Hit-and-run crash lands Clinton man in jail By BEN WATANABE Staff reporter A hit-and-run suspect picked the wrong place to turn after leaving the scene of a collision Tuesday morning at Bayview Road and Highway 525. A high-speed impact sent a Subaru Baja and its driver through the intersection from a dead stop about 11:30 a.m. The driver of the pickup that hit the Subaru left the scene, heading north toward Freeland. State Trooper Sgt. Bruce Maier, reading from the incident report Friday, said the suspect turned left onto Double Bluff Road, directly in front of the trooper who was responding to the accident. “He fled from the scene but was captured minutes later,” said Maier, identifying the man as Nicholas J. Sayko, 34, of Clinton. He was arrested on charges of driving under the influence and hitand-run. He was driving a 1997 Toyota Tacoma. The wreck scene snarled traffic in each direction for about 30 minutes. The driver of the Subaru suffered minor injuries, said South Whidbey Fire/ EMS Assistant Chief Paul Busch, who was on the scene. The driver, identified by the State Patrol as Judith E. Sleypan, 67, of Langley, was conscious and alert when first responders arrived. One witness stuck around to describe the crash to Island County Deputy Darren Crownover and the Washington State Patrol. Joel Shrut was crossing the highway on his bike on Bayview Road when the crash happened behind him. The Subaru was stopped at the light when he said a truck smashed into the car, sending the Baja screeching through the intersection until it stopped just north of the intersection near a Scotch broom patch on the side of the highway.

‘Parklets’ may solve First Street parking problems By BEN WATANABE Staff reporter

Ben Watanabe / The Record

Parking on First Street may look a little different in Langley’s future. A proposal will be made by June for the parking space configuration on Langley’s main shopping roadway to keep angled spots but remove four in favor of small pedestrian areas.

Driving along First Street, the thrust of the area is clear: business. Shops, restaurants and galleries line the road. The only problem for the merchants is parking, and it can be a major impediment to their success if cars block their storefronts. Langley’s city planner proposed three options for parking on First Street. After taking public input for months, Jeff Arango is close to making an official recommendation to the city council in June. With the support of several business owners, Arango will likely push for keeping the angled park-

ing. The twist will be the removal of four spaces in favor of two “parklets,” creating public spaces with benches, bike racks and tables. Keeping things the way they are is an option before city leaders. It’s just not a popular choice. Currently, 20 angled spaces exist on First Street with more available across the road as parallel spots. “Visually, it’s a lot more cars, particularly when larger vehicles park there it blocks the storefronts,” Arango said. A study was conducted in the summer of 2011 in which three days of parking SEE PARKING, A16

A commissioner for Whidbey General Hospital resuscitated the idea this week of asking voters to approve a bond measure. Staff members at the publicly owned hospital continue to struggle with inadequate infrastructure while making strides in medical technology and patient satisfaction. A proposal to ask the voters to approve a bond to fund expansion of the hospital — with the all-important, single-patient rooms — has been on the back burner since voters failed to pass a $50 million measure in May 2011. Hospital Commissioner Ron Wallin proposed during Monday’s hospital board meeting that hospital administration re-evaluate a bond. More than 55 percent of voters cast ballots in favor of the bond two years ago, but it fell short of the 60 percent supermajority needed for approval. Wallin cited the island’s growing population and the aging medical-surgical wing as reasons for urgency. He said construction could take as much as three years. “We have no doubts about the need for a new inpatient wing. We have the right plans and the right people in place to realize this vision,” Wallin said during the meeting. “Our community tells us in their patient satisfaction surveys that an upgrade is sorely needed.” Wallin advocated placing a proposal on the November general election. Commissioner Grethe Cammermeyer questioned whether there would be enough time to educate the SEE HOSPITAL, A16

Tons added to Kwa-di Tabil class ferries for level look discounted as nothing more than rumor. But later in the meeting, a mate said the issue is in fact real and occurs at random. Hoogerwerf said the vibration is so “radical” that it may be causing metal fatigue in railings. “Everybody had a sneaking suspicion that (the vibration) was real but it had been discounted until that came up,” Hoogerwerf said. “It’s worthwhile having meetings like this,” he said. Moseley said it’s hard to track down a problem that occurs at random so a log is

By JUSTIN BURNETT Staff reporter

The signature list of one of the state’s new 64-car ferries was corrected with 80 tons of ballast recently and the other two boats in the class are expected to receive the same improvement later this summer. Also, the Department of Transportation, Ferries Division has created a vessel improvement team that will begin meeting quarterly in an ongoing effort to tackle issues with the new boats. Both measures got the green light at a meeting last month, involving vessel operators, senior-level agency management, and two state lawmakers, Rep. Larry Seaquist, D-Gig Harbor and Rep. Norma Smith, R-Clinton. One of 15 legislators who were dogging ferry leaders over design and cost issues with the Kwa-di Tabil class ferries since 2012, Smith called the meeting both “productive” and “respectful.” “It was such an encouragement to be part of something that will make a difference, and this will make a difference,” Smith said. The meeting was also unusual as senior agency officials don’t often meet with vessel operators. David Moseley, assistant chief of Ferries Division, said he suggested the idea as a means of getting the “experts” such as designers and operators together to address some of the issues surrounding the vessels. He also considers the meeting a success. “I think we laid a good foundation for moving forward,” Moseley said.

being created that will provide more details about when it happens, where and for how long. Moseley said new boats always have bugs and the improvement team will meet as long as is needed. He said it’s a great idea and is one he expects to implement again for the 144-car Olympic-class ferries when the first goes into service in 2014. Four are planned but, so far, funding has only been secured for two.

The M/V Kennewick sails through morning fog into Keystone Harbor. A recent meeting with ferry officials and legislators resulted in several changes for the new boats. In February, the agency announced that it would add ballast to all three vessels at once at a cost of about $300,000. The extra weight would offset a designed list of about 2 degrees. Although ferry officials have maintained the list goes away once the vessels are loaded with cars, the characteristic proved unpopular following the 2010 launching of the first vessel in the class, the $83.6 million M/V Chetzemoka. According to Moseley, fixing the list would not only address the aesthetic issue, it may also improve handling by causing the vessel to sit lower in the water. “It might even save a little

fuel because it will be more efficient,” Moseley said. But the plan to address the list on all three boats at once was postponed, largely out of lawmaker concern, Moseley said. It was decided at the April meeting to see if the benefits of adding ballast to one vessel would really pencil out before making the investment on the other two. Moseley said he was confident they will and that the improvements will be made to the M/V Kennewick and Chetzemoka at the end of the summer. The new ferries have other problems as well and the job of the improvement team is to identify and come up with solutions for the bugs on a

NEWSLINE | WEATHER REPORT: Rain and showers likely today and Sunday. Partly cloudy Monday and Tuesday.

FERRIES Humphrey Road parking lot closed Humphrey Road parking lot, formerly known as Patty’s Parking, will be closed all day Sunday, May 19, for much-needed re-striping. The ferry commuter parking lot is owned by the Port of South Whidbey. Operations Manager Ed Field said the lot will be closed late Saturday night, May 18, so striping work can be completed on Sunday in one day, weather permitting. The lot will be reopened when the paint has dried on Sunday, probably late afternoon or evening, Field said. “In any case, it will be open

for business on Monday morning as usual,” he projected. However, if the effort is rained out, re-striping will be delayed until after Memorial Day. Anyone with questions may call 360-331-5494.

Incumbent Benye Weber isn’t able to run for a third term because redistricting in the wake of the 2010 census moved her home into a different district. Patton noted that the solar project at the Greenbank Farm remains incomplete and port leaders are still sorting out the transition plan over how the publicly owned farm will be managed after the current arrangement with the Greenbank Farm Management Group expires. He also said it will be “tricky” to continue oversight of both the Coupeville Wharf and the Greenbank Farm while being funded by a tax levy.

Editorial Code of ethics should be simple Langley’s latest commission has been given an interesting task: To propose to the city council a code of ethical conduct for anyone who works for the city, either elected, appointed or hired. It seems on the face of it a hopeless undertaking for a dozen volunteers. Anyone who has half-dozed through a college philosophy class knows “ethical” could take endless hours of discussion just to define. And then there’s the question of what comprises “conduct.” Such deep thoughts and the people needed to help young minds explore them explain in part why college tuition is out of reach for the average American student. They graduate up to their eyeballs in debt and unable to do anything practical, let alone ethical. The desire for a code of ethics in Langley is founded in controversy surrounding former mayors. Paul Samuelson’s relatively high salary approved by the council sparked controversy, as well as questionable conduct by some of those involved. More seriously, Larry Kwarsick ran afoul of the law by changing the conditions of a relative’s building permit when he was city planner. Both paid a price. Samuelson left city government with goals unfulfilled and perhaps embittered, while Kwarsick emerged from our legal system unable to ever again hold public office. Langley had a code of conduct during those years, but it was insufficient, at least in the eyes of Hal Seligson, who served as interim mayor for a while. The extended code of ethics was his proposal, seconded by the newly appointed mayor, Fred McCarthy. Whether the Hammurabi Code, Napoleonic Code or a future Seligson Code, unethical people have always been able go get around any code, so keep it simple. A complex code simply provides more work for lawyers. So the shorter the better. “Do it in public” fits on a bumper sticker, for example and gets the job done. The commission is starting on the right note by doing it in public, Tuesday, May 21, at 7 p.m. at the United Methodist Church Fellowship Hall. Be there, if only to tell them when they’re getting too complicated.

Letters Navigating the ethics maze To the editor: The City of Langley’s Ethics Commission is comprised of fellow citizen volunteers who meet to draft a revised code of ethical conduct under which elected and appointed city officers, employees and contractors will function. The commission has been researching the many variations of governmental codes of ethics. This initial activity has helped them gain a greater understanding of what has been done in other venues and provided insight for the formulation of a meaningful document for Langley. Aside from Mayor Fred McCarthy’s initial direction to create such a document, commission members function as a separate body from city governance. To this end, the ethics commission is seeking resident input to ensure that the document represents residents’ opinions and reflects the spirit of our community.

What are your hopes for an ethical code that will guide City Hall in the future? When completed and approved by the city council, this will be a citizen generated document to guide Langley’s elected officials, paid staff, and volunteer committee members to function in the best interests of the citizens of Langley, present and future. As was previously reported in the Record, ethics commission members will be conducting a special public meeting on Tuesday May 21, at 7 p.m. at the United Methodist Church Fellowship Hall to gain resident guidance and recommendations solely to support the formulation of this document. Your attendance and recommendations are important. The focus of the meeting will be on gaining input for the very best future governance.

My back roof was leaking in three places, they put on new roofing and replaced my old skylights. It looks great. They also did some yard work and took away a load of trash. Thanks to Damon Arndt and Glenn Jones and their crew, the roof went up fast! And thanks to the three ladies for all their help. We on Whidbey Island should be very proud to know these people. I’ve been here since 1974; I’ve never met people that are so giving! Thank you from the bottom of my heart. JANET TALBOT Langley

AccuBake® system delivers consistent, delicious results in the oven

An open house was recently held by the Department of Ecology for Island County’s new Shoreline Master Program Update. Considering the plan has new and larger waterfront setbacks for home construction I was curious and Mac McDowell concerned what the plan would say about the hundreds of waterfront homes that had been legally constructed and met the setbacks at the time of construction but would now be non-conforming for setbacks once the plan is adopted. Many of the historical waterfront lots are nowhere near the depth of the new setbacks. My concern is if there is a catastrophic event such as a fire or earthquake could the home owner rebuild if the home was damaged or destroyed. The answer is no, it can’t be rebuilt if the home is over 75 percent destroyed (minus foundation). Note: leaving out the foundation or lot cost just makes it that much more difficult to be under the 75 percent limit. Unfortunately these unexpected events do occur. Just last month an Island Transit bus ran into a building I own. I surely am glad the building was not located on the water and that all concerned had insurance (no injuries, fortunately). However an event such as a runaway bus makes it clear that unexpected events can and do occur. For those that would say just collect your insurance (if you have paid extra for code change protection), not so fast. First one would only receive cost for the home structure, not the lot that would become valueless and also I have recently learned (bus accident) if one does not rebuild your insurance may only reimburse a depreciated value even

if your insurance policy has replacement value. Therefore out of the cost you may have had for buying the waterfront home you would lose 30 percent to 50 percent of your investment because the unusable, valueless lot is not insured. Note: a waterfront home typically has a high percent of its value in the land. If one cannot rebuild the home then one would only be paid the depreciated value of the home. Depending on the age of the home, one could expect a depreciation loss of 10 to 15 percent, or more. In summary, the insurance recovery on your home that can’t be rebuilt is now down to approximately 40 to 50 percent of your total home value. During my tenure as county commissioner our board did not want to hammer the unfortunate family that had experienced a catastrophic loss and made sure if a family had legally built their home at some point in time they would be able to rebuild their home as long as it was not located any closer to the water than originally built. I asked a Department of Ecology representative if the 75 percent criterion was required or had any other communities allowed the rebuilding if 100 percent had been destroyed. He answered that some communities had used 100 percent. I then asked could anything be changed at this point in the process. He said Ecology could change it based on public comments. (I did not get a very warm fuzzy feeling). However this is the purpose of my letter. If you feel the county should not kick or punish the unfortunate family that has their home destroyed over 75 percent please contact David Pater, WA Dept. of Ecology, 3190 160th Ave. S.E. Bellevue, WA 98008 (email Explain if a home is destroyed and is now non-conforming because of increased setbacks that home should be able to be rebuilt even if 100 percent is destroyed. Also contact the county commissioners because they also can demand the change. Comments required to Ecology, no later than Friday, May 24, at 5 p.m. Sooner to the commissioners.


one, or even better to choose every-other-week or monthly service. Island Disposal has worked with the county to start a curbside recycle program for the past seven years. The proposed plan would use a wheeled 96-gallon cart, not a small bin, provided by Island Disposal, or smaller if you don’t have the room. It’s picked up every other week and all of the recycling goes in the same container, no need to separate anything. Glass would not be included because processors are less willing to accept paper coated with broken glass. Those that do process glass have little or no market to truly recycle what’s broken in the trucks and broken at the recycle plant. Glass becomes a public

relations fix instead of real recycling. Island County commissioners recently voted 2-1 to rescind an ordinance for mandatory combined recycle and garbage services which is the only way to keep recycling costs low. In response to the recent “no” vote and comments by the board of commissioners that residents are against this recycling program, we encourage residents to email and call the county commissioners representing District No. 2 and District No. 3 showing support for recycling. If those commissioners hear that you want recycling, hopefully we can start now and not wait indefinitely. Kent KovalenKo Island Disposal

Girls golf claims third team title, sends three to state By BEN WATANABE Staff reporter South Whidbey, meet the Cascade Conference champion, District 1 champion and most recently, 1A tri-district champion Falcon girls golf team. The Falcons brought home first-place hardware after qualifying Rosie Portillo, Jenna Kaik and Hannah Cotton to the state 1A tournament. “It feels pretty great,” said Kaik, a senior. “We’ve been working for that since our freshman year. It’s a good end to our senior year.” Cotton’s qualification may be the Falcons’ feat of the year. She barely qualified for the tri-district rounds after a rough outing at the District 1 tournament. She originally qualified to play at the Gold Mountain Golf Club as an alternate, but after someone dropped out, Cotton was a full-fledged tri-district golfer. Playing in the last group of the day, Cotton suspected she qualified for the state match long before she turned in her card and finished with 93 strokes. The Falcon senior didn’t want to acknowledge it before it was official, though, and played on as if she was fighting for her spot. “I knew if I started to relax I would start slacking off, so I just stayed focused,” Cotton said.

Wes Morrow / Central Kitsap Reporter

Jenna Kaik tees off during the second round of the 1A tri-district girls golf tournament. The South Whidbey senior shot a 90 to qualify for the state 1A championship. “It feels really good, because I didn’t think it was going to happen.” Changing her tee tactic paid off for Cotton. She kept her drivers in the bag and relied on her irons to take her down the fairway, culminating in a par three on the 17th hole of the second round.

Briefly Track team sends 16 to tri-district meet Seven boys and nine girls from the South Whidbey track and field team raced, leaped and threw their way to the 1A tri-district meet. South Whidbey’s senior-laden girls team sent several athletes to the tri-district meet in multiple events at the prelims Thursday, May 16. Anna Hood, a sprinter, qualified for the 100-meter sprint, 400-meter relay, 800meter relay and 1,600-meter relay. She set her career time in the 100 at 13.24 seconds. The 400-meter relay team included freshman Tera Applegate and junior Madi Boyd. On the distance relays is senior Nora Felt, who also individually qualified in the 800-meter race. The 800 relay was rounded out by junior Maia Sparkman, senior Sylvie Kaul-Anderson and Boyd. The 1,600 relay fea-

“I played safe and just hit with my irons instead of my driver, which hasn’t worked out so well this season,” Cotton said. “I could out-drive the two girls in my group just using my irons.” Cotton’s iron-clad game worked wonders. Her 93 strokes is the

Stelling set her career-best time in the mile at 5:14.68. Applegate ran the fastest time of her young Falcon career in the 100-meter hurdles for a second-place finish in 16.80 seconds. Throwers Angelina Berger and Kristen Schuster each qualified for the discus, and Berger advanced to the tri-district meet in the shot put, too. Berger won both events at the 1A District meet at Lynden Christian High School. For the Falcon boys team, junior Jordan Parrick qualified in the 300-meter hurdles as the fifth-place finisher. He set his best time at 45.02 seconds. Hunter Parrick, Brandon Asay, Cole Zink and Kale Reichersamer qualified for the tri-district round in the 1,600-meter relay, in which they placed third in 3:36.69.

lowest of her varsity career by six strokes. Portillo, a sophomore, finished with the best round on her team with 87 strokes, good for a seventhplace tie. Chipping onto the greens was her greatest asset in the tournament, especially the 17th hole

360-631-0678 360-331-5773

where she birdied after her tee-off shot landed about 5 feet from the hole. On the longer holes, Portillo relied on her chip shots to get her on the green. “I’d be a little short on my second hit, but I’d make up for it with my chipping,” she said. Kaik returns to the girls golf state tournament for the third time in three years. As South Whidbey’s lone state-experience golfer, Kaik eyed a return all season. That goal came under scrutiny when her putts started missing the cup and lipping out this week. On the third hole of the second round, Kaik thought she had a long putt for birdie but watched the ball lip out and sit an inch from the hole. A few greens like that, and Kaik’s score shot from her District 1-championship 82 strokes to 90 at the tri-district tournament. “It wasn’t what I wanted to do,” Kaik said. “It was all right as a score, I guess.” “Everything was going well, but my putts on Tuesday were going straight for the hole and would lip out at the last second,” she said. South Whidbey will tee off at the state 1A girls golf tournament May 21 at Lake Spanaway Golf Course. The tournament field is cut in half after the first day.

County recycling decision is against the birds

WHIDBEY BIRDING Frances Wood Last month I had the opportunity to visit family in New York. On the day of my return flight, the morning news announced that New York’s already extensive curbside recycle program would soon

expand to accept some previously excluded items like shampoo bottles and other difficult-to-recycle plastics. I rejoiced along with local newscasters who praised the city for broadening its commitment to recycling. Later that night when I returned to Whidbey and picked up the South Whidbey Record, I learned that the Island County commissioners had reversed their decision to support a curbside recycling program. My heart sank. I will be the first to acknowledge that New York City and Whidbey Island are as different from each other as night and day. And I know that there are important issues to consider with Island County’s decision. But I must ask this question: Have we forgotten our com-

mitment to ethical stewardship of Mother Earth and the long-term health of ourselves as well as the birds that share our planet? I don’t have to convince anyone that recycling does preserve natural habitat. For every pile of newspapers recycled, fewer trees are cut from forests that house and sustain countless bird species. For every aluminum can recycled, less native jungle is destroyed to mine bauxite, the main component of aluminum. Recycling aluminum consumes only 30 percent of the electricity required to make new aluminum. There are many additional issues that must be factored in: including oil production, transportation and our everexpanding landfills. I know all this, yet I must confess that I do a more diligent job of recycling when my husband is available to haul our recycle away. Curbside recycling alongside our garbage pick up would help me be a better

earth steward. As I write this, a male California quail is perched atop one of the fence posts surrounding our home vineyard. He has been calling and calling for days trying to attract a female into his territory so he can begin the breeding season. So far, no one except my husband and I have taken notice. We used to have several quail coveys in our neighborhood but for the last five years we’ve had none. Although a pair of barn swallows returned from wintering in South America to our house a few weeks ago, they’ve evidently moved on. To date there has been no nesting activity, whereas in the past we’ve had four or five pairs raising young in mud nests tucked under the eaves of our house. I can’t help but note that many of our barn swallows winter in Brazil, the third largest bauxite producer in the world. On the bright side, lemon yellow American goldfinches

and tiny brownish pine siskins are swarming my thistle seed feeder. Mama Bewick’s wren is still tending her nest right outside our front door. Two blackheaded grosbeaks and a female Bullock’s oriole have recently visited my suet feeder. I’ve heard both olive-sided and willow flycatchers calling from the trees beside our house and an early arriving Swainson’s thrush fills the evening with heavenly birdsong. Last evening my husband and I watched a flock of western tanagers glean through the alder trees behind our home. These bird sightings plus all the inspiration and wellbeing we receive from a healthy natural environment should also weigh into the decision about curbside recycling. My article last month ended with this sentence, which bears repeating: “The birds have done their part to learn to live with us. Isn’t it time that we bend our ways to give them a helping hand?” This month I add the reminder that a decision for a sustainable, healthy environment is also a decision about our human future.

Whidbey home goes up in flames RECORD STAFF

A fire of unknown origin claimed a mobile home on North Whidbey Thursday morning. The blaze is believed to have started sometime after midnight in a singlewide trailer at the back of an undeveloped lot on Van Dam Road. Firefighters worked to extinguish the flames for at least an hour, but the building was completely destroyed. By first daylight, the home was a smoking ruin of scorched appliances, warped metal and melted plastic. Fire officials strongly believe the home was unoccupied but the site was still being searched, said Marv Koorn, fire chief for North Whidbey Fire and Rescue. “It doesn’t look like anyone was in it, but we haven’t totally pulled it apart yet,” Koorn said. The blaze was reported atWhy 12:43wa.m. by saave Westm on a i t to Beach Road resident who n i g h t for a f re e qu o te o said they smelled smoke and saw a glow in the sky, Koorn said.

County headhunters may snare a planner Filing period creates competition By JuSTin BuRnETT Staff reporter Island County may have a new planning chief as soon as next week. The board of commissioners interviewed four finalists in two sets of closed-door interviews Monday and were planning two more later this week. If all goes well, the board will make a selection at its next regular business meeting, Monday, May 20, though a decision will not be rushed, said Commissioner Kelly Emerson, board chairwoman. “We would all like to see this happen sooner rather than later,” Emerson said. “We’ve been stretched pretty thin. But we’re not going to act in haste; it’s too important of a decision.” The board may opt to hold additional interviews, if required, she said. That decision would also be decided at next week’s meeting. Bob Pederson, former director of Island County Planning and Community Development, resigned in March. Keith Higman, who leads the health and natural resources departments, has been filling in ever since. According to Melanie

Bacon, director of Island County Human Resources, a total of 29 applications were received. That list was whittled down to 10 candidates by the commissioners and further reduced to four finalists by an advisory committee. The group consisted of four people; Higman, Public Works Director Bill Oakes, Dan Mitchell from the Prosecutor’s Office, and a retired planning chief for King County who is now retired and living on Whidbey Island. “Clearly a very competent and engaged group of people,” Bacon said.

While appointing replacements for elected positions is an open process with interviews conducted in public, the hiring of department heads is generally more closed. The decision is made in open session but interviews and the names of other applicants are not released. Emerson did say that all four finalists have planning experience in Washington and have comparable skill sets. “I think it’s a real good list … I feel confident that we will see our next planning director come out of this group,” Emerson said.


Veteran South Whidbey School District board of directors member Fred O’Neal decided to run again for his position, perhaps after seeing he would have some competition. O’Neal said early in the week he wasn’t certain he would file for his Position 2 seat. However, Rocco Gianni, who is ending his career as a Langley Middle School teacher this year, filed early Thursday morning. At 2:14 a.m. to be exact, according to the Island County Auditor’s website. Later that morning, at 10:02 a.m., O’Neal threw his hat in the ring. Barring a third candidate or other changes on Friday, the two will meet in the general election.

The second open seat on the school board, Position 5, is up for grabs with the incumbent sitting it out. Seeking the position through Thursday were Miriam Coates and Betty Bond. Port of South Whidbey board President Curt Gordon filed early in the week, but found out later he will have competition for a second term in Position 3. Ed Jenkins filed Thursday at 10:44 a.m. Jenkins ran before and criticized the port on some spending issues. He frequently attended regular port meetings but hasn’t been seen there for several months. For Langley City Council, Margot Jerome filed Wednesday for Position 2, while Thomas Gill filed for Position 5. Doug Allderdice and Hal Seligson will leave the council.

1948 - 2013 I am tucked away in my favorite outfit. Overalls, garden hat and muck boots on one of the most beautiful and magical places on earth…Whidbey Island. The most difficult part of this journey is that I had to leave my loved ones. My husband and friend Douglas who has been by my side for 40 years. When he found me I was a broken person. He helped me leave darkness behind and find love and happiness. I had found “home”. We have had so many wonderful adventures together. He always makes me laugh with his mischievous sense of humor. No words can describe what a terrific dad and mentor he is. He’s a sweet person with a big heart without a mean bone in his body. We have always been able to get through the ups and downs of life because of our love and commitment to each other. He’s been a gentle and compassionate caregiver to the end. How lucky can a girl be. My son and pal Brandon - like most parents, I can’t imagine that anyone could love their child as much as I love him. He’s always made me proud of him in so many ways. So many special moments. We had so much fun when the two of us spontaneously decided to take a road trip. When our family were participants in the San Francisco Gay

How honored I was when he asked me to walk him down the aisle when he married our son-in-law. We have laughed often, sometimes hysterically, usually at the most inappropriate times. I can’t thank our son-inlaw Roger, our friends, my cousins, aunts and uncles enough for their love and support, night or day. It gives me great comfort to know they will still be there for Doug and Bran. Also, a big thanks to my doctors, the wonderful folks at Hospice, the medical staff at Whidbey General and Providence Cancer Care Partnership for their excellent and compassionate care. One last wish…put on some nice jazz, pour some bubbles and make a toast… to yourselves for being such wonderful people and making a difference in my life… Cheers.

On the dashboard of the Smart car was a disabled parking pass, and on the passenger seat was a cane, which the driver later grabbed so she could sit on a bench outside Ott & Murphy. The Smart car crashed against a parked Nissan Sentra in the space next to it, scraping the front passenger-side paneling. The position of the two cars, seemingly tangled, made it difficult for the Smart car to reverse itself off the sidewalk and away from the building. Mike Cotton, deputy chief for South Whidbey Fire/EMS, said it would likely take a tow truck to slide the Smart Car away from the Sentra first, especially since he estimated the Smart Car was not drivable.

The Latin students at Island Christian Academy have earned above-average scores for their participation in the National Latin Exam and the National Mythology Exam.

through Classics Program for elementary and middle levels. Its purpose is to motivate students to learn about classical mythology and literature. Bartel’s seventh and eighth grade Latin class took the National Latin Exam. Students were tested on their ability to read and comprehend a Latin passage, their knowledge of Latin grammar, the civilization of Rome and mythology, and their ability to recognize original Latin sayings and phrases from everyday life. For example, “E Pluribus Unum” is found on our coins and means “one out of many.” “Once you begin to learn Latin roots and phrases, you begin to notice them everywhere,” Bartel said. Certificates of achievement were awarded to seventh graders Payton Gravley, Kyli DeMers, and Emma Scotthanson

Christian Academy begin their Latin study in grade three, but even the kindergartners are exposed to basic phrases and words. “Latin is a mental discipline that trains the mind much like sports does for the body,” Bartel said. “Latin teaches students to think systematically and logically and that carries over into their other subjects. Latin teaches vocabulary and roots, and since half of our English language comes from Latin it prepares students for occupations in science, medicine, law, theology and the social sciences.” She added, “Latin teaches students how to better understand English grammar and also prepares them to learn a modern language such as Spanish or French, which are both derived from Latin. Latin also increases student SAT scores.” “I love teaching Latin because it benefits my students in so many ways,” Bartel said.

Kid’s vision sparks new parks pump track for bikers RECORD STAFF Bike riders have a new home on South Whidbey, thanks to an eighth-grade boy. Blake Deilke proposed and helped build a pump track for bikes at Community Park. The dirt track is scheduled to open with an official ceremony Sunday, May 19. Though that hasn’t kept pumpers from trying the track already. “It’s effectively open at this point,” said Doug Coutts, parks director. Working with a host of volunteers under the mentorship of David Gardiner of Half Link Bicycle Shop, Deilke and the parks district maintenance staff built the pump track. Pump tracks are closed circuits with rollers in between and berms at each end designed to be ridden without pedaling. Though the rollers look like dirt jumps, they are spaced too closely for any effective air to be caught by thrill-seeking riders. “It is not designed to be jumped.” Coutts said. “You’re rolling over those.” Riders use their body to pump or push down into the dip after an elevation and pull up before the crest of a mound, doing this throughout the continuous loop. Absorbing and compressing a bike over rollers, riders convert gravitational force and downward thrust into speed. The track roughly runs the width of Community Park’s skate park. “It’s not designed to be big,” Coutts said. “It’s basically a workout for people who ride these bikes.”

Blake Deilke hits a sloped turn on the new South Whidbey Parks pump track near the Community Park skateboard park. A grand opening celebration will be held Sunday, May 19 with a welcome and introduction at 2 p.m., demonstration at 2:05 and a trial ride at 2:15. All the same safety rules and guidelines for the skate park apply to the pump track, with limited liability for the parks district.

Hot dogs and lemonade will be available with a suggested $2 donation going to the parks district. The new track is located next to the skate park at Community Park, 5495 Maxwelton Road, Langley. “We think it’s a great addition to the park,” Coutts said.

David Gardner, Blake Deilke Jason Heggenes and Tim Peitsch shovel dirt around the rollers at Community Park’s new pump track. The dirt bike circuit is designed to be ridden with minimal pedaling. Instead riders pump their weight up and down on the rollers and around the sloped turns.

The Rural Characters benefit Local Artist Series RECORD STAFF

Whidbey Island Center for the Arts in Langley presents The Rural Characters in concert to benefit the WICA Local Artist Series, Saturday, May 18, at 7:30 p.m. The Rural Characters began singing together in 1997; brought together in order to perform as singing cowboys for that year’s “Flip Side” of Langley. They had so much fun they have stuck together ever since. In 2003, the Characters won a spot in WICA’s Local Artist Series. That concert, “16 Chickens and a Tambourine” went so well that WICA invited them to return the next year to do a show to benefit the series. This year marks the 11th anniversary, and will feature the Characters’ favorite songs and shenanigans from over the years with a few new numbers sprinkled in. Because it has been so hard for the guys to choose what songs to leave out, they are giving fair warning that you should plan on being up past bedtime, and your cheeks are going to hurt. They gained some early notoriety for a song written for Dave Anderson when he was first running for House of Representatives. “Whidbey Island Democratic Guy,”

sung to the tune of “Rocky Mountain High.” It was their first original song that captured local flavor and wit, and they have been telling the story of island living ever since. “The Characters have had many wonderful guests perform with them through the years, and I wish to thank them all sincerely for their talents and support,” said June Juneau of WICA media. This year’s guests will be Greg Garbarino and Russell Link. “Specifically regarding this year’s show I would say that we were a little concerned after highlighting so much of our favorite material in last year’s 10th anniversary show. However, it has turned out to be a creative year and we have written a lot of new songs, adapted a couple others for parody, and re-polished a few of our early numbers and are excited about this year’s show. We once again explore life on South Whidbey in ways that we hope will tug at your funny bone and tickle your heart,” said Randy Hudson. Tickets to tonight’s show cost $25 and are available from the theater’s website, at the WICA Ticket Office, and by calling 360-221-8268 or 800-638-7631.

The Rural Characters perform tonight at Whidbey Island Center for the Arts.

Animals shelter in Oak Harbor RECORD STAFF Oak Harbor officials finally found a new site for the city animal shelter. Last week, Oak Harbor City Council members approved a lease agreement with an option to purchase the Freedom Kennels on Goldie Road. The acquisition will cost the city $2,500 a month, plus an additional $10,000 for the option to purchase. If all goes well, the city expects to remodel the kennels at a cost of up to

$20,000 prior to the move. “It would be really nice to be off the base and somewhere that has better access,” said Shari Bibich, shelter manager for Whidbey Animals’ Improvement Foundation. The group, commonly called WAIF, manages the city’s dog-and-cat pound. The city has struggled with the animal-shelter issue for years. The city’s current shelter is housed in a decrepit building on the Navy’s seaplane base.

On First Street, however, peak occupancy was counted as high as 95 percent of the spots, basically meaning only one or two spaces were open. That means street side real estate is important for the business owners on First Street, but there are places to park within a block or so.

public. She recommended possibly holding off on such a proposal until February. Whidbey General Hospital CEO Tom Tomasino said he doesn’t know how big the bond will need to be. He said he will re-examine the 2011 proposal along with researching construction costs, market conditions and housing prices to come up with a new proposal. A volunteer group has yet to form to help promote the bond to Whidbey voters. If voters had approved the bond in 2011, it would have paid for construction of a new wing on the south side of the hospital’s campus. That new wing would include 39 singlepatient rooms, which would have replaced the current 34 beds housed in double rooms. Wallin said the information about the proposal will be shared with the public once the bond details become available. “The public wants the facts and figures,” Wallin said.

Michaela Marx Wheatley

‘Tears and Cheers’ in Langley Personnel changes are happening at the Langley Main Street Association that will affect The South Whidbey Record. Michaela Marx Wheatley is leaving her position as Main Street’s program manager, a position that will be filled by Lorinda Kay. Wheatley was a Record reporter for several years and more recently has been a part-time staff writer. Kay has a history with The Record going back to the ’80s as a reporter, photographer, feature writer, ad salesperson and office manager. Wheatley and her family are moving to Oklahoma where her husband will study to become a dentist. Kay will continue living in Glendale where she has been a resident for many years. Although leaving the employment of Sound Publishing, which owns The South Whidbey Record, Kay will still feel like part of the family. Main Street and The Record share office space in the old Island Travel building located in Langley Village.

The Washington State Parks and Recreation Commission invites the public to attend the eighth annual Salish Sea Native American Culture Celebration with the Samish and Swinomish tribes. The celebration runs from noon to 4 p.m. Saturday, June 8, at the Bowman Bay picnic area on the Fidalgo Island side of Deception Pass State Park, 41020 State Route 20, Oak Harbor. The event celebrates the maritime heritage of the two participating Coast Salish tribes. This year’s event also commemorates the 100th birthday of the Washington state park system, which was created by the Legislature in 1913. The June 8 event will feature canoe rides and native singers, drummers and storytellers. Artists from the two tribes will demonstrate traditional weaving, cedar work and woodcarving. A salmon and frybread lunch also will be available for purchase. The Discover Pass is not required to attend the event. In recognition of National Get Outdoors Day, Saturday,

June 8 is a State Parks “free day,” when visitors to state parks are not required to display a Discover Pass. Cultural event activities are presented by the Samish Indian Nation, the Samish Canoe Family, the Swinomish Indian Tribal Community and the Swinomish Canoe Family. Proceeds from food sales at the Salish Sea Native American Culture Celebration support the Samish and Swinomish canoe families’ participation in the annual intertribal canoe journey; each year, tribes and nations from the Pacific Northwest travel by canoe to different host communities along the Salish

Sea. This year, the Quinault Tribe plays host to the intertribal canoe journey, which lands in Taholah on Aug. 1. For more information about this year’s canoe journey, visit Deception Pass State Park is a 4,134 acre marine and camping park with 77,000 feet of saltwater of shoreline, and 33,900 feet of freshwater shoreline on three lakes. The park is best known for views of Deception Pass and Bowman Bay, old-growth forests, abundant wildlife and the historic Deception Pass Bridge.
