NEWSPAPER ARTICLES by C. E. Mills:

Dethier, M., B. Swalla, C. Mills and R. Strathmann, 2014. "Why Marine Reserves?" published June 12-14, 2014 - Sanjuanislander.com; Islandguardian.com; Sanjuanjournal.com, and appeared in the print version of The Journal of the San Juan Islands on June 18, 2014, pp.7-8. Environmental information article about the value of marine reserves locally in the San Juan Islands and as part of a larger network of protected ocean waters. The article was written shortly after an application was submitted to the San Juan County Planning Department for a large dock overlying a portion of one of the University of Washington marine preserves.

Mills, C. "Research here leads to Nobel in Chemistry: U.W. Friday Harbor Laboratories hosted core research for the 2008 Nobel Prize in Chemistry" published October 15, 2008 in the paper edition of The Journal of the San Juan Islands on p. 11A. Scientist Osamu Shimamura was a visiting scientist for 20 summers at the University of Washington Friday Harbor Laboratories, beginning in 1961. His studies of the green-fluorescent protein (GPF) that is part of the bioluminescent system in the local jellyfish Aequorea victoria was the foundation for further work that ultimately turned GPF into a ubiquitous fluorescent genetic marker that can easily be inserted into other cell types, producing cells or entire organisms that fluoresce under UV illumination. Shimomura shared the 2008 Nobel Prize in Chemistry with Martin Chalfie and Roger Tsien who did fundamental work on putting GFP into other cell types. Chalfie and Tsien also did portions of their work using Aequorea at the Friday Harbor Laboratories.

Mills, C. "Hedrick Smith films 'Frontline' episode in Friday Harbor" published September 17, 2008 in the paper edition of The Journal of the San Juan Islands on p. 12A. Discusses local filming of PBS "Frontline" episode for winter 2009 that examines the faltering state of environmental protection in America and, using two case studies, asks why it is so difficult to save premier waterways like Puget Sound and Chesapeake Bay.

Mills, C., R. Strathmann, D. Willows, A. Whiteley and G. Mackie, 2008. "Obituary - Volker Schmid" published April 30, 2008 in the paper edition of The Journal of the San Juan Islands on p. 9A. In memory of Swiss scientist who was a part-time resident of San Juan Island for 30 years, and who did biological research and teaching at the Friday Harbor Laboratories.

Mills, C. and D. Padilla. "Environment: Oysters -- an invasive tale" posted online September 21, 2004, The Journal of the San Juan Islands at sanjuanjournal.com. Published October 6, 2004 in the paper edition of The Journal of the San Juan Islands on p. 17A as "Oysters -- an invasive tale in the San Juans." Environmental information article about the growing population of non-native Pcific oysters on San Juan County shorelines, explaining that this is not the native oyster making a comeback, but an invasive species out of control.

Mills, C. "Claudia Mills explains her comments [on not wanting improvements to ferry service]" posted February 1, 2003, San Juan Islander - online daily newspaper for the San Juan Islands at sanjuanislander.com. Short essay explaining why I believe that the San Juan Island lifestyle relies on poor (not improved) ferry service.

Mills, C. "What's up with all those red jellyfish, anyway?" posted online October 15, 2002, The Journal of the San Juan Islands at sanjuanjournal.com and Islandsweekly.net. Reprinted October 6, 2004 in the paper edition of The Journal of the San Juan Islands on p. 17A as "What's up with those red jellies?" Environmental information article about the sudden (nearly annual) presence of many Lion's Mane jellyfish stranded on the beaches of San Juan County, Washington, with background information about local oceanography.

Mills, C. "People for Puget Sound Creature Feature. JELLYFISH: Aequorea victoria." July 2002, People for Puget Sound Newsletter Sound and Straits, Vol 12 (2), p. 8 (back).

Mills, C.E. "Purple varnish clam - a new alien." September 1, 1999, The Journal of the San Juan Islands, p 5A. Information article about the recent invasion of an asian clam into San Juan County and elsewhere in Washington State.

Mills, C.E. "No proof green crab creeps islands' shores." July 21, 1999, The Journal of the San Juan Islands. Opinion piece giving information on the green crab invasion in Washington State, correcting a highly inaccurate news brief published in the same paper the previous week.

Mills, C. "Establish more reserves to protect bottom fish and angling." November 5, 1997, The Journal of the San Juan Islands, p. 7A. Opinion piece urging fishermen and other citizens to take a stand in helping to protect both the disappearing bottomfish and recreational fishing in San Juan County.

Mills, C. "Ferry reservation system beats more parking lots." February 14, 1996, The Islands' Sounder (and The Journal of the San Juan Islands). Opinion piece describing the concept of a "virtual parking lot" system that would allow persons waiting for ferries to line up electronically rather than by physically putting their cars in line in a parking lot, and thus saving hours of waiting time that could be put to more enjoyable purposes. (By my own estimation, this was a brilliant idea whose time still has not come.)

Mills, C. OVERHEAD AND UNDERFOOT. 1980-1982, The Island Record, San Juan County, Washington. Weekly bylined newspaper column about natural history (mostly terrestrial) and astronomical events of interest to residents of San Juan County, Washington.

Mills, C. "A Myriad of Jellyfish." August 13, 1980, The Island Record, San Juan County, Washington. Information article about the highly diverse and numerous jellyfish present in the San Juan Archipelago in the summertime.

PACIFIC NORTHWEST MAGAZINE (Sunday Supplement to the Seattle TIMES), 27 June 1999. Cover photo of Aequorea victoria, again unfortunately interpreted by the editors as an image of bioluminescence when it was merely a very nice reflected light flash photograph.

CONSERVATION BIOLOGY, February 1998, Volume 12, Number 1. Cover photo of an undescribed midwater jellyfish, in illustration of an article by Mills and Carlton calling for open ocean marine protected areas.

TRENDS IN GENETICS, August 1995, Volume 11, Number 8. Cover photo and pull-out poster, same issue. Photograph erroniously attributed to Douglas Prasher, who seems to have conveniently forgotten that he didn't take this photo of the jellyfish Aequorea. (The journal subsequently published a correction/apology for attributing my photo to Dr. Prasher.) The reflected-light (from my camera strobe) image of a jellyfish was also passed off as green fluorescence, and erroneously dyed green for the cover by someone who did not understand jellyfish fluorescence or bioluminescence. This and other myths about organism level bioluminescence can be further explored at the Bioluminescence Web Page.
