“EDASC has enhanced its commitment to local companies and has been able to focus more time and energy on attracting companies from business sectors that complement our existing business community.”

Letter from the President

nce again, the Economic Development Association of Skagit County has lived up to its Mission Statement. We have worked hard to enhance the quality of life in Skagit County through the creation and preservation of healthy businesses and good jobs. During these tough economic times businesses have survived by becoming leaner and tougher. They have had to make difficult choices and adapt in order to “weather the storm.” Once the economy starts to rebound, these companies will emerge much stronger and will better be able to thrive in the years ahead. It is important to point out that your EDASC Board is not only committed to provide opportunities to new businesses wanting to locate here, but EDASC also brings value to our existing members through the numerous programs that are provided to assist them throughout the year. EDASC has enhanced its commitment to local companies and has been able to focus more time and energy on attracting companies from business sectors that complement our existing business community. Our membership has continued to be stable this past year, and EDASC remains financially strong despite the financial cutbacks to our budget from both the State and Federal levels. This is due, in no small part, to stringent business decisions by the EDASC staff and Board, and also to your continued support of the networking events and educational opportunities that are so generously sponsored by you, our EDASC members and associates. I want to personally thank the EDASC staff for their unwavering dedication. Throughout the year, they have endured a number of medical issues and personnel changes, all with a seamless transition. For that, the EDASC Board and I are truly grateful. It has been an honor and my pleasure to serve as your EDASC president this past year. I ask for your continued support of EDASC and the great work it does for the people of Skagit County.

Letter from the EXECUTIVE DIRECTOR

A

s we turn the page on 2010, current signs and predictions point to a continued economic recovery that should produce greater business success in 2011 at a faster pace than 2010. While 2010 saw muted economic growth, the economy was heading in the right direction. A number of Skagit County businesses reported positive growth- some of them are highlighted in these pages. Prognosticators point to several signals that call for an improved economic climate: federal economic policies that were put into play should continue to have a positive influence; the extended tax cuts will provide additional fuel; the current state of the US dollar will enhance exports, particularly important to our export-rich state; an improved business confidence in an economic recovery; a rise in employment trends; an increase in car and truck sales; an upswing in general retails sales; increased factory output; an uptick in the housing market; a continued upward trend in the stock market; and an economy in the Pacific Northwest that is stronger and more stable than much of the nation. An informal survey of Skagit County businesses finds increased optimism and a more positive mood about the economy compared to a year ago. What all of this means is increased optimism and an improved economy with further success in 2011. But, regardless of where the economy may take us this year, know that our promise is to assist, support and encourage your success in 2011.

Don Wick Executive Director

The Economic Development Association of Skagit County offers assistance to businesses through our Small Business Development Center (SBDC) and our Business Retention & Expansion (BRE) programs. Working to ensure the survival and growth of existing Skagit County businesses is a vital part of EDASC’s mission for economic development. EDASC’s business assistance programs are supported by the Small Business Administration through WSU’s SBDC Network, the Washington Department of Commerce, Skagit County, the Ports of Anacortes & Skagit, local city governments, Skagit County’s Public Facilities Fund and EDASC members.

In 2010, EDASC provided technical assistance to more than 200 clients looking to start or purchase a business, expand their business, or improve the performance of their business. These programs assisted business owners secure financing ranging from $5,000 up to more than $1 million. The businesses assisted accounted for more than 700 existing and potential jobs in the community.

Seminars & Workgroups

In partnership with Skagit Valley College, EDASC offers a wide selection of education seminars. Every month EDASC hosts a free class aimed at small business entrepreneurs and explores what it takes to start and finance a new business. The class has been extremely well attended as the demand has increased for start-up assistance. Additionally, EDASC has hosted a number of other sessions on a variety of business topics. The response to the workshops has been very positive both in the terms of satisfaction surveys and in the continuously growing number of attendees. In 2010, more than 800 participants attended EDASC seminars and workshops.

Entrepreneur Program

In partnership with the Washington Employment Security Department EDASC provides start-up and expansion assistance to those individuals drawing unemployment benefits. The Program consists of an individually designed effort to help entrepreneurs at an affordable cost, and brings together the very best of EDASC’s resources including: one-on-one business counseling, technical assistance, educational sessions and workgroups to build business management knowledge.

 EDASC Member Services Guide / 2011

LATINO BUSINESS RETENTION AND EXPANSION PROGRAM (LBRE PROGRAM) “EL PROGRAMA PARA LA RETENCIóN Y EXPANSIóN DEL COMERCIO LATINO”

In partnership with Skagit Valley College, EDASC’s Latino Business Retention and Expansion Program is also supported by funding from the Small Business Development Center and a sponsorship from Bank of America. Since the program was established in 2004, it has assisted Latino business owners in securing over $2 million in loans. The LBRE Mission is to provide one-on-one business counseling and broad-based support for Latino entrepreneurs and business owners for start-ups and business expansion. We do this by providing access to capital, business education aimed at financial literacy, and support with strategic planning, marketing, resource awareness and networking.

EDASC FOUNDATION

The EDASC Foundation was established by EDASC to develop, implement and fund innovative research and education programs in cooperation with the institutions of higher education, private business and other interested parties. Currently the EDASC Foundation is the governing entity for Leadership Skagit- a partnership with Skagit Valley College and Washington State University and provides leadership to build a coalition on the issue of early learning in the community to strengthen our future workforce.

Leadership Skagit

Leadership Skagit, founded by the Economic Development Association of Skagit County, Skagit Valley College and Washington State University, is operated under the governance of the EDASC Foundation. The program’s mission is to strengthen and transform our communities by developing a network of business and community leadership that is informed, inclusive and connected through shared learning experiences. Leadership Skagit’s intensive 9-month curriculum combines leadership skill development with in-depth information, study and discussion on topics critical to the future of our region. In addition, participants work as a part of a small team to plan, organize and complete a service project that will provide a lasting benefit to our community.  Leadership Skagit alumni continue their leadership journey by working on alumni community projects and serving on non-profit boards, planning commissions and task forces. Skagit County is a major sponsor of Leadership Skagit. The County joins business, corporate and individual sponsors in providing annual support for this vital program. Recognized by the 2004 Governor’s Leadership Award and the WSU Hall of Champions Award, the program brings together emerging and existing leaders from business, government and the non-profit world.  It has proudly graduated over 200 participants since its inception.

INFRASTRUCTURE INVESTMENT Through the American Recovery and Investment Act (Stimulus Dollars), the Washington State Department of Commerce approved Skagit County’s request for up to $9.3 million from the state’s bond cap authority for a new solid waste transfer facility and operation.


2 0 1 0 a n n ual r e p o r t Anacortes will build a new water treatment facility and closed a bond issue that netted $40 million in proceeds as the Build America Bonds received a 35% subsidy from the federal government. The $56 million project will create an estimated 1,000 jobs during the 2 ½ year construction phase, which will begin in 2011. The city of Burlington sought commitment from the Transportation Improvement Bond for two projects in 2010:  $606,900 for improvements to Section Street and $84,531 for Anacortes Street sidewalks.  Also, the Department of Ecology provided $104,563 for stormwater improvements. Design and an Environmental Impact Study are underway on a planned boardwalk that will run along the La Conner Channel Waterfront from the Port of Skagit Marina to Pioneer Park. The $4 million 5 phase project will be ushered in beginning as soon as 2011. The first phase in the Mount Vernon Flood Protection Project and Riverfront Trail was completed in late 2010. The $25 million project is set to create over 600 jobs in the first 5 years and over 1300 jobs within 15 years. Sedro-Woolley purchased a ladder truck that now allows for increased building height in Sedro-Woolley. It now allows for larger and more productive redevelopment. The truck was an investment of $800,000. Together with a new fire truck the investment totals $1.25 million. In 2010 the city rezoned Highway 20 from Metcalf to Township Streets to mixed commercial and in 2011 will build the infrastructure to serve it. In the last 4 years, Sedro-Woolley has seen the investment of $20 million in infrastructure for economic development.

PORT INVESTMENTS

The Northwest Career & Technical Academy’s “Marine Skills Center” opened its doors on Port of Anacortes property in the fall of 2010. It provides technical training for students pursuing a career in the Marine Trade. The legendary Anthony’s restaurant completed construction on a new 6,000 square foot restaurant on Port property at the Cap Sante Boat Haven, opening in early 2011. Other projects include improving the safety and security of the Wymans ramp facility, Puget Sound Rope Expansion, the “O” Avenue Beach Remediation and the contaminated soil and debris removal at the Scott site shoreline excavation. The Port of Skagit secured a $3 million grant from the FAA and a $55,000 grant from the State Department of Transportation to update runway drainage and received a $950,000 grant from the State for taxiway cleanup. This past year also saw a renovation to a restaurant building and a lease to the Kitty Hawk Café, a brand new restaurant at the airport.  Also the Port completed the FedEx move to a renovated facility at the airport and the Port moved the growing company, Impressions Worldwide into the newest building at the business park.  They also began work on an economic opportunity plan.

REFINERY INVESTMENTS

The Shell Puget Sound Refinery is doing their part to lower peoples’ exposure at the gas pump. 2010 saw the culmination of the refinery’s Benzene Reduction Project, a three part mega-project that included over $100 million in capital investment, utilized nearly 350 local contractors and brought in materials from both global and local suppliers.

EDUCATION NORTHWEST CAREER AND TECHNICAL ACADEMY

The Northwest Career & Technical Academy Quall Center opened its doors in September 2010 to students from six Skagit County consortium member school districts and Skagit Valley College. The Academy delivers innovative educational opportunities to high school juniors and seniors in the Northwest. The Academy offers hands-on professional training taught by industry professionals in the program areas of: Academy of Finance, Culinary Arts, Dental Technology, DigiPen Computer Science, DigiPen Sustainable Technology Design, Veterinary Technology, and Medical Technology. In addition to the Mount Vernon campus, the Academy also features a Marine Technology Center satellite campus located on Port of Anacortes property. This program is a first of its kind, featuring collaboration with Skagit Valley College focusing on cutting edge training in Marine Technology in the areas of: Composites, Propulsion, and Systems.

SKAGIT VALLEY COLLEGE

Skagit Valley College once again earned national recognition as one of the best community colleges in the nation as Washington Monthly named Skagit Valley College #19 among America’s Best Community Colleges. SVC becomes the only community college in Washington State to receive that honor in both 2007 and 2010. Laura Angst Hall, the $28 million, 65,000 square foot new Sciences & Health Occupation building achieved the highest energy certification by the U.S. Government Building Council – the first education building in Washington State to achieve Leadership Energy and Environmental Design, LEED Platinum Certification.

HEALTHCARE Skagit County’s three hospitals are collaborating to develop a regional Health Information Exchange. Island, Skagit Valley & United General Hospitals have formed the Medical Information Network – North Sound (MIN-NS) to connect the three hospitals to provide electronic patient records, which improves quality safety and efficiency of patient care. Ultimately the goal is to connect the approximately 300 providers at 70 sites and the hospitals’ medical staffs to the network. Island Hospital is building a $10.3 million, 25,000 square foot two level building to house their growing Cancer Care Center, Physical Therapy Department, new Wound Care Program and added services. The facility is set to be completed in 2011. They anticipate a $400,000 investment to start a Mental Health Program, including the recruitment of a psychiatrist. Skagit Valley Hospital acquired Skagit Valley Medical Center to form an integrated health care delivery system now known as Skagit Regional Clinics with 100 physicians and health professionals. Total employment is now at 1,700, making the hospital the county’s largest employer. Skagit Valley Hospital became a teaching hospital in 2010 in affiliation with Pacific Northwest University of Health Services in Yakima. A dozen third year medical students started rotations in 2010. They will be joined by another 10 to 12 students in 2011. In the past 3 years, Skagit Valley Hospital has assisted in successfully securing nearly 90 new providers to the area. United General Hospital is updating their strategic plan with a new focus for the next three years. As of 2011, they brought the diagnostic laboratory services in-house, creating several positions.

calls. “I knew it was a shoe-in to start New World, contract firmly in the back pocket.” The Economic Development Association of Skagit County (EDASC) worked extensively with the company during their start-up and early development phase. McDonald says, “EDASC has been an incredible resource for us, providing vital assistance from business planning to hiring issues to tax information. Because of EDASC we received nearly $100,000 in tax incentives that helped us get people back in the workforce. EDASC’s support has been instrumental to our success.”

Putting people back to work

“Walking through the plant, it’s always good to see the smiles on the workers’ faces,” Andy McDonald states. “We’ve put a lot of people back to work and they’re happy to be here. Seeing the smiles and feeling the vibes — there’s a lot of positive attitude there.”

McDonald’s workforce quickly rose to 15 a year ago, and since has more than tripled. “We have 50 of the best employees — a team of like-minded individuals,” he explains. “It’s a younger workforce with a lot of new ideas.” A total of 48 were rehired from the Northern Marine rolls and two are subcontractors, “who are effectively full-time workers,” he adds. The company expects to employ more next year. Bud LeMieux, who grew Northern Marine from infancy into a highly respectable international motor-yacht manufacturer, is still involved in the company, McDonald points out. Indeed, New World has been doing business as “Northern Marine” since the former owner reacquired all the assets last summer. What stands out today is McDonald’s adherence to lean methodology and versatility, much of which he picked up working on the East Coast with Freedom and Legacy Yachts, a Rhode Island-based boatmaker. “I spent a lot of time studying lean manufacturing when I worked on the East Coast. We did a full, lean implementation, and while I was there, we

expanded production with a new boat completed every five weeks,” McDonald states. “We’re willing to diversify and not afraid to change or adapt.” New World uses a green philosophy of reusing most of its building materials through careful planning and a 5-axis CNC unit, with nearly all of the manufacturing handled right in the 46,000-square-foot former Northern Marine plant at 310-34th St., across from Bunnies By The Bay.

Diversified custom builder “We’re a full custom operation,” he says of New World. “We’ll build anything, from small boats to big boats and everything in between.” Currently, New World is constructing sleek expeditionary or trawlerstyle yachts of 64 to 118 feet — in fact, there are a 64-, 95- and two 80-footers on the manufacturing floor — all custom, full-displacement boats. “We’re very active with a number of (potential) customers looking at 86-, 95-, 103- and 115-footers and another at 156 feet,” says McDonald. “I talk to these clients at least once every day.” While all present negotiations are with U.S. customers — none of whom was disclosed by name or ability to pay — New World Yachts née Northern Marine is now targeting global clients from Asia, Canada and Europe. The marine industry is full of skilled labor and a downturn as we’ve experienced it can put a lot of these highly specialized individuals out of work. That was McDonald’s incentive to start New World. “Walking through the plant, it’s always good to see the smiles on the workers’ faces,” Andy McDonald states. “We’ve put a lot of people back to work and they’re happy to be here. Seeing the smiles and feeling the vibes — there’s a lot of positive attitude there.”

2010: A Year of Successes, Turnarounds and Start-ups Jobs and Economic Growth While 2010 presented restrained economic growth, there were numerous success stories in Skagit County. These successes included both large and small companies and both new and existing businesses. New companies highlighted in this section include: New World Yachts, Stellar Wood Products, Standard Biodiesel, Triton America, Anthony’s and Taquería El Milagro. Existing companies featured are: BMW/Oracle, Janicki Industries, Bayview Composites, BBC Biochemical, Pleasant Valley Farms and Impressions Worldwide. These companies all provided increased employment in our community and increased capital investment. By MICHAEL BARRETT

T

he prosperity of a sound economy has eluded us in recent years, but most of Skagit’s businesses have risen to the challenge and can now see a way back to normality. A few companies may have closed their doors; but for the most part, the county’s manufacturing sector has come through these tough times with plenty of gusto and aplomb. It’s that kind of pluck and vigor that we celebrate. New companies have accepted the risks of a down economy and come on line anyway, while others have taken a “wait and see” attitude but are not far behind in making the big decision. Old businesses scaled down to weather the storm but have begun again recalling their laid-off highly skilled workers, of which the county abounds. Still others have ignored “boom and bust” altogether to do their own thing, and with stunning success. And speaking of success: Nowhere has there been a better example than witnessing the Anacortes-built BOR90 trimaran whip the upstart Swiss yachtracing team last year to win back the 150-year-old America’s Cup. Perhaps that story is a good place to start. . . .

America’s Cup for Anacortes BMW Oracle Racing last year successfully brought home the elusive America’s Cup, the most prestigious

prize in yacht racing. While many on the team are New Zealanders and “home” is the Golden Gate Yacht Club in San Francisco, Anacortes and Sedro-Woolley played major parts in this global phenomenon. Thanks to Janicki Industries along with site location assistance from EDASC, BMW Oracle Racing (aka BOR) chose Anacortes as its base to build its sleek trimaran racing yacht whose footprint takes up the area of a major-league baseball infield on water. Using its 5-axis mills and nearly twenty thousand hours of labor Janicki tooled the molds for the hulls, various appendages, spars and the now famous wing, all of which required the utmost precision. The BOR90 renamed USA-17 took on Alinghi of Switzerland, which won the famous cup in 2003 and successfully defended it in 2007, in a special “Dead of Gift” challenge. On February 14, 2010 USA-17 eliminated the Swiss, winning the first two races of the regatta held off Valencia, Spain.  The defender, now named Oracle Racing, has chosen San Francisco as the host city for the next America’s Cup regatta to be held in Summer 2013.  Racing will be held in San Francisco Bay featuring an exciting new class of 72-foot wing-sailed catamarans currently under development. Alinghi has reported they will not participate. Meanwhile, Anacortes, proud to be a part of the winning team, remains the

birthplace of USA-17, winner of the 33rd America’s Cup.

Janicki Industries All Systems Are Go

One of the county’s most prominent and successful manufacturers, Janicki Industries, has weathered the economic downturn and is anticipating robust growth. According to CFO Lisa Janicki, “2010 started dismally, but by the fourth quarter our growth was so dramatic that we had our largest revenue year ever.” Janicki, internationally renowned producer of large-scale, high-precision composite prototypes, parts and tooling, started in Sedro-Woolley in the early’90s and has grown to become one of the county’s largest private employers. According to Lisa Janicki, the strategy for success has been to use down markets to increase company capacity and refine processes in targeted areas, positioning the company for growth when markets return. Two years ago, Janicki opened a state-of-the-art composites manufacturing plant in the town of Hamilton. The facility includes twin proprietary 5-axis computerized mills that are among the largest and most precise in the world. During 2010, the company moved again to increase capacity, launching construction on a new facility in Layton, Utah which will open in 2011.  (Continued on page 13)


JI currently employs 450 people, and has hired more than 125 people over the past 10 months. It is in the process of hiring back many of its skilled talent pool, Lisa Janicki explains. “The Hamilton plant is packed with work, and we are hiring in Utah,” she adds. Among Janicki’s projects are hightech carbon-fiber aerospace tools, prototype wind energy blades and a variety of experimental parts for space research. Janicki’s well-known customers include Boeing’s 787 Dreamliner division, and BMW Oracle Racing, which won the America’s Cup yacht race last year.

Here’s a Stellar Company

Speaking of niches, Stellar Wood Products of Burlington has made a name for itself in the scaffold-manufacturing field by making precision planks from wood products. “Our company, under a private label, has produced scaffold planking and concrete-forming materials for about 10 years in Sumner,” says co-owner Andy Glenn. Part of the company made the move to Burlington last year to be close to its supplier. It uses a special grade of laminated veneer lumber (LVL) it purchases from Pacific Woodtech in the Burlington Industrial Park. It runs it through a “unique machine” that cuts and certifies the planks, rejecting any that do not qualify during the millimeter-by-millimeter testing it endures. The other section works on industrial wood forms for major concrete-pouring projects. These LVL forms are used in retaining walls, parking garages and other large contracts. “We custom cut them and emboss the customer’s name on each board,” Glenn states. The boards are even color coordinated according to the customers’ wishes to ensure their safe return after the concrete sets. Stellar, which maintains the operation in Sumner, employs 15 and has plans to expand and, with EDASC’s help, more jobs will be created at the Burlington plant.

French Fried Fuels

One of the more successful companies this past year has been Standard Biodiesel USA, Inc., which recycles

used vegetable oil into industrial fuel. Founder and vice president John Wick is very upbeat about the future of Skagit County. “This is news that’s absolutely fabulous: We have recycled from restaurants in Washington state more than 6 million gallons of vegetable oil into fuel,” he enthuses. “That puts us as the largest recycler (of vegetable oil) in the region that works into the fuel business. Right in Skagit County!” Started in August 2006 in Snohomish County, Standard Biodiesel relocated a portion of their operation to the old Lignotech plant on Farm-to-Market Road and now has the capacity to process and store 600,000 gallons and deliver it via its 18-car rail access. The company employs 30 persons, four of them drivers of the clean and efficient pump trucks that travel around to restaurants and vacuum the spent oil from bins the company provides. It counts as clients about 5,000 restaurants in this state, 300 or so from the North Puget Sound area. “We’re up 25 percent from 2009,” Wick continues, “in part attributable to our location in Skagit County because we’re able to process more oil and fuel more efficiently than in the past.” Having expanded to Idaho where the company has another facility, as well as Northern California and Oregon, Standard hopes eventually to go nationwide. Already it is one of the country’s first plants to operate solely on waste vegetable oil, and other companies are converting the renewable diesel to automobile fuel and many other uses as well. “We’ve been having a great year,” John Wick exclaims. “Our numbers are up; our efficiency is up. We couldn’t be happier.”

Multipurpose Tooling Company

Bayview Composites found 2010 profitable, building tooling for a number of industries including aerospace, marine and energy. A multimillion-dollar contract just completed at the end of the year involved epoxy resin tooling for 12 different kinds of blades for wind turbines. “These were big tools — quite

impressive,” states Theodore (Ted) Ginsburg, an aerospace engineer who is involved in several businesses in Skagit County under his partner of 51 years, Thomas Hsueh (pronounced “Shay”). “Actually, 2010 was a very good year for us on the composite side.” As Bayview Edison Industries, the firm produced yachts. But that market collapsed and, as Bayview Composites, the company changed direction. “About three years ago, we started looking at other possibilities and began building tooling for wind-turbine blades. We got a pretty large contract,” Ginsburg explains. “In all, we built 12 sets of tooling for different-sized blades for turbines up to 140 feet. Each tooling can produce 1,000 or more blades.”

New Planes Being Developed

Another business under Hsueh is Triton Aerospace LLC, currently developing small executive aircraft at the Port of Skagit’s Bayview Industrial Park in the old Pacific Circuits building and an adjacent property on Westar Lane. Ginsburg says the two planes — the A500, a twin-engine, centerline thrust, six-person aircraft, and the A700, twinjet for seven persons — got their start at Denver-based Adam Aircraft. That company went broke, and following a short, unproductive stint as a Russian-owned firm, sold off all its assets — equipment and tools that filled 120 40-foot containers — to Triton, which last year shipped them lock, stock and barrel to Skagit County. “Our main task is to concentrate on the A500 and reduce the weight. We’re redeveloping the airplane and hope to have a prototype in 2011,” informs Ginsburg. A number of engineers are currently working on the project at Triton’s design office in Anacortes. The A500 belongs to a niche market and will become a very marketable aircraft once the weight problem is resolved. “We’ll be hiring more people once the aerospace industry picks up. We’ll be ready,” says Ginsburg.

BBC Biochemical

BBC Biochemical had a very successful year in 2010, growing by over 26%. BBC Biochemical, a biomedical facility, expanded and relocated to (Continued on page 14)

EDASC Member Services Guide / 2011 13


South Mount Vernon from Snohomish County and began operations in a new state-of-the-art facility in mid-2007. With this move the company expanded its manufacturing operations and created a new R&D laboratory. Principally, BBC provides the health care industry with advanced biomedical reagents and technologies on a global scale. BBC President Adrian Biesecker says one reason for success this past year is diversity. The company has moved to supply products to new industries from textiles to semi-conductors. “We have been willing to diversify into any marketplace that we can make better.” And Biesecker adds, “Our people make that happen. Having the right people that can guide the ship through these waters is vital. We have people that are very good at what they do.”

Pleasant Valley Farms to Be More Profitable

Pleasant Valley Farms received a $150,000 loan from the Skagit County Council of Governments to help it expand its pickle and sauerkraut production through the purchase of a pasteurizer. “Up until now, we’ve been mostly a food service company,” states spokesperson Karla Gulke. “Adding a pasteurizer has been the key to allowing us to expand our sales, which will help us to assist growers in putting more acres into production. That’s our overall goal, not only to be profitable and sustainable agriculturally, but to help the growers.” The pasteurizer will make the company’s products “shelf stable,” Gulke adds, “and not require refrigeration,” much in the same way pickles and other products are found on the aisle shelves in grocery stores. “EDASC has been a supporter of Pleasant Valley Farms for a long time,” Gulke states, “and with their support, we have been able to obtain government-guaranteed financing and involve the community in our success.” Pleasant Valley Farms currently employs 70 people but during planting and harvests can expand up to as many as 175.

Presses Pick up Speed

Niche markets are nothing new in Skagit County, but here’s one few have thought of: Reconditioned newspaper

printing presses. Impressions Worldwide services and sells presses all over the world from its location at the Port of Skagit, where it’s been for 11 of its 16 years in existence. Despite the departure of many web-set newspapers in this country, according to Impressions impresario Tom Loesch, “The demand is quite high for presses on the international level.” Once a sale is made, Loesch’s staff of 15 goes into action to customize a press for the client, deliver it and install it. “There’s quite a demand for color just hitting countries like Indonesia, Malaysia and the Philippines,” he points out, adding that publishers in Mexico and countries in South American and Africa are also among his clients. “It used to be we were buried with work in the U.S. Obviously, the demand declined, newspapers shut down, but business overseas picked up, and in five years, our business model reversed,” he explains. Many community newspapers in America are still doing all right financially, he adds, and many have become good customers as well.

Anacortes Welcomes Anthony’s

One of the Northwest’s premier restaurant chains, Anthony’s, opened a 6,800-square-foot fine-dining establishment at Cap Sante Marina located at the Port of Anacortes in January to great reviews. This new restaurant, number 20 in the privately held chain, can accommodate 312 guests, including 32 in a private room and another 100 on two large view decks, one open and one covered and created 80 new jobs in Anacortes. “Anthony’s underscores the spirit of the Northwest that Anacortes so perfectly embodies,” says Anthony’s President and founder Budd Gould. “We’re excited to contribute to it.” “The response at the opening (Jan. 17) was so fantastic,” adds Lane Hoss, director of marketing. “People have been so wonderful. We opened the doors to a full crowd.” Bob Hyde, Port Executive Director, stated, “Anthony’s Restaurant is exactly what we were hoping for in an anchor tenant for the Boat Haven. It will bring the community and tourists by land and sea to Anacortes. We are proud of the fact

14 EDASC Member Services Guide / 2011

that Anthony’s sees Anacortes as a place they want to be. Thanks go out to Mayor Maxwell and the City of Anacortes, as well the Anacortes Chamber of Commerce for helping with this opportunity.” Anthony’s HomePort, which started in Kirkland in 1975, employs more than 2,000, of whom about 120 are veterans of 10 years or more. The chain’s core commitment is to using only fresh, Northwest seafood and local produce, as well as Northwest wines and microbrews. Hoss said EDASC had been particularly helpful in providing good research. “They were very supportive,” she adds, pointing out that they were an especially great resource in helping “guide us and answering questions about the community.”

Taquería El MilagroThe Miracle Truck

Gonzalo Huitrón calls his Taquería on wheels “El Milagro-- The Miracle.” In March of 2007, Mr. Huitrón came to EDASC to seek financing for his business.  At that time he had no established credit or collateral. He was born in a small town in Mexico called Vicente Guerrero in the State of Michoacán. He says that his earliest memory occurred at the age of four— the memory of his own cries as he called for his mother and watched her back as she disappeared down a long dusty road.  She never returned.  At the age of seven, he began working in the fields in Mexico before finally making it to the States. His prospects were poor for this loan but he did not give up. He established credit and saved the money. Then the real miracles began.   After saving $8,000 to buy the truck, it was given to him as a gift.  He was able to heal and continue business after a propane tank explosion burned his face and scarred his hands. And then two micro loans totaling $9,500 were approved by the ‘Skagit Council of Governments’ loan fund. He is now the proud owner of a successful business and is already thinking of expanding.  To top it off, Mr. Huitrón was voted the “Best Bite” in 2010 for his beef tacos, by those who attended the 2nd annual Bite of Skagit fundraiser on July 31, 2010.

Fisher & Sons Every building has a job to do in the success of a business. This fact is at the heart of Fisher & Sons’ business as a general contractor. With more than 50 years of doing business in the Pacific Northwest, Fisher’s unique design+build approach helps owners see both the necessities—and the possibilities—a building will have in performing its role as an environment for doing business. Focused on solutions that perform and sustain the investment over time, Fisher’s architectural division, FSI Architects has designed millions of square feet of space—including healthcare facilities, retail developments, manufacturing plants and distribution centers. Using Revit, a building information modeling system, owners can virtually walk through a facility before it is built, thinking through the systems and construction in advance, preparing for them to become reality. Owners value the flexibility design+build offers, as well as the ability to expedite

schedules and control the budget. The benefits are: • Single point of accountability—eliminating the need for excessive change orders. • Early determination of costs—establishing a project budget that is workable and firm. • Team approach—solving expected and unexpected challenges. • Value engineering—identifying costsaving measures without compromising quality. From working under the constraints of

limited budgets and compressed time frames to resolving the toughest design and environmental issues, Fisher & Sons goes the extra mile to deliver customer satisfaction. “Customer satisfaction is integral to our mission,” says Fisher Companies CEO Jerome Fisher. “The bottom line is we stand behind our work 100%.”

Richard M. Simcock, DDS, PS Do you know what an Endodontist is? If you don’t, you most likely aren’t alone. A recent survey by the American Association of Endodontists revealed that 90% of people don’t know. Simply put, an Endodontist is a dental specialist who performs root canals, exclusively. In addition to attending dental school for 4 years, an Endodontist spends an additional 2-3 years of studying and performing complex root canal treatments. During these extra years of training, Endodontists learn to diagnose and treat root canals surgically and non-surgically. Many times patients are concerned that root canal treatment will hurt. Endodontists also have additional training in anesthesia techniques, which aids greatly in assuring their patients’ comfort during treatments. The advancement in current dental technology has also shortened treatment time and helped in the predictability of successful treatment. These advancements include the surgical operating microscope

(magnifies the inside of the tooth), computerized measurements of the root system (more accurate measurements), digital radiographs (decreases radiation), and instrumentation techniques that can negotiate the most complex roots. “The abilities of a specialist increases efficiency, decreases dreaded chair time for patients, and in most cases, results in a painfree experience,” says Richard M. Simcock, DDS, PS., who practices in Mount Vernon. “Endodontists are an important part of

the dental team and work closely with the general dentist to help manage and treat the untimely tooth ache that sometimes occurs”. Next time you are advised you need a root canal, discuss with your general dentist whether an Endodontist would be a good choice for you.

Rulersmith, Inc. Rulersmith, Inc. is a laser cutting and screen printing job shop that specializes in the production of acrylic rulers and templates. We take pride in providing high quality products to our customers while still maintaining a competitive price. Starting with product design and development moving through production and finishing with custom packaging, Rulersmith has the solution for your acrylic laser cutting and screen printing needs. Rulersmith has been making rulers and templates since 1985. Our owner and President, Peggy Schafer, and her late husband Randy invented the Omnigrid quilting ruler. While quilting, Peggy was having trouble with the existing rulers on the market and asked her husband Randy, who was an experienced screen printer, to make her a better ruler. Using her idea that the ruler should perform well on light and dark fabric, Randy developed a black and yellow ruler that became the Omnigrid.

Shell Puget Sound Refinery The Shell Puget Sound Refinery is the second largest of four refineries located in Northern Puget Sound in Northwest Washington State. There are two refineries located near Anacortes. The one currently operated by Shell Oil, was originally constructed by the Texas Company in 1958. The refinery was built to supply West Coast markets originally with Canadian crude oil. The refinery was called the Texaco Anacortes Refinery from 1958-1998. The second refinery in Anacortes was originally constructed under the Shell Oil Company name, located just to the north of the Texaco Refinery. In 1998 when Shell and Texaco created the joint venture called Equilon, regulations prohibited two Shell locations in such close proximity to each other. Tesoro Petroleum bought the original Shell refinery located north of the present Shell refinery. The original Texaco Anacortes refinery became known as the Equilon Refinery from 1998-2002. In March 2002, when Texaco merged with Chevron, Shell

Oil Products US acquired full ownership of the Equilon refinery and continues to operate it as the Shell Puget Sound Refinery. Safety, health and environmental protection are the highest priorities for the refinery. Located in the pristine waters of Northern Puget Sound and at the gateway to the spectacular San Juan Islands, protection of the environment is a primary concern. More than 450 people are directly employed at the refinery. Approximately 250 additional contractors are also employed on an on-going basis. Employees are represent-

ed by United Steelworkers Union (USW) and are very involved in the local Anacortes and Skagit County communities, playing a vital role in making this area a great place to live.

Skagit Community Foundation The Skagit Community Foundation has been creating a community of giving since 1992. Its founders, Burl and Dorothy Ives and other Skagit County residents, first established the foundation to build a performing arts center – now known as McIntyre Hall. Soon after, they realized that the foundation could do far more to serve the growing and evolving needs of our community. We provide a vehicle for donors to establish charitable endowments for good forever in Skagit County. Today, our foundation manages funds that provide scholarships, protect our native farmlands, support libraries and distribute funds to survivors of unforeseen tragedies. Contributions are combined with funds set up by other caring Skagit County individuals, families and corporations that together create a Community of Donors.

As leaders in our community, we work closely with local nonprofit organizations and other resources to create positive and lasting change. It’s easy to get started. Whether you have special interests in the arts, education or the environment, The Skagit Community Foundation can help you create a plan that allows you to give to your favorite charity during and or after your lifetime - while meeting your current income needs and providing for your heirs.

We accept a wide variety of assets and provide flexible giving options that maximize your charitable impact, increase your tax benefits and most importantly, improve the lives of people who call Skagit County “home.”

Skagit County Government Skagit County’s Rural Character is a National Treasure The richest agricultural valley in the Western Hemisphere is located in Skagit County, Washington, nestled between the alpine mountains of the North Cascades and crystal clear seas of Puget Sound. Bountiful crops, including the finest red potatoes in the world, hundreds of acres of stunning tulips, dairy farms, green peas, berries, apples, and seed crops, make our county one of the most diverse and productive agricultural regions in the United States. In addition to a prosperous agriculturally based economy, Skagit County is rich in natural resource lands. With almost 500,000 acres of federally owned land, and large holdings of private forests, there is room for both industry and recreation. Thanks to a healthy local economy and an involved population, Skagit County is home to many new manufacturing and retail jobs. Skagit County elected officials have worked hard over the years to provide good

• • • • • • • •

stewardship to preserve our rural lifestyle, provide opportunity for family wage jobs, and protect the environment. Tourist opportunities abound. As the gateway to the world-famous San Juan Islands, the inland sea of Puget Sound provides a recreational Mecca for kayakers, boaters, fishers, and beachcombers. The North Cascades provides hiking, hunting, fishing, and sightseeing second to none. Skagit County elects its three Skagit County Commissioners by district. Ron Wesen represents District 1, Ken Dahlstedt

represents District 2, and Sharon Dillon represents District 3. To learn more about Skagit County, visit www.skagitcounty.net.

Skagit County EMS Commission The Skagit County Emergency Medical Services Commission is a diverse group of volunteers dedicated to providing countywide emergency medical services. Dr. Don Slack, County Medical Program Director, establishes pre-hospital medical protocols for life-sustaining treatment throughout the county and monitors the quality of care provided to you and your family. Each 9-1-1 call activates a protocoldriven cascade of emergency system elements. Dispatchers, local fire departments, EMTâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s, paramedics, search-and-rescue units, emergency aircraft and hospital emergency departments must function as a cohesive team in every response. First minutes are critical. Because emergency services form the initial response in the chain of survival, the system has come to be known as Medic One. Skagit County Medic One has operated with funds allocated by the Medic One Tax Levy since 1978. The EMS Commission coordinates, operates, provides and maintains this county-wide EMS system, with

the Skagit County Board of Commissioners maintaining ultimate authority through direct oversight of Medic One levy funds. The Skagit County EMS Commission believes that the best medicine is preventive medicine. The Commission, in cooperation with Safe Kids and the child passenger safety team, conducts regular car seat safety clinics to ensure that children are properly secure in their car seats. The Commissionâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s bicycle safety program offers low-cost bicycle helmets year round to the general public. The Skagit County EMS Commis-

sion is most concerned with saving lives and preserving quality of life. The Commission is also proud to offer CPR and first aid training to Skagit County residents. This service is made possible by the county-wide Medic One levy. Contact us for more information and the schedule.

As the Skagit River roiled against the Mount Vernon levee during the 1995 flood, Daryl Hamburg and several others watched the river eat away at the structure, bit by bit. “The river bank was folding away,” Hamburg said. “The river was pulling the dike apart.” It was 2 a.m. on the levee

just downstream of the Burlington Northern Santa Fe Railroad bridge on the Mount Vernon side. Hamburg, director of operations for Dike District Frank Varga / Skagit Valley Herald 17, felt a constant rumble under his feet. A crew from Burlington Northern Santa Fe Railroad pre“You ever watch Jell-O? pares to untie a rope from one of the logs they pulled from

the logjam beneath the railroad bridge that crosses the See LEVEES, Page A12 Skagit River between Mount Vernon and Burlington.

MOUNT VERNON — Four men worked most of Tuesday to remove a logjam that spanned two pilings of the Burlington Northern Santa Fe Railroad bridge. The driver repeatedly pushed the olive-green boat into the logjam, which spanned about 15 percent of the flooding river’s width. Once the boat was wedged among the logs, railroad workers wearing lifejackets and

wealth Fund, estimated 18.3 million people in that age group stand to benefit from provisions in the federal health law, including the expanded access to coverage, elimination of lifetime and annual spending caps on policies and, eventually, the end of insurers denying people coverage based on their medical histories. “For most older adults who are uninsured or underinsured, the early provisions, many of which went into effect this year, will provide transitional relief,” said

Sara Collins, Commonwealth Fund vice president and the report’s lead author. The study by the liberal-leaning nonprofit think tank found that unemployed workers between the ages of 55 and 64 years old had been jobless for an average of almost 45 weeks, the longest of any working age group. When people lose their jobs, they typically lose health coverage. “A loss of employment benefits can be devastating to people in this age group,” Collins said.

“For most older adults who are uninsured or underinsured, the early provisions, many of which went into effect this year, will provide transitional relief.”

California is one of 16 states where the uninsured rate for people in the 50- to 64-year-old age group is higher than the national average of about 15 percent. The study contends this age group has possibly the most to gain from some of the provisions in the new federal health law, which will probably end up before the U.S. Supreme Court.
