Curbside School backers lay low ahead of levy vote recycling may be dumped By BEN WATANABE Staff reporter

Johnson: Law enforcement remains top priority By JUSTIN BURNETT Staff reporter Curbside recycling on Whidbey Island may get scrapped before ever having the chance to get started. On Monday, the Island County commissioners agreed to revisit last month’s landmark decision to require Island Disposal, the county’s licensed garbage hauler, to roll out a curbside program for customers in Langley and rural parts of Whidbey Island sometime this year. The decision was made in late December, following a discussion that spanned more than five years, during the last days of former Commissioner Angie Homola’s term. She and fellow Democrat Commissioner Helen Price Johnson approved the program in a 2-0 vote. Republican Commissioner Kelly Emerson abstained at the time, but apparently wasn’t done with the issue. She brought it up again Monday, saying the matter may have been settled by a former majority but that she is still getting public comment from people who are against the program. “There is a lot of concern out there,” she said, citing the cost of the program. Her suggestion to revisit the issue at one of the board’s upcoming work sessions was quickly supported by Republican Commissioner Jill Johnson, who unseated Homola in the 2012 November election. Johnson didn’t explain her reasoning at the time but said in a later interview that the See Recycling, A6

Counting on parents, teachers and the school board, South Whidbey’s levy committee has laid low this election. Ballots were mailed last week. Now the fate of $5.9 million annually for the next few years rests largely on a word-of-mouth campaign before the Feb. 12 vote deadline. “It seems like we’re lying low, I just don’t think there’s anybody who’s raising an objection to it,” said Dean Hatt, co-chair of the levy committee. Added Hatt: “The strategy has always been the students, parents, grandparents, the friends and families understand the importance of the yes vote for the school district.” At stake is 39 percent of the district’s $15 million budget. The school board is seeking a sixyear extension of its maintenance and operations levy, which brings in $3.9 million every year. A second levy request is for capital/technology, mostly earmarked for repairs and upgrades to the district’s aging facilities. Steve Scoles, chairman of the school board, said in an earlier Record story that the capital/ tech levy increase was necessary because voters rejected a bond measure sought in 2010. That bond’s failure to gain 60 percent approval marked an end to a long streak of voter support for South Whidbey schools. “They just run the rabbit,” said Dennis Hunter, the levy committee’s other co-chair. “People are just so supportive of schools here.” Securing a majority yes vote, however, has been

Waterline work draws praise, concerns

By BEN WATANABE Staff reporter

Some business leaders in Langley were thankful for early notice of work on First Street. Challis Stringer, Langley’s public works director, sent out staff to inform businesses on First Street of the coming waterline work. Water will be unavailable during “a short time period” while the service is transferred from the old line to the new line. Construction work, reduced street lanes and isolated sidewalk closures were other issues that Public Works addressed in its communication with businesses. The door-to-door notices caught the attention of Bob Thurmond, a

Planters like these on First Street, along with other vegetation, are a concern for Langley business owners. They want to keep the city’s parks green and presentable for tourists, and lobbied Langley City Council for a water right at the Boy and Dog Park. business owner in Langley. “It’s spectacular that someone from the city would come do that at least one day ahead of time,” he told the council during its meeting Jan. 22. Even so, city council members

were still uncertain how they would water the city’s downtown parks, like Boy and Dog Park. The issue was raised at its Jan. 7 meeting, in which adding a water right to the park for a hose bib was proposed. Watering the planters and other

vegetation would be easier if a hose could be added to the park. “I think it’s just really important to think of our future and our future needs,” said Councilwoman Rene Neff. The cost would be a $10,000 transfer from the city’s general fund to its water fund, plus utilities costs. “What we wound up with was the city paying $10,000 for a hose bib, which seemed excessive,” said Councilman Hal Seligson, the city’s mayor pro-tem in the absence of a mayor. Langley is searching for a mayor after Larry Kwarsick resigned following a plea agreement with Island County Prosecutor Greg Banks for falsifying a city document. There were also concerns about finishing the project in time for Langley’s Mystery Weekend in late February. The murder-mystery is a large tourist draw, and this year’s “Gone With The Tide” mystery is scheduled for Feb. 23 and 24. Waterline work is expected to last See Waterline, A6

Dump sales will benefit animal group By JUSTIN BURNETT Staff reporter Buckets half filled with paint, scraps of old lumber and other used building supplies will soon be for sale at the Coupeville dump. Earning their latest merit badge in environmental sustainability, the Island County commissioners this week agreed to allow a nonprofit group to open a re-use store at the county’s solid waste complex. Per the agreement, which was finalized Monday by unanimous vote, the store will be operated by Coupevillebased Whidbey Animal Improvement Foundation, or WAIF. The nonprofit group will run the store out of an old pole-building, located just west of the facility’s commercial entrance, which was built to house the facility’s original recycle center. “I think it’s great to find creative ways to reduce our waste stream,” said Commissioner Helen Price Johnson, who also serves as chairwoman of the board. “And this benefits a nonprofit so it’s a win-win.” According to Mary Anna Cummings, manager of WAIF store in Oak Harbor, the organization’s interest in a re-use store has less to do with dollar signs and more to do with parallel philosophies. WAIF’s overall mission, she said, is to give animals a second chance. A re-use store does the same thing but for building materials. “It’s taking something and giving it a whole new use, a

What profits are made will be put toward the organization’s shelters and various other programs run by the nonprofit. The model for a re-use store is basically the same as a thrift store. Goods are donated, then resold for profit, though usually at a fraction of the cost of buying the same item brand new. In this case, the items sold are largely building materials and a range of other hard-to-recycle goods, such as scrap electronics that are not accepted by the state’s

E-Cycle program — keyboards, mice, fax machines, etc. Various other items, from fishing poles and plastic buckets, may also be collected and resold at the new store. The model is nothing new as similar stores can be found in communities scattered throughout Puget Sound. One, The RE Store in Bellingham, has been in business for 20 years. Whidbey Island got its first in late 2011 with the opening of Habitat for Humanity of Island County’s retail store in Freeland. According to store

Manager Sandra Stipe, they resell all kinds of building

materials and home products, and the store has been

a huge success. Not only are people buying recycled supplies for construction needs at home, but the store is frequented by a range of other customers as well, from artists on the prowl for unique materials to farmers and ranchers who are looking to save some cash by putting old products to innovative new uses. “People buy bathtubs and use them for horse troughs,” Stipe said. “All of this stuff would have ended up in the landfill and people are buying it,” she said. According to Jerry Mingo, recycle coordinator for Island County, making a dent in the county’s waste stream by recovering recyclables, materials that do indeed currently go to a landfill, is one of the primary objectives of the partnership with WAIF. Mingo got the idea to establish a re-use store at the solid waste complex in 2011 after visiting a similar store, See dump, A8

In our opinion

Port, city must work together The relationship between the city of Langley and Port of South Whidbey is critical but on shaky ground with the absence of former Mayor Larry Kwarsick. Kwarsick’s run-in with the law for changing a public document has left Langley without a leader until the mayoral vacancy can be filled. Mayor Pro-Tem Hal Seligson is doing all he can, but he can’t be on top of everything as the city’s temporary, part-time, stand-in mayor. Port commissioners were greeted rather coolly last week when they went to the council to play a game of “let’s make a deal” in public. The port wants to install taller light poles during the upcoming enlargement of the Langley Marina. That would require a change in city code. In return, the port would help purchase the six-passenger electric golf cart the city wants to haul marina users up and down hilly Wharf Street. The tit-for-tat deal was listened to with no enthusiasm. Jeff Arango, city planner, went so far as to say of the proposal, “That’s completely inappropriate, to be honest.” That pretty much shot down all the good will Kwarsick had built up with the port over the last year. Kwarsick and the port commissioners were on the same track, focused on completing the longdelayed and stripped down marina project, and Kwarsick would have listened to the need for a few higher light poles. It makes some sense. Boaters would have a clearer view of Langley Marina as they pass by and perhaps decided to stop for a night in the marina and shop the next day in town. Marina users wouldn’t have to stumble around in poor lighting from the present Hobbit-sized poles only a few feet high. Lighting is always a troublesome issue. Neighbors often don’t want light at night, while visitors, walkers, joggers and boaters want more light. But the variety of different directional lighting available today is endless and a solution could have been found to satisfy both the port and city residents. All is not lost. The port still wants improved lighting and the city has a code amendment process in place to make it happen. All it needs is some strong leadership the port can trust and work with. That should be one of the top criteria as the city council sets about to find a new mayor.

WAIF volunteers raise the barn To the editor: Whidbey Animals’ Improvement Foundation (WAIF) is grateful for the extraordinary volunteer efforts that went into constructing WAIF’s multi-purpose barn located on WAIF’s new shelter site. From Clinton to Oak Harbor, animal lovers donated over 800 hours of volunteer labor to come together to help create a legacy of caring for Whidbey Island’s stray and abandoned companion animals. Whidbey Island’s island-wide animal shelter would like to recognize the huge volunteer efforts that have gone into building the multi-purpose barn. From July through December of 2012, over 100 volunteers generously donated their free time of over 800 hours in less-than-ideal weather conditions to help build a multipurpose barn that will help WAIF continue to grow its mission of helping the stray and abandoned animal population of Whidbey Island.

the barn represents significant progress as the first phase in WAIF’s new shelter construction. We’re extremely humbled and appreciative of the involvement of the community and members of the military. Everyone’s willingness to donate their free time and help WAIF build its new barn is an energizing first step toward WAIF’s future. It’s a very exciting time for WAIF and it’s been made possible with the generous help and dedication of our volunteers. It was a true coming together of the local community and indicative of the giving nature of Whidbey Island — an inspiring example of civic pride that WAIF was grateful to be a part of. Groups such as the Lions, military personnel and individuals gathered from all over the island to work together on the barn’s construction. In addition to the volunteer labor, WAIF also received generous in-kind donations of architectural services, general construction management, and materials. Making this all possible are also the generous donations that WAIF has received to date through its capital campaign for the new shelter. The funds donated have allowed WAIF to proceed in the construction of the barn and when the new shelter is built, the multi-purpose barn will be used to hold events, programs and educational classes for those passionate about caring

Recycling CONTINUED FROM A1

“mandatory” aspects of the program are a major hiccup for her, especially when there is a “looming law and justice need.” She made it clear that she isn’t against curbside recycling, but that times are tough and if people have to pay more for something it should be for more cops, not recycled milk jugs and pop cans. “I’m not sure I’m willing to prioritize recycling over law enforcement,” Johnson said. “At the very minimum, I want to have this conversation,” she said. The approved curbside program is nearly identical to one pitched in 2007 and just as controversial. The major hurdles were that glass won’t be accepted and that the monthly cost — estimated at $11.60 or less — would be applied to all existing customers in Langley and rural parts of Whidbey Island. There is nothing that forces people to remain or even become Island Disposal customers, but many complained that they couldn’t just have garbage pick up and continue to selfhaul their recyclables. Similarly, many griped about having to pay for a curbside program when they would still have to make a trip to nearby recycling centers to get rid of glass.

WN

Although Price Johnson was a supporter of the program in December, there was little she could do against Monday’s majority of the board — something she hasn’t had to face since taking office in 2008. Price Johnson, who is also the current chairwoman of the board, agreed to revisit the issue again but said she was unsure what legal options the commissioners really have to reverse the decision. The board’s vote last month to require its licensed hauler to offer curbside service set events in motion. Island Disposal is to submit a proposal to the Washington Utilities and Transportation Commission for review. The regulatory agency must then make a determination before the program can be implemented. Price Johnson rehashed many of the benefits of the program, from the possible savings customers may achieve by reducing trash output to the impact to county coffers by increasing overall recycling. She also noted that not everyone is critical of the program, that many residents have been advocating for a curbside program for years. “I just want to make sure people realize there are two sides to that,” Price Johnson said.

Turks torch Falcon boys basketball inside, outside By BEN WATANABE Staff reporter

LANGLEY — One Sultan player and one play highlighted South Whidbey’s struggles this season. Turk senior Brock VandenEkart brought the ball up the court, where he was met by the Falcon boys basketball team’s man-toman defense. On the perimeter, it was 6-4 Falcon junior Brandon Asay’s job to defend VandenEkart. Dribbling, VandenEkart watched the Turks’ offense unfold. Asay gave him a step, not wanting to let the Turks’ leading scorer blow by him to the rim. Instead, VandenEkart pulled up for a three that snapped through the net, giving Sultan its largest lead of the first half, 29-21. “All season long we’ve had a really hard time in the third quarter … we just aren’t able to keep up. I think sometimes the guys, myself included, come out content being close or only down a little.” South Whidbey never led Friday night in the 60-44 loss, the Falcons’ third consecutive and 13th by double digits. VandenEkart dismantled the Falcon defense with drib-

field goals. The Falcons (2-10 Cascade Conference; 4-15

overall) lack a go-to player, someone who can create a shot for himself and get to the rim at will, or a shutdown defender. And when an offense is as out-of-sync as South Whidbey’s has been, a go-to guy can bail it out of a poor possession. On Friday, VandenEkart and Steven Branham were those guys for Sultan. “Brock’s a great player,” said Simmons, who was often the primary defender on VandenEkart. “He’s definitely one of the best, if not the best, players in the league.” “He was sinking his shots, I was very impressed by his play tonight.” South Whidbey, however, turned the ball over too often to rely on its half-court offense powered by forwards Nick French and Parker Collins. Despite the final blowout score, South Whidbey trailed only three points at halftime. The Falcons were tied with the Turks early at 8-8, South Whidbey’s only tie of the game. Sultan closed the first quarter on an 8-2 run and closed with back-to-back Turk possessions, thanks to a steal by VandenEkart.

Grapplers wrap season, tune up for sub-regional bouts By BEN WATANABE Staff reporter

Coming off a slugfest Thursday in the Cascade Conference finale, South Whidbey was ready for a change-of-pace tournament Saturday in Tacoma. South Whidbey’s wrestlers did not accumulate a team score at the Spec. Joseph T. Caron Memorial All-Comers Tournament at Washington High School. The Falcons’ lack of team points wasn’t because they wrestled poorly, it was the tournament’s format as a round-robin match. Groupings of four wrestlers from different schools competed against each other, then other groups. “Everybody wrestled pretty well,” said Falcon head coach Jim Thompson. “It was just kind of a tuneup.” Thompson’s and the Falcons’ eyes were looking ahead. Come Friday, Feb. 1, South Whidbey will begin its push for the Tacoma Dome, where the state wrestling tournament is held. Not quite finished with regular season wrestling, South Whidbey

Ben Watanabe / The Record

First-year Falcon wrestler Beck Davis, seen here overpowering an Archbishop Murphy wrestler, continued his prowess at a roundrobin tournament in Tacoma on Jan. 26. tended to its opponents at the Caron Memorial tournament. Most of South Whidbey’s wrestlers finished with two victories, but none finished at the top of their weight classes. “I thought it was a very tough varsity tournament,” Thompson

said. Of South Whidbey’s traveling team, Thompson highlighted steady varsity grapplers Kyrell Broyles, Andy Madsen and Beck Davis, all juniors. Davis, a firstyear Falcon wrestler, lost only one match, which could have been a

victory but for a “rookie” mistake. Thompson recalled how Davis tried to tilt, got out of position, pulled his opponent on top of himself and was pinned. It was a similar story for Madsen, one of the Cascade Conference’s top 138-pound wrestlers. Madsen reversed his opponent and put him in the country boy move in an attempt for a pin, but Madsen was too high and lost his base, got turned and was pinned. “He was on his way to winning that match,” Thompson said. The Falcons’ greatest struggle wasn’t on the mats. South Whidbey has battled illness in its ranks, as well as unannounced absences of varsity wrestlers. Three upperclassmen did not make the trip and did not notify Thompson they would miss it, he said. “What a time to get hit with this,” said Thompson of the illnesses sweeping through his team. But having players vanish from the program this late in the season was harder for him to accept. “It’s really upsetting because

we put ourselves out there, threequarters of the team shows up, and then five don’t,” Thompson said. Injuries also took their toll, especially concerning given how close South Whidbey is to the 1A subregional tournament. Falcon junior Calvin Shimada, who has wrestled up much of the year at 195 pounds, missed the tournament with a strained neck after being thrown Thursday. Pat Monell, a senior in the 220, forfeit his remaining matches after injuring his left shoulder during his first match Saturday. South Whidbey travels to Squalicum High School on Friday for the sub-regional tournament. The top four wrestlers in each weight advance to the regional tournament. Thompson said he would take 126-pound Steven Lutsock, 138-pound junior Jake Baesler and 152-pound Elijah Matthew, all junior varsity wrestlers, to the sub-regional tournament. “I like Jake’s spunk, I like the way he wrestles,” Thompson said. “He’s a battler.”

dump CONTINUED FROM A3

Around Again, in Sequim. The organization had great success in reselling non-toxic latex and acrylic paints, reporting that paint sales alone made up the financial backbone of the program. “The light bulb just went off,” Mingo said. Although the county currently accepts toxic paints untreated and in liquid form, latex and acrylics must be thickened first. The deal with WAIF removes that step while also reducing the county’s garbage stream. The agreement also specifies that WAIF is to provide a yard attendant who will assist the public at the tailgate to identify and separate materials that can be resold at the new re-store. Education and setting an expectation with the public for recovering recyclables will be an important part of the job, Mingo said. For those benefits to Island County, the deal allows WAIF to use the building free of charge. Also, the county will

contribute $5,000 for fencing, signs and other miscellaneous start up costs. Several people hauling garbage to the dump on Wednesday voiced support for the recycling store. “That would be a really good idea,” said Chris Bryan, a Freeland resident. “There’s a lot of stuff that people throw away that really can be reused.” “Anything that can be recycled, that doesn’t have to be thrown away, that’s good for everybody,” echoed Ray Heltsley, a Coupeville resident. The program isn’t without critics, however. Barbara Moran, founder of the nonprofit group Whidbey Animal Guild, asked the board Monday to table the proposal for several reasons. She claimed not enough had been done to let the other nonprofit groups know the county was looking for such a partner, but also that it was missing out on potential revenue by outsourcing to another organization. “We’re losing out on a lot of money,” she said, in an interview after the meeting.

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.

out to interested nonprofit groups. Ads were placed in

three Whidbey newspapers, he said. To ensure adequate participation, Mingo said he also contacted six groups directly he felt might be potential candidates. Despite the efforts, only two groups responded and WAIF was determined to have the stronger proposal, he said. As for the potential for revenue, Mingo said it would probably be cost prohibitive for the county to run the store itself. The cost in personnel alone, for just one person, would be about $40,000, he said. Although the commissioners did ask a few questions about how the agreement will work, such as why WAIF won’t be required to pay rent, in the end the board made it clear that it supported the proposal with a unanimous vote. Cummings said the store would partially open in March, likely for one or two days a week. The hope is to be open five days a week by April. “I think it’s going to be a very interesting and exciting project,” she said.

Tuesday, Jan. 15 10:08 a.m. — A Pioneer Place Park caller reported fraud on the caller’s Boeing Credit Union account. It was unknown how access was gained to the account. 10:49 a.m. — A caller reported a residential burglary at her sister-in-law’s residence on Swede Hill

Time to get cookin’ for the Souperbowl WHIDBEY RECIPES Margaret Walton

No need to love football to enjoy a good meal Whether or not you’re a fan of football matters little at this point. What’s more important is that the upcoming Super Bowl gives us all a good reason to brighten up these dreary January/February months with a party; nothing fancy, just a good old-fashioned “let’s pool our resources and get together” party. I’m not ashamed to admit I know next to nothing about football, except of course, for the inescapable media blitz about some cruel person pulling the wool over the eyes of one major player of the game, who, I think, must be a few bricks short of a load to believe as he did in the mythical girlfriend. Apart from that, I do also know the names of the two teams playing in the Super Bowl, but that’s about it. So why would I want to throw or even attend a Super Bowl party? The answer to that is, as usual, it’s an outstanding excuse to feature one of my all-time favorite foods as an obvious theme for a party, namely soup. Invite as many family members and/or friends as your TV viewing area will

allow, ask each of them to bring their favorite soup (along with copies of the soup recipe to hand out, if requested). Provide a generous assortment of rolls, bread and crackers, along with two or three salads (fruit, tossed green, coleslaw, Salmagundi, etc.), and let the party begin. As for what to drink? My numerous nephews always bring a lot of their favorite beer, no matter what else is being served; parents always bring whatever their children may want, because I’m not likely to know what that may be, and I make sure there’s ample coffee, tea, mixers and usually a huge pitcher of bloody Mary mix. Dessert can be as simple as a large platter of assorted cookies, homemade or purchased. Informal, easy, buffetstyle; everyone helps themselves to a cup or bowl of soup whenever they feel like sampling the various offerings, sits where they can view the TV or not, as preferred, and all I have to do is remember to ask someone who knows what channel the game is on to turn on and tune in the TV. And, of course, I feel obligated to check out as many of the soups as I’m able, just in the event there’s something new and outstanding I should pass along to you. What a great way to enjoy a sport you seldom watch and know little about.

RECIPES Today’s recipes are, naturally, all about soup, with the only problem being which ones to choose. I’ve been gathering soup recipes since I was in college and it’s one of my fattest files. It’s the ultimate meal, after all, because you can turn virtually any ingredients you may have on hand into a pot of soup, enough for two or 20. (Remember

the old story about stone soup?) Here are a couple of hearty, satisfying, delicious suggestions. First, you can’t have a Souper Bowl party without a pot of chili, but it’s not a dish you expect from Italy. Nevertheless, wait until you try this Italian chili before you say, no way.

ITALIAN CHILI 1 lb. bulk Italian sausage 2 T. olive oil 2 cups diced onion ½ lb. pepperoni sticks, cubed 1 T. minced garlic 1 T. tomato paste ½ cup dry red wine 2 T. balsamic vinegar 2 cans (28 oz. each) whole tomatoes 1 cup chicken broth (or vegetable broth, if preferred) 1 can each (14 oz.) cannellini beans and red kidney beans, drained and rinsed 1 T. dried Italian seasoning Salt and red pepper flakes, to taste Sour cream, sprigs of fresh basil, as topping/ garnish In a large pot or Dutch oven, sauté the sausage over med.-high heat until browned. Add onion, pepperoni and garlic; cook 5 min. Stir in tomato paste and sauté 1 min. Deglaze pot with wine and vinegar; reduce until nearly evaporated. Add tomatoes, broth, beans and seasoning. Simmer 45 min. to 1 hr. Can be made ahead, refrigerated and reheated when ready to serve. Serve with sour cream and sprigs of fresh basil on the side to garnish. Note: This keeps well on the buffet table in a Crock-Pot; have the sour cream/basil sprigs or chopped to add, as preferred. Serves 8-10. Because we’re talking

a Super Bowl party, there may or may not be children present, and this particular soup is an excellent “adults only,” not-your-usual tomato soup. If children are in the mix, monitor this buffet soup tureen.

BLOODY MARY SOUP 14 oz. canned diced tomatoes 1-½ cups chicken stock (or vegetable, if preferred; I add a bottle of clam juice) 2-3 garlic cloves, crushed Small bunch of basil leaves ½ t. celery seed Dash of Worcestershire Sauce Dash of Tabasco, to taste (optional) 4 T. vodka, or to taste Salt and freshly ground black pepper, to taste Sprigs of Italian flat-leaf parsley, for garnish Put tomatoes and broth in a saucepan, add garlic, basil and celery seed; cook over med. heat for 3-4 min. Transfer to a food processor or blender and process until smooth. Return to the rinsed saucepan. Season to taste with Worcestershire, Tabasco and salt and pepper. Stir in the vodka. Warm until ready to serve, with parsley on the side for garnish as desired. (This is best if served in small round bowls, or cups.) Serves 4, is easily doubled. The Tuscany area of Italy is known for, among other things, its bean soups; hearty, satisfying and full of flavor. There are several variations; this is one very traditional Tuscan White Bean Soup and it’s outstanding on a chilly winter evening. Also great for a Souperbowl buffet.

TUSCAN WHITE BEAN SOUP 6 oz. pancetta, cut into 1-inch cubes 12 cups water, plus extra as possibly needed 1 lb. dried cannellini beans, picked over and rinsed 1 large onion (don’t bother to peel), cut in half, plus 1 med. onion, peeled and chopped 4 garlic cloves, whole and unpeeled, plus 3 cloves, peeled and minced 1 bay leaf Salt and freshly ground black pepper, to taste ¼ cup extra virgin olive oil, plus extra for a drizzle when serving 1 sprig rosemary Balsamic vinegar, for serving In a Dutch oven, cook pancetta over med. heat until just golden, 8-10 min. Add water, beans, halved onion, unpeeled garlic cloves, bay leaf and 1 t. salt. Bring to a boil over med.-high heat, cover the pot partially and reduce heat to low. Simmer, stirring occasionally, until beans are almost tender, 1 to 1 ½ hrs. Remove beans from heat,

cover, and let stand until beans are tender, about 30 min. Drain beans, reserving cooking liquid (you should have about 5 cups; if not, add water to reach 5 cups). Discard pancetta, onion, unpeeled garlic cloves and bay leaf. Spread beans in an even layer on a rimmed baking sheet and let cool. While beans are cooling, heat oil in the pot over med. heat until shimmering. Add chopped onion and cook, stirring occasionally, until softened, 5-6 min. Stir in minced garlic and cook until fragrant, about 30 seconds (don’t burn!). Add cooked beans and reserved cooking liquid. Increase heat to med.-high and bring soup to simmer. Submerge rosemary sprig in the soup, cover and let stand off the heat for 15-20 min. Discard rosemary, season with salt and pepper to taste. It’s ready to serve; keep warm on stove top or in buffet warmer/Crock-Pot. Have olive oil and balsamic vinegar available; the soup is traditionally drizzled with olive oil when served, with balsamic vinegar to also drizzle in optional. Serves 6-8.

Cloud library makes eBook checkout easy Growing catalog offers thousands of new titles

Effective this week, patrons of Sno-Isle libraries have a simple, streamlined option for checking out and reading eBooks, thanks to the 3M Cloud Library eBook Lending Service and the Polaris Integrated Library System (ILS). The service combines digital content, in-library hardware and apps for borrowing and reading eBooks, all within the library’s own online catalog, creating an unrivaled patron experience. “This system makes it very easy for readers to browse our eBook collec-

tion, check out items, and read them on a wide variety of devices,” said Kendra Trachta, deputy director of Sno-Isle Libraries, in a release. “It is important to us that our eBook collection is appealing to readers of all ages and technology skill levels, and the 3M Cloud Library integrated into our catalog makes it simple for anyone to get started.” The new system has several flexible features that give patrons choices for browsing and reading. Mobile device compatibility: The 3M Cloud Library app is available for download from the iTunes Store, Google Play and the NOOK Apps Storefront, and its eBooks are compatible with PCs, Macs, iPads, iPhones,

iPod Touch, NOOK Tablets, Android devices, smartphones and Kobo, Sony and NOOK eReaders. Using these devices, patrons can browse, check out and read eBooks all without leaving the 3M Cloud Library app. To begin reading, patrons simply download the app, enter their library card number and select the titles of their choice from their library’s catalog. 3M Discovery Terminals: Patrons at the library can browse the catalog on these electronic kiosks with an intuitive touch-based interface. The technology behind the 3M Cloud Library and its integration with Polaris is designed to give libraries maximum flexibility. Sno-Isle

patrons will experience the benefits of the integration with Polaris when they can browse both print and digital items in the library’s collection from the same catalog — a feature not offered by all eBook systems. With this capability, readers can browse the collection, check out and place holds on eBooks without ever leaving their familiar library catalog. eBook hold notifications will come directly from the catalog, using the notification preferences patrons have already selected. Librarians will also experience the time-saving benefits of receiving cataloging records in real time, without having to manually import MARC files, and their circu-

lation reports will reflect the digital circulation as well as their print circulation. “This system is specifically designed to be the easiest eBook platform for both patrons and library staff,” said Tom Mercer, marketing manager, 3M Cloud Library. “Now readers can spend less time navigating the technology and more time reading.” “Both 3M and Polaris set out to deliver an eBook system that put control of digital content back into the library’s hands,” said Bill Schickling, president and CEO, Polaris Library Systems. “In doing this, we jointly created a system that keeps the patron inside the library’s catalog and provides them with a seamless eBook lending experience.”

In the cold of winter there are two weekends destined to warm your heart on Whidbey Island. Feb. 9 and 10 and Feb. 16 to 18 are the dates for the eighth annual Whidbey Island Vintners Association’s Red Wine & Chocolate Tour. Chase away winter blues and celebrate Valentine’s Day with two favorite things — exceptional handcrafted red wines and luscious handmade chocolate treats. While the wines age to perfection in barrels and tanks over the winter, the vintners are busy sampling chocolates to create the perfect pairing of that decadent treat to their handcrafted wines. Four of the island’s wineries will open 11 a.m. to 5 p.m. for participants, who, with a souvenir glass in hand, will visit their tasting rooms to see what is in store for them. Some tasting rooms also feature work by local artists, live music with local musicians and food. Some tasting rooms are at the wineries, and some grow their own grapes so you can tour the vineyards and farms. Tickets are available at Blooms Winery Taste for Wine & Art at the Bayview Corner, Spoiled Dog Winery on Maxwelton Road, Holmes HarborCellarsonHoneymoon Bay Road and Comforts of Whidbey on Witter Road, or from www.brownpapertickets. com/event/316256.

Joan Nelson brightens the day in Clinton even when it’s gray and raining. Among her many contributions through the years, she was instrumental in starting the Clinton Library and making it part of the Sno-Isle Regional Library System.

Clinton’s ‘unofficial mayor’ brightens the day By SUSAN KNICKERBOCKER Contributing writer

“It was one of those days, actually it had been a month of those days, where nothing was going right,” said Sandy Wright. “I promised my daughter I would take her to the library book sale, so I dragged myself there. A woman we didn’t know took special interest in us. She told my daughter what a smart choice of books she selected, and complimented me on my parenting. This woman had us laughing out loud and I left feeling so good about myself that the rest of the day was great. This person that brightened our day was Joan Nelson.” Nelson, whose first name is pronounced “Jo Ann,” perks up people’s days in her various volunteer activities, be it Whidbey Island Center for the Arts, CERT, Clinton Water District, Ferry Advisory Committee, Sub Area Planning, Sheriff’s precinct volunteer, Sno-Isle Libraries, or any of her many other community involvements. She could brighten anyone’s day, said Sara Benum, neighbor and fellow volunteer. “Joan is always looking out for other people and available if you need her. She saves all her change in a jar, and when the jar gets full she donates it to local charities and starts filling it up again. Joan has organized Clinton Library book sales complete with her cookies. She is my role model in so many ways, she’s absolutely honest and trustworthy,” Benum said, “except when she tells you she is 5’7 as she is actually 4’11. Patty Norman, neighbor, said, “Joan is the mayor of all, she’s volunteered for a bazillion years. Her daily walks are like a yellow streak of lightning; as she walks in her yellow jacket, she goes faster than my car. She is so caring, and her

sense of humor and wit never quit.” Nelson opens the door to her home and greets the visitor with a big smile and a large lapel pin that says Town Grouch. She has the fireplace lit and a platter of healthy snacks prepared. When asked about the “Town Grouch” pin she answers, “Oh, that was my name when I worked for Dr. Purdy in Langley, because I complained about this and complained about that,” she laughed. “For instance, why doesn’t everyone learn English in this country? I think when we call and get a recording it should say: press 1 for English, press 2 to learn English.” She continued, “And how come I don’t have a neck?” She stands up, turns to the side and shows she hasn’t a noticeable neck, and says “but I am 5-foot-7, you know. “I try to look at the funny side of life, so I don’t cry a lot,” she said, showing a magnet on her refrigerator that reads, ‘Poop happens, just pick it up and move on.’ “We all have much in life we can cry about.” She pours coffee into a cup but spills it, as her hands shake because of an “Essential Tremor” she’s lived with since she was a teenager. When asked if this has been a hardship for her, she answered, “Not really, I have learned to compensate for it, and others have had to compensate for it too,” she said, smiling. “It can be embarrassing, but then everyone has hardships to overcome.” Growing up was not easy as her family was very poor. Her mother had to work to support the family, as her dad was in the hospital often. Inquiring about a family photo on the wall of her and her husband and three children, she begins to tear up. “You know losing my husband 10 years ago was very hard, but losing my son almost three years ago was the worst.” Her hus-

It was there that a special school assembly made a film for him with the students singing ‘We love you Mr. Nelson’.” “At the local Celebration of Life for Don, held at our high school auditorium, leis were distributed to all who attended. Many were wearing Hawaiian shirts in honor of Don, his See hometown hero, A13

favorite mode of clothing.” She gets a Kleenex to wipe her tears and re-composes. “We were fortunate to have him for 59 years, I have to look at it that way.” Nelson said faith and humor comfort her every day. “Each night I ask that God help me be a better person and to help others.” Regarding humor she said, “If you really want to laugh go and see the local group of guys called ‘Rural Characters.’ They are a panic! One of their routines is about ferry workers.” She gets up and acts out the entire storied song. “We have to have fun, it’s the only way to get through life,” she remarked as she showed a favorite poem: “This is so true,” she said, reciting the lines: “I know you have problems as great as my own, I’m forced to admit it is true. But consider the fact mine happens to me and yours only happens to you.” Does she have regrets? “Oh yes, I am a work in progress, I need a lot of improvements. Here’s an example that has bothered me for over 70 years. I opened the door for a woman at a shopping center, and when she thanked me, I said ‘Oh that’s OK, I would have done it for a dog.’ I thought at the time I was being funny, but afterwards I realized that was extremely rude. Since then I have tried to be more thoughtful.

Joan Nelson sorts books in the building named in honor of her late husband, Don Nelson, who was a community leader in his own right. A favorite she came across that day was titled, “The Essential Handbook of Victorian Etiquette.” “More importantly I wish I had been a more patient parent with our children, less frugal and more understanding.” Daughter Robin Hernandez wrote, “I always say I have the best mother in the world, and I truly mean it, everyone that meets her loves her. She was the quintessential stay-at-home mom, making everything from our food, clothes, to building cabinets. She and my dad taught us we can do anything

if we put our minds to it. Their volunteering taught us to care about others and our community.” Nelson said of her husband, “He was the perfect husband, always proud of me for no reason. You know in the last month I have dreamed of him often, do you suppose this means I am getting ready to see him again? I wonder what heaven is like; you know at my age one does think of these things.

Meals on Wheels keep rollin’ with $25,000 grant Retail giant helps Whidbey senior services By JUSTIN BURNETT Staff reporter A South Whidbey-based non-profit group that provides hot meals to senior citizens around Island County will have a little extra gas money this year, thanks to a $25,000 grant from the Walmart Foundation. Senior Services of Island

County was awarded the money in late December through the mega-store’s Washington State Giving Program, which gave a total of $750,000 in 2012, according to an announcement earlier this month. Of that, $375,000 went to nine non-profit organizations that work to address a variety of basic needs, including hunger relief and job training through innovative programming. “In addition to the thousands of associate volunteer hours and the in-kind donations throughout the year,

Sheriff sees spike in gun permits By Jessie Stensland Staff reporter The growing number of gun permits requested countywide became a topic of discussion at an Oak Harbor City Council meeting last week. A wounded Army veteran caused a bit of a stir at the meeting 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 Oak Harbor 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 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.”

we are very pleased to grant funds to these wonderful community organizations in Washington state,” said Madeleine Havener, senior director and regional general manager for Washington and Oregon at Walmart. “Their programs provide vital support for those in need, and we’re very proud to support their continued success and to help people live better.” Senior Services, the largest non-profit organization serving older adults on Whidbey or Camano islands, will use the money for its Meals on Wheels program,

which assists more than 300 people a year. The program uses a small army of about 90 volunteers to deliver a hot meal to the elderly at their homes, three days a week. Recipients have the option of getting frozen meals as well. Not only does the program help make life a little easier for senior citizens, allowing them to stay in their homes longer, but it’s also an opportunity for some to check in with them and see how they are doing. “Sometimes these are the only people these seniors

see all week,” said Cheryn Weisner, executive director for Senior Services. Over the past few years, need has risen while revenue sources have dwindled, Weisner said. Often, grants received are between $2,000 to $10,000, which makes Walmart’s gift “significant,” she said. Nutrition Program Director Debra Metz confirmed that the grant amounts to about 10 percent of Meals on Wheels’s total budget. Most of the money will be spent on food but some will go toward mileage

Illnesses bump school absenteeism Record staff Colds, fevers and the flu have hit South Whidbey schools recently, increasing the rates of absent students. Marcia Statz, one of the district’s registered nurses, said the flu missed South Whidbey until Jan. 18. “We have not had any positive cases of influenza among our students until today,” Statz said in an email that day. “We received report that there has been one positive (lab confirmed) case at South Whidbey Elementary School.” In the ensuing days, South Whidbey Elementary School endured the highest rate of absent students. About 13 percent of the school’s 520 students were out sick the week of Jan. 18. Sore throats, headaches, low-grade fevers and coughing were the leading reasons students were either sent or stayed home. Langley Middle School averaged about eight percent absenteeism since

returning from the district’s winter break Jan. 7. A stomach illness, marked by stomach pain, nausea, vomiting and body aches, rolled through the student population recently. The high school’s absenteeism has been between eight and 10 percent, mainly because of sore throats and headaches. Any cases of the flu are reported by the school nurse to the Island County Health Department. Across the state, 17 influenza-related deaths were reported as of Jan. 23. South Whidbey residents made a run on flu immunization in early January at Island Drug. Chris Rogge, the pharmacist at the Clinton location, said he was out of flu shots two weeks ago, but recently saw the demand plummet and had

not administered a vaccination Monday. “Usually, most people come in October,” Rogge said.

It awarded the non-profit group $5,000 about five years ago, she said. “They’ve done a lot to help our community and we are very grateful,” Metz said.

TAKE AN INSPECTION TOUR!

If it’s time to sell your home, there are two steps you can take to make the sale more rewarding. First, ask your agent to role-play as a critical buyer. Second, have a home inspection by a licensed inspector. Having your representative tour your home can be enlightening. Perhaps the doorbell is cracked, the front door in need of paint, and the bedroom screen torn. Or is your bathroom tile in need of new grout? Is your cat box in the utility room? Buyers in search of their dream home notice these things. Your “only a coffee stain” may register as the need for complete recarpeting and improving can eliminate buyer excuses for a low offer. A home inspector can provide you with an inspection report which can justify your asking price and be very convincing to quality-conscious buyers. Complete all repairs and improvements before buyers see your home to encourage a full-price offer in short order.

hometown hero What others say CONTINUED FROM A13 about Joan programs about making envelopes from colorful papers. She was patient with the kids, and made them feel so successful. Joan invited me to stay at her home when we had a big surprise snowstorm several years ago, because she was worried about me driving to Greenbank. She was a marvelous hostess, giving up her bedroom. I would have happily slept on the couch, but she insisted that I sleep in her bedroom in a comfortable bed. I feel like this exemplifies who Joan is. “When I look up and see Joan coming into the library it brightens my day. She adds joy to the lives of others through her sunny personality.”

“Joan may be small, but her heart is big, and she is one of the kindest and most thoughtful people I have ever met. She is always open to newcomers and new learning experiences, and is a dedicated volunteer for her community. Joan doesn’t seek the limelight, but prefers quietly working behind the scenes to do her part to make Clinton a better place to live, whether she’s making brownies for the Friends of the Library book sale volunteers, serving as a water commissioner, or teaching a crafts class to preschoolers at the library. Joan is a treasure in our community.” — Betty Freeman, writer and volunteer for WIN

“I have been lucky enough to know Joan in my personal and professional life. On the personal side she has been a second mom to me and I’ve yet to find a question when I was challenged that I was too afraid to ask or she was unwilling to answer and for that I will be eternally grateful. Her life experiences, some happy, some sad, have given her a quiet wisdom that is fun to share in conversation and one thing you could always be sure of was its honesty. She has always demonstrated a strong sense of commitment to community service and has been active on numerous boards and committees and has volunteered all over South Whidbey. “In a day and time when most of us can only find time to stand on the sidelines and throw fruit she found the time

and the courage to get involved and try and make a difference. She’s the ‘Energizer Bunny’ and has been a shining example of how to stay young while growing older.” — Mike Helland, Clinton Water District manager, fire commissioner “She’s such a special person, we go back a long way. She is so involved with the community. I always say Joan’s the mayor of Clinton, though she doesn’t like that name. She helps out in little and big ways, she’s a great role model for us all. She’s long been respected as was her late husband Don.” — Joan Raymond, Friends of Clinton Library volunteer “She and her husband, Don, had been among

the original group that convinced the county and Sno-Isle Libraries that Clinton had outgrown a bookmobile and needed its own library, an effort that took over 10 years. “She’s also spent many years on the Board of the Clinton Water District, CERT, the Clinton Community Hall and Clinton Future Search. She demonstrates an abiding interest in improving Clinton for the benefit of all. Typical of her unpretentious nature, much of the volunteer work she performs goes on behind the scenes and without recognition. Her interest in and service to our community is impressive and in my case has been infectious. She is the kind of person I wish I’d known my whole life.” — Cynthia Patereau, friend “Joan always has an ear to lend, and good advice prefaced with, ‘None of my business, but I’ll tell you what I think.’ And then we laugh. What can I say except that I am so glad we crossed paths in 1991 and tap-danced our way to friendship. She taught me how to embrace life with the spirit of adventure since my husband passed. Joan is my hero.” — Claire Rich, SW volunteer “My grandma is truly a force to be reckoned with. She’s fiercely independent, a world traveler, raised three amazing children. Gardener! Cook! She sews! Tap dances! She’s creative. I could keep going on but even after all of that she still has time to help out in her hometown. She’s truly an inspiration and I admire her so much.” — Latoya Berry, 36, granddaughter “I met Joan in the first grade; she was delightful way back then and never changed. She has the unusual ability to be perfectly honest in what she says, and does it without offending anyone. She has a great sense of

humor, seeing the “fun” in most everything, and happily sharing it with one and all. I truly admire her.” — Doris Nolan, longtime friend “Joan and her late husband, Don, were instrumental in forming the Clinton Library, as well as pushing for the library to join the Sno-Isle Library Association. Joan also volunteers for WICA and contributes to Good Cheer. Within the Friends of the Library group, she has held many positions, and she is still active with the monthly book sales. Her many years as a volunteer in the community have earned her the title of being Clinton’s unofficial mayor. “She refers to herself as the Town Grouch but she’s far from that! She does light up the room when she enters. She makes being involved in Clinton area activities a joy.” — Linda Senff, Rotarian “What a great mom, grandma and greatgrandma she is! I can’t think of a time when my parents were not involved in some community activity. I have been so fortunate in every way to have the mom and dad I have had.” — Marilee Wamsley, eldest daughter

“If she feels strongly about a cause or organization, she volunteers. If something needs doing, it usually doesn’t occur to her to ask for help; she believes she can do almost anything herself. She’s always been quirky. When people ask her how tall she is, she stands up as tall as she can make herself and says, ‘I’m 5’7.’ They’d almost always take a step back, look her up and down, then see the look in her eye — and not argue with her. She’s an inspiration to me in many ways and I know I can always count on her if I need help.” Why—wJoanie a i t toNelson, s ave m on n i g h daughter-in-law t for a f re e qu o te o

Island Transit antenna helps emergency services By NATHAN WHALEN Staff reporter

Nathan Whalen / The Record

Island Transit executive director Martha Rose talks with a resident about the proposed 40-foot antenna that will be installed behind the new maintenance building.

About a dozen or so neighbors living near Island Transit on Central Whidbey came to a meeting with questions about a new antenna planned as part of its new headquarters. Island Transit officials want to install a 40-foot antenna behind the agen-

cy’s new maintenance facility. The antenna would 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. 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. If a person was standing in the cherry picker, it would be approximately 40 feet tall. 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 at approximately $35,000, wasn’t ready yet. Island Transit held the public meeting as a requirement to get the antenna approved by Island County. Joe Sheldon, 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 during the meeting. Island Transit is constructing a new headquarters campus that includes an administration building and a maintenance building large enough to house 12 bus bays. The new buildings will provide enough space to meet Island Transit’s needs for the next 20 years. The construction project is being funded by a $17.92 million grant from the Federal Transit Authority’s “State of Good Repair” program.
