Schools prepare for ‘fiscal cliff’ By NATHAN WHALEN Staff reporter

Spending reductions and tax increases associated with the pending federal “fiscal cliff” could hit the pocketbook of the Oak Harbor School District. School officials are bracing for about $1 million in reductions should federal lawmakers fail to reach an agreement by the end of the year to avert across the board spending cuts and tax increases that are scheduled to take place in coming weeks. Rick Schulte, superintendent of the Oak Harbor School District, said the school district will see an immediate reduction of approximately $500,000 in Impact Aid funding. Impact Aid is a federal pot of money for school districts that have significant populations of students from military families or from Indian reservations. Those students often live on federal lands, which don’t pay local property taxes and place a financial burden on the local school district. “The challenge is the cut to Impact Aid will take place in the middle of the year,” Schulte said. He said the reduction to Impact Aid will take place immediately, which is after officials had already set the school year budget and already made decisions about staffing. The Oak Harbor School District is budgeting to receive just over $4 million in federal dollars and the district received $4.5 million in Impact Aid during the previous school year.

Schulte noted the federal funding has declined in recent years. In 2007, the school district received approximately $6 million in Impact Aid. Impact Aid isn’t the only federal funding source that will be affected by the “fiscal cliff.” Schulte said he is expecting around a $500,000 reduction in special education. He said that reduction won’t be felt until next year because the allocation for the current school year has already been made. That reduction would affect the district’s most needy students and provide a severe challenge, Schulte said. Schulte lobbied legislators in Washington D.C. in September, but said they didn’t have any solutions for the situation. In Coupeville, officials are expecting to see reductions in funding in federal programs, such as learning assistance and Title I, but Superintendent Karen Koschak said she didn’t have a firm dollar amount. Because the federal dollars fund essential programs, the Coupeville School District will have to transfer dollars earmarked for such things as textbook adoptions and staff development, Koschak said. Schulte said $1 million in expenditures is frozen and won’t be made until things improve. Those expenditures include custodial and maintenance supplies and classroom supplies. “We will not spend it until we know we have it,” Schulte said.

State Rep. Norma Smith talks with Oak Harbor School District Superintendent Rick Schulte before a meeting Tuesday where school officials advocated for their legislative priorities.

State reps. plan legislative priorities By NATHAN WHALEN Staff reporter

Oak Harbor school officials are hoping to see a delay in regulations that could interfere with career and technical classes at the high school. School board members met with State Rep. Norma Smith recently to discuss legislative priorities for the upcoming session. Those priorities include delaying regulations that could affect career and technical education, the proper funding of schools and compensation. School officials are concerned proposed changes to graduation requirements will reduce the number of electives students could take for career and technical education, arts and band classes.

The proposed requirements, known as Core 24, increases the number of credits students have to complete in order to graduate, but school officials are concerned that additional requirements will reduce the number of electives students are able to take. Career and technical education is a topic Smith advocates. It readies students to enter the workforce. “It’s about thousands of jobs in this state that go unfilled because these kids are unprepared,” Smith said during the meeting. School officials often are quick to highlight the high school’s career and technical program, which was a major part of the high school’s remodel that took place years ago. The high school

offers classes in such areas as culinary arts, auto repair, computer aided drafting and robotics. Schulte said after the meeting that he would like to see work on the new requirements delayed and the money and resources could be moved to more pressing matters. The school board and staff attending the meeting also advocated for improving compensation. Schulte noted staff would like to see the 1.9 percent pay cut restored and said the legislature has to stop suspending I-732, which requires cost of living increases for teachers. It has done that for four years and will continue for the next two. Schulte and the school board are also advocating

for the legislature to make progress complying with the McCleary decision, a Washington State Supreme Court ruling that said the state hasn’t been fully funding education.

Juggling provides laughs and dexterity By NATHAN WHALEN Staff reporter

Amid the instruments and musicians practicing, another group of people were at an Oak Harbor music store doing something a bit different. About six people were in a large room at Click Music honing their juggling skills and having a lot of fun doing it. The informal group of jugglers, known as the Whidbey Island Jugglers, spend their Wednesday evenings at the Oak Harbor music store tossing clubs and balls to each other and off the walls to improve their dexterity. “There’s nobody in charge,” said Joy Thompson, an Oak Harbor resident. “We just come and practice together.” She added that members come together to teach others, improve their juggling abilities, laugh and have fun. The group has been meeting every Wednesday night for about a month. Currently about a dozen or so jugglers stop by to practice. Thompson spent part of the session tossing plastic clubs to her husband,

“You can’t stay worried while you’re doing this. You’re laughing too hard.”

Click Music, which is located on NE Seventh Avenue in Oak Harbor. Thompson said the high ceilings in the room the jugglers use are a help. While a half dozen or so group members Julie Wilson, were busy juggling, juggler bands and musicians were busy rehearsing in performance rooms contained in the building. Thompson cited Bellingham residents Amiel Martin — of the Flying Karamazovs and the Juggling Jollies — along with his wife, Hallie, as mentors to the group. It will cost an eager juggler $3 to participate in the session. Equipment is provided. The money raised pays for the room and development of a website. The Whidbey Island Jugglers meet Wednesdays from 6 p.m. to 8 p.m. For more information, simply show up or email WhidbeyIslandJugglers@

Dave, while others were busy tossing small, four-ounce balls around. Thompson said she started juggling before ukelele lessons she had been taking. Fellow juggler Glena Kelso, who started the hobby several months ago, also uses it as a break from her piano lessons. “It uses a different part of my brain,” Kelso, who also spent time tandem juggling with her husband, Duncan, said. “It relaxes me.” Oak Harbor resident Julie Wilson, who is also a quilter, produced several balls that the group uses. The fabric balls were filled with plastic beads or aquarium gravel. “You can’t stay worried while you’re doing this. You’re laughing too hard,” Wilson said while showing off several of the balls she produced. The group has been meeting at

Oak Harbor approves purchase of rescue aid truck By JESSIE STENSLAND Staff reporter

A simple request for a rescue aid truck for the Oak Harbor Fire Department may win the award for the most scrutinized and controversial equipment purchase in city history. The city council finally approved the request from the fire chief during a heated special meeting Thursday evening. It marked the fourth time in four months that the council was asked to approve the purchase of the $128,000 truck. The motion passed in a 5-1 vote, with Councilman Joel Servatius voting against the purchase. Councilwoman Beth Munns was absent. Mayor Scott Dudley called the special meeting in response to Councilman Rick Almberg’s motion at the last regular meeting to hold a workshop with North Whidbey Fire and Rescue; Almberg suggested the city could save a great deal of money by purchasing a used rescue truck from North Whidbey. Thursday, North Whidbey Fire and Rescue officials answered questions about the trucks that may become available, but Oak Harbor

Fire Chief Ray Merrill made it clear that the trucks didn’t meet his department’s needs. The rest of meeting didn’t exactly go as smoothly. At one point, Councilman Joel Servatius interrupted Mayor Scott Dudley, yelling “point of order” as the mayor spoke over him and Councilman Jim Campbell slammed his fist on the table. “Once again I take an affront, I find it offensive when someone raises a point of order. Your job as presiding officer is to acknowledge that person, not to speak over them,” Servatius later said to Dudley. In an unusual twist, Servatius admitted to contacting one of the companies that lost the bid to supply the city with the rescue truck; he said the company now says they have a truck with the specification the city needs. He made a motion to re-bid the process. Dudley told Servatius that he overstepped his bounds by contacting the company. The mayor said he contacted Municipal Research and Services Center and was told that Servatius “tainted the process.” He said re-bidding could lead to a lawsuit.

Jessie Stensland/Whidbey News-Times

Lt. Don Baer with the Oak Harbor Fire Department demonstrates the difficulty in finding and retrieving rescue equipment from the crammed compartment of the rescue aid truck the department is replacing. Servatius’ motion lost in a 1-5 vote. Almberg then made a motion to defer the decision on the purchase to the next regular meeting when the city attorney will be present. The motion lost on a 2-3 vote. In the end, Almberg said he was reluctantly joining

Councilman Jim Campbell, Councilman Bob Severns and Councilwoman Tara Hizon in passing a resolution to buy the truck. While Oak Harbor firefighters finally got their rescue truck, the contentious process has left them a little hot under the collar. Firefighters, as well as the mayor, believe the long delay was political payback over a controversy related to the appointment of the fire chief, but the council members say they were simply looking out for the city’s fiscal welfare. “It’s not a political issue for me and I’m certainly not doing this to be antagonistic,” Councilman Rick Almberg said in an interview before the Thursday meeting. Almberg said he put the purchase request under a microscope because he felt the fire chief was giving council “a sales job” in order to get a truck he had chosen before going out for bids. As a result,

Almberg said he discovered less expensive alternatives that he felt should have been explored. Mayor Scott Dudley isn’t buying it. “It’s absolutely political,” he said. “There’s no justification for it. I’ve never seen this kind of micromanaging from the council before.” Firefighter Steve McClamont, the president of the firefighters’ charitable organization, agrees. “It looks political wrangling to me,” he said. “Do they really hate the mayor that much? We just need a front-line vehicle.” The tension between the fire department and a few members of the council goes back to the beginning of the year when Dudley came into office and fired a series of people in management positions, including the fire chief. Dudley then appointed Merrill, but some council members balked

because they felt Dudley had promised the job to Merrill in a political maneuver before coming into office. Merrill was eventually confirmed during a raucous meeting at which many firefighters were present to support him. Then in the summer, the council approved a request for the fire department to go out to bid for a rescue truck. The bids came in, but the majority of council members were concerned about the city’s financial challenges and deferred the purchase until after the budget was approved and the firefighters’ union negotiations were complete. McClamont said Almberg’s motion that tied labor negotiations to the purchase of equipment rubbed the firefighters the wrong way and may have violated labor law. “I think he was walking a fine line,” McClamont said.

Letters to the editor History


Touched by holiday Start reading America’s history reunion story Editor, I’ve moved from Whidbey Island to Bellevue, but I still read the papers online. I wanted to let you know that Kathy Reed’s story and especially the picture of Nathan Dixon and his mom touched me more deeply than any other Christmas photos in any paper anywhere. The look on that child’s face and his hand clinging to his mother’s uniform brought tears. I hope they’ll be reunited for good before long. Military life takes a toll on the kids that adults don’t always fully appreciate. I was an army captain’s wife and know whereof I speak. Thanks for your good writing and for capturing the very essence of love between a child and mother, particularly appropriate this season. Molly Larson Cook Formerly of Coupeville

Christmas Home Tour was successful Editor, On behalf of Soroptimist International of Oak Harbor, I would like to thank everyone who participated in our fourth annual Christmas Home Tour on Dec. 8. A special thank you to Rebecca Olson who did a wonderful article for us in the Whidbey News-Times Holiday Guide! If you know someone who would like to be on next year’s tour, the second Saturday in December, please call Barb at 360- 679-8531. Thank you! Barbara Jacobs Soroptimist Int’l of Oak Harbor

Editor, After reading Ronald Cope’s letter to the editor, my first response was a broadside retaliation, but after cooling off for a while, I realized that was exactly what he wanted. It a long standing liberal tactic to draw people into an emotional argument when you don’t have facts or reason to back you up. As far as the Second Amendment, exactly what is irrelevant? Is it the part where I defend myself? Or defend my family? Is it irrelevant to defend you? The Second Amendment is what keeps the other 26 amendments,theConstitution and the Declaration of Independence in place, protecting you from having your property confiscated, allows you to say anything you want when you want, keeps you out of prison because some petty bureaucrat doesn’t like something about you. Maybe you should read the Declaration of Independence, the Constitution and the Bill of Rights to see the past and current relevance in them. The United States is under attack from “progressive” liberals who are educated far beyond their intelligence, even further from wisdom, distant from lessons in history and are horribly determined to repeat failures the founding fathers’ extreme efforts tried to prevent from reoccurring. Mr. Cope is solidly a “progressive” in my opinion, so my advice is, paraphrased, “be careful what you wish for, you might get it.” If you like, I can drop off a

Curbside recycling is not needed Editor, Well, the letters seem to be pouring in concerning the subject of paying for curbside recycling. Why wouldn’t we be supportive of this service? If mandatory, wouldn’t those who currently don’t recycle start doing so? They would be paying for it. Wouldn’t that be a big improvement in the reduction of “solid waste?” With Coupeville for an example, why couldn’t the whole county just jump in? I really don’t know what

effect it would have except for me. Everyone else has their own life to live. I recycle and have for many decades. I do pay for a monthly solid waste pickup and I put out my trash can about every other month because I rarely fill a can in a month’s time. I go to the recycling center about every three months with what I have accumulated and most of that is glass, which is not picked up in Coupeville. So, how much would a mandatory curbside pickup change my mode of living? I try to live a healthy diet and I minimize use of packaged foods. I believe that I am relatively healthy. Medicare became a mandatory service decades ago and I have been contributing to others’ care for decades. Why shouldn’t I do the same for curbside recycling, paying for something I don’t need?

Community could curb gun violence Editor, Recently we wanted to buy new binoculars, and so we drove off island to a store recommended to us because of its wide selection. Unknown to us, the store was also a prominent gun shop. An informed salesman satisfactorily helped select the best binoculars for us, but I could not resist remarking to him that I wondered who bought the machine guns that dominated the wall display, and how could anyone justify selling them. With that a gun salesman appeared behind another counter and told us that it was a matter of just being a “boy scout.” When I said there must be a joke with that he responded with a smile and a smirk: “Be prepared.” We purchased our binoculars and left the store, but a mile or two down the

road we both agreed that we would always associate the new binoculars with the gun shop and the machine guns, and we decided to immediately return them. As we were getting our money back, next to us the gun salesman was completing the required stack of paperwork for the sale of a handgun to a very stressed young man in his twenties. I watched the tense young man as he completed the purchase, clenching his jaw, nervous, tense. I wondered who he was “preparing” for. Perhaps others who are concerned about gun violence may want to consider boycotting businesses that sell machine guns, semi-automatic handguns and other weapons notoriously used on other humans. Legislation is certainly necessary to curb gun violence, but perhaps withholding our business from anyone selling these guns may also support the effort. Tom Ewell and Cathy Whitmire Clinton

Severe storm wallops Coupeville Wharf By NATHAN WHALEN Staff reporter

A severe storm that hit Whidbey Island left Port of Coupeville officials scrambling to find someone to make repairs to a fuel float. The high tides and highspeed winds that marked the Dec. 17 storm caused the brackets on one of the two 40-foot concrete fuel floats at the Coupeville Wharf to fail. Port staff was able to secure the float before it drifted away.


Norma Jean Eastwood

Norma Jean “Jeannie” Eastwood

Norma Jean “Jeanie” Eastwood was compassionate, selfless and gracious in all that she did. She was a loving mother, wife, sister, daughter, grandmother, great grandmother and friend. She was a pillar of strength and wisdom for all that knew her. Jeanie was born on September 13, 1942 in Evansville, Ind. where she spent her childhood and teenage years. In her first year at North High School she met Jim Eastwood, the man she would spend the next fiftyfive years with. They dated all four years of high school and after graduation Jim joined the navy. They were married April 22, 1961 after Jim completed boot camp and training. Honolulu, Hawaii

was their first duty station but Jeanie spent most of her years as a military wife on the east coast. While stationed in Maryland Jim and Jeanie got orders to Whidbey Island and after a cross country car trip with three daughters and a small dog they arrived in February of 1978. Having already worked for a small construction company in Maryland, Jeanie found a job with Island Construction where she worked for many years. In October of 1983 their fourth daughter Lindsey was born. Eventually she went to work for Yonkman Construction where she stayed until she retired in 2008. She loved being outside on warm sunny days, if the sun was out, so was she! She loved to sit at the beach either by herself with a coffee or with her daughters and grandchildren playing at Rocky Point. She loved the warmth of the sun and the sound of the water. If she had to sit inside on sunny days she sat by a window where the sun was streaming in so she could feel its warmth and light. Warmth and light describe Jeanie. She had a sacrificial love for people her whole life. She believed with all of her heart that Christianity is something you do and she was always “doing.” Not only was she always there for her family she would give her time and energy to anyone who needed help. Over the years she helped elderly friends with everything from meals to laundry to maneuvering through hospital stays and legal matters. After she retired she made the ultimate sacrifice and moved away from her daughters and grandchildren back to Indiana for three years where she and Jim took care

of her mother, her sister and her father-in-law. While still in Indiana in March of 2011 she was diagnosed with malignant melanoma. Compassionate and “other centered” as always, she made sure her family members in Indiana were taken care of before returning to Whidbey Island in October of that year. She fought with everything she had but on December 13, at home with her family, she went to be with the Lord. She is loved and survived by her husband Jim Eastwood, her four daughters Cheryl Yonkman, of Oak Harbor; Angie Tuller, of Stanwood; Terry Bartilson, Farmington, Minn. and Lindsey Eastwood, of Seattle; her eight grandchildren, two great grandchildren, her sister Helen Jennings, Evansville, Ind. and her cousins Carlos Wallace and Mindy Dockery, of Indiana and Jackie Headly and Carolyn Powers, of Florida. She was preceded in death by her step-father Albert Baird, her mother Helen Baird, and her baby grandson Brandon Terrell. A memorial service to honor Jeanie’s life will be held 2 p.m. Friday Jan. 4 at Living Word Fellowship in Oak Harbor. Mark Engel, Minister from Oak Hill Church of Christ, Evansville, Indiana will officiate. In lieu of flowers we ask that you remember Jeanie by making a donation to the SHIBA Program thru Island County Senior Services or by donating to any hospice organization of your choice. Friends and family are encouraged to offer condolences and share memories utilizing the Memory Book hosted by Wallin Funeral Home at www.wallinfuneralhome. com.

Jim Patton, executive director for the Port of Coupeville, said the float was taken to Captain Coupe Park near the town’s wastewater treatment facility, where it could be pulled from the water. A work crew from Northwest Docks, a trailer and a crane, pulled the 13-ton float from the water Friday. It will be towed to Anacortes for repairs. Jim Guy, owner of Northwest Docks — the company the Port of Coupeville tapped to make the repairs, noted it was a difficult time of the year to complete such repairs. The windy conditions make it difficult for crews

to work and the moisture makes it impossible for the epoxy to cure. Patton said he doesn’t know yet how long it will take for repairs because of the holiday season. The fuel floats have failed several times in recent years. The damage this time was more extensive. “These brackets are so far gone that they have to get ripped off and new ones put on again,” Patton said. The Dec. 17 storm battered low-lying areas of Whidbey Island that caused flooding in some areas of Island County. A renter of a West

Beach Road home lost his possessions when the bulkhead protecting it failed and waves severely damaged the structure. Patton said winds reached 40 knots and the tides were 13 feet. The emergency repairs come at a time when the Port is developing specifications for a request for proposals to find a company who would construct and install replacement floats. Patton said the current floats have to be replaced because Penn Cove Shellfish uses the Coupeville Wharf to refuel its fleet.


James Vannice

James Rodney Vannice James Rodney “Jim” Vannice was called to be with the Lord on December 16, 2012, surrounded by his family. He was born July 16, 1922 to Merwin and Grace Vannice near Lewiston, Idaho. For a time, the family lived near Clarkston, Wash., the Willamette Valley in Oregon, Reubens, Idaho, Clarkston, Wash. and on to Westport, Ore., where Jim graduated from high school. July 9, 1941, Jim made a choice to enlist in the U.S. Navy. Following boot camp in San Diego, he was assigned to NAS Sand Point in Seattle. With the Dec. 7, 1941 attack on Pearl Harbor, school was cut short and Jim was sent to NAS Kodiak, Ark. 1944 saw new orders back to NAS Sand Point and then transferred to NAAS Arlington, Wash. While in Arlington, he met the love of his life, Ethel Robertson and four months later they were married. The next duty assignment was NAS Anacostia, near Washington D.C. and son James Jr. joined the family. Jim had attained the rank of Chief Petty Officer and decided to leave the Navy

in 1947. The family settled at Lake McMurray, building their first home. Employment was very poor and Jim soon came to the realization he needed to reenlist. He was assigned to the last PBY (Catalina) squadron at NAS Whidbey. His next rotation was to the P2V (Neptune) squadron, VP-4 and deployments to the Western Pacific. He then rotated to VAH-2, a new squadron fleeting up with the new A3D (Skywarrior) aircraft. During this time, daughter Jacqueline “Jackie” was born. In 1956, Jim received notification he had been selected to be commissioned as an Ensign in the Limited Duty Officer (LDO) program. He was assigned to NAS Whidbey and VAH-4, followed by a tour on the Comfairwhidbey Staff as A3 Maintenance Officer. His next orders were to VAH-123 as Maintenance Control Officer. In 1966, Jim reported to Atsugi, Japan and in 1969, received his last assignment with Staff Comfairwhidbey as the A-6 Maintenance Officer. On August 1, 1971, Jim retired from the Navy with 30 years of service, a veteran of WWII, Korea, Vietnam and the Cold War with the rank of Commander (O-5). Following retirement, Jim and Ethel set out on their first major civilian adventure, commercial fishing off Neah Bay and LaPush, which lasted nine years. The Masonic Fraternity became a very important part of Jim’s Life. In 1953, Jim joined the Mt. Baker Lodge No. 36 F&AM, serving as Master in 1980. He also served the Grand Lodge


of Washington. In 1988 he was elected Junior Grand Warden and also served as Grand Master in the 1991/92 Masonic year Jim was a member of the Whidby Island Lodge #14, Garfield Lodge #41, Kettle Falls Lodge #130, Hermanos del arte Lodge #314, Walter F. Meier Lodge of Research #150, Grand Mound Historic Lodge #3 and Bannack Historic Lodge #3-7-77 in Montana. He was a member of the Scottish Rite bodies, holding the rank of 33rd degree honorary and a member of the York Rite bodies. He was a member of the First United Methodist Church of Oak Harbor. He was also a former member of the Board of Trustees of Whidbey Federal Credit Union and a City of Oak Harbor Planning Commission. He is survived by his wife the former Doris K. Frazier and by son James Jr. (Christine), daughter Jacqueline Vannice-Zahrt (Marc), by grandson Jay (Anita), Granddaughter Jemesa Treadwell (Kevin) and granddaughter Elizabeth Roth (Andrew). 3 great grandchildren, Sophia Treadwell, Cooper Treadwell and John Vannice and siblings Elizabeth Sawyer, Richard Lee Vannice (Virginia) and Robert Merwin Vannice (Joan) also survive.

Kentwood snapped Oak Harbor’s four-game winning streak 57-45 at the 42nd annual Bellevue College High School Tournament Thursday. The Wildcats upped the string to four with a 60-56 win at Ferndale Friday, Dec. 21. Coach Mike Washington said Kentwood “killed us on the boards (20-10) in the first half.” The rebounding edge and cold shooting by Oak Harbor helped the Conquerors increase a 12-9 first-quarter lead to 31-16 in the second quarter before a small flourish by the ‘Cats just before the break trimmed the gap to 33-23. Oak Harbor trailed 41-33 after three. Kentwood (5-3) finished with a 38-25 edge in rebounding and out shot the Wildcats 44 percent to 37. JoJo Webster led Oak Harbor with 15 points, Chris Hailer had 11 points and eight rebounds, Dayne Herron scored eight points, Drew Washington three, Donavan

Sellgren three, Dyllan Harris three and Gabe Groeing two. Mike Washington said, “We could have beaten that team. We just didn’t play well; we didn’t play smart. I’m very disappointed in our effort.” The Ferndale (4-5) game was close throughout. The two teams were tied 9-9 at the end of the first quarter, Oak Harbor led 23-21 at the break and the two were tied again 42-42 heading into the fourth period. The teams were tied 11 times in the game and there were 12 lead changes. In the final frame, Oak Harbor steamed to a 57-48 lead and held on for the win. Herron scored 14 points, Drew Washington 13, Webster 13, Hailer nine, Harris nine and Groeing two. Hailer just missed his third consecutive doubledouble, snaring 11 rebounds. Washington, however, got his first by grabbing 10 rebounds. Oak Harbor (5-3) finishes up the three-game Bellevue Tournament today, the time depending on last night’s outcome versus Monroe (2-6).

prep roundup Coupeville boys suffer bitter loss to Vikings The last year and a half for the Coupeville boys basketball team has been a tough go and full of rugged defeats, but the 66-61 loss at home to Orcas Island Saturday, Dec. 22, may be the most bitter. It was oddly officiated, and the passionate Coupeville crowd let the referees know. The Wolves were whistled for 31 fouls to the Vikings’ 13. That resulted in a 23-for-28 night at the line for Orcas Island to just 6-for-10 for Coupeville. Coupeville coach Anthony Smith said, “I don’t like to blame officials, but it was a differently called game. There was no rhythm; every five seconds there was a call.” One Coupeville player, Nick Streubel, fouled out and four others finished with four fouls. Monitoring the foul situation also kept the Wolves from finding a rhythm, Smith said. Coupeville played well early, running to leads of 21-14 after the first quarter and 32-28 at the half. The third quarter was the turning point as the Vikings out scored Coupeville 25-13 and took a 53-45 margin into the fourth. Smith said, “We couldn’t do anything in the third quarter.” Aaron Curtin led the Wolves with 12 points, Ben Etzell had 10, Drew

Strong second half carries Wolves to win By JIM WALLER Sports editor

John Fisken/Whidbey News-Times

Makana Stone scores on a put back for Coupeville against Orcas Island last Saturday.

Chan nine, Streubel eight, Aaron Trumbull seven, Carson Risner six, Caleb Valko five, Morgan Payne two and Anthony Bergeron two. Jack Gates piled up 36 points for Orcas Island and Jake Zier had 21. The 61-point effort kept Coupeville in the game, and, for once, it wasn’t a lopsided loss. The moral victory, however, was tainted by the atmosphere of the game. Smith said, “This one will stick with me for a few days.” Coupeville (0-4, 0-9) goes to Everett to meet Archbishop Murphy (2-2, 2-3) at 7 p.m. Wednesday.

Poor shooting, slow start sink Wildcat girls The Oak Harbor girls basketball team went into a deep freeze midway through its nonleague game with visiting and undefeated Ferndale Friday, Dec. 21, and the chilly result was a 70-48 loss. The Wildcats then stumbled out of the gate against host Bellingham and lost 58-46 in the Prostock Winter Classic Thursday. Against Ferndale, Oak Harbor led 15-12 after the first quarter and upped the lead to 21-14 before turning ice cold. While Oak Harbor was missing 16 consecutive shots, the Golden Eagles hit 12-of-19 and went on a 29-4 run that spanned the second and third quarters to go up 43-25. Ferndale (7-0) led at the half 29-23 and 47-29 at the end of the third

quarter. The Golden Eagles finished the game shooting 51 percent (30-for-59) and Oak Harbor 30 percent (16-for54). The Wildcats shot only 20 percent (5-for-25) during the second and third periods. Annie Leete and Jalani Bobo each scored 15 points for Oak Harbor. Ciera Wiser had 10 points and nine rebounds. Natalie Fiallos finished with four points, Liz Lym two and Hayley Lundstrom two. In the Bellingham loss, the Red Raiders went up 12-1 and led 21-13 at the quarter. The Wildcats, with the help of eight points from Leete, cut the gap to five, 32-27, at the half. That would be as close as Oak Harbor would get as the Red Raiders (7-4) outscored the Wildcats 14-5 in the third quarter. Oak Harbor hit only one of eight shots and committed nine turnovers in the period. Leete and Bobo again scored 15 points. Wiser added six, Kelsey Rankin four, Lundstrom two, AnnaBelle Whitefoot two and Jinai Guzman two. Rankin led the rebounders with six. Both teams shot well, with Bellingham hitting an impressive 55 percent (24-for-44) and Oak Harbor 47 percent (16-for-34). The Red Raiders committed only 10 turnovers to Oak Harbor’s 27. Oak Harbor (3-6) finished the twoday tournament with Tahoma yesterday; the results were not available at press time. Oak Harbor goes to Sedro-Woolley (2-7) at 7:15 p.m. for a nonleague game Wednesday.

After letting the past two games slip away in the fourth quarter, the Coupeville High School girls basketball team wasn’t about to let it happen again. The Wolves used a 19-0 run in the second half to defeat visiting Orcas Island 39-31 Saturday, Dec. 22. The teams took turns controlling the quarters and the Wolves’ domination of the fourth was the difference. The Vikings took charge early, going up 14-4. The second quarter belonged to Coupeville as it out scored Orcas Island 10-2, making it 16-14, Vikings, at the break. The third was Orcas’ turn and it upped its lead to 27-20 going into the fourth period. The fourth was all Coupeville as the Wolves out scored the Vikings 19-4 to reverse the trend of recent fourth-quarter melt downs. Breeanna Messner led the final-frame assault with

10 of her 12 points. She hit a pair of threes and pulled in several offensive rebounds during the run, according to coach David King. Bessie Walstad helped fuel the spurt with a block that led to a fast-break lay-in and ignited the Coupeville offense. Walstad finished with 12 points and six rebounds, Hailey Hammer had seven points, Makana Stone four, Rhiannon Ellsworth two and Haley Marx two. King said, “It took us to the middle of the third quarter to get back to playing basketball.” He said the Wolves were playing hard early but kept misfiring on good shots in the lane. “We preach to the kids that defense is the key,” King said. “When we make stops it helps us get out and run.” The Wolves (2-2, 4-5) return to Cascade Conference play at 7 p.m. Wednesday when first-place Archbishop Murphy (4-0, 6-1) visits.

Close-knit community

Middle schoolers use knitting abilities to make scarves for needy By REBECCA OLSON Staff reporter


he clacking of knitting needles is a steady background beat to the chatting and laughter of about 20 North Whidbey Middle School students each Wednesday afternoon. Knitting needles worked yarn in every color of the rainbow and slowly, scarves began to form at a recent Wednesday afternoon meeting of the unofficial knitting club. In January, the students will donate their hard work to the North Whidbey Help House. Last year, teacher Mary Ann

Duhrkopf taught her Home Economics class how to knit and they made scarves for the Help House, among other projects that benefited the community. She had leftover yarn that was donated by various families for that project so Duhrkopf joined forces with teacher Shaunna Holcomb to create an after school knitting club. Students have been hard at work since the week before Thanksgiving. “I think it’s good for the kids to help people,” Duhrkopf said. Last year, the Help House was “really thankful” to receive scarves made by students, Duhrkopf said. Her students also sewed quilts

Saturday, December 29, 2012 • Whidbey News Times

for Wounded Warriors and held a canned food drive last year. Projects like these let kids know that people need various kinds of help and that the kids can offer their talents to the community in helpful ways, Duhrkopf said.

Giving back Students sat in groups around the classroom, giggling and chatting while they worked. “We’re trying to do something kind,” eighth-grade student Lauryn Boelke said, continuing to knit as she spoke. “I love doing this right now at

Christmas. I like the feeling of giving to people even though I don’t know them,” said student Lindsay Gross. “I like giving,” Hollie Dunn agreed. “At least now we can give them a little warmth, comfort,” said eighth-grade student Emma Lerch of the people who will receive the scarves. The four girls learned how to knit before joining the club, thanks to help from teachers, grandmothers or friends from church. As community members learn of the students’ decision to use their talents to give back to the community, Boelke said she wants people to realize, “Everybody’s not just greedy. There are people out there

willing to help in times of need.” “The holiday season isn’t just about receiving, it’s about giving,” Lerch added. It isn’t very difficult to make a scarf, Gross said, but giving it as a gift can mean a lot. “The community can know that to make a change is very important to us,” Gross added. Duhrkopf and Holcomb taught student Angel Froelke to knit and she was hard at work forming a ball of shiny green yarn into a warm scarf. She said she wants the community to know “that knitting is awesome and to help the Help House.” “It’s like a gift from us for Christmas,” added student Valerie Wylie.

Fellowship teaches God’s plan to his people and to everyone Earlier this month a group of us from my church attended an enjoyable and enlightening day-long seminar presented to churches in our denomination. We learned several things that day. We learned that we can drive to Seattle in a car together and love every minute of the trip. We were reminded that we are very different people but value our shared Christian faith and believe Jesus Christ to be as relevant in our modern lives as He was in His ancient world. We are people who long to be a vital force on Whidbey and recognize


that timehonored approaches to church membership rarely appeal to the average young per-

son today. With these facts I and the church family with whom I serve look to 2013 with these questions: What will be the big issues next year?

Who will come to our church facility and how can we help them in practical, life-changing ways? How can we share God’s love with people who don’t see a need for church participation? How can we determine what God wants us to do in 2013? Like most churches here on Whidbey, we are made up of a small group of paid professionals and a larger team of volunteers. The people who attend and serve at our church donate money to support our staff, keep our buildings in good order

and fund programs that help people here on Whidbey and around the world. We worship together and meet weekly in small groups to pray and study and support each other. We serve on teams to produce activities and provide services to our church members as well as people who walk into our facility, asking for help or simply wanting to discover what it is we believe and do. Some of our work is known to many; countless tasks, however, are done quietly without fanfare or any expectation of public acknowledgment. We make

use of our talents because it is fun, it helps others, we enjoy the challenge, we see God work and we feel connected and helpful, appreciated and loved. We marry and bury. We laugh and cry. We agree and disagree. We Facebook and text. We exercise together and talk about our lives over coffee. This past week we purchased Christmas dinners and provided Christmas gifts for families and in so doing deepened our own joy. Recalling the birth of Jesus Christ signals the start of our church calendar year. In the days and weeks

to come we will once again study the events of Christ’s life — with the expectation that in so doing our faith will be deepened and we will become forces of good and love in our world, in gratitude. We will meet and pray and talk. We will strategize and pray some more. We will invite God to work through us. We’ll do all this because we long to be relevant. Loving. Generous. Forgiving. Hopeful. Energetic. Peacemakers. Strong. Smart. God’s people. Interested? Email me at

In the military recently offered an appointment to the United States Naval Academy Class of 2017. This is the 24th time an Oak Harbor High School student has received an academy appointment over the last 11 years. Navy Petty Officer 1st Class MELINDA J. AMBERS, daughter of Beverly A. Watkins of Oak Harbor, along with nearly 12,000 past and current crew members, family and friends attended the inactivation of aircraft carrier USS Enterprise. Enterprise, the world’s first nuclear powered aircraft carrier, recently completed its 25th and final deployment and returned to its homeport of Naval Station Norfolk for a scheduled inactivation, held prior to the ship’s terminal offload program and subsequent decommissioning. The inactivation ceremony was the last official public event for the ship, and served as a celebration of life for the ship and the more than 100,000 sailors who served aboard. In honor of that spirit, Secretary of the Navy Ray

Jessica Fain JESSICA FAIN graduated from Marine Boot Camp in Parris Island, S.C. Fain is a 2012 graduate of Oak Harbor High School. Fain’s grandpa Chuck King, grandma Suzy King, dad Ricky Fain and brothers Blake, Nick and Alex congratulate her. The tradition at Oak Harbor High School continues. Navy Junior Reserve Officers Training Corps Cadet HARUKA EARNEY was

Mabus, in a video message played at the ceremony, announced that the name Enterprise will live on as he officially passed the name to CVN-80, the third Ford class carrier and the ninth ship in the U.S. Navy to bear the name. A veteran of 25 deployments to the Mediterranean Sea, Pacific Ocean, and the Middle East, Enterprise has served in nearly every major conflict to take place during her history. Ambers is a 1995 graduate of Franklin D. Roosevelt High School of Dallas, Texas

and joined the Navy in July 1997. Navy Seaman Recruit KYLE J. WALSH, a 2011 graduate of Oak Harbor High School, was recently promoted to his current rank upon graduation from recruit training at Recruit Training Command, Great Lakes, Ill. Walsh received the early promotion for outstanding performance during all phases of the training cycle. Training included classroom study and practical instruction on naval customs, first aid, firefighting, water safety

and survival, and shipboard and aircraft safety. An emphasis was also placed on physical fitness. The capstone event of boot camp is “Battle Stations.” This exercise gives recruits the skills and confidence they need to succeed in the fleet. “Battle Stations” is designed to galvanize the

basic warrior attributes of sacrifice, dedication, teamwork and endurance in each recruit through the practical application of basic Navy skills and the core values of honor, courage and commitment. Its distinctly “Navy” flavor was designed to take into account what it means to be a sailor.
