hristine Eborda walked out of Albertson’s grocery store to a big pink surprise Saturday afternoon. The Oak Harbor resident, who was diagnosed in November with stage VI cancer, was treated to a flash mob performance to Pharrell’s “Happy.” The dance was coordinated by her sister Terri Guster. The mob, comprised of more than 30 dancers, was

decked out in various shades of pink in support of breast cancer awareness. Guster said she decided to coordinate the dance “because there’s times when (Eborda) is feeling really down.” “We chose it because it’s a happy song … and I want my sister to be happy no matter what,” Guster said.

An Oak Harbor robbery victim ended up hiding in a ditch after an unusual encounter March 2, according to court documents. Jaquan R. Wilson, 26, the alleged would-be robber, was charged in Island County Superior Court March 5 with attempted robbery in the second degree. The victim was walking home at about 3 a.m. when he noticed two men in front of him. One of the men, later identified as Wilson, stopped and asked the man if he was following them and if he was a cop; the man denied both

accusations, according to the police report. Wilson then allegedly told the man to give him everything in his pockets. When the victim refused, Wilson allegedly threatened to beat him up, the report states. The man fled and hid in a ditch on Northeast Seventh Avenue. He called 911 on his cell phone. The officer found Wilson in the area and detained him. Wilson claimed he was walking home from a downtown bar and that he was the one who had been attacked, the report states. Wilson allegedly blew 0.184 on a portable breathalyzer.

New clerk-treasurer hired in Coupville By MEGAN HANSEN Contributing Editor

Coupeville resident Kelly Beech joined the staff at Coupeville Town Hall last week. Beech is the new town clerk-treasurer, replacing Judy Thomas, who retired this month. Mayor Nancy Conard said Beech is used to being in an environment where she has to know a lot of different things. While new to town hall, Beech is no stranger to the community. Having moved to the island 22 years ago, Beech has been a steady worker in the Coupeville School District for 10 years. BEECH She has held such positions as the secretary of the Cedar Program, which served as a home school support program; a transition specialist helping students coming back from juvenile detention; a technology teacher at the Cedar Program; and most recently a fiscal assistant. She said there was a time when she held all of those jobs at once. Beech said she applied for the town position because it was similar to what she was doing with the school district, but with higher responsibility. She said she’s always looking at moving forward. Her first day on the job was last Wednesday. “I can’t wait to get into it,” she said. “I’m looking forward to working more with people in the community and working with the mayor.” “She does such great things, I can’t wait to work with her.” Beech has two children, one grown and one an eighthgrader in the school district. Her husband is a former Island County Sheriff’s deputy who is currently assisting the City of Langley’s police force. Paid Advertismetnt I recently retired; moving 1,000 miles away from everything familiar. If that wasn’t challenging enough, my 87 year-old Mother said, “I’m coming with you!” Now I was taxed with numerous and crucial questions . What about her medical issues? Still being somewhat independent, and often quite picky, where would she be happy yet safe ?My requirements were that her new home be in a safe location; have a high staff-to-resident ratio; and that someone would be available and involved enough to answer my daily inquires. (Did she get to her meals? Is she socializing?, etc.) Mom’s requirements were - “Is the new place pretty? Are we close to shopping? I want to do as much as I can by myself!” Of the many choices - our decision was evident. SUMMER HILL. Summer Hill met our requirements for a long time. When we had an occasional problem resolving it became a team issue involving ALL of us. Can it get better than that ? Yes. It can. Little did we know that the staff at Summer Hill would become, in the future, a collection of “Angels on Earth” that made my Mom’s passing an event of such dignity. Despite a history of strokes, the staff at SummerHill were ever vigilant to note “differences” in Mom’s behavior. So, when one day “things didn’t seem right” - they sent her to the nearest hospital.When the local hospital failed her and services were not readily availableto us - Summer Hill stepped up and served as Hospice for my Mom until the day she passed.The Director, Leslie Burns, helped me navigate the intricacies of the medical system. She knew what to do and how to get it done! There are many fantastic care-givers at Summer Hill. There were at least three women that went above “the call of duty” - simply because they really, really cared for my Mom. Margie, Laura, Ashely and of course, Leslie, are exceptional human beings. We remain forever grateful.

With respect, Terry Kay Serpa Steve Gauger

Orthodontist’s sweet tooth benefits Girl Scout troop By RON NEWBERRY Staff reporter

Sometimes, the smallest things can bring out the biggest smiles. Such as when Sheryl Dunn places a small sign on her desk every January. The sign announces that Gardner Orthodontics is looking to buy Girl Scout cookies. Lots of them. For an Oak Harbor business that is built around helping create beautiful smiles, this move manages to draw instant ones. “They’re so excited,” said Dunn, treatment coordinator at Gardner Orthodontics. “They kind of expect it now. They love it. They look forward to it.” Joel Gardner has been an orthodontist in Oak Harbor for 15 years. For the past five, his office has turned into a cookie closet after he decided to help local Girl Scouts’ cause. This year, Gardner ordered 500 boxes to help kids with their goals, with many cookies bound for U.S. military personnel as part of “Operation Cookie Drop.” The remaining shipment came last week to his office on Maylor Street, along with thank-you notes.

Ron Newberry/Whidbey News-Times

Girl Scouts deliver cookies at Gardner Orthodontics in Oak Harbor. Front row, from left to right, are Mia Farris, Vivian Farris, Ciandra Allen and Allesandra Courson. In middle row are Kimberly Schmidt, Elizabeth Norman, Beatriz Mosquera, Kate Norman and Katerina Courson. The back row is the Gardner team of Alicia Solano, Jen Griffith, Joel Gardner, Anika Mirante, Brandy Moore and Sheryl Dunn. “It’s just a sweet thing,” said Dunn, who spearheads the project for Gardner. Gardner and his office staff of nine work at their Mount Vernon office three days a week and come to Oak Harbor only on Thursdays.

It’s a routine that started 15 years ago for the 43-yearold orthodontist who’s from Walla Walla and attended Gonzaga University before heading off to Oregon Health & Science University. Gardner is from the same 1990 Walla Walla High School class as childhood friend and former NFL star Drew Bledsoe, with whom he remains in touch. In an attempt to give back to the communities in which he works, Gardner and his staff try to help various causes, including Girl Scouts and the American Cancer Society. When a patient requests a pink band to go with his

or her braces, a color that symbolizes breast cancer awareness, Gardner makes a donation to the American Cancer Society. “This is what I love to do,” Gardner said. “Orthodontics is what I get up for every morning and I’m happy. I have a big smile on my face to come to work. We work with a lot of kids and this is something that we’re able to make a huge change in their self image. To be able to witness that and be a part of that is really special.” He is sure that cookies in moderation won’t hurt that smile. “Who doesn’t like Girl Scout cookies?” he said.

County to unroll online Sedro-Woolley resident permit tracking portal charged with loader theft By JESSIE STENSLAND

By JANIS REID Staff reporter

In a few months, Island County residents will be able to track application permits online. In about six months, residents will be able to complete their applications online as well. Island County staff members began training this month on SmartGov, a new browser-based software program that the public should have round-the-clock access to in about three months, according to Planning Director David Wechner. Permit applications currently must be made in person and by appointment at county offices in Coupeville and on Camano Island. “For Camano and anyone who lives in a far flung part of the county, this is a good thing,” Wechner said. “This is the ability to access us remotely and find out what’s going on with a permit without having to come to Coupeville.” SmartGov is an upgraded version of the software called Interlocking, which is currently used by the county. Wechner said the county purchased Interlocking at the end of its support life in 2011 with the upgrade to SmartGov in mind. The software and training will cost the county approximately $24,000. In addition to permit application and tracking, residents will be able to request

inspections and download documents. The software contains a GIS mapping component as well. “You’ll be able to open a map, click on a permit and see what’s going on,” Wechner said. Elements of public works and public health department services will also be trackable online by staff and the public. The intention is to improve efficiency by allowing staff to more easily create permit documents, make notes on each application and populate “to-do lists” for inspections and application tasks, Wechner said. “What it’s going to allow is better tracking of permits as they come into the system,” Wechner said. “The reporting functions are better than what we have now.” Island County Commissioner Helen Price Johnson was a proponent of getting the new software to better address the county’s permit workload. “The county needs to get better in this area,” Price Johnson said. “It is my goal for the county to improve the current process for permit review to make it both more effective and efficient in use of county staff time, and make the process more predictable, transparent and customer service-oriented for our community.” During recent discussions about reopening county offices on Fridays, Price

Johnson mentioned that the SmartGov software will address some of the workload bottleneck and serve as a key component in easing that backlog. “Opening on Fridays without these improvements could have the opposite effect and negatively impact the current permit review process,” Price Johnson said. “SmartGov is an important investment because it creates an improved platform for the county’s permit processing. By having a web-based system, staff from multiple permitting departments can access and work on applications simultaneously.” Both Interlocking and SmartGov are products of Poulsbo-based Paladin Data Systems, which was established in 1994. Paladin staff will be working with Island County staff through next week to ensure they are comfortable with the software. Paladin staff will be assisting Island County in the transfer of data between the two softwares. Paladin will also create a few custom calculators for Island County to simplify routine functions, according to the contract. These include modules to calculate the mitigation fee for Holmes Harbor Basin, the health department franchise fee, the SEPA fee, proration, late fees and liquid waste.

Prosecutors charged Franklin Smith, 46, in Island County Superior Court March 6 with felony harassment, malicious mischief and two counts of fourth-degree assault. The assault and malicious mischief charges were filed as domestic-violence-related counts.

End of two-month session brings bevy of new legislation THE PETRI DISH

By JERRY CORNFIELD As the two-month legislative session came to an end last week, there are still dozens of bills still to be sent to Gov. Jay Inslee for his signing in the coming weeks. Not every piece of legislation earns a headline. Here are a few that have and have not. Maximum Funblock for Minors: Teenagers are barred from using tanning beds unless they have a prescription from their doctor for a few doses of artificial sun. And if you look 17 or younger, prepare to show a photo ID in order to use the equipment. LEFT TURNS ON RED: It’s going to be legal for motorcyclists soon. If a motorcycle does not trigger a traffic light to change and the rider waits through a full cycle of the signal, he can run it. NO PEEKING: Unmanned aerial systems, AKA drones, will keep flying overhead. But city, county and state law enforcement agencies can’t equip them with an “extraordinary sensing device” to track people below for an investigation without a warrant. VINO TO GO: Growlers aren’t just for beer drinking. Owners of Washington wineries will soon be able to sell growlers and kegs of wine at their tasting rooms. Customers can also bring in their own growler for a fill up. GIN AND TONIC, HOLD THE RUMMY: Nonprofit senior centers can soon add Happy Hour to their list of daily activities. Centers can obtain a liquor license to sell spirits, wine and beer every day as long as they offer some food service. Until now, centers needed to buy a special occasion license if they wanted to sell booze at a specific event. KEEP YOUR PLATES, PLEASE: The requirement to replace license plates every seven years is ending. Now, plates will change when the ownership of a vehicle changes, although the new owner can apply to keep them. AND SPEAKING OF PLATES: Backers of breast cancer research and Seattle University will be able to SEE CORNFIELD, A7

Submarine destruction statue not best choice Editor, We were disappointed to learn that a piece of sculpture depicting the

destruction of a submarine has been selected for Oak Harbor. We have spoken with many people and have not found one who thinks this is appropriate for a town frequented by Navy families. Many of us have had friends and family members serving aboard submarines and many more will in the future. We hope the council will reconsider and select a piece of art everyone can fully enjoy. Blair and Bill McDaniel Oak Harbor

Is Kraken really right image for Oak Harbor? Editor, Have the arts commission and the city council really decided to go ahead with the Kraken sculpture for downtown Oak Harbor? I am all for public art and I agree that what is decided upon should be unique and a draw for the area, but somehow a sea monster attacking a submarine doesn’t seem to be the right image for a Navy town. Surely we can do better.

Power cost is state’s ‘golden nugget’ GUEST COLUMN

By DON BRUNELL

Normally, you wouldn’t think the cost of electricity would clobber ranchers, but in Hawaii, high power rates are the central competitiveness issue. In fact, the owners of the mammoth Parker Ranch on Hawaii’s big island have calculated their “per cow” electricity costs. Much of the famed ranch’s 130,000 acres is rich grazing land on a high plateau between Hawaii’s twin 13,000-feet volcanos. Parker Ranch is one of the nation’s largest beef producers, with much of its product sent to the mainland. The ranch has an extensive water system with large reservoirs, water tanks and troughs, but much of the water must be pumped. That’s where the electricity costs come in. Parker’s electricity cost per calf is $40 per year and rising, compared to $12 for its competitors. Parker runs about 17,000 head of cattle on its ranch, meaning their annual electric bill is about $680,000. In Waimea, the small town where the Parker Ranch is headquartered, the electric bill for the town’s 33-bed community hospital was $1.2 million last year, compared to an average $350,000 on the mainland. The Hawaiian Electric Company (HEC) predicts that Hawaiians, who currently pay $160 per month, will pay $300 a month by 2020 and $1,200 per month by 2040 unless things change. In 2009, more than 90 percent of Hawaii’s electricity was generated by imported oil that is distributed to refineries and power plants on the island chain by boat, barge and truck because, unlike other U.S. states, Hawaii has no pipelines or railroads. Not surprisingly, electricity costs in Hawaii are the nation’s highest, while we enjoy some of the lowest. Today, Hawaii is making a concerted effort to install solar panels and wind turbines and tap into the volcanos’ geothermal potential. Even with this emphasis on renewables, HEC

CONTINUED FROM A7 I wasn’t able to get on the agenda, but I believe all of us can support a request to include in the plan identification of public beach access points. I am a resident of Island County, yet I get confused when I try to locate public access points to our shoreline where my grandson and I can go dig in the sand. I know from the book “Getting to the Water’s Edge” that there are many public access points in Island County. I also know that many points are not in the book and not clearly identified. I ought to be able to know without difficulty the locations of all of my public beach access points. Identifying these points with signage is the first step. The signage does not have to be huge, such as the very small signs along the path from the Sunnyside Cemetery

reports that over the next decade more than half of Hawaii’s electricity will come from oil or perhaps liquefied natural gas, if that is allowed as a replacement fuel. Writing in a local newspaper last fall, Parker Ranch CEO Neil “Dutch” Kuyper noted, “We’ve analyzed the local food and local beef situation and it is clear that success depends on an energy decision. For the ranch, energy is our single most volatile cost and it hinders our ability to be competitive. Energy costs squeeze our margins. “We also discovered that increases in energy costs for residents in our region outstrip their incomes and force them to make cutbacks and tradeoffs.” In other words, the price of electricity is getting so high in Hawaii that residents are forced to cut household spending in order to pay their electric bills. What the Parker Ranch is experiencing illustrates the importance of the low cost, abundant, reliable electricity that we are blessed with in Washington because of our extensive hydroelectric system. Our electricity costs are well below the national average, which keeps our industries and businesses competitive and provides affordable energy to homes, schools and hospitals — and many of our farmers and ranchers pump water to irrigate their land and maintain their livestock. Abundant water and low cost power is our state’s gold nugget. As our elected officials look to the future and work to expand our economy, grow our tax base and create jobs, they need to be mindful that energy costs are a major expense. Unfortunately, we really don’t know the impact of those costs, because in 2008 our government stopped including the cost of food and electricity in the Consumer Price Index. But if you consider what is happening in Hawaii, it doesn’t take a rocket scientist to see that the cost of electricity is a key cost driver for all of us.

in Coupeville to the bluff at Ebey’s Landing. These signs are small, yet do the job. They tell me, and they signify to property owners in the vicinity, that I am walking on a public right-ofway. Clear signage not only helps me know where to go, it helps me when I am in conversation with a landowner who may be misinformed or simply isn’t knowledgeable about any particular public access point. Signage is missing from many locations, which are in fact road ends, and/or otherwise public access points. We must be accountable to all our residents. Everyone is better served — the walking public and the landowners in the vicinity — when beach access points are properly identified. Elisa Miller Clinton

OBITUARIES

Hart

Marion ‘Lee’ Hart

Marion Leland “Lee” Hart, 77, was called to the Lord on March 12, 2014, at his home in Coupeville, surrounded by his loving family. Lee was born December 31, 1936, in Edgemont, S.D., to Marion and Iris Hart. He was raised as the son of a railroad depot manager, living in Gillette, Monarch and Sheridan, Wyo. He attended Sheridan High School and graduated from Campbell County High School in Gillette in 1955. Following high school, Lee worked for a time at Standard Oil while attending college. He began a 30-year career in the U.S. Army when he enlisted in 1957. In 1962, he married Aloha Gaylord in Casper, Wyo. Lee’s career took a major turn in 1966 when he was commissioned as an officer in the U.S. Army. His military service took him to Japan, Korea, Vietnam, Germany and numerous assignments across the U.S. He transferred to the Army Reserves in 1972 and retired on Dec. 31, 1996, as a lieutenant colonel. When Lee left active duty, he worked for a time as an IRS agent and subsequently returned to the University of Wyoming, graduating with a Bachelor of Science degree in accounting.

He then began a second career in business, working for Bank of Commerce/ First Interstate Bank in Sheridan from 1981-1985. His next position was with Provident Federal Savings and Loan in Casper, and then a major move to Washington state where he worked for Sterling Healthcare Services, Bellevue, for 12 years. In 1999, Lee accepted a position at Everett Community College as an IT Technician and worked there until his retirement in 2004. In addition to his full-time positions, Lee also operated his own small business as a tax consultant, accountant and computer technician from 1985 to 2012. Lee and Aloha began looking for a quieter place to live and discovered a home in Coupeville in 2000. They spent their final working years commuting to the mainland while enjoying the quieter life of the island. Throughout his adult life, Lee was an active member of several Lutheran churches, including Concordia Lutheran Church in Oak Harbor. Wherever he went, he willingly and joyfully sang in the choir, served in leadership roles and assisted with facility upkeep. He also served as a former trustee of Hearthstone Retirement Community of Seattle. Not willing to sit idly in retirement, Lee found new interests. He became a docent at the Admiralty Head Lighthouse, a Waste Wise volunteer and served on the Board of Lighthouse Environmental Programs. He enjoyed woodworking, reading, music, travel and spending time with his family. Lee is survived by his wife Aloha of Coupeville, three children and their spouses: Ross and Sherry Hart of Tunkhannock, Pa.; Patrick and Amy Hart of Kirkland, Wash.; and Jeff and Marianne (Hart) Lohr of Baltimore, Md. He is survived by sis-

ters Judy Christensen, Melanie Palluck and Sarah Trowbridge and nine grandchildren: Dan, Kris, Alyssa, Geoffrey, Ashleigh, Kelsey, Griffin, Emma and Henry. He was preceded in death by his parents, sisters Gladys Williams and Marianne Gunsolus and brother James Hart.

LOOKING UP

Oak Harbor’s soccer success rises with senior class

By JIM WALLER Sports editor

They put in the time and suffered through the growing pains, now they are ready to reap the benefits. The Oak Harbor High School soccer team is rising up the Western Conference standings, and at the core of the ascent is a dedicated and talented senior class. Seniors Steven Hall, Alexander Krantz, Ben McCornack, Andrew Mitchell, Chase Muller, Caley Powers, Daniel Ross, Kevin Silveira and Gavin Stewart will lead the Wildcat charge this spring, and being at the front of the attack is nothing new to the group. Six class members lettered as freshmen. That’s an unusually large number for any team and especially rare for a 3A school like Oak Harbor. Playing in the powerful Western Conference, the youngsters took their lumps while posting a 2-14 record in 2011. The following year the mark was just a tick better, 3-12-1. Those lowly records weren’t new to the Wildcats, which last qualified for a district tournament in 2002, and that was the only appearance since 1994. Last spring things changed. Oak Harbor won eight matches, going 6-6-1 in the Wesco North and finishing second. That earned a trip to the district tournament where the Wildcats proved they were ready to compete with anyone. In the first round, Oak

Back row, left to right are Gavin Stewart, Ben McCornack, Chase Muller and Daniel Ross. In front are Kevin Silveira, Alex Krantz and Andrew Mitchell. (Not pictured, Steven Hall and Caley Powers.) Harbor upset eighth-ranked Shorecrest 2-1 in a shootout. The Scots survived the loss and marched through the losers’ bracket all the way to the state finals. In the 3A championship game, Shorecrest lost 1-0 to Bonney Lake. After defeating Shorecrest, the Wildcats gave fifth-ranked Shorewood all it could handle before falling 1-0.

The Oak Harbor seniors said those matches did two things. First, it convinced them they could play on equal terms with any team; and, second, it announced their arrival among the area’s top teams. Last year’s club lost several key players to graduation, most notably captain Matt Jensen, but five players –

Harbor has to overcome one bugaboo, away matches: “We need to be more consistent on the road.” Oak Harbor won only three matches away from Wildcat Memorial Stadium last season. The success of the group isn’t by accident. Their work ethic and friendship have accentuated their natural talents. Seven are willing to sacrifice time and pile up miles by playing off island when not competing for the Wildcats. A sprinkling of players from past graduating classes made this commitment but “not the majority like us,” Krantz said. Then there is their camaraderie. “We were all friends before high school,” Krantz said. “Four of us played on the same youth team.” “We hang out together; we chill out together on the weekends,” Stewart added. Silveira pointed out another element the group has in common, academic success. Seven are honor students. Krantz added that the same qualities they use to be successful in the classroom carry over to the soccer field. Oak Harbor High School coach Brian Thompson said, “Most of these players have been playing club soccer at a high level which helps our team. These boys are very good students with high grades and ambition to do something in their lives. Most importantly they have a drive to win.” And those wins should come this season.

JJ Abides finished fourth in physical strength ironman, while Unarmed Team Commander Jozef Mendoza earned seventh and Armed Drill Commander Amanda Simpson ninth. “Overall, the drill meet went very well,” Thiel said. He and Commander Mike Black, senior naval instructor and coordinator of the air rifle competition, received numerous positive comments on how well the meet was run and on the success of the Wildcat Battalion, Thiel added. Parents volunteered to help run the event and marines from CNATTU, sailors from FRC NW, airmen from the Air Force recruiting district and soldiers from the Army National Guard and Army recruiting district volunteered as judges.

Coupeville rallies to stop Falcons Good teams overcome in-game problems by taking advantage of opportunities. Such was the case for the Coupeville baseball team in its 8-4 win at South Whidbey Monday, March 17. The Wolves struggled on offense but used a good defense, a solid pitching performance by Ben Etzell and aggressive base running to flatten the Falcons. Etzell, who threw a complete game, had only one hiccup, the third inning when South Whidbey bunched four hits for three runs. After the third, Etzell limited the Falcons to three singles; two were infield hits.

The Falcons hung onto the lead until the fifth inning. “Up to that point their pitcher pretty much stymied us, keeping us off balance with a lot of soft stuff coupled with some undisciplined at bats,” coach Willie Smith said. Korbin Korzan led off the fifth with a walk, then back-to-back singles by Cole Payne and Josh Bayne produced a run. Kurtis Smith walked to load the bases. Bad throws by the Falcons on grounders by Jake Tumblin and Morgan Payne kept the inning going and allowed the Wolves to take a 5-3 lead. Coupeville put the game away in the seventh with two walks and RBI singles by Etzell and Aaron Curtin. “We were able to come back to win it on their home field and with us not really hitting on all cylinders offensively,” coach Smith said. The two teams meet again in Coupeville at 4 p.m. Wednesday, March 19.

New Blarney Stone, same Irish tradition By RON NEWBERRY Staff reporter

It wasn’t the boulder that so many dignitaries had kissed over the decades at a location not far away. But it was a large stone all the same, and Helen Chatfield-Weeks laid a long, intimate smooch on it. It was some time before she came up for air. Parade participants and spectators couldn’t help but wonder if the luck of the Irish played a hand in a turn in the weather that brought sunshine and blue skies to Oak Harbor’s St. Patrick’s Day celebration late Monday afternoon. Hundreds of onlookers watched the parade travel down Pioneer Way then a smaller group gathered near the gazebo at Hal Ramaley Memorial Park for a ceremony that is traditionally held near the windmill at Windjammer Park. That meant a substitute boulder was used in place of the “Blarney Stone” that has rested near the windmill since it was placed there in 1980. “Nobody felt good about kissing that Blarney Stone,” said Chatfield-Weeks, who served as the parade’s grand marshal. “I wanted to introduce myself to that stone.” Capt. Mike Nortier, commanding officer of Whidbey Island Naval Air Station, and Scott Dudley, mayor of Oak Harbor, each took turns kissing the stone to satisfy Irish tradition.

Ron Newberry/Whidbey News-Times

Earl Darst, 94, said he’s lost count of the number of St. Patrick’s Day parades he’s walked in. At least 20. The ceremony was moved this year because a portion of Windjammer Park is temporarily closed due to testing taking place for the wastewater treatment plant. Other than that change of venue, most of the sights and sounds remained the same. Prayers were offered by Andy Mahoney, pastor of Grace Community church near Oak Harbor, and Lt. Jon Rozema, chaplain at NAS Whidbey, and Paul Kuzina sang “Danny Boy” and “Irish Eyes are Smiling” with Kathryn Magnuson Fardy. Darren McCoy, choral director at Oak Harbor High School, led his students on two Irish Gaelic songs with McCoy playing an Irish flute. Earle Darst, 94, also walked in the parade but quickly noticed one thing different about the 2014 edition. Its pace. “They were going too fast for me,” he said.

SISTER ACT CONTINUED FROM A1 the idea. The flash mob was formed out of their new organization, Clariza’s Cause, a group of roughly 90 people who are supporting Eborda through her cancer treatments. The dance was choreographed by Bernice Manglona. Friends Jessica Hawke, Brenna Weber, Dorothy Johnson, Stephanie Steffy and Crystal Simmons assisted with planning and costumes. “For a month I could see that she was hiding something,” Eborda said. “It surprised me. I was a crying mess.” Despite some wind gusts and a chance of rain, Guster said she believes the dance staged in the middle of the grocery parking

lot went well. “It was kind of crazy; with the wind, clothing was everywhere,” Guster said. “We didn’t know what to expect but it turned out really well.” Eborda was overcome with tears at the sight of her sister and friends dancing just to make her smile. “I’m so humbled; there were people there I didn’t even know,” Eborda said. “It was beautiful.” “I just want to say thank you to everyone. It’s so overwhelming. “There’s so much support around here, it’s crazy.”

An EA-18G Growler performs a field carrier landing practice operation at Outlying Field Coupeville.

GROWLER REQUEST CONTINUED FROM A1 original budget request released earlier this month. Greenert calls the request a “hedge and risk-reduction” effort, adding that the Navy is “very mindful of the industrial base.” The federal government is also “working on things like foreign military sales to keep that (Boeing Co.) line in business,” Greenert said. Boeing’s production line for the Growler and similar F/A-18F Super Hornet in St. Louis will run out of production work in the third quarter of 2016 if the company does not receive additional orders from domestic or foreign militaries. Australia became the Growler’s first foreign customer last year, purchasing 12 of the aircraft and initiating a training program through NAS Whidbey. The twin-seat Growler provides the electronic jamming capability used in conjunction with other aircraft to optimize fighting efficiency. NAS Whidbey is the only installation where Growlers are home based. The Navy started an Environmental Impact Statement in July about the Growlers basing at NAS Whidbey.

to the Growlers, but that it would be difficult to comment on how the additional aircraft would affect NAS Whidbey operations until the contract is funded. “Since this request has not been funded I cannot speculate on when — or how — this would be addressed,” Brown said. “If and when these aircraft are funded and purchased, the Navy will address their home basing appropriately under the National Environmental Policy Act.” The Growler acquisitions would both protect the nation’s industrial base and provide the U.S. military with the electronic warfare capability it will need in the coming decades, according to Navy officials. “Today we have the minimum numbers in each squadron,” said Navy Secretary Ray Mabus. “Looking in the future, we don’t think electronic attack is going to get any smaller.” Currently, each squadron has five Growlers, according to Navy figures. The Navy is seeking to include 22 additional Growlers in its “unfunded” requirements request for fiscal year 2015. That document, which must still be approved by military leaders, includes items that were not in the military’s

A football signed by Seahawks quarterback Russell Wilson sold for $5,000 Saturday night.

FUNDRAISER CONTINUED FROM A1 “I was very pleasantly surprised. I knew it’d go pretty well,” Chalfant said. “I was thinking a couple thousand, maybe $2,500. It kept going up and up. Everybody was cheering and standing up. It got a standing ovation at the end.” Oak Harbor resident Greg Goebel met Wilson while sitting next to him on a flight to Newark, N.J., last month. Goebel donated the item to the auction after Wilson agreed to sign a ball for the charitable event. Wilson autographed the ball and added a message, “To the Oak Harbor 12th man.” Chalfant said the Boys & Girls Club will be sending a thank-you letter to Wilson, along with a photo from Saturday night’s event.

Horse Liniment Erases Pain

HIALEAH, FL – An ingredient often used to treat inflammation in racehorse legs is now back on the market in its original doctor recommended clinical strength formula. According to a national drug survey, the formula at one time became so popular that it rose to the top of pharmacy sales for topical pain relievers. But the company marketing the product at the time changed the formula and sales plummeted. One of the inventors of the original formula has brought it back under the trade name ARTH ARREST and

says it can relieve pain for millions. ARTH ARREST works by a dual mechanism whereby one ingredient relieves pain immediately, while a second ingredient seeks out and destroys the pain messenger signal before it can be sent to the brain. Considered a medical miracle by some, ARTH ARREST is useful in the treatment of a variety of painful disorders. ARTH ARREST is available without a prescription or call 877-581-1502. Now at:

The “Bids for Kids” event raised $78,000 for the Boys & Girls Club, and Island Thrift has agreed to match $30,000. The organization sets a goal to raise $100,000 during its biggest annual fundraiser. The Boys & Girls Club was able to raise $11,000 toward the purchase of a new van, which will give the club a second van to pick up children. That was part of a fund-a-need effort with guests donating to a specific cause. “Our current van transports 80 kids a day,” Chalfant said. “It goes to four different schools. We have a waiting list. We have more kids who’d like to come but we don’t have another vehicle.” That will change soon.
