fire and began knocking the flames down. Firefighters beat the flames within 20 minutes using 10,000 gallons of water. Assistant Chief Paul Busch said the crew spent another 40 minutes of “mop up” duty including soaking the burn area to kill any embers hiding in stumps, roots or the grass. The fire happened about 200 feet away from

Island County Commissioner Kelly Emerson is no longer chairwoman of the board. Carrying through with threats made last week, commissioners Helen Price Johnson and Jill Johnson voted to revoke Emerson’s status as chairperson during the final minutes of Wednesday’s work session. “I feel the chair has once again decided to just make her own decision and put out another special session notice,” Price Johnson said. “I don’t believe this is in the best interest of the county, to be on edge wondering what the next thing the chair will be doing.” Price Johnson moved to reconsider chairwomanship of the board and received a second from Johnson. “I am sad,” Johnson said. “We can argue the nuances of what was said and what wasn’t said for this special session, but the direction from this board was clear.” Emerson called the decision “ludicrous.” And in a later interview, she charged her fellow commissioners with fabricating an issue to justify rescinding her position as leader of the board. “I absolutely believe this was made up just to remove me as chair,” Emerson said. On Tuesday, Emerson approved a special session notice that announced the planned attendance of at least two board members at a community meeting Wednesday evening in Freeland. The notice was signed and approved by Emerson, a District 1 Republican. It

burn ignites bayview property By BEN WATANABE Staff reporter Four days ago, a pile of wood and brush was set fire on Ray Gabelein Jr.’s property off Bayview Road near the cemetery. Thursday morning, that burn pile sent embers to a nearby pile of creosote-soaked logs that caught fire and ignited a quarteracre of grass, logs, stumps and shrubs. A thick cloud of smoke was visible and could be

smelled at the nearby intersection with State Highway 525. “Embers have been known to stay hot for 10 days,” said H.L. “Rusty” Palmer, fire chief of South Whidbey Fire/EMS. No one was injured by the fire, and no building damage was reported. A total of 16 South Whidbey Fire/EMS personnel responded to the call, originally reported as a structure fire. When Deputy Chief Jon Beck arrived, he reclassified the

South Whidbey residents weigh in on proposed law and justice levy By CELESTE ERICKSON Staff Reporter South Whidbey residents certainly want to see more support for the sheriff, but questioned the proposed $2.6 million from property taxes. Residents contributed ideas for the proposed levy from the Island County Law and Justice Council Wednesday night. Commissioner Helen Price Johnson and Sheriff Mark Brown sought feedback

whether or not this levy should be put on the ballot and if so, what it should look like. About 30 people attended including Commissioner Kelly Emerson. The current proposal asks Island County Board of Commissioners to approve an additional property tax levy to put on the November ballot. The proposed ballot requests $0.21 per $1,000 of the assessed property value, or $52.50 for a $250,000 home to raise the $2.6 million.

Of the $2.6 million request, the sheriff’s office accounts for $2.4 million. Brown said he wanted to gauge what level of service the community wanted from his office. The proposal points out there were cuts of 15 law and justice positions since 2008 while the department still operates the same hours for the sheriff’s patrol and corrections services. The cuts impacted response times for medical first responders and firefighters and removed positions and

proactive operations. “Somehow my agency needs to grow,” Brown said, adding he would like to see two deputies per shift for all three precincts. He explained any less than two creates a long time for deputies respond to other back up calls. Community members voiced their concern over budgeting the amount over the five-year span. Some were concerned unused money used would be redirected to

other programs. “I’m not going to ask for more than I need,” Brown said. Others questioned the leave liability for deputies costing the county. Brown said the leave liability was one of the issues he is working on. Price Johnson later said that the issue was an organizational wide problem. SEE MEETING, A6

‘Tis the season of graduations on Whidbey Island. South Whidbey High School sent 118 seniors on toward young adulthood, as did South Whidbey Academy with another 11. South Whidbey Fire/EMS welcomes seven new emergency medical technicians (EMTs) to its first responder ranks. Training to be an EMT runs a wide gamut, from treating allergic reactions to broken cheek bones. South Whidbey Fire and EMS now has 56 volunteer emergency medical technicians. The recent graduates and their stations are: Dareld Chittim and Anne Collins at Maxwelton; Brent Davison at Clinton; Kelly Cammermeyer, Will Piepenbrink and Pamela Uhlig at Langley and Mark Swenson at Saratoga. “The greatest reward of serving as an EMT will be helping people and becoming involved in my community in a new way,” Cammermeyer said. Washington requires students to complete at least 150 hours of instruction and pass written and practical examinations. These requirements take three months to complete. “Our mutual response with Whidbey

Clinton market bursts with colors, flavors By GRACE SWANSON Staff reporter Vibrant colors and informational displays fill an otherwise empty parking lot. The aroma of Mexican food wafted through the air. Colorful scarves waved in the light breeze while alpacas nuzzled anyone who comes near. Music entertained the crowd as people strolled and mingled throughout the booths. Welcome to the first Clinton Thursday Market of 2013, open every Thursday from 3:30 until 7 p.m. this summer. Founded in July 2012, it was created by the Clinton Future Search to boost business and spending in Clinton. Leaders from the Future Search wanted to create a seasonal business oppor-

tunity. A weekly market fit that need. The number of booths varies each week. On opening day July 11, the market offered prepared food, fresh produce, essential oils and beauty products, flowers, information, arts and crafts and jewelry. Carol Flax, the Clinton Thursday Market manager, cited many benefits the market brings to Clinton and South Whidbey. “It brings energy to Clinton,” Flax said. “It’s somewhere for the community to go, get together, have a good time and go shopping. It helps the local businesses that are vending here. It’s good for everybody.” Organizers and vendors hope the market offers a one-stop shop for customers. Shoppers interested in beauty products can buy homemade soaps and

lotions by Carrie Peterson at the Nature’s Blessing booth. Peterson also crafts her own soaps dishes. Flower bouquets are available every Thursday at the Bao Lor Gardens flowers booth. Based out of Snohomish, Bao Lor Gardens sells at several outdoor markets each week. To find local, fresh produce, the market is the place to shop. Farmers sell fruit and vegetables, grown on Whidbey Island. Art is available in Clinton, too. Whidbey Island resident Susan Jensen sells pet portraits as well as moon snail plant holders. Adoring pet owners can email an image of their favorite pet to Jensen, who will create a caricature she said truly shows the personality of the pet. Alpacas are also a highlight of the market. When

they are not confined to their fenced area, the alpacas cruise the market, led by owner Hal Schlomann. He said his farm, Fern Ridge Alpacas in Clinton, produces alpaca yarn for socks, sweaters and other products. Whidbey restaurants are in on the Clinton action. The Tres Gringos is one option that serves Baja Mexican cuisine made with local ingredients, from tacos to tamales.

Ask our friendly staff to sign you up!

Business at the market is designed to be Whidbeycentric. One booth is dedicated to products made solely on Whidbey Island. There are hats and T-shirts with “Whidbey Island” displayed on them. There are also pretzels made by Joanie Garboe, called Joanie G’s Gourmet Pretzels. Weekly entertainment adds to the ambience of outdoor bazaar. During opening day, the Tim

Leonard’s bid was submitted at $478,893.77. In addition to being the only bidder, he touted his company’s South Whidbey ties. The commissioners liked the company’s potential and its workers’ experience enough to award the grant in April. Two payments were made to North Cross for the 32-foot long, 12-foot wide boat.

A bad carburetor led to a car fire on Bayview Road this weekend. An old Volkswagen Beetle caught fire after its engine ignited just west of Andreason Road. Flames engulfed the tiny car after the driver and passenger exited the vehicle. Firefighters with South Whidbey Fire/EMS let the car burn itself out and diverted traffic on Bayview Road. Deputy Chief Jon Beck said the driver told him she heard a loud pop from the car’s rear where the engine is held. She pulled over and saw smoke.

It was a hard vote, but a necessary one

In response

Island County commissioners Jill Johnson and Helen Price Johnson had no option but to strip Kelly Emerson of her role as board chairwoman this week. Undoubtedly, it was a difficult vote for Emerson’s fellow commissioners to cast, but it was the right one. When she was named chairwoman of the Board of Island County Commissioners, Emerson wasn’t directed on what to say or how to vote. Her voice was not silenced. However, after a decision was made by the board, whether she agreed with it or not, Emerson’s responsibility was to implement that decision and abide by it. Instead, she opted to go rogue. A week ago, Emerson issued a notice saying she would attend a public meeting to discuss a possible law and justice levy measure for November’s ballot. The meeting was being held in the district Jill Johnson represents, Oak Harbor. Prior to Emerson issuing that notice, Johnson, a Republican, and Price Johnson, a Democrat, said they made it clear that each commissioner would attend the law and justice meetings planned in their respective districts. Emerson, a Republican who represents Camano Island, maintained that wasn’t her understanding. Johnson, who backed out of attending the Oak Harbor meeting, issued a warning to Emerson — do it again and her vote, which put Emerson in the chair position, would be rescinded. This week, Emerson did it again. She issued a similar notice and attended the law and justice meeting planned for Freeland, the district represented by Price Johnson. Johnson and Price Johnson followed through with their warning and voted to remove Emerson as chair. The commissioners must now put this debacle behind them and move on with the business of Island County. Their responsibilities are great and work load huge, there is no time for any more of these distractions. We don’t want to see any more unnecessary “rogue” moments to hamper their efforts.

Editorial earns a bogey Editor, I found your recent editorial opposing the South Whidbey Parks and Recreation District operating the Holmes Harbor Golf Course narrow minded and rife with anti-golfer sentiment. In addition, you said that operating the golf course isn’t worth pursuing because this “is too focused toward a single interest group” The logic behind this statement escapes me. Following this line of thinking to its logical conclusion would mean, it seems to me, that the South Whidbey Parks and Recreation District shouldn’t operate tennis courts, boat launches or ball fields either because they all focus on a “single interest group.” You said that golfers with money should join Useless Bay Country Club and those without should play at Island Greens, the Gallery or go to the mainland. Following your reasoning, tennis players, another “single interest group,” with money should join Useless Bay Country Club and use their courts or drive to Oak Harbor or find courts on the mainland. The same would have to be true for other “single interest” groups such as boaters, ball players and Frisbee flingers. We shouldn’t have our tax dollars supporting any “single interest group.” I don’t own a boat, I no longer play tennis and only rarely do I use our parks. However, I happily pay taxes so that our county parks and recreation district can provide recreational facilities for Island County residents. To single out one group, such as golfers, and state that the South Whidbey Parks and Recreation District shouldn’t support them is narrow minded and prejudiced. Linda RusseLL Freeland

Outlying field

Navy needs to listen Editor, Whidbey Island has changed a great deal since 1943 when the Outlying Landing Field was built. In 1950, Island County had about 11,000 residents. In 2010 the county had 78,506 residents. A significant number of those new residents made their homes around the OLF Coupeville, and I’m one of them. I’ve lived here for 20 years.

Over the past two years my ears have started to ring constantly. It’s time the Navy recognizes that the community around OLF Coupeville deserves to have some input on how and when the facility is used. At a bare minimum, the Navy should observe the same restrictions that Island County puts on home builders limiting building construction noises between 7 a.m. and 10 p.m. I don’t think wanting to sleep is asking a lot. The Navy needs to become a better neighbor than it has been to Central Whidbey in the 20 years I’ve lived here. eRic TRembLay coupeville

Service has its challenges Editor, This Independence Day I was thinking about the complaints about aircraft noise at the Navy’s Outlying Field Coupeville and at Ault Field on North Whidbey. Military duty involves managing authority with responsibility. I’m thinking in a very broad sense of the people who volunteer to serve in our military and, for the most part, do a very credible job. Conditions vary, but there is always the recognition that this is a very different line of work that is poorly understood by the majority of people being served and who are paying for your work. As military individuals advance in seniority there is increasing authority and responsibility restrained by rules intended to keep everyone under control. Uniformity of behavior is desired and expected, but understood to be very difficult to attain. “Family life” is an active contradiction of words in many ways. Participation in

civil government is highly regulated and discouraged or prohibited. Civil authority controls your profession and your life. Lots of anniversaries and PTA meetings are missed. You realize things at home aren’t easy while you are deployed. Delegation of authority and responsibility is encouraged in the military at all levels, but always at peril to the senior who has delegated because responsibility always rests with the senior person. Military service is done with masses of very young people in their physical prime but at some distance from full maturity and “wisdom.” Their strength, skill and obedience are essential to accomplish each mission. They are individually and collectively similar to a race horse that has been prepared to perform in an explosion of energy when released, but are infrequently released in a real race. When the race is real it is deadly serious. You have authority over them and responsibility for them and their performance during training and in war. Top this off with doing your own job, which is very annoying to some of the people you work for. You may be subject to exceptional punishment for smoking, drinking, and allowing your youthful sexual energy to follow natural courses that are prohibited in the military. I often wonder, “What did they think would happen?” That’s what I’ve been thinking about when I listen to complaints about noise coming from aircraft practicing to protect us, and while celebrating the Fourth of July.

Price Johnson expressed her concern over the “sunset” length, or the five-year expiration period when the levy would revert to preelection levels unless authorized by a vote. “I have concerns about it being an odd number of years because it will end up being on a campaign election partisan year,” she said. “It’s nice if we can have these discussions when we are not focused on party politics.” Langley resident Jim Adsley attended the meeting and said he agrees the sheriff is in need of funding, but questioned the means of that funding. He would like to see the funding come from sales tax because the sheriff’s office

n Isla

is busier during holidays and tourist season. “I think the public would support more funding for public safety, but I’m not sure they’ll do it with property,” Adsley said. Price Johnson said an increase in sales tax would not generate enough. And if only part of the sheriff’s budget were from sales tax, it would require two separate ballots. “I think he is right on the need, but where the money comes from is another issue. Every level of government is asking for more money,” Adsley said. “We are going to continue to struggle incrementally to meet the needs in other departments,” Price Johnson said. “But with this levy, at least the law and justice programs would have a dedicated source of funding.”

a hay barn on the property, which was not affected by the flames. Flames spread on the grass to the gravel driveway and up the hill, charring the trunks of several trees and burning a few stumps and old, fallen trees. No living trees were toppled in the course of the fire or clean up. Gabelein responded about 30 minutes after the initial call and used his backhoe to grab loose brush and expose root systems for the firefighters to douse. “Actually, it burned out some brambles and blackberries, so it will be nice and lush next summer,” Palmer said. The burn pile was started July 8, two days before Island County began a burn ban. There is no end date in place for the ban to be lifted. Stretches of dry weather turns once lush grass and vegetation on the island into easily combustible “flash” fuels. Enough dry

grass together can mean a quick-burning, but far reaching fire on Whidbey, however. “Based on my history, it’s not real dry here usually,” Palmer said. “We have so much undergrowth that cures and dies every year though. “If you look at lawns here, they’re all brown.” Higher temperatures and steady wind can keep embers burning from the burn piles and other fires, even legal ones during the county’s burn ban. Palmer recommended people check the condition of the area around approved fires, such as those in metal or concrete lined fire pits. Wood fire creates embers that can pop out of contained fire pits and onto dry grass or other materials that can ignite. It is also important for people making a fire to have a way to extinguish it, even if it’s just a bucket of water. A fire is truly extinguished, Palmer said, when someone can touch the wood or ashes.

comes just one week after she was publicly chastised by her colleagues for approving a similar notice for a meeting in Oak Harbor. Johnson, a District 2 Republican, and Commissioner Helen Price Johnson, a District 1 Democrat, accused Emerson with taking action contrary to an earlier consensus of the board. Johnson and Price Johnson claim verbal agreement was reached during a June 12 work session that a series of meetings on the levy proposal would be held in each commissioner district and attended by the area’s commissioner. The idea was to avoid any possibility of legal problems that might arise from an attending quorum that may later complicate or hinder the levy effort. Johnson even threatened Emerson, saying she would support a vote to revoke her position as chairwoman if she ever again took action against the majority’s wishes. Despite the warning, Emerson said she approved the notice because she planned to attend the meet-

ing, which she did. She claimed there is nothing unusual or illegal about the board meeting in a special session. “Baloney, we’ve been doing it on Camano for years,” said Emerson, adding that she believes it is common practice in other counties as well. When confronted during Wednesday’s afternoon work session, Emerson defended her decision to release the second special session notice. She said her actions were appropriate and, as she saw it, actually in line with majority wishes of the board. Emerson explained she didn’t believe a special session notice was required but released one anyway only because she believed her colleagues on the board would want to play it safe. Price Johnson and Johnson disagreed and voted, 2-1 with Emerson opposing, to revoke Emerson’s chairwoman status. Price Johnson subsequently made a motion to name Johnson as chairwoman for the remainder of the year. Emerson refused to conduct the vote. “I’m not chair anymore,” Emerson said. Johnson called for a vote, which passed 2-0. Emerson abstained from voting.

Justin Burnett / The Record

Rimas Meleshyus, who fled Russia in 1988, plans to make history this month by setting off from Oak Harbor on a circumnavigation in a San Juan 24.

Man plans 10-month voyage from Oak Harbor By JUSTIN BURNETT Staff reporter Some call him courageous. Some say he’s nuts. Others may think he’s a bit of both. Whatever your opinion of Rimas Meleshyus, he will sail out of Oak Harbor this month and into history. Which is exactly what he wants. “I want to be famous, I want to be in books,” Meleshyus said. “And I want to do it under American flag.” The 61-year-old, Russian-born U.S citizen is planning to circumnavigate the globe in a 24-foot sailboat he recently purchased from the Oak Harbor Youth Sailing Club for the bargain price of $500.

He plans to set sail in July and travel nonstop — a 10-month passage — to the southern tip of South America, also known as Cape Horn. Famous for its rough weather, large waves and icebergs, it’s also known as a sailor’s graveyard. If successful, Meleshyus will be the first person known to make the crossing, much less complete a full circumnavigation, in a San Juan 24 — a light-weight weekend sailer designed for racing on inland waters, such as Puget Sound. While he said he is hoping the feat will earn him a place in the Guinness Book of World Records, Meleshyus has already developed something of a name for himself, particularly in the sailing community. He made headlines in newspapers across the West Coast last year when his first ocean passage, a 34-day journey across the Gulf of Alaska, came to an end on a small island 50 miles east of Dutch Harbor. Meleshyus ran aground and spent nine days marooned on the remote Alaska island before being rescued by the U.S. Coast Guard. That trip was also made on a San Juan 24. According to Meleshyus, the trip may have ended poorly but the tiny vessel held its own, surviving gales, close encounters with ships and at least three knock downs — instances when the mast touches the water due to the vessel being hit by waves or strong winds.

Saturday, July 13, 2013 • The South Whidbey Record

Meleshyus even claims his boat was hit by a gray whale. Weighing up to 36 tons, the massive mammal stuck the boat so hard that he was ejected from the cockpit. “If not for safety harness, I would be dead,” Meleshyus said. Born in Sochi on the shores of the Black Sea, Meleshyus “escaped” the Soviet Union in 1988 when he claimed political asylum at the U.S. Embassy in Moscow. “Communism has no freedom, that is why I left for America,” he said. Fleeing to New York, he took jobs as a waiter in Russianspeaking restaurants before making his way to Hawaii, where he worked as a guide for Japanese tour companies. He is fluent in Japanese, and can read and write Kanji. From there he spent years in San Francisco, which he calls “the most beautiful city in the world.” His life changed last year, however, when he and his girlfriend lost their jobs. She went back to Japan. He looked for a new adventure, finding it in Juneau, Alaska in the form of a “for sale” ad for a used 1973 San Juan 24 sailboat. Despite having no previous sailing experience, he negotiated the price from $4,600 to $1,200 and prepared to sail around the world. Fishermen, fellow sailors, just about everyone he talked to said he couldn’t do it, but Meleshyus refused to listen. After a few test sails he embarked on his ill-fated 34-day voyage. Now he’s preparing to set out again. “My dream is to sail around the world,” Meleshyus said. “Why can’t I do it. Other people are doing it. I can do it too.” His plans are the talk of the Oak Harbor sailing community, earning high-fives from some and head shaking from others. Cape Horn is “infamous,” and doing the trip in a small, old boat is a risky venture, said Byron Skubi, chairman of the dsl Oak Harbor Youth Sailing program. “I wish him luck. I hope he can survive it,” Skubi said. One problem is a San Juan 24 may lack the space or buoyancy to safely store enough food and water for a 10-month passage. The boat is also not designed for blue-water cruising. Another concern is a lack of equipment. Due to expense, Meleshyus plans to make the voyage without self-steering gear. He said he’ll manually lash down the tiller and wake up every 15 minutes at night. Jason Joiner, an avid racer who owns and restored his own San Juan 24, said they are well built and stout little sailboats, but Meleshyus might be expecting too much from his. While he doesn’t want to discourage someone from pursuing their dream, Joiner said setting off on a nonstop, 10-month voyage without the necessary gear is dangerous. And despite the those who say it’s too dangerous and that he needs to prepare more, Meleshyus is resolute. “The plan will be my second attempt to solo around the world,” Meleshyus said. “I was the first person to make a successful crossing in the history of the Gulf of Alaska in a San Juan 24 sailboat.” “No matter what people think, crazy or not, I’m doing it,” he said.

Too much of too many good things? good things. Strawberries, raspberries, blueberries, cherries, peaches, fresh corn on the cob, green beans, lettuces, chard, spinach, artichokes, green peas … well, I don’t need to go on and on; you know what I mean. And, to add to the inundation of delights, it’s also Dungeness crab season, and there is no better seafood in the world, in my estimation. Throw in a geoduck or two, and/or a bucket of steamer clams and seafood surplus is surpassed only by fresh fruit overload. No complaints, however; coming up with as many ways to enjoy it all while it’s with us presents a pleasant

peaches. Gently combine them with ½ cup sugar and 1/3 cup peach schnapps and fresh lemon juice. Let stand at least 15 min. and up to 1 hr., stirring occasionally. 8. Using a heated knife, cut around the cake to loosen; remove pan sides. Arrange the remaining 3 containers of raspberries on top of the cake; cut into wedges to serve, with compote to spoon over as desired, or you can spread the compote on the top of the cake then arrange the raspberries on top. Serves 12 This next recipe was given to me by a fellow tap dancer friend many years ago. It’s quick, very easy, delicious and virtually any fresh fruit or combination of fruits can be used. I made this with our fresh strawberries, because I had plenty of both that needed to be used; it disappeared in minutes. Equally tasty with fresh peaches or nectarines.

QUICK & EASY FRUIT COBBLER ¼ cup butter ¾ cup milk 1 cup flour 1 cup sugar 1½ t. baking soda

Trusted Brands At LINDs we carry many wonderful brands to meet your needs. Here are just a few…


2 cups fresh fruit (berries, cherries, peaches, or combos of) ¼ to ½ cup sugar, depending upon tartness of fruit 1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Put butter in an 8x11 baking dish or pan; place dish in oven to melt butter. Don’t forget it and burn the butter! 2. Mix together the milk, sugar, flour and baking soda; pour this over the melted butter. DO NOT STIR. Put fruit over the batter in the pan (DO NOT STIR), and sprinkle sugar over the fruit, using less with sweet fruit, more if the fruit is very tart (sour cherries, as an example). Bake 30-40 min., until batter puffs around fruit and is golden. Serve warm,

with a dollop of ice cream or whipped cream. Serves 8-10; increase batter/fruits amounts if you want to make this in a larger baking dish. If you’re fortunate enough to have crab left over after you’ve eaten your fill of fresh cooked Dungeness, you can turn it into this easy, delicious crab casserole.
