Community health is declining countywide, but partners of the freshly formed Healthy Community Coalition hope to reverse the trend starting with the SequimDungeness community. Annually Clallam County has fallen further down the list of the 39 Washington counties ranked by 70 community health indicators, like teen pregnancies, obesity and opiate use, Monica Dixon, a registered dietitian, health psychologist and Healthy Community Coalition co-chairman, said. In 2009, the county ranked 19th, but has fallen to 27th, according to the University Ryan Jewel, kitchen coordinator at the Carroll C.

Forecast predicts benefits of reservoir Sequim’s 2015 a record wet, warm year by ALANA LINDEROTH Sequim Gazette

Like most Washington cities Sequim was greatly impacted by the 2015 statewide drought and was among the first three regions declared drought stricken — yet, Sequim also experienced a record wet and warm year. Annual precipitation in Sequim jumped from its usual 16-17 inches to 23.07 inches, according to a 19802015 data set from Western Regional Climate Center. Record r a in fa ll a nd drought conditions don’t seem compatible, but when increased temperatures keep precipitation from freezing, it can have a significant impact. State officials declared drought on the Olympic Peninsula on March 13, when the snow water equivalent was at zero percent of its median at the Dungeness SNOTEL station, according to Natural Resources Conservation Service. The Dungeness SNOTEL station is one of four fully automated weather stations (SNOTEL) scattered among the Olympic Mountains used to gather data. “The drought was due to low snowpack,” Ann Soule, City of Sequim water resource specialist, said. “Summer snowmelt directly affects

A collaborative effort is underway to pursue a large site near River Road for an off-stream reservoir, anticipated to provide opportunities for stream flow restoration, outdoor recreation, infiltration, irrigation, wildlife and fish and stormwater management. Graphic courtesy of the City of Sequim

water supplies in streams and aquifers.” The average annual temp er at ure of 2015 was 50.97 degrees, Soule said — nearly o n e d e g re e SOULE warmer than the next warmest year within the past 35 years. Although the 2015 annual precipitation well exceeded the typical amount of annual rainfall in Sequim, much of the rain came after a warm, dry summer. During December, Sequim received more than 6 inches of rain, Soule reports, breaking yet another record for monthly rainfall since 1980.

The onset of precipitation late in 2015 recharged the flow of the Dungeness River, which had dropped throughout the summer given the lack of snowmelt and the diversion of water from its channel by SequimDungeness Valley irrigators from April 15-Sept. 15. Although the rainfall brought relief from the drought, it also puts strain on the drainage system for the City of Sequim. After and during storm events, stormwater runoff from the western Happy Valley area and Burnt Hill flows toward the city, entering a maze of irrigation ditches,

pipes and canals, including Bell Creek. “It really becomes a problem because so much of the runoff does eventually end up in Bell Creek and Bell Creek can just not handle it,” David Garlington, City of Sequim public works director, said. “It (Bell Creek) traverses the GARLINGTON ent ire cit y from the southwest corner to the northeast corner so there are multiple opportunities for it to be a headache for the city and residents of the city.” In areas where there’s a high water table, like Falcon Road, for example, located

southwest of Sequim, Soule said those areas “can’t take on too much more water after we’ve had enough rain in the fall.” “Every time a house goes up on Burnt Hill probably exacerbates this because there’s such a slope and impervious surfaces combined with slopes just generates tons of water,” she said. “I think the amount of water is only going to go up coming from development on Burnt Hill.” Already, flooding occurs throughout the city when the drainage system reaches its capacity. For example, Soule said, stormwater often overflows in three different places in Carrie Blake Park, covering a lot of the park area. To better manage stormwater, provide water storage for irrigation and thus divert less water from the Dungeness River when its flow is low, local and state water managers and stakeholders are pursuing an off-stream reservoir. Partners include officials with the Clallam Conservation District, Washington Water Trust, Department of Ecology, Department of Natural Resources, Department of Fish and Wildlife, Jamestown S’Klallam Tribe, Dungeness Water Users Association, Clallam County and City of Sequim. A proposed reservoir site, owned by the Department of Natural Resources off River Road, has been identified and preliminary planning efforts are underway.

Based on several design options the reservoir could range from 32-88 surface acres, with storage capacities from 550 to 1,586-acre feet. “To me the significance of that is it’s enough water to avoid diverting Dungeness River water for more than a month,” Soule said. The concept of a reservoir would be to divert early summer snowmelt from the nearby Dungeness River via existing irrigation canals, as well as capture stormwater runoff. Beyond providing a water supply for irrigators, reducing stormwater stress on the City of Sequim, the proposed reservoir could benefit fish, wildlife, provide recreational and infiltration opportunities. “We received a letter back from DRN indicating they were supportive of the concept,” Amanda Cronin, project manager with Washington Water Trust. DNR officials also indicated interest in doing a land exchange for timberland of comparable value, Garlington said. Early project cost estimates range from $20$40 million. To help apply for potential funding and show possible partners, engineers with an environmental consulting firm Anchor QEA of Seattle is developing a formal proposal on the reservoir project, Cronin said. However, given the scope and costs of the project, Cronin predicts a long road ahead with no set timeline just yet. “I do think the unprecedented drought is catalyst for driving new ideas like this,” she said. “2015 gave us a look at what conditions could look like in the future with climate change.”

The Sequim City Council is seeking applicants to fill two vacancies on the Parks and Recreation Advisory Board. This voluntary board meets once per month and advises the city council on issues involving city parks and public spaces. One term expires on June 30, 2016, and the other June 30, 2017. The positions are open to residents within the Sequim city limits. Applications are available at the Civic Center, 152 W. Cedar St., or online at www.sequimwa. gov. The positions are open until filled. For more information, contact parks manager Joe Irvin at 582-2457 or jirvin@sequimwa.gov.

KSQM 91.5 FM seeks ‘precious memories’

Bridge Revamped, Re-decked

Using a $100,000 donation from the First Federal Community Foundation, officials with the Jamestown S’Klallam Tribe are able to redo the decking on the historical Dungeness Railroad Bridge and adjoining ramp in Railroad Bridge Park. The often slippery and weakening wooden deck will be replaced with concrete — mirroring the newly built 750-foot steel trestle that connects to the bridge. Annette Nesse, Jamestown S’Klallam Tribe chief operating officer, and Powell Jones, Dungeness River Audubon Center executive director, accepted the donation by First Federal representatives Jan. 8. In preparation to adequately support the anticipated concrete surface, volunteers with the Peninsula Trails Coalition spent about 100 volunteer hours reinforcing the structural integrity of the ramp. Construction is weather dependent, but Jones expects the project to be finalized by early March. From left, Karen McCormick, First Federal Community Foundation executive director; Dave Blake, First Federal Community Foundation vice chairman; Nesse; Laurie Szczepczynski, First Federal business development officer; Jones, and Shenna Younger, First Federal branch manager on Sequim Avenue.

less of an influx of animals this year, too. Earlier this month, shelter veterinarian Dr. Suzy Zustiak released the shelter’s intake numbers for 2015 that show its intake went down nearly 200 animals from 2014 along with its total amount of euthanized animals from 102 to 91. Wegener said the new facilities will help all of the animals with different levels of care. “It’s a much better environment,” she said. “They’ll be much more comfortable.” The current Port Angeles facility is at about 2,900 square feet whereas the new facilities offer about 10,000 square feet on 9.5 acres with dog kennels increasing from 28 to 54. With more space, Wegener said they could segregate dogs such as strays and/or unadoptable animals with violent histories in whole rows, if needed. “It’ll be safer all around,” she said. “It’ll be much easier for people to come in and see what dogs are up for adoption. If you lost a dog, you can go to the row for strays.” In the home for cats, there will be community rooms, a patio to play, rooms for kittens and cats that don’t get along, she said. Total, the project cost $1.4 million including $325,000 for the property. The shelter is within about $100,000 from its fundraising goal, Wegener said. “We plan to move in debt free,” she said. The shelter, an open-door private nonprofit, conducted a feasibility study in 2013 that found the community supported a new facility and funding for the facility came from private donations and some in-kind service, Wegener said. “We don’t have to work hard for people to see the need,” she said. As for the older facility, it’ll be listed for sale and its funds put into the newer facility, Wegener said. A second phase at the Old Olympic Highway site would build a structure for the administration and veterinarian services and cat house but Wegener said they “aren’t pushing right away though for the second phase.”

Wegener attributes this to spay and neuter efforts from animal welfare groups. “I think it’s starting to pay off,” she said. “Groups like Spay to Save, Peninsula Friends of Animals and everyone who put that effort to do low-cost or no-cost spay or neuters can take all the credit for reduced numbers,” she said. Comparing other intake totals, dogs as a whole went down from 506 to 479 and cats down 560 to 506 while other types of animals like birds and rabbits went up 46 to 106 and puppies up 15 to 30. More than half of their animals were adopted (769 total or 54.3 percent) compared to 2014 (724 at 44.9 percent). Transfers of animals did go down though from 450 to 240 last year. As for the total number euthanized animals, 91 were killed in 2015 com-

pared to 102 in 2014. Of those last year, 21 dogs were euthanized with 18 for behavioral reasons and three for health concerns. Fifty-eight cats were euthanized as well with 26 for behavior and 32 for health. Other animals euthanized include two puppies, nine kittens and one rabbit, all cited for health reasons. Zustiak reports Clallam County Animal Control requested five animals be euthanized. Wegener said they “really can’t anticipate what (euthanasia) rates are going to be” because it’s on a “case by case basis.” She added that the shelter wants to “give every animal the opportunity to prove itself.” For more information on the Olympic Peninsula Humane Society, call 4578206 or go online to www. ophumanesociety.org.

From page A-1 data to rank each county — a Robert Wood Johnson Foundation supported program. “We want to reverse that trend,” Dixon said. Mark Ozias, Clallam County commissioner and Healthy Community Coalition cochairman, began developing the concept of a healthy community coalition nearly two years ago while acting as Sequim Food Bank executive director and has since worked behind the scenes to transition the concept to reality. In mid-2014 Ozias received a grant from the Olympic View Community Foundation to support his initial efforts to meet with possible partners and fellow directors of healthcentric organizations. When identifying whether a collective interest to address community health issues existed among local educators, health- and nutrition-focused organizational leaders, Ozias got “really positive feedback” he said. This feedback fueled the start of the Healthy Community Coalition that held its first meeting in April 2015. “People were thrilled to have been given the opportunity to communicate,” Ozias said. “There was significant overlap between the organizations — another reason for a coalition.” Joining Ozias and Dixon, coalition partners include representatives with the Sequim School District, Olympic Medical Center, Dungeness Valley Health a n d Wel l n e s s Cl i n ic , Sequim Food Bank, Nourish, Molina Healthcare, Boys & Girls Clubs of the Olympic Peninsula, Clallam County health department, Shipley Center and the Olympic View

Community Foundation. The Olympic View Community Foundation grant was able to financially support the initial phase of the coalition, but ensuring the coalition’s development Molina Healthcare has since underwritten all expenses. “As a health care organization they are really committed to community outreach and education,” Ozias said. With committed and supportive partners like Molina Healthcare, Olympic Medical Center and the county health department outside the Sequim region, the “possibility exists” but no plans have been made to extend the coalition’s focus countywide yet, Ozias said. “The coalition decided early on to focus on the Sequim-Dungeness Valley as its starting point because we wanted to be successful and effective,” he said.

Ready, Set, Go! 5210 Having a tangible geographic focus and the Healthy Community Coalition established, its partners were ready to collectively address local health issues primarily related to food and exercise, like obesity. “When the Healthy Community Coalition formed we were seeking something to do with our stakeholders that would resonate with them,” Ozias said. Relying on her past 15 years of working both state and nationwide on food policy, Dixon introduced the “Ready, Set, Go! 5210” program as an avenue to provide structure and traction. The 5210 program focuses on five fruits and vegetables, two hours or less of recreational screen time, one hour or more of physical activity and zero sugary drinks, daily. “In a very straight forward,

easy to latch onto way, it addresses the key behaviors that have the biggest impact and can help people feel better, be healthier and feel less hungry,” Ozias said. “We know it can change behaviors that over the course of time will start to compound and change statistics.” In 2014, 35 percent of 288 10th-graders surveyed in Clallam County were obese or overweight, according to the Healthy Youth Survey done in collaborations among the Office of the Superintendent of Public Instruction, Department of Health, the Department of Social and Health Service’s Division of Behavioral Health and Recovery and the Liquor and Cannabis Board. Similarly, 31 percent of 296 eighth-graders were obese or overweight. Already 5210 programs have been implemented within thousands of communities in 32 other states across the county, Dixon said. Dixon helped start a “very successful” 5210 program in Pierce County, as well as in Kitsap County, she said. “It has crept up to the peninsula,” she said. “It’s simple, understandable and most importantly evidence-based.” “The fact that this program exists in other communities and has measurable impacts can’t be over emphasized.” Ozias said. “With this we don’t need to reinvent the wheel and we know that the wheel takes us in the direction that we’re trying to go.” In Pierce County the program was more child-centric, whereas in Kitsap County the program was directed toward adults and workplace health, Dixon explained. In the Sequim-Dungeness area, Ozias and Dixon expect the program to be wider in scope. “It’s going to be a broad

focus because we have a broad coalition,” Ozias said. “For example, the Sequim School District will primarily focus on childhood obesity because that is the aspect of this program that they are initially most interested in.” Instead of product- or rulebased, the 5210 program is a “social” or “universal message,” Dixon explained. “We need to think about this like a cultural shift in our community,” she said. The downward trend of community health countywide coupled with Sequim being more rural are two reasons Dixon sees the 5210 program as bringing positive change. “We are fairly isolated here in terms of not being a part of the programing happening in bigger cities, but we’re trying to bring about that type of innovation,” she said. Once introduced and integrated by the Community Health Coalition partners in their own unique ways, Ozias hopes program participants will extend beyond the coalition. “One of the powerful aspects of the program is different organizations can plug into in different ways, allowing the concept to be formally and informally enforced all over the place,” he said. Partners of the Healthy Community Coalition plan to host a Ready, Set, Go! 5210 kick-off conference in mid-June. “Hopefully, in a condensed period of time we can introduce the community to the program and then help organizations and individuals figure out how to plug into the program’s framework,” he said.

Sequim’s Ludwick selected to lead PC nursing program Sequim Gazette staff

After what Peninsula College officials call an extensive search, Alana Ludwick has been selected as the school’s Director of Nursing. It was a full circle moment for both Ludwick and the college: a Sequim native, Ludwick bega n her college journey at PC as a Ru n n in g LUDWICK Start student and graduated with an Associate of Arts degree in 2000. Ludwick holds a Master of Science in Nursing and a Doctorate of Nursing Practice from Vanderbilt University. The majority of her nursing career has focused on family and community health with expertise in palliative nursing. The goal of palliative care is to provide specialized medical care for people with serious illnesses. It focuses on providing patients with relief from the symptoms and stress of a serious illness. Ludwick served as a clinical preceptor in both nursing and medicine for the past nine years. She gained teaching experience during a two-year stint with the inpatient Palliative Care Service through the University of Washington and

Harborview Medical Center. In addition, she served as a student project advisor for Gonzaga University’s Community Health course within the RN to MSN program and has worked as an adjunct instructor in nursing for Vanderbilt University since 2013. Ludwick brings administrative and management experience from running her own private practice and being the sole medical provider at a levyfunded, school-based clinic through Group Health’s charitable foundation. She is a member of the University of Washington Palliative Care Center of Excellence and has served as a member and co-chair on the Harborview Medical Center Palliative Care Committee. Additionally, Ludwick worked with Group Health to establish a new schoolbased health center from the ground up, including consulting on the remodel process, ordering all new equipment, pharmacy and clinic accreditation, establishing clinical procedures, hiring staff and networking with community stakeholders. Ludwick joined the college Jan. 4 and was formally introduced at the Jan. 11 President’s meeting. For more information, contact Kelly Griffith at kgriffith@pencol.edu.

We also hope to start making our own boards with our own logo.” As for the shop’s name, give the credit to 16-year-old Shaun Jones Jr. who said, “I came up with it because ‘dynamic’ is like kinetic energy that’s always improving.” He has been skateboarding since age 2. Board styles include long boards for cruising, popsicle boards for tricks and penny boards.

January is a busy time for the Washington State Department of Revenue, with state excise tax returns due by the end of the month from more than 500,000 taxpayers with active tax registrations. The deadline for monthly filers is Monday, Jan. 25. Quarterly and annual filers have until Monday, Feb. 1, due to the return date falling on a Sunday. Department of Revenue officials advise taxpayers to prepare their returns early and, if needed, seek assistance sooner rather than later in the month; wait times for help from Revenue’s tax specialists grow longer as the end of the month nears. January is when the tax return due date converges for all businesses, whether they file on an annual, quarterly or monthly basis. All filers must file a tax return by their due date. The Department of Revenue offers several options to help all taxpayers file their return on time: • Call and talk to Revenue’s

Clallam County to restore sales tax rate S by ROB OLLIKAINEN Olympic Peninsula News Group

Clallam County has given notice that its 0.2 percent sales tax holiday will sunset April 1. Commissioners Mike Chapman and Mark Ozias voted Tuesday to notify the state Department of Revenue that the tax on items purchased in unincorporated areas will be restored

to 8.4 percent. Commissioner Bill Peach voted no. “I will be voting in favor of this, not because I’m in favor of raising taxes on one of my first votes as commissioner, but because I have serious concerns about the long-term sustainability of the county budget,” said Ozias, who was sworn in as the east county’s District 1 commissioner Dec. 29. “In consultation with my

fellow commissioners and others, I’ve only had those concerns reaffirmed,” Ozias continued. “I believe that reinstating the sales tax to its previous level is a solid first step in terms of helping to address some of the long-term structural problems of the county budget.” Since county policy requires an ordinance to change the optional sales tax, final action will occur

after a public hearing Jan. 26. The hearing will begin at 10:30 a.m. at the Clallam County Courthouse, 223 E. Fourth St., Port Angeles. Counties must give the state Department of Revenue 75 days notice to change the 0.5 percent optional sales tax. Last April, commissioners voted unanimously to lower the sales tax to 8.2 percent in an effort to stimulate the local economy.

The tax break means a $100 purchase costs 20 cents less now than it did before the reduction took effect July 1. The tax holiday also represents a $1 million hit to county coffers if left in place for an entire year. Clallam County budgeted $4.6 million in sales tax revenue for 2016 based an earlier forecast of robust economic growth. County Administrator Jim Jones said he and Chief Ac-

countant Stan Creasey now project that the county will be $450,000 to $500,000 short of the $4.6 million target.

OMC hires physicans, endorses school bond by CHRIS MCDANIEL Olympic Peninsula News Group

Olympic Medical Center commissioners have approved contracts for new physicians in Port Angeles and Sequim. On Jan. 6, they also endorsed the Sequim School District’s $54 million construction bond measure, which will be on the Feb. 9 special election ballot. The bond — requiring a 60 percent supermajority for passage — would pay for a new elementary school, renovation of Sequim High School and other district improvements. Such renovations are needed to attract qualified physicians LEWIS to the Sequim area, said Olympic Medical Center CEO Eric Lewis. “Physicians are looking (for) much more than a place to work,” he said. “They are looking for a place to have a career (and) a place to raise their families.” Generally, “physicians and their

Bond

From page A-1 and will be addressed by this bond is the district kitchen. It services every single student in the district and for some kids, school breakfast and lunch are the only meals they see during the week.” The school improvements general obligation bond slated for the Feb. 8 special election mirrors the November 2015 bond proposal that failed to reach the super majority (60 percent) with 59.57 percent of the vote in favor. Building a new elementary school, adding more classrooms at Greywolf Elementary and the high school, modernizing the district base kitchen, renovating the 1979 addition of the Sequim Community School and demolishing the 1948 portion are among the projects earmarked. The overarching reasons driving the identified projects are to improve safety, security, health and efficiency, provide more space and enhance the district’s learning environments and upgrade technology. “When we look at the 1950s the number of unskilled labor

spouses go and visit the schools” before deciding if they want to move to the community, Lewis said. He said one physician who was considering moving to Sequim recently decided against the move and relocated elsewhere after visiting Sequim High. “I think it is critical for our communities to have schools that are competitive and are attractive to retain physicians,” Lewis said. “Our schools really matter.”

Contracts The commissioners approved contracts for Dr. John Seddon, who specializes in orthopedic surgery; and Dr. David Lewis, who specializes in osteopathic family medicine. They also approved a contract for Michael McGuire, an advanced registered nurse practitioner of family medicine. In addition, commissioners approved CompHealth agreements for Drs. Scott Hankinson and Terri Oskin. CompHealth is a national health care staffing firm that provides temporary and permanent placement services for

was at 60 percent and that was good enough at that time … that’s now flipped,” Sequim School District Superintendent Gary Neal, said. Given the growing lack of space and outdated infrastructure limited in its design to support modern learning, Neal is “more than fearful of losing opportunity for our students,” he said. Although the bond addresses the same projects as the last bond proposal, the price has increased by $5 million. “The reason behind that price tag increase was because of indications that we’re getting that construction costs are increasing and will continue to increase for at least the next five years,” Brian Lewis, Sequim School District business manager, said. “We also have another complication in front of us in terms of costs and that is the school district has to pay prevailing wages on its public works projects and those prevailing wage rates for Clallam County are the same for King County.” Deputy Mayor Ted Miller admits he’s been “somewhat ambivalent” in his support of past school bond proposals, but believes this proposal is

CompHealth contracts The CompHealth contract for Hankinson is about $234 per hour for up to an eight-hour workday. Hankinson, slated to begin in February, is being brought on as a temporary staff member. He will join the hospital’s obstetrics and gynecology department to give existing department physicians some relief for vacations and sick days, Corley said. The CompHealth contract for Oskin is about $157 per hour for up to an eight-hour workday. Oskin will work as a family practitioner for three to six months as the hospital continues recruitment for a permanent family practice doctor, Corley said.

Accountability audit State auditors recently found the hospital in 2014 complied with state laws and regulations and its own policies and procedures in the areas examined, Eric Lewis told commissioners. The audit, which cost the hospital about $12,000 to commission, was completed recently after a threeweek period. This is the 15th consecutive year the hospital has passed the audit successfully, Lewis said. “It just shows that our employees are focused on following laws and regulations and internal policies,” Lewis said after the meeting. “I think we focus, as an organization, on being an organization of integrity. We just really work on making sure we are compliant with the rules and regulations. “We are not perfect, but when we make a mistake, we fix it.” Chris McDaniel is a reporter with the Olympic Peninsula News Group, which is composed of Sound Publishing newspapers Peninsula Daily News, Sequim Gazette and Forks Forum.

The adoption of the resolution in support of the school bond was among a number of unanimous decisions made by the city council Jan. 11. The councilors also agreed on their 2016 committee and liaison assignments and moved to host a public hearing Monday, Jan. 25, on a prosed amendment to utility code provisions. The proposed change is designed to clarify the consequences of a utility disconnection and to document the potential financial consequences to a future buyer or tenant, according to the report prepared by City of Sequim Attorney Craig Ritchie. The code amendment would ensure General Facility Charges for water and sewer would be due upon reconnection and allow only the property owner the ability to order a disconnection.

sioners followed the city council’s supportive spirit and unanimously passed a resolution on Jan. 12 to support the Sequim School District bond. “Strong schools are a huge component of the economic development of this county,” county commissioner Mike Chapman said.

During a home visit by Washington State Department of Corrections officers, convicted felon Kenneth Simmons Jr., 52, was arrested and booked into the Clallam County Correction Facility for the unlawful possession of a firearm and explosive devices on Jan. 8. Correction officers found a .22 caliber rifle while meeting with Simmons in the garage of the residence in the 100 block of Crown View Lane. After obtaining a search warrant for the residence, law officials found two explosive devices, commonly called “pipe bombs,” according to the Clallam County Sheriff’s Office. After finding the explosives, the search was suspended until the Washington State Patrol Bomb Squad arrived on the scene to continue the search. Upon completion of the search, in

A 34-year-old registered sex offender was arrested and charged with sexual exploitation of a minor, Sequim Police Department officials said last week. Officers arrested Charles David Gahimer on Jan. 6 and he is being held in the Clallam County Jail on a $130,000 bail. Sequim Police said the incident occurred in a home Gahimer and the victim, a 6-year-old boy, lived in together in the 800 block of East Alder Street. A search warrant served on the suspect’s room yielded over a dozen pieces of digital evidence which will be forensically examined in the coming weeks, Sequim Police officials said. As the investigation continues, additional charges are expected to be filed, they said. D et e c t i ve Sg t . S e a n Madison said officials with the department believe the people who lived in the same home as Gahimer — specifically, the witness and the victim’s father — did not know the suspect was convicted sex offender.

Odds, ends from the editor’s desk What do you get when you cram a bunch of politicians in the same place for two months? Sounds like the set-up for a joke — and in today’s political climate, it often is — but Washington state legislators this week are back at the proverbial bargaining table with a 60-day state legislative “short” session; in odd-numbered years, they meet for a full 105-day “regular” session. With looming statewide elections later in the year, including a contested race for the governor’s office, lawmakers take on new and unfinished issues in what likely will be a politically charged atmosphere in Olympia. With some GOP gains in the last election, the House is now closely divided with 50 Democrats and 48 Republicans, while the Senate has increased its Republican-led majority to 26 (25 Republicans and one crossover DemoEditor’s crat) and 23 Democrats. Corner More than 100 new measures have been preMichael Dashiell filed and were formally introduced on Monday, including Senate Bill 6163, cosponsored by Republican Sen. Michael Baumgartner and Democratic Sen. Andy Billig, proposed to keep charter schools open following a September Supreme Court ruling that called for their closure. Think you’ve got a workload? About 2,400 bills introduced during the 2015 session will continue in 2016. Whew. Among the more significant headline-grabbers expected to pique the public’s interest is (no shocker here) the work to finalize a state education funding plan in response to the state Supreme Court’s first-ever contempt order against lawmakers. There is no agreement on a set dollar amount needed to meet the court’s charge to “fully fund” basic education; Democrats have said it should be at least $3.5 billion, though they have not identified a funding source. Some legislators are calling for a state income tax to provide more money for schools. In addition, Washington State Attorney General Bob Ferguson is proposing some bipartisan legislation to increase transparency in government by enhancing penalties for violations of Washington’s Open Public Meetings Act. That puts a smile on a journalist’s face. Passed in 1971, the act requires all meetings of governing bodies of local and state public agencies be open and accessible to the public, and designed to ensure the public has information and access to the agencies established to serve them. The current penalty for violating the OPMA is $100, unchanged since the act was enacted in 1971. The proposed legislation would increase the penalty to $500 for a first-time violation, roughly in line with inflation, and also would enact a new $1,000 “repeat violator” penalty for a subsequent violation. Keep up with it all at washingtonvotes.org, where you can follow how our local and state legislators voted, follow particular bills through the process, sign up for notices about various goings on in Olympia and find contacts to send your concerns to your lawmakers.

The town that lost its school On Aug. 31, 2007, Washington’s 296 school districts became 295. Vader School District ceased to exist at the stroke of midnight that day. A series of failed levy and bond elections caused the school district to become financially non-viable and the State of Washington, through its Office of Superintendent of Public Instruction, took control of the district and conducted the legal process to dissolve the district and close the school. Guest Vader is a small town O pinion in southwest Washington’s Lewis County. At Brian Lewis one time a forest products community, it had slowly transitioned into a retirement center. In 2006, the district had proposed a succession of levies to fund operations that failed to gain the required approval from voters. Then routine health inspections uncovered life and safety deficiencies first in the school’s gymnasium and then throughout the school’s instructional building. Lewis County condemned the gym and ordered the school district to make the needed repairs or its instructional building also would be condemned. The district asked voters to approve a bond issue to address the school’s structural, fire alarm and detection, electrical, phone and intercom systems, and heat systems. The bond issue failed as well, Lewis County condemned the school building and the State of Washington began the consolidation process. A key point: Historical accounts of Vader’s dissolution indicate that voters were informed repeatedly that if building issues were not addressed, the district could face dissolution and consolidation into a neighboring district with a higher tax rate than

what was being presented to voters in all three elections. Voters expressed distrust in these statements made by district and state government officials.

Fallout in Vader So what was the ultimate fallout from consolidation? Exactly what the school and state said was going to happen: the district dissolved, Castle Rock School District took over, and Vader’s students were bused out of town to the nearest elementary school 15 miles away. The taxpayers were subjected to Castle Rock’s higher tax rate even though they did not have a chance to vote on the levy and bond issues that comprised those taxes. That tax rate ended up being higher than the district had proposed to voters in the failed elections. The community lost control of and influence on its students’ futures.

Our schools In Sequim, Haller Elementary is facing many of the same issues that Vader’s school building faced: There are only two toilets for every 120 students in the instructional buildings (not bathrooms, but toilets). Haller’s electrical system cannot supply adequate electricity to operate in today’s high tech environment, its fire detection and alarm systems do not extend to all areas of the school and the system is so antiquated that parts to extend it are not available. The electronic brain of the system does not have the capacity to accept any further connections of fire detectors or alarms. Security issues created by a dispersed building configuration like Haller’s make the site very difficult to secure. Other sites across Sequim School District face similar pressures. Our instructional

Touring of the Sequim school campus helps explain why the Sequim School Board keeps looking for those last few votes for passage of the bond issue. Clearly, repairs have been necessary for a long time, but in Washington where bond funding is the only option for school construction, there were times when the area’s economy couldn’t support a bond issue. So needed projects were left undone. Recently, along with 20 other area residents, I visited a band room where 120 kids play instruments in a space designed for fewer than 75. That’s an eye opener. The outdated kitchen that prepares food and serves more than 2,000 kids a day is another shock. A building abandoned in 2012 because of 1948 construction techniques that left it subject to severe mold causes a shiver up my spine. And Haller School is a disaster, housing kindergarten and elementary students, with separate pods and only one restroom stall for up to 60 kids — and a long walk exposed to inclement weather to a cafeteria that has no restrooms at all. Then there are the pre-moon walk science labs, outdated and deteriorating. The current school board is fighting for bond passage to do right for

the children of Sequim and surrounding areas that are part of the school district. So, for the future of Sequim education and for attracting professionals to bring their families to live here — thus increasing services available for all of us — I am voting YES on the bond issue.

Sequim’s Irrigation roots can be useful now One hundred-plus years ago, Sequim’s irrigation system helped feed the community, supported wildlife and helped one of the most important local aquifers with its inherent leaking. It even had fish. It was an ecosystem modification that would be impossible with current permitting standards/communal interests. As it is known to assist the upper aquifer, why isn’t the system turned back on once the rains return? Sequim’s “ditches” could once again be used as part of an upgrade to our community. With competent engineering, the canal system can be designed with reservoirs that collect stormwater in the wet season with controlled release in the dry season to provide aquifer relief and extend irrigation time with less pressure on the Dungeness in late summer.

Let’s plan these improvements on public and willing landowner property as part of a human-made ecosystem that would support more wildlife, a community park system and a recreational fishery. Many of us would be surprised how much it’s worth to have a camp area near a creek/pond with the chance of catching breakfast. How about camp shelters — electricity, water, WiFi — slide your card and your campsite turns on. Our community leaders have promised millions for an experimental recycler for some of Boeing’s haz-crap. Clallam County, industrial recycler … It’s probable a storm water recycling system using Sequim’s ditches would sustain many more jobs while providing diverse economic benefits and outdoor recreation. The work can be sourced locally with emphasis on internships, education and entity cooperation. There is a great deal of money available for projects like this, our community leaders need only to choose a direction and wiggle their pens. This project can be constitutionally supported if our community wants it bad enough so the bearers of red tape better have their big boy pants on. Instead of waiting for a bunch of trees to grow or urban sprawl to claim the available landscape, we have a chance to create a viable,

thriving ecosystem that could arguably recharge one of our most important aquifers and help sustain our community for the next 100 years. Randy Terry Sequim

Keep to a no frills design I’m a “retired” electrician (started in 1953), so have “worked” with many architects during my “career” (many of whom are in “business” to “erect” monuments to themselves, for advertising purposes, I presume). I was the foreman on the West Valley High School in Fairbanks, Alaska, a school devoted to “school resources” by a very competent “no frills” architect. I also was the foreman on the new (1975) Fairbanks City Hall, which had numerous “frills,” which were exceedingly difficult to “construct” and increased the cost considerably. I also could refer you to the “Taj Mahal” on Cedar Street here in Sequim. My thinking is that the no votes — mine included — on the school bond elections are partly because voters are “fed up” with “designs” on new school buildings that contribute nothing to education, but are “look at what I did” buildings. “If” I had my way, states — including Washington — would have about six (more or less) architecturally

About half a million people worldwide take part in Unified Sports, seeking to break down stereotypes about people with intellectual disabilities in a fun way. Sequim is the first in the Olympic League to establish Unified teams, according to SHS principal Shawn Langston. He and staffers Shelley Langston, Erin Fox and Jennifer Van De Wege serve as coaches for the event. See www.specialolympics.org/ unified-sports.aspx and/or www. specialolympicswashington.org for more information and inspiring stories.

Site check Speaking of inspiration … I just stumbled upon a great website that in two minutes will surely perk up your day. At www.greatbigstory.com are stories of some of the more odd folks you’ll ever meet, all with a common theme: They’re all fascinating and they all have a great story to tell. And I’m not just promoting this because for a while a quarter of the newest content was Star Wars saga-driven and not just because one of the stories uses a dachshund for its primary art … but it doesn’t hurt.

A presidential note Gazette contributor Tim Wheeler got a nice note in the mail the other day — from the President. No joke. Wheeler received a note from President Obama, thanking​​him for mailing the President a story of his father’s visit to Wheeler’s farm in Sequim in 1961. At the time, Wheeler was working on his family’s Sequim dairy farm and taking classes at the University of Washington. He met his future wife, Joyce, at the UW and made many friends. Some visited their farm, including Muga Ndega, an exchange student from Kenya. When he ran into Muga on the UW campus, Muga asked if he might visit again and this time bring a friend, a fellow Kenyan who had a big car and that they could all ride together. “So we did,” Wheeler writes in his story, “with Muga and Joyce and I in the back seat, and his friend driving with two young women with him in the front. He

was a slim, handsome man with an unusual and unforgettable name (Barack Obama Sr.). “I will never forget the whiteknuckle terror as the Buick careened around the curves of Old Olympic Highway at breakneck speed to our home, the old Bell House that still stands up on Bell Hill. Muga’s friend was gracious and polite. I remember little more about his visit.” Wheeler’s story found its way onto the President’s desk. Wheeler’s story was featured in the local publication, The Ditchwalker, and in a Verbatim column here at the Gazette. “Now I plan to put Obama’s thank you note in my memoir. It keeps getting longer and longer,” Wheeler writes.

A note to contributors We here at the Gazette appreciate all of your submissions — the big stuff and the small stuff, from notes and story ideas to briefs and letters and whatnot. A note, however, about photo submissions: while it seems every phone out there has a camera, not every phone that takes a photo is usable. We get an inordinate number of quite-low-resolution photos that we can’t use. Since we use photos in a variety of sizes, we don’t have a specific minimum file size or resolution, so if you’re wanting us to use one of your photos, know if your phone’s camera can take a decent, quality photo … or better yet, use a camera. Thanks! Send those items our way at news@sequimgazette.com or drop them off here at the office, 147 W. Washington St. in downtown Sequim.

There’s a national campaign to lower the voting age. Vote16USA wants to lower the voting age two years, hoping to spur civic engagement by younger Americans. A reportedly non-partisan group based out of New York called Generation Citizen is reigniting the debate about and issues surrounding the reasoning voting age restrictions, including voter competency, adolescent decision-making and whether allowing teens to vote is the best way to politically engage teens. Washington state held a student mock poll through Secretary of State Kim Wyman’s office in the fall. Nearly 10,000 students across the state took part, including more than 2,000 in grades K-5 and nearly 8,000 in grades 6-12 (see results at www.sos.wa.gov/ elections/student-mock-election. aspx#/results).

And finally … For those of you interested in how my college football picks turned out — and that includes probably about five people, and my wife isn’t one of them — I fared pretty well. You still would have lost a good chunk of change betting on these picks using the spread, but I think with Alabama’s narrow win over Clemson on Monday night that 26 wins and 16 defeats isn’t too shabby … particularly after losing the first handful of games. I had a few ugly losses — I picked Oklahoma to knock off Clemson (they lost 37-17) in one national semifinal and picked Florida to edge Michigan (the Wolverines won 41-7) — along with a few near misses, like picking Oregon to top TCU (they lost in triple overtime) and USC to win against Wisconsin (they lost by two). But all in all, my best year of bowl-picking yet. And it includes this gem: I picked Western Kentucky to top South Florida, 45-35. In the end, the Hilltoppers helped me out and beat USF … 45-35.

I am writing this letter in support of the bond for the Sequim School District. As a new resident to Sequim, having recently moved from the state of Pennsylvania, and as a former school district administrator, I cannot stress enough how important these funds will be for our neighborhood schools. Research shows that high-performing schools have a number of common characteristics, several of which focus on what is needed for safe schools and supportive learning environments. After touring the buildings and grounds of our Sequim schools, I was disheartened to see the noticeable lack of resources, the limited classroom learning spaces and the conditions of some of the buildings. Our students, teachers, administrators and community deserve more! Our community school structures do not even measure up to those of high-poverty schools. We cannot with good conscience allow this to continue. The more we wait, the further behind we will be and it will take even more funding to catch up. Our community deserves to have schools that meet and/or exceed 21st-century educational facilities. I appeal to our community to vote in favor of the bond that will increase the safety of our buildings, provide needed technology for fire detection and alarm capabilities, and will increase access to modern educational spaces, tools and services. Dr. Linda De Ivernois Sequim

Bond pushes excess capacity

Now, let me get this straight. The Sequim Schools Bond is intended to pay for: additional classrooms and a gym for Greywolf Elementary School (adding capacity); additional classrooms at the high school (more capacity); a brand new elementary school (a whole lot more capacity); and to refurbish and repurpose the Helen Haller School (reserve capacity). That sounds like we are adding very much, currently excess, capacity. Normally, I would say an overcapacity situation is a good thing, like prudent planning for the future. In this case, I am not so sure. You see, I suspect that there is a guy in that other Washington, more likely a whole room full of guys, who are looking around just for communities with excess capacity. Excess capacity in schools, housing, you name it, the government needs to find those communities having excess capacity so they can park a few (or a few thousand) refugees. Spare capacity in the schools would be the most important thing to them though. It is the hardest to come by. Also, schools with all the latest security features to keep refugee children safe and isolated without having to assimilate would be to them the very best thing. I believe I’ll take a pass and vote no on this one. Dan Perry Sequim

Hello, my name is Annabel and I go to Helen Haller Elementary School. I like Helen Haller, but it has a few problems. I think that we should pass the bond because when it is really cold out you have to walk outside and freeze to get to another class and lunch. Also, there is only one stall in the bathrooms so if you really have to go you have to wait a while. Also, on the playground, when it rains there is a really big puddle where the entrance is so you have to stay inside for recess. And of course, since I’m a kid I can’t vote. Please vote yes for me.

and support staff do their very best to overcome these issues as they work with your students but they need our community’s help. Could school consolidation happen here? Could our community’s students be bused to other towns? Could Sequim-Dungeness Valley residents be subjected to the higher property taxes of neighboring school districts and lose the representation of an elected school board? Yes, this could happen here. The Sequim School District has a long-range facility plan created by a committee of citizens in collaboration with district officials and planning professionals to address these problems. The district’s plan corrects current building deficiencies and provides school facilities that help our students instead of limiting their learning opportunities like they do now, all at a tax rate less than half of what other districts our size pay. Keep in mind the lessons of the Vader School District when thinking about our community’s schools. Contact us at the school if you have any questions at all about the facilities plan or the bond issue. Don’t rely on rumors to inform your voting decision; go right to the source. You can call me at 5823266, e-mail blewis@sequim. k12.wa.us or check our website, www.sequim.k12.wa.us, for more information about the bond. These are your buildings and, more importantly, your community’s students.

Welcome to Holiday Lane Diamond Point Road, a reflection of holiday cheer by ALANA LINDEROTH Sequim Gazette

For the past decade from Thanksgiving through New Year’s Diamond Point Road transforms into “Holiday Lane.” Every year, rain, snow, wind or sun, residents of the Diamond Point Road community volunteer to hang large, glistening and colorful ornaments from the trees and shrubs bordering Diamond Point Road just east of Sequim. Bringing about a sense of the holidays for every passerby to enjoy takes about 20-35 community volunteers’ time and energy to evenly space about 1,000 ornaments the full length of the road, said Marty Hoffman, Holiday Lane organizer or better known as “Chief Forest Elf.” “We’re just very communityoriented here,” he said. “This year we had 34 dedicated individuals hang the ornaments.” By Saturday, Jan. 9, more than 20 volunteers were back at it, taking down ornaments and organizing them for the 2016 holiday season.

Founders of Holiday Lane Beverly and Wallace Teal were inspired to start the tradition after they encountered a similar road, fully adorned with ornaments in the “middle of nowhere” while driving through New Mexico, Wallace Teal said. “It was just so cool and such a surprise,” he said.

Wanting to instill that same sense of surprise and awe to their community, the Teals began decorating Diamond Point Road for the holidays in 2006. Two years later the Teals began to snowbird elsewhere and Hoffman took over spearheading the annual tradition. “It has grown over the years in

teers,” Hoffman said. Three “key community individuals” Hoffman attributes the growing success of Holiday Lane to are Marydee Countryman with the Diamond Point fire station, Larry Bennett with Western Cable Service and Ken Bridges with Diamond Point Storage.

Like the past 10 years, come the Saturday before Thanksgiving Hoffman and fellow volunteers plan to transition Diamond Point Road from a simple country road to the cheerful and spirited Holiday Lane many have come to enjoy.

Organizers of the Rainshadow Poetry Competition, a community event including poets from Clallam and Jefferson counties from all levels of ages and experience, have picked art for the cover of its 2016 anthology. Founders Judy Duncan and Ruth Marcus have selected Blue Whole Gallery artist Ryoko Toyama’s painting, “Harvest Time 1,” for the cover. This painting was accepted and exhibited in three juried shows in 2015: Collective Vision Gallery in Bremerton,

Sequim Arts Juried Show and Northwest Expressions of the Northwind Arts Center in Port Townsend. “I am honored that you like my painting,” Toyama said, regarding the selection. Toyama ack n o wl e d g e d that painting is her active TOYAMA response to the world, past and present. “I create my feelings and thoughts in painting,” she said. “The process and its result move me; they give me tremendous joy.”

About the competition

Another weekend and another grouping of medalists from Sequim wrestled across the state. The varsity boys finished second behind Klahowya at the Bainbridge Island Invite on Jan. 9, with 140.5 points out of 11 teams. On the day, three boys finished first — Craig Baker, 138 pounds, Adrian Klarich, 182, and Michael Latimer, 220. Sequim’s girls placed 12th out of 65 teams at the Kelso Girls Invitational with Alma Mendoza, 140, taking second and the highest finish for the Wolves. Back in Bainbridge, Baker won the 138-pound weight class with an opening pin in 35 seconds and an 8-0 win in the second round before a pin in the finals of Gabriel Broome of Marysville Getchell in 1:15. Klarich only needed two wins to win the 182-weight class including an 18-second pin following two bye matches and a 4-3 win over Lex Davis of Mountlake Terrace in the finals.

by MICHAEL DASHIELL Sequim Gazette

Coming into Friday night’s game, Sequim head coach Greg Glasser expected a scrappy game between his team and its crosspeninsula rival. That’s exactly what he and the Wolves got — and perhaps a bit more than they could handle. Port Angeles overcame a 10-0 first quarter deficit to edge the visiting Sequim squad 37-31 in front of a raucous Roughrider crowd. “I thought we did a good job of executing the game plan, which was keeping the ball out of the post,” Glasser said. Specifically, Sequim wanted to

opening frame. Payton Glasser’s three-pointer with 1:22 on the clock put the Wolves up 10-0, but baskets by PA’s Noah McGoff and Janson Pederson cut the lead in half before the end of the frame. Nick Faunce scored each of Sequim’s eight points in the second quarter, but the rest of the Wolves went cold, and a Grayson Peet triple just before halftime

The heavyweights from Kitsap County continue to dominate in the water. A pair of undefeated squads in Kingston (4-0) and host North Kitsap (3-0) dominated Sequim’s swimmers in a double-dual Olympic League meet on Jan. 7. Despite the losses (133-30 to Kingston, 136-29 to NK), Sequim’s swim crew showed plenty of improvement, head coach Linda Moats said. SHS’s 400 free relay of Christian Goodrich, David Calderon, Wendall Lorenzen and Alex Berikoff shed 55 seconds off their best time established before the winter break, finishing in 4:52.43.

Port Angeles’ supremacy in this hardcourt rivalry continues. Hayley Baxley and Nizhoni Wheeler led a balanced attack in the Roughriders’ 36-19 home victory on Jan. 8 Ella Christiansen led Sequim with seven points and seven rebounds, while Jordan Miller added five points, but it wasn’t nearly enough to knock off the Olympic League-leading Riders on their home court. “I don’t know if it was our nerves (but) it was a bit of a scramble,” Sequim head coach Justine Wagner said. “We love playing against man (toman) defense but we didn’t run through our plays. PA plays a fantastic defense.” The quick-handed and hot-shooting Riders jumped out to a 12-1 lead just five minutes into the game before Sequim shooters found their footing. A Jordan Miller 3-pointer spurred a sixpoint Sequim run, but strong play inside from Wheeler pushed PA’s lead to 18-9 by halftime.

Peninsula squad earns hard-fought draw vs. Crossfire Sequim Gazette staff

The Peninsula Soccer Academy, a high school girls travel soccer squad, earned a 1-1 tie with Crossfire Select Enstrom of Redmond on Jan. 9. The draw evens Peninsula’s record at 1-1-1 in the 12-game season of North Puget Sound First Division Winter League. Peninsula goalkeeper Claire Henninger of Sequim and fellow defenders kept Crossfire (3-0-1) out of the next in a scoreless first half. In the second half, Crossfire put Peninsula on its heels and punched

a goal through against Port Angeles veteran goalkeeper Maddy Wenzl via a defensive communication breakdown. Late in the second half, however, a quick throw in led to Sierra Robinson breaking past the Crossfire defense for a shot on goal. Though the Crossfire keeper made a stop, Peninsula’s Laura Nutter gathered the rebound for the game-tying score. The result snapped the previously perfect Crossfire Enstrom’s winning streak and helps Peninsula advance into fourth place in the division.

Peninsula Soccer Academy players include (back row, from left) Kyrsten McGuffey, Lola DelGuzzi Flores, Saige Hefton, Shanzi Tucker Cosgrove, Kennedy Mason, Yana Hoesel, Nicole Heaton, Cheyenne Wheeler, Erin Vig, Adare McMinn, Annika Carlson and coach Jake Hughes, with (front row, from left) Gretchen Happe, Maddy Wenzl, Leah Haworth, Claire Henninger and Laura Nutter.

Peninsula’s first conference test was a doozy. The Pirates clung to a three-point halftime lead but wound up on the short end of a 66-59 decision at No. 4-ranked Edmonds on Jan. 9. With leading scorers Deonte Dixon and Ryley Callaghan having an off-night from the field (a combined five-for-25),

Darrion Daniels came off the bench to score 25 points — including 10-for-14 from the free throw line — for Peninsula.

eight-point lead and held on to beat North Mason’s Bulldogs in a Jan. 5 nail-biter, 69-65. Payton Glasser sank nine of 10 free throws on his way to a game-high 21 points and Oliver added 18 points, helping lead Sequim to the squad’s first league win. Glasser hit seven of eight from the charity stripe in the final quarter to help seal the victory. “It was a good for him — a confidence-builder,” Sequim head coach Greg Gla sser, who’s a lso t he father of the sophomore guard, said. Shea added 14 points and seven rebounds, and Faunce chipped in with 12 points. Cowan led Sequim with nine rebounds while Oliver had eight. “(North Mason) got back into the game — they’re a very scrappy team, hungry,” Greg Glasser said. “They were looking for a win, like we were.” Freshman Trey Fisher led the Bulldogs with 19 points and Brice Solis added 15. The Sequim coach said that, other than league-leading North Kitsap, there isn’t much separation from teams in the Olympic League. “Our league is different than in any other of my 10 years,” Greg Glasser said. “Everyone else is in there.”

sent the Riders into the locker room with a 19-8 lead. Port Angeles held onto the lead after three quarters thanks to some sloppy Sequim passing — that led to back-toback turnovers — and Rogers’ work on the offensive boards that led to a pair of baskets. Despite a rough start to the fourth quarter (1-for-6 from the field, turnover), Sequim was within striking distance after Riley Cowan’s putback helped Sequim to creep to within 3128. But McGoff sank a 3-pointer to give Port Angeles a six-point lead with just 2:30 to play. SHS’s Jackson Oliver closed the gap with a two-point basket. The Wolves then forced Port Angeles to win the game at the free throw line. The strategy almost worked, as the Riders missed five of their final six charity stripe attempts. But the Wolves missed two shots and had a pair of critical turnovers that sealed their fate. Glasser, the Sequim coach, said his Wolves may have let their emotions get the better of themselves in this, their most heated league rivalry. “A tight game brings out emotions itself; our guys have to remain poised,” Glasser said. “I didn’t do a good job of that myself. Emotion’s a good thing (but we’ve) got to be able to play through it.” Faunce finished with nine points, eight rebounds, three assists and two blocks. Jack Shea added eight points and nine boards, and Oliver added seven points. McGoff had 12 points and four steals for Port Angeles.

stressed person is Mom. A new study shows that when moms are stressed out, their babies sense their anxiety. They actually show physical signs of stress themselves when the moms are under stress. Babies, just like the rest of us, can’t be protected from everything that might cause them stress. But there are ways to show her how to handle stress. • Learn how your baby can be comforted. Some may like to be held and others might like to be rocked. Some even like to have you sing to them and others may enjoy a bath. • Offer lots of physical affection … but pay attention to what your baby likes and dislikes. • Don’t leave your baby to “cry it out” when she is upset. This doesn’t make her a stronger or tougher adult. • Get help if you can’t handle the stress you feel when your baby is stressed and crying. • Take care of her needs by being there when she needs you. • Don’t worry about spoiling her with love and attention.

• When difficult things happen for your baby, help by being calm and caring for her after something stressful happens. We can do a lot to protect babies from the effects of toxic stress. Research has shown how infants exposed to lots of nourishing touch are more likely to develop into stress-resilient adults even if they were born with a high risk for stress-related problems. Other research has found that babies exposed to stress will develop normally when they receive lots of cuddling and caressing during infancy. The important ingredient is to learn how to read your baby. Some babies don’t handle touch as well as others do. So for them touching and stroking may cause additional stress and for others it may be soothing. You need to understand your baby. Babies are amazing. One of the reasons babies don’t come with a manual is that each is different. You need to become an expert on your child.

Before 1994, Northwest art was a hobby for Faulstich while doing commercial art as a living. “I basically taught myself how to do it,” he said. When asked to discuss his favorite or most memorable work, Faulstich said what fascinates him most is always his current project. “It’s the challenge of making that drawing, taking this block of wood and turning it into this drawing,” he said. Master Carver Dale Faulstich carves an eagle totem set for a veterans memorial in Blyn. “Once it’s finished and out Sequim Gazette photo by Matthew Nash the door, and even before it’s follow him step-by-step. panels for the new trestle out the door, I’m thinking down.

Humphries said it took him about two months to convince Faulstich to give him a chance five years ago.

I’m so grateful he’s willing to teach me these things.” Turner, who runs the sign shop for the tribe, said he started helping Faulstich with projects in the early 1990s and they’ve made at

He’s very generous with his knowledge.” Both Humphries and Turner feel Faulstich has left a lasting impact. “He’s really set a vision around the area,” Turner said. “It’s locally recognized. It’s globally recognized. He’s put a sense of style to his work that’s really quite great.” Humphries said it brings up a conversation that might not necessarily happen. “It really opens up people’s eyes to the culture and how much the native people have depended on the cedar,” he said. Following Faulstich’s retirement, the tribe plans to honor him on Jan. 19. The carving shed in Blyn will remain open to the public for viewing, too. Faulstich plans to travel with his wife Heather to Tasmania to see their son and his family in the coming months while continuing to pursue his own art. “I’m going to spend the rest of my life in this building (his studio) on rainy days and go out hiking when the sun is out,” he said. “I had one hell of a time playing. I spent my whole adult life playing and it worked for me.”

Sponsored by caring pet lovers. ROCK is a big happy boy! Rock came to us with his “sister” Taz, and we would like to see them adopted to the same home. Rock is friendly with all people, but he is picky about other animals, and cannot go to a home with cats! It would be best to have Rock and Taz be the only pets. Also he will need a well fenced yard to keep him under control. Rock is a big strong boy, so his owner will need to be able to handle him appropriately and be consistent with training. TAZ came in with Rock and they get along very well! Taz is a total sweet heart with a very calm and mature temperament. She has lived with kids and is good with other large dogs. However, her “brother” Rock, is not so great with other animals, so they will have to be the only pair of animals in the home...

www.stinkydogubathe.com DUKE is a very good boy! He can be shy and nervous around new people, but he’s been doing much better with staff and volunteers. While Duke is not good with cats or small kids, Duke LOVES to play with other dogs! He would be a great companion for another canine. Duke does not make a good first impression in his kennel, but does very well when out for walks! ATHENA is the SWEETEST girl! Athena used to be good with other animals, but as she matured she now prefers to be the ONLY pet in the home! Athena will need a very well fenced yard, and an owner that can keep a close eye on her (she likes to escape, and she’s very good at it!). Athena loves to be loved, and she needs an experienced owner to provide her with all the best!!
