Clean sweep for CRC Voters toss out key elements of charter; 6-year reign of 6-person council ends in May By Scott Rasmussen Journal editor
First three. Then six. Now, back to three again. With a mighty push from the smallest of the three largest islands, San Juan County voters stripped away key components of the Home Rule Charter and reassembled the legislative and executive branches of county government in a manner much like they used to be. Proposition 1, which reduces the county legislative body from a six-person council down to three
full-time elected officials, and which reestablishes county wide elections for those offices, drew 55 percent of ballots cast in the Nov. 6 election, a total of 5,397 votes, all precincts combined, as of Friday. An estimated 150 ballots cast in the Nov. 6 election have yet to be counted, according to county Elections. The three-person council will take over the helm of county government in mid-May, following a county wide election April 23. It will replace a six-person council with three newly elected office-holders – Bob Jarman, Marc
Forlenza and Rick Hughes – all of whom will be sworn into office in Jan. 1. “We’ll have three councils between now and June,” Prosecuting Attorney Randy Gaylord said of the upcoming turnover at the top. Nowhere was Prop. 1 embraced more enthusiastically than on Lopez Island, where the Charter Review Commission-backed amendment sailed by in greater than landslide-like proportions, 84 percent. Voters on San Juan, where Prop.1 narrowly passed, and voters on Orcas, where it failed by a narrow margin, essentially canceled each other out. That Lopez would side heavily with Prop. 1 was not unanticipatSee Sweep, Page 4
Voters on San Juan Island sent a clear signal they were ready for change, ousting a pair of County Council incumbents in the Nov. 6 election and replacing those two veteran politicians with a firsttime council candidate and a firstever candidate for public office. In the race for the San Juan South Council position, longtime islander and San Juan Island Fire Department Commissioner Bob Jarman collected 53 percent of ballots cast in the District 1 contest, earning 889 votes to Lovel Pratt’s 795, to prevail over the first-term County Council incumbent. Me anw hile, Friday Harbor Bob Jarman businessman Marc Forlenza, in a first-ever bid for public office, garnered roughly 100 more than his District 3 rival, two-term County Council incumbent Howie Rosenfeld, to win a council seat with 54 percent of ballots cast in the district, which comprises the town of Friday Harbor, Brown Island and unincorporated areas of Turn and Pear points. About 150 ballots had yet to be counted as of Monday’s Journal press deadline. Voter turnout totaled 87 percent in the Nov. 6 election, with 12,019 registered voters casting 10,490 ballots, according to county Elections. Rosenfeld, a two-term town council member before ascending to the county council, cited an
2011 Special Award; Second Place: General Excellence from the Washington Newspaper Publishers Association
upwelling of dissatisfaction with the direction of the county critical areas ordinance update and a coordinated effort among property-rights activists on his opponent’s behalf as a deciding factor in the District 3 Marc Forlenza campaign. “I thought that it was possible if all six of us ran for election we’d all get thrown out because of the CAO,” Rosenfeld said. “The potential negative impacts were way overdramatized. It’s sad, the CAO is a good product. It’s complicated only because it’s flexible.” See Fall, Page 4

our commitment towards value-added jobs and environmental protection, this project doesn’t appear to make a whole lot of sense.” The deadline to comment on the scope of the GPT environmental impact statement is Jan. 21. Nearly 500 people attended an EIS scoping meetKris Lytton ing Nov. 3 in Friday Harbor, and nearly 300 weighed in on the scope of the EIS. Morris and Lytton are joining other lawmakers calling on the governor to convene an emergency task force of state agencies that would coordinate on a cumulative list of issues, concerns and impact topics with the state Department of Ecology, a co-lead with the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers and Whatcom County on the project. “The state has a responsibility to do a rigorous analysis that examines how the new terminal will impact our economy, environment, and transportation infrastructure,” Lytton (D-Anacortes) said. “The only way we’ll get the full picture—accurately and objectively—is if the Departments of Ecology, Transportation, and Commerce aggressively collaborate and share their data with the lead agencies conducting the formal analysis.”
Mayor forgoes utility, tax increase in draft ‘13 budget Citing “new opportunities and recovering revenue,” Friday Harbor Mayor Carrie Lacher released a 2013 draft budget with some new spending, but without tax increases or utility rate hikes. About $350,000 in additional funds will be available from the town portion of the sales-tax increase, approved by the voters in August, for public safety. Lacher pro-
poses the money be used to fund a code enforcement officer, pay for street and sidewalk repairs and installation, and for police and court services. Lacher also proposes to use town lodging tax money to contribute to the Brickworks rehabilitation project. In return, Lacher wants town use of the Brickworks “for a fixed number of days annually”

and wants the Brickworks board to track and report utilization statistics for the facility at events such as the Farmer’s Market. Lacher says she’s “convinced this project will pay dividends to the town for years to come.” On the revenue side, Lacher is asking the county council not impose the stateauthorized 1 percent annual property tax increase, and that scheduled hikes for utility rates, such as sewer and water, be postponed. “I think this will provide a clear message to the citizens that ‘we get it’,” she said. The net result, according to preliminary budget figures presented to the Town Council in October: a 9 per cent budget increase to $10.04 million. — Steve Wehrly

Election briefs Landslide win for GMO ban
It’s a sweeping triumph for the Initiative Measure 2012-4 with 61 percent of the vote. The measure, proposed by organic farmers and others in San Juan County, makes it unlawful to propagate or grow plants or animals in San Juan County which have been genetically modified and provides for penalties and destruction of such organisms. The measure gained an overwhelming 60.89 percent of the initial ballot tally versus 39.11 percent against. “It does give the prosecuting attorney the power to seize and to prosecute but I don’t know where to begin with this,” Prosecuting Attorney Randy Gaylord said about enforcement of the initiative. “It’s hard enough for me to get laboratories to send me blood results for offenders ... and those we need.” In response to passage of the initiative organic grower and chicken rancher Marta Nielson from Orcas Island said, “I’m proud to live in a county that could see the immense benefit of passing this forward-thinking initiative.” Larry Soll, a molecular biologist from San Juan Island, was disappointed but not surprised the initiative passed. He said, “The practical effect on San Juan Island is not large because

Full-time council posts to earn $75K
It took about 70 minutes for the Citizen’s Salary Commission to fix the pay of the new council members under the voter-approved plan that reduced the council from six part-time legislators to three full-time elected officials. The three new council positions will be paid $74,930 per year, plus a benefit package substantially similar to the package for present council members. The vote, confirmed by the county Human Resources Manager Pamela Morais, was five in favor, two opposed, with one abstention. Two members of the 10-person volunteer panel were not present at the Nov. 9 meeting. According to Morais, the commission doubled the present council members’ part-time salaries and added 10 percent to bring the total up to 100 percent of an average council member salary, calculated when the six-person council salaries were set six years ago, at the time the charter was first implemented. Under the amendments proposed by the Charter Review Commission and
approved by the voters Nov. 6, the current six-person council will continue in office until the new threeperson council is selected in a special election in April. Existing council members can file for election to the new council by filing a declaration of candidacy and paying a filing fee before Dec. 15.
Local voters back gay marriage, legalized pot
San Juan County led the state in voting for legalizing marijuana and same-sex marriage, but Lopez Island did even better in approving a property tax hike to fund operation of their beloved dump. Initiative 502, which legalized possession of small amounts of marijuana and authorized state-regulated stores to sell locally-grown pot, won statewide with a 55.4 percent “yes” vote against a 44.6 percent “no” vote. Twenty counties voted for 502, led by San Juan County with a 68 percent “yes” vote. Neighboring Island County tallied a 55.6 percent “yes” vote. Referendum 74, which validated a state legislature-

approved bill permitting same-sex couples to marry, garnered a 53 percent “yes” vote versus 47 percent “no”. Only eight of 39 Washington counties voted “yes,” with San Juan County recording a state-leading 71 percent “yes” vote. The largest approval margin, however, was the 85 percent “yes” vote by which Lopez Island increased their own property taxes by 9.5 cents per $1000 valuation to fund solid waste operations, including recycling and reuse. This margin may be the largest percentage “yes” vote for a tax increase in state history, but that could not be immediately verified.

Fall: Continued from page 1 Whether complicated, flexible, or both, Forlenza questioned the reasoning behind the CAO over the course of the campaign, calling the proposed set of rules overly stringent, unduly burdensome and quite likely unenforceable. “I would support simpler, more common sense regulations that actually sought to prevent harm to our environment while not being overly burdensome on our local economy,” he said. In the San Juan South race, Jarman also campaigned against what he called the regulatory “over-reach” of the CAO. He said the CAO requires updating, as mandated by the state, but added, “the new rules, new regulations, and new findings under the umbrella of what’s being called ‘best available science’ went way overboard.” In addition, Jarman, an opponent of the Charter Review Commission amendments, maintains Prop. 1-3’s approval further demonstrates dissatisfaction for the county council’s handling of the CAO.
Continued from page 1 ed, CRC Chairman Gordy Petersen said. “We were predicting around 80 percent,” Petersen said of pre-election calculations by Prop. 1 supporters. “Our sense was that people on Lopez didn’t think they
felt they were well represented with just one out of six (council members). They may not have as many voters, but the power they have is when they vote as a bloc.” Meanwhile, voters also approved the CRC-endorsed Proposition 2, by 54 percent county wide, putting management of day-to-day county operations back into

“With all three of the amendments (CRC) passing I think it’s clear people want to see a change in how government is run.” Not only is change on the horizon, it could upend Jarman and Forlenza in spite of their respective election victories. Passage of Proposition 1 means their respective terms in office will end five months after they are sworn in, in January, as the council reverts back to three full-time positions, rather than six part-time posts. Still, Jarman intends to enter the race for San Juan’s single seat on the reconstituted council. “I’ve always thought of myself of as a good candidate to run countywide,” he said. “Working for the telephone I’ve been to all these islands, I’ve driven down every road.” Forlenza expects to throw his hat into the ring as well. But after a decade in elected office, Rosenfeld is ready to hang it up. “I wanted to be there for the transition, but I’m not interested in a full-time position,” he said. “At least in this way, I get my life back.” the hands of the legislative branch and creating a position of county manager to carry out the council’s directives. Lopez voters also backed Prop. 2 by a margin of 84 percent. Prop. 2 ends a six-year experiment in separating the powers of the legislative and executive branches of government, ushered in under the charter. The charter called for the council to hire an administrator, a position formerly held by Pete Rose, with sole authority over day-to-day operations and primary responsibility for crafting the county’s annual budget. That responsibility will now reside with the auditor. The provisions of Prop. 2 go into effect following certification of the Nov. 6 election results, slated for Nov. 27. Gaylord said the duties of the manager and that position’s relationship
to the council should be established by the existing 6-person council sooner rather than later. “The council has a real opportunity to show some leadership in defining the relationship between the council and the county manager,” he said. “And I hope that they do.” While Prop. 1 and Prop. 2 will eliminate several key elements of the charter, others remain unaltered, including the process of initiative and referendum, the citizens salary commission, appeals of hearing examiner decision still go directly to superior court, and county elected positions will remain non-partisan. In addition, with voterapproval of Proposition 3 (85 percent), the county council and its sub-committees must adhere to the state Opening Public Meetings Act.

Fourteen years ago, Kerwin Johnson and friends thought an oldfashioned community thanksgiving dinner would be fun. They were right about the fun, but didn’t figure that it would grow to require a crew of 30 to peel, cook and mash 150 pounds of potatoes, bake and carve 28 turkeys and serve 400 people with a free full meal deal, including homemade pie for dessert. Johnson continues to underwrite some of the cost (along with King’s Market,
which donates the turkeys), and tireless organizer Minnie Knych remains enthusiastic about producing the Thanksgiving Day feast. “It gives me a warm glow to see as many as four generations from some families, especially the youngsters and the seniors having such a nice time
talking and interacting with each other,” she said. Knych needs about 10 more volunteers to cook turkeys and as many as 25 more pie bakers. She notes the turkeys are “oven ready” in cooking bags and baking pans to be picked up Wednesday afternoon, and she “welcomes any and

Stay informed, engaged; farewell
I want to thank the voters of San Juan County for their outstanding 90 percent voter turnout. Being informed and participating are linchpins of our citizen democracy.

Finally, my best wishes to my current colleagues going forward and those newly elected with the challenges and changes we face. Howard ‘Howie’ Rosenfeld Friday Harbor
Oktoberfest: time for ‘danke schoen’
The election caused havoc in the journalism world — so many stories bumped for the greater good of politics. This letter was sent to the Journal Oct. 7, 2012: Oktoberfest 2012 — the 18th Almost-Annual — was a grand success. Hundreds of happy islanders celebrated in the Fairgrounds building, transformed into a Bavarian wonderland. Lots of terrific costumes, energetic singing and dancing made this Oktoberfest one of the best ever. The Chamber of Commerce organized it, but the brunt of the work was done by the Lions. Wow, what a great, willing and cheerful group that is. They schlepped and hung huge murals, stages and more… and then they manned the beer garden
with great verve. Our Lions are truly the Kings of this jungle. Also helping was the Rotary Club, and the Soroptimists, who stepped in at the last minute, braving all kinds of unforeseen challenges with smiles on their faces. We sure have wonderful service groups here on San Juan Island, donating so much time in the interests of community and charity. Terry Lush as emcee, Mike Best teaching dance lessons all the way from Salt Spring Island, and Tom Starr leading the ever-fabulous Blaskapelle Orchestra made the evening one the island won’t soon forget. We thank our helpers (way too many to mention by name here) and extend a huge thank you to Kings Market, Oktoberfest’s prime sponsor. This wonderful fall community event wouldn’t happen without the generous support of Islanders Bank, Zip San Juan, San Juan Vineyards and Browne’s Home Center, plus the quiet helpers who allowed posters and banners to decorate their lawns, walls, fences and dumpsters. (Thank you, Brickworks) Mark your calendars for next year’s Oktoberfest, the first or second Saturday in Oktober. Er, October. Danke schoen. Rebecca Parks Events Coordinator SJI Chamber of Commerce

quotes Greg Hertel of Friday Harbor as saying that a coal port in the U.S. would be better than one in Canada, because we’d have more control over a U.S. facility. However, Community Wise Bellingham has done in-depth research and analysis of coal contracts in British Columbia and concluded that only a fraction of the proposed U.S. coal exports could go through B.C. ports, even after planned terminal expansions in Canada. Why? Because the great majority of Canadian capacity is committed by contract to Canadian companies. At most, American companies might ship 8 to 10 million tons of coal a year through Canada, about a fifth of what could ship through the proposed Gateway Pacific Terminal (GPT) at Cherry Point, and “just seven percent of the total proposed Pacific Northwest export capacity for PRB [Powder River Basin] coal considering all six current proposals.” In terms of coal trains, expanded shipments through Canada could mean 3-4 additional trains a day through Whatcom County and Bellingham, while the GPT could mean 18 additional trains a day, 16 of them for coal. In short, though some coal might go through Canada, the impact on Whatcom County, Washington state and the Puget Sound would likely be far, far less than the proposed projects in the U.S. For more information, go to communitywisebellingham.org and, under “Studies” click on “Train Traffic to Canada Analysis.” Or, for a more con-

Save the baby, not the wash
One message of the past local election seems to be the miscalculation of the depth of dissatisfaction among voting residents of the San Juan Islands with their County Council members. Not only were both incumbents dumped, but with the charter change the entire council will be upended when Proposition 1 becomes effective. Post mortem over the election will go on for a long time and blame or dissatisfaction will be handed around in ample amounts. Clearly the unrest and vocal

opposition to the critical areas ordinance and its endless public hearings on incomprehensible details ran deeper than the council members realized. The repeated question of “What is the problem we are trying to correct?” resonated with a larger group than just those who packed the public hearings. Questions about the validity of what was presented as “best available science” continues to cloud the larger issue of what can and should be done to preserve and protect our environment. Yet aside from these issues is the embarrassing revelation that for some time, truly professional guidance for the county council has been sorely absent. Now the county is moving into a new phase of governing by full-time council persons that have yet to define the role of the staff person that they will need to turn to for advice on a wide range of problems.

As I See It
Blame downfall on support of CAO
estructuring San Juan County government is going to be a significant undertaking. But the voters have spoken and the wheels of change are starting to turn. The results are clear, especially on Lopez, where Props. 1-3 garnered more than 80 percent of the vote. It wasn’t the outcome that this publication thought would prove most effective. But in a democracy, majority rules and when one comes out on the losing end the best course of action is not to grab your ball and go home but to embrace the will of the majority, pitch in and move forward. Under Prop. 1, the county council will revert back to three full-time officials elected by all voters of the county, and bring an end to the existing six-person council elected by voting districts roughly equal in population. In addition, under Prop. 2, the position of county administrator will be replaced by a county manager whose duties will be determined and directed by the council. The passage of Prop. 1 means the terms of three newly elected council members, who take office in January, will end in May. A county-wide election will take place in April to elect three council members, each of whom must reside in one of three respective legislative districts. If three or more people file to run in one district, be prepared for a primary election. So, expect a heated election season followed by major changes in county government. The duties of the county manager have yet to be defined and one of the councils — there will be three between now and May — must determine how those departments not already managed by an elected official will be supervised. So, we’re going back to where we were before, and, as was the case then, the effectiveness of county government will depend in large part on the three people that we elect to craft our laws and to manage government’s day-to-day operations. And you.

Election results show dissatisfaction among voters with the direction of the county critical areas ordinance
By Nick Power
y head is spinning thinking of what Tuesday’s local election results mean for the future of the critical areas ordinance, and I fear that we are now at the point of no return, where a misstep by the county will lead to untold economic waste. First, the County Council races: Simply the defeat of Howie Rosenfeld and Lovel Pratt were in effect a vote of “no confidence” in Howie’s and Lovel’s support of the proposed CAO. Here are two self-identified incumbent Democrats, supported by the endorsement of the Democratic Party, in a county which voted 2-to-1 for Obama over Romney, and they both lose. Telling, since both Rosenfeld and Pratt have been two of the proponents of the most extreme portions of the revision of the CAO. Second, the absolute landslide passage of charter amendment No. 3 was a complete repudiation of how the proposed CAO was engineered and drafted — largely in secret and without meaningful public comment. This is a clear repudiation of the proposed CAO and the circumstances surrounding its creation by the electorate. I fear that the, “We’re going to pass this thing come hell or high water” mentality, which seems to be the mantra of a majority of the council, will be fulfilled, and the fundamentally flawed CAO will become law at the behest of what is now a gaggle of lame ducks. But it gets worse, much worse. Because after “Flock of Lame Ducks” No. 1 passes the
CAO, Flock of Lame Ducks No. 2, the newly elected short-term county council, takes over. Here is where it gets sticky. Currently, there is a very serious lawsuit against the county alleging various substantive and procedural flaws which would invalidate the current draft CAO. Just because Flock No. 2 is lame, does not mean that they cannot bind the county and settle the suit and enter into a consent judgContributed photo ment with the plaintiff, Citizen’s Nick Power Alliance for Property Rights. Why would they do that? Fundamentally, because CAPR’s allegations are substantially correct and it would be the right thing to do. But moreover, imagine that some ducks from Flock No. 2 want to experience life as a healthy and vigorous duck, so they decide to run in this spring’s special election. Lame-duckcum-candidate says to himself, “How the heck do I win an election in San Juan County?” Well, being skeptical of the CAO seemed to work for Bob (Jarman) and Marc (Forlenza). Maybe, just maybe, they were onto something. So here we are, at the last juncture for the current council to do what is right and to revisit, and repair, the fundamental flaws in the proposed CAO. If this opportunity is not taken, the council has just bought us all some very expensive tickets to Kabuki theater. Save me the aisle seat. — Editor’s note: Nick Power of San Juan Island, a resident since 2008, has been an attorney, economic researcher, consultant and developer.
Guest Column: reprise
Six to three? Extra-innings for voters Approval of Prop. 1 means more elections in store; here’s how it works
By F. Milene Henley, San Juan County auditor
he Charter Review Commission has proposed a significant change in the structure of county government. If adopted, Proposition 1 would return the county from six district-elected council members to three council members elected countywide. As supervisor of elections, my interest in the election is ensuring that the process is understood, regardless of the outcome. Please note: This article should not be construed as an endorsement of approval or rejection of Proposition 1. Its purpose is to clarify the statutory electoral process. Should Proposition 1 be rejected, the council will continue to consist of six members and the three members elected in the Nov. 6 election will take office in January and will serve full four-year terms. Should Proposition 1 pass, the three newly elected council members will take office in January, but their terms will end in May, following an election in April of three new council members to the three new council positions. Sitting council members may choose to run for the new positions, but would, like other candidates, have to file to run again. For the new positions, candidates must reside in the designated “residency districts,” but would be both nominated (in a “primary” election) and elected (in a “general” election) in countywide elections. The filing period for the new positions would be Dec. 12-14, 2012. Because this would be a filing period unique to San Juan County, neither online filing nor online payment of filing
fees would be available. All filings must be in person, by mail, or by electronic means (fax or email). However a candidate files, the filing fee must be received in the Elections Office by 4:30 p.m., Friday, Dec. 14. If three or more candidates file for any one of the three council seats, there would be a countywide “primary” election on Feb. 12 to Contributed photo winnow the field down to SJC Auditor Milene Henley the top two candidates. Positions for which only one or two candidates file would go straight to the April “general” election. That election would take place on April 23. Two weeks later, on May 7, the April election would be certified, and the new council members would take office the following Monday, May 13. At that time, the terms of the six sitting council members would end. Following the initial election in 2013, council members would be elected at the normal August and November dates. The next council elections would take place in 2014 (for Lopez/Shaw) and 2016 (for San Juan and Orcas). If you have any questions about the process, or would like more information on becoming a candidate, please contact me or elections staff at 378-3357. — Editor’s note: With the passage of Prop. 1, Auditor Milene Henley’s pre-election preview, published in the Oct. 24 edition of the Journal, still offers a timely roadmap for the course of upcoming county council elections.

On Nov 3, approximately 450 citizens attended the Gateway Pacific Terminal scoping hearing — an unprecedented number for one day of environmental action in our community. Together we stood up to protect the Salish Sea from
the impacts of coal export. Eighty-five people gave oral testimony (only three of these comments were project supporters). Concerned citizens outnumbered the GPT proponents by more than 20-to1 at the hearing. The paid GPT supporters stuck a lot of signs in the ground around the school that day, but it was telling to see a line of hundreds of people, wearing red in “no coal” solidarity, relishing in our community, standing next to the unmanned GPT plastic signs. We have the people power. This has been a true

Join the chorus, say ‘No’ to coal
Please use the link above to submit concerns about the proposed “Gateway Pacific Terminal” project proposed to transport coal to China. http://www.eisgatewaypacificwa.gov/getinvolved/comment Also, I encourage you to attend the Seattle scoping meeting: 4-7 p.m. Dec. 13 Washington State Convention Center, Seattle.
Here is some info that I submitted, and the more people that write, the better: Coal causes disease, emits mercury, contributes to climate change, wastes water, pollutes seafood, and destroys mountains; http://thinkprogress.org/climate/2012/07/19/546871/ ten-reasons-clean-coal-isoffensive/?mobile=nc The biggest issue for me is that once it gets to China, they are going to burn it for fuel and it will all come back in the jetstream to pollute our air and water in the rainfall increasing the acidity of our oceans. Bottom line is that there are alternative, renewable, clean energy sources out there that do not do this kind if damage that is only going to increase global warming. Save our planet and put an end to burning coal for energy. Save our orca whales that already have a hard time fishing, and increased vessel traffic will negatively affect their ability to use their echo location to locate food and survive.

‘Thanks’ for the chance to lead
While I am disappointed by my loss, I congratulate Bob Jarman on his election. It has been an honor to serve on the San Juan County Council and to represent the citizens of District 1 and all my fellow islanders. I thank the voters for giving me this opportunity to do work that I mostly love. I thank my fellow council members and all the members of the community who supported me, questioned and challenged me,
and worked with me on the many issues we have addressed these four years. San Juan County is fortunate to have highly qualified and effective elected officials, department heads, and staff, and it has been my pleasure to work with all of you. I am especially grateful for everyone’s resourcefulness and dedication during these years of budget cuts and staff reductions. I am proud of my accomplishments: my leadership on the council in communicating with our state and congressional delegations on a wide range of significant issues, and seeing the council’s priorities addressed at the regional, state, and federal levels; my focus on the Cattle Point Road realignment project to secure construction funding; the establishment of reserve policies and the fiscal responsibility I exercised during this term; my leadership on the levy lid lift and my gratitude to the voters for creating a local mandate

ho knew that one of William Shakespeare’s darkest and most villainous and wicked tragedies could be turned into a musical? Penelope Haskew, that’s who. San Juan Community Theatre’s Family Theatre production company, with director Haskew at the helm, will give Shakespeare’s classic tale of power, ambition and treachery – Macbeth – a new and uniquely heartwarming twist when “Something wicked this way comes” opens a three-day run beginning this Friday, on SJCT’s Whittier Stage. The curtain goes up at 7 p.m. Friday and Saturday, and at 2 p.m. for Sunday’s matinee. With a cast featuring 67 actors, mostly of elementary school age, Haskew and company will uncover unexpected territory in the classic tale and quite likely steal a heart or two along the way with a lively and entertaining spin on a play that was first penned more than 400 years ago. The choice of Shakespeare, in general, and of Macbeth, in par-

ticular, for the Family Theatre’s fall production is two-fold, Haskew said. “With Shakespeare, well, you can mess around with it,” she said. “And the earlier kids do Shakespeare the more familiar it is to them. They’re less likely to be intimidated by it when they have to read it later on and it makes other classics that much more accessible too.” And perhaps because the play features witches, swords, treachery and bloodshed, Haskew said that the cast has tackled its roles with enthusiasm and with poise. Having a good deal of singing and dancing mixed in has helped to keep the budding actors engaged as well, she notes. “They’re getting a kick out of doing stuff that’s supposed to be beyond them,” she said. The troupe’s performance of “Something Wicked this way comes”, adapted by Elizabeth Weinstein, with music by Lea Anderson and lyrics by Bill Siviter, will also feature several original numbers by Community Theatre musical conductor, Conrad. It could prove difficult to think of Lady Macbeth, played by Chiara Power, as anything other than “a shifty, shady lady” after hearing a musical number previewing the murderous and monstrous character arrival on the stage. In addition to Chiara as Lady Macbeth, other leading roles are performed by Hank Erickson (Macbeth), Brian Fleming (the doomed King Duncan), Max Mattox (Macduff) and Lucy Urbach (Weird Sister 1). The play’s narration is provided by a quintet of adults in period costume. The SJCT box office is open Tuesdays through Fridays, 11 a.m. to 4 p.m., and Saturdays from 11 a.m. to 2 p.m. For info, 378-3210.

Changing nature of ‘truth’ explored Ninth-grader Phillip Malloy wasn’t a particularly good student, especially in English. But he loved track, and he also had a habitat of singing along with the national anthem at school. Those three “truths” mingle, collide and become distorted in Ronn Smith’s play “Nothing But the Truth”, based on a novel by Avi, which documents the national controversy that erupted after Malloy was suspended from his New Hampshire school for, as some maintain, that singing thing.

Around Town Climate change in outer space?
Can climate change on Saturn offer insights into changes on earth? Professor Mark Smith believes it can. Smith, dean of Science at University of Houston, will present an early Arthur Whiteley Winter Lecture at 7 p.m., Friday, Nov. 16, in the UW Friday Harbor Labs commons.
ANSWERS TO PUZZLES
A former professor of Planetary Science at the Un i v e r s i t y of Arizona, S m i t h focused Mark Smith his early work on the mechanisms whereby molecules are formed in the extreme outreaches of the galaxy. With the advent of NASA’s Cassini mission to Saturn, Smith and his research team developed techniques to study the chemistry of carbon, which is integral to life. One outcome is the realization that non-human induced climate change
can take place over a short period of time in certain atmospheres. The Whitely lecture series is sponsored by San Juan Nature Institute in collaboration with Friday Harbor Labs. Admission is free; donations accepted. Info, 378-3646, or www.sjnature. org.
