Filing week offers open positions

Helping Hands

By Nathan Whalen Staff Reporter

People interested in serving in elected office have to file their candidacy next week with the Island County Auditor’s Office in order to get on the ballot. Local offices will highlight the November general election in 2013. The Coupeville Town Council, the Coupeville School Board, Port of Coupeville, Whidbey General Hospital and the all of the junior taxing districts will have seats up for election this year. Many of those entities have more than one seat up for election. People interested in running for public office will need to file with the auditor’s office. Filing period is 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. each day from Monday, May 13 through Friday May 17. Although the elections office is typically closed on Fridays, Deputy Auditor Michele Reagan said the office will remain open May 17. Potential candidates also have an online option for filing for public office. They can file online by going to www.islandcounty. net and click the “elections” tab for more information. Reagan said the online option is a lot easier for people especially if they are on Whidbey during filing week. It also gives See ELECTION, page 8

Committee to discuss next school budget By Nathan Whalen Staff Reporter

An eight-member budget committee formed to examine the upcoming budget for the Coupeville School District. They will hold a public meeting at the end of the month to discuss the pending budget. School officials don’t have a dollar amount yet for next year’s budget. They are waiting for information from the state Legislature. They aren’t expecting many changes from the previous year’s budget. “We’re trying, as close as possible, to See COMMITTEE, page 8

Hearts & Hammers hosts work day By Nathan Whalen Staff Reporter

One hundred-year-old Leone Argent has lived on her property near Coupeville since she was 7. A group of volunteers visited the former school teacher Saturday to make sure her home stays in good shape so Argent can continue to live there. They were a handful of the more than 100 volunteers participating in the Central Whidbey Hearts and Hammers workday Saturday. Eight volunteers visited Argent’s home, during the workday. The group was busy cleaning the flower beds, replacing a large wooden planter, scooping muck out of the gutters and cleaning the walkways. “It’s a big job that’s beyond me,” Argent said. She has lived in her current house on the property for more than 30 years. She’s had a hand in making sure it stays up-todate too. She said she helped install her patio and she, along with her son, installed a roof on her home years ago.

“When you turn 100, you have to give up a few things,” Argent said. She surpassed the century mark in January and marked the day with a celebration at the Jenne Farm. She taught elementary school for 35 years in the Coupeville School District. Saturday’s work day wasn’t the first time volunteers gave Argent a helping hand. Last year her house was painted during the annual event. The volunteers started their day at Living Hope Foursquare Church, located on Broadway in Coupeville, where they enjoyed a light breakfast, received an update on safety and posed for a group shot before they scattered to the 20 homes whose owners asked for help from the nonprofit group.

“These people are really courageous in coming forward and asking people for help,” said volunteer Kelly Keilwitz while addressing the group Saturday morning. Started in 2008, Central Whidbey Hearts and Hammers is an offshoot of the South Whidbey group that has been helping homeowners on the south end since 1993. Volunteers help elderly and low-income homeowners with projects around the house. These projects help maintain the home, which in some cases, allows them to continue living there. They normally complete these projects during the annual workday. About a dozen or so volunteers visited See VOLUNTEERS, page 8

Preservation project a journey to creating a home New historic home owner committed to preserving structure By Megan Hansen Editor

Kathy Baxter wasn’t necessarily looking for a major construction project when she decided to buy a home on Central Whidbey last summer. Although she did have an idea in mind of what she wanted, she said she didn’t think she would find it. Two weeks later and her dream home popped up and was within her price range. Baxter is now the proud owner of the Perkins House, built in 1890 and located on Ebey Road in Ebey’s Reserve. But it wasn’t as easy as that. Baxter overcame many challenges while purchasing the home, including other offers on the structure and financing. It took Baxter six months to secure financing. There are only a few banks that will do construction loans, she said. “The historic restoration didn’t matter to the bank at all.” “It does add cost and complexity.” There was also the challenge of finding a construction company that could do the work. After securing financing in January, Baxter also took the opportunity to apply for a Ebey’s Forever Fund grant. She is one of a dozen owners of historic structures in Ebey’s Reserve receiving

funding this year. Baxter is doing a complete restoration on the property, including restoring historic windows, doors and siding of the home. When stripping the home to its frame, Baxter said the original framing for windows was found as well as a door that was covered. While the door isn’t conducive to creating feng shui in the home, Baxter said preserving a historic home has its compromises. “When you’re doing a historic preservation you can’t really be dogmatic about what I want,” she said. “It’s about how can I give life back to this house.” Construction is well underway, with new roofing installed, old siding removed and interior being stripped. What’s been unearthed through all the layers of life is the soul of the home. “The wonderful thing about this house is the more we peel back, the more quality we’re finding,” Baxter said. Underneath the siding was more siding, original to the structure. Underneath the carpet and subfloor — hardwood floors. The frame of the house reveals healthy wood more than a century old. “The interior’s been there all along, it’s just sort of been masked,” she said. One fun aspect for Baxter

And she’s been able to find tangible evidence of it. While removing drywall, a paper book of Christmas songs from the local church was found. Written on it, Virginia Sherman’s name. Sherman lived in the home in the 1930s as a child. Baxter also removed probably 20 layers of wallpaper. While visiting with past homeowners, she said she learned wallpapering was a popular hobby. While getting financing off the ground proved to be the biggest challenge, Baxter said she is surprised there haven’t really been any structural challenges. “I’ve been incredibly

lucky,” she said. And she says she wouldn’t have been able to do it without the help of the reserve. “The help from this grant is helping so I can do an absolute preservation” Baxter said. “Annie (Kidd Matsov) and Mark (Preiss) have been an absolutely amazing enthusiastic resource.” “They helped me connect to the community and history.” Members of the community have also stepped up to lend a helping hand. Recently a work party was held to help remove old siding. “It didn’t take me very long to realize people in this community care about this property,” Baxter said. “It’s really become a community project.”

Well-armed women start blossoming By Nathan Whalen Staff Reporter

Three gun enthusiasts are forming a group on Central Whidbey Island to provide a supportive, encouraging environment for women interested in learning every aspect of shooting. The Well Armed Woman Whidbey Island Chapter is looking for members. The group is holding its first meeting and shoots 2-4 p.m., on Mothers Day, Sunday, May 12 at the Central Whidbey Sportsman’s Association located at 973 Safari Lane near Outlying Field. The new group is being organized by shooters Linda Pickering, Pam White and Tracey Blanchard. They have been recruiting people for a little more than a month and around 16 women have signed up so far. White said the group will offer a nice, safe and fun environment to learn all aspects about shooting. “Our hope is to get women shooting more comfortably,” Blanchard said, adding members will improve their skills without being in a competitive environment. She hopes the group will help reduce the fear newcomers may have about guns. The monthly meetings for the group will consist of one hour of classroom instruction covering such topics as conceal/carry laws, home de-

Following the classroom instruction, members will spend an hour on the shooting range. The organizers don’t know the experience level of the members yet, but they will have several guns available during the event for women who are thinking about joining the chapter to try. White said that she is an

National Rifle Association certified instructor. The Well Armed Woman was formed last year by an entrepreneur and handgun instruction Carrie Lightfoot. Since that time, chapters have popped up throughout

the United States. The Well Armed Woman strives “to educate, equip and empower women for self defense and to expand the world of firearms and to be the voice for women everywhere,” according to information posted

on The Well Armed Woman website. The organizers of the Whidbey Island chapter heard about The Well Armed Woman through relatives living in other states. In addition to the Whidbey Island chapter, other groups in Washington state are based in Snohomish County and Auburn, according to The Well Armed Woman website. Pickering said it’s a coincidence that the group’s first meeting will take place on Mother’s Day. When organizing the group, they found that the second Sunday of the month is the best time they could get together. The Central Whidbey Sportsman’s Association has previously offered several well-attended woman’s fire-

Opinion page is open to all points of view Everyone has an opinion. I may not agree with your opinion and you may not agree with mine, but that’s what makes this society so great. Megan Hansen We can have a Some perspective healthy debate on a topic and agree to disagree. My goal for the opinion page in this newspaper is to be abundant with all kinds of opinion. Each week you will see mine clearly displayed in this column with my name and photo attached. You will also see letters to the editor from people throughout our community as well as the occasional guest column. Because it appears in this newspaper, does not mean I necessarily agree with it. Nor does it reflect the opinion of the newspaper. I don’t filter opinions to meet any kind of agenda. Last week I ran a guest editorial from a local resident who felt strongly about a bill being proposed suggesting business owners have the right to refuse service to homosexuals because of their religious beliefs. I also ran a cartoon by a local cartoonist that reflects opinion about the case that prompted a bill. The case refers to a Richland florist who declined to provide service for a gay wedding. The cartoon shows the florist referencing her relationship with Jesus Christ. In the cartoon, Jesus is shown as a man in a suit, with horns and the word discrimination over him. My understanding of the cartoon is that the man is a metaphor for the woman’s skewed perception of Christianity. After running the cartoon I received a phone call from a community member who disagreed with the cartoon. She was offended by it and wants an apology. As with anyone who has a differing opinion, I suggested she write a letter to the editor. It is included on this page. I’m sorry she was offended by it, but I am not sorry I ran it. Just because you don’t agree with someone else’s opinion doesn’t mean it isn’t valid. — Megan Hansen is editor of The Whidbey Examiner. She can be reached at mhansen@whidbeynewsgroup. com

Paper was wrong to run cartoon Editor, I wish to express my outrage at the Arlene’s Flowers political cartoon illustrated by Milt Priggee of Oak Harbor in last week’s Whidbey Examiner. Mr. Priggee depicted Jesus as an evil horned thug. I have noticed that, more and more, it is seemingly becoming acceptable to mock Jesus Christ. Sadly, it is somewhat expected to come from the main-stream media these days. Not only is it despicable and insulting when this is done in the larger publications, but when it happens right here in our small-town community and approved by our local newspaper editors and their publisher, well what gives? As a pre-Vatican Council II Catholic and local business owner with A Touch of Dutch, I find myself angered, ashamed and saddened at the same time. The Whidbey Examiner was wrong and I ask them to make a public apology. On a separate note, unfortunately the debate battle over homosexual marriage ‘in the here and now’ will never be won by the Christians. That is not the important thing as in the end the war will be won. The de-

bate Mr. Harry Anderson makes is indicative of something which goes even deeper and more fundamental, which is the fact that we have lost the capacity even to have a coherent and moral conversation about these issues. To highlight the problem, Justice Elena Kagan, who said in reference to the U.S. Supreme Court’s same-sex marriage deliberations, “Whenever a lawyer makes a moral observation in a case such as this, for me, the red flag of discrimination goes up.” Oh really? As opposed to the Divine and Natural law, it seems more and more unfortunate that human civil laws now want to trump and tie our hands. Why can’t we have a conversation on moral issues? Why do intelligent people shout “discrimination!” and froth at the suggestion of an objective moral order? Why are so many ready to follow a standard of right and wrong by way of surveys and polls? This path surely seems to lead the herd right over the moral cliff. Unfortunately, our world today provides a haven for competing opinions on morality where every man’s view is as valid as the next, unless of course one is a Christian. The voice of Christ that guides all men in the ways of objective truth has been muted thanks to the generations of churchmen of all faiths, especially the modernist popes since 1962, who

have shown a lack of courage. No wonder those of opposing views have been able to run roughshod over any and all who merely wish to live their lives as Jesus asked them to. Where are these voices now? It’s time they speak up. To be true to God and oneself, one can’t live their life separating Church from state. Before the modernists infiltrated the Catholic Church in 1962, good popes had the courage to speak on this as did Pope Pius XI taught, “When once men recognize, both in private and in public life, that Christ is King, society will at last receive the great blessings of ‘real liberty,’ well-ordered discipline, peace and harmony.” Encyclical, Quas Primas. To sum up, ironically I offer Martin Luther King Jr.’s words on ‘discrimination.’ King: “You express a great deal of anxiety over our willingness to break laws. This is certainly a legitimate concern. Since we so diligently urge people to obey the Supreme Court’s decision of 1954 outlawing segregation in the public schools, it is rather strange and paradoxical to find us consciously breaking laws. One may well ask ‘How can you advocate breaking some laws and obeying others?’ The answer is found in the fact See LETTERS, page 5

Mass extinction Letters: Carriers aid in success shows Mother DInIng Nature’s ferocity From page 4

As any child can tell you, the Mesozoic Era ends with the extinction of the dinosaurs. Most geologists think the cause of that extinction was the impact of an enormous meteorite that hit the Yucatan Peninsula in Mexico. As the theory goes, the impact was so large it led to global changes in the composition of the atmosphere. Smoke and E. Kirsten Peterssow dust raised by the collision Rock Doc blocked the sun’s light for a time, making temperatures drop and plants die off. Many species of both plants and animals didn’t live through the crisis, as parts of the food web simply fell apart. The extinction that carried off the dinosaurs is one of five mass extinctions in the geologic record during the last three eras of geologic time – the time marked by animals of sharply increasing complexity first in the seas and then on land. Because the dinosaurs are famous the world around, the extinction that killed them is often discussed in public circles. But the causes of the other four mass extinctions are just as interesting to scientists. Recently new evidence has been brought to light about the mass extinction that occurred during, rather than at the end, of the Mesozoic Era. The time in question stands at the boundary between the Triassic Period and the Jurassic Period (think of the movie Jurassic Park if you want a little help with these names). The extinction at issue saw the end of three quarters of the species then living in the seas and on land. The massive die off helped clear the ground for the dominance of the dinosaurs for more than 100 million years. In the early Mesozoic what is now North America was united with Europe as part of a supercontinent called Pangaea. Pangaea broke up into separate continents as geologic time unfolded. Volcanic rocks of the same type and age are found along the East Coast and in Morocco, areas that were next to each other in the Triassic. The rocks resulted from a giant rift in the crust of the Earth, one that ultimately grew to become the Atlantic Ocean. The more we learn about major extinctions, the more respect we must have for the ferocity of Mother Nature. Let’s hope we don’t live long enough to see her bare her volcanic claws once more. Dr. E. Kirsten Peters was trained as a geologist at Princeton and Harvard. This column is a service of the College of Agricultural, Human and Natural Resource Sciences at Washington State University.

that there are two types of laws: there are just and there are unjust laws. I would agree with Saint Augustine that ‘An unjust law is no law at all.’ A just law is a manmade code that squares with the moral law or the law of God. An unjust law is a code that is out of harmony with the moral law. To put it in the terms of Saint Thomas Aquinas, an unjust law is a human law that is not rooted in eternal and natural law.” Sadly, many do not acknowledge the existence of an absolute moral authority and this is why we cannot have a coherent moral conversation on this. The bottom line: By all means we must love our enemies, but let’s not forget that loving as Jesus loved also includes wielding the sword of truth, proclaiming the Gospel with firmness, and condemning error, even when doing so is unpopular and may even invite death itself.

I feel we have some of the best carriers in the Northwest. I came to this position four months ago not knowing much about the circulation world. My own resume consisted of years as a Navy journalist and a number of years working in civilian security management. To top that off, I had only been living on the island for six months. So, I had a lot to learn about the process of delivering our product. What made it less stressful was the abilities of the carriers that were here. Of course, I had to hire some new carriers for certain routes and we had to make significant changes to other routes. But for the most part, the carriers have stuck it out and persevered. In fact, most of the time the carriers (or I) get any feedback from the public is when their papers are not delivered. That is why I wanted to talk about some of the fine carriers we have here on the island. There is Will on the south side. He delivers to over 700 homes a night, taking him almost eight hours at a time and hardly ever a complaint. There is James and Ashlee, who drive from their home in Oak Harbor, to deliver to residents in Langley. There is Elaine, a carrier who services part of Coupeville and Greenbank. She just came aboard two months ago, but on her own initiative restructured her route and saved this company hundreds of dollars.

couldn’t be improved by a pole in the hand. When the Pickle Meadows Marine Base closed for a few years, Dale transitioned to the U.S. Forest Service, first in Carson City, then Arcadia, California and later Stockton, California, but weekends usually found them fishing when they could. Dale retired from the Forest Service in 1977 and they returned full time to their beloved valley in the mountains. There they enjoyed friends, community, church, gardening, and fishing when they got the urge. Virginia passed away in 1993, and Dale expanded his involvement in the community, with work at the Senior Center and helping seniors in their inevitable struggles with government bureaucracies. Dale had long known another Walker resident and neighbor, Florence “Flo” Anderson. Flo had lost her first husband, Charlie, in 1981. They found much in common, and their love blossomed. The minister , Tom, who married them in 1997 had a humorous story about trying to counsel them about marriage when they were both old enough to be his own parents. Flo and Dale continued their involvement in and support to the Antelope Valley Community, the church and their friends. Flo passed from this earth in 2005. Dale continued his participation with the Senior Center and church until 2011, when he moved to Coupeville, Washington to live with his son and daughter-in-law. There Dale found new friends and support in the Coupeville United Methodist Church and the Senior Center. Dale will be remembered for his simple but deep faith, his care for others, his love to ‘spin a yarn’, and the wonderful Dad he was to many. Dale is survived by his Son and Daughter-in -Law, Ed and Linda Abbott, of Coupeville, Washington, Step-Son Bruce Anderson of Nampa, Idaho, Step-Daughter Judi Roznos of Irvine, California, StepDaughter Linda Hansen of Medford, Oregon, two Grandchildren, Robert and Janis Abbott, one Greatgrandchild, Cameron Abbott, and the many whose lives he touched.

An annual event showcasing the businesses operating on Whidbey Island is changing its name and expanding its focus. The Biz Expo, which takes place in the fall and organized by the Island County Economic Development Council, will now be known as the “Explore Whidbey: Business and Home Show.” Sami Postma, executive assistant at the Island County Economic Development Council, said the name change is necessary because of a perception in the community that the former Biz Expo was a business-to-business event even though the public was invited to the event. She said organizers want to expand the event to include nonprofit and community groups. The 2013 incarnation of the event will feature a large demonstration area for the participating nonprofits an businesses to utilize. The Explore Whidbey: Business and Home Show has gone through several name changes over the years. The two-day event was known at the Uniquely Whidbey Biz Expo eventually became the Biz Expo before organizers changed the name this year.

The goal of the expo always remained the same. It provided a venue for Whidbey Island residents to discover all of the businesses and services that are available close to home. It also provides vendors with a chance to connect with potential customers they normally wouldn’t outside the event, Postma said. Last year around 60 businesses participated in the event that took place at Oak Harbor High School. The expo for years had been one of the featured events in Coupeville during the fall and took place in the Coupeville Middle and High School gymnasium. Postma said that changed last year when it moved to Oak Harbor High School. She cited several reasons for the move. The Oak Harbor area offers a larger population and it provided a better connection with the transient Navy population. Oak Harbor High School offers more room for growth and easier access off island. The Explore Whidbey: Business and Home Show takes place Oct. 5 and 6 at Oak Harbor High School located at 1 Wildcat Way. For more information about the show and to reserve a booth, contact the Island County Economic Development Council at 360-6786889.

WGH honors staff during National Nurses Week National Nurses Week is celebrated annually from May 6 through May 12, the birthday of Florence Nightingale, the founder of modern nursing. This year’s theme is Delivering Quality and Innovation in Patient Care. There are 200 nurses, certified nursing assistants, emergency department technicians and Health Unit Coordinators at Whidbey General. Motivated by the mission “To heal our community,

one patient and one family at a time,” Whidbey General Hospital nurses are committed to technically excellent care that respects your individual needs and preferences, said Trish Rose, hospital spokeswoman. Whidbey Island Public Hospital District salutes this team, which cares for patients in the hospital, community clinics, physician practices and private homes around the island, she said. Nurses from Whidbey

General participate in many events to promote health and raise awareness such as the Red Dress Ball, March for Babies and Relay for Life. These events provide funds for those in need and educate community members about important health issues. WGH nurses are committed not only to healing injuries and illness, but also to promoting health through lectures and community support groups, Rose said.

Dale Abbott, resident of Coupeville, departed this life for the next on April 23, 2013, having just celebrated his ninety-sixth birthday the day before. Dale was a sure example of the great American melting pot -- his Father, Bernard, was a descendant of Puritan pilgrims who migrated to the Massachusetts Bay Colony in 1637, and his Mother, Esther, was the daughter of Swedish émigrés who settled in Kansas in the 1870’s. Dale was born on the old Abbott homestead near Bigelow, Kansas in 1917. Two years later his father, a cattle rancher and farmer, and mother, a school ‘marm’, moved to good farmland near Dwight, Kansas, where Dale and his sister Maxine grew up. Life’s events unfolded early for Dale. He started school at four, mostly because his mom was the school teacher in the one room school, and there was no such thing as ‘child care’, so his starting school was the solution. Growing up on the ranch and farm brought an early acquaintance with hard work and responsibility. Dale would get up with his father around five-thirty each morning, and while his father cleaned the stables and harnessed the horses, Dale would hand milk four or five cows, then they would feed the chickens together. After breakfast it was off to school, or off to work in the fields, or the myriad of things that always had to be done on a ranch and farm. His parents taught him faith in God, to be straight and true, to care for your neighbors, endure hardships and to enjoy life as it comes. If Dale had one true hero, it was his Dad -- his early desire was to be a cowboy like his Dad, able to wear those boots and that hat. As he grew, his love and respect for his Dad grew also, and he learned that quiet manner of always finding a way to help. It must have worked, for in

later years Dale became that caring “Dad” to many. He also always thought of himself as a cowboy at heart, proud of buckles won for calf roping at the local rodeo. In the late twenties, Dale was well on his way to become a rancher/farmer, just like his Dad, but such was not to be. As he graduated from high school, he was starting a small farm of his own and helping his parents on theirs, but the Depression, the Dust Bowl years, and finally the grasshoppers drove him onward. By the midthirties Dale had worked at several jobs, including a hay ranch high in the Colorado Rockies, and then moved on to Grand View, Idaho. There he worked as an automobile and tractor mechanic, a skill picked up as framing gradually transitioned from horses to tractors. World War II found Dale building B-24 ‘Liberators’ in San Diego, California, where he met, fell in love with and married his own “Rosie the Riveter”, Virginia. After the War, Dale returned to the mechanic trade, while the family grew by the addition of a son, Ed. During the Korean War Dale went to work for the U. S. Marine Corps at Camp Pendleton, California. In 1963 he was offered the opportunity to transfer to the Marine Mountain Warfare Training Center at Pickle Meadows, and jumped at the chance. Dale, Virginia and Ed moved to Walker, Antelope Valley, California, where Dale and Virginia commenced to build their own home, brick by brick and board by board. They had always loved the mountains, and Antelope Valley became the home they had always been seeking. Antelope Valley was also a home in other ways, it was the kind of hard-working, honest, and caring community they had grown up in and respected, and when Dale later moved to Coupeville, he found it to be the same. Dale had always been close to God, his Christian faith, and his church -- he still carried the bible presented to him in 1921 when he was baptized, and he remembered evening readings from the Bible by his mother around the stove in the parlor as he grew up. Dale and Virginia became leaders in the Antelope Valley Community Methodist Church, and later Dale went on to become a Methodist Lay Leader. Dale and Virginia’s other love was fishing -- they never met a moment that

Kiosk gets new look By Nathan Whalen Staff Reporter

One of the kiosks bookending the entrance to the Coupeville Wharf received a much-needed upgrade thanks to the efforts of staff at Ebey’s Landing National Historical Reserve. The kiosk, which is located at the corner of Front Street and Alexander Street in Coupeville’s historic downtown, received three new panels that highlight various aspects of the reserve. In recent years, the old panels on the long-standing structure have become a bit weathered. “We’re kind of revamping our education and outreach to be a little more interesting,” said Lynn Hyde, education and outreach coordinator for Ebey’s Landing National Historical Reserve, Monday. Reserve staff marked the

completion of the new kiosk panels May 3 with a ribbon cutting where County Commissioner Helen Price Johnson, Coupeville Mayor Nancy Conard, along with staff from the reserve and the Port of Coupeville, attended. “We’re using the kiosk as a way of exploring the deeper and wider history of Whidbey Island,” Hyde said. The kiosk, which is located next to shrubs near the pier entrance, has three panels. One highlights the origins of the reserve that includes a blending of two photos of

Front Street — one snapped in 1895 and the other taken in 2012. Another panel features ariel photos of the reserve along with a photo of Skagit Indians gambling. Allegedly the site where the kiosk stands used to be a gambling spot for Indians living on Whidbey Island during the 19th century. The third panel features an enhanced map that highlight sites in the reserve people may want to explore. She said she didn’t have a dollar amount yet on the cost of the new kiosk panels.

VOLUNTEERS: Lending a helping hand From page 1 the home of Cathie Estes, who lives off Hastie Lake Road. Estes, who moves with the aid of a wheelchair, has the distinction of living in the first Habitat for Humanity home constructed on Whidbey Island. The kind-hearted group of handymen spent the day completing a large “honey-do” list Estes had. They pulled weeds, installed a kitty ledge, worked on the plumbing, fixed the lazy susan and oiled her dresser

drawers, which the 68-year-old said she needed to make them easier to open. Another helper was busy connecting a garden hose to a faucet he installed on the deck. With the easier access to water, Estes will be able to grow plants on her deck. “They are the biggest blessing in my life,” Estes said. “It fills my heart with gratitude.” She added that she doesn’t think she could have stayed in her house over the past several years without the help of Central Whidbey Hearts and Ham-

mers. Central Whidbey Hearts and Hammers normally holds its work day the first Saturday in May. Work parties are comprised of building professionals along with anyone willing to lend a hand.

Purdue continues tradition of creating festival images

Nathan Whelan photo

Coupeville artist Roger Purdue was recognized in February for his efforts designing logos for the Penn Cove Water Festivals with a celebration in his honor.

Coupeville artist Roger Purdue is somewhat of an institution at the Penn Cove Water Festival. The woodworker has for decades designed the logo of the annual festival that celebrates Whidbey Island’s Native American heritage. He was recognized earlier in the year for his efforts to promote and support the annual Maytime festival. Surrounded by family and friends at the Coupeville Recreation Hall, he received several gifts from representatives of the Samish Indian Nation, which is based in Anacortes. He received a cedar hat decorated with an eagle feather along with a button hat, both of which were made by members of the indian nation. Purdue has designed a different logo for more than 20 years. Festival organizers used the on posters and T-shirts that were used to promote the festival. Each logo maintained the Native American tradition that the festival highlights every year. This year’s logo is an image of a man and woman kayaking that Purdue had made for a 50th wedding anniversary. It looks like Purdue’s influence will be part of the Penn Cove Water Festival for years to come. He donated enough images to provide the water festival with a logo for each year for the next 15 years. The festival takes place in mid-May. The highlight of the event is the canoe races that are organized in Captain Coupe Park and take place throughout Penn Cove. Native American and First Nation tribes from the Puget Sound region and British Columbia send canoe teams to Coupeville to see who can paddle their way to victory.

Festival honors tribe history The Penn Cove Water Festival welcomes Native American canoe clubs to race on Saturday, May 18, for the 22nd annual celebration at the Coupeville Wharf. Held in downtown Coupeville, the festival allows guests to relive history while honoring ancestors and those who first hosted the festival in the 1930s. The event was an annual affair until it was cancelled during World War II and then resumed 21 years ago. “The festival celebrates Native American canoe races and is a Whidbey legacy,” said operations manager Teresa Ellis. The races are reminiscent of native competitions of the past, fostering a spirit of neighborliness throughout history. Tribal people living on Whidbey Island enjoyed the camaraderie of racing against neighboring tribes. The Water Festival promotes the continuation of this tradition.

Breaking bread a sign of welcoming visitors By Millie Fonda

Throughout the festival there are presentations including Native American dancing. Tribal representation will come in the form of presentations of oral history by Elder Rosie James, Samish nation cultural development coordinator, and storytelling by Lou LaBombard, professor of anthropology and Native American history at Skagit Valley College on

Whidbey Island. There will also be traditional native music played on the violin by Swil Kanim and flute by Peter Ali, music by JP Falcon and performances by the Tshimshain Haayuuk Dancers. New additions to this year’s Penn Cove Water Fes-

tival will be storytelling at the Coupeville Library and expanded children’s activities, including youth activities for adolescents. Youth activities will now be held at the park on Cook’s Corner and will include Native American craft demonstrations.

of indigenous people of the Pacific Northwest coast of the United States and Canada for centuries. Potlatch means a “gift” or to “give away.” At potlach gatherings, a family or hereditary leader hosts guests and provides a feast, the purpose being the redistribution and reciprocity of wealth. These gatherings also provided families an opportunity to celebrate special occasions, such as births, death, adoptions and weddings. The Water Festival is hosted by the people of Whidbey Island to promote the history and friendship that has existed between the Native Americans and the people who have immigrated to this beautiful island.  

Since the 1930s when Pacific Northwest tribes began racing on Penn Cove in canoes, the tradition of baking bread by the people of Coupeville has been a gift of welcome to them. Whidbey Island is the kind of place that welcomes new neighbors with a gift of food. In my research I have not been able to uncover how the baking of bread for the Water Festival began. I did discover that in the early years, Wylie Hesselgrave gave groceries and a tankful of gas to participants in appreciation of their coming to race their canoes on Penn Cove. Also the giving of bread and salt is an old European custom. In northern Germany, bread and salt are traditionally put into a newborn’s diaper to symbolize bread for health and salt for long life. The potlatch tradition has been part of the lives

Those who would like to become a part of the baking of bread tradition next year please call Millie Fonda at 360-929-4937 or Ramona Laster at 360-678-7111.

Coupeville baseball team eliminated at district The Coupeville High School baseball team’s season came to a screeching halt when the Wolves lost 5-2 to Nooksack Valley in a losersout district game at Blaine May 2. The loss came on the heels of a 2-1 loss at home to Lynden Christian in the opening round Wednesday, May 1. The Wolves finished the regular season in a flourish but couldn’t sustain the momentum in the playoffs. Coach Willie Smith said his club “worked so hard” to get the top 1A seed out of the Cascade Conference and then didn’t take advantage of the opportunity with two straight losses at district. “A rather sudden and unexpected ending to an otherwise strong season,” Smith said. In the loss to Lynden Christian, the Wolves wasted a strong outing by pitcher Ben Etzell. The junior righthander struck out 11 and walked one in a completegame five-hitter.

All of the game’s scoring came in the second inning. With one out in the top half, Etzell yielded his lone walk. After a strikeout, the Lyncs dinked a single in front of center fielder Wade Schaef, then Jamie Heystek doubled in both runs. Etzell went on to face the minimum number of hitters over the final five innings, picking off the one batter who had a hit after the second. In the bottom of the second, Jake Tumblin doubled and scored on Kyle Bodamer’s base hit. While Etzell was mowing down the Lyncs, the Wolves couldn’t take advantage of their scoring opportunities. Coupeville got its leadoff man aboard in both the sixth and seventh. In the sixth, Drew Chan led with a single and Etzell bunted him to second. Morgan Payne followed with a line shot off the pitcher that resulted in a ground out. Had the ball gone through, pinch

runner Korbin Korzan most likely would have scored. In the seventh, Bodamer led with a walk and was bunted up by Aaron Trumbull. Lynden Christian then committed the game’s only two errors sandwiched around a pop out, putting runners at second and third, but a strikeout ended the threat. Lynden Christian (9-11) pitcher Truman Van Dalen, whose breaking ball frustrated Coupeville hitters throughout the game, finished with five strikeouts and a five hitter. In regard to the Nooksack Valley loss, Smith said, “Not really sure what to say except we did not come out very excited or focused and played fairly flat all game. Defensively we were pretty solid but, once again, could not get anything going offensively. When we did get runners on, we didn’t execute well or run the bases well.” The Pioneers scored two runs off starter Aaron Curtin in the second inning and

Wolves stop Lakewood in tennis, start district tournament today After a close encounter with Lakewood in a previous meeting, Coupeville High School tennis coach Ken Stange changed his lineup for the season finale and rematch with the Cougars. The new setup rolled to a 5-0 win over visiting Lakewood Tuesday, April 30. Stange said, “I shifted the lineup a bit. The goal was to optimize our win potential. Iris (Ryckaert) and Emily (Gallahar) took care of business at singles. That allowed me to put Amanda and Allie (d’Almeida and Hanigan, the normal top two singles players) on separate doubles teams. It couldn’t have worked

out better.” He added, “The kids delivered impressive wins in all five matches. On top of that, every player was all smiles walking off the court — a fine way to end the regular season.” The Wolves finished the dual season with a 9-4 mark; the JV team went 3-0. Singles: 1, Ryckaert won 6-2, 6-2; 2, Gallahar won 6-4, 6-3. Doubles: 1, d’Almeida/Holly Craggs won 6-3, 6-2; 2, Hanigan/Julia Myers won 6-2, 6-0; 3, Jacki Ginnings/Micky LeVine won 6-0, 6-1. Next up is the district tournament today at South Whidbey.

never trailed. Nooksack Valley (7-14) added two runs in the fifth and one in the sixth and Coupeville could counter with only a single run in the sixth. Kurtis Smith, Etzell and Payne collected six of the

Wolves’ eight hits by rapping two each. Smith slashed a run-scoring triple and Etzell added a double. Tumblin picked up the second RBI. The Wolves beat Nooksack Valley 9-8, coming from five runs down, in a

nonleague game early in the season. Coupeville finished the season with 10 wins in 22 games after winning only five in the previous two seasons. The Wolves lose only one senior to graduation, starting second baseman Chan.

Wolves beat Murphy, begin softball district Friday After dropping the first game of the double header 11-2, the Coupeville softball team got everyone involved in a 17-8 win in the second game against Archbishop Murphy in Everett Friday. Before Friday’s split, the Wolves lost 7-3 at home to first-place Cedarcrest Wednesday, May 1. Coupeville (5-12, 6-12) wraps up the regular season at 4 p.m. today at Sultan (7-9, 8-10) and then opens district play with two games beginning at 4 p.m. tomorrow at Sedro-Woolley’s Janiki Fields. The tournament continues Saturday at noon. In game two at Archbishop Murphy, the Wolves pounded out 20 hits; every starter had at least one and six players finished with two or more. The win also snapped an eightgame losing streak. The second-game assault began in the first inning as Coupeville scored five runs on only two hits. Four walks, an error and singles by Hailey Hammer and McKayla Bailey produced the runs. The Wolves picked up a run in the third on singles by Bessie Walstad and Bailey followed by an error. Archbishop Murphy came back to take a 7-6 lead with a single run in the second, two in the third and four in the fourth. Two 2-run home runs by Gemma Miller and a solo shot by Anna Whitehouse led the comeback. Coupeville responded by scoring

Reyes and Roberts hit consecutive singles. With two outs, Rockwell doubled and Hammer singled. Coupeville netted two more runs in the seventh. Bailey walked followed by singles by Sherman, Reyes and Strasburg. Rockwell finished with three hits, a double, three RBI and the pitching win. Roberts added three hits and two RBI, and Strasburg and Sherman had three hits and an RBI each. Reyes and Hammer had two hits; Reyes also had four RBI and Hammer one. Co-coach David King said the game was sprinkled with “weird plays” and “outstanding plays.” King was pleased with his team’s two-strike approach, something the Wolves have emphasized in practice. The big win wasn’t all offense. Coupeville had zero errors and King noted two outstanding plays: Roberts’ perfect throw to the plate to cut down a run and Bailey’s extra-base-hit robbing catch in the outfield. The offensive explosion came after the Wolves had only two runs and six hits in game one. One run came in the fourth when Bailey doubled and Walstad singled her home. In the seventh, Sherman and Julia Felici reached on errors and Sherman scored on Monica Vidoni’s ground out. Rockwell had two hits and Rob-

erts, Aparicio, Hammer and Walstad one each. It was a 2-1 game until the Wildcats (7-8, 7-10) scored four runs in the fifth. Cedarcrest scored all seven of its runs in the first four innings to lead 7-0. Bailey relieved Rockwell in the fourth and blanked Cedarcrest over the final three innings on three hits, but Coupeville couldn’t overcome the deficit. Cedarcrest (13-4, 14-4) scored an unearned run in the first and two in the second, all with two outs. Two singles, a double and a triple helped the Red Wolves plate four runs in the fourth. Coupeville finally scored in the sixth. Roberts doubled over the center fielder’s head and Strasburg singled to put two on. Hammer’s double scored Roberts. In the seventh, Bailey led with a double. Aparicio followed with a run-scoring single. After two outs, Roberts and Strasburg singled to score the final run. A diving catch by Cedarcrest’s Taylor Turner ended the rally. King said, “We played well overall. Early on we didn’t hit well, but at the end we really picked it up offensively. We need to take the last two innings and build on that.” Roberts went 3-for-4 and Strasburg added two singles to lead the Coupeville offense.

The season ended the way it started for the Coupeville High School soccer team, with a 1-0 loss. The Wolves, the eighth seed, dropped the loser-out match at top-seeded Lynden Christian (9-5-3) in the opening round of the district tournament Wednesday, May 1. It was a year of near misses for Coupeville (3-14). Half of the team’s losses came by

one goal; two of those came in shootouts and another in overtime. The frustration of another close loss was magnified when Lynden Christian’s lone goal came on a defection off a Coupeville player from a corner kick in the 20th minute. Coupeville keeper Kole Kellison collected 11 saves in the defensive battle. Coach Paul Mendes
