain. How many of us choose comfort and mediocrity, over-plan or vegetate because we can’t seem to take the next scary step? Bestselling Christian author Max Lucado suggests that people actively engage in five activities when contemplating exciting future challenges as well as enormous hurdles. First, recall the times when God was there to provide you with the energy, courage, hope and passion you needed. Write down a situation when it was apparent God was working in practical ways to help in an activity in which you were involved. If you are unable to readily invoke a memory of your own, turn in your Bible to the stories where God was actively engaged in people’s lives. Then read God’s promise in First Chronicles 16: “Remember His marvelous works which He has done. God’s attentiveness to your life remains steadfast.” Second, dedicate time to pray. Not only will it require that you quiet your racing thoughts, but you will experience peace, mental clarity and a renewed connection with God. You’ll begin to sift through ideas that are worthy of your attention and step away from those that are not. Third, ask God to help you discover ways to bring honor and glory to Himself. To this day I’m fortified by the experience we had with my dad in 2006 when we learned his sudden illness was advanced pancreatic cancer and he had little time to live. Fourteen short days following the devastating news he died and when the attending physician came into the room shortly after his passing, he asked me how I was able to react with such peace when there had been so little time to process the news. I told him I had sensed God’s presence throughout those final days and I would have fallen apart without faith that I’d be with Dad again someday. Filled with intense emotion, it was hard to speak, but I understood it was my moment to represent the truth as I had experienced it. Fourth, move forward. Get on with your plan. You have probably pondered it long enough, itemized the challenges. Turn now to your passion and step forward. Fifth, don’t stop once you get moving. Be persistent and seek inspiration from this sweet poem, penned by one of America’s greatest poets and university educators, Henry Wadsworth Longfellow: “The heights by great men reached and kept; Were not obtained by sudden flight; But they, while their companions slept; Were toiling upward in the night.” God remains on duty. Partner with Him and be part of the adventure.

Making a difference... one box of paper at a time By REBECCA OLSON Staff reporter

While many Oak Harbor teenagers are enjoying the summer sun or heading off on vacations, four girls are on a paper chase. When Elise Still, 15, and her mom, Christine Still, heard that Oak Harbor teachers were suffering from a shortage of supplies and that budget reductions won’t allow them to purchase additional supplies next school year, they knew they couldn’t sit back and do nothing. They decided to ask local businesses for donations of printer paper. “It just seemed like the thing to do, the right thing to do,” Elise Still said. “If the schools need paper, then let’s go get paper.” Before summer vacation began, Christine Still held a supply drive among the ParentTeacher Association members and collected a few large boxes of supplies. “So we just wanted to continue on through the summer what she started. It’s just a oneof-a-kind experience,” Elise Still said. Elise Still enlisted a few friends to join her as she traveled from business to business around Oak Harbor asking for donations of printer paper. “A lot of people were really surprised: ‘The high school needs paper?’ But paper is just really the thing that we need. We use it everyday,” Elise Still said. Fionna Strong, 14, Ella Brooks, 15, and Becca Tieger, 14, teamed up with Elise Still to gather 14 boxes of paper, plus a $50 donation and some additional reams of paper. Each box is worth $35 to $50 and holds about 5,000 sheets of paper. “It really means a lot. Last year, it was kind of hard at the end of the school year because teachers were getting frustrated with how much they could print,” Elise Still said, adding that one teacher had to write out a long list of questions for the class because printing was so limited. “Doing this certainly will help.” The work hasn’t been easy. On their first day, the girls encountered a couple of rude people.

Rebecca Olson / Whidbey News-Times

Ella Brooks, Elise Still, Fionna Strong and Becca Tieger are gathering donations of printer paper for Oak Harbor High School. “We were not wanting to go out again but there was a lot of people who were nice,” Elise Still said, adding that right after dealing with the not-sonice people, Van Cleve Optical donated $50 to their cause. “There’s always going to be people out there who don’t want to help the high school,” Elise Still said, adding that regardless, more people will be willing to help. “It just takes a little part from everybody and hopefully makes a big impact. That’s what I’m always trying to stress to the girls anyways,” Christine Still said. She drives the girls to businesses --- and to get frozen yogurt afterward, a sweet motivator to return to their work each day. “And hopefully the girls will see that even with a little bit of time, it’ll impact schools next year. They can say they had a part in it,” Christine Still said. Elise Still and her parents are taking an extra step to help the high school. Tomorrow, they will participate in the challenging Benaroya Research Institute Seafair Triathlon near Lake Washington. Elise Still has participated in this triathlon twice before, but this is the first year she’s going for the Olympic distances. That means a one-mile swim, 22-mile bike ride and 10K run. “I’m kind of scared but I’m excited at the same time,” Elise Still said. Last year, it took her

dad, Ronald Still, about three hours to complete the course. While swimming may not be Elise Still’s favorite part of the race, she’s well prepared for the biking part as the youth winner of the Most Miles in May contest held by the city of Oak Harbor. Elise Still zoomed into first place after logging 219 miles on her bike. The Stills have been training as a family and become more anxious each day before the race. “Between all three of us, we’re like ‘let’s just get ’er done!’” Christine Still laughed. Making flowers to set her bike apart so it will be easier to find during the race will be a high point for Elise Still, but even moreso will be the food afterward. “The longer the thing, the more food,” Elise Still said. The chocolate milk had better watch out because she already has her eye on it. Sponsors across the community have donated paper to encourage Elise Still in her efforts at the triathlon. “It’s really important to help out the schools because the kids who graduate from your schools are going to be part of your community; they already are,” Elise Still said. “It’s really important they get a good education because that makes for a better community.” Elise Still stressed how meaningful it is to have people

in the community say that they care. “Students are going to care back,” Elise Still said. “I think people are really going to be supportive.” Donators include (one box of paper, unless otherwise specified): Bay Printing (two boxes), Guild Mortgage (two boxes), Van Cleve Optical ($50), Whidbey Island Bicycle Club, Sid Strothers DDS/PC Family Practice, Bicycles Northwest, Christ the King of Oak Harbor, Hearing Health Services, Key Bank Oak Harbor, Shannan Frisbie, Christine Cribb (Oak Harbor School Board member) and Matt Plush. Donations of school supplies are welcome between 10 a.m. and 2 p.m. at the Oak Harbor School District office, located at 350 S. Oak Harbor St. For details, call 279-5000. If you leave your name and phone number with the donation, you’ll be entered to win a $50 gift card to Seabolt’s. Supplies needed include: midgrade printer paper, dry erase pens (Chisel Point, Expo or Tul brand), graph paper (small grid sized), red pens, colored pencils and highlighters. Checks may also be made out to the Oak Harbor High School PTA. Please note on the check what the donation should be used for. Checks can be mailed to the high school at #1 Wildcat Way, Oak Harbor, WA 98277.
