Navy faces resistance to Peninsula training plans By DEBRA VAUGHN Staff reporter

Navy officials say a plan to introduce electromagnetic transmitters to its electronic-warfare training on the Olympic Peninsula is no threat to people, animals or the environment. In fact, they say, the transmitters are no more powerful than the output of a television news van.

But that isn’t deterring so many people from commenting on the plan that the U.S. Forest Service is delaying its decision on whether to grant the Navy a special-use permit in order to sort through the comments. MORE THAN 3,300 people sent comments to the Forest Service, so many that the agency hired a contractor to analyze them, said Glen Sachet, agency spokesman. Most of

the commenters are not in favor of the plan because of concerns about jet noise or electromagnetic radiation. A decision isn’t expected until next year. “We take public comment very seriously,” Sachet said. “Just as we take the proposed application seriously. “We are deliberate and careful about how we analyze the proposal.”

THE DEPARTMENT of Natural Resources doesn’t want anything to do with the project. The Navy originally planned to use DNR roads, but hasn’t made a formal request. State Commissioner of Public Lands Peter Goldmark sent Navy officials a letter in February that said, “we would not be interSEE OLYMPIC PENINSULA, A12

Island County tax burden is 10th lowest in Washington By JESSIE STENSLAND Staff reporter

Island County has the 10th lowest tax burden in the state and a comparatively low tax burden in the nation, according to a new study by SmartAsset. The personal finance technology company analyzed how much an average person would pay in income, sales, property and fuel taxes in all 3,007 counties in the nation. The total was translated into a “tax burden index,” which can be used to compare counties. Of the counties with the least total taxes in the state, Island County ranks as 10th lowest among the state’s 39 counties; the ranking takes into account taxes for both municipalities and unincorporated areas. The county’s tax burden was the 231st lowest in the nation, the study JOHNSON: found. “Ultimately, it That’s good news for Island may be up to the County’s economy and, especially, voters to decide small businesses, according to Island what level of serCounty Economic Development vice they expect Director Ron Nelson. from their county “When it comes to operating your government and small business, property tax bills how much they can get really expensive very fast,” he said, noting that the county’s are willing to pay average property tax collections are for it. especially low. “It can make the difference when it comes to expending or just staying in business.” Nelson said the comparatively low tax burden should give the county an edge over other counties when it comes to business location.

Annual homeless count yields specifics, surprises By JANIS REID Staff reporter

Nearly half of Island County’s homeless are working. This fact is one of several revelations discussed in recent weeks with Island County commissioners as the result of the 2015 point-in-time count performed in January. “This year we feel we have come closer to what we consider a close coverage count,” said Joanne Pelant, Island County’s housing resource coordinator who organized the count.” The county switched its methodology this year and recruited more than 100 volunteers who surveyed people who identified themselves as homeless for specific information. “We can feel really confident about our numbers this year because of this strategy,” Pelant said. Volunteers counted 147 adult homeless designated as “unsheltered” and 38 designated as sheltered. The unsheltered definition includes people living in tents, vehicles, parks, woods and in abandoned or substandard structures. Individuals were only counted as “sheltered” if they were living in emergency shelters or transitional housing associated with a state or county organization. People “doubled up” or living with family and friends, as well as those in hospitals

or incarceration, were not counted as “homeless” but were recorded for the state, Pelant said. Around 13 homeless youth were identified island wide. When the adults are divided by region, 71 of the total homeless were in the Oak Harbor area, 28 were found in the South Whidbey region and 10 were found in the Coupeville area. No homeless were found to survey on Camano Island. Economic drivers are among the top causes of homelessness, Pelant said, something that is common throughout the region. “Other counties’ charts look very similar to ours,” Pelant said. The top reason for homelessness in Island County was job loss, followed by a family crisis or break up, eviction from a residence and other economic reasons. Around 42 percent of respondents said they had fewer than four episodes of homeless in the past three years. The remaining respondents reported they had been homeless for more than a year or had more than four episodes of homelessness in the last three years. Commissioner Helen Price Johnson remarked at a presentation in May how many people were newly homeless. “Almost half the people are new to crisis, so we’re not stopping people

Around 45 percent reported having full- or part-time work, and closer to 50 percent are living in their vehicles, Pelant reported. “So they have income but it’s not enough to afford housing,” Pelant said.

Surveys also revealed that of the 109 unsheltered homeless that were surveyed, 76 percent reported having a physical disability, chronic health condition or mental illness. The count included 65 adult men and 44 adult women, and included 11 families with children, 11 adult households and 43 singles.

Ten individuals reported being veterans and 13 as domestic abuse survivors. Commissioner Jill Johnson, who proposed that the board have future discussions about solutions, said that the numbers will assist local leaders to “develop some strategies on where we’re going to target.”

Senate approves Everett Connector funding Measure requires fare collection system on buses By JANIS REID Staff reporter

The Everett Connector is likely to be restored by a bill that is expected to be signed by Gov. Jay Inslee in the coming weeks. The state House of Representatives and Senate approved $1 million in the 2015-17 biennial budget to reinstate the Everett Connector. The governor has 20 days to act on the bill once his office receives it, likely this week. State Rep. Dave Hayes, R-Camano, succeeded in attaching an amendment for the Everett Connector to the House’s multimodal transportation bill in April. The Everett Connector, which runs between Bellingham and Everett with a stop on Camano Island, was cut late last year. “I’m excited about that,” Hayes said last week about the Senate’s approval of the funding. “It’s a great service that has always proven to be a very popular commuter service. It takes cars off the road,” Hayes said. “It’s a very good thing.” The money would be split between the two transit systems, though the percentage

is yet to be determined. The $1 million allotted for the Everett Connector comes with a concrete requirement — Island Transit must implement a fare system to be eligible for the HAYES funding. Island County is only one of a handful of transit systems statewide that remain free, according to Ken Graska, IT interim executive director. In fact, he added, IT is the largest free system. “It’s super rare,” Graska said. Hayes said he suggested the fare box — which has been an ongoing discussion — to show fellow legislators the good faith of Island Transit, a system that has been embroiled in financial problems in recent years. “I made it clear that Island Transit is under new management and the assistance helps Island Transit prove they are on a positive track to correct issues from the past,” Hayes said. The IT board announced in recent weeks that it will be initiating a fare feasibility study with a June 16 deadline and a $30,000 cap. While the Everett Connector appears to be on the road to recovery, Island County riders must brace for the loss of two off-island routes in the wake of a num-

ber of cuts over the last year. Route 411W, is the only route off Whidbey Island. It runs from Oak Harbor to March Point Road near Anacortes. Route 411C, is one of only a few routes that run of f Camano Island, but is the only route that runs from Camano Island to Mount Vernon. IT posted on its website this week that both Route 411W and Route 411C will be discontinued effective Monday, Aug. 3. All other services from Camano to Stanwood will remain in tact, Graska said. A new Route 4 will continue to service North Whidbey stops from Oak Harbor Station to Deception Pass. Last year’s severe route cuts, which included laying off more than 20 people, were necessary to help stabilize the transit system’s finances according to IT board members. Island County Commissioner Jill Johnson, who serves on the IT board, said last week that maintaining the off-island routes would “keep the organization on the financial edge for too long.” Johnson and Commissioner Rick Hannold each criticized neighboring counties for a lack of cooperation during their regular

Best fade in town By JANIS REID

I

Staff reporter

n the two years he’s had his own barber shop in Oak Harbor, Lampton Lawrence has created quite the following. On a recent weekday Lawrence had five men sitting in his small Midway Boulevard barber shop waiting for one of his legendary haircuts. “He’s the only person I come to get my hair cut,” said Santhes Anderson, an Oak Harbor military spouse. Lawrence specializes in men’s haircuts and is known best for his high top fade, a hair style made popular among black men

in the 1980s that has made a resurgence over the last decade in a more conservative incarnation. If you talk to his customers, there’s no one in town who does it better. “He gives the best fade in town,” said long-time customer and friend Gerry Oliver. “I like coming to Lampton’s. It’s well-priced, efficient. Most people pick up a mirror right after they get their haircut. I don’t do that, so there’s a trust there.” It’s doesn’t hurt that Lawrence is known as being simply “a really nice guy.” When people have schedule conflicts, Lawrence has been known to work with people as needed.

“He always goes the extra mile to help people out,” Oliver said. After attending Evergreen Beauty and Barber in Everett for his license, Lawrence said he picked up a job at a chain hair salon in town, making minimum wage plus tips. With a wife and a child, it wasn’t the greatest situation, Lawrence said. However, Lawrence was able to build up a good clientele for himself. So when his father suggested he talk to the owners of George’s Barber Shop on Midway, who were looking to retire, he was in a position to take over the business. “It was a big step,” Lawrence said. “It took a little bit of a leap of faith.” The change has allowed Lawrence the latitude to better cater to the specific needs of his clientele. Today, Lawrence cuts 90-100 heads of hair a week, mainly men and boys. “I like a challenge,” Lawrence said. “It’s definitely a speciality.”

Oak Harbor switching to energy efficient lights By DEBRA VAUGHN Staff Reporter

Oak Harbor city buildings and street lamps are getting new energy efficient lights, an upgrade that is expected to save taxpayers thousands of dollars annually. Once work is finished, a late night stroll downtown may look a little different too. The city hired Ameresco, an energy consultant company with offices in Renton, to install new light-emitting diodes at City Hall, the fire station, marina, Public Works, park bathrooms, the windmill at Windjammer Park, police department and senior center. This project isn’t just about energy savings. Many city buildings use a type of fluorescent light that shortly will no longer be available, said Rich Tyhuis, a city public works operations manager. Workers also are replacing lights in 253 street lamps. The old high-pressure sodium lights — which produce a yellowish glow — will be replaced with LED fixtures. The LEDs produce a white

light that looks softer from far away but is brighter up close, “When you stand under them, whatever is underneath brightens up,” Tyhuis said. “You’ll see people walking underneath better.” “It’s a different type of light and you’ll notice it.” Estimated cost of the project is $847,705. A Department of Commerce grant and energy saving incentive money from Puget Sound Energy reduced the city’s bill to $513,644. Like many “green” projects, the savings come later. Ameresco conducted an analysis of expected energy savings and estimates the payback period for each facility — how long it takes for the energy savings to make up for the upfront costs. Payback periods range from about three years at the police department to almost 16 years for parks. The city projects annual energy savings will be about $62,000. Work is expected to begin later this month and may take several months to complete.

IN OUR OPINION

Navy needs to bolster regional support for plans to train over peninsula Fear of the unknown isn’t anything new, and it seems there’s a certain degree of misunderstanding surrounding the Navy’s plans to use electromagnetic transmitters on the Olympic Peninsula. The Navy, as a government entity, isn’t great with communicating with the public these days, and it is encountering significant resistance to its plans for transmitters, which would aid in training of EA-18G Growler fliers. So far, more than 3,300 people have said they oppose the Navy’s expanded training plans. The flood of public comments pushed back the Navy’s target date for the $11.5-million expansion of electronic-warfare range activities from September to early 2016. State Commissioner of Public Lands Peter Goldmark has made no bones about the fact he doesn’t like the Navy’s training plans either. “Though we have not received a formal land use or lease application for this project, we feel that we are adequately informed to decide that we would not be interested in participating in this training exercise,” Goldmark said in a letter sent to Rear Adm. Jeffrey Ruth, commander of Navy Region Northwest. The Navy, however, seems to have a pretty well reasoned case showing that its proposed electronic warfare training on the Olympic Peninsula poses no threat to the environment or well-being of humans and wildlife. The training is also nothing new — Growlers already fly over the peninsula. The Navy’s plan doesn’t change where aircraft would fly, their altitude, and there’s no anticipated increase in aircraft noise. There would be a projected 10 percent increase in the number of flights from the average of about 1,250 a year over the past two years. That’s about 125 additional flights. They Navy says it wants to mount emitters on Ford F-550 trucks that would have antennas and an operations cab in the back. The emitters would put out frequencies equivalent to those of WiFi devices and cordless phones. The trucks would be parked in remote areas on U.S. Forest Service logging roads, selected because they aren’t popular with hikers or hunters. The emitters themselves would be at least 14 feet above the forest floor. Risk to animals or humans would only occur if they put themselves in the direct path of the signal, close to the emitter, for an extended period of time. “To cause harm, you’d have to levitate in front of the beam,” said Mike Welding, public affairs officer for NAS Whidbey. Gaining public support for its expanded training plan would be beneficial to the Navy, not only in terms of gaining approval, but also in shoring up regional support of the Navy’s presence. Navy officials have some PR work ahead of them to make their case. Further opening the lines of communication would go a long way toward building that case.

LETTERS TO THE EDITOR Education

Years of failed reform is hurting students Editor, Congratulations to the Oak Harbor High School class of 2015. Unfortunately, of the 40 percent of you continuing on to either a community or technical college in Washington state, three out of five will end up taking pre-college/remedial classes in reading, writing and/or math below the 100 college level. That’s because, as you step foot into one of these open-enrollment schools, you will be tested via a standardized achievement test, such as the COMPASS test used by Skagit Valley College. Unsurprisingly, one of the Oak Harbor Education Association’s selfrighteous reasons for their illegal strike/walkout last month was their Whidbey News-Times-reported allegation that it’s “a bad idea to make standardized test results part of graduation requirements.” However, the 1983 “A Nation at Risk” report recommended for K-12 that “standardized tests of achievement …

should be administered at major transition points from one level of schooling to another and particularly from high school to college or work. The purposes of these tests would be to: certify the student’s credentials; identify the need for remedial intervention; and identify the opportunity for advanced or accelerated work …” No wonder K-12 teachers and their unions oppose standardized testing within K-12. They’d like to keep it secret that, 32 years after “A Nation at Risk,” way too many academically meaningless high school diplomas are still plentiful. As a result of 32 years of failed education reform, K-12 teachers are still held completely unaccountable and only students and their parents are left “holding the bag.” William Burnett Oak Harbor

Island Transit

411 cut indicative of ‘class warfare’ Editor, The Whidbey News-Times published an article last week about Island Transit getting rid of the 411 routes on

Whidbey and Camano islands as a costsaving measure. I contacted Island Transit and they informed me that the No. 4 route would be reinstated to Deception Pass with six runs a day when the 411 goes away. When one looks at this a little closer, one might come to the conclusion that Island Transit is playing a little class warfare. The folks who use the 411 connector route to Skagit County are mostly the poor, disabled or elderly needing to get to low-paying jobs or college classes in Skagit or Whatcom counties, or appointments in Skagit that they couldn’t drive to. Now they are left with a bus route to nowhere that ends at Deception Pass. The six-run replacement won’t even offer enough runs for anyone on the north end trying to figure a work schedule if they are commuting to Oak Harbor for work or school. However, when one examines the Langley loop, route No. 7, one finds that the folks who park their BMWs and Mercedes in their driveways, grab a Latte and take the bus to the ferry to their six-figure jobs in Everett and Seattle. That’s a route that runs 17 times a day. SEE MORE LETTERS, A7

MORE LETTERS TO THE EDITOR CONTINUED FROM A6

I’ll say that again – 17 runs a day! Six runs a day a day to nowhere for the poor and 17 runs a day to connect to the next county for the well-to-do crowd. The primary reason for public transportation is for those people who cannot afford a car or are incapable of utilizing a car due to disability or age. The secondary goal is to reduce the number of vehicles on the road. We’re getting the cart in front of the horse and forgetting the priorities. However, with two Republicans sitting as commissioners and the lone Democrat having the Langley Loop in her district, is it any wonder they are so silent on this matter? Thomas Kosloske Oak Harbor

Charging IT riders a fare is illogical Editor, Island transit is spending $30,000 to decide if riders should be charged fares.

Let me offer some reasons not to implement transit fares: n We all have plenty of “skin in the game” already. Many would not have voted for the 0.9 percent sales tax to fund Island Transit if there was to be a fare also. In fact, we should be allowed to vote again on this sales tax should fares be implemented. Do other transit agencies collect both the 0.9 percent sales tax and fares? Fares increase the cost in the short run, because of the cost to install the collection system, when balancing the broken budget is most difficult. n The more people use public transit, the more environmentally beneficial it is. With fares, ridership will decrease. n Many people who can least afford the extra expense of transit fares will be most affected by a new transit fare. These same people depend on public transit. n The system will operate less efficiently as riders search for exact fare, verify age, and/or display their waiver. n The bureaucracy will increase

OLF Coupeville

Stop complaining and support flier training Editor, I for one — no, for many — am getting tired of reading week in and week out the continual and neverending whining and complaining of Mr. Michael Monson and his minions at Citizens of Ebey’s Reserve. Enough already. I liken their complaints to one who buys property next to a shooting range and then bellyaches about the noise of gunfire. What this whole situation boils down to is that prices were more favorable near the OLF than elsewhere. If those who bought there had done minimal research, as I did when I first moved here, they’d have realized that this area is noisy. Where are the housing prices in King County lower? Guess what, next to SeaTac. So, if you can’t stand the noise of very necessary training at OLF and it’s ruining your children’s hearing,

then admit that you made a wrong and uninformed decision to buy there and move. Our naval aviators need your support instead of your continual rants about the noise. Fred Stilwell Oak Harbor

Nedicine

Lawsuit is a waste of money, resources Editor, Your article “OH, state hit with $25 mil civil lawsuit” is, sadly, laughable. Sad because this suit is such a huge waste of time, money and resources for all involved and laughable because, if Hugh Jonson was being honest about his practice, he would have his sign read “Whidbey Naturals Alternative Nedicine.” Of course Hugh would probably claim the sign company just spelled it wrong.

as we implement fare waivers for those disabled, for students, for seniors, for government workers. n Our county will be the only one in the state that has separate geographical components not linked by public transit — Camano to Whidbey islands. Save the 411W and C routes. The 411W route has been heavily used in the past. Shouldn’t service be designed around use? n Consider operating a reduced Saturday No. 1 route only, such as every two-hour service. Better than nothing at all. Many attend Saturday events only if buses run. Our transit system has been cut to the bone already without Saturday service and with many other system cuts. Has anyone considered federal grant applications for more money instead of dying a slow death? Must we pay the penalty forever for the extravagant Transit Center, made extravagant by federal requirements. This logical reasoning didn’t even cost $30,000.

George Enzmann

George Enzmann was born in Ericsburg, Minn. on March 16, 1923, to farmers Oscar and Martha (Elbe) Enzmann, followed by his brother Ralph a year later (died 2011). He graduated from Falls High School in International Falls, Minn., in June 1941. He then went to a trade school in Kansas City in 1942 to learn to become an aircraft mechanic.  During the war he worked at Consolidated Aircraft in Fort Worth, Texas, as a draftsman work-

ing on the B30 bomber. In 1944, he started attending the University of Minnesota studying engineering and graduated in June 1948 with a degree in aeronautical engineering. He moved to Seattle to take a job at Boeing in August 1948, working as a stress analyst. He joined the Mountaineers shor tly after moving to Seattle and climbed Mount Rainier, Mount Adams, Mount Baker and Mount St. Helens, among others.  He also was an avid sailor and skier.  He joined a local folk dancing group where he met his future wife, Janet Rogers, and they married in February 1954.  Nine months and two weeks later his first child, Heidi, was born followed by a son, Andrew, in 1956.  He moved to Alamo, Calif., in 1959 to work for Sandia Corp. and received his masters degree in civil engineering from UC Berkeley in 1960. He worked at Convair (General Dynamics) in San Diego from 1961-1965, where he worked on the Saturn rocket project. His son Andrew was tragically killed in a skateboard accident in 1964.  He returned to Seattle and Boeing in 1965 and worked on the SST project.  His son Edward was born in 1967 in Edmonds. The family moved to Meadowdale shortly thereafter where he designed and built a trimaran, “Trifle,” and a catamaran, “MyCat.”

After the massive layoffs at Boeing in 1970-71, he moved to Seal Beach, Calif., and worked at various companies but returned to Seattle and Boeing in 1974 and worked on the 747. After another layoff, he moved back to California to Fountain Valley and worked for Northrup on the Stealth bomber and other projects from 1976-1990. At this time he discovered land sailing and raced on several of the dry lake beds in California and Nevada. He retired in 1990 and moved to the lovely town of Coupeville on Whidbey Island in 1991. Janet became a (very) active volunteer with the local museum, librar y, crafts fair organization and others, and George became known for long daily walks, playing ping pong at the senior center and maintaining a large garden.  He also enjoyed playing duplicate bridge and following the stock market.  George passed away on May 26, 2015, after a long battle with skin cancer.  He is survived by his daughter Heidi Enzmann Ontiveros, his son Edward George Enzmann and two granddaughters, Celia Jane Ontiveros and Abigail Elsie Enzmann.

Devroe wins state 3A 800-meter championship By JIM WALLER Sports editor

Good call. Although Oak Harbor High School senior Dejon Devroe owned the best time in the 400 meters among 3A runners in the state most of the season, he made a late switch to the 800. He validated the move with a state championship in the event in school-record time at the Washington finals Saturday, May 30, at Tacoma’s Mount Tahoma High School. The state meet also brought to a close the stellar running career of Oak Harbor’s John Rodeheffer. The senior placed third in both the 1,600 (4:17.08) and 3,200 (9:11.71). Rodeheffer qualified for the state meet in both track and cross country all four years, tied the best finish ever for a Wildcat boy in a state cross country meet (fourth last fall) and set a new school record in the 3,200 (9:06.85), shaving 13 seconds off the mark he set at state in 2013. Together, Devroe and Rodeheffer scored all of Oak Harbor’s 22 points at this year’s state track meet, good for ninth in the team standings. Bellevue won with 58 points. The Wildcats were only three points out of fifth

Also Saturday, the Oak Harbor girls 4x100 relay team of freshmen Amaya Rittierodt and Jenna Cooley and juniors Janae Payne and Matti Miesle finished eighth in 50.75 to score the Wildcat girls only team point in the

meet. It was a strong finish for the Oak Harbor squad, which entered the meet with the state’s 17th-best time. Senior Hayley Lundstrom placed 12th (5-feet) in the high jump Thursday. The boys 4x400 relay team of Devroe, Jared

Gray, Sebastian Ceaser and Mac Nuanez finished 10th (3:27.62). Devroe first ran the 800 at the Stanwood Invitational May 8, the last regular season meet. He won the race but didn’t win a non-preliminary 800 again until the state

finals. He placed second in the Wesco North and District 1 meets. At the district meet, he was runnerup to Shorewood’s Devan Kirk but ran a 1:53.53, breaking the longest standing Oak Harbor High School

record. Tom Bailey ran 1:54 (converted from 880 yards) in 1964. Devroe lowered the mark to 1:52.61 in the state finals. “It was hard giving it (the 400) up after working at it for four years,” Devroe said. His coaches, noting Devroe’s skill set, suggested he give the 800 a try. The turning point on making the switch, he said, was a discussion with teammate Rodeheffer, who encouraged Devroe to bump up to the 800. “Once I got the hang of the 800, I realized I could break the school record,” he said. “I just found out what I was doing (learned how to run the race) and put my trust in God,” he said. In the state finals, Devroe was in fifth place after the first 400 meters, although all eight runners were within strides of each other. With 200 meters left, he slipped through the inside to take the lead. He opened a short gap down the home stretch and held on for the win; Kirk finished second. Devroe admitted he was uneasy not knowing if the other runners were gaining on him over the final meters. “I was just thinking, ‘Don’t give up.’”

Relay team leads Coupeville during state championship weekend By JIM WALLER Sports editor

The Coupeville High School girls 4x200 relay team set a new school record while placing third in the state 1A track meet to highlight the Wolves’ weekend in state championship action. Coupeville placed in two other events at the state track

meet in Cheney, and Aaron Curtin finished eighth in the state 1A tennis singles tournament in Yakima. Senior Marisa Etzell, juniors Makana Stone and Sylvia Hurlburt and sophomore Lauren Grove ran the 4x200 in a school record 1:46.64. Meridian won in 1:45.95.

Stone also placed fourth in the 400 meters (59.01) to help Coupeville score 11 team points and finish 23rd out of the 42 schools that scored. Dalton Martin finished fifth in the discus in 147 feet, topping his previous best by nearly eight feet. Skyler Lawrence placed

16th in the girls shot put with a throw of 28-02.5. Curtin opened the state tennis tournament with a 6-2, 6-1 loss to Chelan’s Eli Jenkins, then he bounced back to thump St. George’s Jacob Martin 6-3, 6-1. Next up was a thrilling, comeback win over Eduardo Ceballos of Cle Elum/Roslyn,

Since 2008, Oak Harbor church has opened doors to students for a quick bite, place to unwind on Monday afternoons

By RON NEWBERRY

T Staff reporter

he scent got Alec Wiedeman’s attention even before he reached the front door. Once inside, his eyes lit up and he followed his nose. “Hamburgers!” Wiedeman called out. “Oh my God! I smell them!” The burgers were an unexpected surprise for Wiedeman and other Oak Harbor High School students who find Oak Harbor Lutheran Church a welcome place to set down their backpacks, grab a snack and unwind one afternoon a week. Since 2008, the church has opened its doors and spread goodwill this way, giving students, many of them athletes, a place to land on Monday afternoons when school is dismissed at 1:15 p.m., an hour earlier than other days. Calling it “Munchy Monday,” the church provides students a place to hang out, eat snacks, shoot baskets, toss around a football, play chess, table tennis and pool, or simply curl up on a couch and study for an hour before it’s time to return to school for practice or head home. It’s not uncommon for more than 100 students to arrive at the church, which is located directly across the street from the high school grounds near Wildcat Memorial Stadium. Church members, most of them retired, run the program, donating their time, food and drinks to make the students feel at home. Monday’s barbecue was a signature event that comes near the end of the school year. Ordinarily, lighter snacks and refreshments are provided, but this week brought out cake and burgers, celebrating another year of the program’s success. Despite the large number of participants, students rarely act out or misbehave, according to Mark Stroud, associate pastor at the church. “They seem to respect the grounds,” he said. Stroud said he and lead pastor Jeff Spencer largely stay out of the way and let church members run the program.

Sophomores Noah Marshall, left, and John Long pile on condiments as they get in line for burgers during Munchy Monday at Oak Harbor Lutheran Church. The church’s congregation sets aside some money each year to fund the event, however the majority of the snacks are brought in weekly by members who come to volunteer their services, Stroud said. The goal is to have one adult chaperone for every 10 teenagers to provide adequate supervision. Some of the volunteers look forward to the experience as much as the students. “This keeps us out of trouble,” D.J. Johnson joked. On Monday, Johnson was stationed beside Tom Coe near the entrance of the recreation room where they intently watched sophomores Camron Robards and Tyler Talkington engaged in a game of pool. “Nobody talks about religion,” Coe said. “You’re here to have a good time.” Soon after 1:15 p.m., the peaceful quiet inside the church was replaced by the voices of students excited to grab a quick bite, then burn some of that energy outdoors. A basketball court out back is popular as is a field where pickup football games take place. Some students on Monday turned to a game of chess or sat and read. “I think it’s really nice,” said Wiedeman, a freshman. “It gives us a lot of time to unwind.” “It’s nice of them to give us time

With a cup of chocolate milk nearby, other students opt for a game of chess. to band together,” said Garrett Stahl, a junior. Dymond Piper, who moved to Oak Harbor this school year, said he learned quickly about “Munchy Monday” from his wrestling teammates. “I was like, ‘Munchy Monday?’” he said. Piper said students try to keep their behavior in check out of respect for the generosity shown by the church and its members who always seem to be in a good mood. “They’re all really happy,” Piper said. Coe said he is encouraged by what he sees. “This high school turns out a lot

of nice young people,” Coe said. “I’ve worked with kids most of my life. I had four of my own.” “This is compassion ministry,” said Tom Piper, one of about two dozen church members who came Monday to help. “The whole idea is to have a safe place to go off-campus for one hour when they do have to leave school.” “We see it as meeting a need in our community, for our neighbors,” Spencer said. “These students literally are our neighbors. They have this unstructured time and we’re able to fill it with a safe place. “Providing a safe place for neighbors is what this ministry is all about.”

Beth Stephens serves as the coordinator for “Munchy Monday,” which has evolved from its roots in 2008 when a former youth pastor, Keith Snavely, started the program as “Mocha Monday.” The old espresso machine is still around somewhere, Stroud said, but has been replaced by cookies, chips, sandwich wedges prepared by Joanne Korengo and fresh vegetables. The drink of choice is now chocolate milk, but regulars just ask for “the usual,” to score points with Allan Swan, the beverage server and a retired Presbyterian pastor. “I go through two-and-a-half to three gallons of chocolate milk,” Swan said. As many as 140 students have attended “Munchy Monday” with 104 walking through the door this week. Although the barbecue traditionally marks the final event of the year, the church will conclude this year’s program June 8. “We’re going to be lost now for three months,” Coe said. Not entirely. As soon as Robards and Talkington set down their pool sticks and packed up shortly after 2 p.m., Johnson spotted an empty recreation center and an opportunity. “Now we get time for a game,” he said.

TAX BURDEN CONTINUED FROM A1 company’s aim in crunching the numbers is to provide transparency about tax burdens. “The main goal was to provide people with information to keep in mind when they make decisions, whether it’s where they want to live or where they want to move a business,” she said. The entire state seemed to fare well when it comes to taxes, she said. In comparison, Washington, D.C.-based Tax Foundation found that the state’s average tax burden in 2001 was 9.4 percent, less than the national average of 9.8 percent. That translates to the state having the 27th highest tax burden. The Tax Foundation determined the total amount of taxes raised in

each state and divided the total by the state’s total income. SmartAsset used the same hypothetical person — with the same average income and home value — to determine tax burden across all the counties in its calculations. Island County’s total tax burden in significantly lower than its neighbors, with the exception of San Juan County — which has the lowest tax burden in the state, according to SmartAsset. Skagit County is the 26th lowest and Snohomish County is the 35th lowest in the state. The significant factor in Island County’s ranking is its low property tax rate. SmartAsset used the median property tax rate in the county to calculate how much the owner of a

$250,000 house would pay. The company came up with $1,985 a year for Island County, which makes it the eighth lowest in the state; the state average is $2,355, and Skagit County’s is $2,513. Island County’s income tax collection, however, is higher than many other counties. SmartAsset estimates that 35 percent of a person’s take-home pay is spent on taxable goods. Island County’s sales tax amounts to $1,437 a year, the study finds. As of July 1, the sales tax rate in Island County will be 8.7 percent, according to the state Department of Revenue. By comparison, most of Skagit County has an 8.5 percent sales tax. Snohomish County sales tax ranges from 7.7 percent in parts of the unincorporated areas to 9.5 percent in other parts of unincorporated areas and seven cities. The Tax Foundation concluded

Wednesday, June 3, 2015 • Whidbey News-Times

that the average state and local tax rates in the Washington is 8.89 percent. In calculating fuel taxes, SmartAsset didn’t look at the difference in pump prices in different counties, but calculated miles per licensed driver in each county. Using the national average fuel economy, the company figured out the average gallons of gas per driver and multiplied it by the fuel tax rate. The fuel tax estimates hover around $200 in each county. The estimated fuel tax that the average Island County resident pays is $225. SmartAsset used the national median household income to gauge what the average person would pay in income taxes. Since Washington doesn’t have a state income tax, the amount for all counties is the same at an estimated average of $7,809 a year in federal income tax. Island County Commissioner Jill

Johnson said the low property tax rate is largely a remnant from past commissioners, who didn’t always increase property taxes by the total amount they could have. State law currently limits the increase to 1 percent, unless residents vote to exceed that. Having a low property tax rate has its advantages, she said. It makes the county a popular place in which to live; the county is often on lists of the best place to retire to. At the same time, she said it makes it difficult to provide government services since many costs increase beyond the 1 percent a year. At some point, the residents may be asked to pay more. “Ultimately, it may be up to the voters to decide what level of service they expect from their county government and how much they are willing to pay for it,” Johnson said.

OLYMPIC PENINSULA CONTINUED FROM A1 ested in participating in this training exercise.” Goldmark’s letter didn’t provide reasons. A representative for the agency contacted by the Whidbey News-Times declined to provide more details. “I’ll let the letter speak for itself,” said spokeswoman Sandra Kaiser. “However, if the Navy were to make a formal proposal, we would certainly give it careful consideration.” THE NAVY would like to add a fixed emitter site at Naval Station Everett Naval Station Annex Pacific Beach on the Olympic Peninsula. It looks like the white globelike structure visible in Oak Harbor on Maylor Point, only smaller. The Navy also wants to add three mobile trucks equipped with emitters. The Ford F-550 trucks would resemble TV news vans with antennas and an operations cab on the back. The electromagnetic transmitters emit signals using frequencies similar to those used by Wi-Fi devices, cordless phones and weather radar systems. Power output of the emitters ranges from 100 to 300 watts. Commercial radio stations, in comparison, have antenna power output of 100,000 watts or more. THE NAVY is seeking permission from the Forest Service to let the emitter trucks drive on their roads. The plan doesn’t change where aircraft fly or at what altitude, and the Navy doesn’t expect more aircraft noise. The Navy’s plan does include more flights.

The Navy expects an estimated 10 percent bump in the average number of flights, which during the past two years was about 1,250 a year. EA-18G Growlers from Whidbey Island Naval Air Station already fly training exercises over the Olympic Peninsula. When conducting electronic-warfare training, pilots use simulations inside the cockpit or they fly to Mountain Home Air Force Base in Idaho to use emitters there.

U.S. Pacific Fleet. “There is some perception what we are proposing is new or different,” Mosher said. “We’re adding equipment to make their training better and more effective.” The Navy contends it could also save fuel, travel and maintenance costs by placing emitters on the Olympic Peninsula — about $4.6 million a year, he said. Shorter flights also would save wear and tear on the Growlers, extending the life of a multimillion dollar aircraft.

MOBILE EMITTERS on the peninsula would provide more realistic training comparable to what pilots would encounter in hostile territory, said John Mosher, Northwest Environmental Program Manager for the

TRUCK-MOUNTED emitters would be parked in remote areas on Forest Service logging roads, selected because they are not popular with hikers or hunters. The emitters suspended above the ground, send out

A firefighter gets encouragement from a young spectator who got a front-row seat from her wagon at Relay for Life.

Selfless acts are what participation with Relay for Life is all about. The annual overnight event raises money for cancer research, creates awareness about the disease and pays tribute to survivors and those who’ve lost their fight. Many volunteers who help put on the event have been impacted by cancer through their own experiences or through loved ones.

“This is a great thing that they do,” said Laura Gritten, a cancer survivor from Oak Harbor. Her husband, Don Gritten, was inspired by the people around him. They walked a survivor lap that kicked off the event, moved by the participants of all ages and those who watched and cheered them on. “This is the coolest thing I’ve ever seen,” he said. About 800 people attended Friday’s opening night, which included cancer survivor Joe Stach’s speech during the opening ceremony, a rap

Wednesday, June 3, 2015 • Whidbey News-Times

Friday’s weather cooperated in a big way, leaving the mood light for many Relay for Life participants. performance by brain cancer survivor Anthony Hale, the Mr. Relay Competition won by Mike Fletcher and the luminary ceremony dedicated to those who have lost their fight to cancer and support those still fighting the disease. The event continued through the night, and wrapped up with a closing ceremony at noon Saturday that featured a speech by Renato DePaolis, a cancer survivor and flight officer from Whidbey Island Naval Air Station. For the first time, firefighters from all five departments on Whidbey Island teamed up to take turns circling the track hooked up to oxygen tanks the entire duration of the Relay for Life event. Jim Anema, a captain with the North Whidbey Fire Department, said he would stay all night Friday and didn’t bring a tent. “I brought a chair,” he said. Relay for Life of Whidbey Island so far has produced about 60 teams raising more than $90,000. Mary Brock, the event chairperson along with her husband Kelly Brock, said she believes that number will exceed $100,000. Donations

may continue to be received until the end of August. IDEX Health and Science of Oak Harbor raised more than $15,000, extending a long streak of being the event’s top fundraising team. Next on the list is the Answer to Cancer team from Whidbey General Hospital, which has raised more than $7,000. Gail Seelow, a member of the Whidbey Island Bank team and Relay for Life’s organizing committee, was one of roughly 175 people who participated in the cancer survivor lap. She has battled an advanced stage bone cancer for three years and recently started an experimental treatment to improve her quality of life and to extend her life. Just being at the 2015 event, where she served cake to visitors and helped sort luminary bags, didn’t seem possible when she was diagnosed three years ago. “I’m stubborn,” Seelow said. “It’s that New Yorker in me.” The number of survivors Friday night caught her attention. “I think I see more and more survivors every year,” she said.
