School’s food meets tough standards

VOL. 18, NO. 20

Stormy Seas

By Kathy Reed Staff Reporter

The Coupeville School District’s food service program has met rigorous new nutritional guidelines set forth by the federal government and qualifies for a small reimbursement for each meal served. Part of the Healthy Hunger-Free Kids Act of 2010 required schools to meet tougher nutrition standards for the 2012-2013 school year. Schools participating in the National School Lunch Program have had to offer more healthy options to help mitigate the trend toward childhood obesity. It can be a balancing act. “What kids like is what they’re used to, so we serve food kids like,” said Coupeville School District food service director Jeannett Wendell, as she busily prepared pizzas in the Coupeville middle and high school kitchen recently. “This is a whole-grain crust with flaxseed,” she continued. “Is it like pizza from a place in town? No, but they seem to like it.” The school district budgets about $314,000 per school year for food service, which is contracted to InterPacific Management/ Chartwells. The school had to submit a great deal of paperwork in order to be approved for a six-cent reimbursement for each meal served. See LUNCH, page 8

Town planner gets jail time By Jessie Stensland Staff Reporter

Langley Mayor Larry Kwarsick will have to spend more than two weeks in jail and will likely resign from office after pleading guilty to a gross misdemeanor charge for falsifying a city record. Island County Superior Court Judge Vickie Churchill shocked many in the courtroom Monday by sentencing Kwarsick to 15 days in jail after both the prosecutor and defense recommended that he serve no jail time. In fact, several of Kwarsick’s supporters were noticeably outraged. Churchill scolded Kwarsick for breaking the public trust after a 40-year career as a public servant. In addition to being a popular SeeJAIL, page 8

Waves wreak havoc on shoreline By Justin Burnett Staff Reporter

Powerful winds and high tides destroyed property, forced the closure of several roads and disrupted service on the Port Townsendto-Coupeville ferry route Monday. Waterfront residences in Bon Air on Central Whidbey suffered severe damage to bulkheads and, in several cases, resulted in the loss of up to 20 feet of property, residents reported. “Out of the 10 or 15 (waterfront) houses, only about three didn’t have damage to their bulkheads,” Diana Schmidt said. A home on West Beach Road near Swan Lake was also lost when the bulkhead in front of the house washed out. Renter Alex Thierry, a teacher in Oak Harbor, lost everything in the disaster. According to Bill Oakes, director of Island County Public Works, Monday’s storm also closed roads in communities up and down the island, from outlying Oak Harbor to Free-

land. They include: West Beach Road between Even Down Way and Swantown Road on North Whidbey, a section of Hill Road at Ebey’s Landing on Central Whidbey, and portions of Shoreview Drive by Freeland Park, Woodard Avenue and Nichols Brothers Boat Builders in Freeland. Reports also came in that portions of Madrona Way on Central Whidbey were also flooding. In addition, the state Department of Transportation, Ferries Division, cancelled multiple sailings between Port Townsend and

Coupeville due to high winds and later sailings were delayed. Vehicles and passengers were advised to take the Edmond/Kingston and Mukilteo/Clinton routes for travel to and from the Olympic Peninsula. According to Oakes, the number of road closures was the result of several converging factors. “It’s a high tide, a low pressure system and wind,” Oakes said. Monday saw some of the highest tides of See STORM, page 3

Rain can’t drown farmers markets’ success Sales dipped for 2012 but officials still call it a successful year

“People are really dedicated to buying local and are willing to come out even in bad weather.”

By Justin Burnett Staff reporter

Rainy spring weather took a bite out of the Coupeville Farmers Market this year, resulting in the first decrease in sales since 2005. Market officials attended the Coupeville Town Council’s regular meeting last week to give elected officials their annual roundup of the summer market, which is held from April to mid-October in the grassy field behind the library. According to market Manager Peg Tennant, overall sales dipped by about $6,100, from a record $345,800 in 2011 to $339,700 this year. She believes the likely culprit was the unusually wet spring as it set back the start of the growing season. Produce is the major money maker at the market, accounting for 51 percent of total sales this year. In all, local farmers brought in more than $173,500 for produce, which is a decline from the $182,000 sold in 2011. Considering both the crummy weather and an economy that continues to struggle, Tennant said the dent in this year’s sales isn’t too bad. “We are really happy with just being $6,000 under last year,” she said. Coupeville did out perform its

With a slight decrease in gross profits, Coupeville Farmers Market officials are hailing 2012 a success. North Whidbey competitor, however, when it topped the Oak Harbor Public Market in overall sales for the third year in a row. The city market consistently falls below the town in produce sales but it does consistently better with prepared food as it is held in the evening hours, Tennant said. “If you can eat it, you can sell it there,” she said. “I know that because I manage that one too.” Dorothy Mueller, president of the Coupeville market’s board of directors, was also present at the council meeting. She said shopper

attendance is not recorded but vendor attendance is and was reported healthy throughout the summer. A total of 55 members participated with average per week of 48. Of the total, 18 were farmers, 22 were nonprofit organizations and eight were musicians, she said. An expanded partnership with the library also resulted in special presentations, such as the medieval sword-fighting demonstration put on by the Moses Lake-based Knights of Veritas. She noted that a recent study by Washington State University’s Sus-

tainable Agriculture and Natural Resources Department estimated that farmers markets in 2011 contributed over $50 million in sales to the economy. “It does have a big impact,” she said. According to Tennant, the hourly sales average of all vendors combined in 2011 was $3,145 per hour. That works out to about $12,500 every day, she said. “So yeah, part of that $50 million is us,” Tennant said. The success of the farmers market isn’t lost on the agricultural

community, especially in Central Whidbey. In 2011, 3 Sisters Farm launched a limited afterseason market that took place once a month from October to December. It was enough of a success that the Muzzall family decided to run it again this year. Shelly Muzzall reported steady vendor and public attendance despite heavy rains during market days. “People are really dedicated to buying local and are willing to come out even in bad weather,” she said. Tennant agreed. “Our community is awesome generous,” she said. Tennant also told the council that the public is becoming quite educated when it comes to buying their produce. This year, customers commonly asked farmers what strains or varieties of vegetables they grew, she said. “This community’s agricultural roots go deep,” Tennant said. “It’s just awesome.”

Orginal member welcomed back to Ebey’s trust By Justin Burnett Staff reporter

The Trust Board of Ebey’s Landing National Historical Reserve welcomed back one of its original members this month. Wilbur Bishop, a longtime Central Whidbey farmer who served on the very first Trust Board 24 years ago, was appointed by the Island County Commissioners last month to fill position 5. “I’m really looking forward to it,” Bishop said. “I’ve always been interested and involved in the reserve and share it’s values.” Bishop replaces Marilyn Clay, the wife of Coupeville Town Councilman Bob Clay. She resigned in November after serving nine years on the board. Bishop, who was one of several applicants, was recommended for the position by Island County Commissioner Helen Price Johnson and his appointment was supported by Commissioner Kelly Emerson in a 2-1 vote. “Wilbur had served as a Trust Board member in the past and brings an awful lot of experience,” Price Johnson said. She also noted that Bish-

op is currentlymember of the Historic Preservation Commission, a group that makes design decisions on development within the reserve. His previous experience and occupation as a farmer are strengths that he will bring to the Trust Board, said Price Johnson, but his position on the HPC will also allow him to act as a liaison between the two groups. Bishop, the owner of Ebey Road Farm, Inc., is one of the only people still alive who served on the first Trust Board. It was formally established in 1988, 10 years after the reserve was created, but that first group began meeting as early as 1985, he said. Led by the late Herb Pickard, the multifaceted group was composed of residents who were appointed by Coupeville and Island County government officials to manage the reserve – a unit of the national park system. The reserve was created largely to stop residential development planned on a historic farmstead and, according to Bishop, to ensure the continuance of a way of life that had existed for generations. “It was to preserve a culture that was here and that

the year around Puget Sound, he said. The combination with strong winds and large waves, especially on the West Side of Whidbey Island, was the perfect recipe to flood roads. Hill Road, which was closed at about 7:30 a.m., was so choked with driftwood and running water that it was largely impassible other than by foot. A National Oceanic Atmospheric Administration alert forecast westerly winds between 20 and 35 mph with

local gusts to 60 mph. They were expected to diminish to between 15 and 30 mph with gusts near 45 mph by midday. The strongest winds were expected over Whidbey Island, especially the West side, which is exposed to the Strait of Juan de Fuca. According to Steve Marx, assistant director of Public Works, all of the roads were cleaned up and reopened by closing time Monday afternoon. “We have great work crews,” he said.

That’s what got him involved with the HPC and now he wants to return his voice to the Trust Board, he said. According to Clay, Bishop will be joining a “very different board than he served before.” This is a participatory group, she said, and members have skill sets that are put to good use. Bishop’s farming knowledge will not go untapped. “It’s an amazing board;

was farming and forestry,” he said. Bishop spent 10 years on the Trust Board, serving as a chairman and stepping down proud of several accomplishments, from helping to stop plans for a parking lot on the bluff at Ebey’s Landing to the establishment of Ridge Trail, which is one of the most picturesque hikes on Central Whidbey. In 1994, author Laura Mckinley penned “An Unbroken Historical Record: Ebey’s Landing National Historical Reserve; Administrative History,” for the National Park Service. “Laura wrote about me, ‘His most compelling concern was maintaining a viable agricultural community in Central Whidbey Island. His primary goal was to preserve the character of the community…,’ This is what I am proud of, and the fact that I have consistently maintained these same values over the years,” wrote Bishop, in an email to the Examiner. It’s those principals that have rekindled his desire to take an active role in reserve planning and management. It started with concern about a design review manual, which was created to

Connect the dots before it’s too late So, let me get this straight. You have an unstable, withdrawn, 20 year-old son at home according to the “doomsday prepper” mother. She told friends last week that she was “losing her son,” saying “it was getting worse,” and that she “was having trouble reaching him.” But, I guess it was still OK for the young man to have ready access to multiple guns with plenty of ammo? Mrs. Lanza was so worried about the economy and the direction the country was taking, according to her ex-sister-in-law, that she was getting ready for “what could happen down the line when the economy collapses.” At home were five weapons: Bushmaster AR-15 assault rifle, Glock 10 mm handgun, Sig Sauer 9 mm handgun, a shotgun and one still unidentified gun. Mom reportedly “liked the singlemindedness of shooting.” She also “hoped, even with Adam’s problems, that he’d find a way to succeed.” Maybe, in his mind, anyway, he did. Please, everyone. Let’s all try to connect the dots on these types of developing situations and start taking action of some kind, any kind, to help prevent further catastrophes like Sandy Hook. Please!

Curbside recycling is the way of the future I would like to express my strong support for curbside recycling in Island County. Our family lives outside of the Town of Coupeville. We currently collect our recycling and self haul it to the Coupeville transfer station every two weeks. In addition we pay for weekly garbage pick-up. I support curbside recycling for the following reasons: I can avoid the trip to the county transfer station every other week and all the time it takes to load and unload my recycling; The additional cost for curbside recycling is minimal if you compare it to the time and cost of self hauling; The funding mechanism would be more equitable for all residents in Island County; We would achieve a higher recycling rate in Island County.

Why waste valuable resources by throwing them in a landfill? It is very important that we turn our valuable recyclables back into something useful. It is much more costly to society to use virgin resources to create new bottles, cans, paper, etc. As I identified in my 2011 Island County Resource Conservation Plan, “Curbside recycling represents the single biggest greenhouse gas emissions reduction opportunity in our county.” We as a county need to be more progressive. Curbside recycling has been in place in cities and counties across the United States for many years. We are the only county in our region without a curbside recycling program. Curbside recycling ignites conversations around resource conservation and can lead to bigger and better sustainability projects. I would like to express my thanks to the Island County staff for taking the leadership on this effort. I fully support this initiative and hope we can push this through in 2012. Cathy d’Almeida Island County

Remarks on loose dogs story is distressing Recently a story was published concerning two abandoned dogs running loose at Fort Ebey State Park who bit a gentlemen. While in itself, this is a very unfortunate situation. Not only was a person injured, but two dogs have been abandoned, who are obviously distressed. Note, they were happily allowing the female to follow them. However, even more distressing were the comments encouraging the “filling of the dogs with lead.” I’m paraphrasing of course, but more than one comment was encouraging the shooting of the dogs and not with a tone of remorse that I could discern. Have we become so hardened and insensitive that we don’t even reflect, and even almost relish taking these dogs’ lives? I would hope we’d look in the mirror and see what our own species has done, leaving these two animals to their fate, instead of the attitude of, “oh well, they’re just vicious dogs that deserve no better than to be pumped full of bullets.”

Tips offered for a safe winter Holiday travel, expected to be in full swing in just about a week, can be particularly expensive and stressful. Making sure to prepare in advance of upcoming travel for weather scenarios that might occur while you’re away is an important step to ensuring that costs and chaos are minimized. Being prepared can help you avoid weather-related incidents such as driving accidents and flooding in the house. If travel plans are in your near future, whether one day or multiple weeks, Take Winter By Storm — a regional campaign to help people get prepared before bad weather strikes — offers the following tips:

Take extra caution on roads The holidays mean significantly more traffic on the roads, often during seasonal

weather conditions such as rain, fog, ice and even snow, and more potential pitfalls in transit. These tips will help you stay safe and keep holiday plans on track: • If possible, plan your trip to avoid driving at night. Ninety percent of a driver’s reaction depends on vision, thus the night driving accident rate is about three times that of daylight driving. • Double-check to make sure you’ve got jumper cables in your trunk. Cold weather takes its toll on car batter-

ies. An easy jump-start could save you or someone you see on your journey a lot of time and hassle. • Have your vehicle properly serviced and stock it with items that might be helpful in case of a problem: thick blankets, extra food and water, coats and a flashlight. Visit the Take Winter By Storm website, takewinter bystorm.org. These tips and more can also be found on the State Farm Learning Center website at learningcenter.statefarm.com.

Try a bite of Coupeville By Kathy Reed Staff reporter

Enjoy a dinner out, add an evening of music and dancing, mix in an optional overnight stay and you’ve got all the fixin’s for the first ever “Take a Bite out of Coupeville” New Year’s Eve celebration, set to take place from 8:30 p.m. to 12:30 a.m. at the Coupeville Rec Hall. “It’s all about celebrating Coupeville,” said Mark Laska, owner of Ciao in Coupeville and one of the event organizers. Visitors and residents alike are encouraged to enjoy dinner at one of the town’s many restaurants, then head to the Rec Hall at 8:30 p.m. to enjoy music from Seattle group African Knights. At 10 p.m., Coupeville’s own John

“Bulldog” Tristao, lead singer of Creedence Clearwater Revisited, will take the stage to help rock in the New Year. A champagne toast will be provided at midnight and a cash bar will also be available to those 21 years and above. The Coupeville Lodging Association is also participating. A portion of the proceeds from overnight stays for those who attend the New Year’s Eve celebration will be donated to the Coupeville Boys and Girls Club, as will a portion of the ticket price. Cost to attend the party is $40 and Laska said tickets are going fast. “This is a great collaboration between the Coupeville Chamber of Commerce, restaurant owners and the Lodging Association,” he said. “The Boys and Girls Club seemed

to be a logical thing that everybody wanted to support.” Ticket holders will also be eligible for specials and discounts at participating restaurants: Brett’s Bread, Captain Whidbey Inn, Ciao, Coupeville Bistro, The Cove Thai Restaurant, Lavender Wind Farm, Mosquito Fleet Restaurant, Vail Wine Shop and Toby’s Tavern. The whole purpose of the event, besides providing a great New Year’s Eve celebration, is to promote all that Coupeville has to offer, especially its restaurants. “Coupeville is an eating destination,” said Laska. “There is something for everybody to eat in this town. “It’s the most amazing place in the U.S. in terms of what we’re growing, what the sound provides and how

our local restaurants are using those local products,” he continued. “It’s a truly unique destination, one of the great secrets of Whidbey Island — of Washington, really.” Laska said those involved in planning this event hope to have more activities that feature Coupeville’s eateries, perhaps in conjunction with the Coupeville Farmers Market, for example. “We look forward to doing a lot more community events with food to bring people here,” he said. Tickets for “Take a Bite Out of Coupeville” are available at the Visitor’s Information Center on NW Alexander Street, Toby’s Tavern on Front Street or Ciao on N. Main Street. Tickets may also be ordered by phone by calling Ciao at 360-678-0800.

Town council signs off on stormwater park By Justin Burnett Staff reporter

Plans for a forward-thinking stormwater remediation facility on an undeveloped property off NE Ninth Street took a big leap forward last week. In an unanimous 4-0 vote, the Coupeville Town Council wrapped up the last part of the land permitting process when it approved a conditional use permit for the 1.2 acre stormwater park. Councilman Bob Clay called the move a “wonderful step” for the town as it’s a demonstration of Coupeville’s willingness to invest in new and innovative techniques to treat stormwater. The town is pursuing the project of its own accord at a time when other communities are being forced to take steps to address their stormwater woes. “We’re fortunate enough to take the first steps on our own,” Clay said. “We’re ahead of the curve, I think,” he said. Similarly, Councilwoman Dianne Binder called it an “award-winning” project and said she won’t be surprised if it’s recognized by the Association of Washington Cities once completed. “It’s a step ahead,” she said. The new facility, which town officials say will be the first of its kind on the West Coast and serve as a model for other Puget Sound communities, will function as

Coupeville Engineer Greg Cane and Planner Larry Kwarsick go over plans for the stormwater remediation project off NE Ninth Street. The facility will treat stormwater for a 90-acre residential watershed basin. the final stage of stormwater treatment for a 90-acre residential watershed basin that drains into Penn Cove. The property was donated to the town for the project by Coupeville residents Chuck and Sandy Poust and is located behind the Coupeville Wastewater Treatment plant on the south side of NE Ninth Street. The planned park will work by filtering stormwa-

design changes were a subject of concern at the meeting. “The design is radically different from what we originally saw,” Councilwoman Molly Hughes said. “Really different.” The council was briefed months before with early design possibilities but nothing was ever decided. Plans have since been reviewed by the Ebey’s Landing Historic Preservation Commission,

ter through a system of three cells, most of which will be located underground. Each cell will be packed with wetland-type vegetation, making the facility look very much like a garden. While the council was overwhelmingly supportive of the nearly $700,000 project, more than $495,000 of which will be covered with grant funds, the planned vegetation and several recent

however. In a later interview, Hughes said she liked the newer plans better than the original but that she would

still like to see the final designs before the project gets started. In the end, it was agreed that the facility design would come back to the council in January. Also, finalized designs will go back before the preservation commission for additional review. Despite her concerns, Hughes was as excited about the project as the rest of the council. She congratulated Planner Larry Kwarsick and Engineer Greg Cane for their work on the project. “Good work guys,” she said. Mayor Nancy Conard did offer a word of caution, saying there is a check point later in the process. Once the design work is completed, the town will have to review the budget to ensure there are adequate funds for construction, which is expected to begin during the summer of 2013. “We’re being a little cautious about this because it is groundbreaking stuff,” she said. Councilwoman Jackie Henderson was not present during the meeting, as she was away on an approved absence.

Lunch: Coupeville schools meet tough meal requirements; from page 1 “In order to get the reimbursement, we must be following the program,” Wendell said. “We had to submit our menu and a worksheet that included what we were serving, how much we were serving and the nutritional analysis every day for a week.” “It was a few more hoops than it was before, but one thing I know is that there are always hoops. That’s just a fact of life,” said Janet Wodjenski, administrative assistant with the Coupeville School District. The new guidelines call for an increase in fruits and vegetables. The schools must offer a larger variety of nutrient-dense vegetables, including dark green, orange, starchy vegetables and legumes/beans. Students are required to take 1/2 cup of fruit or vegetable with their meal for it to be considered a full meal. The district must also offer specific amounts of whole

grains and proteins, which is why pizza crusts and pasta are all whole grain. Sodium has already been reduced as part of the program, but those levels will have to be significantly reduced again by 2015. There are five components to a meal: Grain, milk, meat/ protein, fruit and vegetable. In order to qualify for the reimbursement, a student must have three of those components, one of which must be a fruit or vegetable. “When they walk away with a plate of mashed potatoes, they’d better have a fruit and a vegetable too,” Wendell laughed. Currently the district serves about 225 meals per day at the middle/high school and the same at Coupeville Elementary School. In a typical five-day school week, that’s about 2,250 meals. If the district is reimbursed for each meal, it will get about $135 a week back. That may not seem like much, but every

little bit helps, said Wendell. “It will help with the cost of fruits and vegetables,” she said. “It costs more to offer them. If you want to have a variety, you have to pay for it.” Changing children’s eating habits can also be difficult. Wendell said they are doing a lot more education in elementary school and getting children to try things while they’re younger to help broaden their taste horizons. Offering healthier meals is especially beneficial for those children who may not eat much otherwise. “For some kids, this is their only meal all day,” Wendell said. “Some of them have maybe never seen a vegetable.” The number of children in the Coupeville School District who qualify for free or reduced lunches has been on the rise. Wodjenski said it’s unknown whether the need is growing or whether newer,

Jeannett Wendell prepares a healthier pizza option for students at Coupeville schools last week. more relaxed criteria from the state means more students are eligible for the benefit. Knowing the meal served at school is healthier than ever

is good news for those local families who are struggling to put food on the table. “I think it’s a great service for families,” Wodjenski

said. “Between our local food banks and schools offering free or reduced lunches, I know that helps a lot of our families.”

Jail: Coupeville planner pleads guilty to falsifying document; from page 1 mayor, Kwarsick is currently the planning director in Coupeville and previously worked as the planning director in Langley and Island County. “What you did was to betray that public confidence,” Churchill said. “I’m sorry, I don’t think anyone who does that should remain in office.” Kwarsick pleaded guilty to one count of false report of a public official for falsifying a document when he was Langley’s contracted community planning director in 2011. He admitted to backdating a document related to his stepdaughter’s home construction project to make it look like his predecessor wrote it, then filing it with the city. The document, which Kwarsick wrote on his home computer to appear to be an official city report, improperly removed conditions from the project. Kwarsick sat quietly dur-

ing the hearing, appearing sad and contrite. He spoke briefly on his own behalf. He said he had “a long history of integrity” and that his actions were an ethical breach, regardless of the severity. “I’m proud of my 40 years of public service,” he told the judge. “I am not proud to be here in front of you.” Island County Prosecutor Greg Banks said he worked out a plea agreement with Kwarsick’s attorney, Charles Arndt of Coupeville. Under the settlement, Banks and Arndt both recommended that Kwarsick receive a suspended 364 day sentence, which means no jail time, and pay a $2,500 fine. In addition, Banks said Kwarsick admitted his guilt to malfeasance and would no longer be able to hold public office. In an interview afterward, Banks said the law and a Supreme Court decision appeared to be clear on this point, but there’s no auto-

matic mechanism to remove a mayor for malfeasance. Banks conjectured that Kwarsick’s attorney may read the law differently and that Kwarsick could simply continue going to work, at least until some other court action forced him from office. Kwarsick didn’t return a call for comment. Monday, Arndt emphasized that Kwarsick was taking responsibility at the earliest possible time. It is very rare, he said, for a defendant to plead guilty at arraignment. The courtroom was crowded with Kwarsick’s supporters, including several council members, but there were also a few detractors. “Mr. Kwarsick has made some friends and enemies in his role of planning director of Island County and the city of Langley,” Banks noted. Several of the people who spoke on Kwarsick’s behalf urged the judge to allow him

to continue as mayor because he’s done such a stellar job since taking office in January. “Larry Kwarsick has accomplished more in one year than any other mayor in a long time,” Councilman Bruce Allen said. Councilwoman Rene Neff said a lot of people would be grateful if Kwarsick could remain in office. Councilman Jim Sundberg asked the judge to consider the context of Kwarsick’s actions; he claimed the mayor caused little or no harm to the public. He suggested that the $2,500 fine be reduced. On the other side, a couple of environmentalists said the former planning director deserved to be punished. Ken Pickard of Coupeville said Kwarsick’s “serious” crime warranted more than a $2,500 fine. Langley resident Marianne Edain said her public records request, which she

later sent to blogger Skip Demuth, brought Kwarsick’s illegal action to light. She claimed that she found even more irregularities in Langley planning documents. “It is necessary for a public official to be trustworthy,” she said. “When a document is altered, the trust is broken.” In pronouncing her sentence, Churchill emphasized how disappointed she was in Kwarsick’s actions after his lengthy career in public service. She said it’s vital that public officials always keep their ethical standards high. Churchill said most of the people who come before her haven’t had the advantages in life that Kwarsick has had. “You’ve been blessed with your intelligence, your demeanor, your ability to get people to trust you,” she said. In addition, Churchill made it clear that Kwarsick shouldn’t get leniency be-

cause of his position in the community. “If I didn’t act here, it would be because of the ‘good old boys’ system,’” she said. Churchill threw out the plea bargain and instead sentenced Kwarsick to 15 days in jail. Arndt asked whether his client could serve the time as electronic home detention, but the judge refused. She did, however, agree to allow him to serve the sentence beginning Feb 4, which means he won’t be spending Christmas in jail. Afterward, Langley resident Carol Kerley, who attended the hearing to support Kwarsick, said many people were appalled by Judge Churchill’s comments. She said it seemed unprofessional to suggest that Kwarsick was part of a “good old boys’ club.” “Our trust wasn’t broken,” she said. “He’s done so much for our town.”

Wolves return home for big win CHS downs Falcons after starting year on the road By Jim Waller Staff Reporter

It’s time to get Roehl’n’

at the end of the quarter. South Whidbey pushed that lead to 15-10, but the Wolves dominated the remainder of the quarter and went to the locker room with a 26-15 advantage. King said, “In the sec-

ond we did a better job on defense and getting out and running; our defense got our offense going. We shared the ball well and executed our offense.” Five different Wolves scored in the second period

By Jim Waller Staff Reporter

A strong final frame couldn’t undo the damage from the first three as the Coupeville High School boys basketball team fell 57-37 to visiting South Whidbey Friday. The Falcons held the Wolves to eight or fewer points in each of the first three quarters and steadily pulled away. South Whidbey led 16-8, 31-15 and 51-23 before the Wolves out scored the Falcons 14-6 in the final period. Coupeville coach Anthony Smith said, “They were more aggressive than us early. A team is often a reflection of their coach, and Henry (Pope) likes to get after it.” “We dug a little hole early,” Smith added, and the Falcons put the game away by out scoring the Wolves 20-8 in the third quarter. Smith, who tried different mixtures of players throughout the game, said, “We finished well.” Since the Wolves are 0-6 (0-3 in conference), Smith said it won’t hurt to experiment to find which kids “want to play.” Morgan Payne, for example, has played well in junior varsity games and may see more varsity action, Smith said. Coupeville received “pretty good games” from Nick Streubel, Carson Risner and Caleb Valko, according to Smith. Streubel pitched in with 11 points and 12 rebounds, Ris-

Aaron Trumbull had four points, Josh Wilsey three, Aaron Curtin three, Drew Chan two and Anthony Bergeron two. The Wolves have two nonleague games this week after hosting Sultan Tuesday. Today they head to Friday Harbor (0-4) for a 4:30 p.m. game, then Saturday Orcas Island (2-0) comes to Coupeville at 3:30 p.m.

Coupeville’s Hailey Hammer draws a crowd of South Whidbey defenders in the Wolves’ win Friday.

Falcons capture round 1 of rivalry

GRACE BY THE SEA • ANGLICAN CHURCH

Home is where the wins are. After playing its first five games on the road, the Coupeville High School girls basketball team finally played on its own floor and it was a happy homecoming, defeating rival South Whidbey 39-24 Friday, Dec. 14. Coach David King said, “It was good to be home and playing in front of our home crowd. The girls could feel the energy the fans brought.” For the second game in a row the Wolves limited their opponents to single digit scoring in three quarters. The strong defense combined with a season low 13 turnovers helped Coupeville even its season mark at 3-3 (2-1 in conference). The Wolves got off to a good start, hit a bit of a bump and then went on an 18-0 run that bridged the second and third quarters to put away the Falcons (03, 4-4). Bessie Walstad sank the game’s first two hoops to help Coupeville go up 8-2, but behind Madi Boyd’s six points, the Falcons led 12-10

with Amanda Fabrizi, Bree Messner and Jai’Lysa Hoskins each getting four. Coupeville’s offense slowed in the second half, scoring only half as many points as the first, but its defense made sure the Falcons never got back into the game. The Wolves led 32-19 after three quarters. Coupeville received strong all-around games from a number of players. Messner scored a season high 12 points and added six rebounds, and Walstad finished with seven points and Hailey Hamer six. Hoskins had six points and “many hustle plays on the defensive end,” according to King. Makana Stone collected six points, five rebounds and three blocks. Fabrizi recorded four points, six rebounds, three steals and three assists. King said, “Overall this was probably our most complete game in the young season from start to finish with everyone contributing.” Coupeville goes back on the road today when it travels to Friday Harbor (0-4) for a 6 p.m. nonleague game. It returns home for a non-conference game with Orcas Island (2-0) at 5:30 p.m. Saturday. Results of Tuesday’s game with Sultan were not available at press time.
