Village by the bong? ‘We believe that our community is uniquely open-minded about this kind of business.’ — Mayor Fred McCarthy

Recreational marijuana may someday be for sale at a Langley retail location on Third Street. The city council is set to discuss zoning changes next week that could pave the way for a future store.

Langley to reconsider cannabis discussion By BEN WATANABE South Whidbey Record Following the recent adoption of state regulations for recreational marijuana, Langley city officials are now looking at their own pot-shop rules. The Langley City Council will discuss the issue at its regularly scheduled meeting Monday, Oct. 21, starting at 5:30 p.m. It will be the first time the city has addressed recreational marijuana sales and almost two years after rejecting a proposal to alter city code to allow medical marijuana dispensaries within city limits. “We believe that our community is uniquely

open-minded about this kind of business,” said Mayor Fred McCarthy. He was recently contacted by Pete O’Neil about possibly opening a store to sell recreational marijuana, which was legalized by a voters’ initiative in 2012. The mayor said the city’s denizens are likely to support the idea, so long as pot can stay out of children’s hands. “Our sense is that the residents of Langley will be open to this as long as there are provisions made to ensure that underage people are not unduly exposed to the presence of this business,” he said.

Langley is poised to strike on a potential business that other municipalities on Whidbey Island have shunned. Oak Harbor recently passed a six-month moratorium on recreational and medical marijuana businesses. Island County was allotted four retail locations: one in Oak Harbor and three at-large outlets. “It would be nice to be on the leading edge of the island to allow it,” said Councilman Bruce Allen. “I don’t have a problem with it.

Maxwelton Farm on South Whidbey has filed a land-use petition against Island County, claiming Planning Director David Wechner acted outside his scope of authority. Wechner sent a cease-and-desist letter dated Aug. 30 to Maxwelton Farms. He ordered them to stop work on water-filled agricultural ditches “as a result of agricultural ditch maintenance without a SEPA environmental checklist,” according to court documents. The State Environmental Policy Act, or SEPA, requires project managers to complete an environmental checklist, which asks questions about the potential environmental impacts to the air, animals, earth, land use, utilities, wetlands, groundwater and other considerations. The farm’s owners could not be reached, and attorneys for the farm did not return calls for comment. Saying Wechner acted with a “lack of authority,” the court documents allege that, while Island County code allows the planning director to issue a cease-and-desist letter for continued violations, it does not authorize the planning director to issue a letter on the grounds of a SEPA violation. “Furthermore, the Island County planning director does not have the authority to issue a cease-and-desist order directing that some activity occurring on property in Island County cease, unless Island County prohibits that activity or requires that some permit be secured …” the farm representatives argue. Maxwelton Farm and its predecessors operated a farm at the site for more than 50 years, according to the court documents, and therefore are governed by Island County’s “old” Critical Areas Ordinance.

doughnut sale helps students, teachers Students and parents took a bite into fundraising Wednesday, Oct. 16 selling Krispy Kreme doughnuts. The South Whidbey High School Parent Teacher Student Association raised $893 from selling 125 boxes of the famed doughnut. A box of 12 doughnuts sold for $12 or $1.25 for

singles. Money raised will go to staff grants, student scholarships and to support staff during appreciation days. This is the first time the group has sold Krispy Kreme doughnuts in more than 10 years. The association hopes to carry on the effort with two additional sales later this year. “The more successful we are the more we can help students,” said Shelly Ackerman, president of the association.

The Island County Board of Commissioners adopted a $71 million budget in a 2-1 vote Monday with Commissioner Kelly Emerson dissenting. Emerson said she did not support the board’s decision to increase property taxes by 1 percent, a measure that was approved by voters more than 10 years ago and is routinely implemented each year. “I will be opposed to this budget,” Emerson said. “I did not need the 1 percent increase this year or last year. It’s a little too much increase for me.” Having taken more of a hard-line approach to the budget, Emerson was unsuccessful in rallying support for the few initiatives she proposed that involved heftier budget reductions. Rigorous budget cuts in previous years have contributed to the county’s current $9 million reserve fund. Revenues outpaced expenditures by $1.6 million in 2011, $1.9 million in 2012 and this year’s projection are for a minimum of $1.5 million. Commissioner Jill Johnson became aware of

50,000 ballots this week for the Nov. 5 general election. Island County Deputy Auditor Michele Reagan said the ballots were expected to go out Oct. 16, but the statute allows for ballots to be mailed out as late as Oct. 18. “We’re going to beat that by a couple of days,” Reagan said last week. Even though ballots need to be postmarked by Nov. 5, the majority typically come in during the days leading up to the election deadline. Reagan said staff sees the largest number of ballots the day before, Election Day and the day after the deadline. Of the nearly 43,000 votes cast during the 2012 general election, nearly 14,000 ballots were received on those three days. People can also drop off ballots at several ballots located throughout Island County. For more information, go to

Coast Guard saves flooding vessel Oak Harbor motorcyclist dies following deer collision A 46-foot pleasure boat that began taking on water in Saratoga Passage remains afloat this week thanks to a little help from the U.S. Coast Guard. According a news release, Coast Guard Sector Puget Sound watchstanders received a Mayday call on VHF channel 16 from the 46-foot pleasure craft Estralita at approximately 4:45 p.m. Tuesday, the release reported. A MH-65 Dolphin helicopter crew launched from Air Station Port Angeles, Wash., and a 45-foot Response BoatMedium crew came from Coast Guard Station Seattle. Dolphin crew members lowered a rescue swimmer to assist the crew members of the RB-M in dewatering the boat. It was then towed to Everett Marina.

Collision causes delay on Brooks Hill Road By CELESTE ERICKSON South Whidbey Record A three-car accident shut down a lane of traffic on Brooks Hill Road for more than one hour on Wednesday. The accident occurred at the intersection of Brooks Hill Road at about 3:40 p.m., said Sergeant Laura Price with Island County Sheriff’s Office. A South Whidbey man driving a silver Volkswagen Passat crashed into a vehicle after failing to notice two cars ahead of him were slowing down, Price said. The vehicle rear-ended a red Pontiac Grand Am after the driver of that car slowed down for a third car that was turning left onto Crawford Road. No injuries were reported. According to Price, the driver of the first car, the Passat, said he did not see a turn signal or brake lights from the cars ahead of him, but there was enough time for him to slow down. “There was plenty of road way and time to recognize that,” she said. The man told police he was traveling between 43-45 mph in a 40 mph zone. Both the causing driver’s vehicle and the Grand Am received substantial damage, Price said. Air bags in the driver and passenger seats of the Grand Am were deployed after both the front and back end of the vehicle were crushed. The front of

An Oak Harbor man was killed early Thursday morning after his motorcycle was struck by a deer near Freeland, according to the Washington State Patrol. Trooper Mark Francis said 54-year-old Mark Albright, Sr. was with a group of five motorcyclists who were riding home after working at Boeing just after midnight. Island County Coroner Robert Bishop said Albright was slightly ahead of the group as they

drove north on Highway 525. Just south of Freeland, a buck jumped onto the road and struck Albright’s 2008 Harley Davidson motorcycle. Francis said first responders initially thought that Albright suffered a non-life-threatening injury and was transported to Whidbey General Hospital. Francis said a state patrol report indicates that Albright “rapidly deteriorat-

ed” at the hospital and died after a short period. The report states that he may have suffered “massive internal injuries,” according to Francis. Albright was wearing an approved helmet at the time of the collision. There was no evidence of impairment, the trooper said. Bishop said medical records show Albright was married with two children.

the Passat was also crushed. The third turning vehicle was able to drive away with little damage, she said. A $175 fine was issued to the causing driver. “People need to be aware and pay attention to cars in front of you and must leave enough room to stop,” she said. “If you hit them, you are the causing factor.”

Gianni, Gordon, Hezel are the right choices General election ballots were mailed out Wednesday and the South Whidbey Record’s votes are in. Beginning with the toughest endorsement of this November’s contested races, Rocco Gianni should be the next member of the South Whidbey School Board. A longtime teacher with 41 years of experience, the vast majority of which were spent in this community, he has the professional know-how, excitement and connection with students to make a valuable and lasting contribution. Betty Bond is an excellent candidate as well. Along with being extraordinarily qualified, she genuinely cares about education and those are qualities that should be admired. But she is still a newcomer to South Whidbey and when compared to another candidate that is equally qualified, in different ways, the choice is simple. This endorsement, however, is not a license to obstructionism. Gianni’s greatest strength, his passion, is perhaps his greatest shortcoming as well. Listen to the arguments, weigh them carefully and be flexible. Tough decisions are likely ahead and South Whidbey deserves a candidate who is willing, when needed, to set aside emotion and do what’s best for students. In the race for Port of South Whidbey commissioner, incumbent Curt Gordon deserves another six years. As a contractor and long-time elected official with past experience in public works projects, he is uniquely qualified to continue the port’s ongoing South Whidbey Harbor expansion effort. It’s been a tough project but one worth pursuing. This is the third time Ed Jenkins has challenged Gordon for a public office. He lost this same race to Gordon in 2009. But instead of spending the intervening years as a port volunteer and looking for ways to help, he’s put his energy into being a continued obstacle and sharp critic, particularly of the marina project. Jenkins went so far as to try and hamstring the effort last year by filing a lawsuit in Superior Court. The case was dismissed, but he remains adamant that the port is charging ahead blindly. Perhaps so, and Gordon would do well to consider some of his ideas, such as developing a future marketing plan. But Jenkins’ demeanor and his approach to disagreement cast serious doubt on his ability to work with others. Also, Jenkins indicated at a recent forum that Clinton — by the ferry terminal — is beyond saving. A port’s primary purpose is to foster economic development and any candidate who has already abandoned the area they are asking to represent is not the right person for the job. For South Whidbey Parks and Recreation, both candidates have their strengths and weaknesses but the job should go to Bob Hezel. He is young, 32, but he is

Upgrading our technology has been challenging but we are doing it. It is gratifying to be a part of the change in healthcare today. We value technology and we know how much this new technology means to our patients and their healthcare. They are going to receive more fluid healthcare with the new system. Our patients’ medical history is at our fingertips. Our physicians and nurses are able to pull up their patients’ medical records and promptly evaluate their needs. The hospital can’t, however, stop with an electronic medical record. We need to improve our aging facility so our patients can continue to receive quality and safe healthcare. We need to ensure our patients’ safety through the control of infection and provide for their privacy as they heal. This is for both the patients and their families. Our patients deserve respect and dignity during their healing process. We are excited that our community has an opportunity to improve our hospital through a remodel that will include rooms to support the new technology and provide privacy. This will make a difference for our patients who need hospitalization. We stand by our patients and their families. We encourage you to stand

Editor, I have been a South Whidbey resident for approximately 23 years. I have also voted in every election locally and nationally since turning 18 in 1972 with the exception of one year when I was overseas serving our country. I have seen many political ads in print and on TV. As in sports, we root for our favorite teams and players. It is the same thing in the political arena. In response to a political ad placed in the Oct. 12 issue of the South Whidbey Record titled, “Betty Bond The Most Qualified Candidate,” it reminds me of how politics work. You get a number of people with political clout to put their name on it and, “Oh, this must be the candidate to vote for because so-and-so said so.” It was a tasteful and respectful ad, I give you that. What it didn’t say was how long this candidate has lived on this island and how long has she served the South Whidbey community, who are the ones being told to put her in office. I must say that before this campaign started, I never heard of Betty Bond. When they tried to shut down the middle school, Rocco was involved. When you see a

Though Rocco retired this year, he is still involved in shaping our children’s lives. He is well respected by all the kids that I have ever spoken to. Though both candidates have impressive backgrounds in teaching, has Betty Bond ever taught in our school system? Please correct me if I am mistaken, but as I said earlier, I never heard of her before the campaign started. I believe that we as voters need to decide on what either person can do for this community and our children. I know Rocco taught two of my children over the years and knows our school system in and out. With all due respect to both candidates, it is time to make decisions based not on who you know but rather on what you can do for the children in the South Whidbey community. With the recent budget crisis our country now faces, I hope we have learned our lesson concerning paying attention to whom you vote for. Take the time, read the facts and use your right to vote. My vote is for Rocco Gianni. Thank you,

from South Whidbey and can serve a special role on the board as liaison to younger generations. Captn Blynd has expressed his desire to continue attending board meetings and to volunteer with the district even if he’s not elected. He should. Blynd has some good ideas and the district could benefit from his willingness to serve. Finally, vote ‘Yes” on Whidbey General Hospital’s $50 million expansion bond. Critics are quick to denounce the measure, saying it’s too much for a second-rate hospital. But trying to defeat a measure that is designed to address that very complaint is an argument that simply doesn’t hold water. Also, until the community decides collectively that it no longer wants its own public hospital, investing in the facility to keep it consistent with modern standards is both reasonable and prudent. While these endorsements are sure to have some shaking their heads in approval and others fuming in disgust, the South Whidbey Record would like to thank all those who stepped forward to participate in this election. Running for office is frightening and difficult. Candidates make their lives public and open themselves to fierce scrutiny and sometimes merciless ridicule, all out of a desire to serve their communities. We won’t all agree on who is best for each job, but their courage and their wish to make a positive difference in our lives is something we can all stand behind.

ages 12 hospitals and turns a profit while ours operates at a deficit which tells me that Copella is doing it right. The bond is intended to finance much-needed improvements, which I don’t dispute, but what I object to is the way the hospital board wants to do it. If the hospital were privately owned, the owners would make improvements at their own risk and expense in order to attract more patients and compete with other hospitals in the marketplace. Now let’s consider the bond. Interest rates are rising but if the hospital can secure a rating of BAA, which is still investment grade, the coupon or interest would be 4.25 percent on a $50 million loan. That’s $2.1 million in interest payments. After 25 years the interest, plus the loan, is $103 million. That is the actual cost of the project. Now consider this: after 25 years, wouldn’t it be reasonable to assume that yet more improvements may be needed and more calls for yet another hospital bond? Please join me in voting no on this measure.

Falcon volleyball cruises Sparkman records ‘hat trick’ against Coupeville By BEN WATANABE South Whidbey Record

By BEN WATANABE South Whidbey Record Playing for their postseason security, the South Whidbey Falcons rolled against their island volleyball rivals, the Coupeville Wolves, on Tuesday. South Whidbey dominated each set, winning 25-13, 25-12, 25-15, and securing a postseason in the 1A District 1 tournament. It was a bit of an improvement for the Falcons from their first meeting, when South Whidbey won in straight sets after narrowly claiming the first by three points. Something changed Thursday, however, and South Whidbey lost a hard fight to Lakewood, 25-14, 27-25, 25-23. The loss bumped the Falcons to third place after what was a three-way tie for second place in the Cascade Conference. Position in the conference, however, will not affect South Whidbey’s playoff position as the 1A second seed in the league behind King’s. Falcon junior hitter Abby Hodson led her team with 12 kills. She was followed by senior hitter Mackenzie Hezel with 11 kills and eight digs. Meagan Longdon, the Falcons’ senior setter, recorded 29 assists and nine digs.

Jim Waller / The Record

Falcon junior hitter Abby Hodson reaches for a tip kill against Coupeville on Oct. 15. South Whidbey’s rivalry win secured a 1A District 1 playoff spot. In the previous match, South Whidbey defeated Lakewood 3-1 at home. The Falcons have three regular season matches remaining this season, including two games against teams with 2-9 records, and an away game against Archbishop Murphy. Tournament play

is scheduled to begin Oct. 30 and run to Nov. 2. As the Cascade Conference’s second seed in 1A, South Whidbey will face the Northwest Conference’s third seed, which is currently Mount Baker’s (2-6 Northwest Conference, 2-8 overall) slot.

Wearing black jerseys, South Whidbey held a pseudo-funeral Tuesday for its past ineffective offense against its island rival Coupeville. Three goals are the most scored in a single game by South Whidbey this season. The Falcons rumbled to a 3-0 win that secured their place in the 1A District 1 playoffs. Maia Sparkman, a senior co-captain, stepped from defense to offense and recorded her first career “hat trick,” scoring each goal for South Whidbey. “Against some of the better teams, it made sense to play her in the back,” said Falcon head coach Ben Rusch. “She runs well with the ball and plays good passes.” Defensively, South Whidbey pushed their players up and were able to keep Coupeville on its half of the field much of the game. It was one of only three shutout wins by South Whidbey this year, and the second shutout against Coupeville. Possessing the ball with on-point passing proved critical to South Whidbey’s success. Rusch said his team worked well moving the ball away from Coupeville’s forwards and midfielders and was able to put pressure on the Wolves’ defense. “It really paid off for us.” On Thursday, South Whidbey fell in the final minutes to Lakewood, 3-2. The Falcons held the Cougars to 1-0 by halftime and quickly answered in the second half.

Jim Waller / The Record

Falcon senior Maia Sparkman receives a high pass near the Wolves’ goal on Oct. 15. The senior moved from defense to offense in the rivalry game and recorded three goals. Falcon junior Olivia Bolding took a pass from Sparkman through the defense and scored, tying the match at 1-1. Lakewood answered and held onto a 2-1 lead until the 65th minute. Falcon sophomore Annie Lux knocked in

her first goal of the year with a header off a corner kick by Sparkman to knot the game at two goals a piece. Lakewood turned up its offensive pressure in the waning minutes and eventually scored on South Whidbey, winning 3-2.

Regina lived in Maine until shortly after her marriage to Roland, when they moved to Plainville, Conn. There they raised three children and lived for many years before moving to Nokomis, Fla. where they enjoyed many happy and fulfilling retirement years. After the loss of her husband, Regina moved to Greenbank to live with her son and daughter-in-law. She was a loving wife, mother and friend. Besides being a wonderful cook, she was an accom-

Religion notes plished seamstress and knitter who was able to master any craft or artistic endeavor that she undertook, and she enjoyed teaching these skills to others. Wherever she lived, Regina was a caring and thoughtful member of the community, giving generously of her time and talents to many charitable activities, especially through her local church. She was truly a special lady who will be dearly missed by her family and all who knew her. Regina is survived by her children Judith Pratt and her husband Reginald of Neskowin, Ore.; Martha Plona and her husband Frank of Collinsville, Conn.; and Russell Ernest and his wife Debra Richardson, of Greenbank; her grandchildren Lisa Clagett, of Neskowin, Ore.; and Andrew and Christopher Plona of Collinsville, Conn.; and many dear relatives and friends in Connecticut, Maine, Florida and on Whidbey Island. She was predeceased by two brothers and four sisters, her granddaughter Tammie Triplett and her grandson Larry Plona. A celebration of her life will be held 10 a.m., Thursday, Oct. 31 at the Coupeville United Methodist Church. A private burial will be held in Connecticut at the convenience of the family.

Mary Spurgeon

Mary Spurgeon passed peacefully at her home on Oct. 9, 2013, at the age of 85. She was preceded in death by her husband Larry Spurgeon. In Mary, Larry found the love of his life. They moved to Clinton in 2002 and built their first house on the island at Scatchet Head where Mary created terraced gardens down the steep gulch by their home. Mary’s interests and friends were diverse. She was active in Daughters of Norway, despite her full Swedish ancestry

Young chef vies for cooking prize By CELESTE ERICKSON South Whidbey Record Lara Napoli doesn’t follow a recipe. The ten-year-old Clinton resident likes to put interesting foods together more than follow a set plan. She is hoping that skill shows in a video she submitted to win $30,000 for a cafeteria makeover of a South Whidbey school. The contest, called Ben’s Beginners Program, will award three young chefs between kindergarten and eighth grade the opportunity to fly to New York City and appear on the “The Rachel Ray Show,” where a grandprize winner will be chosen. The program aims to encourage children to cook with their parents and make

healthy eating choices. Cooking with parents, healthy foods and Rachel Ray all got the attention of Lara’s mother, Beth Napoli. She saw the contest advertised in a magazine and encouraged her daughter to submit her own dish. Lara, who is home schooled, agreed and made a breakfast rice casserole for the video, featuring the sponsoring brand Uncle Ben’s rice topped with eggs, sausage, onions and cheese. “I want to win so that I can get money for the school and give back to the community,” she said. Lara began cooking by helping her mother in the kitchen at an early age. She started by making play food: she would put noodles in water and pretend it was soup — without eating it. “I like cooking with my mom,” she said. She was always putting things together and asking what kinds of foods were what, said Beth Napoli. Pretty soon she was putting together tastes and combining foods. She said she enjoys watching her daughter’s natural talents develop with her age. In her family, she has

been nicknamed the “leftover queen” because of her ability to put whatever is in the fridge together for a meal. Her oldest sister Mikayla, 14, said she likes almost everything Lara makes, but good-naturedly complains that she’s a messy cook. “Sometimes if you go into the kitchen it’s like ‘Whoa, what’s going on here?’ ” Mikayla said. After tasting her creations, Lara said she is always thinking about how it could be better the next time. One of her favorite things to work on is presentation. For her grandmother’s birthday, she made a themed dinner after her grandmother’s favorite color — yellow. The meal featured a yellow-curry soup with peppers, pineapples and a yellow Jello for dessert. She’s also made a bugthemed dinner decorating tomatoes as lady bugs. “Forget a recipe, she just wants to create it,” said Beth Napoli. One day Lara hopes to be a caterer because of her love of decorating and presentation. For now, Lara has her hopes set on winning the contest so she can give back to her community. “I’m in it to win it, I like to win,” she said. Beth said she is proud of her daughter’s cooking skills and how well she articulated in the contest video. “I’m proud she is being responsible and sticking with it,” Beth said. “I’d like to see her win Lara has a lot

Laughs, spirits surround production of “Blithe Spirit” By CELESTE ERICKSON South Whidbey Record

A haunting presence has descended on the theater at Whidbey Island Center for the Arts. “Blithe Spirit,” a ghostly comedy directed by Clinton resident Phil Jordan, is playing through Oct. 26. Jordan said the play includes witty characterdriven humor and special effects. “We worked really hard on the special effects,” he said. “The audience will be surprised.” The play, set in the 1930s, follows a novelist named Charles Condomine, who invites Madame Arcati to his house to conduct a séance. At the séance, she accidentally summons the spirit of Charles’s first wife, Elvira. Elvira tries to interfere with Charles’ current marriage to Ruth. In an effort to bring Charles to the other side, Elvira unexpect-

edly brings Ruth. Charles then has two playful spirits on his hands, both of whom are seeking revenge. Jordan said the work is a comedic masterpiece with complex themes dealing with confronting mistakes and perseverance. The main character, Charles, came-of-age in the 1920s, which was a hard time for young people, Jordan said. They didn’t want to make the mistakes of their parents, and their peers were confronted with the end of the First World War and Spanish flu outbreak. The play was written by Noël Coward and first debuted in 1941. Jordan said he enjoys working with all members of the cast. “I love directing and love working with young actors and finding ways to explore the script,” he said. “I enjoy trying to explore what Noël Coward was getting at.” The cast includes Miles Harrison as Charles Condomine,

got VW/Audi? Pat and Alex McMahon

Mother & daughter first responders While it is not uncommon for sons to follow in their fathers’ footsteps and become firefighters, it’s more rare to find a mother-daughter team of first responders. But Pat and Alex McMahon, volunteers with the South Whidbey Fire/EMS team, both admit it fits their personalities. Every incident is unique and challenging, requiring everyone to work as a team and think on their feet. Pat and Alex encourage other women. In near unison—the way many mothers and daughters tend to communicate with each other—they said, “Knowing how to help people in their time of need and being able to change a situation for the better is very rewarding.” Recently, Pat’s other daughter Kelly, also passed her EMT course training to join the team.

Jerry Beck

Captain of his very own Mayberry Even if you’ve never met volunteer firefighter Jerry Beck, you probably know where he lives. That’s because every Christmas season, the Beck family decorates their house with up to 30,000 lights, creating a drive-through holiday extravaganza. There’s even a computer-operated FM stereo radio station that plays favorite carols and music of the season. It’s not surprising the Beck family gives this annual gift to Whidbey Island. They see their lives here as a gift from God. “We were living in Contra Costa County in California, and we made a trip to Whidbey to visit the in-laws,” said Jerry. “We fell in love with the place immediately. To us, it was like Mayberry, complete with Andy, Opie and Aunt Bea. We wanted to move here.” Jerry had been a volunteer firefighter in California since 1981, and upon arriving on the island, he joined the South Whidbey Fire/EMS. For more visit: or

Move the vessel to a location that has authorized the vessel. To redeem the vessel once DNR has taken custody, or challenge DNR’s decision to take custody or temporary possession, the owner must file a written request (one original and one copy) for a hearing with the Pollution Control Hearings Board, in person at 1111 Israel Rd, Tumwater WA, or by mail to PO Box 40903, Olympia WA

going to be four on the island, and we might as well be one of them.” Lucas Jushinski, who owns Island Alternative Medicine, a medical marijuana dispensary in Freeland, said he has no interest in operating a store in Langley, though he is considering one in Freeland at a different location. One of the previous issues with allowing a medical marijuana dispensary in Langley, as Jushinski proposed in

2012, were the restrictions on such a business’s location. A 1,000-foot buffer around any parks or schools, of which downtown Langley has many, was a major sticking point. The location of Langley Middle School puts the downtown core in close proximity, plus there are several parks in Langley — Boy and Dog, Hladky, Second Street — that would preclude a store from opening its doors. But McCar thy, Councilman Doug Allderdice and Allen think they may have a suitable location at the edge of city limits. A build-

with that building’s current tenants and the lease holder about allowing someone to operate a recreational marijuana store there. “Do we want that here or not? We have to decide that as a council,” Allen said. “Personally, I have no objection to it.” Washington’s Liquor Control Board, the agency in charge of governing legal marijuana sales, set a maximum of 334 locations across the state in September. Also, a total of 40 metric tons of marijuana can be produced annually under the rules. A retailer may only carry four months of its average inventory in the licensed location. Marijuana sales licenses cost $250 for the application and $1,000 for an annual renewal.

ing on Third Street, near the intersection of Coles Road and Brooks Hill Road/Third Street, may work — with a zoning change. The building, which currently houses chiropractic offices and massage therapists, is zoned for commercial, not retail. “It’s a fairly minor zoning change,” McCarthy said. Allderdice and Allen planned on bringing up the issue with the council Monday and gauging their colleagues’ interests in allowing the business. From there, they would begin discussing

Under that ordinance, the court documents claim, existing and on-going agricultural work at Maxwelton Farm is exempt if best management practices are maintained. The farm’s manager was told by a previous Island County critical area planner that ditch maintenance work could be done during the dry part of the summer and that no permit was required. Since that time, Island County has taken a different position on the issue, but the manager claims he has not been able to determine what exactly the change entails, according to court documents.

Wechner said via email that Maxwelton Farm “filed a petition in response to our cease/desist order regarding some excavation within the Maxwelton Creek watershed. We have communicated with the property owner, and are working out a solution to resolve water quality degradation concerns without litigation.” However, citing the litigation, he declined to comment further. The land-use petition also claims that three representatives from the Island County planning office went onto the Maxwelton Farm property “without advance notice to or permission” after the Aug. 30 letter was sent, “apparently for purposes related to investigation and/or defense” of the letter. According to the petition’s “statement of facts,” Maxwelton Farm’s facilities have long included a system of drainage ditches which feed into a main arterial ditch which then empties into Maxwelton Creek. This system has been separated from the creek with a tidal gate as long as the property has been farmed. Maxwelton Farm is asking a judge to reverse Wechner’s land-use decision and to refund the $1,802 administrative appeal fee paid by the farm.
