LocaLLy operated. May 2, 1952 at 1:54 PM in Seattle, Washington Toast Dear Toast, I hear your inner Chicken Little telling you the sky is falling. The voice of doom is in your ear like a plug of Orson Wells’ favorite chewing tobacco, telling you your situation is hopeless. Do not listen! Your despair is because you lack a proper context within which to see yourself. You feel alone and unimportant, but you are not.

chicken liTTle And The AsTrOlOGer By Wesley Hallock

Dear Astrologer, This evening I watched a YouTube video on the power of seduction in everyday life. I also watched one about a restaurant owner who decided to tell the truth about his food being bad for you by calling his place “The Heart Attack Grill.” (Business is booming—go figure.) I have concluded that, A) I can get anything I want from life by wiggling my hips and telling the truth, no matter how much it may appear to hurt, or else, B) I have WAY too much time on my hands!

What do you think? Should I sign up for belly dancing classes? (Wink! Wink!) June 10, 1968 at 4:23 PM in Kansas City, Kansas Gemini Mama P.S. Have you thought about getting on YouTube? Dear Gemini Mama, I’ll take that P.S. as a compliment, thank you.

You don’t need belly dancing classes to get what you want. And you don’t need an astrologer to tell you why—you’re a natural flirt. I think you already know that. Zest for life is sexy, and your Libra rising, Sagittarius Moon and Gemini Venus are excellent vehicles to get you anywhere you want to go. But, in the context you describe, there’s no place for you to go. You’re already there. (Return wink!) Dear Astrologer, Still reading and enjoying your column. Is it possible to get private readings? And do you do synastry readings? I have always thought Vedic astrology is too negative, but you are changing my mind!

NM Dear NM, I am always happy to do private readings. I have emailed you a flyer with details. Synastry, for those who don’t know, is side by side comparison of two people’s astrology charts. It’s a rough guide of how two people relate, rather like grabbing a dress off the rack and holding it up to your body in front of mirror. Even more telling is to slip the dress on for an exact fitting. You will know very quickly if you’re trying to pour ten pounds of sugar into a five pound sack. That fitting in astrology is the composite chart, the mathematical combining of two charts into a very revealing third chart that often exposes details their synastry may not. The Rolls Royce of all relationship astrology, however, is the Vedic system of Moon analysis by which marriages have been arranged for thousands of years in India. Moon analysis tells you point by point how the dress will feel the first night you wear it to the party, how the dress holds up at the cleaners after you’ve spilled cocktail sauce down the front, how gracefully it will contain the five pounds you gain over the holidays, and, ultimately, whether you will want to make it central to your wardrobe and acquire accessories around it or drop it like a banana peel into the thrift store bin. That’s Moon analysis. It’s good stuff. Dear Astrologer, Sorry to bother you again but I need to know one more thing. You have told others that they have a gift to give in this transition. I understand that I won’t be able to do much until 2017, but do I have a gift or is my life as over as it feels?

You are part of a large spiritual family with a task before it and your presence is essential. Therein lies your gift. Great cosmic winds of change are raging like the national debt on this planet, and your gift is the rate at which you choose to take the changes deeply into yourself. Hold your nose, pretend they’re honey and swallow. Your personal ability to swallow change is unsurpassed. Use it to banish the inner Chicken Little and find a positive outlook, then cling to the positive like bubble gum to a shoe heel. I am not saying you like change, but you can do it. The transition of which I often speak is first, last and always a transition of mind and perception. The more you unleash your mind now, the happier you will be in 2017. If you do nothing, you reap nothing. To better understand what I’m saying, read about soul families and the hero’s journey in “The Synchronicity Key” by David Wilcock. Your librarian can get you a copy if you cannot afford one. Restated in theater terms, your gift is your presence on the stage of life. Many important lines could not be delivered without you. How many readers, for example, may awaken to the same fact about themselves because of the gift of your letter? Thank you, and welcome to the spotlight. Dear Astrologer, Is my Venus completely afflicted? ... I broke up with my partner of five years a year and a half ago. I had been thinking I needed to do this for a while. Years. I started seeing someone new pretty soon after. But I feel confused. I’m not able to let go of my ex, even though I did the breaking. I know I probably need “alone time,” but is there something in my chart that would point to why I seem to be especially confused and bad at this?

March 9, 1984, at 1:19pm, Austin, TX Confused by Love Dear Confused, Your confusion is sourced in your Moon. Compulsive attractions, followed by discontent with the object of attraction, are your Moon’s chronic pattern. Deep inside, you are still discovering who and what you are. The old love on whom you are stuck once held promise of providing answers. Discontent arose when you discovered he did not. You wanted to say goodbye long before you were able to, because of the compulsive nature of your Moon. Compulsions are like superglue. You find yourself stuck to the most inconvenient things, only to discover you can’t let go. Presently, Pluto is sitting like a sweaty sumo wrestler exactly atop your seventh house Jupiter. Pluto’s creed is “grow or die,” while Jupiter represents men. A year and a half ago, Pluto was thus the agent by which your relationship finally broke. You feel especially confused, now, because Pluto is resurrecting the lost hopes and dreams that died on that day. By year’s end Pluto will have moved to a degree more comfortable for you. Look for rapid progression away from your current troubling thoughts in the weeks ahead. 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 planetbiz4u2@gmail.com. It’s fun and it’s free. You’ll also sleep better.

First Membership Meeting and Board Election for Friends of South Whidbey State Park

Letters to the Editor Editor, Washington voters will soon decide whether foods made with genetically modified ingredients (GMOs) should be labeled. GMO products can carry introduced genetic material from bacteria, viruses, plants or animals. Unfortunately, the opponents of I-522, the initiative mandating such labeling, are promoting false claims that they hope will confuse the issue and lead to its defeat. Manufacturers are currently required to label food with nutritional facts, serving sizes and country of origin to help us make decisions about what we want to eat. Adding a few words to that label should not be a burden because products are relabeled routinely to attract the shopper’s attention. Under I-522, manufacturers have up to 18 months to comply. I-522 will not conflict with the labeling requirements of other States. It will place Washington labels in compliance with international labeling standards. These new labels will help many Washington farmers and specialty food producers enter markets that demand GMO-free food. The labeling does not imply that GMO food is unsafe. It allows us to make choices for our families. Long term studies are still needed before the issue of safety can be settled. Will labeling lead to increased food costs? Prices did not rise in Europe when labeling was mandated. If US industries re-design their products to avoid the GMO label, their ingredient costs may increase. Will GMO labeling lead to expensive lawsuits? Current law requires that all labels be accurate and complete. I-522 provides for a civil fine, payable to the government, for non-compliance. It does not allow suing for damages. GMO labeling is not the burden that I-522 opponents would have us believe. On the contrary, I-522 would expand our farmers’ markets and empower us to make informed decisions about the foods that are best for us. Please vote YES on I-522. Carol E. Goldberg, Oak Harbor

Editor, Making history. Recently on a sun soaked Saturday in September, Whidbey Island saw its largest Climate Justice rally to date when 30 concerned citizens gathered on the corners of Highway 20 and Main Street in Coupeville to “Draw the Line”, an event coordinated by the students at 350.org. This was just one of 300

similar events with thousands of participants throughout the US. The purpose? To continue to bring attention to the urgent need to move past the life ending use of fossil fuels. According to the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change’s 5th report released this month, it is now 97% certain that global warming is human driven. Given that 100% is impossible (unless you are God) those are bad odds to bet against and yet, that is what we are doing. Greenhouse gas emissions, led by CO2, continue to rise beyond dangerous levels. We no longer have to assume what climate destabilization will look like. We can see the destabilizing influence of a less then 1 degree Celsius increase: Supersized hurricanes and tornadoes, forest fires, floods and drought; resource wars like Darfur and Syria; landslides like Ledgewood Beach. Global warming and CO2 are also changing our ocean and leading to sea level rise. All of these consequences, and more, will become more frequent and impactful. Recently 4 Republican heads of the EPA pleaded in a New York Times op-ed for a carbon tax as part of the solution to this crisis. It is clear that a business as usual will result in an unimaginably dangerous, inhospitable future for our children. Because it is unbelievable does not mean it is not true. The only thing you have to do to leave a devastated world is nothing. It takes one snowflake to create an avalanche. Join the efforts of the Sierra Club, 350.org, Citizen’s Climate Lobby and others for positive change. Gary Piazzon President, Climate Reality Education and Advocacy Team President, Whidbey Environmental Action Network

Editor, I’m Rocco Gianni and I’m asking you to elect me to the South Whidbey School Board. I’ve been a teacher for 41 years, 33 years of them right here on South Whidbey. My three children graduated from South Whidbey High School. I still have a grandson in the fourth grade here. After earning my Master’s Degree in Education, and an Administrative Credential, I taught at the Middle School here and also worked as an adjunct faculty member at Seattle Pacific University. There I helped experienced teachers build effective skills to reach students with diverse learning styles. My early teaching experience on South Whidbey was in special education, including programs for children at risk. Our schools have a sound academic program to make students career and college ready, so we don’t need to change all our existing programs. What we need to do is augment existing programs with even more opportunities. One strength of our school district is our community’s diverse culture. Our challenge is to meet that diversity to benefit our students.

I’m asking for your vote based on my extensive and wide-ranging experience in education. That includes coaching, teaching high school biology, teaching severely emotionally challenged children, special ed and professional teacher development.

The newly formed Friends of South Whidbey State Park will hold its first major membership meeting on Monday evening, October 21 from 7:00pm to 9:00pm at St. Augustine’s Episcopal Church, 5271 S. Honeymoon Bay Road in Freeland.

I believe my longstanding involvement and affection for our community is my strongest qualification to serve on the South Whidbey School Board. I know the needs of the kids, the resources of the community and how to bring them together. Please mark you ballot for Rocco Gianni.

Craig and Joy Johnson, well known bird experts and photographers, will present a special program, “Birds of South Whidbey State Park.”

wide experience working with us on Red Cross issues of community preparedness and response, volunteer recruitment, and Service to the Armed Forces,” said Barbara Atterberry, board chair of The Islands Chapter. “I know his talents will greatly benefit the community and our many Red Cross volunteers.” Chuck Morrison, regional executive director for the Red Cross, added: “Mike is well positioned to help the local Red Cross focus on community resilience in the face of the disasters we’re most likely to encounter in this area with unique vulnerabilities.” In 2012, The Islands Chapter assisted 29 families affected by home fires and other emergencies, and provided emergency communications and other assistance for over 400 military families through Red Cross’s Service to Armed Forces Programs. Both services are provided predominantly by volunteers. “The Red Cross is a crucial player in emergency response and preparedness in our diverse group of island communities,” says Mike Stamper, “and I look forward to meeting the people, businesses and agencies that help keep our communities resilient. I am excited to have the opportunity to bring together my colleagues in the fire service and Red Cross communities in a way that improves emergency response for every person in the Islands Chapter.” The work of Islands Chapter, like all other Red Cross operations, is supported almost exclusively by donations from the American public. A gift of any size supports the lifesaving mission of the American Red Cross, whether it is responding to a disaster, teaching skills that can save a life, or assisting our military members and their families.

Mukilteo Project Wins Environmental Recognition The Federal Transit Administration recognized Washington State Ferries’ Mukilteo Multimodal Project for excellence in environmental documentation preparation on Sunday, September 29, at the American Public Transportation Association meeting. The final environmental impact statement for the Mukilteo Multimodal Project distinguished itself in a number of ways: It effectively communicated a complex project with visual information and plain language. Multiple graphics and maps helped the reader understand the project, including the trade-offs among alternatives. “I am proud of the accomplishments of the Mukilteo project team,” said David Moseley, WSDOT assistant secretary, ferries division. “Our successes are shared with our project partners and the communities of Mukilteo and Whidbey Island.” To determine the winning projects, FTA used specific criteria, including: · satisfied the requirements of the National Environmental Policy Act

Community Engagement in Oil Spill Preparedness and Response In Island County: A Free Workshop

· designed to be useful to the public and decision makers

Are you prepared for a major oil spill in Island County? How will it impact you? Will you be involved in the clean-up? Who is in charge and what happens behind the scenes? These questions and others will be addressed at a free upcoming workshop on Community Engagement in Oil Spill Response and Readiness at the Coupeville Recreation Hall on Saturday, October 26, from 9:00am to 3:30pm.

WSF released the final environmental impact statement for Mukilteo Multimodal Project in June 2013. The preferred alternative, known as a modified Elliot Point 2, relocates the ferry terminal one-third of a mile east of the existing terminal. This fall FTA is expected to issue a Record of Decision, which completes the environmental review process and allows WSF to move forward with design and construction once funding becomes available.

Come hear from US Coast Guard Captain Scott Ferguson about the decisions he has to make and what he considers when there is an oil spill. Meet representatives from the Department of Ecology, Department of Fish and Wildlife, Tribes, and Local Emergency Management, who are actively involved in clean-up and response efforts and hear about their roles in the event of a major oil spill. Learn about the challenges spill responders would face in dealing with a spill in Island County and how you can help before, during, and after a spill.

Rooks Complete Prowler to Growler Transition By Lt. Corey Jones, VAQ-137 reporter The Rooks of Electronic Attack Squadron 137 (VAQ-137) were recently certified “Safe for Flight” in the EA-18G Growler. The certification, awarded in September, is the culmination of nine months of training in the Navy’s newest electronic attack aircraft. The transition began when the Rooks flew their last EA-6B Prowler from NAS Whidbey Island to NAS Jacksonville, Fla., last December. In January the training began in earnest, with personnel splitting their training between VFA-106 in NAS Oceana, Va., VFA-122 in Lemoore, Calif., and locally at VAQ-129. The syllabus at VAQ-129 reflects the improved capabilities of the Growler. The training included events that were both familiar and completely new to previous Prowler aircrews. In addition to various electronic attack missions, the training included All Weather Intercepts, Fighter Weapons Tactics and Basic Fighter Maneuvering. The crews also trained on employing the AIM-120 Advanced MediumRange Air-to-Air Missile (AMRAAM). During the transition, the maintenance department had two major inspections, the Conventional Weapons Technical Proficiency Inspection (CWTPI) and Electronic Attack Wing’s Maintenance Program Assist (MPA). The Rooks excelled at both inspections. CWTPI primarily tested the squadron’s ability to correctly handle the Growler’s weapon systems, including AIM-120 AMRAAM, AGM-88 HARM and ALQ-99 Jamming Pods. The Rooks scored an outstanding 167.5 out of 170 on the inspection. The MPA inspection was the final exam for maintenance and again the Rooks showed their exemplary skills and teamwork. “If we look at what this squadron has accomplished during this transitional period, I can say with the utmost confidence that this Rook team

has surpassed all expectations and set a whole new standard,” said Ensign Jonathon McGaha, the Rooks’ Maintenance Material Control Officer. “I am extremely proud to be a Rook.” To celebrate the designation, the squadron hosted a picnic on Friday, September 20 that included representatives from CVWP, VAQ-129, and Boeing. Capt John P. Springett, Commodore, Electronic Attack Wing Pacific, congratulated the Rooks for their hard work. Boeing presented the Rooks with a flag and aircraft model of a Growler painted with a Rook paint scheme. And to the delight of all attendees, Chief Aviation Machinist’s Mate Ryan Grabner provided a beef brisket that was easily a crowd favorite. The Safe for Flight designation is the first step in a long road for the Rooks. Their next deployment is scheduled for early 2015. [Submitted by Anthony Popp, NAS Whidbey Island]

Don Jans Speaking on “My Grandchildren’s America” Republicans of Island County are proud to present noted author, historian and American, Don Jans, in person. He asks the question, “Will America still be the land of the free and home of the brave?” Throughout the election cycle of 2008, then presidential candidate Barack Obama claimed that under his leadership, America would begin a “Fundamental Transformation”. In the 1800s, Karl Marx preached the same philosophy. Jans outlines the policies advocated by Marx. He doesn’t tell you how to think, but he gives you the facts so you can determine if the “Fundamental Transformation” President Obama has in mind is parallel to the vision of Karl Marx. The presentation will be October 18 at the Best Western Hotel & Conference Center in Oak Harbor. Doors open at 6:30pm, coffee and cookies furnished. $10 donation per person requested.

sTill TAlkinG By Eileen Brown

You’ve got your eye on that promotion but wish you were a stronger public speaker, or maybe you just want the satisfaction of speaking comfortably offthe-cuff or holding a roomful of people spellbound. I bet you already know the organization that can help you achieve your goal: Toastmasters, of course. Speaking with confidence to a board who will decide whether or not you are promotion material is just one way to show your leadership skills. Empowering people to develop their communication skills is part of the Toastmasters’ mission. During my recent visit to an open Toastmasters’ meeting at San Remo Restaurant, the first thing that caught me by surprise was the sheer number of people. There were Competent Communicators (CC); Competent Leaders (CL); the usual slate of officers and, of course, several guests. Let me say at the start that just about all the guests stuck around after the meeting to sign up for membership. The Whidbey Sounders, Post 4902 as they are officially known, has almost 30 members. What is important to note is they get plenty of time playing various roles. The individual Toastmaster for the evening (Jennifer Lesko) is responsible for the overall conduct of the evening. The “Ah� Counter for the evening (Marleene Keffeler) even counts the number of times a speaker says “You know� and “Ah,� so-called “filler� words. A Timer (David Nealon) records how long one talks. This individual controls a stop light: green (minimum time met), amber for (approaching maximum allotted time) and red (time limit reached). A tightly packed agenda looks intimidating until one recalls the time limits set for each speaker. The first speaker of the night was Sean Callahan, CC, who presented an impromptu speech about “How to Win at Everything.� Callahan’s use of body language appealed to the audience who learned that one can succeed at meditation with practice. JR Russell, CC, reassured guests and members by saying, “Everyone will get what they need from Toastmasters and you can learn at your own pace. Now that I have completed my CC (presented 10 core speeches), the fun begins.� He set a small cardboard box marked “The Mother of All Diamonds� before the room as folks craned to see what was inside. It contained a goblet and some black rocks. He spoke of a boy whose impatience kept him from receiving a diamond like the other children. The moral of the story? It is a precious gift to be patient.

dered what in the world they were talking about. Find out every second, fourth and fifth Tuesday of the month from 6:30 to 8PM at San Remo Mediterranean Grill, 421 NE Midway, Oak Harbor. You can find more info on Toastmasters at www.whidbeysounders. org or email Mary Jo Strain, vice president of membership, at whidbeysounders@gmail. com. The kindest kids We are grateful this week for a touching demonstration of caring by seven young people on North Whidbey. Sadly, the mother of one of them is dealing with cancer. Despite all odds, she continues to fight the disease although treatments themselves are debilitating. In a demonstration of social consciousness and support, without any adult involvement or knowledge, these fifth graders at Coupeville Elementary School established a breast cancer club. Members are Knight Arndt, Brooke Ausman, Nicole Bishop-Sipes, Coral Caveness, Daniel Olson, Lilly Tornensis and Lily Zustiak. All are in Deb Sherman’s class. They do not work on the project during school, but meet every week at recess during their free time. Calling themselves Kids for a Cause, they have positions of varying degrees of responsibility, such as vice president, assistant VP and regular employees. There is a provision for replacement of office workers if employees cannot discharge their duties. Last week they were successful in placing donation jars at Flyers Restaurant and Brewery, Hallmark, New Image Hair Salon and Soroptimist Upscale Resale. Jars were decorated by members of the breast cancer club to support their classmate. So far they’ve collected $103. Funds collected will go to help their classmate’s family who is struggling financially because of this disease. In a world where domestic troubles and foreign threats dominate the news, it is reassuring to see young people plan and execute a way of raising funds and awareness. Their parents and siblings ought to be proud of their example. I know I’d like to thank them on behalf of everyone reading this. If you would like more information or to contribute to Kids for a Cause, you may leave a donation in one of the locations listed above or call Tamra Sipes at 360-914-0800. Missing the routine What next? Tires have been thrown into a river in Nebraska. Food poisoning microbes await analysis in Atlanta. Wreckage of a plane in California must be preserved in case safety investigators return. These are but three of the backlog of cases waiting to be handled during the government shutdown. Make that “partial� shutdown.

Third and final speaker of the evening’s main speech portion was Jim Jolly, CC. He told guests how he became caught up in a virtual football game online with a 14-yearold boy in California. The suspense built as his opponent took advantage of his indecision and age. “He would never punt,� Jolly moaned. “In chess, you can quit; in online football, you cannot quit.� Jolly said he finally completed a pass, his guy caught it and proceeded to do a touchdown dance, regrettably on the three-yard line.

Almost forgot. There will be no pick up of trash along 39 miles of the Missouri River in northeast Nebraska because volunteers lost the use of federal boats.

You may find it intimidating at first to stand before a roomful of people, but eight of the guests raised their hands to become new members. One of them, Giovanni Strain, said, “I have seen such improvement in the members, it was an easy decision for me.�

For building or for burning, wood will cost you more. Timber will wait to be felled if the shutdown lasts much longer. IRS refunds and farm subsidy checks are backing up, too.

The second part of the meeting was an impromptu speaking exercise called Table Topics where a few more speakers had the opportunity to speak off the cuff on the table topic of the evening: Tattoos! As the group headed for their cars, not without a last-minute huddle or two, I won-

And I know I look forward to the sick numbers every year that go something like, “From New Jersey to South Florida, it is estimated 30,000 people are down with influenza.� While from Washington State to South Oregon, people living that bubble of perfect climate and health are getting along beautifully.

On Track with Jim Freeman

When I was a kid learning about our U.S. Constitution, my initial understanding of the 2nd Amendment was that it gave us the right to wear short-sleeved shirts. Having seen the many historical paintings and pictures of British royalty, with their unisex Victorian collars and frilly long sleeved blouses, it made good sense to me that the right to bare arms would be right up there with freedom of expression, freedom of religion, and freedom of thought. Come to think of it, that freedom of thought right is not specified, is it? We must get that right, not from the Constitution, but from each other. Even freedom of the press would not print what we are all thinking. Mutt Strut Mania This Saturday, October 19, stop by Bayview Corner for the annual Apple Day Fest and Mutt Strut Parade. The gathering from noon until 3PM gets bigger and better every year. Words cannot describe the pictures you will take of the critters, the kids, and the crowd.

Locally operated. which passed me by while I was doing my spelling words with Mom at the dining room table was the Creed of the Lone Ranger’s Father. Fortunately, our wonderful Sno-Isle Regional Library system does offer bound comic books so we adults can look like we are taking home a regular book when we enter the library parking lot to return to our horses. Remember the Lone Ranger? Like all good kids, little Lone sure remembered his father’s sage advice, which we have located in The Lone Ranger *Omnibus Vol.1*, reprinted below, without his father’s permission: “My father taught this thing to me when I was young. It wasn’t a prayer, not exactly. That was something he used to say everyone had to decide whether or not to take on for themselves, on the terms offered. The word he used was CREED. I learned it no different than the pledge or the names of states. He was open to my suggestions. How it could be made better in any way. I never could come up with one. ‘I believe that to have a friend, a man must be one. That all men are created equal. And that everyone has within himself the power to make this a better world. That God put the firewood there, but that every man must gather and light it himself.

Just ask photographer David Welton.

In being prepared physically, mentally, and morally.

Dr. David will be the tall guy with the smile on his face, hidden by his wonderful camera lens.

To fight when necessary for that which is right.

Four Weddings Right after the Mutt Strut Parade, celebrity judges will decide which four-legged and twolegged entries will be crowned with the 2013 Mutt Strut Awards.

That a man must make the most of what equipment he has.

While this event would be prime time fodder on Animal Planet, only this non-reporter from your Whidbey Weekly will have a birds eye view of the contestants as I serve honorably as the emcee. My camera will be at the ready just in case I remember to get new batteries. Following the awards, I will be scurrying to Oak Harbor’s Blue Fox Drive-In for the wedding reception of Kelsey and Nick. Their ceremony and reception is being covered by the Four Weddings TV Show featured on the TLC Network Thursdays at 9PM. Given that the Blue Fox Drive-In is one of only five drive-in theaters still operating in the State of Washington, Kelsey and Nick should get extra points for a unique location.

That ‘This Government of the People, by the People, and for the People’ shall live always. That men should live by the rule of what is the greatest number. That sooner or later, somewhere, somehow, we must settle with the world and make payment for what we have taken. That all things change but Truth, and that Truth alone lives forever, in my Creator, my Country, my Fellow Man.’” Why I Am Confused One of the challenging things involved in the aging process, and we are not talking cheese or whiskey here, is the joy of recycling memory cells. I am convinced, like computers, we have only so much random access memory in our mind.

Surely we will all throw popcorn instead of rice as the conjugaled couple runs between the rows of autos and pick-up trucks.

As young kids, we could remember everything we heard or saw because the majority of our memory was yet to be used.

Following their reception, the newlyweds will secret away from their families and friends sometime during a double feature showing of Pretty Woman, in honor of bride Kelsey, and The Man of Steel in honor of groom Nick.

As we age, more experiences are created, which create more memories, thereby using more memory space to remember our creations.

During the intermission of the double feature, father of the bride, Terry Greene, will whistle theme songs from old TV shows while replicating the bird calls of endangered species. Word of the Week Boss--(n.) a mentor who encourages you to achieve your full potential. Had I known the above meaning of the word back in the day of non-self employment, I might not have made fun of so many. Overheard by Cardboard “You know, I am a life-long Republican, and all my friends are Republican, but they think I’m crazy because I have a Prius. Well, I drive a Prius so I can save $150 a month on gas. And with that $150 a month I save on gas, I can buy ammo. I’d rather be judged by twelve, than carried by six.” The Creed of the Lone Ranger’s Father Another advantage of adulthood is being able to return to the memories of yesteryear, if such memories can be recalled. In an effort to review all of the comic books and television shows I missed as a kid because I was doing my homework, I am trying to return to some of the moments of my youth to see what I missed. Certainly one of the most important things

11

Unlike computers, we cannot go get more random access memory when we are full. We cannot, as Paul McCartney suggests in song, “RAM ON“. We, as humans, with animate memories, must delete old memories to make room for newer ones. We are not really aging, we are deleting. So, let us get on with it, and forget again where our car keys are. Best Old Sign My brother, a long time domiciliary of the Capitol beltway of our nation’s capital, used to see a sign while driving his morning commute. The sign used to adorn the side of a building in downtown Washington D.C. in a part of town that was then somewhat rundown.   The sign said, prominently: Jimmy’s Tires-If they’re round, we got ‘em. Which brings us to that motto of General Yamashita’s, so deliberately articulated by Sessue Hayakawa while portraying Colonel Saito in the 1957 seven-time Academy Award winner, “The Bridge On The River Kwai”–Be happy in your work. Go ahead and laugh out loud. If you are like me, self-employed or unemployed, no one can hear you but you.

Donald Raymond Zimmer Donald Raymond Zimmer was born in Denver, Colorado on February 17, 1934 to John Russell Zimmer and Mildred Kathryn Snyder. He grew up in Denver with two younger brothers: John and Dick. After graduation from South High School, Donald was drafted into the Korean War. During the war he served as a Forward Artillery Observer and was in charge of communicating battlefield intelligence. After the war, Donald returned to Denver and became a union bricklayer known for his creativity, hard work, and attention to detail. When not at a job site, he could likely be found fishing, gardening, socializing, cooking, playing cards, or watching sports. Donald also found time to get married (a couple times) and raise seven children: Chris, Tambrie, Donald Jr., Timothy, David, Shannon, and Kelly. Donald married Sharon Jessen on June 10, 1972 and raised their children in Littleton, Colorado. After the children moved out, he and Sharon moved to Oak Harbor, Washington in August 1998 for retirement. Donald was an active member of the Veterans of Foreign Wars (VFW) Post 7392 and frequent volunteer for their pancake breakfasts and other fundraising events. He represented the military and veterans in local school assemblies, often marched in the local parades carrying the American Flag, and delivered food to the needy during the holidays. In February 2013, Donald suffered from a stroke and never fully healed. He passed away peacefully at Careage of Whidbey nursing facility in Coupeville, Washington on October 6, 2013 at the age of 79. Donald leaves behind his wife Sharon, 7 children, 13 grandchildren, and 2 great grandchildren. He taught us all that if something was worth doing, it was worth giving our best. He’ll be remembered for his humility, kindness, generosity, and ever present Korea Veteran hat. The twinkle in Donald’s eye came from his mother’s Irish heritage – he fully expected to someday find the end of the rainbow, a four-leaf clover, or that magical Leprechaun. That lucky someday finally came last Sunday….in heaven. Funeral services for Don Zimmer were held on Thursday, October 10 at 1:00pm at Concordia Lutheran Church, Oak Harbor with Rev. Mark Hanson officiating. Family graveside services followed at Maple Leaf Cemetery with full military honors under the auspices of the U. S. Army. Memorials may be made to the Concordia Lutheran Church. Family and friends are encouraged to share memories and condolences in the Book of Memories hosted by Wallin Funeral Home at www. wallinfuneralhome.com

Anne Carol Chambers Anne Carol Chambers, age 73 of Greenbank, died October 7, 2013. She was born in Phoenix, AZ on January 19, 1940, to George and Jane Judson. Her father founded the Judson School for Boys for which she took great pride and interest until its closing in 2000. When she was a young girl her father was killed in an airplane accident and her mother remarried and moved to Riverside, California. She graduated high school from Polytechnic High School in 1957. Anne married Allen Lee, an Air Force band musician, in 1964 and traveled with their growing family to California, Japan and Washington. In the late 1970’s Anne was awarded an Associate of Arts in Veterinary Science at Ft. Steilacoom Community College which began a long career caring and working with animals. Anne’s love for animals was more than a career for her as she was always rescuing abused or abandoned animals of all kinds. In particular, she loved horses and rode and taught Dressage to adults and children with disabilities. Late in her life Anne discovered a passion for teaching while volunteering as a math tutor in the South Whidbey Island School District. While working full time with the most difficult and hard to reach students, Anne was able to inspire multitudes of them to learn and persevere through their own difficulties. Although Anne earned little or no money for her work with kids she often spoke of how her work with students enriched her life and how the young people she worked with gave her life newfound meaning and significance. Anne had an incredible love for her children and her grandchildren. She was very proud that her daughter Heidi was an artist, her daughter Shawn was a flight paramedic, her daughter Laura was a mechanical engineer, and her son Aaron was an administrator at a high school. She also found great joy in the fact that all of her children were in loving relationships and had wonderful children of their own. Anne is survived by her children, Heidi Meairs and her partner Ginny, Shawn Brooks and her husband Ray, Laura Volpe and husband Jim, and Aaron Lee and his wife Julie. In addition, Anne is survived by her grandchildren Jonathan, Jessica, Ethan, Cameron, Claire, Katerra, William, Marcus and Judson and her sisters Muffett Weizenegger, Mary Lou Jones and Mary Kay Meairs. A private Celebration of Life was held in Oak Harbor at the Wallin Funeral Home on Friday, October 11th. In lieu of flowers, donations may be made to WAIF www.waifanimals.org/support South Whidbey High School PTSA SWHighSchoolPTSA@gmail.com “S.A.F.E.” (Save A Forgotten Equine) www.safehorses.org/?page_id=642 Friends and family are encouraged to share condolences and memories at the Book of Memories at www.wallinfuneralhome.com.
