Owner says Dog House Tavern will come down Election

races take shape Dist. 3 county commissioner seat has four candidates By JESSIE STENSLAND South Whidbey Record

A motorcyclist cruises past the Dog House Tavern on May 1. The historic building’s owner says he plans to tear it down after land use requests regarding renovation fell through.

Permit yet to be filed, city hopes for renovation By BEN WATANABE South Whidbey Record The owner of the Dog House Tavern, an iconic century-old building in downtown Langley, plans to tear the historic structure down. As of Friday, a commercial demolition permit application had not been filed at City Hall, but Charlie Kleiner, who with his wife bought the building at a 2010 auction, confirmed in a Thursday interview with The Record plans to destroy the building. Kleiner said they bought the Dog House with

plans to restore it, but now feel demolition is the only viable option. “When we bought the building … it was kind of an albatross,” Kleiner said. “But my wife liked it.” “We thought, if things go our way, we’ll keep the building … It didn’t work out, so down she comes,” he added. The Dog House was the site of the first movie shown in Langley, housed several stores and high school graduations, and is listed on the National Register of Historic Places under its original name The Olympic Club. News of possibly losing the historic building was not welcomed by Bob SEE DOG HOUSE, A20

This image from 1913 shows the former Olympic Club building in Langley after it became the Langley Mercantile and General Merchandise. Its landmark staircase and First Street facade will likely be torn down by the owner.

The general election this fall has the potential of creating a sea of change in Island County government. A total of nine county elected positions are up for grabs. The filing period for those seeking the seats is already close at hand. Candidates must file during the week of May 12. The county positions that will appear on the ballot are assessor, auditor, clerk, commissioner, coroner, prosecutor, sheriff, treasurer and district court judge. In addition, state Rep. Norma Smith, R-Clinton, and Rep. Dave Hayes, R-Camano, are up for reelection and already have challengers; U.S. Rep. Rick Larsen, a Democrat, is likely to be in the same boat. But so far, the only action on the local front appears to be in the commissioner race. Commissioner Kelly Emerson, a Republican representing District 3, said earlier this year that she will not seek re-election. Three Republican candidates and one Democrat have already filed to replace her. Current Republican candidates for commissioner are Robert Bagley of Camano Island, Richard Hannold of North Whidbey and Erhard Hennemann of Camano Island. Democrat Karla Jacks of Camano was the first to throw her hat into the ring. Island County Prosecutor Greg Banks, a Democrat, SEE ELECTIONS, A20

County looks to revive construction debris recycling By JANIS REID South Whidbey Record Island County is looking to revive a program that would recycle and repurpose debris from construction sites. Up until 2012, the county’s wood waste was recycled through Kimberly Clark Corp., according to Gene Clark, the county’s recycle and hazardous waste coordinator.

When the company moved its operations away from woodburned energy to natural gas, the county was forced to throw the wood in with regular municipal waste disposal. “It was something that was on our to-do list,” said Solid Waste Manager Joantha Guthrie. “The impetus was to keep waste out of the landfill.” The county recently has discovered sources to help dispose of

the wood waste as “We’re asking “We’re asking well as other types companies what they of construction can recycle,” Guthrie companies what debris, including said. they can recycle.” asphalt shingles, County staff put Joantha Guthrie , out a request for lead-based paint manager proposals this week and asbestos.

the homeowner or homebuilder who purchases disposal services from the county. In addition, finding creative ways to recycle and repurpose construction debris will lower the county’s overall garbage bill. The county has made a concerted push toward recycling in other areas in recent years. The county implemented a curbside recycling program last year for trash collection subscribers in rural areas.

First responders to fill county need for fire inspections By JANIS REID South Whidbey Record Fire districts will now perform fire inspections for Island County, a service that was provided infrequently following staffing cuts in 2009. Last week, the county entered into an agreement with the county’s four fire districts allowing them to take over inspections. Commissioner Helen Price Johnson, who was in office during the 2009 staffing cutbacks, said restoring the county’s ability to perform regular fire inspections is a good step. “This is an opportunity for us to do two things,” Price Johnson said. “One, to connect the fire inspections with the first responders, which I think is a positive thing, and two, it addresses the needs of the Planning Department.” The Planning Department has a backlog of permitting and large-scale state-mandated projects. Prior to the cutbacks, Island County building official Andy Griffin said, the county conducted more than 800 fire inspections each year. Now, Griffin said he alone performs about two per month, and only when they are required for licensure. In the past, the county took a more active approach in ensuring buildings and new construction were fire safe, he said. “We haven’t been doing the regular inspections since 2008,” Griffin said. “We lost the ability to do that.” South Whidbey Fire/ EMS Chief Rusty Palmer said first responders are eager to use the inspection process to help keep buildings fire safe. “Countywide, they have

The agreement includes Island County Fire District No. 1 on Camano Island, North Whidbey Fire and Rescue, South Whidbey Fire/EMS and Central Whidbey Island Fire and Rescue. The City of Oak Harbor

has its own fire department which already performs fire inspections within the city limits.

WHIDBEY USPS to pick up food donations

A garage sale fundraiser for Jan Quade begins at 9 a.m. Saturday, May 3, at the Whidbey Telecom Office parking lot in Bayview. Quade’s Clinton home was destroyed by Fire in April. No one was injured, but the house and all her belongings were destroyed. Quade is a retired Whidbey Telecom employee, and the company is throwing the garage sale to raise money for her recovery. The event will also include fresh baked goods and barbecued hot dogs. Monetary donations will be accepted at the sale, or they can be made to the Jan Quade Burn Fund at Whidbey Island Bank.

Whidbey Island’s mail carriers will pick up nonperishable food donations Saturday, May 10 as part of the national Stamp Out Hunger Food Drive. Last year, 74 million pounds of food was donated and gathered by United States Postal Service carriers across the country. According to a news release, that fed an estimated 30 million people. To participate, leave non-perishable food donations in a bag by the mailbox May 10.

Concrete mostly poured, Second Street project set to wrap in June By BEN WATANABE South Whidbey Record

Ben Watanabe / The Record

Cody Larson, an employee of Sedro-Woolley-based Schwetz Construction, cleans off part of the concrete pavement on Second Street on Thursday. Work on the road is on a Monday-through-Thursday schedule.

A crew works on sections of sidewalk near Useless Bay Coffee Company and Langley City Hall on May 1. and through the construction — even to his chagrin, given that he’s wary of people tripping, slipping or stepping into unfinished concrete. Woody also commented on the nature of the project, a bit of placemaking in Langley as well as infrastructure. “They’re trying to breathe a breath of fresh air in Langley, and I think it’ll work,” he said. Access issues plagued the project and businesses on Second Street. Leadership from the South Whidbey Commons has cited the proj-

ect as a major cause in its decrease in business since January, and the crews had

to ensure that the Animal Hospital by the Sea had an access at all times. That caused the concrete company to section the north sidewalk, leaving a large swath unfilled so animal owners could get in and out of the veterinarian’s office. Making accommodations like that, and general pleasantries with the public, have made the interruptions to the normally sleepy seaside city tolerable, McCarthy said. “They’ve been extraordinary in the positive interactions with community members,” he said.


Trucks and backhoes and tractors are parked on Second Street, and that’s about it in the fifth month of the major overhaul of the Langley road. As crews worked to finish pouring and smoothing concrete in the road and sidewalks, vehicle access to the street ended. That included the entry to the Langley Post Office, which was earlier given a public access to Third Street as part of the project. Work remains close to the original timeline, and Langley Mayor Fred McCarthy was pleased with the progress. “They’re moving really well,” he said. “I still feel that this is a really good project, pretty much on schedule.” Added costs and change orders have amounted to about $130,000, McCarthy said, which was within the project’s contingency of 10 percent of the project budget total. The composition of the soil underneath Second Street made for a poor base, so new soil was used to fill in several spots. A fire hydrant that was discovered to be on private property, and not the city’s right of way, was relocated as well. “We’ve had a few surprises along the way that had costs associated with them, but the costs are within a normal contingency,” McCarthy said. Originally scheduled for an early June finish, Rory Woody, the construction inspector with the main contracted company, said the whole project is in its final month and appears to be on track to wrap by as early as June 12. He remarked about the pedestrian culture in Langley and said he’s noticed plenty of foot traffic around

Property appraisals are necessary, responsible

Public entities don’t have to get an appraisal before purchasing property. That was news to a spokesman for the Washington State Auditor’s Office, a state lawmaker and undoubtedly many local officials who have been operating under the assumption that an appraisal was needed for years. And it’s something that must change or the public will risk losing tax dollars on irresponsible land deals made behind closed doors. The lack of any such rule regarding the purchase price of property for public purposes was highlighted in April when Whidbey General Hospital leaders started looking into the possibility of selling a 4.5-acre property in Bayview on South Whidbey. The South Whidbey Record recently reported, after submitting a public records request, that the hospital purchased the property in 2008 for $2 million without doing an appraisal even though the assessed value at the time was $618,000. While hospital officials will get an appraisal if they decide to sell the property, as is required by law, they admit that there will likely be a financial loss if they move forward with the sale of the property they no longer have a use for. The decision-making process for purchasing the land from Verlane Gabelein at that price is unclear. All the commissioners and leading hospital officials involved in the deal — then chief executive officer Scott Rhine and then chief financial officer Doug Bishop — are no longer with the district, and some of the discussions took place in executive sessions. All of which illustrate the potential pitfalls with the current system. The hospital’s board of commissioners should acknowledge that the former members of their board did not act responsibly in neglecting to get an appraisal. Just because the law didn’t require them to doesn’t mean it wasn’t the right thing to do; they weren’t real-estate experts, after all. The current board should consider adopting a policy regarding land acquisition to ensure funds are spent wisely now and in the future. It’s just common sense. As for the larger picture, Rep. Norma Smith, R-Clinton, was one of those surprised by the gap in the law. She vowed to look into the issue and possibly find a legislative fix. Hopefully she moves forward in earnest. Some might argue that public officials need to be able to negotiate the price of property or risk losing to private sector bidders. Perhaps some flexibility is needed, but currently public officials could conceivably decide — in a secret, closed-door session — to pay just about any amount for a property that later turns out not to suit their needs. That opens the door to potential corruption or incompetence. It’s tax dollars, after all.

Letters Warning

Marijuana farms could ignite future trouble Editor, I recently delivered some firewood to some folks in a very rural part of the South End of the island and saw a sign on my way there that proclaimed “Fiber Farm.” I am doubtful that they are producing dietary fiber and wondered if they realize what they are doing. They are virtually inviting any less than honest passerby to steal their crop. I saw that happen a lot in the “Emerald Triangle” in California in the 1970s where it became quite dangerous to venture near another person’s property for fear of encountering attack dogs or armed guards. Three were disturbing instances of beatings, rip-offs, and murders over

the highly valuable crop. Some inventive rip-off artists even came up with uniforms of delivery people or posed as government employees. You might think that our circumstance is different because of legalization. But legalization does not change the fact that a well-groomed pot garden is worth thousands of dollars and is quick, easy money for crooks. Legal pot is going to change the nature of our rural areas in Washington to a culture where trust of neighbors and strangers is a thing of the past. Some people are going to learn some heartbreaking lessons and pay some very high prices. But I suppose it is silly of me to be concerned about that because the people who grow it probably smoke it too, and are not inclined to worry about it. But please don’t call the cops for help when you do get ripped off

Rally lands Falcons home playoff game By BEN WATANABE South Whidbey Record South Whidbey’s baseball players were all smiles and hugs after pulling out a 5-4 rally win in their final regular season home game. More than that, the Falcons secured a home game in the 1A District 1 playoffs starting May 6. At worst, South Whidbey will finish in fourth place in the Cascade Conference standings, but could end up in second place if it beat Granite Falls on Friday, after The Record went to press. “Our team battled, stayed up and got the win, like we have so many times this year,” said Falcon senior Colton Sterba, who pitched a complete game. Granite Falls struck early with three consecutive singles to load the bases. A passed ball brought home the first Tiger score before a groundout to Falcon second baseman Trent Fallon got the first out at the expense of another run. A sacrifice fly to right fielder Charlie Patterson brought in the third run before a flyout to deep center field ended the damage. The Tigers made a pitching change after the second inning. Starting pitcher Chris Gentry came out, and first baseman Greg Barnett was brought in. He continued to hold the Falcons scoreless for two innings. Then South Whidbey’s hitters caught on in the fifth inning by hitting through the order. Falcon senior CJ Sutfin reached first on a four-pitch walk. Jake Sladky, a senior, laid down a bunt between first base and the pitcher’s mound that enabled both him and Sutfin to safely reach base. With Mo Hamsa, a junior, at the plate, Sladky got caught in a pickle and safely dove back to first base to keep two runners on base. Hamsa chopped a RBI single over first base that drove in Sutfin. Ricky Muzzy, a sophomore, launched a shot to deep center field that seemed to be in the outfielder’s sights, but it went past his glove for an unearned run. Charlie Patterson reached base after taking a pitch to his back. Sterba rocketed the ball to deep center for a sacrifice fly that scored the tying run. With two outs, junior Brent Piehler, the fourth batter in the lineup, knocked a RBI single to center field. Nick Bennett, a senior, followed with the eventual winning run by pulling a single past the third baseman. Relief pitcher Alex O’Neill was

Big hits like that always start off big innings,” Bennett said. “Scoring five runs in one inning, it’s big,” he added. “But we need to score consistently, in more than just one inning.” Sterba found his groove as the game wore on, eventually striking out seven batters. He gave up five hits, three of which led to scores in the first inning, and a pair of doubles by Granite Falls senior Riley Larsen in which he was left on base. Granite Falls came within one run after a ground ball to Muzzy took a hop over his mitt and headed near second base, bringing in a two-out run to cut the lead to 5-4. After the second Larsen double in the seventh inning, South Whidbey head coach Tom Fallon strolled out to the pitcher’s mound and called in the defense. At no point did he discuss pulling Sterba. “I just kept battling,” Sterba said. “All I had to do was say I was fine and they kept their faith in me.” Sterba struck out the next batter, but hit the following batter in the arm.

Saturday, May 3, 2014 • The South Whidbey Record

Soccer reigns in Sultan shutout Deja vu may have hit the players on South Whidbey and Sultan’s boys soccer teams Tuesday as the Falcons beat the Turks 5-0 for the second time this season. Kai da Rosa, a junior, led the way with his first hat trick — three goals in a single match — of the year. Oliver Saunsaucie, a junior, scored on an assist from da Rosa, and Andy Zisette, a junior midfielder, scored. Each goal came on an assist from five different players: Jaidin Jones to da Rosa, Anders Bergquist to Zisette, Davin Kesler to da Rosa, James Itaya to da Rosa, and da Rosa to Saunsaucie. “We played well, played wide, and moved the ball really well. I couldn’t ask for more,” said Falcon co-head coach Emerson “Skip” Robbins. “Usually we get scoring from a lot of different people,” he added. South Whidbey had two matches left in the regular season, and both mattered to the Falcons’ postseason position. On Friday, after The Record went to press, South Whidbey visited the Cascade Conferenceleading Archbishop Murphy squad. In the previous match, the Wildcats left Waterman Field with a narrow 1-0 victory. Since then, Archbishop Murphy lost to King’s (2-1) and Cedarcrest 2-0. King’s was the fourthplace team in the league behind third-place South Whidbey. The two are in a duel for the top spot as the top two 1A teams in the conference, which affects seeding in the 1A District 1 tournament next week.

That meant each of the remaining league games could impact South Whidbey’s standing, and put ample pressure on the Falcons to win out. On Robbins’ and co-head coach Joel Gerlach’s minds were four players who sat out of Tuesday’s match. The Falcons played the Turks without starters Bryce Auburn, Lucas Leiberman and Kameron Donohoe, all of whom were out sick. Jeff Meier, a junior, has been sidelined with an injury that limited his ability to cut left and right. He was still able to spell junior keeper Charley Stelling in the second half Tuesday, and they combined for the shutout. The last match between South Whidbey and Archbishop Murphy was effectively decided in the first 10 minutes when the Wildcats got a quick goal. The Falcons found themselves scrambling around the field, out of formation, which allowed the fast score. Robbins said he planned to use the same formation as last time and would not give a pre-game pep talk, unlike last time. “I think I gave one of my best motivational speeches before that game,” Robbins laughed, adding that he wanted to avoid getting the players too excited or too downtrodden. “I’ll let the motivation come from within,” he said.

with different lineups in the two matches. Against Cascade Conference opponents Lakewood on April 29 and at Granite Falls on May 1, South Whidbey won each match 7-0. “They are willing to play wherever and with whomever I need them to … I think it’s paid off to work on both singles and doubles — they are becoming better rounded tennis players and that’s not only helping us when we need to change the lineup, but it’s helping them develop their games and their confidence,” said Falcon head coach Karyle Kramer in an email. On Thursday against Granite Falls, South Whidbey did not lose a single set. In singles: Isla Dubendorf defeated Laura Gilbertson 6-1, 6-1; Katrina Layton defeated Brianna Cervarich 6-2, 6-1; Lindsay Oppelt defeated Holly Carry 6-1, 6-3; and Kendra Warwick defeated Stephanie Selia 6-1, 6-2.

Colleen Groce and Bayley Gochanour defeated Annie Hart and Mckenzie Meyer 6-3, 6-4 after coming back from a 3-0 deficit in the second set; and Alexa Hess and Kara Mead defeated Emma Loney and Brynne Mota-Soriano 6-1, 6-2. Play went quickly on Tuesday against Lakewood as South Whidbey won every set. Singles: Weeks defeated Christina Barber 6-1, 6-2; Radisch defeated Kylie Staley 6-0, 6-2; Sophie Nilsen defeated Jackie Stover 6-2, 6-0; and Groce defeated Hannah Krutsinger 6-4, 6-2. Doubles: Dubendorf and Gochanour defeated Alex Wolf and Maddie de Young 6-1, 6-2; Layton and Brea Gauger defeated Zaya Tsengelmaa and Lexi Zbiegien 6-4, 6-2; and Oppelt and Hess beat Courtney Young and Courtney St. Jean 7-6 (7-3), 6-0.

Lake fishing off to a quiet start By CELESTE ERICKSON South Whidbey Record Well into its first week of the year, lowland lake fishing season began with a calm start. For South End fishing guru Bob Crouch, this season started with an unexpected silence from his end as the angling expert at Sebo’s in Bayview. “Not a single person has come in and said anything about what they’ve caught,” he said Thursday afternoon. Crouch explained sometimes the fish are hard to catch when the water is still cold earlier in the season. Many people came into the store on opening day, April 26, and were excited to cast their first line for one of the more than 15,000 stocked rainbow trout in Deer, Lone and Goss lakes. Customers have taken to the traditional bait of marshmallows, trout eggs, power bait, trolling spoons and rooster tails, he said. “All sorts of regular old stuff

Kids Fishing Derby The season continues with the Holmes Harbor Rod & Gun Club’s annual Kids Fishing Derby from 9 a.m. to 1 p.m. Saturday, May 10 on Lake Albert in Maple Glen. Proceeds from the event, which is open to the public, benefit the Holmes Harbor Scholarship Fund. The derby is open for children ages 14 and under. The lake will be stocked with rainbow trout and prizes will be given for the largest fish. Bring fishing gear and bait; hot dogs and drinks will be provided. For more information call 360-221-8494. that usually works,” Crouch said. Crouch typically sees a lot of fishing customers return during the first week to share stories. “Sometimes with no warm weather before opening day the fish don’t bite because the water is still cold,” he said. On the lakes a handful of fishing enthusiasts have staked their spot on the water and are waiting. Kirkland resident Robert McLee had a satisfying morning May 1 fishing on Lone Lake. “I had some good fishing, it was a pretty good day,” he said. McLee visits the island for its

prime fishing every few weeks. This trip he caught some rainbow trout but threw them back. On Thursday, a dozen people were on the Bayview-area lake, and McLee expected to see more as the weather gets warmer. “It’s just starting to get good, the water is starting to be the right temperature,” he said. “It will get better and improve throughout the month.” Everett resident John Payton traveled to fish and camp on the lake after spending some time in Anacortes at Heart Lake. This was his first time at Lone

Tom Gideon: high-tech to high community activism By SHERRYE WYATT For The Record Tom Gideon was living comfortably in Woodinville. It was a place filled with nice folks with good careers, big

homes and fancy cars. He fit in, certainly, and was grateful for what he had. Except something was missing. He didn’t want his life to be just about “getting stuff.”

He craved active community engagement. He wanted to focus on the kind of involvement that has a positive impact on peoples’ lives. So Gideon and his wife Susan, having newly become empty nesters after their son Eric went off to college, made a big move — not so much in miles as in lifestyle. They settled on Whidbey Island in a home near Bayview and found the kind of social interaction they were craving. “People on Whidbey volunteer for so many things, from watering the town’s landscaping to being an EMT,” Gideon said. “The community spirit here is just amazing.” Gideon found his own way to make a difference in his new community. He volunteered for South Whidbey Hearts & Hammers, a non-profit group that brings neighbors together to help repair and rehabilitate homes of those who are physically or financially unable to do the work alone. But he wanted to give back even more. Reading


Tom Gideon the local newspaper, he spotted an ad for volunteers for South Whidbey Fire/EMS. So in 2008, he enrolled in the fire academy and, soon after, became a volunteer fire fighter. “Firefighting by its nature is risky, but the interaction with the community and the other volunteers is worth it,” Gideon said. “We are all members of a team, and we’ve got each other’s backs.” Gideon says there’s a rare level of respect within the

fire district’s ranks. and builds his own tele“My management theory scopes.

Sunrise: Feb. 10, 1927 ~ Sunset: April 27, 2014 Barbara Moss died at her

home in Langley, Wash., following a brief, but courageous battle with cancer. She was born in Milford, Neb., to the late Roxa Scott and graduated from Minatare High School in 1944. She married the late Dick Moss in October 1946. Barbara lived and worked in the small town of Minatare, Neb., for many years where she was secretary to Superintendent of Schools Earl G. Curtis, and secretary for long-time city clerk Agnes Kelso. In 1982 she moved to Whidbey Island and lived on Columbia Beach until

moving to Wheel Estates in 2004. She loved the beach and her roses, but also enjoyed her small community of friends in Wheel Estates when she could no longer live on the beach. Barbara was a longtime active member of St. Augustine’s in-the-Woods Episcopal Church. Her many years of service on the Episcopal Church Women’s board included roles as president, secretary, and Caring Ministry leader. She was a member of the church vestry, faithful reception volunteer, and passionate member of the Altar Guild.

She also baked congregational communion bread for many years. She was a charter member of the American Legion Auxiliary and Royal Neighbors. She loved her bingo family and played every week. She enjoyed reading and she was a terrific cook! Barbara is survived by her three daughters: Jeanne Rucker, of Overland Park, Kansas; MaryBeth Moss and Janet McNeely (Dave), of Clinton, Wash.

At work, you could be offered a promotion, which will allow you to calm some of your financial worries. You finally see a more brilliant future ahead of you.


You only need a little bit of rest to recover your dynamism and enthusiasm. You receive some inspiration that opens your way towards a form of spirituality that appeals to you.


You have a great imagination. You may very well undertake a great masterpiece that is profitable in some way. Freshening up your home’s décor is a good initiative to pursue.


You are in charge of an event that brings together a lot of people. This responsibility allows you to discover a new facet of yourself: you can overcome your shyness.


You have some new responsibilities to shoulder. At work, these new tasks allow you to develop some skills that could eventually lead to a pay increase.

Waterman, president of the South Whidbey Historical Society and chairman of the Langley Historic Preservation Commission. “It is sort of the icon of the city in terms of the publicity for the city,” Waterman said. “It anchors that corner of the downtown where the town actually began at the intersection of Anthes [Avenue] and First Street … It is a symbol of Langley that would be a terrible shame if it was no longer there.” Kleiner blamed rising costs to renovate the historic building and difficulty working with the City of Langley concerning easement issues, as the basis for the decision to pursue demolition rather than restoration. He said he had the full support of former mayor Larry Kwarsick, and later

concern was trying to keep its historic First Street and Hladky Park facades. As a member of the historical society, he tried to have the Kleiners add the building to the city’s register, which would have included a 10 percent reduction in property taxes but would also have added a significant step in demolition of the building by requiring the local register chapter’s approval. Even with his ties to the building and its history, like the story of a woman who gave birth on a pool table in the formerly-named Howard’s Confectionery, Waterman understood that renovation would cost more than new construction, despite tax credits and possible grants. “Many old buildings, it’s better to repurpose them,” Waterman said. “This Dog House would need a lot of restoration, a lot of shoring up just to make it safe.”

Kleiner, however, seemed resolute in his plan to be done with the Dog House Tavern and instead build something new. He couldn’t say for sure what will be built in its place but did say it would not look “anything like the current structure” and that any future structure would bring a financial return, such as a condominium or a commercial space for a business. “The least expensive way out is a new building,” Kleiner said. “Nothing’s going to change on this,” he added. “People have dug in their heels, and I just don’t have the time or ambition to deal with these things.” He did not give a timeline for when demolition and construction might begin, saying he only recently came to the conclusion that he wanted to tear it down. Langley’s first stopgap will be its Design Review Board, which would approve of the building permit. The board’s meeting would be public, and would include public comment, though the group could not legally deny a building permit based on public objections alone — the decision is based on whether the Kleiners have met requirements outlined in city code to qualify for a demolition permit. “They have to make their decisions based on the existing laws and regulations,” Arango said. “Public input is always part of the decision. But they have to follow the rules and regulations.”


initially didn’t plan to run again, but announced that he changed his mind last week. Assessor Mary Engle, Clerk Debra Van Pelt, Sheriff Mark Brown and Treasurer Ana Maria Nuñez have already filed with the state Public Disclosure Commission. In state races, Camano Island resident Michael Scott, a Libertarian, is running for Rep. Smith’s seat. Nicholas Petrish, a Democrat in Mount Vernon, plans to run against Rep. Hayes. Candidates may file electronically, through the U.S. mail or in person at the Elections Office in Coupeville, which is at 400 North Main Street. The Elections Office will be open Monday, May 12, through Friday, May 16, from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. To file electronically, candidates can go to, select “elections” in the green menu bar at the top of the page and follow the prompts for online filing. The Auditor’s Office suggests that candidates retain copies of their online filings. For election-related questions, call 360-6797366 or email elections@
