Marshal and sheriff’s offices may integrate in new year By JESSIE STENSLAND Staff reporter

The future of the Coupeville Marshal’s Office will be decided in the new year. And depending on what option the council members

choose, the decision could have a financial benefit for the Island County Sheriff’s Office. Mayor Nancy Conard said she plans to present council members with two options in January for the marshal’s

office, which has suffered from staffing problems since three of four deputies left during a three-month period last year. “The goal is to restore predictability to the office,” she said.

The first option, she said, is to cut the number of deputy marshals by one and use the extra funds to boost wages. She said making wages competitive with other departments may encourage deputies to stay with the office.

“There are pluses on both sides,” she said. “I have not made a recommendation yet.” Neither options will provide 24-hour, seven-daysSEE MARSHAL, A7

The second option is to contract for services with the Island County Sheriff’s Office to provide coverage. Conard said the cost for either option is similar, running around $400,000 to $450,000 a year.

Fitness for the new year By SARA HANSEN Staff Reporter

Now that 2014 is here, it’s time to start making those resolutions a reality. Fitness tops the charts when it comes to putting one’s best foot forward for the new year, and a new Oak Harbor business might help reach those goals. Kyle Isaacson and Tyson Van Dam opened Rep Fitness on 3075 N. Oak Harbor Road Nov. 18. The pair had been talking about opening their own place for about 1 1/2 years. “This facility is great from a training stand point,” Van Dam said. Because of their appointment-based system, they are able offer training without having to wait in line for equipment and a private atmosphere for clients. “It’s more personal,” Isaacson said. “It’s an isolated situation where you can come in and work out.”

They are open from 4:30 a.m. to 6 or 7 p.m. by appointment. Anyone is welcome to stop by, check out the place and set-up a meeting one-on-one, Van Dam said. Van Dam said they are working with a couple other personal trainers and a physical therapist to use their space. They have the room to accommodate five trainers and their clients. A space has also been set aside for children, with some toys and a couple televisions. “The kids can come in and hang out,” Van Dam said. The facility also has showers for clients to use if they are heading straight to work after exercising, Van Dam said. Isaacson said they’ve been busy since they opened the facility. The business also offers another aspect of fitness. They are looking to expand in the space adjacent to them for sports specific training in addition to their regular services. They will have turf and rubber surfaces for athletes to train on. “I’ve always wanted to branch out and offer sport specific training,” Van Dam said. With their background as collegiate athletes, complemented with their degrees in exercise physiology, it was a natural path for them to open

More than 80 percent of Washington employers will have lower or stable unemployment tax rates in 2014 compared to 2013, according to the state’s Employment Security Department. Of the roughly 170,000 taxable employers, 29 percent will move into lower rate classes and 53 percent will remain in the same rate class as 2013. Another 18 percent will enter a higher rate class because of their layoff history over the past four years. By comparison, in 2013, 14 percent of employers moved into lower rate classes, 61 percent stayed the same and 25 percent paid higher rates. “The tide is turning, and we’re seeing a larger number of companies moving back down the rate ladder,” said Employment Security

Commissioner Dale Peinecke. “That’s a very positive sign.” There are 40 rate classes altogether, ranging from 0.14 percent to 5.82 percent for most employers. The total tax rate for each class will remain the same as in 2013. Unemployment taxes will be assessed on the first $41,300 of each employee’s earnings in 2014. These taxes are paid entirely by employers; workers do not pay into the unemployment trust fund. The average tax paid for each employee will decrease by $6 to $467 for the year. Each employer’s actual tax bill depends on its total payroll and rate class. In 2013, Washington’s average unemployment tax rate ranked 26th-highest in the nation, down from 4th-highest in 2008. Unemployment tax rates are established in state law. The Employment Security Department does not set the rates.

Wednesday, January 1, 2014 • Whidbey News-Times

New year brings with it new goals for the WNT editorial staff As we venture as a newspaper into 2014, members of the Whidbey News-Times editorial staff were asked to share resolutions for the coming year. Here is what they said: n Keven R. Graves, editor and publisher: To improve in all areas as a newspaper while building on the community’s trust in us and helping to make a positive difference by empowering our readers. Also, to always remember that, without family, all else has little meaning. n Megan Hansen, contributing editor: To take more risks and live life as it happens rather than ponder all the what-ifs. n Jessie Stensland, assistant editor: I resolve to sleep less and drive slower. n Nathan Whalen, staff reporter: I resolve to drink less soda and lose some weight.

LETTERS TO THE EDITOR

n Ron Newberry, staff reporter: I want to be more active in 2014, and that involves more exercise, but chiefly some healthier choices when it comes to choosing what to eat. So my 2014 New Year’s Resolution is two-fold: Make eating something self-prepared at home a priority, while reducing the temptation to delve deeper into Oak Harbor’s fastfood smorgasbord.

OLF

n Janis Reid, staff reporter: To enjoy all the outdoor activities the Pacific Northwest has to offer: biking, hiking, kayaking, sailing, whale watching… all of it. Lose a few pounds. Turn 40 without a meltdown. And go see Canada already. n Sara Hansen, staff reporter: I don’t usually make New Year’s resolutions, but I think I need some for 2014. I signed up for the Whidbey Island Half Marathon to hold myself accountable to stay in shape. But most importantly, I want to make time for me and my husband — no matter how busy I get with work. I need to stop and slow down for a moment to catch my breath in order to reset each week. n Jim Waller, sports editor: Reporters are generally inquisitive and social. I’m shy and reserved, not the best attributes for someone in my profession. This year I plan to be more outgoing so I can mature into what is expected of a reporter; you know, someone more annoying and obnoxious.

Jet noise levels are like a vacuum Editor, Thanks to a recent article in a regional daily newspaper, we have more detailed information concerning the Navy’s Outlying Field Coupeville controversy. According to the map shown in the article, maximum jet noise levels in the OLF area do not exceed 70 decibels, which is comparable to the noise produced by a vacuum cleaner, as noted in the article. With this startling information, if we can believe the COER activists, we must assume that all of those poor children who have been exposed to their mother’s Hoover will soon lose their hearing. We can just imagine the outrage, and lawsuits this

news will produce. Brace yourself, Mr. Hoover. Getting back to jet noise, and considering the universal goodwill for America that we see all around the world, especially in places like China, Russia, Iran, etc., maybe we should just do away with those pesky Navy jets. Who needs them? And don’t forget the vacuum cleaners.

David Howe Greenbank

Editor’s note: Island County noise level maps indicate sound levels averaged over a year. Single event operations by the Navy can exceed 100 decibels.

Great response to snow by town Editor, Early in the morning on Dec. 20, I drove through falling snow to bake at our restaurant, the Knead & Feed, on Front Street. Less than an hour after arriving at work, the Town of Coupeville snow plow was carefully plowing our street and others. Shortly after that, Town employees wielding snow shovels were busily clearing the boardwalks and sidewalks. I want to thank the crews that responded so rapidly! Doug Kroon Knead & Feed Restaurant

Mauck said a contract with Coupeville will also be good for the sheriff’s office, which has suffered from staffing issues in recession-related budget cuts. He said combining some of the administrative functions of law enforcement will provide for some economies of scale. At the same time, Coupeville leaders will still make policy decisions for law enforcement. “The sheriff doesn’t have any interest in defining the priorities of law enforcement for the town,” he said.

Freeland writer nominated for screenplay By CELESTE ERICKSON South Whidbey Record

At first glance Bob Nelson might seem like a regular islander, working on his lawn or enjoying the scenes at Ebey’s Prairie. But Nelson w i l l s t e p o u t of the shado w s t h i s year a n d into a NELSON tuxedo. Nelson wrote the screenplay “Nebraska” and it’s been nominated for five Golden Globe awards, including best picture and best screenwriter. It’s up against screenplays from “Her,” “Philomena,” “12 Years a Slave” and “American Hustle.” The award show will take place on Jan. 12. The film and Nelson’s screenplay are also nominated for numerous awards, including six nominations from the Critics’ Choice Movie Awards, six nominations from Film Independent Spirit Awards, and two nominations for the film from the Screen Actors Guild. Nominees for the Academy Awards will announced on Jan. 16. Nelson can still hardly believe it. “It’s purely delusional,” he said. Nelson moved to Freeland from Kent in 2005 after vacationing regularly to the area. He said he’s always loved the island and its community. “The only bad part is we can’t come here on vacation anymore,” he said. Nelson wrote the “Nebraska” screenplay 10 years ago after working on the show “Almost Live!” for a decade. The show featured a group of Seattlebased performers who wrote and acted comedy skits.

“I was itching to try a drama; before this I wrote straight comedy,” he said. “Mixing the two appealed to me. To put something out there close to what I’d experienced to see if people relate.” For Nelson, the biggest challenge was writing the screenplay. He had never written anything longer than 5 minutes before this, he said. He spent more than a year writing a story that held together for an hour and 45 minutes. When Nelson began to write the screenplay, he said he wanted to see if it could get into a small film festival and then go straight to DVD. “That was my highest hope,” he said. For the screenplay to attract the attention of renowned American film director Alexander Payne, become a film and then shown at national premieres never crossed his mind, he said. The film, shot in black and white, follows a father on a journey to retrieve $1 million from a sweepstakes letter he received in the mail. The father, played by Bruce Dern, convinces his son, Will Forte, to accompany him on road trip from Montana to Nebraska and claim his winnings, meeting friends and family along the way. The film, directed by Payne, reflects on family relationships and life in the midwest. Nelson said he drew from memories of visiting family in Nebraska and was inspired by a story he heard on the news of a man traveling to claim his fortune. “Our story is so simple, in a way that makes us lucky (when up against the other films),” Nelson said. “It’s a simple-old fashioned story.” Telling these stories about regular people and making a profit is a something Payne does well, Nelson said, and is a key reason for the film’s success.

Richard Evans contemplates an art installation called “Poor Little Rich Boy.” Evans includes mirrors in his work to “get people involved in the art — just for a moment,” he said.

Out of this world Clinton artist explores earth’s objects in art installations By CELESTE ERICKSON South Whidbey Record

When artist Richard Evans’ walks into his Clinton studio, he walks into an area full of objects that have taken on another life. Milk Dud boxes attached to the wheel of a tire, office chairs turned upside down and packing peanuts forming a pool around a figurine are all part of Evans’ work in art installations. In his upcoming exhibit, “Near-Earth Objects,” Evans is taking viewers out of this world and into one in which a fictional character is looking back at Earth through his art installations. “I attempt to make people smile,” Evans said. “I want people to slow down a little.” The show will run from Jan. 3 to Feb. 2 at the Bayview Cash Store. An opening reception of the exhibit will take place from 6 to 8 p.m. Friday, Jan. 3 at the Bayview Cash Store 5603 Bayview Road, Langley.

Richard Evans puts the final touches on his art installation called “Mission Control.” The piece will be featured in his upcoming show, “Near-Earth Objects,” opening Jan. 3. Evans is also known for his work in film as a director, writer and producer of feature-length films. He acted in roles for TV shows such as “Peyton Place,” “Gunsmoke,” “Mr. Novak,” “Bonanza,” “Mod Squad,” “Lou Grant” and “Star Trek.” He most recently directed “Frost/ Nixon” at the Whidbey Island Center for the Arts in 2012. Evans spent six months building the 32 pieces of mixed media installations featured in the show. The work is not typical art, Evans said.

He scoured thrift stores, junkyards and even ventured into dumpster diving to find items he could repurpose and materials people would not expect. The result is a collection of “found objects,” Evans described. “People have a way of scooping up the remaining,” he said. Many of the pieces took multiple days to set up in the space, which was one of the biggest difficulties for Evans. He said it was a challenge to figure out the logistics of assembling everything into the Bayview space. “I’m moving stuff that was never meant to be moved in the first place,” he said. The show documents the findings of a fictional futuristic space explorer, Commander Dexter T. Rose, Jr., who works as an astronaut for the National Bureau of International Bureaus. The exhibit is set as Commander Rose’s space museum, complete with tours from organizers Marian Myszkowski and Shelley Hartle. The work is a commentary on concepts ranging from the military industrial complex, technical data and the manipulations of the entertainment and advertising industries. “I want to entertain the

thought about the business of competition that runs the world,” he said. Evans was invited to show his work by Myszkowski, who is also the director of program and fund development at Goosefoot. Myszkowski said she was impressed by his work in the past and thought he deserved a one-man show, and the Bayview Cash Store was the place to do it. “He has a gift for combining found and repurposed objects with philosophical and political thought,” she said. “It’s a great fusion.” Myszkowski was taken by the way Evans approaches his work. He’s not trying to please anybody with his art, she said. “He puts things together in new unique ways, but also makes you think about things as well,” she said. “It’s like Richard has taken everything he’s ever learned, thought and felt and put it into visual form.” Evans described the title of the show as applicable to the artist as well. “Near Earth covers the work and the artist,” Evans joked. “I try to make things fresh, not the same,” he said.
