Woman says she was assaulted in workplace Victim critical of response by police, employer By JESSIE STENSLAND Staff reporter

She still shakes uncontrollably when talking about it. A 51-year-old North Whidbey woman said it was absolutely terrifying when a customer assaulted her while she was working in the back room of the Oak Harbor Safeway April 30.

What made it worse, she said, is how she was treated afterward by her employer and police. She said she feels re-victimized. “Nobody has done anything,” she repeatedly said during an interview with the Whidbey News-Times Thursday. Part of the problem might be a breakdown in communication,

said Police Chief Ed Green, adding police were investigating the case from day one. In fact, he said Friday morning, police may have a suspect identified. “Law-and-justice investigations can frustrate folks,” he said. “I understand that. They don’t always move as fast as people think they should.” THE LONGTIME resident asked that her name not be published in the newspaper because she

fears her assailant might try to harm her. But she said she decided to tell her story because she wants the public’s help in identifying the man “I want to go back to work,” she said, “but I can’t. I won’t feel safe until they find him.” The woman explained that she was in the back room of the grocery store when a tall man wearing a red shirt entered through the doors. See assault reported, A5

The Swinomish Indian Tribal Community is offering to settle a $9 million complaint against the City of Oak Harbor for desecration of an Indian burial ground beneath Pioneer Way. City officials aren’t jumping for joy over the proposal. The tribal community is demanding the city turn over the old city shop property to the tribe after converting it into a cemetery; implement a city-wide cultural resources management plan; and pay the tribe $3.9 million. “The citizens of Oak Harbor have already ponied up $4 million for reclamation and are looking at another one to two million for reburial,” Mayor Scott Dudley said. “I can’t ask them to pay another $4 million.” Tribe attorney Emily Haley sent the letter offering “compromise claims” to the city earlier this month. The Whidbey News-Times obtained a copy of the proposal through a public records request. The Swinomish surprised city officials in April by filing a complaint for damages for $9

Hill at Hastie Lake, Zylstra to get $1.13-million fix By JUSTIN BURNETT Staff reporter

A dangerous dip on a rural North Whidbey road is slated for a $1 million fix this summer. Island County Board of Commissioners last week gave a green light for public works to shave down a car-hiding hill on Zylstra Road just north of the Hastie Lake Road intersection. Several attention-getting devices designed to warn drivers of the intersection will also be installed on both sides of Hastie Lake Road. They include flashing stop signs, rumble strips and possibly, a flashing “stop ahead” sign. Total project cost is estimated at $1.13 million, but this is a Federal Highway Safety Improvement project and $599,452 is covered by grant funds, according to Bill Oakes, director of Public Works. The remainder, $533,548, will come from public work’s road fund. As a federal highway safety improvement project, Oakes said, the county was awarded a grant and provided a list of areas where the money might be used. Each was identified as dangerous or having a history of accidents, he said. The dip and hill on Zylstra — a through street — is so extreme that vehicles are completely hidden to drivers stopped at Hastie Lake Road. Along with being accident prone, the “physical deficiency”doesn’t meet current code requirements, making it the good choice for the federal funds, Oakes said. But not everyone is so convinced. “I think it’s a big waste of money, myself,”

said Martin VanRensum, a farmer who has lived near the intersection for more than 70 years. Despite the dip in the road, accidents at the intersection are not that common and it’s been years since the last one occurred, he said. VanRensum also questioned the effectiveness of a flashing red stop signs, but, in the end, wasn’t willing to condemn the project entirely. “It’s probably a good thing. ... What do I know?” said VanRensum, giving a shrug and a smile. Devin Joslin, traffic engineer for Public Works, said VanRensum may be right about accident history at the intersection. The areas where federal grant money could be used were identified from data collected by a University of Washington study conducted 2002-06. The study identifies all serious accidents and drew a half-mile circle around them. Any area where more than five circles overlap were singled out as candidates for the federal funding. Seven accidents took place in the four-year test period, Joslin said, but confirmed only two were at the intersection of Zylstra and Hastie Lake roads. Both he and Oakes, however, remain confident about the project’s need. “There is a sight-distance deficiency this project is going to fix,” Oakes said. “It’s warranted.” As for the flashing red signs, they get peoples’ attention, he said. They are so noticeable that have proven

Island County will spend more than $1 million fixing the problem later this summer. track record for reducing accidents and, occasionally, getting on peoples’ nerves. Oakes confirmed that a flashing stop sign on Camano Island was recently defaced with what is believed to have been a shotgun. “It looks like somebody shot it twice ... but they didn’t kill it,” Oakes told the board last week, earning a round of chuckles from the commissioners.

“It’s still flashing.” The project has widespread support. “This is an important improvement and I think it’s a great project,” Commissioner Jill Johnson. A construction contract still requires approval by the board, but Oakes hopes construction will begin as soon as August. Work is expected to take about two months.

Island observes Memorial Day with parade, ceremonies By RON NEWBERRY Staff reporter

As mayor of a military town such as Oak Harbor, Scott Dudley said he is honored to speak at Monday’s Memorial Day services in two Whidbey Island communities. The holiday is dear to him because of where he lives and the nearly four years spent in his early adult life in military service before a medical discharge. “I think being in a military community, the least we can do is to remember those who gave the ultimate sacrifice,” Dudley said. “This is the first time I’ve actually spoke at the service. I’ve attended quite a few over the years. I look forward to it.” The Memorial Day service will be at Maple Leaf Cemetery in Oak Harbor at 10 a.m., followed by another at historic Sunnyside Cemetery near Coupeville at 11:30. Dudley will be the guest speaker at both of those services. The ceremonies will be hosted by Veterans of Foreign Wars Post 7392, American Legion Post 129 and the Fleet Reserve. A potluck will be held at VFW Post 7392 on Goldie Road in Oak Harbor after the services and is open to the public, post commander Keith Wooldridge said. Memorial Day also will be a day to learn more about island history and its pioneers. Central Whidbey Island historian and pioneer descendant Roger Sherman will lead a guided tour of Sunnyside Cemetery at 1 p.m. Sherman will share how various settlers

played a role in the development of Whidbey Island. Those interested in the hour-long tour should meet at the blockhouse, Sherman said. The cost is $5 with proceeds going to the Island County Historical Society. Sunnyside Cemetery is located on the north ridge of Ebey’s Prairie. Special places to observe on North Whidbey include Veterans Memorial Park near the Maui Gate entrance of the Seaplane Base at Whidbey Island Naval Air Station. For those who have access to the main base, Prowler Memorial Park is located along Charles Porter Avenue across from the Haviland hangar. That memorial is dedicated to the EA-6B Prowler air crews, maintenance personnel and their families. The Memorial Day activities on the island kick off with a parade through Coupeville on Saturday starting at 11 a.m. Among those in the parade are five Pearl Harbor survivors. South Whidbey is also marking the day with ceremonies. American Legion Post 141, with the Marine Corps, will host a Memorial Day Ceremony at 11 a.m. May 27 at the Bayview Cemetery. All are welcome to a potluck afterwords at the Legion hall on Highway 525. Memorial Day service at the Clinton Cemetery will be May 27 at 11 p.m. Guest speaker is Whidbey Island resident Trisha Hallgren, retired United States Air Force senior master sergeant E-8. She was a

BRIDGE COLLAPSE CONTINUED FROM A1 international headlines, Oak Harbor community is abuzz with the news that two of their own miraculously survived with non-life-threatening injuries. A man in a different vehicle also sustained only minor injuries after his car plunged into the water. Oak Harbor residents Dan Sligh and his wife were in their pickup on Interstate 5 heading to a camping trip when a bridge before them disappeared in a “big puff of dust,” the Associated Press reported Friday. “I hit the brakes and we went off,” Sligh told AP, adding he “saw the water approaching ... you hold on as tight as you can.” Sligh and his wife were taken to Skagit Valley


Hospital. The other man was reported in stable condition at United General Hospital in Sedro-Woolley. Sligh’s shoulder was dislocated in the fall in the water. He told reporters that he popped his shoulder back in so that he could help his wife, who was in shock. The Navy reported that a member of the searchand-rescue team from NAS Whidbey helped pull the couple of safety. NAS Whidbey Island’s SAR team lifted off from the base in the MH-60 helicopter at 7:45 p.m. The helicopter landed near the bridge to help the onscene rescue services commander, who requested a rescue swimmer.


4th OH July

Rescue swimmer Timothy Hawk, an aviation warfare systems operator second class, boarded a small emergency services boat and helped free and pull the two individuals out of their vehicle. On shore, Hospitalman Second Class Brent McIntyre assisted with triage. The rescuers loaded the couple into an ambulance, which transported them to Skagit Valley Hospital. The helicopter crew then searched the river for other possible victims, but found none. A truck hauling a too-tall load of drilling equipment is being blamed for the catastrophic bridge failure. The Washington State Patrol confirmed Friday that “the oversized load struck the trusses that supported the bridge causing the collapse, sending a section of the span and two vehicles into the Skagit River.” The collapse comes just ahead of the Memorial Day weekend and is expected to snarl traffic in the Mount Vernon and Burlington area

for some time. Oak Harbor Mayor Scott Dudley said the bridge collapse raises concerns with Deception Pass Bridge. He pointed out that the two-span bridge connecting Whidbey Island to Fidalgo Island is older than the bridge that collapsed. “It’s over saltwater and it’s 180 feet up.” Dudley said he was recently assured by officials from the Washington State Department of Transportation that the bridge is safe, but he’s still worried about the lack of planning for the future. Dudley said he’s concerned about what would happen if the bridge was closed in an emergency, but also the long-range plans for replacing the aging structure. He said he will push state officials to take up the issue. Washington State Patrol Trooper Mark Francis told the Skagit Valley Herald the driver works for Mullen Trucking in Alberta. The tractor-trailer, which was marked as an oversize

load, was hauling a housing for drilling equipment to Vancouver, Wash., he said. An accident report said the driver was William Scott, of Spruce Grove, Alberta. He voluntarily gave a blood sample for an alcohol test and was not arrested, the Associated Press reported. The truck made it off the bridge and the driver remained at the scene and cooperated with investigators. The bridge is used by an average of 71,000 vehicles a day, so the roadblock will cause a major disruption in trade and tourism. Many Canadians travel to Burlington to shop at the out-

let mall, Costco and other businesses. The Washington Transportation Department set up detours. The department also is recommending detours using state highways 20 and 9 that add tens of miles to a trip. Drivers are urged to avoid the area, if possible, especially over Memorial Day weekend. “The I-5 corridor is totally disrupted,” said Washington Gov. Jay Inslee, who was at the scene Thursday night. “Thanks to the rescuers and a little bit of luck, we had three Skagitonians who made it out of the Skagit River alive,” Inslee said.

Hey Guys! Worrying about losing your hair causes your forehead muscles to tighten your scalp, impeding blood to the hair roots and the roots die. Frown and you will feel it happen. Th fix is easy. Loosen your scalp to return to normal blood flow to your hair roots and you will make your hair healthy again. Doing it isn’t easy but do it. Push up your scalp with your hands firmly all around your head and when you can finally make wrinkles in your scalp you will see results and soon start using your hairbrush again. And you will also quit worrying. The above article was in the News-Times two years ago.

Tribe offer CONTINUED FROM A1 million. The claim accuses city officials of digging up the known site of a burial ground during the 2011 Pioneer Way street project. At that time, Dudley said he was disheartened that the tribe filed the claim. He said there was a unwritten agreement between the city and tribe that they wouldn’t sue as long as the city took all the actions the tribe felt were necessary. The city did everything the tribe

asked, Dudley said. Dudley said he expects a lawsuit will be filed by the tribe next month. City engineers project that the city will spend $4 million in the ongoing effort to recover the remains and cultural artifacts. Dudley said the city hired the archaeological firm that the tribe wanted. The city hired tribal members for security, spiritual oversight, handling and other work.

ASSAULT REPORTED CONTINUED FROM A1 He said he needed to use the restroom, so she walked him down the “tunnel” to the bathrooms. She walked away and went back to work. Suddenly, she said, the man grabbed her from behind in what she characterized as a “chokehold.” The man told her to kiss him. She said “no” and tried to pulled away. The man squeezed her harder and tried to kiss her. He squeezed tight enough, she said, to painfully press a plastic tag into the back of her neck. He asked, “Don’t you want to kiss me?” She said “no.” Then as suddenly as he attacked, she said the man was gone. THE WOMAN explained that store employees are trained not to “make a scene” but to tell a manager if a customer does something inappropriate. She searched the store until she found two assistant managers. She told them what happened. The male manager, she said, told her “he didn’t want anyone that drunk shopping in his store,” according to the woman. “They laughed it off,” she said. “They didn’t do anything.” The woman said she was in shock and near the end of her shift, so she went back to work and then home. When she returned to work the next day, she was overcome with fear. She said she again talked to one of the assistant managers, who apologized after realizing the seriousness of the incident. They called the police. THE WOMAN said an officer responded, took her statement and retrieved store surveillance video which shows the suspect. The video shows the man in the store with an unknown woman, going in the back room and then coming out again. He continued shop-

ping with the woman. The victim said the officer told her he would refer the case to a detective, who would contact her. The woman said she waited, but heard nothing. She finally called Detective Sgt. Teri Gardner. She claims Gardner told her she got the report from the officer, but that it didn’t indicate the woman wanted to press charges. Gardner said she gave it back to the officer to handle. THE ALLEGED victim said she called the officer; she claims he was rude, saying that it should have been obvious to Gardner that she wanted to press charges. During an interview this week, Gardner said the department sent still images of the suspect from the surveillance tape to all law enforcement offices on the island, including Naval Criminal Investigative Services. No one was able to identify the man. Gardner said she didn’t assign the case to a detective because they are busy with

The letter from the tribe asks for $3.9 million “to compensate for the great stress, anguish, and spiritual and emotional distress that the city’s actions have caused the Tribe and its members to suffer.” The tribal community is also asking for the title to the old city shop property at the end of City Beach Street. The letter states that the city shall bear all costs related to reburial of the ancestral remains, which may include building a memorial. Haley wrote that city officials should also acknowledge publicly that the project desecrated “a significant Lower Skagit and Swinomish

felony-level crimes. She said the Safeway assault appeared to be a misdemeanor fourthdegree assault, based on the police report. Gardner said the report she received didn’t say anything about a “chokehold” or “stranglehold.” She didn’t know if the victim, who was extremely upset and has trouble talking about the incident, neglected to tell the entire story or if the officer neglected to write it down. THE NEWS-TIMES inquired with police about the incident in April, but never received any information. The newspaper again inquired about the case this past Thursday. Within hours, the police department put up images of the suspect on the

village site and burial ground”; the desecration caused serious emotional and economic harm to the tribal people; the tribe acted to protect its ancestors; and the city has taken responsibility for its actions. One of many concerns he has with the offer is the Swinomish isn’t the only tribe claiming Oak Harbor as ancestral ground, Dudley said. He said the city worked with six tribes at one point. “If there’s a settlement, we think that it should be fair to all the tribes that claim these remains as their ancestors,” he said. The mayor said neither the city

department’s Facebook page with a short narrative asking the public for help in identifying the man. Images were also sent to the News-Times. Green said he couldn’t explain why the images weren’t released earlier. He said he’ll look into whether the officer was rude to the victim. IN ADDITION to a slow response from law enforcement, the woman said she isn’t happy with the way Safeway managers responded to the incident. She said she became so upset after the incident that she could no longer go near Safeway without shaking uncontrollably and crying. She contacted state Labor and Industries, but reportedly Safeway hadn’t done the

nor its insurance pool has responded to the Swinomish’s claim yet. The insurance may not cover the damages if city officials were found to have acted “knowingly or willfully” in their negligence, he said. Dudley argues that the digging up and removing of human remains was a bad mistake, but wasn’t done on purpose. The road project occurred under the previous mayor. The state archeologist warned the city beforehand about an archeological site in the proximity of the project, but officials didn’t follow the advice.

necessary “incident report.” A manager told her they didn’t view the assault as an “incident,” she said. The woman said she asked managers to display images of the suspect in a break room so employees would know what happened and whom to watch for. They allegedly refused. An assistant manager at the Safeway manager said she was unable to comment on the incident. SINCE THE assault, the employee said she is a nervous wreck, sees a counselor and is on anti-anxiety medication. She said she never realized she was so fragile. “This is not who I am,” she said. “I just want my life back.” The woman said the inci-

dent is especially upsetting because it appears similar to an assault Jan. 2 at a nearby tanning salon. In that case, a man armed with a handgun entered the business after hours and he severely beat and attempted to rape a female employee. The woman from the tanning salon said she spoke to a detective later that day. He told her the Safeway suspect clearly didn’t match the description of her attacker, so he didn’t want to upset her by asking her to look at it. The tanning salon worker said the police did an amazing job investigating her case, treating her with respect and keeping her constantly apprised of the investigation. No suspect in that case has been identified.

IN OUR OPINION Memorial Day is a time to express our gratitude for service We all have a unique point of view of the military. That perspective is reflective of our beliefs and background. Many of us have never served in the military and can’t pretend to know what it is like any more than a caucasian can truly understand the pains of discrimination faced by minorities. Most of us have never looked down the barrel of an enemy’s gun, left families for months at a time or handled a weapon. Regardless, we are free. Free because others have served, sacrificed, died. And for that we should be, and are, grateful. Perhaps your grandfather served during World War I, your father during World War II. Maybe you have a child who is about to enter the military. Among us there are children whose mothers and fathers are frequently absent from home as they fulfill their military duties. Maybe you saw high school classmates get drafted, sent to Vietnam. Some of them did not return home. Memorial Day is a time to forget about our complaints over military spending, noisy flyovers and the effect of the Navy presence on quality of life on Whidbey Island. It is time to reflect on the overall quality of life we enjoy in the United States because of those who served — and are serving — in the military. That’s our military, your military. No, we don’t own the military. We owe the military. Whatever your point of view of the military, whether you are a hawk or dove, veteran or conscientious objector, it should not detract from the honor due those who died serving our country. For those who made it possible for each of us to worship as they choose and say what they please in this newspaper and elsewhere, let us all collectively say, “Thank you. We are forever grateful.”

Letters to the editor Responses

Apologize for gay slur in headline Editor, I moved from Coupeville last year but still enjoy reading the news about North Whidbey online. Today, I was deeply disappointed that you published a letter from a Mr. Jones in Bremerton that includes a slur against gays. Worse, you featured the slur in your headline for the letter. If this had been a racial slur, I doubt you would have included the letter in the paper. And I’m quite sure you would not have chosen to feature the slur in the headline. While I am not gay, I have many friends on the island, including North Whidbey and elsewhere, who are. I

think you owe them an apology. At the very least, you and your staff need to smarten up about today’s world and refrain from drawing attention to such a rude slur by including it in a headline. The quotation marks did not lessen the sting. Molly Cook Bellevue

‘Benghazi’ letter rife with fiction Editor, I object to Robert D. Brown’s fiction regarding “Obama’s failure on display with Benghazi” letter to the editor. First, the letter had nothing to do with Benghazi, but it’s so much fun to say I can see why the editor put it in the title. It piqued my interest that the president was quoted as saying “We should not

be too fast in judging the accused.” Although it’s a reasonable statement since the accused hadn’t been tried, it didn’t pass the smell test. He didn’t say it. I checked the speech’s transcript. He did however say, “Justice awaits the killer.” Continuing my Fort Hood education, I learned the president first commented on the shooting on Nov. 5, two days before it happened. That can’t be right, but it is. It didn’t happen Nov. 7 as the letter stated. Thousands of troops were lined were lined up in perfect formation as he gave his propaganda pitch. There were thousands gathered. Some were in what appeared to be an at rest formation. Many thousands of others were standing, seated in chairs or sitting on the ground. Obama spoke from a podium, without a teleprompter,

there were no troops marching in formation to review. According to GOP leader Rush Limbaugh: Obama’s Fort Hood Memorial speech was “empty” and “meaningless.” Chuck Todd saw things differently saying, “That’s going to be a speech that’s remembered and quoted from for quite some time; struck a balance of commander and consoler; not easy.” I guess what you think about his speech has to do with perspective. Haters hear “blah, blah, blah, propaganda.” Reasonable people hear something else. The speech is easily viewed online. The president postponed his Asian trip to speak at the eulogy five days after the shootings. I try to tune out the garbage and not respond hopSee MORE Letters, A7

ing most people will also filter out the cranks. There are too many fictions in this one to ignore. Did any Obama haters notice the congressional GOP faked Benghazi emails? Another non-scandal brought to you by the conservative noise machine. As Michelle Bachman replied while running away from a reporter

questioning her about Obama fabrications in her CPAC speech, “… Benghazi!” I wish Obama haters luck with their newest IRS non-scandal and may they have a Benghazi day. Walt Mistler Oak Harbor

Did the ostrich or the egg come first Editor, In response to Bob Wilbur’s let-

Page A7

ter to the editor concerning the jet noise abuse in Central Paradise, I think he has reached a logical conclusion that is beyond reproach. He said the Citizens of the Reserve has never indicated an interest in closing Whidbey Island Naval Air Station, just moving Outlying Field in Coupeville. This is a statement I believe everyone can reach a logical conclusion to which came first — the egg or the ostrich? Taking Bob Wilbur’s logical

conclusion, it is OK if the air station remains and jets fly over Oak Harbor and other locations just as long as they do not fly near Central Paradise. The second logical conclusion is that “it,” OLF Coupeville, drifted into the health and safety area and that the surrounding neighborhoods and ballfields were (there) first is a reasonable argument — if it was a duck that did not quack, walk and act like a duck. Bob Wilbur, I believe, is saying

it’s OK to have jets just not in his personal space. I also agree with Bob Wilbur in recognizing there will always be ostriches, but the disagreement would be who the ostriches are. Are they the ones who built near a runway and now complain, or the ones who are all for any type of activity that they disagree with, just as long as it is not in their Central Paradise?

Mary Helen Black

Born on August 8,, 1926 and went on ahead (as she would say) on May 14, 2013 after a brief illness. Mary was an avid spinner, weaver, and fiber artist. Long time member of the Seattle Weavers’ Guild, Loom & Shuttle Guild (CA), Whidbey Weavers’ Guild, Seaview Weavers’ Guild, Unorganized Stitchers (US Group), and the Northwest Regional Spinners’ Assn, Region 2010. She was on the board of the Handweavers’ Guild of America and Chairwoman of their San Francisco Convergence in 1974. She learned to spin in Pennsylvania when she bought her first wheel in 1962. She often demonstrated spinning and weaving at county fairs and in classrooms. She loved sharing her knowledge and taught many, many men and women to spin and weave. She spun every fiber from dog hair to angora from a rabbit that sat on her lap. Mom loved creating Temari balls, macramé and kumihimo braids, but her absolute passion was her family and her animals: Tinker, Placido, Honey & the Parakeet. A generous

spirit, she was a devoted mother, grandmother, and great-grandmother. She lost her beloved husband, Grant, in 1991. We take comfort knowing they are together. She is survived by her two daughters Beth Black, Patty Hawley (Mark) and their three children, Grant, Alex and Rebecca. Son Jim Black (Linda) and their two children.

Leete takes 9th in state golf Oak Harbor High School’s Annie Leete, bouyed by a strong first round, secured

a top-10 finish at the 3A girls state golf tournament at the Lewis River Golf Course

in Woodland Tuesday and Wednesday. Leete was in sixth after a day-one score of 79. The second round was played in nasty weather, and Leete posted a 91 for a total of 170, finishing ninth out of 80. Teammate Bree Roderos shot a 100 in the first round, failing to make the cut, and finished in 52nd. Chloe Bartek of Columbia River won with a 143 (70-73). Leete finished 23rd in last spring’s state tournament.

Leete’s ninth is the best finish for an Oak Harbor girl since Lisa Wasinger’s eighth in 1996. Coach Andy Wesley said, “The elements in her (Leete’s) second round were brutal. Bree played very well for her first visit to the state tournament.” Mac Kerfoot of the Oak Harbor’s boys team was 46th out of 80 at Ridgefield’s Tri-Mountain Golf course. He shot an 83 and missed the cut by two strokes.

Life’s new chapter Oak Harbor man embarks on new adventure — writing novels

It’s important in life to keep mind open to changing plans FAITHFUL LIVING By JOAN BAY KLOPE Much of the pain in life comes from having a life plan that you’ve fallen in love with.


When it doesn’t work out, you become angry that now you have to pursue a new life plan. -- Author Unknown

Staff reporter

Bill Storey likes to say that life doesn’t end at age 50. In a way, it just begins. Storey is 83, long retired from military service and freelance journalism, and is enjoying a new chapter in his life in Oak Harbor as a novelist. He recently self-published his first book titled “Misty Fyord is Missing,” a tale of mystery and romance based in one of his favorite longtime vacation spots in the Florida Everglades. He’s planning to write another novel set in Anacortes, Oak Harbor and Alaska. His writing reflects his own life encounters and knowledge gained through life as an officer in the Army, three tours in Vietnam and during his many vacations mingling with locals at Everglades City. He spent two decades as a freelance journalist, writing travel and technical pieces about outdoor recreation, often related to recreation vehicles. He wanted to put his pen to something new. “This is my first fiction novel,” Storey said. “I did nonfiction.” Storey’s book is about cigarette and counterfeit money smuggling and hijacked yachts. It falls under the genres of mystery, romance and amateur sleuth. Much of the story is based on knowledge he gained from his annual month-long vacations to Everglades City. “I’m not trying to make money on it,” Storey said. “It’s a story I felt needed to be told about mid-life people. You don’t die at 50. You have a life. You have romance. You have adventure.” Storey is experiencing a new life himself since meeting his wife, Luci, after relocating to Whidbey Island. Both were widowers when they met. They got married in 2006. Storey had spent “a tough eight years” living alone after his wife of 48 years and col-

One of my favorite birds is the black-capped Chickadee. This small, North American songbird is easily identified by its black cap and bib, with white sides to the face. Its underparts are white with rusty brown on the flanks. Its back is gray and its tail is usually slategray. The males and females look much the same and vary in size only slightly. It is notable for its capacity to lower its body temperature during cold winter nights, its good spatial memory to relocate the caches where it stores food, and its boldness near humans (they can feed from the hand). Surrounded by trees and vegetation they prefer, these little songbirds grace our home with their presence year round. And while I have yet to sit down long enough to encourage hand feeding, I keep our bird feeders supplied with food so they will fly about our porch daily. This year I’ve named one of our regulars Stubborn Sammy. Forced into a lineup, I honestly couldn’t pick him out of the crowd. It’s not his looks that identify him; it’s his behavior. He’s not your average little Chickadee. For one, he wants inside the house. For weeks now he hits the outside of our windows, trying with all his might to get inside. Sitting on a clothes line, eyeing his projectory, he heads in and batters the windows using his tiny feet first, then flapping his wings with surprising force against the panes. He’s also oddly interested in us and seems well acquainted with our movements about the house. If we’re upstairs he aims high. If he sees me working in my first floor office, he’s rapping on the window behind my desk. Evidence of his tenacity can be seen on particular panes, and this weekend I’ve got to do a little window washing. But sparkling clean windows concern me as well. If he sees himself he may think it’s another bird who has successfully accessed our home. This may inflame a passion that could injure him. It occurs to me that Stubborn Sammy is like a whole lot of us, at times. We devise a life plan and move forward head first. But occasionally, and try as we might, we hit a wall instead. We hit opposition. We can’t find a way to move forward with our plan and our hope for happiness is replaced with feelings of disappointment, anger, frustration, hurt, and depression. If we’re not careful, we can waste a lot of time and energy when we could decide to open our minds and our hearts to new plans, new people, new lessons, new hopes. Let’s give God an open door to our hearts so He might introduce another plan, devised so we will experience an even happier life. Let’s attach ourselves not to one particular plan, but the hope for plans that draw us in and engage the best of ourselves.

He belongs to romance and mystery writer associations. He likes weaving a tale around mystery, romance and action. He said his book is intended for a mature audience. “No four-letter words,” he said. His next book also is about illegal trade. It will be

titled “Alaskan White Gold,” based on the illegal ivory trade industry. He used to be stationed in Alaska and vacationed there. He’s listened to many stories over the years and was intrigued by the subject. “It’s big business in Alaska,” he said. “A lot of people don’t know this.” n Reach Whidbey NewsTimes staff reporter Ron Newberry at 360-675-6611 (ext. 5070) or rnewberry@

of those who served


n a community with such close ties to the military as Oak Harbor, Memorial Day takes on even greater meaning. While in some places, this extended holiday weekend may conjer up images of outdoor fun and relaxation, in a military community such as Oak Harbor thoughts never wander far from the past and on those who’ve made the ultimate sacrifice for this country. On North Whidbey Island, home of Whidbey Island Naval Air Station, there are reminders in the sky, land and sea of those who serve in the military presently and in the past. On this Memorial Day weekend, a time of remembrance for those who lost their lives during military service, there will be a parade in Coupeville Saturday, ceremonies across the island Monday and special places to stop and reflect at any time. Among the places to reflect is Veterans Memorial Park, near the Maui Gate entrance of the Seaplane Base in Oak

Harbor. The memorial is dedicated to all Navy personnel who served in Navy patrol squadrons based at NAS Whidbey Island and to the Whidbey airmen who lost their lives in VP operations. At the site, there also is a bench that honors Staff Sgt. Juan Miguel Ridout, an Oak Harbor High School graduate and Army Special Forces member who lost his life in a helicopter crash during a counter terrorism operation in 2002. Another memorial on North Whidbey is the only one located on the base itself. Prowler Memorial Park honors EA-6B air crews and maintenance personnel who lost their lives. There are markers with 52 names of aviators who died while serving their country. There are plans this summer to add the names of the three Whidbey-based aviators from VAQ-129 who lost their lives while crashing during training exercises near Spokane in March. Memorial Day is about pausing and taking time to reflect
