Accused of stealing WAIF bequest Ex-attorney pleads innocent to charges By JESSIE STENSLAND Staff reporter

Alleged theft and money laundering by a former Oak Harbor attorney resulted in the loss of hundreds of thousands of dollars for Whidbey Animals’ Improvement Foundation,

according to the president of the nonprofit group’s board. Douglas Saar, 40, formerly of the Law Office of Skinner and Saar, is accused of stealing from estates he represented, including one that named Whidbey Animals’ Improvement

Foundation, commonly known as WAIF, as the sole beneficiary. Saar pleaded not guilty in Island County Superior Court Monday to four counts of theft in the first degree, one count of theft in the second degree and nine counts of money laundering. Both Superior Court judges recused SEE SAAR PLEA, A5

Counting the homeless in Island County

Reserve’s marijuana restriction removed By JANIS REID

Numbers ‘static,’ but still cause for concern By JANIS REID Staff reporter

On the street, Ray Conger is known as “The Mailman.” Someone driving by the Safeway parking lot entrance might recognize him as the guy who holds up signs with messages like, “I love you” and “smile.” “I tried holding a ‘help’ sign but it just didn’t feel right,” Conger said. Conger has been homeless for two years, he said, and stays in his truck with his girlfriend. He said he worked 20 years for the U.S. Postal Service and bragged he once had a high credit score and a 401k. “I’m a broken person now,” Conger said.

CONGER IS part of a homeless population that more than doubled around 2012 and stayed that way. The annual point-in-time count, conducted in January, is a state Department of Commerce program that gauges the number of homeless statewide on a given day. In Island County, the count is led by the Opportunity Council with assistance from a few other agencies. The official state count is expected to be released any day, but the unofficial count provided by the Opportunity Council shows that the county has roughly 90 categorized as unsheltered, with 10 sheltered and another 150 that SEE HOMELESS, A5

Island County planning commissioners heard the concerns of farmers of Ebey’s Landing National Historical Reserve and removed restrictions on recreational marijuana operations in that area. “After we heard the testimony of folks who have lived there for years, we were all pretty well convinced,” said planning commissioner Scott Yonkman this week. “Placing restrictions in the reserve didn’t fit as we first thought it might.” The restrictions were taken out of the findings and recommendations approved by the planning commission Tuesday. This information will now be used to draft a marijuana ordinance that will go before the county commissioners. Farmers claimed the restriction on the reserve granted “farmers outside the reserve an unfair competitive advantage and sets a dangerous precedent,” wrote Charles Arndt in a letter to county leadership.

Curriculum proposal calls for state history, economics classes Oak Harbor School Board reviewing suggestions

By MICHELLE BEAHM Staff reporter

Students in Oak Harbor may learn more about economics and state history in the future. The Secondary Social Studies Curriculum Review team shared its official recommendations for the first time during Monday’s Oak Harbor School Board meeting. Major changes suggested by the team include requiring an economics class for senior high school students instead of “modern world problems,” and to have the state history class required for graduation to be taught during seventh grade.

raises the problem of how students will be able to take that class if they join the school district in later grades. The Curriculum Review Team said it does not have a plan for that, but suggested an alternate online or independent class be offered for students joining the school district in later years, and for students joining in grades 11th or 12th, they will continue the use of a waiver for the requirement. Other review team recommendations include adding criminal justice and psychology as electives to the curriculum and using the document-based questions project as support for American history, world history and civics for middle and high school students. The recommendations from this team will be voted on during the next school board meeting, set for April 14.

The economics requirement led board members to question the team about the decision to cut modern world problems as a class. According to teacher James Crouch, the subject is very relevant to people living on Whidbey Island as a large number of students are related to active military members. The board said it wants to ensure the subject is taught to all students. Crouch, speaking during the public comment period, said the curriculum guides that teachers use to formulate their class plans require that modern world problems relevant to the overall subject are taught in each social studies class. Some board members, however, expressed concerns that the topic would not be covered thoroughly enough. Changing the state history class to seventh grade

Harbor Singers, a coed choir from Oak Harbor High School, earned accolades at a conference.

Choirs judged ‘superior’ By MICHELLE BEAHM Staff reporter

Two Oak Harbor School District choirs excelled at a national conference on Tuesday. The San Juan Music Educators National Conference’s Large Group Choral Festival took place at Western Washington University on March 24-25. The festival included 36 choirs from the region. The Treble Choir, an allgirls choir, and the Harbor Singers, a co-ed choir, from Oak Harbor High School took part in the festival, and left with the “superior” title,

which is the highest ranking category for choirs at this festival, choral director Darren McCoy said. The two choirs from Oak Harbor had their festival circuits on Tuesday. These circuits consist of four parts: a 15-minute period to warmup backstage; a performance for the festival judges; a private rehearsal with one of the judges; and a sight read, which is “probably one of the hardest and most stressful” parts of the festival, according to McCoy. “Singing is hard enough because it sort of bares your soul to the audience,” he said. He went on to say that

the added pressure of having to sight read music, without hearing it first, makes it even more stressful. McCoy said that the two choirs have been practicing sight reading music all year. Choirs deemed “superior” could receive invitations to “honor festivals,” giving choir members an opportunity to be seen by university choir directors, he said. “One of the most important things about this whole thing is to get kids to understand that you can do music in college, and still have a totally different major,” McCoy said.

Firefighters respond to a car crash that cut power in Central Whidbey Wednesday.

Car accident knocks out power, closes traffic lane By MICHELLE BEAHM Staff reporter

Nobody was injured in a car accident on Highway 20 in Central Whidbey Wednesday afternoon, though it knocked over a telephone pole and cut power to some homes. The collision occurred at the highway’s intersection with Race Road. “The car was traveling southbound … and struck the utility pole, shearing it off,” said Chief Ed Hartin, of South Whidbey Island Fire and Rescue. According to Hartin, the accident caused the power

in the area south of the accident to go out. The driver was the sole occupant and escaped injury, said Trooper David Martin with the Washington State Patrol. Martin said the “worst part about what happened is what it does to traffic.” Emergency services had to close a lane on the twolane highway as a result of the accident. The driver received a $550 fine on suspicion of second-degree negligent driving, said Martin. He said it’s suspected that the driver fell asleep at the wheel.

Oak Harbor man escapes injury in I-5 crash An Oak Harbor man escaped unharmed, but another driver was seriously injured in a spectacular three-car accident in Snohomish County Sunday, according to the Washington State Patrol. Becky L. Parquet, 62, of Enumclaw, was driving a 2011 Honda Civic LXS and struck a trailer hitch in the road, causing the car to fly over a 2008 Chevrolet Tahoe driven by Jolinda M. McGarbey, 45, of Clyde Hill. The trailer hitch then struck a 2002 Toyota Camry driven by Robert G. Thomson, 64, of Oak Harbor; the impact caused him to rear-end the Chevrolet Tahoe. The Camry came to rest of the side of the roadway, according to a report issued by the State Patrol. Parquet was injured and airlifted from the scene to Harborview Medical Center in Seattle. Thomson and McGarbey were not injured.

An accused child rapist who was at large and wanted on a $300,000 warrant for weeks appeared in court last week, but his unusual behavior raised questions about his mental state. Michael Jelinek, a 23-year-old Langley man, behaved as though he was completely confused during the motion hearing in Island County Superior Court. With a shock of wild hair and a beard, Jelinek muttered to himself and ignored questions posed by Judge Alan Hancock. Jelinek refused when Deputy Prosecutor David Carman asked him to sign a paper. “I don’t want to be sacrificed. I don’t want to be burned,” he said.

Michael Jelinek Jelinek is accused of having sex with a 15-year-old girl he met at a bus stop on South Whidbey. Prosecutors charged him Feb. 6 with three counts of rape of a child in the third degree.

Page A3

Hancock issued a $300,000 arrest warrant for Jelinek on Feb. 6. Jelinek was also wanted on a $50,000 felony warrant for identity theft, bail jumping, burglary and forgery; in addition, the Department of Corrections wants him on a no-bail warrant for escape from community custody. Monday, Hancock ordered that Jelinek, who appeared without an attorney, be screened for a public defender. Jelinek won’t be getting out of jail anytime soon. He’s being held in jail on $300,000 bail for the child rape charges. He’s also held on a no-bail on open drug court charges and a $15,000 warrant in district court on an open violation of no-contact order, according to Deputy Prosecutor David Carman.

Grants going forward, despite concerns By JANIS REID Staff reporter

Island County commissioners are moving forward with grant applications to fund additional parking lots and trail maintenance at Trillium Community Forest. The county is partnering with Whidbey Camano Land Trust to apply for $370,000 through the state’s Recreation and Conservation Office, Local Parks Grant Program. Island County Commissioner Jill Johnson said she was concerned that the county would end up having to spend extra money to

maintain the areas. Johnson voted in favor of the grant proposal on the condition that the Land Trust will not come back to the county for maintenance. The commissioners opted out last week on an opportunity to apply for similar grants to assist in acquiring a beach access point in Glendale. Johnson and Commissioner Kelly Emerson said that the county already struggles to maintain its existing parks and beaches, and that they believe it would be irresponsible to take on more.

Island County Public Works Director Bill Oakes said Wednesday that the Land Trust is slated to provide maintenance to the upgraded Trillium Forest areas, if the grants are awarded. “What happens if the Whidbey Camano Land Trust goes away?” Johnson said. Johnson said she wants to make sure that a non-county maintenance plan is in place, just in case. Additionally, Johnson

requested that county staff compile a list of these partnership areas with the Land Trust to see what, if anything, it is costing the county in maintenance. Commissioner Helen Price Johnson, who alone supported the Glendale project, said that there are two sides to consider when investing in property for public use. “If you look at cost, you have to look at the benefit,” Price Johnson said.

MARIJUANA CONTINUED FROM A1 developing an ordinance in response to the state’s passing of Initiative 502, which legalized recreational marijuana. The county put in place a six-month moratorium while it researches and develops regulations. County leadership is hoping to have an ordinance in place before the moratorium expires in May. Originally, the planning commission recommended that the county restrict marijuana operations to the smallest tier — 2,000 square feet or less — and not allow processing and retail operations. Dozens of Ebey’s Reserve farmers told planning commissioners by letter and during a public forum in March that they did not want Ebey’s Reserve to be treated differently when it comes to marijuana. “As farmers farming within the boundaries of Ebey’s Landing National Historical Reserve, this potential precedent setting infringement on the flexibility, competitiveness and sustainability of the agriculture is of deep concern to us,” said a letter signed by residents Leonard Engle, Robert Engle,

SAAR PLEA CONTINUED FROM A1 themselves, so a judge from Skagit County Superior Court appeared telephonically. Whidbey resident Jean Froman bequeathed her estate to WAIF, which runs animal shelters for Island County and the city of Oak Harbor. The estimated value was $550,000, according to Bob Rupp, the president of the volunteer board.

HOMELESS CONTINUED FROM A1 were staying with family or friends temporarily. THESE NUMBERS have remained relatively “static” over the past three years, according to Lisa Clark, director of the Opportunity Council’s Island County Service Center. Clark said the jump three years ago could be due to a number of factors. Funding for a “rapid response” housing program ended in 2011, a program that helped the organization “reduce the incidence of homelessness” much quicker. In addition, the county is seeing more new faces. “There’s been an influx of people who haven’t been here over the last few years,” Clark said. Clark and others who work with the homeless sense that the groups of homeless folks are moving slowly from community to community seeking services. WHATEVER THE reason, the numbers are dramatically higher than prior to 2012 when the unsheltered homeless number bounced around 40 or less. “Homelessness is a complex issue anyway, there are a lot of layers,” Clark said. “If they have mental health or substance abuse issues, it adds to the complication.” Clark stressed that the point-in-time count cannot by its nature be completely accurate. The count lays within a wide range of pos-

Fran Einterz, Dale Sherman, Georgie Smith, Wilbur Purdue, Clark Bishop and Karen Bishop. Ebey’s Reserve Trust Board agreed with farmers in a letter released this week that existing county guidelines on development in the reserve should suffice and no additional marijuana-specific regulation would be necessary. “Therefore, the Trust Board requests that the language establishing special regulatory conditions for the reserve be removed from the draft regulations,” the letter stated. Despite the concession to no longer restrict marijuana operations in the reserve, the planning commission still defines the crop as “unlike other plants grown and processed as typical agricultural practices,” a move that many farmers disagree with. This definition was created because marijuana is subject to tracking, is a controlled substance, may not be traded at farm stands and is expected to be grown primarily indoors, according to the recommendations. “All products grown in Washington are subject to tracking, accounting, state licensing and security at all levels,” Josh Frank Harvey wrote to the county. “I question the factual basis of your finding.” Yonkman said that for him, the decision

to define marijuana as not quite agriculture was due to its classification as a controlled substance.

“It’s the primary thing I latched onto and made me feel it was a good decision,” Yonkman said.

Rupp estimates that WAIF may end up receiving about $140,000 of the money, because of the alleged thefts and the fees owed to new attorneys who are settling the estate complicated by Saar’s alleged actions. Saar allegedly took about $180,000 from the Froman estate, according to Rupp and Cindy Wilbert, the treasurer for WAIF. Island County Prosecutor Greg Banks confirmed that WAIF was the beneficiary of the Froman estate, but he didn’t know the exact amount of the suspected theft or the loss. Rupp said it’s not uncommon for people to

give part or all of their estates to WAIF. But the Froman estate was especially large and would have come at an opportune time. “It would have been very helpful because we’re building a new shelter,” he said. “The $3.8-million facility will be a blessing to the entire community.” Saar is accused of stealing from both the Froman and the Upton estates while he was acting as a trustee, shifting money around in accounts to hide the thefts and using stolen funds to pay for a limousine ride and a Hawaiian vacation, according to the police

report. Last summer, Saar pleaded guilty in San Juan Superior Court to stealing nearly $100,000 from the Wilson Trust. For that, he was sentenced to 30 days of electronic home detention and 240 hours of community restitution. Kevin Upton, one of the alleged victims, said Saar returned most of the money he stole from the trust set up by Upton’s parents, but about $100,000 from the trust was lost in legal fees since 2012 to uncover the theft and recover the money.

sibilities depending on the weather and how a homeless person categorizes their situation. “It’s like a snapshot,” Clark said. “We’re not capturing everyone.”

ment will present them to the Island County Board of Commissioners for consideration. Commissioner Jill Johnson said she disagrees with the count’s inclusion of people “doubling up” and staying with others. “It over inflates the story of Island County’s homeless needs,” Johnson said. “I take a pretty narrow definition of homelessness. One of the conversations Island County needs to have is what definition do we use when we fund.” Johnson said it might be a misperception that housing is an entitlement. “I’m not sure I think it’s a basic human right,” Johnson said. “That’s a pretty expensive statement to make.”

BECAUSE THE closest homeless shelter is in Mount Vernon, Whidbey Island’s homeless sleep in cars, live in the woods or float among other people’s homes, Clark said. Tony Maggio, director of My Father’s House Community Thrift, offers free bag lunches to the local homeless population every Friday and Saturday. Maggio visits a common encampment for the homeless, commonly known as “the jungle,” which can be found in the Penn Cove area. But Maggio said he’s seen the number of inhabitants there fluctuate from two up to 12. “It’s gotta be hard to get an accurate count,” Maggio said. MAGGIO SAID he agrees that the number of homeless he’s seeing on the island has increased over the last few years and that they run out of bag lunches every weekend. “There’s no shortage of need,” he said. Because of its lack of affordable housing, South Whidbey is particularly challenging for those trying to get back on their feet, Clark said. The Opportunity Council, which has offices in Oak Harbor five days a week, shares an office space with Helping Hand of South Whidbey in Langley on Tuesdays to provide outreach services. “It’s harder and harder to live on South Whidbey if you’re low income,” Clark said. ONCE THE official homeless count numbers are released, the human services depart-

An Ebey’s Reserve farmer plows fields near Crockett Lake Thursday.

OAK HARBOR Police Chief Ed Green said that, in particular, Oak Harbor has seen an increase in street population, but it’s tough to tell whether they are homeless or simply destitute. “There are some new faces,” Green said, “which leads you to believe they are moving from place to place.” Green, who worked as a police officer in Los Angeles, said that “any community that doesn’t have a shelter faces challenges.” That said, “it doesn’t always mean they are going to use them,” he said. “There’s no laws against being homeless.”

Ray Conger, a homeless man who sleeps in his car, panhandles in the Safeway parking lot.

WHEN ASKED if the island provides enough resources for the homeless, Conger flatly replied, “No.” Conger said his survival has everything to do with the kindness of Oak Harbor residents and the community’s religious organizations. “When I hit the corner, the people of Oak

Harbor kept me fed,” Conger said. Until Conger can raise enough money to get off the island and stay with friends, he said he must continue to panhandle while reminding people with his signs that “love is magic.” “I think I’m supposed to be on the corner telling them I love them,” Conger said.

SOUND OFF If the jets at NAS Whidbey go away, so will U.S. Navy By Barney Beeksma

The current battle being fought, and the lawsuit filed against the United States Navy over its use of the landing field south of Coupeville, is disappointing and becoming too emotional. A few simple facts need to be understood before one takes a stand on this issue. First, the use of that alternative airfield is integral to the future of Whidbey Island Naval Air Station. Make no mistake about it, those filing the lawsuit initially spoke only of limiting use somewhat. More recently, however, they have stated openly that their goal is removal of jets from NAS Whidbey. BEEKSMA If the jets go, so goes NAS Whidbey. Whidbey is first and foremost a training base. Squadrons stationed here are here for training to prepare them for the next deployment or assignment. As a member of the NAS Whidbey task force that testified before the base closure commission in 1991, when Whidbey was removed from the base closure list, it was clear that the excellent training facilities and opportunities here on Whidbey resulted in NAS Whidbey being spared closure. Since then, NAS Whidbey has become an integral part of Navy operations. And Outlying Field Coupeville is essential in providing the training those flight crews need to remain proficient in carrier operations. There is no viable alternative. For the past 70-plus years, Oak Harbor has been a “Navy Town.” I remember those years when we welcomed the Navy, and many of our parents and grandparents gave up their land to build the two bases. Our economy is built on Navy presence and we are blessed with an abundance of Navy retirees who made this their permanent home. Active-duty Navy families have always been part of our social life in schools, churches and civic organizations. Don’t even try to imagine what would be the economic result of closing NAS Whidbey Island. Finally, we can be proud that Oak Harbor plays an important role in defense of our beloved USA. We have taken part in every war we have fought, from World War II to today. And we have grieved with our neighbors when loved ones did not return from battle. To paraphrase the words of Joshua of old, choose today which side you are on, but as for my family and me, we choose to support NAS Whidbey Island in whatever activities they need to do to be the best they can be. ■ Barney Beeksma is an Oak Harbor resident was a member of the 1991 Save NAS Whidbey Task Force.

Reelected council part of a ‘get Dudley’ crowd Editor, Regarding your article “Oak Harbor leadership cuts down 330-year-old tree in secret plan,” the City of Oak Harbor had absolutely zero need to discuss publicly the decision to cut down this tree. This was a maintenance issue that needed not be addressed during any public meeting. It was a decision made by the departments responsible. Unless it required an extraordinary amount of money not already budgeted, it never needed to be discussed with city council members. However, it was discussed with the council members, and they agreed to keep it a secret. Under the Open Public Meetings Act, every city council member has the choice to agree that a topic should continue to be addressed in executive session, or they can vote to move the issue to the public forum. Apparently, every council member agreed that this should be kept

a secret. Mr. Almberg’s statements are just ridiculous, for the reasons already mentioned and for so much more. Mayor Dudley’s administration is a most transparent administration. If Mr. Almberg’s good friend, attorney Chris Skinner, didn’t feel it necessary to sue the City of Oak Harbor every time a decision that Mr. Almberg didn’t agree with happened to occur, the number of executive sessions would likely be far fewer. The people of Oak Harbor, however, handily re-elected Mr. Almberg, and others on the city council, and they are clearly part of a “get Mayor Dudley at all costs” crowd. You get what you elect: you get historic trees cut down under secret plans. William Burnett Oak Harbor

Join together to help heal loss of oak tree

Editor, This is to Mr. Dudley and the Oak Harbor City council: It is very sad to see the oldest tree come down. We all get older and would hope for some sort of memo-

rial when we are gone. Rather than all fighting and arguing and blaming each other for the march of time, how about a positive idea? I suggest that, instead of a statue of a sea monster unrelated to Oak Harbor in any way, we commission a sculpture of our beloved tree to be placed near the post office. All would enjoy seeing it and remember the tree fondly. Even planting a young tree nearby would help to heal the loss. Maybe have a seating area nearby for folks to relax and enjoy an drink. Let’s do this together as a community. Janet Farler Oak Harbor

Hoping voters will ‘kick them all out’ Editor, Oak Harbor’s little dictator does it again, but we shouldn’t be surprised that someone who fires people left and right wouldn’t hesitate to kill a tree. Now the administration of Oak Harbor has gone beyond city limits to SEE BESS, A7

MORE LETTERS TO THE EDITOR BESS, CONTINUED FROM A6 affect all of North Whidbey. We are fortunate to not live in the city limits, but that is our post office too. That beautiful 330-year-old Oak was part of our lives and we loved it. Now that the deed is done and the tree was found to be OK and capable of many more years, it is too late. We will lay flowers for the passing of our old friend, but cannot join the peaceful protest Saturday because of age and arthritis. Yes, we are past our prime too, but we don’t live in the city limits, so Dudley can’t get rid of us. We hope the people who do live there will kick them all out. Karen and Ben Bess Oak Harbor

Development Services Director Steve Powers issued the permit the same day, also time unknown. Dudley and his minions clearly took extraordinary steps to shield their plot from public view, lest those pesky citizens get uppity, ask questions, state their opinions and otherwise interfere with the smooth running of Dudleyville. Is a secret meeting the Sound of Freedom? Is a chainsaw at 7 a.m. on a Sunday morning the Sound of Freedom? Please come to the meeting at Oak Harbor City Hall 6 p.m. Tuesday, April 1. Wear a black armband to show that you are mourning the loss of open government and the tree. Steve Erickson Whidbey Environmental Action Network

Is secret meeting the ‘sound of freedom’ Cutting oak down a Editor, disgrace, shameful When Mayor Dudley and his minions met in secret executive session to plot the cutting of the signature 330-year-old oak tree at the Oak Harbor Post Office, they violated the Washington Open Public Meetings Act. Claiming that it was to avoid litigation is a transparent ruse that will never stand up in court. In fact, it has only made litigation more likely. Much more likely. Because they were acting illegally, that litigation may well be against Dudley and his gang personally, not as city representatives. Dudley did meet the letter of the city’s Oak Tree Protection Law — barely, if not its spirit. The City applied for the required permit to remove the tree on Friday, March 21, time unknown, and

Editor, Shame on the City of Oak Harbor for cutting down the great Garry oak. I lived in Oak Harbor and Coupeville for more than 21 years, and seeing that tree from time to time, that was magnificent. For more than 300 years it grew and never offended anyone … just wrecked a few sidewalks. I remember a lot of the fallen Garry oaks in Oak Harbor, but to see that it was cut down for no reason by the powers that be was a disgrace … have you no shame? I could use better words to show my dislike for those of you who decided it must be cut down. John Hicks Everett




Group’s objective is not closing the base Editor, In response to Mr. Smith’s letter to the editor of the Whidbey News-Times, I would just like to reassure him that neither Citizens of Ebey’s Reserve, nor COER, nor other concerned communities in Puget Sound, have any intention of attempting to “close the base”. The front page of the same WNT issue included a story reporting that, due to the P-8s replacing the P-3, it is projected that the number of active duty sailers will increase by approximately 1,800, with an additional average of 2.2 dependents accompanying each sailer. Relocating the Growlers to airfields that do not damage health and quality of life will not require that NAS Whidbey close. Jan Pickard Coupeville

Red Cross

Discover inner hero by helping others Editor, During March, the American Red Cross recognizes and thanks the nation’s Everyday Heroes who give of themselves and, in some way, help their community. The American Red Cross is synonymous with helping people, and has been doing so for more than 130 years. This year, during Red Cross Month, we encourage everyone to discover their “inner hero” by giving time to help a neighbor, make a

financial donation or take a class in First Aid and CPR. It’s also a great time to become a Red Cross volunteer or work on a preparedness plan or kit for your household so you will be ready for emergencies. The Islands Chapter of the Red Cross, which covers Whidbey, Fidalgo and the San Juan Islands, is looking for people in our communities to honor who have demonstrated heroism through acts of courage, or whose contributions and commitment to their community make them everyday heroes. Do you know someone who should be recognized? Send us a nomination, preferably by Tuesday, April 1, for this year’s awards. Nominees must live, work or have performed their act of heroism in the Islands Chapter service area. The awards event is 6 p.m. Friday, May 2 at at the Anacortes waterfront event center, known as The Transit Shed. The easiest way to nominate a hero is to fill out the form online at — click on the “Celebrate our Community Heroes” link, then click the Nominate a Hero button. Or, download the form and mail to Islands Chapter, American Red Cross, P.O. Box 249, Anacortes, WA 98221 abd email to or fax to 360-2930101. Communities depend on the Red Cross in times of need, and the Red Cross depends on the support of the public to achieve its mission. We welcome your donations and participation to help us continue to provide shelter, food, emotional support and other necessities to those affected by disasters. Mike Stamper, executive director Island Chapter, American Red Cross

Tree tribute an opportunity to remember plenty HARBOR HIGHLIGHTS By JOAN BAY KLOPE

I’ve known JOHN and RITA CLINE for a number of years. We first met Rita when she umpired our son’s baseball games during his Little League years. Our son, DAN KLOPE, graduates from Central Washington University in June with a degree in clinical psychology, so you have some idea how long our lives have connected. Rita is a little dynamo. Her pies are legendary. So are her quilts. When the churches we both belong to join in worship, I enjoy seeing her and John in a nearby pew. But I digress just a bit. This has been a sad and harrowing week for anyone, particularly in Western Washington. Watching rescue and recovery workers move through the Oso landslide has left most of us truly heartbroken for our neighbors. It’s a horror beyond comprehension, and I keep reminding myself that the small window I see of the site on my TV screen does great injustice to the enormity of this tragedy. Perhaps it seems small in comparison to mourn the loss of Oak Harbor’s oldest living historic Quercus garryana, or Garry oak tree. But life is rarely neat, or timely, or orderly. It is messy, and this is our community’s mess. Enter John Cline. You probably saw his Letter to the Editor in Wednesday’s Whidbey News-Times. At 62, John says he is certainly not a “tree hugger,” but is a man who, at this stage of his life, asks this question with greater frequency: What does this mean to me? We spoke at length this week, and he told me about the couple of years he and his family lived in a home near the tree while growing up. As he matured, his mother would increase the boundaries of his activities, little by little. Cline has fond memories of his mother telling him he could play as far as the oak tree, so she could keep a watchful eye on him. Those memories are deeply rooted in his personal story. Trees are in general. As a young man, Cline worked in a walnut orchard and learned that as they age, walnut trees become more productive. Oaks, he tells me, are masterful at their own damage control. They grow additional limbs for counterbalance and isolate much of their own rot. His love of trees grew and he has enjoyed woodworking throughout his life. Cline’s invitation to the people of Oak Harbor, to pay tribute to our once great tree, is set for 11 a.m. Saturday, March 29, right where the tree once grew at the post office. Motivated by concerns involving public trust, crossing boundaries and decisions made in the secrecy of executive session, Cline asks people to focus on two things: saying goodbye to a beautiful landmark and letting local government officials know that the public they serve has creative and dignified opinions that deserve a hearing. “Am I into civil disobedience? I’m certainly not,” said Cline. But he wants city government to have their feet “put to the coals,” and hopes Oak Harbor residents will build collective memory of this event come election time. How much did this cleanup operation cost? How is the recovered wood being managed so it won’t twist and crack? How will the public be included in future use of the wood? How does the fear of lawsuits play in all of our lives? Cline says there is a whole lot of walking and talking to be done. ■ Joan Bay Klope is an Oak Harbor resident.

Wigging out on stage

Page A11

Director convinces Whidbey Playhouse board that the challenges of bringing ‘1776’ to Oak Harbor, including 24 males, could be achieved

By RON NEWBERRY Staff reporter

Life is slowly returning to normal in Cassandra Woodcock’s home. No more hum of a sewing machine in the wee hours of the morning. Her husband Matthew can finally get a good night’s sleep. “There were times when she was just getting to bed and I was just getting up,” he said. In charge of costuming for the Whidbey Playhouse musical, “1776,” Woodcock and her wardrobe team had their work cut out for them to create outfits that would pass for the American Revolution period. Their work will be on display April 4 when “1776” opens at the Whidbey Playhouse in Oak Harbor. “She’s an amazing woman,” said Gaye Litka, who directs the play. “She’s done several shows here. She just wasn’t intimidated by the size of this.” Making authentic-looking costumes was one of several challenges that “1776” presented for Litka and producer Sue Riney. The 26-member cast called for 24 male actors. Litka found 23. “One of our men is played by a woman in the show,” Litka said. “That’s because we just could not find that last person. We went through weeks and weeks of trying to find him and couldn’t.” And there was another obstacle Litka didn’t foresee. It was revealed during a full dress rehearsal performed Thursday night as clear as the shine on Ralph DuBois’ freshly-shaven head. DuBois, who plays Benjamin Franklin, was one of few actors on stage not wearing a wig. It was intentional. The Ben Franklin wig that Litka ordered was “really bad,” Litka said, so she’s waiting for a special bald cap to arrive to dress it up before opening night. “We spent weeks trying to find a professional quality Ben Franklin wig,” Litka said. “I contacted professional people, wig makers, and didn’t get a reply. It’s

It’s a patriotic tale of the events surrounding the signing of the Declaration of Independence. Oak Harbor’s Fernando Duran plays the lead role of John Adams and goes about frantically trying to persuade his colleagues to liberate the American colonies by signing the document. The cast includes many playhouse veterans, several who played leading roles in other performances. There’s also a mix of new faces. “Oak Harbor has something that Anacortes does not because of the (Whidbey Island) Naval Air Station,” said longtime playhouse performer Dann Davies, who plays

Nate Edmiston gets some makeup applied in the dressing room while the finished product shows him in the green jacket. Making costumes and finding wigs proved among the challenges of putting together the play set during the American Revolution period. John Hancock and lives in Anacortes. “So that means we get some really talented people here for three or four years. Then they go off and do community theater in D.C. or in Florida some place. “You need the fresh blood to keep going. The same people can’t keep doing it. The audience gets tired of them. You find some sort of blend so hopefully you’ve got some veterans around that explain this is the way we do things here and

encourage each other.” Litka said it wasn’t easy selling the idea of “1776” to the playhouse board of directors because of the number of men needed on stage. But she got the go-ahead a year ago, then began piecing together the cast and those behind the scenes. She gave praise to many, including musical director Heather Good. “I’ve been here a long time,” Litka said. “I’ve been involved since 1981 and

thankfully have a lot of friends within the playhouse and did a lot of schmoozing this year. It just worked out. There are a lot of people who love the show as much as me and wanted to see it done.” Even if it meant donning an uncomfortable wig for a few hours. Or some ruffles under the collar called a jabot. “I usually have a suit and tie on,” said Matt Montoya, a lawyer who plays a member of the Continental

Congress from New York in the play, “so this is a different kind of dress-up I guess. It’s really fun.” “1776” will run April 4-27. It will be performed Thursdays, Fridays and Saturdays at 7:30 p.m., and 2:30 p.m. Sundays. Tickets are $18. The playhouse box office is located at 730 S.E. Midway Boulevard.

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.
