FREED FROM JAIL A hardy thank you to everyone who stood tall in opposition to the now-defunct jail tax Proposition You did not stand down, it was not a done deal, the ship had not sailed, the train is still in the station and it was not a waste of our time. The voters said no, with an even greater margin again! I like to give credit where credit is due, so this is also an acknowledgement of Mayor Jon Mutchler, who voted to run the jail tax on the 2017 ballot. Without Mutchler s disparaging comments about seven council members who did not follow the leader, I would not have known to acknowledge their bold actions. Last week, we journeyed to three local government councils to acknowledge the seven council members. In Ferndale, we acknowledged Cathy Watson and Teresa Taylor. In Bellingham, April Barker and Dan Hammill. In Whatcom County, Ken Mann, Barry Buchanan, and Todd Donovan. The Lummi Nation is also doing great work in keeping their citizens out of the jail with new programs and policies. Lynden Mayor Scott Korthuis indicated he did not know who Vera Institute of Justice is and had not read their report to Whatcom County about how we can reduce our jail population by at least 30 percent. If other council members had bothered to read mail TOC LETTERS STAFF this report they may have voted differently. The Vera report totally validated the work of Restorative CommUnity Coalition. In 2015, our president, Joy Gilfilen, ran for Whatcom County Executive and was the only candidate who openly opposed the jail tax educating the public, creating enough doubt for voters to turn it down. Our County Council formed the Incarceration Prevention & Reduction Task Force and soon after hired the Vera Institute, renowned researcher, to investigate our justice system, which produced a scathing condemnation of our policies and procedures. Unlike Mayor Korthuis, go educate yourself. Don t play blind man s bluff and be led down a dark hole of disaster for our county. If their jail plan were implemented, over time it would bankrupt this county. If you want to know how we can reduce the jail population, which I believe has been kept artificially overcrowded, see Bellingham s report on their new practices and savings to their city. Irene Morgan, Restorative CommUnity Coalition GAMBLING FOR THE THRILL OF THE KILL A month later, the authorities, despite great efforts, have been unable to unearth a motive for the horrendous slaughter in Las Vegas. Investigators may still discover an explanation that provides some acceptable narrative for
5 that onslaught. It might be comforting to discover the killer was an ISIS agent or an atheist out to slay Christian country music fans or a gambler avenging his losses. We would then know whom to hate. The shooter seems not to have been on a suicide mission. He only shot himself to avoid apprehension. It seems he hoped to escape and continue his assault at yet another site. So, why did he undertake to kill so many people he did not know? The reason for that deadly rampage may be far more frightening. The answer may lie right before our eyes. Consider: An individual, having gone to extraordinary lengths and untold expense to acquire an arsenal of deadly assault weapons, may have long fantasized about using them to carry out an historic event, either heroic or heinous. What if Stephen Paddock had simply wanted to experience the thrill of the kill? On a hitherto unheard of scale? We know one other fact about the shooter: He was an avid gambler. Maybe he was setting up the ultimate highstakes bet. Could he massacre vast numbers in his extended sniper attack and get away with it? That is not an unprecedented phenomenon. In 1924, in the Crime of the Century, a case that riveted the attention of the whole country, Nathan Leopold, Jr. and Richard Loeb, two wealthy college students in Chicago, killed 14-yearold Bobby Frank just for the thrill of it. Their admitted objective was to prove their intellectual superiority by having committed the perfect crime. Since that time there have been periodic killings done by individuals who afterward explained they had wanted to experience what it felt like to kill. Several recent murders of homeless individuals have been so explained. Such bloodlust, deliberately targeting random, innocent victims is especially difficult to contemplate. There is no way to protect oneself from such attacks. When mass killings are associated with some political agenda, we immediately label them terrorist attacks. Without such association, they still evoke unmitigated terror among us. Perhaps we should describe events like the Las Vegas mayhem as terrorism for the thrill of it attacks.

This isn t even close to what we ve been showing the public, McAuley noted at the regular meeting of the commission. I m not necessarily upset there is a new plan, but there is no way, he said, that I m going to advocate for this plan. The waterfront master development agreement was approved in 2013 by the port commission and Bellingham City Council after extensive public review. It was understood the 2013 plan could change when the master developer arrived. Harcourt Developments, the Irish development firm, issued their plan modifications in McAuley explained that for more than a year the public had been shown a plan that calls for green space along the edge of Whatcom Waterway coupled with a serpentine park through the center of the waterfront site that would create connectivity through the downtown to parks and trails to the south. The commission advocated for this earlier plan. We have shown the earlier design with the serpentine park at almost every meeting for about a year, McAuley said. Then, with zero public input nobody knows who was in the room when this new design was proposed, I don t know who was in the room came this new plan. My initial response was this is a very interesting concept, and I think I was polite when I saw this, but upon reflection I actually started to get a little bit angry, he admitted. We had a developer that had agreed to something in In one work day, it was completely erased and replaced with something we ve never seen before. Years late on completion of the Granary, late on the submission of a design for a second building in the waterfront district sub-area, Harcourt last year brushed all that aside with a proposal to begin work on an elaborate hotel and conference center. A year later, Harcourt returned with another plan to build student housing and an assisted living project. Each housing project, based on the sophomoric site sketches submitted by Harcourt last month, would be the size of a stadium each building larger in scale than the entire Fairhaven urban center. In early 2017, the cash-strapped Irish developer refinanced nearly $100 million in bank loans with companies involved in the development of its Belfast Titanic Quarter redevelopment. A quick sale of the Bellingham waterfront to the developer of lucrative specialized housing for students and the elderly could yield Harcourt additional working capital. This alternative plan was driven by large niche market corporations D2 Architects, developers of assisted living complexes, and Valeo, developers of student housing. Under the proposal, Harcourt which by contract can purchase the property at submarket rates could flip parcels to these firms for easy cash flow. This may assist a financially stressed Harcourt but it appears to abandon much of what was desirable in the vision originally presented to the public. The projects do not roar economic development or living-wage job creation, McAuley complained. BY SEN. KEVIN RANKER LAST WEEK, with the election of Manka Dhingra, Democrats gained control of the Washington State Senate and we finished building the Blue Wall between California, Oregon, and Washington. Today, we begin implementing an agenda that truly represents our core values. We will now block Trump along the entire West Coast. We will not only protect the rights of all people LGBTQ, immigrants, women, children, the poor but we will also support them. We will develop and pass policies that support mental health, homeless, education (both higher and K-12) and the environment. Today is an incredible day one I have dreamed of for five years, but was overwhelmed by since the election last November. This incredible accomplishment happened because thousands of you did more than you have ever done in so very many ways. You are incredible. I am so very proud to get to represent so many wonderful, special, caring people. I sincerely thank you for empowering me to do more! Take some time to reflect upon this remarkable accomplishment. Celebrate and enjoy the people around you. Build your energy and recognize your part in this, whether directly supporting the special election of Manka that flipped the Washington State Senate, or joining the Women s March or another protest or writing postcards, making phone calls or giving money, your part in this Resistance is beginning to make very real and powerful progress. It is very important to recognize VIEWS EXPRESSED ARE NOT NECESSARILY THOSE OF CASCADIA WEEKLY views YOUR VIEWS THE GRISTLE Big Blue Wall ELECTION BRINGS NEW, POWERFUL OPPORTUNITIES and celebrate accomplishments take a moment to recognize yours. We must also, however, remember we are not done. We need to build our strength and begin the focus on We must work to build our majorities in the state Legislature and we must focus on Congress. We must take our country back and ensure that all of our leaders are motivated by kindness and love. That our laws protect and celebrate diversity, community and raise each of us to have healthy and happy lives. On the eve of this election, I found myself reflecting upon the conversation I had with Stella, the incredibly brave trans girl who inspired much of my Hope and Action talk I gave early this year around the state about what we can do to make a difference. She left me with something I shared during those KEVIN RANKER LIVENS UP TO THE CROWD talks that is even more powerful and appropriate today. If you see anything on Facebook or Twitter that advocates for anything that you support, she wrote, do it. Show up and support that cause. Also any sort of protest, I would say, go do it. Fight for what you know and think is right. And do it not only for the people you know, but do it for yourself. Support business, organizations and people who also believe in the same values. Use your voice. Stand up for others. Most of all be kind, to yourself and others. Most of all, be kind to yourself and others. Let us all be motivated by Stella s words as we advance our agenda in the coming year. Kevin Ranker is the senate representative of the 40th Legislative District.

This new design is not even close to what the public asked us to provide, McAuley commented. What I see instead of a park is a plaza in front of a six-story assisted living complex which doesn t provide a lot of new jobs, and the ones that typically are created are not the sort of highpaying jobs that the public has asked the port to pursue, McAuley observed. Commissioner Bobby Briscoe supported McAuley s concerns, and Port Executive Director Rob Fix apologized for the cartoony appearance of the recent site sketches. Yet Director Fix had earlier admitted he d seen plans such as these weeks before they were shown to the commission. Which is it, a careful and incremental plan months in the making? Or something crudely sketched on a paper cocktail napkin a few hours before it was enthusiastically cheered by port and city planners? Look: The entire purpose of seeking a global master developer was to take advantage of private working capital for expedited world-class outcomes. It appears we may have instead a distressed developer who seeks to milk the Bellingham waterfront as a cash cow for other projects. Why support this? In the days following the election, Michael Shepard moved ahead of incumbent Commissioner Dan Robbins in late returns. Shepard has continued to increase his lead in successive counts as ballots poured in from Bellingham districts. Shepard was unique among the candidates for suggesting that the very remoteness of the developer, their lack of an office or a representative agent in Bellingham, their lack of connectedness to the community, could be issues moving forward. He was clear that the community needs to continue to control the vision for waterfront redevelopment. Together with Ken Bell s win in the District 2 position, a change-up creates an almost entirely new commission, with not a single member responsible for the misguided, inverted plan for Bellingham s central waterfront. With the arrival of two new commissioners perhaps comes a more circumspect approach to that plan. Let s hope new brains and renewed diligence will continue to echo McAuley s concerns.

A leading theory is the whales are starving because they cannot find enough Chinook salmon, the endangered fish that the resident orcas eat almost exclusively. Concerns are increasing that the iconic whales are on a path to extinction. The leadership council for the state s Puget Sound Partnership passed a resolution last week recognizing the connection between the fish and whales, and committed to accelerating the recovery of both species. The Puget Sound Partnership is the state agency leading the region's collective effort to restore and protect the Salish Sea. The Partnership also released last week a 2017 State of the Sound report that for the first time acknowledges that the goals the state Legislature laid out when it formed the partnership 10 years ago will not be met by the target of The seven-member council includes representatives from throughout the Puget Sound region and is the governing body of the state agency. The report calls for expedited action to continue working toward a healthy Puget Sound beyond Policymakers thought they were being realistic but tough when they set the recovery target goal when the former director of the state Dept. of Ecology, Christine Gregoire, was governor. Now that goal looks to be unrealistic, even naive. Puget Sound Partnership Leadership Council Chair Jay Manning told the Skagit Valley Herald he believes the expertise of local organizations will be key in moving salmon and orca recovery forward, and in achieving the larger goals of Puget Sound recovery. Manning was the director of Ecology during Gregoire s administration. I think that question is going to be asked: What can and should be done locally? Manning said. I m very eager to have that conversation with the local folks. They know the watershed best, and I know they care about Chinook and orca recovery. The report urges Puget Sound residents to support state and local efforts as they go about the extraordinarily difficult task of preventing projects and activities that will harm the Sound. Recovering a large, complex estuarine system is a complicated business, leadership council authors acknowledge in their report. We have done many good things, but the system has not yet responded positively. LOCAL SUCCESSES As one of the organizations working to prevent pollution from harming the Sound, RE Sources agrees with the report s fundamental message. Restoration alone isn t enough, said RE Sources clean water program manager Ann Russell. The need to identify and stop sources of pollution are critical, and will become even more important as our region continues to grow. The report notes that an estimated 1,000 people every week are moving into the Puget Sound basin. At the same time, RE Sources was heartened that the report called out several projects in Whatcom County that have made a positive difference. The report specifically cites the reopening of shellfish beds in Drayton Harbor and efforts to
9 use natural infrastructure to filter polluted stormwater runoff entering Lake Whatcom, Bellingham s drinking water source. RE Sources played a role in these successful projects. For decades, Drayton Harbor provided ideal growing conditions for shellfish and created jobs for many in the local community. But by 1995, much of Drayton Harbor was classified as prohibited for shellfish harvesting because fecal bacteria from livestock, on-site sewage systems, boats and marinas, and the local sanitary sewer system were contaminating the shellfish beds. After 25 years of community-led hard work and dedication, 810 acres of shellfish beds in Drayton Harbor were reclassified as approved for shellfish harvest. Harvests resumed for the first time in 22 years. For Lake Whatcom, three projects noted in the report reduced the pollution carried by stormwater runoff. we know from experience that when the people of Whatcom County work together to stop pollution, we get results. ANN RUSSELL, RE SOURCES CLEAN WATER PROGRAM MANAGER These projects restored a stream channel to naturally filter out pollution and involved building swales, stormwater vaults, and rain gardens to slow the water and remove pollution. Stormwater runoff was treated for 150 acres. This was a joint stormwater retrofit program between Whatcom County and the City of Bellingham and was funded in part by an Ecology stormwater financial assistance grant. RE Sources clean water program championed these efforts. It s a tough challenge, Russell said. And we know from experience that when the people of Whatcom County work together to stop pollution, we get results that everyone who cares about the Salish Sea can own and be proud of. GLOBAL CONCERNS In 2007, the state legislature found that the degradation of and risk to the Puget Sound ecosystem warranted the formation of an entity focused on restoring and protecting the Sound. The formative statute of the Puget Sound Partnership notes that it is the goal of the state that the health of Puget Sound be restored by Ten years after the statute was enacted, the region has succeeded in forming regional and subregional plans and management systems to make recovery happen. Thousands of projects have been successfully completed and more are underway. Unfortunately, our collective efforts have been insufficient, Leadership council authors admit. While we are making important progress in some areas, many key indicators of ecosystem health are not showing improvement. Worse yet, some key indicators, such as resident orca and Chinook salmon populations, remain in a perilous state. Despite the efforts of so many, it is time to admit that we will not recover Puget Sound to good health by 2020 the goal that was set 10 years ago when the Partnership was created. This is obviously disappointing, the authors note, and we need to examine our program to identify needed improvements. We must be willing to conduct an honest, clear-eyed review of where we are and where we are headed. Course corrections must be identified and implemented soon to get Puget Sound on an acceptable recovery trajectory. Of nearly two dozen metrics that gauge the health of Puget Sound, only three are on or near their 2020 targets, according to the report. These noted successes include slowing the rate of forest loss to development and shoreline management to discourage the erosion of bluffs. Areas of alarming declines include chinook salmon and herring populations, and the impacts on food web to dependent indicator species like orcas. As of September 2017, the Southern Resident killer whale population has only 76 individuals; recovery depends on increasing its main prey, chinook salmon; reducing the load of toxins entering Puget Sound; and minimizing the impacts and risks of vessel traffic. Pacific herring, small schooling fish that are important prey for salmon and other species, continue to show signs of decline. Marine scientists suspect the rate of decline in orca population exceeds the slow improvements to the Puget Sound ecosystem, making the extinction of Southern Residents inevitable without improved action. If we lose Southern Resident orcas, we will have failed in our job, Todd Hass, a conservation biologist who serves on the Partnerhsip s leadership council, stated. We need to bring the orcas back to stable numbers and to do that we need to bring Chinook salmon back to stable numbers. The leadership council resolution recognizes the connection between the fish and whales, and committed to accelerating the recovery of both iconic species.

[NPR] TUESDAY LAST WEEK S NEWS NOV06-14 BY TIM JOHNSON as The collapse of an Atlantic salmon net pen in August wasn t the first trouble the facility had. A report to state regulators says the collapse of the net pen off Cypress Island last August was preceded by a serious breakdown less than a month earlier in which nearly half of its anchor lines snapped. The Seattle Times reports the owner of the net pen, Cooke Aquaculture, has filed a chronology of the collapse that spewed more than 160,000 adult Atlantic salmon into Puget Sound. More than 100,000 of those fish are still unaccounted for. [Associated Press] The Wild Fish Conservancy files a citizen suit against Cooke Aquaculture with the goal of holding the company responsible for the negligent release of farmed Atlantic salmon into public waters. The escape event off of Cypress Island violated the federal Clean Water Act, the suit alleges, posing a dire threat to already imperiled wild fish populations, beloved marine mammal species, and the fragile Puget Sound ecosystem.

Anthony Horowitz s latest thriller is just the thing to take your mind off the weather and distressing news headlines. The tale begins in the London flat of Susan Ryeland, longtime editor of the Atticus Pund detective novels. She s just received the manuscript of Magpie Murders, Alan Conway s latest, and though she s never cared for the difficult author, she s always been a fan of his books. But she begins with a warning: This book cost her her job, many friends, even her home. Reader, beware! Magpie Murders is a book within a book, and it works on both levels. First, you get the manuscript, in its entirety, which follows Atticus Pund s investigation of the murder of Mary Blakiston. Mary, a cranky village busybody, was found dead at the foot of the stairs of Pye Hall, the local manor house. In typical whodunit fashion, we meet a cast of suspects, each with their motive for wanting Mary dead. There s Blakiston s son Robert, who loudly argued with his mother just days before her demise. Or Dr. Emilia Redwing, who discovered the body. And don t overlook the Reverend Robin Osborne and his wife Henrietta, who were on holiday when Mary Blakiston died but have mysterious latenight doings in the woods of the Dingle Dell. It s not until a second murder occurs in sleepy Saxby-on-Avon that Pund takes the case in earnest. Despite a recent terminal diagnosis of his own, Pund agrees to help his colleague Inspector Chubb investigate the death of Sir Magnus Pye, beheaded with a sword from an antique suit of armor. If this seems like familiar territory, it is. GET IT HOW: The options for enjoying Magpie Murders are plentiful: it s available from the Whatcom County Library System and Bellingham Public Library as a book, large print book, audiobook on CD, Playaway, ebook, and downloadable audiobook. Visit to place a hold on a copy, or www. bellinghampublic library.org if you live within the city limits of Bellingham. MORE: Don t miss Horowitz s other novels: The House of Silk and Moriarty (both based on Sherlock Holmes), as well as the TV series Midsomer Murders and Foyle s War. All can be found at your library. Author Alan Conway (and by extension, Anthony Horowitz) clearly draws from the tradition of Dame Agatha Christie, less the racial slurs and antisemitism that marred Christie s beloved bestsellers. There are red herrings, British manners, and even recurring nursery rhyme themes to move the plot along. But Magpie Murders really gets interesting when Susan Ryeland arrives at the end of the manuscript only to discover the ending is missing. Two days later, Alan Conway is dead. And Susan has a real-life mystery on her hands. Did Alan suspect that someone was out to get him? Did he insert clues into his last manuscript? What happened to the final pages? Horowitz keeps the pacing taut, the clues clever, and the twists surprising. Readers who enjoy playing armchair detective will not be disappointed. Christine Perkins is the Executive Director of the Whatcom County Library System. She s read all 66 Agatha Christie mysteries (available at your library) and looks forward to watching Murder on the Orient Express on the big screen.

I know this because during a gnarly windstorm in mid-october, the stately maple that has been gracing the second lot of my front yard since long before I moved to Bellingham s York neighborhood in the winter of 2000 succumbed to the elements. I was vacuuming the basement when the tree attacked the roof, but I still heard the reverberating boom. As I rushed upstairs, I took note of a jagged branch hanging from the side of the house and the furnace chimney lying in pieces on the ground. I opened the front door just in time to see more limbs breaking free from the trunk. In the blink of an eye, the yard was full of leaves and long lengths of wood as was part of my next-door neighbor s yard, the sidewalk and the street. Phone lines were compromised, the garden gate was obliterated, and an ornamental cherry tree and lilac bush were buried beneath the debris. The destruction was breathtaking, but in the hours and days following the Big Blowdown of 2017 I d come to see that things could ve been much, much worse. In fact, I d eventually feel thankful. Above all, I was thankful that no humans were injured, and that my 117-year-old Victorian wasn t obliterated (although it s going to need some roofing work, among other things). I was also grateful that no vehicles were damaged, our chickens were safe, and we didn t lose power. Among the numerous blessings I m counting as Thanksgiving nears is that the accident brought me closer to the community from the neighbors who called the authorities to report the damage, to those who stopped by to tell me stories about how the iconic tree impacted their lives, to the woodworker who requested a chunk of the maple to craft a bowl for us. When Public Works came to clear the woody debris from the street and sidewalk, two of the knuckles they carted away weighed in at 9,000 pounds. They were likely so heavy because they were waterlogged; the tree that had survived the Depression had grown in such a way that the crotch of the maple held rainwater, rotting the trunk from the inside out. If you have a seemingly healthy tree near your house, keep an eye on it. If a limb breaks, check it for brown or black colors in the center, indicating rot. Have a certified arborist give it a once-over, and make sure it s pruned correctly. Check for mushrooms on the trunk or at the base of the tree, as they can also indicate decay. The contractor who ll be helping restore the parts of the domicile that were damaged told me that he s seen a house ripped in half by a fir tree falling on it. I m thankful every day that I escaped this fate, and I want you to avoid it, too.

15 BY AMY KEPFERLE Alps Alert GETTING IN ON THE ACT stage THEATER DANCE PROFILES ATTEND WHAT: Sound of Music Sing-A-Long WHEN: 1pm Sun., Nov. 19 WHERE: Lincoln Theatre, Mount Vernon COST: $15-$20 INFO: www. lincolntheatre.org LAST WEEK, my officemate and I spent a few minutes of our deadline countdown belting out verses from My Favorite Things. It may not have been the appropriate time or place to croon about raindrops on roses and whiskers on kittens or bright copper kettles and warm woolen mittens, but once we started singing the hit from The Sound of Music, it was difficult to stop. Truth be told, I could ve sung the entire canon from the 1965 Academy Award-winning musical starring a dewy-eyed Julie Andrews and stern-to-soulful Christopher Plummer. I ve seen the film approximately 1,000 times, went on a themed tour when I visited Salzburg in my late teens, and have spent many Christmases with the movie playing in the background while the feast was being prepared. I ve even gotten in on the act. A couple of summers ago, I attended a Sound of Music Singalong at the multiplex with a couple of theatrically minded gal-pals who were equally enamored of the story about a wannabee nun in Austria who falls in love with a widowed naval officer after signing up to be a governess to his seven children. Along the way, the new family heals their various psychic wounds through the power of music, escapes the Nazi takeover of their beloved homeland and sings a whole lot of memorable songs. Being a part of the action was a liberating experience. Instead of having to bite our tongues during songs such as Maria, I Have Confidence, Climb Ev ry Mountain, The Lonely Goatherd, and Edelweiss, we were able to express ourselves both loudly and dramatically. In case we missed a phrase, subtitles were provided to get us back on track. At the annual pre- Thanksgiving Sing-A- Long Sound of Music taking place Sun., Nov. 19 at Mount Vernon s Lincoln Theatre, the event moves the audience interaction a step further. In addition to providing the subtitles during the screening not that you ll need them hosts Don Wick and Dave Cross will also lead participants through a vocal warmup and give a comprehensive guide to the accompanying actions and use of an interactive fun pack that will be provided to all ticket-holders. Additionally, costumes are encouraged, as is dancing in aisles. At past iterations of the cinematic collaboration with the Children s Museum of Skagit County, attendees have dressed up as anything and everything represented in the film, whether it s Mother Abbess, Liesl, a goat herder, Alps or Captain Von Trapp. An ensuing costume parade has been known to send audiences into a frenzy, and those who are liberated from the typical constraints of attending a movie make the most of their time in the spotlight, whether they re singing about a few of their favorite things or yodeling their hearts out.

For those on the lookout for options about what to get art-lovers in their lives, read on for details about a few events taking place this coming weekend that will help fulfill that goal. At the annual FishBoy Holiday Show taking place Sat., Nov. 18 at painter RR Clark s studio and home in the Sunnyland neighborhood, a couple of things are to be expected. The first is that the amount of color you ll be confronted with when you walk through the door is sure to soothe any seasonal chill. The second item to take note of is that it will be difficult to depart. Those of age will inevitably be offered a glass of wine, and before you know it, an hour will have passed and the genial host will have filled you in about where his nickname comes from, the latest pieces of reclaimed wood he scored, and how the painting you re interested in originated. Another warning: you may fall in love with an image of a yellow bird sitting on a blue dog, and decide you want to keep it for yourself. If that s the case, you have permission to purchase it, then have someone else wrap it up and stick it under the tree. When: 2-9pm Sat., Nov. 18 Where: 617 Virginia St. Info: That same day, the 27th annual Small Works Show, Honey, I Shrunk the Art, will open with a party and potluck at Camano Island s Matzke Fine Art Gallery & Sculpture Park. The seasonal exhibit and sale comes with a tagline of great art at a shrunken price, meaning that the diminutive pieces by the 40 artists working in glass, ceram- ics, sculpture and painting are a lot more affordable than usual, and are perfect for the gift-giving season. Arrive a little early to stroll the grounds and peruse the outdoor sculptures located throughout the 10-acre venue. The show and sale takes place weekends through Jan. 14, so if you can t make it today, you still have time to get in on the artistic action. When: 4-9pm Sat., Nov. 18. Where: 2345 Blanche Way, Camano Island Info: Those who wend their way to the second weekend of the Rexville Grange Holiday Art Show will be treated to scenic scenes in a variety of manners whether it s via witnessing a field full of trumpeter swans making themselves at home in the Skagit Valley fields on the drive to the venue, or in the canny combination of paintings, pottery, glass art, photography, jewelry, fine crafts, weaving, woodwork and more to be found in the largest grange hall in Washington state. With something for just about everyone on your nice list whether it s one-of-a-kind scarves, fine soaps, fused glass, jewelry, oil paintings of the verdant valley, stained glass art with a local focus or fine art photography we dare you to leave empty-handed. When: 10am-5pm Sat.-Sun., Nov Where: Rexville Grange Rd.

This year, I saw my first Christmas display the day after Halloween. I walked into a store in downtown Bellingham expecting to see marked-down candy and costumes and instead walked smack into Kris Kringle. I m unabashedly infected with the spirit of the season every year, but even so, I was like, Go home, Santa. It s November 1. No one wants to see your bowl full of jelly just yet. Which explains why I ve spent the past few weeks thinking Thanksgiving was just around the corner. That surprise early snowfall did not help clear up my calendar confusion. Imagine my surprise when I realized we still have some musical miles to go before we sleep off our turkey dinners and wake up to haul out the holly. The Mount Baker Theatre is always a hotbed of holiday action, but before the Nutcrackers get cracking, Charlie Brown trims his sad tree, and Christmas Town can be saved, some nontraditional musical fare must first be served. Nontraditional is certainly a good word to describe pianist, composer and vocalist Michael Kaeshammer. He was born in Germany, lives in Canada and plays rollicking boogie-woogie music inspired by New Orleans. He s been described as technically brilliant, a charismatic virtuoso and a great piano man, but he refers to himself as just a piano player. He s not being self-effacing after 20 years and a couple of Juno Awards, he has no need to downplay his skills but says that he finds labels to be limiting. Generally, when an artist says that it s because they don t want the audience to pigeonhole them. For Kaeshammer, it s more of an internal guide, a reminder not to limit himself, and to follow his curiosity and creativity and go where the music takes him. Kaeshammer s freewheeling spirit extends to his live performances as well. With two decades spent as a professional musician and a penchant for dabbling in whatever genre or musical influence that strikes his fancy, his repertoire is vast. When combined with his preference for playing sans set list, his concerts exhibit the same freedom he brings to all his endeavors. Plus, at one point in his life, he was ATTEND WHO: Michael Kaeshammer WHEN: 7:30pm Sat., Nov. 18 COST: $ $ WHO: Whatcom Symphony Orchestra w/amit Peled WHEN: 3pm Sun., Nov. 19 COST: $15-$49 WHERE: Mount Baker Theatre, 104 N. Commercial St. INFO: theatre.com performing in Reno as an amateur magician (my hand to Wikipedia, I swear this is true), so he could very well pull a rabbit from his hat at any moment. Also falling into the vein of nontraditional music is the Whatcom Symphony Orchestra s Harmony from Discord series, which showcases works created in the face of oppression, emphasizing the power of music to transcend even the darkest of human experience. The venerable arts organization does not shy away from exploring weighty topics with their series, and their Sun., Nov. 19 concert features the talents of cello player Amit Peled, who will assist the symphony in interpreting a piece by Sharon Farber that was inspired by the story of Holocaust survivor Curt Lowens, who saved the lives of 150 Jewish children during World War II. That will be followed by Symphony No. 3 in E-flat major, Op. 55, which is far more well known by its much shorter name, Beethoven s Heroic. After that, comes Thanksgiving (finally), ushering in a program of seasonal delights at the Mount Baker Theatre. But there s plenty of music on the schedule before then to help stave off the Christmas creep. rumor has it TO KNOW WILD Buffalo owner Craig Jewell is to know a man who is constantly up to something. These things that he gets up to are never bad and are nearly always in pursuit of fun, which means that once you have him in your life, you become witness to his ongoing parade of delightful surprises. It also means that when you wake up from a text from him that just says, I DID IT, whatever he s done could be almost anything. I actually believe he could tell me he d found a unicorn, befriended it, learned its magical ways and can now travel through time and dimensions and I d be all, Sounds about right. In this case, the thing that he did was just shy of that. He booked George Clinton and Parliament Funkadelic for a March 25 BY CAREY ROSS show at the Wild Buffalo. Don t ask me how it happened. All I know is it took six months and probably just shy of eleventy jillion pleading s from Craig and possibly some of that unicorn magic I mentioned. If you re wondering to yourself whether this is the biggest show Craig has ever booked during his decade with the Wild Buffalo, the answer is a resounding hell yes. If you re wondering whether tickets will be pricier than your average cover charge, the answer is duh, but $65 to see Parliament at a tiny venue (relative to the band s legendary status) like the Wild Buffalo is the deal of the century, as far as I m concerned. If you re wondering when tickets will go on sale, the answer is last week and they re selling exactly as fast as you d think. If you think I m dying to know what s in George Clinton s rider, you d be absolutely correct. Now that we ve dispensed with all the things you re wondering about re: Craig Jewell, George Clinton and unicorn magic, I should probably mention that many, many shows will happen at the Wild Buffalo between now and March 25, and you should probably go to at least all of those too. When he s not playing in Beats Antique, David Satori teams up with two other Bay Area musicians to play in Dirtwire, a band that sounds like it could score a season of Westworld while making a stop in Ennio Morricone s neighborhood on the way. When he s not running sound at the Wild Buffalo, Rich Canut can often be found doing the same while on tour with Beats Antique. See Dirtwire when they play Nov. 16 at the Wild Buffalo and you can watch David and Rich have a tender reunion, if you re into that kind of thing. If that doesn t flip your proverbial pancakes, there s always Thunderpussy (Nov. 25), Jai Wolf (Nov. 30, sold out), Tha Dogg Pound (Dec. 1), MarchFourth Marching Band (Dec. 31), and so much more.

22 CASCADIA WEEKLY # DO IT 2 MAIL 4 VIEWS 6 CURRENTS 8 WORDS 12 GET OUT 14 STAGE 15 ART 16 MUSIC 18 FILM 22 B-BOARD 24 FOOD REVIEWED BY PETER RAINER Loving Vincent ART IMITATES ART film MOVIE REVIEWS FILM SHORTS LOVING VINCENT is billed as the world s first fully painted feature film, and I have no reason to doubt the claim. The Vincent in the title of this very strange movie is the great Dutch artist Vincent van Gogh, and you would think he already had more than his share of biopics. The most famous, of course, is Vincente Minnelli s very fine Lust for Life, starring Kirk Douglas in one of his best seething performances. Maurice Pialat s Van Gogh has its adherents, as does Paul Cox s Vincent, which makes great use of the painter s canvases and letters to his brother and benefactor Theo. There s also Akira Kurosawa s Dreams, featuring a segment with Martin Scorsese as Van Gogh still my favorite piece of miscasting in all of cinema. Best, perhaps, is Robert Altman s rarely seen Vincent & Theo, starring Tim Roth as Van Gogh, one of the very few movies that demonstrates, without any romanticizing, the ferment that can underlie great artistry. It has some of the same tumultuous emotionality as Van Gogh s paintings. Loving Vincent, co-directed by Hugh Welchman and Polish animator Dorota Kobiela, is framed as a kind of Citizen Kane-style detective story focusing on Van Gogh s frenzied final months in Auvers-sur-Oise, France, where, in 1890, he fatally shot himself. (The film s title is derived from Van Gogh s signoffs to his beloved brother in his letters Your loving Vincent. ) Before we get into the substance of the film, attention must be paid to how its imagery came to be. (In a sense, style and substance in this movie are synonymous.) I always feel a little guilty about criticizing animated features because the painstaking work that goes into creating even a bad animated movie is so often staggering. Loving Vincent took seven years to complete and involved 125 artists hand-painting some 65,000 frames of film. About 130 of Van Gogh s paintings are dynamically reproduced in the flow of images using this method, in which everything is first filmed as live-action and then rotoscoped with animation. The scenario, if not the imagery, is fairly straightforward. Upon hearing the news of Vincent s death, Armand Roulin (voiced by Douglas Booth), at the request of his postmaster father, Joseph (Chris O Dowd), is tasked with delivering the last letter from Vincent (the Polish theater actor Robert Gulaczyk) to Theo. Armand reluc- Loving Vincent took seven years to complete and involved 125 artists handpainting some 65,000 frames of film tantly complies, only to discover that Theo, too, has died. He decides to stay in Auvers-sur-Oise and uncover what really happened to Van Gogh in the end. (Armand also acts as the film s narrator.) In the course of his detective work, he encounters various villagers who all seem to have their own theories about the artist s demise. Some even believe he was murdered. (This theory was actually put forth, without any definitive proof, in a celebrated recent biography by Gregory White Smith and Steven Naifeh.) As the townspeople take turns offering up their version of events, we recognize some of their faces from Van Gogh s famous portraits, including Marguerite Gachet (Saoirse Ronan) and her father, Dr. Paul Gachet (Jerome Flynn), who treated Van Gogh in his last days. The filmmakers resort to multiple flashbacks of Van Gogh s life, which, unlike the present-day imagery, are exclusively in black and white a mistake, I think, because the grayed-out effect drags down the look of the entire film, which is otherwise almost riotous with color. But what exactly are we getting with this vast swirl of colorations, these 65,000 frames of rotoscoped reproductions? It s kind of kicky to pick out all the paintings as the story ensues: The Night Café, Wheatfield with Crows, Starry Night, and many others. But in the end, we are viewing, at best, deft and at worst, kitschy renderings of great paintings. The reproductions can t possibly match the originals emotional fervor. How could they? There s another problem here, which is especially typical of movies about great, tortured artists. The filmmakers want us to understand Van Gogh s mind through his work, and while this approach certainly has its pop psych fascinations, it s ultimately too glib. The correlation between how an artist lives his life, and the work he produces in that life, is too complicated, perhaps too unknowable, for such one-to-one connections. Still, the fact that this movie, with its 65,000 painted frames, was even attempted, is daunting. It s the kind of folly that demands a measure of respect, for the effort, if not altogether for the result.

Register at , x2 BY ROB BREZSNY FREE WILL ASTROLOGY ARIES (March 21-April 19): "Many people go fishing all their lives without knowing that it is not fish they are after," observed Henry David Thoreau. The spirit of Thoreau's observation is true about every one of us to some extent. From time to time, we all try to satisfy our desires in the wrong location, with the wrong tools, and with the wrong people. But I'm happy to announce that his epigram is less true for you now than it has ever been. In the coming months, you will have an unusually good chance to know exactly what you want, be in the right place at the right time to get it, and still want it after you get it. And it all starts now. TAURUS (April 20-May 20): I predict that during the next 10 months, you will generate personal power and good fortune as you ripen your skills at creating interesting forms of intimacy. Get started! Here are some tips to keep in mind. 1. All relationships have problems. Every single one, no exceptions! So you should cultivate relationships that bring you useful and educational problems. 2. Be very clear about the qualities you do and don't want at the core of your most important alliances. 3. Were there past events that still obstruct you from weaving the kind of togetherness that's really good for you? Use your imagination to put those events behind you forever. GEMINI (May 21-June 20): You may be entertaining an internal dialog that sounds something like this: "I need a clear yes or a definitive no...a tender revelation or a radical revolution...a lesson in love or a cleansing sex marathon but I'm not sure which! Should I descend or ascend? Plunge deeper down, all the way to the bottom? Or zip higher up, in a heedless flight into the wide open spaces? Would I be happier in the poignant embrace of an intense commitment or in the wild frontier where none of the old rules can follow me? I can't decide! I don't know which part of my mind I should trust!" If you do hear those thoughts in your brain, Gemini, here's my advice: There's no rush to decide. What's healthiest for your soul is to bask in the uncertainty for a while. CANCER (June 21-July 22): According to storyteller Michael Meade, ancient Celtic culture believed that "a person was born through three forces: the coming together of the mother and father, an ancestral spirit's wish to be reborn, and the involvement of a god or goddess." Even if you don't think that's literally true, the coming weeks will be a favorable time to have fun fantasizing it is. That's because you're in a phase when contemplating your origins can invigorate your spiritual health and attract good fortune into your life. So start with the Celtic theory, and go on from there. Which of your ancestors may have sought to live again through you? Which deity might have had a vested interest in you being born? What did you come to this earth to accomplish? Which of your innate potentials have you yet to fully develop, and what can you do to further develop them? LEO (July 23-Aug. 22): I predict that starting today and during the next 10 months, you will learn more about treating yourself kindly and making yourself happy than you have in years. You will mostly steer clear of the mindset that regards life as a numbing struggle for mere survival. You will regularly dream up creative ideas about how to have more fun while attending to the mundane tasks in your daily rhythm. Here's the question I hope you will ask yourself every morning for the next 299 days: "How can I love myself wth devotion and ingenuity?" VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22): This may be the most miscellaneous horoscope I've ever created for you. That's apropos, given the fact that you're a multifaceted quick-change artist these days. Here's your sweet mess of oracles. 1. If the triumph you seek isn't humbling, it's not the right triumph. 2. You may have an odd impulse to reclaim or recoup something that you have not in fact lost. 3. Before transmutation is possible, you must pay a debt. 4. Don't be held captive by your beliefs. 5. If you're given a choice between profane and sacred love, choose sacred. LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 22): The next 10 months will be an ideal time to revise and revamp your approach to education. To take maximum advantage of the potentials, create a master plan to get the training and knowledge you'll need to thrive for years to come. At first, it may be a challenge to acknowledge that you have a lot more to learn. The comfort-loving part of your nature may be resistant to contemplating the hard work it will require to expand your worldview and enhance your skills. But once you get started, you'll quickly find the process becoming easier and more pleasurable. SCORPIO (Oct. 23-Nov. 21): "Everything that can be invented has been invented." - Charles H. Duell, Director of the U.S. Patent Office, "Heavierthan-air flying machines are impossible." - Lord Kelvin, President, Royal Society, "All the music that can be written has already been written. We're just repeating the past." - 19th-century composer Tschaikovsky. "Video won't be able to hold on to any market it captures after the first six months. People will soon get tired of staring at a box every night." - filmmaker Darryl F. Zanuck, commenting on television in I hope I've provided enough evidence to convince you to be faithful to your innovative ideas, Scorpio. Don't let skeptics or conventional thinkers waylay you. SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21): Of all the signs in the zodiac, you Sagittarians are most likely to buy a lottery ticket that has the winning numbers. But you're also more likely than everyone else to throw the ticket in a drawer and forget about it, or else leave it in your jeans when you do the laundry, rendering the ticket unreadable. Please don't be like that in the coming weeks. Make sure you do what's necessary to fully cash in on the good fortune that life will be making available. CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19): In the game of basketball, if a player is fouled by a member of the opposing team, he is given a "free throw." While standing 15 feet away, he takes a leisurely shot at the basket without having to deal with any defenders. Studies show that a player is most likely to succeed at this task if he shoots the ball underhanded. Yet virtually no professionals ever do this. Why? Because it doesn't look cool. Everyone opts to shoot free throws overhand, even though it's not as effective a technique. Weird! Let's invoke this as a metaphor for your life in the coming weeks, Capricorn. In my astrological opinion, you'll be more likely to accomplish good and useful things if you're willing to look uncool. AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18): In 1991, Aquarius rock star Axl Rose recorded the song "November Rain" with his band Guns N' Roses. It had taken him eight years to compose it. Before it was finally ready for prime time, he had to whittle it down from an 18-minute-long epic to a more succinct nine-minute ballad. I see the coming weeks as a time when you should strive to complete work on your personal equivalent of Axl's opus. PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20): Thomas Edison was a prolific inventor whose work led to the creation of electric lights, recorded music, movies, and much more. When he was 49 years old, he met Henry Ford, a younger innovator who was at the beginning of his illustrious career. Ford told Edison about his hopes to develop and manufacture low-cost automobiles, and the older man responded with an emphatic endorsement. Ford later said this was the first time anyone had given him any encouragement. Edison's approval "was worth worlds" to him. I predict, Pisces, that you will receive comparable inspiration from a mentor or guide or teacher in the next nine months. Be on the lookout for that person.

27 BY AMY ALKON THE SCIENCE ADVICE GODDESS REIGN OF TERRIER I know humans are typically your subject, but this is a relationship question, so I hope you ll consider answering it. I have a new puppy (an 8-pound terrier mutt). I eventually want her to sleep in bed with me. However, she s not toilet-trained yet, so I crate her at night in the laundry room (in a small dog cage). She cries all night. It s heartbreaking. Please help! Sleepless In Dogtown We call dogs man s best friend and treat them just like our human best friends if at 11 p.m. you say to your BFF, Wow wouldja look at the time, gently remove her beer from her hand, and usher her to her cage in your laundry room. Crate training, recommended by vets, breeders, and the American Kennel Club, involves confining a dog to a den a cage or gated-off area with her bed and her favorite toys to dismember. However, the crate is not supposed to be used for punishment as a sort of Doggy San Quentin but, say, for times you can t watch her to keep her from using the $3,000 leather couch as a chew toy or the antique Persian rug as an opulently colored hand-knotted toilet. The problem you re experiencing in crating your dog at night comes out of doggy-human coevolution. Anthrozoologist John W.S. Bradshaw explains that over generations, we humans bred dogs to be emotionally dependent on us. Not surprisingly, dogs miss their owners, sometimes desperately, when they are separated from them and other dogs don t seem to fill the emotional void. In one of Bradshaw s studies of 40 Labrador retrievers and border collies well over 50 percent of the Labs and almost half of the collies showed some kind of separation distress when left alone. Fortunately, puppies can be trained to understand that your picking up your car keys isn t human-ese for Goodbye forever! Bradshaw s advice in Dog Sense : Pick up keys, go to door, praise dog. Next: Pick up keys. Go out door. Come right back in. Praise dog. Next: Go out for increasingly longer intervals and go back a stage (timewise) if the dog shows anxiety. And good news for you: You probably don t have to spoon with your dog to keep her from feeling separation distress at night. My tiny Chinese crested now sleeps (uh, snores like a cirrhotic old wino) on my pillow, resting her tiny snout on my neck. However, back before she had her bathroom business under control, I went through the crying-at-night-in-the-crate thing (actually a gated alcove by my office). I felt like the second coming of Cruella de Vil. Then I remembered something about dogs: They have a sense of smell on the level of superhero powers. Maybe my dog didn t have to be in bed; maybe near bed would do. I snagged a big see-through plastic container (maybe 4 feet long and 3 feet high) that my neighbors were tossing out. At bedtime, I put it next to my bed and put my dog in it with her bed and a pee pad. She turned around three times, curled up, and went to sleep after giving me a look I m pretty sure said, Hey, next time you re gonna throw me in the hole, gimme some notice, and I ll menace the mailman and chase the neighbors bratty children with a sharpened Nylabone. FUR WHEELIN I keep seeing men pushing dogs in baby strollers and carrying dogs as women do. What's going on? An epidemic of sissified men? If I ever did this, I d hope my family would have me committed. Disturbed Release the hounds! does lose some of its punch when it s followed by as soon as you can unzip them from their polka-dot stroller. Thankfully, the Centers for Disease Control lists no reports of an outbreak of Pomeranians poking their little heads out of man purses. However, you re right; dog strollers are increasingly becoming a thing. As for why this is, think Field of Dreams : If you build it and sell it at Petco, people will buy it so they won t have to leave their old, tired, and/or disabled doggy home alone. As for what pushing a doggybuggy says about a man, anthropologists and zoologists would call this a costly signal. This is an extravagant or risky trait or behavior that comes with a substantial price which suggests that the quality being displayed is for real. An example of this is conspicuous waste signaling vast wealth by using $100 bills as birdcage liners. Accordingly, it takes a man with masculinity to burn to not fear putting off all those women who previously announced to their friends, We want sensitive men! though not, you know, put their Shih Tzu in a baby stroller sensitive. 2017, Amy Alkon, all rights reserved.

At Camber, one of the newest additions to Bellingham s food and coffee scene, it s obvious from the get-go that the three partners at its helm are nothing short of brilliant. The food is exceptional, the atmosphere is warm, bright and friendly, the coffee is utterly divine and the space itself is nothing short of wow. David Yake and his partners Andrew Bowman and Todd Elliott took the former location of the Comics Place at the intersection of Holly and Bay streets and transformed the 1927-era space into an airy, open, modern, inviting, light-filled sanctuary where you can eat a healthy breakfast, lunch or dinner while drinking the kind of latte you almost can t bear to put down (yes, it s that delicious). The coffee selection changes daily, but the day we sat down for lunch the menu offered Guatemala Santa Isabel, Congo Kivu decaf, and Ethiopia Borona Korie. Also on offer is a selection of boutique teas, beers you won t find elsewhere, mimosas, a wine list and even a selection of milkshakes. We wanted Camber to be welcoming to different kinds of guests, accommodating business meetings, laptop work, date night or a friendly get-together, Yake says. Ours is a funny model because we re equal parts coffee shop and restaurant. We just want to be known for doing good things and serving delicious food and drink any hour of the day. I m pleased to report that Yake and his team are meeting and exceeding their goal. If the drinks menu doesn t stun you into submission, the food selections certainly will. At lunchtime we placed a special order of one of the breakfast staples, a Breakfast Salad ($14) comprised of greens, salmon, hardboiled eggs, goat cheese, cucumber ribbons, popped quinoa and a delicate almond-milk dressing. It was wholesome, healthy, delicious and enduring as this alone fueled me right through to dinner. We also tried the curried butternut squash soup ($8), a generous bowl of zesty orange decorated with coconut cream, sesame oil and cilantro. It was the kind of soup that warms your soul and offers a perfect solution to days when rain pelts Bellingham relentlessly. We d heard the Veggie Sandwich ($13) was remarkable, and it lived up to its reputation. Served EAT WHAT: Camber WHERE: 221 W. Holly St. WHEN: 7am-10pm Mon.-Fri., 8am- 10pm Sat.-Sun. INFO: coffee.com on a Bread Farm bun, it delivered roasted yam, garlic chard, herbed chevre, crispy onions and sprouts. The combination of veggies works perfectly. Other tempting items on the lunch and dinner menu include the roasted Brussels sprouts ($7) and the half-roasted chicken ($22), which I plan on going back for. The desserts also looked irresistible particularly the Salt and Smoke Vahlrona Cremeux ($8) and the Affogato ($6). Yake explained that while none of the partners originally comes from Bellingham, every member of the trio now resides in the city. Additionally, all three are serious coffee connoisseurs who met while working at Tony s Coffee. Yake recalls how Camber began as a wholesale coffee roaster in We started sending samples of our roasted coffee out to some of the most wellrespected cafes in the country and immediately had a good following on the wholesale side, he says. That following continues, and as it does this talented trio has focused on bringing a new coffee shop and eatery to the city that is filled with ambience, light, friendliness and really good food.
