Commissioner stripped of chairmanship By Justin Burnett Staff reporter

EMERSON:

“I absolutely believe this was made up just to remove me as chair.”

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. Johnson was appointed chairwoman in her place. “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. On Tuesday, Emerson approved the release of a special session notice that announces the planned attendance of at least two board members at a community meeting in Freeland Wednesday evening. The notice was signed and approved by Emerson, a District 1 Republican. It comes just one week after she was publicly chastised by her colleagues for approving See EMERSON, A20

Oak Harbor resident Joshua Lambert is representing himself in a trial that started this week. He’s accused of a double murder and kidnapping.

Aunt describes horrifying discovery

By JESSIE STENSLAND Staff reporter

It’s been a year and nine months since two elderly men were stabbed to death at their North Whidbey homes and a woman was tied up with packing tape. Trial for suspect Joshua Lambert finally started this week with two full days of jury selection followed by harrowing testimony about the events of Oct. 3, 2011. Lambert, 32, a high-school dropout, is acting as his own attorney and is asserting an insanity defense against charges that include two counts of firstdegree murder and a count of kidnapping. He’s accused of killing both his grandfathers and abducting his great aunt;

he claims that he committed the acts in the midst of a schizophrenic delusion in which he needed to save his sons from hostile FBI agents. Lambert continues to be frustrated by court rules. He frequently argues with Island County Superior Court Judge Vickie Churchill, who told him on at least one occasion that he’s in contempt of court. He sits alone at the defense table, surrounded by two corrections deputies and the bailiff because he’s considered a security risk. Island County Prosecutor Greg Banks outlined the case against Lambert in opening statements. His voice was thick with emotion as he continually turned to look at Lambert when describing the violence. “The evidence will show that Mr. Lambert went on this killing spree, this See LAMBERT trial, A10

Whidbey Race Week sails into 31st year By JANIS REID Staff reporter

Oak Harbor is launching its 31st Whidbey Island Race Week today. The annual event that draws sailors from all over the world. Organizer Gary Stuntz said he believes the event has maintained such a loyal following because of its location on Whidbey Island. “It’s a beautiful area to sail,” Stuntz said. “It’s a week’s worth of sailing, and how can you beat a party every night See race week, A20

Drinking too much alcohol is like allowing a foreign object to damage an aircraft’s flight capability. This concept, among others, is at the center of a budding program on Whidbey Island Naval Air Station aiming to eliminate Navy DUIs by teaching responsible behavior in the language of combat. The program is named for the “White Jersey” position on an aircraft carrier, a sailor whose job it is to ensure that all flight crew members are on the safe side of the foul line, which marks the edge of the flight path. In this vein, a sailor is assigned to accompany a group from his or her squadron when they go out for drinks. The White Jersey’s job is to ensure that his fellow sailors are kept out of trouble and transported safety back to base. “Party, then go home like a celebrated squadron,” the program’s training materials say. “What’s unique about this program is that we’ve used the terminology of the aviation community,” said NAS Whidbey Command Chaplain Lt. Tim Loney. “In military terms, we always want to empower them to perform the mission. On the human side, DUIs are counterproductive to the operation.” The program outline makes it clear that a White Jersey is not the same as a designated driver. A White Jersey does much more than that, monitoring behavior for risk factors and providing peer counseling. In addition to targeting DUIs, the program aims to eliminate other alcohol-related incidents such as fighting and sexual assault. Loney said research shows that nearly 100 percent of active-duty military sexual assault involves alcohol. The idea is that the program would create an environment where sailors “have each other’s back” in a drinking situating in the same way they would on mission. While a DUI can have dire consequences for anyone,

Sailors earn ‘DUI Days’ for being incident-free By JANIS REID Staff reporter

Some Whidbey Island Naval Air Station commands are giving sailors a day off if they avoid alcohol-related incidents. While not every command participates in the program, which started about a year and a half ago at NAS Whidbey, the base has seen a dramatic decline in active-duty DUIs, according to NAS Whidbey Executive Officer Chris Phillips. If a participating squadron goes without a DUI or alcohol-related incident for 90 days, the members receive 24 hours of leave as a “DUI Day,” Phillips said. He said some squadrons work to remain incidentfree for an entire year in order to earn a four-day leave. NAS Whidbey’s active-duty servicemen and women saw 50 DUIs last year, Phillips said. This year, which ends Sept. 30, has only seen 18 DUIs. Phillips sees this as evidence that the program is working. “What we have seen is a dramatic drop in DUIs,” Phillips said. “What we are trying to do is change behavior.” “Giving a sailor a day off is an incentive recognizing responsible behavior. You really cannot look at someone in the military as being an hourly employee as he or she is in the service 24 hours a day, seven days a week,” said Mike Welding, public affairs officer for NAS Whidbey. Phillips agrees. Sailors, he explained, “serve at the pleasure of,” often working long hours for the same salary each month, making the DUI Days a sort of compensation day for previous time worked. legally and financially, a sailor has the added repercussions of military discipline. Loney said that a DUI is not necessarily grounds for immediate discharge depending on the circumstances, but at minimum it can have a long-term career impact in the Navy of today. A second DUI, however, would mean immediate discharge and the loss of retirement benefits in some cases, according to the Navy’s official website. If a sailor or officer is arrested for any reason, Navy law “requires all Navy personnel to self-report criminal arrests and charges.” Failure to do so is considered a failure “to obey a lawful general order” and could be grounds for discharge as well. Rick Norrie, law enforcement liaison for the Island County Sheriff’s Department, said that the program “all sounds good.” Unfortunately, he said, we still have a “huge problem.” Norrie said the department has not really seen any marked changes in recent years of Navy drinking and driving behavior. However, he has seen evidence of commands providing rides to

sailors who have had a little too much. However, just last weekend, Norrie reported that he was almost rear-ended by a Navy intelligence specialist not stationed at NAS Whidbey who blew a .16 at around 5 a.m. According to White Jersey training materials, a blood alcohol content of .15 percent looks like this: Subject “may walk backward when going forward, may vomit, may fall off bar stool, is unable to get shot glass into beer, makes it into a YouTube video, believes the solution to three friends consuming all eight six-packs in two hours is another beer run.” While the effort was conceived last September, Loney and his team are just starting to roll out training on the program, and how it will be distributed to commands that wish to participate. So will sailors really plan ahead and self police as a result of the program? “It is our hope that is what is going to happen,” Loney said. “But it’s gonna take a while.”

DOD employees protest civilian worker furloughs By JANIS REID Staff reporter

Discovering that Department of Defense civilian furloughs were imminent, Rick Dutton and a couple fellow employees knew what they had to do. “We decided that on the first day of furloughs, we’d come out and let people know what’s going on,” said Dutton, a DOD supervisor at the base HAZMAT facility. He retired after 21 years in the Navy as a senior chief storekeeper. Dutton, along with two fellow DOD employees, protested with signs at the corner of State Highway 20 and Pioneer Way in Oak Harbor Friday morning. Starting last week, roughly 1,200 civilian workers at Whidbey Island Naval Air Station are slated for an 11-week furlough, comprising a loss of one day a week or 20 percent of their income through the end of the fiscal year, Sept. 30. While most DOD employees will be furloughed on Fridays, some will be off Mondays to ensure service

needs are met. It is unclear how many of the base’s 1,200 contractors are affected by the furloughs. However, contractors who require DOD employee supervision will also be furloughed. “This is 20 percent less money flowing into the community,” Dutton said. “My wife and I are both DOD so it’s a double-whammy for us. We’re losing $1,600 gross per month.” The civilian furloughs, or involuntary time off, are part of the country-wide governmental sequestration which includes cuts to various programs that are funded federally, including the DOD, public schools and housing, as well as some non-profits. Major programs such as Medicare, Social Security, federal pensions and veteran’s benefits are exempt. “We haven’t had a budget in years and sequestration was supposed to be a motivational tool to create a budget,” Dutton said. “Now it seems like they’re using it as a solution.” Cmdr. Leslie Hull-Ryde,

Retired Navy veterans and current Department of Defense civilian employees Ron Witherell, at far left, Rick Dutton and Ty Welch protested furloughs Friday at the intersection of Highway 20 and Pioneer Way. DOD spokesperson for personnel and readiness, said last month that the current one-day-a-week furlough

situation is “unprecedented.” The only previous furloughs occurred in 1995, first furloughing DOD civilians for a

week, and then three weeks. Ron Witherell, who stood with Dutton Friday in downtown Oak Harbor, has been

a warehouse lead at the base HAZMAT center for six years and retired after 20 years in the Navy as a chief storekeeper. “I’ve never seen congress so dysfunctional,” Witherell said. “This 11 weeks… I think it’s not gonna end there if we don’t make something of it. It’s gonna go past 11 weeks.” Naval Ocean Processing Facility instructor Ty Welch said Friday morning that he had to leave the protest for a few hours to go fill out parttime job applications. “I can’t afford the 20 percent pay cut,” Welch said. “They are wasting money on all these other projects while trying to balance the budget on our backs. I understand the federal government needs to balance the budget. But when you see them wasting money… it’s doesn’t go down well.” The trio plan to protest every Friday during furloughs until they end. “We’re small compared to some of the protests out there,” Dutton said. “But maybe we’ll grow.”

Rally cry: Here come Harleys State H.O.G. rally will include bike parade through Oak Harbor

Little Leaguers’ stay could be homer for city By RON NEWBERRY Staff reporter

By RON NEWBERRY Staff reporter

Jon Marrs used a soft cloth to wipe down his metallic blue Harley-Davidson touring bike. The motorcyle, a monster at roughly 950 pounds, gleamed brilliantly in the sun. Still, Marrs kept at it, not wanting to miss any dust, returning for another rub. And another. Marrs and his wife Katie are in Hog heaven. Oak Harbor, their home for 20-plus years, is the host city for the 2013 Washington State Harley Owners Group (H.O.G.) Rally. Already, more than 360 riders have registered for the event, which will take place July 18-20. The event will include a parade through downtown on the first night. “This is going to be a good opportunity to show off the island,” Jon Marrs said. The annual event is normally staged in the warmer climes of Eastern Washington, but rally coordinator Vince Danner opted to take a chance on a westside location in 2013 in what could be the final year of state H.O.G. rallies. They are considering going to regional rallies in the future. Danner pushed for Oak Harbor because of its small-town feel, abundance of scenic riding opportunities and ample lodging. Last year, Omak hosted the rally. “This time, I just thought it would be fun,” said Danner, who lives in Stanwood. “Most people are familiar with Deception Pass. Most of the people on motorcycles, their experience with Whidbey Island is Clinton and Mukilteo and going to Anacortes for the Oyster Run. I thought

Katie and Jon Marrs of Oak Harbor look forward to showcasing Whidbey Island July 18-20.

Katie Marrs’ riding vest reflects her life membership with the North Cascades Harley Owners Group chapter of Washington State. it would be kind of neat to give them more of an opportunity to see more of the island than the central highway that runs down the middle.” Multiple rides are scheduled on and off the island over the three days, including the July 18 parade, which will go from 6-7 p.m. The parade will be staged at the Coachman Inn & Suites. Riders will travel down Midway

Boulevard, Pioneer Way and Ely Street before returning to the hotel. “I think it’s awesome myself,” said Katie Marrs, who works for the Oak Harbor School District. “It’s just like it’s in our own backyard. Everybody has their idea of what motorcyclists are. Last year, I was the director of Ladies of Harley (for the North Cascades chapter). Our group does a lot of fundraising for different people.”

Skagit Harley-Davidson, a dealership in Burlington, is the hub for the North Cascades chapter. The dealership is owned by Oak Harbor residents Fred and Lorie Smith. Katie Marrs said the North Cascades chapter has held fundraisers for Muscular Dystrophy, American Cancer Society and Phoenix Burn Camp, supported food banks and adopted families for Christmas. Katie said she and her husband were riding Harleys even before they got married nearly 19 years ago. And now, it’s a passion they share together. Danner said at least 10 states and three countries will be represented in Oak Harbor. The event is sponsored by the Oak Harbor Chamber of Commerce and the Fleet Reserve Association Branch 97. The Elks club will host many functions. “It’s about getting people together that are like-minded and enjoy riding their HarleyDavidson motorcycles and giving them an opportunity to ride and enjoy themselves,” he said.

Barbara Bourg can see the baseball fields from her antique store. She isn’t quite sure what to expect once the Washington State Little League baseball tournament for 9- and 10-year-olds gets going July 13-21 at Windjammer Park “Some people might get a little tired and wander and we’re always happy to see them,” said Bourg, co-owner of Shady Ladies Antiques & Collectables on Bayshore Drive. Oak Harbor’s businesses could get an economic boost over the next week as roughly 230 players and coaches representing 13 teams from throughout Washington will be visiting the city. Parents and family members often accompany the players at this age group, multiplying the number of guests to the city. Erica Wasinger, president of North Whidbey Little League, expects about 500 visitors. All-Star teams from the state’s 13 Little League districts, from Richland to Ridgefield, will be represented. Each won their district title to get to Oak Harbor. “This is the youngest age group that has a Little League all-star team in this state,” Wasinger said. “This is their first time to go to any tournament, much less a state tournament. Historically, they get really excited and everyone (from their families) comes to watch. “It’s fun to watch.” Games begin Saturday, July 13 at 10:30 a.m. at Windjammer Park. The tournament will start with an opening ceremony at 9 a.m. Sedro Woolley is the nearest team, representing District 11, which covers Skagit and Island counties. Sedro Woolley defeated South Whidbey, 13-6, on the Fourth of July to advance to the state tournament. The site of the state tournaments rotates through the districts. Wasinger said Oak Harbor has hosted several district tournaments but couldn’t remember the last time it hosted a state tournament for Little League baseball. “It’s been a while,” she said. Kathy Reed, executive director for the Oak Harbor Chamber of Commerce, couldn’t be happier. “When people are in town for more than a couple of days, they get to see what Oak Harbor has to offer,” Reed said. “It can be a huge boost not only for the economy but hopefully people love and enjoy their time here and want to come back in the future.”

Third assault victim settles for $1.3 million

Work starts on downtown mural

By JESSIE STENSLAND Staff reporter

Ron Newberry/Whidbey News-Times

Nancy Hakala, a mural painter from Auburn, Calif., began work this week on her latest project along Pioneer Way in downtown Oak Harbor. Hakala will be working over the next four-to-six weeks on a mural that depicts Oak Harbor’s history. Three Oak Harbor High School students will be helping with the privately funded project.

Oak Harbor Wants To Know...

The third of four women to file lawsuits against the North Whidbey Park and Recreation District over sexual assault allegations from the 1990s has settled for $1.3 million, district director Bill Walker said Friday. The four women, represented by Seattle attorney Lincoln Beauregard, were molested as children by convicted serial pedophile Andrew King, who was the swim coach for the Aquajets swim team in the mid-1990s. The lawsuits, filed in King County, claim that the district was negligent in hiring and supervising King, who had unlimited and unsupervised access to the girls. A group of parents at the time complained to district commissioners about King’s inappropriate behavior with female swimmers. The first lawsuit was settled last summer for $1.5 million. The woman was the only victim on the Aquajets team to report to police that King had raped and molested her. She was 12 years old when he started molesting her in 1994.

Oak Harbor police investigated, but King was never charged. King mysteriously disappeared in 1997, right before the park and recreation board was scheduled to discuss complaints about his inappropriate behavior. Detectives in San Jose, Calif. uncovered during a 2009 investigation that King is a serial pedophile who’s raped and molested dozens of girls while coaching swimming over a 30-year career. King is currently serving 40 years in a California prison after pleading no contest to 20 child molestations charges. The second lawsuit was settled last October for $2.1 million. Walker said a lawsuit filed by the fourth woman isn’t yet resolved. He said the parks and recreation district’s insurance company is handling the cases and the negotiations since it also pays the settlements. He said he didn’t know if there will be any more lawsuits related to King. Walker said he couldn’t discuss the cases because of ongoing litigation, but he emphasized that policies and procedures were subsequently adopted to keep children safe.

What are your thoughts on tax increases as a form of revenue generation? - Matt Zublic of Oak Harbor

Whenever possible, taxes should be reduced, not increased. This has historically proven to increase revenue. In recent decades government has expanded dramatically but it’s time we re-establish the original role of government. A smaller, more efficient government would leave more money in Lucas Yonkman the hands of those who earned it, leaving them in a better position City Councilman to support churches and other Position 4 non-profits who have historically provided for many of the social and financial needs of our most vulnerable. They can do the job more efficiently and with a closer, more meaningful connection to those they serve and to the broader community.

Any budget, business, government, or household incorporates expenses and revenue, the only difference are the zeros at the end. There are a number of ways to increase spending cash, in this case we could raise taxes, cut spending or a combination of the two. Mike Piccone Personally, I think taxes are too high and have been for a number City Councilman of years. While raising taxes is a Position 7 way to increase revenue, before I would vote to raise a single dollar in taxes, I would scrub every line of the budget and remove wasteful and unnecessary spending, and eliminate every dollar of that first.

I think tax increases should only be considered as a last resort and should go for the vote of the people. There are other ways that we can explore to generate revenues for the City of Oak Harbor to avoid tax burden to its citizens. Foremost is economic developDanny Paggao ment: job creations, job retention, attracts new businesses, nurture City Councilman existing businesses, and tourism. Position 7 This will enhance the economic vitality of the City by increasing its tax base. Let us continue to work together to make Oak Harbor a better place to live, work, and play.

IN OUR OPINION

It was a hard vote for commissioners, but a necessary one 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. It’s important for the board to present a united front. 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 Oak Harbor, an area represented by Johnson. 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. The commissioners’ responsibilities are great and work load huge. We hope not to see any more unnecessary distractions hamper their efforts to get the work done.

Letters to the editor Commissioners

Only in Island County: Better than reality TV Editor, Island County, gotta love it! Only here would a private citizen expect an interlocal agreement to pay for unlimited vodka and lobster dinners. Only here would a commissioner quote the Bible while arguing separation of church and state. Only here would folks expect quiet in the path of a Naval Air Station. Only here would folks use economic development funds to sponsor a trip to Washington, D.C. for residential improvement. Only here would we propose a $40 million sewer to clean up a body of water that may not be dirty in the first place. Only here would we deny District One citizens the right to attend a public meeting because they didn’t live in the “right” zip code in their own district. Only here would a commissioner begin work on a structure that requires a permit without getting said permit. Only here would voters be refused the right to vote for their local water and sewer district for decades because the folks in charge forgot to update the records. Only here would a commissioner tell a constituent (with a PhD in engineer-

ing) that a local engineering project was “too complex” to discuss with him. Who needs reality TV, Downton Abbey or America’s Funniest Home Videos? We’ve got the county commissioners to amuse us. Chelle Brunke Freeland

Question of the week:

“I think it’s a welldeserved accolade. I heard somebody recently call it ‘Mayberry.’”

What do you think about Oak Harbor being named one of the nation’s top 10 small towns by livability.com?

“I think it’s a nice place to live, especially when you watch the news.”

“Top 10 in the nation is kind of surprising. It’s a quiet town mostly, except for the sirens on Highway 20.”

Michelle Smith, Oak Harbor

Dena Royal, Oak Harbor

“I would agree with that. I haven’t been to too many small towns, but this gives a small town vibe.”

Frank Barone, Oak Harbor

“It’s quite an honor. I don’t blame them. I moved up here when I retired. I think Whidbey Island is a lot like Heaven.”

Jason McWhorter, Oak Harbor

Bristow plays with nation’s best in USA Junior championships By JIM WALLER Sports editor

Over 9,000 athletes converged on Dallas for the USA Volleyball Girls Junior National Championship June 30 to July 3, and Oak Harbor’s Cami Bristow left her mark. Bristow plays for the Seattle Juniors U13 team and, at 12 years old and 5-feet, 2 inches, is generally one of the youngest and shortest on the court. Her team competed against older girls in the U14 division in Dallas, facing 11 teams from Texas, Colorado, California, Iowa, Indiana and Washington. Bristow said, “It was exciting playing against teams from all over the nation. It was challenging and helped us improve as a team.” She added, “It was a lot of fun; I Photo by Steve Bristow

sports in brief Legion team wins 3 of 4 The Oak Harbor Legion team closed out the league season by winning three of its final four conference games, including sweeping first-place Ferndale. Oak Harbor split a double header at Stanwood Tuesday, winning 16-3 and losing 9-6, and then stopped visiting Ferndale 8-2 and 16-6 Thursday. In the first Stanwood game, Clay Doughty slugged two triples and a double for four RBI. Brandon Bailey added two hits, including a double, and Danny Wolfe pitched a one-hitter. In game two, Oak Harbor rallied for six runs in the seventh but came up short. Bailey and Snavely each had two hits and Brent Mertins doubled. In the opening Ferndale game, Teddy Peterschmidt threw a four-hitter and allowed no earned runs. He also had two hits, as did Jack Richter and C.J. Meders. Richter was the winning pitcher in game two and rapped a single and double. Mertins finished with three hits, and Bailey, Peterschmidt and Snavely

each had two. Oak Harbor plays Sequim in a 10 a.m. home nonleague double header today, July 13.

Whidbey team falls in title tilt South Skagit blew open a close game with a sixrun fourth inning to defeat the North Whidbey/ Coupeville Junior Baseball (13/14) team 11-1 to win the district title at Fort Nugent Park Tuesday. South Skagit earned a trip to the state tournament with the win. South Skagit had a tworun lead, then Whidbey pitchers issued five walks and hit a batter before recording an out in the six-run fourth. South Skagit had only one hit in the inning. South Skagit 10-runned North Whidbey/Coupeville with three runs in the bottom of the fifth. Whidbey’s lone run came in the fifth when Isaiah Brown walked, stole second, moved to third on an error and was awarded home on an obstruction call. Brown and Andrew Eaton collected the only North Whidbey/Coupeville hits.

hope I get to do it again.” Bristow was one of the team leaders in service aces and digs and, despite her size, front and back row attacks. Her jump floater serve was particularly affective, according to her father, Steve Bristow. Cami Bristow and the Juniors started play in January and competed in roughly 50 matches prior to Dallas, many against U14 clubs. Bristow travels to Woodinville twice a week for two and a half hour practices and plays in one or two tournaments a month. The time is worth it, she said, because “volleyball is very competitive and I like to win, but I also like to have fun.” The Seattle Juniors are coached by the mother/daughter tandem of April and Kylin Munoz. April is a former University of Washington player, and Kylin, a Monroe High School graduate, is a current Husky. Steve Bristow said the combination of an experienced coach and

player and current NCAA standout are “outstanding at teaching player and team development, plus competitive strategy.” He added, “Cami learned a lot from them.” Cami Bristow, who will be a seventh-grader at Oak Harbor Middle School, also joins summer workouts for the Oak Harbor High School team, holding her own with the older players. Volleyball is in her blood. Mother Ranee Bristow teaches P.E. and coaches volleyball at Oak Harbor Middle School, and sister Katelyn helped OHHS qualify for the 2010 state tournament. Cami said her goals are to start at setter as a freshman for Oak Harbor High School and to play for the University of Washington. If one doubts her, check out the slogan on her favorite T-shirt: “If volleyball was easy, they would call it football.”

Aussie swimmer works out with NWAC By JIM WALLER Sports editor

For Ethan Bachert, it was a working vacation. Bachert and his family were in town July 1-11 for his grandparents’ (John and Marjorie Bachert’s) 50th wedding anniversary. But the young Australian swimming star did more than visit relatives and see the sights, he continued to train for his state championships. Bachert, 14, is ranked second in Australia in his age group in the butterfly. His goal is to someday represent his country in international competition and is zeroing in on the Commonwealth Games hosted by Australia in 2018. To stay in shape, Bachert trained with the North Whidbey Aquatic Club and coach Bill Patterson. Bachert said that it was a privilege to practice with the Aquajets and that Patterson worked him hard. He added, “It was really great to have the sets and coaches.” Bachert wasn’t the only one to benefit from the workouts. Patterson said the

NWAC coach Bill Patterson, left, welcomes Ethan Bachert by presenting him a team swim cap. Bachert, one of Australia’s top age-group swimmers, worked out with NWAC this week. Australian speedster pushed his swimmers and forced them to work harder to keep up. Bachert competes for the Marion Swimming Club in the new $100 million South Australian Aquatic and Leisure Centre.

He is part of the club’s high performance program, considered one of the country’s best. Bachert, the son of Andrew and Debra Bachert, is also a top student at Immaneul College in Adelaide were he is on an academic scholar-

ship. Patterson called Bachert a great kid, hard worker and a pleasure to coach. The only problem, Patterson said jokingly, was that Bachert, true to the Australian rules of the road, swam on the wrong side of the lane.

Lambert trial CONTINUED FROM A1 crime spree, in a desperate attempt to obtain guns,” he said. Banks briefly described the two murder victims, both 80 years old, and projected their photos on a screen. George Lambert was a father, a grandfather and a great-grandfather. He was a local businessman and the elder member of a large Oak Harbor clan. August Eisner, who went by Gene, lived at a North Whidbey home with Joshua Lambert’s mother, stepfather and son. Banks explained that Joshua Lambert lived with his mother and the rest of the family after his release from prison in Alaska three years ago. But he was kicked off the property after he starting drinking excessively and became volatile. A few months later, Joshua Lambert allegedly became a murderer. Banks’ voice broke as he described the details of the victim’s injuries; both men were stabbed many times, beaten and their throats slashed. Banks described how the police gathered up all the members of Lambert’s extended family on the day of the murders because he had threatened to “kill them all.” Joshua Lambert chose to reserve his opening statement until after the prosecution rests. Joshua Lambert’s great-

aunt, Kay Gage, 68, took the stand Thursday afternoon and calmly described walking into a scene of horror. Gage said she moved in with her brother, George Lambert, at his home on Oldenburg Lane after his wife died and he suffered a stroke. Gage testified that she was outside when Joshua Lambert startled her by walking out of the woods on Oct. 3, 2011. He asked to see “Papa George” and went into the house. Gage said George Lambert got along well with his grandson. “He loved him to death, but he was wary,” she said. “He didn’t know what he would do next. But he was his grandpa. He would do anything for him.” Gage said she went into the house shortly afterward and encountered Joshua Lambert, who grabbed her and said he wanted to show her something. She said she immediately sensed something was wrong. “He didn’t look right,” she said, describing Joshua. “I can’t explain it to you, he just didn’t look right.” In the living room, Gage said she saw her brother on the floor surrounded by “a lot of blood.” She realized Joshua Lambert had blood on his face, hands and clothes. Banks asked her what was going through her mind. “I think I was blank,” she said. “I couldn’t believe I was seeing what I was seeing.”

Gage said Joshua Lambert told her not to worry because “the old man is dead.” She said he then hit her over the head twice and taped her wrists and ankles together after she fell to the floor. Gage described “nudging” her brother, who was lying beside her, in an attempt to keep him awake. She said Joshua Lambert demanded to know where the guns were and ransacked the wrong bedroom. She told him that there were guns in the garage, knowing that they were air rifles. Joshua Lambert grabbed an air rifle, apparently not realizing that it wasn’t a real gun, she said. He demanded her car keys and left after making one final statement. “He said, ‘I know what I’ll do. I’ll just kill them all,’” she said. Gage described her struggle to get to her brother’s cell phone with her hands tied behind her back. After about 40 minutes, she managed to call her brother’s friend, who rescued her. During a brief cross examination, Joshua Lambert asked Gage if she smelled alcohol on him and she said she didn’t. He then asked her about one of the things he said. “You said, ‘You don’t understand, this is an emergency,’” she testified. Lambert ended his questioning with a series of questions about the tape dispenser he used to tie her up. The prosecutor called Lambert’s stepfather, James Coffin, to testify. He explained that he and his wife, Lambert’s mother Susan, lived on Hastie Lake Road. They have custody of Lambert’s teenage son. Susan’s father, Gene Eisner, lived in an apartment above

Joshua Lambert’s great aunt, Kay Gage, testified for the prosecution Thursday. She said she walked into her living room moments after Lambert stabbed his grandfather to death. She said her nephew then bound her with packing tape. the garage. Coffin said Lambert came to live with them after getting out of prison in Alaska in the fall of 2010. Lambert insisted on living outside, so he bought a van that he parked at the house. He got a job at a local farm on the second day of being home. “He was doing great,” Coffin said. “He was a joy to be around.” Coffin said Eisner and Lambert got along fine. “Gene liked Josh,” he said. “Gave him the benefit of the doubt. He knew him all his life.” After a few weeks, Coffin said, Lambert became more distant and started drinking. Coffin said Lambert became increasingly volatile and attacked a neighbor for no reason. Finally, his mother told him he had to leave. Coffin said he was afraid of Lambert and wore a .357 magnum if he showed up on his property when his wife wasn’t around. Coffin testified that he

him. He was very apologetic, she said. McCabe said Lambert’s clothes appeared to be covered in blood. She said she noticed hypodermic needles sticking out of his pocket when he was leaving. Lambert also questioned McCabe briefly. He asked her about his appearance. “Your eyes had this lost, scared fear in them,” she said. “It’s hard to explain your eyes at the time.” One of the few times Lambert appeared shaken in court was when his uncle Jeffrey Lambert was called to the stand. Jeffrey Lambert, a soft-spoken man, wept openly and had a difficult time answering questions about his father. “He was always helping people,” he said. “That was who he was.” Joshua Lambert held his hand over his face during his uncle’s testimony. He declined to ask questions.

found his stepfather’s body in his driveway when he drove home on the day of the murders. He thought Eisner had fallen and hit his head until he got a closer look. He said the elderly man was lying in a large pool of blood and his throat was cut open. Lambert questioned Coffin only briefly, focusing on events that occurred before the murder. Former Oak Harbor resident Amber McCabe testified about her encounter with Lambert on the day of the murders. She said she only met him a couple of times through her ex-boyfriend. McCabe, 31, said she was at a friend’s apartment when she saw Lambert coming out of her unit; he was carrying her hunting bow. She yelled at him and he went back inside. McCabe said she confronted Lambert inside her apartment. She repeatedly swore and demanded that he get out of her apartment. She said he immediately dropped the bow when he saw her and said the police were after

New Oak Harbor business teaches emerging water sport of stand up paddleboarding By RON NEWBERRY Staff reporter

Jeff Vallejo grew up in central California and remembers taking weekend road trips to the coast to ride the surf on a bodyboard. After moving to Oak Harbor, he surveyed the water and noticed something was missing. Human activity. “Our water is like a playground,” Vallejo said. “I don’t feel like our community really enjoys it the way it is now. I’m pretty excited about bringing this to Oak Harbor.” Vallejo and his wife Kara have opened a business in Oak Harbor aimed at teaching locals everything they want to know about a surface water sport that is growing in popularity. Vallejo recently got his certification from the World Paddle Association to teach stand up paddleboarding. He got his first board in the spring and says he’s proof of the personal benefits. “I lost 30 pounds in four months from paddleboarding,” Vallejo said. “It’s a full-body workout.” Stand up paddleboarding, like the name suggests, involves a board and a paddle. But instead of trying to hang 10 on some gnarly waves, paddleboarders stand upright or kneel while paddling across calmer waters. “It looks harder than it really is,” Vallejo said. “Any age can do it.” Stand up paddleboarding is a fast growing sport and derivative of traditional paddleboarding, which involves kneeling or laying down on the board and paddling with one’s hands. Traditional paddleboarding dates back centuries to Polynesia, while the stand-up form got started in the 1960s but didn’t spread globally in popularity until the past decade. Vallejo, 29, is operating his business, which is called HarborSUP, from the Oak Harbor Marina. He offers paddleboarding lessons Friday evenings and all day on Saturdays and Sundays. The cost for a 90-minute lesson is $55 for one person, and $30 for each additional person for a group

lesson. The price includes equipment, wetsuit and life jacket. Although Vallejo also rents and sells boards, he requires a lesson for those new to the sport. Reservations may be made by calling Vallejo at 360-632-1601. Lesson times are listed on the website at www.harborsup.net. Vallejo would like to open his own paddleboarding shop in town in the fall, but in the meantime operates his business from the marina. Rhonda Severns, merchant liai-

son for the city of Oak Harbor, said she’s talked to Vallejo about the idea of holding a paddleboard festival in the city next year. Vallejo’s current focus, however, is to get Oak Harbor residents’ feet wet first. He taught his first lessons last weekend and will continue through the summer. In one group lesson, two students were on their feet almost immediately while another was more comfortable kneeling. The boards are light yet enormous at roughly 11 feet long and 3 feet wide.

Vallejo’s board is lightweight enough to carry yet sturdy enough to stand on. a kid. By getting on the board and just stretching and working on the paddleboard, it started strengthening the lower back muscles and lower abs that sort of support everything else. It’s definitely a core workout.

“There’s also something about being on the water. I’ve been here 12 years. I have nothing against kayaking, but this has a surfing style to it. You are standing above the water and you can see everything.”

and sailing every day.” “Overall, the fun factor is pretty high.” The week’s-worth of events begin today with the Dinghies Whidbey Island event, which runs Saturday and Sunday July 13-14. Now in its third year, the Dinghies event is open to any sailing vessel under 24 feet long. Stuntz said that, while participation in the main race has seemed to plateau over the years, the new dinghy event is growing. “It’s great because there are so many people with boats in their yards that never get used,” Stuntz said. “It’s a great opportunity for them to get them out into the water.” The main set of races, for all one-design and PHRF sailboats 19-72 feet long, kicks off 6 p.m. Sunday, July 14, with a welcome reception complete with live music and rum tents hosted by the Oak Harbor Yacht Club. All evening events are open to sailors and non-sailors alike. Dave French, having painted the artwork featured in the Race Week poster for the fourth time now, says he has been sailing since he was 6 months old and looks forward to the event every year. As an avid sailor and Coupeville resident, French prides himself on getting the rigging in his paintings true to life. Sheila Weinsheimer, organizer of the race’s apparel sales, said she got involved four years ago as a result of her sailor husband, North Whidbey Middle School Principal Bill Weinsheimer. Having moved to Whidbey Island in 2005, Weisenheimer said the Oak Harbor Yacht

a similar notice for a meeting in Oak Harbor. Johnson, a District 2 Republican, and 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 takes action against the majority wishes of the board. Despite the warning, Emerson said she approved the notice because she planned to attend the meeting, which she did. She claimed there is nothing unusual or illegal about the board meeting in a special

Sailors compete during the 2012 Whidbey Island Race Week that took place in Oak Harbor and Penn Cove. Club and the race week event gave them an immediate sense of friendship and belonging. “It’s a great way to feel part of the community,” Weisenheimer said. “And I have the greatest excuse to be here all week long.” “Through race week we have made friends with people from all over the world.”

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. Emerson also argues that, contrary to the claims of her fellow commissioners last week, that there was no consensus reached during the June 12 work session. A review of the recording reveals no formal vote or a clear verbal agreement. Emerson noted that the issue was discussed again during a Monday, June 17 board meeting. The commissioners talked about their intentions and the possible need for a special session notice and none of the commissioners voiced any objections at the time. Johnson and Price Johnson maintained that their understanding was that each meeting would be attended by only one commissioner and that Emerson acted on her own. Johnson and Price Johnson said Wednesday they were surprised to see another special meeting notice, especially following

their vocal objections last week. 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 the majority wishes of the board. Emerson explained that 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. “So frankly, I did exactly what the majority of the board was desiring,” Emerson said. 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 took the reins and called for a vote, which passed 2-0. Emerson abstained.
