The mess at Fauntleroy

Safety concerns mount at the busy ferry dock

A VISD error: Events slated to take place on Jewish high holidays

Last Thursday afternoon Washington State Ferries (WSF) worker Lisa Lennon stood on the sidewalk at the end of the Fauntleroy ferry dock directing thick commuter traffic through the tollbooths, a job that until this summer was filled by a Washington State Patrol cadet. In a move that caught commuters and even some lawmakers by surprise, state budget cuts in July forced the removal of the cadets who have directed traffic at both the tollbooths and the busy intersection at the end of the dock for years. Lennon — who was transferred from the Coleman dock in Seattle as part of WSF’s temporary solution for the loss of the cadets — used hand signals to quickly funnel drivers into the correct lanes. She sometimes pulled cars for certain ferries from farther up in the line and said that since the loss of the cadets, loading the boats seemed to go smoothly with her there during peak hours. Unloading, however, is a different story. On this same Thursday, without an officer to direct ferry traffic pulling onto Fauntleroy Avenue, the lines were long as drivers leaving the dock waited their turn to merge onto the sometimes busy street. Some drivers slipped quickly into the traffic; others hesitated, holding up the line. On one occasion, too many cars tried to crowd the intersection at once. One car quickly

ment period and would likely move forward with the plan within a few days. The hunting season would begin Oct. 15. Though few at the meeting spoke in direct support of the proposal, those in attendance were clearly divided on whether hunters and pedestrians could continue to share Island Center Forest as they have for years. The county’s plan was crafted after an increasing number of Islanders raised concerns last year about the risk hunters posed to pedestrians at

Vashon School District officials inadvertently scheduled significant public school events on two of the holiest days in the Jewish faith this fall, raising concern among Vashon’s small Jewish community and eliciting a pledge from the district that it won’t happen again. The district quickly rescheduled one of the events last week. Vashon High School’s homecoming dance, scheduled to take place on Saturday, Oct. 8, which is Yom Kippur this year, was moved up one week and will now take place Oct. 1. But the homecoming football game — a well-attended high school event that includes a halftime tradition involving hundreds of students — is still on Yom Kippur, which begins at sundown Friday, Oct. 7, and ends at sundown the following day. And the McMurray Middle School open house, when parents get an opportunity to meet their children’s teachers, will be held tonight during Rosh Hashanah, which begins at sundown and ends at sundown tomorrow. The mix-up was troubling to leaders in Vashon’s Jewish community, who note that the dates for these two holidays are identified on nearly every commercial calendar and are as sacred to Jews as Christmas and Easter are to Christians. “Rosh Hashanah and Yom Kippur are not obscure holidays,” said Matt Bergman, the father of a high school senior who won’t attend the homecoming football game because it falls on Yom Kippur. “I think it’s disrespectful

County gives tentative nod to shortened hunting season By NATALIE JOHNSON Staff Writer

King County officials say they will likely move forward with their proposal for a shortened hunting season at Island Center Forest, a plan that got mixed reviews at a public meeting last week. Today is the last day to comment on the proposal, which would allow hunting in the forest for 17 days next month, during which time it would be closed to all other uses. County officials say the proposal is based on a large

amount of feedback gathered last year and a thorough investigation into the impacts of the plan. David Kimmett, a county natural resources manager, said the 10 Islanders who spoke at last Tuesday’s meeting, which was attended by about two dozen people, mostly brought up concerns the county has already heard. “We’re confident (the plan) addresses all the concerns we heard, and it’s something we can implement,” he said. Kimmett said the county would review the comments made during the two-week com-

But since then, the property has been posted “no trespassing,� she said, and neither she nor her mother knew people were still walking onto their property to collect wood. “We’re not around, and people take liberties,� she said. David Warren, who heads Vashon Forest Stewards, a nonprofit organization that sustainably harvests trees on the Island, knows the Lombardys and is familiar with the property; he helped arrange the thinning operation a few years ago. He got a call Thursday from an Islander who said her renter at a house near the patch of woods, had been hearing chainsaws at the property for a couple of weeks and that it appeared someone had been killed. He decided to stop by; when he arrived, he said, he discovered three police cars at the site and was soon ushered in by a detective who wanted him to take a look at the situation. Warren said he plans to re-post “no trespassing� signs at the site for the Lombardys. It wasn’t clear to him how Noah was killed, he added, but it underscored for him how dangerous logging can be. “If anything, I hope people learn that lesson out of this,� he said.

Curt Noah, a Vashon man with deep roots on the Island, was killed Thursday in an accident that occurred while he was felling a tree in the woods off of Old Mill Road, according to his friends and family. Noah, 45, whose step-mother and brothers own Uptown Takeout, did an assortment of jobs for a living, including landscaping and tree-trimming. He also sold cords of woods on Vashon. He was in a 15-acre parcel Thursday afternoon, apparently cutting a tree for firewood, when a limb hit him on the head and killed him instantly, according to his father Rex Noah. It’s not yet clear how the accident happened, Rex Noah said. The sheriff’s department released few details, noting that an investigation into his death is still under way. Curt Noah, who went to Vashon High School, lived much of his life on Vashon and in Illinois. For many years he worked at what is now called the Vashon Golf & Swim Club, including one year when he was the greens keeper, his father said. He worked at other golf courses in the Seattle area as well. “A hard-working boy,� his father said, when asked to describe his son. “He’d always put more than he had to into things.� Ruben Arnot, who’s known Noah for years, called him a “solid guy� with a friendly attitude. “He had a good spirit,� he said. The property where Noah died is owned by a family in Billings, Mont., which had not given permission to anyone to cut wood

Math at McMurray: Teachers attempt some new approaches By NATALIE JOHNSON Staff Reporter

As concerns grow about Vashon High Schoolers’ struggles with math, teachers at McMurray Middle School are spearheading programs they hope will better prepare their students for the rigors of high school math. The new programs come as the middle school adopts the national math standards and works to assure that all students are proficient in basic math skills before entering high school. Following the state’s

adoption of the national math standards in July, McMurray math teachers spent the summer piecing together curriculum to assure that their classes meet the new standards — a requirement the district must meet by 2013 — and will adequately prepare students for their high school classes. “I’m actually teaching one step of algebra in sixth grade now,â€? said McMurray math teacher Jenny Granum. “We’ve increased our standards and expectations to prepare kids for algebra. ‌

We have to step it up to make sure every kid can graduate high school.� And as the teachers push their middle schoolers to learn a little bit more before high school, they’re also getting ready to begin two supplementary programs — one they believe will assure all students are proficient in basic math skills and one they hope will give them a deeper understanding of concepts through realworld application. Beginning next month, all middle schoolers will spend one math period a week doing individual work on small laptops. They’ll work with the much-hailed Kahn Academy, an interactive Internet program recently featured in “The Economist,� which suggested the new online program could become the math and science education tool of the future. The students will take computer quizzes on the Kahn Academy site, and the program, which can assess each student’s strengths and weaknesses, will then give them lessons in specific concepts. Quiz results are delivered in real time to the teacher, who will spend the period

middle school’s state test scores — almost 80 percent of eighth graders passed the state test last year, compared with 50 percent statewide — he’s pleased the Kahn Academy will help to meet each student’s needs. “We are significantly better than the state (scores),â€? Allison said. “That’s not to say we don’t want to improve. We’re always looking to help every kid become better math students.â€? Following a national trend, Vashon students’ math scores have consistently dropped when they were tested again their sophomore year of high school. Last year 67 percent of Vashon 10th graders passed the national test, compared with 41 percent nationwide. Roxanne Lyons, director of instructional services at the school district, said that concern about math at the school district began to grow a little over a year ago, after high school teachers noticed that many students either didn’t have their basic math skills down or couldn’t solve simple math problems as easily as they should have. “Our teachers were finding that our students could get the right answer, but not as fast as the teacher thought would benefit them in higher math at the high school. ‌ It would get in the way of bigger, more complicated concepts,â€? she said. Parents, too, noticed that many high schoolers seemed to struggle in math and often sought help outside the classroom from tutors. They brought up their concerns to at least one district “Let’s Talkâ€? meeting last winter. Lyons said the school district hopes that the Kahn Academy, which it is piloting this year, will help middle school students enter high school better prepared for their math classes. A few other classes at the middle and high school level are also trying out the program, which can take students through calculus

and includes other subject areas as well, Lyons said. Middle school math teachers could more easily work the program into their schedules this year, she said, as they are required to cover fewer concepts than the more rigorous high school classes. But if it’s successful, she said, the Kahn Academy could one day be used in high school math and science classes as well. “The district is very interested and curious to see how well it works,� Lyons said. “I think we’re going to find applications in many ways we haven’t imagined yet.� The school district received a $10,000 grant from Washington STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering and Math) to cover the extra teacher work hours required by the Kahn Academy as well as another new program to be implemented in the spring. Granum, who is heading the second project, will work with engineers involved in the construction of the new high school to develop construction-related math problems for the middle schoolers to work though. For example, Lyons said, students might calculate the angles of roofs or determine how many gallons of paint should be purchased for a specific building. They hope to even take students to the construction site for some problems. “The children who aren’t super engaged in math in the classroom, they don’t see it connecting with their lives,� Granum said. “Whenever they can make those connections and see how (math) is used in all areas and aspects, that’s a valuable tool.� Like the Kahn Academy, Lyons says, teachers are still determining how the program will fit into their classroom routine and grading. But she has high hopes for both new programs and praised what she called the innovation of the teachers who are making them a reality at the school. “They are taking the risk to try something we have good reason to believe will dramatically enhance our students’ math success and better prepare them for high school math,� she said.

PIE: A simple way to support our teachers

School district’s oversight is now an opportunity

Big issues have dominated Vashon’s public education narrative of late. Staggering budget cuts and failing facilities are two examples that come to mind. But this focus on big dollar problems has obscured the fact that education is an incremental process. Each child’s knowledge accrues one class, one discovery, one assignment and one experience at a time. And it’s our teachers who create and manage these micro learning opportunities. Isn’t there an effective, low-cost way to support them in this effort? As it turns out, there’s an unassuming organization that has been doing exactly this for 24 years now — Vashon Partners in Education, aka PIE. For many, PIE may be under the radar compared to other educational initiatives on the Island. But while PIE may work quietly, it works very effectively. The PIE model for improving Vashon public schools is simple. We solicit proposals for materials, projects and activities that will demonstrably enrich the educational experience. Most pro-

It’s a shame that the people left picking up the pieces of a scheduling error that placed homecoming on Yom Kippur are three or four seniors at Vashon High School. They’re the ones who are now scrambling, working fast and furiously to reschedule an event that takes place in a matter of days. At the same time, it’s unfortunate that the mistake even occurred. Yom Kippur is the holiest of days in the Jewish calendar, a day of atonement that brings millions of Jews, even those who are normally non-observant, to temples and synagogues around the world. Its significance has :PN,JQQVSJTUIFIPMJFTUPG deepened in the post-Holoyears. For many famiEBZTJOUIF+FXJTIDBMFOEBS  caust lies, it’s a time to remember BEBZPGBUPOFNFOUUIBU relatives who died in German CSJOHTNJMMJPOTPG+FXTUP death camps. As is so often the case in a UFNQMFTBOETZOBHPHVFT situation like this, no one realBSPVOEUIFXPSME ly is to blame. It was a simple oversight, due in part to the fact that Rosh Hashanah and Yom Kippur fall a little earlier on the Western calendar this year than they normally do. The Seattle School District proactively sends out a calendar to its 90 principals letting them know about the various religious holidays that their culturally diverse schools need to take into consideration. At our tiny school district, on our remarkably homogeneous Island, no such calendar gets mailed out. Many of us, from school administrators to journalists, were paying scant attention. Louise Olsen, president of Havurat Ee Shalom, says she hopes to address this situation. Borrowing a page from the Jewish Federation in Arizona, she’ll now send out a five-year list of the Jewish high holidays to the school district. She has also contacted some Jewish teachers at the public schools, who will likely use the scheduling error as fodder for class discussions. And while the issue put some Jewish families into an uncomfortable spot, it also provided an opportunity, some report, for probing and heartfelt discussions. Both Matt Bergman and Andrew Schwarz, observant Jews and members of the Havurat, have daughters who are seniors; both families talked in depth about the situation their families found themselves in. So too was the case for a handful of McMurray parents who won’t go to the middle school’s open house tonight because it’s Rosh Hashanah, another of the high holidays. Risa Stahl, one such parent, said the situation — and her personal dilemma about how to handle it — gave her an opportunity to talk to a neighbor about when to speak out in defense of cultural and religious diversity and when to stay quiet. Olsen often uses the phrase “bashert,� Yiddish for “it was meant to be,� when life unfolds imperfectly. And so she did last week, as she discussed the complexities surrounding the district’s scheduling mistake. “Maybe there’s a reason for this,� she said. “Maybe it will lead to increased awareness and sensitivity.� Meanwhile, we applaud those students who are working hard to move the homecoming dance up one week. We wish them a fantastic homecoming — one that many students will attend.

LETTERS TO THE EDITOR Drag racing

/FXTTUPSZCSPVHIU CBDLHSFBUNFNPSJFT Thanks for the great article on Wagons of Steel (“A homegrown team burns rubber at the strip,� Sept. 14). I’ve seen them race several times at drag strips on the West Coast. I came from a family of race car drivers. My dad raced streamliners at the Bonneville Salt Flats in Utah all his life. He broke speed records over and over. I spent many summers of my youth there and have fond memories. As a very little girl, I remember standing next to an old man getting ready to climb onto his rickety old motorcycle, which ended up shocking everyone by going over 200 mph. He was from New Zealand, Burt Munro, and a movie was recently made about his life, “The Fastest Indian,� staring Anthony Hopkins (a really good movie). The film captured the look and feel of that time in my life. The only thing

missing were all the kids running around. It was a family thing, and the people of Bonneville were a tight-knit group. Thanks for the story, and thanks for the memories! — Susan White

How unfortunate that the caller she describes became aware of our rare and beautiful native northern flying squirrel only after her cat dragged one that it had mortally wounded into her home. The native birds and wildlife that we share this remarkable island with are under great pres-

Instead, the goal is to experiment, break new ground, reach students in new and engaging ways and to rekindle teachers’ passion. PIE is not about copier paper and glue sticks.

sure from habitat loss, pesticide use and invasive species. To add further pressure from cat predation to this list is both tragic and unnecessary. Keeping cats indoors is not only kind to wildlife, but kind to cats, too. Indoor cats live on average three times longer than outdoor cats. They do not prey on vulnerable birds, squirrels, amphibians and other wildlife, and they do not get hit by cars, snatched by eagles or coyotes, or attacked by other cats, dogs and raccoons. The Audubon Society and the American Bird Conservancy have teamed up to create a national program called “Cats Indoors!� that is aimed at educating the public about the impact of outdoor cats on birds and wildlife. They estimate that each year in the U.S. free roaming cats kill more than 200 million birds and over a billion small mammals. Their website (http://web4.audubon. org/bird/cat/) also provides great information for people concerned -&55&34$0/5*/6& /&951"(&

5IFQSPHSBNIFMQFEJO TJHOJGJDBOUXBZT Four days before the start of the 2010-11 school year I was diagnosed with stage three ovarian cancer. I was in shock and facing an uncertain future. One of many dilemmas I faced was if I could make a commitment to The 2011 Blue Heron Student Exhibition. This is the student art show I have

produced every other year since 2001 in cooperation with the Blue Heron Gallery. By the end of September I had settled into my battle with cancer and had learned, among many other things about my disease, that making future plans was very important to my recovery. I made the commitment to my students and the Blue Heron. The show would go on no matter what! I worked throughout my chemotherapy, but had to take an extended break after my major surgery, so when January 2011 rolled around and I had only collected 20 pieces of student art for the show, I knew I had to step it up although I was still in chemotherapy and weighing in at under 100 pounds. Partners in Education (PIE) stepped up along with me and contributed a generous grant for the framing materials, which greatly reduced my stress over financing the show. Added stress was certainly something I did not need during my fight for survival. The art show happened and it was very successful and beautiful! I am cancer-free now and I sincerely thank PIE for being a part of my cure. — Amy Dubin Vashon Island High School art teacher

3FUIJOLJOHBOBSUTDFOUFSUIBUTFFNTPVUPGTDBMF I want to thank Steve Haworth for stretching our minds about the Oberlin Project and for others who have expressed their opinions about the two proposed arts facilities on our Island. After reading Steve’s columns, getting information about Vashon Allied Arts’ proposed arts center and learning more about the plans for the high school, I recognize the need for two facilities. But I want to express my concerns about building two similarly sized facilities and the siting of the VAA building. I believe the proposed VAA arts center is out of scale with both the location and the site. The VAA building, at a historic, small-scale intersection, will have a 450-foot frontage on Vashon Highway, walls 22 feet tall, a 48-foot peak to the roof and 100 parking places behind it. I believe a building and parking lot of this size are better located on the 100-acre high school campus, where they are compatible with the scale of buildings and associated hardscape. Not only would this provide opportunities for education and internships to students during the classroom day, but it would allow us to build two complimentary theaters — sized for both the large audiences VAA anticipates (10 times per year, according to data VAA submitted to Water District 19) and a smaller, more intimate venue. Having attended many Allied Arts performances and Drama Dock productions, it is clear that a small venue is desirable for many. This is the model Benoroya Hall has created — a space that can hold peak audiences and another smaller performance space sized for more intimate performances and for class use — the kind we have come to love at the Blue Heron. We have an enormously complex set of issues

Community supports the Vashon Food Bank with Luau Vashon Eagles Aerie #3144 would like to thank the entire community for all the support for our recent Luau and auction fundraiser. Thanks to your generosity, FOE 3144 is able to donate over $6000.00 to the Vashon Food Bank in time for the upcoming holidays!

Yet another significant contribution: On a second note, I would like to make an addition to last weeks article regarding the free dinners being provided to the homeless and needy of Vashon. For the last year and a half, the Eagles has sponsored the dinners of John and Kaia Fredrickson, who prepare and serve Monday nights dinner at the Village Green. Arlene Landers has worked every Monday night preparing delicious homemade dinners at the Eagles and the profits of these dinners go to pay for the food for the homeless dinners. John and Kaia come up with healthy, filling and yummy dinners for over 25 people each Monday. They provide to go containers as well, so everyone gets something to eat, even those that can’t stay to eat. John, Kaia and Arlene are deserving of a huge applause for their dedication and hard work!

Warm Thanks VYFS extends a warm thank you to those who helped create the PlaySpace, including Holly Zapel Design, Ed Palmer Construction, GroundWork, and Sergei Serbreyakov.

before us: public and private funding, some of which is apparently site- and facility-specific; scheduling for the needs of multiple arts organizations and programs; sizing of facilities to provide for peak audiences and the more usual need for small venues; enormous capital costs and the concern for ongoing operating costs — to name a few. My hope is that our Island organizations could construct two facilities on the high school campus, perhaps relocating the “bus barn,� just off Vashon highway or using the Building A site once that building is demolished. We could create two theater spaces — one sized for an audience of 300, the other for, perhaps, 125. If these were adjacent, they might share an entrance, a lobby and plumbing walls. Even if not connected, economies of scale would likely be realized if the buildings were in proximity to one another, making geothermal heating and rainwater collection and use more costeffective. We might even be able to reduce operating costs, a major concern for both the school district and VAA. The benefit to the community is that we create the most flexible spaces, where we don’t sacrifice our intimate venues for the desire to have space for larger audiences. With the Oberlin type of planning, we could honestly say that we will be constructing community facilities — ones that reflect a set of values with regard to scale, environmental impact and how we work together to meet our needs and affect our landscape and sense of place.

Q:

To view this blog & make comments, visit www.vashonislandrealestate.com/blog.html

We really appreciate all the time you’ve been taking with us looking for a house. I’m sorry that we’ve got so many dumb questions. Buying a house is so much more complicated than we were expecting. I’m sure you’d rather be dealing with sophisticated buyers who are sure of what they want and know their way around all of these forms and things. Is there anything more we can do to make this easier?

A:

You don’t need to do a thing! Your questions are helping you learn what is most important in the home buying process and the more you know the better the outcome will be. Many “sophisticated� and experienced buyers are far more critical and cynical than you and other first time home buyers. They often want a castle for the price of a shack, and look at even the best deal with suspicion. In addition, they don’t always know what they want any more than you do. I can’t blame some buyers for their present attitude, of course, since the sellers market we had for many years ran buyers ragged. But, you have no idea how refreshing it is to work with young buyers who are thrilled with just the idea that they can finally buy a home of their own. That’s especially true on Vashon Island. At the height of the market our average sale price was close to half a million dollars for the most modest homes. There was no hope for low income elders, young families just starting out, or even most middle class single buyers to find something affordable. That included Vashon natives who had been renting here all of their lives. The recession has helped to change that. Yes, there are people losing their homes and that’s terrible, but the lower prices have enabled young buyers and retirees to finally be able to buy a home here. By the way, as the old saying goes, “there’s no such thing as a dumb question�. It’s how we really learn. I find working with you a joy, so keep those questions coming!

Vashon Maury Island Land Trust Photo

The Vashon Maury Island Land Trust will offer tours of Whispering Firs Bog, a fragile preserve that shelters a rare sphagnum bog thought to be more than 10,000 years old. The preserve, between Vashon Highway and Vermontville Road, doubled to nearly 20 acres this year, thanks to a successful legislative effort to secure state funds used to purchase a 10-acre parcel adjacent to the long-standing preserve, the land trust’s first acquisition. The preserve is botanically interesting, according to the land trust. The tiny sundew, a carnivorous plant, is found there, and the trees that surround it are twisted and stunted, due to the bog’s stagnant, acidic water. High school science teacher Tom DeVries, Ph.D., shown above, will once again lead tours of the site. The cost is $5 per family for land trust members and $25 per family for non-members, by reservation. Contact the Land Trust for information or to reserve space at 463-2644 or info@ vashonlandtrust.org. Tours will run at 9, 10 and 11 a.m. Saturday, Oct. 1, at the bog.

The project has been dormant, Emmer said, but she hopes the project will be revitalized Meeting organizers also hope to hear from community members about what their concerns are regarding health services on the Island, Emmer noted, and those who did not fill out a survey previously will be able to do so. The council came together last spring because several people were concerned that the health needs of other Islanders were not being met. — Susan Riemer

A night with the stars

VAA Auction brings out the best

More than 400 Islanders flocked to two sold-out nights of entertainment, food and, of course, bidding at Vashon Allied Arts’ annual auction, which boasted a Hollywood theme this year. The event netted more than $100,000 for the arts organization, including $45,000 for scholarships during the raise the paddle portion of the auction. Five gregarious impersonators who dressed and acted as famous celebrities entertained guests throughout both nights, and many Islanders were dressed to the nines themselves as they mingled, dined and bid on original pieces of art and other items. The live auctions were led by David Silverman on Friday night and Kevin Joyce on Saturday. Jeff Hoyt emceed both nights. Money flew during the fast-paced live auctions, and several items touched off bidding wars. Among the most popular items, said VAA director Molly Reed, were a dinner party at Islander Matt Bergman’s home, a dinosaur statue by photographer-turned-sculptor Mike Urban and a watercolor painting by commissioned artist Art Hansen. Both Bergman and Urban agreed to donate additional items to be auctioned Saturday night after theirs proved so popular. Reed said she was pleased VAA met its fundraising goal. But more than that, she said, she was pleased by the infectious energy that seemed to fill the tent outside the Blue Heron both nights. “It was the feeling that happens — you can feel it when you’re doing special events. Sometimes you just really hit it,� she said. 1IPUPTCZ+PIOEF(SPFO

A BAND BLOWS ITS HORN

Tobolowsky talks it up

Cordaviva, a band with a big Afro beat sound, will play a free show at the Bike on Friday. A nine-piece dance band, Cordaviva, will bring a what promises to be a powerhouse show to the Red Bike at 8:30 p.m. Friday. The band plays music influenced by the rhythms and styles of the African diaspora — a blend of coukous, rumba, Afro beat, funk and various Latin styles. A horn section backs up vocal harmonies sung in

multiple languages, soulful guitars and driving percussion. The band has played Seattle venues such as The Triple Door, Nectar Lounge, The Tractor Tavern and ACT Theatre. Their show on Vashon is free and for all ages until 11 p.m. and ages 21 and older after that.

Tobolowsky, who is also the star of a popular podcast and radio show, “The Tobolowsky Files,� decided to donate his performance on Vashon after being contacted by Islander Rebecca Graves, who is a staunch supporter of Vashon High School’s drama program. “I’ve seen it save lives,� said Graves, recounting how, as a substitute teacher in the school district, she has seen troubled kids blossom as they performed in school plays. Tobolowsky, for his part, agrees that art can make a difference. “Art and drama have gotten me through some of the worst times in my

For “Pause/Scrub/Play� — a collaborative work that will be largely improvisational — Nelson has assembled a team of collaborators, including dancers Kris Wheeler and Lila Hurwitz, visual installation artist Susan Gladstone, percussionist John Dancey and guest performers Aaron Schwartzman and Louis Gervais. The dancers will also interact with each other and the audience through vocalization. Tickets, $12/$15, are on sale at Blue Heron, Heron’s Nest, Books by the Way, Vashon Bookshop and www.brownpapertickets.com.

Sheepdog trials return to Vashon By SUSAN RIEMER Staff Writer

Come Friday, a scene resembling pastoral England will unfold on a rolling field in the heart of Vashon Island, with sheep dotting the landscape and working dogs and their handlers at the ready to herd them. While the scene might look like one from far away, it will be part of a very Vashon event: the second annual Vashon Sheepdog Classic at Misty Isle Farms. The event will feature nearly 100 dog and handler teams, including some that are highly skilled, such as the 2010 U.S. National Champion Patrick Shannahan, who served as last year’s judge. “This is a rare opportunity for people to watch these wonderful dogs work,� said Maggi McClure, the event’s organizer. “It is growing into one of the most prestigious working dog events on the

West Coast.� Like last year’s event, which McClure said drew roughly 3,500 spectators, this event is also a fundraiser for Vashon’s Partners in Education (PIE), which supports Vashon’s public schools. What people should expect this weekend, McClure said, is a traditional sheepdog trial set on a classic course. The mission of these highly trained dogs will be to run the length of the field, gather what McClure calls “willful and wise� sheep and bring them into a pen back up the field not far from the handler. Throughout, McClure said, the dogs must conduct themselves in an “efficient but workmanlike manner,� an important part of the process. “We want the sheep feeling as good about themselves as they can,� she said. While herding might sound

The trials will run from dawn until dusk Friday through Sunday at Misty Isle Farms at Old Mill Road and 220th Ave. S.W. The entry fee is $5, and kids 12 and under are free. To learn more about the event as well as sponsoring a dog, see www. vashonsheepdogclassic.com.

straightforward, each dog’s run will be broken into seven judged components, McClure said, and she recommends binoculars to catch some of the highlights along the way. One of the most important pieces of each run is when the dog first makes contact with the sheep at the end of the field. The dog must approach “with authority and patience� to guide them, McClure said, and within seconds the dog’s relationship with the sheep will likely be established. While the speed of the event is not judged, all seven steps must take place in about 10 minutes. Last year the dogs had a challenging time penning the sheep, McClure recalled, and she expects this will be the case this year as well. “These sheep run in bands of thousands,� she said. “They are not used to fences. Going into a small area — they do not understand that at all.� The sheep, trucked in from the Blue Mountains in Eastern Washington for the event, are used to cougars, bears, coyotes and wide open spaces, and the

Border collies, bred for herding, are considered some of most intelligent dogs. dogs will have to be skilled, according to McClure. “It’s a worthy competition,� she said. The weekend event will include a range of other activities and booths — including a shearing demonstration and displays of fiber arts. Food will be available, and a representative from the Kitsap Humane Society will be there with some senior dogs she hopes people will want to adopt. Parking will be along the roadways with overflow at Paradise Ridge, and Island Girl Ride

Service will offer rides for people who have to park at a distance from the entrance. Spectators are welcome to bring picnics and chairs, McClure said, and there will be a convenient location set up as a load and unload zone. “It takes a lot of people to put an event like this on,� McClure noted. The event raised more than $5,000 last year, she said, and she hopes to exceed that this year. “I am hoping for good weather,� McClure said. “We hope people come out.�

and insensitive and shouldn’t happen.� At the same time, he said, he was impressed by Superintendent Michael Soltman’s decision to change the date of the homecoming dance, a move Soltman made almost immediately after receiving a strongly worded letter from Bergman asking that the date of the dance be changed. “I think the outcome really shows courage on the part of the district in that they admitted they made a mistake and fixed it,� Bergman said. “A lot of public officials could get very defensive. In this case, the district acknowledged it made a mistake and looked for a way to fix it.� Others in the Jewish

community said they hoped the incident will provide an opportunity to build more awareness on Vashon about the Jewish high holidays — an awareness that is strong on the East Coast but is often missing in the Northwest, where the Jewish population is much smaller. “For me personally, this is a teachable moment,� said Louise Olsen, president of the Havurat Ee Shalom, a Jewish congregation on Vashon, and a former teacher at Vashon High School. She said she talked to VHS principal Susan Hanson, McMurray principal Greg Allison and some Jewish teachers at the two schools about the mistakes. She also said she promised to give the school district a calendar that lists the dates for the Jewish high holidays over the next five years — something she discovered other Jewish organizations

do in other parts of the country. “It’s important to address this in a sensitive, appropriate, respectful way,� she said. “The message to me is that it wasn’t considered. And why? It could be a real healing thing.� But Olsen and others are concerned about the impact the last-minute change in the date of the homecoming dance is having on students, especially those who are organizing the event. “Students need to be supported and valued,� she said. “They put a lot of time and effort into their homecoming plans, and they do a beautiful job.� Indeed, the students planning the event say they’re now scrambling as a result of the decision. ASB copresidents Julie Wilson and Carly Sue Anderson officially learned on Friday that the dance would be Oct.

1 rather than Oct. 8, giving them only eight days to recreate an event scheduled to take place at the Vashon Golf & Swim Club. “We pretty much have had to start over from scratch,� said Anderson, noting that the venue — as of Friday — was still up in the air. Chaperones will have to be lined up again, she added, as does the deputy sheriff who attends. “It’s unfortunate the problem was brought up so late,� Wilson said, adding that the date was set by the administration, not the student body. In an interview, Wilson, Anderson and one other student, Gianna Andrews, co-vice president of ASB, said they felt particularly frustrated that a decision was made without their input. The three girls went online and researched the issue, discovering Vashon is

not the first school to make such a mistake. Western Michigan University President John Dunn earlier this month apologized for scheduling Homecoming on Yom Kippur but did not reschedule the event, they noted. The ASB executive council also organized a meeting with Hanson and assistant principal Stephanie Spencer, inviting a Jewish student to attend. At that meeting, the girls said, they learned that because Yom Kippur technically ends at sundown, the dance would not necessarily create a conflict for Jewish students. The football game, Jewish students told them, is really the issue, but because of complex scheduling procedures with the Nisqually League, that date couldn’t be changed, the girls said. “The student body has been good,� Anderson

added. “We know it’s not the Jewish students’ fault. ‌ I think the reason students feel frustrated is that it was just dropped on everyone.â€? Sarah Kai Schwarz, a Jewish student active in the Havurat and co-editor of The Riptide, the high school newspaper, said she, too, was disappointed the decision was made to change the date. “It’s just causing a lot of stress for the students who are organizing it,â€? she said. But Bergman said it’s a misunderstanding of the Jewish faith to believe that Yom Kippur suddenly ends at sundown. Many Jews, he said, fast during the 24-hour period, then break the fast with a celebratory dinner. He compared the situation his family would have found itself in to another family racing through Christmas dinner so that a child could head to a school function. “We could cut short and truncate this tradition,â€? he said. “But it’s pretty important family time. And just because technically the holiday is over at sundown doesn’t mean the observation is over.â€? Andrew Schwarz, Sarah Kai’s father and an active member of the Havurat, said he feels sympathy for the students who are suddenly shouldering the work of rescheduling the dance. “My heart goes out to them,â€? he said. But he agreed that Yom Kippur — a solemn day of prayer and fasting — shouldn’t be capped by the high school’s homecoming dance. And like Bergman, he believes the mistake was one of considerable magnitude and an issue that should not be taken lightly. “Plain and simple, I hope the mess of it is enough to convince the administration to be a little more careful. ‌ I hope something’s learned from it. I hope the mistake isn’t made again,â€? he said.

VOLLEYBALL UNDEFEATED Pirates lose tough game to a top team By BRIAN BRENNO For The Beachcomber

The 2010 state football champions the Cascade Christian Cougars brought their 60-player squad to Vashon last Friday and overwhelmed the younger, smaller Vashon team in a 55-12 win. On the Cougars’ first drive, Vashon’s Peter Evans intercepted a Cascade pass, giving Vashon the ball. Cascade then intercepted a Vashon pass and drove for their first score, putting Cascade up 7 points. Vashon’s next possession ended in a punt. Multiple player injuries punctuated the game, beginning with an injury to a Cascade player on the ensuing drive. Thought to have a broken leg, the player was taken to Harborview in an ambulance. Shortly after, the Cougars scored again, bringing the score to 14-0. The Pirates again had to punt. Cascade continued to roll with their passing attack, scoring on a 50-yard touchdown pass, bringing the score to 21-0. A Vashon fumble gave Cascade the ball, resulting in another touchdown.

The Vashon High School volleyball team is off to a strong start this season, as the Pirates have won every game they’ve played so far. They have a current record of 4-0 in league play and 5-0 overall. The Pirates opened league play this month against last season’s two top teams — Charles Wright and Cascade Christian — beating both. On Tuesday after press deadline Vashon played Orting at home, and on Friday they will travel to Sequim for a rematch with the tough 2A team. Important home matches will take place next week, as the girls take on Seattle Christian on Tuesday, Sept. 4, and play Charles Wright again on Thursday, Sept. 6. JV action in both games kicks off at 4:15 p.m., and the varsity team takes the court at 5:45 p.m. Pictured, Senior Sammy Fall goes for the kill at game point in the first game of the Pirates’ 3-0 match win over Chimacum last week.

Vashon quarterback Nick Amundsen was hit in the ribs on the next possession and was out for a few plays but returned to the game. Cascade got the ball back with an interception scoring on another pass, and one more touchdown for Cascade

brought the score 42-0 at halftime. In the second half the Pirates began to move the ball with Garrett Starr catching three passes capped by an Ezra Ende touchdown for SEE FOOTBALL, NEXT PAGE

Soccer loses to Tacoma team, still ranked first Following a 11-0 win over Chimacum last week, the Vashon girls soccer team suffered a loss to Woodrow Wilson High School of Tacoma at the Stadium Bowl, on Thursday, Sept. 22. Vashon fans weren’t surprised to see Wilson, a school with over 1,200 students, fielding a strong team that included several exceptionally skilled players. The final score of 5-1 was lopsided, but included three corner kicks that were each nicely executed and

converted to goals by Wilson. The field play, however, was very closely contested, with good passing combinations and shots on goal by both teams. Vashon put together several moments of excellence, one of which was a 45-yard free kick by junior midfielder Lena DeGuzman, to one bounce and a well placed header over the goalie to score by senior forward Cat Amick. The Vashon team was forced to step up its game against the strong

opponent and will now come back to take on teams in its own Nisqually League. Vashon is 3-0 in league play and 3-1 overall, and is tied with Orting for first in the league, according to the Seattle Times. Their next home game is at 6 p.m. Tuesday, Oct. 4, against Seattle Christian and will likely be a hard fought match. Their last home game is scheduled for Oct. 11. — Bill Griffith

Vashon runners compete at Lincoln Park By KEVIN ROSS For The Beachcomber

Last Thursday the Vashon cross country team parked its bus and walked onto the ferry, headed to a meet at Lincoln Park, right by the Fauntleroy ferry dock. The hosting school was Seattle Christian, and Vashon competed against five Nisqually League schools. Middle school runner Jeffrey Parrish started things off by placing near the top in the 1.8-mile race, which he ran in 12:42. Next up in the boys JV race,

the Pirates put out a full team that shows a lot of promise for the future. The highlight was when freshman Aaron Kitchener set a 30-second personal record with a time of 24:22 in the 3.1-mile course. In the girls JV and varsity race, it was sophomore Maddi Groen who led the way for the Pirates, finishing in 22:46. Overall the girls had a great showing as a team. The boys varsity race saw personal records set by Nathan Williams, who as a freshman is establishing himself as the number-two varsity runner for

the Pirates. Philip Vandevanter, Codi Williams and Magnus Walgren also set personal records. Ryan Krug led the way with a time of 19:31. Overall the boys are starting to pick up the pace as a varsity team. The next event for the team will be the eighth-annual ferry dock to ferry dock 13.5-mile run/relay event to benefit the cross country program this Saturday. A shuttle bus will pick runners up at the north end at 7:15 a.m. — Kevin Ross is a cross country coach at VHS.

MCMURRAY PLAYERS TAKE TO THE FIELD After a three-year hiatus, McMurray Middle School football is back on the gridiron. The Mustangs lost a close game, 0-14, last Wednesday to the much larger Mountain View Middle School team from Bremerton. The Mustangs have one more home game, at 3:30 p.m. Tuesday, Oct. 18, at Vashon High School. Pictured, Clyde Pruett (25) carries the ball as a Bremerton Mountain View tackler closes in during the fourth quarter of Wednesday’s game. 3JL'PSTDINJFEU3JLTJNBHFTDPN

Vashon’s first points, bringing the score to 42-6. On the Cougars’ next drive they had another player injured, suffering what was thought to be a neck injury. The game was halted for about 45 min-

utes, until medics safely removed the player from the field, also transporting him to Harborview. The Cougars scored again, making it 49-6. When the Pirates got the ball, Nick Betz raced for a 31-yard gain topped off with a Garrett Starr touchdown, making the score 49-12. Cascade ended the scoring with a 50-yard

touchdown. The Pirates got the ball again and drove into Cascade territory, but time elapsed before they could score, and the final score was 55-12. The Pirates will play Orting in an away game on Saturday, Oct. 1. —Brian Brenno is the president of the Bounty Club.

Several players injured at recent football game An unusually high number of players were injured during Friday night’s home football game. One injury halted play for 45 minutes. Two Vashon players experienced minor injuries, requiring them to sit out for part of the game, and two Cascade Christian players were transported via ferry to Harborview for their injuries. According to Deanna Johnson, athletic assistant at Cascade Christian, the first Cascade player to be transported suffered two broken bones in his leg. He was held at Harborview for at least three nights and was expected to be released Monday. When another Cascade player was injured during the third quarter, suffering what seemed to be a neck injury, three Vashon ambulances were already off the Island. While emergency responders were at the field in about five minutes, an ambulance crew wasn’t available to transport the player for 45 minutes, during which time responders tended to him as he lay stabilized on the field. Mark Brownell, battalion chief of EMS Vashon Island Fire & Rescue (VIFR),

said VIFR experienced an unusually high number of calls Friday evening, requiring five off-Island transports in 90 minutes. He said the spurt of transports was very rare. “That’s the first time that that’s occurred in my six years working for VIFR,â€? he said. Brownell, who responded to the incident, said the player’s injury required VIFR responders to keep him immobile until an ambulance arrived. While the response time to the second injury was longer than normal, Brownell said the player’s condition improved as they waited. VIFR can always transport patients via helicopter if necessary, Brownell noted. “If I thought his condition was worsening. ‌ I wouldn’t have batted an eye for a second to call a helicopter,â€? he said. Johnson said the player suffered a neck strain, was released from Harborview that night and is reported to be in good condition. —Natalie Johnson

the densely forested and increasingly popular area during the four-month deer hunting season. Lisa Peyer, who has lived by the forest for more than 20 years, said she has watched it become more and more popular among all users, and worries that eventually someone could be shot. “I think it’s a tragedy waiting to happen,â€? she said. Of particular concern to those present were hunters from offIsland, whom several people said are known to disregard safety at the forest. Amy Carey, who as a VashonMaury Island Land Trust board member was instrumental in the property’s transfer to the county in 2005, said that on several occasions she has run into off-Island hunters who are lost, not wearing safety vests and sometimes shooting on the trail or wandering onto private property. “I continue to see safety as a problem,â€? she said. However, Carey said, closing the forest to most of its users for 17 days didn’t seem fair. She thought the proposal should be taken off the table while the community discussed alternatives. “I understand you’re trying to find a solution, ‌ but the closure for three weeks to me is not an equitable solution,â€? she said. County officials at the meeting said they wished to continue to allow hunting at the forest in part

Lisa Peyer, who has lived near Island Center Forest for more than 20 years, said she worries that hunting at the popular site could lead to a tragedy. because historically it’s been the only public land on Vashon open to the activity. In addition, they said, hunting is the only way to control Vashon’s large deer population. Brian Kertson, the Washington Department of Fish and Wildlife biologist for the county, said that although Vashon’s deer have not been formally surveyed, biologists believe the population is at or above a size that can be healthily sustained on the Island. Some of them, he said, are likely sick or malnourished. He noted that deer

on Vashon are frequently hit by cars and are known to damage property. “From the department standpoint, we view hunting as the only valuable tool to reduce the deer population, with the concern of public safety,� he said. A few who spoke, however, argued against placing any limitations on hunting at Island Center Forest, saying hunters and pedestrians have shared the forest without problems for years. “When is the last time someone was shot?� questioned Scott

Curtiss Noah May 16, 1966 – September 22, 2011 Curt was born in East Saint Louis, Illinois, and began coming to Vashon in the summer of 1976. He spent most of his summers here thereafter, eventually becoming a year-round resident. Curtiss divided his adult life living between Illinois and Vashon. While on Vashon he worked several years at The Vashon Island Golf and Country Club, and became the golf club superintendent. In later years he started his own landscaping business. He was a resourceful, hardworking man who was quick to lend a hand to others. Curtiss had a deep and abiding love for his family and always seemed to light-up in the presence of his siblings. It brings some measure of solace to his family knowing that he was in a beautiful, peaceful forest doing work he enjoyed when he died. In Illinois he leaves behind his beloved mother, Sharon and his cherished siblings; Mark, Michael and Andrea. On the island he leaves his dad, Rex, stepmom Lin, sisters Cerise and Noor, brothers Jenner and Kael, and his daughter Jadzia. Curt had far too many friends to mention by name, but you know who you are. He leaves a huge hole in the hearts of his family and friends and we will love and miss him forever. Notice of a memorial service will be announced soon.

Harvey. “A hunter should know their target. ... It’s their responsibility,� he added. “I don’t see any reason at all there should be this restriction.� Kimmett told those at the meeting that hunters would be closely monitored during the shortened hunting season. Maps of the forest would be available and postersize aerial photos at the trailheads would show where park boundaries and homes are located. Scott Snyder, a King County resource coordinator, held up a

wooden trail sign, an example of the two dozen he said would soon be installed at the forest and would help hunters know their location. Under county law, it’s illegal to fire a weapon within 500 feet of a home, a rule those who live by the forest say is broken. “We feel with all this signage, it will help the main issue,� Synder said. The program would be a pilot, Kimmett emphasized, and the county would monitor how the forest is used during the time. Lisa Coley, a mother of three who lives by the forest, told those present that she thought the proposal was a good idea, as she has always been concerned about her family’s safety in the forest during the four-month hunting season. “I’m glad to see it was condensed,� she said, adding she didn’t have a problem walking somewhere else during a shorter hunting season. “It’s a compromise, and I think that’s what everyone was trying to come up with,� she said.

Nancyy C. Benson Nancy C. Benson passed away on August 22, 2011 in Kent WA surrounded by her daughters and her niece. Nancy was born on January 23, 1922 in Oregon City, OR to Jesse and Aimee Cochran. As a child Nancy spent many of her summers on Vashon with her grandparents William and Margaret Spalding of Cedarhurst. Nancy and her cousin, Margaret Rosser forged a lifelong bond during those summers of fishing, berry picking and generally having a good time together. Both Nancy and Margaret raised large families (each had 8 children) and the families visited each other often on Vashon and the Oregon coast. Nancy married Norman H. Benson on October 1, 1945 upon Norman’s return from the war. They eventually moved to the Oregon coast and operated two Department stores, the first in Newport and the second in Toledo called Benson’s Variety. They operated Benson’s for 20 years and were known for their kindness and generosity in the community. After retiring Nancy and Norman made their home with several of their children and on two occasions lived on Vashon helping their daughter Rebecca with her young children. Later Nancy started East to West produce bringing fruits and vegetables from Yakima to sell on Vashon. Nancy enjoyed her friends on the Island and became a favorite of so many people. Nancy is preceded in death by her husband Norman who died 3 months and 5 days before her. They had celebrated their 65th wedding anniversary last October at the Quartermaster Inn. She is survived by her children, Greg, Keith, Jack (Nancy), Paul (Nancy), Brita (Ken) Stern, Laurie Crollard, Rebecca Benson(Tom Wallace), and Stephanie (John) Fiskum. She is also survived by 20 grandchildren and 11 great grandchildren. A celebration of her life will be held on October 1, 2011 at 2:00 pm at Clearview Foursquare Church 17210 State Rt. 9 SE Snohomish, WA. Everyone is invited. In lieu of flowers please make a donation to the Vashon Food Bank at P.O. Box 1205, Vashon WA 98070.

“I was born, at an early age, in the hospital. I wasn’t sick but I wanted to be near my Mother who wasn’t feeling very well at the time� Rocky was born in Brooklyn, New York, on March 9, 1914, the eldest of six siblings born to Amadeo and Carmela (Perelli) Lombardi. Rocky passed away September 11, 2011 at The Lodge at Roo Lan in Lacey, WA where he had been living since March. Rocky came to Vashon in 1983 to marry Joane Walsh and quickly became involved in Island life; he was one of the first Vashon Park District Commissioners and coached the Pharmacy Little League Team to victory. He was a past President of the Vashon Sportsman’s Club; he loved to write music and had a great sense of humor. Rocky was also a professional whistler and whistled on stage at Carnegie Hall.

braked and traffic stalled for a several moments as a few cars laid on their horns. WSF officials say the lack of an officer to direct traffic during peak hours so far hasn’t caused boats to run late. But they are worried about safety at the busy intersection and are actively searching for the funds to either reinstate the officers or install a traffic light there. Doug Schlief, senior terminals manager for WSF, said the agency has been concerned ever since it found out the officers would be pulled. Schlief, who worked at the Fauntleroy terminal in the 1990s, said both car and pedestrian traffic have increased significantly at the intersection. More than 100 students now commute from Seattle to Vashon for school, he said, and many of them must make their way across Fauntleroy Avenue in the mornings and afternoons. “There is more activity today,� he said. “When you add all that together, that’s what gives us concern.� Many ferry riders and West Seattle drivers have taken notice of the change. Though some aren’t bothered by the lack of direction at the intersection, noting that sometimes it just takes longer to unload the boat, others are worried it’s an accident waiting to happen. Paul Anderson, who commutes on the ferry from Port Orchard to West Seattle, said

navigating the intersection at Fauntleroy was already tricky enough. One time before the officers were pulled but during a time when they weren’t stationed there, he witnessed an accident that occurred when two cars turning left tried to merge and hit each other. He worries a similar accident will eventually happen again without an authority at the end of the dock. “It’s just a matter of time,� he said. Neal Philip, an attorney and commissioner on Vashon’s fire board who commutes to Seattle, says he’s extremely worried after a situation he witnessed earlier this month. Stopped in line with a good view of unloading traffic, he said he saw multiple near-accidents as offloading drivers quickly pulled out at breaks in traffic. Once a car on Fauntleroy had to hit its breaks to avoid hitting another car, he said. Philip was so bothered that he sent a letter to WSF officials as well as several state and city lawmakers expressing his concern. “I wanted to make sure somebody was actually doing something,� he said. “We need leadership to step up and say this is an immediate public safety issue. and we need to fix it now.� State Sen. Sharon Nelson (D-Maury Island), one of the legislators Philip wrote to, said she is aware of the situation and has been working with other lawmakers and WSF officials to find money for a replacement. “I’m very concerned,� Nelson said. “In my opinion, this is a potential fatality waiting to happen.� Nelson said she and others have been

talking with WSF director David Moseley about a solution. But after lawmakers significantly trimmed the state transportation budget and ferry operating budget last legislative session, Nelson said, finding extra funds to fill the hole left by the officers is proving tricky. It’s especially hard to secure funds when the legislature isn’t in session, she added. “I’m not happy this was imbedded in the (state) budget and the fact is it was. Trying to explore our options is difficult,� she said. Nelson said she would prefer to put officers back at the intersection, an idea that isn’t off the table yet. But Schlief said the agency is also looking into the feasibility of installing a traffic light at the intersection, perhaps one controlled by the WSF. He said Moseley recently identified a Seattle engineer to discuss the project with. “We kind of like that idea. We think it makes sense,� Schlief said, noting that the ferry-controlled traffic light in Edmonds has worked well there. “It would be nice if we could give a green light to offloading traffic,� he said. “That would be ideal for us.� The upfront costs of installing a traffic light would be much greater than hiring Washington State Patrol officers, Schlief said, and WSF may seek some city funds to support such a project. State ferry officials, however, have yet to discuss the idea with the city of Seattle, he added. “To try to engage different funding is just a challenge all the way around,� he said. The Fauntleroy neighborhood, mean-

while, has historically resisted the idea of a traffic light at the ferry dock. Gary Dawson, the head of the Fauntleroy Ferry Advisory Committee, said traffic at the dock has been the main topic of conversation at recent Fauntleroy Community Association meetings. While many who live and drive near the dock are now concerned about safety there, he said they also worry that a traffic light that gave priority to ferry traffic would cause congestion on Fauntleroy Avenue and surrounding roads and could delay buses. “We’re not putting up road blocks to prevent progress, but we want to make sure any change in operation benefits both communities,� Dawson said. Whether the answer is a traffic light or a return of officers, Dawson said, the Fauntleroy community believes the state should fund the solution, as the traffic is created by cars unloading state ferries. Tom Rasmussen, a Seattle city councilmember, said he too has been in talks with WSF and other lawmakers about a long-term plan for the intersection and where the funds may come from during a time when state and local budgets are tight. Rasmussen was open to the idea of a traffic light, but agreed with Dawson, saying the solution should be funded by the state. “We are being proactive to come up with a plan,� he said. “But again we believe it is the state’s responsibility to manage the traffic, and we’ll work with them to be as helpful as we can.�

Angel is the softest, sweetest girl who came to VIPP when her owner passed away. She is getting used to being at the shelter with all the other cats. Angel loves to be petted and she would love to have a full time lap. Angel would be a great companion for someone who wants a lot of kitty love. Date of entry to VIPP: 9/10/10

Eliot was found around the new year on the south end of the island. He was hungry and lost. We have tried to find his person but no one has claimed him. Eliot is now looking for his new home. This guy writes brilliant poetry about cats and he entertains the other felines at the shelter with his endless tales of all kinds of cats. Eliot is the kind of guy who likes to be picked up and receive a huge kitty hug. He would be a great cat for a senior person who wants a great buddy.

Employment General

Max is an older lab mix who makes you happy to have him near you. He is always happy and ready for adventure and equally happy lying next to you while you’re watching TV. He loves to ride in the car, go for walks, and makes friends easily. He is good with children and kitties.
