A former Sequim basketball coach is awaiting charges this week for allegedly having a relationship with an underage player. Sequim Police opened an investigation on March 21 into 28-year-old Jerry Ped- Pedersen ersen, SHS assistant varsity girls basketball coach, after allegations emerged that he had an inappropriate relationship with a 15-year-old player. Police interviewed high school staff and students and later obtained cell phone records and stored data that led to Pedersen’s arrest on Tuesday, April 1. Det. Sgt. Sean Madison of the Sequim Police Department said they originally sent Pedersen’s case to the Clallam County Prosecutor’s Office with 11 Class C felony charges of communicating with a minor for immoral purposes via text messages. Madison said the prosector’s office declined to charge Pedersen with the felonies and sent it back to the City of Sequim to try Pedersen with 11 gross misdemeanors. However, Madison said he has discussed the case with the prosector’s office again and he’s sent the case back to that office to reconsider felony charges. There is no timeline for a decision on whether Pedersen will be charged with misdemeanors or felonies, Madison said. If Pedersen is convicted of a Class C felony, he must register as a sex offender. Pedersen was held in Clallam County Correctional Facility and later released

How do you move a 40-plus-year-old palm tree? Carefully. The palm tree that greeted visitors to Sequim’s City Hall for more years than many city staffers can recall has a new home … directly across the street. On March 29, thanks to the efforts of Knut Orloff of Big Trees of Sequim, property owners Kevin Bell and Lee Cowan moved the tree from the old city hall lot at 152 W. Cedar St. to a lot across the street at 153 W. Cedar St. Using a tree transplanter truck, Orloff and Bell and horticulturist Ian Barclay removed the palm, roots and all, from the building that’s soon-to-be demolished in order to make room for construction of Sequim’s new Civic Center, set for completion in 2015. Barclay, owner of The Desert Northwest — a Sequim specialty nursery producing and promoting plants adapted to the Northwest’s dry summer — said the palm As Kevin Bell, left, looks on, Knut Orloff of Big Trees of Sequim caremaneuvers a hydraulic treemover into place at the old Sequim has a relatively shallow root fully City Hall.

Tooth Truth


with Richard (Bud) Davies, DDS Family Dentist


I hear that familiar song line often as a dentist. It is not about breaking up and broken hearts. It is about broken teeth and missing parts. Soooo, why is it that a tooth can be painless and trouble-free for years and then all of a sudden it hurts? As in so many areas of life, things that function well can be surreptitiously destroyed. Rust, cancer, disaffection and decay can all proceed unnoticed in a fully functioning organism. We cannot expect to be warned by symptoms. So oil your car, get a medical exam, tend to human relationships and see your dentist to make sure your dental health is truly good.

A centerpiece in Sequim’s landscape is up for sale. Following the closure of El Cazador restaurant, 531 W. Washington St., owners are selling the building and the historical Clallam Co-op granary. Gary Morgan, accountant for El Cazador and its EC Sequim Properties LLC out of Mount Vernon, said the Mexican restaurant closed on March 3. El Cazador opened in 1981 but closed due to declining revenues, Morgan said. The building and granary go to a trustee’s sale, a public auction, on April 27 if the facility is not sold. “We didn’t want to close,” Morgan said. “We’d prefer to sell before the trustee’s sale.” Morgan said the site is going for $600,000. For more information, call Morgan at 425-775-6060.

From page A-1 Carlton Chastain, 25. The internship ran from January to late March and was conceived by Ed Evans, news director at KSQM, with input by journalism instructor Rick Riski. “It’s been invaluable to work with people in the business so long, like Ed, our radio guru,” said Wasson. “It was a fantastic learning experience in a family environment.” Wasson and Chastain have a fair amount of print journalism experience, both having been managing editors of The Buccaneer, the college’s newspaper, but broadcasting was an entirely different world, Chastain said. Instead of picas and column inches, they dealt with soundbites and audio files. “Ed taught me how to edit soundbites to upload them to the hard drive to be broadcast,” Wasson said. “I also spent time making the website more user friendly. I had to learn how to talk slower and Ed coached me every step of the way to make sure we got a good sound.” Wasson primary studies are in homeland security and emergency management. “Journalism has been a really great platform for my other studies. It’s made me a better communicator and observer,” Wasson said, also praising Riski for setting up the journalism certificate program. “I couldn’t have gotten to be where I am now without him.” Chastain, who’s major-

ing in general studies, plus taking on the extra 25 credits for the journalism certificate, also has high praise for Evans. “Ed is a great mentor and teacher. That he’s a wealth of information and that he has been in the business for 25 years made the entire experience fulfilling,” Chastain said. “I have a fair bit of experience in print journalism — he taught me everything I need to know in broadcasting. A lot of it was hands-on teaching to get me somewhere between Walter Cronkite and a rookie.” Chastain said Evans taught him to think about what the audience’s environment is and taught voice coaching and how to phrase sentences. On the technical side, he learned how to use portable audio recorders and mikes for live interviews and how to upload the MP3 audio files to KSQM’s digital system, as well as use audio editing software. He also wrote about five news stories of up to five minutes each for volunteer deejays to read. Wasson still has a few weeks of her internship to go. Then after she graduates in 2015, she wants to attend either Western Washington University or Washington State University and earn a communications studies degree. Chastain also hopes to graduate in 2015 and is considering Evergreen State College or WWU. “I think the radio station fulfills a great service for the community,” Chastain said, “and exists because of community support and makes opportunities for those of us just getting started.”

Sequim family makes magical memories with cancer patient by MATTHEW NASH Sequim Gazette

A recent trip to the Magic Kingdom helped create some memorable moments for Cheryl Ghere, 58, and her family. After an online fundraiser by her daughter Lacy Thompson set for $7,000 raised $8,000, Ghere and her family were off to Anaheim, Calif. on March 13-18 to visit Disneyland. The reason: Ghere who has been battling colorectal cancer for three years received a diagnosis on Feb. 12 that her cancer went terminal with doctors giving her nine months to two years to live due to inoperable cancer in her pelvic soft tissues. Ghere, the former finance director for the Boys & Girls Clubs of the Olympic Peninsula, has been a huge Disney fan her whole life and wanted to share a special trip with her grandchildren. She last visited in 2007 with her three eldest grandchildren and wanted to see her youngest granddaughters see Mickey Mouse for the first time. Thompson said that’s exactly what happened. On their last day in Disneyland, Ghere opted not to go on Splash Mountain but watch a parade with granddaughters Emma, 2, and Olivia, 1 ½. “The babies had not seen Mickey Mouse in person yet, so we rushed from Splash

We all missed the girls’ faces when they saw Mickey, however my mom was the first one to see their faces. I’m glad my mom was able to have that moment, by herself, with the girls.” Ghere traveled with nine

family members including Thompson, Ghere’s two other daughters Lindsey Richardson and Kelsey Blair, Lindsey’s husband Derek, and Ghere’s grandchildren Olivia and Emma, Kynsie Richardson, 11, Hailie Richardson, 15, and Jordan Richardson, 17.

several Disney characters. As for the trip overall, Thompson said it was outstanding with perfect weather and good attitudes. “I sincerely hope everyone who donated knows just how much they helped my mom and her family by giving us this opportunity,” she said. “I hope this thank you finds them filled with warmth and happiness to know they helped a family make some everlasting memories.” Thompson said one particular moment will never leave her. “Disneyland put on a fireworks show that they do every weekend (and) when Tinkerbell flew over the castle, I looked over at my mom and she was crying yet had a huge smile on her face,” she said. “I will never forget that moment.”

Another sexual claim filed against Sequim grad Powell trial delayed by MATTHEW NASH Sequim Gazette

Another student of former Tacoma teacher and Sequim High grad Meredith Powell, 24, has gone to police with sexual misconduct allegations. Powell, who already faces two counts of child rape in the third degree and one count of communication with a minor for immoral purposes, was set for an April 24 trial date in Pierce County Superior Court before the new allegation led to a new trial tentatively set for June 12. The new charge for sexual misconduct with a minor in the second degree comes from a student, 18 at the time of the alleged offense, who was in Powell’s math class in Lincoln High School in Tacoma. He said that sometime be-

Court on Feb. 7, a day after being arrested. Powell has been released to her mother in Sequim since then. Allegations first came out when the Tacoma School District reported Powell to Tacoma Police on Monday, Feb. 4, for an alleged inappropriate contact between her and a 17-year-old student. Powell had written a letter to the boy’s girlfriend apologizing for “promiscuous” and “unprofessional” comments and texts sent to the boy. Powell told police that she gave the boy and two other students her cell number and that on either Jan. 24 or 25, while drunk at home, she exchanged texts with the 17-year-old. He claimed one text included her home address and that he sensed Powell wanted to have sex with him. According to court documents, Powell also admitted to kissing a then 15-year-old boy on Jan. 17 in her classroom after an assembly. The boy told

police that on the day of the assembly the two had engaged in inappropriate sexual behavior. Powell also admitted to kissing and inappropriate touching with him and they began sending inappropriate texts after New Year’s Eve. Court documents state a second 15-year-old said he and Powell had been sending texts to each other, including her sending him a nude photo. He said they kissed, touched inappropriately and she performed oral sex on him a few days following the assembly. In a second interview with police, court documents show, Powell confirmed she had performed oral sex on the second 15-year-old boy in her classroom and had engaged in inappropriate touching and sent him nude photos. Previously, Powell was a student teacher in Sequim High School in the winter of 2012 and a substitute teacher in spring 2012. There were no complaints against her.

about it when I told them,” Madison said. Pedersen had been a volunteer assistant varsity girls basketball coach under head coach Evan Still since November 2012. Still declined to comment regarding the allegations. Madison said they found no evidence that Pedersen was inappropriately involved with any other team members or students and that no other coaches or staff are being investigated. “It involves one man and one stu-

dent,” Madison said. Sequim Schools District Superintendent Kelly Shea said the district removed Pedersen from his position once the allegations came out. Whether Pedersen can coach again depends on the investigation, he said. “(The) reality of it all is that with these (coaching) positions there’s a great deal of trust. It’s either going to be broken or seriously questioned,” Shea said. “For him to continue working with children is unlikely, but there is an outside chance all of this is fabricated

which does leave the option of him returning,” Shea said. Like other volunteers coaches in the school district, Pedersen was fingerprinted and given a volunteer checklist that includes information on student/coach interaction. Madison said there’s no dispute that there are criminal acts. “It’s going to be prosecuted,” Madison said. “It’s a discussion which court would be more appropriate with (misdemeanor or felony) charges.” Pedersen graduated from Sequim High School in 2004.

days, Cedar Street between Sequim Avenue and Second Avenue will become one lane for utility work sometime between May and June. At night the lane will reopen with metal plates over the holes. It is unknown, Garlington said, if there will be one lane traffic or traffic cones in place to displace traffic aside on Sequim Avenue when crews demolish the former Serenity House buildings.

received some good news for nearby residents, Garlington said. Originally the city was going to replace the entire sewer system from Second Avenue to Seal Street to increase the sewage capacity but the city will replace two manholes instead. “ We’re still going to close off the alleyway but it’s not going to be as extensive,” Garlington said. “Apartment parking isn’t going to be impacted and Sewer speed up it speeds (the project) up A portion of the project by several weeks.”

In one instance she allegedly touched him sexually and said “This stays between us.” He was embarrassed and did not tell anyone until his mother prompted him after recent news reports about Powell. His mother told detectives she noticed powell behavior changes in her son last year during this time when he wanted to transfer schools, which he did on April 12, 2013. Powell, a 2007 Sequim High School graduate and University of Idaho graduate, had been teaching math at Lincoln since Sept. 4, 2012, before resigning shortly after the allegations came forward. She was on unpaid leave. She pled not guilty to the first three charges in Pierce County Superior

Pamper your pet pals Bonetique has bones, biscuits, baths by PATRICIA MORRISON COATE Sequim Gazette

For all the unconditional love pets give, they deserve to be pampered and spoiled a bit, too. Blissie’s Bonetique, a new shop specializing in pet treats, toys and grooming opened March 23 due south of Walgreens at 459 W. Washington St. Touting they offer “bones, biscuits, baths and more,” owner Ryan Mortenson, manager Kelley Furia and professional groomer Shannon Pierson, said they aim to provide pet and ownerfriendly services to Sequim’s canines and felines. Bliss is an ideal state and Blissie was an ideal friend and companion to Mortenson until last year. “Blissie was my toy poodle and the inspiration for the name and the shop. She passed away on June 8 and the shop keeps her memory going,” Mortenson said. “If it weren’t for the dogs, I don’t know what I’d be doing. I have a degree in computer graphics but that’s not as rewarding as this.” All of the store’s food, treats, bones and chews are all natural and made in the U.S. or Canada, both known for their strict regulations on pet consumables. Right now, the airy, brightly lit shop carries Evangers and Now dog foods with many more healthy varieties on the way. “We carry Answers goat milk and a good selection of raw food from Northwest Naturals and Small Batch plus freeze-dried foods and treats,” Mortenson said. “We also carry supplements and hemp toys, collars, leashes and tug ropes that actually are digestible, and bones from the smallest to the largest,” he noted, heaving one the size of a human calf bone, over his head. “We also have frozen bones with marrow — it’s all higher quality and more health conscious treats and food and it’s all grain-free.” As word has gotten out about Blissie’s, Mortensen has seen self-service bathing in two ample tubs, complete with variable speed dryers, become highly popular. The shop supplies all natural, non-chemical shampoo and

The second Air Affaire is slated for Aug. 30-31. The “flyin” includes live music, biplane rides, skydivers, remote controlled and experimental aircraft, hot air balloon rides, a car show, vendors and food.

Blissie’s Bonetique

459 W. Washington St. 683-0174 Hours: 9 a.m.-6 p.m. Monday-Friday; 9 a.m.-5 p.m. Saturday towels; the tubs easily can hold a Great Dane each. Self-service baths are done on a walk-in basis. It’s dubious whether dogs would call grooming being pampered, but Pierson, with six years of experience, knows how to get the best from them. Charges for grooming vary by breed with shelties, for example, requiring quite a bit more brush work than a sleek lab.

“Grooming includes a bath, brushing, haircut or styling, nail clipping and ears cleaned,” Mortensen said. “We’ve seen a huge response to it. Business has been great and we’ve actually been surprised. Everyone has just been so friendly. We’ve had people from Port Townsend and they send business our way, particularly for the grooming business.” Mortenson said pets and their humans should give Blissie’s a try because, “We’ve got it all in one place. We’re the only ones who have food, treats and self-service bathing, plus we’re locally owned. I saw a need for the business and a couple of months later we were opening our doors.” Grooming visits are by appointment only.

St. Andrew’s Place, an assisted living community, recently announced its 1940s themed open house as part of its anniversary celebration. The party commemorates 16 years of service and is from 9 a.m.-noon on Saturday, April 26, at 520 E Park Ave., Port Angeles. All ages are welcome to attend the free event. Call 360-479-2883.

Financial planning seminars set On Thursday, April 24, at 4 p.m. and 6 p.m., the Dungeness River Audubon Center in Sequim will host “Is My Estate Plan in a Tangle?” the eighth in a series of free financial planning seminars.

LETTERS TO THE EDITOR Duty to upgrade schools I feel it is our fundamental duty to support our local school district by voting for the bond. Besides the obvious reasons of improved education outcomes and improved facilities for public use, both of which strengthen our community, it is shown that our property’s market value increases with better school facilities. As we look at our community as a whole, our ability to attract and retain quality health care professionals and businesses is greatly enhanced by having school facilities that are up to date. A secure modern educational setting allows families to thrive and people looking for an area to prosper know that. There is no question that this is a major investment in the community and for some people with fixed incomes there will be an impact, but Sequim School District’s levy rate will still be below the state average. There has been some discussion about why now and why such a major investment. The community Facilities Committee studied the issues for 10 months, the districts Board of Directors reviewed the recommendations and came to the same conclusion this is the basic package of improvements necessary to meet the districts 21st century’s needs. After years of neglect and a favorable borrowing climate this is the right time to make an investment in our community’s future. As John Adams, one of our nations leading founding fathers wrote over 230 years ago, “Whole people must take upon themselves the education of the whole people and must be willing to bare the expense of it.” Steve Tharinger State Representative Sequim

Vote no on bond issue Wait a minute. Time out. It seems that this spending spree being proposed for the schools and library is way out of hand. Pretty soon here we are going to be talking big money. Oh, I know, the tax and spend crowd are telling us that it’s “only” some small amount per thousand on an average home. Add up all these “onlys” that have been added to your taxes over the years and see what it totals up to. If these bonds pass, be prepared for some real sticker shock on your property tax statements in the coming years. VOTE NO. Dick Sutterlin Sequim

Clear choice on bond issue Sometimes there is a clear choice and this year the bond request is one such decision. $154 million is a big number. But the number is only as big as the challenge. Two separate committees in 2007 and 2013 determined that the same things need to be fixed; archaic science classrooms, cracked tennis courts, dangerous kitchens, leaky ceilings, decrepit sports fields. When you walk into someone’s home you can tell what they value. This also rings true for someone’s local school. So what kind of school shows who you are? One that houses the disabled students in 25-year-old portables whose ceilings are falling down? How about the school with the worst athletic fields in the Olympic League? Or the one with rats living in the base kitchen? Our house is not in order but on April 22 you have the power to change that. We have called Sequim home for 20 years, raised three daughters and watched with pride as they graduated from the Sequim School district and continued on. We as a community have an opportunity to rebuild a broken down, outdated school facility. A yes vote means future generations will be supported by a modern educational system that we can all be proud of for decades to come. Please join us in voting yes for Sequim schools. A ‘yes’ vote means more than a just a positive outcome for kids. It reflects civic pride, our community’s integrity and a shared vision to all who call this green valley home. Conn and Virginia O’Neil Sequim (O’Neill is a former Sequim School Board director)

Is this the way to fund schools? Several people have commented on funding a program in the Sequim public schools. While I would support what I’ve seen in the papers, we should note that we taxpayers are enabled to fund or reject a proposal affecting our public schools. In the Seattle Post Intelligencer of Aug. 10, 2007, a cartoon asks: “Why would this be a ridiculous way to fund our military but the standard way we fund our schools?” We see an obviously high-ranking officer, addressing his colleagues: “We’ll have to surrender unless we can convince voters to pass a special war tax levy.” I can’t help wondering, suppose we taxpayers had been presented a levy for invading Iraq and Afghanistan — would we still be funding over a decade of war? Just wondering. Milton Patrie Sequim

Do work on schools in phases The school bonds should be time-phased according to need and project priority. If these funds are acquired in a single issue, they will disappear into the bureaucratic blue hole and the district will be back for more. The existing schools should be upgraded by the current property owners and the new east-side school should be built with developer newcomer fees. It is no surprise that this school bond discussion surfaced after the city hall funds were procured. The schools should have had priority over the city hall complex. Oh yeah, you will be shocked at how fast the city government will grow when they have room to expand. Ron McPherson Sequim

if you’re just floating you don’t have any control, so you have to go slightly faster than the flow. So we would go about eight miles an hour. When you get to Baton Rouge, you start running into ocean-going ships that come all the way up to Baton Rouge, which is almost a hundred miles from the Gulf of Mexico. To protect ourselves at night we would get up in shallow water where we knew the towboats could not possibly go up there and tie up to a tree. Which was OK, except one time we did that and the water in the river was dropping down — it had been at flood stage — and overnight it dropped about three or four inches and stranded us. It took about a day and a half before we flagged down a couple of guys who were fishing and they came over and they helped us push the houseboat off. But we were almost dry for a while. When we got to New Orleans, we were going to berth in a little town called Lafitte, so we locked out of the Mississippi into this bayou. I can’t tell you what a relief it was to get up in this bayou because it was calm and peaceful with no traffic except little fishing boats. That trip was quite an experience. It took about two weeks to go 1,400 miles on the river.” Everyone has a story and now they have a place to tell it.

“I used to live near Nashville, Tennessee, and I got a job in New Orleans. I owned a houseboat at the time, on a lake in Tennessee. I decided to move on the houseboat, so I sold everything I owned that I couldn’t get on the houseboat. I traveled on the Cumberland River up through Tennessee and Kentucky and locked through several locks on the Cumberland and then locked through onto the Ohio River and then down the Ohio to just near Cairo, Missouri, and hit the Mississippi and went down the Mississippi all the way to New Orleans. On the Mississippi there are huge towboats, pushboats, really — I don’t think people can appreciate how big they are. They have these triple engine diesels and each boat will move as many as 42 barges — each one! So they have these barges lashed together six across and seven deep in a great big raft and one of these pushboats will push one of these huge rafts. When you see one coming up the Mississippi, you’ll swear there’s no room to get past. It just looks that way; actually they pass each other coming and going, it’s such a huge river, but from a distance it looks like there’s no way to get past one of them. As you get closer, you realize you can get past. The only problem is that they have no respect at all for pleasure boats. They’re like freight trains — they couldn’t stop if they wanted to. So you just gotta watch out for them. And if you meet one of those rafts of barges fully loaded, imagine how much water they displace with 42 barges full. When you pass one, it tosses you all over the place. It’s a huge wake, and not from the engines so much as from the displaced water that comes rushing back in. So it’s quite a thrill to meet one of those big barge outfits going down the river. And when you’re on the river, you can’t just float. The river runs at about six miles an hour, depending on the flood stage, and

We know the reasons why we should pass this bond: safety, dilapidated buildings, future costs. This isn’t going to go away. We also know that financially it is asking a lot of us. When my wife and I talk about supporting this bond we always come back to the fact that we moved to this community because it supports its schools. We are proud of this fact. The state of its schools is

full-day kindergarten. But we can’t spend these funds on capital projects. We’ll have better programs for our kids, but we’ll be left with crumbling, inefficient facilities that at some point must be dealt with. Interest rates are extremely low right now and even a quarter-point bump in interest rates will mean millions more in cost, if we delay. Our kids deserve better. Delaying these inevitable projects is akin to not getting that filling replaced – when you finally go in, it ends up being a crown and costs many times more. Our schools perceived level of performance affects all of us. Olympic Medical Center can’t fill open physician positions because doctors want better schools for their own kids. I’ll be voting for the bond. I encourage you to also. Colleen McAleer Sequim (McAleer is a Port of Port Angeles commissioner)

The past two Saturdays I spent a few hours doorbelling in neighborhoods in support of the upcoming school bond. I don’t like doorbelling, in fact, there are about 12 million things I would rather be doing, but I went doorto-door because I know how important the school bond is to the future of our community and our school system. Most people I talk to are not aware that there are four high school teachers who don’t have classrooms and float from class to class. I share my room with one of those teachers and so I prepare and grade for my classes in a book closet. It isn’t just that our schools are crowded (Washington schools rank 47th in class size) it is that many of our

Why in the world would I vote for the Sequim school bonds? I’m in my seventies and have no children or grandchildren in the Sequim schools. If the bond issue wins, my property taxes go up. Does it make sense for me to support the school bonds? Still, I thought I’d do some research to be sure the facts support my decision. The first thing I discovered is that many of the school facilities are falling apart and are outdated. In the long run, rising maintenance and rental costs likely are to exceed the amortized cost of the bonds. Second, some of the facilities are overcrowded. There is only space for half-day kindergarten classes. The problem is the state has mandated full-time classes

by 2018 while leaving it to local districts to find the space. Third, the current facilities are unsafe. The elementary schools have dozens of doors that open outward and it is virtually impossible to prevent intruders from entering classrooms. A second danger is the potential for a massive earthquake to hit the area. Should such a quake occur while the schools are in session, can you imagine the tragedy that would result if the school facilities are not updated and make earthquake resistant? Let’s talk dollars and cents. Now is the ideal time to pass a bond issue. Interest rates are low, but are likely to rise in the future. Construction costs also will go up. With the state constantly mandating facilities upgrades, it makes sense to act today to take advantage of this window of low costs. One final point. Each of us is faced with a question: In what type of community do we want to live? To a large extent our schools define our community. Those districts that take pride in their schools and provide adequate financing to ensure their children have broad educational opportunities, enjoy many benefits. They attract young professionals such as physicians and managers. New business firms are attracted to the area and property values rise. Beyond these advant ages there is a shared feeling of pride in the community that is reflected in our attitudes and sense of well-being. After reviewing the facts, I am convinced it would be foolish not to vote for the Sequim school bonds. I hope



We should be ashamed that we have not been paying enough taxes! The Citizens for Sequim Schools and our school board continue to reference that our proposed new local tax rate ($3.85) is lower than the state average. This thinking is consistent with the “tax and spend” belief that we are not spending beyond our means, but rather that we are not taxed enough. Therefore, an 80 percent increase in our district’s tax rate is perfectly reasonable. Of course this is all about tax rates, not actual spending per student. It also ignores the fact that our median household income is well below the state average. Does anyone really believe that we are under-taxed? I don’t. Jerry Sinn Sequim

buildings have reached the end of their lifespan and have to be replaced. There isn’t going to be a better time. Interest rates are low, building costs are low, and all-day kindergarten is going to force the district to expand. I hear people who oppose the bond say that it is too much, it should be done in pieces and that we should wait for a better time. There isn’t a better time; each piece of the project is necessary, and even after the bond passes the tax rates in Sequim will be far below the state average. Strong, vibrant communities need strong, vibrant schools, please support your community and vote yes for your schools. Jon Eekhoff Sequim (Eekhoff is a teacher at Sequim High School)

July 8, 1932 - April 2, 2014

Dale S. Robirts, 81, passed away on April 2, 2014 at Olympic Medical Center He was born on July 8, 1932, in St. Maries, Idaho, to Franklin Robirts and Ola Lenoch. He attended school in St. Maries. He joined the Navy in 1950. On December 22, 1951, he married LaRue Bedwell in Pocatello, Idaho. He retired from Kaiser Aluminum Chemical Corp after 30 years and put in 30 years with the Navy and Navy Reserves as a Seabee. He was active with Little League, Boy Scouts of America and PTA. He was also a volunteer at the Sequim Visitor Center for 15 years. His hobbies included restoring cars, making miniature wooden construction toys, fishing, and camping. He was the winner of the Top Pop contest in 1966 in Spokane, Wash. He is survived by his wife, LaRue; sons, Frank, of Greenacres, Wash., Deyel (April), of Spokane Valley, Wash.; daughters, Patricia (Bruce) Thomas, of Everett, Wash., Sherie (Larry) Wenzel, of Sacramento, Calif., and Holly Robirts, of Sequim. He is also survived by his brother, John, of Buhl, Idaho; nine grandchildren and 10 great-grandchildren. He was preceded in death by his son, Andrew; and brother, Woodrow; and his parents. He was a member of St. Joseph’s Catholic Church in Sequim. At his request there will be no service.


From page A-9 one important way that communities show civic pride and there is no more important place to improve a community than to invest in its kids. Often, however, to live in place as desirable as Sequim, it takes some sacrifice. Our schools are an integral part of our community. Its buildings are not only used by the students but by community members as well, one example is the Peninsula Trails Coalition’s Traveller’s Journal Series use of the high school cafeteria for its presentations. In a small way, I compare this bond to the decision people often face when having to buy a new car. My wife and I have a minivan we keep trying to keep on the road, but at what point do we “bitethe-bullet” and move on? We’ve been doing this with our schools for too long and it’s time move to something newer, otherwise we will keep putting money into a failing car. It will cost us how much more if we fail to do it now? Paul Pinza Sequim (Pinza is a teacher at Sequim Middle School)

As a member of the medical community, I can attest to the fact that medical professionals consider the quality of the school system to be a very high priority when choosing a place to live and raise their families. As a physician, I feel that the availability of these medical services locally is critical to the health of my patients. Many of our community members have neither the financial nor physical ability to make trips to Seattle for medical care. I am also the mother of a student, currently a junior, at Sequim High School. I have seen firsthand the deplorable conditions of the campus. I applaud the educators, staff and administration for the good job they are doing in spite of the challenges we as a community have given them. As a concerned and fairly reluctant taxpayer, I was unwilling to lend my support to this issue until I attended the very informative open meetings that were held on many occasions to educate the public regarding the condition of our schools. I am now aware that renovation of the existing facility would be more costly than starting fresh. I learned much about en-

The information was presented in a clear and concise manner with abundant opportunities for discussion. The research for hospital and medical settings parallels that of school settings. Clean, quiet, safe environments help achieve positive outcomes. After thinking carefully about all of the possible solutions to our crisis situation, I am convinced that passage of the bond is necessary for the future of Sequim. While I will not have a student in the school system at the time these plans come to fruition, I feel it is my duty to my patients, their families and the greater community to vote yes on the school bond issue.

Outgoing MAC staffers deserve kudos I was greatly dismayed at the recent Museum & Arts Center coverage (“A museum meltdown,” page A-1, Sequim Gazette, April 2), mostly because of what wasn’t mentioned. Being a MAC member of several years, I attended the annual membership meeting in January that began as a one-sided shouting match by several men who are now on the Board of Trustees.

Emily Jane Kinkley of Basking Ridge, N.J., died on March 27, 2014, at age 95. She was born in Middletown, Ohio, to Arthur L. and Marjorie E. (Starkey) Robinson. After receiving a bachelor’s degree in education at Miami University, Oxford, Ohio, she taught in the early 1940s at Roosevelt Junior High School, Middletown, Ohio, where she met Harold Vernon Kinkley (1917-2002), a fellow teacher. They married in 1944. After World War II, Emily and Harold moved to Champaign, Ill., and in 1983 to Sequim, Wash. Emily moved to New Jersey in 2002. In Champaign-Urbana, Emily was a devoted mother, den mother, and board member of the Cunningham Children’s Home; in Sequim, an active member of the P.E.O. Sisterhood; in Bernardsville and Basking Ridge, a volunteer in the Healthy Bones program of the Senior Wellness Center. Survivors include her sons, Jeffrey (Susan) Kinkley of Millington, N.J., and Gregg (Laura) Kinkley, of Honolulu, Hawaii; and two grandchildren. Emily was preceded in death by her sisters, Robin Coddington, of Middletown, Ohio, and Marjorie Louise Roosa, of Laguna Woods, Calif. A memorial service will be held April 9, 11:00 a.m., at the Rowe-Lanterman Home for Funerals in Morristown, N.J. In lieu of flowers, the family recommends donations to the Somerset County Senior Wellness Center or the Community FoodBank of New Jersey.

engage in such blatant bullying and belligerence – it was a disgrace. In spite of that appalling behavior, then-Executive Director DJ Bassett and then-Board Vice President Priscilla Hudson maintained their professionalism and decorum, just as they and their outgoing staff and volunteers are doing now. The fact that all staff and most volunteers, including longstanding board members, have exited the MAC rather than work with this new board speaks volumes. As a member, I want to personally thank Bassett and his staff and volunteers for their years of time, effort and hard work in making the MAC something we should all be proud of – a welcoming, professionallevel museum. The Exhibit Center was transformed into a flourishing and friendly place full of interesting and fresh history exhibits, and the monthly artist receptions always were a treat. The MAC’s history programs at the beautiful Dungeness Schoolhouse, especially the most recent series, were stellar. I also have greatly enjoyed reading the many history articles, email newsletters, and other correspondence that kept us members informed. It all appeared so seamless, which is a credit to Bassett and the extraordinary team he assembled. Kudos to them. Lorraine Kost Sequim

‘Land’ man gets honor

Jon Purnell, Clallam PUD’s Utility Systems Land Agent, recently was recognized as the 2013 Washington “Land Surveyor of the Year.” According to the Land Surveyors’ Association of Washington’s website, the title “Surveyor of the Year” is awarded annually to the one individual who, by assessment of his or her peers, has contributed the most to the surveying profession as a whole over the past five years. The association includes more than 800 licensed surveyor members and the award is the profession’s most prestigious state level award. Purnell was honored with the award at the 2014 annual LSAW conference in early March. Each year, the 12 local association chapters submit nominations for the award. At the fall statewide meeting, chapter and state-level officers review the nominations and vote, via secret ballot, to choose a recipient. “Receiving this award makes one reflect upon what being a professional person really means,” Purnell said. “In the surveying profession, we are obligated to serve the public interest in an objective an unbiased manner first and foremost. Professionals also have a responsibility to assist those who aspire to professional licensure attain their goals, while passing on the values of the profession. These responsibilities I feel keenly now more than ever.” See

What do members of our community have to say about local support for your schools? “Most people I talk to are not aware that there are four high school teachers who don’t have classrooms. I share my room with one of those teachers and so I prepare and grade for my classes in a book closet.” – Jon Eekhoff “My entire High School career I was involved in the Choir and Theater departments, and I loved every minute of it but there are problems with our facilities … the programs are thriving and growing and the classrooms simply cannot accommodate the numbers of students joining the programs.” – Sarah Stoffer “The student population is expected to rise, driven in part by a new State mandate for all-day kindergarten. The current facilities cannot accommodate these new students within existing classrooms. The bond addresses this need and builds classrooms under one roof instead of growing the number of temporary portable buildings.” – Jon Jack “The security issues alone that exist at our elementary and high schools can only be brought up to the acceptable standards by building new secure facilities. How can providing adequate security for our schools’ students ever be too expensive?” – John Lovett “Is there a reason not to make schools efficient, safe, and secure? Our permanent school buildings are built for the functions of the 1970s and temporary portables should not be permanent.” – Bertha Cooper “The longer we wait, the higher the cost for both repairs and new construction.” – Patsy Mattingley “I am convinced that passage of the bond is necessary for the future of Sequim. While I will not have a student in the school system at the time these plans come to fruition, I feel it is my duty to my patients, their families and the greater community to vote yes on the school bond issue.” – Dr. Rena Zimmerman “The decision we make now as taxpayers whether to invest in our town’s future with this school construction bond will be a decisive move positively or negatively. We are truly at a crossroads.” – Craig Stevenson “Financing all of the construction needs in one bond is a proactive approach that takes advantage of the historically low interest rates and will save the community and taxpayers a significant amount of money over the longer term.” – John Cambalik & Dana Woodruff “Interest rates are extremely low right now and even a ¼ point bump in interest rates will mean millions more in cost, if we delay. Delaying these inevitable projects is akin to not getting that filling replaced – when you finally go in, it ends up being a crown and costs many times more. I’ll be voting for the bond. I encourage you to also.” – Colleen McAleer, Port Commissioner “Public investments improve our quality of life and support our economy. Can you image Sequim without the SARC, the Highway 101 bypass, John Wayne Marina, and the Sequim OMC campus? These large public investments have made Sequim a more desirable place to live. Improved school facilities will lure more families (including physicians) to Sequim. Our local economy will benefit from this public investment in our schools.” – Eric Lewis, Olympic Medical Center CEO “What do you think is the best type of investment? Stocks, bonds, mutual funds, real estate? WRONG. The best investment we can make is in our community and particularly our schools.” – Lee Bowen “We have come to a point in our lives that requires a choice that thinks seven generations down the road; it is time to begin rebuilding and improving our educational facilities, to provide a 21st century learning environment for our students, to create a community that will attract and retain new businesses and healthcare professionals, and to create an energized economy.” – W. Ron Allen, Tribal Chairman/CEO, Jamestown S’Klallam Tribe “Supporting our children and our schools is the investment with the biggest payback of all.” – Mary Morgan “When my wife and I talk about supporting this bond we always come back to the fact that we moved to this community because it supports its schools. We are proud of this fact. The state of its schools is one important way that communities show civic pride and there is no more important place to improve a community than to invest in its kids.” – Paul Pinza “I do strongly urge a YES vote for the bond, and please ask yourself this one question ‘If not now when?’ as it is only a matter of time before all these facility improvements have to be addressed.” – Phil Castell “I strongly urge you to vote Yes for Sequim Schools on April 22nd! This will capture state school construction matching dollars and most important, will give our children the tools and space they need to get the vital education that Sequim Schools provide.” – Kevin Van De Wege, State Representative Paid upgrade for by Citizens for school Sequim Schools, P.O. Boxbecause 2634, Sequim, 98382 “I support a bond initiative to build and the buildings myWAexperience has shown me that the For more information go to current job market is more competitive than ever, and high school graduates need the best foundation possible to compete.” – Chris R. Karapostoles “I have lived in Sequim for more than twenty years; I have never had children or grandchildren in Sequim schools. However, I believe it is my responsibility as a citizen to provide secure public schools and educational opportunities-offering students the education that will serve them whatever their career plans.” – Jim Pickett “I’m proud that I grew up in Sequim, a community that cares. I’m grateful for my training and growth in Sequim schools. And I’m hopeful that the citizens of Sequim are still invested in its children. Let’s prepare them to make a positive impact on the world by making this commitment to our shared future.” – Holly Golden “Vote yes on the Sequim bond issue. We need to challenge and equip all the youngsters following in our footsteps.” – Tim Wheeler “I feel it is our fundamental duty to support our local school district by voting for the bond levy. As John Adams, one of our nations leading founding fathers wrote over 230 years ago, “Whole people must take upon themselves the education of the whole people and must be willing to bear the expenses of it.”.” – Steve Tharinger, State Representative “We as a community have an opportunity to rebuild a broken down, outdated school facility. A yes vote means future generations will be supported by a modern educational system that we can all be proud of for decades to come. Please join us in voting yes for Sequim schools.”– Conn and Virginia O’Neil

Ten tips for decluttering before you move

Declutter lady Brenda Spandrio

Through her avatar, Zinnia Zauber (in orange), Renne Brock-Richmond attends a real-time international meeting of people who work with nonprofit organizations. She also meets with Peninsula College students in a virtual classroom she created in Second Life.

shadow, wearing chic outfits in hues of the red-yellow spectrum. She teaches, makes conference presentations, sells her art and clothing and attends meetings — all online. Zinnia Zauber’s real-life incarnation is Renne Brock-Richmond — with her dark bob, orange eyeshadow and stylish outfits in the red-yellow range — who teaches, makes conference presentations, produces marketing materials, sells her art and clothing and attends meetings from her base in Sequim. For Brock-Richmond, a member of the first graduation class of the University of Washington’s Certificate in Virtual Worlds program in 2009, the virtual realm represents far more than a pastime. It is a place to see the world, meet new people, do business, exchange ideas and create a sense of self.

An ancient word with contemporary applications, “avatar” in Sanskrit means “incarnation,” as in the earthly form of a deity. In the blockbuster movie, of course, it’s a lithe, blue, long-tailed being who is out to save planet Pandora. On Facebook, it’s the little photo or icon that represents each user; in online games, it’s a character whose actions represent the choices of a player. An avatar — an online stand-in for a real-life person — also can be a virtual way of getting on with the business of real life. Zinnia Zauber, for example, swirls through Virtual basics Whether they take part in “massively multivirtual realms such as Second Life with her trademark dark bobbed hair and orange eye- player online games” (MMOGs) such as “World

Whether or not you are planning to move in the near future, decluttering is a wise exercise. Not only is it the first step toward improving the value and salability of your home, but paring down your belongings can help reduce the cost of relocating. And if you don’t plan to move any time soon, you can gain space in your current home in order to enjoy where you live now more fully. Decluttering NOW also gives you a jumpstart on creating more organized space in your new home and simply makes it easier to unpack. If you are at a loss where to start, try these ten easy areas first: • Expired food and medications. You know you’re not going to use this stuff, so dump it now. Donate food items that have not expired – but you know you’ll never use — to a local food pantry. • Items still in the boxes from the last time you moved. Do you really want to pay to move this stuff again? Schedule time to quickly go through the boxes to make sure there is no “buried treasure” and let the rest go either to a local charity or the trash. • Unfinished projects.  If you are no longer knitting, donate your yarn stash to a worthy cause; give (or sell) your model railroad set to a local club. Don’t spend any more space, time or money on hobbies or projects that don’t bring you joy. • Magazines and books.  Everyone has reading material that they have no intention of rereading. Donate these appropriately; keeping in mind that even local libraries won’t take everything. • Gifts you’ve never used. Donate these things rather than allowing them to continue taking up valuable space in your home. You can honestly tell the person who originally gave an item to you that you passed it on to someone who absolutely loved it – even if you don’t know who it is! • Toss newspapers that are over a week old.  Cut out that special article or recipe (or better yet,

One of Sequim’s youngest virtuoso violinists Kate Powers, 14, takes center stage at the latest Music Live with Lunch. Playing since 2010, Powers plays at noon Tuesday, April 15, in St. Luke’s Episcopal Church, 525 N. Fifth Ave. She began in the Washington Old Time Fiddlers in a scholarship program with violin lessons from Mary Moon. Through that, Powers said she grew to love fiddling. “I was able to hear the music in my head and I was able to allow it to come out of my fingers,” she said.

Her upcoming performance includes several numbers including “Blackberry Festival Footrace” by David Fisher, “Josefin’s Waltz” by Roger Tallroth and “Hot Club D’ecosse” by Alasdair Fraser. Powers is a member of the Port Angeles Symphony Orchestra, Washington Old Time Fiddlers Association, a local youth band called the Young Fiddlers and she’s been taking classical lessons in the Seattle area. Her goal is to be one of the best violinists in the world. Music Live with Lunch was founded 23 years ago by Lou and Bill Yandell as an outreach program to the community by St. Luke’s. Concerts continue the third Tuesday of each month with a hot lunch in the parish hall at 12:30 p.m. Advance tickets are available at the church office 9 a.m.-1 p.m. Monday-Thursday or at the door. Call the office at 683-4862.

Note from the author: Decluttering for a move is currently on my mind because, dear Sequim community, The Declutter Lady herself is relocating out of state. It has been a privilege to work with so many of you and your kind support has been deeply appreciated.

Q Above, after a stroll through an online Berlin of the 1920s, an avatar stops for a snapshot of the Brandenburg Gates, the statue of Frederick the Great and a passing airship. The beer advertisement and the Nazi propaganda poster at left are typical of the level of detail built into many virtual environments. Below, Renne Brock-Richmond and her avatar, Zinnia Zauber.


From page B-1 with others in a game; inhabit a fantasy or historical world; or simply socialize by typing chat messages or speaking into a microphone. The level of action and involvement is up to the user. The virtual world inhabited by young professionals such as Brock-Richmond/ Zauber is unlike typical multiplayer games, in which the surroundings and even many characters have been programmed by the game’s developers. “The environment of Second Life,” said BrockRichmond, “is 90 percent built by residents (people who use Second Life).” Brock Richmond used “prims” (primitive virtual building blocks) to create airy and colorful environments, including a virtual classroom for her Peninsula College multimedia students and a hip cattery with 20 prowling felines.

Getting a (second) life Creating an avatar in Second Life is easy enough and it’s free. Download a program, agree to terms of use and pick one of the sample avatars presented. Take a walk through fantasy, history or time. Stop and chat with other residents by writing notes or speaking into a microphone. Join a group. Meet new friends. Create art. Shop. Make things happen. Like an online pharaoh’s tomb, everything that is required for real life shows up in Second Life. Purchases are made in Linden dollars

($L), which can be bought with and exchanged into actual money. Most experienced users find themselves tweaking their avatars, using Linden dollars to purchase their preferred wardrobes and hairstyles. Brock-Richmond, a fiber artist in the real world, has created her own virtual boutique, “hueareyou,” to market the virtual clothing she designs for avatars. And it isn’t just for players: Apple has an “in-world” store in Second Life, too.

In-world training Users learn to manipulate the keyboard to enable the avatar to walk, run, jump, fly and gesture. From then on, the world is their virtual oyster. Environments range from sketchy to superlative. Jo Yardley of Berlin, for example, has created a strikingly detailed environment representing Berlin in the 1920s, complete with shops, theaters, trams, dirigibles and even homeless veterans of World War I begging in the streets. There are rules of play in

Second Life, just as in the old mundane life. Certain environments, like Yardley’s Berlin, require avatars to dress the part and adopt the customs and manners of the environment. On a more general level, residents who make trouble for others in Second Life are called “grievers” and can be blocked from interacting with other avatars at a player’s request. “Because it looks like a game, people dismiss it,” said Brock-Richmond. “But I hope that changes as people realize that the other avatars they meet are, in fact, real people.”

The useful metaverse Just as an in-world run-in with a nasty avatar can cause real irritation, the virtual world, aka “metaverse,” also can be used to shape the real world in a positive way by providing a virtual experience of real-life sites and situations. The San Jose State nursing program, for example, has created a virtual walkthrough human heart to teach students about cardiac function. The school also programs sample virtual situations that might occur in an emergency room, so that students can move through the virtual crisis, and respond. The U.S. military looks to the virtual world to help develop scenarios for training. Brock-Richmond has presented at a virtual meeting of the National Defense University. Troops can develop avatars with specific stances, features and authenticity. It’s

possible to work out issues of strategy or interpersonal communication in the virtual world to make soldiers aware of what they might meet with among civilians in a given area of combat.The military uses Second life to train leaders how to engage groups for work. Virtual support groups for PTSD can supplement actual groups; troops can receive virtual counseling, including for substance abuse. Tanya Lewis of livescience. com recently reported that neuroscientists from the University of California-San Diego demonstrated the “glass brain,” at the South by Southwest Interactive Festival in March. The technique uses virtual reality, brain scanning and brain recording to show activity in a person’s brain in real time. Though in its infancy, the technique might yield therapeutic as well as research benefits. Educational institutions have begun to use virtual worlds to be accessible to students outside the campus area, an update of the concept of distance education.

For-profit, nonprofit Marketing gets a big virtual boost as well. Aloft Hotels, for example, put prototypes of spaces proposed for its future hotels into Second Life to get residents’ responses to the layouts, furnishings and ambiance. Later Aloft donated one of the “sims” (simulated environments) as a Second Life meeting place for the Nonprofit Commons, where people who work for nonprofits from local arts groups to educational institutions and government agencies can meet in the virtual world to discuss real issues: taxes, paperwork, marketing, fundraising. Brock-Richmond attends regular meetings at the Nonprofit Commons. Like realword meetings, there are presentations and demonstrations. Unlike the real-world meeting, participants can chat with each other as well as the group at large without disrupting the meeting. At a recent meeting of the Nonprofit Commons, BrockRichmond/Zauber joined about 20 representatives from locales as far-flung as Indiana, the Netherlands and France to discuss nonprofit issues: how public libraries can train young people to be safe online; how nonprofits can raise funds; what tax problems nonprofits may face.





Brock-Richmond soon will be presenting at the Virtual Worlds Best Practices in Education Conference, April 9-12, which will meet online in Second Life or Open Simulator Grid. Researchers, teachers and tech companies will discuss the history, benefits and uses of virtual worlds. The conference is an example of a “massively online open classroom” (MOOC). Anyone can “attend” at no cost by creating an avatar and “teleporting” to the VWBPE Gateway. For more information, visit

Random Questions With Kim McDougal For almost a year, Kim McDougal has been the namesake behind Blondie’s Plate, 134 S. Second Ave. McDougal was born and raised in Forks and moved to Seattle at 18 where she went on to work mostly in management positions before she determined serving food was her passion. While she’s never been called Blondie in her life, McDougal said, she didn’t want to be lim& ited by one genre in a name. “We specialize in small plates,” she said. “It’s how I like to eat. I like to share and have one of everything.” McDougal said she and her husband, Rick McDougal, owner of H20 Plumbing, bought a house 10 years ago on Bell Street with the intention of opening a restaurant. It would’ve been called Blondie’s on Bell, but they abandoned the idea when the economy went sour. However, the opportunity to open Blondie’s Plate later opened up.



Question 11: What is a guilty pleasure of yours? McDougal: I watch “Real Housewives” on Bravo. My husband was watching it one day and I got pulled in. It’s bad! Question 14: Who would you most like to buy dinner for? McDougal: I admire Oprah the most. I think we’d have a good conversation and I

Brilliant Traces

by Cindy Lou Johnson

Through interviews with tribal citizens who use modern methods to fish, hunt and gather, and those who remember the old ways, juxtaposed with historical photographs and explanatory narrative, this film reconnects viewers to the cycles of nature which allowed indigenous people to thrive through the millennia. “Legacy of Our Ancestors: Treaty Resources of the Jamestown S’Klallam Tribe” was conceived by Holden, chairman of the tribe’s Natural Resources Committee, and filmed by Bergstein with financial support from Jamestown S’Klallam Tribal Council. Holden and Bergstein interviewed tribal fishers, hunters and gatherers. The documentary will also be shown at 7 p.m. tonight, April 9, at Quimper Unitarian Universalist Fellowship in Port Townsend, and 7 p.m. on April 10 at the Jefferson County Library in Port Hadlock.

evening for the North Olympic Peninsula Mountaineers. “It’s hard. I get really tired,” he said, “but I still have time to do homework, though.” Why does Moroles and 19 other Sequim and Port Angeles boys play lacrosse? Dave Farrington, Mountaineers’ high school coach, said the sport can be addicting. “(It’s) the action, the finesse. It’s just fun!” Farrington said. Moroles said when he was invited to a lacrosse camp with friend Ryan Root, the team’s goalie, he didn’t like it at first. “It’s hard to catch (the ball),” Moroles joked. “But it grew on me.” Mountaineers’ newcomer Dusty West of Chimacum has been playing lacrosse since sixth grade but for just three weeks for the team since moving from Friday Harbor. With limited options for teams, West said he must make a 70-mile roundtrip trek every weekday for practice. The most experienced player on the team, West said the Mountaineers are a work in progress. “They just need more time,” West said.

Little League could use your help I am writing this article to thank the dedicated corps of volunteers that selflessly give their time and resources to ensure that the youth of our community are provided with a safe, fun and healthy outlet that teaches responsibility, teamwork and obviously good sportsmanship. The hours a nd ef for t that it takes for such an undertaking can be taxing, if you ask Guest but any volunteer Opinion and/or board Garin Williams member how they do it, I’m sure you’ll receive the same response; we do it for the kids. The Sequim Little League operates solely on the hard work of parents, volunteers and local businesses that share the same mission for the kids of the community. We (Sequim Little League) strive to provide the parents and kids a memorable experience while involved with our program and we are honored that parents and families trust that we will provide a positive atmosphere for their children to thrive. This is an awesome responsibility that no board member or volunteer takes lightly. In order to continue to provide a quality product for our kids, we are constantly challenged to maintain our facility and gear. We recently suffered a devastating blow that has set us back a bit. We have discovered that our equipment space has been invaded by rodents. The equipment stored in this space is the protective gear that players utilize to play the game of baseball and softball. Some of the equipment was destroyed completely and the entire space was filled with rodent droppings. We (the Little League board) refused to issue any gear from this particular space. The board is now faced with the daunting task of replacing much (or all) of the protective equipment stored in this space. New equipment has been ordered, but we (the league) did not have the funds to replace all of the equipment. The board has reached out to neighboring leagues (Port Townsend Little League and East Jefferson Little League) for assistance. Not surprisingly, both leagues have offered any assistance, and/or equipment needs that we have. The SLL board is asking the community we serve to assist us in making lifelong memories for boys and girls in our community by donating time, materials or cash donations. We have set up an account at First Federal for cash donations. You can inquire about this account at any First Federal branch. Volunteering labor and materials also is greatly appreciated. We want to provide a venue that families take pride in when they watch their children having fun and learning. For opportunities to volunteer, please see our website, or find us on Facebook. In our quest to deliver the best product for our kids, we must express our sincere gratitude to the Olympic View Community Foundation. This group of caring, concerned citizens provided SLL with a very generous donation that is giving us a head start on acquiring new equipment for these great kids. It’s so exciting to realize that there is an organization that shares the same vision for our kids and steps up to help them out, we are extremely grateful. Sequim Little League serves about 220 players on 18 baseball/softball teams. If you have questions about how you can assist us in our goal of supporting our youth, please visit our website or Facebook page, or feel free to contact me directly. Garin Williams is president of the Sequim Little League.

Growing squads

Brocklesby, SHS grad, excels at decathalon

From page B-5 For those not in the know, lacrosse is a team game using sticks with pockets to carry a rubber ball that players use to score on an opponents’ goal. It is a contact sport that sees players don protective gear, passing the ball between each other while defenders try to capture or knock the ball away. This year, the Mountaineers have three teams: a high school boys team (0-2 record), middle school boys team (2-1) and a high school girls team (1-3). Both boys teams host games at Agnew Field this Saturday, April 12, starting at noon, with the high school teams facing Auburn Riverside — one of the best Division-I teams in the state — and the middle school squad hosting Tacoma. The Mountaineers’ girls travel to Wenatchee to play two games, against Stadium JV and Gonzaga JV, both on the same day. Farrington said a rule change made things much tougher for their squads this year. Half of their schedule is split between Division I and II teams; The Mountaineers are a much smaller DivisionII team. Farrington said the matchup with Auburn Riverside will be tough, but said his team played well against Emerald Ridge-Puyallup in a 15-5 loss. Moroles said it’s been rough playing Division-I teams, but that the team’s goal is to win all their Division-II games. “It’s possible,” Moroles said. “Hopefully we’ll win three or four.”

lowed it up with a second win on March 22 over PuyallupWhite, 12-3. Head coach Lee Biladeau said it was their first win in the team’s three years of existence. “The kids have worked hard,” he said. “Lacrosse is a hard sport to grasp in two years. It’s our first year of retention with some three year players and a few two year players.” Ada m DeFilippo, a Sequim eighth-grader, said this is his third year and that he learned the game’s basics from his sister’s friend who was on the high school team. “He brought over a lacrosse stick and we tossed a ball around in the front yard,” DeFilippo said. “He taught me how to hit and box out and then I became a defender.” DeFilippo and a several other eighth-graders move up next year, which organizers say will balloon the high school team so big that they likely will form a junior varsity squad.

Building a program Sharon Prosser, president of the Mountaineers board, said team officials are continuing to find ways to recruit new players, whether its through efforts by girls head




coach Erik Mordecai-Smith, a school resource officer in Port Angeles High School, or other area coaches like Erik Wiker, Sequim High football coach, who allowed the Mountaineers to setup at the football team’s banquet. Prosser said recruiting mostly comes from word of mouth from players though. While the Washington Interscholastic Activities Association doesn’t recognize lacrosse as a middle/high school sport, Mountaineers program coordinator Karl Wood said team officials and others continue to try and convince people of its legitimacy locally. Wood said they’ve spoken with several other sports’ coaches and athletic directors about why lacrosse needs to be here. “It presents a good alternative, but some people have a concern we’re competing for the same athletes,” Wood said. “For example, I have a son with ADHD and if he was running track, he’d be sitting around two-thirds of the time at a track meet. I don’t think a coach would want that. So having more options is a benefit to the high schools.” An integral part for the Mountaineers to grow, Wood

said, is developing fifth- and sixth-grade teams for boys and girls. The Mountaineers’ practice in February and their seasons typically go through mid-May. Sometimes the teams participate in camps and special games in the summer. For more information on the Mountaineers, visit

Seattle Optometrist Helps LEGALLY BLIND to See!

Just because you have macular degeneration (or other vision-limiting conditions) doesn’t always mean you must give up driving or reading.

I learned that germs spit the acid and it dissolves the teeth. So I need to brush each tooth 10 times for two times each day. Brendan Kuh I liked the filling material. I learned the filling material is sticky and then gets hard with the blue light. Gabriel Wakefield I liked when Harry the Horse spit out water. I learned that when we get a hole in our tooth the sticky stuff is put in to fill it and then the light makes it hard. Maddy Cogburn I liked the X-ray. I learned that I need to brush each tooth 10 times. Sterling Rowland I liked the X-ray. I learned if you don’t brush your teeth there will be bugs (bacteria) and you will get cavities. Frank Johnson I liked the headlights on the drills. I learned I should start brushing my teeth instead of tricking my mom and dad. Keira Morey I liked Harry squirting water. That was not polite.

The Student Scene: How do the rules of nature compare to the rules of man?

Some laws of nature are gravity, when you put your hand on a hot stove it will burn, the phases of the moon, when the seasons occur, etc. Laws of man are no chewing gum in school, no breaking into people’s homes, no wearing hats in school and no bringing guns onto airplanes. The difference between the law of nature and the law of man is the law of man can be changed. Like you can start jones a petition to get gum back at your school. The law of nature you cannot change — if you jump out of an airplane, you are going to hit the ground. — Shelby Jones

The rules of nature and the rules of man are similar in some aspects but overall, different. For example, you cannot possibly break a rule of nature — time, gravity, survival, etc. But rules of man are put in place to protect people from potential danger. They are similar because they both have serious consequences if they are not davis followed. For instance, if you don’t drink water for 30 days, you are breaking a rule of nature and you will die. If you are drinking and driving, you are breaking a rule of man and you go to jail. There always are consequences to your actions. — Kaitlyn Davis

The difference between the laws of man and the laws of nature are distinct. A few examples of the laws of man are do not steal, do not run a red light, do not litter. A few examples of the laws of nature are things that are in motion tend to stay in motion, two objects are attracted to each other, no matter their mass and gravity. The difference between the laws of man berg and laws of nature is that laws of man may be broken; it is possible to steal, while laws of nature cannot; it is impossible to avoid gravity. — Addie Berg

The rules of man compared to the rules of nature are, for example, the rules of man: You can’t steal, litter, murder people and run a red light. Examples of rules of nature are what goes up must come down, if you put your hand in fire, you are bound to get burned, things that are in motion, tend to stay in motion and gravity. The difference between the rules lato of man and nature are that the rules of man are made by the people and can be changed; the rules of nature are natural and cannot be changed. — Jessica Lato

The laws of nature include gravity and if you don’t eat for two months, you die. The laws of man are that in Washington you aren’t allowed to litter, in other places you are. Some men want to live forever, but nature says that someday, you must die. No escaping death. The laws of nature say that time keeps going, it never stops and you can’t go back in time. However, some men believe in time travel and are norman working toward it every day. The laws of nature and men work with and against each other in many ways. — Abby Norman The laws of nature are laws that cannot be changed. Nature’s laws are a constant. Nature’s laws includes what goes up must come down and the facts that if you don’t breathe, drink water and eat, you will die. The laws of man are not constant, they always are changing. Laws of man include water rights, rules of schools, rules of land and land ownership, and many rules that people don’t use perryman anymore. The laws of nature are laws that no one can change, but man’s laws always are being changed. That is the difference between the two different laws. — Treva Perryman



From Steve Boots’ eighthgrade U.S. history class

The difference between man and nature is that you cannot change nature. Like for instance, if you are on a boat in the middle of the ocean … and you sink, you probably will die. But the law of man can be changed. But people most of the time don’t follow the laws gauthun like people texting and driving. They do it all the time and nothing happens. You can’t change or break the law of nature. — Tea Gauthun Laws of nature cannot be changed. Try as you might, you will not succeed. However people try to bypass the laws. Gravity says we fall down and yet people still try to fly. Nature says t hat we need to eat but people still choose not to eat. Nature says we need water but man says you have to pay a dollar mitchell for it. Nature says we need things but man says we need to earn them. Nature says we need fish, but man says we need to catch them. Laws of nature cannot be changed but we still try to change them. ­— Abe Mitchell

Karana, a 12-year-old girl, learns to survive on a deserted island in hopes that someone will come for her. We have used the story in a variety of ways during writing time, including creating an informational brochure of the island, writing a message in a bottle, writing expository pieces about the animals found around the island and an assignment where students were given the prompt: If you had to survive on a deserted island for years without knowing if you’d ever be saved, what would you do to survive? The class was broken into five groups and asked to connect to the story and think about how they would survive as 9-year-olds. Here is a sample from Group One (Bishop Budnek, Gabriella MatternHall and Wyatt Bryant): If we were stuck on an island alone without knowing if we’d ever be saved, we’d make a plan. Karana first tried to find shelter, so we’d find a place to keep up warm and dry or build something. After the shelter was built, we’d look for edible things on the island like abalones, white fish, clams, berries (but not poisonous ones) or greens. The next thing we’d do is look for fresh drinkable water, but not water from the sea because it has too much salt in it. Karana got water from the spring near the ravine, so we would check to see if the island

The two boys would be joyful because we’re best friends. All of us would want to get off the island and would be scared. In all, the island wouldn’t be a pleasurable experience for any of us. We would probably have a lot of bad things happen to us, but we would keep pushing away each day until we were found. We think Karana is a very brave girl and can’t imagine having to live what she lived for as long as she did.

We would need to learn how to make fire since nighttime would be cold. One member of our group could learn to make baskets from

yucca fibers or kelp. The baskets could be used to cook our food over the fire or we would heat rocks and put them in the baskets to cook our food like the Native Americans did long ago.

Sponsored by caring pet lovers. PORKY is a senior pit bull dog that arrived as a stray. He was nervous and defensive, and had evidence of orthopedic issues. He has done well, but might benefit from joint supplements as he ages. Porky has proven to be “dog selective” when it comes to socializing with other dogs. He also has an inclination to chase cats. Porky is a sweet old guy that is in need of a comfortable retirement home. PIE is a super nice girl! However, she appears to have had NO training at all! Pie is a very energetic and strong girl, she loves to be with people, but she will also pull those people around on a leash! Pie would do best with a hound experienced home. She is good with other dogs, but we don’t think she would live harmoniously with cats. Pie would probably be OK with older kids, and she will need LOTS of room to run!
