Proposal may please ‘Crystal,’ but not the judge

Jet noise foes take aim at pro-Navy commissioner

An Oak Harbor man attempted to prove during a sentencing hearing on a meth conviction that he was not too late for love, whatever Def Leppard might have to say on the subject. Jacob Jungwirth, 27, proposed to his girlfriend Monday just before being led away to prison for 18 months. “Crystal,” who was in the audience, immediately accepted the proposal. The stunt didn’t sit well with Island County Superior Court Judge Vickie Churchill. Jungwirth nearly earned himself additional time in the slammer. “I was not pleased that the defendant wanted to make a mockery of the criminal hearing and that he directly defied an order from the judge,” she said in a statement to the Whidbey News-Times. “I seriously considered taking the plea offer off the table. In the end, I did not, but there is a certain decorum that I expect in the courtroom.” Jail staff caution defendants not SEE PROPOSAL, A14

Home for Christmas Petty Officer 1st Class Robert Dorr returned home Dec. 16 from a nine-month cruise aboard the aircraft carrier USS Nimitz to meet his almost-4-month-old daughter, Grace, for the first time. Dorr, his wife Lindsey Dorr, and Grace live in Oak Harbor while Robert commutes to Everett for at least one more year to serve on Nimitz. He has spent his entire 14-year career at NAS Whidbey prior to this tour aboard the Nimitz hoping to return to Whidbey Island with his next orders.

Representatives of two citizens groups that complained about Navy jet noise took aim at Island County Commissioner Jill Johnson on Monday. Michael Monson, president of Coupeville-based Citizens of Ebey’s Reserve, or COER, and Garrett Newkirk, member of North-end group Concerned Citizens of Island County, took turns reading a letter to commissioners calling Johnson’s recent letter of support for the Navy “misleading and inappropriate.” JOHNSON: Also reading was COER “It’s just a tactic member Catherine Andrews. designed to get Johnson presented her let- under my skin ter of support for the Navy and get a rise out and its operations, along with of me.” an economic impact study, to base commander Capt. Mike Nortier during one of last week’s public scoping meetings for the Environmental Impact Statement on the Navy’s new EA-18G Growler. In their prepared comments, Monson and Newkirk said that Johnson’s written support “was not voted on by the Board of Island County Commissioners. Neither does it represent the opinion of all or most of the citizens of Whidbey Island.” SEE JOHNSON, A5

NCIS agents nab Oak Harbor man in Craigslist drug bust By JESSIE STENSLAND Staff reporter

Special agents with the Naval Criminal Investigative Ser vice teamed with detectives from the Oak Harbor Police Department for a Craigslist drug bust in October. Matthew Czarnik, 51, of Oak Harbor man, was caught in the online sting operation, according to court documents. He was charged in Island County Superior Court Dec. 2 with possession of methamphetamine with intent to distribute. The case started after a special agent at Whidbey Island Naval Air Station posted an advertisement on Craigslist. The agent posed as a young woman who was looking for “a new friend who can bring along Tina,” according to the report by Detective Carl Seim with the Oak Harbor police. “Tina” is a slang term for methamphetamine, Seim wrote.

Czarnik allegedly replied to the post by email, stating that he has “lots of tina.” He sent the agent photos of himself and an image of male genitals, the report states. The agent emailed a photo of a woman’s cleavage and set up a time to meet. NCIS contacted Oak Harbor police because Czarnik is a civilian. A special agent agreed to meet with Czarnik at the gazebo in Windjammer Park. Two Oak Harbor detectives and another special agent watched from a hidden spot and swooped in to arrest Czarnik after the agent gave the signal that he showed her the meth, the report states. The officers recovered suspected meth from Czarnik’s pocket and in his vehicle, Seim wrote. If convicted of the charge, Czarnik could face up to a year and eight months in prison under the standard sentencing range.

Fire districts may need to provide health coverage to their volunteers By SARA HANSEN Staff reporter

Fire districts may have to become compliant with the Affordable Care Act by 2015. Volunteer firefighters are considered employees when it comes to the Affordable Care Act, said Marv Koorn, North Whidbey Fire and Rescue chief. “At this point we have a year to investigate all what’s going on,” Koorn said. “We’re going to have to track all the volunteer hours until the IRS or Congress exempt volunteers.” Any business or organization with more than 50 employees that work more than 30 hours per week is required to provide health

insurance for its employees beginning 2015. If an employer does not offer coverage to the employees and their dependents, they could be fined $2,000 per employee by the IRS. Any volunteer with more than 30 hours per week is considered a full-time employee the district must provide benefits for. “We can’t afford medical or the fines,” Koorn said. The mandate was scheduled to begin 2014, but the Treasur y Department delayed implementation for businesses and organizations until 2015. Because of the 2015 delay, Koorn is confident the district can stay under the 50 person full-time limit. Currently the district has 70 volunteers,

According to the letter, 87 percent of fire departments nationwide are staffed by volunteer firefighters. “Communities that rely on volunteer emergency responders are commonly rural, with small tax bases and higher-than-average rates of poverty,” the letter states. Legislation was introduced in the House of Representatives Tuesday, Dec. 10 clarifying “qualified emergency services volunteers” not be considered employees under the law.

Woods allegedly starting punching and kicking walls and windows outside the bar. He allegedly kicked and shattered the window of Queen Nails as well as the back window of a parked car, according to the report by Officer Mike Clements with the Oak Harbor Police Department. Prosecutors charged Woods in Island County Superior Court Dec. 2 with malicious mischief in the second degree.

EARLY HOLIDAY DEADLINES

Melanie Hand’s home was one of the stops along the fifth annual Christmas Home Tour organized

by Soroptimist International of Oak Harbor. tour all five years, and every year they have a potluck after, which they let their husbands attend, Ackley said. “They’re guarding the crock pots right now,” Ackley said. Others said they like the familiarity of walking through thoughtfully decorated homes. “It feels like you’re going to grandma’s house,” said Chris Lock, Oak Harbor resident. Lock has been coming on the tour for the past three years. Before she moved to Oak Harbor, she would go on other Christmas home tours. While she was in Pearl Harbor, she and other Navy wives went touring together. Among the stops on this year’s Whidbey tour was at Barb Jacobs’ home. She chaired the event for four years, but was never able to host. Doll stepped in to help so

Jacobs was able to be part of the tour this year, Jacobs said. Part of the reason for starting the tour five years ago was to offer a holiday event, Jacobs said. “We did’t have one in Oak Harbor, and it seemed like something that the community would like,” Jacobs said. Jacobs home featured an upside Christmas tree, which is advantageous when living in a condo. “You don’t have to move any furniture,” Jacobs said. She and her husband Bob, decorated it with a culinary and wine connoisseur theme. The new additions to the decorations this year were four elves who are sneaking wine at the top of the tree. Bob wired wine glasses to their hands and then placed them in the top parts of the tree, with one balancing precariously from a ledge by the ceiling.

“I’ve already have plans for next year,” Bob said. At every home, guests were able to get a sense of the homeowners personalities. Jacobs describes herself as more whimsical, while her neighbor, and friend, Nancy Fey was more elegant. Fey focused her decorations around the nativity scene because of her faith. She also said she likes angels and decorating with gold and white. Her tree was filled with angels and word ornaments, which read phrases such as noel, peace, rejoice and hope. “I like to say that my tree talks to you,” Fey said. Carol Seth, Fey’s and Jacobs’ downstairs neighbor, also took part in the tour. She decided to host after being approached by her neighbors. “I liked it because it made me decorate early,” Seth said.

It has been 10 Wonderful Years!

Wellness center opens in OH Not a ‘rack ’em and crack ’em situation here’

By SARA HANSEN Staff Reporter

A new wellness center is in town. North Island Chiropractic and Wellness Center opened Oct.1 at 520 E. Whidbey Ave., Suite 101. Owner Dr. Rondle Bennett likes the location because there is plenty of room for growth. “It’ll take me to retirement,” Bennett said. Bennett has been a chiropractor since 1997 and wanted to start up his own practice. He said he likes being able to take time to cater to his patients’ needs. “I try to be gentle,” Bennett said. “I don’t want to have a rack ‘em and crack ‘em situation here.” The center offers chiropractic care provided by Bennett, as well as licensed massage practitioners who can offer a variety of treatments, such as deep tissue, hot stone and pre- and posnatal massage. “They’re good people,” Bennett said about his massage team. “I get nothing but stellar compliments about them.” One of the licensed massage practitioners, Nellie Wilson, moved up from Portland in June and was looking for a space for clinical massage. Wilson works with prenatal and postpartum clients, but also offers a little

The other, Marcia Muchnick moved to the island in August 2012 and is excited to be at the center with Bennett. “He’s spot-on as far as care, professionalism and his chiropractic knowledge,” Muchnick said. She also provides deep tissue massage and throws pottery in her spare time. Bennett likes to feature local artists at his practice and has some of Muchnick’s ceramics on display too.

Muchnick wasn’t always a massage therapist. She used to paint for a living but because of a neck injury she had to stop. She turned to massage and acupuncture for treatment during that time because she did not want to use prescription drugs. Since massage helped her so much, she said decided to become licensed herself. Everyone at the center agreed that massage helps bring balance to the body and can help with the overall treatment of the client. Instead of treating an ail-

ment, they want to focus on a holistic approach. Different types of pain and injury can manifest in the body in many different ways. For example, stress can cause clients to have pain in certain areas, such as the upper and lower back. “People hold stress and anxiety in different parts of the body and that creates tight muscles,” Muchnick said. Besides treating the island residents, Bennett is also one of the sponsors the Whidbey Island Roller Girls — the Oak Harbor roller derby team.

JOHNSON CONTINUED FROM A1 In their letter, they said a main concern of the antinoise group is Johnson’s use of official Island County stationary to write her letter of support for the Navy and its operations. “Commissioner Johnson has the right to express her personal opinion; however, using her title of commissioner and doing so on Island County Board of Commissioners’ letterhead is misleading and inappropriate. “It gives the false impression that her personal opinion is the opinion of the county commission,” the anti-noise group said. “It is not.” Johnson responded, saying that Commissioner Helen Price Johnson held a public forum for those concerned about jet noise in June without obtaining consensus from the board. Price Johnson agreed, adding that she herself has written similar letters. It is common for commissioners to do so as long as they make it clear it is a personal opinion and not the consensus of the board, Price Johnson said. Johnson said the anti-noise groups’ public criticism is “gamesmanship” intended to “shake her up.” “It’s just a tactic designed to get under my skin and get a rise out of me,” Johnson said. Commissioner Kelly Emerson was absent from

Monday’s meeting. About a dozen anti-noise group members attended the commissioners’ regular meeting. The groups’ open letter about Johnson was addressed to U.S. Navy Admiral Bill Gortney, Ted Brown, EA-18G Growler environmental study project manager, and Nortier. “Please understand that Johnson is not speaking for many citizens in Oak Harbor and across Whidbey Island,” the letter said. “Many citizens, including the growing number of those in the undersigned organizations, do not now and will never accept as a reality the hazardous levels of noise saturating our communities from Growler operations. “Johnson simply does not speak for us on this issue.” In her response to the group’s statement, Johnson referred to an email from Monson calling into question her Christian values because she is a Navy supporter. In the November email, Monson also accused Johnson of putting the needs of the business community before the safety of the residents. “As a practicing Christian, how do you justify putting economic interests before the health and well being of fellow humans?” Monson wrote. “Don’t your Christian principles take a higher authority?

“Mine do, I live my faith every day, not just Sunday,” Monson wrote. “I find that a very strange thing for you to do. Don’t your fellow human beings come before the greedy desires of the business community? How can you possibly justify this? You no longer work for the (Oak Harbor) Chamber of Commerce.” Monson, who described himself as a devout Christian, defended his email Tuesday. He said he didn’t intend it to be “below the belt comment,” but simply a question “from one Christian to another.” Johnson said Monday she can very easily reconcile her Christian values with Navy support because she believes “poverty is cruel.” Some Navy supporters said they fear that a closure of OLF Coupeville would place NAS Whidbey at risk of closure, putting thousands of people out of work, Johnson said. COER filed a lawsuit against the Navy in July asking a judge to compel the Navy to complete an EIS on the Growler, which the group claims is louder than previous aircraft. The group is calling for a closure of Outlying Field Coupeville, where carrier landing practices are conducted. The Navy announced plans to complete an EIS in July but said plans for the study have

were suspended in May for 2013, but the Navy has announced plans to resume the operations in January. “I’ve weighed all the facts and right now my focus is the impact this will have on our economy,” Johnson said

Tuesday. “I’m not turning my back on people who are affected, but … my priority is protecting this economy. “If there are ways to mitigate the effects, let’s do it, but I will discuss that at the appropriate time, in the

SOUND OFF

Newspaper needs to balance reporting to reflect OLF support GUEST COLUMNIST

By MAC MCDOWELL

The newspaper continues to report on the front page the ranting of the anti-Navy leadership that wants to move half the Navy off island rather than interview a proportionate number of the 5,000-plus people who signed the petition stating the Outlying Field Coupeville has been operating more than 70 years, is grandfathered and should

keep OLF open. Besides saying the Navy can’t be trusted, the antiNavy leadership claim to know OLF isn’t necessary. I believe the Navy is as, if not more, trustworthy than any government organization. The Navy person’s oath is to protect and defend the Constitution of the United States and that what it stands for. I am sure the three leaders, Monson, Spina or Pickard never served a day in service protecting the country when they were young. Until one says they were a Navy safety officer, commanding officer, a member of an admiral’s staff or in a position of responsibility tasked with looking at causal relationships between training and flying accidents, I suggest they have no clue of which they speak regarding OLF. The newspaper should balance reporting in proportion of more than 5,000 petition signers and the number wanting the Growlers to leave, thereby removing half or more of the 88 percent of economic activity the Navy represents. I request all of the transit, school, hospital and private sector employees who will lose jobs if the Navy moves as a result of not being able train at OLF to comment on the Navy’s website at www.whidbeyeis.com/ comment.aspx with your thoughts about the Navy’s continued presence. n Mac McDowell is a resident of Oak Harbor and a former Island County Commissioner.

LETTERS TO THE EDITOR OLF Coupeville

Very few have right to complain about noise Editor, Outlying Field Coupeville was put into operation by the Navy back in 1943, one may check this date on Wikipedia. That’s 70 years ago. How many of today’s noise complainers owned their property prior to OLF’s use as a carrier-landing practice field? Darned few I’d say. Now, if they knowingly purchased property nearby an active airstrip, can they justify bemoaning the noise that’s generated? I think not. The airstrip was there before they were. If one buys a home adjacent to a slaughterhouse, can they justify complaining about the stench? I see this as much the same. Who in their right mind would build children’s play fields, or locate a park, near an active airstrip and then have the gall to say the noise is bothering their children? I’ve been on North Whidbey most

of the time for the past 52 years and I came long after OLF was being used for aircraft touch-and-go landings. I’ve noted other air bases that were forced to close because, after they were constructed in the boonies, homes were built around them, business opened adjacent to them and the complaints would start. Miramar Naval Air Station in California is an example, as is Oceana Naval Air Station in Virginia. In the 1960s the Navy spent millions of taxpayer dollars to build a new air base out in the desert to replace the air station they had at Alameda, Calif. Let us hope that isn’t replicated here. OLF Coupeville is used for properly preparing Naval aviators for the dynamic nature of shipboard flying. It’s imperative that the carrier landing experience be replicated as much as possible. This includes flying at appropriate altitudes and speeds as well as having practice fields at or near sea level. OLF Coupeville is ideal for this training practice due to its remote location and low ambient lighting. It closely replicates true landings aboard an aircraft carrier. Here on Whidbey, for many years,

Holly Day gets great support from friends Editor, Murphy’s Law says no one gets sick on Wednesdays; too far from weekends. But, when they had a chance to skip outdoor work because Dec. 7 dawned at 17 degrees Fahrenheit, the Friends of South Whidbey State Park showed up in impressive numbers to work, and it was on a Saturday.

We need a solid plan before using only renewable energy GUEST COLUMN

By DON BRUNELL

This summer, the nation sweltered in a deadly heat wave. High temperatures hovered near 100 degrees, the heat buckled highways in several states and firefighters in Indianapolis evacuated 300 people from a senior living community when the air conditioning failed. Cities from New York to Seattle set up cooling centers. This fall, the nation froze in near-record cold. Temperatures in the upper Midwest recently plummeted to -31 degrees. Freezing temperatures and ice storms snarled air traffic across the nation. Overnight lows in the normally temperate Puget Sound region plunged into the teens and 20s — and stayed there for a week. Cities across the state opened public buildings during the night for the homeless, and electricity demand skyrocketed as homeowners pushed up the thermostat to fend off the bone-chilling cold. The one constant in these two extremes has been a high demand for electricity. In suffocating heat or freezing cold, ample power supplies are literally a matter of life or death. Yet, if some environmental activists get their way, the U.S. will eliminate almost 90 percent of its electricity. The Sierra Club and others have mounted an aggressive national campaign to eliminate the use of all fossil fuels. They started with coal and quickly expanded their purity crusade to all forms of fossil fuels, including clean-burning natural gas. Their “War On (insert-any-fossil-fuel-here)” targets anything related to the use of fossil fuels — from coal mining to gas exploration, to power plant siting to pipelines, to transmission lines, to supply trains, to shipping terminals. But renewables — wind, solar, geothermal and hydropower combined — produce only 12 percent of our energy needs. Yet even that is under attack in some quarters. Hydropower is the single largest form of renewable energy, producing 6.7 percent of

the nation’s electricity. Here in Washington, hydropower produces more than 75 percent of our electricity. Nevertheless, many activists want to severely restrict hydropower production because of the dams. They even push to tear down key dams. They have been successful to some degree. For example, our state law does not allow large utilities to include hydropower in their mandated renewable energy portfolio. Even environmentally conscious California embraces hydropower. If these anti-hydropower activists and their fellow “no-fossil-fuel” warriors succeed, they will eliminate the source of 95 percent of our energy. What then? How do they intend to replace it? What is their plan? How will they ensure that we can heat and cool 135 million homes, businesses, grocery stores, hospitals and schools? They need to answer these questions, or we will freeze in the winter and swelter in the summer. Yes, we must embrace all practical forms of energy, and the use of renewable energy has increased significantly over the years. But that increase comes with a cost — a cost that has been subsidized by taxpayers. According to the Congressional Budget Office, the federal government awarded $16 billion in energy subsidies in 2013 — 74 percent of it for renewable energy and energy efficiency. Fossil fuels received 20 percent of the total, and nuclear power received 7 percent. We also need to realize that, as costs for alternative energy rise, so do our electric bills hitting the poorest and most vulnerable families the hardest. Finally, how will the opponents of fossil fuels solve the massive job losses and economic collapse that would follow the destruction of the U.S. energy industry? The American Petroleum Institute reports that the oil and gas industry supports 9.2 million jobs in the U.S. and pays $86 million a day in taxes. How do the “no-fossil-fuel” purists plan to replace that? We need to have the answers to these questions before we lurch blindly forward on a campaign to eliminate the use of fossil fuel. Otherwise, we’ll all be left out in the cold. n Don Brunell is president of the nonprofit Association of Washington.

Island county approves event permitting for Whidbey farms By JANIS REID Staff reporter

Island County commissioners unanimously approved an ordinance earlier this month that allows permitting for events on agricultural properties. The policy applies to events taking place on advertised properties for uses such as weddings, reunions, graduations and food events for a fee, or otherwise commercial use that may include more than 50 attendees. It is not the county’s intent to regulate private parties hosted by property owners, the ordinance states. The ordinance is outlines temporary event permitting process, which would establish basic guidelines for staff to follow in reviewing permitting applications, and serve as an interim provision until a complete update to the Comprehensive Plan is completed in 2014, when permanent standards can be adopted. Planning Director David Wechner said he was approached by a group of residents who asked the county to

The commissioners approved some additional language to the ordinance suggested by Commissioner Helen Price Johnson, which proposed events on parcels smaller than five acres can be considered on a case by case basis and that the type and scope of the event will factor into its approval. “It’s an important industry for our community and it’s important to balance the needs of our neighborhoods with the growing needs of this industry,” Price Johnson said. The temporary use permit is valid for a calendar year and may be renewed annually if permit conditions were met the previous year. To be eligible for a permit, applicants must submit a management plan for each event which includes plans for parking, sanitation, noise, lighting, emergency access points and identifying the structures to be used. Some structures may be ineligible according to building code guidelines. Application forms are provided by the county.

come up with a set of guidelines that would both allow for the events but protect adjacent properties. “Our goal is to give a predictable process to people in the industry but we’re not so onerous that we are making it impossible to engage in this industry,” Commissioner Jill Johnson said. Chef Vincent Nattress, who owns a catering business and a small agricultural parcel in Bayview, thanked the commissioners during public comment for allowing farms to tap into the island’s event industry. “It’s important that we address and find a way to have more properties used for special events,” Nattress said. “It’s a growing industry that allows a lot of revenue to enter the county.” The temporary permit events are limited to 150 people and valid for up to 10 events per year. Events must cease at 10 p.m. The property’s size must be a minimum of five acres and a minimum dimension of 300 feet in width or length. Property owners be present on site during the event if the residence is a rental.

Oak Harbor swimmers fly by Monroe 122-39 By JIM WALLER Sports editor

Monroe couldn’t handle the talent or depth of the Oak Harbor High School swim team and was swamped by the Wildcats 122-39 at John Vanderzicht Pool Monday, Dec. 16. Oak Harbor registered nine firsts and eight second places in 11 events, all without one of its top swimmers, Caley Powers, who missed the meet while on a college visitation. Cedric Cabigting (100 butterfly, 1:06.31; 100 backstroke, 1:09.25) and Joe Gorman (200 freestyle, 2:16.09; 400 free, 4:44.41) each own two individual events. The pair also picked up two relay wins. They teamed with Toren Wood and Dakota Powers to take the 200 medley relay (2:06.83). Cabigting, Powers, Micha Geist and Jake Nelson won the 200 free relay (1:55.54); and Gorman, Powers, Derek Volk and Ryan Cuajunco captured the 400 free relay (4:36.43).

Wrestlers 3rd at Edmonds

The Oak Harbor High School wrestling team finish third in the 18-team Edmonds Invitational Saturday, Dec. 14. “That place is great for the team,” coach Peter Esvelt said, noting his club accomplished the finish even though it did not fill two weights (126 and 145) because of injuries. Next up is a double dual meet at 7 p.m. Thursday, Dec. 19, with Meadowdale at Mount Vernon. Southridge of Kennewick won the Edmonds Invitational with 167.5 points, followed by Arlington (154.5) and Oak Harbor (144.5). Seven different Wildcats placed, led by Jahleel Vester, the 138pound champion. Vester pinned Edmonds’ Hiram Martin in the second round of the title match. Christian Bertram (113), Jeremy Vester (132) and Jackson Constant (285) all placed second, earning six pins and a technical fall between them leading into the championship bouts. Mark Johnston (160) claimed third and Kekai Tarrant (170) and Jacob Dugin (195) nabbed fifths.

PREP ROUNDUP Cold shooting sinks ‘Cats

The Oak Harbor girls basketball team was a collection of Cool ‘Cats last weekend, and, in this case, that wasn’t a good thing. The Wildcat shooters were in a deep freeze in a pair of losses. First, Oak Harbor fell 67-45 to visiting Stanwood Friday, Dec. 13, in the league opener, then the Wildcats went to Bellingham Saturday where they lost 42-31 to Squalicum in a nonleague game. The first half was particularly icy for Oak Harbor in both games, shooting only 20 percent (5-for-25) in the Stanwood loss and a frigid 12 percent (3-for-25) at Squalicum. Stanwood (1-0, 3-1), the defending Wesco 3A North champion, blitzed Oak Harbor 23-11 in the first quarter and led 37-18 at the break. Unlike the Wildcats, the Spartans shot well, 43 percent, over the first two quarters. The lead grew to 49-27 after three periods. Annie Leete recorded a double-double for Oak Harbor, pouring in 22 points and snaring 15 rebounds. Deja Bunch scored seven points, AnnaBelle Whitefoot five, Liz Lym four, Jinai Guzman three, Hayley Lundstrom three and Brook Peplinski one. Natalie Fiallos, Lundstrom and Peplinski had five rebounds each, and Fiallos recorded three assists. The poor shooting night at Squalicum was compounded by Leete’s foul trouble. Leete, the Wildcats’ leading scorer on year, played just over half the game and scored only three points. The Storm didn’t shoot well either, but 30 percent was good enough to outscore Oak Harbor 13-4 in each of the first two quarters for a 26-8 halftime lead. The Wildcats “heated up” to 22 percent in the second half and outscored Squalicum 12-9 in the third period and

WWW.WHIDBEYNEWSTIMES.COM 11-7 in the fourth quarters. Bunch scored six points. Bryn Langrock, Guzman and Lundstrom tallied five each, Fiallos three, Lym two and Whitefoot two. Lundstrom collected nine boards and Fiallos three assists. Oak Harbor (0-1, 0-4) goes to fourthranked Everett (0-0, 4-0) at 7:15 p.m. Wednesday, Dec 18.

D leads Wolves to win After its defense staked a good-sized lead, the Coupeville girls basketball team hung on tight at the end to secure 35-31 win at Lakewood Friday, Dec. 13. The Wolves limited the Cougars to only 14 points through the first three quarters and took a 12-point lead into the final frame. Lakewood rallied for 17 fourth-quarter points and sliced the gap to three with seven seconds left when Maddi Strasburg hit a free throw to lock up the win. Coupeville used a full-court press and a sticky man-to-man, half-court defense to frustrate the Cougars for three quarters. The Wolves led 6-4, 16-10 and 26-14 at the quarters. Lakewood (0-2, 0-4) accelerated its pressure and began crashing the boards in the fourth quarter to get back into the game. Strasburg, however, hit the clincher to set the final score. Not all was bad for Coupeville in the fourth. Coach David King liked the play of his offense: “We didn’t rush our offense like we have in the past. Things are starting to click up and down the roster.” Makana Stone had nine points, 11 rebounds, five steals and three blocks. Strasburg scored nine points, Hailey Hammer seven, Julia Myers four, Bree Messner two, Kacie Kiel two and Monica Vidoni two. Kiel added seven rebounds and four assists, and Messner grabbed four offensive rebounds. Coupeville (1-1, 2-2) travels to Orcas Island (3-0) for a nonleague game at 5:45 p.m. Friday, Dec. 20.

Near misses not enough for Coupeville boys team By JIM WALLER Sports editor

Close losses just aren’t cutting it any more, according to Coupeville High School boys basketball coach Anthony Smith. The Wolves need wins, not moral victories, Smith said, after his club fell 52-47 to visiting Lakewood Friday, Dec. 13, and 65-55 to visiting University Prep Saturday in a non-conference game. “I am proud of the way my kids battled,” Smith said, “but we have to execute on offense better.” The two games followed different paths. Lakewood built an early lead and then weathered a furious Coupeville rally in the fourth quarter. Seattle’s University Prep and Coupeville battled through three close quarters before the Pumas pulled away late. Lakewood ran to a 20-10 first-quarter lead behind 10 points from Ryan Alford. The lead was 29-21 at the break and 42-30 heading into the final quarter. Behind eight points by Hesselgrave and 36Wiley hour annual four from Nick Streubel, Wolves came roaring back but couldn’t quite catch the Cougars (1-1, 2-2). Hesselgrave scored a season-high 17 points, Morgan

Coupeville fell into deep foul trouble in the first quarter when Hesselgrave and Aaron Trumbull recorded three fouls each and Streubel two, forcing them to sit extended minutes. 14, A four-minute span, starting with two minutes left in the third quarter, swung the game in the Pumas’ favor as UP went on a 17-4 run.

She plans to buy a Mini Skinneeez as a stocking stuffer for her pet. fast to slow down. “It’s for dogs that inhale their food,” said Lindsey Johnson, an employee at Island Pet Center. The bowl was popular with Evee, a 16-week-old yellow lab who got to sample some food at the store. “I might have to get one of these for her for Christmas,” said Roxanne Culver, Evee’s owner. “She scarfs her food down.” Bird owners also frequent the store during the holidays

in search of toys, swings and mirrors for their feathered friends. “People love their pets,” Johnson said. James Dunn, owner of Critters & Company Pet Center in Clinton, said treats and chew toys are popular year-round for dogs while sales of softer, plush toys increase during the holidays. Following that trend, a shipment of stuffed fur chickens recently arrived at Paw in Hand pet boutique in

downtown Oak Harbor for dogs to toss and chew, as well as a shipment of Santa pajamas for pets. Pet stores tend to offer more options for dogs as cats tend to be less finicky. Dunn said that his No. 1 seller around Christmas time for cats is Da Bird. He said employees at his store annually hold a friendly wager on which cat item will be the season’s top seller between Da Bird, a stick that dangles a feathery toy from a

string, and a lazer beam that cats chase. He said employees will even buy the lazer themselves to increase their odds. “It still doesn’t win,” he said. That honor falls upon Da Bird, which costs $10. At The Healthy Pet in Freeland, the trend this month is to buy Christmas type toys for their pets and gift certificates, said sales associate Sabra Whitlock. “Stocking stuffers are the big things they look for,” she said. “Bones and dog treats and Christmas pet toys.” She said that popular items for dogs are the harder rubber Kong chew toys and Tuffy softer ones. “We have a really good squid now that is super tough,” Whitlock said. “It’s a softer toy with a squeak in it. It has seven layers of material.” The Tuffy Mega squid sells between $11.99 and $13.99 depending on its size. Whitlock said pets are like children. “I’ve worked in the pet industry since 1998,” she said. “When the economy crashed, we were still seeing an increase in sales in the pet business.”

NAS Whidbey: OLF practices resume in January as planned Whidbey Island Naval Air Station ha announced its plans to resume flight operations at Outlying Landing Field Coupeville in January. While the actual start date is not been set, the Navy will resume its practice of releasing practice schedules a week in advance for community planning purposes, said Mike Welding, public affairs officer for NAS Whidbey. Residents living in Coupeville and around the OLF should anticipate an increase in jet noise due to pilots conducting field carrier landing practice in preparation for combat deployments around the world, said Navy officials in a press release issued Tuesday. The landing practice frequency is determined by Fleet Replacement Squadron student training curriculum and pre-deployment carrier EA-6B Prowler and EA-18G Growler squadron flight qual-

PROPOSAL CONTINUED FROM A1 three years ago, Carman explained. As is the practice, Churchill asked Jungwirth if he had anything to say before she handed down his sentence. He apologized for his actions and said he had found the love of his life. He then asked his girlfriend to marry him, according to the deputy prosecutor. Carman said he didn’t realize that the woman was sitting directly behind him until she spoke, accepting the marriage proposal. She was sitting in the row that’s reserved for lawyers and court personnel for security reasons. As Carman said, the

to even look around the courtroom during the hearing, let alone communicate with anyone in the gallery. Deputy Prosecutor David Carman handled the case against Jungwirth and was in court during the unusual moment. He explained that Jungwirth pleaded guilty to two counts of possession of methamphetamine. Under the plea bargain, the prosecution and defense recommended a sentence of 18 months in prison. The sentence for Jungwirth was longer than usual because of his criminal history, which includes a prison sentence for assaulting a different girlfriend

but there hasn’t been an out-of-the-ordinary uptick in reports. “Maybe it’s because of the new neighborhood watch groups, maybe it’s watchful neighbors or maybe people are more cognizant of what’s going on around them,” he said.

judge was not amused. “The courtroom has a certain purpose, and marriage proposals during criminal hearings are not part of it,” Churchill wrote. “The defendant in question was entering a guilty plea to two serious felonies.” Churchill warned Jungwirth that the hearing wasn’t the proper place for a marriage proposal, but was willing to let the matter go. “However, in full defiance of that warning and without any sense of how generous the plea offer was, he again turned to the audience and spoke again to whom I suppose was his fiance,” she added. Carman said no rings were exchanged during the memorable proposal, mainly because the groom-to-be was shackled.

people to do. He pointed out that some people may not realize they’ve been hit since it’s hard to tell what mail isn’t there. While the crime trend may not be out of the ordinary, police are cautioning residents to take precautions to help ensure that holiday joy isn’t dampened by a Christmastime jerk. “Have your packages delivered to a neighbor, a friend or your workplace, if you can,” Green said. In addition, he urges folks to check their mail and bank accounts on a regular basis since thieves tend to target credit-card-related mail. Officer Jennifer Yzaguirre, community service officer, said the local postmaster suggested neighborhoods worried about mail theft purchase a quality lock box. She pointed to the website mailboxes.com. Yzaguirre said officers caught a prolific mail thief in November. Rose McKay, 29, is suspected of stealing from 40 or more victims in the city limits; Officer Lisa Powers is still tracking down the victims, she said. The officer arrested McKay for driving while license suspended and discovered she was holding credit cards and checks with various names on them. McKay was arrested on suspicion of eight counts of ID theft, one count of possession of stolen mail, two counts of possession of stolen property and two counts of possession of a legend drug without prescription, according to Yzaguirre.

Oddly enough, all the things we insure against may never happen. But, when one talks about final arrangements, the only certainty in life, no one thinks to insure the inevitable. It only makes sense, for so many reasons.

Charmaine and her daughter Stacey run the store while Gordy handles the Public Relations aspect of the business, a position he was born for since he knows just about everyone in Oak Harbor.

How many things have you insured against in your lifetime? You have auto insurance. You’re a good driver and don’t think you need it, but the state didn’t give you a choice. When you bought your home, the lender Linda Haddon insisted that you insure it and the contents in case of fire. The actual chances of it catching fire are pretty slim. You have medical insurance and you may or may not need it, but without it, you’ll never find a doctor who will take the time to see you. We even insure against disaster and store food, water, blankets, flashlights and all kids of survival goods, just in case.

Land Title and Escrow has 5 locations to serve you in Island & Skagit Counties!
