Dino Rossi brings campaign for U.S. Senate to Freeland shipyard

Collins said. “The main issue that we have is, how do we continue to have support to make sure that continues, because jobs to this community and to this island are very important.” The company had roughly 130 workers last April. It now has about 210. Another 20 who were laid off may be coming back in October. “We’re over-exaggerating our point to say this, but we’ve added more jobs in the last year than Boeing did,” Collins said, adding that state and federal funding that has

FREELAND — The latest look at Freeland’s future drew some familiar echoes from Freeland’s past. About 50 people showed up at Trinity Lutheran Church on Tuesday night as county planners unveiled their most recent update of the Freeland Subarea Plan. But instead of growth, most of those in attendance wanted to talk about sewers, pollution and planning work already done. “We finally get a plan, and now you’re going to play with it?” said Freeland resident and businessman Allen Peyser. “Stick with the plan you’ve got and get on with it.” Upcoming comAs for a munity meetings on new sewer the latest Freeland system, plan will be from 1 to Freeland 3 p.m. Tuesday, Oct. 5 Realtor and from 6 to 8 p.m. Leanne Tuesday, Oct. 26, both Finlay said: at Trinity Lutheran “Nothing Church in Freeland. is going to A copy of the plan help it if it’s can be found on the not affordcounty’s Web site at able for www.islandcounty. everyone. net/planning, or in That’s rebel- hard-copy form at the lion.” county building in The Coupeville. 2007 subarea plan, required by the state when it designated Freeland a “Non-Municipal Urban Growth Area,” is designed to guide the character of the South End’s largest commercial center as its population increases by more than 1,000 to an anticipated 4,000 residents by 2020. The meeting was the first of three scheduled by planners to gather community comment before they take their latest proposal to the Island County Planning Commission in November. Two additional community meetings are scheduled for next month.

Nichols Brothers officials make pitch for additional stimulus BY brian kelly South Whidbey Record

FREELAND — There were no complaints of “big government” here. Dino Rossi rolled across Whidbey Island Thursday during his campaign to unseat incumbent U.S. Sen. Patty Murray. But Rossi, a Republican who has been critical of federal stimulus efforts to jumpstart the economy, found a few fans for government assistance during his tour of Nicholas Brothers Boat Builders in Freeland. His visit began and finished with a plea

for more government help from John Collins, CEO of the shipyard. Collins told Rossi of the company’s efforts to regroup after the shipyard went into bankruptcy in 2008. The shipyard rebounded with the help of government-financed ferry projects from Washington and California. And this past August, Nichols Brothers received $841,000 in federal funding that paid for new equipment and large portable weather covers that helped the company expand operations. “That, to me, is something that we worked really hard to be able to do,”

County commissioners set out budget cuts for 2011 BY jessie stensland Whidbey News-Times

COUPEVILLE — After a whirlwind week of meetings, the Island County commissioners finalized a budget, complete with $2 million in cuts, they will present to the public at an Oct. 4 hearing. The commissioners took pains to emphasize that the document is not the final word on budget cuts, but that a lot of fine-tuning may occur after the public has its say. “This year more than any other, it’s more of a living and breathing document, and there is some room for flexibility,” Commissioner John Dean said. The cuts in the budget are largely the same as commissioners had discussed in June, with some small changes. They decided, for example, to cut their contribution to senior services to 40 percent; the cut was originally set at 30 percent. A nutrition program for women and babies, two maternity support programs, flu shots, six patrol deputies, three corrections deputies, a deputy prosecutor, a paralegal, the impaired driving impact panel, the 4-H coordinator and the Master Gardener coordinator are all on the proposed chopping block. The process wasn’t just quick, but went relatively

smoothly this year. Perhaps the most animated discussion was between commissioners and Prosecutor Greg Banks, who urged commissioners to completely cut out lower-priority spending rather than spread the pain around. “What’s more important, prosecuting criminal law or donating to a private nonprofit with other funding sources?” Banks asked, referring to the $158,000 the county is set to contribute to senior services this year. With his budget cuts, he said he’ll no longer prosecute many misdemeanor crimes, including marijuana possession and driving without a license. Banks went on to suggest that the commissioners get rid of dog control instead of the flu vaccination program, which is set to be cut. When the commissioners argued that dog control is mandated, he shot back that so

is prosecuting criminals and other programs the commissioners aren’t adequately funding. “If you would rather have animal control enforcement than criminal law enforcement, that’s a decision you’ve made. That’s on you,” Banks said. The next day, Commissioner Helen Price Johnson did what Banks suggested. She offered to transfer the $110,000 budget for animal control, which is handled by separate contractors on Whidbey and Camano islands, to the sheriff’s office. She said the sheriff’s office could handle dog-related issues instead — which they already do to a limited degree — though she realized it would be at a lower level of service than the animal control officers provide. Sheriff Mark Brown, however, was hesitant to accept the responsibility, though he said he would look into the

idea. After the meeting, Undersheriff Kelly Mauck said it may not make sense to get rid of the two animal control officers, who are essentially deputies dedicated to animal issues, in order to save one deputy. Also, Commissioner Angie Homola made it clear that she wasn’t in favor of the idea. During the discussion with the sheriff, Homola pushed him to look to his administration for cuts. “I don’t see where your administration is affected,” she said, pointing out that the administration in nearly all the other departments

took hits with furloughs, or in some cases lost their positions. Brown, however, said it is more important than ever to have a strong, fully funded administration with people who are “extremely knowledgeable” about labor relations, labor laws and other issues. His administration includes an undersheriff, a chief civil deputy and a chief administrative deputy in the jail. It’s one less person than

Antiques & Modern Dolls & Collectible 221-1167 202 First Street Langley

he’s allowed to have under statute, he said. It’s one more than the last sheriff had. Undersheriff Mauck pointed out that members of the administration are exempt employees, so they can work long hours without overtime pay. He, for example, can fill in with patrols, and he won’t receive overtime pay. “You can use them and abuse them a little more,” Mauck said.

NEWSLINE | WEATHER REPORT: Rain likely today with highs in the lower 70s and lows in the 50s. Showers and light wind are expected on Sunday.

The city has installed a $6,000 security system at its wastewater treatment plant on Coles Road following a series of breakins, Public Works Director Challis Stringer told the Langley City Council this past week. The three break-ins, the latest about a month ago and the other two between then and this past spring, resulted in the loss of about $10,000

worth of equipment, Stringer said. She said missing items include four generators, assorted tools and a jetter used on the city’s sewer lines. Stringer said the city filed a police report and insurance claim, but there has been no trace of the missing items. The investigation continues. “Hopefully, we can restock,� Stringer said. She said city officials had been considering a security system before the break-ins, “and this firmed up our decision.�

“Summer ends, and Autumn comes, and he who would have it otherwise would have high tide always and a full moon every night.� -Hal Borland

Council mulls Langley Passage The Langley City Council will take up the controversial Langley Passage housing development at its meeting next week. The council meets at 6:30 p.m. on Monday, Sept. 20, at city hall on Second Street. A public council workshop begins at 4 p.m. The council, in a closed record hearing, will review the Planning Advisory Board’s recommendation that the project’s preliminary plat be rejected. The council also will consider five appeals filed against the PAB’s review of the project. The PAB has recommended that the appeals be denied.

The plan for the 20-lot development, in the works since 2006, calls for two- and three-bedroom homes on 8.52 acres in the Edgecliff neighborhood between Edgecliff Drive and Sandy Point Road. City planning staff has recommended that the project be approved, saying it would pose no additional danger to the nearby bluff and fits with Langley’s zoning and building rules.

Letters Thank you

Your support was essential To the editor: Thank you to all the people that helped me with my South Whidbey High School senior project, a mounting ramp for “Equestrian Crossings.” Without the help and donations and time from the following people and businesses, it would have been impossible to complete this project: Ace Hardware in Freeland, ProBuild in Clinton, Frontier Lumber in Freeland and Hanson’s Building Supply in Bayview. And of course, thanks for the help of the Central Whidbey Lions Club. Once again, thank you all for helping me make this possible. BRENDAN RILEY Langley

In response

Review by state is needed To the editor: Recent articles in the South Whidbey Record, postings on this newspaper’s online blog, and private e-mails have been filled with facts and rumors, anger and angst about how Langley’s elected officials have been conducting the city’s internal business and managing the taxpayers’ money. These written words have been echoed in many conversations around town. For a number of more-outspoken citizens, the controversy, the lack of confidence and the outright distrust has grown to the point where some are writing and talking about various petitions — including one to recall most of our municipal representatives. This situation is clearly not healthy for our city. We citizens need to have trust and confidence in our elected leaders. We need to be certain of the facts behind this controversy. One established way to determine the facts is to have a formal review conducted by the Washington State Auditor. If all has been as it should be, then our elected officials will be vindicated. If not .... As it is their duty to do what is in the best interests of the citizens of Langley, I urge the mayor and all the members of the city council to call for such a state audit today so we may end this time of uncertainty and get about the business of building our community. HAL SELIGSON Langley

Article was grossly inaccurate To the editor: The recent story on the salaries of two local mayors was very misleading. This article wasn’t about providing information, it was about promoting controversy and was grossly inaccurate. The Association of Washington Salary Survey, used as the foundation for the article, advises caution, in bold letters, about making comparisons based strictly on population. For an “apples to apples” comparison, it is also necessary to look at individual job responsibilities, economic conditions, budget, location and staffing. Both Langley and Coupeville have mayors who act as managers. In your “comparison,” you included towns and cities that are half the size of Langley and Coupeville, and are incomparable. On your graph, La Conner is depicted by a very, very little man, implying how much less La Conner pays to manage its gov-

ernmental affairs. La Conner’s population is 870, compared to Langley’s 1,115 and Coupeville’s 1,890. The La Conner mayor’s salary is only $870 per month, but the city manager’s salary is $5,417 per month. The combined mayor/manager budget is $75,444 per year, while Coupeville pays $63,756 and Langley pays $53,532. Cle Elum is the same size as Coupeville. The mayor gets a monthly salary of $750 and the city manager receives $7,627, for a combined yearly total of $100,524. In your investigation of South Bend, you state that the mayor just received a raise in pay from $400 to $800 per month, and that South Bend does not have a city manager. What you failed to disclose is that South Bend has a city supervisor who gets paid $4,576 per month. The total for the mayor/supervisor in South Bend is $64,512 per year, more than the mayor/manager in Coupeville or Langley.

flowed to the shipbuilding industry has been critical. He also pointed out the shipyard’s success in building the X-Craft, an experimental Navy vessel that was launched in Freeland in 2005. Collins said the company had hoped to get more government work, especially the job of building an advanced version of the X-Craft. “We were very disappointed when that job was can-

celed in midstream because of funding. We didn’t see that coming,” Collins told Rossi. The project would have been a 700,000-hour job, he said, something that would have kept 60 to 80 employees working for 30 months. “That was the kind of thing that we need help with. We need a lot of help,” Collins said. When asked if federal stimulus efforts had meant more jobs, Collins had a simple answer. “Absolutely.” Rossi, who stopped in Freeland between visits to Arlington and Oak Harbor, said his trip to Whidbey was

part of his efforts to meet with small business owners across the state. “We’re meeting with small business owners in every community. I don’t care if they have two people in a gift shop, or hundreds of people in a manufacturing facility, [we’re] talking to them about what’s going on,” he said. Rossi said the true scope of the unemployment rate was close to 17.4 percent. “That’s like two out of 10 people you know aren’t making it for their families. And so the conversations we’re having, a lot of folks are they’re really concerned

about, at least the business owners I’m talking to, they don’t know what their government is going to do to them next week,” he said. “They don’t know what the healthcare is going to cost, they don’t know if the 2001-2002 tax cuts are going to be reauthorized. A lot of them are going, I don’t know if I can really buy this new equipment,” Rossi said. Rossi said greater certainty was needed, as well as modest taxation and predictable regulations. “That’s the way we are going to claw our way out of this unemployment problem, is for small businesses to be helped,” Rossi said. Collins, however, said the shipyard has worked hard to fit with the community and the environment. He highlighted the shipyard’s cutting-edge water treatment system, a milliondollar facility that cleans water more thoroughly than the system used by Freeland’s nearby water treatment system. Nichols Brothers can abide by the regulations set for the shipyard, he said. “That’s a huge success story, for the industry and for this company,” Collins told Rossi. “We want to be a

good neighbor to our friends here down the street from us, who don’t like to hear banging at 6 o’clock in the morning. We can live with that. We can find that balance.” Collins said the company’s bankruptcy had a huge impact on the community, and it’s something Nichols Brothers never wants to repeat. “We’ve got a company that we want to sustain. This company has been through some very hard times,” he said. “We want to make sure what happened two years ago never happens again. “We’ve got to have work. We’ve got to have boats in the yard,” he said. “We need help from some kind of stimulus.” That could be stimulus funding, Collins said, or more support for small businesses. Rossi, who twice ran unsuccessfully for state gov-

ernor, is making his first bid for Congress. He kicked off his campaign in May, and said Thursday he had piled up enough miles on his Ford Escape Hybrid to equal four trips to New York and back. It won’t be smooth sailing all the way to Washington, D.C., though. On Thursday, a new Rasmussen Reports telephone survey of likely voters was released that put Murray in the lead at 51 percent, while Rossi had 46 percent. A previous poll had put Rossi in front, but Rasmussen Reports said Washington is now leaning toward the incumbent Democrat. Rossi wrapped up his visit to Whidbey with a stop at Krieg Construction, and then a tour of Krieg Concrete, in Oak Harbor. Brian Kelly can be reached at bkelly@whidbeynewsgroup. com.

Falcon cross country finishes with five in top 10 BY ben watanabe South Whidbey Record

MILL CREEK — Cross country runners race for the best time possible. They run 100 miles over summer. They run in sunshine and rain showers. Thursday’s meet was run in the latter of those conditions. At the first meet of the year, though, South Whidbey wasn’t worried about time. “It wasn’t even like we wanted to go all out,� said senior boys runner Ben Saari. “We’re just focusing on our race Saturday.� “The first race of the year, I didn’t come out very fast,� Saari added. Saari finished in fifth place with 18 minutes, 47 seconds. He ran off course coming around a loop through the wooded park behind the pool. The rain didn’t affect him; he ran the course set for the district race at South Whidbey High School earlier this week in more rain. “It was super wet and I ran terrible, but it’s not really bad unless it gets muddy,� Saari said. Will Zink sprinted in the last 100 meters on the approach to claim 10th place. He came from behind and sprinted past Cedarcrest junior Madison Waterman for a time of 19 minutes, 23 seconds. Chantal White was the first girls runner to finish for the Falcons. White, a senior, finished sixth in 21 minutes, 28 seconds. “I felt solid,� White said. “It was harder than I expected it to be.� White came over a hill onto

Saari, a senior at South Whidbey High School, finished fifth in the boys division with a time of 18 minutes, 47 seconds. the main field at McCollum Park expecting to cross the finish line. She ran the same location two years ago, but the course changed. When she came around the pool the second time she saw the hill and began her kick before she realized the course was longer than she assumed.

“We didn’t run as hard as we usually go,� White said. Falcons Lillianna Stelling, a sophomore, and Emily Martin, a senior, were eighth and ninth place, respectively. Stelling finished in 22 minutes, 15 seconds, and Martin was 12 seconds behind her. Cedarcrest won both the boys

and girls team scores with 28 and 25 points respectively. Archbishop Murphy was second and South Whidbey was third in both boys and girls team-race points. Cedarcrest senior Cara Strodel won the girls race in 20 minutes, 20 seconds and finished 20 seconds ahead of second-place finisher

Falcon head coach Doug Fulton called the conference meet a “practice� for the South Whidbey Invite. More than 40 schools will compete at South Whidbey High School today.

ADA Trail widens the scope for those looking for nature BY roy jacobson South Whidbey Record

It’s been open less than a month, but the new ADA loop at Trustland Trails between Clinton and Bayview has proven to be a big hit. “We enjoyed your loop trail so much, we went on it three times in one day,” Vanessa Link, 13, of Clinton, wrote in an e-mail forwarded to the South Whidbey Parks & Recreation District, which owns and manages the property and built the trail. “My daughter is very picky about what she drives on,” said Kathy Link, Vanessa’s mother. “If she approved it, that means it’s pretty good.” The ADA Trail is a half-mile nature loop built to the strict specifications of the Americans Disability Act for use by people in wheelchairs, or for those who requires a flat, smooth surface on which to walk, said Parks Director Terri Arnold. It’s the only trail of its kind on Whidbey Island, and a perfect fit for people such as Vanessa Link, who gets around in a motorized wheelchair. “Everyone’s just been so grateful,” Arnold said Monday. “It’s an easy trail to walk, and it’s easy to get to for the elderly and the disabled. It’s quite nice, and very picturesque.” Commencing from the newly built asphalt parking area off Craw Road, the ADA Trail passes through a blown-down section of trees, through a field of deep salal and into a little valley behind the area’s new picnic pavilion. About a half-mile long, the trail of

She said the trail was constructed with $200,000 from the park district’s last approved bond measure, and another $56,000 grant for local trails from the state Recreation and Conservation Office. In the planning stages for about three years, the trail was built in about two weeks by Dirt Movers

of Clinton and was opened in late August, Arnold said. “It was a long, complicated project, but it’s been overwhelmingly accepted,” Arnold said. “I go there two or three times every single day, and there are always cars in the parking lot.” She said that besides people in wheelchairs, the trail also is popular with people who are old or infirm, and need assistance to walk. “I was on the trail the other day and met a woman who told me her

husband was in a wheelchair and had been a shut-in for two years,” Arnold said. “Now he asks to go there regularly.” Local health officials also are enthusiastic. “A community needs access like that,” Melinda Kurtz, a registered nurse and a coordinator with the Island County Health Department, said Monday. “It’s a beautiful trail,” Kurtz added. “When the weather’s good, everybody likes to get outdoors.

This allows people with mobility issues to be outside. Everybody I know who has been on it has loved it.” The new ADA Tail is part of Trustland Trails, a 200-acre preserve transferred by the state Department of Natural Resources to the park district in 2007. The Whidbey Camano Land Trust helped coordinate the transfer of the $3.8 million rural parcel in 2006 as part of a package of property transfers in Island County. The property is near the intersection of Highway 525 and Craw Road, behind the House of Prayer church. Arnold said the trail was one of four improvement projects in the area, including the new picnic pavilion and information kiosk, and the new asphalt parking area that also was built to ADA specifications. There’s also a new connector equestrian trail from the parking area to the main trail, Arnold said. But for the Link family, it’s all about the new ADA Trail. “It opens up a new world for us,” said Kathy Link. “It helps Vanessa in so many ways. We’re very happy about it.” As for Vanessa herself, she wrote: “Now, whenever it’s nice outside, I can guarantee we will consider heading to Trustland Trails for the time of our lives.” For information about Trustland Trails, call 221-5484 or visit www.

How I learned to sing the hymn ‘Be Thou My Vision’ While flipping through the TV stations with my digital converter box remote control last night, I saw an old episode of “Two and a Half Men”


Jim Freeman

where Charlie Sheen’s character is letting the half-man drive his car. Then I knew I had to turn off the TV and write this column. Is there any greater fear than learning how to drive? Riding a bike? Removing your training wheels? Your first kiss? First day without a diaper? For me, it was the moment that I had to take my first driver’s test. Sixteen years old. Columbus, Ohio. I could barely see over the gigantic steering wheel of the 1953 Chevy, three on a tree. For you under-40 kids, a

standard transmission with a floor clutch and a gear shift, up around your nose, on a column by the steering wheel. I remember the space between the dashboard and the front window was bigger than two TV trays side-byside. If I had that Chevy today, I would mount that huge space with an old red rotary phone and pretend to use it in the ferry line. Back to that driver’s test. Not only did I have to experience a bad-breathed Ohio Highway Patrolman as my tester (not that mine was Wrigley’s Juicy Fruit), but I had to parallel-park a car that seemed the size of a war

canoe. I do not remember my final score. I just remember that Mom drove me to the test because Dad’s doctor had recommended that he not be anywhere near me or the testing sight. Dad had tried to teach me to drive just the one time. We were in his company car at the church parking lot. It was a Sunday night, which is like a Monday day when your favorite restaurant is closed. No one was in the parking lot but us. Dad started me out with short, straight distances. His company car was an automatic, so I only had to reach one pedal.

I think it was called the accelerator, although I was only going three miles an hour at the time. Dad seemed nervous. I believe I could have used another layer of clothing. When Dad allowed me to slowly turn right or left, my brow began to bead up, but not as beady as Dad’s stare at the church parking lot pavement. Upon reflection, I would give myself a C+ for fear and a D- for turning. When we got home, Dad told Mom that from now on she would be teaching me how to drive — in her 1953 Chevy with the three on a tree. I never did ask Dad

whether he put more money in the church offering plate that next Sunday. Presbyterian guilt for using our church parking lot after services? I know that many years later when I was helping teach other parents’ kids how to drive, I tried to use church parking lots for the test runs. It made me more comfortable to be near hymnals. Of course, when I took others’ kids out to drive, I never worried like Dad did that day with me. I made sure those kids drove their parents’ cars, not mine. Thanks for the lesson, Dad.

Richard E. Dunham

Richard E. Dunham, 86, of Clinton, died at Providence Hospital in Everett unexpectedly from heart complications on Aug. 27, 2010. Richard was born on Nov. 22, 1924 in Fresno, Calif. to Jack and Clara Dunham. In 1942, he enlisted in the Army Air Corps. During the war, he met Carrie Kopasis while she was waitressing at her father’s restaurant in Martinez, Calif. He shipped out the next week, but their love blossomed. They were married as soon as the war was over. And that love flourished for more than 65 years. They lived in California and Alaska, and retired to Whidbey Island in 1982, where they built their dream home. Richard attended Golden Gate College and Fresno State College. He spent most of his working life in the insurance industry, receiving many accolades and awards, including president of the California Independent Insurance Agents Association and president of the Fresno Insurance Association. He also started the insurance degree program in the California junior colleges, and wrote its first textbook. He was also on the Fresno City Schools Business Advisory Board, and an active member in the Lions Club and the Commonwealth of California. Richard was a member of the California Water Resources Board and was an honored guest of President Kennedy • Page A9

Richard E. Dunham at the groundbreaking for the California Aqueduct. In his spare time, he was the Scoutmaster for his son’s Boy Scout troop. In Alaska, Richard was still in the insurance business, but he also organized and served as director of the Alaska Dump Truckers Association. He also spent several years as a lobbyist in Juneau, earning the friendship and respect of governors and many legislators for his honesty and candor. When he was 11 years old, Richard was hospitalized with a childhood disease. He was taken to the Shriners’ Hospital for Children by his Uncle Harry, who was a Mason. He was cured. Eternally grateful, he vowed to someday pay them back. He did so by becoming a Mason in 1961 and joining the Scottish Rite in 1970. Upon moving to Alaska, he became charter member No. 139 of the Al Aska Shrine in Anchorage. In Alaska, he was editor of Shriners Magazine and served in the Clown Unit, raising tens of thousands of dollars for

Things will get wild and woolly in Coupeville next weekend as the Island County Historical Museum presents its seventh annual Mammoth Day. The Great Woolly Mammoth once roamed the Pacific Northwest — and what’s now Whidbey Island — before the very hairy cousins of modern elephants became extinct 10,000 years ago. Mammoth remains are still found on beaches

and other sites throughout the region. Thanks to the late Dale Conklin and others, however, the Island County Museum has an impressive collection on permanent exhibit. On Mammoth Day, the museum will have experts on hand to share their knowledge and some of their personal collections, and will help residents identify their latest discoveries of “the Mammoth type.” The family-friendly event, which will be held from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. Saturday Sept. 18, also features games and activities for the children, a fossil “dig” and a chance for people to get a photo taken as “Itchy, the Mammoth.” A “Caveman Music” workshop and rain-tube project is also planned. All activities are free with regular paid admission. General admission is $3; $6 for a family of three; and $2.50 for active military, students and seniors. Children younger than 3 are admitted free. For more information, call 360-678-3310.

Whidbey artists open their studios BY patricia duff South Whidbey Record

There will be some new faces on this year’s Whidbey Open Studio Tour. Smugglers Cove textile artist Cheryl Lawrence is taking part in the tour for the first time. Her work, which explores the ancient Japanese textile tradition of katazome, varies from quilts, wall hangings, decorated fabric and clothing to metalwork and tiles. The process involves applying a rice-paste resist through hand-cut stencils, then adding natural dyes and earth pigments for color. “It will be a joy to have people in the studio to share the passion I have for the process and materials used in katazome,” Lawrence said. She creates images on traditional and nontraditional surfaces from delicate natural fibers, as well as on strong architectural materials. Lawrence said her muses are everyday images that catch her eye, such as a moth that clings to the door frame, a strawberry blossom noticed while picking berries, her daughter walking down the road or textures made with brush and ink. See samples of how Lawrence uses some of these motifs at “I hope that people leave with a sense that their day has been enriched by being in a highly creative, beautiful and inspiring place,” the artist said. As a first-timer on the tour, Lawrence said that she is impressed with the level of organization and commitment of the arts council organizers, and by the quality of work being exhibited by her fellow artists. One of those is 10-year Langley resident and longtime artist Doug Calder, who is also a virgin tour guy. He’s grouped on the tour map at Location 41 — the map can be found at, and will also be delivered with the Sept. 22 print editions of the Record and the Whidbey News-Times — with the Langley Public Studio Artists, who also include Susan Jensen (pastels), Steve Marts (digital photography) and Kathleen Otley (mix-media sculpture). They’ll set up shop at the Island County Fairgrounds in Langley. Calder’s ink drawings and acrylic paintings depict primarily the people, culture and natural beauty of Whidbey Island. Calder’s work might conjure up a kind of Rockwellian-style nostalgia for those who live and play regularly on Whidbey.

“I like to explore the small points of life on the island, and the moments in life that give it its flavor,” Calder said. “Clamming on the beach; waiting for a snack at the fish bar; a dad fishing on the dock with his kids, a boat tied up at the dock after a day sailing; a coffee and the newspaper on a sunny table; or the making of a dinner salad at the kitchen counter.” When asked what he’d like viewers to see when looking at his work, Calder reemphasizes his attachment to the simple, unfettered themes of his work, as if to leave a pure taste in the art lover’s mouth. “I like to capture the small moments in our lives that give it its flavor,” he said. In Freeland, and number 29 on the map, Carol Ann Bauer and her family have been creating porcelain pottery at Stillfire Pottery for 15 years on Whidbey Island. “Water and nature themes have always been part of my work,” Bauer said. “Growing up by a wide, winding river in the Midwest, studying art in the mountains of Kentucky, living in Chicago near Lake Michigan and in Seattle by Puget Sound, and now living on rural Whidbey Island have all shaped what and how I see.” All the work is handmade — meaning wheel-thrown and hand-built, individually glazed, and high-reduction fired in a gas kiln. The finished tableware — which includes bowls, vases, trays and mugs — is durable, lead-free, microwaveable and dishwasher safe. “A beautiful line or form and fine detail have always caught my eye. Combining these elements harmoniously into a pot that is functional, as well, is very satisfying,” Bauer added. Visit to see a preview of Bauer’s work. Number 15 on the map in the Ledgewood neighborhood of Central Whidbey is the Salmonberry Studio of Francy Blumhagen, a painter for more than 30 years. Blumhagen revels in what can be imagined from the inspiration of the natural world in her mixed-media collages, prints and paintings. “I love what I get to do as an artist, especially the fun of experimenting and playing with color and pattern as these apply to my subjects from the natural world,” Blumhagen said. “I really enjoy sharing that with the folks who visit my studio.” The Salmonberry Studio specializes in unique mixed-media cards that are individu-

DjangoFest Northwest

South Whidbey Record

Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s time to party like a rock star. Or a gypsy, as the occasion would have it. The popular DjangoFest, which usually sells out all of the available hotel rooms of Langley for five days in September, gets ready to celebrate its 10th anniversary this year when islanders and out-of-towners alike will be treated to a stellar lineup of musicians. It also celebrates the centennial birthday of Django Reinhardt. Nearly 60 years after his death, legendary guitarist Reinhardt, the icon for whom the festival is named, is still one of the most respected players of all time. DjangoFest NW 2010, under the leadership of artistic director Nick Lehr and executive director Stacie Burgua, starts Wednesday, Sept. 22 and goes through Sunday, Sept. 26. Headliners include the Angelo Debarre Quartet with Ludovic Beier, Paulus Photo courtesy of WICA Schäfer with Tim Kliphuis, Hot Club of Detroit will play at 3 p.m. Saturday, Sept. 25 and the John Jorgenson in the Langley Middle School auditorium.

Saturday, September 18, 2010 • The South Whidbey Record


County planners Anthony Boscolo and Troy Davis unveiled the draft plan Tuesday. They reminded those attending that the state requires continued refinements, and that it’s important that the community weigh in on all revisions. “The state pushed us into this,” Boscolo said. “There’s a lot of history.” “Nothing at this point is permanent,” he added. “Our goal is to go before the county commissioners. We’re not there yet.” The latest “form-based” plan envisions Freeland as a pedestrianfriendly little town nestled on the shores of Holmes Harbor. Its commercial core would continue to be businesses along Main Street, anchored by Payless Foods, Linds pharmacy and Ace Hardware. But a new, picturesque area along Myrtle Avenue to the west

would become the new center of a “human-friendly” village. There would be two- and threestory commercial buildings next to the street, their upper levels containing apartments and homes. Development along the two-lane avenue would be compact, including public plazas and greens and civic and institutional buildings that would help make the area the new center of the community. In conventional zoning, “the trend has been for civic spaces becoming leftover land where developers can’t develop,” Davis said, “and nobody uses it.” Parking along Myrtle Avenue would be pushed to the sides and rear of homes and buildings through the use of alleys, and residents and visitors would be encouraged to share parking spaces and to walk to their destinations. Davis said studies have shown that people will walk up to a half mile before hopping in their cars, so planning was done to take that into consideration. He said form-based planning

arose in the 1980s in Florida, and has been spreading across the country since. Unlike conventional zoning, which is based almost entirely on use, form-based planning is a holistic philosophy of development in which the height, width, appearance, human scale, landscaping, parking and access all complement other nearby buildings and the land itself. “Form has a more lasting effect on a community,” Davis said. “It can create a place that’s unique, an environment human beings can thrive in.” He said Myrtle Avenue “has tremendous potential for a main-street feel.” The planners emphasized that Freeland’s growth will happen gradually, and not until the economy improves. But it’s vital to have a plan in place when growth does begin, Boscolo said. But everyone agreed that little growth will occur until a sewer system is in place. Proponents of sewers for

Page A17

Freeland have pushed the project for years. The latest price tag for such a system has been estimated at nearly $34 million, and supporters continue to search for grants and matching funds while meeting with community members to discuss refinements. Some at Tuesday’s meeting, especially those who live along Myrtle Avenue, were concerned about what a designation of more density would do to their future sewer assessments. “It’s going to be forcing people to move,” predicted Freeland property owner Richard Korp, who said a damaging “disconnect” continues to exist between sewer planning and growth planning. “It might cost me a million dollars to hook up,” said another property owner, Kim Kelzer. “Basically, we’re all going to have to sell out to developers.” Other concerns were also raised. Christine Goodwin of Freeland, president of the Friends of Holmes Harbor, said an increased population along Myrtle Avenue could

create even more pollution problems for the beleaguered bay. “It’s already called the dirtiest beach in the state of Washington,” Goodwin said. “What’s another 1,000 people going to do?” She urged a careful analysis of soil conditions in the area before development is allowed to proceed. Mitchell Streicher, who has participated in Freeland planning for years, questioned the need for further revisions. “Why are you getting more input now, after we’ve done all that work?” he said, warning that too much tampering could lead to litigation. Switching gears, Streicher said that, unlike city neighborhoods, “a walkable community isn’t suitable for small towns. I’ve lived in small towns, and none of them are walkable.” But not everyone was negative about the form-based proposal. “I think you’ve come up with a stroke of genius,” Dean Enell told the planners. “I think it will flourish,” he said.

AVOID SCAMS By Dealing Locally

1. Deal with folks you can meet in person. You can avoid most scams if you follow this rule. 2. Never wire funds via Western Union, Money Gram or any other money transfer service. Generally if you are asked to do this, it is a scam. 3. Beware non-local buyers who want to pay you with a Cashier’s Check or Money Order. Fraudlent, fake Cashier’s Checks and Money Orders are common, your bank will cash them then hold you responsible when the fake is discovered weeks later. 4. Beware of non-local buyers who offer you MORE than the asking price for your item to cover “shipping” or “agents” cost. This is a scam. 5. Beware of non-local buyers who only want to communicate over the internet via email. This is a common tactic by scammers. Finally if the offer for your item sounds too good to be true it just might be a scam.
