Sheriff takes Election over after deputy jailed By Jessie Stensland Staff Reporter

A deputy with the Coupeville Marshal’s Office was arrested Friday in connection with a 2007 incident in which he allegedly handcuffed his former girlfriend on the side of a dark road during a fight, according to an Oak Harbor police report. Hodges Gowdey III, a well-known and longtime deputy marshal, appeared in Island County Superior Court Friday afternoon, shackled and dressed in an orange jail outfit. Judge Vickie Churchill found that probable cause existed to hold him in custody on suspicion of unlawful imprisonment and witness tampering. She set his bail at $30,000 at the request of Prosecutor Greg Banks. Gowdey later posted bail. As of Tuesday, no charges had been filed. Gowdey, 44, was placed on paid administrative leave from the marshal’s office. He was the last remaining deputy in the department, which is being taken over by the Island County Sheriff’s Office on March 1. As a result of the loss of Gowdey, Coupeville Marshal Lance Davenport asked the sheriff to immediately begin policing the community. Sheriff Mark Brown agreed. The allegations against Gowdey arose from a background investigation conducted by Undersheriff Kelly Mauck. Under state law, Gowdey was guaranteed a job with the sheriff’s office, pending the outcome of the background investigation, when it took over the marshal’s office. Gowdey submitted his letter of intent Jan. 30. Coincidentally, Mauck had conducted an internal investigation for the Coupeville marshal in 2007 after witnesses heard him and his girlfriend having a loud argument outside the marshal’s office — while he was on duty, according to the police report. So when Mauck started the background investigation this month, he looked into the old case and developed additional information. The investigation was then passed to Detective Sgt. Teri Gardner with the Oak Harbor Police Department for a possible criminal case. The woman claimed that Gowdey went after her in his patrol car on the night of the fight. She said he called her on her cell

Voters approving Coupeville levies By Nathan Whalen Staff Reporter

Central Whidbey voters gave Coupeville schools two thumbs up Tuesday. Two levies proposed by the Coupeville School District appear to be passing with the approval rates over the 60 percent mark. “We’re very happy and thrilled that it passed,” said Superintendent Jim Shank, Tuesday night shortly after the initial results were released by the Island County Auditors Office. He added that he’s grateful for the support the community has given the school district. The first levy, which is a maintenance and operations levy, is passing with 63.39 percent voter approval. The operations levy will bring in $2.24 million a year for the next four years. It helps pay the salaries of additional teachers, para-educators, a school nurse, counseling, instructional materials and more. The levy will cost a home owner and estimated $1.14 per $1,000 assessed property val-

ue, according to the school district’s website. The technology levy is also passing according to information from the auditor’s office. According to the initial count, 62.58 percent of voters approved the technology levy. That levy will give the school district $300,000 a year for the next four years to help pay for technology upgrades. That levy will cost a homeowner an estimated 15 cents per $1,000 assessed property value, according to the school district’s website. Of the more than 7,000 ballots mailed out to voters late last month, the Island County Auditor’s Office received 3,278, with a cur-

rent turnout of 45.45 percent. Both measures had to pass with a 50 percent simple majority. Elections officials will continue to receive ballots from the mail-in election in the coming days. Those ballots have to be postmarked by Feb. 11 in order to be counted. The auditor’s office estimates it has an estimated 200 ballots left to be counted as of Tuesday evening. The auditors office is scheduled to release an updated count by the end of business day Thursday. The results aren’t official until the auditor certifies the election, which will take place Feb. 25.

phone and told her to pull over on the side of Madrona Way, which she did, Gardner wrote. Gowdey allegedly screamed at her to get out of the car and punched the car, leaving a dent. She told him that she “couldn’t take it” and she might as well drive off the road. Gowdey allegedly pulled

her out of the car and took her to the trunk. Gowdey then “leaned her over the trunk like she was being arrested, and handcuffed her, telling her that since she was suicidal, he was taking her into protective custody,” Gardner wrote. He let her go after 10 minutes. The woman said Gowdey later told her he was being investigated and that she would

be interviewed. She claimed that he coached her not to say anything about the Madrona Way incident and not to volunteer anything, the report states. Gardner also interviewed Gowdey about the allegation. She wrote that he admitted he may have dented her car in the incident, but he didn’t remember if he handcuffed her. Gowdey said he didn’t think she was suicidal, the

report states. Gowdey denied coaching the woman about what to say in the internal investigation. Friday, Banks explained in court that the statute of limitations would have otherwise run out if not for a law that extends it to 10 years for public officials who commit such crimes in connection with a public office. In this case, Gowdey was on duty as a police officer.

COER asks Whidbey land trust to suspend taking Navy funding

Whidbey Camano Land Trust will continue to accept Navy money to acquire land

within Ebey’s Reserve, despite a request from jet noise opponents to suspend the relationship. Citizens of Ebey’s Reserve, or COER, asked last month that the Land Trust cease using Navy funds until the ongoing Environmental Impact Statement on the EA-18G Growler is finished. That’s expected to take about 17 months. COER has criticized the noise levels of the Navy’s touch-and-go operations at Outlying Field Coupeville, which is surrounded by residential homes and shares a property line with Ebey’s Landing National Historical Reserve. COER offered to give a presentation in January to the land trust board about the proposed moratorium on Navy funding, but were denied.

“The board appreciates COER’s offer of an in-person presentation but found it to be unnecessary,” wrote president Lenny Corin last month in a letter to COER member Maryon Attwood. The board voted unanimously to “continue to use Navy funds to accomplish its mission” protecting the island’s natural resources. Corin goes on to state that the nonprofit organization “does not engage in political, partisan or regulatory matters.” Pat Powell, executive director of the Whidbey Camano Land Trust, said that the Navy’s involvement in land trust acquisitions is very small and that the board is unclear why COER made its request. “They made a very big issue out of a very small matter,” Powell said. “We don’t

understand why they tried to involve us in their issue.” Of the 65 projects completed by the land trust since 2003, which involved 7,230 acres throughout Island County, only 247, or 3 percent, included Navy funding. COER President Michael Monson said that his group pressed this issue on principle. “If anyone, they should be the ones taking a side … or doing a little something,” Monson said. Monson said the trust board’s partnership with the Navy is “complicit” in its aim to acquire land around OLF instead of pursuing a new location. While the trust board’s primary purpose is about preserving land, Monson said, their mission also “dovetails with the Navy’s

purpose in taking the land out of the possibility of having people gripe.” The trust board sent COER a two-page document supporting its decision to not “take sides” on the issue, and outlining its mission. “The land trust has, since its inception, consistently turned down requests to ‘take sides’ on a number of highly controversial issues that are not directly related to its mission.” COER responded with its own document, saying that members were “surprised” that the board considered the moratorium “taking sides,” and are “saddened that the land trust has missed the ‘forest for the trees.’” “We were denied the opportunity to make our case,” COER responded. “If the

Your decision not to extend a brief moratorium is yet one more proof of this.” The base is “ideally located for training operations due to the low density of civilian aircraft traffic in the Continental United States” and that OLF is “the most realistic and efficient environment” in which to perform touchand-go training, said Mike Welding, public affairs officer for the base.

We’re not willing to sacrifice our future for Keystone pipeline Editor, “Thou shall not pass!” was the Oglala Sioux and First Nations’ response to the State Department’s determination that the Keystone XL pipeline would not contribute to climate destabilization nor endanger the Oglala aquifer. While admitting that “the total direct and indirect emissions associated with the proposed project would contribute to cumulative global GHG emissions,” the State Department denied that the pipeline would make a difference because “TransCanada would just find another way to ship it.” It conveniently ignores that the costs are 20 times more to move it by rail than pipeline. The logic was so twisted that there was an immediate response within 72 hours of its release with 200 plus national demonstrations decrying it, including one here on Whidbey. Let’s examine the facts. The pipeline connecting the Tar Sands project in Alberta, Canada, with Koch Brothers refineries in Texas will provide a superhighway that would carry 600,000 gallons/hour of toxic, explosive, tar sands diluted bitumen, thereby encouraging the development of the horror of the north, which is now despoiling a huge area of Alberta. TransCanada has a terrible record for safety and spills. While trains do derail, spilling thousands of gallons, pipelines spill millions of gallons, as happened in the Kalamazoo River and to Mayflower, Ark. It threatens the Oglala aquifer upon which eight states and 2.3 million people depend as a source of water. It would provide a few short-term, dirty jobs and massive profits for a very few and delay the transition to a much more job-intensive renewable energy economy. It would be an excellent target for terrorists. How would you protect 1,600 miles of pipeline from a couple sticks of dynamite? Finally, it would encourage a business-as-usual attitude, which denies the reality that climate destabilization and ocean acidification are driven by carbon dioxide pollution. But, what of our moral obligation to the residents of northern Alberta? They are seeing their forests and lakes destroyed, their air and water polluted and land contaminated with methyl mercury making people sick and raising cancer rates alarmingly. President Obama said that he would not approve KXL if it is likely to exacerbate climate change. Well, the pipeline has been called the fuse to the tar sands “climate bomb.” We need to send him a clear message that we are not willing to sacrifice our future to the profits of the petroleum industry. If the President denies this project, it would be a powerful acknowledgement that we must move on from this radical experiment with fossil fuels, whose outcome is now well known. Let’s help him make that decision and get on with the transformation to a world we and our children can live on.

Perfect time to spring OBITUARY into gardening action toni grove sowin ’n’ the trowel As much as it pains the avid gardener in me to be driven indoors by frigid weather or monsoon like rain storms, I refuse to let this often grey and gloomy time of year force me into the doldrums. Instead, I take advantage of times like these to sit down and plan for the upcoming gardening season. I go through my seed collection and thumb through my favorite seed catalogues to create a list of plants I either want to try for the first time or old favorites I’ll definitely want to keep in my garden. Though you’ll get a higher rate of germination with fresh seed, don’t be too hasty in tossing out all of your old – or even ancient – seed packets. Generally speaking, the larger the seed, the longer it will remain viable. But even tiny, old seeds can sometimes still produce good crops. In fact, scientists have successfully germinated seeds that have been radio-

carbon dated at thousands of years old. If you hate waste but you’re still nervous about putting your trust in lettuce or calendula seed that you purchased a decade ago, you might consider setting a small bed aside to throw your old seeds into and see what comes up. This is an especially good way to use up old flower seeds: by allowing a bit of colorful chaos to take place. I’m an avid seed collector, as well as a cheapskate who rarely turns down a free packet of seeds, so I usually have a lot of variety to choose from. This doesn’t keep me from going through bouts of seed lust when the new Burpee, Territorial or Johnny’s catalogues show up in my mailbox, however. I’ll always be a sucker for an earlier tomato or a showier flower. Like those wonderful Tshirts that say “Too many books, so little time,” there should also be a T-shirt that says, “Too many seeds, too little land.” In addition, when I sit down to plot and plan for each coming year, I like to have at hand my worn copy of “The Maritime Northwest Garden Guide” produced by Seattle Tilth. What a wonderful gardening resource to have at

one’s fingertips. Billed as a “Planning Calendar for Year-Round Organic Gardening,” this slim book gives those of us living here in this climate a month-by-month guide for when to sew specific species — even specific varieties — of both vegetable and flower seeds indoors and outdoors, when to transplant, tips on identifying and taking advantage of beneficial insects, composting, crop rotation, pests and much, much more. Some of the tasks “The Maritime Northwest Garden Guide” reminded me to do in January are to start my onions indoors now for transplanting later on. I could also start some lettuce, leeks, artichokes, cardoon, endive and slowgrowing flowers like snapdragons, yarrow or pinks. Later this month I can start carrots, snow peas, fava beans, regular peas, onion sets and my hardy annual flowers outdoors. I could also start beets, spinach, mustard, Chinese cabbage and more lettuce in a cloche. Even if you don’t think of yourself as a strictly organic gardener or you’re not into organic gardening at all, if you want to grow anything from seed in our climate, this book is definitely for you.

Let’s hear it for the good ol’ damp and dark

Harry Anderson Rockin’ a Hard Place I think this time of year on the Rock gets a bad rap. People are prone to use a lot of words that start with “D” to describe it. Damp, dark, dank, dreary, dour, drizzly, depressing. I’ve heard the first two months of the year referred to as “Gray-you-are-y.” Some of us get so unhinged we spend a bundle to stay a few weeks in Congest-a-fornia or Freez-i-zona or Humid-ida to get away from our cold, wet Rock. But, for me, this is a precious time. I see the pussy willows and snow berries forming. Delicate beauty that arrives amid a tough season. I notice new growth on the firs, pines and hemlocks. A darker, more vibrant green that seems to thumb its nose at the icy cold. I enjoy the sound of rain on our metal roof. It’s nature’s pitch-perfect symphony to accompany an afternoon nap. I like wearing flannel and fleece. Nothing else produces that special kind of warmth in chill-to-bone weather. I feel very protected wearing wool socks in bed. It seems just like bedtime-story time when I was a child. I also like the feeling akin to hibernation that we get this time of year. I can sit in my chair and read all afternoon without feeling one bit guilty about un-mown grass or an un-weeded garden or an un-done thousand or more

chores outside. The animals with which we share this Rock know instinctively that this is a time to store up your energy for when you’ll need it, like when that yellow thing-y in the sky keeps shining well past time for bed. We humans seem to think foolishly that we can change the way our body clocks have been wired through hundreds of thousands of years. I say just relax, snooze and enjoy the dark. Here’s something else I really love about this time of year: soup’s on! Can there be anything more satisfying on a cold, gray day than a bowl of homemade soup and some crusty bread? I doubt it. For inspiration on soup-making, I turn to my dog-earred copy of “What’s Cookin’ in Coupeville, Washington,” a compilation of recipes from the women of Coupeville United Methodist Church. I bought the book a few Christmas Bazaars ago at the Methodist Church, and it has become my invaluable guide to how to live a delicious and satisfying life on the Rock. I am especially fond of Ginny Munn’s “Prize-Winning Clam Chowder,” full of bacon, celery, carrots, onion, red potatoes, green pepper, whipping cream, clams and a splash of Tabasco. I also really like Cherry Sigrist’s “Curried Sweet Potato and Lentil Soup,” which includes, in addition to those two main ingredients, some celery, fresh ginger, garlic and toasted coconut. You see, the trick to surviving this season that so many of us denigrate with words starting with a “D” is to respond with plenty of “F,” “R” and “S.” Flannel, reading material and soup.

knew she would make a great addition to the program. I am really glad she participated with us.” Pages deliver mail, run errands, present the flag and learn parliamentary procedure firsthand. Students also try their hand at drafting a bill and engage in a mock session. “My brother did the page program in 2009 and encouraged me to do it,” Bitting said. “I loved getting to meet new people and learning more about the government. I had a great time here and learned a lot.”

Open house scheduled for construction project An open house is scheduled to inform residents about road construction that will prompt the temporary closure of the intersection at Zylstra and Hastie Lake roads. The open house goes from 6 p.m. to 8 p.m., Tuesday, Feb. 25 at the Sierra Country Club located at 2685 San Juan St. County officials are planning a safety improvement project for the intersection that is scheduled to begin in March. Plans call for reducing the height of the hill, construction of retaining walls, drainage improvements, the insulation of paved shoulders, rumble strips and flashing stop signs on Hastie Lake Road, according to infor-

mation from Island County. County officials are expecting to close Zylstra Road between Hastie Lake Road and Cloud Way from July 7 through Aug. 15 while the retaining walls are constructed. Residents living in the construction area will be provided access. The closure will be coordinated with school districts and fire departments to minimize impacts to buses and emergency services. “It will save time and money and should mean less overall inconvenience to the public,” county Public Works director Bill Oakes said in the press release. During the remainder of the project,

one lane will remain open during the work day with some delays expected. The road will be open to two-way two-lane traffic nights, weekends and holidays during the periods before and after the road closure. This project is one of three Federal Highway Safety Improvement Grants that were awarded to Island County. These grant opportunities targeted safety improvements in select areas that had experienced five or more collisions within a half-mile radius within three years.

A peek into the future Elementary school cheerleaders joined high school comrades for a halftime performance Their stature was small but their smiles were big. Coupeville High School cheerleaders of the future performed at halftime of the CHS girls basketball game Friday, Feb. 7. Members of the junior cheer program skipped across the high school gym floor then put on a show for the large crowd, culminating a month of practice. Coupeville High School cheer coach Cheridan Eck said 54 girls took part in this year’s camp, meeting after school once a week to learn the art of cheer. Nearly half the girls, 23, were first-graders. Six kindergarteners, 11 second-graders and 14 girls grades 3-5 took part. The program is used by the high school cheer team as a fundraiser. The high school girls, however, get more than income when helping out at the camp, Eck said: “They learn about themselves on how to give the positive gift of cheer and dance.” “The CHS cheerleaders get a lot out of the experience by working with younger kids,” Eck added. “There’s a sense of pride when a group of children looks at you with this awe in their eyes and you see them get that move for the very first time.” Eck is also considering offering a dance/tumbling class throughout the summer “so these kids have something to do.”

Coupeville girls team jumps into postseason play By Jim Waller Staff Reporter

After splitting its final two regular season games, the Coupeville High School girls basketball team began postseason play this week. The fifth-seeded Wolves (5-9, 9-11) opened the doubleelimination, eight-team district tournament at fourthseeded Mount Baker High School (10-10) Tuesday night; results were not available at press time but can be found at whidbeyexaminer.com/ sports The second round is at 7 p.m. tonight (Thursday, Feb. 13) and the Wolves might have a home game. The winner and loser of the Coupeville-Mount Baker game takes on its counterpart from the game between first-seeded Lynden Christian (17-3) and eight-seeded Meridian (4-16). The top four teams from district advance to the tridistrict tournament. Coupeville coach David

King likes how his team is playing, especially the contributions from the reserves: “The last two-three games our bench, McKayla (Bailey), Monica (Vidoni), Wynter (Thorne) and Carlie (Rosenkrance), are providing us good minutes and getting the others much needed rest. This has been a big boost for our team, and if we continue to play as a team, we will be very competitive against anyone we face in the postseason.” “The starters and Julia (Myers), our super sub, are jelling well on defense and in our half court offense,” he added. Coupeville rounded out the regular season by defeating the Cascade Conference’s weakest team, Granite Falls, 43-20 at home Friday, Feb. 8, and by losing at the league’s strongest club, King’s, 61-37 Saturday. The win over Granite Falls (0-13, 1-18) was all about defense. The Wolves held the Tigers to single digits in every

quarter, leading 10-4, 23-7 and 31-13 at the conclusion of the first three periods. Coupeville took an early 6-4 lead, then the Tigers did not score again until the final minute of the first half. Granite Falls’ first three field goals were three-pointers, and it did not hit a two-pointer until the 2:51 mark of the third quarter. The Wolves honored seniors Amanda Fabrizi and Breeanna Messner before the game, and the two responded by giving Coupeville an offensive lift. Messner scored all six of her points in the first quarter to get the offense rolling, and Fabrizi kept it going by scoring a career-best 20 points. Madeline Strasburg add-

ed six points, Makana Stone four, Monica Vidoni four, Kacie Kiel two and MaKayla Bailey one. Kimmy Martinez, with three three-pointers, led the Tigers with 13 points. Coupeville struggled with King’s press, allowing the Knights to zip to a 6-0 lead and then a 15-9 first-quarter advantage. The press continued to cause problems in the second period, and King’s led 29-17 at halftime. The Wolves settled down in the third quarter and were outscored only 13-12 by the sixth-ranked Knights (14-0, 17-3). Fabrizi and Strasburg each scored four points in the third quarter and Messner added a steal that led to a

fast-break hoop to help the Wolves keep pace. Vidoni hit back-to-back buckets in the fourth quarter but the Wolves couldn’t cut into the Knights’ lead. “If we can minimize our turnovers, the score is a lot closer, and who knows how the ball bounces then,” said King. Defensively, he liked his club’s effort, particularly Kiel and Messner, who each held their opponent to five points

less than they scored against Coupeville in a game earlier this season. Stone tallied six points, 10 rebounds and three blocks; and Strasburg had nine points, five rebounds and four assists. Fabrizi scored seven points, Messner five, Vidoni four, Myers two, Bailey two and Kiel two. Three players scored in double figures for King’s, led by Karly Hubbard with 11.

NOTICE Washington State law requires wood sellers to provide an invoice (receipt) that shows the s e l l e r ’s a n d b u y e r ’s name and address and the date delivered. The invoice should also state the price, the quantity delivered and the quantity upon which the price is based. There should be a statement on the type and quality of the wood. When you buy firewood write the seller’s phone number and the license plate number of the delivery vehicle. The legal measure for firewood in Washington is the cord or a fraction of a cord. Estimate a c o r d by v i s u a l i z i n g a four-foot by eight-foot space filled with wood to a height of four feet. Most long bed pickup trucks have beds that are close to the four-foot by 8-foot dimension.
