Lopez Lobos in rout, 56 to 12 By Gene Helfman Special to the Islands’ Weekly

Lopez celebrated homecoming with a 56-12 blow out victory over Clallam Bay on Saturday, Sept. 24. Lobo scoring was led by Vinny, Eddie and Tommy Kramer with Tommy making four touchdowns. Keldon Jardine ran for one touchdown and passed to Tak Peralta for another score. Coach Larry Berg gathered both

teams at midfield after the game. He thanked the 11-man Clallam Bay squad for making the long trip here, congratulated them on their effort, and reminded everyone that Lopez has fielded similarly small teams in the past. The Lobos are now 3 and 0, having bested Lummi JV and Muckleshoot in earlier games. Halftime Homecoming festivities included fundraising to bring a scoreboard to the Lobo football and soccer

field. The new scoreboard is being driven 4,126 miles from Oklahoma. Transport costs are being met through donations (make checks out to “The Pack� and send them to P.O. Box 446, Lopez, WA 98261). Photos from the Clallam Bay and other football games, plus volleyball and soccer matches, are posted on the Lobo Pack Facebook page (www.facebook. com/profile.php?id=1500297009).

Seeds of hope by Chom Greacen and Lopez Community Land Trust Special to the Islands’ Weekly

Soon Lopez gardeners and farmers will have a Seed Library where the public can have access to seeds that are locally grown and adapted to our local climate and tastes. Saving seeds and sharing them are a critical step towards a more resilient food future for Lopez Island and beyond. The Seed Library is a project of the Lopez Community Land Trust. Located next to the LCLT office, the library will provide a temperature and humidity-controlled vault for seed storage. LCLT Board member, David Zapalac, designed and installed a passive cooling system for the seed library, which has a slab floor and an area for cleaning and milling seed, such as local wheat from LCLT’s community-supported agriculture (CSA) grain project. Protocol for identifying seed, germination, and lending are being developed. On Nov. 19, LCLT will host a seed saving workshop by Ana Malinoff, who makes her living selling saved seed grown in her garden on Lopez. Magically contained in each seed is the blueprint of life of a plant or tree that grows to offer sustenance to us and other living creatures. Though much older than the human race itself, these little blueprints of life are now under grave threat. Thousands of years of evolution and our ancestors’ labor resulted in a massive diversity of plant varieties adapted to th differing localized growing conditions. This diversity is rapidly being lost, with an

estimate of approximately 97 percent of U.S. Department of Agriculture lists having disappeared in the last 80 years. Of the remaining seeds in the worlds, 98 percent are now in the hands of just six companies: Monsanto, DuPont, Aventis, Dow, Syngent and Mitsui. Monsanto alone accounts for almost one-quarter of the global proprietary seed market. These big agrichemical corporations have been buying up seeds and systematically reducing natural seed stock. A seed company, later acquired by Monsanto, eliminated 2,000 varieties of seeds from its inventory. The seeds being eliminated are the older, open-pollinated, heirloom varieties. What these corporations are creating instead are seeds that are reliant on chemical or cannot be saved and propagated (hybrid, patented and genetically modified seeds).

Q&A: Port Commission candidates position 1 and 2 This is part two of a series of Q&A specials with the candidates

Ed Kilduff: LOCAL CONTROL OF THE LOPEZ TRANSFER STATION IS A BIG ISSUE ON THE ISLAND: HOW HAVE YOU KEPT YOURSELF INFORMED ON THIS ISSUE? I like to think that I have been one of those doing the informing. I served on the County’s Solid Waste Advisory Committee . I was one of the leaders of the grassroots Take Back the Dump movement. I was chosen by the Port to serve on their solid waste Citizen Advisory Committee. I have gone to extraordinary lengths to learn about the solid waste system, and more importantly, to share what I have learned. ARE YOU IN FAVOR OF THE PORT DIRECTLY MANAGING THE LOPEZ FACILITY? IF SO, IS IT A LONG-TERM OR SHORT-TERM COMMITMENT? I am in favor of the PoL managing our facility. I have explored other options, too. For TBTD, I even drafted a ballot initiative that would have set up separate disposal districts for each island; however, it received little community traction. Some Lopezians have suggested Local Improvement Districts as a solution, but LIDs are just junior taxing districts that create no change in management or governance. As Yogi Berra says, “It’s hard to make predictions, especially about the future,� but I think the shift to the PoL will be permanent. Perhaps the county might reform itself and one day be trusted with serving the public good again, but in the meantime, we can run the facility ourselves.

Bruce Dunlop: LOCAL CONTROL OF THE LOPEZ TRANSFER STATION IS A BIG ISSUE ON THE ISLAND: HOW HAVE YOU KEPT YOURSELF INFORMED ON THIS ISSUE? I heard the Lopez community express a strong desire to have a solid waste system that includes comprehensive recycling, encourages reuse of materials and minimizes disposal waste. I suggested last year that the Port could take over the operation of our facility. As Chair of the Port Commission I have investigated options for the Port to contract with San Juan County to run our facility. At my initiative, a citizens committee was formed to evaluate the operational and financial issues for the Port and to also gather input from our residents. I am extremely well informed on the issues about our transfer station. ARE YOU IN FAVOR OF THE PORT DIRECTLY MANAGING THE LOPEZ FACILITY? IF SO, IS IT A LONG-TERM OR SHORTTERM COMMITMENT? I am leading negotiations with the County for the Port to directly manage the Lopez Transfer Facility. In the short term, I believe direct management by the port is the best option. In the longer term, it may well be in our best interest for the port to subcontract the operation to a community organization. In either case the port would retain a long term commitment to ensuring that solid waste and recycling is operated in the best way possible for Lopez Island residents and the environment.

Suzanne Berry: LOCAL CONTROL OF THE LOPEZ TRANSFER STATION IS A BIG ISSUE ON THE ISLAND: HOW HAVE YOU KEPT YOURSELF INFORMED ON THIS ISSUE? I have a strong interest in our Lopez Solid Waste facility and have attended every meeting I’ve known about since Take Back the Dump began. I’ve been excited to see the strong public response on this issue.

basis. Operating solid waste will require funding beyond dump fees and recycling income (CAC report), and the port’s current income will not fill the gap. Financial solutions will require a referendum and commitment of the Lopez community. I will use my experience and be a reasonable voice balancing and furthering all PoL goals.

ARE YOU IN FAVOR OF THE PORT DIRECTLY MANAGING THE LOPEZ FACILITY? IF SO, IS IT A LONG-TERM OR SHORT-TERM COMMITMENT? Yes, I am in favor of the port directly managing the Lopez facility as a long term commitment. I would like to see a Lopez Solid Waste Advisory Committee formed

Stephen K. Adams: LOCAL CONTROL OF THE LOPEZ TRANSFER STATION IS A BIG ISSUE ON THE ISLAND: HOW HAVE YOU KEPT YOURSELF INFORMED ON THIS ISSUE? The first question I asked regarding the Port of Lopez taking over solid waste was, “Can the PoL do better than the county?� As a long time supporter of recycling, I want success. In July, the PoL’s “Citizens Advisory Committee� recommended a plan to locally operate solid waste. I reviewed this report then talked with members of the CAC. I attended both port and CAC meetings. I talked with current and past County and Port Commissioners and employees from solid waste. I talked to Lopez citizens who love and use our dump, citizens who haul their waste off-island and people who use San Juan Sanitation. I called and talked to people from San Juan Sanitation and Skagit County Solid Waste. This will not be an easy task and will require experienced leadership.

this: The group meets up and carpools to the job site. Van is loaded with necessary tools, equipment, and a wellprepared crew. They arrive at the site and have a check in circle. “Where’s your head, where’s your heart?� the crew leader asks. They wipe the last of the sleep from their eyes as backpacks are donned and tools divided. Off they go, sometimes hiking miles to get to their work site, a perfect time for some environmental education. Once at the site, a base camp is established, tasks are delegated and the

Lopez Island Conservation Corps recently wrapped up its fifth annual summer youth program. The crew spent nine weeks working hard, learning and having fun outdoors as they helped to maintain and improve public lands in the county. This season LICC was contracted by Bureau of Land Management with American Recovery and Reinvestment Act funds to perform extensive trail building and maintenance. With the guidance of crew leaders Amanda Wedow and Charlie Behnke the crew went above and beyond their call of duty, working six miles of trails on the south end of Lopez and Patos Island. A workday with the LICC crew looks something like

work gets done. The day flies by and it is time to pack up, hike out, and have a closing circle to talk or write about the day. The LICC summer youth program aims to accomplish

several objectives. The physical work accomplished is important, needed, and well appreciated, however it is not the sole purpose for the organization. Perhaps even more important is the opportunity to engage young people outside, to help them deepen their connection with place, and to foster environmental and community stewardship. The program is also valuable for skill building and as a first time job opportunity, a fantastic addition to a resume or college application. For more information contact Program Leaders Amanda Wedow and Charlie Behnke at l.i.c.c.team@gmail.com or 468-2951.

LCLT has so far raised about $4,000 primarily through the sale of raffle tickets. The raffle prize, a cute yellow electric car/truck, will go to the winner whose name will be drawn at the Annual Harvest Dinner at the Lopez Community Center on October 22. LCLT is selling raffle tickets until then, hoping to raise another $3,000 to bring the Seeds Library project to completion.
