Experts urge Vashon to get ready for earthquake, tsunami By SUSAN RIEMER Staff Writer

A tsunami with waves up to 8 feet high could inundate Quartermaster Harbor just 18 minutes after an earthquake on the Seattle Fault, potentially immersing homes, beaches, people and animals at 15 feet of elevation and below. This message — that Vashon is vulnerable to a fast-moving tsunami following an earthquake — is one of the disaster-related issues two state experts will discuss at the annual meeting of VashonBePrepared next week. In recent years, scientists have learned a great deal more about the risk to the Puget Sound region from both earthquakes and tsunamis. At the presentation, John Schelling, the earthquake program manager for the Washington State Emergency Management Division, and Tim Walsh, the chief

hazard geologist at the Washington Geological Survey, will discuss the latest findings and provide information to Islanders about how they can best be prepared. “One of the things we want people to take away … is the fact that we want them to be the survivor story,” Schelling said recently. Earthquakes are a fact of life in the Puget Sound region, and preparedness is important, he stressed. “What you do today will determine how fast you and your family recover afterward,” he said. Earthquakes and the resulting tsunamis in Samoa in 2009, Chile in 2010 and Japan in 2011 have contributed to new understandings about both events, Schelling said. In his presentation, he will focus on how people can best be prepared while Walsh will discuss the SEE EARTHQUQAKE, 15

County council names Islander to top spot at ferry district On Saturday Vashon town buzzed with activity as the opening day of the Vashon Farmers Market coincided with the annual Spring Fling See more photos from Spring Fling and the under sunny skies and temperatures reaching into the 60s. opening day of the More than 400 Islanders and visitors made their way to the farmers farmers market. market at the Village Green, where about 30 booths offered up early Page 12 spring produce, plant starts and Island-made crafts and food. The market had record opening-day sales, bringing in $8,050, compared to $5,800 during last year’s opening day and $3,342 the year before. Market manager Rebecca Whittman credited the strong sales to the warm weather, Easter weekend visitors and the wide promotion of the opening day market. “It was a convergence of a lot of really positive things that brought a large crowd,” she said. Market organizers also took time on Saturday to honor Paul Motoyoshi, a beloved vendor who served miso soup and other Asian fare at the market for years and died earlier this year. They also gave out cups of green tea in his honor. Down the street at Ober Park, Vashon’s younger population celebrated at the Spring Fling, an annual event put on by the Vashon Island Merchants and the Vashon Island Chamber of Commerce. More than 300 kids, many donned in Easter outfits, crowded into the park, where they met the Easter Bunny, played games, dyed eggs and participated in quick and lively egg hunts. Event coordinator Jackie Merrill said that this year’s Spring Fling was so popular that she’s already planning to order more plastic eggs next year.

By LESLIE BROWN Staff Writer

The King County Ferry District has hired its first full-time administrator to oversee the small transportation agency, which operates the Vashon and West Seattle water taxis. Christine Nelson, 51, took on the $77,000-a-year post two weeks ago, after she was selected by the ferry district’s board of directors, the King County Council. Councilmember Joe McDermott, who chairs the ferry district, said Nelson was selected because of her extensive background in municipal government and her work with elected officials. He and the two other councilmembers who interviewed her were also impressed by her degree of knowledge about the ferry district and potential legislation that could affect its structure. “She clearly does her homework,” he said. Nelson moved to Vashon in November in part to be close to her

aging mother, Helen Nelson, who lives on the Island. She also has two sisters on Vashon, both of whom commute to their jobs in Seattle on the passenger-only boat. As a result, she said, she has a lot of appreciation for the role the ferry — popular among commuters — plays on Vashon Island. “It’s clear from the Vashon ridership that if people are aware of it and it meets their needs, it’ll be used,” she said. Nelson has spent about 20 years in local government in Washington, Oregon and, more recently, Alaska. Her last position was planning director for the Matanuska Susitna Borough in Alaska, a post she left to move to Vashon. “I’ve done a little bit of everything in the land-use arena,” she said. Already, she said, she’s diving into the ferry district’s biggest issues, including whether the foot ferry will be able to continue to dock at Colman SEE NELSON, 19

Teachers get training to help boost school district’s math program Consultants from UW will also help district adopt new curriculum By NATALIE JOHNSON Staff Writer

The Vashon School District is getting help from regional math education experts to strengthen the district’s math program and support teachers as their classes adopt new federal math standards. Last Thursday, faculty from the University of Washington’s Mathematics Education Project — which consults with about a dozen school districts a year — met with Vashon’s secondary math teachers for a full day of training on teaching strategies. It was the first of many trainings that will occur over the next three years for teachers at all grade levels, said Superintendent Michael Soltman. “They’re going to have a great opportunity to work with a master teacher who can help them develop that next level of expertise,� Soltman said. Virginia Stimpson, PhD, a nationally known teaching associate at the UW College of Education, and another UW faculty member will also guide school officials in aligning the district’s math program with new federal standards adopted by the state last year and help them select new textbooks. Math at the district been an issue of concern over the last couple years among parents, some of whom have brought the topic up at public meetings. Others have met privately with Soltman and Vashon High School principal Susan Hanson to discuss their children’s troubles in math and their concern about the district’s program. Soltman acknowledged the concerns, noting that some parents have hired private tutors to help their children. He said he hopes the consultants will help address some of the issues. “I think the greatest majority of our students are learning math well and performing really well on assessments.

Murder on Vashon? Not here, authorities say

By LESLIE BROWN Staff Writer

A persistent rumor that one or two execution-style murders have occurred on Vashon in the last couple of months is not true, according to the King County Sheriff’s Office. Capt. Patrick Butschli, who oversees the sheriff’s Southwest Precinct, which includes Vashon, said he knows of no suspicious deaths or suspected homicides on Vashon. After a query from a reporter, he also talked to the sergeant who oversees the department’s major crimes division and said he, too, knows of no suspicious deaths on the Island. According to one rumor, a body turned up in the Dumpster outside of La Playa, a restaurant next to the north-end ferry dock. “I would absolutely know about that, if it had happened,� Butschli said. “We’d have to get an ME (medical examiner) over there. Everybody would know

about it.� Sgt. Cindi West, a spokeswoman for the sheriff ’s office, said she, too, has heard nothing about murders on Vashon. “That would be criminal to try to hide something like that,� she said. “If something bad were to happen, we wouldn’t try to hide it. We don’t work that way.� Concern that one or more murders have occurred on Vashon and that authorities suppressed information about the deaths has been circulating the Island for months. Those concerns seemed to reach a new level in recent weeks, when Ken Maaz, the director of Vashon Youth & Family Services, heard about the allegations from a highly regarded Islander and decided he needed to have his staff look into the reports. “I don’t know if it’s true or not,� he said when reached Friday. “But I don’t want to completely discount it.�

A reporter called him later on Friday to tell him authorities said there was nothing to the rumors. Maaz expressed relief, adding that his instinct was to believe the sheriff’s office. “I can’t imagine they’d outright lie,� he said. “I’d be willing to take them at their word.� Islanders who work at the waterfront building that houses La Playa, meanwhile, said they found the suggestion of a body in the Dumpster ludicrous. Dale Cunningham, who works at Law Seminars International, above La Playa, pointed to the Dumpster — situated next to the driveway in front of the building — and laughed at the suggestion that a body could have ended up there without lots of people knowing about it. “It’s just ridiculous. It’s not true,� she said. Some of the concern about the sheriff ’s office and allegations it was not investigating suspicious deaths on Vashon started

BLUE SCHOLARS

last fall, when a much-loved man — a volunteer at the Vashon Maury Community Food Bank — was found dead in his yard. According to West, authorities believe his death was a suicide and are not actively investigating it. (The Beachcomber does not normally report the names of people who commit suicide.) West said the Medical Examiner’s Office has not released a final report on the man’s death because it’s still awaiting a final ballistics report. Such a report would verify, among other things, that the bullet in the body was from the gun found next to him, she said. “According to them (the medical examiner), it’s a suicide. But they’ve not issued the final report because they want every ‘i’ dotted and every ‘t’ crossed,� she said. Both West and Butschli said Islanders who have information about any suspicious deaths on Vashon are urged to call 911 and make a report. Sometimes, when people go missing, authorities are not notified, they said. “If anybody knows something, call our detectives. If they know where the bodies are, let us know,� West said.

Aging ferries sail a little slower, but mostly keep their schedule Vashon’s two oldest ferries are now sailing a little slower due to mechanical problems, but so far they’re mostly staying on schedule, Washington State Ferries officials say. The Klahowya and Tilikum, which serve the north-end triangle route and were built in the 1950s, are both experiencing drivemotor problems that require them to sail at slightly slower speeds. The Klahowya was also out of service for a time for repairs, but is now back on the route. David Moseley, head of WSF, said in a press release that the ferries are operating about two knots slower than the usual speed of 14 knots, or at about 14 mph compared to the usual 16 mph. “These two ferries, plus the Evergreen State, are fragile because they are the oldest in the fleet,� Moseley said. He said that during the first weekend in April, only four ferry departures on the triangle route were more than 10 minutes behind schedule — a regular ontime performance for the boats.

Marta Coursey, a spokesperson for WSF, said that the ferries on the triangle route did get behind schedule for a period of time last weekend because they couldn’t keep up with increased Easter weekend traffic. On Monday they were sailing on schedule again. “During our peak travel times we’re able to keep the schedule, during heavy traffic and major commute time,� Coursey said. “Where we see record travel on all of our routes, that’s when we’re not able to keep up.� The three ferries are slated for replacement; the first new 144-car ferry is currently being built and will be operational in 2014. In the meantime, WSF is waiting to find what repairs to the boats would cost before deciding how to proceed. “We will continue to monitor the situation closely and be as creative as we can in terms of scheduling,� Moseley said. “But there is simply no way of getting around the fact that these ferries are very old and on borrowed time.� — Natalie Johnson

Roadside stakes: Some think they mar the view

Eighty-four chest-high stakes were recently installed along the Tramp Harbor stretch of Dockton Road, raising concern among Islanders who see the iron posts as a visual blight marring one of Vashon’s most spectacular roadside views. The posts, placed every 50 feet on the water side of the road, are there to give workers precise locations along the road’s aging bulkhead, portions of which are beginning to fail, said Jim Didricksen, a Vashon-based supervisor with the King County Roads Division. “Everyplace along that bulkhead is a specific location when you apply for an environmental permit,� he said. “There’s been some mixup before.� Didricksen, however, has heard from Islanders who are troubled by the posts’ sudden appearance. Rochelle Ogershok, a spokeswoman for the county roads division, said she, too, has heard that some residents have voiced complaints. “We are aware that there has been some concern about the height of the markers. So we’re going to

Markers now line Dockton Road at Tramp Harbor, and have created a flury of complaints. look into shortening their length,� she said. Nadine Edelstein, who lives at Portage and routinely drives Dockton Road, said she is among those who find the posts unsightly. When the posts first appeared, she wondered if they were part of an art installation or a creative way to indicate progress in the public schools’ fundraising campaign. Told of their purpose, she expressed surprise that

so many posts are needed to mark locations along the short stretch of road. “Could they be shorter? Could they be at ground level? Could they use a tape measure?� she asked. “It seems excessive.� That stretch of road, she said, is spectacular. The markers, she added, are “a complete visual blight.� Didricksen said the engineers intentionally used brown stakes “hoping they

would blend in more.� “They didn’t realize it would stir up an interest in a negative way with the community,� he added. But, like Ogershok, he believes the county’s road engineers may rethink the approach. “We don’t want to start a war. We’ll try to do something that can work out,� he said. — Leslie Brown

Members of the Ferry Riders Opinion Group (FROG), open to anyone who cares to join, will have an opportunity to share their views about Washington State Ferries in midApril. The Washington State Transportation Commission is launching its biennial ferry rider survey and encourages the public to participate. The survey is conducted online and will be emailed to all members of the FROG. To join the FROG panel, visit the opinion group’s website at www. ferryridersopiniongroup.com/. The FROG survey panel was created in 2009 as a way to actively engage ferry riders and those interested in ferries on an ongoing basis. There are currently more than 6,000 FROG participants, according to the state transportation commission. Members of the opinion group have the opportunity to voice their opinions and concerns on a variety of ferry topics via several online surveys throughout the year. Results of all surveys are reported to the state Legislature and state decision makers, including Washington State Ferries. Participation in the research is voluntary, and individual survey responses are kept confidential and are only used for statistical purposes, the state transportation commission says. The commission encourages all ferry riders, as well as others interested in ferries, to join the opinion group and play an active role in WSF’s future. For more information on the opinion group and past surveys, visit the state transportation commission’s FROG survey website at http://wstc.wa.gov/FROGSurvey.

Family recovery: With help, there’s a way

Continued feedback is needed for ferry service

When parents discover their beloved child is using drugs, drinking or has an eating disorder, they might feel fear, anger, guilt, panic, sadness, confusion and disbelief. How can they still function as usual with all of these overwhelming feelings? Some become paralyzed; they start questioning every parenting choice and look for someone to blame — because this was definitely not part of the plan. What happened and how did this family get here? Staying focused on the past doesn’t help; it only fuels anxiety, guilt and instability. But after decades of working with families, I have seen a group of simple skills make a big difference in the stress levels of those pulled into an addiction and recovery process. Affected others may be relieved to finally have a diagnosis or explanation and then get caught up in an adrenaline-fueled search for the easiest, cheapest or guaranteed method of treatment. But a process filled with denial, shame, lies and insurance companies often doesn’t progress in a straight forward or a simple way. Families can soon become isolated, believing no one could really understand, or they don’t want to be a burden because their hope is that this will all be taken care of now that there’s a plan. If they are uneasy with feeling less in control, they may stay busy switching therapists, searching out new treatment programs, or even moving away with hope of a geographical cure. Often people will not value basic, boring skills because they are living in such complicated, high-drama and high-risk situations. So when recovery specialists offer seemingly simple tools, it’s hard to imagine that these approaches could help address

Islanders should consider joining the Ferry Riders’ Opinion Group (FROG) to help shape the future of the state ferry system. During the height of the recent legislative session, The Beachcomber, along with the Island’s ferry advocates, urged Vashon residents to press state lawmakers to fully fund the ferry system. Many did so by signing petitions and writing letters, and some donated their time to Vashon’s Ferry Advisory Committee and lobbied in Olympia. Thanks in part to those efforts, and the efforts of other ferry-dependent communities across the region, lawmakers avoided deep cuts to ferry runs and funded the ferry system through June of next year. However, the victory doesn’t mean we should rest on our laurels. We should continue to voice our opinions about the ferries, knowing that when we speak out loudly enough, those in power listen. There’s a way Islanders can influence important decisions made about the ferries without taking time to compose a letter or travel to Olympia. The Washington State Transportation Commission recently launched its biennial ferry rider survey, an online questionnaire that asks ferry riders how they use the ferries and collects feedback on topics such as route schedules, fare prices and fare collection. (see story, page 5) Islanders need only join FROG onlineto be emailed the survey later this month. Information collected in the survey will be used by a range of officials and elected leaders who make decisions about the ferry system. Aside from the continued search for permanent ferry funding, much is still happening that could affect our experience on the boat. This issue of The Beachcomber includes an article on Vashon’s two oldest ferries, which are having mechanical problems that will prevent them from keeping up during the very busiest times of the year. Since these aging ferries are slated to be replaced, WSF is unsure if it will repair them. Three new 144-car ferries are needed to replace the aging Evergreen State fleet; two of them will go to Vashon. However, funding has only been secured for two of the boats, and Islanders should urge the state to prioritize funding the final boat’s construction. What’s more, the state is also considering significant changes to how fares are calculated and collected. Officials are looking at a plan that would involve charging vehicles by the foot while passengers and walk-ons ride free. Whether that sounds to you like a spot-on idea or a big mistake, the state can only make the best decision with feedback from those on the water every day. We encourage those Islanders who are already a part of FROG, as well as those who would be new to the group, to take a few minutes this month to tell the state about their experiences with the ferries and their preferences for the future. It’s an easy way to influence the future of the ferry system we rely on so heavily.

severe budget cuts and no additional revenues, the state’s option was to eliminate the Tahlequah-Point Defiance and the Southworth-Vashon-Fauntleroy triangle routes, along with a 265 car-per-day loss in Vashon-Fauntleroy service. It is not hyperbole to suggest that those losses of service would affect everyone on Vashon. The nature and viability of the Islands would negatively change.

your loved one toward help, be the first one out the door yourself. Stellar self care: Eat “mood-supportive� food, exercise, role model good sleep and hygiene, give yourself permission to still have fun and schedule time to relax. Feed your spirit if you hope to be the lighthouse during this storm. Rarely can you guilt trip anyone into recovery by suffering more yourself. Daily rituals: Develop a consistent ritual every day to learn more about addiction, enabling, denial, resentment and forgiveness. These concepts are easy to absorb through “recovery literature,� like a daily reader. Some classics include “The Language of Letting Go,� by Melody Beattie, “Courage to Change: One Day at a Time in Alanon II,� and “The Promise of a New Day: A Book of Daily Meditations.� Letting go: Ultimately, addiction recovery is an individual’s own life path, and there is only so much anyone can do to save even one’s own child. Most experienced parents will say that it was not anything specific they did that saved their child. It was accepting they were powerless over their child’s addiction that allowed them to manage healthy boundaries, and that is what made a difference. Trusting the process or “keeping the faith� helps anxious parents stay present — which is where they are needed. It also reduces the pressure that can build into manic searches for “evidence� or into mistakenly believing that their power and influence lies in finding the best expert, the perfect program or the right medication that will be the magic key for saving their treasured child.

their dire situation. And they would be right about that — unless they actually try them, which means first choosing to feel differently and then practicing consistently (at least for a month or more) aiming for some stress relief and peace of mind, no matter what. Here are a few skills that have helped other families survive and even overcome the pain of addiction. Acceptance: Accept that the entire family is in the midst of this disease, and there is no other way out than through it. Practicing radical acceptance means seeing life for what it is, and then embracing a process that may be filled with fear, hope, skepticism, unconditional love, humiliation, horror, humor and, eventually, forgiveness. Even after some progress, there will be times when a parent is flooded with memories from the past, creating an overreaction to the present. Being prepared makes it easier to accept these reactions as just feelings, not facts. Remaining steady allows responses rather than reactions. Create a support network: Building a support system of even just a few people (besides family) who understand the addiction process is crucial. Seek a specialist who has had experience working with addictions. Find other parents in Al-Anon, faith-centered, codependency or even online recovery groups. Every time you push

Thus, it is very much worthwhile to acknowledge and applaud the ceaseless, multi-year efforts of Greg Beardsley and Kari Ulatoski, a few other Islanders and some of our elected representatives in achieving the final budget result. As successful as Greg and Kari have been as Vashon’s ferry advocates, they can’t be expected to continue as the Islands’ “army of two� in Olympia. Yes, everyone has their day-to-day demands — sometimes overwhelming. But what if you woke up one morning to a drastically reduced level of ferry service? What would you do? It can happen and almost did! Business owners, real estate agents, school officials, contractors, people with off-island jobs, fire/rescue personnel — no disrespect, but wake up. This is a bread and butter concern for you. Greg and Todd noted the same status will exist six to eight months from now as it did two to three months ago. The state requires a long-term, sustainable, predictable revenue stream far beyond fare box collections. This is an impossible lift for two people (plus a few helpers) to accomplish, even with the help of sympathetic lawmakers. So please, when asked to sign a petition, complete a survey, write a letter to the legislature, advocate with friends and family outside of King County, do so. Everyone makes a difference. — Jim Otis

way to spend our money than for our daughter’s education? We didn’t think there was, so in the spring of 2010 we set up a monthly donation. Last spring, I again arranged for a oncea-month contribution to the schools. I’ve already been on the Paypal site to set up this year’s pledge. All this has demanded of me is some time at the computer and a few keystrokes. What have I received? A daughter who asks me to return the pile of library books she zipped through, to look at the eight zillion mushrooms she photographed on the Sol Duc Falls trail during the science unit on fungi, to admire the just-for-fun travel journal she made of our trip to the Lewis & Clark historical sites, to find our binoculars for the fourth-grade KVI birding trip, to buy Cinderella pumpkins from the multi-age garden, to listen to songs she is learning in Andy James’ music class, to display the fun art she created at Chautauqua, and (OK, I’m actually doing the asking here!) to practice math facts in the car. At our house, making a donation to the foundation happens just once a month, but I see the worthwhile results every day. — Kristen Elliott Gunn

our decision to move to Vashon. Our kids have and continue to receive an education that far surpasses anything we experienced in our previous district. Our kids have had the opportunity to attend Camp Waskowitz, the Forest Stewards program and soon McMurray’s Exploratory Week. They have read about the Holocaust, slavery, deciduous trees and even learned how to write in cursive, something I thought was a lost art. We have watched our children grow into smart, inquisitive, funny and thoughtful young people, due in part, I believe, to the well-rounded education they have received on Vashon. They are being taught by teachers who truly care about their ideas and questions and who encourage them to be thinkers, doers and active members of their community. I cannot say enough good things about the quality of education in the Vashon School District. I would encourage everyone to give as much as they are able to the Vashon Island Schools Foundation to ensure the district’s ability to retain its fabulous teachers and programs. It is true that our children are our future, and I am proud to have the children of Vashon be the leaders of tomorrow.

Politics

Bush got us into this mess

Some of it wasn’t very funny

While I agree with Anne Peck’s inference that Sen. Sharon Nelson wrongly blames the minority Republican party for the legislature’s budget failure, Ms. Peck is guilty of the same line of convenient but faulty analysis when she switches to the federal budget. She attempts to blame the Obama administration for being more fiscally irresponsible

Grateful to the school district I want to express my thanks to the Vashon Island Schools Foundation and its continued efforts to raise money for the Vashon School District. As the parent of four kids (one soon to be at the high school, one at McMurray Middle School and two at Chautauqua), I can’t say enough good things about the school district. We moved to Vashon three years ago because of the outstanding reputation of Vashon’s public schools. We have never regretted our decision and in fact, not a week goes by that I am not thankful for

As long as a remark like this can be said out loud, and get some audience laughs, women are not free and are not safe. I was outraged to the point of nausea when this happened. I felt like boycotting COGR. It is this attitude toward women that makes it possible for women to be hurt, abused, raped and disrespected in our culture. If COGR is a community project, then this remark and this attitude must be dealt with immediately and thoroughly. First step, apologize and articulate that you understand sexism and misogyny and care about ending those things. Second step, donate your entire proceeds for the next show to Vashon’s DOVE project, working to support victims of domestic violence. Is it 2012? Or is it still 1960?

Last spring you told us that our house was worth about $415,000 to $420,000. You gave us a list of things to do to get ready to go on the market this spring and now the listing agent we’ve chosen to work with is saying that number is too high. She wants us to list it at $375,000. We’re really upset that you gave us a higher figure and with that number in mind we spent money fixing things up. We’re going to barely get what we owe on it if we sell at her lower price.

There are several reasons why the listing broker would come up with a lower figure. First, our market did take a drop of about 9% last year, particularly in the lower price ranges. In addition, and this is far more important, the appraisers have to work from those comparable sales that have happened in the preceding six months. If there have been few sales that are comparable, or if a couple of properties sold for a great deal less, it will bring down the appraisal on your property. The reason the appraisal is so critical is that most buyers will be getting a mortgage. The lender will do an appraisal and that’s what they will loan. Even if a buyer falls in love with your place and is willing to pay more, the lenders will not finance more. Your listing broker was probably looking at the current comparable sales that an appraiser will find. That helped her come up with a price that was reasonable given our current market. As for the work that you did on the place, you would be looking at an even lower asking price if those repairs had not been made. Buyers are picky. They don’t want to buy a place and then be looking at thousands of dollars of repair work. Cosmetic changes, like paint color or floor coverings are expected by most buyers, but fixing leaking plumbing, dealing with a flooding basement or putting on a new roof are not.

than its predecessor George Bush, but the facts are not that simple. Presidents are often blamed for running up the deficit, but the truth is Congress sets the budget, hopefully before the fiscal year ends Oct. 1, so incoming presidents have little influence on spending for about a year. When George Bush took office, the ongoing national debt was in the range of $5.5 to $6 trillion; when he left office it had nearly doubled to approximately $11 trillion. Since Barack Obama has been in office, it has increased to some $16 trillion, but the real question is just whose policies have contributed to these big increases. There’s little argument that the significant increase of over a trillion dollars a year since 2001 is threatening our economic system. But bear in mind that when comparing Bush to Obama, 37 percent of these annual increases can be attributed to the business cycle recession (tax revenues have declined dramatically); another 33 percent to policies enacted under George Bush (tax cuts, Medicare Part D, wars in Iraq and Afghanistan); 20 percent to these same policies enacted under Bush but continued under Obama; and approximately 10 percent for new policies enacted during Obama’s first three years.

We can’t seem to make any headway in solving the budgetary crises in either Olympia or Washington, DC due to the willingness of both sides to distort the numbers to gain political advantage. At the federal level, both parties seem to intentionally and irresponsibly cut taxes so that come election time the resulting ballooning deficits can be blamed on the other party. — Charlie Peterson

Solar Power

Study market before investing I recently read about the new solar project being purchased by a group of investors (“Vashon solar lines up investors for array at school,� March 21). It grabbed my attention as I realized my company is installing a similar size array at Summit Station in Greenland at the peak of the Greenland icecap, over 10,000 feet above sea level. We have to do the installation in subzero temperatures in a low-oxygen environment. Ironically, the price for this system is half of that quoted in the Beachcomber article. I’ve worked in the renewable energy business since 1993 and have spent many years

pricing solar equipment. Here’s my advice to investors or people installing solar arrays on their homes. Solar panels are measured and sold by the watts of power delivered when in full sunlight at a standard intensity. A standard method of price comparison when shopping for panels is to look at dollars per watt and the estimated years of service. Using these yardsticks allows a quick measure of the costs when comparing systems. The average price for a grid-tie solar rooftop electric system in 2011 was $5 per watt for residential and $3 per watt for utility scale power. Why is it $10 and $11 here on Vashon? Just for fun I sized a 10.6KW gridtie solar electric system kit with a 25

year-panel warranty from a retail outlet, Affordable-solar.com. I would expect this system to deliver twice the amount of electricity that we consume on our farm. It cost $26,331 or $2.49 per watt. When I was installing residential systems, we charged 20 percent for installation fees, plus additional materials fees. This was standard. Solar electric panels are at the best prices ever, and I encourage people to consider investing. There is a 30 percent federal tax credit and a generous state electric production incentive. If done carefully, an investment in solar can outpreform most mutual funds with a 10 to 15 percent annual return. But as with all investments, it’s important to study the market! — Joe Yarkin

HOW A FAMILY-OWNED FERRY SERVICE IS

GOING THE DISTANCE FOR LOCAL RESIDENTS — AND THE SEATTLE ECONOMY.

For more than 25 years, the iconic red-and-blue Clipper fleet has been ferrying commuters and vacationers alike between Seattle, Victoria, B.C. and the spectacular San Juan Islands. To keep the fleet as modern and comfortable as possible for passengers, Clipper Vacations began working with Bank of America in 2007. We initially helped by restructuring loans that enabled engine upgrades, allowing the fleet to reach speeds of up to 30 knots. More recently, we provided financing to modernize the fleet’s interior cabins. It’s a relationship that’s not only helping to get Seattle residents where they need to go — it’s also helping to generate local economic growth: the family-owned fleet employs 150 people. Clipper is another example of how we’re working to help locally based businesses grow and hire in the Puget Sound — and across the country. In 2011, we provided $222 million in new credit to small businesses in Washington — an increase of 28% from 2010.

In the Community Cinema series, this month’s film will be “Hell and Back Again,� a 2012 Academy Award nominee for best documentary. The film explores how a soldier, Sgt. Nathan Harris, comes home — injured physically and psychologically — and builds life anew. The film follows Harris, a Marine wounded in an Afghanistan battle, while he is in Afghanistan and then returns to North Carolina to his young wife. He struggles through physical therapy and fights his pain. He’s left to fight his painkiller addiction and the terrifying normalcy of life at home. Due to scenes of actual battle violence, death imagery and mature themes, this film is recommended for a mature audience. American Hero Quilts and the American Legion Post #159 will co-host this event, which will include an after-film discussion. The quilt project, which provides handmade quilts to soldiers wounded in the line of duty, will bring quilts to the event for the audience to see. The film is free.

Drama Dock offers up a intriguing whodunit By ELIZABETH SHEPHERD Arts Editor

I

slanders who are interested in murder most foul (see article, page 5) would do well to indulge their sensationalist tastes by attending Drama Dockâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s upcoming show, â&#x20AC;&#x153;Sherlockâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Veiled Secret,â&#x20AC;? set to open this weekend at Vashon High School.

The show, penned by Seattle playwright K.C. Brown with an assist from her husband Arne Zazlov, a well-known actor and director, provides a fresh take on the famous detective. Here, Sherlock is an elderly gent, coming out of retirement to solve one last case and in the process, wrap up the emotional loose ends of his tumultuous life. â&#x20AC;&#x153;In this play, Sherlock is a fully fleshed human being,â&#x20AC;? said Drama Dock artistic director Elizabeth Ripley, who is directing the show. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We see him as weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve never seen him before, as a man who can love and make mistakes and regret them, and we learn all of this through the eyes of his daughter.â&#x20AC;? Thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s right â&#x20AC;&#x201D; Sherlock Holmes is a family man in this interpretation. In the play, the brilliant sleuth (played by Drama Dock veteran Chris Ott), summons a beautiful young London sculptress (played by India Castle) to his estate to ask for her help in a blackmail case. It is only after she arrives that she learns the shocking truth about her paternity. Ripley has assembled an accomplished cast of some of her favorite Island actors to tackle the juicy roles in the show. Marshall and Stephanie Murray, who most recently delighted audiences with their campy, over-the-top performances in â&#x20AC;&#x153;The Rocky Horror Show,â&#x20AC;? both have important roles in the show. Drama Dock stalwarts Sue DeNies, Peter Kreitner and Dianna Ammon also have parts in the play. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Thanks to Marshall Murray we have some pretty broad comedy in the show,â&#x20AC;? Ripley said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;He steals scene after scene.â&#x20AC;? Ripley said she has also loved working with Ott, someone she said was typecast in the role

.JDIFMF"OOF-PVJTF$PIFO1IPUP

Christopher Ott, Peter Kreitner, India Castle and Marshall Murray hold a seance to summon a spirit in â&#x20AC;&#x153;Sherlockâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Veiled Secret,â&#x20AC;? which opens on Friday. of Sherlock Holmes. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Heâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s quick, hot-tempered and then totally laid back,â&#x20AC;? she said, with a laugh. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Chris Ott.â&#x20AC;? Ott, for his part, agrees with Ripley. â&#x20AC;&#x153;When I first starting reading the part, I realized either heâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s channeling me or Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m channeling him,â&#x20AC;? Ott said in an on-camera interview for a behind-the-scenes video being made about the production. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We are so similar in nature and how we approach life.â&#x20AC;? A few of Ripleyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s regular collaborators are working behind the scenes, making the play a family affair. Lillian Ripley, who is Elizabethâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s daughter, designed the set made up of modular pieces that take the show from the summer after the end of World War I back in time to 1892. Nathan Ott, son of Chris, has designed the

lights. The play also features spooky sounds by Island musician and composer Christopher Overstreet. All in all, Ripley said, itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a show that should result in a fully rounded night of suspenseful fun for Island theater lovers. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a mystery, so there are serious bits, and then there are times you say â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s so sad,â&#x20AC;&#x2122;â&#x20AC;? Ripley said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;And then there are times I just start laughing.â&#x20AC;? â&#x20AC;&#x153;Sherlockâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Veiled Secretâ&#x20AC;? opens at Vashon High Schoolâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s theater at 7:30 p.m. Friday and will continue with 7:30 p.m. performances on April 14, 19, 20 and 21. Sunday matinees will take place at 2 p.m. on Sunday and April 22. Tickets, $7.50 to $12.50, are on sale at Vashon Bookshop and at the door.

That gig was followed by McDougallâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s own five-week European tour. Island musician Tab Tabscott will open the show.

latest research and what the most recent findings might mean for Vashon. Walsh also plans to share animation that illustrates just how quickly a tsunami could inundate the low-lying areas of the Port of Tacoma and Fife. Six to 15 feet of water would be expected there within minutes of a quake; the scientific modeling for that project included parts of Vashon, he said, and will help residents understand potential tsunami scenarios for Vashon more clearly. If one occurs here, residents need to be prepared not just for water, he said, but for the debris that comes with it, including â&#x20AC;&#x201D; potentially â&#x20AC;&#x201D; the contents of log yards near low-lying ports and houses that have been knocked off their foundations and carried away. Such debris could pres-

ent considerable difficulty, including creating an additional impediment to ferry travel to and from the mainland. If a whole house floated on to a ferry dock, he noted, it would need to be removed before travel could resume. To best withstand such a disaster, Schelling said that understanding potential scenarios and knowing the right action to take is vital. Standard earthquake advice used to be â&#x20AC;&#x153;drop, cover and hold,â&#x20AC;? he said, but now, for people living near a shore, the directive is to â&#x20AC;&#x153;drop, cover, hold and then go to higher ground as quickly as possible.â&#x20AC;? â&#x20AC;&#x153;The response by citizens has to be automatic,â&#x20AC;? Walsh said. Schelling stressed the importance of practice for such an event. When the people of Crescent City, Calif., had to evacuate following last yearâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s earthquake in Japan, many said it felt just like a drill, he

noted. Drills had been helpful in Japan as well, where, despite widespread tragedy, having practiced for a tsunami saved many peopleâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s lives.

On Vashon, as in many other communities in Washington, Schelling encourages organizations, neighbors and communities to take action, train themselves about tsunamis and take ownership of how they will respond if necessary. â&#x20AC;&#x153;It offers peace of mind,â&#x20AC;? he said. He also noted that Washington has three coasts: the outer coast, the

Page 15

coasts of the Strait of Juan de Fuca and the coasts of Puget Sound. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Each has unique hazards,â&#x20AC;? he said. Such an event is entirely possible, he noted: For this region, there is a 5 percent chance in a 50-year period that a tsunami will strike. In addition to discussing the more recent understandings of tsunamis, Schelling will discuss how to best be prepared to withstand the effects of a major earthquake, including low or no-cost steps people can take to secure their home and work spaces: anchoring bookshelves, strapping a hot water heater water to the wall and securing a flat screen TV, for example. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s an hour project,â&#x20AC;?

Schelling said about securing the TV. â&#x20AC;&#x153;It might seem trivializing. But if somebody is in that room, itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s going to save their lives.â&#x20AC;? Both men note they are aware that earthquake fatigue sometimes sets in and people can grow tired of hearing about the possibilities that might befall this area. Walsh countered by pointing to recent history: The last earthquakes in this region higher than a 6.5 were in 1949, 1965 and 2001. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Eye rolling is not a good idea,â&#x20AC;? he said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;If you grow up here, you can expect two to three large, damaging earthquakes in your lifetime.â&#x20AC;?

The presentation and general meeting of VashonBePrepared will be from 7 to 9 p.m. Wednesday, April 18, at Chautauqua Elementary School. Sen. Sharon Nelson and Fire Chief Hank Lipe will host the event. For more information, see www. vashonbeprepared.org.

Pirate baseball suffers two losses on the road

JV Pirates are QMBZJOHTUSPOH On Thursday Vashonâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s junior varisty soccer team took on Chief Sealth on the home field. The Pirates played skillfully, but in the end lost to the visiting Seahawks, 4-3. It was the second loss for the team. However, like Vashonâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s varsity team, they still boast a winning record with four wins this season. Pictured, Pirate Anil Krogness, white jersey, strips the ball from a Chief Sealth attacker during the first half of the game.

Vashon lacrosse takes down Garfield By CHARLEY ROSENBERRY For The Beachcomber

The Vashon Lacrosse Clubâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s boys high school team took its game to a higher level with a victory on the road over Seattleâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Garfield High School on Tuesday, April 2. The win established Vashon as a contender in Division II of the Washington High School Boys Lacrosse Association. From the opening face-off, Vashon demonstrated focus and intensity. However, the team did not immediately hit its stride. It took most of the first half for realigned midfield and defensive units to find their rhythm. Vashonâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s powerful offense came through to keep the game close at the

half with attack men Luke Hembree, Caz Mozeleski and John Smith leading the way to an 8-8 halftime tie. In the second half, Vashonâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s defense fortified to limit Garfield to two goals. Led by junior goalie Aaron Bomber, defenders Matt Amundsen, Ian McWhirter, Max Croonquist and Eli Sedgemore repeatedly thwarted and frustrated the Garfield offense. At the other end of the field, Vashonâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s offense continued to score, even on two occasions when Vashon was a â&#x20AC;&#x153;man-downâ&#x20AC;? serving a penalty. Garfieldâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s defense could not find an answer for Vashonâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s multidimensional scoring machine. After Garfield narrowed Vashonâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s lead to

10-9 toward the end of the third quarter, Vashon pulled away again to finish with a 14 -10 victory. The Vashon victory was a classic example of teamwork. Ten of Vashonâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s goals came off of assists from teammates. In addition, goalie Bomber took the lead in the league with the most saves. The team will take a break before finally playing its first home games. They will play Highline at 5 p.m. Wednesday, April 18, and theyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ll face Seattleâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Nathan Hale High School at 2:30 p.m. Saturday, April 21. â&#x20AC;&#x201D; Charley Rosenberry is the coach of the high school boys lacrosse team.

VASHON

The Pirate Baseball team took its game on the road last week and suffered two losses, falling 9-0 to the undefeated Charles Wright Tarriers, and then 12-2 to Port Townsend. On Wednesday, April 4, Vashon traveled to Charles Wright to play their third league game of the season against the undefeated Tarriers. Josh Myer started on the hill for the Pirates, pitching three innings and allowing two runs on four hits with no walks. He was relieved by Joe Wald in the fourth. Wald struggled with his control, and Charles Wright took full advantage, putting up back-to-back three-run innings. Erik Powelson came on in the sixth inning and recorded the final two outs. Leading the Pirate hitting attack were Myer, who was two for two, and Ben Reoux, who was two for three. Adding to the hit total were Ezra Lacina and Michael Bernheisel, who each had a single. Despite the six hits, Vashon was unable to push any runs across against the strong Tarrier pitching. The final line score: Charles Wright 9 runs, 8 hit, 2 errors, Vashon 0 runs, 6 hits, 3 errors. The Pirates played a nonleague road game on Friday against Port Townsend. Kelly Sullivan was the starting Pirate pitcher and threw three innings. He was followed by Reoux and

Bernheisel. The trio gave up 12 runs on 12 hits over five innings. The game ended in the bottom of the fifth due to the 10-run rule. The Pirate offense was led by Bernheisel, who was two for two on the day. Geoffrey Kraabel chipped in with a double, and Thomas Douglas added a single. The line score: Port Townsend 12 runs, 12 hits, 1 error, Vashon 2 runs, 4 hits, 3 errors. Coach Steve Hall said the final score was due in part to the fact that he was aiming to give all players on the team good playing time that day. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Without a JV team this year, non-league games are our only chance to give guys playing time that donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t see much during league games,â&#x20AC;? he said. Hall mentioned that Ryan Bernheisel did a good job behind the plate, Kelly Sullivan looked good pitching and Thomas Douglas hit the ball hard twice with a hit and another one taken away by a nice defensive play. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We saw some real good things out there,â&#x20AC;? he said. The loss dropped the Piratesâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; record to 0-5 for the season. The team will take this week off for Spring Break and hit the field again on Tuesday, April 17, at home against Cascade Christian. â&#x20AC;&#x201D; Rita Allman does web and team support for the Pirates.

Dock in Seattle, the carrying capacity of the often-overloaded Vashon-to-Seattle boat and plans to build some new boats in the next couple of years. She hopes to meet with people who use the districtâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s two water taxis in the next couple of months to answer questions and discuss her plans and vision. Meanwhile, she added, sheâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s also beginning to think about the larger role a ferry district can play in the region, where foot ferries could become an efficient way â&#x20AC;&#x153;to move people around.â&#x20AC;? Other cities, including Bremerton and Port Townsend, are interested in foot ferries, she said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Long term, my vision would be to see all of the communities (in the Puget Sound region) working together to build a bigger system of moving people â&#x20AC;&#x201D; more cheaply, quickly and easily â&#x20AC;&#x201D; than on the big boats,â&#x20AC;? she said. King County established its ferry district four years ago, after the state â&#x20AC;&#x201D; which had run the Vashonto-Seattle route â&#x20AC;&#x201D; announced it would no longer operate passenger-only boats. Since then, the ferry district has

â&#x153;Žâ&#x153;Žâ&#x153;Ž

Christine Nelson been overseen by a part-time executive director who left at the end of 2010, a part-time consultant and members of McDermottâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s staff. McDermott said the ferry district currently enjoys support from the King County Council, but under its current level of funding, its years are numbered. He said he plans to continue to work with his colleagues on the council to improve the districtâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s revenue stream. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I think itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s on firm ground for what itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s doing know. There is still a significant political lift to come when we address the fact that weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re not financially solvent through all of 2016,â&#x20AC;? he said.

On Friday about 20 Vashon Island Fire & Rescue employees and volunteers responded to the first significant house fire on Vashon this year. The blaze was at a large, two-story home down a long, gravel road off of Thoreson Road on the west side. Fire Chief Hank Lipe said that once on the scene, crews were able to quickly control the fire, which was contained to the upstairs bedroom where it started. The bedroom sustained significant damage, but Lipe said he was pleased that crews prevented the fire from spreading to the rest of the house. â&#x20AC;&#x153;It was a good save,â&#x20AC;? he said. Lipe said he was also happy with VIFRâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s response time of about six-and-a-half minutes. People were at the home at the time of the fire. King County is investigating its cause.

Assistant Chief George Brown, Captain Chis Huffman and firefighters Randy Tonkin and Jack Thompson complete work at the scene of a house fire on the west side last week.

Janet Rae Baron Janet Rae Baron passed away March 25, 2012 after fighting a courageous battle against cancer and MS. She died peacefully at home with husband Ken Baron at her side. She was born October 22, 1945, in Tucson, AZ, to Ray and Marty Salzman. She grew up with a love of horses, musicâ&#x20AC;&#x201C;especially operaâ&#x20AC;&#x201C;dance, the arts and an appreciation for the beauty of the outdoors. Following graduation from the University of Arizona, she moved to Seattle at age 20 and found new passion and success in sailboat racing and running a yacht rigging business, meeting her dearest lifelong friends in the process. Wanderlust took her on a three month sojourn to Europe and perhaps led her to the next great chapter of their life. Janet was heavily involved in the 1990 Peace Climb of Mt. Everest from the stateside base camp in Port Townsend, WA. She was instrumental in reporting to the world, the minute by minute radio data being received from the climbers en route to the summit. Her love of knowledge, learning, science and exploration became the turn point into a teaching career, first in Seattle then on Vashon Island, where she has lived since 1990. She and Ken Baron married on June 19, 1992, while on one of their numerous great road trip adventuresâ&#x20AC;&#x201C;camping or boating, hiking and seeing the country and the world. Retirement from teaching in 2008 was only the prelude to her later achievements as she continued teaching the Robotics Program at Chautauqua and served many years with the volunteer P.I.E. board as secretary then president. She received honorary membership with the Vashon Sportmenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Club for her service and support of their community activities. Her continued love of beauty and nature is evident in the home and garden she and Ken created together and the many friendships they nurtured. Preceded in death by her parents, she is survived by husband Ken, stepson Trace Baron (Nadia, granddaughter Valerie), sister Joanne Briggs (Greg), cousins Eric Salzman (Tomiko, nephew William) and Mark Salzman (Jessica Yu and two nieces). Friends are invited to share stories of Janet on May 5, 2012 at the Vashon Sportsmenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Club from 11 a.m. to 3 p.m.

Remembrances in her name can be made to Vashon P.I.E.

Chuck Roehm, Dennis Williams and Brad Shinn have been inducted as the new Quartermaster Yacht Club Flag Officers for 2012. It will be a busy year for them, since the club has committed to a major rebuild of its docks. Frank Zellerhoff was named Quartermaster of the Year, while Jay Hanson received the Silver Duck trophy. Both rendered service to the club that was above and beyond the call of duty. Richard and Marilyn Foulkes were named â&#x20AC;&#x153;Boating Family of the Year.â&#x20AC;? The Race Trophy was awarded to Jeanne Dougherty, who with her all-women crew participated in many local sailing races. Bob and Patty Custer received the Opening Day Best Decorated Boat Award. Two awards were given to members who were caught in compromising situations. Brian and Vicki Mannix received the Stiff Rope Award (they had to be towed in), while Bruce Haulman won the Dammit Award, given to the member most likely to have uttered the word â&#x20AC;&#x153;Dammit!â&#x20AC;? during a boating maneuver.

Stockton is a 6 year old Jack Russell Terrier Maurice and Marcel are known as the M&Mâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s at the shelter. Unlike the candy, these boys do melt in your hand. Maurice and Marcel are brothers and buddies and bonded. A home where they can be together is in order for these two. the M&Ms are part of our perfect pals program where there is a discount for the second adoption when a pair is adopted. Maurice is FIV positive and needs to be indoors only. After spending time outside in the cold and wet, Maurice and his brother are happy to be indoors. They have great litter box manners. We are guessing Maurice was born in 2004.

Mixâ&#x20AC;&#x201C;is a wonderful companion. Heâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s very loving, smart & cuddling is one of his favorite past times. He adores walks and playtime. Stockton knows all basic commands and can roll over too! He will do tricks for just about any treat but loves baby carrots, broccoli & peanut butter. He rides in car very well & can either be crated at night, allowed to sleep in bed or on his dog bed. Heâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s excellent when taking baths & getting nails clipped. Prefers older children at least 6 years old & great with other dogs, as far as cats he can take em or leave em. Heâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s protective of his house when strangers come to the door by barking however when introduced heâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s very nice. Stockton is an escape artist and will attempt to run out open doors for a romp around the neighborhood.
