Lowincome Freeland housing advances



S t t I B f



J r E

By JUSTIN BURNETT Staff reporter

It appears a controversial lowincome housing project in Freeland will move forward after all. Teri Anania, executive director of the Island County Housing Authority, confirmed this week that the major permitting problem facing the $6.3 million project is in the process of being resolved. “It’s a huge relief,” Anania said. “We have to keep the momentum going.” Sunny Side Village is a four building, 26-unit low income housing project planned for a nine-acre lot off Fish Road, between Highway 525 and Scenic Avenue. The housing authority has worked on the development since 2008 but those plans nearly fell through earlier this year. Concerns about a nearby well, which supplies water to a large portion of Freeland, were validated when a hydrologist found that the housing complex’s planned septic system would not be enough to keep nitrate levels in the well from exceeding state standards.

Alex McMahon, a first responder with South Whidbey Fire/EMS, runs around a fake car crash at South Whidbey High School. Behind her, Whidbey General Hospital emergency medical technicians fake an attempt to revive student Lauren Breslaw, who was laid on the hood as if she had crashed through the windshield in a head-on DUI car collision.

Faux DUI car wreck preps students for prom By BEN WATANABE Staff reporter Sobbing and stabilized on a stretcher, South Whidbey High School senior Caitlin Christensen averted her face from the gaze of her peers. She just watched another teenager, Lauren Breslaw, be carried

off in a white body bag by Island County Coroner Robert Bishop. It was all fake, a tableau to demonstrate what can and has happened on Whidbey Island when people mix drinking and drugs with driving. But it left an impact. “I think it is very effective,” said Hannah Cotton, a senior leadership student who organized the lesson.

“When you go to a normal assembly it gets students, but when you go to a wreck scene, they see what can really happen other than just talking about it.” “I was on the verge of tears just watching it right as it started, and I knew everything that went behind it and it still moved me.” This class knows the lesson and

the agony all too well. In November 2011, three young men, all under 24, died in an impaired driving single-car collision on Wilkinson Road. Many seniors knew those men: Robert Knight, Charles “Mack” Porter and Marcel “Mick” Poynter. SEE PROM, A9

County’s shoreline master plan takes final shots By JUSTIN BURNETT Staff reporter

Justin Burnett / The Record

ate Port of South Whidbey Commissioner Dennis Gregoire speaks at a public hearing in Coupeville on Wednesday concerning Island County’s Shoreline Master Program. a

Concerned residents and business owners took advantage of their last chance to publicly voice their feelings about Island County’s Shoreline Master Program this week. The state Department of Ecology held an open house and public hearing Wednesday in Coupeville. The agency, which is charged with reviewing and approving the county’s recently adopted program, will accept written comments for several more weeks but this was the department’s only scheduled public

meeting before Ecology officials make a decision. Critics didn’t waste the opportunity as more than 35 people attended the three-hour event. Many took to the microphone to complain about specific sections of the program. The hottest topics concerned aquaculture rules and regulations surrounding existing and future public beach accesses. Ian Jefferds, owner of Penn Cove Shellfish, testified against last minute changes made by the Island County commissioners in December. Language was added that suggests his family’s

mussel farm, in business since 1975, may have to prove that operations are not resulting in “adverse environmental impacts.” Jefferds said the farm has done much to keep the water in Penn Cove clean and while the rule may have been directed at fin fish net pens, he regarded the language as an affront to their long efforts. “This particular regulation is not only misdirected but offensive,” Jefferds said. He didn’t go into specifics at the SEE SHORELINE, A6

Brown said the man, who may have mental issues, was at the bank to visit his safe deposit box when he started acting suspiciously, prompting a bank official to call in a trespassing complaint. The bank’s employees were evacuated in the morning and were allowed to reenter the bank by 10:30 a.m. By noon, bank activity resumed as normal.

A man was handcuffed and taken away by Island County Sheriff’s deputies Friday morning at the Wells Fargo in Freeland. Sheriff Mark Brown said later in the day that the man was not even formally arrested, but the scene caused a stir in the small town as it played out in public. The incident happened shortly after 10 a.m. May 3 at the branch on South Harbor Avenue, just off Highway 525. A local businesswoman was at the bank using its outdoor ATM around 9 a.m. when she saw the suspicious person waiting for the bank to open. “He was just standing there being weird, waiting for the bank to open,” said Rebecca Myers, who works across the street at Northwest Public Relations. “I was trying not to be paranoid.” Myers said the man was

around you,” she said. “It was an interesting morning.” Shortly after she returned to her office, she saw at least two deputies arrive at the bank. The man was handcuffed and driven away by one of the deputies, who eyewitness Sue Ellen White identified as Deputy Frank Gomez. Employees at the branch declined to comment, citing a Wells Fargo policy to have a spokesperson speak with media about possible criminal activities.

What a way to spend the day As this is written a beautiful day is forecast for the Pacific Northwest and Whidbey Island. The sun will be shining, people will be picnicking, fishing, gardening, shopping, relaxing in their lawn chairs and traveling to see friends and relatives. Only on Whidbey Island will scores of volunteers, armed with big hearts and heavy hammers, dedicate the entire day to helping others. Hearts & Hammers has grown to become one of South Whidbey’s great traditions, one in which we take great pride. There’s no sense in embarrassing the founders by again pointing them out by name, but they sure had a great idea years ago and executed it to perfection. Hearts & Hammers is arranged like a military campaign, with a captain designated to head each platoon as they meet and organize at the high school, then fan out to attack 35 houses with hammers, nails, shovels, roofing, gravel, windows, door frames — whatever is needed to bring the homes of the poor and needy up to snuff. At day’s end, all return to the high school for a well-deserved meal, plaudits all around, and to bask in the enjoyment of a day well spent helping others. Homeowners literally become tearful as they watch Hearts & Hammers volunteers save their homes from further deterioration, bring them up to code and give them a new lease on life. Building materials and labors don’t come cheap, and the combined amount donated by Hearts & Hammers each year is monumental. The entire community chips in, with contractors donating construction knowledge, businesses donating materials and people from all backgrounds donating their labor. If they can’t hit a nail on the head with a hammer, they’re put to work cleaning gutters, scrubbing decks or clearing driveways. No one offering to help is turned away. It’s touching to see people of such diverse skills, interests and ages working together. Teenagers work side-by-side with retirees with the common goal of making life a little easier for someone else. The retirees go away knowing they’re still useful to their community, and the kids learn about the joys of community service at a tender age. It’s the gift that keeps on giving, as the kids learn service at a young age and continue it throughout their lives. It’s too late to volunteer to help this year, but money is always needed to prepare for next year’s Hearts & Hammers. Donate on its website or send a check to PO Box 694 Langley, WA 98260. Then next year, give back to yourself by joining one of the Hearts & Hammers crews.

Letters In response

Embrace recycling, but voluntarily To the editor: At the Island County Board of Commissioners meeting on April 22 a capacity crowd of 100-plus people were on hand, primarily to discuss the rescinding of the recycling ordinance that had been passed in late December. During the public comment period the discussion was spirited to say the least. However, there was one common theme between the folks supporting the repeal of the recycling ordinance and those who were not. Everyone in the room felt very passionate about the merits of recycling. It really boiled down to whether we believe in a “nanny state” where our personal responsibility needs to be legislated, or whether individuals can take the initiative to take the time and effort to do those things that are good for Mother Earth.

Yes, there may be a certain number of senior citizens that physically find it difficult to drive to a recycling center, but the needs of these folks could be handled through a recycling hotline. However, for the majority of us, recycling should not be about convenience. Recycling should be done by every household because it is the right thing to do. The argument that some of us are just too busy with children or jobs just doesn’t cut it. Recycling should be a priority and it should be viewed as an opportunity to teach children and families that there are certain activities in life that are more important than other activities. You would have a very hard time convincing me that a few minutes a day spent sorting out recyclables is an unacceptable burden. Commissioner Jill Johnson said it very well when she commented, “By requiring curbside service rather than offering a voluntary service, inherently what the county is asking for is a curbside program that is subsidized by the unwilling to benefit the willing.” Jill Johnson and Kelly Emerson should be commended for voting to repeal an onerous recycling ordinance.

Gun shop

A proposed sign of the times To the editor: Just months after the beautiful five and six year olds were gunned down in Newtown, Conn., like ducks at a carnival, someone thought it was OK to open a gun store next to our Island pharmacy. What’s going on? This is a peaceful place that kept Walmart at bay and McDonald’s out but we let in a gun store! This seems too completely strange to be true. Perhaps we should hang a sign, “Welcome to South Whidbey — now graced by our own gun store — a progressive community.” CARRIE LEWIS Langley

Despite having sunk nearly $1 million into the project, the housing authority had no other choice but to begin looking at a pricey on-site treatment plant. At the time, it was unclear whether the additional expense could be borne, putting the entire project in jeopardy. Anania said those fears have been put to rest. The new system is expected to cost about $300,000. About half of that was secured from a contingency fund and the rest was found within the existing budget. According to Keith Higman, director of Island County Public Health, the hydrologist’s determination put the housing authority “back to square one” in terms of septic permitting. Unlike traditional septic systems, large on-site treatment plants treat effluent above the surface so it can be reused for things such as

irrigation, watering landscaping or flushing toilets. “You don’t just dispose of it back into the ground,” he said. According to Higman, permitting of such systems fall under the purview of the state Department of Health. He speculated that the state’s review could delay the development’s ground breaking. Anania confirmed that construction is expected to be pushed back about three months. The plan had been to start in the summer but now the best guess is sometime this fall. “I’m hoping all the stars align correctly for us,” Anania said. The housing authority is not an entity of Island County government but a state special purpose district that aims to provide housing for elderly and low-income residents. The units at Sunny View will add to the 110 public housing units the organization owns and manages on properties in Oak Harbor, Coupeville and Langley.

meeting, but one example of the farm’s water quality improvement efforts took place in 2010 when the company contributed $6,000 to the Port of Coupeville to help with the cost of a pumpout station at the Coupeville Wharf. Fin fish net pens for non-native species was another controversial issue. Following overwhelming public testimony against such facilities last year, the commissioners agreed to ban them outright but the prohibition has been a source of heartburn for Ecology officials. “We feel it may be too restrictive to accommodate this water-dependent use, which conflicts with some of the key elements of the Shoreline Management Act,” said David Pater, a shoreline planner with Ecology and the official reviewing the county’s plan, during Wednesday’s meeting.

Penn Cove Shellfish owner Ian Jefferds speaks against sections of Island County’s recently adopted Shoreline Management Program at a hearing in Coupeville on Wednesday. Legislature in 1972, the Act requires municipalities to adopt master programs that guide development on and around the waterfront, including lakes and rivers. The foundation of the legislation is to reduce the impact of development on the environment. One of the chief ways of accomplishing that is by limiting the types

of uses to those that cannot exist anywhere else, such as ferry docks or, in this case fish farms. The agency has long held the position that fish farms they are one of a few allowed water-dependent uses and cannot simply be outlawed. But many feel Ecology’s stand is contradictory to the underlying goal of the Act. Steve Erickson, a founder of Whidbey Environmental Action Network, called the facilities “feed lots” that produce and release massive amounts of untreated sewage into Puget Sound. He accused the department of being a “captive of the industry,” representing the wishes of lobbyists over

the expressed interest of the public on behalf of the environment. “This is a classic example of what’s called a captive agency, where the industry the agency is supposed to regulate has taken over the agency,” he said. There were also several representatives of the recently renamed beach access citizen advocacy group, Island Beach Access. Among them were founder Mike McVay, a Langley resident. He expressed concerns that the program goals for maintaining existing and creating new public accesses may be difficult to enforce. McVay also questioned why the county’s public access map was not updated. The current version is incomplete and inaccurate, he said. “This isn’t going to go away,” said McVay, concerning encroachment by private property owners. “It’s only going to get more competitive and combative.” He wrapped by thanking Ecology officials for their time and for their understanding. “Sorry you have to listen to us bully you like this,” said McVay, earning a round of chuckling from the crowd.

Soccer routs Blaine, Baker in district playoffs By BEN WATANABE Staff reporter South Whidbey shed blood for its 1A District 1 victory over Mount Baker on Thursday. Sacrificing their bodies, the Falcon soccer players challenged every header, took contact and gave it, too. It all paid off at the end of the 80-minute match when South Whidbey won, 2-1. “It’s great for the fans and great for us, there are a lot of seniors on this team,” said Falcon senior Stephen Lyons. “We don’t want to give up playing competitive soccer.” Spirited play by the Mountaineers and the Falcons carried off the field, too. Adult fans began bickering near the bleachers at game’s end over sportsmanship. Specifically, South Whidbey fans were upset with Mount Baker fans over their reaction to a head-to-head injury Falcon junior Trey Adams suffered. His head bleeding, Adams left the game in the 71st minute and did not return. His injury came long after the Falcons scored the go-ahead goal in the 51st minute. South Whidbey led at the end of the first half. Jack Hood threw the ball into the box, where Lyons booted in the loose ball in the 38th.

Falcon senior Sam Turpin high kicks to prevent Mount Baker senior Ruslan Zakurdayev from clearing the ball in the second half of the 1A District 1 playoff match Thursday. Turpin scored a goal earlier in the game which South Whidbey won, 2-1. Things took a turn in Mount Baker’s favor at the second half’s start. The Mountaineers stole possession from the Falcons, who started with the ball, and quickly turned that into a 42nd minute goal by Mountaineer senior Edgar Zavala in the box. “We come out flat,” said Falcon senior Sam Turpin. “There are very few games we come out hottest in

Crabs erupt for four runs in their half to finish the scoring in Mountlake Terrace. The Crabs pounded out 12 hits in six innings. Leading the hit parade were Connor Antich, Austin Sterba, Will Simms, Trent Piehler and Maxfield Freidman with two hits each. Eight different players crossed the plate providing a balanced attack throughout the lineup. Trent Piehler pitched three innings and was relieved by Lewis Pope. Simms sealed the game with the final four outs to

the first half.” “If we can have two second halves, that would put a hurt on teams.” South Whidbey fought its way back with through ball after through ball. Finally, one went in for Turpin. Midfielder Guy Sparkman beat several Mountaineers for a loose ball and then lofted it over the defenders. Turpin caught it with his left

foot, tapped it to his right where the zipped it into the back of the net. “You stop thinking about everything else and just focus on putting it in the back of the net,” Turpin said. In the final 10 minutes, Mount Baker pressed hard on offense. South Whidbey’s defense held, relying on its midfielders to push the ball up. One play showed Sparkman is the Falcons’ vocal leader. Turpin missed a pass from Sparkman, fell trying to recover it and the Mountaineers threw in the ball with Turpin still on the ground, exhausted from nearly 60 minutes of play. Sparkman was having none of it. “Sam, get up,” Sparkman yelled, like a trainer to a prizefighter. Three yellow cards were issued in the testy match to Adams, Falcon senior Stephen Lyons and Mountaineer senior Ruslan Zakurdayev. With the victory, South Whidbey punched its ticket to the tri-district tournament. The past two seasons, the Falcons were eliminated in the 2A District 1 playoffs and failed to advance to the regional round. The Falcons will look for more sacrifice as they take another step toward the 1A state tournament against Lynden Christian at 2 p.m. Saturday.

Backs against the wall, the Falcon baseball players live to play another day. South Whidbey beat Blaine 7-2 on Thursday behind a complete game by pitcher Brent Piehler. Crucial hitting by a pair of Falcons guided South Whidbey to victory. Senior Jack Lewis went 2-for-2 with two RBI and sophomore Ricky Muzzy hit 3-for-3 with one RBI. Jake Sladky batted 2-for-4. The win kept South Whidbey in the 1A District 1 baseball tournament after a late meltdown against Mount Baker on Wednesday. South Whidbey travels to Blaine to play Lynden Christian at 1 p.m. Saturday. South Whidbey’s recipe for success went like an egg in the microwave against Mount Baker in a 16-8 district playoff loss. The Falcons managed seven wins in the regular season thanks to lowscoring games and timely late-game runs. Against the Mountaineers, however, the task was too tall to surmount.

followed by a 10-year tenure at the flagship REI store. During that time, John moved to Bremerton, where he found his urban oasis that he named “Hawkwood,” a wooded property in the Manette district, where he lived for eight years. John was an avid toy and comic book collector. He enjoyed animation, particularly Anime. He loved older jazz and rock music. In May of 2010, John suffered a stroke that paralyzed him for several weeks. After rehabilitation, he was released, only to learn that a fire had destroyed his home that very day. After living in temporary quarters, he moved to Whidbey Island in October 2011. He was active at the Freeland Library, enjoyed the WAIF Thrift Store, and his morning java at the WiFire Café. John was preceded in death by both parents, Marcus Jr. and Virginia Loy. He is survived by three brothers: Bennett Loy, his wife Terri, and daughter Allegra (Amarillo, Tex.); Marcus A. Loy III (San Francisco); and Michael Loy (Langley). He is also survived by step-sister Gayle McKool (Seattle) and step-brother Kent Anschutz (Austin, Tex.). A celebration of his life is being planned by his dear friends in Kitsap County in the near future. John was a very good man, brother, uncle, cousin and friend. We will all miss you, Hawk.

existing $2 fee in place, that $1 represents about one-third of the program's budget. The new legislation also specifies about $200,000 in funding for a vessel turn-in program. Aimed at smaller recreational vessels, this should reduce the number of boats sold for $1 on Craigslist by owners who can't afford to sell them properly, Ferris said. "It would try to get these vessels out of the water while they are still floating," she said. Under the bill, state owned boats would need to be inspected before being sold as would vessels over 65 feet in length that are more than 40 years old. The idea is to help potential buyers know just what they are getting into before they take on a floating hulk they can't afford to fix up, Ferris said. Department of Ecology officials would also have the power to get administrative warrants — through the courts — to board and inspect potential problem vessels. Had that option existed this time last year, much of the environmental impact of the Deep Sea's sinking may have been avoided. "It definitely would have gotten someone onboard and gotten the fuel removed," Ferris said. Finally, vessel registration violations would be decriminalized. While that may seem like a step backward, officials believe it could lead to greater

John David “Hawk” Loy succumbed to a stroke and passed away peacefully on the evening of Feb. 27, 2013, in Freeland. His passing was unexpected and he will be dearly missed by his family and friends. John was born April 6, 1950, in Hinton, Okla. His family moved numerous times before his graduation from Plano High School in Texas. During his senior year he was the editor and photographer for his school newspaper, Wildcat Tales. He was active in sports, including track and field events and cross-country. He was a dedicated Boy Scout, earning the rank of Life Scout. After graduation, John attended Colorado State University in Ft. Collins. He was a talented photographer, was well-read, and was a creative writer himself. He was fond of backpacking and climbing in his beloved Olympic Mountains. John was very intelligent, had a unique sense of humor and always enjoyed sharing a “frosty beverage” with friends. He had quite the gift of gab, and his camping buddies dubbed him “Constant Comment” for his garrulous nature. It was all in good fun, and he was a pleasure to be around during campfires, barbecues, hootenannies and other group gatherings. He was quite athletic, was ambidextrous, and enjoyed bicycle riding, shooting hoops, practicing his golf swing, and was a huge Seattle Mariners and Seahawks fan. John moved to Seattle in the early 1970s, and lived in the same apartment on First Hill for over 25 years. He was a bicycle messenger for 10 years for Bucky’s Messenger Service, where he received his nickname, “Hawk.” He worked for seven years at Julia’s Restaurant in Wallingford,

operates just west of the Coupeville Wharf, was one of those most affected by the sinking of the Deep Sea last year. The 140-foot crab boat caught fire and then went down just outside the farm's mussel rafts, spilling thousands of gallons of diesel fuel into Penn Cove. The old boat was illegally moored in the spot for months. State and federal efforts to contain the spill, raise and dispose of the vessel cost taxpayers a whopping $5.4 million. According to Melissa Ferris, chief of the state Department of Natural Resources's Derelict Vessel Removal Program, the state is currently aware of about 165 problem vessels. Special one-time funding helped whittle down the number from more than 200 last year but the list never stops growing, she said. "We get new ones reported to us two or three times a week," Ferris said. This bill is not landmark legislation that will permanently end the threat of old boats sinking and polluting Puget Sound. But it will add a handful of measures that will help state regulators better address the ongoing issue, Ferris said. "There's not going to be a night or day difference with the passage of this bill. But in the long run it should leave us with fewer derelict vessels to deal with," she said. First and foremost, it retains a $1 registration fee that was set to expire next year. With an

"It's nice to know they are making progress and doing something about the problem," said Ian Jefferds, owner of Penn Cove Shellfish. The mussel farm, which

The Deep Sea, a 140-foot crab boat that sank in Penn Cove last year, sits in her slings the day of her raising. New legislation recently sent to Gov. Jay Inslee for approval aims to head off such disaster. accountability and oversight. That will generate additional revenue for other state programs while also helping keep better track of derelict vessel owners should they pass through multiple hands, Ferris said. According to Ferris, the bill was a bi-partisan effort and widely supported in the House and Senate though she singled out Rep. Norma Smith, R-Clinton, as one of a few who championed the new legislation. Smith called the legislation a "significant first step" toward "fundamental" change in the way the state addresses derelict vessels. And more change is on the way, she said, as additional legislation will be proposed next year. It will revamp owner responsibilities, further refine guidelines for public and private vessels before their sale, and revise protocols and regulatory obstacles that make disposing old vessels difficult. "There is a potential tsunami of really old vessels coming down the pike and we need to

have a plan in place now to deal with them," Smith said. "That's what this is really all about." Many in Coupeville, such as Jefferds, are grateful for the support in Olympia and at home. His company is still feeling the financial and operational sting from the sinking. When the Deep Sea went down, commercial and recreational shellfish harvesting was closed and an annual seed-set at the farm delayed. Jefferds was able to move the crop to the company's other farm in Quilcene but he's been juggling assets and employees for nearly a year to deal with the fiasco. "We'll be back in full form here in a few months," Jefferds said. "It's just been frustrating because the delay is a direct result of this oil spill." He said he has submitted a claim for damages to a federal oil spill fund, but it has yet to be settled. He declined to release the amount sought, saying only that it amounted to "lost business" while operations were shut down.

Saturday, May 4, 2013 • The South Whidbey Record


Ben Watanabe / The Record

Students observe a DUI demonstration at South Whidbey High School two days before the school’s prom. In front of them is student Lauren Breslaw, who acted like she died from injuries in a head-on car crash and was put in a body bag.


If they didn’t, they remember when one of their mothers addressed them at last year’s pre-prom assembly. Combined with the dramatization this week, Cotton hopes her peers will stay sober or at least get a ride home from prom tonight. “They’ve realized that it’s an extremely dangerous thing,” Cotton said. “You hear about it, and once you see it with people who have been affected by it, it

really gets the students.” Whidbey Island parents and students are wary of prom driving for a reason: kids drink. Island County students take a Healthy Youth Survey every two years, and the 2010 report showed 24 percent of 10th grade students have used alcohol, and one in three high school seniors used alcohol within 30 days of taking the survey. A 2009 Washington Traffic Safety Commission report stated there were 1,003 fatal crashes between 2004 and

2008 involving a driver age 16 to 25 that resulted in a total of 1,142 deaths. More than half of those deaths, 648, occurred in rural areas. The highest fatality rates

Page A9

are on rural county roads at 27 percent and state highways at 22.2 percent, just like the roads on South Whidbey. According to a 2012 commission report, 715 impaired driving-related serious car crash injuries occurred between midnight and 3 a.m., with another 623 between 9 and midnight. Those are the hours that South Whidbey’s prom attendees will likely hit the roads. Cotton hoped the scenes she and her leadership classmates organized would be a last-ditch deterrent. The first scene was a head-on car crash that sent Breslaw through the windshield onto the hood. After brief resuscitation attempts by Whidbey General Hospital and South Whidbey Fire/ EMS responders, Breslaw’s fake blood-covered body and prom dress were shielded with a white sheet then put in a body bag. Her date, senior Cameron Baldwin, failed a

field sobriety test of walking a straight line. A Washington State Patrol trooper read him his Miranda rights, cuffed him and drove him away. Christensen was cut out of the passenger side of her car, put on a stretcher and loaded into a Whidbey General aid truck with senior Cameron Coupe and Sage Monet. “I hope that the message is getting there to as many as we can, however we can,” said Mike Cotton, a deputy chief with South Whidbey Fire/EMS whose daughter organized the DUI prevention event. “As a parent, I am concerned about my daughter and her friends as to what could happen on prom night.” After the car crash scene in the bus lane near the high school’s main entrance, stu-

dents attended the prom assembly. They found a mock court where Judge Alan Hancock presided over a vehicular homicide and vehicular assault case. Then came the macabre masterpiece, a faux funeral for Breslaw. Principal John Patton spoke to the students. He has worked at the high school for several years and knew the three young men who died in November 2011. He remembered answering the phone call that the former students died in a DUI-related crash. “John Patton was very emotional about his speech in the auditorium,” Cotton recalled. “He didn’t want any more phone calls regarding events like this.” The junior/senior prom is May 4 at Freeland Hall.

Freeland horses drafted for farm work By JUSTIN BURNETT Staff reporter Two draft horses named Otto and Jim took Central Whidbey on a ride back in time last week. Hired by a local farmer, the massive American Belgians and their owner, Freeland resident Greg Lange, spent most of Tuesday seeding a seven-acre field east of Engle Road. “When was the last time this happened,” wondered Georgina Silby, marveling at a once common sight. Silby hired the team as an experiment in mixed power for agriculture. She is not against using modern farm equipment and fully intends to harvest later this year with a combine. But for some small-scale uses, such as seeding a relatively tiny field, it may make sense as a green alternative to a diesel tractor, she said. Silby hasn’t received a bill

yet so it remains to be seen whether it will be cost effective. “We’ll see,” Silby said. “It’s an experiment.” “This is kinda like a research project.” Lange, owner of Draftworks Horse Logging and Custom Farming, came to Whidbey from Port Angeles about six months ago, where he specialized in “forest stand improvement,” or sustainable, low-impact thinning. Lange is now applying the trade to agriculture. He says

it’s “the right thing to do” and is “all part of working with horses,” which is something he loves doing. He’s also interested in the idea of farming by horsepower. “I enjoy the concept of producing food with animals,” Lange said. And to answer Silby’s question, it’s only been a few weeks since horses worked land on Central Whidbey. He plowed a field for Linda Bartlett and Valerie Reuther earlier this month. SEE HORSE, A11

Former Langley Mayor Larry Kwarsick will get another month working as a special planning consultant for Coupeville. The Town Council last week supported a recommendation from Mayor Nancy Conard to extend Kwarsick’s contract another 30 days, until May 31. Their vote was unanimous, according to Town Councilman Bob Clay, who also serves as mayor pro tem. In an interview after the meeting, Clay said the council agreed to extend Kwarsick’s contract for several reasons. First and foremost, Conard has not yet hired a replacement and Kwarsick’s threemonth contract expired with no one to fill his shoes. Second, Coupeville is seeing a small bump in development and a planner is needed, Clay said. “There is still work that needs to be done,” he said.

“But we all agreed there is a finite end to all of this.” Conard is in the process of interviewing applicants for the job and expects to have a permanent replacement for Kwarsick soon. She asked for an extension because it’s unclear when that person will report for work. Kwarsick is the longtime former town planner and, until recently, was also the mayor of Langley. All that came to an end in December when he pleaded guilty to misdemeanor malfeasance in Island County Superior Court. He admitted to altering the conditions of a permit for a family member’s home in 2011 while working as Langley’s planning head. He resigned as mayor and asked the Town Council to end his contract as town planner. They agreed but hired him as a special consultant at a rate of $50 an hour while a replacement was sought. That contract had a sunset of 90 days and ended in March.

Talk about wool on Whidbey

Break on through to the other side

Constance Wiseman, a sheep shearer and mini wool mill operator on Whidbey, will talk about the current situation for Western Washington wool Tuesday, May 14 at 7 p.m. at the Deer Lagoon Grange on Bayview Road. How is wool classified, who buys it, what it is worth and where does it go? If you have a non-traditional use for wool, come and share your information. This meeting is a Grange class for anybody who is interested in sheep and their products. It would be a great opportunity for people who are thinking about raising sheep, to meet up with other sheep raisers. Free, no registration required. Call 321-4027.

Rabbi Jesus, while on a fishing boat said, “Let us go to the other side.” On casual reading, most of us think that it was a pure geographical location, “Let’s go to the other side of the lake.” It wasn’t. The “other side” meant the non-Jews, the Gentiles, in particular the Greeks. A devout Jew in Jesus’ day would never consider going to the “other side.” The other side to them – was the “wrong side.” Jesus reveals his heart of love and concern for all people, even people on the other side; the other side politically, the other side morally, the other side racially. The list could go on and on. We all have

County’s decision to limit Oak Harbor growth stands By JESSIE STENSLAND Staff reporter Island County prevailed once again in litigation over the City of Oak Harbor’s efforts to expand its western boundaries. In an opinion released Monday, a Thurston County judge rejected the city’s appeal of the Western Washington Growth Management Hearings Board’s 2011 decision upholding the county’s adoption of the urban growth area update. The judge’s decision ends an eight-year saga that began after city leaders concluded they needed to expand the city’s urban growth area, known as the UGA, by 180 acres to accommodate 20 years of growth. The UGA is land adjacent to city limits which is earmarked for annexation. Gregory Banks, Island County prosecuting attorney saw the judge’s action as a clear win for the county. “The county’s decision protected over 170 acres of farm lands and rural lands from being unnecessarily designated as urban growth areas. Under state law, new highdensity urban development can only occur in designated urban growth areas, or exist-


ing urban areas,” Banks said in a release. “In the first round of the city’s appeal, the Growth Management Hearings Board found that Island County’s decision properly prevented further urban sprawl by focusing growth within the existing UGA.” The county commissioners, who have ultimate authority over the shape of UGAs, delayed a decision for years and then surprised city leaders in 2011 by refusing the expansion request beyond an 18-acre commercial parcel. City officials appealed to the Growth Management Hearings Board and lost, then appealed to the Superior Court, and again lost on all issues. Washington Environmental Action Network, which argued on the county’s side in court, hailed the decision as an environmental victory that protects the fragile Swan Lake coastal lagoon from urbanization. “Expansion of the Oak Harbor UGA would be bad for Swan Lake, bad for the environment, and bad for the taxpayers. The last thing Oak Harbor needs is more lowdensity urban sprawl,” WEAN

cent, the staff estimated. Island County planners initially issued “a mitigated determination of non-significance” for the UGA appeal, finding that it wouldn’t harm the environment as long as certain conditions were met. The county later withdrew the determination after the city and a couple of environmental groups appealed. The issue lingered unresolved for years until city officials pushed county officials to take action

in 2011. The commissioners approved only the 18-acre expansion, concluding that city planners underestimated the amount of residential land already in the city and found there was no need for additional residentially zoned land. Island County was represented in the lawsuit by Dan Mitchell, deputy prosecuting attorney. The city was represented by attorney Susan Drummond of Kirkland.

judge would rule in the city’s favor. Tuesday, Dudley noted the judge acknowledged problems with communication between the county and city. “The process is already a lot different,” he said. “We look forward to working with the county this time around.” The underlying issue is whether the city should expand. The city’s proposal would have allowed for 400 new homes. The Oak Harbor City Council approved the expansion of the UGA during the 2005 update and sent it on to the county to render a decision. The main rationale behind the proposed expansion was to accommodate growth in the city over 20 years. Members of the county planning commission felt that more room for homes would bring more affordable housing to the area. City planning staff’s landuse analysis found that the city’s current UGA could accommodate the city’s projected 2025 population, plus an additional 6 percent. The proposed UGA expansion would grow that capacity to 126 per-

spokesman Steve Erickson said. “It’s time for the city to grow up, not out.” The opinion may put on hold city leaders’ plans to expand residential areas into the county, including bringing historic Fakkema farm within city limits, but both city and county planners are already beginning the 2016 comprehensive plan update, which will give the city another shot at the issue. Oak Harbor Mayor Scott Dudley and Island County Commissioner Jill Johnson were on opposite sides of the lawsuit — and neither were in office when the controversy began — but they both agree that the process will go smoother this time around with improved communication between planning departments. “The process could have been handled better,” Johnson said. “We’re taking lessons from the past so we don’t have a repeat of what happened.” Dudley said he was disappointed by the decision. He went to the April 19 hearing before Thurston County Judge Erik Price and said afterward that he was optimistic that the

Ceremony celebrates long awaited marina project By JIM LARSEN Staff reporter The start of long-awaited improvements to the marina in Langley was cause enough for a groundbreaking ceremony Wednesday. Since work was happening over the water, no effort was made to actually break ground but a proud group of 20 or more political leaders and community boosters gathered to gloat in their success. Also attending was contractor Mike Carlson of Mike Carlson Enterprises, and workers from subcontractor Neptune Marine. Three elected officials spoke, perhaps setting a world record for the shortest speeches by a trio of politicians. Port of South Whidbey President Curt Gordon, standing beside a schematic harbor display perched above the beach on an easel, briefly described the $2.4 million project and thanked Congressman Rick Larsen for helping get a crucial Army Corps of Engineers permit that was stuck in the gears of the bureaucratic hopper. “We called in for help and all of a sudden paperwork started flowing,” Gordon said.

Larsen credited a couple of staff members for getting the Army Corps’ attention. “We helped the Corps see through their pile that this was ready to go,” he said. Gordon credited the effort with allowing construction to start this year rather than next. Both also pointed out that this is phase one of building an even larger marina. “It’s great to be at this point,” Larsen said. “You can’t have a big league economy with little league infrastructure.” County Commissioner Helen Price Johnson was credited with helping the port win a $1.2 million economic development grant. She recalled it was one of her first successes after taking office in 2009. “This will have a ripple effect on the economy,” she added. Lacking champagne, hors d’oeuvres or even a hot dog to share, Gordon brought the event to a close with a simple comment. “We’re under way now,” he said, glancing toward the harbor. “It’s going on right now.” The crowd cheered and slowly dispersed.
