A mystery at Portage

What’s happened to the famed exercise bikes? Islanders want to know By NATALIE JOHNSON Staff Writer

For years, drivers on Dockton Road, beachgoers at Tramp Harbor and visitors to the Island have been delighted, or at least bemused, by a row of old exercise bikes that were left at Portage. Across the street from the now-vacant Portage Store, the bikes curiously faced Tramp Harbor, as if beckoning someone to hop on and take a spin. The so-called Portage Bikes joined the ranks of Vashon’s quirky spots, along with the John Deere Pond, the Jesus Barn and the bike in the tree, and have been immortalized in vacation photos, Vashonthemed greeting cards and even in county Councilmember Joe McDermott’s Facebook cover photo. But for the first time in recent memory, Portage has been empty of exercise equipment for about a month. And the circumstances surrounding the bikes’ disappearance — be it upset neighbors, a landowner tired of the clutter or scrap metal collectors looking for a few extra bucks — seem to be a mystery. “I’m very sad,” said Kate Hunter, who has lived near Portage with her husband for more than 20 years. “I think it was the sweetest thing.” Hunter said she made the Portage Bikes a regular stop whenever friends visited the Island. “We called it the Tramp Harbor Athletic Club,” she said with a laugh. Bruce Haulman, a Vashon historian and retired college professor who lives near Ellisport, said he too misses the bikes, which overlooked what he calls Pedal Beach. “It’s part of the quirkiness of Vashon. I’m sad to see it disappear,” he said. The eclectic mix of exercise equipment has morphed over the years. Some bicycles came and went, and every now and SEE EXERCISE BIKES, PAGE 19

County suspends rumble strip project Cyclists say grooves will make cycling more dangerous By LESLIE BROWN Staff Writer

King County abruptly halted a $75,000 project to install rumble strips along Vashon Highway last week after a group of cyclists — concerned the grooves and ridges will make bikeriding more hazardous — organized a

hasty but spirited protest. County officials said the statefunded project, which began last week and is about half-way complete, will not resume until they’ve had time to talk to Vashon cyclists and address their concerns. They hope to hold an open house on Vashon in mid-May. “We want to make sure the community knows what the project entails, why we’re doing it and hear from them,” said Rochelle Ogershok, a spokeswoman for the county’s Department of Transportation. “We’re

making plans to have a conversation with folks.” Cyclists quickly rallied last week as news of the highway project — the installation of rumble strips down the center of Vashon Highway and along most of its shoulders — spread through their large but loose-knit community. Emails flew. Several called top-ranking county officials. And by Friday morning, a handful of cyclists stood on the corner of Vashon SEE PROJECT, PAGE 12

Lessons from an opera: When singing in Russian, advice from a coach can help By GENE CARLSON For The Beachcomber

Rick Wallace Photo

Maria Marcy works with Anne Terry and Conni Clark during a rehearsal.

Maria Marcy carefully balances a brimming cup of chai on a tipsy round table at Minglement. “Did you know chai in Russian means ‘black tea’?” she says. No, I did not. To be honest, I know next to nothing about the Russian language. Which could be a major problem since I’ve signed up to sing in the chorus of Vashon Opera’s mid-May production of one of Russia’s best-known operas, Tchaikovsky’s

“Eugene Onegin.” To sing, that is, in Russian. It seems like a daunting task for a non-Slavophile. Fortunately, the enthusiastic and endlessly patient Maria Marcy, is on call. A native Russian speaker and Vashon resident for the past 15 years, Maria has, in addition to singing in the 21-member chorus, agreed to act as Russian tutor for the entire opera cast. The need for a language coach is obvious from the first choral rehearsal. For starters, the words in Tchaikovsky’s score are written in Cyrillic, the SEE OPERA, 21

The burglar unsuccessfully attempted to break into the church’s safe, and a truck belonging to the church had also been tampered with, resulting in a broken ignition switch. Whoever robbed the church was also hungry, she said — leaving behind a halfconsumed plate of cookies and cans of soda that had been taken from the church’s refrigerator. And in a criminal move filled with irony, the thief even attempted to pry open the door to the church’s unlocked confessional. On Sunday, Rev. Marc Powell, the parish priest, delivered a homily about the burglary, saying he hoped that the thief would eventually find his way back to the confessional to seek forgiveness for his sins. Powell singled out the theft of the church’s large cross as potentially helpful in terms of instilling remorse in the guilty party. “It’s so big, he can’t sell it,� he said. “He’s got to keep it, perhaps in his living space. Slowly but surely, that cross will start to work on him.�

A burglar who broke into St. John Vianney Church Thursday night made off with a large wooden cross used in processionals, a fax machine, the parish’s sound equipment and a surveillance system that was in the process of being installed. Constance Walker, the church’s pastoral assistant for administration, said the burglary was discovered on Friday morning by the church’s facilities supervisor. The thief or thieves broke a small window in the church’s social hall to enter the building. Walker said that the gates to the parking lot of the church had been closed on Thursday night after a meeting and that the burglar had apparently moved boulders blocking access to the parking lot and damaged a large rhododendron bush in order to drive onto the church grounds. It’s not the first time the church has been burglarized. In 2008, someone stole the church’s safe, which divers later came across on the sea floor just off the Tramp Harbor dock. And an attempted break-in last December prompted a parishioner to purchase the surveillance system that was stolen this time around. Walker said it appeared the thief had

Park district postpones vote on fee hike The Vashon Park District has delayed voting on a measure to raise user fees for youth sports groups so that the clubs can meet with the agency and discuss their concerns about the proposal, according to district officials. The five-member board announced the proposal in March with an eye toward passing the measure at one of its meetings in April. But park district Executive Director Jan Milligan said the board decided to revisit the issue at its May 8 meeting after hearing that some clubs felt the higher fees would place an undue burden on families. Milligan said she’s seeking more financial information from the clubs as well as a history of the fees they’ve paid over the years. “The commissioners are just wanting me to gather more information so that they can reevaluate this whole thing,� she said. The park district sets fees for the use of both park and school facilities under an interlocal agreement that places the park district in charge of maintaining fields and collecting fees for extracurricular use of school facilities. Under the proposal, spearheaded by Commissioner David Hackett, teams that use fields and gyms would pay

$15 per player per season — money that would go into special accounts to cover “extraordinary maintenance� or “extraordinary operational expenses� at the facility their team plays at. But some leagues have expressed concern about the new fees, noting that they’re already charging their players so as to cover the costs associated with their use of Vashon’s public facilities. Vashon Island Junior Basketball (VIJB), for instance, recently purchased a new scoreboard for the school gym where the club plays, said Pat Call, a member of the VIJB board. “The program has managed itself OK this way, and we’ve been able to keep the fees pretty constant,� Call said. Foss Miller, who heads VIJB, agreed, adding that a $15 hike in fees would amount to a 30 percent increase for his club’s members and prove prohibitive for some of them. Like Call, he said he doesn’t know why additional funds are needed. “What would the money be used for? We’re not getting a good, straight answer,� he said. — Leslie Brown

Chamber director to step down this summer By LESLIE BROWN Staff Writer

Debi Richards, who’s helmed the Vashon Island Chamber of Commerce for nearly two years, announced last week that she’s stepping down from the demanding post. Richards will see the chamber through the Strawberry Festival, the organization’s biggest annual event, drawing as many as 30,000 people. The board, she said, hopes to hire someone in the next couple of months who will be able to work with her as she plans and oversees the festival. She expects to step down in mid-August. Richards said she was resigning for personal — not professional — reasons. “This has been a fabulous job. And I’ve been very supported and embraced by the businesses and the community and the board,â€? she said. Asked to explain her decision, she answered, “I don’t want to get too philosophical or personal. ‌ It’s just something I need to do in my life right now.â€? Richards stepped into the executive director’s position at a tricky time for the chamber. Some Islanders were unhappy about plans the chamber had announced to increase tourism on the Island. At the same time, there was tension between the chamber and the Merchants Association — shop owners, many of whom were also chamber members, who developed the association to try to enhance Vashon Town’s retail life. Natalie Sheard, owner of Cafe Luna

'JMF1IPUP

Debi Richards has helped mend fences in Vashon’s business community. and a member of both the chamber and the Merchants Association, said Richards did much to heal the rift. Indeed, she said, she believed Richards agreed to become the executive director in large part because she knew she could play a positive role “She really wanted to mend the gap between the merchants and the chamber. And she knew she could mend it,� Sheard said. Richards, she added, is a good communicator and a “people person.� What’s more, she said, she made it clear that “she was on the merchants’ side.� At the same time, Sheard said, she’s not surprised by Richards’ decision. The post is a challenging one, she said,

adding, “She’s a grandma. She wants to slow down in her life. Who can blame her?� Richards has been at the chamber for six years, working first as an assistant in the two-person office before becoming the director. Patti McClements, the chamber’s board chair and the manager of Puget Sound Energy’s community service office on Vashon, said in a news release that Richards has strengthened the organization in her nearly two years as its director. “Although Debi will be missed, she’s leaving us poised to do great things in the future,� McClements said.

4DIPPMTGPVOEBUJPOMJLFMZXPOUNBLF .BZHPBMPSHBOJ[FSTSFNBJOIPQFGVM The Vashon Island Public Schools Foundation on Monday had raised $235,000 in pledges toward its goal of $500,000 to help bridge the school district’s budget shortfall. Zabette Macomber, chair of the foundation’s board, said it looked as if the foundation wouldn’t meet its goal of raising $500,000 by the end of April. Nonetheless, she said, she was feeling good about the fundraiser’s progress. The foundation seems to have more pledges than it did at this point in the campaign last year, she said, and the recent Spring Break caused a bit of a lull in giving. “We all knew that May 1 was coming very quickly. ‌ I would be pleasantly surprised if we met our goal, but we will just as happily keep taking money ’til the end,â€? she said. Macomber said the “drop deadâ€? deadline for fundraising is June 30, the end of the district’s budget year, but the foundation had hoped to raise the full amount by May 1 so that the district could avoid issuing layoff notices to teachers. “On an emotional level, I just don’t want to do that to our teachers,â€? she said. The foundation’s extra outreach to businesses this

year has been successful so far, Macomber added, and many of Vashon’s lawyers and medical professionals have been pledging along with other business owners. “The business donations are coming along really well,â€? she said. The foundation would, however, like to see more school district families participate in the fundraiser, Macomber said. As of Monday, about 17 percent of district families had pledged to donate, a far cry from the foundation’s goal to see all families pledge some amount. Macomber said she believes many families are planning to donate, but haven’t gotten around to it yet. “People have been so receptive, it’s great,â€? she said. “It’s just inertia right now that we need to get over. ‌ We need people to take two minutes out of their time to actually do it.â€? — Natalie Johnson To pledge to give to the Vashon Island Public Schools Foundation, see www.vashonschools foundation.org or send a check to P.O.

Water taxi riders can breathe a tentative sigh of relief. Washington State Ferries has announced that it won’t prevent passengeronly ferries from docking at Colman Dock in Seattle after the dock’s renovation in 2015, but PO boat operators may have to cover the cost of staying there. Earlier this year, WSF said that plans to renovate Colman Dock included removing Pier 50, where the King County Water Taxi docks along with the Kingston SoundRunner. PO boat riders around the region, as well as local legislators and county Councilmember Joe McDermott, expressed their concern about the plan, saying the boats docked in a prime location for passengers. Ultimately lawmakers included a proviso in the state transportation budget that requires any renovation to the Colman Dock to maintain passenger-only ferry access to the terminal.

Beginning Tuesday, May 1, Washington State Ferries will implement a 3 percent fare increase for all tickets, including multi-ride cards, to help cover the ferry system’s operating costs. The Washington State Transportation Commission approved the increase, the second such fare hike in six months, last August in order to meet the ferry system’s revenue targets. Also beginning in May, a peak-season surcharge of 25 percent will be applied to full-price vehicle tickets on all routes except the San Juan Islands, where the surcharge will be 35 percent.

Lost in detention: It’s happening right now

A rumble over rumble strips: Let’s learn from this mistake

A Vashon man’s lack of legal status lands him in a quagmire

For a moment last week, it looked like some of Vashon’s best and brightest were going to place their cars in front of a pavement grinding machine and face off against what they saw as one of the forces of evil. From a journalistic perspective, it was an auspicious moment. On relatively quiet Vashon Island, a real news story was poised to unfold. But after a private conversation with a deputy sheriff, Steve Abel thought better of the action, which would have landed him in jail for the day. “I have things I need to get done today,� he noted wryly before heading home. And so the moment passed. What hasn’t passed, however, is the controversy that touched off his thoughts of civil disobedience. Many cyclists are outraged by what unfolded last week, when a private road crew hired by King County rolled onto Vashon to begin the work of installing rumble strips the entire length of Vashon Highway. They have reason to be unhappy. The rumble strips along the highway’s shoulders will lower the quality of cycling on the Island, a regional destination for those who love to bike ride. More to the point, no one asked them what they thought before the grinding machine started rumbling down the highway. Ironically, only two weeks before, several county officials had visited Vashon to meet with residents and discuss their plans for the Island — the first official gathering of the county’s Community Service Area, a new approach to public engagement. Officials from the roads division were among those who attended. No one thought to mention the rumble strip project. How did this happen? In the county’s defense, those involved with the effort thought they’d adequately considered the cycling community. They asked the Cascade Bicycle Club how best to approach the project, and the club gave them some direction — though apparently targeted public engagement wasn’t on the list. And in October 2010, the county sent a news release to The Beachcomber, noting that Vashon Highway was one of six rural roadways that would get rumble strips the following year. (The project was ultimately delayed.) We intended to write a news brief about it — the issue seemed minor to us and deserving of only a paragraph or two. But it was a busy couple of news weeks and the item never made it into the paper. No one from the county called to complain, nor were we sent subsequent announcements. In the words of many a politician, mistakes were made. How should we now proceed? The county’s plan to visit Vashon and have a full discussion about the project is a good first step. We encourage all sides — including residents who welcome the strips — to listen fully and well and strive to find a solution that makes sense for Vashon and the region as a whole. It will likely be difficult — and financially prohibitive — to undo what’s been done. But there’s still another half of the project to be completed. Let’s think hard and creatively before anymore rumble strips are installed.

— Charles Torrey, a retired physician, is a member of the Vashon Island Unitarian Fellowship. The documentary “Lost in Detention� will be shown at 7 p.m. Wednesday, May 2, at the Land Trust Building. A discussion will follow. The mass vigil will be held from noon to 2 p.m. Saturday, May 12, at the Northwest Detention Center, at 1623 East J Street, Tacoma. For more information or carpooling, email immigration@ vashonuu.org.

I am well aware that rumble strips save lives. And two-lane Vashon Highway is the perfect place for them. Yes, the rumble strips will be inconvenient for cyclists, less so when they get used to them. But civil disobience against a life-saving measure? Nonsense!

places around the world, suitcase in hand, set down on a corner in a country that may be totally strange to them. It is another toxic plume coming over to us from across the water, though spreading inhumanity rather than arsenic. Both are harmful in longterm subtle ways, tearing at the fabric of our community’s health. A small group of people has been visiting this facility on a regular basis to vigil, support families and protest. The New Sanctuary Movement of Washington State has been there on the second Saturday of each month for years, and in the last year Unitarians from our Island have joined them. It is about education, compassion, supporting individuals and moving toward change in our national policies. Two events are coming up for those who would like to learn more — a screening of the Frontline documentary “Lost in Detention� and a mass vigil at the detention center in a show of anger for the situation our country has created and compassion for those caught up in it. (See box for details.) I hope many Islanders can join us for one or both of these events. “We all belong� is the recent Island phrase. I believe it’s true, even when our government tries to tell us otherwise.

Right now a longtime Vashon resident and small business owner sits in jail in Tacoma, though he is accused of no crime. At his family’s request, his name will not be used, but the facts remain. He has been there since September, and during that time he has not seen the sky or smelled fresh air. When he is moved about the facility, he is placed in shackles. His mail and visits are monitored. Though he is in jail, he has no right to a court-appointed attorney if not able to pay for his defense. He has no right to a jury trial. The person deciding his case is an administrative law judge, because this is just an administrative matter. This jail is called the Tacoma Northwest Detention Center, because people aren’t imprisoned, they are just “detained.� Even those holding him would agree that even though he is being treated like a criminal, he is not one. What he is accused of is being in this country without proper legal status — commonly referred to in the vernacular as “an illegal� but more properly called an undocumented immigrant. This is a civil offense, not even a misdemeanor. More like a traffic ticket. The consequences, however, are much different. Deportation from the country instead of a fine. Separation from his American citizen wife and children. Loss of his livelihood and the ability to support his family. Being sent to a country from which he was taken when he was too young to remember and where he knows no one. There are many levels to the situation of this neighbor of ours. As may be obvious, he is the kind

of person something like the Dream Act might be able to help — someone who came into this country through no decision of his own, who has made the kind of contribution to our country that he and we can be proud of and who really has no way out of the dilemma of not having a proper legal status. “They should get legal if they want to live here!� Great idea, except that the laws are a labyrinth with lots of ways out and almost no way in unless you are rich. “Then they should go back to where they came from!� And just how is that supposed to work? “They should just fess up to their criminal ways and self deport.� Exactly how is that supposed to happen when one is brought here as a young child and now has a family, dependents and a productive life? There is just no sensible legal solution for even the most honorable and law-abiding person in this circumstance. Bad enough, though, many in our country disagree. “Which part of illegal don’t you understand?� That, of course, could have been said about runaway slaves before the Civil War or Japanese-Americans who resisted internment during World War II. But none of us should be complacent about the situation in the tide flats of Tacoma, where more than 1,500 people are being held at this private prison. It is a place where people can disappear and be held for years, then be discharged in the dead of night to

Vaccinations

Pertussis outbreak makes issues clear

The recent outbreak of whooping cough on Vashon showcased just how fast communicable diseases can spread and refuels the debate about low vaccination rates in the community. On Vashon we have the privilege to engage in a hearty discussion about the costs and benefits of childhood vaccinations. Some choose not to vaccinate because the likelihood that their child will become infected with a disease like measles or whooping cough is limited (though still possible). They reason that even if one becomes infected, they will have access to lifesaving medical care. Rarely does anyone worry about children dying due to vaccine-preventable deaths. But vaccinations are a privilege that does not extend to every child across the world. For many children, access to vaccinations can be the difference between a healthy life and death. This year, 1.7 million children worldwide will die from a vaccinepreventable disease. That is one child every 20 seconds. For millions more, early childhood sicknesses from vaccine-preventable diseases will cause lifelong health problems. These children

need vaccines to give them the best shot at a healthy and productive life. Many do not have the money for these vaccinations, or access to the medical care necessary to get life-saving treatment if they fall ill with the measles or pneumonia. While we debate the pros and cons of vaccinating children, let’s remember that vaccines are one of the most cost-effective ways to save the lives of children in developing countries. For just $20, you can vaccinate a child against measles, pneumonia, diarrhea and polio. Even if you do not want to vaccinate your children, please support the use of vaccines in the developing world. Contact me at rosetta.avoliotoly@gmail. com or go to Shot@Life. org to learn more about childhood vaccination or to donate — because every child deserves a shot at life. — Rosie Avolio-Toly

Rumors

Story did not help our restaurant We would like to start by saying that we have never had poor feelings about The Beachcomber. In fact, quite the opposite. We have loved and supported the newspaper for years, by

advertising in it on a regular basis as well as purchasing the newspaper weekly. Two weeks ago, The Beachcomber ran an article about a rumored murder on Vashon and was very clear that it was in fact a rumor. (“Murder on Vashon? Not here, authorities say.�) However, La Playa’s name was associated with the rumor. Here is a quote from the article: “According to one rumor, a body turned up in the Dumpster outside of La Playa, a restaurant next to the north-end ferry dock.� Putting a business name, particularly a restaurant, in the same sentence with the words “murder� or “body turned up in the Dumpster� will without a doubt hurt the business and did. We experienced a dramatic and unexplainable drop in revenue last week. There are numerous businesses that share that Dumpster, and The Beachcomber was expressly asked not to print the restaurant’s name. Why did the paper choose to print our name despite our clear request not to? We feel that the editor ran this article with a lack of consideration for our business and our customers. We at La Playa are making every effort to enhance and improve our business during these hard economic times. We have re-opened the espresso bar

Thanks for remembering Our family wants to thank everyone who sent all the beautiful flowers and sympathy cards for Kay’s memorial. I’m sure she knows and wants me to thank you all too. Bob Therkelsen and Family

Thank you for helping My heartfelt thanks to the many people who have helped me navigate Vashon during the past year. I am grateful to the strangers who have picked me up off the floor and parking lot of Thriftway, and by the highway in front of Full Circle and in other public places, and to the many, many people who have opened doors for me around town and offered to help in other ways. Vashon is truly a caring community. Myrla Dean

A nurse says thanks. Thank you to the residents of Vashon Island! Forty years ago, those of you who lived on the island worked with University of Washington medical and nursing schools and a federal medical program to open an RN-staffed community clinic. Yes, we had one medical doctor, but acute care and after hours treatment was needed. To provide local oversight and direction of

the clinic, 12 brave residents formed the citizen board; they held bake sales, and Granny’s Attic supported us with volunteering and financing through their garage sales. This community involvement was a new concept. We were the second RN clinic to open in Washington. Licensed by the state, the registered nurses were trained in advance practice for emergencies and assessment. Back-up doctors at Harborview were on call 24/7. Each patient seen was reported; laboratory and Xrays were taken and orders given to the nurses. Records were reviewed by the UW Committee for Quality and Legal Practice. Residents had access to the nurses 24 hours a day; house calls were made. We worked with the volunteer ambulance, although we did not travel with them. They were well trained, and we stayed on the Island for emergency calls. This, my friends, was the beginning in Washington of the profession now known as Advanced Registered Nurse PractitionersCertified. Granny’s Attic volunteers (bless them) have continued to provided support to your now full-fledged medical center. The support of our Island residents started the clinic, and now I look at the full medical center staff and smile, because without you there would not have been such full care on this rural Island. Mary E. Clark, MSN, ARNP

Editor’s note: There was no request made by the owner not to mention La Playa’s name in the news story. Rather, the owner said he did not want to talk to a reporter about the rumors.

Living green

Local resources offer advantages I compliment Richard Mintz for his wisdom in choosing Vashon for his home and for his good fortune in having the means to do so. (“Modular Goes Trendy,� March 21.) Vashon has wonderful natural and human resources that make it a great place to live. But why live here yet spend one’s housing budget in Massachusetts? Is it because the efficiencies and qualities of a factorybuilt house are so superior that it is worthwhile to

ship it all the way across the continent? I doubt it. Is it because a house so energy efficient and energy generating cannot be built on site here on Vashon? I know this is not true. For there is a house on Vashon that was built here and achieved a five-star Built Green standard, employing both passive solar design and photo-voltaic panels. This owner also chose Vashon deliberately, purchased property, but then hired a neighbor to design the house, hired Island carpenters to build it, worked diligently to achieve Built Green standards, was able to participate in final design changes and worked with Vashon Forest Stewards so that the interior trim, the exposed and clear rafter tails, as well as the posts and beams of the porch structure were all milled by Vashon Forest Stewards from sustainably harvested Vashon Douglas fir. The house cost about the same per square foot as Mr. Mintz’s, and most of that money was spent on the Island. I have not seen Mr. Mintz’s house, but I would bet that the experience of

living in these two houses is comparable, as are their respective energy efficiencies. In cost, however, and in impact on the Vashon community, the two houses are vastly different — the advantage being entirely to the Vashon-built house and owner who, in addition to getting a house built in part with Island fir, got Island friends, and the satisfaction of contributing significantly to the Island economy.

Road stakes

Are they truly needed at all? Although I appreciate King County’s willingness to shorten the stakes, we Islanders still have to look at numbers compromising our views. They could get rid of all of the stakes. Will they now want to put stakes on all our roads? With GPS and technology today, no signs should be needed.

Q:

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

I am due to close on the sale of my house in a few weeks. I think that I’ve done everything that the buyers and agents have asked me to do. Now they are telling me I have to install carbon monoxide alarms in the house. I have a 100% electric house! I don’t have any gas appliances or anything. So what’s the big deal?

A:

Beginning April 1st of this year all homes sold will have to have CO, carbon monoxide alarms installed. They are not expensive and everyone should have them in their home anyway. It doesn’t matter that your home is all electric. Use of fossil fuel heating (oil, natural gas and propane) is common here and should be a priority for this alarm, which notifies residence that there is a leak of carbon monoxide in the house. It doesn’t smell and you can’t see it so it really is a silent killer. Sadly, the main reason that even all electric homes have to install the alarm is due to people operating portable heaters in their homes when their power is off. People die every year from CO poisoning mainly from propane or kerosene heaters being used inside the house or even gas barbeques! Once again we have to have a new law trying to protect us from our own ignorance. Over 4,000 people go to emergency rooms every year to be treated for carbon monoxide poisoning. They‘re the lucky ones. 400 per year die. I know it’s an extra expense but it’s worth it. Spending a few dollars to save someone’s life is an investment worth making, don’t you think? I should add that the smoke alarms have been mandatory in homes for a long time and yet, I still see homes without them. Some of these homes even have small children living there. These are simple things we can all do to protect our families. Congratulations on your sale, by the way.

It was a smaller crowd this year, said organizer Paul Engels, who attributed lower turnout to the indoor event to the good weather. “It was still fun,� he said.

About 300 people, including several adults, attended the Sunday night concert, which featured the Blue Scholars, a popular hip-hop duo known for their fast-paced and often politically astute lyrics. The concert was held at the Open Space for Arts & Community. Organizers Harris Levinson, Rob Bordner and Fred Strong said the event was a success. Not only did it give several youth a chance to perform, but it also has led to ongoing relationships between Island youth and adult mentors in everything from music to poster production. “It was a great party, and the Blue Scholars put on a great show. Our student musicians killed it from start to finish. And we are thrilled that mentorships and passions continue to be strengthened,� Strong said in an email to The Beachcomber.

HOW AN ARCHITECTURAL FIRM HELPED CREATE A MODEL FOR

THE FUTURE OF DOWNTOWN BREMERTON.

When the owners of Rice Fergus Miller, an architectural, interiors and planning firm, outgrew their location, they decided to convert an abandoned building in downtown Bremerton into their new office and studio. So they turned to Bank of America for land and construction loans to help realize their vision of designing the most energy-efficient office building in the Pacific Northwest. The building was awarded LEED Platinum certification and helped spark the city’s redevelopment. The area is now home to new parks, shops and offices — many of which Rice Fergus Miller designed. Rice Fergus Miller is another example of how we’re working to help locally based businesses grow and hire in Bremerton — and across the country. In 2011, we provided $222.5 million in new credit to small businesses in Washington — an increase of 28% from 2010.

ficionados of musical theater, rejoice — there will be two performances of the revue “Side by Side by Sondheim� this weekend.

)FBEPVUUPUIF#JLF A double bill of Fendershine and Joe Panzetta will play a free show at 8:30 p.m. Saturday at Red Bicycle Bistro. Fendershine is a new local band that plays a mix of original songs and rarely covered rock and roll. Band members include Rick Vanselow and Eric Frith, Steve Meyer and Kim Thal. Joe Panzetta is an Island-based multi-instrumentalist, composer and singer. He performs original songs on guitar, banjo and harmonium. He has a long and eclectic musical resume that includes many collaborations and recordings.

The show, a compendium of some of the best-loved songs by Broadway’s most celebrated living composer and lyricist, had a Tony-nominated run on Broadway in the late 1970s and has subsequently been produced by theater companies all over the world. Now, it’s time for Islanders to sit back and soak up Stephen Sondheim’s intricate melodies and wickedly witty lyrics. “Side by Side� includes songs from “West Side Story,� “Gypsy,� “Follies,� Sweeney Todd,� “Into the Woods,� “Company,� “A Little Night Music,� “Merrily We Roll Along� and several other shows from the Sondheim canon. Elizabeth Ripley, Drama Dock’s artistic director, is excited to raise the curtain on the show, in part because she believes that too few Islanders are aware of Sondheim’s genius and legacy. “Side by Side by Sondheim� will be presented at 7:30 Saturday and 2 p.m. Sunday, at Vashon High School. Tickets, $10 to $20, are on sale at Vashon Bookshop and at the door.

“In musical theater, Stephen Sondheim has a nickame: God,� she said with a laugh. “He is a god in man’s form on the planet writing musical theater.� Ripley noted that few of the composer’s musicals have been produced on Vashon, and all of those were youth shows, including high school productions of “West Side Story� and “A Funny Thing Happened on the Way to the Forum,� and last year’s Drama Dock-produced teen production of “Into the Woods.� But, with “Side by Side by Sondheim,� adult Island singers will take center stage. The show’s cast includes such Drama Dock stalwarts as Ripley, Marshall Murray, Stephanie Murray, Louie Mangione, Marita Ericksen, J.R. Crawford, Max Lopuszynski, Gretchen Neffenger, Elizabeth Schoen, Arlette Moody, Phil Dunn, Stephen Floyd, Earthsong, Shannon Flora, Lauri Hennessey, Elizabeth Anthony and Richard Montague. The show will also feature a choir of kids from Drama Dock’s Youth Theatre Initiative, singing the poignant song, “Children Will Listen.� The show, scheduled for two performances only, is being staged for a good cause — to raise much-needed funds for the Island’s beloved community theater company, Drama Dock. Drama Dock, now in its 36th year as part of the fabric of Vashon’s cultural life, has produced shows ranging from huge musicals such as “The Sound of Music� and “Annie,� to edgier fare including last year’s “Rocky Horror Show.� But Ripley said that Drama

Island singers — from left, Elizabeth Ripley, Richard Montague, Stephanie Murray and Marshall Murray — will perform in “Side by Side by Sondheim.� Dock needs the community’s ongoing support to continue to present such eclectic work. “Doing theater is a money-losing proposition, and theaters are closing left and right,� she said. “We are funded entirely by ticket sales, membership and volunteers, and we only charge between $7.50

and $20 for tickets.� She hopes that Islanders will turn out in droves for “Side by Side,� and revel in the talents of both Sondheim and local performers. “This will be a grand gathering of talent not to be missed,� she said.

The famed singer and songwriter first had a gig on the Island in 2006, and returned the next year to play a sold-out benefit concert for Vashon Youth & Family Services and Rotary. She also played on the Island in 2006. The concert on Saturday, part

of a national tour, is inspired by the broad-based Occupy movement and Shocked’s involvement in the group Occupy Fights Foreclosures. This tour introduces Jimmy Cabeza deVaca, an Angeleno who plays nylon-string guitar, accordion, banjo, electric guitar and piano. He will open the show with Shocked’s “Folkaoke� concept, accompanying volunteers from the audience who have a choice of singing “Blowing in the Wind,� “Deportee,� “Do-Re-Mi� or “This Land Is Your Land.� For her part, Shocked will mix audience favorites spanning her two-decade-long career and also treat the audience to new material.

Highway and 204th Avenue S.W., where workers were about to resume their day’s work and Islanders were ready to engage in civil disobedience to block it. “I’m prepared to park my car in front of them,� said Steve Abel, a high-profile Islander and avid cyclist, nodding toward his red Volvo. “We want to gain enough time for the politicians to realize what a screw-up this is.� The cyclists said they had no objection to rumble strips down the center of the highway. But such strips along the sides of the road cut into the shoulders where cyclists ride, compromising the quality of their experience, forcing some cyclists to ride in traffic and making bike-riding on Vashon more dangerous, they said. “It’s just totally impossible to ride on it,� said Rusty Knowler, who stood at the corner with his bike and who had just attempted navigating the indentations. “If there’s debris or a car parked in the way, you have to cross those strips.� “They’re seriously damaging the best cycling in all of King County,� said Abel. As the cyclists were contemplating their next moves, however, two King County Sheriff’s deputies showed up and told Abel and the other men that it was illegal to block the project. Sounding frustrated, Abel told the officers the project had to be stopped before more work was undertaken. “The damage is being done to the roads today,� he said. “I rode yesterday, and it just about knocked me off my bike.� But when the officers made it clear that blocking the project would result in arrests, Abel, who joked that he hadn’t been

our bike lanes this spring.â€? A handful of cyclists held a meeting Saturday afternoon where they discussed their concerns and how to address them. The consensus, said Peter Ray, the group’s unofficial spokesman, is to push the county to regrade those stretches of highway that now have rumble strips along the shoulder. It’s an expensive proposition, he said. According to one website, the installation of rumble strips costs $500 to $3,000 per mile, while removing them costs around $13,000 a mile. Even so, he said, many cyclists would like to see the strips removed. “This (project) has destroyed some pretty good bike lanes,â€? he said. County Councilman Joe McDermott, meanwhile, said he’s troubled by the lack of outreach county officials undertook before embarking on the project. They sent out a brief news release about it 18 months ago and consulted with the Cascade Bicycle Club, but McDermott said no announcement was issued in recent weeks about the impending project, which proved disruptive to drivers as well. “I’m concerned that the roads division of King County didn’t communicate with people on the Island before it did it. That’s clearly an omission on our part,â€? he said. McDermott said he’s not made up his mind about the details of the project and the installation of rumble strips along the shoulder. “I’m not saying the project is dead. But it’s important that we come out and listen to Islanders’ concerns ‌ before we potentially go forward,â€? he said. Asked if the remainder of the project could change as a result of conversations with Islanders, he answered, “Absolutely. Otherwise, it’s a pretty meaningless conversation.â€?

Pirate baseball team finds its way to a win By RITA ALLMAN For The Beachcomber

The Vashon High School baseball team won its first game this season last week against Seattle Christian, but also took losses to Cascade Christian and Charles Wright. Vashon hosted Cascade Christian on Tuesday, April 17, and the visitors came away with a six-inning victory, 15-3. Josh Myer started on the hill for the Pirates and pitched three innings, allowing eight hits and five earned runs. Ben Reoux relieved Myer in the fourth and surrendered four hits, five earned runs and four base on balls. Michael Bernheisel came on in the sixth and got the final two outs. The Vashon hitting attack was held to four singles. Defensively, the Pirates committed five errors, leading to five unearned runs. The line score: Cascade Christian 15 runs, 12 hits, 0 errors, Vashon 3 runs, 4 hits, 5 errors. On Friday the Pirates defeated the Seattle Christian Warriors, 9-7, earning their first victory of the season. Kelly Sullivan took the mound for Vashon and held the opposition to four earned runs and a single hit over six innings. Erik Powelson and Michael Bernheisel closed out the game. On the hitting side, the Pirates lashed out 12 hits. The Warriors held a 4-1 lead going into the fifth inning, when Vashon struck for four runs. They would add another four in the sixth to take charge of the game. The attack was led by Powelson, Zack Drape, Joe Wald and Reoux. Ezra Lacina, Ryan Bernheisel and Myer all added singles, and Sullivan chipped in with a double. Defensively, Vashon had only one error. Coach Steve Hall said he liked what he saw on the field that day.

Josh Myer delivers a pitch in the first inning as the Pirates battle Cascade Christian on rainsoaked Jim Martin Field at Vashon High School last Tuesday. “It was the first game we put it all together and it gives us something to build on.� Hall said. The line score: Vashon 9 runs, 12 hits, 1 error, Seattle Christian 7 runs, 2 hits, 2 errors. Due to multiple rainouts earlier in the season, Vashon played a rare Saturday league game against the Charles Wright Tarriers at home. The Pirates lost 15-0, and Tarrier pitcher Sam Gaume threw a five-inning perfect game against the home team. Starting on the mound for the Pirates was Wald, who was relieved by Michael Bernheisel in the fourth, and Reoux pitched the final inning. The combined trio allowed 10 hits, eight walks and seven

earned runs. The remaining runs were the result of seven Pirate errors. Vashon falls to 1-5 in the Nisqually League and 1-7 overall. The line score: Charles Wright 15 runs, 10 hits, 0 errors, Vashon 0 runs, 0 hits, 7 errors. Hall said he had to tip his hat to Charles Wright’s Guame, who he said pitched a beautiful game. “We hit a lot of first pitches and didn’t really make him work too much,� he said, “Joe Wald pitched a great game, but unfortunately the defense didn’t show up to play with six errors.�

The Vashon Lacrosse Club’s boys high school team finished the week with two consecutive wins over Highline and Seattle’s Nathan Hale High School to remain solidly in the hunt for a berth in the state playoffs. In a Wednesday, April 18, game against Highline, Vashon bolted to a 6-0 lead in the first quarter, with three goals each from Dan Lofland and Caz Mozeleski. Vashon’s offensive intensity tapered off in the second and third quarters, but led by goalie Aaron Bomber and defender Nick Amundsen, the defense stood solid to thwart any Highline offensive surge. In the fourth quarter, Vashon’s offense awakened with a flurry of four goals to seal the win, 13-4. Mozeleski finished with his best performance of the season with five goals and an assist. On Saturday Vashon faced off against Seattle’s Nathan Hale High School, which has a record of seven wins and two losses. Vashon started sluggishly, but led by Luke Hembree with a goal and two assists, Vashon stayed close up to halftime, trailing 5-4. Led by Goalie Bomber, Vashon stayed close through the third quarter before Vashon’s offense took charge. Starting the fourth quarter, Nathan Hale held a 7-6 lead, but Vashon held true to its vision to “find a way to win� and scored three consecutive goals to take and never relinquish the lead. With four minutes to play, Lofland, Mozeleski and Hembree led the charge to secure the win. Nathan Hale cut Vashon’s lead to one with less than two minutes to play. Vashon responded with a whistling goal from Lofland assisted by Griff Jennings. Vashon’s win put it over 500 with a 5 and 4 record. The team’s next game is Saturday against Ballard at 2 p.m. at home.

Vashon athletes take top spots at track meet

Girls lacrosse continues to win

By KEVIN ROSS

For The Beachcomber

For The Beachcomber

The Vashon Valkyries girls high school lacrosse team earned back-to-back wins last week, taking down teams from Kennedy High School and Klahowya. The Valkyries played their first home game on Tuesday, April 17, against Kennedy High School. Vashon dominated from the first draw, setting the tone for the entire game. Zina Carroll anchored the defense with several interceptions and controlled ground balls, soundly feeding them to an athletic force of midfielders led by Sarah Raymond. The Valkyries led 13-1 at the half, a margin that Kennedy couldn’t shake. The game ended with a 18-1 victory for Vashon. Genevieve Rauma and Anneke Steneker led the scoring with five goals and one assist each, followed by Ellen Chappelka, who drove in four.

After a week off for Spring Break, members of the Vashon track and field team did not miss a step as they hit their stride and enjoyed a fair amount of success at a meet at Orting on Thursday. Despite the soggy conditions, the Pirates provided some very bright moments for the few die-hard spectators that showed at the meet. Senior Taylor Hernandez took first in the girls 100-meter hurdles. Hernandez said she was pumped up and excited to score points for the team in this event, along with the 100 meters, long jump and 300-meter hurdles. “I feel a sense of accomplishment from today,� she said. Junior Elan Peterson took first in the boys 110-meter high hurdles and in the boys long jump with a leap of 17 feet, 5 inches. Sophomore Maddi Groen also saw the podium twice, finishing first in the girls 800 meters with a finish time of 2:47 and first in the 1,600 meters with a time of 6:12. Senior Peri Roberts claimed her first victory of the season in the girls 3,200 meters with a time of 13:39.

On Wednesday, April 18, the Valkyries traveled to Silverdale to play Klahowya. The wellmatched teams battled goal for goal, going into the half tied at 4-4. In the second half, the Valkyrie defense locked down its game and did not allow a single goal, proving how games are won with great defense. Goalie Anna Berti was at the heart of the defensive effort with 20 saves, while defender Samantha Philip hustled the ball out of the danger zone into offensive territory. Rauma led the scoring with three goals, followed by Steneker with two. Midfielder Grace DeGraaf landed a powerful rope shot in the upper right hand pocket, and Chappelka showed her stick skills with one down low. The Valkyries won with a final score of 7-4.

It’s so good to be home!

Fastpitch softball fumbles in the mud, takes two losses

VHS soccer dominates at home and away

By KAREN O’NEIL For The Beachcomber

Overwhelming victories were the claim of the Pirates over the past week as the boys soccer team beat all four teams it took on. Coach Paul Beytebiere said the spate of victories reinforced the overall strength of the team’s talent and strategy this season. “The leadership from the seniors and juniors has been exceptional. ... The team has been gelling really well, and the play has been fun to watch,� he said. With home-field advantage and to the delight of spirited fans, the Pirates racked up four goals in each game against Charles Wright and Cascade Christian, who both came up empty-handed last Thursday and Friday. During Thursday’s game Against Charles Wright, goals came quickly to the Pirates as midfielder Shane Bedard drove one into the net in the first two minutes of play. The next two goals, not long after, were by forward Victor Moreira, also

assisted by Bedard. With confidence, the Pirates were able to continue a defensive game, aided by the ever-present glove of goalie Philip Vandevanter. A final goal scored by Van Ralston in the 68th minute of the second half sealed the 4-0 win. Friday’s performance against Cascade Christian (4-0) was again dominated by the Pirates, who led off with a goal three minutes in by forward Ezra Koenig, fed up the pitch by Ralston. Additional goals came to fruition in the second half when chemistry and strategy between Victor Moreira and midfielder Nick Gass allowed each to both score and assist each other’s goals. Prior to the final whistle, Koenig netted the last goal. On Tuesday at an away game against Cascade Christian, Vashon led with a 7-3 win. Moreira, a Brazilian exchange student, completed a three-goal hat trick — a significant contribution to the win that day. Peter Amick and Jacob Gateman

Overall passing and the forcefully defensive back of Jesse Hazzard, Jessie Turner and Matt Swope kept their opponents with fewer advantages. Monday night, in the fourth game of the Pirates’ winning streak, VHS dominated a short-handed Chimacum squad, 7-0, with Moreira scoring five goals.

Contributing to the stellar week were the junior varsity team’s wins against the first three opponents, including a two-game shutout with goalie Ben Stemmer at the net. The Pirates will play Orting today in an away game and take on Life Christian at 6 p.m. Friday at home. — Karen O’Neil is a longtime VHS soccer volunteer.

After having several games cancelled due to inclement weather earlier this season, the Vashon fastpitch softball team played two games last week and lost to both Cascade Christian and Seattle Christian. The Pirates played their fourth game of the season at home on Tuesday, April 17, against Cascade Christian. As the teams arrived to play, the clouds opened up and soaked the field, the fans and the players. With the umpire’s approval, both teams agreed to play in wet and sloppy conditions. In the first inning, Cascade Christian managed six runs and Vashon just one run from an RBI hit by Paige Browne. Cascade had several memorable hits to the gap in the outfield and ran the score up to 21 by the top of the fifth. Vashon had a rally with eight players up to bat and three scoring runs in the bottom of the fifth. Pirate pitcher Sophie Baker managed five strikeouts, and the team only had three errors in the game. The final score was Cascade Christian 21, Vashon 4. On Friday Vashon travelled to play Seattle Christian in an away game. Vashon lost with a final score of 11-1. The Pirates struggled through the first two innings, allowing Seattle Christian seven runs. By the third inning the Pirates awoke to hold the score and get a point. Corrine Pruett is credited for an RBI to get Browne in to score. At the bottom of the fifth inning, Seattle scored four runs and as rules go for softball, if the home team is up by 10 runs in the fifth, the game is over. Weather permitting, the team will play at Orting today and at home against Life Christian on Monday, April 30. — Jackie Merrill is the VHS fastpitch softball coach.

then an elliptical or rowing machine appeared. Some past photos show just a handful of bikes at the spot, while one snapshot shows as many as 16. But those who drive past Portage often say they began to notice more significant changes about the bikes several months ago. The dumping increased, and the spot became crowded with junkier bicycles and other exercise equipment. Other trash appeared too, and someone even dropped off a couch. “For a while there were so many, it kind of became a dumping grounds,� said Maria Pottinger, who lives nearby. Then the trend seemed to reverse, some say, and the bikes and other equipment began to disappear. For a while there were a couple treadmills left, and then nothing. Nadine Edelstein, a tile artist who lives at Portage, said she and some neighbors periodically cleared out the equipment when it began to pile up, always leaving the classic bikes with the thin, metal bars that the spot is best known for. “We would get together and cull them out to keep it looking a little more tidy,� she said. However, Edelstein said she’s not responsible for the total disappearance of the bikes. She thinks that perhaps the person who rented the apartment attached to the Portage Store for a time or a road crew working in the area mistakenly took the bikes, thinking they were doing the community a favor. “It cold be just a very easy misunderstanding,� she said.

Jim Didricksen, a county roads supervisor based on Vashon, said Vashon’s road workers are familiar with the Island and he doesn’t think they would touch the bikes. “It could have been a crew that came over (from offIsland) and did it, but it’s highly unlikely,� Didricksen said. Other neighbors suspect the bikes were hauled off by someone collecting scrap metal. “The price of scrap is up now more than usual,� said Lou Engels, who lives nearby and owns Engels Repair & Towing. However, the most widely spread rumor is that the owner of the Portage Store building, which has been vacant since 2001, finally got tired of the bikes and cleared them out. Pottinger, whose children sometimes played on the bikes while waiting for the school bus, called the rumor “completely hearsay,� but added that she wouldn’t blame the owner if it were true. “My thought is if the person at the Portage Store owns that property, he can do what he wants with it,� she said. According to the King County Department of Assessments, the strip of land where the bikes once sat is part of the parcel that includes the Portage Store building and is owned, along with the building, by a man named Brian Gordon. The county lists Gordon’s address as a P.O. Box in Steamboat Springs, Colo., but neighbors say they believe he currently lives in Seattle, visits the Island now and then and could have tossed the bikes. However, one man who was outside the Portage Store last week said he knows Gordon and doesn’t think he was the one who got rid of the bikes. The man, who doesn’t live on Vashon and declined to give his name, said he recently bought a boat from Gordon.

He said Gordon was a nice person and he doubted he would take the beloved bikes. “I’m a pretty good judge of character,� he said. The Beachcomber’s attempts to contact Gordon were unsuccessful. Maggi McClure, who lives on Maury Island and heads the Vashon Sheepdog Classic, may hold one clue in the bikes’ disappearance. In mid-April, McClure said, she was driving on Dockton Road and saw a group of men load the last remaining treadmill into the back of a truck filled with scrap metal. “It looked like people collecting scrap,� she said. McClure, along with many others, says she hopes more bikes will eventually be dropped off at Portage. But she worries that the charm of the original, old-style bicycles may be lost forever. “Exercise equipment has changed. Those great old basic exercise bikes don’t exist anymore,� she said. “Maybe they’re gone, unless someone has some hiding in a basement somewhere.� Edelstein said she, too, would like to see the iconic bikes return, and is even holding on to one she could put there. “I’m not putting it out there if somebody’s going to toss it,� she said. “I’m kind of waiting for things to come back to normal.�

RUSSELL JAMES JOHNSON 11-24-1912 to 4-19-2012

Russell James Johnson passed away peacefully on April 19th, 2012 after a brief illness at the Washington Veterans Home in Retsil, Washington. Russell was born on November 24, 1912 in Manfred, ND to Malena and John Johnson. He attended school and farmed in Manfred prior to enlisting in the US Army in 1934. He served in the 59th Coast Artillery in the Philippines. In 1941 he reenlisted to serve in the Medical Corps where he would spend time in Australia and again in the Philippines. Between periods of service he married his former wife, Mary and built his family, including their four sons. He raised his family in the Seattle area and became a long time resident and friend to many on Vashon Island. Russell enjoyed nothing more than long conversations with his friends and family. He had many tales to share about his army days, his work in a Seattle sawmill or the Bremerton shipyards, his farming and hunting experiences, world travels, romances and many other adventures over the years. He also greatly enjoyed corresponding with his far flung nieces, nephews and friends via his trusty manual type writer and those who knew him well knew that he was a prodigious letter writer. He was very much a self-taught man; learning through a lifelong love of reading that continued until his death. In this and many other ways he was a great inspiration to those around him. He will be remembered for his direct and frank outlook on life, his overflowing humor and goodwill, but most of all he will be remembered with love. Russell is preceded in death by his parents and 6siblings. He is survived by his four sons: John, Russell (wife Judy), Terry and Chuck (wife Diane), 8 grandchildren, two great-granddaughters and very many beloved nieces, nephews and friends. A brief service will take place on May 4th at 1:00 p.m. at the Tahoma National Cemetery at 18600 SE 240th Street, Kent, WA 98042. In lieu of flowers, memorials may be made to Manfred History and Preservation, Inc. (MHP) at PO Box 321, Harvey, North Dakota 58341

33-letter Russian alphabet. “Letters that look like English letters sound completely different,� Maria notes. “Also, there are Russian sounds that Americans aren’t used to.� To prove the point, she grits her teeth together and makes a nasal wheeze. “On top of this, Tchaikovsky (she pronounces the composer’s name with the proper Russian flair: chay-KOFF-ski) used 18th century Old Slavonic folk music for the chorus. Some of the words are no longer even used in everyday Russian,� she adds, cheerfully. While the choral part of “Eugene Onegin� is blessedly brief relative to the whole opera, a portion of it is sung lickety-split. A CD with Maria carefully enunciating every syllable was handed to every chorus member to help with memorization. “Skoree noh zhenkee, zappa ho dushkee� she intones on the disc in slow, flawless Russian. “Bay lee roo zhenkee, sara po dushkee.�

PNW

8887"4)0/#&"$)$0.#&3$0.

A few rehearsals later, Maria is encouraged. “I know it’s hard, but I was impressed when we put the words and music together. It sounds really good.� That’s personally important to Maria because the story of Eugene Onegin, from a work by Russia’s greatest poet, Aleksandr Pushkin, is known and beloved by nearly every Russian. “It’s a story of all the timeless things in our lives — marriage, temptations, loyalty and friendship,� she says. “I had to learn Pushkin by heart in high school,� she adds. “I had a wonderful literature teacher who made me memorize Tatiana’s entire letter scene.� In the opera, the famous “Letter Aria� runs more than 10 minutes, uninterrupted. It’s a tour de force for any soprano and is sung in Vashon Opera’s production by the company’s artistic director, Jennifer Krikawa. Maria was raised 1,000 miles east of Moscow in the gritty industrial city of Nizhniy Tagil in the Ural Mountains. Her parents were originally from Siberia — her father an electrician and her mother a microbiologist. She won a highly competitive admission to the foreign language department of the

at Kronos in downtown Vashon. Some of her imported art will find its way into the opera set, designed to create the ambiance of Pushkin’s era. “It’s going to be like being in Russia in the late 1800s. We’re going to have a fabulous Russian show.� And there’s family pride: Husband Ken and son Dmitry will also be on stage in the production. Sipping the last of her Minglemint chai, she adds: “I started working in Russia as an English tutor for Russian students. Now I’m a Russian tutor for Vashon Opera. You never know what surprises life will bring.�

local university where she studied English and French. During her fourth year, one of her professors invited a visiting American employee of the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency, who was working on a local air and water quality cleanup project, to address her class. It was Vashon Islander Ken Marcy. “There were 14 girls in the class, but he asked me for a date,� Maria recalls, smiling. “He was there for nine months. At the end, he invited me to Vashon. He was renting a cabin off Pohl Road on the south end with a gorgeous view of Mount Rainier and the Tahlequah ferry. He proposed and I said, ‘yes.’� That was 1997. The couple now has a 10-year-old son, Dmitry. Thankfully for her language-challenged American friends, Maria took her husband’s last name, Marcy, leaving her full maiden name — Maria Anatolyevna Bezhentseva — to family history. These days, Maria maintains her Old Country ties by representing several Russian artists from the Ural Mountain region through her company, Shambala Studio.

Samantha was born in 2010 and she grew up to be a beautiful girl. Samantha is great with adults but she is not sure around young children which is why she was relinquished to VIPP. Samantha would do best in a home with older kids or adults. At the shelter, Samantha gets along with her bunk mates but she likes to hang out in her kennel where she can roll around in catnip and have time to herself. She would prefer to be the main attraction in her new home.

Arti, Born in 2003, is the belle of the ball type cat who is always dressed to the nines in her fabulous torti fur. She can be playful but mostly Arti likes to luxuriate in a sunbeam. Arti is used to sharing her domain with other cats and dogs. She is a love bug who enjoys being petted but is independent enough to entertain herself. This girl has it all!

Charlie is a 9 month old, neutered, Spaniel Mix love bug. He is healthy, house trained, has his puppy shots, knows “sit� and is working on other training. Charlie is 60 lbs and still growing, needs lots of exercise, and a fenced yard. He gets along with dogs, cats, and children (except he would like to eat the chickens). Charlie needs a dedicated new owner to teach him manners, to be gentle with young children, and to give him the love he deserves. Call 389-1085 for more info.
