Farm tractor chase ends with driver at gunpoint

Accused killer’s mother blames drug use

By JUSTIN BURNETT Staff reporter

A Central Whidbey man is facing two felony charges this week following a joyride down State Highway 20 on a stolen John Deere farm tractor. The very-slow-speed chase ended with the man at gunpoint. Island County Sheriff Office deputies and Coupeville deputy marshals took Josiah Blodgett, 24, into custody at about 9:30 p.m. Sunday just north of the Coupeville stoplight. Blodgett had just led police on a four-mile chase that began at Jacobs Road and ended at the top of Sherman

A couple of days ahead of schedule, Island County Prosecutor Greg Banks rested his case against accused doublemurderer Joshua Lamber t Monday. The day’s testimony provided insights into Lam- Wallace bert’s state of mind after the murders through candid conversations he had with his mother and the unusual circumstances surrounding his written confession. Lambert is set to give his opening statement Wednesday morning, after which he will present his case. He is acting as his own attorney and is asserting an insanity defense. LAMBERT IS charged with the Oct. 3, 2011 murder of his two grandfathers and the kidnapping of his great aunt. Lambert is expected to call an expert witness to testify that he suffers from paranoid schizophrenia and was legally insane at the time of the murders; the prosecutors will likely call his own expert witSee LAMBERT TRIAL, A14

Growing interest in arts and crafts classes leads to change of venue By JANIS REID Staff reporter

Just six months after opening Collage, the Paper Arts Store, in downtown Oak Harbor, owner Naomi Schneider is moving to a larger location just down the street due to steady business growth. Tuesday’s card-making class was booked, with a total of eight students, and Thursday’s class only had a couple of spots left. She attributes her business’ success to an increasing interest in the card-making classes, as well as scrapbooking and other types of arts and crafts. “Art is in the moment,” Schneider said. “When you’re into art, you’re just there.” Not only does Schneider love sharing her love of arts and crafts, but she appreciates the sense of community and togetherness that the classes create. “Women are getting together, socializing, becoming friends,” Schneider said. “Truly I love the classes… I love to get people excited about art.” Currently at 665 S.E. Pioneer Way with just over 600 square feet, the arts and crafts store is moving just up the street next month to 651 S.E. Pioneer Way into the former location of MichaelJohn’s Trading Post, where she will more than double

her space with 1,400 square feet. While Schneider is still prepping the new space for the move, she expect to be relocated the beginning of August. In the new space, she will be able to have up to 12 participants per class, and create a permanent classroom space, instead of the make-shift temporary one she has in the back of her current shop. The store offers various arts and crafts products, including rubber stamps, specialty and hand-made paper, paints, ribbons, stencils, and variety of other items to personalize any card, picture frame, artwork or gift. “She’s got a great business and if you’ve been in her store, it’s well laid out and has great inventory,” said Kathy Reed, director of the Oak Harbor Chamber of Commerce. “Every time I’ve been in there she had everything I needed… and other things I didn’t need. She obviously knows what she’s doing that that’s key to any business.” Roya Devenport of Oak Harbor has been attending the classes at Collage since she first opened in January. Devenport described the classes as “absolutely wonderful.” Praising Schneider as a “marvelous teacher,” Devenport said that

County explores road options for Ledgewood By JUSTIN BURNETT Staff reporter

Driftwood Way residents in the Ledgewood community will have to rely on a tiny, single-lane gravel road as the sole access to the homes for at least two years. That was one of the messages that came from a community meeting in Coupeville last week. The meeting involved Island County officials and Central Whidbey residents affected by a massive landslide this past March. The nearly 100 residents in attendance also got new information from experts about what may have caused the landslide, heard how the county plans to deal with stormwater problems and what the future may hold for the destroyed section of Driftwood Way. ROAD ISSUES seemed to touch the most nerves. Many made it clear they think the county is failing to live up to its obligation to homeowners. “These are not just summer residences that can be ignored,” said Arthur Nowell, a Driftwood Way resident. Island County Public Works Director Bill Oakes said the area around the old road is still dangerous and that it will be at least two years before engineers will know whether the two-lane road can ever be repaired. The spring landslide

Many residents voiced concern that the road is an accident waiting to happen and that liability will fall on their shoulders. Some are so worried they inquired about rumors that the county is considering buying out some homeowners. “That is not true,” said Oakes, earning a round of healthy laughter throughout the room. “I thought I would ask because I would sell you ours,” Kim Dales said.

demolished a large section of the road, effectively cutting off vehicular access to a small neighborhood. Although an emergency road was constructed, many said they want Driftwood Way rebuilt and were highly skeptical of the county’s explanation. GREG COSGROVE said he finds it hard to believe the area could be all that dangerous when county workers just built a dirt road – separate from the emergency gravel road – right through a large swath of the debris field to allow a drilling rig to dig core samples. “You let rigs that weigh 10 tons on that road and you won’t let me take my Volkswagen across it?” asked Cosgrove, a Driftwood Way resident. “No, I don’t buy that.” J. Gordon, principal geotechnical engineer with Seattle-based GeoEngineers – the county’s hired consultant – agrees with Oakes assessment. “The material below (the dirt road) is literally pancake batter,” said Gordon, adding that winter rains may significantly impact the area’s stability. Gordon started the meeting with a lengthy history lesson that covered everything from past landslides in Ledgewood and the findings of other experts hired years before to all the efforts undertaken since the March

Island County Commissioner Helen Price Johnson addresses a concern voiced by Driftwood Way resident Arthur Nowell during a meeting in Coupeville last week. event. AS FOR what triggered the landslide, there appears to be no “smoking gun.” Rather, experts say it was the result of several factors in an area that has been highly unstable for thousands of years. Contributors include erosion of the bottom portion of the bluff, which acts as a stop for the material above, climate change resulting in heavy rainfall and changes to surface water, and heavy saturation from ground water. The larger Ledgewood area appears to be safe, but the upcoming rainy season may cause more problems around the slide area, particularly for the few homes

red or yellow tagged. “During this winter, who knows what’s going to happen,” Gordon said. “There is no way to predict the areas right adjacent to that slide because it’s just too active.” WITH MANY unknowns, Gordon said he would not recommend rebuilding Driftwood Way. The temporary dirt road built could disappear tomorrow; there is just no way to know, he said. “This road could go away overnight,” he said. Attendees also appeared united in the their displeasure over the gravel emergency road, which was built shortly after the landslide occurred. The county commissioners approved a declaration of emergency, which gave them special powers, and the road was constructed on private property. The declaration has since been rescinded and Oakes has argued that care of the road must be passed to residents. Because it’s on private property, funding any maintenance would be a gift of public funds.

“I’m telling you we can’t spend public money on private propery,” he said. OAKES’ POSITION is hotly contested. Lowell, an oceanography professor at the University of Washington, argued that the restriction only applies to certain funds, a point Oakes concedes may be true. “I want to make that point very, very strongly in front of everybody,” Lowell said. Also, the road is officially designated as “primitive” and state law absolves counties that build them from any liability. That is not the case, however, if the road is privately owned. ISLAND COUNTY Commissioner Helen Price Johnson addressed the issue during the meeting. This is an unusual situation which presents legal questions that have yet to be answered, she said. “I don’t have those answers today but I am pursuing that,” Price Johnson said. “It’s not quite as simple from where I’m sitting as it is from where Arthur is sitting.”

OAKES SAID he is looking into the possibility of an agreement that would allow the county to assume temporary stewardship of the road until the fate of Driftwood Way is determined. Oakes asked for patience, saying the landslide’s aftermath created problems he’s never dealt with before. “As I told the commissioner, I’m making this up because we haven’t done this before,” Oakes said. “I haven’t found anyone who’s done this before.” WHILE OAKES was on the hot seat for much of the meeting, several in the group conceded these are complex issues and sometimes the answers aren’t clear. “I know we have concerns, things that are not solved and I know that we all have questions and different ways of thinking about this,” said Jan Wright, president of the Ledgewood Beach Property Owners Association. “But I do think we want to thank these folks who have come out to help us. They came when we needed them and they are still working on this no matter how hard it’s gotten. Thank you all for being here.” Her comments earned applause throughout the room and ended the meeting.

Race Week

Sailors soak up sun, fun and rum By JANIS REID Staff reporter

Serad Atakturk is famous for his dive. After each hard day’s sailing, Atakturk dives into the water from the stern of his boat — no matter what the temperature. “There have been places where the water has been too cold, I had to get out right away,” he said. “But today, the water is nice.” On Monday, Atakturk took his traditional jump in the water after his first day at Whidbey Island Race Week, his ninth year participating in the regatta. A handful of sailors who know him gathered at the dock to watch the infamous jump. A Turkish immigrant who moved to Seattle in the 1980s, Atakturk said he comes back each year because of “this whole sunshine, sailing and enjoying the Pacific Northwest summer.” While his boat the Corvo, a J-33, did not place in Monday’s race, he remains optimistic that the week would yet bring some wins for them because a couple key crew members would be arriving for Tuesday’s races. “Not today,” Atakturk said. “But it’s a week long, and we will be strong tomorrow.” Atakturk’s dive is not the only tradition on the Corvo. Each day of sailing begins with “morning prayers” which comprises pass-

ing around a bottle of The Kraken black spiced rum. Each team member sports matching temporary tattoos with the image of a crow (“corvo” in Italian), and paint their finger and toe nails a matching color — men and women alike. At the close of each race, they each treat themselves to a “dark and stormy,” a cocktail with rum, ginger beer, lemon “and some other stuff.” During the races that began at noon in Penn Cove and Crescent Harbor, crews experienced breezes of 12-17 knots, according to organizers. In addition, as many as five Orca whales welcomed the fleet while the parade of boats exited the harbor. Event organizer Gary Stuntz said that while he has seen orcas during Race Week before, it is unusual and hasn’t happened for several years. After ships had been docked, sailors received wristbands with which they could enjoy the various drinks offered in the rum tents. Live music was provided by Tambourine Sky, self described as “folkadelic roots and blues” and race participants danced singly and in couples as the sun set over Oak Harbor. The sailing, live music and rum tents are provided each night after sailing for the duration of the event which ends Friday, July 19 with an awards ceremony and a volleyball tournament. It had been 30 years since commercial airline pilot Don Linrothe of Bainbridge Island has sailed at Whidbey Island Race Week. His boat’s name, Comfort Monkey, comes from the fact that people with flight anxiety are allowed to bring a designated “comfort animal” to fly with them, usually a dog. On one flight, however, one passenger came with his very own comfort monkey, which Linrothe thought would make a perfect boat name. Monday marked his first one-design race ever with

The crew of the Elusive, skippered by Jeff Whitney, places second in the P3 PHRF division Monday. a new, inexperienced crew. Notwithstanding, Linrothe’s crew on the Comfort Monkey placed second in the P5 Melges 24 division on Monday. “It’s the most competitive division in this event,” Linrothe said. “So we did not bad.” David Steffen’s boat, the Vitesse, came in third place in the P8 PHRF division at Monday’s race with the assistance of his son, Brock, who turned 21 that day. Brock, in high spirits after the week’s first race on his birthday, carried a bottle of Captain Morgan spiced rum and offered a slug to passersby like a true sailor. Proud dad, Steffen, said the event is a must-see for anyone within sailing distance. “The sun, the hospitality of Oak Harbor, the excellent race committee,” Steffen said. “This is the pinnacle event for racing in the Pacific Northwest.” • For more information, visit www.whidbeyislandraceweek.

Island offers up great discoveries every day publisher’s column

By Keven R. Graves

As the publisher of all three Whidbey Island newspapers, one of the challenging parts of the job is also one of the most enjoyable. From end to end, Whidbey is approximately 35 miles long, but jumping into the car and traveling to each of the newspapers is one of my favorite tasks. From the Whidbey News-Times in Oak Harbor to the Whidbey Examiner in Coupeville to the South Whidbey Record in Langley, I’m developing a greater appreciation every day for the differences between each area and the unique character that each population embraces. My reporting career began more than 25 years ago in Oak Harbor at the News-Times, so I have many fond memories of being totally immersed in nearly every aspect of North Whidbey over the next seven years. When I started at the News-Times, I was just out of college and, for a few months, drove from my parents’ home in Anacortes, over Deception Pass Bridge and into Oak Harbor. Day or night, sunny or foggy, that commute was never less than awesome. To this day I love traveling over the bridge. I had fun living and working in Oak Harbor. Whidbey Island Naval Air Station had its air shows, the city had, and still has, Race Week, its old-fashioned Fourth of July and a strong sense of pride. Navy neighbors merge with old-timers with either Dutch or Irish names to form a unique and tight-knit population. Over about seven years, I lived in homes on both sides of Penn Cove, the first place overlooking the mussel rafts off Madrona Way. The Madrona Way cabin was within walking distance to Front Street and Toby’s Tavern. Among my favorite memories is walking to town on a snowy night. The first home I owned overlooked Monroe Landing on the Oak Harbor side of the cove. We weren’t far from the drive-in theater and small airport. We could walk to the beach at Monroe Landing. I once got stuck in the knee-deep mud there with my then-infant son in my arms, losing a boot in my panicked, slow trek back to shore. Penn Cove is a magical place from either side. After I left the News-Times I co-founded the Whidbey See publisher’s column, A7

Letters to the editor Samaritans

Appreciate those who stopped, offered help Editor, On Friday, July 12, at 5:30 p.m. I was headed to Coupeville on State Highway 20 to meet friends and attend a birthday party. There was no traffic on either side of the road and I decided to pull over to check that I had all of my gifts, food, etc. I then made a bad decision to back up — my right rear tire went into the ditch. As soon as I stopped and got out of the car two cars pulled up to help. One civilian couple and a young military man. They were extremely kind, helped me call AAA for assistance and made sure I was not injured. The couple left, but the young man stayed with me to await a tow truck. A few minutes later, two other base personnel stopped, and the three of them decided they could push me out of the ditch. They were successful and, after looking over my car, agreed I should be able to drive safely back home. I thanked them, but sadly did not

get their names. So I hope they will see this letter. The daily news tells us all about people doing bad things. I know the world is filled with kind, caring people and we are truly blessed to have more than our share here on Whidbey Island. The kindness of strangers saved me from a frightening situation and I am very grateful. Thank you to all who stopped and cared. Mary Vaughn Coupeville

Commissioner Kelly Emerson as chairwoman appears to lack statutory authority for that vote ever to have occurred. County-elected officials have only those powers expressly conferred or delegated to them by specific statutory language. County commissioners are mandated to elect a chair during their first session after the general election, which was way back in December 2012, and they are not statutorily authorized to do so at any other time. From this, it derives that a freshman commissioner such as Jill Johnson may never accede as chair during the first year in office, since Jill Johnson was not even a commissioner back in December. Luckily, the statutes also allow that any person may appeal to Superior Court for any decision or order of the board of county commissioners, and such appeal must be made within 20 days after such a decision was made. Moreover, the premise upon which this vote was cast is also flawed. Johnson and Price Johnson also completely lack the statutory authority to cajole or order a fellow commissioner not to issue a special meeting notice or not to attend a public meeting. A special meeting may be called at any time by the presiding officer of the governing body — the chair — of a public agency or by a majority of the members of the

governing body. This fully enables all county commissioners to attend all desired public forums, just as any other citizen. William Burnett Oak Harbor

OLF Coupeville

Silent stretch shows Navy can train without field Editor, I find it very interesting that, as important as the Outyling Field in Coupeville is to the Navy, as well as an important part of our much-needed national defense, the Navy was somehow able to do fine without using it since May. This “Sound of Freedom” has been wonderful, and I thank the Navy for this much needed break. But, I now wonder, if the Navy was able to go this long without using the OLF, why not stop entirely? Wherever they have been flying to do their much needed practices, why not continue? This proves that the Navy can do without using the OLF. We now know that the Navy can practice elsewhere. Perhaps the “need” for the OLF is just another bunch of hogwash. Michael Monson Coupeville

Examiner. There, I developed a deeper understanding of the history that permeates everything from soil on the farms to the rustic floors and walls of each historic building. When someone makes Central Whidbey their home, they literally adopt the local history and vigorously protect it. For most of my earliest years on Whidbey, Greenbank was as far as I traveled. The Greenbank Farm seems perched on the edge of great things, drawing people in with its shops, restaurant and intermittent events, including the upcoming Loganberry Festival and Highland Games. It is only since returning to the island that I’ve spent time becoming friends with South Whidbey. As a young reporter in Oak Harbor, The Record seemed 100 miles away. Following a severe storm one year, power went out at the Oak Harbor office, and I was dispatched to the Langley office. At the time, there was a backup generator powering the town. The trip down the frozen highway was a nail-biter. It might as well been Siberia. Now, with the Record in a transitional phase, I’ve spent a lot of time on South Whidbey. I look forward to my visits there, not

When the war broke out he quit school to join the U.S. military, but was turned down because he was still a Canadian, so he went up and joined the Royal Canadian Air Force and graduated as a WAG, Wireless Air Gunner. He flew in Blennem Bombers to name a few. He attend No.4 B&G school in Fingal, Ontario, Shepard Field, Calgary and transferred to New Brunswick. The war in Europe was winding down and the RCAF released him and he came back to the states to be with his family. Then the U.S. Army Air Force drafted him until the end of WWII.

Umpires: At least they are right half the time By JIM WALLER Sports editor

This is a story about umpires. Boooooo! Just the mention of umpires elicits a negative response among fans. Few professions receive less respect than Rodney Dangerfield. Some consider umpires a necessary evil. In reality, they are simply necessary – unbiased arbitrators to ensure a fair contest. They are willing to take the abuse that comes with making a close call – a decision half those involved think is an outrage. Oak Harbor is the home of two of the region’s leading umpires, Jim Shulock and Tim O’Brien. Shulock began umpiring during his college baseball- playing days at the University of Florida in 1974, maybe because he has it in his blood. His father was a professional umpire and his brother Jim umpired for many years in the major leagues. After college he continued to umpire where he was stationed by the Navy, coming to Oak Harbor in the mid-90s.

He was named the Washington State High School Umpire of the Year in 2007. He was selected to work in the 2007 and 2011 state 3A and 4A tournaments, and is sought out for community college and Division II and III college games, as well as for the West Coast League (college summer league). Shulock has also filled in when needed for professional spring training games in Arizona. One of the highlights of his career, he said, was working home plate at Safeco Field during the state high school championship game. There he stood “in the exact same spot that my brother had earlier ejected Lou Pinella during a Mariners’ game.” O’Brien started in 1994 while coaching for North Whidbey Little League. He worked up to Babe Ruth baseball and then high school, where he was already officiating football and basketball games. He, too, has been selected to work district, regional and state high school games, and in the West Coast League. In addition, he has worked state and regional

Babe Ruth contests and the Palouse Summer Series at Washington State University. So why do it? Why take on a chore that invites criticism? Shulock said, “I got into umpiring mostly because I love the game of baseball and I felt that I could do a better job than those I had umpiring the games I played in. Later it became a matter of pride in getting the call right and making sure the game was played fair and in the pure form it was intended.” O’Brien became involved for several reasons, including a love for the “rules aspect of the game” and the need for “quality officiating.” “I pour my heart and soul into the season I’m officiating,” O’Brien said, “to provide the best product I can on the field of play.” He also sees it as an avenue to spend time with his sons, who were involved in many sports: “Where else can you spend hours with your boys while teaching them how to deal with some pretty difficult situations and walk away with a smile on your face?” Another reason, he said, was “as the body ages and we no longer can play at the level we desire, it is a way to stay deeply involved in the game and have an impact on the game.” Shulock said the best way to handle the abuse officials receive is to “first consider the source and then the situation.” He added, “You need to let the situation dictate what you can tolerate.” Regardless, he said, “I make it a point to have a line that won’t be crossed, and if it is, I will eject the offender. No umpire should be threatened or verbally abused.” O’Brien agreed that it is important to take each situation individually and “not carry a chip on your shoulder from game to game.” Both said much of the abuse from fans comes from a lack of knowledge of the rules or understanding of the game. Shulock said fans should read the rule book and an umpire’s mechanic manual before deciding to judge: “Don’t think that what you see on TV in a major league

At left, Tim O’Brien signals a strike during a recent Legion game. baseball game pertains to youth baseball.” O’Brien said, “In a game between two teams, there is always a third team on the field, and they are the only ones that have no stake in the outcome.” Both said one of the positives of umpiring is the comradeship of fellow umpires. Shulock said another postiive is giving the coaches, play-

ers and fans “a good game.” “It is definitely not the money, travel, broken bones, concussions, bad fans and bad baseball,” he said. O’Brien said, “I find working a game hard and hustling to be in the right position on calls the most rewarding part of the game.” “Once you join the officiating side of sports,” he said, “you look at all contests from a completely different perspective.”

Area associations, O’Brien said, are always looking for new members who are “willing to work hard and become part of a great group of hard working professionals.” “The hours and travel can be long and the income may have you break even,” he said, “but if you enjoy the game of baseball, there is no better way to stay involved and maintain your current job.” Or to be right 50 percent of the time.

Tercero comes back to win Amateur Robert Tercero came from four strokes down to capture the first Whidbey Amateur Saturday and Sunday, July 13 and 14. After the first round Saturday at the Gallery Golf Course, Doug Pierce, this year’s Whidbey Golf Club Men’s Invitational winner, led with a 72; Tercero shot a 76. Tercero stormed back with a 70 at the Whidbey Golf Club Sunday to claim the title with a total of 146. Sean Hall finished second with a 148. Larry Pelham took the low overall net

crown “with an astounding 64-62 for an 18 under par 126,” according to WGC pro David Phay. He was followed by Todd Harris at 143 and Pierce and John Geragotelis at 144. In Flight 2, recent Coupeville High School graduate Austin Fields shot the best gross score of 157. David Smith and Doug Rathbun led in net scores with 139. In Flight 3, Gunnar Loveng topped the field with a gross of 180. Harold Koch carded the best net score of 142; Ken Sargent was next at 147.

Parents host Race the Reserve Race the Reserve was such a hit last summer, the Coupeville High School class of 2014 parents decided to continue the fundraiser this summer Saturday, Aug. 10. Once again the event will feature half marathon, 10K and 5K races. The start/ finish line is slated for Mickey Clark Field behind Coupeville Elementry, with the half marathon taking off at 8:30 a.m. and the 10K and 5K 30 minutes later. The fee to race is $45 for the half marathon, $30 for the 10K and $20 for the 5K. The cost increases after Saturday, July 20. Participants can register at racethereserve.com. Last year 260 racers participated. Parent Marci Ameluxen said, “We are hoping to have 350 participants this year. It’s going to be much more beneficial to have one big fundraiser than have the students and parents spend most of their senior year raising money.” That was the thinking behind the decision of the parents of the class of 2013 to hold the initial Race the Reserve last year. The group believed it would be more efficient to plan and execute a large-scale

event than many smaller fundraisers. The bulk of the money raised will be used for the seniors’ end of the year party. In addition to being a fundraiser, the event, according to parent Wendy McCormick, is a “positive, healthy experience which we feel is a wonderful way to support the community which has always been so supportive of our schools.” She added, “The race brings many runners and walkers from out of town who will spend time visiting our beautiful Central Whidbey.” The half marathon route will take advantage of that beauty. Parent Aimee Bishop called the course “one of the best in the Puget Sound.” It weaves through Ebey’s Landing National Historic

Reserve and includes panoramic views of the Olympics, the Strait of Juan de Fuca, Mount Rainier and Mount Baker. Over 50 volunteers are set to manage the race. Ameluxen said, “We have an amazing team that has been working on the race for months.” Included in that group are McCormick, Bishop, Nanette Streubel, Monica Felici, Melanie Kooch and Lorene Norris. Among the businesses providing support are Kapaws Ice Cream, Christopher’s on Whidbey, Prairie Logos, MJC Copy Center and Rosenkranz Productions. Ameluxen said, “Overall the most important goal is to provide a safe and fun graduation party.”

Upbeat coffee barista credits his personal rebirth to his association with Harley Owners Group riders By RON NEWBERRY Staff reporter

It’s not the espresso that perks JD Stewart up. It’s life itself. As a customer approached the drive-up window at Starbucks, she was greeted JD STEWART: by a Oak Harbor res- grayident is barista goateed, in mornings, middleHarley rider in age man buzzing the afternoons. near the register. Like a kid, Stewart had something he couldn’t wait to share. “I’m excited,” he told the woman. “The Hogs will be in town. So keep your children locked up. “I’m just kidding!” Stewart has been on cloud nine since the day he learned that Oak Harbor would be the host city for the 2013 Washington State Harley Owners Group (H.O.G.) Rally. The time has arrived as nearly 400 Harley-Davidson motorcycle riders are converging on Oak Harbor for the July 18-20 event, which

H.O.G. Rally Oak Harbor is the host city of the 2013 Washington State Harley Owners Group Rally July 18-20. More than 360 riders are expected in Oak Harbor with many participating in a parade down Midway Boulevard, Pioneer Way and Ely Street at 6 p.m. Thursday, July 18.HarleyDavidson is celebrating its 110th anniversary. The North Cascades chapter of H.O.G. is in its 30th year of existence. The state H.O.G. Rally might be going to a tri-state format as early as 2014 so this could be the last state rally. The 2013 rally includes various rides on and off the island and events at the Oak Harbor Elks Lodge. The event is sponsored by the Oak Harbor Chamber of Commerce and Fleet Reserve Association Branch 97.

I try to spread that to all the people I know and all my customers. Just being able to share what we do as a group is kind of exciting to me.”

JD Stewart joined the North Cascades chapter of Harley Owners Group to help him cope after cancer claimed his wife of 22 years.

Stewart greets groggy Starbucks customers in the drivethrough window with his cheery disposition. A retired Navy structural mechanic, Stewart turned barista at Starbucks six years ago. Stewart, 52, credits his association with the North Cascades chapter of H.O.G. with helping him heal from a deep loss. In October of 2009, he lost his wife of 22 years, Carla, to lymphoma. His life revolved around Carla and the two daughters she brought into his life

from a previous marriage. His perky personality was attacked head on when they both learned that months of chemotherapy and radiation treatments weren’t going to save her life. Carla asked to return home to Oak Harbor to die, and did so at her home with her husband and daughters

at her side. Stewart remembers realizing that the only future he had ever envisioned was now a vast blank space that had been wiped clean. Retired from the Navy, Stewart needed nearly a month before he could return to work at Starbucks, and once he did, noticed others struggled to try to talk to him, not knowing what to say. “They’d tell me that their grandfather died,” Stewart said. “I would think, ‘You didn’t live with your grandfather for 22 years. Your grandpa wasn’t supposed to go into forever with you.’ Or they’d go, ‘I lost my uncle, or I lost my aunt.’ People try to say it’s the same loss. It’s not. Loss is loss, but there are different levels.” Coping with grief, Stewart began listening harder to his counselor and to friends. One friend in particular

One of two Harley-Davidson tattoos that Stewart wears. suggested that Stewart, who had ridden motorcycles most of his life, do something for himself and buy a Harley-Davidson. That same friend recommended he branch out and get acquainted with a new crowd, the H.O.G. North Cascades chapter whose membership is based around the Skagit Harley-Davidson dealership in Burlington that is owned by Oak Harbor residents Fred and Lorie Smith.

Former sailor turns to country music career By RON NEWBERRY Staff reporter

Caleb Fischer, a former naval aviation mechanic turned country singer, is performing at the Oak Harbor Tavern July 20.

For Caleb Fischer, there’s only one way to travel on this journey he’s taking. He’s not in any race, but as long as he keeps moving forward and getting closer to his dream, that’s good enough for him. For now. “There’s really no Plan B,” he said. “This has to work.”

Fischer is trying to make a living as a country music singer. He has a band that carries his name. The band will be at the Oak Harbor Tavern July 20 at 9 p.m. as Fischer releases his new album titled Mile Marker One. He believes the title is fitting. “Most of the songs have to

do with being on the road,” he said. “The last five years or so of my life I’ve traveled a lot. So it’s kind of symbolic. It’s my first album. It’s kind of the start of a whole new adventure here.” It’s not the first time Fischer has performed in Oak Harbor. He spent five years in the Navy, based at Whidbey

Island Naval Air Station. Although he already was a talented pianist, it was during his time in the Navy when he started playing guitar and began singing and strumming his guitar in local bars at the urging of friends. “I’d written a couple of songs and played for friends,” See SINGER, A13

he said. “They encouraged me to go to bars and try it out. When I turned 21, I was finally able to go to bars.” He remembered how he trembled while singing the first couple of songs at his first performance. “I found out real quick that goes away by the third or fourth song,” he said. “You start to get really comfortable when you see the audience start smiling and singing along. Then, it’s a lot of fun. “You fall down a little bit and you get back up. I’ve

completed Combat Survival Training, earned his Parachutist Badge and Glider Instructor Pilot wings, and was an instructor pilot for Basic and Advanced Soaring. In addition, he is the fourth cadet ever to be selected to be a USAFA Cross Country Soaring Instructor Pilot. Olson was captain of the Air Force Academy Sailplane Racing Team for their record-breaking season and competed in TG-15A Duo Discus and TG-15B Discus 2b gliders in Utah, New Mexico and Nevada setting state and academy records. He also set the record for the farthest distance a TG10B Merlin glider was flown away from the Academy. Among his many soaring accomplishments he earned his Federation Aeronautique Internationale Silver and Gold Badges which are internationally-recognized levels of soaring achievement for altitude, duration and distance. He served as the 94th Flying Training Squadron Cadet Superintendent and Public Affairs Officer and was selected to take various dignitaries soaring.

definitely messed up a few times.” Since leaving the Navy in October after five years of service, Fischer has put all of his focus on his music career. He dove right into recording his first CD, working with a producer in Port Orchard, then forming a band. He also got help from a Navy friend to create a video for the song, Lone Star Man, and the video was posted on YouTube. Fischer said the video was filmed in Oak Harbor and Coupeville with appearances from his Navy pals. Fischer, 24, who lives in Snohomish, said he fell in love with country music

Olson continued to skydive outside the Academy and made a total of 86 jumps earning his A and B skydiving licenses. He also took scuba diving at the Academy. Olson cross-commissioned to the Navy as an Ensign and was sworn in by his father, LCDR Jesse Olson, USN (Ret) on May 28. A 2009 graduate of Oak Harbor High School, he drove from Oak Harbor to Naval Air Station Pensacola, Fla., in late June where he reported for Aviation Preflight Indoctrination and Naval Flight Officer Training. TYLER W. DODGE graduated on June 21 from Great Lakes Naval Training Center. Tyler is a 2012 graduate of Oak Harbor High School and the son of Captain and Mrs. Bill Dodge of Oak Harbor, and currently stationed at Pacific Fleet Headquarters in Pearl Harbor, Hawaii. Tyler reported to the Defense Language Institute in Monterey, Calif., where he will be a cryptologist/linguist.

while growing up in San Antonio, Texas. He understands the odds against making it big in country music, but is more interested in just making it. “It’s a fun gig. It’s a fun job,” he said. “It wouldn’t be a job for me.” For the past two years, he’s performed in several Puget Sound area bars. He’s hoping his album will stimulate interest in his music. He will be selling CDs of his new album at the Oak Harbor Tavern. There is no cover charge for the performance. “It’s a big risk obviously,” Fischer said. “As cliche as it sounds, the bigger the risk, the bigger the reward.”

self from his past life and take a step toward a new beginning. “(My friend) said, ‘Here’s what you need to do. You need to separate yourself and get something that’s only you.’ Even my counselor said that, this nice lady from hospice. She said the same thing. She said to separate yourself because everything you’ve had to this point was you and Carla. She said now you need to separate and say, ‘OK, this is just JD because Carla’s gone. She’s not coming back in two weeks. She’s not going to get better.’ So you need to separate and say, ‘I need something that says this is me.’” That something turned into being a two-toned, 2009 Harley-Davidson Softtail Deluxe that he purchased for $22,500. Stewart started a new life with a new crowd that was unaware of his old one. He made new friends, joined the chapter, and became activities officer for a group of motorcycle enthusiasts with a passion for riding Harleys and enjoy spending time together. He got the courage

Stewart will be riding near the rear of the pack as Harley-Davidson riders take part in a parade through downtown at 6 p.m. Thursday, July 18. The parade route will include a trip down Midway Boulevard and Pioneer Way before veering down Ely Street and back to the Coachman Inn & Suites parking lot. “What this did for me, it brought me back to this new person, sort of the old new person,” Stewart said. “I was a new person because I was no longer J.D. and Carla. I was just J.D., the happy guy who rides a Harley. And the Harley makes you happy. How can you not be happy out there riding at 70 mph with the wind blowing through your hair, going ‘Whoooo!’” He said through all the black leather and behind those sun glasses are just regular folks. “H.O.G. is a great group of people,” he said. “We’re not the Sons of Anarchy. Oh God, we’re not that. That’s not the Hogs. The people who ride for H.O.G. are your everyday people. The bankers, the lawyers, people like me, baristas. It’s a group of real tight people.”

to date again and met a woman that would become his new wife, Angela. Eventually, the wackiness returned, and longtime friends and acquaintances got to see the old Stewart again at the Starbucks on Highway 20 near 7th Avenue. The guy buzzing around the drive-through window in the early morning hours. “My customers know that I’m this super wild crazy person with more energy at 4:30 than they’ve ever seen,” said Stewart, whose initials stand for James Duran. “They’ll say, ‘How can you be this energetic at 4 o’clock in the morning?’” It’s not caffeine, though Stewart does start his day with a four-shot cup of espresso with a pump of vanilla, two squirts of caramel, two Splendas and a splash of nonfat milk. He’s only a one-cup a day sort of guy. “I just call it my quad,” he said. “It just keeps my headaches at bay.” Stewart said he’s experienced a rebirth since he got involved with the Harley-Davidson group, which rekindled his love for motorcycles. And it led to the courage of finding his new love, Angela. They are celebrating their first anniversary this month.

The prosecution, however, argues that Lambert committed the murders after injecting methamphetamine, which may or may not have caused hallucinations.

Monday afternoon, Banks finished his presentation with jailhouse recordings of conversations — phone calls and in-person — between Lambert and his mother, Susan Lambert. Lambert is accused of killing her father, August Eisner, as well as his other grandfather, George Lambert. Both were 80 years old. It’s clear in the record-

ings that Susan Lambert is extremely sad and upset, but she doesn’t abandon her son. “You’re not getting anything from me. I love you Josh, but I hate what you did,” she said. “I want to make that very clear.” In one recording, Susan Lambert asks her son what he was “on” when he committed the crimes, but he responds that he “can’t talk about too many details.” “I DON’T know how I got to this point in the first place,” Lambert later said during his conversation with his mother. Her one-word response was: “Drugs.” He didn’t respond, but was quiet for moments before changing the subject. Joshua Lambert sounded surprised when she told him that the murders made national news. “It’s not your fault. It’s my fault,” he said. “There’s no sorry big enough.” He later called her and immediately told her she needs to dispose of “a dirty needle” in his bag on the side of the house. He said he wants to make sure a kid doesn’t get hurt. His mother wasn’t happy with him. “I BURIED one grandfather yesterday and I’m burying another today,” she said. “What do you want me to say to you?” Joshua Lambert called his mother on the day of her father’s funeral and asked her to say something for him. “Tell him I’m sorry and that I miss him,” he said. “That’s what I want to say to him.” He told his mother he was sorry for “the whole situation” and that he didn’t mean for it to happen. She blames him for choosing drugs and alcohol over his son, causing him to lose his temper for the only time during the recordings. IN THE FINAL recording, Susan Lambert asks her son why he thinks it’s OK to stab someone 30 times. “They weren’t dying right away and I couldn’t stand to watch them die slowly,” he said. Joshua Lambert said it wasn’t like in a movie, where someone drops dead after being stabbed in the lungs. He repeated, calmly, that he didn’t want them to die slowly and in pain. BANKS SPENT much of the day interviewing Detective Ed Wallace with the Island County Sheriff’s Office. Wallace was the lead detective on the case.

Wallace explained that Lambert contacted him from the jail and offered to help deputies find a shotgun he allegedly stole from his stepfather’s garage on the day before the murders. Lambert wanted $50 in exchange for his help. Wallace agreed and paid Lambert the money, but the gun was difficult to find. The detectives even took Lambert out of jail to help look for the gun he had hidden in brush near Oak Harbor. It was later found in the same vicinity. Wallace testified that Lambert also offered to write a confession in exchange for $50 and a cup of coffee. Wallace eventually agreed and gave him the $50. “I was reminded just prior to the start of trial that I neglected to give him the cup of coffee,” he said, adding that Lambert got his coffee on July 3. WALLACE READ Lambert’s confession to the jury. Lambert wrote that he was hallucinating at the time of the crimes and that he thought the only way to save his son from being tortured and killed was to get guns. He wrote that he didn’t want to kill his grandfathers, but that he would have killed anyone to save his son from “this tortuous death.” “I would not of killed my grandpas to save my own life, but I would to save my child’s,” Wallace read, “and I also know that if my hallucination was real they would have gladly given their lives for his. I don’t want you to think the hallucinations ordered me to kill my grandpas. “It was honestly the fastest way to a firearm, to save my boy.” LAMBERT ALSO wrote that neither of his grandfathers were scared and fought him bravely. “They showed me to keep fighting to your last breath, even if you know you gonna be dead in a minute or so,” Wallace read from the confession. Lambert wrote that he had to tie up his aunt so she couldn’t call anyone. “Even though I thought I was legally allowed to kill on my mission I didn’t know if every patrol officer had the kind of security clearance to know that,” Wallace read. Lambert wrote that he was sorry and misses his “papas.” “I think about them every day, just like I used to talk to them in my head all the time before they died, especially when I was in prison last time,” Wallace read. “I love my papas.”

Find answers from God in solitude, not in today’s technology FAITHFUL LIVING By JOAN BAY KLOPE If you want to know what God wants you to do, ask Him, and He will gladly tell you, for He is always ready to give a bountiful supply of wisdom to all who ask. – James 1:5, The Living Bible I am a member of the Sirius/XM satellite radio nation, and have been for some time now. I particularly like how I can hurry out the door and listen to the same international news feeds I was watching on my TV while getting ready at home. I also like the fact that with one stoke of a button I am catapulted back to the 70s, where the sounds of James Taylor, The Rolling Stones, or the Bee Gees take me to a time when I was a teenager and music filled my world. We have stereo wars in my car, on occasion, when my husband takes his place behind the wheel. He likes the 70s station but can’t get enough of channel 14, featuring bluegrass. Up goes the volume and his fingers briskly strum the wheel, for he is an amateur banjo player when he’s not helping Navy pilots avoid hitting birds. A few measures into the song and he’s on stage instead of driving north on State Highway 20. He’s particularly fond of the fellow who shares banjo strumming techniques on Sunday mornings as we make our way to church. I can usually manage two songs or 10 minutes of instruction. Then I’m pleading, along with anyone else riding along with us, “Channel 7! Channel 20! We need a break!” I’m also a fan of Netflix and when I’d doing mindless work around the house I’m watching “The West Wing.” I’ve got to admit something: I can’t get enough of the Emmy award winning series that chronicles the triumphs and travails of the Josiah Bartlet administration. I’m presently viewing the fourth season and President Bartlet has just won his second presidential election. Stealing away from his ninth inaugural ball, he says to his White House senior staff in a nearby hallway, “Never doubt that a small group can change the world.” This week I’ve thought about my world and the book of James. To Bartlet’s comment I’ll add, “If you want to make your world a better place, ask God for some marching orders.” In fact, why not harness the power of a praying people and ask God the tough questions: What ARE we to do? How are we to pray? What explanations are we to give our children about life events? How are we to work within our churches and local organizations? What are we to be blogging, tweeting, posting? To ask the questions we must, however, step away from XM radio and Netflix. Instead, let’s walk the beach. Open our sacred books. Pray with a friend. Meet over coffee. Dialog on Facebook. Take sail. Attend a public meeting. Read our grandchildren bedtime stories and pray over their tiny, nodding heads that we love so tenderly. Let’s listen and then let’s act.

On the ballot CONTINUED FROM A1 deserve a chance to vote on this levy,” Price Johnson said. Commissioner Kelly Emerson was not present at the meeting. As proposed, the measure carries a four-year sunset clause and mandates that every penny be spent on law-and-justice needs. If passed, the levy would also prohibit the commissions from reducing existing funding from 2013 levels. The $1.9-million levy would hike property taxes by 17 cents per $1,000 of assessed valuation — about $42.50 for a $250,000 home. It would raise the total rate to an estimated 81 cents per $1,000 of assessed valuation ‚Ä쬆about $202.50 for the same

home. The adopted resolution is a modified version of a recommendation from the Law and Justice Council earlier this year. That proposal sought $2.6 million in funding and had a fiveyear sunset. Although it’s not quite as much as law-and-justice leaders had requested, Island County Sheriff Mark Brown said he is relieved a measure is now headed for a public vote. He added that he is not happy about having to ask for a tax hike but said his department is in sore need of additional manpower. “I need people and I need them badly,” Brown said. “It’s urgent that we grow this department. ... I just want to start that process.” According to Johnson, a series of recent community meetings led her to believe that many in the community feel 2008

Tractor chase CONTINUED FROM A1 Hill near Wind Dancer Place. He was armed with a shotgun, a pellet gun and was allegedly intoxicated. According to a sheriff’s office report, the incident began a short time earlier at a home on Keystone Hill Road. Blodgett’s aunt warned authorities that her nephew was intoxicated and just stole their neighbor’s tractor. She also reported a shotgun was missing from the house. A few minutes later, another 9-1-1 caller reported seeing Blodgett on the tractor

and traveling northbound on Highway 20 near Island Transit’s headquarters. Police located the man at Jacobs Road and attempted to pull him over with no success. Another officer got out of his car at the Terry Road intersection and tried to wave him down. “The driver smiled and waved at him and continued driving,” Undersheriff Kelly Mauck said Monday. The officer jumped back into his patrol car and lit out after the renegade tractor, which was traveling about

This John Deere farm tractor was stolen Sunday and was part of low-speed chase down State Highway 20. 15 mph, according to police reports. Another officer soon joined the chase and the entire procession — the tractor and three pursuing patrol cars — passed through the

Coupeville intersection. With the shotgun stowed on the ride side of the rear fender, Blodgett was swerving back and forth across the lane and waving at passing motorists, according to the

staffing levels were acceptable. Restoring those numbers require only $1.9 million, rather than the $2.6 million recommended. She also said a sunset of four years, as opposed to the requested five, provides for greater government accountability and focus to achieve outlined objectives. Finally, she felt the community expressed concern at the public meetings that the money would be used for purposes other than law and justice. “The language is very clear that this is a law-and-justice levy only and that it’s not funding additional services,” Johnson said. According to Price Johnson, the prosecutor’s office will draft the exact language for the ballot. It must be submitted to the Auditor’s Office no later than Aug. 6. report. Blodgett allegedly crossed the center and fog line numerous times and an officer positioned himself in the middle of the road to warn oncoming drivers. A fourth deputy, arriving from the north, stopped ahead of Blodgett in the southbound lane. But instead of giving up, Blodgett allegedly veered toward him, the police report said. The officer and several other vehicles “were forced to drive in reverse to avoid being hit by Blodgett,” the report said. Blodgett then swerved back into the northbound lane but the patrol deputy continued on in reverse. The chase finally ended when Blodgett pulled over and put his hands on his

head just north of Sherman Road, more than five miles from where he started. He was taken into custody and, according to the police report, became “extremely belligerent, partially resistant and yelling profanities” at deputies. Officers also reported “a strong odor of intoxicants coming from Blodgett’s breath as he spoke.” A search of the tractor revealed a “357 magnum replica pellet gun.” The shotgun was not loaded but Blodgett allegedly had several unused shells in his pocket. Blodgett faces felony charges of eluding police and vehicle theft. As of Monday, Blodgett was still being held at the Island County jail.

Former state rep. dies on lake By BEN WATANABE Staff reporter

Former state Rep. Kip Tokuda went fishing on Deer Lake Saturday morning. A heart attack claimed his life while he was angling from his small kayak. “He was not submerged, he was still on the kayak,” said Robert Bishop, Island County’s coroner. Tokuda was 66. First responders arrived shortly after 11:30 a.m. Attempts by South Whidbey Fire/EMS, Whidbey General Hospital and a doctor on vacation in the area to revive Tokuda were unsuccessful. Paul Busch, assistant chief of South Whidbey Fire/ EMS, said Tokuda’s kayak tipped over after the heart attack began, sending him into the water. He was able to yell for help, however, and was heard by at least two people also at the lake. Someone in a boat rowed out to him and tried to pull him from the water. Tokuda was unconscious at the time, however. During the attempted rescue, the person in the row boat also tipped over. Another boater retrieved both people and took them to the public boat launch

as first responders arrived. Busch estimates he was on the water about 15 minutes after the heart attack started. “He was unresponsive from the beginning,” Bishop said. “They had really good CPR and he was completely unresponsive.” Tokuda, of Seattle, has a vacation home in Freeland. He was known for work in the House of Representatives as a champion of racial justice and youth empowerment from 1994 to 2002. The Seattle Democrat, a son of Japanese American parents, was interned during World War II. He founded the Asian Community Leadership Foundation of Seattle and was a past president of the Japanese American Citizens League. It was not a busy day on the popular lake in Clinton. Busch said he saw only the three boats on the water, the kayak, row boat and motor boat. Though he did not drown, Tokuda wasn’t wearing a life jacket. “We’ve had kayakers who’ve had heart attacks before,” Bishop said. “It just happens.”
