History finds a new home Sequim Museum & Arts sets opening for 6,500-square-foot facility BY MICHAEL DASHIELL Sequim Gazette

Woodcock Road roundabout slated for 2021
cut of the season
Medsker Road striping likely for this summer BY MATTHEW NASH Sequim Gazette
A roundabout at Woodcock Road and Sequim-Dungeness Way seems likely for 2021, according to Clallam County leaders. Clallam County engineer Ross Tyler said the project is taking shape as part of the county’s six-year Transportation Improvement Program. “We’ve been kicking it around for a few years,” he said. Tyler said at this juncture Clallam County commissioners would need to be the ones to stop the project, but his indicators from them say to “get it done.” “There’s certainly those who would prefer stop lights,” Tyler said. “They were shocked to learn that it would cost $4 million (but) that’s the reality. It’s why Clallam County doesn’t have stop lights.” Family members work together to cut the first lavender of the year on June 26 at the B&B Family Farm. Sequim Gazette photos by Matthew Nash

Signs of construction to continue in Sequim
Fir Street, Events Center and more tabbed for 2020 finish BY MATTHEW NASH Sequim Gazette
For 900-plus days, Sequim has been under construction — and that trend doesn’t look to change in 2020. City of Sequim staff recently revealed several big projects slated for 2020, ranging from the completion of the Guy Cole Events Center’s final remodel to continued road work on West Fir Street. The construction timeline follows the city’s current 6-year Capital Improvement Program, says City Engineer

Sequim’s Patterson takes lead with Fire District 2 BY JESSE MAJOR
east of Port Angeles, not including the city itself. It has four active stations, including ones in Gales Addition, the Dry Creek area, the Black Diamond area and the Deer Park area. It has a fifth station near Lake Sutherland that has closed due to lack of volunteers in the area and is used for storage, he said. Another challenge Patterson expects to contend with is the shortage of volunteers that fire departments across the country face. In recent years the district added six career firefighters and typically has between 40 and 45 volunteer firefighters, but the number of calls the district faces continues to grow. Patterson said that ideally the district would have 60 volunteers. Fire and medical response calls grew from 979 in 2011 to 1,774 in 2018, climbing 81 percent. “It’s difficult to recruit and retain volunteers,” Patterson said. “Life gets in the way and the department is getting busier. Demand has been steadily increasing and it’s several times a day that they are getting called out.” Patterson said he is thankful for Phillips’ support and that his retirement is “well-deserved.” “I appreciate the opportunity Chief Phillips gave me a couple years ago,” Patterson said. “He has been supportive of me moving into this position.”

Jake Patterson, who has spent most of his firefighting career in Clallam County, is taking charge of Clallam County Fire District 2 this week following the retirement of Chief Sam Phillips. “Jake is an extraordinary fire officer and I have the fullest confidence in his ability to take us to new levels in the fire district,” Phillips said on June 30. “I think he is going to serve the district well and I couldn’t have been happier to have someone working with me as I transition out.” Patterson, a Sequim resident, has been fighting fires since he started as a volunteer at the Port Angeles Fire Department in 1992. In 1994, the city of Richland hired him as a firefighter/EMT and he returned to Port Angeles as a career firefighter in 2000. In 2008 he was promoted to lieutenant. Clallam Fire District 2 hired Patterson in 2017 to serve as its deputy chief. Phillips said Patterson has earned a master’s degree in public administration and is in the final stages of the four-year Executive Fire Officer program at the National Fire Academy. Patterson, a former Marine, is looking forward to facing a number of challenges as he begins his tenure

as the district’s fire chief. “The fire district has done really well with managing its budget … but there are some big issues that no matter how well we prepare for and no matter how frugal we are with the public’s money, we’re going to need some help from the public,” Patterson said. He said the fire district needs to look at replacing its aging stations
and its aging vehicles, a multi-million dollar effort he said the district will likely ask voters to approve next year in the form of a bond. Exactly how much the district will ask for and exactly what the money would be used for is still in the works, he said. “Our fire stations were constructed over 60 years ago and with the expansion of our [advanced life

Clallam County Burn Restrictions are in effect and run through Oct. 1, 2018, unless conditions warrant an earlier closure, county fire marshal Annette Warren said last week. The restriction applies to all outdoor burning except recreational fires used for pleasure, religious, ceremonial, warmth, cooking or similar purposes. Recreational fires are permitted unless further banned by extreme weather conditions. Note: Recreational fires are limited to 3 feet in diameter, 2 feet in height. Fires for debris disposal are not legal under any circumstances and are not considered recreational, fire officials said. Warren said that if conditions arise the restrictions may be upgraded to a “high fire danger” that would prohibit all outdoor burning — including recreational fires. The exception is within the Olympic National Park and other controlled campgrounds.

WATER SAVING TIP OF THE MONTH In the Garden: TIME TO GO BROWN.
Don’t fret over your dry lawn in the summer. Much like the autumn leaves turn color and trees and shrubs go dormant each fall, grass goes dormant each summer. The grass will come back to life with the fall rains just like the trees and shrubs do each spring. The taller the turf, the deeper the roots. And the deeper the roots the healthier the plant. Remember: Deep, infrequent water encourages deeper roots. Frequent, shallow watering encourages shallow roots.

It’s time start planning your next fishing trip, following the release of the 2019-2020 Washington Sport Fishing Rules pamphlet, available now from the Washington Department of Fish and Wildlife. The new pamphlet is effective through June 30, 2020, and features rules and regulations for hundreds of lakes, rivers and marine areas around the state, as well as species including trout, salmon, shellfish, sturgeon and more, state officials said last week. Regulations are available online now at wdfw.wa.gov/fishing/regulations, and at hundreds of license dealers and WDFW offices throughout Washington state. Find a nearby WDFW license dealer at wdfw.wa.gov/licenses/dealers. The Legislature this year approved new boating regulations meant to protect endangered Southern Resident Killer Whales. All boaters must stay 400 yards away when in front of or behind orcas, and 300 yards away at all other times. Any boat within a half-mile of the whales must also reduce speed to 7 knots or less. Learn more about WDFW’s orca conservation efforts at wdfw.wa.gov/species-habitats/ at-risk/species-recovery/orca. State officials issue updates and corrections to the pamphlet as needed. Review these changes by visiting wdfw.wa.gov/ fishing/regulations and selecting “20192020 sport fishing rules.” Anglers can also stay up to date with regulations by downloading the Fish Washington mobile app on their smartphone.

Friends, family honor longtime community advocate Museum dedicates gallery to Judith McInnes Tozzer BY MICHAEL DASHIELL Sequim Gazette
Years ago a school-aged Jeff Tozzer noticed one of his classmates had clothes very similar to his. In fact, they were his clothes. As it turns out, his mother decided to donate some of her son’s apparel to a less fortunate youth. “He needed them more,” Jeff Tozzer said Saturday to friends and family, gathered to celebrate the life of his mother Judy Tozzer. “That’s how she taught our family about giving.” Dozens of community members shared stories, snacks and more at the dedication of the Judith McInnes Tozzer Art Gallery on June 29, the first official event in the Sequim Museum & Arts’s new, not-quite-open facility on North Sequim Avenue. “She believed this community had helped her,” Jeff Tozzer said. “Dad joked she would have given to the Kennedys.” A fifth generation Sequim native, Judith McInnes Tozzer died on July 25, 2018, in Port Angeles, leaving behind a legacy of advocating for needy children throughout the Sequim area as well as numerous civic projects. She served as a Sequim School

6,500-square-foot building to house the museum’s array of local artifacts, art, displays, interactive exhibits and more. “I’m really proud of how this is coming out,” Stipe said last week, standing amidst a half-dozen projects with painters, carpenters and other volunteers buzzed by. Museum volunteers welcome the public to a grand reception on Saturday, July 6, an event to include special guest Matt Dryke, gold medalist from the 1984 Olympic Games. Other special guests include photographer Ross Hamilton, “Strait Press” author Bill Lindstrom with Brown Maloney, and the museum’s board of trustees. Thereafter, the facility will be open 11 a.m.-4 p.m., Tuesday-Saturday, with private tours by appointment. Admission rates are still being figured out, Stipe said, but the staff will be accepting donations. Stipe listed dozens of individuals and businesses who have either donated money, time, in-kind services or all three: Dan Smith and the Nolan family for wood donations, Larry Somerville and her husband Bob Stipe for various woodworking projects, Bob Lampert for photo donations, and contributions and discounts from a multitude of business, including Lakeside Industricts, Hartnagel Buidling Supply, Clear
Board director starting in 1988 and was part of the board that promoted the successful bond vote to construct Greywolf Elementary School. Tozzer also volunteered with Guardian Ad Litem, a program that sought to give voice to every child in the Clallam the legal system. She sought more education later in life and at age 50 she earned a bachelor of arts degree, then was hired to supervise the Guardian Ad Litem program. She managed 45 volunteers and oversaw the needs of hundreds of area youths. At the time of her retirement, Clallam County as the only jurisdiction in the state that saw every child in Child Protective Services had an advocate. Tozzer was active with the Sequim Alumni Association and planned several reunions, including the first Sequim all-school reunion. “She was in on the beginning of everything: the (Sequim pioneer family histories) books, the museum, pioneer dinners … she never stopped performing for her community,” Judy Reandeau Stipe, executive director of Sequim Museum & Arts said Saturday. “She was in love with her family and that branched out to the community.” Several items from Tozzer’s per-
Image, Doghouse Powder Coating and Clallam Co-op Farm and Garden, among others. A big thanks, Stipe noted in months past, were workers who allowed the museum to take several loads of wood from the former Sequim Elementary School — and most recently the Sequim Community School, which was deconstructed last year. The 20-foot-long, 16-inchwide, 2 3/4-inch thick pieces of old growth timber — 30 in all — line the new museum “‘How did we do this?’ It’s easy. It’s all these people standing behind us,” Stipe said.
Making the move The origins of Sequim Museum & Arts dates back more than 40 years. Stipe note in the spring edition of “The Prairie Review,” the museum’s quarterly newsletter, that “farm artifacts, old bones or logging stuff were dropped off with the town clerk when locals paid utility bills” at the Sequim Town Hall, where Gladys Holmes and Ruby Trotter stacked relics on desks, shelves, in a utility closet — and later opened the jail cell for historical display (prisoners where no longer kept in town, Stipe notes). In the mid-1970s when a group of community members on a bicentennial committee developed the idea of starting a community museum. After a couple of years of exhibiting in several locations around town, the community cut the ribbon

sonal art collection line the walls of a portion of the new museum — the majority of them scenes of her family’s homestead in Dungeness. “She didn’t paint herself, but she supported local artists,” Stipe said. Tozzer (then McInnes) married Sequim local Larrie “Red” Tozzer in 1966 and, in 1975 moved to a 20-acre cattle farm ion Atterberry Road. She and Red later divorced but remained close friends and business partners, family members note. In 1993, Tozzer renovated her family farmhouse on Jamestown Road and moved there. In 2014, soon after being diagnosed with Alzheimer’s disease,

Tozzer wrote a note to friends and family. She wrote, “Everybody has something. My ‘something’ has provided me the opportunity to get things in order and I am thankful for that.” Tozzer also recorded an interview for the museum that family members shared Saturday (you can see the interview online at www.youtube.com/ watch?v=0RYTnhkp1FE). Always seeking to make things a bit better, family members note
“‘How did we do this?’ It’s easy. It’s all these people standing behind us.” Judy Reandeau Stipe executive director, Sequim Museum & Arts’ new facility
for the Sequim-Dungeness Museum on May 10, 1979, at 175 W. Cedar St. — on the site of the former Sequim post office. In 1992, the museum merged with the Peninsula Cultural Arts Center to become the Museum & Arts Center in the SequimDungeness Valley. Three years later the organization grew once again, acquiring the historical, two-story Dungeness Schoolhouse on Towne Road. The schoolhouse is a rentable venue for community use. Thanks to various groups using the building for reunions, musicals and plays, weddings and birthdays, yoga, table tennis, homeschool lessons and more, Stipe said the organization is able to pay for its four facilities (the schoolhouse itself, plus the Cedar Street exhibit center, museum administration building and the new Cowan complex). Stipe joined the museum board about six-and-a-half years ago and along with others began the groundwork for the new facility. Albert Haller, a longtime Sequim logger, land developer and later an education advocate before his death in 1992, purchased the land on North Sequim Avenue to someday house a museum. In March of 2016, the
museum got a big boost toward the new facility when they received and sold three properties courtesy of land endowments from West End pioneer John Cowan and his wife Inez — including two timber properties on Lake Ozette Road and off Highway 112, and a home in Port Angeles. Despite some proverbial bumps along the way, Stipe credited a number of local government officials with helping with the process — in particular City of Sequim operations manager Ty Brown, utilities manager Pete Tjemsland, Community Development Director Barry Berezowsky and former assistant city manager Joe Irvin, among others. “I’m over the moon,” Stipe said. “The biggest thing for me is it’s (done) the Sequim way. It makes me cry sometimes.”
Exhibits and features Museum officials bring plenty something old (from the previous exhibit center) along with some things new to the Cowan facility. A section of the museum heralds former Sequim resident Joe Rantz and fellow members of the Olympic Games gold medal-winning member of the 1936 University of Washington crew team. Judy Willman, one of
Tozzer used to pick up garbage in her neighborhood when she walked a 3.6-mile loop in the Jamestown neighborhood — a practice she kept for 10 years. “We should use her as an example of what we should do for our community,” she said. Tozzer was is survived by Larrie Tozzer, children Jana Grasser (Steven Grasser) of Sequim and Jeff Tozzer (Doug Miner) of Seattle, and grandchildren Alisha and Joe Grasser, both of Sequim.
Rantz’s daughers, donated larger-than-life photo boards of the team members. Complimenting the section is the George Pocock rowing shell gifted to the Sequim museum by the Olympic Peninsula Rowing Association in 2015; previously supported near ground level, the shell hangs from the new facility’s rafters. A new feature to the museum’s traditional offering of artist space is the Judith McInnes Tozzer art gallery featuring her own art with others from Joy McCarter’s piece on the grain elevator to Dale Faulstich’s Jamestown S’Klallam Tribe-inspired artwork. Each month the gallery will be open for community artists to display their work (a fee applies), Stipe said. A section of the museum will be labeled the Albert Haller Library. Named after Haller, an lifelong advocate of education whose foundation Stipe says was a tremendous support in getting the facility built, the section of the museum will also house a “children’s corner.” Two murals from the originally installed on the Lehman’s grocery storefront from 1995-2000 make their way into the museum exhibits as well. Visitors will get a chance to peer into the area’s logging history with an exhibit that showcases antique logging equipment and a wall-sized photo of the Dungeness Logging Company’s haul via the railway. A milk “parlor” spotlights artifacts from Sequim’s long
history as a dairy area — including a life-sized cow replica. A large, garage-style sliding door allows museum volunteers access to bring in antique tractors, cars and the like, such as the museum’s 1907 REO Runabout. Other features include restored theater chairs from the Sequim Opera House and signs from businesses come and gone, such as “Southwoods Mall” and “Sofie’s Grill,” along with signs declaring “We’re Rollin’ to Nolan’s, Best Ice Cream in the Valley” and “Welcome to Flipper Drive In.” A section not expected to be completed by the grand opening will feature tribal artifacts and more from the Jamestown S’Klallam Tribe, Stipe said. Returning is the ever-popular Manis mastodon exhibit, the showcase of Emanuel (“Manny”) and Clare Manis’ archaeological dig that rewrote human history in North America. The museum will have mastodon-inspired shirts for sale, Stipe said. Community groups and school children Chimacum, Whidbey Island, Shelton and other communities visit the Sequim museum, Stipe said, and most of the come for the mastodon display. “We are asking everyone to overlook some unfinished items because construction is ongoing,” Stipe said. “Opening the new museum was the focus. Our volunteers are working feverishly to get the place ready for visitors and the budget is still tight.”

Civic Center to feature 150 solar panels Humanitarian fund going strong through police effort BY MATTHEW NASH Sequim Gazette
In the last month, Sequim city council has discussed an array of issues ranging from solar energy projects to waste management to humanitarian efforts. Here is a summary of some of the upcoming discussions and efforts in Sequim:
Sunny roofs ahead The Sequim Civic Center, 152 W. Cedar St., will soon feature about 150 solar panels on one portion of its roof. City Councilors unanimously agreed on June 24 to match a Department of Commerce grant worth $75,000 towards the approximate $285,000 project to install 50 kilowatt panels. David Garlington, public works director, said city staff budgeted $105,000 for a solar project this year, and have $25,000 available in the city’s Real Estate Excise Tax fund. However, he said the city has an $85,000 shortfall that will need to come from the city’s general fund. Garlington said the solar panels will save the city about $3,700 a year in electricity and for the city’s investment it would take about 56-plus years to pay for itself. “I wouldn’t say we’re doing this for the economic opportunity,” he said, as the city council looks to reduce its carbon footprint. “It’s putting our money where our mouth is.”
and installing signage and equipment. The city will also own the equipment and pay for electricity and determine user fees. Ann Soule, the city’s resource manager, said on June 10 the fees will be determined this fall for the chargers. City councilor Jennifer States said the price for the chargers seems reasonable (at about $3,000 each) and the city should consider installing more at the site and across the city. The interlocal agreement does allow for more, said David Garlington, Sequim public works director. Mayor Dennis Smith said there are two signs by the Clallam Transit Center for EV EV charger charging but no equipment, coming to PUD site so he suggested partnering Both Clallam County PUD with that service for future commissioners and City chargers. of Sequim city councilors agreed to cost share the City of Sequim staffing installation of two electric suggestions made Residents can share their vehicle chargers at the PUD’s former building at the corner opinion at 6 p.m. Monday, of Govan and East Washing- July 8 at a public hearing on proposed budget amendton Street.

City staff list the pay range while the City of Sequim will pay for trenching, painting as $52,418-$67,205 per year, With the panels in place, Garlington said it’d prevent about 22 carbon tons of waste each year Solar energy will be used in the building and can be used if the power goes out in the area, he said. With the placement of the panels, Garlington said the building essentially receives full coverage of the sun throughout the day. City Councilor Jennifer States suggested city staff look into cost for a small storage system for the electricity produced. Garlington said the city has applied for a second private grant but is unsure if or when it will come through for this project.
From page A-1 Matt Klontz, which he and city councilors plan to update this month. As part of a proposed updated sixyear plan, Klontz said 2020 will likely keep construction going all of next year as well. “We know with a lot of certainty, the projects (scheduled) will move forward in 2020,” Klontz said. Tentative Capital Improvement Program projects for parks, streets, buildings and more could be approved by city councilors on July 22 as a plan, with next year’s projects approved for the 2019-2020 budget later in the year.
Building projects The city budgeted $100,000 to finish the breakout rooms of the Guy Cole Event Center. Klontz said the city plans to advertise construction this year and will close the facility down late December-early February for construction. This would complete the third phase of the remodel, Klontz said, one that started with the main hall and the kitchen. Additionally, the city plans next year to permanently install Emergency Operations Center equipment in the Sequim Transit Center for a
cost of $50,000. Klontz said this moves equipment from tubs and speeds up efficiency. “The process (for setup) can take up to 30 minutes so that’s a significant savings (in an emergency),” City Manager Charlie Bush said. Also, city staff will install a fuel station in the city shop in 2020; the tentative cost estimate is $817,000. Over the six-year plan, there are about $1 million in planned improvements and expansion to the city shop. In 2024, city staff plan tabbed $300,000 for installing citywide broadband. Each year of the plan, the city’s new Peoples’ Project! will continue at $150,000 annually. This year, councilors plan to follow residents’ recommendation from a community voting effort to fund water bottle refilling/drinking fountain stations in Sequim parks, and add solar powered compact trash and recycling cans.
Streets Construction along Fir Street by Sequim schools will cost more than $3.8 million in 2020 through various funds for road, sidewalk and water/ sewer needs, Klontz said. “We’ll still be under construction in 2020, but hopefully be physically complete this (late June) time next year,” he said. Klontz said the irrigation main

which will be adjusted for the remainder of the year. Garlington and Barry Berezowksy, director of Community Development, seek a fulltime Development Review Engineer ($52,418-$67,205) to help keep up with development review workload and increase on-site inspection of utility and infrastructure installations. Berezowksy said in the next five years the city anticipates about 827 new lots coming in from current proposals. City staff said the position would split time between the city’s engineering and community development departments.

along the road has been difficult and flooded work areas a few times. “It’s great we’re replacing it,” he said. “It is a problem.” Next year, the city plans to continue its efforts to rehabilitate pavement at an estimate $229,000 in subdivisions seeing utility trenches settling creating large uneven areas. City staff plan to begin preliminary work on reaching out to community members about completing streets like Prairie Street with new sidewalks and lighting as they look for new ways to create east-west throughways south of Washington Street by new potential commercial areas. From 2020-2023, about $3.5 million is scheduled for planning and construction. Sequim also received about $1.1 million with a Safe Routes to School grant to build a sidewalk on the west side of Sequim Avenue from Hendrickson Road to Old Olympic Highway and improve the roundabout. Next year, city staff say they anticipate designing and purchasing right-of-way for up to $350,000 and spending more than $1.1
million in 2021 for construction.
Sewer, Water, Stormwater and Parks City staff budged nearly $1.1 million to increase capacity for handling solid waste at the Water Reclamation Facility. Klontz said they haven’t secured funding yet but that they plan to pursue more grant and loan opportunities. The facility will tentatively see $335,000 go toward odor control after being put on hold due to staff backlog, Klontz said. Grants help pay for more than $300,000 in stormwater upgrades with $190,000 going to infiltration facilities at the southwest corner of Seventh Avenue and Washington Street. Additionally, $113,000 supports creating a discharge system to place roadway water on Brown Road into Bell Creek.
Public works director David Garlington said that their water meter readers use a Bluetooth device directly over meters, located typically apart from the homes. He said the hand-held wand requests information from the meter, which sends it through blue tooth and that’s the end of the signal. “We’re not pursuing it with any vigor at this point,” Garlington said. “I want to be convinced these things are going to act in a safe and healthy way … and I have not had it proven to me it makes economic sense. It’s a big cost to (install smart meters) … From Public Works’ point-of-view, we’re not anywhere close to making a recommendation.” Garlington said he plans to post more information about the signals the city’s current meters emit on the city’s website. Additionally, Bush said city councilors sent a letter to the FCC a few years ago requesting more local control when it comes to electromagnetic radiation signals. There aren’t plans to send another letter, Bush said, because he’s uncertain how effective it would be.
Solid waste discussions ongoing City staff plans to reenter negotiations with Waste Connections, the city’s trash, recycling and lawn waste provider. David Garlington, public works director, said they have options to send out a

Inadequately-sized piping will be removed near Bell Street and Hemlock Street in 2020, too. City staff plan to spend up to $100,000 for a water and sewer utility rate study to be conducted leading to discussions on future rates in 2020. Another $50,000 is slated for a study of the city’s parks impact fee and master plan. City staff look to pave/overlay parking lots in Carrie Blake Community Park and the Water Reuse Demonstration Site for nearly $800,000 in 2021. They also look to upgrade Kirner Park playground equipment in 2022 ($318,000). For more information about Sequim’s proposed Capital Improvement Program, visit www.sequimwa. gov or call 360-683-4908.

Since the program began, it’s helped more than 350 people with food, gas, gift cards for various needs, lodging and more. “Historically, cops were doing it out of their own pockets,” Madison said. A few examples include providing busing for a woman seeking drug treatment, and providing lodging for a family seeking respite from the poor air quality during the summer’s forest fires. In 2018, police provided 70 Safeway food gift cards; six Visa cards for diapers, clothes and toiletries; 42 transportation vouchers; 27 lodging vouchers, and 11 food assistance requests.

Tourist bus ‘stuck’ at lavender farm BY MATTHEW NASH
Several of the 18 passengers made the most of the two-hour stay by touring the farm and enjoying the fields. At about 5 p.m., the bus was freed by a tow truck from All City Autobody of Port Townsend. As passengers readied to board the bus, many said they enjoyed their time in Sequim/Dungeness area that day after visits to the Olympic Game Farm, Black Bear Diner and the lavender farm.
A tourist group got an extended stay at the B&B Family Farm, 5883 Old Olympic Highway, on June 26 when their Freedom Tours NW, Inc. bus got stuck halfway in the driveway and Old Olympic Highway after taking a sharp turn. The highway was partially blocked as farm owners and the bus driver attempted to free the vehicle.

Warming center recruiting volunteers for winter SEQUIM GAZETTE STAFF While Sequim enters its warmest part of the year, advocates for the Sequim Community Warming Center are gearing up to help residents make it through the next cold spell. The two-year-old warming center provides a secure, indoor environment on the coldest nights
from October through March to homeless individuals and others. It also provides meals and snacks on site and take-away items, including blankets, warm clothing, sleeping bags, raincoats, personal hygiene items and water bottles. The warming center is staffed in two shifts, each with a paid supervisor and several volunteers. Center director Jean Pratschner is recruit-
ing new volunteers now because fundraising for next winter’s operations kicks off soon and she hopes to show prospective donors that the center is prepared to meet its new goals, center advocates noted in a press release last week. Pratschner said she hopes to keep the facility open every night for those five months; at a minimum, she is seeking to open the center any
night with a predicted temperature of 40 degrees or less. The center’s budget has restricted the operations to nights when the expected low temperature is 36 degrees or lower. She noted that even with a largely volunteer staff the center’s proposed additional nights of operation will substantially increase expenses.
In the 2018-2019 fall/winter season, the center was open for 82 nights, and during an extended snowy period in February 2019 it was also open for six days. To learn more about volunteering at the Sequim Community Warming Center, contact Pratschner at 505-264-0278 or lpratschner@ gmail.com.

State’s next House speaker to make history This month’s selection of a new speaker for the state House of Representatives may be the year’s most important contest for Democrats in Washington. Seattle Democrat Frank Chopp, one of the most dominant forces in Washington state politics, has relinquished the seat of power in which he sat since the turn of the century. His tenure, unprecedented in length, ended in early May. Four women lawmakers are vying to succeed him — and become the first woman in this position in state history. It’s a quartet of talent: Monica Guest Stonier of Vancouver, the majority Opinion floor leader and current member of caucus leadership; Laurie Jinkins Jerry Cornfield of Tacoma, chairwoman of the Civil Rights and Judiciary Committee; June Robinson of Everett, vice chairwoman of the Appropriations Committee, and Gael Tarleton of Seattle, chairwoman of the Finance Committee. Each enjoys support among the 57 members of the House Democratic Caucus, which will meet July 31 to make a decision. A couple rounds of balloting are likely before any of them garners the required majority. This is a critical vote. Whoever wins will lead the caucus in the 2020 session. Then they will be tasked with doing whatever’s needed to retain every one of those 57 seats in next year’s elections. Recruiting candidates, raising money and crafting campaign messages are among the requisite skills for this part of the job. This change of power coincides with a transformation of the caucus itself. Its membership is its most ethnically diverse. Women hold a majority of its seats. And its progressive bent is as dominant as ever. Big questions loom for each individual member. Will they want someone with a progressive soul and pragmatic political temperament like Chopp, which seemed to work well the past two decades? Or will they want a person willing to push a progressive agenda more aggressively, even if it might earn a periodic rebuke from editorial boards and cost a seat or two in a future election? How important is it for the next speaker to get along with Republicans and build alliances with Senate Democrats? In the 2019 session, Democrats used strong legislative majorities and partnership with Democratic Gov. Jay Inslee to enthusiastically expand most areas of state government and to increase a raft of taxes to cover the tab. However, not everything got done in the view of some House Democrats. They are drawing up an ambitious to-do list for next year that they’ll want the next speaker to embrace. Thus far it’s been a pretty quiet race. These women respect each other so there’s no badmouthing, overtly or in the shadows. They insist there won’t be, and are committed to assuring the caucus will be united once the outcome is known. Ahead of the vote, each woman is contacting all of her colleagues, by phone or in person, or both. They’re getting asked about their vision for caucus leadership and strategy for winning elections. There’s talk about specific policies, and internal matters as well. In the meantime, the Members of Color Caucus and the Black Caucus conducted sit-down interviews with each candidate earlier this month. On July 14, the two plan to host a forum at which they hope all four candidates will be together to answer questions from members who show up. “We are absolutely not making any endorsement. We are looking to provide avenues for our members to get information,” said Rep. Javier Valdez, D-Seattle, a leader of the 16-person Members of Color Caucus. “This is a very historic decision we’re making.” Contact The Herald (Everett) columnist Jerry Cornfield at 360-352-8623, jcornfield@herald net.com or on Twitter, @dospueblos.

The cosmic garage sale Like it or not, people die. At some point, we may even get the chance to consider our own deaths. In the case of my quirky friend, Barry, I believe he sees his death as a final act of fractious behavior, a flipping of the bird at the rest of us old folks at home. “Deal with it. I’m outta here.” He is currently From the planning his final B ack Nine garage sale. Sifting through the Linda B. Myers debris of his past, he is picking out pay-dirt that others will surely desire: the wolf-head neckerchief holder he wore as a boy scout back in the Dark Ages, his collection of ‘lovable loser’ baseball cards from the 1977 Chicago Cubs, swell things like that. We got to talking about the other kind of stuff you leave between, the less material stuff. When you die, who is the invisible YOU that will stick in the minds of the people who knew you? What will they be, the items in your Cosmic Garage Sale? Is there a personality trait you’d like people to recall when someone mentions your name? My sister would like to be remembered as ‘open to possibilities.’ I hope to be remembered as ‘generous.’ What would please you the most? It might be nice to have your personage be remembered for a particular act. Like The
Man who Shot Liberty Valance (although I think that requires having a good lyricist close at hand). Or maybe you’d like something more personal: to be the name-inthe-blank when people recall, “Remember what a great time it was when ol’ ____ ... ” Of course, you can sweep a lot of debris into your Cosmic Garage Sale, as well. Your feelings of guilt or shame or embarrassment or failure. Stick that garbage in the to-go pile today. No one else will want it either since they already have plenty of their own. But how freeing to dump your emotional trash before you yourself are recycled. Okay, back to attractive attributes. Humorous, kind, compassionate, instructive. My advice is to start acting on your desired quality now if you have a hope in hell of this ethereal trait outlasting your corporeal crate in the minds of others. It’s never too soon to start filling your Cosmic Garage Sale. Note: I’m speaking to decent folk here with normal aspirations. I realize a few of you might be budding Hannibal Lectors or Mr. Hydes. If so, keep your crazy crap to yourself. Meanwhile, the rest of us will start a GoFundMe to buy you a ticket off the Olympic Peninsula to anywhere but here. See? That’s me, being generous. Linda B.

LETTERS TO THE EDITOR Disparate approaches to viewpoints Regarding “Letters to the Editor” (“Consider the bias,” and “Democrat leaders responsible for border mess,” Sequim Gazette, June 26): Two very divergent letters were printed.
One of the letters seemed reasonable, the other a fanatical rant. It definitely exploits the very sad differences. I believe a true sampling of the news (instead of sound bites) would show a more accurate picture. Donna MacLean Sequim

$50,000 for out-of-state students,” Quillette noted. There are a variety of other approaches which can make higher education more affordable. For example, in Kalamazoo, Michigan, wealthy anonymous donors pooled their money and started a free-college tuition program. It is one of more than 300 cities and states around the country offering a variety of tuition assistance programs. WSJ reports since 2006, the donors contributed $124 million in tuition subsidies for nearly 5,400 students. The Upjohn Institute, which has been tracking Kalamazoo Promise, found that tuition assistance needs to be augmented with additional student career counseling in the K-12 system and other living costs for students. Many small business owners in Washington state offer college scholarships and combined them with work and other benefits. Hopefully, the up-front funding offsets the need for loans and make it possible for students to complete their college education or technical skill training. For example, in Seattle, Dick’s Drive-Ins offers employees who work 20 hours a week for at least six months
and continue to work at least 20 hours a week while going to school to have access to a $25,000 scholarship over four years. In addition Dick’s pays higher than minimum wage, provides an employer paid health plan, and pays up to $9,000 in child-care expenses. Other donors are stepping forward. Billionaire Robert Smith, founder and CEO of Vista Equity Partners, surprised Morehouse College’s 400 graduating seniors announcing his family is paying off their student loans. The estimated value of the gift was $40 million. He also challenged other donors to do the same. Making higher education affordable is a national priority. The focus needs to be on approaches which are affordable and effective for students and their families. The issue is large than just having the federal government provide free-tuition for all. Don C.

Emphasis on boating safety set for holiday SEQUIM GAZETTE STAFF The Clallam County Sheriff’s Office will be conducting heightened enforcement targeting boating under the influence as part of the national Operation Dry Water campaign. Law enforcement will be focused on educating boaters about safe boating practices, which includes boating sober, and enforcing the state’s boating under the influence laws.
With the summer boating season underway and the July 4 holiday approaching, the Clallam County Sheriff’s Office reminds boaters that impaired boating is against the law. Operating a vessel under the influence of alcohol or drugs is illegal on all bodies of water and can lead to serious injuries and consequences. In Washington state it is illegal to operate a vessel with a blood-alcohol content (BAC) level of .08 or higher — the
same as it is to operate a vehicle. “The accidents and tragedies that happen because individuals chose to drive drunk or impaired, on land or on the water, are preventable,” Clallam County Sheriff Bill Benedict said in a press release last week. “As law enforcement, it is our job to do all we can to ensure the safety of our recreational boaters and paddlers. That is why the Clallam County Sheriff’s Office is joining other
states and agencies across the country to do our part in keeping boaters safe and preventing accidents related to boating under the influence.” Alcohol is the leading contributing factor in recreational boating deaths, and a major contributor to accidents, according to U.S. Coast Guard Recreational boating statistics (2017). Visit operationdrywater.org for more information about boating under the influence.
Quilcene man acquitted of one sex charge BY JEANNIE MCMACKEN Olympic Peninsula News Group
Timonthy J. Rondeau Jr. of Quilcene, one of 10 defendants in the 2018 Net Nanny operation, has been found not guilty by a jury on one charge and had another dismissed by a judge. Rondeau, 32, was charged with attempted rape of a child. A jury found him not guilty on June 17, according to Deputy Prosecuting Attorney Julie St. Marie.
St. Marie said the evidence “was less” than the state had on the other defendants. She said the jury could not agree on a second charge of communicating with minors, a gross misdemeanor, which led Judge Keith Harper to declare a hung jury and dismiss the charge. Juries will hear cases against the two remaining defendants David L. Sprague of Sequim on Aug. 12 and Isaac J. Boyd of Sequim in December.
St. Marie said the other defendants in the internet sting operation were found guilty or pleaded guilty to charges. Thomas Gale, 53, of Port Townsend died before his arraignment. The 10 men were arrested in the March 22-25, 2018 as multi-agency sting, Individuals answered online ads, then drove to an address expecting to have sex with minors, law enforcement said. More than 60 law enforcement officials participated in the operation.
Olympia man sentenced for Sequim burglaries BY ROB OLLIKAINEN Olympic Peninsula News Group
An Olympia man has been sentenced to four years in prison for a pair of burglaries that occurred in the Sequim area last year, the Clallam County Sheriff’s Office said. Collin J. R. Kennedy, 28, was sentenced on June 26 to 48 months confinement plus one year of community custody after he pleaded guilty to two counts of residential burglary and single counts of forgery and heroin possession, court papers said. The Clallam County Sheriff’s Office said Kennedy stole about $2,880 worth of items from an East Sequim Bay Road residence in June 2018 and more than $5,300 worth of items from a Lost Mountain Road residence last November. Superior Court Judge Lauren Erickson sentenced Kennedy to the term recommended by deputy prosecuting attorney Matthew Roberson and defense attorney Charlie Commeree. Kennedy was charged in two other cases

with second-degree theft and possession of methamphetamine. Those cases were dismissed pursuant to a plea agreement, court papers said. Clallam County Sheriff’s Deputy James Dixon said Kennedy broke into a residence on the 1700 block of East Sequim Bay Road and stole a $2,000 computer, necklaces and other items June 6, 2018, according to the affidavit for probable cause. The Sheriff’s Office used fingerprints and surveillance footage to identify Kennedy in
the East Sequim Bay Road burglary, Chief Criminal Deputy Brian King said. Kennedy broke into a home on the 3800 block of Lost Mountain Road last Nov. 28 and stole a $3,000 digital camera and lens, a $2,000 laptop computer, a $300 camera with no lens and other items, Deputy Matthew Murphy said in court documents. The owner of the home interrupted the burglary and chased Kennedy into the driveway, Murphy said. The victim grabbed hold of Kennedy and kneed him, but Kennedy was able to escape by pulling himself out of his coat, Murphy said in the affidavit for probable cause. About three hours later, a resident on the 600 block of Lost Mountain Road told deputies that he had captured video surveillance of a man approaching his door. The person in the footage was later identified as Kennedy, Murphy said. The Sheriff’s Office also used footprints to connect Kennedy to the burglary, King said. Kennedy was being held last week at the Washington Corrections Center near Shelton.

Hospital and charter review candidates offer views at forum BY CONOR DOWLEY Sequim Gazette
Residents got to hear viewpoints from prospective hospital commissioners and charter review board members at the League of Women Voters of Clallam County’s June 27. Three candidates for Olympic Medical Center (OMC) commissioner, District 1, position 1, along with 10 candidates for the Clallam County Charter Review Commission, District 1, at the forum held at the Sequim Transit Center. Warren Pierce, Nate Adkisson and Ann Marie Henninger, candidates on the ballot for OMC commissioner, gave opening statements as to their experiences, qualifications, and goals for serving in the position. Following the Aug. 6 primary, two of the three candidates vie for the position in the General Election on Nov. 5. Pierce and Adkisson have backgrounds in business management and the financial sector, respectively; they both said they want to help OMC run more efficiently, with Adkisson also wanting to find a way to help ease the financial burdens on those seeking medical care in the area.
From page A-9 Request for Proposal for a different provider, but Waste Connections would likely be the only bidder since the next closest providers are in Kitsap County or the West End of Clallam County. He said some of their discussion points will include rates, frequency changes for pick-up, low income rates, snowbird/vacation hold options, and more. The idea of contracting construction waste was tabled, as city councilor Brandon Janisse said if the city did that it would likely shutter a local business. Garlington said Waste Connections’ rates for garbage/recycling pick-up are fair and city staff field a few calls a month about their service, but they are mostly
A registered nurse, Henninger said she seeks to help improve the financial state of OMC by helping improve service reimbursement, but also spoke of OMC needing help with workforce recruitment and retention as well as improving provider access. When asked about abortion access through the hospital, both Pierce and Adkisson expressed their pro-choice sentiments while saying that they don’t know enough about the entire situation as far as hospital policies and legal requirements to comment further. Henninger stated that she does “not believe abortion is health care.” When given a chance to follow up on that statement later, she added that while she does believe that people who want access to abortions should have it, she doesn’t think that hospitals should be the ones providing abortions. The opioid crisis was brought up as well, with all three candidates agreeing that OMC can do more. Pierce said he feels opiates are too cheap to acquire, and Adkisson spoke of the difficulties of “not in my backyard” attitudes in the area making offering treatment options challenging. The candidates were also
asked about the possibility of a hospital being built in Sequim, but they all spoke of the financial challenges that represents given steep Medicare reimbursement cuts in the region, as well as legal restrictions that make building a new hospital in the area difficult.
related to code enforcement of neighbors rather than the actual service provided. Councilors briefly discussed the differences between mandating or not garbage service. City councilor Jennifer States said that with non-mandatory collection, Waste Connections would be uncertain how many customers it would have in the city and costs could rise for users, so it’s to the city’s advantage to require it. City Attorney Kristina Nelson-Gross said city staff has not been enforcing mandatory garbage service to residents — despite it being required by the city’s Municipal Code. However, she said she wouldn’t send a case for lack of garbage service to court. “We need to come back and change the code to enforce this,” Nelson-Gross said.
Earlier this year, city councilors changed an ordinance that allows Waste Connections the ability to cut-off customers after 90 days of non-payment. Waste Connections staff said it’s reduced monthly non-payments from about $40,000 a month to $10,000 in the city.

Charter review highlighted Ten candidates for the county charter review commission had a chance to speak to those in attendance. Five of the ten candidates for District 1 will be elected in November, and will begin their review process in January. Candidates present were Jim Stoffer, Ted Miller, Donald Hatler, Tony Corrado, David Lotzgesell, Gary DeKorte, Alex Fane, Candace Pratt and Judith Parker. Sue Erzen was out of the area, and sent a representative to read a prepared statement. The candidates were asked to speak of their qualifications and intended focus while on the commission, and many of the candidates spoke of environmental concerns, ranging from climate change to natural resource usage. Lotzgesell spoke pas-
Guy Cole Event Center rentals changing In an effort to increase usage at the recently remodeled Guy Cole Events Center, rates are changing at the facility in Carrie Blake Community Park. The new rates cost $40 per hour for a city resident for a minimum of two hours and a maximum of 10 hours, or $48 for out-of-city residents. City councilors voted unanimously for the changes on June 24. Previously, nonprofits could rent the facility for free at any time. Now it’s available to them MondayThursday (with Thursday available to paying customers if needed). Those looking to rent
sionately about wanting to clean up abandoned and deteriorating properties, while Tony Corrado wanted to help put together a better emergency plan for the county. Stoffer, who serves on Sequim’s school board, talked of wanting to represent the interest of schools of all of Clallam County. Pratt, formerly Sequim’s Mayor and currently on the city council, spoke of her concerns of the current state of the Community Development Director position, a sentiment that was echoed by several other candidates a more informal question and answer session after the statements. Washington State law allows its counties to adopt an individual constitution that allows them to alter their form of government, or to create additional requirements for their government beyond what the State constitution has in place. One of seven charter counties in the state, Clallam County adopted its charter in 1976, amending the charter five times since then. In the last review session in 2015, the charter review commission elected to move to have reviews performed in five-year cycles instead of the more traditional 10-year cycle. Friday-Sunday will see rates increase 20 percent for all parties with $48 per hour for city residents and $58 for non residents. Nonprofits will pay city resident rates on weekends. A $70 minimum cleaning fee is still enacted for any rental. A refundable damage deposit is also required for $150 or $500 with alcohol served for the hall, or $300 for the kitchen. Sarah VanAusdle, public works management analyst, said that the changes follow city councilors’ requests for opening smaller blocks of time for rentals, continuing free use for nonprofits and streamlining janitorial service. She said the Events Center was rented for 881 hours of its available 5,475 hours in 2018, which equates to 16 percent of availability.

From page A-1 Under the county’s plan, the roundabout would cost $1 million, which Tyler said is a high estimate. “We’ve never built one before, so we’re throwing high numbers at it,” he said. “I think we can do it for less, and we’ll have some better numbers by the fall. A roundabout is a reasonable solution for safety there.” Commissioner Mark Ozias said they put the roundabout in following community input to improve safety at the intersection. Recent talk of the roundabout and other Sequim/ Dungeness projects in unincorporated Clallam County following a June 17 listening session. Ozias said they were measuring community interest in the roundabout and other projects including safety improvements on Medsker Road and Evans Road.
Medsker Road Tyler said he’s fielded concerns about widening Medsker Road since he’s worked for the county. “It’s just not reasonable to widen it,” he said. “The usage is pretty local.” However, community complaints often come about large trucks trying to navigate it and there’s no centerline on the road, county staff said. Ozias said there is a lot of interest in improving strip-
“They were shocked to learn that it would cost $4 million (but) that’s the reality. It’s why Clallam County doesn’t have stop lights.” Ross Tyler Clallam County engineer
ing and restricting the size of trucks and trucks with trailers. “From the roads’ perspective, we can put some signage on it north and south asking truck drivers not to turn,” Tyler said. “They can go to someplace like Taylor Boulevard because (Medsker) is not someplace you want to take your (semi-truck).” Medsker Road hasn’t been striped for many years because of the size of county equipment, but Tyler said he’s been in touch with the City of Sequim about possibly partnering to paint fog and road stripes. “It’s something we’ll do this construction season to put some kind of stripes on it,” he said.
Consensus among those at the listening session, Tyler said was to leave the intersection alone because people enjoy the road. Ozias said he heard Reandeau’s concerns that Evans Road isn’t up to the county’s standards, it’s a dangerous intersection, and he sustains a lot crop and equipment damage and sees a lot of trash. He said county staff’s goal
with its Comprehensive Plan is to support local agriculture and support working farms. “Should a formal request come forward, we have a lot to consider,” Ozias said. Tyler said the county holds several public meetings before commissioners adopt the final Transportation Improvement Program in the fall. He said another public meeting will be held in the Sequim area this fall. Reandeau could not be reached for comment. For more information about the Clallam County Roads Department, call 360417-2379. Reach Matthew Nash at Clallam County staff say a roundabout at Woodcock Road and firstname.lastname@example.org. Sequim-Dungeness Way is slated for construction tentatively in 2021.

Evans Road While nothing final is being proposed by county staff at this time, Tyler said, one farmer seeks a possible solution on Evans Road to cut down on traffic wrecks and litter and damage to his farm. Tyler said Bob Reandeau looks to close public access from Sequim-Dungeness Way along Evans Road to just past his farm near Davis Sand and Gravel. 972342377

Explore transport, culture in ‘Wheels’ program SEQUIM GAZETTE STAFF Transportation across the state throughout the years — from canoe journeys to flying cars to Boeing’s latest planes — are in the spotlight for Harriet Baskas’ “Washington on Wheels: Odd and Innovative Transportation Ideas from the Pacific Northwest” presentation, set for 6 p.m. Friday, July 12, at the Sequim Library, 630 N. Sequim Ave. Baskas, and author and broadcaster, takes audiences on a tour of notable BASKAS highlight s of state transportation history in this Humanities Washington Speakers Bureau event — examining not just how we get around but why we travel and where we might be going next. The audience will be invited to share family stories of migration, memories of first flights and unforgettable car trips, and consider a future of autonomous cars and vacations in space. The event is free. A Seattle resident, Baskas has a master’s degree in communications from the University of Washington and has served as the general manager for three Pacific Northwest radio stations and has created award-winning radio for National Public Radio (NPR). Her books include “Hidden Treasures: What Museums Can’t or Won’t Show You.” She writes about airports, air travel and museums for outlets that include NBC News, CNBC and USA Today. Speakers Bureau talks are free public presentations on history, politics, music, philosophy and everything in between.

OTA casts, rehearses ‘Immigrant Letters’ Production coming to stage in July SEQUIM GAZETTE STAFF Apropos with an expected influx of out-of-towners, Olympic Theatre Arts’ production of “The Immigrant Garden ~ Letters” — set to coincide with Sequim’s Lavender Weekend in July — is cast and in rehearsal. Cast in the two leading roles are veteran actress Sharon DelaBarre as Louise Beauchamp, an elderly and somewhat eccentric English gardener, and newcomer Kait Saffold as Cecily Barnes, a young and dreamy Washingtonian gardener. Set in 1910, Caroline Wood”s play sees Barnes passionate about having a flower garden. She finds a catalogue from “Mrs. Beauchamp’s Mystical Flower Seed and Herb Emporium” and sends off to England for seeds. The contact blooms into an
exchange of letters between young Cecily and Beauchamp that grows into a friendship transcending time and oceans. “I love Louise; she starts off saying basically that she’s older so she’ll just do what she wants to,” DelaBarre says. “She embeds character into her flowers, the butterflies in her garden, the toads in the grass, whatever. She’s even given the brook in her garden a personality.” Saffold says, “Every time we rehearse I feel like it’s a really special project. There’s just a lot of good gems and lessons in there. Even though it’s a period play I feel like it’s really timeless.” Also cast is Della LaCour, who was born in the same city of Yorkshire, England, from which the character of Louise writes her letters. LaCour
plays Helen Curtis, a friend of Louise. “I have not been on the stage since I was a child,” LaCour says, “but, wow, something told me I needed to go do this. The underlying messages with flowers and life and roots and things — it’s really touching.” Director Cathy Marshal says the play touches her heart. “It conveys a heightened sense of relationships, especially inter-generational,” Marshal says. “You’ve got a young woman of seventeen and an older woman who is in her seventies communicating across continents. It’s a lovely idea just being able to be friends and get to know one another even with that kind of distance in 1910. The play is lighthearted in a lot of places, but it’s also real sweet and tender throughout.” Additionally, Joe Schulz plays Washington arborist John Burrows.
“There are some real basic human lessons in this show,” DelaBarre says. “It’s about flowers and gardens on the surface, but the play is really about human growth and blossoming, and growing into your potential.”
Play details “The Immigrant Garden ~ Letters” runs from July 12-21 . Performance times are Friday and Saturday at 7:30 p.m. and Sunday at 2 p.m. Pay-What-You-Will night is 7:30 p.m. Thursday, July 18. Tickets are $15 for the general public, $13 for OTA members and $10 for students with school identification card. Get tickets at the theatre box office (1-5 p.m., Monday through Friday) or online at www. OlympicTheatreArts.org. For more information, call the theatre at 360-683-7326.
Sequim’s Beta Nu helps fund summer strings camp SEQUIM GAZETTE STAFF The Port Angeles Symphony’s Summer Strings Camp for young musicians was recently awarded a $4,000 grant from the Beta Nu chapter of the Delta Kappa Gamma Society International. The chapter, based in Sequim, makes grants to educators and nonprofit organizations that offer local programs. This second annual camp will be held at NatureBridge at Olympic National Park’s Lake Crescent, to give students a chance to concentrate on developing their skills and on making music together, away from distrac-
tions at home. Fifteen students — twice as many as last year — will participate in the strings intensive Aug. 11-15. The camp culminates in two public concerts: one at the Lake Crescent Lodge on Aug. 15 and another at First Presbyterian Church, 139 W. Eighth St., Port Angeles, on Aug. 16. Both free performances will start at 7 p.m. Monique Mead, an internationally known music educator and performer, will again lead the Summer Strings Camp along with ensemble conductor James Ray, the departing director of orchestras at Port Angeles High School. Jesse Ahmann, a cel-
list from Port Angeles, will teach improvisation techniques and coach low strings. And t wo more alumnae of the school orchestras, Marley Cochran and Lauren Waldron, serve as mentors to the students at camp. Cochran, 19, is a violinist studying at Pacific Lutheran University in Tacoma while Waldron, 20, is a violist on a music scholarship at the College of Idaho. Waldron was the winner of the Port Angeles Symphony’s Nico Snel Young Artist Competition in 2018. For more information, call the Symphony office at 360-457-5579 or email to PASymphony@olypen.com.

Dr. Brooksby, One of my best friends came to you for an examination and treatment and was really impressed. He said that a visit to your office was different than any other professional office he had been to. What is a visit to your office like, and why are you so different? Impressed. Dear Impressed, WE DO NOT MAKE YOU WAIT. When I personally have to visit another professional, I hate more than anything to have my time wasted. I could never understand why someone would make an appointment for you at 3 and then keep you waiting until 4 or 5. I understand that occasionally things do not go as planned, but in my office, if you ever wait more than 30 minutes after your appointment time for me to see you, I will credit your account $10. I believe your time is valuable too. WE ANSWER YOUR QUESTIONS. The second thing I expect is to have them answer the questions I have about the care I will be receiving. I do not like having someone assume the position that they are superior to me in any way, and that I should simply do what they say. I also believe that there is usually more than one way to treat any given problem, and that each option has its advantages and disadvantages. I prefer to be involved in my treatment, because I accept things better when I understand why things are done the way that they are. WE LISTEN. In my office we take the time to listen to what you have to say. You live with you all day long. Your experiences and how you react to things are critical in finding the best solution to any problem. I find that if I carefully listen to a patient, I can often diagnose the problem before I actually do the examination. Once we have collected all of the information available, we can then sit down with you, confirm the diagnosis and then explore the available options. WE GIVE CHOICES. I had a patient this morning come in for an examination. They were convinced that there were only two options for treatment because they had already seen someone else for the problem. When we reviewed their options, they discovered that there were actually seven different options available. We discussed each option in detail and gave them the advantages and disadvantages of each option. We use models, x-rays and a mirror to help each patient understand what can and can not be done.
This takes more time and usually involves a couple of appointments before most patients decide what they want to accomplish. They can review a typed copy of the notes made last visit so that they can see clearly what each option involves. Some patients choose the option that is least expensive at the time. Many choose the option that provides them the longest lasting resolution to their problem. Some decide on a course that involves an early solution that can form the basis for a gradual progression to a longer lasting solution. Because the treatment options we provide can be life enhancing, sometimes they take a considerable amount of time to accomplish. Sometimes treating more slowly and methodically may substantially increase the longevity of the solution. It is essential that we work together to solve these problems. Often all that is needed is a little filling and all is good. But sometimes a whole lot more is required. It is my goal to treat each person as I would like to be treated myself. Most of my patients become my friends. Things do not always go perfectly and when there is an unexpected outcome, most of my patients understand why we are proceeding the way we are. They realize that we are doing all we can to achieve the outcomes they desire. A LITTLE MORE EXPENSIVE, BUT WORTH IT. Many patients ask how come they never have to wait for long in my waiting room. They ask why I take so much time with them to make sure they understand. The answer is simple. That is the way I would want to be treated. Since I control my schedule, I manage my schedule so that each person gets the time they deserve. I am a little bit more expensive and I expect patients to respect my time also. That way everyone stays happy, and my patients tell their friends, like yours did, about their visit to our office.
If you would like to meet Dr. Brooksby or if you have any kind of dental concern and would like a fresh look at what choices are available to you, call and schedule an examination and let’s see what we can do to help you.

From page B-1 of country of origin, skin color or life experiences? Do they tend to be set in one time period or location? Do you read only fiction or only nonfiction? If you are ready to range more broadly, there are plenty of ways to challenge yourself with wider reading experiences. Here are some tips for getting started. Read a book … • by an author under 30 • by a female (or male) author • by an immigrant author • with a biracial main character • with a Native main character • set on each continent • set in another U.S. state • published this year • published the decade you were born • translated from another language
Suggested reads Try Michelle “Adelman’s Piece of Mind,” about an adult character living with a traumatic brain injury suddenly having to adjust to life without her protective parent. In Sarah Waters’ “The Paying Guests,” a woman and her mother living in genteel poverty after WWI take in boarders to get by; an accidental murder complicates the attraction the woman has for a married female guest. Anouk Markovits’ “I Am Forbidden” begins by following two sisters
living in the insular, ultraorthodox Hasidic Jewish community of Brooklyn after WWII, following the family through the years to 2005 Manhattan. A myst er y s et in 1920s B o m b a y, Sujata M a s se y ’s “The Widows of Malabar Hill” focuses on Parveen Mistry, a female lawyer relegated to little more than paperwork until a group of Muslim widows, living in seclusion and unable to talk to men, give her the opportunity to meet with clients. A thoughtful fiction set in Antarctica is Ashley Shelby’s “South Pole Station.”

Fertilizers 101: The basics Do not use manure as the only source of nitrogen in a garden because manures are usually high in phosphorus relative to nitrogen.
Because of a production error, the June 26 “Get It Growing Column” was only partially printed. Here is the article in full. — MD Plants need many different nutrients to grow normally. They get some of these nutrients from the air and water; most they get from the soil. Three nutrients that Get It plants Growing from the get soil by Judy English – nitrogen, and Jeanette phosphorus Stehr-Green and potassium – are needed in relatively large quantities. As a result, these nutrients, often called the primary nutrients, are at the heart of most plant fertilizers.
potassium.) The three numbers together are called the nitrogen-phosphorus-potassium (or N-P-K) ratio. For example, if the numbers on a bag of fertilizer are 5-1010, then by weight, 5 percent is nitrogen, 10 percent is phosphorus and 10 percent is potassium. But what is the remaining 75 percent of the bag by weight? It is “inert ingredients” which make the fertilizer easier to distribute. “Inert ingredients” vary by manufacturer, and are usually sand or other materials that have no nutritional value for plants.
Fertilizers, by the numbers
Chemical vs. organic
Every commercial fertilizer is labelled with three numbers that indicate the percentage of total fertilizer weight represented by the three primary nutrients. (See photo.) The percentage of nitrogen (N) by weight is always the first number, followed by phosphorus (P) and then potassium (K). (The K is for kalium, the Latin word for
What is the difference between “chemical” fertilizers (sometimes called “processed”) and “organic” fertilizers? Chemical fertilizers are manufactured or extracted from natural materials that often undergo extensive processing. The nitrogen in chemical fertilizers is derived from petroleum and natural gas. The phosphorus is
derived from rock and undergoes treatment with sulfuric acid. Most potassium is mined from underground deposits of soluble minerals. Organic fertilizers are natural materials that undergo little to no processing. Organic sources of nitrogen include animal manures, blood meal, fish meal and alfalfa meal. Phosphorus can be found in bone meal and rock phosphate while potassium can be found in greensand and kelp meal. Organic producers may use a combination of these materials to give a balanced fertilizer product. Chemical fertilizers are highly concentrated. When applied to plants, they give the plant a big shot of pure nutrient; they do not provide organic matter. Conversely, organic fertilizers break down slowly, giving plants a smaller dose of nutrients over a longer period of time. They also “feed” the soil because they contain a lot of organic matter which is broken down by beneficial soil organ-

late in the growing season when plants cannot use it efficiently and winter rains will just leach it from the soil. Because chemical fertilizers do not contain organic matter, using chemical fertilizers as the only source of plant nutrients can be detrimental to the health of the soil and the beneficial organisms that live in the soil. When using chemical fertilizers, also apply compost to “feed” the soil organisms. Do not use manure as the only source of nitrogen in a garden because manures are usually high in phosphorus relative to nitrogen. Application of sufficient manure to meet your garden’s nitrogen needs can result in excess phosphorus in the soil. Excess phosphorus can harm your plants and move into surface water, harming water quality and aquatic organisms. Understanding fertilizers will help you use them wisely.

S.T.E.A.M. takes over Boys & Girls Club BY CONOR DOWLEY Sequim Gazette
It’s going to be a busy summer at the Boys and Girls Club in Sequim. From kindergartners to high schoolers, youths who attend the club this summer will be kept busy with the “Full S.T.E.A.M. Ahead” program. In addition to STEM topics of science, technology, engineering and mathematics, unit director Dave Miller and his staff are adding the arts to the mix. “Last (summer) we focused on reading and literacy,” Miller said. “This year we wanted to bring in the (S.T.E.A.M.) aspect. “Plus, it gives us more of a variety of activities to do that are locally based.” Each week features a different general theme, with daily activities exploring all S.T.E.A.M. aspects of that theme. Much of the program will happen in the club’s morning camp that runs from 8 a.m.-noon each weekday, and includes breakfast for
every child in the building. That morning camp comes with an additional cost on top of the $30 per year membership to help the club manage the extra hours — morning camp participation costs $15 per day, or $65 per week. Afternoons at the club — which runs various activities from noon-6 p.m. and include the service of both lunch and a snack — are part of the annual membership fee. Club members also have the opportunity to go on field trips to various locations and activities across the region. “We live in such a wonderful area with so many different ecosystems,” Miller said. “Our goal is to give our kids a hands on experience that involves the environment around them.” Club members will have plenty of time for regular fun and games outside of S.T.E.A.M. activities as well, including plenty of outdoor time such as the recent field day the Hunter Carlson, right, plays ladder ball while his brother Jacob, left, and several other Boys & Girls Club memclub put together helping celebrate bers watch on at the club’s recent field day to celebrate the end of the 2018-19 school year.

Schools out, we’re in — Week 1 Boys & Girls Clubs of the Olympic Peninsula Editor’s note: The following is the first of a summerlong series detailing activities at the Sequim Boys & Girls Club. Call 360-683-8095 or see www.bgc-op.org for more information. — MD Summer is off to a good start and last week was our first full week of all day programming. Doors open with our morning camp, where participants pay a modest $15 a day, or $65, a week for an action-packed morning before free lunch and when the club opens to all members at noon for no charge. The Carroll C. Kendall Club didn’t skip a beat as the youths transitioned from school year to summer. The last day of school was buzzing with happiness as the club filled with kids celebrating the last day of school. We said goodbye to members we know will spend their summer at home, with family, in other towns or with parents that also enjoy the summers off. For many others, we will continue to see their smiling faces and together we’ll share in the summer experiences, making 2019 memorable. The clubhouse doors unlocked at 7:45 a.m. on June 20 and we welcomed 100 members before noon. This year, our summer camp program takes on the theme “Full S.T.E.A.M. Ahead.” Our morning campers will enjoy a week of activities, games, crafts and field trips. Our afternoon programs will provide academic en-

richment though several evidence based programs “Brain Gain,” “Stride Academy” and some locally-developed and volunteer-run programs like “Science Club” and “Robotics Club.” We will bury our heads in books, hit the computer keyboards, jump into physical games, create incredible art and learn so much this summer.
Morning Camp “Full S.T.E.A.M. Ahead” with our summer of science, technology, engineering, arts and math. Members will
spend a week diving deeper into the sea-life, atmosphere and weather. They will take a look at motors and transportation one week, math and numbers another week as well as exploring the work of Picasso’s and other artists. A week will be spent on both the art of music, and bridge engineering. Last week our morning campers participated in the first full week of summer camp, “Mysteries of the Deep.” Campers made jellyfish art and Lego masterpieces, baked cookies to look like sand dollars and had crab races in the gym. The kids dropped to their hands and feet, belly up and crawled to the finish line hoping to be faster than their peers.
Feeding the Future We had a successful launch to our Summer Lunch Program and have just completed our first week serving USDA-approved meals to all children under age 18.
In Sequim we serve lunch from noon-1 p.m., not only at the Boys & Girls Club but at Elk Creek Apartments, SeaBreeze Apartments and Carrie Blake Community Park. Starting July 8 we will add Sequim High School and feed summer school students and the public until July 26. The program’s success is attributed to the community service model coordinated by program leaders. If it weren’t for community involvement a program of this size, feeding free lunches to Sequim (and Port Angeles) children would not be obtainable. Again this year, the faith communities and civic organizations help us keep costs and a nutritious meal available for those in need. Children are enjoying the lunches served, and continue to come out for tasty meals in their lunch bags. If you can help us during the weeks of July 8 or July 15, call the Sequim club at 360-683-8095, as we are still Sequim Boys & Girls Club youths build a tower. seeking volunteer help.

(360) 460-6258 www.petfinder.com email@example.com Sponsored by caring pet lovers. MR. COOPER is a 12-year-old Labrador Retriever/Boxer mix. He came to WAG because his elderly human can no longer care for him. He is sweet, loving, gets along with other dogs and enjoys short walks. Mr. Cooper is having a difficult time with the transition and would do best in a quiet and calm home environment where he is honored and attended to. His health is good though he does have some lumps and bumps from age. He is on an arthritis supplement. ANDY is a striking and sweet 2-year-old Whippet with some Border Collie. He is very athletic and built for agility and other competitive canine sports. Andy completed our Dog Training Program and is wonderful on leash, knows some basic obedience and is very social. He is still very much a kid and needs someone to continue to build his confidence. Andy would love a canine companion, most likely preferring a female. He does have anxiety being left alone in a room or house, so he would need access to a yard.
