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

Top row: Michael Smith; middle row, left to right: Jessica Hernandez, Gordon Pomeroy and Bruce Giddens; and bottom row: Charlie Bush, Mari Mullen and Jon Preston. Michael Smith, executive director of Shipley Center in Sequim Michael Smith has served as the executive director of Shipley Center in Sequim since 2005. With more than 1,800 members, the nonprofit Shipley Center provides activities for senior adults that emphasize the center’s motto, “Friendship, Recreation, Education.” Smith is proud to work with a team of eight professional staff, 120 volunteers and a volunteer board of 11. Recent accomplishments include the establishment of a nonprofit café within Shipley Center that is open to the public, and leading out in planning and fundraising for a new 4,320-square-foot Health and Wellness Annex to better serve Shipley Center members and the community. Since 2005, Shipley Center membership has almost doubled, the number of activities, trips and classes have tripled, and the net worth of the organization has grown tenfold. A native of Houston, Texas, Smith grew up in Southern California, and has lived in Sequim since 1996 with his wife, Elizabeth. His degree is in psychology with a health professions minor. Smith previously served as the teen director for the Sequim Boys & Girls Club, and has experience in the insurance, banking, real estate and investment fields. The Smiths, active members of the Sequim Adventist Church, have a son and a daughter, two granddaughters and a Shih Tzu. Jessica Hernandez, executive director of the Port Angeles Food Bank Jessica Hernandez has served as the executive director of the Port Angeles Food Bank since 2014, bringing her vision and tireless hard work to engage and assist the most vulnerable members of the community. Since 2014, the organization has shifted to concentrate on providing the most nutritious food to clients that visit. Hernandez has prioritized securing locallysourced produce, providing fresh milk and eggs to each household, expanding the Friday Food Bag program that feeds nearly 500 local children each week during the school year, and launching a special program for clients affected by homelessness. In 2014, Hernandez worked with future Clallam County Commissioner Mark Ozias to form the Peninsula Food Coalition. The PFC was established to unify food rescue and distribution efforts of Peninsula food banks and meal programs, focusing on the West End and to include tribal partners. Hernandez has been a member of the Port Angeles Rotary Club since 2014 serving as president from 2015 to 2016. She also has served on the Port Angeles Regional Chamber of Commerce board since 2014 and is the current president. A graduate of the University of Washington,

Hernandez lived in Seattle managing a real estate law firm in Pioneer Square before relocating to the Peninsula in 2010 with her husband, Chris, and two small children, Seren and Stone. Crediting her tradition of service to the values taught to her by her mother she looks forward to future successes for the people of the Peninsula. Gordon Pomeroy, fire chief of East Jefferson Fire Rescue Gordon Pomeroy joined East Jefferson Fire Rescue department in May 2008 to head EJFR’s growing EMS Critical Care Transport Division. He was named fire chief in December 2009. Pomeroy brings 37 years of EMS experience as an EMT then a paramedic and instructor with Shoreline Fire Department. As the head of several private companies, he helped develop an early DNA identification process and has worked extensively with the motion picture industry as an EMS staff coordinator. Pomeroy was trained at Harborview Medical Center under the auspices of the University of Washington in 1980 and has obtained a large variety of fire service certifications throughout his long career. Today, Pomeroy heads up a fire district with an annual operating budget of $6.77 million, 35 career staff members and six fire stations. In 2016, EJFR responded to more than 4,500 calls for service in an area of approximately 68 square miles in and around Port Townsend. In addition, Pomeroy has been chairman of the East Jefferson County EMS and Trauma Council, and president of the Jefferson County Fire Chief’s Association. Bruce Giddens, Clallam County Parks supervisor Bruce Giddens was raised in Seattle and earned a Bachelor of Science degree from Washington State University. He has spent 34 years in the parks and recreation field. He worked as the maintenance lead at the Clallam County Fairgrounds from 1983 until 1990, when he accepted a park manager position at Lake Mayfield County Park in Lewis County. In 2000, Giddens was offered the park manager position at Salt Creek Recreation Area near Joyce. He was on-site when the Clallam County Parks, Fair and Facilities Department was awarded a federal grant to make improvements to the park’s infrastructure, which resulted in huge increase in the number of visitors staying at Salt Creek. In 2006, Giddens was selected for the new position of Clallam County Parks supervisor. He is responsible for supervising Salt Creek, Dungeness Recreation Area and Camp David Jr.’s park managers. He works to market these facilities and coordinates community outreach programs along with other administrative duties. Clallam County Parks has 21 park facilities and the Clallam County Fairgrounds.

When not engaged in government affairs, Bush enjoys hiking, kayaking, cycling, running, watching sports, reading, travel, video games, movies and meditation. Mari F. Mullen, executive director of the Port Townsend Main Street Program The nonprofit Port Townsend Main Street Program is an award-winning, accredited Main Street Program with a national profile. The program’s mission is to preserve, promote and enhance the city’s historic business districts. Mullen, the program’s executive director, is experienced in all four areas of the Main Street four-point approach (organization, design, economics and promotion), with special expertise in marketing and public relations, heritage tourism, promotions and event planning.  The program’s dedicated staff and volunteers are advocates for the city’s historic districts.  Volunteers donated nearly 2,000 hours in community service last year. The program coordinates beautification efforts (120-plus hanging flower baskets, downtown restroom maintenance, gardening, holiday decorating) and offers loan programs and resources, which support economic prosperity and historic preservation. They collaborate with numerous partners to support a vibrant, sustainable local economy. The Port Townsend Main Street Program coordinates 25 events which bring more than 12,000 people to town annually.   The program encourages local shopping and dining through year-round promotions. See more at ptmainstreet.org. Mullen’s interests include photography, writing and exploring small towns whenever she gets the chance. Photo by Elizabeth Becker/Seaport Photography Jon Preston, Forks City Council and Olympic National Park IT specialist Jon Preston has been making people laugh on the Olympic Peninsula for 28 years. He was a career National Park Service ranger, and recently moved into the IT field to make room for younger rangers beginning their careers. Preston also was elected to Position 5 on the Forks City Council for a four-year term. Preston’s love affair with the lush Peninsula landscape began when he was 7 years old. Preston grew up in Hawaii, and was staying with Washington relatives on a summer trip when he made his first trip to Olympic National Park. Two years later he visited Hurricane Ridge. His career has included being a scuba diver, U.S. Navy technician, theater arts major and plumber. Plumber certification took years of work and apprenticeship in California, but Preston knew he could go almost anywhere and would be able to find work. The day he finished the certification, his truck was already loaded for a drive to Port Angeles to be near the Olympic Mountains. He put an ad in the paper when he rolled into town that afternoon that said “plumber seeking employment,” with instructions to call a particular phone number, which happened to be the phone booth next to Odyssey Bookshop. Preston volunteered at Hurricane Ridge in 1991 and then worked his way into seasonal appointments within Olympic National Park.

Dr. Brooksby from Sequim Advanced Dental

In addition to General Dentistry training, Dr. Scott Brooksby completed his specialty training in prosthodontics at the San Francisco VA Prosthodontic Program in conjunction with the UCSF School of Dentistry. Dr Brooksby received his advanced surgical training with the Advanced Implant Study Group at Loma Linda Dental School in Southern California. He has been a practicing prosthodontist since 1990, and an advanced surgical prosthodontist since 1996. He has placed several thousand dental implants, performed over 300 sinus augmentations, and has done hundreds of bone grafts in preparation for placement of dental implants - all in an effort to restore the mouth to normal function. Over the last 33 years, Dr. Brooksby has developed the ability to solve a large variety of difficult dental problems. He has dealt with patients that are terrified of dentists, people that have multiple missing teeth and many that have pain that have not been properly diagnosed by others. Dr. Brooksby has many technologically advanced tools for precision work, including a CT scan machine and a computerized bite analysis program in his office. He also has an in-house lab technician who helps with a quick turnaround for repairs and new appliances. In addition to solving difficult dental problems, Dr. Brooksby also treats all adults and does cleanings, checkups, implants and hard-to-fit dentures. He has the reputation of avoiding doing what does not need to be done. Patients often comment that the visit to Dr. Brooksby was the funnest and most comfortable dental visit that they have ever had. We laugh without nitrous oxide! Dr. Brooksby moved to Sequim the summer of 2016 when his wife retired from teaching middle school in Las Vegas. His new office, Sequim Advanced Dental, is in the Sequim Safeway shopping center between Papa Murphy’s and Subway. In addition to practicing dentistry, Dr. Brooksby teaches others how to fly aircraft, is very active with Boy Scouts of America, and is also a member of Rotary International. He tries to exemplify the principles of Rotary International: ‘Is it the truth, is it fair to all concerned, does it build goodwill and better friendships and is it beneficial to all concerned?’

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

elected commissioners who oversee 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.

JAMESTOWN S’KLALLAM TRIBE The Jamestown S’Klallam tribe is one of 567 sovereign tribal nations in this country engaged in a government-to government relationship with the federal and state governments. 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 healthcare, 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 estimated 569 citizens. In addition to 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, 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.

The Makah tribe has called the Neah Bay area home since time immemorial. The name Makah was attributed to the tribe by the neighboring tribes, meaning “people generous with food” in the Salish language. In the 1970s, its southernmost village, Ozette, was discovered, and artifacts from Makah ancestors from 300 to 500 years ago were recovered. Approximately 1 percent of the 55,000 found artifacts are on display at its nationally renowned museum at the 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. Four observation decks on the Cape Flattery Trail provide spectacular views of the rugged rocks, birds, and jade waters of the Pacific Ocean. The trail is threefourths of a mile long. A Makah Recreation Pass is required to park at the trail head. The Makah Tribal Council is the elected governing body of the tribe on the Makah Reservation in Neah Bay, the central village of the Makah Reservation. The reservation is located on a portion of the tribe’s original tribal land as a result of a U.S. Treaty ratified in 1859. The council operates under a constitution and bylaws dated May 16, 1936. Serving the Makah Tribal Council is the Makah tribal organization, which is made up of employees and a managerial level staff of directors under a general manager. Elections for the council are held annually and each elected council member serves a staggered three-year term. The tribal government’s daily administration is managed by the general manager. Each program director reports directly to the general manager. The general manager is John Miller and tribal council members are Nate Tyler, chairman; Greig Arnold, vice chairman; Leah Neuneker, treasurer; and council members Marla Tolliver and Patrick DePoe. The tribe has about 2,900 enrolled members. In addition, the tribe owns and operates Makah Marina, a full-service, 200 slip marina.
