Paggao faces off against Iraq vet By JESSIE STENSLAND Staff reporter

Voters will choose in the upcoming election between the elder statesman on the Oak Harbor City Council and a former bomb disposal technician who would undoubtedly bring a new level of intensity to the elected body. Councilman Danny Paggao, the mayor pro tem, has served 20 years on the council and is seeking another four. He said his goal is to help make the city the “most livable” in the country. “We were named as one of the top 10 most livable cities,” he said. “I would like to see us at No. 1.” Michael Piccone served two back-to-back tours of Iraq. His Explosive Ordnance Detachment team defused roadside bombs and trained Iraqi solders; he was medically discharged due to a back injury. He is a stay-at-home dad for two young boys and wants to bring new ideas and renewed energy to the city. “It is time for new thinking and fresh ideas on the City Council,” he said.

Faith, friends and family crucial in defeating cancer

Paggao and Piccone have very different styles of leadership. Paggao is a consistently calm voice on the council and has never been involved in the bickering that occasionally reared up over the last 20 years. Paggao explains his position, but rarely expresses strong feelings about issues. One exception, however, is See Council, A12

County to hold hearing on pot

‘Look beyond the storm, and you can find the good’

fter a long Labor Day weekend in 2009, Patricia “Annie” Martin learned she had breast cancer. Shortly after the discovery on Oct. 6, 2009, she underwent a lumpectomy to remove the 4.7 centimeter tumor, along with the 13 lymph nodes. This was only the beginning on

her road to recovery. Martin said the fear of not knowing what the treatment entailed was scary, and she asked God to show her a sign that it was going to be OK. During her first chemotherapy appointment, when they brought out the red medicine, she said she saw it as a symbol for the blood of Christ. That, she said, gave her the strength she needed.

With little discussion, Island County commissioners set a date for the public hearing on a proposed moratorium on new marijuana production and sales. The commissioners will hear public comment at 10:15 a.m. Monday, Nov. 4, in the commissioners’ hearing room at the county courthouse. The county is following the lead of the Oak Harbor City Council, which adopted a sixmonth moratorium on new marijuana production and sales on both recreational and medical marijuana last month. The move to control the industry is in response to the passage of Washington State law Initiative 502, which allows for the production, sale and use of recreational marijuana. While the commissioners agreed last month to inform the state of their plans for a moratorium, they have yet to review draft moratoriums or talk about specific regulatory options. While the details of the law are still being hammered out, the state Liquor Control Board announced plans to roll out specific procedures and criteria by Dec. 1 2013, according to the resolution to adopt the moratorium. A six-month moratorium would allow the county to

Rule’s Freeland book signing canceled after fall Author’s latest book is about ’03 murder on Whidbey By JESSIE STENSLAND Staff reporter

Ann Rule’s book signing event in Freeland last Sunday was cancelled after the famous true-crime author fell and broke her hip. Rule’s latest book, “Practice to Deceive,” focuses on the 2003 Christmastime murder of Russel Douglas, whose body was found inside an SUV on a South Whidbey backroad. Former South Whidbey resident James Huden was convicted of the murder in Island County Superior Court and his mistress, former beauty queen Peggy Sue Thomas, was also charged

in the murder, but pleaded guilty to rendering criminal assistance. “It’s a case with enough drama, greed, sex, and scandal to be called ‘The Real Housewives of Whidbey Island,’” but this was not reality television,” the Amazon. com book description states. “This was murder: pure, cruel, ugly, and senseless. And someone had to pay the price.” F r e e l a n d resident Shirley Hickman, Rule’s longtime friend, said the author fell while staying at a Freeland motel Saturday night. After doctors at Whidbey General Hospital found the fracture, Rule was transferred to Virginia Mason. Hickman said she underwent surgery Monday. “She was really disappointed,” she said. “She was so looking forward to meeting various people.” Detective Mark Plumberg,

Freeland resident Shirley Hickman takes notes at a murder trial for her friend, true-crime author Ann Rule. She helped Rule with her newest book about a Whidbey Island murder. Prosecutor Greg Banks and others involved in the case had planned to attend the event. Hickman said Rule will likely reschedule the event, probably after the holiday season. Hickman said she’s known Rule since 1961 and sup-

ported her as she rose to fame. She famously worked with serial killer Ted Bundy at a crisis hotline center and wrote “The Stranger Beside Me” about him. Hickman said she alerted

Rule to the Douglas murder case. She even took notes during the Huden trial and the sentencing hearings for the book. “It was very interesting,” she said. “Ann was very

pleased with my work. She couldn’t believe how detailed my notes were.” Hickman also took notes for Rule during the recent trial and sentencing of Robert “Al” Baker. The Greenbank man and pizzeria owner killed his wife and hid her tarp-wrapped body in their backyard while his girlfriend visited. Hickman said she and Rule’s other friends are urging her to write an autobiography after finishing with the book on Baker. In acknowledgements at the end of “Practice to Deceive,” Rule thanks a long list of Whidbey Island officials, including Plumberg, Banks, paralegal Michelle Graff, court reporter Karen Shipley, the Superior Court judges and others. She also thanked the South Whidbey Record.

Zombies rise up on Midway Boulevard Saturday By SARA HANSEN

I

Staff Reporter

f you’re planning to leave the house on Saturday, keep an eye out for zombies. They’re coming to a street near you. The Monster Mash Street Bash is a new event aimed at bringing more business to merchants on Midway Boulevard, according to Kathy Reed, Oak Harbor Chamber of Commerce executive director. The fun is from 4 p.m. to 9 p.m. Saturday, Oct. 26. “This will lead up to the zombie crawl, or hobble, walk — whatever they need to do,” Reed said. “So folks can get their zombie on.” Central headquarters for the event is at Trader’s

Village, but activities will take place all along Midway Boulevard. The zombie crawl is at 6 p.m. at Whidbey Playhouse, but people can arrive at 4 p.m. to take zombie dance lessons, such as the Monster Mash and Thriller, and have their makeup done, said Allenda Jenkins, playhouse board member. Shirts will also be available for people to wear. “WAIF donated 100 shirts we’re going to zombify,” Jenkins said. For those interested, Jenkins said RSVPs are appreciated, but not required to participate. Once the crawl starts, one lane of traffic will be closed off so the zombies can safely make their way down the boulevard, Reed

said. Police will escort the procession, and three lanes of traffic will still be open. Many different businesses are offering a variety of activities for participants as the walkers make their way down the street. ClickMusic will have dancing for the Monster Mash participants, said ClickMusic owner Avi Rostov. It gives people the opportunity to dance and hangout. Rostove said the venue is large so people can be active and spend time together as a community. They started decorating on Tuesday afternoon but won’t make it too scary because a lot of young kids come into the store. Oak Bowl and Mario’s Pizza will offer glow bowling, and Tee to Green will also have zombie golf. A haunted graveyard will

be set up at the Edward Jones office. The graveyard will be in the front parking lot with Halloween decorations, lights and creepy music. The set-up will begin on Saturday, said Jeffery Pleet, Edward Jones financial advisor. “For our first time participating we wanted to make it cute and fun for the kids,” Pleet said. Pleet said he was looking forward to being one of the stops along the walk and would be handing out candy to walking dead. Besides the zombie walk, a jack-’OH’-lantern contest will also take place. Other children’s activities will be held there, as well as showings of old horror movies, Reed said. n For more information about Saturday’s events, call 360-675-3755, or log on to www.oakharborchamber.com

Sewage plant reveals divide

‘Drug Take Back’ is slated for Saturday By JANIS REID Staff reporter

City Council candidates speak at voters’ forum By JESSIE STENSLAND Staff reporter

Candidates for Oak Harbor City Council are divided in their opinions about plans for a new wastewater treatment. The plant, estimated at $93.5 million, will be the city’s biggest project ever. The eight candidates answered a series of questions during a voters’ forum Thursday night at the Elks Club. The League of Women Voters of Whidbey Island hosted the event. The candidates generally agree on most of the issues, but a question about the sewage treatment plant drew out some differences. Michael Piccone, who’s running against Councilman Danny Paggao, was the most outspoken about his concerns. He said he’s heard from a great number of Oak Harbor residents who said

Lucas Yonkman, a City Council candidate, speaks during a forum last Thursday put on by the League of Women Voters of Whidbey Island. they don’t want the treatment plant in or around Windjammer Park. “We see what happens when we rush things,” he said, referring to the Pioneer Way construction project that resulted in the unearthing of a Native American burial ground. He suggested that the city should partner with the Navy and build it on Navy property. “Maybe we don’t have to put it in Windjammer Park,” he said. Lucas Yonkman, who’s challenging Councilman Bob Severns, said he’s concerned about building the plant in the park and about plans for the outfall. “If we have a chance to relocate it so it’s not in

the gem of the city and it’s financially responsible, that’s what I would do,” he said. Sandi Peterson, who’s running against Councilman Joel Servatius, said she’s unsure whether it is cost effective to delay the project so that officials have time to reconsider the siting. “If you delay something to get it right, then maybe you’re saving money in the long run,” she said. Severns emphasized that the current plan isn’t to locate the plant in Windjammer Park, but outside the park on Pioneer Way. In fact, he said the city could end up with more park space — as well as “wonderful enhancements” to downtown — when the project is complete.

Paggao pointed out that Mayor Scott Dudley cast the tie-breaking vote in favor of building the plant in the “Windjammer vicinity.” He said he agrees with the placement decision. Servatius said a delay in the project would certainly increase the costs. He said it’s still possible that the Navy will partner with the city on the project. Councilman Jim Campbell said the council and city staff are working on ways to keep the costs down. He said phasing the project will spread the costs out over time. Skip Pohtilla, Campbell’s opponent, said he thinks the Navy will come through and work with the city on the project.

There is more than one reason to hand over unused and expired prescriptions to law enforcement agencies this Saturday. Oak Harbor Police, the Island County Sheriff’s Office and the Coupeville Marshal’s Office are holding their sixth, “Drug Take Back.” The goal of the program is to get unwanted medicine out of people’s homes in order to prevent accidental poisonings, drug abuse and drugseeking burglaries. Safe disposal also keeps hazardous medicines from polluting the environment. While it may seem a good idea to flush unused medications, drugs flushed into a septic system can eventually end up in the island’s ground water, according to Keith Higman, public health director for Island County. Approximately 70 percent of Island County uses septic systems and relies on groundwater, so flushing medications can have longterm and detrimental effects. “We ought not put anything in our sewer systems that may be toxic,” Higman said. In addition, medications that are simply thrown in the trash or kept around the house can end up in the wrong hands, Higman said. Those hands could be a

drug seeking criminal element, or family and friends of the prescription’s owner. “There is an abundance of prescription medication abuse in both adults and youth,” Higman said. “If narcotics are part of what we collect, it’s getting them out of the stream of potential use by adults and youth.” Higman said that studies conducted on sixth through 12th graders indicate that prescription drug use is very common because they are “easy to access.” Residents may drop off any and all medications between 10 a.m. and 2 p.m. Saturday, Oct. 26, at the Oak Harbor Police Department on Barrington Avenue, the Town Marshall’s Office on Seventh Street in Coupeville and the South Precinct on East Harbor Road, Freeland. Hundreds of pounds of pills from Whidbey residents have been collected and sent to the Drug Enforcement Agency in Spokane for incineration at previous events. Last year, one cancer patient’s family brought in seven pounds of medication for disposal last year, and other man surrendered a bag full of pills dating from the 1960s.

our viewpoint

Vote to support Whidbey General expansion project Whidbey General Hospital is asking voters to approve a $50-million bond to fund expansion and renovation of the hospital. While this proposal isn’t perfect and the measure could have been better promoted, Whidbey Island residents need and deserve a local hospital that provides up-to-date facilities and care. This is virtually the same measure that failed in May 2011. While nearly 56 percent of voters cast ballots in favor of the bond, it fell short of the 60 percent supermajority needed for approval. More than half of voters saw the importance of supporting Whidbey General, and hopefully more have come to understand the need to improve the facility. The bond would pay for a new hospital wing with 39 “smart rooms” featuring advanced technology which, hospital officials say, will provide safer and better quality care. The rooms that would be built if the bond is approved would provide better infection control, increased privacy and more space for equipment and visitors, hospital supporters say. Critics of the bond say single patient rooms are a luxury and unnecessary. Not so, say hospital officials. Single rooms are not a luxury, hospital representatives say. They are a necessity — the accepted standard in hospital care today. Other key points hospital officials want voters to know is that the current infrastructure is outdated. The building was designed in the 1960s. The bond, they say, is needed because the current facility isn’t energy efficient, doesn’t provide optimum ventilation, fails to meet current standards for noise control and does not allow installation of safe patient handling equipment, including lifts in the ceiling. Increasing infection control standards and newer patient privacy laws and standards require an updated facility, bond proponents say. Yes, the hospital could have done a better job promoting this bond. Regardless, the responsibility is ours to ensure we have the best medical facility possible in our back yard. Vote to support the hospital expansion on Tuesday, Nov. 5.

Letters to the editor Outlying field

Don’t rely on emotion to support argument Editor, In response to Michael Monson’s letter to the editor Oct. 19, I would first like to commend him on his opening statement, but then respectfully question him on his lengthy list. A list about freedom, democracy, health, safety, residents moving due to noise, etc. plays well but needs some background to put it on firm ground. If there is common knowledge that this is happening on a large scale then one must have concrete knowledge of its existence and then a community can rally and put its weight behind the issues to try to solve the problems. Concrete knowledge moves a community — emotions, not so much. One may take the time to wonder why “supportive signs are everywhere,” yet as his last comment of “noise for the rest of us” is justified.

I would like to take this time to rectify one position of Monson’s letter. He implies that the money is going to a few and the majority of residents are being left out. To help ease that portion of his premise, I will volunteer to do the following — I will write a check for $200 to either the Seattle Children Hospital or Saint Jude Hospital, his choice, in his name, if he can explain how the Navy impaired the majority of Island County citizens’ way of life since he purchased his home and moved onto Whidbey Island. I would respectfully request that he use facts and figures to back his claim and not emotion. I will grant him the fact that his property value since he purchased his home in a Navy flight path has gone down but would humbly suggest that maybe 2008, as with most Island County property owners, had something to do with it. Other then that exception the table is wide open. If one wants to shout to the heavens instead of a simple civil debate then one might find themselves left off the horn section of the band.

Build touch-and-go strip on Smith Island Editor, Without fanfare, I offer the following solution to the OLF noise problem: Build a touch and go runway on Smith Island. An abandoned Navy facility has occupied the surface of Smith Island for years. Building a touch and go strip there would: n Remove the excessive noise that currently harms the well being of OLF’s nearby residents. n Provide a training runway essential for maintaining the high quality skills required of aviators. n If a building bond, something akin to tax-free municipal bonds, could fund this, anyone wishing to invest in the bond would enjoy some tax-free income, providing economic growth to anyone who wants it. Because a good attorney’s real job is to solve problems for clients, those representing residential interests could contact Congressman Larsen, who could press for this solution for them.

More letters The attorneys representing Whidbey Island Naval Air Station could contact the Secretary of the Navy, who could also press for such a solution. The parties involved would have what they need. This is the art of compromise, giving each other what each party needs, not necessarily giving up something. We, including myself, blame our elected officials for their contentious selfishness. However, I cannot help but think they reflect something of us. We, by example, could demonstrate the leadership our country needs. Vincent M. Hagel Oak Harbor

Port of Coupeville

Cast your vote against status quo Editor, I see the Port of Coupeville commissioners’ race very simply. If you are happy with the port’s management and how they take care of the Coupeville Wharf and Greenbank Farm, then vote for the two ol’ boys who will continue the status quo — Patton and Diamanti. If you are not happy with the way your tax dollars are managed or their stewardship of the wharf or farm, then you have a unique opportunity for change. The port’s board of commissioners has three positions. Two of them are up for election. Voting in Dick Bowen and Bill Larsen changes the balance of power. They are both smart, competent guys that can make a difference. I am voting for change and urge others to join me by voting for Dick Bowen and Bill Larsen. Laura Blankenship Coupeville

Disabled vets

Annual drive is in need of your help Editor, The Disabled American Veterans of Whidbey Island, Local Chapter No. 47 will conduct its annual “Forget-Me-Not” drive 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. Saturday, Nov. 9, at various businesses in Oak Harbor. The financial support we receive through donations is vital to sustain the work of our local chapter which operates as an all-volunteer organization. The first time the DAV members ever sold the little blue forget-menot flowers to the public was Feb. 24, 1926. The drive helped raise funds to support Disabled American Veteran services and provide assistance desperately needed by veterans disabled in World War I. Our mission has not wavered; our duty is to support veterans of all

conflicts and wars. Locally, we help veterans who have served this country since World War II through the current wars in Iraq and Afghanistan. Every penny of your donation goes directly to our transportation program and toward the purchase of a new van which supports our local veterans in their transportation needs to get to the Seattle VA hospital. Currently our van that we use to transport veterans to their medical appointments in Seattle has 180,000 miles on it. The Veteran’s Administration Regulations dictate the safe usable service life of the van to be 200,000 miles. With the Island County Veterans Assistance Fund declining to provide a grant as it has in the past, your donations are more crucial than ever. In the past, local support has been so great that we have been able to maintain the transportation needs for veterans who may suffer physically or emotionally, rendering them incapable of getting themselves to Seattle for medical appointments. Come out and support us as we continue to support our local veterans for the sacrifices they made defending our freedoms and way of life. Michelle McClain Chapter Adjutant Oak Harbor

Oak Harbor council

Severns able to make tough calls Editor, Bob Severns deserves our vote to remain on Oak Harbor City Council. He truly cares about Oak Harbor and has represented the citizens well. Bob Severns is an independent thinker and a successful businessman, plus he does his “homework” before the council meetings begin. We like that. Our city has difficult decisions ahead and we need Bob to continue on our council to get the job done. Please join us in voting for Bob Severns for city council. Bob and Barb Jacobs Oak Harbor

Cast vote to retain Danny Paggao Editor, Danny Paggao deserves to be retained in the City Council Position No. 7. He is running for reelection because of his deep desire to serve the people of Oak Harbor. He is passionate about his duties as a council member and to proudly represent our city that he came to love. He continues to work toward his dream to make Oak Harbor No. 1 on the list of the most livable small town in the nation.

Danny is not in the council to serve the agenda of any political party or interest groups. People reelected him repeatedly because he is someone that could be trusted. He will always be the voice for all people regardless of race and status. His critics said he has been in the council for too long, but the fact is that Danny has done many good things for our city and will continue to do so in the quiet kind of way. He listens to people’s ideas and concerns and then addresses them to the city council for discussion and action. All the volunteer work he has done in the past and currently is proof of his genuine commitment to serve our community through Habitat for Humanity, New Leaf, Oak Harbor Educational Foundation and Public Works and Utilities Standing Committee. He has also showed strong leadership when he was the president of the Fil-Am Association for two successful terms and remained as one of the advisors. Danny is a kind, decent and generous person but his honesty and integrity are undeniably in the forefront of his overall character. He has earned the trust and respect of his colleagues and anyone who knows him. His fellow council members chose him to be the mayor pro tem, serving since 2002. His experience in the business of the city is instrumental in running a good government. His long term service is not in any way a detriment to the council. No “new blood,” as his opponent likes to quote, will effectively serve the city and its citizens especially if his allegiance is to the current mayor. Danny served our country honorably for 23 years in the Navy, then retired from his second career as a financial management specialist. He is the recipient of various awards and achievements, too many to mention here. His work ethic is impeccable as such that he always does fact-finding research and attends the council meetings well prepared and learned. He is that committed and dedicated to his duty as a council member. I respectfully ask each of you, my fellow voters, to join me in reelecting Danny Paggao for Position No. 7. Send in your ballot by Nov. 5. Daisy Sapida Oak Harbor

Peterson best choice for City Council seat Editor, Sandi Peterson has been a friend of my family’s since 2001 when we first moved to Oak Harbor. I was stationed at CVWP with her husband, Brian Peterson, while I was still on active duty. In 2008, we became closer friends when I became sick and I had few

available to help me. Sandi has always been there for my family and myself whenever we needed her without question. This same determination to help when needed is something I totally see her bringing to our community at a time when we need healing. There has been so much turmoil over the years that I was thrilled when Sandi told me she was running for Oak Harbor City Council. As my children grew into productive adults, as well as voters, they have always gone to Sandi for clarification of something on the ballot that was not clear. The best thing about Sandi is she researches the subject matter, becoming an expert on both sides. She does not pick one side over the other because of her political views. She keeps a level head and an open mind. My children always felt better educated on the issue at hand after talking with Sandi. I have heard a few rumors that people feel she is mean or even unapproachable. This is far from the truth. She has always been willing to help those who truly need a hand as well as gone out of her way to provide assistance to those who have problems in their lives. When life has handed me more than I thought I could handle, I always had Sandi there to help me calm down and see things with a clear head. On Election Day, please support my dear friend. I do not think we could get better representation. Justina (Tina) Baldwin Oak Harbor

Eat and Treats. Our “SIPS” donated their wine and beer. MoJo Filter played for the dancing pleasure of our guest and was sponsored by Whidbey Island Bank. We had the honor of having many “Celebrity Servers.” They were Mark Brown, Island County sheriff; Linda Gipson, Whidbey General Hospital’s chief nursing officer; Jackie Henderson, Island County human services director and Coupeville Town Council; Jill Johnson-Pfeiffer, Island County commissioner; Jeff McMahan, Walmart manager; Joe Mosolino, Windermere Real Estate, Freeland; Kathi Phillips, ReMax Acorn Properties; Joel Servatius, Oak Harbor City Council; Jim Slowik, Navy League president and People’s Bank; and Tom Tomasino, Whidbey General Hospital’s CEO. Stephanie Smith of Wells Fargo Bank added her humor as our “mistress of ceremony.” Wonderful background music during the first hour of the event was provided by Lowell Sipes, North Whidbey Middle School. Much planning went into the event and could not have happened without Jim Cloore, Michelle Curry, Michele McKenna, Bill Weinsheimer, Kathi Phillips and the United Way of Island County board of directors. The event was such a success as a fundraiser that we are already planning for next year. We truly appreciate all those involved for their support of United Way of Island County and this community event. Cathy Niiro, executive director United Way of Island County

United Way ‘wine cellar’ a big success

Hospital bond

Editor, Thanks to the many donors and attendees that made our Instant Wine Cellar that was held on Sept. 20, a huge success. This event raised $9,528 through admission, raffle tickets and a generous matching gift from the Island Thrift board of directors. The community overwhelmed us with their generosity for the event. We were able to get all the wine and beer for the “Instant Wine Cellar” and “99 Bottles of Beer on the Wall” raffle donated by United Way Board Members, Flyers’ Restaurant and Brewery, Whidbey Beer Works, Bayleaf and few generous supporters of United Way. A Wine refrigerator was donated by Mark Brown and Kathi Phillips and three wine tours for eight were donated by Spoiled Dog Winery, Holmes Harbor and Whidbey Island Winery. Seven restaurants participated as our “BITES.” They were Cameron’s Café, Elk’s Lodge, Fraser’s, Flyers Restaurant and Brewery, Louie-G’s, Whidbey General Hospital and Yummies’

Editor, We came to Whidbey General Hospital as new physicians about 35 years ago. In 1979 the modern inpatient area was an important determinant in our lifetime career choice. Over time surgery has increased, inpatient medical care has increased and many new facilities and services have emerged including Medical Ambulatory Clinic, new and expanded emergency room, updated imaging with state of art MRI, the Life Center for Essential Wellness and Whidbey Family Birthplace. However, the inpatient area has changed little from when it was built. Professionals have evaluated the needs and again and again recommend a new wing. We believe it is time for all of us to step up to support the bond to keep great medical care local and keep local medical care great.

It’s time to invest in your local hospital

Ross Bennett Mathis

Ross Bennett Mathis, 84, longtime Coupeville resident, passed away following an extended illness in Lynnwood, Wash., on Oct. 18, 2013. Mathis was born in Lamesa, Texas, on April 23, 1929, to Walter and Rosalie (Woolsey) Mathis and was the youngest of seven children. Born just before the beginning of the Great Depression, Ross and his family worked as tenant farm workers around West Texas, picking cotton and beans. At times, they were homeless and he recalled sleeping under bridges or out under the stars. His formal education stopped after the seventh grade, but he continued to educate himself and prac-

ticed drawing and painting with his mother, also an artist. In later years he went on to take civil engineering courses at the University of Washington. Ross enlisted in the Navy in 1947. He was injured while on duty and was sent to the naval hospital in Bremerton, Wash., where he first fell in love with the Pacific Northwest. After he recovered from his injury and was discharged from the Navy in 1948, Ross bought a strawberry farm in Deming, Wash., and invited several of his family members to live and work on the farm. His older brothers trained him to become a bricklayer and stone mason. A decade later, Ross set sail on a passenger ship to Australia, where he worked as a bricklayer and lived out of a Volkswagen van. He lived there from 1962 to 1966, traveling from job to job and seeing the country. He eventually returned to the Northwest, and was living in Seattle when he met Geraldine Ann (“Gerry”) Rock. After two weeks of courtship, he proposed, and only several months later, the couple wed at Wedgwood Presbyterian Church in Seattle on May 18, 1968. They lived in Ballard and Mukilteo before settling in Coupeville in 1975, where Ross almost single-handedly designed and built the family home. Ross continued to work as a bricklayer on Whidbey Island, building specially designed chimneys and other structures. Unlike many men at that time, he stayed home to care for his two young daughters for several years. He produced many paintings, most with science fiction themes, which he exhibited at the Coupeville Arts and Crafts Festival and the Island County Fair. In retirement, he worked

Oak Harbor travels to Marysville-Pilchuck at 7 p.m. Friday, Oct. 25, to play for the divisional football title.

Wednesday, October 23, 2013 • Whidbey News-Times

By JIM WALLER Sports editor

First the Oak Harbor High School football team danced on Marysville Getchell, then the Wildcats did the hokeypokey. With a dense fog providing the backdrop, Oak Harbor celebrated homecoming with a 41-7 win over Marysville Getchell Friday, Oct. 18. And, as is the tradition after a homecoming win, the Oak Harbor players formed a large circle on the Wildcat Memorial Stadium turf and performed the childhood dance. During the first half, the Chargers must have felt like they were put in the middle and shook all about as the ‘Cats raced to a 34-0 lead. With the win, the Wildcats (3-0, 6-1) now head to Marysville-Pilchuck (3-0, 7-0) for the final Wesco 3A North game at 7 p.m. Friday, Oct. 25, with the division title on the line. Fog often made it difficult to view what was happening on the field during Oak Harbor-Getchell game, and the Chargers played like they were in a haze. MG turned the ball over its first four possessions and six times in the game. By halftime Oak Harbor was in total control and was humming the hokeypokey tune. The Wildcats scored on

their first possession when Clay Doughty hit a wide open Dyllan Harris for a 39-yard touchdown. Sheyenne Sams set up the strike with a 23-yard run. Mark Johnston kicked the first of five PATs (one was blocked), and Oak Harbor led 7-0. Doughty finished the game with only three completions on seven attempts, but all three went for scores, two to Harris, for 116 yards. Later in the period, Marysville Getchell reached the Oak Harbor 7-yard line with the help of a 56-yard pass play. A fumble handed the ball back to the Wildcats. Moments later, Sams exploded for a 69-yard score. After Harris intercepted a pass, Oak Harbor scored again. Doughty pitched a 2-yard toss to Rhys Mattila for six points. Once again Sams highlighted the drive, this time with a 34-yard run. Harris intercepted Charger QB Taylor Koellmer once again. It took Oak Harbor one play to score, a 22-yard run by Dejon Devroe. That made it 28-0. Getchell went three-andout, setting up another nice play by Harris. The 6-1, sophomore receiver out-jumped and out-wrestled a Charger defensive back for a pass, broke several tackles and carried a defender the final five yards for the last touch-

Harris, who also intercepted two passes, later added a 75-yard TD pass to help the Wildcats win their homecoming game. down of the first half. At that point, the game took a weird turn. From 3:11 left in the first half until 6:43 left in the game, Marysville Getchell ran 37 plays to Oak Harbor’s seven for a time of possession advantage of

17:55 to 1:52. The Chargers gained 187 yards to the Wildcats’ 19, yet the teams came out even in points with seven. Oak Harbor had two possessions in the span, and the first was a mess. One penalty

wiped out a 27-yard Devroe run and another erased a 38-yard Sams’ touchdown. The possession ended on an interception of a halfback pass. The other possession made up for it. Sams scooted

Seven games into the football season, Oak Harbor is heading down the identical path it traveled in 2012. This year, however, the Wildcats hope at the end of the journey they find a street sign that reads “Victory Lane.” Like last fall, Oak Harbor sports a 6-1 record. Like last fall, the one loss came in a nonleague game to Lake Stevens. Like last fall, Oak Harbor faces Marysville-Pilchuck in the final Wesco 3A North game. And, like last fall, the game will decide the divisional championship. Last year’s game between Oak Harbor and Marysville-

Pilchuck was considered a toss up. This year’s is not. The Tomahawks came from behind in 2012 to win 47-39. That was the beginning of a three-game losing streak that punctuated the Wildcats’ season. Oak Harbor went on to fall to Meadowdale 22-14 in the cross-over game between the second-place teams from the two Wesco 3A divisions. From there, Oak Harbor lost in the first round of the playoffs 36-12 to Peninsula. Oak Harbor’s first chance to avoid the potholes of last fall’s journey begins at 7 p.m. Friday at Marysville’s Quil

Ceda Stadium. It won’t be easy. The Tomahawks are 7-0 and ranked third in the state 3A polls. Oak Harbor is unranked. M-P outscores its opponents on an average 48-20; Oak Harbor, 37-16. The scoring totals, more for and less against, would be more impressive if both teams didn’t take their foot off the gas pedal in blowouts. Marysville-Pilchuck, in particular, eased up in a number of wins. For example, the Tomahawks blasted Everett See title game, A11

85 yards for a touchdown on the kickoff following the only Charger score. After that, Oak Harbor turned the game over to the reserves. The kickoff return capped an impressive night for Sams. The senior rushed for 130 yards on only five carries and scored twice. Julian Faralan added 72 yards on 16 carries, and Devroe, given a light load after returning from missing a game with a concussion, finished with 52 yards on five rushes. Oak Harbor out gained the Chargers 376-293. MG ran for only 67 yards on 30 carries. Koellmer finished 14-for-33 for 226 yards and three interceptions. Oak Harbor coach Jay Turner liked the first half when his team “played pretty well.” He, however, was concerned about the final two quarters: “It was a strange second half; it didn’t have a good feeling. We didn’t have the killer instinct. We will look at some film and correct our mistakes.” He did not critique his team’s dance moves.

Falcons mute Coupeville homecoming celebration By JIM WALLER Sports editor

The thick fog that enveloped Mickey Clark Field like a wet blanket wasn’t the culprit who sucked the excitement out of the Coupeville High School homecoming football game, it was the outcome. Rival South Whidbey dampened the party by defeating the Wolves 57-33 Friday, Oct. 18. The loss also made the road to the playoffs for Coupeville much more steep. The Wolves now must win at King’s at 7 p.m. this Friday, Oct. 25, to stay in the postseason hunt. Coupeville coach Tony Maggio said, “It is not the route I wanted to take, but we are going to give it a shot.”

The first-place Knights are 5-0 in league play, 6-1 overall, and ranked ninth in the state 1A poll. Their only loss was 14-6 in the season opener to Lynden, the state’s secondranked 2A team. Though undefeated in Cascade Conference action, the Knights have shown a few chinks in their armor, Maggio said. They slipped by Sultan 7-3; the Turks are only 3-4 for the year. Two weeks ago, a last-second score enabled King’s to nip a 2-5 Cedarcrest team 27-24. The South WhidbeyCoupeville game was played in front of a large and enthusiastic crowd, and Coupeville thrilled the home folks by scoring first. Jake Tumblin, who finished the game with 233 yards on 18 carries, sprinted 49 yards to open the high-

scoring game. The PAT kick failed. While Tumblin carried much of the offensive load for Coupeville, Falcon quarterback Nick French countered for South Whidbey. The big senior rushed for three scores and threw for two more. A 30-yard run by French and the PAT kick by Cooper Nichols gave the Falcons a 7-6 lead going into the second quarter. Tumblin struck again from long distance, this time from 57 yards out. Joel Walstad kicked the point after and the Wolves led 13-7. From that point South Whidbey dominated, scoring six touchdowns to Coupeville’s one and building a 50-19 lead. First Nichols rushed for a TD, then French threw for

Brett Arnold kept the Wolves close with a 5-yard run, cutting the South Whidbey lead to 21-19. Another touchdown toss and a two-point conversion completion by French upped the score to 29-19 at the break. The Falcons began the second half with three consecutive scores, the first two on short runs by French. The third was a 92-yard knife to the heart by Nichols. Coupeville helped fuel the Falcon surge by throwing two interceptions. In the final period, the Wolves also lost a fumble at the Falcon 2-yard line.

Late in the third quarter, Lathom Kelley finally broke the Coupeville drought with a 54-yard TD run; he also ran for the points after. That made it 50-27. In the fourth quarter, South Whidbey tacked on its final score. Coupeville recovered two onside kicks, converting one into its final touchdown, a 1-yard run by Tumblin. In addition to his two long scoring runs, Tumblin also zipped 61 yards on a fake punt and caught three passes for 24 yards. Defensively, he was just as dangerous, finishing with 16 solo tackles and five assists, according to Maggio, who called the per-

formance “impressive.” Gunnar Langvold completed eight of 18 passes for 118 yards. Wade Schaef caught two for 68 yards. Arnold and Kelley each had nine solo tackles and three assists, and Josh Bayne recorded eight solos and three assists. The Wolves were hurt by the absence of their top lineman, Nick Streubel. The Division I recruit, out with an ankle injury, could have helped shore up the run defense, better protect Coupeville QB Langvold and put pressure on French, Maggio said. Maggio said the Wolves had trouble stopping dives, and when they provided defensive help inside, the DBs were exposed: “Not to take away from Nick French, who had a great game, but our corners had a tough night. South Whidbey hurt us with the deep ball.” Maggio was surprised by the high-scoring game: “I thought something in the 20s would win it.” “Other than the Port Townsend game when we didn’t have anybody (many of the Coupeville’s skill players were hurt), we have been playing great defense,” Maggio said. Maggio said he was pleased with the Wolves’ offense, then added that wasn’t the only positive aspect of the game. “The support of the community was amazing,” he said. “The place was packed; the whole town of Coupeville was there.” Sunday evening Maggio said, “I am over it (the South Whidbey loss). Now we have to get King’s.” An upset win would surely get the party restarted.

title game CONTINUED FROM A9 63-27 last Friday. They led 63-0 at halftime and their leading rusher, Austin Joyner, carried the ball only three times in the game. Those three carries included scores of 49 and 48 yards. Be assured, he will have far more than three totes in the Oak Harbor game. The 5-10, 190-pound runner is one of the state’s, if not the nation’s, best juniors. Last year against Oak Harbor, he rushed for 260 yards on 16 carries, five of which covered at least 25 yards. He again leads the Western Conference in rushing with 985 yards on 62 carries. And, yes, that pencils out to 15.9 yards per carry. The fact that he averages less than 10 carries a game shows the ease of the Tomahawks’ wins this year. Oak Harbor coach Jay Turner said, “Joyner is a special player. No one has slowed him down all year.” Unfortunately for Oak Harbor, M-P is more than a one-man team. The Tommies are a run-first team but can throw when needed. QB Jake Luton, a firstteam all-league player last fall, has completed 42 of 82 passes in the first six games this year

Page A11

for 735 yards. Three other M-P backs, Killian Page, JJ Valencia and Deion Stell have each rushed for over 300 yards and together average nine yards a carry. Oak Harbor will counter with its threeheaded running attack of Sheyenne Sams, Julian Faralan and Dejon Devroe. The trio ranks 2-4 behind Joyner in the Wesco North rushing totals even though Sams and Devroe each missed a game. Sams leads the Wildcats with 821 yards (80 carries, 10.3 average), followed by Faralan at 686 (115, 5.97) and Devroe at 680 (76, 8.95). Clay Doughty has completed 25 of 56 passes for 441 yards. Ironically, Oak Harbor coach Turner is a graduate of Marysville-Pilchuck. “That was so long ago,” Turner said, “the game isn’t much different than any other. The first few were special, but not so much anymore.” He noted that going in as an underdog this year should make it less stressful for his team: “We can play a relaxed, fun football game.” And, possibly, change the course the Wildcats followed last season.

and the council is the legislative,” he said. “The trouble comes when we cross the boundaries.”

CONTINUED FROM A1 the recent discussion over beer gardens in city parks; he insisted in excluding Fort Nugent Park from the parks where they will be allowed under strict circumstances. Paggao said he would never run a negative campaign and that approach extends to the council. “I already have the proven leadership on the council,” he said, pointing out that his fellow council members named him as mayor pro tem. Paggao is a bit of a wildcard on the council; during a former administration, he was often the swing vote. In recent years, he’s voted on both sides of controversial issues that divided Mayor Scott Dudley and the council. He voted against the conversion of Pioneer Way to a one-way road, which many see as the original source of friction between Dudley and other leaders. “I listened to businesses that felt there would be adverse effects,” Paggao said. Paggao wouldn’t comment on what he thought about Dudley campaigning for Piccone, except to say he won’t engage in negative campaigning. On the question about the fighting between the council and mayor, he pointed to the council. “The mayor is the executive branch

POT CONTINUED FROM A1 keep new marijuana companies on hold until county staff are able to review state guide-

Piccone was the most outspoken candidate during the voters forums and is critical of past decisions made by city leaders. He said he’s concerned about “big government” and petty politics. He said Paggao was on the council when what he thinks were mistakes and bad decisions were made. “We’ve seen a 27 percent increase in utility rates over the last 20 years,” he said, adding that major increases are excepted in the future. Piccone said he first became concerned about city government after Native American remains were unearthed during the Pioneer Way project; the mistake has cost the city millions. While he has the mayor’s support, he said he won’t be a “yes man” for Dudley if elected. He said he first met Dudley when the former councilman was running for mayor. He said he raked Dudley over the coals about the Pioneer Way project and their encounter “did not end well.” He said his opinion of the mayor changed after Dudley stood up for gun rights. He said the “childishness” between the mayor and council gets in the way of progress. While he said the bickering “goes both ways,” he thinks the council needs to let the mayor do his job.

“The council isn’t listening to the people,” he said. “They need to put personal issues and agendas aside.” Piccone said he would like to focus on city finances and ensure taxes and fees are as low as possible. “I served my country,” he said, “and now I’m trying to do something for my community.” NEITHER Paggao and Piccone disagree on the need for a planned sewage treatment plant, but they differ on the siting and costs. Paggao points out that the city went to lengths to involve the public in the process, which started three years ago. There were a series of public workshops and charrettes. The community was involved in the process as the sites were slowly narrowed down. Paggao said he supports building the plant in the vicinity of Windjammer Park, which likely means a commercial property on Pioneer Way. He said it was the least expensive option. Piccone said the problem with the process was the limited options. He’s against the idea of building it adjacent to the park or on commercial property. He said citizens he’s spoken too are overwhelmingly against the current plan. He suggests the best option may be to build the plant on Navy property. “Let’s step back,” he said. “Take a deep breath. See what the Navy has to say.”

SURVIVOR CONTINUED FROM A1 “It was my healing juice, my Jesus juice,” Martin said. Martin underwent 24 weeks of chemotherapy. During that time, she made friends with the other women who were there. They became a sisterhood, enjoying their triumphs and supporting each other through their struggles. Martin said she enjoyed seeing them, and they still stay in touch. After the chemotherapy ended, she said she took a short break before starting eight weeks of radiation treatments. The reality of her condition set in when her hair started falling out. She would wash her hair and handfuls would come out in the shower. She didn’t want to deal with the gradual loss of her hair, so her children Lindsay and Logan Williams helped. They set-up a chair in the bathtub, and Logan cut off his mother’s hair. When he finished, Lindsay shaved her mother’s head. Martin moved to Whidbey

Island in 2001 and joined the Church of the Nazarene that same year. She even met her husband, Todd Martin, in Bible study. They’ve been married for nine and a half years. “This is where I landed, and this is where I stayed,” Martin said. “This is my home.” Martin has five children, three from her marriage to Todd. All of their children live on Whidbey Island, as well as their six grandchildren, ranging from ages 2 to 12. Some of her grandchildren showed their support by walking with her at Relay for Life. Her granddaughter, Jennifer Martin, organized a fundraiser by selling baked goods at her parent’s store when she was 7 years old. Martin’s husband is her biggest supporter, and he’s stood by her through thick and thin, she said. He drove her to all the radiation appointments in Bellingham. Martin said she knows that trials happen to everyone in life. “I don’t ask, ‘Why me?’”

Martin said. “’I ask, ‘Why not me?’” Breast cancer doesn’t run in her family, but her sister was diagnosed late with nonHodgkin lymphoma in 2001. Just three months later, she died at age 42, Martin said. Because of Martin’s journey, she reaches out to others in the community and through Facebook. “If I couldn’t help someone else it was all for nothing,” Martin said. “This isn’t about me.” Martin said she couldn’t have gotten through it without the support of her family, friends, coworkers and church. “It’s not a path we were meant to walk alone,” Martin said. “It’s a lonely place to be if you don’t have someone to help you through it.” For many people, letting others help them is the hardest part. Once she was diagnosed, the congregation at her church put up a calendar and scheduled members to drive her to all of her appointments. Her pastor even drove her. People also volunteered to bring meals to her home. “Everyone lined up to drive me,” Martin said. “I

don’t think I had to cook the entire time.” The Ladies Ministry Group organized a pink party and brought gifts so she had a present to open every time she went to her chemotherapy treatments on Wednesdays. Martin said she likes to wear these items in October. They include her pink ribbon earrings and pink watch that were given to her. Jacque and Chuck Fye, a couple at her church, gave Martin a pink ribbon scarf because their daughter had lost her own fight with breast cancer. Martin finished her final set of preventive treatments in December, and now her life is getting back on track. Her hair has grown back, but it didn’t come back black and straight like it once was. Now it’s grey and curly. Martin said that’s common with a lot of patients who come off chemo. “The most amazing part of it all is to realize you’re on this journey. Look beyond the storm, and you can find the good.”

Mother a joy, inspiration to family Kate Rosenthal turned 100 in May, 42 years after breast cancer diagnosis By RON NEWBERRY

K Staff reporter

ate Rosenthal greets her guests with an offering. “Do you want one of these? They’re good,” she says, grinning as she reaches into a small glass bowl of peanut M&M’s. “I keep eating them and I’m 100-years-old.” Rosenthal visited the dish often during a recent afternoon at her Oak Harbor home near West Beach. She relaxed on a love seat, warmly sharing chocolates, jokes and a quick wit while also revealing a few secrets to her longevity despite a mid-life scare. Forty-two years ago, she was diagnosed with breast cancer. “I’m still here,” said Rosenthal, who had a mastectomy at the age of 58, then underwent another one when the cancer came back 10 years later. She was cancer free until this past year, received radiation treatment for the first time and now has a relatively clean bill of health considering her age. “She’s amazing,” her daughter Katy Reissner said. “She’s never had chemotherapy. “She’s unbelievable.” Rosenthal enjoys a good laugh, good company, Friday night dice games of Farkle and even a cold beer from time to time. “I just get along with everybody,” she said. “I do. Even my daughters. I get along with them.” It’s Rosenthal’s positive outlook on life that has proven to be both contagious and inspiring. Her daughters Rita Lambert and Reissner, with whom she lives, are quick to smile about her stories and a short-term memory that isn’t quite what it once was. Even Rosenthal will laugh at her own memory slights. Mostly, she just beams when she sees others smiling. She likes seeing others happy. “It’s OK,” Lambert said to her mom. “You’re 100. You can do anything you want.” Reissner couldn’t be more inspired by her mother. She had her own bout with breast cancer four years ago and chose the same path as her mother, not hesitat-

Kate Rosenthal, left, relaxes on a sofa with her daughter, Katy Reissner, at their Oak Harbor home. Both have battled breast cancer.

Rosenthal participated in the 2013 Relay for Life event at North Whidbey Middle School last May less than a week after turning 100. ing to have a mastectomy. “There was no waiting,” she said. Their family is close, leaning on each other and their faith. Reissner said she believes her mom’s positive outlook as far back as she can remember has played heavily in her longevity. Breast cancer is the second most common cancer for women in the United States and the second leading cause of cancer death in women behind lung cancer, according to the American Cancer Society.

Rosenthal was born May 25, 1913, in Fergus Falls, Minn. “That’s where the tough ones come from,” Reissner joked. She lived in the family’s 100-yearold home in St. Paul until moving to Oak Harbor five years ago to be with her daughters. She has spent most of her life eating home-cooked meals and subscribes to the philosophy of having “everything in moderation.” Chocolate has been a guilty pleasure. And there was a long period when she’d enjoy a beer most nights,

but not so much anymore. “I’m not a big coffee drinker. I like booze better,” Rosenthal joked. Such comments cause their daughters to shake their heads and smile. They know their mom is extraordinary. The second youngest of 12 in her family, Rosenthal is the only one still living. She wore a pink pin brooch on a pink sweatshirt that read, “This is what the most loved grandmother looks like.” She’s been a 42-year survivor

since breast cancer first crept into her life. Cancer came back a year ago when it was detected in her chest wall and in the summer when a spot was found in her back. But a change in medication and radiation treatment led to encouraging results after further tests. It was only in recent years that Rosenthal took any medication at all. Just vitamins. “Oh, I’m good,” Rosenthal said. “I’m just cockeyed old. But here I am.”

breast Scan MRI to HELP Save Lives Year-long fundraiser for new system hits goal

By SARA HANSEN

W Staff Reporter

ith a community coming together, there’s nothing it can’t accomplish. At the beginning of the year, the Whidbey General Hospital Foundation’s board of directors set a fundraising goal of $320,000: $230,000 for a Breast MRI Scan System and $90,000 for a biopsy machine for the hospital. That goal became a reality last week. “People in this community step up

for this hospital because it’s their hospital,” said Laura Blankenship, Whidbey General Hospital Foundation executive director. Many businesses and organizations helped, and the foundation received donations from 50 cents to thousands of dollars. Blankenship said there was a mother and son who donated the smallest amount because it was all they had to give. “You just don’t know how breast cancer has affected all these people and touched their lives,” Blankenship said. The new scan system and biopsy equipment will complement the $1

million Magnetic Resonance Imaging (MRI) equipment the hospital already has. The hospital board of commissioners approved the purchase of the new equipment Oct. 14. “This can be one of the best programs in the state, and even beyond that,” said Hank Hanigan, Whidbey General Hospital’s chief operating officer. Hanigan said the staff is already being trained, so when the equipment arrives in about 60 days, they will be ready to go. Dr. Nancy Neubauer is already Photo provided

familiar with the equipment, and Dr. Robert Hawkins is newly trained. “Hospitals this size, a rural hospital like us, just don’t do things like this,” Hanigan said. “We can be a model.” Dr. Bruce A. Porter and Hawkins have been instrumental in this process, Hanigan said. Dr. Porter has more than 21 years of experience in this field, and has been advising the hospital through this process. This technology was originally only available in larger hospitals, but now it is making its way out to community facilities. This new system is not for the general population, Porter said. It is not meant to replace mammograms or the clinical exams most all women receive. It is for certain groups, such as high risk patients who have a family history of breast cancer, or for those who have a known breast cancer. Women ages 40 or older should have mammograms every one or two years. Those who are younger, and are at risk for breast cancer should ask their healthcare professional if they should start having mammograms early, according to the National Breast Cancer

Foundation. If a patient needs additional testing, this is where the Breast MRI Scan System comes into play. Porter said when a patient is about to be scanned, the dedicated breast coil fits around them and allows technicians to take a 3D image. While in the scanner the patient is injected with contrast, also known as gadolinium. This makes any abnormalities more visible for physicians to spot. The cancer gets bright right away and then dissipates quickly, while other tissues slowly brighten over time. The 3D image taken allows them to view all angles, making it so tumors can no longer hide, Porter said. If anything is detected that the doctor thinks should be investigated more, patients can have a biopsy immediately without having to make another appointment, Hanigan said. The guided biopsy can be used around the MRI equipment, Porter said. The instrument used will target the area of concern, leave a tiny metal marker so they can find that particular spot later. After the procedure is over, the patient will only have a nick on their skin. It is much less intrusive than a surgical biopsy, Porter said.

“We can target something the size of a caper, or a small pea,” Porter said. One of the best features of the new technology is its very high negative predictive value, meaning the results are very reliable if they are normal, so the at-risk patient can have peace of mind until the next exam, Porter said. For some of these women, they want to be able to breast feed their babies when they have them, or just be put at ease and not be afraid that something might have been missed. “The hospital is ahead of the curve on this technology instead

of falling behind,” Porter said. Blankenship said there were other benefits to having this on the island. For residents, their support system is here, whether it’s their family or friends, they have that close to home. By providing this service, they can stay here without having to drive for hours, or take a ferry. When it’s potentially scary news, no one wants to wait around and find out the results, she said. “We can’t be everything, but we can do a lot of things well, and there are just some things we can do better,” Blankenship said.

Seventeen teams, consisting of 53 participants, have already signed up and help raise more than $1,100 for the island’s American Cancer Society fundraising event, which will take get underway the evening of May 30 at North Whidbey Middle School. Leandra Reuble, chairperson of the event, said she

is seeking more organizing committee members. There are about 25 members, a number she’d like to raise to 40. “The more help we have, the more internal support there is for the entire event,” she said. Reuble, an English and leadership teacher at Midway High School, said those interested in becoming a committee member may reach her at 360-678-0823 or lereuble@ ohsd.net Those who want to participate in the relay may sign up at the website at www. relayforlife.org by typing “Oak Harbor” into the event search. The Whidbey Island event was well attended this year with 75 teams raising $158,499 to help fight cancer and increase awareness of the disease. Reuble said that although the fundraising goals fell short, participation at the Whidbey Island event was sizable compared to locations in Whatcom and Skagit and counties and some events in Snohomish County. She said 920 people registed online in 2013 and estimated a couple thousand people participated. Reuble wanted to emphasize that the Relay for Life of Whidbey Island is an islandwide event. She said the first rally for the event will be Nov. 13 at the Oak Harbor Elks Lodge.
