Island County Commissioner Helen Price Johnson meets with county crews Wednesday to assess the damage a landslide did in the Ledgewood Beach area of Coupeville.

Landslide destroys home, devastates Ledgewood By JUSTIN BURNETT Staff reporter An enormous landslide in Ledgewood on Wednesday morning severely damaged at least one home and impacted more than 30 others. The slide occurred in the Central Whidbey community at about 4 a.m. Hundreds of feet of earth sloughed off from the bluff above Driftwood Way, destroying much of the road and knocking one home off its foundation. “It’s massive. I wouldn’t even put a description on it,” said Chad Michael, assistant chief of Central Whidbey Fire and Rescue. Looking at the devastation from above, the affected area appeared to be at least the size of two football fields. In fact, aerial footage from news helicopters show a shoreline

Gun shop readies to open next week By JIM LARSEN Record editor Next week if all goes as planned South Whidbey residents looking for a rifle or handgun won’t have to go to Oak Harbor or the mainland. Whidbey Arms is opening at Ken’s Korner Mall under the ownership of Freeland resident Jim Childers. “We’ll be opening Wednesday or Thursday,” he said as workers pieced together display cases, furniture and the security system. Marius Artis from Whidbey Telecom was wiring the security system, an essential item for a store that sells weapons. “Very, very,” Artis answered when asked if the store would be secure. “There’s not a spot you can step without setting off a motion (detector).” “Or from the ceiling,” added Childers, who’s ready for anything, even something like a Tom Cruise-like descent from the ceiling to grab a gun. With Childers’ system, even Cruise couldn’t escape unnoticed. Live cameras will record everything going on, day and night, and store the images at a separate location, making pulling off a successful burglary virtually a mission impossible. In terms of timing, Childers could have done better than pick a period when the entire nation is caught up in an emotional gun control debate, but Childers is undaunted, anxious to move his online business indoors. For the past year Whidbey Arms has been selling guns online. Purchasers have to

go to a federally licensed firearms dealer to pick up their weapons. He’s also sold at gun shows in Monroe and Puyallup, but this is his first retail shop. Whidbey Arms is located in the space recently vacated by Richard “Woody” Woodham, whose Workwear Jeans store had been a mall mainstay for a couple of decades. Right across the hallway is Island Drug. The Record received a few emails and voice messages expressing concern about the shop. “I was less than thrilled by this news,” said one caller, Marianne Edain. She worried that the gun shop is in the same building as Skagit Valley College’s South Whidbey branch. Childers said most people were curious but friendly as he was working Thursday. There was one angry woman who wouldn’t let him talk, repeating “Oh, my God!,” but there were no other issues, he said. People were commenting on the new store at Island Drug, but not in a negative fashion, said Amanda Markle, a pharmacy assistant. “It’s nice not having it empty,” she said, describing comments customers SEE GUN SHOP, A10

Notable Nonprofits thrive on ‘Madness’ tournament Rotary Club of South Whidbey won the trophy and seven other nonprofits shared the loot from the first March Madness South Whidbey Style basketball tournament. Eight teams representing Whidbey Island nonprofits competed for the title and raised money Sunday morning. Friends of Friends Medical Support Group, Good Cheer, Goosefoot, Hearts and Hammers, Helping Hand, South Whidbey Commons, Ryan’s House For Youth and Rotary all fielded teams in the March 24 tournament. Some teams played for sport, some teams played for fun; some teams played basketball by the rules, some teams didn’t know there were rules. All $652 raised at the event will find its way back into the community. In the end, Rotary’s talent won the five-on-five tournament, the trophy and $175. Louis Muniz, Rotary’s team captain, said the money would go toward constructing an outdoor basketball court at South Whidbey Community Park. Tournament organizers said they owe its success to many people, including the eight nonprofits and their teams and referees Greg Hein, Paul Sarkis, Steve Shapiro, Paul Thompson, Leslie Tidball, Rick Urban, Jeff White and Don Heggeness. Scorekeeping was handled by the

Earlier this month, HUB youths volunteered at the Good Cheer Food Bank, which supplies the nonprofit organization with food and snacks. HUB kids dug up onions and strawberry plants, shoveled soil and compost together and filled the planting bed with more soil, then replanted the strawberries in less than an hour. “The kids literally got their hands dirty and had a lot of fun in the process,” said Frankie Petitclerc, The HUB’s program manager.

Education center has days before possible eviction

By BEN WATANABE Staff reporter Not paying rent or utilities gets most tenants kicked out sooner than six months. But the Whidbey Island Community Education Center has only a few days before it faces eviction by the South Whidbey School District. That is, only if its house is in order. “They were asking for more than we were willing to give them,” said Steve Scoles, school board chairman. “We said we’re not willing to give (them) any deal if they’re not willing to fulfill the agreement they already entered into.” School board members approved a renegotiated six-month lease with the continued learning program housed at the hundred yearold Bayview School. Rather than pay the district $1,000 per month, the education center pays $500, plus monthly utilities and six months of unpaid utilities costs of more than $1,800. In the education center’s proposal, it requested the lower rent to “enable the other partners to establish their programs and gain financial stability,” “allow for WICEC to further develop its programs and increase tuition revenue,” “give time to the executive director and the board to develop a more mature and sophisticated approach to raising money,” and give “needed time to do

more research and with partners to write grants...” Whidbey Island Community Education Center has until April 1 to comply with several stipulations for the new agreement to begin. Paying the owed utilities costs is a start, but the center must also assume the utility bills in its name. A $500 deposit is due as well. “It’s not designed to cost the district anything and bring in rental fees actually,” said Superintendent Jo Moccia. “Now we’re expecting them to make good on all the terms of the lease.” A first step was made Thursday when the center delivered proof of insurance to the school district.

If the education center does not comply with the lease, eviction is a possibility for the new nonprofit. “We’re hoping that it doesn’t come to that, but they’re fully aware that the district can’t incur any cost,” Moccia said. The education center was founded to provide adults a place to learn in a structured environment.

Continued learning is not new to South Whidbey, but the Whidbey Island Community Education Center offers teachers, both accredited and not, subjects such as photography, reading poetry, public speaking, 3D printing and Wine 101. The lease was structured for the nonprofit to use Bayview School rent free for six months, then pay $1,000 for the next six months. Starting in September, the lease increases to $1,500 per month until August 2014.

OAK HARBOR

Harbor Pride, a community organization dedicated to improving Oak Harbor. Parks Director Hank Nydam shared details about the health of the Garry oak, the centerpiece of the garden. Nydam said the tree was recently measured at 62 feet tall with a canopy 100 feet across. A contest is being held to name the sculpture. The winner will receive a small carving by McVay. Entries may be put in a jar in the post office.

Harbor joins Pat McVay bench Oak with chickens adorns Oak Harbor cities The Oak Harbor City South Whidbey woodworking artist Pat McVay was in the limelight despite the threatening dark sky as community members and civic leaders gathered to celebrate Oak Harbor’s newest piece of public artwork last Wednesday. The community formally welcomed the arrival of an elaborately crafted 14-foot cedar bench that now rests in front of the Oak Harbor Post Office. The new “story board sculpture” was designed and hand carved by McVay, who was among about 30 people who gathered. The intent was to provide a peaceful spot for the community to rest and reflect in direct view of the 400-year-old oak tree at the post office’s native plant demonstration garden. Island Thrift and Harbor Pride were the primary funders of the new artwork. It marked the final project of

Council unanimously passed an ordinance last week to permit the keeping and raising of up to six hens within city limits. The city joins Coupeville, Anacortes, Seattle and others across the nation in embracing the urban chicken trend. Larry Eaton, a former city councilman, brought up the issue last year after he discovered his family’s backyard chickens were not allowed under city code. It turns out that a lot of people in Oak Harbor had been unknowingly violating the code by keeping chickens. Even Mayor Scott Dudley said his neighbor has a small brood. As a result, the council instructed city staff to hatch a proposal reversing the prohibition. The new ordinance allows a maximum of six hens, but no roosters. It states that they must be kept within a fence, pen or coop in back yards.

Editorial

Landslides bring insurance to mind Two major landslides over the last week remind us that those who live on the island’s edge trade great views for significant risks. A big hunk of Camano Avenue sidewalk and accompanying slope slid down to Wharf Street in Langley last Friday, blocking marina access. The community responded admirably in getting people to and from the marina, opening a walking route to Seawall Park and driving visitors around in a golf cart. But the full extent of the damage and total cost of repairs has yet to be determined. Then the “big one” hit Wednesday on Central Whidbey, when a huge landslide at Ledgewood Beach took down one house, tons of material, endangered other homes, and caused some folks to temporarily evacuate. Obviously, a number of homeowners were financially devastated as they’ll never be able to sell their homes even if they can continue to live in them. Earlier this year, a landslide at Possession Point wiped out one summer home and semi-buried another in mud. In all three cases, it was a miracle no one was hurt physically, although the financial and emotional damage was considerable. Whidbey Island’s bluffs have always been prone to landslides and slower erosion which, in the long run, is just as damaging. People who built homes 200 feet from a bluff a few decades ago might now be only a few feet from the bluff. It’s only a matter of time before these homes go, too. Following the Ledgewood landslide, the Northwest Insurance Council sent out a timely reminder that standard homeowner insurance policies “specifically exclude damage caused by earth movement such as a landslide.” Special coverage for landslides is available for an additional cost, of course. As with earthquake insurance, homeowners must weigh the cost against their assets and the likelihood of disaster. Most skip the insurance and hope for the best, but today many are no doubt having second thoughts. The nonprofit Insurance Council informs us that homeowners can purchase a Difference in Conditions policy through a surplus-lines carrier as a stand-alone policy. This policy includes coverage for landslide, mudflow, earthquake and flood. Depending on risk factors, such as the slope of your property or proximity to a cliff, a homeowner with a $300,000 house can expect to pay $1,000 or more per year for this coverage. Is it worth it? That’s up for each homeowner to decide. More information is available at www. nwinsurance.org.

Thinking about peace people To the editor: As a person who stood on the Coupeville corner witnessing for peace and against the War ON Iraq, I congratulate South Whidbey Record editor Jim Larsen for the insightful editorial (“Peace efforts make us think”). Thanks for the recognition. If the presence of people witnessing for peace caused some people to rethink, or begin to analyze the causes and costs (human and material) of the Iraq and Afghanistan wars, it was worth our effort. The need for a physical presence to oppose the war was at its core a failure of the national media to ask tough questions. Instead the media, unlike Jim Larsen, acted as cheerleaders for the government. We are out of Iraq and slated to leave Afghanistan, but our nation still allocates over half of our discretionary spending budget to the Pentagon. Unfortunately, as long as over half our annual revenues go for military purposes we are susceptible to more aggressive wars of domination like Iraq.

to prevent build up of waste on the bottom, and sufficient year-around water quality for salmon to survive. Based on studies I did in the late ’80s, toxic plankton blooms and slow currents in Saratoga Passage preclude successful net pen operation in that area, but there are potentially viable sites on west side of Whidbey Island, despite your bold claim there are none in Island County. By “properly operated” I mean operated in a manner that maximizes the conversion of feed to flesh (which minimizes waste feed), and minimizes the stress to the fish (which prevents the outbreak of disease that wild salmon pass to farmed salmon, not the other way around). It is also fact that Atlantic salmon escape from pens, but there is no legitimate basis to claim these escapees threaten native salmon populations (Atlantic salmon have been released to Pacific Northwest waters since the early 1900s, and have yet to establish self-sustaining populations). Moreover, it makes good business sense to reduce feed waste, avoid disease outbreaks and minimize escape. Of course, the issue of whether net pen salmon farming is appropriate anywhere in Island County involves more than just environmental concerns. There are legitimate aesthetic and competing use concerns that must be addressed. But there are also significant direct benefits from salmon farming operations that should not be ignored. Job creation is an obvious one, and a particularly important one in light of the lack of job opportunities for young

adults in Island County. Tax revenue to the county is another. The collateral benefits to a community from salmon farming are the same as those for any manufacturing or farming business. Unfortunately, many wellmeaning individuals who choose sides in this debate are wooed by provocative claims that multi-national business conglomerates want to swoop in, destroy our “pristine” waters for the sake of a few dollars and leave us poor schmucks with the resulting environmental disaster. That version of reality may make for good headlines, and seemingly politically correct editorials, but it ignores the facts, flies in the face of real world experience, and prevents reasoned deliberations about the pros and cons of allowing salmon farming in Island County. I encourage Island County residents to independently and objectively assess what salmon net pens have to offer communities like ours. Be sure to understand the source of the information you consult, and whether it has an agenda that may skew its take on the facts. Personally, I respect the work of government organizations like the Washington State Department of Ecology and the National Marine Fisheries Service, but you may not, so look elsewhere, be critical of everything you read, and make up your own mind rather than accepting what I, the editor of this paper or Whidbey Environmental Action Network claims is the truth. I am confident after you do so that you will agree that a total ban on salmon net pens in Island County makes as much sense as shooting yourself in the foot. Chris Gibson lives in Langley.

Bats fall flat in four-game losing streak By BEN WATANABE Staff reporter Losing three games in three days had South Whidbey waiting for a turnaround — and a break. Wednesday’s 5-2 loss to Coupeville had South Whidbey pining for a reprieve. The Falcons played games Monday, Tuesday and Wednesday this week, plus Friday’s game after the Record went to press. Through four innings in a makeup game against Lakewood on Tuesday, South Whidbey was close. The Falcons led 3-0 after the second inning. South Whidbey never scored again. Lakewood changed course in the third. The Cougars scored four runs, including one on an error. Falcon sophomore Trent Fallon put one runner on base with a walk. After stealing second base, the Cougars scored on a RBI single to right field. Another stolen base and another walk later Lakewood scored a RBI single up the middle that put both runners in scoring position on the throw to home plate. A fielder’s choice to second baseman Jake Sladky allowed Lakewood to score another run at the cost of its second out. Another fielder’s choice, this one to Falcon senior Jack Lewis at third base, was dropped by first baseman CJ Sutfin and scored a fourth run. Other than the scoring fest in the first inning,

sets, South Whidbey lost two games. The third doubles victory, however, sealed the Falcons’ sweep. Breanna Gauger and Sophie Nilsen rebounded from losing the first set to win the match 4-6, 6-2, 6-2. They defeated Coupeville’s Micky LeVine and Jacki Ginnings. Falcon singles sisters Hayley Newman and Carlie Newman each won 6-0, 6-0. South Whidbey’s top doubles team won in straight sets, 6-0, 6-0.

McCauley’s assists huge in soccer rivalry South Whidbey’s quest to own the boys soccer rivalry with Coupeville got off to the right start Tuesday in a 2-0 win. Falcon senior midfielder Connor McCauley assisted on both scores to beat the Wolves in Coupeville. His first assist set up Bryce Auburn and senior Stephen Lyons scored the last. Andrew Holt secured the

shutout as the Falcons’ goalie. The win kept South Whidbey (2-0 Cascade Conference; 2-1-0 overall) perfect in conference contests.

Wildcats blast Falcon fastpitch squad Falcon junior Mackenzie Hezel gave up a grand slam in the third inning to Archbishop Murphy in a 9-1 romp Wednesday. The Falcons could not keep up after the Wildcats scored five runs in the third inning.

Packing its scores in the mid-90s worked for the South Whidbey boys golf team Thursday. The Falcons won their first Cascade Conference match this season against Lakewood, 470 to 529. It was also a rare clear day this spring in which the teams finished 18 holes. Derrick Riley led South Whidbey with 89 strokes. Lakewood’s top golfer Christian Case tallied 80 and was just edged as the match’s medalist. Coupeville’s Austin Fields scored 79. Thus far, South Whidbey’s top scorer has rotated between Riley and Jordan Hoch through four matches. Hoch shot a 93 and finished second for the Falcons. At the start of the season, Jon Rasmussen was slated as the Falcons’ top golfer. Since the jamboree, he has struggled and shot a 97 at Cedarcrest Golf Course in Marysville. Evan Merculief played in one of his first matches this year. He was limited because of an injury but returned Thursday and shot a 96 as South Whidbey’s fourth scorer. Daniel Caron was the Falcons’ third golfer to finish and came in with a 95. Earlier in the week, South Whidbey played a nonconference match against three Wesco teams. South Whidbey finished last in a field that included 3A Everett, 3A Stanwood and 4A Jackson. At Kayak Point Golf Course on Wednesday, South Whidbey’s scores jumped 10 strokes compared to Thursday. Riley was the only consistent golfer with 97 strokes. Caron shot a 102, Rasmussen a 104, Chase Collins a 105 and Merculief a 106. Everett won the match.

Ken lived in the Puget Sound region for more than 40 years, residing on South Whidbey since 2003. He purchased a homestead cabin in the Woodland Hall community in Clinton in the mid 1980s that he completely refurbished and made his home. Kenneth was married for 40 years and is preceded in death by his first wife Ellen Mary (Marz) Carlin, and preceded also by his sister Dorann Bellotti. He is survived by his second wife Nancy Hepp, his daughters Mari(Jeremiah) Apana of Shoreline and Elise (Korbett) Miller of Snohomish, brother Ronald, sister Georgia and seven grandchildren. A man of varied interests and strengths, Kenneth studied for the priesthood with the Society of Jesus (Jesuits) from 1962-66. After leaving the Jesuits he worked briefly in social work. Ken then studied carpentry and worked as a general contractor for 25 years, including running his own award winning business in Seattle construction and remodeling high end homes throughout the region. Ken obtained master’s degrees in Pastoral Ministry and Theological Studies from Seattle University, where he also completed a course in spiritual direction from the Institute for Theological Studies. Ken was a registered movement therapy practitioner with the Institute for Transformational Movement as well.

the same as it was last year, but fishing time will be curtailed to compensate for exceeding last year’s quota, said Heather Reed, coastal policy coordinator for the Washington Department of Fish and Wildlife, in a news release Wednesday. This year’s seasons were reduced by five days in the eastern region (Marine Areas 6-10) and nine days in the western region (Marine Area 5) to compensate for exceeding last year’s quota. “Catch rates were up again in Puget Sound last year, so we had to make some adjustments,” Reed

said. “In doing that, we made sure the seasons will open on the traditional opening dates, so folks can plan their annual halibut fishing trips well in advance.” Here are the 2013 Puget Sound halibut seasons: Marine Area 5: From May 23-26, the fishery will be open Thursday, Friday, Saturday and Sunday for Memorial Day weekend. From May 30 through June 1, the fishery will be open Thursday, Friday and Saturday and then will be open for one final day on Saturday, June 8. Marine Areas 6, 7, 8,

Ken’s hobbies and pastimes included community service, family history research, bicycling, hiking, traveling, gardening, music, and reading, especially philosophy, psychology and spirituality. Ken loved a good meal time with his family, and he was a frequent volunteer with organizations that work to improve health and community. His love of learning, his call to service and his investigations of spiritual meaning and practice were strong throughout his life. Donations in Ken’s honor can be made to Hearts & Hammers of South Whidbey Island, the music therapy program at Providence Hospital in Everett or Commonweal in Bolinas, Calif.

In its place the family invites all who knew and loved Ken to join in a celebration of his life following the memorial. Guests are invited to bring a beverage or dessert to share, to accompany a meal that will be served, and dancing shoes will be appropriate. The family would appreciate a message of intent to attend the celebration so that they can plan accordingly.

Island Dance excels in competitions By LYNN SMITH Special to The Record

Island Dance, Whidbey’s dance studio extraordinaire, has two categories of competition dancers: those who are contracted members of the “Competition Team” and Independent Competition dancers or “Indies” who compete on their own, at varied Northwest Regional events. This 2013 season the Indies are veteran competitor Melyssa Smith who performs her selfchoreographed solo “Take It All,” and second year competitor Taylor Philippsborn who dances a solo contemporary piece, “It’s Gonna be a Long Walk” choreographed by Island Dance instructor Jamee Pitts. Most recently, March 8-10, both indie dancers competed at the Spotlight NW Regionals in Tukwila where they won Ruby level awards for their solos and Melyssa was chosen from among 100 Senior level solo entries and awarded the “Outstanding Choreography” Judges Choice banner. Melyssa also earned the highest level Diamond award for an “Interpretive Solo” for which she listened to an unknown piece of music before performing her improvised dance. At Rainbow, held in January in Seattle, Taylor earned a first place trophy and was awarded a Platinum award level plaque in the Intermediate Division and received a select invitation to a dance education event in New York City. Melyssa also was awarded a Platinum in the Senior Rainbow Division. In

By JIM LARSEN Record editor After months of discussions, it appears the Holmes Harbor Sewer District is about to buy itself a golf course and then lease it out to someone else. A hearing on the proposal will be held Thursday, April 4, at 1 p.m. in the district office, 1200 East Antelope, Freeland. All persons who may be interested in the purchase and lease are invited to appear at the hearing and be heard. According to a notice sent late Thursday by Stan Walker, president of the district board, the sale will be between the sewer dis-

trict and Holmes Harbor Golf, LLC. No purchase price is mentioned, but in past discussions the figure of $200,000 has been kicked around. The golf course has been closed for approximately one year. Once the sale is complete, the district proposes to enter a lease, described as “a ground lease of land for golf course irrigating and reclaimed water use,” between the district and Patrick T. Kent Golf, LLC. That entity would apparently operate the golf course and maintain the grounds, which is where treated wastewater is dispersed. Cost of the lease is proposed to be $1 annually. With someone else maintaining the golf course grounds owned by the sewer district, approximately $70,000 annually would be saved in maintenance expenses, Walker has said in the past.

Water, sewer auditor awaits Freeland’s response By JIM LARSEN Record editor Freeland Water and Sewer District commissioners will meet Monday to discuss a response to a sometimes-negative state auditor’s report presented this week in a small meeting room packed with approximately 20 people. Next Monday’s meeting will begin at 5:50 p.m. in the district office at 5421 Woodard Ave., Freeland, and will be public only until the commissioners can announce an executive session with their attorney, who will be present, said Commissioner Marilyn Abrahamson. She didn’t know if any announcements would be made after the executive session. Lead auditor Spencer Bright presented his audit exit findings March 25, with help from Assistant Audit Manager Courtney Monson. The audit will not be complete until the sewer district responds to several negative “findings,” and those responses included in the final audit report, a process that could take weeks. Commissioner Eric Hansen was on the board dur-

The commissioners figuratively bit their tongues at 2013 LANGLEY times, but made statements that seemed to be in the district’s defense. “Had there been a red flag

the local grant for economic development. “The district does not owe the county any more money,” Bright said. Malzone pointed out the district is continuing to plan for a sewer system, but is using a different grant from the Department of Ecology. The district also erred in billing owners of empty lots for water after purchasing the Harbor Hills Water District for $1.2 million in 2007. As a result, it owes $115,674 in fees that have to be paid back, along with the cost of liens placed on properties. Bright said private water districts can charge owners of unimproved lots for water service because those districts are governed by the Washington Utilities and Transportation Commission. But once they become part of a public water system, such fees are not allowed under the Revised Code of Washington.

CENTENNIAL

Malzone told Bright the district’s accountant at the time, a representative from Edwards & Associates, “told us she called the state auditor and it was OK.” Bright said he had talked the accounting firm. “They were unable to provide me with any correspondence” saying the practice was allowable, he said. The district now uses a different firm, Whidbey Water Services, to manage its accounting and billing.

Abrahamson asked if the money would have to be paid back and Bright answered in the affirmative, but did not advice how that should be done. “It’s up to the district to decide how to remedy that situation,” he said.

Will they or won’t they?

Curtain rises on WICA’s ‘Full Monty’ By MICHAELA MARX WHEATLEY Staff reporter

D

irectors at Whidbey Island Center for the Arts have never shied away from shows that pushed the envelope. But as rehearsals rev up for the screen-tostage production of “The Full Monty,” the question on everyone’s mind is: How much “Monty” exactly will be revealed as the cast tackles the musical version of the 1997 movie. The audience will find out the answer Friday, April 5 when the show opens at WICA. It runs through April 20 and show times are 7:30 p.m. Fridays and Saturdays with 2 p.m. at Sunday matinees. In this Americanized stage version adapted from the British film, six unemployed Buffalo steelworkers, low on cash and prospects, decide to present a strip act at a local club after seeing their wives’ enthusiasm for a touring company of the Chippendales. They decide that their show will be better than the scantily clad Chippendale dancers because they’ll show it all — the full Monty. Behind the light-hearted premise is a story that explores how the stress of unemployment affects the men and their families. It also portrays their bouts with self-doubt, fears, selfconsciousness and anxieties. “It’s about feeling helpless and scared. It’s about people going through a transition and finding hope,” said director Elizabeth Herbert. “Everyone can relate to that.” Herbert added that the show takes a look these tough subjects, but at the same time it is full of laughs and clever writing. “It’s very funny,” Herbert said. “I have laughed so much more than I ever have before.” The show will be distinct from the

movie. “Everything that we’re bringing to the play is new,” she said. “It was truly a collaborative effort. The plot was moved from England to upstate New York, and the female characters got more emphasis. “The women are stronger in this play,” she explained. The set is simple and held in an industrial design. Ann Deacon and Tristan A.B. Steel created the set. But back to the big question. Just exactly how naked will the cast of actors — people that audiences might well encounter at the grocery store the next day — get? “It could get awkward,” Herbert said with a laugh. She is working on figuring out what theater trick to deploy to orchestrate the big reveal. In the movie, the actors skillfully cover up with a hat as they remove their final piece of clothing. Herbert said this would be challenging at WICA as the audience is close to the stage at the theater. While Herbert is navigating the path of community theater appropriateness, her cast seems to have no problem with the task at hand. “They are so free and uninhibited. The Monty men are amazing,” she said. Leading the company of Herbert’s production are Ken Stephens, Ryan Saenz, Bob Atkinson, Tristan A.B. Steel, Fernando Duran and Cameron Gray. And even if nudity does not shock audiences, the language may, Herbert warned. Herbert said this is not a show for the family. “The language is definitely blue,” she said. “If it’s not the nudity, some will be shocked by the language, but they are steel mill workers.” That said, Herbert doesn’t think the show is too scandalous for Whidbey

Standing is Tristan A.B.Steel. audiences. “They’ve done this in the Bible Belt,” she said. “I would think we can handle it here.” The Full Monty was adapted to stage by Terrence McNally and scored by David Yazbek. To bring the musical to life, Herbert brought musical and dance experts on board. Musical direction is by Sheila Weidendorf, choreography by Chelsea Randall, Herbert’s daughter. Her sister Savannah is assisting with choreography. The team has brought out the best in the cast, Herbert said. “We have some solid voices,” she said. The original Broadway production of “The Full Monty” was nominated for 10 Tony Awards in 2001, including

Director Elizabeth Herbert learned how to walk while traveling by train with her family and Henry Fonda in the Broadway tour, Point of No Return. She became a member of the American Federation of Television and Radio Artists at the age of 4 when she made her professional debut in live television (NBC’s Matinee Theatre). After that she embarked on a career in theater and television acting. With her daughters, Savannah and Chelsea Randall, Elizabeth owned a successful acting school in Las Vegas and has written 60 short films. Herbert arrived on Whidbey Island five years ago. Besides her engagement with WICA, she also writes and directs Postcards from Whidbey Island, a live, theatre-radio, variety show based in Coupeville.

Chickens, ducks preen for annual Coop Tour Religion notes The fourth annual Whidbey Island Coop Tour will offer visitors some of Whidbey’s best, funniest, funkiest and most beautiful chicken enclosures. Six island poultry keepers will open their farms and backyards to the public Saturday, April 20, to show off their coops and unique fowl. Celebrities will thrill on this self-guided tour as visitors meet the Mayor of Whidbey 2012 (a speckled Sussex rooster) and Mick Jagger (another rooster) while viewing innovative designs such as a “crooked coop” straight from a Dr. Seuss book, the chicken condo with a view, three hillside coops built by three brothers, moveable “chicken tractors” and a coop with metal roof and electricity that is so attractive it is often mistaken for a guest house. Organized by The Rock’n

Doodle 4-H Poultry Club, visitors will also pick up practical ideas like using recycled materials, capturing and directing rainwater to poultry, automatic door openers and waterers, and have questions answered about poultry health and care from 4-H members and coop owners The tour is 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. and tickets and tour maps for $10 per person or carpool are available after April 1 at Bayview Farm and Garden at Bayview Corner, and Skagit Farmers Supply in Freeland and Oak Harbor. For tour details look on Facebook (Rock’n Doodle 4-H Poultry Club) or email RocknDoodle@whidbey.com.

Likely kitchen contractor picked for Pole Building By JUSTIN BURNETT Staff reporter Work on a new kitchen for the historic Pole Building at the Whidbey Island Fairgrounds in Langley may begin as soon as next month. Following a public bidding process, Island County Public Works officials are recommending the job go to Oak Harbor-based Nautilus Construction and Management. The firm was the lowest bidder of three construction firms, quoting a total cost of $80,893. According to Bill Oakes, director for public works, Nautilus has worked on other projects for the county and performed well. But there are still some details that need to be worked out before a contract can be signed. Additional demolition of

the existing kitchen is needed that was not factored into the company’s original bid. It’s not yet clear who will do the work or how much it will cost, he said. “Whether that’s the fair or the contractor, we need to figure that out,” Oakes said. Volunteers, in fact, already gutted the old kitchen area to prepare for the remodeling. The Gust Skarberg building, commonly referred to as the Pole Building, was constructed in 1937 under the auspices of the federal Works Progress Administration. It’s been used by a wide range of groups over the years, but currently serves as the Island County Fair Association’s headquarters. It’s also used by the local OutCast theater group and for boat storage. The existing kitchen has fallen into disrepair. The

project seeks to renovate the space so that it can be used by caterers or other groups needing a modern, non-commercial kitchen space. Funding for the project is from three sources: $50,000 from a federal grant, $35,000 from county real estate excise taxes and a $15,000 in-kind-match from the fair association. Oakes is hopeful the demolition hiccup will be sorted out soon and that a contract will be signed by the Island County commissioners next month. That would allow construction on the six-week project to begin by the end of April. At a recent meeting with

the board, Commissioner Helen Price Johnson called the building a “well used facility ... in desperate need of sprucing up.” “We’re richly blessed in Island County to have the fairgrounds and the historic buildings that are there, but they need tender-lovingcare and this an opportunity for us to do that,” she said.

“Rejoice!,” is the simple title of Rev. Johanna Gabriel’s talk Easter Sunday, at 10 a.m. at Unity of Whidey, 5671 Crawford Road. Rev. Gabriel joins the congregation as they acknowledge and celebrate the Christ Presence awakened in each of us, offering an enhanced experience of this life when we open up to it. Tadd CharetteNunn, Dinah Stinson, Jean Schmidt and Kathy Link will provide Easter musical inspiration and Karen McInerney will be the platform assistant. All are welcome for our worship service.

Going beyond chocolate bunnies “It’s About More Than Chocolate Bunnies,” is the theme behind the

Unitarian Universalist Congregation meeting Sunday, March 31 at 10 a.m. at 20103 Highway 525, north of Freeland. Dennis Reynolds, UUCWI’s minister, will offer a Jungian perspective on resurrection. Children’s religious exploration classes and childcare will be available. The service is at 10 am at 20103 Highway 525, just north of Freeland. Visit the new website at www. uucwi.org.

Jesus’ message is alive today During Easter season, we can sometimes wonder if the teachings of Jesus or his resurrection have any practicality or reality in our lives today. Jesus didn’t have the Internet, nor an iPhone, nor even a radio. Yet his teachings have survived through the centuries without any human technology. On Sunday, the Christian Science services explores “Reality” in connection to Jesus’ teaching and resurrection and their influence on our lives today. Services begin at 10:30 a.m. at 15910 Highway 525.

Grange celebrates with the community RECORD STAFF Restoration and improvements to the Deer Lagoon Grange are well under way thanks in large part to the community’s support. “We have done the major straightening stuff — floors level, walls straight and a regulation foundation,” said Chuck Prochaska, who holds the title of Grange overseer. There’s still much more to do, but in recognition of progress the community is invited to celebrate at the Deer Lagoon Grange, 5142 Bayview Road, Langley, at 5:30 p.m. Tuesday, April 2. At the event the Grange will share some of the improvements made to the building over the last several months and their plans for the near and long term. Also, the grange will present its annual “Community Citizen Award” to Drew Kampion developer of Drew’s List. In 2011, members of Deer Lagoon Grange recognized that their historic building built in 1904 was in urgent need of major repair and modernization. The problem was that the group did not have the resources to necessary work. The decision was made to ask the South Whidbey community to come forward with help to preserve this important building for future generations to use much like they have for the last century. “We believe that the Grange Hall is the oldest, non-residential, non-farm building in Bayview,” Prochaska said.

Collectively, the Grange and community raised in excess of $22,000, nearly half of the original goal. Significant donors are recognized on the Grange website, www.deerlagoongrange. com. “This amounts to a great beginning, but much more remains to be accomplished,” Prochaska said. Still on the work agenda: repair the roof, re-sheath the stairwell, upgrade the heating system, replace the single pane windows in the kitchen, upgrade the stove/ oven area, rebuild the sink counter, upgrade the wiring, and more. “The Grange would like to renew our appeal to the

Barge brings home from reservation to Whidbey By JIM LARSEN Record editor One person’s loss is another’s gain, which means there was one happy family Wednesday when a barge brought a fine, twostory house to the shores of Whidbey Island at Mutiny Bay. The house was offloaded and spent the night at the public parking lot at Mutiny Bay, and the next day was moved to its final resting place on a lot on East Mutiny Lane. From there the Schinnerer family, including Mike and Annie and their two children, Kailey, 10, and Teige, 7, can enjoy island life along with a stunning view of Mutiny Bay, Admiralty Inlet and sunsets over the Olympics. Mike Schinnerer purchased the house after the owner was forced by the Tulalip Tribes to remove it from reservation property. Leases for lots on which 24 waterfront homes had sat for decades expired and the tribes refused to renew them as they wanted to reclaim the land and return it to its natural state. Most of the houses were torn down and sold for scrap, but two were in good enough shape to sell if the purchaser moved them. Schinnerer jumped at the chance to purchase a twostory house with a balcony, five bedrooms and more than 3,000 square feet of living space. “We love it here and it’s a great fit for our lot — perfect,” he said. They had a mobile home on their vacation property but moved it out to make room for the house. Since he works for a software company in Seattle, the family will continue to spend most of their time at their Issaquah home, but they’re looking forward to spending much more time on Whidbey. “It’s beautiful here,” he said.

With their summer home floating in the background in Mutiny Bay, the Schinnerer family waits happily as the crew prepares to off load the house from the barge. Proud owners are Mike and Annie Schinnerer, along with Kailey, 10, and Teige, 7. “All those houses demolAnd they’re already happy ished — it’s really sad,” she with the house. said, adding she “It’s exactly was happy her the layout we family could save would build,” “We love it here one of them. said Annie According to S c h i n n e r e r. and it’s a great an article in the The couple fit for our lot Everett Herald, estimate they perfect.” two dozen famiwere able to purchase the Mike Schinnerer lies had to tear house and Freeland down or otherwise remove move it from their houses the reservafrom Mission tion near Marysville for 40 percent of Beach when 50-year leases the cost of building a similar expired.

The flailing flicker and other indoor bird tales

WHIDBEY BIRDING Frances Wood Recently, while waiting for the Whidbey SeaTac Shuttle in the tall, glass-walled section of the airport terminal near baggage claim, I noticed a woven wire enclosure tucked behind the large display of granite boulders. It looked like a big birdcage, maybe 4x6x4 with two seed feeders and a couple of water sources plus some fake greenery. I scooted around the rocks to read a sign on

the cage and learned it was a bird decoy trap. The trap is intended to lure in the wild birds that flutter around inside the terminal and, once captured, the birds can be released outside. The trap was supposed to hold live sparrows to attract their species-mates into the cage. But when I saw it, the trap was empty. That section of the airport, light and airy with waiting passengers eating snacks or sipping coffee, provided a comfortable environment for these freeloaders. Several house sparrows perched near the tables watching for a handout. Haven’t we all seen birds, usually house sparrows or rock doves, in large public places such as malls, sports arenas or enclosed plazas? After arriving home, I spoke to Steve Osmek, wildlife biologist for the Port of Seattle and the person in charge of the bird removal project. He said those birds are a health hazard and add to the janitorial costs. It has been a major challenge to figure out a way to trap the birds. In fact, the water feature that was installed with the boulder display has been turned off, so the

sparrows could be induced into the traps. About 50 birds are removed via that trap each year. He emphasized, once again, the importance of obeying the “Do Not Feed the Birds” signs, both in the airport an in other public places. Wild birds indoors and unable to exit can be a problem both for them and for us. At my house there is a Bewick’s wren that hops up onto the back deck and pecks into each crevice around the outside walls of the house looking for insects. If I leave the back door open, even just a few inches, it will peck its way inside. Once inside it heads for the crumbs under the kitchen table and when startled, the bird flies toward the closest window hoping to escape. No amount of banging from one window to the next releases the bird, which has evidently long since forgotten its route into the house. Then I must calmly and gently capture the bird and usher it back outside to safety. We also have a problem with hummingbirds getting trapped in our garage. I expect the red cars

attract them. Our garage has four large recessed skylights so once inside the hummers think they can escape up and out that route. Even if I leave the garage door open, their inner drive is “up and out” rather than “down and out.” A ladder, broom and much patience on my part (and sometimes waiting until they are exhausted) are usually successful. Talking calmly to them also seems to help. But our most exciting bird-inthe-house drama happened when a Northern Flicker, likely looking for a safe, warm roost, came down our chimney. It was during the Christmas holidays and we already had a house full of visitors. A flicker may not look very large outside on a tree limb, but inside on the living room coffee table, it becomes gigantic. That bird flailed itself into a large window while our guests fled the room. It then rocketed across the room and into a glass door, before dropping to the floor momentarily stunned. I quickly pulled off my sweater and blanketed the bird before it regained its senses. Then grabbed it firmly.

My husband opened the door and I carried it outside to freedom. We were ready for some liquid holiday cheer after that. Handling a wild bird indoors can be challenging, so here are a few tips. Stay calm and assess the situation first. Will the bird find its own way out? If so, open all nearby doors and windows and turn off the lights. Birds naturally head to daylight. If you must capture the bird, use a lightweight towel. Quickly fling the towel over the bird, aiming to cover the bird’s head and beak. Grasp the towel and the bird firmly around the bird’s body, keeping the wings closed. Be prepared for the bird to try to peck you and struggle to escape. Hold on and carry the bird outside to a safe spot. Remove the towel and stand back. Reflecting on my conversation with Steve Osmek, I’m reminded that keeping wild birds outside is always the best plan. It’s about respecting our health but more importantly, it’s about respecting their wildness. Frances Wood can be reached at wood@whidbey.com.

County Connector routes threatened by state budget cuts By NATHAN WHALEN Staff reporter Island Transit officials are worried they may lose funding for a service that has been seeing tens of thousands of riders. The Tri-County Connector and Everett Connector provide bus transpor tation from

Whidbey and Camano islands to Mount Vernon and Everett. Martha Rose, executive director for Island Transit, said she is concerned that the money needed to fund the connector services won’t make it into the state budget. Current funding for the program runs out June 30. Island Transit partici-

Ridership on the connector routes has increased since they were implemented. “Tri-County and Everett has become one piece of a nice healthy puzzle,” Rose said. Island Transit officials have been busy keeping their riders abreast of the situation. They have been sending out rider alerts encouraging people to contact their state representative. State Rep.

Karen Boldra uses the connectors during the week to help with her commute from the Tulalip Reservation near Marysville to her job in Oak Harbor where she is a writer. She drives from her home to Mount Vernon and then hops on Island Transit, which offers farefree service, to her job on Whidbey. She said it cuts her fuel costs in half and the two-hour trip happens opposite commuter traffic. “I’m so blessed,” Boldra said.

preexisting medical condition and was transported to Whidbey General Hospital. As of 10:30 a.m., Central Whidbey Fire and Rescue emergency responders busily evacuated the remaining residents from their homes by boat. According to Fire Chief Ed Hartin, a total of 17 homes on Fircrest Avenue were evacuated as sections of the bluff continued to slough off through the morning. One resident, Bret Holmes, lost more and more ground all morning. Holmes said the first slide occurred just before 4 a.m. He was awakened by what some have described as a sonic boom. “I heard something loud, looked out my window and noticed I didn’t have any trees in the front yard anymore,” he said. Initially, his yard stretched more than 30 feet to the bluff’s edge. The first slide took out a large portion but additional

sloughing with him with only about 15 feet. “It’s still moving,” Hartin confirmed. “Two (homes) are significantly threatened,” he said. Island County called in a geotechnical engineer that afternoon and the evaluation results will determine how long residents will have to

ing Ledgewood, visited that morning to see firsthand the devastation wrought by the landslide. Struggling for words, she characterized the damage as “enormous” and said she was “saddened” for Ledgewood residents. “It’s a tragic loss for these property owners and this community,” Price Johnson said. “We just need to pull together.” It’s unclear whether the damage can even be repaired. A huge section of Driftwood Way was completely destroyed and many of the homes along Fircrest remain threatened as sections of the bluff continue to slough off. Holmes’ house is one of those most threatened and he was busy Wednesday morning moving belongings to the garage, which is located behind the house. While he’s worried about what will happen, he said he was grateful to have not been hurt in the disaster. Just the day before, he had planned to mow the back yard with his tractor. “For some reason I decided against it,” Holmes said. “Thank God.”
