A fourth candidate enters race for county commission

OH inks bank building deal By JESSIE STENSLAND Staff reporter

BAGLEY: “I think you’d have something to say … I’ll make sure I’ll have something to say.”

Oak Harbor city leaders purchased a parking lot with a bank on the side Tuesday night. Following a due diligence investigation, the Oak Harbor City Council voted

The 35,000-square-foot building came as a extra in the deal. “At this point we are looking at the building as an addition, as a bonus,” Oak Harbor Mayor Scott Dudley said. SEE PURCHASE, A11

THE HOMECOMING

By JANIS REID Staff reporter

Camano Island resident Kelly Bagley is the third Republican to file for candidacy in the Island County Commissioner District 3 race later this year. One Democrat has also filed to run. The candidates say their desire to run for the seat is fueled by a desire to do things differently than the current leadership. Bagley, a quality assurance technician for Amazon, said he was encouraged by a few Camano precinct committee officers to run. Bagley said he is interested in how the county is planning for future growth, infrastructure needs and water availability. Bagley managed a federal smoking cessation program and has served as a missionary in Africa 1990-92 and 1993-97. He settled on Camano in 1997. After watching a recent county commission meeting online, Bagley said he was surprised when Commissioner Kelly Emerson, District 3’s current representative, made no comments. “I think you’d have something to say,” Bagley said. “I’ll make sure I’ll have something to say.” Emerson was criticized over the past year for missing meetings or excusing herself early. In some cases, problems stemmed from a poor connection by phone or teleconferencing. Emerson’s attendance in the new year has been better, and an updated teleconferencing system installed on Camano has made it easier for her to be involved. During an interview Thursday, Emerson said she received no complaints from constituents regarding a lack of involvement in her job. Emerson said she is familiar with all three Republican candidates, but has no comment on who she supports. Democratic candidate Karla Jacks said Thursday that she believes that Emerson’s performance is “a huge issue” and has heightened interest in the election. Camano Republican Marc Hennemann said during a recent interview that, if elected, he intends to purchase a boat so he can attend each meeting in person. “I’m not criticizing Kelly,” Hennemann said. “That’s just the way she does it.” North Whidbey Republican Richard Hannold said Friday that while he doesn’t take issue with any one commissioner, it is his desire to bring some “common sense and civility” to county commission meetings. “There’s an awful lot of arguing,” Hannold said.

unanimously to move forward with the $2.6 million purchase of the Whidbey Island Bank property on Pioneer Way. City officials want the parking lot in the back of the building, which is adjacent to Windjammer Park, for the future sewage treatment plant.

A teenager with a GoPro video camera was the cause of a false alarm bomb scare on Seaplane Base Thursday, causing the gates to close for more than an hour. Someone reported to authorities they observed the teenager with the device “looking suspicious,” according to Mike Welding, public affairs officer for Whidbey Island Naval Air Station.

The event was treated as a bomb threat, Welding said, and the Navy’s bomb squad was summoned. North Whidbey Fire and Rescue was also placed on alert. “It’s standard procedure … all emergency services are going to respond,” Welding said. The gates were closed at 5:45 p.m. as base authorities located the teenager, who was brought in for questioning.

The gates were reopened at 7:15 p.m., Welding said. The gate closures caused heavy traffic and long waits for people trying to get on and off base. The teenager is not facing any disciplinary measures, Welding said. The informant, who was also a teen, “did the right thing,” Welding said. “If you see something suspicious, let us know,” Welding said.

Beached bovines raising a stink By JESSIE STENSLAND Staff reporter

Dead cows floating around South Whidbey and Camano Island are raising a stink with property owners. Keith Higman, director of Island County Public Health, said his office received a call about a bloated bovine on a South Whidbey beach about a week and a half ago. On Monday, another cow cadaver was reported on a beach

just south of Camano Island State Park. In both cases, Higman said his office was powerless to do anything about the nuisance because the carcasses weren’t spreading disease to humans — assuming no one gnaws on them. It was the property owners’ responsibility to deal with the giant masses of rotting hamburger, he said. Under state law, unwanted

dead animals can be rendered, incinerated, buried or hauled to a landfill. In the case of the dead cow on South Whidbey, a high tide did the job and floated that cow’s body out to sea. “People were taking photos of it floating around the ferry,” he said. “Pretty exciting stuff.” That carcass later landed on another South Whidbey beach.

Feds approve tidal turbine project Plans to install the first tidal turbines in the sea floor off Whidbey Island passed an important regulatory hurdle this week. The Federal Energy Regulatory Commission issued a license to the Snohomish County Public Utility District for the pilot project. If the PUD’s commissioners decide to go forward with the project, the turbines will be the first of its kind in

Puget Sound. The Island County hearing examiner, however, has yet to make a decision on appeals of permits granted to the PUD by the Island County planning department. Craig Caller, an assistant general manager for the PUD, told the Whidbey NewsTimes last month that FERC had rejected the appeals and that the license would be issued shortly, which

occurred Thursday. Whidbey Environmental Action Network, the Tulalip Tribes, the Sauk-Suiattle Indian Tribe, PC Landing Corp. and the Swinomish Indian Tribal Community filed motions to intervene. WEAN was concerned about the on-land portion of the project, which could impact a scarce plant community.

Ferry chief Moseley resigns post after eight rocky years By JANIS REID

By JANIS REID

Staff reporter

Assistant Secretar y for the Washington State Department of Transportation David Moseley announced his resignation Tuesday. Moseley said he is proud of what he’s been able to accomplish, “but it is now time for the next person to build on our successes, correct our mistakes and continue to move the system forward.” Moseley’s last day is April 15. He served in this position overseeing the country’s largest ferry system since 2008. Moseley said he came to the position with four major priorities in mind: build new ferries, provide better maintenance, improve customer relations and find sustainable funding sources, according to a statement released on the DOT website. “I believe we’ve made real, tangible progress on all of those priorities,” he said. The system employs roughly 1,700 workers and operates 22 vessels which serve more than 22 million passengers a year, according to The Everett Herald. Moseley’s leadership is widely believed to have contributed to a restoration of public faith and garnered legislative support for a number of important projects. Lawmakers have approved three new 144-car vessels, the first of which will set sail on the MukilteoClinton route this summer. In addition, funding for three 64-car replace-

Moseley also saw his share of controversy. In 2010, lawmakers ended reimbursement to and from terminals for ferry workers. An investigation revealed that Washington State Ferries paid nearly $6.4 million in reimbursements to 700 workers in 2009, according to The Everett Herald. In the summers of 2012 and 2013, routes were cancelled due to a lack of crew, something Moseley apologized for last fall. Also in 2013, Moseley was accused

of paying nearly double for a vessel when a similar craft was sold to a Massachusetts agency for a far lesser price. Moseley said he believes he did his best, and is looking forward to a new chapter. “Now I look forward to the next challenge,” Moseley said in his online statement. “I don’t know what that will be. I’ve had a few interesting conversations but really have no concrete plan yet. “Instead, I intend on taking a few months to explore new possibilities.”

Island County planners estimate that Island County will grow by nearly 10,000 people by the year 2036. Regionally, they project that North Whidbey will grow by 6,232, Central Whidbey by 991, South Whidbey by 1,211 and Camano Island by 1,018. Using these estimates, the county would grow from a population of approximately 78,400 today to 87,917 in 2036. The regional population projection is one of many steps required in the update of the Comprehensive Plan every eight years. The population trend is used throughout the county’s departments to assist in planning each area’s needs for services and infrastructure. Washington state counties are required to use a 20-year population estimate to ensure urban growth areas are adequately sized and allow for future growth. Island County Board of Commissioners unanimously adopted the projection at Monday’s regular meet-

ing. The next step is to allot the estimated population to municipalities and rural areas individually, according to Island County Planner Brad Johnson. An additional public hearing will be held once the localized population totals are compiled. Johnson told commissioners that they arrived at the figures presented by looking at county growth trends over the last 40 years, and found them to be very consistent. The only notable population shift they expect will be associated with the Navy base. The Navy base projects its military population to increase by 25 percent with the arrival of additional squadrons over the next several years. Johnson said an additional 2,530 was allotted to North Whidbey to allow for the population increase. In addition, Johnson said that the county is working on a “phased-in” resource allocation model so that the county funding and projects related to population growth are rolled out over time.

OUR VIEWPOINT

Commissioners should reinstate Friday hours IT’S TIME FOR the Island County Board of Commissioners to reopen all departments on Fridays. As the result of a decision made in 2009, the commissioners deemed it necessary to control expenses in the ever-worsening economy. At the time, with fewer people doing more work, it made sense to give overburdened employees a chance to take a breath and make a dent in the ever-growing backlog of work on their desks. But that was four years ago. Development in Island County and nearly everywhere else had slowed to a crawl and nearly all construction stopped as home values plummeted. Today, the situation is different. During 2013, home values in the county rose about 2 percent. Several real estate professionals and contractors recently pointed out there is a sufficient need to reopen county offices on Fridays. Having certain county offices closed is having an impact on their businesses. That not only hurts their businesses, it hurts the overall financial health of Island County. When discussing office hours, the commissioners should not take that fact lightly. During a recent roundtable meeting with the commissioners, several department heads indicated they are in a position to restore Friday office hours. It might present some hardships, but it can be done, they said. The commissioners should take heed. These are professionals who know their offices, the workload and the public demands for their services. We encourage the commissioners to take these department leaders up on their offer. The commissioners voice some concerns about re-adding Friday hours — most related to cost of hiring additional staff. It’s OK to have reservations, but the commissioners shouldn’t ruminate too long on this issue. The public, county department heads and the island’s economy are all saying the same thing: If Friday hours can be reinstated, then it should be done as soon as possible.

LETTERS TO THE EDITOR Navy

Can we afford to buy more EA-18 Growlers? Editor, Is the Navy out of touch with economic reality? The Navy will not conclude their EIS on the transition of the Prowler to the Growler at NAS Whidbey until 2015, but they are already asking for 22 more EA-18 Growlers. Are we to assume that the fix is already in for a Navy recommendation of “no adverse impact” on our environment, health and safety and that plans are already made for expansion of harmfully loud jets and related personnel? Can we continue to afford $80.5 million per Growler in the 2015 federal budget while our bridges and schools crumble? Right now, more than 50 percent of the federal government’s discretionary budget is allocated to military

spending, while national polls continue to show that the American public thinks military spending should be trimmed. Chief of Naval Operations Adm. Jonathan Greenert told lawmakers during a House Armed Services Committee hearing on March 12 that the Navy’s request for 22 more Growlers is a “hedge and risk-reduction” effort, adding that the Navy is “very mindful of the industrial base.” He added, “The U.S. government is also working on things like foreign military sales to keep that (the Boeing Co.) line in business.” Is it the intent of the Navy and the United Sates Congress to keep Boeing in business? Only about 20 percent of Boeing’s business relies on military contracts — the rest is focused on the civilian marketplace. Shouldn’t a request for equipment be made because you need the equipment, not as a hedge and risk-reduction effort? Has the Navy forgotten who is paying for these super jets with super price tags? Each Growler costs $80.5 million dollars. Although these are Boeing

jets, they are made in Missouri, not Washington state. Multiply 22 jets times $80.5 million and you’ll see why this huge allocation was left out of the Navy’s 2014 budget. The Department of Defense expects its total 2014 budget, including supplemental war funding, to be more than $600 billion. Isn’t that enough? Plus, spending on the military generates fewer jobs than spending the same amount of money on a wide range of alternatives. The multiplier effects of defense spending is currently between 0.6 percent and 0.8 percent. Military spending is among the most expensive and inefficient ways to create jobs. According to a U.S. study, $1 billion dollars creates the following jobs: Military spending creates 11,600 jobs; clean energy spending creates 17,100 jobs; health care spending creates 19,600; education spending 29,100 jobs So, yes, the military does create SEE LETTERS, A7

Ire toward sub is misdirected Editor, You can’t help but admire the folks who are criticizing the potential Kraken sculpture as detrimental to this Navy town. It makes me happy I chose to live in such a patriotic area. However, their patriotism may be slightly misplaced and there may be a solution that all parties can get behind. The submarine in itself does not represent the U.S. Navy. If any of you have noticed, there are zero U.S. Navy submarines based at Whidbey Island Naval Air Station. In fact, what is based at NAS Whidbey is the P-3 Orion and future home of the P-8 Poseidon. For those of you that

don’t know, one of the primary missions of these aircraft is anti-submarine warfare. Ironic, isn’t it? Now, as for the Kraken, myself being ex-Army, we used to call our brothers and sisters in the Navy “squids.” It was not a derogatory name, but actually a term of endearment. We always appreciated what the Navy men and women could do. One just needs to remember that it was Seal Team 6 that vanquished our most hated enemy. And, to my chagrin, might I remind everyone

that Navy has beaten Army 12 years in a row in the annual Army/Navy football classic. A solution for us all — the North Korean Navy is believed to have about 80 submarines. They have on numerous occasions threatened to obliterate the West Coast. I’d be more than happy to see the giant squid (Kraken) painted in Navy blue, and that submarine in its clutches clearly identified as a North Korean submarine or Russian. Just so that it is not identified as one of ours. Thomas Kosloske Oak Harbor

They had five children; James, Patricia, Dennis, David and Richard. She was preceded in death by Leon. Estelle was employed as office manager by Erv Parent, Co., a major floor covering company in Seattle, from 1953 until 1983, when Mr. Parent died.

Coupeville until his death in 1998. In 2000, Estelle married Raymond Bouchard at the Chapel at Whidbey Island Naval Air Station and in 2008 they moved to Oak Harbor. Estelle was active in Boy Scouts and Camp Fire Girls, serving as den mother and group leader for 10 years.

Mary Gordon

Mary Gordon passed away on March 15 with her loving husband by her side. She was born Mary Florence Hunter on Nov. 28, 1930 to George and Mary (Seferos) Hunter of Seattle, Wash., and raised in Magnolia. She went to Lawton Elementary School and graduated from Queen Anne High School. When she was two years old, Mary and her mother flew to Nome, Alaska, so their little family could be together while her father was working on the movie, “The Bounty.” Mary was nicknamed “the Little Darling of Nome” by

Saturday, March 22, 2014 • Whidbey News-Times

Eskimos and cast and crew of the film alike. Mary loved playing with her many, many Greek cousins and growing up in Magnolia was like a small town with neighborhood friends. She shared memories of playing baseball, swinging in the hammock in the yard and her Mom packing picnic lunches for her, her sister and neighborhood kids and walking them to the beach. While raising her young family, Mary traveled to many places. In later years she and husband Meryl loved to go RVing. They traveled the U.S. after retiring from civil service. They made Coupeville their home and were Snow Birds for many years. They were full time RVers for three years and really enjoyed all the places they visited during that time. Mary enjoyed going to Alaska and fishing with her son Mike and had a wonderful 80th birthday party with all her children and spouses. Mary loved to go to family barbecues and reunions and being with her children and grandchildren. She loved baseball and football and watched the Mariners and Seahawks religiously. Even though she’d get discouraged with the Mariners, she was a true fan. Mary and her sister Pat (Patricia) went on many trips to Reno together and were always called the Hunter sisters while traveling. She had a wonderful sense of humor, loved to laugh and be with her family. She liked the simple things in life and would always make sure everyone was rested and not stressed about things and to relax and just enjoy life. Unfortunately, her health deteriorated after a car accident over a year ago, but her spirit always remained strong. She was an amazing, tough and beautiful woman. She is survived by her husband of nearly 40 years, Meryl Gordon, at their home in Coupeville; her three children Janet (Manny) Rojas of

Coupeville, Michael (Shelly) Dunn of Ketchikan, Alaska, (Cheri) Cheryl (Cory) Asleson of Smithfield, Utah and her three grandchildren Celena Rojas, Joseph Rojas and Lacey Dunn and Meryl’s three children and two grandchildren, Terri (Mike) Thomas, Chris and Brian Thomas, Kraig Gordon and Lisa (Terry) Beitler. She is also survived by her sister Patricia Durham and her niece Linda Package and nephew Michael Durham. A Funeral Mass service will be celebrated 11 a.m. Thursday, March 27 at St. Mary Catholic Church in Coupeville with Rev. Paul Pluth, J.C.L. as Celebrant.

lost her eye sight to macular degeneration and moved to Aberdeen to be with her daughter. She was preceded in death by her husband Emery Merrill, son Thomas, and daughters Roberta Kraly and Rosalina Merrill, granddaughter Daniella Marie Edinger and great-granddaughter Nicole Threet. She is survived by daughter Caroline (Ron) Bashon of Aberdeen, son Ted (Kathy) Merrill of Oak Harbor, grandchildren Heather (Jerry) Poulson of Oak Harbor, Dana Smith-Brigantine of New Jersey, Kelly Edinger of Seattle, Jennifer Merrill of Mt. Vernon, Cynthia (Gerry) Oliver of Oak Harbor, Craig (Jenneka) Merrill of Oak Harbor, Michael (Karen) Bashon of Mesa, Ariz., and Reinie Bashon (Nancy) of Aberdeen. She has 13 greatgrandchildren. She spent her earlier years in Sitka working in a fish cannery in the summer months. Her love of sewing landed her a job of doing alterations for a local sewing center. Before moving to Washington, she was one of the cooks at the Sitka Pioneer’s Home. Her hobbies were gardening, as she had a green thumb and could grow anything she put in the dirt, crocheting and sewing clothing for her kids and grandkids. She loved to bake bread, pies and canned everything from produce to chickens they raised, and the side of beef. It was always a treat to check out her larder. The peaches, which were everybody’s favorite, along with the homemade bread will be sorely missed. She spent time with her grandchildren and great grandchildren, teaching them the finer lessons of life and love. She was an avid Mariners fan, never missed a chance to cheer them on. She will be remembered for her infectious laugh, sweet smile and quick wit. A Celebration of Life will be held later this summer on Whidbey Island with her family and friends.

OBITUARY

Langham

Shirley L. Langham

Shirley L. Langham of Oak Harbor, Wash., passed away on Wednesday, March 12, 2014 in Anacortes, Wash. ,at the age of 84. She was born on April 27, 1929 in Duncansville, Pa., to Charles and Edna Langham. Shirley was raised in Pennsylvania and was the first high school female drummer in Hollidaysburg, Pa. Shortly after high school, Shirley began work at the Denney Tag Company and worked there until she joined the Army in 1951. While serving her country, she was a nurse during the Korean War and stationed at various bases, the last being Fort Sam Huston in Texas. After her years of service

to her country, Shirley moved to California and worked at the Veteran’s Hospital in Oakland, Calif., drove buses in San Francisco and had the pleasure of working at LA International Airport where she got to meet movie stars such as Shirley Temple and Clark Gable. While living in California she was also married and divorced twice. Shirley then moved to Anacortes, Wash., and finally settled in Oak Harbor where she was a familiar face at the A&H Hardware store until they closed their doors. Shirley continued with her love of music by playing the drums in both the Oak Harbor Community Band and, in the 1980’s, the Senior Center Band. Shirley loved to play bingo and could frequently be seen playing at the Elk’s Lodge, Knights of Columbus Hall and casino. People will remember Shirley for her “tattoo joke.” She was also a member of the American Legion Auxillary. Shirley was preceded in death by her parents, three brothers, Melvin, Francis and Clair, two sisters Issabelle and Amy and her former husbands. Memorial services for Shirley will be held 1 p.m. Saturday, March 29 at Wallin Funeral Home with Life Celebrant Gary Wallin, presiding.

FAMILY FARM

PURCHASE

CONTINUED FROM A1

CONTINUED FROM A1

and other Dutch farmers from Oak Harbor’s Clover Valley made in the early 1940s when they gave up their farm land, homes and in many cases their livelihoods to make way for Whidbey Island Naval Air Station. The Navy purchased about 70 farms at that time for the base. Riksen was paid $25,000 for his property on 135 acres. “They made a tremendous sacrifice,” Lunsford said. “It’s not like you and I moving. It’s ‘take everything you’ve worked for — everything — and leave and start over again.’ These guys were probably 50- to 60-years old when they asked them to do it, and there’s no retirement there. Their retirement is the farm and their kids supporting them with the farm.” It is these acts by farmers in Clover Valley that Lunsford is hoping to memorialize by preserving the Riksen farm and perhaps turning it into a museum. She was one of about 30 guests, mostly Riksen descendents and their spouses, invited by the Navy to tour the home and barn Tuesday. The Riksen place is one of eight old farmhouses on federal property near Ault Field being considered for removal. Remodeled and used for decades as base housing, the aging structures have gradually been phased out, leaving their future up in the air. Forest City Enterprises, which owns the properties and leases the land from the federal government, is working with the Navy to decide what to do with them. The review could take close to a year, said Greg Raap, vice president for Forest City’s Northwest Region. “We have no intention to use them as housing,” Raap said. “We just have to figure out what the right thing to do is. We want to do the right thing.” Kendall Campbell, cultural resource program manager for NAS Whidbey, is working with Forest City and the Washington State Historic Preservation Office to determine the fate of the farmhouses. She’s done extensive research on the properties in the past year, including speaking to relatives and others to better understand their importance to the community. The review includes consulting with the state to determine if the farmhouses are eligible for listing on the National Register of Historic Places, Campbell said. So far, the Riksen farm has emerged as the property the community is most interested in saving. Many of the other seven farmhouses are no longer at their original sites. Another farmhouse was restored and is being used for military housing, Raap said.

The decision of where to build the treatment facility was the last obstacle in moving forward with the multi-million-dollar project. Dudley said the city administrator, city engineer and representatives from Carollo Engineers were already at the site this week to discuss how to configure the plant. It will be up to the community to decide what to do with the two-story building, but loads of ideas are already popping up, Dudley said. City officials discussed moving the crowded library into the building, or even City Hall; in fact, there’s room for both. “Something tells me you have a prime location downtown with a lot of options,” he said. The only potential problem, he said, is that any public use of the building would require a seismic retrofit. He said he didn’t know how expensive that might be. Kathy Reed, director of the Oak Harbor Chamber of Commerce, agrees the possibilities are endless and that just about any use would be a boon to the downtown area. She suggested the site could even be used as a “business incubator.” “It’s fun that the city has some real estate to work with,” she said.

The Riksen farmhouse in its current state with the barn in the background. “We wanted to keep one representative example of the farmhouses operating,” Raap said. “The big question is, ‘What is appropriate for those remaining eight houses?’ I don’t know what the answer is.” So far, much of the preservation efforts have focused on the Riksen farm, which includes a farmhouse and massive barn, among other structures. Henry Riksen was among the first group of immigrants of Dutch descent who came to Whidbey Island from Michigan in the late 1800s attracted to the fertile farm lands. He settled in Clover Valley, built the farmhouse around 1900 and had a massive round top barn constructed using timber from the property. The Navy invited Riksen descendents and others to tour the structures. Among them was Oak Harbor’s Karen Van Dam, whose great-great-aunt Jane married Henry Riksen. “This is a piece of our history,” Van Dam said. “It would be so neat if we could preserve it.” Feedback from the tour is part of the process of measuring the property’s local historic importance. These measures are sometimes difficult to determine. “When you look at what makes a building significant, it’s feeling, characteristic, integrity,” Campbell said. “So what’s feeling? “When I drive into Oak Harbor and I see something on the Seaplane Base, does it evoke a feeling, a memory? That’s hard to do.” The Riksen farm visit stirred up plenty of memories and served as somewhat of a family reunion in the process. Van Dam and Lunsford both would like to see consideration made to turn the farmhouse into a museum to honor both the early pioneers who farmed the land there and naval history. The property is on federal land but is located outside of the Langley gate with the sights and sounds of aircraft nearby. Their hope was to see if the PBY Memorial Foundation might be interested in the site, however, that museum will be moving to the location of the former Whidbey Furniture store on Pioneer Way some time in May. “It would be great for people to have a chance to see part of naval history and pioneer history,” Van Dam said.

with two six-month options for extension. The Daily Grind coffee shop is located in the rear of the building. After a lengthy public process, the City Council voted in 2012 to site the new sewage treatment plant, which will likely be the most expensive project in city history, in the Windjammer Park vicinity downtown. City leaders investigated several potential properties on Pioneer Way. In December, the city entered into a sales and purchase agreement with Whidbey DUDLEY Island Bank for the parking lot and accompanying bank building, which once housed JC Penney and later InterWest Bank. The city hired several firms to investigate the property over the last few months. An archaeological firm dug pits in the parking lot in search of cultural remains. A geotechnical firm bored into the soil. And a real estate expert looked at the structural integrity of the building. The parking lot has a clean bill of health, Dudley said. The building, however, has some concerns. Dudley said officials knew ahead of time that there are problems with the roof and windows that need to be fixed, so those issues were not surprises. But the seismic issues identified by the inspector could throw a potential wrench in the works.

Kidding around

Reading challenge brings adventures HARBOR HIGHLIGHTS By JOAN BAY KLOPE

Goat farm welcomes births, opens to the public for feedings By JUSTIN BURNETT South Whidbey Record

Yes, they are as cute as they look. Their cries, their little wagging tails, their bids for attention: it’s the whole package. Vicky Brown, owner of Little Brown Farm in Freeland, sums it up best. “They are ridiculously adorable,” Brown said. “My problem is every single one is my favorite.” Brown specializes in goat products and March marks the start of kidding season. The first batch arrived this past Friday and South Whidbey residents have been cooing over Facebook pictures ever since. “Oh.... my.... God. Cutest thing on the planet,” said one commenter. “I want them all,” and “Cuteness overload,” said two others. Such sentiments were just a few of the awws and oohs expressed on the farm’s first Facebook post, which as of Monday afternoon had received 135 likes. Many also expressed excitement and anticipation over what they know comes next. Every year, once the new babies are a few weeks old, Brown opens her doors and allows the public to come bottle feed the infant Nubian goats. Hours are 3 p.m. daily, beginning April 1, at 1377 Barr Road. A dozen kids have been born so far, and Brown is expecting about 20 more. That’s usually enough for most crowds, but in a pinch priority is given to children. “The adults have to wait and be grownups about it,” Brown said. “Which they don’t always do,” added Christine Maifeld, with a knowing smile. Maifeld, 24, is Brown’s daughter and helps her mom operate the certified dairy farm. With their herd of about 30 goats, the farm produces a variety of products, from cheese and yogurt to specialties such as Cajeta, a type of Mexican caramel sauce. Opening the farm to the public is extra work, but it’s worth it for several reasons. For starters, it’s an excellent marketing tool and great way of getting customers to her on-site store, which is hidden away a few miles south of Freeland off Wahl Road. Feeding the goats is free, but customers are encouraged to “bring their wallets,” Brown laughed. It’s also a means of educating the public about agriculture and where meat comes from. A few of the baby goats are kept or sold as pets, but the majority — nearly all of the males — are sent to a slaughterhouse for the farm’s grass-fed meat

A newborn Nubian goat kid gives Christine Maifeld’s nose a taste at Little Brown Farm in Freeland. Kidding season has begun and the farm is expecting about 30 new animals.

Vicky Brown of Little Brown Farm snuggles with a baby Nubian goat. It’s kidding season and she will open the farm to the public next month so people can bottle-feed the newborn goats. program. It’s not always easy for the two women, as they spend many hours raising and caring for the kids, but it’s an aspect of farming and consuming meat that they feel is

important to share with the public. “Some people don’t like our meat because they’ve met it,” Brown said. “But knowing where your food comes from is important.”

March is National “Read a Book!” Month and it’s been a lovely page-turning, peoplemeeting adventure. It started when I downloaded “The Dirty Life” onto my Kindle. I might never have come across KRISTEN KIMBALL’S poetic- yet-candid memoir of starting a new life and organic farm in upstate New York had I not recently attended a gardening class sponsored by our local Washington State University extension. It was there that I met Wind & Tide Bookshop owner KAREN MUELLER. I’ve long believed life will unfold before you if you embrace a heart of adventure and set aside time to walk an unknown path. That I have dreams of being a successful vegetable gardener is what drew me to Kimball’s story and left me, at the end, teary-eyed and wanting more — another book from Kimball and a vegetable garden with healthy food, enough to share. I just happened to begin talking with Mueller and she handed me PEGGY DARST TOWNSDIN’S latest photo history book, “Oak Harbor.” It was another delightful moment that set my feet walking. Townsdin’s book, part of the Images of America series, got me thinking about Oak Harbor history — and local writers. Mueller promised me that a trip to her bookshop would introduce much more of both. I ventured down Pioneer Way in downtown Oak Harbor this week. Mueller offers buyers a wonderful selection of books written by Whidbey writers I’d heard about as well as others I will happily add to my collection. If you’re interested in PBYs you will find WIN STITES’ “Cat Tales” and can learn about the adventures crews experienced flying Catalina seaplanes. He even has a great little coloring book for all ages. If you want to explore Whidbey you’ll must read DEB CRAGER’S “101 Things to Do on Whidbey Island.” “Whidbey Magic” by SUE AVERETT and ERIEK WESTPHAL and “Eye on Paradise: A Whidbey Island Love Story” by RICK LAWLER both capture the beauty that surrounds us with magnificent photos. The WHIDBEY WRITERS GROUP has published stories and poems. There are also cookbooks and books about Coupeville and Fort Casey. But it is “Whidbey Island’s Special Places (And the People Who Love Them)” by DAN PEDERSEN that sent me onward to the Deception Pass Park visitor’s center to see our very own Ranger Rick, one of the people featured in Pedersen’s book. RANGER RICK BLANK loves people as much as he treasures the natural resources found at the park. It was evident the day we visited. When I told him I wanted to hike around the park this spring and summer, he handed me a great hiking map. When I mentioned my interest in the work done by the Civilian Conservation Corps up at the park, he introduced me to “Two Hands and a Shovel,” a photo history book written by JACK HARTT — longtime park manager — and SAM WOTIPKA, who worked a couple of years at the park as an AmeriCorps member and sparked the idea of publishing the extensive collection of photos. My adventures in reading this March have been highlighted by wonderful new books, their local authors, and those who value their work. These are gifts for us all to enjoy.

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. Most long bed pickup trucks have beds that are close to the four-foot by 8-foot dimension. To m a k e a f i r e w o o d complaint, call 360-9021857. agr.wa.gov/inspection/ WeightsMeasures/Fire woodinformation.aspx agr.wa.gov/inspection/WeightsMeasures/Firewoodinformation.aspx
