Council says no to cuts in pay, bennies By JESSIE STENSLAND Staff reporter

The show premieres Dec. 11 and 12. Viewers will get to know all of their backstories and how rodeo influences their lives. When the show premieres, West and her husband, Brian West, will be watching it with friends in Arizona. When they get back to Whidbey Island, they are going to have a large party with their

Members of the Oak Harbor City Council won’t be cutting their own benefits nor moving forward with a process to change elected officials’ salaries. After last week’s council meeting, Oak Harbor Mayor Scott Dudley said he wasn’t surprised his cost-cutting proposals got little traction from council members. They feel “entitled,” Dudley said. The mayor was alone in his assessment. The council and audience members argued that the current policies make good sense. Attorney Chris Skinner pointed out that professional boxers and Lady Gaga make millions of dollars a year. “We shouldn’t buy into the argument that people who are public servants somehow should be paid less or are valued less,” he said. The council unanimously supported Councilman Rick Almberg’s motion that allows elected city officials to continue receiving health insurance, but precludes eligibility for a new, high-deductible health care plan. Councilman Bob Severns was absent. “Quite frankly, I think this last election said the community has confidence in the council and what we are doing,” Almberg said. Staff members will bring back a resolution to the Dec. 3 meeting. Council members also elected to take no action on Dudley’s proposals to review the salaries of elected officials. Dudley proposed to either “repopulate” the salary

Two island families forged on National Adoption Day By JANIS REID Staff reporter

The Knotts said they decided to adopt Madison, and two of their other children, as a family. “It’s something that was in my heart for a long time,” Knott said. “After a family discussion, we agreed fostering would be something we wanted to do.” That choice was bittersweet. See adoptions, A5

Four-year-old Madison wanted to know when she’d be able to join Lisa Knott’s family. “She’s been asking me for a year if she’s going to be my little girl,” Knott said. “I’m just glad now I can tell her ‘yes.’” Knott, her husband Keith, and their five other children took Madison into their home as a foster child two and a half years ago. The process

of making her a permanent part of the family has been long, but it concluded Friday at an adoption ceremony in Coupeville. Friday’s adoption proceedings, which highlighted two Island County adoptions, were scheduled in connection with National Adoption Day, which aims to raise awareness of children in foster care waiting for permanent homes. The two families join 11 other Island County homes that adopted children during 2013.

Insurer argues bones unearthing isn’t covered By JESSIE STENSLAND Staff reporter

An insurance company filed a complaint for declaratory relief in U.S. District Court this week against the City of Oak Harbor and an engineering firm. Travelers Insurance argues that it has no obligation to provide coverage to the city or Perteet, Inc. in connection with the Swimomish Tribe’s lawsuit against the two entities. The civil action is a new wrinkle in the ongoing and costly saga involving the desecration of a Native American burial ground during the Pioneer Way construction project in 2011. The Swinomish Indian Tribal Community filed a $9-million complaint for damages against the city, followed by a lawsuit in June against the city, Perteet, KBA Construction Management and Strider Construction Management. Mayor Scott Dudley said he isn’t surprised with the action by Travelers Insurance and that he doubts the outcome will have implications for other insurance companies embroiled in the case. He pointed out that the engineering firm wasn’t involved in actual dig-

ging or oversight of the project, so it may not be a central player in the lawsuit. “The tribe is going after the deep pockets,” he said. “That’s not necessarily the city, but the insurance company for the city and the insurance companies for the contractors.” The city required Perteet to obtain commercial liability insurance, which the company obtained from Travelers Insurance. The complaint on behalf of Travelers, written by Lether & Associates of Seattle, states that the insurance covered “bodily injury” and “property damage” and questions whether the tribe’s alleged damages fall under those categories. The complaint also says the insurance excludes coverage for liability arising out of failure to render “professional services,” which may refer to the city’s failure to hire an archaeologist when digging near a known burial site. In addition, Travelers’ claim questions whether the city provided the insurance company with prompt notice of the “occurrence.” The complaint requests the court declare that neither Perteet nor the city have indemnity coverage through Travelers for the lawsuit. It also seeks attorney fees and costs.

Clinton woman held on $50,000 bail By JESSIE STENSLAND Staff reporter

A Clinton woman is facing charges in connection with a series of crimes she allegedly committed on South Whidbey Nov. 9 while under the influence of drugs, court documents indicate. Karlyn J. Romain, 39, was charged in Island County Superior Court Nov. 13 with attempting to elude, harassment (threats to kill), reckless driving, hit and run, fourth-degree assault, malicious mischief in the third degree, DUI and resisting arrest. A judge ordered Romain held Nov. 12 in lieu of $50,000 bail. Deputy Sheriff Darren Crownover was one of several officers to respond to the incidents that began in the morning with reports of a white Lincoln Navigator being driven recklessly in the Freeland area. About an hour later, a caller reported that a white SUV was involved in a hitand-run accident on State Highway 525 at Midvale

Divorce

Road. A few hours later, several callers reported that the vehicle went through a red light at a high rate of speed on Highway 525 at Maxwelton Road. A caller said the driver was parked at Ken’s Korner and the driver was smoking and drinking something. Shortly afterward, the deputies received reports that the driver, later identified as Romain, was at the Langley Post Office. Romain allegedly assaulted a postal employee, yelled at customers and damaged another car with her car door, Crownover wrote in his report. The deputies responded to the post office, but Romain sped away. Crownover pursued her briefly on Camano Avenue, but broke off because she was driving more than 80

mph while pedestrians were in the area. Crownover drove to her Clinton home and saw her run into the house. He went into the house after her; it took three officers to secure her in handcuffs while she was resisting, the report states. Romain threatened to kill a deputy on the way to jail, the report states. She was “out of control” at the jail and was placed in the “behavior modification module,” Crownover wrote. Romain allegedly admitted that she committed a hit-and-run and said “she would buy the person another vehicle,” the deputy wrote. She said she was driving erratically because a friend had died. Romain allegedly tried to bite the arm of a phlebotomist during a blood draw at Whidbey General Hospital.

Court upholds child rape conviction By JESSIE STENSLAND Staff reporter

An Oak Harbor man convicted in the rape and assault of a 21-month-old child lost on appeal. In an unpublished opinion dated Nov. 18, the State Court of Appeals affirmed Ryan A. Stephenson’s conviction for first-degree rape and assault of the child in the first degree. Senior Deputy Prosecutor Eric Ohme was happy with the ruling. He handled the case against Stephenson, 28, in a 2012 trial so disturbing that jurors were offered mental health counseling afterward. “I am pleased that because the Court of Appeals upheld the rulings of the trial court,” he said, “that the victim can rest easier knowing that there is very little chance Mr. Stephenson will ever be able to victimize her, or anyone else, again.”

In addition, Stephenson submitted a hand-written appeal in which he offered yet another version of events. He wrote that he forced the little girl into a freezer and that, somehow, caused her penetration injuries. The Appeals Court judges, however, agreed with the prosecution that the judge did not err. In addition, the judges ruled that Stephenson’s new assertion rest on matters outside the record and cannot be addressed in the appeal. Stephenson can file a motion for reconsideration or can seek review by the state Supreme Court.

Judge Alan Hancock sentenced Stephenson to an exceptional sentence of 60 years to life last year. In May 2011, Stephenson raped his girlfriend’s little girl so savagely that she had to undergo emergency surgery. He also forced her into a backpack and kicked her repeatedly. Stephenson’s appeals attorneys argued that the trial judge erred by denying a request to instruct the jury on a lesser-degree assault offense and that a handwritten notation on the sentencing document would prohibit him from receiving early release credits.

Oak Harbor merchants ready for Small Biz Saturday shoppers By SARA HANSEN Staff Reporter

When looking for holiday gifts this weekend, shoppers can stay close to home. Small Business Saturday follows the traditional shopping day of Black Friday and island residents are encouraged to participate. “Everyone should turn out and support small businesses,” said Kathy Reed, Oak Harbor Chamber of Commerce executive director. In 2012, Small Business Saturday shoppers spent $5.5 billion with independent merchants nationwide, according to the National Federation of Independent Business. The event is great because it helps people remember to shop small businesses, said Margaret Livermore, Downtown Merchants Association president. “Go visit them and give them a chance,” she said. “It costs money to do business here,” said Heather Carder, The Noble Horse owner, “and the money spent goes to the community.” From employing residents to the taxes that help fund

programs and services in the town, shopping locally benefits everyone, Carder said. Plus, small businesses add character to the town. “Every business owner has a story and it’s fascinating,” Carder said. Carder’s passion is horses, which inspired her to open up The Noble Horse. The store is an equine style boutique. She loves the equestrian look and many residents on the island are involved with the horse industry. To encourage local shopping this year, the Oak Harbor Chamber of Commerce has a couple programs in place. One is The Great Wish List Assist. Participants fill out a wish list and leave it at the store. Then, gift givers can go request that list, so they can make sure they get that certain someone exactly what they want for the holidays. Another is the Shop Local Campaign. For those who shop in the 98277 area code, or with chamber members, the can save receipts dated between Nov. 29 through Dec. 31. Then they can take them to the chamber and, for every $50 spent with a merchant in the area, they receive a ticket to win the Holiday Gift Tree. The drawing is Jan. 16 at the Oak Harbor Elks Lodge.

Man, 21, accused of injuring boy, 3, who suffered ruptured spleen By JESSIE STENSLAND Staff reporter

A Navy man is charged with assaulting a 3-year-old child and causing a lifethreatening internal injury, court documents state. The suspect is also being investigated in connection with an infant’s injuries. The baby sustained a depressed skull fracture, according to the Island County Prosecutor’s Office. Jason L. Gaines, 21, of Oak Harbor, was arrested Nov. 8 by Oak Harbor police for allegedly assaulting his stepson. Gaines pleaded not guilty in Island County Superior Court Nov. 18 to assault of a child in the first degree, a domestic violence crime. The 3-year-old boy was transported to Children’s Hospital in Seattle Nov. 5

after being diagnosed at the Navy hospital with possible appendicitis. Doctors, however, found that the boy suffered from a ruptured spleen. The force needed to cause the injury was equivalent to the “force often seen resulting from a body impacting a

steering column in a motor vehicle accident,” Detective Manuel Silveira wrote in a report on the incident. The boy told a doctor that his “daddy” hurt him. The child later told investigators his dad hit him on the “tummy” when his mother was at work, the detective wrote.

On Nov. 12, Judge Alan Hancock released Gaines on his own recognizance, allowing him to live in Navy barracks. He also allowed Gaines contact with the alleged victim, in accordance with the outcome of an earlier shelter care hearing. During the shelter care

hearing, Gaines said he was roughhousing with the child, but didn’t know if that caused the injury. Senior Deputy Prosecutor Eric Ohme made a motion to amend the conditions of release to prohibit Gaines from contacting either the 3-year-old boy or 5-month-old

baby. The baby lives in the same household. The baby underwent a CT scan and was diagnosed with a skull fracture. During a Nov. 18 hearing, Judge Vickie Churchill ordered Gaines not to have contact with either child.

Coupeville schools putting levy requests on February ballot By Nathan Whalen Staff Reporter

Central Whidbey voters will be asked early next year whether to continue local funding for Coupeville schools. The Coupeville School Board last week approved sending two levies that will bring in millions of dollars to the district. Voters will consider the two replacement levies during a special election set for Feb. 12. “We want to stress that this is a replacement levy,” board President Kathleen Anderson said “It’s the same

as what ran four years ago.” The maintenance and operations levy will bring in $2.24 million a year for the next four years, which is a significant portion of the school district’s roughly $10 million budget. If approved, property owners would pay approximately $1.15 per $1,000 assessed property value. The technology levy would bring in $300,000 a year for the next four years. It would pay for continued technology purchases, training and upgrades. Voters first approved the tech levy four years ago.

Since then, school leaders used the levy dollars to purchase more than 700 electronic devices, an Internetbased phone system and training for staff. “We’ve come a long ways in the last four years and we want to continue to move forward,” said schools

Superintendent Jim Shank. Anderson said the state doesn’t provide much support for technology in schools. “The state does not recognize technology as basic education,” he said. Both levy proposals are similar to the ones school

officials presented to voters four years ago. They both must be approved by a simple majority. Shank said he is looking for names of potential candidates to lead a levy committee tasked with promoting the two levies to Central Whidbey voters.

health-care benefits to council members and mayors. Providing health-care benefits to council members will cost the city $38,000 this year. In addition, it will cost $15,000 for the mayor’s health insurance. The mayor’s salary is

Of the 26 cities in Oak Harbor’s “population class,” only three cities compensate the mayor at a higher level; nine of the cities compensate council members at a higher level than Oak Harbor does, according to the city’s agenda document. If value of health-care benefits are factored in, documents show Oak Harbor council members who enroll in the city’s health insurance are among the most highly compensated when compared to similar-sized cities.

adoptions CONTINUED FROM A1 “It’s been one of the hardest things we have ever done, but one of the best,” Knott said. Island County Superior Court Judge Alan Hancock, who presided over the adoptions, said there are approximately 400,000 children in the United States seeking permanent homes. He said that 48 million families have considered adoption or foster care, a far greater number than those approaching private adoption agencies. While the adoption process has been streamlined in recent years, Washington state still struggles to find enough foster and adop-

www.WhiDBEYNEWSTIMES.com

tive parents. Hancock concluded his comments Friday with a plea: “We need foster parents in this country. “The system is far better than it was. We fight the good fight. But to the extent that you can, ask others to be a part of it,” he said. Myron Egbers, a foster home licenser with the state Department of Social and Health Services, said she agrees that, while the process has been streamlined, the requirements continue to get more stringent which may make it more difficult for some families to get certified. “A lot of families who want to do it, the process is a difficult one to get through,” Hancock said. “With our focus on child safety, it can be hard for parents to get certified.”

Page A5

For that reason, he said, the need for good, willing foster parents is great. Carole Stuart and her husband, David, adopted their 10-year-old granddaughter, Jasmine, during Friday’s proceedings. Stuart said the change was difficult in some ways for Jasmine, but that they are grateful for the support of teachers and counselors who have helped her through the process. “She has transitioned through a tough time,” Stuart said. “But she is a wonderful girl. She just needed a place to blossom.” Christina Urtasun, a foster care and adoption liaison for the Fostering Together Program, said it’s common for grandparents to step in and take over the care of grandchildren when the parents are unable, or unwilling, to provide for them.

Urtasun adopted her now 11-year-old daughter Anna eight years ago on National Adoption Day. Because Urtasun went through the process, she offers insight to help other prospective adoptive parents. “I feel like I understand the process and can relate to the frustrations and can celebrate the successes,” she said. “It can be intimidating.” “There are a lot of myths. I’m here to ease the uncertainty.” A parenting orientation class is set 4:307:30 p.m. Wednesday, Dec. 11, at the state Department of Social and Health Services Oak Harbor office, 275 Pioneer Way, No. 310. For information about adopting, visit www. nationaladoptionday.org.

West CONTINUED FROM A1 friends and family. “I’m excited with the anticipation of it,” she said. “I haven’t seen anything but the teasers.” The filming ended midJuly, so both have been in a business as usual routine since then. Brian West also participates in rodeos and competes in tie-down roping. He grew up around the lifestyle. “I don’t know when I learned to rope, I just always have,” he said. Barbra West competed from 2003-2010 in barrel racing. During that time she became the 2009 Dodge National Circuit Finals Rodeo Champion, a Columbia River Circuit Final Champion and broke a world record for her 16.735 second timed run in 2007 at the Barrel Racers 4D Final 1D Championship. All titles she won with her horse Scottie Too Hottie, who she refers to as Scottie. She took a break from competing and retired Scottie. He had a tendon injury so they treated him with stem cell therapy so he could retire without any pain. “He was a great horse,” she said. “Great horses only come around once in a great while.” Scottie, who is now 20 years old, happily spends his days at their property. During her break from competition, she kept busy by training horses, and offering private training. Occasionally she and her husband participate at different group clinics, such as the Whidbey Wranglers. “I love trying to figure out what the horse and rider and need,” she said. “I like the problem solving and I enjoy it.” After a while the itch to compete came back to her. But to begin, a new team of horses would have to be trained. One of the first steps is seasoning the horse. Besides working with them at home, they also have to enter rodeos to show them different

arenas. “It takes them a while to show them what to do and help them get brave,” she said. “It’s really loud and there’s a lot of energy.” Every horse is different when adapting to the competitive environment, she said. “It’s all about knowing your horses,” she said. “They were at the right stage in their training and it was time to go out there and show them. I like training and I’m a strong competitor. That’s where I want to stay, that’s what I want to do.” She has a handful of horses she’s trained for competition and one she is excited about is Fuego, who she got from one of her best friends, Kristin Weaver-Brown. “She called me up and said,’I just had Scottie’s double,’” she said. And the 2-year-old Fuego does look like Scottie. He became part of the horse team she trains on a regular basis. “When you ride him, you can feel it and feel that talent,” she said. “You just know.” Weaver-Brown is also a top trainer and a rodeo veteran. “You need to have those people who show you how to win,” she said. Her husband is happy to see her competing again. He said she missed it and this opportunity helped her reach that goal. She was on the fence about doing the show, but he insisted she try it out. “Trying and failing is worse than not trying,” he said. He also knew she’d be kicking herself for not giving it a go. “He knew I’d be happier doing it,” she said. As for what happens after the show airs, both are excited for the future. “We’ll wait and see where it goes from here,” he said. If the series takes off, West said she hopes her husband can be a part of it. “I hope he can be more involved. I miss him when he’s at home or at a different rodeo,” she said.

IN OUR OPINION

We have much to be grateful for on this Thanksgiving Each year, as individuals, many of us gather with friends and loved ones to give thanks for the incredible blessings in our lives. As a community newspaper, the Whidbey News-Times has much to be grateful for. First and foremost, we are grateful to exist in a free society, one in which the First Amendment protects everyone’s right to free speech. The First Amendment is a simply constructed sentence, beautiful in its succinctness, masterful in the great power it affords each and every American: “Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion, or prohibiting the free exercise thereof; or abridging the freedom of speech, or of the press; or the right of the people peaceably to assemble, and to petition the government for a redress of grievances.” Free speech is not a right enjoyed in all countries. American blood has been shed to preserve it. Blood is still being spilled around the globe by those in search of it. That is one reason we respect to those who write letters to the editor, express their opinions and sign their names. They are exercising the greatest of rights. Another right not allowed in some countries is the ability to vote. In the United States, we enjoy a system that allows us to collectively choose who represents us. We hire them to work for us, fire them if we believe they aren’t doing the job properly. For the right to vote, we are grateful. It’s our hope that those Americans who are apathetic about voting will some morning wake up and realize what an incredible privilege it is to cast a ballot. We are also grateful to live in a society in which people can agree, disagree or agree to disagree, where even ugly speech is rightfully protected under our Constitution. As a community newspaper, we realize we have an awesome responsibility and that we are held to a high standard. It’s a given that not everyone will like what appears on these pages, nor is it expected everyone will — especially the Opinion page. Wonderfully, in the end, we are all one community, working together to build a better future for those who will follow in our footsteps. To all of our readers, advertisers and their friends and families, we wish a very happy Thanksgiving.

Letters to the editor OLF

unaccountable federal government. Bill Schoonover

Oak Harbor Smith Island not Congress a replacement Editor, We the people Vincent Hagel is to be commended for his “out need to wake up

of the box” thinking about relocating the OLF to Smith Island in his Oct. 23 letter. There is, however, one teensy-weensy problem. That is, Smith Island is part of the San Juan Islands National Wildlife Refuge. By the time the current administration, and the following ones could get the island’s status changed, complicated by years of environmental studies, jets would be obsolete and Mr. Satan would be raising the thermostat in his abode. Never underestimate the incompetency, inefficiency and downright stupid decisions made by those in our

Editor, I find it interesting, or should I say frightening, that anyone who is a responsible citizen of this great country could say, “Congress is doing fine.” Really? The last time I checked, this is supposed to be a government of the people, by the people and for the people. It seems to me the biggest enemy of the American people today is the United States Congress. Though there are some genuinely good people elected to positions in Congress,

people who still believe in this country’s original constitution and its intent, mostly what I see today is an extremely divided group of mindless “ideologs” who believe they know what is better for us than we do. I’ll make my own decisions and take responsibility for them. It is not just this Congress or the current president, though Barack Obama is particularly incompetent and divisive, it is decades of politics, “political correctness,” and the “it’s not my fault” attitude that are destroying the fiber of this country. We, the people, have let our so-called representatives run wild and, as a result, what we have today is a blatant battle for power between the two major “political parties” who will do or say anything to remain in their positions. They are disgustingly open about what they want, that being your vote in return for

their support of your special interest group or your so called entitlement. We let them mortgage our country to the tune of over $17 trillion and counting and, more recently, were brutally attacked domestically more than I care to remember in my 59 years of life. Remember 9/11? To sum this up, we are “asleep at the switch,” and it’s only going to get worse unless we all start paying attention to what our representatives are doing in our name. Politics and political parties should be abolished. Clearly, government does not function in the presence of either. We can make our own choices about what size soft drink we should have or which health plan we want, if any. Robert Stallone Freeland

Americans need to be thankful for what we have guest column

By don brunell

It is human nature to take things for granted. When you’ve always had something, when it’s been around your entire life, it’s only natural to overlook it, to think it will always be here. But that’s not the case, and this time of year reminds us to be appreciative of what we have. I’m not talking about creature comforts like plentiful electricity, clean water, electronic gadgets or the family car. I’m talking about the freedom and opportunity we Americans take for granted. My epiphany came during the Cold War when my military unit was sent to the Czech border. Czechoslovakia was then part of the Communist Bloc, and its government and military were under the thumb of Soviet leaders in Moscow. There was a one-mile kill zone separating West Germany and Czechoslovakia. All trains crossing the border into West Germany would slowly move over pits of scalding water sprayed onto the undersides of passing trains to kill any Czechs who were clinging to the train’s undercarriage in an attempt to escape.

I always wondered how any government could kill its own citizens just because they were seeking an opportunity for a better life someplace else. It suddenly occurred to me that we, in the United States, are spoiled, and we really don’t understand the value of our freedoms. For the last three years, I’ve had the good fortune to work with high school students and teachers in Poland. Washington business leaders, educators and students travel to places like Gdansk where Polish students and teachers are eager to emulate America’s free enterprise system. They remember what it was like to live without it. After World War II, Poland became part of the Warsaw Pact, and its government was dominated by the Communist Party in Moscow, which dictated production and controlled the markets. If you wanted a home or apartment, bureaucrats decided what it would look like and where it would be built. While government and party leaders had plenty to eat, nice homes, new cars and warm clothing, the rest of the people barely scraped by. A visit today to the Solidarity Museum in Gdansk is a stark reminder of the food, clothing and housing shortages that ravaged Poland and its people. One powerful display is simply a section of empty grocery store shelves. The numbing repression and shortages led to the Solidarity

movement, which began in Gdansk, home to one of the world’s largest shipyards. Many remember a short, wiry shipyard electrician named Lech Walesa, who scaled the shipyard fence and issued 21 demands to Polish Communists for better pay, better working conditions and more food. Pope John Paul II and President Ronald Reagan fueled the fires, and in the early years, the United States secretly provided significant financial support to Solidarity. That support has not been forgotten in Poland. Today, Polish leaders want their teachers and students to enjoy the values of an economic system where consumers decide which goods and services thrive in the marketplace. For that, those leaders look to America. We Americans have been blessed with freedom and abundance. Even in tough economic times, we have choices and opportunities others only dream of, which is why millions of immigrants from around the globe come here. Yet, we often take it all for granted. When we gather around the dinner table on Thanksgiving, we should give thanks for what we have and pray that we never go through what the Polish people endured before they earned their freedom 23 years ago.

Obituaries

Spiller

Dee Ann E. Spiller

Dee Ann Elizabeth Spiller was born Nov. 8, 1954, in Bremerton, Wash. as Dee Ann E. Worth. As a “Navy brat,” she traveled the world with her mother Bettie and step-father Buddy Green, seeing places such as Germany, Morocco and various duty stations in the U.S. She graduated from Adak High School in Adak, Alaska, and attended some courses

at the University of Alaska and Skagit Valley College. With her marriage in February of 1973, she resumed her role as a world traveler by marrying Robert Spiller, an active duty Navy man. She again bounced around to more than eight duty stations in the U.S., totaling 15 household moves in over 30 years. In the process, she raised son Christopher Dale, born in 1982 at the Patuxent River Naval Air Station in Maryland, and kept husband Bob on track. Chris is currently employed as a Lab Scientist at St. Joseph’s Hospital in Bellingham, and Bob is retired from the Navy and is now working full time at Tesoro Refinery in Anacortes. Dee was employed out of the house for many years doing various jobs, including electronic assembler, retail food service, child-care and running a very successful photo lab.

Her true love was photography and she started Dee’s Photography in 2002. She loved photographing eagles. Dee died of liver disease Nov. 14, 2013, at the University of Washington Medical Center in Seattle at the age of 59. She is survived by her husband Bob, son Chris, sister and brother-in-law Pat and Elmer Partridge, her cat Gizmo and four half-brothers. She was a caring wife, loving mother and the most giving person on the planet. She will be missed terribly. God bless her. Services for Dee are pending. Funeral arrangements were entrusted to Wallin Funeral Home & Cremation, LLC. Friends and family are encouraged to share memories and offer condolences on their website at www.wall infuneralhome.com.

Elaine began working as a dispatcher for the Island County Sheriff’s Office in 1975 and soon became a deputy and detective. She retired from the sher-

iff’s office in 1995. Her love and respect for the game of golf was always a point of conversation. Elaine was a member of the VFW Ladies Auxiliary, American Legion Ladies Auxiliary, and Ladies Golf League at the Gallery Golf Course and was involved with many other community activities. Elaine leaves her husband of 20 years, Steve Young; sister Kathleen Barnett; sons and wives, Scott, Steven and Linette, Samuel and Siobhan and Stewart and Jana.

according to a news release from U.S. Soccer. The camp, under the direction of coach April Kater, is the last of three for the U-14 girls national team this year. Johnston said, “I’m really excited. It has always been a goal of mine.” Johnston was a member of the all-Washington state team and was invited to quarterly camps at the University of Washington for regional standouts. She also attended a preliminary U.S. Soccer camp in South Carolina last summer. This process led to her selection for the national team camp. For the past year Johnston, a forward, played for Crossfire out of Redmond; previously she competed for the Northwest Nationals based in Lynnwood. Crossfire teammates Anna Smith of Issaquah and Kelsey Turnbow of Liberty Lake will join Johnston at Carson. She was unable to compete for Oak Harbor High School this fall because of an injury but plans to play for the Wildcats in the future.

Oldest living Oak Harbor High grad turns 100 By RON NEWBERRY Staff reporter

Ed Adamson approached his mother with a sheepish grin. It was the sort of loving smile from a son seeking

approval from his mother. Even though the son is 80 years old. “Are you behaving?” Reka Adamson asked her oldest boy. Ed Adamson figured he

was safe regardless of his answer. “She can’t school me much anymore,” he said, beaming. Reka Adamson doesn’t move around as well as she used to and has needed a

walker to assist her in recent years; however, the smile is still bright and her wit still sharp. Her mind holds nearly a century of memories of Whidbey Island. She moved

to North Whidbey at the age of 3 and on Nov. 6 turned 100. She remembers walking across logs on the water in Oak Harbor as a grade schooler and See reka, A12

Adamson’s era consisted of days chasing turkeys, chickens and children on the family’s 60-acre farm near Miller and Balda roads. Formerly Reka Van Wieringen, she married her high school sweetheart, Edwin Adamson, and they raised four children on the farm. Edwin Adamson was active as a longtime Oak Harbor school board member and retired as an egg farmer before selling much of their farmland and retiring with his wife to a beachhouse in Waldport, Ore. After her husband passed in 1999, Reka moved back to the Oak Harbor property that remained in the family. She lives just a short distance from son Ed Adamson and daughter Linda Boatman.

Reka Adamson, from the class of 1931, is believed to the oldest living Oak Harbor graduate. All four of her children graduated from the high school.

Here come the holidays! Winter is quickly approaching and the holidays are in full swing. It’s so fun to see all of the Christmas decorations and lights gracing our community. Young and old will be participating in wonderful musical presentations to add to the enjoyment of the season.

It is a time of giving and receiving gifts. Sometimes, it is difficult to think of that perfect item for friends and family. Emerson wrote, “The greatest gift is a portion of thyself”. In all of our hurried schedules, we sometimes rush through the season filling our lives with busyness. Wouldn’t it be great if we would give the gift of time to others? Even a smile, a kind word or just sharing a cup of coffee can be a gift to those you care about.

May the joy of the season abound in your hearts throughout the -Heidi Kuzina, Community Outreach Coordinator year ahead.

Thanksgiving for a family of 4,000 Annual Community Harvest dinner a tribute to founder By RON NEWBERRY

C Staff reporter

oordinating a feast that serves an entire community is no small task. Jack Stiltz tackles that role every Thanksgiving in Oak Harbor with the support of a dedicated core group of organizers and an army of volunteers. And he said he still draws inspiration from another man he called his best friend. Keith Bartlett is still heavy on his mind. “I always think about him, especially this time of year,” Stiltz said. “My heart is still with him.” It was nine years ago that Stiltz walked into the kitchen of Bartlett’s Oak Harbor restaurant to discover him dead from a heart attack. It was only hours earlier, in the wee hours of Thanksgiving morning, that the two were socializing and going over details of the North Whidbey Community Harvest. Stiltz remembers the panic on Bartlett’s face when he realized he’d forgotten to cook the giblets for the event. “He went in there real, real early in the morning to cook those,” Stiltz said. “He was panicked about that. That’s what kind of got him.” “There was a lot of stress on us,” Stiltz said, “especially him and I.” Stiltz makes it a point each year to reflect on his best friend’s devotion to the community before meals are served at the North Whidbey Community Harvest, which gets underway for the 12th year at 11 a.m. Thanksgiving Day at the Oak Harbor Elks Lodge. Bringing together the people of Oak Harbor for a free full-course meal served on fine linen tablecloths with silverware and real plates on Thanksgiving Day was Bartlett’s vision. It was his way of thanking the community for its business. Bartlett was owner of the former Pot Belly Deli on State Highway 20. The idea was so heartfelt, and event so well received, that it’s continued to blossom. The desire to help became contagious. “It’s really a community effort,” said T.J. Fisher, which part of the event’s coordinating team along with her husband Scott. “It was envisioned by a very small group of very dedicated men with the support of dedicated women. That was their vision. It has continued to thrive and reach out to more and more people simply because so many people in the community are eager to participate.” Stiltz, owner of Bay Printing, remembers sitting with Bartlett when the idea was conceived. They needed a chef to pull it off, and soon spoke to Scott Fraser, owner of Frasers Gourmet Hideway, to gauge his interest. Fraser liked the idea and wanted to help. Scott and T.J. Fisher also got involved from the start. “I like the fact that Thanksgiving is a day

To give or receive Those interested in requesting a delivery may call 360-240-9338 in advance or call the Elks Lodge on Thanksgiving Day. Those who wanting to make a donation toward the event may do so by dropping one off to Stiltz at Bay Printing on Barrington Avenue, or mailing it to: North Whidbey Community Harvest, Bay Printing, 1131 S.E. Ely St., Oak Harbor, WA 98277. Checks should be made out to “Community Harvest.”

of giving rather than receiving,” said Scott Fisher, who works as a maintenance contractor at Whidbey Island Naval Air Station after retiring from the Navy. “I’ve always been a strong believer of that.” The first event drew 500-700 people, according to Stiltz, but has since grown considerably. “We’re pushing 4,000,” he said. Word eventually got out that the event was for all-comers — an opportunity for people in the community to gather and interact. “It could be a lonely senior like an elderly widow or a young serviceman who doesn’t know anybody here,” T.J. Fisher said. “To see them open up and blossom from that day’s attention, to leave not just with a warm Thanksgiving meal, but also leftovers. … It’s great fun to attend and it’s great fun to participate.” About a dozen people make up the North Whidbey Community Harvest’s organizing team, aided by an additional 300-plus volunteers. While Fraser and his restaurant team han-

dle kitchen duties and much of the cooking, there’s a separate team that prepares turkeys. Scott Fisher and Jim Croft cook turkeys in deep fryers, while Roger Anglum smokes turkeys and hams. Other coordinators are K.C. and Skip Pohtilla, Carol Croft, Dale Sandri, Wayne Locke, Marty Malloy, Theresa Reed and Tim Hassler. The large volunteer workforce, along with the support of businesses, organizations and individuals, keeps the community event going, Skip Pohtilla said. That assistance includes the Oak Harbor Fire Department, which helps with cleanup, and Elks Lodge, which donates use of its facility. The Whidbey Cruzers vintage car club

handles delivery of meals to those unable to attend in person. The event costs about $17,000, all coming from donations, though donations are not required to attend. Stiltz is sure that Bartlett would be pleased with how the North Whidbey Community Harvest has grown and evolved into an anticipated gathering of the community. It was important to Stiltz to continue the event in his friend’s honor. He misses Bartlett, their trips to Canada and skiing adventures. “We were like family,” he said. Thanksgiving dinner for North Whidbey Community Harvest will be served 11 a.m.-4 p.m.
