EVENT| FROM PAGE 1 Whidbey Island Radio Control Society will be conducting demonstrations at Ault Field throughout the day. Another event highlight at Seaplane Base will be the 2 p.m. splash down of a PBY Catalina in Crescent Harbor. The PBY was one of the first planes to arrive at NAS Whidbey and is generally hailed as one of the most useful and versatile aircraft of the second World War. According to NAS Whidbey’s commanding officer, there will be no shortage of things to see and hear. “They’ll see a lot of old airplanes and be able to take a look at them. Some planes will be all painted up. There will be a Growler there, and a


number of old warbirds,” said Capt. Jay Johnston. “There will be some good speakers, too, who can relay stories of the good ol’ days.” Tales of Naval Aviation will take place in Hangar One, and will feature various speakers throughout the day, ranging from survivors of the Battle of Midway to those who conducted combat operations in Vietnam and Korea, to authors who have written about World War II battles, the A-6 Intruder and about the Navy in Puget Sound. The first speaker will take the stage at 10:30 a.m. There will be no shortage of entertainment for children, either. There will be the ever-popular bouncy toys, a climbing wall and carnival games all day in the Kids Zone, which will

be located in Haviland Hangar. There will also be clowns and face painting from noon to 3 p.m. Seattle’s Museum of Flight will present its traveling show, Flying Gizmos, at 10: 30 a.m. and 1 p.m., and Predators of the Heart, Washington’s largest traveling wildlife exhibit, will have shows at 11:45 a.m. and 2:15 p.m. Those interested can also stroll through the exhibit of Centennial of Naval Aviation quilts. Local quilting groups will also be on hand to demonstrate and answer questions. For those who can’t go home without a souvenir to commemorate the day, squadrons will be selling patches, hats, mugs and other memorabilia. Food and concessions will be available at the Ault Field location only.

Navy supports Loganberry Festival NAVY This year’s event offers the Navy a unique partnership

Island life and its unique culture are on full display at this year’s Loganberry Festival. The 22nd annual event will be held Saturday and Sunday at the historic Greenbank Farm. “Back to the Farm” is this year’s theme, and it encompasses food plus a whole lot more, according to festival volunteer director Faith Wilder. “Nurturing what is best about the land and lifestyle of Whidbey is what the farm is all about,” said Wilder. “That philosophy is reflected in our reinvigorating the Loganberry Festival to reflect an amazing community — the organizations, arts, foods and entertainment that make the island and the farm so special.” It wouldn’t be Whidbey without the Navy and this year local sailors from Naval Air Station Whidbey Island have helped in a big way. Public affairs spokesman Tony Popp said their volunteers will be involved with everything from cooking hamburgers to supervising the pie-eating contest.


The popular pie eating contest will be back at the 22nd annual Loganberry Festival Saturday and Sunday at Greenbank Farm. COURTESY PHOTO BY MARY JO STANSBURY “In fact, we’re looking at a unique sort of partnership this year with the farm,” said Popp. “One that could perhaps serve as a model for future efforts. “After all the expenses are subtracted, the Navy and the farm will split the gross proceeds. The Navy volunteers can pick their choice of nonprofit organizations to receive donations. The farm will be able to keep their half of the proceeds to benefit their farmer training program,” he said. Other ways in which Navy personnel are helping include assisting children’s activities, overall set-up and take-down of equipment needed for food preparation and more. Farm publicity volunteer Victory Schouten called

the Navy volunteers’ spirit “amazing”. “We really appreciate the Navy’s generous participation” said Schouten. “We would love to encourage a great number of Navy families to come out and enjoy the festival. It is really very family-centric, and they would have a great time.” The festival itself has greatly expanded this year to include more than 100 booths and exhibitors, reflecting the farm’s role as a center for sustainable agriculture, recreation, environmental education

and small-scale economic development. There are a

Veterans stand down in Freeland The top of the flyer for the Veterans Stand Down Saturday in Freeland encourages people to “pass it on” if you know any veterans. I happen to know quite a few, so I figured this would be as good a way as any to spread the word. The Veterans Resource Center in Freeland is sponsoring the event, which will be held at its community center at 1796 Main St. from 9 a.m. to 6 p.m. Veterans from all eras are welcome to attend this event, which includes free screenings KATHY and referrals. There will also be information on enrollment and REED benefits, housing, loan counseling, vision and hearing screenings, mental health and Post Traumatic Stress Disorder. Veterans can also take advantage of free haircuts and/or free pet washes, and there will also be support services available for family members. Add to the mix barbecue, live music, demonstrations and giveaways, and it’s sure to be a wellattended event. I’ve had the opportunity to attend a few events at the Veterans Resource Center, and I have to say I have been impressed. The center’s board is made up of people who truly care about the veterans in our area, and there are a lot. The center’s mission is to make a difference and to connect Whidbey Island veterans to the resources to which they are entitled, and the volunteers do it with respect and courtesy. Those interested in attending Saturday’s event should bring along their DD-214, discharge papers, VA card or retired military ID. Call Gary at 914-7567 or Dave at 206-388-6939 if you have any questions, or go to www.vetsresourcecenter. org.

The mission of the project is to travel the nation to honor, respect and remember men and women who have served in the armed forces and to pay specific tribute to those who sacrificed their lives as part of that service. Because the tribute is mobile, people may visit the memorials without having to travel great distances. The centerpiece of the exhibit is the Traveling Wall, an 80-percent scale replica of the Vietnam Memorial Wall in Washington, D.C. Its 370foot length contains all the names etched on the original. AVTT’s traveling wall is the largest replica in the United States. Several other memorials and exhibits are also included in the traveling exhibit. Visit www.avtt.

Name: Alexander Froelke Service: U.S. Navy Rank: E-6, Aviation Electrician’s Mate 1st Class Born in (hometown): Although I was born in Honolulu, Hawaii, my hometown is Cresco, Iowa. Nickname: “Fro” Place of work: Center for Naval Aviation Technical Training Unit, Whidbey Island Job Description: Lead Instructor for the P-3C Integrated Electrical System Course. I joined the military because: I was a “military brat” and had strong ties to the Navy. I enlisted in August of 1997 following the footsteps of my father and brother. At first I wanted to simply do four years and get out, but that changed after seeing the traditions and camaraderie

the Navy provided. I take great pride in being a Sailor and supporting our country’s mission. Most memorable moment: I’ll never forget the very first maintenance action I performed on an aircraft. I was attached to VPU-2 (Patrol Squadron Special Projects Unit 2) in Hawaii working on a simple wire repair job located in an area on the aircraft referred to as the “hell hole”. I knew at that moment that I made the right decision by joining the Navy and have been enjoying myself ever since. The best thing about being in the military is: The camaraderie really makes the military stand apart from the civilian sector. In the aviation community you are sure to stay connected and run into friends wherever you go. Also, while on deployment, my kids believe I am a superhero off fighting the bad guys - which makes it all worthwhile.

Navy to disestablish 29 NJROTC units

Skywarrior Theater Friday, July 22 Double Feature:

From Naval Service Training Command Public Affairs

GREAT LAKES (NNS) — The Navy announced that it will disestablish 29 Navy Junior Reserve Officers Training Corps (NJROTC) units, effective June 30, 2012, including two Washington units. The 29 units are currently on probationary status for failure to meet statutory and regulatory minimum student enrollment standards. “Our goal is to maintain a high-quality program that ensures the full range of NJROTC activities are available for participating students across the nation and overseas,” said Rear Adm. David F. Steindl, commander, Naval Service Training Command (NSTC), which oversees more than 600 NJROTC units at accredited high schools across the nation. “We are extremely proud of what the NJROTC program offers participating students, so it was important for us to work with each non-compliant high school and continue to support the NJROTC program as long as possible. However, due to projected future funding levels, it is no longer possible to maintain NJROTC units that fail to meet minimum enrollment requirements and are not in compliance with program directives.” Steindle said. Title 10 United States Code, Chapter 102, Section 2031, and Department of Defense Directives require a minimum enrollment of qualified students for NJROTC units. For host schools with a total enrollment of 1,000 or more, the minimum enrollment number is 100. Where schools have less than 1,000 students enrolled, a minimum of 10 percent of the total enrollment is required. The Washington units to be disestablished are Issaquah High School in Issaquah and Mariner High School in Mukilteo.. NJROTC is a citizenship development program that instills in students at secondary educational institutions the values of citizenship, service to the United States, personal responsibility and a sense of accomplishment. The NJROTC curriculum emphasizes citizenship and leadership development. The classroom instruction is augmented throughout the year by community service activities, team competitions, visits to naval activities, marksmanship training, and Science, Technology, Engineering, and Mathematics (STEM) seminars.

Running club builds strength on many levels Whidbey Island Running Club focuses on strength of body, mind and character By MELANIE HAMMONS

Whidbey Crosswind

Everybody wants their kids to be physically fit and strong. Finding programs that emphasize strength of character served up with healthy doses of encouragement and sound advice can be more of a challenge. That’s the prescribed regimen at Whidbey Island Running Club, a year-round team founded in 2008 by coach Catie Rodeheffer and her husband, Bill. “It is such a privilege to be a facilitator for letting kids see that hard work produces results,” she said. WIRC is sanctioned by USA Track and Field, and supported by North Whidbey Parks and Recreation. The team has grown from 20 members at its inception to over 70. Members practice in groups at beginning, intermediate and advanced levels. At least half the participants are from Navy families, said Catie, and quite a few are siblings. Team members are encouraged to participate in a variety of running events and track and field meets. These range from low-key fun runs and “all comers” meets all the way through regional and national Junior Olympic events.

Well-rounded training “The things we try to emphasize — sensible training, goal-setting, agility and strength — these carry over successfully to many other pursuits,” Catie said. “Running is a great springboard for all sports.” Some of the kids do

discover a passion for running. Others are there for the physical fitness aspect, and all appear to enjoy the camaraderie that results from shared group experiences. “My favorite thing about running club is the game time on Fridays,” said Kendall Sirak, 14, referring to the more informal fitness routines and games that WIRC follows at Friday practice. The coaches emphasize leadership skills, too. The kids take turns choosing and leading the calisthenics and strength-building exercises. Teamwork is also taught, especially when they are part of a relay team. Rodeheffer says the youths bring a variety of goals and expectations to the club. “I see kids, especially in the advanced group, whose goal is to make the nationals,” she said. “These are the kids who desire to take their fitness to the next level — that’s a goal I think is very reasonable. “For most of the other kids, there’s a desire to keep fit. I think that’s great as well, because if the goal is to keep moving, and participating, it will help them lay a foundation to achieve a baseline of physical fitness for life,” she continued. Some even see their social life blossom. Because of the teamwork and shared experiences, new friendships form. WIRC members benefit from the wealth of coaching experience the Rodeheffers have compiled over the years. “Bill has been coaching since 1983, and I started in 1985,” said Rodeheffer. “We’ve lived in a variety of

locations: Taiwan, South Dakota, and the Pacific Northwest. The common element is that we’ve coached and shared a passion for running wherever we’ve been.”

Many benefits WIRC holds an additional advantage, one that Rodeheffer says became apparent to her only recently. A Navy family in the process of moving to San Diego, Calif., was looking for a similar club for their three children. “She was very thankful for the experience her kids have had in our running club’s environment,” said Catie. “Because all the clubs she’s looked at in San Diego are try-out only.” Rodeheffer said that WIRC’s philosophy is quite different. “If anything, I envision a fitness program that’s accessible to all kids,” she said, “from those who are not athletic to those who desire to progress to high levels.” Parents seem pleased with WIRC’s approach to physical conditioning for their children. “Our daughter, Nikki, has seen her fitness level improve dramatically since joining WIRC,” said Tracey Blanchard. “What is extra nice is that Coach Catie and Coach Bill make the training so fun for the kids.” As if improving physical fitness, leadership skills, and general knowledge were not enough, WIRC takes on community projects as well. That is also something many parents support. “We appreciate the training and genuine concern that has been extended

to all the athletes,” said Master Chief Avionics Technician Chris Chelberg, whose daughter, Kaitlyn, competed in the 100-meter sprint at regionals. “We also really like the fact that the club gives back to the community by performing park cleanup at Fort Nugent once a month. This community gives us so much — it’s very important that we give back to them,” said Chelberg. This weekend, some club members will hit the road to attend Junior Olympic Nationals in Wichita, Kan. Temperatures there have been in the 100’s, Rodeheffer noted, quite different from Whidbey Island. The Rodeheffers plan to help WIRC members with techniques to beat the heat while staying

focused on doing their best. As a coach, that’s the best reward, said Catie. “It is so neat to see the fruits of their labor at an event like this,” she said. “My hope is that, when these kids are in college, whether they’re on a team or not, they’ll remember, ‘I was on a running team — I can do this.’”

Other new attractions this year are 4-H exhibits with chicks, goats, cows and horses; booths with farm produce and plants; more local artisan foods; expanded children’s activities; and tours of the farm’s agricultural training center and new solar power station. Look for returning attractions as well. Hay rides, pie-eating contests and delicious festival food will be back and better than ever, according to organizers. “We view the festival through children’s eyes - lots of fun things to do, new experiences, a few surprises: all within an old-fashioned setting,” said Wilder. “If the kids enjoy it, the kid in each of us will enjoy it, too.”

If art, science and technology, good food and fun aren’t enough, add some music to the mix. The air will be filled with the music of Whidbey’s favorite musicians and groups throughout the weekend, such as the award-winning barbershop group Cheers; tropical jazz men Bahia; the Shifty Sailors; Rural Characters; Island Strings; Danny Ward and Reality; Spoonshine Duo and more. In the tasting tents, more than 20 Whidbey and Puget Sound wineries will be offering tastings of their finest wines. Several top Whidbey breweries will be offering their best beers as well. There is no admission fee, although there is a $3 parking fee. For information, email operations@ or call 222-3151 or 678-7700.
