Farmland protected north end of reserve By Nathan Whalen Staff Reporter

Island County, the Whidbey Camano Land Trust and several other entities are working with a family to ensure a large swath of property near Penn Cove will remain picturesque farmland. The Muzzall family, the owners of 3 Sisters Beef, negotiated a conservation easement to preserve 113 acres of farmland located north of Penn Cove. Currently the land trust is going through the public process to secure the final $69,000 worth of Island County Conservation Futures Funds to finish the deal. The proposal, which is currently undergoing review, would be the last bit of funding that included a $400,000 Conservation Futures Fund award the Board of Island County Commissioners awarded in 2012 and a $460,000 grant from the Natural Resources Conservation Service, which is operated by the United States Department of Agriculture. Conservation Futures is funded by a 6.25 cent per $1,000 assessed property value tax. Money raised by the can be used to acquire open space, agricultural land and timber land. Owner Ron Muzzall, who is the fourth-generation of his family to farm on Whidbey Island, said the easement will ensure his property remains in agricultural production and will providing the capital needed to invest in his business selling beef directly to the consumer. “After a while, you become attached to the land as a farm,” Muzzall said. The Muzzalls, who sell grass-fed beef under the name 3 Sisters Beef, raises cows, chickens and hogs on 600 acres scattered throughout north and central Whidbey Island. The Muzzall’s operation has changed during the early years of the 21st century. The longtime dairy farm switch to selling grass fed beef directly to consumers in recent years. The family recently opened up a retail store in the San de Fuca school house located on Highway 20 near Penn Cove. Local conservationists are excited See PROTECTED, page 12

The Perkins House, located on Ebey Road in Coupeville, is a 2013 grant recipient from the Ebey’s Forever Fund. Through the fund, authentic siding will be restored on the home as well as renovation to match original window and door configuration.

Forever fund helping home owners By Megan Hansen Editor

In just three years, the Ebey’s Forever Fund granted $200,000 to help preserve history on Central Whidbey. Having just released the names of the 2013 grant recipients, new projects are already underway. Ebey’s Forever Fund was able to issue double the funds than in previous years. This year $100,000 is being divided between 13 projects aimed at preserving the historical integrity of buildings in Ebey’s Reserve. “We’re really seeing a significant amount of support ripple across the island,” said Mark Preiss, reserver manager. Projects include replacing roofs, windows and siding on many structures including the Comstock Barn, located on Ebey Road near Hill Road, and the Old County Court House on Madrona Way. “Projects help sustain that building for future use, for future generations,” Preiss said.

One project already underway is the Perkins House, which was built in 1890 on Ebey Road. Through new ownership, the house is getting a major makeover to revert it back to its original appearance. Annie Kidd Matsov, historical architect for the reserve, said the Perkins House had some modifications to windows and doors over the years as well as additions. Because of the changes over the years, the home no longer contributes to the historical registry. Once the new owner purchased the home, renovation unearthed some of the original historical integrity.

“It’s like solving mysteries through historical archeology,” Matsov said. By getting down to the original frame, workers found an original door had been closed up and windows had been modified. Part of the Ebey’s Forever Fund grant will help restore the original door as well as bring windows back to their original dimensions. Removing some of the house’s siding revealed the original siding was just covered with new. Which is good, Matsov said, because it’s been mostly protected over the years. The grant from Ebey’s Forever Fund will See FUNDS, page 12

Incoming school’s chief starts in June

School math books up for public review All parents and community members are invited to review two options for math textbooks and materials that will be used by students at Coupeville middle and high schools. The materials from two publishers will be available for public review between 8 a.m. and 3 p.m. through May 3, 2013 in the school district office, located in Annex room 307 at the middle and high school, 501 S. Main St., Coupeville, WA 98239. Coupeville School District teachers have been reviewing math curriculum and materials and have selected the two publishers whose grades six through 12 resources most closely align with Common Core State Standards. The district anticipates purchasing new math materials this year for the secondary school so they are ready for use in 2013-2014 school year.

Live the Island Dream…

By Nathan Whalen Staff Reporter

With about six weeks remaining before he officially takes over as superintendent of the Coupeville School District, Jim Shanks is getting an early start. The incoming superintendent visited the Coupeville School District to meet with staff and students while helping the interim superintendent manage the Central Whidbey-based district. “Everyone has been really kind and gracious,” Shanks said. His week started with a board retreat April 8 where they discussed the district’s strategic plan and then held an executive session to talk about collective bargaining. He visited Coupeville even though he is still working as superintendent of the Juab School District in Utah. Because Coupeville has gone through several interim superintendents in recent months, he said it was best if he could visit for a week, work with interim superintendent Lisa Bjork and help with projects that staff are

School staff are currently working on adjusting curriculum to meet federal common core standards and implementing a new principal / teacher evaluation system. Leaders are also busy developing a new budget.

Shank said he is familiar with the financial challenges school districts are facing due to the recession. He has served as superintendent of the Utah-based school district, which has 2,300 students, for three years. Before that, he worked for the Idaho Falls School District, which is in Idaho, where he held positions as

principal and director. Shank said he was interested in applying in the Coupeville superintendent position because it offered a chance to move back to the Pacific Northwest. He was raised in Longview and his wife, Sally, was raised in Portland. They have six children and three of them will attend Coupeville schools.

Shank said he learned about the position after talking with former Interim Superintendent Karen Koschak. Koschak abruptly resigned several months ago due to a family issue. The Coupeville School District named Jerry Jenkins, current superintendent of the Education Service District in Anacortes, to replace Koschak. He served for several weeks before naming current interim superintendent Lisa Bjork. Shank is scheduled to start his job in Coupeville in early June, which is typically a month earlier that superintendents typically start a new job. He said leaders of the school districts talked and came up with an arrangement to allow Shank to start in June.

Religions collaborate for National Day of Prayer By Nathan Whalen Staff Reporter

Dozens of prayer-minded folks will be gathering in front of the Island County Courthouse next week to participate in an event that has become a yearly tradition on Whidbey Island. The ceremony scheduled on the steps of the county campus in Coupeville is just one of three scheduled on north and central Whidbey Island in conjunction with the National Day of Prayer. This year’s theme is “Pray for America” and the Bible verse for the 2013 Day of Prayer is Matthew 12:21(NIV), which states “In

His name the nations will put their hope.” Volunteer Jacque Hidreth, who is part of a 16-member committee organizing the National Day of Prayer events on Whidbey Island, said people attending pray for seven areas — school, family, military, church, government, media and business. Daybreak, a trio out of Oak Harbor, will perform religious and patriotic music during Coupeville’s ceremony and the Oak Harbor NJROTC will send a color guard. Like the 2012 event, a couple of participants will blow a shofar, which is a

ram’s horn. The shofar is traditionally used in Jewish Rosh Hashanah morning services. Coupeville’s event takes place at 12:15 p.m., Thursday May 2. In addition, a community prayer rally takes place at 5:30 p.m. at the Windjammer Park Gazebo. Hidreth said the evening event will be similar to the Coupeville ceremony. Music will be provided by Lance Gibbon and a youth band from Living Word Fellowship. National Day of Prayer kicks off with a prayer gathering at Concordia Lutheran Church, located at 590 N. Oak Harbor Road.

Bayview market opens The South Whidbey farmers market season gets underway Saturday when the Bayview Farmers Market opens for the 2013 season at Bayview Corner. The opening bell — to be sounded at 10 a.m. — will signal the start of another busy year for the largest outdoor market on South Whidbey. This year more than 60 spots have been allocated to vendors who will offer local produce and other farm products, baked goods including breads, pies, cakes and bars, hot foods and artisan crafts. As the weather warms, more produce — including Whidbey Island strawberries — will be available. The market this year will include a new service for visitors and vendors—of internet service. Last week Whidbey Telecom installed equipment to add the market as one of the company’s wi-fi hotspots.

Customers may log into the service at no charge, and visitors can purchase time on an hourly basis. Music for the opening day will be the jazz quintet the Maxwelton Beach Club. The first market food demo, by local chefs Scott and Stephanie Pendell, is scheduled May 11 for Mother’s Day weekend.

Market shopping bags are khaki with yellow lettering this year and will be available opening day from vendors and market manager Sharon Warwick. A list of all vendors and more information about the market can be found at the newly redesigned and updated market website at www. bayviewfarmersmarket.com

Ebey’s Forever Fund should be supported I got to explore a little bit of Coupeville history this week. On the front page you will see a story I wrote regarding Ebey’s Forever Fund and the historical preservation Megan Hansen it is helping fund. Some perspective I met with Annie Kidd Matsov, a historical architect, and Mark Preiss, manager for Ebey’s Landing Historical Reserve, this week and got a brief tour of the reserve and some of the work that’s been done in an effort to preserve the area’s rich history. I have to say it’s pretty neat that a project like Ebey’s Forever Fund was started and continues to grow at the hands of private individuals and the support of businesses. In its third year, the fund has granted a total of $200,000. This year it doubled previous years, granting $100,000 to 13 projects. Projects include the Perkins House, which is featured in the article, the Sherman Bulk Shed, Captain Whidbey Inn and Old San de Fuca Store. I learned this week that more than 400 structures are listed on the National Historic Registry and of those 400, 99 percent are privately owned. Preiss said the reserve is working on increasing its public presence and trying to publicize the resources available to historic home owners as well as the work being done. Ebey’s Forever Fund gives historic home owners the financial support they need to preserve the history they bought. Driving around the reserve this week, Preiss was able to point out many structures, big and small, the fund has helped. Every structure tells a story, whether it’s the well known waterfront home that now houses a business, or the small woodshed behind a home, they all contribute to the communities history. I look forward to further learning about Central Whidbey’s unique and full history and I look forward to sharing the more I learn with my readers. As the weather warms, tourist season convenes and more people will be out exploring. The Coupeville community is doing an amazing job highlighting its history. Let’s keep up the great work and continue supporting programs like the Ebey’s Forever Fund.

Hearts and Hammers a rewarding time Editor, I am a plumber and come by my involvement in Hearts and Hammers honestly. Sometime in the mid 1990s, a south Whidbey Island home builder asked me if I would volunteer a day of work in a community project that was only a year or two old at the time. I had no idea what to expect so I loaded up my truck and showed up bright and early on the first Saturday in May at South Whidbey High School. As I drove from project to project I was greeted by happy sweaty volunteers, grateful homeowners and a wide array of challenging plumbing problems. Since I worked until late in the day, I did not have time to clean up. I just stripped off my coveralls and returned to the school for a great dinner served by volunteers. It was, perhaps, the single best day of my life to that point. Since then I have lost count of the number of Hearts and Hammers Workdays I have participated in. Not every year for sure. I took a couple years off to participate in the Coupeville Water Festival and I was awful sick myself a few years back. Since 2009 I have been helping with the fledgling Central Whidbey Hearts and Hammers. We are a separate organization that got started with the help of the original

South Whidbey group. I am very proud to say that Central Whidbey Hearts and Hammers has the same spirit, and lives the same motto, “Neighbors helping Neighbors.” So Saturday, May 4 we will, again, gather at the fellowship hall of the Coupeville Foursquare church at 7:45 a.m. There will be young and old, churched and unchurched, skilled and unskilled. We will meet up with our house captains and team members; and rain or shine we will go about the joyful work at hand, while a special team of workers stays behind to prepare a wonderful dinner for all the volunteers and homeowners alike. I’ll see you there!

Case resigning from county health department By Nathan Whalen Staff Reporter

Roger Case is winding down his career where he has tended to the health of Island County residents for decades. Case announced he is resigning from his position as Island County health officer and commissioner for Whidbey General Hospital. Those resignations become effective in June. “I think its time for me to go,” Case said Thursday afternoon, “I’m 78 years old and it’s time to do something else.” He has been the Island County Health Officer for 22 years and he has been 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. He said resigning early gives hospital officials a chance to find a replacement. “He was a great mentor for me as I stepped in as president,” Hospital Commissioner Anne Tarrant said. She joined the elected board in 2008 and Case had previously served as the board’s president. She said Case brought a wealth of knowl-

edge, through his work as county health officer and medical background, to the hospital commission. Case, who is a retired naval officer and retired family physician, has more than 55 years of public service. He is quick to highlight his work getting rural health clinics up and running in Island County in the 1990s. One opened in Oak Harbor, which was eventually acquired by Whidbey General Hospital and is the present day North Whidbey Community Clinic on Goldie Road. He noted the hospital is going to face several challenges in the coming years. Whidbey General Hospital will have to enact the affordable health care act, known as Obamacare, in coming years. He described the legislation as a big unknown. The hospital will have rally support to get voters to sign off on bonds to fund a new wing. He said he expects he’ll help rally that support among Whidbey residents. The hospital also has to build a new clinic on South Whidbey Island. Once he retires, he plans to travel in the

coming months to the South Pacific. He wants to visit New Zealand and Guam in the coming months. “We will miss him,” Tarrant said. Whidbey General Hospital officials are looking for someone to fill Case’s seat on the board. The person selected will fill the seat until the November election is certified. Whoever wins the election will assume the vacancy on the board. Interested people must live within District 4 boundaries, which is the Seaplane Base south of Crescent Harbor Drive, the Highway 20 corridor through Oak Harbor and the east side of Oak Harbor, according to information from the Whidbey General Hospital website. She said she hopes the person appointed will run for the seat in the November election. Applications can be sent to Board Chair, Whidbey General Hospital, 101 N. Main St., Coupeville, WA 98239. The commissioners could appoint a replacement during its monthly meeting scheduled 5 p.m., Monday, May 13, at the Whidbey General Hospital conference room. For more information, call 360-678-6756, or email myhospital@whidbeygen.org

Roger Case

Two seats up for election on the Port of Coupeville A U C T I O N Thanks to an unexpected resignation and the recent census, the board of commissioners will see some big changes by the end of the year. Two of the three seats on the port board are up for election in 2013. One open position occurred when the newest member of the board, Laura Blankenship, abruptly resigned in early April. She resigned after serving more than one year of her six-year term. The longest serving port commissioner, Benye Weber, isn’t able to run for her seat. As a result of the 2010 census and the accompanying redistricting to ensure the populations of each district within the boundaries of the Port of Coupeville are roughly equal, her home ended up in a neighboring district. Weber is OK with the boundary change, she wasn’t planning on running for a third term anyway. “Two six-year terms is enough,” Weber said “I was at the point I want to do other things.” She said she wants to

spend more time with her grandchildren. In addition to her service on the Port of Coupeville, Weber said she served 14 years on the Trust Board of Ebey’s Landing and 12 years on the county civil service commission. She is planning to serve until the end of her term. With Weber’s decision and inability to seek a second term, port leaders are preparing for two open seats up for election in November. Jim Patton, executive director for the Port of Coupeville, is advertising for someone to be appointed to Blankenship’s seat on the board. The person appointed would serve until Nov. 26, when the results of the general election is certified. The

person elected in November to Blankenship’s seat would then serve the remainder of the term. The two remaining port commissioners have 90 days to find a replacement. If they fail to accomplish that, then the Board of Island County Commissioners can step in and name a replacement. He said it would be best if a person is appointed to Blankenship’s seat during the Port of Coupeville’s May 8 monthly meeting. That way a person would be in place before the election filing period for elected office, which takes place May 13 through May 17. To apply to be appointed to the vacancy on the board, the person has to reside with-

in District 3, which basically goes from Admiral’s Cove south near the intersection of Highway 525 and Mutiny Bay Road. Applications will be accepted until 4 p.m., Friday, May 3. For more information, call 360-678-5020, or email executivedirector@portofcoupeville.org

Track team, not sun, shines as Coupeville piles up wins By Jim Waller Staff Reporter

The weather didn’t receive a blue ribbon, but the Coupeville High School track teams earned plenty in a pair of meets last week. Amidst the rain and wind, South Whidbey defeated the Wolves in both the boys (67-57) and girls (8154) meets Thursday. The Coupeville teams both finished third Friday in the seven-team La Conner Invitational. Against South Whidbey, Nick Streubel (shot, 42-02; discus, 127-08) and Josiah Campbell (100, 11.99; triple jump, 35-09.5) paced the boys with a pair of wins.

FUNDS: Ebey’s Forever Fund gives out $100,000 in preservation grants From page 1 help fund siding restoration and milling, front door replacement and window replacement. In addition, the owner is replacing the roof with historic style shingles. During renovations, workers were scraping old drywall from the home and found an old hymnal book from the Coupeville Methodist Church inside. The book belonged to Virginia Sherman, who lived in the home as a child. The owner was able to contact Sherman and visit her at her home south of Seattle. “All of the buildings have their own stories,” Preiss said. “It’s fun to uncover.” “We’re the benefactors of these stories.” By year’s end, Ebey’s

Forever Fund will have funded 30 or so projects in the reserve. Driving through the reserve, Preiss can point out small projects here and there that have been completed because of the fund. Many of the projects are about making the structure useable again, whether it’s the foundation on a barn or the roof on a wood shed. “Its those small and subtle projects that we think matter too,” Preiss said. The key to keeping a historical structure is having a good foundation and good roof. The fund also focuses on helping structures find usefulness in today’s society. “One of the best ways to save a building is to have a use,” Matsov said. Of the more than 400 structures registered on the national registry in the re-

serve, roughly 99 percent of them are privately owned. Each structure has historical significance and helps tell the story of Ebey’s Reserve, Preiss said. All tell a different story. The community-driven fund was established four years ago by local resident Ken Pickard, who issued a challenge to the community. Funds are raised through private donations by individuals and businesses on and off the island. Grants require matching by the structure owner. “It’s an incentive for them, a tool for them,” Preiss said. While the fund has issued $200,000 in grants, historically owners have been matching grants two-to-one. “That’s a $600,000 investment in helping sustain our heritage,” Preiss said.

The Comstock Barn, located on Engle Road near Hill Road, also received a grant. Students from the University of Oregon will be up this summer to help with restoration.

PROTECTED: Conservation easement eyed just north of Ebey’s Reserve From page 1 about the easement because it protects a pristine view scape on a visible part of Whidbey Island. “It’s a really exciting conservation easement for

us because it’s on the north side of Ebey’s Reserve where there is little farm protection,” said Pat Powell, executive director for the Whidbey Camano Land Trust. Last year, 17 acres of farmland off Arnold Road near Penn Cove was protected in an easement. She also noted that the National Park Service placed a scenic easement at Grasser’s Hill. Powell said the Muzzall’s will lose some development rights through the easement buy will be able to alter their farming business in the fu-

ture. “This easement allows them a lot of flexibility to change what they produce depending on market changes,” Powell said. Mark Preiss, manager of Ebey’s Landing National Historical Reserve, said the Muzzall Farm is a critical family farm on the northeast part of the reserve. He noted that it’s a Washington Centennial Farm, which is a farm that has been continuously owned by the same family for 100 years.

“The Muzzall family has its own set of important stories to tele and through this easement, those stories will be available for generations to come,” Preiss said. He added that it’s important to recognize that the family made a choice in deciding to get an easement. The Land Trust had secured the Conservation Futures Fund award last year before an appraisal was made on the proposal. Currently several volunteer groups are evaluating the $69,000 proposed award.
