Transcript

By Scott RasmussenJournal editorPeriodic trips to the Sheriffs office had been one of my many tasks for the bet-ter part of the past 14 years.There, I would pull up a chair and hunker down in the back room and sift through the stack of incident reports.I would jot down relevant information of those that I determined to be newswor-thy and head back to the Journal to piece together the next installment of the San Juan County Sheriffs Log.I got to chit-chat with many of our dispatchers and depu-ties, and gain a better under-standing, to a degree, of the departments inner-workings along the way. Readers may recall a log entry would go something like this:July 27: A San Juan Island man claims the driver of a Dodge Durango threatened him with a knife during a con-frontation over an exit-only sign at a Friday Harbor home remodel center. The 33-year-old, working security outside the centers parking lot at the time, claims the driver entered the parking lot via its exit, pulled out a knife when confronted, exited through the entrance, and then sped away.From fender-benders to felony assault, that stack of reports worked as a window into some of the less attrac-tive, more unsettling and sometimes bizarre occur-rences that take place in this paradise. It chronicled everything from dog bites, DUIs, shoplifting, runaways, welfare checks, trespassing, suspicious activity, discov-ery of human remains and a whole lot more.Its no surprise that the sheriffs log, long before I inherited it, had been one of the newspapers most popu-lar features. It proved to be so on the Journal, Sounder and Weekly websites as well.But theres no real payoff in such trips to the sheriffs office any longer.The department is well on its way to going paper-less with its incident reports. That electronic format does not convert into something decipherable for the purpose of publication, even if a report is printed out. Much of the detail I relied on has been lost in translation.To its credit, the depart-ment does send out the occasional press release, the sheriff and undersheriff do field reporters questions and provide answers within the boundaries they believe apply to any given case, and Undersheriff Bruce Distler has recently floated several suggestions in an attempt to make available the kind of information that had previ-ously been right at ones fin-gertips.The sheriffs log offered a unique, ground floor look at what our local law enforce-ment and public safety offi-cials encounter day-in and day-out. It provided a sense of commonality as well as it cataloged incidents from all across the county. And, perhaps most importantly, it was a reminder that trouble can arise even in paradise, and that things can go amiss.It would seem that the sheriffs log is now a relic of a bygone era, like the Pony Express, a casualty of prog-ress, rendered obsolete, or, in this case, dislodged and displaced by the sought-after efficiencies of the digital age.Thats a shame.TheWeeklyIslandsTheWeeklyIslandsTheIslandsWeeklyINSIDE Natural History . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . .

If so, fos-tering may be for you.Crowded shelters on the mainland are always in need of foster parents, and the islands facilities are no dif-ferent.If folks feel like they cant adopt a dog or cat because they travel frequently or are only part-time residents, then fostering can be a great solution, said Orcas Animal Shelter Director Marsha Waunch. They can enjoy a pet for the time they have available.Shelters can be high stress environments for animals strangers coming to visit and being in a kennel can cause anxiety. One solution is plac-ing the cat or dog in a tempo-rary home until a permanent adopter comes forward.We have a foster mother who is really into helping out the old dogs, said Friday Harbor Animal Shelter Director Leslie Byron. She keeps them all the way until the end if she can.The local shelters provide food and medical care for pets placed in foster fami-lies. If a potential adopter is interested in seeing the ani-mal, they can either visit the home or make an arrange-ment to meet at the shelter. Some foster families end up keeping the dog or cat, Byron said. They become part of the family.In Friday Harbor, there is a particular need for people willing to care for new born kittens, which means bottle feeding them until they are ready to live full-time at the shelter.The Lopez Animal Protection Society, which doesnt have a facility, relies entirely on foster volun-teers. The non-profit seldom receives dogs but has a high number of cat surrenders. We have a need not as great as the other islands but we do need foster homes, said Director Joyce Myhr. Edith Edwards purchased a farm on Lopez Island after her retirement and has taken in a host of unwanted animals including a horse, a pony, three sheep, a rooster, hens, cats and dogs.Fostering is wonderful if one has the space the animals have a safe place, even if its temporarily, Edwards said. It is so need-ed because on Lopez we dont have a facility. I hope more people both foster and adopt there are so many animals in need.She said the most reward-ing part of her rescue farm is watching the transforma-tion of her critters.Many of them were afraid of people but over time they become so lov-ing, Edwards said. Its a healing and beautiful thing. Its very special.The Orcas shelter has three cats in foster situa-tions. One is permanent but the other two will be return-ing soon. We have several cats right now that would really benefit from a foster family, Waunch said. The Orcas shelter also has a senior mastiff mix named Bubba who hasnt had any interest from poten-tial adopters. Waunch says he is an ideal candidate for a foster family. He doesnt require much exercise and is happy to just lay in the sun but cant be in a home with cats or very small chil-dren. There are two addi-tional senior dogs who need foster homes but havent yet been surrendered to the shelter. According to www.pet-finder.com, to be a success-ful foster parent, you need a compassionate nature, the cooperation of your fam-ily or roommates, flexibility and some knowledge of ani-mal behavior. The length of time a foster pet may stay in your home varies with the animals situation.It can also be very dif-ficult to let go once you have become emotion-ally attached to an animal, according to the website. Be prepared for tears and heartache when the day comes that you must bring your first foster pet back to the shelter. But remem-ber, he or she is now much more likely to find a loving, permanent home because of the care you gave them.Contact the shelters:Orcas Animal Protection: www.orcaspets.org, 376-6777Friday Harbor Animal Shelter: www.apsfh.com, 378-2158Lopez Animal Protection: lopezanimals.org, 468-2258Help to foster animals in needContributed photoLopez Island Fire & EMS Want to ThankOur Graduating 2014 Student VolunteersConnor ChristieSamuel HellerMadeline JordanFletcher MooreSarah ReeveFor Their Time and DedicationTo Serve the Lopez Island Community!Autumn GruenwaldChase SchoberFor more information callCali at the Weekly 376-4500Publishes the week of July 1stin the Journal, Sounder & WeeklySales Deadline: Tuesday, June 17, 2014AVAILABLEYEAR ROUND2014Parks &TrailsGuide!For more information callCali at the Weekly Cali at the Weekly Cali at the Weekly 376-4500Publishes the week of July 1stin the Journal, Sounder & WeeklySales Deadline: Tuesday, June 17, 2014AVAILABLEYEAR ROUNDAVAILABLEYEAR ROUNDParks &Parks &Parks &TrailsTrailsGuide!Guide!Guide!Guide!

Your online sourcewww.islandsweekly.comCommunityCalendarDeep gratitudeWe would like to express our deepest gratitude to everyone who has offered help of all kinds, brought us meals and household goods, donated to our fund and held us in thought and prayer these past five weeks since the fire. We lost our home, office, shop and barn. But our family is intact, our busi-ness has continued with little interruption, and we have been overwhelmed with offers of help and expressions of concern and care. We would like to offer special thanks to the follow-ing people and businesses, beginning with the Lopez Fire Department and chief Jim Ghiglione and his crew. To Stuart Post, who took it on himself to save a comput-er hard drive containing 12 years of business records. We are deeply indebted to the OPALCO crew Steve Dengler and Brian Swanson for responding the night of the fire and making sure we had power to our remaining buildings. Karen Gilbert and Marty Clark took us in and have done so much to help us recover, Lopez Community Church and Tom and Joyce Lyster who have done so much to help us and hold us up for clarity and guid-ance. The entire Islanders Bank crew has been won-derful, helping us recover while we wait for insurance money, especially Becky Lehman and Mike Taylor. We could not navigate the pitfalls of insurance with-out the help of Islanders Insurance, especially Gigi Zakula and Kerwin Johnson. The staff at the Lopez School who made sure Ellery and Jake were sup-ported and resupplied. The cards from the school were particularly touching. Dirk Ellings and Jeff Hein made sure our utilities were functional and safe. Buffum Brothers, as usual, went above and beyond helping with cleanup and adjust-ment. We would also like to single out Tommer Roush, Rick Hughes, JC and Suzi Marean for special thanks as well. Additionally, our suppli-ers and business partners near and far have been ter-rific. Thanks to our tremen-dous crew and wonderful customers. Going through an experi-ence like this illustrates for us that family, business and community are more than a facility or possessions. The events of the last five weeks have strengthened the con-nections and relationships that are the basis of our continued existence and success here. In the years to come we look forward to returning, with interest, all the kind-ness, generosity and bless-ings you have bestowed on us, for not just these past five weeks, but for all our years on Lopez Island. This has been and con-tinues to be a major disrup-tion for us personally and for our business. Recovery will be slow, but for us, the blessings we have received vastly outweigh the nega-tives. This fire could have been a true disaster on so many levels. It was not, and we again, from the bottom of our hearts, thank all of you who helped.NICK & SARA JONES & FAMILYLopez IslandThank you LopezThank you to the Lopez Community for your gener-osity and support.

In reality, marine ecosys-tems are very noisy. At the frequencies heard by most fish, the oceans have been as noisy as busy city streets for hundreds of millions of years. Human activities have nonetheless recently added new layers of noise to an already noisy ocean.Eerie marine mammal songs were popularized in the 1960s, but from a human point of view, fish songs are boring series of grunts, barks, chirps, and buzzes. Very sexy to other fish, however; and as more fish are subjected to acoustic studies, it appears that song is as widespread a tool for attracting mates and demarcating territory in fishes, as among birds. In addition, many underwater predators eavesdrop on fish songs to target their prey.Fish are the oldest sur-viving class of vertebrate animals, emerging over 400 million years ago, and at an early stage they evolved two kinds of acoustic organs: internal ears with a cover-ing of fine hairs that sense high-pitched vibrations, and rows of pressure-sensitive skin cells (the lateral line) that sense very low-pitched sounds and movement. Fish hear in two ranges one that overlaps with the lower octaves of human hearing, and another that is sensitive to low bass sounds that humans tend to feel rather than hear. Sound propagates bet-ter in water than air, and the deep bass singing of some whales and fish can be heard and understood by animals miles away. Indeed, hearing in air posed a serious challenge for the first vertebrate animals to explore the land. Significant changes in vertebrate ears can be seen in the fossil record about 250 million years ago, associated with the initial transition from water to air. Reptiles, birds and mammals have ears with several tiny interlock-ing bones that help amplify high frequencies that carry farther in air. The ears of a bat can detect the faint echo of a hypersonic chirp bouncing off the wings of a moth a hundred feet away, but not the deep bass thrumming of a lovesick codfish!In light of the pervasive role of sound in marine ani-mals feeding and reproduc-tion, it should not be surpris-ing that human noise has significant impacts. From the creaking of the boards and pulleys on old wooden sailing ships, to the engines and sonar of modern ships, humans have been making the oceans noisier for cen-turies. Modern propulsion sys-tems, with petroleum-burn-ing engines and electrical motors, pose particular problems because they emit mainly low-frequency infrasound, just about in the range most widely utilized by fish. Marine engines may be broadcasting confusing love notes to fish for hun-dreds of miles around.Fish and marine mam-mals have some ability to move away from noisy patches of ocean, although the long-distance propaga-tion of sound underwater makes this much harder for marine animals than their terrestrial cousins. The greatest threat is to animals that cannot afford to abandon their habitat: for example, rockfish nest-ing in a rocky reef such as Bell Island here in San Juan County. Summer increases in engine noise conflict with crucial, site-specific warm weather activities such as nesting, spawning, and rear-ing young. A great deal remains to be learned about the vocal range of fishes, the use and meaning of fish songs and acrobatic per-formances that sometimes accompany them, and the possible adverse impacts of competing human noise. It may turn out that damping engine noise in marine ves-sels is as important for pro-tecting the marine environ-ment, as reducing engine emissions.Learn more about near-shore fish research in the San Juan Islands at www.kwiaht.org.

Currently the Fiscal Year 2015 Presidents Budget Request does not include funding for contin-ued production of EA-18G Growlers, an aircraft manu-factured by Boeing. Over 25,000 electronic letters have been sent to Congress to ask for addition-al production of the Growler to the Fiscal Year 2015 bud-get from a link on Boeings website. fa-18.com/contact-congress/?gclid=CPTn5MiFor4CFQqIfgodQHAAnA. San Juan Countys popula-tion is only 15,800. Since we are the ones that live with the noise, not the 25,000 folks from Boeings website, it is incumbent upon us to point this out. When the Growlers flew over young children play-ing T-ball at a park on Whidbey Island, the game was cancelled because the children fell to the ground holding their ears. I concur with the five year old who was there holding his ears and said, Mommy, my ears are breaking. I too have had to plug my ears at 9:40 at night on Lopez because the noise was excruciat-ing. Remember to record Growler noise disturbanc-es to the County website: http://sjcgis.org/aircraft-noise-reporting/. Do not underestimate the value of your comments.

This spring, the Washington Department of Fish and Wildlife (WDFW) set out a proposed rule change that could change recreational and commercial harvest of surf smelt. Surf smelt, small schooling fish, provide important food for a wide variety of animals, including seabirds, fish and marine mammals. After hearing concerns about con-flicting uses down-sound from shoreline property owners and commercial and recreational fishers, WDFW proposed three options to change harvest regulations for surf smelt, including full closure of commercial harvest and reduction in recreational harvest.We appreciate WDFWs attention to protecting surf smelt, but the agency needs to take two other steps in con-junction with any proposed changes to harvest rules. First, we need to learn just how many smelt swim in the Salish Sea, and whether current harvests threaten those fish. WDFW completed the most recent smelt stock assessment back in the mid-1990s when it concluded that one percent of the smelt were being harvested. In the absence of updated fish population data, it is difficult to evaluate the three alter-natives proposed by the rule change.In addition, the proposed rules risk eliminating one of the few remaining long-term fishing traditions in San Juan County, and further disconnecting us from the natural environment. Instead, we encourage the Fish and Wildlife Commission to direct the WDFW to devote the necessary resources to assessing surf smelt populations and trends in San Juan County and throughout the Salish Sea.Second, we encourage WDFW to improve its protection of spawning habitat. If ongoing shoreline modifications such as hard rock bulkheads continue to be allowed at known spawning beaches, they will undermine any efforts to safeguard the stock using harvest limitations or fishing restrictions. By protecting spawning sites, WDFW can help ensure the health of the fishery at this most critical stage.The public is welcome to comment through May 30, 2014 at wdfw.wa.gov/fishing/regulations/smelt/.Randy OBryant is a commercial smelt fisherman on Lopez Island. Tina Whitman is a forage fish researcher and Science Director at FRIENDS of the San Juans.Program for safeguarding smeltThe San Juan County Council approved 16 grants recommended by the Lodging Tax Advisory Committee on May 13. The total allocated was $409,000, which left a $6,000 balance. The grants are for the 2015 calendar year and will be distributed next year.The grants approved were for Performing Arts Centers on Orcas, Lopez and San Juan Islands, $90,000 to be split; Orcas Chamber Music festival, $2,700; KWIAHT, $1,500; Arts Council for studio tours on Orcas, Lopez and San Juan Island, $5,000; Cider and Mead Festival, Orcas Island, $1,000; Wednesday night Farmers Market, $3,500; Multi-Market promotion poster, $2,500; SJC Historical Museums, $67,500; Pavilion Roof for Island Rec, $6,000; Friday Harbor Film Festival, $5,500; Pioneer Festival, $1,500; Ag Guild/ARC $3,000; SJI Museum of Art $10,000; SJC Parks and Fair, $200,000; Birding Festival, $5,800 and Orcas Shakespeare Festival, $3,500.Many of the grant amounts were less than groups requested, but only the Youth Conservation Corps on Lopez, Orcas and San Juan Island were shut out with a zero recommendation of a $32,000 request. Councilman Jamie Stephens objected to the failure of the LTAC to recommend anything for the Conservation Corps; no rea-son was given for the advi-sory committee decision.The LTAC facilities grants are about half of the lodging tax funds available for distribution by the coun-ty. The other half is used for tourism promotion; 85 percent for the San Juan Island Visitors Bureau and five percent for the Orcas, Lopez and San Juan cham-bers of commerce.The detailed grant appli-cations can be found at san-juanco.com/LTAC/appli-cants.aspx.The membership of the LTAC can be found at http://sanjuanco.com/council/A d v i s o r y C o m m i t t e e s .aspx?committee=20.Grants approved for 2015Across1.

Baker Care Center in Bellingham, Wash. where she had resided for just over one year. The sole surviving child of John and Annie Wadsworth, who were from England, she was born on October 3, 1917 in Schiller Park, Ill. Edith married Harold R. Schwendeman (deceased 2/8/95) on August 10, 1940, and they resided in Franklin Park, Ill. until retiring to Lopez Island, Wash. in 1974. As many of her Lopez friends know, Edith was a very accom-plished lapidary (cutting & polishing stones) as well as goldsmith and silversmith, and in younger days, received many awards for her hand made jewelry. She was also one of the original founding mem-bers of the Lopez Island Enchanted Quilters and hand quilted 17 quilts, in the last few years arthritis had prevented Edith from continuing her hobbies. Survivors include one son, Harold (Ray) and daughter-in-law Kathleen (Kathy) Schwendeman of Sumner, Wash. and 4 grand-sons, Thomas (Kirsten) Schwendeman and family of Clayton, Wis., Craig (Kristy) Schwendeman and family of Sumner, Wash., Daniel (Naoko) Schwendeman and family of Farmington, Utah, and Eric (Wendy) Schwendeman and family of St. Croix Falls, Wis. Edith is also the great-grandmoth-er of 16 great-grandchildren and 8 great-great-grandchil-dren. (Whew!) Graveside services will be held on Friday, May 30, 2014 at 12:30 pm at Lopez Union Cemetery, 312 Davis Bay Road, followed by a memorial service at 1:30 pm at Lopez Island Community Church at 91 Lopez Road, officiated by Pastor Jeff Smith, and followed by a reception in the church hall. Arrangements are in the care of Evans Funeral Chapel and Crematory, Inc., Anacortes, Wash. and the San Juan Islands. To share memories of Edith, please sign the online guest reg-ister at www.evanschapel.com.Longtime resident of Lopez Island, Steven Young died on April 20, 2014 after a 9-month illness. Born in Princeton, New Jersey, Steve lived on the East Coast until he attended graduate school in Berkeley, Calif., where he completed a doctoral degree. He taught English at Pomona College from 1967 until his retire-ment in 2004.Steve became a part time resident of Lopez in 1971 and moved here fulltime in 2004. He was very active in Lopez community the-ater, acting in several pro-ductions and most recently directing Volpone in 2013.

Five crews of local middle and high school youth will be completing steward-ship projects at 14 public recreation sites through-out the county. Youth corps arent new to the islands. The Lopez Island Conservation Corps began in 2007, and the long term vision was to have the program expand through the islands says Amanda Wedow, LICC Program Director. We are pleased to see that goal realized with conservation corps established on Lopez, San Juan, and Orcas. Together we can offer a better edu-cational experience for our youth. With the island wide part-nership, LICC, San Juan Island Conservation Corps, and Orcas Island Youth Conservation Corps expect to have 40 youth involved this summer. Lopez Is land Conservation Corps will be partnering with the Bureau of Land Management and San Juan County Land Bank to improve trail accessi-bility by spreading gravel at Watmough Bight and Hummel Lake. LICC will also maintain the LIFE Trail, remove invasive species at BLM sites, and work with the San Juan Conservation District to train youth as energy stewards. The San Juan Island Conservation Corps enters its third season with three middle school crews focus-ing on island marble butter-fly and native plant habitat restoration for the National Park Service, trail main-tenance and construction with the SJCLB, and GIS mapping of invasive species and their removal for the BLM.The Orcas Island Youth Conservation Corps, now in its second year, will work with Orcas Parks and Rec to renovate the Vitality Trail in Buck Park. OIYCC will also assist the San Juan Preservation Trust in con-trol of Scots broom on ease-ment properties, help the SJCLB on a waterfront trail in Deer Harbor, and coor-dinate with the BLM and Kwhiat on invasive weed control and trail establish-ment on the small islands of the San Juan Islands National Monument. In August members of the Washington Trails Association will work with OIYCC on the Mountain Lake trail in Moran State Park.Program funding comes from a range of grants, contracts, and donations. OIYCC has received wide community support says Mary Gropp, OIYCC Program Director. As with the other island youth conservation corps, ongo-ing funding is an unsolved part of the puzzle. Although nearing our funding goal for 2014, we are still tak-ing donations to support our work. Donations can be made through the Madrona Institute website, or the Orcas Island Community Foundation GiveOrcas cam-paign. In addition to supporting our public lands, crew mem-bers get an opportunity to explore future careers, earn community service hours, an educational award, and learn environment educa-tion. Students in conserva-tion corps programs often become employed in public lands as scientists, rang-ers and educators, become activists for social and ecological justice, organic farmers, informed stew-ards, and community lead-ers, all valuable and needed roles in our modern world, explains Sarah Hanson, SJICC program director.

The Lopez Co-operative Preschool has been operating on Lopez for over 30 years, and it is admin-istered and maintained by the parents of preschoolers. Each family shares in the operation of the school, helping to lower operating costs and tuition. There is one parent present during each preschool session to assist the teachers, sup-port the children, provide snacks, and clean up the classroom. The Change for the Future fundraiser goal of $3,000 will close the gap of funding that is needed for the operating cost going into the 2014-15 school year. Look for decorated change containers that are present at businesses around town. Donations can also be dropped off at the Lopez Childrens Center office or mailed to P.O Box 867 attn: Preschool Change for the Future.By K. Blanc-Ridings and M.L. MeadowsSpecial to the WeeklyIceberg Point State Park received a generous helping of thirty-three hours of TLC on Saturday, April 19. A first look at the shoreline, prior to cleanup, gave little clue to the amount of debris that would be harvested that day. Nonetheless, three hours and 11 volunteers later, the bed of a park service utility truck was filled to capacity with litter bags filled with sty-rofoam, plastics, and broken glass. Several large, weather-worn pieces of chemically treated ply-wood, and a dis-carded vehicle tire were also hauled away. The organizers of the cleanup event were Khorsian Blanc-Ridings, Eli Derzay, Heather Gladstone, and Kim Pascuito. They cre-ated the TLC service proj-ect as a Lopez-based Earth Day Event. Their collabo-ration with the Bureau of Land Management and the San Juan Islands National Monument attracted BLM Ranger and LSJI Alum, Nick Teague, whose expert guidance, ready laughter and hands-on support kept the crew safe and effective. The four Lopez graduates of the 2014 Leadership San Juan Islands program, were fulfilling a service day component of the course. Additional crew volunteers were: co-cohort mem-ber David Harsch, Hayley Edmonston (Mt. Rainier National Park), Liam Paige (Orcas high school student), and the current LSJI program co-directors Tara Dalton, Lee Taylor, and Morgan Meadows. Much gratitude goes to all these volunteers, as well as Barbara Fulton and Ralph Bladt, for hosting the work crews lunch gathering on their land. Ciro Pascuito treated everyone to his homemade wood-fired pizza before the crew, now friends, dispersed to other events and plans for the day.Visit www.lsji.org to learn more about local leadership opportunities.The Islands Weekly www.islandsweekly.com June 3, 2014 Page 8Islands WeeklyPO Box 39Lopez, WA 98261ECRWSSPOSTAL CUSTOMERPRSRT STD US POSTAGEPAIDSOUND PUBLISHING98204Puzzle Answers Contributed photo / Tara DaltonBack Row: D.
