One arrested, released in Oak Harbor assault By JESSIE STENSLAND Staff reporter

The Island County prosecutor decided not to charge a man who inflicted potentially fatal injuries on 23-year-old Oak Harbor resident Chris Cooper during a Nov. 17 confrontation. Cooper’s family and friends said they are outraged by the decision, but hold out hope that a case can be made and that Cooper will pull through. Cooper, however, remains in a coma at Harbor view Medical Center. His father, Terry Cooper, said the young man may not survive. “The doctor said there’s no sign of recovery,” he said Tuesday morning, adding that he should have results from another

round of tests this week. Cooper was found lying unconscious in the parking lot on Pioneer Way in Oak Harbor — in the vicinity of the Pony Express business and Whidbey Furniture — at about 2:21 a.m. on Saturday, Nov. 17. He was airlifted to Harbor view because of a traumatic head injury. The Oak Harbor police arrested 29-year-old Jason Ellis, of Oak Harbor, on suspicion of first-degree assault Saturday, Nov. 24. The prosecutor’s office released him Monday morning. Island County Prosecutor Greg Banks said there was substantial evidence that Ellis acted See COOPER, A10

Oak Harbor Lions Club member Conrad Lokanis holds one of the Christmas trees being sold near the chamber of commerce. The organization is selling trees to raise money for Lions Club programs and local charities.

Tree sales go toward Lions projects By NATHAN WHALEN Staff reporter

The holiday spirit and community giving are alive and well near the chamber of commerce office in Oak Harbor. Hundreds of Christmas trees are stacked in the wooded area next to the Greater Oak Harbor Chamber of Commerce’s Highway 20. The conifers are being sold by members of the Oak Harbor Lions Club. “Last year, we sold out really early,” Lion Conrad Lokanis said Tuesday

morning. Club members started selling Christmas trees Saturday and they will continue to sell them daily through Dec. 23 or until they sell out. Lokanis said members were selling until the week before Christmas, but in previous years, they were selling close to the holiday. The Oak Harbor Lions Club is selling about 1,000 trees that were fresh cut from Deming, Wash. The club is offering five different varieties and they range in height from three-feet to nine feet-tall.

The proceeds from the Christmas tree sale benefit local Lions Club and community projects. The Oak Harbor Lions Club supports hearing and vision programs, Camp Horizon, and members have supported such organizations as the Whidbey General Hospital Foundation, the Puget Sound Blood Center, the North Whidbey Help House, Relay for Life and the Special Olympics. The club also is visible in the community through its fruit sales that take place in

front of Rite Aid during the summer and through placing flags alongside main roads during patriotic events. Christmas tree sales take place 10 a.m. to 7 p.m. daily through Dec. 23 or until sold out. The trees are located in the park next to the chamber of commerce on Highway 20 in Oak Harbor.

Deputies guild sues county for public records violations By JESSIE STENSLAND Staff reporter

The guild representing deputies with the Island County Sheriff’s Office has filed a lawsuit against the county for allegedly violating the state’s Open Public Records Act and blocking arbitration. James Cline, the Seattle attorney representing the Island County Deputy Sheriff’s Guild, filed a complaint for contempt, declaratory and injunctive relief and damages in Snohomish County Superior Court Nov. 16. The guild is the exclusive bargaining unit represent-

ing commissioned deputies through the rank of lieutenant. The deputies have been working without a contract since December 2008. The guild and county engaged in dispute resolution through the Public Employment Relations Commissioners, though the complaint doesn’t explain the nature of the dispute. The process didn’t lead to a resolution, the complaint states, but resulted in a certification that allows “interest arbitration.” The complaint alleges that county representatives promised several times to select on

arbitrator, but failed to follow through each time. As a result, the guild filed a public records request with the county on June 25, requesting documents regarding “wide-ranging information related to the County’s budget and other documents related to pending labor contract negotiations.” Under the public records law, the county generally has five business days to respond to a request by either providing the records, acknowledging receipt and providing a reasonable estimate of a time for an answer or denying the request.

The complaint alleges that the county initially acknowledged receiving the request and promised to give a fuller response, but with no specific date, and then didn’t respond again. After receiving no further response, the guild repeated the request on Sept. 1. After allegedly receiving no response again, a guild representative contacted the prosecutor on Sept. 20 and threatened to file unless the information was produced. The guild received a reply that the human resources director was working on it, but again with no production date.

According to the lawsuit, the guild still has not received any further response from the county. In addition, the complaint alleges that county representatives now refuse to select an arbitrator. Melanie Bacon, the county’s human resources director, said she couldn’t discuss pending litigation. She said the county and guild representatives are scheduled to meet to discuss contract resolution next month, but she said it appears that arbitration is likely. “We all believe that’s the direction we are headed,” she said, “but it doesn’t have to go

there.” Bacon said she couldn’t speak about the specifics of the labor dispute, but acknowledged that the resolution could impact the county’s budget. The lawsuit states that the guild is entitled to interest and double wages for delays in the arbitration process by the county’s refusal to participate, as well as statutory penalties, attorney’s fees and costs. The lawsuit also asks for an order of contempt against the county and injunctions restraining the county from withholding public records and refusing to participate in arbitration.

Access, aquaculture dominate public SMP hearing By KATHY REED Staff reporter

After nearly three hours of public comment in Coupeville last week, Island County Commissioners are still not ready to make a decision on a proposed Shoreline Master Program update. Commissioners continued the second of two public hearings to 2 p.m. Tuesday, Nov. 27, after the News-Times went to press, to give citizens one last chance to weigh in on the issue and to give themselves and county staff time to sort through the mountain of suggestions brought before them. Public access — a topic that has been of particular concern to residents — continued to dominate most of the comments at the Nov. 19 hearing. County Planning Director Bob Pederson told the board staff had looked at all the criteria and identified 11 more potential public access sites. Several residents said it’s not fair to single out owners of waterfront property to add more access when the county isn’t even sure how many access points currently exist or where they are located. “There is a book by Washington State University Extension (“Getting to the Water’s Edge”) that lists all the access points in Island County,” said Coupeville resident Gary Wray. “There are 57 public access points on Whidbey Island and 10 on Camano.”

“That’s one access point for every four miles of shoreline. But if we can’t maintain what we’ve already got, why do we need more?” “If I had 67 apple trees and I wasn’t maintaining them well or caring for them, would I plant 11 more trees, or would I take care of the 67 I already have?” asked West Beach Road resident Craig McKenzie. Jeff Lauderdale, who ran against Commissioner Helen Price Johnson in the recent election, said it’s too late for the state to rectify the mistake it made when it sold waterfront property to residents years ago. “In my world, you don’t get a do-over when you sell something,” he said. “You’re asking people to give up the ‘private’ portion of their property. You need to really think about that.” “There aren’t a lot of entities speaking up for the property owners’ rights,” said Jason Joiner, head of the Whidbey Island Jason Joiner speaks to Island County Commissioners during a Association of Realtors.

Penn Cove mussels aid in research project By ELISABETH MURRAY Staff Reporter

On a recent sunny day, a group of volunteers were bundled up to insulate against the brisk winds that whipped across Penn Cove. The graduates of the 2012 class of Washington State University Island County Extension Beach Watchers dipped their gloved hands into bowls of cold water and pulled mollusk after mollusk out to take measurements. Over the course of almost two weeks in late October, the volunteers packaged approximately 7,500 mussels from Penn Cove for delivery. Unlike ones destined for the plates and bowls of hungry eaters, these mussels will return to Washington waters to continue filter feeding as part of a research project to

learn more about the health of the state’s marine environment. This study conducted by the Washington Department of Fish and Wildlife will allow scientists to determine the extent and magnitude of nearshore contamination, said Project Manager Jennifer Lanksbury. It will also establish a baseline, something that is especially important should a disaster occur. The data will also be provided to state legislators, the decision makers whose choices can impact the health of nearshore waters, Lanksbury said. Ian Jefferds of Penn Cove Shellfish in Coupeville donated native Penn Cove mussels for the project. Four mesh bags will be

installed in each predatorproof test cage at 113 research locations. A grant from the federal Environmental Protection Agency paid for 60 of the sites, and the remainder were sponsored by outside groups for $1,300 per site. “This was a booming success,” said Lanksbury about asking for involvement. “We doubled our capacity.” After about 10 days of rest in Penn Cove’s familiar waters to recover from handling, the mussels will be ready for transfer. For two months, from midNovember through mid-January, the mussels will live as mussels do — they will open their shells a bit to let in some water, and filter out food. In the study, everything will be kept constant except

for the location they will be placed, and as a result, the water quality they will live in. And while chowing-down, they will be ingesting everything — both good and bad — in the water. The two months gives the mollusks ample time to ingest any chemicals in their surroundings. The mussels will be tested for contaminants such as pesticides, flame retardants, oil and metals, like mercury. Jefferd’s contribution will travel throughout the Puget Sound region, with eight test cages remaining in waters off of Whidbey Island and two

Letters to the editor Termination

Review aquatic club financials Regarding the ongoing controversy surrounding recently fired North Whidbey Aquatic Club coach Neil Romney and administrative assistant Vikki Robinson, I can’t help but wonder what is really going on here. Mr. Romney apparently is a good coach, as his supporters have voiced, and North Whidbey Park and Recreation District Director Bill Walker, does not dispute that. So the issue must be elsewhere. Doesn’t that always mean — follow the money? Didn’t Mr. Romney admit that he was fired for insubordination because he wouldn’t provide Mr. Walker access to the swim team’s financial information? Didn’t Ms. Robinson also admit that she was fired for the same reason? It doesn’t take much imagination to see that Romney’s explanation that he was fired for retaliation is simply a smokescreen to attempt to divert public attention away from whatever he is trying to hide. Likewise, Robinson’s explanation that she “wanted time to find out if it was legal to give him her password to the database” is equally absurd. As a professional database manager, I know it is not illegal for a director to have bookkeeping access to one of his own programs. The only thing more ridiculous than using this as an excuse is to think people will actually believe it. Second, anyone who has ever used a team or club database knows that you never have to give out your own password to permit access

— all you have to do is give administrative rights to the person who needs access; in fact, for security reasons, you would never give out your own password! If Mr. Walker didn’t understand this aspect of online platforms, surely someone who had used it for four years (as Robinson apparently did) would have. Open the books! Let’s see what Robinson was concerned about sharing and what Romney claims is the cause of the firing. As Julie Wilson so eloquently stated, the taxpayers do deserve transparency. And since they are subsidizing the club to some degree, and since these are, therefore, public records, lets view them! My guess is that there is a reason why Romney and Robinson wanted to hide the books from their boss. Susan Grayce Seattle

Swim program is a tremendous asset After surviving Hurricane Sandy, a brutal Nor’easter and 13 days without power, cable, phones and rationed gasoline, our Long Island family thought we’d get a pass on bad news for a little while. Our hopes were dashed when I visited the Whidbey News-Times website and saw the lead story on Coach Neil Romney’s firing. To say we were shocked is simply an understatement. Neil Romney, in our estimation, is not only one of the finest coaches and mentors in youth sports, but he runs the best youth program on Whidbey Island.

When we moved to Long Island, N.Y. last year, this paper printed my sentiments on the difficulty of leaving Whidbey. I mentioned then how hard it was to pull the boys from the NWAC swim program. I didn’t go into great detail at the time, but the reason leaving that team was so difficult is that I knew we’d never find a coach as dedicated and competent as Neil. He has the ability to condition and train athletes to a level I’ve never seen before, or since, and he can do it at all age levels. Neil is a true coaching

professional. He strives for excellence in all that he does and demands as much from himself as he does from his swimmers. But what separates Neil from the countless other coaches I’ve seen through the years is his determined focus to make his swimmers successful in the pool and in life. I don’t know Bill Walker and I certainly don’t have all the closed door “executive session” details of what is happening within the North Whidbey Park and Recreation District, but in my opinion they fired the best asset they had for reasons far more personal than professional. Three of those five commissioners are also aquatic club parents. They may think the grass will be greener for their kids with someone perhaps a little

less competitive, someone who focuses more on “fun” and less on performance, but that just simply won’t be the case. Athlete’s ultimately have the most fun when they’re having success and in swimming success is born from grueling workouts pushed by a coach not from smiling encouragement from a fun “pool monitor.” Some of the parents, including several of the current commissioners, have suggested that Neil focuses too much on the fast swimmers and not enough on the rest of the team — nonsense. Swim coaches across the country deal with this very common and selfish complaint from parents who wrongly think that if the coach just gave their child a little more attention they’d be the next Michael Phelps or

Missy Franklin. The truth is that fast swimmers beget fast swimmers. It’s like a ride in the left lane during rush hour. That’s why so many international swimmers train in the United States rather than at home. Aquajets is a competitive swim team, this paper has printed those words hundreds of times at the end of nearly every swim article, yet some team parents still seem to miss that point. This is a great program and a tremendous asset to the Whidbey community and Neil Romney is the reason it is so good. Mr. Walker and the commissioners made a big mistake in firing Neil and Vicki Robinson. Hopefully they’re big enough to correct it. Tom Tack Dix Hills, N.Y.

more Letters to the editor Termination

Thanks

Turmoil a direct result of director

Thank you for your veteran support

Norm Haverman’s letter to the editor on Nov. 24 begs a response. Are Mrs. Schroeder and Mrs. Pape concerned that what has happened at NWPRD has hurt the swim team kids and hurt the community? Yes. Is it shameful that they are courageously speaking out and seeking the truth? No. The great public outcry over the recent events that have unfolded at the North Whidbey Parks and Recreation District is precisely due to the deafening silence in regard to what the “actual issue” is. What has happened just doesn’t add up. Why would Neil Romney and Vikki Robinson be terminated so rapidly, severely, immediately and without notice? These are two people who have poured their heart and soul into a program for several years and built it into a model of success. Common decency dictates that termination of this type of employee would include a transition period. Good leadership understands that a transition of this magnitude be handled in a manner that is in the best interest of the swim kids and ensures minimal impact on the program and the community. This didn’t happen. Why? These are questions that have not been answered. So, we are left with appearances. It appears that Mr. Romney and Mrs. Robinson were issued a summary termination without valid reasons. It appears that this is a simple matter of a personality conflict that could have been resolved. It appears that the director has been given full authority over the activities of the district, but is not being held responsible for the damage his hasty actions have created. The turmoil that has plagued the board and the community appears to be a direct result of the director’s actions. The director speaks only of bringing the North Whidbey Aquatic Club into the future. Yet to many of us, the future of the club looks more like a giant leap backwards.

The members of Disabled American Veterans Chapter 47 would like to thank the local Oak Harbor businesses: Ace Hardware, Applebee’s, Saar’s Market and Walmart for supporting our annual Forget-Me-Not drive. We are grateful to the citizens of Whidbey Island and surrounding communities for donating so generously on Veterans Day. All donations received will go towards purchase of a new van. The van transports veterans from Island County and four other counties up and down the I-5 corridor to the Seattle VA Medical Center, Monday through Friday. Regulations dictate that for the safety of all motorists the van may not be used for transportation beyond 200,000 miles; currently our van has 140,000 miles. We have approximately one more year of usage before we will need to replace the van. Currently we are averaging 100 veteran riders per month; if you are a veteran needing a ride to the VAMC please call 257-4801 between the hours of 8 a.m. and 4 p.m., Monday through Friday. As we strive to provide services we are always in need of Volunteer Drivers and Chapter Service Officers. If you would like more information on volunteering your time please call the office an speak to a service afficer. It is our privilege to live in such a giving community that supports its veterans. Thank you.

Politics

Gay marriage is not Haugen’s problem Could it be that the voters were fed up with Senator Mary Margaret Haugen’s propensity for pork barrel politics? Could it be that after her long term in the office the Senator was out of good ideas? It would seem that by the election results the voters were tired of the tax-andspend policy of her party. Could it be that her opponent ran a better campaign stating what her vision was for the future of her district

rather than point out on what she had done in the past? I find it strange that the Whidbey News-Times has chosen to publish an article on the loser’s complaints of losing the election because of the new senator’ tactics when her staff used the very same against her opponent. But it does point out the bias of the paper and it’s leftleaning staff. The bright side is that Haugen will have more time with her husband. Larry Ogle Coupeville

No time before financial ruin There are well written explanations of the United States fiscal cliff online and I strongly advise every reader to read it. We have only days left before it hits the fan. Congress and the president are the new stars of “American Shores.” We the people need to contact them in any manner possible before there is a run on the banks, stock market tanks and way of life is ruined. Richard Mack Oak Harbor

Will levy increase to cover repairs? From my review of the North Whidbey Park and Recreation District’s annual budget on their website, it appears the aquatic club and running club members have been subsidized hundreds of dollars per member yearly from the annual property levy. Apparently some of the club members are from Coupeville and areas of Island County not subject to the park district levy. The levy district subject to the property tax to support the pool extends from just south of Oak Harbor to the north end of Whidbey Island, the rest of the island property owners do not contribute to the pool levy but use it and participate in the subsidized clubs. I believe the levy on north end property owners is meant for operation and maintenance of the pool. Recent board minutes indicate there are some expensive pool maintenance and potential equipment replacements which have been put off for years and not budgeted.

Will the north end property owners be asked for added levy taxes in the future to maintain pool and to continue subsidizing about 130 private club members thousands of dollars yearly? Richard Fort Oak Harbor

Flashing traffic lights don’t work I didn’t want to write this, but as you can see I just couldn’t take it anymore. What a waist of our money. Really! I’m talking about the two digital speed limit signs on Loerland Lane. The speed limit is 30 until you come up the hill going toward Swantown then it slows to 25, and the other one coming off Swantown on to Loerland. All 25! What is that supposed to mean? Slow down and go the speed limit? Right, because it might just mean that it is an active residential area. These flashing speed limit signs don’t make the cars slow down. I can stand there and watch on a daily bases, car after car ignore the flashing light that means slow down cause they are over the speed limit. They don’t. Some are going as much as 45 mph. And when they come up to the flashing signs, there are no break lights. They don’t care! Nothing is going to happen to them and they know it. Maybe I’m wrong but I think it would have been cheaper for the police to hang out on the side of the road for a few days and make a mint passing out tickets. And just then maybe the speeders would learn to obe y the speed limit on Loerland. Does anyone check those machines to see if it is slowing the cars down? I think if they did, they would know it not working. Put a camera in these and start giving tickets. The people who speed know they can. This is an active residential area where we walk our dogs and the kids play sometimes out in the street. It’s not going to take long to hurt someone or kill someone’s dog or cat. But I do want to thank those who do respect the speed limit. Thank you! I think I am going to have to stand out by one of the signs and take my own pictures showing the lights

flashing and the cars speed limit pop up and the license plate of the persons doing it on a daily bases. Then give the police all the pictures so they realize how much money they could be making. Can the police give the speeders a ticket then? Anyone have any decent suggestions? Lynn Schofield Oak Harbor

Objectivity

Be objective with levy coverage

impression of how you are going to handle this school levy issue fairly. If I am for the levy and send you a letter — whammo — published, bronzed and the parade begins. If I send in a letter with facts and figures I would like justified before forming an opinion — whammo — in the trash bin. Ahh! Journalism at its best. Do not disturb the masses with facts and figures but go with the “it’s for the kids” route. As President Reagan is quoted as saying — “Mr. Grobachev tear down this wall” — I would say Whibey News-Times be objective.

School board to meet with area representatives By NATHAN WHALEN Staff reporter

With the election over, school leaders on North Whidbey are looking to meet and talk with their new legislators. The Oak Harbor School Board in early December will meet with local state representatives representing Whidbey Island to advocate several issues that could improve school district finances. The school board will meet with newly elected state Sen. Barbara Bailey 4-5 p.m. Monday, Dec. 4. Then board members will meet with newly elected state Rep. Dave Hayes 11 a.m. to noon Friday Dec. 7. Prior to the meeting Hayes will tour Oak Harbor High School. The school board will meet with state Rep. Norma Smith, who is the 10th District’s senior legislator, 4-5 p.m. Friday, Dec. 14. All meetings take place at the Administrative Service Center and are open to the public. Superintendent Rick Schulte said the legislator meetings are important to share the district’s view on priority issues. It looks like the crux of the upcoming meetings will be advocating compliance with the McCleary decision, which was a recent state Supreme Court case that found Washington state

hasn’t fully funded education. The state has a 2018 deadline to fully fund schools. “This is by far and away the most important topic we’re supporting,” school board member Peter Hunt said during a Monday evening board meeting. In addition, the board members hope to push for the continuation of the Local Effort Assistance, which is money given out to school districts that have low levies. Schulte mentioned that the dollars has been targeted for elimination by the governor’s office over the past three budget cycles. The Oak Harbor School District receives $800,000 in Local Effort Assistance. School officials will also mention the state needs to provide a better staffing model for districts. As an example, Schulte noted that the state allocates only the equivalent of a 0.8 full time school nurse while the school district currently employees three. Other topics that could come up include unfunded mandates, health benefits, improved funding for transportation and improved funding for special education. Schulte said staff members will also have an opportunity to address the board and legislators during the upcoming meetings.

McKole, Rumble close out stellar collegiate careers By JIM WALLER Sports editor

For one, it is all about the feet. For the other, it is a matter of good hands. Regardless of the appendage, Oak Harbor graduates and college seniors Carson McKole and Rodrick Rumble left their imprints in the record books of their respective college athletic programs. McKole finished her career as one of the most decorated players in the history of Central Washington University soccer, while Rumble rewrote the Idaho State University football receiving records.

Fast feet McKole’s list of achievements is impressive. She is a two-time, allGreat Northwest Athletic Conference first-team choice and three-time, all-academic selection. In 2011, she was a second-team, all-West Region choice and West Region allacademic selection. This year’s regional awards have not yet been announced. She is only the fourth Wildcat women’s soccer player to ever earn first-team, all-conference honors. McKole holds CWU career

records in game-winning goals (eight) and penalty kick attempts (two), and a singleseason record in penalty kick attempts (two). On the career chart she is fourth in goals (23) and shot attempts (165) and fifth in points (52). Among single-season records, she is second in game-winning goals (four) and third in penalty kicks made (one). She is also among the top 12 in the CWU record book in seven other categories. This year she led the Wildcats in goals (eight), points (18), shots (44), shots on goal (27), shots-on-goal percentage (.614), game-winning goals (two) and gametying goals (two). Central coach Michael Farrand said McKole was “an awesome addition to the CWU soccer,” made an impact since arriving as a freshman and is one of the best forwards in the region. He added, “I feel blessed to know her as a tremendous young lady and certainly appreciate her efforts on the field and her success in the classroom. Central Washington University loses a great young lady who epitomizes who and what a suc-

cessful student-athlete should be all about.” McKole said her goals at a Central changed as her career progressed. At first she wanted to be a starter and “have a significant impact on the team,” then she wanted to “become a captain and an All-American.” McKole added, “It’s very honorable to be recognized throughout the league and it is a great reward for all the hard work I have put into the sport.” Her work in the classroom has been as impressive as on the pitch: “It was difficult to make homework a priority. My motivation was the fact that I had come to college to receive an education, therefore my grades came first.” She holds a 3.53 grade point average while majoring in communications studies and minoring in Spanish. Of all her achievements, she most cherishes his selection as team captain: “It was something that I had to put effort into because I had to shape my personality in ways that I hadn’t been forced to do so before. It was also an honor because my coach and team chose me for the role.” The mark she hopes she left on her teammates is the

passion she had for them and soccer. She added, “I hope they remember the relationships that we built as team members and how much fun we had during conditioning.” Her success, she said, comes from the foundation built by her family and coaches. McKole plans to graduate in the spring and “venture in the job market,” and, possibly, continue playing at a competitive level.

Strong Hands Rumble’s good hands helped put his name at the top of the Idaho State University record book, but he sees a divine touch in his success. “It was a blessing (playing college football). I feel God had his hands on me. Who knew other than God that Pocatello, Idaho, would be the place for me?” At Pocatello Rumble became a two-time, all-Big Sky, first-team receiver and was named to four different all-American teams. Rumble holds the ISU career records for receptions (223) and yards (2,863); his reception total is the fifth most by an active player in the Football Championship Subdivision. He established those marks even though he had only five catches as a freshman and missed two game this year with a hamstring injury. This fall he led the conference in receiving yards (120.9) and receptions (8.5) per game. Twice he had 14 catches in a game, the third-best mark in ISU history. He had a high of 218 yards in one game, also the third best at ISU. Of all his achievements, Rumble said he is most proud of “sticking it out.” Sticking it out through coaching changes -- he played for two head coaches and four different position coaches -- and mounting losses. The Bengals won only five games in Rumble’s four years. He said, “Without a doubt I would have traded my success for a few more wins.” “It was tough, but I enjoyed every minute of the ride. After a loss I would be sad on Sunday, but on Tuesday I was excited to get to practice. Wins are great, but team-

Rumble said when he arrived at Idaho State his goals were to “just get on the field” and to “just get a catch.” He played sparingly as a freshman and early that season the Bengals faced Central Washington. Central’s team included one of Rumble’s high-school teammates and he wanted to be in on the action againist the other OHHS grad. After that, he said, he focused more on practice and what was necessary to earn playing time. His greatest physical attributes, he said, are his explosiveness and his ability to change direction quickly, and his strongest personal characteristic is the ability to “shake things off.” He said his doesn’t allow himself to carry mistakes over to the next play. During Rumble’s athletic career he said he also grew as a person: “I’m more punctual,

not as rushed anymore.” He added, “(Being on time) is a matter of respect, for others and yourself.” Head coach Mike Kramer, who has been involved with the Big Sky Conference for 40 years as a player and coach, said, “Rodrick is one of the greatest players in Big Sky history, not just Idaho State history. “He is an extremely hard worker and learned that the only way he was going to be good was to work every single down.” Kramer added that Rumble is mentally and physically tough: “He is so strong minded, something you don’t often find with outside players. He has great situational awareness.” When the season ended Nov. 17, Rumble said there was an “aftershock” that his ISU career was finished. Now he is focusing on training for playing at the next level. “It will be a blessing if I get the opportunity. First, I need to get my degree. I think my family is more happy about that than football.” for more sports, see page 15

in self defense; under law, prosecutors would have to prove a lack of self defense beyond a reasonable doubt to convict him. Banks explained that Cooper was carrying an iPhone and recorded the confrontation. The video, Banks said, shows Cooper narrating the encounter as he came up to Ellis from behind and confronted him; Ellis was walking away and speaking on a cell phone. According to the prosecutor, Ellis can be heard saying, “Hey, we’re cool bro. I don’t have any beef with you.” Cooper allegedly wasn’t dissuaded and a melee ensued. Ellis hit him once or twice and then left, according to Banks. State law doesn’t require Ellis to render aid, the prosecutor said. A newspaper deliver y

person found Cooper lying in the parking lot soon afterward and called 911. Cooper and Ellis were both at the Element nightclub downtown prior to the confrontation. Banks said he didn’t know what they had been arguing about. Ellis later heard that someone had been found unconscious and injured downtown; he called the police to inquire whether the injured person was the man he hit. Banks said the police didn’t have a suspect until Ellis essentially turned himself in. Banks said he was aware Ellis had martial arts training and took that into account in evaluating the evidence. Ellis won an amateur, 135-pound bantamweight title bout in mixed martial arts in 2011, according to a March 15, 2011 NewsTimes story. “It’s just a tragic, tragic case,” Banks said. “We’re awaiting the full investigation from the police. We

haven’t completely ruled out a prosecution.” Oak Harbor Police Chief Ed Green said he was surprised by the prosecutor’s decision not to charge Ellis, but detectives will continue to gather evidence in hopes of persuading Banks to prosecute. “We are going forward because we feel we have a crime,” he said. Ellis could not be reached for comment. Oak Harbor resident Ryan Thomas, Cooper’s lifelong friend and roommate, said Cooper went to the Element that night with a group of friends, but ended up alone. He said Cooper and Ellis didn’t know each other, but have many mutual friends. He doesn’t know what prompted the fight. “It was a verbal confrontation that turned worse than it should have,” he said. Terry Cooper said he is very troubled over the lack of prosecution, especially when the prosecutor hasn’t seen the medical files.

Chris Cooper is pictured in happier times. He said the neurologist stressed the seriousness of the head trauma. “He said this is not the kind of injury you see from a ground-level fall. It’s what you would see in a really bad traffic accident,” he said. Cooper said it’s significant that Ellis is a mixed martial arts fighter and should be held accountable for the sheer brutality of the attack.

The claim notes that Romney in the summer of 2012 raised concerns about improper chlorine levels causing health problems among staff and patrons. When Romney notified the swim team of his concerns, Walker fired him, according to documents provided by Butler. Emily Beschem, associate attorney for the Law Office of Robert Butler, said of the whistleblower complaint that “we’re hoping that will make them launch an investigation into the complaint.” Robinson, who was an administrative assistant and Aquajets treasurer for four years, was fired from

CLAIM CONTINUED FROM A1

Bellingham-based attorney said in an email. “It is sad and frustrating to see dedicated employees treated so poorly by a new director who is out of touch with the needs of the district.” Romney coached the North Whidbey Aquatic Club, the Aquajets, for 10 years before losing his position several weeks ago. He alleged in the tort claim he was fired in retaliation for questioning the business practices and conduct of the executive director.

her position more than a month ago. According to the claim, Robinson, who is African American, alleges that Walker created a hostile workplace by treating her differently and in “a hostile, bully manner.” Robinson alleges in the claim that he demanded she commit perjury in regards to a protection order filed against a former employee of the park district. She also claimed Walker asked for her password she used to access swim team finances and that Walker harshly criticized her after she reported violations of the Open Public Meetings Act.

“Firing the only african american female because she refused to bow to unethical demands is outrageous,” Butler said in the email. “Firing the long-term swim coach because he alerted the community to the potential health and safety issues at the pool and supported the sole African American female employee in the office is cause for serious concern at North Whidbey Park and Recreation District and we look forward to litigating these two cases,” he wrote. Walker refused Monday to comment on the tort claims from Romney and Robinson.

He has stated in previous published reports that their allegations against the district were false. Both Romney and Robinson are claiming damages in excess of $100,000 and to get re-instated. “Ideally, they would like to get their jobs back,” Beschem said. The terminations of Romney and Robinson has sparked several lengthy public meetings in recent meetings where swim club members and parents voiced their support for the former employees. Walker said the park

Saratoga Orchestra hosts sing-along Dec. 2 By REBECCA OLSON Staff reporter

This concert has a different atmosphere than most. Instead of silently appreciating the music, the audience is asked to sing along at two community sing-along events. Last year, Whidbey Island’s Own Saratoga Orchestra held a community sing-along of G.F. Handel’s “Messiah” in Freeland, and while they’re repeating that this year, they’re also expanding the event to Oak Harbor. The first sing-along will be at 2:30 p.m. Sunday, Dec. 2 at the First Reformed Church in Oak Harbor, and a second will be at 7 p.m. Dec. 2 at Trinity Lutheran Church in Freeland. Charles Terpenning, guest conductor, will lead the orchestra and four soloists. Audience members will sit in

sections arranged by voice range and sing sections of “Messiah.” “A lot of the time, people enjoy concerts but if people can get involved in them, they enjoy it much more,” Terpenning said. Those wishing to participate don’t need to worry about the quality of their singing. It’s all about having a good time together as a community, Terpenning said. Audience members are also welcome to sit and listen. Last year’s concert was a huge success, Terpenning said. “The turnout was amazing. The church was packed and there were even people out in the lobby,” he said. Last year is the first time the orchestra has tried this format, a format popular in the Seattle area and around the country, Terpenning

said. “People were very excited about it. We had people coming up to us afterward asking when we’re going to do this again,” Terpenning said. “The excitement was just tremendous and I think everyone there had a great time.” “And we have some very good soloists again this year,” Terpenning said. Soloists are Kate Matteson, LuAnne Hargis, Bill Whitney and Karl Olsen. Most of the soloists and orchestra members performing are from the island and include former professional musicians who retired locally, members who’ve played in the Seattle Symphony, the Metropolitan Opera and the Pacific Northwest Ballet Orchestra. Anyone who comes will probably recognize 90 percent of the

orchestra as friends and neighbors, Terpenning said. Terpenning has played viola in the Saratoga Orchestra for five years and volunteered to conduct this concert. He earned degrees from the New England Conservatory of Music. “I look at this as a chance to come back and direct a very good orchestra and very good soloists,” Terpenning said. He said he’s hoping for a good turnout so the orchestra can make this an annual tradition. “I’m looking forward to it,” Terpenning said. Those with scores should bring them; a limited number of copies will be available to rent at the concerts. Tickets cost $15. Visit www.sowhidbey.com for more information, including sing-along tips.

RUFit earns 6 spots in national meet Six Running Unlimited Fitness athletes picked up berths in the national USA Track and Field Junior Olympic cross country meet with strong efforts at the regional competition earlier this month at Mead High School in Spokane. Another RUFit and Oak Harbor High School runner, Christina Wicker, competed in the Border Clash Nov. 17 at the Nike complex in Beaverton, Ore., placing 39th (17:09, 4.4K) out of 80 in a race between the best high-school runners from Washington and Oregon. The Washington girls won the meet for the fifth consecutive year with three Washington runners (led by Glacier Peak’s Amy-Eloise Neale, 5:33) breaking the course record. The USATF regional meet included runners from Washington, Oregon and Idaho. The national championship meet is Saturday, Dec. 8, at Balloon Fiesta Park in Albuquerque. Jonalynn Horn (intermediate girls, 15/16), John Rodeheffer (intermediate boys), Gavin Stewart (intermediate boys), Laura Rodeheffer (youth girls, 13/14), Ryan Vasileff (midget boys, 11/12) and Dylan Rydell (midget boys) all qualified for the national championships. Horn ran a personal record 19:38 (5K) to finish second,

running “strong and determined,” according to coach Catie Rodeheffer. John Rodeheffer placed fourth (16:52, 5K) and Stewart 14th (17:53) in the intermediate race. “Both ran aggressively, always pushing to be competitive with the runners around them,” according to coach Rodeheffer. Laura Rodeheffer, Vasileff and Rydell, were “shared” with other clubs since RUFit did not have enough runners (five) to form a team in their age groups, helping adoptive their teams to division titles. Laura Rodeheffer finished 25th in a season PR (16:16, 4K) for the winning Whatcom Tesseract. Vasileff (11:02, 3K) and Rydell (12:25) ran PRs to finish 11th and 50th as the Cascade Striders won the midget boys division. In the youth boys (13/14) 4K race, Miguel Guzman PRed to finish 27th (14:46) and Logan Clark placed 42nd (15:05). Megan Keating (midget girls) ran a PR (12:23, 3K) to place 34th in a strong field. Coach Rodeheffer said Keating’s time would have placed her in the top 20 in 2011. Mallorie Mitchem PRed in the youth girls 4K race, finishing 34th (16:45). Riley Williamson (bantam boys, 9/10) ran the 3K in a personal-best 14:09. Running Unlimited Fitness

sports in brief Catz win thriller on late 3-pointer The Oak Harbor Catz eighth-grade girls select basketball team pulled out a thrilling 39-38 win over Stanwood Nov. 17. Down 30-12 at the half, the Catz mounted an impressive comeback to move within two, 38-36, with 12 seconds left. After a timeout, Rahsanna Graham drilled a three-point shot to put Oak Harbor in the lead, then the Catz defense blocked two shots in the final seconds to secure the win. Catz coach Gary Brundidge said his team received strong contributions from Bryn Langrock, Sade Mobely, Jaden Jesus, Tita Johnson, Kaytlyn Wallin and Graham.
