Oak Harbor grad plans her return By REBECCA OLSON Staff reporter

It’s the excitement of the sport that keeps this 26-yearold coming back to achieve higher and higher honors. And in her medal-winning competition at the Olympic Games in London, there was no shortage of exhilaration as she threw Italy’s eighthranked judo star for the win in under three minutes. Marti Malloy, a 2004 graduate of Oak Harbor High School, was the second woman from the United States to win an Olympic medal for judo, and the United States’ 11th judo medalist overall. “It was great!” Malloy’s voice was still charged with excitement as she spoke

about her experience at the Olympics, although she recently returned to her home in San Jose, Calif. “It was kind of like an electric atmosphere from start to finish.” Just making it to the Olympics was a dream come true for Malloy, but “being able to come back with a medal was kind of like the icing on the cake of the whole experience,” Malloy said. Despite the pressure to perform in her medal-winning match, Malloy said she forced herself to stay calm. “It felt good,” Malloy said of competing. “Obviously, I was pretty nervous. I tried to think of it like any other judo tournament I was fight-

ing in. I tried to tell myself to enjoy it and I’m glad I did.” Malloy, who has practiced judo since age 6 and said for years that she planned to make it to the Olympics someday, anticipated earning a medal at the Games but she didn’t anticipate the whirlwind afterward. Media, interviews, photos — it all blended into a thrilling tornado. What she can remember is the moment she learned she had earned a bronze medal. “It’s actually one of the weirdest sensations I’ve ever had. It’s the happiest you’ve ever been but you’re crying,” Malloy said. “At the same time, I felt disbelief, in shock that I had a medal and it hit me all at once. It was a

really great feeling!” Her entire time in London was great, Malloy said. Her parents, Marty and Merry Malloy of Oak Harbor, joined her in London and they had the opportunity to visit Tower Bridge and see Big Ben. The famous London landmark Malloy saw the most of was the Tube, “because I was riding the train everywhere,” Malloy laughed. Olympic Park was particularly thrilling to Malloy, the See Malloy, A10

By the year 2020, Oak Harbor residents could pay anywhere from $86 to $116 a month to flush their toilets. Shawn Koorn of HDR Engineering spoke via Skype during last week’s special workshop on the future wastewater treatment facility and laid out the many variables that could affect the rates residents pay for sewer service. What’s clear is that the rates will more than double, and possibly even triple, in the next eight years to pay for an estimated $93.5-million wastewater treatment facility. The current residential rate is $36.52 a month. The City Council voted last week to build the state-of-theart, membrane-bioreactor plant next to Windjammer Park downtown in the area of the old Chevrolet dealership. Koorn explained that the biggest variable is Navy participation in the project. The city currently manages the sewage treatment at lagoons on the Navy’s Seaplane Base. The Navy contracts with the city and pays a rate in exchange for the treatment of

sewage from Navy property. In an interview last week, City Engineer Eric Johnston said Navy officials are aware of the city’s plans, but they haven’t made any decision about sewage treatment. The Navy could continue to operate the lagoons on their own, or work with the city. Under the best case scenario, Koorn estimated that the Navy would contribute $17.5 million to the construction of the wastewater treatment plant. That would result in an estimated rate of $86 a month per household by 2020. If the Navy only contributed $8 million, the rate would increase to $92 a month. In a not-so-great scenario, Koorn said rates could more than triple to $116 a month by 2020 if the Navy doesn’t contribute anything and the city gets a 20-year bond at 6 percent. At a more-realistic 4.75 percent, the rate would drop to $104. A 30-year bond at 5.25 percent would further lower the rate to $98. Koorn pointed out that the numbers don’t take into account possible grants or low-interest loans. Johnston told the council that the city can start pursuing grants now that the sewer siting decision is made.

Fall lands Coupeville pastor in Harborview By NATHAN WHALEN Staff reporter

Pastor Garrett Arnold is spending his wedding anniversary in Harborview Medical Center recovering from injuries he sustained in a serious fall Friday afternoon. The respected pastor of Living Hope Foursquare Church in Coupeville broke his back after falling about 25 feet down an embankment Friday morning in Ledgewood. Arnold is currently in stable condition in the hospital’s intensive care unit, said Suzanne Zetter, treasurer at Living Hope Foursquare Church. She said Arnold suffered several broken vertebrae which surgeons had to fuse together during surgery Friday. She said its expected he will be hospitalized for about a month. “The family is extremely grateful of the outpouring of the community’s love and prayer,” Zetter said Monday

morning. She said well wishers from churches from across the country and as far away as Australia and the Netherlands have sent thoughts and prayers to the Arnold family. “It’s been powerful,” Zetter said. Comments from well wishers have also been flooding the church’s Facebook page. To see updates about Arnold, go to Living Hope in Coupeville on Facebook. Arnold has been senior pastor at Living Hope Foursquare Church, located near the intersection of Broadway and Highway 20, since 1997. He came to Whidbey Island in 1994 to serve as associate and youth pastor at Living Hope. Arnold and his wife, Sylvia, celebrated their 24th wedding anniversary Monday. Garrett’s family was with him at Harborview over the weekend. On Friday morning, Arnold was trimming grass

near an embankment in the Ledgewood area when he fell approximately 25 feet and was stuck there for nearly three hours before a woman walking on the beach discovered him. Arnold fell around 10:30 a.m. and firefighters weren’t called until 1:21 p.m. He was eventually transported by ambulance to the Greenbank Farm where he could be airlifted to Harborview. Zettle said the guests at Harborview are limited to family. People can get involved in supporting the Arnold family as Garrett recovers from his injuries. A special worship service is scheduled for Wednesday, Aug. 22, from 7 to 8 p.m. at the Coupeville church. Special worship services will take place each Wednesday through September. A special fund, is also being set up at People’s Bank where folks can donate to help offset the signifi-

After 9 years, justice served as Huden gets 80 By JESSIE STENSLAND Staff reporter

The man who planned and carried out a murder on a secluded South Whidbey road at Christmastime nine years ago finally faced justice in a courtroom Tuesday morning. James Huden sat stonefaced during the sentencing hearing in Island County Superior Court as the judge handed down an exceptional sentence of 80 years, virtually guaranteeing that the 55-yearold will die in prison. He stared without emotion as family members of the victim, 32-year-old Russel Douglas, addressed him and explained how his murderous act changed their lives irrevocably. He was silent as they pleaded with him to explain why he committed the murder and to name who else was involved. Following a trial in July, a jury found Huden guilty of first-degree murder while armed with a firearm, plus an aggravating factor that allows the judge to impose an exceptional sentence beyond the standard range. Namely, the jury found that Douglas was particularly vulnerable because he was unsuspecting and seat-belted in his vehicle when he was shot between the eyes. Huden’s alleged accomplice, former beauty queen Peggy Sue Thomas, has also been charged with murder for allegedly luring Douglas to Wahl Road in Freeland with the promise of a “gift”

for his wife. She is scheduled to go to trial in November. Tuesday, Island County Prosecutor Greg Banks asked the judge to impose an exceptional sentence of 80 years in prison, which is two and a half times the top of the standard sentencing range. “Mr. Huden deserves an exceptional sentence for an exceptionally malevolent crime,” Banks said. Banks said that Huden has done nothing to warrant mercy. The prosecutor offered him a plea bargain in exchange for information about the crime, but he refused to cooperate. Banks explained that his reasoning for recommending 80 years was based on Douglas’ two children and the assumption that he would have lived 40 years longer if it wasn’t for Huden’s actions. “They were each robbed of those 40 years of growing up and spending those years with their dad,” he said. Douglas’ sister, Holly Frasco, wept as she spoke about how Huden stole her brother from her with a single shot that was fired on Dec. 26, 2003. It was her birthday. “There can no longer be a celebration of my life without the harsh reality that Russ is no longer with us,” she said, asking the judge to ensure that Huden never gets out of prison. “I was there to give him his first hug but I can never do that again,” his mother, Gail Oneal, said as she faced Huden, “and I was not there

Matthew Douglas spoke

about his brother’s and his own service in the military and the cruel irony that his brother should die so senselessly. “As I serve to preserve the health of our American service members in fighting our nation’s conflicts, I know there is no disease and no enemy that represents the same malice as you,” he said. Jim Douglas described how his son had been working on building a better life and was truly learning the joys of being a father when his life was taken away from

City annexation creates county island Oak Harbor grows by 10.4 acres By JESSIE STENSLAND Staff reporter

The city of Oak Harbor became 10.43 acres larger this month, but the process created another “enclave” of county unincorporated property that’s completely surrounded by property within the city limits. The City Council approved a request a couple of weeks ago to annex the Marin property on SW Swantown Road. Richard Marin submitted the initial request to bring the property into the city in 2010, but the enclave issue delayed the process. The city’s Comprehensive Plan includes a policy that advises against

the creation of unincorporated enclaves in the interest of good planning and the efficient delivery of city services. In 2010, the council expand the proposed annexation to include the enclave area, which is located in the area SW Thornberry Drive on the north side of Swantown. The council members authorized Marin to circulate a petition and pursue obtaining signatures for property owners representing 60 percent of the assessed value of this proposed area; the 60 percent is required for an annexation to go through under state law. Two years later, only five property owners agreed to be annexed, which was far short of the 60 percent necessary. Several residents within the enclave issue spoke at the meeting concerned

about coming into the city, especially about having to pay higher taxes and fees. “Seems to me I’m going to be paying an awful lot of city taxes and getting little city services,” said resident Larry Larson. City planners recommended that the council change the annexation to allow the Marin property and six adjacent properties — including a few owned by people who didn’t sign — to be annexed into the city. The majority of council members, however, didn’t want to force anyone into the city, so they voted to annex just the Marin property. The property will be zoned residential and can be developed into 35 units.

him. They had made plans to take his children on trips to the same locations he had taken Douglas as a youngster. Douglas’ stepfather, Bob Oneal, summed up the frustration of family members over the unanswered questions. “I’m going to miss my son,” he said, addressing Huden. “I just don’t understand why he is dead because, for God’s sake, you didn’t even know him. Did you ever investigate anything about him? Did you ever ask to find out

anything about who you were killing?” Again and again, family members pleaded with Huden to explain why he shot a man who was a stranger to him and to say who else was involved, but he was silent. His attorney, Matt Montoya of Oak Harbor, said they are planning to appeal the case so he advised his client not to speak. In imposing the sentence, Judge Vickie Churchill also focused on Huden’s lack of cooperation with police and all the question marks he’s left behind. “I too, like many of the family members, would like to know why,” she said. “There’s something more, you know it, we all know it, but you refuse to speak.” At trial, the prosecution asserted that Huden’s motivation was premised on his belief that Douglas had been abusive to his children and that he believed “murdering Douglas would serve as a proxy killing of Huden’s own abusive step-father,” according to the prosecution’s sentencing memorandum. The family members, however, said Douglas and his wife may have had a difficult relationship, but he was a good father and never abusive. Douglas’ wife, former Langley resident Brenna Douglas, didn’t attend the sentencing hearing. Banks said he contacted her, but she was worried about exposure if the TV media showed up, which they didn’t.

Ferry reservations expand at Keystone By NATHAN WHALEN Staff reporter

The standby wait at Coupeville reached two hours one Friday this month while other drivers with the foresight to make a reservation for the ferry that crosses Admiralty Inlet scooted onto the boat. To lessen such waits in the future, ferry officials are hoping more people will make a reservation. To encourage that, plans are in the works to increase the reservation space on ferries serving the Port Townsend-to-Coupeville ferry route. The ferry system currently devotes half of the vehicle space on the 64-car ferries for vehicles that make reservations. Brian Churchwell, deputy reservation program manager for Washington State Ferries, said that, once the busy summer season wraps up, the ferry system will examine increasing the amount of space to somewhere between 70 percent and 80 percent. The most recent incarnation of the reservation system was implemented in June on the Port Townsendto-Coupeville ferry route and the Anacortes-to-Sidney, B.C., ferry routes. The Port Townsendto-Coupeville (formerly Keystone) route had a reservation system for several years when a smaller 50-car ferry served on the route. The big difference now is motorists have to make a deposit in order to make a reservation.

The deposit, which is equal to a senior/disabled fare of a driver’s vehicle, improves the rate at which people who make a reservation actually use it. Churchwell said that with the deposit requirement, 93 percent of the people who make a reservation show up to use it. Last year, the Port Townsend-to-Coupeville ferry route had a 35 to 40 percent no-show ratio. He added that improvement have allowed staff to better accommodate people who make a reservation. Some people last year would make multiple reservations throughout the day. Susan Harris-Huether, customer service manager for Washington State Ferries, said she knew of several people who would make four-tofive reservations throughout a day they planned to ride the ferry because they weren’t sure when they would actually show up. The new reservation system, which has tallied 55,000 reservations since going live, has hit some snags since being implemented. People are enduring an extended wait time at the ticket booth, particularly at the Coupeville side of the route. Harris-Huether said that people often don’t have their paperwork ready, most importantly, a printout containing the bar code reservation. “We’re looking at making transaction times faster in Coupeville,” Churchwell said.

In addition, she said people aren’t using the correct vehicle length when making a reservation, especially when it comes to the cheapest, under 14 feet in length fare. Churchwell pointed out that only 5 percent of the cars meet that requirement despite what owners might guess. Harris-Huether said that Toyota Prius owners are the biggest violators. When someone comes to the ticket booth with a larger vehicle than specified on the reservations, then the ticket agent has to measure the vehicle and make adjustments accordingly. Churchwell also said adjustments will be made in response to businesses that have fleets of vehicles that use the reservation system. The new reservation system is the first of a threephase effort to expand it throughout the system. Ferry officials want the system to better control volumes and encourage use during slow times. The next phase includes expanding the reservation system throughout the San Juan Islands and allowing commercial vehicle reservations throughout the ferry system. Churchwell said informative meetings should take place during the fall and the next part of the reservation expansion should begin in 2014. So far, Clinton to Mukilteo reservations have been exempted due to local opposition, although commercial rigs may be allowed to reserve a space.

Elected officials decline invitation to round table By JUSTIN BURNETT Staff reporter

The Island County Commissioners’ hopes for a recorded round table budget discussion with all department heads was derailed last week when a host of elected officials refused to attend. The group notified the board by letter this past Friday that they would not be coming to the meeting largely because they believed it was a waste of time as the proposed format allowed each person just five minutes to speak. “We understand the board’s desire to produce a two-and-one-half hour comprehensive video presentation summarizing the work of 18 different offices,” the letter said. “However, we are convinced that a five-minute presentation during a twoand-one-half hour meeting is not an effective or efficient way to communicate our budgets to citizens or the to the board.” The letter was signed by Assessor Mary Engle, Auditor Sheilah Crider, Clerk Debra Van Pelt, Coroner Robert Bishop, Prosecutor

Greg Banks, Sheriff Mark Brown and Treasurer Ana Maria Nuñez. Superior Court Judges Alan Hancock and Vickie Churchill sent their own letter informing the board they would not be attending. In an Aug. 6 emailed to all department heads, most of whom are not elected officials, the board said it wanted this year’s budget process to be “open and comprehensive” so that both the public and staff would know how each department was faring. Each was asked prepare a five minute brief that described how their departments had been affected in the past four recessionary years, what efficiencies they had undertaken, what their priorities and goals are and how they would manage their budgets next year should they not get an increase. Brown, who isn’t shy about advocating the fiscal needs of his Sheriff’s Department, said in a later interview that his reasons for not attending were simply that he believed it was a poor use of his time. “It’s by no means meant to

be disruptive,” Brown said. “It’s meant to be practical.” Aside from a round table meeting, each department head is being given 15-to-30 minutes to make individual presentations to the board about their budgets. Brown said trying to repeat that but in a fraction of the time just didn’t make sense, he said. “I don’t think I could do it justice,” Brown said. The letter from the elected officials made it clear they all felt the same way. It said each was content to rely on the already scheduled budget workshops to present their individual proposals. Although it’s unclear whether non-elected department heads have the same qualms – they don’t have the luxury of refusing the board’s request – the round table meeting will still move forward but has been shortened to 90 minutes. While discussing the scheduling during Monday’s meeting, Commissioner Angie Homola said she was “discouraged” by the elected officials’ decline, saying it not only would have been beneficial to other department heads but to the com-

munity as well. With a round table, they could have watched just one meeting, rather than many individual ones, to find out what’s going on. “I’m discouraged we weren’t able to achieve that but we will move forward,” she said. Commissioner Kelly Emerson said little during the meeting but made it clear that she had not been in favor of the round table to begin with, saying she didn’t think it “was a beneficial route for us.” In a later interview, Commissioner Helen Price Johnson said she didn’t believe this was a precursor of a rocky budget process ahead. Rather, the board invited everyone for a collective budget conversation and elected officials exercised their right not to attend. “It was just an opportunity to have everyone at the table and if they chose not, that’s OK,” Price Johnson said. The round table will begins at 9:30 a.m. on Aug. 27 in the Commissioner’s Hearing Room in Coupeville.

Nobody’s dialing for dollars in city By JESSIE STENSLAND Staff reporter

Nobody at Oak Harbor City Hall is making $1,100 a month worth of 1-800 calls. During a meeting earlier this month, several members of the Oak Harbor City Council went over vouchers and questioned a giant bill associated with the phone number 240-2350. Finance Director Doug Merriman said he also noticed it and called the number, but nobody answered. Since then, Merriman investigated the mystery and discovered a rather

innocuous answer. It turns out that it’s a main switchboard line and many phones in City Hall and public works are billed to that one line. He describes it as a “computer line” off the trunk line and is for billing purposes. No computer or human can answer it. Merriman said the city went to “voice over internet protocol,” or VOIP, phone systems a couple of years ago, as a cost saving measure. The city has about 200 phones. In all, the city’s phone bill was $3,687 in July.

IN OUR OPINION

This time, work together The Oak Harbor City Council’s final 6-0 vote to put the new sewer plant downtown at the “Windjammer” site on Pioneer Way wasn’t as unanimous as it looked. The first vote calling for the plant to be built at an out-of-the-way spot on the north side of Crescent Harbor Road tied 3-3. With Councilman Danny Paggao absent, Mayor Scott Dudley broke the tie by voting against it. Then a motion was made for the Windjammmer site, and since the outcome was obvious, the council decided to make it unanimous. A check later with Paggao, who was out of town, was somewhat reassuring. He said he would have voted for the downtown site had he been present, so it would have passed without the mayor’s involvement. Dudley voted for the less costly option, even though in the long view costs were pretty much a toss-up. And he was willing to risk another Native American remains debacle, which is still ongoing after the controversial redevelopment of the east end of downtown Pioneer Way. The chosen site isn’t as bad as it sounds. It’s not in Windjammer Park. The existing plant there may be entirely removed, which would be a relief. The new plant will be built just to the north of the park in a former car lot. Its construction could, however, intrude into the city’s park. Too bad a motion by Councilman Rick Almberg to preclude that possibility didn’t pass. The council members who originally chose the winning site, Jim Campbell, Bob Severns and Tara Hizon, obviously struggled with their decision. It was a tough one so there’s no reason to disrespect their conclusion. Councilwoman Beth Munns, however, more accurately portrayed the feeling of the community when she in effect said that the people don’t want a sewer plant anywhere near the park after having lived with one there for 60 years. We believe Munns, along with Almberg and Servatius, were correct in the first vote for the Crescent Harbor North site. But we don’t want this decision to divide the city all over again. The modern plant won’t smell, it will make Puget Sound cleaner, and ultimately it may be possible to attract businesses or even arts venues to the area. The job now is to make the new sewer plant’s exact siting correct and to make it as attractive and beneficial as possible. Let’s work together for a change and build a better Oak Harbor.

Letters to the editor At 94, Navy still a blessing

I cannot stand by and let all of the anti-Navy people have their say. I have lived in Coupeville for 80 of my 94 years and I think we should applaud our military instead of railing against them. Now of all times with the situation in the world we need the protection that our men and women in all the services provide. They are making noise for a few hours out of our lives. All of the people who are complaining knew this was a problem before they moved here. Sometimes we have to realize that this isn’t Utopia, it’s Whidbey Island and there are a few minor

things that we have to put up with. God bless the Navy which has not only given us protection for the years they have been here, the have also given hundreds of citizens on our island jobs that they sorely need. Jean Sherman Coupeville

Price Johnson leads the way During my 20 years as a Whidbey Island resident, I have become increasingly concerned about preserving the quality of life in Island County while it moves ahead with responsible growth management. This year’s election for Island County commissioner is not about

party affiliation, but about selecting the best candidate to give Island County thoughtful and experienced leadership in these difficult times. I want to be sure the candidate I choose understands Island County, its people and our needs. When this happens we will be well represented. Helen Price Johnson has a proven track record for reelection that reflects raising a family of four children on Whidbey, operating a family owned business and serving in many community leadership positions including the board of directors, South Whidbey School District. As a county commissioner, she brings practical solutions to complex prob-

lems. For example, her work led to strengthening county emergency management services, restoring programs to ensure safe and plentiful drinking water, reducing county spending by restructuring departments, streamlining programs to benefit veterans and senior services and re-organizing ferry advisory committees to advocate increased state support for our marine highways. Helen Price Johnson brings a long standing commitment to support the quality of life for all of us in Island County. She listens, and we will be faithfully represented by re-electing her as county commissioner. Gene White Clinton

United Way shows the community cares obituaries United Way of Island County held its second annual Day of Caring Saturday, Aug. 4. Day of Caring has become a United Way tradition in many communities throughout America. It is a day when community volunteers partner with local agencies to come together for a few hours and perform acts of care for folks

within our community needing a little assistance and to generally “spruce up” the Island County community, according to a United Way of Island County press release. United Way partnered with the Interfaith Coalition of Whidbey Island, which brought over 60 volunteers from different faith communi-

OBITUARY David Francis Brown

David Francis Brown passed away peacefully August 13, 2012. He was born in Seattle to Lois Ohrner Brown and David Treadwell Brown on July 22, 1935. The family moved to Yakima when David was 7 and he was educated through the Yakima Schools including Yakima Valley College. He earned a BS degree in Chemistry from New Mexico School of Mines and a MS degree from WSU in Organic Chemistry. He met his wife of 49 years, Virginia, when they were both teaching at Yakima Valley College. They were soul mates and did everything together including backpacking for 150 miles in Glacier, Waterton and Yellowstone National Parks on their honeymoon (sole mates?). David earned a PhD in Plant Nutrition and Biochemistry from Utah State University and moved his family with two young sons, David and Mark, to New Orleans to begin a 20 year career with the US Department of Agriculture, Agricultural Research Service. His third son, Paul, was born in New Orleans. In 1980, David obtained a transfer to the USDA Research Station in Yakima where his parents still were living. After retiring he joined the faculty at Heritage College where he taught chemistry and mathematics. He found his true talent and passion in tutoring students in math and chemistry. He had the ability to continue to present the material in different ways until the student “got it.” He also obtained a secondary teaching certificate and was a substitute teacher after leaving Heritage College. The family spent many wonderful hours involved in skiing, hiking, backpacking, soccer, baseball, camping, bicycle touring and other activities. After retiring from USDA David had enough free time that he volunteered

ties, including the Christian Reformed Church, City of Refuge Christian Church, First Reformed Church, Grace by the Sea, Grace Community, Living Faith Christian Center, Living Word and Family Bible Church. North Whidbey Lions Club participated in their annual Stuff the Bus Project, which collects donations of school supplies for students. Volunteers ranged in age from 2 to 72. Walmart, Ace Hardware and Home Depot donated materials for various projects. Toiletry bags were put together for the homeless, weeds were pulled at CADA’s shelter, paint and stain were applied at Toddler Learning Center and South Whidbey Children’s Center, bark was distributed

at City of Oak Harbor parks, school supplies were gathered at Walmart for Stuff the Bus to benefit Opportunity Council and more. United Way’s mission is to “mobilize community resources to measurably improve people’s lives,” according to a press release. By hosting this Day of Caring, the community has an opportunity to band together and “Live United” by serving fellow community members. “With these tough economic times, we can all feel good about reaching out and touching the lives of our neighbors while making our community a better place to work and live,” said Cathy Niiro, executive director for United Way.

ObituarY David Francis Brown with Habitat for Humanity locally and traveled to many countries working on Habitat and missionary projects. Altogether he spent time in 31 different countries. He did his best to make friends wherever he went. In 2000 David and Virginia retired to Coupeville where they both were active in the Coupeville United Methodist Church, Coupeville Garden Club and Habitat for Humanity. They made two trips a year to work on international projects in China, Malaysia, Fiji, Ecuador, Chile and other countries until the last 2 years. At that time the heavy work was too much so they took organized international tours including Cuba, Honduras, Guatemala, Belize and the Panama Canal. David is survived by his wife, Virginia; three sons and their families, David Scott, wife Shirlene and daughters Kendra and Amanda, Mark Josef, wife Kristi and daughters Ashly and Abby and Paul Bradley and wife Olive; by his cousins, John Sprowl and wife Suzie, Doug King, Rick Raschick and wife Sally, and Mike Raschick; and all of their families and many wonderful friends. A Celebration of David’s Life will be held Sunday, Aug. 26, at 1:00 pm at the Coupeville United Methodist Church. A light lunch will follow at the church. If family and friends wish to honor David, donations may be made in his name to Coupeville United Methodist Church, Coupeville Garden Club, Habitat for Humanity of Island County or a charity of the donor’s choice.

Gravity Races bring out smiles By JIM WALLER Sports editor

If you want to put a smile on your face, check out the smiles on the faces of the children zipping down Barrington Avenue in soap box cars at 10 a.m. Saturday in the annual Gravity Races. The Rotary Club of North Whidbey Island Sunrise sponsors the event, and it is designed, according to spokesperson Penny Turvill, to “give kids with special needs a very special day of fun.” When Puget Power started the race 20 years ago, members of the Sunrise club helped out. Sunrise took over as primary sponsors when Puget Power merged with Washington Natural Gas and decided to no longer stage the event. Leo Finnegan, a Puget Power employee who built the cars and started the races, was given the cars and continues to provide them each year. As many as 30 special needs children have shown up in the past, Turvill said. Since preregistration is not required, she is not sure how many will be on hand Saturday. The kids should report at 9 a.m. to check in

sports in brief McCardle plays in U.S. Amateur Oak Harbor High School graduate Eric McCardle placed 140th out of 311 golfers at the United States Golf Association amateur championship tournament Aug. 13 to 19 at Cherry Hills Country Club outside of Denver. After a strong first round of an even-par 71, which put him in 51st, McCardle shot a seven-over 77 the second day for a 148 total. The two-day cut was 143 and included the top 51 golfers. McCardle’s first round included four birdies, 11 pars and only two bogeys and one double bogey. Day two, however, he was hurt by seven bogeys.

Pre-trained drivers join the children in the cars for each race. The 31-person Rotary Club of North Whidbey Island Sunrise receives plenty of volunteer help to make the gravity races run smoothly. The club is aided by the City of

Oak Harbor, and employees of the public works department donate time each year. The fire department brings by a fire truck for the kids to enjoy, and the police department uses a speed gun to let the children know how fast they are traveling down the hill. Oak Harbor High School cheerleaders line the street

and encourage the kids as they slide by. Turvill said a clown is also on hand to entertain the participants. “It is a really fun event for all of us,” Turvill said. “We would love to see more of the community come to watch and cheer on the kids.”

D’Almeida takes over girls soccer program By JIM WALLER Sports editor

Dan d’Almeida got caught up in Europe’s soccer-loving tidal wave when living in Germany, now he will pass along that passion as the new Coupeville High School girls soccer coach. D’Almeida takes over this fall for Mike Thornton who resigned to move to Texas. D’Almeida said his “catalyst for refocusing on soccer” was his three years living in Munich within hearing distance of Bayern Muenchen in the Olympic Stadium. He added, “During our final year there, Munich won the German Cup, the German League and the European Champions League. We were addicted to soccer as a family.” When d’Almeida moved back to California in 2002, he started coaching and both his children started playing. He received his soccer-coaching certificate there and has been coaching year round “for about seven or eight years.” He dabbled in soccer before the German experience, playing some in

Jim Waller/Whidbey News-Times

Dan d’Almeida high school in the San Francisco area, though his main focus was tennis, and in intramurals while attending Cornell. After being involved in the tech industry, d’Almeida switched careers, became a math teacher and moved to Whidbey Island when daughter Amanda, who is now a senior, was in the sixth grade. This will be d’Almeida’s fourth year with the Coupeville program. He served

as volunteer coach for two years and was the junior varsity coach last season. The past two years he has become a strong student of the game, learning from Thornton and listening in on the coaching Amanda received at the camps she attended. He talked to college coaches and gained a “good view of what is expected.” As for the Wolves, he said they have made “significant strides” defensively the past few years, now he would like to ratchet up the scoring with a counterattack offense. D’Almeida said to muster a counter attack the team will need to be in good physical condition: “It is not practical to say ‘we want to be this.’ We have many steps along the way to get there.” He hopes to focus on building the entire student-athlete and will encourage his athletes “to work hard on and off the field.” He noted that the first thing college coaches ask his daughter during the recruiting process is “What is your GPA?” D’Almeida and the Wolves open the season at 6 p.m. Thursday, Sept. 6, in Coupeville against Oak Harbor.

Christmas in July not so merry for Help House Donations down, costs increase By NATHAN WHALEN Staff reporter

A traditional summertime food drive on North Whidbey brought in less food and donations than anticipated during a time when the need remains high. North Whidbey Help House held its “Christmas in July” food drive and collected $15,000 in cash along with 9,400 food items. By comparison, last year’s version of the food drive collected $20,500 in cash and 11,560 food donations. Jean Wieman, executive director for the North Whidbey Help House, said she isn’t sure why fewer donations came in as opposed to 2011. It could be that the

Malloy CONTINUED FROM A1 Olympic spirit nearly tangible in the excited crowds. “It was crazy. There were thousands of people from all places wandering … it was just a really fun time,” Malloy said. “Being around the whole Olympic movement in general, it’s something you never forget.” Although often too busy to watch the other sports, Malloy did get the chance to see wrestling, the sport she really wanted to catch. She also enjoyed women’s soccer. Malloy said the Olympic experience didn’t change her as a person but “definitely a bunch of cool opportunities opened up for me.” Her future goals have soared to new heights. “I came really close to being in the semifinals and fighting for gold. I’m more motivated to go back to the Olympics and come back with a different colored medal next time.” Malloy does hope to qualify for the Olympics in 2016, but there are other judo competitions to test her skills in the meantime. The World Judo Championships are next year and Malloy won’t miss that for the world. She has fought in the World Championships four times and last year, she lost in the bronze medal match. “Ever since then, I’ve been

struggling economy is catching up to Whidbey Island. One thing is for certain, demand is staying consistent at the food bank. Over the past three months organizers put together 600 food baskets that fed between 1,500 and 1,600 people, Wieman said, noting that the food bank is seeing larger families coming in seeking help. The North Whidbey food bank conducts a summer food drive because it is normally a slow time of the year for donations. Wieman said people have been a bit more frugal with their donations. Somebody who would chip in $50 in previous years provided $25 this year, for example. The food bank also purchases meat, produce and items to cover any shortfalls may come up. Help House purchases food from local

grocery stores — Albertsons, Safeway and the Navy commissary — and from Pioneer Food Buying Service, which is a Seattle nonprofit that, among other things, sells canned goods and dry groceries to food banks around the region. The costs local food banks are paying for food has also been increasing over the year. Wieman said that through July 2012, North Whidbey Help House spent $38,000 on food. Through the same period last year, Help House had spent only $22,000 on food purchases. The situation is similar in Coupeville where Molly Hughes, who helps operate the Gifts from the Heart food bank in Coupeville, said she’s seen a 30 percent increase in the money paid for food. She said the cost of food has been

North Whidbey Help House Executive Director Jean Wieman said donations for the food bank have been struggling in recent weeks. increasing throughout the year, even before the drought in the Midwest started affecting food prices. She said the Central Whidbey food bank has benefited from cash donations even though their food donations have also been down. Like Help House, Gifts from the Heart also purchases food from local stores and

receives food from the local farmer’s market. Nearly a third of its food comes from Northwest Harvest, which supplies food banks throughout the state. To make a donation in Oak Harbor, stop by Help House at 1091 SE Hathaway St., in the old part of town about a block up from Pioneer Way. Hours are from 8 a.m. to 4

p.m. Monday, Wednesday, Thursday and Friday and from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. Tuesday Cash donations can also be mailed to the Help House address. Donations for Gifts from the Heart can be dropped off at Prairie Center Red Apple, the Coupeville Post Office and the Coupeville branch of Whidbey Island Bank.

‘It’s actually one of the weirdest sensations I’ve ever had. It’s the happiest you’ve ever been but you’re crying. At the same time, I felt disbelief, in shock that I had a medal and it hit me all at once. It was a really great feeling!’ -- Marti Malloy, Olympic medal winner

really motivated. The competition is pretty stiff there,” Malloy said. Malloy did earn bronze at the Grand Slam Paris this year, one of the most wellattended judo tournaments. “It’s all been building up till this point,” Malloy said. Malloy has devoted her life to judo. After watching her brothers study judo, she jumped in at age 6 and never let go. “It’s a really, really dynamic sport. There are so many ways to win,” Malloy said, the excitement in her voice mirroring her enthusiasm for the sport. “But I also like that in judo, anyone can win at any given moment.” Malloy made her first leap into fame at age 16 when she claimed a gold medal at the 2002 Rendez-Vous Canada. In

Marti Malloy and her family enjoyed a visit to Tower Bridge in London, all decked out for the Olympic Games. Malloy was decked out with a bronze medal she earned competing in judo at the Olympics 2005, she won a silver medal at the U.S. Open and became the only United States athlete to win gold at the Junior Pan American Championships. She studied under legendary judo instructors at San Jose University and graduated in 2010 with a bachelor

degree in advertising. Oak Harbor plans to celebrate its first Olympic medalist with a place of honor in the Oct. 18 Oak Harbor High School homecoming parade. “I’m really excited! We’re kind of working on the details right now,” Malloy said.

See Oak Harbor’s Olympian this fall Marti Malloy, an Oak Harbor High School alumnus who earned a bronze medal in judo during the Olympics earlier in the month, will return home in October. The bronze medalist will have a featured spot in the Oak Harbor High School homecoming parade that is scheduled for Thursday, Oct. 18. Malloy graduated from Oak Harbor High School in 2004.

Gaye Santos’ home features French-inspired items like the stove at right and the pot rack in the background. When researching the sea captain who built the home, she discovered that he often traveled to France and Santos paid tribute to this part of his life to enhance her kitchen. Santos’ kitchen also features her rolling pin collection, pictured upper left. Her 1859 kitchen consists of the rotisserie hanging in front of the fire, lower left, where she cooks chicken like in 1859.

Kitchen opens portal to the past Visit kitchens on Dream Kitchen Tour Saturday By REBECCA OLSON Staff reporter

The first step into Gaye Santos’ Coupeville home is a big one, taking visitors back in time to 1859 to a log home, chinking visible between the whitewashed logs inside and Penn Cove sparkling outside the wavy glass windows. By using the materials of the 1800s to restore the former sea captain’s home, everything about the house is authentic. Visitors can see for themselves when the home is featured on the American Association of University Women’s Dream

Kitchen Tour from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. Saturday, Aug. 25. Tickets to the Kitchen Tour cost $15 and offer visits to six Central Whidbey homes. The tour is AAUW’s major fundraiser and benefits annual AAUW scholarships, including four scholarships to graduating seniors from each Whidbey high school and the Whidbey Island campus of Skagit Valley College, two scholarships for advanced studies in the arts and one leadership conference scholarship to a Skagit Valley College freshman. Aside from the breathtaking restoration of the home, Santos’ home is unique because it features two kitchens: the 2012 kitchen and the 1859 kitchen. The 1859 kitchen is the original kitchen of the home: a rock fire-

place built by Chief Snakelum. An antique rotisserie hangs in front of the fire, often with an herb-stuffed chicken rotating before the flames. Santos winds the rotisserie with a key and it swivels the chicken, cooking it in about an hour, Santos said. The 2012 kitchen is a dream itself, adhering to history but decked out with state-of-the art appliances. Not a splinter of plywood can be found in the home. Since kitchens didn’t have upper cupboards in the 1800s, a long shelf runs along the wall, holding blue and white Transferware, decorated dishes made circa 1800. Santos’ collection of rolling pins — including a patterned one for making pasta — reside on honed soapstone countertops above the French stove. A

French-inspired pot rack sorts pots by size in an elongated triangular rack. A farm sink and candlelight chandelier complete the scene. At first glance, a refrigerator and freezer don’t appear present in the kitchen. But that’s Santos’ favorite part of the kitchen. The refrigerator and freezer are located in four under-counter, woodfronted drawers, retaining the integrity of the period. “I love to cook. I designed it to be functional as well as decorative,” said Santos, who owns 90 cookbooks and is a huge fan of Julia Child. She volunteers to cook fancy salmon dinners as auction items for the Boys and Girls and Soroptimist clubs. See kitchen, A12

Gaye Santos’ home, featured on the AAUW Dream Kitchen Tour, has an authentic 1859 kitchen, where a rotisserie hangs before a fireplace that Santos uses to cook chicken.

Windows — complete with old, wavy glass — look out on Penn Cove. It’s a perfect vacation spot, and Santos rents rooms out through the website Airbnb. The home is rented out nearly every weekend. The location was also chosen by NBC for filming. In Santos’ home, Kitchen Tour visitors won’t be able to contain themselves to just the kitchen. The maple floors were put down by hand and the log walls were chinked by hand using the original recipe of horsehair, sand, cement and lime. Santos and Todd Heppner did the majority of the work themselves. An antique grandfather clock stands beside the windows, a relic similar to the many treasures a sea captain of the 1800s would have owned. Outside, a 100-yearold tobacco barn adorned with wagon wheel hub lights sits beside a vegetable gar-

den, fruit trees and chicken coop with a water view. “So you could survive here,” Santos said. And that’s just how she likes it because that’s how it was for Capt. James Henry Smith, who passed the home to his daughter, Maude Fullington, who later passed it to her daughter, Mary Fullington. Santos loves the history. She tried to imagine coming to the island on a ship with no grocery stores or amenities. “You took your chicken and you cooked it on your fireplace,” Santos laughed. “I like to think that someday, someone else will live here long after I’m gone and wonder how I lived,” Santos said. Santos has restored 24 houses total. “I like everything old. I like antiques, always have,” Santos said, adding that most of her belongings are period to the house and she even decorates her Christmas tree with antique Victorian ornaments. “I love the history of it and I love the fact that someone lived here before me and

the history of that.” Santos’ love of restoration grew from learning she could fix just about anything. Her first job was for a “tyrant” dentist and one day, he demanded she fix the raising and lowering mechanism on the patient chair, Santos said. Without a clue of what to do, Santos rummaged around until it worked. “It taught me somehow I could do anything and everything,” Santos said. By asking questions and watching others, she learned how to do her own plumbing and more. “I could do anything. I could lay tile, I could finish

floors,” Santos said. Now, her hard work has paid off with wonderful reviews from visitors and guests, and opportunities to give back to her community. Santos said she enjoys loaning her house to any charitable group with a good cause and AAUW is that. “And it’s a great bunch of women as well,” Santos said. Whidbey AAUW is a branch of the national group of women focusing on enabling young women to reach their potential as thoughtful, educated and caring contributors to society.

Whidbey Island Fair wrap up is better than fair By NEWS-TIMES STAFF

Justin Burnett / Whidbey News-Times

Oak Harbor resident Sarah Felger makes her way down the novice climbing pole after reaching the summit, about 50 feet off the ground at the Whidbey Island Area Fair in Langley.

The Whidbey Island Fair ended Sunday with the sun breaking through as the final acts took to the Eva Mae Gabelein Midway Stage. The weekend was cooler than predicted after a hot fair opening on Thursday and near-sweltering weather on Friday. But temperatures stayed warm and nary a raindrop fell to dampen the spirits of any creature, human or otherwise. While throngs attended for fun, many didn’t forget the needier members of the island community. “Thursday started very well with the half-price admission food drive, which added 1,109 pounds of food to the Good Cheer Food Bank,” said volunteer Shawn Nowlin. This far exceeds the take in 2011. How much was collected during the four days from the carnival pre-sale redemption has not yet been determined. “The heat drove families home in the afternoon while the veggie critters melted like the Wicked Witch, and we never recovered,” said Sandey Brandon, fair manager, speaking of the first two fair days. The forecast for Friday must have kept a lot of people home, Brandon theorized, “so going into the weekend, we were way down at the gate and food booths. Everyone was wondering if the fair would ‘happen’.” The fair’s fortunes turned quickly, however. Brandon described Saturday as a “remarkable recovery that generated the largest singleday gate we have had in at least 20 years.” Even with significant discounts for military, the Les Schwab discounts and Facebook coupons, gate

It’s hard to make up in one day, though, for two slower days,” Brandon noted. “We had a powerful number of youngsters who participated in our passport to adventure program,” Brandon said. “Due to our name change, I ordered 1,500 passports, we ran out Friday afternoon and wound up using leftover Island County Fair ones until we could get another emergency print run of 500. We also ran out of this year’s prizes and had to use leftovers from last year, so that was a hit.” The Timebenders, a band that plays Beatles and other old tunes, has become a Whidbey Island Fair staple with fans and this year was no exception. “The Timebenders had an absolutely magnificent audi-

ence Saturday night and kept the crowd present and dancing following a beautiful sunset,” Brandon said. Sunday was another “stellar day,” as Brandon recalls. “A perfect storm of weather kept it cooler, with intermittent sunshine and everywhere I went, a sea of smiling faces.” The fair’s record of never permanently losing a parent was upheld in 2012. “All lost parents were reunited with their offspring,” Brandon said. Among event highlights, Kelly Cammermeyer, the fair’s “office diva,” in Brandon’s words, climbed to the novice line in the pole climb and was barely beaten by Virginia Keck. Jackie Vannice as Lady Gaga won the adult alpaca showmanship contest handsdown. The roasted corn supply ran out midday, so fairgoers made a run for clam chowder in a bread bowl and other favorite fair fare. “The animal exodus went smoothly for a change, and everyone got out of Dodge before sunset,” Brandon said, describing the scene Sunday evening.

In the lost-n-found division, fair representatives were able to hand four wallets with cash and credit cards intact back to their rightful owners (an unusual situation), which elicited a positive comment from Ann Spink on Facebook about her experience. “Likewise, the majority of lost cell phones were reclaimed by happy people who have their entire lives contained therein yet don’t chain them to their bodies,” Brandon said. “We must have had more honest folks at this year’s fair than is the norm, which is a very good thing since Sheriff Mark Brown called to say, ‘sorry, won’t be there this year.’” Langley Police Chief Randy Heston showed up daily and walked through, stopping in the office for an icy bottle of water and a chat about how things were going. Former Langley Mayor Neil Colburn described the fair experience for many with this Facebook comment: “We had the perfect fair experience. We arrived, ate, said ‘hi!’ to friends, we left. Nice to see new faces. Loved the ‘Mayor’ shuttle.” A golf cart, now legal on Langley roads, shuttled people about town. Adding to the revenue was the popularity of the new Whidbey Island Fair tie-dye t-shirts, designed by Brandon, which sold out. “Everyone simply loved them except some old guys,” she said. Revenue figures the day after the fair were still being tabulated, with only the food revenue totally tallied. “At the end of the fair, we were only down 3.14 percent over last year, which was an exceptional year. I expect the gates report will show approximately the same percentage decrease,” Brandon said.
