Town digs in, ‘shovel ready’

Dump hand off stymied by delay Path to privatization of transfer stations slowed by red tape

By Steve Wehrly Journal reporter

By Steve Wehrly Journal reporter

Eighteen months after voters rejected the County Council’s plan for financing solid waste disposal operations with a property tax parcel fee, glitches in negotiations and financing are causing frustration and impatience on all sides, as schedules slip and costs mount in the county’s ongoing effort to privatize solid waste and recycling operations on Orcas and San Juan islands. But county officials and future site operators insist progress is being made, and that privatized operation of the Orcas transfer station and the San Juan drop-box facility will occur “this summer” despite delays. Orcas Recycling Services has not made required state and federal tax payments for past operations and has not completed an operations plan, as required by the county, before a contract can be executed authorizing ORS to assume operating responsibility for the Orcas transfer station. The tax liability question arose when ORS hired part-time employees in recent years to help community volunteers with increased garbage and recycling flows.

With garden basket in hand, Lopez Island’s Marlia Starwater is overjoyed to be one of nearly two dozen door prize winners at OPALCO’s annual meeting, May 4, on the Elwha ferry.

Once a year, one of a kind Differences over broadband aired at OPALCO annual meeting, No. 76 By Scott Rasmussen Journal editor

Door prizes. Election results. Free lunch. A chance to mingle with friends from afar. A state of the union address; an annual shareholders report. As many as 300 people climbed onboard the Washington State Ferries’ Elwha for the 76th annual meeting of Orcas Power & Light Cooperative, Saturday, May 4, and they did so for a variety of reasons. But the chance to weigh in on the risks and rewards of the power cooperative’s broadband initiative, with coop executives on hand, was clearly on the mind of many. “Stay in the business your in,” Lopez Island’s Bosco Bailey cautioned. “Live within your means.”

Fellow Lopezian Naomi Aldort was more emphatic. “Some of us don’t want it, keep it the way it is,” she said. While the portion of the annual meeting set aside for the Q & A of the broadband initiative was only part of the program, it stands as one of the biggest investments the power cooperative has contemplated since its formation. Under the initiative, as it stands today, OPALCO would borrow roughly $34 million to build and expand its network of fiber-optic lines and transmission capability, and provide high-speed Internet access and telephone service to its members, at a cost of $90 a month to those who sign up for the new service, and $15 a month for those who don’t. Interest on the federal loan, offered by the U.S. Department of Agriculture’s Rural Development Service, is expected to cost $10 million over the life of the 40-year loan. Though some remain skeptical, others maintain that better broadband delivered at higher and See ONce, Page 5

The Town of Friday Harbor at its May 2 meeting ended the brouhaha with Gearhart Construction over who should pay for a sidewalk and stormwater drainage on Blair Street next to Gearhart’s “new Printonyx” and apartment project. Gearhart pays, but the local developer-builder only has to come up with about $23,000 for its portion, less than half what it would cost Gearhart to do the construction by itself, according to Town Administrator Duncan See Shovel, Page 2

That dispute, though, only concerns a small part of a “town stimulus program” that Wilson and the town council have implemented to improve the “infrastructure” and the flow of traffic around town - and at the same time, get people working. The first part - the Front Street pedestrian access and beautification project - is finished, taking advantage of more than $200,000 of state money to build new sidewalks, ramps, stairs and planters across the street from the ferry landing. The first phase of the Blair Street project will be financed mostly by a $600,000 grant from the state Transportation

Improvement Board, matched by $73,000 from the town, $25,000 from the school district and $22,300 from Gearhart. The second phase from the U.S. Post Office to Spring Street is scheduled for 2014. Water transmission projects are the costliest items on the town’s plate, led by an $8 million project to bring a new main supply line from the town’s reservoir to town. Funding will come from a combination of utility bonds, the Public Works Trust Fund, the Drinking Water Fund and a USDA rural development grant and loan plus about $2 million from reserves put away for this purpose. Planning work by town staff, permitting and engineering are underway and will be finished in 2014, with full construction scheduled for 2015. A $200,000 “small” water-

Town crews work on repairing, replacing 200 feet of water line at the intersection of Argyle Avenue and Pear Point Road.

line project from First St. to Front St. will be accomplished this year, with a segment from Argyle Ave. to Second St. scheduled for 2014 - both paid for from water and sewer capital reserve funds. The Second St. to First St. segment was accomplished after last year’s watermain break in front of Haley’s. Later this year, a sidewalk will be built on the west side of Mullis Street from the airport to Spring Street; that project will be financed with $138,000 from the Transportation Improvement Board and $15,000 from the town. Other projects are in the works, including repaving and sidewalks on Tucker Street near University Street and opening up the now closed Nash Street right of way next to Market Street. But the cherry on the top of the sundae is a big remodel of the old fire house on West Street next to the town hall. It’s a major project that would create a “Fire Department Museum” in half of the truck bay and build a council chambers meeting room in the other half. The present upstairs would provide additional town office space, space that Wilson says is “much needed to alleviate severe overcrowding” in the present town hall. Wilson ended a recent interview with The Journal by noting that the town council, the mayor, Treasurer Wendy Picinich and he himself spend “a huge amount of our time

finding money, managing money, and putting money away. Friday Harbor is a small town with big town issues. Issues that all cost money,” he concluded.

Robyn is an Advanced Placement Studio Art student. She will attend Western Washington University next fall, where she plans to major in art and science. “I was so proud of Robyn for being selected to receive such a prestigious award,” said art teacher Andy Anderson. “She has worked very hard on her skills and is so deserving of recognition at the state level.” More information can be found at www.k12.wa.us/ Arts/ArtShow.

Spotlight shines on healthy shorelines Futurewise and Friends of the San Juans are sponsoring three educational forums about healthy shorelines on Lopez Island (May 10), San Juan Island (May 17) and Orcas Island (June 4). The forums provide information about the San Juan County Shoreline Master Program update, currently being reviewed by the county Planning Commission and the subject of public hearings at the County Council later in the year. The Sound Science forums are an opportunity to learn about the science behind the shoreline master program, including the coastal process, seagrasses and other vegetation, bulkheads, the economic value of shorelines, and tribal perspectives on shorelines. The San Juan Island forum features four speakers: Curtis Tanner, of the Puget Sound Nearshore Ecosystem Restoration

Forums feature marine experts, up to date science of shoreline habitat Project, will explain how the shorelines have changed over time, the use of the shoreline by wildlife and where the most problematic changes are and why; Dr. Megan N. Dethier, of Friday Harbor Labs, will talk about the impacts of armoring on Puget Sound shorelines; Todd Woodard, field Supervisor with the Samish Indian Nation Natural Resources Department, will speak about tribal cultural resources and the shorelines; and Jeffrey Eustis, attorney and adjunct professor of environmental law at Seattle University, will address legal aspects of the SMP update. The forums are hosted by Futurewise and Friends of the San Juans.

The Lopez forum will be held May 10 from 1-3:30 p.m. at the Lopez Center. The San Juan forum will be

held May 17 from 1-4:30 p.m. (with an optional lunch at noon for $10) at the San Juan Island Grange. The Orcas Forum will be held at the Eastsound Firehouse from 1-3:30 pm. For more information and to register, go to http://futurewise.org/ action/SanJuanForums/.

“We’ll get these contract terms ironed out, but we’ve got to negotiate the best result for the people of San Juan County.” — Frank Mulcahy, Public Works Director

“We have some things we want in that contract,” said town Administrator Duncan Wilson, “but the county is doing the negotiations and we think the results will work for us, the county and Lautenbach.” Privatizing solid waste operations was mandated by the County Council after voters in 2011 rejected the council’s property tax parcel fee to fund solid waste handling. In mid-2012, the Department of Public Work solicited proposals from private companies interested in operating the Orcas and San Juan Island transfer stations. Meanwhile, community activists on Lopez Island devised and won council and voter approval for a Lopez Solid Waste Disposal District to operate the Lopez dump. In late 2012, the council instructed Public Works to negotiate contracts for the Orcas and San Juan Island facilities with Orcas Recycling Services and a partnership of Lautenbach Industries of Mount Vernon and Kentec Energy of Seattle, respectively. Public Works Director Frank Mulcahy at that time projected that private operations would commence by April 1, but operational and contractual problems have pushed start dates into June or July. Adding to the problems for the Orcas Island group are fallout from the fire that destroyed the Exchange, criminal charges now being faced by a director of ORS, and a delay in completing an operations plan by URS Corp., the consultant hired by ORS to prepare that plan. County Councilwoman Patty Miller doesn’t think the Orcas contract is in

danger of being canceled, but, she says, “It’s time that ORS provides the council with its plan of operations and an accounting of its tax liabilities.” Gaylord said he understands the tax liability ORS faces is an estimate and that the council wants a complete and thorough accounting before they decide to go forward with a contract. “The council must be satisfied that the contract and the plan of operations are financially sound and in the best interests of the citizens of San Juan County,” said Gaylord, who advises the council on the legalities of its actions. Gaylord also said that because the allegations against ORS board member Errol Speed involve making false statements to county offices, the council should take the charges into consideration in their deliberations over ORS’ operation of the Orcas facility. ORS board chairman Moe recognizes the need to deliver the plan and says that full accounting and explanation of the tax situation will be provided to the council. He said that consultants retained by ORS have finished a “draft” operations plan and are working on emergency and contingency plans, all of which will be delivered “in the next few weeks.” Moe supports Speed as a “valuable” member of the board, which, he noted, is not asking Speed to resign. “We’re aware of the situation and we will wait to see what the council says,” he said. “I’m extremely confident the project will proceed as planned.” Meanwhile, the county is paying Waste Management See Delay, Page 5

Opinion Letters to the Editor

Name game; fun with wildflowers

I was delighted to see some of my favorite spring wildflowers, Henderson’s Shooting Stars, on the cover of yesterday’s Journal (May 1 edition), but sorry your caption-writer missed a great opportunity to identify them for others. I love seeing these little beauties along the woodland paths when I hike, and being able to call out, “Shooting Stars!” Maggie Gallivan Island wildflower-lover

‘Into the Woods’, smashing success

I’m writing this letter in support of the Community Theatre and “Into the Woods”. But first let me back up. Many of us came here not only for island scenery, but because we love the idea of local community. We’ve been able to set our “way-back machine” to another time where neighbors still know neighbors and an entire community turns out to support local events. This way of life is fast disappearing. We came here knowing the tradeoffs. We don’t have the array of choices —restaurants, music, theater — offered by a big city. Nevertheless, these islands have enticed all kinds of gifted people willing to share their gifts. So we do, in fact, have some great restaurants, artists, writers, musicians, actors, and theater. This past Saturday

night I had the opportunity to see the production of Sondheim’s “Into the Woods.” The storyline is a blending of five fairy tales that digs deeper into their heart with humor and compassion. Some say that you don’t leave a Sondheim musical humming the tunes like you do after Richard Rogers. But Sondheim’s great comic song “Agony”, and the poignant “Children Will Listen” and “No One is Alone” rank up there with the best. Very few amateur groups can take on Sondheim, and I’m delighted that our community possesses the talent necessary to pull off the ambitious musical score. With a professional-sounding orchestra to boot! Many performances I saw would not be out of place on the main stages of any big city. Which brings me back to Saturday. I was disappointed for my fellow islanders who put so much effort into this production, to see the theater half full. “Into the Woods” is a show about community. And community requires active participation. Think of it as a barn-raising. Everyone turns out. Every year our theater productions get better and better. It takes an exceptional community to pull off a show like “Into the Woods.” It also takes a community to fill the seats. Let’s build on what we have so that we don’t lose it. Let’s not forget why we came here, that we are a community who support one another to keep our dreams alive. Please support your fellow islanders and go see “Into the Woods”!

Nowhere without talented teachers

We simply can’t say it enough: “Thank you Friday Harbor teachers!” As we celebrate National Teacher Appreciation Week May 6-10, we want to give a big thank you to the dedicated teachers and staff that make our island children thrive. Our schools may be small compared to many, but success is overflowing in so many ways, including Friday Harbor High School just receiving another US News and World Report Gold Medal, ranking #5 out of 587 Washington schools. As William Arthur Ward is quoted as saying, “The mediocre teacher tells. The good teacher explains. The superior teacher demonstrates. The great teacher inspires.” We are indeed lucky as a community to have inspiring educators giving students their best!

Thank you for publishing “Newlyweds: Wooten & Savage”, May 1, pg. 8. I’m not acquainted with them, but I am very happy to learn that after all those years together, these two women are finally able to marry. It was a very refreshing surprise to see their smiling faces as newlyweds in the newspaper, where they belong with other newly wedded couples.

Editorial

Guest Column

No reason for secrecy T

Ounce of prevention, pound of cure

he new San Juan County Council has a chance to show that “open government” and “transparency” are not phrases heard only in election campaigns. On Wednesday, May 14, the six finalists for the newly created job of county manager will be interviewed three times — by the new council, by county department managers and by a citizens panel. These meetings, occurring within minutes after the council is sworn in, should be open to all. If the council conducts these interviews behind closed doors, outside public view, nobody except a select few will have the chance to see the next county manager in live action. We won’t know what the questions are, much less the answers. We won’t know the ideas and governmental philosophy of the most important unelected county employee — a person the county plans to pay up to $150,000 a year. Public meetings that are closed to the public are incubators for distrust. Lawsuits have been brought and elections lost in this county in part because of meetings to which the public was not invited. Voters approved a charter amendment that called for more, not less, open meetings. All three councilmen promised voters their election would be a new day for transparent, open government. The open meetings law does not require any meeting to be held in secret: whether a meeting is open is up to the council. In fact, the applicable law states “discussion of a governing body of salaries, wages, and other conditions of employment to be generally applied within the agency shall occur in a meeting open to the public.” The law permits a meeting to be closed under specific circumstances, mostly for reasons of pending litigation or for discussion of potential real estate deals, or for reasons related to personnel matters of existing employees. There’s no good reason that we can see to close these meetings. We’ll wager even the job candidates would want their interviews to be public. The newly elected council should resist the temptation to have its first meeting be one that occurs behind closed doors, especially with so much at stake.

By Elli Gull

nited Way of San Juan County has invested in local PIP programs for over 18 years. PIP helps preschool to 3rd grade children who are struggling with issues which interfere with school success. There are five PIP programs countywide, where trained adult “Special Pals” help each child learn about themselves, identify feelings and develop interpersonal skills. Results are measured annually and are consistently positive. We all benefit when children succeed in school, and helping the children most in need at this stage is an important investment in our community. Here is just one example from the literally hundreds of success stories: Mason (name changed), a 6-yearold boy, moved to the island and after being here less than two weeks, lost a close family member in an accidental tragedy. His parents had not managed to find consistent work, and they were in danger of being homeless, as well as without adequate food and health services. The child would not talk in his school classroom, never smiled, and was not learning. He was referred to PIP and began

one-on-one session with a Special Pal in the program. He bonded to her over time, seeking her out on the playground and in the hallways between activities. Slowly, he began to participate in the classroom more, making eye contact with the teacher and raising his hand occasionally. With more help from his Special Pal, he began to identify someone to make friends with in his grade. By the end of the school year, he had more than one friendship and began smiling. By finding someone he could trust and he knew would help him, he took some risks to join the elementary school community and begin a journey of success. Each PIP program struggles to find funding while facing increased need to help more students. Amara Zee from FHES PIP said, “Every year we don’t know what funding we will have. Private funding would be helpful, especially if it was a yearly amount that programs could count on. We continue to have a waiting list and just don’t have enough time in the day to meet the need.”

Contributions from the community are critical to each PIP program. Without PIP, many children each year will be unable to access this important resource, and will therefore be unable to achieve the success they deserve in school. The great thing about United Way is that one gift helps dozens of carefully screened programs in San Juan County, including PIP. Donations can be designated to specific programs. The hope is that islanders will step up and show their support to help these programs, not only to continue, but to expand to help more kids. Joyce Sobel, from the San Juan Island Family Resource Center (Head Start PIP) said, “In these times of increased knowledge of the importance of the early years for future development and learning, PIP is an invaluable early intervention program that will alleviate potential problems in school and society for years to come.” — Editor’s note: Elli Gull is director of United Way San Juan County

T

he San Juan Island Yacht Club welcomed 80 degree weather, 24 boats and nearly 200 people to its two-day party, the Cinco de Mayo Opening Day Boat Parade. Chaired by Fleet Captain Hank Snider and coordinated for the fifth year in a row by Burke Critchfield, the annual start to boating season marks the kickoff of the yacht club’s 50th year — measured from the first Sunday in May, 1964, when seven boat owners headed from Jensen’s Marina to Sucia, deciding at Sucia to form the club. The club now has 202 members. The boat-savvy judges panel consisted of Elisa Schoultz of Jensen’s Boatworks, Tammy Hayes of the Port of Friday Harbor, and Cask & Schooner restaurateurs Marshall Davis, owner of the classic 80-foot coastal schooner “Spike Africa”. Seventeen of the 24 boats were awarded prizes donated by supportive boating businesses. Best Boat was Kit Pingree’s “Teal,” a 74-foot cruising boat originally built as an open-ocean Alaska fish patrol boat. Best Traditional Boat was “Rebozo,” a 48-foot Offshore owned by Bill and Rebbie Bates. Best Theme Boat was Mike Close’s “At Ease,” a 36-foot Universal Trawler — renamed “Sinko de Boato” for the day and outfitted it with a live goat. The yacht club is now expecting continued good weather for its July 4 Vice Commodore’s Cruise, led by Bish Wheeler to Ganges Harbor, and for the annual Shaw Island Classic, in which sailboaters choose which way to go around Shaw Island.

Make art out of metal at IMA workshops San Juan Islands Museum of Art and nationally renowned sculpture artist Lanny Bergner have joined forces to offer two one-day workshops, entitled “Metal Mesh and More”. Whether it’s stainless steel, bronze, copper, brass, aluminum mesh, or other materials, meshwork joins together materials to craft various organic and geometric shapes. Participants will learn about structural qualities of various materials and surfacing techniques, such as flame treatments, and steps like coiling, fraying, twisting, wrapping, gluing and knotting, in which mundane industrial materials are transformed

into inspiring works of art. Based in Anacortes, Bergner, whose artwork is on exhibit at IMA, is a mixed-media sculptor/ installation, fiber and sculptural vessel artist. His work appears in numerous collections in the U.S. and abroad, including the Seattle Art Museum, the Museum of Art and Design in New York, and Fuller Craft Museum in Maine. In 2001, he was one of five U.S. artists invited to exhibit in the prestigious 13th International Triennial of Tapestry in Łódź, Poland. His work was recently included in the book “Fiber Art Today”, a survey of contemporary international fiber artists.

Class size for each workshop, May 17 and May 18, is limited to 12 participants.

On Book! Travel inside the mind of Tibetan tales

Journey inside the human skull and into traditional Tibetan passages that aid and comfort at time of death, as San Juan Community Theatre’s On Book! Readers Theatre presents “The Tibetan Book

of the Dead or How Not to Do it Again”. Directed by Gretchen Gubelman, the production in the ongoing Readers Theatre series of new, classic and prize-winning plays features playwright Jean Claude Van Itallie’s depiction of the soul as it reexperiences the life cycle as it floats, momentarily, free from the trials of earthly existence while striving to overcome ambitions, wants, jealousies and fears that obscure a crucial turning point. The production offers a unique perspective, as Itallie uses the interior of the human skull as the setting for the play. Performances are May 13 and May 14, 7:30 p.m., in the theatre’s Gubelman Room. Admission is free. The six-person cast features: Claire Glasgow, Rosa Blair, Yvonne Mancuso, Tori Zehner, Roberta Leed, Therese Finn, Maureen See and CenYing Miles.
