Drop in property values slow Combined loss totals $3 million, compared to $1.7 billion in 2012 By Steve Wehrly Journal reporter

The assessed value of the 18,456 taxable parcels in San Juan County declined by a combined sum of nearly $3 million dollars in 2013, according to the San Juan County Assessor. Property tax bills for 2014 are based on 2013 assessments. That’s a fraction of the decline compared to 2012, in which the assessed value of all properties in San Juan County dropped by a combined $1.7 billion, or 21.4 percent. There are 1,443 tax exempt parcels in the county, most of them owned by federal, state and local governments. The largest reductions in assessed values occurred in the Rosario, Olga, Doe Bay tax codes area of Orcas Island (just under $27 million), the Friday Harbor area (down by $21.5 million) and in the south San Juan Island area (down by $19.2 million). The largest increase in assessed values was in the remainder of

Orcas tax code area, where assessment went up by almost $28 million. While some went up and others went down, the net reduction of the 19 county tax area codes together equals roughly $2.7 million. This is the first year that year-over-year assessed value changes are “meaningful,” according to county Chief Appraiser John Kulseth, because 2014 is only the second year that the entire county has been revalued. Revaluations are now made annually to all county properties, although only one-sixth of the county is physically inspected every year. Other valuations are made on the basis of local property sales in the areas not physically inspected. The change to annual revaluations, required by state law, will make future assessments “a lot fairer to everybody,” Kulseth said. “We’re really happy about annual countywide revaluations on a whole bunch of levels.” Requested levy amounts by all taxing districts in the county went up by only .43 percent, mostly because the state levy request went down by 4.52 percent. All other districts except San Juan Hospital EMS and Orcas Cemetery District #2 went up. The total requested See SLOWS, Page 4

March 24, 1989, is a 25th anniversary that is anything but silver. It’s an oily black celebration of death. David Nash and Lynn Danaher certainly aren’t celebrating anything. Their lives and livelihoods were forever altered on that date. They remember it well, but not with fondness. Far from it. Countless living things, including 140 bald eagles, 22 orcas and as many as a quarter million birds died within days of the spill, and many more in the weeks that followed. Pawnation.com estimates that “small organisms were killed by the trillions.” Oceana, a conservation organization, reports that some species of loons, salmon, seals, ducks, herrings, pigeons, mussel and clam populations have never fully recovered. At least 11 million gallons of oil and perhaps as many as 25 million gallons were spilled. Several estimates say that 20,000 gallons or more of the spill still pollute Prince William Sound and nearby beaches. Exxon spent over $3.8 billion to clean up some of the oil, compensate 11,000 residents and fishermen and pay fines. However, it could have been $4.5 billion more. The Alaskan court ordered Exxon to pay $5 billion in punitive damages in 1994. After 14 years of lawsuits and appeals, the U.S. Supreme Court ruled that Exxon only owed $507.5 million - about 12 hours of revenue for the giant oil company, according to Larry West in the About.com Guide to the Environment. Hundreds of claims are still not

paid and many claimants have died - their heirs can claim the payments. Many fishing license holders, including apparently Todd and Sarah Palin, did not file claims. “The pair was among the nearly 1,000 plaintiffs who have not claimed their payouts on a list released last week by managers of the settlement fund,” wrote Yereth Rosen in a Reuters news dispatch. As many as 150 islanders, including twenty from the Nash family alone, fished Alaska at various times before Exxon Valdez. Nash family members fished the Cook Inlet area north of Prince William Sound. Their fishing grounds were heavily polluted with oil.

San Juan Island Distillery’s Apple Brandy won a Gold Medal and a Best in Class award at the annual craft spirits judging sponsored by the American Craft Distillers Association. The Westcott Bay distillery, which opened in 2011, has earned previous awards but these two are the culmination of Suzy and Hawk Pingree’s founding dream. “Making a Washington state apple brandy that is just as good as French Calvados was always our dream, and San Juan Island’s climate conditions are nearly identical to those found in Normandy, France, where fine ciders and Calvados are made,” said Suzy Pingree, head distiller and distillery president. “It has been a long three years of waiting and tasting and family debating about whether it's ready. This award confirms for us that it is so, so ready.” When the Pingree’s partnered with apple grower and cider-maker Rich Anderson to form San Juan Distillery and Wescott Bay Cider, one of the first things they did was distill the apple brandy that has been aging in French oak barrels for three years to give it a complex hint-of-vanilla flavor and rich caramel color. Sixteen judges assessed hundreds of craft spirits submitted from across the country.

The San Juan Island distillery’s apple brandy was the only Northwest brandy to earn a medal and topped all other brandies to win Best in Class designation as well. The distillery will produce a limited release of three cases of the award-winning brandy in mid-June. Spy Hop Gin also received a silver medal in the gin category. It won a silver medal at the American Distilling Institute a year ago. And in 2011, the Apple Eau de Vie (the fresh clear distillate that ages into the Apple Brandy) was awarded a gold medal at the Great Lakes International Cider and Perry Competition, and a bronze medal by the American Distilling Institute. All the distillery’s products are small batch and limited quantity, averaging seven gallons at a time. They are available at island stores and a few Seattle area locations - Wine World in Wallingford, Esquin in Sodo, Total Wines in Lynnwood and Bellevue, and Capco in West Seattle. For more info, visit www.sanjuanislanddistillery.com and www.westcottbaycider. com.

After six years of plotting the course for the state ferry system, David Moseley is handing over the helm. Moseley announced his resignation March 18. His final day on the job is April 15. In a statement about his pending departure, Moseley, who inherited an agency awash in financial struggles and facing uncertainty of how to maintain or replace a fleet of aging boats, said that the state ferry system is positioned Contributed photo better than it was when his tenure began in 2008. “I’m pleased with the progress we’ve made,” he said. “But Washington State Ferries chief David Moseley. it is now time for the next person to build on our successes, correct our mistakes and continue to move the system tainability has been and remains WSF’s biggest challenge,” forward.” San Juan Ferry Advisory Chairman Jim Corenman he said.

It usually means that the seller wants you to be prequalified to get a loan with a lender. It’s important to know that there are 2 ways you can accomplish this. They are the “pre-qual” letter and the “pre-approval” letter. With a pre-qual, the lender usually has not pulled credit and the borrower has only said what his/ her income amount is and what assets they have available. With a pre-approval the lender has qualified the buyer, by pulling credit and analyzing income and assets. The lender can give an actual approval letter with conditions. It’s pretty important to understand your borrowing power before you negotiate for property.

and fished boats for an Alaska cannery from age 15 for several years before they bought their own boats. Neither David nor Paul fish Alaska any longer, though both still own boats and still fish local runs. “I could make $200,000 per year from fishing in a good year. I got less than $100,000 from the Exxon settlement,” David said. Although they love being on the water and are skilled boat handlers and fishermen, fishing isn’t an idyllic pastime for them. “We fished because that’s what we knew, that’s what we did,” said David. “It was hard work, and dangerous if you didn’t know what you were doing. After Exxon Valdez in Alaska and the Boldt decision here, it just isn’t the same anymore.” Lynn Danaher, born in Portland, Ore., homesteaded in Alaska for five years and fished for 14 until 1994. She was a set net fisherman in Halibut Cove, where she lived during fishing season, just around the corner from Prince William Sound. “It broke my heart to leave my home in Halibut Cove,” she said, tears welling up as she recounted how everything changed after March, 1989. She had been making about $60,000 per year before 1989, sometimes more.

In 1989-1990, she made $18,000 working on the cleanup. Danaher recently reflected out loud about her years in Alaska. She was almost poetic, and emotional, in a long interview. “It was an extraordinarily beautiful place and we appreciated where we were and what we did,” she recounted. “The fishery was a well-managed fishery since the 1970’s, with balanced management that preserved the resource for everyone. And we all played by the rules. Everyone who knew what they were doing and worked hard, as I did, could make money from the runs. I got $47,000 from Exxon what a joke! - and lost 80 percent of my investment in my gear and licenses when I finally sold out in 1994 and came to Friday Harbor for good. A few of my Alaska friends did well and I’ve done okay, but our lives have changed. The dynamic of the fishery, and of life, changed. It will never be the same again.” Danaher was active in the lawsuits. “The depositions were a high-level form of harassment by Exxon lawyers, driven by money. They tried to discredit my experience, my life. It was horrific, and it went on for 21 years. And Exxon never took responsibility and the courts allowed them to do that.” The Nashes and Lynn Danaher had different attitudes about fishing, and different responses to the spill and the aftermath, but they all feel cheated out of their lives and livelihoods. “I learned from Exxon that corporations run this country, including the Supreme Court,” said David. “God help us if something like that happens down here.” “At the end of the day, we must remain vigilant here,” said Danaher, who helped found the Friday Harbor Film Festival as a documentary showcase in part to stress local environmental matters. “Oil and coal ships are already here. We can’t stop them, but they must have escort tugs and double hulls.” Both of them, however, had a common thought that applied to Prince William Sound and applies here, expressed by David Nash: “They said it wouldn’t happen there and I believed them. I don’t believe them anymore.”

Sixty tires dumped in Deadman Bay County workers used a Public Works boat like a landing craft and had to rappel down a steep embankment in order to remove 60 tires dumped illegally on a remote San Juan Island beach. The tires proved a challenge to retrieve because they lay on a remote, rocky shoreline at the base of a bluff in the Land Bank’s Deadman Bay Preserve on the west side of the Island. The Public Works boat was brought in on Friday, March 21, because of its hauling capacity and ability to operate in shallow water. Its retractable

launch-gate made it possible to load the tires directly on to its deck. Land Bank Land Steward Doug McCutchen put his rappelling skills to work, recovering tires hung up in trees and on rocky outcroppings. Staff from four county departments – the Sheriff ’s office, Public Works, Community Development and Planning, and the Land Bank – participated in the cleanup. The dumping was first reported to the county code enforcement officer March 12. The Sheriff ’s Department is trying to determine the identity of

I petitioned to run for this position for the following main reasons: n To keep OPALCO a power company first; to be run as a co-op, as according to the co-op bylaws and articles of incorporation. n To make sure that the board’s actions are made transparent to the co-op members. With the new amendments to the bylaws recently passed by the current board (policies 1 & 23), the actions of the board are not transparent to the co-op members. In my opinion, this is totally outside of the intent of what a co-op should be.

n To have an honest accounting of the investment OPALCO has in the Fiber Network. OPALCO has not made it possible for its co-op members to know what actual investment there is in the Fiber Network and how much of our power rates subsidize the broadband operations (Because the separate set of books set up for the Fiber Network investment was closed after five years from the start of OPALCO getting into the fiber business; members are not informed regarding the actual profit/ loss and if we should get out of the business). One of my main responsibilities to the citizens of San Juan County as an elected county councilman is to be able to provide the citizens with information that will affect their lives and livelihoods. This would not be possible if I were to serve on the OPALCO board, as its policy of not allowing board members to speak individu-

Rainy Days Part II: From sprinkles to storms, and beyond In the first article of our stormwater series, we discussed flooding issues around the county and the technical and financial assistance that is available to county residents. This week, in our second article in the series, we will address unwanted puddles and ponds on your property.

What is storm water and why does it matter to you? The San Juan County Surface and Stormwater Assistance Program offers a series of articles that describe how rain water running off our yards, pastures, and streets and drains onto or off your property. The series began (March 12) with a description of stormwater and the services the assistance program provides. In the coming weeks read about causes and solutions to seasonal standing water, how to identify and address septic system failure, how to manage pastures for healthier livestock and improved water quality, and what we are finding in the water running off our land and into our marine waters.

Part 2: Standing water on your property: understanding the causes and possible solutions

negative impacts such as flooding and contamination. Many of the calls received at Public Works are related to water-ponding in an area where it is neither desired nor intended. To manage this water and redirect it to beneficial uses we need to think about where it came from and how to get it back where it belongs. When we develop our property we typically remove some vegetation, trees and brush, and add structures like homes and driveways. Some of the things that happen when developing our property include: removal of vegetation increases the amount of water runoff that needs to be managed; soil becomes less permeable without the actively growing root

Most of us don’t think about managing stormwater until we need to. Have you experienced flooding or ponding on your property? If so, help is available if you need it. Stormwater is a resource that supports many aspects of our lives and environment. Good stormwater management directs stormwater to uses that are beneficial, like aquifer recharge and maintaining stream flow while controlling the

systems, so less water soaks into the ground; the house, driveway, and other structures keep more water from seeping into the ground so that water now has to be managed as runoff; some of our landscaping, like lawns, result in less permeable surfaces than the vegetation that was removed. Our property likely absorbed rainwater well before development. After development, however, there is usually more water to manage because there are fewer permeable areas to put the extra water and some of those areas are not as permeable as they used to be. The result is ponded water; a misplaced resource. So how can we deal with this? We need to get the water where it needs to go. In most

Tragedy strikes End run by Washington’s executive? Inslee will have more room to operate close to home Gov. with lawmakers now headed for home

S

ometimes we are less moved by random tragedy far away, even as compassion wells up for families who have lost loved ones. But that can’t be true for nearby families whose children come to our islands to compete in sports or to tour the Whale Museum. “It makes me want to cry,” said Oso-area resident Dane Williams, after the mudslide near his home claimed 14 lives, injured six and left 108 others unaccounted for. It makes islanders sad, too. Partly because we may know that area and some of its people, maybe because we may have traveled along Highway 530 between Arlington and Darrington for recreation or a softball game. We may have stopped at the Oso General Store for a soda, or commented on the serenity of the Stillaguamish. This is how it should be in small towns like ours. We ought to feel compassion for neighbors who suffer such arbitrary, seemingly meaningless, tragedy. They deserve our thoughts. And they deserve our support and, if we can, donations. It won’t end the pain or stanch the tears, but it will let them know that we care. To help, call 1-800-RedCross, text “RedCross” to 90999 or go online to www.redcross.org.

o one could be happier to see state lawmakers wrap up and head home than Gov. Jay Inslee. They departed a week ago and won’t return until January 2015. That gives the rookie Democratic governor nine-plus months to get some work done without interruption or interference from those who’ve foiled him repeatedly since he arrived in Olympia. Inslee is still getting the hang of the give-and-take of the legislative process after two sessions. And it’s a challenge no amount of travel on the Olympia learning curve may help him overcome. Democrats and Republicans in the House and Senate are beginning to accept the congressman-turned-governor is a product of his past political life in Washington, D.C. They’ve come to expect he’ll rail on Republicans when he considers them obstructing his path and cast no unkind words at Democrats when they thwart his wishes. As a result, his influence this session seemed muted on the most talked-about policy disputes like transportation, medical marijuana and revising the teacher evaluation system to secure a federal education waiver. Several lawmakers wrangling on the waiver matter shrugged at learning two days before the end of the legislative session, Inslee traveled to Snohomish County to conduct his own closed-door talks on education — with second-graders. They didn’t know he wasn’t in town and didn’t seem to think it would have made a difference. Such an attitude underscores why Inslee is looking forward to not having lawmakers around for a few months. Ditto for his advisers who hope to capitalize on this opportunity to advance a mostly-stalled political agenda and leave his imprint on the state. To accomplish this, there is an expectation Inslee will rely

on every available instrument of power and exercise every available ounce of authority allotted governors through the state constitution. He demonstrated a willingness to push the bounds in February when he declared a moratorium on use of the death penalty in Washington, putting an end to executions for at least as Contributed photo / Everett Daily Herald long as he holds office. Jerry Cornfield In the coming months, it is anticipated he will issue a variety of executive orders to undertake new policies, practices and initiatives outside the reach of legislators. Already this year he’s signed noncontroversial ones creating a task force to boost the outdoor recreation industry and increasing the number of state employees working flexible hours and telecommuting. The third, signed March 13 without notice, establishes the 23-member Interagency Coordinating Council for Infants and Toddlers with Disabilities and Their Families. Inslee will appoint all the members, who in turn will advise the Department of Early Learning in developing early intervention services statewide. His critics are nervous the governor might use the powers of his office to do something on much bigger issues, like raise the minimum wage for workers paid under state contracts or require state agencies to only purchase fuel with less carbon in it. Whether Inslee could make such moves or do anything close isn’t clear. He’s got nine-and-a-half months to explore the possibilities and many of his political opponents couldn’t be less happy about it.

Rainy Days: Cont. from pg. 6 cases, providing a method for the water to seep into the ground is a good option. All soils are permeable to some degree, sand more so than clay. Getting the water to seep into sandy soils is fairly easy. What if you have clay soils? Infiltration is still a good option but you will need to add the water to a larger area to get the same amount of water to seep into the ground. Infiltration can also be enhanced by cultivating specific types of plants that have active roots systems in the seepage area. The soils themselves can also be modified to improve infiltration. Another approach is to reduce the concentrated flow of runoff on the property. If all the runoff from a property flows into a single pipe it can create a lot of force. With all that force it has more of a tendency to runoff rather than sink in. This can be addressed by either keeping the water from concentrating in the first place, or by building a small structure to spread the water out after in is concentrated. You may have noticed that some roofs have gutters that collect all the water that falls on the roof and concentrate it in the downspout. The force of the water coming off the roof can then erode the

ground and has reduced opportunity to seep into the ground. Concentrated sources like this can be slowed down and spread over a larger area, thus allowing more infiltration. In some cases the water is simply allowed to drip off the edge of the roof, rather than being collected in gutters. This eliminates the concentrated discharge of the downspout and allows for infiltration into the ground over a larger area. Our properties have a lot of similarities and differences. For that reason it is best to consult an expert to determine which approach is best for your property. Not all of the approaches described above are appropriate for all properties. Technical assistance is avail-

able from the Surface and Stormwater Assistance Program (SSWAP), at no cost, to help you consider ways to improve the stormwater management on your property.

Cleanup comes earlier than before, April 5 The good news is that it works. But the sobering reality? No matter how much discarded debris is swept up as part of San Juan Island’s annual community wide spring cleaning event, aka the Great Island Cleanup, there’s more work to be done each time a new season rolls around. Consider the numbers: A year ago, the GIC brigade corralled, collected and disposed of more than 3,600 pounds of garbage from roughly 45 miles of roadways and a couple of beaches. That’s nearly two tons of trash. The year before, GIC’s team of 200-plus volunteers swept up about 2,000 pounds. And the year before

that? The total exceeded more than two tons, nearly 5,000 pounds of just about every kind of litter imaginable. “… sadly, our refuse continues to end up as litter,” GIC coordinator Lori Stokes said. “Thoughtless tossing of bottles, cans, food wrappers or cigarette butts, accidental ‘blowing away’ of debris from unsecured loads on boats and trucks, or deliberate dumping of tires, etcetera, all contribute to the need to make litter pickup an ongoing effort.” That effort gets under way April 5, beginning at 9 a.m. Mark your calendar because that’s weeks earlier than in prior years.

T

he Irish author and playwright Oscar Wilde has long been admired for poking fun ever-so-slyly at the establishment, the upper-crust of Victorian society in his day, through the use of a razor-sharp wit, satire and dramatic dialogue overflowing with double meaning. Probably not the qualities that one might normally associate with the typical teenager. So, be prepared to have your expectations upended when the Friday Harbor Middle Players present Wilde’s time-honored and signature stage production, “The Importance of Being Earnest.” This group of actors not only understands the nuances of Wilde’s language, but when it comes to the subtle or not-so-subtle humor, they “get it.” That realization rang true for director Jane Maxwell Campbell after she lopped off a few lines here and there to reduce the production’s running time just a bit, and the cast then asked her to reconsider. “The lines they wanted back in show me they’re getting the humor,” Maxwell Campbell said. “Maybe it’s a little bit above their head, you bet. But sometimes it’s a good thing to have to reach a little.” A tall order perhaps, but the cast of nine brings a good deal of collective experience to the stage, with many having performed earlier in Missoula Children’s Theatre productions and in the San Juan Community Theatre’s Family Theatre performances as well. Confidence in portraying the sophistication of their characters grew as rehearsals progressed, Maxwell Campbell said. And, having middle schoolers delivering worldly-wise lines while dressed in elegant Victorian cos-

tumes only heightens the ironic effect that Wilde intended to draw out in the play. Performed for the first time on Valentine’s Day in London, in 1895, The Importance of Being Earnest takes a satirical look at Victorian customs, the nature of marriage, the constraints of morality of the day, hypocrisy versus inventiveness and, in the end, the importance of sincerity, or, on the flip-side, of not being “earnest.” It’s also a thought-provoking play that offers the director an opportunity to expose her cast to a great piece of literature, and to revel in the role of teacher as well as director. “It’s a play about what it means to be real, to be who you are and to not pretend to be something else,” Maxwell Campbell said. “And, it’s about being accepting of others.” Could there be a better subject for a middle schooler to tackle?

NOTICE Washington State law requires wood sellers to provide an invoice (receipt) that shows the seller’s and buyer’s name and address and the date delivered. The invoice should also state the price, the quantity delivered and the quantity upon which the price is based. There should be a statement on the type and quality of the wood. When you buy firewood write the seller’s phone number and the license plate number of the delivery vehicle. The legal measure for firewood in Washington is the cord or a fraction of a cord. Estimate a cord by visualizing a four-foot by eight-foot space filled with wood to a height of four feet. Most long bed pickup trucks have beds that are close to the four-foot by 8-foot dimension.

Week 7: Nibler tops Derby field

Justin Nibler snared a 14.56-pounder to take home the weekly prize in Week 7 of the Frank Wilson Memorial Fishing Derby, a $75 gift certificate from Kings Marine. With the prize winning catch, Nibler also kept claim on second place on the leader board with three weeks to go in the annual 10-week fishing derby. But perhaps best of all, he edged out fishing buddy Kevin Klein, by only .37 pounds, to take on the weekly award and to keep hold of the runner-up position. “I bumped him the week before, so I guess turn about is fair play,” said Klein, the derby’s Week 6 winner. “That’s when this tournament gets fun…watching that leader board change.”

Beauty, but... Kevin Klein’s 14.19 pound catch wasn’t quite enough to edge out Justin Nibler for the Wilson derby’s weekly prize .

Paul claims ping pong title No. 2 San Juan Island’s Roger Paul successfully fended off the tenacious, spirited play of Daniel Farber of Anacortes to claim first place in the top division of the 3rd Annual Island Rec Table Tennis Tournament. Paul bested the field two years ago to take the ‘Table 1’ title in 2012 as well, the tournament’s inaugural year. The 2014 tournament, held March 16 in Turnbull Gym, marked an uptick in participation, with a total of 17 players competing in four competitive divisions, several of whom, like Farber, came from off-island. Top finishers in the other tournament divisions: Table 2, John Entermann of Anacortes, Table 3, Friday Harbor’s Tony Fyrqvist and Table 4, Jock Warren. Tournament prizes were provided by Pablitos, Mi Casita, Van Go’s Pizza and the Golden Triangle restaurant.
