The Totem Pole - Five Years Later

by Kate Madson

On June 15th, 1995, Port Ludlow residents and Pope Resources employees joined Native American artists to celebrate the raising of a newly-carved totem pole on Burner Point. Who decided to have the pole created? What influenced its site and imagery? Who owns it and what is its future? Within this issue:

History Tony Puma, construction project manager for the Heron Beach Inn, says he conceived the idea of a totem pole on Burner Point and persuaded George Folquet, then-CEO of Pope Resources, of the plan's benefits. Alternatives were proposed, such as a gazebo and fire pit, but Folquet, along with Paul Schell, whose firm then co-owned the inn, agreed on a pole. Pope Resources commissioned the artwork to honor Native Americans, Pope and Talbot's history in the community and Port Ludlow residents themselves - and to provide a visual highlight for the inn. With a budget of $125,000, the pole was a significant investment. Well-known carver David Boxley and his assistants received about half the amount. Approximately $14,000 went to purchase the red cedar log from Pacific Western Timbers, owned by Peter and John Wagner, sons of Port Ludlow residents Ted and Audrey Wagner. The 720-year-old log blew down on the Olympic Peninsula in 1993, and was chosen by the carver from several available. The balance of the money went for the pole's preparation, its structural support (30-foot steel pilings are sunk into 7000 pounds of concrete) and the raising ceremonies. Site and Symbolism The Port Ludlow region was once home to the Coast Salish people. They traditionally did not build totem poles, but rather carved single figures to adorn graves or stand along a shoreline to attract the attention of seafaring neighbors. Native American indications have been noted at the mouth to Port Ludlow Creek, where a midden - or ancient trash site - has been detected. Burner Point, on the other hand, did not exist when the native population lived here. That land is composed of fill, placed by white settlers to support a sawdust burner for Pope and Talbot mill waste. Carver David Boxley feels the pole's location is a good one - prominent and once nativeoccupied. He emphasized that the pole had been designed specifically for the site, that its elements symbolized the history of its place from pre-contact nature and the S'Klallam people (the eagle and bear) to Pope and Talbot themselves, through logging and residential construction (the woodsman and beaver) to figures representing the contemporary community. Boxley is of the Tsimshian people of British Columbia and Alaska, and conveyed Port Ludlow's history through his native tradition. He added that typically poles faced the water, which were the community's roads. Even the rare poles carved in-the-round were historically placed with their major elements facing the river or sea, and lesser carving on the reverse. In the case of the Port Ludlow pole, it was decided that it should face the land. Log to Art The initial cuts to the log were made at a sawmill in Gorst, outside of Bremerton. Boxley

Drainage District Special Election approved. See story on page 5.

Port Ludlow Voice noted that trees rot from the inside out, and one side of a tree usually has received more sun and has more knots that hinder carving. So in order to increase the pole's life and ease the artisans' work, its back and center were removed with an immense bandsaw and a chainsaw. A seven-foot crack, which probably happened when the tree fell, was expertly mortised with a large, butterfly-shaped, glued block. The balance of the carving took two-and-a-half months, and was done in a tarp-covered shelter a few hundred yards from the pole's present site. Wind and rain buffeted it in April, and whales swam by in May. Residents followed the progress, and brought cookies and comments. Over time the delicacy of tools increased - from chainsaw to shaping hammer and chisel, to curving adz to finishing knife. Apprentices helped, along with friends and family members as the deadline neared. Sketched pencil lines became elegant curves highlighted with paint. According to Boxley, the pole allowed him to create art, to teach friends, to pass on a tradition to his son and to visitors, and most of all to demonstrate that his culture is a living tradition.

Page 2 and officers and numerous Port Ludlow residents, went back to the inn for smoked salmon, Indian bread and other traditional foods. Everyone received screen prints of a fish created by David Boxley's son as well as cedar tree seedlings for planting. A 20-plus minute video exists, with narration by the carver, which documents the pole's creation from the mill to the final ceremony. This author borrowed a copy from Olympic Property Group, and perhaps copies or an opportunity for wider viewing could be made.

The pole was carved from top to bottom. Pat Kramer, author of the book Totem Poles, writes that contrary to the figure of speech "the lowest figures (on a totem pole) are often considered the most important. Since they are at eye-level to observers they are carved with great attention to detail....Higher-up figures are more representational and, if anything, slightly less important." According to Boxley, at least one of the six "low men on the totem pole" represents an actual person. Tony Puma, who was frequently on-site, is the mustached man with the cell phone. Ceremony and Tradition Although poles were traditionally erected by hand, the Port Ludlow pole was raised by crane. On June 14th, the day before formal ceremonies, artisans added the slender, painted wings to the top figure, drums were beaten and an actual bald eagle flew over Burner Point. For those present, but especially Boxley, who comes from the eagle clan, this was a favorable sign.

Maintenance and Ownership Although red cedar lasts longer than any other wood, carved totems will rot sooner if not maintained. While surface cracks are inevitable in any location, Burner Point's winds are challenging. Already a skim coat of green lays over much of the pole's features and bird dung stains the upper elements with white. Painted highlights have faded. Asked what could be done, Boxley described the cleaning process. Working from top to bottom, the pole is wire-brushed to remove debris and stains, then washed. Paint is touched up as needed, then waterseal is reapplied over the entire surface. Based on a 30-foot pole he recently cleaned, Boxley estimates this 40-foot pole would take close to three days Who will at $125 an hour, or $1000 a day. This covers participate his work as well as that of assistants, but not in its long-term materials such as paint or sealant. The client care? must provide a means to access the pole, such as scaffolding or a cherry picker. The totem pole is on land owned by the Ludlow Bay Village Master Association, which is currently comprised of the marina, the inn, the Harbormaster and the townhomes. While townhome residents pay dues, the common areas are managed by OPG. According to Greg McCarry, OPG has not considered plans for pole maintenance. The pole is many things: property of the developer, a gift to the community, an accessible work of art, an enhancement to the inn, a reminder of Native American heritage. Who will participate in its long-term care?

The next day the totem was dedicated with dances, speeches and songs. Guests, who included Native Americans from several tribes, Pope Resources board members

Page 3 Public Comment Sought on Marina Expansion Plan As a follow-up to public presentations and postings, Jon Rose repeated OPG's intention to add 100 slips to the marina and asked for comments. He reiterated that while the proposed slips' configuration may change, all of them will be for permanent rather than guest moorage, for vessels 36' or greater and in water depths that do not require major dredging. Rose said that anything other than cosmetic alterations to land facilities must wait until resort planning decisions are made, since the latter affects the waterfront area. Permit applications for the alterations should be submitted this year, but backlogs in the involved agencies, especially the Corps. of Engineers, make it difficult to predict when construction might begin. Council Election Planning Underway Election Committee Chair Frank Siler reminded the audience that the Village Council's existing Articles and Bylaws were formulated to bring the Council on stream and to cover its first year of operation. The initial Board of Directors was charged with proposing modifications to cover future elections and operations of the Council. The Election Committee will bring its recommended changes in the Articles and Bylaws to the full Council so that a resolution can be passed to present these amended documents to the voting membership for ratification. Such ratification is required before another Council election can take place. Anyone that did not vote in the first election can become a voting member by filling out a simple form available at the Beach and Bay Clubs. Everyone who voted in the first election is already a voting member. Ballots and explanatory information will be mailed to all voting members in the near future. New County Staff and Old Sea Lions New Jefferson County Administrator Charles Saddler was introduced by Commissioner Glen Huntingford. Sadler told the audience that his role is to implement policy day-to-day by keeping the various County Departments on track, and that the elected officials define those policies. He welcomes input, and can be reached at 385-9158. During the public comment periods, audience members thanked the county for its recent right-of-way clean-up in Port Ludlow, and expressed gratitude to OPG for removing and disposing of a huge sea lion carcass which had washed up near the Beach Club.

Village Council Hears Resort Update

by Kate Madson

Over 100 residents listened as Olympic Property Group Vice President Jon Rose gave a progress report on the history, current status and future of OPG's development activity within the Master Planned Resort boundaries at the May 4th Village Council meeting. A copy of the full report was mailed to residents in early May, and Rose will return to the Thursday, June 1st 9:00 a.m. council meeting to answer additional questions. Rose spoke frankly of Port Ludlow's history, noting that when Pope Resources was created in 1995, a downward trend in developer/community relations had existed for a number of years. This period was marked by poor communications and little consultation with the community. The downward trend culminated in 1995 when a lawsuit was filed that resulted in the down zoning of Port Ludlow property. Subsequently, Pope Resources put much of its undeveloped property up for sale. He said change began with the appointment of CEO Gary Tucker who terminated a proposed sale of Port Ludlow properties to another developer, launched the Planning Forum to learn residents' goals and supported a more candid, collaborative partnership with the community. Rose listed ways by which OPG, in conjunction with the residents, had furthered owners' requests - for protection of the natural environment, improved hiking trails, a unified community organization and better communication. Turning to the present, he said passage of clear zoning regulations and an approved development agreement between the county and OPG (and any subsequent developer) had allowed OPG to finally turn its attention back to its non-residential properties. It will be several years at least until construction begins on a new resort. For now, a $275,000 "Hallmark Spruce-up" is underway to refurbish and enhance aspects of the Village Center, marina and golf course facilities while a financial partner is sought for the resort and long-term decisions made. Development Impact Monitoring Larry Smith, OPG Support Services Manager, reported that actual impacts of south-side residential construction since the predictions of the 1993 Environmental Impact Statement have been minimal. Of a projected 700 residential units, 113 have been built, and so far fewer students per household than expected have been "generated" and no monitored aquifer has shown a decline in water level or quality.

Port Ludlow North Bay Lot Owners Association

Board Meeting ­ May 11th, 2000 Having no committee reports, Michael Cahn opened the meeting to a discussion from the Board and floor on possible new objectives for the LOA this year. Dave Harris presented to the Board a list of issues that could have a unique impact on LOA members, including: · · · · · · · · · · · · · · · Village Council LMC 20-Year Plan Growth Management Plan Jefferson County Commissioners Water & Sewage rates and quality Surface Water Runoff District Shoreline Commission Requirements Marina Expansion Golf Course Expansion Parks, Trails and Recreation (maintenance, construction and location) Destination Resort Construction Construction on non-sewered lots New additions to the community CC&R's (Being unique to LOA, not LMC, should they be under LOA control?)

Belated LMC Election Results

Through a production error, the results of the recent LMC election were inadvertently omitted from the May issue of the Voice. Our apologies to all the fine people who will lead the LMC this next year. The Editors The newly elected trustees are Jim Brannaman, Kent Foreman, Stan Kadesh, Marie Lytal, Sharil Webber and Chuck Wright. The board elected the following officers: President: Vice President: Secretary: Treasurer: Jim Brannaman Jim Laker Marie Lytal Chuck Wright

Berglind and Edwards Departing

They're not going too far away, but we do want to wish long-time residents Ray and Barbara Berglind and Bob and Cathy Edwards a fond, if reluctant, farewell. Both couples were among the earliest homeowners in South Bay, and they will be sorely missed! We've booked the Great Room of the Bay Club for Thursday, June 22nd, 4:30-6:30 p.m. to give them a well-deserved farewell. All friends of the Berglinds and Edwards, both North and South Bay residents, are cordially invited to this event. Please join us! For further information regarding what to bring, call either Bev Rothenborg at 437-0505 or Yvonne Stowe at 437-2092. We look forward to seeing you at the party!

The general consensus from the Board and audience was the LOA needs to have additional responsibilities and involvement with the lot owners. It was also suggested we take over more social activities and possibly reactivate a welcome wagon committee. Two past LOA Presidents, Olly Gardner and Bob Herbst, gave valuable advice to the new Board and encouraged them to become actively and creatively involved with the lot owners. The Board will hold as many as three nighttime meetings during the year to inform members of issues important to our community, and will take steps to create new committees and activities for the LOA. Conrad Yunker advised he has discovered that cats are being trapped in North Bay and has seen evidence of the trapping. He indicated the traps are being set with cat food bait and then not checked for several days.

L O A Meeting Change

The board of directors re-affirmed the importance to represent the interests of the lot owners. To this end, the LOA will increase it's activities, including liaison to the LMC and to the PLVC. In addition, committees are being formed to increase social activities, youth activities, welcome wagon programs, and improved "North-South" relations. We need persons to serve on these committees. Please call Michael Cahn at 437-8223 to volunteer. The next LOA meeting will be Thursday, June 8th, 9:00 a.m. downstairs at the Beach Club. The agenda will be posted on the bulletin board at the Beach Club. Beginning in July, meetings will switch to evenings at 7:00 P.M. on the second week of the month.

Drainage District Election Approved

The Jefferson County Board of County Commissioners met on May 16th at the Beach Club in what could be described as one of the shortest public meetings on record. The purpose of the meeting was to provide a public forum on the issue of creating a Drainage District for the North Bay. A small but enthusiastic crowd was on hand and provided input to the Commissioners. Only four members of the audience addressed the Commissioners with somewhat the same message. They all testified in essence that although they had solved their own drainage problems they felt that the overall problem was a community issue that ultimately could only be solved with community action, i.e. a Drainage District. Bob Balck an LMC member who is building his retirement home on Montgomery Court told the Commissioners that he had spent the equivalent of the cost of a small home to insure that his foundation was anchored to the bluff in such a way to preclude any possibility of erosion. He also told the Commissioners that he and his neighbors had at their own expense corrected a drainage problem so that their properties would be protected. Nonetheless, Mr. Balck felt that the only long-term remedy to drainage problems was the formation of a District and he urged the Commissioners to approve the election process. (The voters in a special election must approve the District before it can be formed.) Ron Gregory, a local builder, told the Commissioners that unless the law of gravity was rescinded, water will continue to flow downhill and will continue to be a problem to the North Bay. He urged them to approve the District election. Jim Brannaman, President of the LMC, told the Commissioners that the LMC was totally in support of the formation of the District and he also asked them to approve the election. All of those who spoke favored the District as a long-term solution to the problem of drainage. The Commissioners acted swiftly to approve the Special Election to be held on September 19th. The next step, if the District is approved by the voters is for the Commissioners to name 3 District Commissioners to serve until 2002 when a formal election of District Commissioners can occur in accordance with Washington State law.

Bluebills an Opportunity to Serve

The purpose of the Olympic Peninsula Bluebills is to provide opportunities for all retirees (not only Boeing retirees) and their spouses to volunteer their time, energy, skills, knowledge and experience to enhance their own lives and to improve the quality of life in their respective communities and in all of Jefferson, Clallam and Kitsap Counties. Groups of Bluebills are active in Port Townsend, Port Angeles, Sequim and North Kitsap County. The Bluebills are active in a number of volunteer projects. Many Port Ludlow residents are active in this service organization. Students in Port Townsend High School have been conducting science and engineering experiments in the homeroom of physics teacher John Van Auken since September. They formed a club sponsored by the Olympic Peninsula Bluebills. The Bluebills obtained a $1500 grant from the Boeing Company to pay for the student club materials and kits from an organization called Future Scientists and Engineers of America (FSEA). They are a non-profit organization that provides lesson plans, project material, documentation and awards for school technology clubs. Their goal is to give students an opportunity to experience engineering and science through use of handson experiments. The FSEA is supported by the National Science Foundation and by grants from industry. There are over 100 student clubs in the country each of which is sponsored by a private company, professional society or community organization. These projects are designed to demonstrate to the students various scientific principles and the practical engineering hands-on way to design and construct their models. The enthusiasm of the students, many of whom have little exposure or inclination to science and engineering, was encouraging. The Bluebills have an office in the Skookum Industries Building in Port Townsend and can be reached at 360385-4980, ext 115. Anyone interested in participating in these activities can contact us at our office or call one of your neighbors.

Fire District passes Audit

Fire District No.3 recieved high marks from the State Auditor's Office in recent audit of District business practices and financial management for years 1996 through 1998. In late 1999, the State Auditors Office began a comprehensive audit of Fire District No.3. In April, 2000, the Board of Commissioners received a report of the Auditor's findings. The Board was pleased to learn the report cited several minor procedural suggestions. As a matter of fact, the Auditor's suggestions for minor changes was written on one sheet of paper. The District thanks Arlene Obtinario, Office Manager/District Secretary since she was instrumental in the outcome of the positive Auditor's report. Fire District No.3 is audited on a two-year cycle by the Office of Brian Sonntag, Washington State Auditor. A copy of the above report can be obtained by written request.

June LMC Meeting Notes

by Peggy Smith

Newly elected president Jim Brannaman conducted the May 20th board meeting of the Ludlow Maintenance Commission (LMC). He opened with a reminder that the monthly meetings, while always open to all members, are primarily for the purpose of orderly dispatch of Board business. He requested that comments from the floor be kept as brief and pertinent as possible. Minutes of the March and April meetings were approved as written, with the single exception of a slight change in the wording of the drainage district report of April 15th, page four regarding the County Commissioners drainage plan meetings. Bud Kerns assured that no new proposals would be acted upon until the following meeting, allowing ample time for proposal publication and debate by the community. President Brannaman announced and the Board approved the newly appointed committee chairpersons: Architecture Communications County Affairs Covenants and Regulations Finance Greenbelt Operations Carl Jespersen Nan Smith Bill Funke George Dyer Betty Stevens George Wigginton Larry Nobles

to include expansion was approved. Dick further announced that the outdoor pool would reopen May 31st, with an extended swimming class schedule. Discussion followed regarding swim classes and club liability. George Dyer will be asked to investigate and advise. George Wigginton (18 years a greenbelt chairman!) announced that at 9:00 a.m. on both May 31st and June 1st, work parties would be removing brush and dead trees from the Swansonville/ Walker Way area. Volunteers are needed; firewood is free for the taking. The Drainage Committee's work has been accomplished and that diligent group has disbanded, reported chairman Bud Kerns. The committee strongly supported the drainage bill which will be on the September ballot, and Bud urges all LMC members to "spread the word and talk it up" throughout the community. President Brannaman emphasized the big job ahead, to inform and educate all Port Ludlow residents of the importance of the bill's passage. Lengthy debate followed the motion that the boards reverse its previous decision not to support "The Port Ludlow Voice", and to elect to support it for a trial period of four months at a cost of $200 per month. Publication of the monthly LMC bulletin would be suspended since duplication would be neither necessary nor cost-effective. Publisher Ralph Thomas assured the group that all North Bay news would be printed in a special "Beach Club News" section, making it easy to find. Comments from the floor were both pro and con; in the end, the board approved the motion with only one negative vote. Outdoor Pool is now Open Pool hours are 7:00 a.m. until 8:30 p.m. Friday, Saturday and Sunday only until June 15th. The pool will then be open daily until September 6th. A lifeguard will be on duty from 8:00 a.m. until 8:30 p.m. Children twelve and under must be accompanied by an adult. Remember to have your ID card or pass with you to gain admission. Swimming schedules are available at the desk. The next meeting of the LMC will be on Saturday, June 17th at 9:00 a.m. in the Cove Room.

Each chairperson is free to select committee members, but according to the bylaws the Board must include an ex-officio board member. Betty Stevens, reporting on the club's finances, explained that the large April expense of $5000 was to complete payment of litigation fees settling a long-standing dispute. President Brannaman added an aside that attorneys' fees begin at $5000, so "think before you sue." Dick Smith reported that the operations committee continues to be busy. Repairs have been made at Kahili Park; a beached and very dead sea lion was finally removed by ORM; the Bayview Room now boasts an improved sound system; the new tape deck, receivers, and CD player bought on sale and paid for out of '98/'99 Potluck surplus donated for Beach Club enhancement. (At this point, board member Anderson observed that club bylaws do not cover Beach Club expansion, only improvements.) His motion

SBCA Board of Directors Update

by Kate Madson

Free Spirits Elect New Board

The annual membership meeting of Free Spirits was held on Tuesday, May 9th at the Bay Club.The following Board was elected by acclamation to serve for the fiscal year 2000-2001: Loretta Close, Nancy Green, Bob Wilkinson, Pat Lohrey, Chris Whitehurst, and incumbents Val Vogt and Tony Durham. After the business meeting, there was a social hour with drinks and appetizers prepared by Judy McCay and Val Vogt. June will be membership month. Watch for an announcement in the mail. Free Spirits would like to thank all the Bay Club employees for their help in making our events a success in 19992000. Special thanks from the Free Spirits Board members.

The South Bay Community Association (SBCA) board held its quarterly meeting on April 21st. The SBCA currently has six directors: three employees of Olympic Property Group and three South Bay residents. Beginning this coming fiscal year the board will be composed entirely of residents; nominations will be solicited in the near future and all positions will be voted upon at the annual meeting. The board is responsible for Bay Club operation, administration and enforcement of South Bay convenants, trail maintenance and the landscaping of common areas not controlled by homeowners associations. Bay Club Manager Mike Morgan reported that there were 365 "dues paying units" (households) as of March 31st, two units ahead of the quarterly target. He expected the year's projected total of 371 units to be met or exceeded given the quantity of homes under construction, especially in Teal Lake Village. It was also determined that directors would receive a financial update each month rather than quarterly. The board considered, but did not act upon, a recommendation from the SBCA Advisory Board that the initiation fee for Associate Members be reduced from $2500 to $100. (There are 170 south-side lots where homeowners are not required to join the SBCA.) Some directors questioned why it should be reduced: access to Bay Club membership adds value to houses and lots, and owners of the "orphan" lots had the chance to join without an initiation fee several years ago and most declined. A potential benefit of a lower fee is an increase in members and thus a greater revenue stream from dues. The general membership will be asked to consider several matters at the Wednesday, July 12th annual meeting, including the election of all six resident directors, the structuring of a reserve fund for long-term maintenance and capital replacement, the 2001 fiscal year budget which begins July 1st and perhaps changes to the associate member policy.

Bayview Village Annual Meeting

The annual meeting for the Bayview Village Association will be held at the Bay Club on Tuesday, July 18th at 4:00 p.m. All Bayview Village homeowners are encouraged to attend this meeting and the Potluck that will be held afterwards. The Notice of Annual Meeting package will be mailed to each home shortly after the first of June. It will contain a meeting agenda, ballot, proposed budget, summary of items to be discussed and details on the Potluck. Please mark this date on your calendar and plan to attend. It is important that everyone takes this chance to vote for next year's Board of Directors and participate in the decision­making process for their Association. Call Judy McCay at 437-2156 if you have any questions.

Bridge Lessons at Bay Club

Advanced beginning Bridge lessons for players interested in sharpening bidding and playing skills will begin Wednesday, June 14th, 1:30 to 3:30 p.m. at the Bay Club, continuing for a total of eight sessions. Classes will be taught by ACBL-Certified teacher David Johnson. A $25 charge will cover instructional materials. For additional information, contact David at 437-0753.

Celebrate the Summer Solstice

A fundraiser to benefit the Turtle Bluff Orchestra Scholarship Fund will be held Sunday, June 25th, at Turtle Bluff on Marrowstone Island. Called an Ice Cream Social, the afternoon will celebrate the Summer Solstice and feature duo-pianists Gwendolyn Moore and Barbara Hinchliff playing George Gershwin's An American in Paris, Rhapsody in Blue and Three Preludes. If you heard these two performers at the end of April when the Arts Council presented them in concert, or if you are a fan of Gershwin's music, you'll want to make a point to hear them at Turtle Bluff and support the Scholarship Fund.

Enjoy Jazz & Steel Drums at Music on the Green

For the third year, the Arts Council plans a summer outdoor concert performed on the Bay Club lawn. The annual full afternoon of music will be Sunday afternoon, July 30th and will feature a trio of groups performing between 12:30 and 5:15 p.m. Top billing goes to native New Orleans jazz saxophonist Charlie May who brings a trio and vocalist to Port Ludlow. They'll take center stage from 1:30 to 2:15 p.m. and again from 3:15 to 4:00 p.m. At the age of twelve Charlie became a member of the local musician's association. Following high school he went on the road with a band where he remained for 30 years. He's performed with a variety of musical groups and still plays professionally at jazz festivals monthly. The Toucans, a steel drum band from Seattle will kick off the afternoon at 12:30 p.m. The group is an all-acoustic ensemble that combines steel drums (often called "pans"), a drum set and a wide variety of percussion with non-stop rhythmic energy. The Toucans play and enjoy many musical styles, including Calypso, Reggae, Soca and Samba. They'll return to play a second set between 2:30 and 3:00 p.m. Silverdale's Prohibition Jazz Band rounds out the afternoon with a set scheduled for 4:15 to 5:15 p.m. This vivacious, versatile group plays a wide variety of music ranging from the early roots of jazz through the blues, swing era and the classic rock of the 1950s. Prohibition's

Ludlow Little Theatre

"The Curious Savage," presented in May at the Bay Club, was a rousing success, and the cast and crew are resting on their well-deserved laurels. They wish to thank the Port Ludlow community for it's enthusiastic support and encouragement, and they promise even bigger and better things to come. Both "Little Theatre" and "Broadway," our two truly local performing groups, have put their ticket sales profits to good use since their first trial balloon seasons. They are proud of both their accomplishments and of the worthy causes they have elected to promote and support. The July issue of the Voice will carry in its Performing Arts section a detailed explanation of money made and money spent, and will name the many Port Ludlow residents who have been involved over the years. You will be proud of them, too, and pleasantly surprised!

Port Ludlow Garden Club

Practice Security; Lock Your Doors

A resident on Jackson Lane reported a near break-in at her home recently. When she read of a similar occurrence reported in the Opinion Forum in the Leader May 10th by a Port Ludlow resident, she felt it would be timely to let others know of her experience. One night around midnight, she was alone watching television when one of her dogs became agitated. She looked up from the television to see two distinct individuals passing her field of vision towards the rear deck. Frightened she reached the telephone and called 911. The 911 operator walked her through the house instructing her in securing the doors and calming her fears. To her surprise, she found the sliding door on the rear deck was unlocked and that was the direction she had perceived the intruders to be headed when she saw them. Fortunately, the dog had deterred their intention. The 911 operator kept her calm until the officers arrived and walked through the house. She wanted to commend the officers as well as the 911 operator for being prompt and professional. This resident wants her fellow neighbors and the community to know of her frightening experience. In a word, things are happening here also as everywhere in the world. Be aware and watchful and take the extra time to lock up after dark and to be alert to changes. A pet in her home certainly was a possible lifesaver one night not long ago.

The Port Ludlow Garden Club meets at 7:45 a.m. at the Bay club parking lot to board for the Wednesday, June 14th bus trip. The day promises to be a wonderful experience. We will tour to Snohomish and Woodinville to visit FlowerWorld, A&D Nursery and Bassetti Crooked Arbor Gardens. Plan to bring a sack lunch and extra drinking water as needed. I am told that if weather is inclement, we may find an eating place where we can have lunch on our own. Cost for bus and ferry is $15 and reservations are required. For reservations and/or questions call Bonnie Ahlstedt at 360-437-9113 or Francesca Drum at 360-379-3346. Mark your calendars for Wednesday, July 12th for a visit to Reflective Gardens and a tour of local gardens. Myrdelle Teaford's Garden Tips for June: If you haven't done so already, you can set out annuals now. Begin fertilizing plants as soon as you plant them. The nurseries have a large stock of blooming perennials in one gallon cans. You can slip them into a decorative pot to enjoy on a patio table or just plant them immediately. Don't feed them until the blooms have faded and you have picked them off. There is still time to get dahlia tubers in the ground for bloom in late summer and early fall. As you plant the tubers, put stakes in place to support the plants as they grow. I have had a number of inquiries about hiring yard cleanup work. In the past the mere question started me off on a tirade to relate a number of horror stories dealing with so-called help in the yard which ranged from poor work to overcharging and in one case a landscaper who apparently didn't pay for the materials he used and absconded with the money I paid the company for whom he worked. Well now I can praise a couple of local guys who specialize in "Landscape Disaster Repair." My yard was overgrown and looked neglected and was near to disaster condition. These young fellows came in and in two days had my property all pruned, fertilized, raked and in top shape. I was delighted with their work. Anyone interested in contacting them can call me at 360437-0349 for their number.

Page 18 Ames Lane: Edwin G. Ames, from East Machias, was related maternally to C. F. A. Talbot. Ames had been the protégé of his grandfather; he learned the business and the lore of Pope & Talbot thoroughly. Ames advanced rapidly within the company and was with the company for 50 years. He built his Seattle home in Washington Park, a Pope & Talbot development in Seattle. Ames eventually bequeathed this house to the University of Washington for use as the official residence of its president. Sayward Lane: W. P. Sayward rented the sloping site on Ludlow Bay from homesteader J. K. Thorndyke and built one of the first sawmills of the Northwest. Tyee Lane: Owned by the Puget Mill Company, the Tyee was the most powerful tug on Puget Sound, measuring in at 140 feet in length. It was also one of the few coal burning tugs. The father of Harry Collier, former president of Standard Oil of California, was the first engineer aboard the Tyee. Evans Lane: Former Senator and Governor Daniel Jackson Evans is a relative of Daniel Bachelder Jackson. Walker Way: Cyrus Walker accompanied Captain Talbot on his 1853 trip to select the millsite and remained as an employee. After Captain Keller died Pope & Talbot sold Walker a one-tenth interest in the total assets of the Puget Mill Company and made him Northwest manager. Walker remained active in the Puget Mill Company for 54 years. Rainier Lane/Court: The name Rainier was selected by Captain George Vancouver after his friend, British Rear Admiral Peter Rainier, who never saw the mountain or set foot in the United States. Machias Loop: The founders of Pope & Talbot and many of the original workers at their mills and ships were from East Machias, Maine. Machias and East Machias are located in the eastern portion of the state of Maine, on the coast, near the Bay of Fundy and the Grand Manan Channel. Olympic Lane: Robert Gray, an American, and Captain George Vancouver, an Englishman, did the most enduring surveys of this region. Olympic is named for the mountain range and Mount Olympus. Cressey Lane: Lewis Cressey operated Camp Gamble for the Puget Mill Company which produced almost 86,000,000 feet of logs during its three years of operation. In 1925 the Puget Mill Company had another job for Cressey. The development of Alderwood Manor in

What's in a Name?

by Shana Smith, Curator, Port Gamble Historic Museum

This concludes our series describing what's behind the name of a street here in Port Ludlow and where I hoped to give you the background of some of the names. Camano Lane: Captain George Vancouver sailed in northern Puget Sound in 1792 charting shorelines shaped by the Vashon Glacier approximately 12,000 years earlier. Utsalady on Camano Island was the site of a Pope & Talbot lumber mill in 1877. Pope & Talbot shut the mill down in 1890, never to reopen again. The Camano was also the name of a topsail schooner that was built in 1902 for the Puget Mill Company. Resolute Lane: Two prominent millmen joined forces to buy the first towboat to appear on Puget Sound, the 89-foot Resolute. In 1857, W. C. Talbot of the Puget Mill Company and G. A. Meigs of the Port Madison sawmill bought the Resolute for towing in connection with their mill business. The Resolute towed thousands of logs not only for her owners but also for practically every sawmill on Puget Sound. She exploded in 1868 in Olympia. Goliah Lane: From the time the Puget Mill Company's Goliah appeared on Puget Sound in 1871 to about 1876 or 1877, she is reported to have towed practically every sailing vessel destined for the American side and about half of those bound for the Straits of Nanaimo. The second Goliah was purchased in 1909 and continued working in Puget Sound for Pope & Talbot. Swansonville Road: In the 1890's Grandpa Swanson left Norway and arrived in Port Gamble where he supervised the loading of the ships. Mr. Swanson, looking for a place to raise his family, found land in Port Ludlow at the top of the hill west of Port Ludlow Bay. He then worked at the mill in Port Ludlow and built his home at the top of the hill, in what is now known as Swansonville. A number of the Swansons are still living in the area and much of the original farm is still held by family members. Talbot Way: Frederic and William C. Talbot were brothers who were part of the original Talbots in Pope & Talbot. There were many Talbots through the years who advanced within the company. Frederic Talbot decided to return to Maine and his brother William became the principal Talbot of the new enterprise. Captain Talbot in 1853 explored and found the site of their first mill, Port Gamble. He died in 1881.

Port Ludlow Voice north Seattle was underway and Cressey built all the roads in the tract and cleared one acre of each plot. Lewis Cressey's biggest contribution is that he knew the location of every piece of Puget Mill property in the state, and even today surveyors find corner markers set by him in the early 1920s. Helm Lane: C. E. Helms worked for the Charles R. McCormick Lumber Company and was in charge of the rehabilitation of the mill properties. Later when Pope & Talbot reacquired the properties, C. E. Helms was elected vice-president and general manager of the lumber and steamship companies. Gamble Lane: The word Gamble has had many uses over the years for Pope & Talbot, from the town of Port Gamble to a schooner and a logging camp. Lt. Robert Gamble was wounded in a sea battle between the U. S. frigate President and the British Belvidere during the War of 1812. Phinney Lane: In 1858 Arthur Phinney with his partners Zachariah Amos and William Hooke leased the SaywardThorndyke mill. Mr. Phinney, like Captain Talbot, was banking on a bright future for the mill as he operated it. By 1869 he owned the entire Ludlow mill operation. Arthur Phinney was rebuilding his mill to compete with other mills when he died in 1877. The mill was sold at auction in November 1878 to the Puget Mill Company. Drew Lane: Michael S. Drew arrived in 1858 and worked for the Puget Mill Company until 1899 when he moved to Seattle and entered the real estate business. During his years, he held a variety of jobs including timber agent and "overseer in the mill." As the timber agent he purchased so much land on its behalf, that the Puget Mill Company became the largest owner of timberland in Washington. Fred Drew was a log agent for the Puget Mill Company and then later the land agent. Puget Loop: British Navy Captain George Vancouver began to survey the surrounding area and dispatched Lt. Peter Puget to conduct a detailed survey of the waters to the south. Lt. Puget shoved off in a launch on May 20, 1792 on a six-day tour of the southern sound. Captain Vancouver named it Puget after his Lieutenant.

Travel Tips

by Maureen Poole

Inside Alaska. Port Ludlow is a boating community and for many either their own boat or a cruise is the chosen way to see Alaska. Occasionally, I hear a grumble about Alaska having a beautiful coast and some interesting ports, but what's the big deal! The big deal is the interior. No, not a long bus or train ride. Not the endless motorcoach through the neighboring Yukon Territory for a bit of gold rush legend. I mean the interior in a wilderness lodge or fishing camp. I'm talking Ecotourism. That's not exactly new to our hiking or kayaking clubs, but there are a lot of anglers, walkers, bird watchers and animal lovers that would enjoy a much closer look at things. Alaska Wildland Adventures is one company that offers a close­up hands on experience that doesn't have to be an Olympic feat. Location is the key factor. Most folks think conventional transportation. Not on this adventure! The only way to reach their Denali Wilderness Lodge is by bush plane. Once there, you'll experience Aslaka as few modern travelers do. This understated but spectacular lodge took fifteen years of short summer construction to complete. The comfortable lounge and Atrium dining room are the centerpieces of the main building. Views include Mt. Anderson at 6,792 feet. Many rooms are accented with fireplaces or stoves. An intimate library completes the building. Rooms and cabins are comfortable but not deluxe. Activities can include hiking, horseback riding (2-1/2 hours included per day), fishing, wildlife and wildflower viewing, birding, evening campfires, panning for gold, canoeing or tundra napping. They have whatever you desire in the way of experiencing the vast wonders of Alaska. Rethink Alaska and how much you will enjoy it when you get up close and personal!

Coast Guard Auxiliary

by John Reseck

Quite unexpectedly I got a chance to experience a real missing vessel drill off the coast of Baja California in the Sea of Cortez in April. The vessel was a single kayak that seemed to just disappear. The water was dead flat and only a 1/4-knot of current was going south. Our kayak group had paddled to an off shore island from a drop off point about four miles north of town to save us the longer paddle from town to the island. After snorkeling at the island, we left to go to an old hotel abandoned on the mainland to snorkel again, then paddle three miles back to our pickup point. When we got to the old hotel we noticed one of our party wasn't there. We could see one of our group with a sail up heading directly for the pickup point because the wind was too soft to sail well. We could see no other boats anywhere within several miles even from on top the cliff. There was a small island half way from the big island we had left and we thought our missing member had stopped there. When they didn't appear after about 20 minutes, I got in a boat and paddled back to get them. They weren't there. I paddled around the island and checked for footprints on its only beach ­ there were none. I paddled back to where we had started on the big island, no sign of a paddler. It was impossible ­ a boat and paddler had just disappeared on a flat sea where we could see for miles with no place to hide. I had a hand held radio and called an all station call on Channel 16. I said we had a missing kayaker and would appreciate any help we could get to look for her. A boat came back that was anchored two miles away. They used their boat radio to contact the hotel where we were staying and other boats in the area that were fishing. Many of the boats put there dingy in the water and the search was on. For one hour we searched, then we got a call from the hotel that our missing person had just paddled up to their beach and came into the office.

What had happened? It was all the leaders fault, me. The conditions were so perfect that we had not had an official meeting of exactly what we were going to do. We had discussed that we were going over to the old hotel but I didn't announce it to make sure everyone knew it. Our missing person didn't know that was where we were going, she was just following the group. She had stopped at the small island to photograph the birds and when she came out from behind it the group was not visible because the sun was in her eyes and we were ¾ of a mile away by then. She saw the sail kayak going south and figured we were all ahead of it going back to the take-out spot. She paddled south looking for the group on shore. She missed the take-out spot because she was looking for all of our kayaks on the beach. Her only option at that time was to continue to paddle the four miles back to the hotel. She knew where that was. Lessons learned. Make sure everyone knows the plan. No matter how perfect the conditions are the group has to stay together. It pays to be in good shape ­ she paddled about 13 miles over all that day to get home. It was comforting to know that with the radio we had 13 boats and an all shore facilities in the hunt within 30 minutes. I don't think we could do that well in Admiralty Inlet. It's amazing how everyone instantly turns out to help when you are away from civilization. Perhaps they are more aware of the old saying, "What goes around, comes around." Once again I found myself in a situation where my Coast Guard Auxiliary training helped me handle it. Maybe its time for you to join the CG Auxiliary and get better prepared to handle your emergency when it happens.

They had bag piper Ken Fox and drummer Don Millbauer lead the procession of officers to the Marina flag pole where the flags of the United States, Canada, Coast Guard Auxiliary, Washington State and PLYC were hoisted to drum rolls and the appropriate anthems. The group looked sharp in their blue blazers and white pants as they proceeded to "christen" 12 new boats into the yacht club. There was a parade of boats past Commodore Sue Kievit's boat and then an extensive party/open house (boat) on "A" Dock was held for several hours.

Dragon To Fly Into Bremerton National Airport

A 65­foot long, 45,000 lb. dragon clutching a damsel in distress will fly into Bremerton National Airport. Named "The Dragon and His Tail," the B-24 aircraft served in the Pacific Theater with the 43rd Bomb Group, 64th Bomb Squadron and the "nose art" which runs the entire length of the plane is considered one of the best of thousands of examples painted on American aircraft by crew members who viewed them as talismans for a safe return. Accompanying the B-24 will be the B-17 "Nine-ONine." "Nine-O-Nine" completed 140 missions with the 91st Bomb Group without an abort or loss of crewman. "We're very pleased to host this tribute to both European and Pacific Theater Veterans," notes Jack Brooke, local stop organizer.

Dog Notes

by Mike Buss (AKA Director of Golf)

It is my pleasure to introduce Bill Shea as our new Head Golf Professional. Bill has many years of experience in the golf business running golf events, teaching and attending to golfers needs. He is a very good player and will be taking teams to some of the local Pro-Ams. Please stop by the golf shop and give Bill a warm Port Ludlow welcome. It's June and time to start planning for our annual Mr. & Mrs. Golf Tournament. This year's event will be held on June 27th and 28th. Look for the entries coming out soon and sign up early to secure your spot in the biggest couples event of the year. We hope some of you got a chance to see the juniors playing at Port Ludlow last month in the International Junior Golf Tour event we hosted. These juniors, ranging in age from 10 to 19, are some of the best young players from all over the United States. It was really exciting to see these youngsters with such great golf swings. On the first day, one 12-year-old was 3 under par at the turn after playing on Tide. The Hole in One he had on Tide #3 really helped; however he did have two other birdies on that nine. They liked the course and have intentions of returning next year. We hope they do. With the better weather this spring, Jerry Mathews and his crew have brought the course up to great condition earlier than usual; in fact we could have started playing summer rules. After much discussion we decided to wait primarily due to our sanding of the fairways program slated for completion the 19th of June. We have tentatively scheduled to start playing summer rules June 1st. We will keep you informed as to our progress. Thank you for your patience during this sanding program. Again this year we will be hosting a Cascade Golf Tour event. This is the Pacific Northwest's only Professional mini tour. Come out and see these great players play our course. They will be starting at 8:00 a.m. on June 5th and 6th.

Also, don't forget about our upcoming 25th Anniversary Celebration June 3rd through June 11th Please plan to attend the festivities and help us celebrate! Here is the revised schedule of events:

June 3rd Jazz Music Program and Barbecue at the Heron Beach Inn. Classic Car Show at Marina from 10:00 a.m.2:00 p.m. One-Meter sailing regatta at the Marina pond Rock and Reggae band at the picnic area from 7:00-10:00 p.m. Free Golf Clinic Throughout the Day Closest to the Pin Contest A-Star Digital Video teaching system Slazenger putter fitting 9:00 a.m. -2:00 p.m. Charity Pro-Am Golf Tournament Cascade Golf Tour $25 Green Fees All Day Coast Guard Auxiliary Boat Safety Check

The Presidents Pitch

by Jerry Conover

I would like to take this opportunity to introduce myself to the membership and staff here at Port Ludlow Golf Course. I have been a Golf Professional since graduating from Lynchburg College in 1991. After participating in many different Mini-Tours during my early twenties, I soon realized that my passion was not only in playing, but also in trying to instill the love of the game in others. I realized that through instruction, running tournaments and daily conversations with members this goal was attainable. To me, being a club professional is the greatest job in the world. My recent background experience has occurred here on the Olympic Peninsula. As an Assistant Professional at both Dungeness and Sunland CC, I was fortunate enough to instruct many lessons, administer tournaments, and implement junior golf programs. The PGA has developed a new educational program that must be completed to obtain membership. It's designed to incorporate many different areas of the golf profession into one program. Our Assistant Professional Dave Ramsey is currently enrolled in the program, and we feel confident that the information attained in these schools will help us become better professionals. We are both looking forward to applying what we've learned to our positions here at Port Ludlow. My wife and I are currently living in Sequim with our two children. Jack is 2 ½ years old, and Sarah is just six months old. Our family is very excited about my position here, and we are looking forward to meeting everyone. My door is always going to be open, so please feel free to come by anytime. If you have any questions about my lesson schedule or rates, just call the pro shop at 360-437-0272 or 800-455-0272.

Friday, April 28th through Sunday, April 30th the Port Ludlow Golf Course hosted a 13-nation golf competition unlike any seen. The event was a tour for youths called the IJGT, or International Junior Golf Tour, headquarters in Hilton Head, South Carolina. There were probably 100 young athletes competing and these kids were good. I talked to Jim and Gwen Garvey, the leadership of the group, and besides being the up and coming golfers in the nation the discipline required was astounding. They had to meet high academic standards. Have bad grades and you're out! Throw a tantrum and you're out! I talked to them and it was refreshing to experience their courtesy and their respect and their very apparent appreciation of our golf course. By the way, winning score was a 73, scored by a 16-year-old young man from British Columbia. Thank Mike Buss and Staff for bringing this special event to us. One event doesn't ice the cake. We have the Seattle Chocolates Charity Pro Am on Sunday, June 4th. The amateurs, (us, if we sign up), play Sunday and the next couple of days the "Cascade Tour" will compete. Expect to see a lot of Bill Shea, the new head professional along with Mike Buss keeping things running smoothly. Many of you have noticed there is a sign-up sheet for volunteers on our information board. Mike, Bill, Tony and Dave will need our support. Our Handicap Chairman, Phil Otness, outlined incomplete play scoring in our May 10th MGA General Meeting. He discussed points many people had not known. We coordinated our summer long "eclectic," and Ray Carlson announced the format for the Presidents Cup and the fall Club Championship. June highlights follow: The first round of the Presidents Cup is Wednesday, June 7th. Wednesday, June 14th is Home and Home with Wingpoint Golf and Country Club. Finally, set aside Tuesday, June 27th and Wednesday, June 28th for the annual Mr. and Mrs. This is a highlight of the year, Mike and his staff spare no effort in showcasing their expertise.

Beaver's Tales

by Jerry L. Mathews, CGCS

Finishing touches are being made with our Audubon Cooperative Sanctuary Certification process. Hopefully next month we'll have more information to share. We still have a few birdhouses left for adoption. On the Audubon board in the Golf Shop is a wildlife inventory sheet. You can help us update our list by writing down wildlife observed on the course while playing or walking. Also, any wildlife photos you'd wish to share would be appreciated. This blue heron was photographed on the edge of the pond on #4 Tide. Fairway topdressing is going well and should improve playing conditions. The drainage improvements will also help in drying the course. Newest members of our full time staff are Roy Bosley, Assistant to the Equipment Manager, and Brett Johnson, Greenkeeper 2. Both have been seasonal employees for two seasons and have earned full time status. Congratulations to Roy and Brett.

Spirt of Puget Sound passing Burner Point.

Looks like we need a bigger fuel dock.

Spirit of Puget Sound Visits Port Ludlow

The Associated General Contractors association had a treat when they spent the evening of May 19th on board the Spirt of Puget sound. This 150' 400 passenger dinner cruise ship normally operates out of Seattle but was a special charter for the contractors and their guests. Watching this large ship pull up to the fuel dock at our Marina was very interesting. It was so wide it just barely passed between the buoy and the outer dock and then had to back out after picking up her passengers. The ship did not return until 10 p.m. and then had to repeat the process in the dark. For one of the crew this was a homecoming. Diana Hickman, daughter of Ralph and Lynn Thomas, is an entertainer on board. She is working this summer between classes.

Program Installing and Removing Programs on Your PC ­ From Blues to Bliss by Don Plorde Have you been frustrated in installing a new software program on your PC? Some problems which seem to crop up are failure of the installation to complete with your PC locking up, the new program not working properly (lockups or strange error messages), or your old programs no longer working correctly after the new installation. Or, have you tried a new program out and decided it was not for you and now you don't know how to get rid of the bloody thing? These problems are often confounded by "gratuitous" freebies thrown in by software providers that suddenly appear after the new installation and by the "mystery" programs that you know nothing about eating up your processor's power not to speak of megabytes of hard disk storage. We will try to sort out all of these problems and give you some help in proper procedures to perform these tasks so as to minimize chances of future problems.

Sometimes You Get What You Wish For

A couple had been married for 25 years and was celebrating the husband's 60th birthday. During the party, a fairy appeared and said that because they had been such a loving couple all those years, she would give them one wish each. The wife said, "We've been so poor all these years, and I've never gotten to see the world. I wish we could travel all over the world." The fairy waved her wand and POOF! She had the tickets in her hand. Next, it was the husband's turn. He paused for a moment, and then said, "Well, I'd like to be married to a woman 30 years younger than me." The fairy waved her wand and POOF! He was 90.
