County readies $53M budget
New digs in town for US Customs By Steve Wehrly Journal reporter
By Steve Wehrly Journal reporter
Everything you want to know about San Juan County government and the proposed 2014 budget can be found in 153 pages of the county preliminary budget document prepared for the County Council by Auditor Milene Henley. These documents, which will be revised when the County Council approves the budget after a series of public hearings over the next several weeks, can be found at http:// sanjuanco.com/Budget2014/ docs/2014Preliminar y_ Budget_Book_Complete.pdf. Everything, that is, except the “Non-General Fund” budget, which totals $32,987,817 - more than half of the total county budget of $53,326,315. The “NonGeneral Fund” accounts apply to certain dedicated funds which have their own sources of revenue, including dedicated taxes, grants from various sources, intergovernmental transfers, fees and other sources. These receipts and expenditures will be included in the final budget documents. The preliminary budget summary, which will be presented to the council on Monday and Tuesday, Nov. 4 and 5, by Auditor Henley and County Manager Mike Thomas, shows a General Fund total of $20.4 See BUDGET, Page 5

Unlicensed, illegally moored and poorly maintained, nearly a dozen smaller-sized docks and floats will be hauled out of Friday Harbor and out of Orcas Island’s Deer Harbor beginning in midNovember. The floating structures, in addition to being unauthorized, will be removed in an effort to improve navigation and ensure environmental protection, and before they
U.S. Customs and Border Patrol will move into office space in the heart of downtown Friday Harbor sometime next year. Gordy Petersen, owner of Friday Harbor Center, at the intersection of First and Spring streets, and CBP public information officer Chief Thomas Schreiber each confirmed that a lease has been signed and that CBP would relocate from its office at the Port of Friday Harbor “in 2014.” Petersen anticipates CBP will be operating in the street-level office space by “mid-summer.” The lease, which the General Services Administration says was awarded “after a full and open competition” in August, 2013, is for ten years, with an option for an additional five years. The 10-year total value for rentals, tenant improvements, building services and six parking spaces is $2,124,095.20, according to Stephanie Kenitzer of the U.S. General Services Administration. The details of the layout and materials was not publicly disclosed “for security reasons” by the GSA, which is the property management agency

lsland engineer plots lunar orbit NASA’s Lunar At mosphere and Dust Environment Explorer was able to get from the launching pad, Sept. 6, to its lunar commissioning orbit five weeks later, Oct. 13, thanks in large part to Friday Harbor’s Mike Loucks. O w n e r of Friday Harbor-based Space Exploration Engineering Corporation, Loucks designed and helped implement the trajectory used to send the Environment Explorer into orbit. He designed the trans-lunar and lunar orbit capture portion of LADEE’s trajectory. He was on-site at the NASA/Ames control center from launch on Sept 6, through the final lunar orbit insertion maneuver on Oct. 13, and served as trajectory lead and flight dynamics team member during that time. Loucks also designed the trajectories for the Interstellar Boundary Explorer Mission, launched in 2008, and the Orbview-II spacecraft, which launched in 1997.
The Space Exploration Engineering Corporation was founded in 1995 in Boulder, Colo. Loucks moved the company and his family to Friday Harbor in 2001. The progress of the LADEE spacecraft along its trajectory was chronicled by Loucks and fellow “astro-gator” John Carrico during the trans-lunar portion of the mission on the “Astrogator’s Guild” blog (www.astrogatorsguild. com). The two were featured in an Oct. 8 article in the Christian Science Monitor, “Moon mission LADEE arrives after an ‘amazingly precise’ looping flight,” written by Liz Fuller-Wright and appearing in the online version of the publication. LADEE (pronounced like “laddie”) is a robotic mission designed to orbit the moon and to gather detailed information about lunar atmosphere, conditions near the surface and environmental influences on lunar dust. It also carries an innovative lunar laser communication demonstration instrument, which is designed to transmit data at a rate of 622 megabits per second, about five times the current state-of-the-art from lunar distances. LADEE is managed by NASA’s Ames Research Center in Mountain View, Calif. After the commissioning phase of the mission, which lasts one month, LADEE will be lowered to its science orbit with an average altitude below 50 km (31 miles). LADEE will spend three months at this lower altitude, and will then be directed to lunar impact after it runs out of fuel.

Project to begin in January; info session Wednesday, 1 p.m.
The Town of Friday Harbor will begin replacing portions of its aging water and sewer main on Spring Street starting in January. The project is expected to be completed by the end of March. Details of the project will be aired at an informational meeting, Wednesday, beginning at 1 p.m., at town hall. The pending project is intended to prevent another break in the water main like the one that happened a year ago in September. A new water main was installed from First to Second streets following the break but that project proved disruptive to many and raised concerns about muddy water entering the storm drains, according to town officials. The town also plans to replace sewer mains and to remedy as many known deficiencies as possible in

O’Conner said the port has had no communication from CBP about terminating or renewing the current lease. Friday Harbor Center was built by Petersen in 2004, after fire leveled most of the east side of First St., between Spring and East streets. Peterson said total rebuild of the block, which comprises 24,000 square feet of commercial space, cost roughly $3.8 million. Windermere Realty occupied the space until 2010 at a lease rate “in the range of $8,000 to $10,000 per month,” according to Windermere’s Gary Franklin. Petersen declined to identify the amount that CBP would pay, although he termed the figure mentioned above as “incorrect.” Howard Crowell and Rebecca Hughes opened Howard’s Sell It Again in the space in early 2011, at a reduced rent with the understanding that they might be displaced if a full-paying tenant agreed to lease the space. Crowell said they were pleased with the location and the support of both visitors and locals, but he “understood completely” that their tenancy would be terminated if Petersen found a long-term, full-paying tenant. O’Conner said it’s unclear whether CBP intends to retain office space at the port. She said the port has been discussing with CBP its requirements for space at the airport. In addition to inspections and security duties in Friday Harbor, Customs and Border Patrol agents are assigned to Roche Harbor to check and clear boats arriving from Canada, and operate a small kiosk at the Friday Harbor marina for boat and seaplane arrivals.
for the U.S. Government. “This is good for the town and good for the nation,” Petersen said. “These people are our neighbors. They are protecting our community and people should respect that.” Once occupied by Windermere Realty and currently the home of Howard’s Sell it Again, the 4,500 square foot space will be used to house Customs and Border Patrol agents now working out of leased space at the Port. Although Schreiber would not disclose specific information about the functions or number of employees of the Friday Harbor office, he did send an e-mail describing “field operations” of the CPB, an agency of the Department of Homeland Security: “CBP officers perform the full range of inspection, passenger and cargo analysis, examination and law enforcement activities relating to revenue and trade, seizure of contraband, interdiction of agricultural pests and diseases and admissibility of persons at 331 ports of entry located at airports, sea ports and land borders.” Which of these functions, if any, will be performed at the new First and Spring streets office was not disclosed. Friday Harbor is one of 67 U.S. ports of entry managed by the Seattle Field Office of U.S. Customs and Border Patrol. CBP officers have operated out of rented space at the Port of Friday Harbor since 1978. That space, about 660 square feet, is rented to CBP for $1,473 per month under a lease that expires in May, 2014, according to port Director Continued from page 1 Marilyn O’Conner. environment.

In cases in which an owner has been identified, Treadwell said DNR will seek reimbursement for costs of removal and disposal of the object, its anchoring system and related debris.

Continued from page 1 million. Most of that amount comes from real estate and sales taxes, although various grants and transfers are also included in the General Fund, as they are in the non-general fund totals. The preliminary budget for 2014 represents a decrease of about $1 million from the all-funds estimated 2013 total expenditures, although final 2013 expenditures won’t be available for several months. Because tax and grant receipts will vary through 2014, some supplemental and emergency appropriations may still be made by the council as the year progresses. The preliminary budget document reviews all county departments and agencies and includes extensive documentation of departmental functions, personnel and activities. For instance, County Council projected expenditures of about $493,000 is about $24,000 less than 2013, possibly reflecting the recent charter amend-

OPINION Letters to the Editor
But why in the center of town?
At a recent Friday Harbor Town Council meeting, I was astounded to hear a brief statement from a council member that the U.S. Homeland Security Agency is planning to open a large office in the former Windermere building at the corner of First and Spring streets. The reaction in the council chambers was as though someone had thrown a dead fish on the table. P.U. I have been very impressed with the council’s recent approach to building up the town economy: a long term redesign of Sunshine Alley; closer cooperation with the Port to make the ferry dock entrance to the town more pedestrian friendly; the welcoming banners and ever more beautiful hanging baskets around town. But a big Homeland Security office in the very center of town? I hope the town will now put some questions on the table and bring the community together to seek some answers: Why does Homeland Security need to expand their base of operations here? Will there be holding cells; armed and uniformed officials guarding the doors on that corner? Why must this be at the very center of the Friday Harbor tourist area? I will look forward to the council involving all islanders soon in a public discussion of the many the issues surrounding this possibility.

Cartoon misses mark on farm tax
The cartoon on page 6 of the Oct. 30 edition of the Journal is an inaccurate representation of the Assessor’s office’s efforts to maintain a fair and equitable system of property taxation. This office has been and continues to be supportive of farmers and farmland owners. However, when enrolled farmland is not in compliance with program requirements, taxes are unfairly shifted to other property owners. Island farmers that are commercially farming land as defined under Washington’s Open Space Taxation Act have no reason to fear that they will lose their special tax status. A more appropriate and accurate label on the cartoon farmer would be “Hobby Farms”. CHARLES ZALMANEK SJC Assessor

My hat’s off to those who help
Two more raves for fabulous people in our community. Rick Campbell pulled me out of a very precarious position… with genius, sensitivity, kindness and patience. My red truck got stuck in a ditch and I tried myself to get it out, making it worse. I called AAA and All Seasons Towing arrived. Scott, the helper, knew he needed the expert, and Rick came on his white shining horse. He deserves to be celebrated. I watched Linda, at Vic’s Drive-In, talk to a little child, putting his name on “the order,” making him feel special, and every time I go she is genuinely making everyone feel special, happy and important. Kevin’s big smile definitely adds to the mix. Not only is the food good, Linda and Kevin make you feel good. Happy Day. FRANCINE HANSEN San Juan Island

Move is a poor fit for Friday Harbor
The Oct. 15, 2013 edition of The Island Guardian and the Oct. 30, 2013 San Juan Journal (New lease puts U.S. Customs office in heart of downtown Friday Harbor) announce Customs is leasing the large commercial Spring Street storefront (previously the Windermere Real Estate office) in downtown Friday Harbor complete with “holding cells, state of the art communication with major remodeling and interior construction…” The landlord of the property retorts, “This is good for the town and good for the nation.

and customs laws including the critical benefits of safety and security they provide. However, placement of this essential, necessary and quasi-reclusive federal agency requiring some level of operational concealment and security in a commercial corridor of a small town dependent on tourism and positive image seems irrational. Furthermore, doing so will require every resident and tourist to pass it each and every time they visit or return home. Frankly, who would want to shop, dine or browse shops in an area next to a federal office with a jail? This federal agency is our new “Welcome Center”? Worse yet, I imagine refitting a decade old plus commercial building to standards of a modern law enforcement facility is immense. Security is necessary for protection of everyone.

As I See It
Try home for Superior service gets short shrift favorites in medical air transport the holidays Playing decisions could put islanders in jeopardy
hopping near home, away from the crowds, is the surest way to make this the best holiday season ever. We’re well aware that for many islanders, holiday shopping means hours trekking off-island in search of the deepest discount for the perfect gift for a spouse, sibling or grandchild who probably already has, or will soon have, more than enough “perfect presents” to last a lifetime. We suggest foregoing that trek and spending your time—and money—at any of our island shops that are sure to welcome you with a big smile, a unique selection of goods at reasonable prices, and possibly even some holiday music you haven’t heard too many times before. While we’re making suggestions, perhaps you local merchants will make the extra effort to provide that big smile, and convenient extra shopping hours and the homey decorations that people love. And don’t forget a few “on sale” tags to show people you appreciate their patronage. The dollars we’ll spend on holiday gifts here will really make a difference to island merchants. Give local shopkeepers, and yourself, a holiday season to remember. Shop here.

Special to the Journal
ny of us can be felled by a stroke, accident, coronary or other life-threatening emergency in which our potential survival diminishes with each second spent en route to urgent medical care. That’s why we have a nation full of medievac helicopter services—because seconds count. When you live on an island the stakes are even higher. As Harborview’s Chief of Surgery, Dr. Ron Maier, stated last year, author Richard Bach would not have survived his 2012 plane crash on San Juan Island without Airlift Northwest’s immediate helicopter response with a flying emergency room equipped with the two highly-trained nurses who kept him alive until landing on Harborview’s helipad. Decades back only single-engine aircraft were available in a medical emergency to try to reach Seattle or Bellingham in time. But the delays and the trauma of transfers in and out of ambulances, to and from the single-engine aircraft and the airports on each end took a heavy toll, and no one will ever know exactly how many didn’t make it because the time en route was just too great. That’s why we needed a 24-hour standby helicopter airevac service, and the one we finally got—Airlift Northwest—is world class. A few years ago, the creation of Island Air Ambulance in conjunction with San Juan EMS and the hospital district seemed to assure that an airport-to-airport backup would always be available for those frustrating times when not even the best equipped helicopter can make it through the weather. But there was never any question that singleengine airplanes were grossly inferior to both well-equipped choppers, and the twin engine anti-iced turbo commander Airlift has standing by as well (a fixed wing flying emergency room San Juan EMS apparently refuses to use). Somewhere along the way, however—whether motivated by empire building or something more worrisome—the individuals promoting Island Air Ambulance decided to stop being a legitimate backup and instead arranged to divert to themselves as much of Airlift Northwest’s primary emergency runs as they could grab. In the process, they’ve dumped a significant amount of public money into a structurally inferior service in a selfcongratulatory effort that has included grossly misleading
propaganda pieces passing for Op/eds in this paper, Op/ eds falsely and absurdly suggesting their backup service is the same, or even superior to Airlift. In addition, these folks have carefully omitted the fact that Island Air Ambulance charges your insurance company as much if not more than Airlift Northwest ($12,500 by their own listing with the trade association CAMTS). Where, exactly, is that river of money going? The very volume of emergency airlifts now routinely assigned by San Juan EMS to Island Air Ambulance in what smells very much like a sweetheart deal clearly shows an inordinate bias with no accountability: almost 2/3rds are flown in Island Air’s lone single-engine Cessna 207. Further, now that this dirty little secret is out, there are island residents coming forward indignantly to relate how they were told that Airlift was not available, when in fact a helicopter and crew were ready to fly. Clearly this highly suspicious systemic diversion to an inferior service is not in the best interests of the people of this county. In fact, everyone who lives in or spends time in the San Juans needs to pay serious attention to the consequences of the grotesque overgrowth and overuse of Island Air Ambulance for this one reason alone: if the number of evacuations assigned to Airlift continues at the present level, their 24-hour Bellingham helicopter base - the one that can send us a helicopter in a life-critical 20 minutes may be closed. Lives, clearly, will be lost when helicopters have to dispatch from Seattle instead. San Juan County government must get a grip on this situation, and fast. Island Air Ambulance needs to return to the honorable position of emergency backup; those skewing airlift decisions to a single-engine aircraft need to be forced to adopt clear, honest, transparent, publicly reviewable criteria for making their selections; and those who have been purposefully misrepresenting this regrettable diminishment of public safety must fully explain their motivation. Without such safeguards, we simply can’t trust that a decision to bypass Airlift Northwest is being made in the patient’s best interests.

Advocate to air insight at Home Trust meeting Affordable housing advocate Greg Winter will be the featured speaker at the 12th Annual Meeting of the San Juan Community Home Trust, Thursday, Nov. 14, at the Grange Hall in Friday Harbor. The director of the Bellingham-based Opportunity Council's Whatcom Homeless Service Center, Winter will discuss local and regional housing affordability strategies, focusing on examples from Whatcom and Skagit counties, as part of the presentation. In working with the Family Resources Centers on San Juan, Orcas and Lopez islands, Winter has gained an onthe-ground awareness of issues surrounding affordable housing in San Juan County. He previously managed the 2011 county Prosperity Project, an assessment of community affordable housing needs.
Winter recently helped lead the campaign in support of a “Home Fund levy” dedicated to affordable housing in Bellingham, which was approved by voters last year and for which, in part, he received a “Friend of Housing Award” at the Washington State Affordable Housing Conference in Spokane, in October. In addition to the presentation by Winter, the Home Trust 12th annual Greg Winter meeting will include a complimentary pizza and salad dinner. A business meeting and election of board members will follow dinner and guest speaker. Admission is free; RSVP by telephone, 3785541, or by email, firstname.lastname@example.org to reserve a spot.
Odlin wetland planting party draws a crowd
The group consisted of Lopez and San Juan islanders, members of the San Juan Island Conservation Corps and a number of longtime Odlin campers from the mainland. In preparation for the planting party, the Washington Conservation Corps helped prepare the site by installing 2,300 feet of fencing to prevent deer from foraging on the newly
planted shrubs and trees, assisting also in putting another 150 plants in the ground in a different, more remote, wetland area. The park’s wetland project is latest in a series improvements, which include: upgrades to the boat ramp, new mooring buoys, new day-use restroom, watersystem improvements and replacement of the picnic shelter.

istory isn’t always about the past. In fact, museums of all shapes, sizes and stripes have a long history of their own of turning to the latest innovations in order to refresh the stories, events and artifacts of days gone by, and to capture an ever-wandering imagination of an ever-changing audience. San Juan Island’s very own historical museum is no exception. And it’s following in the footsteps of that well-worn path of reinvention with its latest endeavor, the creation of a Museum of History
and Industry, designed as an interactive educational facility and a showcase for four of the island’s “core” industries of yesteryear: farming, fishing, logging and lime kilns. “Even though we focus on the past, anymore it’s all about being interactive and getting people involved,” museum Director Kevin Loftus said. “We really want to make it cutting edge and keep up with current technologies.” Housed all under one roof, within the walls of the renovated barn on the museum grounds, each industry will be individually featured in its own wing, an exhibit all its own, and highlighted by a mixture of integrated murals, photographs, videos, artifacts and interactive, hands-on displays that bring to life the sights, sounds and stories of those former cornerstones of island commerce. In the entrance of the barn will an expansive atrium, with a large three-dimensional topographical map at its centerpiece, which identifies locations and developments of each of the four industries. Its walls will be lined near the ceiling with photographs of various islanders and the room will also feature audio handsets with recordings of local oral histories narrated by island actors. The atrium will be completed by the end of autumn, Loftus said. The museum and its parent group, the San Juan Island Historical Society, recently launched a fundraising drive — with a $200,000 goal — to help finance the project. But plans for the Museum of Industry have been in the works for quite awhile, Loftus added. Backed by grants by the state historical society, the museum has already invested $168,000 in renovating, enlarging and improving the barn over the past six years. It now also has its own electrical supply. Plans call for the four exhibits to be completed in phases: fishing by late spring, farming in the fall, logging by spring of 2015, with the Lime exhibit following later that autumn. Although it may sound ambitious, Loftus said the project is well planned and the stage is set for all the pieces to fall into place. “We’ve never really done anything of this scope,” he said. “But it’s not just a new idea. It’s going to work.” For more information, or to make a donation, contact San Juan Historical Museum, 3783949, or www. sjmuseum.org.

At the heart of Jon Robin Baitz’s award-winning drama, “Other Desert Cities,” is a dark family secret. Some would prefer to keep that painful memory hidden, while others are poised to share it with the world. The tug-of-war of the Wyeth family will take center stage in Island Stage Left’s fall production of “Other Desert Cities”, a finalist for the 2012 Pulitzer Prize for Drama and winner of the Outstanding New Off-Broadway Play in 2011. To temper the family conflict, Baitz infuses the drama with a healthy dose of wit and humor and the intriguing combination has earned the play sweeping critical acclaim: “superbly crafted”, “funny, cutting and illuminating”, “smart, entertaining”; the praise goes on. Staged within Friday Harbor fairground’s Marie Boe Building, reconfigured for the production, “Other Desert Cities” opens Friday, Nov. 15, for a six-week run, with evening performances Thursdays, Fridays and Saturdays, 7:30 p.m., and Sunday matinees, 4 p.m. (Wednesday, Nov. 27 in lieu of Thanksgiving).

Leading 20-12 at the half, the Wolverines running game made little progress against the Lyncs hefty defensive front line over the final two quarters of play. The Lyncs struck twice in the air with a pair of touchdown passes after the break to take the lead and seal the victory, avenging a loss at home to the Wolverines earlier in the season.
Friday Harbor ended the 2013 season at 3-6 overall, in Richard Ledford’s first year back as head coach of the Wolverines.
