Three ‘D’s in view By Steve Wehrly

Journal reporter

The bulletproof vest worn by San Juan County Sheriff Rob Nou on Thursday evening wasn’t needed to ward off several pointed questions about zealous traffic enforcement. Nou kept the focus on his department’s response to the “three D’s”: domestic violence, DUIs and drugs instead. For nearly two hours in a full meeting room at Skagit Valley College in Friday Harbor, Nou outlined problems created by domestic violence, drinking and driving, and illegal drugs before an attentive and inquisitive audience of 75 people at a meeting hosted by the “new Friday Harbor Grange.” Nou’s first remark caught the group’s attention. “Every nonvehicle homicide in recent times in San Juan County has involved domestic violence,” said Nou. Saying “we take it very seri-

ously,” Nou pointed to 74 domestic disturbance calls on San Juan Island in 2012, 15 of which resulted in an arrest. They are mostly verbal Sheriff Rob Nou arguments that get out of control, Nou said. Some involve alcohol, and the dynamics of many domestic disturbances can easily escalate into confrontations with Sheriff ’s deputies, he said. One common problem Nou mentioned is that the family unit, sometimes including the children, closes ranks and refuses intervention by law enforcement. Noting that training for deputies stresses “ratcheting down the emotions quickly,” Nou said a very disappointing aspect of domestic vioSee View, Page 3

Council candidate Q & A With less than six weeks until San Juan County elects a new three-member county council, all six remaining candidates are hitting the campaign trail. The revamped council, and the April 23 elections, are the result of revisions to the county charter proposed in 2012 by the Charter Revision Commission and approved by the voters in November, 2012. The revisions returned the council to three members elected countywide from “residency districts” comprising San Juan, Orcas and Lopez and their respective nearby smaller islands. Nominated in a February, 2012, primary were Lovel Pratt and Bob Jarman from San Juan for District 1, Lisa Byers and Rich Hughes from Orcas Island for District 2, and Jamie Stephens and Brian McClerren from Lopez Island for District 3. Hughes, Stephens and Jarman are current incumbents on the present six-member council; Pratt is a former councilwoman who was defeated by Jarman in a 2012 council race; Byers is the director of OPAL Community Land Trust on Orcas; and McClerren is a Lopez resident making his first run for elective office. Leading up to the election, the Journal will be running a series of Q&A’s with candidates from each district.

Brian McClerren

WEEKLY: What do you bring to the table that is different from the other candidates and why did you decide to run? BM: I’m in a different world than the other candidates and that gives me a unique perspective on government. I’m trying to become a homeowner. I’m starting my business while hanging onto a full-time job. I’m raising kids and about to have a new baby. My political ideas aren’t being fed to me by an organized party machine. They come from my own

It has taken a hefty dose of courage and determination to put myself into this race. It is a reflection of my deep love for the San Juan Islands that I am deliberately seeking the most demanding, stressful and criticized job available. I am convinced, as are my supporters, that I can be that change that I seek.

WEEKLY: How do you plan to balance the county budget? Do you support renewal of Prop. 1, the voter-approved property tax increase that expires at the end of 2015?

BM: I am bothered that the assumption appears to be larger government and increased taxes. A special part of our identity in this place is that we value our independence. I can tell you unequivocally that nothing sacrifices independence like being in debt . This relates to bond debt as well as grant-funded activities. Last year our council signed a debt obligation which demands repayment through taxation “with-

New twist on ‘Dining for Scholars’ Annual event for scholarship fund to take place on just one day By Scott Rasmussen Journal editor

With temperatures on the rise, an extra hour of daylight and a splash more sunshine here and there, the urge to vacate the kitchen and dine out at a local restaurant grows stronger by the day. Right? Well, if one still needs a bit more motivation, then consider this. And get ready to mark March 28 on your calendar. The folks at San Juan Island’s Dollars for Scholars are putting nearly all their eggs in one basket this year, so to speak, by making the group’s yearly “Dining for Scholars” fundraiser a one-day event. That’s right, just one day, Thursday, March 28. Options for breakfast, lunch or dinner are available at the 19 different restaurants signed on to participate in the annual fundraiser, all of which will donate a portion of proceeds from that day to the Dollars for Scholars scholarship fund. In recent years, Dining for Scholars has taken place on successive Thursdays, in February. But Dollars for Scholars President June Arnold

said after consulting with participating restaurants that everyone involved agreed that the promise of generating more “bang-for-the-buck” would be better by holding the fundraiser on a single day. The bucks, after all, are what Dollars for Scholars is all about, in a way. The organization has awarded $150,000 in scholarships since its inception in 1999. A year ago, the group handed out $1,000 in scholarships to seven different San Juan Island graduates who completed the Dollars for Scholars program. And the program, in the event one is in need of a refresher, is a quintessential win-win for the students and the community. By completing 80 hours of community service from a list of pre-approved organizations, such as the library, food bank or Wolf Hollow, each student can qualify for up to $1,000 in scholarship monies. Students can begin collecting hours as early as eighth grade. What’s more, most universities and colleges will “match” Dollars for Scholars scholarship awards, Arnold said. But that’s not all. Arnold notes that the time students devote to community service adds weight to any college application and resume in the competitive admission process. “There’s an opportunity for kids to leverage this scholarship and when they get into it they start to realize

Moving to drunk driving, Nou said the Sheriff ’s office simply wants to get impaired drivers off the road before an innocent person, or the driver, gets hurt or killed. Nationally, he said, “one-third to one-half of traffic fatalities involve an impaired driver.” The “random, unplanned, unexpected” accident involving impaired driving is far worse than any resulting DUI arrest, opined Nou.

there’s other scholarships around,” she said. “Community service helps them stand apart from the crowd and look like a more well-rounded person.” A total of 75 students are currently enrolled in the Dollars for Scholars community service program. In addition to managing its own scholarship fund, the local Dollars for Scholars chapter, an affiliate of Scholarship America, a nationwide program, can help other groups or individuals establish and manage a scholarship program of their own. But for now, all sights are set on March 28. So, ready your appetite.

son deputies stop cars for “minor” infractions such as driving without lights in town at night or improper turn signals, said Nou, is to stop accidents before they happen. Routine traffic stops for minor infractions and citizen displeasure over deputy decorum during those stops was the trigger for comments by Shawn Kleine, Pat Sandwith and School Board member Jennifer Furber. Nou, however, deflected the

criticisms by inviting anyone with complaints to bring them to his office for private discussion. Personnel complaints are handled on a case-by-case basis, not in public forums, he said. Asked about ticketing “quotas” for deputies, Nou strongly rejected the assertion: “There are no ticket quotas in the Sheriff ’s Department.” To read more on this story, visit www.sanjuanjournal.com

BM: It makes me more of an optimist. I’m full of energy and enthusiasm in tackling the issues of the day but with a young family, I’m frequently thinking about life 20 or 30 years from now. I think that’s an inherent strength. I am excited to meet the people who shape our world and they seem pleasantly surprised at a new face in politics. Some of the formalities of being a councilman are going to be strange. I don’t even own a tie or a blazer. I can already see the need for a second phone line at home and a full office setup on Lopez. I think the public is going to be pretty understanding about those kinds of growing pains though.

WEEKLY: You are the youngest candidate in the group, what are the strengths and weaknesses of your age?

BM: I don’t see enough questions being asked. When spending requests and budgets come before the council we should be having some intense conversations. Each one of these financial presentations begins with a statement like, “This is all very routine,” which usually means please don’t question my department. The public is craving a council who will be critical about spending. One councilman recognized that signing up for the county’s insurance benefits was an unnecessary waste of tax dollars and he declined. Another councilman returned money from travel expenses which he did not use. This is the kind of behavior which I admire. I hear all the time from residents, “Find out why we are spending so much”. We need to be more fiscally conservative now than we have been for a long time. I promise to ask those hard questions.

Continued from page 4 questions, do the research and seek alternatives that fit our unique island community.

WEEKLY: How do you plan to balance the county budget? Do you support renewal of Prop. 1, the voter-approved property tax increase that expires at the end of 2015? JS: My goal is a five-year horizon of budget stability. The budget has been balanced for the last few years through reductions of employees, freezing wages, changing health insurance, deferring maintenance, and delaying capital improvements. The changes took the cooperation of county Departments and employees. These were only yearto-year fixes and are not sustainable. The passage of the public safety sales tax will help keep the budget balanced for two to three years if we are disciplined with our expenditures. As the economy improves we should not spend money the same way. The council is engaging the public to determine what the scope and scale of county government should look like. The results of this will guide what combination of revenue versus expenses is the right course going forward.

The revenue from the levy lid lift is part of our current budget and it helps fund specific programs. The uses, amount, and form of any renewal will need to be determined by the results of the community conversations.

WEEKLY: What is the single most critical issue facing county residents?

JS: Achieving budget stability is the single most important issue facing county residents and property owners. The council will get direction from the community about the priorities of government but hard decisions will need to be made about restructuring government and how to pay for the services the citizens want. These will include infrastructure such as bridges and roads; water availability and delivery; sewer; storm water treatment; and communications.

WEEKLY: Will your experience on the council help you serve again as a councilman, why or why not?

JS: I have worked for companies and have been on the boards of nonprofits that have gone through major changes. Each time it has been helpful to have a person or persons that have experience with the organization to lead through it. I believe that I am one of those leaders. I will reach out to other council members, department heads and into the community for

An aerial survey? Wasteful expense

It is with horror that I learn that the county is preparing to spend upwards of $125,000 on aerial surveys. I cannot imagine a more irresponsible way to spend taxpayer money.

can tell that the last Google overflight was sometime in August 2011 and the level of detail is astounding. I cannot imagine a legitimate need for higher resolution or more up-to-date photos. From the freely available image, I can clearly see that my daughters had erected their pup-tent in the yard that day, I can see ducks on my pond, the status of my firewood pile, how many steps up it is to my porch, where all my wheelbarrows happen to be parked, and even what my dog happens to be doing. This is a government boondoggle and the members of the County Council who voted to support this irresponsible expenditure should be chastised.

Forum focused on overreach by feds

The local Friends of the Constitution Coalition are pleased to sponsor a free, educational forum of importance to all in San Juan County, by Ms. Nadia, Kayyali, Legal Fellow, of the national Bill of Rights Defense Committee, titled, “Are you Aware of the Secure Communities Program?” The talk, followed by a town hall discussion, will be presented at the Skagit Valley College on March 21, from 7-9 p.m. Secure Communities is a federal immigration enforcement program created as a voluntary program in 2008 by Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) within the Department of

Homeland Security and Cabinet Secretary Janet Napolitano. Washington State activated the program April 2012. Some Washington Counties, including San Juan, were already participating. The stated goal is to make the program mandatory by 2013. The program is an information-sharing partnership between ICE and the Federal Bureau of Investigation designed to identify “criminal aliens”. The program purposes, as stated in a 2009 report to Congress, are to: “1. Identify criminal aliens through modernized information sharing; 2. Prioritize enforcement actions to ensure apprehension and removal of dangerous criminal aliens; and 3. Transform criminal alien enforcement processes and systems to achieve lasting results.” Under the Secure Communities program, the fingerprints of those arrested are sent to the ICE and to the FBI. The net effect, according to former ICE Secretary Julie L. Myers, is to “create a virtual ICE presence at every local jail.” Our understanding is that the fingerprints of any person arrested, for any reason, are electronically forwarded to the ICE before, not after, their conviction. In addition, the national data are that the Secure Communities program is being abused in some jurisdictions by racial profiling, and that persons who have not committed a crime, including legal immigrants, are being deported. Further, law enforcement officials, mayors, and governors across the country have stated that the Secure Communities

Ode to duo with keen mind, heart

Once upon a time in these islands quite fair, an election was held and Council was pared. Some citizens were happy, others were not, but such was the outcome that election had wrought. Now come two candidates, proven records have both, business sense they possess, service their oath. Many citizens know of their actions, others know not, so be careful of the outcome this election may wrought. Is it big outside money a councilman makes? Or years of service and dedication—is that what it takes? Some citizens want local rule, others may not, so be wary of the outcome this election may wrought. See LETTERS, Page 7

As I See It

Weigh in on No place for petty, partisan politics Westcott Bay W By Christopher Hodgkin, San Juan Island

T

he addition to English Camp of 34 acres of prime Westcott Bay waterfront property is a coup for the National Park Service and a blessing for residents and visitors alike. Land anywhere in San Juan County is a precious resource, and land owned by the public, especially parks, places a special responsibility for stewardship on us all. The Westcott Bay property is especially precious: this parcel next to English Camp is one-ofa-kind. It can be a joy for locals and tourists alike for at least the rest of this century and hopefully beyond. That’s why you should take the time Wednesday, that’s tonight, to come to the Mullis Center between 5 p.m. and 7 p.m. to learn about the new acquisition and to let the Parks Service know what you think of the challenges and opportunities ahead. Superintendent Lee Taylor wants your help. “We welcome individuals and organizations to come and provide feedback on the future management of the property and actions that you would like to see considered as we move through the planning process,” Taylor said in setting the stage for tonight’s meeting. There’s a 30-day comment period, closing April 18, to put your ideas in writing, but you can come to the meeting and tell NPS in person what you think should be considered in the Westcott Bay Developmental Concept Plan. Don’t miss the chance to make your voice heard early in the process.

For the Record n Sophomore Dalton Ayers was a member of the FHHS 9th/10th grade Knowledge Bowl team this year and in 2012. His longevity on the team was incorrectly identified in an article, “Bold bet clinches K-Bowl crown”, pg. 1, March 13.

hen “We the People” of San Juan County adopted a Home Rule charter, we made a clear statement that we wanted our elected officials to be nonpartisan. Period. No ifs, no ands, no buts. Given the extreme hostility and gridlock which partisan politics has imposed on both the state and the national legislatures, our decision seems particularly wise and even prescient. We the people did a good thing there. But not every candidate for commissioner this year agrees with the decision of the people. Several have not only accepted, but promote, partisan endorsement by a political party. Some of their supporters argue that this is meaningless and unimportant. I’m not so sure. First, it expresses not only a disdain but an actual contempt for the clearly stated will of the voters. One has to wonder, if they are so dismissive of the clearly expressed will of the people in this matter, in what other matters will they also place the interests of party above those of the people? Second, once a candidate has openly and publicly allied themselves with only one political party platform, how can they legitimately claim, and expect the public to believe, that they are truly interested in representing all the voters equally and fairly? Third, do we really want even to start back down the partisan path which has proved so divisive in both Olympia and Washington, D.C.? Why would we choose candidates who prefer this pattern of “governing” and don’t even want

way to fly there to represent our county. A full list of Jamie’s community involvement is available at electjamiestephens.com. As we slowly come out of this recession San Juan County needs competent, effective government. With Jamie as part of a new three-person county council we will have that. He has the experience, leadership and knowledge to help move us forward. I urge all county residents to vote for Jamie Stephens. Bob Gamble Orcas Island

A proven leader; Versatile, bright; Stephens in Dist. 3 Byers in Dist. 2 In about three weeks our ballots will arrive in the mail. We will have a countywide election where we will elect three County Council members, each of whom will represent the entire county (going back to the system we had five years ago). Everybody in the county will be voting for three candidates, one from each of the three residency districts. In residency District 3, I’m urging everyone to vote for Jamie Stephens. Jamie has lived on Lopez for 17 years and during that time he has shown a consistent commitment to community. He has served on multiple boards and committees and currently is chairman of the county council. When San Juan County needed a presence in Washington, D.C., Jamie paid his own

I’ve had the opportunity to spend time with Lisa Byers as she campaigns for a seat on the county council, and I’ve been impressed with the way she relates to the people she encounters. She’s very knowledgable about the county and its needs, but she’s always eager to learn more from the person she’s talking with. She’s an enthusiastic listener, one who asks intelligent questions, who is always open to the knowledge and experience of others. If I were on the council, I’d want someone like Lisa to work with. And as a voting citizen, I see her as someone I hope will be helping to make the important decisions about the future of our county. Louise Dustrude Friday Harbor

to try to represent the people in the nonpartisan fashion which our Charter requires of them? We have a choice in this election. We can reject the politics of Olympia and Congress and insist that our government remain truly nonpartisan, rejecting candidates who openly advocate a return to partisan politics locally. Or we can go ahead and say that yes, we want to bring here to San Juan County the partisanship which we see playing out on the state and national levels and go ahead and elect candidates who openly commit themselves not to the interests of the people as a whole but rather to those of one partisan political interest. Think carefully. This year you may not think it is that important. But once partisan politics returns to this county in full force, you may find you have opened a Pandora’s Box that we had tried to close, and once opened it is likely to be impossible to re-close.

21st century CEO; Hughes in Dist. 2

Rick has run, has won, is our current sitting councilman, and is now running again for the seat of councilman for San Juan County District 2. As a local property and business owner, Rick has shown leadership on the Eastsound Planning and Review Committee. Rick has for several years run a successful and essential small business in our community. I have watched over the years as Rick, with the support of “super wife, friend and partner” Marlace, work long hours for the advancement of local business, community and countywide interests, as well as the interest of each individual in the San Juans. Rick is not just a local businessman, he is a concerned community leader involved on many levels with many organizations throughout our county. Rick has been involved on the local level in community planning, environmental issues, health, education, small business needs, our economy, community recreation, our youth and local employment issues. Rick’s management skills are exactly what we need to help us grow and yet more efficiently run our county and county government. As a leader in community, business and social services, Rick is on the cutting edge.

San Juan County needs leadership that is thoughtful, creative and drawing from a broad base of well-balanced knowledge and experience. Rick Hughes through his education, business experience, lifestyle, listening skills, personal and civic associations, love for family and community, respect for the views of all San Juan County islanders, decades of background in the local community, his well-developed and very personable leadership skills, are the reasons he is the recently elected and sitting councilman from Orcas island. I ask those of you on Shaw, Lopez, San Juan and the outer islands to join the almost 70 percent of the voters here on Orcas, who know Rick best and elected him to the San Juan County Council last November, in reelecting Rick Hughes to the District 2 San Juan County Council seat. Join Rick in preserving the San Juan Islands beauty and way of life while moving us forward in the 21st century. Don Pencil Orcas Island

O. Box 1983 Friday Harbor, WA 98250

John Trienens passed away in Seattle on Friday, March 8, 2013 at age 64. John was born on April 13, 1948 to Howard and Paula Trienens in Evanston, Ill. and raised in Glencoe, Ill., along with siblings Kip and Nancy. He attended New Trier High School followed by Colorado College. After college he headed west, and his love of fishing led him to Stuart Island. He fell in love with the island, and when he met Chris he convinced her to move there with him in 1975. They hand-built a house on the west side of Stuart and raised three children there, Sebastian, Nathanial and Nicholas. John’s work was commercial salmon fishing and construction. He rebuilt an old wooden gillnetter, the Elva S, for fishing in the San Juans and around Seattle, and ran the Stuart Island Reefnets. He also took regular commercial fishing trips to Alaska. John moved the family to Friday Harbor in 1987 and

t’s not “win some, lose some” this year for the Friday Harbor boys soccer team. They’ve got confidence, skills and conditioning, and their coaches think they’ve got the horses to play with anybody. That optimism was on target with a season-opening 1-0 win at home over Coupeville, the team’s first in six years or so, and a strong performance against 2012 1A champion Overlake, with the score tied at halftime. One year ago, Coach Andy Duke labeled 2012 a “growth

year” for the Wolverines. This year, Duke thinks that last year’s growth may bear fruit: he thinks the state playoff goal is within reach, and the talent of the team may take them deep into the post-season. “Defense is a real strength,” says Duke, who points to the 2012 experience in the defensive scheme by a back four of Julian Perren, Don Galt, Ian Williams and Judd Lewis, supplemented by “super-sub” Sam Gabler-Brown. “Some of these kids have been playing together for five years,” said Duke, who singles out team captain Brett Paul as one of the best players in the division, if not the state. Paul and another five-year player, Sam Waite, are expected to key the offense. Another veteran, Michael Barsamian, is in the goal. The coaches are counting on the tall, fast Barsamian to use his experience and natural aggressiveness to shut down opposing breakaways. Because soccer is a constantly moving game without set “plays”, like football, Duke says the team’s intelligence should factor heavily in each game. He points out with pride that last year’s team was tops in the state 1A Division last year - in GPA. Assistant coaches Kevin Porter and Jose Churape are just as optimistic. “If they love the game, understand the idea of a team game, want to be in shape, they’ll do well,” says Churape, who will also coach the JV team, made up of the younger players of the full 28-man squad.

As in past years, the league leaders that the Wolverines must challenge are Lynden Christian and Meridian. Dramatically enough, the final match of the season is with Lynden Christian, the outcome of which could weigh heavily in seeding for post-season play. “The team’s coming together quickly,” said Duke, who, along with Porter and Churape, is enjoying the early going - perhaps more than the players, who a few days ago had to see how far they could run in one-half hour. Seven of them ran four miles or more in that time, and several others were between three and four miles. This team wants to excel. — Steve Wehrly

The Lucky Dozen

D

ick Barnes enjoys being able to catch his breath. For the first time in recent memory the Friday Harbor High School dean of coaches, Barnes, now in his 25th season at the helm of the tennis program, has avoided having to split up a squad of 20-plus into two camps and then manage double sets of practices each week to ensure that everyone has an opportunity to improve her game. A total of 24 girls turned out to play a year ago. The year before that, it was 33. The 2013 season began with a “baker’s dozen” on the roster and 12 returning players that together provide the Wolverines with a solid core of veteran athletes. Having more time to spend on

court with each individual on the team is something that Barnes relishes. And the timing couldn’t be more opportune. “We don’t have a lot of match experience out there right now,” Barnes said. Call it “rebuilding”, if you will, but the Wolverines start the season as something close to a blank slate. Each of the team’s five matchdetermining spots are up for grabs: No.1 and No. 2 singles, and the No.’s 1-3 doubles teams. And with the loss of Rebecca Leff to graduation, it’s the first time in three years that Friday Harbor won’t have a battletested, post-season qualifier to serve as a mentor and lead the way. Basically, Barnes said it remains to be seen as to

who will step up and inherit what role. At the outset of the season, the Wolverines roster consisted of just one senior, Katrina Wakeman, and five juniors, Roxanne Bormann, Maddy

ow do you top a season like 2012? For the Friday Harbor fast-pitch softball team, it could only be with a trip to State. A year ago, they conquered just about everything else in sight. Led by Northwest 1A/2B League MVP Jean Melborne, now in her final year on the mound, the two-time defending league champion Wolverines will be in pursuit of a third consecutive league title and a second berth in three years at the Division 1A state tournament when they hit the field in the 2013 season. Don’t bet against it. Here’s why. Melborne, who compiled a record of 11-1 against league competition a year ago, will be a year older, a year stronger and surrounded by a cast of mostly veteran players in the field, including several league award winners in their own right, like fellow senior Kaylen Meeker, anchoring the defense behind the plate, and speedy Emily Guard in the outfield. In the batters box, Friday Harbor should bring even more firepower to the plate than it did a year ago

The first course of action for the newcomers is attending to the basics. “When they finally chalk up that first par, I teach them some of the finer points, like

Apr. 20 Blaine Noon “We haven’t lost anything in the way Apr. 23 La Conner 2 p.m. of team speed,” said Head Coach Nickie Apr. 23 La Conner 3:30 p.m. Apr. 27 Lynden Christian (TBD) Davis, who, in her debut season, earned Apr. 30 Darrington 3:30 p.m. post-season honors as well by being May 3 Orcas Island 3 p.m. named league Coach of the Year. May 4 Mount Baker (TBD) But winning a third straight league May 7 Concrete 4 p.m. title is anything but a done deal. The Wolverines can expect fierce competition from perennial league title contenders La Conner, Orcas and Concrete, whom they play twice over the course of a 20-game regularseason schedule, once at home and once on the road. As in the past, Friday Harbor’s post-season prospects will depend more on how well it performs against its Division 1A regional rivals, like Nooksack Valley and Meridian, than it does in league competition. And with Blaine and Mount Baker playing at the 1A level this year, the Wolverines will have two new 1A opponents to contend with during the regular season, and possibly the post season as well. Friday Harbor will have added depth on the mound this year. The Wolverines quest for a berth at State faltered at the 1A Tri-District tournament a year ago in large part because Melborne suffered a season-ending arm injury and was unavailable to pitch. Then-freshman Caitlyn Domenech did her part in keeping the Wolverines competitive as a backup, gaining invaluable experience as a post-season starter. Still, Domenech’s services may not be needed on the mound. Davis said that Melborne worked diligently to get her pitching arm back in shape in the off-season, has been throwing “a bunch” and is eager and ready for the 2013 campaign. It appears the rest of the Wolverines are as well.

how to high five and fist pump.,” Rice said. Kidding aside, Rice believes the future looks bright with the addition of eight new faces, including four freshmen guys who are hungry to improve. “I can’t feed them enough,” he said. “They are always asking how do you do this or that.” The future is a work in progress, but expect Meeker and senior Riley Rousar, a four-year veteran, to be at the head of the pack by the time post-season play rolls around. Playoff prospects also bode well for junior Devan Rousar, who went from novice to tri-district tournament qualifier in just two seasons. “When you think about what she has accomplished in golf in only two seasons, it’s exciting,” Rice said. Coach Rice also has high expectations for second-year player Xander Crichton and for newcomers Austin Cotton, a senior, and sophomore Eli Baker, both of whom should benefit from some fine-tuning but join the team already knowing how to swing a club.

New obstacles to overcome

F

riday Harbor started the season in familiar fashion. A two-run victory and one member of the team belting a pair of home runs in the season opening win, senior Gavin Guard on this occasion. Shortstop Amer Melic, a junior who will be back to anchor the defense, jacked two homers of his own in the Wolverines season opener a year ago. But with two new Division 1A teams in the mix and a total of six new opponents lying in wait, including Division 2A Squalicum and Bellingham, the 2013 season promises to be anything but familiar for the Friday Harbor baseball team, aside from the start. Adding to the worries of Head Coach Rich Warin, now in his 19th year at the helm, an alteration in the regular-season schedule means the Wolverines are slated to play 20 games in 45 days, a couple of doubleheaders included, before they host Northwest 1A/2B League rival La Conner in the regular season finale, an April 23 doubleheader. Since the regular-season is so compressed, Warin has issued a proclamation to his players: “Don’t get injured. It’s more important than ever this year.” Home games in bold Still, don’t expect Warin or the Date Opponent Time Wolverines, who compiled a 14-7 Date Opponent Time record overall a year ago, to back Mar. 23 Chelan (TBD) down from the challenge. With nine Mar. 23 Brewster 1 p.m. consecutive league titles and a long Mar. 25 Blaine 3:30 p.m. tradition of state tournament berths Mar. 29 Concrete 4 p.m. in tow, Friday Harbor is accustomed Mar. 30 Nooksack Valley Noon to overcoming obstacles. Mar. 30 Nooksack Valley 2 p.m. “We got a lot tougher schedule this Apr. 2 Squalicum 4:30 p.m. year,” Warin said. “But that’s what we Apr. 4 Lynden Christian (TBD) Apr. 6 Cedar Park Chr.(Bothell) Noon want.” Apr. 9 Darrington 11:30 AM The Wolverines lineup will be batApr. 12 Meridian 4:45 p.m. tle-tested, with eight players returning Apr. 13 Cedar Park Chr.

others, sophomore Gabe Lawson and Guard, the team’s starting catcher, in particular, will see some time on the mound as well. “It’s a great core group,” Warin said. “As good a group of guys as you’d want.” What the Wolverines are not blessed with is depth. Outside the core, the 15-man roster includes seven new players, including three first-year upperclassmen. While the infield will be manned by veterans, the outfield will have a few new players taking on key positions. What the Wolverines will have on their side in the campaign to come is also a bit of a chip on their collective shoulder and something to prove. They ended post-season play on the outside looking in at the State tournament following a 1-0 loss in the final day of the Tri-District playoffs. Rest assured that the 2013 team intends to put that disappointment behind them.

Big spirit drives small squad

W

ith three former 2A schools joining the 1A Division, the 2013 track and field competition will be tougher for Friday Harbor. But with two strong performers returning as team captains, Coach Darrin Scheffer is optimistic, as are assistants Herb Mason (distances and Middle School team), Dave Olshefsky (sprints) and Wilson Schubert (mid-distances). “2013 looks good so far,” Scheffer said. Ten athletes are returning, and the coach is pleased with their conditioning, and with the enthusiasm of the new recruits. The two strongest performers, and best candidates to advance in the end-of-season tri-district and state meets, are team captains Alaina Scheffer, a junior, and sophomore Willie Blackmon. Blackmon is a multi-sport and multievent athlete who combines skill and determination that put him in the state championships in the 300-meter hurdles as a freshman, a year ago. He finished 15th in a strong field, holds a school record in the event, and Scheffer said he’s working hard to repeat his multiple-win 2012 track season and return to the state championships. Like all Wolverine athletes, Blackmon will be participating in multiple events, but will concentrate on the hurdles and the sprints, and will likely anchor the 400meter relay. Scheffer is a javelin thrower who consis-

Junior Genevieve Gislason returns from a productive 2012 season in the middle distances, and will be joined by her sister Lita, a senior, who ran track in 2011 but concentrated on tennis in 2012. Senior leadership will be provided by middle-distance runner Jose Guerrero in the 800 and 1600 meters, and longer distance man Sam McMain in the 3200. Both are expected to improve from fine 2012 seasons and compete strongly in the tridistrict meets.

n playwright Paul Lavrakas’ post-apocalyptic sci-fi fantasy, the Earth is a scorched, desolate and forbidding wasteland, and its inhabitants all live underground. Pretty much all everyone does anymore is watch old television reruns and shop at the mall, the “Great Mall of Nemotex”, as it’s known. Sound depressing? Well, it's meant to, but that’s just the setup. And it’s the setting not only for an adventure, but for an environmental message wrapped up in a wildly inventive plot, delivered with a heavy dose of humor, and performed in all its wacky glory and colorful costumes by the Friday Harbor Middle School Players, in three back-to-back-to-back performances beginning Friday. Directed by Jane Maxwell Campbell, Escape from Nemotex features a cast of 27 kids and the music of Jimi Hendrix, songs from his groundbreaking album, “Axis Bold as Love”, for its soundtrack, and a mesmerizing assortment of colorful costumes too mind-boggling to accurately describe. “It really is quite delightful,” said Campbell, who recently directed “Working”, Studs Terkel’s acclaimed first-person stories about people and the work they do, performed by the high school drama class. “There’s flamingos and trench coats and part-bird people. The costumes are wonderful.” While many of the underground inhabitants are content with reruns and shopping, it’s a band of “rebels” that stirs unrest among the ranks and the plot of the play as well, and leads to an adventure in the world above. See you there. The SJCT box office is open Tuesdays-Fridays, 11 a.m. to 4 p.m., and Saturdays, 11 a.m. to 2 p.m. For more info, 378-3210, or www. sjctheatre.org.

Communication, alienation on stage

I

sland Stage Left’s 2013 season debuts March 21 with “A Number” by British playwright Caryl Churchill. A Number, written in 2002, uses human cloning as a device to examine a parent’s communication with and alienation from his children. It has been called a psychological thriller, but is more akin to a science fiction tragedy - something that an avant garde playwright like Samuel Beckett might pen for Rod Serling’s Twilight Zone. The “hero” has had a son cloned - apparently more than once - after his wife committed suicide. Much of the play involves the interaction of the father with, and deaths of, the original son and the first clone. All these characters are apparently deeply unhappy, unable to deal with themselves or with each other, inexorably moving toward unhappy ends. As the first three play out their unhappy parts, counterpoint is provided by a third cloned son who is living an apparently happy, fulfilled life as a parent of three children. Churchill is a prolific English playwright, with almost sixty plays and radio dramas to her name. Her wide variety of plays and her use of language has made her a prominent part of modern English theater. One critic summed up her career: “With each play, she discovers new genres

and forms. She then discards them and moves on, opening up possibilities for other playwrights to explore. I think many people writing today don’t even realize they’ve been influenced by her. She’s changed the language of theatre. And very few playwrights do that.” A Number will be presented free (donations accepted) by Island Stage Left at the San Juan County Fairground from March 21 to April 21. Thursday, Friday and Saturday at 7:30 p.m.; Sunday at 4 p.m. — Steve Wehrly Contributed art
