State kills ghost shrimp biz off Langley

Clouds part for Freeland Sunny View project with water OK By JUSTIN BURNETT South Whidbey Record

By BEN WATANABE South Whidbey Record Langley city leaders got their wish this week when the Washington State Department of Natural Resources announced an end to ghost shrimp harvesting in Saratoga Passage. Citing a lack of information about the impact of removing the crustaceans, also known as sand shrimp, from gray whale feeding grounds, the DNR informed five commercial harvesters their permits to access sites around Whidbey and Camano islands would be terminated May 23. Some were notified last Friday, others — seemingly coincidentally — on Earth Day, April 22. “The whole thing feels like it was meant to be,” said Langley Mayor Fred McCarthy, who led the city’s charge for a two-year moratorium on ghost shrimp harvesting. “This has tremendous implications for tourism in the future. … That’s a significant draw for our city.” Local shrimpers, however, are not so excited as McCarthy’s vision of a more prosperous future for Langley will come at the expense of their pocketbooks. “I guess Langley thinks they’ll fill up the whalewatching boats if we’re not here,” said Randy Linard, a Freeland-based ghost shrimp harvester. “We’re just out of business.” Since November 2013, McCarthy and a city-organized sand shrimp advocacy committee pushed the state SEE SHRIMP, A20

It’s cheap, available, lethal and on the rise By JESSIE STENSLAND South Whidbey Record Langley Police Chief Dave Marks tore his Achilles tendon while chasing a heroin addict through the woods last year. For the veteran officer, the man is hard to forget — he’s had to chase him down more times than he can remember. Last week, the chief noticed the all-too-familiar face standing on Cascade Avenue and tackled him behind The South

Whidbey Commons; he found four syringes in his pockets. “He needed to get a hit so bad, he stopped while I was chasing him,” Marks said. “I can’t prove that, but I’m 90 percent sure that’s what happened.” Such is the power of heroin. Once considered a drug for rock stars and hardcore users, heroin has gained a troubling prominence on SEE HEROIN, A12

Banks looks for four more years as prosecutor By JESSIE STENSLAND South Whidbey Record Greg Banks isn’t ready to give up his day job. The Island County prosecutor decided in 2013 that his fourth term, which ends this year, would be his last. But this week he

changed course, announcing that he will seek another four years in office. “It really is a great job,” he said. “We work in pursuit of justice, not in pursuit of profit. I get to wear the white hat and I get to go home at the end of the day and I sleep well at

night.” Island County Sheriff Mark Brown is also running again and said he is glad that Banks wants to stay. In fact, he encouraged him to run again. “I think we have a very SEE BANKS, A13


A 26-unit affordable housing development proposed in Freeland cleared a major hurdle this week. The Freeland Water and Sewer District issued a water availability letter for Sunny View Village, a $6.3 million project planned for a nearly nine-acre lot off Fish Road, between Highway 525 and Scenic Avenue. “I’m ecstatic,” said Teri Anania, executive director of the Island County Housing Authority, the organization building Sunny View Village. “I’m thrilled. It’s been a long time coming.” “We still have a public comment period, but this was the last big hurdle for us to get going,” she added. Up until Monday, the project was stalled due to funding headaches connected with a water district policy. It requires developers to pay for water availability letters upfront. The problem is that many lending agencies and state grant holders won’t deliver funds until after they are officially assured there is sufficient water to service the proposed development. Housing Authority officials and project leaders attended a water district meeting in March and pleaded for an exemption. The commissioners refused to do so outright, though they did grant an exemption for another customer with the same probSEE SUNNY VIEW, A20

Six students from Langley Middle School placed in the Washington State Science Fair on Saturday, April 5. Eighth grader Elli Sandburg placed first in her division, while Lily Bjork took second in her division. Emma Scotthanson came home with a third place ribbon.

In the seventh grade, Farriss Jokinen placed second. In the sixth grade, Ashley Ricketts and Flannery Friedman both placed third in their division. The students traveled to Bremerton for the competition earlier this month with teacher Sandy Gilbert. The fair included 120 schools across the state with 500 students, 300 judges and volunteers. “I was so proud of our Langley Middle School kids,” Gilbert wrote in an email to The Record. After her students all placed in the top three of their divisions, Gilbert wondered if students from other schools who attended also placed. “We asked one of the judges and were thrilled to find out that we were wrong,” she said. “We rocked it!”

Good Cheer Food Bank is the lucky recipient of a lot of cookies. Junior Girl Scout Troop 43514 donated 138 boxes, or 86 pounds, of the assorted cookies to the food bank after collecting “Gifts of Caring” from the community during the cookie sale.

Dean Hefflinger and Grace Michael, along with Les Gabelein and Sharon DeLong, are pleased to announce the engagement of their children Stephen Hefflinger and Cara Gabelein, both of Langley. The couple plan to marry this fall. Both are lifelong residents of Whidbey Island and spend their time outdoors Stephen Hefflinger and Cara camping, hiking, Gabelein rock climbing and kayaking. Stephen is a professional fisherman in Bristol Bay, Alaska and Puget Sound, while Cara is a FedEx home delivery driver for the South End. The ceremony will be held in a private location with a reception following in Langley. Both events will be invitation only. Stephen and Cara would like to thank everyone for the well wishes and are excited to start their life together.

Troop members learned how the cookies would be distributed through the food bank and also learned about other donations that help feed their neighbors and friends. The girls also got the chance to label the cookie boxes for the store’s shelves.

Rule change to allow Whidbey pot growers location flexibility By JANIS REID South Whidbey Record Marijuana growers and processors will not have to be located on a county road to be eligible for a license. Island County commissioners responded to comments during Monday’s public hearing on the proposed ordinance. A handful of residents said the county road requirement would prevent them from participating in the fledgling industry. “Most [rural] areas are on private roads, which would push them [marijuana operations] into city areas,” said resident Holly Hansen. Island County Sheriff Mark Brown has expressed to county commissioners his desire that all recreational marijuana operations be easily accessible to law enforcement and located along county roads. Commissioners agreed that the requirement to be on a county road would be a hardship to some and directed staff to change language to allow for private road access. However, marijuana growers and processors will be required to demonstrate accessibility either through an easement or a letter signed by all road users that it will remain open to law enforcement. Commissioner Helen Price Johnson said this would put the “onus on the applicant” while still allowing them to participate. County planning staff drafted ordinance C-40-14 in response to Initiative 502, the passage of which last year legalized recreational marijuana in the state of Washington. The commissioners also adjusted the lot-size requirement after a couple of resi-

dents said the 250-foot mini- ments is “overkill.” “When the majority speaks, mum lot-line requirement the majority would rule out speaks,” Emerson oddly-shaped parsaid. “We need cels.

Island County Planning Director Dave Wechner speaks about “lot line” requirements in the draft regulations governing recreational marijuana businesses. “Marijuana has been grown in Island County for a very long time,” Price Johnson said. “It’s just been done in a clandestine way. This is a way to bring it out of the shadows. “If there are unforeseen issues that arise, we can address that.” Because changes to the ordinance need to be reviewed by the public, commissioners agreed to extend the public hearing to 10:15 a.m. Monday, May 5.

COUNTY EDC to discuss fair plan, privately

A group of Central Whidbey residents fighting to close the U.S. Navy’s Outlying Field Coupeville brought their case to Freeland Wednesday. Hosted by the Whidbey Island Fellowship of Reconciliation, Citizens of Ebey’s Reserve leaders presented their case to a small crowd of about 15 people, several of whom were North Whidbey residents, at the Unitarian Universalist Congregation. Group leaders, consisting of Ken Pickard, Michael Monson and Maryon Attwood talked briefly about a recent trip to Washington D.C., where they lobbied their cause to federal lawmakers and officials at the Pentagon. “It was a little euphoric,” said Pickard, in reference to

The Island County Fairgrounds proposal to redesign the property and its buildings, criticized for being crafted without public input and held up after vocal opposition, will be discussed by the agency that hired its creator in a closed-door session April 30. Sami Postma, executive assistant of the Island County Economic Development Council, said board meetings are typically closed to the public unless the board president decides to make them public. Wayne Morrison, president of the EDC board, declined to comment. Secrecy around the meeting led to several phone calls to the EDC office by residents interested in the fate of the fairgrounds and the proposal. But Postma said the board which oversees EDC business  including the hiring of Norm LandermanMoore, the consultant who created the fairgrounds proposal   will be reviewing the plan after a few rounds of public presentation and public input.

The rest of the meeting largely consisted of information about Naval Air Station Whidbey Island, it’s plans for growth and the militaries long-range role in the region. The group, commonly referred to as COER, filed a lawsuit last year asking the courts to force the Navy to perform a detailed study look-

ing at noise generated by the EA-18G Growler aircraft. The Navy agreed to do the study, and operations at the airfield have largely been on hold ever since. The Navy has maintained its right to use the airstrip, however, and announced operations would be held Friday, April 25. Members of COER said they planned to attend.

Undersheriff Kelly Mauck said nobody was injured and the shooter’s intention remains unclear. “There is no known motive,” he said, “and no suspect.” Someone fired several shots and hit two houses on the 1900 block of Swantown Road with what investigators believe was a small-caliber handgun, according to Mauck. The shooting was reported at about 5:30 p.m. Sheriff Mark Brown said shell casings were recovered at the scene. Mauck said a small car, possibly a Honda, was seen near the scene, but investigators don’t know if the occupants were involved in the shooting.

Parks district gets its levy bump Voters soundly approved the South Whidbey Parks & Recreation District’s ballot request to continue its maintenance and operation levy Tuesday night. Results updated April 24 show 65.62 percent — 3,288 ballots — of South Whidbey voters said “yes” to the measure, which will increase the existing rate by 3 cents. Beginning Jan. 1, 2015, the new rate will be 18 cents per $1,000 of assessed property value. It’s estimated to generate $118,000 of additional revenue for district coffers. “That’s excellent,” said Don Wood, the parks board president, who had not heard the results on April 22. “That shows the support for the parks and what we do for the community. I’m definitely pleased.” This will be the district’s first levy increase since its founding in 1983. Current commissioners justified the request by citing rising costs, such as fuel and supplies, as well as lower property values around the district — similar reasoning as the South Whidbey School District’s capital levy and the South Whidbey Fire/EMS levy increases approved last year. To get its increase, the district needed a threefifths supermajority vote, which it received from South Whidbey voters. The parks district hopes to restore its budget to 2009 levels — the highest in district history — with a budget of about $707,000. Parks leaders on the board and Director Doug Coutts have

said that the additional funding would not be spent on large capital projects such as an aquatics center that may double as new parks district headquarters; the current building on Maxwelton Road near the main entrance to Community Park is owned by Island County and leased by the parks district. Additional funding is, however, planned to pay for the construction of new picnic shelters and other infrastructure and maintenance capital projects, like a roof on the baseball concession stand building. News of the levy increase approval was welcomed by Krista Loercher, president of the nonprofit South

Whidbey Parks and Aquatics Foundation. The organization did not advocate for the levy measure. “I think we have a terrific parks and recreation district,” she said, adding that she hopes increased funding could go toward expanded aquatics programs. “We would love to find more aquatics programming activities for the community,” Loercher added. “We have a lot of wonderful aquatic resources here: beautiful lakes, shoreline, community pools.” Rather, parks officials said they would focus the funds on the properties and buildings they already own,

Publisher’s column Share the cold, hard facts about impacts of heroin By KEVEN GRAVES

I was raised not to use the world “hate.” My mother used to say, if you “dislike” something, don’t say “hate.” Most of the time I’m conscientious of that little rule. Most of the time. But there are instances when “hate” is the only word available to describe how intensely you feel about something. I hate heroin. I hate what heroin does to people, and not just what it does to those who use it. It’s a drug that shatters lives and families. In today’s edition of the South Whidbey Record, reporter Jessie Stensland covered the increasing heroin use on the island. It’s an important article that I hope every parent and grandparent reads. It’s available online at In the article, Oak Harbor police Detective Carl Seim expresses his fear that use of heroin, which is relatively inexpensive, may be becoming a serious problem in our community. And heroin users seem to be getting younger. Once thought to be a drug used more by hard-core, older addicts, Island County Drug Court coordinator Zachary Lively said he’s seen more 15- and 16-year-olds using heroin. This is frightening information. For her article, Stensland interviewed a heroin user who said heroin started showing up on the island in 2010. He said $20 will buy a user enough heroin to get two people high “for a day and a half.” Just how big of a problem heroin is on Whidbey Island is mostly anecdotal. There aren’t studies or statistics yet that tell us exactly what is going on. But we have representatives from different branches of law and justice telling us that they’re witnessing a troubling trend. Island County Prosecutor Greg Banks and Langley Mayor Fred McCarthy are spearheading a subcommittee on the Island County Law and Justice Council to tackle the problem. This task force deserves the full support of all of Island County’s criminal justice agencies, each of the school districts on the island and parents. Any effort to stem the growth of heroin use will only work if the information is factual. Have heroin users describe for students how shooting up has affected their lives. Sure, there’s a high. But there’s also the crash that follows. And there’s chasing that next high. Allow people to talk about how having a heroin user for a child, brother, sister or parent has hurt their families. Let them talk about the suffering that comes from having a loved one die from an overdose. Ultimately, it won’t be scare tactics that bring down heroin use. It will be the cold, hard truth about how it destroys lives.

Don’t cut the pink tree.


Cherry tree is gorgeous, Glendale decision makes should be preserved Whidbey living good Editor,

Today The Record disappointed me when I read on page 1 about the possible cutting down of the gorgeous pink tree, which happens to presently be in all its glory, because it may be interfering with the second street planning and may be diseased. It doesn’t look diseased to me; and how is it a danger to anyone if it is? This tree’s spring display is something I’ve looked forward to for years and years. The petals fall in a flood on the streets and make for an amazing picture-perfect town. Now why in the world won’t the city consider working around that?

Editor, Kudos to the Island County Council for the reversal of their decision not to buy the Glendale property. This decision to allow the purchase to go through is a huge benefit to the folks living on the South End of our beautiful and wonderful island. All the people who have worked hard to get this done deserve a huge thank you from the South End population. The beach access at Glendale is excellent and the beach itself is a great beach.

sure that Jill Johnson will take some flak from her constituents about this decision. But she stated her reasons why she didn’t vote for this in the first place, and since her concerns about the county being on the financial hook for the property costs in the future have been alleviated, she has reversed her decision. This is what ethical people do. So good for her. And this is good for Island County too. Thanks again to all the people who made this happen. This is one of the main reasons why I love living here. Community involvement and people doing things for other people, even people they don’t know and probably never will. Cheers,

Hiring contractors requires care Editor, In 2002 we hired a local, well-known contractor for a basement remodel including 2,000 square feet of wood flooring. In 2013, the floor lifted due to moisture and rusted nails. We discovered the floor

lacked the necessary vapor barrier, a proper seal to the cement slab, the standard pressure treated sub-flooring and galvanized nails. We were told by the contractor that he cannot help us with any part of the fix which includes removal of everything down to the cement slab. This is devastating to us financially and emotionally and, ultimately, it will likely affect our ability to remain in our home long-term. Here are very important considerations when hiring a contractor: — Confirm a valid license and current bond and insurance through the Department of Labor and Industry. — Ask about any prior complaints, lawsuits or liens and how long the contractor has been in business. — Lawsuits can be filed only within a certain time period once the work is finished per Washington’s laws. — Make certain any contract designates the time period for a guarantee of the work completed.

Page A7

— Ask the contractor who will supervise the project if the sub-contractors licensed and bonded, and how often he will be at the project site. Our contractor was rarely on site and failed to communicate promptly. — Monitor all expense reports and pay only for materials and work completed as defined in a contract. — Never provide funds for a so-called “planning phase.” Include all project changes or requests in writing to the contractor and confirm changes in costs. Unusual delays in the project should reflect a penalty to the contractor. Keep a log of conversations and check weekly on the prog-

ress. The contractor we hired did not care about this project when compared with more profitable opportunities. He did not exercise due diligence over the workers he hired and, apparently, takes no responsibility for the huge burden he has placed on my husband and myself. Requirements for obtaining a contractor’s license are inadequate and fail to protect homeowners. Of consequence, homeowner’s insurance will not cover any contractor’s work that was done improperly.

Fastpitch recovers from rout, beats rivals

Saturday, April 26, 2014 • The South Whidbey Record

Boys golf takes second

By BEN WATANABE South Whidbey Record

Some times, it just isn’t your day. Such was the case for the South Whidbey fastpitch team against Archbishop Murphy on Tuesday, April 22 when the Falcon girls were 10-runned in a 17-1 loss that ended after five innings because of a mercy rule. Other times, things do break way like the 5-4 thriller Thursday that saw South Whidbey keep Coupeville from tying with go-ahead runs and the bases loaded. South Whidbey looked to give the perennial power a run for its money after trailing only 2-1 through the first two innings in the Archbishop Murphy game. Then the Wildcats lit up the Falcons with walks, hits and a few fielding errors to take a 9-1 lead. After holding the Falcons in the third, the Wildcats were patient at the plate and put the ball in play. The result was eight more runs which they held onto for the win. On Thursday, the Falcons turned a page in the story of their season with a 5-4 win over their rivals, the Coupeville Wolves. South Whidbey led from the first inning on and never lost it, though it came close in the final frame. The Wolves loaded the bases with a single by senior Bree Messner and junior Hailey Hammer. A soft, low line drive dropped behind third base at the edge of the infield to load the bases. A fielder’s choice to first base scored the third run for Coupeville and allowed the batter to reach first. Falcon pitcher Kacie Hanson, a freshman, threw for the second out. Another walk brought in another run and kept the bases loaded. A line drive to Falcon second baseman Sarah Merrow hit her mitt and popped out, but she ran to second base for the final force out to preserve the victory.

South Whidbey placed second in the competition at Useless Bay Golf and Country Club through an onand-off rainstorm and strong wind gusts. Oak Harbor won the meet with a low score of 341 strokes through 14 holes, par 55. South Whidbey scored 375 strokes, and Monroe 398, despite having the meet’s medalist in Owen Fenner who finished the shortened round with 57 strokes.

Good times keep bouncing girls tennis team’s way It has been a month since the South Whidbey girls tennis team lost a match after the Falcons swept Coupeville and Lakewood this week. The two victories extended South Whidbey’s winning streak to six matches and boosted its Cascade Conference record to 5-0. On April 22, the Falcons defeated their island rivals, the Wolves, 5-0 for the second

time this season. Isla Dubendorf fought off Coupeville’s top singles player for the past two seasons, Allie Hannigan, 7-5, 6-4. At second singles, South Whidbey sophomore Bayley Gochanour defeated McKenzie Bailey 6-1, 6-1. The Falcons’ top duo of seniors, Tess Radisch and Amelia Weeks, combined to defeat Coupeville’s Samantha Martin and Sydney Aparicio 6-1, 6-1. South Whidbey’s Colleen Groce and Lindsay Oppelt recovered from a second-set loss to win a third-set tiebreaker 10-8. In the third doubles match, Falcons Katrina Layton and Brea Gauger

South Whidbey left a soccer pitch without a win or a loss for the second time this season after tying with Cedarcrest 1-1 in Duvall on Tuesday, April 22. Falcon senior Jaidin Jones scored in the 38th minute to lift South Whidbey. After the halftime break, Chris Cole knocked a shot past Falcon keeper Charley Stelling. Neither team was able to score after that in regulation or two five-minute bonus periods.

defeated Mickey Levine and Valen Trujillo 7-5, 6-1. On Wednesday, the Falcons took on the Lakewood Cougars, a 2A team, and played four singles matches and three doubles matches. South Whidbey also shook up its roster a bit, with different doubles partner combinations. Radisch and Weeks stayed at the top spot and beat Lakewood’s Madde DeYoung and Alex Wolfe 6-1, 6-0. For the second doubles match, Groce paired with Katherine Reed to beat Zaya Tsengelmaa and Lexi Zbiegien 6-0, 6-0. The third doubles team of Falcons Anna

Lynch and Sophie Nilsen beat Lakewood’s Courtney Young and Courtney St. John 6-0, 6-4. In singles, Dubendorf had to fight back from a second-set loss to beat Christina Barker 6-4, 0-6, 7-5. Gochanour cruised through her match in defeating Kylie Staley 6-3, 6-3. Falcon sophomore Kendra Warwick played in the third singles match and defeated Hannah Krutsinger 6-3, 6-0. Macey Bishop nearly shut out Lakewood’s Erin Espeland in a 6-0, 6-1 win.

Land Trust welcomes new conservation director By JANIS REID Staff reporter Ryan Elting is as excited about his new job as his new home. “I’m in love,” Elting said of moving to Whidbey Island this month to serve as conservation director for the Whidbey Camano Land Trust. “My jaw drops every time I see the Olympic Mountains on my way to work. I’m so happy to be able to raise my daughter here.” The position, formerly the land acquisition manager, has been vacant for two years, according to Pat Powell, the Land Trust’s executive director. Powell said the role was upgraded to conservation director for Elting because of the breadth of his experience in natural resource management and land protection. “It’s really what I wanted,” Powell said. “We didn’t think we would find it.” Previously, Elting worked for The Nature Conservancy in North Carolina. In 2008, Elting attended a conference in Vancouver, B.C. and visited Orcas Island where he was taken by the island’s natural beauty and vowed to return. A couple of years later, he attended a wedding on Orcas and met his wife, Marthë, a Northwesterner. They were married and moved to North Carolina and now have a daughter, Alma. The family’s return to Puget Sound allows Marthë to be closer to her family, and the family to experience the Northwest’s endless outdoor opportunities. “We wanted to live in a place where we’d have access to this world-class landscape,” Elting said. “My wife and I both identify with the water and mountains and are constantly inspired by the beauty.” Elting holds a bachelor’s degree in biology and environmental studies from Tufts University and a master’s degree in environmental management from the Nicholas School of the Environment and Earth Sciences at Duke University. Previously he directed longleaf pine forest restoration programs for the North Carolina Chapter of The Nature Conservancy.

Ryan and Marthë Elting stand with their daughter Alma en route to the Whidbey Island. As part of a fellowship he also assisted with land conservation in Zambia, Africa. “When we winnowed down the applications, his was clearly of the most interest,” Powell said. “The passion that came through the cover letter … and he really impressed us in the interview process.” As conservation director, Elting will coordinate land acquisitions and grants, and provide stewardship and restoration of lands already under Land Trust protection. The Land Trust was incorporated in 1984 to

protect the islands’ natural habitats, scenic vistas and working farms in partnership with landowners and the broader community. Elting started his new job April 1 and has jumped into writing grant applications and learning about the Land Trust’s properties and land protection priorities, Powell said. “We could not imagine a better place to raise our family,” Elting said. “An active and vibrant community is important to Marthë and me, and we’re thrilled to be part of one here on Whidbey.”

NOTICE OF AVAILABILITY FOR THE FINAL SUPPLEMENTAL ENVIRONMENTAL IMPACT STATEMENT FOR THE INTRODUCTION OF THE P-8A MULTI-MISSION MARITIME AIRCRAFT INTO THE U.S. NAVY FLEET In accordance with Council on Environmental Quality (CEQ) Regulations (40 Code of Federal Regulations Part 1500), the National Environmental Policy Act (NEPA) of 1969 (42 United States Code 4321); and Department of the Navy (Navy) procedures for implementing NEPA (32 CFR Part 775), the Navy has completed a Final Supplemental Environmental Impact Statement (EIS) for the introduction of the P-8A Multi-Mission Maritime aircraft. The Final Supplemental EIS was prepared to evaluate the potential environmental consequences of providing facilities and functions to dual-site the P-8A at two established maritime patrol home bases. This document supplements the 2008 Final EIS with additional alternatives to provide facilities and functions associated with the proposed home basing action, changes to circumstances at the home base locations, and the latest P-8A project information. In November 2008, the Navy completed the Final EIS for the Introduction of the P-8A aircraft into the U.S. Navy Fleet, which evaluated the environmental impacts of home basing 12 P-8A fleet squadrons (72 aircraft) and one Fleet Replacement Squadron (FRS) (12 aircraft) at three established maritime patrol home bases. A notice of the Record of Decision was published in the Federal Register (FR) on January 2, 2009 (74 FR 100). Since this decision, the Navy determined that home basing P-8A squadrons at two locations could provide potential cost savings while still meeting current strategic operational objectives. The Navy released the Draft Supplemental EIS for public review and comment on September 20, 2013. In compliance with CEQ NEPA regulations, the Navy held open house meetings regarding the Draft Supplemental EIS on November 7, 2013, for NAS Jacksonville and on November 13, 2013, for NAS Whidbey Island. The public comment period for the Draft Supplemental EIS ended on December 2, 2013. The Final Supplemental EIS addresses comments received on the draft version of the Supplemental EIS and identifies Alternative 1 as the preferred alternative. Alternative 1 home bases 6 fleet squadrons plus the fleet replacement squadron at Naval Air Station (NAS) Jacksonville, FL; 6 fleet squadrons in NAS Whidbey Island, WA; a permanent, rotating squadron detachment to Marine Corps Base Hawaii, Kaneohe Bay, HI; and periodic squadron detachments to Naval Base Coronado. Alternative 1 presents the greatest re-use of existing facilities and optimizes manpower, simulators, and facilities at NAS Jacksonville and NAS Whidbey Island. The Notice of Availability was published in the Federal Register on April 25, 2014, beginning a 30-day public waiting period after which the Assistant Secretary of the Navy, or his representative, will sign the Record of Decision. Various federal, state, and local agencies, and other interested individuals and organizations have been notified that the Final Supplemental EIS is available. The Final Supplemental EIS is available for review at and has been distributed for review at the following local libraries: NAS Jacksonville, Florida Webb-Wesconnett Regional Branch Jacksonville Public Library 6887 103rd Street Jacksonville, FL 32210 MCB Hawaii Kaneohe Bay, Hawaii Kaneohe Public Library 45-829 Kamehameha Highway Honolulu, HI 96744 NB Coronado, California Coronado Public Library 640 Orange Avenue Coronado, CA 92118

One link at a time By CELESTE ERICKSON South Whidbey Record

When South Whidbey Elementary School second-grade teacher Leslie Woods saw money exchanging hands during recess last week, her red flags went up. “That’s a big ‘no no’ around here,” she said. But what she found was more Red Cross than red flags. Her students, Syah Benjamin and Niki Taylor, were making rubberband bracelets and selling them to raise money for Oso residents — an idea they hatched completely on their own. It was an act that immediately touched Woods; not just because they were raising money, but that they were doing it without direction from adults. “I am so proud of them,” she said. “They’re so motivated.” For Syah and Niki, making the bracelets was a way to show they cared about the families impacted by the Oso mudslide. “I saw the sad news and wanted to help,” Niki, 7, said. “I feel sad people were hurt; super sad about their homes, beds, everything they had. I was heartbroken when I saw this.” The news hit home for Syah, 8, whose great-uncle’s home was hun-

dreds of feet from being destroyed by the mudslide. “It was right outside his house,” she said. “He can’t get outside his driveway and his basement is flooded with water. I was really sad.” Woods notified her students’ parents of the project by email, including Syah’s mom, Megan Benjamin, who heard about it for the first time. The email mentioned one of the students’ uncle is part of Oso community. “I wondered ‘how many students have uncles up there?’ ” Benjamin said. “She hadn’t said anything about it. I asked her ‘Syah, are you doing a fundraiser?’ ” Syah then revealed to her mom her good Samaritan efforts and what she was doing with all those bracelets. Benjamin said her family was deeply moved about Syah and the other students’ actions as well. They’re doing this out of the goodness of their own hearts; even though it’s a small amount it all adds up and they’re really grateful, she said of her family. “I knew that she felt connected with what was happening,” Benjamin said. “It made me feel so proud that she would have that type of compassion as a young girl.” Syah and Niki originally had their own goal of raising $50, but that

number was surpassed after just one week of fundraising — ­ their goal is now $300. The money raised will be given to the American Red Cross for Oso residents. “It brings to my heart a big bundle of joy,” Niki said of how big the fundraiser has become. After the email, parents started sending money to the fund and nine more students joined the effort. The classmates started bringing their own rubber-band kits to help, and giving up their recess and free time to make the jewelry. For 8-year-old Macie Vande Werfhorst, the project is a fun way to show support and participate in one of her favorite activities. “I love making arts and crafts and helping out,” she said. “I like doing this for everyone.” Woods was happy to see so many other students join. “Everywhere they go they’re either making or selling,” Woods said. The project has impacted the students in a way Woods didn’t expect. When the tragic mudslide happened, Woods decided she wouldn’t bring it up in class because the students were so young. But many had heard about the event through the news, and after they started fundraising it became part of the classroom environment.

Each morning, Woods leads a class meeting where students discuss compassion and generosity in their community. “Now they’re living that kindness through their actions,” she said. “It feels so grown up to me that they’ve taken on this responsibility.” One of the lessons Woods has been teaching her students throughout the year is the value of community. The students started out small, discussing the community within the classroom, and Woods expand-

But with this project, the idea of community has already reached to a global scale for the kids. “They’ve already jumped to the next level, it’s exciting,” she explained. Through this project, Woods hopes the joy of giving will drive students to donate more in the future. She said she was inspired by her students and how good this project made them feel. With each donation, the students quickly calculate their new total and eagerly say the amount out loud in unison. “$171.10!” they said together when asked how much they’ve raised so far. “They’re really motivated. I’m completely motivated by them,” Woods said.

Whidbey Island, as it has in many communities across the nation. Afflicting the young and old, poor and successful, the drug has police and community leaders from Clinton to Oak Harbor worried and scratching their heads trying to figure how to address the growing problem.

A powerful drug While heroin may not be as popular — or perhaps as destructive — as methamphetamine, Detective Carl Seim with the Oak Harbor Police Department worries that the relatively inexpensive, but powerful high from black-tar heroin is making it a plague on the community. And the high is powerful.

Seim, the department’s drug detective, said he’s heard that paramedics sometimes respond to overdoses to find people unconscious with hypodermic needles still sticking in their arms. The paramedics administer an opioid antagonist drug like Naloxone, but the users don’t tend to appreciate the intervention. “Usually they get really mad because it will ruin their high,” he said. Zachary Lively, drug court coordinator for Island County Juvenile and Family Court Services, said he’s seen a definite increase in the number of participants who have used opiates, including both prescription pills and heroin. He said opiate abuse “is making an alarming upward trend and will surpass meth if the arc continues.” Equally troubling, he said, is the age of the users. “It used to be an older per-

The son’s drug, but now we’re seeing young people — 15-year-olds, 16-year-olds — who are using,” Lively said. According to Marks, heroin use isn’t just hitting island youth, but is affecting the ranks of the influential as well. Business owners, community leaders — more are struggling than many think. “I think a lot of people would be surprised to know the people who are hooked on it,” Marks said.

Heroin’s ubiquity


A clear trend

2013 data is currently not available. Washington State Department of Health reports that a total of 23 people in the county were hospitalized for opiate-related overdoses in 2012, as compared to seven a decade earlier. Twelve people died from opiate-related overdoses in 2012, as compared to three people in 2002. Island County Coroner Robert Bishop, however, attributes the majority of opiate-related deaths to prescription medications, such as oxycodone. Bishop said he’s seen little, if any, increase in heroinrelated deaths. About a quarter of participants in drug court in recent years have been opiate abusers, Lively said, but that includes both heroin and pills. There’s a strong connection between prescription drug abuse and heroin, however, said Seim. From speaking with users, he said he learned that many of them start out by getting hooked on pills. Some of them have turned to heroin because the formula for prescription opiates has changed, making it more difficult for abusers to break them down to inject or otherwise abuse. In addition, heroin is much cheaper than pills. Marks agreed, saying many get hooked not because of poverty, but because heroin is a cheap SEE HEROIN USE, A13

in and meth,” he said, “and how it can ruin your life.”


Treatment is key

painkiller. People recovering from a difficult surgery, for example, will turn to it because it’s an affordable alternative to expensive prescription medications that can be harder to acquire.

Where it’s from A 27-year-old North Whidbey man, who asked not to be identified, describes himself as being part of the drug scene. He said heroin started showing up on Whidbey Island in 2010 and has become “an epidemic.” He said $20 can buy enough heroin to get two people high “for a day and a half.” While heroin is very addictive, the man said the worst part is withdrawal, which he describes as a nearly unbearable combination of nausea, diarrhea, agitation, sleeplessness and other side effects. Seim said that, as far as he knows, the heroin on the island is all black-tar, which comes in brownish, vinegary-smelling chunks. The vast majority of the raw material for heroin comes from Afghanistan poppy fields, according to the federal government. The heroin on Whidbey Island likely comes from Mexico, where the Afghanistan opium is turned into the more refined product, Seim said. How it’s getting on the island, however, is not certain. According to Marks, it could be coming from Everett or Bellingham. “I think the bad thing is we really don’t know,” Marks said. “We’re behind the curve here.” Seim advises parents to be aware that pieces of aluminum foil, particularly those criss-crossed with odd-looking line patterns, are one sign that someone may be using heroin. People who smoke heroin, said Seim, often mix it with Coca-Cola that has been heated to a syrup; this sweetens the bitter taste of the drug. The melted concoction is poured in lines on tin foil. The lines are heated with a lighter from below and the smoke is inhaled. Heroin can also be heated into a liquid and injected with a syringe. Seim said addicts talk about “chasing the high” from the first, euphoric time they use. “Teenagers and young people don’t understand the consequences of hero-

As addictive and destructive as heroin is, there is hope — and help. Island County Superior Court, for example, has drug courts for both juveniles and adults. The participants are those who have committed non-violent crimes. They must acquiesce to a tough regimen of drug testing, therapy and supervision. In exchange, the charges against them will be dropped if they graduate. The offenders tend to have serious drug problems and the supervision is rigorous, so it’s remarkable that 53 percent of both juveniles and adults have graduated. Lively notes that opiate addiction has the highest rates of relapse, failure of longterm recovery and overdose deaths. Historically, drug courts are successful at significantly lowering recidivism rates, according to Andrew Somers, assistant court administrator. “Research across the board has shown that when you pair treatment with consequences, you have a much greater success rate,” he said.


Before he was a drug court coordinator, Lively worked as a community corrections officer for the Department of Corrections and, before that, as a police officer in Mount Vernon. He said he’s seen the drug problem “from several different angles.” Both Lively and Somers have decades of experience working with drug users. While they are far from naive — they’ve heard every excuse in the book — they are sympathetic to people who’ve become hooked and believe drug policy should be realistic and practical. Lively pointed out that addiction “rewires” people’s brains; some people have a physical propensity to addiction. He believes addiction should be treated as a medical disorder. Somers agrees. “Access to treatment in the community is critical,” he said.

good partnership,” Brown said. As Island County prosecutor for more than 15 years, Banks successfully handled cases against a half dozen murderers, innumerable rapists, a mayor and one Barefoot Bandit. His tenure hasn’t been without bumps. Most recently, his office, along with just about every department in the county, faced drastic budget cuts which he said resulted in “intolerable case loads.” Last year, after handling a particularly grueling doublemurder case, Banks said he felt completely burned out and decided he wasn’t going to run for his fifth term. Chief Criminal Deputy Prosecutor Eric Ohme, the second in command, made preliminary plans to run. Banks said he had a couple of possible job opportuni-

You may decide to leave on a trip on the spur of the moment. You probably need this break in order to come to a difficult decision and find peace of mind.


You might have to reconsider who your friends really are. Fortunately, some of them could finally manage to repay you what they owe.


Go through your bills and see if any mistakes have been made. You might have to devote a good part of the week to recovering your money.


You finally receive the right treatment where your health is concerned, or you discover a new diet that suits you and brings some quick results.

Your family takes centre stage in your life this week. Your loved ones are very demanding of you. Your plans to move are also looming on the horizon.
