includes The Goose Grocer and a Valero gas station. Fernandez’s vehicle struck Hutchinson’s, a 1990s Geo, which was in the intersection and preparing to merge onto the state route. The cause of the accident was unclear Thursday and remained under investigation, Trooper Chris Merwin said. “It was probably inattention,” he speculated. “Speed was definitely a factor.” The impact was so hard that both vehicles came to rest on the east side of the intersection. Hutchinson was extracted by South Whidbey Fire/EMS and Whidbey

The South Whidbey School District Board of Directors are off and running to resurface the South Whidbey High School track. The board agreed to move forward with a revised list of first-year levy priorities provided by the administration at a workshop on Feb. 12. “The bottom line is you need the surface, not a stopgap surface,” Superintendent Jo Moccia emphasized during the meeting. Along with the track, the list includes 31 other projects to complete by the beginning of November on school district properties. The projects are funded as part of the $6 million capital/technology levy for 20132020. The track resurfacing is the big-ticket item for the first year at an estimated $250,000. First-year projects are estimated to total $689,081. Also planned for year one are installation of a keyless entry system at the high school, carpeting for Langley Middle School, South Whidbey Elementary School and South Whidbey Academy, HVAC — heating, ventilation and air conditioning — controls at the middle school, and a new roof at the Bayview school property. Two projects already completed include the middle school football field drainage issue and cafeteria flooring.

COER makes presentation to small but attentive crowd By BEN WATANABE South Whidbey Record Citizens of the Ebey’s Reserve, the group that filed a lawsuit against the U.S. Navy for excessive flights and jet noise around Central

Whidbey, found a bit of support Thursday on South Whidbey. Though the boost it got in Langley was smaller than other visits, such as one to Port Townsend earlier this year that drew 100 people, a handful of the group’s members empha-

First responders work to stabilize Daniel Hutchinson, 57, of Clinton following a two-car wreck Thursday afternoon on South Whidbey.

A Clinton man was transported to Harborview Medical Center in Seattle Thursday after sustaining injuries in a two-car collision on South Whidbey.

Students unharmed in school bus accident, driver taken to hospital Medical condition believed at fault By BEN WATANABE South Whidbey Record An unknown medical emergency forced a school bus driver to stop on Highway 525 in front of the Dairy Queen and Chevron gas station in Clinton on Thursday. Emergency responders and a South Whidbey School District official said the nature of the emergency was unclear. The bus was southbound on the state route and sideswiped a truck heading north. Neither the truck’s driver nor students were injured.

quite alert,” Beck said. Dan Poolman, assistant superintendent for business and transportation, said the bus driver did not have any other crashes or a known medical condition. “He’s been driving buses longer than I have worked for the district,” Poolman said. The school bus sustained little damage from the glancing blow with the truck, and Poolman guessed no repairs are needed. The truck, however, was damaged, including a flat rear driver-side tire. Repair costs are unknown. A total of 18 students were on the bus, which ser ves Bob Galbreath Road, Glendale and the Deer Lake area. Some were picked up by their parents, while others were loaded onto a different bus and taken home.

“They weren’t shook up at all,” said South Whidbey Fire/EMS Deputy Chief Jon Beck of the elementary school students, some of whom were peering out of the bus windows while waiting for another bus or their parents to pick them up. The school bus driver was taken to Providence Hospital in Everett. His condition was not known Friday at press time. When first responders arrived, they removed the driver from the school bus so as not to alarm students as they checked his vitals. Two other incidents — a T-bone car crash in Bayview and a woman who fell from a horse in the Saratoga woods — had tied up South Whidbey’s ambulances, and one was called south from Oak Harbor, delaying the driver’s transport to the hospital. “The driver wasn’t really

Friday hours possible, county says By JANIS REID South Whidbey Record Several Island County department heads say that they could open to the public on Fridays immediately with little to no financial implications. However, some claim the answer may not be that simple. At a recent roundtable discussion of department heads, several stated that they would have the ability to open without additional expenses or staffing. But while the larger, betterstaffed departments could easily open on Fridays, the smaller offices would still struggle. Island County commissioners decided to revise office hours in December 2009 to give employees extra time to finish work after deep budget cuts reduced staff. The closure of departments like planning, public health, the auditor and others has been particularly troublesome to real estate brokers and builders who experience a domino effect of delays as the result of an unissued permit. Mary Engle, Island County Assessor, said that while she would need a part-time employee to be increased

to full-time in order to fully function five days a week, she would be willing to staff the window on Fridays herself if the commissioners changed their policy. “I’ve never been against opening on Fridays,” Engle said. “Half of my staff is already here.” The public works department could easily open on Fridays, according to Director Bill Oakes, because permitting is a very small part of what the department does. Planning Director David Wechner echoed Oakes’ sentiment, but is hesitant to reopen on Fridays because of his department’s current work load. “Planning and community development is fully staffed on Fridays, but that time is reserved for system improvements, problemsolving meetings and most importantly, permit reviews and work that is best done without interruption,” Wechner said. Wechner also pointed out that planning staff, along with other departments, also work Saturdays and Sundays as needed. Public Health Director Keith Higman said that while some of the county’s public

Kathleen Craven kcraven@craveninsurance.com

health offices could easily open five days a week, others would find it difficult because they are only staffed by one or two people. Higman said that the permitting window of the Coupeville offices, which employs 24 people, could easily open on Fridays. The same is true for the Oak Harbor office, which employs seven, and nursing services, which employs four. Higman’s top priority, he said, would be opening the county’s Coupeville office and nursing services on Fridays to allow access to birth and death records five days a week and giving the public access to permits. “These are the services that are most consumed five days a week,” Higman said. Since the shift to four days a week, the commission has been supportive of applying the same restrictions to all departments not required to remain open by law, such as the sheriff’s office and the prosecutor’s office. Higman said the larger question is “should we be a one size fits all, or should we offer additional services as we can?”

Commissioner Jill Johnson said this kind of piece-meal approach might be a consideration down the road, but that she has not given up hope that they may be able to open on Fridays across the board. “I think there is a higher probability that we can get a portion of the county open sooner with limited hours,” Johnson said. “But I’ve not given up on the idea of providing services county wide.” Commissioners Johnson and Helen Price Johnson have both voiced some support for reopening on Fridays but want to see the county’s first quarter tax figures in April before making a decision. “I don’t see a scenario where it would happen before April,” Johnson said. Johnson said that if the tax figures are not positive at that time, the board will likely consider opening on Fridays with limited hours. “I know the real estate industry is picking up… and our hours are hindering that growth,” Johnson said. “If we want to grow our economy, we’ve got to get out of our own way.”

FIRE/EMS ‘Drop-dead’ date set for late boat Six weeks past due, a nearly $500,000 South Whidbey Fire/EMS fire boat remains uncompleted this week. Fire Chief Rusty Palmer told the three South Whidbey Fire/EMS commissioners Thursday night that a few items remained unfinished on the district’s punch list, a document that specified placement and functionality of equipment on the 32-foot aluminum catamaran. North Cross Aluminum, a Freeland-based shop, had

called Palmer a few minutes before the Thursday night commissioners meeting to say they were working on the remaining issues and are awaiting parts. The boat was originally scheduled to be finished and delivered to the district Dec. 31, 2013. Every day the boat was late potentially cost the company $400 per day, as was included in the construction contract. The commissioners, however, agreed to forgo the late penalties at their last meeting upon taking conditional possession of the boat. Palmer recommended Thursday that they reconsider and withhold the final $9,600 payment. “He’s 45 days late, not five days late,” Palmer said of Tim Leonard, owner of North Cross Aluminum. “That’s why we have a contract.” But the board maintained its earlier decision. Commissioner Kenon Simmons contended that keeping the check would not gain the district any leverage over the company or benefit the district. “It would be my opinion, one of three, to give them the check … I don’t think it’s going to gain us anything to hold it,”

Simmons said. The commissioners, at Palmer’s request, set a drop-dead date of Tuesday, Feb. 18, for the boat to be finished. The fire boat was mostly paid for by a $350,000 Federal Emergency Management Agency grant, with the rest coming from the district’s coffers.

TRACK CONTINUED FROM A1

For the remaining projects, school administrators will begin seeking bids and quotes from contractors. Administrators received an estimate and recommendations from Beynon, a national surface installation company, to repair the infrastructure of the track and lift and replace the surface. The estimate includes filling and patching holes in a base layer of asphalt as needed. The administrators chose a blue high-quality material to last 15 years and one resurface material for an additional 5-10 years. High school track and field coach Mark Eager said he was humbled by the board’s decision. He also requested the board look at a two-year project for the track in order to surface an area behind the

field goal called the D-zone. The D-zone is currently surfaced with grass, and replacing the area with track material would cost an estimated $100,000 in addition to the initial cost of $250,000. In a previous meeting, Eager explained the necessity for a new track citing no home meets, injuries and lost practice time for the team. As the projects go forward, administrators will seek board approval at upcoming meetings for work costing more than $40,000. “I think it’s outstanding, I’m so excited to see us get going,” said School Board Director Linda Racicot of the projects. The next school board meeting will begin at 6:30 p.m. Wednesday, Feb. 26 in the School Board Room at South Whidbey Elementary School, 5380 Maxwelton Road, Langley.

Editorial

Re-open county offices on Friday, it’s time Struggling to stay afloat amidst unprecedented revenue losses and subsequent staff reductions, the Island County Board of Commissioners agreed in late 2009 to scale back service by closing select departments to the public on Fridays. It was a prudent move at the time, designed to provide remaining and over burdened employees with a chance to catch their breaths and make a dent in an ever-increasing backlog of work. But that was four years ago; the situation is different now, and the commissioners should rescind this once necessary policy and restore county office hours to fiveday-a-week service. It’s the right time for the county, it’s the right time for the public and it’s the right time for Whidbey Island’s economy. First and foremost, growth and development have always served as barometers of the economy and while recovery from the Great Recession remains slow, rising home values — 2 percent in 2013 — and an awakening housing market are indications that things are getting better. And as several island real estate agents and contractors have recently pointed out, there is sufficient need now to have county offices open on Fridays. Expediting the county’s permit process does have an impact on their businesses and, indeed, the overall financial health of Island County. That consideration should not be taken lightly, especially if such economic hobbles can be avoided, which it sounds like they can. At a recent round table meeting with the commissioners, a host of department heads indicated that they are in a position to restore Friday office hours. It would present some hardship, but it could be done. In general, Island County is graced with exceptionally qualified and experienced leaders. These long-time professionals know their charges and their capabilities well. If they say it’s possible, then the board should take them up on the offer. The commissioners have voiced concerns about the proposal, some related to the cost of hiring additional staff and others concerning the long-term sustainability of such a move. There is nothing wrong with having reservations and wanting to weigh a decision carefully before committing; it’s a sign of sagacious elected officials. But the board should not meditate too long. The public, department heads, and our economy are all saying the same thing — Friday service is possible and it can be done very soon.

Mayor left agriculture out of economic plans Editor, I read with interest Langley Mayor Fred McCarthy’s column in The Record outlining the upcoming agenda for economic development. I fully support the efforts of the city council to work toward increasing and diversifying employment opportunities here on the South End. However the mayor seems to have overlooked a major category of economic activity, namely agriculture. Langley is in the midst of a rural setting, surrounded by farms and parcels of land suitable for agricultural activity. Much more could be done to promote the raising, growing and selling of agricultural products. As the climate changes and extreme weather events affect out of state agribusiness, we would do well to preserve, promote and develop our agricultural potential. Thriving farms and agricultural uses keep the area attractive to

tourists while providing economic gain and food security for the local population. Wouldn’t we all rather continue to stroll past the cattle and sheep on the old Fossek farm rather than a new real estate development? How can we best include this vision of Langley in our future? A few things that could possibly be discussed are: bringing in more training and education for those new to livestock and farming, exploring getting a mobile butchering facility for the island, and promoting the facilitation of an online marketplace for agricultural products. There is already a base of rural agricultural activity here and surely there is the potential for it to grow even more. Sincerely, BARBARA BANFIELD Langley

had many good friends in that area. The last 10 years of their lives were spent in Langley, enjoying the beautiful surroundings and her garden which was her pride and joy. Phyllis will be deeply missed by her family and friends. The family wishes to thank Northwest Hospice for the care they provided during her final illness. Anyone wishing to make a memorial contribution in

Phyllis’ memory is encouraged to do so with the charity of their choice or Northwest Hospice, P.O. Box 1376, Mount Vernon, WA 98273. We will miss you more than words can say, Mom.

South Whidbey survives Nooksack Valley scare By BEN WATANABE South Whidbey Record The Falcons got down, and then they got up in a 74-64 win over the Nooksack Valley Pioneers on Wednesday, Feb. 12. South Whidbey’s boys basketball team overcame a 10-point deficit in the second half, a gasp-inducing knee injury to one of its senior starters, cut the lead to seven points by halftime and took the lead early in the third quarter on a pump-fake layup by junior Chandler Sutton. Looking to run, Falcon senior Brandon Asay won the tipoff and found senior Kale Reichersamer for a quick layup. Reichersamer followed the basket with a steal and a drive to the hoop, but after missing the contested shot, he fell to the court grasping his right knee and yelling. Two teammates carried him off the court — he was later seen walking around but did not return to the game. With nothing to lose, the winless Nooksack Valley squad came out firing. The team scored six three-pointers in the first half and finished and relied on its 6-foot 5-inch senior post Seth Taron to take a 38-31 lead by the halftime break. “They had 38 first-half points,” Asay said. “And that’s not acceptable, espe-

cially from a team that hasn’t won a game all season. “I didn’t want this to be my last basketball game.” Determined to stay alive in the 1A District 1 playoffs, South Whidbey switched its plans from a zone defense to man-to-man coverage, enabling the Falcons to close out on the Pioneers’ perimeter players faster. It worked: Nooksack Valley only hit two more three-pointers the rest of the game, while South Whidbey surged ahead behind dribble-drive layups and spot-up three-pointers. Out of the break, South Whidbey went for broke as Falcon junior Parker Collins drilled a corner three. After trading a couple of empty possessions, the Falcons went on an 8-0 run, including a pair of layups and a free throw by Sutton and a three-pointer from senior Nick French. “We didn’t struggle with offense at any point in the game,” Asay said. “We had to stop them defensively. That’s what got us ahead.” Neither team got ahead for long through the third quarter. South Whidbey seized its chance on a three-point play in the fourth quarter. Falcon senior CJ Sutfin drove to his left, hoisted up a layup and watched it swirl through as he was fouled for an extra free throw, which he sank

Reign soccer club wins state title

Ben Watanabe / The Record

Falcon junior Chandler Sutton blows past a Nooksack Valley defender in a 1A District 1 boys basketball game Wednesday, Feb. 12 at South Whidbey High School. for a 53-50 lead that sent the Falcon student section into a frenzy. South Whidbey was able to extend its lead to double digits in the final two minutes and sealed the game at the free-throw line, going 9-for-12. The Falcons faced a familiar opponent Friday, Feb. 14 in the Friday Harbor

Wolverines. Earlier in the season, also at Friday Harbor High School, the Wolverines won 55-45. Since then, however, the Falcons’ roster has added Sutton and French and found more potency in its offense. Whichever team won that game was guaranteed a spot in the tri-district tournament that begins Feb. 19.

South Whidbey Reign is a state-title boys soccer team. The club won the U-17 boys soccer title — the Washington State Youth Soccer Founders Cup — with a 2-1 shootout victory over TUSK (TukwilaSkyway) Feb. 9 in Tukwila. Whidbey won the shootout 5-4, with all five designated Reign penalty kickers hitting their shots and goalkeeper Charley Stelling saving the first shot from a TUSK player. In regulation, TUSK scored on a header off a longcross pass with two minutes remaining in the first half. By the second half, Whidbey went on the offensive, pressuring TUSK’s defense. TUSK responded with eight defenders in its goal box, but eventually Whidbey’s tactic paid off. Kai Da Rosa slipped behind the defense to take a pass from Bryce Auburn, where Da Rosa was fouled for a penalty kick inside the box. Jeffrey Meier booted in the goal from there with about 30 minutes left in the match. After regulation, the game went into overtime periods that were scoreless, leading to the shootout and South Whidbey’s win. Reign penalty kickers were Meier, Da Rosa, Stelling, Andy Zisette and Kameron Donohoe. South Whidbey’s state champions include Auburn, Anders Bergquist, Coel Cable, John Gibson, Jordan Henriot, Davin Kesler, Lucas Leiberman, Tucker Middlebrook, Lochlan Roberts, Oliver Saunsaucie and Tom Swanson.

Langley becomes scene of the crime for Mystery Weekend By CELESTE ERICKSON South Whidbey Record Come next weekend Langley will transform from the quaint Village by the Sea to a city filled with intrigue as a fictional murder takes place and visitors are eager to get to the bottom of it. It’s Langley Mystery Weekend Feb. 22-23, and this year’s theme is “The Deadly Deed.” 2014 is also the 30th anniversary of what some believe to be the longest-running murder mystery weekend in the country, said Betty Freeman, visitor center representative of the Langley Chamber of Commerce. The weekend-long event also serves as a way to benefit the town, Freeman said, by aiming to attract visitors, bring in business to shop at Langley stores, eat at restaurants and stay at inns. “It’s really a wonderful way to promote the town and have the town work together,” Freeman said. Last year, the event had 827 people registered to participate, including 125 from Whidbey and the rest from off-island. Mystery Weekend 2013 drew in people from as far away as South Carolina and Hawaii, she added. “If we can do a thing like this that’s fun and brings people in, then we’re doing our job,” she said. The rules are straightforward. At the visitor center,

grab a map and notebook. Gather clues found around the city during event hours from participating businesses, the yearly publication Langley Gazette, or even from characters roaming the sidewalks. Analyze the data, and submit your best guess for the chance to win prizes, from mystery books to weekend vacations donated by local businesses. The game is played from Living Green to Whidbey Island Center for the Arts. After a handsome stranger visits town to claim his inheritance and is found dead, the people of Langley search to find who has committed the deadly deed. The story unfolds and many characters are revealed to have an interest in the stranger’s inheritance.

Cast members of Langley Mystery Weekend uncover one of the first clues of the weekend. This year marks the 30th anniversary of the event, which is believed to be one of the longest-running in the nation. The story includes puns and plays on life in Langley by writer Loretta Martin. Martin has been involved in the mystery event for 15 years. When she started as the chamber’s director, it was just a storyline, map and a few characters. But she wanted to take it further and developed a newspaper to connect with the participants.

“It really added to the mystery, people just loved it,” she said. She also began to really develop the characters and

gave them each their own biography. “When I start writing the mystery, I think of the individual people and what they play well,” she said. “And then they start doing all these things in my brain.” Martin has had several returning cast members play characters, including groups from out of the area hat make “crazy costumes” based on the theme each year. “My favorite part is watching the costumes each character comes up with,” she

COER CONTINUED FROM A1

“Our goal is to close OLF [Outlying Field Coupeville],” said Ken Pickard, a member of Citizens of the Ebey’s Reserve. “And we’re going to close the OLF.” Those who attended shared their concerns and stories of jet noise disrupting their lives, even as far south as Bayview — well away from the published OLF flight patterns. “My perception is people down south think they are immune from things that happen north of Freeland,” Pickard said. “You are not immune.” Of the 17 people who attended the presentation — excluding the COER members — not one spoke in favor of the Navy. Some COER members had hoped for a greater turnout from South Whidbey’s liberal demographic. Coupeville resident Jerome Rosen, however, said defying the Navy may be daunting. Having COER continue its fight and visit areas other than Central Whidbey could give those people hope. “This gives people the chance to stand up,” he said.
