Island County Commissioners Request Public Comment on 2018 Conservation Futures Acquisition Project Since 1995, the Island County Conservation Futures Program has helped fund and maintain acquisitions and conservation easements that have protected over 3,437 acres of open space, habitat, tidelands and farmlands to protect the rural character of Island County and provide recreational opportunities. The Island County Board of County Commissioners (BOCC) will hold a public meeting at 11:00am on Tuesday, May 15, in the County Commissioners hearing room located at 1 NE 6th St, Coupeville. The meeting is planned to take public comments and consider the 2018 proposed acquisition project from the Conservation Futures Program. The 2018 proposed acquisition project is a request for a $650,000 Conservation Futures grant as matching funds for an estimated $990,000 project to purchase 40 acres on the north boundary of the Barnum Point County Park, Camano Island. The project is sponsored by Island County Parks. The Conservation Futures Program Citizens’ Advisory Board has reviewed the project and recommends approval. At the public meeting, the applicant for proposed acquisition project will make a presentation and answer questions from the BOCC. The BOCC will also take public comment about the project. Documents related to these proposed projects may be found at: https://www.islandcountywa. gov/GSA/Pages/cff.aspx.

Public Comments Sought Regarding Potential Fares on Island Transit Fixed & Paratransit Service Island Transit is hosting a series of open house events to obtain public comment on the potential implementation of fares on Island Transit fixed and paratransit services. Over the last three years, the Island Transit team has made significant progress on improving its financial position, much of the credit is due to a significantly improved economy. Developing and implementing the financial recovery plan highlighted the reliance on state and federal grant funding that helps Island Transit cover both operating and capital expenses. In an effort to look at means to reduce its dependency on grant funding, Island Transit staff researched and assessed the costs and benefits of implementing fares on fixed route and paratransit route services. Information regarding the assessment will be available at the community meetings and members of the

LOCALLY OPERATED public are encouraged to attend and review this information and provide public comments or suggestions for the board to consider prior to making a decision on whether to continue with a fare-free policy or implement fares. Island Transit invites the public to attend any of the meetings listed below and provide your comments or suggestions.

ON TRACK with Jim Freeman

This may be the first column I have ever written on a porch. Then again, it may not be. It may just be too cool for my slender stream of sarcasm to surface. It may just be too windy for my hairs to stay in place.

It may just be too sunny for a guy from the northwest with no sunglasses at the ready. Faith or fear This morning, I am in Bonita, California, cleaning up after a day late Cinco de Mayo party at the grandest hospice I have ever seen. While a hospice may not be your typical celebration location, for my long time buddy, Bad Bobby, it was perfect. Sunday sunshine, Jersey Mike's subs, greasy pizza, Pepsi-Cola, and the greatest gathering of like minded characters in the history of hospice patios all converged for a convergence. Bad Bobby is the reason I moved to the northwest 35 years ago. Bobby had hired me to do his television commercials for the Bartending Academy in Seattle, Colorado Springs, and San Diego. His faith in me gave me enough of a slim Jim confidence to do something I had never done–talk for money! When a dear friend sees something in you that you do not see in yourself, it makes you think. Back then, half my life ago, I had two questions for myself–Did I have the faith in me Bobby did, or did I have a batch of fear in me? FAITH–forward action involving the heart. FEAR–false evidence appearing real. Don't ya love acronyms? Thanks to Bobby's encouragement, direction, and vision, we pulled it off. Our ads worked. The students showed, they learned, and they graduated, many with jobs at the ready, thanks to Bobby's placement programs. When you are a kid, not listening to anyone's advice, it takes awhile to learn from one's mistakes without making them. I have had more than my share of regrets in life, but there is one for sure act I do not regret–moving to Whidbey Island. But for Bad Bobby's insistence, I might still be floundering in the sea of confusion that comes from living in Hollywood, listening to the advice of others who are not life long friends, but energy vampires who hang out with bored poltergeists. Like First Lady Barbara Bush said, life comes down to three things–Faith, family, and friends.

Try to play catch with your Dad while he is changing the oil. Mom could play catch with me with a game of solitaire going on the dining room table, Kate Smith on the TV, and a Salem cigarette burning in the ashtray next to her six-and-ahalf ounce bottle of Coca-Cola with the city and state of the bottler in raised letters on the bottom.

Mom helped me diagram sentences. Mom showed me Latin and French words while Dad was teaching us Ozarkian. Mom made sure I was always the last boy down in our elementary school spelling bees. Mom knew I would never beat Susan Tracy. Every night after dinner, but before Jock Mahoney and Dickie Jones rode through the sagebrush on “The Range Rider,” Mom would sit me down at the dining room table, a rich mahogany, push the doilies aside, and break out pencil and paper.

Mom took me to words through libraries, book stores, dictionaries, Scrabble, and the Saturday Evening Post. Then there was the day on our four-foot by four-foot standing-room-only porch in Upper Arlington, Ohio, a 1950s suburban getaway north of Columbus, that Mom advised me to no longer use the word “queer.”

ASK ABOUT FINANCING! Serving WhidBey & Anacortes

“Why?” I asked naively. “It means odd.”

www.islandheatpumps.com 360.321.4252

“No, Jimmy, it doesn't mean what you think it means. Just use the word 'odd' from now on.” Of course, I thought her advice was pretty strange in 4th grade, but then, so was every girl in Mrs. Herbert's classroom. Mom would surely get a kick out of Langley's annual celebration known as Queer Pride Day. Times have changed, Mom. If Mom were around this Mother's Day for an ears on conversation, I might ask her if she ever thought how important words are, even when we do not say them.

I don't know about you, but I think in words. Not pictures or visions or images. Just plain old words. Of course, now that I am older, I think in a larger font. Big fonts are also much easier to think in and hear.

COME JOIN US!

Words speak volumes to me.

Nobody does it better.

Words speak joy.

Thank you, Bobby, for making it real.

Words comfort.

Mom alert As usual, this Sunday's Mother's Day will be filled with joyful reminiscence.

Words are awesome.

Words speak hope.

I remember asking my brother Lew years ago how things were going with his world back in Arlington, Virginia. “Everything is copacetic here.” I didn't want to ask my big brother what copacetic meant, but it took me two weeks to find it in the dictionary.

In my life, I think Mom's biggest impact was teaching me to love words. I bet deep down she must have known I would be using my share.

a civilian pilot in the Olympic Mountains, Wednesday, May 2, 2018. The SAR crew was notified of a private plane crash in the Olympic Mountains shortly after 8:15am. Shortly thereafter the SAR crew lifted off from NAS Whidbey Island with a team of five and headed toward the suspected location of the downed aircraft. While enroute, the SAR crew received the phone number of the pilot and were able to contact him to get his exact location. The SAR crew arrived on scene just after 9:00am and immediately saw the crashed private plane on the side of a ridgeline and the pilot on top of a ridge approximately 175 yards above the wreckage. The crew hoisted the pilot aboard the SAR helicopter and transported him to Olympic Medical Center in Port Angeles, Wash. for higher care. This was the second rescue of 2018 for NAS Whidbey Island SAR, which has also conducted two searches and two medical evacuations this calendar year. The Navy SAR unit operates three MH-60S helicopters from NAS Whidbey Island as search and rescue/medical evacuation (SAR/MEDEVAC) platforms for the EA-18G aircraft as well as other squadrons and personnel assigned to the installation. Pursuant to the National SAR Plan of the United States, the unit may also be used for civil SAR/MEDEVAC needs to the fullest extent practicable on a non-interference basis with primary military duties according to applicable national directives, plans, guidelines and agreements; specifically, the unit may launch in response to tasking by the Air Force Rescue Coordination Center (based on a Washington State Memorandum of Understanding) for inland missions, and/or tasking by the United States Coast Guard for all other aeronautical and maritime regions, when other assets are unavailable.

Whidbey Weekly Counties Certify Passage of Library Levy The Sno-Isle Libraries operations levy is officially approved. Canvassing boards in Snohomish and Island counties each met on Friday, May 4, 2018, and certified the April 24 election results. The measure passed with a combined 50.46-percent yes votes to 49.54-percent no votes. “We know that voting for property taxes is a difficult decision for voters,” Sno-Isle Libraries Executive Director Jonalyn Woolf-Ivory said. “While the library district has a long history of public-funds stewardship, the slim margin of passage is a reminder that we must show voters the value they are receiving from their tax dollars every day.” Woolf-Ivory noted that in addition to waiting nine years between levy-adjustment requests, the library district has received 31 straight years of clean audits from the state Auditor’s Office. “Now that the levy is approved, we will continue with that same thoughtful approach to our stewardship of public funds,” WoolfIvory said. “We hear the message from those who supported the measure and we are just as mindful of the feelings and concerns of those who voted ‘No.’ Our goal is to continue to serve everyone.” The approved ballot measure will add 9 cents to the levy rate starting in 2019. The rate will go from the current 38 cents per $1,000 of assessed property value to 47 cents. In subsequent years, the levy rate adjusts to keep levy revenue to the library district within the annual limits outlined in state law. As property values rise, the levy rate is adjusted downward. If property values go down, the rate can go up, but never higher than 50 cents. “Our intent is to follow the same course as in 2009,” Woolf-Ivory said. “We will maintain services with some of the funds and some will go to a reserve account. When expenses outstrip revenue due to the state cap, we’ll

begin using the reserve to postpone returning to voters about the levy for as long as possible.” Securing that long-term funding didn’t happen by itself, she said. “Passing this levy at this time would not have been possible without the committed efforts of the independent friends-of-thelibrary groups, advisory boards and community members across the library district,” WoolfIvory said. The levy provides 98-percent of the library district’s funding. With the measure approved, library staff have plenty to look forward to in serving customers and communities, she said. “We are focused on helping children get ready to read in kindergarten, building civic engagement with programs like Issues That Matter and supporting entrepreneurs and small business owners in strengthening our economy,” Woolf-Ivory said. “And, with the schoolyear end in sight, we’re getting our ‘Explore Summer’ program ready. What could be better?” [Submitted by Jim Hills, Public Information Manager, Sno-Isle Libraries]

Volunteers Needed to Help at Historic Jacob and Sarah Ebey House

ical Reserve. A crew of about 30 volunteers currently staffs the house in pairs, talking about history, answering questions or chatting about our community. The docents are registered through a National Park Service program called Volunteers in Parks. Logged volunteer hours help provide funding that supports the program. The perfect docent is someone who enjoys meeting and sharing information with people. Most enjoy the time they spend in one of the oldest historic residences in Washington State, overlooking Ebey’s Prairie. Prospective docents should not worry if they don’t have a detailed knowledge of Reserve history. Staff and docents work together to learn and everyone helps each other. A number of docents have served since the house first opened in 2011 and play a lead role helping newcomers anticipate the questions visitors are most likely to ask. Docents tend to customize their experience according to an area of interest. Part of signing up is telling the staff something about your interests. Some docents enjoy helping children complete an activity book and achieve Junior Ranger status (complete with an oath and badge). Some use their time to research and create historically accurate clothing that would have been worn on the prairie in the 1850s. Others are interested in the house’s architecture, including a number who have participated in preserving historic structures around the Reserve. Whatever their interest, most of the docents tend to comment on the pleasure they get from helping visitors and talking with people from all over the world.

Penn Cove Water Festival celebrates rich cultural heritage Photo Courtesy of Penn Cove Water Festival Association Traditional Native American canoe races are expected to draw big crowds to the Penn Cove Water Festival Saturday in Coupeville. Festival hours are from 11 a.m. to 5 p.m.; canoe racing begins fron the boat launch at 12:30 p.m.

By Kathy Reed Whidbey Weekly For more than a quarter century, the Penn Cove Water Festival has sought to celebrate Whidbey Island’s rich Native American heritage and its water resources. This year will be no different, as the festival returns to Coupeville Saturday from 11 a.m. to 5 p.m. The annual family-friendly event, put on by volunteers of the Penn Cove Water Festival Association, includes Native American arts and crafts, artist demonstrations, storytellers, music and dance performances, authentic Native American foods, youth activities, exhibits and displays, and the always popular canoe races. The opening ceremony will be held at 11 a.m. on the main stage at the corner of Front and Alexander Streets near the Coupeville Wharf. From that point, it’s easy to find family fun and activities to enjoy before the canoe races get started at the boat launch around 12:30 p.m. “I really think starting in town works well, because the festival opens at 11 a.m., and then people can wend their way through the educational exhibits, arts and crafts and entertainment,” said Vicky Reyes, president of the Penn Cove Water Festival Association. “It’s an easy walk to the boat launch. There are viewpoints along the wharf and along Front Street, but I highly recommend getting down to the launch at some point and seeing how it all happens.”

Special Storytelling Event! Friday, 7:30 p.m.

Pacific Rim Institute, 180 Parker Rd., Coupeville Kick off the Penn Cove Water Festival early with storytelling around the bonfire with anthropologist and lecturer Lou LaBombard. The canoe races, which have several different divisions, will continue throughout the remainder of the day with teams from several area tribes competing. The races were first held in Coupeville in 1930, before World War II brought the early version of the festival to an end. Since the festival’s revival in 1992, the races have remained one of the most popular elements of the event. Other activities highlight the important role the Pacific Northwest’s original residents played in shaping and preserving the land – a rich history of which many may be unaware. “I think what many might not know is that truly the Salish were a peaceful nation,” said Reyes. “They were hunters and gatherers and lived off the land very successfully, even managing the land to some extent to ensure crops survived.

Photo Courtesy of Penn Cove Water Festival Association This year’s Penn Cove Water Festival is dedicated to the memory of Jackie Feusier, pictured here with her husband, Joe Walck.

“Because they were hunters and gatherers, they used what they had,” she continued. “They made their clothing and hats from cedar bark. They used everything and they always asked forgiveness. They were very reverent of the land and their surroundings.”

For the past several years, Feusier used designs bequeathed to the PCWFA by artist Roger Perdue – including this year’s White Raven - to create the unique posters, T-shirts, fine art prints and advertising that has been a hallmark of the festival.

Look for details of that history to be passed on at the festival through the storytellers and performers, Reyes said.

“During the opening ceremony we have a replica of the special paddle we give first-place winners at the races showing the festival is dedicated to Jackie and we’ll be presenting that to her husband, Joe Walck,” Reyes said, adding that an AED unit installed at the boat launch was placed in Feusier’s honor as well. A special paddle will also be presented to Vracien’s husband, Wylie.

“I suppose many of the songs and stories are similar to other native tribes, but those of the Pacific Northwest will have their own twist on it,” she said. “I love the entertainment. The culmination of the day when the Tsimshian Haayuuk Dancers perform and invite the community to join in, it’s the perfect ending to a perfect day.”

Photo Courtesy of Penn Cove Water Festival Association Music and dancing also play a huge role in the Penn Cove Water Festival, taking place from 11 a.m. to 5 p.m. Saturday in Coupeville.

Perfect days like this don’t happen without a lot of work by a lot of people. It takes about 150 volunteers to pull this event together and Reyes said the festival association is always looking for people who want to volunteer. She said they are also looking for new board members, following the passing of longtime bread chairman Ginny Vracien and community activist and graphic artist Jackie Feusier. This year’s Water Festival is dedicated to Feusier’s memory.

Reyes anticipates as many as 4,000 visitors will attend the water festival. A complete list of the performers, maps and festival history can be found online at www.penncovewaterfestival.com. Anyone interested in donating a loaf of homebaked bread to be presented to honored Native American guests, entertainers and canoe clubs is welcome to drop them off Friday at the Coupeville United Methodist Church. Anyone interested in volunteering may email penncovewater festival@gmail.com, noting “volunteer” in the subject line.

away at the first sign you are covering old ground. On the 10th, try asking yourself not how you can get out of the situation, but how much of yourself you can put into it.

CHICKEN LITTLE & THE ASTROLOGER By Wesley Hallock

ARIES (March 21-April 19) In your dealings with others, it’s an excellent week to focus on the points you and they have in common. That may be easier said than done, in the face of opinions that run to extremes. When emotions come into play, as they certainly will, remembering your commonalties is the way to avoid letting conversations descend into attack and defend arguments. Pointing out the obvious wins you no friends on the 10th. TAURUS (April 20-May 20) It’s good to remember, when you are under pressure to side with one person against another this week, that there are many sides to every story. Going with surface appearances is hazardous at any time, but these days, especially. Giving yourself time to sniff out the details before locking in your position will save you many headaches. Precise use of language on the 10th makes full use of silence where silence is best. GEMINI (May 21-June 21) You can’t change the past, but you can make peace with it this week. Let events show you how to proceed. A playful approach to life, besides adding spice to your day, introduces the possibility of revealing some hidden dynamics in your work relationships. Everyone stands to benefit by what awaits discovery, but most of all you. Be yourself on the 10th and be prepared to discover that your limitations are less than you thought. CANCER (June 22-July 22) Acting on your philosophies and beliefs carries you far this week, especially when done in concert with like-minded people. Working together in a spirit of cooperation, whether in personal or business relationships, introduces exactly the element of thoughtful and disciplined creativity that breeds success. Opportunities to collaborate are all about on the 10th. Try as you may, you won’t always see them coming. LEO (July 23-Aug. 22) New beginnings are well undertaken this week, and the most promising won’t necessarily involve advance planning and preparation. Spur of the moment inspirations are likely, some of which hold promise. Others are best let go as quickly as they come. Your task is to know the difference, and it won’t be an easy one. Your most promising avenue on the 10th may be the one you’re least sure of, so don’t hesitate to explore. VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22) Significant changes are possible this week affecting your material and financial status. Opportunities that you passed up the first time around may appear before you again. If you weren’t ready to act on them the first time, it’s possible you are ready now, so don’t shy

LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 22) The question for you this week, regardless of what you do, is not how much you can wrangle from others, but how much you can give. If you’ve been thinking only of yourself, that little change in your approach will work wonders. Accept people for what they are on the 10th and realize they are on their own path. They may or may not appreciate your efforts, but you’re not in it for approval. Giving the gift of yourself is it’s own reward. SCORPIO (Oct. 23-Nov. 21) Avenues and possibilities that earlier were blocked to you open up in a big way this week. Your present limits are not what they were, so be sure you are thinking in present time. Staying stuck in what was holds you back needlessly. Friendly competition is a good way to advance yourself. Let others be pleasantly surprised when you do things they thought you couldn’t do. Friendly is the key word on the 10th. Be wary of overdoing it. SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21) Expectations are counterproductive this week, and most of all those that make demands on the behavior of other people. Attempts to control others will get you into trouble every time. Prejudging the situation on the 10th is most likely a form of self-fulfilling prophecy, so be careful what you think. Positive thoughts lead to positive behavior, which leads to positive outcomes. Family members figure prominently.

CLUES ACROSS 1. Color 4. English prince 10. When you’ll get there

CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19) Increased stamina and physical energy are to be expected this week, with a proportionate increase in the impact you have on other people. The world can't help but sit up and take notice of you. Strong first impressions are easily formed, making this a good time for cultivating the attentions of people key to promoting your enterprises. All of this carries over into your personal life on the 10th.

11. Pivot

AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb 18) Even at your diplomatic best you’re likely to behave with a high degree of intensity this week. Over emphasizing matters will arouse opposition from quarters that would prefer to be on your side. Blockages to your efforts that have long been in place are removed now, meaning you can accomplish more with less effort. In short, you can stop trying so hard. Quirky circumstance favors you on the 10th.

23. Button-like ornament

PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20) The wild card and bringer of good in your life this week is someone you know well, perhaps even a member of your own family. Welcome change in a situation that has grown intolerable is possible as a result. Your own hand plays a major role in unfolding events, but in ways that won’t become clear until later. This means you can relax and not try to over-control the situation. Siblings are important on the 10th. © 2018, Wesley Hallock, All Rights Reserved

Let’s Dish! with Kae Harris

FILL HER UP! - FEEDING MOM ON MOTHER’S DAY. How do we go about telling the wonderful women in our lives Happy Mother’s Day? Can we even begin to find the words to tell them how awesome they are? Are words enough? Is there another way? These are all questions that go through my mind when I think of how best to wish my amazing mother a Happy Mother's Day and sometimes I feel words fall short of how fabulous she is. When this happens and if she’s visiting me at the time, I like to pamper her by cooking for her all day. Breakfast, lunch, dinner and snacks. These women fed and nurtured us from the time we were but tiny little things. Surely, it’s a grand thing to be able to let these ladies put their feet up while we prepare delicious meals for them. But moms are as diverse as everything else in the world, so what does each mom like? While this is all down to personal preference, I wanted to include a few recipes here that your mom might thoroughly enjoy, and who knows, everyone else might love the meals too! Now, let's start with breakfast. Allow your mom to have a lie in and get to work preparing some eggs in a basket. I’ve always called these birdies in a nest, but it’s the same thing. This is one of the simplest breakfasts that can be made and you can put any spin on it. All you need is one egg per each slice of bread, butter, salt and pepper. Cut a circle out of the center of your piece of bread and then put a little butter in the pan to ensure neither the egg nor the bread stick. Put the bread in the pan with a half teaspoon of extra butter in the hole. Crack an egg into this hole and use a spatula to jiggle the egg white around until it cooks. When the egg looks pretty set, turn the bread and egg over and cook on the other side. Now, while you’re doing this – and keeping a close eye on it – toast the circles, because these little rounds of tastiness can be used to dip into the yolk - if that’s how mom likes her eggs, of course. Remove egg

Whidbey Weekly

and bread from the pan and salt and pepper as needed. Now, this is where we can get creative! Plate expertly with a side of fruit – seasonal berries, perhaps – with a small bowl of Greek yogurt, honey and slivered almonds. Serve on a tray alongside a cup of joe (in bed, of course!) and allow her some relaxation while she eats. In fact, this whole breakfast can be taken in so many directions. Why cut just circles out of the bread? Try some hearts, or any cookie cutter shape you might have. Maybe top the egg with her favorite cheese; pepper jack, cheddar, anything she likes. Oh, and while we’re at it, serve those berries with thick, decadent whipped cream. Nothing but the best for mom! If your mom doesn’t fancy eggs, then run with whatever she says she’s in the mood for. Maybe it's French toast. Go all out. Use brioche instead of thick-sliced white bread. If mom prefers oatmeal, spice that up! Add some cinnamon, dates, walnuts and a drizzle of maple syrup. Whatever mom is in the mood for, indulge her on her special day. Though, I must slow down a little. I’m getting ahead of myself. If your mom just wants to sleep in on her day, then leave her be. Have lunch ready for her when she gets up after her lengthy morning slumber. But what to cook? How about some avocado toast? No, it’s not just a passing phase, but a very trendy come-and-go thing at the moment. It’s also an incredibly delicious, rather healthy way to get omega 3’s and 6’s, among other nutrients. So how can we serve this without being bland? Let’s dress up our avocado toast. We could start with some sourdough toast and atop that, spread mashed avocado that has been spruced up with a little lemon juice, salt and pepper. Next, add thick slices of tomato and a couple slices of crispy bacon, et voila! Bacon and tomato avocado toast. But that’s not all my friends, oh no. We can really take lunch up a notch or two. Let’s prepare some pasta salad to go with this. Boil some bow tie or fusilli pasta and set aside to cool. Next prepare the dressing by mixing together ¾

cup of extra virgin olive oil, ¾ cup red wine vinegar, ¼ cup sugar, 1 tablespoon oregano, 1 teaspoon salt, and pepper to taste. Use a whisk to stir until the sugar is completely dissolved. Next, cut some salami into ¼-inch pieces and mix with 2 cups chopped green and red peppers, 2 cups diced tomatoes, 1 cup chopped red onions, and 1/3 cup black or green olives and grated parmesan to sprinkle on top. Mix the pasta, dressing and salad-mix items together and toss well to coat everything. This is one of my favorite pasta salads and sometimes, if I have left over asparagus, I like to chop that up and add it in as well. Hopefully your mom will like it as much as mine does! But if your mom is busy or at work and the first meal she can sit down to enjoy at home is dinner, then let’s go all out for that! How about a nice chicken dish? Something simple yet sophisticated in a rustic kind of way. Let me tell you about a recipe I recently found online in my endless pursuit of all things food. It’s from https://cafedelites.com and it’s positively mouth-watering! Honey, garlic and chicken all on one plate, what more could one want from a meal? The recipe calls for chicken thighs, but you could always use breasts, too. Take about 6 boneless, skinless chicken thighs and season with salt, pepper and 2 teaspoons garlic powder. Set these aside. Heat a skillet over a medium to high heat and sear the chicken thighs (or breasts) on both sides until golden on the outside. Reduce the heat, cover with a lid and continue cooking, turning every five minutes until done and cooked through completely – no pink. Drain most of the juice and continue to cook, adding 1/3 cup honey, ¼ cup water, 2 tablespoons apple cider vinegar and 1 tablespoon soy sauce. Increase heat to medium/ high and cook until the sauce ingredients reduce and thicken. Coat the chicken with this sauce, remove from heat, plate and garnish as desired – fresh parsley and chopped green onions is the way to go for sure! Serve with some steamed jasmine rice and her favorite beverage and watch her enjoy! Dear readers, of course you can always take mom out to her favorite restaurant – especially if it’s something she hardly ever gets to do - it might be a welcome treat. If, however, you decide to fill her up with love and food, then preparing the meals yourself will not go unappreciated, that’s for sure! To all the wonderful mothers out there, have a fabulous Mother’s Day! Please do send any and all comments, questions and certainly recipes you would like to share to letsdish.whidbey weekly@gmail.com and we can do exactly that – Dish!

AVENGERS: INFINITY WAR PG-13 TRUTH OR DARE PG-13 LIFE OF THE PARTY PG-13

By Carey Ross A Quiet Place: John Krasinski directs himself and wife Emily Blunt (who elevates every project she takes on) in this smart, truly terrifying creature feature in which silence isn’t just golden, it’s a matter of life and death. With a tagline of “If they hear you, they hunt you,” this one will haunt you. ★★★★★ (PG-13 • 1 hr. 30 min.) Avengers: Infinity War: By the time you read this, this movie will be closing in on $1 billion in worldwide box office and it’s only been out a week. Marvel Cinematic Universe, I am officially afraid of you. ★★★★ (PG-13 • 2 hrs. 36 min.) Bad Samaritan: This is a movie in which a woman is kidnapped (I’m guessing from the gag in her mouth that she is more prop than actual human) and all of the men involved make her life worse until one of them rescues her. You know, the basic plot of 98 percent of all action movies in existence. Hard pass. ★★ (R • 1 hr. 47 min.) Black Panther: This film just blew by $1 billion in worldwide box office. Between this and "Wonder Woman" (the other topgrossing superhero origin story of all time), looks like that age-old Hollywood belief that it takes a white male to anchor a successful big-budget blockbuster franchise is like so many other age-old beliefs: untrue and outdated. Get with the times, Tinseltown. Representation = $$$. ★★★★★ (PG-13 • 2 hrs. 14 min.) Blockers: A teen sex comedy that puts horny girls looking to lose their virginity at the center of the story, taps the considerable comedic gifts of Leslie Mann, and begs the question of who is the better pro-wrestlerturned-comedic-actor: John Cena or the Rock. ★★★★ (R • 1 hr. 42 min.) Blumhouse’s Truth or Dare: I guess when your company produces "Paranormal Activity" (budget: $15,000; box office revenue: $200 million-plus) and then you follow it up with a couple of Oscar nods (for "Whiplash" and "Get Out"), you get to tag your name onto your movie’s titles (even when it’s illadvised to do so), like this one starring Lucy Hale about a game of Truth or Dare that has some horrific consequences. ★ (PG-13 • 1 hr. 40 min.) Breaking In: Gabrielle Union is a woman not to be trifled with who is trifled with when her children are kidnapped, forcing her to kick way too much ass all over the place. ★★★(PG-13 • 1 hr. 28 min.) I Feel Pretty: Amy Schumer (insecure, wears Spanx) receives a head injury in a SoulCycle

class, gains the self-confidence of a supermodel and begins to win at life. If this is the body-positivity message you’re looking for, and you’d like it to come from a white, blonde, conventionally pretty woman, I guess this is the movie for you. ★ (PG-13 • 1 hr. 50 min.)

Life of the Party: Melissa McCarthy, funniest woman alive not named Kate McKinnon or Tiffany Haddish, is ridiculous and hilarious in every role she plays, while also choosing projects not worthy of her considerable comedic gifts. Will this caper about a divorced mom who goes back to college be a hit ("Spy") or a miss ("Tammy")? ★★ (PG-13 • 1 hr. 45 min.)

www.farawayentertainment.com

Now Showing! Friday, May 11 thru Sunday, May 13

Overboard: This gender-swapped remake of the 1987 Goldie Hawn/Kurt Russell comedy probably won’t live up to the charms of its predecessor, but if tapping Anna Faris–more Goldie’s comedic heir apparent than her own daughter, Kate Hudson–to star wasn’t a stroke of inspired casting, I don’t know what is. ★ (PG-13 • 1 hr. 50 min.) Rampage: Just a few months ago, we were having a serious national debate about Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson as a possible presidential candidate and now here he is starring in this movie with a giant ape. America, get your s**t together. ★★ (PG-13 • 1 hr. 47 min.) Sherlock Gnomes: The initial chapter of this animated series featuring garden gnomes gone wild was "Gnomeo and Juliet." What’s next? A Christmas movie called "Gnome for the Holidays?" "Sweet Gnome Alabama?" "A Prairie Gnome Companion?" "Gnomeward Bound?" "Gnome is Where the Heart Is?" The possibilities are endless. ★ (PG • 1 hr. 26 min.)

Tully: Written by Diablo Cody ("Juno, Young Adult"), directed by Jason Reitman (also "Juno," "Young Adult"), and starring Charlize Theron ("Young Adult," Furiosa), this comedy about an overwrought mother gifted a nanny was made for me, but I’ll let you watch it too. ★★★★★ (R • 1 hr. 34 min.)

August 5, 1954 – April 22, 2018 Steve Gavigan passed away peacefully April 22, 2018 at the age of 63. He was born in Tacoma August 5, 1954 to John and Marion Gavigan; and has been an Oak Harbor resident since 1980. Steve was a loving father, hard worker, and great friend to many. He owned Hizzoners Deli in Oak Harbor, and most recently worked for All Island Pest Control servicing the south end of Whidbey Island. He loved all things that involved sports and ran his own fantasy football league. The memory of Steve will live on through the many friends he has accumulated over the years he has spent working in customer service. Steve was preceded in death by his parents, his son Sean, and his grandson Michael. He is survived by his sister Janet (Jeanne), his daughter Karissa (Jim), their two children Julie and Kate, and his daughter Kristi (Will). Services were held for Steve April 28 at the Wallin Funeral Home in Oak Harbor. He was placed with his son and grandson in the Maple Leaf Cemetery.

The love for the men and women he served with and lead was a hallmark of this exceptional man. His love for country, the people he served, and most importantly his family are the things that have now risen with him to reunite with his Savior, where Lyle looks down upon us all with love, and pride.

Sea, Trees, & Pie Bike Ride Offers Two Treats in One

Riders tackle the hill at Ebey’s Landing along the scenic yet challenging 20-mile route of the 2017 Sea, Trees, & Pie Bike Ride last summer. The event benefits the Whidbey Camano Land Trust.

Cyclists can satisfy their craving for a scenic bike ride and a delicious slice of pie all in one outing on Whidbey Island this summer. The 2018 Sea, Trees, & Pie Bike Ride promises to deliver that on July 22. The third annual event, which starts at 10:00am, is a noncompetitive bike ride that allows riders to actively enjoy the outdoors while soaking in the beautiful landscapes of Central Whidbey. Riders may choose from three scenic routes consisting of 5, 10, and 20-mile loops. The start and finish lines for all three routes is the birding platform at the state park near the Coupeville ferry terminal. A Discover Pass is required to park at the state park. The Sea, Trees, & Pie Bike Ride benefits the Whidbey Camano Land Trust, a nonprofit nature conservation organization that works to protect and restore important natural habitats and resource lands in Island County.

Whidbey Audubon Society Bird in the Hand Festival Receives Grant from Puget Sound Energy Whidbey Audubon Society has received a $500 grant from Puget Sound Energy for the Bird in the Hand Festival, to be held September 22 at Bayview Farm and Garden in Langley. The free, family event will provide a rare opportunity to hold and closely examine specimens from the Society’s collection of stuffed preserved birds, along with children’s activities, live raptors, informative talks on osprey and gardening for wildlife, and more. Festival coordinator Robin Llewellyn explained, “The Whidbey Audubon chapter has federal and state permits to collect birds which have met an accidental demise and display them for educational purposes. Our Bird Specimen Library collection of over 500 specimens of songbirds, waterfowl, raptors, shorebirds and a few seabirds may be unique to this Audubon chapter.” PSE Outreach Manager Walt Blackford said, “PSE is proud to support Whidbey Audubon and the Bird in the Hand Festival. I’m particularly pleased that the Festival program will include a presentation by Mel Walters, director of PSE’s avian protection program. Mel has many years of experience installing measures to make PSE’s electric system less harmful to osprey, eagles, and other large birds.” [Submitted by Cheryl Bradkin, Whidbey Audubon Society]

PBY gala celebrates flight By Kathy Reed Whidbey Weekly Plans for the second annual PBY Naval Air Museum Celebration of Flight dinner and auction have taken off and organizers are hoping to land a sold-out event at 5:30 p.m. Saturday, May 19 at the Elks Lodge in Oak Harbor. The event is a fundraiser for the museum, located at 270 SE Pioneer Way in Oak Harbor, and the evening is expected to serve up some good food and plenty of frivolity from its celebrity guests. “Our emcee and auctioneer, respectively, will be Mark Christopher, KOMO radio news anchor and Jim Dever, host of KING 5 television’s “Evening” show,” said Wil Shellenberger, president of the PBY Memorial Foundation, which runs the Naval Air Museum. The theme for this year’s gala celebrates naval aviation on Whidbey Island and in the Pacific Northwest. This year’s featured aircraft is the EA-18G Growler, the current jet flown by Naval Air Station Whidbey Island’s electronic attack squadrons. And, just like last year, Shellenberger said auction items being offered for the event are worth every penny.

“The live auction features numerous experiential prizes, including two sightseeing flights, a Holland America Cruise, an overnight Seafair Airshow package including a front row view of the Blue Angels pre-flight ceremony, a variety of local dining experiences, several overnight stay and dining experiences at various hotels and resorts in the North Puget Sound area and much more,” he said. “Plus, there will be art work created by local artists and over 50 silent auction items guests can bid on while they enjoy the music of a Saratoga Orchestra string trio. Zanini Catering is providing a buffet dinner, so we know the food will be good.” Proceeds from the dinner and auction will be used to keep the museum open and operating. Organizers don’t think they can beat last year’s grand total of $90,000, but they hope to at least get in the same ballpark. “The John and Norma Berto Family made a one-time $40,000 match [last year] and we raised $50,000, so that was a terrific firsttime outcome,” Shellenberger explained. “To hit $90,000 again would be great, but we do not have a such a large match offer this year. So, a more realistic goal is between $60,000 and $70,000.

Hillary Rivera Photo Courtesy PBY Memorial Foundation Wil Shellenberger, president of the PBY Memorial Foundation, shares details of one of the auction items at last year’s first Celebration of Flight Dinner to benefit the PBY Naval Air Museum in Oak Harbor. The second annual dinner and auction will be held at the Oak Harbor Elks Lodge Saturday, May 19.

“Our first need is to keep the doors open and support the museum’s education programs, and that is where most of the funds will go,” he continued. “If we raise enough money, the trustees could allocate some of the funds to the capital improvement account for the new museum.” Finding a permanent home is the ultimate goal of the foundation, where a custom-built facility could house multiple aircraft in addition to expanded exhibits. It has been a slow process, but the group is making progress. “We have identified a property that we believe is a great location for our new museum,” said Shellenberger. “The due diligence process has been longer and more tedious than we want, but with limited resources, the museum has to move with some caution. We have a non-disclosure agreement with the prospective sellers, so I cannot offer more details other than saying that we are moving closer to a deal.” The PBY Naval Air Museum continues to see an increase in annual visitors. Ideally, the foundation wants to see an average growth of about 10-percent each year, a mark Shel-

lenberger says the museum is on track to hit. All of this, of course, has been achieved by a dedicated group of volunteers who are united in making a positive contribution to history and the community. “The museum is a positive contributor to preserving our local and national heritage for current and future generations,” Shellenberger said. “We have an impact on all generations, especially school age youth who become engaged in conversations about our history and in the science of aviation and aeronautics.” Tickets to the Celebration of Flight fundraising dinner and auction are $75 each and there are only 200 seats available. Reservations can be made by calling 360-240-9500 or stopping by the PBY Naval Air Museum from 11 a.m. to 5 p.m. Wednesday through Saturday and 1 to 5 p.m. on Sunday. Information on the museum and the PBY Memorial Foundation is available online at www. pbymf.org. “Support a good cause, enjoy delicious food and drink, and have a fun evening with friends and neighbors,” said Shellenberger.
