Dudley takes aim at health benefits

‘One big fish away from the line snapping’

OH mayor says city needs cheaper plan By JESSIE STENSLAND Staff reporter

Oak Harbor Mayor Scott Dudley wants to eliminate health insurance for himself and council members. Dudley told the Whidbey News-Times that he also wants to cut salaries for the mayor position and city council members. That would require a salary commission. Dudley argues that the positions are all part-time and that serving the community shouldn’t be about getting paid. He added out that the council claims the city is in a financial emergency. Each payday, Dudley writes a check to the City of Oak Harbor, giving back 20 percent of his salary. The mayor earns about $51,000 per year. Dudley’s proposal will likely further estrange him from council members, who’ve been critical of many of the mayor’s decisions. The proposal to cut elected officials’ pay and benefits comes amid discussions about possibly downgrading the city’s health insurance coverage. Dudley proposes moving to a cheaper plan, and that is upsetting employees. Councilman Rick Almberg, who’s on the health care plan, said that council members only make $7,200 a year. “I would be happy to give up mine when he gives up his entire salary,” he said. “We work a lot harder than he does.” Councilwoman Tara Hizon, who is also on the city’s health plan, echoed Almberg’s sentiments. She said the See Mayor, A11

Island County Prosecutor Greg Banks addresses the Island County Commissioners last week. He and Island County Sheriff Mark Brown, right, want the board to support a fall ballot measure that would seek millions for law-and-justice funding.

Law-and-justice leaders want $2.6 mil measure on ballot

By JUSTIN BURNETT Staff reporter

Law-and-justice leaders are once again lobbying the Island County commissioners. They are asking the commissioners to sign off on a proposal allowing them to ask voters this fall for more than $2.6 million in funding. “I feel like we’re one big fish away from the line snapping,” Island County Prosecutor Greg Banks told the commissioners. During a presentation to the board last week, Banks led a panel of law-and-justice officials that laid out their case with a litany of service shortfalls, from overburdened attorneys

to reigning officer safety issues and delayed response times. Banks describes law and justice in the county as “woefully underfunded.” Things are being held together by a thread, he said, and the consensus among leaders is that the system is in the process of “unraveling.” Changes in the economy forced the commissioners to cut about $6 million from the budget over the past five years. Though law and justice, which includes police, courts and the prosecuting attorney’s office, still receives the bulk of funding —

more than 55 percent of the general fund — the cuts hit the departments hard. The jail, under the umbrella of the Island County Sheriff’s Office, is no exception. Following the presentation to the board last week, jail administrator De Dennis listed problems facing his facility during the commissioners’ annual tour of the jail Monday afternoon.

Owner of alleged drug house wanted on $10,000 warrant By JESSIE STENSLAND Staff reporter

An Oak Harbor woman accused of allowing a group of transients to use drugs in her home is being sought on a $10,000 warrant, according to Island County Superior Court documents. Prosecutors charged Brenda M. Elder, 45, with unlawful use of a building for drug purposes. Elder is reportedly homeless since the Oak Harbor police raided her residence on Northeast Fourth Avenue last June. There, police allegedly discovered 14 people living in squalor. The city’s code enforcement officer posted the residence as “unsafe to occupy” after reportedly finding raw sewage in a crawlspace. A 13-year-old girl was also allegedly raped at the home when she stayed overnight last year, according to court documents.

Police Detective Carl Seim, the department’s drug enforcement officer, obtained a search warrant for the house after allegedly conducting a “controlled buy” of methamphetamine from a man at the residence. The police department’s “high risk entry team” raided the home June 9. They breached the door with a ram and tossed a “diversionary device.” Eleven people were discovered inside the house by police, as well as a man living in a shed and two people inside a camper trailer in the backyard. The police, however, said they found only a small amount of marijuana, drug paraphernalia and baggies with suspected methamphetamine residue, according to Seim’s report. The police report describes the conditions of the home as

Suspect in Clinton stabbing turns himself in By JIM LARSEN

South Whidbey Record Editor

A man suspected of stabbing another man multiple times in Clinton turned himself in at 2:15 p.m. Monday at the Island County jail. Sheriff’s Detective Ed Wallace with the Island County Sheriff’s Office said Kamren Adams, 21, turned himself in to authorities only a few hours after his picture was posted on news websites. The victim, identified Monday afternoon as Justin Hilleary, 34, was initially listed in critical condition at an Everett area hospital, but his condition was subsequently upgraded to stable. Wallace met with Hilleary at the hospital Monday morning and said he was “doing fine,” and able to speak. The detective would not release any possible motive for the altercation. Adams was scheduled to make his first court appearance in Island County Superior Court at 1:15 p.m. Tuesday, April 16. Wallace said that the alter-

The only bathroom was missing a sink, dirty clothes and dishes were strewn all over and the floor was sagging. Seim wrote that a plumber who arrived to fix the sewage leak said he wasn’t able to do any work until the moisture and feces were cleaned up from the crawlspace. Neighbors of the residence told police they were concerned about the house, which was suspected to be

a place where people were using drugs. Cars were constantly coming and going from the residence, neighbors said. Several of the neighbors contacted by the Whidbey News-Times last summer and said they had sympathy for Elder, who appeared to have mental health issues. Elder gave refuge to homeless young people, but some people took advantage of her, a neighbor woman said.

Kamren Adams cation occurred at an apartment complex off Wilson Road in Clinton. Hilleary was stabbed multiple times, Wallace said. According to the incident report put out by the Sheriff’s Office, at least one of the wounds was a cut to the throat. The 911 call made by friends came in at 12:02 a.m. Sunday. The suspect, Adams, fled the scene but later decided to turn himself in. Anyone with additional information about the incident is asked to contact Detective Ed Wallace at 360679-9567.

Emersons fight county’s denial of building permit By JUSTIN BURNETT Staff reporter

Island County Commissioner Kelly Emerson appealed her recently denied building permit. Unless the matter is forwarded to another authority, she may have the chance to serve as a judge in her own case. Last week, Emerson and her husband, Ken Emerson, opted to fight the rejection of their long-contested building permit. The permit was rejected by outgoing planning chief Bob Pederson. THE EMERSONS filed a notice and statement of appeal April 11 with the Island County Clerk. Under county code, such

decisions are decided by the Board of Commissioners. Emerson, a Republican, currently serves as the board’s chairwoman. Emerson declined to discuss her plans, specifically whether she will recuse herself and leave her fate in the hands of her fellow commissioners. Emerson said last week, she will not make a decision until after discussing the matter with her attorney, Justin Parks of the Bellevuebased law firm, Romero Park P.S. “We have not had that conversation or made a decision,” Emerson said Monday during an interview with the Whidbey News-Times. COMMISSIONER Helen Price Johnson, a Democrat, also declined

“I’m hoping we don’t have to ask, but I’d be very uncomfortable if she stayed in the conversation.” Jill Johnson, Island County commissioner

to elaborate on her previous position. She repeated that elected officials have a standard of ethics to uphold when it comes to conflicts of interest, but that she will not voice an opinion until after conferring with county attorneys. “I’m just not ready to go into it,” she said. Republican Commissioner Jill Johnson did weigh in on the issue.

Johnson said she said is hopeful that Emerson will step away from the issue voluntarily without any nudging from fellow board members. “I’m hoping we don’t have to ask, but I’d be very uncomfortable if she stayed in the conversation,” Johnson said. THIS ISSUE has been controversial and polarizing, and Johnson said she believes it would be better if the outcome were decided by a neighboring county’s board of commissioners or executives. She investigated this week whether that might be possible, and said she is hoping to have an answer by Friday. “Regardless of what decision is made [by Island

County commissioners], there will be people who think it’s wrong,” Johnson said. “I just think it would be cleaner for the public if someone else reviews this and makes a decision,” she said. “It de-politicizes it.” IF A neighboring body of elected officials won’t address the issue for Island County, another possibility might be county Hearing Examiner Michael Bobbink. He is already set to hear the second half of Emerson’s case. Along with denying the commissioner’s building permit, Pederson, who resigned in March, also ordered the Emerson’s to pay $37,000 in fines that were levied more than two years ago. That decision is being appealed by the Emersons

and will go before Bobbink for resolution. LIKE THE building permit, however, the fine issue may at some point return before the board of commissioners. Should Bobbink uphold Pederson’s order, and the Emerson’s refuse to pay, legal action to place a lien on their property would have to be initiated by the commissioners. Such a decision will likely be months away, according to interim Planning Chief Keith Higman. Scheduling is yet to be confirmed, but Bobbink isn’t expected to hear the case until June. As for the building permit, even if it’s not passed to another authority, it was unclear Monday when the issue might go before the board.

Port commissioners apologize for remarks made months ago By Nathan Whalen Staff reporter

Commissioners for the Port of Coupeville are apologizing for comments made several months ago about a Greenbank resident’s perusal of district records while the port office was unattended and door locked. Commissioners Marshal Bronson and Benye Weber were openly critical of Greenbank resident Rick Abraham after Bronson spotted him examining records on the port computer. Abraham said he was offended by the comments and maintained that he had permission to be in the office unattended. In response to the commissioners’ comments, Abraham threatened to take legal action against the Port

of Coupeville, according to a letter he submitted to the port in March. Bronson, who heads the board of commissioners, read an apology letter into the official record during the Port of Coupeville’s April 10 meeting. In it, he and Weber expressed their regrets that Abraham was offended by certain remarks made about his unattended visit to the port office in February. “These remarks were made during a regular monthly public meeting of the board on Feb. 13, 2013 and may have left the impression with the public that your visit was improper,” Bronson said during the meeting. “Moreover, these remarks were made after you had left the meeting and you were not given the

opportunity to respond.” He said the board noted that Abraham provided a detailed explanation of his actions, and agrees that, because of the access granted by the port’s executive director, Abraham’s actions in February weren’t improper. Abraham was critical of letter sent to him by commissioners Bronson and Weber. “I thought it was actually pretty weak and disingenuous, but if there is no more damage, than I think the matter is resolved,” Abraham said during an interview Tuesday morning. The issue was never about security, Abraham said. The real issue was him questioning the judgment of the commissioners for the Port of Coupeville, Abraham said. He served on a volunTAX RECEIPT PROMOTE REUSE/RECYCLING

teer committee assigned the task of coming up with recommendations about how the Greenbank Farm should operate once the current agreement with the Greenbank Farm Management group expires. The commissioners for the Port of Coupeville approved a resolution this month basically formalizing its public records policies. The port is going to post times that public records will be made available, and those

hours will be posted at the door of the port office and on the port’s website, according to the resolution. The resolution also states that people requesting information may do so only by appointment, and “no member of the public may be granted unattended access to the port office without prior written approval of the board of commissioners.” The port will also charge a fee of 15 cents per page for photocopies of public records,

but no fee will be charged for making public records available for inspection. Bronson and Weber approved the resolution. There are currently two members sitting on the threemember board. Former commissioner Laura Blankenship announced her resignation last week. In a letter, Blankenship was critical of the Bronson’s and Weber’s comments about Abraham’s unattended perusal of port records.

Fledgling Freeland firm wins fireboat bid By JIM LARSEN Record editor

A new South Whidbey company with ties to Nichols Brothers Boat Builders landed its first contract Monday: the job of building a fire boat for South Whidbey Fire/ EMS. In a special meeting Monday at the Langley station, commissioners Bob Elliot, Mike Helland and Kenon Simmons unanimously handed the contract to the only bidder, North Cross Aluminum, owned by Freeland resident Tim Leonard. Although he voted yes, Elliot during the discussion period expressed concerns about letting a $500,000 contract go to a new business, even if it is local. Most of the money, 75 percent, will come through a Federal Emergency Management grant landed by the Port of South Whidbey, which wants the fire boat as a tenant for its expanded Langley Marina. South Whidbey Fire/EMS will be saddled with the other 25 percent of construction costs. “I know these gentlemen are capable of building boats,” Elliott said, referring to Leonard and Justin Nichols, son of Nichols Brothers CEO Matt Nichols and a long-time friend of Leonard’s. “What worries me is this will be the first one. I’m a little leery of that, I haven’t seen your product.” The bid design called for a two-hulled catamaran, something Nichols Brothers has specialized in for years, rather than a production line fireboat built by some other company.

Ben Watanabe / The Record

Mark Moore cuts aluminum for stairs to be installed in a multi-unit building in Seattle. The North Cross Aluminum employee will have lots of cutting and fabricating ahead of him with the recent award of a fire boat bid with South Whidbey Fire/EMS. The fire district has eyed a new boat for several years and had the design ready to go when the FEMA grant was confirmed earlier this year. It could be used for water rescues, fighting fires or evacuating people from shore. Leonard acknowledged the unusual design and said, “a custom platform always raises these questions,” and admitted the 32-foot long, 12-foot wide boat is “a stretch to the facilities I’ve got.” But he assured the commissioners that his team, which includes Nichols Brothers welding expert and boat foreman Alan Wright, can get the job done. Wright is currently fore-

man of the Nichols tug undergoing sea trials in Langley. He said the tug could leave as early as Friday, and indicated he will keep his day job at Nichols Brothers while helping Leonard with the fire boat project. “We all had to sit down and say can we build this boat,” Leonard told the commissioners. “Nobody wants pie on their face.” Justin Nichols seemed to exude confidence, however. “We’re committed to building it,” he said. Leonard was taking on his first full boat construction job and looked a little nervous when he said North Cross will have to spend $200,000 up front to purchase aluminum for construction and the power plant. After that will come electronics and firefighting equipment. And there’s a tight timeline. “The delivery date is January 1,” said Fire Chief Rusty Palmer, who had opposed the bid award at a meeting last week. The FEMA grant expires at the end of this year. Commissioner Simmons expressed confidence in the North Cross team, particular-

ly Nichols. “I talked to Justin today and he’s personally behind this project,” he said. “His assertion is these guys have the ability and have Nichols resources available.” Leonard assured the commissioners North Cross will be bonded to protect the taxpayers once the contract is signed. And he promised the Jan. 1 deadline will be met. “No matter how many hours we have to work we’re going to get it done on time,” he said. Leonard and Chief Palmer will work on contract details this week. A special meeting for the commissioners to sign the contract was set for 5 p.m. Monday, April 22 at the Freeland station. After the meeting, Nichols alluded to his family’s history of starting small and developing into a busy boat yard that builds tugs, catamarans and myriad other types of boats for customers around the world. “You build yourself into it,” Nichols said. For Leonard, this is his chance to start building.

Schulte leaving big shoes to fill publisher’s column

By Keven Graves

It was approximately 25 years ago, while I was working for the Whidbey News-Times as a reporter, that Rick Schulte came to Oak Harbor schools as assistant superintendent. That was in 1987. I had just graduated from Western Washington University and started my job at the newspaper late that summer. Schulte was named superintendent in 1993, toward the end of my first stint at the News-Times. He succeeded Roger Woehl. On the occasions I covered Oak Harbor schools, I had the opportunity to interview Schulte and always found him personable, low-key, engaging and transparent about what has happening in the district at any particular time. It seems I have returned to Whidbey in time to see Schulte step down as superintendent. Schulte, 64, is among the top three candidates for superintendent in Richland, Wash., a larger school district. If he is gets that job, Schulte will be moving on after this school year ends. If he doesn’t get the job in Richland, Schulte said he will leave at the end of the 201314 school year. After I ended my first stint at the News-Times, I had the pleasure of working for a couple of years as a contract employee producing the school district’s quarterly newsletter. I would meet with Schulte to plan for each newsletter. I enjoyed working for him as much as I enjoyed working with him. He was supportive and fair. During Schulte’s tenure, Oak Harbor has passed levies, built new schools, created a school of choice, relocated the school district administration offices, built impressive new bleachers and transformed Oak Harbor High School into a facility with offerings that rival a community college. Currently, he is steering the district through a dismal economic slump. Schulte said his experience overseeing school construction projects seemed to be of particular interest to the Richland School District. That makes sense. Schulte’s recommendation of Oak Harbor Assistant Superintendent Lance Gibbon as his successor is certainly an endorsement the school board should seriously See Schulte, A7

Letters to the editor Port of Coupeville

Lawsuit threat results in a written apology Editor, Port of Coupeville Commissioners Marshall Bronson and Benye Weber finally signed a letter of apology and retraction after they publicly accused me, behind my back, of an illegal and unethical review of public records. They made their accusations shortly after I questioned the adequacy of the port’s review of Greenbank Farm finances. Admitting that I did nothing wrong was the right thing for them to do, but it took my threat of a lawsuit to get them to do it. They damaged a taxpayer’s good name and reputation and wasted taxpayer’s money on legal advice — all because they made statements that they knew or should have known to be false. After Bronson and Weber made their

accusations, the Whidbey News-Times printed an opinion in support of the commissioners. The opinion, like the related front-page article, failed to mention that I was given permission to review records by the port’s executive director. Also, that he had instructed others, including the adjacent shop owner, to let me in the office when he was not there. The Whidbey News-Times reporter knew this before he wrote the story and it should have been mentioned in the opinion. Commissioner Bronson’s and Weber’s accusations were an inexcusable abuse of public office. The Whidbey News-Times coverage of the issue was one-sided and a disservice to its readers. I did nothing illegal, unethical and as Commissioners Bronson and Weber now admit, nothing improper. I looked at public records concerning public property. Evidently, it was public scrutiny of the port’s actions that the two commissioners did not like.

Rick Abraham Greenbank

Editor’s note: The Whidbey News-Times article did, in fact, report that Abraham had permission from the executive director to enter the office and review files in his role on a volunteer port committee. However, the question was how broad was that permission, and whether Abraham should be accessing port records without supervision after that committee’s work was completed. We stand by our coverage.

Former commissioner motivated by revenge? Editor, I was very surprised to read the accusation of “backroom scheming” in your piece last week.

Exposing ironies of trendy environmentalism Guest columnIST

By Todd myers

On April 22, in cities across America, some environmental activists will celebrate Earth Day, claiming only increased government control can protect the environment. Those celebrations will expose a couple ironies. First, many activists will arrive in a Toyota Prius, which has become the symbol of environmental consciousness. Ironically, however, the Prius is not a triumph of political planning but of the free market. In the 1990s, while California was requiring “zeroemission” vehicles, leaders at Toyota and Honda saw an opportunity to sell cars to people who want to spend less on gasoline, drive a car that emits less carbon dioxide, or both. Thus was born the hybrid vehicle. Even though it did not meet California’s regulation, it sold well, causing Golden State politicians to change the law. Jumping on the bandwagon, politicians began to give preferences to hybrids. Politicians did not lead, but followed the innovation of the free market. Most Prius drivers, however, don’t know that history and some will spend Earth Day opposing the freemarket policies that created the car they are so proud of. Many activists on the left will also spend Earth Day complaining that people who see the benefits of the free market don’t care about the environment. A look at the national political map, however, tells a different story. Across the country, the parts of the nation that most consistently

support free-market candidates are those surrounded by stunning natural beauty. The most vocal environmental activists — who are quick to lecture others about caring for nature — tend to live in cities, where nature has been thoroughly controlled, constrained and paved. How, we should ask, can environmental activists get away with this? How can they continue to advocate top-down policies that don’t help the environment? How can those who live where nature has been subjugated lecture those who live in it and with it every day? Environmentalism has become trendy and a way to show you are a good person, rather than actually helping the environment. Environmental activists and politicians choose government-mandated approaches not because they help the environment, but because the policies make them feel good about themselves and make them look good to others. The strategy is as simple as the fourth-grade playground: Build up your own environmental credentials by tearing others down and calling names. Rather than pointing out these ironies, however, free-market conservatives often fall into the trap of arguing there are no risks to the environment, fitting perfectly into the stereotype imposed on them by the left. Some conservatives fear that by admitting they care about the environment, they must then endorse a range of left-wing policies they oppose. In fact, a strong concern for the environment is part of believing in personal responsibility and the free market. Conservatives believe people have freedom, but must take responsibility for the impact they cause. If you commit a crime, you don’t get to blame society. A reason conservatives live near nature is that we

love to hike, hunt, fish and marvel at the awe-inspiring natural beauty with which our nation is so blessed. Finally, the free market is the greatest system for allocating scarce resources and doing more with less, both of which are at the heart of a true environmental ethic. Rather than forcing behavior change, conservatives promote technological solutions that respect the freedom of individuals while reducing environmental impact. Rather than falling for the latest trendy environmental policy, conservatives demand that the government measure success or failure. Better yet, we promote the creative competition that discovers options that we never imagined. As politicians spend billions on rail and buses that carry few people, the market is creating driverless, fuel-efficient cars that will more efficiently take people exactly where they want to go. For energy efficiency, clean air, clean water and smart resource use, the free market combines prosperity and innovation to successfully protect natural resources. April 22 may be a one-day event for some, but for those who embrace the free market and its push to do more with less, every day is Earth Day. Todd Myers is director of WPC’s Center for the Environment. He is one of the nation’s leading experts on free-market environmental policy. Todd is the author of the landmark 2011 book Eco-Fads: How the Rise of Trendy Environmentalism Is Harming the Environment and is designated a Wall Street Journal Expert panelist for energy and the environment.

Whomever the Oak Harbor School Board names superintendent, he or she will have big shoes to fill. Schulte has served the Oak Harbor School District well, and his legacy of leadership will be long remembered and appreciated. • Keven R.

had assumed that her experience with the Greenbank Farm would prove useful. However, I think the news reports have implied that her motive for election was revenge rather than a positive contribution to the port. Was that what she was doing? Why did she so often propose unnecessary changes to the port’s processes and procedures? Why did she vehemently defend an unauthorized entry into the Port of Coupeville’s computer after the work on the planning of the future of the Greenbank Farm wascompleted? The executive director, Jim Patton, has gone above and beyond the call of duty in trying to manage the two assets of the Port of Coupeville. He has consistently overcome all of the challenges presented such as water supply at the farm, storm damage to the wharf, repair of facilities, and coping with abandoned sailing vessels that sunk near the wharf. He has even under reported his hours to help maintain a balanced budget. He deserves the praise of the community. Neither he or the remaining commissioners deserved “backroom scheming.” Robert Yule Elphick Coupeville

Lawsuit

Tribe is justified in suing Oak Harbor Editor, It seems the previous city administrations arrogance has raised its ugly head again as the Native American tribes have decided to seek restitution in the desecration of

their ancestors. I find it amusing that the current mayor is upset that the Swinomish decided it is in the tribe’s best interest to file a claim, and that he believes what the city was doing would be sufficient and not result in a lawsuit. Guess the city now knows how the Native Americans felt when the treaties were signed and then duly broken by various government agencies over the years. Good luck in your defense, Oak Harbor. At least most of the perpetrators of this fiasco are no longer in office. Mike Van Voorst Oak Harbor

Praise

Likes newspaper’s positive changes Editor, Since you have a new executive editor and publisher on board I have noticed a vast improvement in the way the local news is now reported and printed. I am a local resident and have read the Whidbey News-Times for most of my residency here, but noticed that it was losing my interest in the past few months. But, undaunted as I am, I continued to purchase each issue. Now we have better coverage and more pictures, interesting stories and editorials, and lots of local news being presented in such a fashion that it’s much easier to read. Thank you-thank you to the person/persons who brought about this change. Connie White Oak Harbor

Whidbey General Hospital will join hundreds of healthcare organizations around the country May 1 when it starts converting to a computerized Electronic Medical Records (EMR) system. EMR will provide one comprehensive medical record, accessible to all providers, with the goal of making patient care safer, more effective and better quality. The idea is that when all providers can access the same information it lessens the likelihood of repetitive procedures and medication errors. Patients may also benefit from quicker service and less paperwork. The transition is not simply automating an existing recordkeeping system. EMR aims to improve virtually every aspect of healthcare, from scheduling an appointment to filling a prescription to going home after surgery. Moving from paper-based medical records, spread around in many different locations, to one comprehensive electronic record, is not a one-time event. Rather, it is an unfolding process that will occur at Whidbey General and affiliated clinics between now and the end of the year. The hospital has been preparing for this transition, but staff do expect some delays during the process. They advice patients who have appointments at the hospital in May, please plan on spending 15-30 minutes longer than usual. For more information go to www.whidbeygen.org

Wyman, Hall lead Whidbey runners in marathon Pair record best local finishes in event’s history By JIM WALLER Sports editor

Oak Harbor’s Andy Wyman and Megan Hall made historical runs in the 12th annual Whidbey Island Marathon Sunday. Wyman, 40, finished second among the men and Hall, 24, finished second among the women for the best performances ever for local runners in the event. Steve Dekoker, 32, of Seattle finished first out of 249, running 2:33:18. Dekoker was second in last year’s marathon and won the half marathon in 2010.

’Cats topple Terrace in soccer create several excellent scoring opportunities but were stopped by the Wildcat defense led by keeper Kevin Silveira. Mountlake Terrace, in one of its rare trips into Oak Harbor territory in the first half, threatened with 13 minutes left on a free kick from 20 yards out. The kick created a header that hit the right post, and the rebound shot clanged off the cross bar. Oak Harbor didn’t miss on its next chance when Caley Powers beat his man off the dribble with 11:30 left in the half. Just seconds later, Powers barely missed on another shot, but Oak Harbor did convert when Jensen took a pass from Dakota Powers in front of the goal and scored with 8:19 left before the break. With 24 minutes left in the match, the Hawks had a 25-yard free kick from straight on. Silveira stopped the shot but couldn’t hang on; Terrace’s rebound shot also missed. With two minutes left, Silveira got

The fight for a spot in the district soccer playoffs is heating up, and Oak Harbor took a positive step in securing one of the berths with a 2-0 win over Mountlake Terrace Friday at Wildcat Memorial Stadium. The top three teams in the two Wesco 3A divisions earn automatic district slots, and the Wildcats moved into a tie with Marysville Getchell (3-4, 3-7) for second in the North, just ahead of fourth-place Marysville-Pilchuck (2-3-1, 3-4-2). Oak Harbor (3-4, 4-5) squares off with Getchell in Marysville at 7:30 p.m. Thursday. In the win over Mountlake Terrace (1-6, 2-7-1), Oak Harbor received goals from Caley Powers and Matt Jensen and two assists from Dakota Powers. The Wildcats dominated the match as most of the game was played at the Terrace end of the field. The Hawks, however, did

Oak Harbor threatened all night, with Gavin Stewart’s narrow miss on a header with 4:50 remaining the best chance to add a third goal. Coach Brian Thompson said, “I’m really happy with how we played. We played more to the outside flanks like we should; we wanted to have numbers up in the scoring end of the field. Dakota Powers and Gavin Stewart did a really good job on our outsides.” With seven matches left the playoff picture is far from focused, but Thompson sees the best to come: “We haven’t peaked yet.”

In the second half, Luke Pelant’s header went just wide of the left post, then Nathan Kircher beat two defenders on the right wing and fed Josh Wilsey for a short shot that was “blocked on a great defensive effort by Lakewood.” Next up for the Wolves (0-9, 0-10) is a home nonleague match with Friday Harbor at 5 p.m. today.

Guard dog euthanized after attacking woman By JIM LARSEN

South Whidbey Record Editor

BEN WATANABE / THE RECORD

Patrick Kent waits for the Holmes Harbor Sewer District’s approval to purchase the Freeland golf course. The greens were closed for three years and may open in May.

Holmes Harbor Golf Course sale delayed for review By BEN WATANABE South Whidbey Record

Reopening of the Holmes Harbor Golf Course will have to wait a while longer. Holmes Harbor Sewer District board sent its purchase and sale agreement back to its lawyer for review and amendment, even though potential golf course leasee-operator Patrick Kent is waiting in the wings to step in. Delaying the deal was a clause about leasing or subleasing the course’s pro shop and maintenance facility. Fairly certain in the contract are the $200,000 purchase of the fairways and greens by the sewer district from owners Kevin Hanchett and Mike Cooper. “We can justify owning the grass,” said Stan Walker, sewer district chairman. “We can’t justify owning the pro shop and maintenance facility.” Buying the greens is necessary for the sewer district, which irrigates the course with its treated wastewater. When the fairways are allowed to grow too long and are not maintained, the drainage can compromise the sewer system. Recent wet weather has some of the district’s holding ponds near capacity, though a few others remain mostly drained, so there was little risk of an overflow. “Owning 50 acres of grass

is a nightmare,” Walker said. “It’s essentially 100 lawns..” Those are lawns that Kent, a 25-year-old Tukwila resident, wants to tend. Golf runs in his family. He played collegiately in Denver, his parents play and his sister is on the golf team at Washington State University. When the subject of the golf course’s availability came up at work, he decided to take a swing at it. “With my background in business and background in golf, it was the right opportunity,” Kent said. During the sewer district’s meeting April 11, Kent briefly addressed the board. He told board members he drafted a three-year business plan and dispelled rumors he has stakes in other golf courses Kent said this is his first attempt at operating a golf course. Running the course, he

estimates, will cost $250,000. Without the clubhouse to sell food and drinks at a high profit, bringing in lots of golfers is the key to a viable business. He wants the course to be a “practice facility,” and South Whidbey’s most popular golf destination. As a public course, Kent said he plans to keep greens fees lower than previous operators. “The goal from a community perspective is to be a place where people can play golf, be outdoors and have fun,” Kent said. “Our primary goal is to get the people of Whidbey Island to play here.” Leasing the greens from the sewer district will cost $1 annually, but the pro shop and maintenance facility leases, either from Hanchett or the sewer district, will each cost $500 per month. Closing of the sale is also contingent on an easement issue.

The owner of the dog that bit and chewed a young Clinton woman had his pet euthanized by a veterinarian last week. Carol Barnes, Island County Animal Control office, said the dog was declared dangerous and was ordered euthanized. The owner, Elisabetta Poggi-Blethen who lives on Deer Lake Road, brought in the dog herself, Barnes said. Alex, described as an adult male guard dog of shepherd / husky mix, was chained to a wire runner in his yard. Two pups he sired were also chained. Amanda Gates, 19, was housesitting March 18 and noticed the pups were tangled. When she tried to straighten them out, Alex pulled his chain from the runner and attacked Gates. Gates was knocked down and had to crawl and stagger to the road, with bites bleeding in her scalp and others on her arm and back. A good Samaritan driver stopped to help. There was also a nurse in the car. Driver Scott Learned described for The Record what he witnessed . “We both saw this girl on the opposite side of the road moving toward us, waving her hand; she was crying out for help,” he said. The nurse, Sydney Anderson, tried to comfort the young woman and tend

to her wounds as the dog circled around. “The dog came right at me on Deer Lake Road,” Learned said. “I kicked it right in the nose and it, fortunately, left the scene.” Learned said the extent of Gates’ injuries weren’t immediately evident. “She was very pale, but it wasn’t until Sydney had her lie down that she saw blood running down Amanda’s neck. There were several large bites to the back of her head and other bites to her back, arm and legs. Sydney tended to her wounds, all the while reassuring her that she would be all right. An EMS soon arrived and provided extra help.” Anderson, who spent 29 years as an ER nurse at Harborview Medical Center and Hospital in Seattle, described the incident as “just a terrifying event.” “She was so pale, and then after we laid her down on the road there was all that blood. ... I saw these great big bites on her head bleeding all over.” Anderson was particularly taken by Gates’ apologetic attitude throughout the ordeal. “I’m so sorry I’m causing all these problems for you,” the young woman told Anderson as pressure was applied to her head wounds. It wasn’t until Monday that Anderson was able to speak with Gates. They had a good chat over the phone and made plans to meet. “It’s a happy ending to that

story,” the nurse said. Gates said she was happy to hear from Anderson so she could thank her personally. As for Alex’s fate, she expressed remorse but resignation. “It sucks,” she said. “Dogs aren’t born bad naturally, but I do believe it (euthanasia) had to happen to protect others.” She said she will always have scars on her head and arm, but overall she’s much improved. Charges against PoggiBlethen are still pending, including citations for having an unlicensed dog, allowing it off premises and not being in control of the animal. Each charge carries a maximum penalty of 90 days in jail or $1,000 fine, or both. Poggi-Blethen did not return a message left by The Record seeking comment. The two growing pups, offspring of Axel named Sprocket and Tazzy, will remain with their owner. Barnes said she isn’t optimistic about their future. “We have behavior concerns.”

Surprise Boston trip results in fear, chaos

REQUEST CONTINUED FROM A1

By RON NEWBERRY Staff reporter

Nancy Breeden didn’t tell her sister she was coming to Boston. Breedan pretended to be a housekeeper, knocking on her sister Vicky King’s hotel room door Sunday morning. Breeden, from Oak Harbor, took a red-eye flight from Sea-Tac Airport to be present for her sister’s first appearance in the Boston Marathon. King opened the door of her hotel room and broke into tears. “I totally surprised her,” Breeden said. Some 30 hours later, the sisters were in a tearful embrace again, reunited at a city park. However, this time it after a horrifying ordeal after being separated for more than three and a half chaotic hours following two explosions that shook the Boston Marathon Monday. Breeden, 47, was running behind a barrier and cheering on her eldest sister less than a quarter-mile from the finish when the first explosion went off near the finish line. Before Breeden could process what was going on, she heard the second explosion 15 seconds later about a block away. She could see panic in people’s faces and smoke from both blasts. “It was chaos at that point,” she said. Ultimately, the sisters escaped the tragedy that gripped Boston unharmed but were emotionally drained from experiencing the shock, fear, sadness and confusion that followed. Breeden was standing with her brother-inlaw Dennis King, from Modesto, Calif., waiting for Vicky at about the 25-mile mark of the 26.2-mile race when they spotted her. They followed her for about a mile, rooting her on. Breeden remembers hearing the first explosion shortly after runners rounded their final turn on to Boylston Street. It wasn’t just the sound of the blast or the sight of the smoke that left Breeden feeling that something was terribly wrong. She recalled seeing “terror” in the face of a police officer who approached Vicky and other runners and pointed them in the opposite direction. “He said, ‘This is not a joke,’” Breeden said. “’You guys need to run in that direction as fast as you can!’ “He told my sister, ‘Run back! Run back!’” At that point, Breeden and her brotherin-law were separated from Vicky as both parties were sent in opposite directions at an intersection. Breeden said she heard the second blast but knew her sister was OK because she still had her in sight. What followed was three and a half hectic hours of trying to find each other in an unfamiliar city and not knowing if more danger was coming. The situation was compounded by widespread cell service failure, as well as the fact Breeden’s phone battery eventually died and

her sister wasn’t carrying a phone. Breeden, co-manager for Thrive Community Fitness in Oak Harbor, was flooded with text messages from co-workers and got a call amidst the chaos from her husband John back home. “He said, ‘I saw the news. Are you OK?’” Breeden said. Vicky, 58, and other runners waited at a city park to reunite with loved ones and friends. Her son, Brian King, and his girlfriend Alisha Fitzgerald, also came to Boston to see her race. Breeden said her sister told her that a homeless woman saw her shivering and gave her own jacket to wear. Another person let her borrow a cell phone to get word out where she was waiting. That message eventually got to Breeden. When she got to the park three and a half hours after being separated, she and her sister hugged and cried. Vicky’s first Boston Marathon stopped exactly .12 miles from the finish. A gadget she carried showed she had traveled 26.08 miles before a police officer ordered her to change course. “That look on his face, I won’t forget that,” Breeden said. Breeden said that she normally would have stayed home and participated in the Whidbey Island Half-Marathon, which took place Sunday, but she wanted to surprise her sister in Boston. Instead, they both were witness to a cruel surprise. Breeden said she was grateful she was spared the bloody sight of those who were killed and injured. It also wasn’t lost on her that another block and she and her sister would have been near the site of the second explosion. Breeden was standing on the same side of Boylston Street as both blasts. Breeden said her first trip to the Boston Marathon would likely be her last. “Lives were lost,” Breeden said. “That really hit home.” Whidbey News-Times reporter Ron Newberry can be contacted at 360-675-6611, ext. 5070, or rnewberry@whidbeynewsgroup. com

the biggest problem facing the facility, he said. “My lieutenants are saying, ‘De, we can’t do this much longer,’” Dennis said. “I’m really concerned how much longer I can go on,” he said. Adding corrections officers are just the top of the list. He also cited a need for new computers, software upgrades, videocourtroom equipment and a new fingerprint identification system. Island County Sheriff Mark Brown called the situation at the jail an “ongoing organizational nightmare” and credits Dennis with holding the operation together despite his limited resources. Last June, the Island County Law and Justice Council recommended the board move forward with a ballot measure that would increase sales tax by three-tenths of 1 percent, generating about $2.2 million per year. The board was unwilling to support the request at the time, citing a host of issues. There was discussion about whether a property tax would be more appropriate and others worried there was insufficient time to prepare for a successful fall ballot measure. The delay ensured that the law-and-justice community would not get financial relief for more than a year because funding from a successful ballot measure doesn’t start to flow in until the following year. If the board doesn’t put the issue before voters this fall, a 2014 ballot approved by the public would not result in additional funding until 2015. Timeliness is an issue and a serious discussion needs to begin soon, Banks said during the recent presentation to the commissioners. “What the Law and Justice Council really needs to know is where the board is on this issue,” Banks said. During a later interview, Banks confirmed that the Law and Justice Council has yet to make another formal recommendation to the board and that any decision will likely be different from the one in 2012. First and foremost, it would probably propose a property tax as opposed to a sales tax, he said. A sales tax wouldn’t raise enough money, and the funds it would raise would need to shared with neighboring municipalities.

Island County Jail Administrator De Dennis leads the Island County Commissioners on a tour of the jail Monday morning. Banks said the funding needed is about $2.6 million. Most would go to the Sheriff’s Office to hire additional police and corrections officers — about $2.3 million — and the rest would be split among the prosecutor’s office and the courts. Banks, the council’s co-chairman, said the group would also likely propose a sunset of three to five years. That would give the public the chance to reconsider and allow the board to easily and permanently dispense with the tax should the county’s financial situation change significantly. But voters must be given the option of approving or rejecting a measure first, and that can only happen if the commissioners give the green light. Banks said the clock is ticking. “If they are going to take action, it needs to be soon.”

Seat open on Whidbey General board Whidbey Island Public Hospital District Board of Commissioners accepted the resignation of District 4 Commissioner, Dr. Roger Case last week. We extend gratitude for the years of service he provided to the district and the residents of Whidbey Island, said Anne Tarrant, board president. The district is accepting applications from civic-minded and capable individuals with a business or health-care background to fill District 4’s vacant position. District 4 includes all of the Seaplane base south of Crescent Harbor Drive, the State Highway 20 corridor through Oak Harbor, and the east side of Oak Harbor. A Public Hospital District is a municipal entity formed within a defined geographic area to provide health care services to

community residents and others in need. The geographic area for WGH is Whidbey Island. Washington state law requires that elected boards of commissioners oversee the general conduct of hospital district affairs. They are charged with fiduciary oversight and to ensure the quality of care delivered. This is done through the CEO and through board committees. Anyone interested in applying for the position, should send a resume to: Board chair, Whidbey General Hospital, 101 North Main Street, Coupeville, WA 98239. Application should be submitted by May 10.

When Claire Reed learned that the community pool in Oak Harbor needed a little help sprucing up its grounds, her ears perked up. Bill Walker, director of the North Whidbey Park & Recreation District, had

Bill Walker had a good feeling Claire Reed would be a good place to turn for some gardening advice. He wound up getting more than advice from the former park district commissioner. inquired with Sally Maylor, a friend and member of the Oak Harbor Garden Club, about how to tackle a barren garden bed in the pool’s front parking lot. The beds were in dire need of care. Maylor suggested he talk to Reed, the civic improve-

ment chairwoman for the garden club. He was glad he did. “It turns out Claire has a little fondness in her heart here,” Walker said. REED HAS deep roots in the parks district. While serving on the board of commissioners three decades ago, she was among those who worked to get the pool built. John Vanderzicht Memorial Pool opened in 1983. Thirty years later, Reed was back on the grounds, offering a $1,500 grant to beautify the pool’s garden beds on behalf of the Oak Harbor Garden Club. The first five purple rhododendrons were planted Friday. “It’s wonderful,” Reed said of the opportunity to help. “I remember how badly we wanted to have landscaping (in the 1980s).” “We didn’t have any money.” THE SHRUB and flower beautification project is the latest of many that the Oak Harbor Garden Club has tackled in the community over the years. Oak Harbor Garden Club takes on a handful of projects every year, funding them through its plant sale in May, garden tour and tea in July and wreath sales in November and December. kids 10 and under.

Claire Reed, center, of the Oak Harbor Garden Club works with North Whidbey Park & Recreation District director Bill Walker and maintenance assistant Crystal Nelson on a beautification project in front of the pool in Oak Harbor Friday. Wreath sales is the biggest money-maker for the club, Reed said. “A portion of the proceeds go to civic improvement,” Reed said. “Our mission is to improve our city one small area at a time.” THIS IS a special time for the Oak Harbor Garden Club, which is celebrating its 90th year. The group is still going strong with more than 100 members, including Judith Juno, president of the Washington State Federation of Garden Clubs. “Ninety years and still growing,” reads a slogan on a bag carried by Reed. The club also teamed up with the city of Oak Harbor recently to help tidy up the Flintstone Park area along Bayshore Drive downtown.

State’s poet laureate to read at Oak Harbor Library By RON NEWBERRY Staff reporter

Mary Campbell was attending a women’s retreat in the mountains of north central Washington State in February when she heard Kathleen Flenniken read poetry and got an idea. “I asked her to come and visit us in Oak Harbor, and she agreed,” Campbell said. Campbell is the managing librarian at Oak Harbor

Library. Flenniken will be the library’s special guest Thursday at 3 p.m. Flenniken, the 2012-14 Washington State Poet Laureate, will read poetry and be able to cross Island County off her list all at the same time. In an effort to bring poets and poetry to Flenniken’s goal is to bring poets and poetry to all 39 counties in the state before her two-year appointment as

state poet laureate ends in February. The public is invited to attend. “I think it’s a really great gift for Oak Harbor,” Campbell said. “I was just writing her a note thanking her for making Oak Harbor one of her stops.” Flenniken, who was raised in Richland and lives in Seattle, has a unique educational background with engineering degrees from Washington

State University and the University of Washington, as well as a Masters in Fine Arts degree from Pacific Lutheran University. She is president of Floating Bridge Press, a nonprofit organization dedicated to Washington poets, and teaches poetry writing to students of all ages. Flenniken has published two books and maintains a poet laureate blog, The Far Field. Her first book, Famous,

won the Prairie Schooner Book Prize in Poetry, and was a finalist for a Washington State Book Award. Her second collection, Plume, is about the Hanford nuclear site and recently was chosen for the Pacific Northwest Poetry series. “I just thought she was delightful,” Campbell said of meeting Flenniken. “She’s a wonderful poet. She’s also a wonderful advocate of poets who are alive now and poet-

ry from all eras. She’s very inspiring.” It is not the first time the state’s poet laureate has come to Oak Harbor Library. Sam Green spoke at the library in recent years, Campbell said. For more information about Flenniken’s appearance, Oak Harbor Library may be reached at 360-6755115.

don’t want these growing into each other,” she said. REED SAID that she believes some of the trees and shrubs on the grounds were planted by the late Hal Ramaley, the former elementary school principal known for doing beautification projects around Oak Harbor. A park downtown is named after him. Oak Harbor Garden Club has focused much of its efforts redoing areas at Hal Ramaley Park, adding hundreds of shrubs, perennials, bulbs, fertilizer and mulch, Reed said. The club installed a gazebo there in 2010. DURING 2011, the club designed 26 planters for Pioneer Way and assisted in planting them. The latest project at the pool is ongoing. Club mem-

Mayor CONTINUED FROM A1 mayor wasted huge amounts of money by firing a series of people in administrative positions, which meant paying huge severance packages. The separation costs for the employee terminations are estimated at about $500,000. “The mayor spent us into this big hole and now he’s expecting everyone else to pay for it,” she said. Hizon said the insurance is “life saving” for her. Dudley, however, argues that neither the mayor nor council members should receive medical benefits since they are part-time employees. No other part-time employees in the city receive medical insurance, he said. “My wife is going to be pissed, but it’s the right thing to do,” Dudley said. He said his wife loves the insurance because it covers “absolutely everything.” Almberg and Hizon said they work full-time hours as council members, though the positions are officially parttime. Dudley describes the city’s health insurance, provided by the Association of Washington Cities, as a “Cadillac plan.” It’s the best plan available through the association. The city picks up the entire tab for the employees’ premiums, plus a large percentage of the premiums for the employees’ spouses and children. The city will spend $1.9 million on health-care premiums this year; that amount increases by 11 percent each year, according to the mayor.

Coupeville gearing up for kindergarten registration Coupeville Elementary School is hosting a parent information night for incoming kindergartners for the 2013-14 school year. Incoming kindergartners must be 5 years old by Aug. 31. The informational evening takes place from 6:30-8 p.m. Thursday, May 16, in the elementary school’s library. The meeting will discuss requirements prior to the school year starting including registration, vaccinations and transportation. Pre-registration starts Monday, April 22. For questions call Joyce Roethle at 360-678-4551.

Dudley said he is looking for ways to cut the city’s costs, whether it means moving to a less expensive plan or requiring employees to pay a portion of the premiums. The city of Oak Harbor’s insurance costs are slightly above the average for cities in the state with populations between 15,000 and 29,999, according to statistics from the Association of Washington Cities. Oak Harbor paid $618 in health-care premiums each month, on average, for each employee during 2012. Average cost among the 26 cities of similar size is $579. For an employee with a family of four, the city paid $1,503 in premiums, which was exactly average. Deanna Krell, of the Association of Washington Cities, said she gathered the statistics by asking cities for premium information for the largest group of employees, which may be a unionized or non-unionized body. The plans chosen by the smaller employees groups could have different amounts. Hizon said the employees save the city about $60,000 a year in health-care costs through the volunteer efforts of a “Wellness Committee.” “It’s really incredible insurance and the employees have, understandably, grown very attached to it,” she said. Dudley said he thinks it’s

Oak Harbor Mayor Scott Dudley hands over a check equating to 20 percent of his salary. He donates money back to the city each payday. unusual for council members to receive health-care benefits; he’s not aware of any other city that pays for council member’s health insurance, let alone the entire premium. The value of the health insurance more than doubles what the city spends on each council member. Association of Washington Cities reports that 38 of 283 cities in the state reported paying for part or all the health insurance benefits for an elected official or officials.

The number includes all the cities that only offer insurance to mayors; the association didn’t have numbers on how many cities fund council members’ insurance. Dudley said he will propose that the city convene a salary commission to consider changes in salaries for elected officials. He said he hopes that the salaries will be decreased. While increases in compensation can go into effect immediately, decreases may not go into effect until the
