WhidbeyHealth CEO resigns, effective Tuesday Forbes steps down ahead of July retirement, current CFO named interim replacement By LAURA GUIDO
Geri Forbes has resigned as WhidbeyHealth CEO. Hospital district commissioners an-
nounced Tuesday morning during a special meeting that Forbes’ contract would be amended to accept her resignation immediately. The board named Ron Telles, who was the chief financial officer, as interim CEO.
WhidbeyHealth board Commissioner Ron Wallin said at the meeting it is the board’s intention to name Telles as the full-time CEO at the next regular board meeting in May. Forbes will continue to be employed
by the public hospital district as an executive consultant until her retirement, previously announced as July 1. She will receive $66,046.16 in incen-

N. Whidbey board hears grievances from dist. firefighters
By MARIA MATSON
Most Meals on Wheels recipients have similar responses when asked about the program — the food is good and the company is pleasant. “This is very important to me,” said Kathy Longan. She sat in a wheelchair in her North Whidbey home, where she lives alone and, said it’s nice when the volunteers deliver the meals because she has “somebody to say hi to.” She’s not the only one who feels this way. Last week, leaders from Island Senior Resources and the Northwest Regional Council discussed senior needs and gaps in services with Island County commissioners and the mayors of Oak Harbor, Coupeville and Langley. Island Senior Resources gathered data over the course of 2018
North Whidbey Fire and Rescue firefighters, staff and members of the public aired grievances and reiterated complaints to the three-person board of commissioners at a special meeting Monday evening. The packed meeting at the Heller Road fire station lasted over two hours and consisted of a stream of commenters addressing the commissioners in turn, with the most common criticisms being a lack of transparency, poor communication and inadequate funding. Many said they were also upset about the switch to 9 a.m. for regularly sched-

Whidbey historian Roger Sherman dies at age 84 By JESSIE STENSLAND
Coupeville lost a celebrated historian, storyteller and an important link to the past Thursday when Roger Sherman passed away. He was 84 years old. “It’s an emotional time for a lot of us,” his longtime friend Ron Van Dyk said. “The Sherman family has been a real icon in this
community for 100 years. It’s an end of an era, I’m afraid.” Roger Sherman left his imprint on the Central Whidbey community in many ways. Although he lived in the small farming community for most of his life, only leaving for college and the Air Force, he lived a full and adventurous life. Roger Sherman had deep roots in the community. The Shermans first came to Whidbey Island in the 1890s. His mother’s fam-
ily, the LeSourds, were on the island about a decade earlier, according to Al Sherman, Roger’s older brother. Al Sherman describes an idyllic childhood with his brothers. The island was overrun with bunnies when they were young, which was a great opportunity for boys and a “beagle hound” who loved hunting rabbits, he said. They spent much of their time exploring SEE SHERMAN, A8

Retrieving ocean trash is only the first step Business Commentary By Don C. Brunell
People across our planet are increasingly aware of the growing amounts of trash floating in our oceans. While we are finding new ways to collect it, the more vexing problem is what to do with it. The garbage is accumulating in “gyres” which are large systems of circulating ocean currents, kind of like slow-moving whirlpools. Though the oceans are home to many gyres, there are five that have a significant impact on our environment. For example, our litter which makes its way
into the open ocean mixes with junk from northeastern Asia and ends up in the Great Pacific Garbage Patch (GPGP), the world’s largest. It is located halfway between Hawaii and California and has grown to more than 600,000 square miles, an area nearly the size of Alaska. According to the Ocean Cleanup Foundation, GPGP is not a solid mass of plastic. It includes about 1.8 trillion pieces floating in the sea and weighs 88,000 tons — the equivalent of 500 jumbo jets. Americans are not alone in contributing to its growth. Surface trawlers operating in GPGP found that two-thirds of the writing on the objects collected were Japanese and Chinese. In all, the skimmers picked products manufactured in 12 different nations.
While much of the junk we see floats in the ocean or lands on beaches, the United Nations Environmental Program (UNEP) reports roughly 70 percent of human-generated litter, such as glass, metal and all sorts of cargo and equipment, sinks to the ocean floor. Because of lack of light deep underwater, it is invisible. Cigarette butts, bags and food wrappers, six-pack rings and bottle caps dominate the refuse washing up on beaches. The now infamous plastic straws account for four-percent; however, medical wastes, particularly syringes, and broken glass are dangerous to beach-goers. While we often think of ocean trash as SEE BRUNELL A5
On brink of homelessness as cost of living increases
Editor, We used to have our own little hospital here on Whidbey Island. It was simply Whidbey General Hospital — and it was ours. Our property taxes built it. But where has it gone? For us who’ve had occasions of need that put us there, it was like being treated as family. Over the years, letters to the editor extolled the gratitude folks felt about their experiences there. What’s more, many were surprised to learn they could deduct their hospital bill from their annual property taxes. Those days are gone. Whidbey General is no more. It’s been

Editor, I recently attended an excellent briefing on homelessness given by Island County Human Resources at the Oak Harbor Librar y. I thought the subject was ver y well covered until I realized I am headed towards homelessness myself at a rapid clip. My income tax went up, my property tax has gone up and my groceries cost more ever y day while my income is stagnant. The county needs a transition course for people like me before we hit the streets as a homeless person. Like maybe where is the best place to steal a shopping cart?

taken over by sophisticates who changed its name, looks, operation and its character, and now we who get the bill are expected to pay up and shut up. That became even more clear at the recent public meeting held by the hospital board. It was attended by so many people that one commissioner told the crowd to quiet down and quit talking loud amongst themselves. I was there with a neighbor friend and we heard interesting things from “crowd talk,” many of whom were hospital employees themselves. It seems that the take-over sophisticates were being described more like “so-‘fist’-i-crats.” What’s more, our pockets have been gouged to pay the takeover’s leader a gratuitous six-figure salary to do the carnage. And if that’s not enough, they want to further loot our public trust funds to give her a whopping goodbye gift. How many of us are blessed with such extravagance? And just what do we get for our money? The neighbor with me told of taking a friend with a bursting appendix to the
exalted new facility and waiting six hours for her friend to be seen. During that time she wasn’t even able to get a warming blanket for the friend who was in severe pain. When help did arrive, the doctor who performed life-saving surgery critically asked “why her friend wasn’t brought to him sooner because she was only an hour or two from death.” Sadly, this is not the only sorry-story being told by we who are to shut up and pay the bill. I recall one letter writer telling about one of the new hospital’s orthopedic doctors sending him home without even examining his severed thumb tendon, saying that it would heal itself. He got himself to Providence in Everett as quick as he could where it was properly stitched. Not long ago, he showed me that he now uses his thumb again. A retiring Whidbey General doctor told my wife to go off island for any other needs like what he had performed. Al Williams Oak Harbor

dominantly plastic packaging products, GPGP researchers found it is made up mostly of abandoned fishing gear. According to a recent Ocean Conservancy study, nets alone make up 46 percent of that garbage while the rest largely consists of fishing paraphernalia such as eel traps, oyster spacers, crates, baskets and ropes. “Ghost nets” raise havoc with marine habitats and sea life. These nets, camouflaged by dim light, wrap around rocky reefs or drift in the open sea. When fish, sea turtles, seabirds, marine mammals and even crabs become entangled, they suffocate. Avoiding ocean trash and con-
verting the garbage into usable consumer products are important next steps. Because whales were getting entangled in lines that linked lobster traps together, in 2008 Maine lobstermen were required to switch to weighted lines that did not float up off the bottom. Unusable rope is taken to collection stations along the coast, and Maine Float Rope Company turns it into colorful and durable doormats. It provides local jobs. In the Philippines, GreenAntz started making building bricks from recycled ocean plastics which are mixed with cement. It produced over 225,000 bricks and program expanded into 15 Philippines cities in 2018. University of Texas at Arlington civil engineering professor Sahadat Hossain developed a technology
for taking plastic from landfills and manufacturing giant pins that, when inserted in the failing soil under roadbeds, stabilizes them. In Scotland, start-up MacRebur Co. developed technology to turn plastics heading for landfills into pavement for streets, parking lots and driveways. With global annual plastic consumption reaching 320 million tons, our oceans and landfills are already overloaded. The impetus is to prevent garbage from reaching our oceans and to create new products from trash and make them profitable to bring to market. Stay tuned. • Don C.

TRANSPARENCY CONTINUED FROM A1
uled meetings. “Morale has plunged,” Firefighter/EMT Rich Hoover said. “Our current turnout gear is in bad shape and needs repairs and replacement urgently.” Commissioner TJ Lamont responded to Hoover’s complaints of a lack of transparency by pointing out that he’d already sat down with him to address some of his concerns, and that’d he offered to do the same with other firefighters. “I don’t know how much
more transparent we can be,” Lamont said. “I don’t want it to feel like we’re trying to hide anything.” Hoover and several other firefighters said they want the board to get to know them better and show up more, but Commissioner Marvin Koorn pointed out that they don’t want to look like they’re micromanaging; the board’s job is to set policy, not manage the department. Some later commenters agreed that they didn’t want to be micromanaged.
CONTINUED FROM A1 tive pay for meeting 80 percent of her 2018 goals, according to WhidbeyHealth Spokeswoman Patricia Duff. Wallin said changing her role to advisor will help make the hospital district’s transition between leaders smoother. “I’m very humbled and honored to help lead this organization,” Telles said after the announcement. “We are in a little bit of perilous times, but I look out and I see an incredibly passionate focus here.” Wallin said the hospital board intends to be “more involved” moving forward. He said this won’t mean “micro managing,” but
The Whidbey NewsTimes published a letter in early April signed by 26 district members that stated they had a lack of confidence in the board and urged the public to become more involved. Captain/EMT Matt VanGiesen stood up at the meeting and took responsibility for writing the letter, stating that they were taking the “high road.” “It wasn’t about bashing anybody,” he said. “…This letter was truly about making this organization awesome.” He complimented the board’s work and said that the public has been missing from discussions so
that the commissioners want to receive input from the staff and public. “We want to hear from people,” he said. As a consultant, Forbes will be tasked with providing information and guidance regarding operations and activities, plans and negotiations, according to her amended employment agreement. She will continue to earn her annual base salary of $390,000 but no incentive pay will be earned for work done in the 2019 fiscal year. Telles does not yet have an employment agreement and won’t until the next board meeting, Wallin said. The commissioners’ May meeting is slated for 7 a.m., May 13, in the Robert and June Sebo Health Education Center in the new wing of the hospital.
far. “You’re the reason we’re here. And I think you’ve been missing,” he said as he addressed the crowded room. VanGiesen said communication between the public, the commissioners and fire staff has been broken. “And what I saw tonight was a whole lot of frustra-
tion, but a lot of it’s based on rumors and innuendos and misinformation,” he said. Commenters also said a purported investigation into the interim chief is another point of contention, with some saying they didn’t understand why it is happening, when it will end, or what the status is.
The meeting wrapped up after two and a half hours, with Lamont stating that he is willing to listen to members who have complaints, though it might not produce action immediately. “Thanks for showing up and being a part of this,” he said. “We will try to be more transparent.”

the woods behind Sunnyside Cemetery and the bluff at Ebey’s Landing. “We had a great life in Coupeville,” Al Sherman said. Roger Sherman met his future wife, Darlene, when he was at Washington State University and she was going to the University of Idaho, his brother said. Roger and Al Sherman both went into the service but returned in the 1950s to farm together with their father, Clark Sherman. They were known for raising turkeys but later turned to dairy after the market went bad. They continued farming together after their father retired. They passed on the farm to their children after they retired. In the 1970s, the brothers helped to create Ebey’s Landing National Historical Reserve, which covers most of Central Whidbey and preserves the historical, agricultural and cultural traditions of the scenic area. The brothers agreed to trade the development rights on their property on Ebey’s Prairie for the adjacent Smith farm, which was owned by the U.S. Park Service and also came with a development easement. As a result, about 500 acres in the heart of the reserve are forever

protected. Al Sherman said they probably could have made a lot more money selling their property to developers, but their father taught them to value the land. “That just wasn’t the way we were. Neither one of us,” he said. “We were pretty proud of what we did there.” Van Dyk, who grew up in Oak Harbor, met Roger Sherman through his mother, Dorothy Sherman; Van Dyk and she were on the Island County Historical Society board together, he said. The two men discovered they both liked skin and scuba diving and were soon on their way to many maritime adventures together, including an “interesting” nighttime dive at Bowman Bay, he said. “He was the adventurous type,” Van Dyk said. “He was always doing great things.”
The two men mentored many youngsters in the Sea Scouts post in Oak Harbor over several decades, beginning in the 1960s. Roger Sherman truly enjoyed working with young people, Van Dyk said, “and was generous to a fault.” He was honored as a “captain” in the organization. Van Dyk said he’s run into many grateful people who went through the program when they were young and still remember it well. At one point, the men who ran the Sea Scouts got their hands on a surplus military boat from Alaska and fixed it up; Roger Sherman, who was “a jack of all trades,” used his impressive welding skills on the vessel, Van Dyk said. Roger Sherman was both kind and accepting, his friends and family say. He welcomed girls into the Sea Scouts, for example, while others weren’t so sure, Van Dyk said. Coupeville resident Michael Ferri said his husband, Jim Sherman, came out to the family at a time when society was less-than-accepting of gay individuals; Jim Sherman is Roger and Al Sherman’s brother. After a visit with the couple in San Francisco, Roger Sherman told his brother that Michael was welcome at his home anytime. Jim Sherman and Ferri moved back to Coupeville about

a dozen years ago. “It was a generous gesture of a loving family man,” Ferri said. “He was just a solid, salt-ofthe-earth type of a guy,” he added. “Roger didn’t have a mean bone in his body.” Roger Sherman picked up “the history bug” later in life, according Ferri, who is on the board of the Island County Historical Society. He was particularly interested in maritime history of Puget Sound and wrote
a book, “The Sinking of the Calista.” Al Sherman said his brother’s research was painstaking and his dedication to accuracy was admirable. “I was really proud of him for that,” his brother said. One thing that was sure to get Roger Sherman riled up, his friends said, was someone spreading a historical inaccuracy. Roger Sherman collected so many nautical artifacts over the years that he remodeled a room in his house to resemble a 19th century square-rig sailing ship. He had been working on a second book for years and recently told friends and family that it was done. They hope it will be published. Rick Castellano, executive director of the Island County Historical Museum, said Roger Sherman became the “local keeper of history,” as well as a part of it. A great storyteller, he lent his expertise to cemetery tours and many other talks over the years. More recently, he was a docent at the Jacob Ebey house. Castellano said the museum has honored Roger Sherman at least twice for his contributions to island history. “It’s like we’ve lost another son of the pioneers, and you don’t get more of those,” he said.

Voeller, Glasi pace local runners in marathon By JIM WALLER
Kacie Voeller and Thomas Glasi of Oak Harbor topped the list of local finishers in the Whidbey Island Marathon Sunday. In addition to the marathon, runners competed in a half marathon, 10K, 5K and kids 1K. Andrew Riesen of Seattle (3:07:32) and Dominique Stasulli of Longmont, Colo., (3:13:43) finished 1-2 in the featured race, the 26.2-mile marathon, to lead the men’s and women’s divisions. Voeller was the first local runner to finish, placing fifth overall in 3:24:51. Glasi was the top local man, taking 21st overall in 3:49.32. Oak Harbor’s Willy Mendoza posted another local highlight. Wearing bib number 100, Mendoza, 67, completed his 100th marathon, all run after his 50th birthday. Fighting through injuries that hampered his training and ability to run Sunday, Mendoza took 113th in 4:47:52. Although he qualified for this year’s Boston Marathon, which was run Monday, Mendoza chose to hit the 100-race milestone in his hometown event in front of his family. Seattle’s Ulit Steidl, who finished second in the half marathon last spring, grabbed first this time around in 1:16.32. Seattle’s Kristi Houk, who is among the leaders each year, finished first in the women’s division and ninth overall in 1:29.03. Leading local runners in the half marathon were Oak Harbor’s
Brandon Clapp in 28th in 1:38:49 and Michelle Saksa in 120th in 1:53:55. Oak Harbor’s Andy Wyman won the 10K in 36:49, while Seattle’s Julie George finished second in 39:05. The top local female runner was Oak Harbor’s Brittany Rowand in 21st in 48:38. The 5K winner was Douglas Jordan of Seattle in 15:55. Oak Harbor’s Addisen Boyer was the leading woman and seventh overall in 23:57. Oak Harbor’s Brandon Parham, who won the race in 2018, was the fastest local man, taking third in 20:00. Over 600 participants finished the half marathon, 158 the marathon, 280 the 10K and 228 the 5K. Note: Some of the hometowns of the runners were not listed in the results; therefore, some of the top local finishers may not be included in the results below.

Coupeville wins 2 after offense perks up By JIM WALLER
After scoring only 13 runs in its first 12 games, the Coupeville High School baseball team discovered its offense in two recent wins. The Wolves, winless in the first 12 games, stunned visiting South Whidbey 4-3 Friday and then throttled visiting Sultan 13-2 in five innings Monday. The victories lifted Coupeville into fourth place — the final playoff spot — in the North Sound Conference. The Wolves (2-8, 2-12) play at Sultan at 4 p.m. Wednesday, April 17, and then finish the series with the Turks (1-8, 1-13) at 4 p.m. Friday, April 19, in Coupeville.

Matt Hilborn fires a pitch in Coupeville’s win Friday. Hilborn earned the pitching victory and drove in the winning run. Coupeville 12-0 and 8-3 earlier in the week. “It was nice to finally score more than the other guys,” coach Chris Smith said. “I didn’t need that type of dramatic finish, but, yes, it was fun.” That “dramatic finish” was a two-run rally for the win in the bottom of the seventh inning. Daniel Olson got things going with a base hit, then Gavin Knoblich moved him to third with another single.
field, which allowed Wells to score the winning run. It was fitting that Hilborn was the one to drive in the winner. The senior pitched a strong game, keeping the Wolves in the contest. Hilborn tossed a sixhitter with six strikeouts, three walks and two earned runs. After the Falcons scored once in the top of the first, Coupeville countered with two runs. Back-to-back doubles by Hawthorne Wolfe and Jake Pease scored the first, then Pease raced home on a pair of passed balls. South Whidbey scored single runs in the second and fourth to take a 3-2 lead and set up the exciting end. Wolfe finished with two hits; Hilborn, Pease, Olson, Knoblich and Wells had one each.
Ulrik Wells dropped down a safety squeeze bunt and reached first safely when the defense focused on Olson at third and did not register an out.

SENIORS CONTINUED FROM A1
Angus McMillan Jr. only uses Meals on Wheels when his son is away for work. He said he’s lucky enough to have children who visit often, but when they aren’t around he appreciates the visit from volunteers in the program. “It really picks you up,” he said. Behind basic needs — such as affordable housing, financial assistance and food — socialization was listed as the most important resource, according to Chasity Smith,
director of aging and disability resources at the organization. As the Baby Boomers age and longevity increases, there are a number of barriers to serving these people. “The sex, drugs and rock ‘n rock generation does not show up at the senior center,” said Dan Murphy, executive director of Northwest Regional Council. The council distributes much of the funding used by Island Senior Resources. Murphy said funding for senior-specific servic-
es likely won’t increase in the coming years. Nearly 26 percent of Island County residents are 65 years or older, yet most funding for programs is based on total population and not senior population, Weiser said. The organization is also facing declining volunteerism. The number of volunteers decreased 14 percent over the last year and 29 percent over the last seven years, Weiser said. A lack of affordable housing and shortage of caregivers are also major issues faced by the aging population. The nonprofit suggested more resources such as a home share program,
volunteer visits and volunteer care are needed. Smith said the organization is also in the process of developing outcome measures to help focus spending on where it’s making the biggest difference. For now, a brief visit three days a week when their meals are delivered is all many isolated seniors are getting. Monday afternoon Longan talked to volunteer Susan Myers about her past education, how the program’s meatloaf tastes just like her mother’s and her plans to have company soon. Longan even gave Myers a chocolate treat for Easter.

Kathy Longan bids farewell to Meals on Wheels volunteer Susan Myers. Longan, like many of the program’s recipients, is mostly housebound. Isolation is major issues facing Island County seniors, according to staff from Island Senior Resources.
“You know the housebound people, don’t you,” she said to Myers as the
volunteer left to continue her deliveries. “They want to visit your toes off.”
Homeless man in Oak Harbor accused of stealing truck, dog By JESSIE STENSLAND firstname.lastname@example.org
A homeless man accused of stealing a truck with a dog inside in Oak Harbor last week caused a ruckus in Island County Superior Court the next day. Ryan D. Burchell, 45, appeared in court via a video link from the county jail. Judge Alan Hancock found probable cause existed to believe he committed the crimes of theft of a motor vehicle and malicious mischief. Burchell got more and more upset throughout the hearing and continually interrupted, which isn’t allowed under courtroom rules. He directed his ire at the judge and prosecutor, telling the judge at
one point he will “disrobe you forever.” Morgan Gierhart with Island Defense said she tried speaking with her client before the hearing but was unable to get any information from him. The police report indicates that Burchell has an extensive criminal history in California. Chief Criminal Deputy Prosecutor Eric Ohme said Burchell recently moved from California to Oak Harbor after serving a 14-year prison term for manslaughter. Ohme recommended that Burchell’s bail be set at $25,000 and that he be evaluated by a mental health professional for possible for commitment before being released;
Hancock agreed. According to the police report, a resident reported that his red 2011 Ford Ranger had been stolen while he was getting a haircut. The man said his dog was inside the truck. The police officer noted in his report that Burchell had been in the area before the thefts and left a large amount of personal belongings near the store. Based on a tip, the police found the truck parked on Barlow Street; they watched Burchell get into it and drive away. The police pulled the truck over — with the dog inside — and arrested Burchell. The truck and the pooch were returned
to their owner. Burchell allegedly admitted that he “snatched” the truck but said he did
took his clothes off and rammed the cell door with his body until the door was broken.

Spiral Ham with Red Wine and Citrus Glaze Recipe courtesy of Rebecca Gallop (@adailysomething) on behalf of ALDI Prep time: 15 minutes Cook time: 10-12 minutes per pound of ham Ham: 1 spiral cut double glazed brown sugar ham (about 4 pounds), reserving liquid
Glaze: 1/2 cup red blend wine 1/4 cup orange juice 1/4 cup maple syrup 1/2 cup light brown sugar 1 tablespoon chopped fresh rosemary 1 dash salt 2 tablespoons dijon mustard ■ To make ham: Heat oven to 325 F. Place ham in roasting pan on rack. Pour reserved liquid over ham and cover tightly with foil.

You’re moving and you’ll need to sell your home. You’ve mentioned it to your friends, and two of them– both in real estate–have asked to represent you in the marketing of your home. Which one should you choose? The sale of a home is not a matter of luck or friendship. It is “hard work meeting opportunity.” Marketing successfully involves a process, not a single activity. List with the agent who understands the process and has a history of making things happen. If that individual also happens to be your friend, you may have a fine match. To earn the right to represent you, ask the agent to provide evidence of the price recent buyers have paid for similar homes. Expect the agent to tour your home like a buyer looking for improvements that should be implemented. The agent will teach you to present your home in the most favorable light to excite buyers. Finally, the agent should have a history of implementing successful marketing strategies. Ask about his/her methods and timetable. Once you’ve identified the right agent, make your choice and get started.
If you or your friends are interested in buying or selling a home or land, call me. I can help. Steve is a Managing Broker, Certiﬁed Residential Specialist and an Accredited Buyer’s Representative at
