It’s fun to eat at the YMCA this summer

C 2 • Wednesday, May 28, 2014

By Emma Leedy of the Leader

As the Village People said in a famous song, there are “many ways to have a good time” at the YMCA. And this summer, children can have a good meal with the Jefferson County YMCA Summer Meals Program. “There is an appalling need for food for children in Chimacum and Port Townsend,” said Molly Fahrenschon, an office coordinator at the Jefferson County YMCA. Throughout Jefferson County, between 50 and 89 percent of students are eligible for a free and reduced lunch program during school, said Erica Delma, program executive. When school lets out for summer, many children’s primary source of nutrition is gone. The Summer Meals Program and other activities are an effort to respond to this need. “We definitely need volunteers,” Delma said. The program is funded by grants and heavily relies on volunteer help. The YMCA partners with multiple organizations countywide to put all of the programs on. “Last year we served 5,000 meals to 150-plus kids. We are hoping to double that this year,” said Fahrenschon. The Summer Meals program is available in Port Townsend, Chimacum and Quilcene. Anyone in Jefferson

Port Townsend & Jefferson County Leader

County, ages 1-18, is welcome to stop by any of the three locations, five days a week, for a free healthy snack or lunch. The Summer Meals Program is scheduled to run from June 16 to Aug. 22. There will be a comprehensive literacy program in Chimacum from 9 a.m. to 1 p.m., funded by Feed Your Brain. This program is open to kids ages 5 to 12, with the food site open to children of all ages. Feed Your Brain is made possible by a grant from School’s Out Washington. “In 2013, all 89 children who participated in the Chimacum program maintained or improved their reading level,” said Delma. “All children were issued a library card and got into the habit of weekly library trips and with the support of phenomenal volunteers we engaged dozens of families in their child’s out-of-schooltime learning.” At the Mountain View Commons in Port Townsend lunch will be provided at noon with a snack at 3 p.m. Children 5 to 12 can enroll in all day camp at this location. “There is a fee for camp but Department of Social and Health Services and Financial Assistance are available,” said Delma. The program in Quilcene will be held at the Quilcene Community Center with a lunch being served at 12:30

June 7-8 are free days at state parks

p.m. and a snack at 3 p.m. On Wednesdays the program will be at the Quilcene schools. “In Quilcene youth ages 5 plus may be dropped off 12:30-3:30 to participate in activities including art, gardening in partnership with Farm to School, library activities with the Jefferson County Library’s Book Mobile, Read to Rover and more,” said Delma. Children are welcome to

Many historical buildings remain of the military fort established at Fort Flagler in the 19th century. The 784-acre Fort Flagler State Park, located at the north end of Marrowstone Island, has 15 fire circles, a military museum, 5 miles of biking trails and 5 miles of hiking trails. There are two boat ramps and opportunities for clamming, crabbing and beach walking. A Discover Pass is required to park

stay and engage in physical activity and arts and crafts while also receiving literacy help from volunteers and enjoying a nutritious meal. A team of volunteers in Chimacum puts the lunches together from 8 a.m. to 10 a.m.. Monday through Friday, and then drives them to Port Townsend and Quilcene, said Fahrenschon. There are strict controls from the United States

Department of Agriculture about the nutrition of the food served at this program and they often take donations from local farms. “The program is phenomenal and a true collaboration of many individuals and organizations,” said Delma. Along with the Summer Meals Program, the YMCA also offers a Summer Childcare Camp and numerous summer day camps.

The Quilcene Rangers girls fastpitch advanced to the 1B State Tournament after defeating the Evergreen Lutheran Eagles of Tacoma 17-0 Friday, May 23 in a district championship game in Quilcene. Quilcene junior pitcher Sammy Rae threw a perfect game. With help from her teammates, she denied the Eagles any contact with first base. Evergreen Lutheran played Highland Christian of Arlington earlier that day and pulled out a win in the final few innings. Things started off hot for the Rangers with Allison Jones hitting a home run in the first inning. The runs kept coming as the Rangers repeatably sank the ball deep into the outfield. “We hit really well today and ran the bases aggressively,” said head coach Mark Thompson, adding that the team hopes to represent Quilcene well in the upcoming tournament. The Quilcene girls are set to play in the 1B State Tournament on May 30-31 in Yakima.

The duo of Rachel Maki and Sarah Allen has advanced to the 2A West Central District tennis tourney. In addition, Maki and

The Rangers didn’t start scoring until the third inning and things really got going in the fourth when Allison Jones hit a three-run home run, the first of her high school career. “Obviously I would like to see our offense get started a little earlier in the game, but overall we played pretty well,” said Thompson on the girls’ first win against Highland Christian. Sammy Rae hit her eighth home run of the season. Rae also threw her third no-hitter of the season during that game, going five innings and striking out 12 batters. She is 13-0 this season. Quilcene won 10-0. HITS: Allison Jones 1-2, HR, 4 rbi; Megan Weller 2-2, rbi; Sammy Rae 2-3, 2 rbi; Bailey Kieffer 1-3; Janelle Johnson 1-1; Celsea Hughes 1-2, rbi; Katie Bailey 1-1 rbi. The Rangers defeated the Knights in Game 2, winning 9-3, pulling from the entire roster.

“It’s awesome when our younger players get a chance to play in a varsity game and contribute,” said Thompson. Quilcene got lucky when it came to walks and wild

pitches. Emily Ward scored a tworun home run in the fourth inning. Kieffer pitched the fourth and fifth innings. HITS: Emily Ward 2-2. HR, 2 rbi; Allie Speer 1-2.

Allen’s Chimacum–Port Townsend team has received the Olympic League’s Sportsmanship Award for a second time. Entries in the May 15 Olympic League tournament at North Kitsap that lost twice the first day were Frances Sheldon-O’Neal and An Nguyen in singles, and the doubles team of Vy Nguyen and Sarah McEdwards. The doubles team of Chimacum juniors Sarah Allen and Rachel Maki had lost its first match to North Mason, 1-6, 6-4, 4-6 on May 11, then defeated a Port Angeles team 6-1, 6-0 and downed an Olympic squad 6-4, 6-3, advancing to May 15 action. In that May 15 action, Allen and Maki upset the top-seeded North Kitsap team, 7-6, 2-6, 6-4, followed by 7-6 (7-3 tiebreak), 6-4 against a second-seeded NK squad. The eight-hour tourney day ended with a 2-6, 2-6 loss to Kingston. “It has been many years since a Chimacum or Port Townsend girl has advanced beyond the league tournament, so this was quite an accomplishment,” said coach Laurie Olafson. “Both players were justifiably proud of their play, as was the coach.” Maki and Allen placed fourth in the 16-team field. The two junior girls went on to compete at the district tournament on May 23-24 at the Kitsap Tennis Center in Bremerton. The top 12 singles and the top 12 dou-

bles represented the Olympic League, South Puget Sound League and the Seamount League at the double-elimination tournament. Allen and Maki won their first match against the Tyee team from SeaTac, Washington, 4-6, 6-1 and 10-5 in the tiebreak. A tiebreak was used because until the early afternoon, rain made the outdoor courts unplayable. Their second match was close, but Tacoma’s Franklin Pierce High School won with 7-6 (7-5 tiebreak). Franklin Pierce was the number-one seed going into the tournament. Allen and Maki then defeated Fife 6-2, 6-4, advancing them to day two of the tournament. On the second day, Allen and Maki won their first set against the Sequim team of Melanie Guan and Karen

Chan. The Sequim team came back winning the second and third sets. The final score was 4-6, 6-4, 6-3 in favor of Sequim. “The Chimacum doubles team is already looking forward to next year and being even stronger,” said Olafson. Last year, Allen and Maki were 0 and 2 in tournament play. This year, including the Olympic League tournament, the duo was 6 and 4 postseason. Three years ago, the Chimacum–Port Townsend team won the Olympic League Sportsmanship Award, and the honor has been bestowed on the players yet again in 2014. “We won again for being fair, friendly and enjoying the game of tennis through a dozen meets,” Olafson said.

Olympic Mountain bike team repeats as state champions HOGLUND IS CHAMP

Miles of training, cold and wet practices, perseverance through injuries and setbacks all led up to success for Port Townsend’s mountain bike team of local high school students, Olympic Mountain Bike Team (OMBT). The team won each of the season’s four team competitions and the overall state championship, finishing the season with five individual overall state champions out of eight categories. The season’s final race, the Washougal MX Challenge, took place on May 18, the team riding through race-day mud in Clark County to win the day’s team competition, with three riders winning their individual races. Based on the season’s race results, the team won the state championship with 1,985 out of a possible 2,000 points, distancing the second-place team by almost 200 points.


OMBT’s girls’ team finished with state champions in all four categories. Varsity rider Cassie Ross won the Washougal race, the only rider in the league to win all of her races this season. Senior Mazy Braden was injured and unable to race in Washougal, but still finished third in the overall varsity standings. Team cocaptain Camille Ottaway finished second in

David Hoglund took first place in the state boys’ intermediate standings.

the Washougal race, but had enough overall points to be crowned junior varsity state champion. In the intermediate category, senior Annalise Rubida won the state championship, and in the beginner division, first-year rider

Odette Jennings won her third straight race and the state championship title. Braden and Rubida are OMBT’s only graduating riders; both look forward to racing for the Western Washington University Vikings.

The OMBT men’s team had successful races as well. With 37 racers in the beginner category, Tate Braden finished sixth in the race and fourth overall in the state standings. Isaac Steimle placed 15th overall in the state in the beginner category, with Dashiel Morley placing 20th, and Rowan Halpin, 21st. The intermediate boys’ race was won by David Hoglund, who also captured the overall state title. Tristan Fountain and Miguel Salguero finished third and fourth, respectively, in the race. Joel Mackey traded his intact bicycle for a teammate’s broken bike to better the team’s chances, then pushed the broken bike three and a half miles through the mud to finish 21st out of 24 racers. In the state overall intermediate standings, Hoglund was first; Fountain, second; Salguero, fourth; and Mackey, 11th. In the junior varsity race, Calvin Leckenby placed third; Groves Moore, sixth; Andy Hull, seventh; and Eli Biskup, 10th. In the overall standings, Hull finished third in the state rankings, with Moore in fourth, Leckenby in fifth, and Biskup in seventh. In the state top boys’ category, varsity rider Luca Freier finished third, with Joseph Tweiten in fourth and Oliver Parish in fifth.

City: Pool needs repairs PT Citiy Council set to make a decision soon

Summer weather makes a lot of people want to go swimming, and the Mountain View pool fills that need. The pool offers swim lessons for kids and a “water babies” parent and child class. There are several hours a week reserved for open swims, including discount night on Fridays, when entry fees are just $2 per person from 1-7:30 p.m. The weekday morning schedule includes time for lap swims, water aerobics, aqua boot camp and therapeutic “balance and movement” classes. There are noon lap swims and evening lap swims, and the pool is also available for rental for pool parties or other events. The PT City Council recognizes the value of the pool, said City Manager David Timmons, and will be asked to make decisions about funding emergency repairs to the entire Mountain View complex in June. The City leases Mountain View Commons, a former school, from the Port Townsend School District for about $90,000 per year, Timmons said. The City meets with the school district this week to go over the lease terms, he said.


“We’ve drafted the lease,” Timmons said. It is to come before Council in June, along with financing plans, grant agreements and a contract for services for emergency repairs, he said. The repairs involve the roof

and the heating and mechanical system. There are currently two diesel oil-fueled boilers housed in a room off the lobby between the gym and pool. The boilers are very old; they were relocated there from the old Lincoln School. “They’re like train engines,” Timmons said. “They’re huge and they’re extremely inefficient, and barely repairable.” The boilers “have gone down before,” Timmons said, at a cost of about $10,000 to $15,000 for each breakdown. Also, there are not controls except on and off to control the heat, Timmons said. The pool was originally designed to be an unheated outdoor pool; the building was built around it and “they tapped into the boilers” to heat the pool. “It’s kind of this Rube Goldberg design,” Timmons said. Replacing the old boilers with condensed-propane boilers could save $40,000 per year in fuel costs, Timmons said. The air handlers, dehumidification systems and air exchange systems also need replacing, he said, adding that the current system is “just a crazy configuration.” Repairs to the roof and heating and mechanical systems are estimated to cost $2.6 million, Timmons said. The City has secured $800,000 in grants from the Department of Energy and the state Department of Ecology. The remaining $1.8 million would be financed by “a reallocation of Proposition 1 money,” he said. “I can guarantee [the City Council] that they’ll spend a whole lot of money” on the Mountain View complex, Timmons said. “I don’t know when, though. You might as

well do it in a reasonable, predictable fashion,” rather than a reactionary one, he added. “It needs to get done,” he said of the repairs. “If it doesn’t get done, the problems are compounding.” Proposition 1 brought in $440,000 last year, half of which went to public safety and police, and the other half to Jefferson County. Next year, the City keeps all Prop. 1 money, per the Prop. 1 agreement. “We’re really pushing hard to get some partners to help us” at Mountain View, Timmons said, in reference to the current partnership with the YMCA.

ty residents if they would use a new YMCA facility and, if they say they would, the survey asks whether they would be more likely to use a facility at Mountain View or one located in the Port Hadlock/Irondale area. “If they pursue another location, the city will be hard pressed to justify investing further [in Mountain View], so we’ll look at other ways to repurpose that location to meet other community needs,” Timmons said. “We’re cautiously optimistic that Mountain View will be the preferred location.” Erica Delma, executive director of the YMCA in Jefferson County, said they’re not going to be leaving Mountain View anytime soon. “The YMCA is committed to having a presence in the short term at Mountain View,” she said, acknowledging that many families depend on the child care offered there. “We also see the need in the long term at Mountain View. We’re not leaving campus.”
