Staffing woes

Town looks at outsourcing police, other options By Justin Burnett Staff reporter

Under one of several options being considered by the Coupeville Town Council to address staffing woes in the Marshal’s Office, law enforcement services may be contracted out to a neighboring agency. Last week, the council unanimously approved a not-to-exceed $10,000 contract with Snohomish County Undersheriff Tom Davis for consulting services at their regular Tuesday meeting. Davis has a private consulting firm and will investigate the viability of outsourcing law enforcement services to the Island County Sheriff’s Office, the Oak Harbor Police Department or both. Specifically, he is to identify service options, negotiate potential costs with the neighboring agencies and then help town officials evaluate whether this is the best option.

The two other solutions under consideration include: reorganizing the marshal’s office within the existing budget — the number of officers would be reduced from five to four and funding from the dissolved position reallocated to the remaining officers — and increasing pay and benefits through a yet-tobe-determined tax increase. Both of those options are being looked at by Mayor Nancy Conard and Marshal Lance Davenport. In an interview this week, Councilman and Mayor Pro-tem Bob Clay said nothing is decided, but contracting out law enforcement services, and the possibility of dissolving the marshal’s office altogether, is a consideration. “It’s really hard for a town our size to provide services like we used to,” said Clay, referring to long-gone Coupeville agencies, such as the town fire department and library. “We’re just trying to look for a better way to spend the taxpayers money and get the services we need,” Clay said.

According to Conard, it’s way too soon to make any conclusions about the fate of the Marshal’s Office. If it was decided to contract out services, and the other options discarded, that may be accomplished in a variety of ways. “It’s the natural thing to assume there would be no marshal’s office, but I’m not sure that’s true,” Conard said. “It may be one option of many.”

Department of two Last fall, the marshal’s office lost 75 percent of its work force when three officers left the tiny department. Two took better paying

jobs elsewhere and another left for personal reasons. Deputy Marshal Hodges Gowdey, a department veteran of nearly 13 years, and Davenport are all that remain. With just two officers left, town officials employed a temporary stop-gap of hiring reserve officers from Oak Harbor and the sheriff’s office to maintain 24-hour response in Coupeville. During Tuesday’s council meeting, Conard said she believed the town’s temporary See Marshal, page 8

Anticipating a difficult negotiation ahead with state regulators over their recent ban of net-pen salmon farming, the Island County Commissioners are putting high hopes on new legislation proposed in Olympia. House Bill 1599 would empower cities and counties to prohibit the siting of such facilities in their areas through provisions of longrange planning documents known as shoreline master programs. If passed, the new law would effectively end a longstanding power struggle between the state Department of Ecology, the agency mandated with reviewing, overseeing and enforcing tenets of the Shoreline Management Act, and junior governments that want more say over what activities are allowed in their areas. “We should be able to have the ability to control our own waters,” Board Chairwoman Helen Price Johnson. In December, the commissioners wrapped up years of work by approving an update to its shoreline master program. The document will guide development on and along the waterfront for the next 20 years. Among the many controversial topics discussed, net-pen salmon farming was one of the only issues that saw strong opinion but little argument. Public testimony was overwhelmingly in favor of prohibiting net-pen salmon farming from being allowed anywhere in the county. The board’s subsequent

decision to prohibit non-native fish pens altogether put it in league with Jefferson County, which has been battling it out with the department of ecology over its ban of net-pen farming for years. State Rep. Kevin Van De Wege, D-Sequim, is one of HB 1599’s primary sponsors and Jefferson County Commissioner Phil Johnson has been a key figure behind the proposed legislation. “The bottom line is they are deleterious to the environment,” Johnson said. State Rep. Norma Smith, R-Clinton, is not one of the bill’s sponsors but said Friday that she could throw her support behind the bill in its current form. “As it stands now, I think it’s a good bill, but I want to see it when it comes out of committee,” Smith said. “County’s should have the ability make their own decision,” she said. The Island County commissioners are doing what they can to ensure the bill’s passage, having unanimously approved and submitted a letter of support. According to Price Johnson, neither Island or Jefferson county’s adopted ban is a violation of state law but rather a statement of autonomy when it comes to the permitting of commercial activity. “We’re asserting our local control over our planning process,” she said. David Pater, a shoreline planner with ecology and the official reviewing the county’s plan, said the department’s position is that netpen farming can’t be banned outright because it’s a water dependent use. Limiting activities on the water to those that can’t take

place anywhere else is one of the cornerstones of the shoreline management act. Ecology has the tricky job of managing that basic tenet with other pillars of the act, such as environmental protection and access to the water. “We’re trying to manage that balance and that’s the challenge with these SMPs,” Pater said. The department has communicated several concerns to county officials about restrictions in the update that may go too far and language concerning net-pen farming is one of them. Pater said he is hopeful that the issues can be worked through cooperatively but acknowledged that the proposed legislation could alter the discussion significantly if passed. “This bill could change a lot of things,” he said. It was introduced in the Local Government Committee and a public hearing was held in Olympia Friday afternoon. Although Smith does not serve on local government, Rep. Dean Takko, D-Longview, is committee’s chairman was is a bill sponsor. Smith said Friday morning that she would be surprised if the bill didn’t make it out of committee. Should the bill die, Price Johnson said she would be “patient but persistent” and continue lobbying for the prohibition of net-pen farming in Island County. The public was “loud and clear” in its opposition to their presence anywhere around Whidbey or Camano Islands, she said. “That’s significant to me,” she said.

Orchid sale to benefit Whidbey General auxiliary It may be dreary outside, but it will be bright and colorful inside on March 4 and 5, when A.J. Florals will sell a dazzling array of orchids to benefit Whidbey General Hospital. Many varieties will be available. Most are easy to care for and will bloom for months. They’re also inexpensive – from $15 to $40. Each purchase includes written instructions on how to best care for the orchid with tips on how to keep them blooming. A portion of profits supports the Whidbey

General Hospital Auxiliary. The auxiliary raises money through the hospital gift shop and ongoing events to help purchase items to benefit patient care at Whidbey General. In 2012, these items included a cordless telemetry unit for the Whidbey Family Birthplace, 17 flat-screen digital televisions for patient care areas and a cardiac rehabilitation treadmill for the Life Center for Essential Wellness.

Low-income housing project faces septic issues By Justin Burnett Staff Reporter

A $6.3-million, lowincome housing project planned for Freeland may be derailed because of a permitting issue. Island County Housing Authority officials confirmed this week that the costs of septic system requirements may exceed initial expectations and the increase in costs may torpedo the project. “We can’t go over this budget, we just can’t,” said Teri Anania, executive director for the Housing Authority. The organization is not a department of county government, but a state special-purpose district that provides affordable housing to low-income and elderly residents. It currently owns and manages 110 public housing units on properties in Oak Harbor, Coupeville and Langley. Its newest project, Sunny Side Village, is planned on a nearly 9-acre lot off Fish Road, between Highway 525 and Scenic Avenue. Designs call for the construction of 26 units in four separate twolevel buildings. They are expected to provide housing for people who make between 30 percent and 60 percent of the area median income for Island

County — about $67,500. Rents will range from $587 to $986, depending on income. So far, the agency has spent nearly $1 million on the project, which has been in the works since 2008. It recently hit a major hiccup when county regulators realized that the effluent produced by the large development may have adverse impacts on a nearby well. Nitrate levels in the water source are already elevated. The plan to treat effluent using a series of separate septic systems won’t be enough to keep the levels from going over the brink, said Keith Higman, director of Island County Public Health. As a result, the Housing Authority is going to have to rethink its septic plans. “They have to mitigate the nitrate loading,” Higman said. There aren’t a lot of options. There’s a good chance that a water treatment plant will have to be constructed. The cost impact is unclear, but officials agree it will likely push the project over budget. Anania is hopeful an alternative can be found. If one isn’t, and a water treatment plant is required, that would put permitting under the purview of the state Department of Health, which opens the door for another problem.

“If we don’t get the permits, obviously, we’re dead in the water.” — Teri Anania The standards to be met are the same, no matter which agency is doing the permitting. Anania said a state review may result in delay and ultimately the loss of $2.5 million in funding from the Washington State Housing Trust Fund. The Department of Commerce, the agency that manages the fund, has already given the housing authority an extension once for not being shovel-ready. Anania said she doubts another would be granted. Funding for the project comes from a range of sources, including the trust fund. Of the nearly $1 million already spent, $575,000 was from two county pots: one for low-income housing and the other for homelessness. The remaining $416,000 came from Housing Authority coffers. Adding to the unexpected permitting headache, the project is now under fire from residents who are concerned about a range of issues, not the least of which relate to the potential impacts on water quality. Residents who live near the proposed development met with housing author-

ity officials recently to learn more about the project but many said they are dissatisfied with the answers they received and brought their case before the Island County Commissioners on Monday. Many complained that the surrounding roads aren’t up to the task of supporting such a large development. They lack sidewalks and are so narrow is some placed that there is barely enough room for two cars. “There’s some real problems there,” Denise Lorenz said. Others believe not enough was done to let the community know the project was being proposed. The two-week public comment period last year, which is required by law, passed by unbeknownst to most in the neighborhood. Some claimed the site is currently home to bald eagles, others questioned the high cost of the project, and still more wondered whether the location is a good fit for a low-income demographic. “I think the site is just completely inappropriate for the functions being proposed,” said Lew Randall, president of the Freeland

Advocates for Informed Responsible Solutions. According to Anania, a traffic study has been performed and a concurrency certificate issued. She also addressed the total price tag, saying “soft costs” for government projects can be considerably more pricey than those in the private sector. Soft costs are expenses not associated with construction, such as architectural, engineering and legal fees. They can also include the cost of pursuing grants or funding studies necessary for permitting. Anania said many of those who voiced concerns had “valid points” and that

it’s not the organization’s intention to propose an unsafe or environmentally irresponsible project. “We’re not in the business of being bad neighbors,” she said. The Housing Authority will do what it can to address those issues, but community concern alone won’t stop the project from moving forward, she said. The same cannot be said about the septic issues, however. While Anania said she is hopeful that a solution can be found, the future of Sunny View Village is entirely dependent on getting a permitted septic system. “If we don’t get the permits, obviously, we’re dead in the water,” Anania said.

Please treat mossy decks Editor, To the Coupeville merchants along the waterside of front street and to the Town of Coupeville, imagine my surprise when I saw my just laughing wife step over the curb and put her foot on what was assumed to be proper footing. Instead, she was slimed and took a nasty header just prior to us go to dinner at a Coupeville establishment. When she hit the slimed decking/walkway from merely putting her foot down from the street level — from the corner of my eye I saw her slam to the curb and asphalt and then splay out like a flopping salmon (Salmon have a different vocabulary for expressing themselves). Needless to say that was a hilarious start to Valentine’s dinner — trouble is she wasn’t amused. Having had shaded cedar decks in the Pacific Northwest for 28 years, pressure washing once in a while with inbetween preventative maintenance regime using a water and part Clorox mix, swept or sprayed on, will kill the moss instantly and will lessen the chance of injury to others and eliminate that condition of as a liability waiting for a victim. A short moss assessment was taken as my wife regained her composure in the car and I found it to be worse in front of the buildings along Front Street primarily at the east end. However, noticeable slime exists on the walk between buildings. The shoes she was wearing are meant for the Pacific Northwest and have tremendous soles. My wife is sure footed and aware of slimed decks – not a senior citizen with unsure feet out for a stroll, Capisci? Thank you.

Thanks for supporting CFC Editor, On behalf of over 2,700 charitable organizations that were part of the 2012-2013 Combined Federal Campaign (CFC) of Island County, I would like to thank the federal employees of Island County who participated in this year’s fund drive at Naval Air Station Whidbey Island and the U.S. Postal Services of Island County. The generous employees of NAS Whidbey and the U.S. Postal Service raised donations of over $256,000. The federal employees of Island County contributed their time, talent, and treasurer to benefit the local, national, and international charitable organizations that participated in the local CFC of Island County. Thanks to Naval Hospital Oak Harbor at NAS Whidbey for allowing Lieutenant (LT) Elyse Braxton to serve as the Loaned Executive. LT Braxton trained, coordinated, and motivated the hundreds of unit coordinators and key workers who made this year’s CFC a huge success. This year’s CFC effort would not have been possible without the year-round support and guidance of the Local Federal Coordinating Committee (LFCC) that oversees the CFC. Thanks to the federal community for giving so generously in time and money. With the help of all these individuals and donors, the CFC supported local, national, and international agencies to improve the quality of life for all.

Fundraisers set for foundation Suspect sought in espresso stand burglary By Megan Hansen Editor

The Community Foundation for Coupeville Schools is gearing up for more fundraising. The organization, which provides mini grants and scholarships, is looking to refurbish its coffers after awarding several grants this year. So far the foundation has awarded seven mini grants for special projects or programs in the classroom. “We are excited to meet their requests and share with the community what the foundation for Coupeville schools has been doing this year and some won-

derful ways that folks can continue the good work that they have helped foster at Coupeville schools,” said Diane Eelkema, vice president of the group. The awards have gone toward a fifth-grade trip to Coronet Bay, Young Authors Conference and a trip to the Washington State History Museum. Three fundraisers are in the works, including one this weekend. Coupeville restaurants will host a day where a percentage of the proceeds from the day’s sales will go to the foundation. Eat at Ciao, 701 N. Main St. anytime on Monday, Feb. 25, Front Street Grill, 20 N.W. Front Street on

Thursday, March 28 or Christopher’s, 103 N.W. Coveland St. on Tuesday, April 30. The Community Foundation for Coupeville Public Schools has provided senior scholarships, needy kids funds, extracurricular fees, and mini grants to teacher to allow them to do enriching projects that aren’t in the regular budget. “The foundation provides the vehicle for donations to the school.” Eelkema said. The foundation was started in 1997 when a local man died in the community and left money and a truck to the school district, Eelkema said. With no way to receive the funds the

foundation was started. The foundation usually gives 4-6 thousand to mini grants. Teachers with ideas for an innovations in teaching, an extensive field trip, an equipment need that is unusual or unique to a class, apply to the foundation with their request. “We evaluate the request and if the mini grant will provide” an extra measure of support” the foundation will fund all or a partial amount,” Eelkema said. They also have a needy kids fund, a senior scholarship program, and donors can contribute through the foundation to things like: History Day, Science Olympiad, drama club, jazz band etc.

Woman to help hurricane recovery By Nathan Whalen Staff Reporter

Whidbey resident Teresa Ellis left home Monday morning to help people on the East Coast recover from Hurricane Sandy. As a volunteer for the Red Cross, Ellis traveled to Princeton, N.J. where she will spend several weeks helping people relocate and find housing. Ellis, who was attending

last Sunday’s logo unveiling for the Penn Cove Water Festival, said there are thousands of people who need relocating and she will help some of those people find the right resources for help to bring some normalcy back into their lives. “They have a hard time trying to figure out how to move forward,” Ellis said adding that the Red Cross is working with other agencies for help.

Detectives with the Island County Sheriff’s Office are investigating a burglary at roadside coffee stand owned by a county official. Detective Ed Wallace said the break-in at Prairie Perks was reported by an employee who showed up for work at 5:30 a.m. Tuesday. The drive-through stand is located just outside of Coupeville town limits on Terry Road. The burglar broke windows on the drive-through and the door, then left the door standing open, Wallace said. Mary Engle, the county assessor and owner of the coffee stand, said the burglar made a big mess of broken glass, but didn’t get away with much beyond a stainless steel can of XPlosion drink mixer. The intruder also nibbled on

some cookies. The break-in didn’t stop the coffee from flowing. “It was a big mess and an unwanted expense for us, but not a huge deal,” she said, adding that they boarded up the windows and went back to work. Wallace retrieved video from the security camera from the espresso stop. He said it appears to show the burglar. He said he is still processing the video to create a clearer image; he will release a still image of the suspect this week. Wallace said the suspected burglar is a white male, about 17 to 21 years old, and dressed in a hooded sweatshirt. He cautioned that the description is still “very preliminary.” The Ebey Bowl, which is next to the coffee stand, was broken into last summer. In that case, footage from a security camera led detectives to the suspects.

Navy secretary visits Whidbey with good news By Justin Burnett Staff Reporter

Sailors at Whidbey Island Naval Air Station received welcome news last week when they learned from Secretary of the Navy Ray Mabus that their pocketbooks will not feel the sting of the automatic spending cuts that may go into effect next month. “There will be no impact on active duty personnel or their families in terms of salaries or benefits,” Mabus told reporters after delivering his message to hundreds of Whidbey sailors in a hanger on base. “But there will be impacts on the Navy, potentially big impacts,” he said. Unless lawmakers in Washington, D.C. come to agreement by March 1, sequestration along with ramifications of the continuing resolution for the 2012 budget will result in a loss of about $9 billion in Navy funding.

Globally, the Navy prepared for the fiscal strike by implementing a hiring freeze for civilian workers, terminating some temporary positions and, most recently, reducing the number of aircraft carriers in the Persian Gulf from two to one. If a resolution in Congress can’t be reached and sequestration becomes a reality, civilian workers would see about three weeks of unpaid furloughs, and scheduled repairs and maintenance on ships and aircraft will be delayed. Those cuts would impact operations at NAS Whidbey. “We will train less. We will steam less. We will fly less,” Mabus said. While he talked about the possibility of reduced operations, the secretary and his message was well received overall. Along with alleviating fears about pay, he also encouraged sailors to “take care of each other” and to “keep being the best,” Petty

OBITUARY Donald D. Milliken

October 21, 1918 ~ February 12, 2013 Don was born in Crowley, La. to James and Grace Milliken. He was preceded in death by his parents, both older brothers, Ralph and Paul, and by his loving wife of almost 62 years, Lillian (nee Mueller). He was a Presbyterian and a Free Mason. Donald is survived by his three children — Mary Jo Carlsen (John Wheeler), Jean Silk and Paul (MariePaule) - and seven grandchildren. Donald was raised in southern California and after his six years in the Army Air Force and U.S. Air Force (during and after WWII), lived in Great Falls, Montana and Seattle and on Whidbey Island, Washington. His specialty in the service was ILS (Instrument Landing System). His last years in the service were spent as S-3 (NCOIC of Plans and Training and Troop I&E) of the 1962nd AACS Squadron as a S/Sgt. Most of his civilian employment was in the fields of insurance and mortgage banking. He graduated from Chaffey Junior College, in Ontario, Calif. and attended the University of Idaho and the College of Great Falls.

GREAT PANINIS AND SOUP! Donald D. Milliken Donald’s wife, Lillian, passed away after more than 25 years of Alzheimer’s Disease. As a result, Don spent almost every day of his last years on the computer, searching the Internet for articles, studies and reports on Alzheimer’s, Dementia and caregiving. Those that he downloaded, he disseminated to many interested persons. That led to his being honored by the Alzheimer Society of Washington. He also mentored regularly at support groups. Don and Lillian especially enjoyed their trips and tours in Europe. Don will be missed and will be long-remembered for his puns and humor. At his request, there will be no funeral service, as he won’t be there.

Many active duty personnel have been living under a cloud of uncertainty, wondering how their jobs might be affected and the secretary’s “positive” message was appreciated, Banks said. “All of Sailors, Marines and civilian employees were excited to listen to and in many cases talk directly to Secretary Mabus,” said base commander Capt. Jay Johnston, in a statement emailed to the Whidbey News-Times. “It was especially important for them to hear Secretary Mabus talk about national issues that are already impacting our global operations.” “Several of our sailors were also reenlisted by Secretary Mabus which was thrilling for their family members to see,” he wrote. Banks’ wife, Petty Officer First Class Shannon Banks, was among those to receive the honor. In all, Mabus oversaw the reenlistment of

12 Whidbey Island sailors. The secretary also addressed the long-term viability of the airbase and that of Navy Region Northwest in general. The Western Pacific is currently one of the top three focuses of the Navy and assets located here are indicative that the region is on pretty solid ground. “We’re putting virtually every Growler we’ve got here,” said Mabus, speaking specifically about Whidbey. He added that the Northwest has been a terrific community, calling it one of the Navy’s great partners. “He’s always been very appreciative of the mission at Whidbey Island,” said Jim Slowik, president of the Oak Harbor Navy League. Slowik is a former Oak Harbor mayor who traveled with other city leaders to Washington, D.C. and the Pentagon several times over the past few years to communicate support for the base. His last trip, in 2011, occurred during the heat of the Libya crisis involving former dictator Muammar Gaddafi. Despite the event, Mabus and other top Navy officials took time to meet with the Oak Harbor contingent,

Slowik said. Examples like that and the secretary’s supportive comments make it clear, Slowik said, that their efforts are not in vain, that military leaders recognize, appreciate and value the community’s continued support, Slowik said. The Navy is the largest employer on Whidbey Island, employing 6,900 active duty personnel and 2,420 civilian workers — about 9,320 total — and is believed to contribute about $592 million to the economy. Mabus did acknowledge and appeared well briefed on encroachment issues at Outlying Field Coupeville as well as growing unrest among some Central Whidbey residents over jet noise at the practice air strip. Mabus emphasized the importance and value of the airfield for flight-carrier training, but also expressed optimism that a budding partnership among base and local elected officials will result in resolution. “I think we can work through these issues,” Mabus said.

FEMA money available but sheriff’s boat undecided By Jim Larsen For The Examiner

A $1 million grant from the Federal Emergency Management Agency finally came through for the Port of South Whidbey, but a mystery remains how it will all be spent. There’s enough in the FEMA grant to purchase a fire boat for South Whidbey Fire/EMS, to be moored at the port’s remodeled Langley Marina when that project is finished. But there’s also enough for an new boat for the Island County Sheriff’s Office, which was part of the original funding request. Sheriff Mark Brown was

not present at the monthly port meeting, the first since the FEMA grant was confirmed last week by Rep. Rick Larsen. But the commissioners expect him to appear at the March meeting for an update on his position. Brown is recent months has been fighting to keep a full stuff of deputies and maintain 24-hour coverage of South Whidbey, North Whidbey and Camano Island. Budget cuts and deputies nearing retirement leave him with a manpower shortage, so a new boat hasn’t topped his list of priorities. “We could get a new boat in the marina,” Brown acknowledged, but the grant

does come with the stipulation of a 25 percent local match. As originally proposed, the patrol boat would cost $140,000. “I Have two boats, I’d have to trade them in to get the 25 percent match,” Brown said. One boat sits on a trailer in Coupeville, and another at the county facility on Camano Island. “Certainly it’s not in the budget.” However, Brown said a fast new boat at the Langley Marina could cover Whidbey and Camano islands. The Sheriff Office’s limited boat patrol schedule is funded by a grant from the state Marine Safety Program, along with overtime for deputies on board.

“We may need them to fill the road,” Brown added, alluding to his deputy shortage. He’s been pushing for a sales tax increase to improve law and justice funding. “Frankly, having two boats as a match is our only funding,” he said. South Whidbey Fire/ EMS is anxious to receive its boat, Chief Rusty Palmer told the port commissioners. “We have the money to fully fund it, knowing it’s a reimbursement grant,” he said. “We are ready to go out for bid.” In the several years since the FEMA grant was first sought, the fire district has been working on designing its boat and the estimated

cost has risen from $325,000 to $425,000. Palmer said it has been designed to pump 750 gallons of water per minute on burning boats or even shoreline homes. The fire district has mapped out hundreds of shoreline homes that can not be reached by fire truck due to bad access roads, he said. In some cases, waterfront homes can be reached only by walking or boat. Palmer said a call for bids would be sent out Friday with a hoped-for completion date of Dec. 6 for the new boat. That’s about a month before the FEMA grant has to be spent. “This is very exciting, it’s something new for us,”

Palmer said. He added the port will keep its small Zodiac rescue boat that’s towed to an emergency. “It’s perfect for lake rescues,” he said. It’s still unclear if all the FEMA money can be spent. The two boats don’t add up to $1 million. Port President hopes FEMA will allow the rest to be spent on making changes to the marina to better accommodate the boats, but that’s not part of the present plan. Even the sheriff’s boat is iffy at this point. “The Sheriff’s Department will attend the March meeting,” Angie Mozer, finance director, told the commissioners. “It’s not sure they’re prepared to fund it.”

Lion publishes article on roll-drop mechanism By Ron Newberry Staff Reporter

A mechanism built by the Central Whidbey Lions Club to allow for fast scene changes at the Whidbey Playhouse is gaining far-reaching attention. Jim Rich led a Lions Club project that created a roll-drop for the Christmas

production of “Fruitcakes” at the Whidbey Playhouse in Oak Harbor. An article by Rich about the design of his motorized device was approved and appears in the February issue of Sightlines, the publication for United States Institute of Theatre Technology (USITT) members. “It was like submitting a

scientific journal,” said Rich, 72, who lives in Coupeville. Rich’s device is more light-weight and much less expensive than roll-drops used in professional theater systems. The cost for the 20-foot mechanism is about $550 compared to several thousand dollars for ones used in professional theaters.

The driving force behind the project’s design was to allow for a scene change within 15 seconds. “We did better than that,” he said. “We did it in 12.” Rich’s article includes a “how-to technical bulletin” that shows all the details of how to make the roll-drop. He said he hopes the Lions Club project will be

useful for other community theaters or high schools interested in building their own device at an affordable price. “It was just an idea I thought would be useful to share,” said Rich, who has an engineering background. “I don’t have any desire to try and build some or make any money.”

Marshal: Town exploring options, pg. 1 measures have been successful. Some of the reserve officers are former marshals and have been “warmly welcomed” back by members of the community, she said. Davenport agrees. In an interview this past Friday, he said the situation is not perfect but felt the mitigation is meeting the needs of the community and that there is no prevalent public safety risk. “It’s actually worked really well,” Davenport said. “Given that we’ve lost 75 percent of the marshal’s office, I can’t think of a better scenario,” he said.

On-call response So far, the department has been able to provide 24-hour response with just Gowdey and the reserve marshals. But it’s not a perfect system and it’s not the same as 24-hour coverage. Providing 24-hour response means an officer will respond to a 911 call made at any time of the day, seven days a week. The same is true for 24-hour coverage but the difference is in response time. Coupeville is currently

using an on-call system, meaning officers who aren’t on shift but are ready to suit up and spring into action the moment a call comes in. According to Gowdey, it generally takes them about 15 minutes to arrive. That stacks up to a response of about two minutes for officers who are already in a car and on patrol, he said. “You will get a police officer on scene,” Gowdey said. “This issue is how long will that take.” Davenport, who voiced concerns about publishing schedule specifics, confirmed that on-call officers are currently used for about 10 to 12 hours a day, four to five days out of the week. Island County sheriff’s deputies also respond to calls in Coupeville, but there is no guarantee they will respond. The department has staffing issues of its own and officers may be tied up on calls of their own. Davenport said dealing with multiple calls is a problem for all police departments of small size and limited budgets. Even when Coupeville

was fully staffed, only one officer was usually on patrol at a time. “That’s small town policing,” he said.

Uncertain future Given its shortcomings, Gowdey agrees that the system is working as a temporary stop-gap. But, as the last member of the deputy marshal’s guild – Coupeville’s police union – he has concerns about his job. If law enforcement services were contracted out, and the marshal’s office dissolved, Gowdey said it’s not uncommon for the new agency to pick up the officers from the old department. “I would fully expect it but it still makes you nervous,” he said. Conard, however, said the hired consultant could come back with any number of solutions, including options that would see the retention of the marshal’s office. For example, just administrative services might be contracted out, which would mean the department and uniforms could stay the same. “It’s done in lots of dif-

ferent ways,” Conard said. “We get to define what kinds of service we want,” she said. According to Clay, if the council does decide to dissolve the agency altogether, it wouldn’t be an unheard of step. Coupeville once had a fire department and library, but both are now served by junior taxing districts per a public vote. Also, other small towns and cities struggling to maintain existing and historical services have decided to pursue similar alternatives in the face of limited funding. “We are not reinventing the wheel,” Clay said. “There are plenty of other municipalities who have already done this. Davenport, whose job may also be uncertain, said he believed they are one of just two marshal’s offices left in the state. Only towns of a certain size are allowed to have them; cities have police departments. Dissolving the office may turn out to be the necessary choice, but it would still be difficult decision. “If it’s the route we go, it’s sad,” he said.

Port looks to tweek Greenbank zoning By Nathan Whalen Staff Reporter

Months after hashing out a conservation easement to protect the Greenbank Farm, leaders from the Port of Coupeville are filing paperwork to alter the zoning of the farm to better match the conservation easement. The Port of Coupeville held a special meeting to file an amendment to alter the publicly owned farm’s Special Review District zoning to better match the changes made when the conservation easement was approved. Jim Patton, executive director for the Port of Coupeville, noted that the change will place an addition .4 acres of property into commercial use. That property will make for a better footprint should the Port find the money to construct a new building in the farm’s commercial area. The commissioners for the Port of Coupeville and Island County commissioners approved a conservation easement in December 2012 that protects the agriculture, recreation and environmentally sensitive lands from development. In addition, port commissioners agreed to surrender the development rights on two strips of commercial property located on either side of Wonn Road. For surrendering the development rights on most of the property at the farm, the Port of Coupeville received $335,000

in Conservation Futures Funds from Island County. A Special Review District is a designation the county uses for areas that don’t fit under other zoning regulations. The review district spells out the rules that land on such a property is used. In addition to the Greenbank Farm, the Pacific Rim Institute for Environmental Studies near Coupeville, which was formally the Au Sable Institute, is the only other property in Island County to have the Special Review District zoning. If an entity wants to change the regulations of the review district, officials have to file a comprehensive plan amendment with Island County and go through a process that will take most of the year to complete. The Port of Coupeville will have to pay $5,660 to file the amendment. An audience member attending the meeting that was held in barn A at the Greenbank Farm questioned whether there will be an opportunity for public comment on the proposal. Patton said public comment opportunities are part of the county’s approval process. “We’re now on the same road as everybody else to change county code,” Patton said of the other amendments that might be under consideration this year with the county.

Science students prep for Olympiad Community night offers public chance to view entries By Nathan Whalen Staff Reporter

A small group of student scientists at Coupeville High School are busy seeing how they measure up with their contemporaries across the region. The students, members of Coupeville’s Science Olympiad, are busy rebuilding vehicles, tweaking experiments, and memorizing equations to perform better in an upcoming regional competition scheduled in March. Before that, however, residents and parents can see their projects and experiments during a community night scheduled 5:30 p.m. Wednesday Feb. 27, at the Coupeville Middle School and High School Commons. Coupeville High School science teacher Dan d’Almeida said Science Olympiad offers a variety of activities that are “in-line with what’s going on in society.” The competition provides a “higher opportunity” for students interested in science and engineering, d’Almeida said. Science Olympiad helps students refine their skills before going on to college.

Eighteen students compete in Science Olympiad and they are updating their projects after competing in an invitational that was held recently at Aviation High School in Des Moines. They placed 10th out of 22 teams. Students Kelsey Pape and Briess Potter are tackling a gravity project, which entails building a vehicle that rolls down a near-vertical ramp and then has to stop within a specified spot. They are rebuilding their machines after their sixth-place performance at the invitational. “I did it last year and I spent so much time on it,” Potter said. “As a senior, it would be so cool to win it.” Pape and Potter were busy installing roller blade wheels to their vehicle in hopes of improving their performance. The wheels had rubber bands wrapped around them for friction. Sophomore Geoff McClarin and freshman Dawson d’Almeida were busy during a recent visit fine tuning their Maglev project where a tiny vehicle levitates over a track and is powered by fans. Junior Brandon Kelly is using yak hair for a thermodynamics project to control the temperature of water. Several students — Manuel Lopez-Santillana, Jared

Youth basketball clinics prepare future Wolves By Jim Waller Staff reporter

You don’t need a crystal ball to glimpse into the future of Coupeville High School basketball. Just stop by the middle school gym on Thursday evenings or Saturday mornings. A record number of kids, over 100, are participating in the Boys and Girls Club youth program this season. This winter the players have been offered something new, a clinic every Thursday evening from 5:30 to 7 p.m. Led by Bob Martin and a slew of volunteers, children from kindergarten through the fifth grade are treated to a weekly session of fun and fundamentals. The clinics, which began Jan. 17 and will run 11 weeks, attract about 40 kids each week.

Martin said, “My hopes are to teach the basics to the younger players so they can build their knowledge of basketball and are more prepared when they enter middle school.” One of the reasons he started the clinics, Martin said, was to help out the highschool players who double as youth-league coaches. Because of their own commitment to basketball, they couldn’t practice with their youth teams during the week. In addition, the clinics are about building basic skills, increasing basketball knowledge and staying fit, as well as introducing the kids to their future coaches and P.E. teachers and volunteers from the community, Martin said. Each week Martin tries to incorporate different volunteers, including members of the high-school and middle-

school teams; boys varsity coach Anthony Smith; Willie, Sheri and James Smith; and middle school coaches Sara Stuurmans and Brett Smedley. Martin called the highschool and middle-school players coaching the younger kids a “win-win type of environment.” He added, “The highschool students have made this program a huge success. They have attended practices, games, clinics, and school, and most have managed to stay on top of their homework. They have many skills to teach the younger kids. The kids look up to the kids.” Others, Martin said, are also instrumental in the success of the program. Eileen Stone, director of the Boys and Girls Club, is vital and often works behind the scenes, not asking for recognition, and Ryan King, the gym supervisor, is a key asset. Martin said the program has been blessed with the help of volunteers and it could use some help funding equipment and uniforms. He said, “We have over 100 players and 14 teams, our basketballs need replacing and we could use uniforms that can be re-used from season to season.” The program uses 40 basketballs ($20 to $30 each) and needs eight uniforms per its 14 teams ($20 to $30 each). Among the volunteers who help are Pat Kelley, Greg White, Scott Stuurmans, Madeline Strasburg, Katie Kiel, Bree Messner, Caleb Valko, Wiley Hesselgrave, Britney Korzan, Rhiannon Ellsworth, Kacie Kiel, Aaron Burdge, Kylie Burdge, Joel Walstad, Hailey Hammer, Makana Stone, CJ Roberts, Aaron Trumbull, Nick Streubel, Jai’Lysa Hoskins, Julia Felici, Bethany Walstad, Haley Marx, Lauren Escalle, Amanda Fabrizi, Dalton Martin, Cole Payne and Oscar Liquidano.
