Not in This Neighborhood, Some Residents Now Say

SAN JUAN ISLAND - A drug operation is tucked into the trees on a San Juan Island horse farm that neighbors have argued could lead to "home-invasion robberies, thefts and murders."

The drug in question? Not cocaine, heroin or methamphetamine; rather, it's marijuana, which David Rice received a permit in August to cultivate in one of the island's first legal grow operations. And possibly one of its last. In what some consider an appalling turn of events on an island known for its agriculture, small-town feel and strong sense of community, Rice laid off his 16 employees and shut down his business, San Juan Sun Grown, in the face of a lawsuit from angry neighbors that also threatens the horse-breeding and riding-lessons business of his sister, Jenny Rice.

Sunday, September 22, 2002 - OAK CREEK - Inside the VFW bar, the man next to Kathy "Cargo" Rodeman would not stop.

Punctuating his points with two fingers, he jabbed her shoulder, hard. Again and again.

Growing up, her daddy - the sweetest man until he drank, she said - used to beat her, until one day she bested him with a chair and a fireplace poker.

So in the bar, after one jab too many, she turned, hooked one long, wiry arm around the guy's waist and took him down.
