Join a Women’s Choir This Fall

On behalf of South Whidbey Parks & Recreation District, and the athletes who participate in the Whidbey Island Triathlon, I would like to take this opportunity to thank all of the wonderful volunteers who generously gave their time and energy to help make the 17th annual Triathlon a success. The event was held on Saturday, August 3, and had over 100 volunteers supporting nearly 300 participants. That’s right, you heard me, a 1:3 ratio. 100+ volunteers who gave 3 to 40 hours of their time to help out. There is no way that an event of this type can be successful without the support of the community and our volunteers. I would like to thank this year’s volunteer Triathlon Committee members: Bob Dalton, Curt Gordon, Kurt Johnson, Krista Loercher, Frazer Mann, Wayne Nehrlich, Peter Oakley, Tom Rowland, and Bob Thome, for all of their work in planning, guidance, and assistance during the event. Thanks also to key organizers: Chris William, Terry Permenter, Randy Heston, Bo Miller, Robert May, Brandon Henry, Lance Landquist, Jim Lautenbach... I wish I could list each and every helper. I would also like to thank all of the organizations and sponsors that provided support, volunteers, and supplies for the event: Half Link Bicycle Shop; Useless Bay Coffee Co.; Island Athletic Club; Useless Bay Animal Clinic; Island Asphalt; PROBAR; Payless Foods; EMS of Whidbey General; Road ID; Frontier Building Supply; Hanson’s Building Supply; Whidbey Goldwing Association; City of Langley; Island County Public Works for providing safety equipment and sweeping the bicycle course; Island County Sheriff’s Department; Whidbey General and Emergency Medical Services; Whidbey Island HAM Radio Operators for supplying communications; Wetsuitrental.com; South Whidbey Parks & Recreation District Staff. An event of this type is a tremendous team effort that requires the involvement of staff, volunteers AND the community. I hear over and over again from our race participants that our community is such a beautiful and friendly place to race, what great volunteers we have, and what a great event we offer. My deepest thanks to South Whidbey for embracing and continuing to support the Whidbey Island Triathlon. Carrie Monforte, Program Coordinator South Whidbey Parks & Recreation District

Whidbey Playhouse Presents The Last Five Years The Whidbey Playhouse is proud to present a limited off-season engagement of The Last Five Years, the blockbuster musical by Jason Robert Brown. Inspired by Brown’s own failed marriage, The Last Five Years explores the relationship between Jamie, a rising novelist, and Cathy, a struggling actress, through a unique form of storytelling: Cathy’s story is told in reverse chronological order (we meet Cathy at the end of the couple’s marriage and move backward with her through time), and Jamie’s is told in chronological order (starting just after the couple first meet). The character’s timelines intersect in the middle of their quest for answers, closure and redemption. Jason Robert Brown is known for his intricate musical arrangements and unique presentation

Larsen Helps Secure Federal Funding to Protect Puget Sound Killer Whales Rep. Rick Larsen, WA-02, last week announced that the federal government will spend more than $900,000 to protect Southern Resident Killer whales in the Puget Sound. Larsen actively supported the Washington State Department of Fish and Wildlife’s application for the grant, including by sending a letter of support to the National Oceanographic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA) in June. “Southern Resident Killer Whales are an inseparable part of the Puget Sound’s cultural, economic and ecological makeup,” Larsen said. “This grant will put a cop on the beat to protect these endangered whales as they continue their recovery.” The $924,961 federal grant will be combined with more than $300,000 in state funds to enforce NOAA rules to protect the endangered whales issued in 2011. The funding will go in part to hiring an enforcement officer to conduct regular Killer Whale protection patrols

David’s Scouting experience started in Libby, Montana in 1975 as a Cub Scout in Pack 25 where he went on to earn the Arrow of Light. As a Boy Scout he earned the world conservation award, religious award, 50 miler award, Order of the Arrow brotherhood (1st brotherhood member in Lincoln County in over 30 years), 58 merit badges, and the rank of Eagle Scout with 7 palms. He also served on the Montana Scout Camp staff for 3 years as a merit badge counselor and site commissioner. After graduating from High School he joined the U.S. Army and served as a truck driver and recon sergeant at Ft. Sill, Babenhausen/ Germany and Ft. Lewis. His most interesting military assignments were guarding nuclear weapons in Germany and fighting forest fires in Oregon where he earned the Humanitarian Service Medal. After 4 years in the military he returned to Libby, Montana and became the Scoutmaster of Troop 71 for a year and designed his first Scout patch (1990 Hands Across the Border) before starting college at Washington State University. After meeting his future wife and graduating with two degrees with honors in Architecture, he and Michelle moved to Las Vegas to work as a licensed Architect for 5 years before applying to graduate school. While attending Penn and Princeton to study architectural theory and urban design, he made a visit to the 2001 National Jamboree at Fort AP Hill, VA. They moved back to the Pacific Northwest, Issaquah, WA on 9/11/01 (the day the World Trade Center was hit by two planes) to work for Callison in Seattle. They had been in the World Trade Center just 5 months earlier during a trip to New York City. Nine months later they moved to Monroe, WA to buy a house. In 2004 David came back into Scouting as a Klahaya District leader serving as Unit Commissioner, Assistant District Commissioner, District Commissioner, District Roundtable Commissioner, District Committee Member, Eagle Board Member, District/Council Hornaday Awards Chair, Seattle Historic Trail Advisor, District Advancement Committee Member, District Activities and Civic Service Chair, University of Scouting/Program and Training Conference instructor, Woodbadge instructor and BSA patch and pin designer over the past 9 years.

Cascade River Road Wash-Out Thunderstorms moved through the western part of North Cascades National Park during the afternoon and early evening of Sunday, August 11, 2013 dumping heavy rain within a short period of time. This caused the Cascade River Road to wash out at its junction with Boston Creek, stranding approximately 25-35 vehicles parked at the Cascade Pass Trailhead 11⁄2 miles above the washout. Sixty-five stranded people stayed the night in their vehicles. National Park Service employees are on site assisting those stranded by the wash-out. The wash-out is estimated to be approximately 15 feet deep and 40-60 feet wide. Plans have been developed to build a temporary one-lane road to allow stranded vehicles to leave the area as soon as possible. The National Park Service has made contact with friends and family members of the stranded hikers to inform them of the situation. Cascade Pass is one of the most popular destination hikes in North Cascades National Park. The trailhead is located approximately 23 miles from the junction of the Cascade River Road and Highway 20. The Cascade River Road is closed to the public at the park boundary at milepost 18 until further notice. For information on alternative hikes in the park, please call the Wilderness Information Center at (360)854-7245. [Submitted by Ken Hires, North Cascades National Park Complex]

Rep. Hayes Named to Legislative Veterans’ Committee and Marine Resources Council

State Department of Veterans Affairs and the military department. “I’m honored to serve on this committee,” said Hayes, a veteran of the United States Navy. “We have a substantial number of active military personnel and veterans in our district, all of whom deserve our respect and appreciation. Our service men and women have made major sacrifices to serve our country. I’m proud to be a voice for them on this committee.” Hayes’ 10th Legislative District includes Naval Air Station Whidbey Island near Oak Harbor. Many constituents also commute to work at Naval Station Everett, just south of the 10th District. During the 2013 session, Hayes sponsored several veterans-related bills, including expansion of Gold Star license plates for certain family members of veterans killed in action, and designating Interstate 5 in Washington as the “Purple Heart Trail” in honor of those killed or wounded in action. The lawmaker will also serve on the Washington Marine Resources Protection Council. Among other things, the council will work with the University of Washington and others to conduct analysis on the effects and sources of ocean acidification. “The 10th District is partially made up of several islands and has a large amount of coastline and marine resources. It’s important we learn more about the issues surrounding ocean acidification to protect aquaculture and our shellfish industry, not only in the 10th District, but throughout the coastal region of Washington,” said Hayes. “We need to base actions on solid scientific evidence and ensure a balance is reached which would not impose undue hardships on our small businesses, agriculture and local communities. I hope to provide a voice of reason on this council.” The council was created during the 2013 session under Senate Bill 5603. It is charged with meeting at least twice a year, beginning after November 1, 2013, and reporting its findings to the Legislature. The council expires June 30, 2017. Hayes is serving his first term of office. In addition to these new appointments, he serves on the House Public Safety Committee as assistant ranking Republican, as well as the Education and Transportation committees.

State Rep. Dave Hayes has been tabbed to serve on the Legislature’s Joint Committee on Veterans’ and Military Affairs and the Washington Marine Resources Protection Council. Hayes received word last week of his new appointments from House Speaker Frank Chopp.

For more information about Rep. Hayes, visit www.houserepublicans.wa.gov/hayes.

“I’m grateful for the speaker’s confidence in the perspectives I bring to the table regarding veterans’ issues, and future use and protection of our state’s coastal resources,” said Hayes, R-Camano Island.

stiLL tALking By Eileen Brown

Love itself doesn’t mean two people will be together next year, or even next month. Neither does love mean one must marry. The act of marriage tells us two people are motivated to become half of a partnership. They are full of hope. They will need it.

If married people live happier and longer as “studies” claim they do, let’s find out why. I suspect the “happy” one must be the partner who gets the whole enchilada: public declaration, vows and rings, the one who thinks commitment is a contract with the CD club, nothing more. Single people may look back and agree they are happier without an unreasonable mate. Great guys and wonderful women are not automatically marriage material. If you are getting married, don’t count on a pre-nuptial agreement to show your undying affection. Throw off those emotional shackles and you will find what’s right in front of you. The only promise you need to make to your beloved is to be kind. That’s it. Be kind. We perform countless acts of kindness to strangers without thinking first of getting something back and that is how we must design our give and take in marriage. After years of such kindness given happily and freely to each other, a couple may wish to review their success. In the case of “sickness and health,” as well as “to forsake all others,” they avoided the trap doors of relationships by being kind. A kind man or woman would never leave one who is ill or tempt fate with a dalliance. Marriage? Proceed only if your motives are pure. That doesn’t make one a saint but it keeps you honest and you could get a nice deposit in your karma bank. You also avoid the embarrassment of telling friends and family you screwed up your vows. So there you have it. Be kind. Get over yourself and be kind. People will think you have gone crazy. Tell them you have. Tell them you are crazy about your wife (or husband). Watch their faces drop. One day, quite unannounced, the bloom may fade from the rose. Here’s where your years of being kind come in. It’s a steep walk to the mountain top but you reach it and ask a couple together for 49 years, “What’s your secret?” You guessed it. Be kind today, tomorrow and 10 years from now. That’s a vow you can live with. Hot and getting hotter As a freckle-faced teenager, I was told ladies don’t sweat, they glow. On a hot day, actually too hot to be outside, I look in the mirror to watch a river of perspiration run down my head to be caught temporarily in my ear. Not ladylike at all. It doesn’t take much exertion either. Some of us are just more sensitive to heat and would rather sit in a dark room with three or four fans running than go out back and pick strawberries. Heat stroke on temperate Whidbey Island? It can happen with the right factors put together. We all know to never, never leave children or pets alone in enclosed vehicles. Even if you don’t feel thirsty, stay hydrated by drinking plenty of fluids. Just avoid caffeine or alcohol. Small meals are best, eaten more often. Wear loose-fitting, lightweight, light-colored clothing (dark colors absorb the sun’s rays). If you must work outdoors, take frequent breaks. By all means, reschedule outdoor games and activities. Check on family, friends and neighbors who spend much of their time alone and who may be affected by the heat. Animals can’t tell us, but I bet that horse could use some water and a shady spot. My old dog Dilly and cats Pixie and Rocky spread out like sheepskin rugs when I place a couple of fans on the floor. They live year-round in a warm fur coat and the cool floor must feel good. Thanks, American Red Cross, for these sensible suggestions.

Mr. Rodgers’ neighborhood The husky voice is unmistakable, even at 80. Folks love him and his hometown of Camas, WA will show their appreciation by declaring Sept. 18 Jimmie Rodgers Day. He’s flattered, but oh so modest. How long will he sing? “As long as people want me,” he said in a phone interview on Aug. 9, adding, “I’m healthy.” Rodgers and his wife Mary live in Palm Springs with their four terriers. He attended Vancouver Clark College and spent one summer washing all the school windows. He worked in Orting and was employed by a Japanese farm. “I picked berries and worked three months for $90.” Rodgers says his folks would tie him to a tree when they went fishing, so with nothing else to do, he’d sing to himself all day. He sang in church and school. His mother was a music teacher but Jimmie never had a lesson. “I have perfect pitch,” he said. He also has 23 Gold Records on the walls of his home He said he can’t wait to go out in the audience in the Coupeville Performing Arts Center Sept. 12. “It’s a family show. No four-letter words,” he added. The performance starts at 7PM. General seating is $30; there are no pre-assigned seats. Get yours at http://www.brownpapertickets.com/ event/429029. A superstar of the 1950s and 1960s, Jimmie Rodgers may be best known for his Top 10 hits such as Honeycomb, Kisses Sweeter Than Wine; Oh-oh. I’m Falling in Love Again; It’s Over; Child of Clay and Waltzing Mathilda. Rodgers once had a TV variety show and had his own theatre in Branson, Mo. He makes a point of saying that along the way, he blossomed into a performer, not just a singer. It’s a show you will remember for its nostalgia and humor. His website is http://www.jimmie-rodgers.com A picture of us She’s up there again, painting oversized postcards onto an old family album. Her canvas is the brick wall on the south side of Pioneer Way. Good thing artist Susan Hakala, a muralist from northern California, isn’t afraid of heights. A local company, Diamond Rentals, loaned the lift she uses and regularly checks on its safety. She is painting a mural sponsored by Island Thrift and several individual donors. Bookstore owner Karen Mueller got the project going. Looking out her front door each day, she saw a perfect spot for it across the street, just begging to be painted. She continues to raise money for the project and invites those who like what they see to leave a donation at Wind & Tide Bookstore on Pioneer Way. The mural-in-progress will span several decades and include construction of the Deception Pass Bridge. You may call out a friendly “Hello up there” as you pass, but remember, she is working and cannot wave back. Upscale Resale Just a brief mention of the new location for the Soroptimist’s Upscale Resale Thrift Store, just east of Ace Hardware on Pioneer in Oak Harbor. New additions include children’s and men’s clothing, a lot more in housewares and jewelry, plus high quality women’s clothing for work and evening. If your honey hasn’t taken you anywhere in a long time, wearing a bejeweled dress as you serve dinner could be the hint he needs. There’s a lot of work to be finished at Upscale Resale, such as adding dressing rooms, finish a bit of painting and getting ready for a grand opening. Please support this shop with your donations and purchases. All money raised goes to help women and girls, locally and worldwide, live healthier, safer lives. Oak Harbor Soroptimists give significant scholarships each year to women forging a new start in life through higher education and specialized training. Helping build these scholarships is the job of every member. They hold a gala and auction each fall and it is their biggest fund raiser of the year. Write to me at stilltalking2009@yahoo.com

Locally operated. I may have an unpredictable side to my nature. I may run hot and cold at times due to the influences of the cusp and various other things. You have been telling everyone to wait for 2018. I don’t think that’s going to help me out any. I am not certain you have had the time to really figure out the hitch in my get along. I get emotionally charged thinking about all the things I have done to try to rise above each and every element I have been rubbed raw on.

Chicken Little And the Astrologer By Wesley Hallock Dear Astrologer The sky falls regularly at my house because, lucky me, I happen to be married to a Chicken Little. It began in about 1998, when the Y2K acorn fell on my husband’s head, causing him to prepare for new millennium pandemonium following a global computer crash. Our garage became a staging area for survival supplies. Need case lots of tuna, toilet paper, solar- powered radios or freeze-dried fricassee? We stock it all. Then the Armageddon acorn beaned my sweetie’s noggin, leading to another panic. We shopped the End of the Mayan Calendar world-closeout sales, beefing up our stockpile. If anyone needs camouflage underwear, I’m sure we have a crate load. Now it’s late 2013, the world is still here, and, far from being relieved, my Chicken Little hubby is busy preparing for the next end-all disaster. The new date for The End is 2015. Seems we’re due to collide with an asteroid. 2015 is a date you mention frequently, in a more optimistic way. Can you elaborate, please? Do you share my opinion, which is, this end-of-theworld stuff is a lot of hype? Prepared, but Dubious

I have come a long way towards accepting things. But my life has been far from fair. I wanted to know when I would stop feeling like my life is nothing more than punishment and to be an accessory to everyone else’s life. People treat me differently than others for no apparent reason. Maybe I should give up asking others for advice. No one seems to get it. There is no way to explain how far I have come. I feel like your advice was meant for someone else. But anyhow I thank you for trying. It seems there is no justice and no answers for me in this life yet. Still As Unanswered as Before (my parents were NOT anything like allies, I was more-like their parent - a task I never asked for and responsibility that has colored my experience ever after) Dear Unanswered When I wrote you as Saturn’s Fair-haired Stepchild, I understood you more than you’ve realized. The line, “In a roundabout way, thus, your parents have been your greatest allies,” was encouragement for you to look at your life in a broader way. The key word is roundabout. I wanted you to see that anyone and anything that helps you to fulfill your life purpose is your ally. An adversary that unknowingly helps you toward your goal is no longer an adversary. They are your ally. This is not word games. There is power in seeing in this broader way. The power is that it puts you in control. I will say this again: Seeing your life broadly puts YOU in control.

Dear Prepared We on Earth are in the middle of a cosmic square dance in which Pluto and Uranus are doing the do-si-do until mid-2015. Unfortunately, the fiddlers in the dance are playing some questionable tunes, putting your husband and millions like him in fear of something that is cause for celebration. This is the climax of a human awakening and transition that began in the late 1800s. The collective psyche is primed to witness a great happening, and too many are trying to sway the outcome by inserting disaster scenarios into the mass awareness. Personally, I think there is too much love in the hearts of too many people for us to come to a bad end. And in case I’m wrong? I’m still betting on the good hearts, while stocking up on wine and chocolate. Come the crunch, I’ll be the one at your door at fricassee time, vino in one hand and cacao in the other. Dear Astrologer Greetings again. I thank you for your personal insight into my chart. However your assumptions about my parents are COMPLETELY off-base. My dad was a paranoid schizophrenic who suffered from alcoholism until his premature death at the age of 41. Therefore, I was always comforting and talking him back from suicidal ideas. My mother is a self-centered, over-sized child who cannot get her own life together and recently had my half-brother call to ask if he, his fiancé and my mother could come and move into my home as my stupid mother had gone and LOST EVERYTHING AGAIN. To tell me that my parents couldn’t handle me is to say that they could not handle ANYTHING. They never had ANY valuable guidance for me. So to say that they “tried” is almost insulting to a soul as lacking in parental love and guidance as I have been. If my parents were my ‘greatest allies’ I should have become a monk on a mountainside instead of being hopeful for better folks in my midst in the future.

You want to know when you will stop feeling like your life is nothing more than punishment. The answer lies in the context just described: You will stop feeling punished whenever you decide. Your life has been far from fair, because life is not about fair. Life is not about justice. To continue to think so is to keep on feeling punished by life. The day you let go your fixed notions about fairness and justice is the day you truly gain control over situations that have not seemed controllable. Take comfort in knowing that you are well along your difficult life path of releasing old truths that no longer serve you. Based on your astrology, I have full confidence that you will succeed, and will find the pains of this lifetime rewarded in ways that will make it all worthwhile. Dear Astrologer Do you do astrology for dogs? I’m wondering why Boots, my Siamese, bullies our beagle. Boots will sit on the window sill, waiting for the dog to walk by, and when he does, Boots jumps him. Lands right on the dog’s back. Since cats are good judges of character, I’d like to know what Boots sees in the dog that makes him do this. Cat Lover Dear Cat Lover I don’t read cats or dogs. I read people. If you send me your birth data, I can read Boots in your chart, presuming he’s your cat. But I can safely say without the data that you have an agitated Moon or fourth house. Do the beagle a favor. Drink a calming tea.

Nine out of ten people can’t answer the question, “Are your sleepless nights sleepless because the sky is falling, or because Saturn is doing the Watusi with your Moon again?” Don’t be one of them. Send your questions, along with your date, TIME and place of birth (as listed on your birth certificate) to Wesley at whallock@gmail.com. It’s fun and it’s free. You’ll also sleep better.

On Track with Jim Freeman

This morning we bought two tickets for next month’s Jimmie Rodgers concert in Coupeville. My blood pressure is probably still rising at press time as I imagine hearing Honeycomb, Kisses Sweeter than Wine, Uh-Oh, I’m Falling in Love Again, Secretly, and Bimbombey from a gentleman who will turn 80 just six days after his September 12th show. Tickets are available at www.brownpapertickets. com. Bring your camera. I hope to have Jimmie autograph my can of uh-oh, Spaghettios. Remember that TV commercial?

Memorable Moments of Mayhem Last week was the 39th anniversary of my Commander-in-Chief’s resignation. In his honor, I found a YouTube video of Ferrante and Teicher’s dual piano version of Exodus, and sent it on to some fellow Marines. I won’t bother you in print with their varied responses, but it did bring to mind some of the best farewells I have ever enjoyed – The last days of grade school, junior high, high school, college, law school, and the day I never looked back at the front gate of Parris Island, South Carolina.

Locally operated. When Elvis no-showed the second night of his Hilton engagement, Lopez Larry walked down to the Hilton lounge, tipped the maitre d’ two bucks, and got a front row seat to see Fats Domino. Larry said the evening at piano-side with Fats was one of the most enjoyable experiences of his life. In the mid 90s’, Jammin’ Laura of Islander Herbs, while working for a radio station in Eureka, California, was treated to backstage passes and front row seats for Bonnie Raitt. Laura even had a chance to visit with Bonnie. Jammin’ Laura’s entire story is rather remarkable as she was almost in a real jam years earlier when confronted by super creep Ted Bundy, arm in a sling, asking her for help in the parking lot of a festival in Tacoma. One look at his eyes and she was gone. Additionally, her identification of Bundy’s VW, led to his arrest weeks later. How spooky is that? Thirty years ago, when I moved here from Hollyweird, I often asked folks how they discovered Whidbey. I asked folks how and when they moved here. Everyone has such a great story. Sharing them is fun and revealing at times. What concerts do you recall enjoying? Why are you living here? Let us know.

Ooorah!

Operators are not standing by, but they will be as soon as we remove their chairs.

Front and Center

Ponderings from the Internet Ponderosa

As I hum some of the aforementioned Jimmie Rodgers songs, my mind drifts off to the many moments of my youth chasing singers, songwriters and other musical performers around the country to see them perform live.

I used to eat a lot of natural foods, until I learned most people die of natural causes.

How many times did Corporal Swigart and I go find Judy Collins singing somewhere in Southern California, usually at a college campus or a nice venue where we had to wear civilian shoes to get in?

Whenever I feel blue, I start breathing again.

How many times did Corporal Hatter and I go chase down Chuck Berry in San Diego or LA area clubs?

How is it one careless match can start a forest fire, but it takes a whole box to start a campfire?

Chuck always had a different blonde on his arm. Doubtful that he was a two buck Chuck in those days.

If Jimmy cracks corn and no one cares, why is there a song about him?

How many times did we load up in the van to go see Willie or Waylon or Merle or Johnny or Jerry Jeff Walker or John Prine?

Have you noticed since everyone has a cell phone these days, no one talks about seeing UFOs like they used to? All of us could take a lesson from the weather. It pays no attention to criticism.

If corn oil is made from corn, and vegetable oil is made from vegetables, then what is baby oil made from?

Possibly throughout the Carter administration.

Do illiterate people get the full effect of Alphabet Soup?

What about the shows you went to? Live, Memorex, or in a movie theatre?

Does pushing the elevator button more than once make it arrive faster?

The ones with your parents? The ones with your kids? The ones with your classmates?

Why doesn’t glue stick to the inside of the bottle?

How many show-stopping names can you drop?

Landing on Hamilton Beach

Frannie Johnson said she saw Gene Krupa and his band from the front row. Fifty years later, Frannie still has good hearing.

Recently, Pal and I enjoyed dinner with a soon-tobe-famous couple of south end locals. While the ladies were preparing a scrumptious meal of chili, salad, and cornbread, I drifted into the kitchen to notice a really old looking Hamilton Beach mixer, made in Racine, Wisconsin, apparently before our forefathers had discovered China.

Morton Kent said he saw the Mark Williams Orchestra from the front row, but he was the only one sitting still. Everyone else was dancing like fools. I saw Alabama Governor George Wallace speak in 1960. I was seated in the last row of the Mississippi Coliseum in Jackson. I wanted to leave early in case there was a riot. Mom took me to see Benny Goodman, The Dukes of Dixieland, and President Eisenhower. While in Memphis one summer en route to see Grandma in Missouri, Dad took me to see Sophia Loren on the big screen in Arabesque. How much bigger did Sophia need to look for this nineteen year young boy?

Below the manufacturer’s name, I spotted the word MixGuide above the knob one turns to reveal the ten settings available. Clearly, these settings reflect the speeds of the times, and the style of the cooks of the late 40s’ and early 50s’: #1–slow mixing; #2–heavy batters; #3–prepared mixes; 4th–juicing fruits; #5–icings, creams; #6–whip cream; #7–whip potatoes; #8–candy, beat eggs; #9–cooked icings; #10–attachments.

Maybe Jackie was the #2 speed of that mixer–heavy batters!

Years ago, in Hollywood, long time local Michael Licastro took three of us to see Tammy Wynette. Front row seats at the historic Roxy. Fortunately, when Tammy sang her classic, Stand by Your Man, I was no longer sitting on Michael’s lap. Just kidding, Michael, just kidding.

This Saturday evening the fun will be funning at China City in Freeland as the South Whidbey High School Class of 1983 celebrates their 30th reunion.

Remember back when the Stones were raking it in at 15 bucks a seat! Oh my, can I borrow a five so I can go? Lopez Larry, of soon-to-be-famous mustard fame, was disappointed in the mid 70s’ when Elvis was a no show at the Hilton. In light of Presley’s nonappearance the first night, Larry got comped tickets to go see Wayne Newton.

SALLY M. SMITH Sally Maurine Smith was surrounded by her loving family when she was called home to the Lord on July 13, 2013 at the age of 76. She was born July 10, 1937 in Jerome, Arizona to Lester and Mildred Bean. As a young girl, she moved with her family to Arkansas for a short time and then on to Memphis. While in high school, she met her sweetheart Jack Smith. They graduated from high school in Memphis, along with classmate, Elvis Presley. Following high school, Sally and Jack were married. Jack enlisted in the U.S. Army and was stationed in South Carolina and Virginia. When Jack left military service, they back to Memphis. They then moved to California, making their home in the LA area. In 1966 they moved to Poway, CA. In 1980, Sally was promised a job at the Whidbey News Times in Oak Harbor and she, Jack and family all headed to Whidbey Island. Thus began a 28 year career where Sally served as Office Manager under Wally Funk and John Webber with the Whidbey Press/Whidbey News Times and eventually with Sound Publishing. She retired in 2008. Sally loved to bowl, play golf and swim. She and Jack enjoyed their travel trailer and camping at the Glen at Maple Falls. She was most proud of her family and also the friends she had made over the years. She loved to help anyone in need at any time. Sally is survived by her husband Jack at the family home, by two daughters Sharon Hudson and husband Randy of Oak Harbor and Lisa Heiserman and husband Ty of Wenatchee and by four sisters and one brother and by 10 grandchildren and six great grandchildren. A Celebration of Life will be held at Wallin Funeral Home & Cremation on Saturday, August 17, 2013 at 1:00 pm with Gary Wallin, Certified Life Celebrant, officiating. A reception will follow. Friends and family are encouraged to share condolences and memories at the Book of Memories hosted by Wallin Funeral Home at www.wallinfuneralhome.com.

After locating a similar mixer for sale on E-Bay, I noticed the mixer was made in 1946, the year before Jackie Robinson changed the sporting world.

My cousin Henry took me to see my first and last Brigitte Bardot movie. I did not know enough French to understand the silence, but I did go through my popcorn pretty fast.

My law school buddy Gene never got me to a Rolling Stones concert, but he sure waited in line, sometimes for days, to get his maximum number of eight tickets.

11

Class of 1983

The officers of that class have asked me to make a cameo appearance in some skit spoofing some of their teachers. I will be wearing a brown wig and a black beret. Hopefully I will have my one line memorized by then, but, just in case, I will write my one line on the palm of my hand. Of course, that means I will have to wear my glasses to see what I have written on the palm of my hand. Maybe I’ll write my line backwards on my forehead. My forehead space is much bigger than my palm, and with a mirror, I will be able to read my line without glasses. Thanks for helping me work through this.

Caring for every age, every need By Eileen Brown The Pediatrics Program is in bloom at Rue & Primavera Occupational and Physical Therapy on Bayshore Drive in Oak Harbor. “We have a unique capacity to treat kids with autism and those born with other neurological disabilities,” said Tom Primavera, one half of a thriving practice that includes his wife, Wendolyn Rue. Primavera introduced Tara Vollertsen, a young therapist who has worked for seven years in every field, including spinal cord and brain injury, Parkinson’s and MS. “I work on sensory integration for a child with autism who has trouble with touch, hearing and movement. We also do gross motor balance and coordination, and motor planning,” said Vollertsen. Sarah Simms brings her therapy to the school district during the school year. Otherwise, the young patients are seen at the R&P office where occupational therapy helps develop fine motor skills. Joe Schoess specializes in manual therapy. “I get things moving with exercises that best fit the patient’s condition,” Schoess said. Tom specializes in Occupational Therapy and Hand Therapy. He is flattered to see patients referred to his practice from physicians all around Western Washington. Recent building enhancements mean more room for equipment, the therapist and the patient. He has a large following in hand therapy, which includes hand splinting, a device that allows for conservative movement. “I treat many patients for arthritis, fractures and carpal tunnel,” Tom added, noting there is no reason to put off getting help. “We see patients of all ages, from children to seniors, and we take Tricare, Medicare and most insurance. We won’t let anyone walk out that door in pain.” Wendolyn Rue advocates movement, “To keep us flexible throughout our lifetimes,” she said. As if in tribute to her grandmother who lost a leg in a car accident, Wendy specializes in women’s health. She treats women experiencing urinary incontinence, osteoporosis and lymphodema. She believes that physical therapy can improve the quality of your life in more ways than people know. “And we know anatomy better than anyone,” she said. Rue & Primavera are hosting a 5k running race called “Run in Color” Aug. 17 at Windjammer Park. The run will support the work of CADA. It’s a 5K run or one-quarter mile Kid Dash. Cost is $20 or $10, respectively. Just bring a white T-shirt, eyewear and be there at 8AM to register. You will be showered with non-toxic color powder. See www.runincolor.net. Tom and Wendy feel what they do is compassionate healing. They look at the whole person and are dedicated to bringing you to optimal health. Find out how they can help you by calling 279-8323 or stop by the office at 785 SE Bayshore Drive in Oak Harbor.
