Langley police dept. ponders staff needs, again

The robo awards

By BEN WATANABE South Whidbey Record Langley’s interim police chief has been plenty busy lately, and among his many duties is reconsideration of an old staffing issue — does the department need three officers or four? The Langley Police Department is down an officer after former chief Randy Heston retired this August. David Marks was named interim chief while the city seeks its next top cop, and two of Marks’ recent duties were to evaluate his department’s activities and propose a department budget for the city’s $1.5 million general fund. The police force survey is expected to be presented in February or March. Langley’s police department had a $384,706 budget for 2013, about 22 percent of the city’s total operating budget. The law enforcement budget may be reduced if the city determines it should operate with two full-time officers and a chief. The department had four officers — including the chief — for 15 years but cut the number to three several years ago. “The size of the department is a really important decision that should be based on data gathering,” said Mayor Fred McCarthy, adding that it was too early to speculate on the impact of reducing the department to three officers. The reconsideration comes after Heston and former Mayor Larry Kwarsick successfully swayed the council last year to restore the number of officers to four for the 2013 budget, arguing that the cost of the additional SEE POLICE, A16

Team takes 11th at world competition By JANIS REID South Whidbey Record Members of Whidbey Island’s homegrown underwater robotics team were honored by the Island County Board of Commissioners on Monday for placing 11th in an international competition. After becoming Pacific Northwest Champions in early May, the Atlantis, Inc. team members competed at the

12th Annual MATE International ROV Competition against more than 30 of the best high school teams from around the world, including Macao, Egypt, Venezuela, Scotland, Taiwan, Canada, Singapore, Macau, Hong Kong and the United States. More than 620 teams around the world participated SEE COMPETITION, A11

The Island County commissioners are considering an ordinance Monday that would put new Conservation Futures Fund purchases on hold for one year. The proposal has raised concerns from program supporters who fear that the measure, which would reduce the levy and prevent new projects, would be a permanent decision and halt the Conservation Futures projects for good. A public hearing on the ordinance will be held 6:15 p.m. Monday at the Board of County Commissioners Hearing Room. Commissioner Kelly Emerson said Friday that she supports the proposal. She said that she has repeatedly asked for a moratorium on new Conservation Futures purchases, and that the ordinance is a compromise she and Johnson reached during the budget process. During the budget process, Emerson had called the program “out of control.” Commissioner Jill Johnson said Friday she has received more than 100 emails from concerned citizens accusing her of “attacking” the program and saying, “Don’t get rid of the program.” Several letters to the editor have appeared in the Whidbey News-Times and South Whidbey Record. Johnson said this is not her intention. “Where I’m coming from SEE FUND, A16

said Navy representatives were invited to the event, but Meyers was not sent to represent the Navy base. “Jennifer was there as her own person, just to listen and observe,” Welding said. Meyer had asked for the microphone to ask a question of one of the health professionals, said Monson, and Welding confirmed. Monson asked her to identify herself as a Navy employee, she refused and then left. “I wish she’d had the guts to stay,” Monson said later. A handful of people who spoke called out Congressman Rick Larsen as being pro-Navy and unsympathetic to their concerns. “Jobs jobs jobs, that’s all that matters to Rick Larsen,” said Oak Harbor resident Tim Verschuyl. “We have to stand up and make our voices heard.” When asked to respond to these comments, Larsen’s office issued the following comments via email: “Rep. Larsen has met with community members, elected officials and NAS Whidbey Island leadership on this issue at least 14 separate times to

discuss concerns about aircraft noise at NAS Whidbey and the outlying field. At his encouragement, the base restarted its community leaders meetings to provide a forum for local community leaders to discuss these kinds of issues and the base started providing a lot more information about operations at the field. “Rep. Larsen is committed to ensuring that NAS Whidbey Island remains one of the preeminent military installations used by our armed forces, while also ensuring that those who live near the base are not negatively impacted by base operations.”

But in reference to Verschuyl’s comment about jobs, Larsen’s office said, “The constituent is absolutely correct that Rep. Larsen is absolutely focused on job creation and investing in the foundation of long-term economic growth in Northwest Washington.” Bowman, who has worked in state and local health policy for years, encouraged attendees to continue to contact their elected representatives on every level about their concerns. “The squeaky wheel gets the oil,” Bowman said. “Let your legislators know how you feel. You need to either thank them or spank them.”

The group organizing the event, Citizens of Ebey’s Reserve, or COER, filed a federal suit against the Navy in July over jet noise at Outlying Field Coupeville, part of Whidbey Island Naval Air Station. In its lawsuit, COER demanded an Environmental Impact Statement, or EIS, be conducted by the Navy. Detractors claim that the Navy’s new aircraft, the EA-18G Growler is louder than its predecessor, the EA-6B Prowler, and that the Navy performed far more landing practices at OLF Coupeville than it estimated in 2005. The Navy, which suspended operations at OLF until the end of the year, announced in July its intention to initiate an EIS. Monson announced at the end of the meeting that a Navy liaison had walked out of the meeting “in a huff.” “That’s your Navy,” Monson told the group. The Navy employee, Jennifer Meyer, works as a liaison officer for Whidbey Island Naval Air Station, but attended simply as a private citizen, according to Mike Welding, NAS Whidbey public affairs officer.

Frustration was apparent Tuesday as more than 100 people gathered to hear health professionals talk about the effects of jet noise on adults and children. After the presentations, a microphone was passed around to allow audience members to comment and ask questions. Occupational Specialist and Registered Nurse Karen Bowman warned of the impact of over-exposure to extreme noise levels. According to studies, she said, the brain interprets loud noises as danger, triggering a chain reaction of stress hormones. She said this can result in increased anxiety, hypertension and lead to cardiac diseases. “We do know there is significant health effects with jet noise, and it’s increased with night-time noise exposure,” Bowman said. Washington State University researcher Katherine Karr admitted that the best option healthwise was for the source of the jet noise to be removed. Members of the audience, however, scoffed when Karr suggested that to mitigate the effects they simply remove themselves from proximity to the noise or wear protective earplugs. University researcher Samantha Serrano, who gave the presentation on impacts to children, said that she was unable to find any specific research in reference to the effect of military aircraft noise on children. She did present data, however, about the

effect of commercial airports on children. Serrano said that children living near airports had more difficulties with reading, finishing tasks and staying focused. Studies on physical health impacts for children, such as hearing loss, are largely inconclusive, she said, and more research will need to be done in this field. Three open houses hosted by the Navy are scheduled as follows: 4-8 p.m. Tuesday, Dec. 3, at Coupeville High School; 4-8 p.m. Wednesday, Dec. 4, at Oak Harbor High School; and 4-8 p.m. Thursday, Dec. 5, at Anacortes Middle School. “Please come to the scoping meeting,” said North Whidbey resident Shannon Stone during the comment period. “If we’re not heard, nothing happens. Show up with your information, your anger, your love of your grandchildren … they need to hear how we live.” Former county commissioner Angie Homola told the group that she was a Navy wife and advocated for additional P-8As due to the difference in noise produced from the Prowler and Growler aircraft. She said the community needs to work with the Navy to solve the issue. “None of the Navy folks want to hurt those folks,” Homola said. “They don’t want to damage them. But we have to ask the difficult questions so we are protected.” “You can say to the Navy, ‘How are you possibly going to protect my children playing in a ball field?’ ” said organizer Michael Monson in his introduction. “What is that doing to you? That is what we are here to learn tonight.”

NEWSLINE | WEATHER REPORT: Sunny through Tuesday, with a catch. Ice-cold temperatures at night.

SOUTH END Measles scare was unfounded News of a German Measles outbreak on South Whidbey has turned out to be unfounded, according to island health officials. “We can call off the code red,” said Brad Thomas, health officer for Island County. Last week, a 17-year-

old girl visited a Freeland nurse practitioner and tested positive for the virus, also known as Rubella. The girl was misdiagnosed, however, and the error wasn’t discovered until after the practitioner had posted alerts on Facebook and warned local schools, Thomas said. “There’s a bunch of people on South Whidbey who are scared their kids will get Rubella,” he said. Alerting the community of an outbreak is the 15 th year!

appropriate step, said Thomas — it’s just the diagnosis in this case was incorrect. He added that German measles is difficult to detect. Up to 50 percent of those who have contracted the virus don’t even know they have it, he said. Also, it’s not lethal to adults or children but can be dangerous to pregnant women, resulting in a high chance of children born with hearing loss or other congenital birth defects.

the South Whidbey Parks and Recreation District, which is supposed to encourage people to get out and be more active, unanimously approved a remote attendance policy for themselves Tuesday. The smaller-than-usual board of three commissioners — two were absent — voted 3-0 to approve being able to attend the once-a-month meetings by phone or by video chat. Parks Director Doug Coutts warned of issues that have happened with the Island County Board of Commissioners, specifically referring to Commissioner Kelly Emerson’s technical difficulties with remote attendance. He also urged the commissioners to only use the policy when it is necessary. “It’s the exception, not the rule,” he said. Still, the policy may have come in handy Nov. 18 when the commissioners delayed their meeting by 30 minutes because commission President Don Wood missed the ferry sailing in Mukilteo. His plight was sympathized with by other commissioners. “Some days it’s just tough,” said Commissioner Joel Gerlach. “There are family emergencies, business meetings.” Three of the five commissioners work off Whidbey Island. The Port of South

Whidbey and the Langley City Council have similar policies.

Blynd looks into sailing partners Captn Blynd, the defeated South Whidbey Parks commissioner candidate, didn’t stay down for long. As he promised during his campaign to remain active in the district’s business, Blynd pitched an idea to the parks commissioners. Blynd wanted to know how the South Whidbey Parks and Recreation District could partner with a yacht club or sailing club. An avid sailor, he wanted to work with the Washington Department of Fish and Wildlife, which owns Deer, Goss and Lone lakes, to set up an agreement to host boats near the water. “WDFW wants to keep it for fish and wildlife, not sailing, so they’ll be resistant to a permanent structure there,” said Parks Director Doug Coutts at the commissioners meeting Tuesday. Blynd also proposed looking into hosting a yacht club on the dock at the Holmes Harbor Golf Course, which is not owned by the parks district. South Whidbey Parks has offered popular youth and adult sailing classes on Lone Lake. The South Whidbey Yacht Club runs the program.

New shelter one step in WAIF’s goal for expanding service By NathaN WhaleN South Whidbey Record If fundraising goes as expected, stray animals caught on Whidbey Island could have a new home. Of ficials with the Whidbey Animals’ Improvement Foundation (WAIF) are raising money and constructing a new campus. Nearly $2 million has been raised and leaders are looking to collect another $1.8 million to pay for construction of a new 8,700-square-foot building on 9.8 acres of land located across the street from the current shelter near Coupeville. WAIF’s current home is only 2,200 square feet in size, lacks potable water and is located on a former landfill that vents methane. “It’s a pretty minimal space,” said Bob Rupp, WAIF board president who is also helping manage the project. “We’re grateful the county has let us use the building for as long as we have.” He added the countyowned building was never designed to be a shelter and it’s a challenge for staff to meet health standards. Officials announced the public portion of the fundraising campaign in August. The public portion of the campaign features a “Tag the Wall” medallion. Donors pay $50 for a custom engraved dog or cat medallion, which will be placed on a wall in the new shelter. In the months since the public announcement, approximately $150,000 has been raised. Rupp said a “friendly competition” is underway to see whether more dog lovers or cat lovers purchase a medallion.

“We’re grateful the county has let us use the building for as long as we have.”

WAIF leaders are raising money to build a larger, more comfortable shelter for the animals the organization houses. Rupp described WAIF as a minimal-kill shelter, where dogs and cats, either too sick or too incorrigible, are euthanized. He added that about 60 percent of the dogs and cats are eventually returned to their owners. In 2012, 320 dogs and 173

cats came through the WAIF shelter near Coupeville. For the dogs, 141 were adopted, 132 were returned to their owners, four were transferred to other shelters and 14 were put to sleep. For cats, 123 were adopted and 14 were put to sleep while

Publisher’s column

Even island ‘Mean Girls’ have a voice By Keven Graves

Editor’s note: The following column may contain language considered offensive by some.

Politics is a blood sport on Whidbey Island. Within weeks of my arrival here nearly nine months ago, I managed to upset the local Tea Party supporters and quickly landed on their long list of “enemies.” I don’t believe I was targeted because I’m a political creature. In fact, I rarely discuss my personal politics. It’s boring stuff. Last week’s South Whidbey Record, with its coverage of Island County Commissioner Kelly Emerson, opened a floodgate of personal attacks online from the Tea Party support group. We published an article about Emerson’s poor attendance at commissioner meetings. In the same issue was an editorial critical of the lawsuit Emerson and her husband filed against Island County. Kelly Emerson is a public figure. She is paid a healthy salary by taxpayers to do her job. As such, she is subject to greater public scrutiny than the average citizen. Building a deck at her Camano Island home without a permit … suing Island County, i.e., the taxpayers … missing a high number of commissioner meetings ... those all merit newspaper coverage. The online Tea Party group — mostly comprised of middle-aged men I have dubbed “the Mean Girls” — announced about a month ago that I was the recipient of the “Anal Sphincter Award,” and declared me the “biggest a-hole” in a very lengthy diatribe. I was intrigued. I am still waiting to see what that award looks like and watching for the invitation to the awards banquet. At various times in various posts, the Mean Girls declared I was “doing a crappy job,” described me as a “liberal pig,” “unethical,” “smug,” “rude,” “a diaper doper baby,” a purveyor of “smut,” “a parrot,” and much more. Said one commenter, “Keven R. Graves, be comforted in the fact that your local fish wrappers are easily recycled into toilet paper, which provides a sustainable supply for you and your crew. Sustainability is a desirable trait according to Whidbey’s DemonRats and environmental whackos.” At least Mr. Wolf spelled my name correctly. Perhaps he suspects it’s some Russian deviation from the norm? SEE MEAN GIRLS, A7

Letters Conservation Futures

Keep the fund, preserve Whidbey Editor, I understand the county commissioners will be voting on the Conservation Futures Fund Levy on Monday, Nov. 25. This issue strikes at the heart of how we preserve the unique environment on Whidbey Island, to which we moved in 2004. We believe there are many Whidbey Island residents, such as ourselves, who cheerfully pay this tax component and contribute significant additional personal funds toward preserving and improving the properties conserved by the Conservation Futures Fund. The government’s investment in this fund through keeping the current levy is a modest demonstration of stewardship toward our precious commons, and we urge the commissioners to vote in favor of at least maintaining the current levy. We believe Commissioner Jill Johnson’s plan to review the program during 2014 has merit, but it is unwise and premature to reduce the levy in the absence of results from that review. Once the review is complete, the commissioners will have actionable data and information upon which to make a considered judgment on the future of the CFF. Such data might, in fact, demonstrate the wisdom of increasing the levy; our representatives in county government should not prejudge the appropriate action. We would be happy to take the commissioners’

phone calls or emails to explain ourselves further. We visit some of these sites, we walk some of these trails, and they are a wonderful expression of what makes Whidbey Island unique. As the commissioners know, the CFF provides many other benefits to our Whidbey Island lives; clean water, aquifer recharge, and a number of other tangible and intangible attributes, all of which represent a worthy investment in our collective future. Please help keep it that way. Respectfully, PETER and ANNA MARIE MORTON Langley

Time to let Futures become past Editor, As a constituent in District 1, I’m writing to let my voice be heard about the Conservation Futures Fund issue. I have thought long and hard about whether I am for or against Island County government providing any sort of funding to the fund.

On the one hand, I really enjoy going to Double Bluff, taking my dog and walking the beach. I appreciate that to one side of the parking lot — to the north — I’m allowed to access the beach area but to the opposite side — to the south — it is private property and restricted to property owners’ use only. I also enjoy several other Whidbey Camano Land Trust sites. But in contemplating the issue of whether my county government should provide funds for securing and maintaining these lands, I’m persuaded that it is not the right thing for the county to do. Am I right in thinking that the lands under the fund’s umbrella are exempt from paying property taxes? If so, we, as the taxpayers, are already supporting the function financially. Further, isn’t the county government’s role limited to provide certain services, such as public safety, roads, and health? When the local government goes outside of those services they step outside of their charter and

dilute the taxpayer dollars available to support those necessary functions. I believe the necessary functions of this county government are not being met and therefore you should not extend funds to an unnecessary function. A recent example: just this week while at Freeland Park walking my dog around the boat ramp and playground area, I observed that the large trash cans were no longer there. In addition, the doggie-dump trash bin, secured to the post with the doggie bags, was overflowing and trash of all kinds — not just doggie bags containing poop — was lying all around the park. It was a mess. I picked up all the trash, as have my husband and I several other times.

The Hoypus Hill addition connects to and enlarges Deception Pass State Park. The Conservation Futures Fund made these and other acquisitions possible. These lands are not only vital for residents, but attract tourists who visit our local businesses. Those tourists come here because there are no longer miles of public beach and forest trails where they live. We should not repeat that mistake. The open space lands that we conserve now will help attract new residents in the future who value the high quality of life these lands help provide. Conservation Futures is conservation now, for the future. The Conservation Futures Fund has never been able to raise enough to fill the demand. In the 21 years of its existence, no board of commissioners has ever reduced the Conservation Futures Fund. Yet the county commissioners are considering reducing this small tax by about one-third, as well as

freezing new acquisitions. And the Fund would not be saving up money for future acquisitions. We urge the commissioners to reject this shortsighted proposal. The most important part of this program is right in its name. By saving open space now, we are conserving our future and our childrens’ childrens’ future. Please keep the Conservation Futures Fund program at its current level.

Since Island County began using this statewide program in 1992, the Conservation Futures Fund has preserved and created public beach access, forest parks, off-leash dog areas, wildlife habitat of regional significance, miles of hiking, biking, and equestrian trails, and assured that prime farmland stays farmland. Double Bluff County Park, Ala Spit, Greenbank Farm, Freund Marsh, Davis Slough Heron Rookery, Trillium Forest, Iverson Spit, Four Springs Preserve, and the Three Sisters farmland are just a few of the many important open spaces conserved throughout Island County with the help of Conservation Futures Fund. The money raised locally through the tax is highly leveraged, providing the funds required to obtain matching state, federal and non-profit organizational dollars, saving far more open space than could possibly be accomplished with local funding alone. And because many of these places are next to other protected lands, they help create a system of open space lands that is far greater than the sum of its parts. Double Bluff County Park provides access to two miles of state-owned beach that would otherwise be inaccessible to the public.


To the Board of Island County Commissioners: we are organizations that work on behalf of public recreation, habitat conservation, shore access, and animal welfare. We urge the board to continue funding the Conservation Futures Fund at its current level, and not reduce funding or freeze acquisitions. Conservation Futures preserves open space and farm land through a small tax paid by every property owner. It costs the owner of a $250,000 house less than $13 per year. The proposed action will reduce that by about one-third. This is “penny wise and pound foolish.” Through Conservation Futures everyone, rich or poor, gets access to extensive open space lands for less than one-half the price of a State Parks Discover Pass. By state law, the Conservation Futures Fund program may only be used to “protect, preserve, maintain, improve, restore, limit the future use of, or otherwise conserve, selected open space land, farm and agricultural land, and timber land … for public use or enjoyment.” Conservation Futures works on the “willing seller, willing buyer” principle. These lands provide recreation, protect watersheds, conserve wildlife, recharge aquifers, sequester carbon, and assure that prime farmland stays farmland.

Last week, in response to the Emerson coverage, I was dubbed a “journalistic slut.” I’m not sure what that means, but I am considering adding it to my LinkedIn description. I am in good company. Others subjected to name-calling and criticism by the online Mean Girls include Island County commissioners Jill Johnson and Helen Price Johnson, Oak Harbor Chamber of Commerce Executive Director Kathy Reed, both Island County Superior Court judges and former Oak Harbor mayor Jim Slowik. Republican officials who don’t toe the Tea Party line are labeled “DemonRats,” “Republirats” and “RINOs.” I’ve been asked by loved ones if the attacks by the Mean Girls get to me. They do bother my mother, and that does bother me. My son has a sense of humor similar to mine, and jokingly says he agrees with some of the ruder ones. I can truthfully say they don’t get to me, and here’s a few reasons why: First, by their very responses and remarks, the Mean Girls are revealing much more about their own character and beliefs than mine. Second, many of those doing the worst name calling do so anonymously — I believe that is true cowardice. Third, and most importantly to me, as a journalist, what appears in these pages is being read, and it’s leading to a form of discussion. To quote John Roberts, chief justice of the U.S. Supreme Court, “As a nation we have chosen a different course — to protect even hurtful speech on public issues to ensure that we do not stifle public debate.” Indeed.

Cougar cross country surprises at league finale The Langley Middle School cross country teams found their stride in the final Cascade League race of the season last month, claiming first place in both the boys and girls team standings. Five boys and five girls racers from Langley Middle School placed in the top 15, giving the Cougars an edge over Lakewood, Sultan and Granite Falls in the 1.74 mile race. All of Langley’s runners set their fastest race times at the last meet of the year at Lakewood High School. “Coach Steve Jones and I could not be more proud of these kids,” said Cougar coach Jack Terhar in a news release. “Not because they won league championships, but because of the work ethic and support for each other that they developed over the course of the season.” The top girl runner was Elizabeth Donnelly, an eighth-grader at the middle school. She finished with a personal-best time of 11:09.59. Seventh-grade teammate

Lilly Timms was close behind in 11:30.79, good for sixth place. Cougar eighth-grader Julia Hess finished in eighth place in 11:46.00. Nora Anastasi, also an eighth-grader, placed 13th in 12:15.42. Annika Hustad took 15th place in 12:25.07. On the boys team, eighth-grader Arthur Keast led the way with a fourth-place finish in 10:09.15. Teammate Alex Low was on his heels, finishing in 10:29.36, good for sixth place. Ryan Keene placed ninth in 10:44.27. Langley’s other top-15 finishes were claimed by seventh-grader Wes Kemp in 10:59.53 for 14th place, and Zach Lindstrom in 11:00.25 for 15th place. Langley Middle School’s other runners: Max Dodd, 12:09.37; Liam Henny, 12:14.29; Jaden White, 12:26.20; Wren Leoshefskie, 13:25.87; Grace Callahan, 13:26.12; Amara Fulton, 13:26.96; Joe Davies, 13:35.98; Sophie Hamer, 14:41.24; Aly Lynch, 15:02.10; and Russell Daly, 16:48.47.

Scoring the second-most points of the season in a 51-31 win over Cedar Park Christian on Nov. 8 gave South Whidbey football its first overall winning record in almost six years. Facing the Cougars, a non-league opponent, the Falcons took to the air often for big play after big play. The Falcons scored on receiving touchdowns of 43, 50 and 65 yards late in the game to take the lead over the visiting Cougars. “It was fun to win the final game, win at home on the last game of the season,” said Falcon co-head coach Mark Hodson. Playing without senior quarterback Nick French most of the game, South Whidbey hardly missed a beat with junior Parker Collins running the plays. Collins threw four touchdowns to three different receivers and tallied 227 yards — 163 came on scoring tosses alone. Most of South Whidbey’s games this season saw the Falcons score in the 20s, with a couple of aberrations against Coupeville with 57 points and low outings against Lakewood and Cedarcrest. Other than a couple of special teams and offense errors, South Whidbey’s defense controlled the scoreboard.

“Three of their touchdowns are on our mistakes,” Hodson said. “Our defense completely dominated the line of scrimmage.” In the season’s final game, South Whidbey started off a bit rocky with a 37-yard interception by Cedar Park Christian for a quick lead. South Whidbey answered with a 10-play scoring drive. Big plays, including a 26-yard rumble by junior Kohl Hunter and a 12-yard catch by senior Kale Reichersamer led to a 3-yard run by senior Cooper Nichols. After trading possessions, South Whidbey tipped Cedar Park Christian’s punt for a shortened field. That helped South Whidbey put together a 14-play scoring drive. Collins led the way with major gains through the air, including 15-yard and 32-yard tosses to Reichersamer, an 11-yard throw to senior Nick Bennett and an 8-yard touchdown catch by Reichersamer. Down seven points, Cedar Park Christian answered with a quick 80-yard kickoff return for a touchdown. The Eagles forced the Falcons to punt their ensuing possession and led to a 1-yard touchdown. A quick scoring drive was set up by a 66-yard rumble from junior Deven Damerau, which led to a 4-yard run by Nichols. The Falcons’ defense forced the Eagles to punt The Langley Chamber presents the

on their next possession, which senior Uriah Beason returned to Cedar Park territory. Collins found senior Jordan Parrick across the middle of the field for a quick throw which led to a big gain of 43 yards and a touchdown and the go-ahead score. Defense again stifled the Eagles, whose punt was tipped by Bennett. After short gains, Collins fired a deep bomb to Bennett for a 50-yard touchdown. South Whidbey’s final score came on another big play, a 65-yard touchdown catch by Bennett down the Eagles’ sideline after he burned Cedar Park’s defensive back one-on-one. Cedar Park was able to score two more touchdowns in the waning minutes against South Whidbey’s defensive substitutes. Overall, South Whidbey finished with a 6-5 record and went 3-4 in the Cascade Conference. Though the team qualified for the District 1 playoffs, South Whidbey lost 7-0 in a special game, or rather one-half of a game, to Lynden Christian. To break through the first round and push further in the postseason, Hodson said the players needed to take part in an offseason weight training program and play other sports to stay conditioned. “These kids need to play basketball, they need to play baseball, they need to run track,” he said.

Thomas Damien Miller

Thomas “Tom” Damien Miller, 73, of Freeland, Wash., after a long struggle with pulmonary fibrosis, passed away at home Nov. 14 with his wife Debbie by his side. Tom was born Aug. 27, 1940, to Simon Peter Miller and Irene (Waller) Miller of Kellogg, Idaho. He was the youngest of nine children.

His love of the outdoors is legendary, including gardening, hiking, biking, skiing, backpacking, mountain climbing, fishing, trekking, road trips, plane trips and would have included a trip into space if he could have arranged it. He was member of the Mountaineers for many years and made many lifelong friends because of his affiliation to the club. He viewed every day as an adventure. He was also crazy about lighthouses. He graduated from Our Lady of Lourdes Academy High School in Wallace, Idaho and graduated from the University of Idaho. Before retiring in 2000 he served as a crew scheduler and ground crewman for Pan American and then American Airlines. Working for those airlines helped him pursue many of his dreams. In spite of his many personal challenges, he encouraged many to strive for more. Anyone who knew him and had joined him on a hike or climb would hear those encouraging words “we’re almost there, it’s just around the corner” or “the view is spectacular at the top.” Nothing made him stop until he reached the top or finished whatever he set out to do. He is survived by his wife, Debra Miller; stepson, Edward Keimach; brother, James L. (Perina) Miller of Kellogg, Idaho; three sisters: Kay Major of Kellogg, Idaho; Patricia Oliver of Snoqualmie, Wash.; and Sue Ellen (Bill) Haas of Mitford, Ohio; three sisters-in-laws: Laurie (John) Hearn of Aptos, Calif.; Melanie Bednash of Granada Hills, Calif. and Gretchen Calderone of Canyon Country, Calif. His two nieces, Jill (John) Bathurst and Kristy Oliver and partner Jim Myers, live on Whidbey Island, and because of their proximity Tom spent a lot of time with them. We shared frequent dinners at the Oliver cabin, some very fun weenie roasts on Tom’s lot nearby in Lagoon Point and lots of salmon fishing. He has many other nieces and nephews spread across the states and the world. He was preceded in death by his parents, three brothers: Bob Miller of Kellogg; Pete Miller of Seattle and William “Bill” Miller of Kellogg and one

sister Jackie Lawrence who resided in Hoquiam, Wash. Tom is now on his next adventure and his light will continue to guide all of us who he touched. In keeping with his wishes, no service will be held. Donations may be made to Friends of Friends, PO Box 812, Langley, WA 98260, or to Habitat for Humanity of South Whidbey, Freeland, WA 98249.

robert “gunny” Armstrong, Jr.: becoming the guy others depend on By SHERRYE WYATT For the Record When Robert G. Armstrong Jr. was a child growing up in rural New York State, he and his friends used to sneak into a barn that housed a fire truck and pretend to be fireman. In that same town, whenever an emergency occurred — such as a fire — there was a community volunteer who everyone looked up to and counted on to help them out. He was a local farmer who arrived on the scene, assessed the situation and took charge. These experiences had a profound affect on Armstrong. He knew by age 10 that he wanted to be the person others counted on to lead. And he wanted to be a fireman. He became a leader first, turning down a career as a baseball player to join the U.S. Marine Corps, and rising to the rank of Gunnery Sergeant — he retains the handle “Gunny” to this day. Armstrong served in three wars, directed missions and operations, and trained and

Robert Armstrong is a volunteer firefighter with South Whidbey Fire/EMS. led as many as 250 Marines at a time. After 20 years, he retired and moved to Whidbey Island, where he’s realizing his childhood dream of becoming a firefighter. He wasn’t on the island two days before heading down to Freeland Station 31 to fill out an application. He finished his training at the academy and became a firefighter in early 2013. “It’s in my nature to go where people need help,” Armstrong said. “My Scottish grandfather believed that you had to be strong for others and be the ‘first one in and  last one out.’ That really stuck with me.” Perhaps that explains his other volunteer efforts as well. He’s a stay-at-home dad

with three young sons, so he coaches little league and cub scouts. He also taught kids in his neighborhood to work with their hands, helping them build a tree fort, go-kart and just about anything that can be built. People will also occasionally find him talking with at-risk juveniles at the county detention center in Coupeville, sharing stories, providing guidance and helping them understand that the decisions you make in life can make a difference in its outcome. “I’m teaching my own kids what my grandfather and father taught me,” Armstrong said. “It’s not just about where you live, but about your community and making it the best it can be by getting involved.”

Saturday, November 23, 2013 • the South whidbey record

Island Consort prepares for ‘juicy’ concert By CELESTE ERICKSON South Whidbey Record Island Consort is heading full force into its inaugural season with four shows and two smaller performances this year. A portion of the group will be performing this weekend for the Island Consort Chamber Series at 2 p.m. Sunday, Nov. 24 at the Whidbey Island Center for the Arts for a “juicy” performance, in the words of artistic director Sheila Weidendorf. The group features a special guest, Teo Benson, on violin. Benson began studying the violin on Whidbey Island through the Island Strings program. Music has since taken him to teach violin for 15 years and become a first violinist with the Tacoma Symphony Orchestra and director of the Halcyon Strings Music School in Ballard. Featured musicians from the consort are Weidendorf on the harpsichord and piano, Dyanne Harshman on the flute, Chris Harshman on the bassoon, Keegan Harshman on the double bass and Dianne Vars as secondo piano. Weidendorf founded the consort about a year ago after attending performances at the Whidbey

Island Music Festival. She saw the festival draw in many artists from off-island but also local community members who often played off-island. She asked herself, “Why are there so many musicians going to the mainland to perform?” It struck her deeply and she decided to get a group together solely from the island. “I decided then and there to have a music ensemble,” she said. She since has gathered people who range from professional musicians to high-level amateurs to fill the sections in the consort. The consort features more than 20 members including instrumentalists and vocalists. After spending nine months getting the group together, vocalists started rehearsing in May and instrumentalists in July. “The capacity to have more seasoned musicians next to amateurs is humbling and beautiful all the way around,” she said. “There’s more for everyone that way.” Though the entity has been in existence for more than a year, their first notes to the public were played in an October concert. Weidendorf said the sound of the group is one of the many things that make the consort distinct.

“I find that I prefer ensemble music to solo work because of the added resonance and depth to the music,” she said. She further explained that playing music individually is just a road map, but working in a group helps her explore a piece of music and dig into the depths of what’s hidden. The group is multifaceted, she said. Aside from being a group exclusively from the island, it is one of the few groups that includes instrumentalists along with vocalists and is also non-directed. Musicians will provide each other with cues in the music to guide themselves. “We have all these amazing people doing beautiful things,” she said. “I feel fortunate to play together. Weidendorf said she was excited to perform in this weekend’s performance, and even a little jittery. “I’m nervous about the harpsichord solo, I haven’t had a harpsichord solo before.” “It’s always humbling to sit before a piece of great music to have that moment of ‘aha,’ cracking the code in honor of the music itself, to bring something to community,” she said. “I’m grateful for that opportunity every day.” The chamber music series features music from Christian Friedrich Witt, Nicolas Chédeville, Gioachino Rossini, Johannes Brahms, Maurice Allard and Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart.

Tall tale of big bull elk proves true Obituary Bob Hill

By RON NEWBERRY South Whidbey Record For months, Sasha Castaneda told a tale that only seemed to raise eyebrows. A tale about spotting an enormous bull elk, sporting a “huge” rack of antlers. An elk so big and so still as Castaneda approached along a country road on North Whidbey in June that she was sure it was fake, clearly one of those lifesize plastic imitations that people place in their yards. She was convinced of that until she slowed down and got an up-close look at the animal standing in a field just off the road. “I was like, ‘Oh my God, this thing is huge,” she said. “When I looked at it, it turned. It looked at me. I kind of freaked out.” Castaneda remembers speeding off on that June morning, around 6 a.m., and heading to work with one wild story to tell. As it turned out, the tale wasn’t so wild after all. What she described was the majestic elk that has been living outside Oak Harbor near Strawberry Point for more than a year now. Initially spotted in September of 2012, the creature has appeared to take on a more permanent residence and is the only known elk living on Whidbey Island. “He’s still a guest on our beautiful island,” said Ralph Downes, enforcement officer with the Washington Department of Fish and Wildlife. Downes figured the elk would’ve moved on by now and made a return swim across Skagit Bay to the herd on the Skagit County mainland. Calling it “Elk 101,” Downes said it’s not uncommon for a bull in a growing herd to split from the group and take a few cows with him. For some reason, this bull saw greener pastures across the blue saltwater and went for a swim. “That’s an easy swim for an elk,” Downes said. “They are powerful animals and excellent swimmers. Their hair is hollow, which assists them with buoyancy.” What surprises Downes is that the elk didn’t return during the rut season in the fall.

An image from a video clip shot in October of the bull elk on North Whidbey. He said he got reports in September from locals of what they thought was the sound of an elk bugling from the island’s eastern shores. Those bugling sounds are an attempt to attract females. Even though he didn’t attract companionship of his own kind, the elk decided to stay put. For now. Downes said that residents are protective of the majestic animal and assigned it a name, “Bruiser.” Not lost among the concerns of local residents is the fear that a hunter might take a shot at the elk. Although there are specific rules for hunting deer on defined dates this time of year on Whidbey Island, no such hunting season exists for elk on the island. “According to recent history, we don’t have elk on Whidbey Island,” Downes said. “We don’t manage it. You don’t create a season to protect it from something if it doesn’t exist.” But now an elk does wander North Whidbey. It is likely that it came from the North Cascade herd found along the Skagit River. According to one 2002 report from the Department of Fish and Wildlife, that herd peaked at 1,700 in 1984 yet sharply declined to about 300 by 2002. “There’s always that worry that a

bad apple is going to try to take an easy stab,” Downes said. “That being said, there is no legal season for elk hunting on Whidbey Island and it would be unlawful for anyone to harvest it.” Russell Link, a Washington Fish and Wildlife biologist who lives in Clinton, said it’s been more than a century since elk were common on Whidbey Island. Citing passages from Richard White’s book, “Land Use, Environment and Social Change: The Shaping of Island County, Washington,” Link said that elk numbers were already declining with the introduction of the gun to native Indians and white settlers completed the destruction of the animal in the 1850s. Link said he’s never seen an elk on Whidbey Island in his 20 years as a resident. Downes, who also lives on the island, has caught a glimpse. He’s starting to wonder how long it might hang around. “As long as it’s getting the essentials, I don’t think it has any reason to move,” Downes said. “Apparently, it socializes well with the female black-tailed deer. The males move right away when it comes into the area.” Castaneda said her husband saw the elk last month and caught it on video. “Nobody believed me when I saw it,” she said. “Then he saw it. I said, ‘I told you, I’m not going crazy.’”

Dr. Kyle Fukano and Staff


Bob Hill, late of Langley, Wash., passed away on Oct. 23, 2013, at his adopted family’s home in Penn Valley, Calif. No one is sure how old Bob was, as his birth family in Langley was not big on formalities such as this. He grew up on the streets of Langley and became quite the paramour, with lady friends up and down First and Second streets. He was also not welcome in most of the shops on these streets, even though he was becoming quite proficient at keeping the streets free of curs and undesirables. In early April of 2000, Bob strolled into Violet Fields, a Shop of Simple Pleasures, on First Street and was welcomed with open arms by the new owners, Charlotte and Mike Hill. They found young Bob to be quite handsome and very clever. They offered him room and board, which he readily accepted. He now spent most of his free time at Violet Fields, where customers found him to be quite social and fun to be with. He still patrolled the streets, and was known to spend evenings at the B&B across the street with visitors, but remained loyal to Mike and Charlotte, spending most evenings in their shop. Over the years, many visitors to Langley would poke their heads in Violet Fields and ask specifically, “Where’s Bob?” and were told he was already out on the streets. Bob was also good about patrolling the Village Pizzeria for any bits of food that may have fallen on the grass in their outdoor dining facility. Bob did not want these edible enticements to attract any

pests to town. Bob liked a clean Langley. When the economy turned, and Violet Fields had to close down, Bob was offered to stay with Mike and Charlotte as they moved to Freeland. Bob chose to leave his home town and was adopted by the Hills and was made a part of their extended family. Bob enjoyed his new family and gave up his wanderlust for a stay-at-home career teaching self defense and telling tall tales about life on the streets of Langley to his new family. In late 2009, Bob and his adopted family moved down to Penn Valley, in Northern California. Everyone now enjoyed the warmer weather and a lazier outlook in retired life. September of 2013 was not a good month for either Bob nor his adopted dad, Mike. Mike had a heart attack and Bob started having blood clot issues with his legs. Mike was forced to start taking life at a slower pace, and Bob likewise, as it was getting harder and harder for him to get around. Mike’s condition continues to improve, and he was able to spend more time with his independentminded son, making sure he was able to get around. Bob’s condition improved briefly, but started going downhill quickly. Mike was holding Bob in his lap, Charlotte at his side, when Bob’s Warrior Spirit left him and went to the Other Side. As per the requests of Bob’s friends in Langley, and his adopted family, Bob’s ashes will be gently spread in Langley during the Mystery Weekend of 2014.

officer was comparable to overtime expenses from a smaller, three-deputy department. A fourth officer also would have provided enough flexibility in the department’s schedule that officers could visit South Whidbey schools as resource officers. For the past few months, since Heston retired in August, the 24-hour coverage schedule has been a bit tight for the LPD. “We make it work because

we have to,” said Officer Charlie Liggit as he patrolled the city Thursday afternoon. With only three officers on the payroll, 24-hour coverage would average 56 hours for each cop. Even with overtime, that schedule is not entirely doable. To supplement their ranks, the city has reserve officers it can call upon, though their availability can be tough to nail down. “The stars kind of have to line up,” Liggit said. The staffing issue was raised briefly during a Langley City Council budget workshop Wednesday morn-

ing. As of the end of October, Langley has paid $24,563 in overtime and $4,658 to reserve officers. Back in 2012, when the city had a full year of a three-officer rotation, the city paid $28,610 in overtime and $14,684 in reserve pay. “Having four officers doesn’t mean we wouldn’t have overtime pay and doesn’t mean we wouldn’t have reserve pay,” McCarthy said. That expense was still well below, however, the price tag of hiring an additional officer. Mayor Fred McCarthy identified the total cost of a deputy, including benefits, at about $70,000. If the police force’s budget — the largest of all city departments — was to be cut, McCarthy said it was too early to know exactly where those funds would go. Some would be saved to pay for overtime and reserve officers, but the rest could be

on this is for one year, let’s levy a tax rate that will be

divided among the other city offices. “We have a number of unmet needs in the city,” McCarthy said. Fuel and maintenance expenses caught the attention of the city council. In

2013, $5,000 more than the previous year was spent on maintenance, which Marks said was needed to fix a main-seal leak and a transmission issue with one of the department’s Chevrolet Impalas.

Councilwoman Rene Neff proposed an unorthodox idea of looking into buying a fuel-efficient car, like a gas-electric hybrid Toyota Prius, for the officers. And, as unusual as it sounds, law enforcement’s use of vehicles such as a Prius are not totally unheard of. Marks said he used one in a previous job with the state Department of Corrections for inmate transport. It came with drawbacks, however, like when an inmate was able to kick the door off its hinges; the window, said Marks, did not break. “The priority for us is something bigger and more durable,” he said. Another consideration proposed by the council was an all-weather vehicle. A fourwheel drive car or a sport utility vehicle could ensure the department’s ability to respond in a snow or ice storm, said Councilman Hal Seligson.

it accomplishing what it’s supposed to accomplish?’” Johnson said. “There’s a point at which we have done enough. I don’t want to keep spending money if we have accomplished our goal.” Johnson said land that has immediate potential for development tends to become a priority for the Conservation Futures program. However, some land needs to be left open to developers, Johnson said. “We need to balance that program,” Johnson said. Commissioner Helen Price Johnson has long championed the Conservation Futures program but will likely be out voted. According to state law, the county can borrow money to purchase “any open space land, farm and agricultural land, and timber land” to control the developmental rights. The private owner may retain the right to continue any existing open space use of the land, and to develop any other open space use, but only under Conservation Futures restrictions defined by the county. The county issues a tax levy to pay the debt service for the acquired land. The ordinance proposes reducing the levy from the $679,814 that was collected in 2013, to $439,238 for 2014. It would pay off an entire $327,308 state ecology loan and $111,930 toward a limited tax obligation loan. The levy would also include any additional revenue resulting from new construction.

You’re always the first person to take charge of all the emergencies that arise. This quality makes you a valued person at work. TAURUS

Love is very important to everyone belonging to your sign. Some friction is possible between you and your life partner, but you’ll soon sort things out. GEMINI

Show some patience with a family member. You can start getting out the Christmas decorations and making your home glitter like never before. CANCER

You have a lot of running around to do, whether it’s for work or for personal reasons. You manage to settle some sort of conflict by speaking out. LEO

If you’re in a precarious financial situation, you should succeed in finding a way out with great panache. You have plenty to say for yourself as well. VIRGO

There are lots of ideas buzzing around in your head. You start several different things without necessarily finishing them. You suggest lots of different activities to your friends. LIBRA

Stress seems to have exhausted your energy reserves. It is important for you to get some rest now and slow down the pace of your life in the future. SCORPIO

You have a pretty busy social life. You might feel like spending some time alone, but there is always someone who burrows into your isolation. SAGITTARIUS

You are in charge of an event that brings together quite a few people. At work you manage to combine business with pleasure, and your enjoyment is felt throughout the office. CAPRICORN

You leave on a last minute vacation even though you hadn’t planned to go away at all. Try to stay concentrated on some type of learning or professional development. AQUARIUS

Your feelings take centre stage in a tense situation; this moment will help you learn to let go and deepen your spiritual awareness and knowledge. PISCES

You’re not always the most patient of beings with your loved ones. It would be wise of you to break up the routine in your relationship and experience some new and exciting adventures together.
