Thomas faces 4 years for role in Douglas murder By JESSIE STENSLAND Staff reporter A former beauty queen pleaded guilty to a plea-bargained charge Thursday, less than a week before she was scheduled to go on trial for first-degree murder. Peggy Sue Thomas, 47, will likely face four years in prison when she’s sentenced Feb. 15 in Island County Superior Court. Thomas pleaded guilty to rendering criminal assistance in the first degree, with a special allegation that she or her accomplice was armed with a firearm during the commission of the crime. The firearms allegation adds an automatic three years to the sentence. Island County Prosecutor Greg Banks said in court that the trial posed “a substantial risk” for both the prosecution and defense. He said his case was based on circumstantial evidence and hearsay testimony. The judge had still not ruled on whether the prosecutor would be able to present crucial evidence to the jury, while a vital witness was recently admitted to a hospital. “I believe there are items of evidence that will probably never see the light of day that convinced me my case is just,” he said. Rather than risk an acquittal or a hung jury, Banks agreed to the plea bargain. He said the family of the victim, 32-year-old Russel Douglas, approved of the deal. Thomas appeared glum, but otherwise showed little emotion during the hearing. Her attorney, Craig Platt, chose not to speak about the plea bargain. Banks will recommend that the judge See Thomas, A17

Langley’s ex-mayor keeps a paying job Island Scanner By JUSTIN BURNETT Staff reporter

the town’s attorney — the law firm Weed, Graafstra, and Benson — and was told that the town was on solid legal ground. 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.” According to Conard, the town’s attorneys also suggested 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 a 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.

Larry Kwarsick has pled 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 earning $50 an hour. This past Tuesday, the Coupeville Town Council agreed to terminate Kwarsick’s existing contract as town planner, an action he requested last month, but then rehired 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 of weeks but could last a few months. Laying out all three proposals, the mayor made it clear that Kwarsick’s interim services will not be as a planner or as the town’s designated SEPA, State Environmental Protection Act, responsible official. Instead, the agreement is for Kwarsick to aid in the transition process mainly by doing administrative work. In December, Kwarsick pled guilty to the misdemeanor crime of altering the conditions of a permit for a family member’s home in 2011. At the time, he was also the city’s planning chief but the conditions were set by his predecessors, one of which was Town Councilman Larry Cort. 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, Jeff Arango, and ultimately a review by Island County Prosecutor Greg Banks. In a series of events since, Kwarsick was sentenced to two weeks in jail, a term he will serve in February, 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 Tuesday’s 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

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 they weren’t a perfect solution, but a short-term stopgap. Cort did request that the interim services agreement with Kwarsick include a sunset clause of 90 days, which was heartily endorsed by the rest of the council. All three proposals were decided in separate votes and each was unanimous.

The following items were selected from reports made to the Island County Sheriff’s Office.

Saturday, Jan. 12 12:32 a.m. — An arrest was made for driving with license suspended or revoked at Bayview and Howard roads. 10:31 a.m. — A Cherry Street resident reported receiving a text message regarding a person vandalizing a vehicle sitting outside her residence. 1:59 p.m. — A person was taken into custody for a possible DUI at Deer Lake Road and Highway 525.

LANGLEY Mayor’s position up for grabs Being the mayor of Langley is now up for application. Applicants need to have lived within city limits for at least one year and be a registered voter. The term is until the general election in November, unless there are enough would-be mayors to warrant a primary election in August. The mayor’s salary is $53,000, paid in monthly installments of $4,416.67 plus medical and dental insurance.

Langley’s top administrative position became vacant after Larry Kwarsick resigned earlier this month. His resignation came on the heels of a plea agreement with Island County Prosecutor Greg Banks for falsifying city documents while in public office. To apply, submit a letter of interest and resume to Debbie Mahler, finance director/city clerk, City of Langley, P.O. Box 366, Langley, WA 98260 or email by 5 p.m. Thursday, Feb. 7. Interviews are scheduled to begin before the city council meeting at 5:30 p.m. Tuesday, Feb. 19, at which time the city

‘Mo’s’ ordinance gets approval New rules aimed at satisfying Second Street residents’ complaints over Mo’s Pub were unanimously approved by the Langley City Council. Brief discussion preceded the vote, with Jeff Arango, Langley’s planning director, urging the council to approve the amendments. His department and the city’s Planning Advisory Board spent the past several months working on amendments to the commercial development adjacent to single family resident zoning. In December, the planning board and Arango made their final changes and sent the recommendations to the council. “The city spent several months working on this, we vetted it with all the appropriate stakeholder groups,” said Arango, adding that the rules were more predictable and fair. “Everyone gains by this.” Arango made the recommendation to limit lounges to 500 square

feet, but the planning board added language to allow for larger lounges in restaurants larger than 2,500 square feet. “Most places won’t be above 2,500 square feet, but if it was that would allow for some flexibility,” Arango said. Live, amplified music will be allowed six times per year. Any live, amplified music in city limits has to receive a permit authorized by the city council. Five of those times are limited to 11 p.m., the sixth is reserved for New Year’s Eve, which may last until 1 a.m. “I don’t see how that’s excessive,” said Councilman Bruce Allen. The vote was approved 5-0 on Jan. 22.

though clearly fraudulent, could easily be mistaken for legitimate bills when receiving payment or distributing change, said Town Marshal Lance Davenport in an email to businesses. Anyone who suspects handling a counterfeit bill should call 911 immediately to report the transaction to police, Davenport said. “If possible, and safe to do so, please try to keep the person who passed the bill on location until we respond. In the vast majority of cases, the person passing the bill is an unwitting victim as well, and it may help law enforcement to locate the source.”

STATE State eyes new octopus rules The Washington Department of Fish and Wildlife is seeking nominations through Feb. 15 for membership on an advisory group being formed in response to the legal harvest of a giant Pacific octopus in Seattle last October. Up to 12 qualified

individuals will be chosen to serve on the ad hoc group and develop recommendations for protecting giant Pacific octopus in Puget Sound. The group will meet periodically through the end of August. Craig Burley, WDFW fish program manager, said the commission’s examination was prompted by the controversy stirred by the legal harvest of a giant Pacific octopus off Seacrest Park in Seattle last October. Under current rules, divers may legally harvest one giant Pacific octopus per day in those and most other waters of Puget Sound. Burley said the advisory group will be asked to develop recommendations within a range of options, among them closing all of Puget Sound to the recreational harvest of giant Pacific octopuses, closing just popular dive sites to octopus harvesting, or even closing dive sites in Puget Sound to the recreational harvest of any species, not just octopuses. Nominations must be received by Feb. 15 and sent to Craig.Burley@dfw. For more information, call Burley at 360902-2784.

In our opinion

The HUB that refused to die The end of government funding does not mean death to a worthy organization. At least not to supporters of The HUB in Langley, which for more than 20 years has been a popular youth hangout in space donated by the United Methodist Church. The HUB temporarily closed in 2011 when government funding was withdrawn and salaried leaders had to look for work elsewhere. But it wasn’t down for long. A group of adults, among them Frankie Petitclerc, Erick Westphal, Langley Councilman Bruce Allen and Police Chief Randy Heston, expressed their determination that The HUB would reopen, government funding or not. What followed was a fundraising frenzy with raffles, dinners and dollars donated by individuals, businesses and other community organizations. By April 2012 the kids’ club was ready to open two days a week after school, and it re-opened after summer break. The next goal was to be open more days, with the target of four days per week set for February 2013. A successful salmon dinner cooked up last Saturday by Hank Hall, HUB executive director, drew a crowd of 150 and netted $2,000 thanks to a host of volunteer workers, including kids who frequent The HUB. Now they’re right on track to be open four days a week as scheduled. The ultimate goal is to be open every day after school beginning next school year. The continuing fundraising that will be required is daunting, an estimated $36,000 annually. But HUB organizers have already shown that they’re not deterred by a little thing like lack of funds. The HUB will have a continuing need for community support, but everyone agrees that there should be a place for adolescents to gather after school rather than going home to an empty house or a chair in front of the TV set. At The HUB, the teens can socialize, play a variety of games from electronic to ping pong, air hockey and pool, grab some good grub, catch up on homework and avail themselves of other youth services promoted at the HUB. The HUB was always a great South Whidbey success story, but it’s been even more impressive in the way it rose from the dead after federal and state dollars dried up.

Curbside recycling response: Outrage To the editor: Re: Curbside editorial (The Record, Dec. 29). I wouldn’t have called Angie Homola an environmentalist. Issues: (1) The presentation made to the commissioners was so lacking in hard numbers it wouldn’t have secured a high-interest loan at a used car lot. (2) How many route miles/gallons of fuel burned to collect how many tons of material? A real environmentalist would have learned the answer to that question before making the proposal. (3) Do the people who will be affected by the proposal want it?

nance” means “we just passed a law that forces you to pay for a service you may not want in order to keep one you do want.” The response we are hearing (60 to 90 customers per day at Freeland alone) is just plain outrage that this thing was rammed through using someone who clearly did not represent the majority of her district and that no realistic attempt was made to bring the subscribers into the discussion. The real beauty of this deal is that the law does not require anyone to notify these customers until 45 days before they get their first bill (and a cart two to three times the size of their garbage can), which will be $10 to $11 a month after Island Disposal has started spending time and money in earnest.

Laughing aloud at the pizzeria To the editor: I laughed my head off at Jim Larsen’s editorial “A long wait for first baby” in the Jan. 16 Record. The other diners in the pizzeria must have thought I was nuts. But no, I was only appreciating Whidbey Island’s own Mark Twain (of course Jim’s no slouch as a newsman either). I’m guessing the Record got a few complaints about the “indelicacy” of Jim’s references to, well, the process that makes babies.

Edith Buck, others, wrote first account To the editor: The first historical and factual account about the acquisition and development of the South Whidbey Community Center was written by Edith Buck with Dorothy Gray, Bettie Hall and Linda Colley. They have each passed away, but are remembered by those that knew them as women of impeccable character. They titled their story “The Birth of a Vision” and wrote it at my request and from my notes and collection of documents and newspaper articles. It was intended to be, and is, a detailed account of how the property was acquired and the development process to the date of their story’s publication. The first of the ladies that I contacted to write the story of the park was my

former second-grade teacher, Edith Buck. Edith had retired and was writing children’s books. She had been a Sunday school teacher for about 30 years and raised her three daughters on her own after her husband died. Edith Buck is remembered as a wise and wonderful lady by Norma Metcalf, Jim and Iladeene Leierer, Marion Henny, Louise Scriven, Anna Primavera and many others whose children were trusted to her during their experience in her classroom. Please call those named or any others that were raising children while Edith was teaching. You may discover for yourself, if you did not know Edith, what her great qualities were. She and the other three ladies felt their work documenting the history of the park was an important task that would serve a valuable purpose. The book that I wrote with Dr. James Talbot, titled, “The Origin and Early History of the South Whidbey Community Center,” is a documentary and does not cover the fact that Providence is

Itaya outlasts six-period match Wrestlers upset Archbishop Murphy

By BEN WATANABE Staff reporter

By BEN WATANABE Staff reporter EVERETT — The “Rocky” theme song should have played during the South Whidbey-Archbishop Murphy wrestling match Thursday. Six of South Whidbey’s matches went at least three periods, five of which the Falcons won for a 39-22 team victory. And none was more grueling or lengthy as the triple overtime 160pound bout, which set the gut-it-out, all-hustle attitude for the Falcons. “By the end of the third period, it was awful,” said Falcon junior James Itaya. “I didn’t know if I could make it to overtime.” Itaya scored a 1-point escape in the final seconds of the third period that forced an extra round. In the minute-long fourth period, Itaya and his Wildcat opponent, Andrew Shaffer, were locked up and neither scored, forcing a 30-second fifth period. Shaffer began the period in the down position and escaped for a 1-point lead, 11-10. Itaya recovered and slammed Shaffer for a 2-point takedown - and a 12-11 lead. But in the final two seconds, Shaffer was awarded an escape, which forced another 30-second period. “That’s a rookie mistake,” said Falcon head coach Jim Thompson. “He got a little tired, which was a surprise because we’re more conditioned than the other teams.” Itaya began the final period down and quickly scored an illegal hold with 11 seconds remaining. Hoping for a takedown, Shaffer elected to resume wrestling in the neutral position, which awarded Itaya another point and a 14-12 lead that he kept as the buzzer sounded.

Falcon junior James Itaya brings down Wildcat Andrew Shaffer in the 160pound. The two battled through three extra periods. “I just weathered the storm,” Itaya said. It was Itaya’s first victory against a Cascade Conference opponent this year. And the match Thursday was his last chance as South Whidbey wrapped its conference season. “I really wanted to win this one and knew if I lost it, I wouldn’t be happy with myself,” he said. “I knew if I lost, I wouldn’t be the same.” Itaya credited his coaches for the late season turnaround. “I have great coaching and great captains. Thompson, (Paul) Newman, Jake (Leonard) and Patrick (Monell) have all helped me this year.” Archbishop Murphy won only four matches on its senior night. The Wildcats conquered the 126, 132, 195

and heavyweight bouts. Senior Colin Farrell, ranked 13th among 2A wrestlers, cruised against Falcon sophomore Josh McElhinny in the 126. The only disputed match was the 132, in which Falcon junior Keegan Warwick was pinned in 2:35. But Warwick had the match in hand in the first period. He scored a quick takedown, but allowed Wildcat senior Alex Saavedra to escape, then spin on top for a takedown. Warwick fought out of the grip and scored a reversal, then rolled Saavedra onto his shoulders before the buzzer bailed the Wildcat out of a sure pin. “I thought the ref was slow to get down and call the pin,” Thompson said.

LANGLEY — Bleeding from her lips, Ellie Greene needed a minute before she could speak after her South Whidbey Falcons defeated the Lakewood Cougars, 50-46. In a physical game Tuesday that unusually was also a three-point shootout, South Whidbey survived horrid perimeter play and a barrage of three pointers by Lakewood. The Falcons made only one three-point field goal, while the Cougars sank 5-of-20. The game's flow was similar to the previous meeting when South Whidbey led by as much as 15, only to have it dwindle to single digits in the final minutes before free throws cushioned the lead. The Cougars (3-8 Cascade Conference; 7-10 overall) challenged the Falcons (5-6 Cascade Conference; 10-8 overall) in the third quarter. Lakewood whittled down a four-point lead with three pointer, a putback, an inbounds layup and a backdoor layup. Within five possessions, Lakewood had cut South Whidbey's lead to 35-34. Falcon senior Ellie Green took over as the closer, scoring seven of her game-high 14 points in the fourth quarter. Greene sank 5-of-6 free throws in the final quarter and hit a jump shot on an inbounds play.

Annalies Schuster tries to shoot over freshman Cougar forward Reille Jones on Tuesday. South Whidbey's offense was out of sorts, despite attempting 68 shots. The Falcons converted only 16 of those field goals, and were a paltry 1-of-10 behind the arc. Free throws bailed out the Falcons, who had 12 more trips to the line than the Cougars. Greene made 8-of10 free throws. Falcon senior Hayley Newman was a perfect 4-of-4 at the line and made South Whidbey’s only three pointer, while fellow co-captain Annalies Schuster struggled, converting 3-of-9.

OBITUARY Leta Pauline Hunt

Leta Pauline Hunt, born September 9,1926 to Ludwig and Lorena Metzger of Seattle, Washington, quietly passed away on October 11, 2012. Leta grew up in the Ravenna area of Seattle with her dad, Ludwig Metzger, Medicinal Gardener and Scientific Nurser yman plus Head Gardener at the University of Washington (1922-1950), her mother, her grandmother, and her only sister Thelma. Leta and her family spent many days learning about native medicinal plants from members of the Tulalip Tribe, and were often included in many of the tribe’s ceremonies and celebrations. As a tow-headed child, Leta actually sat on the log that Chief Shelton carved into a Totem Pole for the grounds of the State Capitol in Olympia. Leta lived a vibrant life as a young adult. She graduated from Roosevelt High School in Seattle and continued her education at Pacific Lutheran University where she toured with the Choir of the West and the University Symphony Orchestra, while studying art and music, earning her Bachelor’s in 1948. While working on a Master degree at the University of Washington, she met and married her husband of 26 years, Herbert Hunt, Sr. Leta and Herb began their married life in Seattle raising their family of four children. Leta worked at Boeing and led a busy family and community life, serving at Bethlehem Lutheran Church as secretary, sunday school & vacation bible school teacher & superintendent, PTA president, Cub Scouts & Y-Teen leader, teaching square dancing with her husband; and contributing her artistic talents to design logos, brochures or any other needs for every organization she supported. Eventually, Leta and Herb moved their family to Whidbey Island in 1964 to start a different chapter in their lives. Leta became a well-known and beloved part of the


Leta Pauline Hunt

Whidbey Island community. She taught 11 years in the local school district as the high school art teacher and a few years as a 4th grade teacher. She touched the lives of many students in her work, giving them confidence in their abilities as artists and learners. Leta was also active in the community at-large donating her artistic talents to design the original Island County Fair logo, active in the Trinity Lutheran Church, especially providing art experiences during many summers of VBS, leader in Soroptomists, contributor to Habitat for Humanity and many other organizations. Over the years, Leta opened her home and offered guidance to numerous teens who became part of her family when they needed support. Leta and Herb separated and Leta went in a new direction in her life, returning to Pacific Lutheran University to complete a Masters’ Degree in Guidance and Counseling at the age of 61! She began a private counseling practice and faithfully served many clients until permanently retiring. In 2005, Leta moved to Sammamish, Washington with her daughter Kim and son-in-law Ralph and then to the Spiritwood assisted living facility. At Spiritwood, she taught art lessons to the residents with the assistance of her grandson, Addison, and served two terms as the Residents’ Council President, writing the council charter and providing a needed voice for the residents in decisionmaking at Spiritwood. Leta returned to Whidbey again, in 2010, living with her son Traynor and daughterin-law Petite in Coupeville,

Washington. Leta re-engaged in the community, becoming active in the Red Hat Society, supporting Ryan’s House, and visiting with the new neighbors she met as she walked on her daily exercise program. On her numerous walks, Leta took time to discover beauty in every stone she collected along the way. She enjoyed going to the Whidbey Island Kite Festival or Ebey’s and loved running to catch a glorious sunset at whichever beach had the best view! Just passing her 86th birthday, Leta lived a long and fulfilled life. She is fondly remembered and loved by her surviving children and spouses, Lorena (Bob) Higbee, Herb Hunt, Jr., Traynor (Petite) Hunt, Kimberly (Ralph) Klinke, as well as the families of her nine grandchildren (Nicole, Tianna, Shaylyn, Breanne, Cameron, Addison, Pierce, Ned and Will) and 4 greatgrandchildren (Jenna, Emma, Karmell, Okes + one on the way). Leta was preceded in death by her infant daughter, Leslie, her sister and her parents. Leta contributed to the lives of everyone she touched. The family requests donations in her memory be sent to the Medicinal Herb Garden Gift Fund of the UW Foundation. Leta was very proud of her Father’s work at the University of Washington, especially his establishment of the Medicinal Garden and continued to support its work throughout her life. A celebration of Leta’s life will take place on Sunday, January 27, 2013, 2:00 - 4:00 at the Freeland Hall. Please join us!

Between periods, Warwick medical time for his heart murmur and winced as he gasped for air and struggled to catch his breath. “He’s really inspiring,” Thompson said. Warwick started the second period down and quickly scored an escape point. But Saavedra was able to wrap up Warwick for a huge throw to the mat and secured the pin. The two upper weight Wildcat wins were by Foster Wade, 2A’s sixth-ranked 195 wrestler, and Dakota Creed, ranked 10th in the heavyweight. “They’re better wrestlers — no big surprise there,” Thompson said. South Whidbey’s other winners included Steven Smith, who accepted a forfeit in the 113. Falcon sophomore Will Holbert won a three-period battle in the 120, defeating Andrew Cary. Andy Madsen won the 138 by pinning Sean Callaghan in 1:07. Tyler Russell returned to the varsity lineup and dropped Koa Wright in the 145. Russell came out as the aggressor, shooting early for a takedown and scoring a pair of reversals and three-point near falls. Falcon seniors Jake Leonard and Patrick Monell ended their conference careers with victories. Leonard won the 170 narrowly against Taylor Gipson in three periods, 9-7. Monell, however, made quick work in the 220 by pinning Evi Jeong

Several solutions considered for Cranberry Lake poop problem Deception Pass struggles with goose population By NATHAN WHALEN Staff reporter 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 at the island’s most popular park 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, parek manager, highlighted several things staff will do to discourage the honkers from congregating near the popular swimming hole. He said park staff members will be trying out some scare techniques, such as placing

coyote cutouts throughout the troubled area. In addition, they’ll 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.” 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 because of the closure. Cranberry Lake isn’t the only area where 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 continue 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 a 100 milliliter bottle with water from the swim area. The lab found the bottle contained 770 E. coli colonies, while the state standard is 126. Contact with fecal contaminated bacteria can result in gastroenteritis, skin rashes, upper respiratory infections and other illnesses. The risk is greatest for young children, the elderly or anyone with a compromised immune system. Wood said staff will continue to monitor water condition at three areas around Cranberry Lake, the dock, boat launch and the beach on the western side. A smaller goose problem on Honeymoon Lake near Freeland has been addressed twice. Once, a state hunter killed the geese. Another hunter was scheduled for this year, but anonymous goose lovers snatched the five birds before they could be killed.

The Rev. William M. Burnett

The Rev. William M. Burnett

Our friend, Bill Burnett, born May 5, 1936, died Saturday morning, Jan. 19, 2013, in Tukwila, Wash., from complications of Alzheimer’s Disease. He was 76 years old, an Episcopal priest for 50 years, and a gentle generous soul, beloved of many. He was “Father Burnett” to some, “Father Bill” to many, and “FB” to all of us who were kids when we met him. He is greatly loved and sorely missed. Bill was a third generation native Washingtonian, the only child of Melbourne Burnett and Marian C. Hutcheson. Born in Seattle, he graduated Magnolia Grade School, Queen Anne High School, The University of Washington, B.A. Sociology (Phi Kappa Sigma), and Church Divinity School of the Pacific, M.Div.; ordered priest 1962, serving at his home parish, Ascension, Magnolia, and in 1965 moving to serve at St. John’s, Kirkland and mission churches in Juanita and Redmond. It was there that he met his long-time friend, R. James Enslow. In 1968, he served briefly at St. Matthew’s Episcopal church in San Mateo, Calif., where he was adopted (figuratively, not literally) by the McKenna family. Bill returned to

Washington state in 1969 to become Vicar at St. Augustine’s-in-the-Woods, a mission church in Freeland on Whidbey Island. With his friend Brian, he was met in the old Payless parking lot by a young mother named Judy, who escorted them to the little A-framed church. It was not his first time on Whidbey. He recalled visits as a child to a little cabin on Brown’s Point (now Sandy Point). He was honored, as an adult, to be interviewed for a history of Cama Beach on Camano Island, of which he had many fond memories, having visited with his parents for a week every summer. He built his home on Saratoga Passage with a view of Cama Beach, which he was wont to point out. In the same view stands a tall craggy tree which frequently hosted eagles in its upper branches and provided much delight. Bill was a cat fancier and not long without one or two. He faithfully fed birds and squirrels. He served St. Augustine’s until his retirement from parish ministry in 1998, having elevated the mission to parish status and spearheading the creation of a new spacious sanctuary filled with the joyous sound of an authentic hand-built pipe organ, which he made happen because he loved pipe organ music. Upon retirement he was named Rector Emeritus, which greatly pleased him. Fr. Bill was founding pastor of the South Whidbey Church Council and mentor to new clergy to the area. His diocesan level service included stints on the Diocesan Council, the Standing Committee, and with the Ecumenical/ Interfaith Office. He was “The Venerable” when he was the Archdeacon for Northwest Washington. In the community, Bill collaborated with many leaders to create the Help House (crisis line and social supports), was a board member of Good Cheer, the hospital board (even before Whidbey

General was built), the Whidbey Aids Support Fund, Mental Health, and the Island County Aids Task Force. He was the “angel” behind the Soup Coop in Langley in the 1970s, providing ongoing financing. Bill loved to travel, meet new people, and experience new cultures. He ventured throughout Europe, both eastern and western, starting in the early 1960s. He rode the Trans-Siberian Railroad, traveled on The Orient Express, explored the Greek isles, traversed New Zealand north to south, and visited Hawaii frequently, where he helped build “Green Mansions,” a small hillside cabin on the lush east end of another island paradise, Moloka’i. Bill worked on an interfaith peace mission to Israel and Palestine and visited Russia many times, working with the St. Petersburg --Seattle sister-churches program, which went on to found the first children’s hospice program in St. Petersburg. Bill is survived by his family, R James and Brian, and by many church and community members who knew and loved him. Bill Burnett touched people in this community at many levels. He was a nurturing teacher, a compassionate minister, and a devoted “friend with a capital ‘F’”, as he would say. He may not be a saint yet, but, with his coming and going, leaving us with his gifts of kindness, wisdom, and support, he was likely an Angel. A Requiem Eucharist will be celebrated on Wednesday, Jan. 30, at 2 p.m. at St. Augustine’s, 5217 Honeymoon Bay Road, Freeland, (360) 331-4887. In lieu of flowers, contributions may be made to: The St. Augustine’s Endowment Fund, P.O. Box 11, Freeland, WA 98249; the Whidbey AIDS Support Fund, P.O.

Volunteers help improve quality of life of abused horse 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 two horses into protective custody last summer, but found herself between a rock and a hard place.

Barnes said he has a lot of potential and would make a good trail horse for an experienced 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.

Taryn, who rides in international competitions, has a great deal of experience with horses and is very patient with them. Her mother said 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

Dozens take in the Martin Luther King Jr. program at St. Augustine’s Episcopal Church in Freeland. Karl Olsen leads the gathering in song.

Freeland’s St. Augustine’s-in-the-Woods Episcopal Church honors Martin Luther King Jr. Whidbey Island Martin Luther King, “Blessed are the Peace Makers” community event, held Monday at St. Augustine’s-in-the-Woods Episcopal Church in Freeland attracted a crowd. An estimated 185 people attended the service, which featured the music of Karl Olsen accompanied by Danny Ward on sax and the ICTHUS youth singers. The ICTHUS singers are an ecumenical group with singers from Trinity Lutheran, St. Augustine’s Episcopal and Langley United Methodist. In addition to singing, seven teenage youths were readers in the interactive dialog. The interactive dialog connected the destruction of the original Jim Crow in the 1960’s with the rise of a New Jim Crow or mass incarceration of African American and Latino males. Judge Dennis Yule gave a personal testimony how the law enforcement and judicial system operated to allow a disproportionate incarceration of people of color. It was something that disturbed him personally. Judge Yule gave personal examples of bias against people of color in the current law enforcement and legal system. The research of Michelle Alexander, author of the “New Jim Crow” was used as a basis for the interactive dialog.

‘Mr. Green’ kicks off OutCast’s season OutCast Productions presents its first show of the 2013 theater season “Visiting Mr. Green” by Jeff Baron at the Black Box Theater at the Whidbey Island Fairgrounds in Langley. The play opens at 7:30 p.m. Friday, Feb. 1 and runs for three weekends through Saturday, Feb. 16. “Visiting Mr. Green” follows the story of Mr. Green, an 86-year-old widower, who is almost hit by a car driven by young corporate executive Ross Gardiner. Found guilty of reckless driving, Ross is ordered to spend the following six months making weekly visits to Mr. Green. What begins as a comedic situation of two guys who resent being in the same room together, gracefully develops into an interesting and poignant drama, as the young man and elderly gent each reveal intimate family secrets and painful memories to each other and become friends, offering each other a bond that heals what ails them. “Visiting Mr. Green” features Ed Cornachio and David Mayer and is directed by K. Sandy O’Brien. Friday and Saturday performances are at 7:30 p.m. and two Sunday matinees are at 2 p.m.

It’s easy being green in fashion and food WHIDBEY RECIPES

Margaret Walton

And Crock-Pots are back again It’s January of a new year, and there’s no escaping the inevitable blather about what’s “in or out for 2013,” or “what’s hot, what’s not for the new year.” Color, for example. Every year, fashionistas insist there will be a new, hot color, and every clothing maker from St. Laurent to Banana Republic

will almost certainly come up with clothes in various shades of that color. You can only hope it’s a color you look good wearing. This year, the hot color for 2013 is green, not an easy color for many to wear. But for we who live surrounded by green in all its variations, how can we not love the fashion color of 2013. Speaking of green, the hot vegetable for 2013 is also green; kale tops the list of preferred green leafy veggies this year. Loaded with all the current healthy components you could possibly wish for, and easy to incorporate into salads. The Cheesecake Factory (have you ever gone there for a salad?), is already advertising their green salad with kale. Perhaps it makes you feel less guilty when you follow the kale salad with that slab of cheesecake. Regular readers know of my fondness (addiction to) of Greek yogurt. Well, it came as no surprise to learn that it’s one of the hottest food

trends for 2013. When I first began consuming Greek yogurt a few years ago, I often couldn’t find it at some food stores, and when I did, only one brand and perhaps a half dozen containers of that. Now it’s everywhere, and the food pundits say that there will be Greek yogurt dips, sauces, smoothies, dressings and even cheesecakes available in the months to come. When I find a Greek yogurt cheesecake recipe, you’ll be the first to know. There are many others on the “what’s new, what’s hot for 2013” list, but I have to mention another of the items I found amusing and interesting, namely, Crock-Pots. Yes, I said Crock-Pots, now better known as “slow cookers,” and yes, what goes ‘round comes ‘round. I don’t know what I’d have done without my Crock-Pot back in the ’60s and into the early ’70s, when I was a working mother trying to feed a family at the end of the work-

ing day. If I got up early, put ingredients into the Crock-Pot and set it on low while I was getting breakfast on, before we all went off to school/ work, the primary part of our dinner would be ready when I got home. Fix a salad and/ or a quick steamed vegetable and there it was, dinner on in less than half an hour. Thanks, Crock-Pots. I still have my original Crock-Pot, as well as another smaller version, better for only two. I’ve used them both frequently over the years, and never considered getting rid of them. And now, here I am, owner of two of the hottest “new” kitchen must-haves for 2013, a “slow cooker.” You want proof? Two of my granddaughters, each of whom flew the nest and moved into her own apartment during this past year, asked for a “slow cooker” for Christmas. How does that old song go? “Everything old is new again.” Hope you didn’t get

The U.S. Navy invites you to comment on the Engineering Evaluation/ Cost Analysis for Former Aviation Fleet Gunnery School Sites At Whidbey Island Naval Air Station, Oak Harbor, Washington The U.S. Navy prepared an Engineering Evaluation/ Cost Analysis (EE/CA) to evaluate potential alternatives for dealing with munitions-related chemical contaminants in surface soil at two former gun ranges at Naval Air Station (NAS) Whidbey Island, Oak Harbor, Washington. The former gun ranges, referred to as Machine Gun Ranges (MGRs) B and C and the Mobile Turret Tower Range (MTTR), are part of the former Aviation Fleet Gunnery School. The EE/CA discusses risks posed by the sites, evaluates cleanup alternatives, and identifies a recommended alternative. The risk evaluation in the EE/CA was based upon a previous preliminary assessment and a site investigation conducted at the two sites. The Navy is the lead agency and invites you to comment on all alternatives considered in the EE/ CA. The following alternatives were evaluated: • No Action • Land Use Controls (Administrative Controls) – Administrative controls imposed to limit Navy development of the sites to “non-residential” land uses • Land Use Controls (Administrative and Physical Controls) – Administrative controls imposed to limit Navy development of the sites to “non-residential” land uses and install physical barriers such as fences, gates, and signs to limit access to portions of the sites • Soil Removal – Clearing, grubbing, and removal of the uppermost 2 feet of soil where practicable in areas where soil exceeding the applicable regulatory cleanup level was identified in the previous site investigation Based on available information, the Navy’s recommended alternative is Land Use Controls (Administrative Controls) to limit Navy development of both sites to non-residential land uses, which would allow recreational, industrial, commercial, office, and educational uses. Prohibited land uses would include residential housing, elementary and secondary schools, child-care facilities, and playgrounds. The Navy will choose the final alternative after considering public comments and may select any one of the alternatives.

Public Comment Period is January 28 through February 27, 2013. The EE/CA will be available at the reference desk of the following public libraries during this period: Oak Harbor Library 360-675-5115 1000 SE Regatta Drive Oak Harbor, WA 98277 Mon - Thurs: 9 AM - 8 PM Friday: 9 AM - 5 PM Saturday: 10 AM - 5 PM Sunday: 1 PM - 5 PM Coupeville Library 360-678-4911 788 NW Alexander Street Coupeville, WA 98239 Mon & Wed: 10 AM - 8 PM Tues & Thurs - Sat: 10 AM - 5 PM Sunday: Closed Anacortes Public Library (360) 293-1910 1220 10th Street Anacortes, WA 98221 Mon: 10 AM - 7 PM Tues – Fri: 11 AM - 7 PM Sat. & Sun: Noon - 5 PM The EE/CA is also available online: mil/portal/page/portal/navfac/navfac_ww_pp/navfac_efanw_pp/ tab33522:tab34368 Written comments must be postmarked by February 27, 2013. The Navy will extend the public comment period at least 15 additional days or schedule a public meeting to discuss the EE/ CA upon timely receipt of a request. You may request an extension of the comment period or a public meeting prior to February 27, 2013. After the public comment period ends, the Navy will prepare a written response to all significant comments, and comment responses will be included in the Administrative Record file. The Navy will consider public comments in the final selection of an alternative and will document the selected alternative in an Action Memorandum.

rid of your old-but-new-again slow cooker. RECIPES: If you say “Crock-Pot” to people over 50 today, they’ll almost always say “stews, Beef Burgundy, chili, baked beans, etc. etc., but there are so many things beyond that possible with a slow cooker, which is what I told my granddaughters when I sent them each one, along with some recipes. Everything from appetizers to dessert is possible in your slow cooker. Let’s begin with a family pleaser main dish, one my granddaughters can cut in half for their best use, and they’ll love it because it’s a spaghetti-style dish.

SLOW & EASY ITALIAN CHICKEN 4 boneless skinless chicken breasts 8 oz. mushrooms, sliced 1 green bell pepper, chopped 1 zucchini (small to med.), chopped 1 onion, chopped 1 jar (26 oz.) pasta sauce of choice Hot cooked linguini or spaghetti Combine all ingredients except pasta in the slow cooker; cover and cook on low for 6-8 hrs. Cook pasta in boiling water according to package directions. Serve chicken over pasta, with a tossed green salad. Serves 4. But, dessert from a slow cooker? This one is for chocolate lovers; not for dessert purists, but remember, we’re talking about a beautiful dessert with little effort. Remember when pudding cakes were all the rage? Well, they’re back for 2013.

CHOCOLATE HAZELNUT PUDDING CAKE 1 box golden yellow cake mix 1 cup water 4 eggs ½ cup sour cream ½ cup vegetable oil

1 cup semisweet dark chocolate mini-morsels ½ cup chopped hazelnuts Whipped cream or ice cream, for topping Coat the slow cooker with nonstick cooking spray. Combine cake mix, water, eggs, sour cream and oil until smooth. Pour into slow cooker, cover, and cook on high for 2 hrs. or until batter is nearly set. Sprinkle on chocolate morsels and hazelnuts, cover and cook 30 min. longer, or until a toothpick inserted into the center comes out clean or cake begins to pull away from side of cooker. Spoon out while warm and top with whipped cream or ice cream (or let stand until cool then slice and top.) Can you eat anywhere these days without hearing about or seeing on the menu “pulled pork?” Well, there’s nothing easier than using your slow cooker to make that pulled pork for the slider, sandwich, tortilla wrap, or whatever else you plan to do with it.

BARBECUED PULLED PORK 1 pork shoulder roast (2-3 lbs.) 1 bottle (14 oz.) of your preferred barbecue sauce 1 T. fresh lemon juice 1 t. packed brown sugar 1 med. onion, chopped Hamburger buns, rolls, tortillas, your choice of “container” for the pork Place roast in slow cooker. Cover; cook on low 10-12 hrs, or on high for 5-6 hrs. Remove roast from cooker; discard cooking liquid. Shred pork with two forks and return to slow cooker. Add barbecue sauce, lemon juice, brown sugar and onion. Cover and cook on low 2 hrs., or on high 1 hr. Serve shredded pork on buns, rolls, tortillas, whatever you’d like to wrap it in. Add red onion coleslaw as a garnish or serve on the side, along with small dill pickles, if desired. Serves 8.

Douglas to the remote area with the promise of a gift, according to court documents. Instead, Huden shot him in the head. Huden was convicted of first-degree murder following a trial last summer and sentenced to 80 years in prison. Yet his motive for the crime and connection to Douglas remained rather nebulous. Huden and Thomas were lovers; Thomas worked with Douglas’ wife, Brenna Douglas, at a Langley beauty salon. When asked if Thomas’ plea agreement involved her cooperation in a case against Brenna Douglas, Banks refused to comment. Banks argued at trial that Huden believed Russel Douglas was abusive to his children and Huden murdered him as revenge for his own abuse as a child at the hands of his stepfather. Huden allegedly told his wife and his friend, Bill Hill, about Thomas’ involvement in the murder. Yet Huden refused to implicate her in court, even when presented with a plea bargain that would have reduced his sentence. Members of the victim’s family begged Huden in during his sentence hearing to explain the motive, but he remained silent.

Jeff Arango, Langley’s planning director, addresses the city council regarding a variance for taller lights for the new Langley Marina.


called the cleat, “the tie-up thing.” City council members were concerned that the timing may interfere with the port’s work on the marina this spring and summer.

Bayview market organizes Vendor applications for the 2013 Bayview Farmers Market are now available online at www.bayview The opening bell for the island’s biggest farmers market will ring at 10 a.m. Saturday, April 27. Markets run every Saturday through the end of October. Market Manager Sharon Warwick says new vendors are welcomed in all categories with a special welcome to farmers and persons interested in selling hot foods. Last year the markets featured a weekly average of 60 vendors selling produce, plant starts, baked goods, hot foods, and artisan crafts. Market officers will be meeting in early February to develop an agenda and budget for the group’s annual meeting at 7:30 p.m. Tuesday, Feb. 26 at the Wellington Day School, recently re-located at the old House of Prayer, 5719 Pioneer Place, between Bayview Road and Maxwelton Road.

Trying to lube the deal by financing an electric golf cart, which will be operated by the Langley Main Street Association — not the city, was the wrong approach, council members said after Gordon and Field left. The soonest Langley could change its rules for harbor lighting would be in April. And even then, the

outcome is not guaranteed to please the port district. The hope is that a new marina will accommodate more boat traffic, and in turn, more revenue for both the port district and the city. Ben Watanabe can be reached at bwatanabe@

impose a four-year sentence, which is the maximum under the standard range. The plea bargain was an anticlimactic end to a family’s tragedy and a complex whodunnit that detectives with the Island County Sheriff’s Office unraveled over a matter of years. Douglas was found dead, buckled in the front seat of his Chevrolet Tracker, next to a wooded driveway on Wahl Road near Freeland two days after Christmas of 2003. The father of two had been shot in the head. Detectives developed evidence that James “Jim” Huden was the shooter. He was charged with first-degree murder in 2005 and was wanted on a $1 million warrant. Huden was on the lam until the U.S. Marshal’s Service arrested him in Mexico in June 2011. After the arrest, Detective Mark Plumberg interviewed other witnesses who implicated Huden’s mistress, Peggy Sue Thomas, in the murder. Investigators claimed that Thomas lured

Clinton market seeking vendors Carol Flax, manager of the Clinton Thursday Market, is looking for a few good vendors — or even a lot. Markets are held every Thursday from 3:30 to 7 p.m., July 11 through Aug. 29. Flax is particularly looking for: Fresh local produce, local artists and craftspeople, antiques and collectables, food vendors, plants and garden supplies, local services, musicians, local wineries, breweries and dis-

tillers (the market will have a liquor permit and baked goods. “Or maybe something we haven’t even thought of,” Flax said. “Reserve your own booth, or maybe get together with others and get a shared booth — sell together or trade off — so many possibilities. I want you there.” If interested, contact Flax at clinton or 425-791-1192.

No Budget for a New Car? MAZDA CERTIFIED PRE-OWNED: TAKE CONFIDENCE FOR A JOY RIDE Some things just never get old–like our Mazda Certified PreOwned vehicles. The reason is because only well-maintained, late model vehicles make the cut. That’s why when you purchase one, you can be more than confident it’ll perform with all the hairblowing, eye-catching, heart-pounding, fun-loving, soul-freeing zoom-zoom exhilaration you’d expect from Mazda. Because we want your Certified Pre-Owned Mazda to feel like new, before you put it in your garage, we put it through its paces. Each vehicle is required to endure an uncompromising 150-point inspection inside and out to ensure peak performance. It’s just one confidence-inspiring benefit of the Mazda Certified Pre-Owned Program. 150-Point Detailed Inspection

Each Certified Pre-Owned Mazda undergoes an uncompromising 150-point inspection inside & out.

Certified Pre-Owned Warranties

Drive worry-free knowing that all Certified Pre-Owned Mazdas are backed by extensive Limited Warranties.
