The Village Doctor: Better health prescribed for South Whidbey By MICHAELA MARX WHEATLEY Staff reporter


fter months of construction, Dr. Annastasia Kovscek will trade in paint brushes and tools for her stethoscope and will begin seeing patients Wednesday, May 22. It’s been almost three years since Langley Clinic closed its doors, but the days of having no medical care in Langley are over. Kovscek and nurse practitioner Mary Bolles will open Water’s Edge health and wellness practice in Langley Village on Second Street. The new medical team will see patients from infants to seniors. They have a background in pediatrics and women’s health, but have also worked in many other medical settings including urgent care. The Pennsylvania-born, 37-yearold Kovscek moved with her husband, Joseph Sendek, to their Third Street home in April 2011. “The truth is we moved to the

The clinic is located in Langley Village, off Second Street.

I was here for two weeks and didn’t want to leave,” she recalled. As she met her new neighbors and other Langley residents, a theme emerged in conversations. “They would say ‘Do you know, we really need a doctor here,’” Kovscek said.

Dr. Annastasia Kovscek will start seeing patients in her new Langley clinic on May 22. An open house next weekend will introduce islanders to the clinic. It got her thinking and Kovscek did the research. “Just looking at the basic numbers — patient to doctors — on South

Whidbey, we’re underserved,” she said. “We’re really serving a need in the community.” However, Water’s Edge will face

the same challenges many small health care providers encounter. SEE DOCTOR, A6

‘Old school’ journalism lives on at old school Newspaper class builds writing skills at Langley Middle School By BEN WATANABE Staff reporter

Ben Watanabe / The Record

Megan Miller, 12, transcribes her hand-written notes onto a school computer during her journalism class. The seventh grader at Langley Middle School is part of the newspaper staff under teacher Mary Bakeman, which is offered as an enrichment period to boost reading and writing traits.

Getting advice on homework, parents and dating in middle school is so much easier these days. The journalism students at Langley Middle School are busy rotating as the anonymous voice of “Coco Chanel,” the advice columnist for the school’s newspaper. “It’s another way for kids to practice writing,” said Mary Bakeman, the teacher in charge of the journalism class. She is also the newspaper’s publisher and editor. Rotating students as Coco was Bakeman’s idea to keep Coco’s identity a secret that stays inside the walls of her classroom. But it was eighth grader Lola Forde’s idea to even have an advice column in the style of “Dear Abby.” “You can have someone else’s per-

spective other than your mom’s or your friends’,” Lola said. “You don’t need to answer about how a friend stole your pencil.” “Then again, we don’t give serious answers.” Middle school students submit letters to Coco. Those letters are about middle school issues: “Dear Coco, I like this guy, but I’m not allowed to date. From, Not allowed.” “My girlfriend doesn’t show me that she cares about me. I don’t even know if she likes me anymore. She’s even told me she likes this other guy. My best friend in fact. I’m not sure what to do anymore … I like and care about her a lot! I just wish she could realize that soon. Please help, PB&J.” As Coco’s creator, Lola described the pseudo-therapist as “refined and uses proper English and is usually intellectual.” The quarterly paper has student, faculty, staff and school news. Two dozen sixth, seventh and eighth-grade students walk around with their press passes and iPads, in some instances replaced by an actual notepad and pencil, and sniff out

the school scoop. Students even broke the news that longtime physical education teacher and student fitness herald Rocco Gianni will retire at the end of this school year in June. Students Mackenzee Collins and Fiona Roberts, both seventh graders, co-authored that story. Mackenzee, 13, enjoys news writing because of the interpersonal connection (she gets to talk to people). In the course of her interview with Gianni, she learned a few things about her teacher. “I liked interviewing Mr. Gianni. He’s really sad to leave LMS. He actually started crying,” Mackenzee said. Journalism is an enrichment period at Langley Middle School. While some enrichment periods are designed to help students who struggle in certain areas of the state standardized testing subjects of writing, reading and math, journalism is a bonus for students who tested well in reading and writing. Each day the class convenes for 30 minutes to work on their stories, SEE JOURNALISM, A6

PTSA awards Golden Acorns

Whidbey Island Bank supports Good Cheer’s fresh food

A handful of folks around South Whidbey carried some hardware home from the Golden Acorn and Outstanding Educator awards last month. The Parent Teacher Student Associations at South Whidbey Elementary School, Langley Middle School and South Whidbey High School honored one volunteer and one educator at the ceremony in April. From the elementary school, Missy Ziss won the Golden Acorn and Susan Ritzner won Outstanding Educator. From the middle school, Katrina Leski won the Golden Acorn and Gerry Barrat was the Outstanding Educator. From the high school: Lori Cavender received the Golden Acorn and Principal John Patton was named Outstanding Educator.

Whidbey Island Bank donated $2,500 to Good Cheer’s “Fresh Food on the Table” program. The support qualified Whidbey Island Bank as one of Good Cheer’s Honey Bee supporters. “It takes the pollinators, the diggers, the fertilizing red wrigglers and the seeds to grow our gardens, and provide fresh, local food to Good Cheer,” said food bank officials in a release. Donations up to $249 qualifies the giver as a Seedling. Donations between $250 and $999 are a Red Wriggler. Gifts from $1,000 to $2,499 and make the donor a Hori Hori. Big money donations of $2,500 and higher are the domain of the Honey Bee. “Thank You Pam Bickel and Whidbey Island Bank for being our first Honey Bee supporter, helping us to provide fresh local produce as a choice in our food bank,” said Kathy McLaughlin-McCabe, Good Cheer executive director, in the release. The program is designed to provide fresh food to families in need on Whidbey Island and educate Whidbey’s young people about gardening and farming.

Noble creek purchase by Langley hits a county wall By JUSTIN BURNETT Staff reporter Island County put the brakes on a plan to help Langley pay for an eight-acre conservation easement this week. The Board of Commissioners was scheduled Monday to vote on a contract that would have provided the city with $175,000 in Conservation Futures funding for the Noble Creek project. It was the last step in the funding process as the Conservation Futures allocations were approved last year. But instead of approving the contract, the board tabled the issue until June. District 1 Commissioner Helen Price Johnson said details had changed from the original funding proposal and expressed concern about the property’s value. To be safe, she asked to hold off making a decision until those questions could be answered. “I would feel more confident if we had an appraisal review,” Price Johnson said. “I just want to double check.” Board Chairwoman Kelly Emerson was out of state and Commissioner Jill Johnson voiced no objection to postponing the decision until more information is learned. “I think it would best … so everyone is confident when we make the decision,” Johnson said. Last year, city officials sought $600,000 in Conservation Futures funding to purchase 11.4 acres of undeveloped prop-

erty along Noble Creek, east of Camano Avenue. The idea was to preserve the area as open space, create trail connectivity and provide public access to the waterfront. Program funding requests are reviewed by two advisory groups before being forwarded to the commissioners for final approval. One of the committees, the technical advisory group, recommended Langley instead pursue a $175,000 conservation easement on eight of the 11 acres. The remaining property would remain open for development, allowing up to 20 new homes, according to Langley officials. The board did discuss holding the contract until Langley has the property appraised but, in the end, the decision was only to discuss the issue again at a future weekly work session. Jeff Arango, planning director for Langley, said the delay is somewhat frustrating as conditions for an appraisal were ham-

mered out last year during the funding review process. An appraisal would be done but after the contract was signed. Half of the $7,000 price tag would be paid for by the county and the other half by the property owner. The project is on a shoestring budget and the city had not planned to cover the cost out of pocket, he said. “If they are telling us we have to have that done before they approve the contract, we’ll have to rethink that,” Arango said. He doubted, however, that the issue would be much of an obstacle and is hopeful the confusion can be worked out by the time the board hears the issue again. “I’m pretty confident we’ll get it worked out one way or another,” Arango said. Once the issue is hammered out and the contract approved, the city is expected to move quickly to purchase the easement, he said.

First-time boatyard gets $140K contract North Cross Aluminum just landed the big one. South Whidbey Fire/EMS commissioners formally approved a contract and payment to the Freeland company to build its fire boat for $143,668.16. North Cross, owned by Tim Leonard, was the only company to submit a bid for the high-tech fire suppression and marine response catamaran. It is expected to be completed within six months. Leonard pitched his business to the commissioners on its basis of being a local business with experienced boat-building employees.

It’s too soon to tell how that bill will fare, Bailey said. “We’ll just have to see how the negotiations go forward.” While known for her reluctance to support new taxes, Bailey didn’t rule it out for the right transportation package. She pointed out she voted for a five cent gas tax increase during here first term as a member of the House 10 years ago. “That was for three, 144 car ferries,” she said. “They never materialized, that money was spent on other things. But that’s history, that’s water under the bridge.” She also voted for several fee increases this year that are part of a basic transportation package. The new 144-car ferry is part of a separate “mega project” proposal to be hashed out during the special session. While she wants the new ferry, it all depends on the total

FERRIES Bailey hopes for third ferry Sen. Barbara Bailey, R-Oak Harbor, will go to work Monday, May 13, on trying to get a third, 144car ferry funded. If successful, Nichols Brothers Boat Builders in Freeland can keep its ferry superstructure production line going, preserving 80 to 100 jobs. A story about the funding outlook appeared in the May 8 Record but Bailey couldn’t be contacted before press time. Later, she called to express her support for the ferry. “It’s just a matter of which way we find the money to do it,” she said. The ferry is included in House Bill 1954 which passed out of the House Transportation Committee in the regular session, but has yet to be dealt with by the full House or Senate. That bill

CLINTON Woman wielding bamboo hits men

LANGLEY Ethics thinkers gather on code

A 21-year-old Clinton woman was arrested for seriously injuring two men by beating them with a bamboo cane last week, according to court documents. Prosecutors charged Stefany J. Cornett in Island County Superior Court May 7 with two counts of assault in the second degree. Judge Alan Hancock set her bail at $10,000 on May 3. Cornett allegedly attacked her two roommates as they walked down the driveway of the Hideaway Lane home, according to the report by Deputy Scott Davis with the Island County Sheriff’s Office. She called one of the men “a backstabber” before attacking. Cornett struck both men numerous times with the 4-foot stick.

Shaping right and wrong in the Village by the Sea is in the hands of nine people, and they want more input in the days to come. Langley’s ethics committee will hold a public meeting at 7 p.m. Tuesday, May 21 at the Langley United Methodist Church for more input. The committee is charged with creating a code of ethics for the city of Langley.

Whidbey Fire/EMS awarded contracts totaling $140,000 at its stations. Commissioners approved a $92,570.93 contract for projects at South Whidbey Fire/EMS’ Bayview station. Gary Guersney Construction will renovate the Bayview station and replace its rain gutter. Bryant Plumbing will work on plumbing at the Bayview station for $9,130.80. Asbestos abatement at the Maxwelton station plus installation of new sheetrock, insulation and a drop ceiling will cost the district $32,979.56. Combined Construction, Inc. received the contract. Fire Chief Rusty Palmer requested the commissioners terminate a janitorial contract with Seattle Maintenance Solutions for failure to meet the scope of work cleaning the stations, which included weekly cleaning of the Freeland station, bi-weekly cleaning at the Langley and Bayview stations and monthly visits to all stations. The $5,695.88 contract was made in January, but stations were not sufficiently cleaned, leading the district to end its agreement with the

Editorial Keep building more ferries Washington State Ferries is one of the drivers of the economy of the Puget Sound region. Imagine what it would be like without them. Anyone driving to Whidbey Island would have to take Deception Pass Bridge; anyone driving to the Olympic Peninsula would have to drive over the Tacoma Narrows bridge. Thanks to the ferries, many thousands of commuters and tourists have a better, faster, and less ecologically damaging way to reach their destination — on a beautiful Washington State Ferry trip. The ferry system has been catching up in its endless battle against obsolescence. When the ancient steel electrics were pulled from service a few years ago, havoc broke loose on the Coupeville to Port Townsend route. But construction of two 64-car ferries now has the route well serviced all year, with one ferry in the winter and two during the busy summer months. The latest construction goal is four, 144car ferries. They’re crucial to modernizing the fleet and crucial to Nichols Brothers Boat Builders in Freeland, which builds the superstructures. One has left Nichols’ yard, another is in the works, and a third is awaiting funding by the Legislature which convenes in special session Monday. Nobody is talking about the fourth right now, but its time will come. It’s refreshing that Whidbey Island’s two delegates to Olympia, Norma Smith, R-Clinton, and Barbara Bailey, R-Oak Harbor, are on board with the idea that the third ferry has to be funded this session. Nichols Brothers and the primary contractor, Vigor Shipyards of Seattle, are both geared up to build the ferries. A third could be started immediately. With all the equipment and workers in place, and the experience gained from building the other two, they can build the third boat at a far lesser cost now than if they have to wait a year or two and start from scratch. As Republicans, Smith and Bailey naturally are concerned about overspending. Smith sees financial streamlining as a necessity for all transportation projects, as does Bailey. But they both see the cost effectiveness of building a third 144-car ferry now. Nobody knows what will come out of the special session, but one thing that has to is another 144-car ferry. We’re trusting our elected representatives can deliver.

Letters In response

School lunches mismanaged To the editor: I’m sorry, but what a crock. Several years ago when the school district awarded the food service contract it was under the illusion that the district would be revenue neutral. The average price of lunch at $6 (The Record, April 27) is over the top and blaming it on labor is shameful. This has to rate as one of the highest cost per meal in the country for school lunches. This is a management issue pure and simple and falls squarely on the contractor, central office administration and board. The contractor is paid a substantial management fee to lose money in our community while their U.K.-based parent company rakes it in to the tune of billions. And guess who foots the bill at the end of the day? Equally absurd is allowing the negative balances to reach their current level and then place the stigma on the student by providing them with an “alternative” lunch. There are many

Keep ferry assembly going To the editor: In the next couple of weeks the Washington State Legislature will decide whether to fund construction of a third 144car ferry. The ferry will replace one of the 60-year-old boats currently in the system. The Island County Economic Development Council asks the community to contact our local legislators and voice their support in building this new ferry. How many of us drive 60-year-old cars? If a car classified as an antique is not reliable enough to get us back and forth to work, how much more important to replace a ferry which might carry over a million vehicles a year? The state can also save money using manufacturing efficiencies. Over a hundred years ago Henry Ford

learned that assembly lines reduce costs. Adding another 144 now will take advantage of the assembly lines established at Nichols Brothers and Vigor to meet the demand of building the two boats currently in construction. Let’s use that to our advantage, build the third boat now and save a bundle. Building the 144 also boosts Island County’s economy. Constructing the 144 superstructures has added 80 to 100 living wage jobs to the county. That equates to over $6 million annually in payroll which leads to a $12 million impact to our local economy and supports 370 other jobs. No other private employer located in the county comes close to the economic impact Nichols Brothers provides. Building another 144 is the right choice. The new ferry will replace an antique boat with a modern, more efficient and less polluting one along with providing vital living wage jobs for Island County and Washington. Let our legislators know you’re onboard building a new ferry. Call the legislative hotline, 1-800-562-6000, and leave a message for Sen. Bailey, Rep. Smith and Rep. Hayes.

“We plan to stay sustainable,” she said. That’s why, she explained, Bolles and she will start out with a team of four to keep overhead cost low. She also said while she accepts all major insurance, as well as Medicare, the office has to find a balance as programs such as Medicare are a strain on small operations. “We accept Medicare, but we can only accept some,” she said. Kovscek takes an integrated, holistic approach to medicine and is likely to recommend a nutritional change or change in routine rather than prescribing a pill. “I see food as medicine. I see supplements as medicine,” she said. That said, if medical intervention is needed, Kovscek does not hesitate. The key to healing, however, is getting to know patients, she said. “Knowing your patients — that’s where healing comes,” Kovscek explained.

Dr. Annastasia Kovscek tours one of her future patient rooms with a still-wrapped medical bench. “It’s about meeting you where you are at. It’s easy to look at people cookie cutter, recipestyle, but each person is different.” She puts great emphasis on wellness and believes healing can happen even if the medical diagnosis appears bleak. “I hold the belief that healing can happen when something is not ‘curable,’” she said. For Langley, the return of a doctor is a great achievement. Water’s Edge is filling a void that has existed since Whidbey General Hospital’s

closure of the Langley Clinic in October 2010. City Councilman Hal Seligson has been an outspoken proponent of bringing a doctor or nurse practitioner back to Langley and fought for keeping the pharmacy in town when Linds moved to Freeland in 2009. “It’s a good sign,” Seligson said. “It’s been a long time in coming. I’m very pleased to welcome Dr. Annastasia Kovscek to her new medical practice in Langley. I wish her great success in living her dream of being the village doctor.” Kovscek has already built a reputation in town. “I’m confident that through her expertise and empathetic view she’ll help sustain Langley as a vital community where we enjoy life and raise healthy families,” he said. Kovscek is following in the footsteps of a group of doctors who encountered a community without a family practice in

the 1970s, and made it work. “The years Doug Allderdice and I spent providing medical care to the people of South Whidbey were some of the most rewarding of my professional career,” said Steve Shapiro, co-founder of the Langley Clinic that served Langley until 2010 in various versions. “In those days there were no cell phones, no paramedics, no 911, no emergency department at the hospital. We dealt with minor injuries at our office in Langley, drove to Coupeville to see more serious emergencies and to visit our patients in the hospital, delivered babies at home, and developed lasting relationships with our patients,” Shapiro said. “Scientific and technological advances and the trend toward sub-specialization have changed much about medical practice; but getting the most from the health care system still rests on the foundation of decisions each individual makes with his or her primary care provider. Likewise, the health of a community is greatly enhanced when health care providers live and work there.” Shapiro said he is delighted to welcome two new primary care practices to South Whidbey — Kovscek in Langley; and Cathy Robinson, PA, and her associates, Dr. Mark Duncan and Dr. Dan Fisher in Freeland. “We hope they all find serving the South Whidbey community as satisfying as we did,” Shapiro said.

interviewing, writing, photographing, brainstorming, editing and revising. “I’m glad our school has it,” said Kaitlin EllerbyMuse, 13, who said she enjoys journalism because of the ease of writing news copy and cramming information into a short story. “We get to work on our writing skills.” There are no titles among the students: no editor, no senior staff reporter, no photography director. Everyone is capable, to varying degrees, of each part of the process. One student rose to the top of the writing ranks, by her peers’ admissions. Eighth grader Riley Yale, 14, pumped out the most stories each issue. Riley wrote about St. Patrick’s Day, a class field trip to a rock climbing gym, the school’s food drive and the geography bee. Her work is mostly on the front end. Riley said she pitches plenty of story ideas and loads the brainstorming process. Some stories were adapted from national news, like one she worked on about Google Glasses. “Usually I try to censor the bad ones out,” Riley said. Not that she has many bad ideas, at least in her teacher’s eyes. “She just has a way with words,” Bakeman said. The paper costs very little. Bakeman prints 200 copies, about enough for

60 percent of the student body, which the journalism students deliver to their classmates during the midday enrichment period. As for layout software, well, Bakeman and her students made do with Google Docs, which worked well enough, but has lots of limits. When writing a story, students must all submit their texts in the same font style and size for a uniform look. Those are then printed and pasted to an 11-by-17 inch sheets, scanned and copied. Langley Middle School’s student chronicles have continued for many decades, though broken from time to time and in different incarnations. Formerly called the Cougar Chronicles, the journalism students chose the new name, News for the Cougs, in September 2012 at the start of the school year. “I have a curriculum from probably the ’60s,” Bakeman said. “It’s old school.” For all of the technological struggles, Bakeman wants to teach journalism again Whynext w a iyear, t to and s aveform on many years to come. n i g h t for a f re e qu o te o “I’d be pleased as punch if it continued,” she said.

Shootout busts boys soccer from playoffs By BEN WATANABE Staff reporter High expectations came crashing down Tuesday night in Shoreline for the South Whidbey boys soccer team. Other than the result of a 2-1 shootout loss to Cascade Christian, it was a moment some of the Falcon seniors had visualized since they were kids. “It’s weird. I’m sad, but at the same time it’s not the worst way to go,” said Falcon senior keeper Andrew Holt. “I’m with all my best friends, kids I’ve grown up with forever. Playing at King’s, Woolsey Stadium, since I was in seventh grade I’ve been playing here. It’s a nostalgic way to end.” There they were, seniors on an experienced, talented soccer squad, playing in the tri-district tournament, a couple of games away from the 1A state tournament. The game was tied through regulation, knotted after one fiveminute bonus period, then a second. Play extended to a shootout, and the first five shots by each squad sail into the net. Then the sweet dream soured on the Falcons’ sixth kick. South Whidbey sophomore Andrew Zisette stepped to the 12-yard marker, took his shot and watched Cougar keeper Tanner Premo dive to his right and stuff the shot. “It’s unfortunate for Andy,” said Falcon senior Sam Turpin. “We pulled him up from junior varsity and he played flawlessly. That was me two years ago. I ended our tournament chances by missing a PK, and I was sixth, the same spot he was.

Falcon sophomore Davin Kesler fights off Cascade Christian junior forward Hunter Austin in the 1A tri-district playoff match Tuesday. Kesler, one of South Whidbey’s main facilitators, took a hard hit in the second half and was kept out of the game. I know where he’s at right now.” “It’s not his fault.” South Whidbey had a chance to extend the shootout with Holt, who saved three penalty kicks in a shootout with Sultan earlier in the season, facing one last shot. But the Cougars sent senior defender Andy LeDarme to the line, who booted his shot by Holt to the right corner of the net, winning the hotly contested match. On the first possession of the match, Cascade Christian freshman mid-

Within the first few minutes, the Falcons kept the ball on the Cougars’ half and wound up with a throw from the sideline. Sophomore defender Oliver Saunsaucie cast it into the box, where Turpin got it and rocketed in the score in the 46th. “I stayed surprisingly quiet for about 10 seconds,

South Whidbey pressed in the first half, including near misses in the fourth and fifth minutes on Darby Hayes’ headers.

Singles tennis is all in the Newman family. Hayley Newman, a senior, beat her sister Carlie, a sophomore, for the 1A District 1 tennis singles title. Carlie may advance as the second seed in the upcoming tri-district tournament May 17-18 at Seattle’s Amy Yee Tennis Center. As for the Falcons’ doubles teams, that remained to be decided. Both of South Whidbey’s doubles teams suffered one loss Thursday on their home courts, and both waited until Saturday to learn their seeding. The district team title also hung in the balance between Blaine and South Whidbey. South Whidbey’s second doubles squad, Hannah Calderwood and Isla Dubendorf, play the finals of the consolation match against Blaine’s Alicia Allison and Shirin Roth-Lerner. If Calderwood and Dubendorf lose, they place fourth, Allison and Roth-Lerner place third and South Whidbey’s top doubles team, Amelia Weeks and Tess Radisch place second. Should Calderwood and Dubendorf win, the two Falcon teams play Monday. Hayley Newman was undefeated in her sets. Carlie only lost to her sister, 6-2, 6-4. She may play in the consolation final Saturday. If Blaine’s Saskia Dolk wins, Carlie automatically claims second place. If Dolk loses to Coupeville’s Amanda d’Almeida, Carlie faces her for the second-place match.

Cascade Conference; 3-15 overall) tied in the sixth with three runs. Falcon senior Alex Kubeska and Mackenzie Hezel both pitched in the game, with Kubeska opening and closing the bout. South Whidbey also lost its final Cascade Conference game of the season, 5-3, to Granite Falls on Thursday. The Falcons took a 2-0 lead in the first inning on a two-run homer by Falcon senior Ellie Greene. Granite Falls jumped ahead in the sixth with three runs.

Streak continues for Whidbey Crabs The Whidbey Crabs picked up their ninth consecutive victory with a 9-8 rally against the North Seattle Rainiers on Wednesday evening. The Rainiers jumped out early with six runs in the first inning. Whidbey chipped away, tying the score at 6-6 all in the fifth. After falling behind in the seventh inning, 8-6, Whidbey scored three runs in the bottom of the seventh inning to get the win. Connor Antich had two hits and three scores, while Austin Sterba added four runs. Will Simms delivered big hits with three RBI with Josiah Seargent adding two RBI. Trent Piehler was roughed up for six runs in the first inning but settled down to shut out the North Seattle team for three more innings before giving way to Lewis Pope for two innings. Antich pitched the final inning and picked up the victory.

Charles Wright bumps baseball in extra innings By BEN WATANABE Staff reporter A seesaw baseball game between South Whidbey and Charles Wright Academy tilted the Tacoma team’s way in an extra-inning affair Tuesday, 8-7. South Whidbey, an underdog in the 1A tri-district tournament, led much of the game. Charles Wright Academy tied the game in the sixth inning at 5-5. In the top of the seventh, South Whidbey had a runner on base and senior Jack Lewis at the plate. Lewis jacked a two-run homer to center field to lift the Falcons, 7-5. “We really thought that was the momentum to put us over the top,” said Falcon head coach Tom Fallon. “We played a really good game … Defensively we didn’t hurt ourselves.” Needing three outs, the Falcons took the field ready for an unlikely victory. This Disney tale didn’t go South Whidbey’s way. The Falcons allowed two runners on base on consecutive “questionable” walks, as Fallon called them. A couple hits later and the game was tied 7-7. A heroic throw from center field by junior Jake Sladky to throw out a runner at the plate forced an extra inning to determine the outcome. South Whidbey pitchers, led by Brent Piehler,

the ball, Lyons lofted it over him and into the goal, but the sideline ref flagged it as an offside penalty, negating the goal. Joy was short lived by South Whidbey. Cascade Christian responded in the 52nd with a goal by Bradner off Anthony Dahlquist’s corner kick. “The back post is the majority of our goals (allowed),” Holt said. “And I’m taking the majority of the blame on that. Once the ball is kicked, we’re like ‘Andy will get it,’ and the back guy gets loose.” An already physical, testy game was exacerbated when Falcon sophomore Davin Kesler collided with Cascade Christian’s Dahlquist as he went for a header. Falcon assistant coach Skip Robbins erupted at the refs, pleading for them to take command of the game and issue a yellow card. Instead, he was awarded the yellow card for comments to the field ref. That seemed to fire up South Whidbey, which got off two decent shots on goal that were both saved in the final 14 minutes. Cascade Christian responded with its own aggression as junior Garodd Stimets charged a through ball in the box, colliding with Holt as he grabbed the ball. Stimets received a yellow card, Holt yelled at him, and when a Cougar fan was heard yelling back, Holt yelled at her, too. Everything was on the line for South Whidbey and Cascade Christian, and emotions ran high. That may have taken its toll late in the game and in the bonus periods, as both teams lacked the energy to chase down long through balls along the sidelines. Missing that zest and zip, the match went to the shootout where Cascade Christian won.

allowed only one other walk the entire game. Charles Wright Academy’s ace pitcher, whom Fallon said has a scholarship offer to play baseball for Wake Forest University, retired the side in the top of the eighth. Then the home team won the game in the eighth, 8-7. “It was a tough one to take,” Fallon said. “But the experience we earned is only going to carry the program forward. No one felt satisfied by not continuing.” South Whidbey finished its season 7-11 in Cascade Conference play and 9-15 overall. Their record put them in fifth place in the league standings just behind Granite Falls, which owned the league tiebreaker. The Falcons lose three seniors from the squad and will return much of its varsity lineup. That portends well for the future of the program, Fallon said, when so many young players have playoff experience and even a dramatic playoff elimination. “They believe they can win now,” Fallon said. “We were in every single game we played in, basically.” “We’ll have more confidence in the young guys next year.” Lewis went 1-for-3 with the two-run homer. Senior catcher Aaron Curfman batted 3-for-4 with four scores and a double. Sladky hit 2-for-4. Piehler was 1-for-3 with a double.

Public defender faces competition By JUSTIN BURNETT Staff reporter Beginning next year, Island County could be served by a new public defender. At a recent Island County commissioners’ weekly session, the board informally agreed to seek proposals from qualified law firms interested in being the county’s primary public defense contractor. The existing agreement is with the Law Offices of Thomas Pacher in Coupeville. The $526,950 contract was first signed in 2006 and currently pays for five attorneys and one investigator. It expires at the end of this year.

“Since its been seven years with the same contract, with one amendment, it’s staff’s recommendation (to seek new proposals),” said Don Mason, public defense administrator with the county’s General Services Administration. Budge Director Elaine Marlow added that while the proposal is for the commissioners to decide, the matter was run past the county’s three judges as a courtesy and none objected. The board was equally supportive. Chair woman Kelly Emerson said long-term contracts can have unexpected consequences. For example, in 2011 the state Supreme


“I think it’s just good practice after a number of years to go out and give other firms a chance to bid, keep folks competitive.” Kelly Emerson Island County commissioner

Court ordered King County to allow long-time public defenders the option of enrolling in the county’s retirement system. That led to a settlement approved by the Metropolitan King County Council earlier this year that made them county employees. Emerson said she wanted to avoid any possibility of that happening here. “I don’t want to end up in that same situation so I want to make sure we’re taking all precautions,” Emerson said.

“I think it’s just good practice after a number of years to go out and give other firms a chance to bid, keep folks competitive,” Commissioner Helen Price Johnson added. Pacher could not be reached for comment but his firm is eligible to submit a new proposal. Under a scheduled timeline, contract proposals would be sought from Aug. 1 to Sept. 3. The board would make its selection in October and the new contract would go into effect, Jan. 1.

Robin Gearhart Burley passed away at Valley General Hospital, in Renton, on Thursday, May 2, 2013, his unforgettable blue eyes twinkling their last. Robin was born in Coupeville, Wash., January 31, 1945. He spent his first eighteen years growing up on the family farm in Maxwelton with his two sisters, Joan and Lynn, and his younger brother, Mark. He graduated from Langley High School in 1963, where he proved that size does not matter, using his mighty 120 lb. frame to intimidate football foes. After high school, life led Robin down many roads; he worked as an Alaska fisherman, served honorably in the army in Vietnam, dabbled in sales and worked as a glazier for Sunset Glass in Bellevue. He loved music and dancing, singing for friends shortly before his death. The accomplishments that brought him the greatest joy were his marriage to Penelope Cowden, his wife who preceded him in death, and the wonderful legacy of his surviving family; daughter Kim, her husband, Chad Smith, son Jeff

ObituarY James Allen Gatto

February 6, 1935 – March 24, 2013 Son, Husband, Father, Friend, Brother, Uncle and Papa Born in Tacoma to Pete and Alice Gatto, Jim was the 2nd of 4 children (Lauretta, John and Frank). Jim was educated in the Highline School District, starting with Sunnydale Elementary. He played football while attending Puget Sound Jr. High and Highline High School. At the age of 19, he married Sharon West, and their daughter Esther was born in November 1955. Jim was drafted into the US Army at the age of 23, serving as a tank mechanic from May 1958 until June 1960. While in the Army, he met and married RuthAnn Kantzer in June of 1959. After his discharge, he returned to his job at Fruehauf Truck and Trailer in Seattle. He was employed as a mechanic, eventually working his way up to foreman. Jim was instrumental in developing the tilt bed trailer. Jim loved the outdoors – fishing, hunting and mountain climbing (all the major peaks in Washington). His proudest climb was to the top of Mt. Rainer, where he sat and drank the last of his dad’s Diego Red homemade wine, and having Jim Whittaker pick out the ice axe he used for the climb. Because of his love of the outdoors, Jim was asked to be scout master for Boy Scout Troop 399, which he did with great enthusiasm for five years. He was a member of the Burien Elks Lodge #2143 for 51 years, during which time he helped install the sign in front of the building on 1st Avenue, where it remains to this day. In 1962, Jim and RuthAnn built a new house together in Burien, where they lived and raised six children. He always had a garden, growing vegetables for the dinner table, and beautiful roses for all to enjoy. Jim retired from Fruehauf in October of 1986 and they moved to Whidbey Island at Greenbank in 1990. Here he became a gentleman farmer raising a crazy

James Allen Gatto menagerie of farm animals and Polled Hereford cattle. Raising the grandchildren and great-grandchildren on “The Farm” was one of his profound joys. Jim and the family spent many happy days at the cabin in the Cascade River Park, where he was known as a champion fisherman. Hunting and hiking in the North Cascades was one of his passions. He also enjoyed spending time at the ocean, digging razor clams, hunting, picking blackberries and mushrooms, and fishing on his daughter’s charter boat “Blue Eyes.” On Sunday, March 24 while at Providence Hospital in Everett where he was being treated for several ailments related to a life of hard work and play, surrounded by his family, Jim moved on to greener pastures. He is survived by his wife, RuthAnn of nearly 54 years, two brothersFrank Gatto and John Gatto, seven children; Maurice Pilgrim, Laura Pilgrim Rust (Randy), Esther Palmer (Dwayne), Paula Pilgrim, Steve Gatto (Debi), Anthony Gatto, Kelly Polus (John), 13 grandchildren, seven great grandchildren, and numerous nieces and nephews. A luncheon reception to Celebrate his Life will be held 1 p.m. Sunday, May 19 at the Burien Elks Lodge #2143, 14006 1st Avenue South, Burien, WA. Arrangements by Burley Funeral Chapel, Oak Harbor.

Navy doubles Poseidon order headed to Whidbey By JUSTIN BURNETT Staff reporter The Navy plans to more than double the number of P-8A Poseidons destined for Whidbey Island Naval Air Station. Instead of the planned 24 planes, the Navy will station 49 of the subhunting jets at the NAS Whidbey, said U.S. Rep. Rick Larsen, a Second District Democrat, last week. “If there was any lingering concern about the future of our naval bases, this news will lay it to rest,” said Larsen. “I have worked for over a decade with local leaders to make the case to the Navy why Northwest Washington is the best place to base these assets.” Larsen was briefed the morning of May 3 on the Navy’s strategic lay down plan for 2013-20, which

outlines the change. Base officials are excited about the prospect. “This is great for the base and the local Whidbey Island community,” said Capt. Christopher Phillips, acting base commander. Base commander Capt. Mike Nortier was in Washington, D.C. The news was not entirely unexpected as the Navy announced in November it was studying three possibilities for increasing the number of Poseidons to be stationed at Whidbey Island. Larsen said that study is not yet complete, but the basic plan is to make the base home to seven squadrons. The additional aircraft will come from a canceled plan to base three fleet squadrons in Hawaii.

Dozens turn out for Day of Prayer By NATHAN WHALEN Staff reporter A group of religious leaders, community leaders and

faithful ventured to the steps of the former Island County courthouse May 2 to pray and give thanks. Approximately 50 people gathered during the tradi-

“The additional basing of P-8As makes Naval Air Station Whidbey Island the preeminent maritime patrol, electronic warfare and surveillance site in the Pacific,” Larsen said. “The additional P-8As will bring hundreds of new military families and will create hundreds of local jobs in the next few years as the base constructs new facilities.” The P-8A Poseidon is based on the Boeing 737-800 airframe and is Navy’s planned replacement for the aged turbo-prop P-3C Orions. Larry Munns, a former base commander and husband of Oak Harbor Councilwoman Beth Munns, said this is indeed big news for the both the base and the community. “It’s tremendous,” he said. The Navy’s placement of so many

tional lunch hour to worship in a National Day of Prayer. The nearly one-hour event included singing, a color guard, blowing of a horn and, of course, plenty a prayer for virtually every aspect of life. “It was a good turnout and a good spirit,” said Rick Karjalainen, pastor at Coupeville Community Bible Church and chaplain for the sheriff’s office and the state patrol. He was one of a number of Whidbey Island religious leaders to offer their prayers during the event. National Day of Prayer was established in 1952 by a joint resolution of Congress. It takes place on the first Thursday in May. The theme for the latest National Day of Prayer was “Pray for America,” and the official scripture is “In His name the nations will put their hope.” (Matthew 12:21), according to the National Day of Prayer website. “This is an event that may make the difference; prayers make the difference,” Karjalainen said at the start of the ceremony.

assets at the base are a clear statement about the strategic value and importance of the base, he said. Also, these are deployable planes, which means they won’t all be on Whidbey at the same time, but the families of the servicemen and women who fly and work on them will be here year round. “It will mean more families and more people,” Larry Munns said. “That’s good news for everybody.” Kathy Reed, executive director of the Oak Harbor Chamber of Commerce, agrees that the additional squadrons and their families will have wide-ranging impacts on both the city and Island County. “It’s going to have an impact on our schools, it’s going to have an impact on our businesses, on employees and employers but it’s a

good impact,” she said. “These are good challenges because it represents growth, at least that’s what I think.” Larsen said the Navy also announced plans to accelerate future basing of destroyers at Naval Station Everett. Three frigates are being retired in the next few years and rescheduling of their replacements means there will be seamless transition. The Navy confirmed it will keep the USS Nimitz homeported at Naval Station Everett through at least 2020. The first two squadrons of P-8As arrive at NAS Whidbey in 2015. Another will follow in 2016, three more in 2017 and the last in 2018.

Carl Smith blows his shofar at the National Day of Prayer event in Coupeville. The shofar is a ram’s horn used in Jewish ceremonies such as Rosh Hashanah. He also showed gratitude for a positive outcome for her granddaughter who was being treated at Children’s Hospital. Various pastors and community leaders from North, Central, and South Whidbey Island prayed for seven areas that has become a tradition of the National Day of Prayer. Those areas are the nation, public officials, mili-

tary, families and schools, churches and pastors, media and businesses. “May your word by cleansing and bring peace to all of our hearts,” JoAnna Weeks said during her prayer for the media. Jeff Humphrey, owner of Whidbey Sign Company, prayed for a blessing of prosperity during his prayer for businesses.

“I pray this year would be a banner year for the community,” Humphrey said. In another tradition of Coupeville’s National Day of Prayer, Carl Smith was on hand to blow his shofar, which is a ram’s horn traditionally used in Jewish ceremonies such as Rosh Hashanah. Daybreak, an Oak Harbor trio comprised of Charisse Waldron, Paula Mains and Jim Bailey, was on hand to sing several religious and patriotic songs. The color guard from the NJROTC group at Oak Harbor High School showed the American flag and the crowd spoke the Pledge of Allegiance. Coupeville’s ceremony was one of three events that took place May 2 on North and Central Whidbey Island. Two events took place in Oak Harbor. The first to place in the morning with a prayer gathering at Concordia Lutheran Church. The evening ceremony consisted of a prayer rally at the Windjammer Park gazebo.

Poppy Girl encounters war memories By Jim Larsen Record editor


Poppy Girl learns that an assisted living facility isn’t just a place where older people live, it’s where an irreplaceable storehouse of history is kept alive in the memories of residents. Wednesday, it was war stories that came out of the memory banks. People with white hair or no hair, some using canes and walkers, others a bit hard of hearing or dim of vision, told incredible stories while relishing poppydecorated cupcakes. This year’s South Whidbey American Legion Post 141 Poppy Girl is Anastasia Leese, age 6, a student in Mrs. Matthew’s first grade class at South Whidbey Elementary. She was assisted in pinning poppies to tiny U.S. flags and handing out cupcakes by Senior Poppy Girl Krista Drechsel, 15, and helper Kareena Moore, 18,

both South Whidbey High School students. Overseeing it all was Libby McCauley, of the American Legion Auxiliary. The visit to Maple Ridge Assisted Living in Freeland was the first Poppy Girl event preceding the Memorial Day ceremony at Bayview Cemetery. They’ll also be handing out red poppies and hoping for donations at the ferry docks May 18 and 19, among other activities. The poppies symbolize the call to remember those lost in war, as depicted in John McCrae’s immortal poem, “In Flanders Fields.” Anastasia handed out the first poppy-embellished flag to Bill Iiles, 94, standing tall outfitted in his dress white Navy commander uniform from World War II. His bride of three years, Phyllis, stood proudly beside him. Iiles was a Navy flyer, starting with PBY seaplanes, a staple at NAS Whidbey during the war. He was never station at Whidbey, instead he was sent to the Aleutian Islands. Then the Navy sent him to flight training for the DC-3, which he flew off Alaska, in the South Pacific and Europe, hunting down enemy submarines. Iils spent 6,000 hours in the air in his Navy career, partly in the reserves after he entered civilian life as a teacher. “They’d pay me more to fly on weekends than to teach,” he said with a chuckle. He lived in several states during his life but moved to

Whidbey when his grandson, Elijah Iles, was born. “We had to sell everything to move here,” he said. He’s glad he did, as he got to see Elijah graduate from high school last year. His son is David Iles, who lives only a short distance from Maple Ridge. The senior Iiles is still healthy and in his uniform looks like he could take over an airplane’s controls tomorrow. “I went to the doctor yesterday and he said I’m in great shape,” he said. “April 8 is my birthday and I got my driver’s license renewed in Oak Harbor.” He looked at the poppy as Anastasia handed it to him and another memory flashed back. “It reminds me more of World War I than anything,” he said. “A nephew of my dad’s never came back.” Richard Drake, 93, was an Air Force staff sergeant in World War II, a flight engineer in China who once saw the legendary Lt. General Chennault of Flying Tigers fame. After spending “four years and five months in the service,” he returned home. He said he was the first commander of American Legion Post 141, in 1947. Beverly Aldrich, 91, joined the U.S. Army Women’s Air

Corps in 1942 in Des Moines, Iowa. “I wanted in with the cooks and bakers so they put me with the medics,” she laughed. Her dreams of helping the war effort overseas never came true. She spent her entire 2 1/2 years in Des Moines. Winnie McLeod, 95, said her late husband, John, was the first man in Langley to receive a draft notice in 1941. “He was working for the government and his boss wouldn’t left him go,” she said. So he stayed at his job, “doing drawings upstairs,” which helped the war effort. Paul Davanzo had a dangerous job with the Navy during the war in underwater demolition in the Pacific and later in the English Channel two weeks before the invasion of Normandy. “We blew up obstacles placed in the water to prevent landing craft,” he said of the treacherous mission. He and his wife Margaret were married in 1947. Dorothy Burke proudly mentioned that her late husband, Art Burke, was an engineer in the Army. Bill Etheridge had one of the more harrowing tales, having spent a year as a POW in Germany. He was co-pilot of a B-17 flying over the English Channel when it was hit by German flak. “We crash landed and the

When General George Patton’s troops reached the area the prisoners were released. “We were all pretty thin, they sent us home in a ship from France,” he said. He


wrote a book about his experiences called “Time Out.” Libby McCauley of the Legion Auxiliary ended the Poppy Girl visit with a short speech, telling the veterans gathered in the dining room, “You’re the people who made this country as strong and great as it is.” No one could argue with that.

Biz beat Goosefoot leader Torget to leave A leadership transition will take place at Goosefoot beginning Sept. 1. At that time, Executive Director Debbie Torget will be leaving to become the president of Mukilteo Coffee Roasters. “It’s with mixed emotions that we’ll be bidding farewell to Debbie,” said Goosefoot Board President Candace Jordan. “She’s been with Goosefoot since its inception. Under her leadership over the past three plus years, Goosefoot has thrived, achieving a level of financial sustainability and success that we could only dream about years ago.” Mukilteo Coffee Roasters founders Gary and Beth Smith approached Torget about the position. “Her experience and leadership capabilities are exactly what we’re looking for,” accord-

ing to Gary Smith. “This is an incredible opportunity for professional and personal growth that I just couldn’t pass up,” said Torget. “It’s certainly with some sadness that I’ll be leaving. It’s hard to describe how incredible it’s been to be a part of Goosefoot and everything it has accomplished here at Bayview.” Goosefoot board and staff members are developing a leadership transition plan. Other than that, it will be business as usual over at Bayview for the Goosefoot team, states a news release. Goosefoot is a nonprofit organization dedicated to preserving and enhancing the rural character of Whidbey Island through projects that support the local economy and promote learning and community.

she’s not ready to jump ship. Coupeville’s liquor store now competes with local grocery stores. She estimates that her business has been down by around 60 percent since the market flooded with retailers. Ken Vaughan, manager of Freeland Liquor, said he’s lost a similar amount of business since privatization took place. His store is located close to a grocery store, which also started selling spirits after June 2012. On Whidbey Island, large grocery stores such as Safeway, Prairie Center and Payless Foods, now sell liquor. The small liquor stores continue to stay open. Vaughan said he hopes to see an uptick in business as the snowbirds return to Whidbey Island for the season.

Giraffe founder Kickstarts a kids’ popup book RECORD STAFF Ann Medlock, co-founder of the Langley-based Giraffe Project, is turning 80 this month. “That number is so astonishing, I’m declaring an outrageous month-long celebration that I’d like you to ‘attend’,” Medlock said, referring to her many friends and acquaintances. She launching a Kickstarter campaign this month to create a popup storybook for kids, working with artist Dorit Zingarelli and with Andrew Baron, one of the world’s greatest designers of popup books. “The book is called ‘Two Tall Tales’ and it’s about how the giraffe got its long neck (by being caring and brave, of course). It pretends to

be by the mascots I created to talk to kids in our kindergarten-through-secondgrade materials, young twin giraffes named Bea Tall and Stan Tall,” Medlock said. Kickstarter is a website where people can look over projects or products that others want to create. If you like them, you kick in some money to help fund the work. And you get “rewards” for backing them. Kickstarter rules say that creators set a financial goal and an end date. If they make the goal by the deadline, their projects are funded. If they don’t get enough pledges in time, all pledges are erased and the project is not funded. Medlock’s Kickstarter proposal went online Tuesday. In the first day she received

United Way board meets The United Way of Island County Board Meeting will be held at 3:30 p.m. May 15 in the Whidbey Island Bank Conference Room on the first floor, located at 450 S.W. Bayshore Drive in Oak Harbor. Call 360-675-1778 for more information.

Puget Sound Anglers The May 15 meeting of Puget Sound Anglers will feature Bob Crouch who is now in charge of the fishing and hunting department at Sebo‚Äôs Do It Yourself Center in Bayview. They are doubling the size of that department. He will tell what’s new in fishing, crabbing and clamming equipment and what Sebo’s plans to bring to sportsman and women in the future. The meeting is held at The Holmes Harbor Rod and Gun Club and starts at 7 p.m. Contact Pat McDaniel at patm@whidbey,com or call 360-222-3275.

Bea Tall and Stan Tall are the two main characters in a popup book planned by South Whidbey resident Ann Medlock if her Kickstarter campaign succeeds. 23 backers who pledged $5,678 toward her goal of $68,080. There were 29 days left in the campaign. Medlock emphasizes this is not fundraising. Kickstarter doesn’t allow that. All backers get something of value for their investments. As a pending octogenarian, Medlock explains why this book is the one thing she wants. “For three decades the Giraffe Heroes Project has been my cause. Two Tall Tales will extend the work of inspiring more compassionate, courageous action in the world, taking it to little kids

who will remember the ways the good giraffes in the stories stick up for each other,” she said. “They’ll think about the stories the next time they’re tempted to swipe an extra cookie or take a swing at a sibling. Parents whose kids have heard these stories in school have told us that their offspring have taken them to heart, and have acted like the caring, brave characters in the stories.” Medlock said the text and a recording are already done. Ace writer of books for children Neal Starkman has written the tales, composermusician Court Crawford

Ann Medlock wrote and performed original music, and Equity actors Lydia Boykin and Ramon MacLane recorded the voices of Stan and Bea. “That part’s all paid for, it’s all wonderful, it’s been in classrooms for years, kids love it, and it’s all audio,” she said. “But now there has to be a book!” “It’s a big undertaking to create the great popup storybook this is going be,” she added. “There will be 32 tall, skinny pages with glorious art by Dorit and enchanting movable pages engineered by Andrew. The audio will be included for kids who are too little to read.”

The movable pages will happen at the points in the tales where the giraffes change. The child will pull tabs to make the shortnecked giraffes get long necks, right on the page.

To look at the preview go to projects/1909300281/66622 4521?token=7c41bb7e. “My hope is to generate a lot of action at the kickoff so the managers of Kickstarter take note and send our pitch out as one of their own ‘favorites’ to the half-amillion Kickstarter investors we don’t know,” Medlock said. “It has to catch fire and spread if we’re going to make our goal by June 6, the end of the campaign.” More than 3,000 Kickstarter campaigns have raised the amount of backing they need, or more. “They’ve had great pitches and lots of champions,” Medlock said. “We’ve got a great pitch, now we need lots of champions.” She urges supporters to visit the Kickstart site. “I’m eager to see you there,” she said. “So are Stan and Bea.”
