Drinks and a show: WICA seeks full liquor license School leader expresses doubts, concerns about serving hard liquor By BEN WATANABE Staff reporter

LANGLEY — Have a glass of wine, or perhaps a martini, with that play. Hard liquor may come to Whidbey Island Center for the Arts. The nonprofit arts group is applying for a full liquor license. First, it needs the permission of the South Whidbey School District and the Langley City Council. Before WICA can make some bucks from booze, its leaders will make their case to the school board Feb. 28. “It’s a secondary benefit rather than a primary benefit,” said Stacie Burgua, WICA’s executive director. “It’s an added enjoyment for our patrons.” Serving alcohol, especially hard liquor, gave the board pause, however. Liability and insurance concerns led the board to check with their attorney, Jennifer Divine of Miller Nash. And though she cleared many of the legal issues, School Board Chairman Steve Scoles said he has questions for WICA. “The hard liquor, we’re not comfortable with,” Scoles said. “It’s just another level of adult drinking. Beer and wine are generally associated with a social occasion … If you’re serving martinis and margaritas, it raises the stakes in terms of how much alcohol people are consuming at the site.” Limiting WICA’s license to beer and wine and excluding spirits was one option the board could pursue. Making bank from selling beer and wine was far from a triple-fold investment for the theater. Last year, WICA sold $1,581 worth of beer and wine. Of that total, $400 was spent on the booze and $600 for liquor licenses at events like DjangoFest See Liquor, A6

Mystic Sea whale watcher arrives Friday in Langley By JIM LARSEN Record editor Friday afternoon, the 100-foot long M/V Mystic Sea will carefully moor at Langley Marina for a twomonth stay that should bring plenty of new tourists to Langley anxious to take the boat out to view gray whales. The whales have been reported near Langley for several weeks now, so the time is ripe for the Mystic Sea’s arrival. “I heard they were off the bluff and looking good,” boat owner Monte Hughes said Tuesday. For the past 22 years, the Mystic Sea, based in Anacortes, has done most of its Puget Sound whale watching out of LaConner and Coupeville. “We’ve been trying to come to

Langley for over 10 years with the idea they’d have a dock,” Hughes said with a chuckle. Langley’s long-awaited marina expansion has just gone out for bid, but nevertheless the marina is ready for the Mystic Sea, according to Ed Field, operations manager. Field said the 120-foot long “C Dock” has been cleared for the Mystic Sea’s arrival. “We’ve been working with Monte (Hughes) on procedures for bringing the boat in and out, making sure there’s no interfering with other boats,” he said, adding that will be easier at high tide than low tide. Hughes said the Mystic Sea is expected to arrive in Langley between 1 and 2 p.m. Friday. The port also received an extension from a state agency to allow a longer period for commercial ves-

The MV/Mystic Sea will arrive in Langley Friday, March 1, to prepare for whale watching excursions beginning Saturday, March 8. The boat is expected to bring more revenue to Langley merchants as well as the Port of South Whidbey. sels to use the marina. Traditionally, it is been turned over exclusively to transient pleasure boats beginning

in April. Field said an extension to the end of April has been approved for the Mystic Sea, giving Hughes

the time he needs for his whale watching tours. The large boat will bring in extra money for the port, paying $850 a month in moorage plus $1 a head for each passenger. Beginning Saturday, March 8, and continuing through April 29, the M/V Mystic Sea will be offering gray whale watching cruises lasting 2 ½ to 3 hours out of the Langley Marina. The vessel will return to its homeport of Anacortes on May 1 for the orca, humpback, and minke whale watching season. Hughes predicts plenty of demand for his service and a boost to the city’s economy. “Visitors from near and far will have plenty of time after returning from their gray whale cruise to explore Langley … relax, shop, dine, and stay the night in the beautiful Village by the Sea,” he said.

“Now that we’re blessed with the new shop, it’s time to do some good work,” said Sharley Lewis, owner of Island Fabric & Sewing Center in Freeland, which she opened with partner Kris Schricker in 2012. Lewis is excited about the Quilts of Valor project the store is sponsoring to make lap quilts for veterans. “Anyone who would like to make a quilt for a combat veteran can do so now as part of a new program called ‘Under Our Wings,’ that pairs experienced quilters with kit-buyers in a one-day workshop,” said Lewis. The first “Under Our Wings” workshop will be from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. Saturday, March 9, at Island Fabric & Sewing Center at 1592 Main St. in Freeland. “It’s easy to participate, even if you don’t know how to make a quilt,” said Lewis. “We need individuals to buy a kit for a lap-size quilt and bring it to the workshop on March 9. A ‘coach’ will do the cutting, pinning, pressing and will help the ‘rookie’ sew simple patchwork blocks for the quilt top.” “The quilts will then go to a quilter with a long-arm machine for the quilting, then returned to the shop for binding,” said Lewis. Coaches will help the quilters finish the quilts, which includes a label and a presentation pillowcase. For those who want to buy a kit to support a veteran but do not want to do the sewing, volunteers will be available to sew the chosen quilt. Lewis learned of the Quilts of Valor program through watching a special TV presentation on PBS last year. She was so impressed with the idea that she watched the program four times. “After watching the program, I said to myself that we’re going to do this when we open the new

The Quilts of Valor Foundation has made quilts for American armed service members touched by war since 2003, so far presenting some 34,000 quilts to wounded warriors including combat veterans from conflicts in Iraq and Afghanistan as well as from World War II, the Korean War and the Vietnam War.

Former EDC assistant accused Sexual of embezzling over $30,000 health By JESSIE STENSLAND Staff reporter The former assistant director of the Island County Economic Development Council is accused of embezzling more than $30,000 from the agency, court documents state. Prosecutors charged 58-year-old Sharleen Eller in Island County Superior Court Feb. 13 with theft in the first degree, a crime described in court papers as to “embezzle currency via scheme.” Eller could face up to 90 days in jail if convicted. Eller was previously a Coupeville resident, but has since moved, according to the prosecutor’s office. She was summoned to appear in court March 4. Deputy Prosecutor David Carman said the alleged theft took more than three years to investigate and went through several investigators over that time. “In a financial case like this, there were a lot, and I mean a lot, of records that needed to be gone through,” he said. The alleged theft was discovered in September of 2009 after Sharon Hart, the former director of the EDC, hired an outside bookkeeping service. The bookkeeper found that Eller wrote extra payroll checks to herself, according

The Tokitae, Washington state’s newest ferry, sits 14 feet high at Nichols Brothers Boat Builders, ready to be loaded onto a barge later this week. Weighing 2.5 million pounds, it will be the largest item ever placed on a barge by the Freeland company.

FERRIES Tokitae nearly ready for barge The huge superstructure of the Tokitae, Washington State Ferries’ newest boat, will leave Nichols Brothers Boat Builders later this week. It was designed to carry 144 vehicles. Matt Nichols, CEO of the Freeland company, said Monday he expects the structure will be placed on a barge in an operation that might span two days, Thursday and Friday. Nichols Bros. has launched a lot of boats, but Matt Nichols said this will be the largest piece of work ever placed on a barge. The delicate task requires just the right tidal and weather conditions. It could be completed Friday, he said, emphasizing that a number of factors could still change the timing. Initially, plans were to get the job done Tuesday. The superstructure weighs approximately 2.5 million pounds. It will be towed to Seattle where the prime contractor, Vigor Shipyard, will join it to the hull and deck.

The South Whidbey School District’s governing council will gather from noon to 6 p.m. Wednesday, Feb. 27 at its conference room. On the school board’s agenda is a self assessment, looking at an alternative board room and an update on the district’s pre-kindergarten through third grade program. Following a short break, the board will regroup for

its business meeting at 6:30 p.m. Both meetings will be at the South Whidbey Primary Campus, located at 5476 Maxwelton Road, Langley.

FREELAND Beach donation approved The Robinson family beach donation deal is sealed. Earlier this month, the Island County commissioners unanimously agreed to accept the property, which includes about 300 feet of waterfront adjacent to the public boat launch in Mutiny Bay. The decision was made following the recommendation of Bill Oakes, director of Island County Public Works. Aside from it being waterfront land, its proximity to a boat launch and a public parking area make it ideal for public ownership, Oakes said. Previously discussed partnerships with the Port of South Whidbey and the South Whidbey Parks and Recreation District to manage the property have not moved forward. But two community groups are interested in keeping the park clean and maintained. The property was donated by Frank Robinson, founder of Robinson Helicopter Company.

In our opinion

Pardon their sequestration Our country is teetering on the cliff of sequestration, which if it weren’t for Congress we wouldn’t even know existed. We go to bed with many concerns each night related to income, family, jobs and what might be hiding under the bed. But sequestration is one thing we have never feared, because it’s a word we never knew. Congress gave us this fear. It means the budget will be automatically cut by 2.5 percent over a number of years if nobody does anything about it. This is the slowest drop off a cliff ever devised by mankind, defying Newton’s law of gravity. Had Congress dropped the apple from the tree, Newton would have had to wait approximately four years for it to hit him in the head. He would have long since gone home for dinner and today we would have no law of gravity. Sequestration was devised to scare the people, but it’s not working. The people have survived one fiscal cliff after another, and now we’re unafraid of fiscal cliffs, even if the new name is sequestration. Congress people are sounding the alarm to any TV newsperson from the 314 available channels just so they can get some free air time. When coming up with the idea of sequestration a year ago, Congress, egged on by President Obama, made sure that nothing serious would be cut if it actually takes effect. So rest assured that neither Congress nor the president will lose any pay or benefits. Instead, it will be kids who need help reading and civilian working stiffs on military bases. Congress and the president, in fact, had to interrupt long vacations to hurry back to Washington, D.C., to sound the alarm about sequestration. Tiger Woods was left alone in the bunker on the 17th hole, wondering what happened. We should not fear sequestration because it’s just another balloon filled with hot air from the gasbags in Congress. They’re trying to get some attention and make themselves feel important. They don’t regulate the money supply any more, wars are continually undertaken without their declaration, and all they have left to do is balance the budget. They always make a drama of this just to keep themselves one step above street beggars and journalists in the public approval ratings. Sequestration? Go for it, Congress. We can all use another good laugh.

Persistence pays off for South Whidbey’s four-year wrestlers Senior Moments: Leaders fought for return to the Dome

all the talks and yelling and the care we have all received and enjoyed through all these years.

“I don’t have a standout match. I look it at as a standout season.”

By BEN WATANABE Staff reporter

Returning to the Tacoma Dome was South Whidbey’s goal all season. The Falcon wrestlers’ aim began last year after they missed out on the state 2A tournament. And this squad’s seniors were determined to make that a reality. On the broad shoulders of Pat Monell, South Whidbey made its way back to the Mat Classic. Monell finished in sixth place among 1A wrestlers in the 220-pound division. Fellow Falcon senior Jake Leonard (170 pounds) helped the team finish 3-2 against Cascade Conference teams, one of its best finishes in the past three years. Along the way, South Whidbey dropped power programs like Granite Falls and Cedarcrest. Here, the two four-year Falcon wrestlers reflect on their final season and the future of wrestling.

What kept you in wrestling, through all the weight plans and injuries? Monell: What kept me wrestling was the fact that it was my senior year and for the love of the sport.

With the recent decision that the Olympics will ditch wrestling, why will wrestling endure or fade? Monell: I think that wrestling will endure even though they took the sport out of the Olympics. I say this due to the fact that the numbers of wrestling seem to be rising in both men’s and women’s wrestling. Leonard: Even with the Olympics dropping wrestling, we all know as players that it is one of the hardest sports, and I think they will bring it back soon enough. Describe your Falcon wrestling career in four words: Monell: My career in four words is: I loved every minute! Leonard: In my career the way I can explain wrestling is it’s tough; and the support and love we all received, it’s a one-of-akind experience no matter what people say. I have done other sports and nothing even compares to the difficulty I have had.

Admonitions for cooking the ‘other white meat’

WHIDBEY RECIPES

Margaret Walton

Pigs have suffered from a bad reputation probably from the time they first got tangled up with cavemen. At that time, of course, they were wild boars with ferocious tusks and a lot of hair, and no doubt deserved their fierce depictions on cave walls. Most of the pigs we encounter these days, however, are pretty in pink; roly poly creatures intent for the most part on eating and sleeping. But, they still have bad reputations. How often did your mother say to you, “Clean up that room; it looks like a pig sty.” Or, “Slow down, you’re eating

like a pig.” “He’s a real pig,” some girl might say to another, and some guy might tell his buddy, “Dude, that gal’s a real pig.” For a brief period of time, even policemen were derogatorily referred to as “pigs.” We were told about trichinosis and the danger of eating undercooked pork and it was decidedly not one of the more favored items in the meat counter. All that changed, albeit slowly, when improvements in the meat producing and packing processes eliminated the fear of trichinosis, and health concerns about eating too much “red meat” turned our attention to “the other white meat.” Pork gradually became the meat of the hour, popular with grocery shoppers, and some folks even turned piggies into pets, keeping miniaturized versions in their back yards. Well, wouldn’t you know that’s about to change again, thanks to recently published, alarming reports about dangerous bacteria and drugs found to be widespread in a large number of pork samples tested in the

laboratories of Consumer Reports. Yersinia enterocolitica (even the name sounds dangerous), a bacterium that can cause fever, diarrhea and intestinal pain, was one of the menaces found in 69 percent of the samples, along with lesser amounts of the better known salmonella, and varying levels of antibiotics. I hadn’t realized that antibiotics are currently routinely fed to hogs to promote growth and leanness, a practice approved in this country but banned in China and European Union countries. I also learned that “no hormones added” printed on the label of a package of pork is a worthless claim because hormones aren’t allowed at all in any pork produced for consumption in this country. The phrase probably makes us feel better about our meat, however. There isn’t room here to go into detail about the various unpleasant elements these tests found in pork, especially ground pork, but the end result is we’re back with the usual admonitions. Keep uncooked pork away from other foods and wipe

and sanitize any surfaces on which the pork has lain; wash your hands after handling raw pork; use a meat thermometer when cooking pork to ensure an internal temperature that kills bacteria (145 degrees for whole pork, 165 degrees for ground pork); read labels carefully and try to find those that certify the pig was raised without antibiotics. (Whole Foods, by the way, carries only pork that uses neither antibiotics nor the growth drug ractopamine). As I said, pigs have always had trouble getting any respect, but now their reputation is, once again, soiled. RECIPES: Do you recall when pork was rich and juicy, full of flavor (and often a lot of fat)? When pork producers aimed at making pork a leaner, healthier, less fatty meat, they unfortunately gave us pork that too often turns out dry and bland when cooked. Brining is often recommended to retain both moisture and flavor, as is marinating. And as we all know, long slow cooking

with lots of barbecue sauce also works, very well. One of my favorite cuts of pork is the tenderloin, primarily because it’s tender and juicy and easy to cook, compared to pork loin, which can dry out in a flash, and also because there are many delicious things you can turn a tenderloin into, such as these quick and easy pork medallions.

medallions to a plate, season with pepper and tent with foil to keep warm. Simmer liquids in pan until reduced to ½ cup, about 8-10 min. Spoon sauce over pork and serve immediately. Serves 6. Another flavorful, impressive but easy way to use your pork tenderloin is this knockout dinner party dish.

Stephen Spielwords, portrayed by Wayne Furber, was revealed as the murderous movie maker at Langley’s Mystery Weekend.

By MICHAELA MARX WHEATLEY Staff reporter A fictitious murder on the set of a fictitious movie had Langley’s streets abuzz this weekend. Hundreds came out to unravel the mystery surrounding the untimely demise of movie producer Samuel Goldfin Myser. Locals and visitors alike sleuthed through the streets of Langley to solve Langley’s latest fictitious case of murder and enjoyed a day shopping, eating and exploring Langley. “I think I know who did it,” said Jennifer Amherst, who had come from Seattle with a group of friends. “This is so much fun. The actors are super and they have paid so much attention to detail.” The weather cooperated as well and Langley remained mostly dry while it rained elsewhere throughout the weekend, which certainly favored the many detectives who tried to break the case. It was one of the most successful mystery weekends in recent years. Langley Chamber of Commerce board President Mary Ann Mansfield said attendance was up by far. “The information that I have is that the sales (of game books) at the end of Saturday exceeded all the sales from both days last year,” she said. The blue mystery weekend

Judy Farland, one of the prime suspects, played by Joann Lechner, answers questions from two amateur detectives as she wanders Second Street after the murder.

Annie Horton, in character as Nel Odrama, shares what she knows about the murder with visitors.

It all started with the discovery of a gruesome murder in the quaint Village by the Sea. Movie producer, Samuel Goldfin Myser, lay slain in Langley Saturday morning. He had plans to make a movie in Langley — the revival of his favorite movie form, the rollicking western musical. Myser had heard about plans to produce a full-length movie musical based on the history of Langley’s first all-woman city government. In order to get as much (free) publicity for the movie as possible, he decided to hold auditions for the movie in Langley during the town’s centennial year.

Under suspicion was the motley group of semi-famous wannabes, desperate has-beens, enthusiastic locals, and beleaguered production members who had converged on the tiny seaside town for cast auditions. On Sunday the mystery was solved. As a result of an intensive investigation by Detective I.B. Fuzz and the work of Langley Coroner Gus Gruesome, it was determined that only one could be the killer. Early into the investigation the detective determined that several people had both the opportunity and motive to murder Myser. But soon the veteran

T-shirt that the chamber produced for the event was a popular souvenir. “Mystery weekend T-shirt and sweatshirt sales were wonderful,” Mansfield said. “We only have a few of each left in stock.” Not only the organizers at the chamber had a good weekend. Mansfield said business was up for many downtown core merchants as well. “I was working at Music for the Eyes on Saturday and business was wall to wall all day,” she said. “I only hope that the other merchants had such a good day. People were buying, not just running in for clues.”

crime solvers eliminated several suspects. Both Titus Kanbea and Stephen Spielswords left under suspicion. Both were sick of working with Myser, whom Stephen suspected of embezzling money from the movie budget, and Titus called an impossible tyrant. When the results of the DNA tests came back from Coupeville Scientific, the detective saw that Myser’s blood was found on the man’s watch near his body. Since Myser only wore jewelry of yellow gold, detectives knew the watch was not his. Detective Fuzz thought she would need to send operatives out to determine who owned that watch until she read further in the lab report and discovered that the skin tissue under Myser’s fingernail belonged to Spielswords. Stephen Spielswords was not only sick of working for Myser he also suspected he was moving money from the movie budget to his personal bank account, endangering the success of the production. The final straw came when he learned that Myser had been the Terra Preda International banker and Wall Street mortgage derivatives trader who was responsible for Spielswords’ elderly parents losing their home to foreclosure. And that spelled the end to the great producer. It was the 29th mystery solved in Langley.

PLAN AHEAD! Once the decision has been made to buy a new home, the first step is setting a goal. What style of home is preferred? How soon will the purchase be made? How old should the home be? How large is the right size? What amenities should the home offer? Get the picture? If a home buyer doesn’t have a clear picture of the right home before beginning the search, it is highly unlikely that a purchase will result. As someone once said, “If you don’t know where you’re going, you’ll probably end up somewhere... else.” The wise home buyer will also determine his or her financial limits before beginning a home search. Imagine finding the perfect home, then being informed that you do not qualify to buy it. Visit a mortgage lender first, get a loan commitment, then make your buying decision with confidence that the home you select will be yours.

Locavores choose seasonal meals By Betty Freeman

The locavore movement is gaining momentum on Whidbey Island, fueled by foodies who love the local farmers and want fresh homegrown food. Locavores are people who pay close attention to where their food comes from and

make a commitment to eating local foods whenever possible. It doesn’t have to be an all-or-nothing adventure. Most locavores try to eat foods grown or raised within a 100mile radius of their homes. It means that when they’re tempted by those big, red straw-

berries at the supermarket in January, they take the time to think about how far those strawberries have to travel to get to the table, or how much fossil fuel was used to get them to the market. Instead of buying them in January, think about the luscious local strawberries, kissed by Northwest rain, that will be ready for eating next June, fresh from a local farm. “All foods in their proper season” is the locavore’s mantra. Here on Whidbey Island, with the mild marine climate good for growing vegetables and fruit, an abundance of farms and farmers markets and local seafood readily available, being a locavore is a pleasure. Here are some ways to focus on eating locally: • Visit farmers markets every week. Get to know the growers, ask questions and learn how to use their

products in new ways through chef demonstrations or collecting recipes. On Whidbey Island, there are several farmers markets to choose from in spring, summer and fall. Three-Sisters Farm in Oak Harbor and Bayview Market also offer indoor markets in November and December. The Oak Harbor Public Market opens in June and runs through September on Thursday afternoons. The new market in Clinton is open Thursday evenings in July and August. Langley offers a Farmers Market on summer Friday afternoons. The Coupeville and Bayview Farmers Markets are open April to October on Saturdays. Tilth Market on South Whidbey and the Greenbank Farm Market are open Sundays. • Ask about local foods offered at the

supermarket and when eating in Island restaurants. Let your servers know that you appreciate locally grown and raised meats, seafood, cheeses, vegetables and fruits. Patronize businesses that support local farmers. • Find a local Community Supported Agriculture (CSA) farm and sign up for weekly deliveries of fresh vegetables and other farm products. Go to whidbeyisland farmandfoodnews. blogspot.com for listings of local food events and a chart featuring CSA farms on the Island. • Join the Slow Food Whidbey Island (SFWI) group, which meets at Deer Lagoon Grange. SFWI sponsors the Taste of Whidbey, an annual event bringing together nearby farmers, chefs, vintners, brewers and eaters to sample the bounty of Whidbey Island. They also publish a quarterly

newsletter “Whidbey Nibbles,” and sponsor themed potluck tables, as well as lectures and field trips. Ask for more info at SFWIFeedback@ whidbey.com. • Grow your own vegetables and fruit, and learn how to preserve your garden’s bounty by canning or freezing. Buy veggie starts or seeds from local growers at farmers markets and garden centers, or talk to the experts at the annual Whidbey Island Garden Workshop on Saturday, March 9 in Oak Harbor. For information go to county. wsu.edu/island/ gardening • Become a label reader. Since most food travels an average of 1,500 miles to reach you, local food has a much lower impact on our environment. By selecting foods that come from this region, you’ll get the freshest, healthiest and most flavorful products of every season.

Clinton neighbors go whole hog By Betty Freeman

It was Super Bowl Sunday, but two families in Clinton had another game plan that day. Doug and Betsy Hofius and their neighbors Carol Flax and Ed Fickbohm spent Super Bowl Sunday making two kinds of pork sausage from pigs raised on the Hofius farm. Hofius raised three pigs last season, bought last June as weaners from a Freeland family. Two little girls from that family gave them names: Ginger, Pepper and Jellybean. The pigs had a good life on the Hofius farm, eating organic feed and prep scraps from the Braeburn Restaurant in Langley. “They eat what we eat, but they’re not as picky,” said Hofius. The pigs could be safely moved around the fields using a pig tractor, and, in turn, they helped plow land with their natural rooting instinct. “They dug up our nettle roots for us as well as fertilizing our fields for the sheep and chickens,” said Doug Hofius. When killing time came in January, Hofius hired Vashon resident Brandon Heard of Farmstead Meatsmith, who practices traditional methods of slaughter, butchery and charcuterie, the branch of cooking devoted to prepared meat products, such as bacon, ham, sausage, terrines, galantines, pâtés and confit, primarily from pork. On Heard’s website farmstead meatsmith.com, he writes: “We specialize in educating farmers in the preparation of their animals for full culinary use, from grass to butcher block to table.” Doug Hofius shares Heard’s philosophy of offering gratitude to the animal for the sacrifice of their lives to provide food for families. “When we moved to Whidbey nine years ago, I wanted to raise our own food,” said Hofius. “So the point of what we’re doing making sausage today is that we’ve put in the time and effort to raise these animals well, and by using all their parts, we’re honoring their sacrifice.” Neighbors Flax and Fickbohm

raise beef cattle on nearby acreage, and together the two families purchased a quality meat grinder. The couples shared the meat from one pig this year. They’ve made sausage together before, but this was the first time they’d tried mortadella and liverwurst, made from recipes Doug gleaned from the Internet. The Hofius family has made sausage for the past five years. “Every year there’s something new to try,” said Doug. “We’ve gotten better at it every year. You’ve got to get the fat content just right, because fat adds flavor and juice to the sausage. It’s an art, not an exact science.” Making mortadella di Bologna carries on the tradition of Italian pig farmers for whom nothing edible on the pig is wasted. Finely ground pork is mixed with high quality diced fat (usually from the throat), and for this recipe, pistachio nuts were added, along with a blend of kosher salt, freshly ground peppercorns, cinnamon,

garlic, mace, coriander and cayenne. Using both the meat grinder and a food processor, the meat and fat is finely ground before adding the spices and pistachios. During grinding, the meat tends to warm up, so while the spices are measured, the ground meat is cooled in the refrigerator. Spices are mixed in a jar with ice water and incorporated into the meat by hand. The mixture is then stuffed into a beef or pork casing, tied off and slowly poached according to weight. After cooking, the mortadella is cooled to stabilize the sausage and give it firmness. To make liverwurst, the couples used fresh pork liver and heart, as well as ground pork shoulder, finely chopped red onion and spices. They ground the meat twice, and then made it paste-like using the food processor. Again, spices were worked in

by hand and the mixture chilled between steps. “It’s really important to keep the meat cold,” said Fickbohm. Hofius agreed. “The idea is to mix cold meat and fat together so it emulsifies, like mayonnaise,” he said. To make sure the spices are in the proper proportions, it helps to cook and taste a sample of the sausage before stuffing the casings. They purchased beef casings from a butcher’s supply house. A simple, hand-cranked sausage-stuffing machine made quick work of stuffing the casings for both types of sausage. Both families are relative newcomers to farming, and have learned through hands-on experience. Betsy and Doug Hofius have raised pigs, sheep, chickens, turkeys and bees on their 12.5 acres, as well as keeping up a vegetable garden and orchard. Fickbohm and Flax raise beef cattle and chickens and also have an orchard and veggie garden. It’s a great neighborhood for sharing food and the labor it takes to produce and preserve it. In the summer, Doug celebrates his birthday with a pig barbecue. Other neighbors, Sara and Marty Benum, host a Zucchini Fest in honor of the ubiquitous vegetable, with a sculpture contest, relay games, music and wacky prizes. The Hofius pigs benefit from the zucchini used for games and sculptures after the party, so nothing is wasted. In the fall, neighbors get together at the Hofius’ farm to make apple cider, and also gather for pumpkin carving. “We all eat pretty well here,” said Flax. She said she enjoys the communal sharing of work with friends as well as the delicious output from their neighborhood. So does Betsy Hofius, plus she’s pleased that growing and preserving food makes Doug so happy. “I like learning and I like food,” said Doug Hofius. “Our lives should be about learning something new each day.”

Families make baking a family affair By Betty Freeman Is there anything more enticing than the smell of freshly baked bread? Recently, I went on a quest to find out what’s baking at three storefront bakeries on Whidbey Island. When I visited P.S. Suisse Bakery in Langley, I was specifically looking for fresh bread to serve with soup. Their small baguettes were the perfect size for a twoperson dinner and had a fresh, yeasty taste, fine crumb and easyto-chew crust. Plus the price, $1.25 each, was a pleasant surprise for fresh European-style bread. In addition to bread, P.S. Suisse’s owners, Sandi and Peter Boden, serve up elegant Swiss pastries, chocolates, lunch specials, sandwiches, soups, salads,

espresso and tea – all created in their corner shop, tucked away in Langley Village on Second Street. The Boden’s opened their bakery in 1997. They’re open Wednesday through Saturday, from 9:30 to 5 p.m. For lunch, try the fresh daily soups or bratwurst and homemade sauerkraut. Finish with an exquisite Swiss pastry. In Coupeville, Brett’s Breads is a welcome new addition to the year-round food scene. Brett Rebischke-Smith opened his storefront Dec. 1, 2012, in a small house at 606 N. Main St. He got his start in Coupeville selling his baked goods at the Coupeville Farmers Market. “The farmers market made us,” said Rebischke-Smith. “Not only were we successful selling bread, but

we had great family times there and made a lot of friends.” Gail and Brett Rebischke-Smith have two children, Marenna, 11, and Ricky, 9, who often help out in the bakery after school and on weekends. Best sellers at Brett’s Breads include his great Aunt Thelma’s unique challah, Amish white bread, and cinnamon rolls slathered with rich cream cheese icing. Lately, Brett has been experimenting with making French bread. “I’ve been learning and experimenting as I go,” said RebischkeSmith. He uses local ingredients in season whenever he can, such as blueberries from Hunter’s Moon Farm and Five Acre Farm, and raspberries from Milepost 19 Farm. He

also features jams and syrups from Mile Post 19. Brett’s Breads is open Tuesdays through Saturdays, 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. As a stay-at-home dad, Brett gets to the bakery about 9 a.m. so early afternoon is the best time to find that day’s fresh baking. Another familyowned and operated bakery opened in Oak Harbor last July. Kakie’s Bakery & Deli is owned by two sisters, Dianne Varshock and Karen Hossfeld. Karen’s daughter Dianne makes breads and pastries and her other daughter Carmen specializes in cookies and muffins. Karen’s nickname as a child was “Kakie,” hence the name of their family bakery. “Karen always wanted to have a bakery since she went to culinary school,” said

Varshock, who moved to Oak Harbor last year from San Diego to join her sister in the new business venture. In addition to donuts, maple bars, cookies and cakes, the full-service bakery offers New York style bagels that are “like a soft pretzel,” said Varshock. They come in a host of flavors ranging from jalapeno cheese to cinnamon raisin. Every day of the week has its bread specialty. Tuesdays and Saturdays, customers can find fresh sourdough breads. On Wednesdays, try the cheese bread, and on Thursdays, sample the white or wheat breads. On Friday, experience the special recipe Jewish Rye bread. Saturdays also feature Sweet Orange bread made with orange juice and zest. On Thursdays,

the bakery offers gluten-free breads and donuts. Aside from using seasonal fruits from local farms such as Crescent Harbor, Honey Moon Bay and Five Acre Farms, Varshock said the bakery also makes muffins and pies from Sherman Farms Hubbard squash and pumpkins. Rhubarb from Case Farm will make an appearance this spring. “We try to be as local as we can be,” said Varshock. The bakery is now offering deli sandwiches, soups, and Whidbey Island Coffee in addition to a delicious array of baked goods. Open from 7:30 a.m. to 5 p.m., Tuesday through Saturday, Kakie’s Bakery & Deli is located at 800 SE Pioneer Way in Oak Harbor.

District office may have tenant By BEN WATANABE Staff reporter Seven months of vacancy may end this Friday for the South Whidbey School District’s former administration building. The school board will review a lease agreement Wednesday night for Creativity Source. Michela Angelini will run the production company at the former district office on Camano

Wednesday, February 27, 2013 • The South Whidbey Record

Avenue near Langley Middle School. The agreement is for three months and $2,500 per month. Angelini must notify the school district by July 1 if the lease will be renewed for another year, until Aug. 31, 2014. Utilities will be paid by Creativity Source, not the school district. South Whidbey school administration vacated the building during the summer of 2012. District leaders wanted to shrink the schools’ “footprint” and consolidate its office space. The business office joined the district’s maintenance and transportation center on Maxwelton Road. Two other school facilities are leased by the district. The two-story building on the middle school campus is rented by Island Dance Theatre, and Bayview School houses continued learning program Whidbey Island Community Education Center. Ben Watanabe can be reached at bwatanabe@whidbeynews group.com
