MILITARY MUSTER NAS Whidbey Island, Washington

June 27- July 3, 2013

VP-40 returns from 5th Fleet deployment After a six-month deployment to the 5th Fleet Area of Responsibility (AOR), the Fighting Marlins of Patrol Squadron 40 (VP-40) returned home this month to Naval Air Station Whidbey Island.

Naval Air Station Whidbey Island has started the process to relocate Crescent Harbor Adventures Outdoor Gear Rental to the Convergence Zone on Ault Field to make these services more visible and accessible to Sailors who live aboard the air station.

The Fighting Marlins executed 538 operational sorties encompassing 5229.6 flight hours while successfully conducting several detachments in the region. The squadron’s maintenance team performed over 23,600 man-hours on mission critical systems and avionics, contributing to a 99 percent mission completion rate. The squadron supported several major operational units including the USS John C. Stennis (CVN 74) and USS Dwight D. Eisenhower (CVN 69) carrier strike groups. Additionally, VP-40 played an integral role in maritime security and anti-piracy operations. The squadron also provided maritime support during 26 exercises throughout the 5th Fleet AOR. “As Fighting Marlins, you’ve got a glorious history,” said Vice Adm. John W. Miller, Commander, U.S. Naval Forces Central Command/United States 5th Fleet/Combined Maritime Forces, during a visit with VP-40 during their deployment. “You’ve built on that. You’ve made it better. Take what you learned here and be proud of it, go home and talk about it.”

NAS Whidbey Relocating Outdoor Services

NAS Whidbey Island’s Morale Welfare and Recreation (MWR) Department anticipates completing the move by July 25. According to Wayne Short, MWR’s Installation Program Manager, the most immediate impact with this initiative impacts Crescent Harbor Marina.

Upon landing, Lt. Adam Kimball dropped down onto one knee and proposed to his fiancé. He said they had planned to get engaged since before deployment. She didn’t know the proposal was going to be public, he said. “She was stunned,” said Kimball. “I’ve never been so happy before in my life.”

Family and friends of the squadron held signs, The Fighting Marlins are home for a 12-month flowers and flags as they anxiously awaited Inter-Deployment Readiness Cycle before they their Sailor’s return. They cheered as the aircraft deploy again next year.

“I could not be more proud of the Sailors, chiefs and officers and what they accomplished during this deployment,” said Cmdr. Patrick D. Hansen, VP-40 Commanding Officer. “The Fighting Marlin Team provided critical and timely information to the 5th Fleet and CENTCOM commanders, on a daily basis.”

Recycling Services Changes at NAS Whidbey Island Base recycling services at NAS Whidbey Island will be curtailed from Saturday, July 6, through Monday, Sept. 30 due to impending civilian furloughs. The base Recycling Center asks all patrons to plan accordingly. From July 6 through Sept. 30 the following changes will go into effect. Recycling Center Operations, Bldg 2555: • Closed on Saturday for drop-off • Open Monday thru Friday 0730 to 1600 for drop-off Recycle Collection Services: • Recycling Collection services will be provided on Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursdays • Recycling Collection services will not occur on Mondays and Fridays Additional services the Recycling Center has provided in the past may be curtailed and/ or delayed. The Recycling Center regrets any inconvenience this may cause. For more information call: (360)257-5481

“We will no longer offer boat slip rentals, or hourly boat rentals,” Short said. “However, trailerable fishing and sailing boats will still be available through Outdoor Gear Rental at our current location, and at the Convergence Zone once the move is complete.” In order to make RV trailer rentals more accessible to Sailors living on the air station MWR will start processing all RV trailer rentals through the new Cliffside RV Park office located on Cliffside Park Drive aboard Ault Field starting July 8. MWR will continue to accept Cliffside RV Park reservations at the current location until July 8 when the service moves to the park. Cliffside Park’s hours of operations will be open seven days a week from 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. They can be reached at (360) 257-2649. Short said co-locating all programs at Ault Field also increases efficiency and flexibility, “The bundling of programs is an Enterprise wise initiative that expands and enhances the delivery of recreation services,” he said. “It’s a more effective way to provide MWR service benefits to our active duty Sailors and their families.” For more information, please contact Mr. Short at (360) 257-5071.

Traffic Impacts at Seaplane Base Starting in early July, construction of a new fuel pipeline will impact traffic on Seaplane Base. From July 1 - 3, people should expect intermittent delays along Torpedo Road from Pioneer to Torpedo Gate. From July 8 - 12, roadwork will temporarily close Coral Sea Drive from Tulagi Ave., north to Torpedo Road. Traffic detours will be through the Navy Exchange and Commissary parking areas.

Celebrate America 2013 The skies over Holmes Harbor will light up with bursts of color on July 3 as the South Whidbey community once again gathers for Celebrate America, a free non-profit event completely funded by donations from individuals and businesses in the community and organized by the staff and volunteers from South Whidbey Assembly of God. In its nineteenth year, Celebrate America has grown into a half-day festival at Freeland park including a selection of local cuisine, live music, children’s shows and games, and patriotic inspiration culminating in a spectacular fireworks show over the harbor. The idea of Matt Chambers, pastor of South Whidbey Assembly of God, Celebrate America was conceived as a way to remember God’s place in American history. The goal is to provide a family-friendly event where freedom and pride in our country can be celebrated by the South Whidbey community. The day begins this year at 2:00pm with the opening of the inflatable toys for kids. Food vendors open for business at 4:00pm, and the roads around Freeland Park are closed at 4:30pm. At this time the shuttle also begins running from the Freeland Park-and-Ride and the Island Transit bus stop in front of Payless. This year’s entertainment kicks off at 6:00pm with Maggie’s Fury, followed by The Reptile Man and Crossing. The fantastic fireworks show over Holmes Harbor set to patriotic music tops off the evening around 10:20pm. The display is put on by Western Display Fireworks, a company who also provides fireworks for the Sounders and Seahawks. Gather the family, lawn chairs and a blanket and head to Freeland Park on July 3 to enjoy food, an evening of wholesome entertainment and a great fireworks show. For more information or to make a donation to help with the funding of this year’s event, call (360)221-1656 or visit www.swag-online.org. [Submitted by Dareld Chittim]

Celebrate Independence Day With a Pie Bake-off Calling all bakers. The Oak Harbor Chamber of Commerce, in conjunction with the Oak Harbor Downtown Merchants Association, is holding the first ever 4th OH July Apple Pie Bake-off during the upcoming Fourth of July activities. “What could be more all-American than an apple pie baking contest? We thought it would be a fun addition to all the activities going on along Pioneer Way this year,” said Kathy Reed, executive director of the Oak Harbor Chamber of Commerce. There is no cost to enter the contest and bakers – individuals or groups – are allowed to enter up to two pies in the bake-off. Pies must be completely homemade and must be submitted in a disposable tin pan. Recipes must accompany all pies entered. Pies should be dropped off at the marked tent on Pioneer Way between 10:00am and 1:00pm on July 4. Judging will begin shortly after 1:00pm and winners will be announced at approximately 1:30pm. First, second and third place winners will be awarded gift certificates from Applebee’s, the contest sponsor. The pies will be judged on the following criteria: appearance, crust, filling and overall taste. “After the winners have been announced, the pies will be sliced and available for people to buy for a donation,” Reed said. “All proceeds from the bake-off will benefit North Whidbey Help House.” The bake-off is just one of several events taking place on Pioneer Way and Windjammer Park for the Chamber’s Old Fashioned 4th OH July celebration. There will be vendors at both locations this year, and Windjammer Park will be home to the carnival plus live music from local band Jacob’s Road from 6:00pm to 10:00pm at the gazebo. The traditional fireworks will light up the sky around 10:30pm or as soon as it’s dark enough. “The Downtown Merchants would like to wish everyone a Happy 4th of July,” said DMA president Margaret Livermore. “We would like to invite you to the Historic Downtown to enjoy the festivities scheduled on Pioneer Way.” Events on Pioneer Way will include a patriotic pet parade at 2:00pm, vendors, entertainment throughout the day, fun games and activities, a display of several “pretty” cars for enthusiasts to enjoy and much, much more for the whole family. Entry forms for the bake-off and the pet parade are available at the Oak Harbor Chamber of Commerce on 32630 State Route 20 and at participating downtown merchants. Entry forms for the bake-off can be returned to the Chamber by July 3, or simply turned in with the pie on July 4. Call (360)675-3755 for information.

Tickets on Sale for Whidbey Children’s Theater’s Production of The Wizard of Oz Tickets are now on sale for the Whidbey Children’s Theater production of The Wizard of Oz. The show opens June 28 and closes July 14. This classic tale tells of Dorothy from Kansas who is transported to the magical Land of Oz after a tornado hits her home. While in the Land of Oz, Dorothy meets many new friends including a Scarecrow, Tinman, and a Cowardly Lion. These new friends journey with her to meet the Wizard of Oz to ask for a brain, a heart, courage, and a way home. Along the way they meet all kinds of fantastical people and creatures, including a good witch, a bad witch, munchkins, and even flying monkeys! Director Bekah Zachritz hails from Kansas herself. Since arriving on Whidbey Island last summer Bekah has worked with Whidbey Children’s Theater in a variety of capacities. From teaching drama to choreographing The Little Prince to performing for WCT’s latest fundraiser, Bekah has been wonderful addition to the Whidbey Children’s Theater family. “This work is really nourishing for me,” Zachritz says, “It’s felt good to step into that role and feel at home with the children, to know that I could help them create something really beautiful that they can feel proud of.” Zachritz is excited to have two of her closest friends from Kansas working with her on the show as costumer and set designer. Kat and Kris Carlson, local artists and Waldorf teachers, help to make this a really unique and special production. The Wizard of Oz has many scene changes, which has presented a challenge in Whidbey Children’s Theater’s black box theater. Born of the constraints of this small space, Zachritz and Kris Carlson created an unusual idea for the Oz set. “We are using the medium of chalkboard art to bring a mystical quality to our production. Kris will design the backdrop and teach the actors how to draw it throughout the performance. The actors will then illustrate the scenes with chalkboard art as they are happening.” “I think stories can be told anywhere and that theater can be done anywhere.” Says Zachritz, “Focusing on telling the story is a great place to put our energy. The idea of having art involved in this production was born of the idea of creating magic through simplicity.” So, follow the yellow brick road to Whidbey Children’s Theater for this fun and unique telling of The Wizard of Oz!

Puget Sound Seabird Survey Call for Volunteers Whidbey Audubon Society will join Seattle Audubon this year to participate in the Puget Sound Seabird Survey (PSSS). Both Audubon chapters need citizen science volunteers for monthly bird surveys on Whidbey Island. The surveys take place on the first Saturday of each month and last for 30 minutes. The first survey is scheduled for July 6. Each survey site has at least two trained volunteers to help gather data on seabird populations. PSSS volunteers must be confident in their ability to identify seabirds. There are seven monitoring sites on Whidbey Island: Deception Pass State Park, Moran Beach, Joseph Whidbey State Park, West Beach, West Hastie Lake Road, Libby Beach County Park and Fort Casey State Park. A training session will be scheduled on Whidbey Island in June. For more information you can contact Whidbey Audubon President Ann Casey at cspcoach@aol.com or Seattle Audubon’s Science Manager Toby Ross

at tobyr@seattleaudubon.org or go to www. seattleaudubon.org/sas/WhatWeDo/Science/ CitizenScience.aspx and follow the link to the Puget Sound Seabird Survey. The survey data provides a snapshot of seabird diversity and abundance on more then 2,400 acres of near shore saltwater habitat. This information will aid government agencies in directing appropriate resources in the event of a major spill. Additional training on how to identify and monitor oil in the event of a spill will be provided. [Submitted by Susan Prescott]

Partners for Youth Empowerment (PYE) Holds Its First International Gathering This July, South Whidbey will see an influx of over 80 artists, educators, and youth workers from around the world–all here to attend Partners for Youth Empowerment’s first international gathering of arts/empowerment facilitators. The event called, “Catch the Fire”, will be held at the Whidbey Institute from July 2 through July 7. “We have been working in Uganda, South Africa, India, the UK, and Brazil for the past several years, training people in leading creativity-based transformational programs for youth. It was time for these amazing leaders to meet one another in person, and what better place to do so than on Whidbey Island where this work was birthed in 1996”, says PYE’s Executive Director Charlie Murphy. The work Murphy is referring to began as a program called the Power of Hope: Youth Empowerment through the Arts co-founded by Murphy and Peggy Taylor, both Langley residents. For over 17 years, Power of Hope has provided arts/empowerment programs for teens from diverse cultural and socio-economic backgrounds in Washington State and British Columbia. Through Power of Hope and their more recent International organization PYE, they have trained several thousand educators, youth workers, teaching artists and service professionals in ways to integrate the arts into their work with groups and have reached over 250,000 young people worldwide with life-enhancing programs. The PYE network includes facilitators, educators and change makers from North America, Britain, India, South Africa, Uganda and Brazil who work to ignite the creative power of youth and young adults. At this gathering, people will increase their skills in working with youth and in training others to do the same. The gathering will include interactive group sessions, small group workshops, opportunities to collaborate and learn about different cultures, and the opportunity to network and share ideas and connections. PYE is looking for community members who would like to help host this event. Tasks include: transportation, kitchen volunteering, hosting participants, and donations to cover expenses.

sTiLL TALking By Eileen Brown

The young woman is scared and confused. She worries that the drugstore pregnancy test she took at home could be wrong. Her anxiety builds, but encouragement and assistance can be as close as a small white house on Midway Blvd. in Oak Harbor. Single women and families facing pregnancies have the right to caring support and education when considering their options. The Pregnancy Care Clinic is a safe place for a woman to go to address her specific needs. Chris Lock handles administrative matters for PCC. She said, “The first thing to know is we do not refer for or do abortions and we do not offer contraceptives. Women who come in may receive free pregnancy testing and may qualify for a free ultrasound. We also offer parenting classes for moms and dads.” The advantage of taking these classes is especially appealing because completion of the coursework and homework earns the prospective mothers and dads Boutique Bucks. The Ladies of St. Mary’s Church in Coupeville recently held their yearly Baby Shower for PCC. Donations filling the clothes rack included Onesies, T-shirts and diapers, even handmade baby blankets. PCC’s unique program allows a woman attending parenting classes to earn Boutique Bucks and select brand new items from the boutique with their Boutique Bucks. Imagine, by attending eight classes, one can earn a free car seat or crib. Thirty-one car seats and cribs were given out last year. The men are not forgotten. Tony and Bob are two mentors who help partners of pregnant women “man up” and learn to make choices as a man. As they get to know each other, sometimes through a project such as working on a car, the men will open up about what they want to do with their lives. The program is called “Authentic Manhood.” Sixty-four men attended this class in 2012. A total of 38 volunteers serve as peer counselors, medical professionals, clothing sorters and maintenance workers. This non-profit organization can always use more volunteers, handymen and donations. At its heart, PCC seeks to bring all babies into the world supported by a mother and father who are ready for the job. They are located at 670 SE Midway Blvd., Oak Harbor, call 1-800-675-2096. Pregnancy Care Clinic is a Christian 501(c)(3) organization and accepts no government funding. All donations are tax deductible. I’ll take a shake She’s as American as apple pie, but I can’t quite place the accent. Give up? Well, it’s Vicka Haywood, happily working as chief cook of the Apple-A-Day Cafe in the new Island Drug. Vicka was born in Russia, raised in Israel and calls herself an upbeat, optimistic American citizen. “I came to the States in 1996,” she said. “I enjoy cooking and I love working in the kitchen and out in front with our customers. I treat our customers like family.” Vicka says, “”Come in and meet us for the best food and best service. Vel Dokenn and I have been cooking together for years and we share any success equally.” Hot on the menu is the Hot Rod sandwich with a triple deck of meat, lettuce, tomato and so on, followed closely by the Rockin’ Reuben. Hungry yet? There are several stools at the counter and extra tables with regular chairs will be added now that the popularity of the café is obvious. Martha McAllister worked as a fountain girl in California as a teenager. She impressed

the diners seated around the cafe with her chocolate soda with vanilla ice cream. As the saying goes, “Monkey see, monkey do,” and I find myself slipping into a time travel tunnel with no escape hatch in sight. Hope we have lots of ice cream! The cafe is open Monday through Saturday from 111AM to 5PM, Sundays from 11AM to 2PM. Questions? Call 360-679-3219. Reach for the sky Drivers passed by the June 14 flagpole dedication at Midway and Pioneer in Oak Harbor, eager to start their weekend, but not even noisy engines could drown out the pride felt by those being honored. Steve McCalmont, president of the Oak Harbor Fire Fighters Association, said the flagpole is a symbol of Boy Scouts reaching for a coveted goal, such as when older men help boys through a specific project. Pastor Ron Lawler of Family Bible Church spoke of names on the bricks and pavers, names such as Soptich and Hornsby, placed when the park was first established in 2005 as part of Justin Jansen’s Eagle Scout project. He is the older brother of Josh. Josh’s project was the installation of the flagpole and the addition of five new pavers for recent retirees. Including Josh, a total of 12 Jansens attended, namely Dwayne (Josh’s dad) and Jake (Josh’s older brother), both Oak Harbor POC Firefighters. Another of Josh’s brothers – Jon Jansen – is also an Oak Harbor firefighter, but he was unable to attend because of his annual Army Reserve training. The official name of the site where the new flagpole stands is called the Walk of Honor, so named for the way it links a path to Veterans’ Park and Skagit Valley College. The Walk of Honor terminates at building 13, where the acrylic column designed for the Sentinel Memorial Fountain is located. McCalmont said a great deal of credit is due to the Jansen family, and added praise to others, specifically Corky Bridgeford, Cameron Hopkins, Otto Haffner and Ron Hancock. What to do? I’d love to get away, perhaps catch a jet to Paris, rent a cottage on Martha’s Vineyard or just stay home and stir up some trouble. Actually, the trouble was always there. It just looks like a box of noisy, dangerous illegal fireworks, ready to maim and flame. Those fireworks you buy at the “approved” stands are dangerous, too, but my biggest complaint is the living on edge with noise that makes humans jump and horses, cats and dogs run away. We’ve all heard visitors describe Whidbey Island as heaven on earth. But why do some insist on making it a living hell with illegal fireworks that run on for days before and after July 4? I have stayed quiet on this for some time. You can’t fight City Hall, right? Then as I bought tranquilizers once more for my dog Dilly I realized my freedoms don’t mean as much to you as yours do to me. Don’t tell me to “get a life” – all I want is the peace I earned as I enter life’s so-called Golden Years. Many people opposed to overly long days authorized for fireworks use are speaking up and it’s about time. Remember that animals think they are being shot at and will refuse to go out to pee where the shooting goes on and on. Remember also the elderly and those recovering from surgery. They too have rights, just as you do, to enjoy their labor in a home with peace and quiet. Let’s be civilized and use our freedoms wisely. Otherwise we’ll revert to knuckle-dragging cave dwellers. Then I will move to Paris.

On Track with Jim Freeman

Summer kudos to the Island County Road Department for sprucing up Newman Road so nicely each and every year. Long about Fair time, the big, blue New Holland mowers show up to remove all that growth from spring. Too bad we don’t have county giraffes to eat some of the stuff the big blue machines cannot reach. For many years, my buddy Paul Evans would mow Newman. Now I get it, Paul mows Newman. Paul’s dad, Richard, knew Paul Newman. Paul Evans always had time to stop his machine long enough to tell me a quick joke, with that deadpan delivery he shares with comic greats Jackie Vernon and Steven Wright. Yesterday, I stopped my little blue truck in the middle of the street, like we long-time locals love to do, to thank big blue operator Brian Doherty for his excellent work on behalf of the county’s big, blue wrecking crew. Many of us middle-aged, old timers remember Brian first as an excellent investigative reporter for the South Whidbey Record, back in the early 80s’, when their office was a pentagon shaped building in Langley, and international travel blogger Sue Frause worked the front desk, and Stacie Burqua, our community’s stellar executive director of Whidbey Island Center for the Arts, was the advertising department, from sales to design to lay-out to Wally Funk and John Webber, the owners. Jim Larsen was the editor, Lorinda Kay, the eagleeyed photographer, with the Island County Fair’s go-to-girl, Sandey Brandon, writing perfectly punctuated prose for press releases and obituaries. Where did the time go? Thirty years later, we are all still here, cutting, pasting and mowing. As my buddy Skeeter always reminded me, usually in public places after he had recited the Preamble to our Constitution, “Ace, life is like a roll of toilet paper, the closer you get to the end, the faster it goes.” By the way, the end is no where in sight for any of us. Yahoo just picked White Cloud 3-ply as the best toilet paper going. Why was this not mentioned on the CBS Evening News with Scott Pelley? After all, was he not named after White Cloud’s rival tissue?

South End Hideaways Thanks ever so much to Cheryl and Lori of the historic Holmes Harbor Rod ‘n Gun Club for allowing me to be the guest of Frannie Johnson recently. Even manager John Lurch waved my normal signing of a personal release form so I could enjoy a sizeable 12-16 ounce hunk of area beef, cooked medium rare, with perfection, and with A-1 on the side, just to offend the cook and the other guests. Knowing my inability to sequence properly, Lori Brown gave me directions about how to prepare our to-go peach cobblers, packaged in Ziplocs, and then wrapped in a renewable, recyclable, compostable white paper sack containing a minimum of 20% post-consumer material. Sure glad the to-go bag was not more specific about post-consumer material. Celebrity sightings at the Rod n’ Gun include bouncer Ronnie Brown, Bill and Susanne Paulson of The Maine Stay, back from their tour of some exotic locale, as well as the lovely and talented, long-time local and retired weed eater, Flo Hahn. We did spot Chef Sally Berry long enough to razz her about the leafy substance she was carrying around the bar. Having been trained in undercover work during the Marines, I was able to notice a “furtive gesture” by two women in the corner, most likely evidencing an act of personal freedom between Sally Berry and Frannie Johnson. I know there was a lot of giggling going on. Upon investigation, after the big Rod ‘n Gun TV was turned on so I could see the corner of the bar, we discovered Sally was gifting a recent harvest of her Sunlight Beach grown, red-leaf lettuce to Frannie, who apparently lives on the wrong side of the island for a big leafy red. Nothing like razzing a Berry while enjoying a night on the town.

Postal Assistance Another joy of shopping and hopping locally is our area post offices. From stem to stern, port and starboard, our area postal people are perhaps the most tolerant of all government employees.

Locally operated. now because you are in a period that demands introversion and introspection. Your struggle is internal and filled with compulsions, finding a friend being only one example. You are also discontent with the old and familiar, which is making fertile territory for uncontrollable changes that upset the status quo of your being. Simply put, you are dissatisfied with life and trying to break free of it.

Not only do they have to put up with folks like me, they have to put up with Gordy Coale every afternoon, when he comes in with his international mailings to all continents. Gordy creates, makes and sells camera straps and leather thingees of the durable kind. Hand made, and local, by his dedicated crew of blood related, bicycling bipeds. Check out his web site, www.gordyscamerastraps. com, whether you have a camera or not. Gordy is very good at that web site stuff also. Gordy was my first web guru and used to monitor my web site before we realized the only traffic I had was angry creditors. Over the years, at the Freeland Post Office, we have been blessed with great clerks and postmasters. Kathy and Ann, still racing in and around the building, have survived the many changes, not only of addresses, but personnel. Thanks much to Kathy for saving me the recent news clipping describing the rescue of a 100 pound bear back in Jamison City, Pennsylvania. Her North Dakota common sense knew my former 16301 zip code mind could relate to a good 18929 zip code story. Seems the bear got his head stuck in a plastic jar, previously filled with cooking oil. After eleven days of wandering by the bear, four young men from the community used a rope and a flashlight to chase the bear into and out of a swimming pool, finally freeing him from the jar. Wonder if they will post a sign on that pool that says “No swimming bear.” Wonder if that is why we Marines are sometimes called jarheads? Bet it wasn’t cooking oil. Food for thought, as we thank our postal people for their postal tolerance. In fact, shall we all send our holiday cards out now to give our friends and family six months notice?

Ben Stein Rides the Internet “Fathom the hypocrisy of a government that requires every citizen to prove they are insured… but not everyone must prove they are a citizen. And now, any of those who refuse, or are unable, to prove they are citizens will receive free insurance paid for by those who are forced to buy insurance because they are citizens.” Ain’t nothing gentle about this Ben. Wonder if Ben plays a Steinway.

End of the Fiscal Year Parties Are you going to any? Me neither. Must be because June 30th, the last day of the accounting method using the fiscal year approach, falls on a Sunday this year.

You have the necessary strength to handle your situation in a way that will advance your perspectives. You are learning to see the world differently at a time when new ways of seeing are urgently needed.

Chicken Little And the Astrologer By Wesley Hallock

This is the column dedicated to your inner Chicken Little. You know, the over-heated fear that crushes you awake at precisely 3:33 AM, the time you are most vulnerable to its worrisome scenarios of looming disaster. Chicken Little, we salute you. Your nightly cries of, “The Sky is Falling!” are truly just calls for knowledge and healing. Here, we bring your cries to light, for the final stage of healing is laughter. Astrologer’s Note: This week, in a strange twist, the tables have turned. In place of the usual ‘the-sky-is-falling’ letter giving voice to someone’s inner Chicken Little, we have the opposite: a worried reader keeping her Chicken Little awake nights. A one-step-removed perspective, as in the song, Just Dropped In (To See What Condition My Condition Was In). The ever-dutiful astrologer plays his usual role. * * * To Chicken Little,  I write a column for a weekly paper and the paper features an astrology columnist. I am intrigued by that and hope he can help me find someone special. Can you tell me which takes precedence? My health or my happiness? If I have no time for routine things now, how will I find time for a new friend? Am I just playing at this and actually afraid to reach out? I would like to learn more about astrology and believe the forces in nature affect how we act. Beyond that, I am uneducated about moon phases and wouldn’t put down something I know nothing about.

Nothing like an End-of-the-Fiscal Year Party to get everyone down and physical.

So what’ll it be? Does it look like I will meet someone and find friendship and love? And how long will it take?

Maybe next time.

“She’s Still Talking”

Caboose Musings Years ago, when life was more fun than struggle, I had a business card with my name in the middle and directly underneath, in small letters where one’s impressive title goes, was: a musing person.

Dear “Still Talking”

No one ever laughed when I gave them my card. They just stared at it. Looking back, I guess my limited edition biz card was working. It was just me that wasn’t getting any.

Critter Ears Were I a budding entrepreneur, at the ready to be spindled, folded, and possibly mutilated on Shark Tank, I would suggest a business offering dog, cat and cow ear plugs. I think the bunnies are okay given how slow they seem to be finding carrots in the dark. The next few days of explosive celebration are a true test of critter democracy and freedom from extreme decibel expression. Rather than drug your pet, get them some ear muffs, or wrap their ears in R-32 insulation type sound proofing. If the cows don’t come home, at least you will know it is because, due to your protective nature, they could not hear you yelling. Have a safe and sensible 4th. That being said, I will most likely be watching all five Bruce Willis Die Hard movies, with my headphones on. Hasta la vista, noisy combustibles.

Someone (Jim DeWitt?) said that time is nature’s way of preventing everything from happening at once. Thus we have clocks to make sure that your breakfast latte comes before your dinner dumplings and calendars to insure that the summer visit by Aunt Madeline and Billy Bob and their six kids occurs only once a year. Great. But clocks and calendars alone are inadequate to answer life’s deeper questions. No one, for example, can say which came first, Chicken Little or the egg. No one, that is, except a competent astrologer working with accurate birth data. Astrology is the tool par excellence for answering life’s deeper questions. Astrology is the mathematical bootstrap that elevates Pythagoras’s music of the spheres beyond poetry and philosophy to the level of science. Astrology has the answer to the Chicago song, Does Anybody Really Know What Time It Is?  And so to the point. When you ask, which takes precedence, your health or your happiness, the astrological answer is health, definitely health. You are in a period of growth-by-crisis that began in early 2011 and runs to the end of 2017. The months from August to present have been particularly challenging.  A sort of cosmic alarm has rung for you, calling for you to revisit your deeply held convictions that life is primarily about struggle. Your tendency is naturally toward privacy and introversion, and those traits are accentuated

This does not mean you cannot also find friendship. This is a time when you are drawn to find others who live and think much deeper than surface appearances. I see two windows of opportunity for you to find such a person. One was in May just past. A connection begun then may deepen for you as you become willing to expose more of yourself. The other window comes after your next birthday. You will make a contact that will develop slowly over the course of 2014, which means that it’s possible you will not recognize it for what it is at first.  You do recognize that you are, as you said, afraid to reach out. This, in part, is because you have Scorpio rising, a sign that values privacy and secrecy above all else. When you do open, it is slowly and always with yourself in control. These old issues of fear and control are the focus of the inner struggle I mentioned above. You are learning trust. The stage is set for you to make rapid advances in this area of your life.  Part of your reluctance to reach out now is because in doing so previously, you’ve often gotten yourself into situations you regretted and which cost you in some way. Do not be hard on yourself about those times. They were necessary to your life path, as a way of gaining understanding. Your Moon sign is Chitra, which translates as brilliant, bright or beautiful. Yours is the Moon of attractiveness and refinement, and those terms should describe you well. Beneath the refinement runs an intense, fiery nature, which comes out quite unexpectedly in the form of confrontation when triggered by another’s foolish action or statement. In that moment, you are quite unafraid of speaking out.  Your ideal friend must also be a willing sparring partner with whom you can work out ideas and attitudes. You are a worthy opponent, which automatically eliminates many potential prospects. The animal symbol of your Chitra Moon is the female tiger, suggesting that you are receptive to others’ input only on your own terms. All else you are quite able to firmly reject. This is not a bad way to be. The world needs more people like you, who will stand for what is right and not back down.  This is a time in your life when you naturally fall into despair and berate yourself for imagined inadequacies and past mistakes. Things will look much rosier in a couple of years when Saturn leaves your Scorpio rising sign to move into Sagittarius. The past five years have weighed heavily on your spirit, due to transiting Saturn. You probably feel as a desert nomad would, exhausted and wandering in search of an oasis where you may rest and recover from your trek over a landscape parched and barren.  The many barriers that have seemed to block you from achieving your desires are already beginning to weaken. As 2015 proceeds from spring into summer, so will the seasons of your life change. 2015 sounds far away, to one as you, in the midst of monumental internal reconstruction. All must make the journey, however, and the rewards of self-knowing and personal wisdom the path brings are invariably worth the price.  Late at night, when the sky seems to be falling, remember that darkness is but the illusion of the unopened eye, and troubles, reminders of how to see. * * * What are you waiting for? No question or comment is too wild or wacky. Include your date and place of birth and, for a very specific answer, the all-important TIME of birth as listed on your birth certificate. Send it to Wesley at whallock@gmail.com. It’s fun and it’s free.

WHIDBEY PIES AND CAFÉ

white bean soup. The quiche of the day was a spinach, caramelized onion and feta. Savory chicken Dijon and vegetarian pot pies were available, as were a variety of organic salads and sandwiches.

ARTISAN PIES REFLECTING “THE ART OF PIE”

My partner went for the chicken Dijon pot pie, which he had opted for and enjoyed on other occasions. This was served along side a spring mixed green salad anointed with a balsamic vinaigrette. I selected the seafood chowder and a slice of the quiche, which also came with a green salad.

By Helen Bates Whoever said, “Life’s short, so let’s eat our dessert first,” must have eaten at the Whidbey Pies Café. Located in the bright red building that is the heart of Greenbank Farm, the small forty-seat café is dwarfed by its reputation. It has been written up in a number of publications and has been called one of the five best places to eat pie in the West. This did not happen overnight. Since 1986, founder Jan Gunn and her culinary team have been perfecting their artistic and succulent hand-made pastries. As their website states, “they have devoted themselves to the art of pie.” Situated on the grounds of what was once considered the largest loganberry farm in the world, it is no wonder that the first pies baked there were loganberry pies. They are still made there, along with boysenberry, Marionberry and triple berry pies. Other favorites include apple, peach, and rhubarb. A few different types are offered on a seasonal basis. Apple Cranberry Walnut Crunch is available Thanksgiving through New Year‘s. Pecan and pumpkin pies are also only available in November and December. Strawberryrhubarb and a new flavor, Salted Caramel Apple are the featured pies at this time. It should be noted that the flaky, golden crusts of all these pies are made with healthy coconut oil. This is in keeping with the company’s desire to be a good servant to its customers, as well as to the land. As all good Whidbey Islanders, they use local produce and products whenever possible. But Whidbey Pies has expanded from offering only dessert pies. Today they also turn out different varieties of savory pies, such as chicken, turkey, beef and vegetable, as well as turnovers and galettes. The devoted baking team that produces all of these delicacies deserves special mention. Every week in a pie kitchen located next door to the café, these bakers bake up to eight hundred pies during marathon ten hour baking sessions. These are, truly, the artisans whose love of baking is expressed in each and every pie they produce. The rest of the team is made up of the servers and cooks at the nearby café. The farm-like bistro is open seven days a week, but no matter when you show up, these dedicated people extend a warm welcome that only adds to the rural ambiance of the place. Recently we went to the restaurant for an early Saturday lunch. When we arrived just after noon, there were still several tables available. Within thirty minutes all the tables were packed. Latecomers chose to sit outside in the cool air or to come back later. There is no doubt that this is a popular place. There is also no doubt that the two servers, busboy and cooks were used to serving a full house. Servers Kathy and Andrea complemented each other’s service inter-mixing their duties. The young busboy, Oliver, was a joy to watch. He cleared and re-set the tables as people left, delivered take-out food, and collected bills without once being told what to do. The entire crew worked rapidly and efficiently like a well-oiled machine. Once we were seated, Kathy brought over two empty glasses, along with a big bottle of chilled water. The menus were already on the table. The specials of the day were listed on a small chalkboard attached to the front wall. We were in business. Besides all the tasty and mouth-watering menu items, the daily specials included: ginger veggie soba (buckwheat noodle) soup; seafood chowder; and pancetta and

As were eating our entrees, Kathy brought over a basket of toasted “Screaming Banshee white bread” accompanied by a dish of olive oil and balsamic vinegar. It went well with my chowder, which turned out to be a thick, complex ragout made up of cod, clams, shrimp and scallops paired with carrots, red potatoes, onions and celery. Had I known the chowder would be so filling, I would have passed on the quiche. Needless to say, I had to put some of my chowder aside in order to finish my quiche. But it would have been a sacrilege not to have a piece of pie! So, both my partner and I “forced” ourselves to order dessert. His was the strawberry-rhubarb ala mode. Mine was the new Salted Caramel Apple Pie, of course, ala mode. I found the salt did not detract from the sweetness of the apple. It only seemed to add just the right amount of tartness. I would order it again in a heartbeat. The entire meal was delicious and addictive. The service was great. We both left sated and I was happy in the knowledge that I had completed my mission. There was even something historical about the visit. Besides the daily luncheons, the cafe offers special “Weekend Breakfast” menus each Saturday from 9:00am to 11:30am. Also, each month a special prix fixe “First Friday Dinner “ is offered that varies with the month. It offers both vegan and non-vegan selections. In June the price of the meal was $24.95 for the nonvegan. The vegan meal is slightly less. Please check their website listed below for the current offerings and prices. There is always a full wine and beverage list available. In the space of this column, it is impossible to do the Whidbey Pies and Café justice. Besides baking for the café, the pie company also produces pies to sell wholesale, as well as at various outlets around the area. They can be purchased at the Metropolitan Markets in Seattle and Tacoma. Closer to the readers of this paper, pies can be found at the Goose Community Grocer in Bayview Corner, at Anchor Books and Coffee in Clinton, and at Three Sisters Market and Local Grown in Coupeville. They are also available for purchase at the Whidbey Pies Café. The company is also available for catering and takes pride in its outstanding food and reputation. For more information on this service or for updates on current happenings and menus, please visit their website at: www.whidbeypies.com. They can also be reached at (360)678-1288 for the café or (360)678-3474 for wholesale pies. The restaurant is located at 765 Wonn Road in Greenbank, across the highway and not far from the old Greenbank Store. Hours are Monday through Friday, 11:00am to 4:00pm; Saturday and Sunday, 10:00am to 5:00pm. (See above for special Saturday “Weekend Breakfast” hours). Reservations are not needed, but are recommended if you wish to ensure a seat or if you plan to bring a large group. Parking is never a problem at the farm. Our Rating: **** • Price: $$ ***** = Love it, will go as often as possible! **** = One of our go-to places. *** = An okay place maybe lacking in some area. ** = If it’s the only place open! * = No way would we return! $$$$ = $25 and over $$$ = $15 to $25 $$ = $10 to $15 $ = Under $10
