Local brewer taps into neighboring market Penn Cove Brewing Co. opening in Oak Harbor
By LAURA GUIDO
ig plans are a-brewing at one Coupeville-based business. Penn Cove Brewing Co. is holding the grand opening for its new Oak Harbor taproom on Bayshore Drive at 2 p.m. Wednesday, July 3. The next day, the taproom will host a food truck and beer garden for its Fourth of July celebration, said Mitch Aparicio, one of the owners. Like the Coupeville operation, the taproom will be
family friendly and serve beverages from regional breweries. There is usually a couple of choices in wine from a Whidbey winery as well. The new location is all part of the Aparicio brothers’ brewmaster plan. As the new, larger taproom opens in the city, a brewing facility is simultaneously in the works in Coupeville. Penn Cove Brewing Company started brewing its flagship Madrona Way IPA at Bastion Brewing Company in early 2017. SEE OPENING, A5

Crescent Harbor students say ‘thanks’ Students at Crescent Harbor Elementary got together to say “thank you” for a book donation, the last delivery of the year. “We’ve been donating one book per month, per student for the last six months. Over 3,000 books (were) donated,” said Shelli Trumbull, of Leavitt Group Northwest in Oak Harbor. Leavitt Group “adopted” Crescent Harbor Elementary.
Emphasis targets boating under influence Island County Sheriff’s Office is asking boaters to help keep safe by not consuming alcohol or marijuana while out on the water — especially when operating a boat. As part of a nationally coordinated effort, Operation Dry Water, state and local law enforcement agencies will be conducting boating-under-theinfluence emphasis patrols on waterways across Washington from July 5-7. “Operating a boat while under the influence puts everyone on the water at risk,” Island County
Deputy Christian Hiatt said. “Factors such as wind, sun, noise and a boat’s rocking movement amplify the effects of alcohol and drugs. Balance, vision, reaction time and decisionmaking skills decrease and the likelihood of an accident increases.” “The Island County Sheriff’s Office goal — and the goal of Operation Dry Water — is to educate boaters about the laws regarding boating under the influence and the dangers of boating while drunk or high,” Hiatt said.
According to the U.S. Coast Guard, boating under the influence is the leading known contributing factor in fatal recreational boating accidents. In Washington state, it is illegal to use any substance that impairs a person’s ability to operate a boat. Refusing to submit to a test is a civil infraction with a maximum fine of $2,050. The penalty for operating a boat under the influence is a gross misdemeanor punishable by a maximum fine of $5,000 and 364 days in jail.
Police closed an investigation into allegations that “Hispanic men” assaulted a teenage girl on South Whidbey June 7 after finding no evidence to back up the alleged victim’s story, which seemed to have inconsistencies, according to police reports. The girl’s mother reported to the Island County Sheriff’s Office that the girl stopped at a coffee stand on Howard Road on her way to school and saw two men assaulting a dog. The girl got out of her car to intervene, but one of the men pushed her to the ground and started kicking her in the side, according to the police report. The girl described the men as Hispanic, possible construction workers, who were driving a rusty, red truck. At school, the girl felt a lot of pain in her side and went to the school nurse, who called her mother and recommended that she be taken to the emergency room for a possible spleen injury, the report states. The woman took her daughter to
a clinic in Everett, according to the report. Security video from the car wash did not show the alleged assault, the alleged perpetrators or the red truck. People who had been in the area reported that they hadn’t seen anything. Video from the coffee stand showed that neither the girl nor the red truck had been there that day, a detective wrote in his report. The girl’s description of the barista did not match anyone who was working that day. The girl later changed her story and said she fabricated the part about going to the coffee stand, the report states. In an interview with a deputy, the girl admitted she had participated in a “fight club” but hadn’t done it for a long time, the deputy wrote. She continued to maintain that the men assaulted her, the report states. The girl’s mother left a small poster describing the alleged assault at a nearby business. It ended up being posted on social media and generated angry comments about the alleged assailants.

Court reverses verdict in predator case over racist remark By JESSIE STENSLAND
A state Court of Appeals reversed a jury’s decision to keep a former Oak Harbor man civilly committed as a “sexually violent predator,” finding that an expert witness introduced racial bias in his testimony. In August, a jury in Island County Superior Court will once again hear evidence and decide whether 50-year-old Curtis Brogi should be freed or continue to be held at the Special Commitment Center on McNeil Island. The state Attorney General’s Office is opposing Brogi’s petition to be released, arguing that he still meets the statutory definition of a sexual violent predator. In 2000, Brogi became the first person in Island County to be civilly committed under the state’s Sexually Violent Predator Act. Brogi committed “numerous acts of sadistic sexual violence against young girls and women”
during the 1980s and 1990s, mostly on Whidbey Island, according to the Attorney General’s Office brief on the case. Brogi petitioned the court in 2015 to be released from McNeil Island to a “less-restrictive alternative,” specifically his parents’ house on North Whidbey. In a trial the following year, a jury found that his proposed plan for living n Whidbey would not adequately protect the community, so the judge denied his conditional release. Brogi appealed the decision. The Court of Appeals found that Dr. Harry Goldberg, the psychologist who testified for the state, introduced racial bias and denied Brogi his constitutional due process rights. Brogi has Native American ancestry and has been active with Native American religious and cultural activities. Goldberg testified that Native Americans sex offenders are more likely to reoffend, a statement that may
have given credence to jurors’ latent racist ideas, the Appeals Court ruled. Now Brogi is asking to be released without any conditions. His expert witness concluded that Brogi made such progress in treatment that he no longer meets the criteria of being a sexually violent predator. The Attorney General’s Office opposes his petition once again. The state’s new psychologist found that Brogi suffers from sexual sadism and an antisocial personality disorder, has difficulty controlling his sexually violent behavior and is more likely than not to commit another crime of predatory sexual violent, according to court documents. Court documents describe a long list of sex crimes that Brogi was accused of committing; in some cases he was charged with a crime and in others he wasn’t. The allegations described in court reports are that Brogi
raped a 16-year-old girl for two hours at knifepoint; he and a roommate repeatedly raped a 15-year-old girl; he anally raped a 17-year-old girl in a van and made her bark like a dog; he raped a 15-year-old girl while holding a knife to her throat; he molested a 4-yearold girl; he anally raped a girlfriend and then forced her to perform oral sex; he pulled a gun and a knife on a woman he met at a camp site, forced her to undress, beat her, raped her and photographed the abuse; he lured a woman to his parents’ home under the pretext of a job interview, pointed a gun at her, tied her to a bed and molested her, according to court documents. Brogi’s ex-wife previously testified that he repeatedly raped her, sodomized her with objects and assaulted her. She said he forced her to perform oral sex after anal sex and often insisted that she dress like a child during sex. He raped her when she was pregnant and her
doctor told her not to have sex; she ended up having an emergency C-section, court documents state. In most cases, Brogi denied committing the crimes described in the reports and downplayed the others, often describing them as “rough sex.” Brogi’s expert witness, licensed psychologist Paul Spizman, disagreed with the state’s expert that Brogi suffers from sexual sadism and a personality disorder. “There certainly does not appear to be a clear pattern of sexual sadistic behavior,” he wrote. Spizman writes that Brogi has made positive efforts in treatment participation and no longer meets the requirements under the law for civil commitment. Spizman estimated that the likelihood Brogi will reoffend is 15-20 percent over five years. The state’s expert puts the risk level at 32 percent in 10 years.
Patrol Squadron 4 at NAS Whidbey gets new commanding officer Cmdr. Wayne Lewis relieved Cmdr. Christopher Purcell as commanding officer of Patrol Squadron 4, or VP 4, during a change of command ceremony June 20 at Naval Air Station Whidbey Island. Purcell served as the VP-4 commander since May 2018, providing exemplary leadership for the first West Coast P-8 deployment to the U.S. 7th Fleet area of operation, where VP-4 earned the distinguished Battle Excellence award for their efforts, according to a press release. This accomplishment, among various others were expressed with gratitude during the reading of the Meritorious Service Medal citation presented by Capt. Kevin Long, commander of Patrol and Reconnaissance
(CPRW) 10. After the presentation, Purcell approached the podium and gave his final remarks as the commanding officer of VP-4. “It has been my goal to create a culture where every sailor is a leader, who leads in whatever they do, so that when necessary, VP-4 is ready to lead the fight,” he said. Purcell then acknowledged the support of his family and went on to congratulate Lewis as the incoming commanding officer of VP-4. “It has been an honor to work with you this past year. You truly care about the success of each and every Skinny Dragon,” Purcell said. “I can’t wait to see what this squadron achieves under your leadership.” Purcell then turned
his attention to the entire squadron and acknowledged all of their hard work. “Skinny Dragons, you have inspired me,” he told them. “You have made me proud and given me plenty of things to brag about. You have accomplished more than I thought was ever possible and continue to shape the future of this squadron.” The ceremony advanced to the reading of orders where Lewis
officially relieved Purcell as the commanding officer of VP-4. Following the reading of official orders, Lewis’ wife, Marcella Lewis, pinned the Command at Sea insignia on his uniform. Lewis then approached the podium and spoke as the new commanding officer of VP-4. “To the men and women of VP-4, in the months to come, we’ll have to opportunity to deploy to EUCOM together, to stand the

Thank you, for bringing friendly pitbull to WAIF Editor, An open letter to the person who dropped our dog at the pound: Whether your intentions were good or bad, we are thankful that you chose to take our beloved Jackson to WAIF today. That little rascal got out of our yard when the wind blew our gate open. He could have been hit by a car, stolen by someone who thought we were neglectful — he’s pretty friendly, right? — or worse, someone who’s afraid of pit bulls. Can you imagine? They could have shot him or something of that nature. So, thank you, for being the kind of person who picks up a strange dog and drops him at the pound. We hope he gave you lots of wiggles and kisses. Gratefully yours, a couple of animal lovers.

Johnson, Bristow concisely, clearly tackle local issues Editor, I commend both Steve Bristow, Navy League spokesman, and Jill Johnson, Island County commissioner, for their clear concise letters about two very sensitive issues involving Island County. They tackle these issues with honest, factual, non-confrontational common sense. I thank them for their past and continued service to the military and Island County. Patti Ruple Oak Harbor
Community must help to meet needs of neighbors Editor, To the Whidbey Island community, this letter is to encourage communication, understanding and sensible problem-solving in our community. We must meet the needs of all our neighbors, including the physically and mentally challenged, those who suffer from addiction, the elderly, the sick and the frail. Many of us have been able to work and/or establish businesses which we are proud of and want to hold to a high standard. I understand that but we cannot abuse or neglect those in poverty or who are homeless. Personally, I have worked all my life to support my family of five sons, often two jobs, but now I cannot afford a place to live on my Social Security and retirement. Many of the people on the streets have mental health issues which are a huge barrier in being able to use and follow through with the few resources that are available. Others suffer from severe substance abuse which needs longer term treatment than what is available to them now.
Housing with medical support is absolutely the only answer to many of these problems. It is a basic need whether you are healthy, wealthy and wise, or not. Be thankful for what you have and help those who have not. Remember, they are human beings with feelings, thoughts, hopes and fears. Most of them are more afraid of you than you are of them. Their focus is on where will I sleep tonight, what will I eat, how will I stay warm and dry, and where will I use the bathroom. I do not do business with those who have closed their bathrooms to the public. There are many ways to make positive changes instead of trashing the camps and destroying the few belongings they need to survive. This is their home inside or out and we are their community. Carol d’Haitre Oak Harbor
What would Democrats do to improve our future, security Editor, In a field of 25 Democrat “green” presidential hopefuls, every one of them wants to curb usage, or get rid of completely, fossil fuels and natural gas. It is apparent these narrow-minded candidates lack any knowledge of what fossil fuels provide for us. There are over 6,000 products used in our daily lives created by fossil fuels. In addition to being able to move about anywhere in our country in our fossil-fuel-powered cars, truckers move and provide goods to individuals and businesses, we have air travel to any point on the globe and coal provides coke used in making steel and fuels electricity-generating plants. Fossil fuels are used in the creation of nuclear fuels and reactors, cement, the manufacture of aluminum, refining metals, plastics, nylon, synthetics, plastic pipes, computers, medicines and tires. Without fossil fuels, manufacturing wind turbines and solar panels would be impossible. Natural gas is used to heat
our homes efficiently and cheaply. Even the batteries used in electric cars, and the cars themselves, require the use of fossil fuels in their production. Wind turbines require a lot of cement, steel, carbon fiber and refined metals in their manufacture. Transporting, erecting and maintaining wind and solar farms and transmission lines require all kinds of diesel-operated machinery. Every engine and machine needs lubrication, gear, transmission and hydraulic oil and grease. Wind turbines and solar power panels are inconsistent and unreliable and without fossil fuels could not even be manufactured, or even the access roads be made to erect and service them. All voters need to take a hard look at what each candidate wants to do to our country and not one of them offers any betterment, just regression. Are you better off now, under the Trump administration, than you were under the Obama one? Would any of the Democrat presidential candidates improve our future way of life or the security and safety of our country? Ed Hickey Oak Harbor

Oak Harbor on a path to ‘stinkiest little city in west’ Editor, Kudos to the aesthetically-gifted city leaders responsible for siting the massive sewage plant in the middle of downtown Oak Harbor. It contributes as much to the ambiance of the area as a giant octopus swamping a ship. Now we not only have another eyesore that adds little to the city’s ambiance, but also one that contributes an olfactory bouquet that stuns the senses of townspeople and tourists alike. Maybe it is too late to undo the sewage plant, but let us hope that something can be done to alleviate the horrible odor penetrating our city before we become know as “The Stinkiest Little City in the West.” Helen Bates Oak Harbor

But the plan has always been to start their own brewing facility in their Central Whidbey hometown and serve the whole island. The company will soon have a 10-barrel system, which produces 14 kegs per batch, Aparicio said. The goal is to turn out 1,000 barrels a year, he said. “That’s a lot of beer,” said Aparicio with a smile. He expects to have the fermentation operation up and going by September and have a wide selection of beer available by March 2020. Eventually, the company will also have another location in the Freeland area, Aparicio said. In Oak Harbor, the transformation isn’t complete yet. Events and potentially more space are on the horizon, Aparicio said. Both taprooms currently offer a somewhat limited menu, but Aparicio said he’s open to collaborating with local restaurants in the future. Patrons are welcomed to bring their own food to either taproom. However, Aparicio admits the menu won’t necessarily be the brothers’ focus. “Our forte is craft beer,” he said. Like the IPA, the rest of their concoctions will be named for local landmarks and places.
The festivities kick off with the carnival that runs Wednesday, July 3, to Sunday, July 7, at Bayshore Drive. Then for the holiday on the fourth, a full-day of events are scheduled, starting with the Rotary Club’s Pancake breakfast at 7:30 a.m. at the First United Methodist Church and ending with the grand fireworks finale at 10:30 p.m. that will light up the night sky. Don’t miss the variety of activities on Bayshore Drive, where there will be a street fair, kids games, beer garden, motorcycle show and more. This year, there are a few new touches to the traditional celebration. The parade will be proceeding straight down Pioneer Way, with no twists or turns, as “the community has asked for that for years,” Cribb said. “That’s a huge change.” The Rotary Club of Oak Harbor selected this year’s parade grand marshal as Tony Popp, retired longtime public affairs officer from Naval Air Station Whidbey Island. The fireworks will be launched off a barge floating in the middle of the bay, rather than from the shore of Windjammer’s lagoon as in the past. “Boom over the bay,” Cribb said of the new fireworks plan.

Integrating into the community is important to the company. The brewer y hired Woodinville brewer Craig Dilworth, dubbed “the nutty professor” for his creative and scientific concoctions. In large letters on the new taproom wall, Oak Harbor is spelled using images of jets, the school district, parks and other locally significant scenes. The interior atmosphere of the building is similar to the Coupeville location, but management expects its clientele to be different. Coupeville’s taproom is patronized mostly by tourists,
although there are a group of loyal resident regulars, said Scott Baxter, business operations manager. In the city, the idea is to capture more of the local population and young Navy families. “The community really defines the space,” Baxter said. “The people around it make it their own.” n Taproom grand opening, 2-10 p.m., July 3, 780 SE Bayshore Drive. n Fourth of July Celebration, 2-11 p.m., July 4.
Dedicated Fourth of July devotees have been known to set up tents and camp out all day for festivities, Cribb said. “We anticipate people will make a day of it.” Cribb noted that the old-fashioned festival was once voted No. 7 on the list of USA Today’s 10 Best Readers’ Choice in the category, “Best Fourth of July Festival.” “‘I’m so excited for this event. It really is our favorite,” Cribb said.
Schedule of events July 3-7
Carnival will open at 4 p.m. July 3, 11 a.m. July 4 and 1 p.m. July 5-7 at on Bayshore Drive. The carnival will close daily when visitors stop showing up.

Jack Dow Owensby Jan. 13, 1937 June 22, 2019
Jack Dow Owensby, age 82 and longtime Coupeville resident, passed away at his home on Saturday, June 22, 2019, following a lengthy illness. Mr. Owensby was born in Shamrock, Okla., on Jan. 13, 1937, to Jess and Rose (Tate) Owensby. He moved to West Point, Calif., with his family at age 12. Jack was married to Darlene Gay Whetstone on April 4, 1961, and the couple settled for a time at Lake Tahoe, Calif. They also lived at Penngrove, Calif., for 10 years. They moved to Whidbey Island in 1977, settling in Coupeville. Jack was skilled in many lines of work, including operating heavy equipment, masonry, welding and mechanical work on heavy equipment. Jack was generous with his mechanical gifts in helping others. He enjoyed working on old cars. A favorite past time of his was hanging out and drinking coffee with the guys at the Tyee, after
which he would go to the beach by the ferry landing to watch the ships go by. Jack is survived by his beloved wife of 58 years, Darlene; five children, Evelyn, Mitchell (Becky), Arlon (Carol) and Asa Owensby, and Babette (Mike) Huggins; six grandchildren, Cliff and Heide (Don), Ali, Izabel, Eli and Tally; two greatgrandchildren, Liam and Teagan; two brothers, Steve and Ed; three sisters, Judy, Barbara and Tammy; also numerous other relatives and their spouses. Services will be private. Family and friends are encouraged to share memories and condolences at www.whidbeymemorial. com
746 NE Midway Oak Harbor, WA 360-675-5777
March 17, 1934 June 28, 2018 My apologies for waiting a year. Marilyn Patricia (Duncan) Athey died of cancer at Milbank Care and Rehabilitation Center in South Dakota on June 28, 2018, at the age of 84. She was born in Brawley, Calif., to Lynn and Marian (Caswell) Duncan, but grew up mainly in Oak Harbor and graduated in 1952 from Oak Harbor High School. Marilyn mar ried Stanley Athey, a Marine
at NASWI, and they soon moved to Clinton, Minn., where he had roots. In 1964 they moved to Lead, S.D., where Stanley was employed in a gold mining operation. Following a mining accident, they moved to Big Stone City, S.D. They divorced, each remarried and divorced, and they eventually remarried each other. Stanley passed away from a medical error while in the hospital. Marilyn volunteered countless hours to the American Legion Ladies Auxiliary and the Tabor United Methodist Church, as well as holding down full-time jobs at a local cheese factory and later at St. Williams Care Center, Angela Hall. She loved family gatherings, Minnesota sports, playing board games and cards, and playing softball, badminton, horseshoes and bowling. She was a good neighbor and friend to many and an attentive and loving sister, mom, grandma and great-grandma. Preceding Marilyn in death were her parents, ex-husband Fred Murcray Jr., husband Stanley, son Larry, grandson Jesse and half-brothers Warren and Carl Duncan. Left to cherish her memory are her sons, Leslie of Clinton, Minn., Robert (Marcy) of Big Stone City, S.D. and Dale (Pam) of Panama City, Fla.; daughter Teresa of Willmar, Minn.; sisters Janet (Marvin) Schultz of Spanaway and Barbara (Bill) Strowbridge of Oak Harbor; eight grandchildren; eight great-grandchildren; and one greatgreat-grandchild; as well as numerous nieces, nephews, cousins and friends.
Hazel Williams April 1, 1916 June 13, 2019
(Anna) Hazel Williams went to her Savior, Jesus Christ, singing His praises (literally) on Thursday, June 13, 2019, at the age of 103. Born April 1, 1916, in Blaine County Okla., she was the first child of Howard Basil and Mary Alice (Graves) Williams. Her mother died when she was 7 and she lived with neighbors caring for their toddler and doing farm chores until age 9, when her aunt sent for her to come live with her in Caldwell, Kansas. She graduated with honors from Caldwell High School in 1934 and worked in her aunt’s dress shop until she married Ray Orin Williams on Nov. 7, 1936. Shortly afterward, they moved to California, where she eventually worked for Shell Oil Co. until she became a mother and began building a family of faith, fun and amazing memories. Along with her family, mom was a charter mem-
ber of the First Christian Church (Disciples of Christ) of Garden Grove, Calif., and served actively for 54 years. She ran a successful preschool in the Williams home for 22 years and still received birthday and Christmas cards from former students and their parents up until her death. Although the family took annual vacations each summer, after they became empty nesters, mom and dad traveled extensively, including a trip to the Holy Land. Their favorite places to visit were Alaska and in the autumn, the East Coast. Mom loved maps and would act as co-pilot. She also kept diaries of their travels – what they saw and new friends they made -- and she would keep in touch with people through cards and letters resulting in friends all over the world. During her life, mom rode in everything from a covered wagon to a jet airplane and never lost her amazement of all her life experiences. At the age of 92, she moved to Whidbey Island to be closer to family and drove until the age of 96. Hazel was preceded in death by her husband of 65 years, Ray; mother Mary Williams; father Howard Williams; second mother Hazel Williams; brothers JP Williams, Roy Williams and Henry Williams; sisters Ruby Lankford and Lorine Cornell; nephews Ronnie Williams and Warren (Marilyn) Williams; and niece Esta Bringman. She is survived by her sister Alice Hampton; brother Bobby Williams (Nancy); sisterin-law Helen Williams; son Myron Williams (Karol); daughter Marilyn Blunk;
grandchildren Kyra Himioben, Kym Duncan, Heather Pedraza, Cory Blunk and Chelsea Blunk; eight great grandchildren; two great-great grandchildren; and many nieces and nephews who loved and adored their Aunt Hazel. Thank you to the caregivers, nurses, kitchen staff, Alicia and all at Regency at Whidbey Memory Care who loved mom. She loved you too. Mom’s gentle, steady faith encompassed all she met with humor, unconditional love and acceptance. Her love for her family and friends was not just words. Her faith was a faith of action and there was always a pot of coffee as well as a plethora of food items ready for any traveler who stopped by her home. “She opened her arms to the poor and extended her hands to the needy… Her children arise and call her blessed; her husband also, and he praises her: ‘Many women do noble things, but you surpass them all.’ Honor her for all that her hands have done, and let her works bring her praise at the city gate.” We honor you, Mama. Keep the kettle hot and we will see you again.

work, make it a place where providers want to practice and make it a place where the community wants to go for health care. A recent employee survey showed low job satisfaction, Telles told county and port commissioners, mayors of Langley and Coupeville and the Oak Harbor city administrator. He said he’s been job shadowing different employees throughout the district to get a better idea of their daily routine and needs. Telles said his goal is to make them feel valued. “That means listening to learn not listening to reply,” he said. He said the high turnover of physicians is also a problem, especially because it makes it difficult for patients to develop a bond and trust with their doctor. Keeping provider positions filled should also help reduce the time it takes to get into an appointment and therefore keep people from going off island, he said. To get a better idea of what is causing people to

seek services elsewhere, the hospital district is running an online community survey, which can be found at www.surveymonkey. com/r/WhidbeyIslandExt The low patient volume is largely contributing to the financial shortfalls the hospital is experiencing. Revenue is mostly based on patient visits, which have recently been declining. Telles also discussed plans to convert its Clinton facility into an urgent-care center. This is meant to diver t non-emergency situations away from WhidbeyHealth Medical Center’s emergency room. He said the change would mean less revenue per visit, but it’s better for the patients’ wallets and will hopefully result in a greater volume. The government leaders expressed support for Telles’ goals and vision and many said it’s in everyone’s best interest for the public hospital and its clinics to survive. “Health care can’t change overnight,” Telles said. “It’s going to take time … I’m getting my feet wet right now.”

Coupeville woman serves aboard ‘city’ at sea back home.” Bechard, a 2007 graduate of Coupeville High School, is a mass communication specialist aboard the Yokosuka, Japan-based ship, the only forward-deployed aircraft carrier in the Navy. “I do mainly video production and a little photography, but mostly video, which I love,” said Bechard. Bechard credits success in the Navy to many of the lessons learned in Coupeville. “My mom taught me to always put forth your best and work hard, to remember that it will all pay off in the end,” said Bechard. “Being forward deployed can tough just knowing that we can be called to deployed

Petty Officer 3rd Class Erica Bechard, a native of Coupeville, wanted to join the Navy to travel. Two years later and half a world away, she serves aboard the aircraft carrier USS Ronald Reagan, patrolling one of the world’s busiest maritime regions as part of the leading-edge of U.S. 7th Fleet. “It was a big adjustment from civilian life to come into the Navy and be stationed on a carrier,” said Bechard. “You learn to live a simple, minimalist, life on the ship because you don’t have all those freedoms you have
at any time,” said Bechard. “I do like being stationed here, though, because I’m able to appreciate the Japanese culture.” Named in honor of former President Ronald Reagan, the carrier is longer than three football fields, measuring nearly 1,100 feet. The ship, a true floating city, weighs more than 100,000 tons and has a flight deck that is 252 feet wide. Two nuclear reactors can push the ship through the water at more than 35 mph. “Serving in the Navy is a humbling and meaningful experience,” said Bechard. “I feel like a part of a legacy of a large group of sailors who served before me.”

New Leaf employee helps keep base looking good
‘The guy we can count on’
By LAURA GUIDO
espite their florescent yellow shirts, Bradd Fodor’s team members often go unnoticed as they work on the grounds at the Ault Field base. That is, until recently, when the skipper himself recognized one of his most dedicated workers at New Leaf, Inc. Naval Air Station Whidbey Island. Commanding officer Capt. Matt Arny personally thanked Gene Pulu, a grounds worker for his excellent work and presented Pulu with his personal coin. “I can’t believe I just shook his hand today,” Pulu said of meeting Arny. Pulu is entering his fourth year with New Leaf, an Oak Harbor nonprofit that helps provide employment to adults with disabilities. He’s part of an 11-person grounds crew at the base and recently was also recognized by Source America for his “exceptional character, outstanding achievement and for setting inspiring work and life examples,” according to a press release. Pulu, while grateful for his individual recognition, recognizes the hard work from everyone in the crew. Moments after receiving the coin from Arny, he said he wanted to show it to everybody he worked with. The crew members mow, trim and pick up trash to keep the property looking pristine. Pulu said he enjoys the
work because it’s outside and because of who it benefits. “I like to work to help the military for their sacrifice and their service to our country,” he said. Arny said he appreciates the work that all of the New Leaf employees do each day. He said it’s evident from the condition of the grounds that they take pride in what they do, especially Pulu. “It’s an important job he does, and I’m glad he does it so well,” Arny said. The coin Arny presented to Pulu has the insignia of the air station on one side and the aircraft from Arny’s Navy background on the other. He said he gives them out to give recognition of great service and that Pulu “certainly earned it.” Pulu was badly burned as a young child and had to stay in the hospital for six months for his operation. Glen Kincaid, director of operations at New Leaf, told SourceAmerica that because of his appearance, it was difficult for Pulu to find employment. He came to Oak Harbor in the late 1990s to live near his brother. Pulu’s project manager, Bradd Fodor, said his whole crew does good work, but Pulu’s work ethic can be inspiring for the rest of the team. He recognizes that the team is only as strong as its weakest link, but Pulu is his strongest, he said. “Gene is pretty much the guy we can count on,” Fodor said. “He helps show what they’re capable of doing.”

ARIES – Mar 21-Apr 20 Aries, are you up to stepping outside of your comfort zone? Embrace the challenge and try something completely different from your normal routine. You just may like it. TAURUS – Apr 21-May 21 Let problems flow over you like water off of a duck’s back, Taurus. Worrying will only make things worse, and it’s completely unproductive anyway.

CANCER – Jun 22-Jul 22 Keep an open mind when someone presents an idea to you, Cancer. It’s easy to blow it off without a thought, but you should be more amenable to listening and advising. LEO – Jul 23-Aug 23 Now may be the time to share responsibilities with others, Leo. This is especially true if you are facing deadlines and simply cannot meet them in time. VIRGO – Aug 24-Sept 22 Accept help when it is offered, Virgo. This makes helpful people feel good that they can do you a service. You will have an opportunity to reciprocate in time. LIBRA – Sept 23-Oct 23 Not everyone is on board with your new plan, Libra. You may have to present it a few times before you get a few takers. Be persistent to win others over.

"The best car buying experience I have ever had. It’s important, especially as a woman to feel comfortable and confident when buying a car. I had a terrible experience purchasing my last car from a different ford dealership but I highly recommend frontier ford. Very satisfied with the customer service. I worked directly with a salesman and a manager simultaneously and both were a pleasure to deal with. Thank you!"
