Superintendent Kline Straight from the senator announces retirement The Islands’ Sounder profiles Kevin Ranker and hears about his latest bills

by COLLEEN SMITH ARMSTRONG Editor/Publisher

Kevin Ranker is a surfer, family man, gourmet cook, environmentalist and avid runner – and he also happens to be a state senator. His jovial, laid-back attitude has been a breath of fresh air among his fellow politicians. He is the same person at his home on Orcas Island as he is discussing carbon tax bills in Olympia. “I like to laugh but I’m also very deliberate,” he said. “Everything I do, I think through. Even when I make foolish decisions, I’ve thought it through.” Ranker, who is a Democrat, says there are three issues that define him as a politician: equality (for the LGBT community, for education), choice (health care access, family planning, safe abortion options) and the environment. “Marriage equality was my proudest moment ever,” he said. “I think it has impacted more people positively than anything else.” Ranker expects to continue defending Referendum 74, the marriage equality act, which was approved by voters last year. In February 2012, Governor Christine Gregoire signed the marriage bill. It was set to take effect that June, but opponents submit-

ted enough signatures to suspend the bill and require a state-wide vote. In November, it was approved by voters – overwhelmingly so in San Juan County. “I was naive to think we were done when we passed the equality act two years ago,” Ranker said. “I anticipate having to defend equality and a woman’s right to choose. It’s going to be a constant battle.” Ranker’s father is gay, and while he was raised by his mother, his two dads have been a big part of his life. “My mom and my dad are still best friends,” he said. Ranker’s dad was married to his long-time partner in New York at the age of 71. When the legislature is in session, Ranker lives in Olympia. After a long day, he goes to the 24-hour market and picks out ingredients for a three-course meal. “I usually don’t sit down to eat until midnight, but it’s how I relax,” Ranker said. He runs at least four days a week, works 16 hours days and gets very little sleep. And that is exactly how he likes it. “Sleep is over-rated,” he laughs. Ranker sponsors no more than 10 bills per session. In 2014, the legislative session is set to run from January to April, but Ranker says it often goes several months past the expected date. His wife Tina and daughter Elsa, who is in kindergarten, live full-time on Orcas Island. “When the senate is in session, it is very difficult to maintain commonality with your family,” Ranker said. “When I get back to Orcas, it’s my sanctuary.” Because the senate only pays $40,000 a year, he also consults institutions and CEOs on climate, energy and ocean policy and strategic development.

Upcoming 2014 bills Ranker is excited about advancing “bold” climate strategies in the 2014 Legislative Session based on his year’s research as a member of the Governor’s Climate Legislative Executive Workgroup. He assures that there will be climate legislation. “I believe that dealing with climate is one of the most critical issues we are facing,” he said. “We are currently researching models

Orcas Schools Superintendent Barbara Kline has announced she will be retiring at the end of this school year. “It has been an amazing experience to work with great staff members, students, parents and an overwhelmingly supportive community,” she said. Kline has been an educator for more than 40 years. For the past 24 years, she has been at the Orcas School District. “This is a good time to retire because it is good timing for me and because the district is in a good place,” she said. “We have two very excellent principals, an experienced school board, and a bond project entering the building phase before the end of this year.” Board member Janet Brownell said there were many times when she would drive past the school after working hours and see Kline’s light on in her office. She calls her a “relentless champion” of students and public education. “I have been with the board long enough to have worked with four superintendents,” Brownell said. “Barbara Kline was principal of the high school when Glenn Harris left and the district was in a financial crisis. She offered to become a part-time superintendent so that the district could save money ... She helped us become fiscally stronger, helped us pass bonds and levies and brought two new extraordinary principals to the district.” Kathy Page is principal of kindergarten to sixth grade and Kyle Freeman is principal of seventh to 12th grade. The board will discuss the search for a new superintendent at a special meeting on Thursday, Nov. 7 at 4 p.m. in the school library. Kline says there is a lot to do before her last day on June 30. The school is implementing a new

evaluation system for both teachers and principals, working on the bond and facilities and completing educational work on the common core. “Planning the transition to a new superintendent will take time,” Kline said. “I know that the Orcas School Board members will want to carefully consider the qualities and experiences the district needs in their next superintendent. They will also need time to plan the selection process and determine how they will involve staff, parents and community members.”

A group of eight people from Whidbey Island piled into their cars at the crack of dawn to catch the 7:35 a.m. ferry from Anacortes to Orcas Island on Oct. 28 to meet with Kyle Freeman, Madie Murray, Mandy Randolph, Kathy Page and Barbara Kline to learn about our Farm to Cafeteria Program. The Whidbey group was lead by Cary Peterson

who coordinates the Good Cheer Food Bank Garden and is helping the South Whidbey School District launch a School Garden to Cafeteria program. They arrived at the school at 9 a.m., took a tour of the expanded school garden, then convened in the Home Ec room (which will be the new cafeteria kitchen area when rebuilt) to talk with our group about all of the facets of the Orcas Island F2C Program, including

the implementation of all scratch-cooked meals, the integration of our Farm to Classroom classes for grades K-8 and the positive effect all of that has had on our students and the community. We all then adjourned to enjoy a delicious lunch consisting of salmon burgers with home-made dill sauce, coleslaw, fresh salad, fresh baked potato fries and Orcas apple sauce in the school cafeteria. “Everything we learned was really inspiring for all of us, especially how important the garden and food curriculum is,” Cary said in her thank you email. “We were also impressed by the kitchen staff and lunch. You are a model that we will be using to help us launch our program." The Orcas Island Farm to Cafeteria Program has been visited several times by people interested in either developing or expanding their farm to school programs – the most recent being a group from Marin Country Day School in Corte Madera, Calif. in August of this year.

It was a beautiful fall day, crisp and sunny, and perfect timing for transplanting trees. The 2 -to 3-foot Sitka Spruce were nurtured in the Orcas Island School Garden this past year, but a spruce can grow up to 70 feet tall, so they needed to move. Wetlands consultant Mindy Kayl and Farm to Classroom teacher Mandy Randolph thought the Mt. Baker Mitigation

site would be a perfect home for the 20 young trees. With support from San Juan County Public Works and the high school administration, four Orcas teens helped transplant the young spruce. They have mapped the approximate locations of the planted trees and hope that future club members will be able to visit the site and measure the growth of the trees. The trees were initially donated by John Evans after Arbor Day in 2012.

Food co-op to be reality Seen & heard by CALI BAGBY Staff reporter

Access to organic and health food. Learning more about local agriculture. A place to gather as a community. These are all reasons why a group of islanders have been working for months to form the Orcas Food Co-op located in the former Homegrown market. “We basically want it to be a smaller version of the Skagit Valley Co-op,” said Lisa Byers, the co-op board president and the executive director of OPAL. “We want it to be full service, have bulk purchasing and be customer oriented.” The member-owned co-op will provide local and organic, non-gmo food as well as other goods and services. “The Orcas food co-op will improve islanders lives by establishing a strong local agricultural distribution network and securing a non-gmo and organic food source for our community while providing jobs and educational resources,” said Kyle Ater, owner of the

“Our shared vision is that the co-op will be part of the food culture on the island – not just a facility.” — Ken Katz, vice president of the co-op board

Homegrown Market. The co-op has already reached 250 founding members in the first three weeks of the membership drive. Now that the co-op has a base of members, their next goals are to raise pledge donations and sign the building lease. The board wants to raise at least $200,000 in pledges from individuals for a loan before they sign the lease, which is projected to occur on Nov. 15. After those two pieces are completed they will begin renovations. They hope to be opening in the spring. “Our shared vision is that the co-op will be part of the food culture on the island – not just a facility,” said Ken

Katz, vice president of the board. “It’s a community gathering place where people want to support local agriculture,” added Byers. The co-op board plans to renovate the space and make changes to the layout before opening its doors. The space will be reconfigured, and there will be new equipment and a new deli location. Another aspect of the co-op will be education, providing a meeting space and a link to the community to local foods and the people that create those goods. Co-op general manager Learner Limbach said that working directly with farmers will be an important aspect of the co-op. “We want to be partnering with farmers and other organizations county wide,” he added. There are several ways to get involved. To become a member or volunteer, email info@orcasfoodcoop.com. Memberships are available for purchase online at www. orcasfoodcoop.com.

Halloween fun in Eastsound

Celebrate Indian Island Left: Bay pipefish, a native seahorse, are declining at Indian Island.

Indian Island volunteers will make their annual report on the health of Indian Island and celebrate five years of community monitoring and stewardship on Thursday, Nov. 21 from 5:30 to 7:30 p.m. at Orcas Center. Enjoy a slideshow by Kwiáht director Russel Barsh, displays by local students, a musical medley by Sharon Abreu and Mike Hurwicz, a light savory buffet by the Orcas Store, desserts made by community scientists and opportunities to contribute to the conservation of Indian Island as a donor or a volunteer. Admission is free. This year volunteers invite you to adopt one of Indian Island’s rare and charming fish, birds, or marine invertebrates as

your own special New Year’s project. For a modest donation, you will receive a button featuring your choice of Indian Island “foster child,” and personal updates on its status and current research. For a little more, there will be a number of exclusive naturalist talks and picnics and recognition in future Indian Island publications and events. Islanders can also support days of interpretive services on Indian Island for just $75 per day via the Orcas Island Community Foundation’s new Orcas Opportunities Catalog 2013, available online at http://www.oicf. us/catalog. “Never has the need for community participation been greater,” says Indian Island program coordinator Kelly Rose.

Summer visitors have been increasing since the Indian Island program began in 2009. In addition to monitoring marine life, wildflowers, and birds, volunteers personally greeted over 4,100 visitors to the island in 2013. Volunteers also built a “driftwood trail,” distributed field guides, supervised school groups, rescued stranded wildlife, and helped prevent visitors from being stranded by flood tides. The driftwood trail has been an unqualified success,

Why we celebrate Veterans Day

I

t’s been an American tradition since 1954, and its message transcends time: honor those who have served in the armed forces and those who have died in battle. Regardless of which political side of a conflict one stands, the well being of our veterans should be everyone’s concern. Even if we feel the purpose of a war may have been wrong, the bottom line is: our armed services did the dirty work. Veterans Day is on Monday, Nov. 11 and there are two events for islanders to pay tribute to those who have served. Orcas Island Elementary is holding an appreciation ceremony and breakfast on Nov. 8 at 8:30 a.m. Veterans are asked to arrive in the cafeteria that morning for an assembly followed by a breakfast in their honor. If possible, organizers request that veterans come in uniform or wear something that signifies their branch of service in the military for students to see. A group photo will be taken after the assembly. RSVP to 376-2286 or kpage@orcas.k12.wa.us The American Legion will hold its annual Veterans Day Service on Nov. 11 at 11 a.m. at the post home at 793 Crescent Beach Dr. The Sons of the American Legion will serve refreshments immediately following the event. There are a total of 607,501 veterans living in Washington state, • Assembly at Orcas according to the United States Elementary on Nov. 8 Department of Veteran Affairs.

Local events for veterans

According to a report by ABC news, 2,333,972 American military personnel had been deployed to Iraq, Afghanistan or both, as of 2011. Of that total, 1,353, 627 have since left the military. According to the Defense Manpower Data Center, nearly half of those who have served in Iraq or Afghanistan have been deployed more than once. Locally, there is help for the 2,500 veterans who live in the islands. The San Juan County Veterans’ Advisory Board is an outreach program that provides emergency services to veterans in need, their children, widows, widowers and/or orphans. A small portion of county tax funds are set aside for this purpose, and the board has helped several San Juan County veterans with rent, medical, dental, food, and transportation costs and counseling services. Applications for assistance are available through the county website (http://sanjuanco.com/committees/veterans), from senior centers, sheriffs’ stations, libraries, and county legislative offices, or at 370-7632. If you know of a veteran who is struggling, tell him/her about the advisory board. If you are related to a veteran who is in need of counseling, there is help. And if you are a veteran yourself, don’t hesitate to pick up the phone and get a little back from the country for whom you gave so much.

Guest columns San Juan EMS is making Orcas Fire’s budget explained decisions for wrong reasons

by KEVIN O’BRIEN Orcas Fire Chief

The cost of maintaining the effective emergency response system we have on Orcas Island is a significant challenge. To deal with this challenge, Orcas Island Fire and Rescue is meeting to discuss detailed budget analysis and appropriate expenditure of tax payer dollars. The exceptionally high level of services that islanders have come to expect costs money, and OIFR is committed to providing those services in the most fiscally responsible manner possible. Orcas Island Fire and Rescue exists to serve you. Everything we do is devoted to preserving the lives, property, and environment of this great island. Over the course of time, our scope of operations has expanded to include all hazards response: EMS, fire, rescue, car accidents, chemical spills, child births, strokes, broken bones, electrical problems, overdoses, missing persons, and weather related emergencies. Additionally, we reach out to youth through programs including fire prevention, school visits, Firewise, CPR/First Aid classes, free smoke detectors, and car seat loaners. Simply said, when you ask for our help, we are there. Our EMS program is

376-3833

robust with excellent cardiac arrest survival rates, and our ability to reduce fire loss is proficient. We continue to grow our services to meet increasing community needs. Our newest program, Orcas Cares, is a partnership with several other island organizations, aimed at helping seniors and disabled people in need of assistance but not requiring immediate EMS attention. Our new Strategic Plan reflects our endeavor to provide the best services possible in an “island appropriate” manner. The Strategic Plan was developed by a team of 16 community members from varying backgrounds and interests. We conducted 17 outreach groups and asked the community what they wanted from OIFR. We found out that islanders appreciate and want us to continue the top notch emergency services we provide today. They also want us to be fiscally responsible, transparent, and to keep the community well-informed of all our operations. The 2014 Preliminary Budget accurately reflects the goals of our Strategic Plan and mirrors what we do today. The budget funds the 67 emergency response volunteers who take time away from families and jobs to help their neighbors. OIFR employs eleven staff members including our excellent paramedics who respond to alarms, support the volunteers, and care for the community’s seven fire stations and equipment while providing the careful stewardship of your tax dollars. Without the great gift of service our volunteers provide, our budget would likely double in order to

fund paid responders. The expenditure budget of $1,712,441 is a realistic reflection of our operations today and includes some operational changes that were made in 2013 after the approval of the 2013 budget. $107,012 of the budget includes an assistant chief paramedic, an increase in time for a finance officer, and an increase in time for a volunteer coordinator/ public information officer. There are four primary factors that influence our budget: 1. An increase in requests for our services (OIFR call volume has increased 27.2 percent since 2011) 2. A need to staff appropriately to serve our community 3. The increasing requirements of current laws, standards, and business practices 4. The stewardship of seven fire stations and 22 pieces of rolling stock Similar to the budgets of families and businesses on the island, the costs of providing emergency services has risen. Since 2000, the Seattle, Tacoma, Bremerton Consumer Price Index has risen 37 percent (this does not include the cost of doing business on Orcas). Added to that increase is the time required to train recruit responders, now a remarkable 174 hours, a 129 percent increase from 1998. And the cost to outfit that recruit has increased a staggering 257 percent, from $1121 in 1998 to $4000 today, but critical in order to keep our volunteers safe. Orcas Island Fire and Rescue will continue to provide the high quality assistance our community requires, thanks to our dedicated volunteers, staff, and your support.

San Juan EMS Chief Jim Cole's statement flies in the face of the reality in the Sounder’s story “Airlift Northwest cuts ties with Island Air Ambulance” that ran last week. Neither he nor Larry Wall nor anyone else associated with Island EMS is making decisions “... on the basis of what’s best for the patient...” when a patient is pushed into an inferior form of emergency transport involving two ambulances and a fixed wing aircraft versus transport directly to the helipad of a hospital. Here’s a real fact: There is an obvious and provable bias in the decisions that have been and are being made on a daily basis by Chief Cole and others in San Juan EMS to shunt San Juan County residents off to Island Air’s structurally inferior air transportation services. At times, Airlift Northwest has been told to turn back because EMS officials have decreed that a transportee will use Island Air instead, and at other times people have been told that Airlift was not available when the record indicates they indeed were. No one is impugning the safety dedication of Island Air Ambulance or the services of Island Air Inc. that they utilize, but those services are seriously inferior to Airlift in every significant way, in particular: One available non-pressurized, non-de-iced, Cessna 207, which means a singleengine, fixed wing aircraft flying over very cold waters, airport to airport rather than Airlift's top-of-theline transportation directly

to the hospital attended by two highly trained nurses (versus one). There is no comparison. Island Air Ambulance is a useful emergency backup, but never should be the primary means of emergency medical evacuation when Airlift's superior capabilities are available. But the questions here revolve around the massive shunting of emergency airlifts to Island Air over the past year and the self-congratulatory empire building that is going on at county expense to build up this fixed wing service and fraudulently bill it as an equivalent. Why, for instance, has there been a heavy weight bias toward Island Air and a partial sandbagging of Airlift? Is the motivation monetary? Have island residents been fully informed that Island Air Ambulance bills insurance companies the same amount (around $12,000, and in some cases more) than the charges Airlift bills? Where, exactly, is that money going? Why have scarce San Juan County funds been squandered to create an inferior parallel service now being touted by one official, Larry Wall, as equal when under no cir-

cumstances is that correct? (Wall's two recent advertisements passing as OpEds in the Journal clearly show a propensity for massive misrepresentation of the quality and nature of the services provided, but do nothing to explain why public funds are being poured into this parallel service). Some very serious questions of propriety and legitimacy are now being raised and must be answered publicly and fully. If this were a battle between two profit-making companies, no such questions would be appropriate. But this involves a vital public utility class service, and continuation of this bias at the cost of millions in county funds raises the possibility that Airlift's services, if too little used, may have to be truncated with respect to the Bellingham helicopter base, which would immediately add life-losing time to an emergency transport. I, for one, absolutely refuse to use anyone but Airlift for myself or my family, and am highly suspicious of what has been “built” here and why. Author of “Why Hospitals Should Fly,” Nance is an aviation analyst for ABC world News, and a San Juan resident.

It is important to stress that now is the time for action, not more discussion of whether it’s real or it’s human-caused – we must put that aside. We are the first generation to truly see the impacts of climate change, but unfortunately, we are likely the last that will have the opportunity to do anything about it.” He is also hopeful about a bill called “Pay It Forward” for students who can’t

afford to attend college. The program would pay college education to those who qualify. Once these students have graduated and have careers, 3 percent of their income would go back to the program. “We have to make sure higher education is available to everyone,” Ranker said. “There are certain areas in Washington state where the number of jobs and the number of educated people who can fill those jobs don’t match up.

Unlicensed, shabby docks tagged for removal

Looking ahead On a local level, Ranker is troubled by some of the hostility shown in county elections, particularly with the charter amendment and council elections last year. “It’s become less respectful and more personal,” he said. “I sure hope we don’t see it more at the county level ... party lines shouldn’t matter, it’s about respecting each other as community members.” The senator is planning to run for his third term in office in 2016. “I feel like I am making a difference and it feels really good,” Ranker said. “I have core values that represent my community – and if that means I don’t get re-elected, so what? That is not why I am here.”

CLARIFICATION The family of Lillian Janet Sharninghouse, whose obituary ran in the Sounder last week, would like the public to know that she went by Janet, not Lillian.

One of the derelict structures in Deer Harbor that will be removed starting in mid-November. Unlicensed, illegally moored and poorly maintained smaller-sized docks and floats will be hauled out of Friday Harbor and out of Orcas Island's Deer Harbor beginning in midNovember. Nearly a dozen of these floating structures, in addition to being unauthorized, will be removed in an effort to improve navigation and ensure environmental protection before they become damaged or unhinged by winter storms, according to Brenda Treadwell of the state Department of Natural Resources. “These floating docks are in various states of disrepair, and some are likely to break apart in a significant storm,” said Treadwell, DNR aquatic resources

manager for San Juan County. “In addition, many of these structures contain old tires, exposed foam and other hazards that can harm the aquatic environment. In other cases, the floats are used as storage for anything from gas cans to a bath tub.” She says removing these broken bits of docks and dilapidated floats will also make navigation easier for boaters and provide more area for short-term vessel moorage. A total of 11 floating structures of assorted sizes have been tagged for removal; five in Friday Harbor's Shipwreck Cove and three in Deer Harbor. Treadwell said the DNR consulted with San Juan County Sheriff 's Department and

The department began the process of taking ownership of the unauthorized floats and docks Sept. 26, posting notices of pending seizure of the property. It followed up with a second notice Oct. 16, and will take custody of each Nov. 15, unless someone comes forward before then to claim ownership and remove the floating object and anchors. 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.

Mobile dental clinic coming A new gathering place

The Mobile Dental Clinic from Medical Teams International will be returning to Orcas on Nov. 15 and 16. The clinic will provide care to qualifying community members. Services provided during the clinic are free of charge, thanks to the donation of skills and resources by our local dentists and hygienists. Applications are available online at www. oicf.us, or can be picked up at the Food Bank, the public library, Orcas Family Connections or the County Health office at the Senior Center. Applications will be reviewed and prioritized based on severity of dental needs and pain. Completed applications can be dropped off in the Dental Box outside the Public Library. If you have questions regarding the

application or available services, contact Barbara Ehrmantraut, 376-3395. The dental clinic is funded and coordinated through the Orcas Island Community Foundation. Both Dr. Ivans and Dr. Bailey and staff members are volunteering to provide care. Jim Biddick is coordinating volunteers to provide check-in support and can be reached at 376-2488. The Orcas Community Church is hosting the van and housing for the van drivers has been contributed by the Outlook Inn. Breakfast snacks and lunch for the volunteers are needed on both days; if you are interested in contributing, contact the Orcas Island Community Foundation, 3766423.

Special funding for Funhouse The Funhouse Commons was recently chosen as a recipient of the 4 percent Friday Community Shopping Day program offered by the Skagit Valley Food Co-op in Mount Vernon. The co-op based its selection on the Funhouse’s local

community service, especially its focus on and services for youth. Recipient organizations receive 4 percent of the day’s gross receipts at the Skagit Valley Food Co-op. The Funhouse will use the funds it receives to purchase nutritional snacks

for kids participating in its After School, Ninja Camp and teen programs. The Funhouse Commons’ Community Shopping Day is scheduled for Friday, July 25, 2014. Call Krista at the Funhouse, 376-7177 or email krista@thefunhouse. org for more details.

The task of monitoring contaminants for the Indian Island program has been given to Orcas students. Kwiáht is working with Laura Tidwell’s Orcas Middle School students on a novel approach to monitoring lubricating oils and other automotive contaminants in Eastsound street runoff. Bundles of polypropylene fabric are hung in storm drains for several weeks, where they absorb any floating oils. When they are removed, the oils are rinsed off and measured in a spectrophotometer. Plans are also underway to expand volunteers’ monitoring of algal blooms in East Sound and to use other plankton species as indicators of toxic stress, hypoxia, and changes in temperature and acidity. Kwiáht is seeking funds to equip local schools to participate in an expanded plankton survey. In March 2013, President Obama signed an Executive Order creating the San

Juan Islands National Monument, which includes Indian Island. Kwiáht and Orcas volunteers are working on a formal agreement to continue the local stewardship of Indian Island and perhaps other small, uninhabited islands that are now part of the monument such as Skull Island and Twin Rocks. One expression of local control will be an interpretive sign overlooking Indian Island on Main Street across from the Outlook Inn. The sign is a collaboration of the National Monument, the San Juan County Land Bank and Kwiáht funded by the county’s Lodging Tax, illustrated by Orcas fifthgrade students. A mockup will be displayed at the event on Nov. 21 with blank spaces for suggesting the messaging. Learn more about Eastsound’s “window on the sea” by joining Kwiáht and the Indian Island Health Observatory on Nov. 21.

Barsh says. Wildflowers on most of the island are already recovering. At the end of the 2013 season, the Indian Island program and Orcas Island Youth Conservation Corps carefully removed a truckload of English ivy, Himalayan blackberry and other invasive plants by hand. Seasonal restrictions to protect nesting seabirds were successful in 2012, but when restrictions were eased in June 2013 so that visitors could watch nests from a high point on the island, black oystercatchers lost all their eggs to predators and did not lay another set. “We’re still looking for the right balance of public enjoyment and seabird survival,” Rose says. Another concern is a four-year decline in Bay pipefish, which Barsh says may be due to an outbreak of a parasitic copepod that attaches itself to gills. “At this stage, it’s more likely that pipefish are dying from parasites than from contaminants, but toxics can depress the immune system of fish and leave them less able to survive parasitism,” he said. Other indicators of ecosystem health, such as eelgrass density, have remained steady, however.

April and Clyde Duke on the stage at Random Howse on North Beach Road in Eastsound.

by COLLEEN SMITH ARMSTRONG Editor/Publisher

With its vast, shiny wood floors, cozy fireplace and intimate stage setting, Random Howse is primed to be an entertainment hot spot. “Our vision is that it will be a gathering place to enjoy the talent of those around us,” said April Duke, who purchased the building with her husband Clyde. The space, which was built in 2004, has traditionally been used for restaurants – most recently it was home to Agave. Now it is renamed and underwent a major cleaning and received new paint and a brick wall behind the stage. “My first attraction to this was that the building is under-utilized,” Clyde said.

Random Howse will be a place for private occasions like baby showers and weddings and public happenings like live music, dancing and fundraisers. A full bar and snacks will be provided during events. “With all the bars and restaurants around, we want to offer something unique – and not compete with them,” April said. Their first function was a night of tango this summer. April says it was “wholesome fun” with people ranging in age from 12 to 70. Starting Nov. 19, Kevin Gregus and his wife Jowl will be making Thai food on Tuesdays from 5 to 9 p.m. Diners can sit down or order take-away. “There will be traditional items like Pad Thai, curries, and veggie and meat stir fries – it’s going to be

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 located 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 that CBP will be operating in the street-level office space by “mid-summer.” “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 retail 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 email describing “field operations” of the CBP, 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 Protection. 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 of Friday Harbor Director Marilyn O’Conner. O’Conner said the port has had no communication from CBP about terminating or renewing the current lease, which, she added, the port is willing to do. Friday Harbor Center was built by Petersen in 2004, after one of the most destructive fires in town history leveled most of the east side of First St., between Spring and East Streets. Peterson said the total rebuilding of the block, which comprises 24,000 square feet of commercial space, costs 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, who believes that commercial lease rates were “probably” still in that range for the property. 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 its requirements for space at the airport with CBP. 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 operates a small kiosk at the Friday Harbor marina for boat and seaplane arrivals.

Excessive exposure to the Islands’ Sounder has been linked to increased community engagement and overall personal awesomeness.

Owner of Friday Harborbased 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.

Corey Harris brings his blues sound to Orcas

by CALI BAGBY Staff reporter

Fifteen years ago, Kara O’Toole heard Corey Harris on the radio, and she has yet to forget that day. “There are those moments when you hear something and hear the artist speak and something about it rings your bell,” said O’Toole, who is the director of Orcas Center. For O’Toole, that something was a blues sound complimented by elements of reggae and traditional West African beats. Her father was a hardcore blues fan, so O’Toole grew up listening to the roots of rock and roll. “To hear the reverence for those founding blues men from someone my age and creating an eclectic blend … he is the real deal,” she said. You can hear the guitar-

ist, vocalist, songwriter and band leader at Orcas Center on Friday, Nov. 8 at 7:30 p.m. Before the concert, starting at 6 p.m., there will be Burgers and Brew from the Lower Tavern in the Madrona Room. Harris, pictured above, has performed throughout North America, Europe, Brazil, The Caribbean, West Africa, Asia, Australia and New Zealand. He has performed, recorded, and toured with musicians such as BB King, Dave Matthews Band, Tracy Chapman and Natalie Merchant. In his early 20s, Harris lived in Cameroon, West Africa for a year, which according to his website, had a profound effect on his later work. He has recorded many old songs of the blues tradition while also creating an

original vision of the blues by adding influences from reggae, soul, rock and West African music.  “I would describe him as a deep musician,” O’Toole said. In 2003 Harris was a featured artist and narrator of the Martin Scorcese film “Feel Like Going Home,” which traced the evolution of blues from West Africa to the southern U.S. Just a few years later, Harris made news again when he was awarded a $500,000 MacArthur Fellowship – commonly referred to as a “genius award.” “It’s a dream come true,” said O’Toole about Harris coming to Orcas. Tickets are $25, $19 Orcas Center members and $11 students at 376-ACT1 or www.orcascenter.org.

Last week in Viking sports Lady Vikings volleyball team is heading to district play-offs by MARTY ZIER Sports contributor

Volleyball The Viking girls volleyball team (8-9) advanced past the post season 2B District Playoffs in Mt. Vernon after losing to Darrington but taking a win against Concrete last Friday, In the first game, Orcas faced an uphill battle against Darrington (133) after three consecutive regular season losses to the Loggers. The Vikings still found themselves searching for a way to win against the second place team in the league after losing three straight games; 25-6, 25-16 and 25-14. Facing playoff elimination in the second game, the Vikings met the Concrete Lions (4-12) for the third time this season, a team Orcas had successfully handled in their last two regular season matches. Orcas played to form and won the first game 26-16,

the second game 25-20 and went on to sweep the Lions 3-0, earning a position in the next round of the playoffs. On Nov. 6, the Vikings travel to Cross Point Academy in Bremerton for the next round of the 2B Bi District playoffs with their goal set on the State Tournament in Yakima in mid-November.

Football

The Viking football team (3-6) lost under the lights to the Lions (8-1) in the second to last regular season game in Concrete Friday night. Orcas faced an efficient Lion tight formation double wing offense for the first time this season, forcing the Viking defenders to search for the ball and fight the misdirection. By the end of the first quarter, the Lions had slipped by the Viking defense for three rushing touchdowns. Abandoning an ineffective run, the Vikings hit the

air and scored on a 56-yard yard touchdown pass from quarterback Miles Harlow to receiver Gage Harlow, ending the first quarter down 20-7. The Lions, utilizing three different rushers, rolled through the Vikings defense for four more touchdowns in the second quarter while the Viking’s offense struggled. The game appeared to be a blowout with the halftime score 41-7 and no spark apparent in the Vikings. Although the Lions scored two more touchdowns in the third quarter, the Vikings passing game began to click with a touchdown pass to receiver Aiden Kruse and about 100 yards passing in the quarter. Orcas receivers continued to pull down passes in the fourth quarter with two more touchdown passes to Jordan Randolph and Pasha Bullock, but the late offensive push fell short in 61-26 loss.

fter a knock-out performance last summer, pianist Viktor Valkov and cellist Lachezar Kostov are returning to Orcas in December. “They lit our festival on fire last August. Little would I have known that our community would have embraced these musicians,” said Orcas Island Chamber Music Festival Artistic Director Aloysia Friedmann. “Everyone loved their eagerness and their openness. We call them ‘BBB’ – the bad boys of Bulgaria.” Valkov and Kostov will perform for OICMF’s annual Leaves of Gold fundraising concert at Rosario Resort on Thursday, Dec. 12 and Friday, Dec. 13 at 6 p.m. Rosario’s historic Music Room, adorned for the holidays, is the setting for the performances. Following the music, guests will enjoy an hors d’oeuvres buffet and wine reception in the Orcas Room of the Rosario Mansion. Valkov, winner of the 2012 New Orleans International Piano Competition, has been highly

acclaimed by critics as “lion of the keyboard” and “sensational.” He is pursuing a Doctor of Musical Arts at Rice University with Jon Kimura Parker. Kostov, National Winner at the 2006 Music Teachers National Association Young Artists Competition, is hailed for the “awesome purity of his playing,” and as a “prodigiously skilled protagonist.” He is a Doctor of Musical Arts candidate at Rice University where he studies with Norman Fischer and was recently named a cellist with the San Antonio Symphony. The Kostov-Valkov Duo gave their Carnegie Hall debut in 2009 and won first prize at the LisztGarisson International Competition in 2011. “It���s wonderful to have young and exciting talent in our midst,” Friedmann said. “I’m personally thrilled that they’re able to return to Orcas so soon.” OICMF is adding “a touch of red” to this holiday event – for the festive timing and in honor of Lachezar’s love of red shoes. For those who attended the summer festival, they know Lachezar slipped into his red velvet shoes during the recep-

tions. Concert organizers encourage everyone to wear a touch of red and be part of the holiday spirit. Tickets for the concert are $150. For reservations, call 376-6636 or email joyce@oicmf.org. All proceeds benefit the festival’s programming and music education. For those unable to attend, they can be a “guest in spirit” listed in the program, which is a 100 perent tax deductible donation. For more information, visit www.oicmf.org. “Viktor and I  had our debut at OICMF in August, performing alongside some of today’s greatest musicians,” Kostov said. “We knew it would be a challenge, we knew it would be exciting, but there was absolutely no way for us to know what an extraordinarily wholesome experience it would be.” He says they are counting the days until their next visit. During their December concerts, they will be performing alongside Friedmann. “We feel that we are coming back home – where food tastes best, where everyone loves you for who you are, and where music lives,” Kostov said.

Although this is difficult knowing all the effort the players are putting into training, they kept their heads held high from beginning to end. When we did score this season, it felt like we just won the World Cup even though we might be down 7-1!”

The Vikings lost to Providence Classical Christian Highlanders 5-1 in their last regular season

game followed the next day by a first round playoff loss to the La Conner Braves, 4-1. On Oct. 28, the Vikings traveled to Providence Classical Christian and played solid defense with sparks of offensive greatness. Jack Russillo and William Coe narrowly missed a couple of shots on goal, but an early second half attack resulted in the lone Viking goal with a well placed shot by Wylie Kau after good combination sideline play between Russillo and Kau. The Vikings continued to fight hard and ended their regular season overall 5-11. On Oct. 29, the Vikings hosted their first playoff game in years, battling La Conner in the first round.

Wednesday, November 6, 2013 • The Islands’ Sounder

Orcas kept it close most of the first half but a couple of long through balls from the Braves scored, challenging the Vikings with a 3-0 deficit going into halftime. The Vikings came out roaring in the second half with a combination of spectacular passes and nearly converted several scoring opportunities. Orcas scored fairly quickly when Russillo converted a penalty kick but were unable to catch the Braves despite courageous play and hustle. The Vikings finished the season tied for fifth place in Northwest 1A/2B League and were eliminated from playoffs for the fourth consecutive season.

Finance class at library

The Orcas Public Library continues its spring Money Smart program series with a free class, “Your Financial Health, End-of-Year Checkup,” on Wednesday, Nov. 13, 6 to 7 p.m. Presenter Don Cooper, a CPA with Lake, Kennedy, McCulloch, will cover income and Social Security taxes, capital gains and losses, annual credit report review, end-of-year charitable contributions, and beneficiary updates.

‘Tosca’ to stream live from the Met Sweeping drama, murder, lust and political intrigue – all part of Puccini's enduring favorite “La Tosca.” Starring an exceptional trio of singing actors in the leading roles, it will be streamed live from the Metropolitan Opera in Manhattan to Orcas Center on Sunday, Nov. 10 at 1 p.m. Acclaimed American soprano Patricia Racette stars in one of opera's greatest roles as the ultimate diva, Floria Tosca, in Luc Bondy's production.

Cavaradossi, and Georgian baritone George Gagnidze is the corrupt, lustful Scarpia. Italian maestro Riccardo Frizza conducts. Bondy updated the story of a diva, her lover and the lecherous chief of the secret police, from 1800 to a decadent Rome in the early 20th century. When Giacomo Puccini was seized with the idea of making an opera from Victorien Sardou’s play “La Tosca,” he wrote to his publisher that the subject suited him because it was “without excessive proportions or a

decorative spectacle.” Tosca by Luc Bondy is more in line with the composer’s vision of a lean, nofrills theatrical event. Renée Fleming hosts the live production. Tickets are $18 for adults, $13 students, $2 off for Orcas Center members, and may be purchased at www. orcascenter.org or by calling 376-2281 ext. 1 or visiting the Orcas Center Box Office open Wednesday, Thursday and Friday from noon to 4 p.m.

Housing advocate to offer insights 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 on-theground 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 voters approved 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 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, 378-5541, or by email, info@hometrust.org to reserve a spot.

The topside world presents a wide variety of naturally occurring communities inhabited by plants and animals adapted to survive in each special place. The underwater world is no different. However, for people working to recover the Salish Sea, it’s been harder to protect threatened marine creatures and their critical underwater habitats simply because it’s so difficult to find them. Beneath the surface of the Salish Sea lie a dazzling variety of habitats. SeaDoc’s exciting new Tombolo Seafloor Mapping Laboratory is addressing real-time conservation needs by pinpointing Salish Sea habitats. The Marine Science Lecture Series is free to the public.
