Council re-signs ‘expensive’ Weed six more months By JESSIE STENSLAND Staff reporter

Oak Harbor’s well-liked but expensive interim city attorney will continue on the job for at least another six months.

Oak Harbor City Council unanimously approved a contract extension last Tuesday night with Grant Weed, an attorney with the the Snohomish law firm Weed, Graafstra and Benson. Under the terms of the contract, the city will pay Weed a retainer of $6,400 a month for 40 hours of work. He’ll earn $170 an hour for any work beyond the 40 hours. City Administrator Larry Cort said Weed cost the city an average of $18,654 a month over the past 10 months. That equates to about $222,000 a year. “You are just so darn expensive,” Councilwoman Tara Hizon told Weed. City leaders have few options. After Mayor Scott Dudley fired two city attorneys during the first six months of his administration, the city has had difficulty finding See WEED, A8

Recycling kicked to the curb in a 2-1 county vote

Preserving history

Forever fund awards record grants for 13 Central Whidbey properties By JUSTIN BURNETT Staff reporter

A community-driven program aimed at preserving historic buildings in Ebey’s Landing National Historical Reserve kicked off its third year with some recordbreaking funding. Reserve officials announced the award of $100,000 from the Ebey’s Forever Fund to 13 property owners on Central Whidbey. That’s the most money paid in a single year. It’s also the largest number of recipients in a single year. “It’s fantastic,” said Reserve Manager Mark Preiss. “Of course we’re tickled.” Some of the most recognizable buildings getting help this year include the 1934-built Comstock Barn, located near the intersection of Engle and Hill roads; the Captain Whidbey Inn, built in 1907; the old San de Fuca Store, off State Highway 20; and the old county Courthouse, 1855, located along Madrona Way.

The work to be done will vary by project, but they generally include repairs ranging from roof replacement and stabilization work to deck replacement and general maintenance. Though still relatively new, the program has grown quickly in popularity and effectiveness. In its first two years alone, the program assisted 17 property owners and raised nearly $130,000 in donations for contributing structures. That success is evidence as alternative funding programs which leverage community support are not only effective but are a demonstration of the public’s commitment to historic preservation, said Preiss. “Clearly, they recognize the importance of community involvement in these heritage resources.” “The money raised speaks for itself,” he said. The program began in late See EBEY’S FOREVER, A8

The Island County commissioners delivered a bit of irony this week when they killed a curbside recycling program on Earth Day. The board hammered the final nail into the coffin of the controversial program aimed at bringing curbside service to Langley and unincorporated areas of Whidbey Island. The vote Monday was 2-1. Republican commissioners Kelly Emerson and Jill Johnson voted to end the planned service while Commissioner Helen Price Johnson, a Democrat, voted to continue it. The vote effectively rescinded an ordinance the board adopted in December. “Shame on you,” chanted Coupeville resident Paula Spina loudly, moments after the vote to end recycling service. Though the meeting was not yet finished, the mantra was picked up by others in the room, drowning out any possibility of further action. Approximately 50 people attended the hearing. After the room was cleared, heated discussion among those on opposite sides of the issue continued in the hallway. Monday’s public hearing and the subsequent vote took place during the board’s first regularly scheduled evening meeting. Curbside recycling was under discussion for the past five years.

Drug Take Back on Saturday By JESSIE STENSLAND Staff reporter

Law enforcement officials on Whidbey Island are again asking residents to turn in unwanted medication. Oak Harbor Police, the Island County Sheriff’s Office and the Coupeville Marshal’s Office are holding their fifth “Drug Take Back.” The event is 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. Saturday, April 27, at three island locations. Goal of the program is to get unwanted medicine out of people’s homes in order to prevent accidental poisonings, drug abuse and drugseeking burglaries. Safe disposal also keeps hazardous medicines from polluting the

environment. Oak Harbor police will accept medications in the front lobby of the police department. The Coupeville marshal will accept medications at Town Hall. The Island County sheriff will be at the South Precinct on East Harbor Road in Freeland. Sheriff Mark Brown said the emphasis of the program is on prescription pain pills, but that any type of unused or expired prescription medicine are accepted. There’s definitely a need. Hundreds of pounds of pills from Whidbey residents were collected and sent to the Drug Enforcement Agency for destruction.

Coupeville Marshal Lance Davenport said a cancer patient’s family brought in seven pounds of medication for disposal last year. Another man surrendered a bag full of pills that dated back to the late 1960s. “It really dawned on me, having small children, what a danger it is to have unnecessary medication around the house,” he said. Oak Harbor Police Chief Ed Green said he saw cases in which drug addicts look through obituaries for people who’ve died from a disease likely to require pain pills and then burglarize those people’s homes. “You really want to get them out of your house.”

Homeowners push to reduce speed on roads

Maui Gate to close during Holland Happening parade

By JUSTIN BURNETT

The Maui Avenue gate to the Seaplane Base at Naval Air Station Whidbey Island will be closed during Saturday’s Holland Happening parade until 1:30 p.m. The closure allows for safe staging of the parade that is part of the Holland Happening parade lineup, according to a release from NAS Whidbey. Holland Happening, the festival that celebrates Oak Harbor’s Dutch heritage, takes place April 27-28. The parade starts at 11 a.m. on April 27. Torpedo Road gate will be open for access to the Seaplane Base during the time that the Maui Avenue gate is closed.

Two arterials on Central and South Whidbey may see soon significant speed limit reductions. Last week, the Island County Commissioners gave traffic engineers the green light to conduct detailed speed studies on Patmore Road, located just a few miles southeast of Coupeville, and the eastern half of Classic Road, between Greenbank and Freeland. Homeowners recently submitted separate but formal petitions requesting the commissioners agree to lower the existing speed limits on both roads from 50 mph to 35 mph for safety reasons. “There is no way it should be 50 mph,” said Cynthia Ellison, concerning Classic Road. “There are just too many walkers, driveways; just too many close calls.” The petition requests the reduction be applied on the .75-mile section of road between State Highway 525 and Resort Road. Ellison lives on Resort Road, the intersecting and Eastern end of Classic Road. She worked on the petition signed by 18 people. Ellison said she witnessed several close calls and worries someone will be hurt or killed. “It’s just too dangerous.” Gail Allen expressed similar sentiments about Patmore Road, which connects Highway 20 and Fort Casey Road. She’s lived on the tiny two-lane arterial street for years and questions the current speed limit. “What’s the hurry,” Allen asked? “It’s not a freeway.” Allen said the rural and hilly road is often

Staff reporter

traveled by heavy farm equipment. Many homeowners have horses, and the road goes past Rhododendron Park where there’s a practice field for Little League. “50 mph is too fast.” Others said they worry about occasional use as a detour route for accidents on Highway 20. There are hard-to-see driveways that some complain become nearly invisible at night. The Patmore petition, signed by 36 residents, seeks the reduction along the entire two-mile road. Speed limits on county roads are set by ordinance. A set process must be followed before the commissioners will make changes. A petition showing community support is a first step. Subsequently, county traffic engineers study a road to see if reductions are warranted according to nationally-accepted engineering standards. Public Works Director Bill Oakes said some speed and traffic data is collected on a semi regular basis for all county roads. Those reports suggest additional testing will likely justify a reduction on Patmore but probably not for the entire two-mile stretch, he said. “I’m not sure the data will support that, but there may be some changes we can make.” As for Classic Road, lowering the speed limit may be more difficult to justify as it’s straight with good sight distance. The county won’t know for sure until more detailed studies are performed. Those tests probably won’t be completed until May or June. Results will dictate the department’s recommendation to the commissioners.

Denture maker charged with biting into his patient’s wallets Police, Attorney General’s Office investigated By JESSIE STENSLAND Staff reporter

The former owner of Oak Harbor Denture Center was charged this month with bilking seven of his clients by collecting payments and never providing dentures, according to court documents. Oak Harbor Police Department and the state Attorney General’s Office investigated Kevin Kowalski, 43, of Burlington in 2008 after a series of patients reported fraud. The victims said they paid Kowalski for dentures they never received or that didn’t

fit right. In some cases, clients said they received dirty, used dentures. Several of the clients were unable to eat for months and lost dramatic amounts of weight, according to the Oak Harbor police. On April 12, prosecutors charged Kowalski in Island County Superior Court with seven counts of theft in the first degree. He faces up to a year and seven months in prison if convicted of all the charges. Senior Deputy Prosecutor Eric Ohme said the state Attorney General’s Office held the file on Kowalski until last year. The state AG declined to charge Kowalski and forwarded the case to the Island County prosecuting attorney’s office.

Ohme said the Attornet General’s Office held onto the Medicare-related cases. Detective Carl Seim wrote the investigative report on the case in 2011. His report details seven victims who lost between $1,870 to $2,400. Seim wrote that Kowalski demanded payment up front, then he would cancel appointments and make excuses for not finishing the dentures. Oak Harbor police originally arrested Kowalski in 2008 after receiving complaints from more than 30 Whidbey residents, while many more potential victims were identified in Skagit County. At the time, Seim told the Whidbey News-Times that there were potentially more than 100 victims.

Man accused of hitting woman, stealing laptop computer at motel By JESSIE STENSLAND Staff reporter

An Oak Harbor man entered the hotel room where his brother was staying with a woman, stole a laptop computer and punched the woman, according to court documents. Prosecutors charged Colt J. Borgeson, 26, in Island County Superior Court April 15 with burglary in the second degree, assault in the fourth degree, violation of a court order, theft in the third degree and resisting arrest. Officer Larry Ferguson with the Oak Harbor Police Department went to the Queen Anne Motel on April 10 in response to a report

that Borgeson had punched a woman. The alleged victim, who was bleeding from the mouth, said she and her boyfriend were staying at the hotel for several days. She said Borgeson, her boyfriend’s older brother, walked into the room without permission and demanded some paperwork. The woman demanded that he leave, but he refused. She left and went to a store. When she returned, she discovered that Borgeson had taken her laptop and was leaving in her car. She told him to give it back, but he punched her and left, according to the officer’s report. Borgeson later resisted

arrest when officer confronted him at a bus stop, Ferguson wrote. Borgeson was arrested last year in another case involving his brother. He allegedly punched his brother, possibly breaking his nose, during an argument over who has “the better life and the most stuff,” court documents said. Borgeson faces up to a year in jail if convicted of the charges against him.

Case resigns from hospital board, health department Candidates being sought to fill vacant seat in June; election in Nov. By Nathan Whalen Staff reporter

For decades, Roger Case tended to the health of Island County residents. He recently announced he is resigning as Island County health officer and commissioner for Whidbey General Hospital. Those resignations become effective in June. “I think it’s time for me to go,” Case said Thursday. “I’m 78 years old and it’s time to do something else.” He has served as Island County health officer for 22 years and was a commissioner for nearly 18 years. His resignation from the Whidbey General Hospital Board takes place six months before the end of his third term. Resigning early gives hospital officials a chance to find a replacement, Case said. “He was a great mentor for me as I stepped in as president,” hospital Commissioner Anne Tarrant said. “We will miss him.” She said Case offers a wealth of knowledge — from his work as county health

After he retires, Case said he plans to travel to the South Pacific. He has his eyes on New Zealand and Guam. Whidbey General Hospital officials are looking for someone to fill Case’s seat on the board. The person selected will serve at least until the November election is certified. Whoever wins the November election will fill for the full term. Interested people must live within District 4 boundaries, which is the Seaplane Base south of Crescent Harbor Drive, the State Highway 20 corridor through Oak Harbor and the east side of Oak Harbor. Tarrant said she hopes whomever is appointed will run for the seat in November. Applications can be sent to “Board Chairwoman,” Whidbey General Hospital, 101 N. Main St., Coupeville, WA 98239. The commissioners could appoint a replacement during their monthly meeting set for 5 p.m., Monday, May 13, in the Whidbey General Hospital conference room.

Bookkeeper accused of stealing $200,000 Investigator looks for more victims By JESSIE STENSLAND Staff reporter

An investigator is looking for any groups that employed a bookkeeper accused of embezzling large amounts of money from two Whidbey Island organizations. Lt. Mike Hawley with the Island County Sheriff’s Office said he’s investigating Wendy Lyn Murphy, 50, an Oak Harbor resident, for allegedly stealing more than $200,000 from the Hillcrest Village Water Co. and Rolling Hills-Glencairn Community Service. Murphy allegedly embezzled the money while she was the bookkeeper for these organizations and he’s concerned there could be more victims, Hawley said.

“If she’s been working as a bookkeeper for your organization, you may want to do an audit,” he said. Anyone with information about the current cases or other possible cases should contact Hawley at 678-4422. Murphy isn’t charged with a crime as the investigation is ongoing, said Hawley. Hawley obtained a search warrant last week for bank account information. According to Hawley’s report for the search warrant, officials at the Hillcrest Village Water Community said the alleged theft occurred in March. Board members fired Murphy, the longtime bookkeeper, on March 1 after the “probable embezzlement” was discovered, the report states. A new bookkeeper audited the financial records back to 2009 and reportedly found that $168,000 was missing,

according to the report. The report alleges that Murphy wrote a series of unauthorized checks from the Hillcrest account to her husband, herself and the Rolling Hills-Glencairn account, apparently in an attempt to hide the thefts. Hawley contacted Rolling Hills officials and learned they had started investigating Murphy. The board president sent out a letter to members in March stating that officials believed that individual accounts were not affected. Between 2009 and 2012, Murphy allegedly made more than $50,000 in unauthorized credit card purchases on Rolling Hill’s Visa card, Hawley wrote. Some of the unauthorized charges were cash advances at casinos. Murphy did not return a call for comment on the accusations.

Firefighters with North Whidbey Fire and Rescue and the Oak Harbor Fire Department tackle a training fire at an old farmhouse on North Whidbey Saturday.

Old Whidbey farmhouse goes up in flames for firefighter training By JUSTIN BURNETT Staff reporter

North Whidbey residents may have seen a house burning in a rural area just north of Oak Harbor Saturday. North Whidbey Fire and Rescue and the Oak Harbor Fire Department conducted a training burn on an old farmhouse on the Northwest corner of East Sleeper and North Taylor roads. The exercise began at 7 a.m. and ran to about 4 p.m. Fire Chief Marv Koorn

said the district tries to do two or three training burns a year because they provide vital experience for beginning and veteran firefighters alike. “You can’t get any better training than a live fire at an actual house,” Koorn said. “Best training you can get,” he said. While the entire exercise lasted most of the day, initial burns were smaller in scale and conducted largely for new recruits who were work-

ing on their basic firefighter certifications. Later burns, were geared for active firefighters, providing them an opportunity to sharpen their skills on a real house fire. Koorn said the home was an old farmhouse. He didn’t know the exact age but guessed it had been built sometime in the 1930s or 1940s. The fire district worked with the property owner for the past six months, preparing for the burn.

Lisa Bjork settles into her job as temporary superintendent of the Coupeville School District.

Bjork accepts job as Coupeville’s superintendent — third in a year By Nathan Whalen Staff Reporter

Coupeville School District is currently on its third superintendent for this school year. Lisa Bjork, a former superintendent of the South Whidbey School District, was named interim superintendent last month. She will lead the school district until early June when permanent superintendent Jim Shank takes over. Coupeville School District was without a permanent superintendent since the end of the 2012 school year when Patty Page resigned after being hired by the North Kitsap School District. After conducting an initial employee search and reject-

ing three finalists last year, the school board named Karen Koschak as interim superintendent. Koschak served through most of the current school year until abruptly resigning in February because of a family medical issue. Jerry Jenkins, superintendent of the Educational Service District based in Anacortes, filled in for several weeks before the school board named Bjork their latest interim superintendent. Bjork, who served as assistant superintendent for the South Whidbey School from 1992 to 1996 and as superintendent from 1996 to 2000, said she couldn’t turn the job down when school officials called. She also works

at Seattle Pacific University teaching educational leadership and overseeing principal and superintendent interns. She said she sees herself as a bridge between Koschak and Shank. “I’m just trying to connect the dots between what has been going on and what needs to be done,” Bjork said. There are several projects she will be involved in during the coming weeks. School officials will be busy developing a budget for the 2013-14 school year.

Staff will also be busy implementing a new math program that will be consistent with new federal common core standards and work piloting a new principal teacher evaluation system is still moving forward. Coupeville School Board announced in February that they offered Shank the superintendent position. He is currently the superintendent of the Juab School District in Utah and will finish the school year before starting his duties in Coupeville in early June.

Brought to you by:

Coupeville Town Marshal Lance Davenport said he was able to track down a shoplifter with the help of the public and Internet. By utilizing a free web service called CanYouID. me, Davenport was able to post surveillance images of a man suspected of stealing hundreds of dollars worth of merchandise from a Front Street business. The March 3 shoplifting incident prompted Davenport to use the service shortly after becoming a member. The owner of the shop provided 30 minutes of surveillance footage of the suspect. Davenport said he was able to pull several good images of the man to create a suspect profile. The case against the man in question, a 25-yearold Whidbey Island transient, was forwarded to the Island County Prosecutor’s Office for consideration of charges. The website allows other law enforcement personnel as well as the public to search by town

or city and look at images of people the police are looking for. If someone recognizes a person they can contact that agency directly. Davenport said within a week of posting images, he started receiving tips. “It took about a week or so for people to start seeing,” he said. “Every couple of days info would trickle in.” Davenport also said the information seemed to be coming from a wide variety of areas and didn’t appear to be coming from one group of people. “It proved very successful,” he said. Once Davenport had a suspect in mind he said he was able to compare the surveillance images with prior arrest photographs. The man has a criminal past for similar types of crime. “I feel strongly we identified the right person,” he said. Because Coupeville has such heavy tourism traffic, the website might also prove useful in identifying suspects who don’t live on the island. More often than not criminals go out of their area of residence to commit crime, Davenport said. The website is increasing in popularity with police departments throughout the Puget Sound area signing on.

Oak Harbor’s annual fireworks display well worth your donation publisher’s column

By Keven R. Graves

Oak Harbor knows patriotism, and does it well. As I child, I always looked forward to traveling from Anacortes to Oak Harbor for the Fourth of July festivities. With apologies to Anacortes for verbalizing this — the annual parade on the Fourth was always longer and much more impressive than the one in my own hometown. My family and I would join thousands of others along Pioneer Way in viewing the procession. I don’t remember the individual entries — well I do remember one. You could always count on seeing the Shriners. Every year, they’d don their now politically incorrect skin coloring, over-the-top turbans and Arabian-style garb. One Shriner in particular stood out. An older gentleman, he carried a sabre and twirled it with fervor. Afterward, we headed to the carnival at City Beach Park, now Windjammer Park. At the time it seemed enormous. Sometimes we’d get to stay and watch the fireworks over the bay. Through good economic times and bad, Oak Harbor’s Fourth of July has endured. This year, however, the economy has threatened this year’s fireworks display. Total cost to put on the show is about $14,000. To date, the chamber has raised approximately $6,000. Business are increasingly strapped for money and the fundraising has been harder than in past years. Starting next Wednesday, everyone will get a chance to help save Oak Harbor’s Fourth of July fireworks display. The Oak harbor Chamber of Commerce is seeking donations to the fireworks donation fund. People can donate at the chamber’s office, located at 32630 State Highway 20, or after May 1 on the chamber’s website, oakharborchamber.com There are different levels of sponsorship, one See GRAVES, A7

Letters to the editor Mayor

Dudley ‘s approach needs adjustment Editor, How come every time I open up the Whidbey NewsTimes, Mayor Scott Dudley is firing someone? If people were honest they would admit that all politics are a bit of a joke, but this guy takes it to a new level. He wants to surrender part of his salary, speak on the behalf of others and eliminate the health care benefits of council members, and fired pretty much anyone with the audacity to think differently than him. What really got my attention was when Mr. Dudley admitted that he fired Chris Skinner because of his “resistance to whatever the mayor recommends,” and then goes on to say that he wants individuals who think “outside the box.”

Thinking outside the box does not mean firing every person who does not agree with your politics; it means working with a community of people who all have differing views and making that work for the betterment of the community itself. As I see it, Mayor Dudley has confused carrying a big stick with speaking softly. Jimmy Sloan Oak Harobr

Time for voters to protect their city Editor, Pride plays a major role in whether or not the citizens of Oak Harbor can publicly fess up to making a mistake. But how much money are the citizens of Oak Harbor willing to spend until they realize they cannot recover from debt and still maintain their pride? At the rate Mayor Scott Dudley is going, City of Oak Harbor will be bankrupt

before the next election. I understand that, when you take over as the mayor, you may want to tend to be ruthless and fire anyone who stands in your way. Is that really the right approach? So, to run a city like a dictator may sometime appear to a valid approach, but ultimately failure prevails. Look at the facts below: Mayor Dudley has fired five key employees. To fire these employees, City of Oak Harbor will pay a minimum of $550,000 in severance. An interim attorney had to be hired at a rate of oneand-a-half times the amount of what the city was paying for their own attorney. The city has multiple pending lawsuits, all during Scott Dudley’s first term in office. The mayor has now fired a volunteer for the marina committee. The reason for this firing is because the

mayor did not get his way on a previous vote. It is nearly impossible these days to get someone to volunteer for a cause that does not pay. Volunteering consumes many hours a month and has absolutely no medical or dental benefits. Yet, City of Oak Harbor has a mayor who is firing a volunteer without due cause. The mayor stepped up to the plate and is giving back 20 percent of his pay. Of the remainder of his term, at 20 percent, he will give back approximately $27,200. When the dust settles after his term, Scott Dudley will have put the citizens of Oak Harbor in debt an additional $9,522,800, not including unspecified damages if all pending lawsuits end in failure plus the 50 percent increase in attorney’s fees.

at 33 percent of his term? How can anyone possibly recover from this type of debt? Now the mayor wants to cut salaries and medical/dental benefits of other employees? How can that type of reduction even come close to solving the financial problems that the mayor himself has created? Imagine the mayor standing there with a Dixie cup in his hand trying to bail out the Titanic as it was sinking. Yes, he is trying, but the energy is totally wasted. The preliminary conversion of Pioneer Way to a one-way street was under way prior to Dudley being elected. Scott Dudley was opposed to the pioneer way project. Prior to construction, it looked like a run down ghost town with vacancy signs on every other building. There were challenges faced through the course of construction. Some challenges were inevitable. When you drive down the completed project, you will now see that there is now more than 90 percent occupancy in the commercial buildings. The vision of the council and previous mayor was a success. Pioneer Way is thriving again. In the 30 years I lived here, I have never seen the historic district of Oak Harbor look so beautiful and doing so well. City of Oak Harbor is now on its way to bankruptcy before the next mayoral election, however. I think that it is time that the citizens of Oak Harbor reconsider their choice of mayor before they hit Chapter 7. To remove a mayor may have its challenges, but it’s time for the voters and citizens of Oak Harbor to protect their city from ultimate failure. Scott Hampton Coupeville

Ear plugs are not the solution to jet noise Editor, Claudia Anderson should know that the people “that complain about noise” care about the safety of the pilots flying the airplanes as well as the safety of people on the ground. These pilots are not given a choice. They are directed to use a concrete strip, that was laid down in a hay field 70 years ago, to gain proficiency in landing on an aircraft carrier. The flight patterns, that the pilots are required to fly, take them over a 400home subdivision that the Navy designated as an accident potential zone. The designation was made after the homes were built. “Those that complain” are concerned about the safety of these people as well as the pilot. “Those that complain” believe that the Navy should provide pilots, who fly high performance aircraft, with a “state of the art” training facility that assures the safety of the people on the ground as well as the safety of pilots when they land on an aircraft carrier. Ear plugs are not the answer. Michael Monson Coupeville

Tribe

Disappointed Swinomish opted to sue Oak Harbor Editor, I’m disappointed that the Swinomish Tribe is seeking $9 million in damages from Oak Harbor. That’s almost $400 from every man, woman and child here. Certainly mistakes were made, but much effort has been made to respectfully deal with these mistakes. If the Swinomish community knew and cared about “the generations of their own ancestors who were buried there,” why didn’t they work with the planners during the initial stages? Truckloads of excavated material could have been delivered to the location of their choice within the beautiful current Swinomish location. We’re all in this great country together as Americans. Nobody gave me any free land or special fishing rights. I earned that right. I think that the Swinomish ancestors would be hanging their heads in shame at this attempt to grab a buck. Cultures as recently as a century ago took from others because they had the power to do so. Many Native American cultures did the same. Do we have to continue to pay the price today for a different culture of earlier times? We need to get along for who we are today. Nobody deserves a free ride. Until this claim is dropped, I will buy my gas, fireworks, seafood, do my gambling and use a hotel for my visitors elsewhere. Tim Verschuyl Oak Harbor

Environment

Fossil fuels will lead to environmental disaster Editor, I was dismayed to read Todd Myers’ April 17 opinion piece lauding the free market as an effective mechanism for protecting the environment. History shows this to be not true. Myers points to Toyota’s Prius as an example of free-markets’ power to produce green results. Fair enough, but Myers neglects to note that gasoline taxes are partly responsible for the cost of gasoline, and as such, government policy increases demand for efficient cars. Meanwhile Myers ignores history when he criticizes “top-down” policies as unhelpful to the environment. Eliminating gasoline-caused lead toxicity was done through EPA regulation during the 1970s. In the 1990s, it was again government action, not market forces, which eliminated ozone-destroying chlorofluorocarbons. It is the proper role of the free market to come up with alternatives in such cases, but it remains the purview of government to outlaw activity reasonably expected to be harmful. Myers also ignores economics when he asserts that free markets protect natural resources.

Free markets are good at some functions, such as producing inexpensive consumer goods and bringing down the cost of elective surgeries like Lasik. But localities that have tried free-market solutions to public services such as fire protection have often abandoned such attempts. There are many reasons that free markets fail to protect the environment. Consumers seldom know which of their choices are greenest because such information is complex and hard to find. Second, consumer choices often have little effect on a person’s susceptibility to health hazards. For example, a family choosing a gasoline truck over a sootier diesel truck cannot be certain that doing so will keep their children asthma-free. It is only in the aggregate that we know that policies reducing environmental soot, such as requiring low-sulfur diesel, lower asthma rates. Third, markets are notoriously bad at pricing “externalities.” The price of your hamburger rarely covers the cost of the roads you traveled to get to the restaurant. Fourth, many environmental benefits are not obviously economic. What, for instance, is the market value of a clear mountain view? Finally, much of the full value of today’s clean environment accrues to people not born, and therefore unable to vote yet. Those advocating for an unborn’s right to life ought just as quickly impute these unborn with a preference for clean water and air. It remains up to today’s politicians to act with foresight and courage; they must stand up to today’s profiteers to protect the environment for both today’s and tomorrow’s voters. Market forces have thus far proven wholly inadequate to address that singular environmental problem which outweighs all others. Global warming and ocean acidification, two symptoms of the same problem, constitute a genuine planetary emergency. Fortunately, we have a reasonable way to prevent carbon pollution — a straightforward tax based on the carbon content of fuels, is expected to simultaneously nudge people toward low-carbon energy and engage market forces to build more of the goods like efficient cars and biobased fuel which will be necessary in a sustainable economy. Still, make no mistake: minimizing carbon pollution requires coordinated world-wide action, led by governments and informed by ethics and science. Market forces can create alternatives once a carbon tax is in place. After all, the stone age did not end because we ran out of stones — it ended because we found something better. In the meantime do not believe those like Myers who insist that you can get something for nothing through the magic of free markets. As long as fossil fuels remain both cheap and plentiful, market forces alone, without strong government direction, will lead the world to certain environmental disaster. Bob Hallahan Oak Harbor

EBEY’S FOREVER CONTINUED FROM A1

Lawrence B. Young

Lawrence B. Young

Lawrence B. Young (Larry), of Oak Harbor, was born August 11, 1925, to Benjamin Swan Young and Susanne Bottomley Young in New York City. He went Home to be with his Lord and Savior on April 13, 2013. His family moved from Garden City, Long Island, to Connecticut in 1938. Larry was educated in prep schools and studied at Yale University for several years, majoring in Geology but would later find his life’s work in journalism and music review. While serving in the U.S. Army during WWII, he was injured during a training exercise so never saw active duty. Larry learned later when working as a finance clerk mustering out troops that half of his regiment was killed in the Battle of The Bulge. After the war and his stint at Yale, Larry’s first job as a reporter was with the Wall Street Journal. When he got the yen to move from the big city to quieter locales out West, he did reporting for a Denver magazine and, then, in Rock Springs, Wyo., for a couple months. For five years he was wire editor for the Idaho Free Press in Nampa, then to Albany, Ore., as managing editor. Finally, for 21 years Larry was a journalist for the Spokesman-Review in Spokane. He started a business tabloid and when that failed moved to Athol, Idaho and found out late in life that he loved working in construction which he did for several years. Larry was single 20 long years when he met the love of his life, Loretta, in April, 2006 and they were married June 10 of the same year. Larry was a man of many

talents, including snow skiing, gardening, singing and travel. A special love of his was Thursday ballroom dancing with his wife at the Hillcrest Park Lodge in Mount Vernon. He wouldn’t miss Sunday church for any reason and loved the men’s breakfast group at their Whidbey Presbyterian Church. Before marrying Loretta, he had been very active at Athol Baptist Church in Idaho and had many friends whom he greatly missed after moving to Oak Harbor. Larry volunteered at nursing homes in Coeur d’Alene for a number of years and also was a CPR Instructor. Larry was preceded in death by his parents and his brother, Thomas S. Young. He is survived by his wife, Loretta, step-daughters Toni Neely and Traci Garrett. He was also close to Loretta’s children, Deanna Frederick and husband Tom, Woody Rose, and Joe Rose and wife Danice. He loved his “adopted” granddaughters, Sarah Neely, Anna Frederick and Linnea Frederick. He was looking forward to seeing the California grandchildren and greatgrandchildren at granddaughter Katie Rose’s June wedding but God had other plans for him. A beautiful memorial service was held 2 p.m. Wednesday, April 17, 2013, at Whidbey Presbyterian Church in Oak Harbor, with inurnment at Tahoma National Cemetery to follow at a later date. In lieu of flowers, donations in his name may be made to either: The Voice of The Martyrs, P.O. Box 443, Bartlesville, OK 74005 or Prison Fellowship, 44180 Riverside Parkway, Lansdowne, VA 20176.

2010 at the annual Ebey’s Forever Conference when the Pickard family announced a financial grant challenge. Any money donated by the community for the preservation of historic structures within the reserve would be matched by up to $50,000. At the time, and continuing to this day, government funding can be hard to come by. Old buildings are expensive to maintain and property owners are left with the responsibility of keeping up structures that they sometime can’t even use. The idea behind the fund was simple: to foster a program that would provide enough financial assistance to property owners that they would willing reinvest in the old buildings. For example, a barn built by Clark Sherman in 1935 had been used for many different things over the decades, but heavy farming

use took a toll on the nearly 80-year-old structure. The building fell into such disrepair that Don Sherman, the barn’s current owner and Clark’s grandson, had all but stopped using the second story for fear of its structural stability. While he never planned to abandon the building, the cost of repairs did delay its rehabilitation. The Pickard’s challenge was met and Sherman was one of the first grant recipients. Worn-out siding was replaced, the second story doors were repaired, and the eyebrow-raising tilt to the North stabilized. That financial help was one of the big reasons the project got done when it did, Sherman said. “It was a really important consideration,” Sherman said. “I really give all those guys credit for getting this going,”

OBITUARY Merle Weston Story, Jr. “Cork”, U.S. Navy AVCM, Ret

Merle Weston Story, Jr. “Cork”, U.S. Navy AVCM, Ret., 64, of Oak Harbor, passed away Sunday April 14, 2013 in Everett, Washington from cancer, with his loving wife by his side. He was born July 25, 1948 in Puyallup, Washington to Merle and Leona Story. He is married to Jean Story and has lived in Oak Harbor since October of 1971. Merle served honorably in the United States Navy from September 15, 1966 to January 31, 1991. After he retired from the Navy, he opened and owned his own business building custom cabinets at Cork’s Woodworks. He followed his dad’s footsteps and always enjoyed working with wood. He enjoyed flowers, plants and stamps. He also loved to read and work on crossword puzzles. His Facebook friends from all over the world were a big highlight in his daily routine.

he said. Linda Bartlett, co-owner of Rosehip Farm & Garden, was a grant recipient last year and the Sam Keith Farm Shed, a small building located next to her home, received a major overhaul. “It was pretty unusable. ... It was more like a lean-to than a building,” she said. Trying to take on expensive projects like that can be a “daunting” task when you’re trying to run a successful farm, she said. Like Sherman, she said the end result is that renovations and even maintenance can be pushed back. “We might have been able to do this ourselves, but this allowed us to make it a priority,” she said. In both cases, the funding program not only enabled property owners to fix up historic structures that had fallen into disrepair, but also, and just as importantly, to put them to use. According to Preiss, that’s a big part of keeping these buildings alive and maintaining the fabric of a working,

cultural landscape. It may also be a big reason for the program’s popularity among working farmers, as many now see the fund as a realistic source of assistance. Only one of the 14 applicants for the 2013 grants did not move forward. By comparison, similar state programs can be highly competitive. The community’s investment has also increased, with more money raised each year. An anonymous donor issued a $75,000 challenge grant and, like the Pickard’s initial challenge two years ago, it was met by the public. “This has its own energy now,” Preiss said. For working farmers like Sherman, the program has provided welcome financial assistance and made an old building more useable. It also just happened to make a historic structure that’s close to his heart a little easier on the eyes. “It’s nice to see the old girl with some paint on her,” Sherman said.

candidates willing to apply for the job. Last month, Dudley appointed an attorney to the position, but the council refused to confirm his candidate because of their concerns about his lack of experience. The attorney would have earned $101,000 a year, plus benefits, for a total package worth $135,000 a year. Weed, an attorney with a lot of municipal experience,

was hired last summer as the interim city attorney on a contract basis. He was not intended to be a permanent solution. Cort said last week that the city’s prosecutor will be doing more civil work in order to “cross-train” and save the city some money in attorney’s fees. In addition, he said legal staff at the city has also asked to be more involved in the civil side.

Oak Harbor hands S. Whidbey 1st tennis loss By JIM WALLER Sports editor

Oak Harbor High School’s tennis team earned Whidbey Island bragging rights when it defeated previously unbeaten South Whidbey 4-3 Monday in a nonleague match on the Wildcats’ courts. The win didn’t come easy for Oak Harbor. The Falcons’ three wins were the first three matches completed, so Oak Harbor needed to sweep the final four to take the team victory. South Whidbey dominated the featured matches, winning the top two singles and the No. 1 doubles contests, but the Wildcats (3-8), a 3A school, used its superior depth to stop the 1A Falcons (9-1). The Falcons’ Newman sisters, two of the state’s top 1A singles players, cruised to wins in the first and second singles. Senior Haley defeated Makenzie Perry 6-2, 6-0; and sophomore Carlie stopped Chelsea Atkinson 6-0, 6-0. Oak Harbor countered by winning third and fourth singles. Faith Franssen topped Katrina Layton 6-2, 6-1; and

Brittany Rigby defeated Sophie Nilsen 6-3, 6-0. Oak Harbor’s Chelsea Admire and Jamie Estrella fell 6-0, 6-1 to Tess Radisch and Amelia Weeks in first doubles, but the Wildcats grabbed second and third doubles. Zena Husler and Alyssa Eden beat Isla Dubendorf and Brea Gaugher 7-6(2), 6-1; and Caterina Amsler and Hannah Gluth dropped Colleen Groce and Katherine Read 7-5, 6-1. Oak Harbor’s Dallas Breilein and Mollie Briddell also won an exhibition doubles match 8-4. Oak Harbor coach Horace Mells knew going into the season it would be an uphill battle with only two returning varsity players and two seniors. He said Stanwood (8-1, 11-1) is clearly the best team in the Wesco North, but the other four teams are evenly matched. “We can compete against all three if we have all of our players,” Mells said. “It seems like every match we are missing someone.”

Jim Waller/Whidbey News-Times

Oak Harbor’s Makenzie Perry competes in No. 1 singles against South Whidbey Monday. Wildcat coach Horace Mells said Perry is a great example of the progress of some of his players this year. Perry worked her way up to the No. 1 spot after starting out as No. 8. With such a young team, Mells said “the upside is

good if we can keep everyone involved.”

Wildcat baseball team prep roundup wraps up second place Wolves 3rd at La Conner Oak Harbor High School’s baseball team clinched second place in the Wesco 3A North standings and a home playoff game with a 10-5 win at Everett Monday. Mike Maletto ripped two doubles and drove in four runs to help lift Oak Harbor to a 9-0 lead after three innings in the win. Jack Richter pitched a complete game six-hitter, striking out three and giving up only two earned runs. The Wildcats jumped out of the gate with four first-inning runs. Brent Mertins singled, Richter reached on catcher’s interference and David Kusnick singled to load the bases. Cory Cameron drove in one run with a base hit, then Maletto cleared the bases with a three-run double. Oak Harbor added five more runs in the third. Richter walked and Kusnick singled in front of a two-run double

by Danny Wolfe. Maletto doubled in Wolfe, then Anthony Stewart tripled in Maletto. Andrew Snavely’s sacrifice plated Stewart. The Seagulls (0-11, 1-13), after getting single runs in the fourth and fifth, got back into the game with a three spot in the sixth. Oak Harbor finished the scoring with a seventh-inning run. Stewart singled, stole second and scored on Teddy Peterschimdt’s base hit. The Wildcats (9-5, 10-7) finish the regular season with three crossover games against the top three teams from the Wesco South. The first game will feature two of the league’s hottest teams when Oak Harbor travels to Snohomish to face Glacier Peak (10-4, 12-5) at 4 p.m. today, The second-place Grizzlies have won six straight, Oak Harbor eight.

The Coupeville girls track team dominated the relays and short races and the boys dominated the weight events at the seven-team La Conner Invitational Friday. As a team, the Wolves placed third in both the girls and boys standings. Jai’Lysa Hoskins (13.29) led a Coupeville sweep of the top four places in the girls 100, followed by teammates Marisa Etzell (13.66), Sylvia Hurlburt (13.95) and Emma Sullivan (14). Makana Stone (27.46) and Hurlburt (28.24) went 1-2 in the 200, and Etzell (1:08.32) and Anna Bailey (1:11.66) finished 3-4 in the 400. Madison Tisa-McPhee won both hurdle races (100, 17.42; 300, 53.03), while Sullivan (fourth, 100, 18.65; second, 300, 53.4) and Courtney Allard (fifth, 100, 19.98; sixth, 300, 1:00.98) also placed. The Coupeville girls finished off their impressive showing in the sprints by winning all three relays: 4x100, Hurlburt, Stone, Etzell, Hoskins, 53.41; 4x200, Tisa-McPhee, Hoskins, Stone, Hurlburt, 1:51.75; and 4x400, Stone, Kirsten Pelroy, Etzell, Hoskins, 4:34.61. The distance running of Erin Rosenkranz stood out as well as the sophomore won the 3,200 (13:47.13) and finished third in the 1,600

He added it is important that each girl works on her

(6:25.75). For the boys, junior Nick Streubel won both the discus (131-05.5) and shot put (44) and had plenty of Coupeville company on the podium. Carson Risner (105-02.5) and Dalton Martin (103) went 3-4 in the discus and Risner placed fifth (32-07) and Martin eighth (31-08.5) in the shot. Matthew Hampton led the runners with seconds in the 800 (2:18.69) and 1,600 (5:04.32). Both relay teams grabbed second: 4x400, Hampton, Jared Helmstadter, Brandon Kelley and Sam Landau, 3:59.7; and the 4x100, Helmstadter, Brandon Kelley, Lathom Kelley, Landau, 48.83. Lathom Kelley (200, 25.25), Landau (400, 1:00.13) and Konrad Borden (triple jump, 29-02) all picked up fourths. Coupeville goes to Lakewood at 4 p.m. Thursday.

Wolves grab 2nd win The Coupeville soccer team fought to its second straight win with a 1-0 squeaker over visiting Sultan Friday, but fell at eighth-ranked Archbishop Murphy 7-0 Monday. Coupeville coach Paul Mendes said he expected the Sultan match to be a “tough, close game” because the two teams battled through a shootout the first time they met March 29. The Turks (2-9, 3-10) pulled out that match 2-1. Mendes was spot-on in his prediction. Sultan and Coupeville produced

game in the offseason, but that can be tough with so many multi-sport athletes on the team. Wins have been hard to come by, but Mells likes the growth his team. He noted that Perry worked her way up from the No. 8 singles player to the top spot, that Rigby has been “amazing” with only three losses and the doubles duo of Estrella and Admire have “progressed nicely.” “Actually, everyone has progressed,” he said. Mells said the goal now is for someone to place in the Wesco North tournament and earn a spot in the district tournament. Advancing out of district to state will be difficult, Mells said, because the Wesco South has been so dominant. Three of the southern teams have only one loss, and the fourth-place team has a better record than the North’s No. 2 team. Oak Harbor travels to Stanwood tomorrow and then hosts south leader Shorecrest (7-1, 8-2) at 3:30 p.m. Monday. p.m.

a nail-biter, and, finally, with 13 minutes left, Josh Wilsey scored to lift the Wolves to their first Cascade Conference win. Mendes said the goal was set up by a five-pass combination play between Tanner Kircher, Sean Donley, Jeremy Copenhaver and Wilsey. Copenhaver, with his back to the goal 20 yards out, used a “brilliant” heal pass, Mendes said, to slip the ball through to Wilsey. Wilsey found himself one-on-one with Turk goalie Danny Arroyo for a second time. Earlier in the match Wilsey, on a breakaway, blasted a shot off the upper right cross bar in a near miss in the first confrontation. This time Arroyo made a save on a point-blank shot, but Wilsey struck again on the rebound, driving home the goal. The match was intense all night, but after the goal the battle grew even more fierce. Both teams faced scary moments, but Coupeville’s defense held up, led by “Luke Pelant’s ability to plug up the holes at key moments,” Mendes said. The blank sheet was the second by Coupeville this year and the first for goal keeper Joel Walstad. “He stepped up to the challenge and played a fine match,” Mendes said.

Wolves win 4-1 A 4-1 win over visiting Sultan Monday by the Coupeville High School baseball team pushed the Wolves to within a half game of third place in the Cascade Conference standings. Ben Etzell pitched a complete game seven-hitter, striking out 11 and walking only three along the way. Kurtis Smith sparked the offense with three hits. Smith got things going in the first with a leadoff single. He eventually scored when Jake Tumblin’s popup fell among four Turk fielders just behind second base. Sultan tied it in the fourth when it collected three of its seven hits. Coupeville quickly

regained the lead by scoring in its half of the fourth. Kyle Bodamer doubled, moved to third on Aaron Trumbull’s sacrifice bunt and scored on Korbin Korzan’s fly ball. The Wolves added two more runs in the sixth. With one out, Trumbull reached on an error. Back-to-back singles by Korzan and Smith plated one run, then Drew Chan’s fly ball scored the second. Tumblin finished with two hits. The Wolves (6-9, 7-9), who trail South Whidbey by one game in the loss column in the league standings, travel to Sultan (4-11, 4-12) today and then host the Turks again at 4 p.m. Friday.

‘Cats miss chance

preps Most of the Wolves’ scoring chances came in the second half. Along with Wilsey’s breakaway, Copenhaver earned an excellent scoring opportunity by defeating two defenders and rocketing a shot from 18 yards out that Arroyo deflected away. Mendes said, “We combined a good offensive game, generating better possessions and a lot of shots, along with a solid defensive performance for this win. It took a lot of hard work and a real team effort.” Archbishop Murphy (10-2, 11-2-1) scored four minutes in the match and gained “instant momentum,” according to Mendes. He added, “They are a very strong team and they were clicking on all cylinders.” The Wolves had few scoring opportunities because Murphy “kept us busy trying to contain their strong offense,” Mendes said. Coupeville’s best chances to score came when Nathan Lamb twice broke through, but the ball “just was not bouncing our way,” according to Mendes. “Some of our guys will learn from it,” Mendes said, “and get ready for our next match. This is a good group and I am confident they will heal their wounds and bounce back.” Coupeville (1-11, 2-12) honors its seniors in the final home match at 6 p.m. tonight against Granite Falls (2-9, 2-11).

CURB CONTINUED FROM A1 board nearly moved forward with a program in 2007, holding several community meetings, but aspects of the plan proved unpopular. It was mandatory for existing Island Disposal customers, and the hauler would not accept glass. Efforts to find another hauler was unsuccessful and the plan was shelved for several years while the county looked for alternatives. In 2012, the county again sought haulers, but Island Disposal was the only company to respond. It submitted a plan nearly identical to the one presented years earlier. At an estimated $11.60 a month, however, it was almost twice as expensive as the $6.40 rate proposed in 2007. Once again, glass was not accepted and curbside service would be contingent on subscription to trash pickup. The plan did not force the public to become an Island Disposal customer, but anyone who pays for the hauler’s trash service would also have to pay for recycling. In December, the Democrat-dominated board ended the long debate by passing an ordinance requiring Island Disposal, the county’s franchised hauler, to roll out the program this year. The dust hardly settled, however, when a new Republican-led board agreed in January to begin the process of rescinding the ordinance. Monday’s meeting saw more than two-hours of public testimony but few new arguments. Some complained about the service’s shortcomings while others proclaimed its benefits. “This forces an urban service into a rural area,” said Ray Gabelein, a Freeland resident. “It doesn’t make sense.” Opponents of the curbside

program said they are avid recyclers, but believe the program was too expensive, inadequate and went too far. “I don’t want government telling me what to do at every single level,” said Pam Neschke, also of Freeland. Others voiced equally passionate arguments in favor of the program, among them a mother with two children. Ryan Lipstein, a teacher at Oak Harbor High School, said she was “disheartened” to hear the board was considering rescinding what she called a “necessary, efficient, effective” program. “I really urge you to hold onto this,” Lipstein said. “It’s a good thing and I think you’ll be happy with it in the future when you look back, so please don’t repeal it.” She was joined by the Oak Harbor High School’s Ecology Club. The small group of teens urged the board not to rescind the ordinance and set an example for the next generation. “If they see from the adults in the community that recycling isn’t a priority, it won’t be a priority to them,” said Reilly Richards, 16, the club’s secretary. Carol Dawes said she lives on a fixed income and would happily pay the extra $11.60 to cover the cost of the curbside program. “I’m willing to pay whatever I need to pay in order to take care of this planet and this county,” she said. “I try to make decisions my grandkids can be proud of,” Price Johnson responded. “I think it is the right thing to do.” Emerson, however, said she remains “not convinced” that recycling statistics provided by county Public Works officials are accurate and that the program will actually reduce the county’s carbon footprint. Also, the exclusion of glass

is too large a shortcoming to ignore, she said. Johnson said she does accept the county’s statistics as accurate and thanked department officials for their years of work in preparing the complicated and controversial proposal. However, Johnson said she won’t consent to a program that mandates the participation of Island Disposal

customers and removes the financial risk of a private business with public tax dollars. “I hope the students who felt they were learning a lesson in the value of recycling also learned a lesson in the value of economics,” Johnson said. “My personal belief is we’re just not ready to move this forward.”

Playhouse offers peek at 2013-14 season By RON NEWBERRY Staff reporter

Jim Reynolds, playing Nick Bottom in “A Midsummer Night’s Dream,” takes a stab at killing himself during a rehearsal at the Whidbey Playhouse last week.

The Shakespeare plunge Whidbey Playhouse tackles work from Shakespeare for first time with guidance from new director By RON NEWBERRY Staff reporter

A little over a year ago, Allenda Jenkins said a few prayers. Shortly afterward, she met a fellow with a long name and an even longer list of eye-opening theater credentials. And, it seemed, her prayers were answered. Jenkins, president of the Whidbey Playhouse, views the arrival of Stephen James Anderson on Whidbey Island as if it were fate. Anderson came to the island 19 months ago to serve at Whidbey Island Naval Air Station. But his service also has reached Oak Harbor’s community theater, and the impact could be far reaching. Anderson, a longtime

director and actor in professional theater, is directing his first play on the island this week while breaking new ground at the venerable Whidbey Playhouse. “A Midsummer Night’s Dream,” which opens Friday night, will be the first William Shakespeare play performed in the playhouse’s 46-year history. Jenkins said it took someone like Anderson to make that possible. “Shakespeare is a challenge,” Jenkins said. “You have to have a certain expertise to do it well. As a playhouse, we take pride in what we do, and I don’t think we felt we really had the skills or the talent or the leadership to do it well. It was just a matter of waiting until that right person showed up -- Stephen -- with

receiving such inspiration for the theater not long before she was introduced to Anderson at a playhouse function. Anderson, 34, showed

In the midst of a satisfying finish to the current season, Whidbey Playhouse is hoping to carry that momentum to the coming season. The Oak Harbor theater offered a sneak peak to the 2013-14 season Saturday night, unveiling a lineup of plays that seemed to appeal to nearly packed audience in the theater. “Considering what’s going on in the economy, we’re doing pretty good. We’re holding our own. We really are,” said Allenda Jenkins, president of the Whidbey Playhouse. “We’re under where we want to be with our expenses. We’re keeping that in control. Our shows are bringing in just about what we were expecting. The last two did great, ‘It Runs in the Family,’ and ‘Ain’t Misbehavin.’” They brought in really good returns for us. And we’re excited about ‘Midsummer Night’s Dream.’” The five plays for the 201314 season include two musicals and a mystery. Stan Thomas directs the first season ticket production, “Too Soon For Daisies,” a comedic thriller about three elderly ladies who “escape” from a retirement home and find an empty house to settle in. The story changes sharply after the new owner of the house appears then dies of a heart attack. The show opens Sept. 6. The musicals are the lively “Joseph and the Amazing Technicolor Dreamcoat,” directed by Rusty Hendrix, and the holiday show, “1776,” directed by Gayle Litka. A preview of “Joseph and the Amazing Technicolor Dreamcoat,” left the audience roaring in laughter. That production is slated for November with “1776” not on the stage until April of 2014. The other season productions are “Book of Days,” a mystery set in a small Missouri town directed by Kevin William Meyer and See preview, A13

years in professional theater, including a lengthy stint with Shakespeare & Company in Lenox, Mass. “I had said a prayer, ‘Lord bring the people that we need from the north, east, south and west to fulfill the mission that we have for this theater,’” Jenkins said. When Jenkins met Anderson and learned about his background and passion for Shakespeare, her eyes it up. “I always wanted to do Shakespeare here,” she said. Anderson made a formal proposal to a playhouse committee just over a year ago. It was accepted, and the process of bringing Shakespeare to Oak Harbor was underway. It wasn’t a typical process. A Shakespeare production to an unfamiliar cast required training. Anderson went to work teaching classes to actors at the playhouse. “I started teaching some classes about a year ago to start to engrain people into the nature of Shakespeare’s language and hopefully try to demystify it a little bit,” Anderson said after a rehearsal for “Midsummer Night’s Dream,” last week. “We called the class, ‘Demystifying Shakespeare.” No one questioned Anderson’s teaching credentials. He figures he’s been involved in “probably over 400” Shakespeare plays in varying capacities. He’s well versed in Shakespeare-speak. “People often when they think of Shakespeare, even when English teachers teach it, it’s like they’re pulling down this old dusty book off the shelf and they blow the dust off,” Anderson said. “They open it up and they see what we call old English. What we fail to understand is that this English is the language that created ours. They were inventing new words. There wasn’t any

Culinary arts team lands fifth again

Shakespeare’s in the building A “Midsummer Night’s Dream” is the first William Shakespeare play to be performed at the Whidbey Playhouse. The show, directed by Stephen James Anderson and produced by Allenda Jenkins, opens Friday night and will run April 26-May 19. Performances will be Thursdays, Fridays and Saturdays at 7:30 p.m., and Sundays at 2:30 p.m. There will be no show on Mother’s Day. Tickets are $16 at the box office, 730 S.E.

dictionary then. They didn’t have spelling and grammar rules, so the words at that time were fresh and new and innovative and sexy. And they were alive with meaning.” Anderson’s “Midsummer Night’s Dream” is a whirlwind of comedic activity involving 21 actors. The chaotic pace with activity in many places at the same time is designed to keep the audience’s attention. Actors run wildly off stage and even into the audience. The stage was transformed into a thrust stage, extending into the audience on three sides, so there could be such intimacy and interaction with guests. “It’s a little like kids in front of a TV set,” said Sam Daniel, an Oak Harbor actor who plays the role of Demetrius during the play. “We want to hook them in there so you can’t take your eyes away. We wanted chaos in multiple places because you’ll be looking one way and find out, ‘Oh, I’m about to miss something over here.’ It keeps you on your toes.” There’s a lot going on in “Midsummer Night’s Dream,” a play written in the 16th century, which portrays the events surrounding a musical directed by Sarah Russell, will be performed in December in time for the holidays. “Love Letters,” rounds out the off-season lineup and won’t be on stage until February. It also is directed by Thomas. By unveiling the Whidbey Playhouse’s 2013-14 lineup, actors got a chance to see what they might be interested in auditioning for. “I’m really excited about (next season),” Locke said. “We have two musicals.

Stephen James Anderson, director of “A Midsummer Night’s Dream,” figures he’s been involved in at least 400 Shakespeare plays in some capacity. the marriage of the Duke of Athens, Theseus and Hippolyta. That’s why Anderson likes the use of the thrust stage, which involves audience intimacy. “It’s something I use in all of the shows that I direct 100 percent of the time,” said Anderson, whose wife, Aurora Lea Anderson, is the play’s assistant director. “It keeps the audience electrified and engaged. They can’t fall asleep because they never know when it’s going to come back to them. So it makes them a part of the experience.” Jenkins, who is producing the show, said the stage setup, elaborate sets, props and costumes in “Midsummer Night’s Dream” is unlike any other performance before at the playhouse. “This one we’ve taken to another level,” Jenkins said. “We pulled out all the stops. We’ve done thrust before, but we haven’t done it like this. We’ve done lighting and effects before but we haven’t done it like this.” Julia Locke, who’s on the playhouse board of directors, acts in the play and took on the role of costume designer. Locke said Anderson provided her with drawings from a “big-time” fashion designer to get an idea of what the costumes should look like in the play. She went with those concepts

couple of really good plays for women, “Too Soon for Daisies,” and I’m also directing a show, “Enchanted April,” which is a sweet little romance. And we have a good mystery (Book of Days). “Mysteries are really popular with our audience. We did a survey of our audience members a couple of years ago. Of course, musicals came in No. 1. But to my surprise, mysteries came in No. 2. They’re very popular and a very close second to musicals.”

and went to work, altering costumes in storage while starting others, such as those worn by fairies, virtually from scratch. “Obviously, we’re not a big professional company,” said Locke, who plays the role of Lady Egeus. “We don’t have the sort of resources that they do so we were trying as much as possible to use things we already had in our costume department.” Anderson, who lives in Coupeville, said he has been inspired by the dedicated cast and crew that has worked for more than a year to bring the Shakespeare production to the Whidbey Playhouse.

The significance of being regarded as one of the top five high school culinary arts programs in the country wasn’t lost on Mary Arthur. Still, she said that Oak Harbor High School’s culinary team felt some disappointment after finishing in fifth place for the second year in a row after competing at the National ProStart Invitational in Baltimore, Md., over the weekend. “I thought they did an amazing job,” said Arthur, culinary arts instructor at Oak Harbor. “They were smooth. They were polished. The things that the judges had issues with were honestly personal preferences of the judges. You don’t know what they’re going to like and what they’re not going to like (from year to year).” Oak Harbor sent two teams to the national competition for the first time.

Both the Wildcats’ culinary and restaurant management teams won state championships to earn the trip to the east coast. Arthur said both teams performed very well in their competitions and said it would take more time to find out where the restaurant management team ranked among the 40-plus teams, though it didn’t finish in the top five. She didn’t want to guess, but thinks she has an idea and was very pleased. Oak Harbor’s culinary team consisted of senior captain Racheal Balasa, juniors Haley Garden and Joanna Leete and sophomore Sara Jackson. The management team was made up of seniors Michelle Lambert and Robert Clemena and sophomore Patrick Salgado. Scott Fraser, the program’s longtime mentor and owner of Fraser Gourmet Hideaway, accompanied the students on the trip.
