Case of ‘open’, or not

www.sanjuanjournal.com

Helping hand, new leash on life By Scott Rasmussen Journal Editor

Ruling could send CAO back to square — 2? By Scott Rasmussen Journal editor

San Juan County could find itself having to redo a significant portion of its critical areas ordinance if allegations that the County Council violated the state Open Meetings Act in preparing the recently approved, controversial landuse regulations are determined to be true. Oral arguments began in an Island County courthouse Friday, April 19, with the county’s legal team calling first for the case, a lawsuit brought by San Juans’ Citizens Alliance for Property Rights, to be dismissed. “Our contention, in part, is there was no violation of the open meetings act because three people are not a majority or a quorum of the council,” Prosecuting Attorney Randy Gaylord said. A decision on the county’s motion for dismissal is expected sometime this week. Some facts are without dispute. The county and CAPR agree that as many as three council members joined in when a group known as the CAO/SMP (shoreline master program) implementation committee got together to hash out issues related to the revision of those two land-use regulations over roughly two-years time. That committee, which was assembled by former county See Case, Page 4

Friday Harbor’s Elizabeth Clark, right, and Michael MacLellan share ‘quality’ time with Zeus, a shelter dog the couple is fostering, with the hope that the once-abused pit bull can regain his trust, and be adopted.

Ballots in; What Next? By Steve Wehrly Journal Reporter

With the final ballot count underway, four former county commissioners weighed in with advice for whoever wins. The April 23 election will result in a different governance model for San Juan County, former commissioners Tom Starr, John Evans, Rhea Miller and Tom Cowan said. That model - with the council responsible for supervising county operating departments and the budget - will be substantially similar to the way the three-person coun-

ty commission operated before Home Rule came to the county in 2006. Cowan, from Lopez, was a county commissioner from 1983 to 1994; Miller succeeded C o w a n from 1995 to 2005. Evans served as commissioner from Orcas Island from 1992 to 2008. Starr represented San Juan Island, 1993 to 1996. All four think a three-person council will be more effective and efficient than the current six-per-

If you’ve only watched just one episode of the “Dog Whisperer”, starring Cesar Millan, you became aware rather quickly that the fundamentals of any good pack leader include the ability remain calm and assertive if the face of aggression. And, to stand your ground. Still, if you walk into a stranger’s home and come face-to-face with a good-sized Staffordshire Bull Terrier, more commonly known as a pit bull, one that’s obviously disturbed by the intrusion and letting you know about it, the urge to flee is hard to resist. That’s why Michael MacLellan advises to simply ignore the barking and to not look Zeus straight in the eye. It seems to work. “I’ve always had pit bulls,” MacLellan said. “I’ve had them since I was a kid. I could’ve gone with any kind of dog, though, I guess I’m a ‘dog person’ in general. I just seem to have a way with animals.” Which is a blessing for Zeus, a 5-year-old pit bull who landed in the Friday Harbor Animal Shelter about a year ago, languishing for attention but rarely receiving the amount that a highly sociable, relatively young and intelligent See Leash, Page 4

San Juan County Sheriff ’s Department reported responding to these calls: March 10: A San Juan Island man was arrested for DUI after crashing into a mailbox on Bailer Hill Road. The 40-year-old, taken into custody at about 7 p.m., came to a halt an abrupt halt following a failed attempt to steer his SUV back onto the roadway — a 60-yard struggle — after drifting into a ditch. March 26: A Friday Harbor man is the prime suspect in an apparent case of vandalism of a pair of pop machines. Footage from a surveillance camera at a Carter Avenue gas station reportedly shows the 36-year-old damaging a pop machine there; another outside an equipment rental shop about a block away sustained $500 damage on the same night. March 31: A wiener dog could end up designated as a “dangerous dog” after it darted out of its Friday Harbor home and bit a 7-year-old girl on the back and arm as she fled from the front doorstep of a neighbor’s apartment.

The incident and whether the dog should be listed as dangerous are under review. n A San Juan Island man faces charges of theft following an alleged case of shoplifting at a Friday Harbor grocery store. The 65-year-old, taken into custody at about 7 p.m., strolled out the store’s back door with a bag of merchandise, some of which he allegedly had not paid for. n A Friday Harbor man was arrested for DUI following a series of late-night traffic infractions. The 49-year-old, taken into custody at about 11:30 p.m., reportedly crossed a center line moments before making a left turn, and then failed to come to a complete stop at a stop sign shortly thereafter, for which he was also ticketed. April 5: An Orcas Island man faces charges of tres-

passing after a woman decided she’d had enough of his pounding on her front door. The 34-year-old was found on foot not far from the woman’s Deer Harbor home and taken into custody shortly after 10 a.m. He reportedly yelled and banged on the door on two separate occasions that morning, had done so several weeks earlier, ignoring the woman’s demands to leave her alone. April 6: A late-night noise complaint and failure to appear in court on a 2-year-old charge of driving with a suspended license prompted the arrest of an Orcas Island man. The 34-year-old was taken into custody at his Mountain View Lane home at about 1:30 a.m. He was released pending a date in court after paying $200 bail.

The 32-year-old and pilot got into a heated quarrel after the man questioned the aviator’s skills, and then reportedly challenged, threatened and abused airport staff in the aftermath. n A Friday Harbor man was arrested for DUI and for furnishing alcohol to a minor following a failed attempt to elude an officer in pursuit. The 27-year-old was pulled over and taken into custody near the intersection of Harbor Street and Tucker Avenue at about midnight. His passenger, a 19-year-old man, was arrested for being a minor in possession of alcohol. April 7: Several bags stuffed with deer entrails were discarded on the property of a Lopez Island woman. The bags reportedly contained chunks of fur, bones and guts and, according to woman’s brother, who notified authorities of the discarded carnage, it’s not the first time that bags of animal entrails have been disrespectfully discarded on sister’s Hughes Bay Road property.

Whiteley era ends; legacy lives on

Wednesday, April 24, 2013 — 3

Renowned UW researcher driven by curiosity, passion, science, and love By Scott Rasmussen

Journal Editor

I

t was back in 1947, on a chilly Thanksgiving Day, that University of Washington biology professor Arthur Whiteley and his wife, Helen Riaboff, soon to be a worldwide renowned geneticist in her own right, first stepped foot onto the sprawling grounds of Friday Harbor Laboratories. The two were smitten. And over the course of the next 60-plus years, the Pacific Northwest power-couple of scientific research would each leave an indelible mark not only on the University of Washington, and on the Labs, but on their adopted home of San Juan Island as well. On April 15, Arthur Whiteley died at his Seattle home, at the age of 96. His heart finally gave out. But even after his beloved wife, Helen, passed away in 1990, at the age 69, friends and colleagues say that Whiteley’s curiosity and insatiable thirst for knowledge, and for life, never wavered. Neither did his affection for his departed wife. A recipient of the National Institutes of Health Career Award, in 1963, Riaboff ’s legacy lives on at the Labs within the hallowed walls of the Helen R. Whiteley Center, a retreat for scholars of all disciplines and for artists of all professions. The center was conceived of and guided by Whiteley himself. Colleague and friend Trish Morse, biology professor emetrius, recalls nothing was closer to Whiteley’s heart than was the center. “He watched over it like mother hen,” Morse said. “That was his dream, and he saw his dream come true.” Whiteley also founded a yearly scientific lecture series, in partnership with San Juan Nature Institute, that bears his name. Born in Dogawiac, Mich., in 1916, Whiteley was the son of a newspaper man who later would make a name for himself in politics, rising to the ranks of state senator. As a child, he received a small microscope as a gift, heralding a lifelong passion for science and research to come. In 1938, Whiteley graduated from Kalamazoo College, with a BA in biology, and a year later earned an MA in zoology from the University of Wisconsin. In 1947, while teaching at Cal Tech, sea urchins became a focus of his research and his exploration into the inner-workings of that creature continued when he accepted a teaching post in cell biology at the UW later that year. His life wasn’t confined to the laboratory, however, Morse recalls. Concern over plans to put salmon farms in Griffin Bay, back in the mid-1980s, prompted Whiteley and likeminded researchers to launch an investigation outside the halls of academia and into the impacts, of which little was known at the time. “We wouldn’t be getting prawns out of Griffin Bay now if they hadn’t done what they did back then,” she said. “He really was a citizen of Friday Harbor.”

suit are former county council members Richard Fralick and Lovel Pratt, and councilwoman Patty Miller. Filed in San Juan County Superior Court in mid-October, the lawsuit was later moved to Island County following a motion by CAPR attorney Dennis Reynolds that disqualified Judge Don Eaton from the case. Rulings will be handed down by Island County Judge Alan Hancock, who, along with Judge Vicki Churchill, presided over superior courts of both Island and San Juan counties up until 2007. The lawsuit contends important policy decisions were discussed at those meetings and that the public — because no public notice was given of them — was not allowed to attend or observe. In addition, it alleges the county failed to follow state law instructing counties how to revise a critical areas ordinance and shoreline master program, and to develop the so-called best available science. The lawsuit seeks to undo any “action” that was taken related to those meetings. CAPR’s Gordy Petersen maintains that the word “action” is broadly defined by state law. It is action that defines a

“meeting” and it applies to any discussion by council members of official county business and even to an exchange of emails, he said. “We have the facts on our side,” he said. “Our case is so clear cut.” In addition, Petersen notes that about a year ago the county prosecutor advised the council that public notice should be given for any meeting of a council sub-committee, which typically consists of three council members. “It’s not that they can’t do it,” he said of ad hoc or subcommittee meetings of the council. “It’s just that they need to give notice if they do.” Still, Gaylord contends there’s more to the state open meetings act than whether three members of the council attended a meeting at the same time. He said the implementation committee was not formed by the council to act on its behalf, that CAPR has failed to show that the council members who attended those meetings conducted any “official business” of the council while there, or that their attendance constitutes a “meeting” of the council, as defined by the OMPA.

department heads. “We had a regular manager’s meeting every Wednesday,” he said. “Major department heads would be there almost every week, minor department heads less frequently.” Because the commission knew what department managers were doing, “we didn’t have to micromanage because we knew that problems were being handled and projects completed,” Starr said. Reflecting on 12 years on the commission, Cowan thought that system “worked very well, because we were always looking for the middle ground, for the compromises that had to be made.” Evans compared his commission’s handling of planning issues to the CAO process. “It was astonishing how the council careened

Continued from page 1 “My observations about the six-person council was that members usually voted their consciences, which is not bad unless they don’t then look for the middle ground,” Cowan said, adding that “compromise” should be the new council’s watchword. Rhea Miller, who took over from Cowan, said the new council “will have to learn to compromise or they won’t get anything done.” Cowan and Evans agree that neither partisanship nor factionalism work well for a three-person council, especially in formulating a budget, which Evans thinks is its most important function. “Communication” is Miller’s suggested watch-

word. “The new council must get reliable information from department heads and advisory committees,” Miller said. “Managers must report directly to the council.” Evans said it is critical that the council doesn’t put its new manager between the council and department heads. He thinks the council’s job description for the manager, and the pay level, are “way off base” and “totally missing the point” of the charter amendment that eliminated the county administrator. The “grossly overpaid” manager is an “unnecessary position that will throw sand in the gears of county government,” he said. Starr thinks the new council should schedule weekly meetings with animal like it requires. Then along came MacLellan and girlfriend, Elizabeth Clark, a dog person as well. “He’s really smart and really good with tricks,” Clark said. “He needs someone who would keep his mind busy. He has a working dog kind of

through the CAO process,” he said. “We passed a shoreline management plan and a unified development code and implemented an entire growth management act for the county. The council simply lost control of the CAO process.” They all support countywide elections. “Most issues we decided were not islandspecific,” Miller said. And those that were, such as road repairs, “required us to use a countywide perspective, which meant sometimes I had to give up on a road project on Lopez for an even more important project on Orcas.” “The islands are already balkanized enough, so voting by district only made a bad situation worse,” Cowan said. “I thought it was nuts to do that.”

personality.” Zeus is a bit of a softy, too, she adds, like cuddling up with a favorite blankie when he takes a nap. “He’s definitely a ‘little dog’ in a big dog’s body.” Clark and MacLellan brought Zeus home as a foster dog after about two weeks of taking him walks from the shelter nearly every other day.

Ballots will be counted before and during the 76th Annual Meeting, Saturday, May 4, 9:45 to 11:15 on board the inter-island ferry.

Challengers, incumbents compete in Dist. 3 race; incumbent unopposed in Dist. 4 As the governing body of the cooperative, the sevenmember board will decide this year whether OPALCO will install countywide broadband technology to provide grid management for itself, enhanced cellphone and emergency communications to wireless companies and local emergency agencies, and high-speed internet and telephone services to its members. Board candidates are nominated by committee or by petition. District 3 committee nominations are Michael Karp, Jim Lett and Bob Myhr; Jerrold R. Gonce

and Dwight Lewis Jr. were nominated by petition of 15 members of District 3. The only District 4 nominee is John Bogert. Lett, Myhr and Bogert are incumbents. Candidate biographies are included with the ballots, or at www. opalco.com/wp-content/ uploads/2009/02/2013-Ballot-Booklet.pdf.

Members who turn in absentee ballots will be entered into a

drawing for six $50 utility bill credits. Members attending the meeting will receive free gifts, lunch and a $5 credit on the next bill, and a chance to win one of more than 50 door prizes. The purpose of the annual meeting is to conduct yearly business of the co-op; the election is the main event. OPALCO staff will be available to answer questions, and a brief Q&A with the general manager will follow the election. The meeting will not provide time for in-depth discussion of the broadband project, but a schedule of public forums will be distributed and posted on the website after the meeting.

‘Rural resistance’ takes poor path

I was sorry to read in Gordy Peterson’s guest column (“Battle lines drawn over power, control”, April 17, pg.7) that we have a chapter of the Rural Resistance in the San Juan islands. The philosophy that each person has the right to do whatever they like on their own land has long roots in American history. That philosophy says that we should all have the right to maximize our own profit and interests without taking account of our neighbor’s interests or that of the community as a whole. Rural Resistance tells us to “Trust Islanders” in their political literature, by which they mean do away with any regulation. Unfortunately, this would be the triumph of hope over experience. We cannot afford to live with that philosophy any longer. All of us have seen examples of development that results from this philosophy — nationally, locally and elsewhere in our state (Hood Canal comes to mind). Often, the environmental degradation is a cumulative impact of many decisions that many of us have made — such as the silting in of False Bay in my own neighborhood.

Our challenge is to work together to make it effective in doing the job of protecting the environment, not closing our eyes to the problems that exist.

United Way helps families to thrive

The San Juan Island Family Resource Center has greatly benefited from the financial support of United Way of San Juan County. Support has included funding for the Family Support Program, the Mentoring Program, Readiness To Learn Program, the Preschool to Kindergarten Transitions Program, and the Head Start Special Pal Program. These programs are making a difference for the children and families on our island. Providing opportunities for bonding is a protective factor that leads to a healthy community. Activities that promote opportunities for bonding are weekly Baby and Toddler Parent Groups , and Lapsit and Linger in partnership with the public library. The mentoring program offers youth in our community the opportunity to meet one-on-one with community adults on a weekly basis. These volunteer adults provide an array of experiences that broaden horizons, leading to an increased understanding of friendship, positive relationships and inter-

generational support. Success in school is paramount in today’s world. The transitions program provides a little extra boost to our young children about to begin their first public school experience. Special Pal gives preschoolers enhanced positive early learning experiences, paving the way for success in school and for the future. The readiness to learn program involves families in their children’s education. We know that such support and encouragement for both children and their parents increases parental involvement in school. Family involvement in school translates to better grades, behaviors, and attitudes. We hope you will join us with your contribution to this year’s United Way campaign. Your gift to United Way has a significant impact on the lives of our children, youth and families. Thank you. Joyce Sobel/staff SJI Family Resource Center

Sights set on OPALCO’s next 75 years

A

s this issue of the Journal goes to press, we don’t know which candidates won or lost. But we do know that hard hits were given and taken, and some of the trust we used to have in each other was questioned. The “us versus them” politics that has developed over the past few years, both nationally and locally, may be here to stay, sad to say. The PAC money virus has taken hold; those who think money is a weapon are unlikely to disarm. Not that they should. After all, spending money on a campaign is a fundamental of free speech; the U.S. Supreme Court has said just that. But the new council needs to lead the way to reclaiming the small town friendliness and respect and problem-solving that five generations of fisherman and farmers and shopkeepers — and, yes, developers — have engendered here. Let’s stop snarling and start smiling. The new council can do that with the “three C’s”: competence, common sense and compromise. They’ll have to compromise among themselves, of course, but, more importantly, they’ll have to compromise with voters that didn’t vote for them — without compromising their ideals. Politics ain’t beanbag (we found that out!) and it ain’t easy, either. You who have won have the opportunity to show both your supporters and your opponents that you deserved to win. Then, just maybe the abrasions and hurts can be helped. It’s not “forgive and forget”: but nursing grudges and “wait ‘til next time” isn’t going to solve any of the problems we have. We’ve got more important things to do. Let’s do them.

By Bob Myhr

hese are exciting and challenging times for OPALCO. We have celebrated our 75th Anniversary and our success in building a member-owned cooperative to meet our electrical needs in San Juan County. OPALCO consistently rates at the top of the co-op world for our safety record, system reliability, financial strength, and innovative approach to solving problems. The time has come to focus our attention on the next 75 years: the future of our co-op and the legacy we will leave to our children. As our region’s hydro-electric resources begin to reach capacity, energy is less abundant and more expensive than in the past. This presents a new challenge for continued success and new opportunities to engage our membership in energy savings and conservation that will help keep our rates down. We will continue to use and further develop utility smart-grid technologies that help us to be more efficient— but the greatest factor going forward will be increased member understanding of energy usage and changes to our household and business practices in how we manage our energy loads. With each new challenge we face, we will approach solutions together as a co-op. Our purpose is, as it has been since the beginning, to empower ourselves to improve the quality of our lives. To create this next chapter of OPALCO’s story, we need your help. What is your vision for the future of our co-op? What are your major concerns? What would

you like our co-op to look like 10 years from now? Part of that picture is our modern communications challenge: how to support our communities with a better, faster, more robust flow of information and data. How can OPALCO best meet this challenge? We have devoted serious study to the options and drafted the Broadband Bob Myhr Initiative plan for member consideration. In this rapidly changing world, we must stay on top of a complex equation of technical, organizational and environmental concerns to keep the co-op — and our communities — healthy and strong. As we continue to refine the plan, please share your input and feedback and help shape the way forward. Broad member support is required for the broadband project to be realized. OPALCO is always investigating partnerships that may be of benefit to our co-op. By far, the most important partnership is with you, our members. We are here to serve you. Now is the time to create a cohesive vision for the next chapter of OPALCO’s long story, and we want to hear from you. Please join us on Saturday, May 4, as we get on the ferry for OPALCO’s 76th annual meeting. Our theme is “The Next Chapter,” and we invite you to bring your ideas, your concerns, and your brightest vision to add into the mix for our future development. —Editor’s note: Incumbent Bob Myer is a District 3 candidate in the OPALCO board of directors election.

Candidate Forum: As We See It

Broadband puts co-op on shaky ground Plan calls for dramatic increase of debt; first step should be a vote by members

M

By Dwight Lewis & Jerry Gonce

any of us in San Juan County know that OPALCO’s Board of Directors is considering providing broadband service to its customers. But how many know what the cost of doing so might be? It has been said that OPALCO currently has assets of around $49 million and an indebtedness of around $14 million. The estimated cost for the broadband project Dwight Lewis is around $35 million. Adding an interest cost of $10 million, the members will find that as owner/ members of the cooperative, they will have an obligation of indebtedness of almost $60 million dollars. The OPALCO Broadband Study dated Jan. 18, 2013 sets forth the board’s financial plan for building the new system and providing service to approximately 90 percent of the cooperative’s owner/members. In it, the board acknowledges that “A telecommunication system such as this will be very expensive to build and operate”. They further stated that, “To generate the revenues required to offset the expense, a major portion of the membership must subsidize the creation of the system, and a large number of members must subscribe to the broadband service”. The board estimates that a subscription to the broadband service will cost about $75 per month. That is, if at least half of the 11,000-plus owner/members subscribe. However, they also estimate that it will require a $15 month “cooperative infraJerry Gonce structure” fee paid by all owner/members to build the system, provide ongoing maintenance and fund future upgrades. So, if an owner/member subscribes, it will cost them at least $90 month. A non-subscriber will be required to pay $15 month.

Even though the board has not, as yet, made a decision to actually embark on the broadband project they have spent considerable money getting advice from legal counsel, consultants and others. And, they continue to solicit members with newspaper ads to “sign up now” as a show of support for the proposed broadband service. See Ground, Page 8

Jean Sutherland in San Juan County, Wash. to parents Walter and Winnifred Sutherland of Orcas Island. Jean was born and raised in Friday Harbor. She lived on San Juan Island after marrying her first husband, who passed away from cancer leaving Jean widowed in 1980. Jean spent many years living in the beautiful San Juan Islands, where she helped run a dairy farm and

Creosote pilings, logs removed for free Friends of the San Juans and the Washington State Department of Natural Resources are partnering to remove toxic creosote-treated pilings and old structures from tidelands in the San Juans, at no cost to participating landowners. The goal of the project is to improve water quality and overall ecosystem health for salmon and salmon prey, and is part of DNR’s statewide creosote removal program, through which more than 13,400 tons of pilings, 231,000 square feet of over-water structures and 2,700 tons of toxic beach debris have been removed from the Salish Sea to date. Friends received funding from the state Salmon Recovery Funding Board to coordinate the program locally. Creosote-treated wood was commonly used in marine structures throughout the Salish Sea for more than a century during a period of rapid development and industrial expansion. Like other chemical compounds that were innovations in their time, creosote was broadly used without knowledge of its long-term consequences. It is now known that creosote contains more than 50 carcinogens and is toxic to marine fish and other wildlife. “Research has shown that herring eggs exposed to creosote have a high mortality rate,” said Friends Science Director Tina Whitman. “Chemicals found in creosote also affect juvenile salmon that migrate through contaminated estuaries by reducing their growth and altering immune function. These chemicals also affect other species, such as herring, that are important food for salmon, Orca and birds.” DNR has been partnering with local groups, governments, and private property owners to remove treated

Doctors, registered nurses and therapists worked together and beside me to help return me to the things I love.

By Steve Wehrly Journal reporter

I

f you like fairy tales and musical theater, you’ll love Stephen Sondheim’s “Into the Woods”. With one caveat: these are Grimm’s fairy tales, not Disney’s. Sondheim’s two-act, 30-song take on making wishes come true features the somewhat dark, Grimm, side of Cinderella, Jack and the Beanstalk, Rapunzel and Little Red Riding Hood. Mixed with fairy tale wishes (and a couple of gruesome outcomes) are the wishes of a baker and his wife for a child, who are on a quest to have a witch’s infertility curse lifted. This multi-Tony award-winning musical comes to the Whittier Stage on April 26, complete with the evil witch (played by Sound of Music star Jill Urbach) and cameo appearances by Snow White and Sleeping Beauty. As with all Sondheim musicals, the music is tuneful and the lyrics poetic, but the “feel” is closer to Sondheim’s Sweeney Todd than to Disney’s Mary Poppins. The story is both simple and dark. Director Margaret Hall explains: “I tell people who ask me about the play that Act I is all of the characters going into the woods to realize their wishes. Act II is ‘be careful what you wish for.’” Like Grimm’s fairy tales and Sondheim’s Sweeney Todd, the musical has funny moments, gruesome scenes (one of Cinderella’s sisters has her big toe amputated, another has her heel cut off) and thought-provoking episodes and conclusions. As with some earlier productions, Hall’s production offers a C hi ldren’s Matinee (without

the more adult Act II), scheduled for Sunday, April 28, at 2 p.m. Into the Woods competed for Tony Awards in 1988 with Phantom of the Opera. Nominated for ten awards, Sondheim’s musical came away with Best Score, Best Book and Best Actress awards, compared to Phantom’s seven awards. Into the Woods has been revived numerous times in New York and London, winning “Best Revival” Tony and Drama Desk awards in 2002. Music Director Jim Collado thinks Into the Woods is one of Sondheim’s “musical masterpieces.” “My goal is to take technically challenging music and make it entertaining,” Collado said. And challenging it is, in a play where music is a key part of the story and much of the music is actually part of the dialogue. Collado’s first musical direction effort at the San Juan Island Community Theater was last year’s Sound of Music. Kim Burns’s costumes are “fabulous, especially Cinderella’s ball gown and wedding dress,” said Hall, who said she enjoyed the challenging staging of Into the Woods and directing a cast that can really bring the complicated musical to life. “I love helping performers achieve their potential,” she said. Those performers include Deb Langhans as the Baker’s Wife, Scott Mapstead as the Baker, Jill Urbach as the Witch, Penelope Haskew as Cinderella, Nicholas Zervas as Jack, Grace Castle as Little Red Riding Hood, and Patti Bair as Jack’s Mother. The Community Theater production is especially timely: Into the Woods is this year being made into a feature film - with Meryl Streep playing The Witch. What a great chance to see and appreciate the original stage version of an outstanding Sondheim musical before comparing it with the movie version! Whittier Theater, April 26-27, May 2-4, May 9-11, 7:30 p.m.; May 5, 5 p.m.; Children’s Matinee, April 28, 2 p.m. Children’s Matinee tickets $8 each. Thursday, May 2: Adults $16 Students $8.

Join in the battle against hunger; get Zumba fit

San Juan Island Zumba instructors Bill and Rita Ament have joined forces with the Zumba Fitness Corporation to bring the “The Great Calorie Drive” to Friday Harbor. The program seeks to help end hunger through exercise. Here’s how it works: A person burns roughly 750 calories by participating in a one-hour Zumba session. For every one-hour Zumba class attended at the Ament’s Zumba headquarters, located at Dance

Workshop II, the Ament’s will donate 14 cents to the Untied Nations World Food Program and Feeding America as part of the program. With Zumba instructors in more than 185 countries worldwide, those pennies add up as the calories burn. Classes are Tuesdays and Thursdays, and Saturdays mornings. For more information, contact the Ament’s, 378-9628.

ONE hip

daughter Lacy Lamot.

Countless adventures. Though my hip was worse for the wear, I was still young at heart. Thanks to the Joint Replacement Center at PeaceHealth, my doctors and physical therapists offered care completely centered on me. Group therapy was my favorite. In fact, it’s where I met my new biking buddies. Everything I needed for recovery was in ONE convenient location. Doctors, registered nurses and therapists worked together and beside me to help return me to the things I love. I tell people I’m smiling because I can move again, pain free —let the adventures roll.
