Grethe Cammermeyer stands in her office with a recent award inducting her into the Washington State Nurses Association Hall of Fame.

By CELESTE ERICKSON South Whidbey Record Alongside letters from former presidents, honorary certificates from several universities and movie posters depicting her life’s work, Langley resident Grethe Cammermeyer is adding yet another honor to the wall in her home

office. Cammermeyer was inducted into the Washington State Nurses Association Hall of Fame on Thursday, March 20 at a ceremony in Seattle. The honor is awarded to nurses who have achieved significant lifetime accomplishments in nursing.

For Cammermeyer, that includes 50 years of nursing, 30 years of service in the military as an army nurse, and 20 years of civil rights advocacy. “I was stunned, it was totally unexpected,” SEE CAMMERMEYER, A14

Governor Inslee signs second round of derelict vessel rules into law By JUSTIN BURNETT South Whidbey Record

Record file

The Deep Sea is raised in Penn Cove in 2012. New legislation was signed into law this week aimed at derelict vessels.

The 2012 sinking of the F/V Deep Sea in Penn Cove is once again making waves across Washington. On Wednesday, Gov. Jay Inslee for the second year in

a row signed into law legislation aimed at combating the state’s ongoing derelict vessel problem. The bill, 2SHB 2457, follows on the heels of a bill passed in 2013 that addressed the same issue and was crafted in response to the Deep Sea’s sinking.

The new rules are an environmental victory for Puget Sound, said Rep. Norma Smith, R-Clinton, and sets an example for other coastal states struggling with the SEE VESSELS, A20

Opponents of a $10.12 million, 10-year plan to change the Island County Fairgrounds got what they wanted: a slower, more public approach to saving the property. After a final public presentation of the proposal, a hundred-plus page document outlining everything from the property’s history to its possible future of $3 million in revenue, members of a group opposed to the plan announced online that the proposal will not go before the county commissioners this month. Though one of the opposition’s more vocal members was not ready to call it a victory quite yet, noting that she agrees with the premise that something must change at the 12.8-acre fairgrounds in Langley. “I’m thrilled that they’re taking a step back, but I’m not sure what is next,” said Wendy Sundquist in a telephone interview Friday morning. Sundquist attended a Wednesday meeting in Oak Harbor and the two previous meetings on South Whidbey in February and March. She said the general consensus from the steering committee in Oak Harbor on Wednesday was that they were not going to take the proposal as it exists to the commissioners. “I don’t know at this time what they’re going to do,” she said. “They felt like they couldn’t present it, and needed to get together as a steering committee and talk about what their next step is.” “They have to do something,” she added. Commissioner Helen Price Johnson, who was on the steering committee and represents South and Central Whidbey, said SEE FAIR, A14

Good Cheer receives Food Lifeline award

Kathy McCabe (right) receives an award for Excellence in Food Resource Development from Tiffani Kaech, director of agency relations at Food Lifeline.

Good Cheer received the Excellence in Food Resource Development award and $1,000 from the Food Lifeline conference at South Seattle Community College Thursday, March 27. The award recognizes efforts in providing more food for people by procuring new product donations, developing food programs and strengthening donor relations. The Food Lifeline conference brought together food banks throughout Western Washington for the annual conference. About 350 food bank representatives in the Western Washington region attended the ceremony. Executive Director Kathy McCabe said in a press release that the credit for this award belongs to all of Good Cheer’s partners in the community. It took the efforts of many individuals and organizations to expand the program, she said. The food bank was recognized for the Fresh Food on the Table program, which distributes highly nutritious and fresh

vegetables that were previously unavailable to clients. Since 2008, the amount of fresh food available grew from less than 0.1 pound per family to 2.3 pounds per family each month in 2013. “South Whidbey Good Cheer’s Fresh Food on the Table program is an excellent example of food resource development in Food Lifeline’s network of 275 food programs throughout Western Washington,” said Tiffani Kaech, director of agency relations at Food Lifeline. “Good Cheer’s food bank customers now have greater access to highly nutritious produce and the community is getting involved in a positive and impactful way.” Nutrition and cooking classes were also available at Good Cheer and clients reported a healthy change in eating habits. Good Cheer also contracts with local farmers to provide fresh produce throughout the winter months.

Hearts and Hammers receives $300 from community The Holmes Harbor community donated $300 to the Hearts and Hammers of South Whidbey on Friday, April 4. Jerry O’Neill presented the award representing the Holmes Harbor community during a meeting at United Methodist Church in Langley. The group collected money for fellow islanders in need.

Hearts and Hammers is a non-profit organization that helps repair and rehabilitate homes on South Whidbey for people who

are unable to do the work by themselves. The annual workday is Saturday May, 3, the first Saturday of the month.

Homeless numbers ‘static,’ remain a cause for concern By JANIS REID South Whidbey Record 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 people categorized as unsheltered, with 10 sheltered and another 150 who 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

Ray Conger, a homeless man who sleeps in his car, panhandles in the Safeway parking lot. 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 hovered 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 lies within a wide range of possibilities depending on the weather and how a homeless person categorizes their situation. “It’s like a snapshot,” Clark said. “We’re not capturing everyone.” 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, 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 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 department will present them to the Island County Board of Commissioners for consideration.

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.” 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.

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.” Oak Harbor Police Chief Ed Green said Oak Harbor in particular had 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

LANGLEY First Street loss, beauty award Langley will hold a public hearing on possibly vacating a narrow strip of First Street and Anthes Avenue to the owners of the Dog House Tavern on Monday. At the city council meeting at 5:30 p.m., Langley will also recognize Paul and Mickey Sarkis, owners of the Langley Pizzeria, for their work in making the city more visually appealing. The city will give them a beautification award. The public hearing is scheduled as the ninth item on the city council's agenda, after general citizen comments. The hearing will cover a request by Charlie and Janice Kleiner, who need the property to work out some structural problems with the historic building, which has a sag or jog in its floors.

The deck was technically built on city property, and Langley Director of Community Planning Jeff Arango said the owners were concerned they could lose its historic status if the deck had to be removed. Arango said most people would not notice the loss of property, and that the public may gain a patio or restroom near Seawall Park. Langley City Council will also review an agreement for services with the Langley Main Street Association, a growth management act grant application, the Island County waste management waste risk plan and water rates for community gardens at the April 7 meeting.

driving while intoxicated, causing an injury accident on South Whidbey and then fleeing the scene last year. The man, Brian Shelley, 42, is appealing a separate DUI conviction from District Court, according to court documents. Following a three-day trial in March, a jury in Island County Superior Court found Shelley guilty of one count of vehicular homicide, one count of hit and run with injury and one count of bail jumping. The bail-jumping charge was dismissed before sentencing. Superior Court Judge Alan Hancock sentenced Shelley to four years and nine months in prison. On May 16, 2013, Shelley was driving at a high rate of speed on Ewing Road in Clinton; his 1999 Isuzu slid across the centerline and struck an oncoming Mini Cooper driven by Leland Long, according to the report filed by Island County Sheriff’s Deputy Darren Crownover. Long and his passenger were injured and transported to a hospital for treatment. A witness reported seeing the driver of the Isuzu, later identified as Shelley, flee the scene on foot, carrying bags and a liquor bottle. Crownover quickly located Shelley. A portable breathalyzer measured his blood-

alcohol level at 0.091 percent, according to court documents. Legal intoxication is .08 percent in Washington state.

Deer smashes through windshield on Highway 525 near Legion hall Driver, a Freeland man, needs stitches, otherwise unharmed By CELESTE ERICKSON South Whidbey Record A driver was up and walking after an unusual collision with a deer Thursday afternoon. The incident occurred about 4:30 p.m. on Highway 525 in front of the American Legion Post 141. The driver, James Burningham of Freeland, was northbound in a late2000 model blue Subaru Forester. The collision resulted in the deer hitting the top half of the car, breaking the windshield and crushing part of the roof. Burningham was able to exit the vehicle on his own and was taken to Whidbey General Hospital for a

minor head injury. Washington State Patrol Trooper Chris Merwin, who responded to the crash, said this accident was not the average deer collision, pointing out the height of the damage. A driver behind Burningham reported seeing the deer jump at the moment of impact, shattering the windshield and smashing the roof. Typically deer hit the front bumper in accidents, he said. “This is one of the worst I’ve seen,” Merwin said. “He’s lucky.” The deer died following the crash. Merwin said the state Department of Transportation was notified to retrieve the body, which was left on the side of the highway. Merwin urged drivers who see a deer ahead to decrease their speed and avoid dramatic steering. No citation was issued to the driver.

School seeks volunteers to save history By CELESTE ERICKSON South Whidbey Record South Whidbey School District administrators and board members are hoping to preserve the cherished class photographs displayed in the hallways at Langley Middle School. During the monthly school board meeting in March, staff members sought input from the district’s board of directors on how to preserve and digitize the photos. Staff members at the middle school hoped to begin the project this spring, following an earlier plan to paint the hallways. After examination and further discussion on the condition of the photos, it became a much bigger project than anticipated. “It’s a big project that keeps on evolving,” said Linda Racicot, board chairwoman. Principal Eric Nerison described a variety of obstacles needed to restore the photos. Some are yellowing, have edges that are curling or are so worn down the names of the students are unreadable. The types of frames and glass of the photos also contribute to the damage, he said. The images feature graduating high school classes from 1931 to 1981. The walls of the hallway were scheduled to be repainted last summer, but it was delayed pending the photos’ restoration. Nerison said he hoped to begin the process soon, and that he wants the community to have better

access to the photos, currently high above the lockers, in the future. The school board suggested help be sought from the community for the project, which includes saving digital copies of each photo, scanning, and possibly reframing and restoring the images. Director Damian Greene wanted community input. He expressed concern about the placement of the photos in the future and wanted to have the photos returned to the same place as they were. Director Rocco Gianni agreed, saying that as a former teacher at the middle school he often saw people bring their children and grandchildren to the middle

school to look at the photos. “These are like family pic-

tures,” he said. “I think it’s important how we handle it.”

Viewpoint Schell attack was unfair, inaccurate; respect needed By RENE NEFF Langley City Council I am a City Council member in Langley and I own a business in downtown. As such I feel the need to respond to Fran Johnson who wrote a recent letter to the editor about Paul and Pam Schell’s new building near the Langley Marina. If Fran Johnson had the time to write this letter it would have been great if she had taken a few moments to speak with City Planner Jeff Arango or Mayor Fred McCarthy to get some facts. Either of them would have gladly helped her understand the following: The Schells purchased the original building, an old overwater structure in poor condition many years ago. Paul negotiated with the City and the Department of Ecology for the right to build a new structure on that property. As part of that agreement the Schells deeded the tidelands to the City of Langley, which transferred to the Port of South Whidbey when they took ownership of the Marina. This agreement allows the public to have access to the shoreline to walk and picnic on that beach, which is a definite public benefit. In return the Dept. of Ecology allowed Schell to rebuild as long as the building didn’t encroach further than the original wooden bulkhead. Shell’s original permit was issued in 2008 but it lapsed because he was not ready to build. The last permit took 9 months to issue and included new demands from the City such as assuming the cost of upgrading a water line past his property to the marina and adding 3 feet to the height of his building (because of the new shoreline restrictions). His new permits were finally issued in 2012 after another review by the Dept. of Ecology who deemed his new building an improvement to the shoreline since it didn’t go out over the beach and block the light on the tidelands. The City’s Design Review Board (an all volunteer board with expertise in various areas who allow public comment on buildings being reviewed) also approved the project. In terms of setbacks, there are no street setbacks required in the Central Business District in Langley, which the Marina area is part of. So, in review, the property went through two reviews by the Department of Ecology, two reviews SEE VIEWPOINT, A7

Fairgrounds study cost too much, plan foolish Editor, Since moving to Whidbey Island nine years ago, a repeated theme coming from Island County is that of lack of funding for critical issues, crime prevention, public health, the court system, etc. In September of 2013, the three commissioners approved $71,000.00 for a strategic plan to reorganize the fairgrounds. This money was paid out of the general fund. This strategic plan included mathematical errata. In addition, it included a plan that would only benefit some local Langley businesses, but was of no benefit to the rest of the county — meaning the remainder of South Whidbey, Central Whidbey, North Whidbey, and Camano Island. Rather than “save the fairgrounds”

the theme of this report was “raze the fairgrounds.” Most of the buildings were slated for demolition, including many of the barns used for the fair. In their place would be more commercial, public event structures, including multiple structures unnecessary for a fairground. Financing loans included secured and non-secured bonds, etc. It was a disaster in the making. Annual payroll alone would exceed $600,000, and when added to maintenance, debt repayment, etc, could well exceed $2 million per annum. This is for an events center that would only benefit a few select Langley businesses. No serious, pragmatic attention was paid to supporting infrastructure (consider ferry service when our events center hosts 1.4 events per day, 365 days a year). No mention was made of environmental impact of paving the area. This was extreme foolishness on the part of all three commissioners,

is very much appreciated. But then Rep Hayes cited as his proudest “accomplishment” a bill that didn’t even get out of committee: a bill to undo an irrelevant 19th century law that exempts state legislators from speeding tickets during session. Most law enforcement agencies responded by assuring lawmakers that speeding legislators don’t get any special treatment. Then the three legislators proceeded to tell us at length what a successful session it was because the budget was bipartisan, and pretty much managed to ignore not only one elephant in the room but two — the looming confrontation with the State Supreme Court because they failed to tackle school funding and the transportation funding crisis. I do appreciate that Sen. Barbara Bailey and Smith acknowledged that the state needs a more equitable and predictable tax system. Both repeatedly expressed strong sympathy for the impact of the business and occupation tax on small business, yet neither one once mentioned the impact of our state’s sales tax on families. Nor did any of the three offer any solutions to Washington ranking as having the most regressive tax systems in the country. No, my version of the town hall is more about what was not said: no solutions for school or transportation funding. No mention that they opposed closing a tax loophole for oil refineries.

tion at all of whether the state is planning for climate change impacts that will be felt right here in the 10th District like rising sea levels, increased acidification of Puget Sound and more intense rain events, to name a few. Hopefully, the next town hall the legislators host will provide more opportunity for input from constituents and that it will take place when it matters most: before or during the legislative session, not after.

Fairgrounds could be a cultural icon Editor, I wanted to thank Paul Schell for pointing to the Pike Place Market PDA as an example of a well designed organization that has managed a public space for decades in the article, “Proposed PDA: how it works, what it is” in the March 8 edition of The Record. His mention of the market prompted me to do a little research into not only the PDA that runs it, but also the origins of its creation. What I found was proof that, while history doesn’t repeat, it does rhyme. Seattle was faced, in 1968, with predictions that if the market wasn’t bulldozed to make room for “Scheme 23; The Pike Plaza,” a hotel/ parking garage complex, the city would continue its economic decline. The market, with buildings about the same age as those at our fairgrounds now, was seen as an under-utilized liability that should be removed to maximize commerce. Despite the support of this plan by the political leadership in the city,

Wonn Road is Montgomery’s Editor, This letter is in response to the March 8 article, “Wonn Road beach access settlement possible, sources say.” Having owned the

property in dispute on Greenbank beach for 36 years, we could have provided all the documentation to support Bruce Montgomery’s right to restrict access had you even bothered to check your facts. Washington state deeded the second-class tidelands to adjoining property owners in the early 1900s. The plat of Greenbank Beach was recorded in 1944 and included all second-class tidelands in front of and adjacent to each lot. This meant that the second-class tidelands in front of Wonn Road were divided between lots 17 and 18 of the plat, but at no time was there public beach access since the time of the plat. Our family purchased our property (lot 17) in 1970 and had posted ‘private property’ and ‘no public beach access’ signs for 36 years at the end of the road. Only Greenbank beach lot owners had an ingress/egress easement to get access across our tidelands. It seems like every 10 years or so, a different group makes a run at gaining beach access they don’t have a right to. We prevailed in every challenge. We chose to sell to the Montgomerys due to their long attachment and respect for Greenbank Beach. WALTER AND SALLY KIRKPATRICK Kennewick, WA

by two different city planners, two different Design Review Boards and two opportunities for the public to comment. I would call that a pretty rigorous system which had nothing to do with Mr. Schell’s money. Johnson is certainly welcome to her opinion in regard to the building. But to shame someone when she doesn’t have the facts, didn’t take the time to check the facts and thinks she knows what happened, when in fact she does not is in my mind mean spirited. It is also insulting to cast such negative aspersions on the City and State officials and volunteers who try to do their jobs honestly in accordance with the law. You may not be a fan of the types of buildings that Paul Schell has built in Langley, you may not like change because you want things to stay the same, you may resent those tourists who come here, stay in Paul Schell’s Inns and literally keep our businesses open. But I would ask you to please check your assumptions before casting judgment on your neighbors. We all live in this community, and it would be wonderful if we could treat each other with respect.

the public succeeded in forming a non-profit PDA, chartered to preserve and protect the market as an historical resource. The volunteer board has, since that time, transformed this public space into a cultural icon while also fulfilling its mandate to “increase opportunities for farm and food retailing, support small and marginal businesses and provide services for low-income people” (pikeplacemarket.org). Our community now faces a similar decision. Do we bulldoze our heritage to make room for commerce by forming a PDA that is charged with making a profit and must demolish buildings, issue $10 million in bonds to build new ones, while paying staff over $600,000.00 per year? Or can we consider a different approach? We have a regional example that shows that there is another path to what is arguably a greater success then the proposed fair plan even begins to imagine. Through forming a nonprofit organization to imaginatively preserve and manage the grounds, we would free the fair board to put on a great fair, while possibly creating our own cultural icon, steeped in history, but also alive in meeting the needs of the present.

Two-year skid to Cedarcrest soccer ends By BEN WATANABE South Whidbey Record Playing fast and physical paid off for the South Whidbey boys soccer team as it defeated Cedarcrest for the first time in two years Tuesday night. South Whidbey scored two goals in the first half and outshot Cedarcrest nearly two-to-one in a 2-1 victory. “We were pumped because this was the first time we beat them in a while,” said Lucas Leiberman, Falcon sophomore midfielder. If not for a last-minute miss by the Red Wolves, the game might have ended differently. In the final minute, Cedarcrest had a penalty kick inside the goalie’s box, but the shot bounced off the left post and went out of bounds, preserving South Whidbey’s narrow lead for the final seconds. “I was in the heat of the moment,” said South Whidbey junior goalkeeper Charlie Stelling. “They got in a final PK [penalty kick] in the last two minutes and I almost completely lost it. Luckily, it hit the post. It was all relief.” In past years, the Red Wolves have torn apart the Falcons’ defense, scoring three goals in each of last season’s matches. This time, Cedarcrest looked like it would follow past performances. Within the first three minutes of play, the Red Wolves got off two quality shots on the goal, though both were stopped by Stelling. Finding its footing in a new formation, South Whidbey pressed up the field. Falcon junior forward Kai da Rosa booted a hard shot from in the box that Red Wolves keeper Aaron Kussman caught. Cedarcrest countered with

Experimenting with a different lineup and formation, South Whidbey brought in senior defender Calvin Shimada for a throw-in near Cedarcrest’s goal. The strong-armed senior threw nearly 20 yards into the goalie’s box to da Rosa for a header shot on goal that Kussman stopped. On the ensuing reset by Kussman, however, Falcon junior Andy Zisette got the ball, took it down the sideline and sent it into the middle for da Rosa, who knocked it into the goal and through the tattered net in the 11th minute. “We did good,” said Leiberman, whose ability to possess the ball and move through defenders was vital in South Whidbey’s victory. “We just started a new formation … because we were getting beat in the middle the last few games.” Celebration was short

lived by South Whidbey. Cedarcrest answered with a goal by Cedarcrest’s Kyle Walsh. A quick transition from defense to offense caught South Whidbey offguard and let Walsh creep into the box for the pointblank shot. South Whidbey recovered and got back to its harrowing offense thanks to its midfielders rarely letting the ball cross the center line. The Falcons had drawn their defenders past the centerfield line and South Whidbey retook possession. Falcon senior co-captain Trey Adams sent the ball to the left of the goalie’s box for junior Kameron Donohoe to take a rocket shot that sailed into the net. “Like coach says, ‘80 minutes of hell,’ just put pressure all the time, nonstop,” Leiberman said of the team’s ability to keep the ball near the net after Cedarcrest stopped a first shot on goal. Much of the second half was controlled by South

Whidbey. Though the Red Wolves found several looks at the Falcon goal, none were as crucial as the lastminute penalty kick saved by Stelling. “It’s always nerve-wracking because they control it in the center and pass it out or take a shot,” he said of the Red Wolves’ offense that found several shots in the final 40 minutes.

South Whidbey swept Friday Harbor in girls tennis Wednesday, winning 5-0 in the nonleague match. The top two doubles matches were close contests. South Whidbey’s Tess Radisch and Bayley Gochanour played together for the first time and recovered from quickly losing the first set 6-1 to Friday Harbor’s Maddy Mainkovic and Ashton Timmons. The Falcon duo went on to win the next two sets 6-0, 6-4, rallying from a 4-1 deficit in the third Scott Rasmussen / Journal of the set.

Senior Amelia Weeks defeated Friday Harbor’s Sarah Yasmin 6-1, 6-2, and junior Isla Dubendorf defeated Isabel Gabriel 6-0, 6-2.

South Whidbey’s fastpitch team recorded 12 hits in an 8-5 victory over Archbishop Murphy on Wednesday. The Falcons took a 7-3 lead after the first inning and had strong hitting throughout the Cascade Conference game. “The kids needed that,” said Falcon head coach Tim Collins. “It’s still gonna be a long year. It’s going to be measured in increments.” “You can’t beat winning.” Kacie Hanson, the Falcon freshman pitcher, recorded her first high school out-of-the-park home run. Falcon senior Chantel Brown was 2-4 with a basesclearing triple and a double. Senior Haley Viers also had a double for the Falcons, who received a boost from freshman Leah Merrow, who knocked a double to the fence. Hitting this season has been a strong point for the Falcons (1-5 Cascade Conference, 2-5 overall), who have struggled despite getting batters on base. South Whidbey’s offense struggled the past five games, averaging less than two runs per game of that stretch. Bringing Hanson into the fold as the team’s primary pitcher has taken some time, Collins acknowledged, but she has reduced the number of SEE FASTPITCH, A9

Freeland resident celebrates milestone birthday By CELESTE ERICKSON South Whidbey Record

F

reeland resident Harold Robinett is about to join a select group of people in this world. This weekend, he will become a centenarian. Born in Oregon in 1914, Robinett has lived a full life, from joining the Navy to finding love twice, all while making unforgettable treats along the way. Robinett will turn 100 this Sunday, April 6. A community celebration will be held from 1 to 4 p.m. Saturday, April 5, at Clinton Community Hall. Robinett, who now lives in Maple Ridge in Freeland, is an active man who exercises every morning and avoids coffee and alcoholic drinks. He even drove and tended to his home in Maxwelton up until last year, at age 99. That never surprised his daughter-in-law, Debbie Daumen, who often keeps Robinett’s mantra in mind. “ ‘A body in motion stays in

motion,’ he always told us that,” she said. Robinett joined the Navy when he was barely 17 years old and wore the uniform for the next 20 years. He served aboard the USS Chicago during World War II in the Pacific Ocean theater. The ship made several stops in the Pacific while heading to Australia. “It was a nice, big ship,” he remembered. “I was doing what was necessary to get home.” Luckily, Robinett was sent back to the base before the cruiser was sunk by Japanese torpedoes in 1943. “A guy told me to ‘pack it up, start doing something different,’ ” he recalled. Robinett moved to Whidbey Island in the early 1950s while still in the Navy, later staying on the base working as a firefighter until his retirement. With his wife Sally, the Robinetts adopted four children — Delores, Patsy, Mary Sue and Martin — from Japan in the 1950s to start their own family.

For Martin Robinett, his father was a tough man who taught his children to be hard workers. “He’s stern. A good husband, good father — quite stern,” Martin recalls. “He meant what he said, and when he said something, we listened.” Martin, who lives in Coupeville, said he is looking forward to being with his father and meeting his friends to share memories in the upcoming celebration. “It’s hard to believe that dad’s going to be 100,” he said. “You don’t meet too many people who are going to be 100.” One of Martin’s favorite memories with his father was fishing at Bush Point when he was about 12 years old. “I caught more fish than he did,” Martin said enthusiastically, recalling that he caught five humpies that day, two more than his father. “I didn’t think I was going to catch anything.” Robinett was also an avid golfer, taking his clubs wherever

After Sally’s passing, Robinett married his second wife Geanie, who had three children of her own. Together they traveled the country and Canada in a new venture selling homemade caramels and syrup called Grandma’s Old Fashioned Caramels. Martin still remembers the delicious taste of the treats, which he still keeps in his freezer. “It’s delicious on ice cream,” he said. The couple visited many fairs and festivals dressed in old Victorian-style attire to sell the sweets. “It was always the family treat,” Robinett said. Robinett credits his longevity to a daily dose of oatmeal, his

homemade lemon-honey-vinegar juice and, until recently, frequent golfing. Robinett golfed with a group on Whidbey for 18 years and said he always walked the course, even when his teammates rode the golf cart. “It’s pretty amazing, he’s as healthy as can be,” Daumen said. He also said a lot of laughter keeps his spirits up. “We’re always keeping each other laughing,” she said. Daumen told Robinett she always knew he would make it to be at least 100. “How did you know I could make it that far?,” he asked Daumen. “Because I believe in you,” she said.

Wild about woodpeckers

WHIDBEY BIRDING

Craig Johnson photo

A female hairy woodpecker inspects a tree trunk for insects.

Frances Wood A sharp pounding on the metal downspout outside my window practically rattles my teeth. It’s a northern flicker using this hollow sounding board to communicate with other flickers. A loud rapid, “wuk, wuk, wuk, wuk, wuk,” draws my eyes to a Douglas fir tree where a large black and white pileated woodpecker clings to the side of the trunk. A return vocalization announces the arrival of its mate. Both downy and hairy woodpeckers trade-off trips from the blooming magnolia tree to the suet feeders hanging outside my window. At times they get closer in sync and will land at the same time, one on one feeder the other on a second feeder. These small, black and white, look-alike woodpecker species frequent our garden year round. The males sport a red swatch across the back of the head. If I walk part way down my driveway to a tall poplar tree, I might see a red-

of sapsuckers. The wells also attract insects, which the sapsuckers lazily consume. Rufous hummingbirds may follow the sapsucker around feeding from the same wells. Pretty amazing. All five

of our local woodpeckers can be seen within a stone’s throw of my home office. For the last 14 years, my husband and I have tried to balance our needs with what we know will attract the birds. Our trick? We take the easy path and pretty much let nature alone to offer up the best habitat. Large, old maple and alder trees grow in the ravine next to our house, some with dead and decaying trunks and branches. Several of those trees are riddled with woodpecker holes and one snag has been so popular with woodpeckers it looks like Swiss cheese. I’m convinced that pileated woodpeckers use that tree either for nesting or for roosting at night. The rectangular holes are one clue, but also the fact that these birds may dig out a dozen entrance holes in one hollow tree to give them escape options should a predator enter their abode. When we must remove trees, we try to leave stumps, which will decay and become favorite feeding

places for the woodpeckers. Our lawn is free of chemicals and the flickers probe through it for insects. I recently learned that ants make up 80 percent of the flicker’s diet. I gleaned this information from a charming new picture book recently published by Craig and Joy Johnson. “Harry the Woodpecker’s Search for a Home” is delightful for any age and features Craig’s

watercolor illustrations. Plus it’s chock full of woodpecker information. I also learned from the Johnsons’ book that a pileated woodpecker may strike a wood surface with its bill about 12,000 times a day. In addition to looking for food and creating cavities, the tapping communicates with other woodpeckers. Other birds may sing to attract a mate and identify territory. Woodpeckers spread the word about their breeding needs by pounding on hollow trees, metal chimneys and gutters, like that flicker drumming on my downspout. The louder the sound, the better. Usually this noise is shortlived and stops after the flickers pair up and settle into new nesting territories. Check out the Johnsons’ books (available at local bookstores) for ways to create woodpecker habitat in your garden or local park.

the committee and the Economic Development Council are looking at public

input on the proposal. She confirmed that no date is set for the commissioners to receive the proposal. “When they’re ready to move forward we’ll set a date,” she said in a voice

said Cammermeyer, recounting her feelings of surprise when she got the news. “Sometimes, when you’re out of the realm of influence, to suddenly have this appear, you wonder ‘how did this happen?’ You always end up wondering if you’re worthy of this recognition and what can you do to continue,” she said. Cammermeyer, who is also a Whidbey General Hospital commissioner, was honored for her civil rights advocacy and her contributions to nursing. She was one of six nurses who received the award this year. During her service, Cammermeyer had a distinguished military career including receiving a Bronze Star for Meritorious Service during Army duty in Vietnam, Nurse of the Year in 1985 from the Department of Veterans Affairs, an Administrator’s Award for Excellence in Nursing for her work in neuro-oncology at the Veterans Affairs Medical Center in San Francisco and was promoted to be Chief Nurse of the Washington State National Guard in 1988.

and achievements, Cammermeyer told interviewers during a security clearance check in 1989 that she is a lesbian, and was discharged in 1992 as military policy did not allow gays and lesbians to serve openly. Cammermeyer fought to be reinstated, and a federal court found the ban on gays and lesbians in service to be unconstitutional. She was reinstated in 1994. During her efforts to return to duty, Cammermeyer found early support with the state nurses association. The organization wrote a letter of support for Cammermeyer’s case and encouraged her to continue the fight from the very beginning, she said. “They were very concerned about social justice and were there for me in ’91,” she explained. She said she was honored to have the recognition from her hometown area. “To have my organization recognize that effort by inducting me is extremely moving,” she added. Chief Nursing Officer at Whidbey General Hospital Linda Gipson said Cammermeyer is a legacy in nursing. “She’s not just a great military officer or commissioner — she’s a great nurse. That’s the foundation for what she does,” Gipson said.

Gipson said Cammermeyer sets the standard for what’s right and speaks for people whether they’re patients, nurses or people in same-sex relationships. “Very few people have the courage to speak up and risk their job security, income or reputation to do what’s right,” Gipson said. “When you do the right thing, good will come from it even though it may be hard — the long-term benefit will be there. That courage is needed in daily life.” After a 20-year effort working in political and social issues, Cammermeyer said part of her work now is to capture that experience. Since the beginning of her fight, she said society has largely moved past issues of homophobia on the surface. “In today’s society, people as a whole are much more enlightened to the variety of people that exist,” she said. However people still learn biases which are hard to overcome, she said. “It’s so easy to forget,” Cammermeyer added. Cammermeyer hopes her work encourages people to stand up and do that right thing, which may come at a personal cost. “Live truthfully and provide examples for others to do the same,” she said.

hear steering committee members pitch the proposal that would tear down 15 buildings, leaving a dozen structures intact and relocated. Many of the existing small animal barns and the antique barn were slated for demolition in the first of four phases. Sundquist said about 30 people showed up, less than half of the attendance at the last Langley meeting. She blamed poor solicitation and announcement of the meeting, but also acknowledged that the North End may not be as engaged in the fairgrounds as Central and South Whidbey. The major question of how to save the fair by separating its management group, the Whidbey Island Fair Association, from taking care of the county property remained unanswered and a priority for the steering committee. One positive that Sundquist said came out of the outcry was the momentum to look at ways to improve the property. “There is a lot of momentum,” she said. “A lot of people are interested.” She and several members of the Friends of the Fair group that formed to oppose the plan now plan to join the fair association that oversees the four-day showcase and the property until another solution is found. “That’s the way we can help, at this point,” she said.

Saturday, April 5, 2014 • The South Whidbey Record

Justin Burnett / The Record

State Rep. Norma Smith speaks at a recent legislative forum in Langley. She was instrumental in derelict vessel legislation that was signed into law Wednesday.

VESSELS CONTINUED FROM A1

issue. “This truly is landmark legislation,” said Smith, in an interview Thursday with The Record. “This isn’t just a crisis for Washington, it’s a crisis for all coastal communities ... This really does raise the bar for owners and sellers,” she added. Key elements of the legislation prohibit the sale of “unseaworthy” vessels older than 40 years and more than 65 feet in length. And those that can be sold must have insurance at the time of the sale. The new law also requires moorage facilities and owners of vessels secured at these locations to carry marine insurance. In May 2012, the 140-foot crab boat Deep Sea caught fire and went down just outside Penn Cove Shellfish’s mussel rafts, spilling thousands of gallons of diesel fuel. The old boat, owned by Renton resident Rory Westmoreland, had been illegally moored for months and was uninsured. State and federal efforts to contain the spill, raise and dispose of the derelict vessel would cost taxpayers $5.4 million. The event made headlines across Washington and sparked legislation in 2013 to aid the state Department of Natural Resource’s Derelict Vessel Removal program. It preserved what had been special, one-time funding for the program, but also stiffened existing rules concerning derelict vessels. It also required a work group of legislators and state agency staff to convene after the session and develop a list of solutions for the ongoing environmental problem. At the time, Vessel Removal Program Manager Melissa Ferris said the state was aware of about 165 problem vessels. The current number could not be verified as attempts to reach Ferris on Thursday and Friday were

unsuccessful. The legislation Inslee signed into law this week, parts of which go into effect this year and others on Jan. 1, 2015, also establishes an annual ‘derelict vessel removal fee’ of $1 per foot on commercial vessels that are required to be listed with the state Department of Revenue. The money will go into the state’s Derelict Vessel Removal Account. Also, the law exempts vessel deconstruction activities from the retail sales and use tax, and creates new penalties for failing to register a vessel. Inslee hailed the recent legislation, and the state’s derelict vessel program, as a great success for Washington and other states. “DNR’s Derelict Vessel Removal Program is an award-winning model for the rest of the nation,” the governor said in an April 2 news release. “This legislation is significant, not only because of what the bill does, but how it galvanized both sides of the aisle and a diverse group of stakeholders to develop workable solutions.” According to the release, the list of solutions drafted by the work group was later presented “to a diverse group of stakeholders representing the commercial and recreational vessel industries, environmental groups, and ports.” Commissioner of Public Lands Peter Goldmark also applauded the “collaborative work” while singling out Smith and Rep. Drew Hansen, D-Bainbridge Island, for their efforts. The South Whidbey lawmaker and Hansen spearheaded the bill. Smith, who also played a key role in the development and passage of the 2013 legislation, said it was a collective effort and that the work group gathered weekly for months to generate the list of solutions. “I’m just thrilled it got signed into law,” Smith said. “We’re hoping this is really the foundation for change,” she added.
