Jazmine Franklin

It’s a win for everyone.

With the holiday season bearing down fast, now is the perfect time to pick up gifts for people in your life.

Thanks to the hard work and talents of a former Wolf supernova, you can obtain unique mementos, while supporting the work of one of Coupeville’s best and brightest.

During her time at CHS, Jazmine Franklin was a student leader, formed a potent doubles duo on the tennis court with McKenzie Bailey, and was one of the loudest ‘n proudest cheerleaders ever to wear the red and black.

Franklin was later inducted into the Coupeville Sports Hall o’ Fame, a true legend among legends.

In her post-high school days, the former Wolf has expanded her art empire as she continues to produce high-quality work.

So, take my advice, and pop over to her site to see for yourself.

The gift you buy today could be a double gift – if you buy it from the right source.

Her latest masterpiece.

Does your kid draw?

Maybe they paint, or take photos, or write stories, or craft poems, or do just about anything creative.

If so, this is the time to let the world see what they can do, and also give me stuff to publish during our current sports slowdown.

Doesn’t matter if they attend school in Coupeville, Oak Harbor, or on the South end of the Island.

It’s open to everyone on Whidbey.

Contact me on Facebook or email me at davidsvien@hotmail.com, and let’s get your offspring their moment in the spotlight.

Mesmerizing.

After a long day of clearing land at my sister’s farm, sitting back and watching the video below is a nice end to the day.

It captures Coupeville High School freshman and talented artist Emma Garcia creating a swirling explosion of color, as recorded by mom Aaron Wiley.

But, enough with my talking. Watch for yourself and be impressed.

Wait, I’m wearing … pants?!?!

It’s deceptive. So, so deceptive.

Look outside today, with the sun glistening off of Penn Cove, and you almost might believe the water would be warm.

You’d be wrong, however.

Once upon a time, for about a five-year stretch, I went into the waters below my house every single day for much of the year.

In just a swimsuit.

And believe me, it was never, ever, EVER warm.

Certainly not when there was snow on the ground in November, but also certainly not on the rare 90-degree day in August, either.

Looking back, I am left to wonder – was I a moron?

And then you see the drawings I used to make on my body parts prior to splashing down, and you know the answer for yourself.
