BY JUSTIN BURNETT Staff reporter

ith an eye on economic development, Langley hopes to team up with the Port of South Whidbey in an effort to increase foot traffic on the Clinton-to-Mukilteo ferry route. On Monday, the Langley City Council unanimously green-lighted Mayor Larry Kwarsick’s request to partner with the port in the pursuit of a state grant to fund a multi-million dollar, 65-car park and ride in Mukilteo. It would also fund a one-year pilot program for Sunday bus service between the city and the Clinton ferry dock. The idea is relatively simple: increase the transportation possibilities for commuters and visitors alike to bolster the island’s economy. Having a place to park in Mukilteo would open up more viable off-island employment opportunities for residents and tourism on South Whidbey, especially in the Village by the Sea, which may increase as a result of regular Sunday bus service to the city. “We want to make sure Langley is a hub and focal point for visitation,” the mayor said. Curt Gordon, president of the Port’s board of commissioners, said Tuesday he was personally

thrilled the city council was interested in such a partnership, but confirmed that the board has not taken action to officially endorse such an agreement. However, he said he would be advocating for the support of his fellow commissioners on the proposal at a special meeting next week. The meeting begins at 7:30 p.m., Oct. 9, and will be held at the South Parks & Recreation District headquarters on Maxwelton Road.

Road to success The habits of both commuters and visitors are heavily dictated by the availability of transportation options, and Gordon believes the current lack of parking in Mukilteo is resulting in lost dollars for South Whidbey. “Part of the reason people don’t walk on the ferry is because there is no place to park your car,” he said. Existing parking facilities in Mukilteo have changed uses in recent years, resulting in a reduction of commuter and visitor parking, and Gordon has been looking into ways of acquiring land and building a replacement facility. Similarly, Island Transit does not operate on Sunday, and both Kwarsick and Gordon think it represents a significant gap in service. That

makes it hard for people to visit areas on the island for a weekend getaway without their vehicles and Kwarsick is especially interested in improving access to the city. Alone, both objectives are difficult to achieve. Cities can’t own a park and ride out of their jurisdiction and ports don’t have the legal authority to implement a bus service. Partnering to achieve both goals makes sense, Kwarsick said. “Together we can do that and provide a complete package,” the mayor said. A pilot program for bus service would be limited between the city and ferry dock, though a few stops may be in between. Also, it would likely be a shuttle service or van, rather than an Island Transit bus. Martha Rose, director of the transportation agency, said island-wide Sunday service is in Island Transit’s comprehensive plan, but it will be some time before it’s realized due to a lack of resources and other ongoing projects. “It is in our plan and it’s something we will do,” Rose said. “It’s just not the right time for us to do it.” But that doesn’t mean she doesn’t support Langley’s efforts to implement a pilot program for Sunday bus service. Rose said she would be

Kwarsick said the prospective owners appear to be looking at a mixed use, continuing to use the upstairs as overnight living space or a vacation rental, while the bottom floor could be used for a yet to be decided commercial purpose. “It doesn’t look like they are interested in a restaurant,” Kwarsick said. Jason Joiner, a managing broker for Windermere Real Estate in Freeland, is representing the interested buyers and described them as a married couple who own property on Whidbey Island, including Langley. The building is currently owned by Whidbey Island Bank. Joiner said his clients are in a feasibility period to ascertain possible uses for the building and costs of possible renovation. Joiner confirmed the prospective buyers are interested in using the upstairs for overnight accommodations but made it clear that no decisions have been made about the downstairs.

Alternative school thrives Sheriff’s Report with a little community help BY BEN WATANABE Staff reporter The saying is “It takes a village to raise a child.” In the South Whidbey School District, that is being proven true. South Whidbey Academy, the district’s new K-12 alternative school with 65 students, was highlighted by the superintendent and the school’s director for utilizing partnership programs to educate students. Many of the examples were elective activities — dance, drama, choir, physical education — which have been reduced throughout the district. “Our program and students benefit from community participation and we encourage others to contact us as we continue to grow learning partnerships,” wrote David Pfeiffer, the academy’s director, in the superintendent’s weekly online update. One project, however, has persisted and may soon increase. There is a lot of space at the alternative school’s new location at the former South Whidbey Primary Campus on Maxwelton Road, both inside and outside the building. Beyond the walls and classrooms is where Pfeiffer, Superintendent Jo Moccia and the Good Cheer Food Bank see plenty of potential. Building a new garden on the field behind the school was proposed and briefly discussed by Moccia at a school board meeting this summer. Both the school district and the nonprofit food bank want the garden, and plans have been made for the dimensions and upkeep of the 25-foot-by-150-foot plot. The only thing left is money to pay for the program, which Pfeiffer and the district are pursuing through grant applications such as the recently awarded Tulalip Tribes Foundation grant. “It’s very exciting, but it’s not an official program yet,” said Good Cheer garden coordinator Cary Peterson. “It’s not an official partnership; there isn’t any money yet.” “We’re in the awkward stage now where the momentum is there and the funding has to catch up.” Since 2009, Peterson has overseen the management of gardens at two of South Whidbey’s schools. The oldest school garden is at Langley Middle School, and the largest was at Bayview School, which housed the alternative high school until this year. Students at Bayview School helped till soil, plant small crops, care for the seedlings and harvest the crop with the assistance of Good

“It’s all student based. Every step of the way will be coordinated by an apprentice ... But it’s all the students doing the work.” Cary Peterson garden coordinator Good Cheer Food Bank

Cheer apprentices like Bobby Cressman and Allie Urbanek. “Planting something from a seed, watching it grow and then bringing it to the food bank, there are so many vectors of learning in that,” Peterson said. “It’s all student based. Every step of the way will be coordinated by an apprentice in our community garden leader training. But it’s all the students doing the work.” The proposed but not-yet-approved garden could field 24 beds and would include a greenhouse. Students in the academy’s middle school Discovery Program measured the plot and divided the rows and pathways. Projects like this garden are ideal for the district’s STEM (science, technology, engineering, mathematics) goals, as well as its “green” and sustainability focus this year. Pfeiffer called the garden project a “learning laboratory” where students can learn science, sustainability and health. Produce grown from the school gardens goes to the food bank in Bayview. “It’s more than the food that we get, it’s the connection with the students,” said Good Cheer Executive Director Kathy McLaughlin-McCabe. “If we are teaching our children in our community how to grow, how to eat healthy, then we are getting closer to a truly hungerfree community.” Long before the grassy area can be turned into a fertile patch of vegetables and fruits, the ground itself will need a transformation. Peterson said the dirt there is sandy and would require a process of growing nutrient-rich soil in the first few years. In the meantime, the school and garden-keepers have to pick plants that are less nutrient demanding. “That’s a powerful learning experience to see how soil is created,” Peterson said. “Essentially, life on the planet is dependent on the soil that nurtures us.”

used to purchase at least two new solar powered radar/speed signs. Heston tried earlier this year to secure grant funding for the signs from the Washington Traffic Safety Commission but the program proved too competitive and he was turned down. Unwilling to give up, Heston worked with other city officials to put together another grant package for traffic safety funding available through the RTPO and this time his efforts met with success. “I’ve been working hard all year to improve things and it’s finally paying off,” Heston said. There are several areas in town where people often speed and Heston is eager to purchase the signs and put them to work. Semi-movable, locations being considered include the school zone on Camano Avenue, Third Street, Saratoga Road and Sixth Street. Each sign costs about $5,500 and Heston is hoping to work to drum up a few extra dollars or broker a deal with the manufacturer to secure a third unit.

stop. When the car pulled into the driveway, they encountered the girl’s boyfriend, Michaud, who was clearing vegetation with a machete. Michaud apparently got angry at seeing the girl in a car with a man and started hitting the car with his machete, according to the deputy’s report. The driver got out of his car to confront Michaud, but the girl tried to intervene. She attempted to take the machete from Michaud, but he was swinging it and cut her finger.

GOP isn’t ‘American Taliban’ To the editor: While driving in the city of Oak Harbor, I saw a sticker that read “Republicans are the American Taliban” on the bumper of a pickup truck. I was shocked to see the claim that an American political party is a heinous organization dedicated to the demise of our nation. I have to assume one of two things: either the owner of the truck had no idea how horrible this statement is or the owner is a member of the Taliban. Either way, to claim a political party is a murderous, radically religious organization is tantamount to declaring the Republican Party a terrorist threat to the United States. The political rivalry between the Republicans and Democrats has gone on since the Civil War, but a person should not be vilified just because of their political beliefs nor should a political party be condemned because others do not agree with their beliefs. Since the American Revolution we have struggled to rise above the hatreds and bigotry in the differences of race, creed and religion. There are forces at work attempting to undermine the basic tenets of our concept of governing a diverse group of people who call themselves Americans, all of whom are different but insist on equality. We exist as a nation because we respect each other’s differences. A movie made in America has infuriated the Muslim world because of the religious content. Should we allow someone to sow the seeds of hatred by comparing a recognized political party to a terrorist movement? To denigrate members of the Republican Party by claiming them to be the Taliban is to claim the Republicans are murderers, rapists and destroyers of Christianity’s highest principals. Is the driver of the pickup truck too naive or politically ignorant to realize the enormity of the effect the bumper sticker has or is the driver a member of the Taliban? RICHARD BRAUER Langley

Ref. 74 not the answer To the editor: My daughter, a wonderful woman working on medical research that helps save children’s lives and helps alleviate human

suffering, wants to marry her partner of 20 years, a fine teacher at an excellent school and also a wonderful woman. As a loving parent, I am all for their desire to receive society’s approval on their relationship. I will happily and proudly attend any wedding they may have. After attending an Referendum 74 forum in Oak Harbor, I now believe R-74 is the wrong way to solve the controversial and difficult issue of homosexual marriage. I am not a religious believer. I believe it’s time to “privatize” marriage. The First Amendment to the Constitution of the United States is one of the most important parts of our nation’s heritage. It protects the rights of religious believers to worship and practice their beliefs however they see fit. It also protects the rights of all citizens — religious believers and non-believers (such as myself) alike — to live in a civil, productive and peaceful society. The solution to the debate I heard about what marriage should be is to separate the definition of “marriage” (essentially a religious term, defined in a variety of ways) from the definition of partnership relationships among human beings.

ly these relationships involve reproduction, child care and rearing, property, medical and end-of-life issues. Speaking as a person married for 46 years, I know that marriage, domestic partnership, civil union or whatever label we want to use to describe human relationships is a very difficult task. About 50 percent of marriages fail. Let churches define marriage as their beliefs dictate. Churches should be free to marry or not marry anyone they see fit. Church marriage should have no legal standing. Society, using traditional and common sense definitions of marriage and domestic partnerships — permitted for consenting adult humans — should regulate these relationships as part of our civil law process. When adults alone are involved, these relationships are best regulated by contract law. When children are involved, society has a legitimate interest in protecting children’s welfare in regard to matters such as health and education. These are difficult issues involving contentious matters such as home schooling (which I do not oppose). These issues remain difficult no matter how we define marriage. STEPHEN KAHN Langley

Bailey is wrong choice To the editor: Barbara Bailey (R) is an unacceptable choice for Washington. In our legislature there are 23 ALEC members and Bailey is front and center. Bill Moyers was on Channel 9 this weekend talking about ALEC (American Legislative Exchange) and their shortcut to legislation. The bills they introduce are the same as copying your school work from another kid. Even if you don’t get caught at it, it’s still wrong. Worse yet, if you don’t know what’s in there you don’t know who it’s benefiting. It certifiably won’t be Washington citizens. Don’t be swayed by the R or D. Look at who they are what they stand for. Will they work for you or some shadowy, out-of-state interest? Local elections are far more important then national elections. Governors and presidents don’t write the laws, the House and Senate do. Make sure you know what’s going into those laws is honest! MICHAEL MOODY Greenbank

Shoreline Management rule rewrite makes waves Three public meetings scheduled to discuss revised shoreline rules BY JUSTIN BURNETT Staff reporter A long-range planning document that will dictate how development moves forward on shorelines in rural Island County over the next 20 years will be the focus of a series of public meetings beginning next week. County planning officials and the Planning Commission recently completed a comprehensive update of the shoreline master program and their recommendations have been forwarded to the Island County commissioners for review and approval. Before the board takes action in November, the updated rules are to be discussed at public meetings on Whidbey and Camano. The first begins at 4:30 p.m. Tuesday, Oct. 9, and will be held in Grigware Hall at Trinity Lutheran Church in Freeland. The second meeting will be held the following week at 6 p.m. Monday, Oct. 15 in the Commissioner’s Hearing Room in Coupeville and the third is scheduled to take place the next day, Oct. 16, on Camano Island. Described as an overhaul to the existing shoreline master program, which was first drafted more than 30 years ago, the update is state mandated and will impact both new and existing development, said Karen Stewart, program coordinator with Island County Planning and Community Development.

“It’s a major rewrite,” she said. The rules, which apply to all development within 200 feet upland of the ordinary high-water mark and six lakes in Island County, were first drafted in 1976 in response to the state Shoreline Management Act. It was passed by the state Legislature in 1971 and adopted by voters the following year. Guidelines with advancements in science and best management practices were adopted in 2003 and all municipalities, from cities to counties, were required to update their plans with the new state standards. Stewart, a specialist who has worked on five other updates, was hired in 2010 to lead the county in the revision process. Over the past two years, the document has been worked by a technical advisory group, the planning commission and been talked about in at least 15 public meetings. A host of issues and concerns from the community have been broached through the process but cries for dedicated or reclaimed public beach accesses have been by far the loudest. Mike McVay, founder of Island Citizens For Public Beach Access, has been one of those leading the charge. In testimony to the planning commission, he advocated that the rule update should place greater emphasis on the reclamation of beach access points that have been

in the future difficult or even impossible in some cases, said Jeff White, a Clinton small business owner who does private residential design and permit work. Some properties may lose value as a result and may lead to frustrated residents taking matters in their own hands. “In the worst case scenarios, you’ll have people doing outlaw stuff,” White said. “The county has to take some responsibility for properties and developments they have permitted in the past,” he said. There are many instances where existing development could be affected. The rules will impact how bulkheads, piers and stairs to beaches can be maintained or repaired. Even mooring buoys for anchored boats are addressed in the new rules. Representatives from

several commercial interests also voiced concerns about the update. Ian Jefferds of Penn Cove Shellfish and Diani Taylor of Sheltonbased Taylor Shellfish Farms both submitted written comments concerning aquaculture and the Skagit/ Island Counties Builders Association, commonly referred to as SICBA, complained about host of issues, from public access and buffer requirements to sections pertaining to shoreline armoring and bulkhead repair. Even some elected officials worry the rules may go too far. Port of South Whidbey Commissioner Dennis Gregoire recently wrote to Stewart about the limitations the update may place on the improvement of boat ramps, which he described as “historic public access points to public waters.” “It looks to me the Shoreline Management Act has become the shoreline

protection act,” Gregoire wrote. “Based on my 30 years of dealing with shoreline planning and waterfront development, I see a very bleak future for any development providing public access through boating facilities along Island County’s shorelines.” Pederson said the update was a major endeavor and is not surprised that the balanced approach taken by its drafters has resulted in some concern from the public. This is not a one size fits all document, he said, but is an attempt to balance both the direction from the state and the needs of Whidbey Island’s rural community. Overall, he said he is content with the result. Also, there is still plenty of time to learn about just what is being proposed, submit comments and make changes before its goes before the board of commissioners for adoption. “We haven’t even started the public hearing process,” Stewart said. After next week’s workshop meetings, the board will begin to review the proposed update and request any changes. The public hearing in which they might take action is tentatively scheduled for Nov. 5.

The prospective grant is administered through the state Department of Transportation. The Regional Mobility Grant Program has provided about $60 million to support local projects since 2006, according to the agency’s website. With an application deadline of Oct. 10, Kwarsick said the city is on a tight timeline and all the details have yet to be hammered out. For example, it’s still not clear how much will be asked for, he said. “Obviously, the acquisition of land and the construction of a 65-car facility would be a multi-million dollar project,” Kwarsick said. “I can say that.” However, he is confident a proposal will be ready in time for the commissioners meeting next week Tuesday, the day before the application deadline. With no guarantee that the Port will even sign off on the partnership, despite Gordon’s support, Kwarsick said the city may be forced to forge ahead alone. In that

Volleyball team finds new life in second half of season BY BEN WATANABE Staff reporter LANGLEY — South Whidbey’s shot at upsetting one of Washington’s top volleyball teams fell short. The Falcons narrowly lost to the Lady Knights, who won 25-22, 25-19, 23-25, 25-18 on Tuesday. King’s had only lost two sets in its undefeated season prior to the match with South Whidbey. A couple of held serves and kills here or there, and the Falcons could have truly challenged the Lady Knights for the first time all season. “I’m just really happy we took a game away from them,” said Falcon junior setter Alexa Hess, who played the entirety of the third set and assisted 14 points. Though the match was a loss, it was South Whidbey’s best performance of the season against one of the best teams in the state. South Whidbey turned around from its previous loss to King’s in three sets (25-17, 25-13, 25-14). “I hope that they’re proud of themselves and that they put up a fight,” said Falcon head coach Mandy Jones. “Our confidence level was up, we were serving tough. We were right in it.” Early in the match King’s was in control. The Lady Knights pulled ahead from a 6-6 tie to lead 15-8, when Jones called a timeout to

That 60-second break gave South Whidbey all it needed to try a comeback, as the Falcons scrapped their way to trail 20-18. “I think we came out with a lot of fight because we wanted to win and knew we could take them (the Lady Knights),” said Falcon junior libero Chantel Brown. An ace by junior setter Meagan Longdon cut the

lead to 22-21 and a Lady Knights’ error tied the set 22-22. King’s regained the lead on a kill, then rolled to victory on aces by junior hitter Alysanne Van Dyke, who led all players with 17 kills, six digs and three aces. South Whidbey controlled the lead through the early points in the second set. The Falcons soared to one of their few leads at 12-7 on a kill by junior hitter Mackenzie Hezel. King’s head coach Jeff Fransen used a timeout to

settle his Lady Knights, who scored seven unanswered points to lead the Falcons 14-12. The Lady Knights’ offense found its rhythm and scored five points on kills and an ace to win 25-19. “When they would miss a serve, we wouldn’t be able to hold on to the ball,” Jones said. The third set was all about fight, and South Whidbey battled for every point it scored all the way to a 25-22 win. King’s and South Whidbey

traded the lead five times until the Falcons gained the edge at 14-13 on a kill by sophomore hitter Abby Hodson. Brown’s dig on a hard hit sailed back over the net and fell to the court, and Hezel drilled a kill to lead 16-13. “I was just trying to get my passes up for the setters,” said Brown, who finished the match with 14 digs and two aces. “That didn’t always work. Sometimes I had passes that went right back over the net.” Fransen used another timeout to great effect as the Lady Knights tied the set 16-16. But consecutive errors gave South Whidbey the lead again, forcing King’s to rally to 18-18. South Whidbey tried to extend its lead, but King’s came back to tie 22-22 on an ace by senior libero Haylie Dods, who tallied 14 digs and three aces. Errors brought the Lady Knights back, this

time within one point of losing the set and missing out on a sweep. King’s called a timeout and rallied for another point, but Falcon sophomore hitter Anne Madsen won the set on a kill, assisted by Hess, 25-23. “We found out that when we talk, we get the points,” Hess said of the Falcons’ oncourt chatter. King’s found its fight again in the fourth set. The Lady Knights broke a tie on a Falcon error at 8-7, then rolled to a 13-7 lead. South Whidbey next came closest to the lead at 18-14 on another long dig by Brown that dropped. King’s offense was too much for South Whidbey and went on to win 25-19. South Whidbey was led by senior hitter Hannah Calderwood with 12 kills. Hezel added 12 digs and nine kills; Madsen finished with seven kills and three blocks; Hodson had seven kills and two blocks. On the road Thursday in Duvall, Cedarcrest swept South Whidbey 3-0. The Falcons fought for the first two sets, 25-18 and 26-24, but struggled in the third set and lost 25-15. Longdon had 22 assists and Hezel led the Falcons with eight kills. South Whidbey is sixth in the league at 3-6 in Cascade Conference matches and 3-7 overall; Cedarcrest is in second place at 8-1 in conference and overall games.

Boys tennis splits matches with Overlake, Seattle Academy BY BEN WATANABE Staff reporter South Whidbey’s boys tennis team split a pair of matches with Seattle-area schools this week. The Falcons defeated Seattle Academy on Tuesday, 3-2, then lost to Overlake 2-3 on Wednesday in a makeup match. “We are at a good point in the season,” said Falcon head coach Karyle Kramer. “Players are rising to the top of their games, showing good focus in practice and in match play. They are differentiating themselves through improved play and strategy.” Against Seattle Academy, South Whidbey (6-5 overall) swept its two singles contests and won third doubles.

During the set break, Sparkman told Kramer he knew what was needed to win. Then he showed her. Sparkman cruised in the second set to a 6-3 win to force a third set tiebreaker; the first player to score 10 points wins. Gibson led 7-3 before Sparkman rallied for the 10-8 victory. “More than anything, Guy proved to himself that he could come through under pressure,” Kramer said. The Falcons claimed only one more match against the Owls. Stelling beat Tony Lee, 6-1, 6-4, in the second singles match.

South Whidbey’s three doubles teams all lost to Overlake. Keshaw Ummat and Ethan Hayden defeated Baldwin and Hughes, 6-2, 6-1; Preston Ballout and Andrew Gavrila beat Simmons and Peterson, 7-6 (7-5), 6-1; and Rob Neir and Mac Hewitt defeated Hood and Simchuk, 6-0, 6-2. Tri-district playoffs begin Wednesday, Oct. 24 at the Amy Yee Tennis Center in Seattle. South Whidbey will send two singles players and two doubles teams to the tournament. “At this point, it comes down to confidence and experience — two aspects of the game that often are fueled by playing in the offseason,” Kramer said. South Whidbey finished its regular season Friday against Bellingham.

Defense busts in shutout losses to King’s, Cedarcrest BY BEN WATANABE Staff reporter LANGLEY — South Whidbey’s defense held the King’s girls soccer team scoreless for less than 10 minutes. Then the Lady Knights’ consistent pressure and barrage of shots broke through the Falcon defense. King’s led 2-0 by halftime, scored another pair of goals in the second half and left Waterman Field with another Cascade Conference victory Tuesday. In the first half, the ball rarely left the Lady Knights’ possession. King’s relied on its fast forwards and quickpassing midfielders to move around South Whidbey’s defenders. The plan worked as King’s hit a dozen shots on goal in the first 40 minutes. With the Lady Knights’ offense rolling, it was a matter of time before they scored against a depleted Falcon defense. South Whidbey (3-6 Cascade Conference;

South Whidbey photographer and artist Kim Tinuviel will host a photowalk in Langley Oct. 13. She will show participants interesting areas to take creative photos, including public art like this sculpture by John Alsip.

Photographer adds Langley to Worldwide Photowalk BY REBECCA OLSON Staff reporter


im Tinuviel doesn’t just see green or teal with her eyes; she sees colors through music. A chord can spark a symphony of hues in her mind, just as a visual image triggers a harmony of music. As a photographer, Tinuviel uses this quality to compose abstract photography that often looks like images from a fantasy world. She will reveal how to see the extraordinary in the ordinary when she includes Langley in the Worldwide Photowalk event. Register now for the walking photo tour of Langley set for 9 to 11 a.m. Saturday, Oct. 13. Registration is required so Tinuviel can fill participants in on details like meeting places. Register at langley-wa-united-states. All levels of photographers and all types of cameras — from digital single-lens reflex cameras to film and even iPhones — are welcome. The Worldwide Photowalk was created by Scott Kelby, an evangelist for Adobe Photoshop software.

Tinuviel participated in a photowalk in Albuquerque last year at a balloon festival. “So we started it at 4:30 in the morning when it was really dark,” Tinuviel said. Then, as the balloons started filling with hot air, the colors were incredible in the darkness, she said, adding that it was such a motivational and inspirational experience that she wanted to share it with Langley. “Really what it is, besides taking photos you wouldn’t otherwise take, is getting to meet people,” Tinuviel said. Pros and beginners meet to learn from each other as the photowalks attract people from the local community and worldwide. “After we finish shooting, we’ll meet and compare what shots we got,” Tinuviel said. “It’s so inspirational to see the work other people are doing.” “We have a lot of really great character in Langley,” she added. During the walk, Tinuviel will point out scenic photo locations and help participants to see images they otherwise might miss. If it’s raining or foggy, that’s no problem.

the exact subjects are secret to Tinuviel so that viewers focus on the composition rather than the subject, they are everyday items and locations Tinuviel sees something special in. “Photographically, when I look for a subject to shoot, I’m looking with a musical mind,” Tinuviel said. She composes her photograph in the camera with the colors she hears in her mind. “I think the magic of my successful work is it is magical because it is musical. Even if people can’t hear the color the way I do, they sense something, something special about it,” Tinuviel explained. “The whole point for me is what these colors are saying musically and the structural composition of the piece.” Her ChromoAlchemy series is “a study of the effects of time and the elements on color and texture,” Tinuviel said.

Shell shocked

Penn Cove Shellfish still recovering from May sinking of the Deep Sea BY Harry Anderson Special to the Record


an Jefferds steps carefully from the skiff onto one of the mussel farm platforms his family has operated for 37 years. It’s a sunny, picture-postcard morning in August on Penn Cove, with Mount Baker shimmering in the distance and baby seals lazily reclining on platforms nearby. But Jefferds isn’t smiling. He’s worried. He pulls one of the hundreds of platform lines out of the water. By now, those lines are usually crowded with seed mussels that have attached themselves to the lines during the first spawning season in June. But that initial seeding didn’t happen this year. The Deep Sea disaster in mid-May seems to have disturbed the natural process.

Jefferds knows that if the “second seed” that normally occurs in late summer doesn’t happen, his business might lose some or all of its 2013 harvest of Penn Cove mussels, worth tens of millions of dollars. He holds the line in his hand; dozens of tiny seed mussels are visible and seem to be attaching themselves to the line. “It looks pretty good,” he says, with a look of relief. “I’m cautiously optimistic.” That optimism paid off. A few days ago Jefferds said he’s now satisfied that a decent “second seed” has occurred, which assures a good crop of Penn Cove mussels next summer. But he said the loss of the first seed means that next summer’s harvesting will be delayed by three months — meaning that the company must stretch its 2012 crop until

time, he estimated that the closure was costing Penn Cove Shellfish $50,000 a day in lost harvest. Today, he’s still calculating the total cost. Once the mussel farm resumed operations in midJune, it became apparent that the diesel spill had upset the initial seeding, which at minimum means that Jefferds’ 2013 harvest of local mussels may be delayed at least two months. “After the diesel spill, there was a ‘down-welling’ effect caused by tidal action, and that took some of the diesel down as far as four or five feet below the surface,” he said. “The government lab reported that our growing mussels on the lines were able to get rid of it, but the down-welling seems to have upset the ability of the young seed mussels to attach to our lines, exactly when that naturally happens in June.”

“We’re lucky to be able to farm here because we’re able to grow a good crop in a nice area that’s dependent on clean water.”

Ian Jefferds Penn Cove Shellfish

Penn Cove mussels. Most Americans had never eaten mussels. They were a considered a delicacy eaten in Asia and France. When they first tried to sell them in places like Pike Place Market in Seattle, “a lot of guys thought we were selling bait,” he said. Then came their big break. Seattle’s best French restaurant in the late 1970s was Le Tastevin, operated by two well-known chefs, Emile Ninaud and Jacques Boiroux. They spotted the mussels in the market, bought some and put them on their menu. Not long thereafter, Emmett Watson, the legendary columnist for the Seattle PostIntelligencer and Times, wrote a column in which the two French chefs declared that the mussels from “Coop-veel” were the best they’d ever tasted — better even than those in their native France. Soon, other chefs got on the bandwagon and the fame of the local mussels began to grow.

2 types of mussels Today, Penn Cove Shellfish grows two types of mussels. The species native to Penn Cove and which naturally attaches to lines on the local platforms is Mytillus trossolus. Its meat is cream-colored and it typically grows to a harvest size of two or three inches. The other species farmed locally is Mytillus galloprovincialis, commonly known as the Mediterranean mussel, which typically grows to a harvest size of about four inches. The meat of the females is apricot-colored. The Mediterranean mussels harvested by Penn Cove Shellfish begin life in the world’s largest shellfish hatchery in Quilcene. Once the young mussels are seeded on lines, they are transported

to Penn Cove to grow to maturity. The Quilcene hatchery is owned by Coast Seafoods of South Bend, Wash., which in 1996 acquired a 50 percent interest in Penn Cove Shellfish. The Jefferds family continues to own the other 50 percent and manages the company as a stand-alone operation. “We created the joint venture with Coast Seafoods to get access to its shellfish hatchery in Quilcene in order to grow the Mediterranean mussels and to be able distribute some of their other products, including Kumamoto oysters and Manila clams,” Jefferds said. The company now employs about 65, some working at the Quilcene hatchery and others working at Everest Marine & Equipment, the company’s boat-building and repair operation in Burlington. But the preponderance of the employees — as many as 50 — work in Coupeville, either on the platforms or at the company’s expansive new warehouse and distribution center off Sherman Road. Its total employment ranks it as Island County’s 16th largest private employer, according to the Island County Economic Development Council. Jefferds estimates that 75 percent of his 2013 har-

If he loses much of his Penn Cove mussel harvest, he will be heavily dependent on the Mediterranean mussels hatched at the Quilcene hatchery. And if his harvest is diminished next year, he knows that strong competitors, especially Canadian mussel farmers from Prince Edward Island, can easily fill any void in the market. Prince Edward Island is by far North America’s largest mussel producer, harvesting more than 35 million pounds a year.

Claims coming He is currently preparing a claim to recover some of his Deep Sea losses through the National Pollution Funds Center, an agency of the Coast Guard funded through a tax on oil products. But, even if the claim is successful, he

would be able to recover only the profit lost from harvesting that didn’t happen during the Deep Sea fire and sinking. One thing he deeply appreciates, however, is how much the local community has supported the mussel farm throughout the Deep Sea affair. “We’re lucky to be able to farm here because we’re able to grow a good crop in a nice area that’s dependent on clean water,” Jefferds said. “I think when this happened, everybody realized how important clean water is to our operation, and it probably caused some reflection on a lot of people’s part about how important it is to their own interests as well. We’re all in the same boat. We

When something like the Deep Sea happens, it tells us how fragile our environment is and how easy it is to lose something like Penn Cove Shellfish that has become so much a part of us.”

Those few days in May are burned in Jefferds’ memory, but like any farmer he doesn’t stop long to think about the past. He has a harvest to worry about — this year’s and next. Penn Cove Shellfish is the nation’s largest commercial mussel farm, harvesting 1.5 to 2 million pounds of the distinctive mollusks from Penn Cove each year and shipping them as far as New York, Miami, Singapore and Thailand. “Penn Cove Shellfish has a global reach and has established a reputation that is absolutely impeccable,” said Sherry Wyatt, marketing manager for Island County Tourism. “When I traveled to New York to speak about our region, the high profile attribute most identified with us was Penn Cove mussels. Some knew about whales, Whidbey Naval Air Station or Deception Pass, but everyone seemed to have heard of Penn Cove mussels.” In the early years, it wasn’t easy finding buyers for

Shaking it up Free American Red Cross app allows Whidbey residents to get up-to-date information during emergencies BY KATHY REED Staff reporter A new app launched by the American Red Cross is custom made for people who live in or visit earthquake-prone areas. The free Earthquake App is the third in a series created by the Red Cross, coming on the heels of the organization’s First Aid and Hurricane apps, which have been downloaded more than 1 million times. The app is for use on both iPhone and Android smartphone and tablet platforms and is available in English and Spanish. “This newest app gives instant access to local and real time information on what to do before, during and after earthMary Frances Close quakes,” said Red Cross Regional Director Chuck Morrison. “People will receive earthquake notifications and can monitor activity where other family and friends reside.” “More and more people are using social media,” said Nancy Waddell, co-leader, South Whidbey Islands Chapter Red Cross Response Team. “It’s an attempt to reach those users who are using these devices to get information.”

Planning for ‘what if’ Waddell said the launch of the new app coincided with National Preparedness Month during September. “These apps really help with planning because it gives people the tools they need to keep handy right on their smartphone,” she said. The app features real-time alerts and Shake Zone Impact Maps, simplifying earthquake data for users. Other features include: notifications showing the epicenter, magnitude and intensity; one-touch messaging that allows users to broadcast an “I’m safe” message; locations of Red Cross shelters; checklists and simple steps to create a family emergency plan; information on events that may happen after an earthquake, such as fires and tsunamis; and a toolkit with flashlight, strobe light and an audible alarm. “It’s another communication tool to help people be prepared and be able to access their plans,” Waddell said. “Who can find a little piece of paper with notes? For people with smartphones, everybody has them with them.” “A disaster, when it happens, can hit small or it can hit large,” said Islands Red Cross Community Chapter Executive Director Mary Frances Close. “We’re trying to get people to think about the ‘what if’ scenario and have a plan in place.”

Waddell said many people on Whidbey Island often ask where the Red Cross shelters are located, or which shelter would be open in the event of an emergency. There’s not a good answer to that, Waddell said, because they won’t know until something happens. The new app provides a link to the national shelter system. “That is really valuable,” she said. “Because we’re not clear which shelter would be open until an event happens. We rely on the national shelter system.”

These screen shots show how the Red Cross app can help warn of earthquakes and save lives during a disaster.

How the Red Cross helps in Island County In 2011, the Islands Chapter of the Red Cross helped 28 families affected by house fires and other emergencies and provided emergency communications and other assistance for more than 800 military families through Red Cross’ Service to Armed Forces Program. Volunteers provide service in the San Juans, Fidalgo and Whidbey Island. Go to for information.
