Students help with fundraising effort

Orcas Island High School celebrated homecoming with a high energy assembly and parade through Eastsound on Friday, Oct. 5. Pictured above is the senior class giving it their all during a tug of war with younger students in the high school. Each grade and the sports teams lip-synched to songs and performed dance routines. For a slide show of the festivities, go to the community section of our website, www.islandssounder.com. For coverage of the homecoming sports games, see page 8.

Madison Todd’s favorite book is “Gargoyles Don’t Drive Buses.” A fourth grader at Orcas Island School, Todd loves to read and check out books from the school library. But she and her fellow students were unable to do that this year after budget cuts shut the library’s doors. Todd went into action, participating in the Orcas Island Education Foundation’s “Unwrap the Library” fundraiser. She, along with sixth grader Sabrina Bailey, sold the greatest number of wrapping paper packages. They came in at nearly $1,000 each. Bailey reached out to relatives near and far via internet sales. Most of Todd’s sales were from going door to door. “I sold them to my family, to people at Lavender Hollow and to

She knew the money would eventually run out. And when it did, Rosedanie Cadet started eating canned tuna and starchy breadfruit growing on native trees. Occasionally she picked carrots and greens from the garden to add to her meals. “I always expect to run out of money,” she said. Whether on a broken-down car she needed for travel or something as small as a $10 crab trap to help locals – the costs add up and the needs always outweigh the funds. But Cadet is not the type to operate under the fear of poverty. She’d rather use whatever finances are available, even if it means emptying the last of her pockets and putting every coin to the best use. And the coin does keep coming thanks to

supportive islanders and Cadet’s own bank account. Cadet founded Helping Hands Noramise, in the northern town of Limbe, Haiti after the 2010 earthquake, which according to the International Organization for Migration has left 634,000 people living in displacement camps and according to the Haiti government left a death toll of 316,000. Noramise provides social and developmental programs for income, pride and social activism. Cadet said it’s not a charity program – everyone must volunteer to receive benefits like education, fresh food from their garden or chlorine for water purification. Cadet has traveled back and forth between Haiti and Orcas since 2010. While on U.S. soil she works at The Kitchen restaurant, supporting herself and Normamise projects. On her recent trip, from April to August, she stopped in Florida to attend a conference on

sustainable development in Haiti for a week. Then she attended an aquaculture training course in southern Haiti with two Noramise members from Limbe. “I don’t live there so it’s important to have work started without me, after initially providing training and resources,” Cadet said. “I set up the first meeting and then I step back, allowing them the opportunity to work it out.” It’s a philosophy Cadet has adopted over the years because if locals can’t figure it out on their own, it won’t work long term. But giving others responsibility does not always mean that things move swiftly. Projects take time and money, and most of all need people who are committed – on both islands. When people on Orcas ask how they can help, her response is “what do you love to do?” She said when people are passionate they are

Thanks to the students’ hard work, donations from the community and a commitment from the school board, the library reopened on Oct. 8. Initially, it will be staffed four days a week for three to five hours a day. A chunk of the overall $43,000 goal has been met.

Island kids in Eddie Bauer Learn about transgender Three Orcas children modeled for the Eddie Bauer spring 2013 catalog last month. Charlie Brady, age 10, Flora Lister, age nine and Beck Mahoney, age two, were chosen at a casting call as models for Eddie Bauer’s spring catalog. The photos will be also be featured online.

On Sept. 21, all three children participated in a photo shoot on Mount Constitution. A few days later, Lister and Brady modeled on the interisland ferry. “It was a wonderful and fun learning experience for the children,” said the parents. “The Eddie Bauer models and staff were very helpful and supportive.”

identities during workshop by COLLEEN S. ARMSTRONG Editor/Publisher

The definition and awareness of gender is evolving. For those in the “helping”

professions, understanding the term transgender can be critical for treating clients sensitively and appropriately. Social worker Talcott Broadhead is coming to Orcas Island for day-long training about the issues and barriers experienced by transgender people and those close to them. “It will emphasize an antioppression and liberation approach to serving transgender and gender nonconforming individuals and their families,” Broadhead said. Domestic Violence and Sexual Assault Services of the San Juan Islands is sponsoring the free session on Friday, Oct. 19 from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. at Odd Fellows Hall. While it is designed for mental health and medical professionals, anyone is invited to attend. To register, contact Anita Castle at 376-5979. Broadhead has a masters of social work from the University of Washington School, is a gender justice advocate and professional social worker in Olympia and a domestic violence/ sexual violence advocate and therapist and coordinates The Office of Sexual Assault Prevention at Evergreen State College. Transgender is an umbrella term used to describe identities (woman, man, neither or both) that don’t match the gender that an individual was assigned at birth. Broadhead says there are a lot of misconceptions about transgender people, primarily that they are experiencing a mental disorder or are sexually deviant. “Being transgender is an

identity. A gender identity. We all have a gender identity, none of which are wrong or abnormal,” Broadhead said. “Many people latch onto images or ideas that have been generated by mainstream media and/ or longer standing cultural myths about this term. The overt prejudice experienced by trans folks may play out a little differently from community to community but the institutional and cultural oppression manifest similarly regardless of community.” Broadhead says that prejudice can be felt in lack of access to services that are sensitive, validating, and gender-confirming. Disparities in income, employment, insurance coverage and social acceptance cause trans people to experience high rates of homelessness, imprisonment, poverty, unaddressed health care concerns, sexual violence, post-traumatic stress disorder, unemployment, violence and suicide. The training will address the many ways that providers can change their services to be “trans-affirmative, equalizing, liberating, and welcoming.”

Voters will pass or fail the latest $11.9 million school bond measure on Nov. 6. The Sounder solicited views in support and against the measure, but was unable to find someone to speak in opposition. “We are grateful for the opportunity to vote for this school bond, which will facilitate bringing our public school into compliance with current codes and ADA standards while also updating our classrooms with better space management, natural light usage, and more contemporary standards,” said Clyde Duke, who in 2011 headed a committee of local contractors and architects to independently evaluate the school’s needs. “The timing is perfect for financing and the scope of the work is welldefined and necessary.” Duke and his committee stepped in to examine the situation after two previous bond measures failed: one for $35 million in February 2010, and a pared-down version for $27 million in August 2010. Faced with the failed bonds coupled with muchneeded repairs, the school board and management have found alternative

These buildings must be repaired. They were never meant to last as long as they have.” Brownell said Duke’s group asked architectural firm Mahlum to come up with a scenario that met the school’s repair needs while maintaining the foundation and as much of the buildings as possible. As the existing 1980s buildings require “an extreme amount of maintenance,” they also asked that the recommendation include simple, inexpensive maintenance requirements. The $11.9 million bond now up for vote is the direct result of these recommendations. “This bond will keep all that is still strong and viable in the buildings,” said Brownell.

Orcas power outage A routine maintenance inspection showed a weak link in OPALCO’s Eastsound circuit. To make the necessary repairs, an outage is planned for the night of Thursday, Oct. 11 beginning at 11 p.m. The crew will be opening switches, which shuts off the power, to create a safe environment in which to work on the repairs. Members who live in Olga up to Youngren’s Pond will be out of power from 11 to 11:30 p.m. The areas of Eastsound Village, North Beach, Buck Mountain and Raccoon Point will be out of power from 11 p.m. to 5 a.m. OPALCO members are

resources that have reduced the amount needed for repairs through a bond. In 2011, the school received energy grants for heating and plumbing improvements to the elementary building and the siding of the high school. The elementary repairs were completed before the start of the 2011 school year. The high school siding work started this summer and will be done in mid-fall. The grant money was matched by local donors and a loan from Cashmere Bank. The school paid back its loan this year with money from a $1 million, one-year capital projects levy approved by voters last November. The levy expires at the end of 2012. “The school board has done all that it can to lower the price of the bond,” said school board member Janet Brownell. “It has applied for grants and has removed the tax burden of replacing the siding on the high school through $1 million in ‘distress schools’ funding from Senator Kevin Ranker.

Editorial

To the Editor:

Reject CRC Prop. 1 and 2 on ballot

April will be missed

W

e think it’s too soon to reverse the changes that county voters endorsed seven years ago. In 2005, voters endorsed, by 63 percent, the “Basic” Home Rule Charter and by 55 percent, an amendment to the charter that divided the county into six legislative districts, created a council of six part-time legislators, and established district-only elections for each of those part-time posts. Now, county residents will decide how much to reorganize that structure in this November’s election with a vote on three propositions put forth by the Charter Review Commission. The propositions would cut the council from six part-time members to three full-time members (prop. 1); replace the executive county administrator position with a county manager (prop. 2); and mandate that all county council meetings are open to the public (prop. 3). The Sounder is encouraging a “no” vote on Prop. 1 and 2. At this point in time, we don’t feel it’s the right direction for our county. Here is why. • The county legislative body is now more diverse in its representation and has evolved into a more collaborative and effective decision-making unit with six members, rather than three. • With an annual budget of roughly $45 million, county business deserves to be managed by a professional administrator, not by three elected officials who also set policy and make laws. That’s too much power vested in too few hands. • Many argue that in county-wide elections for a three-person council, the legislative body would be more accountable to the voters. We think our council members care equally about island-specific issues regardless of which community voted for them. The charter has brought about positive change and it’s far too soon to unhinge it from its foundation. The next review is in 10 years. While we think that’s a bit too far into the future, it doesn’t mean that now is the right time to reverse all the growth that has occurred. Reject Prop. 1 and 2.

Former Mayor of Eastsound, April, passed away last month, and I want to express my personal sympathies to all of her friends who mourn her passing. She was an outstanding mayor and a “pastural” fixture to those visiting Eastsound and she will be sorely missed. And thanks to Joann Frances of the Trading Company, caretaker of April, and her assistant Sylvia Biddick for their loving care of this beautiful bovine. April’s service to the community and to Children’s House was exemplary. Indeed, she set the bar for mayoral leadership for years to come. Let us, on this occasion, commit ourselves to be responsible citizens and turn out to vote in November. It is our civic duty to participate in the election process so that we remain a country of, by, and for the people. As mayor, I am working on dog suffrage – I’m not sure about cats! Mayor Murphy

Thanks for fundraiser A big thank you to everyone who came to the Ali Z fund raiser dinner, and to those who where unable to attend but still participated. I hope everyone had a great evening! A special thanks to Amy Masters, John Gibbs, Wilma Sale, Cindi Gould and my mother Nancy Miller. Without your help, Ali Z would have never made it! Alicia Miller Deer Harbor

Leave political signs be During the campaign season, many of our neighbors actively participate in the democratic process by posting political signs on their property. Let us all respect our neighbors’ first amendment right to express their political preferences by not removing their political signs. For those who are not dissuaded by the notion that we do a disservice to our political freedom when we suppress the rights of others, please keep in mind that trespassing on our neighbors’ property and sealing their signs are criminal offenses.

Editorial made sense In response to your editorial “Please put it in writing,” I’d like to chime in with a view from the East Coast. I am a frequent visitor to Orcas and believe that the addition of PIMC will be a good thing. But you are so right – you need to “get it in writing” what the future will hold with regard to potential controls on reproductive health services, genetic testing, and for that matter, abortion services. Please Google “Abington Memorial Hospital” to see a recent and similar Pennsylvania case. Their plan to merge with a Catholic hospital, Holy Redeemer, would have meant the end of all the above services. Luckily, over 200 docs at AMH protested, as well as thousands of local citizens, including one lovely lady who started a Change.org petition that really got the media’s attention. Luckily, the merger failed. Please be careful, citizens of the San Juan Islands, as you could face a fight like this down the road if you don’t know exactly what the hospital relationships have in store for you. Tracy McQueen Newark, Del.

Frustrated with school lunches The state government has changed the school lunch nutrition standards once again. As a sophomore who eats school lunch daily, this really ticks me off. If you visit their website, ChooseMyPlate.gov, you’ll see that the Orcas Island School District is

now required to serve every student a portion of fruit or vegetables equal to the amount of grains and protein we receive. They also must reduce the saturated fat content of their foods, and now they cannot serve trans fats at all. I expect this will result in an elimination of all or most fried foods on the menu in the near future. I find it very depressing that soon, I will no longer be able to enjoy my beloved corn dogs and chicken nuggets. Weekly pizza is already out. And seriously, a 50 percent fruit and vegetable lunch? Last year, they might constitute a fourth of our total meal. And at that time, they would often be hard, greenish apples or boiled broccoli. Not really fare that children enjoy. I don’t see the vegetable options getting any better, so I assume we will just have to eat twice as much of something that was only palatable because it came in a small amount. I can eat a few bites of something I find unpleasant, but half my lunch? Also, vegetables are much less filling than more high-starch foods. Last year, the lunch portions would be just enough to keep me going to the end of the day. If 25 percent of the filling food is gone, what am I supposed to do? I could supplement my meal with food from Island Market, but the fried burritos and energy drinks I would buy there would be more detrimental to my health if I ate them daily then if the school simply went back to last year’s menu. And the new regulations are also very wasteful. I’ve seen many small children eat just the “unhealthy” part of their lunch and throw the

LETTERs FROM 4 veggies in the trash. The school is going to be spending twice as much on vegetables, a large percentage of which are going to be wasted. You can’t make the kids eat, so why spend the extra money on them? And you know, these lunches cost parents money. Why should it be mandated that I be served something that I don’t want? I’m 15. I’m responsible with my eating, and I don’t think anyone was really getting fat off of the school lunches. Lunch activists like Michelle Obama and Jamie Oliver don’t understand my plight, yet they still think they can intrude into my food. Braeden Smith Eastsound

CHILI COOK-OFF thanks I want to thank the people WHO organized the Chili Cook-off. I looked forward to attending after reading about it. I tried all nine! They were great. It was hard to vote for only three. The Chili Cook-off that benefited the children of Orcas was a terrific idea. Please, let’s do it again next year. Marilou Cobb Orcas Island The Chili Cookoff team would like to extend a giant thank you to all who helped make the First Annual Chili Cookoff such a phenomenal success. The day would not have happened without such fantastic support. The day started with a rousing New Orleans style tribute to our recently departed former mayor, April, organized by Joann Frances and Sylvia Biddick with music provided by Orcas Island’s Dust Bunnies. Things really got cooking with the 11:30 a.m. kickoff. Nine teams threw their ladles in the ring to compete for the top prize. We would like to thank the following teams for bringing their best to the table. The Hot County Employees, Ron Gillelund; Chiladas Chillen Chili, Cy and Julie Fraser; The Lower Tavern, Jim Passer; Chickweed Chili Co, John Steward and Maple Rock Farm; Saturday School, Kyle Freeman; Orcas Hotel, Ryan Houser; Flaming Avengers, Kevin O’Brien; Orcas Fire 911 Memorial Fund, Valerie Harris; Islanders Bank,

Barbara Ellenwood. The competition was fierce but when the tickets were counted first place honors and a check for $150 went to The Orcas Hotel – Ryan Houser, second place and an award of $125 went to the Flaming Avengers – Kevin O’Brien and his firehouse team and third place honors and $75 in prize money went to Orcas Fire 911 Memorial Funs – Valerie Harris. Without such overwhelming support the event would not have happened. The biggest winners were the kids who are served by the Giving Tree. Our gratitude also goes to event sponsors: The Lower Tavern for the donation to the beer garden. To Island Market, Orcas Kiwanis, Orcas Lions Club, Orcas Island Farmers Market and Orcas Family Connections. Thanks to the many volunteers and attendees who turned out to help make this event a success. And a special thanks to the bands JP and the Okay Rhythm Boys and Almost Canadian and friends for generously giving their time and talent. With your help, this event raised $2,600 for the Giving Tree. It surpassedc our goal. This money goes directly to help our island children have a happy holiday season. We are very much looking forward to next year’s smokin’ hot chili cook off event! The 2012 Chili Cookoff Team Orcas Farmers Market, Island Market, Kiwanis, Orcas Family Connections, Orcas Lions Club

Vote no on CRC changes In the early 90s, I was appointed to several county committees. It was quickly apparent to me that wellmeaning politicians rather than professional managers were ineptly running the county. I – with several citizens – went to Olympia to acquaint ourselves with the various forms of county governance. Most of the Washington counties had some form of professional management, either a manager reporting to several politically appointed commissioners or an executive that was hired or elected to manage a charter county with a bipartisan legislature. Neither idea appealed to the then elected commissioners. But finally about five years ago the commissioners offered their constituents an opportunity to see if a county charter would be embraced by their constituents. And so it was.

www.ISLANDSSOUNDER.com

And as directed by the freeholders who wrote the charter, it was to be reviewed in five years. Reviewed – not destroyed – which seemed to be the aim of a committee that did not thoroughly understand the fundamental workings of the charter. We were warned by our mentor county, Whatcom, that it would be a rough go initially. It took a long time to vet the problems that had been created over many years with politicians at the helm. Many of those bumps are now behind us and the present structure is geared for better management and legislative activities in the future. Now is not the time to go backward. I attended a recent Charter Review Committee meeting and was appalled at their insinuations that the county was too liberal, was not representative and that the council was involved in conspiracies that did not represent the public wishes. There are constructive changes that should be made. However, they were bypassed for reasons of ideology not fact. Vote no on the committee’s recommendations to change the charter. Walt Corbin Olga I have been personally involved with San Juan County government since the early 1980s, first as a citizen, then two terms as the elected county prosecuting attorney, freeholder and finally as a county council member. I have operated under both the old commissioner form of government and the new charter form of government and have firsthand knowledge as to what works best. In my opinion, the freeholders and the large plurality of citizens who approved their work product in 2005 got it right. Under the old system, many critical problems were not addressed and, figuratively speaking, kicked down the road. For example, the state required San Juan County to update its Solid Waste Plan in 2001; it didn’t happen. The state required San Juan County to update its Critical Areas

Ordinance in 2006; it didn’t happen. The county never had a business plan that included long-range budget forecasting with a prescribed budget reserve policy until the charter came into effect. Since the charter, these and many other issues are finally being addressed. Reducing the accumulated backlog of the commissioner system has required dedication and hard work. This work is finally reaching fruition. Now that the advantages of charter government are being realized in San Juan County, it makes no sense to go back to an old system that didn’t work. If you agree with me that the voters got it right when they approved the charter, Vote to Reject Propositions 1 and Proposition 2. Gene Knapp Orcas Island

Yes on CRC changes As a member of the Charter Review Committee, I’ve been fascinated to see some of the falsehoods that have been flung about concerning both the process

Page 5

and the proposed changes. When it comes to the process, others on the committee have ably dealt with the misinformation in previous letters. When it comes to the proposed changes, reasonable people can disagree. I think the proposed changes are necessary for a more efficient, fair, and representative government. One of the great pleasures of serving on the Charter Review Committee was finding myself in full agreement with longtime political opponents, John Evans, Gordy Peterson and Tom Starr. We may often disagree on what government should do but we can all agree on the best form of governance. One of the best reasons to return to three council members has to do with the supposed “half-time” nature of the current council with six members. No matter the number, it is a full-time job! All of the current council members have said that they work a minimum of full-time but the county can only afford to pay them as “half-time.” Do we want to

live in a county where only the “better off ” percentage of our population can govern out county? I don’t. If you’re happy being able to vote for only 17 percent of your county government then vote no on the charter amendments. If you’ve taken time to actually observe your current six person council in deliberations and feel they are more efficient, decisive and representative than the previous three-person commission, then vote no on the charter amendments. When you have a problem with county government, if you’re happy with the ping-pong game of shuttling back and forth between county administrator and “your” council member, then vote no on the charter amendments. But if you want true equal representation, if you want to vote for ALL of your legislators and want to know that they will be the parties responsible for county government, then vote YES. Feel free to call me at 3764656 to discuss this further. Bob Gamble Orcas Island

San Juan County Sheriff’s Department reported responding to these calls:

Sept. 1: Prompted by an anonymous tip, authorities discovered, uprooted and seized 20 marijuana plants growing on the Land Bank Crescent Beach Preserve on Orcas Island. The plants, varying from one to four feet in height, were planted in two separate locations on the preserve, located just east of Eastsound. Three water jugs and one plant container were also confiscated. Sept. 13:  An estimated $1,200 worth of power tools disappeared from a west side Orcas Island resort in an apparent theft. Management of West Beach Resort suspected an individual who was later questioned by authorities. The missing tools include two chainsaws and a trio of cordless tools; saw, screwdriver and flashlight. Sept. 16:  An eight-foot dinghy, equipped with an outboard motor, vanished from the Rosario Resort marina in an apparent late-night theft. Valued at $2,600, the dinghy belongs to a Lynden, Wash.

The boy reportedly missed a bend in the road and slammed his pickup into the tree as he was retrieving a bottle of water that had fallen onto the floor of the vehicle. His passenger, a 16-year-old boy, escaped the crash without injury. Sept. 18:  Two vials of prescription medication, one containing 40 tablets of powerful painkillers, vanished from an Orcas Island woman’s pickup in an apparent late morning theft. The 31-year-old left her purse in the pickup, reportedly unlocked and parked in the 500 block of Madrona Street at the time, walked her children to school, and then returned at about noon

to find the contents of the purse scattered inside the pickup and both vials of medication missing. Sept. 23:  A warrant and a collision with a tree led to the arrest of a Orcas Island woman in the 1400 block of Orcas Road. The 23-yearold, accused of violating a no-contact order, reportedly lost control of her vehicle while swerving to miss a deer and then crashed into a tree. She was also ticketed for driving without a license and proof of insurance.

Vegetarian club sprouts up There is a new social gathering on Orcas and it’s a chance to learn how to easily prepare healthier meals. However, don’t let the name “Vibrant Vegetarian Cooking Club” fool you – non-vegetarians and people of all skill levels in the kitchen are welcome to attend this monthly gathering. “Whether you’re an omnivore, vegetarian, vegan, raw foodie, gluten-free or wish you didn’t have to prepare

meals, you will be supported in learning how to easily create meals that add more whole vegetables, fruits, and legumes into your personal lifestyle,” say organizers. Local chefs are also encouraged to join. There will be opportunities to enjoy movie nights, scheduled family nights where children under age 14 will also be invited, and information from medical doctors and scientists who specialize in whole nutri-

tion science. The club will gather on the second Thursday of every month at the Orcas Christian School kitchen, located at 107 Enchanted Forest Road, beginning on Thursday, Oct. 11 at 6 p.m. The cost is $5 per person.

HAITI FROM 1 more likely to stay in for the long haul. Cadet said volunteers on Orcas like Robin Woodward are crucial for raising funds and creating a support network. Woodward helped raise the bulk of Noramise funds and has been a lifeline for the last two years. “I really appreciated the opportunity to get a little insight into a country that is our neighbor. We only hear the bad stuff,” said Woodward, who was Noramise’s first board member. “And at this point the organization is really maturing.” And volunteers in Haiti are equally as important to Noramise’s continuing growth. Since she started this work, Cadet said there is not a lot of physical evidence of motion, but one only has to look at the Haitian people who have stuck with Noramise to see there is progress.

see how our community responds to needs at the school,” said OIEF President Janet Brownell. “And to all of the students, parents, neighbors, friends, grandparents, aunts and uncles who helped to re-open the library – thank you.”

trical service, which would require buying a larger generator. The Orcas 4-H club spent this summer raising money for a school in Limbe to purchase goats. “The kids are very psyched and have hopes of raising funds for chickens and sewing classes,” Cadet said. She looks at the work in Haiti as many small pieces in a puzzle that look minor, but together add up to one picture that brings change to the country. “And like a puzzle you are not working on one piece, you are working in all areas to get the whole picture and everyone working on it shares the vision,” Cadet said. And her vision for the future is the country she knew as a child with clean streets, education, farming, clean rivers and a high quality of life. “I want them to have what I have,” Cadet said.

Her old rugby team in Olympia is sponsoring the endeavor. They are currently trying to raise funds for cleats for the Limbe team, as they currently play barefoot. She said it’s an opportunity for the kids to grow strong bonds and also teach the kids and parents about nutrition and even help them to grow food in their yards or motivate them to use the Noramise garden.

OPALCO finishing Into the wild, colorful caps and all broadband study by Scott Rasmussen Journal editor

OPALCO is in the home stretch in its year-long effort to explore the feasibility of expanding its existing fiber-optic network to create a telecommunications infrastructure for San Juan County. The goals of the initiative are to: 1. Upgrade the electrical system by adding “Smart Grid” capabilities that will improve reliability and help members save money on energy costs; 2. Improve the communication system for local public safety first responders, including OPALCO, sheriff, fire, and EMS; 3. Provide members with access to high-speed Internet service at speeds of at least 10 Mbps, fostering new opportunities for economic development; 4. Create infrastructure that would make it easier for wireless carriers to expand cellular coverage in the county, including 911 service. OPALCO‘s board of directors will review a business plan at an Oct. 19 meeting in Friday Harbor. A decision to move forward or not is expected before year end; details of how to move forward would be developed with member feedback in early 2013. Planning materials will be posted at www. opalco.com in November.

‘Orcas Council’ to meet

The Orcas Community Council will explore current ballot issues during its Oct. 14 meeting at the Eastsound Fire Hall from 4 to 6 p.m. The OCC is a place for community members to “share what is on their hearts and minds, their programs and projects, and explore opportunities for creating positive outcomes,” say organizers.

Two of the four showed no hesitation at all. They dove directly into the waters of San Juan Island’s Shipyard Harbor and zipped across the calm, cool, shallow bay like they were headed for home. The other two? Not so much. Four once-ailing and now rejuvenated pups were released back into the wild by Wolf Hollow Rehabilitation Center on Sept. 29. The event proved an intriguing reminder that not all harbor seals are created equal. “I think basically what you’re seeing is a bit of confusion on their part,” Wolf Hollow education coordinator Shona Aitken said of the two more seemingly timid pups. “The saltwater and location might seem really foreign and they’re saying ‘I’m sticking with you’.” Still, Merlin and Remy – all four pups were named after a Disney movie character – appeared to gain confidence in their new surroundings and after 20 minutes or so slowly ventured out together into the bay, following the lead of Eema and Kovu before them. With their departure, Wolf Hollow successfully rehabilitated and released all 10 seal pups it treated in 2012.

Party hats? Nope, not really. A pair of Harbor seals released by Wolf Hollow, Saturday, Sept. 29, sport identification caps that will be used to track their movements. A strong adhesive keeps the caps in place, until they fall off. The last four were just days old when they were recovered by the San Juan County Marine Mammal Stranding Network in late July. Three were in poor health, underweight, dehydrated and weak when their convalescence at Wolf Hollow began. All four were found on a local beach, two on Lopez and one each on Orcas and San Juan, and apparently abandoned. Each gained more than 40 pounds during two months of rehab and, once they were strong enough to dive, were repeatedly given the allimportant practice of hunting live prey in the confines of the wildlife rehab center’s diving pool.

“They have the instinct to chase but they get a little confused about what to do once they catch a live fish,” Aitken said. “They just need a little practice.” Along with their Disney names, Eema, Kovu, Merlin and Remy were outfitted with colorful caps, modestly sized, for identification and for tracking their movements, at least temporarily. The caps are attached to the pups’ head with a strong adhesive. Aitken said the caps are an experiment this year in tracking and less costly than global positioning satellite tags.

Young sailor wins NW circuit Vikings dominate FH;

A warm and sunny weekend greeted the racers for the Oktoberfest sailing regatta in Seattle on Sept. 29 and 30. More than 150 youths

from Washington, Oregon and British Columbia competed in several boats and classes. The lone representative from Orcas Island raced for both a victory at the regatta and the title of Northwest Youth Racing Circuit. Maggie Toombs, pictured at left, and her O'pen Bic had placed second and first in two previous regattas, which put her in prime position to win the circuit. However, the other more improved

racers combined with the weather gave her a run for her money. Yet in the end, hard work, combined with months of intense training and a little luck paid off. And for the second year in a row, Toombs took the regatta and the circuit. Only one event remains and that's the World Open cup in Miami, Fla. Toombs will compete with Bic racers from more than 20 countries. The Toombs family says they are “humbled” by the community support in helping Maggie get to Florida. Donations for the “Maggie in Miami” fund are being accepted at Washington Federal or mailed to P.O. Box 803, Eastsound, 98245.

Vikings football scores big by Marty Zier Sports contributor

Homecoming for the Vikings football team went well with a 73-0 win over the Chief Leschi Warriors at Dahl Field on Oct. 6. The Warriors’ first pass attempt in their first possession resulted in a defensive

back Dimitri Pence interception, which set the tone for the remainder of the game. Working on a short field, Viking quarterback Daniel Briggs hit Devon Stanzione for a 5 yard TD reception. Defensive back Jack Gates, in his first game, intercept-

ed another Warrior pass, allowing Briggs a few plays later to hit Rylan Date on a beautiful 35-yard TD reception, advancing the score 14-0 in the first quarter. To read the rest of this story, go to www.islandssounder.com.

Orcas PTSA kicks off 2012 The Orcas Parent, Teacher, and Student Association may be a small group but they have a long list of accomplishments and worthy plans this year, say organizers. PTSA hosts social events for new and returning families, knitting club at recess, spelling club to support the All-Islands Spelling Bee, and the ever-popular Friday Night Roller Skating in the Old Gym. PTSA also collaborates with Orcas Island Community Foundation, the food bank, teachers, and counselors to organize the Weekend Backpacks for Kids, distributing packs of non-perishable foods for K-8 students every Friday for the weekend.

To fund these programs, as well as a new small grants for teachers initiative, which will distribute 16 $50 checks to teachers for classroom supplies this month, PTSA is hoping the community will join the “Box Tops 4 Education” collection contest. Look for the Box Tops logo on hundreds of products. Clip the pink stamps and bring or send them to the elementary school. Each one is worth 10¢ for the students. Kids of all ages are invited to Friday Night Roller Skating from 6 to 9 p.m. in the Old Gym with rockin’ tunes on the iPod that third grader Trevor Moulton recently donated.

Fly me to the moon by CALI BAGBY Staff reporter

The earth is destroyed. People move to the moon, but it is crawling with zombie children. A girl seduces Santa, only to find he is a dark underworld lord. Renditions of Bowie’s “Space Oddity” and the Beastie Boys’ “Intergalactic” are performed with passion. These are just a few scenarios from the upcoming show “Enchanted Forest Cabaret … Fly Me To The Moon,” Thursday through Saturday, Oct. 11-13 and 18-20 at 7:30 p.m. on the OffCenter stage at Orcas Center. “The cast and I had a really great time getting ready to raise the curtain for anyone who shows up,” said creator and director Deborah Sparks. The show is the continuing story of the characters from the Enchanted Forest production that sold out last year. It follows characters boarding a rocket ship for the moon in a Steampunk inspired sci-fi adventure starring Jake Perrine, Grace McCune and Khadoma Colomby. Characters include Major Tom, Zorg, The Butler, The Chef, the Steampunk Dancers, Manbot and the Zombie Kids. “Its great to get to creep into Deborah Sparks’ mind,” McCune said. “The show is like living in her subconscious, it’s amazing.” McCune added that the show is very much Sparks’ brainchild, but it feels like everyone is collaborating. The creative fusion comes from Sparks being open to creative input, said Perrine.

Enchanted Forest Cabaret presents continuation of its popular production

And in staying true to the origins of cabaret, Perrine said the whole production is about the assemblage of talents and imaginations that show up. “I love working with people who understand and demonstrate that their part on stage is as an artist and what they show up with is part of the grand collaboration,” Sparks said. According to “A History of Cabaret” by John Kenrick, the word cabaret initially referred to any business serving liquor, but the culture started to flourish in Paris in 1881, where poets, artists and composers gathered in an informal saloon to share ideas and compositions and audiences enjoyed performances for a small price. On Orcas, entertaining the community still stands as a priority. “Last year the audience kept thanking us for bringing something so fun and lighthearted to the stage, especially during these hard times in our country’s history,” McCune said. “It’s refreshing to forget about life for a little while.” And performers get something out of the deal as well. McCune said it’s great to get on stage and have an opportunity to laugh at yourself and let go. “We get so wrapped up in our heads about how to present ourselves,” she said. “When we can let go of that identity it can be fun and the audience responds to that.” For Sparks the show is about shedding seriousness. “It’s all about having those who can flow with

the vision and take risks,” she said. “It’s very exciting and I laugh a lot, which is the point, for me, of doing this production.” But there is also incredible beauty interwoven into hilarity with songs like “I dreamed a dream” from Les Miserables. But even that heartbreaking melody is infused with a new light. And it’s not just humans who bring the show to life. Sparks said her creative dream team of Chris Brems, Dean Carey, Marcia Gillingham and Annie Sparks-Dempster can make anything, including elaborate and eye-catching sets and costumes. Perrine also adds his hand, not only as a performer, but behind the scene creating sound effects, song arrangements and coordinating visual projections that will augment the show. But he said all that is not meant to stand in as the main event, but rather to enhance the mood and vibes that Sparks has set out to create. “In this day and age people are so used to looking at a screen, but for theatre it’s deadly to compete with movies or TV,” he said. “Theater is a place to do things you can do nowhere else.”

Tickets for the show Tickets for Enchanted Forest are $15 for adults, $11 for students ($2 off for Orcas Center members) and may be purchased at www. orcascenter.org, by calling 376-2281 ext. 1 or visiting the Orcas Center Box Office.
