Help in the wake of disaster Orcas resident Sheila Gaquin was one of several islanders who flew to the East Coast to help with Hurricane Sandy relief efforts by COLLEEN SMITH ARMSTRONG Editor/Publisher

When Sheila Gaquin took a Red Cross training course last year, she never imagined it would lead to 10-hour days of delivering supplies to Long Island home owners. After Hurricane Sandy battered the East Coast in late October, volunteers across the country were called in to help with relief efforts. Gaquin, who initially became part of the Red Cross to help with disaster planning for her Deer Harbor neighborhood, didn’t take long to say yes when she received the call. “It was mind boggling – there were miles and miles of destruction,” she said. “The winds weren’t the issue, it was the water … it’s low elevation there, and sand buried cars and bikes – all you could see were the handle bars. In New York, 350,000 homes were damaged beyond repair.” Gaquin says one neighborhood burned down after salt water got into the electrical units. Firefighters stood chest deep in water while putting out the flames. There was also humor amid some of the destruction. One family put a sign beneath a vessel sticking straight of their house: “Thanks, Sandy. I always wanted a boat.” The hurricane impacted 24 states from Florida to Maine and west across the Appalachian Mountains to Michigan

and Wisconsin. The bulk of the damage occurred in New Jersey and New York. The storm also devastated portions of the Caribbean. When she flew out on Nov. 16, Gaquin assumed she would be assigned to a shelter, which are stop gap measures until displaced people can find more permanent housing. By the time she arrived, most of the shelters were packed up, so she was appointed to “bulk distribution.” Every day at 6 a.m., volunteers would get into school busses and drive two hours out of Manhattan. They would then load up trucks with supplies like food, blankets, coolers, diapers and bleach – an item that Gaquin says became “like gold” because it could remove mold from the massive water damage. She would drive through Long Island neighborhoods and hand out items. Gaquin wouldn’t be back in her New York hotel room until after nightfall, at which point she collapsed into bed. Most of the residents in the Long Island communities were working class folks who Gaquin says “never accepted help for anything.” “Their wealth is invested in their home, so it’s really devastating,” Gaquin said. “The hardest part was seeing older

Where once there was six, now there will be three. The special filing period for candidates for three new San Juan County Council positions was held last week from Dec. 12 to 14. The Special Election will be held to fill the positions created by the passage of Proposition 1 in the November election, reducing the six-person council to three. Prop. 1 was one of three propositions devised by the Charter Review Commission and passed in the election. Prop. 2 replaces the executive county administrator position with a county manager and Prop. 3 mandates that all

Secret Santa for students

by PAULA TOWNE Orcas School

The sixth grade students of Orcas Elementary are receiving an early present this holiday season. Thanks to an anonymous donor, the class has been given sets of books so they can take part in classic reading circles. Students will spend the rest

of the school year reading the likes of such great authors as Truman Capote, John Steinbeck, Louise May Alcott, Salmon Rushdie, and many more. With luck, the books and discussion groups will become a springboard to a lifetime of enjoying the richness of classic works. To make the project more engaging, students created their own guidelines for the reading project. They meet twice weekly coming to the circle representing a character from their novels and then discussing elements of imagery, plot, and theme. Thus far, students are excited by their new project and have been coaxing each other to keep up with the reading schedules. The books were purchased through Darvill’s Bookstore; where Jenny

t won’t happen to me. That’s what many on the East Coast thought about experiencing a major natural disaster. Sheila Gaquin, an Orcas Islander who volunteered with Hurricane Sandy relief efforts, said she encountered residents who donated to the Red Cross throughout their lives, but never imagined help would be needed in their own neighborhood. In the San Juans, we can be lulled into a sense of safety because we experience so few confrontations with Mother Nature. But we are at the mercy of the ferry, and if we are cut off from the mainland, we’re left to survive on our own. Now that she is back home, Gaquin says the importance of disaster preparedness feels more critical than ever. The San Juan County Department of Emergency Management agrees. According to their public outreach materials, everyone needs to be prepared for one week on their own. Neighbors taking care of neighbors is also valuable. It’s something Gaquin saw firsthand in the Long Island communities she visited. Every week, the local Kiwanis group held a barbecue for those struggling to pick up the pieces of their shattered lives. Churches, volunteer groups, employers, businesses and nonprofits all play a role in both preparing for and responding to a disaster. According to the Department of Emergency Management, communities throughout the Pacific Northwest are subject to a number of potential natural disasters such as fires, flooding, severe storms, earthquakes, dam failures, volcanic eruptions and landslides. Emergency services and government agencies may not be able to respond to your needs immediately. “We cannot stop these disasters from occurring, but we can limit their impact on us and those we love. Contrary to what you may think, the chances of being killed or injured in a disaster are very low. More likely you will be unable to live normally in your home,” according to The website has a step-by-step guide to disaster planning along with information for building a comprehensive family emergency preparedness plan. We can’t control when a natural disaster will hit, but we can take steps to ensure we aren’t scrambling to survive in the aftermath of devastation. We always think it won’t happen to us – until it does.

Island Sinfonia was given the most amazing gift since its beginning as a small chamber orchestra more than 20 years ago. The Orcas Island Chamber Music Festival provided the opportunity for the Miro Quartet to give a master class to Island Sinfonia last Friday during their recent Leaves of Gold concert tour. Thank you Aloysia Friedmann, Victoria Parker and Joyce Stone for making this a possibility and Moana Kutsche for coordinating the details. Aloysia, Josh Gindele, John Largess, Daniel Ching, and Will Fedkenheuer were inspiring, practical in their teaching style and great fun. We also appreciate the extra effort the students made to attend the class, and the instrumentalists who came from San Juan, Shaw and Lopez. We are still in a state of euphoria from the experience.

Support Orcas Center It is the season of giving and a time when many of our island community organizations reach out to us for financial support – support needed by each to do the good work they do. The Orcas Center is one such organization. Supporting Orcas Center is a way to support the arts on Orcas. It features the talents of local, national and international actors, musicians, artists and craftsmen and gives all of us a place to be entertained and to entertain, to learn and to teach. It strives to present a variety of programming to appeal to the island’s diverse community at reasonable prices. The arts feed the soul and inspire us. They can broaden our horizons. They make us feel. There are a variety of ways to support the Orcas Center; business, family and individual memberships, volunteering, attending events and more. Please support the Orcas Center so it can continue to remain an active, valuable part of our commu-

A community treasure to protect and nourish Over the 21 years that my wife and I have lived on Orcas Island, many of our fondest memories have related to Orcas Center. There were famous performers, including Taj Mahal, Natalie MacMaster, Lionel Hampton and, for the past 15 years, the amazing musicians of the Orcas Island Chamber Music Festival. Equally fond memories revolve around local productions of “Gypsy,” “A Christmas Carol,” and “Enchanted Forest.” Seeing friends and neighbors on stage, in costume, performing lines and taking bows is “just the best!” Performing alongside them is great, too. Our entire family (of three) appeared in two recent productions; the experience was wonderful. Then there’s the “Whale of a Show,” Martin Lund’s “One World Concert,” the Orcas Horns, Olga Symphony, and Orcas High School Band and Strings. Poetry readings in the Madrona Room, casual intermissions with cookies and punch, formal ones with wine and hors d’oeuvres, amazing sculpture, painting and photo exhibits, and my personal favorite, the annual Orcas Elementary School art exhibit. All are fond memories. And “OMG!” as our daughter would text, the big-screen Metropolitan Opera and British National Theatre productions are astonishing!

Orcas Center to be a community arts treasure that we must protect and nourish. We know from the “curtain speech” on Center Stage that “ticket sales only cover about 20 percent of Orcas Center’s annual expenses,” because ticket prices are kept low. Translation: The other 80 percent has to come from somewhere! It comes from annual memberships and generous donations. That’s what keeps the doors open. Arts organizations are struggling nationwide because financial times are uncertain. Attendance is up, but memberships and donations need to be up, too. We’ve just renewed our family membership for 2013. We hope to make an additional donation sometime during the year, maybe help sponsor an event with others. All these years, Orcas Center has been here for us. Now we want to be here for Orcas Center, when it needs us most. We encourage other families with children to help, too. Ed Wilson Eastsound

Orcas Recycling will lower rates Recently the local media reported on increases in recycling rates at the Orcas Island Transfer Station. We’ve received a lot of questions on this topic and wanted to clarify. First, the recycling rate will change — but it will not affect many self-haulers. Second, this rate change has nothing to do with The Exchange/Orcas Recycling Services taking over management of the Orcas transfer station. The rate for recycling will change on Jan. 1 because San Juan County — which still operates the transfer station — had to re-negotiate an expiring contract with Waste Management, the company that currently takes our recyclables. Waste Management increased the rate significantly in the new contract. Right now when you take your recycling to the transfer station you pay $5 — whether it’s one can or Professsional Design Services 206.343.9907


up to six cans. Starting in January you will pay $3 per can. If you generally bring two cans per trip, this will hardly affect you (you’ll be paying a total of $6 rather than $5). The Exchange and Orcas Recycling Services is expected to take over management of the Orcas Island Transfer Station by the end of March 2013. At that time we expect to lower rates for recycling and garbage. Recycling will cost $2 per can and garbage will be $7 per can (compared with $10 now). If you go over the scale you will pay $300 per ton compared to today’s rate of $373 per ton. We also intend to reintroduce the option of sourceseparated recyclables at the site in 2014 — for which the drop-off fee would be free. We can do these things because we are a non-profit, working with the community in mind and in collaboration with other local enterprises. We look forward to building a program for solid waste management here on Orcas that will provide a model for communities everywhere. Thanks for your support! The Exchange / Orcas Recycling Services

SANDY FROM 1 people who had worked so hard and now have to start all over at that stage of life.” Gaquin, who taught school on Shaw Island until her retirement in 2007, says the work was exhausting but gratifying. Her husband, Howard Barbour, is now considering Red Cross training as well. “It’s an array of retirees,” Gaquin said of the response effort. “There were definitely young people but also a lot of grey hair. There were volunteers from all over the world – Canada, Japan, Israel – and all over the United States. Red Cross partners with local relief groups, so there isn’t any wasted time. We all felt like we really contributed.” Four volunteers from San Juan Island were also deployed, but Gaquin never saw them. The Islands Chapter of the Red Cross

Yuletide baroque and beyond Instrumental musicians have “jazzed up” melodies familiar to them in the style of their day for centuries. On Orcas, this tradition has inspired more than six years of creating a performance that blends the best of jazz and classical worlds. The “Yuletide Baroque and Beyond: Jazzin’ with the Classics for Christmas” is Thursday, Dec. 27 at 2 p.m. at Emmanuel Episcopal. Admission is free, and donations will be accepted. The concert features soprano Linda Tsatsanis, jazz flutist Martin Lund (who will also play clarinet and piano), classical flutist Jeffrey Cohan and jazz guitarist Gene Nery.

These artists meld their musical perspectives in celebration of the Yuletide season, say organizers. Tsatsanis, Lund, Cohan and Nery will team up to bridge contemporary improvisational jazz and the “art music” of baroque and renaissance times. This group is known for virtuoso improvisations on Yuletide favorites, and their unique renditions of classical standards such as arias from Handel’s Messiah.

The performers Tsatsanis, of Seattle, has been described as “possessing sheer vocal proficiency, a bright, flexible voice, big but controlled, shaded with plentiful color” by the Boston Globe. Lund, a Orcas resident and musician, is known for

Soprano Linda Tsatsanis moving freely through any style of music from classical to rock to jazz to Broadway. Nery, also an Orcas resident, has traveled the world performing as a vocalist and guitarist. Cohan has performed as soloist in 25 countries, both on modern and early transverse flutes from the Renaissance through the present.

Polar Bear Plunge moves to other end of lake by MARTIN TAYLOR Special to the Sounder

You can say “I Survived!” twice over if you take part in Orcas Island Rowing’s Polar Bear Plunge on New Year’s Day. You will have survived the “End of Days” on Dec. 21 and the icy grip of Cascade Lake on the first day of the New Year of 2013. At 11 a.m. on Sunday, Jan. 1, the hearty souls of Orcas will charge headlong into Cascade Lake en masse. Within a few seconds they will re-emerge shocked into a clearer perspective on the world and ready for what

2013 may bring. The theme is “I Survived!” This year the plunge will take place at the south end of the lake rather than its usual location. Kokanee salmon have been seen laying eggs in the swim area at the north end of Cascade Lake, which is the usual location for the plunge. To avoid disturbing any salmon eggs, it has been relocated to the Environmental Leaning Center beach in front of Orcas Island Rowing club’s boathouse. Parking is limited, so car pool. The event is a low key

fundraiser for the Orcas Island junior rowing club. Donations are accepted at the plunge. Each year a commemorative T-shirt is created.

the boards, combining for 17 rebounds. Viking scoring was lead by Gates with 21, Zier 13 and Stanzione 10. “Defense won it. We kept them out of the paint and pushed them to the outside wings,” said Coach Rich Madden.

This will be the 16th annual plunge. The first one was on Jan. 1, 1998. That year local sheriff ’s deputies Ray Clever, Ed Commet and Herb Crowe were auctioned off to jump in the

lake. Be sure to use your imagination by dressing appropriately (or better still, inappropriately) in costume for the theme. To buy shirts, call 376-4507 or email

The Lady Vikings played Darrington as well for a league contest versus the Loggers that ended in a 54 to 36 loss. Facing a strong Logger squad with five more games of experience, the Vikings started strong, opening with Alicia Susol hitting a three pointer followed by an assist to Aliviah Garcia for a layup. But after down at halftime 23 to 26,

the Logger’s defense dominated the second half keeping the Vikings to only 13 second half points. Coach Greg Sasan summed up the game: “We got beat on the boards – out rebounded and out hustled. We played hard and I am really proud of the girls.” Both teams next play at Concrete Wednesday, Dec. 19.

Born Feb. 2, 1944 to Otto and Thelma Cavalli in the small mining town of Red Mountain California. The family moved to Santa Barbara in the early 50's. They owned and operated Cavalli Brothers Dairy. John was the first born followed by Michael of Santa Barbara, Richard of

Maureen Hannan 6/20/1939 -11/23/2012 Maureen Slater Hannan, 73, died peacefully Friday evening Nov. 23, 2012 at Dartmouth Hitchcock Medical Center in the company of her siblings and in the care of consummate professionals. Mrs. Hannan was born in New Brunswick, NJ on June 20, 1939 to Lillian and Joseph Slater. During her childhood her family relocated to Brookline, VT, and Maureen attended the one-

Mission Viejo, Nina Davis of Las Vegas and David of Santa Barbara. After High School in Santa Barbara John served in the United States Air Force from 1963 to 1967 as an electronics technician. He went back to school after the Air Force to continue his studies at Santa Barbara City College where he was a mathematics and geology major. After finishing his schooling he took a job with Vercal Plastics and quickly rose to the position of superintendant of plant operations. He was very proud of his seven years there. John moved his family to Orcas Island in the early

1980’s. He was an electrician and the maintenance director at Rosario Resort for almost 20 years. In his years on Orcas Island, John was a reserve deputy for the San Juan County Police Department as well as a volunteer, and later battalion chief in the Orcas Island Fire Department. He was dedicated to serving his community, and he loved island life and the wonderful friends he had there. John leaves behind his devoted wife Billie of Ellensburg, his four children: Todd, Callie, John Kevin and Corie all of the Seattle area, and their mother, Marylee Tilla of

Lake Stevens. The memorial service is open to all who wish to share their last respects for John; it will be Wednesday, Dec. 19 at 1:30 p.m., at the Tahoma National Cemetery in Kent/Covington. Memorials in John’s name may be given to Hospice

After high school, Maureen matriculated to Springfield College where she majored in physical education earning a B.S. before moving on to the University of Washington and a M.S. in physical education and a true passion for the Huskies athletic teams! Maureen moved to Seattle, Wash., where she began teaching high school physical education and coaching gymnastics. After retiring

from teaching, she moved to the beautiful San Juan Islands where she established a working farm with her husband, John Hannan, on Orcas Island named Little Bit Farm. Maureen raised many animals including sheep and horses. An accomplished artisan, Maureen sold her woolen wares at the Artworks on

Orcas Island. A lover of all animals, Maureen had numerous dogs and cats that were truly part of her family on the farm. Following her husband’s death and her own deteriorating health, Maureen returned to Brattleboro, Vt. to be closer to her family. She is survived by her dog, Gabe, and her cat, Ping,

and her siblings: Joseph Slater and his wife Betty of Wilmington, Mass., Deborah Albright and her husband David of Guilford, and Karen Brennan and her husband Peter of Rotunda West, Fla. and her stepsiblings Ernie Martin of Brookline and Kathy Plummer of Meriden, Conn., the children of Burt

Martin, Maureen’s stepfather. She is also survived by her stepdaughters: Sharon Hannan, Janet Hannan and her husband Kevin, and Karen Hannan and her husband Karl. Myriad extended family and friends from both coasts will miss her dearly. A family service will be held at a later date.

ily were, essentially, refugees from 1938 until 1955. Fleeing the war in Europe, she went on to live in Kenya, Uganda, Palestine, Cyprus, returned to Germany in 1955, immigrated to Canada and then moved to Michigan and Texas. After almost 30 years in Texas, and at 88 years old, Else stated that she wanted to have one more adventure and moved to Orcas Island, sight unseen. Among the Orcas

Islanders, she found a home, church and community that she adored and often said that the happiest time of her life was here in the San Juan Islands. Else is on her last journey now, but her friends at Emmanuel Episcopal Parish and at the Orcas Senior Center are likely to remember the vivid stories of her travels for years to come. She is survived by: her daughter, Dagmar Szabados of North Hollywood, Calif.; daughter, Ingrid Gabriel of Friday Harbor; granddaughter, Isabel Gabriel of Friday Harbor; son, Harald Wermel of Rutherford, N.J.; and beloved niece, Christiane Vermel of Red Rock, Ariz. She is preceded in passing by her son, Ivar Wermel and her grandson,

Spencer Wermel. A memorial service and interment at Emmanuel Episcopal Parish in Eastsound will take place in the spring. Arrangements are in the care of Evans Funeral Chapel and Crematory, Inc., Anacortes, Wash. and the San Juan Islands.

Chase away the winter blues Four ways to beat the darkness of shorter days and grey skies by CALI BAGBY Staff reporter

I was invited to a birthday party last week and I welcomed an event to rescue me from another dark, dull night. At the gathering I talked with a woman who told me her secret to not getting the winter blues is walking outside every day – even in the cold and rain. These words made me think, are there some easy ways to keep spirits high when all the world seems dim? So I talked to a few island experts and here what they had to say.


Brain food

Phil Heikkinen, director of the Orcas Public Library, said that books can confirm whatever feelings you have. For instance you can pick up a dark subject, or material that is just entertaining or something uplifting and spiritual. Even books that are purely entertaining, according to Heikkinen, can feed your imagination more than watching TV. “Reading is more active, you

are drawing connections and it’s intellectual,” he said. “Almost like hiking, but you don’t have to leave the room. It’s exercise for your brain.” Heikkinen tries to keep a balance between keeping an equal number of non-fiction and fiction on his night stand. He compares this practice to “running a couple of miles to earn your junk food.” For Heikkinen, having a series written by a good author who provides compelling and interesting characters is a reliable “friend” who you can always trust. “After having a rough day it’s comforting to sit in bed and read a good book and it’s much more cozy than TV,” he said. If people are looking for new reads, Heikkinen and the rest of the staff are always available at the front desk to share their favorite authors and offer suggestions. “It’s a time to share a world for a few minutes,” said Heikkinen. “Reading can increase your horizons, takes you out of the smaller picture and to a lot of different experiences in a short amount of time.” To share your love of literature, join the library’s book club

Let the light in

Dr. Frank James, San Juan County health officer, said that 1 to 2 percent of Americans have a seasonal affective disorder, also known as SAD, which basically means they become depressed when there is less light. SAD tends to affect women more than men and the young rather than older people, added James. Luckily there is an easy solution to this problem. You can purchase lights that mimic the sun by producing 10,000 lux (a measurement of light intensity). James said 30 minutes of exposure to these lights can be helpful. “Some people may benefit from steady exposure or just a couple times a week,” he said. According to the Mayo Clinic, light therapy can be used to adjust daily sleep cycles, which may play a role in mood.

For people facing that level of lethargy, James recommends seeking medication or talk therapy first and then they should focus on getting exercise back into their lives. The recommended does of physical activity is 40 minutes a day. If that sounds like a lot, don’t be alarmed, even every day tasks like cleaning the house or taking a walk can count as exercise. James said as long as you are slightly out of breath, but could still maintain a conversation then you are at the right level of physical exertion. If you can get outdoors dur-

ing the day and combine light exposure while raising your heart rate, that is ideal, said James.


“There is nothing better than coming in and playing with a kitten or a cat to make you laugh during the winter blahs,” said Orcas Animal Shelter Manager Marsha Waunch. And unlike humans, the animals aren’t aware of the winter blues – they just know someone is there to play with them and are happy to return those affections. Taking a shelter dog for a walk gets you out in the fresh air, clears the mind and helps to think positively, she added. “I’m never in a bad mood when I am at the shelter,” Waunch said. “I just get so much pleasure from these sweet faces and furry bodies and knowing each personality.” For more information, visit
