Broadband plan takes pivotal turn OPALCO in search of internet service partners By Steve Wehrly Journal reporter

The opportunity to take in the interior of the renovated Brickworks Building on Nichols Street, including two 55-foot long trusses made of fir, draws a crowd at the building’s grand opening ceremony, Saturday, in Friday Harbor’s Sunshine Alley.

Brickworks unveiled Plans include farmers’ market, events center, kitchen, and more By Scott Rasmussen Journal editor

The vision of a few became reality for the many as the freshly painted red double doors rolled back to reveal the spacious interior of the painstakingly, expertly crafted, renovated Brickworks Building in the heart of downtown Friday Harbor. From its gleaming wooden floor made of island fir, locally milled, to the two 55-foot-long trusses towering up above, each fortified with 300 shiny, massive bolts, the sight of the refurbished former home of the Friday Harbor Electric Company, drew an outpouring of

admiration from an enthusiastic crowd gathered for the building’s official Grand Opening ceremony. Even those that know it best couldn’t help but marvel at the transformation. “It’s a dream come true,” said Friday Harbor architect David Waldron, who crafted blueprints for the building’s reconstruction and renovation. “It turned out even better than I thought it would.” It didn’t come easy. Saturday’s grand opening stands as a testament of perseverance on the part of the San Juan Islands Agricultural Guild, which endured and overcame considerable obstacles in its seven-year odyssey to establish what was conceived of at first as simply a home for a year-round farmers market. Preferred locations vanished and partnerships dissolved until

the Ag Guild, backed in part by state and federal grants, purchased the last remaining industrial building in Friday Harbor, at the intersection of 150 Nichols Street and Sunshine Alley, and then began searching high and low to raise the $1.65 million that would be needed to renovate a dilapidated building and to pay off its debt. Ag Guild Treasurer Mike Wick noted that through grants, donations, large and small, and newfound financial support from the Town of Friday Harbor, that roughly 82 percent of the funding goal, $1.3 million, has been collected to date. The town in February contributed a $100,000 matching grant from its lodging tax fund. “This is a historic day that we’re all going to remember,” Friday See Unveiled, Page 4

Somewhere along the line, Orcas Power and Light Cooperative’s vision for expanded countywide high-speed internet service took a turn. Over the past year, OPALCO developed and promoted a plan to provide high-speed internet access and internetbased telephone service on a subscription basis to its membership for $75 per month. Foster Hildreth In recent weeks, however, the co-op has decided not to become an internet service provider itself. The build-out of the fiber optic infrastructure would be financed in part by a $34 million U.S. Department of Agriculture rural development loan, some of it to be repaid with a $15 monthly additional charge to co-op customers whether or not they subscribed to internet service. OPALCO announced in December it would proceed with the provision of internet service plan if half of its membership indicated support for the plan by signing up with the co-op and providing it with a pre-subscription deposit. Some 900 OPALCO members signed up for internet service and made pre-subscription deposits of $90. Those deposits were returned or credited to customer accounts when OPALCO announced the plan would not be implemented. On Wednesday, June 12, at the

2011 Special Award; Second Place: General Excellence from the Washington Newspaper Publishers Association

first of five open-house meetings on San Juan, Lopez, Shaw and Orcas islands, Assistant General Manager Foster Hildreth introduced the revised plan to an audience of about 50 people at the Grange Hall in Friday Harbor. Several people in the audience dubbed the change of course as “Plan B”. Before the meeting, a dozen islanders gathered around Hildreth to ask questions about the “new direction.” Some said they still supported the plan approved by the Board in December, others expressed satisfaction that OPALCO had scrapped that plan. Hildreth told the small group that the vision hadn’t changed, but said the co-op was moving to an See Turn, Page 4

Spring Street ‘12’: new journey begins By Steve Wehrly Journal reporter

physics teacher Chuck Schietinger, adding that nine of the 12 graduates took AP Calculus and one, Ken Zhang, scored a perfect 800 on the SAT mathematics test. “And they are solidly moral young people.” All 12 graduates are headed for four-year colleges. Collectively they have earned $350,000 in scholarships and grants from the 10 schools they plan to attend. At the June 16 commencement ceremony, hosted by San Juan Community Theatre, Academic Dean and English teacher Heather June described each graduate with a single word; composer and music teacher Grisha Krivchenia serenaded each graduate with a piano piece picked to match those words. For Pikting Izzy Cheung, who will study art and science at Portland State University, June picked “radiant”. Vanessa Thompson, who is “not into plans” but is also thinking of Portland State, was described as “intent”. And for Melissa Pinnow, heading for Evergreen State in Olympia, June picked “exuberant”.

Cynthia Burke isn’t just the founder and head chef of Cynthia’s Of Course Catering. Burke re-opened her Red Checkered Picnics food kiosk at Lime Kiln State Park Jun. 15, beginning her second summer of serving ice cream and local baked goods to bikers, hikers, and whale-watchers. Lime Kiln State Park sees 250,000 tourists and locals every year. Many ask about the historic lime kiln, even more ask when the whales swim by, and nearly everyone makes it all the way to the west side only to realize that their stomachs are grumbling and there aren’t any stores nearby. But the kiosk behind the Interpretive Center sells sandwiches, pastry puffs, baked goods, salads, fruit, chips, and ice cream. Red Checkered Picnics is the only place to get food at the park. It wasn’t easy for Burke to earn that unique spot. Initially approached by Friends of Lime Kiln Society (F.O.L.K.S.) to satisfy hungry park goers, Burke entered into a long process of establishing her business, a rare case for state parks. “It was a little daunting… It took months, and lots of fees,” Burke says of obtaining a license to operate in the park. With a refurbished trailer and an assortment of food from her catering business, Burke opened Red Checkered Picnics a year ago. It was an instant hit with locals and tourists. “When people come up to order food, we’re educated about the park, about the whales and about the environment,” Burke says. “I also buy a lot of local food and incorporate it into my menu.” Burke worked with Dennis Linden of the Friday Harbor Marine Health Organization to design an interpretive menu with short history lessons underneath each whimsically

Directors had not generated the level of support necessary to offset the risk to the cooperative’s financial structure. “We’ve learned a lot from our members over the past year,” Hildreth said about the reaction to the co-op’s broadband initiative. Hildreth pointed out that although the co-op won’t be moving forward with the proposed plan, “we’ll do what we can with our infrastructure to benefit our membership” and make best use of co-op resources by leasing the present fiberoptic network to telecommunications and internet providers. OPALCO has installed 77 miles of fiber-optic cable on most of the inhabited islands in the San Juans. This network and the corresponding equipment connects the company’s 11 major substations and is used “for monitoring and

control of power quality and equipment, voltage regulators and other distribution devices,” according to the co-op. The fiber and equipment make up what OPALCO called its “Island Network,” launched in 2001 and already leased to organizations such as San Juan County, Peace Island Medical Center, University of Washington Laboratories, and others. Hildreth explained that until OPALCO figures out the direction of future infrastructure utilization, it has instituted a “moratorium on adding any new fiber connections through Island Network.” During this period, OPALCO will negotiate with CenturyLink and other internet service providers who may want to lease access to the co-op’s infrastructure. After the meeting, Hildreth explained further in an e-mail: “Our discussions with CenturyLink are moving forward and we expect to reach completion by the end of summer. We’ve been talking to all of the local ISPs and welcome conversations with any service provider who can help

us toward our vision of better broadband for our membership.” Regarding the $34 million capital project loan commitment from the U.S. Department of Agriculture, some of which would have been used for the internet project, OPALCO stated in a press release, “The USDA loan is in place through 2016 for capital projects including infrastructure expansion. We draw funds down only after completing projects. It’s likely that we won’t use the whole amount that has been approved for this construction work plan period, and there is no penalty for not drawing down funds.” OPALCO took the pulse of the meeting through a series of charts and tables asking attendees about their attitudes to present internet service and internet speed. Most responses favored faster internet service and “more aggressive investment” by OPALCO in internet service. After the meeting, Hildreth summed up his conclusions: “We were pleased to hear such strong member support for our vision.”

Alleged knife-wielding teen faces felony assault

A 17-year-old San Juan Island boy accused of wielding a knife and attacking a rival in an altercation over a girl is slated to stand trial in late July on four criminal charges, including two felonies. The boy pleaded not guilty in San Juan County Juvenile May 29 to assault with a deadly weapon, a Class B felony, and to attempted second-degree assault, a Class C felony, and to two misdemeanors as well, unlawful display of a weapon and criminal trespass. He faces maximum penalties of confinement until age 21 if convicted of a felony assault offense. The Journal does not identified by name minors involved in criminal cases, unless named by local law enforcement officials. According to court documents, prosecutors claim the 17-year-old first brandished and then wielded a knife when he attacked another boy during a brief altercation involving a group of teens at the home of a girl with whom the boy was fond of. The girl, who was hosting a bonfire party with a group of friends, had repeatedly told the boy earlier over the phone that he was not welcome, according to court documents. The 17-year-old and a friend reportedly were intoxicated when they arrived at the girl’s home. Following an argument that erupted into a brief altercation, in which no

one was injured, the two boys drove away. Those at the party reportedly called the Sheriff ’s office to warn that the two were out on the road and intoxicated.

Prosectors also filed a pair of third-degree rape charges as an alternative to either Class A felony offense. The lesser felony offense carries maximum penalties of five years in prison, a $10,000 fine, or both. Anderson was released under court orders pending trial. According to court documents, the two 15-year-old girls, as well as being under the age of consent, were incapacitated by a combination of alcohol and marijuana at the time prosecutors claim that Anderson forced himself upon both, at separate times that same night, and sexually assaulted each in the haze of a late-night alcohol-fueled party in Eastsound in mid-October.

He pleaded innocent to the felony offense and six months later the case was dismissed after prosecutors, according to court documents, informed the court that the alleged victim, fearful of confrontational court proceedings, could no longer participate and that they could not proceed without her testimony. As with the 2010 case, Anderson is represented by attorney Charles Arndt of the Coupeville-based law firm of Arndt and Walker. Arndt is a former San Juan County public defender. — Scott Rasmussen

Opinion Letters to the Editor

Who gets the call over healthcare ?

Island Hospital is currently looking to affiliate with a larger medical institution to take advantage of the economies of scale involving purchasing, electronic medical records, insurance reimbursement, and specialty referrals. I support such an association. However, I am quite uncomfortable contemplating Island Hospital aligning itself with any religiously controlled medical institution. I do not believe that public taxes should support any religion in pursuit of its ministry, whether it is charitable, educational, or delivering health care to the public. What should be a bright line of separation between church and state is becoming blurred in our state. As a firm believer in the Constitutions of Washington State and the United States, I see a looming conflict that may require judicial resolution. It’s been suggested that affiliations between taxpayer supported medical delivery institutions and those operated by religions organizations could be violations of the Washington State Constitution (Article I, Section 11, as amended in 1957 and 1993). Although not an attorney, my interpretation of that article and section permits only the employment of a chaplain, in “correctional, and mental institutions, or by a county’s or public hospital district’s hospi-

tal, health care facility, or hospice”, not persons with fidelity to an institution implementing church policies in the choice of services or manner of public health care delivery. In Washington state, no bishop should be able to impose religious doctrine upon a patient and their physician in any matters which are in full compliance with state and federal medical legislation, or wellestablished secular best medical practices. The opportunities for secular medical institutions to affiliate with other than religious dominated medical institutions are rapidly becoming fewer. As a patient I am very concerned about my end of life decisions being extinguished by religious policy which does not respect my fully legal wishes. San Olson Lopez Island

non-religiously affiliated hospitals for over 30 years, I saw exactly the same type of care being delivered at both types of institutions. I also observed that Catholic hospitals are willing to treat all individuals, including the most vulnerable and those without the ability to pay. It is true that Catholic hospitals do not provide abortion. Many other nonreligious hospitals do not provide it either; only 4 percent of abortions are performed in hospitals. Advance directives are honored at Catholic hospitals. Physician-assisted sui-

cide, which is not an option under the advance directive, is not offered. However no such suicides have been performed in any hospital in Washington over the past three years. In communities where the sole hospital provider is a Catholic hospital, you are likely to find the same range of services that would be available if the hospital were not Catholic. It is community size, not religious orientation that is the primary determinant of services available. We need to focus not on just a few procedures, but to work together to make sure that our communities have the broadest possible range of safe, high quality and needed services.

New face, Fresh start?

Cracks in cornerstone of democracy


ily veteran Bob Jean yields office in 10 days to the new guy, Mike Thomas. Jean performed his “interim” job admirably, keeping the county ship-of-state on even keel and a steady course while managing the transition from six council members to three, and from an independent executive to a councildependent manager. Admirable job, Bob. Take a well-deserved vacation. But somewhat like the ceremonies that have occupied our schools in recent days, people want to know whether Jean’s graduation into retirement and Thomas’s commencement of a new job will mean just a change of faces or a “fresh start” for local government. The Journal votes for “fresh start.” Our advice: trust your fellow islanders, but “verify”. Just the size difference means a lot: Enumclaw is 3.9 square miles with about 11,000 people, San Juan County is 621 square miles with 15,000 people. Enumclaw is on the way to the Mount Rainier vacation destination; our county is a destination, as well as a National Monument. The economies are different, the recreation base is different, the diversity of the community is different, the schools are different. You are coming here at an opportune moment, Mr. Thomas. Real estate sales are picking up and the summer tourist season looks promising. The budget will still be tight, but nothing like the gloom-and-doom of the recent years. We know your house on Decatur makes you one of us already and that the community attributes that we all share will make your new encounters even better than your prior ones. No doubt you’ll have a detailed to-do list, from both the council and your predecessor, but the best place to learn about this county is getting out and around and talking to people. During these first few weeks, see if you can’t squeeze a half-day here and there to check out each inhabited island - and maybe one or two of the uninhabited islands, like Sucia. The more familiar you are with the lay of the land, the more comfortable you’ll be making decisions about our far-flung archipelago. Welcome to the Monument, Mike.

Secret surveillance at home, abroad? Oath of office, 4th amendment ignored


Submitted by FH Friends of the Constitution

he Bill of Rights of the United States Constitution serves to limit and define the powers of government, to remind all members of the government that they serve the citizens, and that the citizens hold the right to restrain government. Article II, Section 1, of the Constitution specifies the oath of office for the President: "I (name) do solemnly swear (or affirm) that I will faithfully execute the office of President of the United States, and will to the best of my ability, preserve, protect, and defend the Constitution of the United States." Members of Congress, Federal Judges, and Federal employees also take an oath that includes the words, “I solemnly swear that I will support and protect the Constitution of the United States…” This nation’s history demonstrates a healthy tension between the government and the governed surrounding the Bill of Rights. Until recently, the Bill of Rights has prevailed, although our history contains shameful abuses that we accept as excusable aberrations of “American Exceptionalism”. However, the abuses of the administrations of former President George W. Bush and current President Barrack Obama are so blatant and serious, and we citizens are so complacent and silent, that our democracy is compromised and weakened as never before. The commitments of both the federal government and “We the People” to the continuation of a democratic government is now a reasonable subject for debate. Egregious examples of recent unconstitutional actions include: The lies that were the foundations of this Nation’s voluntary wars against Iraq, Afghanistan, and Libya, and our current eagerness to become involved in Syria; “legal” laws including the Authorization for Use of Military Force that President Obama interprets to wage a worldwide, indefinite, “war on terrorism”; extra-judicial drone attacks inside sovereign nations to murder both foreign nationals and Americans citizens based on a secret “kill list”; warrantless wiretapping of American citizens; the collection of “any tangible thing” under the Patriot Act; and the National Defense Authorization Act that allows the military to arrest and detain American citizens indefinitely without charge or trial. Recently we learned that the government is conducting secret, massive, unconstitutional surveillance in the United States and globally. Included are telephone records and access to all private data stored by Microsoft, AOL, Skype, Google, Apple and Facebook, including email, video chats, photos, files transfers and more. Secret spying is a blatant violation of the Fourth Amendment: “The right of the people to be secure in their persons, houses, papers, and effects, against unreasonable searches and seizures, shall not be violated, and no Warrants shall issue, but upon probable cause, supported by Oath or affirmation, and particularly describing the

place to be searched, and the persons or things to be seized”. President Obama, and the complicit members of Congress, have violated their oaths of office. Irrespective of one’s political views, the constitutional abuses of President Obama and the complicity of the Congress cannot be excused. Although spoken in a different context, the uplifting inaugural words of former President Franklin D. Roosevelt in 1933 are appropriate today: “So, first of all, let me assert my firm belief that the only thing we have to fear is fear itself— nameless, unreasoning, unjustified terror which paralyzes needed efforts to convert retreat into advance.” — Editor’s note: Friday Harbor Friends of the Constitution meet every other month; for info, contact Roger DeRoos, president of FHFC steering committee, 378-6323.

ormally, the business of caring for stray, lost or abandoned animals is no a laughing matter. But a break from the norm and a healthy dose of hilarity promises to be just what the doctor ordered — make that veterinarian — at the 9th annual Wags to Riches fundraiser, Saturday, June 29. And what’s the buzz about a helicopter and $2,500 cash prize? Well, more on that in a moment. Sponsored by Friday Harbor Animal Protection Society, Wags to Riches is the biggest benefit of the year for the APS-managed Friday Harbor Animal Shelter, where on any given day as many as 25 cats and kittens, and 3-4 dogs, are provided with safe haven, nourishment, medical treatment and a helping, caring, loving hand. Anywhere between 60-75 cats and kittens are adopted year-in and year-out through the animal shelter, where each animal is treated and given medical clearance prior to adoption. Adoptions of dogs and puppies number about 35-40 a year, collectively. The shelter remains a “no-kill” facility for any adoptable animal With as many as 150 animals a year to care for, or more, that’s serious stuff, with an overhead of about $150,000 a year. A little humor offers a nice change of pace. So, with three nationally renowned comedians set to share

the spotlight of the San Juan Community Theatre stage, this year’s event is entitled, most suitably, as “Comedy to the Rescue”. It stars Elayne Boozler, founder of Tails of Joy, an animal rescue and advocacy foundation, who’s making a second appearance at Wags to Riches, awardwinning standup comic Emo Philips, and veteran late-night talk show comedian Wendy Liebman, whose “Taller on T.V.” special debuted on Showtime in 2012. That’s not all, not by a long shot. In addition to rib-tickling performances by three veteran comedians, admission to the show includes gourmet hors d’oeuvres and tasty beverages as well as great raffles and a live auction. The event also features an online silent auction that begins - goes live - Friday, June 21, a week before Comedy to the Rescue hits the stage (for access to the silent auction, go online at, Oh, and the helicopter and cash prize? An added attraction to this year’s fundraiser is Wags to Riches “Howlin-One Balldrop” and raffle drawing. At about noon on the day of the event, Dane Armstrong will be hovering over a yet-to-be-determined green at San Juan Golf & Country at about 200 feet, with a cargo of golf balls purchased as part of the Wags to Riches raffle, $10 a ball, no limit on entry, in the belly of his aircraft. The owner of the first ball to roll n What: Wags To Riches, “Comedy into the hole will win $2,500 to the Rescue”, APS fundraiser cash, and additional prizes n Who: Elayne Boozler, Emo await for those with the five Philips, Wendy Liebman closest balls to the hole (winners will be announced at the n Where: San Juan Community Comedy to the Rescue show).

Around Town Soccer clinics for kids — for free

Coaches from the British Soccer Camp program will lead the program. The clinics run from 9 a.m. to 10 a.m., ages three to five; 10 a.m. to 11:30 a.m., 6-8 yrs; and 11:30 a.m. to 1:00 p.m., 9-12. “We started these clinics last summer and they were a great hit.” said FANS president Cathy Kromer. “They’re also a fun preview

of the British Soccer Camps that take place later this summer.” No registration is necessary for the clinics; however, parents should arrive 15 minutes early to sign waivers. Island Rec is taking registrations for its British Soccer camps in July and Tetra Brazil soccer camps in August, at


of the San Juans. In years past, People for Puget Sound had been the main face of the Orca Sing, but the group has since dissolved due to its founder retiring. “We want to keep the tradition alive, but this year we’re shifting from being ‘plugged’ to ‘unplugged’, so we’re just looking for local acoustic musicians,” Corra says. “It’s really just about keeping it local and low-key. We don’t need to amplify it.” The event also coincides with the centennial of the Washington State Parks. F.O.L.K.S. already celebrated the parks’ 100th birthday - March 19 - with the San Juan Island Trails Association, but the most

exciting events have yet to come. July will feature the Lighthouse Fly-by, allowing people to gather around the Lime Kiln State Park lighthouse while a photographer takes aerial pictures from a plane circling overhead. And in August, F.O.L.K.S. is preparing to fire up (literally) the historic lime kiln. “Bring s’mores!” Corra says.

Island youth can work on soccer skills during free drop-in clinics on Saturday, June 22, at the Friday Harbor Elementary School fields. Families and Neighbors Support Island Rec and Challenger Sports are sponsoring the clinics, aimed at children ages three to 12.

Continued from page 1 Corra has been to every Orca Sing since 2007, but this is the first year that F.O.L.K.S. will be organizing the event, along with the Whale Museum and Friends

WASHINGTON STATE DEPARTMENT OF TRANSPORTATION FERRIES DIVISION REQUEST FOR PROPOSALS FRIDAY HARBOR, LOPEZ ISLAND AND ORCAS ISLAND FERRY TERMINAL AGENT CONTRACTS The Washington State Department of Transportation Ferries Division, operating as Washington State Ferries (hereinafter called "WSF"), requests proposals for the following described Contracts: WSF is seeking contracted Terminal Agents (hereinafter called the "Agents") for WSF’s Friday Harbor, Lopez Island and Orcas Island Ferry Terminals (hereinafter called the "Terminal" or “Terminals”). WSF is issuing this RFP to provide an opportunity for new, competitive proposals for each Terminal Agent Contract. Qualifying parties may submit proposals to operate any or all of the Terminals. (Note that the Shaw Island Ferry Terminal Agent Contract is not within the scope of this RFP due to a prior Contract assignment to the current Agent.) The proposed Terminal Agent Contracts shall be for an initial term of approximately five (5) years, commencing September 1, 2013 and expiring on September 30, 2018. WSF shall have the sole authority to offer an extension of the Contracts for two additional five (5) year terms. The current contracted Terminal Agents may submit proposals for the new Terminal Agent Contracts. If a new Terminal Agent is selected at any location, the current Terminal Agent will train the new Agent to ensure a smooth transition in Terminal operations. WSF’s objective is to enter into Terminal Agent Contracts with Agents that will (i) be solely responsible for the daily management and operation of the Terminals; and (ii) provide courteous and efficient service to WSF customers, with all such activities coordinated with WSF. At all times, the Terminal Agents shall manage and operate the Terminals as independent contractors, not as employees of WSF or the State of Washington. An optional Pre-Proposal Conference will be held at 11:00 a.m. on Tuesday, June 25, 2013, at WSF’s offices in downtown Seattle (see address below). Contact WSF’s Tim McGuigan at 206.515.3601 to sign up for the Pre-Proposal Conference.

Chronic Pain? Medical Marijuana


Additionally, WSF believes that a visit to the Terminals is crucial to preparing a proposal under this RFP. Therefore, WSF will conduct an optional tour of each Terminal on Thursday, June 27, 2013. Contact WSF’s Tim McGuigan at 206.515.3601 for meeting locations and time. WSF will not grant any contractual relief for failure to attend the Pre-Proposal Conference and/or Terminal tours. The closing date for receipt of proposals is 2:00 p.m. on Wednesday, July 10, 2013 or as otherwise amended under the RFP. Proposals received after that time will be rejected. Unless all proposals are rejected, WSF intends to award the Terminal Agent Contracts to the responsive and responsible proposer(s) who offer the most advantageous proposals to WSF based on the evaluation criteria established for the Contracts. On or after June 14, 2013, interested parties may obtain the RFP package from WSF’s Legal Services & Contracts Department as shown below, for the non-refundable fee of $50.00. Informational copies of the RFP package will be on file after that date at various plan centers, WSDOT Support Services / Seattle SBA and at WSF. WSF will also post the RFP package on the following web site: business/contracts/.

WSF assumes no obligation of any kind for expenses incurred by a respondent to this Notice or the RFP package.
