Group forms to promote hospital bond By Nathan Whalen Staff Reporter

Volunteers promoting a ballot measure for a bond to finance an update and expansion of Whidbey General Hospital are focusing their efforts on North Whidbey Island. The Friends of Whidbey General Hospital, a volunteer group tasked with promoting the $50-million bond, recently formed and conducted a campaign kickoff at Coupeville Town Park. Around 30 people came together to gather signs to post throughout the island, learn specifics about the bond and answer questions. “We need to bring this hospital up to a level that matches how good the doctors are,” said Brian Jones, an Oak Harbor resident who is part of the Friends of Whidbey General Hospital group and is coordinating the group’s speaking engagements. Joe Mosolino, an Oak Harbor resident who is president of the group, said promotion efforts for the ballot measure will concentrate in the Oak Harbor and North Whidbey area. When hospital officials ran the bond two years ago, the majority of North Whidbey residents rejected the $50 million bond. He also noted that a majority of voters in the Langley area and along Saratoga Road also rejected the bond. In May 2011, 55.49 percent of Whidbey Island voters apMosolino proved the hospital bond, which is short of the 60 percent supermajority required for approval. Hospital officials are asking voters to consider a similar proposal during the November general election. Voters will consider whether to approve a $50-million bond that will fund construction of a new wing that will include 39 single-patient rooms. If approved, the property owners will pay 32.2 cents per $1,000 assessed property value. Property owners currently pay 9 cents per $1,000 tax for the hospital’s maintenance and operations levy. The construction project will be divided into three parts. The first would be construction of a new parking area that will be located behind the hospital’s Coupeville campus.

A historic barn in the heart of Ebey’s Landing National Historical Reserve is getting a much-needed facelift thanks to the help of a handful of college students and volunteers. Students participating in the University of Oregon’s Pacific Northwest Field School visited Ebey’s Landing last week to install a cedar shake roof on the Comstock Barn, which is located off Engle Road south of Coupeville. Shannon Sardell, director of the Pacific Northwest Field School, said the barn is a significant part of the reserve’s historic landSee BARN, page 16

Officials from the Washington State Department of Transportation want residents’ opinions on how a proposed construction project will affect Ebey’s Landing National Historical Reserve. Plans currently call for the closing of the intersections of Old Smith Prairie Road and Parker Road with Highway 20. Traffic on Parker Road would be funneled over to Morris Road where it would intersect with the highway. The three intersections are located between Island Transit’s headquarters and Outlying Field and are within the confines of the reserve. A public meeting is sched-

uled for 5 p.m., Tuesday, Aug. 27, in the Commons at Coupeville Middle and High School. Shane Spahr, project engineer with the Washington State Department of Transportation, said the proposal is currently undergoing environmental review and the public comment is needed on how the construction would influence archeological and historical elements in the area. He said the department of transportation is talking with officials from Island Transit, the Pacific Rim Institute and from Ebey’s Landing National Historical Reserve about the project. Lisbeth Cort, interim reserve manager, said areas of concern include the lighting that will be used for roads, the amount of concrete used for the bus stop and the possible location of a trailhead. If an adverse effect is determined to have been found, then the state Department of Transportation, the Federal

Highway Administration and the Washington State Department of Archeology and Historic Preservation will negotiate a memorandum of understanding. That agreement will document the project’s history, outline the impacts and lay out a mitigation plan. In addition to the alterations around Parker Road, plans also include adding a left turn lane from the highway into the solid waste transfer station located west of the Island Transit headquarters. Transportation officials have accumulated funding from a variety of sources to help pay for the project. They received $500,000 from Island County, $1.8 million Federal Scenic Byways Grant, $2.5 million in federal funds and $100,000 in state funds. Spahr said the project should go out to bid in early 2015 with construction beginning in the summer of 2015. For more information, go to www.wsdot.wa.gov/projects/ sr20/morristojacobs

Island County relaxes burn ban As of Aug. 17, Island County’s burn ban in place will be relaxed from the total burn ban put in place July 31. Residents may now have recreational and cooking fires in approved fire pits lined with concrete or metal, such as in established campgrounds. Outdoor cooking is also allowed on a propane barbecue, a briquette barbecue or a self-contained camp stove. A full ban is still in effect for the burning of natural debris, even with a permit. Island County Sheriff Mark Brown, who

doubles as the fire marshal, updated his mandate after consulting with fire districts and the Northwest Clean Air Agency. Brown said the combination of reduced moisture levels, low humidity and sunny weather, along with the reduced availability of firefighting resources, increased the risk of fire within the county and spurred the original ban. The ban will remain in effect until further notice.

Students build connection to World War I vets Nathan Whalen Staff Reporter

Several elementary school students spent the past two weeks building a connection to deceased veterans who fought in World War I. They are pouring through archives and other sources to find out all the biographical information about Island County veterans who served in World War I. The youngsters are participating in a history camp sponsored by the Island County Historical Society, the Whidbey Island Daughters of the American Revolution and the Janet Enzmann archives. Two of the budding archivists discovered the veterans they would learn about at a cemetery in Stanwood. Ten-year-old Genesis Chigbrow is learning about Olaf Berlie, who was born in Minnesota and died in the Camano Island area. Chigbrow, who will start the fifthgrade next month, learned that Berlie, who was of Norwegian ancestry, eventually moved to Tacoma where he operated a fuel company. A visit to the website, www.findagrave.com, also yielded another surprise. “I found his parents’ gravestone with a picture of them,” Chigbrow said. Aleksandr Wellner, who

Crandall, who lived from 1887-1973. Following an eight-month service in the Great War, the Hastings, Minn., native was a traveling salesman and a shoe store salesman who moved to King County before settling on Camano Island around 1940. While Wellner and Chigbrow were researching, another student was busy repairing records on file at the museum. Eliska Jelinek, who is Peters’ granddaughter, used heat-set tape and an iron to mend a 1917 edition of the Island County Times. “You always want to mend from the inside,” Jelinek said while fixing a tear to the

newspaper. The student research will be used by the Daughters of the American Revolution, who is producing a book. Peters said the group is profiling the county veterans who served in the Spanish American War and World War I. So far they have identified 325 veterans. She said organizers hope to have the book produced in 2017, which is the centennial anniversary marking the end of hostilities in World War I.

Annual vacation sparks memories of new home Going to the ocean as a child was always a lot of fun. While my father flew kites, my brother and I would play in the sand, look for sea shells and test our limits on how Megan Hansen far we went out in the Some perspective surf. My mother would lay on a blanket, snoozing or reading a book. We went at least once a year, if not more. My dad bought his first kite when I was just an infant. When I was maybe 10 years old my older brother turned the movie “Jaws” on. We happened to watch it just a few days before a trip to the ocean. As we’re driving out onto the sand, our excitement building, my brother reminded me to watch out for sharks. He had a gay old time out in the surf while I sat on the sand. My mother was so frustrated by my suddenly developed fear of the water, she dragged me out kicking and screaming into the surf. That fear faded somewhat and the most vivid memory of the incident is my mother pulling wet dollar bills out of her pocket. As you read this, I will most likely be out in the sand, flying a kite with my dad at the Long Beach Kite Festival. We go every year as an annual tradition. We have a standing reservation at the same campground in our favorite camping site. It’s one of my favorite places to go. When I moved to Whidbey Island last year I saw a lot of similarities between the two. There’s the obvious ocean aspect, but there are small things that make this island remind me of my favorite place. Everytime I go down to Kapaws for a Mountain Blackberry ice cream cone, it takes me back to Long Beach, Wash., where a similar ice cream shop, Scoopers, serves the very same ice cream. As I’m enjoying a Scoopers’ cone this week, I’m curious to see if it starts tasting like a little bit of home. — Megan Hansen is editor of The Whidbey Examiner.

Help deserved Editor, A recent report on surveys from the June Central Whidbey OLF Coupeville meeting indicates responses were split. The actual surveys say differently. The overwhelming majority of responses from Central Whidbey residents showed they wanted the OLF closed and/or Growlers. This report was skewed by the inclusion of preprinted responses received from outside Central Whidbey following newspaper reports about the meeting. They seem to have been organized by former County Commissioner Mac McDowell and others. McDowell submitted his

own lengthy response despite living nowhere near the outlying field. McDowell’s response can be summed up thus: The Navy has nowhere else to practice; current operations are less than during Vietnam; and people near the OLF should have realized operations might someday increase and do not deserve any relief. Those same spurious arguments are found in most of these preprinted responses. First, where is the Navy practicing now if there is nowhere else? Not at the outlying field. Secondly, do we really have to resort to the halcyon days of the Vietnam War to find operational numbers to

support current Growler operations? What about all the intervening decades? What is most hypocritical, though, is McDowell’s argument that impacted citizens deserve no help. Public record shows that when the APZ zone was established in North Whidbey, McDowell claimed it was to prevent development encroachment upon the base. Yes, residents lost property rights, but for the greater good of keeping Ault Field open. Like now, McDowell showed no sympathy for anyone living near the base. That stance, however, didn’t stop McDowell from arranging a public purchase

of 17 acres near Ault from the Don Boyer family. McDowell personally worked to get that one property purchased using a mix of Navy, state, county and Oak Harbor funds. When a Navy appraisal came in at $1.5 million, McDowell was instrumental in getting it raised. Ultimately, the public paid the Boyers $2.2 million for 17 acres of vacant land. Ask yourselves this question — how come the Boyers deserved this kind of assistance if the residents of Central Whidbey, who aren’t asking for a dime, don’t deserve any help whatsoever?

Following replacement of the water line and installation of a sewer lift station, the road surface will be reconstructed, widened and repaved. Included in this project is a paved walkway along one side of the road and stormwater management. The roadway portion of the project is budgeted at $402,100 and we have been approved for another federal grant for $347,806 toward that project. The Island Regional Transportation Policy Organization, of which I am a member, is responsible for distribution of certain federal road funds through a competitive application process. For this fiscal year, we emphasized road maintenance projects, rather than new construction, in recognition of the limited funds available on a local level for road improvements.

The project is budgeted at $137,300 and $113,300 is federal grant funds. • Seventhth Street NW to Alexander (on the side of the Methodist Church and around the corner past the library) will also be resurfaced. This project is eligible for state funds from the Transportation Improvement Board. A total of $35,280 of the $42,000 budget will be funded by the state. In total, $504,400 of projects are scheduled, with almost 75 percent of the funding coming from federal and state grants. The town budget was able to cover $129,720. Our local funds are being well leveraged to complete much more work than we could have managed on our own. Town Engineer Greg Cane was instrumental in obtaining the grant funds for these projects. As we have done in the past, Coupeville’s projects were bid through Island County. Combining our projects with planned county projects means that we receive the benefit of lower prices bid on higher quantities.

Island County commissioners to address Port to consider community concerns over shoreline plan cash machine at Coupeville Wharf By Janis Reid Staff reporter

10 percent of surcharge would benefit port district By Nathan Whalen Staff Reporter

Visitors to downtown Coupeville might find an easier time trying to find a cash machine in the future. Officials for the Port of Coupeville are considering a plan to place an ATM on port property. The small port district received a proposal from Premier Merchants Group, based in Kearney, Neb., to place the cash machine in the breezeway of the Coupeville Wharf. People using the machine would pay a $2.50 surcharge. Of that amount, the Port of Coupeville would receive 25 cents per transaction, according to the proposal the Nebraska-based company submitted to the Port of Coupeville. Executive Director Jim Patton highlighted the advantages and disadvantages of having such a machine at the end of the pier. He said the ATM would draw people to the wharf building, which would benefit the businesses, and the Port of Coupeville would receive revenue through the surcharge. Commissioner Marshall Bronson noted that there

isn’t an ATM in downtown Coupeville. The closest cash machine is located at the Whidbey Island Bank branch on North Main Street. Bronson said that an additional ATM is a necessity during the summer months. He added that the proposal might be a good time to evaluate the security at the Coupeville Wharf. Commissioner Benye Weber seemed a bit more skeptical about the proposal. She noted that large events — the Coupeville Arts and Crafts Festival, the Penn Cove Water Festival and the Penn Cove Mussel Festival — offered a cash machine that was located in the Coupeville Recreation Hall. Weber said the 10 percent arrangement the Port of Coupeville would receive from the surcharge is “minimal” and Patton should try and negotiate a better rate. She questioned whether the fee the port would receive would offset the additional costs the port may have to pay for security improvements. Patton said he will contact the port’s insurance provider to find out if the insurer has any concerns and he will contact the port’s security company to find out what improvements to the wharf that may need to happen before an ATM can be placed. He hopes to have an update available for the next commissioners meeting, scheduled 10 a.m., Wednesday, Sept. 11 at the Coupeville Public Library.

Island County commissioners now have the community feedback on a proposed Shoreline Master Plan. The comments were gathered during a public hearing in May and presented to the commissioners last week by the state Department of Ecology. The commissioners must address any concerns and submit solutions to the state Department of Ecology by a deadline of Sept. 23. Island County Planner Brad Johnson, who presented the documents to the commissioners this week, said the Department of Ecology gathered 339 comments from 79 individuals and 16 organizations. In keeping with previously reported feedback, Ecology officials said they received comments expressing concerns that primarily involved four issues: nonconforming structures, netpen aquaculture, shellfish grower requirements and public access. While there was little discussion about the feedback during the commissioners’ work session, the Planning Department briefly addressed the non-conforming structure issue. The commissioners reviewed the comments and continued the discussion during their Wednesday, Aug. 21, work session that took place after the Whidbey Examiner went to press. County staff are expected to make offer recommen-

According to state Ecology’s feedback, Johnson said, there seems to be widespread concern that the new Shoreline Master Plan is more restrictive than the old one with respect to nonconforming structures on shorelines. However, he said, this is not the case. In fact, Johnson said, the new master plan is less restrictive in a number of respects. For example, he said, the old master plan stated that, if a non-conforming structure is damaged or destroyed, it must be brought into compliance if the damage exceeds 75 percent of the structure’s value. Under the proposed

master plan, all legally existing residences are allowable and the 75 percent rule applies only to commercial structures, not single family homes. With regard to net pen aquaculture, Johnson said, the majority of those who provided feedback supported the county’s strict regulations on fish farms. However, the commission will need to address the concerns of local shellfish growers on some of the new provisions. Lastly, Johnson said, the public comment was split down the middle on the issue of public access to shorelines. Some want to ensure public access throughout Whidbey Island and the county. Others want to protect their residential properties from public access.

Adopted by the state Legislature in 1972, the Shorelines Act requires municipalities to adopt master programs that guide development on and around the waterfront, including lakes and rivers. The legislation’s aim is to reduce the impact of development on shorelines. A new draft of the shoreline management guidelines was adopted in 2003 which required all 39 counties to update their Shoreline Master Plans, all of which must be completed by 2014. Once the board of commissioners compile and sumbit its response, the Department of Ecology has 30 days to issue a decision letter in which it can approve the plan as-is, approve with changes or deny the plan.

Hospital leaders take informational route concerning bond By Nathan Whalen Staff Reporter

Coupeville residents Jack and Sue Tingstad hand out promotional signs encouraging voters to support a $50 million-bond that will finance an update to Whidbey General Hospital.

Hospital: volunteers rally support From page 1 current parking lot used by doctors and staff will be home of the new patient wing. Construction of the patient wing comprises the second part of the proposed project. Hospital officials have said the new wing is needed to comply with federal regulations, which include privacy, patient handling and infection control. The current patient wing was opened in 1971. The third stage of the project is to transform the current patient rooms into clinic space. Mosolino has experience participating in successful bond campaigns. He was a member

of Citizens for Better Schools, which promoted a bond to renovate Oak Harbor High School that voters ultimately approved in 2006. Members of the Friends of Whidbey General Hospital were busy gathering fact sheets and dispersing the 1,500 signs that will be scattered throughout Whidbey Island. A Facebook page is set up and Mosolino encouraged volunteers to get photographs of the promotional signs being placed. The group has to move fast considering there is less than three months remaining before the November election. “What we have is a lot of work and a short time to do it,” Mosolino said during the campaign rally.

Whidbey General Hospital leaders are taking steps to ensure employees follow state laws during an election season where voters will decide whether to approve a $50-million bond that will finance an expansion and updating of the hospital’s campus. That bond is appearing on the November ballot and needs to pass by a 60 percent supermajority. Trish Rose, spokesperson for Whidbey General Hospital, said during a recent hospital commissioners’ meeting that she sent information to staff about how they can inform people of the proposal. Staff may educate patients and the public about

outlining the specifics of the bond is available on the hospital’s website, www. whidbeygen.org A volunteer group independent of the hospital, known as the Friends of Whidbey General Hospital, recently formed with the task of encouraging voters to support the bond. If approved, the $50-million bond will fund construction of a new wing, a new parking area and a renovation that will transform the current patient wing into clinic space. The bond would cost homeowners 32 cents per $1,000 assessed property value and it would be paid off in 25 years. Property owners currently pay 9 cents per $1,000 levy that funds operations at Whidbey General Hospital.

facts concerning the bond, but they have to promote the bond on their own time and use their own computer and resources. A jurisdiction can present “factual and balanced” information surrounding a bond, but it can’t be promotional, said Lori Anderson, spokeswoman with the Washington State Public Disclosure Commission. She said the hospital should dispense that information through its normal lines of communication such as a website. It can be a fine line between informational and promotional, Anderson said. If the hospital officials do make presentations to community groups, she recommended that leaders have their facts developed first. Rose said information

Fair well

Whidbey Island Area Fair hits stride last weekend with rides, animal exhibitions, music, food and more By Ben Watanabe South Whidbey Record

The lights are gone, the smell of fried food has wafted away and the shrill sound of shrieking children on rides has vanished. Just like that, the 89th annual Whidbey Island Area Fair is over. Four days of 4-H contests, horseback riding, chicken olympics, stage performances, curly fries and Yo Yo rides wrapped up Sunday evening, but not before a horde of people flooded the fairgrounds over the weekend. A hundred or so people lined the streets from downtown Langley along Cascade and Camano avenues to the fair for the parade Saturday. Spearheaded by grand marshals Bob and Connie Alexander, more than 20 entries walked and rode, in cars and on horseback, their way to the fair. There were political en-

tries such as Langley Mayor Fred McCarthy in an old truck and South Whidbey School District director candidate Rocco Gianni on foot with his family and supporters wearing “Let’s ‘Rock’ Education” T-shirts. Parade regulars like the 4-H groups Knight Riders and Centaurs trotted by on horseback, and the Happy Hounds group cruised along with its canines. Some of the paraders were motivated by other factors, such as a group of children and one dog being towed behind a tractor in carts like a train. Many children, like Langley brothers Crispin Dolde, 6, and Liam Dolde, 10, came prepared. They brought bags to stash candy from paraders who were busy flinging taffy, butterscotch and chocolate at spectators. When the Goose group came by and someone in a gorilla suit offered the brothers a banana, they

They, like many young fair-goers, had their sights set on something more exciting than a potassium-laden treat. Liam Dolde said he was excited for the Gravitron on Sunday, which looks like a flying saucer and uses centrifugal force to pin the people inside to the wall. He would have been disappointed upon seeing the Gravitron not at the fair this year. There was also another notable absence, that of a Ferris wheel. Sales were reportedly strong in the food booths. As of Saturday morning before the anticipated lunch rush, the Democrats of Island County hot dog and fries booth sold 100 hot dogs and expected to sell another 300, bringing in about $3,500. “I was expecting it to be a little stressful,” said Aaron Simpson, the group’s chairman. One booth volunteer, Karen Vanderbilt, wore her political allegiance on her shirt with a donkey pin that had “56” on it. The pin was from when her mother volunteered for the unsuccessful 1956 presidential campaign of Adlai Stevenson. The nearby American Legion booth was adorned with what looked like donkeys, though they were cutouts of horses to go with the fair’s theme of “Blossom to Awesome.” Those decora-

Through three days of the fair, the Legion booth managed $12,000 in sales, about $1,600 of which came from

hamburgers. Beyond the fair’s main entrance, which led to the food area and main stage, awaited exhibits and displays by 4-H and other groups. One of the most interactive displays was the underwater robotics presentation by South Whidbey’s youth team, Atlantis, Inc. It won a regional competition earlier this year and

competed in an international contest. Atlantis, Inc. members showed children how to pilot remotely operated vehicles, also called bots, in a small pool outside. “I love seeing their eyes light up grabbing it (the controls) for the first time,” said Hannah McConnaughey.

Wolves work year-round to improve skills Athletes play for Islanders when not representing Coupeville HS By Jim Waller Staff Reporter

The Coupeville High School soccer team begins practice next Monday, but that doesn’t mean all of the Wolves have been sitting around since the 2012 season ended last November. For five Coupeville players, there is no off season. When not playing for the Wolves, the five (Erin Rosenkranz, Mickayla LeVine, Jen-

nifer Spark, Jacki Ginnings and Victoria Wellman) are part of the Islanders GU-18 club which competes in the North Puget Sound League December through March. When that season wraps up, they continue to practice throughout the summer and take part in several tournaments. Their summer concluded when they defended their title in the Strawberry Classic in Marysville Aug. 2-4. This busy schedule is not a burden, according to team captains Rosenkranz and Becca Pabona and Kenzie Perry of Oak Harbor. As a matter of fact, it is a pleasure to meet and play with athletes from other high schools, they said. The team also includes nine players from Oak Harbor (Pabona, Perry, Ayla Muller, Selena Medina,

Vivien Valles, Alyssa Cross, Zoe Bassett, Paige Waterman and Morgan Zylstra) and one from South Whidbey (Kendra Warwick). Rosenkranz said, “It’s great to get to know people and the different personalities; it’s a lot of fun. (I play because) I want to have fun and look back and have good memories and enjoy the season.” Perry said, “It’s nice to know players from all over the island.” She enjoys the bond they have developed: “When running sprints, it’s nice to have someone to soak up the sorrow with.” Pabona said it’s a great way to “build friendships” while acquiring more soccer skill and knowledge of the game. She added, “Friendships are important. It’s important

to interact well with teammates, you can’t have success without it.” In addition to friendships and the joy of the game, the captains said, they play select soccer to hone their skills and stay in shape, and, like everybody else, snare a few wins. Perry said, “I know it is a cliche, but we want to get better every game. Even if we lose, it’s good to hear from the coaches that we improved.” For coach Sean LeVine of Coupeville, the commitment to soccer and what the players learn from that commitment is far more than trying to get wins: “One obvious goal is to help these players improve at soccer; however, we recognize that not all of these players will become the next Alex Morgan or Hope Solo, so we have a strong focus on instilling and encouraging responsibility, accountability, leadership, integrity, sports-

manship, goal setting, confidence, friendship and putting the team before yourself.” The players are required to carry a list of the team’s

core values with their gear. Coach LeVine said, “Our goal is to help the players to be more than just contributors to society, but exceptional people within their community.” He noted that most of the players are honor students,

play multiple sports and are active in school government and community programs like Big Brothers/Big Sisters. “We want the girls to leave this experience more confident and with a belief that with hard work and maintained focus they can accomplish anything,” he said. LeVine began coaching soccer at 18 in 1995 when he coached his brother’s BU-12 team. He has coached this current crew for three years: “This is an experienced and tight-knit group.” He added, “I did get to coach my 4-year-old daughter for the first time this year, and I get to coach my 16-year old daughter for two more years, which are huge perks.” A perk for the Coupeville players is they are more than primed for the 2013 high school season.

Coupeville artist transforms salvaged wood By Ron Newberry Staff reporter

Jim Short can create a lot of things with his hands. Just not miracles. He figures he’ll make a dent, but doesn’t expect to move mountains as he prepares to unveil the workshop where he performs his woodturning magic. He’s one of 31 artists participating in the Whidbey Working Artists Summer Art Studio Tour, which runs on back-to-back weekends beginning Aug. 24-25. Short’s workshop is the single-car garage at his home in Coupeville. He jokes that the current state of his cluttered garage is “chaotic” and “near dangerous,” serving as part workshop and part storage unit with wood shavings to boot. “Somebody the other day said that cleaning up your shop is for people who are too lazy to go look for stuff,” Short said. “That’s kind of my situation.” Short, a career carpenter, has held a lifelong fascination with wood. He works with wood in his trade, building custom cabinets or fixing furniture or other repairs. And he plays with wood as a hobby, using a lathe to turn it while he applies a

bowl gouge. The finished product is often an art piece shaped as a bowl or vase. He also makes boxes and other containers with lids. Short, 64, said woodturning can turn into an obsession. “That happens to woodturners a lot,” he said. “It’s really engaging to take a piece of a tree and cut it open and discover all the different patterns and designs and things. The whole process of turning is almost addictive. It’s almost an immediate result in what you do. The process is very attractive.” The process includes hunting for the right type of wood. Short is always on the lookout for salvageable wood. He likes working with green madrona. “I like how it shrinks up and contorts,” he said. He’ll work with hardwood and fruitwood. He said he enjoys wood from garry oaks and yews. Instead of jumping in his van to look for wood, he relies on other senses. The ring of a phone might mean an opportunity someone wants to tell him about. And there are other sounds he listens for. “When you hear a chainsaw running, you say, ‘What’s up?’” Short

said, “and you just keep your eyes open. Wood is laying around all over, more than you can really deal with. It’s pretty exciting.” Short’s art is laying around all over, too. He said he has about 20 bowls drying in his garage and another 40 stored elsewhere. He said he only started selling his art pieces about six or seven years ago and considers it more of a hobby than a money-making venture. His pieces may be seen at the Penn Cove Gallery on Front Street in downtown Coupeville, or viewed on-

line at www.penncovegallery.com Woodturning is a passion, and he’s appreciative that his wife, Judy Moore, is supportive. Moore, who teaches nursing at Skagit Valley College’s Oak Harbor campus, is a creative artist herself, involved with fiber arts. “She’s quite encouraging,” Short said. “She’s very tolerant of all the wood chips that get tracked into the house and all the debris outside.” Short’s workshop will be open to the public during both weekends of the self-guided free artists’ studio

tour. The second weekend, which covers more of Central and North Whidbey, is Aug. 31-Sept. 2. The tours are from 10 a.m.-5 p.m. Initially apprehensive, Short said he has come to enjoy sharing his love for wood with visitors and showing them how he makes his art pieces. He is a member of the Mount Vernonbased Northwest Washington Woodturners, a chapter of the American Association of Woodturners. Plus, there are other benefits of the tour. Short is forced to tidy up his workshop. “Last year was the first time I had it at my place,” he said. “There were horizontal surfaces exposed in the garage that had never been seen before. There were vast expanses of the

Picnic brings in money for preservation By Nathan Whalen Staff Reporter

Around 170 people gathered at the Ferry House over the weekend to help preservation efforts within Ebey’s Landing National Historical Reserve. They enjoyed a “Picnic on the Prairie” Saturday that raised money for the Ebey’s Forever Fund, which is a pot of money that pays for preservation projects on the hundreds of historic buildings located within the reserve. Although a tally is still underway, it looks like organizers will raise around $15,000, said Kyle Waterman, executive director of the Friends of Ebey’s Landing National Historical Reserve, which organized the picnic. He was quick to highlight the $5,000 donation Whidbey Island Bank contributed to the fund on top of the money raised during Saturday’s event. People attending the prai-

rie picnic enjoyed listening to music, hearing an educational program and touring the Ferry House, which is normally not open to the public, Waterman said. The Friends of Ebey’s group recently formed and members are trying to raise $75,000 by the end of the year. They need to raise that amount to match the amount an anonymous donor has made, Waterman said, adding it’s the second year the donor has offered the same challenge. Fundraising to meet the goal is moving forward. He said the friends group is more than half way to its goal. “We’re optimistic we’re going to meet it again this year too,” Waterman said. The fund this year donated $100,000 for a dozen projects. This year’s recipients included the Comstock Barn, the Van Dam house, the Crockett Farm motor shed and the old county courthouse. For more information about the Friends of Ebey’s Landing National Historical Reserve, contact Waterman at 360-678-6084 or email friends ofebeys@gmail.com Donations can be sent to Friends of Ebey’s Landing National Historical Reserve, P.O. Box 958, Coupeville, WA 98239.

Barn: Students save, protect historic structure From page 1 scape and, until recently, was at risk for demolition. “The barn was in desperate need of repair,” Sardell said. The Comstock Barn was constructed in 1934-35 by Freeman Boyer, Sr. on land owned by the Comstock family. It was originally used for sheep and then it became a squash storehouse. The historic structure is currently owned by Marshall and Judy English. Students and volunteers were busy replacing the cedar shake roof and windows. They will return in early September to continue their work. Graduate students, undergraduate students, concerned citizens, parks staff and historic architects comprised this year’s field school. Field school members took a break

from their work Thursday to attend a workshop conducted by Amy McCauley, a traditional sash joiner who owns Oculus Fine Carpentry based in Portland. She demonstrated how to glaze historic windows without the benefit of power tools. The University of Oregon-based field school visits Washington state every three years. They last visited Ebey’s Landing in 2002 to complete projects at the Jacob Ebey Blockhouse and the Ferry House. The project on the Comstock Barn is the latest of several field schools that occurred over the summer in Ebey’s Landing. The Trust Board of Ebey’s Landing, along with the Port of Coupeville, organized a field school where volunteers installed new siding on the south wall of the Coupeville Wharf. High school students from throughout the state visited

Ebey’s Landing in July to help repair windows at the Ferry House. Annie Matsov, historic architect with the Trust Board of Ebey’s Landing, noted that three of the nine renovation projects that was funded by the Ebey’s Forever Fund have already been completed. The Ebey’s Forever Fund provides grants to pay for preservation projects for the hundreds of historic buildings scattered throughout the reserve. This year $100,000 was awarded to 12 projects, one of which was the Comstock Barn. Ebey’s Landing isn’t the only stop this summer for the Pacific Northwest Field School. They are at Deception Pass State Park this week rebuilding a picnic shelter that had toppled several years ago. The log and masonry shelter will take volunteers two weeks to rebuild.
