Violence imperils Whidbey skyline Element’s license Oak Harbor council schedules meeting to discuss nightclub By JESSIE STENSLAND Staff reporter

The Oak Harbor City Council is holding a special meeting next week on one issue: the possible revocation of a popular bar’s nightclub license. Following an executive session on potential litigation, the City Council passed a motion last week to hold a special meeting at 6 p.m. Tuesday, Jan. 29 to discuss the possible revocation of the Element’s nightclub license. “Their license is coming due, so it’s a good time to discuss the issue,” said Councilman Jim Campbell, who made the motion. The Element Nightclub on Bayshore Drive has been the subject of City Council discussion for years. Most of the concerns have centered on noise complaints from residents in nearby condominiums. But over the last year or so, law enforcement officials have become alarmed at the number of violent incidents connected to the Element, culminating in the beating death of 23-year-old Chris Cooper last November. The police believe he was at the Element prior to the fight that left him unconscious a few blocks away. At a Dec. 20 Public Safety Standing Committee Meeting, See Element, A8

The spectacular colors proved too much of a temptation for many motorists to resist as cars lined the side of Bayshore Drive and Pioneer Way. Some, like Garcia, took pictures while others were content to simply watch in awe.

Commissioner Johnson rams message home to Old Goats By JUSTIN BURNETT Staff reporter

Jill Johnson, Island County Commissioner

“I don’t like bullying. I don’t like it,” Johnson said. “It doesn’t work well with me, it’s not effective. If you’re somebody who wants to get something from me as a county commissioner, you need to have

good ideas. They need to be thought out and well presented.” “I’m not going to meet your standard, ‘My way or the highway,’” she added. “I’m not going to bully you back or call you names. I’m

just going to disengage. That’s how it is. I’m a county commissioner elected to serve the people of Island County.” And for the “more conservative” members of the audience, she had a special message. “I’m disappointed in you, just like you’re disappointed in me. I’ve been on this job two and a half weeks and you expected what, some kind of blind loyalty, some kind of no thought behind my decisions? That’s what you thought you were going to get? I don’t think you know who you voted for,” Johnson said. “I’m going to think it through and do what’s right. You have four years

to vote for somebody else who will blindly follow your cause. I’m going to make good decisions for Island County.” Johnson’s pointed comments came at the end of a 35-minute talk and were in response to strong criticism she’s received since taking office late last month, See Johnson, A8

Island County Commissioner Jill Johnson doesn’t like bullies and she isn’t going to be blindly loyal to her political party. If that hadn’t already been made clear by her record during her first two weeks in office, the freshman Republican commissioner dispelled any misconceptions about how she plans to approach her job, and deal with harsh criticism from fellow party members, during an Old Goats-Fully Informed Voters luncheon on South Whidbey this past Friday.

“I’m going to think it through and do what’s right. You have four years to vote for somebody else who will blindly follow your cause. I’m going to make good decisions for Island County.”

Rangers get creative on goose control Cranberry Lake remains closed to swimmers due to E. coli

He said park staff members will be trying out some scare techniques, such as placing coyote cutouts throughout the troubled area. In addition, he said they’re going to apply grape seed extract in the area around the lake. The extract tastes foul to the fowl, but Hartt noted that the extract is expensive and it has to be re-applied after it rains. “It’s a multi-pronged approach,” Hartt said. “We’re doing everything we can to get those levels down.” He added that the staff’s efforts to combat the geese will come up during an open house scheduled for 7 p.m. Thursday, Jan. 24, at the Cornet Bay Retreat Center at 400 W. Cornet Bay Road on North Whidbey Island. After county health officials closed the swimming area, which is located on the west side of Cranberry Lake, attendance at the state park plummeted. He said the park lost tens of thousands of dollars of revenue

Months after a popular swimming hole in Deception Pass State Park was shut down due to contamination, park officials are trying out creative solutions to the problem. Officials had to close the Cranberry Lake swimming area in July 2012 because of persistently high levels of E. coli bacteria in the water. Those levels were caused by copious amounts of droppings from the 60 to 80 geese that often congregate in the area. Jack Hartt, manager of Deception Pass State Park, highlighted several things staff will do to discourage the honkers from congregating near the popular swimming hole.

A small sandwich board warns potential swimmers to avoid going into the waters of Cranberry Lake, which is located at Deception Pass State Park. Park and health officials last summer closed the beach to swimming because of high levels of E. coli bacteria. Park officials have been working to find a solution to the problem since. because of the closure. Cranberry Lake isn’t the only area where park staff is having problems with goose droppings. Canada geese have been congregating near the Cornet Bay Retreat Center, which was recently renovated and includes lodging for 180 people. Jill Wood, environmental health director for Island County, said county staff is continuing to monitor water condition at Cranberry Lake. The most recent reading, which was taken in November, found that E. coli levels were nearly seven times the state standard. A county health worker filled

Northwest Navigator falls to budget cuts The Northwest Navigator, the Navy’s contract newspaper for this region, will print its final weekly edition on March 29, Navy Region Northwest announced Friday. After March 29, there will no longer be an official or authorized Navy print newspaper for Commander, Navy Region Northwest; Naval Air Station Whidbey Island; Naval Station Everett; Naval Base Kitsap and Naval Magazine Indian Island. “This is the end of an era, but we still have Navy information to share and stories to tell,” said Sean Hughes, public affairs officer at Navy Region Northwest. “We will continue to communicate through our official Navy channels and, of course, work with area publishers and media representatives to further our Navy’s story with our communities. We will continue to explore new ways to communicate in this fast-changing media landscape, and look forward to keeping the conversation going.” The Northwest Navigator, which is published by the Kitsap Sun and was formerly published by Sound Publishing Co., won numerous awards for production and reporting, and has helped tell the Navy story to tens of thousands of sailors, family members, retirees, veterans and residents. “We’re going to be reaching out even more to the community and to Whidbey News Group to get the stories about the base and our personnel out there,” said Mike Welding, Public Affairs

Officer for Whidbey Island Naval Air Station. “We’ll also be using social media like Facebook and our website to get the word out.” The decision to stop publication was made as a Navywide cost-savings measure, Hughes said. “This was a tough headquarters decision in a belttightening world,” Hughes said. “We’d like to thank everyone who made The Northwest Navigator a part of their lives, the outstanding publishers we’ve worked with over the years, and all of those who helped us share the stories of our fleet, fighters and families.” Lori Maxim, vice president of Sound Publishing Co., said in response to the news, “It’s a sad day,” noting that the Northwest Navigator has a long history. Sound published the Northwest Navigator for several years before the Sun won the contract. Sound then launched the Kitsap Navy News and a new Whidbey Crosswind as weekly publications covering local Navy news. Those publications were transitioned to a monthly format for veterans and retirees in April, 2012. The Kitsap Navy News is now published as Veterans Life. Both the Whidbey Crosswind and Veterans Life are also available online as green editions. Hughes said his office will make Northwest Navy news and information available in many formats, including on Navy social media pages, websites, and in internal command employee newsletters.

Rehabilitated horse needs new home Volunteers give Thunder a new life By JESSIE STENSLAND Staff reporter

A gentle giant that goes by the name Thunder has a predilection for treats. He sniffs them out and rummages through coat pockets with his nimble equine lips until he gets what he’s after. It’s a big change in personality for the 10-year-old Thoroughbred gelding. The big horse and a mare were seized from a North Whidbey man who neglected them and withheld proper food and medical care. Thunder was wary of people and a little defensive, but he’s been molded into a giant puppy dog of a horse thanks to the kindness and hard work of many volunteers. And now he needs to find a permanent home. Island County Animal Control Officer Carol Barnes took the two horses into protective custody last summer, but found herself between a

rock and a hard place. Island County government doesn’t have any funds or facilities to deal with large animals. Fortunately, the island is filled with people who love horses and are willing to help those in need. Barnes helped found Whidbey Island Farm Animal Assistance Program to defray the cost of feed, medical care and other necessities. But Barnes said the horses really owe their lives to the many volunteers, who include Wendy Thorne, Pam Price, Kim Knott, Jerry Gravo, Jennifer Roberts, veterinarian Robert Moody and the M-Bar-C-Ranch. Mike and Michelle McKay, along with their 16-year-old daughter Taryn, have fostered Thunder over the last four months and transformed him through the power of tender loving care. “When he first got here, he wouldn’t take treats and he wouldn’t take affection,” Michelle said. Taryn, who rides in international competitions, has a great deal of experience with horses and is very patient with them. Her mother said

Jessie Stensland / Whidbey News-Times

Taryn McKay gives a kiss to Thunder, a neglected horse that her family fostered back to health. she spent a lot of time with Thunder and helped bring him out of his shell. Nowadays the big lug enjoys interacting with people, especially when there’s treats involved. He stands still for the vet, the horse chiropractor or the farrier.

“He’s come a long way in the trust department,” Mike said. Thunder will soon be available for adoption at an approved qualified home. Barnes said he has a lot of potential and would make a good trail horse for an expe-

rienced rider. He’s a big horse, standing at about 16.2 hands. Applications are available at animal control at 360-2405542. The mare rescued along with Thunder has already been adopted by a North Whidbey family.

Antenna concerns hashed out

Sheriff sees spike in gun permits

By NATHAN WHALEN

A wounded Army veteran caused a bit of a stir at an Oak Harbor City Council meeting last week when he admitted to being armed. Just how unusual it is for someone, other than a cop, to bring a gun into a council meeting, a standing committee meeting or any other kind of meeting in City Hall is difficult to know. Hundreds of people in Island County have concealed weapons permits. At least two City Council members have licenses to carry, though they both have said they haven’t come to a meeting armed. Law enforcement officials on the island don’t keep a running tab on the total number, but a permit becomes part of a person’s record if he or she is stopped by police. Island County Sheriff Mark Brown said 874 people have applied for concealed weapons permits at his office since a new reporting system went online in July. He said the number of applications seemed to increase in

About a dozen or so neighbors living near Island Transit in Central Whidbey came to a meeting with questions about an antenna officials want to install as part of its new headquarters. Island Transit officials want to install a 40-foot antenna behind the agency’s new maintenance facility. The new antenna will help improve communications with the transit system’s buses and improve communications between emergency services. Martha Rose, executive director for Island Transit, said she’s received several phone calls concerning the proposed antenna. She noted that the antenna will eventually replace ones that are slated to go on the headquarters and maintenance buildings. The proposed antenna will extend 10 feet higher than the maintenance building. “That tower won’t be taller than the other antenna on the maintenance facility,” Rose said during the Monday evening meeting.

Nathan Whalen/Whidbey News-Times

Island Transit executive director Martha Rose talks with a resident about a proposed 40-foot antenna Officials had an extended cherry picker placed in front of the Island Transit headquarters to give folks an idea of the height of the proposed tower. Nearby resident Louise Harvey questioned why the new antenna wasn’t addressed when Island Transit applied for a building permit. Rose said the antenna project, which was budgeted in the project and will cost approximately $35,000, wasn’t ready yet. Island Transit held the public meeting Monday night as a requirement to get the antenna approved by Island County. Joe Sheldon, who is a board member for the Pacific Rim Institute for Environmental Studies, questioned if the new tower will have lights. Rose said it won’t. Because the tower doesn’t extend above the trees and won’t affect birds flying at night, he said he doesn’t have any issue with

the tower. Officials said the tower will help Island Transit communications by eliminating dead spots and improving communications with buses on Camano Island. It will also help law enforcement and other emergency services. Those agencies can use the Island Transit antenna for their communications, which Rose said will improve “interoperability” between emergency agencies on Whidbey Island and the Olympic Peninsula. “This is part of emergency planning that has been going on for years,” Island Transit board member and Coupeville Town Council member, Bob Clay said. Island Transit is currently constructing a new headquarters campus that includes an administration building and a maintenance building large enough to house 12 bus bays.

November then spiked after the school shooting in Connecticut. “We’re seeing a huge number of people requesting concealed weapons permits,” he said. “We’re always busy with that.” His office received more than 500 applications since November, which doesn’t include people who live in Oak Harbor. Those applications are handled at the Oak Harbor Police Department. Brown said the process isn’t difficult. A person has to fill out a form and get fingerprinted. It takes 30 days to complete a records check to ensure that the applicant is qualified. Felony or domestic-violence convictions, for example, disqualify people from possessing guns. Brown said the applicants’ mental health histories are now checked through the Department of Social and Health Services to ensure they are qualified to own a gun. If everything checks out, Brown said a concealed license permit is issued to the applicant. There are no subjective decisions involved. “If they qualify, they get it,” he said. “That’s the law.”

Kwarsick will earn $50 an hour to ‘clean up files’ By Justin Burnett Staff reporter

Larry Kwarsick has plead guilty to falsifying city records in Langley and will spend two weeks in jail next month for the crime, but he still has a job in Coupeville and will be earning $50 an hour. Earlier this month, the Coupeville Town Council agreed to terminate Kwarsick’s existing contract as town planner, an action he requested, but then agreed to rehire him to provide interim consulting services while officials search for a permanent replacement. The council also greenlighted Mayor Nancy Conard’s strategy for finding that replacement, a plan in which she appoints herself the town’s official planner

until the position is filled. It’s unclear how long the recruitment process will take or how long Kwarsick’s services will be retained; Conard said it would be at least a couple weeks but could last a few months. “I wish I could say,” said Conard, responding to questions from council members. Laying out all three proposals, the mayor made it clear that Kwarsick’s interim services will not be as a planner. Instead, the agreement is for Kwarsick to aid in the transition process mainly by doing administrative work. He has been a one-person department for nearly 10 years and it would be helpful, said Conard, to have him work on an hourly basis to “clean up the files” and “get

the computer records in order” for his replacement. In December, Kwarsick plead guilty to a misdemeanor crime for altering a permit for a family member’s home while he was Langley’s planning director in 2011; he was also the Coupeville planning director. Kwarsick stepped down from the post after being elected Langley’s mayor, but that position was short lived as well. Last year, an online blogger wrote a series of articles, titled “How many hats are too many?” about Kwarsick’s role in government. It led to a whistleblower complaint from Langley’s new planner and ultimately a review by Island County Prosecutor Greg Banks.

Larry Kwarsick In a series of events since, Kwarsick was sentenced to two weeks in jail and resigned as mayor. Based on state law that restricts anyone convicted of malfeasance from holding a public position, Banks is now pursuing legal action to ensure that Kwarsick never again holds a public office. How Banks may respond to the town’s rehiring of Kwarsick was a topic of concern at the council meeting. Councilman Bob Clay said he was worried the action may get the town or Kwarsick in

more trouble. Conard said she shared those concerns and claimed that recent attempts to contact the prosecutor had been unsuccessful. She did, however, discuss the issue with the town’s attorney — the law firm Weed, Graafstra, and Benson — and was told that the town was on solid legal ground. As Kwarsick would not be workings as town planner or as a SEPA official, hiring him to perform interim consulting services likely would not violate the letter of the law, she said. In an interview Friday morning, Banks said his plans to secure a court order that will forbid Kwarsick from ever again serving in public office are unchanged but that he doesn’t plan to scrutinize the town’s decision. “It sounds to me like they are trying to do something reasonable both for the citizens and abide by the law,” Banks said. “I’m not going to express any opposition to that move,” he said. According to Conard, the town’s attorneys also suggest-

ed she temporarily appoint herself as the town’s official planner. She said Kwarsick, who was hired in late 2003, will be challenging to replace and this is way to ensure that the town can continue to fulfill some of its lighter planning obligations. Long-term planning efforts, such as code or comprehensive plan updates, will be parked until a permanent replacement is found, said Conard, but short-term planning shouldn’t crawl to a stop. She made clear that while she would oversee permit work and provide an official signature, the heavy lifting would be done by other town officials, such as the engineer and building official. A short-term consultant may also be tapped if needed, she said. Council members voiced several questions and concerns on the three proposals and Conard acknowledged that they weren’t a perfect solution. They are a shortterm stopgap, she said. The interim services agreement with Kwarsick includes a sunset clause of 90 days.

Base commander ventures south By KATHY REED Staff Reporter

Members of the South Whidbey Rotary hosted a very important person from the north at the group’s meeting Tuesday morning at the Useless Bay Golf and Country Club in Langley. Several members of the Whidbey Westside Rotary were also in attendance. Capt. Jay “Tank” Johnston, commanding officer of Naval Air Station Whidbey Island, was the guest speaker. He shared a brief overview of NAS Whidbey, explaining the tenant commands housed on base and the role those commands play in NASWI’s overall mission. The strategic location of Whidbey Island couldn’t be better for protecting U.S. interests in the Pacific, Johnston said. Lighter flight patterns mean more open air space and our geographic location is closer to heavily traveled shipping lanes. Of particular interest however, was the noise issue arising from Field Carrier Land Practice at Outlying Field just south of Coupeville. “The noise issue hit a new level of complaints this year,” Johnston said, explaining there were actually fewer flights in 2012 than the previous year, but that there were more complaints than ever. Johnston noted carrier landings are difficult and require practice on land before a squadron can be deployed to a ship. “It’s a very difficult thing to do. You’ve got to get the two back wheels and the

It takes practice,” he said. “Coupeville is a prime training area, because it’s dark, isolated and allows pilots to focus on what they’re doing.” Each pilot practices six “touch and go” landings during each flight, Johnston said. Each squadron has three or four planes, meaning a total of at least 18 or 24 of the maneuvers at a time, which, he acknowledged, means it can get noisy. There are currently 14 squadrons on NAS Whidbey. Three of those squadrons are expeditionary, meaning they are landbased and do not conduct flight operations at OLF.

Complaints, he said, are taken seriously. “We track every noise complaint we get,” said Johnston. “We will call every caller (who leaves a number) back. But there really is nothing we can do to change the training.” Johnston praised recent efforts of community and Navy leaders to begin publishing some limited practice schedules to give people a general idea of when flights will take place. But in the end, Johnston

said, it all comes down to safety and security. “Believe me, there are a lot of things those crews would rather be doing at 2200 hours on a Thursday,” Johnston said. “But we’re out there working hard to get the job done.” Johnston, who took command of NAS Whidbey Island in August, 2010, will be moving on to another post soon. His change of command ceremony is scheduled for Feb. 22.

Levy isn’t just a school issue, it’s a community issue Residents should be getting their ballots for the Oak Harbor School District levy vote this week. As voters review their ballots and weigh the pros and cons, I urge people to remember this isn’t just a school issue, it’s a community issue. Schools weigh heavily on the culture and economic health of a community. Where schools thrive, communities thrive. Oak Harbor School District’s current levy brings in just under $1 per $1,000 of assessed value. Officials are now asking for $1.98 per $1,000. By approving the levy, the district will be able to keep the teachers currently funded by the existing levy and also add some lost by state budget cuts. It will also bring new materials and equipment for students and restore programs also lost by cuts. There has been a lot of public dialogue about all of the things the levy will do, but there hasn’t been discussion about what would happen if the levy doesn’t pass. I sat down with school officials last week to discuss the levy and I posed the question. It’s something they don’t want to think about. “Failure is not an option,” Superintendent Rick Schulte told me. If voters don’t approve the replacement levy, the effects will ripple through the community. The district estimates 100 people could lose their jobs both by the immediate loss of funding from the levy and then after families leave the district. Officials estimate more than 300 families would leave in the first year because the district could no longer offer competitive education. Families leaving the district will take with them all the money they spend in the community, hindering Oak Harbor’s economic growth. When families move into an area they look at the school districts. With as much turnover from military families moving in and out, what’s stopping them from choosing to live off island? The levy is more than a school issue, it’s a community issue. In order to keep Oak Harbor thriving, all aspects of it must be healthy. Oak Harbor School District cannot be healthy without community support. I encourage everyone to vote in favor of approving the levy. —Megan Hansen, Editor

Letters to the editor Education

You never know the impact schools can have Editor, Kids need to feel a significant sense of achievement and be acknowledged for it. Engaging in the arts is one of the best ways I know to achieve this. Participation in the arts gives young people the opportunity to challenge themselves and receive a positive response at the same time. Such experiences do wonders to fuel a child’s faith in the power of dreams. At Broad View Elementary I have watched many students take a huge step when they get on the stage for the first time, or when they transform a lump of clay into a treasured object. When they do it, they see immediately that they are capable of pushing

beyond the limits of what they thought they could do. As they work on artwork or performance, they learn they are helping bring an artistic creation to life. Recognition for their achievements is a powerful affirmation that their dreams are worth pursuing. The National Endowment for the Arts released a report in March 2012 showing that among at-risk students, more than twice as many kids with involvement in the arts planned to pursue a professional career (law, medicine, education, or management) as those that had no experience with the arts. To put it simply, the data shows that the arts make kids’ lives better. It’s clear to me, there is nothing more important than that. Robert Kennedy said it so well when he said, “There are those who look at things as they are, and ask why. I dream of things that never were and ask why not?” Whether we are parents, educators, or arts instructors there is so much we can do to prepare our children to

achieve success in life. We can choose activities that will help young people interact with, stand out, be heard and dream big — for that is what they need to succeed in today’s society. I wish to thank the Oak Harbor community for their continued support of the art, music and physical education classes funded by the school levy. It has been a privilege to serve this community as an elementary art specialist for 12 years. You never know the impact education will have. Nicolette Harrington Oak Harbor

Letters CONTINUED FROM A6

Council Chambers. There was an awesome presentation by the Oak Harbor Youth Commission that was very informative and worthy of support. After the presentation when questions were offered I listened to Councilman Jim Campbell rant about why the “bad” kids are getting all the attention and nothing is offered for the “good” kids? I find that in today’s climate and change we still have people labeling others and refusing to see how that label can be detrimental to the cause. If I had listened to the labels while I was in school I probably wouldn’t be here. Therein lies the point. Labels can be one of the biggest things involved in drugs, alcohol and suicide among our kids. We have many programs for the socalled “good” kids that are also open to the so-called “bad” kids; why should we use more resources in a situation being maintained at a high level when it’s not needed? The kids that are having trouble is where our focus should be. These aren’t “bad” kids, they’re just kids that weren’t as lucky as the “good” kids when it came to resources or mentors. Labeling does nothing but set them up for the failure we seem so determined to afford them. All of our kids are “good” kids, some do bad things, but it’s the action that is bad, not the kid. I challenge Councilman Campbell to stop trying to throw a wrench in and maybe attend an event to see the good this group is doing, instead of armchair criticisms. The focus is on kids, not labels.

Gun control

Stricter law will make it safer Editor, I am not a member of the NRA, nor am I “anti-gun.” I have served in the military and understand and respect weapons. I am for responsible gun ownership and use, and I believe it is time for a serious local and national conversation about gun control. Historically, the NRA has dominated the conversation and hijacked the 2nd

Amendment for its own purposes to support gun manufacturers and anti-government paranoia. The NRA presents a false choice. They say that you either need to be for unrestricted gun ownership or for confiscation of all weapons. Neither of these extremes is desirable; the answer lies somewhere in the middle. These are some issues I think should be in the gun control discussion: First and foremost, all weapons, equipment and ammunition used for hunting should be legal and available. Secondly, government should have the authority to restrict gun ownership from certain people such as children, ex-convicts and the mentally ill. In order to enforce this there needs to be some form of background check done prior to procurement of a weapon. Licensing of weapons and gun safety classes should be considered requirements of gun ownership much in the same way we control the use and licensing of motor vehicles. Gun safety should require that all weapons not in the direct control of a licensed owner should be locked in a safe, and/or secured with a trigger lock. Ammunition should be secured in a separate locked area. There is also a legitimate limit to the type of weapons, equipment and ammunition that should be legal. In my opinion, there is no legitimate reason for civilians to own automatic weapons or other

www.WhiDBEYNEWSTIMES.com

weapons of war. Large capacity clips should be illegal. Their only purpose is to provide the capacity to kill more, faster. Likewise, armor piercing ammunition or other exotic ammo that exists solely for the purpose of doing extreme damage should be illegal. None of these has anything to do with hunting. Consideration should also be given to limiting the volume of ammunition owned by an individual. In addition, laws should make penalties for armed offenses much more severe than those where weapons are not used. Gun owners who allow guns to fall into the hands of children or other unauthorized individuals should also suffer severe penalties. I am completely aware that one or some of these measures will not in and of themselves make us safer. I do not believe, however, that we should do nothing. There is an even more important, and related, discussion about the state of our mental health system and the social issues that lead to gun violence that needs to take place. I am certain, however, that limiting the access to certain types of weapons, controlling who can get weapons and establishing standards for responsible gun ownership with penalties for failures to comply would be great progress toward making our communities a safer place for our children to live. Art Huffine Oak Harbor

Disarming citizens makes a target Editor, Like Pandora’s Box, we have opened the box and can no longer put back what we have brought forth. As a species, we humans have, since man first stood upright, looked for bigger and better ways to kill our fellow man. Guns are just one of the many things we let out of the box, but like the others, we cannot put them back. Why, you ask? Simply because those who would do us harm would not, and there for the rest of us cannot. Disarm the citizens and you leave them open to be preyed upon by those no law will ever disarm. Prime examples: Australia disarmed its citizens and the next year crimes involving firearms skyrocketed. Israel had a school shooting incident; they train their teachers to shoot and carry weapons. No new school shootings since. The United States has as many or more gun control laws on the books as any country. Every time there is a new shooting that outrages the public, we enact more laws, but what we don’t do is provide the funding to enforce the laws we already have. No criminal is going to enter a place knowing there is a good chance of being shot. They want sheep, too meek

Page A7

to fight back; not sheep dogs with the will and fangs to fight back. Take a minute and think about just the latest shootings. Do you honestly believe either shooter would have gone into that theater or school if they thought there was any chance they would be killed? They are probably crazy, true, but not stupid. They both wanted soft targets.

has brought a wholly different experience, one that precludes all of those activities, one that is fraying people’s mental and physical health. No one signed an agreement to endure the unsustainable, unbearable bombardment of the Growler. What I/we don’t understand is the resistance of those in positions of decision making time to sit down with our community and address our concerns and seek alternatives. I am unaware of any one that does not agree that it is imperative for this training to occur. The question is, where are there air fields that provide the conditions necessary to train that do not impair the health and welfare of citizens? There are alternatives, out of population areas, where pilots could train without traumatizing others. I hope this can be addressed.

Option

Need to find other options for OLF Editor, There have been two recent articles related to the Outlying Field in Coupeville, each attesting to the urgency of the need to continue the important pilot training that takes place there. There seems to be an underlying message, in these articles, that people may not acknowledge, understand, or care, just how essential this training is. I would like to point out that nothing could be further from that perception. I have lived below the touch and go flight pattern for 40 years. Admittedly the noise has been an intrusion, but it was tolerable; it was possible to sleep, talk on the phone, watch TV, work, garden, or be outdoors on a nice summer night around a fire at the beach. Unfortunately the Growler

Element CONTINUED FROM A1 Oak Harbor Police Chief Ed Green advised council members that he had recommended to the mayor that the Element’s nightclub license be pulled or not renewed. He went through the history of complaints associated with the club; he said the number of complaints went down a little in 2010, but climbed again in 2011. Green said he received detailed information from the Island County Prosecutor’s Office about a number of serious felony cases tied to the Element. A 26-year-old Oak Harbor man, for example, was sent to prison last year after slashing another man’s throat with a beer bottle inside the Element. Green said there have been two drive-by shootings associated with the Element. In addition, the city’s planning commission has been looking at a solution from a different angle. City

www.WhiDBEYNEWSTIMES.com

staff members proposed the possibility of amending the city’s nightclub ordinance by reducing the number of patrons allowed in a nightclub. Under the city code, nightclubs are defined as businesses that sell alcohol and play music after 10 p.m.; Food sales must make up less than 75 percent of receipts. On the other side, Mike Kummerfeldt, the owner of the Element, defended the club and its publicsafety record. He spent a lot of money on surveillance cameras and security personnel to deal with the complaints. He said the club isn’t doing anything illegal and has had fewer noise problems than ever before. “I’m not too worried about next Tuesday’s meeting,” he said. Yet Kummerfeldt admits that he’s been trying to sell the club over the last six months and has some interested buyers. “Running the club was a good experience, but it was not something I planned on doing for the rest of my life,” he said.

Island County Commissioner Jill Johnson is introduced by Rufus Rose at the Old Goats-Fully Informed Voters at the Useless Bay Golf and Country Club on South Whidbey Friday.

Johnson CONTINUED FROM A1 largely for decisions she’s made that have been in opposition to fellow Republican Commissioner Kelly Emerson. The Old Goats began as a conservative and Libertarian discussion group on South Whidbey about 25 years ago. It now meets monthly at the Useless Bay Golf and Country Club and hosts speakers of all political walks. Past presenters have ranged from county commissioners and department heads — regardless of party — to a Superior Court judge and members of the military, said Rufus Rose, the moderator and one of the group’s founders. “The only real rule is you have to be reasonably polite,” Rose said. The crowd of about 40 people adhered to the rule very well, despite the direct approach Johnson took in dealing with the complaints of a few critics, some of whom may have been in the room. In fact, the freshman commissioner appeared to be fairly well received. One man, South Whidbey resident Chuck Leavitt, even credited Johnson with being one of the best speakers the group has had in years. “I think we picked a winner, ladies and gentlemen,” Leavitt said. “In the words of the Navy, Bravo Zulu.” Johnson covered a number of topics during her speech but seemed to spend much of her time on the defensive, jus-

tifying her reasons for making various decisions since taking office and even explaining her silence on select issues this past December, such as curbside recycling and proposed shooting rules. She also addressed the more recent “hubbub” that arose out of conflict between the board of commissioner’s public meeting notice practices and the Old Goats’ policy regarding attendance. Although technically not a club, as the lunch group has no bylaws or membership dues, attendance is by invitation only. However, that policy came into question when a special meeting notice was released to the public and the media, prior to the luncheon, when it was learned that Emerson also planned to attend the event. Emerson later decided not to go and the notice was rescinded, but not before many expressed outrage that the notice had been released without any consultation of the Old Goats group. “It has me so God damn mad I can’t even see straight,” said a still-fuming Rose in an interview Monday. Commissioner Helen Price Johnson, chairwoman of the board, took the brunt of the blame during the luncheon as it was her signature on the notice. She and the rest of the board were blasted for being unfamiliar with the state’s Open Public Meeting Act and the rules regarding a quorum. But Johnson was quick to defend her Democratic colleague, saying the gen-

esis of the notice likely stemmed from a protective office staff and not with the board’s appointed chairwoman. Johnson also fielded complaints about inconsistencies in the acceptance of public comment during Monday and Wednesday meetings, to which the commissioner acknowledged recent problems. “You should be able to look at the agenda and know. … It should be very clear to citizens what to expect,” Johnson said. But despite some of the charged issues discussed, Johnson addressed what seemed to be a good-natured crowd, even if some said they still disagreed with a few of her positions. “I’m one of those conservatives that you referenced,” said John Merrill, an Oak Harbor resident. “I think I’m right, of course I know I am.” His comment earned healthy laughter from the crowd but not nearly as much as his next statement. “I know that unless you do it my way, it won’t be done correctly so you have a problem and I don’t,” Merrill said. “I can see you and I are going to have to discuss this problem from my perspective.” Rose agreed that the luncheon was a success. A group of voters had the opportunity to learn a little more about their new commissioner. “I don’t know if it’s the best meeting we’ve ever had but it was pretty damn good,” Rose said.

Wildcat wrestlers claim Lynden Tournament title By JIM WALLER Sports editor

Placing in the top five in every weight class it entered, the Oak Harbor High School wrestling team won the 16-team Lynden Tournament Saturday. Christian Bertram and Cody Fakkema won their weight classes to help Oak Harbor, ranked 20th in the latest Washington Wrestling Report 3A poll, score 207 team points. Ninth-ranked Glacier Peak, which is the only team to defeat Oak Harbor in a dual match this season, finished second (182) and Mount Baker, ranked ninth in 1A, finished third (154). Following Bertram (106 pounds) and Fakkema (132) on the podium were Josh Crebbin (160) and Jon Laningham (182) in second; Jahleel Vester (138), Mark Johnston (145), Jeremy Alonzo (195) and Kenny King (220) in third; and Jeremy Vester (126), Kekai Tarrant (152), C.J. Shavers (170) and Jackson Constant (285) in fifth. Coach Mike Crebbin said his team is still dealing with illness

but had an impressive weekend: “Everyone wrestled well and we are almost ready for the post season. The kids are experiencing the level of competition that if they make the smallest error, it can be the difference between a win or loss. Even the matches we lost, I was impressed with our improvement.” Jeremy Vester wrestled well in losing to Glacier Peak’s sixth-ranked John Kim 4-3. “If we remove a takedown that occurred in the last three seconds of the second round, we win that match,” coach Crebbin said. Sixth-ranked Josh Crebbin, who defeated the second-ranked wrestler earlier in the week, lost 3-1 to Meadowdale’s top-ranked Morgan Smith. Smith defeated Crebbin 9-4 earlier this year. Coach Crebbin said King “wrestled great” and “gained confidence and became more dominant.” He added, “Christian Bertram was another wrestler who really made the commitment to trust coaching and make the necessary changes in position and attack so he could perform at the next level.

Stanwood hoop teams use similar route to defeat ’Cats 4th-quarter surges save Spartans By JIM WALLER Sports editor

Stanwood High School has both the best boys and girls basketball teams in the Wesco 3A North, and maybe all of the Western Conference, and both received a bit of a scare from Oak Harbor Friday. Then came the fourth quarter. In the boys game at Stanwood, the Spartans (8-1, 11-5) won 65-39. The Stanwood girls (9-0, 14-2) won 58-32 in Oak Harbor. Both games followed the same pattern. In the boys, Stanwood led by two points after the first quarter, 15-13, and by five at halftime, 28-23. In the girls, Stanwood led by three points after the first quarter, 10-7, and by six at halftime, 26-20. The spread was 11 in both heading into the fourth quarter (45-34, boys; 41-30, girls), and the Oak Harbor teams were still within striking distance of an upset. The

The Wildcats suffered through their second-straight poor shooting night, hitting only 30 percent (15-for-50) to 40.7 percent for the Spartans (24-for-59). The Wildcats were particularly off from beyond the arc, making only 19 percent (4-for-21). Stanwood was 7-for-19 (37 percent) in threepoint shooting. Coach Mike Washington said, “We played well through three quarters. Their size wore us down in the fourth and they started making their shots.” The Wildcats (4-5, 8-8) host Wesco 3A South’s Shorecrest (3-6, 9-7) at 7:15 p.m. Friday.

Spartans made sure that didn’t happen. The Stanwood boys blitzed Oak Harbor 20-5 in the final period while the Spartan girls sprinted away from the Wildcats 17-2.

Stanwood size hurts OH boys The Spartan boys start a front line that stands 6-10, 6-7, 6-5 (Oak Harbor’s tallest player is 6-4) and each grabbed eight rebounds to help Stanwood dominate the boards 48-25, including 17-6 at the offensive end. The result was a 16-2 edge in secondchance points. The big boys weren’t the only rebounding demons; 5-9 Josh Thayer snared a team-high nine and scored 12 points. Drew Stang, 6-7, and Cannen Roberson, 6-5, each scored 14 points. Oak Harbor’s Chris Hailer had a game-high 15 points and JoJo Webster collected 13. That was about it for the Oak Harbor offense with no one else getting more than the three of Dayne Herron and Drew Washington. Gabe Groenig and Dyllan Harris scored two and Tony Stewart one.

In the girls game, Oak Harbor trailed 19-10 in the second quarter then went on a 9-0 run to even the score. The Spartans then went on their own run, 15-1, that spanned halftime and set the tone for the big final period. Oak Harbor hit only one of 11 shots in the fourth quarter, while the Spartans sank seven of 13, including five straight at one point. For the game, the Wildcats

made only 22 percent of their shots (11-for-49); the Spartans doubled that effort (44 percent, 24-for-54). Stanwood out rebounded Oak Harbor 37-27 and had fewer turnovers, 14-19. Rachel Swartz, 6-3, topped Stanwood with 14 points and seven rebounds. Annie Leete scored 17 for Oak Harbor, Ciera Wiser eight, Kelsey Rankin four, Deja Bunch two and Jalani Bobo one. Wiser pulled in nine rebounds, Rankin seven. Coach Trisha Wieber said, “We played well in the first half and then faded. Kelsey and Ciera never gave in. They battled hard against big posts all night. We took care of the ball much better last night, we just don’t have much depth so it’s challenging to put a whole game together.” It’s crunch time for the Wildcat girls (2-7, 5-11) who currently sit as the first team out in district qualifying. They go to Everett (3-6, 7-9) at 7:15 p.m. tonight and to Shorecrest (5-4, 8-8) Friday.

Historic family feud comes to life for Oak Harbor descendant By REBECCA OLSON

I

Staff reporter

t’s an age-old feud immortalized by television, a tale of evil and devastation, and an Oak Harbor woman is related to one of the families involved. Nancy Liekhus is a descendent of the McCoy family, the legendary family that feuded with the Hatfields in the late 1800s in Kentucky. Growing up in Pinsonfork, Ky., Liekhus said her family never spoke of the feud. It wasn’t until 1981 that she learned of her heritage and delved into its history. At her Oak Harbor home, Liekhus paged through a heap of yellowed newspapers commemorating the events of the feud. Old black and white family photos of the Hatfields and McCoys showed stoic men with guns and young boys holding pistols. “If you go back now, it’s just country people,” Liekhus said. “When we grew up, we never knew about wars or fights and stuff.” Liekhus is named after her great-grandmother, Nancy McCoy, who died before Liekhus was born. Nancy McCoy married Johnse Hatfield at a young age. Johnse was the youngest son of “Devil” Anse Hatfield, leader of the Hatfield family at the time. Later, Nancy McCoy divorced abusive Johnse Hatfield and married Frank Phillips, known as the “bane of the Hatfields,” Liekhus said. He was sent by the governor of Kentucky to find out why the Hatfields and McCoys were killing each other and died of a gunshot wound a few years later. Nancy McCoy also lost her father and a brother to the feud. “I think she’s pretty,” Liekhus said, pointing to a black and white portrait of her grandmother in a

McCoy, a Union veteran, was murdered. Through her research, Liekhus explored another key instigator of the feud. Due to the poverty of the area, families couldn’t feed their pigs over the winter so let them roam free in the woods. In the spring, they would collect the pigs, including sows that had given birth. Devil Anse Hatfield “happened to pick up (Randall McCoy’s) pig before he got it,” Liekhus explained. Randall McCoy was head of the McCoy family at the time. “It started with words, and then it started with violence,” Liekhus said. During the feud, three boys were tied to a tree and shot, there was one lynching and Randolph McCoy lost his family when the Hatfields burned his home. “They said he went crazy. But I don’t think he went crazy; he was trying to get over the shock of losing his family in that way,” Liekhus said. Eventually, the government had to step in and stop the feud “because it got so bad they thought it was going to be a civil war,” Liekhus said. Now, celebrations mark the events of the feud and the tragedy has been commercialized. Among other souvenirs, lamps sporting the facades of Devil Anse Hatfield and Randall McCoy are available for purchase. “I can’t stand them things! They’re so ugly!” Liekhus said, laughing.

Former Oak Harbor pastor sends his book to help shooting victims Pacing the floor during a sultry South Dakota summer night on the Rosebud Indian Reservation in 2007, former Oak Harbor pastor Bruce Leiter sensed that God wanted him to write a book in everyday language about his fictional friendship with agnostic Joe Smith. The idea grew as he discovered that many Christians fail to understand basic Christian beliefs and ignore reading the Bible. The resulting book, “Doubtbusters! God Is My Shrink!” merges a fictional friendship with the amiable Joe and skeptic Holly with information as Leiter shares with them his actual life journey and reasons for faith in God and for the Bible as God’s book. “I feel that the relationship between the real me and fictional Joe and Holly built on unconditional love is the most important part of my book along with my unusual reasons for believing in God and his victory over my depression, doubts, anger and selfish desires. Thus, the book touches our feeling, thinking and relationships,” Leiter said.

Autobiography has a touch of fiction “I consider the book nonfiction, though, because I as myself share God’s amazing victories in my real, ‘soapopera’ life and my unusual reasons for believing in God and taking his book seriously. It is also nonfiction because of the true tragic triumph toward the end that actually happened to my real, 81-year-old, unbelieving friend,” the 70-year-old Leiter explained. “However, it has a fictional setting in eastern Iowa with fictional characters except for me.” Knitted into the story with

Bruce Leiter, pastor of Oak Harbor Christian Reformed Church in the 1980s, stands with his wife Winnie at the Grand Canyon. Leiter published a book, “Doubtbusters! God Is My Shrink!” to share his story of facing the loss of his son, depression and how God helped. Joe and Holly are Leiter’s struggle with losing his son Keith to leukemia in 1972 and God’s victory over seven years of depression, the last two of which happened while he was living in Oak Harbor, as well as his struggles with doubt, migraines and selfish desires. “I had run away from God’s call into teaching and sales,” Leiter said. “But God used Keith’s death in 1972 to change my heart to seek his will for my vocation instead of mine.” After his home was on the housing market one day, Leiter sold it and moved with his wife and three children to Grand Rapids, Mich. where he attended Calvin Seminary. “I had no job, but God provided for us so I could attend school,” he said. “However, from 1979 through 1986, grief from Keith’s death

mccoys CONTINUED FROM A10 Devil Anse Hatfield’s burial site. During her childhood, the area was all hills and old coal mines, she said. Liekhus grew up in a threebedroom house with seven siblings. Her dad worked in the mines with other descendants of the Hatfields and McCoys. Despite living in a poor area, Liekhus said she was proud of her father, Ray Phillips, who supported the family well and was named coal miner of the year. “And the one thing I think I remember the most is we never had fear,” Liekhus said. They didn’t worry about locking doors or taking the keys out of the car. The community got together to can food and shuck corn. Her family raised pigs, “and our uncle

and other losses in my life caught up with me. I suffered debilitating depression that caused my health retirement. In 1986, God dramatically delivered me from that disease.”

Fulfilling God’s call After 27 years of service as a pastor, including at Oak Harbor Christian Reformed Church in the mid 1980s, Leiter moved to Hudsonville, Mich., where he retired in 2008 to fulfill God’s new call to write Christian books as his retirement ministry. He wrote “Doubtbusters! God Is My Shrink!” to help those who struggle with grief, depression, or doubt and who want their faith to grow. “I hope that the Oak Harbor community will understand the reality of

lived across the holler and he had cows. And everybody helped each other and got a share of the goodies, as we called them,” Liekhus said. “Especially us girls were afraid to date because we were related to everybody,” Liekhus laughed. Liekhus moved to Oak Harbor in the late 1970s and has made a few trips back to Kentucky over the years. “Going back there is like going back in time — the hairdos, the clothes,” Liekhus said, mentioning beehive hairdos and oversized earrings. However, the area has undergone commercialization since her childhood, with a number of new shops lining Tug River. But most importantly, every time she returns to Kentucky, the people make her feel at home. “How well everybody gets along, it’s amazing,” Liekhus said. “You don’t have to be related to be family.”

depression that I experienced the whole time we lived there (Oak Harbor) as a disease just as real as cancer. I also hope that they realize that people need psychological help to get

to the bottom of depression and that God can help them, not only through those means but also through an unusual kind of prayer as he did for me. God’s healing also started before we moved from Oak Harbor, for which I’ll also be very thankful,” Leiter said. “I also hope that the Oak Harbor community will discover many unusual reasons to believe in the God of the Bible,” he continued. “They can also come to understand that that same God is active in his people’s lives today. The book also models for Christians how God can help them build relationships with others.”

Spreading the word Aware that his book could help the people griev-

ing the tragic deaths of six adults and 20 children in Newtown, Conn., Leiter sent two copies of his book to their public library. “I hope that by reading my book, people’s doubts about God will decrease, that their faith in him will increase and that they will find God’s peace in their losses,” he said. “I hope that they will be convinced that the Bible’s description of Jesus’ life, death, resurrection and the rest of its history actually happened and that God is still at work today.” “Doubtbusters! God Is My Shrink!” is available through local libraries, bookstores and online through barnesandnoble. com, Amazon.com and doubtbusters.info, where people can put the discount code 20WhoL20 in the “special promotion” space for a 20 percent discount.

South Whidbey sweeps rivalry games over Coupeville By JIM WALLER Sports editor

South Whidbey High School claimed Island bragging rights in Cascade Conference basketball with wins over both the Coupeville girls and boys teams in Langley Friday. The Falcons whipped the Coupeville girls 49-25 and the boys 54-32.

SW girls control boards, game Dominating the boards helped the South Whidbey girls team dominate the game. The Falcons out rebounded Coupeville 15-2 in the first quarter to roll to a 14-4 lead. South Whidbey upped the rebounding margin to 24-9 in the second period, and as a result, pushed its lead on the scoreboard to 24-10 at halftime. Coupeville Coach David King said, “They really pounded the boards on the offensive end. They jumped out early and didn’t let up and we just couldn’t recover.” The Wolves corrected the rebounding problem in the third quarter, out boarding the Falcons 9-4, but developed another hitch, turnovers. Coupeville committed

only seven turnovers in the first half but booted the ball nine times in the third quarter and trailed 34-16 heading into the fourth period. King said his team picked up its defensive pressure and tried to push the ball in the fourth quarter, but “South Whidbey just had confidence and the momentum from outplaying us, and we were not able to mount a comeback.” King did see some positives among individuals. He said, “Bessie (Walstad) played a smart game and looked to provide a spark on offense. Jai’Lysa Hoskins had another strong performance on the defensive end along with many hustle plays. Bree (Messner) had a strong game from the point guard position with only three turnovers.” The Wolves need to pick up their play at the defensive end, King said, and everything else will fall into place. He added, “We aren’t playing defense like we did earlier in the season when we were successful. We need to get back to defense first. Once we do this our offense will follow.” The Wolves are working hard and having good practices, King said, but once they get behind in the games they “starting pressing and

trying to do to much.” Walstad led Coupeville with nine points, Amanda Fabrizi scored four, Hoskins three, Messner two, Lauren Escalle two, Haley Marx two, Hailey Hammer two and Madi Strasburg one. Hayley Newman had 17 points and 11 rebounds for the Falcons. South Whidbey (4-6, 9-8) moved a game ahead of Coupeville in the Cascade Conference standings (3-7, 5-11) with the win. It also avenged a 39-24 loss to the Wolves earlier this season. Coupeville plays first-place Archbishop Murphy (100, 13-2) in Everett at 7 p.m. Friday.

Falcon boys pull away in 4th The South Whidbey boys built a small first-half lead and then erupted in the fourth quarter to vanquish Coupeville. After taking a one-point first-quarter lead, 10-9, the Falcons outscored Coupeville 15-7 in the second to go up 25-16 halftime. The Wolves narrowed the margin to four, 25-21, on Nick Streubel’s three-point play midway through the third period, then South Whidbey slowly rebuilt its advantage,

time slowing the South Whidbey inside tandem of Nick French and Parker Collins, who finished with 19 and 14 points and helped the Falcons dominate the boards. Aaron Trumbull led Coupeville with 10 points but missed time because of foul trouble. Fouls were a problem for Coupeville, and the Falcons hit 14 of 21 free throws to only six of 13 for the Wolves. South Whidbey used fullcourt pressure to create turnovers and limit the offensive opportunities for the Wolves. Coupeville finished with 21 turnovers. Coach Anthony Smith said, “That’s good for us but still too many.” The Wolves shot 32 percent (11-for-34). Streubel finished with seven points, Ben Etzell six, Caleb Valko three and Morgan Payne two. Valko grabbed seven rebounds and Streubel six. Smith said South Whidbey hurt the Wolves with transition buckets and praised the Falcons for their intensity: “They play hard; they go for every loose ball.” After six consecutive road games, Coupeville (0-10, 1-15) returns home to face Archbishop Murphy (7-3, 9-4) at 7 p.m. Friday.

sports in brief Islanders split pair The GU17 Whidbey Islanders played to a pair of ties in soccer last weekend. The Islanders scored a late goal to tie Seattle United West G’96 1-1 in a Founders Cup game at Fort Nugent Park Saturday, and then tied 0-0 at Seattle United South G’95 Sunday. Saturday, Oak Harbor’s Vivien Valles fought her way into the goal box where the ball fell to Oak Harbor’s Rebecca Pabona, who drilled the goal into the top, back of the net for the equalizer. Sunday, LeVine said, “We controlled the game on their half in the second half but could not convert.” Oak Harbor’s Makenzie Perry recorded the shutout for the Islanders. The Islanders were shorthanded and played Saturday’s match with no substitutes and Sunday’s with only one.

Catz win 1 of 4 The Oak Harbor Catz eighthgrade girls basketball team won one of four games at the Chelsey Ebert Jam in Ferndale Jan. 19 and 20. The Catz opened the tournament with a 40-35 win over

Mount Vernon and were led by Julie Jansen with 16 points and Bryn Langrock with 12. Rashanna Graham, Kaytlyn Wallin and Kayla Wiley rounded out the scoring. Game two was “a brutal, physical contest,” coach Gary Brundidge said, with Monroe pulling out a 36-24 win. A short time later the Catz met a tall Meadowdale team and lost 66-28. Despite the loss, Brundidge called it an “enjoyable game” because it was a “pleasure to play a well-coached, sportsman-like team.” In the final game, the Catz faced a familiar foe, Prostock of Bellingham, and lost 35-28.
