SPORTS: Wildcats shine at meet. A9

Six candidates considered for parks director Board to hold closed sessions for interviews By NATHAN WHALEN Staff reporter

Olympic View Elementary students Luke Child and Dawsyn Hammer get excited about the animals in Janet Sodano’s firstgrade classroom. The class presented their habitat project to their families last Wednesday.

Frogs, newts and a lot of learning By REBECCA OLSON Staff reporter

First-grade students at Olympic View Elementary School pulled their parents along by one hand last Wednesday, and used the other hand to point out fire-bellied newts, firebellied frogs and a leopard gecko in their own classroom. Even better than showing their parents and siblings their latest school project is that they get to take part of it home. Brian Knoll, owner of Island Pet Center, made mini aquariums for each of the students and they will bring home their own pet fish. “When we were talking about fish today, a couple said really excitedly, ‘My first pet!’ and I think that’s really cool,” said Janet Sodano, first-grade teacher. Sodano applied for a $1,500 grant from the Oak Harbor Education Foundation to fund this habitat project, a hands-on approach to teaching the state standards of science. All three first grade classes joined in, totaling nearly 75 students. “Every penny of it is going to Island Pet Center, so we’re doing our part supporting the local economy,” Sodano said. Knoll built three unique habitats and supplied the corresponding critters, which rotated between the three

Olympic View Elementary student Adrionna Ferrara was among first-graders who learned about habitats with the help of animals from Brian Knoll, owner of Island Pet Center. classrooms over seven weeks. Knoll will bring them back year after year so each class can benefit. The purpose of the project is to teach students why different animals need to live in different habitats, and also to educate children about having pets. But the learning doesn’t stop there. As the students take home their new pet fish, they are required to keep a journal about what the fish does, a task especially important as spring

break approaches. “It’s something really hands-on,” Sodano said, adding that it’s a way to integrate science and writing. “I think it’s important for them to learn education isn’t just something that happens out of a book,” Sodano added. Another important aspect was that parents and siblings were invited into the classroom to learn about See Habitat, A3

Months after its director retired, the North Whidbey Parks and Recreation District leaders have winnowed the pool of candidates being considered for a replacement. The five-member elected board will hold two executive sessions in mid-April to interview six candidates for the position previously held by Craig Carlson, who resigned his position Dec. 31. Ron Rhinehart, president of the North Whidbey Park and Recreation District board of commissioners, said approximately 20 people applied for the job and he was pleased with the strength of the pool of candidates who submitted applications. The elected board met in executive session in midMarch to reduce the number of candidates who will be interviewed next month. Rhinehart declined to name the candidates, but said they all have experience leading parks districts as well as possessing skills in financing and grant writing. The search drew candidates from Whidbey Island along with candidates from across the country. Carlson, who had planned to retire in the spring, pushed the date up to the end of December citing personal and medical reasons. He had been director of the North Whidbey Parks and Recreation District for more than eight years. The taxpayer-support-

ed district primarily supports the John Vanderzicht Memorial Pool, which has enjoyed success during Carlson’s tenure with leaders seeing the number of swimmers using the pool more than double. The elected board can meet in executive session to interview and discuss the qualifications of candidates for appointed positions. The elected officials are required to open the meeting to the public when they vote on who to hire. If the position had been an elected seat, then the commissioners would have to conduct interviews and make a decision in a public forum, according to the Washington State Attorney General’s website. Rhinehart said that, should the two days of interviews go well, the commissioners will go into open session and vote on who to hire for the job. He said that the past several months have been bumpy for the North Whidbey Parks and Recreation District as they continue to operate without a permanent executive director. He complimented the efforts of Neil Romney, who is the coach of the Aquajets swim team, for his work as interim director. The executive sessions will take place April 11 and 12 at the pool. The earliest a decision could be made would be the evening of April 12.

O’Connor thanked both Josh O’Connor and Lori Maxim, vice presidents of Sound Publishing, for their leadership and guidance of Sound over the past two years. He also thanked executives Mark Warner and Don Kendall for their work in bringing both the Port Angeles and Sequim newspapers into the Sound group over the past few months. “Gloria is inheriting a group of publishing titles and websites that I think is poised for strong growth given the quality of assets, the health of the marketplace and talented employees,” O’Connor said.

In fall of 2011, Sound Publishing added the Peninsula Daily News (Port Angeles), Sequim Gazette and Forks Forum to their community newspaper holdings.

Whidbey murder suspects trade trial dates By JESSIE STENSLAND Staff reporter

Two men accused of murder have swapped trial dates in Island County Superior Court. Under the current schedule, James Huden will go to trial on July 10 while Joshua Lambert’s trial was moved to Nov. 27. Huden is a 55-year-old man accused in the 2003 shooting death of Russel Douglas on South Whidbey. Lambert is a 31-year-old homeless man accused of stabbing to death both of his grandfathers on North Whidbey last October. At a hearing Monday, Island County Prosecutor Greg Banks explained to the judge that Lambert

wanted his trial pushed back in order to give him more time to prepare. Lambert is acting as his own attorney and is putting on an insanity defense. Banks said he agreed with the rescheduling of the trial. Huden was originally scheduled to go to trial this month, but that changed after he obtained a new attorney. His trial date was then provisionally set for November, but Banks asked to reschedule it for July since the dates were now open. He said Huden’s attorney, Matt Montoya of Oak Harbor, also wants the earlier court date. The attorney for Huden’s codefendant, Peggy Thomas, also preferred that Huden’s trial take place first.

state standards they need to learn for science. It’s awesome.” “The kids are excited,” Wasinger added, which was obvious from the enthusiastic chatter and the crowd of faces around the animal tanks. Student Natalia Aguilar said she’s looking forward to caring for her new fish. She was also happy to show her mom the book each student wrote and illustrated, entitled “A Place to Call Home.” Student Lindsey Latta’s favorite creature was the

Montoya told the judge that he has a “discovery issue” that he’s trying to work out with the prosecutor. He said he wants a defense expert to evaluate some of the physical evidence in the case. Huden is facing a single count of first-degree murder with a firearm enhancement. If convicted, he could potentially face more than 30 years in prison. Thomas, 46, is also facing firstdegree murder with a firearm enhancement. She’s accused of conspiring with Huden and luring Douglas to a rural area of South Whidbey on Lancaster Road to kill him. Prosecutors charged Lambert with two counts of murder in the

They also learned geckos eat crickets, to which Latta responded: “It’s gross.” Knoll came to the family open house, and he’d also spoken with the classes earlier about the animals. “It was a lot of fun. It was a good opportunity to get involved with these kids that are so enthusiastic,” Knoll said.

first degree, one count of kidnapping, three counts of burglary in the first degree, one count of taking a motor vehicle and one count of unlawful possession of a firearm. If convicted of all the charges, Lambert could face more than 90 years in prison under the standard sentencing range. Lambert, an Oak Harbor High School dropout, has been working hard at his own defense, but has had difficulties complying with court rules or understanding certain aspects of the law. He became frustrated when Judge Vickie Churchill denied his motion for a polygraph test earlier this month and invoked his Fifth Amendment rights. He refused to answer ques-

Knoll has worked with Oak Harbor Elementary School for six years on their salmon project, which allows students to watch salmon eggs hatch in a tank in their classroom. He said this first-grade project was much more ambitious but very worth it, especially upon seeing the enthusiasm of the students. “I think it’s wonderful the teachers go above and beyond to do this,” Knoll

tions, leaving the judge at a loss. On Monday, Churchill again ruled on a list of motions from Lambert. She denied most of the motions, but he kept his composure. He made one motion, for example, to replace his standby attorney, Peter Simpson. He said he was upset that Simpson had given him inaccurate information and had spoken for him in court. “I don’t want someone standing here saying things for me,” he said. Churchill said she’s seen no evidence that Simpson has done anything improper. She denied his motion, saying that he doesn’t have a right to an attorney of his choice at the government’s expense.

said, adding that he knows it’s difficult for teachers to find the time to do so, but if the project encourages one student to have an interest in science that they didn’t have before, then the project has more than succeeded. “It’s very important for me to be involved in the community,” Knoll said, adding that he has four

children in the school system. “Business people in this community working together: that’s the beauty of a small community. If everyone in the community could have the chance to come stand back and watch something like this, how would you not want to be involved in that,” Knoll said.

Coupeville schools outline search Fire damages Oak Harbor home The Coupeville School Board will hold a special board meeting at 6:30 p.m. Monday, April 2 in the Coupeville Elementary School conference room to outline the process to replace Superintendent Patty Page. The board on Wednesday unanimously named MacPherson and Jacobson of Omaha, Neb., as the company to conduct the search for a new

superintendent. This will cost the school district $6,500 plus related expenses. The school board will discuss the parameters and timeline needed to find a new superintendent. Page announced her resignation earlier in the month to take the superintendent position with the North Kitsap School District.

A small fire damaged the front of an Oak Harbor home Sunday night. At approximately 9:20 p.m., Oak Harbor firefighters, including an engine, command vehicle and ladder truck, responded to a report of a house ablaze on SW First Avenue. When firefighters arrived, part of the house below the front

window was burning, said Mike Buxton, battalion chief. The family had gotten out of the home when a passing motorist noticed the flames and knocked on the door. No one was injured. The exact cause of the fire is under investigation, but it appears it was unintentional, Buxton said.

Get a ride on Coupeville’s ‘data carousel’ Parents, staff and residents living within the Coupeville School District are invited to participate in a “data carousel” to help analyze information about demographics, class sizes and assessment results to better understand what’s working and what challenges exist. Two meetings are scheduled for the data carousel.

The first is from 6:30 to 8:30 p.m. Wednesday, April 18 in the Coupeville Middle and High School Commons. The second is from 6:30 to 8:30 p.m., Wednesday, May 2, in the same location. You must attend the two hours on both dates. For information, contact jwodjenski@Coupeville.k12. or 678-4522 by April 9.

County settles meth car search By JESSIE STENSLAND Staff reporter

Island County settled a federal lawsuit this month with a former used-car dealer who claimed a health inspector improperly conducted tests for methamphetamine residue and forced him to destroy 22 cars. Guy Bogdanovich, an Olympia attorney representing the county, said the case was settled for $112,500 after the parties went through a mediation process. He explained that neither side is admitting any liability or wrongdoing, but that the county settled to avoid litiga-

tion costs that would likely be in excess of the settlement. “We were able to settle for a fraction of the original claim,” he noted. Oak Harbor resident Mark Brown and his wife originally filed a claim with the county for more than $5 million in damages. Later, the lawsuit was filed in Snohomish County and then in federal court. Brown, who is not related to the sheriff of the same name, owned the former car lot, O&J Sales, on Ault Field Road. The lawsuit claimed the county, the county public health department and an environmental health special-

ist violated the couple’s constitutional rights and acted with negligence by conducting flawed testing and unfairly closed the business. Also, the lawsuit alleges that the environmental health specialist defamed the Browns and damaged their reputations in “written statements.” Trouble started when deputies raided the business in March 2009. They arrested Brown’s son, who managed the car lot, for possession of methamphetamine and seized a large amount of the drug. After the arrest, the health department tested a building and three cars for meth residue. Officials temporarily shut down the dealership after tests came back positive.

Page A5

All 61 cars on the lot were tested and 29 came back as contaminated. Brown ended up having 22 cars, valued at nearly $70,000, hauled away and crushed because decontamination was too expensive. The lawsuit claims that the testing was inaccurate and that there was no evidence that the contamination levels represented a health risk. “The protocol utilized to

The lawsuit also claims that the public health officials invalidated appropriately obtained test results and refused to release uncontaminated property to the owner. The complaint alleges that Brown’s property was stolen and vandalized while it was in the county’s control, but health officials barred deputies from access to the property to investigate.

determine the risk allegedly involved in the presence of methamphetamine was not accurate, not based upon a representative comparability of known risks, and was otherwise arbitrary,” the lawsuit states. The lawsuit states that the decontamination standard applied by public health officials was “arbitrary and without justification.”

A great race in the 10th District One of the most interesting political races in state government will take place this fall in the 10th Legislative District, which includes all of Island and parts of Skagit and Snohomish counties. On one side we have Sen. Mary Margaret Haugen, D-Camano Island, whose job title seemingly contains the word “powerful,” as she is often referred to as chairwoman of the powerful Senate Transportation Committee. Haugen was first elected in 1982 as a State Representative and then moved up to the Senate in the election of 1992. She has the experience advantage over her 2012 challenger, Rep. Barbara Bailey, R-Oak Harbor. But Bailey has been around plenty long enough to know the lawmaking ropes, having first been elected in 2002. As Haugen finishes her 30th year in office in 2012, Bailey will be finishing her 10th. Bailey has always been part of the minority in the Legislature, which is dominated by Democrats. She can’t claim having spearheaded any major legislative victories or landed any economic development plums for Island County. That’s really not possible from a minority position. But neither does it translate into lack of supporters in her district. In fact, in Haugen’s last two election, 2004 and 2008, she has attracted fewer votes than Bailey. True, they weren’t running against each other and there were many variables, but the hard numbers show that in 2008 Haugen received 21,444 votes while Bailey collected more at 21,675. Four years earlier, the totals were Haugen 19,789 and Bailey 20,399. They beat their respective opponents, but the numbers suggest Bailey will be a very formidable opponent for Haugen in 2012. One further advantage for Bailey is the recently completed legislative redistricting. The 10th District gained a few thousand Republican-leaning voters in Skagit County, and that’s not good news for Haugen. Bailey saw her chance to move up the legislative ladder and grabbed it. Haugen has been a powerful force for good in Island County over the decades, particularly in funding highways, ferries and public transportation districts. Bailey has spent the years preaching for less spending in almost all areas of government and fewer taxes, and her voting record generally shows she means business. It’s impossible to predict an outcome, but 10th District voters, whether Democrat of Republican, will have a fine candidate to side with in November. That’s exactly the way the system should work.

Letters to the editor How to help save native bats

My name is Callum Cassee and I am 9 years old and I want to so something for all bats. Yippee! It’s the year of the bat! But bats in North America really need our help! In the last few years, White Nose Syndrome (WNS) has killed more than 5.7 million North American bats. WNS is a disease that causes bats to wake up in the middle of winter when they’re hibernating and go in search of food. Because it’s the middle of winter bats either freeze or starve to death, because there’s no food around. Scientists believe that one million bats eat 700 tons of bugs per year. Isn’t that amazing! Insect-eating bats protect our crops from bugs and save us from having to use chemicals in our gardens. Imagine what it would be

like with all those extra bugs flying around with no bats to eat them! On April 10 and 14 in Portland, Ore., Dr. Chris Hein, conservation scientist for Bats Conservation International, will be giving two talks about the biology, behavior and benefits of bats. And for more information on ways to help bats go to www. Remember this is your chance to donate love to North American bats. Cassum Cassee Coupeville

Pay attracts best teachers Why is it that in our society, we believe in competitive pay in business and industry, but not necessarily in our schools? Mr. Bill Burnett’s recent Sound Off advocates cutting teachers’ pay to the point that Oak Harbor would be the lowest paying school district in the state. Does he really think that makes for better schools? We are teachers at Oak Harbor High School, each of us in our early teaching years and each of us pouring heart and soul into our classrooms to help kids grow as life-long learners. Together, we’re responsible for our phenomenal high school choirs, our state champion culinary team and our innovative robotics program. And the truth is, if Mr. Burnett had his way, not one of us would be here. Like in business, no one is drawn to work for the lowest pay in the field. Oak Harbor is a wonderful and supportive community. We can testify to the many ways this community helps our schools and our programs. But keep in mind, we would never have been drawn to Oak Harbor if it did not offer competitive pay compared to other communities in the area. In most cases -– especially when you

Letter to the editor Cemetery questions demand answers I am commenting about the disturbing conduct of the Island County Cemetery District 1 commissioners. I attended two separate meetings of the Cemetery District. The first meeting was to get acquainted with how the cemetery was being run and who I might be dealing with in case of my own demise. At the first meeting, the then-chairman stated that the job of the commissioners was to oversee the financial aspect of the cemetery but the actual running of the cemetery was left to Michael Dougliss. During the meeting when discussing expenditures the commissioner stated that no permission of the commissioners was needed for expenditures less than $100. The meeting was non-

have college loans to pay -– you accept the best offer. Oak Harbor does not offer a Cadillac plan to teachers. Pay and benefits here are about average; slightly more than Coupeville and South Whidbey, quite a bit less than Anacortes and Mount Vernon. Not a penny of that is “gifted” (as Mr. Burnett claims). Every penny is more than earned. We put in the hundreds of extra hours needed for kids to get the best hands-on training and to be visible in the community whenever possible. Our choirs are on stage, at community events, and even in the streets in full zombie dress. Our culinary program is second to none, with Wildcat Catering often called upon to provide culinary treats at special events. Robotics Club is an afterschool activity, offering $15 million in scholarships and guaranteed job consideration from employers. All these things require time freely given by teachers willing to go way beyond any normal workday. Here are a few levy facts that Mr. Burnett got wrong. First, the local levy is not

eventful; however, I was not impressed with how the commissioner communicated with the folks who worked at the cemetery. I also attended the second meeting where Mr. and Mrs. Dougliss and worker Dave were told they had been placed on administrative leave without pay indefinitely. I have worked in the public sector prior to retirement and had never heard of someone put on leave without pay indefinitely. The acting chairperson dodged all questions by those in attendance either by saying she had no comment or that she was told not to discuss employee situations publicly. According to your article, the people at the audit department did not provide legal advice. If that is a true statement, the acting chair made up the excuse so as to not answer any questions. Mr. Dougliss advised her that she had his permission to discuss it openly since he would like to know. Evidently, the day the cemetery crew was asked to turn in their credit cards, keys and any

more expensive here due to large tracts of federal land. It is far less expensive. In fact, Oak Harbor has one of the lowest levies in the state. On average, other communities pay four times more than Oak Harbor for schools. Impact Aid helps make that possible. But even combining Impact Aid and the local levy, Oak Harbor does not come close to the state average. (Again, Mr. Burnett is wrong). Even combined, we are $600 per student below the state average and we provide far less to our students than other military communities. We love Oak Harbor. Each of us is grateful to be working with these kids, in this wonderful high school, and in this community. We feel it’s important, however, to keep a little perspective on how we fit in with the rest of the region and the state. We may be on an island, but acting as if we are isolated from others would be a big mistake.

other property of the cemetery, the locks were changed and the place was closed. No explanation has been provided as to why these long time residents have been treated the way they have been. It would seem that anyone who has worked at the same place for over 13 years, and in the case of Mrs. Dougliss 23 years, who has increased revenue, and maintained the cemetery in such excellent shape should be treated with such disdain. Maple Leaf Cemetery is a public cemetery and more people should be involved in the decision making. For the commissioners to put on leave without pay for an indefinite period of time the very folks who have brought the cemetery from almost nothing to the beautiful place it is today is not in the public’s best interest. I urge all of you who have loved ones buried in this cemetery to come to the next public meeting on April 9 and demand the answers we all want to know. D. McNeely Oak Harbor

Track: ‘Cat boys win, girls split; Wolves finish 4th By JIM WALLER Sports editor

Grabbing eight firsts, the Oak Harbor High School boys track team swept a double-dual meet in a windy, rainy Wildcat Memorial Stadium Thursday. In other track action, the Oak Harbor girls split their meets and Coupeville’s Madison Tisa-McPhee recorded the only win for the Wolves in a four-team meet at King’s Thursday. Oak Harbor The Oak Harbor boys defeated Mountlake Terrace 91-54 and Glacier Peak 92.352.7; and the Wildcats girls split, topping Terrace 99-42 and losing to GP 88-58. Seven different Wildcat boys won individual events: Cody Hernkind (100, 12), Josiah Miller (200, 23.05), Josh Schrum (800, 2:01.9), Matt Reith (1,600, 4:44.91), John Rodeheffer (3,200, 10:15.6), Dayne Herron (shot, 45) and Josh McVey (pole vault, 10-06).

Come early for appetizers and refreshments. Playhouse doors will open at 7 p.m. “The Curious Savage,” by John Patrick, is a comedy about wealth, money and what it means to be a family.

They have committed her to a sanatorium hoping to bring her to her senses.

Community members and BBBS supporters are invited to come and enjoy the play and intermission refreshments sponsored by BBBS board membership. Supporters are also encouraged to donate $25 to allow a Big or Little of the Big Brothers Big Sisters program to attend the event. “This is the second year that we are getting a sneak peak performance of the wonderful work our local

Faith in God can’t be unplugged FAITHFUL LIVING By Joan Bay Klope

“I wonder how the nutrition is rated on this cereal,” my daughter inquired one day this week as we shopped together. A quick scan of the bar code with my iPhone provided the information we wanted and helped us make our purchases. The phone I used as a child was attached to the kitchen wall. Our television was a small black and white model we had to manually control. Romper Room and Captain Kangaroo were my programming choices and there were no DVDs, Xbox live headsets to hook up and certainly no reality cable shows. The good family car was a Ford Falcon, which had no air conditioning, much less XM Radio. We played records on a hi fi stereo system, recorded treasured family moments using large video cameras and did not experience the pleasure of diving into a nice hot bag of microwave popcorn until my teen years. My husband’s high school graduation gift was a coveted handheld calculator, and I was among the last group of undergraduate English majors to type each paper on an electric typewriter. We lived without telecommuting, Twitter and Words with Friends. My family’s set of Encyclopedia Britannica took up an entire wall. Today, we travel the Internet to view original manuscripts and watch servicemen surprise their children as they return from deployments. Yet, I can’t live in this world without God. That’s because faith in Him can never be unplugged. And one of the best ways to grow faith is to examine the character of God. Here’s what I know, based on what is explained in the Bible: God is unchangeable. “Every good and perfect gift is from above, coming down from the Father of heavenly lights, who does not change like shifting shadows.” (James 1:17) God is almighty. “For nothing is impossible for God.” (Luke 1:37) God is faithful. “Because of the Lord’s great love we are not consumed, for his compassions never fail. They are new every morning; great is his faithfulness.” (Lamentations 3:22-23) God is good. “Give thanks for the Lord, for he is good. His love endures forever.” (Psalms 136:1) God is forgiving. “If we confess our sins, he is faithful and just and will forgive us our sins and purify us from all unrighteousness.” (1 John 1:9) God is loving. “For God so loved the world that he gave his one and only Son, that whoever believes in him shall not perish but have eternal life.” (John 3:16) God is merciful. “But because of his great love for us, God who is rich in mercy, made us alive with Christ even when we were dead in transgressions— it is by grace you have been saved.” (Ephesians 2:4-5) God is creative. “How many are your works, O Lord! In wisdom you made them all; the earth is full of your creatures.” (Psalm 104:24) The seasons change, the kids grow, gas prices rise, parents go out to sea, technology infiltrates our daily routines. God draws near, as always. Steady. Unchanging. Loving. Present.

All prices in ad based on rarity and condition

During the past few years, low interest rates, war and uncertain stock market performance combined to push prices of gold and silver to their highest levels in 25 years. We have studied the investment and retail markets for decades, and in the past during times of economic uncertainty (which is deepening now), there have been dramatic price declines in many areas of the jewlery, gold and retail markets. Which is why this may be the best time in decades for you to sell for some of the highest prices ever.
