Conard weds 10 same-sex couples Sun.

VOL. 18, NO. 19

Preserving History

By Justin Burnett Staff Reporter

Ten gay couples became some of the first in Island County to take advantage of Washington’s new same-sex marriage laws Sunday when they tied the knot at a private ceremony in Langley. Officiated by Coupeville Mayor Nancy Conard, the weddings were held at the home of one of the nation’s most famous gay couples: Grethe Cammermeyer and Diane Divelbess. They were one of the couples who wed. Cammermeyer said it was a memorable day to begin with but it was made that much more special thanks to Conard. She prepared for the ceremonies by calling each of the couples in advance to learn a little about them so each service would be a little more personal. “(She) did such a beautiful job with all them,” Cammermeyer said. An Uzbeki wedding horn, loaned by Langley resident Fred Lundahl, and drinking glasses with the date and “Married in Washington” blazoned on the side, also helped to make the day memorable. Amazingly, all of the ceremonies were conducted over a short two-hour period, from 1 to 3 p.m., and were then followed by Cammermeyer’s and Divelbess’ annual Christmas party. Adherence to a regimented schedule allowed everything to go smoothly and on time, said Cammermeyer, who is a retired colonel with the Washington National Guard. “It was a military operation,” she joked. Coupeville residents Jim Sherman and Michael Ferri were one of the couple’s who wed on Sunday. Their relationship began more than 30 years ago in San Francisco, Calif. Sherman was working for the state and living in a church rectory when he was convinced by a friend to attend a spiritual group for gay men. There he met Ferri. It wasn’t exactly love at first sight. The two sat next to each other but in a confusing case of mistaken identity, Ferri thought Sherman was involved with a mutual friend and that he had been cheating on him with an anonymous doctor. Later, when Ferri was asked if he wanted to give Sherman his number, his impression of the man sunk and he thought, “The nerve.” Of course it was all soon cleared up and the two hit it off. “That’s how it started and we’ve been together ever since,” Ferri said. Just not legally. See MARRIAGE, page 13

Workers install a new roof on Smith Farm at Willowood Farm in Central Whidbey. Located in the heart of Ebey’s Landing National Historical Reserve, it’s believed to be more than 100 years old, is one of the parks signature structures and favorite of photographers.

Ebey grant gives barn new protection By Justin Burnett Staff Reporter

A community supported grant program is giving one of Central Whidbey’s most recognizable and historic structures a new lease on life. Workers recently began installing a new metal roof on the Smith Barn at Willowood Farm, which is located about one mile south of town in the heart of Ebey’s Landing National Historical Reserve. According to farm owner Georgie Smith, the project was made possible due to grant money received from the Ebey’s Forever Fund. The pot of money is generated from local donations and is awarded to owners of threatened historic structures. “We would not have been able to afford to do this without it,” Smith said, of the grant program. The exact age of the Smith Barn is unknown, but Smith says it’s believed to be at least 100 years old. She said she can’t be sure but thinks the barn was constructed sometime in the 1880s.

“I’ve never been able to find an actual date but we’re confident it’s before the 1900s,” she said. Better known is the age of its roof. Bill Smith, Georgie Smith’s father, said he remembers it was installed just after the great Columbus Day Storm of 1962. Shingles from the old roof had just been taken off when the West Coast was hit by the famous blow, a storm that killed dozens of people. “We had about 100 mph winds,” Bill Smith recalled. New metal sheeting went up shortly afterwards but that was 50 years ago this year. Over the years, that shiny new roof turned brown with rust and had begun to leak badly.

According to Georgie Smith, a new roof was expected to run at least $30,000, a hefty bill for a small-town farming family. So they applied for Ebey’s Forever Fund money, a program that has only been around for two years, and was awarded a grant. “We knew we couldn’t afford it from the get go,” she said. That money was then leveraged for a Heritage Barn Grant, a program administered though the Department of Archaeology and Historic Preservation, which was used to replace the structure’s old doors. Altogether, the Smiths’ received about $29,000 from the two funds. Both grants reSee BARN, page 13

County treasurer’s office recognizes volunteers By Justin Burnett Staff Reporter

A small host of volunteers was honored by Island County elected officials last week for their critical contributions at the treasurer’s office this fall. Island County Commissioner Helen Price Johnson presented each of the eight volunteers with certificates of appreciation during a special brunch thrown in their honor this past Thursday. “The whole county is benefiting from what you’re doing so thank you,” Price Johnson said. Since 2011, low staffing levels have compelled the treasurer’s office to seek assistance from the public three times to help out during tax season, according to Treasurer Ana Maria Nuñez. Each time, Good Samaritans stepped forward to help with the time-consuming task of sorting envelopes and statements from property owners. This past fall, they put

in about 190 hours of work. “Without them…,” Nuñez said. “They’re critical.” The office would have had a much harder, if not impossible, time meeting all its state-required deadlines and objectives without their help, she said. Coupeville residents Bob and Beulah Whitlow, who attended Thursday’s party, volunteered all three times. While the work did give them a sense of satisfaction of giving back to the community, it wasn’t the only reason they volunteered. “They are all really nice people to work and so appreciative,” Beulah Whitlow said. “It was easy to come back.” Nuñez, who called the volunteers “amazing,” expressed similar feelings. Not only have they continually helped the office out of an ongoing crunch, she said, they’ve also given staffers something much more valuable – their friendship.

viewpoints Thank you for giving relationship validity By Harry Anderson A subplot in the 1966 Broadway musical “Cabaret” concerns the doomed romance of an elderly Jewish fruit vendor and his non-Jewish landlady in early-1930s Berlin. Their love was taboo in the antiSemitic German culture of the day, and their marriage was against the law – even before the Nazis made it a capital crime. At one point, the man sings these words to his forbidden lover: How the world can change. It can change like thatDue to one little word: “Married.” See a palace rise From a two-room flat Due to one little word: “Married.” And the old despair That was often there Suddenly ceases to be. For you wake one day, Look around and say: Somebody wonderful married me. I have thought about that a lot since Referendum 74 was approved by the voters in Washington, and same-sex marriage became legal in the state this month. My partner Terry Bible and I have been together for 37 years. We met in 1975. Our relationship was still against the law in many states. Those old laws were rarely enforced by then, but everybody knew they were on the books. Even living in a big city like Los Angeles, we were cautious whom we told about having a “roommate.” Our official status was always checked “single/never married,” our public lives were quite separate, and only those we chose to tell knew who we really were. Prejudice, if it happened, wasn’t overt. Just whispered. It has gotten so much better through the years.

The “stigma” that my mother worried so much about has pretty much disappeared. We have lived in diverse communities in Los Angeles, Santa Barbara and Dallas, and have shared our lives openly with everyone. It’s amazing how many straight couples these days tell us how much they admire the longevity of our relationship. On our 30th anniversary in 2005, we had a church wedding at Trinity Episcopal Church in Santa Barbara before 200 friends and family members. And since we moved to Coupeville in 2009, we have enjoyed a warm reception by this very friendly, close-knit community that we love so much. This is where we intend to spend the rest of our lives. On Dec. 6, the first day it was possible, we got a “legal” marriage license at the Island County Auditor’s office in Coupeville. At least 10 other same-sex couples, most of whom had been together for many years just like us, were lined up, waiting for the office to open. After the required three-day waiting period, we had a civil marriage service on Dec. 9, officiated by Coupeville Mayor Nancy Conard. So, after 37 years together, with every aspect of our lives already entertwined, and every human being we know already aware of who we are, what difference does “legal” marriage make? A lot. It feels good knowing that Terry has all the legal protections and benefits of any other spouse in Washington. It feels good knowing that when I am introduced as his spouse, people will automatically know we’re married. And it feels good knowing that all the young gay men and women who come after us won’t have to share their love in the shadows or pretend to be something they’re not or tell lies about the person they love. They’ll be able to marry that person, just like anybody else can. Most of all, it feels complete. Somebody wonderful married me. Thank you, Washington voters. Thank you very much.

Petitioners need to stop with jet noise grumbling Try as I may, I can no longer remain silent on the issue of the Naval Outlying Field Coupeville petition. Ken Pickard made one comment I concur with — "That is it. It's over." However, he was remiss in not adding it is the grumbling that should be over. Unless you purchased your home before OLF was activated in the spring of 1968, as we did, you knew what you were getting into and shouldn't be signing any petition. Am I happy about the noise? Definitely not and I did my fair share of complaining until one day I got a call that the father of one of my first grade students was killed when his plane failed to catch the hook off an aircraft carrier. I'm ashamed to say I still occasionally whine about the noise then chastise myself for my selfishness. Could those lives have been spared with more practice? I don't know but the guilt of complaining still plagues me. Jim Slick annoyingly points out the need for OLF to save our economy. OLF is not about saving the island's economy but saving lives. OLF was chosen because flying conditions are favorable for flying. How arrogant and selfish of us to insist the training field be moved so that others are inflicted with this noise when they didn't ask for it. Most of you knew what you were getting into. As to increased noise level. I don't know about that but I do know the resonance of the new planes is different. During Vietnam the flight from the older planes would actually rattle the windows. Needless to say on those days our young daughters didn't get any nap time. My advice is to either tolerate the noise or move. Ken, I do feel your frustration as you and your family have lived here before OLF was

Marilyn Engel Coupeville

OLF petition sparks memories of Vietnam Deja’ vu is the word I would use that best describes the action taken by the petitioners to end the naval flight operations at Outlying Field Coupeville. As a veteran of Vietnam, I experienced being ordered to remove my uniform before re-entering the continental United States after dark. As one of many veterans during that difficult time period who experienced that exercise on more than one occasion, we were so ordered as to not disturb the protesting vocal native population. At least that was the explanation at the time. Back then the protesters didn’t want to see the military, today it appears they don’t want to hear the military. Many of these petitioners appear to be of the age today as would those who protested the war in Vietnam. The only difference today is back then they would not serve in uniform, today they cannot serve in uniform due to age. So much for hiding behind the forest of U.S. flags and “support the troops” bumper stickers. Some folks can only stay in the closet so long before they put their mouth where their beliefs lie. Unfortunately the petitioners have crossed the line, which in turn is generating an “us against them” mentality that neither side has any hope of winning. Choice made. Consequences paid.

Late critical areas update prompts action By Justin Burnett Staff Writer

A state-required update to a section of Island County’s critical areas ordinances is seven years past due and a South Whidbey-based environmental watchdog group says that’s too long. Officials with Whidbey Environmental Action Network, or WEAN, have confirmed that they will be filing a failure to act petition this week with the state’s Growth Management Hearings board for the county’s lack of action to update its policies and regulations for fish and wildlife conservation areas. Steve Erickson, litigation coordinator for WEAN, said the update has continually shown up on the Island County Planning Commission’s docket as an action item but has yet to be completed. He believes the existing rules need “extensive changes” and, after years of delay, the only way to ensure the county takes action is to seek an enforcement order by the state hearing’s board. “It’s the only way we can assure the county meets its obligations,” Erickson said. “It’s just time that happens,” he said. In 1990, the Legislature passed the Growth Management Act, which required counties and cities to adopt comprehensive land use plans and development regulations to coordinate and manage growth and development, as well as protect the state’s natural resources and critical areas. In response, the county adopted its comprehensive plan and its critical areas ordinance, which addresses wetlands and agriculture to geologically hazardous and frequently flooded areas, in 1998. Those rules are subject to continual review, however, and the state established a Dec. 1, 2005, deadline for Island County. With the exception of fish and wildlife habitat conservation areas, all have been updated. WEAN submitted a letter to Island County Planning and Community Development and the Prosecutor’s Office last month to notify officials of its intent to file the petition with the hearing’s board. Along with addressing the conservation areas update failure, it alleged that the shoreline master program update, which is currently in the process of being adopted, contained elements of the old rules.

Steve Erickson, litigation founder for Whidbey Environmental Action Network, addresses the Island County Commissioners during a recent meeting on the shoreline master program update. WEAN plans to take legal action this week to ensure the county starts work on an update to a section of the critical areas ordinance, which is seven years overdue. Erickson alleged a lack of consistency would be created between the two sets of regulations once the critical areas ordinance is fully updated. Bob Pederson, the county’s planning chief, did address WEAN’s litigation threat at the commissioner’s work session last week, saying the petition and a possible enforcement order by the hearing board will be a hardship for the department. “If they do so, that is going to have a substantial impact on the work program and there will be an economic number associated with that,” Pederson said. Lacking the “in-house expertise” to accomplish all aspects of the update, he said an outside consultant would likely need to be hired. Time was scheduled in 2012 to perform some of the work for the update but significant progress wasn’t made as attempts to secure grant funding were unsuccessful. Pederson said he is optimistic they will have better luck with another grant opportunity being sought this January. Some work was done, however, through the shoreline master program update

as the rules contain a conservation areas element. Subsequently, Pederson does not agree with Erickson’s opinion that the program includes outdated policies. “Certainly there are provisions from the old ordinance that carried forward but there is more than that,” he said. Island County Commissioner Helen Price Johnson said she does hope the next grant application is more successful but she also made it clear that she believes it’s time to make progress on the overdue update. “I think it is important that we move forward,” Price Johnson said. “It’s languished a long time.” This isn’t the first time WEAN has been a thorn in the county’s side. Since its inception in 1989, the nonprofit group has challenged the county on various land-use policies, projects and permits on more than 20 separate occasions. Those challenges have taken place in courts, in front of hearings examiners and the GMA hearings board. It’s been in continuous litigation with the county over the agricultural element of the critical areas ordinance

The recent letter from WEAN also requested a schedule be mutually agreed upon for when the update would be completed.

Friendship Force welcomes Indonesian educators By Elisabeth Murray Staff Reporter

It is noon on Whidbey Island. People are working, running errands, caring for their children, strolling on the beach, grabbing lunch at the drive-through, and doing any number of things that Americans do in a typical day. An ocean away, most Indonesians are fast asleep. It is 2 a.m. their time. But 15 educators from the Southeast Asian nation had their sleep schedule flipped upside down as they visited Washington state, stopping

first in Spokane, then heading to Whidbey Island. The teachers and principals from this Islamic nation were here as “ambassadors” through Friendship Force International, and the Whidbey Island chapter was excited to host them. “This was such an enriching experience — words cannot describe,” said Shirley Hauck, exchange director and member of Friendship Force of Whidbey Island. “The Indonesian ambassadors are wonderful people.” During the visit, the group saw the island’s highlights, including Coupeville, Langley

and Deception Pass. They also took a ferry ride to visit Port Townsend and toured Boeing’s commercial jet assembly plant in Mukilteo. The Indonesians experienced American culture by living in a host home during their visit, and developed friendships to last a lifetime. “It is a really neat example of local citizens taking small steps to improve U.S. relations with the Muslim world in a time of much strife,” said George Brown, president of Friendship Force International, headquartered in Atlanta, Ga. The organization has 371 chapters in 54 countries. A unique aspect to this exchange was its educational component: a three-day professional training program on techniques for teaching English as a second language. The class for the Indonesian teachers and principals was held at the Northwest Language Academy Cultural Center in Langley and was taught by visiting instructor Margaret Hicks. The program was provided by Friendship Force in cooperation with the Consortium for Global Education. After the groups return to Indonesia, they will complete additional online training and receive a certificate. “The program was great,” said Indonesian teacher Yvonne de Fretes. “There was so much information.” Friendship Force was established in 1976 when international travel was not as common as it is today. The organization was formed to increase knowledge and interest among

Americans going overseas as well as to encourage people from other countries to come to the United States to learn about American culture. In a world divided by the Cold War, the vision was to bring about world peace — one friendship at a time. And while the Soviet Union has since crumbled and the Cold War brought to an end, world peace remains as elusive as it was four decades ago. However, the Friendship Force vision remains the same, and participants believe that meaningful friendships can begin with a foundation of just one week. Friendship Force of Whidbey Island hosted the

visiting educators from Oct. 7 to Oct. 15. The club currently has 14 members, with the possibility of six new people joining the ranks. “We are always looking for new members,” Hauck said. “This is for anyone who has an interest in learning about other cultures.” Traveling with a Friendship Force exchange can be a less expensive way to travel, but this is not always the case as Hauck discovered when staying with a host family in Brazil. The cultural norm to dine out for meals, rather than prepare a meal at home, ate into the expected savings from not having to pay for a hotel room. But saving money isn’t the reason to sign up for exchanges with this group. Rather, the goal is to make meaningful connections with people in ways that you can’t

on a typical vacation abroad, Hauck said. Staying with a host family gives an opportunity to see how people in that nation live and discover both differences and commonalities, she said. “There are such nice people here — so polite and helpful,” said Indonesian teacher Driwiyanti Sudarina, who visited the U.S. for the first time on this exchange. Sudarina had expected the U.S. to be really crowded, consisting of city after city, and said she was surprised and pleased by Whidbey Island’s natural beauty. She said she really enjoyed seeing the deer and rabbits. Sudarina’s home city, Jakarta, swells from 9 million people to 12 million people each day as commuters travel to and from work. Whidbey’s largest city — Oak Harbor — has a population of about 22,200.

Foraging for flowers is fun

Lynn honored for work By Elisabeth Murray Staff Writer

Judy Lynn has spent countless hours listening. With more than 200 oral history interviews conducted on behalf of Ebey’s Landing National Historical Reserve and the Island County Historical Society under her belt, this Coupeville resident knows a lot about local history. Lynn’s efforts recently culminated in the book “Images of America: Coupeville” published by Arcadia Publishing. The book chronicles Coupeville’s history as recorded in photographs. Local resident Kay Foss also pitched in. The Trust Board of Ebey’s Landing National Historical Reserve recognized Lynn for her hard work in preserving local history. She is the recipient of the 2012 Volunteer of the Year award, which she received at the Ebey’s Forever Annual Community Potluck earlier this month. “Every year -- we have dozens and dozens of volunteers that contribute their time, expertise and passion

standing the history and people of Central Whidbey, Coupeville and the Reserve, Preiss said. The behind-the-scenes stories would simply be lost to us, had it not been for Lynn’s dedication and persistence, he said. However, because of her work, the stories and personal histories are “available to all of us and to future generations,” he said. In addition to conducting and transcribing the interviews, Lynn, a professional organizer, also assembled, sorted and scanned a large number of photographs. Even after putting in countless hours on the project, Lynn said the award

was unexpected. “It was a total surprise to me. I had no idea it was coming,” she said. “It’s quite an honor.” Preiss also recognized the assistance of the Coupeville Lions Club and other community volunteers who gave a combined 400 hours as preservation crew members to help stabilize the Engle Carriage House as part of the fifth Historic Preservation Field School. In addition, the Central Whidbey Lions donated their time to maintain the Ebey’s Prairie wayside and assist the Island County Historical Society in preserving the Alexander Blockhouse, located on the museum grounds, he said.

Examiner The Whidbey

Maybe you caught the story in the Seattle Times a few weeks ago about foraging for wild foods to supplement your Thanksgiving feast. That’s an idea I can get behind during any season of the year. In fact, along with planning your veggie garden for next year, think about adding some incredible edible bedding plants to your flower boarders and do all your foraging closer to home. You’re probably well aware the flowers of most of your culinary herbs are not only beautiful in the garden, but also flavorful additions to meals. This is especially true of members of the mint, or Lamiaceae, family. This includes innumerable kinds of sages, rosemary, thyme, hyssop and even lavender. With lavender, however, you’ll have better results if you stick with an English lavender variety or Provence, one of the few lavender hybrids recommended for culinary use. The reason for this is the higher amounts of camphor found in French (L. x intermedia) varieties. The flavor of lavender can be strong for some, so use it sparingly. You can eat English daisies, chrysanthemums, lilacs, marigolds and nasturtiums, sunflower buds, roses, snapdragons, yuccas and daylilies. You can even eat passion flowers, though it seems a sin to devour something so wondrous to look at. As always, eating things provided by Mother Nature comes with a warning. Pesticides formulated for ornamentals are not the same as intended for food crops. Don’t eat your bedding plants if you’re in the habit of chemically treating them for pests. For the same reason, don’t eat flowers you’ve gotten from

toni grove sowin ’n’ the trowel a commercial grower or a florist. And don’t eat something that is exposed daily to the toxic miasma emanating from your car. That’s just nasty. Also, some flower parts can be bitter, while others parts are sweet. Remove the sepals from most flowers and use only the petals. One exception where you can eat the whole flower is when using pansies, Johnny-jump-ups and violas. Remove the bitter white portion at the base of the petals of roses, chrysanthemums, dianthus and marigolds. Because pollen can cause allergic reactions in some people, get in the habit of removing the stamen and pistils from flowers before you use them in foods. Just like you’d do if you were mushroom hunting, be sure you know exactly what plant it is you’ve just picked. There’s been a spate of mushroom poisoning deaths in the national news of late, all because people didn’t know what they were doing. Know your plants. Some flowers are edible, while the rest of the plant is not. If you can’t tell the difference between a tulip bulb and daffodil bulb, then don’t even think about preparing a quick stir fry with the bulbs that didn’t make it into the garden. Stock up on plant ID books and especially edible flower guides and become an informed forager.

The stage is built. Lines are memorized. And the roll-drop is ready to go for the Christmas production of FruItCaKes at the Whidbey Playhouse in Oak Harbor, currently showing. The mechanism allows for fast scene changes and was built by the Central Whidbey Lions Club. “Rapid scene changes are a must to hold the audience’s attention,” said Jim Rich, Central Whidbey Lions Club member. According to Rich, the roll-drop offers the Playhouse the ability to add greater diversity and depth to productions. The fabric can be painted and repainted to create “soft scenery” for different productions. When designing the mechanism for scene chang-

es, the Lions focused on creating something safe to operate and affordable. A manual drop can be dangerous — especially if operated by inexperienced volunteers, Rich said. The Lions ended up adapting a tube motor to their own design that only moves when the power is applied, solving the safety issue, he said. The cost per 20 foot rolldrop mechanism was about $550, significantly less than what those manufactured for professional theater cost, he said. The roll-drop’s lightweight design — as compared to heftier professional theater systems — is also an advantage, he said. It will allow for the roll-drop to be more easily repositioned. The Playhouse’s stage gets reconfigured between productions, of which there are

An article written by Rich about the design of the roll-drop appeared in the November issue of Sightlines, the publication for USITT

members. The Central Whidbey Lions Club also helped build the set for the FruItCaKes performance.

Turnovers trouble Coupeville boys By Jim Waller Staff Reporter

Turnovers are a common theme so far this season for the Coupeville High School boys basketball team, and the mistakes undercut strong efforts in three recent losses. The Wolves lost 57-24 at University Prep in Seattle Tuesday, Dec. 4; 74-25 at La Conner Thursday, Dec. 6; and 69-39 at home to Cedarcrest Friday, Dec. 7. In addition to losing the trio of games, the Wolves also lost leader Gavin O’Keefe to a broken foot in the University Prep contest. In that game, the teams played to a 10-10 tie after one quarter, then O’Keefe went down. Coach Anthony Smith said, “Once Gavin went out we became undisciplined.” Smith said the Wolves “couldn’t score and couldn’t stop them” and were crippled by turnovers in the second quarter as the Pumas outscored Coupeville 22-5 to pull away. The Wolves managed only two points in the third quarter and trailed 41-17 after three periods. Coupeville struggled from the field, hitting only 30 percent of its shots. Meanwhile, UP executed well; “I can’t imagine any other team will execute any better,” Smith said. Nick Streubel led the Wolves in scoring with 10 points. O’Keefe and Aaron Trumbull had four each; and Caleb Valko, Morgan Payne and Aaron Curtin two apiece. Coupeville pulled down John Fisken photo

32 rebounds and committed 31 turnovers. La Conner outscored Coupeville by double digits in each of the first three quarters to roll to its big win. The win by the 2B Braves (3-0) was their third straight over a larger school. Smith said the Braves switched up defenses, starting with a fullcourt press and later going to a half-court trap, and the pressure flustered the Wolves. Coupeville finished the game with 28 turnovers. Smith said, “We don’t have a specific ball handler; we are still trying to figure it out.” John Fisken photo For the third consecutive Gavin O’Keefe directs the offense in a game earlier this season.

Coupeville girls struggle with opponents’ presses By Jim Waller Staff Reporter

La Conner and Cedarcrest both effectively used full court presses to put away the visiting Coupeville High School girls basketball team last week. The Braves defeated the Wolves 53-27 Thursday, Dec. 6, and the Red Wolves won 62-24 Friday, Dec. 7, in the conference opener. La Conner’s pressure helped it zip to a 17-2 first-quarter lead. Coupeville coach David King said, “What really hurt us all game was not taking care of the ball. In the first half we turned it over 19 times and 35 total for the game. We

are rushing and not being patient. Many of the turnovers were us just not taking care of the ball or trying to fit a pass in when there wasn’t a place to make a pass.” After the rugged first quarter, the Wolves settled in and played even with the Braves in the middle two periods, trailing 28-10 at the half and 37-20 going into the final period. Hailey Hammer scored 10 of her team-high 12 points in the second and third quarters to help the Wolves keep pace. Lauren Escalle finished with five points, Amanda Fabrizi and Makana Stone three each and Bessie Walstad two.

While the La Conner press hurt the Wolves early, Cedarcrest’s took its toll in the second half when the Red Wolves out scored Coupeville 37-7. The Wolves handled Cedarcrest’s pressure for the most part in the first half, according to Smith. The Red Wolves went up 14-6 in the first quarter, and the gap remained eight at the break, 25-17. King said, “Cedarcrest turned up their pressure on the press to start the third, this sped up the game and caused us to play faster than we wanted and caused us to turn the ball over for easy layups for the Red Wolves.” The turnovers also limited

Coupeville’s shooting opportunities as Cedarcrest outscored the Wolves 17-2 in the period. Cedarcrest continued to press in the fourth quarter, the Wolves continued to struggle and the Red Wolves out scored Coupeville 21-5 in the final frame. King said his team played “great help defense” throughout the game, but was stung by the press and Cedarcrest’s fast break. He was pleased with the defensive effort of Fabrizi and Stone on Susan Kenney, one of the area’s top scorers. Hammer led Coupeville with eight points and 10 rebounds. Stone finished with six points, seven re-

bounds, three blocks and four steals. Escalle had six points, Jai’Lysa Hoskins three and Bree Messner one. King said, “On our offensive end we are starting to get more open shots, we just need to continue shooting and more will fall.” He added, “Our effort is there from the start of the game until the final buzzer. Once we minimize our turnovers we will get more shots up.” Coupeville (0-1, 1-3) played at Lakewood (0-1, 2-2) Tuesday and now hosts South Whidbey (0-1, 3-2) at 5:15 p.m. tomorrow.

Marriage: Coupeville mayor weds 10 same-sex couples Sunday; from page 1 While their relationship has withstood the test of three decades, their commitment became official for the first time Sunday when the two men, along with nine other couples, married in a private ceremony in Langley. Many of those couples, including Sherman and Ferri, were at the Island County Courthouse Thursday morning as some the first gay couples to purchase marriage licenses on Whidbey Island. Referendum 74, which was passed this November and upheld same-sex marriage in Washington, went into effect Thursday. According to the Seattle Times, more than 200 couples were in line at the Recorder’s Office in King County at midnight to get their marriage licenses. Although Island County was far less busy, Cammermeyer and Divelbess added to their personal legacy by becoming the county’s first same-sex couple to get a marriage license. Their story has been made famous by a major motion

picture that detailed Cammermeyer’s legal challenge of her involuntary discharge from the Washington National Guard in 1992 for admitting she was a lesbian. Cammermeyer, who went on to fight for years to end to end the military’s controversial “Don’t ask, Don’t tell” policy, is also a Whidbey General Hospital commissioner. For them, being legally allowed to get a marriage license after a 25-year relationship was no small thing. “There is a legitimization of our existence that’s difficult to explain,” Cammermeyer said. “If I want to hold Diane’s hand walking down the street, I have the right to do that.” For other couples at the Auditor’s Office Thursday, getting their marriage licenses was important but also something of a formality. Many said they’ve been married in their hearts, and made their commitments before God, a long time ago. “I feel like the state’s finally caught up,” said Harry Anderson, a Coupeville resident.

He and his fiance, Terry Bible, have been together since Halloween night, 1975. They moved to Whidbey a few years ago after Anderson retired from a long career in journalism and public relations. Bible works at the Whidbey Island Naval Air Station Commissary/Exchange on the Seaplane Base in Oak Harbor. Being legally married has some real-life applications that have become more important to the couple as they’ve gotten older, such as being able to establish a will and settle other financial matters to ensure their loved one is taken care of. Many of those things are much more difficult or impossible under a civil union or some other type of partnership classification. “I think it boils down to equality,” Bible said. “You want to protect you partner like any married couple would,” Anderson said. Sherman and Ferri, who are coincidentally neighbors of Anderson and Bible, feel

Diane Divelbess and Grethe Cammermeyer pose for a picture with Coupeville Mayor Nancy Conard Sunday moments after being wed at their Langley home. They were one of 10 couples to do so. much the same way. “Personally, we validated our relationship years ago,” Ferri said. They had an impromptu marriage in 1983 during a gay rights march in Washington D.C. Lacking rings, they traded beaded tribal Zulu pins. “It was exciting getting married on Constitution Avenue,” Sherman recalled. Like Anderson and Bible,

Barn: Ebey grant gives new life; from page 1 quired a 50 percent match from the Smiths, bringing the total investment, or reinvestment, to about $58,000. According to reserve manager Mark Preiss, this was an incredibly important project. Not only is the Smith Barn an old structure that speaks to an important chap-

ter in Central Whidbey’s agricultural history but it’s also a working barn, he said. It’s an integral part of Willowood Farm’s daily operations and the new roof and doors will allow the Smiths to continue to use it into the future. The reserve is not a museum but a working landscape,

he said. Also, with a breath taking backdrop of the Olympic Mountain range, it’s one of Central Whidbey most commonly photographed locations and one of the reserve’s signature structures. “Clearly, when you look at the Smith Barn, it’s one of those iconic viewsheds,”

Preiss said. “It would be hard to imagine that setting without it.” Georgie Smith said she has been contacted by several people interested in purchasing the old roofing material. For more information, email her at willowoodfarm@ gmail.com.

getting married again will make settling legal affairs a little easier but this is also about making a statement. While Sherman has been more reserved and private about his life, Ferri spent years fighting on the front lines of gay-rights activism and he said he wants to make sure the message of outspoken critics, such as the late evangelical fundamentalist Jerry Falwell, aren’t passed

on to the next generation. According to Ferri, Falwell once preached that being gay meant you were not or could not contribute to the human family. Well, Ferri said he hope’s his life and now legal marriage will pass on another message, one that speaks of love, connection and equality. “To hell with you, Jerry,” he said.

help from daughter Ashlee, 20. Daughter Emilee, 19, is a surgical technician and works with her father.

Physician Assistant and owner, Reese Bliek, has worked in the medical field since 2000, and in the dermatology field since 2008. He is familiar with local patients and their histories, and uses his expertise to make initial evaluations and perform biopsies in the on-site lab.

“That’s why we chose the name Family Dermatology,” Becky said with a smile. The Blieks have lived in Oak Harbor since 1991.

The practice also employs two medical doctors specializing in dermatology. Dr. Duane Whitaker is a leading specialist in the Mohs skin-sparing procedure for challenging skin cancer surgery, and Dr. Susan Oldenkamp, who has family here on Whidbey Island, has been a practicing dermatologist in Everett since 1989. Whitaker sees surgery patients in Coupeville three days a month, and Oldenkamp visits the practice one day each week. Family Dermatology is currently looking for a third medical doctor to join its growing practice. In addition to skin cancer treatment and surgery, the clinic offers cryotherapy, phototherapy, treatment for acne, hair and nail disorders and psoriasis. Becky Bliek manages the business, with

Live the Island Dream…

Family Dermatology sees patients of all ages, but 70 percent of their clients are people over 65. “That seems to be when common skin problems catch up with people,” Becky said. The practice accepts most insurance plans and offers a payment plan for patients who lack coverage. “We want Whidbey Island patients to get their care here on the Island,” Reese said. “We’re here to fill the need for a full-service, local, dermatology clinic,” Becky said. Family Dermatology is located at 205 S. Main St., Bldg. B, in Coupeville. Visit the website at familydermco.com or call 360-682-5024.
