South Whidbey burglaries rise 39 percent in two years

The end of an era “He’s a great guy to have in your corner.” Curt Gordon, former parks commissioner

By JUSTIN BURNETT South Whidbey Record On a late Monday evening, Carolyn Tamler and her husband came home after a few days off-island to a sight every vacationer dreads — they returned to a house that had been burglarized. Strangers had been in their home. They had entered without permission, riffled through their dressers and made off with about $10,000 worth of their belongings. But while many have asked her since if she feels “violated” or unsafe in her home, the Freeland community blogger responds with a smile and a shrug. The thieves got away with some jewelry and expensive watches, yes, but an act of goodwill by a total stranger resulted in the recovery of something far more precious: her wedding photos. “I can go out and buy another pearl necklace,” she said. Losing the photos, however, would have been heartbreaking. They were found, along with some other items, along the side of Goss Lake Road by a man out for an early morning stroll. The thief had apparently discarded them as worthless the day before. Tamler marvels at how they were stumbled upon just one day after the burglary. Had they been found much later, they almost certainly would have been ruined by Whidbey’s wet winter weather, she said. Given the choice, Tamler said she’d take the pictures or the return of her cat, that SEE BURGLARIES, A13

What kind of mayor does Langley want? By BEN WATANABE South Whidbey Record

He is one of the longest-tenured elected officials in the parks district’s history, if not South Whidbey and Island County history. The runner-up in terms of years served is Curt Gordon, now a Port of South Whidbey commissioner, who served 20 years on the parks board. “He and I were side-by-side building a lot of the things that they’re doing now,” Gordon said of Porter. “I watched Jim take that stalwart position and continue on down the line. He had this overwhelming sense of responsibility and sense of community spirit. He just wasn’t willing to leave. He knew there was more to do.” Porter’s family has lived on Whidbey Island since the late 1850s. He recalled growing up on South Whidbey, playing at the scattered ballfields around the area in Midvale and Maxwelton. When momentum built toward founding a tax-funded park district — back then the vision was for a single property — Porter joined the cause. South Whidbey

Langley city leaders are poised to finalize and approve the 2014 budget Monday, including Mayor Fred McCarthy’s $53,000 salary. The mayor’s pay, once divisive in the 1,050-resident Village by the Sea, has raised the issue of what kind of mayor does Langley want and need. Given the city council’s appointment of McCarthy in February and his subsequent unopposed election in November, it would seem the city’s residents approve of a full-time mayor loaded with credentials. McCarthy spent most of his career in education before retiring as a doctorate-level superintendent of the South Whidbey School District in 2011. “I’m finding that I’m probably putting in, conservatively, 50 to 70 hours a week, because there’s a lot that’s done on-site and a lot that’s done off-site to keep everything moving,” McCarthy said. After former mayor Larry Kwarsick resigned in early 2012, three Langley City Council members appointed McCarthy as the interim mayor. Councilmen Hal Seligson and Bruce Allen sought appointment to the mayor’s office and were

Jim Porter will step down Tuesday, Dec. 17 after 30 years on the board of commissioners for the South Whidbey Parks & Recreation District. He was a founding member in 1983 when the levy-funded district was established with a 40-acre donation from the Waterman family, property now used as South Whidbey Community Park. The district now manages 420 acres across South Whidbey.

Porter reflects on 30 years as parks leader By BEN WATANABE South Whidbey Record Back when Jim Porter helped launch and lead the South Whidbey Parks and Recreation District, cassettes were still the preferred mobile medium for music, Ronald Reagan was president, and “Star Wars Return of the Jedi” first played for theater audiences. Now, 30 years later, Porter will attend his final parks commissioners meeting Dec. 17, the capstone to a long career in public service. “It’s a good, round year,” the 67-year-old Porter said of his decision to leave the parks board. “We can get some young, new blood, new thinking in here.” In 1983 when a group of volunteers worked diligently to found the parks district, the guiding goal was a community center with nearby ballfields. Today, that remains a goal parks leaders strive toward with renewed discussion of an aquatic and community center on South Whidbey. “If there’s anything that was unfulfilled, it’s that,” Porter said.

County cited for unlawful labor practices By JESSIE STENSLAND South Whidbey Record A hearing examiner with the state Public Employment Relations Commission ruled this week that Island County officials violated state law by withholding budget documents and other records sought by the deputy sheriff’s labor union. The county was ordered to produce the records and was cited with an “unfair labor practice” finding, according to a statement from guild attorney Jim Cline. Deputy Dar ren Crownover, the guild president, said county officials will have to admit the unfair labor practice in a statement read into the record during a county commissioners hearing and post statements in the workplace also admitting to the violation. The ruling represents yet another chapter in the increasingly bitter contract negotiations between the deputies and the county.

the sheriff’s office will get four new deputies and one corrections deputy. In August, the commissioners reported that the reserve fund was at $9 million, which is 41 percent of the county’s $22-million operating budget. Revenues outpaced expenditures by $1.6 million in 2011, $1.9 million in 2012 and this year’s projection is for a minimum of $1.5 million. Johnson never claimed anyone was hiding the information about the reserve fund, but said she just didn’t ask the right questions. She said she hopes to work on how budget information is presented in the future, so that the fund balance and reserves are clearer.

There was nothing to suggest it was intentionally set.” Fire district officials did not have an estimated cost of the damage. According to the Island County Assessor’s online database, the property owned by Thomas Zebroski is valued at $453,473. Zebroski’s phone number is not listed. When firefighters arrived, the single story, two-bedroom home was reportedly 75 percent engulfed in flames. Palmer noted the location of the home and where the fire started made it difficult for someone to notice until the blaze spread through the house and made its way to the seaside. “Had there been a chance to save the house, we would have saved the house,” Palmer said. “When it’s 75 percent engulfed when we get there, it’s a degree of loss.” Nearby homes, within a few yards of the flames, were reportedly undamaged. The house’s carport was charred, while the detached garage did not have any signs of scorching.

Preliminary drilling results show good news for Freeland wells By JUSTIN BURNETT South Whidbey Record

The drilling for four groundwater monitoring wells wrapped up in Freeland last week and soil samples taken along the way appear to indicate good news. According to Paul Grabau, principal hydrogeologist with Farallon Consulting, evidence of petroleum hydrocarbon vapors were found only in the first well in the sea-level aquifer. The other three wells dug were clear, he said. “It does look pretty good,” Grabau said. It’s too soon to start celebrating, however,

as those were just preliminary results from soil samples. Testing of actual groundwater will begin next week and the information gleaned there will be most revealing. “That will tell us what we really need to know,” Grabau said. Farallon Consulting is working on behalf of Marty Winn, the former owner of Whidbey Marine and Auto Supply on Main Street. The gas station, which has since closed, reported a leak of up to 7,000 gallons of gasoline from an underground fuel tank in 2005. Winn has participated in a voluntary cleanup program for years, but the fuel was found

bayview robber still at large By JUSTIN BURNETT South Whidbey Record The masked gunman who robbed a Bayview gas station last week is still at large, island police have confirmed. According to Detective Ed Wallace with the Island County Sheriff’s Office, the department has investigated plenty of leads but none had led to an arrest as of Wednesday afternoon. Wallace said at the time, however, that he was still looking into more leads and is hoping for continued support from the community. “I’ve got four or five good leads,” Wallace said. “Please keep the tips coming because

we’re looking into every single one.” At about 8:40 p.m. Wednesday, Dec. 4, a man wearing a black mask and camouflage clothing stormed the Valero gas station and robbed the single clerk with a pump-action shotgun. The robber is believed to be a Caucasian male, between 5 feet, 10 inches and 6 feet tall. Although initially described as thin, detectives now say he made be of moderate build. Anyone with any information on the robbery or the suspect’s whereabouts are asked to call the I-Com dispatch center at 360-679-9567.

to have reached the sea-level aquifer — about 100 feet down — and is moving south toward the Freeland Water and Sewer District’s primary drinking-water wells on Scenic Avenue. The four monitoring wells were dug to discover just how far the fuel has traveled. News — even if preliminary — that indicates the fuel may not pose a serious threat to the district’s wells was a big relief to water officials. “We were pretty freaked out a couple months ago,” said Commissioner Eric Hansen, during the district’s monthly meeting Monday night. “This preliminary indication from the well drilling reveals some pretty

good news for us.” According to Grabau, the “plume” is no longer pure gasoline, but is fuel in a highly dissolved state. Along with the groundwater testing planned for next week, survey work will be performed that will more precisely show the direction the water is moving underground. “We know it’s south, southeast,” he said, but this will help narrow it down to a matter of degrees. Grabau said the water quality test results are expected back before the end of the year, possibly Dec. 17.

Editorial

Mayor’s salary not to be taken lightly

Langley’s 2014 budget will be decided by the city council Monday. For all intents and purposes, it appears to be a fine financial plan for the coming year, but there is at least one matter that deserves additional consideration — Mayor Fred McCarthy’s salary. The proposed change is to increase the mayor’s pay from the $31,200 outlined in the 2013 budget to the $53,000 specified by city ordinance. It’s something of a housekeeping measure, but a decision that should not be taken lightly. The concern is not whether McCarthy is qualified to earn so much, it’s about who is not. The job of mayor in small communities has long been filled by average people: business owners, farmers, even barbers. The position was designated part-time but the hours were long and the pay was atrocious. People who filled this role didn’t mind because it was public service, a way to give back to their communities. The caveat of this romantic vision of self-sacrifice is that running a city is a complex job, even more so today with everincreasing regulations and standards. To accomplish its goals municipalities have relied on experienced administrators — professionals armed with the know-how to turn elected vision into hired reality. Of course this costs money, lots of it. What’s changed in recent years, however, is a blending of the two positions; it started, at least on Whidbey Island, in Coupeville with town Mayor Nancy Conard. A former school district budget manager, she was elected mayor and quickly found herself doing two jobs. She asked for a raise, arguing that her increased salary — about $66,000 today — was a bargain for town taxpayers, as competent administrators make over $100,000. Former Langley mayor Paul Samuelson liked the idea and pursued a similar arrangement, and the issue got lots of press and lots of scrutiny. The next person to fill his shoes, Larry Kwarsick, was extremely qualified as a lifelong bureaucrat and government official. He felt the job should remain part-time and lowered the pay to the $31,200 budgeted for 2013, though his career in politics ended with the clang of a jail cell. Now we have a new mayor who wants to revert back to the full-time salary that preceded Kwarsick. Like his predecessor, he is extremely qualified and the city is lucky to have such experience at the helm. But one should wonder, at what cost? It’s not the extra $22,000 — indeed, such arrangements have proved a financial bargain. No, the real price tag is the precedent being set for future mayors. Will they also need to have years and years of government service under their belts? Will the average person who just wants to serve their neighbors be qualified to earn $53,000? This new model for small-town mayors may indeed be the future, and a good one, but the city council would do well to meditate on the long-range ramifications of such a change. Again, it’s not about whether McCarthy deserves the money, it’s about who does not.

Letters Remembering Friend recalls fond memories of ‘Wild Bill’ Editor, A fellow has to have a fishing buddy. It’s part of the wherewithal of fishing. You don’t go it alone. You find your rod, find the fishing hole, then your buddy finds you. When I moved to Whidbey Island in 2000 and found my ideal beach and cottage, it wasn’t long before ‘Wild Bill’ found me. Right away we hit it off. He was licensed in 1962 as an Alaskan Fisherman. Tall and tough — over 6 feet tall — he got a job on a long liner, the demanding work of hauling in half a mile of line with hundreds of baited hooks. It was out for days in the worst of weather then a break for a day or two ashore. But Bill didn’t stop there. He hit the clubs and with an almost arcane skill became a

renowned poker and pool player. Years of that and neglect of body took its toll and Bill had to retire on disability. He lost a lung. Bill lived in a modest cabin on Tiffany Road leading down to the beach to my cottage. The road was named after his daughter. Together we fished the shoreline of the area near the Mukilteo ferry named Cascade View. Like any fishermen, we were a little competitive. Bill caught his limit one day and I had zilch. I saw him cast his line again and yelled, “Hey you have your limit!” “Just cleaning off my line,” he said. Reeling in, he inadvertently hooked another fish. As I yelled again, he gently took the salmon off the hook and returned it to the sea. Bill never ate fish; he gave them all away to friends. Winning at poker, it was the same way. The club on top of the hill in Clinton up from the ferry was his hangout. Buying drinks for the house, he also gave a good part of his winnings to the waitress.

A better choice might have been to improve his shack. Like many of us on the Island, he was his own man. A rough poet at heart, he could reel off cowboy poetry of his own composition. I liked that. Bill was ailing lately. I went to his cabin a few weeks ago where he daily fed a visiting flock of pigeons. The pigeons looked expectant that day, with no corn. His door was locked. I knew he was there. The ambulance took him away the next day. He died a few days later. I lost the fishing buddy — and we all lost a colorful piece of Whidbey Island life. His close friend,

Refund Residents wait for a tax refund Editor, We are sure there are other Island County property taxpayers who share our frustration. Have you been a visitor to the Board of Equalization and had a property tax reduction in your favor? We had our BOE hearing over two years ago now. The result of the hearing yielded a sizable reduction and also the promise of a substantial tax refund. After six months of waiting for a refund, we inquired as to the refund through the Island County Treasurer’s office. We were told they were short staffed and very behind on processing the refunds. After being assured that the refund would certainly be received within the next few months we waited … and waited … and waited. Several emails to the treasurer and our local commissioner, we heard the same excuse. Both officials stated that it certainly shouldn’t take beyond a year and a half

and certainly well before two years; after all, money was appropriated for additional staffing. Well folks, it has been over two years now. Finally, we received a form to sign and return in order to process the refund. We were assured in an email from the treasurer that the refund check would be processed and we should expect the check within about two weeks. Once again, we waited. Confirming that our request form for refund was received, we were told it made it to the Treasurer’s Office on Oct. 23. Again, a call to the Treasurer’s Office and we were told our check would probably be in the Nov. 25 or Dec. 3 run. By Dec. 5, after no refund check, we inquired again. This time we were told the check would likely be mailed out about Dec. 17. A business would be soon out of business if it were run the way the county manages its affairs. Perhaps, if the Assessor’s Office would accurately assign property tax valuations, the Treasurer’s Office would not be so over burdened with refunds. Also,

the BOE would breathe a sigh of relief with the load reduction. Side note, our assessor is now valuing our stretch of waterfront properties at a standard $400,000, no matter if it is a 50 or 100-foot piece of property. Make sense? Perhaps we should clean house at the county.

Holidays Reduce holiday waste, shop local

Editor, During the holidays we tend to do things in excess, including generating 25 percent more trash than any other time of the year. Reducing our waists takes more effort than reducing our waste. Here are some ideas for the holidays and all year long. Buy gifts locally. Whidbey’s shops and holiday fairs offer beautiful and unique gifts. Thrift shops are filled with Christmas table ware, tree stands, linens and decora-

Page A7

tions. Purchasing at thrift stores also benefits local charities. Instead of buying more “stuff,” give a gift of yard cleanup, shopping or meals to those who need help. For family, prepare a family tree or a book of family recipes. Give tickets to a play or special exhibit. Buy a state-park pass for a hiker or camper. Give plants, fruit baskets, hand-made items or reusable cloth bags. Use cloth napkins, table clothes or mats and wash them when they need to be changed, just as for bed linens. For large group parties or meetings, attendees can bring their own tableware. Wrap gifts with tea towels, comic and calendar pages or use gift bags which can be used again. Better yet, enclose gifts in reusable shopping bags. Buy a $12 coupon book from Senior Services of Island County. The coupons expire in a year and are worth over $2,200 of savings on local products and services. For more information go to: www.ssicnews.org/fund raising/ The coupons can

be purchased at all the senior services agencies on Whidbey and at many local merchants. For more ideas, search online at: “Deck the Halls with Less Waste”. Last, be sure to recycle after the holidays. Save gift bags and bows for next year and fold the paper and reuse it or take it for recycling. Trash the tinsel and bows. Christmas trees can be mulched or taken to a local

transfer station. Batteries and electronics can be recycled at Island Recycling facilities. For more information about locations, hours and what can and cannot be recycled call: 360-679-7386 or 321-5111 ext. 7386. Bing Crosby may have dreamt about a “White Christmas,” but I am thinking green. How about you?

Anemic offense dooms Falcons against tenacious Knights By BEN WATANABE South Whidbey Record Few things went well for the Falcon boys basketball team against the King’s Knights on Tuesday. Passes were off, defensive lapses occurred, and the Falcons couldn’t hit an outside shot in the 68-31 loss, South Whidbey’s highest point differential this season. “We had turnovers and gave up easy baskets,” said Falcon senior Brandon Asay, who led South Whidbey with 13 points. “They’re a great team as is, the least we can do is force them to make hard shots, but we gave them a lot of easy shots around the basket.” From the outset, King’s controlled the pace at South Whidbey High School. The Knights charged to a 20-9 lead by the first quarter, led by leading scorer Calvin Kispert’s 16 points. South Whidbey’s defense found some of its backbone in the second quarter, holding King’s to 12 points. But the Falcons’ offense, a con-

the visiting team. “Whoever got the ball, they trapped,” said Falcon sophomore Ricky Muzzy, the team’s main ball handler.

Savanna Hanson led the way with a game-high 17 points, followed by Kendall Adams’ nine points. Daylee Hanson chipped in eight points, seven assists and five steals. King’s opened the game with a 21-0 run in the first quarter. Defensive pressure forced South Whidbey turnovers, limiting the Falcons’ offense.

South Whidbey’s first points came in the second quarter on a layup and a free throw. As South Whidbey struggled, King’s cruised to a 40-3 lead by halftime. With the score at a difference of 40 points by the third quarter, a running clock was used — a mercy rule in high school basketball. Only an official’s

Scoring didn’t become any easier in the second half for South Whidbey; but it seemed to for King’s. South Whidbey committed 21 turnovers. The Falcons were held to six points in the third quarter while the Knights surged to 24 points and a 56-24 lead. Asay credited King’s offense, which picked apart the Falcons’ zone defense and found backdoor cuts for open layups.

Bill Stolcis

Caring for the community, and in an instant, it takes care of him We often describe our colleagues as family, and when a member is in need, everyone responds. Bill has experienced this since joining in 1985, and more than once. The first was when a colleague passed away, volunteers helped the widow (also an EMT for South Whidbey) and her two children. Eventually, she and Bill married. Connie Shields, is now the Division Chief of South Whidbey Fire/EMS. The second was an icy night in December 2006 when a call came in about a bad car accident. They both arrived at the scene only to discover the driver was his stepson, and he was in critical condition. “For all my training and experience, I was overcome with shock and grief. But the crew knew what to do. They not only stabilized my stepson and got him into a life flight helicopter, they took care of me, too.” For more visit:

Off to an 0-4 start on the season, South Whidbey opened Cascade Conference play with a loss against King’s, one of the other two 1A schools in the league. South Whidbey must regroup quickly from Friday’s game at Cedarcrest for a crucial bout at Coupeville on Dec. 17. The winner will have position for the second seed from the Cascade Conference in the district playoffs.

time out, a team’s time out or free throws stopped the clock. Losing to King’s bumped South Whidbey to 0-4 overall and 0-1 in Cascade Conference play. The Falcon girls had a tough test against the Cedarcrest Red Wolves at home Friday, after The Record went to press, before facing the Coupeville Wolves on Dec. 17.

Obituaries William R. Burton

William R. Burton “Wild Bill” passed away peacefully at Everett Care & Rehab on Nov. 16, 2013. He was born Dec. 7, 1951, in Seattle. He is survived by his sister, daughter, grandson and many friends. He was loved by all, was the Legend of Salmon Fishing on the South End of Whidbey and he loved the Seahawks. A memorial will be held at Hong Kong Gardens in Clinton on Sunday, Dec. 15.

David L. Pentz

On Nov. 28, 2013, David L. Pentz died in his home in Freeland, Wash. A dreamer, builder and unconventional thinker, David lived and worked with fiery intelligence, creative gusto and a gentleness of spirit that endeared him to all who knew him. David was born in London, England, in 1939 to Lorna and Peter Pentz (deceased). He began a career spanning 47 years as Rio Tinto Mining Company’s first geotechnical engineer in 1966, going on to work for Golder Associates in 1970, eventually leading the company as its president and chairman until he resigned in 1997. He initially specialized in long-term slope design studies for copper, iron and uranium mines around the world, but later retrained his focus on the management of nuclear waste and fuel cycle economics.

Sheriff’s report

In 1998, he established Pangea Resources of Australia, an international commercial company dedicated to the disposal of spent-fuel and appropriately conditioned excess weapongrade materials. As an outgrowth of Pangea, he created the NEXUS project, which produced viable commercial incentives for nuclear nonproliferation. David was also an expert in the use of uncertainty for decision analysis and spent his final years working as a founding partner of Predicus LLC, a consulting company that continues to provide strategic risk analysis for complex projects in an uncertain framework. David Pentz is remembered as a pragmatic idealist, creative visionary and a loving husband, father and friend who saw the good in all people and the potential in all things. Throughout his life he enjoyed sailing and woodworking, and took great pride in the home he shared with his wife on Whidbey Island. He is survived by his sister, Jen; his wife, Heather; his children, Katrina, Natasha, Peter and Hilary; his grandchildren, Evan and Lorna and his dog, Charlie. A private memorial service will be held in his honor in January 2014.

Robotics Anonymous ‘No kit, no guidebook’

By CELESTE ERICKSON South Whidbey Record The underwater robotics competition just got a little tougher on South Whidbey. A new team, Robotics Anonymous, is putting their best propeller forward in competing in the Ranger division of the Pacific Northwest Regional Underwater Robotics Competition in May. With recent grants, a new 3D printer and custom designs, the rookie team is hoping to give other regional teams a run for their money.

The top two teams in the regional competition will advance to the international competition, called Marine Advanced Technology Education Center’s International ROV competition, in Michigan. “There’s no kit, no guide book,” said Whidbey resident and team mentor Timmie Sinclair. “They’re engineering this from the idea up.” The competition theme is “exploring the Great Lakes,” and combines the challenges of a shipwreck, science and conservation. The 11-member team

began working toward the competition in September as an elective class at South Whidbey Academy. After receiving a $1,500 grant from South Whidbey Schools Foundation and financial support along with a loaner 3D printer from MakerBot, a 3D printing company, the team has started to see its designs in final form. For 16-year-old Grace Lee, working on the team has been a “pretty cool” experience. Lee is in charge of payload for the bot. “It’s a good feeling working on things and succeeding,” Grace said. “It’s preparing us to make connections with other people.” The team hopes to have an operational robot by the end of December. Currently, they are using the printer to build the designs for the propulsion system. But it’s more than a competition — for Robotics Anonymous, it’s a business. The team is divided into two groups, an engineering and a business team, which goes into the final score.

Celeste Erickson / The Record

Mentor Timmie Sinclair explains a concept with the propulsion system to team members Grace Lee and Peter Moore, team members of Robotics Anonymous.

The team sought the marketing help of Whidbey resident Chuck Pettis, brand director of MakerBot. Pettis said working in the 3D printing industry right now is like getting in at the beginning of PC software. In this century it’s hard to rely on an employer, this is an opportunity for students to take control and run their own business, he said.

Parks started with about 40 acres of land donated by the Waterman family, the property that makes up the heart of Community Park. Eventually, the district purchased more land surrounding the initial donation, as well as taking

on other properties like Trustland Trails and the Sports Complex. Now the district manages about 420 acres including three lakes. Guiding that growth for the past three decades was Porter and the fellow commissioners who served with him. But year after year, term after term, one constant remained: Jim Porter.

got BMW?

“Economically we have to keep a close watch on it because we’ve never raised the levy,” he said, referring to the district’s long-standing 15 cents per $1,000 of assessed valuation maintenance and operations levy. With renewed discussion of an aquatic center on Maxwelton Road near Community Park and the district’s current headquarters, Porter said it was important that the district keep in mind all of its users. He noted that Clinton could use a draw, and said he wanted Porter Park ownership made a district

“He’s a great guy to have in your corner,” Gordon said. “He wasn’t one to go out and take the most visible position, but he could be counted on.” Despite seeing the district’s responsibilities multiply ten-fold over his tenure, Porter cautioned against South Whidbey Parks taking on too much in the coming years. Talk has resumed about seeking funding for a smaller aquatic center and assuming ownership of county properties like Dan Porter Memorial Park (no relation to Jim Porter), Dave Mackie Park and Freeland Park.

We have the techs, training & tools necessary to provide you with complete service and repair for all your BMW needs!

excused from the appointment process. When McCarthy sought the position earlier this year, the posted salary was $53,000, plus benefits. But his recent predecessors may have changed the culture at City Hall and set a precedent for the small South Whidbey city of a professional, full-time mayor with full-time pay. Five years ago, the mayor was an average resident who served part time with a part-time salary. The last part-time mayor, paid less than $31,000, was Neil Colburn, chef and owner of Neil’s Clover Patch Cafe and a former city councilman of 16 years. Langley’s dayto-day operations were handled by a salaried city administrator who oversaw the finance, planning, public works and police department heads. Back in 2008, the city council began raising the mayor’s salary. It started out at $14,000 when Colburn was first elected, was raised to $21,000 near SEE MAYOR, A13

the end of his term and eventually lifted to $31,000. “I think a stipend of $20,000 was fine,” said Colburn, in an interview this week. “I don’t think it’s a full-time job; I don’t think it’s a full-time job of any city with 1,000 people.” When former Mayor Paul Samuelson was elected, the city administrator position was cut and its duties were consolidated into the mayor’s office. The city administrator’s salary was about $51,000 in 2008. The city council amended the mayoral salary ordinance to $51,513. But former Mayor Larry Kwarsick rode in like a white knight following legal issues at City Hall under Samuelson. Kwarsick was familiar with Langley as its planning director and promised to reduce the job to a part-time position with parttime pay of $31,000. He eliminated the mayor’s assistant position and moved those responsibilities to the public works director. The savings allowed the Langley Police Department to hire a fourth police officer in 2012. But in early 2013, Kwarsick resigned over falsifying a city document when he was the planning director. That led to McCarthy’s appointment as mayor by the city council. One of his first City Hall shakeups was reassigning the assistant duties to the office administrator and to himself. On Whidbey Island, Langley’s mayor earns more than the mayor of Oak Harbor, a city with of about 22,260, according

disappeared a month ago, over some old, albeit valuable, jewelry any day of the week. “We place so much value on things and stuff,” Tamler said. “It’s a wake-up call to what’s really important.” That said, this has been an experience Tamler won’t soon forget and it’s shattered a bit of her island innocence. “Sadly, we never worried about locking our doors, but we do now,” she said.

Ben Watanabe / The Record

Langley Mayor Fred McCarthy speaks to the city council at its meeting Dec. 4. to the 2012 U.S. Census. Oak Harbor Mayor Scott Dudley has a $50,000 salary — though he returns 20 percent of it to the city. Oak Harbor does, however, have a city manager who earns about $145,000 in salary and benefits. Coupeville Mayor Nancy Conard is the highest paid mayor on the island with a salary around $66,000. The Town of Coupeville, about 1,865 residents according to Census data, also operates without a town administrator. Those duties are handled by the mayor. “I don’t know that one needs to pay a mayor in this environment a large ‘professional’ salary,” said Seligson, who did not seek re-election this fall and will attend his final council meeting Monday, Dec. 16. The mayor, however, is not the highest paid employee in Langley City Hall. Other department heads, such as the police chief, planning director and public works director, earn more. McCarthy said the

mayor’s salary is poised to revert to $31,000 in 2016, based on a city ordinance. Having won the fall election, McCarthy will fulfill Kwarsick’s vacated term which expires in 2015. The city will have to determine whether to leave that salary amount alone with the expectation of a full-time mayor or not. “The pay level is always going to be a matter of a difference of opinion,” said McCarthy, who made twice his mayor’s salary as the schools superintendent. “It’s a decision the city has to make, what kind of leadership does it want.”

A rising trend The Tamlers are not alone. According to the Island County Sheriff’s Office, there have been 87 residential burglary reports on the South End — from Houston Road south — between June 1 and Dec. 11. That’s a rise of 27 percent from the 63 reported burglaries during the same time period in 2012, and an increase of 39 percent from the 53 burglaries that occurred during the same six months in 2011. That compares to 105 on North Whidbey in 2013, 86 in 2012 and 97 in 2011 — again, all between June 1 and Dec.

11 of this year. Some of the South End burglaries, about 30 in September through November, followed a specific pattern, according to Lt. Evan Tingstad, of the south precinct sheriff’s office. The burglar would knock on the door to see if anyone was home. If someone answered, they would make up an excuse for stopping by but if no one was home, they’d kick the door in or look for another way inside. The same tactic is believed to have been used on the home of Rufus and Reece

left behind. “It’s very frustrating to me because my wife is frightened all the time,” he said. “She’s scared.” Tingstad noted, however, that he doesn’t believe all the burglaries are linked. Those that followed the same pattern from September through November may have been, but those are mixed in with more common and unrelated burglaries that happen every year. “It’s not one person or a group of people doing all

Difficult to crack Despite the spike in burglaries in 2013, sheriff’s office officials confirmed that only two arrests have been made on South Whidbey this year. Part of the problem is a shortage of manpower, Sheriff Mark Brown said. The department is planning to hire four more officers, with one in the near future, and Brown hopes that will help, but the department will still have to make do with less than he believes is necessary. “We’ll continue to do the

best we can with the resources we have,” Brown said. Another problem is that burglars, by the nature of the crime, can be hard to catch. “It’s very, very rare to catch a burglar in the act,” said Sgt. Laura Price, of the South Precinct office. Officers have to look for finger prints and use other traditional methods of investigation, but today’s burglars are savvy and the results are often wanting, Tingstad said. “Solving burglaries with traditional investigative methods is rare,” he said. According to Undersheriff Kelly Mauck, a rise in property crime is usually correlated with a rise in drug use. Tingstad agrees, though he looks at the correlation as a decrease in drug enforcement. Once the new officer is hired, it will allow the department to promote an existing officer to become the department’s dedicated drug detective. Mauck is hoping that the new position, which will serve the entire county, will help make a dent in the number of burglaries.

He also clarified the 87 burglaries as the number of caller-reported crimes. Some are mistakenly characterized and are really vandalism or trespassing so the actual number of burglaries is slightly less, he said. He added, however, that the rise from years past is not something to discount. “I’m not saying people shouldn’t be worried,” Mauck said.

Urban crime While some have expressed complaints about the ongoing burglaries, neither Tamler nor the Roses blame the sheriff’s office for what’s happening. Tamler said Tingstad responded to their reported burglary within 15 minutes of their call and was both professional and informative. “He was one of the most remarkable things about all this,” Tamler said. “He just made everything a bit more comfortable.” Rufus Rose said he had “no axe to grind” with the sheriff’s office and that the deputies who came to his home were courteous and took fingerprints, he said. Rose doesn’t believe the problem should be laid at the feet of county law enforcement, saying burglaries

Rose is pinning his hopes on community cooperation to both prevent and identify burglars. The couple is considering a means of a communityfunded reward system for anyone with information that

leads to arrests. Exactly how that might work is unclear, but Rose believes something more must be done. This was the first time they were burglarized in 38 years of life on Whidbey. “The only solution I can think of is to identify them,” Rose said. As for Tamler, the experience affected her in a different way. Rather than searching for ways to end the burglaries, she’s focused on what she still has, the things she says are really important, such as family. But like the Roses, life on Whidbey for her has changed. “I really do think one of the messages behind this is Whidbey is not immune to urban crime,” Tamler said. “We think we’re in the is safe bubble, but we’re not.”
