Election rewind: Pratt vs. Jarman
Town bestows $100K on ‘B-Works’
Ayers falls, Byers, Hughes advance in District 2 council race
Lodging tax fund tapped for Brickworks remodel
By Scott Rasmussen Journal editor
By Scott Rasmussen Journal editor
Town officials weren’t quite sure what to do about the Brickworks project three years ago. While most acknowledged that restoration of the dilapidated building on Nichols Street, with its footprint reaching into Sunshine Alley, could help spark a revitalization in the heart of the town, the Friday Harbor Town Council shied away from investing public money in the fledgling project, which at that time was awash in uncertainty. Skepticism surrounding the project only increased when the County Council quashed a pending purchase of a conservation easement on the building by the Land Bank, which would have helped subsidize its remodel. Times have changed. The San Juan Islands Agricultural Guild, owner of Brickworks, last week announced the receipt of a $100,000 matching grant from the town, allocated by way of the town lodging tax fund. Under terms of the agreement, the grant is earmarked for capital expenditures and facility related improvements, and will be issued as matches to other private or public donations, or grants or gifts See GRANT, Page 4

Cats in the crosshairs
With a convincing victory in the Feb. 12 primary, former councilwoman Lovel Pratt emerged as front-runner in the race for the District 1 County Council position, outpacing council incumbent Bob Jarman, who finished second in the three-way contest, by 937 votes. Jarman, who unseated Pratt three months ago in the November election, collected 1,821 of the 5,692 District 1 primary votes, or 32 percent of ballots cast, leaving Friday Harbor businessman and coun-

Feral cats living at American Camp had better watch out. Starting Feb. 19, the Animal Protection Society and the Ray of Hope Animal Sanctuary will inaugurate a joint program with the National Park Service to first trap, and then spay or neuter, feral cats at American Camp. The program —- dubbed as “experimental” for now -- may be expanded to English Camp at a later date,
cil incumbent Marc Forlenza, 19.5 percent, as odd-man out in the three-way primary. As the top two vote-getters, Jarman and Pratt will advance to the April 23 general election. “I feel I had a pretty good showing countywide,” Pratt said. “It really is a countywide campaign and I’m going to continue to do that.” Voter turnout totaled 52 percent for the countywide primary, with 50 ballots remaining to be counted, according to county Elections. Jarman, who trailed Pratt in nearly all of the 19 county voting precincts, knows there’s ground to make up in order to claim the reconfigured council post in April’s general election. Jarman campaign manager, wife Susan Jarman, said that the candidate, who two weeks ago had

Two more appeals against CAO Legal challenges total five, with two new William H. Wright and the San Juan Builders Association have filed petitions for review with the state Growth Management Hearings Board opposing the critical areas ordinances. The petitions include both general and specific allegations that the CAO ordinances are not in compliance with the Growth Management Act and should be returned to San Juan Island for further county action. Wright and the Builders Association have filed their petitions “pro-se”, meaning “for themselves” and without attorneys. Friends of the San Juans, the Common Sense Alliance and P.J. Taggaris Co., the three other petitioners, have all used attorneys for their filings. Critical areas ordinances are updates to the county’s comprehensive plan written in compliance with the state’s growth management laws. The state’s Growth Management Act originally required San Juan County to update the ordi-

Continued from page 1 English and American camps; she estimated that ten feral cats live permanently in American Camp, with others just outside the boundaries. Many are the offspring of abandoned pets. It is unlawful to leave any animal in a national park, she said. The park will utilize “Have A Heart” traps that weigh about 17 pounds apiece. Ray of Hope will provide the traps; the Animal Shelter through a grant will pick up funding for sheltering, surgeries and vaccinations. The trapped cats will be examined, spayed or neutered, vaccinated and, if determined to be inappropriate for adoption, returned to the park. They also will be tested for feline aids and
nances by 2006; the county finished it’s update, which is now in the appellate process before the Growth Management Hearings Board, in 2012. The appellate process now underway will result in determinations by the Hearings Board, probably before late summer, 2013, whether the ordinances comply with the growth management laws. If the ordinances are ruled not in compliance, they will be returned to the county council for further action, subject to further appeals and possible lawsuits. On Feb. 13, the hearings board requested all petitioners to prepare a detailed statement of issues for review and discussion at a pre-hearing conference of all parties the first week of March, possibly in Anacortes. William Roehl, the presiding officer for the GMHB, said in a memorandum to all parties that a number of form and content shortcomings needed to be corrected and that issues common to more than one party need to be consolidated. The effect of the memorandum is to consolidate all five petitions into one. — Steve Wehrly

Eric Swenson, Communications Director for the Global Ocean Health Program of the Sustainable Fisheries Partnership and National Fisheries Conservation Center, will review the work of
leukemia as a safeguard to domestic cats in the area. Tens of millions of feral and stray cats are reported throughout the United States. A blog by Russell McLendon on Mother Nature Network estimates that cats kill as many as four billion wild animals per year and, worldwide, have pushed 33 species to extinction. Other research suggests that about 40 per cent of all animals killed by domestic and feral cats are birds. The neutered cats will have their ears “tipped”, a procedure that involves removing about a quarter inch off the tip of the cat’s ear while it is anesthetized during the TNR process. As time passes, ear-tipping will help distinguish between ferals and strays, avoiding unnecessary surgery, confinement, or euthanasia. Not everyone is onboard

with all aspects of the program. The San Juan Island chapter of the Audubon Society objects to returning the feral cats to the outdoors, but Taylor said the program would begin next week as planned unless she is instructed otherwise by the National Park Service. Barbara Jensen of the Audubon Society, also a cat owner, says the best solution is a public education program to convince
cat owners not to abandon their pets. Jensen points out that pet abandonment is cruel and inhumane: many cats die of starvation or are killed, and the survivors live short, difficult lives. Taylor agrees. “The best way, obviously, to treat this problem is not to abandon a pet in the park,” Taylor said. “If this humane approach doesn’t work, then we may have to consider other options.”

on mainstream islanders, middle-of-the-road voters.” The local electoral landscape is drastically different than it was just three months ago. The Feb. 12 primary election follows on the heels of November’s voter-approved changes to the county charter, which reduced the size of the county council from six elected officials to three, redrew the council legislative districts from six to three as well, and instituted countywide elections for each of the three newly created council posts. In addition, changes to the charter turned those three council offices into full-time positions, with responsibility for both county legislative duties and its day-to-day management. The three full-time council members will earn $75,000 a year, plus benefits. In the District 2 primary, which, like the District 1 race, featured three candidates competing for two slots in the April election, affordable housing advocate Lisa Byers advanced easily into the next round, garnering 47 percent of ballots cast in the primary. Byers, director of Orcas Island-based Of People and Land, or OPAL, a permanently affordable housing group, and a first-
time candidate for political office as well, drew 2,772 of the 5,850 ballots cast, outpacing her two opponents, Greg Ayers and Rick Hughes, by slightly more than 1,000 votes apiece. Byers believes local government has a role to play in promoting economic activity and, consequently, she said she has a “personal interest” in ensuring that government operates as efficiently, effectively and as equitably as possible. Elected to the council in November, as part of the soon-to-be-eliminated sixperson council, Hughes outdistanced Ayers by a narrow margin, with a total of 100 votes separating the two, to finish as runner-up in the District 2 primary, good enough to advance to the general election as well. He expects to spend more time and resources in the head-to-head campaign against Byers than he had in the primary. “I think we did pretty well with the amount of time and money we spent on the campaign,” said Hughes, who expects that the state of the local economy to remain a hot topic in the general election campaign. “It’s definitely about jobs. We need to find a way to create more jobs for people.”

San Juan County’s newly appointed fairgrounds and events manager has a clear challenge ahead. That’s according to her new boss, county Parks and Fair Director Dona Wuthnow, who hired Maddie Ovenell of Lake Oswego, Ore., to fill the position formerly held by Rev Shannon, who stepped down in September. Ovenell, who began her tenure as manager of the San Juan County fairgrounds Jan. 7, most recently spent five years as community events specialist with Lake Oswego, where she managed the city’s farmers’ market and coordinated a variety of events, including a Fourth of July parade, summer concert series, harvest festival and an assortment of holiday events. “The top priority is making both the Fair and the fairgrounds sustainable as long term community assets,” Wuthnow said of the primary task ahead for Ovenell.

Disregard those howls of hysteria
My gratitude to the San Juan County Council for appointing Tim Blanchard to the Planning Commission and my admiration for Tim in placing himself in the line of fire so often directed at council committees from disgruntled citizens on all sides, has given way to dismay that Mr. Blanchard’s appointment has been challenged. Withdrawing this appointment would amount to caving into the divisive forces in our county who predictably appear whenever someone who thinks independently and outside the ideological boundaries of partisan advocacy has the effrontery to enter the local dialogue. Some of the objections to Mr. Blanchard’s appointment are hysterical and puffed up with unwarranted and self-righteous indignation. The appointment has been characterized as “negligent, irresponsible, unethical, and an insult to the citizens of our County.” May I note as a citizen that I am not insulted? As to the process through which Tim was appointed, the record seems to show that planning commission members including Bob Gamble, Karin Agosta, and Barbara Thomas were all appointed under the same process. (Special meeting of the council, minutes of 11/8/2011). So shall we throw them all out? If the clarity of thought, civility, and rationality Tim expresses in his response to
David Dehlendorf could be duplicated by his detractors, we would all be better off. In my opinion, if Chairman Jamie Stephens and members of the county council (who voted 6-0 to approve this appointment) succumb to the bullying we are seeing in opposition to Tim Blanchard, we will all be worse off for the loss of an excellent addition to the planning commission.

Troubled by bias, PC out of balance
As someone concerned about protecting the islands from detrimental development, I am perplexed by a recent council appointment. At the first opportunity to appoint someone to the planning commission, this new council’s choice was a prominent spokesperson and attorney for the Common Sense Alliance, their vice president, Tim Blanchard. Yes, it is difficult to find people willing to serve on any advisory body, with its demands of time and energy. But the announcement of an open position only appeared on the county website and in December only. Now, with Mr. Blanchard’s appointment, three of the nine-member commission are officers or board members of the CSA. That has me concerned. A single board member of a land-use advocacy group would not be

remarkable. However, three CSA Board members on a commission closely involved in land-use issues seems unusual at the very least, particularly when the CSA is in active litigation against the county. Having one-third of the PC composed of people who are suing the county does not seem sensible, transparent, or accountable. With the PC soon working on our shoreline master program, to which these three members likely have strong objections, can we then trust the PC to make responsive, appropriate recommendations to the council? The council needs to assure citizens and advocacy groups of their ability to be publicly heard and their concerns recognized. Advocacy is accommodated in public hearings; it should not be imbedded within this commission formally charged with advising the county. Disappointed and puzzled by the council’s appointment, I fear that the PC’s advice to council will not reflect the concerns of our citizenry, but rather the desires of one small, wellfunded group. Let’s hope this appointment and the way it was orchestrated was only poor judgment and not a politically motivated decision. B.A. Keller Lopez Island

We have opinions about issues. We have ideas about fixing problems. Hopefully we listen to each other with open minds. With countywide elections we need to support candidates either with money for mailers and ads (small change in the scope of things) or with volunteer time doing phone banks, writing letters, helping the candidates campaign. And as voters, what we really want is civility. We don’t need personal attacks on other candidates and exaggerated claims about special interest groups. Come on, this is San Juan County not Congress.

New era of health care? It is indeed
My 17-year-old son recently needed stitches for a knee wound he got while cutting firewood for a friend. Not a bad wound, but too severe for band-aides (12 stitches in the end). I called Peace Island Medical Center ahead of time to let them know we were coming. Nice gal said she’d get the paper work going. We got there and evidently the paper work was started but they needed another 20 minutes to enter all the details. Often repetitive questions. Once finished with my son’s paperwork, they realized he was not 18 so they repeated the whole process with me. (You’d think

So about an hour after arriving we got into the ER and the doctor did a quick and efficient job with the stitches; less than 45 minutes in the ER. Cha-ching, the bill for 12 stitches at PIMC is $1,280. We moved to our farm on San Juan Island 14 years ago and have been somewhat regular customers at the former medical center, a more humble facility where we never paid much more than $100 for the doctor’s time. The new PeaceHealth facility is impressive for sure. As I waited for my son’s turn in the ER I walked around the facility, gazing at fancy woodwork and locally sourced decor. Cool stuff.

ith elections and lawsuits, new faces and a new budget, and the business of a new year to attend to, it’s safe to say there’s a lot of balls up in air within the halls of county government, and a lot of uncertainty in the offices of the county council in particular. Of that we have no doubt. But there are a few items that stand out as deserving the utmost attention regardless of distractions. And appointments to the many county advisory panels and, perhaps more importantly, its quasi-judicial committees are one of those. We’re encouraged that the council will conduct a “workshop”, on Feb. 25, regarding its volunteer boards and commissions. It’s a good opportunity for the council and its administration to straighten out the curves and pave over the potholes in the relationship. And the timing, at least at this point, couldn’t be better. Why? Because we believe it’s incumbent on the council to re-evaluate its latest appointment to the planning commission. Getting some guidance from its legal advisor, the prosecuting attorney, would be a wise move. By appointing the vice president of the Common Sense Alliance to the commission, the council not only has politicized the workings of that state-mandated advisory body, but ramped up the likelihood that any recommendation from that panel, such as a revision of the critical areas ordinance, now the subject of five different legal actions, including one filed on behalf of the CSA, could be contested in court. Questions about whether the council followed its own procedures regarding this appointment need to be answered, as does the obvious question about a possible conflict of interest. Furthermore, this latest PC appointment is not the only example wherein the council and an advisory body appear to not be on the same page. The marine resources and solid waste advisory committees both jump to mind.

Continued from page 6 paying for all of this?’. Well I guess I am, an insured self-employed guy who’s high deductible won’t cover a dime towards my son’s stitches. My wife called PeaceHealth to talk about the high bill. When she explained we could not afford the bill the PeaceHealth representative suggested we sell “...vehicles, livestock, or other assets...” So while many are thinking this new hospital is great for our island, please remember that PeaceHealth is merely another example of a broken health care system. And if you are sick and tired of the sluggish economy and a tight pocket book, before you start your chainsaw remember that PIMC charges over $100 per suture. Jay Ibold San Juan Island
Claims don’t add; author off target
I am writing to correct a glaring factual error in Ms. Alderton’s letter of Feb. 13. (“Complex, costly; CAO led astray”, pg. 7) I was puzzled by the claim that the “fulfillment of Public Records requests for the CAO Update process has cost taxpayers close to $100,000.” Given the fact that the county has an obligation to maintain the CAO files in an organized fashion pursuant to the GMA, this number seemed highly unlikely. I contacted Ms. Alderton to ask for the source of her estimate, but she has not replied. I also contacted Stan Matthews, who has been in charge of public records requests at the county, and asked whether the county kept such figures, either on the CAO or generally. He said no. I recognize that, as a Friends of the San Juans Board member, Ms. Alderton seems to have access to information not otherwise available to mere citizens. In this case, however, she seems to have been misinformed. As for the notion that the CAO process was not micromanaged by Ecology, I suggest that Ms. Alderton take the opportunity to review the public records that show the constant communication between the county, CDPD and Ecology from the very beginning of the CAO process, with
CDPD and its consultants repeatedly asking Ecology what to do. Finally, I am not sure why Ms. Alderton thinks that our unique county could simply have taken another county’s CAO and used it. Whatcom County? King County? It simply makes no sense. No other county has the pristine resources and voluntary and taxpayer supported protections of so much land that we do. What would have made sense is reviewing the existing CAO, determining where it was inadequate, if at all, and making the minor changes required. That certainly would not have required several county planner FTEs and hundreds of thousands of dollars for consultants. Peg Manning Orcas Island
In praise of an ‘unsung’ hero
I just want to take a moment to thank Helen Venada, as she retires, for her contributions to the islands and to our county government. She is one of the unsung folks who work long and hard in county government and never really get the recognition and thank you for a job well done. Helen has been tireless in her commitment to good environmental practices and to the 3 “R’s” in waste management of reduction, reuse and recycling. As part of her responsibilities, she is the one who made hazardous waste collection work, and who was the conscience for all of us to be careful with our waste and take care of our environment. For those of us who are sometimes outspoken about some aspect or other of how our county government is conducting it’s business, it is important to remember and recognize that there are many folks in the county departments who show up every day, do a great job and, unfortunately, are often taken for granted. Helen, thank you for all you have done for our community. You truly have made a difference. John Evans Orcas Island

Plenty of people to ‘Rave’ about
In the Seattle paper, they have a RANT and RAVE section. I’m all about supporting a RAVE, starting with Island Rec... for putting on such a fabulous Father Daughter Dance and all the adorable “couples” sharing such fun. There was so much love, I was delighted to volunteer in the kitchen and peek out at intervals. Volunteering is key to getting to see and appreciate what capable organizations we have here on San Juan Island. Second RAVE is for Dave
at the Spring Street Deli, across from King’s Market, who went out of his way, “Big-Time”, to find me ginger tea when I was having a “flu” relapse. He walked me to three different stores, got me hot water, and special honey from his stash... all for good will and a good heart. My next sandwich will definitely be trying one from Dave and Laura’s Place. Francie Hansen San Juan Island
Ayers: congrats; grateful for support
First I want to congratulate Rick Hughes, Bob Jarman, Lovel Pratt and Lisa Byers for their strong showing, clearing the primary and going on to the general election. Second is that I want to thank my team, and the voters that put their trust in me with their vote. And to my contributors, I thank you for the assistance and confidence. I cannot thank you all enough. Many have already asked what I will do next. First I will focus all my time and energy to getting Rick and Bob elected after their primary wins. I have not had the chance to speak with Bob personally to determine how I can help, but I hope to connect with him when he is up and about. Rick and I have spoken about me playing a role in his campaign, helping out as I can with strategy and marketing. As far as other activities, I am considering how to help out with county activities related to the themes of my campaign.

Never too young to begin; 2nd annual ‘Very Young People’s Concert’ page 10
By Scott Rasmussen Journal editor
uestion: What do St. Petersburg, Galveston and Baltimore all have in common? Answer: Friday Harbor High School. Why? Because all three cities hosted the finals of National Ocean Sciences Bowl competition the past three years, respectively, and that’s where the champions of Washington state’s regional marine science competition, the Wolverines, ended up each of the last three years. If there’s pressure on the reigning champs to repeat, veteran Orca bowler Michael Barsamian isn’t feeling it quite yet. But he knows it will come. “Right now it’s fine,” he said. “You feel it more when it starts. I remember last year when the questions first started coming I felt, well, I guess you can say paralyzed.” This year, Friday Harbor High will send not just one, but two teams, to the annual state marine science competition, better known as the Orca Bowl, and they’re heading there with sights set squarely on Wisconsin. More specifically, on Milwaukee, host city of the 2013 Orca Bowl national contest. Not everyone on the A team’s 4-person roster feels as relaxed as Barsamian at this stage of the game. Veteran Libby Snow, a junior, feels the weight of being defending champ and pressure to repeat. “Yes, absolutely,” she said. The state competition features 20 teams representing 13 high schools from across the state, and it gets under way this Saturday, Feb. 23, at the Fisheries Sciences Building on the University of Washington campus, in Seattle, beginning at 8 a.m. About nine hours later, the state’s 2013 champion will be crowned. The Orca Bowl squad will be competing without the two advisors that helped them reach the finals the last three years, Nick Frazee and Marc Vermeire. The two former high school science teachers have moved on. But they still have “coach” Derrick Smith of UW Friday Harbor Labs to help guide them, and biology teacher Jesse Visciglia stepped into the role of faculty advisor this year. “He’s chill,” Barsamian said of Smith.

This ordinance extends the effective date of the critical areas regulations adopted in 2012, which will provide more time to prepare for implementation of the new regulations. ORDINANCE No. 2 -2013: NOTICE OF PUBLIC HEARING TO CONSID-
ER AN ORDINANCE REVISING COUNTY PARKS FEE SCHEDULES; REPEALING PORTIONS OF ORDINANCE 28-2011 The current San Juan County Parks Department fee schedule was established by Ordinance 28-2011, along with fees for Community Development and Planning. SJC Parks charges fees for services such as camping, parking, commercial use, and special events. These fees may require modifications from time to time, depending on budget and market conditions. The proposed ordinance will repeal the existing Parks fee schedule as amended by Ordinance No. 28-2011 and establish a new Parks fee schedule. The proposed ordinance modifies fees for 2013 and beyond. The Parks Department and the Interim County Manager wish to have the Parks fees approved independent of those of Community Development and Planning; this ordinance will separate the fee schedules into two
ordinances. The ordinance is filed at the office of the County Council, 55 Second Street, Friday Harbor, WA. The ordinance may be inspected and copies obtained 24 hours a day at the County website at www.sanjuanco.com/council/ordinances.aspx or at the Council offices during each business day between the hours of 8:30 a.m. and 4:30 p.m. For more information please contact the Clerk of the County Council at (360) 370-7470.
