“For 50 years, we had a real good place.”

An era ends at a beloved clubhouse By LESLIE BROWN Staff Writer

For five decades, the South End Community Club was at the heart of a thriving neighborhood on the southern tip of Vashon. Families held monthly potlucks at the simple, two-story structure perched above the Tahlequah ferry dock. They threw Halloween parties for their kids, held Fourth of July parties replete with parades and marked milestones in their tight-knit community — graduation parties, wedding receptions, memorial services. Now, after watching the demographics of their neighborhood shift and the building fall into disuse, the 20 or so remaining members of the South End Community Club have decided to gift their property to Vashon Island Fire & Rescue. “There’s a time to finish something off if it’s not working anymore,” said Carol Slaughter, who, with her husband Al, helped build the structure. “I’m a little sad. But for 50 years, we had a real good place here.” “We had so many fun activities,” recalled Bob Hallowell, another member. The community, he added, centered around the kids — and there were a lot of them. “Now, there are almost no chil-

This spring the Seattle Institute of Oriental Medicine (SIOM) will open a satellite program on Vashon, bringing what will be the first college courses offered on the Island in recent history. The school, which currently operates at a campus near Green Lake in Seattle, purchased a 24-acre wooded property with a home on Cemetery Road. The parcel will serve as a facility for graduate students to study acupuncture during weekend-long intensives. “Chinese medicine is based in a natural medicine context,” said SIOM president Paul Karsten. “We though it would be a great idea to have students learn in a natural area.” SIOM has offered a Master’s in Acupuncture and Oriental Medicine degree since 1994 and recently added a Master’s in Acupuncture program with the intent of eventually holding classes on Vashon. Karsten said the Vashon facility

It was a move that made perfect sense, members said. The structure was built in part to provide fire service to the south end of Vashon — a fire truck is parked in the bottom half of the building — and VIFR has nearly 50 years left in the 99-year lease it

Igniting art: A garage morphs into a gallery By ELIZABETH SHEPHERD Staff Writer

During the past two Friday night gallery cruises, art lovers have beaten a path to a new destination in the heart of Vashon — a multi-use venue that combines artist studios, classroom space and a small, well-appointed gallery. The new space, Ignition Studios, has been an instant hit on Vashon, drawing hundreds to opening receptions that offer a chance to ogle artwork and stand around two outdoor fire pits to schmooze with friends and neighbors. Kids have been treated to s’mores, and Zamorana’s taco truck has parked on the premises to provide adults with south-of-theborder treats.

Best of all, it seems, Ignition Studios is located in a repurposed, historic place — a garage and shop tucked just behind and to the north of Movie Magic. The space, built in 1946, was once part of a downtown automotive complex owned and operated by the Brennos, a longtime Island family. The large garage most recently housed a boat repair shop and, before that, Brian Brenno’s glass-blowing studio. But in its new incarnation, the place presents itself as an all-purpose arts center, with huge garage doors, ample square footage, concrete floors, high ceilings and rustic retro charm. It took an Island newcomer, Lisa Hurst, to recognize the potential and pony up the cash to invest in SEE GALLERY, 11

Pertussis continues to spread on Vashon Rates higher here than other parts of county By SUSAN RIEMER Staff Writer

Five new cases of pertussis have been diagnosed on Vashon so far this month, bringing the total number of confirmed cases on the Island to 15 since Dec. 1. Public health officials first noticed a county-wide increase in the bacterial illness in December, according to James Apa, the communications manager for Public Health-Seattle & King County. Since Dec. 1, 101 cases have been reported in the county; this number compares with 98 cases in all of 2011. While pertussis is on the rise throughout the area, Vashon has been harder hit than the rest of the county, according to Dr. Tao Kwan-Gett, a medical epidemiologist with the public health department. Vashon has less than one percent of the population, he noted, and has accounted for 16 percent of the 79 cases reported so far this year. Whooping cough, as the bacterial illness is also known, ebbs and flows as part of its natural cycle, Kwan-Gett said, but he cautioned that communities need to be aware of factors that affect that cycle, including how many people are immunized against the disease. Historically, Vashon has had high numbers of people who are not immunized. Of Vashon’s 15 cases, he

noted, only one person was up to date on the pertussis vaccine. Neither the disease itself nor the vaccine is a magic bullet, he said, and neither provides lifelong immunity, but public health officials believe the the vaccine is vitally important. “Lower vaccination rates make it easier for pertussis to spread in the population,� he said. The spread of pertussis is worrisome because it can be deadly for infants, and public health officials are taking this outbreak seriously. “Because pertussis can be so dangerous for babies, we always get very concerned when there is an increase,� he said. There is no set pattern to how pertussis outbreaks unfold, he noted, and it is not possible to accurately predict what will occur from here. “We take things week by week and month by month,� he said. Officials at the public health department work directly with individuals and communities when pertussis is reported, he said. They call the families or individuals to try to determine when they might have been infected, who might be at risk of infection and who would benefit from preventative treatment, including other family members, friends, classmates and health care providers. They also look for links between the newly reported cases and previous cases, and if people do not have access to health care, public health officials arrange for appropriate treatment. To stop the spread of the illness,

Persephone Consulting A Whole Systems approach to business and workplace coaching 10904 SW 238th St. Vashon, WA 98070

Kwan-Gett encourages people to be immunized, get diagnosed and treated if they suspect they might have the illness and to stay home if they are sick. He noted that patients who seek care might have to insist on a culture for whooping cough because pertussis frequently resembles many other common respiratory infections, and health care providers must have a “high degree of suspicion� that someone has the disease in order to test for it. With antibiotics, people are no longer contagious after five days, KwanGett noted; without antibiotics people can be contagious up to 21 days after their symptoms appear. Also important to understand, he said, is that the reported numbers only tell part of the story, and it is likely pertussis is more prevalent than the numbers suggest. “The number of reported cases might seem small,� he said in a recent email, “but it’s important to remember that the reported cases are just the tip of the iceberg. Many people with pertussis never get diagnosed or reported.� At the Vashon Island School District, nurse Sarah Day said there have been confirmed cases at Chautauqua and Vashon High School but none so far at McMurray. She, too, encourages people to be responsible if they are ill and to remember that there are many vulnerable people in the community, including infants, pregnant women and people receiving chemotherapy. “They’re our neighbors and friends,� she said. “We all shop at Thriftway.�

'PPECBOLOPXPQFOPO5VFTEBZT The Vashon Maury Community Food Bank has added a food distribution day to its schedule and is now open to the community on Tuesdays and Wednesdays each week. This change has been in the works for some time, according to Yvonne Pitrof, the food bank’s executive director. For years the food bank had been open only on Wednesdays, but that one day did not work for everyone, and staff and volunteers wanted to increase its accessibility. “We often asked, ‘Are we really reaching everybody who needs us?’� she said. It was clear many people would benefit from hours on an additional day, she said, and now with some new recordkeeping procedures in place, they have the wherewithal to do so. “We’re pretty excited,� she said. Not only will this day make going to the food bank possible for those with Wednesday commitments, she said, but after just one day, staff and volunteers could see that being open on Tuesday will help keep each day’s numbers to a more manageable level. Ever since the recession began, the food bank has seen an increased number of people seeking assistance, Pitrof said. The food bank is particularly busy at the end of the month, she said, when lines of people are sometimes waiting the whole time the small outlet is open. In 2011, Pitrof noted, 15 percent of Vashon’s population relied on the food bank at least once. By year’s end, the food bank had served 653 households and 1,463 people. Distribution hours are “It was really surprising now 1 to 3 p.m. Tuesdays and 11 a.m. to 1 p.m. and to me when I saw those fig5 to 7 p.m. Wednesdays ures,� she said. “I do not with 4:30 to 5 p.m. open think anyone thought it was for seniors and disabled that high.� people. On average, she said, food bank clients use its services two and a half times a month, and Vashon is on par with the national averages for some support services. Of the people whom the food bank served last year, 27 percent were children, 14 percent were seniors and 9 percent declared themselves as homeless. — Susan Riemer

Donated gowns make another prom special High school hopes more Islanders will donate used dresses By NATALIE JOHNSON Staff Writer

Neah Lynch, a senior at Vashon High School, was unsure if she would go to prom this spring. The petite and bubbly teen didn’t want to miss her senior prom. But at the same time, she said, many of her friends weren’t planning to to go and she knew she couldn’t afford an expensive dress. That was until VHS counselor Susan Haworth pulled Lynch aside one day earlier this month and presented her with a full-length designer gown. Lynch quickly tried on the dress, and it fit her just right. “It was kind of a Cinderella moment, honestly,� Lynch said. Now Haworth hopes Islanders will help make prom night magical for even more VHS seniors by donating their once-used prom dresses. Lynch’s gown was donated by VHS graduate Lauren Symonds. Symonds, who is now 22 and attends Oregon State University, recently cleaned out her closet and asked her mother, Penni Symonds, to donate two of her old prom dresses to the high school. Penni Symonds said her daughter had held on to the dresses for a

few years for sentimental reasons, but then decided they could be put to better use. “She said, ‘I had a wonderful evening in them, so let someone else enjoy them,’� Penni Symonds said. “It was a nice gesture of Lauren to think of the high school.� Haworth, the senior counselor at VHS, said she had a great time giving away the dresses. She knew immediately that the white, strapless Jessica McClintock gown would be perfect for Lynch. Then a few of the high school’s “fashionistas,� she said, helped her find a fit for the other dress, a similar dark green, full-length gown. “I was pondering who it would fit, and some other kids helped me out,� Haworth said. “Everybody was pretty excited about finding somebody.� She said both girls were surprised and thrilled to receive the dresses. The moment was especially sweet for Lynch, who loves dresses and recognized the gown’s designer because she had purchased a used Jessica McClintock dress at a second-hand store. “I was excited to pull it out, and it was a designer I knew,� she said, “It’s a fancy dress.� Lynch said she’s now looking forward to going to prom in May and hopes to convince more of her friends to accompany her. She’s planning to dye her new gown, which is white with

a slight stain on the front. She said she’s thinking of dying it teal and perhaps adding a belt or peacock feathers for accent. “I’m happy with the way it’s turning out,� she said. “I’m excited to add stuff to it.� Haworth said she knows some organizations off-Island give away or sell donated prom dresses, but she doesn’t think dresses have been taken at VHS until now. She thinks many Islanders have nearly new prom dresses hanging in their closets that could be put to use by VHS seniors who can’t afford the spendy dresses. She believes some girls may even skip out on prom because a dress would cost too much. “(The donation) was out of the blue, but I had way too much fun with it,� she said. “So I decided to see if we had other people who wanted to donate.� As for Lynch, she says she plans to donate her dress back to the high school after prom so another girl can use it at a future dance. “It definitely makes it an easier decision to not have to buy the dress,� she said.

To donate a short or long dress for a VHS senior to wear to prom, contact Susan Haworth at shaworth@ vashonsd.org or 463-9171 ext. 501.

VIPP works hard to reunite lost dogs with their owners Volunteers have seen an uptick in lost dog reports By NATALIE JOHNSON Staff Writer

Vashon Island Pet Protectors (VIPP) recently bolstered its lost dog program, and VIPP volunteers say they’re amazed at the number of lost and loose dogs the organization has begun to handle. In January and February alone, they say, VIPP handled 53 situations involving dogs that were either lost or discovered running loose. And though VIPP didn’t keep count last year, volunteers handled 53 cases in 2010 and say the number of Island dogs they’ve helped has sharply increased over the past several months. “I’m stunned,� said Berneta Walraven, who helps coordinate VIPP’s dog program. Walraven said that recently the dog program has been infused with a wave of volunteer energy, and at the same time VIPP has formalized its procedures for responding to lost dog incidents. For the first time ever, Walraven said, there is one volunteer who coordinates the lost dog program, rather than having several people try to share the effort. Lynda Bocconcelli, a retired nurse and animal lover who moved to Vashon about a year ago, now takes all of VIPP’s calls about lost or loose dogs, advises pet owners, disseminates information and, when necessary, organizes searches. Bocconcelli said that last year it seemed like VIPP handled five

to 10 lost dogs a month. But since becoming the lost dog coordinator in January, she said, she sometimes deals with two or three lost dogs a day. “I have worked 40- and 50-hour weeks just on this,� she said. Bocconcelli believes there aren’t necessarily more lost dogs now than there were a year ago, but rather Islanders are becoming more aware of VIPP’s services. She said the organization has really spread the word by posting lost or found dog alerts on VashonAll, an email list serve that many Islanders subscribe to. “That has helped raise our awareness,� she said. Walraven agreed, and said the dog program also gained attention during a few difficult and highprofile dog rescues over the past year. In January, Frances Paresa, a 65-year-old woman new to the Island, turned to VIPP when her 14-year-old dog went missing overnight for the first time ever. VIPP put out the word for volunteer searchers, who quickly arrived at Paresa’s home. They eventually discovered that Kita, a Jack Russell terrier-Akita mix, had fallen down a steep ravine on the property and become trapped in the bushes at the bottom. “Within an hour there were 10 ladies out here going down the ravine to get my dog,� said Paresa. “I nearly fell over backward at their kindness and response.� Kita was carried out of the ravine unscathed, and a video of the rescue has been viewed more than 400 times on Facebook. Paresa, who still raves about the VIPP

volunteers, donated $500 to the organization after the incident. “I never dreamed there was such an incredible organization,� she said. Not all VIPP searches have had such happy endings, though. Amy Carey, an animal activist who is involved in the lost dog program, believes VIPP really boosted its efforts about a year ago when, after a large volunteer search effort, two Labrador retrievers were found dead at the bottom of an abandoned well. Since then, she said, VIPP’s ranks of volunteers committed to finding lost dogs have grown steadily. “I think that really kicked it off, whether it was intentional or not,� Carey said of the well incident. “It really brought home the value of ... community members coming together to help on foot like that.� Most situations VIPP handles aren’t so dramatic, Bocconcelli said. Usually when an Islander calls about a lost dog, Bocconcelli will take the information, compare it with loose dog reports and then give them simple advice about finding their pet. Dog owners — especially when they are panicked — often don’t think to search in certain places, post fliers or ask neighbors if they’ve seen their dog, she said. “These things are simple, but I wouldn’t have thought of it either ’til I started doing this,� she said. Bocconcelli said that she’s been surprised to learn how many people let their dogs wander on Vashon. Since the Island is a rural place, she said, it seems that many don’t have fenced yards and assume their dog won’t wander

— when, in fact, some take off to chase deer or other animals and end up far afield. She said she also wished more Islanders would put tags with owner information on their dogs, a simple act that would help assure their dogs’ return. “That would save us a lot of steps, if they put the contact information on the dogs,� she said. As VIPP’s efforts grow, Walraven said, the organization is still trying to decide how it will assist those owners whose pets frequently run off, animals the organization playfully calls “repeat offenders.� “It’s really sad to me that we have to continually return dogs to people who don’t seem to have a particular interest in having a dog or containing the dog they do have,� she said. “The real fear is the dog will be killed, and it’s not fair to the dog.� And as VIPP boosts its lost dog response, it is also in search of more volunteers. Bocconcelli said VIPP is searching for someone to fill in for her to coordinate the program a few days a week; it’s also looking to build its list of volunteer searchers as well as those who can temporarily foster lost dogs. Until then, Bocconcelli said, she’ll be on call seven days a week. She said the work is worth it, as most situations end with dogs being reunited with their owners. “This is all for the love of animals,� she said.

To volunteer for VIPP’s lost dog program, call 389-1085 or contact volunteer@vipp.org.

*TMBOEFSTQVTI DPVOUZUPGJOEGVOET GPSTFQUJDSFQBJST A handful of Islanders is pushing King County to find funds to help cover the costs of repairing failing septic systems along Vashon’s six Marine Recovery Areas. The group is holding a meeting with key county officials today to discuss the issue. The Islanders — including Carl Sells and Robert Keeler, both active in the Vashon-Maury Island Community Council — note that other counties have been able to assist residents with lowinterest loans and other financial programs and say King County should be able to do so as well. The call for financial aid comes after notices went out to more than 100 waterfront homeowners stating they’re in violation of county code and could face civil penalties. The county has sent out a number of letters to residents within the six marine areas over the past three years and held workshops and other meetings in an effort to get homeowners to comply. “Other counties don’t seem to have a big conflict. Why couldn’t our county find money?� asked Keeler, who’s chairing today’s meeting. But Larry Fay, an official in the county’s public health department, said officials have tried to find funds. It’s not worked, he said, in part because Islanders have not stepped forward with information about the need. “The fact that the our application was based on assumptions instead of hard data didn’t sell,� he said.

Nudibranchs add wonder to our waters

Keeping the pool afloat

These curious creatures populate the Sound

PUGET SOUND By ADRIA MAGRATH

On a recent rainy weekday, I took advantage of the afternoon’s low tide and visited our intertidal friends at the north-end ferry dock. Hoping to find some critters celebrating the lengthening days, I was happy to be greeted by numerous gelatinous egg masses adhered to the rocks. Barnacleeating dorids, Onchidoris bilamellata, laid these jelly-like sacs, each containing thousands of tiny white eggs. Dorids are nudibranchs (pronounced noodie-brank), or sea slugs, and part of the gastropod class of mollusks. Literally meaning “nude gills,� nudibranchs have frilly feather-like gills on their backs and can be quite beautiful. They also have a pair of special chemical-sensing antennae called rhinophores projecting from their head that help them smell the environment and other animals. Nudibranchs reproduce in an altogether curious way, because every individual is a “simultaneous hermaphrodite,� having both female and male reproductive organs at the same time. However, they cannot fertilize themselves but instead require a partner to come alongside so that they may pass packets of sperm to each other through tubes that extend from behind their heads. I told you it was curious. Once mating is successful, each individual can go on to lay millions of eggs — a distinct advantage in the numbers game. All nudibranchs are carnivores, preying on sponges, anemones, corals and some bivalves. As

exemplified by our barnacleeating dorid friend, many prefer a diet consisting of only a few species. Like all gastropods, this dorid slowly grinds and drills its way into the shell of its prey with a file-like mouth called a radula so it can suck up the soft flesh of the barnacle. If the nudibranch in question prefers sponges or anemones, the radula helps scrape the prey off of rocks. In a shallow, rocky pool I found a shaggy mouse nudibranch, Aeolidia papillosa, a larger species of sea slug that can be compared not unfavorably to a piece of shag carpeting. Along with the gills and rhinophores, it has fleshy cerata all over its back that move like hair in the water. These particular critters eat anemones, whose predator defense includes stinging cells in their appendages — which of course doesn’t protect against the Aeolidia. Amazingly, these stinging cells pass unharmed through the digestive systems of the nudibranch and are eventually incorporated onto the surface of the cerata, having been thus assimilated by the Aeolidia for its own defenses. Some species even eat and use the stinging cells from jellyfish tentacles. In fact, the color of the cerata can vary depending on the specific species that have

The Vashon Park District is trying to find a way to make our only public pool pencil out. It’s right that it does so. It’s quite possible that a well-run public pool would drain little from our shared coffers. At the same time, it’s important to remember a basic principle of government. There’s a reason we pay taxes: It’s so we can have shared, public amenities. Schools. Parks. Buses. Libraries. All of these things cost money. And all provide a great public service. The pool is costing more than park district officials thought it would when they took it over from King County two years ago. But keep in mind that the last two summers have been among our chilliest. And keep in mind that it’s a public asset, not a private venture. So sure, let’s encourage park district officials to run it well and efficiently. But let’s also remember that expending public funds on a public pool is a perfectly appropriate use of tax dollars. And let’s hope this year brings us a nice, hot summer.

Why a building in tax arrears is newsworthy A letter writer in this week’s issue suggests The Beachcomber should not have written a news story about the Sheffield Building’s property tax problem. She wonders if it means we’ll soon report on the financial struggles of a host of other Island property owners. Our coverage of the Sheffield Building does not, in fact, suggest a new chapter has arrived at The Beachcomber. But her questions do warrant answers. Here’s our thinking. Owners of commercial buildings throughout the region are no doubt struggling to pay their mortgages — in part, because of the nature of commercial loans. They’re often 10-year notes with balloon payments, instead of the 30-year mortgages most homeowners are familiar with. Refinancing is hard to come by these days — making these 10-year notes, as they come due, problematic. Indeed, we at The Beachcomber learned last week that an office building on Vashon is in that very situation after a letter from a commercial bank noting it was in default was posted on the building’s main entrance — for all to read. We didn’t report on it, however. The reason: Until there’s an actual default, the situation between this owner and his commercial lender is largely a private matter. It’s a sign of the times, for sure. But it’s not necessarily an issue of civic import. Tax payments, however, are a different matter. Property taxes fund our schools, our fire department, our park district — indeed, virtually every part of local, regional and state government in Washington, a state without an income tax. There’s another reason the Sheffield Building’s status is newsworthy. It’s owned by Vashon College, a nonprofit that has sought — and received — considerable press attention over the years. What’s more, the building was purchased by way of a complex transaction involving another nonprofit, the Vashon Rotary Foundation. All of these issues — the role that property taxes play in funding government services, the role of this particular building in our civic life — combined to make this a news story in our opinion. Some will disagree, of course. And that, too, is how it should be.

Recognizing addicts on the street hurts Yesterday, I was walking up in town and a 30-something guy, very thin, wearing an old army jacket and threadbare pants, crossed in front of me. I noticed him because he was very out of

it, stumbling, talking loudly to himself, cursing, muttering about Jesus, the state of the world. He looked familiar so I took a better look. Of course, being Vashon, I recognized him. I’d seen him a couple of times last year, but he didn’t look this bad. When our kids were small (they are now teens), he taught them at an afterschool program: Back then, he was inspiring, engaging, a wonderful

been assimilated. They truly are what they eat. The nudibranchs have other chemical mechanisms of protection as well, and can produce acidic mucus or toxins that taste awful or incapacitate their predators. Who eats sea slugs? That’s a good question, and for the most part we don’t know. There is evidence that crab, fish, and a few marine worms will sometimes attack and eat nudibranchs, and many sea slugs will actually cannibalize their own kind.

Occasionally I’ll see a police car parked at the end of our road, providing at least some sort of presence. We have a real, serious drug problem on the Island. I don’t know what to do about it, other than write this for our local paper. I imagine greater community activism or outrage could help.

Your article about the Sheffield Building, located prominently at the top of page three, was so detailed and revealing that I can now cross off my list searching out property tax information for at least one of the businesses on the Island. I am looking forward to your weekly reports on other Island businesses facing similar circumstances. I am also hopeful that you will soon publish companion information: a list of all foreclosed properties and short sales, providing similar details on owners and amounts.

A verdant time for those who love to forage For a wild foods forager, now is the beginning of the spring cornucopia. I call this season “verging on verdant.� The newly formed leaf buds are one of the most nutritious parts of any plant, owing to the plant’s single focus in growing these buds into leaves. An astonishing amount of vitamins and minerals in their natural form are contained within these chlorophyll nuggets. Cheaper than supplements and fresher than grocery store vegetables, these wild plants’ leaf buds — when ingested — are a perfect way to get your daily supply of vitamins and minerals. As far as edibility, the developing leaves of plants are often overlooked. The leaves of the young Indian plum, or oso berry, have a distinct cucumber taste while the thick buds of the Himalayan blackberry taste surprisingly like coconut. The leaf buds of the alder, maple, salmonberry and huckleberry are all edible and are best just nibbled from the branch. When nib-

Of our native plants here on Vashon, the elderberry leaf is one that could be harmful if ingested. This time of year is also best for eating the new spring growth of miner’s lettuce, cleavers, shot weed and chickweed. Eating these plants raw is the best way to assure the maximum benefit from the naturally occurring vitamins and minerals. The young leaves from more well-known wild greens, such as dandelion, dock and nettles, are in their prime now as the leaves are still maturing and at their high-

'BNJMZGVO This season lends itself to a fun activity for parents and their children. Seek out a large nettle patch — there is a wonderful one in the field above Point Robinson lighthouse — and find the dark purple nettles. Carefully collect them with leather gloves and wearing thick long sleeves, breaking the stem where it meets the horizontal root or at a lower leaf juncture. Put several of these plants in a clear jar and completely cover them with white vinegar. Within a day the color of the vinegar will begin to change to a rosy pink hue. The resulting vinegar will be ready in 10 days to use as you would any other vinegar, except this one is infused with the nutritional benefit of the nettle leaf.

Salmonberry’s pink flower petals, Oregon grape’s bright yellow flower clusters and dainty violet flowers are all highlighted in this season and can be eaten in the field or taken into the kitchen for brightening up salads or decorating cakes. Flowers have a long history of use in medicinal preparations, especially as essences preserved in water and alcohol.

We have been shown several Vashon houses by our Seattle real estate broker and I’m deeply disappointed to find that many of these houses are using what I think are deceptive photos. One place we liked online had a photo of a huge yard with a beautiful big pond and it turns out to be about four feet across and filled with debris. Another photo shows a beautiful swimming pool and it’s blocks away from the house! One more had a huge photo of Mt. Rainier and it clearly was taken with a telephoto lens. The mountain was nowhere near that close or large once we saw the house. Several waterfront places were not even that close to the water. They were hanging off of cliffs!

A:

It is against the rules of the Board of Realtors and the multiple listing service to use “puffing� (which means exaggeration), or Photoshopping pictures online. However, it’s also the listing agent’s job to entice buyers to look at their listings. I always tell my clients to take any real estate photos with a grain of salt. Besides, many homes actually look much better than the photos online. There’s no substitute for looking at a house and property in person. The photos online and the written descriptions are just a way for you to eliminate places that are totally unsuitable for you. I can’t tell you how often I have clients tell me that a house is so much nicer than what they expected from the Internet photos, so it can work both ways. One thing that could make your search easier is for your Seattle broker to partner with a local Vashon Realtor. Only Vashon brokers know the whole story behind most of our local listings. Your broker may be really experienced but he or she won’t know many of the major issues that are important in buying on Vashon Island. These include things like septic systems and their operation, issues with water and critical areas as well as slide hazard areas, and the history of neighborhoods and houses here.

VYFS hosts annual phone-a-thon for kids "35)"/4&/13*/54"-&4&5'035)*48&&,&/% Vashon Youth & Family Services is holding its annual phone-a-thon for Vashon Kids, its popular before- and after-school child care program, this evening and next Tuesday night. The phone-a-thon will raise money for scholarships for Island children whose families rely on the program, the only one of its kind on Vashon that serves working families with school-age children. Recent state budget cuts have reduced the availability of childcare subsidies, according to VYFS director Ken Maaz, while the need for such support continues to rise. In 2008, the program gave $23,207 in subsidies; last year, VYFS provided $36,291 in support, Maaz said. All families, however, pay some portion of the costs; no one, he said, gets a full scholarship. Services are designed to

A one-day sale of unframed etchings by the internationally known artist Art Hansen will take place from noon to 5 p.m. Saturday at the Blue Heron. Doors will open at 11 a.m. for VAA members. Patrons will be able to select from more than 180 black and white and color etchings of a variety of subjects, including flowers, landscapes, ponds, trees and people. Hansen’s etchings and lithographs may be seen in the Smithsonian Associates Art Collectors Program, Davidson Galleries and many private collections. Previous Island sales have proven extremely popular.

Vashon High School theater students will strut their stuff in “Legally Blonde, The Musical,� opening at 7:30 p.m. Friday at the high school. The Tony-nominated show — a spin-off of a successful book and then a 2001 film starring Reese Witherspoon — tells the story of Elle Woods, a sorority girl who enrolls in Harvard Law School in a bid to win back her ex-boyfriend, who has informed her that she is not blueblooded and brainy enough to be his bride. It’s not much of a spoiler to say that as the plot unfolds, Elle finds her footing as a top law student and also discovers plenty of ways to show off her natural beauty in a series of frothy song and dance numbers. Anna Hicks, Alec Spencer, Hailey Quakenbush, Sage Everett and Kaydi

Rosser all have starring roles in the show. A “Greek chorus� of sorority girls — played by Zoe Ferguson-Steele, Anna Rose Warren, Clover Paridon, Loriah Challman, Michelle Gilmour, Charlie O’Brien and Nesita Angraini — will keep the action of the musical rolling along. In a casting twist, the part of a law professor will be played by VHS drama teacher Stephen Floyd — an unplanned role assignment that happened after the student originally playing the professor transferred to another school. Floyd, along with VHS principal Susan Hanson, also directed the show. Maggie Laird, a celebrated Island chanteuse, is the show’s musical director. “It is a great ensemble piece with many smaller characters who have a

solo, or at least a solo verse within a longer song,� said Floyd. Students are also busy working behind the scenes. Student Ben Stream has designed lights and supervised the tech crew, and Kara Woodley is the stage manager. — Eiizabeth Shepherd

The show, considered PG, will be performed on Fridays, Saturdays and Sundays through April 1. Friday and Saturday evening shows are at 7:30 p.m. and Sunday matinees take place at 2 p.m. Tickets for most evening shows cost $15 for adults and $12 for students and seniors. Matinee tickets are $12. The performance this Saturday is a fundraiser for the junior class and all tickets are $15.

Hurst is thrilled to be back on Vashon, this time sharing a rental home with her 7-year-old son. “It was the best place I’ve lived,� she said. “For 20 years, I’ve had memories of the eagles, the otter out in front of my house, the pace, the life, the peacefulness.

New club takes off with monthly fun runs By TIM MORRISON For The Beachcomber

Folks who are looking for some sociable exercise, or those who want to know if the words “fun� and “run� could possibly belong together, should check out a new monthly event on the Island. Monthly fun runs sponsored by the Vashon Running Club are growing in popularity. What makes them fun? First, it’s the people. There is a happy camaraderie among a diverse, intergenerational group of runners, joggers and walkers. If you come you are likely to find familiar faces from various parts of your Island life — a person who lives down the street from you, someone you recognize from the store or the boat or a fellow parent from your kid’s class or team. There seems to be a synergy between socializing and exercise in this setting. As Kevin Kim-Murphy, one of the founders of the running club, points out: Running is more fun with friends. It works the other way too. People are friendlier when they share a common pursuit. It turns out that running promotes conviviality better than alcohol. Vashon Running Club events are entirely non-

Runners, many sporting ugly sweaters, pose after the February fun run. competitive. The course varies from month to month, and the stated distance — “5k-ish� — illustrates the informal tone. No one is timed (unless they bring their own watch), and no places or finishing order are recorded. The accomplished runners are more likely to hang back and run with family or friends than to push the pace. If anything, there is a greater motivation to finish further back so that there is a larger group to offer the hearty cheer that everyone gets when they finish. The event setting, Island Center Forest, enhances the fun. With the support of many Islanders and the good work of the folks at King County Parks, the

forest has come a long way from the days when visitors would get lost in the maze of trails. Now there are maps at each entry point, and most trail junctions are marked with signs. Directional signs posted the day of the race remove any chance of losing your way. Trail work has significantly improved passability, although in the winter there are still plenty of the puddles and mud patches that give trail running the obstacle course quality that many of us like. Passing through the rich, dark green landscape of salal, fir, ferns, huckleberry and cedar is beyond fun — it’s exhilarating. As if all this were not enough, the run organizers add unique and festive

touches to each event. At the December run, jingle bells were distributed. The forest filled with the tinkling of about 120 bells, one for each foot of the 60 participants. February’s theme was ugly sweaters, with a contest at the end for the best ugly sweater. Signs posted along the route showed

pictures of famous sweater wearers such as Mr. Rogers and Bill Cosby. At trail’s end there are always hot drinks and treats to share. If you are suspicious of people offering fun with no strings attached, be apprised that the Vashon Running Club — whose founding members, in addition to the Kevin and Claudine Kim-Murphy, include Bruce and Lisa Cyra and Kate Van Houdt — does have ulterior motives. But these are completely honorable, and include increasing the use and appreciation of Island Center Forest and encouraging fitness and community on the Island. So although you come for the fun, be warned that you may come away inspired to take up running or to make more visits to the Island’s natural treasures.

.JEEMFTDIPPMXSFTUMFST DPNQFUFJOTUBUFUPVSOFZ On Saturday, March 3, 10 members of the McMurray Middle School wrestling team competed at the Washington State Middle School Wrestling Championships in Puyallup. The competition was intense and exceptionally difficult. Eighth-grader Chase Wickman brawled his way to the top spot on the podium in his weight class by dominating in three matches and winning a nail-biter in overtime in the finals to take first. Luke Larson placed fifth in his bracket, and also taking home a medal was Logan Nelson, who placed third.

Madelyn Royal Junior, Co-Vice President of VHS Amnesty International/Interact Maddie helped educate our school about the importance of fair trade by writing a recent editorial and by sharing the results of her slavery footprint with the rest of our chapter. When we screened a ďŹ lm for interested students (over 50) about human traďŹƒcking, Madelyn also skillfully facilitated that evening’s discussion. She continues to make positive contributions to our school’s largest club and we appreciate her unstinting energy.

with a remarkable view — could have fetched a handsome price, he said. “They have a huge asset. They could have gone the other way,� Lipe noted. “For the taxpayers and the community, it’s a great situation, anytime we can pick up an asset like this.� Club members are also pleased with the impending transfer, in part because it makes so much sense. “There’s just a real pleasure in keeping the building for its intended use for the community,� said Julie Burman, who has lived at Tahlequah for 12 years. What’s more, she said, even without an official clubhouse, she believes residents will continue to gather for their annual picnic and their quarterly walks along the beach picking up the trash. “There’s still very much a sense of place here,� Burman said. The South End Community Club came into existence during a simpler and far different time on Vashon, members recalled. Several decades ago, many of the Island’s communities felt separate and apart, and people turned to each other for support and social events. Indeed, several of Vashon’s communities had a clubhouse that served as their focal point. Tahlequah residents wanted one, too, and for years — starting in the 1940s — they held bake

sales and rummage sales to try to garner the funds, according to the Slaughters, the only two original club members still living on Vashon. Al Slaughter’s father Holt was at the heart of the effort, Al recalled. He incorporated the club (without a clubhouse) in the 1940s and was the club’s first officer. They met in people’s homes until the club eventually bought the corner lot where the clubhouse now stands. It was when Tahlequah residents decided they needed to replace their tiny 1933 fire engine — described as “an amusing relic� in an article by The Tacoma News Tribune — that all the pieces came together to construct an actual structure. Al was a volunteer captain of Station 3, a small garage that’s still standing at the corner of Vashon Highway and Pohl Road and where the 1933 fire engine was housed. The small engine, however, wouldn’t always start; often, community members had to give it a push to get it going. A bigger, newer truck, meanwhile, wouldn’t fit into the small garage that housed their 1933 engine. “So I came up with the idea,� Al recalled. “Let’s have the fire department and south-enders join forces.� He went to the fire commissioners and sought their support. The commissioners endorsed the plan, and both parties — the fire department and the south-enders — threw in $7,000 to build the combined fire station/community

Volunteers have found it hard to maintain the community club in recent years; paint on its sign is peeling from exposure to weather. hall. Much sweat equity went into the construction project, the Slaughters said. Carol estimated that 25 Islanders helped in the construction. “It was a labor of love,� Al said. And for years, the 1,900-squarefoot structure played just the role they had hoped for — providing a gathering spot for the close-knit neighborhood. They held lectures and exercise classes at the clubhouse. Al’s 60th birthday party took place there, as did his daughter’s wedding reception. They put on musicals, New Year’s parties and game nights. “We didn’t have anything else,� Carol recalled as she and Al sat in their modest waterfront cabin

just west of the ferry dock. “We depended on each other.� Bob Hallowell and his wife Claire owned a weekend cabin at Tahlequah, where they lived during the summer months. They, too, had wonderful times, Bob said. He recalled one “pet parade,� when his daughter, then 3 or 4, carried a bucket with a jellyfish in it as her pet. When Hallowell retired from his job at The Seattle Times, he and his wife moved to a home at Corbin Beach, but they maintained their membership in the South End Community Club. “We so enjoyed the people,� he said. “They were such good friends.� Over the years, though, the

demographics of the Island began to change. There were fewer families, Hallowell said, and those who lived at Tahlequah seemed busier; kids, instead of hanging around, were carted off to sports practices or dance lessons. It was harder to find people who could volunteer the hours needed to maintain the structure. Bob Sargent, a member, said he’d beat back the blackberries to unbury the regulation-size horseshoe pit, only to have to do again the next summer. The club thought about different approaches to maintaining their ownership, said Sargent, the club’s secretary. Could they rent it out more frequently, for instance, and generate a bit more revenue? But they realized its location made that difficult, Sargent said. The vote to end their ownership was difficult for some of the long-time members. But they also all realize that this is the way of almost all clubhouses anymore, Carol Slaughter said. Indeed, she thinks theirs might be the only one left in the region. What’s more, those active in the community plan to continue to hold gatherings at the clubhouse, a use the fire department will continue to allow. Two years ago, Burman recalled, they held a movie night at the site, using the side of the building as their outdoor screen. “Families came from all over the Island,� she said. “That could be repeated anytime.�

Teens take to the stage

8FEOFTEBZ .BSDI t7BTIPO.BVSZ*TMBOE#FBDIDPNCFS

Dozens of Vashon High School students performed before a packed house at the Red Bicycle Bistro Friday night, a fundraiser for the class of 2012â&#x20AC;&#x2122;s graduation party in June. Emceed by Sage Everett, Sam Crosby and Alec Spencer, the event included comedy, poetry readings, a magic show and a number of musical acts â&#x20AC;&#x201D; from jazz to rock to acoustic guitar. The event brought in around $800 for the senior party, which, as in years past, will be a surprise, all-night affair organized by parents. All told, organizers have now raised more than $4,000 for the event, Amy Wolff, one of the parents involved in the effort, said â&#x20AC;&#x201D; enough to defray some of the costs and offer scholarships to those seniors who canâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t afford the party. Wolff said she was pleased by Friday nightâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s open mic, which brought teens and adults together for a raucous evening. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I thought it was fabulous,â&#x20AC;? she said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;The kids were fun and funny. ... And it was cool to see the Bike packed with kids and adults.â&#x20AC;? Several students played a role in helping to make the event happen, Wolff said, including Tanner Montague, a junior who lined up the acts. â&#x20AC;&#x153;He deserves a lot of credit,â&#x20AC;? she said. Some of the highlights included, clockwise from top left, Anna Rose Warren, reading a poem; singer Zoe Ferguson-Steele, backed up by Peyton Levin on drums and Dylan Basurto on trumpet; magician James Barrett (in tie) with Tanner Montague and LeeAnn Brown; and Corry Fox on the sax, playing with the 204th Street Jazz Ensemble. -FTMJF#SPXO4UBGG1IPUPT

(SPVQDPOEVDUTTVSWFZBCPVUUFFOTVCTUBODFVTF A Vashon group working to address youth substance abuse is conducting an Island-wide survey of adults in an effort to assess community attitudes about teen drinking and drug use. The survey by the Vashon Alliance to Reduce Substance Abuse (VARSA) went live last week, said consultant Ed Swan. Already, he said, the group has about 400 responses â&#x20AC;&#x201D; well on its way to its goal of 500 to 600 completed surveys. â&#x20AC;&#x153;It looks like weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ll have really strong numbers to base our analysis on,â&#x20AC;? he said. Swan said the group is trying to get the word out about the survey but, at the same time, not to talk too much about it publicly â&#x20AC;&#x201D; so as not to skew responses. The goal is to assess adult perceptions about teen drinking â&#x20AC;&#x201D; how tolerant they feel about the issue or how serious they think it is, as well as their attitudes about adult alcohol and marijuana use and their sense of community perceptions. The survey is completely anonymous, he said. As a result, he said, he and others involved in the effort hope people will answer the survey honestly and freely. â&#x20AC;&#x153;The data show that kids think that the community doesnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t care about their use and that they wonâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t get caught. And even if they do, â&#x20AC;Ś the consequences arenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t there,â&#x20AC;? he said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re hoping (this survey) will provide us with harder data. Weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re trying to affirmatively find out if that is in fact the case.â&#x20AC;? The survey will likely wrap up by the end of March. Next week, the group overseeing the effort hopes to take a preliminary look

at the responses and make sure â&#x20AC;&#x201D; based on the demographic information at the end of the questionnaire â&#x20AC;&#x201D; that the sample includes people at all income levels and at various stages in their lives, Swan said. Meanwhile, Swan said, he and others are using every email list they can think of to get the word out about the survey, hoping to cast their net wide. He recently went to the Vashon Maury Community Food Bank and handed the survey to people waiting in line. They also have a Spanish-language version of the survey. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re trying to catch all the different angles,â&#x20AC;? he said. The survey is the latest effort by VARSA, a multi-year effort funded by the federal government to try to reverse the Islandâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s high rate of teen alcohol and drug use. The groupâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s goal is to reduce teen substance use by addressing the community factors and attitudes that lead to teen drug and alcohol use. â&#x20AC;&#x201D; Leslie Brown VARSAâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s survey takes about 10 minutes to complete. Go to www.surveymonkey. com/s/VARSASURVEY to take the online version. Paper copies (including a Spanish version) are available at the Vashon Pharmacy, the Vashon Library, CafĂŠ Luna, Vashon Maury Community Food Bank, Vashon Island Coffee Roasterie and the Burton Coffee Stand.

Nancy Lou Rosser Minkler Sandoval

15 M A RCH 1958 â&#x20AC;&#x201D; 27 D ECEM BER 2011 Nancy Lou Rosser was raised on Vashon Island. The second redhead & youngest of 9 children, 8 who lived to adulthood, 6 girls, and two boys to Leon A. and Margaret Spalding Rosser. Life at the Rosser household, behind the old Vashon Grade School, was a jovial environment. Ever present children & activity pervaded the old house that seemed to inhale to accommodate more and exhaled when Margaret or Leon sent the troop of Rosser kids, neighbors or friends outside to play. Nancy the youngest of the gang, tumbled and toddled along in activities, developing her long lovely legs in keeping up. Nancy Lou graduated from Vashon Island High School with honors and with academic scholarships graduated from the University of Washington, again with honors. At this time she enrolled and completed a Masters Program at the University of Massachusetts, Amherst. Being an avid bicycle rider, (remember those gams & she held title of â&#x20AC;&#x153;Womenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Road Championâ&#x20AC;? at the Velodrome for 2 consecutive years), she decided to ride her bike back east. Leaving Vashon Island and riding to Rhode Island and then on to Amherst, accomplishing an average of approximately 125 miles per day, she made her way successfully across our beautiful country. Three people began this journey. Only one, Nancy Lou, stayed the course to completion and success. Nancy Lou later moved to Hawaii where she continued to be an â&#x20AC;&#x153;Islandâ&#x20AC;? girl. In the laid back casual way of the tropical breezes Nancy Lou shortened her name to simply â&#x20AC;&#x153;Louâ&#x20AC;?. Under her revised moniker she was known and lived the rest of her life. While in Hawaii she met and married Christian Robert Minkler, relocating to Phoenix, AZ, due to job assignments. While in Phoenix Lou Rosser Minkler gave birth to a wonderful son, Jacob Robert Rosser Minkler. Over and through experiences of life Lou and Chris parted. Lou and Jacob stayed in Phoenix for educational purposes for Jacob, and job tenure for Lou. Jacob is a tall (remember those legs), bright and talented young man, who excels where he places his mind to move forward. In 2003 Lou Rosser married Julio Herrara Sandoval and in December of that year gave birth to a beautiful baby girl, Juliana Leona Rosser Sandoval. Juliana, now 8 years is a lovely, tall ( here are those legs again), gifted girl. Both Jacob and Juliana are blessed with a smile and heart that matches their motherâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s. Reminders that her spirit lives on for us to experience and enjoy. Lou was an incredible mother, EVER patient coupled with unceasing love that could always be trusted as always present through â&#x20AC;&#x153;pick up your dirty socks & do your homeworkâ&#x20AC;?, to â&#x20AC;&#x153;mom, I need youâ&#x20AC;?. Through thick and thin. Lou was gifted with a voice that was wide ranging with musical clarity and pleasant to the ear. She shared her voice with many a church choir. One seldom was in the presence of Nancy Lou when she did not have an upbeat attitude, ready smile to be shortly aďŹ&#x192;rmed by jubilant and infectious laughter. She loved and served her spiritual faith through actions of true caring. It is with deep and genuine gratitude that we say thank you to Nancy Lou Rosser Minkler Sandoval for sharing herself so openly with each and everyone of us. A blessing bestowed to have experienced the many talents, hugging arms, successful, individual Lou was. Lou emulated the quote â&#x20AC;&#x153;God is Loveâ&#x20AC;? with an ease and grace that made it look a simple task to encompass all beings as equal and valuable entities. Throughout her entire life she kept the carrot in front of her carrot top head at the hope of returning to life as an â&#x20AC;&#x153;Island girlâ&#x20AC;? on Vashon, close to the salt water, island lifestyle and community she adored. She is proceeded and welcomed in death by her father, Leon, sisters Terry Sue and Mary Joann and brother Hubert Leavy â&#x20AC;&#x153;Skipâ&#x20AC;? and much other family .

FYI HONORS

3FY4USBUUPO On March 7, the King County Fire Commissioners Association presented an award to Vashon Island Fire & Rescue commissioner Rex Stratton. The annual award, called the â&#x20AC;&#x153;Jiggsâ&#x20AC;? and Jim Outstanding Community/ Fire Service Award, is presented to a commissioner in recognition of extraordinary commitment and service to life and fire safety. A plaque

will be on display in the lobby of Vashonâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s main fire station. Stratton serves not only on behalf of district employees and volunteers but county-wide and state-wide, as evidenced by his work on a bill that recently passed the Legislature and that allows volunteers all over the state to buy back early years of service to ensure they receive their full pension. He also serves on the county-wide EMS levy task force.

/FMTPOCMBTUT(01MBXNBLFSTGPS UIIPVSCVEHFUTUBMFNBUF Sen. Sharon Nelson (D-Maury Island) issued a statement Friday blaming Republicans in the Legislature for an 11th-hour budget stalemate that she said â&#x20AC;&#x153;will cost the people of the state of Washington both money and time.â&#x20AC;? The 60-day session came to an end last week without a signed budget, after Senate Republicans seized control of the budget process and passed a version far different from the one Democrats â&#x20AC;&#x201D; which control both the House and the Senate â&#x20AC;&#x201D; had teed up for passage. Senate Republicans were able to get their surprise spending plan passed after three conservative Democrats crossed party lines and voted for the GOP version. House Democrats, meanwhile, passed a Democratic version on Thursday. Gov. Chris Gregoire called lawmakers back to Olympia for a 30-day special session on Monday, a situation, Nelson said, that the Republicans in the Senate â&#x20AC;&#x153;knowinglyâ&#x20AC;? forced upon the Legislature. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We face a special session to address Republican demands to cut education and, thus, jeopardize our childrenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s future,â&#x20AC;? Nelson added in her statement. Several issues separate

the two budgets. The House version contains no cuts to K-12 or higher education and preserves a program called Disability Lifeline, which provides welfare and health care to unemployable adults. The Senate budget cuts $74 million from K-12 and higher education funding and eliminates Disability Lifeline. Nelson said the Republicans are refusing to compromise, despite concessions made by Democrats. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Not only have the Republicans refused to seek compromise since last Saturday, they have declined to seriously negotiate with Senate Democrats, the House or the governor to find middle ground on the budget,â&#x20AC;? she said. Senate Republican Leader Mike Hewitt of Walla Walla, however, said the Democrats are refusing to negotiate, forcing the need for a special session. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Since the Senate passed its budget almost a week ago, my colleagues and I have been reaching out to our Democratic colleagues in the House of Representatives about working together on a final budget solution,â&#x20AC;? he said in a statement issued Friday. â&#x20AC;&#x201D; Leslie Brown

This 7 year old lab mix is sweet, playful and needs lots of exercise. She has diabetes and was blind when she came to us, but our wonderful eye specialist, Dr. Sullivan, replaced her opaque lenses with new synthetic ones and they will never be affected by diabetes again.
