A 17-year-old Oak Harbor girl is dead, her twin sister is in serious condition at Harborview Medical Center and Hospital in Seattle and another young woman is in the hospital following an accident near Anacortes Thursday, according to the Washington State Patrol. Janeah Goheen died at the scene of the accident; her sister, Janesah Goheen, is in the intensive care unit, according to Kellie Tormey, communication coordinator for the Oak Harbor School District. “Everybody here is deeply saddened,” Tormey said. “It’s really a shocking loss to this community.” Alysha Pickler, 18, of Oak Harbor, was also injured in the accident and transported to Island Hospital in Anacortes for treatment. Oak Harbor resident Ira Blackstock, 53, was arrested and booked into Skagit County Jail on suspicion of vehicular homicide and two counts of vehicular assault, according to the Washington See TEEN KILLED in crash, A4

Will City Council election serve as a referendum on mayor? By JESSIE STENSLAND Staff reporter

Political observers in Oak Harbor see the upcoming election as a poll of sorts on public opinion of ongoing friction between Mayor Scott Dudley and the City Council. Cause of the division, however, depends on whom you ask. Some see it as a partisan divide, with echoes of the larger national struggle over the heart of the Republican party.

Others said they see a conflict between a reformer and the “good old boys” network. Some said they think it’s a personality conflict between oversized personalities. Dudley said it spawns from camaraderie between the council and city staff. “We have a council that seems to think they work for the staff,” he said. “I work for the citizens of Oak Harbor and sometimes that means I have to make hard decisions.”

Although they all resist such categorization, the eight candidates in the council election are viewed as being either in the mayor’s “camp” or on the side of the council. Dudley helped perpetuate this perception by campaigning door-to-door for the candidates he supports: Lucas Yonkman, Sandi Peterson, Mike Piccone and Councilman Jim Campbell. The other candidates — Councilman Bob Severns, See election, A17

Volunteers with the group promoting the proposed Whidbey General Hospital bond are making a final push to get people to vote. Members of the Friends of Whidbey General Hospital are getting on the phones and calling voters to encourage them to cast their ballots. Whidbey General Hospital leaders are asking voters to approve a $50 million bond funding construction of a new wing at the hospital’s Coupeville campus. The 31,000-square-foot wing would provide single-patient rooms for medical/surgical care, observation of patients, the birth center and intensive care unit. The construction would also include space for future use. Joe Mosolino, head of the Friends group, said volunteers were busy last weekend calling 1,500 voters. They encouraged them to vote, pay close attention to the ballot and visit the hospital’s website, www.whidbeygen.org, for more information about the measure. A 60-percent supermajority must vote in

favor of the bond for it to pass. If approved, property owners would pay 32.2 cents per $1,000 assessed property value, which comes to about $81 for the owner of a $250,000 home. Hospital officials proposed the $50 million bond two years ago. At that time, 55.49 percent of the voters voted to approve the bond, but it didn’t reach the 60 percent supermajority. This time, hospital officials are running a bond proposal with identical figures. Hospital spokeswoman Trish Rose said in an email the estimate for the project was originally determined by commercial construction estimator Robinson and Co., and it was recently verified by Mahlum Architects. In addition to the wing with single-patient rooms, plans call for transforming the current patient space into clinic rooms and installing a parking lot. Ballots must be postmarked by Nov. 5 or placed into a dropbox located at Oak Harbor City Hall on Barrington Drive or the Island County Elections Office, located on North Main Street in Coupeville.

Incumbent facing critic of school administration By RON NEWBERRY Staff reporter

Corey Johnson said he believes he represents a continuity important to the Oak Harbor School District at this juncture. Bill Burnett sees himself as offering an infusion of much-needed new blood. Both are running for Oak Harbor’s only contested school board seat. Johnson is seeking a third term on the school board. Burnett isn’t new at this game, having run for the school board several times before. He jokes that he’s lost count of how many times, landing on five as his best guess. Johnson, 50, said he’s seeking reelection because his heart is in the school system, and he wants to see through the changing of the guard that occurred with Lance Gibbon’s hiring as superintendent. Gibbon succeeded longtime schools chief Rick Schulte in July. “It’s important to have continuity,” Johnson said. “I think we’re a well-rounded board. “For me, I felt like it’s a good transition and it allows us to ensure that we get our new superintendent going off in the right direction and he’s the right guy and everything’s going smoothly and that’s good for Oak Harbor and that’s good for the school district. “And if it’s not, I just think it’s good to have level heads in there or people with experience to be able to make those judgments. There’s nothing that takes the place of experience.” Johnson, who owns his own construction company, is a 1982 graduate of Oak Harbor High School. He has had three children go through the system. He first got involved with the school board a decade ago as part of a committee that examined whether the school district should build a new stadium or renovate existing aging facilities. He was initially critical of the idea but later recommended new construction after researching both sides. That process later led him to run for the school board. Eight years later, he said his passion remains strong to continue to improve his

home school system and make the educational experience positive for kids. That included his support of the 2013 levy that passed and has led to restoring and protecting programs he felt were important. “That was a big tax increase, I get that,” said Johnson, who’s lived in Oak Harbor for 49 years. “I whole-heartedly supported it because it was the right thing to do for Oak Harbor, for our kids and our community. I don’t think people understand about having good schools and good programs in a community that says we support our schools. It brings people here. It brings jobs here. “It brings all of those things.” The levy also helped restore and preserve some career tech education programs that are dear to Johnson, who began working in construction shortly after high school and didn’t attend a four-year college. “Some of those programs we offer in CTE, one of those classes might keep a kid in school,” he said. Burnett said he wants to join the school board to breath new life into it. More significantly, he said he would bring more counter arguments and careful examination before approving expenditures and making other critical decisions. A retired Navy officer, Burnett has called Oak Harbor home for 30 years. His son graduated from Oak Harbor High School. A product of private schools in New Jersey, Burnett holds undergraduate and graduate college degrees and spent 15 years as a curriculum designer and developer of classroom and webbased training courseware for the military. Burnett, 54, said he wants to add more accountability to the board, as well as a differing view and a more critical eye on how money is used. Burnett said he doesn’t hear enough rationale arguments for many financial decisions made, the most recent levy in February among them. Burnett opposed that levy, approved by voters. “I wish there would be one person on there when they run these levies and bonds that would actually give people the facts that I think are

relevant to the revenues,” Burnett said. Burnett said some of the school district’s arguments in the levy campaign didn’t add up, saying that funding from local and federal sources is “fungible” with districts having more discretion on what these monies can be used for that what the public is led to believe. Burnett said he knows better when he hears that there is no money for textbooks or “doom and gloom” reports about how much federal Impact Aid the district will receive. That’s why, he said, it’s important for him to be on the school board to stop what he calls “one-sided propaganda” come levy and bond time. “You’ve got all five of these people voting to put a doubling of the property taxes on there, and all five of them think that that’s the thing to do?” Burnett said. “Well, are there any arguments at all against it? I mean, you should have at least one person on there who can bring out the rational and reasonable arguments as to why maybe we don’t need to do that or maybe we shouldn’t do that, or maybe we should at least look at how we are spending our local discretionary spending that we are already getting. Then once the people know those facts, if they still vote for it, OK. But at least they then know that there’s another side to this. Because there are always two sides to the story.” Burnett is known as outspoken and critical. He filed a lawsuit against Island County in July, which has since stalled, in hopes of reinstating Island County Commissioner Kelly Emerson as commission chairwoman after she was stripped of that title. Burnett doesn’t hold back in some of his word choices in his criticisms of elected officials. He says his tactics

are only to call attention to important issues. “Of course, it’s to make a point,” he said. “When you’re on a board working with other people, you can’t be telling them they’re illiterate, stupid idiots to their face every meeting,” he said, breaking into a smile. “That’s not going to go over well. It’s different when you’re a member of the public throwing darts at these people because they signed up to have darts thrown at them.” Burnett said his interest in schools and education is genuine, and that he cares about his community. He said he wants the school district to provide more factual information about revenues and expenditures to the public concerning levies and bonds “as opposed to the very one-sided propaganda that’s mostly given to the people.” He said he’s mystified why the school district doesn’t televise school board meetings when it has its own student-run television station, Wildcat TV. Burnett wants to help bring about these changes and, opposed to what some might think, is quite capable of being a good team player. “I might tick them off a little bit because I’m not going to go along with the B.S.,” Burnett said. “But let’s face it. Obviously, everybody wants to have all the kids to have a positive experience. There’s nobody on the school board who doesn’t want that. There’s always that common interest. It’s just a matter as with everything else, how do you best get there at times?

Kids with a cause

“I’m glad all my friends have helped,” Brooke said. Brooke said she knew some of the club members before it started, but became close friends with everyone involved. “It brought us closer together.” Coral said they are all Brooke’s best friends now. All the students joined the club because they wanted to support their friend Brooke and help her mom, but some also had their own experiences of dealing with breast cancer in their families. Lillyann said her grandmother had breast cancer, so she wanted to help. Daniel knew people in his family who dealt with cancer, and that’s what drew him to the club, “I had a friend who had cancer and I knew it was important to help,” Lily said. Tamra Sipes, Nicole’s mother, saw her daughter working on a poster at home. When she asked her what the poster was for, Nicole explained it was for the Breast Cancer Club. Sipes said she asked if the school organized the club, and Nicole said her friends started it at recess explained the club’s goal. The level of organization surprised Sipes as her daughter

CONTINUED FROM A1 Flyers Restaurant and Brewery, Hallmark and New Image Hair Salon. When the club members came into the room to tally their efforts, they were astounded. “Oh my goodness, look how much money there is!” said club member Knight Arndt. Brooke Ausman and Coral Caveness started the club, and approached Coupeville Elementary School Counselor Dana Stone with the idea in early October. They wanted to help Brooke’s mom, who has stage four breast cancer. The fundraiser would help pay for her treatments. Donations couldn’t be collected at school, so they came up with different options to make the club work. “I thought, ‘wow,’” Stone said, “’what a neat thing for the kids to do, and how they’re thinking beyond themselves.’” By mid-November, Brooke said the group placed collection jars at businesses with the club’s mission written on them. They also made

posters at school to let people know where they could find the jars. What impressed Stone most was how committed the students were to the club. Even though their first ideas didn’t work out, they were committed to make it happen. “The same seven kids stuck with it the entire time,” Stone said. “It’s been fun to see their enthusiasm an commitment.” Brooke and Coral are the presidents of the club, and Lily Zustiak is the vice president. Other members include Nicole Bishop-Sipes, Daniel Olson, Lillyann Tornensis and Knight Arndt. They held meetings during recess to plan for fundraising efforts. “It’s what we wanted to do for a long time and we succeeded,” Coral said. When they set up the jars, they all had $1.50 in them to start, Coral said. Normally when you see jars around town, they only have about $10 in them. When the Breast Cancer Club jars came back full, she was excited.

explained they had officers and club members who preformed certain duties. “My mom is proud that a lot of kids are doing this,” Nicole said. Stone said she just helped facilitate the children’s idea, and that all the work came from the kids. “The school has been fabulous,” Sipes said. “They’ve helped encouraged them throughout this experience.” After seeing what they can accomplish, the fifth-graders said they want to start helping out a charity. As the students tallied their collections, they all went up to Brooke and hugged her. “That’s awesome, Brooke,” Knight said. “Your mom is going to be so proud of you.” Knight said parents keep coming up to her and giving her a dollar here and there to help with the fundraiser. “We want to thank all the people who donated,” Coral said. “We never thought this could happen.

Engineer to eye Greenbank Farm sewer issues Septic system may need to be redesigned to adapt to changing uses By NATHAN WHALEN Staff reporter

Port of Coupeville leaders say they’re concerned the septic system at Greenbank Farm may need to be redesigned. The Washington State Department of Health attached a string of conditions to a permit for the farm’s large, onsite sewer system, prompting the Port of Coupeville to hire an engineer to come up with modifications to ensure it functions without being a threat to public health or the environment. The system was originally installed by the farm’s previous owner, Chateau St. Michelle, with the hopes of transforming the farm into a public event facility, said Port of Coupeville Executive Director Jim Patton. The system was designed for a peak capacity of 5,000 gallons of waste per day. Activities at the farm have changed over the years, however, and the system isn’t capable of handling the different kinds of waste, including oil and grease that come from a restaurant and a pie production facility, officials say. “The system was not built to digest all of those things,” Patton said.

Over the past four years, staff has been “Band-Aiding” solutions and was reporting the situation to the state Department of Health. For example, Patton said, grease traps were installed at the restaurant and kitchen, and staff faithfully cleaned those traps. Nonetheless, grease found its way into the septic system. Patton reported the situation to the state Department of Health and worked to find a solution. The Health Department officials have been improving their efforts in monitoring such large onsite sewer systems Island County has 52 such systems. “The concern is, they aren’t being properly maintained,” said Denise Lahmann, LOSS program manager for the state Health Department. Until three years ago, the Department of Health didn’t have the staff to perform such work. Now staff is looking at permits in greater detail. She said there are about 600 such sewer systems throughout the state. “We believe we need to hold system holders and operators accountable,” Lahmann said.

If problems arise with a system, she said, the Health Department will work with the owner to come up with logical, financially-feasible solutions. In the case of Greenbank Farm, she said the first thing is to learn more about its septic system. The Health Department asked for water quality monitoring data from the Greenbank Farm. There’s concern that the large amount of fats and oils will coat pipes and fill the pores that lead into the soil. It’s likely additional treatment will be needed for the high-strength waste that is going on the farm’s sewer system, Lahmann said. Lahmann said she is pleased with the level of cooperation coming from the port. To meet conditions of the state permit, port staff must clean the pump, siphon chamber, drain and inspection ports. They must also develop a cleaning plan. The port must submit documentation to the health department by the end of the year. The Port of Coupeville must hire a licensed engineer by April 2014. That engineer will evaluate the system and design any modifications to ensure the farm’s system pro-

tects public health and the environment. Approved modifications must be completed by April 2015 and installed within a year. Patton said he is confident the port has enough money

to hire the engineer and complete the design work. To change the septic system, Patton said the port will need to seek grant funding. The Port of Coupeville is seeking $70,000 from the Rural County Economic

Development Fund. Money for that fund comes from a .09 percent sales tax rebate from the state. Patton said applications for the fund opens in April 2014. “We will be working on a request,” Patton said.

sound off No room for elitism in state government Guest column

By Rep. Dave Hayes A few weeks ago, a regional newspaper reported that the Washington State Patrol and some other law enforcement agencies will not issue tickets for moving violations to Washington legislators during a legislative session. The State Patrol cites a provision in Washington’s constitution, enacted in 1889, which reads: “Members of the Legislature shall be privileged from arrest in all cases except treason, felony and breach of the peace; they shall not be subject to any civil process during the session of the Legislature, nor for 15 days next before the commencement of each session.” The law was written when legislators traveled for days across the state to reach the capitol, sometimes on horseback, and it was intended to prevent them from being obstructed from their participation in the Legislature. Times have changed quite a bit in 124 years. While this exemption may have been valid a century ago, today it projects an image of elitism about our state Legislature – even though I’m convinced no one in the Legislature would take advantage of it today. In fact, some legislators stopped for speeding have asked the officer to write them a ticket, only to be rejected. As a state legislator and patrol sergeant with the Snohomish County Sheriff’s Department, I believe no one should be above the law, especially those who write the laws. That is why I am proposing legislation. During the pre-filing period in December, I plan to introduce a bill that would eliminate traffic ticket exemptions for state legislators. The measure I have drafted would clarify that the issuance of a traffic citation to a legislator is not a “civil process” under the state constitution. This is important because the interpretation of “civil process” is confusing and is why the State Patrol won’t write tickets to legislators, while other law enforcement agencies, such as the Olympia Police Department, do. The bill I am proposing would clarify that state legislators who violate traffic laws may receive a ticket, regardless of whether or not the Legislature is in session. Court appearances, or other hearings related to disposition of a traffic citation received by a state legislator See HAYES, A7

Community

Touched by thought put into gift, tribute Editor, I am incredibly humbled and honored by the recent gift and tribute I received from many of you throughout the community, the naming of a hybrid rhododendron. Not only is it our official state flower, but a flower with a very unique history on Whidbey Island, home to some of the most beautiful rhondodendrons. Of all the tributes, this truly was the “Best of Whidbey,” I am overwhelmed by your generosity and touched by your gesture and you could not have found a more meaningful gift. Words are not adaquate thanks for how truly blessed I feel. To Coupeville Mayor Nancy Conard and Island County Commissioner Helen Price Johnson, thank you for your friendship and organizing a wonderful reunion. To Frank Fujioka and Meerkerk Gardens, the rhododendron you selected is beautiful and the thought you put into choosing it means a lot to me and my family.

It was a privilege serving you in Olympia, however it is a greater honor to call many of you friends. Mary Margaret Haugen Camano Island

Journalism

WNT murder coverage not worthy of award Editor, I find it beyond reprehensible that Jessie Stensland could win an award for her “Did the ‘voices’ drive hime to kill?” story. Just who are these judges who deem her words “gift for readers?” Are you kidding me? Shall we ask the friends and family of the victims if her repeated insensitive retelling of the story were gifts to them? I know the news has to be reported. I don’t expect all stories and reporting to be “pretty.” Too often they are not. Yet, do we as readers, need to be told the harsh and unforgiving circumstances of a crime over and over again? Did the family and friends of the perpetrator need to be subjected to the horrors of the crime in nearly every issue of the paper for weeks? Can Ms. Stensland feel good about winning an award for this even after

she was asked by friends of the family to consider the family in her reporting of this story? That anyone can ignore the shattered hearts of those hurt, especially in our small community, for what, journalistic freedom? The hope of an award? It makes me sad and sickened. Luanne Raavel Coupeville

Noise indeed a health concern for 65-plus Editor, I don’t think it’s really that difficult to understand why many people who live in Coupeville hate the nasty loud plane noise during the day and especially at midnight. To make matters worse, a new FAA report reveals people older than 65 subjected to loud plane noise have more incidents of hearing problems, heart rhythm disturbances, cerebrovascular events and more. This is definitely a threat to the health and well being of many people in Coupeville and Ken Pickard should be thanked for all his efforts to restore peace and quiet to Coupeville.

Question

of the week:

“There needs to be orchestrated community events, not necessarily carnivals, that are stimulating”

www.WhiDBEYNEWSTIMES.com

What types of events would you like to see local community organizations host?

“Maybe something for people who don’t make the school basketball team, who could play in a 12 and older league.” Keygen Kesgard, Rachel Conrad, Oak Harbor Oak Harbor

“More stuff for kids. It’s great to get the community involved with art and music for kids.”

are still considered “civil process” and could not be scheduled during a legislative session. This part of the law could not be changed without a constitutional amendment, which requires a two-thirds majority of the Legislature and a simple majority of Washington’s voters. This also remains a legitimate provision in the state constitution, even in modern times, because it was designed to prevent political gamesmanship, such as compelling a court hearing against a legislator whose absence at just the right time would provide an advantage to one side during a vote. It’s also important to note that legislators who are summoned to court cannot escape those hearings. It’s just that the hearings cannot be scheduled during a legislative session. You often hear state legislators talk about

“accountability” – holding state agencies accountable with your tax dollars, holding educators accountable for providing children with a quality education, etc. Shouldn’t accountability begin with those we elect to office? When our laws are misinterpreted to grant privileges to state legislators afforded to no one else, it creates a greater mistrust between citizens and their government. There’s no room for elitism in Washington state government. We are a citizen Legislature and should not be beyond the reach of laws we create for other citizens. Our greatest privilege as elected members of the Legislature should be to serve the public, not ourselves. It’s time to update this law. n Dave Hayes represents Position No. 2 in the 10th Legislative District.

Will COER accept liability if a Growler crashes?

JOIN US! www.TheSeattleMajestics.com UPCOMING TRAINING CAMPS (NO EXPERIENCE NECESSARY!) NOV. 16TH & DEC. 7TH, 11am-2pm, at FRENCH FIELD in KENT

Editor, Recent behaviors by Citizens of the Ebey’s Reserve (COER) make me want to inquire of COER in the public square. Here goes my attempt at scoping questions for COER: n If COER claims to be “pro-Navy,” then how can Ken Pickard possibly be your president and spokesperson — the same Ken Pickard who lobbies with hateful words like “act in accordance with what you know to be true instead of like worried, timid leaders, afraid of the military, afraid of losing the federal pork it delivers here on paydays” as documented in this newspaper that COER then attempted to retaliate for publicizing? n Is COER open to mitigation strategies short of closing OLF Coupeville? If so, what strategies, e.g. improved noise disclosures, increased public disclosure, soundproofing and eminent domain, as the U.S. Navy has on public record stated OLF Coupeville is necessary to safely operate EA-18Gs and EA-6Bs? n Will COER file for injunctive relief putting their interests ahead of the national interest of having VAQ air crew safely complete their final field carrier landing practice at OLF Coupeville after interim practices are carried out at Whidbey Island Naval Air Station as is so this autumn? If so, does COER accept liability for any EA-18G or EA-6B crash on an aircraft carrier?

Furthermore, this dues-paying Oak Harbor Navy Leaguer will continue to lobby for OLF Coupeville plus mitigation as I did at the Oct. 14 Island County Commissioners meeting. I will do so also at EA-18G EIS scoping meetings Dec. 3 at Coupeville High School, Dec. 4 at Oak Harbor High and Dec. 5 at Anacortes Middle School – all from 4 p.m. to 8 p.m. I encourage COER to do the same — civilly.

Representation

End ‘worshipping’ of this country’s political parties Editor, I need to share my observations of a long lifetime of U.S. citizenship regarding the malfunction of our current government that sent military people all over the world to fight and die in an attempt to justify and replicate our way of democratic governing. The United States of America was founded with a Constitution that said we would exist as a government of, by and for the people. Who crawled out of the swamplands and gave self-serving congressmen and women in Washington the right to change it into a government of, by and for the sociopathic politicians? Get religion out of government. Stop the shameful worshipping of your political parties and get back to the business you were elected to do, represent the American peoples’ rights as citizens.

Ruth L. Edward

Ruth Loraine Edward, 88, passed away peacefully in Bellingham, Wash. on Oct. 22, 2013 from complications of a hip fracture. She was born in Stella, Mo. on July 26, 1925 to Charlie and Lona Cox. She was preceded in death by her parents and her brother Bill. She leaves behind her brothers Howard Cox, of Rocky Comfort, Mo.; Bob (Geraldine) Cox, of Pineville, Mo.; Cecil (Shirley) Cox, of Joplin, Mo.; her baby sister, Shirley Ann (Duane) Kerr, of Rocky Comfort, Mo. and Bill’s widow, Rubena Cox, of Granby, Mo. She also leaves behind numerous nieces, nephews and other relatives that she loved dearly. She was extremely close to all of her family. When she was younger, she would go home to Missouri every few years, so they could all sit around the kitchen table, eat and talk. We are all so happy that she was able to go back and see them one last time in September 2012. She came back talking about how the neighbor gave them a bunch of tomatoes, so she was able to have her favorite breakfast every day of tomatoes, bacon,eggs and toast, as she was still a farm girl at heart. Ruth adored her brothers, her sister, her brother-in-law, her sisters-in-law and all of the other relatives she has left behind in Missouri, and they felt the same way about her. If there was one wish

she could have in this world, it would have been a magic wand so that she could live in Oak Harbor but they could all just live a mile or two down the road from her. Ruth was raised on a farm and was a hard worker, but was determined to do something different in her life. After graduating from high school in 1947, she moved to Corpus Christi, Texas and found a job as a waitress. Shortly after that, she met a handsome sailor, Bob Hughes, and they were married six months later. It wasn’t until they were filling out their marriage certificate that she told him her real name was Ruth and that she was calling herself Penny because she liked the sound of it better. He married her anyway, and after tours in Millington, Tenn. and Norfolk, Va. they moved to Oak Harbor in 1955 with their three children. They were married up until 1975, when they got divorced. At that time, Ruth went to work at the Navy Exchange and ended up in the jewelry department, which she loved. According to her, you can never have too many rings on your fingers, in fact you can fit two on some fingers and the gaudier the better. She also loved clothes and shoes and every closet in her house was crammed full of them, some with the tags still on. She is remembered as always being dressed fancy, with full makeup and elaborate hairstyles, even to run to the grocery store. She made many good friends while working at the Exchange and they still remain friends to this very day. A few years later, after some pretty disastrous dates, she went to the VFW where a good looking man named Tom Edward asked her to dance to the song “Silver Wings” and after that night they were both goners. They married and were together for 30 years and were truly the love of each others lives. She went from wanting to leave the farm life, to moving out to Silver Lake Road where she could have a garden, chickens, a pony and numerous cats and dogs over the years. Ruth loved to cook and Tom loved to eat, so they made a fine match. After many years of happiness Tom passed away in December of 2008, which broke Ruth’s heart but she was determined to continue living at the home they had made together. At the age of 83 she was still out stacking wood for the

wood stove, but she finally agreed to use the baseboard heater instead, just so her kids would stop nagging her. Those heating bills were pretty hefty because Ruth loved a hot house, not just in the winter but in the middle of summer. If it was 80 degrees outside, it was 85 degrees inside. You never had to wear a jacket in that house. After living alone out there for three years, Ruth very reluctantly agreed to move into an assisted living place in town, much to the relief of her children. They expected it would be a slow adjustment period, however (as usual) she surprised them. Within two hours she told her daughter that she thought she was going to like it there, as the people were so nice. She also discovered that it was much easier for her friends to come visit her now that she lived in town, so she had a very busy social calendar between lunches with friends, senior trips and visits from her kids, grandkids and great-grandkids. She happily lived there from January 2012 until January 2013, when she fell and broke her hip. That injury led to a series of nursing homes and hospital stays and she eventually ended up in Bellingham, close to her oldest daughter. There she lived in an assisted living place, where her kids, grandkids and great-grandkids would come to visit her. She particularly loved visits by her great-grandkids as she enjoyed their energy and loved to stick her false teeth out at them, something she has been doing to small children for many years. Ruth tried valiantly to recover from her hip surgery, but eventually it wore her down and it was time for her to leave this Earth,which she did quietly and peacefully with family by her side. Ruth was known as sis, sister, mom, mother, grandma, Grandma Coco, Grandma GiGi, Ruth, Ruthie and friend. Going to the grocery store with her would turn into a three-hour social event as she would compliment every baby she saw, and ask every person, stranger or friend, how they were doing, and stand there waiting for an answer. It was her outgoing nature, along with her kindness and sense of humor that resulted in her having an enormous amount of friends from all different areas of her life. Her grandsons thought she was funny, but her granddaughters thought she was hilarious as she reserved some of her many jokes for women. When asked by doctors how she was doing she would usually reply “fine as a frog hair split in the middle”

much to their confusion and/ or amusement. This past year during her many different stays at nursing homes, assisted living places and visits to the ER, every person who came in contact with her commented on how sweet she was and how she was one of their favorites. She was easy to love as she cared about other people even in the midst of her own problems. She leaves behind her son Larry (Karen) Hughes of Irmo, S.C.; her daughter Penny Johnson, of Bellingham, Wash.; her daughter Connie (Russ) Ray, of Lakewood, Wash.; and her seven grandkids Heather (Todd) Copeland, Kriss Hughes, McLean (Lara) Johnson, Jessie (Stephen) Burton-Johnson, Lonny (Courtney) Johnson, Heidi (Josh) Welborn and Chelsea (Ty) Ericson. She also leaves behind 10 great-grandkids: Haley and Owen Copeland, Phoenix and Caius Johnson, Camren Burton, Abby Johnson, Maddie, Zoe and Jack Welborn, and the newest little one, Asher Ericson. Her family grieves her passing but takes solace in knowing that they all got to visit with her in her last year. We also believe that she knew how deeply she was loved by both her family and her many friends both near and far. Ruth will be laid to rest at Maple Leaf Cemetery next to her beloved Tom, in a private ceremony. An engraved marker will also be placed at the cemetery in Missouri where her parents and her brother are laid to rest. Next summer, her family will gather together to eat good food, and tell long stories into the night about mom, grandma, and greatgrandma; how much we enjoyed her and how much we still miss her. We hope that her many friends will know how much she cherished them, and will remember all of the good times they had together. Please join us in rejoicing that she is no longer in pain and is at peace. She was a lucky woman, married to the man she adored, surrounded by old friends who loved her and a family who will never forget her. Next time you go to Applebees, order a shrimp and spinach salad (after first looking at everything else on the menu even though you are going to always end up ordering the shrimp and spinach salad) hold up a Dr. Pepper and think of our mom. If you wish to make a donation in her name, she loved animals and babies so take your pick of the many charities available.

Bill Keith Morrow Sr.

Bill Keith Morrow Sr. passed away on Oct. 18, 2013 at his home in Oak Harbor surrounded by family and friends. He was born on July 22, 1926 in Point Pleasant, W. Va. to James and Mae Morrow. Bill grew up during the depression and was raised with the help of many family and friends, but spent most of his young years with his Pops and Grandma Morrow. Like most young men of his era, he joined the Navy on his 17th birthday to support the war effort. He served with VP-2 at Whidbey Island Naval Air Station from 1943 to 1946. Flying support missions up and down the west coast and in the Pacific. While on a 24-hour pass in 1944, he met Louella Ann Wells in Anacortes, Wash. They would marry and spend 64 years as husband and wife; experiencing the joys and heartaches of a long full life together raising three boys, building a home, running a business and experiencing the stability they never knew as children. Bill went to work with the civil service on NAS Whidbey in 1946 and worked as a letterer and grainer or what is commonly known as a sign painter until his retirement in 1981. He also owned his own business and painted most every sign on the Island until the early ‘90s. Bill took a two-year break from 19501952 as he was called back to Navy service for the Korean Conflict. Bill was a creative man who loved working with his

hands. He loved to paint, draw and carve wood. He built furniture for his family and friends, some of his specialties being roll top desks, grandfather clocks and whatever he found interesting. During his life he designed and built some 50 boats for himself and others as the water was the one place he found his greatest joy. In his later years, he loved buying and selling unique items and trips to the casino to see who he could chat up. He was a colorful character who loved a good four-letter word and liked to complain about things just to keep his blood pressure right. Now he is on his way to join his beloved wife Louella, or Momma as he called her and that’s a fitting ending to any life well lived. Bill is survived by his sons Bill Jr. and wife Maggie, Ed and Jim Morrow, of Oak Harbor; special niece Sharon Creech and husband Bobby, of Olympia, Wash.; special friends Wendy Morrow, Martha Sylvester and husband Chris, of Coupeville, Wash.; grandsons Justin Morrow, of Seattle; Travis Morrow, of Seattle; Jason Morrow, of Issaquah; Jared Morrow, of Oak Harbor; Jakob Giles, of Oak Harbor and James Barker Oak Harbor; granddaughters Charlene Bergstrom, of Woodland; and Korja Giles, of Olympia; his brother Michael Morrow and many other nieces, nephews and family friends.

Oak Harbor expects to surprise opponents at volleyball district By JIM WALLER Sports editor

It’s hard to be stealthy when you are a 6-foot, 3-inch young lady, but Oak Harbor High School volleyball player Kayleigh Harper said she and her teammates will sneak up on the competition at the district tournament next week. “We will surprise a lot of people at district,” Harper said. “We have the skills.” Good defense leads to qualify offensive chances

in volleyball, and for Oak Harbor to be successful in the tournament, it will need to sharpen its passing precision to get the ball to Harper, its offensive powerhouse. Wildcat head coach Kerri Molitor maintained all year that her team, if it could qualify for district, has the potential to defeat any team in the tournament. Though a struggle, the Wildcats (4-5, 4-10) earned a district berth by winning its

The 6-foot, 3-inch Kayleigh Harper can be an imposing figure at the net for opponents of the Oak Harbor volleyball team.

final two matches to finish in a three-way tie for fifth in the 10-team Western Conference standings. Molitor and the Wildcats were frustrated by inconsistent play this fall. Oak Harbor won the Lynden Tournament and finished sixth out of 16 teams at the talent-laden Wenatchee Tournament. Regular-season matches, however, were a different story. While the Wildcats have several things to clean up to make a strong district run, passing and confidence are the keys, according to Molitor. Harper, a hitting machine and intimidating blocker, agrees: “Passing is a weakness. We need to do a better job digging so we can get into our offense. Our serve receive is getting better; we are fixing that.” She also noted the fragile psyche of the club: “This year’s team needs a lot of encouragement.” Harper sees it as her duty as a senior to provide leadership and provide a confidence boost. Her greatest growth as a player over the last four years, she said, has been in that role. “I wasn’t vocal at all in the past,” she said. Harper received her first varsity playing time at the district tournament her freshman year. She has been a fixture in the Oak Harbor lineup since and earned first-team, all-conference honors last fall. Molitor recalled Harper’s debut as a freshman at district and was impressed with the young player’s composure. “She has never been a player that gets rattled,” Molitor said. “She always does her job and makes the plays at the net. I have always had confidence in her,” Molitor said. “She has matured into a fierce competitor on the court. Her skills and knowledge of the game will prepare her for the next level.” That next level will be

Harper was recruited heavily by DI schools Texas Tech and New Mexico State but liked WWU more. Harper said, “It’s close to home and I really like their program.” She added that since Molitor is a graduate of WWU, Oak Harbor plays a similar style as the Vikings, which will make the transition easier. Molitor said, “I am very proud of her; she will make a great Viking.” Also joining Harper at Western will be club teammate Taylor Lyall of Sehome High School. Harper plays for SkagitIsland Volleyball Academy during the high school off-season, along with Oak Harbor’s Claire Anderson, Hailey Beecher and Makenna Martyn. Harper said club ball is “way more competitive” and

she likes the competition. The focus now, however, is qualifying for state, according to Harper. Oak Harbor, the seventh seed in the eight-team tournament, starts district play at second-seeded Meadowdale (8-1, 11-3) at 7 p.m. Tuesday, Nov 5. The Mavericks are coWesco North champions and defeated Oak Harbor 3-0 Oct. 15. The match was similar to most others for the Wildcats, a close loss, this time 25-22, 25-21, 25-18. Molitor said, “To be successful, we need to go in with a winning attitude, confident that on any given day anything can happen. Our record is behind us now; we will play each match as it comes. I believe we have the talent to go all the way. We just have to execute on game day.” Oak Harbor will play again at Meadowdale Thursday, Nov. 7, in the double elimination tournament. Thirdseeded Everett (7-2, 12-3) and

sixth-seeded Shorewood (4-5, 7-7) are in the same bracket. The losers meet at 5 p.m. Thursday, the winners at 7 p.m. The tournament continues Saturday, Nov. 9, at Glacier Peak. Three teams qualify for state.

Coupeville duo earns King’s tops Wolves to go unbeaten a state tennis berth By JIM WALLER Sportrs editor

Coupeville doubles partners Aaron Curtin and Ben Etzell earned a spot in the 1A state tennis tournament by placing third at quad-district Tuesday, Oct. 29, at the Amy Yee Tennis Center in Seattle. Since some schools play boys tennis in the spring, the state finals are May 30 and 31 in Yakima. It could be an interesting spring for Curtin and Etzell. Both play for the Coupeville baseball team, and the state baseball tournament is also in Yakima on the same dates. Tennis coach Ken Stange said he is “hoping the baseball team goes all the way to the final four, then we can see the boys truly do it all.” Coupeville sophomore singles player Sebastian Davis also competed at quad-district but did not advance. Curtin, a junior, and Etzell, a senior, started quad-district with a 6-4, 3-6, 6-4 win over a Charles Wright Academy pair. Stange said his duo played well in the first set, overcoming a cold, wet morning as well as their opponents. Things “went south” in the second set, Stange said, but Curtin and Etzell “came back strong in the third, balancing power with consistency.” The final set went deuce

several times before the Wolves prevailed. The Coupeville pair lost to the two-time defending state champion Grenley twins of the Charles Wright Academy 6-1, 6-1 in the semifinals. The loss dropped Curtin and Etzell into a winner-tostate match against a Vashon pair. An early lead in the first set carried the Wolves to a 6-4 win. After dropping the first three games of the second set, they roared back to force a tie-breaker. They jumped to a 6-2 lead in the breaker and won 7-6(7-5). “They worked their tails off to chase down every stray ball. They hustled. They were amped up. They bounced back when they got down. Now they have an opportunity to play in the state tourney,” Stange said. Davis lost 6-0, 6-0 in the first round to eventual tournament champion Jack Katzman of University Prep. He fell 6-2, 6-3 to a Vashon opponent in the consolation bracket. “The experience of playing against two state qualifiers will benefit Sebastian in the future. I look forward to two more strong years with Sebastian on our team,” Stange said.

‘Cats fall in finale

Oak Harbor senior Casiano Atienza dropped two matches and was eliminated from the District 1 3A tennis tournament at Stanwood High School Tuesday, Oct. 29. Atienza opened district with a 6-1, 6-2 loss to No. 1 seed Nishant Limaye of Shorecrest, then fell 6-0, 6-1 to Everett’s Ulises Aceves. Atienza was a surprise qualifier for district, placing fourth in the Wesco North tournament after playing third singles all season for Oak Harbor.

The Oak Harbor High School soccer team ended the 2013 season with a 1-0 loss at Stanwood Wednesday, Oct. 30, but the Wildcats displayed improvement this fall. Oak Harbor’s 4-11-1 record doesn’t shout success; however, compared to recent campaigns, it’s on the upswing. The four-match win total equals the total of the last five seasons combined, and the Wildcats surrendered only 38 goals this year as compared to 70 last year,

King’s wrapped up a perfect regular season at Coupeville’s expense, beating the host Wolves 3-0 Tuesday, Oct. 29. The Knights (14-0, 16-0), who are currently ranked third in the state 1A poll, won 25-19, 25-17, 25-14. Coupeville finished its season 2-12 in conference play and 3-12 overall. The match marked the end of high school volleyball for six Coupeville seniors, all honor students: Sydney Aparicio, Amanda Fabrizi, Allie Hanigan, Breeanna Messner, Megan Oakes and Haley Sherman. First-year head coach Kirsty Croghan said it is hard to see these girls leave because “they are such a wonderful group of young ladies, and they are great examples and role models for our younger group.” She added, “On the flip side of things, I get a lot of joy seeing them take the next step to moving on to bigger things and adventures.” All were among the stat leaders in the King’s match. Messner recorded two assists, hit 14 serves, had 10 positive serve receives and 11 positive defensive plays. Fabrizi earned 11 positive serve receives and defenaccording to coach Mike Lonborg. “We started changing the culture this year and started to learn how to compete, which hopefully will turn into learning how to win,” Lonborg said. The Stanwood (5-8, 5-10) match was tied at the half, then the Spartans scored on a breakaway 15 minutes into the second half. “Lauryn Plush played well at midfield and had some great crosses,” Lonborg said. The game was “very physical,” Lonborg said, and three girls left with injuries.

Artists etch portraits in pumpkins By RON NEWBERRY Staff reporter

It’s not everyday that an artist’s medium is squash. But that was the challenge that 33 art students in a sculpture design class at Oak Harbor High School faced recently when instructor Jennifer Yates asked them to etch self portraits. On pumpkins. The results impressed her. The students used their hand-carving tools to produce some creative portraits and set out their finished products in a court yard at school. This week, they were able to collect them and take See Pumpkins, A13

A sweet Halloween Kids of all ages dress up for safe trick-or-treating in downtown OH By RON NEWBERRY

T Staff reporter

Self-portrait sculpture projects from Jennifer Yates’ sculpture design class at Oak Harbor High School include works (top to bottom) from sophomore Kyle Houck, an inspiring film maker; freshman Lindsey Beerbower; and junior Eduardo AndradeGutierrez, who recently came from Toluca City, Mexico.

here comes a time in life when it starts feeling silly to dress up and go out trickor-treating on Halloween night. It’s a good thing for 14-year-old Russell Derting, that time is still eons away. The way Derting sees it, he’s got a good three or four more years until he needs to think about leaving the pillow case at home. That’s why he dressed up in San Francisco 49ers garb and joined four other Oak Harbor High School freshmen downtown and held his hand out for candy. If only he could have held his temper.

Pink skies on an unseasonably pleasant night allowed trick-or-treaters to enjoy unveiling outfits and digging into candy bowls. “Stop trying to get my candy,” he yelled to his nephew, who was bent on trying to grab the pillow case from under his feet. “That’s not funny!” There were lots of smiles in downtown Oak Harbor Thursday night. A crowd estimated at more than 1,000 showed up for the traditional “No Tricks, Safe Treats” event put on by Downtown Merchants Association and

sponsored by Island Thrift. Kids lined Pioneer Way as they patiently waited for candy at participating businesses. As it turned out, most businesses did take part, greeting kids with a smile and a treat. Island Thrift provided a grant of $3,000 to purchase candy and distribute among merchants, which got four-tosix large bags apiece. Many businesses bought additional

candy in anticipation of the large crowd on what turned out to be a dry and unseasonable warm autumn evening with a pink sunset and eerie dark clouds. Margaret Livermore, president of the downtown merchants, said she and Paint Your World owner Ron Apgar each brought two carloads full of candy back from the Burlington Costco to distribute to merchants.

Livermore said she went through all six of her bags at Garry Oak Gallery and said lines of kids seemed longer than she’d seen in the past. “This year, there was a line to get out of the mall (at Harborside Village) to go down the street to the next place. It’s never been that way before,” she said. Although the area See HALLOWEEN, A13

Secret acts of devotion are the best paths I love taking road trips and the more spontaneous the better. As long as my husband and I have a full tank of gas, our phones and iPad, coffee, and a blanket for me, we are good to go. With such amenities we can text, Facebook, watch movies, use our GPS features, listen to music, read or game. The world is at our fingertips if we want it to be. The main reason I love to explore by car, beyond the fun of seeing new sights and meeting new people, is the fact that I can be quiet with my husband. We don’t have to fill every silence with conversation if we don’t want to. I love to sit beside him, put my hand atop his hand resting on the stick shift, and think about him. Think about our life together. Think about new plans and hopes. I can spend time

loving him without interruption. I share this because writer Gary Thomas, who identifies 10 distinctive personality types in his book, “Sacred Pathways: Discover Your Soul’s Path to God,” claims that there are people who connect with God best when they spend uninterrupted time simply loving Him. Thomas calls these people, “contemplatives,” and while I don’t count myself among them, my

desire to emotionally connect with my husband and the joy I experience just being with him gives me insight into this very interesting pathway to God. Contemplatives understand that God does not seek dispassionate servants; instead He desires relationships based on love. They point to scripture, especially Deuteronomy 6:5 that says, “Love the Lord your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your strength.” They also point to numerous Bible stories where people’s genuine worship of God is cherished, valued and rewarded. Contemplatives connect with God and love Him more deeply during times of prayer and are quite creative in their approaches. One such prayer is a simple one

that goes like this: “Come to my aid, God; Lord, come quickly to help me.” Such a simple invitation reminds people of their need for God and full-fledged desire to be with Him. Another favorite prayer is called a “Centering Prayer” and involves no activity other than resting in the presence of God. Called “meditation” by others, when you center yourself in prayer you can choose one word to mentally repeat each time your mind drifts away from the goal to focus on God and be near Him. If the idea of being still is difficult, yet you still long to purely love God with all your being for intense moments, join other contemplatives who enjoy secret acts of devotion no one will ever know about. The importance of secrecy ensures you

are dong it for the love of God and the possibilities are many: An anonymous gift of cash to someone in need Fasting and prayer for someone in crisis Working behind the scenes to help someone get a job Sending a note of encouragement to someone Planting a tree to commemorate the life of someone treasured and missed. Contemplatives remind us that offering God our personal love and affection is a treasured gift. May we grow in our desire to express that love.

Daryl and Amy Huwa of Oak Harbor brought their two sons, Markus and Preston, who dressed as Ninja Turtles. They didn’t see the need to go anywhere else after the downtown event. “They’re usually so tired,” Amy Huwa said. Derting still had plenty of energy as he walked and surveyed the offerings along with fellow freshmen Justin Powers and Katelyn Jandreau. They’d been coming to downtown on Halloween night for years and didn’t see that trend ending any time soon. “My brother was 18 and he was still trick-or-treating,” Jandreau said.

He’s proven to be somewhat of a natural. “He’s a phenomenal artist,” Yates said. “He’s never had any art class.” Sophomore Kyle Houck, an aspiring film maker, went so far as to carve a pumpkin that depicts him shooting a film. Yates said she was thankful for the community’s support in passing a levy last winter that allowed classes such as hers to exist at Oak Harbor. “These are the ones that are cut when there are major cuts in schools,” she said. “The levy passing had a major impact on us.”

He told how fishing resorts provided an economical getaway for families. People came for the beauty of Whidbey Island, salmon were plentiful and it was an escape from the humdrum of everyday life. The Historical Society researched and now tells the story. Haroldson, the book’s au-

thor, grew up in Seattle and spent much of his leisure time fishing on Whidbey. He will show a video of Whidbey’s famous fishing resorts, which are all closed plus bring copies of his book for sale that includes many old pictures, articles, a map and paintings. 360-321-4018, or scottpat@whidbey.com

Church note

n “Throw your weight right onto the scale” is the topic of the next audio chat hosted by the Christian Science Reading Room, 11 a.m., Tuesday, Nov. 5. Over 68.8 percent of Americans are overweight or obese, and people in other countries also face this problem. Many remedies are offered — from drugs to diets — but they don’t always lead to a permanent solution because they neglect the place where change is really needed, in your thoughts about who you are and the discovery of your spiritual identity. In this chat with Michelle Nanouche, a Christian Science healer and teacher, learn about how practicing deeper spirituality, rather than paying close attention to your weight, can bring you satisfying answers that will lead to a “new you” and to a deeper realization that you are, and always have been, loved by God. The Reading Room is located at 721 SW 20th Court, near Scenic Heights, or log on to www.jsh-online.com/chats
