Republican throws in hat for Emerson’s District 2 seat

Fire destroys trailer Officials confirm none injured in morning blaze

By JANIS REID South Whidbey Record North Whidbey Republican Richard Hannold says he will run for Island County commissioner for the same reason he joined the Navy. “I feel like maybe I can make a difference,” Hannold said Friday. Hannold filed with the state’s Public Disclosure Commission to run against Democrat Karla Jacks for Island County District No. 3, the position currently held by Kelly Emerson. Emerson said in December that she will not seek re-election in 2014, citing the toll the commute has taken on her personal life. Jacks, a Camano Island resident, announced in August her intent to run. Hannold, a retired Navy chief, said he’s been “very fortunate” to have been stationed at Whidbey Island Naval Air Station for his entire 21-year career. “I love it here,” he said. Hannold said he joined the Navy relatively late in life — at 29 — because “he felt he had missed something important,” namely serving his country. Now a self-employed contractor, Hannold worked on the EA-6B Prowlers during his Navy career and has a background training new recruits on maintenance procedures. He was also elected to the Oak Harbor Christian School board and served three years. Hannold said he decided to run for District 3, which comprises North Whidbey Island and Camano Island, for two SEE HANNOLD, A14

South Whidbey ponders homeless at annual count By CELESTE ERICKSON South Whidbey Record

Will Piepenbrink and Mari St. Amand steady the hose as they douse a trailer engulfed in flames off Honeymoon Bay Road near Highway 525 in Freeland Friday morning.

By BEN WATANABE South Whidbey Record Fire ripped through and destroyed a 20-foot trailer off Honeymoon Bay Road on Friday morning. Flames licked high above the trailer before firefighters with South Whidbey Fire/EMS knocked it down, sending a massive plume of smoke stretching into the sky,

though it was mostly shrouded by a thick fog in the area. South Whidbey Fire/EMS Deputy Chief Mike Cotton said a passer-by on the Freeland road reported the flames. No injuries were reported, and the property owner was not home at the time. The greatest concern for firefighters were four propane tanks, two of which were deep inside the

blaze and not discovered until they were poking through the wreckage searching for hot spots. Cotton said the two tanks inside the trailer were charred black and “hissing” when firefighters stumbled upon them. The hissing, Cotton said, was the tanks’ pressure valves releasing SEE FIRE, A13

Congressman tours SW fire boat By JUSTIN BURNETT South Whidbey Record Congressman Rick Larsen spent much of Thursday on Whidbey Island, making stops in Langley, Central Whidbey and Oak Harbor. The Second District Democrat started off the day touring South Whidbey Fire/EMS’s new emergency response vessel. The nearly $500,000, 32-foot aluminum catamaran was built primarily with federal grant funds, which Larsen helped secure. “I think they’ve done a great job,” said Larsen, referring to the vessel’s builder, North Cross Aluminum in Freeland. “Of course the proof is in the pudding, but the

pudding looks like it’s settling quite nicely.” Larsen arrived to a contingent of awaiting fire district, Port of South Whidbey and North Cross Aluminum officials and employees. He surprised a few by stepping out of the car and into crutches. The federal lawmaker recently fell from a roof and broke his ankle. His handicap didn’t stop him, however, from hopping aboard and taking a ride on the new vessel. Powered by twin 450-horsepower engines, the boat performed nicely and brought Larsen and the throng of officials safely back to South Whidbey Harbor. SEE LARSEN, A13

For some in Island County, finding a home and a safe place to live is a struggle. The issue of homelessness on South Whidbey was front and center on Thursday, Nov. 23, at Bayview Hall during a national event to count the homeless. The event provided much-needed resources for these community members such as hot meals, toiletries and clothes for people who participated. For Tracey Corradini, 53, finding a place to stay has been difficult this month. “It hasn’t been easy,” she said before looking through the jacket rack. Corradini has been staying at a temporary apartment provided by Calvary Chapel Whidbey Island in Clinton, which is in high demand. Corradini has searched for an affordable place to stay, but has been declined because of her credit. In two weeks time her place in the apartment will be up. She will be homeless and looking for a new place to stay for herself and her three boys. “It’s tough,” she said. “But I’m not the only one.” When Corradini sees others who are homeless in the community, she wonders “What about the other SEE HOMELESS, A14

Freeland resident Barbara Guetlin is the proud owner Max, one of one of Summit Assistance Dogs’ newest graduates. Guetlin and Max’s partnership was one of eight celebrated during the graduation ceremony on Sunday, Jan. 12 in Bellevue. Max received training at Summit as a professional therapy dog and now assists Guetlin, who works as psychiatric nurse practitioner. A golden retriever, Max helps Guetlin’s clients by providing comfort and companionship during hard times. “Max brings great joy to both my clients and my co-workers,” Guetlin said in a news release.

“He gives back so much more than I can ever give him, and I am so grateful to have him.” Summit, an Anacortesbased non-profit organization, provides highlyskilled mobility, hearing and professional therapy dogs for people living with disabilities or people in need of a therapy dog. Each is trained for about two years, depending on the dog, and is provided at no cost to

Police nab off-island murder suspect after car chase By JESSIE STENSLAND South Whidbey Record A deputy with the Island County Sheriff’s Office caught an armed murder suspect after a dramatic chase down the middle of Whidbey Island Tuesday night, court documents indicate. State troopers tried to stop the stolen pickup with a spike strip near the Greenbank Store, but the suspect continued driving on the rims, causing sparks and pieces of the vehicle to fly at the pursuing police cars, according to the affidavit of probable cause. Sgt. Mark Plumberg finally got his man near Langley. The suspect, 41-year-old Joshua A. Adams, stopped and got out of his vehicle, but started pacing; Plumberg tackled him on the side of the road. A gun was found inside the stolen pickup. Island County Sheriff Mark Brown said that Plumberg and other deputies didn’t know at the time that they were chasing a homicide suspect. “It was definitely a high-risk stop,” he said. Whatcom County Sheriff Bill Elfo said in an interview Wednesday that Adams is suspected in the shooting death of Adams’ 60-year-old father, Steven Siebert, in the Sudden Valley community near Bellingham. Siebert’s body was found in his home just after 6 p.m. Tuesday. Adams appeared in Island County Superior Court Wednesday afternoon. He looked bereaved and continually shook his head as Deputy Prosecutor David Carman discussed the allegations against him. Judge Alan Hancock ruled that the state had probable cause to hold Adams on suspicion of possession of a stolen motor vehicle, possession of a stolen firearm, felon in possession of a firearm and attempting to elude. Carman asked that Adams be held on a $1 million bail with the stipulation that Whatcom County officials could transport him to face possible charges in that jurisdiction; Carman pointed out that Adams has shown he’s willing to flee from justice. Hancock agreed. Carman said that Adams doesn’t appear

According to Elfo, Siebert’s adult son arrived at the home they shared and found the body Tuesday; he reported the crime at 6:13 p.m. Siebert suffered multiple gunshot wounds. His vehicle and dog were missing. Investigators quickly determined that Siebert’s other son, Joshua Adams, lived nearby but was missing. They identified him as a person of interest in the homicide. Adams allegedly left his father’s vehicle at a gas station on State Highway 20 near La Conner and stole a black Ford F-150 pickup, according to Elfo. The owner of the pickup had two firearms in the vehicle when it was taken. At about 11 p.m., Plumberg spotted the truck southbound on State Route 20 just north of Coupeville. He pulled in behind and activated the lights and sirens, but the truck continued south at speeds from 45 to 65 mph, according to his report on the incident.

My Featured Listing of the Week

Troopers with the Washington State Patrol placed a spike strip on the highway in Greenbank. The pickup struck the strip, but traveled on the rims. “The vehicle continued southbound as sparks began to come from the rims on the

vehicle,” Plumberg wrote. “As the vehicle continued southbound, pieces of the tires began to come off the vehicle littering the roadway and striking the vehicle.” Near the Classic Road intersection, the pickup came to a stop in the middle of the road and the driver — later identified as Adams — got out. Plumberg armed himself with his “patrol rifle” and yelled at him to go to the ground. Adams paced back and forth a few feet, then jumped back in the truck and continued driving, the report states. The pickup’s rims started to come apart and sparks flew from the rear of the vehicle. Just after Maxwelton Road, Plumberg passed the truck and maneuvered to slow it. Adams tried to pass, but finally came to a stop. Adams got out of the truck and again started pacing. Plumberg ran at him and tackled him on the shoulder of the road. The dog and a semi-automatic handgun were found inside the truck, Plumberg wrote. Court documents indicate that Adams admitted having a felony history in California. Elfo said Whatcom County investigators took Adams from the Island County Jail Wednesday and booked him into the Whatcom County Jail on investigation of murder. The murder weapon was not found, Elfo said, and detectives are just beginning what will likely be an extensive investigation.

Langley leaders agreed to pay the Port of South Whidbey $14,712.52 for soil cleanup expenses that happened in October. Contaminated soil was found along Wharf Street when the city extended its waterline to the marina at South Whidbey Harbor. The project was integral to the Port of South Whidbey’s expansion of the marina which increased dock space significantly. The port requested funding assistance because the commissioners were under the impression that the earth was clean when it assumed ownership of the marina several years ago. “Our understanding from early on when we were doing the harbor transfer was that the area had been cleaned up,” said Ed Field, the port district’s manager. Nearly 124 tons of contaminated soil was excavated and disposed of in Everett, according to

invoices given to the city. Field said the dirty dirt contained high amounts of a diesel-type material, as well as a very distinct and “awful smell.” “It was all above the level that it needed to be disposed of,” he said. “Not wildly hazardous-type stuff, just contaminated.” Langley did not dispute the costs and the city council approved the payment to the Port of South Whidbey at a council meeting Tuesday. Paying for the cleanup came out of the city’s Water Reserve Fund, which had plenty of money to cover the unexpected expense. “We’ve been saving for quite a while to do capital projects,” Debbie Mahler said.

WHIDBEY WAIF hits high live-release rate Whidbey Animals’ Improvement Foundation (WAIF) had a 92.6 percent live-release rate for 2013, the third year in a row the animal shelter broke 90 percent. Live-release rates are based on the number of healthy and adoptable animals that leave shelters through adoptions, being returned to their owners, or by being transferred to a partner placement group. The goal of shelters with a life-saving philosophy is to achieve a rate of 90 percent or higher. “Achieving these numbers is due to the unwavering dedication of our staff and volunteers, along with the continued

support of our community,” said WAIF Executive Director Charles Vreeland. “Live-release numbers provide a great deal of information to show that we are dedicating resources in a responsible manner that reinforce the community’s commitment of providing a safe haven for animals. Without the support of the community, it would be difficult to achieve such numbers on a consistent basis.” In addition to finding homes for Whidbey’s homeless pet population, WAIF also has programs that support the owners of pets through spay/ neuter coupons and crisis care assistance for those who qualify, along with pet food banks to help keep pets and families together.

Neighbors remain upset with noise in, around Mo’s Pub Owner ‘sick of Langley,’ offers pub, property for sale

“They’re trying to kill a cash cow. We have not made any extra noise at all.”

By BEN WATANABE South Whidbey Record Four Langley residents reminded the city council Tuesday that they are unhappy neighbors of Mo’s Pub and Eatery on Second Street. Noise issues persist, they said, disrupting their home life and sleep, and not just on weekends. They informed the council of recurring problems with noise inside and outside the popular tavern, which is nested among several residential houses. The latest flurry of complaints is in response to a letter Langley Director of Community Planning Jeff Arango sent to neighbors. It was a notice alerting them of a recent request by bar owner Maureen Cooke for an amended ordinance that would allow more musicians to perform in the pub. “We live in a state of constant anxiety,” said Socorro Rodriguez, who added that she has regretted living next to the pub. “Over the past year, we’ve had quite a bit of buyer’s remorse,” she said, adding that she moved to Langley from Bainbridge Island to live in a smaller community. Councilwoman Rene Neff reminded the residents that the process the city was undertaking with Cooke and the pub was in a

Last year, Cooke addressed the council about changing the ordinance that currently allots six permitted amplified music performances per year, all of which must be approved by the council. Cooke questioned the ordinance after complaints that she was bending the rules with what she called low-vol-

ume amplified performances. In a May 2013 city council meeting, Cooke brought local cellist Siri Bardarson and a saxophone performer to demonstrate the difference between low-volume amplified music and loud music that did not require amplification. Cooke, who did not attend the council meeting Tuesday, said the neighbors’ complaints were wearing her out.

Whale Center gets $10K from city By BEN WATANABE South Whidbey Record The Langley Whale Center is $10,000 closer to becoming reality. On Tuesday, the Langley City Council approved a deal

“They’re trying to kill a cash cow,” she said. “We have not made any extra noise at all.” As a result, Mo’s Pub — the business and the property — are for sale. Cooke said business took a dip with the music performance restrictions. One of her bartenders attested to the same problem, especially on Tuesdays which used to have a draw for live music that he said ended by 8:30 p.m.

to contract with the whale center for economic development. Originally, the center asked the city for tourism promotion funds, but later officials deemed it more of an economic development activity, which will come out of the city’s General Fund. A total of $31,250 was budgeted for economic development by city leaders, with $11,250 going to the Langley Main Street Association and now $10,000 to the whale center. Fred Lundahl, a Langley business owner and Main Street member, applied for the funds on behalf of the center. He said the money will go toward audio-visual

“The whole thing is for sale,” Cooke said. “I’m so sick of Langley.” A couple of patrons sat at the bar shortly after it opened Thursday afternoon, ordering a pint of cider each. As regulars, they disagreed with neighbors’ assessments of the type of crowd that gathers at the pub. “Without Mo’s, there would be no point to be in Langley after hours,” said Barbara Phelps, a Langley resident. “It’s not a place people come to get screamin’-ass drunk.” Though Cooke requested the city review the ordinance and consider allowing more amplified music performances, or adding a decibel level to the restriction, the matter would go to the city’s Planning Advisory Board before being heard by the council. Arango, the city’s chief planner, said it was unlikely the planning board would amend the rules given the city council’s comments at the Tuesday meeting. “I wasn’t sensing a lot of interest from the council to make changes to the ordinance,” he said.

displays, printing and mounting of informational posters, advertising such as ferryrack cards, as well as the $7,200 annual lease for the space and utilities costs. “We’re pleased that the city saw that this can be an economic driver,” Lundahl said. The whale center got a lot of buzz after it received an initial $5,000 from Langley Main Street Association, which has an office in the building on the corner of Second

Street and Anthes Avenue. Lundahl and fellow whaleenthusiasts Howard Garrett and Susan Berta, founders of the Freeland-based Orca Network, plan to operate the whale center for free with volunteer staffing. The network tracks whales and other large sea mammals through Puget Sound and advocates for whale protection, The center is slated to open March 1.

Saturday, January 25, 2014 • The South Whidbey Record

Editorial Public service: the opportunity is now Residents in the Langley area take notice: the Port of South Whidbey Board of Commissioners is down by one and it’s your representative. District 2 Commissioner Chris Jerome resigned from his position last week for a new job in North Carolina. The offer came up unexpectedly and was apparently too good to pass up. Jerome leaves four years into his first six-year term, but he can step away proud of the work he did as a commissioner. His crowning achievement, in the eyes of The Record at least, was his role with phase one of the South Whidbey Harbor expansion project. And while his departure comes on the eve of the project’s completion, it’s a legacy that will endure nonetheless. Thank you, Jerome, for your service to South Whidbey and we wish you well. As for District 2 constituents, they remain without a representative on the three-member board, and the task of appointing a replacement is now left to the port’s two remaining commissioners — Dennis Gregoire and Curt Gordon. That may be no easy task. Elected office is a tough and often thankless job, and many of those who would serve the position best know it. The hours are long, every decision is endlessly scrutinized and pleasing everyone is an impossibility. Those challenges — and did we mention you don’t get paid — are why it’s called public service. The Langley City Council had several seats up for grabs last November, and all ran unopposed. One could argue that it was a testament to work well done, but the hurdles mentioned above were also a likely factor. Whatever the case, uncontested races are unfortunate. The democratic process is always best served when there are multiple candidates to choose from. Have an opinion about the marina project? Do you think the port can do more for economic development or beach access? Then apply for the position. Don’t wait until the right time, put your name out there. Even those not selected add to the discussion by bringing to the table ideas not previously considered. Incidentally, this is also one of the best times to seek a port commissioner seat. Rather than having to convince thousands of voters of your qualities and vision, you must convince only two. Don’t wait. The public needs to hear from you now. Langley District 2 covers from East Harbor Road to north of Surface Road including parts of Craw Road. Candidates must live within these boundaries to qualify. To apply, mail a resume, letter of interest and statement of qualifications to Port of South Whidbey, PO Box 872, Freeland WA 98249, or by email to molly@portofsouthwhidbey.com or by fax to 360-331-5414. Materials can also be submitted in person at the port office, 1804 Scott Road, Ste. 101 in Freeland. Deadline is 4 p.m. Friday, Feb. 7.

Letters Thanks

SW Children’s Center expresses gratitude Editor, The South Whidbey Children’s Center would like to take this opportunity to thank many local businesses, foundations and individuals for their support over the past year. Without your donations, grants and assistance we would not be able to offer a quality early learning and childcare program. Through your support we have been able to offer scholarships to families that are not able to pay the full cost of tuition, purchase new materials, support the local economy and ensure that the children at the center have well-educated and dependable teachers through paying livable wages and benefits. They also allow us to maintain and continue to improve our center and before/after school care program and offer professional devel-

opment opportunities for our staff and community. The South Whidbey Children’s Center has played a vital role in the South Whidbey community for over 30 years and continues to be on the forefront of early learning. This is in great part due to the ongoing support of our community. And so, it is with deep gratitude we would like to thank all of you who have supported us in large and small ways throughout the year. During 2013, the South Whidbey Children’s Center received reaccreditation through the National Association for the Education of Young Children, renovated our outdoor play yard, created an outside art studio, worked in conjunction with our public school and other early-learning programs toward aligning teaching around literacy and supporting children through Kindergarten transition, and participated in the Infant Toddler project through the Department of

LETTERS CONTINUED FROM A6

Director Martha Rose for issues concerning the agency. Presently I am campaigning for a southbound bus shelter at Ledgewood Beach, which would serve the communities of Bonair and Ledgewood. In our meeting, she stated that there is $10,000 for the bus shelter. Building permits still need to be secured from Island County and the state Department of Transportation. The length of time taken by Island County to process a permit to me is unfathomable and WSDOT is the next major hurdle. What is also unfathomable is that this is the second time the state Auditor’s Office has found the same issues. We don’t need the state Legislature to enact an exemption for the identification of vehicles, which Rose is requesting. The vehicles should be identified as state law requires. It gives credibility to the use of vehicles. The board of directors for the Island County Public Transportation Benefit Area should be looking at funding and service. Island Transit is the only public transportation in the State of Washington that does not collect a user fee. This model is fine for Island County, but brings it into competition with Skagit Transit, Community Transit and Everett Transit, who collect user fees. Let Whidbey and Camano continue with their funding model if that is what the voters want, but restrict the competition with other public transportation systems. BRIAN MARTIN Coupeville

Island Church launches new, regular evening Sunday service

Examine fundamentals of fundamentalism with Christian Science Society

Starting this month, The Island Church is introducing “The Rock,” a second service at 6 p.m. on Sundays. It will be the same message from the morning service yet with a different ambiance — a bit more relaxed and reflective. Nursery care is provided. The service will last at least one hour.

“What’s fundamental about fundamentalism?” is the topic of the next audio chat hosted by the Christian Science Reading Room at 11 a.m. Tuesday, Jan. 28, 721 SW 20th Court or log on to www.jsh-online.com/chats Fundamentalism sometimes has negative connotations but Christians labeled in this way have much in common with other people who long to know God and to do his will. They are often willing to go against popular materialism to maintain their spiritual identity and can be deeply spiritual — an aspiration many Christians share. Join this live chat with two Christian Science healers and learn more about the joys and challenges of understanding and living with fundamentalism.

Worship with Whidbey Quakers in Freeland on Sundays “We are a people that follow after those things that make for peace, love, and unity,” said early Quaker Margaret Fell. Whidbey Island Friends Meeting, also known as Quakers, holds their regular meeting for worship every Sunday from 4 to 5 p.m. at the Unitarian Universalist building, located at 20103 Highway 525, two miles north of Freeland. They meet in silent worship together; worship may include spoken messages. For details, visit www.whidbeyquakers.org or email Tom Ewell at tewell@ whidbey.com

Become aware of the powerful messages that influence our lives Unity of Whidbey will hold its regular service at 10 a.m. Sunday, Jan. 26, 5671 Crawford Road. People receive powerful messages throughout the day that influence how they feel about themselves and

the world around them. Awareness of this is very important as conscious creators of life experience. Rev. Joanna Gabriel will explore this influence and how people can empower themselves and their experience in this New Year. Barbara Dunn will provide the musical inspiration while Donna Vanderheiden will be the platform host. A new Children’s Spiritual Program is available the first and third Sundays of the month. For details, visit www.unityofwhidbeyisland.org

Find, understand truth through the teachings, practice of Jesus “Thou art near, O Lord; and all thy commandments are truth” (Psalms 119: 151). The Christian Science service will focus on finding and understanding truth as taught and practiced by Jesus at 10:30 a.m. Sunday, Jan. 26, 15910 Highway 525. “One’s aim, a point beyond faith, should be to find the footsteps of truth, the way to health and holiness” — Science and Health. All are welcome. “Truth is revealed. It needs only to be practiced” — Science and Health.

Lady Knights reign over Falcons By BEN WATANABE South Whidbey Record The South Whidbey girls basketball team lost its 11th game of the season Tuesday, falling 59-20 to King’s. Yet, something was different this time. Despite the double-digit loss, the long faces of games past were absent. In fact, Falcons’ spirits were up, with smiles seen on the bench and on the floor. By the fourth quarter, the Lady Knights held a sizable 54-14 lead, and the officials instituted a running clock as a mercy rule. South Whidbey found a bit of fight in its ranks in the final, hastened period. Lone Falcon senior Madi Boyd attacked the key with dribble drives, as did reserve Marina Alber and freshman Megan Drake. King’s was led by junior Savanna Hanson with 23 points, including three of the team’s four three-pointers. The Lady Knights made a living at the free-throw line where they made 15 of 20 attempts. South Whidbey, how-

Falcon freshman Megan Drake is fouled as she drives to the hoop against King’s sophomore Anna Parker in the fourth quarter of the girls basketball game Jan. 21. ever, only attempted six free throws and made three.

The Falcons’ leading scorer was Drake with four points.

Freshman Emily Turpin and Alber each scored three.

King’s quells upstart South Whidbey boys By BEN WATANABE South Whidbey Record The high-flying Falcons of late were brought low by the King’s Knights in a 66-32 loss Tuesday night. The point total was South Whidbey’s second-lowest score of the season. The lowest was the team’s first meeting with King’s on Dec. 10 when the Falcons mustered 31 points. And it came on the heels of the Falcons scoring more than 70 points in three of their previous four contests. Committing 19 turnovers dug South Whidbey into a hole from which it did not escape. Defensively, the Knights

corralled the Falcons into turnover after turnover and scoreless possessions. By the game’s end, South Whidbey managed to convert a meager 24 percent of its field goals. “Defensively our kids just don’t play with great effort, but the turnovers put us in a liability defensively as well,” said Falcon head coach Scott Collins in a text message. King’s charged ahead early in the game. With South Whidbey lurking after an 11-8 first quarter, King’s ran wild in the second period and held a 40-18 lead by halftime. South Whidbey’s offense did little else

in the second half, scoring six points in the third quarter and eight points in the fourth. The Knights were led by Corey Krispert’s game-high 20 points, including four three-pointers. Senior CJ Sutfin and junior Parker Collins led the Falcons with 12 points a piece. The loss secured King’s (7-1 conference, 12-2 overall) as the top-seeded 1A team from the Cascade Conference. South Whidbey will need to beat Coupeville for a second time this season Jan. 28 to secure a playoff spot in the 1A District 1 tournament Feb. 10-15.

Whidbey Reign beats Seattle United The South Whidbey Reign soccer team defeated Seattle United FC 4-0 on Saturday, Jan. 18 in Seattle. Whidbey's U-17 team dominated from the opening minute, said coach Terry Swanson in an email. Midfielder Lucas Leiberman scored the first goal within 30 seconds. Jeffrey Meier, also a midfielder, scored the second goal, followed by striker Bryce Auburn to close out the first half with a 3-0 Whidbey lead. With a significant advantage, Swanson said the Reign played "possession" soccer in the second half. The final goal was scored by Meier after he took the ball down the left sideline. Whidbey goalkeeper Charley Stelling had a bit of a slow game as the team's defense largely kept the ball away from their goalie. Through two playoff games, Whidbey has not allowed a goal. The Reign next play TUSK, a team from TukwilaSkyway that Whidbey defeated two weeks ago in a 1-0 contest. Then the Reign return home to the Sports Complex in Langley to host Seattle United FC at noon Sunday, Jan. 26 for the final home game of the season. Remaining playoff games will be played at the Starfire Complex in Tukwila.

Freeland woman takes county to federal court to save property

Sheriff’s report The following are 911 calls to the Island County Sheriff’s Office on South Whidbey.

FRIDAY, JAN. 17 8:08 a.m. — A bus driver on Bailey Road just had a near head-on collision with a green Ford pickup. 9:34 a.m. — A caller at Short Stop on Highway 525 reported a male subject making odd comments. The subject just stated “He was this close to jumping into an airplane and blowing up the United States.” 3:22 p.m. — A caller on Shadowood Drive reported a home’s door had been kicked in and the sliding glass door shattered. 6:49 p.m. — A caller reported a female riding a horse on Highway 525 was walking into traffic.

SATURDAY, JAN. 18 3:03 a.m. — A caller on East Camano Drive said she received a call from a neighbor indicating there may be someone cutting down trees on her property. 3:13 a.m. — A caller on Cultus Bay Road reported someone came to the door — a kid in a hooded sweatshirt — and tried to get in.

SUNDAY, JAN. 19 9:23 a.m. — A caller on Meerkerk Lane reported sheep in their yard and did not know who they belonged to because no sheep live on Meerkerk Lane. 5:04 p.m. — A caller on Classic Road is reporting subjects in the woods “trying to mess with him” while he’s on the porch. He advised they are running through the woods where he lives and making weird noises, throwing pinecones, etc.

By JESSIE STENSLAND South Whidbey Record A federal lawsuit against Island County has stalled over a bounced check. Freeland resident Olga Nada, who identified herself as “the chancellor in Christ of Cosmic Light Creations” and Olga Nada of the Tepes family, filed a petition for declaratory judgment against the county in U.S. District Court Dec. 10. Nada sought to prevent the county from auctioning off property owned by Cosmic Light Creations due to unpaid property taxes. The claim states that Cosmic Light Creations is a private religious organization and should have never been assessed. The lawsuit states that the chancellor in Christ and the state established a “treaty relationship” in 2002. Nada wrote that she demanded in September that the

Tests show driver in Halloween crash that killed OH twins was ‘clean’ By JESSIE STENSLAND South Whidbey Record

MONDAY, JAN. 20 9:58 a.m. — A caller on Maxwelton Road reported two men in hunting gear in their 20s with rifles or shotguns shooting near the caller’s house. The caller said they were within 200 feet of the house. 5:22 p.m. — A caller on Whidbey Woods Lane reported their child is being cyber-bullied by multiple individuals. It started after a break-up. The child’s account information has been distributed and their cell phone number given to pedophiles.

TUESDAY, JAN. 21 10:59 a.m. — A caller on Little Dirt Road advised the road’s street signs were stolen overnight. 5:00 p.m. — A caller on Andreason Road reported that someone has been putting water in her horses’ feeders.

The man accused of causing the accident that killed twin sisters from Oak Harbor last Halloween was not driving while intoxicated, according to his attorney. Toxicology results show that 53-year-old Ira Blackstock of Oak Harbor was “completely clean” at the time of the accident, Coupeville attorney Charles Arndt said this week. Prosecutors charged Blackstock in Skagit County Superior Court Nov. 6 with two counts of vehicular homicide and one count of vehicular assault. Janeah Goheen, a 17-yearold Oak Harbor resident, died at the scene of the Oct. 31, 2013 accident on Highway 20 near Anacortes; her twin sister, Janesah Goheen, was injured and passed away at Harborview Medical Center in Seattle.

Their friend, 18-yearold Alysha Pickler of Oak Harbor, suffered a concussion. Detective Craig Cardinal with the Washington State Patrol told The Record in November that troopers found no indication that Blackstock was drinking prior to the crash, but his blood was drawn after field sobriety tests showed signs of possible impairment from medication or drugs. Arndt said state patrol investigators are still looking into the cause of the accident. He said they’re trying to analyze a “black box” from the car that may have recorded his speed prior to the collision. Skagit County Prosecutor Richard Weyrich did not return a call for comment. Under Washington state law, there are three “prongs” to the vehicular homicide and vehicular assault charges. Those prongs cover driv-

county treasurer answer “seven good-faith and material questions” before she would pay the taxes, but she didn’t receive an answer. The questions were all constitutional in nature and focused on the “Federal Coinage Act of 1792.” Documents Nada submitted indicate that about $16,000 in unpaid taxes, penalties and interest were due for the property on Sundown Lane in Freeland. The property’s assessed value was $340,000 in 2013. Federal court records show that a $400 check Nada wrote for the filing fee was returned due to insufficient funds. After Nada failed to respond, the federal court judge notified Nada on Dec. 30, 2013, that she had 20 days to either pay the fee or apply to proceed “in forma pauperis,” or the case will be subject to dismissal. No further documents have been filed in the case.

ing while impaired, driving in a reckless manner and driving with disregard for others. Each prong has different standard sentence ranges; the DUI-related version is the most serious. Blackstock was charged under all alternatives of the charges. According to Cardinal’s report on the accident, Blackstock was driving his 2006 Ford Mustang south on Highway 20 from “Sharpes Corner” in Skagit County and “accelerated rapidly” as he approached the intersection with Gibraltar Road. The car, which had nearbald rear tires, broke traction

on the wet asphalt, began to fishtail side-to-side and crossed into the oncoming lane. The Mustang struck an oncoming 1993 Acura driven by Janesah Goheen just after 5 p.m. “The purposeful and reckless acceleration by Ira L. Blackstock caused his Ford Mustang to strike the oncoming Acura four-door close to the northbound fog line of State Route no. 20,” Cardinal wrote. Court records show that Blackstock was issued three speeding tickets in 2013. Blackstock’s trial date was continued to April 14.

‘Philomena’ story inspires Clinton resident’s own search for mother, history By CELESTE ERICKSON South Whidbey Record

P

atti Carroll grew up celebrating her mother and a choice she made nearly 50 years ago — to give her up for adoption at 14 months of age to a loving family in the United States. But the story she knew to be true changed three years ago when Carroll, now a Clinton resident, visited her mother’s homeland in Tipperary County, Ireland. She learned the place she was born, Sean Ross Abbey, was a place of “national disgrace” for residents where babies were unwillingly “sold to America,” as she said residents put it.

Patti Carroll looks over one of her adoption documents from Sean Ross Abbey. Through her research, she found some of the documents from that time were forged. Celeste Erickson / The Record

Patti Carroll is depicted in the right photo with her older brother Joe and a priest from Sean Ross Abbey. Both Carroll and her brother were adopted from the abbey. The abbey was operated a home where unwed mothers went to have their children and later put them up for adoption, primarily in the United States of America. Some mothers even had to work off their time at the abbey, she said. The home operated from 1930 to 1970. Carroll was given books about the subject from nearby residents, including the book “The Lost Child of Philomena Lee,” which has now been turned into an Oscar-nominated film called “Philomena.” The story follows a mother’s search for

her child who was adopted through Sean Ross Abbey. At 14 months, baby Patti was adopted through the mail to a family in San Francisco. This was the second child for her parents to adopt through the abbey, the first being her older brother Joe. “With my parents I was lucky; it was never a secret — always a celebration,” she said. “We were always told ‘Your mom loved you, but they couldn’t take care of you and they wanted the best for you so they sent you our way.’ ” Since her trip to Ireland,

These parents can be demonized and suffer a fate similar to her mother’s of losing a child. “Horrible things happen to these children, but many parents want to make it right,” she said. “They’re up against all odds, even when they’re doing their darnedest.” Carroll is still searching for her mother, and found three leads earlier this week with the same name, Anne Carroll. One was the same age as her mother, 18, when she was born. Carroll is on the lookout for any siblings she might have, as well. Carroll is also applying to obtain her Irish citizenship and hopes to travel back and forth between Ireland and Whidbey Island. She respects her mother’s privacy in her search, knowing she may never have told anyone about her time at the abbey. She said her message to her mother is that she is deeply grateful for her sacrifice. “I’m so well, thank you for giving me life and everything you had to go through to do that,” she said. “That’s all I’ve ever wanted to say — thank you.”

Terry Welch: By SHERRY WYATT For The Record Ohana. It means “family” in the Hawaiian language, and it’s how a former South Whidbey firefighter colleague described to Terry Welch what the experience of firefighting would be like. That was more than 12 years ago. “He was right, and I still feel it every day,” said Welch, a volunteer firefighter and EMT with South Whidbey Fire/EMS. “There’s a strong connection with the community, too,” she said. “That’s so important.” If the multi-faceted Welch could be described as being about any one thing, it’s being connected with the community. She has been a science teacher at Coupeville Middle School for 17 years. And the journey to that role, as well as firefighting, came from a connection of experiences spanning several years. Welch grew up in Chicago, and then went to college at Colorado State University where she earned a degree in forestry. During the summers, she worked for the Bureau of Land Management as a firefighter. “I loved it, even though it could be difficult being one of very few women on the crew,” said Welch. “Yet being outdoors and helping control fires was an amazing experience.” She also discovered she loved teaching and undertook a teaching certificate

in science education at Fort Lewis College in Durango, Colo. After completing her studies, a bit of wanderlust took over. Welch spent two years teaching in a town on the northern coast of Colombia in South America, then headed back to the U.S., landing at Northern Arizona University where she went on to complete a master’s in biology education. Although Welch loved the Southwest, she headed north to Seattle to be closer to her father. While she searched for teaching jobs, she spent time looking for spotted owls with the Department of Natural Resources. Then a Coupeville teaching position opened up and Welch moved to Whidbey Island, or “paradise” as she calls it. “I love living here, although at first I had a hard time with the overcast days,” said Welch. “But island life is great. My neighbors are awesome, the mountains are near, and it’s a rural area with a big city nearby.” Occasionally, work and volunteering coincide, like the time Central Whidbey Fire and Rescue worked with Coupeville Middle School to stage a flash mob for students, showing them how to perform hands-on CPR on mannequins, all to the beat of the Bee Gees song, “Stayin’ Alive,” which matches a life-saving rhythm. All middle school students were then trained in their science classrooms that day

It’s not all work and volunteering for Welch. She is an avid bicyclist and has taken several seven and 10-day trips throughout the western states. It’s not unusual for her and her friends to go out for a “short” ride of 30 miles. Welch enjoyed a threeweek safari to South Africa last summer. The trip was organized by Global Exploration for Educators and was geared to teachers. She traveled through Botswana, Zimbabwe, South Africa and Mozambique.

Welch says South Whidbey Fire/EMS is a great organization. The training, structure, codes of conduct and teamwork really appeal to her. She encourages others to volunteer, and to not let age, gender, fear of making mistakes or current lack of skills keep you from trying. “You need a willingness to learn,” said Welch. “And the skills you gain are invaluable. You’ll know how to handle emergency situations in ways that protect you, your family and neighbors.”

There he passed out a healthy round of handshakes and posed for a few pictures before zooming off for his next appointment. While Larsen’s visit was brief, lasting about one hour, South Whidbey officials were grateful he took the time to see the vessel in person. “We very much appreciate federal funding with this project,” Fire Chief Rusty Palmer said. “This boat wouldn’t exist without it.” “Everybody in the U.S. paid for this boat, which takes the whole burden off local taxpayers,” he added. The money came from a Federal Emergency Management Agency, or FEMA, grant. The Port of South Whidbey was the primary applicant with the fire district being a partner/beneficiary. Port officials were having trouble securing the grant funding and contacted Larsen’s office for help. The congressman agreed and it wasn’t long before the port got its money, and the fire district its boat. Larsen said urban areas have received the lion’s share of related grant funding and that he was happy to help a small rural agency get a piece of the pie. Palmer also noted that the fire

prospects of federal funding for later phases of the South Whidbey Harbor expansion project. “We don’t have a lot of dough,” said Gordon, in a later interview. “If we’re going to build this, we’re going to do it with grant funding.” Larsen didn’t make any promises, but did encourage the port to apply for grant funding, Gordon said. Tim Leonard, owner of North Cross Aluminum, was present at the showing, but declined to comment. While the boat has been finished and in the water for weeks, a few remaining hiccups with some of the vessel’s equipment, such as dialing in the engines, have prevented the fire district from taking possession of the vessel. According to Palmer, the fire district will do a check-off list inspection this weekend and he expects to take official possession sometime next week. The boat’s name is being decided with a contest at South Whidbey schools. Once it’s selected, the winner and their family will be invited aboard for a ride and the vessel will be christened in a public ceremony. At that time, the public will also be allowed to tour the vessel. “It’s their boat,” Palmer said. “The fire district is the steward, but the public is the owner.”

itself, which quickly collapsed after emergency responders arrived around 8:30 a.m. “With these things, there’s not much radiant heat to worry about,” said Chief Rusty Palmer, crediting the wet, cold, windless conditions for aiding their battle with the small but fierce blaze. The cause of the fire remains unknown.

Firefighters Kim Boenish, Sean McDougald, Will Piepenbrink, Lt. Mari St. Amand and Will Suarez responded to knock down the fire and search the wreckage for flare-ups and any possible victims. Cotton was the fire district’s incident commander at the scene.

people?” “We need to find a place for people to live,” she said. “Homeless people aren’t just dirty or drug users — they are families.” Corradini’s struggle and others were heard loud and clear during a discussion portion of the event. More than 40 people attended, including volun-

teers and the homeless. Community members from several organizations such as Good Cheer Food Bank and Thrift Stores, Opportunity Council, Island County Department of Human Services, Whidbey Institute, Whidbey Island Nourishes, The HUB, Readiness to Learn, Family Resource Center and Whidbey Institute joined in the conversation to come up with solutions. Judy Thorslund, a vol-

unteer with Good Cheer, attended the event and said she was hopeful something will grow out of the newly-formed group, named South Whidbey Homeless Coalition. “One is too many,” she said of the number of people who are homeless on South Whidbey. Thorslund said she would like to “change the picture” of poverty on the South End by using resources from people who care. Charlene Ray, a mental health supervisor with Island County Human Services, said she was excited to see this effort at a grassroots level. “It’s a community issue,” she said. “And it’s an issue we all have to get involved with.” Ray said she heard ideas ranging from building a hospitality house to providing temporary shelter. This was the first year the county department participated in the event. Three other locations held similar events throughout the county. The Opportunity Council hosted the count for the past 10 years.

Joanne Pelant, housing resource coordinator with Island County Human Services, was also on hand to gauge the issue. “I learned the issue is very complicated community-wide,” she said. “In order to begin a solution, many different parts need to come to the table.” She said the homeless face a range of issues when finding affordable housing including felonies, bad credit, health issues and prior evictions, which can lead to being locked out of options for housing or employment. “We need people in the community to come forward,” Pelant said. Pelant hopes to see resources from landlords, or people who may have an extra room who are willing to rent to people who need it, she said. The national count will be finalized later this month. On South Whidbey 17 people were counted throughout the day. “I’m really grateful for this community,” Pelant said. “Especially this group trying to organize. In the end it’s a community issue.”

reasons. First, Hannold said he doesn’t “like the direction politics are going” in this country. “You’re supposed to speak for the people you work for,” Hannold said. “These people don’t work for you; you work for them. A leader listens to his people.” Second, he said he didn’t want to see yet another election proceed with an unopposed candidate. “I wasn’t going to let Karla Jacks run unopposed,” Hannold said. “We should give people a choice.” Even though he’s a registered Republican, Hannold said he won’t necessarily follow party lines when making decisions. “If the majority say this is the way it should be, that’s how I’ll vote,” Hannold said. “I think I might bring a lot of common sense and reason that the military breeds. That way we can get things moving along.” Hannold referenced the Island County commissioners’ spat in 2013 over who served as chairperson. Emerson was granted the

Hannold role of chairwoman in July, only to be stripped of the title a few months later for disregarding board consensus. “Why is it important who the chair person is?” Hannold asked. “You should be talking about issues.” Not planning to raise much money for his campaign, Hannold said he’s looking at “going at this old school” by knocking on doors and talking to residents. Hannold said he’s not as familiar with Camano Island as he’d like to be, but by Nov. 4, he plans to be very familiar with the concerns and ideas of residents throughout District 3. Emerson said she believes District 3 is a “conservative district” and that constituents will “continue to enjoy conservative representation.” “We can’t afford big government — I hope people are seeing that,” she said.
