Peterson, Servatius offer stark differences

Bones likely to add $6-$8 to monthly utility bills

By JESSIE STENSLAND Staff reporter

The differences are pretty stark between the two candidates running for position 5 on the Oak Harbor City Council. Councilman Joel Servatius emphasizes his education, experience as a businessman and a community volunteer, and skills as a critical thinker. Challenger Sandi Peterson stresses her common sense, natural leadership abilities and years as a behind-the-scenes political mover-and-shaker. Servatius is among the current council members who are most critical of Mayor Scott Dudley; Peterson was Dudley’s campaign manager, and she has his support in this election.

The inadvertent unearthing of a Native American burial ground on Pioneer Way two years ago will likely end up costing the average Oak Harbor utility ratepayers an extra $6 to $8 a month for three years. The costs also depleted a fund earmarked for road projects and delayed road work. But while the archaeological work is over, other costs associated with the issue continue to accumulate and could increase rates more in the future. See COSTs, A8

Mayor gives assistant axe By JESSIE STENSLAND Staff reporter

Oak Harbor Mayor Scott Dudley once again surprised both supporters and detractors by firing a member of his team. The city supervisor emailed out a brief note to city officials and staff Friday afternoon announcing that Renee Recker, the mayor’s executive assistant, is no longer working for the city. On Monday, Dudley said he made the decision to terminate Recker after trying to improve her work for months. He said he even brought in a consultant to help her understand her role. “Renee is a very nice person,” he said, “but I will continue to ask more from all city employees. We are accountable to the citizens of Oak Harbor.” See axed, A5

THE COUNCIL appointed Servatius to fill Dudley’s council seat two years ago after Dudley was elected mayor. Servatius has been in the middle of several controversies over the years, but perhaps the biggest impact he’s had on the city was in pushing efficiency through technology. Some call him the “paperless councilman.” He’s helped fellow council members and city staff see the benefits of iPads, which saved the city hundreds of dollars worth of printing costs for each meeting. Plus, he points out the ease of searching records using the electronic medium, as well as communicating with constituents. Servatius graduated from the University of Puget Sound’s Business Leadership Program, which he describes as a very selec-

Downtown mural grows into a larger issue Artist claims compensation doesn’t match project that grew in scale By RON NEWBERRY Staff reporter

There’s little argument over the beauty of a new mural that graces a wall in historic downtown Oak Harbor. But there is a dispute over the artist’s final bill. Just a month after putting away her paint brushes, artist Nancy Hakala is claiming she will not be fully compensated for the massive mural she spent seven weeks painting on the side of a Pioneer Way building this summer. Hakala said she made a verbal agreement to be paid $9,750 for the project that grew to be nearly twice as large as originally planned and took about double the time to complete. After returning home to Auburn, Calif., last month, Hakala said she was told by Karen Mueller, who hired her

to paint the mural, that she would not be receiving the amount she had requested. Instead, Hakala said she was told that she would receive $6,000, the amount in the original signed contract. “The whole thing is upsetting,” Hakala said this week. The original contract called for Hakala to paint a mural 10 feet tall by 50 feet wide, or 500 square feet. When she got onsite, the scope of the project grew, and Hakala and Mueller agreed that more optimal dimensions for such a large wall would be 17 feet tall by 53 feet wide, or 881 square feet. Hakala said she agreed to paint the mural at the larger size as long as she was paid an additional $12 per square foot for the extra work. Hakala said she relied on the verbal agreement after the written contract was never revised.

Ron Newberry/Whidbey News-Times

Mural artist Nancy Hakala, front, says the $6,000 she is being paid for the seven-week project is nearly $4,000 shy of the agreement that she understood. “I just want to emphasize I never would have put more paint on the wall than the agreement,” Hakala said. “Unfortunately, I just went by somebody’s genuine word.” Such a claim is upsetting to Mueller, who said she’s sad to see the project that she spearheaded as a way to beautify downtown end this way. Mueller said she did agree to compensate Hakala more

ing on the mural. Hakala had agreed to allow a local expert handle the lettering and offered for that to be taken out of the nearly $10,000 she was requesting. As far as Mueller is concerned, payment is now in full. Though Hakala doesn’t agree, she said she won’t take the matter to court. She isn’t sure why the fundraising efforts stopped after she left town. Mostly, Hakala said she is sad things ended this way. The people of Oak Harbor warmly embraced her and helped her during a difficult time personally as she was still healing from the death of her son last December, she said. Positives of her Whidbey Island experience far outweigh the dispute over payment, she said, adding she intends to return to Whidbey Island for future projects. Her sister lives in Greenbank. “I don’t want any bad blood in the town,” Hakala said. “The town has been very kind to me.”

Alcohol ban lifted at parks By JESSIE STENSLAND Staff reporter

A prohibition against alcohol has been lifted for two Oak Harbor parks, but city leaders created some pretty high hurdles for any group interested in holding a wine or beer garden to jump over. At the request of residents and event organizers, Councilwoman Tara Hizon proposed earlier this year to loosen city code to allow vendors and concession in city parks, as well as the sale of alcohol during special events in certain parks. Last week, the council approved an ordinance that updates the park code and allows vendors in designated areas of Windjammer and Catalina parks to run beer or wine gardens during special events.

The change, however, is only effective for a year-long “trial run” which the council can make permanent if there’s not any problems. And prospective vendors would have to apply and obtain permission from the City Council to hold a beer or wine garden. People on both sides of the issue spoke at the council meeting. JoAnn Hellmann, director of the Impaired Driving Impact Panel, argued that the code change is a bad idea because it may lead to drinking and driving. She said the safety of citizens should be a higher priority than “alcoholfueled fun.” Sandi Peterson, a council candidate, said she was against the measure because of the message it would send

to children, which is that “they have to have alcohol to have fun at an event.” Jason Tritt of Flyers Restaurant pointed out that vendors run beer gardens on city streets during special events without any problems. He said all the communities surrounding Oak Harbor allow alcohol to be sold in parks for special events. Hizon pointed out that the police chief said it’s easier for officers to enforce liquor laws in outdoor beer gardens, as opposed to bars. Councilman Jim Campbell said he didn’t hear any reasons for the change that resonated with him. He said “one of the worst reasons to do something” is because everyone else is. In the end, only Campbell voted against the ordinance.

for the project, but only if she could raise the additional money. Mueller said her fundraising efforts beyond covering the original contract, plus the cost to hire someone else to do the lettering, were unsuccessful. “The agreement was that I would do my best to raise more money, which I did,” Mueller said. Hakala said she had no idea Mueller would come up short

in her fundraising efforts. She said she painted the mural under the assumption she would be fully compensated for all of her work. She said she wouldn’t expect the money to come out of Mueller’s own pocket. “I would naturally assume she raised the amount of money for the mural,” Hakala said. Rhianna McBride, who works at the bookstore, said Hakala was aware of Mueller’s difficulties raising the money and seemed “very positive and supportive of the whole situation,” suggesting that something could be worked out. One thing Hakala and Mueller do agree on is that neither wanted the mural project to end like this. Hakala and Mueller agree that this dispute was avoidable had they maintained better communication and revised the written contract. Mueller said she recently paid the last of three $2,000 installments to Hakala. Mueller also paid a La Conner sign painter $1,050 for letter-

By JANIS REID Staff reporter

While Ron Witherall was happy to return to work Monday at his Department of Defense job at Whidbey Island Naval Air Station, he said he plans to take his opinions about the recent federal government shutdown straight to the polls. “When I vote this time around, if there’s ‘incumbent’ behind your name, you’re out. I don’t care if you’re a Republican, Tea Party or Democrat,” Witherall said. “If you can’t work together in Congress and pass a budget, then we need new people that can work together across lines in the sand and get the job done.” Due to Congress’ inability to agree on a national budget, the government effectively shut down nearly all federal operations Oct. 1. The result was the furlough of hundreds of civilian staff at NAS Whidbey and about 400,000 nationally. At the 11th hour before the government shutdown, Congress passed the Pay Our Military Act, later interpreted to include certain members of DOD’s civilian employees who provide support to members of the Armed Forces. Defense Secretary Chuck Hagel announced on Oct. 5 the recall of most of the

civilian employees who were furloughed due to the government shutdown. Many essential federal services island wide were unaffected by the shutdown, however, including the U.S. Postal Service,

“When I vote this time around, if there’s ‘incumbent’ behind your name, you’re out.” Ron Witherell

Social Security, Medicaid and Medicare. The federal Women, Infants and Children program or WIC is funded through the end of October. The furlough is the second in a matter of months for Witherall, a retired Navy chief of 20 years who works in the hazmat center on base. He and roughly 1,200 local DOD employees who were furloughed in July one day-a-week for three weeks due to sequestration. For employees like Witherall the current furloughs created a strange predicament, where they were able to start drawing

federal unemployment, but then have to turn around and suspend it. On top of that, if a recent retroactive pay legislation is approved, Witherall will have to repay unemployment he may have received. “I’ll pay back my unemployment insurance benefit, but who knows, I may be furloughed again on Oct. 17,” Witherall said. For that reason, he is keeping his unemployment insurance open, he said, until Congress passes legislation prior to the Oct. 17 deadline to raise the debt ceiling and avoid a national default. “Congress is effectively hurting our nation and it looks like it will get worse on Oct. 17 unless they can finally do their job and pass a budget and keep the nation from going into default,” Witherall said. “I know contractors that work on base that were furloughed and I’m sure they will not get retroactive backpay. This is just one example of how Congress has effectively hurt our nation. Congress needs to do their

job in a timely manner and stop playing this finger pointing game.” Like Witherall, NAS Whidbey computer assistant Kristi Dutton was sent home Tuesday, Oct. 2 after two hours of work. “To put it politely, I was not happy,” Dutton said. “I was as angry and upset as everyone else was. Here we are getting sent home, and all these guys in D.C. are still getting paid.” Dutton echoed Witherall’s sentiment that the country’s current representatives are not doing their jobs and should be voted out of office. “If I was doing a crappy job like them at my job, I’d be fired,” Dutton said. Dutton confirmed Monday morning that she was returning to work Wednesday, Oct. 9. However, she said, the week without work created undue stress for her family, particularly after the furlough in July. “You start to get back to a good recovery program, and then they send you home again,” Dutton said. “You think, ‘They’re being nice to us, but what’s next.’”

Whidbey wedding tour bringing bridal business By SARA HANSEN Staff Reporter

The wedding and event markets are growing, and businesses on Whidbey Island are looking to take advantage of it. Gloria Mickunas, owner of Whidbey Party Girls! is spearheading Weddings on Whidbey and Events Tour on Nov. 9. There’s no way to get a taste of the entire island in one single day, she said, but this cumulative tour helps visitors come close to that experience. “It’s not Clinton, Oak Harbor, or Langley competing against each other, it’s about everyone working together,” Mickunas said. “My community is Whidbey Island.” The tour starts at the historic Crockett Barn where people will check-in. Each venue will have an array of different vendors, from caterers to the rental companies who will be available for questions. Other venues include Garrison Hall at Fort Casey Inn, Ciao, Bayleaf and Captain Whidbey Inn. Shuttles will be available to take participants to and from the different venues. “Where on the island do you want to be, what do you want it to look like, and what do you want to have?” Mickunas asked. “That’s what people can find out on this tour.” Mickunas says the wedding season is from February to November, not just 10 nice weeks out of summer. This event will showcase the island’s offerings year-round. “Our community needs this,” Mickunas said. “A February wedding can make a big difference.” Whidbey Island is a great location for destination weddings because of the proximity to Seattle. When visitors have to travel to the San Juans, it can be quite a trek. “We need to brand and educate the community that Whidbey Island is the closet place to far away,” Mickunas said. “We are so alive and vibrant, and we get less rain than Seattle.” The event is also sponsored by the Island County Economic Development Council. Seattle has very successful wedding shows, and this will help showcase what this area has to offer, said Sami Postma, executive assistant at Island County Economic Development Council. Many island vendors are excited for this marketing initia-

Erik and Ali Vail are a husband and wife photography team. They live in Oak Harbor, and would love for more business to come to the island. “Unfortunately we’ve had to advertise as Seattle photographers because that’s where the market is,” said Erik Vail. “The island is a hidden gem for weddings.” Every destination wedding matters, regardless of the size, Mickunas said. If 200 people are coming to the island for a wedding, that translates into car rentals, dining out at restaurants and lodging that all goes back into the community. The national average budget for a wedding in 2012 was $28,427, according to a Real Weddings Survey released by TheKnot.com and WeddingChannel.com. It’s the second year in a row that number has increased since the economic downturn in 2008. “This industry is a growing industry and we don’t want to miss out on this opportunity,” Mickunas said.

Nattress, who graduated from Coupeville High School in 1986. He moved back to the island in 2009 to raise his family. He loved growing up on the island, and wanted his two daughters to have that same experience. Upon returning to the island, he and his wife started a catering company called Cultivar. His menus are inspired by the season. Promoting weddings and events on the island is important because it affects everyone, Nattress said. “We spend thousands of dollars on employees, and on the food we buy from farmers, and we’re a tiny catering company,” Nattress said. This a great opportunity for vendors to network. Most of the time at events, they just have enough time to exchange cards and that’s all. Now, they can work together through this event to bring more business to the island, Ali Vail said. Even though they photograph weddings for a living, the Vails said they still get butterflies and shed a few tears at every wedding they shoot. “We fall in love with every couple, so my favorite wedding is always the last one I shot,” Erik Vail said. The tour is from 11:30 a.m. to 5:30 p.m. on Nov. 9, and features more than 45 local vendors. Tickets must be purchased ahead of time. Regular tickets are $20 each, and for those who want to beat the rush, VIP tickets are $35 and allow people to view venues one hour earlier. For more information visit weddingsonwhidbey.net

RACE CONTINUED FROM A1 tive program dedicated to honing students’ critical-thinking skills. He is branch manager of a Transamerica Financial Advisors, Inc. office in Oak Harbor. Servatius said he and his wife immersed themselves in the community after moving to Oak Harbor in 1997. He served on the Oak Harbor Chamber of Commerce board for nearly 12 years, volunteered at the school district, helped run a wrestling club for kids and is involved in his church. “It’s vital that the city has the most experienced, educated and involved council members to handle the important decisions ahead of us,” he said. PETERSON HAS tried to shape the political landscape of the island. She was campaign manager for both Dudley and Councilman Jim Campbell when he ran unsuccessfully for Island County commissioner. She was involved in Rob McKenna and Dino Rossi’s gubernatorial campaigns and the presidential campaigns of President George W. Bush, Sen. John McCain, and Massachusetts Gov. Mitt Romney. She is president of the Republican Women of North Whidbey and vice chairwoman of the Island

County Republican Party. Peterson donated to many of Whidbey’s most conservative politicians, including Island County Commissioner Kelly Emerson and state Sen. Barbara Bailey. Peterson said she is ready to step into the limelight and lead in a more visible role. Dudley appointed her to his economic development ad hoc committee and, more recently, to the city planning commission. She’s a regular attendee at council meetings and often speaks her mind on a widerange of issues. Though she doesn’t have a college degree, Peterson said her diverse work history informs her perspective on the world. She’s worked for both small companies and large corporations in a variety of roles. She said she worked in the legal department and was the director of customer service for a large company in Maryland. Peterson holds a real estate license and was both a real estate sales person and a property manager. The biggest difference between her and Servatius, she said, is their philosophy of government, though they both profess to be fiscal conservatives. “He tends to be a top-down government guy and I’m a bottom-up government girl,” she said. THE BIGGEST issue that will face the

Page A5

council in coming years is, arguably the new sewage treatment plant, estimated to cost $93.5 million. The siting of the plant, in the vicinity of Windjammer Park on Pioneer Way, took years to decide. Several more key decisions will be made in the next year. Peterson said she would favor slowing down the process and looking at alternative sites and technology, as the mayor has proposed. She said she knows the state gave the city a timeline for completing the plant, but said officials should be able to negotiate an extension. “I think it’s a lot of money no matter what we do,” she said, “and we need to be sure.” Unlike Dudley, though, Peterson said she is happy with the current engineering firm and wouldn’t be in favor of looking for another. Servatius said he believes that the right decisions have been made so far. Initially, he conceded, he was adamantly opposed to building a sewage plant in, or near, the waterfront park, but his opinion changed after learning about the technology and touring facilities in other communities. He said he learned that the plants can be odor-free and attractive. “I realized it can be a catalyst for the entire area,” he said, referring to potential development on Pioneer Way incorporated into the project.

ANOTHER IMPORTANT topic is the candidates’ relationship with the mayor. Servatius admits there’s friction between him and the mayor; he publicly accuses Dudley of lying about him while Dudley was campaigning door-to-door for Peterson and his other council picks. Some degree of disagreement is healthy, Servatius said. Citizens get better results when their representatives aren’t afraid to vigorously debate while trying to find the best solutions, Servatius said. He denies, however, any claims of obstructionism and said he’s willing to stand alone in voting for something he feels strongly about. Servatius questions whether the city — or democracy — will be well served if the mayor’s supporter is elected to the council. Separation of the executive and legislative branches of government is important, he said. Peterson said she thinks for herself, listens to input from everyone and does her own research. She said she’s not a “rubber-stamp” for Dudley, but will consider all sides of an issue. Peterson said she can help change the “dysfunctional” state of city government. “Part of what I did for a living was sales,” she said. “In sales you learn to get along with a wide range of people.”

the council adopted her new contract. Her salary was set at $65,000 a year, which equates to $86,000 when the value of city benefits are factored in. In contrast, the mayor earns about $51,000 a year. Dudley said her salary had nothing to do with his decision to fire her; but he said the new executive assistant, when hired, will be “much more affordable.” Dudley said he plans to expand the job description to include an “ombudsman” role, which he said means tracking citizens concerns

and making sure questions are answers. He said he will appoint a temporary assistant to fill Recker’s place. Recker was acting as both the assistant to the mayor and city administrator, which was filled by two well-paid employees before Dudley came into office and the city administrator’s assistant quit. Since coming into office, Dudley has fired the city administrator, two city attorneys, the fire chief, the police chief and was accused of forcing out the former city engineer. City Council members criticized Dudley’s actions,

which costs the city large chunks of money in severance packages. Recker was an at-will employee, which means

she served at the will of the mayor. Under her contract, she will receive a one-month severance package.

Filing a frivolous lawsuit is not being a good watchdog PUBLISHER’s column

By KEVEN R. GRAVES

I believe watchdogs have their place in government. Too many people are apathetic about their government, local or otherwise, and that’s a sad condition of our society. I’ve sat through many a local planning commission or city council meeting and gritted my teeth, minutes ticking away into hours, as someone would inevitably stand up and begin asking a flurry of lengthy and complicated questions. While I may have selfishly wanted to go home after a long day, I remained cognizant of the fact that our process of open government allows for everyone to speak up and be heard. Besides, there were often some good questions asked, ones I hadn’t thought of. Anyone willing to become an active participant in the government process deserves respect. Our government leaders are not, and should never be, immune to tough questions. Bill Burnett has gone beyond government watchdog, acting more like a rabid pitbull. Burnett is wont to complain about government waste, but he sued Island County because Commissioner Kelly Emerson was stripped of her chairmanship through her own actions. In his lawsuit, Burnett sought to have Emerson reinstalled as commissioner. The county’s attorneys issued Burnett a list of what was required to move his complaint forward. Burnett, acting as his own attorney, essentially received some free legal advice at the taxpayer’s expense. The 45-day deadline for Burnett to prepare additional documents and file a brief of appellant in Superior Court passed. Throughout this process, Burnett, a frequent critic of Whidbey News-Times coverage, failed to return phone calls or talk on the record about his lawsuit. For someone who likes to complain that the newspaper fails to cover issues fairly, Burnett has been conspicuously silent. Burnett had his day in court. His lawsuit is languishing. It’s my guess he saw the writing on the wall and was hoping the matter would just vanish without notice. In filing his frivolous lawsuit, Bill Burnett effectively succeeded in making himself part of the problem rather than part of solution. That’s not being a good watchdog.

Letters to the editor WGH

‘Yes’ vote will uphold the common good Editor, In the 1990s I worked the last seven years of my 40-year nursing career in most all departments at Whidbey General Hospital. I can affirm that timely and appropriate care at WGH is a life saver. Whether it is to treat my husband’s healthy 27-year-old uninsured physical trainer’s acute appendicitis, which struck on a weekend night, or future injuries from the big earthquake that some say is overdue, lives are saved at WGH. Emergencies are never planned. They are always a surprise, and we want to be prepared for any disaster. The current bond issue will keep our community’s hospital from slipping into the backwater of patient care. In the last 25 years I have observed WGH mature into a facility where quality standards of hospital practice is available for most medical and surgical problems without the added time and expense of going off-island. As with heart attacks where time is equal to saved heart tissue, we go for-

ward or backward; there is no standing still, no status quo. From here we either continue to get better or we get worse. As Barbara Jordan said, a community “is formed by the willingness of each of us to share in the responsibility for upholding the common good.” A “yes” vote is for continued improvement in quality standard of practice which will attract not only more patients but also the most qualified health care providers. For all our sakes, let’s vote “yes” for the hospital bond issue. Susan M. McDonald RN Oak Harbor

Health care needs to keep up with times Editor, We are writing as members of the community who have received services at Whidbey General Hospital, and who happen to also work in the Medical Ambulatory Care/Oncology Unit (MAC) at WGH. We are certified oncology and certified specialty nurses who have worked at WGH from seven to 25 years. Our average tenure at WGH is 14 years. We love our patients and our jobs.

In our years at WGH, we watched the MAC unit grow. In 2012, we were one of 79 hospitals nationally that received an outstanding achievement award from the Commission on Cancer. We are proud of both our unit and our hospital. We are concerned about our patients and want to ensure they continue to receive quality care at WGH. As our hospital ages and technology changes, we want to ensure WGH continues to grow. We recently installed a state-of-the -art computer system that changed how we do our work. It was challenging upgrading our technology, but we are doing it. It is gratifying to be a part of the change in health care today. We value technology and know how much this new technology means to our patients and their care. They will receive more fluid health care with the new system. Our patients’ medical histories are at our fingertips. Our physicians and nurses can pull up patients’ medical records and promptly evaluate their needs. However, WGH can’t stop with an electronic medical record. We need to improve our aging facility so our patients can continue to receive quality See nursES, A7

OLF Coupeville

Loudest horn does not equal a band Editor, In response to Ms. Spina’s letter concerning the unfairness of the Whidbey News-Times article, I find one statement very concerning: “The WNT is part of the Whidbey

Island community and should be putting its efforts alongside ours to help find a way to solve the island’s problems, not publishing hit pieces like this one.” My response would be that the island does not seem to have a problem but a very small minority of individuals seem to have one. When one makes a statement about an “island problem,” should one not have a majority of residents complaining about the problem? Also, as a point of interest, I would ask Ms. Spina, or any COER member, why an option of opening up a third runway at NAS Whidbey would help alleviate the supposed “island problem?” Just because the loudest horn is in a room at a particular time does not make it the whole band. The ongoing saga of the status of OLF Coupeville has, in my opinion, reached a point of interest for Island County residents only as sideline participants. The federal government will decide to reopen the OLF during the Environmental Impact Statement process or not ­­­— their decision. If they decide to keep it closed, then the Citizens of the Reserve committee can declare a temporary victory: or if they reopen OLF, the COER can decide to restart their lawsuit. Local political officials on either side of the issue can make their comments, but it will be up to the federal government to reopen the OLF or not. When the EIS is completed, I believe that it will show no harmful effects that would bring the federal government to close OLF. In my opinion, the closure of OLF Coupeville would only be a political one and not a position based on economics.

Theft COER is unaffiliated Shutdown with Ebey’s Reserve Disappointed with Money from wiring Editor, The Ebey’s Landing Reserve is country’s leadership was to help vets an orqanization that was formed to protect the history of Col. Isaac Ebey and Ebey’s Landing. It has gained many people who are anxious to do this. There is a new group in Coupeville presided over by Ken Pickard. It has no connection to Col. Ebey or Ebey’s Landing. The title is meant to mislead people into thinking it is part of the original Ebey’s Landing Historical Reserve. Just to set matters straight, there are concerned citizens of the original group that want the public to know there is absolutely no connection between the two groups. Jean Sherman Coupeville

Support for flyers is real, not just words Editor, If you were asked, “Do you support the men and women in the service of this country?” I’m reasonably sure you’d say, “Sure!” Most citizens would. However, we who live in the Reserve are more fortunate than most citizens. By allowing the Navy pilots to practice overhead, we support them in reality, not just words. We’re all lucky to be able to do so — and of course proud. Nate and Suzy Palmer Citizens of Ebey’s Reserve

Jim Pace Oak Harbor

&

Editor, I read your Oct. 2 front page article about the government shutdown with much interest. I am a subcontractor who maintains the Commissaries at both Oak Harbor and Smokey Point. I work for J&L World Wide Services, and I am sitting at home because the stores have been closed. All of the Commissaries have been shuttered except the ones that are over seas. There are many people affected by this. The families of the men and women serving in the military are now forced to shop in commercial stores and pay the same high prices the rest of us do. This is an increased hardship that they should not have. Congress is required by law to fund these Commissaries and they are not doing that. Also, New Leaf employees are hired by the commissaries to stock shelves after hours and to provide janitorial services. There are also the many vendors/vendor employees, truck drivers and warehouse people that are feeling the effect of the government’s failure to meet their commitments to the people that they signed up to provide for and support. I am disappointed with the actions of the leadership of this nation, the United States of America.

Editor, On behalf of Whitehead-Muzzall Post No. 7392, Veterans of Foreign Wars, I would like to thank the person or persons unknown, who chose to break into one of our storage units and remove approximately 1,000 pounds of assorted wiring. It took us 10 months to collect it, sort it, and get it ready for recycling. You undoubtedly need the money more than our veterans do. We’ll find a way to replace that scholarship money, the emergency funds for a veteran in distress or any of the other ways that this money is used to benefit veterans. For the rest of you honest people, if you see a vehicle driving around with multiple blue barrels stuffed with old Christmas tree lights, used household wiring and miscellaneous scrap wiring, please let the sheriff’s department know at 360-678-4422. They have the case number. We now have plenty of storage room and would gladly accept any and all donations — everything from old Christmas tree lighting to extension cords to old power tool cords.

OBITUARIES

Beverly Joan (Beeksma) Kingma

Beverly Joan (Beeksma) Kingma died peacefully in her home on Oct. 2, 2013. A lifelong Oak Harbor resident, she was born Aug. 14, 1934 in Oak Harbor. Weighing just over 4 pounds, her parents, Egbert and Elizabeth (Nienhuis) Beeksma, proudly paid for her hospital costs with gold coins and brought her home in a shoebox. Bev was sister to and is survived by three brothers: Barney (wife Joyce) Beeksma of Oak Harbor, Edward (wife Cheryl) Beeksma of Oak Harbor, and Stanley (wife Marilyn) Beeksma of Auburn, Washington. Bev graduated from Oak Harbor High School in 1953. She attended Seattle

costs

Pacific College and then followed her sweetheart Ralph Kingma to Whitworth College in Spokane where she graduated with a Bachelor of Arts Degree in Education. Bev and Ralph were married June 18, 1955 at First Reformed Church in Oak Harbor, and they had celebrated over 45 years of marriage when Ralph preceded her in death Feb. 1, 2001. Bev and Ralph have three sons: Steve (wife Sarah) of Bellevue; John (wife Tammy), of Oak Harbor; and Gregg (wife Gail) of Mill Creek. Her boys were always and obviously the most important focus of her life. Because sports and particularly basketball were a significant part of her boys’ lives, Bev learned and became an enthusiast of all athletics. Every opportunity to watch her sons or grandchildren participate in any athletic or extracurricular event was a priority to her. Bev taught elementary school for more than 20 years and was known to be very patient and encouraging to each and every child, finding the best in each of her students. Following retirement she continued to volunteer at Oak Harbor Christian School tutoring and mentoring students who struggled with math, Bev’s favorite subject. Her love for education is a continuing legacy

left for each grandchild through what she crafted as “Grandma’s Scholarship Fund.” Her unique concept was featured in a nationwide documentary hosted by Willard Scott for the Edward Jones Investment firm network. Each of her 11 grandchildren: Kyle, Kaylea (Andrew Salinas), Ashley, Kristi, Jordan, Betsy, Brett, Kelli, Dan, Ryan and Brooke, receive grandma’s “scholarship” gift while pursuing their college dreams. Bev devoted her life to her family, and her love for her Lord and Savior Jesus Christ was evident through unselfish devotion to each and every member. She also had a particularly compassionate heart for those who are hurting. She deeply touched many lives with her gifts of love, visiting often those who are shutin or in need of comfort or encouragement. She ministered to countless people by sending caring, hopeful letters and cards to anyone she thought might need words of encouragement. Bev was an exemplary Christian wife, mother, grandmother, sister and friend, modeling the love of Christ by her unselfish life. Mom/Gramma is our family’s most devoted cheerleader. We will all take her often-shared words with us wherever our paths lead: “Go Get ‘Em!” Memorial gifts may be made in Bev’s name to the

Benevolence Fund of First Reformed Church in Oak Harbor. Private interment will be at Maple Leaf Cemetery. A graveside service will be 1:30 p.m. Sunday, Oct. 13, 2013, followed by a Celebration of Life at 3 p.m. at First Reformed Church, Pastor Matt Waite officiating.

CONTINUED FROM A1 Oak Harbor Finance Director Doug Merriman presented the City Council with “the cost impacts of archaeology” during a special workshop last Tuesday afternoon. “We are spending some of our wastewater treatment plant funds on archaeology,” he said, explaining that the city plans to build up funds for the project by gradually increasing sewer rates. So far, it cost the city $3.4 million to deal with the inadvertent discovery. The archaeological work is completed; the city hired experts to sift through 6,500 yards of dirt in piles throughout the city to find human remains and artifacts, the finance director said. Merriman said it’s unclear how much more much the city may have to spend. Reburial costs may be significant if the city must create a new cemetery and rebury the many piles of dirt, as has been proposed. There’s also ongoing legal costs associated with the Swinomish tribe’s lawsuit against the city. Merriman explained how he allocated the archaeology cost over several different funds based on how much soil was displaced during the project for each utility. A certain amount of soil, for example, was displaced to install water lines

and so the water fund was charged accordingly. The city used $872,000 in real-estate excise taxes to offset the costs. The rest was divided amongst the water, sewer, storm drain and arterial funds. Merriman said the water fund can absorb the $500,000 in costs assigned to the utility, or rates can be adjusted. The sewer and storm drain funds, however, will need increased revenues. Rates for the storm drain account will need to increase by about 19 percent for three years. That may sound like a lot, Merriman said, but it equates to just $2.21 a month extra for a ratepayer. In addition, the city’s arterial street fund paid out $353,000 for the archaeology costs. The fund, which pays for road construction projects, comes from gas tax dollars. Merriman said the arterial street projects will have to be cancelled for two to four years unless it’s subsidized by the general fund, or the increased utility taxes that will result from a hike in other utilities. He said the city lost out on a $1 million grant because $50,000 in matching funds weren’t available. Merriman said a utility rate study, which should be done in November, will incorporate the archaeology costs into rates. He explained that rates may also increase for other reasons, such as inflation and the wastewater treatment plant project. 884544

Oak Harbor backs trample Stanwood as Wildcats roll to big conference win

By JIM WALLER Sports editor

Oak Harbor’s threepronged rushing attack filleted another opponent, this time slicing Stanwood 42-3 Friday, Oct. 4, at Wildcat Memorial Stadium. The trio of Sheyenne Sams, Julian Faralan and Dejon Devroe continued its assault on the stat sheet and Wildcat foes by combining for 471 yards on 42 carries (an 11.2 average per tote) in the shredding of the Spartans. In all, Oak Harbor racked up 503 yards on the ground on 47 carries. The only thing that slowed the Wildcat rush was losing four fumbles. The running backs’ success was helped by the offensive line (Tyler Adamson, Jackson Constant, Matt Zafra, Mark Johnston and Blaine Coleman), which “played really well,” according to coach Jay Turner. The win put the ‘Cats in prime position to grab one of the two automatic playoffs slots allotted to the Wesco 3A North. Oak Harbor is 2-0 (4-1 overall) in league with two games left. A victory over Marysville Getchell in the next Wesco game Oct. 18 – homecoming for the Wildcats – will lock up the playoff berth. This Friday, Oak Harbor plays its final nonleague game when it hosts Mount Vernon in an intriguing matchup. The Bulldogs are 4-1 and are coming off a comeback win over the team that handed the Wildcats their only loss, Lake Stevens. Mount Vernon, led by former Coupeville coach Jay Silver, features a stingy

Oak Harbor’s Sheyenne Sams stiff-arms Stanwood’s Jett Whitcher in Friday’s big win. Sams rushed for 207 yards to lead a powerful Wildcat running attack. Dejoe Devroe, 21 above, added 98 rushing yards and Julian Faralan finished with 166 for Oak Harbor, which improved to 2-0 in Western Conference 3A North play. defense paced by an outstanding linebacking corps. The Bulldogs allow only 11 points a game and should challenge Oak Harbor’s ground game, which has helped the ‘Cats put up 36 points per game. In the win over Stanwood, it was Sams’ turn to lead the way. The senior ran for 207 yards on 15 carries; he also had runs of 60 and 20 yards erased by penalties. The highlights of his night were a pair of 59-yard runs. Faralan scored three touchdowns and finished

with 166 yards on 17 carries, including an 80-yard TD strike. Devroe had a 55-yard run on the way to 98 total yards on 10 carries. The two teams opened the game with similar drives. On Stanwood’s first play, quarterback Drew Wright threw down the line of scrimmage to Laurence Wanambisi, who slipped one tackle and raced 59 yards to the Oak Harbor 13. On fourth and two from the 5, Stanwood elected to kick a 22-yard field goal and led 3-0.

On Oak Harbor’s second play, Devroe zipped 55 yards to the Spartan 11. When Oak Harbor faced its own fourth-and-two, it went for it and Faralan scored. Johnston kicked the extra point. Two fumbles stopped promising Oak Harbor drives, then the Wildcats recovered a Spartan fumble at the Stanwood 35 midway through the second quarter. On third-and-goal from the 12, Sams shed several tackles on a spectacular run to give Oak Harbor a 14-3 lead with

Johnston’s kick. A series early in the third quarter proved to be the game’s most important. Stanwood, still in the game down 14-3, took over on the Oak Harbor 30 after a snap flew over the Wildcat punter’s head. The Spartans stalled out at the 11 and its field goal slid wide left. If the miss didn’t deflate Stanwood, the next play did. Faralan bolted 80 yards for a touchdown. Alex Waner, subbing for Johnston who turned his ankle, kicked

Overlake topples Wolves

Photo by Jim Waller/Whidbey News-Times

Coupeville’s Sebastian Davis slaps a backhand in the Wolves’ match with Overlake Friday. Davis lost the first singles match to the Owls’ Grant Gibson, but the Wolves picked up a win in doubles from Brian Norris and Kyle Bodamer.

Exciting doubles play highlighted Coupeville’s 4-1 loss to visiting Overlake of Redmond Friday, Oct. 4. The Wolves picked up their lone win in second doubles as Brian Norris and Kyle Bodamer rallied for a 5-7, 6-3, 10-6 win over Will Corrin and Sean Underwood. First doubles also produced a thrilling finish. The Owls’ Andrew Gavrila and Rich Chavez prevailed over Ben Etzell and Aaron Curtin 2-6, 7-6(7-3), 10-8. In third doubles, Coupeville’s Brandon Kelley and Jake McCormick fell to Tony Lee and Colin Sapp 6-2, 6-4. In singles action, Overlake’s Grant Gibson defeated Sebastian Davis in the No. 1 slot 6-1, 6-0. Pranav Harikrishnan took second singles from Coupeville’s Dalton Martin 6-0, 6-1. Coupeville picked up a win in the exhibition No. 5 doubles match from Connor McCormick and Loren Nelson. The Wolves (0-5) will entertain Archbishop Murphy (1-2) in the final regular season match at 3:30 p.m. Wednesday, Oct. 16. The Wildcats nipped Coupeville 3-2 Sept. 18.

Oak Harbor’s Mike Laningham hauls down Stanwood running back Kyle Jackels Friday.

football CONTINUED FROM A9 following kickoff return. Oak Harbor quarterback Clay Doughty, who completed his first and last passes on six attempts, lobbed a bomb to Devroe for a 41-yard score. With 5:15 left in the game, Faralan finished the scoring with a 3-yard run set up by Sams’ 59-yard romp. The Oak Harbor running game wasn’t the only Wildcat highlight. Oak Harbor’s defense

was as dominant. It recorded five sacks and limited Stanwood to only 237 yards. Wright finished 15-for-24 for 128 yards. Eighty-seven of the yards came on two plays, and five of the completions resulted in negative yards. Turner said the defensive front of Johnston, Adamson, Rhys Mattila and Constant put in another solid game to lead the attack. Oak Harbor’s defense, Turner said, was able to slow Stanwood’s tempo. With the line harassing Wright, the Wildcats were able to “gamble a little bit,” according to Turner, which further stymied the Spartans.

Wildcats drop pair of 6-1 matches Freshman Jackson Wezeman collected the only team points for Oak Harbor in the past two matches as the Wildcat fell 6-1 to visiting Glacier Peak Friday, Oct. 4, and visiting Stanwood Monday, Oct. 7. Wezeman won 6-4, 7-5 against Glacier Peak and 6-3, 6-2 against Stanwood. Oak Harbor (3-6, 4-8) goes

to Everett (3-5, 4-7) to meet the Seagulls at 3:30 p.m. Wednesday, Oct. 9. Other Glacier Peak results: Singles: 1, Harrison Miller lost 6-2, 6-1; 2, Carter Saar lost 6-0, 6-0; 3, Casiano Atienza lost 6-4, 6-1.

Pastor Paul Pluth leads a hymn during the “Blessing of the Pets” ceremony held at St. Mary Mission Catholic Church in Coupeville.

Hymns & howls

Dogs, cats take center stage as blessing of pets happens in Coupeville

By RON NEWBERRY Staff reporter

Piglet was howling. The anticipation was getting to be too much for the American pitbull terrier. John and Alacyn Coupe brought Piglet to St. Mary Mission Catholic Church for a special occasion in the town that John’s great-greatgreat grandfather, Capt. Thomas Coupe, founded. Piglet was going to be blessed. “She’s the best dog we’ve ever had,” John said. “We love her to death,” Alacyn said. With blue skies above and the sun shining on a magnificent fall afternoon, more than a dozen pets were blessed during an outdoor ceremony led by pastor Paul Pluth last Friday, Oct. 4, in Coupeville. It was part of tradition carried out at churches all over the world conducted in remembrance of St. Francis of Assisi’s love for all creatures. On hand were a pointer named Flynn, a Shih Tzu named Oreo, a cat named Boots, among other dogs and cats. “I did not bring my dogs with me because they’re

Pluth said he’s always liked the tradition because of how it brings together people from different faiths and communities. Their common thread is the bond they share with the pets they love. “It’s important to us,” said Peter Faberski of Coupeville. He and his wife Petra brought their 8-year-old, long-haired dachshund Binchen. “It means that we’re connected to God and we would like her to be included,” Peter said. The ceremony was quick.

After Pluth greeted the crowd and spoke, there were songs, then a prayer. The songs brought out the howls from Piglet. Eventually, it was time for Pluth to carry out the blessings. “We ask you Father to bless the animal friends here with us,” Pluth said as he made the rounds to each pet, lightly sprinkling them with holy water. One of the final pets Pluth encountered was Boots, a 12-year-old cat owned by Tom and Laurie Shade. Tom held Boots in his arms while the cat carefully observed the curious

canines around him. “He gets a little nervous,” Tom said. And for good reason. Boots survived a rattlesnake bite in Texas when he was 1. “We always bring him (to the blessings) after that,” Tom said, “so St. Francis can watch over him. “Now he has to worry about the deer chasing him.” Boots acted like he’d gone through this before. But to Piglet, who’s 10, all this was brand new. “We never had her blessed before,” John Coupe said. “We thought it would be a good idea.”
