M&Ms musical trio wins Orcas Has Talent Junior Eight adult finalists move on to the big show at Orcas Center on Saturday, Feb. 9 by CALI BAGBY Staff reporter

The Orcas Island Grange came alive last Saturday as six young performers shared their talents on stage. Contestants shined with a variety of skills from singing bluesy solos to original tunes to group numbers with enthusiastic choreography at the Orcas Has Talent Junior Show on Jan. 19. “It’s great to see growth every year,” said Donna Laslo, the event producer. Some vocalists made the audience cry, while others got them clapping their hands and tapping their toes. The junior competition had more than 100 eager audience members filling every seat in the house and cheering on a varied group of young stars. Performers were rated on their stage presence, technical ability and showmanship. All net proceeds from the junior and adult shows go to Orcas Island Prevention Coalition to support

drug-free youth. Sabrina Bailey, 11, Paris Wilson, 12, and Cameryn Thompson, 11, also known as the M&Ms, wowed the crowd with sassy dance moves and killer vocal stylings, performing “Tell Me Something I Don’t Know” by Selena Gomez. The three young performers walked away with not only first place but the chance to compete and win $500 against the adults at the Feb. 9 Orcas Has Talent final show at the Orcas Center. The girls have been best friends for the last two and a half years and said they were happily surprised by their first place title. They’ve been practicing twice a week for the last couple of months. “I’m really excited, we were hoping for the best,” Sabrina said. Singer Stormy Hildreth, 10, came in second place for the juniors, earning her the opportunity to make a cameo performance at the final Orcas Has Talent Show. Singer/songwriter and guitarist

Candidates field questions during forum by COLLEEN SMITH ARMSTRONG Editor/Publisher

Council candidates from Orcas, left to right: Rick Hughes, Lisa Byers and Greg Ayers.

It was standing room only at the Orcas Island election forum, with audience members spilling into the lobby. They kept the questions firing at the District 1 and District 2 council candidates, covering everything from the Critical Areas Ordinance to ferry service during the Jan. 16 meeting. Orcas Councilman Rick Hughes, Lisa Byers and Greg Ayers are vying for two spots in April’s general election. Councilmen Marc Forlenza and Bob Jarman and former Councilwoman Lovel Pratt are the three San Juan Islanders facing off in the Feb. 12 primary. Hughes, Byers and Ayers agreed that the recently approved Critical Areas Ordinance needs some minor tweaking, which will likely take place before the Growth Management Hearings Board. “I am pleased it passed,” said Byers, director of OPAL Community Land Trust. “I applied

some of the CAO rules in an OPAL project, and it wasn’t that hard or scary … but we need to refine it so it’s easy to understand and make sure it’s flexible.” Pratt recommended “moving on” from the CAO because there are “so many other important county issues.” Jarman and Forlenza were adamant that the ordinance still needs a lot of work. Many in the audience brought up inadequacies and inconsistency with the planning department, particularly in regards to code enforcement. Hughes said he has three major goals: localization (a code enforcer on each island), simplification (simplify the code), and communication (an independent hearing board that could hear community grievances). Ayers said the planning department needs “a goal and vision” while Byers wants to see more leadership for the department.

Dobos crowned spelling champ Watson by COLLEEN SMITH ARMSTRONG Editor/Publisher

Eighth grader Tara Dobos took home the Orcas all-school championship spelling bee title for the second year running. The winning word was electioneer. Dobos, who is pictured at left, will go on to the Skagit Regional Spelling Bee. If she advances past that, she will participate in the nationals in Washington, D.C. The participating spellers from Orcas Elementary were fourth graders Flora Lister and Landon Carter, fifth graders Maya Heikkenen and Ian Maier, sixth graders Benjamin Pollard and Sabrina Bailey, seventh graders Liam Griskey-Watson and Kellen Maier, eighth graders Christian Bailey and Olivia Smith. Students from Orcas Christian School

included fourth grader Zoe Miller, fifth grader Logan Babcock, sixth grader Evie Hance, seventh grader Skyler Gregg and eighth grader Stephanie Harris. OASIS alternative learning participants were Dobos, fourth grader Evalie Smith and eighth grader Josiah Rutledge, who traveled all the way from Lakewood for the event. The fourth annual bee was held on Jan. 18 in the Orcas Christian School gym. After several rounds of no eliminations, it was apparent the words were a bit too easy, so judges Colleen O'Brien, Nita Couchman, Steve Diepenbrock upped the ante. Finally, it was down to Dobos, Gregg, Harris, Heikkinen and Smith. Then it was a nail biter to the end between Dobos and Smith, with last year's winner eventually taking the crown once again.

Preserving Island Culture • Improving Island Life What people are saying about Greg “I know Greg has faced challenges in connecting homes to the ESWD sewer system and has, in my opinion, provided creative and fair solutions for homeowners. I feel that Greg has the qualifications, experience and personal drive necessary to address the problems and issues currently facing San Juan County. Therefore, I highly recommend that you cast your vote for Greg Ayers for County Council.” —John MacLeod, Orcas Island “I had the privilege of working with Greg Ayers on the Primary Healthcare infrastructure on Orcas Island. He is a creative problem solver who not only comes up with solutions, but is there to implement them. I really enjoyed working with him.” —Garth Eimers, Orcas Island

“I support Greg Ayers for the San Juan County Council. Greg’s the candidate who combines foresight with insight and ability. We’ll get the job done right with Greg Ayers on the County Council.” —Leonard Wood, Orcas Island “Greg is focused on realistic solutions, not “pie in the sky” ideas that are unlikely to yield revenues, let alone quality jobs. Greg has a pragmatic approach to protecting our island environment. He recognizes the importance of education and sustainable programs for environmental protection and enhancement, while maintaining our island culture and way of life.” —Dave and Jane Cable, San Juan Island

Editorial

To the Editor:

Pay attention!

Everybody, Somebody, Anybody and Nobody

S

omething very curious happened at the election forum last week. After the Orcas candidates spoke and answered questions, a fair amount of islanders left – before the San Juan candidates could even start their opening sentences. We'd like to remind everyone that the upcoming primary and general elections are county-wide. Voters should care just as much about candidates on their Toseecoverageofthe home island as those running from a OrcasIslandelection neighboring community. With the passage of the charter forum,seepage1 amendments this past November, our council will consist of three members. When you get your ballot for the February primary, ALL county voters will decide who moves forward from District 1, San Juan and surrounding outer islands, and District 2, Orcas and its outer islands. Then in April, ALL county voters will vote on two candidates from District 1, District 2 and District 3, which includes Lopez and its surrounding islands. Please be engaged with these elections. Your vote reaches farther than the boundaries of your home island.

Keeping the spirit of words alive

T

he words showed up only when I closed my eyes. With my eyelids pressed down tight, I could see the letters clearly, their sequence emblazoned across my imagination. I went to a small, private school, and our spelling bee included the sixth through twelfth grades. I was fairly confident I would win against the other middle schoolers, but when I was the last one standing against the entire student body, I was filled with euphoria. I embraced my inner nerd with pride – and I still do. But with the advent of auto-correct in both word processing and cell phones, my spelling skills aren’t what they used to be. While the concept is thought to have originated in the United States, spelling bees are held around the world. The first winner of an official spelling bee was 11-year-old Frank Neuhauser, who won the First National Spelling Bee in Washington, D.C. in 1925. Orcas Island students competed last week in the all-school spelling bee for grades fourth through eighth. Congratulations to winner Tara Dobos, who also took home the title last year. As one who has stood before my peers and parents to compete in the game of words, I commend these young scholars for their courage and acumen. – Colleen Smith Armstrong

There were four groups in Washington, D.C. named Everybody, Somebody, Anybody and Nobody. There was an important job to be done and everybody was sure that Somebody would do it. Anybody could have done it, but Nobody did. Somebody got angry about that because it was Everybody’s job. Everybody thought that Anybody could do it. But Nobody realized that Everybody wouldn’t do it. It ended up that Everbody blamed Somebody and Nobody did what Anybody could have. – Author unknown Then they then all went out and played Kick the Can until February and March. Bob Foulk Deer Harbor

Jameson found I just want to take a moment to thank everyone who helped us find our beloved dog Jameson after a hike at Cascade Falls turned into a massive dog hunt. The response has been so overwhelming. Once the word got out via Facebook, I had people I had never met go out of their way to go look for him both night and day. The pain of not knowing where Jameson was, was felt by many and the determination to bring him home was unwavering. After five long nights, Jameson was found by two visitors from California who went to Mountain Lake to take evening pictures. They recognized him from the many posters around the island. Jameson is a tough dog who survived the elements with only a few bumps and scratches, but was ready for a warm bath and a big meal upon his return. We are so grateful for our community! Thank you all for your time and efforts in reuniting our family! Jameson and His Family Orcas Island

Support for Ayers San Juan County is fortunate in the three candidates to be considered from Orcas when voting in the primary on Feb. 2. All are good people who are genuinely concerned about and have contributed significantly to our island community. After much thought, the Orcas candidate that I will be voting for is Greg Ayers. I believe that he is uniquely qualified to serve on the council at this time of stress and change for our county community and government. He has the ability and desire to absorb and digest the many layered and confusing national, state and local rules and regulations that affect our county government and each of us individually. Then, most importantly, he is able to discern new and realistic ways to work within the morass of regulation that exists to improve the financial health of our county, the focus, quality and efficiency of government, support and encourage island based jobs and businesses, and protect the islands’ environment and way of life. Greg has much experience in working respectfully and successfully with others to discern common goals and then find pragmatic ways to make those goals reality. All of us, old timers and newer islanders, hold these islands dear. This is an important primary and election. Please consider Greg

Support for Byers I urge voters to support Lisa Byers for San Juan County Council. She understands what the islands are about and what issues affect us. Her greatest strength is her willingness to listen well and then speak the truth. She is reasonable but not shy about kindly saying what she thinks is right even when it’s unpopular. But it’s her understanding of what local government should be, her stated priorities for San Juan County, that make her a great candidate. She gets it. Her website lists the three big goals that will guide her efforts. 1- Sustaining a healthy, diverse and vibrant community. No one narrow issue is so critical it overcomes the importance of balancing many factors to sustain a good community. Priorities change but the main goal for county government couldn’t be stated better. 2 - Fostering job opportunities that strengthen island culture. Without jobs with living wages that fit our culture, healthy island communities cannot prosper. 3 - Aligning a balanced budget with citizens’ priorities. With Lisa on the council, citizens will have a member who has proven she is willing to listen with an open mind to determine what’s most impor-

Gratifying year for the Food Bank

Realizing hard times were not over for many of island families, the food bank board officially launched another year-end fundraising and food drive in late September that continued through December 2012. The community response was astounding, say organizers. Everything from money buckets at Woods Cove to pictures with Santa at Country Corner; gingerbread houses for auction by Susie Frank to the Madrona Red Hats passing their hats at lunch, and other generous individual contributions helped the food bank surpass its monetary goal of $37,000. And some real stories are found in the food donations that were received from community members as young

letterS FROM 4 tant and then to act wisely. Please vote for Lisa Byers for county council. David Zeretzke San Juan Island I write to recommend Lisa Byers who is seeking office #2 on the county council. I think she is an outstanding candidate for that office who will serve the public well. I first met Lisa in about 1999 when she was seeking to acquire from the Land Bank a portion of the property around Buck Park, which it had recently acquired. Lisa was acting on behalf of OPAL, the nonprofit organization on Orcas providing permanently affordable housing. When we met she invited my participation in a public citizen forum conducted by OPAL to determine how to best use that land. As a consequence, I attended perhaps a half dozen public meetings conducted under her supervision. I came away

as five. Here are some examples: • During the month of December, Pawki’s for Pets held a pet food drive and matched what was received – up to $500 worth of pet food was donated to assist recipients in caring for their pets. • Children in Sherry May’s kindergarten class at Orcas Christian School, while studying traditions of Brazil, collected “white gifts” such as sugar, potatoes, rice, flour and oatmeal and gave them to the food bank. • The Senior Center Holiday Faire collected food for admission to the faire. • Glenwood Springs Hatchery/Long Live the Kings donated 50 salmon. • Commercial fisherman Mark

extraordinarily impressed by Lisa’s skills fostering enlightened conversation and most particularly, in soliciting from each of the participants their respective views on the subject. Since then, my wife and I have been regular contributors to OPAL and have met periodically with Lisa to discuss OPAL’s goals. Lisa has led OPAL for 17 years with extraordinary skill which has resulted in more than 100 family homes on Orcas which are permanently affordable. By her candidacy, she is offering her executive expertise to the community at large. I think it is an offer, which we, the Orcas electorate, should seize. Bob Henigson Deer Harbor

tory here, which gives him a good sense of what has come before, how we got here, and why it matters. His experience running a crucial business in Eastsound gives him a great feel for what it takes to make a living here, as well as daily contact with a broad spectrum of the community. As a former Fortune 100 executive, Rick has the experience and ability to think creatively about ways to improve our islands’ economy. I particularly liked Rick’s view of government, as he expressed it at the League of Women Voters on Orcas this week: simplicity, localization and communication.

Simplify the laws and government processes so that they are easy to understand and serve the people of the county. Planning and county services should be appropriate for our county as a whole, and localized for each island. The government should communicate what it is doing and how that will affect the citizens. Rick is putting these concepts into practice during his tenure on the county council this winter. I urge you to give him the opportunity to do so for the next four years. Moana Kutsche Eastsound

CAO news: workshops and more The San Juan County Council has scheduled a public hearing for Feb. 12 to consider whether to postpone until May 1 the effective date of the recently approved updates to the Critical Areas Ordinances. Councilwoman Patty Miller said the delay would provide time to “ensure a solid implementation of the new regulations.” The postponement would give county staff an additional two months to complete a series of workshops with design professionals, planning staff, real estate professionals and develop materials to help individual

citizens understand the new regulations before they go into force. The public hearing on the postponement is scheduled to begin at 10:15 a.m. during the council regular session. The department of Community Development and Planning currently has CAO workshops for Jan. 30, 8:45 a.m. – 1:45 p.m. at the Mullis Street Fire Station, 1011 Mullis Street in Friday Harbor and Feb. 6., 10:15 a.m. – 3:15 p.m. at the District 2 (Eastsound) Fire Station, 45 Lavender Lane in Eastsound.

Search for new San Juan County manager begins At its regular session on Jan. 15, San Juan County Council started the county manager recruitment process. The council has selected the Prothman Company of Issaquah to serve as its agent and to coordinate with county human resources personnel. The council directed Prothman and county staff to make a special effort to find qualified local candidates for the job as part of their recruiting efforts. The council has asked for community input at its Jan. 29 meeting about the knowledge, skills and abilities to seek in the search for the new county manager. The input will be used in refining the job description for the county manager position and developing a community profile for the recruitment. The recruitment and review of candi-

dates will be led by the current council and involve the candidates who are now running for the three-member council along with representatives of the community and county staff. The current plan would have the process completed in time for the members of the new council to conduct final interviews and select the county manager on their first day in office, May 13, 2013. Since the departure of former county administrator Pete Rose in June 2012, Robert W. Jean has served as the head of the county’s administration; first as county administrator pro tem, then as interim county manager after voters approved charter amendments which passed executive authority to the county council.

FORUM FROM 1 “We also need to compile case law that could help explain how the code is interpreted,” she said. When asked about how they could help generate revenue, Hughes stressed the importance of job growth. It was a sentiment that Jarman echoed later in the evening. “Who wouldn’t want to work from home in the San Juans?” Hughes said. “We need to support things like OPALCO’s broadband initiative and approach companies like Boeing and Microsoft.” Ayers had a similar plan, but on the export side of things. He said local craftsmen should be selling their work off island and farmers can sell seeds for “10-fold greater than the finished product.”

Wednesday,Jan.23,2013•TheIslands’Sounder

Byers said if additional revenue is needed for the county budget, then she would go before the community and seek additional sources like grant funding. Former Washington State Transportation Commissioner Bob Distler asked the District 1 candidates what they planned to do about Washington State Ferries not planning for any growth in the San Juans’ service. “Advocating for ferry issues was a pri ority for me,” she said. “We need to have DOT recognize the ferries as our marine highway and incorporate it into legislative packages.” She also said the state’s stipulation that all ferry construction take place in Washington eliminates the state from receiving federal funding or getting more competitive bids. Forlenza agreed and said WSF is “the toughest nut to

crack.” “How much does ‘Build Washington’ really help the state?” he said. For coverage of the forums on San Juan and Lopez, see www.sanjuanjournal.com and www.islandsweekly.com.

The next steps After the Feb. 12 primary election, all voters in the county will vote for three council members – one from San Juan, Orcas and Lopez – in the general election in April. Because only two candidates are competing for the District 3 council seat, which comprises of Lopez, Shaw and surrounding outer islands, both Jamie Stephens and Brian McClerren move on to the general election. Each member of the three-person council will be paid an annual salary of $75,000 plus benefits.

Obituaries James Edward Ekberg Dec. 21, 1941 - Jan. 10, 2013 Jim made the transition suddenly while driving home after spending time with a circle of friends at the Lower Tavern. He passed away very quickly as a result

of a ruptured aorta. Jim’s life was not unusually long, but it was very full and interesting. A complete obituary may be found at the following site: www.jamesekberg. wordpress.com A celebration of Jim’s life will take place on Sunday afternoon March 31 at Shifsky’s house on Mt. Baker Road, where he enjoyed many a potluck dinner. May his spirit soar and find freedom at last!

Kathleen C. Greiner Kathleen C. Greiner, 67, of Deer Harbor, Wash., died Friday, Dec. 14, at home. The bride of Gordon G. Greiner, who died in 2006, Kathy was an animal lover, a passionate and voracious reader, a watercolor enthusiast and a professionally trained chef. In 1998 Kathy and Gordon retired to Orcas from Denver, Colo., where she was a docent at the Denver Zoo and graduated from the Rocky Mountain Culinary Institute of Boulder and Provence, France. On Orcas, Kathy was involved in the Garden Club and the Women’s Auxiliary of Deer Harbor. She was famous for the croissants that she made for fundraisers and, with Gordon, compiled a cookbook, “Past and Repast: Deer Harbor Recipes and History.” When she and Gordon purchased their first boat, a 48-foot Tally Craft, she learned to co-pilot it. Kathy wrote in the mid 1990s, while still in Denver, that her dream was to “live

close to water, surrounded by nature and beauty. Stars are visible in the night sky and natural sounds surround me. We have lots of friends and are part of the community.” Kathy’s dream came true on Orcas. Kathy is survived by her brother and sister-in-law, George and Linda Rolby of St. Louis, her niece and nephew Lauren and Daniel, also of St. Louis, her step-son David Greiner of San Clemente, California, stepdaughter Gail Greiner of Nyack, New York, two grandchildren Nikolai and Anna Stern, and her African Gray Parrot, Charlie Byrd.

Vikings play Shoreline and Mt. Vernon by MARTY ZIER Sports contributor

The Viking basketball teams ventured to Shoreline Christian last week where the girls lost and the boys won against the Crusaders while the Mount Vernon Christian Hurricanes later swept both Orcas teams. On Jan. 15, the Lady Vikings (4-4) tamed the Shoreline Christian Crusaders (9-4) in the first

quarter, leading 12-11 but fell to the wrath as Bella Hermesch, the six-foot Crusader forward, dominated rebounding and kept the Vikings from pushing the ball into the paint. By half, Orcas was outscored 15-8 and found themselves down 47-31 after the third quarter. Facing a 16-point deficit, the Vikings made a valiant run but ultimately lost 57-47. Scoring for the

Vikings was led by Hannah Brunner-Gaydos, Shelbi Rogers and Alicia Susol with 10 points each, Bella Nigretto 9, Aliviah Garcia 6 and Lana Bronn with 2. The Viking boys (5-4) hit the Hurricanes (1-13), leading 19-13 by the first quarter and stretching it to 35-25 at half. Viking guard Jack Gates diced and sliced his way through the Hurricane defenders, gath-

ering 26 first half points followed by forward Jake Zier with 9, but the Hurricanes never fell far behind. By the end of the third quarter, the Vikings led 45-38 but could not shake the Hurricanes. Entering the fourth quarter Vikings Chase Drake, Devon Stanzione and Jack Russillo stepped it up with scoring to secure the Viking win, 62-55. Scoring was led by Gates with 36 points,

Zier 15, Stanzione 6, Drake 4 and Russillo 1. On Saturday, the Lady Vikings (4-5) faced a strong Mt. Vernon Christian Hurricane team (11-5) and kept pace leading after the first quarter 15-12 and 25-23 at half. Momentum changed in the third quarter with the Vikings missing shots and the Hurricanes outscoring the Vikings 21-14. The Vikings brought it close 39-36 with 6:36 left in the game, but that was all the Vikings could muster, losing 56-47. Scoring for Orcas

was led by Brunner-Gaydos with 16 points, Nigretto 13, Susol 10, Bronn 4, Garcia and Rogers both with 2. The Viking boys (5-5) expected a tight game against the Mt. Vernon Christian Hurricanes (6-10) and led 17-16 by the first quarter and 35-26 at half. Starting the third quarter, the Hurricanes stepped up their defense, ending the quarter tied 48-48. Orcas could not keep up the pace and lost 69-58. Orcas scoring was by Gates with 41 points and Zier 17.

Stories that weather can tell by CALI BAGBY

M

Staff reporter

Replenish your mind, body

& spirit

arlyn Myers started her talk with good news – the coldest day of the year has passed. According to historical records, Marlyn said, Jan. 3 is when temperatures are lowest. This fact and many other weather statistics, as well as a few good stories were shared with more than 70 members of the community at the Garden Club’s meeting on Orcas Island microclimates held Jan. 16. After the Orcas Island Garden Club asked two state climatologists to speak at previous meetings they decided to hear a word from two island weather experts – Garden Club President Maryln and Olga resident John Willis, whose family has been keeping records for more than 120 years. You can read John’s weekly weather recordings in the Sounder. Marlyn and John, both gifted with the art of storytelling weaved weather into her own tales of romance, trials and family history. Marlyn’s interest in climate was enhanced by a course she took in college. It was also in that class that she met a young man named Don Myers. They had a few things in common: their mothers were both named Dorothy Myers and even their grandmothers shared the same name and birth date. To top it off they both shared a curiosity for the everchanging nature of the elements and how it could affect their lives. Marlyn in her gardening and Don in his fishing both watched the sky above and followed temperatures to know what to expect and how to react.

“We are impacted by weather, whether we garden, fish or travel,” said Don, also speaking at the meeting. “We need to know what is going on around us.” When the Myers moved to Orcas, they began gathering weather information and have done so for the past seven years. At the meeting, Marlyn discussed the rainshadow, which reduces rainfall in the islands compared to Seattle because of our location in reference to the Olympic Mountains. She talked about how weather differs significantly on the various areas of Orcas Island. Olga is different than Eastsound and Deer Harbor can be different from both. Marlyn told the Sounder last spring that there are two types of soil on Orcas – waterfront with no nutrients and inland soil, which is much better. “I have a friend who lives on Deer Harbor who has the most beautiful ripe tomatoes, beans and berries,” said Marlyn. “That does not happen where I live.” To find out what kind of soil you have on your land, you can purchase a pH soil testing from any garden supply store. Marlyn also gave that friend a rain gauge and was surprised to see how much different rainfall is on Deer Harbor compared to where the Myers live near Rosario. Marlyn and John also delved into snowstorms of the past, like the storm of 1916 where Orcas had 51 inches of snow in January and February. Another storm, on Thanksgiving of 1985, left many people without power and John said that people had to cook their turkeys in the fireplace or with a blow torch.

More recently, there was a winter in 2006 that left 15 inches of snow in the middle of the night. “The rhododendrons didn’t know what happened,” said Marlyn. For John, the memory of one snowstorm reminded him not only of the harshness of the elements, but a time of strife in his family. In 1950, he was only ten years old when temperatures plummeted to eight below zero and the wind blew fiercely between 70 to 80 miles per hour. His mother and father were both in a sanitarium in Seattle with tuberculosis and he was under the care of his extended family. “It was a pretty traumatic time,” he said. “Many trees came down and it was so cold.” The weather is something that not only stirs up darker periods, but is something ingrained in John’s ancestors, a legacy he has helped continue. John’s grandfather, Cecil Willis, began keeping weather records on Orcas in 1890. The Willis family is one of nine families in the United States who have kept continuous records in the same location for over 100 years and were invited to Washington D.C. in 1990 to be awarded for that achievement. They also found out that they had the distinction of having the longest record without a break. “We always wondered if anyone used these records,” said John. It turns out people were paying attention. And judging by the keen audience at the recent meeting – they still are. For more info about the Garden Club, visit www.orcasislandgardenclub.org.

MISSING BACKPACK from Orcas Island High School

Last week, on Monday, during lunch time, my son put his backpack down in a hallway by the stairs at Orcas Island High School. When he came back for it, his backpack was gone. The backpack contained a Rawlings brand, brown and black, left handed, first basemans glove. The glove is important to him, as it is the last thing his grandpa bought him before he passed away. The backpack also had a jump drive, red headphones, and his school work. However, the thing we want most is the glove. We are offering a $50 reward for the glove and $60 for the complete backpack. No questions asked. Your help is greatly appreciated.
