Question quashes Island County prayer proposal By JESSIE STENSLAND Staff reporter Meetings of the Island County commissioners will not begin with a prayer. At least not anytime soon. Commissioner Kelly Emerson, the board chairperson, proposed instituting a prayer at the beginning of board meetings. She said it was an issue she had been thinking about for months, even before a prayer policy turned into a political minefield for the Oak Harbor City Council. Emerson asked her fellow commissioners to discuss the idea during Wednesday’s work session. A lone cameraman from a TV news station videotaped the meeting. Commissioner Jill Johnson previously said she was in favor of the meeting prayer, which made it appear the proposal would be passed 2-1 by the three-member board. But Johnson changed her mind. Wednesday, she said she prays to Jesus Christ and realized she wasn’t willing to sit through a prayer to another god or a “watered down god.” Johnson said she had been an advocate for prayer at government meetings and felt that it’s important for elected officials to be reminded that their decisions are about something bigger than themselves. Then she reconsidered. “I had a very strong opinion about doing it,” she said, “and then began to try on what that meant. And what that meant was in government when you say someone can pray you’re saying they can pray to their god and their god could be Allah, their god could be a priestess, their god could be Mother Earth. And I began to realize what that would mean for me sitting up there hearing someone pray to a god that’s not my god and it is something I am unwilling to compromise on.” Johnson said she also thought about what it would be like for people in the audience to have to sit through a prayer to her god or SEE PRAYER, A6
Life’s a breeze among the trees By BEN WATANABE Staff reporter The smell of cedar in the treehouse is a prominent sensory appeal of Whidbey Wellness in the Woods. The woody, sweet scent fills the lofted treehouse cabin 13 feet above the needle-covered ground. As wind rushes through the verdant canopy and swirls around the treehouse, it almost sings. Not like co-owner/operator Ken Berry sings, but almost. Having people discover and rent his and wife Lynn Berry’s vacation house is a sweet song to them, and one that persists. They met not long ago through music at Trinity Lutheran Church and their relationship bonded and strengthened over music and eventually became a marriage, and that marriage created a 33.5-foot long treehouse rental just off Lancaster and Wahl roads in Freeland. After one of her first visits to Ken’s home, located on the same property as the treehouse, Lynn said she was revitalized by the forest surrounding his house. “I felt an incredible energy of healing in the woods,” Lynn said. Soon after they married, friends of Lynn’s contacted her for an extended visit. In the course of their conversation, they told her they were selling their Woodinville home and its treehouse. Sensing a tinge of providence, Lynn put her feeling for the trees and their onthe-market treehouse together. “It was a divine order,” she said. “It was unmistakable.” Its single-bed, octagonal living area (excluding the protruding queen-size bed’s extra angles) offers a place for people to rest, think and dream. And this treehouse is a sweet dream realized for the Berrys. Staying in the canopy cabin for between $95 and $120 per night affords lots of space at 250 square feet and plenty of ways to avoid cabin fever. At most, three adults can stay in the treehouse, with two on the bed and one on the hide-abed sofa. Windows on all but one wall create a near 360-degree view and when the cabin, complete with a TV, DVD player, CD/radio/iPod player, wireless internet, a hide-abed sofa and electric fireplace, is insufficient, there are woods to be walked, a grassy meadow to be

Lynn also offers massages and cooking classes. Ken, usually busy with his day job at Whidbey Telecom, leaves most of the treehouse work to Lynn. That’s not to say that Ken, even after a long day’s work, won’t entertain guests. During a recent stay, a family with two boys was treated to an impromptu archery course with Ken instructing them how to hit the targets. There’s also a sport court with a basketball hoop and a pickleball net, though those aren’t necessarily always available to the Berrys’ temporary treehouse tenants. “It’s great to have all these resources,” Lynn Berry said. Much of the materials and furnishings in the treehouse and its detached shower house are reused items. Lynn, the self-titled queen of thrift store shopping, used old roofing shingles as the pathway from the road to the treehouse stairs and to the shower house, which has a composting, SEE TREEHOUSE, A6

Six months of wine sales go to the birds The pigeon guillemot, a little seabird with flashy red feet, just benefited from wine sales of Mutiny Bay, a Bordeauxstyle blend by the Ott & Murphy Winery. The winery had a run of 315 cases and with the purchase of each bottle a dollar was donated to the Guillemot Research Group, a citizen science program under the Whidbey Audubon Society and Island County Marine Resources Committee. David Ott presented a $1,000 check representing six months of wine sale donations to the Whidbey Audubon Society at its May 9 meeting. Vintners and owners Eric Murphy, David Ott and Diane Kaufman have a history of giving back to the community.
Ott & Murphy has donated wine to such regional and local organization events as the Salmon-chanted Evening, Whidbey Camano Land Trust, Island Shakespeare Fest and League of Women Voters. The pigeon guillemot is considered an indicator species; they echo the overall health of the Salish Sea. The research group has monitored the 25 Whidbey Island pigeon guillemots since 2004, including the colonies that nest in the bluffs of Mutiny Bay, hence the name for the wine.

county considers cop tax proposal Mayor drafts operating principles By JESSIE STENSLAND Staff reporter A resolution recommending a ballot proposition for lawand-justice funding is finally on its way to Island County Board of Commissioners. Island County Law and Justice Council again voted unanimously last week to send a resolution to the commissioners. The council asks the commissioners to approve a ballot measure seeking a $2.6 million property tax increase. The council approved a resolution in April, but the members had to hammer out details before sending it along. The resolution, for example, now includes a recommendation to “sunset” the tax increase after five years. Island County Prosecutor Greg Banks, co-chairman of the council, said the members discussed the sunset provision at length before deciding it was best to bring the tax increase back to the voters. “Hopefully in five years, people will say that was money well spent,” he said. The council proposed a property-tax increase of approximately $0.21 per $1,000 of assessed valuation to raise $2.6 million a year. It would cost the owner of a $250,000 home about $52.50 extra per year in property taxes. The council wants the proposal to go to the voters in either the primary Aug. 13 or general election Nov. 12. The council is made up of a mix of law-and-justice officials, government officials and citizens. Island County Sheriff Mark Brown and Banks, the co-chairmen, signed the final-
ized resolution Thursday afternoon. The resolution outlines a list of specific impacts caused by cuts in county law-and-justice departments due to the budget shortfall since 2008. Fifteen law-and-justice positions were cut or had their hours reduced. “Due to budget-imposed layoffs since 2008, the Sheriff has eliminated proactive investigations into methamphetamine, heroin and other hard drug trafficking operations, permitting drug traffickers to distribute drugs to adults and children in rural Island County with little risk of being detected, arrested and prosecuted,” the resolution states. The resolution also states that non-violent property crimes, such as burglary and theft, are a low priority for deputies and prosecutors because of budget-imposed layoffs. The prosecutor hasn’t been able to provide training to police officers, “resulting in compromised prosecutions
due to illegally gathered evidence, and creating a financial liability for preventable civil rights violations,” the resolution sates. Brown emphasized that his office is tied with the Thurston County Sheriff’s Department for the lowest-staffed department in the state on a per capita basis. Brown said he was understaffed even before the cuts. His priority is to provide 24-hour coverage, seven days a week at all three precincts, North Whidbey, South Whidbey and Camano Island. To accomplish that, Brown wants 16 new patrol officers. Plus, he is asking for three more corrections deputies in the jail and three more detectives. He said his plan, if the measure passes, is to hire the new employees over a series of years. The commissioners will get their first chance to discuss the resolution at their June 12 meeting.
RECORD STAFF Mayor Fred McCarthy’s operating principles for Langley City Hall read a bit like a good behavior list in an elementary school. The former teacher and superintendent of South Whidbey schools presented his draft of 23 principles to the city council. At the top of the list is, “We treat everyone we meet in the city with consideration and respect.”
221-5525 www.theclyde.net Tickets $7, under 17 or over 65, $5
It’s followed by a similarly elementary rule: “We seek first to understand, then to be understood.” “This is the way we want to do business each day,” McCarthy told the council at its meeting June 3. More business-centric points exist on the list, like “we operate a lean and efficient personnel structure.”

COUPEVILLE Police arrest man for heroin A man living south of Coupeville was arrested Wednesday for possession of heroin and methamphetamine. On June 5 the Island County Sheriff’s Office HEAT team along with officers from the Washington State Department of Corrections served a search warrant at a residence off Highway 20. Detective Ed Wallace
said the resident, Scott Houston, 28, was taken into custody on a $50,000 arrest warrant for possession of heroin with intent to deliver. During a search of the residence, 1.5 pounds of tar heroin along with 5 grams of methamphetamine and $4,900 cash were located. Wallace said Houston is being held without bail on a Department of Corrections detainer and $150,000 bail for the new drug charges. The estimated street value of the heroin is in excess of $100,000.
LANGLEY City wants more say with RV park Letting the Island County Fairgrounds overseers plan a RV park without frequent, direct input from Langley planning staff is over. Mayor Fred McCarthy told city council at its meeting June 3 the planning department would involve itself more with the process henceforth. Three options exist for the types of spaces for RVs: pull-in, back-in and pull through. Langley is waiting on the fairground to receive funding to update its utilities infrastructure and possible paving or gravelling before it is fully involved
to hook up the utilities lines from its grid to the fairground lot. One of the issues with formalizing the RV spaces, at least as Langley planner Jeff Arango saw it, was that the large grass lot loses its versatility. “During the fair, I think they jam more people in this area than are designated sites,” he said. The current plan has RV sites of varying length in four rows spanning the quasi-triangular lot.

Fewer young people are smoking cigarettes in Island County, according to recently released data from the Healthy Youth Survey. In addition, Island County businesses have improved their compliance with not selling to people under the age of 18 years, decreasing non-compliance rates from 13.6 percent in 2011 to 4.2 percent in 2012. Non-compliance rates increased in Washington State in 2012 to 15.6 percent.

Keep Celebrate America alive One of South Whidbey’s traditions for the past couple of decades has been the annual funding problem that threatens Celebrate America, our Third of July fireworks show that draws thousands of viewers to Freeland Park and roads and homes surrounding Holmes Harbor. Since Matt Chambers, pastor of the South Whidbey Assembly, came up with the idea, he has spearheaded the annual fundraising effort, hitting up everyone from our largest businesses to our smallest families. After all, isn’t a day of entertainment and night of spectacular fireworks worth five bucks for the entire family? Of course it is, but the last couple of years have been tougher than usual to raise funds. Large contributors have been cutting back and smaller contributors aren’t surfacing like they once did. It’s the economy, stupid. Washington, D.C., may say it’s improving after a five-year stupor, but local businesses are still struggling, workers are worried about their jobs and artists and craftspeople are having trouble finding more buyers. All this may be true, but it’s not worth throwing away Celebrate America. Having our own fireworks show is now part of the fabric of South Whidbey society, right up there with the Maxwelton 4th of July Parade, Choochokam and Island County Fair. It simply wouldn’t be summer without it. Through the years, Celebrate America has generated lifelong memories. “Kids” now in their 30s remember past shows. As with most events, it’s most memorable when things go bad. Fireworks have been shot off in driving rain, blowing wind and from a barge bouncing on rough seas. As a result, the direction has not always been straight up. The early years saw some exciting times. The show has become more expert with practice, however, and by now one can be assured of safe, sane and beautiful fireworks bursting over Holmes Harbor as hundreds of young faces are turned up in awe. This space is as a rule not used for fundraising calls. After all, there are dozens of good causes on South Whidbey, all needing more money. But Celebrate America is one of those special events that brings the entire community together. We certainly don’t want to lose it. If you can help, call 321-221-166 or visit www. swag-online.org.

Letters Sewers not needed To the editor: In response to your recent article about Holmes Harbor beaches perhaps opening soon, you stopped just short of saying the obvious: Freeland doesn’t need a $40 million sewer to clean up the harbor after all. By identifying and cleaning up the sources of pollution in Holmes Harbor, the Island County and state health departments have saved Freeland taxpayers from infinite sewer assessments. Careful monitoring is the key to protecting the harbor. To finally be able to say the beaches are safe without the need for a $40 million is vindication for all the effort put in by Freeland property owners to stop it. The day the “closed” sign is removed from Holmes Harbor beaches, I hope to see a well publicized celebration on the beach to burn all remaining copies of the $40 million sewer plan. I’ll offer mine to be the first one on the fire. We’ll be mindful not to pollute the beach or the water. The cost of the next misguided plan resulting from the ashes of the old one could make the $40 million plan look like a walk on the beach.
Thanks to the Island County and state health department staff for their scientific expertise and diligence that may soon lead to removing the restrictions on swimming and clamming. Using a smart public awareness campaign and careful data collection is an example of tax dollars well spent and well saved.
Return stolen church items
To the editor: Your May 25 editorial had a great title: “Don’t forget to honor our vets.” Unfortunately, the list of our recent adventures in warfare forgot to mention an important event: The Vietnam War. I assumed this oversight would have been caught and a correction reflected in the next edition. To date, I have seen no such correction and no letters to the editor, and so I write. I assign no ill intent to this oversight but simply want to make sure that the service of all my brother and sister soldiers in Vietnam is not forgotten.
To the editor: This is addressed to the person or persons who broke into our Christian Science church on South Whidbey recently and removed a number of items. We sincerely believe that you are members of the Creator’s family – as we are. All individuals are known and loved by the infinite Father/Mother and have the inherent ability to think and act rightly — to express by their deeds their mutual love and respect. Some of the items you removed from our church — the portrait of our founder, our membership ledger, and a number of historical church records — have no significant monetary value, but they do mean a good deal to our members, and we would appreciate their safe return. That would be an act of kindness. These items could be left either outside our church during the week, or in a safe location identified with an anonymous telephone call to our church. The telephone number is available in any local telephone book or on the Internet. Thank you.

PRAYER CONTINUED FROM A1
any other god they may not believe in. “Knowing that I am uncomfortable in a situation where I may be asked to pray to someone else’s god or a watered down version of god or a divine entity turned my stomach,” she said. “I didn’t want to do that” to someone else. As a result, she concluded it was best to keep prayer out of the public arena. Likewise, Commissioner Helen Price Johnson said she was against prayers at meeting. She said it’s poor timing,
Kelly Emerson with the Supreme Court considering the issue. She also said it’s not allowed under the state Constitution, which states “no public money or

property shall be appropriated to or applied to any religious worship, exercise or instruction.” Price Johnson said she believes both church and state are important, but serve best when separate. She said she’s taught Sunday school at Langley United Methodist Church for more than 20 years. She said prayer is personal and not for public theatrics; she cited a couple of Bible verses in support of the idea. One of the verses is Matthew 6:5-7. “And when you pray, do not be like the hypocrites, for they love to pray standing in the synagogues and on the street corners to be seen by others. Truly I tell you, they have received their reward in full. But when you pray, go into your room, close the door and pray to your Father.” Price Johnson accused Emerson of bringing the prayer issue forward just to cause controversy. She noted that a proposed prayer policy recently caused contention in Oak Harbor. Religious leaders and others were upset
that a proposed council policy wouldn’t allow a person giving an invocation to say the name of Jesus Christ or any other deity. The city’s attorney rewrote the policy to take out any such restrictions; the council is scheduled to take up the issue later this month. Emerson cited her “naivety” and said she had no idea the prayer issue would be controversial. She said she felt opening prayers would move decision makers to reflect on the input and concerns of everyone in the community. Emerson said she will research the issue further and may bring it back at a future date. A prayer policy, if approved, would likely allow people of different religions to give the opening prayers. Some government bodies have a prayer policy which states speakers should not invoke the name of a particular deity, but some people argue such a policy violates their freedom of speech. The Supreme Court is taking up that exact issue this year.

Batting, steals land Curfman on all-conference list By BEN WATANABE Staff reporter Consider Aaron Curfman the 1-B all-Cascade Conference catcher selection. Officially, Curfman made first team all-league as a utility player and Archbishop Murphy’s Alex Galgano was the first-team catcher. The Falcon senior who spent practically every game over a four-year varsity career behind home plate laughs at the idea of classifying himself a utility player. Yet, he is a utility player in the game of life. Curfman, a 3.8 GPA student at South Whidbey High School, was a letterman in football and baseball, a metalworks artist, graphic designer, active young member at Island Church of Whidbey (formerly Langley CMA) and kind of a gearhead in the shop. When it comes to baseball, however, Aaron Curfman is a catcher, a knight of sorts for South Whidbey’s frequently win-challenged baseball team. When he suits up, it’s like putting on armor: the cleats and shinguards his greaves, the chest protector his breastplate, the facemask his helmet. “Definitely the gear,” said Curfman of what drew him to the catcher’s position as a 6 year old. “It’s my niche.
Ben Watanabe / The Record
Aaron Curfman has lots to smile about after being voted to the first team all-Cascade Conference as a utility player. “It gives you a different personality. You can be whoever the field sees you as.” Once Curfman donned the suit and stepped behind the plate, he became the Falcons’ field general. Posed between home and the pitcher’s mound, Curfman remarked he didn’t care for the view. Back behind home plate, he raised his arms toward the foul lines, showing how he watched nearly 100 games unfold. This season, he counted only four runners who stole a base on him. “It’s been a pleasure to be a catcher,” he said.

In his four-year career on the varsity team, he’s stopped wild pitches from hurlers like Craig “The Hawk” Hawkinson during his freshman season, and more recently Cameron Wildes as a junior and even teammates Colton Sterba and Brent Piehler, all of whom Curfman said could throw in the high low 80s. Hawkinson, however, had little control over his heat, so the then ninthgrade Curfman became less of a catcher and more of a backstop, blocking the wild throws with any part of his body he could.

Lennox bishop: ‘my job here on earth is to love people’ By SuSan KnicKerBocKer Contributing writer At the end of each school year, the South Whidbey Record’s “Hometown Hero” features a high school senior nominated by the schools. Lennox Bishop sits crossed legged on a couch in teacher Jennifer Gandarias’ office at South Whidbey High School. Her smile lights the windowless room. “I have learned that my job here on earth is to love people,” she says with concentrated eyes. “Everyone is beautiful. I want to acknowledge people, to accept people, to notice and celebrate people for their differences and uniqueness. I treat all like they are fighting a battle, because … well, everyone is.” She shakes her head speaking solemnly, “This world can be so harsh, really tough.” Sighing, she continues, “Some are lonely, some are never noticed, some feel unworthy, some have been so hurt, they are unable to trust. I feel passionately about loving unconditionally. I don’t have to try to give answers or try to fix a situation, or change anything, all I need to do is love.” Becky Mooring, a band member with Bishop at the Christian Life Center in Freeland, said, “My favorite thing about Lennox is that she sees people in an uncommon way. Where others see a vagrant, Lennox sees a soul in need of compassion. Where others see an urchin, Lennox sees the glimmer of hope, joy and innocence. She can see a bigger story as she tries to see others as God would.” Lennox explains, “There is power in vulnerability; there is power in our weaknesses. The world tries to tell us we need certain looks, nice cars, the right clothes, or titles and degrees to be worthy. In reality, our humanness is truly what makes us valuable.” Nora Felt, a high school senior, paraphrases a line she read that, to her, embodies

About Lennox Name: Lennox Elizabeth Bishop. Birth date: Oct. 10, 1995. Birth place: Santa Rosa, Calif. Father: Ted Bishop. Mother: Julia Bishop. Sibling: Sister Macey, age 14. School: South Whidbey High School. Years on Whidbey: 8. Hobbies: Running, playing music, singing, playing guitar, photography (a bit more than a hobby), hiking and traveling.
Personal side of Lennox What is something you wish you could do over again and ask forgiveness for? Many, many people, friends and family and situations where I let my personal desires reign over my morals and convictions. Who would you like to meet? I have to go with the cliché on this one … Jesus. I look forward to when this becomes a reality. Favorite books? “Love Does,” by Bob Goff, “A Million Miles in a Thousand Years,” by Donald Miller,
ers, creating a wonderful environment for all around her.” Lennox said she’s had the amazing opportunity to serve with big-hearted people in Nicaragua for the past seven years with Amigos for Christ. “I’ve had the privilege of working alongside people to bring clean water, sanitation, and health care to those
that have lived their entire lives without any of these basic necessities. The people of Nicaragua have taught me so much about gratitude, living in community and what is truly important in life. Once again, it’s loving each other, not the things we possess or how See HeRO, A10
and “The Shack” by William Young. What does it mean to have power? The Power of Christ, a power anyone can gain, and it’s the strongest power of all. If you knew you couldn’t fail, what would you do? I would absolutely set out to end injustices of the world, human trafficking, poverty, hunger, water crisis, life’s pain, loneliness and more. Who inspired you? Many people, my teacher Jennifer Gandarias has absolutely changed my life and inspired me by her passion for teaching and the way she lives her life outside the classroom, as well. Advice for others? Recognize this life is merely a vapor in comparison to the vastness of time, and live accordingly to your greater purpose. What do you wish wasn’t true? The harsh realities of this world, the suffering, all the pain and poverty, it can be so daunting and gruesome. What qualities do you most admire in others? Humility, transparency, confidence, acceptance, honesty, depth, inclusion, excitement for life. Two of your pet peeves? Gossip and arrogance. What questions would you like to ask people? Where do you struggle in life? What are you searching for?

what others say about Lennox bishop
would have defeated many and blossomed into a more beautiful creation in mind, body, and spirit for it. In losing her hair, she has truly had her heart and entire life refined. She refuses to see darkness in trials, but instead follows her light, Christ her savior. I have been blessed to have Lennox breathe life and love and that inner strength into my three children while babysitting them over the last year. To teach them that truly, God creates us all different and beautiful.” —Joy Holton, Lennox’s employer
“I’m always amazed when obstacles or hardships are placed in someone’s life and it only adds to the beauty of their story. This has been true for Lennox. When I think of her I’m convinced that when Jesus said, ‘You are the light of the world … let your light shine,’ Lennox said, ‘That works for me, I’m on it!’ And shine she does! Her motivation and strength comes from the one who said: ‘I am the light of the world whoever follows me will never walk in darkness, but will have the light of life.’ Lennox is a reflection of the true light … light from above, Jesus. Shine on Lennox! The world can’t live without light.” — Dick Jeffers, pastor, Christian Life Church “One word that best describes Lennox Bishop is ‘selfless!’ Always putting others above self. She has been instrumental in creating a culture of belonging at South Whidbey High School. She is an active member of a school group called Shake the Dust. This group focuses on bringing together students from all different backgrounds to create school unity and harmony. She has battled through adversity with perseverance and acceptance without complaint. She is a leader by title, action and example. She is intelligent, artistic and has a smile that lights up South Whidbey High School. She will be successful at whatever she chooses in life and no doubt will make the world a better place. She is my hero!” —John Patton, SWHS principal “When asked to say a few words about Lennox, I feel like it is like being asked to describe the molecules in the sun. You could use a lot of words, and still not understand just how amazing the sun is. I have always appreciated that when Lennox is just ‘being,’ sitting, standing, anything, you can tell that she has a humble heart. When she is in action, it is proven that she is selfless. She seriously cares about people. She doesn’t just care about the people she sees in front of her, but, about mankind, about every living person. I believe she does this because she has experienced the love of Jesus Christ. I think that she lives out her faith. She has a desire to live a true faith, one that shows that Jesus is the way. I also appreciate that she uses her talents (photography) to show others what she sees, the beauty in everything. She is able to take a photograph that allows you to see the depth of a person, not just an image. In times of adversity, and in plenty, Lennox knows why she is on this planet, to love people. She is an example for others to love as well, and through her photography, she shows why you should love others and this planet, because it all has worth, and value and purpose.” —Chad Saxton, youth leader “Lennox is a truly extraordinary young person, who exudes loving kindness, acts on her deep convictions, and inspires us all to be better people with her grace, her love, her care and her actions. She has had some extraordinary challenges and rather than react with sadness and fear, she has responded with flair and spirit, and has redefined her own radiance and light. She has the enviable gift of unflappable spirit and enthusi-

Lennox has been a leader and integral part of our high school youth program and church worship team, and serves as a keyboard player and lead vocalist. Lennox also excels in Spanish Club, Key Club, Honor Society, athletics, while focusing on her faith, family and friends. Lennox has overcome personal obstacles with faith and grace. She is an inspiration to many, including myself.” Lennox remarks every one of us has gone through life challenges, and she’s no different. “Our parents got a divorce a few years

Her inner joy that comes from her love of God and life is evident in all she does. Lennox has not only overcome some hurdles in life, she has shown others God’s love and faithfulness during these difficult times. Lennox’s friendship has been such a blessing to me. I love her dearly and am grateful for her.” —Sophia Duccini, friend “Lennox is a genuinely beautiful person. I admire how she approaches difficult times as opportunities for learning and growth. She exhibits grace in times of trial and radiates joy and positivity. There is nothing about Lennox that is not genuine and heartfelt. At SWHS, she promotes acceptance and positive interactions. This encouragement is seen in her morning announcements to the staff and students. We have also benefited from Lennox’s enthusiasm and love for spoken word poetry. She contacted Anis Magjani and orchestrated his visit to our school. This was a wonderful opportunity for our students. On a personal level, I admire Lennox’s strength, tenacity, and approach to life. She inspires me to be better.” —Jennifer Gandarias, SWHS teacher “Lennox is the kind of person we all need to meet, to see what is possible when we accept the challenges God puts in front of us as a gift. She has taken what
ago. This devastated me; I never thought this would happen to me and my sister. Since then I have learned compassion for all children of divorced parents.” She said while she was still dealing with her parents’ divorce, her hair began to fall out in clumps. She found out she had Alopecia, a rare disease where you lose all your hair on your head including eyebrows. She became very ill, lost a lot of weight and missed a lot of school. “I struggled at first with many different thoughts, wondering if anyone would want to date me, or ever marry me some day,” she said. “Finally I got my health stabilized, and was ready to go back to school. I went to each classroom with my bald head and shared with my classmates why I had no hair. I was scared because only my very close friends and family knew. Would they accept me?
“A wise person once said that if we respond in a positive way to the difficulties of life, the result will be perseverance. Perseverance leads to character which leads to hope. Lennox inspires us because she is a person of perseverance. She embraced Alopecia with grace and beauty, this experience made her better, not bitter. Lennox continues to use her artistic talents in music and photography to serve others. We count it a blessing to know, love and share life with Lennox! Keep the faith, Nox!” —Mark and Michele Lynch, family friends “Lennox is a peer tutor in my Spanish 3 class, and also lovingly teaches Spanish to the life skills class of developmentally disabled students weekly. Lennox comes to class every day with a glowing smile and a willing attitude, fully prepared to engage in the day’s activities. Her enthusiasm complements her intelligence to make her an ideal student: intellectually curious, self-motivated and diligent, creative and original. She contributes to our class discussions with a mature, perceptive point of view, and always reaches above and beyond requirements on activities and projects to create exciting, engaging products and results. Lennox loves authentically knowing the people around her, and she accomplishes that through her personal interactions as well as through the lens of her photography. I admire her compassion for others, her energy and initiative, and her constant smile that inspires those of us who are lucky enough to know her.” —Jennifer Gochanour, SWHS Spanish teacher “Lennox has that effect on people. I worked with her and a group of students to bring Houston Kraft to South Whidbey High School. His message is ‘Choose Love.’ Lennox lives this message every day. She embodies love and kindness. She has great faith and lives that faith and the teachings she believes in, in a way that we can all learn from. Lennox is the kind of person that bridges between groups and works to bring people together. She does not let adversity and challenges stop her, she grows deeper into the loving being that she is. Whenever I see her she always has a big smile a hug, and a recognition between two spirits that choose love every day. She is a gift to the world!” —Charlene Ray, practitioner and life coach
“Fortunately they did. I think it’s important to share our challenges and stories with others, bring them along with us. I am learning to accept the trials I have endured and will endure. Some days are better than others.” Lennox said looking in the mirror is at times a battle in itself, while other days she is able to celebrate what the Lord has brought her through. Also, her bald head opens opportunities. “Some people talk to me that probably wouldn’t have otherwise, thinking I look …” she laughs and adds, “edgy.” “They think I shaved my head on purpose,” she laughs, thinking of some of the encounters she’s had. “Some people are just curious and ask me questions, others presume I have cancer and talk to me about that. I learn insights and compassion through various interactions with people I never would meet if I still had hair.”
To her, South Whidbey was a special place to grow up. “I’ve had the privilege of growing up and being supported by our small and wonderful community. Everyone has been so kind, open and encouraging to me,” she said as she began to recite a few words from her favorite song, “Nothing I Hold Onto:” “I lean not on my own understanding, my life is in the hands of the maker of heaven, I give it all to you God, trusting that you’ll make something beautiful out of me.” The only thing she says she wants to hold on to is Jesus, explaining that loving God is not like going on a business trip. It’s like going on the most exciting adventure ever imagined. “Loving people is always fulfilling, it can be serious, whimsical, or ridiculously fun, each is different; what isn’t different is every one of us wants to be included and loved,” she said.

Noxious weed leader beats back the broom RECORD STAFF When Janet Stein hears people talk about the lovely yellow flowering shrubs along the roadsides these days, she knows she’s got a lot more educating to do. As the Island County noxious weed coordinator, Stein is presently at war against Scotch broom. “It may look pretty, but the negative impact it can have on the landscape is far from pretty,” she said. Although many people know that the plant is called Scotch or Scot’s broom (Cytisus scoparius), not everyone knows that the plant is classified as a noxious weed and was quarantined by the state Department of Agriculture, Stein said. “This means that it is not to be sold or planted by anyone and it should be removed when found growing on your property.” Stein warns that if left alone, Scotch broom can take over a landscape, displacing native and beneficial plants. “Standing in a patch of Scotch broom in the late summer one can hear the popping sound as the seeds are ejected like little missiles from the drying seed pods,” she said, adding that one plant can produce over 10,000 seeds per year and the seeds can stay viable in the soil for up to 50 years, sprouting when the soil is disturbed and starting a

Although the task seems daunting as one drives by the yellow fields and roadsides of Whidbey, it may be possible to at least slow and eventually stop the spread of this prolific invader. Stein wryly rules out using the Army Reserves, but cites as useful a couple of little beetles named Exapion fuscirostre and Bruchidius villosus. The adult females, which are about the size of a grain of rice, lay
Bluffs attract a crowd By CElESTE ERiCkSOn Staff reporter
This year’s Whidbey Island landslides stirred up a lot of interest in the issue, prompting a crowd of more than 100 to turn out for an informational seminar on shoreline bluffs. The seminar presented by the city of Langley was held in response to the widely publicized landslides in Ledgewood Beach on Central Whidbey and Cascade Avenue in Langley, said Jeff Arango, director of community planning. The purpose was to educate bluff property owners on a range of issues associated with landslides and inform city dwellers of the Shoreline Master Plan update adopted May 6. “We have already made changes that include stronger standards for storm water management. If you are
their eggs inside the plant’s seed pod, where the larvae hatch and consume the seeds over a period of a few weeks. “Every seed damaged by a beetle is one less future Scotch broom plant and they seem to be doing a pretty good job,” Stein said. Last summer seed pods were collected from 10 locations on Whidbey Island and Camano Island and sent to the WSU research center for examination. All sites had at least some seeds that were damaged by one or both species of beetle and
at some sites the attack rate was greater than 70 percent. Last month, additional Scotch broom beetles were released at new locations on Whidbey and monitoring will continue to see how the bugs are dispersing and what impact they make. “The use of insects for managing Scotch broom is an example of biological control,” Stein said, explaining that biological controls go through rigorous testing to ensure they won’t attack native or crop species. Just don’t look for the yellow to disappear. “The beetles will never totally eradicate the Scotch broom and will take several years to make an impact,” Stein said. “Most noxious weeds are best dealt with using an integrated pest management technique that combines mechanical, cultural, chemical, and biological controls when available. Scotch broom may be the only weed that had a tool specifically designed for helping with its mechanical removal,” she added. Called a weed wrench, it is a solid steel tool that grabs the base of the stem and by pulling down a large level arm removes the plant, root and all. Some Scotch broom plants may be too big to effectively dig or pull. In this case the plant can be cut at ground level and the stump painted with an herbicide such as triclopyr.
In areas where large infestations of Scotch broom are removed, Stein said it is important to mulch or reseed the bare ground areas to help compete with broom seedlings. “Unless it can be done numerous times, mowing is not usually an effective method of controlling Scotch broom because the plant will likely resprout and develop into a brushier more vigorous plant,” she added. As is the case with most noxious weeds, control takes multiple years and has to be a community effort. Island County has an AdoptA-Road program where individuals or organized groups can remove noxious weeds along selected sections of county road right-of-ways, similar to the roadside litter removal programs. In addition, the Island County Noxious Weed Control Board will lend out weed wrenches to individuals that want to get rid of Scotch broom on their own properties and noxious weeds can be disposed of for free at the Coupeville transfer station. “So although the insects are doing their part, they need your help,” Stein said. “Now is the time to go to work on broom, before the seeds start popping.” Contact Stein for additional information on Scotch broom or other noxious weeds at 360-678-7992 or firstname.lastname@example.org.

Menashe explained one problem in the Cascade Avenue landslide area is the limited vegetation. “There’s not enough vegetation to sup-
port the structure because we keep cutting it down. It would be fine if we just let it grow, but this is a high traffic area,” he said. Brush on the bluff has been kept trimmed in part to maintain the gorgeous view of Puget Sound and the Cascade Mountains. Major suggestions for citizens worried about protecting their homes from bluff erosion included: Avoid building too close to the bluff, maintain vegetation and manage storm water. “We had a really good turnout, we were happy to see so many people interested,” Arango said. “It’s always fun to see the turnout on these events and we had a lot of positive feedback.”
Ferry officials seemed a bit ebullient Wednesday night in Clinton, and who could blame them. After several decades of planning and dreaming, it looks like the move of the Mukilteo ferry terminal could be imminent in bureaucratic time. “Today was a huge step,” said David Moseley, chief of the Department of Transportation’s Ferry Division. The environmental impact statement was declared finished that day, and just this week Sen. Patty Murray said transfer of the old Air Force tank farm property to the Port of Everett is on schedule. The new ferry terminal will be built on the tank farm property. It’s a short distance from the present terminal, just past the Silver Cloud Inn. The present car holding area would be abandoned, with part of the land still owned by the state and part owned by a private party that leases it now for ferry use. The new terminal would be designed for overhead loading of passengers, saving considerable time, and would have more convenient commuter access to train and bus transportation. Design work could begin this summer. Some in the audience of 20 people worried about additional overnight and ferry visitor parking, which Moseley admitted
isn’t in the plan. The emphasis is on “multimodal.” But he said the city of Mukilteo someday hopes to have a parking garage, perhaps on the present ferry holding lane property. Money for the new terminal is mostly in the bag, Moseley said. While funding is still about $37 million short, a federal grant the ferry system has high hopes for could fill the gap. “We will start construction next fall, 2014,” he said, offering up a best-case scenario. If the grant is lost, it might have to wait until 2015. Dave Hoogerworth, chair of the Clinton Ferry Advisory Committee, told the crowd some good news is coming out of the present legislative session. A commuter parking lot in the Paine Field area will likely be funded. “It’s just been announced,” he said. “You’ll have to take the bus or your car to the top of the hill.” Moseley also discussed the outlook for more 144-car ferries. Nichols Brothers Boat Builders in Freeland is working on the second such ferry now. A third ferry is in a package being considered by the Legislature, he said, but that would require a controversial gas tax increase. Legislators are now in special session haggling over transportation projects, among other issues. A fourth ferry apparently isn’t in the cards for this session.
