races to completion

SW port scheme passed under fire By CELESTE ERICKSON South Whidbey Record Improving business growth, enhancing transportation opportunities and maintaining public access for waterfronts are a few the Port of South Whidbey’s primary goals over the next six years. Those objectives, and others, were outlined in the port’s comprehensive scheme, a long-range public planning document that was adopted during the commissioners’ regular

meeting Tuesday, Jan. 14. Five people, not including a Record reporter, attended the hearing to share their concerns, including former port commissioner Geoff Tapert. He expressed disappointment over the document in comparison to the previous scheme crafted while he was a commissioner from 2005 to 2011. “I read through it in five minutes,” Tapert said. “It’s pathetic.” SEE PORT, A9

Directors hammer out school priorities Ben Watanabe / The Record

Jake Leonard and Tim Leonard work on the 32-foot catamaran, set to be delivered to South Whidbey Fire/EMS this month as its new, nearly $500,000 fire suppression and marine response vessel.

By BEN WATANABE South Whidbey Record A nearly $500,000 catamaran built for South Whidbey Fire/EMS is late for delivery, and daily penalties for the Freeland-based manufacturer may be adding up. The 32-foot emergency response vessel, built by North Cross Aluminum, was recently put into the water in Oak Harbor and piloted to Langley where it will be

permanently moored. The boat is not finished, however, and each day past the Jan. 1 delivery deadline could cost the builder $400 in late fees. “They’re working fast and furious to get it done,” said Chief Rusty Palmer at a fire commissioners meeting Tuesday night. A clause in the contract outlines the $400 per calendar day penalty, but enforcing the fines is at the discretion of the district’s fire commissioners.

“That will be entirely up to the board to enforce,” Palmer said. “If they feel the vendor has tried as hard as he can, they can forgo it.” In a later interview, Palmer said North Cross may not be entirely at fault, as the builder has been bogged down with warranty issues of equipment supplied by other companies. The main issue is

The high school track was the hot-button topic Wednesday night during a South Whidbey School District workshop. The board of directors was gathered to review priorities of upcoming projects that will be funded from the nearly $6 million capital/technology levy passed in 2013. A large chunk of time was spent discussing the resurfacing of the South Whidbey High School track, which has begun to be a health and safety concern for the district. Problems with the facility have resulted in lost practice time for the track team and no home meets. High school track and field coach Mark Eager said the team loses about 10 to 20 percent of practice time from



Second Street work begins Tuesday By BEN WATANABE South Whidbey Record

Construction, and destruction, of Second Street in Langley will start Tuesday, Jan. 21. Work will begin on the north side of the road, the half which has the library, City Hall, South Whidbey Commons and the Star Store parking lot. On the eve of major change, Langley leaders are confident the

public is both prepared and informed. “What I’ve heard is that people realize it has to happen,” said Councilwoman Rene Neff. “The street being dug up has to happen, it’s all coming apart.” “In the end, when it’s all said and done, hopefully it will be a really nice project and make the city better, more walkable,” she added. Langley Director of Community Planning Jeff Arango said in an email

that visitors should not expect to park on Second Street during construction, as spaces will be eliminated during work to break up the road and replace existing utilities. The $2.2 million project is slated to last 100 working days and has a stated completion date of June 7. About $1.8 Justin Burnett / The Record

accessible, the Commons has implemented a new tool: suspended coffee. Suspended coffee is the practice of buying an extra cup of coffee

or food to leave for a person in need. The idea is based on an Italian goodwill tradition of small acts of kindness, which has taken root around the world. The Commons first heard of this idea from Shawn Nowlin, community outreach coordinator for Good Cheer Food Bank & Thrift Stores. Cheryl Sagmeister, the new executive director for South Whidbey Commons, took hold of the concept and jumped at the opportunity to implement it at the Commons. They handed out their first cup Tuesday, Jan. 7. Since then, through word-of-mouth, people have purchased about 30 suspended drinks. “We’re able to help other people who are in need for some warmth and enjoy a cup of coffee,” Sagmeister said. She said the experience has been good for the volunteers at the Commons as well. “The kids are over the moon,” she said, of their excitement. “It’s an eye opener for some of them.”

Whale Center opens wide for jaw bone

Ben Watanabe / The Record

Dave Anderson, Howard Garrett, Patrick Forrestal and Brian Iverson heft a nearly 16-foot blue whale jaw bone into the Langley Whale Center. The newly founded, free-to-visit whale history museum is scheduled to open in early March. One of the main features will be the jaw bone, said to be nearly 100 years old.

Ben Watanabe / The Record

Monte Hughes examines a nearly 16-foot jaw bone from a blue whale. The bone, owned by Hughes and his whale watching company Mystic Sea Charters, will be displayed at the Langley Whale Center, scheduled to open in March.

By BEN WATANABE South Whidbey Record One massive, hundredyear-old jaw bone from a blue whale was quite the scene in Langley on Thursday afternoon. Nine people were needed to haul the 350-pound relic from atop a truck into the future Langley Whale Center on Second Street. The bone is a long-term loan from Monte Hughes, owner of Mystic Sea Charters, a whale watching company based in Anacortes. In recent years,

the Mystic Sea has increasingly launched from Langley. Howard Garrett of the Orca Network estimated the

jaw bone once belonged to a blue whale that measured 80 feet long. The bone is being housed in the building until metal artist Tim Leonard can construct a platform for the bone to rest on and serve as an archway. The Langley Whale Center is slated to open its doors in early March.

FIRE/EMS Chimney fire does $20K in damage A chimney fire Wednesday night did an estimated $20,000 in damage to a Clinton home on Bailey Road. The fire began about 8:30 p.m. Jan. 15 after the home’s caretaker started a fire in the fireplace. South Whidbey Fire/EMS Chief Rusty Palmer said the chimney was recently cleaned, and the bricks may have been jostled and separated a bit near the ceiling. The

embers may have caught the adjoining wall on fire, though the flames were quickly knocked down by about 20 firefighters, he said. “It didn’t actually get into the structure at all,” Palmer said. No one was injured. Palmer noted that to date, the fire district has responded to more calls than it did in January 2013. So far, South Whidbey Fire/ EMS has answered 100 emergency calls, compared to the district’s average of about 150 calls per month last year. “We’re hoping that’s not a theme for the rest of the

year,” Palmer said.

State auditors leave clean report Auditors representing Washington State reported no findings and left only one minor recommendation for South Whidbey Fire/EMS — Fire Chief Rusty Palmer should initial the monthly financial reports. Palmer said he has reviewed every report since he’s been with the district, but has never left his autograph. Otherwise, it was a clean audit for the fire district. “That was a wonderful thing,” Palmer said. The district has another audit ahead, likely by the end of summer. Federal funding helped the district pay for a new radio system, its firefighter retention program and a soon to be delivered $486,000 fire suppression and marine response boat. Palmer said the audit would likely be a short evaluation of the district’s finances and bookkeeping to make sure the federal money was spent on the appropriate endeavors. “Basically, they’ll do a review, ‘You bought a boat, where is it?’ “ he said. South Whidbey Fire’s

three federal grants included: a radio system grant which was shared with Camano Island Fire & Rescue for a total of $400,000; a firefighter retention grant for $200,000 over four years; and a grant that covered 75 percent, about $356,250, of the fire boat’s nearly $500,000 price tag. The vessel is expected to come in under budget upon final delivery later this month.

NAVY EXTENDS PUBLIC SCOPING PERIOD FOR ENVIRONMENTAL IMPACT STATEMENT FOR THE EA-18G GROWLER AIRFIELD OPERATIONS AT NAVAL AIR STATION WHIDBEY ISLAND THE U.S. NAVY HAS EXTENDED THE SCOPING PERIOD FOR THE ENVIRONMENTAL IMPACT STATEMENT (EIS) FOR EA-18G GROWLER AIRFIELD OPERATIONS AT NAS WHIDBEY ISLAND’S AULT FIELD AND OUTLYING LANDING FIELD (OLF) COUPEVILLE, including the proposed introduction of two additional expeditionary Electronic Attack (VAQ) squadrons and the addition of aircraft to the Fleet Replacement Squadron (FRS). In response to public and elected official requests, and in order to ensure all surrounding communities have ample opportunity to provide input, the Navy has extended the scoping period until Friday, January 31. The scoping period began September 5, and the original deadline for scoping comments was January 3. The lengthy public scoping period was due to the fact that the scoping meetings were scheduled for December 2013. These dates were chosen to avoid possible cancellation of the meetings during any government shutdown and to avoid conflicting with P-8A Draft Supplemental EIS public meetings and comment period. These meetings were also ongoing in the vicinity of NAS Whidbey Island during the same timeframe. Public input is very important in order for the Navy to fully understand community concerns and relevant issues. Members of the public may submit comments via mail to: EA-18G EIS Project Manager Naval Facilities Engineering Command (NAVFAC) Atlantic Attn: Code EV21/SS 6506 Hampton Blvd., Norfolk, VA 23508 Comments may also be submitted to the project website: All comments must be postmarked or received online no later than January 31, 2014.

approach to economic development: employment, business development, and capital projects. The plan includes bringing people into the city to work, including those who are able to do their jobs remotely — dubbed “knowledge workers.” One part of the business development goal is to have Langley shops commit to maintaining a physical presence in town and an online presence, including social media training.

Lunch for IT, remote workers Anyone with an information technology background or who considers themselves a knowledge worker is invited to attend a city-sponsored lunch Tuesday, Jan. 28, in Langley. The mayor’s economic development sector lunch for January will be from noon to 1 p.m. at City Hall, 112 Second St. It is billed as an opportunity for people who are able to work from home or remotely to connect with others like themselves, network, receive training and for Langley leaders to share some demographic and economic information about the city.

Clinton man gets three Obituaries months for April stabbing By JESSIE STENSLAND South Whidbey Record A Clinton man who slashed his friend’s throat and stabbed him twice last year was sentenced under a plea bargain this week. Kamren F. Adams, 21, pleaded guilty by Alford’s plea to third-degree assault. An Alford’s plea means he’s not admitting his guilt, but concedes the prosecutor has enough evidence for a conviction at trial. The judge went along with the sentence recommendation presented by both the prosecutor and defense and sent him to jail for three months. The assault was reported just after midnight on April 14 at Wilson Place in Clinton. Adams and the 34-year-old victim, Justin Hilleary, had been drinking and fighting earlier in the night. Adams slashed Hilleary’s throat with a knife, cutting him from below his right ear, across the right side of his throat and down to his chest. He also stabbed Hilleary in the chest and in the forearm, causing a

wound that went all the way through his forearm, according to a report by Detective Ed Wallace with the Island County Sheriff’s Office. Paramedics transported Hilleary to Providence Regional Medical Center in Everett, where he recovered after being in critical condition. Adams was originally charged with second-degree assault, but Adams claimed self defense and the prosecutor’s case had holes. Eric Ohme, Island County chief criminal deputy prosecutor, said the victim couldn’t remember the assault and the only witness could not be located. He explained that the state had the burden to prove the absence of self-defense beyond a reasonable doubt, which would be extremely difficult with the evidence. As a result, Ohme said he worked out an agreement in which Adams pleaded to a lesser felony assault, but still calls for jail time and assures that Adams is responsible for the victim’s restitution.

Deputy nabs motorcycle suspect with ‘tase’ threat By JESSIE STENSLAND South Whidbey Record

A 34-year-old Langley motorcyclist was caught by a deputy after a short chase ended in deep gravel earlier this month, court documents state. Prosecutors charged Jason Lee Watson Helley in Island County Superior Court Jan. 8 with attempting to elude an officer. On Jan. 5, Deputy Darren Crownover with the Island County Sheriff’s Office staked out the Pioneer Park Place neighborhood, where Helley lives. He suspected Helley, who didn’t have a valid license or motorcycle

endorsement, of eluding Deputy Sean Warwick two months earlier, according to a report on the incident. Helley rode by on his motorcycle and Crownover pursued, lights flashing and sirens blaring. The motorcycle sped away on Crawford Road at speeds up to 60 mph, the deputy wrote in his report. Helley turned onto a dirt road where Warwick had terminated the earlier highspeed pursuit. But this time, Helley lost control in deep gravel and laid down his motorcycle. Helley fled on foot. Crownover pursued and threatened to “tase” him, so

Helley gave up, the officer wrote. Helley was arrested and convicted in 2004 of attempting to elude police on a motorcycle. If convicted of the recent charge, he could face from two to six months in jail under the standard sentencing range.

Editorial Letters Government HB 2319 is a step County permit lacks back in transparency process needed teeth

A bill filed in the state Legislature this week would allow school districts to cease publishing public notices for certain purposes, among them school closures, name changes and sale of surplus property. The presumption is House Bill 2319 would save districts money, but any supposed savings to local government is, in fact, a false economy. There is a hidden and very dangerous cost. In trying to save resources, school districts would curtail the public’s access to information, ensuring that fewer — rather than more — citizens know what their elected representatives are up to. The publishing of public notices in newspapers of record dates to 1789, when the first Congress required publication of its bills, orders, resolutions and votes in at least three generally available newspapers. The founders recognized that government should not be the gatekeepers of its own information. The purpose was to require government to report its actions to citizens in a medium independent of government influence or control: the newspaper. It was good policy then, and it remains good policy today. Publishing legal notices in a newspaper of record ensures that decisions related to public debt, ordinances and laws, zoning, taxation and quality of life — all matters of compelling and perpetual public interest — are made with transparency. Legal notices empower the public to get involved in the process. And it contributes to a reservoir of archived material in a form that cannot be altered, changed, hacked, hidden or manipulated after the fact. This would simply not be true of notices published exclusively online. In publishing public notices in newspapers of record, local government acknowledges that government itself carries the burden of keeping citizens informed, and that it will not shift that burden to the citizens themselves to go hunting for information. To that end, the local, general-interest newspaper remains the vehicle with the widest reach to the widest cross-section of the community. It provides precisely what government needs most — a direct and demonstrable conduit to its citizens. Should government take its information to the people, or should government make the people come looking for that information, through a maze of agency and departmental websites? We believe — and we are confident Washington citizens agree — that government at all levels has an affirmative obligation to take its information to the people — to make that extra effort, to ensure that public notices are not just “available,” but also widely seen and widely read. House Bill 2319 flouts that obligation, and it should be rejected. The Legislature had the wisdom to dismiss similar legislation in 2012, and should demonstrate that same wisdom today.

Editor, Could someone please explain to me what the building/planning department is there for. They issue permits to build and yet they have absolutely no control after the permit is issued. I have a friend who added a whole new addition, including walls, electrical work, plumbing etc.; work done by local island contractors and she never bothered with a permit. My neighbor has an open permit, and does exactly what he wants. I call, and am told they do not “police” work done. He flaunts their rules and regulations and thumbs his nose at them and is a general pain in the butt. I have talked to both the building and planning departments and those folks have always been polite, accommodating and friendly, and yet will tell you, “There is nothing we can do,” that “it is out of our hands” and on and on. What’s the point with a permit? Why bother? Kelly Emerson has proved nothing will happen if you do what you want. Oh, sure, threats of a fine ... big deal. The old adage of “It’s easier to say sorry than to get permission” sure holds true. So we pay big bucks to our county employees, who are completely ineffectual, whose hands are tied if they try to enforce regulations, so they don’t even try. I am trying hard to understand the ways of our county laws and how we are governed. Someone needs to get a grip.

Fire district volunteers deserve kudos Editor, Congratulations on your section, “Salute to Firefighters” on Oct. 30. I feel it was a real bonus for our community to put faces and names to this group of people doing extraordinary service for the South End. Congratulations also for the individual profiles before the tribute and continuing. They give a fine picture of the quality of this group’s members. I am sure they will bring new volunteers into the service. During my late husband’s declining years we had several occasions to call 911, and the calm demeanor and professional care given by fire department staff and volunteers was outstanding. Thank you for this excellent example of what makes the South Whidbey Record an award-winning newspaper. Sincerely, KAY LEWIS Langley

Perspective sorely needed for Navy airfield Editor, This letter is in response to those who want the Navy to close the Outlying Field at Coupeville. Sometimes we lose our perspective about issues. For example, I choose to live adjacent to a golf course on South Whidbey. As a result, golf balls hit my house and I sometimes have to endure summertime traffic congestion and long ferry lines. But I don’t expect the golf course to close, or the ferry system to shut down because of my decision to live here. I knew about both of those issues when I moved here. It isn’t perfect, but I love living here. I also play golf at the Gallery Golf Course at Naval Air Station Whidbey Island occasionally. Often aircraft are doing touchand-gos at Ault Field and the course is right under the flight pattern, so it gets a little noisy. But the eagles and other animals seem to pay no attention to

the noise or the planes. So apparently it isn’t about the natural environment. The A-6A aircraft with its noisy engines started operating at OLF in the mid-1960s. I would bet not one in five people can tell the difference between the sound of an old A-6A and the new EA-18 in a blindfold test. So it probably isn’t about the noise either. As an older person myself, I am willing to take the risk of being politically incorrect in saying that maybe it is about a bunch of Navy-hating older people who don’t need jobs who want the Navy to leave the island because of their lack of good judgment in moving to a place that isn’t perfect by their definition. I hope that it isn’t. But if it is, maybe some reexamination of perspective would help. Remember, there are a lot of people who would dearly love to live where you are living. And because of the military, you have the freedom to move to some place where you can find your perfection. STAN WALKER Freeland

Mayor’s beat — 2014 : A year of economic development

By FRED MCCARTHY About 20 years ago I heard a superintendent of a large school district in Arizona address a conference of educators. She was insightful, engaging and funny, and her message has stayed with me all these years. She said something that we in Langley can relate to because it involved boats. She said, “If there is a hole in the boat, there is a hole in the whole boat.” Everyone leaned forward to hear the next statement. She went on to say, “When you are on a boat, you

can’t say I don’t care if the stern goes down because where I am on the bow is above water right now.” Why is the city embarking on a year of focus on economic development? There is a hole in the boat. The boat is the economy that used to exist here. Out through the hole has poured about 500 students from our schools since 2007 and their families. They went because there was not sufficient employment to be able to afford to stay here. Most loved this place and the quality of life, but they couldn’t stay. It broke a lot of hearts to see this happen. They moved where there were jobs. What can we do? We have a choice. When you are on a boat you can either look in the wake at the flotsam and jetsam or you can stand on the bow and look out at the horizon. We can either look back at opportunities lost and/or missed or look forward to emerging opportunities on the horizon. The city council and I believe there are signs on the horizon of a red sky at night. “Red sky at morning, sailors take warning; red sky at night, sailors’ delight.” So what are some of the indicators in the evening red sky? According to one local hotel owner,

“Eight local businesses in Langley had their best year ever in 2013.” Some dedicated individuals are creating the Langley Whale Center. Do you know what the most visited tourist attraction is in the San Juan Islands? It’s a whale museum. Can you picture a turbine-powered Clipper or the Hat Island Ferry arriving at our new 266-foot lighted dock with people from Seattle or Everett? Did you know that the beautiful Mystic Sea made 60-plus whale watching trips last year out of Langley and they saw whales on virtually every trip? They plan more for this year. Did you see that Nichols Brothers Boat Builders is adding 30 more jobs in the future, bringing their work force to 250? Timing is everything. We think the moons are lining up for a banner year in 2014. Island County data predicts 3 to 5 percent economic growth. We had our best year in four years in 2013 in Langley in terms of sales tax and hotel/motel tax. We have within ourselves the tremendous power to envision and move into a more prosperous future. The most valuable resource we have here in Langley is the human resource. We have an older, more highly educated, more successful, and more optimistic demographic than almost

Sour senior night Granite Falls takes down South Whidbey at home By BEN WATANABE South Whidbey Record South Whidbey wrestling’s senior power could not overcome Granite Falls on Thursday night in the Falcons’ final home meet of the season. Despite putting seven senior wrestlers on the mat, South Whidbey fell short in a 39-30 loss to Granite Falls. Only Falcon senior Kyrell Broyles, in a 160-pound bout, won a contested match. The other four won by Falcons were on forfeits. It was a disappointing meet for the Falcons, who had hoped to win in only their second and final home meet of the year. “I was pretty depressed,” said Falcon senior Jose Chavez. “I don’t like losing in front of the home crowd, my family.” A couple of close matches broke Granite Falls’ way, including the 145, 152 and 182 classes, all of which were stalemates through much of the bout. Donnie Sutton lost the 145 in a suddendeath extra period. After tying the score at 4-4 in the third period, Sutton had two shots at trying to pin Tiger senior Riley Hansen. But neither scored a point before time expired, leading to a fourth round. Sutton shot for a takedown, but was knocked onto his back for a Granite Falls win, 6-4. “I didn’t realize the score was 2-2 until we hit the end of the quarter,” Sutton said. “It was first shot wins, I thought I had it.” The 152-pound match was a stalemate through three periods as well. Madsen held a 3-2 lead until late in the final round, when Tiger senior Tysen Campbell scored a twopoint reverse with 14 seconds left, winning 4-3. Broyles used speed to secure a pin on Tiger junior Riley Reppen in 3:32, giving South Whidbey its first victory of the night.

Wildcats ground Falcon boys By BEN WATANABE South Whidbey Record

Ben Watanabe / The Record

Falcon senior Andy Madsen tries to escape Granite Falls senior Tysen Campbell in the 152-pound bout Jan. 16 at South Whidbey High School. Chavez, a team captain, stepped to the mat with the team score out of reach for South Whidbey in the 182-pound match. The bout was marred by several stoppages for being out of bounds and for Chavez’s bloody nose. Neither grappler gained a point in the first period and they entered into the second round eager for a shot. It looked like the fight would roll into a third period until Granite Falls senior Michael Poyner rolled Chavez onto his shoulders and scored the pin in 4:00, finalizing Granite Falls’ victory.

Archbishop Murphy rained threes and forced turnovers against the South Whidbey boys basketball team Tuesday night in a 64-49 loss on the Falcons’ home court. The Wildcats forced turnovers, sunk eight three-pointers and forced a fast-paced game that knocked down the recently rejuvenated Falcons. Since the new year, South Whidbey has scored 72 and 76 points after averaging nearly 48 points per game in December through the first eight contests. South Whidbey stuck to its defensive identity early as a zone defense team that forces teams to find shots outside the key. Archbishop Murphy’s shooters were happy to oblige and sank a flurry of threes, led by sophomore guard Josh Parafina’s 18 points, including three baskets from beyond the arc. By halftime, Parafina had 15 of the Wildcats’ 31 points. Trailing 31-21 to open the second half, South Whidbey remained flummoxed by the Wildcats’ harassing defenders. On the Falcons’ first

South Whidbey’s players tried to slow the game down by attacking the hoop with dribble drives and cuts to the rim. It worked for a period as senior Brandon Asay and senior Nick French found points in the paint and at the free-throw line. But the Wildcats answered every basket with one of their own and stretched a 10-point lead

to 14 points on the third Parafina three-pointer. It was a gap the Falcons would not close for the remainder of the game. Nine Wildcats scored in the Cascade Conference game. The Falcons were led by Asay’s 17 points and junior Parker Collins’ 11. Losing to Archbishop Murphy dropped South Whidbey to 2-4 in Cascade Conference contests and 2-9 overall.

that the Yanmar engine is not putting out its full 3,5000 RPM when it’s in gear, and North Cross owner Tim Leonard said representatives from the engine company and Hamilton Jet have run diagnostics over the past week trying to identify the problem. “I’m basically held at it and ended up putting time backwards on it,” said Tim Leonard, owner of North Cross. Several other factors have also slowed progress for the first-time boat building company, which was founded by Leonard a couple of years ago. Although specializing in stair and railing construction, Leonard successfully pitched his company as the right builder for the job to fire commissioners in early 2013. Leonard touted per-


million of the project’s total price tag will be covered by federal grants. The remainder, about $420,300, will be picked up by Langley through the sale of a general obligation bond approved by the city council earlier this month. Parking is available on all other streets, at Langley United Methodist Church’s lot on Third Street and Anthes Avenue, the Island Church of Whidbey park and ride on Cascade Avenue and along Third Street. Arango recommended business owners and employees leave their cars at the Island Church of Whidbey park and ride lot to relieve parking needs in the downtown core. A minimum of one lane of traffic and pedestrian access to businesses will be maintained at all times, Arango said. There will signage at the entrances to Langley stating

sonal experience in boat building along with that of his crew, many of whom previously worked at Nichols Brothers Boat Builders. Leonard’s company was the only one to submit a bid for the boat, despite South Whidbey Fire/EMS sending specifications of the vessel to several builders. With a deadline for grant funding from the Federal Emergency Management Agency looming, the commissioners awarded the contract to North Cross. In summer, the North Cross project lead was severely injured in a collision on Highway 525, after which he was airlifted to Harborview Medical Center, and was unable to keep working. Another possible headache for the new boat builder is the welding of a name plate onto the port and starboard stern that included the

company’s name, logo and a phone number for North Cross Aluminum LLC. Federal law may restrict what can be put on the vessel, just as it has a rule to include one-inch words stating the boat was federally funded, Palmer said. “I’ll have to look and see if they allow the vendor to put that information on there or not,” he said. As of Jan. 16, the fire district did not have an estimated date of delivery for the boat. South Whidbey Fire/ EMS must have the vessel by Jan. 31, however, to claim federal grant funding, which covered about 75 percent of the new boat’s total price tag. Leonard was well aware of the contract’s late penalties, but said he hoped the fire commissioners would take into account the change orders they made and the recent issues with the engine.

Some parallel parking will be removed from the street on the north side of the road between Cascade and Anthes avenues. The reduction will allow for an expansion of pedestrian space, such as the sidewalk, and also for a small plaza-like area near Callahan’s Firehouse and the South Whidbey Commons.

He further elaborated that the document lacked the vision of former commissioners and is a setback in the port’s long-term role in economic development. There are no good ideas for how to create a living wage in the area, he said. “I spent a lot of time and effort trying to get the port in tune with what other ports do in terms of economic development,” Tapert said in a separate interview. “Now they are taking the easy way out, there’s nothing comprehensive about it (the plan).” Commissioner Dennis Gregoire tried to respond to Tapert, as the former official stood up and appeared to be leaving the meeting as he was wrapping up his comments. “This is barely cutting the surface,” Gregoire said. “The problem we got is we started some projects that, in my opinion, were way over the port’s head six years ago.” “We need to focus on things we have the money to do,” Gregoire said. Commissioners also heard suggestions to include a timeline for a few of the projects named in the document. Agreeing with the idea, Gregoire suggested creating a separate document with further information. Commissioner Chris Jerome attended the meeting via webcam from North Carolina. “I think we did a good job setting a highlevel strategy,” he said. “It gives us a good framework for any projects that might go

down the road.” The board has been working on the document for months following an open house for review in November and a public hearing just before the meeting this week. Deemed highest priority were three projects already in play: the expansion of South Whidbey Harbor, rebuilding the Possession Beach boat ramp and the installation of surveillance cameras at port and jointly owned sites. The document also includes planned improvements in district financial performance and community relations, initiatives to maximize year-round occupancy at South Whidbey Harbor, better transportation, attracting family-wage businesses and work with Island County to add an economic development element to the Island County Comprehensive Plan. The scheme also highlights several other possible projects, from analyzing the market to attract industrial and marine-related light industry, upgrading facilities at Bush Point, and providing additional opportunities for recreational kayaking and non-motorized boating at other facilities. Commissioner Curt Gordon said they did their best to get the basic elements in the planning document, including items he thought were critical such as private-public partnerships to develop opportunities and improving transportation to enhance tourism. “What we’re trying to do is open the door so when an opportunity comes along it’s in the (Comprehensive) Scheme,” Gordon said.

Track safety is a top priority for Eager. “I don’t want a $250,000 Band-Aid,” he said. “I’m scared what we’re going to find underneath.” Director Steve Scoles said he would prefer to keep costs low. A more expensive project means less money available for other needs, he said.

“I would personally like to see less spending,” Scoles said. “Because that will still last 10 to 15 years.”

Innovative artists bring new technique to Langley By CELESTE ERICKSON South Whidbey Record The floors are covered in colored canvas of past pieces and everything is on wheels for easy mobility. Stallman Studio is a place to create and connect, a true working space. This is the studio of Stephen Stum, 32, and Jason Hallman, 41, an artist duo and partners in life. As the studio’s name — a combination of Stum and Hallman — suggests, they work together in tandem to create each piece. Previously based in Seattle, Stum and Hallman relocated to Langley and opened their studio at 101 First St., Langley in October 2013. They were captivated by the beauty of South Whidbey after regularly visiting friends, and when the opportunity came, they thought, “Why not Whidbey?” Stum said. Together they created a new technique that combines painting and sculpture that has taken off and is now called “canvas on edge.” Their pieces are sold in Bellevue at Hall | Spassov Gallery and in a gallery in California. The pair has also found success in art festivals across the nation, most recently in Chicago and an upcoming event in New York. Their work is selling as fast as they can create it. The technique involves cutting large sheets of canvas into strips, which are then hand-painted on

From there, the strips are molded into patterns based on biology and gradients in nature, “almost like a kaleidoscope,” Hallman said. “There are no hard lines. It’s completely organic and never creases or breaks,” Stum said. “It’s hypnotic searching through the shapes.” The end result is a maze of curves and color, changing with each step the viewer takes. The light catches each curve in a different way, showing different sides

Stum said. “It’s still playing and the dialogue is definitely a roller coaster.” Stum and Hallman are available at the studio by appointment or “by chance,” as stated on the door, during the weekday. One of the things they enjoy most about the area is the monthly art walk. “It’s great because we can really let the work shine. And we can share, in a way, because we’re not a gallery,” Stum said.

The larger and more typical size is 4 feet by 6.5 feet, which fetch prices up to $18,000, depending on the complexity of the piece. The work is a fusion of both their backgrounds and their exploratory nature. Stum hails from a graphic and industrial design background while Hallman worked in furniture design and is an artist as well.

The march occurred in May 1963, as part of the campaign to remove discriminatory segregation laws and practices in Birmingham, Ala. Birmingham was the key to ending legal segregation and discrimination against African-Americans. Birmingham was reputedly the most rigidly segregated city in the country.

King and the Southern Christian Leadership Conference, used the weapons of nonviolent marches, civil disobedience and eco-

nomic boycotts to ultimately bring an end to the brutal racist system. The goal was to fill jails with nonviolent protestors.

The effort nearly failed due to the reluctance of adults to go to jail, as they were the family breadwinners and being jailed meant the loss of employment and other reprisals. Youths were not so restricted, however, and high school age and younger people had a new job — filling jails. This was the “Children’s Miracle.” Marching out of the 16th Street Baptist Church, the youths, maintaining a nonviolent discipline, faced with dignity fire hoses and police dogs. Through television, the nation observed both their courage and the rightness of the cause. Birmingham was eventually forced to end segregation, and the Kennedy administration was pressured into introducing to Congress what became the Civil Rights

Act of 1964. At the “Blessed are the Peace Makers” celebration Karl Olsen, the Trinity Lutheran Music Minister, will again lead the singing of civil rights anthems and Afro-American spirituals. The church’s youth choir will also perform.

Hometown Hero

Lewis: Coupon master passes on saving skills By SUSAN KNICKERBOCKER

South Whidbey Record

Ula Lewis volunteers more than 60 hours per week to teach families and single people — young and senior — to save about 75 percent on their food and toiletries, says Andréa Wright, a Clinton mom of two young children. “Ula also stocks up food in her and her husband Ron’s personal home pantry where they offer anyone to come over and help themselves for free food,” Wright said. She and her volunteer coupon angels clip, sort, organize, date, and categorize coupons and have them at the Good Cheer Thrift Shop in Langley upstairs where anyone can come to take what they want and use them to save money, Wright added. “I learned about this coupon club when my husband was laid off, and we found ourselves in financial trouble, trying to pay our mortgage and bills,” she said. “We felt we had to go sign up for food at the local food bank. This is not something we take lightly, as we feel better about ourselves giving rather than receiving.” Then they saw a flyer about Lewis’s coupon workshop. After attending, they came home with the knowledge of how to save enough money to no longer need to go to the food bank. “She also opened up her own personal pantry at her home, and offered us to take any food we wanted,” Wright said. “And if this isn’t enough, Ula also takes people to doctor appointments or cancer treatments. Ula helped us to keep our self-respect and self-worth. She taught us to help ourselves. We are

She started out focusing on just her husband and herself, but she saved so much money that they soon had every cupboard of their small single-wide mobile home stocked with food. In fact, they had so much they began inviting anyone in need to come and help themselves. “The pantry stays full even

though we keep giving it away,” she said. Then Lewis got involved with the local food bank to help them save money in their purchase of food. And the coupon club began from there. Lewis leads a South Whidbey coupon club at Good Cheer from noon to 4 p.m. every Wednesday. Sitting down with individuals and helping them plan their meals is enjoyable, she said. People are asked to prepare a pantry or grocery list of desired items, and then Lewis helps them locate the best deals on those products.

Additionally, Lewis tries to teach those receiving food assistance how to double or even triple the value of food stamps. Lewis uses her knowledge of store savings to help Langley’s Good Cheer Food Bank & Thrift Shops stock its shelves and get more for its money. For example, someone donated a $25 Safeway gift card to the food bank, and Lewis used it and coupons to purchase $134 worth of food from the store. “We try to average 75 percent off retail prices,” Lewis said. “I want to help people to help themselves

and do anything I can to help them feel their God-given self-worth. I think a lack of self-worth is a big problem in our world and the cause of much anger, depression, even stealing and harming others.” Every human deserves basic needs — water, food, shelter — and to know they have value, she added. “I can’t help the world, but I can help some in my community,” Lewis said. A volunteer crew assists Lewis in putting together food coupons and organizing them for anyone who needs them. They can be picked up for free at the Good Cheer Thrift Shop upstairs. Every coupon — tens of thousands of them — are neatly organized and in color-coded bins, making them easy to find for those who want them. The volunteer coupon crew will even snailmail them to those who can’t come in and pick them up in person. Talking with Lewis and one of her volunteers, Lois Kleparek, while they busily cut out coupons, it’s easy to see this is a labor of love. Kleparek says of Lewis, “Ula and her husband Ron live in a 12-foot by 64-foot single-wide trailer. They are not well off by any means, yet they help people whenever they can.” Ula has severe back problems, and it’s hard for her to get around, but this doesn’t stop her from volunteering, Kleparek said. “Ula and Ron have food pantries throughout their home, including in their bedroom, where they invite anyone to come over and take whatever food they need,” she said.

Have a Hometown Hero suggestion?


“Some days her back is so bad she is crawling to the food pantry to get a box of food for a needy family that haven’t transportation to come to her home.” Lewis remarks, “The food that my husband and I have we are only stewards of. We don’t ‘own’ anything we have; it’s just here on loan for us to share and give away. That is the problem with ‘things’ — sometimes people think they own them.” Lewis says she was a deep thinker as a child. She thought about life and her future often. “When I was 14 years old, a speaker came into the school auditorium and told us his story of abusing alcohol,” she said. “He said he didn’t want any of us to take his path. He was a prominent lawyer with a home in Beverly Hills, loving wife and children, and lost it all and ended up living in the streets in a cardboard box. I took his testimony to heart, and decided right then I would never have a drink. I still never have even tasted alcohol.” Lewis read the Bible often growing up, and credits her religion as a source of her strength and giving beliefs. If someone needs a hand, don’t expect someone else to do it, she said. “I like to think of the song, ‘Little Purple Pansies:’ Just one more person to gladden,” Lewis said. “I think of that as there is always one

Our words and actions are powerful on others.” Lewis said that lesson was made clear by a class her grandmother took while studying to be a nurse. The teacher told the group that together they would make the last person to class sick. When the unlucky student arrived, they all told the woman how flushed she looked and that she should see the nurse. “By halfway through the class she was sick and even had a fever,” Lewis said. “Never underestimate how we affect others; let’s make it for good.” Another full-time volunteer for coupons is Amy Hannold. She heads up the North End Coupon club, and works with Lewis’s South End group. “Ula volunteers full time every week with the coupon club, also helping the Good Cheer Food Bank save over $150,000 a year,” Hannold said. “She is an inspiration and valuable community member. She provides not only coupons and savings to all that seek it, she also mentors, encourages, and teaches

EDUCATION: Pacific High School, San Bernardino, Calif.; Scripps College, Claremont, Calif. SPOUSE: Ronald Gill Lewis, married May 19, 1967. CHILDREN: 11 — Heidi, Samuel, Lydia,

frequent classes freely. Ula and I know firsthand how tough families have it right now. We’ve seen our services become more in demand. The need has quadrupled for those seeking coupons. It’s going to take a community to keep our services going.” “We’re more than coupons, we’re ‘teaching them to fish’ instead of just handing them what they need at the moment,” she said.

What others say about Ula “Ula brings all of her gifts to the table here at Good Cheer Food Bank. Her tireless contribution goes well beyond any reasonable expectation of one human being. Her super couponing makes it possible for South Whidbey to feed its growing number of hungry families. We have begun a coupon club to support her efforts, but this has yet to decrease her full time hours of volunteer contributions.” — Karen Korbelik, Food Bank Manager “I have been volunteering for Good Cheer for over 10 years in the distribution center. I never knew how much can be done with so little money until Ula showed me. I was instantly a new recruit helping with the magic Ula performs in turning coupons into full shelves at the food bank. She has been quietly doing this for years. Everyone is

welcome into her circle of caring. Her dry humor keeps me on my toes but she keeps me grounded too. I admire her and am so blessed to be her friend.” — Nancy Whitaker, former owner of the Harbor Inn in Freeland “Ula was my first friend on Whidbey Island and remains one of my dearest. She sought me out within the first week of our moving to Whidbey and took me and my young children on a trip around town, pointing out the best places to get certain things, and the special qualities of each business in town. Ever after, she has been a supportive, constant, and caring friend. Her youngest child was the same age as my oldest. Ula passed on many wonderful and educational toys and books. She went out of her way to befriend my third child who was rather lonely with a new baby in the house. The many special dates and gifts are remembered and appreciated deeply. It meant the world to both mother and child. If Ula found a good deal she would always share her bounty with me. I always leave savoring the feast of wisdom, compassion, intelligence, and good humor that abound in her home. I love Ula Lewis.” — Marie Burnett, parent, volunteer, business owner “I learned about the couponing

club from Amy Hannold when I went online. Since I live on the South End I signed up for classes with Ula Lewis. She changed my financial life. With the savings I now know how to get, I can be self-sustaining. I wish I had met her years ago. Ula taught me how to budget in her classes, and all the tricks to living within our means. I have been able to pay off my credit card debt, feed my family, and hold my head up, and learn how to pay my bills with my job that does not pay much. She gave me hope. I was going deeper in debt, and didn’t know how to live on my salary. Ula and Amy and their coupon volunteers have no idea how much they are doing to help so many of us change our lives.” — Stacey Grand, single mom “When I first started going to Oak Harbor’s coupon club Ula was often there. I was fascinated listening to her talking about her work for the South Whidbey food bank, especially after I computed the number of hours Ula spent and continues to spend cutting coupons and shopping for good deals to stock the shelves at the food bank. So many people are touched by the results of her labor of love, getting food they need to survive and thrive, but I never saw her try to get any glory for herself. Ula is truly one of a kind.” — Shari Harrison, coupon club volunteer

— “Music; it’s always been a huge part of my life. I sang in traveling church choirs.” Advice you received growing up? — “My father told me stealing is stealing. Whether it is a stick of gum or a million dollars, it’s all the same.” What book would you like to write? — “A book for teens about a reluctant hero. My main character would not be able to do things for himself, as he keeps trying to quit smoking but can’t. But when it comes to someone else he always jumps up and does the right thing, even to the detriment to himself.”
