Changing demographics take toll on preschools Across Vashon, numbers are down at even the most established centers

In fighting substance use, place matters By NATALIE JOHNSON Staff Writer

A makeover of the sitting area next to the Vashon Pharmacy comes as one of several projects that will take shape around the Island over the course of several months in a wide effort to curb public drinking and drug use. A motion-sensor light will be installed under the shelter at the Village Green, where drinking and drug use often happens at night. The alley behind the PlaySpace, where drug deals are sometimes made, will be gated off. And blackberry bushes will eventually be mowed down by the entrance to KVI beach to create a clear line of sight to the sandy stretch where teenagers sometimes gather to drink. The small projects, which will be completed in at least eight locations on Vashon, are part of an effort by the Vashon Alliance to Reduce Substance Abuse (VARSA) to curb substance abuse at popular spots and perhaps send a message that the community does not tolerate underage substance abuse. The project is funded by the 10-year Drug Free Communities

When Island kids returned to school this fall, several classrooms were emptier than usual, especially at Vashon preschools, where many have fewer students enrolled than ever before. The reason for the dip in numbers appears to be twofold, early childhood advocates say. A decline in young children on the Island, which the 2010 census documented, is likely a leading factor, and the poor economy, leaving some families with a jobless parent and many with limited incomes for child care, also contributes. It has meant many programs have had to cut back and find creative solutions to this new reality, a sharp contrast to just a few years ago. “It used to be five years ago we had a long waiting list and no worries at all,” said Dan Cullinan, who has owned Starbreak Adventure School with his wife Kathy Zbryk for the past 14 years. In the school’s heyday, it served about 16 to 18 families, and almost all the children attended full time. Now, Cullinan said, to create full classes, they have had to offer

The school carries no waiting list and has space for a couple more children, which was unheard of not long ago. Acknowledging there are fewer young kids on the Island than their used to be, he believes the interest in part-time programs is fueled by the economy. “They want the quality of the

program, but they cannot afford the five days,” he said. Several of the other preschools tell similar stories about declining enrollment, including those that have been on the Island the longest. At the Vashon-Maury Cooperative Preschool, which has served the Island for 40 years, there is no toddler class this year because of lack of enrollment, and

Deborah Brown makes a point, while the other candidates, from left, Ron Turner, Candy McCullough and Joe Ulatoski, listen.

Taxes and on-Island volunteerism were both hot topics at Wednesday night’s Fire Commissioner Candidates’ Debate, where four candidates for two seats on Vashon Island Fire & Rescue’s board of commissioners faced off before a crowd of about 75. The mood at the event, sponsored by Voice of Vashon and The Beachcomber, was light as Susan McCabe provided playful moderation and the candidates remained civil and even-tempered. All questions at the 90-minute debate, which was also filmed by Voice of Vashon, were posed by audience members who stood at microphones

Granny’s Attic, Vashon’s bustling thrift store, awarded $38,000 to Vashon Community Care, one of the largest single donations in the nonprofit’s storied history, according to Jeannine Emery, president of the Granny’s board. The gift was one of a handful it gave out earlier this month. All told, the nonprofit thrift store issued nearly $50,000 in grants — including $5,700 to the Interfaith Council to Prevent Homelessness to cover the costs of a dental van and $3,000 to Shape Up, Vashon, a new organization attempting to help Islanders make healthful personal choices. The grant to Vashon Community Care follows a $16,400 gift it made last year and a $13,000 gift the year before. Emery said Granny’s board and members decided to increase its support of VCC because of the crisis in Medicaid — a situation that is placing ongoing financial pressure on the small nursing home and assisted living center. The gift is the largest donation Granny’s has given since Highline Medical Group took over management of the Vashon Health Center in 2004. Four years ago, the organization changed its bylaws, allowing Granny’s to support a range of healthoriented organizations in addition to the health center. “It’s kind of a landmark,� Emery said of the $38,000 gift. It’s also an indication, she said, “of just how much stress there is on VCC’s budget.� The funds will go towards filling what VCC administrators call the “Medicaid gap� for three clients in their skilled nursing center. Because of budget cuts, Medicaid reimbursements cover only 74 percent of the care center’s actual costs in its skilled nursing facility, said Janelle Ansell, VCC’s

administrator. The gap has taken a heavy toll on VCC in part because of its philosophy that it won’t turn anyone away due to his or her funding source, Ansell said. As a result, “we feel a continued obligation to take people who are low-income,� she said. Currently, 21 of its 30 residents in the nursing home receive Medicaid, Ansell said. And in its assisted living center, she said, 13 of 31 residents receive Medicaid. “We applied for the grant, knowing it was a little bit of a long shot. But our financial situation is very challenging,� Ansell said. “We were ecstatic to learn we’d received the grant,� she added. “It makes a huge difference.� Emery said Granny’s first priority remains the health center, which it supports to the tune of $9,000 a month. But the health center has not made many grant requests recently, Emery said, “and we were still accumulating cash.� So at a recent membership meeting, Granny’s decided it had to keep in reserve three months’ worth of operating expenses, or $125,000, freeing up funds to hand out as grants, Emery said. The fact that Granny’s has so much money to give, she added, is a testament to the community’s support of the thrift store. It’s not surprising that during a recession people are shopping at the store, she said. But what is surprising, she added, is “that we’re still getting so many good donations.� Those items that don’t sell go to Goodwill in Seattle, she said, where donations are down. Meanwhile, she added, Tim Johnson has become Granny’s new business manager, replacing Richard Lipke. Johnson, who chairs the Vashon-Maury Island Community Council, has a background in organic food sales and distribution. “We’re really excited about his vision,� Emery said. “We’re hoping he’s able to do even a fraction of what he thinks he can do.�

each day. Data from the most recent census confirms what preschool teachers are experiencing in their classrooms. The census counted 75 fewer children under age 5 on Vashon in 2010 than in 2000. There were 22 fewer 5-year-olds, 19 fewer 3-year-olds, 16 fewer 2-year-olds and 35 fewer 1-year-olds. Only 4-yearolds saw an increase. A look at births to Vashon families tells a similar story. According to records kept by Seattle-King County Public Health, the birth rate has not changed dramatically over time. But the actual number of births has dropped in recent years. While the decline is not large, in a population the size of Vashon, a modest decrease can be noticeable. In 2000 and 2001, for example, there were 81 births each year. By 2009, that number had fallen to 65. But it’s not only preschools that are affected by the shrinking demographic. Other programs as well as the public schools are also experiencing a shift. At Vashon Kids, the

line, the board has planned well financially, Francis said. It is in no danger of closing, though it may scale back and change fundraising strategies. The board will also keep monitoring interest in its programs on a quarterly basis and will add a toddler class if enough people are interested. Zoe Cheroke has run The Barbie school for nearly as long as the co-op preschool has been open — 37 years — and she too has far fewer students than in the past. Typically, Cheroke has had two groups of students, totaling about 25 kids. This year she has 11. “I think it’s an issue of a smaller demographic,� she said. “There are just so many kids to go around.� She had planned on scaling back, she noted, so the decline in enrollment is not hurting her financially. But she said she has counseled people interested in opening preschools on Vashon to think hard about it and consider if doing so is eco-

7:'4TFFTBOPOHPJOHHSPXUIJOJUTFBSMZDIJMEIPPEQSPHSBNT While many programs that cater to preschool children are seeing a decline in numbers, Vashon Youth & Family Services, which has several offerings for young families, is seeing an upsurge in people participating in its early childhood services. “We’re busy,� said Ken Maaz, VYFS executive director. “There’s a lot going on.� The agency’s programs include play groups, support groups for parents of babies and toddlers, parenting workshops and one-on-one parent coaching. It makes sense that the numbers at VYFS might go up when preschools go down,

before and after school program at Chautauqua, numbers are down, according to Dalinda Vivero, the program’s long-time manager. Eight years ago, she said, there were three staff people in the afternoon and 32 kids. Now, the staff has been cut back to two people and there are 18 kids. Last summer, the program had about 20 percent fewer kids than in earlier years. Numbers are up a bit in the morning, she said, but not enough to outweigh the decrease in the afternoon. “We’re barely surviving,� she said. The program’s financial challenges stem from lower numbers and the end of its involvement with the YMCA, which provided the program with important funding. Now Vashon

Maaz said, because the many parents with limited funds could attend the playgroups and reap their benefits and those of other programs for a modest amount of money. VYFS delivers Welcome Baby baskets to all families on the Island with newborns, and Maaz said they have noticed a decrease in those in the last year or so. He attributes the Island’s decrease in the numbers of babies and young children to the high cost of living here and the time and expense of the ferry commute. “We lose a lot of our young adults,� he said. “It is not easy to come back.�

Kids is a program of Vashon Youth & Family Services, and she and others are looking for new funding sources. The need for the program is apparent, she said: Last year, the program handed out $36,000 worth of scholarships; this year it has given out $40,000 worth. It’s a similar story at Chautauqua Elementary School, where Principal Jody Metzger — like her counterparts at McMurray and Vashon High School — is actively recruiting offIsland students to bolster the school’s ranks. This year, 15 children commute to the elementary school from offIsland, she said, including four kindergartners. Excluding preschool students, there are 502 students at Chautauqua now, compared to 615 students

in 2004 and 588 students in 2005. What’s more, the larger classes are the older classes, Metzger noted, with 100 fifth-graders compared to 75 kindergartners and 86 first graders. This year there are only two classes of second grade; typically there have been three. Metzger said she believes the school’s declining enrollment is connected to the poor economy and the high cost of living on Vashon. To weather this difficult time, she said, the district will need to be responsive to the community and reach out to others so that it can continue offering all that it wants to for a high-quality education. “That takes money, and that takes enrollment,� she said.

On Vashon, some express concern about statewide liquor initiative By LESLIE BROWN Staff Writer

An initiative that would privatize the sale of spirits would likely put Vashon’s one liquor store out of business. Cherry Morgan, co-owner of Vashon Liquor, says that she and her business partner Karen Lindskog would be hard-pressed to keep their doors open if Initiative 1183 passed. That’s because the two women run what’s called a contract liquor store: They’re selling liquor provided by the state Liquor Control Board, Morgan said, not inventory they purchased themselves. The small store in the center of town carries about $300,000 in inventory, Morgan said. “We’d have to come up with that money ourselves,� she said. With ballots for the Nov. 8 mail-in election now in voters’ hands, Morgan said she’s worried about her store’s fate. “I’m scared to death,� she said. “It would almost certainly close us down.� Were the measure to pass, liquor would most likely be sold at Vashon Thriftway and Vashon Market, the Island’s two grocery stores and the only places large enough to carry the product, according to the initiative’s language. Only stores 10,000 square feet or larger could sell liquor under the measure’s requirements — a criteria Thriftway and Vashon Market meet. Kim Williams, store director at Thriftway, said the business hasn’t figured out what it would do, should the initiative pass. “If it does pass, then you have to think about how you would incorporate it,� Williams said. “But to be honest, I haven’t put a lot of thought into it.�

At Vashon Market, owner Don Stolz said he’s troubled by the initiative. Stolz, who operates five small grocery stores, said the initiative favors what he and others call mega-grocery stores, such as Costco, which has poured more than $20 million into the “Yes on 1183 Coalition.� Just last week, Costco made its largest contribution to date — nearly $9 million to the yes campaign. Stolz says the big retailers support the measure because it would allow only those grocers that own warehouses to purchase directly from distillers and bypass distributors; Washington, according to the Washington Food Industry Association, which represents independent grocery stores, would be the only state in the nation to allow this. “This initiative just completely tips upside down the distribution system that’s out there right now,� Stolz said. “It completely changes the whole picture.� The initiative has become the most expensive campaign in state history — with the two sides raising more than $34 million to battle the measure. Costco has been the largest single contributor, state records show. Opposition has been led by the Wine & Spirits Wholesalers of America, which has pumped nearly $9 million into maintaining the status quo. Those who support the measure say they do so in large part because it would get the state out of liquor sales, putting the government into the position of regulating the market, not owning it. Several newspapers, including the Seattle Times, have come out in favor of the initiative; the state, many note, is one of only a few that sells liquor.

Cherry Morgan, left, and Karen Lindskog say Initiative 1183 would likely force them to close. But on Vashon, where alcohol use among teens is above the state average, some are voicing concern about a measure that may make it easier for people to obtain spirits. “It’s too high a price to pay,� said Robin Blair, who chairs the Vashon Alliance to Reduce Substance Abuse (VARSA) and lost a

OPINION Vashon-Maury

EDITORIAL

Should commissioners get paid? We think not Last year, the five commissioners who make up the Vashon Island Fire & Rescue board received, all told, $16,932. How? For the most part, simply by attending board meetings. The five members who make up the Vashon Island School Board also attended a lot of meetings last year. Their collective take? Zero. That, too, was the compensation offered to the Vashon Park District board and Vashon’s cemetery board. When it comes to civic duty, it appears, our Island places a much higher value on those who oversee the fire department than those who oversee our schools, parks or cemetery. This is not, of course, the fire commissioners’ fault. According to state statute, each fire commissioner “shall� receive a per diem of $104. Water District 19’s three commissioners also receive a $104 per diem — which last year amounted to a little more than $6,000 in pay. The sewer district’s three commissioners receive $90 per diem, again by state statute. The school board, meanwhile, “may� receive a per diem of $50. The board has not opted to do so. The fire board recently grappled with this issue. Last year, when its per diem climbed from $90 to $104, the five Islanders on the commission — prompted by a motion by then-Commissioner Gayle Sommers — opted not to take the higher compensation. A fire commissioner must actively waive the pay the state so generously mandates. On Vashon, those on the board at the time did so — but only as it applied to the $14 per day increase. The issue came up at last week’s debate, when Jake Jacobovitch, a veteran of Vashon’s public commissions, asked the four candidates for two seats on the fire commission if they’d consider waiving their per diems. Sure, all four said, they would consider it — but no one pledged on the spot to do so. We think the candidates — as well as the incumbents — should pledge to do so. Except for the fact that it’s a statutory fluke of Washington law, there’s no rational reason that fire commissioners should make a per diem and school board members not. The fire department has a $4.4 million budget, the school district a $14.5 million budget. The fire department employs 28 people, the school district 120. The fire department performs a very important function, responding, as it does, to life-threatening emergencies. But how can one argue that the education of our young people is any less important? The threat of a poorly educated populace may not be as imminent as the threat of a heart attack — but it’s no less real or profound, and its impact, over the long-haul, could be far-reaching. We assume Islanders run for various board positions out of a sense of civic duty. If that’s the case, there’s no reason a commissioner should receive up to $104 to sit at a 90-minute board meeting. Direct expenses — the travel costs of attending an offIsland meeting — should of course be covered. But voluntary governance — the bi-weekly or even weekly work of an elected commissioner — should not.

Most of us will agree that we frequently experience weird weather around here, so it’s high time we put colorful names to these widely varied atmospheric conditions. When I moved to the Pacific Northwest from subtropical Miami with my wife Susan, many South Florida friends seriously questioned our sanity for even thinking of living in a place where, as they said, “it rains all the time.� Living on Vashon Island for over 20 years has taught us nothing could be farther from the truth. In fact, the word rain describes only a tiny fraction of the actual weather here. This was shown to us one morning when a neighbor referred to the light precipitation as mizzle. Seeing our puzzlement, he patiently explained to us newcomers that when it’s more than mist but not quite drizzle, there’s a very good chance what it is is mizzle. My fascination with weird weather words began with that neighborly initiation into Pacific Northwest weather nomenclature. With a love of wordplay inherited from my parents, many whimsical weather words have come to mind

WEATHER By RICHARD ROGERS in the following decades. I reasoned that if the Inuit people have 100 words for snow, here in the Pacific Northwest we surely must have at least 100 words for rain. I discovered that familiar weather words such as mist, fog, drizzle, rain, sleet and snow can be combined to create many new words that more accurately describe specific weather conditions. So in gradations between fog and drizzle you could experience fozzle or drog. Likewise there are subtle weather conditions found between rain and drizzle that could be named razzle and drizzain. Combining snow and drizzle yields snizzle and drizzow. Combining two words to form another is known as portmanteau, the French word for suitcase. This writing technique was first used

.D$VMMPVHIIBTNBOZ years of experience I am writing to express my support for Candy McCullough as our fire commissioner in Position 4. Her many years of experience as a firefighter, her abilities to improve response times and her determination to enhance disaster preparedness on Vashon make Candy singularly qualified for the job. She has proven herself to be fiscally responsible, with a deep understanding of what it takes to keep us safe and prepared for the unexpected. Candy is a passionate leader. I look forward to seeing her retain her seat on the board. — Emily MacRae

Thanks to The Beachcomber, Voice of Vashon and moderator Susan McCabe for hosting the candidate’s forum for the two fire commissioner positions. Watching how these candidates answered questions and interacted with the audience made me proud to be an Islander. All are strong candidates and each would be a fine commissioner. I’m supporting Joe Ulatoski for Position 4. Joe will bring the 30,000-foot view to the position. He would never get bogged down in the minutia of the operations of the department, but rather would provide a broad and detailed overview of how the department interacts with our

by Lewis Carrol in “Through the Looking Glass� to create one word carrying two. Understanding the intricacies of weather can readily be compared to the appreciation of fine wine. Why settle for the generic house white when the subtle complexity of a Pinot Grigio or Zinfandel is far more satisfying? If it’s drizzaining today and you want to stay indoors, consider combining three familiar weather words to create hundreds of new words such as razzlebow, froudyleet or slizzlesnog. Given time, patience and a healthy obsession, by combining four familiar weather words you can create thousands of new weirdly whimsical weather words such as frosailclouzzle, drizzeetsnizzle or haizzlesnowbow. The combinations are almost endless. Whatever you choose to call the weather in this part of the world, our persistent precipitation deserves a far more interesting name than just plain rain. — Richard Rogers, a graphic designer and web developer, is a writer for Vashon’s Church of Great Rain.

After only five months as a fire commissioner, she has only just begun. We have a well-functioning, hard-working, collaborative and forward-looking fire board working for us. Let’s keep it going.

ity and experience motivating volunteers will be essential! If you are aware of Joe’s leadership in founding VashonBePrepared and the Neighborhood Emergency Response Organization (NERO) and new Business NERO programs, you know there is no better volunteer organizer. In addition to his winning personality, tireless dedication and smile, Joe has a clear, intelligent and inspired message for volunteers. To wit, only Joe actually recruited volunteers for VIFR at the debate. Rather than just talk about it, Joe embodies the spirit of volunteerism. Joe’s done much for VashonBePrepared; it’ll be great to see his energies working for VIFR. — John Cornelison & Kim Farrell

6MBUPTLJTWJUBMJUZXPVME JOTQJSFWPMVOUFFST Thanks to The Beachcomber and Voice of Vashon (VoV) for hosting the fire commissioner debate last Thursday. Joe Ulatoski’s call for VIFR to create a plan for the future — transitioning from a reactive to a proactive posture — is vital, so it is mystifying that the incumbents downplay the value of such a plan. (See the debate video at www.VoiceOfVashon.org, 36:15 minutes in for this.) As critical, though, is to recognize Joe’s unique skill in inspiring volunteers. In VIFR’s unique role as a combination volunteer and staffed organization, Joe’s vital-

#PUI.D$VMMPVHIBOE5VSOFS BSFXPSUISFUBJOJOH Vashon Island Fire & Rescue has had its ups and downs, and I believe that the current board and staff reflect a fine balance: community-minded while also safeguarding the institution itself. Balance is the key, and for this reason, I whole-heartedly support Candy McCullough. She has been a volunteer with VIFR for close to 25 years and has served in about every capacity: firefighter, instructor, supervisor, volunteer officer. And she knows the union issues, as well, as a career firefighter with Boeing. She has been a quiet and effective leader, keeping a cool head in difficult situations both at

Boeing and VIFR. I was very pleased that she was selected to replace me. I could not and cannot imagine anyone better. I also endorse Ron Turner. I worked with Ron on the fire board for five years. Is he the easiest person to get along with? Absolutely not: He can be disrespectful, sarcastic and intransigent. However, I have seen a lot of what he advocated for privately and publicly come to fruition: the addition of volunteers who may not do any actual firefighting but who provide support for those who do; shifts of staff and volunteers working together to build an esprit de corps; lieutenants or captains responsible for every shift. In retrospect, all of these seem obvious, but it took Ron pushing behind the scenes for these to happen (and a fellow “Coastie� in our fire chief to translate Ron’s ideas into reality). We need both Candy and Ron, and I urge you to vote to retain them. VIFR and the Vashon community will continue to be well-served.

.D$VMMPVHITQPTJUJWF BQQSPBDIJTOFFEFE I strongly support retaining Candy McCullough on the Vashon Island Fire & Rescue’s board of commissioners. Candy is the most experienced candidate as she is presently serving on the board and was an active responder with VIFR for over 25 years. Her positive, collaborative, leadership approach is needed. She brings a keen awareness of the role these commissioners

On behalf of Mark P. Waterman Masonic Lodge I would like to thank our Vashon neighbors for their generous support of our 2011 public school library fundraising campaign. This summer we raised $3,000 for the Becky Braicks Fund established to purchase critically needed books and resources for our children’s libraries. Becky Braicks was a neighbor who volunteered in our school libraries for over 15 years. Upon her passing, the Braicks family established a fund to continue her legacy. The principal of the fund is depleted and the Freemasons targeted it for community service in 2011. As a result of state budget cuts, Chautauqua Elementary School does not employ a certified librarian, required to be present for a full classroom of students to be in a library. Vashon school libraries do not have resources to update history or social science data bases, purchase Kindles to meet student demand or hire professional computer research instructors. New fiction and art collections are stagnant. In this time of historic social and political change, our school libraries are unthinkably frozen. Statistics demonstrate that children exposed to robust library programs by the third grade have a greater likelihood of attending college. Library use is linked to improved standardized test scores. Is there any persuasive argument that our children’s lives should be constrained for want of access to a rich literary resource? Many contributions came from our neighbors with limited means. Senior citizens on fixed income, students and other neighbors for whom every dollar counts responded to support our libraries. Thanks to Thriftway, Superintendent Soltman and librarians Julie Jaffe and Peggy Kallsen for their support. These fine people are working

Thank you,Todd & Jeff Gateman Where else but Vashon will you find such willing and qualified help? Sunday morning, September 25, up by Cedarhurst out on Colvos Pass, a Sea Lion sank my boat, in 50ft of water on my buoy, trying to get into it. Weather stayed rough until Tuesday when Jeff and Todd came by in Jeff’s boat from the Yacht Club to retrieve my boat. Diving down to disconnect the buoy and hook up a drag line. We drug the boat on the bottom +/-110 yds. to shore and partly out, a 14ft. alum w/25 Yamaha 4 stroke and electric start and stuff, pulled drain plug and waited for tide to go out. Without them, the boat would still probably be on the bottom or damaged. Thanks for taking at least 7 hrs. out of your busy day to salvage my boat. After tide went out and boat drained, Baxter, Fletcher and Ellen Call w/William helped wrestle boat up onto trailer and up to my yard. Thanks everybody; also a lot of offers to help from others, but we got her out– Doug McGar

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

We’ve been using that list you gave us of the various tradesmen and contractors on the island, but we’ve had a hard time getting people to come when we need them. Cleaning people seem to have to book us way ahead and sometimes the gardeners don’t show up until the day after we wanted them to come. Is this part of what they call “Vashon time?� We’re really disappointed in the level of services available.

A:

We all laugh about “Vashon time�, but actually it’s just about living in a small community. Keep in mind that many of the cleaning people may also be working at other jobs as well and trying hard to make ends meet and raise their family. The gardeners, contractors, and small one and two person businesses, as in most small towns, are running as fast as they can to get to everybody who needs their skills. I recommend you cut these folks some slack. That doesn’t mean that you should put up with constant excuses, poor workmanship or outrageous prices. But the vast majority of people working on Vashon are doing the best they can and will be there when you need them. Everyday I see contractor trucks of many kinds coming onto the Island from the city. I don’t blame people for calling in a larger outfit if they’re not happy with local folks or when they’re in a real hurry. But over the years it’s been the local folks who came out in any kind of weather and fixed whatever problems I and my clients have had, and I’m grateful for that. Part of community building, (a current buzzword), is buying local, using local workers and supporting local businesses. We have some extraordinary people here doing just about every kind of thing you can think of and I believe we should all try to support them. It doesn’t mean putting up with shoddy work, bad attitudes or higher prices; it just means trying to use local folks and local businesses as much as possible.

ashon Allied Arts is gearing up to present the third installment of its popular Arts & Humanities Series, and tickets are selling fast. The ambitious series, coordinated on a volunteer basis by Islanders Mike and Gerry Feinstein, is a can-do story of how two people, with one very good idea, can make a difference. The series was born a few years ago, when Gerry scheduled a meeting with Molly Reed, Vashon Allied Arts’ executive director, to suggest that VAA should consider presenting lectures by writers and other esteemed figures in the arts. For Gerry, the meeting ended on a positive but unexpected note — she was recruited by Reed to spearhead the new series. “I went home to Mike, and told him, ‘You and I are going to develop a lecture series,’� she recalled with a laugh. The Feinsteins, who moved to the Island in 1995 after working on the East Coast for many years, seem well suited to the task. While living in Washington, D.C., they had been devotees of the museum lecture series presented by the Smithsonian Institution and avid fans of the PEN/ Faulkner lectures held at the Folger Shakespeare Library. And after moving to Vashon, they regularly hopped on the ferry to attend talks presented by Seattle Arts and Lectures. Both Mike and Gerry also have had long careers writing, editing and producing publications for businesses, associations and universities, so they bring well-honed logistical and communications skills to the process of presenting the lecture series. But beyond all that, the series seems much more than a sideline or a mere volunteer stint for the Feinsteins — more like an unexpected passion in their lives that has allowed them to make connections with people they admire and simultaneously give back to their community. “It’s a big job, but we’ve never done anything this much fun,� Gerry said. They say they have been thrilled by Islanders’ responses to the series and the fact that it has been a sold-out success story. “Somewhere along the way we struck a chord,� Mike said, adding that he’s been gratified by the way he and Gerry are now often approached by Islanders with ideas for the series. “This is the way we know it’s working,� Gerry said. “It’s become self-perpetuating.� Gerry and Mike said that their audiences are comprised of people of all ages, and the series has attracted an audience base so devoted that they have received phone calls from Islanders who want to know the schedule in advance so they can plan their vacations around the talks. “That’s the ultimate compliment,� Gerry said.

VARSA CONTINUED FROM 1

Grant that Vashon Youth & Family Services received about three years ago. Luke McQuillin, who oversees VARSA as coordinator of the grant, said the task force doesn’t expect to eliminate public drinking or drug use. However, he said, VARSA believes making physical changes will go a long way to removing illicit activities from public places and make them seem less acceptable anywhere on Vashon, where teen alcohol and drug use is significantly higher than the state average. In the 2010 Healthy Youth Survey, about 90 percent of 12th graders said they believed that if they drank on Vashon they would not be caught by police. “What it will start showing is that the community is

intolerant of this,� he said of the physical changes in the works. “That’s a big piece to changing perceptions around the community.� The idea that the physical environment can influence crime rates is not new. VARSA’s project, now about a year in the making, follows an approach called crime prevention through environmental design, or CPTED. The concept’s principles have been practiced in communities across the country since the 1970s and much-hailed in books and articles about urban renewal and community development. Last winter, VARSA volunteers spent time surveying locations reported by community members to be popular spots for teen drinking and drug use, scouting the “hot spots� at night to see first-hand how they were used. After narrowing its list

to nine locations to address first, VARSA hired Duane Dietz, an Island landscape architect certified in CPTED design, to make recommendations about what could change at each spot to discourage illegal activities. Ed Swan, who helped collect data and approach business managers and property owners with the recommendations, said everyone was open to making changes at their property, even if it meant paying for the work themselves. In doing so, he added, they could make their property safer and cut back on litter there. “Everyone is pretty much on board because often there are real hassles involved for them,� he said. Many of the CPTEDinspired changes will involve bringing more visibility to places that provide cover by cutting back brush or installing light-

ing. Sometimes, Swan said, a solution is as simple as fixing a light that has long been broken. Other businesses will opt to go farther, gating off parking lots or installing security cameras. VARSA is paying for a motion-sensor light to be installed at the Village Green, which Swan called “a place people feel uncomfortable walking after dark.� Soon, he said, the light will make it more uncomfortable for people to drink or do drugs there at night. “Hanging out there is cool, but shooting up or doing some kind of illegal activity is going to be noticed,� he said. At the woods behind Ober Park, another place known to hide illegal activities, VARSA hopes to see an informal trail widened, opening up visibility in the woods and making it into a more public place. A Boy Scout has already expressed

interest in creating the trail for his Eagle Scout project. “Altogether, that will be part of a process of saying, ‘hey, the community is here and enjoying these areas ‌ It’s not for partying,’â€? Swan said. The Vashon Pharmacy, as many have noticed, is already implementing CPTED recommendations that VARSA presented. Tom Langland, who owns the pharmacy with Dave Willingham, said the two of them have long been concerned about safety at the “pocket parkâ€? directly south of the pharmacy building. For years, they’ve had to deal with drug- and alcohol-related litter at the spot and occasionally call the police to remove people from the site, Langland said. After VARSA approached them, encouraging them to take action, they decided to address the problem by removing seating and bush-

%VNQ7BTIPOUPIJHIMJHIUUIFWPMVNFTPGBMDPIPMSFMBUFEUSBTI As part of its efforts to end a common perception that substance abuse is tolerated on Vashon, the Vashon Alliance to Reduce Substance Abuse (VARSA) will put on its second Dump Vashon event. On Saturday morning, students and other volunteers will comb Vashon Highway and other main roads for trash. They hope to not only make the Island a cleaner place but also educate the community about the Island’s large amount of alcohol-related trash. At the first Dump Vashon event last spring, volunteers picked up 300 pounds of litter. Robin Blair, who chairs VARSA and helps organize the youth-led event, said that nearly two thirds of the trash was alcohol related — mostly beer cans. “Doing this project gives us an opportunity to paint a vision of what trash looks like when it’s picked up off our Island,� Blair said.

The event, organized by a group of students from Vashon High School, is put on in partnership with King County’s Adopt-A-Road program. Some groups that have adopted roads will use the event to fulfill their littercollecting requirement, and student volunteers will work to recruit even more groups to adopt Vashon roads. The work isn’t done when the trash is picked up, though. Students will photograph and document the litter, collecting information to be shared with the community and spurring conversation about teen drinking. “If you have a community that is aware if its surroundings and does a good job taking care of the environment, you’re generally a better place,� Blair said. For more information or to volunteer at the event, contact Robin Blair at 617-5190 or robineblair@gmail.com.

es. Next month the area will be planted with low, native shrubs and a footpath will be created from the parking lot to the sidewalk. “It’s not meant to be a park to spend the day in, but a pleasant-looking green space,� Langland said. At the same time, they’ve decided to remove the parking lot entrance on Vashon Highway — an unsafe place where a child was recently hit, he said. “We thought maybe we can solve a whole bunch of different problems at once,� Langland said. Vashon Presbyterian Church has taken action as well. Volunteers cleared much of the brush from the church’s large parking lot, which is known to be a spot for drinking. The church’s pastor, Rev. Dan Houston, said he used to find piles of alcohol bottles and cans in the lot but has seen far fewer since the bushes people hid behind were cut back. He feels it’s now a safer place for people to park at night. “It hasn’t completely stopped people, but the amount of drinking has decreased immensely,� he said. Houston applauded VARSA’s efforts to deter public drinking and drug use and hopes the church’s participation in the project sends a message that Vashon cares about teen substance abuse. “I’m pleased that on Vashon there is a profound ownership of everyone,� he said.

Soccer fights to win a tough match By DON AMICK For The Beachcomber

Corinne Pruett, 1, leads her teammates as the Pirate volleyball players shake hands with their opponents after a win during homecoming week.

Pirate volleyball makes history Team takes the league championship for first time By CHERYL PRUETT For The Beachcomber

For the first time since Vashon High School’s inaugural volleyball team took to the court in 1979, the Pirates have won the Nisqually League championship. The girls are still undefeated in league play after beating a very tough Life Christian team on Monday, Oct. 17, and then winning a match at Orting two days later, which sealed their league victory. To make the win extra sweet, the team was officially ranked by the state WIAA in the Seattle Times for the first time — the Pirates are currently ranked 10th. Coach Kara Sears said that this year’s team is strong with 10 seniors. Though they didn’t start the season with a goal of winning the championship, she said they knew

it was an option and consistently pushed themselves to work hard. “They understand it takes one day at a time and one step at a time to reach their goals,� she said. Sears said she has seen the team improve since last year. For example, at the beginning of last season, their passes were 19 percent perfect. Now, they are at about 60 percent. “They understand that passing is key to the game,� she said. Vashon’s last regular season game is tomorrow at 4 p.m., when they will take on Seattle Christian in an away game that won’t affect their league standing. Since the Pirates are the Nisqually League champions, they will host the first round of district playoffs. Details on date and time will be available as soon as the regular season ends. — Cheryl Pruett is the mother of a Vashon volleyball player.

Serving Vashon Island Since 1929

Looking to avenge an early season home loss, the Pirate girls soccer team traveled to Orting on Thursday to take on the Cardinals. Following last Tuesday’s 5-0 win over Life Christian, Thursday’s match was a crucial game that would determine second place in the Nisqually League. Vashon put together what could be the goal of the year just two minutes into the game. Six combined passes emanating from the Vashon defensive third eventually made it to the left wing. Junior Lena DeGuzman crossed a perfectly weighted ball to the sprinting senior Olivia Andrus, who onetouched an inside-of-the-foot shot past the Orting goalie for an early 1-0 lead. This was a precursor to the entire first half, as Vashon dominated possession. Senior Denise Griffith and sophomore Llira McEachern took control of the midfield, looking almost telepathic at times, working the ball from one side of the field to the other. They were moving well to open spaces, being patient with their decisions and playing with style. Orting, on the other hand used quick counter attacks and long through passes to

Tarriers beat Pirates in away football game By BRIAN BRENNO For The Beachcomber

The Vashon Pirates faced league-leading Charles Wright at an away game on Friday, coming away with a 33-14 loss. Vashon received the opening kickoff and was forced to punt on fourth down. The Tarriers drove deep into Pirate territory, but on fourth and five at the

10-yard line, Owen Brenno stopped them short, and the ball was turned over on downs to the Pirates. The Pirates, using the I-formation, concentrated on their running game, moved the ball past midfield, then on fourth down attempted a fake punt that was stopped short. Charles Wright had a three-play drive for a touchdown, putting them ahead

at 7-0. Starting the second quarter, both teams failed attempts at converting on fourth down, leading to Vashon getting the ball at the 45-yard line. Strong running from Nick Betz behind the blocks of Ezra Ende took the Pirates into Charles Wright territory. After a 10-yard pass SEE FOOTBALL, NEXT PAGE

to Garrett Starr, quarterback Nick Amundson took a keeper in for a Vashon touchdown. The two-point conversion was no good, and the score was close at 7-6. Charles Wright scored one more time in the first half, with Nick Betz blocking the extra point kick, and the Tarriers widened their lead to 13-6. Charles Wright took over the game in the second half, scoring twice in the third quarter and started the fourth quarter leading 27-6. Vashon had a nice drive to begin the fourth quarter, but again was unable to convert on fourth down. Charles

Wright then drove in for a touchdown, bringing their lead to 33-6. Kevin Thomas recovered a Charles Wright fumble at the 45-yard line, leading to a Vashon drive ending with a 40-yard run for a touchdown by Nick Amundson. The twopoint conversion was good, and the game ended with a final score of Charles Wright 33, Vashon 14. While not happy with losing, head coach Clay Eastly said he felt “the team had taken a big step forward� in the quality and intensity of their play.

senior goalie Courtney Gateman scuttled the shot, and the ball def lected off of Orting for a goal kick to preserve the 1-0 halftime lead. After the halftime break, the pressure mounted immediately on the Pirates as Orting was relentless in keeping the ball in the Vashon half of the field. At the 42nd minute, a sliding save by Gatemen brought out cheers from the Vashon faithful. A minute later, Pirate striker Cat Amick hustled into the corner, collected the ball and sliced an angled pass to DeGuzman for a left-footed shot from 20 yards that just missed its mark. It was back-and-forth, end-to-end action until the 51st minute, when an Orting midfielder powered in the equalizer on a free kick from 25 yards out. Buoyed by their success, the Cardinals kept up their pace, with the Pirates starting to look tired. Six minutes later, an Orting striker nailed a shot into the Pirates’ net. It was gut check time as the Pirates had 23 minutes remaining to make their claim to second place in the league and a much improved position for the playoffs. It was only a minute from the Orting goal when Vashon freshman Madison Chapman deftly touched the ball to Amick, who, noticing she had drawn the two remaining Orting defenders to her, pushed

out a pass to DeGuzman on the left wing and with a soft touch set up one of her patented left-footed rockets into the back of the old onion bag to tie the game at 2-2. Following that shot by only two minutes, Amick floated in a long shot from 35 yards out. Low and behold, the Orting goalie fumbled the ball, it trickled over the line and the Pirates found themselves up 3-2. In the 65th minute, a Pirate defensive gem was required to stymie the Cardinal attack. A perfectly paced through pass was pushed ahead of the goal scorer. Pirate freshman defender Mykah Shiosaki was sprinting next to her with senior Alex Wall also hurrying to help. The Orting striker managed the shoulder charge from Shiosaki and then somehow cleared though Wall to set up a right-footed shot from only 10 yards out. But the game would not be tied thanks to a recovering Shiosaki sliding back in front to clear the ball out to Pirate fullback Harper Howard. Fifteen minutes were left, and the Island fans were nervous, hoping for an insurance goal. They got their wish in the 71st minute when DeGuzman banked in a cross towards Andrus, which deflected off an Orting defender right to a waiting Amick, who half-volleyed it to the back of the net to guarantee a wellearned victory and second place in the league going into playoffs. — Don Amick is the father of a Vashon soccer player and a former youth soccer coach.

McMurray then traveled to Showalter, where they battled that team to a 4-4 tie in a very exciting match. Showalter took an early 3-0 lead, only to see the Mustangs close the gap to 3-2 before halftime. McMurray then tied the game up, then Showalter regained the lead, 4-3.

DEBATE CONTINUED FROM 1

which he said is currently reactive rather than proactive. Ulatoski, 84, is a retired Army brigadier general who about a decade ago helped start VashonBePrepared. “I think we’ve got to change the direction of the board, and we’ve got to be more proactive,â€? he said. McCullough, who is looking to retain Position 4, pointed to her 30 years of experience in firefighting, climbing the ranks both as a VIFR volunteer and Boeing firefighter. Appointed to the fire board in June after Gayle Sommers resigned to spend time traveling, 53, said that as a commissioner she provides the board “essential and relevant insightâ€? into the department. Deborah Brown, who is challenging incumbent Ron Turner in a contest that so far has not included a public campaign, called herself a “straight shooter,â€? and, like Ulatoski, said the board should be more proactive. A 15-year VIFR volunteer and head of the department’s Explorers program, Brown, 52, said she has built connections all over the Island through her many paid and volunteer positions on Vashon. “I understand this community. ‌ I don’t represent one particular group,â€? she said. Turner, for his part, said his time on the board is proof of his qualifications. Turner, who is 61 and a retired Coast Guard senior chief, said he has not sat on his hands over the last half-dozen years but been

a strict policy enforcer and played a part in the department as it turned its image around. “I want to be reelected because, by golly, we’re doing a good job, and who wouldn’t want to be a part of it,� he said. Questions posed the candidates ran the gamut: Several were curious how they would handle potential budget cuts or increase volunteerism. One Islander, early in the night, asked about the gender discrimination suit the department lost a few years ago. Another asked if anything could be done about the paucity of fire hydrants on Vashon. Much of the discussion focused on VIFR’s financial picture — an issue of import, candidates and questioners noted, because of the uncertain future of the King County EMS (Emergency Medical Services) levy. The EMS levy doesn’t expire until the end of 2013, but all four expressed concern about the situation, noting that if voters failed to pass another levy it could prove disastrous for Vashon. Turner, for instance, said that because of the down economy, he is concerned some cities may choose to implement their own EMS levy rather than continue to give to smaller cities in the county. For years Vashon’s EMS funding has been subsidized by other parts of the King County, as Islanders pay about $750,000 to the county-wide property tax and the department receives about $2 million in return — half of VIFR’s total budget. “I don’t know if there’s STORY CONTINUES, NEXT PAGE

anything we can do about it,� he said. Adamantly against a new Vashon tax, Turner said that if the department were to lose funding, Islanders or insurance providers may have to pay for EMS transports that are currently free. Brown, who is challenging Turner, said that losing the levy would likely translate into longer response times on Vashon. She added that her grant writing skills could come into play to bring more money into the department. She also said she had the communication skills to lobby the county on Vashon’s behalf, “being that voice, that face so we are a presence for those that make that decision,� she said. Ulatoski said there should be no new taxes unless lives are in danger. Like Brown, he said the board should be more proactive with King County. Ulatoski, who has worked with King County officials through his involvement with VashonBePrepared, said the first step should be to “get a hold of elected officials.� McCullough agreed that the department may have to ultimately charge for transports, but added that increased volunteer-

ism could possibly make up for any paid positions that are lost. “Maybe (we could) find a corps of volunteers who want to do transports again,� she said. When questioned about how the candidates would make cuts if the department were to lose a large chunk of its funding, all four gave more or less the same answer — that equipment replacement was the first thing to go. And when one audience member pointed out that commissioners are paid about $90 for each twice-monthly meeting they attend, the candidates gave vague replies. All suggested they would do the job for nothing, but none committed to turning down the per diem if they remained on or were elected to the board. When the state a few years ago increased fire commissioners’ per diem from $90 to $104, Turner waived the increase along with the rest of the board at the time and continues to receive $90. McCullough accepted the $104 per diem when she joined the board this summer. Toward the beginning of the night, some

5XPDBOEJEBUFTWJFGPSBTFBUPOUIFDFNFUFSZEJTUSJDUCPBSE Island voters get to decide on one other contested race in the Nov. 8 election: Jake Jacobovitch is challenging Tom Lorentzen for a seat on the three-person cemetery district board. On Jacobovitch’s part, however, it’s an unintentional challenge. He’d heard that Lorentzen, 83, wasn’t interested in another six-year term on the board, so he called him to see where he stood. “He said he’d be more than happy if I ran for the position and that he was only doing it because he was afraid no one else would,� Jacobovitch recalled. But Lorentzen had already filed by then, and Jacobovitch only discovered much later that he hadn’t

withdrawn his name. “I like to give back,� Jacobovitch added when asked why he’s running. “I just know that bringing new energy to the table is always a good thing.� Lorentzen, for his part, said he opted to remain on the ballot but not to campaign for the post. “I decided that since it was only one meeting a month, that’s something I could still do,� he said, adding, “It allows me once a month to check on my grave site.� Lorentzen says has been on the cemetery district board for about 20 years. Jacobovitch, a well-known civic player on Vashon, has served terms on both the school board and park district board.

candidates set themselves apart in their opinion about long-range plans for the department. Ulatoski said all decisions should be made according to the dictates of an overarching plan. “Where is the overall plan that governs the department? There is none, and that’s what we have to have to move forward and something I advocate,� he said. McCullough, however, named several plans the department has created in the past, and said tax dollars have been spent to compose “goals and objectives that we may not achieve.� Rather than create yet another plan, McCullough said the department should “focus on one or two things in the old plan.� All candidates listed the recruitment of more on-Island volunteers as one of their top priorities, saying it would work to improve the department’s often belowstandard response times. However, they had different ideas about how volunteer numbers could be boosted. McCullough, who recently volunteered to be the board’s liaison to the department’s recruitment and retention coordinators, believes that the climate at VIFR changed after paid firefighters and paramedics were brought on, which still discourages some from volunteering. “The culture has not embraced local volunteerism the last 15 years.� Besides saying Islanders should know that the climate has actually improved, McCullough also offered a couple of concrete ideas to gain volunteers. She said former volunteers might be willing to return to service if they didn’t have to retake a

Page 23

six-month training course, or perhaps the county could recognize a first-responder course some non-volunteers have already taken. Ulatoski, for his part, said the community simply needs to change its attitude toward volunteers, giving them more “praise and appreciation.� He thinks more volunteers could be recruited by word of mouth. Brown, running for position one, agreed that some have negative feelings about being a VIFR volunteer. She said the department should make it clear not only that the climate is more positive now, but volunteer expectations are clearer and more structured. She believes that would “go a long way to get people.� Turner said he was glad to see the department recently bring on the volunteer recruitment and retention coordinators and believed it should go with what he called a “poke and hope� system, explaining it should try different strategies until one worked. “Americans always get it right, eventually,� he said, prompting laughter from the crowd.

1-1/2 Year Olds, Lexi and her sister Lena were girls on the streets. They

were both rescued by a VIPP volunteer and enrolled in the VIPP charm school to hone their social skills. Lexi was more shy than Lena but in the last month she has really come out of her shell to become a kitty who loves to be petted. Lexi is still a shy kitty and she will do best in a quiet home. If you have patience and a quiet home these girls would do well - we recommend an indoor situation until they are very familiar with there new home.
