Records fall during Adventure Swim BY BEN WATANABE Staff reporter

LANGLEY — The Whidbey Adventure Swim course records only lasted one year. Granted, the little open water race is only in its second year. That mattered little to Scott Lautman, a Burien resident, who finished the 2.4-mile course in record-setting fashion on Sept. 8 just off Langley’s shores. “It’s there to be broken,” said Lautman, 59, of his 51:40 record. He was joined by the women’s record-setter, Zena Courtney, in the

Olympia resident, set the women’s 1.2-mile time at 31:51. The three record-setters were joined by 25 other open water racers from across Western Washington this past Saturday. About as many people competed last year as in this year’s Whidbey Adventure Swim. More people swam the full course this year, with 14 in the 2.4-mile race and 13 finishers in the half course. Only one swimmer who registered did not swim the full course, whereas

Turtle heist was a shell of a crime By JUSTIN BURNETT

s tortoise heists go, it was nearly perfect. They came in as a pair just before closing. One distracted the clerk and, when the coast was clear, the other made the grab. The operation appeared planned down to the last detail and was executed without flaw. The alleged tortoise-nappers overlooked just one thing: Critters & Co. Pet Center in Clinton has security cameras. Not only was the entire caper caught on tape, but store owners decided to teach the thieves a lesson by posting the video online for all the world to see. Doh! “It’s the talk of the community,” said store manager Debbie Wilkie, with a proud smile. “I can’t go anywhere without being hit up about what happened to the tortoises.” The three missing reptiles, each about three months old and about three inches in diameter, are believed to have been taken about two weeks ago on Aug. 29. Store clerks say they remember seeing them in their cage that afternoon shortly before closing up shop at 6 p.m. “They were there when I left, I thought,” said Jessica Dunn, the daughter of the shop’s owners.

Jessica Dunn and Debbie Wilkie pose for a picture with three turtles at Critters & Co. Pet Center in Clinton. The turtles are similar to the three tortoises that were stolen from the pet shop late last month. She was woken the next day by her mother asking, “Where are the tortoises?” The mystery was soon solved by the store’s security recording. It showed a man and woman who appeared to be working together to steal the tortoises from their cage at the front of the store about 10 minutes before closing. The man asked one of two store clerks to help him with feeder fish in the back while his alleged accomplice, taking a quick look around to be sure Dunn was also busy with other customers, swiped

the reptiles and made for the door. “He did the sidetracking and she did the taking,” Wilkie said. According to Detective Ed Wallace, spokesman for the Island County Sheriff’s Of fice, investigators reviewed the tape and made several attempts to contact the couple but were unsuccessful. Officers ended up mailing them criminal citations, which requires both to show up before a judge in Island County District Court.

Failure to appear would result in a warrant for their arrest. Although the tortoises have not been recovered, Wallace said the investigation is all but over. Valued at $100 apiece, the couple can’t be charged with anything more than a misdemeanor crime as felony theft starts at $750. “The bottom line is this is shoplifting,” Wallace said. “With our budget the way it is... I know people down there were upset they weren’t arrested and taken

to jail but our jail is full of felons.” The lack of action by law enforcement has been frustrating for store staff. Shoplifting is a real problem and merchants calling police is one of the few actions they can take to fight back. “You almost feel stuck, like you can’t do anything,” Wilkie said. Posting the video online, www.facebook.com/critters. petcenter, was their attempt to take a more aggressive approach toward shoplifters and let would be offenders know it will not be tolerated. So far it’s had exactly the effect they had hoped for. The community is abuzz over the incident and other merchants have been alerted to the alleged shoplifters, Wilkie said. People have gotten so fired up that some have even called in to report the couple’s whereabouts in the hopes they might be apprehended. “People came in just livid mad,” Wilkie said. It’s an inventive and drastic step, but one of the only ones they have. The total dollar value of the crime may not be much when it comes to the law, but it’s a big hit for a tiny mom-and-pop pet shop. “We’re such a small business, $300 is something,” Dunn said.

Charter schools battle skips SW BY BEN WATANABE Staff reporter

Washington state voters will have a fourth chance to cast their yeas and nays for a public charter school initiative this November. The million-dollar battle has little support from Island County, however, and for good reason. Charter schools are not likely to find their way to Whidbey Island any time soon, even if the measure is passed. The scaled-down version of the public charter school measure will allow up to 40 such schools in the state. Leaders in the South Whidbey School District think their problems of enrollment decline and funding decrease will likely keep any charter groups away from the South End. “I would be very surprised if it did (impact the school district),” said Fred O’Neal, South Whidbey School Board member and its legislative representative. “We have a declining student enrollment as it is.” “The problem on South Whidbey is making it (charter schools) financially viable. There just aren’t enough students.” And if voters put their money where their mouths are, then the $0 contributed to either the “for” or “against” campaigns regarding Initiative 1240 says Island County voters don’t care. Why should they? A report by the National Alliance for Public Charter Schools shows that rural area students are one of the smallest populations to attend charter schools, around 15 percent nationally and 37 percent in Oregon. “It’s going to be fairly focused and limited in scope,” O’Neal said of I-1240. “It seems that the type of See Charter, A8

wrote. “Take the issue up the proper channels.” What really seemed to upset people the most was the final line of Haglund’s letter: “Listen up, Navy: We pay taxes here. I suspect you don’t. We aren’t your guests. In reality, you are ours.” The noise from Navy aircraft is an issue that has generated a lot of controversy over the years, though never at this level. Just last month, the Island County commissioners’ hearing room was packed with people who were upset about jet noise. Haglund said she turned

Deputies with the Island County Sheriff’s Office are investigating the harassment of an elderly Coupeville woman who wrote a letter to the editor that spawned a controversy. Deputy Chris Garden said the letter writer, Caralyn Haglund, was in the sheriff’s office crying because of continuous harassing phone calls and cars driving by her home since the letter was published in the Whidbey News-Times on Sept. 5. Garden said the behavior is criminal harassment. He urges people to refrain from calling or going to the woman’s house. “People should grow up and be mature about this kind of thing,” he said. “It’s OK for people to have a difference of opinion.” Haglund said the situation has been a nightmare for her and her husband. After the letter was published, she received harassing phone calls, day and night, until she was forced to turn off her phone. She’s getting a new number because she needs to stay in touch with her sister, who is dying. “My husband keeps watch during the night. We don’t get any sleep and we are just a wreck,” she said. “This is costing me my health.” A Navy spokesperson said it’s premature for the leadership at Whidbey Island Naval Air Station to comment on the controversy. “The local authorities have the lead on this matter and the Navy will provide assistance where needed with their

investigation,” spokeswoman Kim Martin said in a written statement. Haglund’s letter, “Navy should act like our guests,” has definitely touched a nerve in the North Whidbey community. The letter generated more than 300 comments overnight after it was posted on the Whidbey NewsTimes website. The publisher of the Whidbey News-Times closed the comments because of excessive abuse of the terms of use. The majority of the comments expressed anger at Haglund for writing the letter, which criticized the Navy for jet noise, and at the paper for printing it. Many resorted to swearing and name calling. Several people posted Haglund’s name and address. Others implied threats. A person who identified himself as Jacob Martin, IFT for the PCs in the U.S. Navy, wrote, “I personally hope you are raped in your sleep.” On the other hand, there were plenty of civil, intelligent comments. “As I can empathize with you about the noise level, I would have to say that we have not forgotten who the island ‘belongs’ to. I am pretty sure it ‘belongs’ to the great state of Washington, which in turn belongs to the United States of America, which happens to pay for those bothersome jets,” Joseph Richter

SCHOOLS Board discusses maintenance levy There is a lot of work to be done around the South Whidbey School District. The problem is, there may not be enough money for all of it. The South Whidbey School Board will discuss a possible levy increase request to pay for about 30 projects across the district’s three schools and other district facilities at tonight’s meeting. Some of the maintenance issues included technology upgrades and replacements, security cameras, painting, track resurfacing

at the high school and middle school, carpeting at Langley Middle School and roof and siding fixes at South Whidbey Elementary School. The school board will also review creating a long-range planning committee. The committee was proposed by District Superintendent Jo Moccia to review programs and services for students, enrollment trends, finances and facilities evaluations. Moccia will be empowered to choose the committee’s 20 members, which include board members, district staff, teachers and other school employees, as well as community members, students and recent graduates. The meeting begins at

6:30 p.m. tonight at the board room at the South Whidbey Primary Campus, 5476 S. Maxwelton Road.

LANGLEY Skateboarding passes available The Langley City Council has formally adopted rules that will temporarily permit the use of skateboards in residential areas of town. The council voted unanimously to approve the ordinance package Tuesday at City Hall. They essentially lift what had been a city-wide ban on skateboards, roller skates or any other human-pow-

ered devices in the city. Bicycles were not included in the rule changes as they have always been allowed in all parts of the city. The lifted ban, which still prohibits the use of skateboards in commercial areas, is only temporary. The council’s decision specifies a one-year trial period; if problems occur during that time the council may choose not to make them permanent in 2013. The trial period was a concession from council members worried about public safety. A strong recommendation for the use of helmets and other safety gear was also included in the temporary ordinance.

Letters Elections

Price Johnson has experience To the editor: I am writing on behalf of the candidacy of Helen Price Johnson for re-election for District 1 Island county commissioner. Helen is knowledgeable, caring, a good listener with an open mind on issues, and someone who is able to make tough decisions when required. Being a good county commissioner requires the ability to juggle numerous issues at the same time while applying clear thinking and fair consideration to all sides. Helen has these abilities. She has honed these skills over her years as a businessperson, as a community volunteer, as a South Whidbey School District school board member, and in her first term as an Island County Commissioner. Helen had to address an Island County budget situation over the past few years that few people would have had the courage or aptitude to tackle. Each of the last four years have brought increasingly difficult program priority issues that have created painful cuts in all county agencies, including public safety and prosecution of offenders. This is no popularity contest. With Helen’s leadership, the county balances its budget each year and seeks creative ways to make up for less revenues and keep priority programs and services alive. What more can we ask from a county commissioner? We need a person who is hard working, a good listener and open-minded when it comes to making decisions. These are the characteristics that define Helen. I hope all of you will join me in voting for Helen Price Johnson for District 1 Island County Commissioner. Jack Lynch Clinton

GOP empty on content To the editor: I have watched these political conventions since I was a kid (LBJ & Goldwater). I cannot remember one as mendacious, banal, superficial and down right empty of any content as this one was. (That includes the conventions for Reagan, Dole and even Mondale!) Stunning lies and cornball sloganeering were the high points. Why have them at all? To “introduce the candidates to the nation?” Oh please! Anyone under 30 probably doesn’t know that these party conventions used to be about voting on the party’s candidates and putting together the “planks” of their “platform” that they would run their candidates on. They used to make speeches about the dif-

ferent candidates and speeches for or against different positions that they wanted included or stripped from the party platform. They used to argue, bargain, form coalitions and make heated deals to get things in or out of the platform or to win over delegates. They used to vote on platform “planks.” They famously used to roll call state after state for the delegates to give their votes and they were tabulated until one of the candidates got the nomination. Occasionally there were even “upsets” and... yes, surprises. What what was this Republican thing that went down in Tampa? At this convention they never gave any specific information about just how they were going to do anything. They couldn’t because they never stated anything that they intended to do, with the exception of three things! Do away with Obamacare. Cut taxes on businesses (translation: corporations) and reduce regulations on businesses (again read: corporations). They never gave any specifics about their platform or what they were running on. Nothing specific about foreign policy. Nothing specific offered about health care. Nothing at all about bringing jobs back into the country.

We got an infomercial for Bain Capital and one for the Olympics with something about 9/11 mixed in. We got the jumbled and tasteless musings of a big Hollywood star (who cares?).

GO SHOPPING! Ever notice how you feel good browsing through a full-service department store? Mannequins are impeccably dressed with the layered look. Belt buckles are polished brass and pants are a perfect, tailored fit. Colors are coordinated, and everyone in the “group” has a smile as they sit motionless in a casual setting. The price is usually full retail. Selling a home parallels that department store situation. You can take the discount store approach, offering your home “as-is” at below market prices, or you can merchandise it properly and attract a full retail purchaser. Merchandising begins with a walk-through of your home to uncover needed repairs and other improvements. Your agent, playing the role of the interested buyer, makes a list of items in need of attention, then asks you to complete them before showing the home to prospects. Merchandising involves more than repairs, though. It sets the stage for buyers, making them feel at home. From fresh flowers to the dining table set for a king’s banquet, every room in the house is “staged” for maximum buyer appeal. Your agent will explain details such as proper lighting, furniture arrangement, and the absence of pets. Complete information about the home should be displayed, along with a property profile buyers can take with them. Why not merchandise your home when you sell? It can bring ready buyers, eager to pay for the image you create.

Cedar Park rushers pound South Whidbey in first loss BY BEN WATANABE Staff reporter

LANGLEY — Cedar Park proved it could run. South Whidbey proved it could throw. The football pendulum ultimately favored the Eagles’ persistent ground-and-pound offense over the Falcons’ airit-out options in a 35-21 road win. “We competed,” said Falcon co-head coach Andy Davis. “A couple turnovers and it’s a different story.” South Whidbey relied on a couple of timely turnovers in the first half to tie the game 21-21. Cedar Park played exactly how South Whidbey’s coaches anticipated, with a run-heavy attack that favored counters to disguise which running back had the ball. “Their blocking schemes were really well done,” said Falcon senior Pat Monell, a defensive lineman and running back. “They’re a real physical team, big kids. They have that offense down to precision, very little mistakes.” The game was a see-saw early. South Whidbey kept Cedar Park from getting a first down in Falcon territory on its opening drive. Then the Falcons charged downfield with Monell, senior fullback Aaron Curfman and junior quarterback Nick French leading the way. Curfman ran for a first down on a punt fake that set up a French touchdown run and South Whidbey’s only lead. And it did not last long. Cedar Park junior Leif Wildon returned the following kickoff 80 yards for a tying touchdown, then he kicked in the extra point kick. In the second quarter, French hit junior receiver Nick Bennett with a deep pass. The wideout slipped

On the other side, the Eagles stifled the Falcon offense and didn’t allow a point in the final two quarters, while scoring two more times on runs by junior Andrew Rickman. The Eagles’ other scorers were

defense focused on French and junior receiver Nick Bennett. “Kale’s a huge asset,” French said. “Really, we’ve only got three (receivers) that have been in a varsity game with experience.” Bennett felt the defense hone in on him. During kickoffs, Cedar Park’s coaches told kicker Wildon to kick away from Bennett. “At the beginning of the game I was open a lot,” Bennett said. “Then they were all pointing at me saying, ‘Guard No. 2.’” Cedar Park scored late in the third quarter and late in the final period to close out the game.

environments they’re talking about are better suited for bigger schools.” Last year, District Superintendent Jo Moccia had district staff review U.S. Census data. She and the school board wanted to know if they were losing students to transfer, or if there were less students living on South Whidbey. They found a handful of students within the school district’s boundaries from Greenbank to Clinton transferred to other districts like Mukilteo, Coupeville or Oak Harbor. Some were home schooled, and others attended online school. But, compared to 10 years ago, there were just less school-age children living on South Whidbey. O’Neal, who has pushed for South Whidbey to aggressively seek new education techniques, rejected the idea that larger school districts across the ferry route could pull students from the South End. “It’s just so darned inconvenient and expensive to go to the other side,” O’Neal said. Money has flowed for the public charter school fight.

Harvest fun and learning at Whidbey Island farms By Betty Freeman Staff Reporter

“Farming feeds my soul,” says Linda Bartlett, co-owner with Valerie Reuther of Rosehip Farm near Coupeville. Bartlett and 17 other Island farmers share some of that soul food along with techniques for growing real food at the free, 7th annual Whidbey Island Farm Tour, 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. Sept. 15-16. The 2012 Farm Tour brochure is your guide to a weekend of agricultural fun and learning. Pick one up at local libraries, Chambers of Commerce, visitor centers, farm and garden stores, or download it from the official Farm Tour website, www.whidbeyfarmtour.com. The brochure contains a map of the Island with directions to each farm and details of each farm’s products. “This year we’re really encouraging farmers to offer multiple activities on their farms, from scavenger hunts for kids to educational opportunities for learning the ‘how-to’ of good farming practices,” said Sarah Cassat of the Whidbey Island Conservation District and spokesperson for the 2012 Farm Tour.

Cassat said local farmers have a goal of “showing what happens when produce, meat or fibers come from the farm, and how farmers can produce value-added products for steadier, year-round income.” Several farms offer hayrides or

self-guided tours of their operations and most will offer demonstrations or tutorials for folks wanting to learn new farming skills. “Greenbank Farm will have multiple learning stations, including a self-guided tour of their Community Supported Agriculture farm and new rain garden and a family scavenger hunt,” Cassat said. Rosehip Farm will showcase its sustainable farming practices that

utilize hand tools over tractor use. “The educational opportunity of the Farm Tour is important to us. We want to show what a smallscale grower can do and give concrete ideas to home gardeners,” Bartlett said. Like many local farmers, Bartlett has a high standard for growing nutrient-rich food without chemicals. “We strive to exclude pests by using crop covers, aim for good crop rotation, and use soil building techniques instead of using even allowable chemical solutions,” Bartlett said. Wilbur and Julieanna Purdue of Prairie Bottom Farm in Coupeville feed 37 local families through their Community Supported Agriculture (CSA) farm, and hope to educate more people about their weekly produce-providing service. Their lucky CSA customers not only get several pounds of seasonal vegetables every week, but they can also pick flowers and herbs at the farm, and have a chance to buy their Thanksgiving turkeys from the farm’s free-range flock. “We want to educate people about how small family farms can grow a variety of crops sustainably, and to show how to build up a farm in small increments without going into debt, such as our barn project-in-progress,” said Wilbur Purdue, pointing proudly to his new barn, where bean-thrashing

will be demonstrated on the Farm Tour. In the near future, the Purdues hope to finish a produce-washing room and a cooler room for veggie storage to the barn. Both Prairie Bottom and Rosehip Farms are CSAs, have booths at the Coupeville Farmer’s Market and provide produce to local restaurants through fellow farmer Georgie Smith’s distribution service. “Our farm community is collaborative,” Bartlett said. “Not only is the community supportive of farms through buying at the markets and farm stands and eating at restaurants that serve locally-grown food, but the farmers collaborate with and buy from one another.” Many farmers on the tour work with one another year-round, said Bartlett. For example, Rosehip Farm’s store sells bio-dynamicallygrown grains such as kamut, barley and spring wheat from local growers. Both Rosehip and Prairie Bottom farms will sell potatoes and Rockwell beans from Willowood Farm during the Farm Tour. “We want people to know what’s available right here in their own backyard,” said Purdue, surveying his productive acreage. “We farmers are happy to be a part of feeding local families and to see children coming to know a farming way of life,” Bartlett said.

OBITUARY

Ethel Waters

Ethel Waters

Always in character, Ethel Waters left this earth with grace, dignity, and on her own terms, dying peacefully at her daughter and son-in-law’s home on Saturday, Sept. 1, 2012. Born on July 1, 1921 in Aintree, England, Ethel came to the United States with her parents when she was eight years old. Her father was a former choirmaster and she grew up surrounded by music. She studied ballet and performed in San Francisco. She wrote about having had her fill of sausage rolls, lemon tarts, and English humor.

Her interaction with us was laced with that humor, still present until the end of her life. A little bit of a rascal, shortly before she passed, she told her daughter, “I’m resting and drinking ‘OldFashioneds’ and then I’m going dancing.” Ethel was preceded in death by her husband of almost 70-years, Bob Waters. For over 30 of those years they lived on Whidbey Island. When Ethel retired from Santa Barbara City Schools as Executive Asst to the Superintendent, they built their dream home (green before its time) by a pond in Clinton and planted an amazing garden, which this formerly big city girl learned to manage and preserve all it produced. After they no longer could care for its sprawling acres and resourceconsuming repairs, they sold the home and moved to the “big” city of Langley. The garden’s bounty continued to be enjoyed at the new owner’s Italian restaurant. Bob also built her a sewing room, a sunroom, and a pantry with ample counters to support the many arts and craft projects she learned

or revived after moving to the Northwest. Many of her crafts, including beautiful tea cozy sets she labored over last Christmas, were donated to the church and other fund raising events. Always active in retirement, when she came to the Island, she organized the Silver Sneakers exercise program through Skagit Community College. Many of her new Island acquaintances joined the program, forging friendship bonds that continued over the next twenty-six years. Bob and Ethel both had beautiful voices. A friend recently shared that when they joined St. Augustine’s they asked if the church could use a couple of “old hacks” in the choir. They then proceeded to change the quality of music enjoyed by the congregation and took the choir to a new performance level. Ethel also joined the Langley Community Club as historian and treasurer for many years. She saved the club from disbanding in the late nineties by orchestrating a change in Board leadership. Because of her initiatives the club survived, the treasury is sound, and projects active.

Ethel became known as the “Queen” of SHIBAs, the Statewide Health Insurance Benefits Advisor program she helped establish in Island Co, after having been introduced to the program in CA. Initially she was the only advisor trained to consult with folks in South Whidbey and helped many who were confused by continuous changes to Medicare benefits. As the program extended to all types of insurance programs and expanded to include people of all ages, she recruited and trained additional SHIBAs. She received a Merit Award for Exceptional Volunteerism from Medicare and was honored by CMS and WA groups, including a statewide nomination for volunteer of the year and Langley’s Hometown Hero Award. She published a monthly article in the Senior Center Newsletter, retiring from that job at age 86. Ethel loved to connect people from very disparate backgrounds and interests and help ease their pain and improve their lives. She wrote beautifully and created poetry for the family and close friends. She recently confided that due to finan-

cial hardship when her father died, she had to turn down a scholarship from Stanford in creative writing. She loved to entertain and play games, including cribbage, pinochle, and most card and domino games. A card group evolved and met monthly for many years. A few weeks ago she taught the priests of St. Augustine to play a domino game called Chicken Feet. They loved it and taught their friends. Had she lived longer she might have converted the entire congregation! She volunteered and was for many years the treasurer of Episcopalian Church Women (ECW). Everyone who came in contact with Ethel, experienced her differently, however all agree she was exceptionally caring and nice. The woman who helped care for her these past few weeks described her as the “essence of loveliness” and was grateful to have been a short part of her life. We all learned from her. One granddaughter recalls the extraordinary range of her curious mind and creative spirit, having been the recipient of her endless patience while learning sewing, quilting,

card games, flower drying and arrangements. Another recalls fondly, learning to cook chocolate pudding pie. Ethel was preceded in death by her husband, Bob and son, Bob Jr. and leaves two daughters, Kathryn Stevens (Tucker) and Ginger Waters (Robbie Rath), a blended family of grand children and great grandchildren, many of whom got to visit with her this summer. She will be dearly missed by her family and all of those whose lives she touched. Services will be held Sept, 14, 2012 at 3:00 PM at St, Augustine’s in-the-Woods, 5217 So. Honeymoon Bay Road, Freeland, WA 98249. In lieu of flowers, Ethel asks that donations be sent to any of the following: St. Augustine’s Building Fund or Bayview Senior Center, 14594 SR 525, Langley, WA, 98260 or SnoIsle Libraries Foundation designated for Langley Library Branch and mailed to 104 2nd St., Langley, WA 98260.

Head to the Clyde in downtown Langley from 1 to 3 p.m. to see a compilation of historical videos, a slideshow and a video of the performances done at the theater over the years created by Blake Willeford, who owns the theater with his wife, Lynn Willeford. Western Heroes will provide music for a street dance from 3 to 4:30 p.m., in front of the Clyde. Free pop and popcorn are provided — as long as you get out and dance, Blake said. After the dance at 5 and 7:30 p.m., the Clyde will show its regular movies.

“All Clyde patrons are invited,” Lynn said. Norman and Hazel Clyde built the theater in 1937 at the height of the Great Depression. Blake bought it in 1972, and he and Lynn said they plan to keep managing the Clyde until they die, when their son, Brook, will take over. “So it’s been like a front row seat to the community for years, from the days when Hazel Clyde used to drive around picking up kids for the Saturday matinee all over the island,” Lynn said, adding that now, the Willefords are seeing second and even third generations patronize the theater. “We kind of delight in telling kids how their parents acted at the movies in the old days,” Lynn laughed. But interacting with today’s youths is no laughing matter for the Willefords. They take responsibility for teaching youths how to behave in the community by pulling them aside and talking to those who need it, Blake said, adding that they even befriend many of the attention-hungry youths. “We’ve always wanted it to be a part of the community,” Blake said of the Clyde. They try to choose movies that will please Langley’s unique audience. “It’s an eclectic community so we need to have an eclectic program,” Lynn said, adding that when she hears an equal number of complaints that the Clyde shows too many independent movies or too many Hollywood

movies, she knows they’re doing just right. The Clyde shows 110 to 120 movies per year. “So multiply that by 40 years and that’s how many movies Blake and I have seen,” Lynn laughed. She and Blake met after Blake purchased the theater and Lynn worked there as a sweeper. She “swept” her way to the top, Blake joked. At the entrance to the theater is the snack stand, gleaming with shiny candy wrappers and smelling of popcorn. “We’re pretty sure this is the highest grossing per square foot place in Langley,” Blake laughed, gesturing at the 3 feet-by-3 feet snack stand.

Magic Change Jar A special part of the stand is the Magic Change Jar, where patrons can make their change magically multiply for good causes. The Willefords match the amount of change in the jar, and Island Athletic Club and Lindsay Communica tions also match the money, then the amount is donated to a community cause. The current recipient is the Whidbey Camano Land Trust. They recently donated $1,300 to the Readiness to Learn Foundation’s Back-to-School drive. The Clyde has a long history of community service. It raised $8,600 in one night for victims of Hurricane Katrina and raised

$16,000 for phone cards for soldiers in Iraq at the beginning of the war. “It’s not like we’re doing anything unusual for here,” Lynn said, adding that the community is very generous and members often volunteer to match donations. What makes the Willefords unique is all the fun they have helping their community. Recently, they held a ladies night at the Clyde and showed the movie “Magic Mike.” As a rare treat, the women were allowed to “hoot and holler” during the film, Lynn said. Then she sent Blake around the theater with the Magic Change Jar for donations. Lynn told them that since they couldn’t give bills to the movie’s starring actor Matthew McConaughey, they could put it in the jar for a good cause. “We had women all over the theater waving money in the air,” Lynn laughed. In 10 minutes, they collected a few hundred dollars — mostly in ones, Lynn said. Another can also holds the history of the Clyde. Now covered in rubber bands, the old can that was originally used to collect ticket earnings is still in use. “We don’t know how much money went through that can…. It got misplaced the other night and we cared less about the money than about the can,” Blake said. The theater staff has also remained the See clyde, A13

same for years. Kären Grossman has been selling tickets every Thursday night for the past 35 years with free popcorn and movies as her pay. “All the ticket sellers just do it for the love of it,” Grossman said, adding that she’s done this for longer than anything else in her life and has always loved the community aspect. With fond memories too numerous to count, Grossman picked one Halloween as her favorite moment. Thirty years ago, when Halloween would fall on a work night, Grossman said she loved it “because so many people in the town at that time would get dressed up, whether they were going to the Clyde or going to the Doghouse to play pool.” The only employee who’s been at the Clyde longer than Grossman is

projectionist and documentarian Mark Dworkin, who has worked there for 40 years.

Changes

The theater has seen many improvements over the years, from new drapery in the 1980s to seismic retrofitting in the 1990s. When the Willefords replaced the chairs and offered the old ones to the community, “people were fighting over the chairs,” Lynn said. A few old rows of Clyde chairs can still be seen around Langley. The room that has seen the hugest changes is the projection room. The Willefords funded the weighty cost of switching from film to digital in December 2011. Lynn recalled giving away pieces of film as bookmarks and community members’ excitement as they held pieces to the light in search of a strip with George Clooney or a cartoon. Now, the empty reels sit on the stage behind

City adopts parking rule changes, hopes for new business boom By JUSTIN BURNETT Staff reporter

Parking-related costs for new and existing businesses in Langley’s Central Business District got a whole lot cheaper last week. The City Council Tuesday voted to adopt what officials have dubbed “sweeping changes” to the city’s existing parking rules in the hopes of

supporting local businesses, promoting infill development and attracting new commercial interests to the Village by the Sea. Mayor Larry Kwarsick said the rule changes are a departure from the norm, especially for small communities, which commonly struggle with a lack of parking in downtown areas. “This is an outside of the

box approach to give small projects … an opportunity to come into the community,” Kwarsick said. The changes eliminate the parking requirement for each business up to 5,000 square feet, though hotels, motels and marinas are exempt as they require on-site parking in order to function. Also discarded was a hefty fee charged to business

that couldn’t meet the city’s required number of parking spaces. For each space it couldn’t provide, merchants had to pay the city $5,000. City officials champion the reduced regulation as offering greater flexibility for off-site parking agreements between businesses and landowners. It allows the city to also waive all or part of the parking requirement based
