SeE RULES, A2

“CLEARLY, THE actual 2012 noise levels are much higher than predicted in the 2005 AICUZ study, partly because of the greater number of over-flights, but primarily because of the much higher percentage of nighttime flights,” Lilly wrote. The 2005 study looked at the airfield and the associated impacts of the Navy’s transition from the EA-6B Prowler to the EA-18G See LETTER, A2

Island County Sheriff Mark Brown responds to a statement from Commissioner Helen Price Johnson about fireworks during a meeting.

Despite the pleas of a handful of residents, fireworks season in Island County will not be shortened beyond state law. The Board of Commissioners voted unanimously Monday to alter county rules for the sale and discharge of fireworks so that they align with state regulations but nothing more. “This is a good first step,” Board Chairman Kelly Emerson said. County ordinances allowed the discharge and sale of fireworks from noon on June 28 to noon on July 6. State rules have a similar schedule but it ends on July 5 and are slightly more restrictive with

the specification of allowed hours. County officials have been aware of the discrepancy for years and although a change was discussed by the board last year, the issue was tabled until 2013. Previously discussions about restricting the allowable timeframe even further were not supported by the board. The commissioner’s vote followed a public hearing in which at least six people requested the board go beyond the state standard. Many asked that the rules be restricted to just one day. Complaints were across the board, ranging from impacts to animals and pets to litter on beaches and excess noise.

Jet noise over Central Whidbey is loud enough to cause permanent hearing damage, a privately-funded acoustics study asserts. Jerry G. Lilly, president of Issaquah-based JGL Acoustics, was hired earlier this year by Citizens of the Ebey’s Reserve for a Healthy, Safe and Peaceful Environment to conduct an auditory study on jet operations at the U.S. Navy’s Outlying Field Coupeville. The study results, which were recently released to the Whidbey News-Times and the Navy, claims noise levels are not only louder than the Navy forecast in a 2005 federally required environmental assessment, but pose a potential health hazard to the community.

RULES CONTINUED FROM A1

LETTER

“immediate steps” be taken to prepare a new environmental analysis of the Growler and its operations at the airstrip.

CONTINUED FROM A1 Growler aircraft. It was a required step under the National Environmental Policy Act, or NEPA. “The maximum sound levels are well above the levels requiring hearing protection and are high enough to potentially result in permanent hearing loss.” Because of those two facts, the Navy’s 2005 study “should be revised and/or updated to more accurately reflect the potential noise impacts on the people living in the area.” The Navy did not respond to requests for comment Monday. A spokesman did ask for a list of questions but it was not returned by press time.

THE LETTER was sent to Captain Mike Nortier, commanding officer of Whidbey Island Naval Air Station, Admiral Bill Gortney, Fleet Forces Command, and Rear Admiral Markham Rich, Navy Region Northwest, U.S. Sen. Patty Murray, Sen. Maria Cantwell and Rep. Rick Larsen. Mann asked the Navy for an answer within 30 days, a deadline of July 12. As of Tuesday, June 24, the Navy had not responded. Mann’s letter alleges the Navy is obligated under NEPA and its own regulations to conduct a new study, as a “substantial change in a continuing activity” has occurred at the air field. According to the 2005 study examining the Navy’s transition from the Prowler to the Growler, flight operations at the airfield were expected to decrease by up to 20 percent, from 7,682 in 2003 to an estimated 6,120 in 2013. “With the decreases in the number of aircraft and personnel associated with replacement of the EA-6B with the EA-18G, the annual number of flight operations is projected to decrease, even though the primary types of mission training and readiness requirement for the (Growler) will remain virtually the same as for the (Prowler),” the 2005 study said.

KEN PICKARD, a member of the citizens group’s board of directors, said Lilly’s study cost about $5,000 and provides the first conclusive evidence that information in the 2005 study was inaccurate. “It said they (the Growler) would be quieter and fly less,” Pickard said. “We’ve proven that’s wrong.” “People are getting injured and they don’t even know it,” he said. According to Pickard, the anti-OLF group is hoping to avoid legal action but, if the airfield is not shut down, the noise study may serve as a cornerstone for a potential and future lawsuit. On June 11, the group’s attorney, David Mann of Seattle-based Gendler & Mann, sent high-ranking Navy officers and Island County’s congressional delegation a letter. The letter requested

MANN’S LETTER, however, maintains the reality was the exact opposite. While flight operations did drop to a low of 2,548 in 2008, they have steadily risen to a peak of 9,668 in 2012, according to information pro-

“I promised my dog who is turning 13,” said Eileen Brown, a Central Whidbey resident. “She has a bladder problem. I said, ‘I’ll talk to them about it.’” Like several others who spoke at the meeting, she questioned why the discussion was happening at all. This is a one-day holiday, she said, and the celebration should be matched. Others made simple but direct statements about noise. “I think there is enough noise in Central Whidbey,” said David Day, a Coupeville resident. While the board’s vote was unanimous, Commissioner Helen Price Johnson was in favor of tighter restrictions. She said she was initially wary of going beyond the state standard but was convinced by constituent complaints. She proposed the season be shortened to July 3 and July 4 but it was not supported by her colleagues. Price Johnson voted for the motion but said she only did so because it shortened the timeframe by one day. Island County Sheriff Mark Brown was in attendance and was quizzed by Price Johnson and Board Chairman Kelly Emerson about how the code change may affect his department. Brown said his department has been hamstrung with budget cuts and that, consequently, fireworks are a low priority call. He worried that a shorter season might create an expectancy

from the public to respond when he lacks the appropriate staff resources to do so. “I have bigger fish to fry,” the sheriff said. Price Johnson questioned Brown’s logic. “I would think it would lessen the load because there would be fewer people discharging on fewer days,” she said. She added her belief that most people will chose to follow the law whether it’s enforced or not. Commissioner Price Johnson expressed disapproval of the line of questioning. She said the sheriff had been “gracious” and was a “good sport” to provide more information to the commissioners but that this was a board-generated measure. “He’s in no way obligated to advocate or defend it,” she said. Johnson said it wasn’t his job and that “summoning the sheriff, an elected official, a peer of ours, and asking him to sit there and report like staff is moderately disrespectful.” Johnson argued she was from a “fireworks loving town” and that the county’s rural rules are a boon to tourism. That economic benefit should not be taken lightly, she said. “At this point, I’m not comfortable going beyond what the state has deemed appropriate,” she said. Although Emerson has been a consistent voice of opposition for additional restrictions, and did not support requests for a tighter schedule, she did say she was not opposed to having additional conversations in the future.

vided through a Freedom of Information Act request. “Significantly, the 2012 numbers are now 158 percent of what was predicted in the 2005 EA for 2013,” Mann wrote. “This clearly demonstrates a ‘substantial change’ in ongoing activities.” The letter also established an increase in nighttime flights, contrary to the predictions in the 2005 study. It said they would account for only 17 percent of operations in 2013 ­­— about 1,029. But again, the letter claims approximately 6,184 nighttime flights occurred in 2012. “This represents a 479 percent increase in nighttime operations from 2003 and a 600 percent increase over what the 2005 EA predicted for 2013,” Mann wrote. The letter said noise levels from Growlers practicing at the airstrip were determined by Lilly’s study to be significantly, qualitatively different and more severe than what was predicted eight years ago. Lilly’s study was conducted May 7 and involved readings at five locations, including one inside a home. Both “A-weighted” and “unweighted” or linear sound pressure levels were recorded. According to Lilly’s report, A-weighting filters out low frequency noise and is always significantly less than its linear counterpart. Another difference is that A-weighting averages readings over a full second while un-weighted uses the highest reading in one second. “Most outdoor noise criteria are based on the A-weighted sound pressure level, but some hearing damage criteria are based on the unweighted peak sound pressure level, and that is why the unweighted peak data is included in this report,” Lilly wrote. Static readings in both forms were consistently above 110 decibels, with a peak of 134.2 in un-weighted at site one — 119.2 in A-weighted. The location is described by Lilly as a “densely populated residential area” one mile south of the southern end of the runway. The lowest readings were taken inside the home, registering 101.8 decibels in un-weighted and 81.1 in A-weighted. The house is “relatively new” and located less than one mile west of the northern end of the runway. According to the Federal Aviation Administration, “unprotected exposure to loud noise (higher than 90dB) for eight

or more hours per day for several years, may cause a permanent hearing loss.” Lilly’s report does account for duration of exposure. At site one, A-weighted exposure over 80 decibels lasted 581 seconds — nearly 10 minutes — but just 11 seconds at 110 decibels or greater. For unweighted recordings at the same location, time over 100 decibels was 501 seconds and just eight seconds over 130 decibels. The complex study also examined the impact of increased nighttime operations. Lilly equated one evening flight after 10 p.m. is “exactly equal to 10 identical jet flyovers during daytime hours” due to a reduction in ambient noise and the greater impact on sleeping people. The 2005 study predicted sound levels near site one at 77 decibels for 2013. Using an average sound exposure level for each jet flyover to calculate the day/night average, Lilly calculated one daytime session and one nighttime session at 79.2 decibels. Two daytime and two nighttime sessions, however, bumped the average up to 92.6 decibels. Lilly said that is “significantly higher” than the 2005 estimates but speculated it may be because noise levels were predicted based on an annual average that included no-flight days. “Because jets do not fly every day, when you average the ‘noisy’ days with the ‘quiet’ days the (average day/ night) value becomes lower,” he wrote. According to Michael Monson, a Coupeville resident and member of the citizens group, Lilly’s study was commissioned to provide statistical evidence that would stand up to scrutiny. It was clear from the beginning, he said, that the groups claims had to be backed up with findings from a professional. “You can’t just say, ‘I took my meter out and took readings,’” Monson said. To that aim, he and Pickard believe it was money well spent. Monson says that data supports complaints from residents that there is a difference in flight frequency and noise levels. “We now have facts they can’t dispute,” Monson said. According to Pickard, the citizens group will not back down. Should the Navy not respond by the July 12 deadline, the organization’s attorneys will file a lawsuit with the U.S. District Court for the Western District of Washington. “They (the Navy) should deal with this problem,” Pickard said. “It’s not going to go away.”

Island residents struggling to find work — and keep it By JANIS REID Staff reporter

Even while unemployment numbers are falling state and countrywide, Whidbey Island residents continue their struggle to find jobs and keep them. There are a couple reasons for this, according to Christina LeClaire, an employment specialist with the state Division of Vocational Rehabilitation. LeClaire said that while new jobs are created, most are lower paying, making it difficult for skilled or higherlevel employees to find and keep work. “It has more to do with the job market right now,” LeClaire said. “A lot of people are taking jobs that are below them.” LeClaire said that when people take jobs for which they are over qualified, they are unhappy and are likely to quit, leading to a lower job retention rate. In addition, islanders face the added geographic challenge of finding work on the island. “It is far more difficult on the island (to find work),” she said. “We just don’t have the industries.” And while many North Whidbey residents may seek work off the island in nearby Skagit County, they face that county’s even higher unemployment rate, which soared to 8.2 percent in April. “Everyone is saying that the job market is up (this year), but I have a hard time seeing it until I see a full one-year cycle,” LeClaire said. Annaliese Vance-Sherman,

Unemployment rates U.S. - 7.6 % Wash. - 6.8 % Island Co. - 7.4 % Skagit Co. - 8.3 % Whatcom Co. - 6.9 % Snohomish Co. - 4.9 % King Co. - 4.4 % Jefferson Co. - 8.9 % Clallam Co. - 9.2 % Source: Washington State Employment Security Department

a regional labor specialist with the state Employment Security Department, agreed that Island County’s labor market has been in a holding pattern since falling into the recession. However, she said, “there have been some signs of a growing or at least stabilizing economy.” Since last year, Island County has seen an increase in manufacturing jobs, but a loss in information and financial services jobs, as well as retail trade jobs. The nemployment rate for Island County fell to 7.4 percent in April. But this time last year, the unemployment rate was 8.1 percent. The unemployment rate has been falling slowly, but steadily since reaching a peak level of 10.9 percent in February 2010,

Vance-Sherman said. “There are a number of challenges in the current job market,” Vance Sherman said. “The slow recovery has been reflected in longer periods of unemployment and a weakening labor market, as workers take themselves out of the competitive market, and employers are being cautious and cost conscious in their hiring decisions.” Still, LeClaire said there are some things islanders can do to increase their chances of finding a job appropriate to their skill set. First, make sure your resume is catered to the job you are applying for and make sure your skills are highlighted. Second, prepare for each telephone and in-person interview, making sure that you are sounding and appearing professional. Third, because there are fewer applicants to more complex positions, don’t be intimidated by job listings that are detailed and specific, she said. Lastly, if you do find yourself in a job that you are overqualified for, try to make the best of it, she said. This can include personalizing your space, making sure you are on time and ready to work and a team player. For more information or job placement assistance log on to fortress.wa.gov/esd/work source

An Oak Harbor home sustained about $3,000 in damages after a wood stove started a fire in an attached shop. Oak Harbor firefighters were able to quickly douse the blaze and nobody was injured.

Firefighters alert man to fire that erupted in shop By JESSIE STENSLAND Staff reporter

&

It wasn’t until firefighters showed up at his door last Thursday evening that an Oak Harbor homeowner realized his house was on fire. Oak Harbor Fire Chief Ray Merrill said the resident of a Southeast Fourth Avenue home had a wood stove burning in an attached shop all day long. The radiant heat from the exhaust pipe sparked a conflagration.

A neighbor noticed the fire on an outside wall and called 9-1-1. Merrill said the resident was surprised. “We contacted him in his front room and he didn’t even know his house was on fire,” the chief said. Merrill said firefighters made it to the house in just three minutes and were able to extinguish the blaze in about five or six minutes. Nobody was injured in

Oak Harbor woman drives wrong way, crashes on I-5 By JESSIE STENSLAND Staff reporter

An Oak Harbor woman may face a criminal charge for driving the wrong way on Interstate 5 last Friday and plowing head-on into another car, according to the Washington State Patrol. Arlys Abrahamse, 78, was driving south in a 2003 Mercury Sable and made a U-turn on the freeway just

south of Mount Vernon, according to Trooper Mark Francis. Heading north in the southbound lane, Abrahamse’s car struck a southbound 1996 Subaru Impala driven by 29-year-old Anton Hofstetter of Mount Vernon. The accident was reported at 5:27 a.m. Both Abrahamse and Hofstetter were seriously injured and transported to

Skagit Valley Hospital for treatment, according to the trooper. Both vehicles were totaled in the crash. Francis said Abrahamse may have been impaired by prescription medication. She is being investigated for possible vehicular assault, a felony charge. The Skagit County prosecutor will make any charging decision.

Coupeville Lions garage sale Saturday By Megan Hansen Examiner editor

Starting this week, Coupeville Lions are setting up what’s advertised as the “biggest and best” garage sale. It’s the club’s largest fundraiser of the year. The sale is 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. Saturday, June 29 and 9 a.m. to 1 p.m. Sunday, June 30 at Coupeville Elementary School on South Main Street. The sale is held each June.

“There are 25 sections we set up for display,” said Julian Sayres, project co-chair. While the sale only lasts a weekend, the club works on the project year-round. Members collect items including furniture, toys, Christmas items, kitchen tools, jewelry and more. Members typically fill four barns in the months leading up to the event. Historically, the sale nets the club between $30,000

to $40,000, money that is returned to the community through the Lions Club’s charitable projects. Popular items typically include tools and furniture, said Sayres. “The power tools this year are in pretty good shape,” he said. “There’s also a nice entertainment center.” The sale will also include collectibles and jewelry. Preview hours are noon to 6 p.m. Friday, June 28.

Central Whidbey Fire and Rescue firefighters assist Coupeville residents Victoria and Ricardo Reyes after their vehicle flipped over on State Highway 525 Saturday.

SUV rolls on Highway 525 By JUSTIN BURNETT Staff reporter

A Coupeville couple were involved in a rollover accident on State Highway 525 this weekend. According to Sgt. Bruce Maier with the Washington State Patrol, the accident occurred Saturday evening at about 7:30 p.m. just south of Donahey Road in Central Whidbey. Victoria and Ricardo

Reyes were northbound on Highway 525 in a 2003 GMC Envoy when the vehicle veered off the roadway and struck a mailbox. The car changed direction toward the center of the highway before spinning around and hitting the embankment, Maier said. “She apparently fell asleep,” he said. The vehicle came to rest on its roof. Emergency responders with Central

Whidbey Fire and Rescue were on scene and assisted the couple. It appeared both were transported to Whidbey General Hospital for minor injuries. According to Maier, Victoria Reyes was cited for “driving with wheels off the roadway.” No other vehicles were involved in the crash, he said. Both lanes of Highway 525 were closed for a few minutes.

Party affiliation doesn’t matter, character does publisher’s column

By Keven R. Graves

Several years ago I received a call at my office from a prominent businessman in the Yelm area. He just asked to meet privately because he wanted to run something by me. Intrigued, I said “sure,” and we set the date. We met for lunch, traded the usual pleasantries about our respective families and jobs, eventually getting to a pause in the conversation. He then told me he read my column faithfully, respected my opinions and was pondering a run for public office, specifically the Washington State Legislature. He wanted to know what I thought about him as a candidate, how he should approach candidacy and my thoughts about what makes a good elected official. He had never served in public office and wasn’t sure what to expect, or whether he would even be a viable candidate. At first, I thought, “Why is he asking me this?” I thought more about it, however, then I decided, “Why not me?” I’ve talked with many politicians throughout my newspaper career. I’ve been in some of their homes and looked many of them in the eyes and asked some tough questions. I reached my own conclusions about who was a good elected representative, who was bad, and who was essentially punching a time clock. Party affiliation doesn’t matter to me. I rarely discuss my personal political beliefs with others, saving my thoughts for my column in the newspaper. Our lunch wasn’t about politics anyway, so I shared my thoughts. I told him I believe the best leaders are those who are consistently forthright and honest about their positions on all the issues. There’s no gray area. They have the courage of their convictions. They don’t vote to please their political party. Engaged voters are savvy. They recognize honesty, integrity and character. Constituents also want their political respresentatives to be accessible. When a politician is hiding behind his handlers, or isn’t accountable to voters, it taints the well, and eventually nobody wants to drink from it. The worst politicians are those who don’t view themselves as public servants but rather elite rulers. After lunch, we shook hands and headed separate directions. A few months later he announced his candidacy. He won handily and was easily reelected to a second term of office. I think he gets it. He stands behind his beliefs publicly and in private. Whenever we had questions for an article, or I had a matter to discuss with him, he was accessible. I think he proves that good guys — and women — do have a place in public office.

It is interesting to note that the meeting room was at capacity and that the primary people allowed were Central Whidbey residents. This group of Central Whidbey resident’s main complaint was that the noise was unhealthy. And what was the solution of the majority of them? To move the operations to the air base in Oak Harbor. My wife and I live in the north end of Whidbey Island and get our fair share of Navy air traffic. We understood what we were getting into when we purchased our property in 2004. But now the solution for the Central Whidbey residents is to double or triple the air traffic in North Whidbey? It seems to me that they are only

concerned with themselves and their home values than they are the health of residents of Whidbey Island. Do they not believe children also live on the north end of Whidbey Island too? My support is for the status quo. I am dead set against having the Navy conduct all of its touch-and-go operations from the Ault Field runways. If the elected officials and Navy cave to these few people in Central Whidbey at the expense of us at the north end, I can only say that my vote will not go to any of the decision makers who allow that to happen. I will become as loud and squeaky as the Central Whidbey folks and start calling for closure of Whidbey Island Naval Air Station. I did not purchase my home with the thought that touch-and-go traffic would increase two- or threefold. Because of the selfish nature of these Central Whidbey residents, I think my dollars spent in the local economy in the future will be kept north of Coupeville. Thomas Kosloske Oak Harbor

Coupeville complainers can alleviate situation Editor, How about the people who object to the noise from the jets using the Outlying Field south of Coupeville take the initiative to alleviate the situation. Instead of making taxpayers spend several million dollars to move the Growlers to Lemoore Naval Air Station (in California), how about Ken Pickard and the others who object to the noise form a nonprofit organization like the Nature Conservatory. This organization could apply for a $300 or $400 grant from a charity like the Gates Foundation to buy property from those in the APZ who want to move to a more noise-friendly area. Their foundation could auction off the recycle rights. After everything of reuse was removed, they could let the structure that remains be used for firefighting training or police SWAT training. The property could be returned to its former natural state or other appropriate use. Carl Smith Oak Harbor

Whidbey grads continue success at college level Former Wildcats, Wolves take part in spring sports for college teams

Conference meet and ninth (11:27.59) in the West Coast Invitational in the steeplechase. Although he red-shirted this spring, Coupeville’s Hunter Hammer, a sophomore on the Everett Community College track team, competed in a few meets as an unattached athlete. One of his best efforts came at the Ralph Vernacchia meet at Western Washington University where he placed third in the discus (144-11.25) and fifth in the shot put (4201.25).

By JIM WALLER Sports editor

Former Oak Harbor and Coupeville high school sports stars continue to shine at the collegiate level. Here’s a look at how they performed this spring.

Track Coupeville’s Kyle King, after competing for Eastern Washington University in track for three seasons, transferred to the University of Oklahoma for his final year of eligibility. At the Big 12 Conference championship meet May 3-5, he placed 11th in the 10,000 (30:06.31) and 17th in the 5,000 (14:50.2). During the season he ran the 3,000 in 8:27.59, the second-best time of any Sooner. King’s sophomore brother, Tyler, runs for the University of Washington. He posted the Huskies’ top times in the 3,000 (8:15.97) and 5,000 (14:00.58) and third best in the 1,500 (3:48.17) this spring. Tyler King placed 29th in the 5,000 (15:03.54) in the Pac-12 championships May 11-12 in Los Angeles, then improved to 26th (14:30.99) at the NCAA West Preliminary Meet in Austin, Texas, May 23-25. Oak Harbor’s Shantae Young led the Washington State University women’s track team in the long jump, going 17-10, and finished with the second-best triple jump mark (38-01.5). Though primarily a jumper, the junior also clocked the seventh-best 100-meter time (12.96). Adrianna Royal, a sophomore at Sacramento State University, excelled in the 3,000-meter steeplechase this spring, including taking first place in the Sacramento State Open May 4 with a personal best 11:26.72, the eighth-best time in SSU history. The Oak Harbor graduate also ran the 1,500 for the Hornets, who won their sixth straight Big Sky Conference title this spring. Oak Harbor’s Allison

Duvenez, a sophomore at Northwest Christian University (Eugene, Ore.), continues to write her name in the Beacons’ track record book. Duvenez holds the school record in the 400 meters (1:03.12), breaking the old mark by nearly 10 seconds. She also set a new NCU 3,000-meter steeplechase mark of 12:29.24, almost a minute better than the previous record. The 400-meter hurdles, however, is where she really shines. She holds the 10 best school times in the event, including a record 1:06.33. Duvenez placed ninth in the 400 hurdles at the Cascade Collegiate Conference meet. Oak Harbor’s Matt Reith, a freshman at University of North Carolina-Pembroke, placed seventh in the 3,000 steeplechase (10:39.21) at the Peach Belt Conference championships. He also ran the 800, 1,500 and 3,000 for the Braves. Hannah Bressler, a freshman from Oak Harbor on the Willamette University (Salem, Ore.) women’s track team, ran the school’s fourthbest 3,000 steeplechase (11:27.5) and eighth-best 1,500 meters (5:01.4) this

spring. She placed fourth (11:27.5) in the Northwest

Trumbull played in 27 games for the Cardinals (7-32), hitting .224 (15-67) with a double, six runs, two walks and two RBI. She also pitched in three games (one start) for a total of six and two-thirds innings. Defensively, she recorded 16 put outs and six assists.

After minimal playing time as a freshman, Oak Harbor’s Yale Rosen, a sophomore at Washington State University, had a breakout season for the Cougar (23-32) baseball team. Rosen started the year with a home run and three hits in the first game. He went on to finish the season

tied for first on the team with seven round-trippers and second among full-time players with a .314 average. Rosen, an outfielder and designated hitter, led the Cougs in hits (66), total bases (103) and slugging percentage (.490) and was second in doubles (12), triples (2) and RBI (35). Oak Harbor’s Jay Stout, a sophomore at Skagit Valley College (23-20), recently completed his second year as a starter for the Cardinals’ baseball team. Stout, an outfielder, finished fifth in hitting (.254); led the team in walks (17), stolen bases (15) and sacrifice flies (4); was third in being hit by pitches (5) and was fifth in hits (27). Oak Harbor’s Josh Evans, a sophomore righthanded pitcher at Edmonds Community College (27-19), appeared in six games, threw five innings and recorded two strikeouts.

Hartsoch captures Deception Pass Challenge triathlon By JIM WALLER Sports editor

The weather for the Deception Pass Challenge mini-triathlon was nasty last year and gorgeous this time around (Saturday, June 22), but the result was the same, Bellingham’s Jacob Hartsoch crossed the finish line first. Oak Harbor’s Brian Loustaunau (2:00:35) recorded the best local finish, placing sixth overall out of 59 individuals. The Controllers (2:07:14) from Oak Harbor took the team title, topping nine other squads with the 15th-best overall time. The triathlon included a half-mile swim in Cranberry Lake, a 13-mile bike ride over the roads and trails of Deception Pass State Park and a four-mile run up to Goose Rock, a 484-foot climb, and back along the sands of North Beach. Hartsoch used a strong run to overtake early leader David Deschenes of Bellingham to win the race in 1:42:44.

The time was four minutes faster than his winning time last year (1:46:54) in the rain and mud. Deschenes recorded the best swim (13:14), good for a 60-second lead over Hartsoch. He then added the best bike ride and upped the lead to 1:11 heading into the run. Hartsoch’s 31:32 in the run pushed him by Deschenes (35.53), who finished in 1:46:54 and in third place. Anacortes’ Michael Feist also caught Deschenes, running the final leg in 31:48 and finishing in second in 1:43:08. Bellingham’s Susan Deschenes led the women, placing 17th overall in 2:12:35. Coupeville’s Amanda d’Almeida finished second among the women and 26th overall (2:21:26). Neil Rixe of Coupeville earned the second-best finish among local runners, placing 14th in 2:07:10. Estelle Johnson, spokesperson for the Deception Pass Park Foundation, which organized the race, said the “racers had a great time.”

She added the race had “several returning participants even though we had lots of competition from Bellingham, San Juan and Seattle triathlons.” All of the proceeds will go to the restoration of Civilian Conservation Corps buildings within the park, Johnson said.

Oak Harbor couple turns hazard into gently sloping place to relax By RON NEWBERRY Staff reporter

It wasn’t just her love for gardening that immersed Laura Medbury into a project that transformed a bare landscape into a work of beauty. It was her fear of tumbling downhill.

This birdhouse is actually part of the tree stump, carved by Bret Medbury using a chainsaw. The showcase of Bret and Laura Medbury’s backyard garden on their North Whidbey property is a white arbor wrapped in honeysuckle vines that invites one to walk down a pebble path surrounded by lush green shrubs and perennials into a lower portion of the yard. It wasn’t long ago that this section was nothing more than a grassy slope of doom

for Laura Medbury. That is, until she grabbed a pickaxe and shovel and carved new life into the landscape. “I’d never been on a riding lawnmower before I moved here,” said Laura, who came to Oak Harbor from Vernon, Conn. “Where that white arbor is, it was just a hill and I was so afraid I was going to fall. I said, ‘I’m not doing this anymore.’” The Medburys’ garden is one of six private residences on Whidbey Island featured in the Garden Tour & Tea Saturday, June 29. The 15th annual event is a major fundraiser for the Oak Harbor Garden Club. Tickets for the self-guided tour are $15 and may be purchased at the Oak Harbor and Coupeville chambers of commerce, Greenhouse Nursery, Hummingbird Nursery, Mailliard’s Landing Nursery, the Purple Bench, Bayleaf stores in Oak Harbor and Coupeville and the Wind and Tide Bookshop in Oak Harbor. The Medburys’ place is what one might call an extreme makeover. After the couple got married and Laura joined her husband in Oak Harbor in 2005, ideas started dancing in her head about what to do with the 2.5 acres of property. Newly retired with a love for gardening, she had the time and desire to spruce up a rather mundane land-

This garden bench was converted from a bed frame.

She widened the garden beds, carved a gently sloping walking path, added detailed garden art and planted Northwest-friendly trees, shrubs, flowers and ground cover that blended into the woodland landscape. “She did it all by hand,” Bret said. Bret joined in and got out the chainsaw to carve art into the top of stumps. Together, they also used cement blocks to create a lower area of their garden with a fire pit serving as a centerpiece. That is where

Laura remembers it as a frightening experience and is glad those days are over so she can now focus on maintenance and adding gardening touches. Those touches ultimately caught the eye of the Oak

Harbor Garden Club’s Dellann Blackstock, who roams north and central Whidbey Island each year looking for residential gardens to feature on the annual tour. If she sees a garden she likes, she knocks on the door and inquires. She looks for variety, and believes the 2013 tour captures that. “There is one by the beach,” Blackstock said. “There’s one with a vegetable garden, one with a water feature. I look for a lot of things so we can satisfy everyone’s desires.”

Summer Hill receives national award for quality care

Summer Hill Assisted Living of Oak Harbor has been recognized as a 2013 recipient of the “Bronze Commitment to Quality” by the American Health Care Association and National Center for Assisted Living. To receive the honor, a facility must demonstrate a dedication to improving the lives of its residents through improved quality care, according he AHCA/NNAL in a June news release. “At the core of our service delivery is our Platinum Service program which puts our residents in the center of all that we do,” said Leslie Burns, registered nurse and executive director of Summer

Hill. “Providing unparalleled service is the focus of our team efforts and my main personal role. I am committed to following and supporting our service philosophy.” Implemented by AHCA/NCAL in 1996, the National Quality Award Program is centered on the core values and criteria of the Baldrige Performance Excellence Program. The program assists providers of long-term and post-acute care services in achieving their performance excellence goals. The program has three levels: bronze, silver, and gold. Facilities begin the quality improvement process at the bronze level, where they assess ser-

vice needs and implement a performance improvement system. A team of trained examiners reviews each bronze application to determine if the facility has met the demands of the criteria. As a recipient of the “Bronze Commitment to Quality” award, Summer Hill may now move forward in developing approaches and achieving performance levels that meet the criteria required for the “Silver Achievement in Quality” award. “This award is not simply a plaque that facilities hang on the wall and forget,“ said Ed McMahon, chairman.

Assisted living volunteer honored Jim Ramler, a retired United States Air Force master sergeant, was selected by the Washington Health Care Association as Volunteer of the Year for assisted living for 2013. He was honored at the Tacoma Convention Center in May during a special luncheon and ceremony for the award winners.

Wednesday, June 26, 2013 • Whidbey News-Times

Winners are selected by a panel of judges based on skills and donated time. “I enjoy spending time with these folks,” Ramler said. “To me we are like family. It is a win-win situation, and I get way more than I give.” Jim has been volunteering at Harbor Tower Village since 2005, where he helps four days a week. He leads exercise, calls Bingo and assists with activities with the residents. In addition, Jim and friend Jean Matheny work with the Ti Me Together dance group at the Bayview Senior Center through Senior Services of Island County.
