Changing of the guard for Lopez DVSAS After six year’s as the islands’ sole advocate, Suzi Marean passes the job to Kim Bryan This is part one of a two part series about DVSAS, their advocates and future plans for the prevention By Cali Bagby

For the last six years, Suzi Marean carried around a black pager, and when it went off she jumped into action — whether at noon or 1 a.m., she was ready to pick up the phone. “They are often crying and scared,� Marean said of her callers. “And feeling fear, betrayal and guilt. We really try to

calm them and make sure they feel they have us to lean on and then help them make sense of their feelings.� But over the years the lightweight pager felt like a pile of bricks on her hip. “I did grow weary of being the only one on Lopez to answer calls,� she said. “The weight of the pager got pretty heavy and then other times I forgot it was there, but it was always in some corner of my mind.� Marean has been a community advocate and the sole advocate on Lopez for the Domestic Violence and Sexual Assault Services of the San Juan Islands.

Now Marean has handed the pager literally and figuratively to Kim Bryan. At her retirement party in December, Marean carefully enclosed the pager in wrapping paper, tied it with a bow and presented it to her successor. “It was good symbolism handing it over and it was an incredibly wonderful feeling of relief,� said Marean. “I didn’t realize SEE DVSAS, PAGE 8

CAO woes The San Juan County Council is proposing new rules and restrictions on property owners in the county under what they are calling the Critical Areas Ordinance. The current draft has evolved into a complex document listing sets of new restrictions encumbering both existing homes and undeveloped properties. Portions of nearly all private property in the islands will be restricted under a system of critical area designations and critical area buffers. Unfortunately, the coun-

cil is proposing rules and restrictions without identifying an environmental need or any analysis as to the cost of compliance for the property owners or cost and difficulty of administration by the county. The council majority has shown no interest in reporting how the new restrictions will affect the value of the newly restricted private property. Also not addressed is the cost to the local economy, island businesses or jobs for working families. The council majority appears to view private property rights as an arcane historical footnote that is simply a small obstacle to be overcome. I am puzzled as to how some members of the County Council we elected to represent the interests and well being of the citizens of our community could have strayed so far from what our citizens elected to do.

Spotlight on Seniors by Gretchen Wing

A

typhoon in Tonga pushed Dean and Carolyn Jacobsen to move full-time to Lopez in 1982. When a loose 42-footer smashed into their smaller sailboat, Carolyn broke 15 bones and nearly died, so the recovery period gave them plenty of time to think. Although they were adventuresome sailors, that experience nudged them toward land. The couple had co-owned the Islander Resort since 1978, but remained in Seattle. After a thorough look at Lopez School for their three kids, the Jacobsens bought out their Islander partner and made the leap to Lopez. “Leap and the net will appear,� is Dean’s mantra, but he is quick to explain that this “net� is always woven from careful planning and relationships. The San Juans were known to them from sailing trips, and Carolyn had even stayed at the Islander in the 1950s during her childhood. Dean’s hospitality business ideal had been formed from age 12, working summers at a Pennsylvania inn to provide respite from life in New York City, and a career in mortgage banking, following four years in Aviation Electronics in the Marines, had honed his confidence in making things happen.

Dean Jacobsen Lopez Island Exactly what Dean made happen has been the only surprise — even to him. “Music at the Islander was our form of advertising, and it really worked,� he said. Dean started learning the Northwest jazz scene and calling agents. In the summers, “We did music seven days a week, sometimes two or three bands a day.� One day in 1985 the Islander hosted 1,000 people, who listened to Queen Ida and the Bontemps Zydeco Band, and watching the Wenatchee Youth Circus trapeze across the lawn. Even Chrysler Corporation joined in, bringing their “Hands Across America� tour to Lopez with 40 employees and a truckload of new cars to parade. Chrysler’s video from that Islander event appeared in an ad at the halftime of the 1985 Superbowl. The Islander’s fame as a musical venue grew, until agents started calling Dean. Over the years, “The quality of the bands was such that I’d say we had 30 Grammywinning musicians here,� in every musical style. When bluesman JJ Cale jammed with jazz pianist

Lopez Children’s Center has been featured in an international children’s education magazine. Jane Hobbs, Sherry Brummel, Connie Holz, Shanley Lett, Kiki Martin, Jules McLeland, and Carole White all contributed to an article called “Challenges of a small center� for Exchange magazine. The article discusses the commu-

nity, programs, challenges, budget cuts and families. Jane Hobbs is quoted as saying, “By being flexible and willing to accommodate the needs of the families on our small island, we have built close relationships with our parents and children. Making

a living and meeting their basic needs is sometimes difficult. But knowing that members of the community care enough to create and maintain a high-quality, nurturing early childhood environment for their children gives meaning to ‘it takes a village . . .’.�

Students reach out to Darfur

ISLAND Q&A | KURT DENGLER

When Sarah Stanley, a senior at Lopez High School, took a class called Current World Problems and Solutions, she had to choose a topic and make a presentation to her peers. She chose to research the crisis in Darfur, located in the western region of Sudan. In her own words, Stanley describes how this class made an impact on her and eventually led to a benefit concert.

You can hear Kurtis Dengler perform blues, 1960’s rock and original work 7:30 p.m., Saturday, Jan. 28 at Lopez Center for Community and the Arts.

“The reason I chose this topic was because when I was a freshman in high school my art teacher had me research Contributed photo and study about Darfur. I had Sarah Stanley, a senior at Lopez High School helped raise no idea about the region, but money for Darfur. then I learned that it is now one of the most horrible humanitardonated prizes.

For more information on Darfur, visit www.unicef.org/infobycountr y/ sudan_darfurover view. html.

What kind of music and instruments can people expect to hear at the upcoming show? I’ll play all kinds of stuff... It will mostly be just me and my guitar, maybe a little bit of harmonica too. What topics are you most drawn to when writing lyrics? I guess I’ve never thought about things in terms of specific topics before. I mostly just write what comes to mind; so naturally, I write about my own personal life, my experiences, people around me, or things that I see in the world. Just like anybody else, probably. Sometimes I just like to write stories too. To tell the truth, I usually pay more attention to the music and the melody than the lyrics. What’s your favorite and least favorite thing about performing? It depends ‌ Sometimes it can be awkward, you know, if everyone is just talking and eating or whatever, but then again those are some of the best opportunities if you can have a sense of humor about it. I hope I never take myself too seriously. My favorite is when everyone seems to be

If that happens, and I feel comfortable that I’m doing an okay job; it’s the best feeling ever. Who has inspired your work? The good stuff...it’s a long list. For starters: The Beatles, Jimi Hendrix, Bob Dylan, The Rolling Stones, The Band, Love, Free, The Kinks, The Small Faces, T-Rex, Peter Green, Peter Criss, The Bee Gees, Beethoven and Sly and The Family Stone. I love all the Delta Blues, Chess, Motown and Stax records too, with a special shout out to Mr. Otis Redding. Do you feel like music

is part of who you are? Explain why or why not. Sure it is, I think it’s a part of everybody, not just musicians. Who doesn’t like music? I like listening to music as much as playing it. My wife Isabelle and I love to lay down on the oor of our apartment, with just the Christmas lights on (they’re up all year), and listen to an LP [ Long Play 12 inch wax recording], start to finish, side one to side two. It’s the best way to listen to music. It probably sounds corny — and it is, but the records on the shelf are like members of the family. For more info, visit www. lopezcenter.org.

Lopez high school student, McLeod Paton, grates garden fresh carrots into just harvested greens populations of low-income students to make available a locally-grown fruit and vegetable snack program. Sound familiar? The Lopez School District has been supporting local farm fresh foods for its cafeteria since 2002 when S & S Homestead began supplying greens for a lunch salad bar from high school students’ gardens at their farm. Over the last six years, the L.I.F.E. Garden Program has expanded to include a district-funded coordinator and two part-time gardeners to produce more food for the cafeteria. The garden boasts four hoop houses, three with sturdy new doors constructed by Pamela Pauly and her team of volunteers and a fourth which is slated to become the outdoor produce-washing facility. And this year a culinary program directed by Jeanna Carter has been launched to expose students to the professional world of inspired

food. Lopez’ farm to school program, featured in the book Smart by Nature — Schooling for Sustainability, has become a model nationwide of what is possible when schools make a partnership between on-site gardens, curriculum, and their cafeterias a high priority.
