Gallion gives up the gavel Angler and fishing legend sets sights on new fishing grounds
SW parks ranger finds body on beach By JESSIE STENSLAND South Whidbey Record
Ben Watanabe / The Record
Mike Gallion has stepped aside from running The Fishin’ Club, a group of anglers that discuss fishing techniques, gear and stories every month on South Whidbey. He founded the club and ran it as the president for 25 years.
By BEN WATANABE South Whidbey Record These days, lifelong leisure angler Mike Gallion is off the hook. After founding and running The Fishin’ Club for 25 years, the 69-year-old Bayview man has stepped down from the position of president, saying it was
time to let somebody else run the show. “The best thing I could do for the club is stay out of their way,” he laughed. In his stead, Kevin Lungren was nominated as president, and Mike Price as vice president of the fishing fellowship. On Thursday, Feb. 6, they celebrated Gallion’s last night as the official
president. Lungren said the club, with an official membership of about 90 — each membership is for a family, so the numbers can reach up to 200 — plans to present Gallion with a custom-built rod at a later meeting. It’s not like Gallion, who SEE GALLION, A13
State court turns down SW murderer’s appeal By JESSIE STENSLAND South Whidbey Record
James Huden sits in court during his 2013 murder trial. He lost an appeal this week.
A judge did not err in giving a South Whidbey High School graduate and convicted murderer more than double the standard-range sentence because his victim was wearing a seatbelt and had “an unsuspecting mindset” when he was shot, the Washington State Appeals Court ruled this week. James Huden is in his sec-
ond year of an 80-year sentence for shooting and killing Russel Douglas in a secluded area of South Whidbey Dec. 27, 2003. A jury found Huden guilty in 2012 of first-degree murder with a firearms enhancement as well as an aggravating factor. Douglas was “particularly vulnerable,” or more vulnerable than a typical victim of first-degree murder, Island County Prosecutor Greg Banks
explained. Vulnerability of the victim is one of several “aggravating factors” that allows a judge to sentence a defendant outside the standard sentencing range. Douglas was particularly vulnerable, Banks argued, because he was wearing a seatbelt inside his car, was lured to and ambushed in a remote SEE HUDEN, A16
An employee with State Parks discovered a body on the beach outside of his state-owned housing near Possession Point State Park on South Whidbey Thursday afternoon. The body was tentatively identified as 35-year-old Brandon Smith of Clinton, according to Island County Coroner Robert Bishop. Bishop said the autopsy is set for Saturday. He expects to positively identify the body and possibly identify the manner of the man’s death, though any toxicology testing will take more time. Bishop said there were no obvious signs on the body that would indicate a cause of death. The Island County Sheriff’s Office is working with Bishop to investigate the death. “Foul play is not suspected at this time,” Detective Rick Felici said. Smith was last seen Tuesday morning as he was going to work, Bishop said. The senior park aide reported finding the body at 2:31 p.m. Thursday, Feb. 6. “We’ve got some huge holes to fill in,” Bishop said. “This could turn out to be just about anything.” Bishop said the body, which was fully clothed, came in with the tide. Smith’s vehicle was found at the nearby park. According to Smith’s Facebook page, he was in the class of 1997 at Carlisle County High School in Bardwell, Ky., and the class of 2000 at Paducah Technical College in Paducah, Ky. He listed his professional skills as “carpentry, landscaping and painting.”

Langley residents celebrate 70 years Bill and Martha Martin of Langley are celebrating 70 years together this Valentine’s Day. The couple met at a dance on Thanksgiving evening in 1939 at the Wagon Wheel Dance Hall, in Santee, Calif., a suburb of San Diego. During intermission he bought her a piece of homemade apple pie a la mode and a cup of coffee. He spent fifteen cents for the treat. Bill was a hospital corpsman stationed at the San Diego Naval Hospital, with a salary of $21 a month. Four months after their first dance they were performing around San Diego at fraternal clubs, dancing professionally. Bill was transferred to the USS Tennessee, and is a Pearl Harbor survivor. He also served with the Second Marines in the South Pacific. Martha spent the war years dancing with various USO — United Service Organizations — groups, up and down the California coast. After a year and a half apart, Bill called Martha one day saying he was in San Francisco. He said they would have ten days to get married and check into Navy headquarters in New York. The Martins have been Langley residents since 1976. Bill celebrated his 95th birthday on Dec. 9. They have a daughter, Gennie, and a son, Terry, both Langley residents;
and seven grandsons who are scattered between Puget Sound, San Diego and Japan. Making an appearance a month early, Feb. 2, was their first great-grandson,
Sesson Richard Martin, just in time to become a 12th Man, Seahawks fan. He is the fifth generation oldest Martin son to bear the middle name, Richard.

Port commissioners restructure staff, look to future By CELESTE ERICKSON South Whidbey Record Port of South Whidbey commissioners will implement a series of staff changes next week. During the special meeting Tuesday, Feb. 4, the commissioners announced Dane Anderson, a former financial manager with the port, will return as a consultant to help the port survey and reassess the needs of the existing facilities. Anderson will then aid commissioners in defining the job descriptions of district staff. The commissioners’ end goal is to restructure staff duties and create a new lower-level position to focus on maintenance and operations, and an executive director position combining the financial director’s duties and general operations. They hope to hire a maintenance and operations person in May and combine the duties of the executive position by the end of the year. “We have too many missions and not enough specific staff to fill them,” Commissioner Curt Gordon said. After working through the Comprehensive Plan and Strategic Plan this year, it became apparent to the commissioners that restructuring was needed. Port Operations Manager Ed Field will step down from the full-time position and shift gears to an in-house construction manager focusing on the South Whidbey

Operations Manager Ed Field looks on during a Port of South Whidbey meeting last year. Field will continue working on the South Whidbey Harbor expansion project through the public opening in April. “I’ve enjoyed working Harbor project. “The port is moving in here and am looking fora different ward to direction, wrapping and it’s up the projunderstandect,” he “I’ve enjoyed working added. able,” Field here and am looking Field will said. forward to wrapping up c o n t i n u e Field has in the posiworked for the project.” the port for tion of conEd Field, s t r u c t i o n 10 years Port Operations Manager and said manager he doesn’t through the know if he completion will return and public for any of the opening of port district’s positions. the harbor, scheduled some
time in April. Gordon said the expansion project required a lot more time from the employees than anticipated.
“We could see it was difficult for an individual to run a project of that size and still be a facilities manager and deal with separate consult-
ing and permit issues,” the commissioner said. Gordon hopes with each future project to hire a construction manager on a case-by-case basis instead of tapping the resources of existing staff, he said. The harbor expansion and the oncoming project at Possession Point provided “a window of opportunity” for the restructuring, Commissioner Dennis Gregoire said. Gregoire, who has previously worked with port districts, noted this is a common framework used around the state. “We’re trying to assess the environment in which we are operating and what’s the best arrangement of resources,” Gregoire said. The commissioners will continue to work out the duties of each position in the next few months as Field wraps up his time with the port. The next regular meeting will be at 7:30 p.m. Tuesday, Feb. 11 at the South Whidbey Parks and Recreation office, 5475 Maxwelton Road, and includes public participation.

Langley’s Public Works department will flush the water system Feb. 10 and 11. It was originally scheduled for Feb. 5 and 6, but was delayed because of freezing temperatures earlier this week. Fire hydrants will be opened, and the city encouraged people to stay away from the water and any open hydrants. Water pressure may drop a bit as the city flushes lines near residents’ homes. There may also be a temporary discoloration of the water, though a city notice states there will not be a health hazard from the water.
If the water is brown, flush the system by running cold water in a bath or an outdoor spigot until it runs clear. The notice also recommends draining the hot water tank if water is discolored. Also, check washing machines for any discolored water. Call the city at 360-2214246 with any questions.
FIRE/EMS Protection rating improves Insurance holders within the South Whidbey Fire/EMS protection district should see a change in their insurance rates in the next few months. The district recently received an upgrade in its protection rating from a Class 7 district to a Class 6. “It affects every single person who owns property in the fire protection district,” said Chief Rusty Palmer. “Going up one point is sometimes pretty hard to do.” Exactly what impact it will have on homeowners and commercial property owners was not known, said Palmer, as the possible savings will depend
on the property and the insurance company. During an evaluation by the Washington Surveying and Rating Bureau last year, South Whidbey Fire/EMS demonstrated improvements to its department and water supply. The district owns five water tenders that can draw thousands of gallons of water from any number of more than 400 water hydrants around South Whidbey, including those in Langley. In a previous rating inspection, the district missed out on points for its use of water tenders, Palmer said, as the bureau wanted more water hydrants. This time around, the district sufficiently demonstrated its water tender capabilities. “We’re able to have an adequate supply of water within minutes,” Palmer said. Palmer added later, “Over the next months and year, folks should see a change to their insurance for the better.” The volunteer fire protection district operated with about 85 volunteers last year and six paid staff: a chief, assistant chief, two deputy chiefs and two administrative assistants.

Drive carefully; our lives are in your hands By JUSTIN BURNETT
My first car was a white, 1983 Chevy S-10 pickup. I paid $1,500 for it and that was too much. It was a heap. It leaked and burned oil so furiously that it seems now I spent as much time filling the oil reservoir as I did the fuel tank. The worst offender was right above the exhaust manifold, which resulted in most of the oil burning off before reaching the ground, but it was still something of a rolling version of the Exxon Valdez. The leak did have its uses, however — as soon as the smoking stopped, I knew it was time to fill her up. Admittedly, as a 16-year-old kid I wasn’t too easy on the ol’ gal. I spent more time hot-rodding than I did with maintenance, and my truck paid the price. To say I rounded her corners would be kind. Hard lessons were learned, and unfortunately, some of them at the expense of other drivers. Today, armed with the infinite power of retrospect, I shudder at the memory and marvel that the only casualties were a few fenders and my tender pride. My poor victims all survived. Being in the news business, regular reminders of those days are all too common and Thursday was no exception. I reported on two South Whidbey car accidents. Thankfully no one was killed, but two people — one from each incident — were taken to the hospital. Responding to such emergencies is always a bit unnerving. Along with not knowing just what you’ll see, and I have a few images I would like to forget, in a small community there is a chance you’ll know the people involved. How our island’s first responders cope, I’ll never know, but they have earned my respect and my thanks. They have been an especially busy bunch this year. South Whidbey Fire/EMS officials report the fire district alone responded to 180 calls in January — about 30 more than average. The vast majority of those ranged from fire and medical calls to marine and cat-in-tree incidents, but too many were car accidents. Except for a few rare cases — incidentally one of Thursday’s two — car accidents are almost always avoidable. They are the result of moments of inattention, poor judgement, or just plain recklessness. May we all take a moment this week before starting our vehicles to ponder our responsibility as drivers and weigh the consequences of our actions behind the wheel. May the vision of a beat-up, old and smoking Chevy pickup be your reminder.

Editor, We are all linked together in figuring out how to increase jobs that pay living wages in Island County. Having all Island County departments be open at full-time levels is a very important step in meeting the needs of our recovering economy. When the county only works at 4/5 speed, that negatively affects our local economy each and every week. When the county closures linger for several years, the economic problems multiply.
A few weeks ago, I decided to compare Island County’s “Friday furlough days” to all Washington state counties. I called all 39 counties, including Island County. Island County is the only county with a majority of departments closed on Fridays. Only two other counties have any reduced hours or closures in 2014. Island County has 18 departments that do not work 52 Fridays per year. • Island County: 18 departments closed on Fridays. The current Island County website shows a total of 24 departments, with only six open on Fridays (clerk, district court, human services, juvenile court, prosecutor, and superior court are open). Even the sheriff’s department is not open on Fridays. • Jefferson County: one department closed on Fridays. Planning and community development is closed on Fridays. All other

departments are open. • Kitsap County: two departments closed on Fridays. Treasurer and assessors offices are closed on Fridays. All other departments are open. Most of the counties did not have closures in 2013, let alone 2014. A few people laughed at the survey, which I phrased as a survey on Washington counties to see which may have budget/ furlough closures in 2013 or 2014. Really, some laughed. Some were just astonished at the question. We’ve all heard about the multiplier effect of how a dollar moves through a local economy and grows. Dollars that do not get spent because citizens get tired of the waiting due to a lack of hours in a week to do county business cause major damage to our local economy. The need for this county to get back to work is urgent. LEANNE FINLAY Freeland

F EER KICK-OF
Two people involved in two unrelated car accidents on South Whidbey were sent to the hospital Thursday. According to the Washington State Patrol, James Harris, 33, and Kristi Etzell, age unknown, were both transported to Whidbey General Hospital. A hospital official confirmed that both were treated and released the same day. The first accident occurred on Bayview Road at about 8:30 a.m. Harris was northbound in a Jeep Cherokee and approaching Howard Road when his vehicle veered across the opposing lane of traffic and into heavy brush and trees. South Whidbey Fire/ EMS officials said a witness traveling in the southbound lane reported the vehicle appeared to swerve for no apparent reason. “We suspect he had a medical condition that caused the accident,” Deputy Chief Jon Beck said. An ambulance crew arrived on the scene and pulled the man from the vehicle, and he was then transported to Whidbey General Hospital. Washington State Trooper Norm Larsen said Thursday the official cause of the accident was still under investigation and that no citations had yet been issued. He said Harris’s registered address is Langley. The second collision

Sultan spoils South Whidbey ’s senior night Briefly Turks take down Falcon girls hoops
By BEN WATANABE South Whidbey Record Finishing with a flourish, Sultan’s boys basketball team pulled away late to put a damper on South Whidbey’s senior night Tuesday. The evening was filled with South Whidbey ceremony. It started with a recognition of the team’s eight seniors before the game and continued at halftime as the school and players honored the late Henry Pope. The team’s coach, Pope died suddenly from heart complications in July, 2013. For all the bravado of the evening, South Whidbey fell flat late as Sultan surged, leading by as many as 12 points in the fourth quarter and fighting off an attempted Falcon comeback. South Whidbey looked to give Sultan (8-4 Cascade Conference, 11-7 overall) a run early in the contest. With a couple of minutes left in the first half, the Turks forced three turnovers. They converted those possessions into only two points, but were able to secure a lastsecond offensive rebound and hoist a buzzer-beating three-pointer. While the Falcons settled into halftime for Pope’s honoring, the Turks took to the locker room with a 38-33 lead. Pope’s family was presented with a blue basketball jersey with “Pope” stenciled on the back and

sparked the Falcons out of the break. Falcon senior CJ Sutfin made a three-pointer, followed by a defensive stand and a reverse layup by junior Parker Collins that cut Sultan’s lead to one point. Each team traded baskets, neither gaining an advantage beyond a single possession through the first five minutes of the third quarter. But the Turks broke away from a one-point deficit on a 15-4 run. Sultan stuck to its formula of driving to the hoop to take the lead, while South Whidbey struggled against the Turks’ zone defense. By the final quarter, South Whidbey trailed 62-52. Feeling a sense of
urgency, the Falcons hurried some three-point shots and charged to the rim in the final three minutes. Falcon senior Brandon Asay scored 12 of his 17 points in the final period. Collins chased down his own missed shots for a pair of layups that brought the deficit to single digits. But the Turks stuck with their plan and broke through the Falcons’ pressure defense, leading to an emphatic dunk by senior Giovonni Williams, who scored a game-high 30 points. After not attempting a free throw in the first quarter, Sultan’s aggressive play paid off as the Turks finished with 13 points on 17 free
throws. Losing to Sultan did not affect South Whidbey’s playoff position. The Falcons are poised to travel north for a rematch with the Meridian Trojans (6-5 Northwest Conference, 10-9 overall) at 7 p.m. Monday, Feb. 10. In the first game of the season, back on Dec. 4, Meridian beat South Whidbey 59-43 on the Falcons’ court. Since the new year began, South Whidbey’s offense significantly improved to average 63.9 points after struggling to reach 50 in December. Meridian, however, has hovered around 52 points per game all season, while allowing opposing teams to score nearly 54.
Struggling mightily, the South Whidbey girls basketball team fell to Sultan 52-21 on Tuesday. The Turks took the wind out of the Falcons early. Sultan gained a 19-7 lead by the end of the first quarter. Then the Turks outdid their performance with a 20-0 second quarter stretch. South Whidbey regrouped a bit in the second half, scoring eight points in the third quarter and six points in the final period. But the Turks held onto their cushy lead behind 12 points from leading scorer Payton McGuire and nine from Shelby Jeffries. Falcon senior Madi Boyd led South Whidbey with six points, as did junior Abby Hodson with six points. South Whidbey was eliminated from competing in the District 1 playoffs after losing to Coupeville on Jan. 28 for the second time this season.
Wrestlers prepare for postseason Four South Whidbey wrestlers are poised to advance past the 1A District 1 tournament Saturday, Feb. 8, without ever setting foot on a mat. The district-wide field, which includes teams from Blaine, Mount Baker, Friday Harbor, Meridian and Nooksack Valley has several weight classes not fully fielded with eight grapplers. The top four advance to the tri-district tournament, also called the regional round. “It’s going to be a quick tournament because there’s not a lot of kids in some of the weight classes,” said Falcon wrestling coach Jim Thompson. Falcon wrestlers Seth Schille, Beck Davis, Trevor Miller and Pierce Jackson are all moving on in weights with four or fewer wrestlers. Senior Andy Madsen is the top ranked 145-pound grappler. He may have tough competition, however, as the second-ranked wrestler is teammate Kyrell Broyles.

Land trust rebuffs COER, keeps Navy money Schools’ Dine Out Wednesdays kick off on South Whidbey By JANIS REID South Whidbey Record
The Whidbey Camano Land Trust will continue to accept Navy money to acquire land within Ebey’s Reserve, despite a request from jet noise opponents to sever the relationship. Citizens of Ebey’s Reserve, or COER, asked last month that the Land Trust cease using Navy funds until the ongoing Environmental Impact Statement on the EA-18G Growler is concluded. That’s expected to take about 17 months. COER has criticized the noise levels of the Navy’s touch-and-go operations at Outlying Field Coupeville, which is surrounded by residential homes and shares a property line with Ebey’s Landing National Historical Reserve. COER offered to give a presentation in January to the land trust board about the proposed moratorium on Navy funding, but were denied. “The board appreciates COER’s offer of an in-person presentation, but found it to be unnecessary,” wrote president Lenny Corin last month in a letter to COER member Maryon Attwood. The board voted unanimously to “continue to use Navy funds to accomplish its mission” protecting the island’s natural resources. Corin goes on to state that the nonprofit organization “does not engage in political, partisan or regulatory matters.” Pat Powell, executive director of the Whidbey Camano Land Trust, said that the Navy’s involvement in land trust acquisitions is very small and that the board is unclear why COER made its request. “They made a very big issue out of a very small matter,” Powell said. “We don’t understand why they tried to involve us in their issue.” Of the 65 projects completed by the land trust since 2003, which involved 7,230 acres throughout Island County, only 247 acres or 3 percent included Navy funding. COER President Michael Monson said that his group pressed this issue on

Seven restaurants have teamed up with the South Whidbey Schools Foundation to raise funds for classroom grants by encouraging residents to “Dine Out Wednesdays for SW Schools” during February and March. “The program encourages people to support South Whidbey Schools by eating at specific participating restaurants on Wednesdays – a traditionally slow day during the slow winter months of February and March,” said South Whidbey Foundation President Chris Gibson. “We see it as a win-win effort for students and local businesses.” A portion of each restaurant’s net profit from that day will be donated to the Foundation to fund innovative, teacher and staff-requested classroom projects. The Foundation has given out more than $150,000 in classroom grants since it began in 1994. “We have a good cross section of restaurants that have agreed to participate in the program, so there are lots of choices for diners. People can dine in or order take-out food during each restaurant’s hours of operation,” said Susie Richards,
co-chairwoman of the Dine Out Program. Retired educator Jean Shaw is also a co-chairwoman and will appear in a short online video to promote the program. Participating restaurants include: Gordon’s On Blueberry Hill, Cafe Langley, Mukilteo Coffee Roasters Café in the Woods, Freeland Café, Mo’s Pub and Eatery, Hong Kong Gardens, and Patron Mexican Restaurant. “Our hope is that South Whidbey residents will visit a different participating restaurant each Wednesday during the months of February and March,” said Richards. “We encourage participants to be sure to mention to their servers that they came to support the Dine Out Wednesdays for Schools program, as it will help both the restaurants and Foundation gauge the effectiveness of the program. The South Whidbey Schools Foundation is a 501c-3 non-profit organization dedicated to supporting innovation and excellence in the South Whidbey School District.

and a huge heart. He was also a man of the finest values. Even right toward the end of his life he felt that so long as his mental faculties allowed, his duty was to help, especially the underdog. Three weeks before his death, he helped the Liberian government and received a letter from the Liberian minister. “I want to assure you that the people of Liberia will remain eternally grateful to you for what you demonstrated today, in spite of your personal condition, you made the sacrifice to show up when we really needed you and you ensured that the interests of the people of Liberia were well served,” it said. Very shortly before his death he appeared in a long-running case involving communities badly hit by pollution from an aluminum smelter. Robin’s evidence was considered so vital to the case that the court came to Langley to hear him in person and to have the opportunity to cross-examine him directly. Robin was also a man of great generosity of spirit. Time and again he mentored and was unstinting with his time. Robin worked this summer throughout his illness on the Langley Ethics Committee where a code of ethics was drawn up. Robin liked to be in the company of others, was a great conversationalist and raconteur; he had a broad-ranging curiosity. He travelled in his work to 92 countries. He was a proficient skier and loved to ski the

Mildred (Potter) Barger
On Jan. 22, 2014, Mildred (Potter) Barger passed away peacefully in the company of family in Biloxi, Miss. Mildred was 79 years of age, born in Frankfort, Tenn., July 17, 1934, one of 10 children to Clarence and Mamie (Cook) Potter. Millie grew up in rural Tennessee surrounded by family and relatives, in a lifestyle close to the land and nature that many of us would envy in our modern times. She often spoke of how her parents would preserve meats, fruits and vegetables on the farm, and it was hard for Millie to see an apple or blackberry go unused. After Millie raised her two daughters, she put herself through nursing school to become an R.N. Upon retirement, Millie enjoyed many travel adventures including a cross country road trip with her sisters Nona and Elna. With Elna, Millie traveled to Israel and Egypt, and cruised through
the inside passage of Alaska. Millie and her daughter Cookie backpacked through the Yucatán Peninsula, went snorkeling in Belize and trekked through the Tikal Ruins in Guatemala. Millie, Cookie and Elna walked the Incan ruins of Machu Picchu and explored textile markets in Ecuador. After Hurricane Katrina, Millie moved to Whidbey Island to live with her daughter Billie (Cookie) and Billie’s husband, Richard. On Whidbey, Millie made many new, wonderful friends and once in a while won the pot playing Pinochle. Millie was close to her grand-dogs especially Angie who slept with and protected Millie every night. Near the end of her life, Millie returned to the warmth of Biloxi to be close to her daughter Debby. In Millie’s last days, Debby and her husband Ramon lovingly cared for her. Millie is survived by her one brother and two sisters, her daughters, Debby Steybe and sonin-law Ramon, of Gautier, Miss., and Billie Risa-Draves and son-in-law Richard, of Whidbey Island, Wash., along with two grandchildren, two great-grandchildren and many loving nieces and nephews. Millie had a very close and loving relationship with her daughters Debby, Cookie, daughter/niece Sharon Stewart and her BFF Jeni. Millie will be dearly missed for her gentle charm and warm friendship by her family and many friends in Biloxi and the Pacific Northwest. “I’ll wait no more for you, like a daughter, that part of our life together is over. But I will wait for you forever, like a river.”

Albertsen said people can dance as much or as little as they are comfortable with, “as long as they wear red.” Three more rehearsals will take place before the event at 6 p.m. Sunday, Feb. 9, and at 7 p.m. Tuesday, Feb. 11, and Thursday, Feb. 13 at Island Dance.

Langley resident Sumer Eberhart plans to dance in the flash mob for the first time this year. She sought out a One Billion Rising event as a survivor of sexual abuse and as a mother.

After speaking out about her own story for the first time, Eberhart said a lot of women she knew came to her with similar experiences. Eberhart found a lot of encouragement within that group and hopes to be able to provide the same support for women and girls on the South End. “Young women can be in violent relationships, not understanding what’s happening,” she said. “And there are lots of young women out there.”

owns an estimated 60 rods, needs another, so he planned to donate it back to the club so it could be raffled off as a fund-raiser. “Mike, as an angler, is much like Mike in life; he doesn’t take anything too seriously,” Lungren said, adding: “He didn’t name it the ‘Catchin’ Club.’ “ Like all anglers, Gallion has plenty of fishing tales. That’s what happens after a lifetime spent angling in Washington and Alaska, and 25 years running the Fishin’ Club. There’s the story about strapping a 2.5 horsepower Sears, Roebuck & Co. Elgin boat motor to a 10-foot rowboat so he could motor around Mutiny Bay as a young boy. Or the time he set a record for fly fishing in 1998 when he landed a 14 pound, 12-ounce chum salmon in Alaska. Then there was the time he was salmon fishing in Alaska and stopped a charging brown bear in the middle of a river just by loading a shotgun slug. Of course, he says after taking a sip of black coffee at his Bayview home the same one he grew up in as a teenager - his best story is of the fish that got away. Many years ago, he was fly fishing in Juneau, Alaska
went out a few times this past fall during the pink salmon run. Mostly, he came home empty-handed. Gallion, who is legally blind because of presbyopia, is also known as a champion competitive pistol marksman. Using .22-caliber pistols, he has spent more time lately at gun ranges than fishing holes. He drew similarities between his two hobbies in that they require focus, the ability to settle one’s adrenaline and nerves and lots of time. Whereas good shooting takes time on a range, good fishing takes time on the water. “People ask, ‘When’s the best time to go fishing?’ When you can,” Gallion said. With his two businesses in computer repair and commercial equipment repair, he will be plenty busy. But now that the club is in someone else’s hands, Gallion may have time this year for more fishing.

and in a float tube. Something struck his lure in a saltwater lagoon — “fish on,” as anglers holler — and rolled on the surface. The sight of the salmon had him and others with him swearing it to be a 50-pound king salmon. At the mercy of the fish’s strength and will, he floated along the top as the salmon towed him around the lagoon. “You could see the wake of my swim fins,” he said. The fight lasted more than three hours, and in the end the hook wore through the fish’s mouth. Fish off. “Even at the time, I think the fish and I were both glad to be rid of each other,” he laughed. Catching fish has never been the point of the club. Subsistence fishing has its place, he says, but mostly people need to take angling as an outdoor experience: a time to work on a craft, like casting, trying flies, playing a fish.

location, and had no reason to suspect he was going to be shot through his car window at point-blank range. “Russel Douglas could not duck, run, or deflect Huden’s aim,” Banks wrote in his brief to the appellate court. “Even fish in a barrel can swim and potentially avoid a fatal encounter with a bullet. Russel Douglas was more vulnerable than that.” In his sentencing memorandum, Banks wrote that Huden and his mistress, Peggy Sue Thomas, carefully planned the murder so that Douglas could not resist; he speculated that they wouldn’t have gone through with the killing if they hadn’t been able to carefully control the situation. Thomas was originally charged with murder for allegedly helping Huden lure Douglas to the out-ofthe-way area, but pleaded guilty to rendering criminal assistance under a plea bargain. She was sentenced to four years in prison. Banks recommended an
Convicted murderer James Huden arrives in court in 2013, shortly before his conviction by a jury. He lost an appeal in state court this week. 80-year sentence for Huden, which was just over 48 years beyond the top of the standard sentencing range Huden would have faced without the aggravating factor. Judge Alan Hancock agreed and handed out the exceptional penalty. Huden appealed his sentence, arguing that there was insufficient evidence to support the finding of particular vulnerability. He also appealed his conviction
on several grounds, including an allegation that Banks committed misconduct. Huden’s attor neys argued that Douglas was not particularly vulnerable to a sudden gunshot wound to the head. They argued that, “the suddenness of such an attack would prevent any victim from resisting.” In an unpublished opinion, the Court of Appeals threw out Huden’s argu-

Yet while Banks “crossed into the realm of personal opinion,” the defense didn’t object, the misconduct wasn’t flagrant and he backed up the assertion with evidence, the court ruled. Huden has 20 days to file a motion for reconsideration with the appeals court and 30 days to file a petition for review with the state Supreme Court.

NOTICE Washington State law requires wood sellers to provide an invoice (receipt) that shows the s e l l e r ’s a n d b u y e r ’s name and address and the date delivered. The invoice should also state the price, the quantity delivered and the quantity upon which the price is based. There should be a statement on the type and quality of the wood. When you buy firewood write the seller’s phone number and the license plate number of the delivery vehicle. The legal measure for firewood in Washington is the cord or a fraction of a cord. Estimate a c o r d by v i s u a l i z i n g a four-foot by eight-foot space filled with wood to a height of four feet.

Saturday, February 8, 2014 • The South Whidbey Record
Vermilion flycatcher captures our hearts, imaginations
WHIDBEY BIRDING Frances Wood My husband and I recently returned from a month of birding in and around the city of Oaxaca, Mexico. It’s in a high, dry valley in South Central Mexico where the native habitat is described as thorn scrub. One of the most common little flycatchers is also a brilliantly colored bird, the aptly named vermilion flycatcher. On our first morning there we spotted this ruby red ornament perched on a bare branch, and I stopped in my tracks to admire it. Similar in size and shape to our house finch, the 6-inch flycatcher sat horizontally, red head and breast reflecting the strong Oaxacan sun, black mask and wings setting off the dazzling color. The bird glanced from side to side, tilting its head and occasionally raised a short

A vermilion flycatcher perches atop a bare thorn branch. Record columnist Frances Wood calls the bright-red avian the Valentine bird. crest to further sparkle in the sun. I like to think of this flycatcher as the Valentine bird, not only because of the shining red color, but also because, even in the winter months, this species is usually found in pairs. The female, a brownish counterpart with a pale salmon-colored belly, was likely somewhere near by. The locals call this bird “bien viaje” — literally good travel — but often simply translated as the good luck bird. The bird was facing me, which, according to Oaxacan lore, is a very good omen. If the bird is turned with its back to you showing its dark
wing feathers, however, bad luck could be in the offering. Flycatchers are constantly scanning their surroundings for flying insects and they tend to keep an eye out for big mammals like people, so nine times out of ten, the birds are looking your way and good luck is bound to follow you. Birds are among the most popular animals used in mythology and are the source of countless superstitions and allegories. Life, death, luck, and love have all been tied to the tail-feathers of these winged marvels. In Western European culture many birds are linked to bad omens. The owl’s ominous hoot, for example. The term
given to a collective group of crows is a “murder” of crows. Thanks to Alfred Hitchcock, flocks of blackbirds are frightful. Some birds have more benign symbolism. We know that doves represent love and peace and are a savior of humanity. Eagles embody strength, swiftness and majesty. Robins suggest joy. The return of swallows symbolizes spring. All valued assets, I admit. But where are the “good luck” birds in our culture? For sailors, a sighting of the cumbersome albatross was considered a harbinger of good luck. But when was the last time you saw an albatross and how many of us

are sailors? There is the old saying that it’s good luck if a bird defecates on you, but I see that as more annoyance than evidence of good fortune. Years ago the ivory-billed woodpecker, a large showy bird of the southeastern United States now assumed to be extinct, was called the “Good Lord Bird.” But that reflected the amazement of anyone lucky enough to catch a glimpse of it. A bluebird seen in spring is a lucky sign to some. But I’m looking for a bird that one could encounter any day of the year. Something bright and delightful to see. A species of bird that will immediately lift your spirits, chase the clouds away and turn you into a bird watcher over and over again. Any nominations? Seriously, I’d like to hear from you.
Later during our month in Oaxaca some Whidbey Island friends came for a visit. They love to hike, but weren’t bird watchers. One morning we set off on a fourhour trek along a dusty road between two villages several miles from Oaxaca City. One of the first birds we saw was a bright male vermilion flycatcher. I forced binoculars into my friend’s hands and helped her locate and focus on the bird. The moment she caught sight of that bird, she gasped and couldn’t put the binoculars down. I’m pretty sure that one look turned her into a birder. And the next time I see her I’m going to ask how her luck has been recently. Frances Wood can be reached at wood@whidbey. com.
