Three compete in town council race Top two advance to November general election By Steve Wehrly Journal reporter

A saw whet owl finds a helpful hand and a chance to recover at Wolf Hollow Wildlife Rehabilitation Center. The San Juan Island-based rehab center attended to, cared for and treated about 300 animals so far this year.

Covered in blood, mud and afterbirth, the two women arrived at the theater just moments before they had to go on stage. They slipped into their costumes just in the nick of time, but there was no helping the smell emanating off their bodies. For veterinarian Meg Lainson (formally known as Jessica Porter) and her assistant Judith Carter, this was just one of many fantastic

and true stories from the past. They were both dancers and loved animals, although the two interests didn’t intersect on a regular basis. But on this particular night they were called out for a difficult calf birth, which turned out to require a C-section. The end result of the adventure was a very dramatic theater entrance. “I miss it a lot,” said Carter, reminiscing about her days working with Lainson. In the early 1980s the two women were working at a domestic vet clinic, but after treating one wild bird they were thrust into a new direction. The road eventually led to the creation of Wolf Hollow Rehabilitation Center in 1983. The center’s mission is to promote the well-being of wild-

life and their habitats through the rehabilitation of injured and orphaned wildlife, public education and non-invasive research. In honor of the center’s 30 years of operation, Lainson, longtime volunteer Ross Lockwood and Wolf Hollow Education Coordinator Shona Aitken will be traversing 30 miles over the course of three days on September, 5, 6 and 7 on San Juan, Lopez and Orcas. “We want to show we are a county-wide organization. Even though we are located on San Juan Island we really are involved in the whole area,” Aitken said. The walk is to raise awareness about their 30 years of work and to raise general funds from sponsors See Wolf Hollow, Page 4

San Juan County’s Aug. 6 primary election will have only one contest, for Friday Harbor Town Council position No. 4, on the ballot. The top two primary vote-getters will advance to the November general election. The county Elections office has mailed ballots to the 1,360 Friday Harbor registered voters for the August 6 primary election. If past off-year primary election turnouts are any guide, less than half of those ballots, which must be postmarked or deposited in the voting box in front of the courthouse by Aug. 6, by 8 p.m., will be returned Felix Menjivar to be counted. Each of the five town council members is elected for a four-year term. Each is paid $400 per month and $50 per council meeting, plus paid health care insurance. The one primary contest features two first-time candidates, electrician Matt Shildneck and pianist Farhad Ghatan, takFarhad Ghatan ing on firstterm incumbent Felix Menjivar, a San Juan County Deputy Sheriff.

Twin Orcas fires deemed ‘suspicious’

Back-to-back July 19 fires follow after unresolved arson in same area, in June

Dan Hicks & THe HoT Licks

Two fires last week on Orcas Island have been labeled “suspicious in nature.” Orcas Island Fire and Rescue was dispatched to the Orcas Artworks, in Olga, and a residential structure that were both ablaze in the early morning hours of July 19. “The investigation team is doing all we can to get to the bottom of these fires and prevent anything like this from happening again,” said Orcas Fire Chief Kevin O’Brien. The incidents are under investigation by the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives, the Sheriff ’s Office, the San Juan County Fire Marshal’s Office and all three island fire departments.

Orcas man convicted of second felony DV assault to serve five months An Orcas Island man was ordered to serve five months in jail, or five months on the county work crew, on the heels of a second conviction for a domestic violence felony assault. On July 12, Michael Jason Turner, 36, was sentenced in San Juan County Superior Court to five months in jail, and ordered to pay $1,428 in fines, fees and restitution. He pleaded guilty in midJune to third-degree assault, a Class C felony that carries maximum penalties of five years in prison, a $10,000 fine, or both; however, the standard range of sentenc-

ing set by the state is 3-8 months in jail. Under the sentence handed down by Judge Don Eaton, Turner will be allowed to serve five months on the Sheriff Department's supervised work crew in lieu of jail. He can also receive 60 days credit off the amount of time served by successfully completing an in-patient substance abuse treatment program. He is slated to begin serving the sentenced Aug. 27. According to court documents, Turner admitted to assaulting a woman in midFebruary whose home he shared, and with whom he had an on-again, off-again romantic relationship over the past three years. The two were engaged at the time that a late-night heated

dispute over their relationship, and over possession of an engagement ring, erupted into a prolonged altercation at their Deer Harbor home. After the woman reportedly hit him in the face, Turner, according to court documents, retaliated by wrestling her down onto the kitchen floor and tried to yank the ring from her finger as the two struggled while he kept her pinned to the floor. Following his arrest, Turner was initially charged with second-degree assault, a Class B felony, and with one count of unlawful imprisonment. He pleaded guilty to the lesser felony offense in mid-June and the other charge was dismissed. The recent conviction for

Relay for Life: local teams join worldwide cause By Steve Wehrly Journal reporter

The ninth annual San Juan Island Relay for Life hits the Friday Harbor High School track Saturday, from 10 a.m. to 10 p.m. to fight cancer. “This will be the best ever relay,” says sponsorship chairwoman Gretchen Staehlin. Every year, more than one million people are diagnosed with one of more than 100 kinds of cancer; 12.5 million people are living with cancer, including almost 400,000 children. The U.S. Centers for Disease Control reports some 575,000 cancer-caused deaths each year, out of 2.5 million total deaths. Relay for Life was founded in 1985 in Tacoma, Wash. by Dr. Gordy Klatt, a colorectal surgeon who was diagnosed in 2012 with stomach cancer. Relay for Life events now number over 5,000 in 20 countries and have raised $4.8 billion since 1985. This year, more than one million people will participate in Relay for Life events sponsored by the American Cancer Society. In Washington state, 127 Relays will attract about 10,000 participants and volunteers and raise more than $3 million. On San Juan Island, Gretchen Staehlin, Relay's sponsorship chairwoman, hopes to match last year's 238 participants and to raise as much as $50,000 for cancer research and for more than 40 nationwide assistance programs that help people with cancer, their families and caregivers. Helping people, not statistics, motivates islanders like Staehlin, Judy Cornell, Mike Scott and more than 40 other volunteers who devote hundreds of hours to raising money for research and caregiving. The General Store & Deli,

Annual benefit switches format; former two-day event is now a single-day fundraiser Soroptimists International, Coca Cola, Brown’s, Earthbox, Herb’s Tavern, Islanders Bank and Whidbey Island Bank are participating sponsors. For the first time, the local Relay will forego the all-night hikes around the track (Dr. Klatt walked and ran for 24 hours by himself at the first Relay) for a one-day event, starting at 10 a.m. and ending about 11 p.m. After survivor and caregiver laps, as the 10 teams walk and run around the track for almost 10 hours, Relay organizers have scheduled a whole series of games and contests for participants and their children to enjoy. Geared to a “Through the Decades” theme, with prizes and gifts provided by the American Cancer Society, everyone is invited to compete for a best dressed prize for each decade from the ‘50s to the 2010s. For the “Fifties” theme, there’s a Hula Hoop Contest, followed by a “Sixties” Tie-Dying theme with a Do the Twist contest, a ‘70s Best Dance Move contest, an ‘80s “Mr. Best-Dressed Mr. Relay” contest, a “Best ‘90s Wear” contest, a “Crazy Hair 2000s” contest and “Dress for the Future” theme for the decade following 2000 and a “monster theme” for the current decade. The always popular Doughnut Eating contest is part of the Monster Theme. Honoring the high school location, there will be a “Purple Pride” dress contest at 8 p.m., followed by a “Most Relay

Gear” contest at 8:30. About 9 p.m., the Relay’s signature “Luminaria” program begins, with a speaker, followed at dusk by lighting of commemorative Luminaria bag lights, placing them around the track and a “Walk in Silence and Reflection” to honor those who have succumbed to cancer in the past year, followed by the closing ceremony. It’s a full day of activities, fun, exercise, greeting and meeting old and new friends — and contributing. And, according to tireless Relay fundraiser Mike Scott, who already produced a “Rock the Cause” fundraiser for the local Relay, “It’s a huge effort by everyone that deserves everyone’s support.”

Fair to feature ‘Drive-In’ movies, thanks to tourism fund tourism promotion; 85 percent for the San Juan Island Visitors Bureau and five percent for the Orcas, Lopez and San Juan chambers of commerce. As in past years, slightly less than half of the money, $190,000, was awarded to County parks and fairground operations and just over 20 percent, or about $85,000, will be divided among performing arts centers on San Juan, Lopez and Orcas islands. Dona Wuthnow, director of the Parks and Fair department, said lodging tax funds represent about 15 percent of the department’s operating budget. The allocations to the three performing arts centers represent about 17.5 percent of the Lopez center yearly budget, 6.25 percent of the Orcas center budget, and 5.6 percent of the San Juan Community Theatre budget. As in past years, grants were provided to historical museums on Orcas, Lopez and San Juan islands (each will received about $22,000) and to the San Juan Island Museum of Art ($5,210). Eight new projects competed for grants; five were approved for a total of $49,000 out of $124,000 in

requests. The LTAC rejected funding requests by the Friday Harbor Film Festival, arts studio tour promoters on Orcas, Lopez and San Juan islands and the Lopez Community Tennis Association to resurface the Lopez tennis court. Two projects in a new “innovative projects” category in the LTAC Master Plan were funded: the fairgrounds drive-in movie

equipment and a $6,100 grant to create an annual Orcas Island Birding Festival, beginning in May. Other first-time grants were made to the Lopez Island Conservation Corps ($13,950), a Gateway to Indian Island signage project ($2,725) and the Friday Harbor Pioneer Family Festival ($1,252). The detailed grant applications can be found at san-

The San Juan County Council approved funding recommendations for tourism facilities grants totaling $411,000 for the coming year — a 12-percent increase over the amount allocated a year ago. Perhaps the biggest surprise in the list of recommendations offered up by the Lodging Tax Advisory Committee is a $25,000 grant to purchase equipment for a drive-in movie venue at the San Juan County fairgrounds main field carnival site. The fair expects to offer movies on 23 nights between April and November, with room for about 100 cars and 50 spectators at each afterdusk movie. The drive-in, including expected concession stand sales, is projected to generate about $24,000 a year. The grants approved July 16 by the County Council are consistent with amounts recommended by the LTAC. The amount allocated for local tourism-related facilities and events totaled $366,700 for 2013. The LTAC facilities grants are about half of the lodging tax funds available for distribution by the county. The other half is used for

to keep the center working.

The past

Looking back at the start of Wolf Hollow, Carter recalls that their first “wild” patient was a great-horned owl with a wing fracture, which is a death sentence in the aviary world. She built a large cage in her yard and cared for the owl until it died five months later. “I remember every animal we euthanized, every wild animal that didn’t make it,” Carter said. “It’s real powerful the bonds you create among these creatures. I’m grateful I could do it.” After that people kept bringing them wild animals at the office located in a lot that is now part of the Best Western on San Juan Island. So for a while they were treating domestic and wild animals at the same time. In the small house and yard they treated, at one time, four baby seals, six baby raccoons and six fawns. Lainson recalls an odd sight from that time of patients from the convalescence center next door wandering through the lot. Carter tended to take birds home and would have to wake at 6 a.m. for their feedings. Around 1985 or 1986 they decided that the wildlife in their care were too voluminous for the space, which was a good decision because soon after the building was condemned. “The only thing that was insulating the place was dead rats,” Lainson said with a laugh. The 40 acres, where Wolf Hollow is now located, was initially rented for $1 and eventually was purchased. The property hosts 40 animal enclosures, including an eagle flight enclosure, seal pools, a deer enclosure, and a songbird aviary. So far this year, Wolf Hollow has treated about 300 animals including finch nestlings, fawns, raccoons, kits, bald eagles and river otters. Aitken said it takes two full-time staff, two seasonal staff, five interns and on any given day one to two volunteers to run the center during busy summer months. “Hundreds of people have helped as volunteers … it takes a lot of people to make this happen ... and will continue,” Aitken said. “The people involved have changed and the facility has grown, but our basic mission is exactly the same – rehabilitation, education and research.”

Only a few animals have suffered injuries that have left them unable to return to the wild – a rough-legged and a red-tailed hawk are used as education animals at schools and summer camps. As education coordinator, Aitken’s job is to help people learn more about local wildlife and human impacts on these animals and their habitats.

The future

As Aitken prepares for the upcoming walk, she reflects on how people’s perceptions about other species have changed over the years. “People are understanding more and more the value of wildlife,” Aitken said. “Folks who were fishing and farming in the past may have thought of wildlife as more of a nuisance. Today more people are interested in wildlife.” Although this is a positive sign, Aitken sees more interest from urban dwellers as troubling because people don’t always know the appropriate ways to interact with wild animals. For instance, cutting down a tree during nesting season may cause unnecessary songbird deaths or injuries when it is easy to cut down a tree in the fall or winter, she said. Lainson says public education is at the top of the pyramid – in order to save animals, you have to know they exist and how they can be helped. “We are one of them and they are one of us,” Lainson said.

He’s served on the Historic Preservation Review Board for five years and on the town Planning Commission for three, both of which sparked an interest in filing for election to the town council. Shildneck believes that the relationship between the town and county governments needs to be studied. “I want the town and the island to become a more unified community,” he says, referring especially to the town’s ownership of the Sutton Road transfer station and the town’s contract with the sheriff ’s office for law enforcement services.

Because of its small size and position as the entry point for most people and freight, Shildneck believes the town’s tax base results in the town being shortchanged. “It seems like the town receives “a very small amount of tax money for the impact Friday Harbor has on the island,” he said, “and pays too much to the county for services that are provided by county agencies like the Sheriff.” He cites the Brickworks project and the fire department merger as beneficial developments for both town and county, and thinks the relationship between the Port of Friday Harbor and the town is mutually beneficial. “But we can’t get locked into a period of time in the See election, Page 5

Stedman takes the helm of orca advocacy group Bruce Stedman is the new executive director of Orca Relief Citizens’ Alliance. Stedman’s appointment was announced July 16 in a press release circulated by Orca Relief. “With the whales again in decline, the work of taking pressure off this population has never been more important,” Orca Relief founder and chairman Mark Anderson said. “I have no doubt that Bruce’s remarkable background will serve us, and the whales, well.” That background includes a stint as the first-ever curator of the Friday Harbor Whale Museum, as well as 32 years working in the fields of marine and whale conservation, toxic site cleanups and in freshwater resources. Trained at Massachusetts Institute of Technology, Stedman has been director of five other organizations, taught environmental courses at Harvard, Tufts and Western Washington University, and worked with various governmental and tribal leaders, as well as private industry executives, during his career. “Recovery of the endangered Puget Sound orca is one of the most important environmental goals for the com-

ing decade, and I am truly eager to bring my ideas and energy to this task,” Stedman said. “I appreciate the support I have already received from Orca Relief Citizens Alliance members, and I look forward to working with many other people of the Pacific Northwest who care about this iconic species.” Contributed photo A stated goal of the ORCA Bruce Stedman is to create a protection zone for the Southern resident killer whales off the west side of San Juan Island, in Haro Strait. According to the advocacy group, it is the missing piece of regulatory protection that would provide the population, classified as endangered under federal law, its best chance to avoid plummeting into extinction.

Election:

Ghatan wants to create more town parking and to “find a way to divert the heavy truck traffic from Warbass Way and Harrison Street.” An accomplished pianist, Ghatan says he plans to continue his Friday morning piano playing at the Village at the Harbour if elected. When compared to his primary opponents, incumbent Felix Menjivar is a newcomer. He moved to Friday Harbor in 2002 to fill a deputy position with the Sheriff ’s Department. He was a deputy in Yakima County for four years prior to relocating to the island. He’s married and has two sons and a daughter A graduate of Burton High School in San Francisco, Menjivar attended Yakima Valley Community College, where he studied criminal

Farhad Ghatan still lives in a house on Harrison Street that he moved into when he put down roots in Friday Harbor in 1991. He’s from Seattle, where he attended Wilson High School. He graduated from the University of Washington with a degree in economics. A member of the Friday Harbor Planning Commission from ‘97—‘03, Ghatan was chairman of the commission for five years before resigning to get married in 2003. Ghatan is a past trustee of the San Juan Community Theatre, a founding member of the Arts Council, a member of the county Housing Advisory Board, a past president of the chamber of commerce and current

president of the San Juan Nature Institute. He’s also a member of Soroptimists. His two main concerns will be maintaining the town’s budget and financial situation and advancing economic growth, especially related to jobs and housing. “I want to build on the excellent management that King Fitch and Wendy Picinich provided the town,” he said. “During my 22 years as a resident of the town, I have been constantly reminded of the fine balance we have between the needs of our locals and the challenges of being the hub to the rest of the island.” “We serve the majority of the island in many ways but have only our limited tax base to keep up these heavy demands,” he continued. “As Council member, I will work towards keeping Friday Harbor utilities and taxes affordable while continuing with providing the fine services our Town is known for.”

justice. “We immediately fell in love with the natural beauty, peace and charm of this independent little town,” he said before winning election to the Town Council in 2009. “I’ve come to realize that Friday Harbor is home to a diverse, independent, passionate group of individuals,” he said in campaign materials. “My goal is to represent each and every member of this community, to listen to fellow residents, investigate their concerns and bring an analytical and common sense approach to issues as they arise.” All three candidates have run low-key primary campaigns, but each promises to ramp up their campaign visibility and activity if they finish first or second in the primary.

Record to rely on; Ghatan for council

About 15 years ago when I was on the town Planning Commission Farhad Ghatan was the chairman. I was very impressed with his understanding of complicated municipal issues and his ability to get the commission’s work done in a dignified and inclusive way. While he has been involved in many other important volunteer efforts

lately, as a pilot, chef and pianist, I’m pleased to see him wanting to get back into town government. He is an excellent choice for town council on the current primary ballot. Howard ‘Howie’ Rosenfeld Friday Harbor

Enrollment decline means less money for SJ public schools District pares expenses with roughly 35 fewer students expected this year T By Rick Thompson

he San Juan Island School District was pleased to see the beginning stages of funding improvements for K-12 education, particularly in the area of pupil transportation, materials and supplies, and learning program support. However, the legislature has a long way to go to meet its paramount duty to fully fund K-12 education as seen in the McCleary lawsuit. Additional needed revenue is estimated to be over 4 billion dollars statewide over the next two biennia. We have a long way to go to fully fund public education in Washington state. Rick Thompson State revenue enhancements did not include full day kindergarten for San Juan Island School District, nor did it include funding for educator cost-ofliving adjustments. The revenue enhancements are not enough to compensate for the impact of declining enrollment in the school district. We have projected 755 student full-time equivalents for the 2013-14 year. The trend over the next four years is expected to continue to decline, requiring careful attention to the fiscal health of the district. Please note that many projects taking place in the district such as repairs at Friday Harbor Elementary School are

funded by Capital and Technology Levy dollars the community passed by voters in 2012. Capital and Technology improvements will continue through 2016, but these dollars cannot be used for the salaries of classroom teachers, teaching support, or supplies. We will begin the planning phases for the Science Technology Engineering Math (STEM) capital gift the district received, dollars which will be designated primarily for facility improvements. On July 13, the San Juan Island School District Board of Directors passed Resolution 13-010, which adopted the following budget authorizations: n General Fund $8,757,871 n Transportation Vehicle Fund $120,000 n Capital Projects Fund $1,100,000 n Debt Service Fund $330,200 n Associated Student Body Fund $106,238 Budget highlights for 2013-14 include balanced revenues and expenditures, a responsible end fund, provision for anticipated federal sequester, and overall support for quality instructional programs.

The district took several steps to balance the budget, including operational cuts, reducing staff positions and hours, implementing furloughs, and partnering with local agencies and organizations to provide innovative and support services for students. In all, over $600,000 in cuts, savings, and new revenue was enacted for the 2013-14 budget. One impact is that Griffin Bay will be moved to district-owned space in the former sixth-grade wing at the middle school.

hange can be a time of sadness and exuberance, as we bid farewell to one chapter and open up another. Phil Hankins has joined the San Juan Island News group as a sales representative. His territory is predominantly in Anacortes, but he will be serving the Journal of the San Juan Islands, The Islands’ Weekly and the Island’s Sounder. His goal is to “help people and make a difference.” Phil is an incredible asset to our team; his upbeat personality is contagious. He has worked at the Arkansas Gazette and as a radio DJ in Hawaii during his many travels across the country. Cali Bagby has been promoted to editor and sales rep of the Islands’ Weekly on Lopez Island. This promotion comes with much excitement and responsibility, as Cali will be serving the community in full. This encompasses managing editorial content and helping the community with its advertising needs. She will continue to work as a reporter and web editor at the Islands’ Sounder. At the Sounder office, long-time employee Gail Anderson-Toombs is retiring after seven years of administration and circulation management for our three island newspapers. Her creativity, hard work, green thumb and compassion have been an integral part of islands’ newsgroup’s team. As we’ve weathered changes, Gail has been a steadfast supporter and we thank her for all of her efforts. We now welcome her replacement, Nicole Matisse Duke, into the fold. She moved to Orcas in 2011 and has been involved in a variety of projects at such places as Doe Bay and Orcas Center. Nicole holds a Master of Business Administration and has a background in personal wealth management and public relations. She lives on Orcas with her husband Dwight Duke and their white lab Daisy.

San Juan Hospice offers help for those of us of the so-called ‘sandwich’ generation

love living here. I never want to leave. Never. That’s what my heart says, at least. However, reality might dictate otherwise. We are witnessing this up close and personal: both my dad and my husband’s father are increasingly frail and keep taking unpredictable turns for the worse. We are marrying off a daughter while shuttling back and forth to care for aging family. I have heard previously about the “sandwich” stage of life, where we are caught between children and parents, all of whom need some attention. How did I get here? And whatever can I do? I watch my mom and my mother-in-law struggle to manage declining and often recalcitrant husbands, and wonder how much longer they will be able to remain in the homes that they love. And in watching and wondering about them, I can’t help but wonder about us. How in the heck are we going to stay in this community as our bodies age and our natural stubbornness intensifies? Will our children be in any position to care for us, since they live somewhere else? Are we going to have to move in our old age, giving up this incredible place we choose as home? In the good old days, younger family members cared for their elders. Usually there were folks available to do the everyday things that someone in the golden years needed help with. I think that’s why that stage of life was referred to as golden: the care needed and provided by family was worth its weight in gold. But nowadays, family members scatter in all directions in search of jobs or education or sunshine. Where do we find that care — worth its weight in gold — that won’t require vast quantities of gold to procure? Happily, San Juan Island offers a unique chance to stay at home when I approach the end of life, without undue bur-

Hospice of San Juan focuses on those with life-limiting illness and offers someone trustworthy to stay with the person we care for so that we may do errands, basic equipment needed so that we aren’t forced to stretch our budgets, a safe place to pour out the heartache of watching the decline of a family member, and help finding resources we need to care for the two sandwich generations.

an Hicks has been wrongly accused, and more than once, as he recalls. “I’ve guess I’ve been accused of havin’ some kind of southern twang,” he says over the telephone from his home in Mill Valley, located just north of the Bay Area, near the edge of California’s Muir Woods National Monument. “I don’t think so. I call it a California twang. That’s my story.” And quite a story it is. Hicks thought he had what was supposed to be a summer gig when he hooked up with a Bay Area band called the Charlatans at the age of 24 (he began playing drums at age 11). That was in 1965. The group, one of San Francisco’s earliest rock bands, would dissolve three years later. But more than four decades as a music-industry headliner later, and Hicks is still going strong, still defying pigeon holes, still irreverent as ever, and, along with his band, The Hot Licks, is headed this way. Described by friend and fellow Bay Area resident Tom Waits as “fly, sly, wily and dry” (dry, as in sense of humor) — Hicks and the Hot Licks will hit the stage of the San Juan Community Theatre as part of a nationwide summer tour, Saturday, beginning at 8 p.m. An army brat and only child, Hicks was five years old when mom and

dad packed up and moved to the Bay Area from Little Rock, Ark. And while the boy may have left the country, the country never really left the boy. You can hear a down-home country echo in many tunes that Hicks has penned over the years, like “How Can I Miss You If You Won’t Go Away” or “Canned Music”. Then again, you’ll also hear plenty of folk, jazz, bebop, pop, swing and a little gypsy influence in many of his tunes as well. In fact, keepin’ ‘em guessin’ is one of the hallmarks of Hicks’ 40-year career in the music industry. So are wry, insightful and playful lyrics, for that matter. Hicks been featured several times in Rolling Stone magazine, which includes a 1971 article entitled: “Dan Hicks: two girls, one fiddle and a white sport coat.” He’s also earned the admiration of many colleagues, as evidenced when the likes of such musicindustry heavyweights as Rickie Lee Jones, Harry Shearer, Maria Muldaur, Van Dyke Parks, Tuck and Patti, John Hammond, Ramblin’ Jack Elliott, and more, all showed up on stage at San Francisco’s Davies Symphony Hall several years back to help celebrate Hicks’ 70th birthday. The recording of that birthday bash turned into a recently released CD, “Live at Davies”, and, in addition to many signature songs, will be highlighted by Hicks and crew as part of their summer tour.

“Dan Hick s is twisting h imminently enga gin is of damn n signature mishma g, sh e known to ar every musical st yle m supremely an into songs that feel natural… ” — Seattle

New Sound System in debut

San Francisco icon Dan Hicks & The Hot Licks ‘hoppin’ folk jazz sounds will inaugurate the new, enhanced sound system at San Juan Community Theatre on Saturday, July 27. The new system was made possible by a “generous” bequest from the late Dodie Gann. Lynnwood’s Morgan Sound installed the new system, including a new set of speakers aimed at the balcony and the addition

of left and right main speakers, giving the Whittier Theatre full stereo capabilities. In addition, the Whittier’s sound board has been moved up a few feet from under the balcony so operators can listen for any needed sound adjustments. “These upgrades will really enhance our sound for our live performances and films,” said SJCT production manager John Shaller.

Exhibit: watercolor & wanderings

A

rtist, author, illustrator, instructor — San Juan Island’s Sam Connery has worn many hats during a distinguished career in a variety of professional pursuits. Add benefactor to the list. A variety of art work by Connery, who collaboration with Jeanie Burns and Jan Jameson led to the publication in 1999 of a hometown favorite, “You Know You’re an Islander When…”, will be on display in the lobby of San Juan Community Theatre through Aug. 26, as part of an exhibit entitled “Watercolor Wanderings”. Connery will donate the full-purchase price of any of the exhibited art works, which went on display July 23, to the theatre. From humble beginnings in Prince Rupert, B.C. (Sam’s father was a storekeeper at a salmon cannery on the Skeena River in the 1920s), Connery, 84, went on to forge a notable career as a writer, editor with Sunset Magazine, and as an illustrator of several children’s book during a two-year hiatus from his work at Sunset. Along with wife Emily, Connery came from California to San Juan Island in 1988, in search of peace and quiet, and then began teaching art classes at the Skagit Valley College Friday Harbor campus three years later. Connery describes his approach to painting as “casual realism”, in which he often drives to various island locales, sketch pad in tow, looking for inspiration in its many beaches, headlands, meadows, hills, meandering lanes and weather-beaten barns. Connery is also the author of several children’s books,

istory doesn’t begin with the Pig War and the 12-year joint occupation of San Juan Island by British and U.S. troops. But if it’s peace you’re after, that’s a pretty good place to start. Re-enactors from across the Pacific Northwest and Canada will converge on the parade ground of English Camp July 27-28 to celebrate the peaceful settlement of an international boundary dispute as part of 15th annual Encampment festivities. The highlight of this year’s event, like its predecessors, will be the Candlelight Ball, 8 p.m., in the English Camp barracks, featuring traditional cake and punch, music for contra dancing by Michael Cohen and the Pig War Band. Other Encampment activities include demonstrations of music, blacksmithing, spinning and weaving, sewing and cooperage and carpentry, along with the pageantry of period uniforms in scarlet and blue. The event is free. Disabled persons can call the park, 378-2240, ext. 2228/222 for information about access. For more on Encampment 2013, visit the NPS website.
