ON WHIDBEY ISLAND, WINTER FARE IS THERE FOR THE TAKING For the lovers of Whidbey fare, the cool weather season provides an opportunity for consumers to deepen relationships with local farmers. As main season growing subsides to more challenging conditions, a quick chat with your farmer provides both the knowledge of what is available and a glimspe into what it means to grow locally year-round. In the Pacific Northwest, as each season changes, so do the variables that influence our food. Winter is often laden with frost, heavy rains, and lack of light – major contributors to dormancy in plants, both wild and domestic. As petals curl and leaves shed, a plant’s energy becomes centered in its roots below, preparing for the rough months ahead. Admist all the change, one can still find delicious food nestled in the landscape on Whidbey this winter. Root vegetables, for example, which include a wide variety of carrots and beets, radishes and turnips, rutabagas, jeruselum artichokes, and leeks, store well in the ground, an earthen refrigerator until the hard frost arrives. Overwintering Brassicas – brussels sprouts, broccoli, kale, cabbage, collards, cauliflower, and event giant kohlrabi – are picked well into mid-winter. Storage crops like potatoes, dry beans, onions, garlic, and winter squash lay in waiting for your purchase in barns and farm stands. A quick phone call or email, a visit to a farmer’s website or Facebook page, can connect you directly with local food right now in our cool weather season. There are many resources available to connect you with local food. A few tips – keep your eyes open for road side and farm stands, look for “local” on grocery store labels, visit a winter farmers market, join a cool season CSA, or sign-up through a variety of farm mailing lists to stay “in-the-know” about what produce is available and where to find it. How should you start? A variety of organizations that support local producers have developed informational brochures and websites to help you in your search for local fare. Below is a list of several tools available to you – but even more exists out there! A bit of research and creativity can point you in the right direction and connect you with the farms and food that you love on Whidbey. Helpful Resources to Get You Started Goosefoot’s 2016 Farm Stands brochure www.goosefoot.org/pdf/farmstands.pdf A great directory for locating a farm stand near you. Contact Marian at marian@goosefoot. org if you wish to be added to this brochure. Farm stands open this season, but not featured on the brochure include Bell’s Farm and Foxtail Farm. Slow Food – Whidbey Island’s Directory of Farm Stands, Farmers Markets, and CSA Programs www.slowfoodwhidbeyisland.org/csa/ A great compliment to Goosefoot’s directory, and includes farmers market and CSA information, as well. Whidbey and Camano Island Tourism’s Farmers Market Map http://whidbeycamanoislands.com/things-to-do/ food-wine/farmers-markets/ A map featuring the hours of Whidbey and Camano Island’s farmers markets. Whidbey Island Conservation District’s Local Agriculture Resource Page www.whidbeycd.org/local-agriculture.html Features a variety of resources for local food, for both the consumer and producer. Opportunities in October, November, and Beyond With fall still underway and winter arriving

soon, farms and other vendors come together in unique ways to connect with consumers. Below are examples of places where you can purchase local food on Whidbey this winter. Check it out! Farm Stands – Some of Whidbey’s farm stands remain open all year long. In the cool season, hours can change due to weather or crop availability, so it’s best to call ahead or visit each farm’s website or Facebook page to ensure you are up-to-date on your favorite farm stand. Cool Season CSA (Community Supported Agriculture) Programs – Several farms on Whidbey Island offer cool-season extensions to their main season CSA. Sign-ups for these CSAs often go fast, so a call in to the farmers directly is encouraged. Deep Harvest Farm in Freeland, for example, has a cool season CSA that runs through December. Farm Mailing Lists – Sign-up for regular updates from your farmers on their mailing list. Several farms use mailing lists to market their products in the off-season. For example, four farms in central Whidbey come together for Endless Summer, a weekly mailing list that allows consumers to order and pick-up on Saturdays from Rosehip Farm in Coupeville starting October 22. Contact Linda Barlett at rosehip@whidbey.net for more information. Markets – Markets are great social events, and a way to meet your farmers all at one place and time. The Bayview Farmers Market remains open Saturdays through the end of October 2016, 10 a.m. – 2 p.m. The Clinton, Coupeville, Langley, Oak Harbor, and South Whidbey Tilth Markets have closed for the season and will reopen in spring. The Oak Harbor Holiday Market, held at Hummingbird Farm Nursey and Gardens features local products each Saturday, 10 a.m. – 3 p.m., from October 15 to December 24. The Bayview Holiday Market will open its doors Saturdays at Bayview Community Hall, starting November 26 through December 17, 10 a.m – 2 p.m. Grocery Stores, Restaurants, & Caterers – Grocery stores throughout Whidbey Island continue to feature local products in winter. The Star Store in Langley, Goose Community Grocer in Bayview, Prairie Center Red Apple Market in Coupeville, and Three Sisters Market in San de Fuca, are several stores you can visit. Strike up a conversation with the produce manager to find out what’s seasonally available the next time you stop to shop. Restaurants also sport local fare on their menus. Ask about what’s fresh from the farm next time you go to your favorite eatery or special order from a caterer. Community & On-Farm Events – Many farms host celebrations on-site. With fall, comes the harvest. Call up the farms nearest you to see what’s on their calendar and if you can attend. Community groups also hold events that feature local farms and their produce, or celebrate slow food. October’s The Haunting of Coupeville (http://minref.wixsite.com/ coupeville-halloween) features several farms that provide produce and entertainment for the entire family. As the season of rest approaches, when it comes to finding local food this winter, there is no need to feel restless. Nestled among the contours of the landscape, for sale in farm stands and on store shelves, winter fare is there for the taking and with your next meal you’ll be making a feast with what Whidbey’s winter has to offer this year.

ON TRACK with Jim Freeman

After listening to the very first tie in Seattle Seahawks franchise history, I wondered how many of those football players were glad not to be soccer players.

For those head ball hitters in soccer, a tie can be a win. I used to think the same about a D on an economics test. Reasonable doubt A defendant was on trial for murder. There was strong evidence indicating guilt, but there was no corpse. In his closing statement, the defense lawyer, knowing his client would most assuredly be convicted, resorted to a bit of jurisprudential trickery. "Ladies and gentlemen of the jury, I have a surprise for all of you," the lawyer said as he looked at his watch. "Within one minute, a mere sixty seconds, the person presumed dead in this case will walk into this courtroom." The lawyer then turned his head to look toward the courtroom door. The jurors, somewhat stunned, all eagerly looked to the doorway. As the seconds ticked away, a minute passed. Nothing happened. Finally the lawyer said, "Actually, ladies and gentlemen of the jury, I made up the previous statement. However, you all looked on with anticipation. I, therefore, put it to you that you have a reasonable doubt in this case as to whether anyone was killed, and I insist you return a verdict of not guilty." The jury retired to deliberate. A few minutes later, the jury returned to pronounce – a verdict of guilty. "But how?" inquired the lawyer. "All twelve

Whidbey Weekly of you must have had some doubt. I saw all of you stare at the door." The jury foreman replied, “Yes, we did look, but unfortunately, the defendant did not.” Thanks to one of our incarcerated readers for this submission of legal humor. We only wish we could use his name. Animal Farm Given my continued curiosity for all things curious, I have received permission to share with you a recent e-mail from my God niece Terri. She is a grandmother and mother answering my previous e-mail asking for more details about her daughter Hannah's and sonin-law Lance's network of dependents. “Their pit bull-sharpai mix is Remmi, a sweet girl Hannah rescued when she was only eight weeks old. Our resident Chihuahua is Chunky Dunk. Duncan for short. He was adopted from a rescue, was badly abused. Local police pulled him, injured, out of a home during a drug raid. The Siberian husky is Gunner, which Hannah bought as a Valentine's day present for Lance. That's how she talked him into it. Rat Fink is the cat. She was found as a tiny baby in a tree during a rain storm. Reptar is the bearded dragon. He came from a pet store as a tiny baby, about four inches long, tail and all. Reptar is now over two feet in length, and walks on a leash with a Guinea pig harness. Jello is the gecko, another gift for Lance. Jim is a three-legged hamster that was categorized, “Unadoptable" at the pet store. Jim could be gifted, but not sold. Jim has ramps in his hamster condo because tubes are hard for him to crawl up. Before Jim there was Gummy, another "Unadoptable" hamster because he had no teeth. Hannah had to chop his food up everyday. He was only two when he crossed the rainbow bridge. Hannah's ferrets are Diesel and Cinnamon. They belonged to an ex-roommate of Lance. Roommate left, ferrets didn't. Snakes are Jax and Bally, ball pythons. Titan is a ghost butterball and then the pie ball

The Country Doctor A young doctor had moved out to a small community to replace a doctor who was retiring. The older doctor suggested the young one accompany him on his rounds, so the community could become used to a new doctor.

that doesn't have a name. Ball pythons were Lance's before. The last two were just adopted because they have special needs. Hannah's horse is Diamond, because diamonds are a girl's best friend. Over the years, there have been many, many foster babies who have found wonderful forever homes, thanks to Hannah. Some notable ones include a tiny kitten who didn't even have its eyes open, bottle fed it every two hours for a few days until it could be placed with a kitten rescue, two bearded dragons who were left in a very small critter keeper behind stuff on a shelf at the pet store. They were in bad shape. Not sure how long they had been there without food or water.

At the first house a woman complains, "I've been a little sick to my stomach."The older doctor says, "Well, you've probably been overdoing the fresh fruit. Why not cut back on the amount you've been eating and see if that does the trick?" As they left, the younger doc said, "You didn't even examine that woman? How'd you come to the diagnosis so quickly?"

There was also the very, very old Chihuahua she found wandering in a store parking lot. It was blind, deaf, and had no teeth. The owner was found. That should cover it. As you know, I am NEVER too busy to talk about my kids, my grand kids, or their animals.” Nor will I ever tire of talking about our new granddaughter. Last week, Malia Mae discovered the humor found in the sound made by the cracking of fortune cookies. Bubble wrap could be next. Halloween Poetry Slam This Saturday night at 7:30pm, the Whidbey Island Arts Council Poetry Slam returns to the Freeland Cafe. Adults twenty-one and over are invited to share in the fun by wearing a costume, or by not wearing one. That did not read right. The Halloween-themed poetry slam includes free gifts for all in attendance. We will create poetry on the spot, after our poets-in-waiting suggest words to be incorporated in our individual poems. If you are in the neighborhood, stop by. Yours truly will co-host. The always entertaining Erik Christensen concludes our fun evening with spirited song and crowd pleasing anecdotes. Bonus–the delicious Freeland Cafe appetizers are all treats, no tricks.

"I didn't have to. You noticed I dropped my stethoscope on the floor in there? When I bent over to pick it up, I noticed a half dozen banana peels and apple cores in the rubbish bin. That's what was probably making her sick." The younger doctor said "Pretty clever. If you don't mind, I think I'll try that at the next house." Arriving at the next house, they spent several minutes talking with a younger woman. She said she just didn't have the energy she once did and said, "I'm feeling terribly run down lately." "You've probably been doing too much for the Church," the younger doctor told her. Perhaps you should cut back a bit and see if that helps." As they left, the elder doctor said, "I know that woman well. Your diagnosis is almost certainly correct, she's very active in the church, but how did you arrive at it?" "I did what you did at the last house. I dropped my stethoscope and, when I bent down to retrieve it, I noticed the minister under the bed." And on that note, let us pray for all treats, and no tricks, during our Halloween weekend. To read past columns of On Track in the Whidbey Weekly, see our Digital Library at www.whidbeyweekly.com.

Bits & Pieces The word is out that the Democrats and Governor Inslee are flirting with a state income tax. Now that scares me. I hope and pray that we keep our 10th District Senator Bailey working for us so that we can afford to live in and enjoy this wonderful corner of the world. Thank you, Barbara Bailey, for holding the line! Lesley Robbins, Oak Harbor

Letters to the Editor Editor, The Truth About Angie Homola? I received some negative mail smearing Washington Senate candidate Angie Homola photo-shopped picture - you know the genre. “Who distorts like this?” I asked. A little byline says: “Government Leadership Council,” which sounds uplifting, but is actually a partisan fund bulging with cash from the Koch brothers, oil companies, big banks, payday lenders and such. This smear benefits Barbara Bailey of course, who it turns out has many of those same supporters! Curious about Angie’s nasty-sounding “record” the mailer portrayed, I did some digging. One typical example: “Before she was removed as an Island County Commissioner Homola voted 13 times to raise taxes, including property taxes.” But her actual record, I found, paints a very different picture. She indeed voted annually, along with her colleagues, for the meager, below-inflation 1% annual tax increases allowed to budgets statewide. Governments need this to keep up with rising costs for asphalt, vaccines, deputy cars, courts, etc. The “property tax” was the Conservation Futures Fund that secures farm and agricultural land, aquifer recharge land, and beach access for generations to come, literally costs a few cents per month, and is overwhelmingly supported locally. Angie’s service record exemplified true fiscal responsibility: she carefully cut 20% from the county’s expense ledger to fix a fiscal train wreck from former commissioners’ budgeting which was almost 100% reliant on building new houses. She preserved services, including reasonable public safety resources. Regrettably, Angie lost a previous election by a handful of votes - which this mailer called “removal” - a phrase purposely made to sound more like impeachment! Such blatant dishonesty by her opponent, plus the facts I’ve found, have convinced me to vote for Angie, who is far more likely to work hard for and be truthful with us. Laurie Riley, Langley

Editor, Seems as if there’s a coordinated letter campaign of hit pieces in the local newspapers recently regarding our 10th District Senator Barbara Bailey. I would invite whoever was directing that poison pen letter writing effort to check out the indisputable record of Senator Bailey’s tenure in the House and Senate. The truth clearly shows her to be a champion for excellence in education, while at the same time lowering state college tuition by as much as 20%. The truth is Senator Bailey is a strong and consistent supporter of family issues, senior citizens, farmers in our heavily rural district, land use and property rights. In addition, our county is host to a large military community, both active and retired. Barbara Bailey has been a consummate advocate for our vets. Fact is, she’s been honored with several awards, including the coveted “Outstanding Service to Veterans” award. Senator Bailey enjoys a reputation for working across the aisle - a gentlewoman. However, when it comes to the budget, raising taxes or financial legislation that is germane to her constituents, she’s a firm, principled effective fighter.

Editor, We have learned much about Angie Homola and Barbara Bailey. Angie is funded largely by individuals and unions representing carpenters, teachers, electricians and the like. Bailey and her PACs are funded mostly by business: big, out-of-state business. Angie believes the science behind global warming and is committed to finding solutions. Bailey gets her positions from the Heartland Institute, a climate denier “think” tank. Angie understands the challenges facing students and will find realistic solutions. Bailey touts supporting a bill making token college tuition reductions. Angie researches issues carefully and is articulate. Bailey looks to the American Legislative Exchange Council for her positions. For years she has repeated slogans such as, “regulatory reform”, “balanced budgets”, and “pushing back environmental regulations“ but offers no specifics. Finally, Angie is conducting an open, clean campaign focusing on issues while Bailey is using negative, smear tactics funded by PACs within PACS – you get the picture - complete obscurity. Angie will bring a fresh, energetic approach to issues. Bailey has been in the legislature fourteen years, is tired and brings no new ideas to the process. Angie’s record of bringing transparency and accountability to Island County government gives me hope that we can take back our government and election process so that it serves the people and preserves this incredible democracy we call home. This is why I will be casting my vote for Angie Homola for state senator from the 10th LD. Chris Richards, Camano Island

Editor, I’m about to relocate to the 10th Legislative District so I attended the October 4th forum at Stanwood High School to get to know the candidates. Angie Homola, a former elected official, demonstrated her total lack of good sense by spouting the usual ‘more money and more laws’ solutions to state problems. In a current TV ad she claims wanting to break Olympia gridlock. She ignored the accomplishments of the recent session including a balanced budget, with a huge $4.6 billion infusion to education and reduced college tuition. She declared that our entire state tax structure is broken. Well – who broke it? We’ve had one party rule in this state continuously for over 30 years – it wasn’t Republicans, Angie. It was your Democrat party. Senator Bailey has been a leader in forming the coalition that achieved the positive results cited above out of a previously dysfunctional Olympia. Additionally, this coalition stopped devastating capital gains and income tax bills from gouging our already thinning wallets. Democrats love to push bipartisanship solutions but apparently don’t recognize it when they see it. I’ve since learned that Angie Homola was not reelected as Island County Commissioner, for good reason. Keep this in mind and vote to return Barbara Bailey to the state senate to continue this forward momentum in Olympia. Connie Munsey, Oak Harbor

Editor, On behalf of the nearly 21,000 public employee retirees in our chapter area, I urge you to vote for Angie Homola for State Senator in the Tenth Legislative District.

Angie has a record of working collaboratively to hold government accountable to policies that protect families, children and the elderly. Her opponent, Barbara Bailey, has a distinct record of just the opposite: her legislative agenda is that of the Koch Brothers and their well-funded cohorts. Bailey would take away pensions of retired public employees; yours and your neighbor’s, who have taught your children in Public Schools, who protect you from crime and fire, who repair the roads you drive on and many others who serve you. My personal experience with Bailey is that she does not want to hear from you if you have a point of view that she does not share. In the past three years that I have traveled to Olympia to meet with Legislators to discuss issues related to retirees, she has not been available to listen to our concerns. Our issues are not her issues and we don’t get the time of day from her.

Progressive Democrat Scott Chaplin of Langley Officially Files as a Write-In Candidate for LD 10, Position 1

Angie Homola has a proven record of keeping government accountable to the people it represents, not corporations or special interests. She will listen to your concerns whether or not you are “on her team.” She is the kind of person who will gather information, study the details, and do the best for the people in the state of Washington and in the Tenth District.

Editor, The concerns and priorities of the citizens of the 10th Legislative District are expressed through their representatives in Olympia and how those representatives vote. Dave Hayes is seeking re-election as one of our State Representatives, but I daresay the majority of the electorate is unaware of his voting record or knows whether his votes reflect their views. As examples of his voting history, he voted against bipartisan legislation to end school districts’ dependency on local taxes while simultaneously supporting special state funding of charter schools; against both raising the minimum wage and providing paid sick leave to employees; against a bipartisan effort to strengthen legislation against animal cruelty; against a bipartisan bill authorizing the study of carbon emissions reduction; against a bipartisan bill to ban the thoroughly debunked “conversion therapy” for minors; and lastly, against automatic voter registration for citizens during commonplace interactions with government agencies. In each instance, his vote was just the opposite of the one that would have been cast by his Democratic opponent, Doris Brevoort. Doris Brevoort, an educator from Mt. Vernon, would bring valuable perspectives to the Legislature. With 25 years as a school counselor and special education teacher with a PhD in Human Science, she knows how critically important it is to fully fund our public schools in an equitable and predictable manner. As a caregiver for a family member with a mental illness, she knows how critically important it is to fully fund the quality treatment, affordable housing, and case management of people with mental illness and disabilities. I am supporting Doris because she represents my views and everything I hope a legislator would bring to Olympia - dedication, hard work, intelligence, integrity and a willingness to work collaboratively across the aisle to address and solve the problems/challenges that we all face as Washingtonians.

Frustrated by the lack of a Democratic candidate for the 10th Legislative District 10 Position 1 race, Island County Democrat Chairman Art Huffine suggested to his organization’s members that they endorse Langley resident Scott Chaplin as a write-in candidate at their quarterly meeting on October 6. Mr Chaplin, who was a Delegate for Bernie Sanders at the State Democratic Convention, was nominated and accepted their endorsement, and became an officially recognized write-in candidate by the State of Washington on October 18. Acording to Huffine, “Finally we have a Democrat to vote for in the 10th LD Position 1 race someone who will promote a green economy; with peace and justice for all.” Mr. Chaplin, whose career has spanned from grassroots organizing for Greenpeace, to serving on a White House Office of Science and Technology panel looking at the potential impacts of climate change, was twice elected to a local city council in Colorado. He now resides in Langley where he is working on a book about climate change, sustainability and governance; and is also serving as a campaign manager for Democrat Doris Brevoort, who is running for the 10th LD Position 2 seat. “If I am elected to the LD Position 1 and Dr. Doris Brevoort is elected to the LD Position 2, we will be the greenest team this state has ever seen - and she will be one of the most highly educated Representatives at the State House, “ Chaplin states. In addition to the Island County Democrats, Mr. Chaplin’s campaign has also been endorsed by South Whidbey for Bernie and the Washington Progressive Voters Guide. He will also be seeking and expects to receive endorsements from the Skagit County Democrats, the Snohomish County Democrats and other related groups. In summarizing his platform, Chaplin states: “I am a Progressive Green Democrat and will bring a desperately needed Bernie-like perspective to Washington State politics. I would push for a reduction of fossil fuel use and a transition to a Greener economy as quickly as possible, with no net increase in fossil fuel infrastructure. I believe that there are thousands of good union jobs that can be created with the Green economy. I will push for increased investment in education, public transportation, healthcare and infrastructure projects that promote economic and environmental sustainability. I will strive to get corporate and special inter-

est money out of politics; and make our democratic process more accessible to all Washington citizens. As a society, we should be showing greater respect for Tribal Nations and minorities.

Washington State should strive to become a friendly state for the GLBTQ community and lead the nation/world in this area by creating an annual “Equity Day” for the State government where legislators and others come together to see how well we are doing on certain issues and what areas need more attention.

Whidbey Children’s Theater Kicks Off 35th Anniversary Season with The Secret Garden November 11 marks the first performance of the 35th Anniversary Season at Whidbey Children’s Theater with opening night of The Secret Garden, a musical adapted from the Frances Hodgson Burnett book by Tim Kelly and Bill Francouer. The robust season, titled Do You Believe in Magic? includes three musicals, two high school blackbox productions, and one mainstage play for all ages. “The Secret Garden,” says Director and WCT Artistic Director Kathryn Lynn Morgen, “is a sweet and emotional start to the season. These actors are learning greater nuance and depth of character, I’m asking more of them than usual with this story of crisis and healing.” Mary Lennox is sent to live in England after her parents die in India. Misselthwaite Manor turns out to be a gloomy fortress. Her uncle is rarely home and his young son, Colin, never leaves his room, convinced he’s an incurable invalid. Mary discovers a strange walled garden that has been locked up for years. With the gardeners apprentice, Dickon, a lad who can talk to the animals, Mary coaxes the garden back to life. The garden seems to have a wonderful, magical effect on all who come into it, allowing Mary to help restore Colin to health and a reunion with his father. “We are focusing a lot on movement and transition, how these things affect our demeanor and physicality as a character. I think families will enjoy the smooth pace, and simple, yet rich staging of our show.” Morgen remarked. The Secret Garden opens on Friday, November 11 and runs Friday through Sunday for two weekends, closing on Sunday, November 20.

The cooling weather and the colors of fall inspired Whidbey Life Magazine to bring you a trio of articles about Whidbey’s Way with Wool. You’ll meet 4 artists and learn about their diverse takes on fleece and the unique character of the animals who provide it. Anyone who’s ever wondered about how fleece becomes fiber will be fascinated by the story on The Abundant Earth Fiber Mill. Two stories highlight iconic Whidbey Island structures--a photo essay on Deception Pass Bridge and an article on efforts to preserve our heritage barns. And there’s much more, from oyster farming to a family full of artists and a couple who are realizing their dream by offering delectable food in an airplane hanger. Pick up a copy at a local retailer. You’ll find Whidbey Life Magazine in some of your favorite shops and stores island-wide. This highquality, 68-page full color magazine is created by talented Whidbey writers, photographers and artists with the goal of sharing the best our beautiful island has to offer. Whether you’re a local or a first-time visitor to our fair isle, Whidbey Life Magazine give you special insights into island life. Subscribe now and you will be mailed two issues each year—in Fall and Spring. Your $18 annual subscription includes postage and makes a great gift.

Race The Reserve Whidbey Island Filled with historic buildings, forests and aweinspiring views of the Olympic Mountains, the sixth annual Race the Reserve Marathon, Marathon Relay, Half Marathon, 10k and 5k will be held Saturday, August 12, 2017. Organized by the Coupeville High School Class of 2018 parents, the event is a fundraiser for a safe and sober 2018 graduation night celebration. The race is set to take runners through the national parkland area known as the Ebey’s Landing National Historical Reserve. Runners will start and finish the loop courses for the races at the Coupeville High School gym, 501 S. Main St., Coupeville. There are four different routes. The 5k will loop around the north end of Ebey’s Landing. The 10k begins with the same route as the 5k, but extends the loop around the prairie and coastal bluffs, passing historical farms along the way. The Half Marathon extends the 10k loop, going through Camp Casey, Fort Casey and the cooling trees of Rhododendron County Park. The Marathon/ Relay extends from the Half Marathon route and takes you through the Kettles Trails, across the prairie on the Pratt Loop, behind the landing strip at Outlying Field and down Hill Road where you will have amazing views of Admirality Inlet.

Film Shorts Courtesy of Cascadia Weekly

By Carey Ross The Accountant: The Batfleck (or Ben Affleck, as he is also known) plays a number cruncher on the autism spectrum who moonlights as a vigilante because I guess he was jealous he didn’t get to solve any math equations in "Good Will Hunting."  (R • 2 hrs. 8 min.) The Birth of a Nation: A film about the Nat Turner rebellion and the harsh realities of life in the antebellum South to which we had pinned our Oscar hopes before all was derailed by director and star Nate Parker’s troubling criminal history. (R • 1 hr. 50 min.) Boo! A Madea Halloween: Tyler Perry, the most prolific human on the planet, reprises his role as Madea, who must this time keep an eye on a group of teens all the while fending off ghouls, freaks and things that go bump in the night.  (PG-13 • 1 hr. 43 min.) Deepwater Horizon: I was wondering when Hollywood would get around to turning one of the worst manmade environmental disasters of our time into an action thriller, and now I wonder no more. I’m willing to give this one a pass, however, because it was directed by Peter Berg, the man who gave me both "Friday Night Lights" and "The Last Seduction."  (PG-13 • 1 hr. 39 min.) The Girl on the Train: I read this book– billed as the next "Gone Girl"–in one day, not because it was great, but because it was good enough and I had a day to devote to it. That pretty much sums up how I feel about the film adaptation: probably not great, but it stars Emily Blunt and Justin Theroux and was directed by Tate Taylor ("The Help"), so it’ll be good enough to devote a couple of hours to.  (R • 1 hr. 52 min.) Inferno: Even Tom Hanks, likeable everyman and one of the finest actors alive, is not capable of acting as though he understands why this franchise still exists.  (PG-13 • 2 hrs. 1 min.) Jack Reacher: Never Go Back: Let’s all watch Tom Cruise drop some one-liners, do his own stunts and flash that famous grin and try to forget about all that weird Scientology stuff we learned about him from that HBO documentary.  (PG-13 • 1 hr. 58 min.) Keeping Up With the Joneses: I hereby

dub 2016 the Year of Disappointing Comedies. Movies used to be funny, right?  (PG-13 • 1 hr. 41 min.) Kevin Hart: What Now?: I don’t like standup comedy (it’s a character flaw) and even I think Kevin Hart is about the funniest thing going. This is his standup act as it was performed at Philadelphia’s Lincoln Financial Field–the first time a comedian has ever sold out an entire football stadium.  (R • 1 hr. 36 min.) The Magnificent Seven: Another week, another big-budget remake. This retooling–starring Denzel Washington, Chris Pratt, Peter Sarsgaard, and more–of the classic Western (which was itself a remake of Akira Kurosawa’s "Seven Samurai") is perfectly serviceable. Not great, but not terribly embarrassing either.  (PG-13 • 2 hrs. 12 min.) Middle School: The Worst Years of My Life: When he’s not writing about murdering murderers who murder, James Patterson writes YA novels about awkwardness of adolescence. Kudos to Patterson for coming up with a title that speaks so much stonecold truth that anyone who ever went to middle school can probably relate to it.  (PG) Miss Peregrine’s Home for Peculiar Children: It’s a Tim Burton movie that does not star Johnny Depp, so I have high hopes. Either this film will be a whimsical visual delight that takes place in the kind of world that only exists in Burton’s mind, or a precious, affected jumble of mania.  (PG-13 • 2 hrs. 7 min.)

Channel your inner zombie at Midway Monster Mash By Kathy Reed Whidbey Weekly

It is zombie season once again so break out the fake blood and makeup, practice your best living-dead walk, shuffle or strut and head to Midway Blvd. in Oak Harbor for the fourth annual Midway Monster Mash and Zombie Crawl, to be held this Saturday. Everything gets underway at 3:30 p.m. at the Whidbey Playhouse, where volunteers will once again be doing free zombie makeup for those who don’t want to do their own. Local magician and entertainer JR Russell will be there to entertain and keep all the zombies in line while they wait. Those interested in dressing up as zombies but are doing their own makeup are encouraged to come to the Playhouse parking lot no later than 4:30 p.m. Saturday to participate in the Zombie Crawl, which will begin at approximately 5 p.m.

Zombies will then make their way along the sidewalk from the Playhouse to Traders Village, also known as the log cabin where, from 5 to 8 p.m., there will be children’s games and activities, food and drink for purchase, live music and zombie and screaming contests. This is a free community event. There is no cost to participate.

The event was started by the Oak Harbor Chamber of Commerce four years ago to bring an activity to Midway Blvd. to highlight the many businesses there. The Chamber stepped away from the event this year so volunteers have stepped in with their time and in some cases, money, to make the Monster Mash happen. “I got involved in this event from the start because Abbie Martin asked me to,” said Whidbey Weekly graphic designer Teresa Besaw. Martin worked for the Chamber at the time of the first Monster Mash (as did this reporter) and is currently an employee of Jeff Pleet’s Edward Jones office on Midway Blvd., one of the event sponsors. “She knows I love Halloween so she thought I would like to be involved,” Besaw continued. “I then got Eric Marshall, my boss at the Whidbey Weekly, involved by sponsoring advertising and promotion each year to draw attention to this event. “My participation started small and has grown because I want to see this event grow,” she said. “As a mom, I know kids need fun and safe things to do and teenagers want to do something for Halloween but are too old to trick or treat or too young to go to adult costume parties. This is something they can have fun doing.”  The Whidbey Playhouse has also been involved in the Monster Mash from the beginning.

Uncommon Threads celebrates the beauty of fiber art By Kathy Reed Whidbey Weekly A variety of artists come together on Whidbey Island each year, drawn together by a common thread - a love of fiber arts. The 13th annual Whidbey Weavers Guild Uncommon Threads sale will be held Friday and Saturday, Nov. 4 and 5 at Greenbank Farm. “This is not your average Christmas bazaar,” said event chairman Toni Wade of the Whidbey Weavers Guild. “Uncommon Threads features just about everything you can do with fiber.”

The range of items available is impressive, from yarn to fabrics to baskets to jewelry. All those displaying items must meet required standards, so those who purchase them know they are of good quality.

members, the majority of whom live on Whidbey Island. The group is made up of spinners, weavers, knitters, crocheters and even the farmers who raise the animals from which the fiber comes.

“If it’s not well-made, it doesn’t get in,” said Wade. “And you’re getting a one-of-a-kind, usually. You’re not going to find it just down the road. There may be something similar, but it’s typically not something you’re going to find unless you go to Seattle.”

While the main point of Uncommon Threads is for members to sell their products, the other side of the coin is to educate.

“It’s a kind of entrapment,” laughed Wade. “We want to educate people, so we lure them in, encourage them to try things and then we enable them by teaching them how to do it.”

Wade said even she can succumb to the lure of new and different techniques. “I have to stop myself,” she said. “I see something and I want to try that, I see something else and I want to try that. I’m slowly going over the edge into weaving. And I’m sort of interested in making rag rugs.”

While many may say there has been a resurgence in the popularity of fiber and hand-woven art,

Kathy Reed/Whidbey Weekly The newly arrived P-8A Poseidon aircraft sits on the tarmac at Naval Air Station Whidbey Island. After years of speculation as to whether the base would get the new patrol and reconnaissance aircraft, training for the transition from the P-3 to the P-8 will begin next week.

NAS Whidbey Island welcomes the Poseidon By Kathy Reed Whidbey Weekly

said. “It’s been exciting to be part of writing some of the first processes for the P-8.”

With the snip of an over-sized pair of scissors, a new era at Naval Air Station Whidbey Island has begun, ending years of speculation, anticipation and preparation.

Harrington said because of the state-of-the-art equipment on board, flying the new Poseidon will be less fatiguing and will allow the flight crew even more opportunities to get involved in the mission. That’s not to say he won’t miss the P-3.

The aircraft has arrived, the new multi-milliondollar training simulators are up and running and the transition from the P-3C Orion to the P-8A Poseidon officially begins Monday when Patrol Squadron 4 – the Skinny Dragons, relocated from Hawaii - starts its training.

“I equate it to driving that old pickup truck,” he said. “You’ll always remember that first truck – it had a few dents, but it was your first, it had character. Both of these aircraft have a special place.”

At an official ribbon-cutting event last Friday, members of the media were invited to tour the aircraft and check out the new P-8A Fleet Training Center. Rear Admiral Kyle Cozad, Commander, Patrol and Reconnaissance Group, discussed the important role NAS Whidbey Island will play in the future of the Navy’s mission and the Navy’s commitment to the base. “Today is about two things. It’s about the future of our community and it’s about relationships,” Cozad said. “Our Navy has invested $200 million here on Whidbey Island, $249 million in Jacksonville. When we think about having completed the transition on the East Coast and starting the transition next week with VP-4, this is an absolutely historic event.” Cozad went on to mention the unique relationship between the Navy and the Oak Harbor community. “For the folks in the Skinny Dragons, how many felt welcomed when you showed up in Oak Harbor? This is probably the most incredible Navy community I’ve ever been a part of, and I think you’ve felt that welcome,” he said, continuing to discuss the important relationship the

As mentioned, 70-percent of flight training for the P-8A will be conducted in the simulator. NAS Whidbey’s new 103,000-square-foot fleet training center houses seven operational flight trainers, three of which are already up and running.

Kathy Reed/Whidbey Weekly Lt. Cmdr. Matt Olson, a flight instructor with VP-30, gives direction to a member of the media at the helm in the new P-8A flight simulator at NAS Whidbey Island.

Navy has with Boeing, which builds the P-8s. “Since inception, Boeing has done an incredible job of continuing to work the cost price and delivering a phenomenal product for us today, as you’ll all get to know, and into the future,” Cozad continued. “Unlike the P-3, 70-percent of the training for the P-8 crews happens in this building and the good news is that’s going to make that incredible aircraft last longer and longer.” The P-3C Orion, which the P-8A is replacing, has

been in service since the 1960s, so the Navy is no stranger to making its aircraft last. The P-3 is still at the top when it comes to capabilities. The Poseidon, however, starts its service at an equal capability, but with exponential room for growth. “The P-8 allows us to keep pace with technology as it evolves,” said Capt. Dave Whitehead, commander of VP-30, the training squadron for the P-8A, who led a tour of the aircraft. “This gives us a lot more options.” The Poseidon is a Boeing 737 aircraft frame that has been modified to support the Navy’s patrol and reconnaissance mission. Each detail has been carefully thought out, taking what works well from the P-3 and streamlining its form and function to suit today’s rapidly changing technology, while also using current technology to help optimize the aircraft’s performance and fuel efficiency. Mission cruise stations, as work spaces are called, are “where the magic happens,” according to Whitehead. “In a P-3, each station is unique to the position,” he explained. “On the P-8, we have identical work stations. The difference is how you sign in, so anyone can work from any station. We can process a lot of data and we can connect to a classified server in flight, which means we have the capability to push more data in flight and get that information to the people who need it faster.”

Kathy Reed/Whidbey Weekly Rear Admiral Kyle Cozad, Commander, Patrol and Reconnaissance Group, cuts the ribbon to signify the official opening of the P8-A Fleet Training Center on NAS Whidbey Island.

Lt. Cmdr. Kevin Harrington said it has been exciting to be a part of the transition team for the P-8s. “It’s the same game, but a different machine,” he

Walking into a flight training “pod” is a little like walking onto one of the rides you might find at an amusement park, but far more detailed and complex, obviously. Mounted on tall legs, the trainers provide realistic scenarios and conditions that pilots may face. State-of-the-art graphics can mimic virtually any weather condition mother nature can produce, whether crews are training here on Whidbey or on a model from across the country or around the world. “This simulator matches the aircraft nearly 100-percent,” said Lt. Cmdr. Matt Olson. “It’s a great training tool. We can simulate winds up to 50 knots, we can simulate other aircraft as a hazard to test our collision avoidance systems. We can simulate a multitude of malfunctions, from a bird strike to volcanic ash.” “If we’re using this to conduct 70-percent of our training, it needs to be perfect,” said Capt. Andy Miller, commanding officer of the Fleet Introduction Team. “Our pilots usually do ten flights on the simulator before taking their first flight in the actual aircraft, and they have had no trouble with the transition. The fidelity is amazing.” Two more squadrons are still to arrive from Hawaii. When all is said and done, NAS Whidbey will be home to six active duty P-8A squadrons and one reserve squadron. Each squadron will have seven aircraft. The final P-3 deployment will finish in 2019 and the transition to the P-8A will be complete in 2020. The Navy will have two home bases for the Poseidon – Jacksonville, Fla. on the East coast and Whidbey Island on the West coast. Fleet Air Reconnaissance Squadron 1 (VQ-1) will be the last P-3 Orion squadron to be disestablished in 2020. It will be replaced by VUP-11, which will operate eight MQ-4C Triton unmanned aircraft. Flight operations/mission control for the unmanned Triton will be based at NAS Whidbey Island, but the aircraft themselves will be based elsewhere.

The event also provides an opportunity to develop the makeup skills of volunteers interested in learning more about theatrical makeup,” she said. “Zombie Makeup is a stagecraft skill that we feel can uniquely heighten the Monster Mash and Zombie Crawl experience. This is our special way of participating and actively contributing to our community.”

Wade said it’s really something that has been around a long, long time. The Skagit Valley Weavers Guild has been around for more than 40 years and the Whidbey Weavers Guild was formed in the 1960s, so there is a long tradition of popularity of woven arts. The abundant variety and forms of items available at Uncommon Threads is a testament to that.

There will also be several raffle items to choose from, including opportunities for classes.

“There are hats, placemats, Christmas ornaments, baskets, rugs, garments, silk scarves, kitchen towels, bath towels and all kinds of felted items,” she said. “There are some really talented felters here. There will be spinning demonstrations, people that dye a lot of their stuff.

More than anything, Wade said guild members enjoy sharing their love of fiber art and weaving with the rest of the world.

MIDWAY MONSTER MASH

Hours for Uncommon Threads will be from 10 a.m. to 7 p.m. on Friday, Nov. 4 and from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. on Saturday, Nov. 5. You can find more information online at www.whidbeyweaversguild.org.

BARBER SHOP Kathy Reed/File Photo Zombies of all ages are expected to gather in the parking lot of the Whidbey Playhouse in Oak Harbor Saturday to take part in the fourth annual Midway Monster Mash and Zombie Crawl.

“So far there are four guild members that are offering classes,” Wade said. “So if you’re interested in weaving, you can buy a $1 raffle ticket and maybe get four hours of instruction. There will also be classes offered on felting and basket-weaving, too.”

“I especially love spinning,” she said. “I love that you have this fluffy fiber, and as you spin it, you see it changing into yarn. It’s like magic.”

“It’s a riot of color,” she continued. “If you’re a knitter, the yarn is just incredible. And there’s jewelry of all different kinds of yarn incorporating polymer clay, silverwork and more.”

If you want to join in the fun but don’t want to be a zombie, everyone is invited to try out their Halloween costume early and come directly to Traders Village. Community groups like the American Legion Auxiliary, the Oak Harbor Lion’s Club and Navy Wives Clubs of America will be there with games, activities and food for purchase.

Life Tributes BARBARA ANTONY BERRY-JACOBS Barbara Antony Berry was born July 5, 1946 at Merritt Hospital in Oakland, CA. Parents, Allan and Jane Berry, moved to Grand Junction, CO when Barbara was in first grade. Allan Craig, her baby brother and life’s inspiration, was born in 1954. Their mother gave them both incredible spirit and senses of humor that would last their lifetimes. Barbara graduated from Grand Junction High School in 1964 and attended CSU in Fort Collins for two years. She planned to be a veterinarian, however, in the 60’s the number of women and Colorado residents were restricted for Pre-Vet Medicine. She left college and worked for the family drugstores (Mesa Drug Walgreen Agencies) before finding her dream job with a local veterinary hospital. She also learned dog grooming there. A husband and the US Navy brought Barbara to Whidbey Island in 1969 where she worked at Island Drug before grooming dogs for a newly opened Raintree Kennel. She opened her own shop, Barb’s Grooming Shop, in 1972 at Chimes Corner on Midway Blvd. and thus began her love of the Oak Harbor Community. She divorced in 1981 and in 1987 married her true love, Robert McLean Jacobs. They were destined and made for each other! From 1991 to 1994 the Navy moved them to Rota, Spain for four years of travel and adventure in Europe, a most wonderful time in their lives. They were fortunate to get orders back to their beloved Whidbey Island where Bob finished his nearly 30-year career in the Navy. Upon returning, lifelong friend, Nancy Fey, offered Barb a job at the wonderful Discount Party Store which Barb managed for nearly 15 years. She always said she had two dream jobs: “Dog Lady” and “Professional Party Girl”! Barb was a lifelong charter member of Soroptimist International of Oak Harbor. Bob encouraged her early participation and she dearly loved Soroptimist and its mission to help women and girls and all the wonderful friendships. She was also a member of St. Augustine Catholic Church in Oak Harbor. In 2015 to 2016 she underwent successful treatment for lymphoma cancer. Her Bob and Soroptimists were an incredible support group during those eight months. She thanked God every day for these and other blessings in her life. Services for Barb will be held at a later date. The family suggests memorials to

JOHN LOUIS WHITE It is with a heavy heart we report John Louis White passed away suddenly October 12, 2016 near his home in Coupeville, WA. John was born November 2, 1953 in Eastport, ME. His early years were spent in New England, his family relocating to Goleta, CA in 1969. John graduated from Dos Pueblos High School in 1970. Shortly after graduation, John chose to leave California for the Pacific Northwest, settling initially in Longview, WA. While in Longview, John met his future wife, Katherine Carr. Together they relocated to Coupeville, WA in 1988. His profession as a journeyman carpenter led to very creative projects over his lifetime. Fishing, boating and camping in the Northwest have been his passion for many years. John loved music and became proficient playing guitar, mandolin and ukulele. He was a gifted songwriter, his songs often reflecting life’s challenges in a clever and amusing fashion. John was also a generous entertainer who lit up many a party and small gatherings with his music and unique humor. John is survived by his wife, Katherine “Katie” Carr-White, of Coupeville, his step-son, Shane Mendiola and grandsons, Ian, Wyatt and Dreyke Mendiola, of Longview, WA, his brother Allen R. White and sister, Anne V. White, both of Goleta, CA. He is also survived by his nieces Rhonda and Corrine White, nephews Russell and Daniel Samler, Michael, Jack and Zach White and Michael Andrews. John is predeceased by his parents, John E. and Alice J. White, brothers, Roger M., William J., and Thomas P. White.

John shared his love of life, through his music with many wonderful friends over the years. He will be greatly missed by many. John’s family wish to extend their deepest gratitude to paramedics, nurses and ER physicians at WhidbeyHealth Medical Center who assisted in his care. Services for John will be held through Burley’s Mortuary in Oak Harbor. A Rosary Vigil will be held Thursday, October 20, 2 pm with a funeral mass at St. Augustine’s Catholic Church in Oak Harbor at 9 am Friday October 21, 2016.

ARIES (March 21-April 19) A prime concern this week is how to get more satisfaction from your relationships. Don’t hesitate to be the proactive one on the 27th in your efforts to get matters moving. Clinging to the status quo is unwise on the 31st, when action is needed to avoid the day’s pitfalls. Understandings you lacked before improve personal relations on the 1st. Timely maneuvering is your safety net on the 2nd. TAURUS (April 20-May 20) Taking your worldly affairs to a deeper and more fulfilling level is your primary concern this week. You may feel inadequate to the steps needed to be taken in those areas on the 27th, but it’s important that you take them. Independent thinking is the way around undesirables on the 31st. Your path to security and fulfillment on the 2nd lies in trusting a partner to work independently of you. GEMINI (May 21-June 21) This is a week of growth and understanding in your relationships. The 27th produces improvements in that regard. The 31st finds you able to face some harsh realities about making it in the world that you could not face before. The 1st opens your eyes to your own standing in regard to the outer world. A difficult matter on the 2nd sees a host of developments, some anticipated and some not.   CANCER (June 22-July 22) This week asks that you smooth relations with the people with whom you work most closely, especially your spouse. Satisfaction on the 27th  comes through communicating with them at a deeper and more meaningful level than previously. The path to harmony on the 31st lies in recognizing that which cannot be fixed and eliminating it. The 1st may ask that you renegotiate an emotional contract. Issues of personal well-being predominate on the 2nd.

LEO (July 23-Aug. 22) You can feel better about your life without changing external circumstances this week. In that regard, the 27th delivers clues in your quest for the missing fun element in your life. Your biggest success on the 31st may be in letting ego of what you think you know, long enough to learn something new. The 1st allows you to transform a problem you can’t change outright, by changing how you view it. A different management approach is key on the 2nd. VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22) Facts you wish you had known going in, but didn’t, continue coming up in your relationships and travel plans this week. The 27th presents you with something from that category to be shrugged off, but not forgotten. This grimly satisfying, “I’m older but wiser” approach also carries you happily through on the 31st. Take

LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 22) This is your week to look at the time, effort and money expended in problem solving, with cost-cutting in mind. A simple but often overlooked option on the 27th is to review the problem, on the chance that it’s an opportunity in disguise. The 31st raises the possibility of an obsolete want-list and the pursuit of things you don’t really want. Expecting too much of yourself is a hazard on the 1st and 2nd. SCORPIO (Oct. 23-Nov. 21) You can hold yourself to a high standard of excellence this week and quite likely live up to it. The 27th helps you to make both the successes and the failures of the past year more understandable, which bodes well for your future. On the 31st you can act most effectively in dealing with your failures. Heart-driven mental pursuits are key on the 1st, meaning, follow your passion. The 2nd favors acts of emotional fortitude.   SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21) Events this week prompt a revisit of your reasons for being the focused and driven person that you’ve been this year. True to form, the 27th finds you again testing limits and going beyond them, mentally and physically. On the 31st it’s natural to focus on your past failures, but don’t be too hard on yourself. Your determination level backs the satisfactions of the 1st. A victory on the 2nd is less hollow than it may feel. CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19) As with much of the year, you’re in position again this week to grow and expand by changing old habits, always a slow process. Leverage is good on the 27th to find a deeper level of satisfaction by cooperating with the daily flow of change. Complacency of mind works against you on the 31st, while curiosity opens new doors. The 1st favors revision of what’s not working. The 2nd has its rewards, but it’s no time to rest.  AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb 18) Your issue this week is one of healing the problems and rough spots in your life that arise from your valuables and relationships. Your own unconscious involvement in their creation is visible on the 27th. On the 31st, whether you avoid a pitfall or walk right into it depends on your willingness to follow the synchronicity that would steer you around it. Friends and siblings are your allies in settling an issue you couldn’t solve alone. PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20) This is a great week for doing what all Pisces do best,  which is to mold and transform yourself in accord with changing conditions around you. On the 31st this means conforming to the demands of travel and personal relationships, while still maintaining a measure of control. On the 1st this is not an emotionally satisfying process, but the 2nd grants fulfillments in abundance, and a welcome measure of physical security as well.  © 2016, Wesley Hallock, All Rights Reserved

Let’s Dish! with Kae Harris

FALL-ING IN LOVE WITH SQUASH

Squash is everywhere at this time of year. So many different kinds can be found all with unique features and flavors. The word squash is derived from the Massachuset Indian word akutasquash which means eaten raw. The cold weather gives rise to the hard shelled, tough rind squashes we find in the stores or even at pumpkin patches, and these which are termed winter squash belong to the family called Cucurbita Maxima or C. moschata. In fact, pumpkins supposedly belong to the C. Pepo species of squash which incorporates those soft seeded, soft skinned lovelies we often turn into salads and breads (i.e. zucchini and yellow squash) and call summer squash. It is all a very complex family tree from what I can gather and the very best part about squash isn’t so much their origins, but how to cook and eat them (at least I think so).

I have to say even though zucchini squash is considered the summer variety, I use it year around in a wealth of ways. In fact, tonight I prepared Swedish meatballs for my family and while they spooned the meatballs and cream gravy atop a bed of egg noodles, I mixed mine with zoodles (zucchini noodles). All I do is use a spiralizer to churn out threads of zucchini so they resemble noodles, quickly sauté them in a hot skillet for a couple of minutes, and that’s it. Simple, fresh and easy. You can add seasonings of your choice, or choose to leave them raw as well, the predilection is in your palate. This isn’t the only way I enjoy eating one of my favorite squashes though. I love to make boats out of them. Cut the zucchini lengthwise in half and deseed. Fill with a stuffing of your choice, top with cheese and panko bread crumbs, bake until tender and enjoy! Often, I find myself using ground turkey with taco seasoning as the filling, and after the zucchini boats come out of the oven I spoon a little salsa or salsa Verde on top. It’s a simple meal and the way in which you can prepare the boats is up to you. I like to have freedom of choice in the kitchen, to have the ability to decide how I want to prepare certain dishes and that’s the beauty of squash. It allows you to mold and shape it into almost anything.

Winter squash can be turned into a myriad of

things as well. Pumpkin (regardless of which species it belongs to), when we think about it takes center stage during fall and it seems as though everyone comes under its delicious, fragrant spell. Pumpkin spice latte’s, pumpkin ice cream, pumpkin bread, pie, muffins, soup, cheesecakes, cereals, granola, cookies – you name it and we make like a fairy godmother and turn all kinds of foods from their original state into (no not a beautiful carriage) pumpkin. Aside from carving weird and wonderful scenes into this incredibly versatile squash, we can make a grand meal out of it. What about slicing the gourd and baking it until it is soft, and turning it into a batter for pancakes? Indeed, if you aren’t feeling in the mood for a pumpkin-y breakfast, what about lunch? A winter salad perhaps. Yes, an incongruous sort of medley – a summer squash in a winter dish whose name is more closely associated with refreshing spring or summertime fare. But why not rock the culinary boat a little and make tasty waves in the squash sea? Bake slices of your favorite squash/es along with Brussels sprouts cut in half and when they’re all tender, and cooled, cut the squash/es into cubes. Toss with herbs and spices such as mint leaves, paprika, salt, pepper, thyme, olive oil, garlic, and a little white wine vinegar and you have yourself a winter salad. It is one of the less conventional ways I have prepared my butternut squash and pumpkin, but I thoroughly enjoyed the interplay between flavors and textures. And since we’re in the best season to consume pumpkin, I want to turn my attention wholly to this famously tasty squash. It really is the back bone of fall, and while we all indulge in the much anticipated treats and eats of autumn that make the most of pumpkin, I thought I would suggest a few, lesser known ways it can be utilized. I hope you take the suggestions and run with them, let your creativity speak in the kitchen and make magical pumpkin dishes. Pumpkin and cheese alfredo sauce anyone? Perhaps, sneak a little goodness alongside homemade chicken tenders and cook up some pumpkin fries. Maybe you want something a little smokier and opt for cheesy chipotle pumpkin quesadillas, or even invite in the exotic aroma of a curry – thick coconut cashew sauce simmered to perfection

and served with large chunks of pumpkin and a generous helping of rice.

WHAT’S GOING ON

And for those of us who enjoy a little sweetness, what about trying a pumpkin mousse filled with the richness of cinnamon and nutmeg, accompanied by the softness of whipped cream. It can make a nice change from a heavy pie, to serve individual cups of this fluffy dessert, or if you are feeling really adventurous making your own pumpkin pie ice cream isn’t difficult at all, AND you don’t even need a churn. Using an electric mixer and whipping until stiff, two cups of heavy cream and folding in a can of condensed milk you already have the sweet and delicious foundation on which to build your seasonal ice cream. Graham crackers, pumpkin puree, cinnamon, and nutmeg all get blended into the base cream mixture, poured into an aluminum pan and situated in the freezer to set for at least four hours. What you end up with is most certainly a treat you can pat yourself on the back about and people will undoubtedly praise your talent after tasting it.

Artist’s Reception: Friday, November 4, 5:00pm-7:00pm Show continues through January 2 Rob Schouten Gallery, Greenbank

I hope you make the most of the season’s most well-loved, widely used squash and get really creative while doing so. If you have any unique recipes using pumpkin (or any squash) please send those in. I am including the recipe for cheesy chipotle pumpkin quesadillas. If you try them, tell me what you think of them! Send any and all questions, comments, information and recipes to me because I value anything from all of you, and of course because I’d love to hear from you, so Lets Dish! Cheesy Chipotle Pumpkin Quesadillas 1-¾ cups pumpkin puree (canned or fresh) 1-¼ teaspoon McCormick’s Chipotle Pepper seasoning Or for seasoning use: 1 teaspoon dried sage 1 teaspoon chili powder ¼ teaspoon cayenne ½ a cup of cotija cheese Cheese of your choice (Brie or mild cheddar works well) 8 flour tortillas (the small ones) Mix pumpkin puree with spices. Spray your skillet or griddle with cooking spray or grease with a little butter. Place a tortilla on the skillet or griddle and spread ¼ cup of pumpkin mixture on it. Top with a sprinkling of cotija cheese, and a few slices of Brie/cheddar and cover with another tortilla. Cook each quesadilla for about 6 minutes or until golden brown and the cheese has melted, and remember to turn halfway through cooking. Cut into wedges, serve warm and enjoy! http://aggie-horticulture.tamu.edu/archives/parsons/publications/vegetabletravelers/squash.html http://foxeslovelemons.com/pumpkin-briequesadillas/ To read past columns of Let's Dish in the Whidbey Weekly, see our Digital Library at www. whidbeyweekly.com.
