Animal love

Orcas couple goes to Thailand to work with elephants, returns home with new puppy by COLLEEN SMITH ARMSTRONG Editor/Publisher

Packs of dogs roam freely and happily among the elderly elephants. Most of these canines are owned by the sanctuary’s staff and are part of the family. Nearby, hundreds of dogs are contained in outdoor runs. Some are sweet, some are aggressive. All of them were rescued from the streets of Bangkok after floods left them homeless and injured. “Many had rotted limbs and needed amputations,” said Tracy Harachi, who traveled to the Elephant Nature Park in Thailand last December with her husband Nate Yoffa. “One dog gave birth while clinging to a cement wall, submerged in water ... her tail rotted off.” Harachi, a professor at the University of Washington and Yoffa, who works for a software company, went to the park to lend care to elephants who were rescued from inhumane and abusive work conditions. But they encountered something unexpect-

ed: hundreds of dogs and cats who survived Thailand’s devastating floods in 2011. The founders of Elephant Nature Park gathered up the animals and brought them to the 150-acre park via small boats. At one point, they had 500 dogs. There are around 40 dogs per run. “It was completely overwhelming,” Yoffa said. In addition to feeding and caring for the animals, the nonprofit provides free vet care and spay/ neuter services to the nearby villages. Yoffa and Harachi spent time with many of the dogs, including a shepherd mix named Steel. She was hit by a car and put in a metal cage to die, as euthanasia is not permitted in Thailand. Steel lost both of her hind legs, and now gets around with a set of wheels and a specially built tile floor. One dog in particular caught their attention: a young, sweet pup named Bua Kao, which means “White Lotus.” She had been at the

Contention over aerial photos contract by STEVE WEHRLY Journal reporter

Controversy over a contract for high-tech aerial photographs of San Juan County clouded the final meeting of the six-person county council on May 7. The council approved a $122,000 threeyear contract with Pictometry International on March 12 to update a set of comprehensive photographs first obtained six years ago. The photos are used for road and land use planning by the Public Works and Community Development and Planning departments, and for various purposes by other government and private agencies. Councilmen Marc Florenza and Bob Jarman previously voted against the contract and renewed their objections at the May 7 hearing. When originally approved, the council required Stan Matthews, interim information services manager, who brought the proposal to the council, to obtain one-third of the cost from non-county sources, such as the Port of Friday Harbor, San Juan Island Fire Department and Eastsound Sewer and Water District. Several of the original targets refused, but Matthews convinced other contributors,

such as Roche Harbor Resort, to contribute. After citizens expressed opposition to the plan (especially the “oblique” photographs that provide side views of properties), council members rethought their support for the project and expressed those second thoughts at the council meeting. They questioned Matthews for an hour, ending the hearing by passing a motion “to contact Pictometry to see what it would cost to get out of the contract.” Matthews testified he was “gobsmacked by the controversy” over the contract, recounting that when Pictometry approached the county proposing to photograph San Juan County in conjunction with their current photo project for Whatcom and Skagit Counties, he and other county department heads thought it an opportunity to update the county photo portfolio and save money both the county and local residents. The contract was negotiated by Matthews, approved by Prosecuting Attorney Randy Gaylord’s office and signed by Bob Jean, interim county manager, on April 9. The first $16,000 payment was sent to Pictometry a few days later, before Pictometry reportedly signed

the contract on April 26. The council on May 7 questioned Matthews on both the process and substance of the contract. Forlenza said it was “surprising that $110,000 was suddenly freed up” to spend on the photography; Matthews countered that most of the money was “grant money” that was available to departments such as Public Works and Community Development and Planning for projects related to their general responsibilities. Forlenza concluded the project was a “snafu.” Councilman Rich Peterson was troubled by disclaimers in the contract fine print that said the photographs were “not suitable for hydrographic planning” and were “not intended to substitute for a professional survey.” Matthews explained that these were “standard contractual provisions” to protect Pictometry from lawsuits. Peterson ended his questions clearly troubled, saying, “I fault myself for not asking a lot of different questions” about the proposal. Council members Rick Hughes, Jamie Stevens and Patty Miller expressed similar

Nineteen students from Orcas Island School District traveled to Bainbridge Island on May 4 to compete in the 2013 Washington State Math Olympiad, a state-wide event that hosts a challenging one day competition for 3,000 students at locations spread throughout the state. Training for this year’s event began last fall, with some students practicing in an after school class organized by the Funhouse and Orcas Island Parks and Recreation. Guided

by Funhouse staff Lana Hickmann and Funhouse board member and mathematician Carl de Boor, fourth - sixth grade students would meet after school to tackle a diversity of math problems from algebra and geometry to measurement and probability. In January, the class divided into 3 separate grade levels taught by Middle School Teacher Lori Oakes, sixth grade parent volunteers David Kau and Chris Waage, and fifth grade parent volunteers Chris Sutton and Ian Lister.

Participation in the two day event, was made possible by OISD, a large grant from the Orcas Island Education Foundation, as well as support from a private anonymous donor. This year’s student performance at the competition was impressive. Solid performances were demonstrated at all grade levels with one team taking home two medals for their Superior performance and three teams receiving ribbons for Excellence. “Orcas should be proud of all these students. The competition was an eye opening experience, even for the coaches. The kids were not intimidated by the larger and specialized schools from places like Seattle, Redmond, and Bainbridge,” said one Orcas coach. “It takes a lot of dedication to work through many afternoons of extra math. Some of the first time students were so fired up by the event they are already practicing for next year.”

Orcas school musicians attend honor orchestra

Seven musicians from Orcas Middle School and sixth grade were accepted at this year’s Junior Honor Festival which took place on Saturday, May 4 at North Whidbey Middle School in Oak Harbor. Presented by the San Juan Music Educators Association, the Festival hosted some of the top musicians (233 students from 23 area middle schools) at an all-day rehearsal, concluding with a concert. Devon Mann and Maggie Page participated in the Junior Honor Band conducted by Parker Bixby, band director for Mercer Island High School. The Honor Band prepared three selections: “April” by Aaron Perrine, “Adrenaline Engines” by Randal Strandbridge and the beautiful “Earth Dance” by Michael Sweeney. “This is an experience that our kids will not soon forget,” said Martin Lund, Orcas Band director. “To play with an 80-member band, and to be a part of that big sound – it’s lifechanging.”

What’s new at 4-H Noxious weed alert: shiny geranium by KATE YTURRI, JUDY WINER and GWEN STAMM WSU Master Gardeners

Be on the lookout for shiny geranium in your yard.This fast growing, small plant has been recently spotted on Orcas Island near the golf course and in Moran State Park. It is low growing and spreads quickly across a lawn, into ornamental beds and even potted plants. It has rounded, lobed shiny leaves, red stems and tiny pink or

4-H is a club where you can learn all kinds of things, like how to take care of animals. At the last 4-H meeting at the Grange students learned from Susan Stolz-Kau how to clip a rabbit’s nails, and how to hold and show a rabbit. We saw a demonstration of sheep sheering by Amy Lum, and Kathy Morris showed us how to trim a sheep’s hooves. Greg White showed how to make yarn with a drop spindle. Some people brought goats and some brought chickens. Two sheep got loose and ran around in the grass, but they got caught pretty quickly.

Spring Point fire drill on May 18 Orcas Island Fire and Rescue will be performing a community-based drill in the Deer Harbor area on Saturday, May 18 from 9 a.m. to noon. The exercise will involve a simulated wildfire in the Spring Point neighborhood with a partnered response from Deer Harbor Community members, OIFR, San Juan County Sheriff, San Juan County Dept. of Emergency Management, U.S. Coast

Guard, The Red Cross and Airlift Northwest. Components of the drill include firefighting, EMS transport with Airlift Northwest, and a marine evacuation from Spring Point to Deer Harbor via the San Juan County Sheriff and the U.S. Coast Guard. The Red Cross will be setting up a support shelter at the Deer Harbor Inn. The new Station 24 in Deer Harbor will serve as the command post for the drill.

Shiny geranium reproduces by seed and has the capability to forcefully eject seeds when ripe. It is usually found in well-shaded woodlands and forest openings as well as in full to partial sun. Controlling it is difficult. Hand pulling alone is not successful. The

Diving accident results in tragedy A crew member of a Lummi fishing boat died Thursday while diving for sea cucumbers in Griffin Bay on San Juan Island. According to the San Juan County Sheriff ’s Department, the 47-year-old Bellingham man, Albert B. Hillaire, complained about difficulty breathing while ascending from 70 feet below the surface of the bay. Hilliare reportedly collapsed while trying to climb back onboard the boat and fell backwards into the water. He had worked as a commercial diver for about a year before the fatal accident, Sheriff Rob Nou said. The sheriff ’s office received a 9-1-1 call from the two other men aboard the boat around 10:35 a.m. on May 9. The man was rescued from the water by fellow crew members, who started CPR and tried to revive him as the boat made a beeline for the boat ramp at Jackson’s Beach. The boat was met by San Juan EMS and emergency responders, who were unable to resuscitate the man. He was pronounced dead at 11:13 a.m. The diver appears to have been appropriately equipped and alcohol or drugs do not appear to have been a factor, according to the sheriff ’s department. An autopsy will be conducted by the Snohomish County Medical Examiner.

application of a heavy layer of mulch usually works. Herbicides such as glyphosate and broadleaf specific triclopyr applied prior to blooming should be a last resort. “Noxious weed” is the legal term for invasive plants that are so aggressive they harm our local ecosystems or disrupt agricultural production. Shiny geranium is Class A noxious weed in Washington, which means it is invasive but still not so widespread as to be impossible to eradicate. Noxious weed law in Washington requires that all property owners help prevent and control the spread of invasive plants.

Editorial The dark side of ‘Oliver!’ By staff reporter Cali Bagby

H

e slaps me. I put my hand to my cheek feeling for the damage. A blue light hangs over me. I start to sing “As long as he needs me, oh yes, he does need me – in spite of what you see I’m sure that he needs me.” It’s my big solo as Nancy in the show “Oliver!” playing this week at Orcas Center. For a review of the play, see page 5. For some background, Nancy is a young woman living in London circa 1800. As a youth she was brought in by the villain Bill Sykes and “thieved for him since she was a child … and for 12 years since.” The solo “As long as he needs me,” is a response to Sykes and an explanation to the audience as to why she stays in the abusive relationship. It is a song that inspires comments like “I hate that song,” and “What a terrible message.” It has also served as a jumping board for friends and family to say, “I have been Nancy, I have felt that way,” or “my friend is in that situation right now, she won’t leave him, she doesn’t think she is strong enough ... she loves him.” It is interesting that so many people can identify with a story that was written in 1838. For me, playing Nancy has forced me to look at her choices through different lenses. Nancy doesn’t see any worth in herself, but she finds herself willing to risk her life for the child Oliver. In this act she becomes the hero and though she does not meet a happy ending, she does find transformation. The message of “Oliver!” may be different for each person who experiences the play, but as art it succeeds in making us feel and possibly think differently about violence, love and redemption.

Clarification Last week’s story about the future of solid waste in San Juan County was unclear regarding problems at the Exchange in paragraph 10. Orcas Recycling Services Board member Errol Speed is in no way connected to the fire in February. His criminal charges are involving private property and building code.

To the Editor: Taking steps to build resiliency Research shows that prevention and early intervention are the best medicine. When we reach children early, we reclaim for them years of health and happiness, and increase the likelihood that they will grow to be responsible, caring citizens. The PIP (Primary Intervention Program) at Orcas Elementary School helps to promote young children’s success by assisting them in discovering their personal strengths and enhancing their selfesteem. PIP has become a mainstay within our school for the past twenty years and continues to assist up to 25 percent of children in the primary grades. United Way of San Juan County has also become a mainstay in providing funds to help PIP continue to help kids. Last year, the program served over 25 children with year-end results showing positive and measurable growth in their academics and social success. Children who experience early school success are more committed to education, more resilient to difficulties, more empowered to overcome challenges and to make healthy lifestyle choices. Your donations to United Way are making a difference in the lives of many children. Thank you. Margie Sabine Primary Intervention Program

Property owners’ needs are important With a new county council to be sworn in and a new county administrator to be hired, it is timely to recommend a policy change. For all too long county policy has evidenced a purpose to obstruct property owners’ desires whenever construction or property development was involved. Some applauded this anti-development sentiment. This past election demonstrated that voters have perhaps had enough of these obstructionist policies. What is recommended is a wholehearted commitment to the belief that citizen property owners should make the decisions about development, and that county employees should be facilitators of their intentions. And more importantly, that citizens’ interests and not political agendas should be their ascendant concern. Such a change in attitude is not to be interpreted as meaning that our codes are to be bent or relaxed. Rather, it acknowledges that our codes are now myriad and that citizens need facilitators in government to guide them through the maze. An anecdote from my years of experience as an architect and general contractor is instructive. One large city had enacted a landscape ordinance which I had read and reread and for the life of me could not see an interpretation that would allowing for permitting a project

without expensive landscaping (on a 10-acre property owned by a Catholic church and school that could ill afford the expense). I appeared before the permitting official and humbly asked if there was perhaps something I had missed in trying to come up with the required “landscape points.” The property was mostly wellmaintained lawns with little other vegetation. The bright young code official sure earned by admiration when he indicated that trees in the alley right of way could be counted! My experience is that such a cooperative response is rarely forthcoming unless specifically requested. And it is this sort of facilitating response that our permitting officials need to evidence as a matter of routine. Both our elected and employed officials would do well to keep in mind that they are there primarily for residents and not to further some environmental or political agenda. Be facilitators.

It’s a fine life

Review of play ‘Oliver!’ at Orcas Center by COLLEEN SMITH ARMSTRONG Editor/Publisher

Orcas Center’s newest production is community theatre at its finest. Director Deborah Sparks has brought together a dynamic cast that has chemistry throughout the two hours they are singing, acting, fighting and crying on center stage. The lead performers of “Oliver!” – Mason Scoggin, Robert Hall, Cali Bagby and Matthew Laslo-White – completely immerse themselves into their characters. Throw in some incredible costumes and inventive sets, and the audience is right there on the grimy, destitute streets of 1800s London. Alongside the catchy show tunes are serious social issues like poverty, child abuse and domestic violence. For an editorial by Bagby about her character, see page 4. The orchestra and back stage crew are the backbone of the play, allowing the cast to transport the audience. These productions require incredible volunteer hours for both the kids and adults, who juggle school and work with rehearsal schedules. Thank you for valuing the arts and offering pieces like this in our community. “Oliver!” will be performed this week on Thursday, Friday and Saturday at 7:30 p.m.

LETTERS FROM 4 plug our internet in and receive 10 megabytes from CenturyLink with no radiation and with an excellent phone service (with all the goodies) and unlimited long distance. Our cost is $65 a month. “Experts” in the industry will tell us that the radiation involved is less than we receive from the sun. The fallacy in this is that we evolved on this planet for millions of years and have evolved in harmony with the sun’s radiation. It is not by accident that cancer has exploded in recent years. WiFi is not the same as the sun’s radia-

tion and “experts” always defend the industry and not our health. They said X-rays were safe when they weren’t. Same is true for DDT, Thalidomide and other experiments on the public that are too numerous to mention. The population’s general health is declining due to radiation pollution and food with lists of ingredients that sounds like a chemistry experiment. Radiation should be used by choice only and not inflicted on all against their will. OPALCO’s proposal will severely harm residents health and should not be implemented. Naomi Aldort Orcas Island

SHERIFF’S LOG

San Juan County Sheriff’s Department reported responding to these calls:

April 22: A Lopez Island man faces a possible DUI charge following a single-car collision near the intersection of Airport and Fisherman Bay roads. The 46-yearold drove into a ditch at about 4 p.m. Although he initially claimed to be uninjured, the man reportedly was unable to stand up on his own and, following an evaluation by EMS personnel, was flown off-island for medical treatment. April 28: Someone smashed the driver's side window of a pickup parked near Turtleback Mountain trailhead at Crow Valley Road

and stole $100 in cash and a GPS device in an apparent early evening theft. The driver of the pickup, a 17-yearold Orcas Island girl, and a 17-year-old female friend, discovered the damage and items missing after reportedly returning to the parking lot at about 9 p.m. April 29: Nearly $1,000 in personal belongings vanished from a Subaru sedan in an apparent mid-afternoon theft at the Lopez ferry terminal parking lot. The owner of the sedan, a 27-year-old Lopez woman, reportedly left it in the parking lot at about 1:30 p.m. and discov-

ered $998 worth of belongings were no longer inside the vehicle when she returned at about 7 p.m. May 3: Accusations of a free-roaming pit bull and threats of violence are the latest in a long-running series complaints – No. 17 in all – in a dispute over a trailer parked on property belonging to a Lopez woman. The 53-year-old accused the couple who reportedly have resisted moving their trailer from her property on Aleck Bay Road of allowing their pit bull to run loose in her yard. A 34-year-old woman claims that the woman's boy-

friend recently threatened her with harm. Local prosecutors reportedly notified the combatants earlier that law enforcement officials will not take sides in the dispute. May 4: A dispute over money between two Orcas Island men erupted into a mid-afternoon altercation in Eastsound village. The two men reportedly came to blows in the 100 block of Prune Alley shortly before 3 p.m., after a 52-year-old man, who claims he is owed money, began yelling at his 22-year-old adversary. Neither reportedly intend to press charges at this time.

RESCUED FROM 1

Harachi and Yoffa have been adopting older dogs for years. B.K. is their first young canine. With the help of Orcas trainer KT Hendrie and lots of positive reinforcement, the dogs seemed to have worked out their differences. Now they can all ride in the car together and don’t fight over food. And Takeshi, a cat rescued from Cambodia, rules the roost, bossing everyone around. Harachi travels to Cambodia up to four times a year to do social work. Her next trip is in June and she will drop off dog supplies at the Elephant Nature Park. She and Yoffa will be returning to the park next December. “It’s a comfortable exis-

tence for the dogs, cats and elephants that live together,” Harachi said. “But it’s not like an American shelter where someone will walk in and say ‘I want to adopt a dog.’ The 300 dogs there are likely staying where they are.”

For more information, go to www.facebook.com and search for “Save Elephant Foundation.” Elephants in Asia have a history of being used for logging, which generally means a life of violence and abuse. Training methods include stabbing and poking. Some of the elephants are blind from being stabbed in the eyes. It can be a long life of abuse for the elephants, who live up to 60 years. Most of the animals at the park are geriatric and have serious injuries. “Many of the elephants have significant emotional problems,” Yoffa said. “It takes a while for them to relearn how to be part of the herd and exist in their matriarchal society.”

park for a year. Harachi says she would have taken any of the dogs home, but they decided to rescue Bua Kao, who they renamed to B.K. She was most likely someone’s pet, as she is a purebred Kintamani Bali Dog. “I can’t bring an elephant home, but we could bring a dog,” Harachi said. B.K. arrived on Orcas in early January, but it took until May for her to finally feel comfortable. She was scared of everything – even a leaf on the ground caused her alarm. She also had a hard time with her new pack members: lab/ ridgeback mix Jasmine and Australian shepherd Joey.

The Elephant Nature Park During their time at the nonprofit sanctuary, they fed, bathed and cleaned up after the 35 elephants who will live out their final days in a safe environment. Volunteers from all over the world come to the park to help out. It also hosts tourists who want to interact with the animals.

Mail Schemes and Dreams by TOM WELCH

for the Orcas Island Historical Society

Early pioneer days on Orcas Island were hard in many ways, not least in the near-total absence of coin and currency. There simply was NO money available – many mainland banks had failed, and there were few if any thriving businesses in the area. One of our early settlers, “Colonel” Enoch May, was, as indicated by his (self-bestowed) title, more creative than most. Getting wind of prices paid by white men seeking “Klootchmen”, or native wives, May began acting as Middleman and Arranger with the native headmen, and made a fair amount of money. A pretty young Indian maiden matched with a much older white settler netted the good ‘Colonel’ several hundred dollars. May appeared to excel at this occupation, and spent much of his time with his native ‘brethren’. He was also reputed to operate, or work on, one of the ’liquor boats’ that operated a mile from the northern shore of Orcas. The more white-oriented pioneer setters, including James Tulloch, were opposed to miscegenation and mingling of the races, and railed against May for his involvement in selling liquor to the Indians, and in brokering native women to white men.

Discovering new opportunities available from the federal government, ‘Colonel’ May somehow convinced twelve men in Port Townsend to attest to the postal authorities that they lived on Waldron Island, were U.S. citizens, and deserved mail service. The Postal Service did a cursory inspection, and soon mail began arriving on Waldron Island. Interestingly, the mail was taken from Orcas to Waldron in a rowboat operated by none other than “Colonel’ Enoch May, Mail Contractor. He soon hired another man to make the often-dangerous row through windy President’s Channel between Orcas and Waldron Island. The second Waldron Island Postmaster, Sinclair A. MacDonald (originally from Gainesville, Ga.), discovered an even more rewarding addition to his postal duties. Someone, possibly him, sent pleading, soulful letters to churches back east purporting to come from Lucy Bean, Missionary. The letters were heartful appeals for help in seeking clothing for the poor, naked local savages her ‘mission’ was serving. Large boxes of apparel, organized by various churches back east, soon began arriving at the Waldron Post Office. Postmaster MacDonald en-

tered into a lucrative trade selling the clothing to the local Indians who frequented his place. Things went swimmingly until the day a committee arrived from the east to meet Lucy Bean, Missionary, and investigate things for the eastern churches. When the committee discovered there was no Lucy Bean, and no sign of her flourishing mission on Waldron Island to be found, they soon departed. The hithertolucrative clothing shipments stopped, and thus the first attempt at private enterprise on Waldron Island ended. At the Orcas Island Post Office in Dolphin Bay, yet another drama was played out when the Postmaster, tiring of Saturday work, wrote the Postal authorities and requested that he be allowed to close the post office that day. Smelling something other than the glue on the stamps, the authorities looked into Dolphin Bay’s mail…and discovered that it was all going to one man: the Postmaster. Under that time-honored saying ‘be careful what you ask for’, the Postmaster was successful in his request, and the office was closed on Saturdays. Unfortunately for him, it was closed every other day, too, when the Postal authorities decided to permanently close the Dolphin Bay office.

Gaylord had testified at the hearing that ending the contract and recouping the $16,000 would be difficult. In legal parlance, Gaylord said, the county had entered into a “binding contract” that was “partially executed,” giving Pictometry rights to the money and “full performance” unless it agreed to modification. On May 10, Gaylord said that Pictometry told him they have begun work on the contract, would not

return the $16,000 and expected full payment and full performance by the county. Both sides, however, agreed to continue to negotiate on possible changes in the scope and price of the contract, he said.

It’s all about the artists at Springboard

Marine Watch T

by COLLEEN SMITH ARMSTRONG Editor/Publisher

It’s all about the hand-made at Libi Geddes’ new store Springboard in Eastsound. “I was looking for items that were made sustainably and ethically and supported artists,” she said. “We live in a mass-produced world.” Geddes, pictured at right, met every designer before carrying their goods in her store. It’s also a venue for her print work and her husband Thomas Leonard’s blacksmith creations. Geddes designs pieces using an old printing press. She originally attended design school in the Bay Area. For the past 10 years, Geddes has been the manager of Roses Bakery Cafe. She left her position in October and has spent the past six months finding the perfect wares to fill her shop. She sought out small, independent craftspeople who make such items as jewelry, perfume, candles, soap and textiles. Around half a dozen local artists are

represented in Springboard and more are coming. The rest of her inventory is hand-made from businesses in Seattle and as far away as India. Geddes’ aunt Rachel Henderson owns the store Kizmet up the street from Springboard. The two traveled to India and Thailand this winter along with Rachel’s son Aleph, who owns the shop Moksha in the University District in Seattle. Geddes’ mom also has ties to Asia: as a clothing designer, she traveled to and from the country for 30 years. “My mom, Aleph and Rachel all have connections there and they helped me meet people,” she said. Geddes says she’s careful to have a separate identity from her aunt’s store that features jewelry and art from Asia. “Springboard has hand-made items

Islands A Cappella to perform Islands A Cappella presents a “Sentimental Journey” through a world of love songs May 17-19. From a hymn by Thomas Tallis to the sweet strains of “Till There Was You,” love in all its many guises will be sung and celebrated. The singers begin their spring “tour” on San Juan Island, performing at Friday Harbor Presbyterian, 6 p.m. on Friday, May 17. Saturday evening’s concert is at Lopez Community Center for the Arts, 7 p.m. Sunday evening, May 19, the concert begins at 6:30 p.m. in the music room of Rosario's Moran Mansion. A guest performance by the Orcas Boy Choir will be included in the Orcas concert. The ensemble now includes singers from San Juan, Orcas, and Lopez Islands. Angel Michaels, from San Juan, now directs the group. The program also includes settings of texts by Emily Dickinson, Robert Burns, the Persian mystic, Rumi, and the Spanish poet, Pablo Neruda. On the lighter side, there is a pop tune by Billy Joel and “Sentimental Journey.” Pianist Patty Johnson will

of beauty and utility from local artists as well as from around the world,” she said. Geddes says her 15-year-old daughter Claire Orser will be her number one employee this summer. Her son Alex Zderic is currently at college. The shop, located at 65 North Beach Road (next to the chamber of commerce) is open every day from 11 a.m. to 5 p.m., closed on Tuesday. Geddes says the name of her new endeavor is inspired by her husband’s business that is named Pickett Spring and by the meaning of the word “Springboard.” “It has momentum,” she said. “We can be a catalyst, a springboard for local artists. And the old letter press has a spring action.”

What happened to the Dall’s porpoises?

he Dall’s porpoise are “high strung,” fast swimming members of the porpoise family and are common in the North Pacific Ocean. They can reach a maximum length of just under 8 feet (2.4 m) and weigh up to 480 pounds (220 kg). Males are slightly larger and thicker than females, which reach lengths of just under 7 feet (2.1 m) long. Dall’s porpoises have a relatively small, triangular head with little or no beak and a thick, robust body. The flippers are small, round, and located forward on the body. The dorsal fin is positioned in the middle of the back, triangular in shape, and often cant, or angles, forward. The tail stock (otherwise known as the “caudal peduncle”) are exaggerated and create a pronounced hump, which is large compared to other marine mammals. Adult males have a thicker tail stock and forward projecting dorsal fin. The body is very dark gray or black in coloration

with variable contrasting white dorsal fin and tail that distinguish it from other cetacean species. These charismatic mammals are often mistaken for young orca whales because of their black and white markings. Dall’s porpoises are usually found in groups averaging between 2-20 individuals when seen here. As rapid, gregarious swimmers, they are also attracted to fast moving vessels and commonly bowride. They feed on small schooling fish (herring, and hake), mid and deep water fish (smelts), cephalopods (e.g., squid and octopus), and occasionally crabs and shrimp. Feeding usually occurs at night when their prey vertically migrate up toward the surface. Dall’s porpoises are capable of diving up to 1640 feet in order to reach their prey. They have 38-56 very small spade-shaped teeth on each jaw that are useful for grasping. Which brings me to my question. What happened to the Dall’s porpoise? In years past we could always rely on the Dall’s to come over to the boat and put on a display of bowriding to the point where sometimes I couldn’t get them to leave us alone. I’ve seen these guys bowride the resident orca whales, especially Ruffles, J-1, when he was alive. Lately the Dall’s seem to have disappeared from their regular areas around the islands. There must have been a shift in prey availability or something with Haro Strait in general to make them go somewhere else. In any case what used to be a regular occurrence is now once in awhile and met with extreme delight when we do find some. Tom and Nate Averna operate Deer Harbor Charters. They will be sharing their latest observations of what they see during their tours as well as provide news regarding the marine ecosystem here and in other parts of the world.

Craniosacral therapy uses a gentle,hands-on approach to reduce restrictions in the soft tissues that make up or influence the fluid-filled environment of the central nervous system and cranial nerves. CST is effective in reducing specific symptoms as well as improving overall health. Concussions, headaches, memory, learning & cognitive problems, balance issues, tinnitus, and stress are areas I commonly work with. I’ve trained through the Upledger Institute and been in practice since 2004.

here are numerous perks to watching Ruthie Foster perform. Two highlights are her bright smile and powerhouse voice that shakes not only the walls of any room, but moves your soul. “The power of what music can do is that it can lift you up and make you not feel alone,” she said. “I know what music does for me … hearing that voice or that song hits an optic nerve and moves you … it motivates you.” The two-time Grammy-nominated artist is coming to Eastsound on Sunday, May 19, 7:30 p.m. at the Orcas Center. Tickets are $25, $19 Orcas Center members, $11 students. The event is sponsored by the Western States Arts Federation and the Orcas LGBT Fund. Come early to the Madrona Room for Burgers + Brew before the show at 6 p.m., $15 at the door. This will be Foster’s first tour on the islands, performing on Lopez on Friday night and Friday Harbor on Saturday. “I’m so excited about being there,” she said about her upcoming show. “Everyone who comes bring someone because you’re gonna have a ‘hallelujah’ time.”

Foster’s music is a blend of soul, blues, rock, folk and gospel. “Her voice has a Bonnie Raitt-like uniqueness that makes it impossible to ignore; and her smile and charismatic stage presence make you a willing participant in whatever story she wants to weave,” said an article in Blues Revue magazine. Growing up in rural central Texas, Foster listened to the music that was available in the 1970s: a combination of the church choir and whatever was flowing out of the radio. The sounds of George Jones and Loretta Lynn helped to shape Foster at a young age. And later when she got her hands on Beatles albums she had what she calls a “truly awakening moment.” Per her grandmother’s instructions she started playing the piano and later started strumming guitar strings. Now she dabbles in the harmonica, bass and banjo in her Austin music studio. Her musical history has different roads from a tour of duty with the U.S. Navy Band to time in New York City music scene. Then she returned to her roots, bringing her sound to the Austin city stages and becoming a regular nominee at the Austin Music Awards. She has

A quick google search on Youtube will give you a taste of her covers on everything from pop to classic country. Her sultry version of Johnny Cash's “Ring of Fire,” makes you feel like you are hearing this wellknown tune for the first time. “I try to take a song and put my stamp on it,” she said. Covers like Adele’s “Set Fire to the Rain,” were a leap of faith for Foster. “We weren’t sure if it would work,” she said. “ I was really stepping out there.” The result is an intense and rich creation, which gives the song a new breath of life. Foster also likes to have the freedom to make each concert dynamic and alive. Each new performance comes with a well-thought out set list, but Foster said she rarely follows that piece of paper. Instead she feels the energy of the crowd and follows in that direction. “I really like every opportunity not to just give a concert, but to express myself in a different way,” Foster said.

available for auction are on exhibit for all to admire at the Orcas Center during the month of May. Since the venue of the benefit is surrounded by a beautiful, lush forest, the inspiration for the artwork comes from the theme of this year’s event, “A Woodland Feast.” Objects reflecting this theme are being made by students with the help of island artists and teachers. Pieces include a chair made of cedar collected from local beaches, split and worked with hand tools then fastened together with bronze ring nails made by OASIS K-8 science students with Brett McFarland, which was a study of force, pressure and inertia. Another is a “magic rotating lamp” of forest images made by Sharon Harvey’s third grade class along with Gus McMurray. Live auction items will include some highly soughtafter and rare items like

a dinner for six prepared by The Secret CookBook Club, a wooden bowl making workshop, and a table crafted by woodworker Jonathan Loop. All monies raised by this major OIEF fundraiser go specifically to support and maintain important public school programs and student scholarships. The casual, picnic-style dinner will feature barbecue brisket (in ample supply this year), pulled pork sliders, vegetarian baked beans, various salads, Abby Rueb’s famous chili-corn pudding and several desserts. Tickets are $40 per person and may be purchased at www.oief.org, at the Orcas Elementary School Office or the Orcas Chamber of Commerce Office. Free childcare will be available at the camp during the event, but parents are asked to provide dinner for their children.
