The farmers market: A growing affair As Allison Bockus steps down, the market’s numbers show it is thriving

Center forest may close for 17-day deer hunt season By NATALIE JOHNSON

slanders and tourists turned out in droves for Saturday’s Farmers Market, buying fresh greens, ripe tomatoes, carrots and caramels as the sound of music wafted through the air. Some lined up for La Playa’s tacos and tamales. Others sat at picnic tables, chatting with friends under a warm September sun.

It was a typical day at the market, except that this one was particularly special to those who organize the weekly event: The market’s vendors sold $12,902 worth of produce and goods, a new milestone for the bustling market. “It was our best day ever in market history,” said a clearly pleased Allison Bockus, the market’s manager. “Labor Day weekend is usually a good weekend. But this one sets a new record.” Like farmers markets everywhere, Vashon’s has felt the impact of a lingering recession. But now, as Bockus turns over the reins to Rebecca Wittman, hired

Farmers market manager Allison Bockus talks to Rebecca Wittman, who will replace Bockus this winter.. as the new manager by the Vashon Island Growers Association board late last month, Vashon’s farmers market seems to have fully turned a corner. And these days, it’s again packed with people and lined with well-stocked tables week after week. Bockus stepped in at a difficult period a year and a half ago, taking on the position after the Vashon Island Growers Association, a nonprofit that oversees the market, decided not to renew then-market manager

Ivan Weiss’s contract, a move that divided some of the vendors. But Bockus, a tall, energetic woman whose 11-year-old twins sell hand-made bracelets at the market, has helped to bring a new energy and professionalism to the enterprise while retaining its funky, home-grown flavor, some say. Under Bockus, every vendor now has a sign — many of them artful and colorful — that touts his or her farm. Tables are heaping, in part because she some-

times squeezes vendors together to make sure there’s a look of abundance. A new co-op booth has been added — a place where Island gardeners who have extra produce but not enough to justify a whole table can sell their goods. She’s also pushed the envelope on occasion. Determined to make the bazaar what she calls a “buyers’ market,” she brought in an off-Island honey producer SEE MARKET, 16

The county hopes to close Island Center Forest to everyone but deer hunters for 17 days in October. In an effort to continue to allow deer hunting at the forest while ensuring public safety, King County has proposed a shortened hunting season at the forest, during which time the area would be closed to all other uses. The abbreviated hunting season would take place from Oct. 15 to 31. David Kimmet, a King County natural resources manager, said the county developed the proposal based on extensive feedback it gathered from Islanders last year. The issue of hunting in the forest came to a head last fall, when neighbors and frequent users of the forest raised concerns about whether hunting was compatible with the growing number of people who come to the forest to walk dogs, run and ride horses. The county even temporarily banned hunting at the forest, canceling a portion of the 2010 hunting season because of safety concerns. At both a public meeting in October and through individual comments submitted to the county, SEE HUNTING, 23

Family rebuilds after a devastating fire By LESLIE BROWN Staff Writer

The Vashon family who lost their home to a dramatic and fast-moving fire Wednesday say they’ve been touched and amazed by the community’s outpouring of support. Wesley and Lisbeth Peterson and their four sons began renting the 3,000-square-foot home on the 16900 block of Westside Highway 10 Leslie Brown/Staff Photo months ago, after Wesley got a job as one of Puget The Peterson family, from left, Elan, Wesley, Lisbeth, Soren, Brennan and Josiah, with Sound Energy’s two service linemen on Vashon.

It just confirmed that we made the right decision to move here,” he said. “I don’t recommend that everyone experience a house fire to realize how good this community is. SEE FIRE, 14

Welcome Vashon will celebrate successes, generate new ideas Group continues its efforts to make Island a more welcoming place By NATALIE JOHNSON Staff Reporter

When Dan Kaufman and a small group of Islanders organized Welcome Vashon last winter, they had no idea how many people would show at the group’s kickoff event — where they hoped Vashon residents would brainstorm projects to make the Island a more welcoming place. “We did a good job getting the word out, but we had no idea if it would be 25 people or 100,â€? Kaufman said, recalling the February event they called “We All Belong.â€? As it turned out, more than 150 Islanders showed at the Open Space for Art & Community to join in the effort. Twenty projects emerged, created by Islanders of various ages, races and socioeconomic backgrounds. “It was was beyond our wildest dreams in terms of numbers, energy and excitement. ‌ Once the actual event was over, the

energy around the project and the work has kind of continued to grow,� Kaufman said. At the group’s second big event, Saturday’s Welcome Vashon Celebration, leaders hope to recognize the work done by participants over the last six months, as well as build on the existing energy by brainstorming new projects and developing a community mural. Kaufman said event organizers hope to see 300 people show this time, a goal he called ambitious. “People had a great time (last time). It’s not just a working thing,� he said. “This really is an energetic and fulfilling opportunity for people.� Since February’s event, Kaufman noted, Welcome Vashon participants have been very active, some aided by mini-grants given out by the organization. One group has held conversations about homelessness on the Island. Another made treat bags for children who visit the food bank. Some are working to get welcome signs installed at both ferry docks. Two separate groups have taken steps to make the Island’s Hispanic community feel more included. Another group’s goal is simply to smile at strangers more, and one woman brought

Bethel Church To Celebrate Its 85th Anniversary Sunday, September 18 will bring a special time of celebration to Bethel Church, as they will commemorate 85 years of serving the Vashon community. The Sunday afternoon and evening festivities will begin at 4:00pm with stories, videos, music and displays from the church’s long history. A Norwegian-themed potluck dinner will be served, honoring the heritage of the congregation. Anyone who has been associated with Bethel in past, or is in the present, or is interested in learning about this vibrant church family, is invited to attend. Bethel Church is located in the northwest quadrant of Vashon Island, at 14736 Bethel Lane SW. Questions can be directed to the church office, 567-4255. In September 1926 a group of fifteen islanders met to organize a local church, among them several long-time island families: the Didricksens, the Habbestads, the Fosmarks and others. Carl Fosmark accepted the responsibility of leading this Norwegian-speaking group of worshipers. Beginning with meetings in the Lutheran Free Church, the group soon moved to an old barn. In 1927, they held revival-style meetings in tents on a wooded property. This continued for several summers until the Pacific Northwest District of the Evangelical Free Church purchased some Vashon Island property and established conference grounds here in 1941. 1927 also saw the beginning of building plans, with a basement excavated first and services held there until completion of a church building in 1941. It wasn’t until 1937 that any English-speaking worship services were offered, and then only twice per month! Over the years, many changes have taken place. The campus grew to include a parsonage and a multi-ministry building. Worship services were eventually entirely in English. Ministries have included Christian schools, Young Life, Young at Heart, Hispanic worship, services at the Vashon Community Care Center, and worldwide mission efforts to Uganda, Nepal, Haiti and other countries. For the past 15 years Bethel has been home to the popular children’s ministry, “AWANAâ€?. Many Islanders will also remember the fire of December 26, 1999. A special Christmas service that Sunday morning was the last service to be held in the long-time sanctuary. The old building, with its knotty pine interior, became a flaming beacon that night. Valiant efforts by our local firefighters saved the multi-ministry building from burning with the old church building. For some years afterward, worship services were held in the remaining building while plans were made to build a new worship center. The new worship center was dedicated in2006, and has served as something of a community center. Bethel has been the home of many concerts, theater performances, and other community events. In 2009, worship services began to be offered in Spanish for the many Hispanic people who have now moved to the Island. And special monthly youth services and other junior high and high school events are offered as well. Bethel seeks to be a vital part of the Vashon community and continues to offer well-staffed children’s programs, summer camps, Christian education programs, youth activities, and more. We invite the community to celebrate with us on September 18, beginning at 4:00pm, as we look to the past to acknowledge God’s faithfulness and leading, and also anticipate what God plans for Bethel in the future and our involvement on Vashon Island. #FUIFM-BOF48t7BTIPO8"t

an awardwinning PBS documentar y film series to Vashon. “There has been a ton of stuff happening,� Kaufman said. At the celebration event this weekend, representatives Dan Kaufman from each project will give short presentations on what they’ve accomplished. Then, like at the first event, the room will break into small groups to brainstorm what participants should do next, possibly coming up with entirely new projects. “We hope to turn a small flame into a forest fire by providing an opportunity for people to come together and share what they’re doing,� Kaufman said. Islander Raven Pyle-McCrackyn showed up for Welcome Vashon’s February event and has since become involved with several projects. Now a Welcome Vashon organizer, she says she loves how the project has embraced and included Islanders of all ages, races and walks of life. “When we had skateboarders at the same table with seniors, they found things they had in common and had some really good ideas,� she said. Pyle-McCrackyn said that as the mother of a young boy who has autism, she herself has at times felt out of place on Vashon, unable to socialize with other parents easily. As part of Welcome Vashon, she says she

has made new friends and connections with a wide variety of Islanders. “We often go home to our hidey-holes,� she said. “This process itself has really connected me to the community.� Kaufman said he has invited members of other Vashon service organizations to this weekend’s event, hoping to recognize their efforts and build connections among Islanders who have similar goals in improving the Island community. “We’re trying to create a bigger net and interconnectedness,� he said. To conclude the morning, attendees will select designs for a mural that will eventually go up on Vashon. Pyle-McCrackyn said the Welcome Vashon mural, or perhaps several mini-murals, will combine images from Vashon Allied Arts community quilts that have been created and raffled off for the past 30 years. She hopes the final product, a quilt-like mural of squares from the past decade that participants feel best represent the Island, will be one more thing to make both visitors and Island residents feel welcomed. “The images of Vashon are so incredible,� she said. “And the idea that everyone brings their own image and it creates a whole is a great metaphor of what Vashon is all about.� The Welcome Vashon Celebration will take place from 9 a.m. to noon Saturday at the Open Space for Arts & Community. A complementary breakfast and free childcare will be provided. For more information see www. welcomevashon.org or contact Dan Kaufman at dan@integralpotential.com.

4QJDF3PVUFDMPTFT  OFXFBUFSZUPPQFO After a four-year effort, the owners of Spice Route quietly closed their Indian restaurant this week, saying they just didn’t have enough customers to keep it open any longer. Jaskaran Singh, who managed the restaurant on his family’s behalf, said Wednesday night, “We’re not getting the business.� The owners, who operate a bustling Indian restaurant on Bainbridge Island, “did our best,� he added. One day every month, they’ve offered up half of their proceeds to various nonprofit organizations, from the Vashon Island Schools Foundation to Vashon Youth & Family Services. All told, Singh said, the business donated more than $20,000 to the community. “But the community didn’t support us,� he said. “It’s always just like this,� he added, looking around the colorfully appointed but near-empty restaurant. “We’re losing money.� The restaurant’s last night was Wednesday. Matt Bergman, who owns the building that houses the Spice Route, said a new enterprise is taking on the restaurant’s lease. Like the Spice Route, the new eatery will offer Indian food, he said, but the menu will also include Western-style items. A greater emphasis will also be placed on the bar, he said. The new owners plan to undertake some renovations and will open in late September, Bergman said. Debi Richards, executive director of the Vashon Island Chamber of Commerce, said she was sorry to see the Spice Route close.

Jaskaran Singh serves a patron on the eatery’s last night. “I believe they reached out and tried very hard to connect with the community. It’s sad and unfortunate that it was not reciprocated,� she said. “There were a lot of people who did support them, but it wasn’t enough.� On Wednesday, some said they were sad to see the restaurant close its doors. Amber Matusky was there with her 6-year-old daughter Natalia, who chose the restaurant as the place she wanted to eat at that night to celebrate her first day of school. And Marita Erickson, as she walked in the door and was escorted to a table, turned to Singh and asked, “Is there anything we can do to change your mind? We’re going to miss you.� — Leslie Brown

Undercover teens bought tobacco from three of the four Vashon retailers subjected to a routine sting operation earlier this year, alarming health officials who say it’s the first time in years so many Vashon vendors have failed to pass the unannounced inspections. The state Liquor Control Board hires teens who visit Vashon about once a year, said Scott Neal, the tobacco prevention program manager for Public Health – Seattle & King County. Between 2006 and 2009, no retailers failed the inspection; last year one did, he said. Health officials were troubled to see such a high failure rate during this spring’s sweep, Neal said. “It’s definitely concerning. We’re not going in the right direction,� he said. The four stores that were checked were the Vashon Market, the Vashon Mart at the Chevron Station, Mom’s Deli and Harbor Mercantile in Burton. Only Harbor Mercantile did not sell tobacco to underage teens, according to the health department. The three stores that sold to teens face $100 fines. The clerks are fined $50. Joe Aubry, manager of the Vashon Market, the IGA store on 100th Avenue S.W., called the store’s sale to minors “an unfortunate situation.� “We’ve corrected it and retrained our checkers, and we hopefully won’t have any more issues,� he said. At Mom’s Deli, manager Diane Garcia said the store is also attempting to address the problem.

Did you know?

The side of the tongue is the most common site for oral cancer. If you ever notice a white or red patch or a growth on the side of the tongue or floor of the mouth that does not resolve in two weeks, it is important to get it checked by a dentist as soon as possible. Usually, no treatment is required but occasionally the dentist will order a biopsy to diagnose the lesion. Smoking and drinking continue to be the most significant risk factors for oral cancer especially when done simultaneously. Alcohol is thought to make cells more susceptible to genetic damage from smoking which can trigger uncontrolled cell growth and subsequent oral cancer. Also, for all those Vashon gardeners, oral cancer can appear on the border of the lips due to sun exposure so it is a good idea to wear chapstick with an SPF rating.

“We are talking to the kids who work here and stressing that they have to be more consistent at looking at the ID and checking the dates. It happens and it shouldn’t,� she said. Neal said the health department focuses on tobacco sales to minors not only because it’s against the law but also because research shows that tobacco addiction most often starts in youth. “Eighty to 90 percent of adult smokers started as teenagers,� he said. Washington, like many states in the country, has worked to curtail youth smoking, using money from the large settlement with the tobacco industry in 1998 to fund campaigns aimed at teenagers. Neal said those campaigns have largely worked: 70,000 fewer young people are smoking in Washington, he said, and overall, the rate of youth tobacco use has fallen by half. But in the last three years, he said, money for the campaign has largely vanished and “progress has been stalled.� At the same time, he said, the tobacco industry continues to go after the youth market, creating products — such as cigars, cigarillos and snus (teabag-like pouches of tobacco) in flavors such as peach, chocolate, strawberry and grape — that are attractive to youth. “Tobacco use is still the number one cause of preventable deaths in the U.S. and in King County. There’s issue fatigue on the tobacco issue. But it’s still linked to more deaths than anything else,� he said. He said he hopes the sales on Vashon were a quirk, not a sign that retailers are growing lax. “A lot of times, it could be new staff or staff turnover,� he said.

Proposed pipeline is the wrong choice

A limited hunt at center forest might just work

Alberta’s tar sands are an ecological and cultural disaster

Closing Island Center Forest for a little more than two weeks for a limited deer hunt makes some sense. First, as several Islanders pointed out a year ago, the publicly owned forest, with its nine miles of well-maintained trails, is increasingly popular, and there’s really no safe way to allow hiking, biking and horseback riding to co-exist with hunting. The circuitous warren of trails could easily put a hunter and walker in close proximity without either knowing it, orange vest or not. “Multiple use� is a wonderful democratic concept, but not when one set of users is carrying firearms in a small semi-suburban setting. It would be inconvenient for the many Islanders who use the forest to stay out for a few weeks. But it may be the only way to make 4PNFIVOUFSTTBZ the concept of multiple use a realUIFZWFHJWFOVQPO ity at Island Center Forest. *TMBOE$FOUFS'PSFTU Second, and perhaps most imporOPUCFDBVTFPGUIF tantly, by shutting down the forest to all uses except hunting, King QBVDJUZPGEFFSCVU County managers might finally be CFDBVTFPGUIFIJHI able to determine if Island Center OVNCFSPGIVNBOT Forest is a place hunters are even interested in frequenting. Currently, it seems, very few hunters find the thickly forested, 360-acre expanse worth their time. Vashon hunters, for the most part, say they don’t bother with the county-owned woodland, since deer, as we all know, want to browse on the stuff we grow in our gardens and orchards — not Douglas fir and salal in a dense forest. Some hunters, however, say they’ve given up on Island Center Forest not because of the paucity of deer but because of the high number of humans. They could indeed bag a deer there, they say, but are uneasy about the prospect, worried they might drag out a dead animal just as an anti-hunting Islander comes along. Will hunters turn out if the rest of us stay away? A 17-day hunt — when the forest is closed to all other uses — might help county managers determine if that is indeed the case. Should the proposal go forward, we urge the county to make sure this is a pilot project with clear parameters. Public officials need to keep tabs on how many people actually choose to hunt in Island Center Forest, a number currently not available, and how many of those hunters actually take a deer. A few hunters have said they don’t want to see Island Center Forest closed to hunting in part for symbolic reasons. The forest stands as a last bastion of a way of life that is disappearing on Vashon, they note, the only public lands left on the Island where a hunter has access. But before the county decides to make a limited hunt an ongoing policy for Island Center Forest, closing the trail system to the dozens of walkers, bikers, runners and equestrians who regularly go there, policy makers need to know that the county-owned woodland holds more than nostalgia and symbolism for the region’s hunting community. This fall, should the county follow through on its recommendation and do so with care, we might find out.

fuel industrialization and “progress� for the rich. Oil development has made governments and corporations rich, yet the people still suffer. Rich or poor, those of us in the United States have benefitted from this devastation. It is time to use our power to stop further extraction destruction from projects like the Keystone XL pipeline. I also realize that a certain amount of hypocrisy exists when I chose to fly across the country to protest oil development. Yet the climate movement cannot be strong unless people show up. A large and growing number of people from around the world act out every day in opposition to an unjust system that rewards corporate power over basic human rights. I hope that adding my voice to growing resistance around the world boosts all movements. When I voted for Barack Obama in 2008, I thought I was voting for a man who was on my team. A team that believes we can invest in the future of the economy and Earth at the same time. That corporations have ruled in D.C. for too long and it is time for D.C. to work for Americans. That we have a duty to our children and grandchildren to begin to turn the tide against fossil fuels and rise with an innovative, sustainable way of life. When he accepted the Democratic nomination, Obama promised “the rise of the oceans would begin to slow and our planet begin to heal.� He has done little to live up that statement. I am truly disappointed with his environmental record, and I went to Washington to register my discontent. This country has a strong tradition of civil disobedience, dissent and resistance. Our democracy can’t exist without people standing up to our leaders demanding change. I have two young boys who are beginning to understand the unjust world we live in. It gets more and more difficult to explain our current way of life, knowing the harm it causes. I hope other Islanders will join me in the coming years as we as a community make changes in our current habits, advocate new ways of life and resist the power that keeps change from happening. — Jen Williams, a Vashon resident, recently climbed Mount Rainier as part of a protest against coal.

Creatures of the deep reveal their secrets Event provided rare opportunity to view sea animals up close On a recent bright but overcast Saturday, divers explored under the dock in Tramp Harbor, searching for critters to share with the visitors on the wooden deck above. Called “Who Lives Under the Dock?� it was another in a series of events organized by the Vashon Beach Naturalists to bring the public up close and personal to the interesting characters that live near and on our shores. We met a variety of creatures great and small, ornate and plain. Naturalists filled glass aquariums and created touch tanks out of plastic wading pools where visitors could explore the elements of habitat as well as living creatures. A favorite with the kids, the touch pools were filled with shells, seaweed, sea snails, sea stars, at least seven kinds of crab and the largest California sea cucumber any of us had ever seen. According to the field guide “Whelks to Whales,� they can grow as long as 20 inches, though it seemed to me that this one was even bigger. The California sea cucumber is common and harvested commercially by some Asian cultures that

NATURE By ADRIA MAGRATH consider it medicinal and a delicacy. Sea cucumbers are remarkable in that when they feel threatened, they can eviscerate themselves. Just like a lizard dropping its tail, sea cucumbers can empty their guts into the water to distract a predator. Although they certainly survive such a tactic, it can take about two to five weeks to re-grow their viscera. To avoid this, the naturalists encouraged gentleness towards the one the divers found. However, researchers have shown that these sea cucumbers in the wild will seasonally expel their entrails. Its nature’s version of the fall cleanse. On the other side of the size spectrum, the smallest creature found that day hitched a ride on some sand and shell fragments brought up from the bottom — a barnacle-eating dorid only millimeters long. Dorids are a type of nudibranch, or sea slug, that breathes through the feathery gills they wear on their back. They can be

colorful, like the yellow sea lemon, or speckled like the heath’s dorid, whose white body seems spotted with flakes of pepper. The few fishes that populated the glass aquariums got a lot of attention from visitors. A juvenile sole swam along the bottom of the tank, camouflaging well with the beach rock, sand and shell fragments. Like flounder, sole are flat fish with both eyes on the same side of their head. An eel-like gunnel spent most of its time hiding near a barnacle-covered rock. But the most attractive animal award was won that day by the sailfin sculpin — an entrancing swimmer with a very tall, sail-like fin behind its head. This fish was a handsome little creature and only halfgrown at approximately 4 inches. Its scientific name is Nautichthys oculofasciatus; Nauti means sail, and oculofasciatus refers the dark band through its eye. When it swam, it undulated its shorter dorsal fin akin to a waving flag. Normally only observed by divers at night, this nocturnal fish is a popular aquarium species because it does well in captivity. We considered ourselves especially lucky to have met such a charming little fellow.

LETTERS TO THE EDITOR The arts

5XPUIFBUFST XPVMECFXFMDPNF I’m writing in response to Jim Garrison’s concerns, expressed in “New VHS design puts school in one structure� (Aug. 31) about building a new Vashon High School theater space at the same time Vashon Allied Arts is building its new facility. As a long-time participant in Vashon’s theater productions, both with Vashon High School and Drama Dock, I believe the two spaces are completely “in scale with what’s appropriate� for Vashon’s performing arts community right now. As more and more performing groups on the Island have begun to make use of the VHS space over the past number of years, the amount of time available to each production for rehearsals in the theater has dwindled beyond what

is reasonable. Last year for “Oklahoma� we had less than two weeks in the theater space to load in and rehearse with our set and get used to the theater we would be working in. The availability of two adequate theater spaces will hopefully do away with much of the stress of the yearly scheduling war, a single meeting when the community organizations get to schedule for the year, that takes place currently. While I recognize that the two theater spaces seem like a lot, I believe they will both be well used and offer more flexibility for Vashon’s numerous theater, dance and music organizations. — Calen Winn

Identification

4JNQMFTPMVUJPOJT BWBJMBCMFGPSTBGFUZ After reading the article about Marcella, “Woman’s bike accident underscores

need for ID� (Aug. 24), I wanted to share information about RoadID (www. roadid.com). Several years ago while training for a half marathon and running along the main highway, I worried about not having ID on me if struck by one of the cars whizzing by. I found RoadID and purchased an ID that attached to the laces of my running shoes. It gave me peace of mind to know that if I were injured, my wife would be contacted. This past year when I switched to Vibram running shoes, I switched to a wrist ID that is similar to the yellow Lance Armstrong bracelets. You have the option of having your information on the ID or an 800 number that first responders can call to get all of your information. It’s a pretty cheap way to carry your ID and get peace of mind. — Barb Rhoads-Weaver

Please return stolen furniture I hope the person who recently stole a chair and ottoman from our space in the Sheffield building remembers how it was acquired every time they see it. How low can you go? You may have thought since it was in storage, it had no value to us. In fact it is a very expensive italian import and the ottoman goes with a different chair that is in our home. We have lived on Vashon since 1990 and have never had a problem. You have stolen our furniture as well as our sense of well being. We want these items back.

These eight climbers recently attempted to climb Mount Rainier for Vashon Rotary’s Climb for Clean Water Campaign, which will help bring water systems to 8,000 people in 13 villages in Guatemala, including Vashon’s sister city, Santiago de Atitlan. The climb raised $25,000 for the project, according to Sam Collins, a former Islander who organized the climb. “While the climbers were instrumental to the success of this project, the real star of the show was the Vashon Rotary Club, which sponsored and supported this climb from the beginning,� Collins wrote in a recent email. “The Vashon Rotary’s motto is ‘We live on an island, we are part of the world.’� Two climbers had to stop short of the summit, including Islander Sue Carette, who said she was struck with altitude sickness at 11,200 feet, and the mountain said, “no further.� Donations to the clean water project will be accepted until Sept. 30. Islanders can donate at www.climbforcleanwater.org.

Sports talk: Catch up on Vashon’s athletic history It’s the last inning. Vashon-Maury Island Heritage Museum’s Sports Exhibit is slated to close on Sept. 25, but before it goes, curators Dick Warren and Jim Beattie, Jr. will give a talk fit for all sports enthusiasts at 7 p.m. Wednesday, Sept. 14, at the Land Trust Building. Warren and Beattie spent months combing the Island for era-invoking sports memorabilia, poured over school annuals and rummaged through personal photos from Island residents. Vashon sports history has never been so thoroughly chronicled, until now. There are photos on exhibit from Vashon’s basketball team circa 1918, a girl’s softball

team from 1925, wrestling photos with coach Don Lake from the 60s and more recent photos of sports teams, events and games. The exhibit covers more than 100 years of sports on the Island and includes uniforms, trophies, yearbooks, team pennants and more. Warren and Beattie will discuss the rich treasure of these artifacts. The public is invited to attend, participate in the dialogue with their own sports stories and enjoy the pageantry and traditions of our country’s national pastime. It’s everyone’s chance to connect through our history to the love of the game. — Verna Everitt

A fiery diva brings new passion to a French classic

By EUGENE CARLSON For The Beachcomber

I

t’s two weeks before opening night. In the empty high school auditorium, the cast of Vashon Opera’s production of “Carmen� has begun another lengthy rehearsal.

A few minutes into Act One, a pint-sized woman, barefoot with a voluptuous cascade of curly blonde hair, slithers quietly on stage from behind a curtain and begins to sing in a low, creamy contralto. It’s the “Habanera,� the signature aria for the character Carmen. One of those melodies that even people who have never been to an opera instantly recognize. And Jennifer Hines, who has flown from her home in New York to sing the title role of the high-spirited gypsy in the Vashon production, is making the most of it. In dark, languid tones, Hines sings about Carmen’s highly personal definition of love. She flirts with various males on stage. Then, to drive the point home, she plucks a soapy sponge from a pail and with head tossed back, slowly and sensuously squeezes rivulets of water over her bare shoulders. The answers to two questions are immediately obvious. Why puritanical Paris audiences were shocked to the core when “Carmen� debuted in 1875. And second, why more than a century later, composer Georges Bizet stands vindicated, with “Carmen� one of the most performed, and most revered, of all operas. It’s the Carmen factor. “Jennifer absolutely embodies the character,� says James Brown, who is both stage and music director for the Vashon production. “She shakes us out of our conception of how people behave. When she walks on stage, she absolutely transfixes the attention of the audience.� While supported by a veteran cast of Northwest opera performers, Hines is this production’s certified star. Her credits include New York’s Metropolitan Opera and appearances with opera companies and orchestras throughout the United States. Hines is singing here because of long-standing friendships with Vashon Opera’s artistic director Jennifer Krikawa and also with Brown, who heads the vocal studies and opera program at Pacific Lutheran University and has an active singing career as well. Hines and Brown were fellow students at New York’s Julliard School in the mid-1990s and performed together at the Aspen Music Festival. Hines, a Long Island, New York, native, knows the Northwest well. Seattle Opera helped jump start her career by selecting her in 1998 for its Young Artists program. Next May, Hines returns to sing the demanding role of Suzuki in Seattle Opera’s “Madama Butterfly.� As for Carmen, Hines has sung the role often and might be suspected of treating her Vashon appearance as a busman’s holiday. Absolutely not, she insisted in a discussion on a recent afternoon. For one thing, Hines says she relishes the opportunity to sing in small halls with the audience up close and personal. “You can actually see the twitch in someone’s face,� she says. “For a performer, that’s pretty special.� Equally important to Hines is the creative collaboration with Brown and Krikawa that makes this pro-

duction unusual in several respects. Traditionally, Carmen is portrayed as a tempestuous vamp who steals the heart of hapless Don JosĂŠ and then callously dumps him for the handsome and haughty bullfighter, Escamillo. He’s the guy who sings the famous “Toreador Song.â€? But Hines and Brown have conceived an equally valid interpretation that has the two leading characters in a genuine love match from beginning to end. Tenor Stephen Rumph, singing the role of Don JosĂŠ, likes the idea. Rumph thinks about this sort of thing a lot, since he’s also a music history professor at the University of Washington. “They’re inseparable,â€? he says of Carmen and JosĂŠ in the Vashon interpretation. “They’re soul mates.â€? Even in the death scene, one of the great finales in all of opera. “People will be weeping,â€? Hines predicts. Other out-of-the-ordinary aspects of this production: The opera is staged partially in the round. Forty chorus members sing their entire parts from the stands of a bullring. The action on stage is left almost entirely to the principal singers plus five Vashon High School students — Katherine Misel, Maeve Haselton, Mara Drape, Meg Sayre and Camille Kappelman — who have been given major dance roles by choreographer Christine Juarez, dance director at Vashon Allied Arts. “I asked them to smoke cigarettes (unlighted, to be sure), drink and fight on stage,â€? says Juarez of the young dancers. “It’s a stretch and they’re really maturing in this production.â€? There’s also a chorus of 13 street urchins, all Island children, who sing in French and mock the soldiers with their own parade. Finally, the music. Traditionally performed in opera houses with a full orchestra, Vashon’s small performance space dictated cutting the musicians to five: piano, violin, cello, trumpet and flute. This required Brown to re-orchestrate Bizet’s entire score for these five instruments. No small task. Hines’ thoughts as opening night nears? “I’ve sung Carmen 10 times, and I’ve honestly never seen it performed or interpreted with this kind of thought behind it. It’s pretty amazing.â€?

— Eugene Carlson is a former reporter, columnist and editor at The Wall Street Journal. He’s a chorus member in “Carmen.� “Carmen� will be performed at 8 p.m. Friday, Sept. 16, and 2:30 p.m. Sunday, Sept. 18, at the Vashon High School theater. Tickets, $32, are on sale at www. vashonopera.org and at local bookstores. A student/ family dress rehearsal will be at 7 p.m. Wednesday, Sept. 14. Tickets for the rehearsal are $15.

Vashon chorale will join national effort to commemorate 9/11 attacks The concert will include other activities that pay homage to the 10th anniversary of 9/11 By ELIZABETH SHEPHERD Arts Editor

Nearly 100 local singers and musicians will be joined by a constellation of regional opera stars to perform the Mozart “Requiem� this Sunday in the Vashon High School gymnasium. The concert, conducted by Vashon Island Chorale’s artistic director Gary Cannon, is part of a national effort called the “Rolling Requiem.� At least five other Seattlearea choral groups will also sing the Mozart “Requiem� that day to commemorate the 10-year anniversary of 9/11. Performers on Vashon will include the 80-voice strong Vashon Island Chorale and a full orchestra assembled by Islanders Karin Choo and Vince Young. Solists will include Jennifer Krikawa, Julia West, Jim Brown and Jonathan Silvia, all of whom are involved in Vashon Opera’s current production of “Carmen.� “It was very fortuitous that ‘Carmen’ rehearsals were going on,� said Cannon. “We’re so grateful that everyone is donating their time for the event.�

When asked what made Mozart’s requiem so appropriate for the occasion, Cannon paused before replying. “That is a question for the ages,� he said. “There are certainly a lot of brilliant requiems that have been written, but I don’t think any of the others have the global reach the Mozart one does. He died while he was writing it, so maybe that spiritual element behind it makes it a little more touching to the whole world. It’s a masterpiece, and to my mind that is reason enough.� Several prominent Islanders will also play roles at the event. Local architect Craig Hanson has designed a large painted backdrop of a dramatic cloudscape for the event, and his wife, Vashon High School principal Susan Hanson, will welcome the community with remarks prior to the concert. Vashon fire chief Hank Lipe will read “The Names,� a poem written by Billy Collins, the country’s Poet Laureate from 2001 to 2003. Collins penned his poem on the first anniversary of the attacks. Lipe will also bring a piece of steel salvaged from the wreckage of the World Trade Center to the concert. The piece of steel — which was given to Vashon Island Fire & Rescue (VIFR) by the Port Authority of New York and New Jersey — will eventually be incorporated into a 9/11 memorial being planned for in front of VIFR’s main station on Bank Road. Several community members,

VIFR had hoped to present the memorial on the anniversary of 9/11, but will instead present the piece of steel at the memorial concert. According to Susan Hanson, who will also sing with the chorale that day, the concert is a chance for the community to reflect on the day’s meaning. “I think it’s important on this 10th anniversary that we take a pause and remember the innocent victims and remember those heroes — firemen, policemen and private citizens who lost their lives — that we remember the names and we make a commitment that we’re going to create a world where violence is not acceptable,� she said. The chorale’s performance of Mozart’s ‘Requiem’ will take place at 3 p.m. Sunday at the Vashon High School gym. The concert is free, but donations may be given to the Vashon Schools Foundation.

Joey Mayorkinos, right, and Cody Plancich work to put out flames at the home on Wednesday.

But we feel ... grateful and moved by the support,� he added. The couple’s two oldest sons, Elan, 16, and Brennan, 11, had already left for school — the first day of the new school year — when Lisbeth looked out the kitchen window and saw smoke billowing out of the garage. Wearing only her bathrobe, she quickly got her two other boys — Josiah, 7, and Soren, 4 — out of the house, backed the family car out of the garage and called 911. By the time Josh Munger, a captain at Vashon Island Fire & Rescue, showed up with the

first engine, he encountered what he described as a huge wall of flames. A large crew of both career and volunteer firefighters spent the next few hours battling the blaze, a fire that former fire chief Mike Kirk called “cantankerous� in light of how hard it was to quell. “It’s hard to get at the seat of it because it spread so fast,� he said at the scene Wednesday morning, stripping off his spent oxygen tank. The effort to douse the blaze was dramatic at times. The fire appeared to be nearly out at the blackened shell of a house when a red-orange glow appeared from an inner hallway that firefighters couldn’t easily reach. Concerned that the roof might collapse, firefighters

opted not to enter the home to put out the remaining blaze and instead cut an opening into the exterior wall of the house to get at it. They also used a ladder that gave them access to a broken-out window, hosing the fire that way. When the blaze burst through the roof, VIFR Chief Hank Lipe said it would make the final firefighting easier. “It’s actually beneficial,� he said, as he watched firefighters turn their hoses on the roof. “What we’re trying to do is save the integrity of the downstairs, because they have stuff down there.� Ironically, Peterson was among those called to the blaze. A dispatcher with PSE called him and his coworker to “de-energize�

the house because of the fire. By that time, Peterson said, he had already heard from his wife and thus told the dispatcher it was his house that was ablaze. The dispatcher could hardly believe it, Peterson said. “It was almost comical at first,� he said. But in fact, the family is still in a state of shock about how their lives have turned upside down. There’s also some heartache: Their cat and guinea pig survived the fire, but their dog did not. But with the help of friends, neighbors and strangers, they’re getting back on their feet, he said. The property manager who rented the home to them was able to find a furnished rental in Dockton — and even transferred their September rent to cover the cost of a month at the new place, Peterson said. Clothes have poured in, as have groceries and other goods, he said. What’s more, because of the property manager’s insistence, the Petersons had rental insurance. Peterson balked at her requirement, he recalled. “Now, I should kiss her feet,� he said. Meanwhile, their three school-age kids got off to school Thursday. And their 4-year-old, he added, was doing somersaults. “They seem to be doing remarkably well,� he said of his four boys. The family has plenty of clothes but could still use financial help.

A community square dance will take over Vashon town on Saturday Music and dancing will fill the streets of downtown Vashon on Saturday, when the Big Square Street Dance takes center stage. The late afternoon and evening will include three bands, square dancing and swing dancing, while Island businesses stay open late and restaurants have the opportunity to offer outdoor cafes. The event, a program of the Vashon Maury Island Chamber of Commerce sponsored by several Island businesses, is the brainchild of Islander Gib Dammann, who thought Islanders would enjoy and support such an event. “It is an excuse for the community to come out and have fun,� he said. “The idea is to throw a free event on probably one of the last weekends that’s dry and have an end-of-summer party.� Dammann grew up in Charlottesville,

Va., a city, he said, that has one of the few successful pedestrian malls in the United States and is home to a variety of street dances and concerts, which benefit the residents of the community and its businesses. The benefit to businesses is key to Vashon’s event, according to Debi Richards, the executive director of the chamber of commerce. “I really want the community to know this is more than just a good time,� she said. As summer ends and fall visitors head home, Richards said that it’s particularly important for Islanders to support their local businesses. Local dollars in the offseason, she added, are critical. “A dollar spent at a locally owned store is usually spent six to 15 times before it leaves the community,� Richards said. “From $1, you create $5 to $14 in value within that

community.� A lot of thought has gone into the planning of this event, Richards added. “Each new thing we do is an experiment, and we need to be careful because what we are experimenting with is the profitability of these businesses,� she said. Dammann is enthusiastic about the gathering, having served as an organizer and band member in Rotary’s CiderFest square dances in recent years. Festivities will begin at 4 p.m. when Island band Poultry in Motion with caller Eddie Harry will provide the music and instructions for two hours of square dancing. Harry, considered the premier caller in the Northwest, has visited Vashon three times to call square dances, Dammann noted. He will teach novices the basics of the dances and take things slow for a bit so

MARKET CONTINUED FROM 1

after she couldn’t find an on-Island one — a move that angered some market loyalists, who say only Vashon products should be sold there. The honey producer left earlier this summer after failing to draw enough business. And just this week, she brought East-West Roadside Produce into the fold, ending a long-standing division that began seven years ago, when East-West — unable to sell at the market because of VIGA’s bylaws — started selling produce in front of The Hardware Store Restaurant. East-West will continue to sell its goods in front of the restaurant, but it will now have a stand at the farmers market as well. “Allison has done a great job of growing the whole market,� said Rob Peterson, owner of Plum Forest Farm, a fixture at the market. “She’s been a very upbeat and positive presence.� Hedy Anderson, who sells six kinds of hand-crafted caramels every week, said she considers Bockus a leader and mentor. Bockus has worked well with her, she noted, providing marketing advice as well as a remarkable amount of support — charting her sale numbers, for instance, and sending her notes of encouragement. “She’s a great marketer, and she’s good with people,� Anderson said. “She’s brought a lot of life to the market.� This season, however, marks Bockus’ last at the market.

Rebecca Wittman peers into a pot while Allison Bockus checks the food’s temperature, a food safety procedure. She and her family are headed to Costa Rica this winter for a year abroad. And Saturday, as she showed Wittman the ropes, walking her through the many steps of managing the bustling place, she noted that Wittman will now be the one charged with taking the market to the next level. The next challenge? More customers, said Bockus. While the market has grown — customer counts have

that all people can take part. Once the square dancing is complete, The Magpies will play folk and cowboy tunes, and then at 7 p.m. Vashon’s Portage Fill Big Band will offer two hours of big band music for evening dancing in the street. The stage will be a flatbed truck in front of Movie Magic, Dammann noted, and the main highway will be closed from Bank Road to Movie Magic from 3 to 10 p.m. While the event is free, Dammann said donations to pay the musicians will be accepted. And while some square dancing events draw people festively dressed for the occasion, Dammann said there is no need for special attire, but added, “If you feel like it’s a bobby socks event, then go ahead.� — Susan Riemer

gone up as well as sales — the market averages around 400 to 500 customers a week, half of whom, Bockus believes, are tourists. On an Island with a population of around 11,000, she said, that’s a thin amount of support. “The market’s running beautifully. We have fabulous vendors. The next challenge will be to get Islanders to support this Island treasure that we have,� she said. Wittman, like Bockus, has a background in marketing and retail. Bockus and her husband owned a garden retail store in Seattle, Herban Pottery & Patio, which they closed a few years ago to spend more time as a family. Wittman, a former real estate agent, has been involved in the textile industry; she’s also played a high-profile role on Vashon, implementing the Vashon-Maury Island Heritage Association’s marketing campaign and curating its exhibit on K2. Vendors say they believe Wittman has many of Bockus’ qualities; she, too, some noted, is energetic, professional, organized and enthusiastic. What’s more, she has a profound appreciation of Island history — a history rooted, in part, in agriculture. “I’m really excited about Rebecca. She has a vision for the market that connects it to its agrarian ... history,� said Joe Yarkin, who runs Sun Island Farm with his wife Celina. “That’s my interest, too. I love the history.� As for Wittman, she notes she has big shoes to fill. But she also said she’s thrilled to be taking on a position that seems to be at the heart of Island life. “I feel like a kid who has gone to summer camp and found all my people there,� she said Saturday as she took in the lively scene. “I feel so welcomed and embraced. It just inspires all kinds of courage and ideas.�

Pirates fight hard, but lose opener to Goats By RIK FORSCHMIEDT For The Beachcomber

The Vashon Pirates opened the football season Friday with a 40-6 loss to the Chelan Goats, a top-ranked 1A team. The out-manned and mostly young Pirates, with the help of some costly penalties against Chelan, kept the visitors out of the end zone for more than seven minutes, when the Goats pushed through from the four-yard line for their first touchdown. Vashon was able to move the ball against the Goats but couldn’t get close to the end zone. After punting to the Chelan four, Vashon held the Goats inside the 12 until the end of the first period. Four long penalties against the visitors on the drive brought the ball back each time they broke loose. Sophomore Garrett Starr and freshman Ezra Ende came up with a play that should go on the season highlight reel when they knocked the ball out of Chelan senior Matt Peterson’s hands on a long pass play just before the end of the period. The Goats recovered in the second period and scored three more running touchdowns before the half. Chelan ran for one more touchdown early in the third quarter before starting to sub in the reserves. They added another early in the final period. The Pirates got on the scoreboard with 1:49 left in the game when sophomore quarterback Nick Amundsen connected with Starr for a 45-yard pass play and a touchdown. The Pirates had 19 of their 22 players on the roster suited up for the game, while the Goats had 38 on the roster with probably 33 dressed and playing. Many of the Pirates played virtually every down both on offense and defense, yet they were still able to move the ball against the visitors and shut down any passing game the Goats attempted. Pirate coach Clay Eastly said he was pleased with the team’s efforts against Chelan, one of the top five 1A teams in the state. “I thought they played hard and played

Sophomore quarterback Nick Amundsen, 3, is pursued by a herd of Goats as he runs for a healthy gain in the second quarter. hard till the end,� he said. The team is young this year, Eastly noted. After losing 18 graduating seniors last year and having an abundance of sophomores turn out this season, the roster has just four seniors and five juniors, several of them firsttime players. “Out goal is to improve every day and improve week by week, to get better every practice,� Eastly said. The Pirates travel to Lakeside in Seattle for a 4 p.m. game on Friday. The next home game is Friday, Sept. 23, when top-ranked defending state champion Cascade Christian comes to the Island.

Rowing club to hold extreme bike ride The Vashon Island Rowing Club (VIRC), will hold its first annual bike ride with a twist on Saturday, Sept. 17. The strenuous, 75-mile ride, called Passport to Pain, is not for the novice rider. The route connects 18 of Vashon’s must brutal hills, giving riders a total of 10,000 feet of vertical gain. Participants will be given a passport at the beginning of the ride, and at each hill they will earn a stamp at a designated checkpoint, as well as a $5 rebate on their $100 entry fee. Riders who complete the route will end up making a $10 donation to VIRC, while those who bail out sooner will make a more generous contribution to the club. For those intimidated by a 75-mile ride, there will also be 48-mile and 30-mile options. The event is not a timed race, and no T-shirts will be given. Proceeds from the ride will be split between VIRC’s junior rowing program and the Vashon Maury Community Food Bank. Bruce Morser, a master rower and the event organizer, said Passport to Pain offers a unique riding experience on Vashon, and he believes it could grow into a popular annual event both on the Island and in the Puget Sound region. “I think it has the potential of being a legendary ride,� he said. The ride will begin at Jensen Point, with riders starting in small groups between 8:30 and 9:30 a.m. The routes end back at the point, where a barbecue will begin at 2 p.m. Passports will be stamped until 4 p.m. For more information or to sign up, contact vashonp2p@gmail.com. Riders can register the day of the event. —Natalie Johnson

When it comes to purple martins, one man has made a difference By ANN SPIERS For The Beachcomber

Every rescue tale has a hero, and the large, dark swallows called purple martins have a cadre of volunteer heroes who have revived the bird species in the Northwest. Vashon’s local purple martin hero is Islander Rich Siegrist, who for 17 years has volunteered as “landlord� of the martins’ nesting boxes and gourds that hang on the dock pilings that circle Vashon and Maury. These nesting sites are the primary engine of the recovery. Seagrist said he was driven to help the species because of his fascination with the bird, “especially the martins’ desire to nest over the water.� “I spotted them (in 1993) down by Cove, so I thought we could provide them better housing,� he added. Indeed, the “better housing� prompted significantly more martins to nest around the Island and committed Siegrist to give over a portion of his life to these birds, building, hanging and keeping data on a total of 80-plus nesting boxes. Attracted by Siegrist’s boxes and gourds, Vashon’s martin population has risen steadily on the average. His data show that the highest years were 2004, when 72 nested in the boxes plus two pairs nested in the pilings, for 74 total. In 2005, 72 pairs nested in the boxes plus four pairs nested in the pilings for 76 total. Some years, the numbers drop to the low 30s, most likely due to late springs and cool summers when the insects, the martins’ main food, fail to hatch and fly, ornithologists believe. Siegrist will present his story and nesting data as part of a panel on purple martins and their recovery on Vashon, which will be held on Thursday, Sept. 15. (See box.) Western purple martins are

Western Washington’s largest swallows, slightly smaller than robins. They are blackish purple. The male is dark bellied, unlike the lighter coloring of the other local swallows. The female’s underside is grey. When soaring for insects, usually above an open space or wetland, martins fly higher than other swallow species. Their call is a liquid gurgle ending with guttural notes. Purple martins are a candidate for listing as a state-threatened or endangered species. In the past 200 years, the martin numbers have had lows and highs in Puget Sound. “Birds of Washington State,� a reference detailing the state’s 483 bird species, outlines the martins’ local history. In the late 1700s into the 1800s, martins are seldom, if at all, mentioned in bird lists compiled by pioneering naturalists. A few martins were noted in natural nesting sites such as tree snags. However, after American settlement in the early 1900s, martin numbers increased dramatically. By the 1940s, their numbers rose to 7,000 to 12,500 in Seattle alone. The population increase is attributed to changes in landscape and in building practices. As the forests were logged, breeding pairs found foraging sites in the newly opened meadows and wetlands as flying insects proliferated in those ecosystems. Fish-processing and lumber wharves provided new nest sites in the structures’ wooden posts and planks. Dock pilings filled river banks and shorelines and were subsequently abandoned, opening nest sites, as the oyster, salmon, and lumber industries boomed and imploded. To this day, these pilings, being over water, provide sites, protected from predators such as raccoons and foxes. Even derelict wooden sailing ships, abandoned by

Rich Siegrist has spent years providing nesting sites for Vashon’s purple martins. the hundreds after steam power replaced wind power, made suitable nest sites. Other manmade structures supplied crevices or rot pockets for nesting. In the 1970s, the martins’ numbers shifted again, plummeting dramatically. Seattle’s 7,000 to 12,500 martins counted in the 1940s were reduced to the “last nesting pair� observed at Seattle’s downtown Bon Marche (now Macy’s) parking garage. However, natural nesters (i.e. in snags and other tree holes) continued to migrate back each spring in small numbers. Natural areas on Fort Lewis retained a remnant population. References list the causes of decline as lack of nesting sites (building construction was tighter), spraying or filling of insectproducing wetlands, removing snags as part of clear cutting forests and the arrival of socalled nest usurpers, such as the

European starling and the house sparrow. Then in the mid 1990s, heroes such as Siegrist emerged to provide housing for martin nests and facilitate their recovery. From the Columbia River to British Columbia, the majority of nests have human landlords. The late Kevin Li, a state fisheries biologist, led this wider recovery, involving volunteers from Lower Columbia River, Puget Sound, Hood Canal and British Columbia. By 2005, the estimated state population increased to 600 nesting pairs, mostly in human-tended nest sites. In 2006, the state’s efforts to clean up Puget Sound included removal of creosote pilings, the martin’s primary nesting sites. In 2007, members of Vashon Audubon met with state workers, asking that Vashon’s Mosquito Fleet and other relic pilings not be removed. Audubon argued that

nual 46 AnMukilteo

the pilings had ecological value as martin nest sites that outweighed the threat of creosote contamination, its toxins possibly reduced by the pilings’ weathering. The state modified the pilingremoval proposal for Vashon and Maury when Siegrist stepped forward with his binders full of data that outline the successful recovery of Vashon’s purple martins. — Ann Spiers is a Vashon poet and naturalist. Rich Siegrist will present his story and nesting data as part of a panel discussion, “Purple Martin’s Amazing Recovery: A Vashon Island Tale of Success.� Joining him will be local naturalist Ann Spiers and master birder Alan Huggins. Sponsored by the Vashon Audubon Society, the program is free and open to the public. It will be held at the Land Trust Building at 7 p.m. Thursday, Sept. 15.

Kimmet said hunters made it clear they wished to continue hunting at Island Center Forest, which has historically been the only public land on Vashon where hunting is allowed. Many non-hunters, however, felt it simply wasn’t safe to allow hunting in the thick, low visibility forest, which holds nine miles of trails. Kimmet said he thinks allowing hunting during a short time when no other users would be permitted in the area is a good compromise. “We think this proposal addresses all that input, both from hunters and nonhunters,â€? he said. A two-week public comment period on the proposal will begin this week, after which the county will make a final decision on whether to implement the shortened hunting season. Lou Fezio, a long-time Islander who walks his dogs at Island Center Forest several times a week, was surprised at the proposal. However, he said, being banned from the area during a brief hunting season made sense for public safety and would only be an inconvenience to him. “I wouldn’t like it, but it wouldn’t be the end of the world,â€? he said. “It’s only two weeks. I’ll go somewhere else.â€? Fezio, who attends Friends of Island Center Forest meetings, did, however, question the logic of devoting half the month to deer hunting in the forest. He rarely saw hunters there while it was allowed, he said. “I’ve heard several times now that very few people hunt there. ‌ I’ll want to get more facts,â€? he said. Stephen Holtz, a Vashon equestrian and the King County Parks ambassador to Island Center Forest, agreed, saying it didn’t make sense to close the forest for hunting when so many people use it for other activities. “The amount of hunting that actually takes place is way less than other activities,â€? he said. “In sheer numbers it is not equitable.â€? Holtz, who is also a Friend of Island Center Forest, said he has long hoped the county would find a way for hunters and other users to safely share the forest, but didn’t think the current proposal was a good idea. “I was in favor of somehow allowing hunting in Island Center Forest, but not at the expense of closing it down

to all the other activities,� he said. “I don’t want to sound like I’m shooting the project down, but with the number of people that use it every day, to deny that access I think it pretty drastic.� Kimmet emphasized that the shortened hunting season would be a pilot program. He said volunteers stationed at the site would ask hunters to voluntarily register so the county could track how many hunters take advantage of the season and how many deer are killed during the 17 days. “Part of our evaluation is to see how much use this will get during two weeks,� he said. “We’re hoping people will give this a chance, and we’ll evaluate the success.� Under King County code, guns cannot be fired within 500 feet of buildings. To help assure hunters stay clear of homes — a concern those who live near the forest have raised — the county will provide extra maps of forest boundaries at park entrances. In addition, Kimmet said, by the time the hunting season starts, the county will have installed large maps of the forest that show where homes are located. Hunting would not be allowed at the 81-acre natural area within the boundaries of the forest, as it carries a designation that allows for only low-

impact use. Brad Shride, an avid hunter and member of the Sportsmen’s Club, agreed that Islanders don’t frequently hunt at Island Center Forest. Many avoid it, he thinks, in part because the forests’ low visibility and sparse deer population can make for difficult hunting. However, Shride said, he also thinks some hunters avoid the forest because they know so many people use the trails there. “They don’t want to be somewhere where there’s going to be conflict ‌ and most of them don’t want to be in a place to possibly put someone in harm’s way,â€? he said. Shride liked the idea of a shortened hunting season at the forest. “I think a few more will use it, knowing that some of the pedestrians will be out of there and it will be more of a quiet atmosphere. ‌ I think it’s a great thing if everyone could share the same thing.â€?

He also attended Seattle University where in 1968 he received a bachelor’s degree in Commercial Science. Ivan lived in a wheelchair from the time he was 18 due to polio. However that never slowed him down. He was a very independent man. Ivan loved to fiddle with things and his true passion was working on cars, he restored two beautiful Trans Ams, which he loved so much. Survivors include many close friends and neighbors including the Alberthal family Jason, Denise and their three sons Colton, Michael and Jayce. He also leaves behind his faithful dog Dexter and his cat Jenny. Per Ivan’s wishes there will be no service. Donations in Ivan’s name can be made to Vashon Pet Protectors.

• Mavis Corkery Kallsen • William Corkery was the great Aberdeen logger who, when proclaiming that “You bait your own hookâ€?, was probably referring to spar poles and log skidders. Alice Corkery was an erudite scholar who may have stretched Polonius’ instructions when she said, “To thine own self be trueâ€?. Mavis Corkery Kallsen and her elder sisters Beulah, Clare, and Merle all learned those tenets well, and each kid grew up knowing she was born special. Mavis never forgot that. Her childhood family divided their time between the industrial frontier of Aberdeen, the city house on Capitol Hill, and their beach place at Burton. When her father died, Mavis’ family moved to Montrose California, but they continued to spend their summers on Vashon Island. Perhaps in response to her delicate health as a child, Mavis built a robust constitution that ran on indomitable spirit and carried her nearly all the way through her eighty-eighth year. She met Robert August Kallsen at the University of Washington, and each knew they’d found their prize catch. Their first date was spent under a table, discussing philosophy ‌ whatever. Separated by busy schedules, Mavis dropped a hint about“another manâ€?. Robert immediately issued his now famous “Stop! (stop) Stop! (stop) Stop! (stop)â€? telegram, hopped a plane, proposed marriage, and became known as “Popâ€? for ever after. Mavis accompanied Pop to his home state of Minnesota, so he could build a small-town medical practice. This went fine as summer rolled into autumn, but then the first snow fell and she slid her car into a ditch. She piled the kids on a train and headed west, pausing only to call and invite her husband along. Pop, like any of us, would follow her anywhere. When the family arrived in Washington, Mavis brought her networking talents to bear with the Junior League of Tacoma. She was a born fund-raiser who could work the phones with the passion and persistence of an evangelist. Her tireless efforts created the Camp Six Logging Exhibit in Point Defiance Park. She was an avid history buff, winning awards for her work while serving as the archivist for the Pierce County Medical Society. Her early years as an airline stewardess had left her with a travel-bug that she didn’t try to shake. She circled the globe, and entered China as soon as it opened up to the West. Through it all her true dedication was to Pop and his thriving medical practice. Mavis became a regular among the salmon fishermen off the Clay Banks at Point Defiance. She often fished solo, launching her own boat before daylight, baiting her own hook, cleaning her own fish. When she broadened her fishing grounds to include Canada and Alaska, she brought along her family as crew. She did not relinquish the title of Captain. “To thine own fish be trueâ€? – Mavis’ quarry never learned about catch-and-release; her barbless hooks stayed in the tackle box. She caught huge salmon, but never the singular lunker she sought. If Heaven truly gives us what our lives on earth withhold, then Mavis has now engaged that sixty-pound Tyee of her dreams. Mavis is survived by her balancing force, husband of sixty-five years Dr. Robert August Kallsen; children Clare Kallsen (Larry West), Phil (Peggy) Kallsen, Laurie George (Kinne Hawes), Ron Kallsen, and MaryAnne Kallsen (Michael DeBlasi); grandchildren Dawn (Holke) Mayer (Andy), Bob Roggenbuck (Katie), Shannon Kallsen, Melissa Kallsen, Robin Kallsen, Patrick George, Whitney George, Andy George, Steven George, Leonardo DeBlasi, and Vincenzo DeBlasi; great-grandchildren Jordan Novotny, Will Mayer, Eliza Mayer, Cade Roggenbuck, and Presley Roggenbuck. Would that all of us combined could muster half her pluck. A memorial service will be at 11:00 AM on Saturday, the Tenth of September, in the Old Saint Peter’s Church at 2910 North Starr Street in Tacoma, with reception to follow.

Cat shelter reopens for adoptions Vashon-Maury The Vashon Island Pet Protectors (VIPP) cat shelter, which closed for nearly three months to address a small ringworm outbreak, is now adopting cats by appointment only. VIPP hopes the shelter will be fully operational by Saturday, Sept. 24, said Geoff Fletcher, president of the animal rescue group. Fletcher said that although the shelter is likely ringworm free now, it will fully open once all the cats have tested negative for ringworm five times. He said that since three cats were discovered to have the disease in June, shelter volunteers have taken

extreme measures to prevent its spread and have tested cats more than the shelter standard of three times to assure the ringworm is gone. “We’ve been more successful than people expected because it didn’t spread beyond the three that were infected,� he said. Fletcher estimates that the ringworm outbreak cost VIPP about $3,500, including the cost of testing and medicating the cats. He said they hope to recoup some of the losses at VIPP’s annual Fur Ball in October. To make an appointment to adopt a cat at the shelter, email cats@vipp.org or call Terri Fletcher at 463-1979.

FYI DEATH

Ian Smith There will be a committal service for Ian Smith at noon on Sunday, Sept. 18, in the Memorial Garden of the Episcopal Church of the Holy Spirit.

Vashon is a unique rural environment in an otherwise developed regional landscape. There is nothing similar to this place for fifty miles in any direction: Vashon has pastoral areas similar to Lopez; there are wildly verdant rain forests reminiscent of coastal wilderness; there is little traffic (except when the ferry off loads), and people tend to say, “Hi,� to you, whether they know you or not. There are only two shopping malls (located in the town core) and no places where the houses are exactly like the next door neighbor’s. The reason for this is that the Island petitioned King County to be zoned rural in the early 1970’s, so in many regards, large-scale development froze at that point. Vashon has many happy secrets that are not apparent when you are shopping in stores on the one-block-long main street. To discover the wonderful hidden qualities that Vashon-Maury Island has to offer, contact Windermere Vashon, to speak to a real estate professional who understands everything from schools and septic systems to opera and metal artists. Enjoy the benefits of working with an agent who really knows Vashon!

4 year old Spruce is very handsome. He weighs in between 20 and 22 pounds on any given day. He loves to sit in my lap when he’s not sleeping on the back of the couch. He would like to be an only cat and would prefer an adult household. He gets over excited sometimes and bites when he’s done with you. Mostly, he’s a cat who needs a place where he can be himself.

Gloria is the dream pet for anyone looking for ONE cat for the household (she’s very snippy to most other cats, especially ones she didn’t grow up with) and we really prefer that she goes to someone who can promise to keep her indoors. The payback for that is that she is great at using the litter box, she doesn’t scratch the bedposts or claw the sofa. She is happiest when someone is either holding her or letting her snuggle on their lap, or when she’s just allowed to sit on a cozy chair and sleep away the day. She is currently available thru foster care.

BG (Baby Girl) is an eight-year old Jack Russell Terrier with a great personality. She would be an ideal dog for someone looking for extra companionship. BG almost never barks (except at motorcycles, loud trucks), and in general enjoys quietly resting near her owners. She loves the company of people, and loves nothing more than going on a walk a few times a day. When outside she is curious, very friendly with other dogs and cats (she loves big dogs), and in general is fun to be around. When inside she likes to rest, but prefers to do that close to the people in her life. She is very affectionate and loyal.
