Helen Price Johnson, the incumbent Island County District 1 commissioner candidate, speaks during a League of Women Voters of Whidbey Island forum in Freeland last week. Fellow candidates from the left include Curt Gordon, Ed Jenkins, Jeff Lauderdale and Wayne Morrison. By JUSTIN BURNETT Staff reporter

Island County District 1 commissioner hopefuls squared off Thursday at one of the last political forums before the August primary election. Candidates sparred over a range of topics for about an hour and a half before a crowd of more than 115 people at the Unitarian Universalist Congregation church just north of Freeland. It was the second of two commissioner forums held by the League of Women Voters of Whidbey Island for the primary election. Ballots went out Thursday afternoon and Election Day is August 7. Washington uses a top-two primary system in which the two candidates with the most votes, regardless of party, proceed to the general election in November.

District 1 participants included lone Democrat and incumbent Helen Price Johnson, Republican challengers Jeff Lauderdale and Wayne Morrison and independents Curt Gordon and Ed Jenkins. All but Lauderdale, a Coupeville resident, hail from Clinton. Although the gathering lacked some of the fireworks present at the District 2 forum in Oak Harbor earlier this month, the new format that utilized predetermined questions rather than opening it up to the crowd resulted in healthy debate and discussion on a wide range of issues.

Jobs, jobs, jobs Perhaps one of the most interesting, if not entertaining, questions of the evening focused on job creation in Island County.

Answering first was Lauderdale, a retired U.S. Navy commander. The former officer said government walks a fine line between the right to regulate and the need to regulate. A business-friendly regulatory environment should be established and it should not restrict growth, he said. When an “entrepreneur comes to Island County with an idea, with money, with energy, they need to get the regulation out of the way.” “You cannot protect Island County from every imaginable problem,” Lauderdale said. Price Johnson, who is seeking re-election to a second term as commissioner, talked about her recent efforts to promote economic growth through the expansion of broadband internet service and by fostering partnerships among high school students,

community colleges and local businesses. Efforts to expand broadband coverage, which may boost e-trade, were based on a planned study that was to be funded by a state grant. It was not awarded but it’s likely the grant money will be applied for again next year. Price Johnson also talked about the need to support local businesses by shopping locally, saying the community needs to do a better job at doing so. “That would have the biggest impact on our economy,” she said. Jenkins, a retired businessman, said the issue is about “job, jobs, jobs, not broadband.” It’s a small component and important, he said, but this is more about changing dynamics and branding Whidbey Island for what it is.

COUPEVILLE — All the waiting is over for the family of Russel Douglas. James Edward Huden was found guilty Monday, July 23 of murdering Douglas in December 2003. An Island County Superior Court jury unanimously agreed Huden was guilty of the murder with “aggravating circumstances” of using a firearm on a “particularly vulnerable victim” Monday morning. Judge Vickie Churchill read the verdict at 11:15 a.m. to a courtroom packed with the Douglas family, absent his two teenage children and widow, Brenna Douglas, along with Dateline NBC and court staff. The jury ruled that Russel Douglas was vulnerable at the time because he was seated and buckled in his Chevrolet Geo Tracker when he pulled onto a driveway off Wahl Road in Freeland, where Huden shot him in the head. After the verdict was read, the courtroom remained silent save for a few sniffles from the Douglas family, which was present for the duration of the eight-day trial. Huden barely reacted, keeping his head lowered while the verdict was read. The couple of weeks in the courtroom were short compared to the wait the Douglas family experienced over the past eight years. Huden evaded custody in August 2004 when Hurricane Charlie hit Florida, and fled to Veracruz, Mexico where he became known as Maestro Jim, a music teacher. U.S. Marshals brought Huden into custody

A love that tops mountains A pair of hikers proclaimed their love one year ago from the top of Mount Rainier with a handful of South Whidbey friends. Ethan Pendleton climbed Columbia Crest, at about 14,000 feet of elevation, then dropped to one knee to propose to Melissa Moren on Aug. 2, 2011. She said yes and the couple plans to marry Saturday, July 28. The engaged couple are friends with South Whidbey alumni Reuben and Jen Baker, who have climbed Washington’s peaks during the summers with South Whidbey High School science teacher Greg Ballog and transportation and maintenance supervisor Kevin Lungren. All of the South Whidbey climbers were in on the surprise and had several cameras to capture the moment, including this photograph.

Annual Loganberry Festival goes ‘berry’ well By JUSTIN BURNETT Staff reporter

Live music, healthy participation, and plenty of fun events and activities appear to have once again proved to be the right recipe for a successful Loganberry Festival. The annual two-day event is held every year at Greenbank Farm on Central Whidbey and, despite the mixed weather, organizers say the festival this past weekend was a memorable one. “Saturday was just fabulous,” said Mary Jo Stansbury, a member of the Greenbank Farm Management Group’s board. “It was the best energy you can imagine.” While there have been past festivals that saw greater attendance, she said Saturday was still bustling with people who were enjoying the many activities and vendors under a blue sky bright with sunshine. Sunday brought overcast skies and a chilly breeze but it didn’t seem to dampen the mood too much. People were milling about, sampling the food and participating in the range of event festivities. All the annual favorites, such as the ever popular pieeating contests for children and adults, were offered at this year’s festival but the event had a few new treats for the mind as well. Professional storytellers enthralled crowds with tales of Rebecca Ebey, a historic figure in Central Whidbey, and educational presentations or displays, such as Fiber in

A busy animal act schedule proved popular as well, featuring everything from animal agility contests and service dog demonstrations to equestrian displays and hippotherapy, an umbrella term that describes therapy by horse movements.

CORRECTION In the story, “District 1 candidates face off in Clinton,” on Page A1 of the Saturday, July 21 edition of the Record, Jeff Lauderdale supporters say there were two errors. First, Lauderdale’s wife Julie came to Whidbey in 1958 not 1968. Second, Lauderdale managed a $21 billion Navy budget, not $23 billion.

While Greenbank resident Jerry Lloyd’s equestrian demonstrations were a crowd favorite, Stansbury said the “chicken agility” display was unforgettable. “That was one of the funniest things I’ve seen in a long time,” she laughed.

NEWSLINE | WEATHER REPORT: Small chance of rain today and tomorrow; highs of 74, lows in mid-50s. Partly cloudy Friday with high of 70 and low of 56. BAYVIEW Firefighters plan practice fire South Whidbey Fire/EMS will conduct a burning drill in Bayview on Saturday, July 28 to train volunteer firefighters and emergency medical technicians. The burning will be at a private property off Bayview Road, and the fire and smoke will be visible from Highway 525, Useless Bay and Sunlight Beach. Signs will be posted indicating where the training is taking place and all public roads are expected to be fully accessible. The four buildings scheduled for the burn include two barns, one house and a cabin, though not all of the buildings will be ignited at the same time. Fire department volunteers and vehicles will begin arriving at 7 a.m. The training exercise is expected to conclude by late afternoon. “This drill involves all of our district personnel, and provides invaluable experience for our volunteers,” said Deputy Chief Mike Cotton, the department’s training officer. The property is owned by a local family; the father and son both volunteer with the fire department. The training is conducted with approval and permits

from several agencies including Northwest Air Pollution and the Island County Fire Warden. Anyone with questions about the burning drill should contact Fire Chief Rusty Palmer at chief@icfd3. org, 321-1533 or 5535 Cameron Road, Freeland, WA 98249.

LANGLEY Litter bag law bagged Langley motorists and boaters were once required by law to have a litter bag with them at all times but no more. In a housekeeping measure, the City Council voted Monday to repeal a dated section of city code that required anyone with a car or on a boat in Langley to always have a litter bag. According to Police Chief Randy Heston, the ordinance existed because the litter bag rule was once a state law. The Legislature repealed it in July 2003. At the time, it carried at $95 fine but Heston said he’s not aware of anyone in Langley having ever been cited for it. Heston is engaged in an ongoing effort to clean up the city’s code of laws that are now defunct or unconstitutional and recommended it be removed. The council adopted the proposal by unanimous vote.

SCHOOLS District seeks tech manager Moving forward with aggressive technology integration, the South Whidbey School District wants to hire a technology operations manager for $55,000. Based on a 260-day contract, about one school year, the technology manager will be responsible for district-wide support. The employee’s duties will encompass network and infrastructure management, including installation, upgrades, troubleshooting and management of security software and hardware. Funding for the technology manager will come from the district’s technology fund, which has almost $1 million dedicated for expenditures this coming school year for an iPad and iPod program at various grade levels, as well as certification for teachers and the technology manager. Those funds came from a $1.03 per $1,000 of assessed property value levy that was approved by 60.56 percent of voters in Feb. 2010. The position will not supplant the current position of educational technology director, which is held by South Whidbey Academy Director David Pfeiffer. Interviews are anticipated in early August by the district’s human resources office.

Board to vote on 2012-2013 budget A smaller budget is up for the South Whidbey School Board’s approval tonight. The South Whidbey School District cut its $15.2 million budget in 2011-2012 by about $200,000 for the 2012-2013 school year, most of which came from staffing reductions both in fewer positions and reduced hours. The district budgeted $14.8 million in expenses, almost half of which will be spent on regular instruction. Dan Poolman, the district assistant superintendent for business, will present the budget to the board. Also related to Poolman, who became the assistant superintendent after the district divided the duties of the transportation and maintenance supervisor, is the request to purchase three new school buses capable of carrying 77- , 36and 20-passengers. For all three purchases, the district will spend $290,279.17 of its $416,893 transportation vehicle fund. The board is also expected to approve several policies concerning curriculum development, nondiscrimination, reasonable force, student health and sports-related concussions, as well as employment and property safety and operations. There will be a public hearing period on the budget, as well as a general public comment period, prior to any action taken

Letters Election

Vote to retain the incumbents To the editor: I am writing to express my support for our two current county commissioners, Helen Price Johnson and Angie Homola. Though our country is experiencing the worst recession since the Great Depression, and while dozens of other local governments throughout the country are claiming bankruptcy, these two commissioners have guided our county so that we have been able to maintain essential county services with a minimum of new taxes and fees. Opponents of these two commissioners have created a far different picture, claiming they are leading us to the poor house with their “Democratic tax and spend” policies and supposed over-concern for the “natural” environment. Most of this, however, is pure fallacy. The truth is, most opponents are basing their attacks on the simple fact that these commissioners are Democrats, or as one frequent commenter likes to call them, the DemocraticSocialist. It has nothing to do with the real work they have been doing on our behalf. The proof for me, of course, is close to home: over the last few years my property taxes have not seen a substantial increase. In fact, I believe that the taxes I’m paying for our roads, schools, parks, hospital and a broad range of services provided by the county are more than fair. I hope you’ll join me in supporting and voting for commissioners Price Johnson and Homola, so they can continue to do the job we have elected them to do. David Freed Clinton

Only Lauderdale does research To the editor: Don’t be fooled by all those huge Wayne Morrison and Curt Gordon signs that have popped up recently. Wayne and Curt may be nice guys, but they are nowhere near as qualified as Jeff Lauderdale to be your county commissioner. While Jeff Lauderdale has attended county commissioner hearings and workshops twice a week for the past two years, neither Wayne nor Curt have done anything to prepare themselves for the job they are now seeking. Jeff Lauderdale has read and researched the Shoreline Master Plan and the Growth Management Act and has expounded publicly on the ambiguity and dangers it presents to Island County property owners. None of the

other candidates, including the incumbent commissioner have done so. Jeff Lauderdale debunked the faulty science used to promote the On Site Septic Program and presented it to all three county commissioners and the general public two years ago. Again, none of the other candidates, including the incumbent commissioner, bothered to research the issue and alert the public as Jeff did. Jeff Lauderdale is a proven leader, with the integrity, knowledge, and experience to be a phenomenal county commissioner. It matters who you elect into public office. My vote is for Jeff Lauderdale.

for District 1 county commissioner, I can see that many voters will continue to be puzzled about which candidate meets our needs. One candidate says he doesn’t need the county’s money and will use his pay for “advertorials” and promoting businesses. Everything seems to make this man “angry” and he says, with his business experience, he will be a CEO. Another claims to be against septic inspection requirements and will “stand on the desks of state congressmen” to get action. He also said if you want to know how he stands on the issues, just look at the Republican Party positions. One candidate has been involved in a variety of citizens’ groups for years although some of those projects are still waiting for resolution. He is also in favor of limiting access to ferries by requiring reservations. A matter of grave importance was the county’s definition of gravel to one of the candidates. Only one of the candidates has a proven track record, accomplished under difficult circumstances, including a disruptive,

non-participating, know-nothing member of the commission. Perhaps the most important question voters should ask is, “which of these candidates will work as a team member, not a CEO, not to further their own agenda, not getting angry at the drop of a hat, but to perform the duties of their office in a calm, selfless, logical manner?” The winning candidate should work for the citizens of the county, not for certain political groups or special interest groups. Of all the candidates, only Helen Price Johnson has the clear vision, experience, and temperament to serve as a commissioner. She will represent us all, not just a few. Re-elect Helen.

Where some cash may be found To the editor: Regarding the recent article in the South Whidbey Record, “Law and justice levy finds support is waning,” and other articles discussing how the “underfunded” law and justice departments in Island County can obtain additional funding to support their departments, I would suggest that all parties involved look closely at the existing budget, specifically the juvenile detention program and building. I believe the answer could be found there. For years I served on the Law and Justice Committee in my role as County Human

Services Administrator for Island County. During the time I served, the decision was made to build our own Juvenile Detention Center, One decision I believe was ill-conceived, and one which has cost the taxpayers a bundle of money. I believed at the time, and so did the state Law and Justice Committee, that Island County youth could be adequately served in an adjoining county’s detention center, and that Island County could not afford this center in the long run. With apologies to my friends in the law and justice departments, I would suggest that the county commissioners and the staff make available statistics on what it costs to run the juvenile detention center, what the average occupancy is,

and the cost to the taxpayers for every juvenile detained. I believe the numbers will show that we could serve our juveniles who need detaining much less expensively by coming up with creative solutions and sending them to other counties rather than continuing to pay for bricks and mortar and 24/7 staffing. The money saved could then be used to supplement other departments in the law and justice arena. Linda Morris Langley

is a Whidbey Island community club located a few miles down Saratoga Road from Langley. We have enjoyed the monthly potluck dinners and programs, and it has given us the opportunity to meet other South Whidbey families. Even the work parties to maintain the public meeting hall and the fund raisers to raise money for scholarships for students have been fun occasions. On Sunday, July 29, the club is celebrating their 60th anniversary of incorporation. We especially urge previous members, our neighbors, and the good people of South Whidbey, to come and join us for this celebration of 60-plus years of service to our community.

Whether buying or selling a home, your moving date will be an important consideration. Also called the “possession date”, it is one of the items which is negotiated and included in the contract of sale. Possession dates are most often established in relation to the “closing date”, the date on which the purchase money is paid and the title transfers to the purchasers. In a contract, the possession date may read “upon transfer of title and disbursement of funds”, or merely “at closing.” Is possession always given at closing? Not necessarily. Remember, it is negotiable. It can be whatever date is acceptable to both buyers and sellers. The possession date may be “fourteen days after closing” or “seven days prior to closing.” Notice that possession is still relative to the closing date. If possession occurs on any date other than at closing, a short term lease agreement should be prepared. It should include the amount of any rent to be paid, what happens if the sale is not consummated, who is responsible for damage or needed repairs during the lease, etc. All agreements related to possession should be in writing. Any changes made after the contract has been signed should also be reduced to writing and signed by all parties.

as collateral when we needed a line of credit. We employed people who otherwise may have been unemployed. When we worked smart, we made money. When we made bad decisions we lost money. Along the way, we paid corporate federal income tax, federal unemployment tax and double Social Security tax. And then were the Washington state business and occupation tax on our gross revenue (even when we had a negative cash flow), employment security taxes, labor and industry taxes, sales taxes, gas tax and more. I guess those taxes don’t count to the president. It is shameful that the president disparages the life work of millions of Americans like us.

South End group runs Ragnar Relay for injured island man BY BEN WATANABE Staff reporter

Like a swarm of tired, fit and sweaty locusts, thousands descended down Highway 525 from Deception Pass to the Island County Fairgrounds on Sunday for the Northwest Passage Ragnar Relay. The 190-mile Northwest Passage route takes teams from the U.S-Canada border in Blaine south to Langley. In the fifth year as a race in the Ragnar series, a group of grueling relay races across the United States, 81 more teams registered than in 2011. That included the firsttime Ragnar team, the TOHKON Fighting Spirits from Freeland’s Island Athletic Club, which ran in honor of South Whidbey son Colton

Wilson, who was living in Lynnwood at the time of the injury, was recently moved from the Intensive Care Unit at the University of Washington Harborview Medical Center in Seattle, though he remains comatose. TOH-KON was already registered for the race when Wilson’s injury occurred.

Once she learned about Wilson’s injury, the team had another reason to run. “On June 6, we heard the unwelcome news about Colton Wilson,” Rudd said. “We decided all together to run Ragnar for Colton. Ironically, our team name we picked few months ago was perfect. We had green ribbons with Colton’s name on it when we ran.” As a way to help his family with the medical and hospital bills, TOH-KON raised $4,300 from the race. The group finished 21st in the mixed open category and had one of the top 50 times overall in 27:16:08. “That’s awesome,” Rudd said.

Youngsters hit the court for Falcon basketball clinic BY BEN WATANABE Staff reporter

LANGLEY — Elementary- and middle-school-age youths from the South End hit the gym at South Whidbey High School for a weeklong basketball camp. They were led in dribbling, shooting, passing and defensive drills under the tutelage of Falcon girls basketball head coach Andy Davis and Principal John Patton, a former collegiate basketball player. Former and current Falcon hoopsters helped out, too. All the bodies in motion led to a bit of confusion, especially during an offensive set drill. Three players were positioned on the perimeter, with one in a baseline corner and two at the top of the arc. The player nearest the corner player ran toward the basket, where the corner player was supposed to pass for an easy layup. That layup proved to be not so simple, however, as players forgot to run, forgot to pass, forgot to rebound or call out the

Discover the benefits of dark cherries, blue light and green tea Miscellany: “A collection of various items, parts or ingredients.” That exactly describes the contents of one fat file I keep on my desk. It’s titled “Food/Health Info” and because it has grown fatter during the past two or three months, it’s time to make use of it, hopefully for the benefit of all of us. As I’ve noted in past columns, I receive several publications, both in my snail mailbox and my emailbox, having to do with food updates and related health information. A great deal of it is repetitive and widely known, but occasionally there are items that have me thinking, “I wonder if many of our readers know this,” so I save them to pass along at some point. And, as you’ve no doubt guessed, today is that point. First, we’ve often been told that dark cherries are a powerful antioxidant and eating them frequently keeps us heart healthy, but I’d never before read or heard that they might help you sleep better. A study recently published in

WHIDBEY RECIPES

Margaret Walton

the European Journal of Nutrition says that cherry juice significantly increases levels of melatonin, which is a sleep regulating hormone naturally produced in our bodies, but which often decreases as we age. The study suggests drinking two ounces of dark or tart cherry juice concentrate, which is available at health food stores, 30 to 60 minutes before bedtime, for both less wakefulness and longer sleep time. I have used melatonin tablets as a sleep aide for years; replacing them with cherry juice concentrate is interesting and currently being tested. I’ll keep you posted on that, but if you’ve tried this cherry sleep aide, do let me know how or if it worked for you. On the same note, we know getting some of the sun’s rays (if we finally have the chance) is good for us (Vitamin D), but did you know some of the sun’s rays are “bluelight?” Well, what I’ve just learned is that blue light suppresses melatonin, which as I said above, is the hormone that makes you feel sleepy. So, if you’re having trouble staying awake on the job, or have frequent energy slumps and crave a nap, get outside in the sun for short breaks and soak up some bluelight rays. However, be warned, both your computer and TV set also emit those same bluelight rays, so if you’re having trouble falling asleep, avoid both your computer and the

TV right before bedtime. Give your melatonin and/ or cherry juice concentrate a break. I’m sure we’re all aware that green tea has been hyped as the beverage that can cure just about anything, once again because it is a potent antioxidant, and we’ve been told endlessly about the importance of antioxidants. The particular substance in green tea, the name of which would be enough to keep you from drinking it, protects your brain cells from free radicals in air pollution, toxins and even helps counteract a high-fat diet. But, a recent study, done specifically to test the effects of green tea on patients with mild cognitive impairment, found that an amino acid in green tea, L-theanine, significantly reduced anxiety and improved concentration and energy. And, the more you drink, the better. At least two cups a day, and up to 15 cups, is recommended. Sorry, but 15 cups of green tea would significantly increase certain other problems for me; I’ll stick with two or three. We’re running out of space; that’s it in the miscellany department for today, but from time to time, we’ll return to these fascinating tips from the food/health world. Yawn. I think I’d better go outside for some fresh bluelight.

RECIPES I can’t promise that a bowl of cherry soup will be as effective a sleep aid as the cherry juice concentrate, but I suspect that on a warm summer’s night (remember those?), it’ll be a lot more appealing. A cup of this soothing chilled cherry soup a half hour or so before bed might just send you smiling into Dreamland.

CHILLY CHERRY SOUP 2 cups water 1 cup sweet Riesling wine, or Muscat, or your preference sweet wine 2-3 T. fresh lemon juice 1 t. grated lemon zest ¾ cup sugar 4 juniper berries, crushed 4 peppercorns 6 whole cloves 1 cinnamon stick 6 cups pitted dark sweet cherries 1 T. cornstarch Greek yogurt (plain), for garnish (optional) Add the first 9 ingredients to a stockpot and bring to a boil. Add the cherries and bring to a boil again. Reduce heat to med. Mix the cornstarch with 1 T. water; whisk into the hot liquid. Cover the pot with a lid, remove from heat, and allow cherries to steep for at least 30 min. Strain the cherries from the juice, reserving both, and discard the cinnamon stick, cloves, juniper berries

and peppercorns. Set aside 18 of the whole cherries. In batches, puree the remaining cherries in a food processor until smooth. Add the reserved juice and chill. Serve, well chilled, in chilled bowls or cups, garnishing with 2 or 3 whole cherries and a small swirl of yogurt, if desired. Makes 6-8 servings, depending on bowls or cups. Drinking green tea day in and day out, especially several cups, could get very boring, but there are ways to perk it up and keep it interesting, especially when the weather’s right for iced tea. Keep a pitcher of this refreshing green tea mixture in the ’fridge.

SPICED GREEN TEA PICK-ME-UP 1 cinnamon stick, cracked 2 t. allspice berries 1 T. freshly grated orange zest 4 whole cloves 4 t. green tea leaves (more if you like it stronger) 3 cups apple cider (or apple juice, if preferred) Lemon slices and/or mint sprigs, for garnish In a saucepan, combine 5 cups water with the cinnamon, allspice, orange zest and cloves; bring to a boil and simmer the mixture for 10 min. Add the tea, cover the pan and remove from heat. Allow tea to steep for at least 5 min., or until it’s cool.

Strain into a pitcher and add the apple cider. Chill the tea, covered, until ready to serve. Serve over ice cubes with a slice of lemon and/or sprig of mint. Makes 8 cups. Or, perhaps this minty green tea slush; it could make drinking your quota of green tea not only possible but pleasant.

MINTY GREEN TEA SLUSH 2 ½ cups water 6-8 green tea bags (depending on your strength preference) 1 ½ T. chopped fresh mint 2 T. sugar ¾ cup unsweetened orange juice (freshly squeezed, if possible) 1 ½ T. frozen lemonade concentrate, undiluted 3 cups chilled club soda Bring water to a boil; pour over tea bags and mint. Cover and let stand 5 min.; discard tea bags. Strain mixture; discard mint. Add sugar; stir well. Add orange juice and lemonade concentrate and stir well. Pour mixture into an 8-inch square baking pan or dish, cover and freeze 2 hours. Spoon mixture into a pitcher; stir in club soda. Stir gently until mixture becomes slushy, breaking up frozen pieces with a spoon. Serve immediately, with a mint sprig as garnish if desired. Makes 6 cups.

Commissioner CONTINUED FROM A1

“It’s a place where we can have tourism 12 months out of the year,” Jenkins said. There is enough happening on the island that it would be “very simple” to create new jobs and increase sales tax revenue. Promoting Whidbey’s quality of life would be key and having “tech businesses” would create living wage jobs and keep kids in school, Jenkins said. Gordon, a small business owner and a current Port of South Whidbey commissioner, said geographic isolation is a problem and that the board should stay on top of transportation advancements. Improving the connection between the island’s current “state of the art” transit system and the ferry system will go a long way toward making the island more accessible and just may help create jobs. “I’m all about transportation,” he said. Morrison, a small business owner and the president of the Island County Economic Development Council board of directors, talked about the needs of people who are trying to open new businesses. It can be a detailed and complex process, involving the development of business plans, the acquisition of permits and licenses, an examination of profit and losses, etc. Having someone in office with experience and knowledge of those needs would be useful. While Morrison was the last to address the issue, the question of economic development and job creation continued on in the form of four “challenges,” all of which were directed at Gordon.

Challenges in the cards The new forum format introduced the use of challenge cards. Each participant was provided three and could use them to quiz or debate the responses of the other candidates. Jenkins, who is starkly against the port’s marina expansion project and lost a recent battle in court to fight the sale of $878,000 in bonds, charged Gordon with supporting a project that used up almost all of the port’s borrowing ability and was a low priority on the comprehensive plan. Gordon argued that the bond sales were only a small portion of the port’s bonding capacity, and that it was the biggest tool it had to create jobs. The facility was already owned and the improvements

will make room for larger tourism boats, which he said would result in increased commerce and employment. Jenkins used his second challenge immediately to dispute Gordon’s claim that the port still has bonding capacity. Gordon repeated that the port “was nowhere near” its borrowing limit. Port administrative officials were unable to answer the question when contacted earlier this week due to a financial officer being out of the office. Lauderdale was the third to challenge Gordon when he questioned him about whether or not he believes it’s government’s responsibility to create jobs with tax money After jokingly offering some of his challenge cards to his fellow candidates, a jest that resulted in healthy chuckles from the crowd, Gordon responded to Lauderdale with an emphatic yes. “It is absolutely the job of the port district and every port district in the state of Washington to strive for economic development and access to waterways; it’s very simple,” Gordon said. State law establishes ports as junior taxing districts, and according to the Washington Public Port Association’s website, economic development and job creation is one of their primary charges. Gordon’s final challenge came from Morrison, who also quizzed the port commissioner about the marina expansion plan. He claimed that the project was predicated on the assumption years ago that it would generate 400 new jobs. He said he thought it was outrageous at the time and questions the use of $1.2 million in Island County Rural Economic Development funds. Gordon again turned the tables on his challenger with a quip and a grin. “Thanks for the air time guys,” he said, earning a healthy round of laughter from the crowd. He then went over the funding specifics of the project in greater detail while emphasizing that the expansion wasn’t so much about year-round moorage but is about transient moorage that will facilitate economic development.

The environment Candidates were also quizzed on environmental and conservation priorities, specifically the management of water resources and the Conservation Futures Fund. Jenkins said protecting the island’s resources should be done at all costs and that the

www.Southwhidbeyrecord.com

biggest problem today is lack of enforcement. He suggested the county begin allowing other non-professionals to inspect neighbors’ septic systems, particularly for the elderly, and that some fees should be reduced but overall made it clear he supports responsible resource management. “Whatever has to be done, we have to do it,” Jenkins said. “I don’t think we can afford to be wrong.” As for the futures fund, a special pot of money garnered from property taxes that’s used to purchase or protect a variety of different types of undeveloped land in Island County, he said it was a no brainer. Others were less supportive. Lauderdale said it “is a good program, or at least it was.” He criticized the program, saying that it may take a million years but that eventually the county would end up owning “every square inch” of Whidbey and Camano islands. The county is struggling financially to maintain the parks it has yet the program results in additional purchases every year. The county should consider not levying the money and buying property on an annual basis, he said. Lauderdale said it’s the county’s duty to protect its water resources but said the septic system inspection program and the Clean Water Utility “have absolutely nothing to do with our aquifer.” He said spending has to be defined and prioritized. Gordon said the county’s septic inspection program gets a lot of attention but that he’s more worried about storm water. The Clean Water Utility may help fund some necessary projects, such as in Freeland, he said. Gordon, who was one of the first members and a long time chair of the technical advisory, one of two that help select futures fund projects, said he participated in the effort to secure public places such as Double Bluff and Ala Spit. While he shares some concerns about too much property, he fully supports the program. Morrison,addressingwater resource management, started off by saying he doesn’t believe “the Olympics is forcing water underneath the bay and having it rise magically on Whidbey Island.” However, he said water quality is absolutely crucial and is concerned about salt water intrusion and septic system management. As for the futures fund, he said it was a good program provided that it is managed properly and is used for good projects.

Price Johnson called water “our most precious resource” and briefly described the history behind the septic system inspection program and an unpopular $62 fee. While the fee has since been removed — the funding it provided is now covered by the Clean Water Utility tax — she maintained that the community should fund the preservation of the resource. “It’s our responsibility to look after our water and we should be paying for that,” she said. She was equally supportive of the futures fund, saying it has preserved “some of the most wonderful places” on Whidbey and Camano islands. It also helps sustain agriculture by providing funding for the purchase of development rights, which helps farmers stay in business, she said.

Vulcan mind melds While the candidates addressed a range of other topics, from law and justice funding to the recent Deep Sea sunken boat crisis in Penn Cove, some of the most interesting responses of the evening came during closing comments. Gordon pitched himself as the “no party” candidate, saying his lack of party ties was one of his greatest strengths. Voters can have more of what they had for the past four years by voting for the incumbent and maintaining the Democratic majority or they can have the changes that would come from conservatitives, pointing out that Lauderdale worked on Commissioner Kelly Emerson’s campaign. “What I’m here to offer you today is balance,” Gordon said. Jenkins said the commissioner’s salary “is way too much” and promised to work toward greater transparency and public education of the goings on of government. If elected, he promised to use $25,000 of his paycheck on monthly advertorials in the newspaper and to spend the rest on tourism promotion. “Beyond that, you’d get someone who thinks out of the box and isn’t part of the political system,” Jenkins said. “I’ve been successful in the past and I’ll be successful again working for all of you,” he said. Price Johnson said “the future of our county is at risk in this election,” citing the realities of the tight budget. She noted accomplishments while she’s been in office, such as the 30-percent increase in lodging receipts during a recession, making

Page A9

the county the “envy of Puget Sound.” She promised to continue to bring greater government transparency and preserve the present quality of life. She said she was proud to call Whidbey Island home and asked for the public’s vote. Lauderdale started off by refuting Gordon’s comments concerning Commissioner Emerson. “I voted for Kelly Emerson but I didn’t do a Vulcan mind-meld with her,” said Lauderdale, earning a chorus of laughter. “I’m my own person and I’m a Republican by choice because it, in general, describes my politics.” He went on to say that it matters who is in office. Referencing his Navy career and his expertise as a “nuclear and mechanical engineer,” he said he was “uniquely” qualified for the job. He also noted that he has been attending commissioner meetings regularly for more than two years — the only candidate in both the District 1 and District 2 races to do so.

He said he has listened and is prepared to do the job and believes “a small government is the best government.” Finally, Morrison said he works for a living and that bureaucracy is choking the life from local businesses. He referenced pending changes to shoreline development rules and that they will only make things worse. There are efficiencies to be had in the county budget, and his vision is to improve sustainable employment. Personal expenses continue to rise while salaries remain stagnant and it’s a trend that must stop, he said. “We are in serious financial times, we need strong financial management and believe we need to get the maximum return on investment for the money we spend,” Morrison said.

Hometown Hero No matter what, Sandy Gilbert stays optimistic while helping others By Susan Knickerbocker Contributing writer

Sandy Gilbert has experienced more than her share of sorrows. And through it all, the popular South Whidbey teacher remains optimistic, helpful and giving for the sake of her family and community. Ann Chambers is just one of many who are thankful they ran into Gilbert and, as a result, saw a positive change in their lives. “I was definitely a rescue, the day Sandy Gilbert came into my life 12 years ago with her optimistic outlook,” said Chambers, a school volunteer. “I had barely survived a surgery that had gone south, and from that I lost my career job, then my house. Worst of all during that same time I lost my dog and horse. Feeling sorry for myself was a daily occurrence. That attitude gets real boring after a while. Finally I gathered the courage to volunteer at Langley Middle School, that’s when I met Sandy Gilbert, the most positive teacher. “My thought at first was to volunteer a couple of hours a day one day a week. But after being in Sandy Gilbert’s class and witnessing the enthusiasm of her students, within one week I became a full-time volunteer five days a week, seven hours a day. “Sandy has been the inspiration and the backbone of anything I may have accomplished and continue to do. I can’t begin to tell you the ‘job’ satisfaction I have, all made possible with Sandy’s positive outlook.” Gilbert’s positive outlook helps in practical ways and inspires countless students and adults, said fellow teacher, Pat Nostrand. “Sandy is one of the most optimistic people I know. Whether the loss of a family member or extreme damage to her home, she maintains a smile and has something hopeful to say. We can all benefit from that attitude. What a great way to live.” Talking with Gilbert is as easy as breathing; any question posed to her is met with a sincere desire to comment honestly and thoughtfully, with laughter inserted. She serves a spread of homemade rich desserts and cut fruit. While she pours coffee, she reflects on the question of loss. “I’ve lived in a dark hole before, there’s nothing worse.” She begins to cry. “For instance when my younger sister died in the Alaska Airlines 2000 plane crash and then shortly after my brother passed away that was one of those times. I remember crying all the way to work, then stopping and becoming a teacher, then crying all the way home, then stopping to become a wife and mother. When we are battered with grief, guilt, worry or whatever has us, it’s horrible,

Some of life’s loss and pains are ones we cannot get over but we can work with it. “When my eldest sister lost her daughter under very difficult circumstances, I held her and we cried together, we have to grieve, we have to cry, and we have to decide to go on with life. “We can stay in our hole of despair and finish our days in the dark, or we can crawl out and make something of ourselves.” Gilbert became involved with Ryan’s House for Youth, a group working to open a homeless youth shelter on Whidbey, named after a young man who also died in the Alaska plane crash. Gilbert has put her efforts into memorials for grieving families and friends of those 88 killed in the crash. “I wanted to keep my sister’s memory alive and help others do the same for their family and friends. “This is such a diverse world with many views.

grief. It’s not mine, but it’s so important not to judge people for their faith or ideas. I remember one Halloween I took our 6-year-old daughter Karla to join a community party. The lady stopped us at the entrance and said in a disapproving tone that we weren’t allowed in, because Karla was dressed as a ghost. I tried to talk to her but the lady wouldn’t listen, so we removed her hat and went in only to see pirates were allowed in. “I thought as a Christian I would remember how this felt so I wouldn’t treat anyone like this. So when other Alaska flight family members felt their loved ones had been reincarnated, even though this isn’t what I believe, I honor their beliefs. One dear lady lost both of her children in that crash, sadly she has never been able to crawl out of her hole of sadness. I do pray for her. I don’t know why tragedies happen in this world, perhaps so we will all keep praying.” When Gilbert was 4, her parents divorced due to alcohol problems and stress. Next, her 8-year-old sister drowned. Her mother was devastated, but she had faith and shared that with her children.

solve problems with actions.’ We couldn’t afford a home, so my mom became a realtor/broker. We couldn’t afford new clothes so she opened a clothing store. For affordable family vacations, my mom became a travel agent. I always knew who I was from my mom’s love and faith. “I knew I was a child of God. And even though we rarely saw our father, his extended family (members) were supportive Christians that helped to fill the gap, even to this day.” When Gilbert was 18, her father suddenly died from illness related to drinking. At the age of 31 at Christmastime, her mom died from a stroke. “I started down that path of despair, sobbing daily — until I realized I could keep her memory alive, for example my mom was a singer, so I gave my children singing lessons. My mom was Norwegian so I joined the Daughters of Norway. “When I find I am feeling sad and down, I pray, and listen to music to help change my mood. I try to see the glass half full, or see the movie screen full, I don’t see the black on the bottom and top, I see the full movie screen in the middle. I desperately want to see the best parts in life, and help others see the good too.” Once, she took a class on stress. The teacher asked them to write down everything on earth that they worry about and put the list of worries in a drawer. “Every day I pulled out that list for five minutes and worried like hell and then put it away until the next day,” Gilbert said. Now she focuses on the positive, and puts her thoughts there. “This is an incredible community of people we live in, I am thankful to be a part of it, I’m thankful for my faith, family and job. “I know a lot of people have a difficult life, try to look at the mountains, water, trees and animals. Find a volunteer group that might meet your needs. Do everything you can to not allow your mind to take you to that dark hole. Think about what legacy, story, you want to leave behind about your life. For me, I don’t want people to think of my worries and sorrows. I want my story to be about how I helped people.” Lynne Malecki, a retired Langley Middle School teacher, said Gilbert is all about helping others.

Sandy Gilbert is this month’s Hometown Hero. The Langley Middle School math teacher now volunteers and is on the board of directors for Ryan’s House for Youth, which plans to build a youth homeless shelter on the South End. “I have known Sandy for over 25 years. She has always placed herself in the middle of some major undertaking that benefits those around her and advances a special cause,” Malecki said. “She helped to raise funds for a young boy in the intermediate school diagnosed with leukemia and needing a bone marrow transplant. She taught everyone about bone marrow donors and put her efforts into recruiting new donors. She’s championed St. Jude’s Children’s Hospital at the middle school by holding a math-a-thon to raise money for children needing medical help each year. “Sandy has always had causes,” Malecki said. “And she is very persuasive at engaging volunteers, encouraging creative

ideas for fundraising, and not taking any glory for herself. While many of us feel helpless in such situations, she is always able to muster forces and organize everyone to do something helpful. This gives herself and others a hopeful outlook and a new perspective to move forward.”

Playwright brings Flora in from the fringe

Jim Carroll and Ethan Berkley play the roles of Jay and Brad in “Outsider,” in which Jay, a biology professor, makes first contact with an indigenous woman, Flora.

BY Rebecca olson Staff reporter

The Whidbey Island Fringe Festival presents what organizers describe as “an evocative new play,” written and directed by local playwright and actor Gail Fleming. “Outsider,” opens Friday, July 27 and runs through Sunday, Aug. 5, with an art show July 27. “Outsider” is a unique blend of drama, music, dance and the poetry of William Blake. Whidbey Island Center for the Arts audiences are invited into the magical world of Flora, who has lived alone

in the woods for 25 years tending her garden, gathering herbs and drawing. With an indigenous sense of belonging in nature, she has developed an original language to communicate with everything that surrounds her. Flora lives a rich and peaceful life with her companion golden eagle, until Jay Thompson, a professor of biology interested in inter-species communication, “discovers” her conversing with birds in her meadow. The meeting has profound effects upon them both, as they each experience and confront the consequences of fear, loss, objectification, trust and the intimacy of language. “Outsider” cast includes Judith Adams, Ethan Berkley, Jim Carroll, Lars Larson, Shellie Moore and Marta Mulholland. Fleming described her inspiration for “Outsider” by saying, “Flora asked me to tell her story. Considering the environmental effects of our ‘modern’ attitude towards nature, I readily agreed. She would like for us to remember that there is reason for hope.” “As I see it, it is our dualistic stance towards the environment — the arrogant objectification of all that is non human; the assumption that we are separate and somehow superior — that has led us to the brink of ecological disaster,” Fleming said. The play is rich with poetry by Blake, who has inspired Fleming for years. One of her favorite lines by Blake is: “If the doors of perception were cleansed everything would appear to man as it is, infinite. For man has closed himself up, till he sees all things through narrow chinks of his cavern.” It is Fleming’s goal to “cleanse the doors of perception”

with her play, she said. Through Fleming’s lyrical creation, “Outsider” invites audience members to explore the essence of their own relationship with nature. “A theme I am exploring in this play is wildness — outside and inside — and the relationship between the two,” Fleming said. Another main theme is listening and how that simple act could change the outcome for the planet, Fleming added. “Outsider” is meant to be an “experiential” play, in which the audience can experience the story through every sense. With songs, dancing and Flora’s unique click language, audience members will truly touch on her world. The play is set in 1970 at the University of California Santa Cruz around the time that Fleming lived there. “In a loose way, it’s semi-autobiographical because I grew up kind of wild and related much more naturally to animals than I did to people, and I talked to everything, which is what Flora does,” Fleming said with a laugh. WICA regulars will remember that Fleming wrote and directed the musical “Gaielle Remembering” at WICA in 2003. She most recently appeared on the WICA stage in “Kentucky Cycle,” “A Murder is Announced” and “The Laramie Project.” “The Whidbey Island Fringe Festival allows adventurous artists and audiences to explore a variety of works: music, movement, everyday life and cultural performance; stage adaptations of texts and other materials; and the avantgarde and performance art,” said Stacie Burgua, executive director of WICA. Burgua said the festival presents

Ryan’s House host program renews hope for island’s homeless kids BY BEN WATANABE Staff reporter

OAK HARBOR — Homeless and pregnant, Lydia Rodriguez was at a difficult crossroads. The teenager, at the time 16, had to decide her next steps about her pregnancy, school and the urgent matter of shelter. This non-episode of MTV’s “16 and Pregnant” had its dramatic moments, but what expecting teenager would be entirely calm? A lot of problems were avoided when Rodriguez stopped couch surfing and called Lori Cavender, the executive director of Ryan’s House for Youth, who is known across the island as the van lady for her boxy white van that supplies homeless youths from Clinton to Deception Pass with cloth-

of building a shelter for homeless teens on Whidbey Island in the Scatchet Head area on South Whidbey. The property at 7800 Mortland Drive was donated, and raising capital to build a home from the foundation up has been slow-going with dwindling grant funds, though the well was recently finished. Although the future shelter will be on the South End, Cavender was adamant that homeless youths are an island-wide concern. “We need people to understand that opening their doors to a young student isn’t inviting in a juvenile delinquent,” she said. “They’re basically students that are staying in school and want to be part of a family.” Such was the case for Rodriguez and her host family. Though expecting a child while enrolled in high school was not ideal, Svahn and Wrazin quickly realized during a phone conversation with Rodriguez that she was not a trouble-maker and would be a perfect trial case for a host program through Ryan’s House. The two social workers know the need for supportive families when it comes to teens in trouble, and how compassion can positively affect a youth. With 104 homeless youths

ing, soap, school supplies and sleeping bags. “I kind of didn’t have a choice because I was homeless,” Rodriguez said. That simple conversation led to a couple of phone calls with Heidi Svahn and Julie Wrazin, both 48, of Oak Harbor. The women had raised their children and were considering adoption and foster care, when Cavender called them with a dire need: House a pregnant teen for an undetermined length. Rodriguez moved in by December and moved out in June, ready to create a new space for her baby daughter and her. “This is kind of a passion for us,” Wrazin said. “We’ve raised five kids between us.” Ryan’s House for Youth has expanded its services. The nonprofit still has its main goal

Heidi Svahn, left, admires her pseudo-granddaughter Marley, with mom Lydia Rodriguez, 17, and Julie Wrazin. Svahn and Wrazin hosted Rodriguez for several months after she became homeless in November. identified by Ryan’s House and island school counselors, there is a hole in the social safety net. “These kids, a lot of them would have succeeded if they had some more support,” Svahn said. Solving homelessness for youths is a ways out for Whidbey Island, and Cavender knows it. With the shelter a year away from completion at the earliest, something had to be done in the meantime, and the host program offered Cavender a temporary solution to a birth-of-civilization problem. As of July, after only five months or so of officially soliciting the program to families on Whidbey Island, five

teens found a placement ranging from a few days to a few months. The process begins with a youth requesting placement with a host family. Host families are given background checks through the Department of Social and Health Services and the Washington State Patrol, as well as a house visit by Cavender. Then a kind of courting begins between the youth and the host, where both parties try to feel out whether living together could work. “The student has to feel comfortable with them (the host family),” Cavender said. “We need a variety of host families so we can find a per-

fect fit.” Rodriguez living with Svahn and Wrazin, they all admitted, was not perfect. Like often happens with new parties residing together, they went through growing pains. Not only were they learning to co-habitate, the three moms jointly cared for a newborn girl, all while becoming familiar with one another — six months earlier, they had never met. They even moved from a three-bedroom rental to a house Svahn and Wrazin bought in the north part of town, where the host parents noticed their monthly bills increase only about $50 or $75 with Rodriguez in the house. “I think that’s why you moved out, (the house) was too big,” Svahn said to Rodriguez. For the most part, Svahn and Wrazin enjoyed hosting Rodriguez and baby Marley, now 3 months old. Between being pregnant and then having a newborn around, Rodriguez was too tired to get into trouble, Svahn said, laughing. The support of a family, or at least what substituted as a family, came in handy when the teenager was in labor. “Heidi, she held me while I got the epidural,” Rodriguez said.

What others say about Sandy:

Freeland. It was a huge success, I’m sure a lot had to do with Sandy’s wonderful leadership. This past November, our lodge hosted the Nordic Fest here on South Whidbey. The community and the Nordic Fest vendors have been treated to quality entertainment all thanks to Sandy as the NF entertainment chair.” — DeAnn Olson, volunteer

“I have known Sandy for about six years now. First as my children’s teacher, then as a teacher in the class I volunteered in, then as a friend, now as one of my partners in the forming of Ryan’s House for Youth. Sandy is hard working, going above and beyond what is required because her heart and faith always guide her life. The thing I love most about Sandy is how she cares for her students beyond their homework — the student as a whole person.” — Lori Cavender, Ryan’s House for Youth director

Sandy Gilbert, center, celebrates with friends and family on the lot of a youth shelter.

“Love of life and a contagious positive spirit have always been what I admire most in my mother. We shape our worlds by the outlook we maintain, and

my mom’s positivity and caring nature has been strong enough to influence so many lives in addition to our family. I am so proud of you, Mom. You

are my hero!” — Andy Gilbert, son “I have known Sandy a number of years through the daughters of Norway

“My mother, my personal hero, my best friend, my angel. I have been showered with love and have always known my mom is there for me. In my teens I realized my mom was not only helping my brother and me through life, but helping many others pursue their dreams or chase their fears. I realized my mother had a gift of unconditional love for every child or adult she would encounter. She’s wanted to change the world, find the good in everyone and help anyone in need in any possible way she could. Her faith and her positive outlook on life always move her forward even when she’s faced losses. Thank you Mom, I promise to follow in your footsteps, give my faith and worries to God and to love my family with all I am. With love, your ‘little Ru’.” — Karla Gilbert, daughter “Sandy really knows how to make a volunteer feel useful. She has my rapt attention as I relearn math from her style, and the students’ works. In meeting her students years later, they remember her as a favorite teacher. She purchased a used cash register and ‘play’ bills and coins, for teaching. Students practice together, ‘tending store’ managing credit, deposits, making purchases, paying bills and making change. During one of these money handling practices, a student whispered to me, ‘Couldn’t we just use a credit card?’” — Ann Sullivan, volunteer “Sandy has been a friend and teaching colleague since before the birth of our children. She has never been one to remain idle. It is because of Sandy that I am forever grateful, that I got a teaching job with South Whidbey. Sandy, a fabulous person, neighbor, teacher and friend. She’s tireless. Sandy has an amazing talent in the classroom, I know because she taught math to my three kids. The students all love Mrs. Gilbert. She’s a family

first gal. She’s a straightshooter and will always be there when needed.” — Carolyn Bippart, third grade teacher “Sandy is the cheerleader’s cheerleader. Working with her is as effortless as being with your best friend on a sunny day. Everything Sandy touches is gold. Look at her family and friends. Thank you Sandy for being such a scarce person, serving community cheerleader and pioneer spirit.” — Jim Freeman, volunteer “Sandy has taught countless middle school students to understand and love math — no easy feat, even if you love math and middle school students. She is a master at setting up opportunities and programs for community volunteers to connect with and help students in her classroom. We have worked to bring our sixth graders each year, for more years than I can count, to help transform the location of South Whidbey’s Holiday House into a warm and festive space, and before that we brought them to set up the Seattle Salvation Army’s Toy and Joy space. Even though we work together, it’s Sandy who initiates the efforts each year. She’s the one that makes the first call, sends the follow-up emails, reserves the buses and makes it all happen.” — Rosemarie Donnelly, teacher and volunteer “Sandy is a teacher who is passionate about helping kids and being involved in community projects. I remember fondly how she and her kids put on a show to raise money for the ‘Save Lolita’ project. Sandy also organizes bone marrow donations and is always involved in getting senior citizens to volunteer in the school. She has a regular group of seniors from the ‘Sea Biscuits’ in her classroom. Working with her is always full of connections, and laughter.” — Jan Mahaffey, teacher and volunteer “We’ve known Sandy since our grandson was in her classroom 21 years ago. Sandy has always had such a positive influence on all children. She’s a good friend, who is first in line to buy a book that a local author writes or bring chicken soup when you need it. She’s always a pleasure in everything she does.” — Martha and Bill Martin

A crew working for Dateline NBC sits up front at Island County Superior Court during the James Huden trial.

June 9, 2011 after being arrested in Guadalajara, Mexico. “Great, it’s just terrific,” said Jim Douglas, the father of the victim. “We appreciate everything the prosecutor’s office has done. They’ve treated us tremendously well. We’re extremely grateful for the jury; no one relishes sitting on a murder trial.” “It’s a real relief.” Huden, 59, will remain in custody in Island County jail without bail until the sentencing hearing at 1:30 p.m. Friday, Aug. 24. Island County Prosecutor Greg Banks said he would recommend an exceptional sentence, which could put Huden in jail for close to 32 years, because of the premeditated nature of the crime. “A 31-year sentence does not come close to accounting for the

malevolence of this crime,” Banks said. Banks called the crime an assassination, in which he proposed Huden and his accomplice, Peggy Thomas (to be tried Nov. 13), lured Douglas to a remote area of Freeland. Douglas drove to Wahl Road, looking for the dirt driveway where he would retrieve a gift for his wife, and instead was shot between the eyes while wearing a pair of blue sunglasses that fragmented and scattered in the car. One of the reasons for the duration of the case, though it was shorter than Banks initially projected, was the number of witnesses the state called upon. More than 20 witnesses — the victim’s widow, Huden’s former friends and acquaintances, Wahl Road residents, forensics experts and police — from across the country converged on Coupeville to testify for the prosecution’s case. Brenna Douglas testified about her husband leaving the morning of Dec. 26, 2003 to run errands and never returning, and also addressed a restraining order against her thenestranged husband she had inquired about with Island County Sheriff’s deputies. Their marriage was not perfect, she said, and explained that at times Douglas’ frustrations would get the better of him, leading to thrown chairs and yelling. Their relationship was improving, she testified, at the time he was gunned down. A former friend of Huden’s who knew him when he lived in Punta Gorda, Fla., cracked the case for Island County investigators. He called the sheriff’s office in August 2004 and asked about a murder around Christmas 2003, and said he may know who did it. Bill Hill, a Port Charlotte, Fla., resident on the Gulf Coast, had played with Huden in a band, Buck Naked and the X-hibitionists. One day while driving north to Sarasota, Fla., Huden told Hill about murdering Douglas, and inferred it was a revenge killing of sorts for Huden’s abusive childhood. Another former friend, Keith Ogden, further propelled the investigation when he called the sheriff’s office and said he may have the murder weapon, a Bersa .380 semiautomatic handgun. The two men met while Huden lived in Las Vegas, and Ogden had shown Huden how to disassemble, clean and fire the pistol in Ogden’s backyard. Ogden also testified he instructed Huden how to suppress the noise of the pistol with a pillow or plastic soda bottle. Ogden turned the weapon over to the police, who were able to trace it back to the original owner, Martin Snytshuevel, who also lived in Las Vegas and said his dad sold the gun for him through an advertisement in a newspaper.
