Five years of stewardship Indian Island annual celebration highlights community success

Prop. 1 rejected; Ghazel wins school election by COLLEEN SMITH ARMSTRONG Editor/Publisher

Suzana Roach / Orcas Island Photos

Volunteers will make their 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, displays by local students, music 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.

In the race for Orcas School District Director 2 position, incumbent Tony Ghazel swept the Nov. 5 election against Justin Paulsen. “I am happy and thankful for the win and looking forward to the challenges of the next few years,” Ghazel said. “Now, it is time to continue making sure that our children succeed while we remain careful stewards of the public’s funds as we advocate on behalf of our students and staff in this community and in Olympia.” Ghazel received 68 percent of the vote while Paulsen received 32 percent. Board members Scott Lancaster and Chris Sutton ran unopposed.

County crafts budget for the coming year 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. This document, 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 Budget2014/docs/2014Preliminary_Budget_ Book_Complete.pdf. It contains 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 “Non-General Fund” accounts apply to certain dedicated funds which have their own sources of revenue, including dedicated taxes, grants from various sources, inter-governmental transfers,

fees and other sources. These receipts and expenditures will be included in the final budget documents. The preliminary budget summary, which was presented to the council on Nov. 4 and 5 by Auditor Henley and County Manager Mike Thomas, shows a “General Fund” total of $20.4 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, the county council projected expenditures of about $493,000 is about $24,000 less than 2013, possibly reflecting the recent charter amendments reducing the council from six members to three members. Other functions facing cuts in budgets include both “county administration” and “general administration” categories. The auditor, assessor, sheriff, and prosecuting attorney budgets are all up. The document also reviews county employment by fund and function, showing an expected 2014 “full-time equivalent” employment level of 217 employees, a reduction of just over eight FTEs from 2013. The council agenda for Tuesday, Nov. 5, was filled with public hearings concerning four ordinances related to 2014 tax and

that reduced the size of the county council from six members to three, the former six-member council proposed Proposition 1 for a voter decision on the 2013 election ballot. Their unanimous vote to put this proposition on the ballot was one of the final actions of the old council.

Our Orcas Island Middle School marine science class with support from Russel Barsh, director of Kwiaht, a science laboratory based out of Lopez Island, has been reading and studying about rain gardens and constructed wetlands for some time, and we have been having some big rains. Our marine science project was from Sept. 26 to Oct. 17. The goal was to determine how efficient Island Market’s rain garden and the constructed wetland in Eastsound worked at filtering out light oils before allowing the water to continue its journey to the sea The results were amazing. Island Market’s water entering the rain garden contained 1.64 percent oil and exited the system containing only .42 percent oil. The garden had removed 74 percent of the oil that was on the streets before the rains had come. The constructed wetland’s water entering the system contained .46 percent oil and only contained .18 percent oil upon exiting to the sea. The wetland had removed 61 percent of the oil present. The rain gardens and constructed wetlands have been helping our sound, and, if we keep this up, we are going to have great success on helping our marine life and helping ourselves.

Getting into the spirit of ‘Movember’

Contributed photos

Movember is a national event involving the growing of moustaches during November to raise awareness of prostate cancer and other male health issues. Both men and women are getting into the action. Pictured from left to right are: Jessi Gudgell (left) with her college roommate. Matt Haeuser is in a fundraiser to raise money for men’s health at Marty Zier with sideburns and a mustache and Victoria Shaner.

Limited communications restored after outage As of Nov. 11, CenturyLink crews are working around the clock to repair the severed fiber optic cable causing a network outage impacting the San Juan Islands. The San Juan County Council has unanimously declared “A State of Emergency within San Juan County, Washington.” The outage started in the early morning hours of Nov. 5. CenturyLink crews, which have dedicated more than 1,000 hours, have temporarily restored local, long distance, Internet, and 911 services in partnership with OPALCO. CenturyLink has deployed resources from across the state to assist in the repair of the fiber cable, which is more than two miles in length and rests at a depth of 250 feet. The company has brought in international experts who initially helped deploy the fiber to the islands to help pinpoint the issue. At this time, the reason for the cut is still unknown and the break has not yet been located. In addition to the onsite team, CenturyLink has

brought in a team of expert divers, three tug boats, two remote operating vessels, and two barges. The barges, which are between the coast of Pear Point off of San Juan Island and Fisherman’s Bay located on Lopez Island, have cranes and splicing equipment. As of Nov. 9, all San Juan County residents should now be able to call and receive calls from the mainland and other islands via landline, though there may be delays. CenturyLink warns that customers may have to try multiple times to get through when call volume is high.

In addition, 911 emergency service via landline has been fully restored, but emergency responders warn that many cell phone calls may still not connect to 911 emergency response centers. In an emergency, dialing 911 on a landline should be the first priority with cell phone being used only as a back-up. Overall, cell phone service availability continues to vary by location and service provider. DSL Internet service on San Juan Island, which had been restored to approximately 60 percent of its normal capacity, has occasionally been slowed

to less than half that rate and periodically interrupted. The problem is that the tall crane on a repair barge brought in to deal with the broken cable frequently obstructs the radio signal of the OPALCO transmitter that has been pressed into service to transmit Internet data.

The next major step forward in the repair process will be the activation of a new radio data link between Friday Harbor and Lopez. The link should increase the overall phone and data capacity to more than twothirds of the pre-break level. That was set to be activated by Nov. 12. The new link’s

capacity will be used to restore dedicated data lines of the sort used by financial institutions, government agencies, pharmacies and businesses that transfer large amounts of voice, secure data and Internetrelated activity. Visit www.islandssounder. com for updates on this story.

Listen up, men: your health matters


atching our friends and family grow mustaches is entertaining and fun, but there is a serious reason for “Movember”: raising awareness about men’s health. We urge men to take a look at the following information and take action. Men die much younger than women. The average life expectancy for American men is almost five years less than women (presently 76 compared to 81), however there is no biological explanation for this. According to the Movember Foundation, the charitable organization behind the national movement, some of the reasons for men’s poor health See photos are: lack of understanding about the isof islanders sues; not openly discussing their health; sporting reluctance to take action when not feeling mustaches on well; engaging in risky activities; and stigmas surrounding both physical and page two. mental health. The foundation’s goal is to bring in funds and raise awareness that will combat prostate and testicular cancer and mental health challenges. Here are some stats from • One in six men will be diagnosed with prostate cancer in his lifetime. Over 238,000 new cases of the disease will be diagnosed, and almost 30,000 men will die of prostate cancer in 2013. • Testicular cancer is the most common cancer in males between the ages of 15 and 35, and 7,920 men will be diagnosed with testicular cancer and 370 will die in 2013. • Over 6 million men are diagnosed with depression each year. Almost four times as many males as females die by suicide. • 6 million people die every year from tobacco use and exposure to tobacco smoke. One person dies every six seconds. • About 2,240 new cases of breast cancer will be diagnosed among men, and about 410 men will die from the disease in 2013. • Men who sit more than six hours a day have an 18 percent increased risk of dying from heart disease and a 7.8 percent increased chance of dying from diabetes compared with someone who sits for three hours or less a day. Globally, 5.3 million deaths will be attributed to physical inactivity. So men, listen up: if you want to be around for your grand-kids or take that long-awaited trip to Italy with your wife, start paying attention to your health. Get an annual physical. Exercise a few times a week. Don’t eat a cheeseburger every day. And don’t smoke cigarettes. Actually, no one should be smoking – period. Thank you to all those mustache-wearing men (and women) who are helping bring these issues to our attention.

To the Editor: Fabianek says goodbye It is with sad feelings that we announce the closing of the Orcas branch of Inter-Island Chiropractic Offices on Dec. 2. We encourage our patients to continue their care in the Orcas office until that time, and we will continue to see new patients as well if time allows. It has been a pleasure working with you for these past 33 years and we hope to see you again. Thank you for being a large part of Inter-Island Chiropractic Offices. John W. Fabianek, D. C. Anacortes

Please slow down Okay, this is the straw that broke the camel’s back. On Nov. 4, my little cat Dandy was struck and killed in front of our house. We live at 131 Crescent Beach drive. I have spoken to the police many times over the last two years to try to get people to slow down. This is a 20 miles per hour zone and I would say 80 percent of these people go 45 to 50 mph around this corner. Do we have to wait until a person is hit and killed? These people do not care how it impacts the people who live there. I believe the police are trying to do something, but realize there is only so much they can do with the manpower they have. I would like the powers that be to take a serious look at this and give me an answer as to how we can solve the issue. I am so sad about my little guy. He was one of our family.

Airlift NW provides a great service I understand there is some controversy about Airlift Northwest. All I can do is speak about my personal experience with this company. In August of 2012, a family member was injured on San Juan Island. He suffered many serious,

life threatening injuries. With something of this nature, there is a “Golden Hour” for receiving treatment. The same for stroke victims, multiple trauma patients, and others experiencing cardiac distress. Fortunately for us, an Airlift Northwest helicopter with highly experienced medical staff on board arrived at the scene of the accident, and was able to transport my loved one to Harborview Medical Center within 60 minutes of the accident. The chief of staff at Harborview said that it was due to Airlift Northwest that my family member received the critical care he needed in time to fully recover from his injuries. Given that it was rush hour traffic in Seattle at the time, Airlift Northwest pilots landed at the Level 1 trauma center, I can only imagine the damage that could have been done if we had not been able to land at the scene and deliver him directly to the helipad

at Harborview. He certainly would not have made the “Golden Hour” without Airlift Northwest. Many do not realize what an important part Airlift Northwest plays and the countless number of patients that have been saved by their service. When my loved one returned home many months later, he was transported in a fully staffed Airlift Northwest Turbo Commander, saving him hours of travel in an ambulance. We have experienced full circle care with Airlift Northwest, and can not express our gratitude enough. By delivering him from the scene of the accident, to Harborview and back home to Orcas Island, they saved his life every step of the way. That’s the best $79 we’ve ever spent. I highly recommend a membership with Airlift Northwest. Sabryna Bach Orcas

State of the trees in Moran by DIDIER GINCIG

Special to the Sounder

A “state of the trees” meeting was held at Moran State Park where ranger Al Nickerson discussed why trees were cut near the Environmental Learning Center and the walkin campground up Mt. Constitution. Naturally occurring fungus Ecotrophic Mycilia is prevalent in southern B.C., Washington, northern California, western Montana and northern Idaho and can live in trees for hundreds of years. It can cause root rot in stressed trees. Root rot is perhaps a necessary part of a forest ecosystem, as it helps create openings in stands. It has

been around for thousands of years and may not have been so strong here if not for fire suppression. After agencies such as the Department of Natural Resources found root rot in Moran State Park, the state was responsible to mitigate, as liability issues increase with high use and structures. The options were to take out trees or to close facilities. A decision was made to take down trees and replant with less susceptible lodgepole, cedar, and western white pine. One public meeting was held, but few attended. (See Cali Bagby’s February 2012 Sounder article online at http://www.islandssounder. com/news/139575943.


Eleven acres of 5,252 were logged in Moran, with the goal to make areas safe with as small a project as possible. Roots were not taken out as it would be too costly, messy, and soil would need to be cultivated to get out the fungus. Clear cutting near the ELC has to do with proximity of overnight cabins, wind, and protecting newly planted trees with a fifty foot buffer. DNR administered sales to Armada Investments, who subcontracted cutting and hauling. The state park did not make money. Timber loads were supervised. The person in charge of logging informed me he found root rot in one of every four trees. Trees may look fine, but defects may be found while milling. Participants at the meeting were informed that liability drives a lot of the tree cutting. When you get down to it, how deep are tax-payers’ pockets? If the state gets sued successfully, taxpayers pay for that. Here are some questions

Page 5

from the meeting: What is a safe outdoor experience in a forest? Where is the balance of keeping wilderness wild and keeping it safe? How much human intervention is necessary? Are we talking about liability to do the safest thing or stay out of costly lawsuits? How many people have been killed by trees in Washington state parks? Can a release form take care of this? Shall we let the water out of the lake because someone might drown? Does logging increase stress on neighboring trees? Did the project go as planned? Nickerson told participants the project did go as planned and they don’t have to worry about what’s next. Other areas are being assessed; nothing is planned. There would be a public meeting should future cuts be discussed. If you see logging trucks heading down Mount Constitution, there are going to be 30 loads cut at the antennae farm, which is not part of the park.

LWVSJ hosts health care meeting The Membership Meeting of the League of Women Voters of the San Juans on Nov. 18 will cover “Controversy and Clarity: Healthcare and Religious Institutions in Washington State.” It will be held at the San Juan Island Grange in Friday Harbor from noon to 2 p.m.

A panel of speakers will give brief remarks after which the discussion will be opened to written questions from the audience. Scheduled speakers will be Jeff Mero, executive director of the Association of Washington Public Hospital Districts; David Miller, president of the Greater Seattle Chapter

of Americans United for Separation of Church and State; Cynthia Stewart of League of Women Voters of Washington Lobby Team for Health Care; Monica Harrington, part-time resident and activist in the realm of religious restrictions on health care.

Orcas Recycling will now take batteries ORS/The Exchange is pleased to announce that beginning immediately batteries of all kinds will be accepted for appropriate recycling. Household batteries will be accepted for $2 per pound. Vehicle batteries of all types will be accepted for free. “This is another service people have been asking for, and we are excited to provide it,” says Pete Moe, Executive Director of ORS/ The Exchange. “It’s a little tricky to sort batteries properly, but we look forward to working with the pubic on the education piece.” At the new Battery Recycling Station, buckets for each type of battery have been provided with pictures of the different battery types on the lids. Staff will also be able to assist with the sorting.

“We will also provide an online guide to battery sorting on our website,” says Moe. “We would ask folks to sort them at home if possible.” Certain types of batteries also need to have the terminals taped for safety reasons. Complete information on sorting and safety can be found at ORS/The Exchange con-

‘Drowsy Driving Prevention’ Governor Jay Inslee has proclaimed Nov. 11 to 17 as Washington State Drowsy Driving Prevention Week. While getting behind the wheel while tired or sleepy is not a crime like driving drunk, it can be just as dangerous and deadly. In 2010, sleepy drivers killed sixteen people and seriously injured 60 more in Washington state. Nationwide, drowsy drivers cause 1,550 deaths, 71,000 injuries and more than 100,000 accidents each

year. Experts say that after 24 hours without sleep, a driver is as impaired as if he or she were over the legal limit for alcohol. Young drivers, ages 16 to 24, are the most likely group to be involved in a drowsy driving accident. Men have twice as many drowsy driving crashes as women. Besides the obvious advice to get enough sleep, here are some tips. • If you know you are

going on a big road trip or driving at night, get more than enough sleep (seven to nine hours) beforehand. • Don’t be too rushed to arrive at your destination. Many drivers try to maximize the holiday weekend by driving at night or without stopping for breaks. It’s better to allow the time to drive alert and arrive alive. • Use the buddy system. Just as you should not swim alone, avoid driving alone for long distances. A buddy who remains awake for the journey can take a turn behind the wheel and help identify the warning signs of fatigue. • Take a break every 100 miles or two hours. Do something to refresh yourself like getting a snack, switching drivers or going for a run. • Find a safe place to take a 15 to 20-minute nap, if you think you might fall asleep. Be cautious about excessive drowsiness after waking up. • Avoid driving at times when you would normally be asleep. • Consume caffeine. The equivalent of two cups of coffee can increase alertness for several hours. • Don’t rely on stimuli from the radio and/or having the air conditioning turned up or an open window to keep you awake.

Lecture about Obamacare Orcas Crossroads Lecture Series will host University of Washington Law Professor, Patricia C. Kuszler, doctor of medicine and juris doctor, who will present “Obamacare: Fact, Fiction, Fury?” on Sunday, Nov. 17, 4 p.m. at Orcas Center. The Affordable Care Act also known as “Obamacare” has generated debate since its passage in 2010. Kuszler’s presentation reviews the provisions of Obamacare, discusses what it changes and what it does not change, debunks popular fictions, and delves into the fury surrounding the act as it is being implemented. “Often the fury over health care is not really grounded in health care, all the sound and fury is grounded in bigger issues of social justice … the battle of the classes,” said Kuszler. She said it’s important for people to know the truth

ELECTION FROM 1 Proposition 1 amends the charter by substituting the words “Charter Amendment Petition” for the word “initiative” in section 9.33 of the charter. The intent is to get around section 5.34 of the charter, which states that the bound-

about Obamacare for two big reasons. For those who don’t have insurance they can learn what opportunities they may have. If you do have insurance the lecture could open your eyes to what Obamacare will not provide. “There has been so much press on the issue and most of it is bad and not well reported,” she said. “In

aries of county council districts “shall not be changed by the Legislative Body or initiative.” The GMO-labeling measure I-522 was rejected state-wide by 55 percent. Locally, islanders supported the initiative by 65 percent. A total of 7,340 ballots were counted in the election. Voter turnout was 61 percent.

most cases they are largely untrue, but there is always a grain of truth... usually only a grain.” Kuszler has observed health issues from a diverse set of experiences - as an emergency physician, as a practicing lawyer, and now as a professor teaching health law at the University of Washington. She is also director of the Center for Law, Science and Global Health. Come with your questions for the Q & A session after the lecture, and join us for a reception following the presentation. Tickets are $10 and available at Darvill’s Bookstore, online at or at the door. Some complimentary tickets are available in advance at the Senior Center. Cali Bagby contributed to this story.

Local students help plant at land bank property

Kids from three islands teamed up to help restore wetland habitat at the San Juan County’s Land Bank property at Beaverton Valley Marsh. The 14 students in

the fourth to sixth grade classes at Salmonberry School and the 10 students from the seventh grade science class at Spring Street International School in

Friday Harbor met up for the first in what will be a series of environmental stewardship and community service projects this week. The land bank acquired this wetland habitat years ago and has been coordinating volunteers in an effort to reclaim the monoculture canary reed grass cattle pasture and reintroduce the kind of diverse plant species needed to attract birds and other wildlife to restore the ecosystem. “I knew that Salmonberry had worked on this project in the past, planting hundreds of specimens along the edge of these wetlands. And it seemed like such a natural collaboration for us,” said Spring Street teacher Sharon Massey.

Superintendent search starts The following was submitted by Orcas Island School Board Chair Chris Sutton. This is an exciting time of transition for our school. Superintendent Barbara Kline has announced her retirement effective June 2014. At our special meeting on Nov. 7, the school board discussed its search for a new superintendent and decided to form two teams. Team one is “Position of the Superintendent” and is tasked with defin-

Orcas Center and Preservation Trust team up for film festival by CALI BAGBY


Staff reporter

he camera can capture the beautiful, unbelievable and awe-inspiring. The upcoming Wild and Scenic Film Festival provides a look at the “unicorns” of Japan, a man’s fight to save the planet with weed-eating goats and the rescue of a humpback whale tangled in fishing nets. “The theme for this year’s WSFF is ‘A Climate of Change’ and we carefully selected films that had relevance to the Pacific Northwest  for our festival,” said organizer Jeff Ludwig. “Documentaries are a great way to get information and educational efforts to a wide audience.” The festival is co-produced by Orcas Center and the San Juan Preservation Trust and is from  Nov. 15 and 16 at 7:30 p.m. The films run from as short as one minute to as long as 20 minutes. Over 110 films have been accepted for the festival; 15 of these short documentaries will run each night. Tickets are $10. Ludwig, who is also the facilities manager for Orcas Center, got the inspiration for having a film fest after the center acquired a “big screen” and projection equipment for the main theater several years ago. The screen and projection is used primarily to broadcast opera live from the Met and plays from the London National Theater. Ludwig has helped to organize the

Kathleen Foley, of SJPT, said the festival is a great way to spread the message of preservation to a wide audience. “I think there is something for everyone in this film festival. It’s got an environmental theme, yes, but we want people to understand that we didn’t want to choose films that only focused on problems with our environment,” she said. “We wanted to choose films that focused on solutions. We also wanted to keep it light hearted and fun, so there are many great adventure films (some Banff festival winners in there) as well as Performance Sponsors: Jim and Bev Ohlman

some just plain silly ones.” Organizers hope that this may be the start of an annual event at Orcas Center. This is the 11th Wild and Scenic Film Festival Tour to be offered by South Yuba River Citizens League, based in Nevada. SJPT will have a staffed table at the event.  There will also be refreshments and free giveaways during the festival. Body Boat Blade and Wildlife Cycles have donated door prizes. Here are a few cinematic highlights: “The Denali Experiment,” Friday Free-ride skier Sage CattabrigaAlosa and big mountain snowboarder Lucas Debari step out of their elements and make an attempt to climb, ski and snowboard Denali. Sage and Lucas get a helping hand from a huge cast of seasoned and professional climbers and ski mountaineers from the North Face Athlete Team, including Hilaree O’Neill, Conrad Anker, Ingrid Backstrom, Jim Zellers, Emilio Previtali and Giulia Monego, as the two embark on the hardest expedition of their lives. www.camp4collective. com (USA, 2011, 16min) “One Plastic Beach,” Friday Richard Lang and Judith Selby Lang have been collecting plastic debris off one beach in Northern California for over ten years. Each piece of plastic Richard and Judith pick up comes back to their house, where it gets cleaned, categorized and stored before being used for their art. The couple make sculptures, prints,

jewelry and installations with the plastic they find washed up, raising a deeper concern with the problem of plastic pollution in our seas. (USA, 2011, 8min) “Scars of Freedom,” Saturday This is the story of the repercussions of human negligence juxtaposed with the incredible power of human compassion. An entangled humpback whale, left for dead; a fishing net, her anvil. Estimated at 250 kilos this net had cut halfway through the left side of her tail. Between two dives, our film crew heard a radio call announcing some fishermen had spotted an entangled whale. Untrained for such missions, we nonetheless set off to her rescue and captured incredible footage. Beautiful images of humpbacks swimming through the protected waters off Hawaii offer a contrast to the story, concluding with a powerful statement; ‘Change begins with the heart.’ (USA, 2012, 6min) “Moonwalk,” Saturday Dean Potter is nothing if not creative.

“Rock on the Rock Singers” and “Musical Theater Youth Troupe” are returning to the Orcas Center for a holiday concert directed by Grace McCune. Both groups will meet in the Madrona Room at Orcas Center on Thursdays starting Nov. 21 for a fourweek series. The youth choir, ages six to 13, will meet from 3:30 to 4:30 p.m. and the adult choir, ages 16 and older, will meet from 5 to 7 p.m. These groups will then perform for the community at the Emmanuel Episcopal Church in Eastsound on Friday, Dec. 20.

“After having so much fun last year doing our Christmas choirs, I thought we’d do it again and spread some Christmas cheer with music,” said Grace McCune. “I’ll be starting up both choirs again for our regular series starting in January, where we’ll be singing the music from the movie musical ‘Moulin Rouge.’” To register for either class, show up for the first class. There are no auditions. The cost is $40 for the four-week series. Email with any questions.

The Vikings girls volleyball team traveled to Stanwood for the Bi-District playoffs last week, losing a tough back and forth struggle to Seattle Lutheran 5-2 and ending their playoff run with a loss later in the day to Tacoma Baptist 3-0. The Vikings ended the season 9-11. The Viking football team (3-7) ended their season with a loss to the Darrington Loggers (7-3) at Dahl Field. Orcas took to the air for the majority of the game, but inconsistent execution lead to multiple interceptions. The Vikings offense could only piece together a few consecutive first downs and ended the game 34-0. Head Coach Scott Harris is stepping down after this season. “I am still passionate, I love football but time is becoming scarce for me,” he said. He thanked the community for its support of the team over his tenure and looks forward to the future success of his young Vikings.
