Derelict fishing nets' toll: 30,000 marine birds, 110,000 fish and 2 million invertebrates a year
Oct 13 2009, 2:42 PM
NORTHWEST OF YELLOW ISLAND, SAN JUAN CHANNEL — "Lost" gill nets are never really lost.
Fishing boat operators cut loose snagged nets and get their boats free and head for port. The derelict nets remain where they were snagged — often for decades — catching and killing marine life.
The Northwest Straits Foundation estimates derelict gill nets capture and kill an estimated 30,000 marine birds, 110,000 fish and 2 million invertebrates, like crabs, annually over an area of 645 acres of Puget Sound marine habitat. Since 2001, the foundation's Derelict Net Survey and Removal Project has removed 1,300 gill nets covering 280 acres through June of this year. The effort was stalling for lack of money.

'Carmen': Opera Pacifica brings a rare opportunity, and a beautiful story, to SJCT
Oct 15 2009, 5:09 PM
Since Georges Bizet's "Carmen" premiered in 1875, the comic opera and its music ("Les Toreadors," "Habanera") have become immortalized on stage and in film. Hard to infuse something unique into such a classic, particularly after so many film adaptations (the 1983 film directed by Carlos Saura was nominated for a Best Foreign Film Oscar, and Beyonce Knowles starred in an MTV "hip hopera" version in 2001).
