Dentist dies in weekend blaze

Honoring lives that were lost on 9/11

By JESSIE STENSLAND Staff reporter

A former Coupeville dentist was killed in a fire at his Central Whidbey Island home early Saturday morning. Matthew Nieder was 67 years old, according to the Island County Coroner’s Office. Oak Harbor Fire Chief Ray Merrill is investigating the cause of the blaze. He said Tuesday that it will likely be ruled undetermined because the extent of the fire damage makes it difficult to find evidence. There is no evidence of foul play or arson, according to both Merrill and Detective Rick Felici,

Burley Funeral Home placed nearly 3,000 flags in a nearby field Sunday to commemorate the lives lost during the terrorist attacks of Sept. 11, 2001. The flags were placed by Boy Scout Troop No. 59 and Girl Scout Troop No. 42583 and will be on display through Sept. 13. ommunity members are being invited to place a flag in honor of their loved ones lost on Sept. 11, 2001. Burley Office Manager Cathy George said the funeral home staff came up with idea after a discussion about how they wanted to commemorate the day. A flag for each lost life seemed appropriate, George said. “Once we started mapping out the space, it sort of took your breath away,” George said. “Looking at all those flags and thinking each one was a person.” On Thursday, the Navy Region Northwest Fire and Emergency Services Battalion 3 will memorialize the attack during a Patriot Day ceremony starting at 7:55 a.m. Police, sheriff, fire and rescue units from all over the island will be in attendance. The event will be held at the Whidbey Island Naval Air Station headquarters flag pole and will include a short ceremony led by base commander Capt. Mike Nortier.

Environmental activists say they’ll challenge Island County in the Western Washington Growth Management Hearings Board again if major changes aren’t made to fish, wildlife and habitat regulations. “We don’t have any choice,” said Marianne Edain, representing the Whidbey Environmental Action Network, or WEAN. Commissioners plan to review and possibly approve a final draft of the county’s Critical Areas Ordinance under the state-mandated Fish and Wildlife Habitat Conservation Areas update. WEAN said the county’s latest draft falls short of their court-mandated need to update environmental protections. A Thurston County judge agreed with WEAN earlier this year that the county’s two ordinances dealing with wetlands on farmland must be revised. The lawsuit was filed in 2006. County leadership said they disagreed with the ruling, but opted not to appeal and focus on addressing the issues during the fish and wildlife update this year. While friction between farmers’ rights and environmental protections has been a key debate during the update process, WEAN said the county is avoiding the intention of the Growth Management Act.

“They’re failing the GMA,” said Steve Erickson, also of WEAN. “The county is continuing its long tradition of putting in the bare minimum protections and hoping it will squeak by.” The group initially challenged the county’s treatment of wetlands on farmland in 2000 and won. The Hearings Board agreed in that case that a county ordinance exempting all agriculture from wetland protection was contrary to the GMA. Among WEAN’s top concerns with the county’s Critical Areas Ordinance, in addition to the protection of wetlands in agricultural areas, is the protection of prairie remnants, which Erickson said is among the rarest habitats in North America. “They’re considered probably the most endangered habitat in Western Washington and the county is refusing to protect it,” Erickson said. WEAN would also like to see the county create a protective designation for plant habitats and place a priority on the protection of the endangered Western Toad. “The only way the county is going to protect the environment is if they are ordered to,” Erickson said. WEAN has 60 days from the publication date of the updated ordinance to file a challenge with the hearings board.

Land Trust faces deadline in beach purchase The Whidbey Camano Land Trust announced it must raise $314,450 by Sept. 30 in order to purchase 420 feet of low-bank beach and forested uplands at Glendale on southeast Whidbey. The beach is at the mouth of Glendale Creek, one of only two salmon streams on Whidbey, according to a Land Trust press release. Three adjacent properties came on the market simultaneously, giving the Land Trust a unique opportunity to acquire and protect a rare stretch of accessible Whidbey beach. The Land Trust plans to

own and manage the properties and Island County will simply acquire a conservation easement that removes all development rights and ensures permanent public beach access. This same ownership model has succeeded with the 654acre Trillium Community Forest located just north of Freeland. Island County has applied for two state grants to purchase the conservation easement. If awarded, the state grants will cover all but $500,000 of the project’s $1.5 million total cost. The Land Trust plans to

open the Glendale beach access next summer after the state grants are awarded, the site is made safe, and parking and other facilities are established. At that time, the beach will be available to the public for swimming, fishing, kayaking, beachcombing, or simply enjoying spectacular views across Possession Sound. The Land Trust said it will also work with the Washington Department of Natural Resources to carry out shoreline restoration work. n To donate, go to www. wclt.org or call 360-222-3310.

Man hiding in China badgering sheriff online By JESSIE STENSLAND Staff reporter

Former Clinton resident Michael Farrens gets his photo taken on a street in China. He’s wanted on a $10,000 warrant. He said he and his wife fear the Island County Sheriff’s Office. bor’s home. Farrens is wanted on a $10,000 warrant issued by Island County Superior Court. Prosecutors charged him on Sept. 11, 2013 with assault in the third degree and felony eluding. Norrie was a sergeant with the Island County Sheriff’s Office when he clocked Farrens speeding on State Highway 525 in Clinton Jan. 19, 2013, according to Norrie’s report on the incident. The deputy said he turned on his emergency lights and pursued Farrens, who allegedly led him on a chase in dense fog through a Clinton Foodmart parking lot to Deer Lake Road and eventually to Possession Ridge Lane.

Farrens stopped at his home. Norrie and another deputy pulled him from his car while Farrens resisted, according to the report. Farrens allegedly head-butted Norrie in the face while he was being seat belted in the back of Norrie’s car. “The defendant intentionally violently moved his head forward striking me in the left nose — left eye socket,” Norrie wrote. Farrens also allegedly threatened Norrie. “The defendant also implied his wife was a known Chinese mafia associate and would end my life for the injustice served him,” Norrie wrote.

geant at the time, allowed one of his patrol deputies to drive home drunk on Whidbey Island. As reported in the Whidbey News-Times at the time, Norrie met the deputy on the side of the road to discuss why she was late for her shift. He smelled alcohol on her breath and gave her a preliminary breath test, which showed a 0.119 blood-alcohol level. Norrie told the woman to drive directly home in her patrol car, but immediately realized his mistake and called the then-sheriff to explain what happened. This week, Norrie said that there was more to the story, but that he admitted he made a mistake and took the consequences. Mark Brown, the current sheriff, named Norrie as the Coupeville town marshal after the sheriff’s office took over law enforcement in the town early this year. Farrens’ video has photos of Norrie, used without permission, from the Whidbey Examiner with text from the P-I story. Farrens claims he was banned from the sheriff’s Facebook page because of his critiques of deputies. But Wallace, who administrates the site, said Farrens was banned because of his continued use of profanity. Records show Farrens was warned not to use profanity, but continued to do so with some rather creative phrases. Farrens was recently blocked from posting on the Whidbey News Group websites for violating the commenting guidelines.

Norrie, a certified drug recognition expert, believed that Farrens showed signs of both alcohol and marijuana impairment. A breath test showed Farrens had a blood-alcohol level of .055 percent, which is below the legal limit. Farren’s version of the incident is that he was recovering from surgery, had one beer with dinner and was followed home by Norrie, not “pursued.” In a message to the Whidbey News-Times, Farrens said the deputies tried to “railroad” him because they were sure he was driving drunk. Farrens claimed Norrie shot at him and then assaulted him, nearly breaking his arm. “At that point I became very agitated with the way I

A former South Whidbey man who’s hiding from the long arm of the law in China was banned recently from the Island County Sheriff’s Office Facebook for trollish activities, according to Detective Ed Wallace. Trolling is defined as being “deliberately offensive” or “provocative online posting” aimed at upsetting someone or eliciting an angry response from them. Michael Farrens has been a thorn in the sheriff’s cyberspace side since his mugshot was posted on the sheriff’s Facebook page last month. He accused the sheriff’s office of discriminating against him by posting his mugshot and of illegally arresting him in a felony eluding case from 2013. Since then, Farrens created an oddly psychedelic Youtube video criticizing Coupeville Marshal Rick Norrie, who arrested him in the 2013 case, and launched a Facebook page of his own with a petition to get Norrie fired. Norrie said he heard about Farrens’ shenanigans, but has chosen to ignore them because he doesn’t want to lower himself to that level. “I’m just a guy who does a job,” Norrie said. Farrens was known to law enforcement on South Whidbey before he moved to China. In one case, a Clinton couple came home to find Farrens naked and lying in a fetal position in their shower, according to documents obtained through a records request. Farrens claimed he was shackled and bound by pirates, the deputy’s report said. Farrens explained in an email that he was recovering from gum graft surgery when he went into the neigh-

was being treated and resisted his attempts to try and assault me further,” Farrens wrote. “The other two officers at that point became active with the struggle. They put me in the back of Norrie’s cruiser and instead of closing the door and leaving me alone they piled in on top of me and started hitting me.” Farrens claims he did not make the comment about his wife, but that Norrie twisted his words. Farren said he never heard anything from the courts for many months, so he and his wife moved to China. Records showed he wasn’t charged until eight months after the incident. “I am currently living in China because both me and my Chinese wife were in fear of our safety after this happened,” he wrote. According to records from the Sheriff’s Office, an analysis of blood taken from Farrens that night show that he also had 15ng/mL of active THC in his system, which is three times the current — but controversial — legal limit. Wallace said the delay in charging Farrens was partly because investigators were waiting for the results. For the record, Norrie said he didn’t shoot at Farrens or assault him. In his video about Norrie, Farrens highlights a 2007 Seattle Post-Intelligencer story, “Some cops get free passes when stopped for DUI.” The story is critical of the former Island County sheriff’s handling of a 2003 incident in which Norrie, a ser-

Whidbey homes featured on tour By RON NEWBERRY

ven after 36 years of painting homes on Whidbey Island, Phil Broderick can still feel a little uneasy when a customer deadline approaches. That feeling was only enhanced recently by his company’s latest big project in Coupeville — ­ a custom home built by Cascade Custom Homes & Design that will be featured in this weekend’s Skagit/Island Counties Builders Association Home Tour. Broderick, owner of Coupeville-based Sound Colors Painting, was putting the finishing touches on the master bathroom Tuesday and recalling how he’s been laying awake in the wee hours of the morning recently, visualizing painting the home’s interior. “I get up and say, ‘I might as well just go to work!’ ” he said with a laugh. The home at 508 NE Third St. is one of 10 houses in Island and Skagit counties that are a part of the self-guided tour, which runs Friday through Sunday.

Tickets are $10 and are available at each of the homes on the tour (www.sicbahome tour.org) as well as the SICBA office in Burlington. Five of the homes featured are on Whidbey Island with three in Oak Harbor, one in Coupeville and one in Langley.

Fidalgo Rehabilitation Center 1105 27th street, Anacortes 360-293-3174 I had surgery at Island Hospital for a bone spur removal. My Orthopedic Surgeon, Dr. Stacia Smith recommended that I have inpatient rehabilitation services. The discharge planning team from Island Hospital understood my needs and were able to refer me to Fidalgo Rehabilitation Center. I have had this type of surgery before but it is never routine. The pain and rehab is always tough. I was discharged from the hospital on a Sunday and was happily greeted at Fidalgo by Travis the Physical Therapist. He did an assessment and started my therapy that same day. Since then I have had physical and occupational therapy twice a day. The rehab team not only encourage me to keep going but they are always problem solving. I have worked with Jesse (Physical Therapist), who has introduced a new technique for amputees called “mirror therapy”. I appreciate his kindness, humor and creativity. Mary (Occupational Therapist), has also been wonderful to work with she makes everything positive and pleasant. I am also impressed with the RN staff. They are proactive in helping me control my pain and are very competent in working with Dr. Llewellyn and Diane, the Nurse Practitioner, regarding my status. My appreciation continues for the entire staff who never lack smiles or offers to help. Everyone has been patient and genuinely kind. I would like to recognize Jericka, CNA, she is phenomenal and always aware I need something before I ask. She always brightens my day. Zack, morning CNA, is very considerate and caring. He even comes to visit on his days off. Brian, night shift CNA is also exceptional. His physical strength matches his big heart. This team has given me and my family the confidence that I will leave Fidalgo Rehab with the ability to independently continue my daily routines.

Phil Broderick of Coupeville-based Sound Colors Painting puts the finishing touches on the master bathroom of a custom home in Coupeville that will be featured in the Skagit/Island Counties Builders Association Home Tour Sept. 12-14. & Design is one of those green examples. The two-story, 2,230-square -foot structure is a contemporary, modern-style home with a daylight basement and view of Penn Cove. The main floor features an open concept with vaulted ceilings and an abundance of windows to let in natural light. That space connects to a kitchen that features granite countertops and stainlesssteel appliances. “The main living floor is completely intact,” said Jon Roberts, president of Cascade Custom Homes & Design. “If somebody never had to go downstairs, everything is completely available to them. This is a home you can live in forever. You can

The home by Landed Gentry Homes is part of the Castle Pines Collection in the Fairway Point neighborhood and serves as a model home. It is a 2,935-square-foot, four-

bedroom, three-bathroom Craftsman-style house on the Whidbey Golf Club course. It is located at 2930 SW Fairway Point Drive. Yonkman Construction’s home is a 3,173-square-foot, three bedroom surrounded by 10 heavily wooded acres on North Whidbey. It is located at 182 Lake Wood Place. The SICBA home tour has returned for the second straight year, after the event wasn’t held in 2011 and 2012 because of the recession. Anywhere from 200-400 people participated in the tour last year, Harter said, getting ideas of new trends with energy efficiency being a high point of interest. “It creates exposure,” Roberts said.

Sheriff seeking info about island bank robbery By JUSTIN BURNETT Whidbey News Group

Wells Fargo in Clinton was robbed Monday. The Island County Sheriff’s Office confirmed the bank was hit by a lone gunman. The suspect made off with an undisclosed amount of cash and, in an unusual move, stole a bank employee’s vehicle as a getaway car. No one was hurt. According to Detective Ed Wallace, spokesman for the sheriff’s office, the heist took place at about 11:50 a.m. at the branch on Highway 525. The suspect entered the bank wearing a black mask, gloves and a camouflaged jacket over a black hooded sweatshirt. Brandishing a black semi-automatic handgun, the robber approached a teller and demanded cash and the keys to an employee’s vehicle. “Basically he said, ‘I don’t want anyone to get hurt; give me the money,’ ” Wallace said. The suspect left in a Silver 2000 Toyota 4 Runner Sport. The vehicle was recovered by police from a driveway at a private home on Cultus Bay Road a few hours later. Wallace said Tuesday morning that the SUV had been processed by law enforcement specialists who sought to recover DNA evidence. No obvious leads were discovered, but detectives are considering a connection to the robbery of the Valero gas station in Bayview this past December. That robber was also dressed in camouflage attire, a black mask and gloves. Wallace said camouflage patterns are distinct, and video sur veillance footage will allow officers

to determine if it was the same jacket. Wallace did add, however, that the physical descriptions of the two robbers differ. “The build doesn’t seem quite right,” he said. The suspect in Monday’s robbery is described as a male, 6 feet to 6 feet 2 inches tall, while last year’s gunman was believed to be 5 feet, 10 inches to 6 feet tall with a thin build. Stephanie Cook, owner of Cozy’s Roadhouse in Clinton, said word of the robbery got out quickly and the sentiment among the community is that enough is enough. “The word is, ‘This is getting old,’ ” she said. “Clinton has become quite the bank robbery place. And no one has ever been caught.” Monday’s heist is the fourth in the past few years, two of which occurred in Clinton. This was the second time Wells Fargo was hit. Cook added that rumors allege some of the robberies were preceded by a 911 ruse to occupy police. Wallace confirmed just such a trick was used Monday. Dispatchers received a frantic call that a person had been shot in Freeland. “We were up there investigating and few minutes later the bank robbery

occurred,” Wallace said. He confirmed the same tactic was used prior to one of the other bank robberies, which may be further evidence that it’s one robber. It’s frustrating for police, as they can’t ignore a 911 call and lack the manpower to keep deputies in reserve, Wallace said. While the evidence appears to be mounting for a serial bank robber, Island County Sheriff Mark Brown said that still hasn’t been established. He declined to speculate whether one or any of the cases are linked. He did say, however, that the string of robberies are a top priority, and that three of the department’s four detectives and an evidence technician are working to solve the crimes. “We have a whole team investigating,” Brown said. “Hopefully we can solve this,” he added. Cook agreed, saying, “It would be nice if they caught at least one person.” According to a Monday news release, South Whidbey schools in the area were briefly placed on lock-down following the robbery as a precautionary measure.

IN OUR OPINION

Farmer free-for-all isn’t the answer; guidance is needed A farmer digs an irrigation ditch for a nearby field. It begins as nothing more than a dirt trench, but it doesn’t take long for grass to line its banks. Over time that greenery is joined by shrubs, blackberry bushes and, eventually trees. At some point, fish or even beaver may call it home. Is it still just a farmer’s ditch, or has it become something else, a precious waterway in need of protection? The answer, it seems, is often a matter of an individual’s perspective. Some are quick to lay woes of the environment on “yahooing” farmers and deaf policy makers, while others will shake their heads or raise their fists at “overboard” regulations and the continued lobbying and litigation threats of green warriors. For others, however, the answer is not so clear. Thankfully, Island County planning leaders are included in this latter group. A farmer’s ability to maintain ditches is one of the questions county planners are grappling with in attempting to draft the fish and wildlife update, a component of the county’s critical area’s rules. These regulations are required under the state Growth Management Act of 1990 — landmark legislation that changed the course of development in Washington. The intent behind the act was indeed to better the lives of everyone in the state, and planners have a responsibility to pen rules that don’t cater to any single group. The Planning Department should be applauded for its middle-of-the-road approach and not falling prey to the agenda of both farmers and environmental activists alike. County Planning Director Dave Wechner is correct when he says that the end product should be a compromise, and that, if done correctly, no one will get everything they want. Farming is an ancient and noble avocation. It’s hard work, the pay is poor and is often the focus of controversy in growth sensitive communities. The best available science — a mainstay behind GMA required rule updates — is, and should be, the guide. As a society, we must be able to adapt and be willing to change practices that are identified as harmful to the environment. Increased economic hardship is not a sufficient justification for unchecked ecological destruction. Yet, simply walking across grass can be environmentally damaging. The green utopia desired by some is an unlikely future in a world filled with people, which makes moderation and compromise crucial. Giving farmers the go ahead to do whatever they wish is as unreasonable as requiring them to float over their fields on magical wings of environmental righteousness.

LETTERS TO THE EDITOR

Initiatives

One makes sense, the other is frightening

Editor, We are fast approaching another election cycle, and I fear that many voters are misinformed regarding two critically important initiatives. Initiatives 591 and 594 each deal with firearm laws in our fine state, but they come from distinctly different poles. I-591 is a common-sense initiative that basically keeps the state’s firearms laws in line with the federal requirements. This makes perfect sense, is a complement to the Second Amendment of the United States and Washington state constitutions, and is as it should be. I-594, however, is a very convoluted legislation proposal that should be declined. On the surface, proponents of I-594 make it sound as if it involves only background checks to obtain firearms. To the untrained public, that may make sense. But the untrained public doesn’t realize that a federal system of background checks is already required and in use. In fact, the volume of background

checks is used as a measuring stick to estimate the number of gun sales in the country. This initiative also removes the capability of a person to take a friend or relative to a range to learn or practice firearm usage. The initiative would require a firearm transfer form simply to hand your firearm to another person. If passed, you can say goodbye to any firearm training, whether it be a father with his daughter or an organized class for women or youth. These individuals would not even be allowed to handle a firearm other than a personal one in the classroom, let alone on the range. But wait, this initiative goes even further. It opens the door to registry of all firearms, which has led to large scale confiscation in the past. Am I saying the sky is falling? Look no further than Great Britain, Australia or even as close as Chicago to see exactly what I am referring to. Their crime rates have escalated primarily due to an unarmed citizenry. The thugs didn’t turn in their firearms. Hmmmm. There are scare tactics from the proponents citing back-alley gun sales out of the trunks of cars. This legislation will not stop those sales, folks,

when they involve criminals intent on brandishing a firearm. The initiative would only affect the already law–abiding citizens, making it more difficult for them to obtain a firearm for recreation, collecting or personal defense, then use that firearm in any of those capacities. One last thing. The initial backers of I-594 are from out of state. By their own admittance, they are using Washington as a test bed. They have already failed to a large extent in a couple of other states. Let’s not be their lab rats on this matter. So the educated approach would be to vote yes on I-591 and no on I-594. But don’t take my word for it. Do some research of your own. I think you will be shocked by what you uncover. Gary Raster Oak Harbor

MORE LETTERS TO THE EDITOR CONTINUED FROM A6

Constitution stands as a testament to the tenacity of Americans throughout history to maintain their liberties and freedom and to ensure those inalienable rights to every American. The United States of America functions as a republic under the Constitution. The Constitution is the oldest document still in active use that outlines the self-government of a people. This landmark idea that men had the inalienable right as individuals to be free and live their lives under their own governance was the impetus of the American Revolution. I urge everyone to remember that lost rights may never be regained. Everyday, We the People are in danger of losing our Constitutional rights. Be informed, be involved and, most importantly, vote. Pamela McCunn, Regent Gov. Isaac Stevens Chapter Oak Harbor Daughters of the American Revolution

Obama

Current president is a ‘dismal failure’ Editor, I am a visitor to Oak Harbor and will be here only long enough for necessary repairs to be made to our home in Napa, Calif., as a result of damages from the recent earthquake. While visiting our daughter, I picked up a copy of the Whidbey NewsTimes at the Navy Lodge at Whidbey Island Naval Air Station and read with interest letters to the editor. I regret that I did not get to read Mr. Johnston’s letter, but I did read Mr. Stilwell’s letter and wish to commend him for his remarks. Most of my comments are in response to Mr. Coleman’s letter. It is beyond my comprehension how anyone can refer to support and opposition to President Barack Obama as “tired and cliché” and “taking away space from more important local issues,” and I refer to Mr. Coleman’s letter of Aug. 27. I will not enumerate the mistakes, the arrogant obtuseness, lack of leadership, failure of timely action, incompetence, lack of experience and indecision of Obama — we all know by now or should know what they are. These are facts and not simply my opinion. Mr. Coleman, if we do not reverse the deleterious effects of our current president on the nation at large, then the “local issues” you seem to be so interested in will ultimately be inconsequential. I have seen many presidents come and serve their country to the best of their ability. I am a veteran of World War II, Korea and Vietnam, and I am 89 years of age and must state that our current president is a dismal failure. Joe Rodgers Napa, Calif.

Politics

Traffic

Survival doesn’t lie in needs of parties

There’s a right way to use the right lane

Editor, This is in response to Fred Stilwell’s counterpoint to my Aug. 13 letter to the editor. First, my apologies to Fred for the inadvertent oversight of misspelling his name in that letter. That said, it was with a mixture of mirth and sadness that I read what can only be described as another tired, cliché diatribe by those who continue to grasp at straws, searching in vain for something — anything — of any substance with which they can drag someone’s image, not just the president’s, through the mud simply because their target doesn’t ascribe to their ideology. Though laughable in its predictability, it was depressing in its commonality. While the majority of Stilwell’s claims are unsurprisingly banal, the animosity exhibited in his letter is as concerning as it is reprehensible. Stilwell’s euphemism regarding “drinking the Kool-Aid”— an objectification of the tragedy at Jonestown — served as a perfect example of an increasing callous disregard for one’s fellow human. Mr. Stilwell, your prior service to this country — like that of anyone else — does not immunize you from being held accountable for unacceptable behavior. To allow it to do so would be to unfairly cheapen the accomplishments of others who also served but who maintained their decorum and bearing. I stand firmly by what I said in my last letter. As President Abraham Lincoln said, “A house divided against itself cannot stand.” No one who truly loves the country would contribute to its downfall. It is inescapable that behavior highly similar to that which Mr. Stilwell has displayed is swiftly dividing this nation into two separate, polarized nations, thereby relegating the idea of a united nation to a memory of the distant past. The result of this is that we are rapidly approaching the point at which each of us becomes less interested in our country as a whole and more interested in our tiny sliver thereof, discounting those who differ from our beliefs as being unworthy of further attention or consideration. The key to the survival of this nation does not lie, nor has it ever, in the ideology of a particular political party. It lies in adherence to the understanding and acceptance of the need for and safeguarding of overarching themes that unite a diverse population while allowing for independent beliefs and desires. It is therefore imperative that we recenter our focus on that which is best for our country rather than what is best for ourselves. Richard Johnston Douglas, Ariz.

Editor, Along with the state Department of Transportation project to improve traffic flow in Oak Harbor, local drivers can also help alleviate congestion with an easy adjustment in their driving habits. When heading west on State Highway 20, passing Wendy’s restaurant, drivers approach the light at the intersection of Southwest Erie Street and Southwest Bayshore Drive, at the corner of Albertson’s shopping center, with the thought of courteously lining up in the left lane and leaving the right lane available to drivers making a right turn at the light. During high peak traffic times, this results in a long backup of vehicles in the left lane while the right lane is free flowing. The intent of that right lane is not as a turn-only lane, and drivers who use it properly as a through lane often get a scowl from a left-lane driver. The way to alleviate frustration and to have traffic flow smoothly is to fill in left and right lanes equally before the traffic light and then courteously and carefully merge, one vehicle from left lane, one vehicle from right lane, after the light, as indicated by the road signs. This is how those lanes are intended to be used. This adherence to road rules will keep smiles on everyone’s face and provide a good feeling of cooperation. Kathleen Sulak Oak Harbor

Community

Navy made Coupeville the town it is today

Editor, I think the anti-Outlying Field Coupeville group needs to be told about Coupeville before any of them were born or even heard of Coupeville. After they read this, they should be ashamed of themselves for what they are trying to do. I have lived here many years and know what the Navy has done for Coupeville and the whole island. They were not only patrolling the island, protecting us from invasion by Japan during that terrible war, they were providing much-needed jobs for a large percentage of Coupeville when Coupeville was a struggling town. Those people kept their jobs for many years and retired with pensions. The Navy helped make Coupeville the town it is today — a prosperous community and a popular tourist attraction. I can’t count how many times the Navy has rescued people in distress

on the island. Now this group is acting like a bunch of spoiled kids because everything in their lives isn’t perfect. There is a loud noise happening that interrupts their conversations for a few hours out of their year. Wow. Isn’t that too bad? Jean Sherman Coupeville

OLF

Do you think freedom doesn’t have a cost? Editor, This is in response to Maryon Attwood’s June 14 letter for the halt of Field Carrier Landing Practice at Outlying Field. I admire your new strategy for attacking the Navy’s requirement for carrier landing practice at Coupeville. Faulting the Navy for the loss of local economy is very good, however faulted. The loss of revenue is nowhere near what we the taxpayers pay for a new EA-18G. My point? Lose one EA-18G at sea due to lack of training in carrier landing practice and you’re out hundreds of millions of dollars, not to mention a highly trained Naval Aviator life — priceless. Also keep in mind it is those patriots at sea flying that jet keeping the bad guys at bay that enable you to have your freedom for arts and crafts, farming, etc. Or do think freedom is free? David Christopherson Coupeville

Freedom

Most precious thing on this earth is peace Editor, “Perspective” (Tradition-Honor-Sacrifice) Two iron eagles stand proudly side by side; at ease; symbols of American pride. Silent tribute to their brave pilots and crews; fighting a war we can’t afford to lose. Two gray birds of prey Flown by the finest Blue and Gold. On land and at sea their missions never get old. “Freedom is not free” is not just a cliche. It is real blood — real tears — real lives in harm’s way every day! Forget diamonds, platinum and gold. The most precious and rare element on earth is peace! The “last full measure of devotion” is priceless! Larry G. Brown Oak Harbor

Merickel

Mary Louise Reilly Merickel

Mary Louise Reilly Merickel died with dignity and grace Sept. 4, 2014. She left the world a better place and gifted so many people with her delightful, compassionate and charming personality. She was a great mother and good friend to many. Her sense of humor, her ease at accepting what life threw at her and her propensity to tell little white lies in hopes of making life easier for others was heartening. She will be missed. She was born Sept. 15, 1920, in Birmingham, Ala., to Rose Nangle and William Reilly. Her father died when she was only 2, leaving behind her two older brothers, William and John, as well. The family then moved back to St. Cloud, Minn., to be close to her mother’s family. The nuns at the College of St. Benedict’s, particularly her aunt, Sister Vivia, were instrumental in helping raise the three children as her mother worked various jobs to support her family. In spite of money being very tight, Mary Louise remembered a joyous childhood with many opportunities for fun and learning. After attending Cathedral High School, she enrolled at the College of St. Benedict’s, where she studied English. Two years later, she took a hiatus in order to help her mother financially. Fortuitously, one of her friends at school, Sally Merickel, found her a job at the Merickel Lumber Mills in Wadena, where Mary Louise met her future husband, Tom Merickel. They were married Aug. 23, 1942, in San Diego, where he was serving in the Navy. After leaving the military, Tom and Mary Lou moved to Wadena, where they raised 13 children. They led a busy but exciting life, never turning down adven-

ture. They spent time living at Rush Lake during the summer months, converted a school bus into a camper of sorts, loaded the kids in for monthly trips throughout the USA and bought a home in Mexico. After Tom’s death in 1977, Mary Lou moved again, with her three youngest still in school, to St. Cloud and then a few years later to San Diego. Her final months were spent at Home Place, a special care center in Oak Harbor. She was first and foremost a mother of 13 children but also a wife, daughter, sister, aunt, friend, grandmother, great-grandmother and an inspiration to everyone that had the privilege of knowing her. Mary Lou was a chameleon of sorts in that she could be whomever you needed her to be: confidant, fan, ghost-writer, bridge partner, advocate or driver. The Catholic Church and education were both very important to her. She was an active volunteer in many of her children’s classes; she had vocabulary words posted around the house, and she even found time to go back to St. Ben’s to complete her degree and graduate in 1974. She made certain that all of her 13 children had at least a bachelor’s degree. Some of her fun memories include her appearance on “Family Feud” with four of her children. She was one of Richard Dawson’s favorites. She enjoyed politics, historical events as they happened and Irish Cream. She kept her charm and sense of humor close by until the very end. Friends and family are encouraged to imbibe in an Irish toast, give a friend a flower or do a random act of kindness in her memory. She is survived by her 13 children and their spouses in addition to 24 grandchildren and 10 great-grandchildren. Listed below are her children in order of date of birth and their spouses: Michael Reilly Merickel and spouse Nancy Foster (Oak Harbor), Deborah Merickel (Oak Harbor), Kathy Merickel Moreno and spouse David (Berkeley, Calif.), Sally Merickel Maxwell and spouse Don (San Diego), Teri Merickel (San Diego), Melissa Merickel and spouse Jim Somers (Oak Harbor), Peggy Merickel and spouse Scott McLaughlin (Fargo, N.D.), Polly Merickel and spouse Jim Poe (San Diego), Tommy Merickel and spouse Laura (Shoreview, Minn.), Harry Merickel and spouse Kris (Battle Lake, Minn.), MaryJo Merickel and spouse David Gross (Bloomington, Minn.), Maggie Merickel and spouse Julie Day (San Diego), and Casey Merickel (Miami Beach, Fla.)

Bucket brigade

Coupeville opens 2014 season with win over rival Falcons

Bayne, who scored the contest’s first touchdown on a 59-yard run seconds into the game, finished with 218 yards on 17 carries and two TDs. He added five catches for 26 yards and 42 return yards on two kickoffs. Walstad connected on 20 of 29 throws for 252 yards and three scores. Ryan Griggs hauled in six of the passes for 72 yards and a touchdown, Wiley Hesselgrave snared four passes for 77 yards and two touchdowns, and C.J. Smith had five grabs for 58 yards. Jacob Martin backed Bayne on the ground with 55 yards on 12 carries; Hesselgrave netted 14 yards on six carries. In all, the Wolves rushed for 289 yards. After Bayne’s early sprint gave Coupeville the lead, the Falcons came right back to knot the score on a pass play. The Wolves regained the lead midway through the second quarter when Walstad dropped a pass over the defense to Griggs, who made a nice catch just inside the boundary for a touchdown. The point-after kick, however, missed the mark. The momentum quickly returned to South Whidbey when the Falcons scored a pair of touchdowns just seconds apart and led 21-13 at the break. Coupeville responded

and a dramatic finish. After the score, South Whidbey drove into Coupeville territory. On fourth down, the Wolves defended a pass in the end zone and took over. Faced with a fourth-andone at its own 30 with about 30 seconds left, Maggio gambled and went for it. “The kids were gassed,” Maggio said. “We did not want to go to overtime. We needed to win it right there.” A push up front from the interior line (Aaron Wright, Dominic Dausey, Matt Shank, Isaac Vargas and Oscar Liquidano) enabled Walstad to sneak for the first down and seal the win. Coupeville suited only 24 players for the game, and about 16 played extensively on offense and defense, Maggio said. Most of the others contributed on special teams, including freshman Cameron Tooney-Stout (“All 5 feet, 80 pounds of him,” Maggio said.), who had a 10-yard kickoff return. Among the missing were starters Carson Risner (center) and Lathom Kelley (fullback). Risner’s return from a knee injury is unknown, Maggio said, but Kelley will probably be back next Friday after suffering a mild concussion in the jamboree.

By JIM WALLER Sports editor

It’s basically a one-item bucket list. And the Coupeville High School football team was able to cross off that singular goal with a 35-28 win over South Whidbey Friday, Sept. 5, at Mickey Clark Field. The winner of the annual island rivalry gets to claim “The Bucket” for the school year, and Coupeville officials will now dust off a spot in the CHS trophy case for the prize, which has been resting in Langley for the past 12 months. The game, played in front of a crowd that packed the stands and ringed the field, was a see-saw affair, and when the final horn sounded, it was tilted in the Wolves’ favor. Josh Bayne split the South Whidbey defense for a 35-yard scoring romp late in the fourth quarter to break a 28-28 tie. From there, the defense held and the offense converted on a fourth-andone to run out the clock. The past two year’s under coach Tony Maggio’s guidance, the Wolves have been a run-heavy team. The attack was more balanced Friday as Bayne led the ground game and first-year quarterback Joel Walstad peppered the Falcons through the air.

Coupeville’s Josh Bayne hauls in a kickoff for the Wolves. in the third quarter with a six-yard scoring pass from Walstad to Hesselgrave. Walstad ran a bootleg for the two-point conversion and the score was tied at 21. South Whidbey scored again, and Walstad and

Hesselgrave repeated their act as well, this time from 13 yards out. Walstad kicked the PAT to even the game at 28 late in the third quarter. Coupeville forced South Whidbey to punt, setting up Bayne’s game-winning run

Hesselgrave also missed part of the game with a partially separated shoulder, but “toughed it out,” Maggio said. Maggio also had high praise for his coordinators. Orsen Christensen, the offensive coordinator, “had his finger on the pulse of the game and called a great game.” Defensive coordinator Brett Smedley “dialed up the right calls” during critical times, Maggio said. Bayne and Hesselgrave led Smedley’s unit with seven tackles each. Wright finished with six, and Martin and Mitchell Losey had four each. Not all was perfect for the Wolves. They had four turnovers, several in the red zone, but a win over South Whidbey is always nice, Maggio said. “This rivals the win we had at South Whidbey two years ago,” he said. In that game, Coupeville pulled off an upset to clinch a playoff berth. Coupeville, which begins the season with four consecutive home games, hosts Sequim in another nonleague matchup at 5:30 p.m. Friday, Sept. 12. Sequim, which didn’t win a game last fall, drubbed Chimacum 47-21 Friday.

Preventing brain injuries is at the top of our list.” “We were able to allocate funds normally used to recondition and replace helmets, which is a huge expense for our league, toward purchasing new shoulder pads and other safety equipment,” said Eric Marshall, president of the Oak Harbor Youth Football League.

Nothing special about Oak Harbor football opener Mistakes haunt Wildcats in loss By JIM WALLER Sports editor

The special teams for Oak Harbor High School were anything but special in the Wildcats’ 30-28 loss to Monroe in the season opener Friday, Sept. 5, at Wildcat Memorial Stadium. Oak Harbor had two punts and an extra point partially blocked, booted a one-yard punt on an unblocked kick, gave up a 53-yard punt return and failed to cover a pooch kick on a kick off. In addition, the Wildcats lost four fumbles, botched three quarterback-center exchanges, failed to convert on a pair of two-point extrapoint tries, gave up five sacks and collected three personal foul penalties in a four-play stretch. All that and Oak Harbor still lost by only two points ---- thanks to out-gaining the Bearcats 444 yards to 174. Oak Harbor had a chance to win it at the end, driving to the Monroe 29 before a mishandled snap and two sacks ended the game. Monroe started drives at the Oak Harbor 28-, 36-, 25-, 40-, 18- and 37-yard lines because of Wildcat blunders. Early it was all Oak Harbor as Monroe netted no first downs and a negative three yards of offense in its first

three possessions. On the Wildcats’ first possession, they drove 55 yards to the Bearcat 1-yard line, then a penalty, incomplete pass and three-yard loss led to a field goal as Mark Johnston knuckled one through from 26 yards out. On Oak Harbor’s next possession, quarterback Clay Doughty got things going with a shovel pass to Quinn Karney that went for 31 yards. Two plays later, Dejon Devroe raced in from the 26 for the score. Monroe got a hand on Johnston’s PAT kick, and Oak Harbor led 9-0. Monroe had another threeand-out, but Oak Harbor fumbled at its own 28 and the Bearcats pushed it in from there. Early in the second quarter, Monroe partially blocked a Zach Jones punt and downed the ball at the Oak Harbor 25. Two plays later, it led 14-9. Again Monroe got a piece of a Jones punt, taking over at the Wildcat 42. Tanner Ohlsen kicked a 36-yard field goal to make it 17-9. Late in the quarter, Devroe bolted 80 years for a touchdown. The PAT pass failed, and it was 17-15. On its second possession of the second half, Oak Harbor drove to the Bearcat 25, but three major penalties pushed Oak Harbor back to its own 34. Jones got off a nice punt, but Monroe ran it back 53 yards to the 18. On

Oak Harbor fumbled away its next possession, but Ohlsen was just short on a 44-yard field-goal attempt on the second play of the fourth quarter. The Wildcats put together a four-minute drive that covered 80 yards to get within

two, 23-21. Jones ran three times in the drive for 46 yards and caught an 11-yard pass. Princeton Lollar scored from the 8 but was stopped on the point-after run. The Wildcats forced a Monroe punt but fumbled the ball right back with 5:38 left in the game. The Bearcats switched from its spread formation to a two-tight end, fullhouse backfield and marched 60 yards to take a 30-21 lead with 3:32 remaining.

Oak Harbor, beginning at its own 31, saw a golden chance slip away on its first play when Devroe got behind the Monroe secondary only to have Doughy’s bomb just slip off his fingertips. The Wildcats kept battling, overcame a fourthdown play and scored on a 37-yard pass from Doughty to Dyllan Harris with 1:37 left. Johnston kicked the PAT, making it 30-28. After a failed onside kick,

the Wildcat defense did its part, stopping Monroe on three straight plays and stopping the clock with three timeouts. Oak Harbor began at its own 22 with 1:07 left. A 37-yard pass to Harris and 12-yard Devroe run put the ball at the Bearcat 29, but the drive fizzled from there with a botched snap, spike and two sacks. Devroe finished with 174 yards on 15 carries, Jones had 52 yards on seven tries and Karney added 44 on 12 carries. Doughty hit nine of 13 passes for 148 yards. Harris caught five of the passes for 95 yards. Jacob Jerome ran for 89 yards on 18 carries for Monroe; Andrew Zimmerman hit six of 20 passes for 95 yards. Oak Harbor coach Jay Turner was pleased his club still “had a chance to win it at the end,” but added, “you can’t play like that and expect to win.” “Fortunately, it was a nonleague game and we can learn from it,” he said. Oak Harbor now heads to Ferndale for a non-league game at 7 p.m. Friday, Sept. 12. Ferndale lost 34-14 to Kamiakan Saturday. (The statistics in this story are unofficial.)

Artists gather for Langley Arts Alive By KATE DANIEL South Whidbey Record

F

or Langley resident Kim Tinuviel, colors have always struck a special chord. The musician, photographer, multi-media artist and painter recalls a childhood filled with symphonic hues and multicolored melodies, something she continued to experience as a young adult attending Juilliard and which she would later find to be called synesthesia. Tinuviel described the condition as one in which the senses are both cooperative and somewhat blurred — she sees sound and hears color. “It has totally guided me as an artist,” Tinuviel said. “I can’t separate it from being an artist … one can be predominant but they are always holding hands.” Tinuviel has combined encaustic painting, a technique that uses molten beeswax, with her own original photographs to create multi-layered pieces ripe with texture and depth. She will be holding demonstrations of her photo encaustic painting process during Langley’s first Arts Alive, which kicks off this weekend. The event will be held in locations

throughout downtown Langley from 11 a.m. to 3 p.m. Saturday, Sept. 13. Arts Alive will provide more than 50 artists of numerous mediums with the opportunity to showcase their work while educating the public about their respective mediums. They include sculpting, painting, glass work, animation, print making and children’s art. “My goal is to create artwork where you’re not sure where the photograph ends and the painting begins and vise versa,” Tinuviel said. She recently produced two photo encaustic paintings using close-up photographs of Central Asian rugs in Langley’s Music for the Eyes. When layered atop with rivulets of beeswax, the patterns’ dimensions were amplified, making them as inviting to touch as to view. She explained that her goal is to invite viewers to interpret her work in their own way. What is important, Tinuviel said, is what the viewer sees or feels as opposed to the originally photographed subject. Gesturing to a painting hung above her studio window, she recalled one instance in which a viewer interpreted the line of trees reflected in a body of water as a toothbrush. “That doesn’t insult me at all,” she said with a laugh. “I just love that people see other

things because it is a deeper understanding. There is not just one way to see things, just as there is not one way to hear things.” Some artists, such as Melissa Koch of Clinton and Lauren Atkinson of Greenbank, will invite audience participation during Arts Alive. Atkinson and Koch will be conveying a message regarding the preservation of the monarch butterfly population. They will invite children to create muslin butterflies that will be sewn together to create one. Tom Lindsay, who creates water and bubble sculptures, will be demonstrating his “evanescent” art form to attendees twice during Arts Alive: at sunrise Saturday morning and during the 11 a.m. to 3 p.m. time frame. Lindsay, who designs interactive water exhibits for children’s museums, developed a mobile system using tubes and whips to constantly stream bubbles that can last for minutes, as opposed to bubbles created using a “dip system” which last mere seconds. Lindsay explained that the idea was first conceived by another bubble artist, Keith Johnson, but that the mechanism was first produced by Lindsay using Johnson’s concept.

“I like to create things that are really unusual and different and that people haven’t seen before that are fun and interesting,” Lindsay said. “I think as adults we just don’t play enough … I try to do things that allow people to be a kid.” Standing on the dock of the Langley Marina at sunrise last week, Lindsay showed a small group of bystanders his craft. The translucent orbs, varying in size from individual bubbles a foot or so in diameter to bubble tubes spanning multiple feet, slipped from the lines of Lindsay’s whips into the sea as the sun shone through the spheres with a rosy glean. “I think of all the things I’ve made that people have enjoyed, these (bubbles) are the most captivating,” he said. “It’s like they’re just almost irresistible.” As a part of his Arts Alive demonstration, Lindsay said he will likely invite attendees to create their own bubble art. Although Lindsay’s bubble sculpture mechanism is one of a kind, he said anyone could do it with the right tools and conditions. “I’m just putting the juice here; it just gets born like a child,” Lindsay said. n For information about the event, visit www.visitlangley.com/arts_alive

Oak Harbor Fire Chief Ray Merrill investigates the scene of a Central Whidbey house fire that killed a resident early Saturday morning. The body of former dentist Matthew Nieder was discovered among the fire remains.

FATAL FIRE CONTINUED FROM A1 of the Island County Sheriff’s Office. Lt. Jen Porter with Central Whidbey Island Fire and Rescue said firefighters had trouble finding the house fire at the somewhat isolated site on North Bluff Road. The blaze was first reported by residents on Camano Island just after 1 a.m.. Firefighters were dispatched to the area of Race Road and Arbor Drive. One fire truck looking for the fire on North Bluff Road initially drove past the home and didn’t see it because of the slope and trees, Porter said. A neighbor finally noticed the fire and called in the address to 911. Porter said the two-story house with a daylight basement was “heavily involved” on first floor when firefighters arrived. The roof had collapsed, so firefighters initiated a “defensive fire attack,” Porter said; that means firefighters weren’t able to

go inside to fight the fire, but extinguished it from the inside. The fire department called for mutual aid assistance from North Whidbey Fire and Rescue, South Whidbey Fire and Oak Harbor Fire. “It was definitely all hands on board,” Porter said. Porter said it took most of the night to extinguish the fire and put out the hot spots. Nieder’s dog was found safe outside of the home. Merrill said firefighters soon realized that Nieder, the sole resident of the home, was missing. Starting at about 8 a.m., the sheriff’s office conducted a search of the perimeter and beach, but didn’t find anyone. Nieder’s body was located in the home’s shell that afternoon. He died as a result of the house fire, according to Coroner Robert Bishop. Merrill said the 2,500-square-foot home was completely destroyed. Merrill said it appears that the fire started in the daylight basement, which had a wood stove and a lot of storage.

Big brothers, sisters raffling ultimate tailgate vehicle By MICHELLE BEAHM Staff reporter

Big Brothers Big Sisters of Oak Harbor is unveiling the ultimate Seahawks tailgating vehicle — the Fanbulance. And one lucky raffle winner will get to drive home the ultimate tailgate party machine. After purchasing an old ambulance, the organization transformed the vehicle into a Seahawks-themed machine designed with the 12th Man in mind. Now Hawks’ blue and green inside and out, the vehicle will include a barbecue, picnic awning, lawn chairs, a 32-inch TV and a DVD player, with a DVD of Superbowl XLVIII, said Penny Perka, executive director of Big Brothers Big Sisters of Oak Harbor. The roof of the vehicle will be made to look like Century Link Field, and the windows on the back doors will have “137.6 DB,” the stadium-noise record that was set at the Seahawks home game against the New Orleans Saints on Dec. 2, 2013. Included are bobbleheads of Richard

Sherman, Russell Wilson and Marshawn Lynch. “It’s basically a custom tailgate rig,” said Perka. Proceeds of the raffle will go to Big Brothers Big Sisters mentoring in Island County. Raffle tickets will be sold until the drawing, slated for Sunday, Dec. 7. Tickets are being sold four for $20. Perka said she hopes ticket sales can begin by week’s end. The drawing will be held at Flyers Restaurant and Brewery in Oak Harbor during halftime of the Seahawks-Philadelphia Eagles game. The Fanbulance was board member Ron Wallin’s idea. “This was a creative idea that one of our board members came up with,” she said. “And it’s cool. Very, very cool.” To promote raffle ticket sales, Perka said the Fanbulance will be parked at various events the organization participates in throughout the community. “Whoever wins it, I think they’ll have a lot of fun with it.”

STRUGGLING CONTINUED FROM A1 pletely rob her of her independence. When her husband was gone for weeks on business trips, she still was able to get to her doctor’s office and other important appointments through Island Transit’s paratransit service. That has changed for Guthrie and many other people on Whidbey. The leaders

of the taxpayer-funded transit service recently made significant cuts and modifications to routes after financial problems came to light. “We are in desperate need to paratransit right now,” she said, explaining that at least two other members of her small group are affected by the cuts.

n A special Island Transit board meeting is slated for 9 a.m., Friday, Sept.12 at the transit facility near Coupeville. “For me, I’ve lost the independence that I used to have.” Guthrie’s group, South Whidbey Island Multiple Sclerosis, is hosting a community meeting with Island Transit officials to discuss

The meeting is from 2-4 p.m., Thursday, Sept. 11 at the Bayview Senior Center. Island Transit Director Martha Rose said the agency is in the process of revamping the entire system in order to meet more transportation needs, particularly paratransit service. But the process will take some time. After a plan is developed, it will be vetted in public meetings and then refined, she said. Rose said IT is working with individual paratransit riders affected by the cuts. “We make every effort to get every person we possibly can,” she said.

Nevertheless, some of the county’s most vulnerable are having trouble. “For 50 paratransit riders right now, we are really up a creek,” said South Whidbey resident Kathleen Landel, referring to those who lost transportation due to cuts in routes 5 and 8. Landel’s mother lost her paratransit rides to Adult Day Services at the Bayview Senior Center. Landel said she’s been scrambling to transport her mother to and from the center. Landel has been researching such ideas as starting a community cooperative to fill in the gaps of paratransit. “I do feel that there are paratransit needs that aren’t

being met right now,” she said, “and people are really feeling isolated.” Cheryn Weiser, the executive director of Senior Services of Island County, agrees. She said some people are also having trouble getting to senior center programs because of the cuts; about 16 of the 20 participants in the Adult Day Services use paratransit. Weiser said she expects the agency’s medical transportation program to be inundated with calls for help. In the past, the volunteers drivers mainly helped seniors and disabled people with getting to medical appointments off the island to places like Seattle and Bellingham. Island Transit’s paratransit handled the transportation needs to appointments on the island, she said. That changed with Island Transit’s cuts to service and Weiser worries that Senior Services won’t be able to keep up with the demand. Weiser said the medical transportation program needs more volunteer drivers, particularly on North Whidbey. The program is headquartered at the Cam Bey Apartments in Coupeville and managed by director Pat Weekley, who can be reached at 360-678-4886 or by emailing patweekley@islandseniorservices.org. Of course, many people who rely on traditional bus services are also affected. Jackie Henderson, director of Island County Human Services, said many developmentally disabled people in the community rely on Island Transit to get to work. Cuts in routes and particularly the loss of Saturday service has been devastating to some folks. “A lot of people have jobs and totally rely on bus service,” she said.

NOTICE Washington State law requires wood sellers to provide an invoice (receipt) that shows the s e l l e r ’s a n d b u y e r ’s name and address and the date delivered. The invoice should also state the price, the quantity delivered and the quantity upon which the price is based. There should be a statement on the type and quality of the wood. When you buy firewood write the seller’s phone number and the license plate number of the delivery vehicle. The legal measure for firewood in Washington is the cord or a fraction of a cord. Estimate a c o r d by v i s u a l i z i n g a four-foot by eight-foot space filled with wood to a height of four feet. Most long bed pickup trucks have beds that are close to the four-foot by 8-foot dimension.
