New Langley cop to double duty at schools BY JUSTIN BURNETT Staff reporter Langley’s budget is beginning to take shape and it appears the police presence in town and in the South Whidbey School District is set to increase. Last week, the City Council gave Langley officials the green light to begin the formal process of looking for a new officer. The position will not only bring needed relief to the small three-man police department, but it will also see the establishment of a school resource officer. “It’s going to be great for the school district and it’s going to be great for the community,” said a happy Randy Heston, Langley’s police chief. The line item won’t be finalized until

“It’s an example of alternative roles for police officers in the community.” Larry Kwarsick Langley mayor

here’s a lot to be grossed out by worms. Their sticky skin, writhing motion and eyeless heads are some of the reasons South Whidbey’s second graders squirmed while studying the creatures. As Janet Hall explains that the container of soil she has is actually worm poop, the unison ick-factor becomes audible — “ewwwwww.” Seeing, smelling and touching the worms in compost Monday morning was part of South Whidbey Elementary School’s science kickoff day. All second graders rotated to five stations covering various science and naturerelated issues, including worms and soil, beans, bees, birds and gases and solids. “My kids may not get to insects until spring, so it’s fun for them to know this is coming,” said Leslie Woods, a second grade teacher. “It’s a taste of what’s coming.” Woods and the other second grade teach-

“We’re trying to make things more hands-on and connected.”

the budget is formally approved, but Mayor Larry Kwarsick said he felt the council’s preliminary nod was as good an indicator of support as you can get. “It was a pretty strong nod,” he said. This is a significant victory for both men, as they have been hinting, if not outright advocating, for the position all year. The department was downsized in 2011 by one officer through attrition for budgetary reasons. Getting the department back up to its previous strength has been a goal for Kwarsick since he took office. Working with Heston, the mayor said he believes they were able to effectively demonstrate to the council that overtime and the cost of hiring reserve officers has proved comparable to the price tag of a fourth officer. “The difference is not that significant,” Kwarsick said. A new officer will mean big things for the department. For one, it will take pressure off Heston and his two existing officers who have been working hard to maintain a consistent police presence in town. A fourth officer will also allow the scheduling of two cops during the day. See Duty, A24

Johnson vs. Homola: Differences are stark in District 2 race are in dispute. Johnson is the executive director of the Oak Harbor Chamber of Commerce. She started her career in politics and managed campaigns in Washington, Texas and Colorado. She was an important voice in the successful campaigns to remodel Oak Harbor High School and build the stadium. The two candidates have

BY JESSIE STENSLAND Staff reporter

The tension between the two candidates vying to represent Oak Harbor-area residents on the Board of Island County Commissioners started before either of them ran for public office. The city of Oak Harbor was considering a measure that would have lead to a large development on the south end of the city. Homola, a founding member of Swan Lake Preservation Group, spoke out against the proposal as being harmful urban sprawl; Jill Johnson, the Oak Harbor chamber director, spoke at a council meeting, saying that the majority of chamber members were in favor of the idea. A confrontation later ensued. Homola claimed Johnson misrepresented the facts and was rude. Johnson claimed that Homola was a bully and acted as if she had the right to demand documents from the private organization. The disagreement illustrates the many differences between the two candidates, their vision for the future of the county and just how strongly they hold their positions. “We have to throw out the old playbook model of growing as fast as we can,” Homola said. “…We can no longer rely on growth to to fund the budget. We were

seeing our taxes go up and our quality of life go down.” Johnson said well-planned growth and development is sometimes necessary and she’s in favor of expanding the city of Oak Harbor’s boundaries, which Homola helped to partially block. Johnson claims Homola is simply against growth. “If you are truly concerned about the environment, putting homes in urban areas is

much more preferable,” she said. Homola is running for reelection after one term in office marked by historic budget shortfalls. She is extremely hardworking and involved in countless committees and groups, which can also make it hard for citizens to get hold of her. She is an architect and used to work for the county planning department until she was fired for reasons that

different views on a wide range of issues. One only has to turn to the recently adopted Island County budget to see a good illustration.

Budget differences After years of budget cutting, the commissioners finally were in the position to restore some of positions and programs that have been

eliminated during the economic downturn. Homola voted to fund a new longrange planner, as well as a corrections deputy, in the 2013 budget. Johnson argued that Homola is out of touch for placing the planning position at such a high priority. See District 2, A10

In our opinion Keep Haugen, Smith, add Riggs Veteran Democratic State Sen. Mary Margaret Haugen faces a stiff challenge this year from Rep. Barbara Bailey, who has a strong Republican following based in Oak Harbor. But this is no time to replace the Chairwoman of the Senate Transportation Committee. Anyone who doesn’t think Haugen is important to South Whidbey should read her mailers and watch TV. Standing by her side is Matt Nichols, CEO of Nichols Brothers Boat Builders in Freeland, which has benefited tremendously as Haugen has steered state ferry construction work to smaller boat yards. Nichols Brothers just landed another ferry superstructure job, thanks in large part to Haugen. We can also thank Haugen for helping Island Transit in numerous ways over the years, keeping our beloved free bus service rolling and growing, and for many other beneficial projects too numerous to list. Bailey couldn’t get much done as a minority senator in the Senate. That’s how she spent all her time in the House, and Democratic control there kept her from implementing any of her vaguely stated cost-cutting desires. With Bailey out of the way, her District 10 House seat is up for grabs. Republican Dave Hayes is a great guy, having served 21 years in the Navy including time spent at Whidbey Island Naval Air Station. Since then he’s been a police officer in a leadership position in Marysville, often involved in crafting crime-fighting legislation in Olympia. He would be a fine representative. Trouble is, the 10th District’s House delegation has included two Republican representatives for too long. We need one 10th District Democrat in the House as that party is in control. A Republican can help move bipartisan legislation but has no chance at leadership. A Democrat in the mix could get more done, as exemplified by Clinton resident Dave Anderson’s productive few years in the Legislature. So our support goes to Hayes’ election foe, Democrat Tom Riggs, who lost two years ago. As a state park ranger on Camano Island, he can kick the Legislature in the pants for gutting State Parks funding. He also cares deeply about small business and jobs, he volunteers in the public schools, and does many other things to help his Camano Island community. He knows Whidbey well and could represent us effectively in Olympia. But either way, voters can’t make a wrong decision in this race. The final 10th District spot should be kept by Republican Norma Smith, a former school board member on South Whidbey and one-time aide to the late Congressman Jack Metcalf. She is well liked wherever she goes, works hard, does her homework and genuinely cares about education and jobs. Her challenger, Langley barista Aaron Simpson, simply lacks the necessary experience. A slate of Sen. Haugen, Rep. Smith and Rep. Riggs would serve Whidbey Island’s interests well in Olympia when the Legislature convenes in January.

Stick-on ad wrongly placed To the editor: Imagine my surprise when, after I purchased my copy of the Record late last week, I not only found a stick-on “Vote for Jill” ad right smack dab in the middle of the front page, but was also unable to remove the ad without rendering the paper unreadable. The placement of ads — political or otherwise — on the front page of a newspaper directly over the news stories themselves speaks volumes as to the priorities of the paper itself. In the Record’s case, I am sadly informed that income trumps informative news every time. Kirk Francis Langley

I’ll whine about spending money To the editor: I attended the Island County commissioners’ budget hearing recently. Commissioner Kelly Emerson remarked that her two colleagues had

STAFF

approved almost every tax, fee, assessment and regulation that ever was considered. She thought it wasn’t a good idea, both in general and in view of the recession. Commissioner Angie Homola thought it was a good idea. She praised the increases, said the programs made her feel good and began listing all the troubles county government has had. She seemed to be whining. If whining is now acceptable, let me do some from my end: I’m admonished that this and that program costs “only a latte a month.” But there are 30 programs; I’ve not had a latte in years; my coffee shop has gone out of business. I drink Costco bulk drip in my chilly room. When the housing bubble burst, my income dropped to a third. I downsized my lifestyle, reduced my expenses by two-thirds, and trained myself to think “survival” instead of “enjoyment.” All but one of my clients went out of business: their customers no longer receive their services, and the taxes they paid are no longer paid. I cut my fee by a quarter, and when a job runs over budget, I finish it for free. The value of my IRA dropped by a third, but at least my benefits were unaffected: I have no benefits.

Homola shed a tear for public servants, who are nice people and haven’t had a cost-of-living raise in years. Public servants, who are paid not from exchange of value as in the private sector but from tax takings under threat of the government gun, generally have higher salaries than comparable private-sector workers. I don’t want to deprive them of their salaries, but I’d prefer not to pay for services I don’t want: I feel like the little old lady whom the Boy Scout helped across the street. I didn’t want to cross that street. A discussion about the purpose of government is needed. Feeling good with other people’s money may be the wrong priority. The coming election offers the beginning of such a discussion. Jeff Lauderdale and Jill Johnson understand the difference between a government that protects natural rights and one that does things for (and to) people. I’m voting for them.

Price Johnson has the right qualities To the editor: The problems that face Island County are neither simple nor easy to fix. They are the result of some factors that can be controlled and others that require response at other levels before the county can do its part. I had the privilege of working with Helen Price Johnson when she was on the school board and I was superintendent of schools in the South Whidbey School District. I saw how aware she was of the diverse views of people in her community, what a good listener she was, how

decisive she was in difficult times, how intelligent she was in selecting among difficult options, how persistent she was in pursuing a vision of excellence for the future, how compassionate she was for the employees, how much she cared about the education of the children here, and how open she was to hear the views of others that opposed her own views. I am a Vietnam veteran and volunteer working with veterans here on South Whidbey. Helen cares deeply about veterans and their families. During the past six months, despite a demanding schedule of work and campaigning, she has been present at three activities held in our communities to honor the contributions of veterans. Helen is a person of the highest integrity. She is humble, positive, intelligent and has a work ethic that is

second to none. She takes very seriously her role to represent her constituents and that she is elected to make the best decisions possible for the residents of Island County. In Helen, we have a county commissioner who has the background and experience to lead us out of these difficult times and into a better tomorrow. Fred McCarthy, Ed.D. Langley

End front page stickers, or else To the editor: I am greatly disturbed at finding a political sticker slapped across the front page of my Record on Wednesday, especially a “Jill Johnson” sticker. Are you people serious? Are you that desperate for funds or inclined toward the Tea Party that much? I value my Record for local news, but if this happens again I will cancel immediately and I am not alone on South Whidbey. Ron Kasprisin Langley

Glad I lost to Sen. Haugen To the editor: Many years ago I ran for the state Legislature from our district and managed, despite being endorsed by two governors and a U.S. Senator, to come in third. Second place went to a Republican from Oak Harbor that governors Evans and Spellman classified as a “Troglodyte.” Trogs in history were barbarians who lived underground. The winner was a middleof-the-road Democrat from

Camano Island who had served on the school board, and a Scandihoovian, born and raised here, by the name of Mary Margaret Haugen. I’m glad I lost. Just near my home in Greenbank are a half dozen major accomplishments directly attributable to Haugen. For starters, the preservation of the Greenbank Farm, Keystone Spit and the Port Townsend ferry. And does anyone think that Nichols Brothers would have gotten work on five ferries if Haugen had not been chairwoman of the Senate Transportation Committee? Across the water, the restoration of the last historic resort in Puget Sound and its transformation into the state’s most popular new park, Cama Beach, was a pet project of hers. And every time we enjoy crab, we should thank Mary Margaret. In 1978 there was no crab fishery in Holmes Harbor because bottom draggers had wiped it out. But with an amendment Haugen pushed them out of Holmes Harbor and our island’s near shore areas, which is why we now have the richest crab fishery in the state. This year the choice is between Haugen and Barbara Bailey. Bailey has drawn a paycheck as our representative for 10 years, but I can’t think of one thing she has accomplished. To be fair, I’ve asked every one of her supporters that I’ve met to name one of her accomplishments. Oh, they’ve got lots of excuses, but when asked to specify just one concrete improvement Barbara Bailey has made to life here — they got nothing. Zero. Haugen is a tough act to

follow. She is probably the most effective representative we’ve ever had. Losing her would leave us about defenseless in Olympia. Weigh it up. Thom Gunn Greenbank

Commissioner’s facts off base To the editor: As a locally elected official I work with members of my community on many of the complex issues that challenge our governments during difficult times. In support of Island County, I respectfully offer a short “fact check” to some of the points raised in a recent opinion piece by Island County Commissioner Kelly Emerson. Commissioner Emerson wrote that we are pushing businesses, investors and families out of our county. Data available from the Island County Economic Development Council contradicts that claim. We, at the city and county level, have been working together with local business owners and entrepreneurs to sustain our economy through the most severe economic downturn in our memory. Island County’s unemployment rate is on average 1.2 percent lower than Skagit County’s; 0.6 percent lower than Snohomish’s. Permits for single family residences in unincorporated Island County increased in a slow but steady trend from early2009 to mid-2012 (the latest period for which data is available). Our county is not on a tax-and-spend binge. Our county has consistently followed state law to deal with the rising cost of essential

services. Remember Mr. Eynman: limiting increases to 1 percent of the revenue levied the preceding year? This limitation during upside-down economic times prevents our keeping up with inflation. Many Island County operating departments have the lowest staffing ratio per capita of any county in our state. Our county government is operating under a balanced, realistic budget in response to the hardest economic circumstances. Nevertheless, our government is under stress and our neighbors are hurting. We’re all living in tough times that more than ever require leaders who respect their peers and hear their constituents. This is not a time to yell “stop” as Commissioner Emerson suggests. This is the time to calmly speak the truth and move forward. Hal Seligson City Council of Langley

Mary Margaret is a listener To the editor: This is a response to a flyer stating that Mary Margaret Haugen isn’t listening to us. Yes, she is listening and has listened well in the past. Over the years several of us from this district have gone to Olympia on Faith Advocacy Day to meet with our senator and representatives. Mary Margaret Haugen has taken time out of her very busy schedule to meet and listen to us. Barbara Bailey has not. Karen Erlander Freeland

Sultan spoils South Whidbey homecoming in blowout BY BEN WATANABE Staff reporter LANGLEY — Fumbles, blocked punts, dropped passes and missed routes were a recipe for South Whidbey’s ill-fated homecoming loss to Sultan. The Falcons lost their fifth game in a row Friday night, the first loss to the Turks in several years. “Just for these seniors, you feel close to these guys,” said Falcon junior quarterback Nick French, who threw one touchdown and returned a kick for another. “This could be their final home game. We’re all family.” Waterman Field turned into Muddy Waterman Field as rains drenched the turf, players and homecoming court. The middle of the field became a 15-yard stretch of aromatic earth as cleats tore up the field. Sultan used the field conditions to its advantage, pounding the ball with running backs. That opened up a few select pass plays for the Turks, including a 42-yard touchdown toss by Turk junior quarterback Antonio Rivas to senior receiver Steven Branham. The 6-1 Turk wideout leaped over the smaller Falcon defensive back for the touchdown catch. “What hurt us was a few deep passes,” said Falcon

Special teams struggled to block Sultan all night. On the Falcons’ first possession, the Turks forced a punt from the South Whidbey 26-yard line. The Turks tipped Falcon senior Cameron Coupe’s punt, which wobbled down to their own 30-yard line. Sultan converted three first downs that resulted in a 10-yard touchdown run by Turk senior Bryce MacDicken.

“With the conditions, we figured it had to be a running game,” said Turk head coach Ben Murphy. “It worked out for us tonight.” Falcon senior Pat Monell blocked the extra point, which seemed to give South Whidbey some momentum. Falcon junior Nick Bennett returned the kickoff to the Falcon 29. After an incomplete deep pass from French, who played with his left hand

in a cast, to Bennett, the Turks recovered a fumble at the 35. “That quarterback with a broken hand, he dropped less snaps than our quarterback with two hands,” Murphy said. Sultan was pushed to firstand-24 on a holding penalty, after which Rivas attempted a long throw near the end zone that Coupe intercepted, one of the few receptions he had all night.

Falcon junior Nick Bennett hauls in a 30-yard touchdown pass from junior quarterback Nick French. “It’s really hard to get a good throw on this field right now,” Coupe said. “Then, if it is catchable, you’ve got slick gloves and the ball’s even more wet.” South Whidbey was able to get to their own 35-yard line, but French was sacked as the period expired, forcing South Whidbey to punt at the opening play of the second quarter. Turk senior Jay Leverett blocked Coupe’s punt, however, and returned it for a touchdown. Sultan’s two-point conversion run was

stopped short, but the Turks were ahead 19-0. The Falcons finally got on the board in the second quarter. South Whidbey drove from their 32-yard line and scored on a 30-yard pass from French to Bennett, but Leverett blocked Coupe’s extra point kick. “With the ball snap, trying to get a good hold on it and double teaming on the inside, that guy can get around,” Coupe said. Sultan responded with another touchdown pass from Rivas to Branham, this time 51 yards. Branham beat Falcon defensive back Cooper Nichols for the score. From there, the Turks never lost the lead and went on to pad the advantage with a fumble returned for a touchdown to make it 32-6. South Whidbey tried to mount a second half comeback. The Falcons put together one of their best drives early in the third quarter. French completed a pass to junior receiver Jordan Parrick, who had the ball stripped and recovered by the Turks. Sultan flipped that turnover into another touchdown. Rivas threw his third touchdown pass of the night, this one to Leverett for 36 yards. South Whidbey scored its final points on a 90-yard kickoff return by French.

Stelling, Zink finish top-10 at Cascade Conference championship BY BEN WATANABE Staff reporter LANGLEY — They set their best times on their home course. Usually, that means a first-place finish for cross country runners. South Whidbey’s top cross country runners couldn’t catch their Cascade Conference competition, however. That opened the way Saturday for a King’s runner and a Cedarcrest runner to claim the girls and boys individual Cascade Conference titles. “I was prepared for mud everywhere,” said Falcon senior Nora Felt. “It was surprisingly dry.” The Falcon girls finished in third place behind Cedarcrest and King’s. Once again, the Falcon girls team’s strength was its seniors. Lillianna Stelling, a senior, finished third out of 70 girls in 19:43.68. It was her fastest time on the South Whidbey High School course that winds around the school and into

Senior Anna Hood finished in 22:32.44. Freshman Anna Justus rounded out the varsity racers with her personal best time of 23:41. Cole Zink, a sophomore, paced the Falcon boys in sixth place.

Bailey aims to dislodge Haugen for 10th District seat BY DICK CLEVER Special to the Record For the first time in two decades, state Sen. Mary Margaret Haugen faces a battle against an election opponent who can match her both in campaign dollars and name recognition. The 10th Legislative District Democrat was bested by 5 percentage points in the August primary election by Republican state Rep. Barbara Bailey. They were the only candidates on the primary ballot. The race is one of three Senate contests statewide that could tilt control of that

Barbara Bailey body to Republicans. Bailey, 68, has made that prospect a centerpiece of her campaign.

South Whidbey School District #206 PO Box 346 Langley, WA 98260

South Whidbey SchoolS

In accordance with the Individuals with Disabilities Education Act of 2004, the South Whidbey School District conducts “Child Find Developmental Screenings” each school year. Screenings are completed for children ages 3-5 residing within school district boundaries; including students attending private schools. Our next screening day is November 1. If you have a concern about your child’s development, ages 3-5 and would like to have them screened by our speech language pathologist, school psychologist and occupational therapist, please call Marie at the school district office 360-221-6100 for more information. For children ages birth to 2 the school district provides a program through the Toddler Learning Center and they can be reached at 360-221-6808 ext. 4656.

What Bailey has not highlighted in her campaign is Haugen’s crucial 25th vote in the state Senate for a bill legalizing same-sex marriage. Haugen announced early in the 2012 legislative session that she, after much soul-searching, had decided to cast the deciding vote for the measure. The decision was difficult for Haugen, who said that her hesitation was as much generational as it was religious. She was under pressure at the time from her party caucus, religious conservatives and gay-rights activists. “I have very strong Christian beliefs, and personally I have always said when I accepted the Lord, I became more tolerant of others,” Haugen said in a statement issued Jan. 23. “I stopped judging people and try to live by the Golden Rule.” Haugen’s vote in favor of the bill set the stage for Referendum 74, a ballot measure that, if passed, would keep in place the law allowing same-sex marriage. Haugen, 71, is seeking her sixth term in the Senate. If she succeeds she will likely continue her chairman-

Mary Margaret Haugen ship of the powerful Senate Transportation Committee, which generates the $9 billion biennial budget that funds highways and the state ferry system. Haugen’s hold on the 10th District has been unshakable for five terms. She says she wins elections by paying close attention to the needs of her district. Despite a late start in her campaign, Haugen says she expects to do much better in the general election than her primary results might indicate. “Democrats tend not to turn out for uncontested primaries,” Haugen said, point-

ing to her ramped up campaign effort post-primary. “I hadn’t spent much on my campaign before then.” She also notes that she was the target of some “nasty hit” mailings just before the primary, paid for by the state Senate Republican Campaign Committee, that distorted her record. Another tough advertisement — this one directly from the Bailey campaign — hit district mail boxes in recent days, attacking Haugen for her opposition to Initiative 1053 requiring a two-thirds supermajority vote for approval of tax increases. Haugen says the state Constitution requires only a simple majority to pass bills in the Legislature and the supermajority requirement on tax measures has forced severe cuts in vital programs — especially education. “The supermajority basically gives 18 members of the Senate one-and-a-half votes on tax measures,” she said, 18 representing one third of the Senate’s 49 members. A case now before the state Supreme Court could, for the first time, result in a ruling on the constitutionality of I-1053. Opponents of the initiative argue that a supermajority can be imposed only through a constitutional amendment, not the initiative or referendum process. Bailey, who has held the 10th District Position 2 House seat for the past 10 years, thinks she has a good shot at winning, especially on issues like I-1053. A key argument she makes to the district’s voters is that she could help the GOP win control of the

Senate. Asked if the loss of Haugen as the powerful chair of the Senate Transportation Committee would be detrimental to the district, Bailey responded with an emphatic, “Not one bit.” But Haugen says that Bailey’s desire to convert the Senate to Republican control is not a good enough reason to unseat her. She says Bailey too often votes with her party over the needs of the district. “What is important is what best serves the interests of the 10th District, which has been my primary concern,” Haugen said. Bailey says she cares about the district as much as Haugen, but as a member of the House minority party has not always been in a position to deliver on legislation. Bailey said the Legislature’s chaotic budget process leads to uncertainty in the business community and puts a damper on the creation of new jobs. “We have a taxing system that is onerous on small businesses,” Bailey said. Bailey has been endorsed by the Association of Washington Business, which rates her voting record on AWB issues at a lifetime measure of 91 percent. Haugen, who often votes against her own party’s positions, is rated at 71 percent in favor of the group’s issues. Haugen points to her support from Republicans, such as former Washington Secretary of State Ralph Munro. She also has the backing of Curt Johnson, a Skagit See 10TH District, A9

are said to be in play for party control of the Senate. The two women are not that far apart in age, but very much in their backgrounds. Haugen’s story is that of a blue collar homemaker who was born and raised on Camano Island, married there, gave birth to four children, and operated a beauty salon out of her home for 20 years. Her formal education ended with her 1959 graduation from high school in Stanwood and, that same year, from Mount Vernon Beauty School. She served on the Stanwood School Board for 10 years and in 1982 was elected to the state House of Representatives. She moved to the Senate in 1992. Bailey, a graduate of State

University of New York, has made her professional mark as a consultant and trainer in the hotel industry. Before being elected to the House in 2002, she was a member on the Oak Harbor Comprehensive Planning Task Force and the Island County Joint Committee on Tourism. She and her Navy veteran husband live in Oak Harbor and are the parents of four adult children.

“The sheriff’s office is underfunded. That’s what people are talking about, not another planner,” she said. “What people want is a safe place to live,” she added. Instead of a planner, Johnson said she would have returned more funding to law-and-justice departments, such as a deputy, prosecutor or patrol car.

READY TO MOVE?

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

An issue that Johnson has emphasized on the campaign trail is “tone.” She said she can end the constant in-fighting on the board, which she describes as unprofessional, counterproductive and hard on employee morale. She faults all the commissioners — Homola, Kelly Emerson and Helen Price Johnson

Floats, flowers, food and fashion were all present at South Whidbey High School’s homecoming. Before South Whidbey students could hit the auxiliary gym for the homecoming dance, there was lots of work to be done. And few people know that quite like the florists at Flowers by the Bay in Freeland. The day of the dance, Saturday, shop owner Tracy Schultz and Ashley Morrison were busy making corsages and boutonnieres. About 25 percent of all their homecoming flower orders are late notice, either the day before or the day of the dance. Schultz, a pro’s pro of flower arrangements, knew better and made a handful of extras — which take about 15 minutes to assemble — just in case some students were swept up in their other preparations. “They’ll keep coming in right up until 5 o’clock,” Schultz said. “It’s amazing.” The shop also made courtesy calls for flowers still in the store by 4 p.m. Schultz said she was happy to help first-time dance-goers through the flower process. “For a lot of these kids, it’s their first corsage or first boutonniere,” she said.

County moves to secure free beach BY JUSTIN BURNETT Staff reporter The clock is ticking to get a prospective beach donation on Mutiny Bay into public ownership and county officials said last week that they are gearing up to get the deal done themselves, before the opportunity slips away. Bill Oakes, director of Island County Public Works, said Friday he had been hoping that one of two public agencies on South Whidbey would accept the property outright, but those prospects aren’t materializing. At least not quickly enough. According to Oakes, the owner wants the deal done by the end of the year. That leaves little time to satisfy all the legal requirements needed to secure the property into public ownership. “Someone needs to get started to make this happen,” Oakes said. “If that has to be the county, with our two partial people, we will drop everything to make that happen because it’s that important.” The property in question, which Oakes called a “gem,” is adjacent to the Mutiny Bay boat launch on Robinson Road and includes nearly 300 feet of sandy shoreline. While it is already widely used by the public, owner Frank Robinson, founder of the Robinson Helicopter Company, wants to ensure it is available for future generations by permanently preserving it under public ownership. Public Works, the umbrella agency for the county’s parks department, is struggling to make ends meet and Oakes had hoped either the South Whidbey Parks and Recreation District or the Port of South Whidbey

Island County officials are planning to move forward with a beach donation on Mutiny Bay. would take the reins on the property. Although there appears to be some confusion over the matter, Oakes said park district officials initially communicated that they didn’t want the property, at least outright, so he pinned his hopes on the port. Port commissioners did discuss the issue at a recent meeting but, with a range of concerns, the board tabled the matter for further consideration. While it now seems as though the county will have to accept the property to meet the deadline, parks district Commissioner Don Wood said the board is, and has always been, interested in the Robinson beach. Just not immediately. “Yes, we’re definitely interested,” said Wood, who is also chairman of the board. “We’re just not in the position to take on that property now.” Wood said district officials had believed from the beginning that the county was going to do the work to get the property into public ownership and then discussions would begin about

future management. Like the county, the district is struggling with budget troubles of its own and has more property than it can easily handle. In fact, the district recently accepted stewardship of three state-owned lakes on South Whidbey when county officials said they could not longer manage them. District Director Terri Arnold said that has come at some expense and she has concerns about taking on the Robinson property, which is located a long way from the district’s headquarters on Maxwelton Road. “This would add to that maintenance burden,” Arnold said. Wood envisions a partnership, possibly among all three public agencies, for the Robinson property. He is hoping that everyone can sit at a table soon and discuss the property’s future. However, if such a venture proves unworkable, Wood said the district would strongly look at sole stewardship. “We would definitely, seriously consider it, yes,” he said.

After operating from an office in Coupeville for the past 2 ½ years, the South Whidbey Record is coming home. Record staff will move into a new office in Langley in November. Jim Larsen, who headed the Record newsroom for most of the past 30 years, will return to his post as editor. He will hand over his role as editor of Oak Harbor’s Whidbey News-Times, which he edited for 10 years, to Megan Hansen, who also will take over editorial leadership of The Whidbey Examiner. “My aim is to make sure Whidbey Island’s community newspapers are engaged and connected with the communities they cover,” said Kasia Pierzga, publisher of the Record, the News-Times and the Examiner. “Returning the Record to its home community in South Whidbey is a step toward achieving that goal.” Larsen said the Record got its start in Langley and he’s happy the paper is returning to its roots. “We’ll still be covering all of South Whidbey,” he emphasized, “but from our traditional location.” The Record moved to Bayview for several years before joining the Whidbey News-Times in a common Coupeville office which opened April 1, 2010. The new Record office will be housed at 211 Second St., Suite 8, in the building in

Record editor Jim Larsen Langley Village that previously housed a retail shop called Chic Debris and before that, Island Travel. An open house “homecoming” celebration will be held at a date in the near future. To contact the Record, call 221-5300 or tollfree 800-359-3864.

Accountant red-pencils the Greenbank Farm BY NATHAN WHALEN Staff reporter After noting what she believes are problems with financial statements of the Greenbank Farm Management Group, a prominent Whidbey Island accountant resigned as chairperson of a volunteer group examining the operations of the publicly owned farm. Georgia Gardner, a Coupeville accountant who is a former state representative and current Whidbey General Hospital commissioner, resigned in early October after she wrote a letter to the management group’s board of trustees about her concerns. “I hereby notify you that, in my professional opinion, there are errors, omissions and/or inconsistencies in your federal and state tax returns, federal forms 990 and 990T and in schedules purporting to be financial statements issued by the GFMG,” Gardner wrote in a letter to the Management Group Board of Trustees. “I believe there are also omissions with regard to Island County taxes. I believe these errors have sufficient impact that you should seek legal counsel about the remedies,” Gardner wrote. When called Monday asking for elaboration about her opinion, she refused to provide details, arguing that the letter was a private correspondence. The Whidbey News-Times obtained a copy of Gardner’s letter to the Greenbank Farm Management Group through a public records request to the Port of Coupeville, which owns the Greenbank Farm. In a written statement, Michael Stansbury, president of the Greenbank Farm Management Group, said farm management,

“cannot at this point know with any certainty what her concerns were.” Stansbury said he has contacted Gardner seeking more details so they can be addressed with the executive planning group and the Port of Coupeville. “Our board is mystified by her reference to unspecified financial and tax issues, especially in light of an IRS audit of our 2008 filings, completed in the fall of 2011, which confirmed that we had no tax due for that year,” Stansbury said in his letter. Stansbury did not return a phone call seeking elaboration to his statement. Gardner addressed her letter to the Greenbank Farm Management Group Board of Trustees. She also sent copies to Marshall Bronson, Benye Weber and Laura Blankenship, the three commissioners of the Port of Coupeville. The remaining eight members of the Executive Planning Group also received copies of the letter. They include Rick Abraham, Kyle Waterman, Val Hillers, Gordon McMillan, Janet Burchfield, Fran Einterz, Jim Phay and Robert Pelant. “It surprised us because it’s an area that we haven’t looked at,” said Jim Patton, executive director for the Port of Coupeville, referring to Gardner’s letter. He noted that the Management Group is a lessee to the Port of Coupeville. The port pays the group nearly $50,000 each year to oversee the agricultural, recreational and environmentally sensitive properties located at the 500-acre Greenbank Farm. The current agreement goes from April 1, 2004 to March 31, 2014.

The Greenbank Farm Management Group also oversees the commercial areas at the Greenbank Farm. The group has the right to sublease the commercial spaces and manage events throughout the year while the port is responsible for approving tenants as well as maintenance of the infrastructure and buildings at the publicly owned farm. Under this arrangement the management group doesn’t pay any rent to the port for their oversight of the leased areas at the farm. Patton said he performs monthly audits on how the Greenbank Farm Management Group spends the $49,950 fee to manage the non-commercial lands. Because the Management Group’s arrangement with the Port of Coupeville ends in early 2014, Port leaders are looking at how to continue operating the farm after that date. The port commissioners in May 2012 appointed nine residents to a committee to examine the operations of the Greenbank Farm Management Group. That group is tasked to basically come up with a recommendation about whether to continue working with the management group, find a nonprofit or a for-profit entity to manage the property or have the port directly oversee operations at the farm. Rick Abraham, who took over after Gardner resigned, noted the difficulties facing the group in forming a recommendation. “This has proven to be a difficult and time-consuming process for our members,” Abraham said during a Port of Coupeville meeting earlier in October. He said there were differences of opinion on the board and a lack of clear direction. After interviewing port officials, he mentioned that two port commissioners and the executive director wanted the volunteer group to examine the management group’s finances while a third commissioner thought the group was over-reaching. After the meeting, it was determined the group will continue its look into the group’s finances. Abraham said the volunteer group is committed to seeing this process through and the group will advise the Port as soon as they can target a date for completion. While the volunteer group continues its work, the management group will try to meet with Gardner to get specifics about her concerns. Farm management sent a letter to Gardner asking her for more details about her concerns.

Duty

Justin Burnett / The Record

Langley Police Chief Randy Heston waits for traffic to pass after giving a warning to a speeder on Saratoga Road. The city’s 2013 budget is beginning to take shape and the City Council has given the go ahead to hire another officer, who will help patrol and work in local schools.

CONTINUED FROM A1

Right now, it’s usually just Heston and his duties as chief often keep him chained to his desk. Having someone else to go on patrol will be a big help, he said. Per haps most beneficial, another officer will result in the establishment of a resource officer at the school district. It’s not yet clear just where they would be but early conversations point to the middle school, Kwarsick said. The mayor believes this is the next step in community oriented policing, a model of law enforcement geared toward small towns. “It’s an example of alternative roles for police officers in the community,” Kwarsick said. A school officer would serve a variety of functions, from investigating crimes on school property to being a resource for parents and staff. The officer may even give some classroom education presentations. But most importantly, Heston said they can be a

nests and feathers, including a wing from a barred owl. Jenny Brown swung the wing and asked students to listen for the sound — there was none, she said, because the owl needs to be silent when it hunts. One student examined a feather with an electronic magnifying glass and reported that he saw lots of lines, referring to the strands in the feather. After the kickoff, Woods

role model for students and help them deal with emerging problems, such as harassment on popular social media websites like Facebook. “Cyber-bullying is at the top of the list,” Heston said. School officials are also supportive of the idea. “I applaud the concept and placement of an SRO (school resource officer) in our district,” wrote district Superintendent Jo Moccia, in an email to the council. “I have worked in districts where this has been a very effective service to students.” According to Heston, the position will likely rotate among his officers, allowing each to engage and form relationships with students. Some special training will be required, however. If the position is memorialized in an approved budget, the plan is to hire a commissioned officer, as opposed to a new recruit that would have to spend months at the academy. That will put boots on the ground all the faster, Kwarsick said. “Our goal is to have someone in the office by January,” the mayor said.

“It’s a taste of what’s coming.” Leslie Woods SWES teacher

had her students write about the experience in their science journals. She was surprised to see diverse interests as students were evenly divided between the five stations. “That’s exactly what we want, is them thinking, ‘How does this affect me? How can I use this in my life?’” Woods said.
