Jets were flying last weekend at Outlying Field. The installation, known as the place Navy pilots practice touch-and-go landings before deployment, became the three-day home for a group of radio-control airplane enthusiasts. They participated in the 23rd annual Jets Over Whidbey, which provided a laid-back environment on the picturesque island.

“We draw people from all over the Western United States and Canada,” said Tom Berry, event coordinator for the Whidbey Island Radio Control Society. Bruce Bender made an 18-hour drive from Edmonton, Alberta, Canada, to participate in the fly-in. He controlled a Bandit, ARF, which he has owned for four years. Event organizers expected around 30 pilots to participate in the fly-in, which Berry

Students will have to bring a little more cash when buying lunch in Coupeville schools. The Coupeville School Board Monday night approved a 25-cent increase for the lunches offered in schools. With the increase, elementary school students will pay $3 for lunch, middle and high school students will pay $3.25 and adults will pay $5. Superintendent Jim Shank said that food costs have been increasing. “It was necessary to try and offset some of these costs,” Shank said during the meeting. School Board members Glenda Merwine, Kathleen Anderson and Jeff Tasoff voted for the proposal. Board members Don Sherman and Chris Chan were absent. The Coupeville School District recently negotiated a new contract with its food service provider, Chartwells. The school board approved a contract earlier in the summer to pay the company $3.74 per meal it serves. “We’re just trying to close that gap without making it too painful on people,” Tasoff said during the meeting. About half of the students use the school lunch program and 34.5 percent of the students are eligible to receive free-andreduced lunches. Shank added at the end of the meeting that a 25 cent increase seemed appropriate. A larger increase would be difficult for families. He said he would be concerned the school district would see a diminishing return on its lunch program if they implemented a larger increase. That would cause fewer students to buy lunches. The lunch price increase comes a little more than one week before the start of classes in Coupeville. Normally school officials would approve such an increase in the spring; however, Shank said that the negotiations with Chartwells took longer than planned.

Schools gear up for first day By Nathan Whalen Staff reporter

Mary Engle and her son, Justin, scan the class lists to find out who is going to be his teacher at Coupeville Elementary School. Justin is a third-grader and he will be in Wendy Davis’ class.

Kids only have a few days left to enjoy their summer vacation before heading back to school. Classes in the Coupeville School District begin Tuesday, Sept. 2 for all students from first-grade through high school. Classes at Coupeville Middle and High School start at 8 a.m. while the elementary school starts at 9 a.m. Teachers returned to

school this week to sift through data about their students and to prepare their classrooms for the coming school year, said elementary school principal David Ebersole. Parents and students can stop by the front of the elementary school to find out which class their children will attend. The class lists went on display Monday evening at the front entry way at the elementary school. Ebersole said that it looks

like a little more than 400 students are enrolled at the elementary school. “We’re fairly close to what we projected,” Ebersole said. He noted that the kindergarten class will have around 50 students, which is smaller than the 80 students in last year’s class. Kindergartners won’t start classes until Friday. They will attend conferences next week so teachers can conduct assessments and connect with parents. School staff are also busy

tending to the youngest future students. Ebersole highlighted during Monday’s Coupeville School Board meeting that teachers from kindergarten through second-grade held workshops over the summer with local preschools to help align their reading programs with the school district’s. While the Coupeville School District students start class the Tuesday after Labor Day, students on the north end have a couple more days of vacation.

L&J levy pulled from November election By Jessie Stensland Staff Reporter

One commissioner’s recognition of the county’s recuperating finances has led the board to pull the law-and-justice levy from the November ballot. The Island County commissioners Monday formally removed the proposed property tax increase from the ballot. All three commissioners informally agreed on the decision during a work session last week. “I’m concerned about going out and asking the taxpayers for more money when we have capacity in our budget,” Commissioner Jill Johnson said.

It’s a turnaround from their decision in July, when the commissioners voted to put the $1.9-million-a-year, property-tax levy on the ballot following a series of community meetings about the issue. Island County Sheriff Mark Brown and Prosecutor Greg Banks, the primary proponents of the levy, attended the commissioners’ work session Aug. 21 and asked the commissioners to withdraw the levy. They said they reached the decision after a special, unadvertised meeting of the Law and Justice Council Monday; all nine members present agreed to ask the board to delay the ballot measure after speak-

ing with Johnson about the budget. The issue may not be gone for good. Brown and Banks said the needs are great and a levy still may be necessary in the future, but they’ll have a better picture of the numbers after this year’s budget process, which started last week. “The need will still outstrip the county’s resources, but not in the first year,” Banks said. Brown agreed that the levy would be “more palatable to voters” if the county spends its existing surplus to fund law-and-justice needs before asking for more in taxes. Johnson conceded Wednesday that she didn’t have a complete grasp of the county’s budget when she agreed to the law-and-justice levy. She said she was focusing on the expenditure side of the equation and found that

it was “very, very lean.” The only programs left that can be cut, she said, are valuable and the savings wouldn’t even come close to covering the law-and-justice needs. Then she looked at the revenue side and realized that things are looking rosy. The county has had large fund balances for three years, including this year. Revenues outpaced expenditures by $1.6 million in 2011, $1.9 million in 2012 and this year’s projection is for a minimum of $1.5 million. The fund balances have been used to replenish the county’s reserve fund, which was depleted during the budget crisis. Johnson questioned how much should be kept in reserves; she said it would be difficult to ask voters for more money if the county’s “savings account” is excessive. The reserve fund is at $9 million, which is 41 percent of

the county’s $22-million operating budget. Johnson later said she believes a levy will be necessary at some point, but the county should use what it has before asking for more. “The thing about people is that they fundamentally don’t trust government,” she said. “What we need to do again and again is to show all our cards. If we are completely transparent, then they will see that our words match our actions.” “Most importantly, when you ask for things that you don’t need you erode your integrity with voters and we need to preserve our integrity ... If the voters hold us accountable throughout the budget process, then they will understand that the need is genuine when we do ask for a levy.” Commissioner Helen Price Johnson questioned the proposed delay of the ballot measure. She asked what had

changed since they decided to put the levy on the ballot. She said the budget is transparent and the commissioners get monthly budget presentations from the auditor’s office. Price Johnson pointed out that law-and-justice departments’ requests during just the first day of budget session amounted to more than $1.2 million in extra funding for “basic needs.” She said the county learned a hard lesson during the recession that it’s not a good idea to rely on unpredictable revenues, such as new construction and sales taxes. “We will just become a boom-and-bust county again,” she said. “I don’t want to hire six deputies and next year when sales tax revenues are gone, we lay them off.” Banks agreed with Price Johnson, but said it makes sense to wait until after this budget process to see how much additional funding is needed.

Whidbey woodworkers gather for Woodpalooza included a line of the client’s poetry on the dresser. He’s tied to the traditional trade and practice of furniture making, trying to respect where the materials come from and not be wasteful. “I want to express the material at the highest level I can and have the highest quality of product,” he said. Shinneman will show one piece at the show — an occasional table made of walnut and maple woods. The table includes a cabinet using the negative space under the top. He enjoys designing functional pieces for smaller spaces, he said. Shinneman also likes meeting with people and teaching them what it takes to make each piece of furniture. It’s a great opportunity to socialize with others in the field, he said. “It’s amazing to see the creative skills on the south island,” he said. “It’s impressive and inspiring to see other ways they approach a creative challenge and resolve it.” “Sometimes we get settled in our ways and it’s nice to get a tug to freshen up,” he said. Shinneman has been part of the Whidbey Island Wood-

He said the event has received marvelous growth over the years, especially since the move to the space at Whidbey Island Center for the Arts last year. He said the move stepped up the presentation for the show.

When Freeland resident John Shinneman first meets with a client to discuss a piece, nothing exists except for an idea and some rough lumber. Shinneman, owner of JCS Woodworking Studio, is a furniture designer and cabinet maker. His work is featured in the 10th annual Woodpalooza event by the Whidbey Island Woodworkers Guild. Woodpalooza aims to provide an alternative to mass-produced furniture and wood art by showcasing the talents of woodworkers on Whidbey Island. The free event features 20 artists and will be held noon to 5 p.m. daily from Aug. 31 to Sept. 2 at the Whidbey Island Center for the Arts. An opening reception will be from 6-9 p.m. on Friday, Aug. 30. Shinneman was attracted to furniture making and design in the early ‘80s. “I was always building with my hands,” he said. He was originally schooled as an architect but was later hired as a draftsman in a cabinet shop. He soon became the foreman and learned that furniture and design are connected skills, he said. Shinneman ended up carving out a career in design and cabinetry making, opening his own studio in Freeland in 1986. When the economy crashed in 2008, cabinet making came to a standstill

and most of his work centered on furniture making. It has since balanced out, he said. Shinneman describes his style as rooted in tradition, but with a contemporary approach. Furniture making gives him more artistic freedom, he said. For Shinneman, his greatest pleasure is to see clients add something to their lives that gives them aesthetic pleasure and meets their functional needs. “That’s what drives me. Being able to solve clients problems and give them solutions,” he said. Most people don’t understand what goes into making a piece of furniture, he said. Shinneman begins with discussing ideas with clients. He then provides drawings and miniature models to give an understanding of the design. Then he takes the design and cuts out all of the components, sands and applies multiple coats of finish to the piece. “It’s going to take some time but you won’t be looking to replace it,” he said. From a spiral staircase to a hobbit door, Shinneman designs what clients need even if it means he has to build the machine to make it. One client brought in an image from a vintage staircase with spiral rails. He didn’t know how to make that, so he made a new machine that would. Shinneman also personalizes furniture. He recently built a dresser for a poet and

New website aims for faster access to stories The Whidbey Examiner’s website got a fresh new look this week that will help readers get faster access to local news‚ and more of it. The new crisp-and-clean design makes space for more stories and photographs on the newspaper’s home page, and also offers easier access for readers on-the-go. The home page is topped by a new navigation bar which boasts a quick-glance box for current weather conditions. Also at the top: Icons for mobile applications and social media, so readers can quickly share stories and news with others. The website will continue to use the “river of news” format‚ with the most current content appearing at the top of the home page‚ though top stories will feature larger photographs, plus larger headlines and summaries. As more stories and features are published each day, older stories will carry smaller headlines and flow toward the bottom of the homepage. The box for “trending stories,”articles that are connecting with readers and being shared and read more often than other content‚ will also be repositioned on the home page; higher, for faster access for readers. Online readers should notice more news on the newspaper’s front page. “We’re actually fitting more content on the page than before,” said Seth Long, director of digital media for Sound Publishing. Stories will also be easier to share. Underneath each story byline, readers will find options for emailing the article, printing a copy or sending a letter to the editor about the topic. At the bottom of each story page, readers will also find links to related articles, as well as trending stories. “We’ve improved the presentation of the story; the typography is better, it’s easier to read, it’s easier to find sharing tools and it’s easier to find related and trending content,” Long said. The website update is being launched across most of Sound Publishing’s titles, though the websites for paid-access newspapers will share a slightly different makeover. It’s the first update to Sound Publishing websites‚ which boast 2.2 million unique visitors and 11.5 million page views a month‚ since 2010. The Whidbey Examiner’s new site launched Tuesday.

This festival would not be possible without the continued support of individuals and sponsors from Coupeville. The Coupeville Festival is truly a community event. In some cases, there are third-generation volunteers who come “home” to Coupeville to help at the festival. Other volunteers come from Island County communities, the mainland and even as far away as Texas. I personally want to thank all of the committee chairs and their dedicated volunteer teams for their countless hours of work throughout the year that make this great event happen. If I have not mentioned some person or organization, let me apologize now for the oversight. 2014 is the 50th Anniversary for the Coupeville Arts and Crafts Festival.

OLF should not be a symbol for division Editor, As a member of Citizens of the Reserve, I was surprised to suddenly see two large noticeable signs in the yard of a respected neighbor advertising their commitment to

keeping the Outlying Field fully upon us. The surprise kept at me all day, and now I sit here still miffed, hoping my fingers on the keyboard might direct me to an answer they are struggling to find. There’s no debate here: we all want safe training for our young men and women and a healthy environment for all. Those are not mutually exclusive goals. To me it is so very simple. The issue is the immense human cost of life-damaging noise, safety, and fuel dumping that our society elsewhere is fully intolerant of versus the other side seemingly unable to balance the comparatively nominal cost and inconvenience of moving the OLF (or adding a runway at NASWI) against the far larger human impacts that needlessly divide our community. This is not a battle over who is or isn’t a patriot, and to have had it framed that way is irresponsible and reprehensible — a battle trumped up by jet hobbyists and myopic politicians too willing to wave a flag without thought to their oath of office or to the propaganda that too easily has afflicted their absence of independent thought and rubber-stamped their rhetoric. As I write, I am remembering this is Martin Luther King’s day of finest hour. The ruling class at that time wanted to keep the “negroes” in their place and the caucasians in theirs. This is noteworthy because the need to accept change comes from the need to realize that perceptions morph as knowledge advances; that most of us can and do grow with the times and for those that don’t, attrition corrects; that debate can be honorable without becoming a feud; that personal interests and narrow-mindedness held over reason become biases that twist the spine society. The OLF should not be a symbol for divide but should rather be a catalyst for the island communities to reflect on that old Pogo line, “We have met the enemy and he is us.”

Move or lose some plants

toni grove sowin ’n’ the trowel In my last column I talked about the factors that go into finding the perfect spot in your garden for a plant your head over heels in love with. In a perfect world, your new plant would thrive in the special spot you’ve chosen for it and live there happily ever after. Sadly, a perfect world is tough to find, even tougher than creating a perfect garden. Someday, despite all your best intentions, it may need to take a hike. Think of it this way: It’s like dreaming of a fairytale royal wedding and ending up instead with a quickie, drivethrough Las Vegas ceremony officiated by an Elvis impersonator. And not the hot, “Aloha from Hawaii” Elvis, but the fat, peanut-butterand-banana-sandwich-eating Elvis. It’s happened to me. Some of my plant problems were inherited and others I can only blame on myself. Worse yet, when it comes to trees and shrubs, there’s usually more than a little sweat involved in the solution. There used to be a lilac bush with amazingly gorgeous flowers in front of my house. Of course, until a few years after we moved in I didn’t realize just how gor-

geous. You see, it had been planted smack dab in front of my dining room window and I kept cutting it back so I could see through that window. One assumes glass is transparent for that very reason, but who am I to judge? Because of my constant pruning, the lilac never bloomed. I found out later it was a dwarf variety, but still too tall for where it had been planted. In the end, I was able to move it and it thrives in a new spot where it can finally bloom and be appreciated. You know, doors are even cooler than windows. You can open them and walk through them. That is, unless there’s a hydrangea planted beside one. That poor bush produced the most magnificent blue flowers, but I had to practically chop it in half every year to use the door. The outcome in this case wasn’t as rosy. After digging to China to get it out of the ground, the root system was too damaged and it languished in its new spot. It could have turned out very different had the person who planted it in the first place taken the time to consider the space it would take up when it was mature. And then there was the lovely flowering red currant I planted in the corner of my raised veggie garden. It was so very happy there and I was happy with its riot of bright pink flowers. The problem wasn’t me or the current. The problem was its proximity to where my husband and his friends routinely parked their

big rigs. The poor thing got kissed by the grill of either a Peterbilt or Freightliner. I don’t know who did the dirty deed, but after a lot of digging and some well thought out relocation, it ended up in a safer and better spot, the spot where it should have been all along, had I thought more about where it needed to be and less about where I wanted it to be.

DNR asks for vigilance during wildfire season The Washington State Department of Natural Resources (DNR) asks the public to be cautious, alert and aware of burn restrictions across Washington state. Wildfire activity escalated in recent days after thunderstorms, many with little or no moisture, moved across parts of California, Oregon, Idaho and Montana, and spared hundreds of new fires. The fire forecast for most of the western U.S. calls for hot and dry weather to continue into the fall. While the likelihood of fires is high, resources available to fight fires are stretched thin. The National Interagency Fire Center has moved the National Wildfire Preparedness Level to the highest level, PL-5, indicating that fire suppression resources are becoming scarce. Of DNR’s five interagency incident management teams, two teams are

staffing wildfires in Washington. The other teams are replenishing their resources after suppressing several large fires, including the Mile Marker 28 and Colockum Tarps fires, which consumed a combined area in excess of 100,000 acres. In addition, DNR personnel continue to extinguish numerous smaller fires almost every day. And, consistent with mutual aid agreements, DNR has sent personnel and equipment to Oregon to help contain wildfires on the other side of the state line. Currently, there is a statewide burn ban on 13 million acres of forestlands in Washington. Campgrounds may have additional burn restrictions in place. Campers should check with their campground host or the local fire district before starting a campfire. To report a wildfire in Washington state call 9-1-1 or you may also report forest fires by calling 800-5626010.

Equestrians vault to competition By Nathan Whalen Staff Reporter

At a horse arena located near the Greenbank Farm, two equestrians were honing their vaulting skills, balancing and tumbling atop horses. Equestrian Crossings, which offers riding programs in Greenbank and Oak Harbor, is forming a team that will participate in regional and national competitions next year. The national vaulting competition takes place in August 2014 at Eugene, Ore. The Equestrian Crossings team currently has two people, Jacque Diaz and Haley McConnaughey, but organizers have hopes to sign up more. Vaulting is basically gymnastics on a horse that walks, trots or canters in a circle. The rider performs a series of moves to music while atop the horse while a longueur(trainer) stands in the middle of the circle and ensures the horse maintains a consistent pace. “The ultimate goal of

She highlighted the advantages of the vaulting program — it helps with social skills and it is a creative outlet. Diaz, who is 31, has been vaulting off and on for the past five years. “I’m just getting back into it,” said Diaz, who has spina bifida and has been in a wheel chair since she was 3 years old.

She learned about the vaulting program when she bumped into instructor Miriam Burk at the Oak Harbor Walmart. She had previously competed in bowling and track and field in the Special Olympics. “Vaulting is a new challenge,” Diaz said before practice. Her teammate, 13-yearold Freeland resident Haley McConnaughey, wanted to compete in vaulting because it combined her love of dance, gymnastics and horses. She has been participating in Equestrian Crossings programs for about a year. She learned of the program through her sister. The two vaulters started their practice on an elevated barrel with pads surrounding it while their horsed were busy warming up. Diaz said performing moves on the horse is easier

because its gait helps her time the moves. “I love the movement of the horses,” Diaz said. They were riding Kirbey, who is a 15-year-old Percheron, and Radar, who is a 23-year-old Norwegian Fjord. Burk said the two horses have been training for years and, with a third one in the wings, developing a team seemed like the next step for the vaulting program. She said the team should ideally have 10 riders. That would allow competition in individual, pairs and team events that would include up to six riders. Equestrian Crossings vaulting program has both competitive and recreational options. Burk noted that a 70-year-old woman will start recreational lessons next month. In addition to recruiting riders, Equestrian Crossings is looking for sponsors and raising money to pay for the costs of competing and organizing a team. The organization has to raise around $2,500 per rider before the regional and national competitions. Lessons, which also includes English and Western riding, start in September and the initial competitions begin in early 2014. Equestrian Crossings offers riding programs and hippotherapy for people of nearly all ages, abilities and disabilities. For more information, contact Burk at 360-840-6775 or go to www.

Mendes closes long, successful coaching career By Jim Waller Staff Reporter

And so closes another chapter – a long chapter – in the soccer life of Paul Mendes. Mendes resigned as the boys soccer coach at Coupeville High School earlier this month, ending a string of 33 years of coaching high school soccer, the last eight at CHS. Mendes’ own playing career ended with a serious leg injury, but the setback was a gain for high school soccer players at Bellevue’s Newport High School and Coupeville. At Newport, Mendes won two state titles, 1982 and 2003, and placed second in state twice. He called the second state title his coaching highlight as the Knights went 20-0-1 and were ranked in the national top 10. As a result, he was named the King County Eastside Prep Coach of the Year. His Newport teams made 13 state appearances and won 10 Kingco championships. He led Coupeville teams to the final 16 twice, and his CHS highlight, he said, was taking the 2009 squad to state, the first in school history. “I feel quite proud of our competitive spirit and conduct on the field,” Mendes said. “Over the years we managed to beat every team in

Paul Mendes the Cascade League. We developed quite a rivalry with South Whidbey, so beating them home and away during the 2010 and 2012 seasons was also very satisfying.” In his resignation letter to the Coupeville School District, Mendes said, “The decision to retire from coaching is one that I have thought a great deal about, and I feel that now is the right time. I would like to thank the school for giving me the opportunity to serve. It has been a special experience for me, filled with many golden moments that I will cherish forever.” He added, “I feel good about going out with a special group of seniors, who gave it their best shot and represented their school very well.”

Mendes said there are other projects he would like to take on, as well as having more time to “appreciate spring on this beautiful island.” In addition to coaching high school soccer, he was an assistant at Seattle Pacific University and helped the Falcons win national titles in 1986 and 1993. When Mendes was a child, like many youngsters he dreamed of becoming a professional athlete. After graduating from Newport, he played soccer for the University of Washington, lettering four times and receiving all-league honors three times. His childhood dream was realized when he was drafted by the Seattle Sounders in 1977. His rookie season was cut short by a mistimed tackle that sent him by ambulance to the hospital with a compound fracture of his lower leg. He was never the same, and his professional career ended two years later. Mendes calls setbacks “stepping stones.” This setback sent him back to school where he stepped forward by earning his degree and refocusing his life on teaching and coaching. It also enabled him to expand his horizons by studying abroad in Spain and Argentina. The pavers eventually led to the positive impact he had on lives of hundreds of high school athletes.

Scoreboards indicate the final results of Coupeville High School athletic events, but not all the wins come entirely from gameday effort. Most likely, some victories can be traced back to the work the athletes put in during their sessions in the weight room. At the CHS, SpeedStrengthTraining (SST) is the conditioning focal point, according to weight-room supervisor Dustin VanVelkinburgh. Several Coupeville coaches learned about the SST program at a clinic, and assistant football coach Brett Smedley used the program when he worked a Battle Ground. They first implemented the program in February of 2012 and ran it through Au-

gust; they are repeating the schedule this year. SST is “power based,” VanVelkinburgh said. “We are not looking for maximum lifts. Instead of being statically strong, we want to be powerful.” He added, “It is based on 30 percent maximum; it is based on quickness.” The creator of SST, Steve Kenyon, is visiting Coupeville Sept. 7 to train coaches and teachers and give demonstrations for parents. Kenyon’s philosophy is “instructional-based, sportsperformance training using free-weight, multi-segment, standing position exercise for

all athletes.” One of the plusses of the program, VanVelkinburgh said, is that it is great for any age – you can be as young as 8 – because it does not put a lot of stress on the joints. In the Coupeville High School program, the athletes test in the 40-yard dash, vertical jump, kneeling medicine ball toss, standing broad jump and I-test (a short shuttle run) to measure growth. VanVelkinburgh said the program is a combination of speed, strength and balance, and it also teaches different kinds of running and running form. “We want lean and ag-

ile athletes with good leg strength,” and the result is “good team speed,” he said. About 20 athletes consistently attend; the weight room is open 8-9 a.m. and 3-4 p.m. during the summer. Smedley and VanVelkinburgh are the primary advisors with other coaches filling in when needed. “The kids love it,” VanVelkinburgh said. “They work hard.” He added, “They like it once they try it. The hard part is getting them here.” The Wolves also like the positive numbers on the scoreboard.

Jets: OLF runway attracts enthusiasts From page 1 stressed isn’t a competition. Powered by jet fuel, some of the radio- control planes flying over the weekend could reach speeds of 200 mph. Outlying Field provides several attractive features for the pilots, namely it has a concrete field. “It’s unprecedented to have this nice of a field,” Berry said adding there are only a few places throughout Washington state model jet engines can be flown. Model Planes of all shapes and sizes flew during the threeday event. Behzad Pakzad from Seattle, finished building Futura model jet a couple of days before the event while event director Bill Broderick spent around a year making sure one of his jets had a local flair. The Mill Creek resident bought an F-18 model jet Tom Berry, event coordinator, and remodeled it to look like Jets Over Whidbey an EA-18 Growler that flies from NAS Whidbey Island — specifically one flying for VAQ 141, the Shadowhawks. He made decalls, used a composite fiberglass to produce the pods and antenna to mimic the Growler. “I just like that it’s a local plane, Broderick said. “I’m happy the tail hook works.” The Whidbey Island Radio Control Society is a group of enthusiasts who fly both propeller and turbine powered model airplanes. Membership stands at around 130 people ranging from teenagers to octogenarians. Berry said membership generally fluctuates a bit as some military participants get sent out on deployment. Generally people start out piloting slower propeller planes before making the upgrade to turbines. Before that can happen, people have to go through a credentialing process that includes solo flights. He noted that turbine model airplanes can cost thousands of dollars while a propeller-powered plane can be purchased for several hundred dollars. The society draws members from around Whidbey Island and holds meetings at 7 p.m., the fourth Monday of the month at Family Bible Church on North Heller Road. Go to for more information.

“It’s unprecedented to have this nice of a field.”

Mill Creek resident Bill Broderick spent a year reconfiguring his model jet into an EA-18 Growler, which are based at Whidbey Island Naval Air Station.

The model jets flying at Outlying Field could reach speeds up to 200 mph. The three-day event featured 22 pilots and 34 airplanes.
