The face of deportation Orcas Island resident is being sent back to Mexico after 14 years by CALI BAGBY Staff reporter

When a neighbor, Natalie White, suffered a stroke it was Benjamin Nunez Marquez who agreed to drive her to the hospital. She was afraid of flying and Nunez volunteered – thinking he had nothing to fear. But in that act of kindness everything would change. It was also an act that coincided with border patrol upping the ante at the Anacortes ferry terminal. Nunez was stopped as he and Natalie drove off the ferry and, when questioned, it became apparent that Nunez was not a U.S. citizen, thus starting him on a path including public outcry, an outpouring of support and a oneway ticket back to Mexico. “He found out not just who his friends were,” said his supervisor Pete Helsell. “But that everyone was his friend,” Nunez, as he is called by locals, was one of eight people taken into custody for possible immigration violations in 2008 after border patrol agents began questioning ferry riders arriving from the San Juans about their citizenship during “spot checks” at the Anacortes ferry terminal. The incident caused an uproar in the islands’ communities and

attracted attention from regional and national media. County Councilman Howie Rosenfeld was interviewed by National Public Radio. Rosenfeld conceded that the U.S. Border Patrol had the authority to conduct its inspections but wondered whether race may have been a factor as those taken into custody were Mexican. Meanwhile, Nunez’s employers, Jack and Jan Helsell, owners of West Sound Lumber Company, hired lawyers and applied for a year-long extension on the deportation so that they could find someone to fill his position at the mill. Local resident Elly Hoague helped to collect letters written by Nunez’s numerous friends on the island and there was even support from Congressman Norm Dicks and Sen. Patty Murray. According to Jeffrey D. Jones, a public affairs officer for Border Control, if a person is found to be an illegal immigrant at a checkpoint they will be refused entry to the U.S. or put into removal proceedings. Once in the process of removal the person cannot apply for citizenship and their fate is determined by an immigration judge. Once they are deported, they can apply for legal status,

but there is a time requirement dependent on multiple factors, said Jones. Nunez said, if possible, he would apply for permanent resident status, but that, following his deportation, he would have to wait in Mexico for 10 years. In February his one-year extension was approved, but now Nunez is scheduled to be deported in four months. But the Helsells have yet to find anything close to a replacement. After placing ads in various media they realized most applicants were either unable to operate the oldfashioned mill or could not relocate to the islands. “He’s an important part of the business – we would be struggling to exist without him,” said Pete, Jack’s nephew who is taking over the mill business. “We needed an extension, but we should have asked for 10 more years.”

Life and loss Nunez left Mexico in 1998 in hopes for a better life and he found one at the sawmill. He was 22 years old and spoke no English when he started the job. When Nunez came to the mill he worked as a helper to the main operator. When the other man departed in 2002,

Nunez took on both positions. Over the years he learned to read and write in English and learned the trade through job training. Nunez is now 36 and works as the sawyer, heavy equipment operator, mechanic, and delivery truck driver. He also manages lumber inventory, oversees the sawmill yard, cuts and delivers logs to the mill and produces cords of firewood. “It was like being in school,” said Nunez. “When I first came here I did not know how to use a wrench, I had never driven a car or used a chainsaw. It sounds

Preliminary county budget totals $47.6 million by STEVE WEHRLY Journal reporter

San Juan County Administrator Bob Jean has presented the county council with a preliminary budget totaling $47.6 million for 2013. The proposed budget represents a five-percent reduction from this year’s $50 million budget. No programs are eliminated, but the budget assumes a reduction of 3.2 “full time equivalent” jobs, although actual worker layoffs are not expected. Total county revenues from all sources are estimated to increase by slightly more than $1

million, including $600,000 from the voterapproved Public Safety Sales Tax and small reductions from other tax sources and from grants for various county programs. Jean’s covering memorandum points out that implementation of budget stabilization measures enacted by the county council should result in the county reaching budget stabilization goals in each of the next three years. Budget stabilization has been achieved at least in part through a series of reserve policies approved by the council, including a required 10 percent ending fund balance, a budget stabilization fund, and mandatory debt service reserve balances.

Budget discussions with most county departments were scheduled for a “special meeting” of the council on Oct. 15. The Public Works, Roads, and Capital Improvement Plan budgets are set for further discussion on Monday, Oct. 29. Public comment will be taken following presentation of all budget sections. The council has tentatively set formal public hearings and further council consideration for Nov. 6, with more public comment, discussion and final adoption of the budget ordinances scheduled for Nov. 20. The deadline for budget adoption, as required by the county charter, is Dec. 16.

funny, but it’s true.” It was also a job, he learned, of sacrifice and danger. In 2003, Nunez lost two fingers in a mill accident. Despite the hardships,

Union backs Hughes and Forlenza by Scott RaSmuSSen Journal editor

County council candidates Marc Forlenza and Rick Hughes earned the endorsement of the labor union representing San Juan County employees in their respective races. The endorsements were determined by majority vote of Local 1849 that attended a Sept. 29 meeting of the union, which represents roughly 125 county workers, and followed a candidates forum hosted by the group earlier that month. “The members determined that both of these candidates represent our best hopes for responsible and practical county leadership,” said Union President Colin Maycock. “It was a fairly spirited debate.” Maycock said the group's executive board decided to conduct a special meeting in which endorsements for county council races would be determined following the candidate forum, but that

not all members support that decision. He declined to say how many members participated. “There definitely are some members that are not in favor of that [endorsements], but we are a democratic organization,” he said. “It’s what the majority wanted.” In a first-ever bid for public office, Forlenza is running against twoterm incumbent Howie Rosenfeld for the District 3 council position. Hughes and Scott Lancaster are vying for the District 4 council position, Orcas West, currently held by Richard Fralick, who is not seeking reelection. Maycock said union members were deadlocked over an endorsement in the District 1 council contest, which pits first-term incumbent Lovel Pratt against challenger Bob Jarman. Local 1849 opted against weighing in on the recommendations of the Charter

YES on 1240 Will Give More Washington Students A Chance To Succeed Initiative 1240 will allow up to 40 public charter schools in Washington state over the next five years. Charter schools are public schools that are free and open to all students, with the same teacher certification requirements and academic standards as traditional public schools, and funded based on

student enrollment just like other public schools. However, charter schools allow teachers and principals more flexibility to meet the needs of students, which is especially important for students who are not succeeding in traditional schools. Please join us in voting YES on 1240.

Parents, Teachers, Civic & Education Leaders Urge YES on 1240

“Public charter schools across the country have a proven track record of helping students succeed, especially those at risk of falling through the cracks. Initiative 1240 brings the best of what works in other states to Washington.“ Dr. Sam Smith Former President Washington State University

“Public charter schools allow teachers and principals more flexibility to meet the needs of students, especially students who aren’t succeeding in traditional public school settings. That’s why I support a YES vote on 1240.” Joan Ferrigno Public High School Principal Seattle

“As a parent of two young children, I understand that every child learns differently. I-1240 provides Washington parents more options to find the best learning environment for our children.” Tania de Sá Campos Public School Parent and Elementary School Parent Volunteer Seattle

“I’ve studied public charter schools across the country, and I support a YES vote on 1240. Initiative 1240 is a well-written law that requires strict accountability and annual performance reviews. And 1240 ensures that public funding stays with public schools– following students just as it does now.” Professor Paul T. Hill, Ph.D. University of Washington Founder, Center on Reinventing Public Education

“As a public school teacher, I’m a strong believer in public education. That’s why I support a YES vote on 1240, to allow public charter schools in Washington. Charter schools give teachers and principals more flexibility to meet the needs of our students… and more options to help them succeed.” Chris Eide Public School Teacher and Co-Founder, Teachers United

“As a proud graduate of Tacoma Public Schools, an advocate for public education and an elected official who cares deeply about our city and state’s future, I urge you to join me and cast your vote for Initiative 1240.” Marilyn Strickland Mayor, City of Tacoma Member, Public Education Task Force U.S. Conference of Mayors

Gaylord weighs in on I-502 County Prosecuting Attorney Randall Gaylord submitted the following: I will be closely following the results of the Initiative 502 concerning marijuana laws. I urge everyone in the county to study that measure and vote. Even if the measure conflicts with federal law, I will use the results to revise my policies regarding the prosecution of marijuana offenses. Initiative 502 is a new approach to marijuana. Though it will be legal in some instances, it will be treated much like alcohol. It will remain a crime for youth to possess or use marijuana, it will remain a crime for adults to provide marijuana to youth, it will remain a crime to operate a motor vehicle under the influence of marijuana. It will be a civil infraction to consume marijuana in public or advertise marijuana. Only private recreational and medicinal use by adults is allowed. Is our state at a “tipping point” in the attitudes regarding marijuana use and possession? I think so. I think people are frustrated by the collateral consequences of marijuana violations under federal law and I believe state law alone should fix the penalties for a state law violation. I recognize that the adoption of Initiative 502 may create a conflict between federal and state laws, which can be problematic for a prosecutor, especially for a border community with the presence of federal law enforcement. While conflicts with federal law should be avoided whenever possible, I will adopt policies that are consistent with the will of the voters and the protection of a safe community.

Volleyball stays strong Vikings endure by MARTY ZIER Sports contributor

The Vikings beat Concrete 3-1 on Oct. 11 and then played in an all-day tournament on Oct. 13 that matched the Vikings against Bear Creek Academy, the number two team in the state. Despite losing, Orcas played tough. The team later beat league rivals the Shoreline Christian Crusaders for the first time this year. Orcas finished the tournament tied for second. On Oct. 16, the Vikings easily beat Cedar Park Christian. On Oct. 18, Senior Night, the girls played against the high-ranking LaConner Braves. Losing the first match

25-14, the Vikings rebounded in spectacular fashion the second, winning 25-23. The Vikings remained strong in the third game up 5-0, but LaConner tied the game at 12 with the duel lasting until a 23-23 tie. The Braves then got the last two points. The Vikings lost the fourth game 25-8, but were ecstatic about winning a game against La Conner for the first time in at least seven years. “In over 20 years of coaching volleyball this was the best senior night I have ever seen,” said coach Gregg Sasan. On Oct. 26, the girls play in the league playoff tournament.

The Vikings hosted the league leading LaConner Braves Saturday at Dahl field on Oct. 20 in a rough 40-0 loss that tested the Orcas team’s resilience, conditioning and inner strength. The tight and well-coached Braves hit the field with a quick, organized no-huddle offense, designed to keep a rapid pace meant to tire out the Orcas defense. Sporting a team of nearly 40 players, the Braves offense started the second half just as strong, testing the youngest Orcas defenders, including freshman Kyle Masters, Mackey Cardinell and Pasha Bullock. But even after questionable hard hit by the Braves that put Viking Spencer Crow to the sidelines, the young Orcas crew never wavered, limiting the Braves to two touchdowns in the second half. Coach Scott Harris said he was impressed with juniors Joey Susol, Keenan O'Brien and Demitri Pence with their determination in such a challenging game. Orcas has a week to regroup for Concrete, another strong league contender. The home game is on Oct. 27 at 1 p.m.

Editorial

To the Editor:

Endorsements: council race and school bond I

t’s an endorsement we’ve been mulling over for months: the Orcas West County Council race. It has been a difficult decision because both candidates, Rick Hughes and Scott Lancaster, are very qualified for the position. Both are businessmen in the community. Both understand critical county issues. Both are dedicated to community projects. Both say they are committed to helping the islands’ economy. We have watched Lancaster tackle tough issues on the school board with intelligence and hard work. Hughes has implemented the Drug Take Back program at his pharmacy and helped bring We’re appalled at reports trash cans to Eastsound. that political signs have the two are pretty been taken down. Please be While evenly matched, it appears respectful of others’ rights Hughes has the slight edge. He seems to have more “big to express their opinions. picture” knowledge when it comes to business and development. Hughes’ work at ESPN and Disney give him more large business knowledge, although it could be argued that Lancaster’s several decades of running hardware establishments gives him an understanding of local commerce. Both candidates are strong and either one will do an admirable job representing Orcas Island on the county council. But Hughes has been involved in a diverse range of local activities, including the cider and mead festival and the PTSA. We like his energy for the job and think he will bring fresh, innovative ideas to the council table.

W

e wholly endorse the $11.9 million bond on this November’s ballot. After two failed bond attempts, this is a significantly pared down version of the previous measures. The money will go towards recommendations made by a committee of local contractors and architects. The firm Mahlum has designed a concept that keeps the existing foundation and calls for remodel work in the middle school, library and cafeteria. A satellite building will be constructed for tech education. That site will also be used to house students when construction is taking place. The bond is for 20 years. The terms are 26 cents per thousand. If approved in November, the tax will go into effect in 2013, but the bonds can be sold as soon as the measure is approved. School administration has worked hard to reduce the scope of the bond. The district received energy grants for heating and plumbing improvements to the elementary building and the siding of the high school. 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 school is making headway in repairing its dilapidated buildings. This bond is a critical piece of that puzzle.

Concern about terminal I’m writing to express my concern about the Gateway Pacific Terminal proposed for north of Bellingham by Peabody Energy (Peabody Coal) and Seattle-based SSA Marine. The negative impacts that coal trains and the burning of that coal would have on people, air, water, and local economies are not worth the relatively few jobs that might be created. I’m concerned about enormous single-hulled tankers loaded with coal and diesel fuel navigating daily through the heavily-trafficked straits around our islands. These Capesize ships have the worst accident record in the industry and, unlike oil tankers, are not required to have a local pilot or tug escort. One oil spill could devastate our marine life and local businesses. Pollution and health impacts aside, this coal terminal is a bad idea economically. We need to put on our 21st century thinking caps, envision and create the kind of energy-related jobs that will support local businesses and a healthy environment. Shipping millions of tons of coal around our islands to be burned in Asia is a poor jobs plan that ignores the challenges of pollution and climate change and passes on way too many costs to us. Now is the exact moment that we can make a difference. The Army Corps of Engineers is asking for comments on our concerns about negative impacts that this terminal could have on our health, environment and economy. I urge people on Orcas to attend: a scoping comments workshop on Thursday, Oct. 25, 5 to 6:30 p.m. at the Orcas Fire Hall; and the Environmental Impact Statement Scoping Hearing at Friday Harbor High School, 12-3 pm on Saturday Nov. 3. This is a Public Commenting Period to governmental agencies to review impacts, similar to commenting before permitting is done in the county. Workshops will also be held on Lopez (Oct. 24, 5pm) and San Juan Island (Oct. 25, 12 p.m.). Shuttles will be taking people from the ferry to Friday Harbor High School on Nov. 3. It’s very important that we show up. You can get more background information at www.orcasnocoalition.net. Sharon Abreu Eastsound

Hughes for council We have an opportunity to elect a “representative” instead of a politician. The other day, Rick Hughes called me to get my opinion on a piece of legislation that he thought may affect my business! He explained that since I was in the district in which he is a candidate, he would like my opinion. What a concept! I don’t know about you, but in my 66 years, no politician or candidate has ever bothered to ask for my opinion. This guy wants to represent us, not just dictate to us. I believe Rick to be an honest person and I know he wants to see businesses and jobs flourish on our island. If you want to know more about him, ask one of his employees about his character.

Lancaster for counciL Ann and I are liberals, but in the last 20 plus years Scott Lancaster and I have “worked” on each other’s rough edges (he is a Republican), as friends will. We both have come to the aisle and softened our “points.” I have watched him on the school board and other non paying community support groups to get things done. Ann and I believe that some of the “gay rights” or “prayer in school” or even “right to life” are put forth to separate us – to take our eyes off the real problems. As a county, as a nation it is the time to “pay our debt” to solve past mistakes and join together – as we must to do these very necessary and tough fixes. Please cross the aisle and join us all for a solution with Scott Lancaster. Steve Rush Eastsound Scott has “stood the test of time.” He has been married 24 years, lived on our island for 20, has two children either graduated from Orcas Island School District or soon to be graduated.

Yes for scHooL bond We urge you to vote YES for our schools! Never in our memory has a proposed school bond been dissected, examined, discussed and finally, endorsed by so many people who know and/or care about building safety, health, structural strength, integrity and learning environments. Never has the need for upgrades been examined so closely. To the possible disappointment of the small boy we observed digging termites out of a corner outside of the music room, our middle school, library and cafeteria/music room buildings and classrooms need serious rehab and upgrade! The school district and school supporters have gone a long way to secure grants and awards to support the upgrade efforts. In addition, the district has re-examined and analyzed the construction needs to find the most reasonable and economic way to address such things as ADA compliance, seismic integrity, energy efficiency as well as effective learning requirements. Now it is up to us to support our children’s learning by voting yes to this $11.9 million bond that will replace the construction levy expiring this year. Environment does make a difference in learning. We believe our kids deserve our best efforts in making sure that learning takes place in safe supportive classrooms and buildings. Please join us in a yes vote for the kids! For more information about this bond, please visit: www.orcasforhealthysafeschools.com. Kevin & Nancy O’Brien, Coleen O’Brien Orcas Island

were able to win an energy upgrade grant in the amount of $900K. We were also successful, thanks to you the voters, in obtaining a matching bond. Together these funds allowed us to revamp the plumbing and heating systems in the 1949 building; the elementary school. The upgrades were done, on time and under budget. Teachers and parents have commented that the elementary school has never been this comfortable to be in in the winter months and the water is not rusty. This matching bond will be repaid by the end of this year. Earlier this year, and thanks to the efforts of our own Senator Kevin Ranker and others, we were awarded a state grant for $1 million to replace the siding on, and the windows in, the high school building; we will also be able to resolve some foundation issues with the Waldron school building. This effort is ongoing and will be finished by November. The siding on the high school will fix weathering and construction defects that were not addressed in the early 1990’s when the building was built. Proposition 1 on the November ballot is for a construction bond in order to continue the progress in making sure that our schools

These buildings are decrepit, have not enough insulation in the walls, the heating systems have never worked right, the rainwater seeps in behind the siding, the classrooms are dark, and engineers have told us that the buildings will be hazardous during earthquakes and so on. The bond measure on the ballot is to fix these problems through rehabilitation. After examination by local building professionals, they recommended to the school board that the foundation, and as much of the existing structures, remain. We took that recommendation and this bond represents that approach. So this election is about the community’s need to have safe schools for our students and staff and about you trusting that the board and administration will deliver, as promised, long lasting, low maintenance, safe and healthy buildings, under budget and on time.

of learning ahead of them in our schools. This construction school bond on our ballot will rehabilitate classrooms of the 1980s. It not only will be used for classrooms but also upgrade the library and the cafeteria and music rooms. Our school needs and deserves this long overdue help. The school board has done it’s homework and by using the expert advice of local contractors and architects, have found a way to keep costs as low as possible. This new bond will replace the capitol levy expiring this year. Our property taxes will stay the same but extend for 20 years. Please vote YES for the bond and remember that the children of Orcas Island ARE our future and they deserve that safe environment. Jane Heisinger Orcas Island

No to CRC changes We are writing to express our strong opposition to propositions one and two. When we moved to Orcas in 1998, the three man council was facing the state required decisions resulting from the voters decision to voluntarily become part of the growth management act. The requirements were unpopular and burdensome, and highlighted for the first time the “bad fit” of this act for a small rural county. The council repeatedly postponed and delayed meeting the deadlines. Two against three “cliques” developed, policy swings and inconsistencies were frequent, and

the work burden seemed overwhelming. Now we are asked to return to that same threeman council by the commission elected to “review” the voter approved change in this system. Also, we are asked to give up having an independent administrator with executive authority that has provided some balance and consistency in local government. We fear this will return us to the days of the council representing not the good of the county, but of its constituent islands. In all levels of government, the principal of democracy is one- man one vote. Adopting the proposed changes would give the same representation to one sixth of the population (Shaw/Lopez) and to the one half that lives on San Juan and the one third that lives on Orcas. It would also, by reducing the number of representatives, alter the closer relationships voters have developed with their council members. The fact that we have been able to speak directly to Richard Fralick has invigorated our interest in and knowledge of county issues. Please reject these proposals and let our present system continue. If you are unhappy, change your representatives, not the constitution of your government. John Mazzarella Orcas Island

LETTERS FROM 8 low council members are speaking out in regard to the charter propositions, I feel compelled to share my perspective. That said, I will serve San Juan County in whatever way the voters choose. I support all three charter propositions. Proposition 1 will improve our charter with county-wide elections for all council positions. This will ensure that council members have a county-wide perspective and county-wide accountability. Council members are most effective when they pay particular attention to the needs and concerns of their district while at the same time being responsive to all citizens, understanding the issues county-wide, and considering the county-wide implications of all decisions. This has been my practice during my first term on the county council. I work 50 to 60 hours a week and make myself available to anyone in the county seven days a week. One reason why I support the three-member council component of Proposition 1 is that this will require that all council meetings and the decision-making processes be noticed and open to the public. This is imperative if the charter is to be a means for the citizens of San Juan County to assert greater control over the actions

of county government (as stated in the preamble to the charter). I support Proposition 3, which will require all council meetings, even subcommittee meetings, to be noticed and open to the public. The main reason for my support of Proposition 2 is budgetary. As hard as it has been to address this recession with budget cuts, workforce reductions and concessions, and the requests to voters for more revenues, it will be much harder to exercise the discipline that will be required to maintain a sustainable budget when the economy improves and to appropriately allocate any additional revenues. The county administrator’s job description is imbedded in the charter. The former county administrator frequently raised the issue of the lack of resources for him to accomplish his job. The charter as it now exists gives a future county administrator the basis to demand a larger share of county resources in order to comply with the powers and duties specified in the current charter. This will not necessarily be in the best interests of the citizens given other county priorities. The charter will be improved by Proposition 2. County government would still benefit from a professional administrator in the form of a county manager. The county council would develop a job description for the county manager

that can take into account the resources available, the current county priorities, and the potential for more collaboration, and, more importantly, economic efficiencies, among the other elected departments. Please join me to improve our charter by approving all three charter propositions. Lovel Pratt County counciil, SJ

Remember Prop. 3 You have read a great deal about charter amendments 1 and 2, but not much about the third proposal. Proposition 3 will ensure better transparency in county government by requiring that all meetings of the county council and its subcommittees must be properly noticed and open to the public. Exceptions include discussions of personnel issues, real estate purchases, and a few other areas, per the RCWs. Transparency in government is essential to assure

If the prosecuting attorney could, in good faith, advise the council first one way and then another, then nothing but the good will of the council (or the threat of litigation) prevents a vote to eliminate transparency.

In 2003, while working at a local Real Estate office and running Permit Resources at the same time, Teri met Sandi, who was vacationing here from Florida and looking for her dream property. By 2006, when Sandi relocated to Orcas, Teri had opened her own real estate brokerage. Sandi eagerly put together a marketing plan and got her real estate license. Now, nearly six years later, the pair continues to hone their synergistic skills, thrive in a tough economy and look forward to a long and fulfilling future together as business partners and friends.

enise Wilk and her husband, known as Captain Dan, have spent a combined 29 years as island residents. This year they celebrate 22 years as operators of Eclipse Charters, their tour and whale-watching business. This year also marks their 22nd wedding anniversary. And with all those years have come plenty of life lessons. “We have learned to be successful through commitment, being consistent and hanging in there through thick and thin,” she said. “We both have skills that complement each other and together we do most of our own work on the boat … We both have learned to give and take what we need from each other.” Denise has had many accomplishments, such as being named Educator of the Year by the Sustainable San Juans 2010 awards.

The Wilks have also made it to the silver screen. In the 1993 movie “Free Willy II,” Denise and Daniel played the “Coastal Marine Patrol,” captaining their 56-foot Orca Express charter boat. And with plenty of experience under their belts, the Wilks decided two years ago to open the Eclipse Charters Wildlife Store next door to the Nest and beneath the Windermere headquarters. “We are able to educate people about the stewardship of whales, wildlife and the nature of the islands,” Denise said. “We have been able to get more people out on the water with the store in Eastsound and our store at the ferry landing.” Denise has selected a variety of native offerings, including wood carvings, silver jewelry, silk screened art, rain jackets, delicate silk-blend scarves in deep blues, greens and mauves, books on native legends, small decorative magnets and brightly hued post-

Virginia Erhardt, Ph.D., Licensed Clinical Psychologist

I was born in Long Island, N.Y., and after leaving there in 1960, lived in various parts of the country, on both coasts. In 1977, I moved to the Atlanta area and after living there until 2009, my partner of 33 years and I fulfilled a longterm dream, moving to Orcas, which feels more like “home” than anywhere we’ve ever lived. Three of our grandchildren live not far away, on the mainland, with the oldest in Houston, where his wife is just finishing medical school. We have taken great delight in engaging in many outdoor activities, often with our dog. We are fortunate to have been so embraced by the Orcas community. Prior to becoming a psychologist, I raised my children, provided services to returning Vietnam POWs and their families, was Legal Advocate at the Atlanta Council on Battered Women, and was a Welfare and Food Stamps Case Worker for Family and Children Services. My doctorate in Clinical Psychology is from a very humanistic program at Georgia State University. I have provided psychological services at Ridgeview Institute, Emory University Counseling Center, the Atlanta V.A. Medical Center, and Shepherd Spinal Center. In 1992, I opened my private practice in the Atlanta area.

Since moving here, I have enjoyed giving to the community in various ways.I’ve loved reading to children at Salmonberry School and volunteering in various other ways through the Lion’s Club. I have taught a number of classes at the library. Most concerned self-hypnosis; several focused on helping people, via self-hypnosis, to become slimmer and healthier. Another class was for people who had recently experienced relationship endings they didn’t choose. It gives me great pleasure and satisfaction to engage with islanders in this manner, donating the proceeds from my classes for the purpose of purchasing additional titles for the library. I am certified in Clinical Hypnosis by the American Society for Clinical Hypnosis (ASCH), the training and certifying body associated only with licensed medical and psychological professionals. I have extensive training in sex therapy and have presented at many conferences in this country and abroad about topics related to human sexuality and relationships.

I love my work and the private practice I’ve developed in Eastsound, and plan to continue in a comfortable state of semi-retirement for a long time. Much of my work involves hypnosis for weight management, smoking cessation, artistic, academic, and athletic performance enhancement, anxiety reduction, self-esteem issues, and pain management. I also enjoy working with people to enhance their relationships, dealing with both general issues and sexuality. I have particular expertise with sexuality and chronic illness, sexuality and disability, and gender variance in adults, adolescents, and children. An interest I have developed in the past five or so years is in Asperger’s Syndrome in adolescents and adults. For more information, visit my web site at www. DrVirginiaErhardt.com. If you have suggestions for classes you might like me to teach at the library, or if you would be interested in discussing setting up an appointment, please email me at DrVErhardt@aol.com, or call me at 317.4555.

cards. The Wilks started collecting art on their first trips to Canada and Alaska. Seeing the old villages and totem poles sparked an interest in indigenous people. It was important for the Wilks to educate people that Orcas was a summer home to Lummi and Samish tribes and others long before the first Caucasian settlers arrived.

For the love of style

New owner of Aurora’s consignment store is looking ahead to a future of helping people find their fashion by COLLEEN S, ARMSTRONG

Sonya Hiltner is the owner of Fashion Fairy, previously known as Aurora Company.

Publisher/Editor

he’s a Southern gal with a flair for fashion. As a lifelong consignment shopper, Sonya Hiltner says purchasing the Aurora Company was a dream come true. “Having the store is like getting to play dress up with your girlfriends all day,” said Hiltner, who purchased the shop from Barbara Wixom in late August. Now called Fashion Fairy Consignment, the space in the Our House Building received a facelift. It now has three dressing rooms, fresh turquoise paint and more floor space. Hitlner has also decorated the interior with fairy treasures and revitalized the clothing displays, allowing customers to browse more easily. Hiltner says the shop carries everything from little black dresses to Carhatt pants – plus plenty of costumes for Halloween.

“I am trying to arrange it where it has a more flowing atmosphere and is filled with quality clothing, accessories and jewelry,” she said. And the “Man Cave” across the hall has more of a selection as well as new socks and underwear. For 30 years, Hiltner was in corporate business management in Alabama. She was also a single mom with three children and shopped at consignment stores. “It’s the only way I could afford to dress in my nice suits and heels for work,” she said. Hiltner moved to Orcas seven years ago because of a long-distance relationship with Thomas Hiltner. “I fell in love with Orcas before I even landed,” she

said. “I knew this was home whether Thomas was or not – luckily he was.” The two married later that year and Sonya started a property care and cleaning business. But Aurora’s always called to her. It was the first store she ever set foot in on Orcas, and Wixom had Hiltner in mind when she decided to sell the business after 15 years. “Many people have asked me for fashion help even before the store,” Hiltner said. This winter, she plans to hold “makeover” evenings twice a month. You can enter your name in a drawing and receive a hair and make-up session, an outfit and a photo shoot, courtesy of Fashion Fairy.

A little fashion history 1900-1920: Skirts were long and full, with a small train like today’s wedding gowns. When the war began in 1914, attention and materials were drawn away from design, and significant fashion developments stopped. 1920-1940: For the first time, women wear pants and short skirts. By the early 1930s, the hardships of the Great Depression create more conservative trends. 1940 – 1960: Due to World War II, drabness and uniformity in clothing became popular. Buttons for any apparel were limited to three per clothing item. 1960 – 1980: Bell bottoms, increasingly short miniskirts and hot pants, and blue jeans are all the rage. This is a time of diverse fashion. 1980 – present: Welcome to the world of expensive designer clothing and women embrace casual, comfortable clothing styles.

Dr. Claudia Kawas to speak Rock climbing and war

by CALI BAGBY Staff reporter

Dr. Claudia Kawas, pictured above, has been working in the field of aging and dementia for almost 30 years. “It’s an oxymoron to say that the older I get, the more interested I am in aging,” she said. About a decade ago, Kawas found data that showed people over 90 were the fastest growing segment of population in most of the world. She said this remarkable demographic is the result of extending life expectancy by 27 years over the past century.

“But little is known about people who live this long,” she said. “In addition, most of us feel that living long isn’t the only important thing, we also want to live well. So I have been trying to learn from our oldest old citizens what we can do to increase our chances of doing both.” Kawas now oversees “The 90-plus Study,” initiated in 2003 at the University of California, Irvine, to study the oldest-old, the fastest growing age group in the United States. She will share major findings of the ongoing study at the Orcas Center, Sunday Nov. 4, 2 p.m. Her talk will discuss factors associated with longevity and delves into questions like what makes people live to age 90 and beyond, what types of food, activities or lifestyles are associated with living longer and what are ways to remain dementia-free in your 90’s? The 90-plus Study primarily investigates certain

lifestyle and dietary factors, and some cardiovascular factors such as hypertension. “We have some surprising results that I will share,” said Kawas. “We also are studying the brain tissues of these people, which has taught us a lot about thinking as we age, and are beginning to do genetic studies.” The lecture is part of the Crossroads Lecture Series, which brings speakers to Orcas Island to share their expertise. The study has encompassed more than 1,600 people, some in terrific shape, others not. “Definitely, contact with so many 90-plus and 100-plus-year-olds has affected me deeply, although the ways are hard to summarize in a few words,” she said. “Suffice it to say they continue to teach me a lot.” Tickets are $10 at Darvill’s Bookstore or at the door.

by CALI BAGBY Staff reporter

(Editor’s note: Before working as a reporter for the Sounder and editor of the Islands’ Weekly on Lopez, Bagby was an embedded journalist with the Army and Marines in Iraq and Afghanistan.) We all break into laughter as the driver swears his undying love for Lady Gaga. Then something explodes beneath us. The vehicle swerves to the right. The truck commander radios to the rest of the convoy that we’ve got a flat tire. Suddenly other armored vehicles encircle us and the tire is changed instantly, as if we were at a NASCAR race. But the mechanics wear armor. Their large black M4 carbines are strapped over their sweaty backs. They work rapidly because no one knows what dangers lurk in the desert – snipers and IEDs are contestant companions of war. But I find the situation hilarious. I am a journalist and the only female for miles in the middle of the desert and the biggest news I’ve had in weeks is a flat tire. Sometimes things are too bizarre to be scary. As we pull away from the side of the road and onto the endless stretch ahead of us, I wonder if I should feel something else. I spent 11 months in Iraq. My mind labored there in the isolation of concrete and barbwire. I returned home to organized four-way stops, manicured lawns and children riding bikes under leafy trees. I felt the phantom limb that was Iraq. I did not miss the disturbingly hungry looks of male soldiers, the groping hands in dark helicopters or the sneers of “Why is she here?” when I wanted an interview. I had three strikes against me: I was female, a civilian and a journalist. Despite everything, I did miss the possibility of something happening. So in my depression, I turn to rock climbing to cheer myself up. I’m no hardcore free solo climber. All it takes is 70 feet and some slab to freak me out. But I love it. So when a climbing trip presents itself, I say yes. We start the climbing trip driving in the darkness. My friend Darrell’s headlights reveal the Joshua trees standing still like monsters with hairy arms. Three of us, freshly returned from a year in Iraq, are

boring Garrett, a recent biology graduate from Montana, about our war stories. Natalie, a MEDEVAC Blackhawk pilot, Darrell, a MEDEVAC Blackhawk crew chief and I have a whole list of gripes. We rant about soggy vegetables in the chow hall, temper tantrums and all the constant grumblings. We haven’t seen much blood and gore, but we’ve been isolated – cut off from our familiar worlds. My year as an embedded journalist with a MEDEVAC unit and an infantry unit came with its empty thrills of running to the concrete bunker when mortars were coming in, even if they were 25 miles away. Most of the time was spent wondering how to fill the day. The horrors of our deployment were subtle, full of walls, not just the concrete barricades or the thin tin of the trailers we called home, but also the walls we built to keep others out. Everything in Joshua Tree National Park, Calif., is alive. Lumps of green and reddish shrubbery fill up the wide spaces. Monuments of rock jut out in all sorts of directions as if some great giant boy placed them like building blocks. My return to rock is not exactly graceful. A year away from granite and basalt makes me clumsy and unsure of my steps. My legs shake as I ascend the first climb. Over the next few days we travel to Red Rocks, Nev., where the red rock walls nestle between the desert floors and the brown hills are dusted with snow. Natalie and I break away from the guys and call our climbing adventure the “Estrogen Hour.” Up I go, leg shaking, breath cramped inside my ribcage and my heart thumping. Four days later I finally feel comfortable again on rock. Yet on the last climb of the day, a gust of wind knocks a contact lens out of my right eye. Without depth perception I have to feel the rock below with my fingers before stepping up. An hour later, back in the warmth of the van, I continue describing my terror on the rock. By now all discussions of Iraq have dissolved for more entertaining topics. Several days later I am home. I feel a nagging sense of depression. I start to look for my next job. My first location choice: Afghanistan.

Women in history These Orcas Island women were important figures in the develop of the community by TOM WELCH

Orcas Island Historical Museum

Sarah Jane Fry Tolerance and welcoming acceptance are natural traits of pioneer women, and in the early days of white settlement on Orcas Island in no one was this more true than in the person of Sarah Jane Fry. Born in New York in 1837, Sarah first came to the island in 1870 when she and her husband, John N. Fry, built a log cabin and settled on a homestead in Eastsound. One of the first white women on Orcas Island, Sarah became well known for her hospitality, her willingness to help others, her invaluable service as a midwife, and her dedication to temperance. In those days there was

no dock or other landing site at Eastsound, so all new arrivals had to disembark at the Langdon lime kiln dock some four miles from the head of the bay. Orcas Island was virtually roadless at that time, so the newcomers had to lug their belongings over a rough trail to Eastsound and find a place to stay. Fortunately for them, there was always a warm welcome awaiting them at the Fry homestead, which Sarah ran somewhat along the lines of a boarding house. John and Sarah Fry had seven children: two sons and five daughters. One daughter married E.V. Von Gohren, who was later the central figure in the development of the hugely successful orchard business on Orcas Island. John Fry became Justice

of the Peace at Eastsound, which position no doubt proved helpful some years later when Sarah joined forces with “Reverend” Sydney R.S. Grey to convince a man busily engaged in building what was to become the first saloon in Eastsound that such an enterprise was not welcome on Orcas Island. It is a testament to her strong belief in temperance that the saloon-builder soon decamped for other shores. Sarah Jane Fry passed away on May 24, 1900, at her home in Eastsound, and is interred at Mt. Baker Cemetery.

The women of the Fry family, who homesteaded on Orcas in the late 1800s. early settlement days and can only make imperfect judgments from the testimony of others, but it is perhaps very telling that Sarah Fry’s obituary noted that “... she was beloved by all for her motherly kindness and unbroken patience through many trials and tribulations which few could have borne as long as she did.” We can only imagine.

When the museum decided to honor those special people who have made significant contributions to Orcas Island history, Jane was unanimously chosen to be the first recipient of the Historian of the Year Award. Jane Willis was born on Dec. 8, 1913, at the Willis family homestead near Obstruction Pass on Orcas Island. The Willis family farm was founded in 1868, and is one of the few family farms in Washington State that has been in continuous operation for more than 100 years. They have also been honored and recognized by the National Weather Service for their longstanding operation of an official Weather Station at their farm. The youngest child in her family, Jane received her elementary education

at the Olga schoolhouse. Education has always been an important part of the Willis family tradition – Jane’s mother taught at the Newhall school in the days before Rosario was established at Cascade Bay. Jane worked for many years at the school in Eastsound, and later operated a very popular Secondhand Store at Barfoot’s Blockhouse in Olga. Jane also enjoys a very prominent reputation at the Washington State Grange, where she has been a member for the past 75 years. The Orcas Island community has benefited greatly by her contributions to our island society, her love for our history, and her exemplary service as a role model for each of us.

Floral & Gift Boutique An opportunity to work at a resort on Orcas Island for the summer brought me here 30 years ago. Nest was created 7 years ago after having spent a LOT of time working in Restaurants, Hotels, B&B's and making pottery. Nest provides flowers for all occasions - Birthdays, Prom, Anniversaries and of course Weddings. Orcas themed gift baskets, unique gifts , houseplants and delivery is offered as well. In addition to the ongoing loyalty of my local customers I also have my partner Dave Page to thank for my success.

Halloween’s origins date back more than 2,000 years to the Celtic holiday Samhain (SAH-win). Halloween is inspired by the night before Samhain, when spirits were thought to walk the Earth as they traveled to the afterlife. Fairies, demons and other creatures were also said to appear during this time. On Orcas, ghosts might not be making an appearance, but there are plenty of spooky events to fill your Halloween calendar. Just keep your eyes peeled for any spirits still celebrating Samhain.

Turtleback adds 140 acres The San Juan Preservation Trust has acquired a property on Orcas Island that will add more than 140 acres to the Turtleback Mountain Preserve and permanently protect the entire ridgeline of the mountain. Turtleback Mountain was widely presumed to have been completely preserved in 2006 when – thanks to an outpouring of public support – 1,578 acres of the mountain were saved from development. The 30-acre “head” of the turtle, which was donated to the trust in 1990, is separated from the preserve by a privately held 111-acre property. The owners had begun to prepare this property for residential development when

The five-month course begins in January and finishes in May. • Oct. 28, 1 to 3 p.m. on Orcas Island: Heartwood House, 71 Langell Ln. 1 to 3 p.m. Applications are available as a download from the website.

they learned of the preservation trust’s interest. The parties agreed on a price of $1 million. The trust identified $600,000 towards the purchase price, including $500,000 from its own investment funds and $100,000 from four lead donors. After a summer fundraising effort, the trust’s board of trustees unanimously agreed to proceed with the project. With $990,000 now committed, the trust continues to fund-

raise to meet its total project goal of $1.15 million. The $160,000 outstanding balance includes funds needed for the purchase and trail building expenses and a stewardship endowment. With this acquisition, the Turtleback Mountain Preserve will expand to include both the 111-acre purchased property and the “head.” The trust plans to work with the land bank to merge these three properties into one single preserve.

Mildred Sandwith Mildred Louise Sandwith passed peacefully in her sleep early Monday morning Oct. 15, 2012 after watching the Sunday night football game and cheering about the Seahawks’ win over Brady’s New England Patriots, in her apartment at the Village at the Harbour in Friday Harbor, Wash. By her choice and pre-arrangements, her body was immediately transferred to the University of Washington School of Medicine, for

medical and surgical teaching and research. Though she will be immensely missed by a huge family and many friends, especially those interested in sports, she continues to give to all by willing her body to medical science. Eventually her ashes will be cast over the grave of her beloved by all husband “Pat” Perry John Sandwith, who passed March 3, 1985. At 97.5 years young Mildred still was very active at “communicating,” contributing to the San Juan Historical Society, playing bingo, exercising and watching and “critiquing”

all sports – especially tennis. Just two years previously she was ADAMANT about operating her riding lawn mower to help mow her own lawn on the farm she and Pat worked and where they raised their family of five children and where she resided until late last year. Mildred worked for attorney Sam Buck, for the fish cannery, and then for San Juan County engineers and contractors as an accountant/bookkeeper. Pat and Mildred’s five children produced 12 grandchildren, and 15 great-grandchildren. After decades of living and caring for herself in her

farm home, with the help of family and periodic nursing, during the last 10 months she lived in her apartment at the Village, after a few EMT assistance/flights, hospital and convalescing stints. At each facility, she received great care from family, medical care givers such as Dr. Gossom and many more too numerous to mention, as well as many young and old friends. Mildred was born to Lyle and Agnes (Wright) King on May 14, 1915, in the old Sam Bridges house on Guard Street, interestingly where her first two of five children were also born.

She Staunchly defended any “opinion” that was identical to her own! Her advice to “older people” is, “Obey your doctor.” She did not smoke nor consume alcohol, which helped protect her health and life to 97.5 years – a good and healthy lesson for our young as well as “older people”! A celebration of her life is being planned for Nov. 17, at 1 p.m. in the Friday Harbor Presbyterian Church, with a reception to follow. A full obituary is to follow. In the meantime more info about Mildred Sandwith is on the site about her 95th birthday party May 2, 2010

Benjamin Ray Crane Benjamin “Ben” Ray Crane, 48, of Eastsound Wash. and formally of Challis, ID, passed away unexpectedly on Thursday, Oct. 11, 2012 in Eastsound. He was born on March 2, 1964, the son of Earl and Hazel (Skeen) Crane. Ben grew up in Challis and was an active outdoorsman. His great joy and first priority were his four daughters, after the death of his first wife. He was a taxidermist and also a heavy equipment operator. Ben was an amazing single parent, who would do anything for his girls, who he included in everything he did, includ-

ing hunting, fishing camping and taxidermy. He was a jokester whose laugh was infectious. Ben moved to Eastsound, Wash. 14 years ago, and just recently married Kristen Bickmore, a longtime companion. Ben was truly an honest, fun and loving man who will be greatly missed. He is survived by his wife Kristen; daughters, Colleen and Tiffaney Crane

SJ432304 Published: The Journal of the San Juan Islands, The Islands’ Sounder. October 24, 31, 2012. NOTIFICATION OF INTENT TO OBTAIN CUSTODY. Per RCW 79.100, San Juan County intends to take custody of the derelict vessels “(unnamed sailboat)”, with registration # WN5925ND in Shoal Bay on November 5, 2012 and “Illusions”, with registration number WN2227NG in Friday Harbor on November 6, 2012.
