t’s time for our annual roundup of the stories that made headlines throughout the year. Last week featured: No. 10: Orcas Fire brings piece of World Trade Center to Orcas; No. 9: Orcas wins Island Cup again; No. 8: Community saves sports; No. 7: Discover Pass implemented; No. 6: Rec District Levy passes. The final five are detailed below.

No. 5 New food bank building Since its inception roughly 26 years ago, the Orcas Food Bank has bounced around from one location to the next, depending on the generosity of various organizations. Four years ago it was operating out of a storage shed on Mount Baker Road. In the winter clients lined up to wait their turn in the numbing cold, facing rain and snow, sometimes with babies and small children in their arms. In 2009 the food bank was relocated to the basement of the Orcas Island Community Church, which provided a warm, dry place for patrons to eat a hot lunch while they waited. Food bank directors Larry and Joyce Shaw didn’t stop there. The tiny distribution rooms were crowded,

and there wasn’t enough room to store the food onsite, making frequent trips to a storage unit necessary. The Shaws began dreaming about providing the food bank with its own modular building. The church offered a $1 per year extended lease for the building to be placed on church grounds, and the fundraising began. The community watched the campaign’s progress on a wooden dial placed in Eastsound. An anonymous donor offered $65,000 in matching funds if the community could raise $65,000 to supply the $130,000 needed to purchase, place and finish the building. A final push in the fall of 2010 drew characteristic generosity from islanders and local nonprofits, and by mid-November the dial was pushed past 100 percent, with $5,000 to spare for a building maintenance fund. The fundraising happened in 2010, but the fruition came this year: the new 24’ x 48’ building was brought over by barge and set on its foundation this summer. Designed for efficient visitor flow, it’s also outfitted with shelving for food storage, sinks, a restroom, office space and refrigerators and freezers. Goodbye, trips to the warehouse.

Hello, better accommodations for hungry islanders and food bank volunteers.

No. 4: Barefoot Bandit sentenced On Dec. 16, Camano Island native Colton Harris-Moore, aka the Barefoot Bandit, was sentenced to seven years and three months’ incarceration in a Washington state prison. The 20-year-old pled guilty to 33 state charges, including burglary and identity theft” 16 filed by Island County prosecutor Greg Banks and 17 counts filed by San Juan County prosecutor Randy Gaylord. Charges filed in Skagit County were dropped, Gaylord said, because the Skagit prosecutor said he was not prepared to go to trial. Harris-Moore was on the lam for two years, hiding out in Orcas Island homes and the woods before finally being caught in July 2010 in the Bahamas. He reportedly spent time hiding in an airplane hangar owned by Mike and Dawn Parnell, waiting until they flew off so he could drive their car to their home, eat their food and wear their clothing. He reports biking around Orcas Island during his time on the run. He stole six boats and airplanes from San

Total county sales tax revenue for 2011 will be 2.7 percent lower than it was in 2010. County sales tax revenue, which includes criminal justice, juvenile justice, lodging tax, mental health tax, and rural sales and use tax, totaled $5,087,083 in 2010 and will total roughly $4,950,000 in 2011. Local option, sales tax revenue, which makes up the largest part of county sales tax, was $2,900,904 in 2010. For 2011, that figure is $2,808,050, or 3.2 percent less.

Food Bank is thriving thanks to donations Over the past few weeks, the Orcas branch of Islanders Bank gave several deliveries of food to the Orcas Food Bank. Community members noticed and began giving food and putting money into jars at teller windows. It all added up to $315. The money was used to purchase additional items, which are pictured at left. Two $100 checks were also given to the food bank. Meredith M. Griffith/staff photos

Orcas reacts to Barefoot Bandit sentencing by COLLEEN S. ARMSTRONG Editor/Associate Publisher

It is the final note of a ballad that has been playing for more than three years. Colton Harris-Moore was sentenced in Island County Superior Court on Dec. 16 to seven years and three months, after pleading guilty to 16 counts from Island County and 17 counts from San Juan County, including the left of six boats and airplanes. That sentence has provoked mixed reactions from victims and law enforcement on Orcas Island. “I understand that he didn’t get much time because he didn’t really ‘hurt’ anyone,� said Orcas police sergeant Steve Vierthaler. “I guess I would ask what your definition is of hurting someone! I know from personal experience with this whole Colton Harris-Moore episode that a lot of people were hurt by this kid. People here lived in fear of this unknown burglar and this certainly ruined the ‘island feel’ of the San Juans for a lot of people here. I read his apology letter and have no doubt that it was written by someone else. There is no way those are the words of a young kid.� It’s a sentiment echoed by San Juan County pros-

ecutor Randy Gaylord, who detailed Harris-Moore’s crimes during the hearing. Gaylord said the Barefoot Bandit exhibited “a high level of sophistication and planning.� He explained how Harris-Moore broke into a business, ordered a DVD about “how to fly airplanes� and broke in again three days later to steal it. Gaylord described how Harris-Moore created a little “den or lair� in an upper level of an Orcas Island hangar owned by Mike Parnell and his family. Harris-Moore kept the family “under surveillance� and moved into the home when they were away. “He would eat their food, take their shoes and put on their clothes,� Gaylord said. “He made the place his own when they were not there.� “I would say Eastsound lost its innocence at the hands of Mr. Harris-Moore,� he added. In handing down the sentence, Judge Vickie Churchill said she was mindful of Harris-Moore’s “tragic� childhood. He started stealing and burglarizing homes when he was a boy to get something to eat after his mother drank away the welfare money, according to court testimony. Children taunted him at school for

living in a derelict home and wearing clothes that didn’t fit. “It was a mind-numbing absence of hope,� Churchill said of Harris-Moore’s written description of his childhood. She balanced the sentencing recommendations from the defense and prosecution and came down in the middle with her decision. Known as the Barefoot Bandit, Harris-Moore grabbed national headlines during a two-year crime spree that spanned nine states and prompted an international manhunt. He was arrested on July 11, 2010 in the Bahamas. Harris-Moore had previously pleaded guilty in June to seven federal charges, including plane and boat theft and bank burglary. As part of his plea agreement, he consented to using proceeds made from movie or books deals to pay restitution. He will sentenced on the federal charges in January, but his lawyers have stated they are hopeful his entire sentence will not exceed 10 years. During the sentencing hearing in Coupeville, Harris-Moore’s defense attorneys, a forensic psychiatrist and even prosecutors described him as a painfully

Defense attorney John Henry Browne with Colton Harris-Moore at the sentencing hearing. shy young man who survived a horrendous childhood, is embarrassed by media attention and does not consider himself a folk hero. Dr. Richard Adler, a Seattle forensic and clinical psychiatrist who specializes in fetal alcohol spectrum disorders, testified that Harris-Moore clearly suffers from “an alcoholrelated neurodevelopmental disorder� that was aggravated by his home life. He said

the disorder causes him to have problems with impulsivity and language. The doctor said repeated testing showed that Harris-Moore isn’t “hyper-intelligent� or especially sophisticated. In August, Harris-Moore signed a movie deal with 20th Century Fox worth as much as $1.3 million in order to make enough money to pay back his burglary victims. His owes an estimated $1.4 million in damages.

Jason Linnes, manager of Island Market on Orcas, is set to receive around $25,000 after Harris-Moore used a pallet driver to bash in an ATM and six interior doors. “I think the sentence was fair, I’m just ready for him to start paying restitution to all of his victims,� Linnes said. Jessie Stensland, assistant editor of the Whidbey News Times, contributed to this story.

Fire chief search continues Orcas Fire commissioner and chair of the chief search committee, Barbara Bedell, said the search for a new fire chief is moving along. The Chief Search Committee has met twice. Advertisements for the position were put out two weeks ago, and there are 32

applicants to date, all men. The applicants received application packets last week. “Once these packets are returned, then the committee will start evaluating the applications,� said Bedell. The application process will be closed on Jan. 6, 2012.

Food bank has had overwhelming support It is with full and grateful hearts that we thank you for your overwhelming support of the food bank this year. Thank you for trusting us to wisely use the resources you give us to care for those who are struggling in our community. The need has grown this year, but so has your support. To the organizations who have held food drives, the businesses who have provided donation jars, the bakeries and stores who have donated food, the businesses who have provided food drops, and to all of you who have donated food and money, we thank you. We also want to publicly thank the food bank board, Yvonne Ashenhurst, Bev Johanson, Jeannie Doty, George Post, Madie Murray, and Sharon Bearchell, for their tireless work and the 30 volunteers who faithfully come and serve each week.

Thanks, council, for not weakening CAO We would like to thank county council members Fralick, Miller, Pratt, Rosenfeld, and Stephens for their decision on Dec. 5 not to support an effort by council member Peterson to weaken the proposed update to our county’s existing Critical Areas Ordinance (CAO). “Critical Areas� consist of wetlands, fish and wildlife habitat, aquifer recharge areas, geohazardous areas, and frequently flooded areas. Specifically, Mr. Peterson suggested modifying, without any support from the other five council members, the obligation of property owners to mitigate future damage to Critical Areas resulting from changes to the development and use of their properties. (The updated CAO will continue to grandfather existing structures and uses.) Mr. Peterson proposed that owners be allowed to offset any harm they cause by taking offsetting credit for the unrelated voluntary preservation and restoration of Critical "EWFSUJTJOH4BMFT Cathi Brewer cbrewer@soundpublishing.com Administrative Kathy Everett $PPSEJOBUPS admin@islandssounder.com $JSDVMBUJPO Gail Anderson-Toombs administrative gandersontoombs assistant @islandssounder.com Marketing Artist Scott Herning sherning@soundpublishing.com -FHBMT0GGJDF4UBGG admin@islandssounder.com

Areas, performed anywhere in the county, by any public or private organization or individual, such as the San Juan County Land Bank, the San Juan Preservation Trust, the National Park Service, Friends of the San Juans, and other entities engaged in salmon recovery efforts. Our preservation lands and projects should not become a mitigation piggy bank for new activities that harm Critical Areas! If Mr. Peterson’s effort had been successful, the result would have been unfair and poor public policy. It is unreasonable to argue that property owners should be subsidized by the good works of unrelated organizations and individuals that have conducted, and will conduct, work to preserve and restore our county’s Critical Areas and salmon habitat. If his proposal had been accepted, all of the preservation and restoration work performed in our county by public and private organizations, since their founding, would have been at risk of being offset by damage done by property owners who would no longer be motivated to avoid harm to Critical Areas. Our county would have taken a huge step backwards in protecting the environment we all cherish. Moreover, had Mr. Peterson’s effort had been successful, there would likely have been a negative impact on potential funding sources, which would be reluctant to finance future restoration projects serving as a “get out of jail free� card for property owners who harm Critical Areas.

It is reasonable to assume that he and most of his supporters voted against the renewal. Apparently these same individuals now believe it is acceptable for the efforts of the land bank to be used to benefit private landowners. Do they now believe this is consistent with the land bank’s charter and founding principles?

County prosecutor says cuts will ‘disrupt’ public safety The following was submitted by SJC Prosecuting Attorney Randall Gaylord. San Juan County Prosecuting Attorney Randall K. Gaylord has announced that budget cuts in March 2012 will force him to lay off the one deputy prosecutor handling misdemeanors from full-time to about half-time. “This 50 percent reduction in misdemeanor prosecution will disrupt what people expect in public safety,� Gaylord said.

The 2012 budget approved by the county council on Tuesday, Nov. 29 accepted administrator Pete Rose’s request to cut $30,600 from the prosecutor’s office. On Dec. 13, the council delayed the implementation until after March 1. This delay will be used by the prosecutor to reduce the full-time case load to a part-time case load. Beginning in January, the prosecutor’s office will implement new procedures to reduce the cases that are heard in district court.

Guest column Seven steps to ending common falls by PATRICK SHEPLER Division Chief, Orcas Island Fire Rescue

Your Orcas Fire & Rescue EMTs study from a primary textbook authored by the American Academy of Orthopedic Surgeons. The AAOS has a vested interest in fall prevention, and so do we at Orcas Island Fire and Rescue. Our medical director, Dr. Michael Sullivan, often says, “If it’s predictable, it’s preventable.� Nowhere is this more true that with falls. Benjamin Franklin said, “An ounce of prevention is worth a pound of c ure.� According to the US Center for Disease Control, falls are the leading cause of death in adults ages 65 and older. More than 90 percent of hip fractures are caused by falls. It is no surprise that fall risk for people of all ages increases when we have freezing weather. So please take extra caution. I will never forget a structure fire in Deer Harbor, working on a steep hill in 17-degree temperatures all night. We kept falling and falling on that rocky, steep and icy driveway. Here are some prevention tips from the American Academy of Orthopedic Surgeons and Orcas Island Fire and Rescue: 1. Begin a safe exercise program: walking, stretching, or Tai Chi to build bone and muscle strength and improve balance and coordination. 2. Ask your pharmacist or healthcare provider to

review your medications to see if they may cause drowsiness or dizziness. 3. Have your vision checked by an eye doctor at least once a year. 4. Make your home safe by removing items from main walkways, using nonslip mats or grab bars in the bathroom, improving in-home lighting, and keeping items in easy-to-reach cabinets. 5. Wear shoes or slippers that provide traction and support. Train pets, and move deliberately around pets to avoid tripping over them. 6. Keep emergency numbers near the phone. If you rely on a cell phone in San Juan County, (360) 378-4151 is the surest way to get to our 911 center at the Sheriff ’s Department. Wear an alarm device or carry a phone with you at all times. 7. Arrange for a friend or family member to check in with you daily. Orcas Island Fire and Rescue is dedicated to making our community safer by implementing Dr. Sullivan’s fall prevention program. If you are interested in a free home safety assessment, just call us at 376-2331. We will take your request, and then call you back to arrange a mutually convenient time to visit you in the home to provide safety recommendations. For more information on falls and fall prevention visit www.othoinfo.org/falls.

“It was 1995 when we last had a prosecutor working part-time in district court. At that time there was just one detective, no probation department, and Judge Linde was handling the calendar in about one morning a week,� Gaylord said. Because a prosecutor can’t dial back the number of offenses committed to 1995 levels, Gaylord said he is forced to reduce the cases that are prosecuted. Ethical and practical considerations require new filing guidelines be implemented immediately so that current cases can work through the system before March 1. “We will refocus on those cases that involve injuries to people, and especially domestic violence, driving under the influence, and other serious charges involving reckless and damaging conduct,� said Gaylord. “My goal is to keep the community safe, but it is not practical to expect that offenders will be held accountable in the same way that we have been able to do in the past,� he added. Many offenses will be dismissed outright or resolved with pre-filing diversion. The type of cases that will receive the lowest priority are: animal cases that do not involve injuries to people, commercial and recreational hunting and fishing offenses, killer whale/boating offenses, criminal code enforcement offenses, status offenses (such as public

intoxication, possession of small amounts of marijuana, and driving with license suspended), and public nuisances. Misdemeanor theft, shoplifting and mischief cases will be referred back to the reporting party with a referral to small claims court to recover their loss. Gaylord said it is unusual for a prosecutor to announce that certain offenses are low priority out of concern that offenders will now believe those laws don’t apply in the community. “Public safety may require some exceptions,� said Gaylord, but he believes that “citizens deserve to know what a budget cut means.� Gaylord says this means the criminal justice system will be “unbalanced� as more cases are sent to the prosecutor than can possibly be handled. “This is a sad day for San Juan County criminal justice. An unbalanced system with an overloaded deputy prosecutor will lead to inequality, unfairness, and a lot of unhappy people,� Gaylord said. Gaylord said that reducing prosecution of misdemeanor offenses hurts victims and is counter to studies which show that prompt punishment of minor offenses is effective at preventing more serious offenses later. Other studies show that a reduction in the number of prosecutors runs counter to a fair criminal justice system. “District Court is high volume, specialized work

that requires court appearances almost every day,� Gaylord said. Caseload standards are met by the work load in this office. Prosecutor’s offices serving similar populations in Washington have one full-time deputy prosecutor to handle misdemeanors. Also, it is recognized across that state that one attorney is the minimum level at which you can expect to recruit and retain a lawyer in a small rural or suburban county. Gaylord noted the layoff is being made without a similar reduction in sheriff ’s deputies. The sheriff ’s deputies investigate crime and then refer cases to the prosecutor. “Unless the sheriff deputies investigate fewer crimes, we will always need a full-time deputy prosecutor in district court,� said Gaylord. “Surveys show that citizens accept public safety as a primary function of local government and this cut sends the wrong message to the community,� he said. Gaylord said the prosecutor’s office has worked to find ways to draw new revenue and be more efficient, which has allowed the office to meet the growing work demands without adding staff since 1995. Gaylord said this action was not necessary to balance the budget. “Savings in this county are at an all-time high. There are ample reserves - over eight percent - and money from the road levy shift funds available. This

change is not necessary,� he said. Gaylord acknowledged the cuts should cause the departments that rely on fines and fees to revisit their revenue projections. �Prosecutors ask for fines and penalties so people should not expect the same revenue from someone working half-time,� he said. Based on case numbers from 2010, Gaylord estimates that in 2012 about 115 to 150 fewer misdemeanor and gross misdemeanor offenses will be handled by the prosecutor’s office. Gaylord said he will meet with the sheriff and district court establish procedures in responding to this change. Gaylord welcomes comments and suggestions from the public and plans on conducting community meetings in January.

TOP 10 FROM 1 Juan County, crashing one plane and damaging two others during landings. The trial took place at Island County Superior Court in Coupeville, overseen by Judge Vickie Churchill. In addition to the state charges, Harris-Moore pled guilty to seven federal counts this summer. The federal charges included stealing an aircraft, possession of firearms and piloting without a license. Harris-Moore incurred the charges during a spate of crimes in late 2009 and early 2010, when he flew a stolen plane from Anacortes to the San Juan Islands. Federal prosecutors recommended that Harris-Moore be sentenced to six years in prison. Harris-Moore is scheduled to be sentenced for the federal crimes in late January in Seattle. Browne has said Harris-Moore could receive between 5 1/4 and 6 1/2 years in prison. Under an earlier plea agreement, any revenue resulting from movie, book, or other deals regarding Harris-Moore’s life story

will go directly to pay the $1.4 million in restitution he owes the victims of his crimes. 20th Century Fox has already purchased movie rights for $1.3 million, to be screenwritten by Academy Award winner Dustin Lance Black. The federal and state sentences are expected to run concurrently. A high school dropout, Harris-Moore says he plans to devote his prison time to studying in anticipation of pursuing an aeronautical engineering degree. For more on this story, see page 3.

No. 3 Hammel murdered by son Matricide. It’s a word not commonly used and an act almost impossible to fathom. But as the horrific events of April 3 unraveled, there would be no ignoring the fact that a 15-year-old San Juan Island boy bludgeoned his mother to death and then set their Friday Harbor home ablaze in the midnight hours with intent of covering up the crime. That plan failed. Taylor Hammel was arrested later

that week and charged with first-degree murder and arson. He turned 16 while awaiting trial in a juvenile detention facility. Given the violent nature surrounding his mother’s death, prosecutors sought to try the boy as an adult. At 49, Sharon Hammel was well respected, visible and a popular employee of the town of Friday Harbor. Born in New York and raised in Connecticut, she moved to San Juan Island, a single mother with a fiveyear-old son, in 2001 and developed a sizable circle of friends. As lead caretaker of the town’s parks department, she decorated, cultivated and maintained the many hanging flower baskets that adorned the town. On Nov. 9, under a negotiated agreement, Taylor pleaded guilty to murder as a juvenile, and to arson as an adult. Under the sentence handed down by Superior Court Judge Don Eaton, the 16-year-old will serve five years in a juvenile detention facility, the maximum allowed by state law, and then, at the age of 21, he will be transferred to a state prison designed for adults, where he will serve two years. Eaton echoed the reasoning of prosecutors and Taylor’s attorneys, noting that serving five years in juvenile detention would offer the teen the “maximum time to for treatment and to mature” before he’s immersed in a prison populated by adults.

No. 2 School takes on debt, levy approved The Orcas Island School Board was in a fix: repairs were urgently needed for the elementary school’s heating and plumbing systems, but the community had voted down a $35 million bond in February 2010, then voted down a scaled-down $27 million bond that August. Soon after the bond failures, the school was offered a $900,000 state energy grant to help fix failing water and heating systems, but it lacked the necessary matching funds. The board faced losing the $900,000 grant if they didn’t take action. With the support and urging of a group of 44 community members who gathered under the name, “A Way Forward for Orcas Schools,” the board took a precipitous step. They borrowed $800,000 from Cashmere Bank in addition to $100,000 raised by local donors, and trusted that the community would approve a one-year levy to repay the loan placed on the next possible ballot. The repair work was done over the summer, and this fall students returned to adequately heated classrooms with cleaner air circulating, functioning water fountains, flushing toilets and warm water in the taps. The $900,000 levy was placed on the ballot this November, and much to the school board’s relief, Orcas Island voters came through

8FEOFTEBZ %FDFNCFS t5IF*TMBOET4PVOEFS

to approve the measure by 57 percent. The levy will charge property owners 28 cents per thousand dollars of assessed property value over the coming year. In other school repair news, the district was awarded $68,584 this September to upgrade or replace its fire alarm systems through the state Urgent Repair Grant program.

No. 1: Election 2011 heats up In the end, the county council asked voters to tip the scales on the fate of the county’s solid waste operation. And it wasn’t even close. When the final count was tallied from the Nov. 8 election, voters dumped Proposition 2 like a hot potato, tossing aside the proposed funding measure with a 68-percent margin of defeat. Proposition 2, which was expected to raise about $1 million a year over a 15-year life span, was intended to help keep the cash-strapped solid waste operation afloat and fund improvements at the three county-run transfer stations. Property owners would have borne the brunt of that measure, however, supplementing tipping fees, the price one pays to dispose of garbage, through an annual “user charge” of $100 or more, which applied to each parcel of “developed” land. In the aftermath of the election, the county began rolling out its backup plan, aka “Plan B”, which

removes trash collection from the hands of the public works department, sets the stage for the county franchise hauler to expand curbside collection of garbage, and perhaps recycling, and allows any of the three transfer stations to be leased by a private enterprise, or public entity, that wants to take a shot of its own at collecting and disposing of trash. Results of the Nov. 8 election are more clouded in regard to Proposition 1. But one thing is clear. In spite of its victory at the polls, the San Juan County Land Bank emerged from the election with a bit of a public relations problem on its hands. While voters granted a 12-year extension of the land bank’s principal funding source, a 1 percent tax on local real estate sales, paid by the buyer, they did so in far fewer numbers than before. Prop. 1 passed with only a 52.8 percent margin of victory. That’s a far cry from the 70-plus percent approval rating the land bank garnered when its REET was renewed in 1999, or the nearly 70 percent approval it received when voters created the publicly owned land conservation agency 20 years ago. In arguing against renewal of the REET, some critics claimed that the land bank veered from preserving open space and pursued conservation projects in recent years that benefit the few at expense of the many. Others insisted enough open space has been set aside and that in tough economic times like these, the land bank could get by with less. In contrast, supporters argued that because of its ability to conserve open space and cultural resources, the land bank benefits both the islands’ environment and its economy, helps maintain a rural landscape that both islanders and visitors enjoy, and, with only three percent of county land preserved as open space, the job of the land bank is far from complete. Still, the drop in public support, as demonstrated on Nov. 8, weighs heavily at land bank headquarters. “I don’t think any of us expected an overwhelming ‘yes’ vote, but that’s very tight,” land bank director Lincoln Bormann said of the election results. “I think there’s a message there and that now we have to figure out what that message is.”

Free Christmas tree chipping Christmas trees are a renewable resource and San Juan County Public Works Department is making it easy for islanders to turn theirs into mulch. The department is sponsoring a Christmas tree collection program. Trees will be chipped for mulch for use at a public project and not sent to a landfill. Bring clean, undecorated natural to a county solid waste facility during regular open hours. Flocked or artificial trees will not be accepted. There will be no charge for trees brought in by Dec. 30, 2011. Trees brought in between Jan. 2 and 15,

2012 will cost $5 per tree in addition to regular disposal fees. Last year’s chipping program diverted approximately three tons of Christmas trees from the landfill. For more information, call San Juan County Public Works Department at 3700503.

2011 SALES TAX FROM 1 “We have projected a modest increase for next year; I am concerned that we may not achieve even that, based on economic projections,� said county auditor Milene Henley. She said data in the Northwest Washington Labor Market Review notes that most economic projections are calling for a slowdown in recovery over the next year. One bright spot can be found with lodging tax numbers, which are up county-wide from last year. In 2010, the total was $766,462. In 2011, it is $766,858. The Town of Friday Harbor is calculated separately. Those numbers are 2010: $95,000; 2011: $100,000. San Juan Islands Visitors Bureau public relations manager Robin Jacobson said lodging tax numbers have been rising consistently, even throughout the recession. “People are coming and they’re spending money on lodging,� said Jacobson. “Some are not spending as much on purchases; they’re putting their dollars into the experience ...They’re going out whale-watching; they’re going out kayaking, but are they buying as many souvenirs? We don’t think so.�

Island Living Friends

FOREVER Mentors forge relationships with children that can last a lifetime

by COLLEEN SMITH ARMSTRONG

J

Editor/Associate Publisher

ohn Olson spends time every week with a little boy who loves to go crabbing, chop wood – and eat sweets. "He is well disciplined, except when it comes to asking for candy," laughs Olson, who has been part of the Funhouse's mentor program for three months. He is following in the footsteps of his wife Suzanne, who has been mentoring a young girl for the past five years. "Suzanne inspired and encouraged me to do it," John said. “The best thing is the enjoyment that I have seen Suzanne have with her mentee. I enjoy the company of my little buddy, but I think there is a societal obligation: there are a lot of boys without fathers around. I was raised without a father and I understand the need for boys to have male role models." The Funhouse Commons' mentor program provides island kids with one-on-one mentor matches. The children's ages range from second grade through high school, and it's about 60 percent girls and 40 percent boys. There are currently 18 adults participating as mentors, but there is a need for more. It entails a one-year commitment and at least one hour a week of quality time spent with a child. Typical activities are going to the beach, working on a project and doing activities outside. "You have to be committed to that child, for at least a year. You have to be dependable,� said program director Jodi Luft, who is herself a mentor. “The kids are counting on you to be there on a set day. And it works both ways. The kids need to be there too." The program accepts children from any background. Sometimes mentors meet prospective mentees at a community event or the Funhouse hears about kids from counselors at the school. “Absolutely anyone is eligible,� Luft said. “You can never have too many people who care about you.� January is mentor appreciation month. The Funhouse's next training session is set for Feb. 11. After that initial training, mentors can meet once a month with other

First charter review meeting

Local man gets involved in OWS

The county charter review commission will meet at 9 a.m. on Saturday, Jan. 7 in the County Council Chambers in Friday Harbor. The charter calls for a review by an elected Charter Review Commission after five years of operation under the new form of government.

Beau Borrero observed the feeding and sheltering of hungry strangers amidst the cold and rain. He stood witness to police pepper spraying and striking faces with clubs, and the twisting and contorting of limbs that he can only describe as torture. Borrero also watched ordinary people from all walks of life with signs held high above their heads, their slogans reverberating throughout the country. “I was totally blown away by the power and energy of the message of the movement,� Borrero said. “‘We are the 99 percent.’ What could be simpler than that? It’s a modern version of Lincoln’s ‘of the people, by the people, and for the people.’ If the founding fathers could see what the rich and powerful have done to their country, I think they would cry.� Borrero initially visited the Occupy Wall Street movement in September and returned to his home in Friday Harbor inspired to write the song “Rise Up.� Within a few weeks of its inception, “Rise Up� was recorded with local musicians Teddy Deane, Jonathan Piff, Benj Ross, and Borrero’s mom Gretchen Gubelman. Then he flew back to New York – guitar in hand – and with the help of Kwame Simms, director and videographer, he created the

Gubleman said it was thrilling to hear the song and then see the music video. It brought up memories of her days as a young woman in New York City fighting for civil rights and in protest against the Vietnam War – she even marched when she was pregnant with Borrero. “The apple doesn’t fall far from the tree,� she said with a laugh. The music video features Borreo – looking ironic in a suit and tie with his shoulder length hair waving in the wind – interspersed with humorous and dark images from the movement, which Gubelman calls a “collage of

He says that Occupy Wall Street may be geographically removed from San Juan, but it has affected everyone by drawing attention to the fact that we all need good schools, health care, and less war. If history is any indication, then art has the ability to create social change, said Borrero. “ The American Revolution may well not have happened without the book, ‘Common Sense’ by Thomas Paine. ‘Uncle Tom’s Cabin’ by Harriet Beecher Stowe went a long way towards changing opinions about slavery in this country,â€? he said. “Would we still be in Vietnam if it weren’t for Woodstock and the music of the late 1960’s?

He’s not afraid to march alongside the protesters while strumming his guitar. Maybe signs, catchy phrases and a song will not change the distribution of wealth and power, but Borrero believes it will get people talking. And who knows what could happen next. “The movement has largely accomplished its goals – income distribution is now an issue, when it wasn’t before ‘Occupy,’� Borrero said. “‘Occupy’ has also drawn attention to the fact that the political system in the U.S. in basically broken, with neither party able to deliver the fairly simple things this country needs.� See Beau Borrero’s “Rise Up� video at http://goo.gl/ sgU05.

Members of the Trailblazers with some of the stockings they stuffed for local kids. This holiday season the Orcas Island Trailblazer 4H club stuffed 98 stockings for local children in need. The task is an ongoing community service project for the club. Members also serve as part of the local girl scouts troop, selling girl scout cookies in February and March to raise money specifically for stockings. “The success of this project depends on lots of people,� organizers say. “Amber Paulsen works with our local food bank and Orcas Family Connections to identify the need. Club members make a presentation to our local Lions Club asking for

a donation to purchase stocking stuffers. Amber and Margie Sabine use the Lions Club donation and the money raised from selling girl scout cookies to purchase stocking stuffers. At the first 4H club meeting of the new season the stockings are cut out, then Mary Minnis sews the stockings. Finally, a few days before the stockings are due to the food bank, the club members stuff the stockings, in less than an hour. It is such an incredible project.

Organic Seed Alliance’s seed saving workshop for gardeners and farmers took place on a frosty fall morning last Monday at Skagit Valley Community College/ WSU Extension on San Juan Island. The workshop was designed for folks of all seed saving knowledge levels, along with other organizationally created courses, is presented by OSA staff throughout the year. OSA executive director Micaela Colley presented this basic Seed Saving Workshop 101 course to a captive participatory audience of more than 20 San Juan County farmers and gardeners. Participants spent the morning in a classroom

learning the basics about seed, including a brief history of seed in agriculture, basic genetics, the difference between open-pollinated and hybrid varieties, patents, planting dates, crops best suited for the bioregion, harvesting methods, equipment, and drying techniques. Folks spent the last portion of the day learning to winnow carrot and cilantro seeds outside in the afternoon sun. Colley answered questions throughout the day and reminded folks that several publications (including a Seed Saving Guide for Gardeners and Farmers) are available for free download on OSA’s website. San Juan County community members are exploring the county’s potential for seed production as a

Mystery knitters hit Eastsound

Meredith M. Griffith/staff photos

Eastsound trees have lately sprouted a smattering of colorful, trunk-warming sweaters. It’s a mystery who’s behind the cheerful smockery, but the pranks may be an offshoot of an international “yarn bombing� movement by the knit graffiti group Knitta Please, founded by Texas textile artist Magda Sayeg. June 11 has been designated as “International Yarn Bombing Day.� Participants strike quickly, decorating public places with knitted covers for random items: light poles, bus seats, bridge railings – you name it. There’s also a knitting group called “Graffiti Grannies� on Facebook. Self-described “middle-aged granny urban woolerists,� their tagline is this: “You won’t see us or hear us, but you will know we have been there!�

San Juan Islands make the bucket list The new edition of “1,000 Places To See Before You Die” lists the San Juan Islands as place number 899. The Friday Harbor House and the Whale Museum made the list at number 900. The updated edition of the book by Patricia Schultz offers 200 new entries, 25

additional countries, and more than 500 full-color photographs. Schultz said she has been working on the revision since the original edition came out in 2003. “I began thinking of what I wanted to add and what changes I wanted to make — that is the nature of the beast in the world of

travel books,” said Schultz. “Things are forever changing.”
