ON THE NORTH OLYMPIC PENINSULA A special supplement produced by Peninsula Daily News and Sequim Gazette

Who’s on the cover of Who’s Who? Clockwise from top right: Karen Goschen, Rick Thompson, Rick Bart, Marla Tolliver, Luke Robins, Teresa Verraes and Len Borchers.

Karen Goschen, executive director of the Port of Port Angeles Karen Goschen was hired by the Port of Port Angeles as the director of finance in August 2012, was promoted to deputy executive director in December 2014, was appointed interim executive director in January 2016 and was appointed executive director in July 2016. Goschen has held a variety of executive level jobs, traveled extensively and thought a lot about life. “I think one’s highest point of contribution is the combination of passion, talent and making a difference. I feel I have that opportunity as executive director of the Port,” she said. “Creating jobs is a key building block to permanently improving people’s lives and the community. I will work hard at implementing Port infrastructure that lowers the barriers of capital investment for companies to do business in Clallam County. The Port’s Strategic Plan will guide that effort.” Rick Thompson, Chimacum School District superintendent Rick Thompson grew up in Renton. His grandparents and many close friends were teachers. His father was a teacher, and so was his mother — without needing a credential.  He began teaching in his early 20s and has enjoyed the variety of challenges of public education. “I started in 1986, but have been working in schools all my life. My father is my most profound role model, serving in public

education since 1959,” Thompson said. “I grew up with the deeply held belief that a good education makes things possible that were seemingly impossible. “Doors can open and opportunities are available. I try in my job to ensure the school district opens up opportunities for kids. Great teachers made it happen for me. I remember each one fondly and am deeply thankful for their hard work and insights.” Rick Bart, Forks police administrator Rick Bart was born in Sedro-Woolley and grew up in Alderwood Manor. He graduated from Mountlake Terrace High School in 1966. He joined the U.S. Air Force in 1967 and served until 1972 as a security policeman. He obtained an associate degree from Shoreline Community College and a bachelor’s degree from Seattle University. Bart completed the FBI Academy and the FBI Law Enforcement Executive Development School. He became a Snohomish County deputy sheriff in 1972 and worked his way up through the ranks until he was elected Snohomish County sheriff in 1995. He retired in 2008 after serving three terms as sheriff due to term limits. Bart also instructed at Everett Community College for many years. After retiring, he taught at a private college and created a consulting business. He was hired as police administrator for the city of Forks in 2013. Bart has five grown children and nine grandchildren. He is an avid softball player and has competed in the Washington State Senior Games and the World Senior Olympics. He also enjoys fishing, hunting and living on the beach. Marla Tolliver, Makah Tribal Council chairwoman As chairwoman of the Makah Tribal Council, Marla Tolliver’s responsibility is to perform all of the duties prescribed by the constitution and bylaws of the Makah tribe. As an employee for the Makah Tribal Council for 20-plus years, Tolliver has worked with the Makah Fisheries Management, Makah Housing Authority, Hobuck Beach Resort, Neah Bay Public Safety, Makah Tribal Court and as a drug free safety officer. Tolliver was voted into Makah Tribal Council in January 2015 and has served as chair since January 2016. Her favorite hobby is being an amateur photographer. She enjoys taking photos of potlatches and capturing those moments of history for tribal families. Luke Robins, Peninsula College president Luke Robins was appointed as the sixth president of Peninsula College on July 1, 2012. The college is located in Port Angeles, with additional campuses in Forks and Port Townsend. Under Robins’ leadership, the college has reaffirmed its strong commitment to student

success and service to the communities of the Olympic Peninsula. The college also has developed a new Strategic Plan and Facilities Master Plan. Robins is actively involved in economic development efforts in the region. Prior to Peninsula College, he was chancellor of Louisiana Delta Community College. An Illinois native, Robins holds a bachelor’s degree from Wheaton College, a master’s degree in English from Illinois State University and a Ph.D. in community college leadership from the University of Texas at Austin. Teresa Verraes, executive director of the Jefferson County Chamber of Commerce As the executive director of the Jefferson County Chamber of Commerce, Teresa Verraes has transformed the chamber into an organization that exemplifies leadership, collaboration and engagement, successfully creating a model admired statewide. Among other accomplishments, Verraes has doubled business participation and led the charge for the Young Professional Network & Inspired, a co-location effort with three other economic development agencies to best serve the county and the region. Verraes grew up in Jefferson County and has owned and operated four businesses, giving her a keen sense of what business owners need to succeed and what the business climate is like in a rural area. When not being a business crusader, Verraes is on a beach walk with her pups, playing in the garden or planning her next do-it-yourself project. Len Borchers, Olympic Peninsula YMCA executive director Len Borchers is responsible for the direction and operation of YMCA branches. The oldest and largest facility is in Port Angeles and has been a fixture in the community since the early 1960s. Jefferson County operates a program branch at the Mount View Commons and in numerous school sites throughout the area. The newest YMCA branch will open in October at the former Sequim Aquatic and Recreation Center (SARC) facility at 610 N. Fifth Ave. The new Sequim facility will become the largest branch and is complete with fitness center, gym, racquet ball courts, aerobics studio and a six-lane pool. Prior to being named executive director, Borchers served as the chief financial officer at the YMCA for 10 years. Prior to joining the Y, he had his own landscaping and retail garden store business. Borchers originally came to Port Angeles in 1985 as administrator of the Port Angeles Clinic and served there until 1996 when the clinic was sold to Virginia Mason. He and his wife Christine have three grown children and one grandchild. He has served as a Little League and Babe Ruth coach and was the head wrestling coach at Sequim High School from 2009 to 2014.

HOSPITAL: JEFFERSON HEALTHCARE PORT OF PORT TOWNSEND elected commissioners who oversee Jefferson Healthcare began as

St. John’s Hospital in Port Townsend, which was founded by the Sisters of Providence in 1890. After a long commitment of service to the community, the sisters withdrew from the hospital in 1975. At that time, the hospital operations were taken over by the county as Jefferson County Public Hospital District No. 2. The hospital was renamed Jefferson General Hospital. In January 2003, the hospital was designated as a critical access hospital. In September 2004, Jefferson General Hospital transitioned into the entity called Jefferson Healthcare. Recognizing that the hospital had grown into a fully integrated health care system, the hospital commissioners provided the leadership necessary to change the name to more accurately express the broad range of services provided to the community. As a public hospital district, Jefferson Healthcare is owned by the taxpayers of East Jefferson County and is operated as a municipal corporation by five

the district’s operations. Jefferson Healthcare offers a comprehensive array of health services including inpatient hospital care, outpatient services, primary care clinics, emergency care and home health/ hospice services.

The Port of Port Townsend was established under the Washington state laws of 1911 by election on Nov. 4, 1924. The port district includes all of Jefferson County and continues to operate as a municipal corporation. The port oversees Port Townsend Boat Haven, the Point Hudson Marina and RV Park, the Port Townsend Boatyard, Union Wharf and City Pier and Jefferson County International Airport. Regularly scheduled meetings of the Port Commission include the second Wednesday of each month at 1 p.m. in the new Commission Building, 333 Benedict St., Port Townsend, and the fourth Wednesday of each month at 5:30 p.m. in the same location. Port commissioners are Stephen Tucker, Brad Clinefelter and Peter Hanke. The Port of Port Townsend’s administration office is at 2701 Jefferson St., Port Townsend. For more information, contact 360-3850656 or Sam Gibboney is the executive director.

This relationship ensures that the promises made and the rights retained in the Treaty of Point No Point (signed in 1855 by ancestors of the present-day citizens of the tribe), including cultural and natural resources, education and health care, are maintained. The tribal government includes committees made up of tribal citizens who make recommendations to the tribal council and employs close to 200 people who manage the tribe’s resources, protect its sovereignty and provide programs and services for the tribe’s 569 citizens. In addition to the staff members who work in the tribal offices in Blyn, Jamestown Family Health Clinic and Jamestown Dental Clinic (both of which are open to the general public), Northwest Native Expressions Gallery and Gift Shop and the Dungeness River Audubon Center at Railroad Bridge Park, the tribe employs approximately 500 additional staff at its businesses enterprises, including 7 Cedars Casino, The Cedars at Dungeness golf course, Longhouse Market and Deli and Chevron Fueling Station, Jamestown Excavating, Jamestown Networks, Mobilisa Enterprise Wireless, Carlsborg Self-Storage and Jamestown Fireworks.  For the past 30-plus years since attaining official recognition on Feb. 10, 1981, the Jamestown S’Klallam tribe has utilized its status as a federally acknowledged sovereign nation to continue its work as a progressive, forward-thinking people, intent on self-sufficiency through economic development, education and community partnerships.  Projects focus on protection and restoration of natural resources and habitat (in the Dungeness River Watershed and beyond), improving health and wellness (partnered with Olympic Medical Center), ensuring community protection (partnered with Clallam County Fire District No. 3 and the Clallam County Sheriff’s Office) and promoting education (working with Native students of all ages in public elementary, middle and secondary level, and partnered with Peninsula College Longhouse) and job readiness.

Forks Community Hospital’s (FCH) motto is “Pioneers in Rural Health Care,” not because it’s a catchy phrase; it’s true! There has been a hospital in Forks since 1949 and Clallam County Hospital District No. 1 was the very first public hospital district formed in the state.

Located at 530 Bogachiel Way, the campus is home to the hospital, a longterm care facility, medical office, Bogachiel Clinic, a mental health and chemical dependency program called West End Outreach Services, and the Clallam Bay Medical Clinic in Clallam Bay. With more than 200 workers, the hospital is Forks’ largest employer. Staff encompasses primary care providers and a network of visiting physician specialists including Harrison Health Cardiology, general surgery, orthopedics, ear, nose and throat, gynecology, podiatry and urology. Health care in Forks is very much up with the times: Dr. Tristan McGovern, orthopedic surgeon, directs a total joint replacement program that allows recipients to stay in their home community for knee or hip replacement surgery, along with all the physical therapy and rehabilitation needed to get back in the game. Medical records are electronic, X-ray systems are digital and treatment protocols are identical to those used in major urban medical centers such as Harborview and Swedish hospitals in Seattle. Despite being high-tech, Forks Community Hospital patients know the staff and staff often care for their neighbors. FCH is governed by a three-person board of commissioners who are publicly elected: Daisy Anderson, chair; Don Lawley, secretary; Gerry Lane, commissioner, and Tim Cournyer, chief executive officer.

This district is located on the most Northwestern tip of the continental United States, surrounded by the Olympic Mountains to the southeast, the Pacific Ocean to the west and the Strait of Juan de Fuca to the north.

Approximately 1 percent of the 55,000 found artifacts are on display at the world-renowned Makah Cultural and Research Center. From the tip of Cape Flattery Trail, visitors can view Tatoosh Island while standing on the most northwesterly tip of the contiguous lower 48 states.

“Getting everybody together for this photo was like corralling cats on catnip during a rainstorm. Everyone claimed they “had stuff to do”. Jonathan had cars to work on in the back. Michael refused to take off his baseball hat until we threatened him. Clint kept insisting we turn on the 50”light bars in the background, we kept telling him that would wash out the photo too much. Jay kept hiding from the camera, we had to duct tape him to the counter so he wouldn’t get away. John M was in Mount Vernon goofing off so we had to photoshop his lazy butt into the picture. Our new guy Edward would not show up on film no matter how many times we tried. We suspect now he’s a vampire, but when we took him outside in the sun he didn’t sparkle or burst into flames. We’re just not sure at this point. Please visit our shop it helps us keep our motley crew employed. Thank you for your business for the last 40 years, we hope to be around for another 40 maybe even 50.”
