Dylan Jefferies of Freeland appears in Island County Superior Court with attorney Jennifer Bouwens Monday.

Polygraph picks up on child porn By JESSIE STENSLAND Staff reporter

A man applying to be a reserve police officer in Langley allegedly lied on a polygraph exam and later admitted to having child pornography on his home computer, according to court records. Dylan G. Jefferies, the 27-year-old applicant, pleaded not guilty in Island County

Superior Court Monday to 17 counts of possession of depictions of minors engaged in sexually explicit conduct. Three counts were firstdegree charges, the most serious, and the rest were second-degree. Jefferies, a Freeland resident and former firefighter, submitted to a polygraph exam in 2011 after he applied SEE POLYGRAPH, A12

Oak Harbor raises rates to cover bones mishap By JESSIE STENSLAND Staff reporter

Oak Harbor ratepayers will start paying more for one utility to cover a portion of the cost of unearthing a Native American burial ground under Pioneer Way in 2011. The city council adopted a temporary increase in storm drain rates last week. Finance Director Doug Merriman said ratepayers will see a $2.20 increase in

the monthly storm drain fees in their March bill. The increase will last for three years and then sunset. So far, it has cost the city $3.4 million to deal with the mistake. The archaeological work is completed; the city hired experts to sift through 6,500 yards of dirt in piles throughout the city to find human remains and artifacts. SEE RATE, A12

Gloria and Bruce Hartley look over the script for the play, ‘Love Letters,’ from the living room of their Oak Harbor home Tuesday. The couple, which will celebrate 50 years of marriage in August, will act for first time at the Whidbey Playhouse.

t might go down as one of the oddest first dates on record. They sat in two cars side by side, facing in opposite directions, with engines idling. Through open driver’s side windows, they chatted into the night in a police department parking lot in the city of Chicago Heights. Bruce and Gloria Hartley had only met a couple hours earlier at a Parents Without Partners meeting. “I was taking attendance the night he came in,” Gloria said. “He came up to the table and I looked at him and said,

‘Oh my,’ and something clicked.” As they talked from their cars after the meeting, they just couldn’t drive away. Both were divorced with two children, but would soon find they had much more in common. “We must have talked about five-tosix hours,” Bruce said. “We were just chatting about, ‘What do you think about this? What do you think about that?’ Our thinking was in full agreement on a lot of things.” “We talked about anything and everything,” Gloria said. “Then we decided maybe we should stop this and go home, which we did, but then we got on the phone.”

That May evening in 1964 led to marriage a few months later. This August, they’ll celebrate 50 years together. “That’s pretty good for second timers,” Bruce said. The couple, which has called Oak Harbor home for 18 years, has decided to do something unique together this year. They will take part in a nontraditional play that is being performed at the Whidbey Playhouse in Oak Harbor this month and opens Thursday night. The play, “Love Letters,” involves mostly real-life couples sitting side by side and reading aloud love letters. SEE LOVE, A9

Vets center opening Saturday By JANIS REID Staff reporter

The Veterans Resource Center’s grand opening Saturday will mark an expansion in resources for the Island’s military service community. The general public is invited to attend an open house 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. Saturday, Feb. 15, at American Legion Post 141 in Bayview, 14096 Highway 525. The Veterans Resource Center provides “a safe portal through which the returning combat veteran can build resiliency, increase access to and use of internal and external resources, and reintegrate into family and community life,” according to their mission statement. “We network with existing veteran service organizations, community groups and churches to reach out to veterans and their families in need.” Moving forward, the center will expand its programs through collaborating with several organizations to provide information, referrals and applications for VA benefits. Starting this month, an onsite Island County Veterans Services coordinator and the Opportunity Council housing coordinator will be available 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. each Thursday. In addition, peer support groups will meet two evenings each week, 5 p.m. Mondays for women, and 5 p.m. Tuesdays for men and women. “Veterans from all military engagements live on Whidbey Island,” said Patty

of 30 are at higher risk and may need additional assistance transitioning. “We hope all will be able to join with us as we continue our support to men, women, and families having served in all areas of the military,” Houts-Hussey said. The Veterans Resource Center is a nonprofit, tax-

exempt charity and a Washington state educational and charitable corporation. Its mission is to promote community-based efforts to mitigate the effects of war on veterans, their families and communities, according to its website. As a community-supported veterans’ service organization, the VRC aims to provide advocacy, outreach, resource development, emotional and social support, and public education regarding “healing the invisible effects of war.” For more information visit www.whidbeyvrc.org, email whidbeyvrc@gmail.com or call 360-331-8081.

Island County residents will be able to offer comments about the county’s transportation services in February. The county is hosting three public meetings to gather input for the update to the transportation element of its comprehensive plan. The meetings will be held 6-8 p.m. on the following days and in the following locations: Tuesday, Feb. 18, at Whidbey Island Community Education Center, 5611 Bayview Road; Wednesday, Feb. 19, at the Oak Harbor Branch of the Sno-Isle Library, 1000 SE Regatta Drive; Thursday, Feb. 27, at the Camano Multi-purpose Center, 141 NE Camano Drive. “Island County should be served by an efficient, well-connected, multimodal transportation system while continually enhancing the safety and function of streets and roadways,” according to the countywide development goals. “Transportation plans, policies, and regulations should be consistent with, and reinforce, adopted land

use and economic development plans.” At each meeting, county staff will discuss the county’s existing transportation and get feedback on what changes residents would like to see in the future. A brief presentation will begin each night at 6:30 p.m., followed by an interactive exercise and an opportunity to ask questions. Counties and cities are required to periodically review and update their comprehensive plans and development regulations according to the Washington state Growth Management Act. This act requires that counties and cities complete an update at least every eight years. Island County last completed an update in 2005. While its original deadline for the most recent update was 2012, the Washington state Legislature recently adopted a revised schedule requiring completion before June 30, 2016. As part of the update process, the county is required by law to establish a public participation program that includes opportunities for the public to weigh in on the comprehensive plan.

oupeville Chamber of Commerce honored several members last Thursday during its annual awards banquet. The big winner of the night was Dan Miranda and Front Street Grill, which won Business of the Year. Chamber officials said Miranda, who owns two businesses in Coupeville, has been involved in all aspects of the community with his family and always has the interests of Coupeville at heart. Newly located Vail Wine Shop owners Larry and Patsy Vail were awarded the Entrepreneurial Spirit award.

Ken Hofkamp, of Prairie Center Red Apple, won the Lifetime Achievement award, which is awarded to a business or individual who has made a significant impact on the community. Hofkamp has been in business for more than 40 years and is involved in numerous organizations and supports many activities throughout the community.

Oak Harbor Chamber of Commerce is gearing up for its annual awards banquet later this month. Keeping with last year’s popular theme, The OHscars, the evening will be focused on comedies. Chamber Director Kathy Reed said last year’s theme was such a success, the chamber will continue the glitzy theme in years to come. The event is 6 p.m. Friday, Feb. 28, at the Oak Harbor Elk’s Lodge. Tickets are $50 and include dinner, drink and an evening of “surprises.” The deadline is Feb. 25 and attendees have the option of sponsoring a table. Reed said sponsorship requires decorating the table based upon a movie within the comedies theme. Each table will also include giveaway prizes, and centerpieces will be raffled off at the end of the evening. During the event the chamber will present its annual awards, which are voted on by the membership. Some of the awards include customer service, service organization of the year,

nonprofit organization of the year, employer of the year and business of the year. The chamber also presents the Acorn Award, which is given to a person or organization that’s made a difference in the community, Reed said. Past recipients have included Soroptimist for its Tree of Hope program and Home Depot for its Christmas Village. The annual awards banquet also kicks off fundraising for the chamber’s annual Fourth of July fireworks display, Reed said. During the event the chamber usually asks for sponsors to donate. Reed said a grand sponsor has already stepped up, which will cover almost half of the cost. That sponsor will be announced during the banquet. “It’s a huge contribution and we’re really pleased to be this far ahead,” she said, “but we still have $8,000 more to go.” All proceeds from ticket sales go toward the chamber’s fireworks fundraising. n To purchase tickets call the Oak Harbor Chamber of Commerce at 360-675-3755.

Bodily fluids in patrol car lead to felony charge for Coupeville man By JESSIE STENSLAND Staff reporter

Bevis Walters appeared in court Monday but refused to answer questions or sign forms.

Man accused of assaulting deputy with pair of cuffs

By JESSIE STENSLAND Staff reporter

A 36-year-old Oak Harbor man accused of grabbing a pair of handcuffs and using it as a weapon against two deputies is getting a mental health exam. Bevis G. Walters appeared in Island County Superior Court Monday without an attorney. He refused to answer questions or sign papers. Prosecutors charged him Jan. 23 with assault in the third degree and resisting arrest. Chief Criminal Deputy Prosecutor Eric Ohme asked the judge to approve a competency exam, which will determine if Walters is mentally competent to stand trial. He said the motion was based on the police report and Walters’ conduct in court. Judge Vickie Churchill readily agreed. According to court papers, Deputies Sean Warwick and Frank Gomez responded to a report of a disorderly man

near the Greenbank Store on the night of Jan. 17. One caller reported that a man was standing on the highway, yelling and talking to himself with his hands in the air. Another caller said the man ran across the highway and she almost struck him in her car. A third caller said the man was verbally accosting people Warwick found Walters in the area; he smelled of “intoxicants,” Warwick said in his report. “He was making wild statements about owning the electrical substation and building my patrol car,” the deputy wrote. Warwick and Gomez tried to arrest him on outstanding warrants, but it didn’t go well. Warwick started putting handcuffs on Walters, but they got caught on his sweatshirt. Walters turned and grabbed the handcuffs, swinging them at Gomez, who was cut on the forehead, the report states. The two deputies attempt-

ed to subdue Walters, but he kept resisting and hitting them both with the handcuffs, the report alleges. The deputies sprayed Walters several times with pepper spray, but he kept fighting. Warwick started striking him on the legs with his baton, but he kept fighting. Warwick then struck him on the arms and hands to make him release the handcuffs; Walters flung them away and kept fighting, the report states. Warwick used a “vascular neck restraint.” Walters stopped fighting, the report states.

Mucking up the back of a patrol car with urine, spit and blood led to a felony charge for a Coupeville man, court documents state. Jeremy A. Estep, 26, was charged in Island County Superior Court Jan. 23 with first-degree malicious mischief, for alleged “public service interruption,” and trespassing in the second degree. Deputy Leif Haugen with the Island County Sheriff’s

The Island County coroner confirmed that a body discovered on a beach near Possession Point State Park last Thursday belonged to 35-year-old Brandon Smith of Clinton. The cause of death was accidental saltwater drowning, said Island County Coroner Robert Bishop. Smith was last seen Tuesday morning as he was going to work, Bishop said. The senior park aide reported finding the body at 2:31 p.m. Thursday, Feb. 6 on the beach outside of state-owned housing. Bishop said Smith’s body came in with the tide. Smith’s vehicle was found at the nearby park.

Paid leave requirement would add to expenses GUEST COLUMN

By ERIN SHANNON During this legislative session, lawmakers in the House of Representatives considered two bills that would require employers to offer paid leave to workers. HB 1313 would require employers with five or more employees to pay employees for five, seven or nine days of sick leave per year, depending on the size of the company. This bill passed the House and will now be considered by the Senate. HB 2238 would require employers with more than 24 employees to offer up to three weeks of paid vacation for employees that work an average of 20 hours per week. This bill did not survive the committee cut-off and is considered dead this session. Although one of the bills is dead this session, it is instructive to understand how much these paid leave mandates would cost employers. According to the Bureau of Labor Statistics, the average cost to an employer for paid sick leave is 25 cents per hour per employee. The average cost for paid vacation is a steeper $1.02 per hour. Taken in isolation, one might think those numbers seem reasonable. Lawmakers may think they’re being generous by forcing employers to change personnel policies and that it won’t cost businesses too much, but looking at the numbers in aggregate, those seemingly negligible costs add up quickly. There are 1,713,831 workers in Washington businesses with 25 or more employees. Nationally, 23 percent of privatesector workers do not receive paid vacation, so that would be approximately 394,181 Washington workers who might benefit from the paid vacation mandate. Assuming the national average of 1,700 hours worked per year, multiply by $1.02 per hour, and the cost to employers in our state for paid sick leave would be a mind-boggling $684 million every year. Taken together, that would be an increase in the cost of doing business in Washington state of more than $1.1 billion per year. Of course, employers cannot simply absorb an extra $1.1 billion every year. They will be forced to shift costs back on to workers, eliminating non-mandated benefits and reducing hours, and to consumers in the form of increased prices. Washington should be especially wary, as our new business start rate has declined while our failure rate continues to increase. In 2010, Washington ranked ninth in business starts and 11th in closures. In 2011 (the most recent year data is available), Washington slipped to 12th for new business starts and seventh for closures. So entrepreneurs are opening fewer businesses, and more of them are failing, as compared to other states. Adding $1.1 billion per year in labor costs to our state’s job creators is not the way to reverse this disturbing trend. n Erin Shannon is the director of the Center for Small Business with the Washington Policy Center, an independent, nonpartisan think tank promoting sound public policy based on free-market solutions.

LETTERS TO THE EDITOR County

Moving offices back to full time important step Editor, We are all linked together in figuring out how to increase jobs that pay living wages in Island County. Having all Island County departments be open at full-time levels is a very important step in meeting the needs of our recovering economy. When the county only works at fourfifths speed, that negatively affects our local economy each and every week. When the county closures linger for several years, the economic problems multiply. A few weeks ago, I decided to compare Island County’s “Friday furlough days” to all Washington state counties. I called all 39 counties, including Island County. Island County is the only county with a majority of departments closed on Fridays. Only two other counties have any reduced hours or closures in 2014. Island County has 18 departments that do not work 52 Fridays per year. n Island County: 18 departments closed on Fridays. The current Island

County website shows a total of 24 departments, with only six open on Fridays. (Clerk, district court, human services, juvenile court, prosecutor, and superior court are open.) Even the sheriff’s department is not open on Fridays. n Jefferson County: one department closed on Fridays. Planning and community development is closed on Fridays. All other departments are open. n Kitsap County: two departments closed on Fridays. Treasurer and assessors offices are closed on Fridays. All other departments are open. Most of the counties did not have closures in 2013, let alone 2014. A few people laughed at the survey, which I phrased as a survey on Washington counties to see which may have budget/furlough closures in 2013 or 2014. Really, some laughed. Some were just astonished at the question. We’ve all heard about the multiplier effect of how a dollar moves through a local economy and grows. Dollars that do not get spent because citizens get tired of the waiting due to a lack of hours in a week to do county business cause major damage to our local economy.

Homelessness shouldn’t be considered normal Editor, After seeing the powerful film “12 Years a Slave,” I found myself despising the slave owners. How could otherwise decent, God-fearing people participate in this institution, clearly abhorrent to anyone with eyes to see? With slavery all around them, did it seem normal, inevitable, even right? Now I’ve asked myself about a condition that in my lifetime seems to have become a new normal. Recently, I was on a Road Scholar (Elderhostel) program in Portland, Ore. Knowledgeable speakers introduced us to the storied past and dynamic present of the city. Yet, in downtown Portland, the homeless, young and old, stood around on the streets, some days in the pouring rain. Outside trendy restaurants, after our tasty meals, they waited, asking SEE MORE LETTERS A7

OBITUARY

MORE LETTERS TO THE EDITOR CONTINUED FROM A6 for help. “Would you like this sandwich?” I asked one older woman. “I’m always hungry,” she answered, as I handed her the boxed-up portion of a hearty brew pub lunch. It’s not, of course, a situation unique to Portland. Driving Interstate 5 into Seattle from the south, look to the embankment to your right. Make-shift camps are scattered in the woods for several miles of your car trip. In Seattle, early morning office workers and Sunday morning church-goers hurry by doorways of sleeping bodies. Those without shelter in rural areas may be hidden, but they suffer equally. Is this what we have come to accept? Government and charitable shelters provide beds but are overwhelmed by men, women and entire families without a place to sleep. While the causes of this human crisis are complex, we cannot look away. Putting up signs, as some towns have done, warning us not to give money to “panhandlers,” will not do. Those worried about misuse of cash can provide gift cards for inexpensive markets or restaurants. My sister in Eugene buys big packages of dried fruit and nuts and fills zip-lock bags, which she hands out to those holding signs at stop lights. And charitable organizations working for the homeless depend on donations of time and money. Homelessness in America today is local, regional, nationwide and always a personal anguish that must never be considered normal. Gloria Koll Freeland

Politics

Help steer president’s decision on 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 jobintensive 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. Gary and Dianne Piazzon Coupeville

Wildcats qualify 12 for regional wrestling tournament By JIM WALLER Sports editor

Twelve Oak Harbor High School wrestlers, seven boys and five girls, qualified for the regional tournament through their efforts at their respective subregional meets last weekend. The Wildcat boys finished third in the team standings at the sixteam subregional tournament Friday and Saturday, Feb. 7 and 8, at Marysville-Pilchuck High School. The girls placed second, their best finish ever, in their 31-team subregional at Mount Vernon High School, also Friday and Saturday. Four Oak Harbor boys were crowned subregional champions: Christian Bertram (113 pounds), Jeremy Vester (132), Jahleel Vester (138) and Mark Johnston (152). Ray Quinday (220) and Jackson Constant (285) placed second and Jacob Dugin (195) nabbed third. The top three in each weight class qualified for the regional tournament at Seattle’s Nathan Hale High School Saturday, Feb. 15. Three other Wildcats boys (Kekai Tarrant, 160; Kenny King, 220; and Tyler Adamson, 285) just missed advancing to the regional, placing fourth and earning alternate spots. Others placing for Oak Harbor were Garrett Stahl (fifth, 103), William Nickelson (sixth, 103), Lucas Nickelson (sixth, 113) and

Oak Harbor’s Mark Johnston, top, puts Everett’s Jasen Bergerson to the mat in the 152-pound championship match Saturday. Johnston won 11-1, earning one of five indvidual subregional titles by Wildcat wrestlers.

Coupeville girls begin playoffs After splitting its final two regular season games, the Coupeville High School girls basketball team is now involved in postseason play. The fifth-seeded Wolves (5-9, 9-11) opened the double-elimination, eight-team district tournament at fourthseeded Mount Baker High School (10-10) last night; results were not available at press time. The second round is at 7 p.m. Thursday, Feb. 13, at the home of the higher seed. The winner and loser of the Coupeville-Mount Baker game takes on its counterpart from the game between firstseeded Lynden Christian (173) and eight-seeded Meridian (4-16). The top four teams from district advance to the tri-district tournament. Coupeville coach David King likes how his team is playing: “If we continue to

play as a team, we will be very competitive against anyone we face in the postseason.” Coupeville rounded out the regular season by defeating visiting Granite Falls 43-20 Friday, Feb. 8, and by losing at 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. 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 added six points, Makana Stone

four, Monica Vidoni four, Kacie Kiel two and MaKayla Bailey one. Coupeville struggled with King’s press, allowing the Knights to zip to leads of 15-9 and 29-17 at end of the first two quarters. The Wolves settled down in the third quarter and were outscored only 13-12 by the sixth-ranked Knights (14-0, 17-3). 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. Stone had six points and 10 rebounds, Strasburg nine points and four assists, Fabrizi seven points, Messner five, Vidoni four, Julia Myers two, Bailey two and Kiel two.

LOVE CONTINUED FROM A1 Not their own, but the letters of the play’s two main characters who carry on a long distance relationship through letters that started in the second grade and continued through marriage, divorce and into a still separated middle age. Although Bruce Hartley spent ample time working behind the scenes of dramatic productions in high school and college in his hometown of Walla Walla, this will be the first time he’s stepped out from behind the curtain. He’s branching out at age 86. “This is the first time he’s opened his mouth and wanted to be on stage,” Gloria said. “It was his idea.” Bruce’s biggest concern is the lighting and whether he’ll be able to read the script. But he’ll have the comfort of a familiar companion at his side. The Hartleys are one of 14 married couples who will be featured in “Love Letters,” a play written by A.R. Gurney that premiered on Broadway in 1989. In recent years, actor Robert Wagner and his wife, Jill St. John, have traveled around the country performing the play. At the Whidbey Playhouse, each of the two acts will be read by different couples. For Valentine’s Day only, there will be performances in two different locations Friday night: the Whidbey Playhouse and Coupeville Recreation Hall. The off-season play is a fundraiser for Whidbey Playhouse improvements. “It’s just really a charming play,” said Stan Thomas, who is the director but also acts with his wife, Geri, on the show’s final production Feb. 23. “It’s a non-traditional love story told in a non-traditional way. It is moving. It is funny. It is bittersweet. It’s really well-written.” The words are so moving that some of the actors and actresses had trouble holding back their emotions during rehearsals. “The actors make it work,” Thomas said. “They have to connect emotionally to the letters themselves. They have to read them as if they were the ones who had written them. It’s not simply reading letters.” The script was compelling enough to get Bruce and Gloria Hartley on stage for the first time. They’ve experienced some of life’s challenges posed in the play, becoming united

after both had gone through divorces early in life. They brought together four young boys under the same roof, then had their own daughter a year later. Bruce spent a career traveling to different parts of the world, holding the title of international director of quality assurance, among other titles, for Libby’s and later Nestle. The family moved with Bruce’s job, going from Illinois to Wisconsin, back to Illinois, then to New York. “I had a father who traveled. I knew what it was like. I knew what was required of it,” Gloria said. “My background was a teacher. I figured I could handle a class of five.” “She made me what I am,” Bruce said. “If I had stayed a bachelor, I don’t know what would have happened to me. She gave me stability. She took care of the kids when I traveled all over the world. The fact that I was free to do that made my career.” The road started off a little bumpy, however, Gloria said. “The first year we married, we put two families together, moved twice, lost three parents and had a child,” Gloria said. “Talk about stress levels. We looked at each other after that year was over and said, ‘If we can make it through this, we can make it through anything.’ So far, we have.” Gloria joked that the real adjustment came after Bruce retired when she had her husband around “24/7.” That transition came two decades ago after the couple settled in Oak Harbor. “Being 10 years older than my wife, if we leave this world in the order we go in, I go first, so I wanted for her to be comfortable if she survived me,” Bruce said. “When I retired, I couldn’t figure out where I wanted us to go.” The decision was placed on Gloria. She remembered a place they had visited shortly after they first met in the same state where Bruce was raised. “She chose Whidbey Island,” he said. “He couldn’t understand how I wanted to be so far away from home,” Gloria said. Now, as they peek out their living room window and stare at Puget Sound and daily shows of eagles soaring near Polnell Point, they couldn’t imagine living anywhere else.

PIONEERS COME ALIVE

Sixth-generation Whidbey Island resident taps family photo archives to chronicle Oak Harbor’s history

P

By RON NEWBERRY Staff reporter

eggy Darst Townsdin couldn’t have been happier to see a white FedEx courier van arrive at her home last Wednesday. Inside was the first mass shipment of her new book, “Oak Harbor.” Hundreds of books were unloaded into her den. “To finally have the book in hand is exciting,” Darst Townsdin said. The book is a photo history of Oak Harbor based on historic images from her own family’s extensive collection as well as other sources from Whidbey Island. Darst Townsdin is rooted in Oak Harbor history herself as a sixth generation islander and descendant of Oak Harbor’s earliest pioneers. Her greatgreat grandfather is Capt. Edward Barrington, a prominent early pioneer. The book is part of the Arcadia Publishing “Images of America” series and is the third to feature a Whidbey Island town, joining Coupeville and Langley. Darst Townsdin self-published two earlier books related to Whidbey Island history titled “Step Back in Time” and “Spirit of the Island,” but “Oak Harbor” is her first with a traditional publisher.

I hope people will love it.” “Oak Harbor” is a compact-sized, 128-page book that was written and designed by Darst Townsdin. She picked all the photos, including some she took herself, and wrote all the captions, except for ones on Whidbey Island Naval Air Station scripted by friend Scott Hornung. Darst Townsdin sold more than 1,000 copies each of her self-published books and figures the demand for “Oak Harbor” will be even greater. She purchased 500 copies to resell at $22 apiece, which includes tax, and in most cases on the island will attempt to deliver the book herself. She said last week she already sold about 30 after a post she placed on her Facebook page. “I like to meet people one on one,” she said. “This is the fun part at the end.” For an additional $5, she also is mailing the books. It’s an additional $10, if books are sent to Alaska or Hawaii.

Author Peggy Darst Townsdin captures the history of Oak Harbor from its pioneer beginnings in the 1850s to the conversion to a Navy town in the 1940s to present day in “Oak Harbor,” a picture book published by Arcadia Publishing. Townsdin, pictured with dog Zoey, amassed an extensive collection of photos from her family that dates back to Oak Harbor’s early pioneers. It will be an opportunity to purchase a book and get one signed and grab a cookie, she said. Wind and Tide Bookshop will be selling the books there for $21.99 and will keep copies stocked, owner Karen Mueller said. The store, located at 790 S.E. Pioneer Way in historic downtown, already has signed copies for sale. It’s a fitting place for the party considering the street was formerly named Barrington Avenue.

JACK HARTT, manager of Deception Pass State Park, and SAM WOTIPKA, have co-authored a book dedicated to the work of the Civilian Conservation Corps at the state park. “Two Hands and a Shovel” is the title of the book, which is largely a collection of photos of the work.

ISLAND DIGEST

Port of S. Whidbey South end crash restructures hospitalizes two n The Port of South Whidbey held a special meeting last week to talk about restructuring staff duties and creating a new position. Dane Anderson was named as a consultant. Port officials hope to hire a maintenance person who will work with the executive director. Port Manager Ed Field will step down from the full-time position to focus on the South Whidbey Harbor project.

Bad left causes broken nose

n A driver was sustained a broken nose and damaged his car when he crashed last week on Highway 525. He attempted to make a left turn onto Midvale Road, but he made the turn too late and he crashed into the side of the hill.

n Two people involved in two separate car crashes last week ended up in the hospital. Both were treated and released. The first accident occurred on Bayview Road when the driver veered across the oncoming lane and into trees and bushes. The second accident took place on Highway 525 near Double Bluff Road where a car was rearended by another vehicle.

Fishing club pres stepping down n Mike Gallion stepped down from running The Fishin’ Club, which is something the 69-yearold Bayview resident has done for 25 years. Replacing him is Kevin Lungren as president. Mike Price will be vice president.

POLYGRAPH CONTINUED FROM A1 to become a reserve police officer with the City of Langley. The polygraph examiner advised the police chief that Jefferies seemed to show deception on a question regarding illegal sexual activity; Jefferies allegedly admitted to the examiner that he had images of child pornography on his home computer, according to the report on the case. Jefferies, however, claimed in a letter to a state investigator that the polygraph examiner refused to accept his answers and coerced him into making a statement he did not agree with. Jefferies did not get the job as a Langley reserve officer. Also, South Whidbey Fire/ EMS Chief Rusty Palmer confirmed that Jefferies left the organization about a year and a half ago. Detective Ed Wallace with the Island County Sheriff’s Office was called in to investigate the case. He’s a forensic computer expert. Wallace obtained a search warrant and seized a computer and a hard disk drive from Jefferies’ home. Wallace said he found many images and videos that appeared to be child porn. He submitted the suspected

files to the National Center for Missing and Exploited Children to determine if any of the child victims are known; the group reported back that nine of the image files and eight videos are known child porn with known victims. A double murder, multiple sex assaults and a catastrophic computer failure delayed the case for about two years. Wallace wrote that he “shelved” the case temporarily due to the high-priority investigations. Then the department’s computer storage device failed and he lost eight terabytes of work. Wallace started rebuilding the case last year after the department purchased a new storage device. In addition to child porn, Wallace found “questionable” images of teenage girls on Jefferies’ computer, many of which may have been downloaded off social media pages, the report states. Wallace wrote that he located backup files from Jefferies’ IOS device and found some of the search terms he had used, which included such things as “teen bra,” “teen girls kissing,” “little girl webcam,” “teen prego” and “age of consent.”

RATE CONTINUED FROM A1 There are a few lawsuits associated with the project ongoing. And reburial costs could be significant. Nevertheless, Merriman allocated the known costs across the utilities associated

with the project. He said the water and sewer funds had enough fund balance that an increase isn’t currently necessary. A total of 31 percent of the costs, or $787,000, was allocated to the storm drain fund.
