New board takes over Mukai farmhouse Island group worked behind the scenes to oust former board

By LESLIE BROWN Staff Writer

A new board of directors comprised entirely of Islanders has taken over the organization that owns the Mukai farmhouse and garden, considered one of the most historically significant Japanese-American properties in the country. The board was quietly elected at a membership meeting last week, after three Islanders — Glenda Pearson, Ellen Kritzman and Lynn Greiner — worked behind the scenes for months to find a way to replace an absentee board that they say has failed to safeguard the historic site. As a result, Island Landmarks, the organization that holds title to Mukai, is no longer helmed by Mary Matthews, a former Islander who founded the group and who now lives in Texas. Four other board members, including Matthews’ husband and another out-of-state resident, were also removed from the board. In their place is a new 11-member board made up of several well-known Islanders, many of whom have been actively involved in Vashon nonprofits over the years. Pearson, a University of Washington librarian, was elected

Vashon’s grads mark their big day The Vashon High School gym on Saturday was packed tight and full of smiles, laughs and tears as family and friends gathered to celebrate the graduation of the VHS class of 2012. Highlights included a humorous speech by senior Sam Crosby, who was elected by his classmates to speak. Valedictorian Zoe Ferguson-Steele also gave a heartfelt speech about looking to the future and later sang with classmate Anna Hicks to a standing ovation. Special notice was taken of staff members who are retiring this year, including teachers Cindy Powell and Mike Zecher. In a crowdrousing moment, the two, who addressed the graduates together, donned their own graduation gowns and threw their caps in the air.

fulfilled — a vision that Matthews articulated several years ago but was never able to realize. The Mukai farmhouse, built by B.D. Mukai in 1928, and the traditional Japanese garden, designed by his wife Kuni, were purchased by Island Landmarks a decade ago with $400,000 in public grants. Island Landmarks, according to the three women who led the effort to replace its board, has failed to

care for the property or open it to the public, as promised in various grant applications. The organization is behind on its property taxes. It is no longer a nonprofit, a status that was revoked by the IRS for its failure to make annual reports. And the farmhouse is in a state of disrepair, the women said. “I’m encouraged that we are SEE MUKAI, 22

K2 Commons, a proposed development that would turn the former ski manufacturing plant into a center with a swimming pool, bowling alley, restaurant and hotel, is in the process of becoming a nonprofit helmed by a board of well-known Islanders. The vision remains similar to the one Dick Sontgerath and Truman O’Brien articulated six years ago, when they first announced plans to purchase the 180,000-square-foot structure and turn it into a mixed-use facility. But instead of trying to make the ambitious effort pencil out as a for-profit enterprise, the project is now organized as a nonprofit — one that could be backed by social investors and foundations and with rental proceeds used to support other Vashon agencies, board members said. Sontgerath, reached Monday night, declined to comment about the project, referring questions to Nancy Foster-Moss, K2 Commons’ project director. Foster-Moss could not be reached. Five board members, however, spoke enthusiastically and easily about the project — calling it audacious, progressive, challenging and exciting. “The change to a nonprofit tipped me over,” said Bernie O’Malley, one of seven board members. When Sontgerath and O’Brien first put forward their vision, some Islanders objected, assuming, O’Malley said, that the project was in the hands of “a developer who would make a ton of money. It didn’t matter if it was true or not; that’s what people thought.” But with a nonprofit model, O’Malley said, the project just SEE K2 COMMONS, 11

King County is making plans to transform a stretch of shoreline at Dockton, removing a bulkhead that has been in place for decades and creating an ecologically important salt marsh. A two-week comment period for the project, which is required by law, begins today, and tours of the site will be offered tomorrow evening. “I am very excited about it,� said Greg Rabourn, Vashon’s basin steward who is heading the project and will help lead the tours. “It’s great to see progress being made, and here’s a chance for us to do another little piece of saving Puget Sound.� Funds for the $480,000 project came from a settlement with ConocoPhillips, after a 2004 oil spill in Dalco Passage, near the harbor, that fouled hundreds of acres of shoreline. The county chose the project from a few proposed restoration projects to be completed on the south end of Vashon. “Because the oil spill damaged publicly owned resources, the money can be used for restoring publicly owned resources,� Rabourn said. “We’re restoring some important shoreline habitat.� The 375 feet of county-owned shoreline by Dockton Park was historically the site of a lumber mill, Rabourn said. The bulkhead has been rebuilt over time, and creosote pilings are also left behind. Salt marshes, once common in the region, are now rare, Rabourn said. The tidally influenced marshes, home to saltwater tolerant plants, provide important habitat for forage fish, salmon, insects, birds and other shoreline creatures.

The county believes a salt marsh, or at least a saltwater estuary, once existed at the low, flat beach at Dockton. Once the county removes the pilings and bulkhead, Rabourn said, a saltwater inlet will be created and native plants installed. The beach will again begin to naturally replenish itself and collect driftwood for animal habitat. The project is especially important, Rabourn said, considering that so much of the county’s shoreline has been bulkheaded and altered. “It’s a really great opportunity to try to create this rare habitat,� Rabourn said. “It’s quite special.� Tom Dean, director of the VashonMaury Island Land Trust, said he remembers the oil spill in Dalco Passage. And though the damage from the spill can’t be undone, he said, he is glad to see the settlement funds put to good use. “I love to see this stuff happen. It gets to my roots in conservation work,� he said. Dean said the loss of salt marshes throughout the region has contributed to the decline in salmon populations. Even in Quartermaster, the new marsh will be a step in the right direction. “It’s not going to have a huge effect on water quality, but it’s going to be great fish habitat, and that’s one thing we’re lacking in all of Puget Sound, and especially Central Puget Sound,� he said.

Police hold community meeting on sex offender, subject arrested same night By NATALIE JOHNSON Staff Reporter

A detective with the county sheriff ’s registered sex offender unit urged Islanders last week to be aware but not afraid of a Level 3 sex offender who recently moved to Vashon. “More importantly, know the people who are supervising your children,â€? said Det. Michael Luchau at a Thursday meeting at Chautauqua Elementary School. “Most sex offenses are by people we know and we thought we could trust. ‌ Stranger assaults are rare.â€? At the meeting, attended by about 60 people, Luchau answered questions about Tracy Nathaniel Morgan, 46, who moved to Vashon late last year after being released from a 10-year

prison sentence for manslaughter. A community meeting is required by law whenever a Level 3 offender — considered most likely to reoffend — moves to a new place. Morgan, who now lives with a family member on the west side of the Island, was convicted of second-degree rape and second-degree assault in 1984, when he sexually assaulted and beat a 12-year-old boy in Benton County, according to court records. He was released from prison in 1994. Luchau and Lindsay Palmer, with the county’s sexual assault resource center, also gave advice on talking to children about sexual predators and warning signs to look for in adults. Sean Raybell, a state community corrections officer

Tracy Morgan who is currently supervising Morgan, was also on hand to answer questions. Raybell said the state, which is monitoring Morgan only for his most recent crime, considers Morgan to be a low risk to the community. He said Morgan is living with family, is employed intermittently and looking for steady work and recently completed a chemical dependency program — all factors that make him less likely to reoffend. “He’s doing pretty well,� Raybell said. And while Morgan is not allowed to drink alcohol, use drugs or be in a bar, he has no restrictions when it comes to being near children, Raybell said. “Right now it’s not a condition for him to not have contact with minors,� he

New Museum Hours

said. “If I see him with a beer, he’s going to jail,� he later added. In an unexpected turn of events, Morgan was arrested that evening after he was discovered sitting at the Village Green drinking alcohol — a violation of his probation — during the meeting. Sgt. Cindi West, a spokeswoman for the sheriff’s office, said Morgan was found drinking underneath the shelter at the park. She noted that it’s also illegal to have an open container of alcohol at the park. As of Monday, Morgan was still being held in the King County jail. He was also jailed for 10 days earlier this year, again for a probation violation. Luchau, who was notified of his arrest during the meeting and shared the information with the audience, said Morgan “might be (in jail) for a little while.� According to a 1984 article in the Tri-City Herald, Morgan, a Vashon resident at the time, attacked, robbed and threatened to kill two boys, whom the newspaper said were 11, that he met at a Kennewick schoolyard. He then sexually attacked one of them. The article said the crime was called “very sadistic� by a Benton County Superior Court judge. According to Vashon School District records, Morgan was a Vashon student from 1971, when

he started kindergarten, through spring of 1981, when he left school partway through his freshman year of high school. Morgan was convicted of first-degree manslaughter in 2001, when he was homeless and living in West Seattle. According to King County court records, Morgan admitted to killing a 47-year-old homeless man at Lincoln Park in 2000. According to court documents, Morgan bludgeoned the man to death with a hammer after being involved in a fight with him and hid the body in bushes at the park. He has also been convicted of multiple adult misdemeanors. Some at Thursday’s meeting said they were surprised that the county, in its notification about Morgan, didn’t disclose his more recent manslaughter conviction. “When I found that out later, it made it seem much more worse,� said one woman. “I felt that the notice was not complete. ... It seems like a much more serious thing to have in my neighborhood.� Luchau said that only convicted sex offenders are required by law to register with the county; the state doesn’t disclose offenders’ other crimes in its notices. Other states, he noted, keep registries for those convicted of violent crimes. “We don’t know how many murderers or people

who have been convicted of manslaughter are on the Island,� Luchau said. “We only know of this one because he’s a registered sex offender.� Other reactions to Morgan’s presence on the Island were mixed. Some questioned whether they should post Morgan’s photo around town or show it to their children. One woman pointed out that Morgan’s sex offense occurred nearly three decades ago and no re-offenses are known of. Another woman suggested that his more recent crime, against someone he knew, makes him seem even more dangerous. “He has covered a lot of ground with his crimes,� she said. Others expressed concern that Morgan has lived on the Island since late last year, yet Islanders were only recently notified of his presence. Luchau explained that the county didn’t perform a risk assessment on Morgan until he was released from prison last year. Once the county determined him to be a Level 3 offender, notifications were sent out. The risk assessment, Luchau said, involves extensive research and simply takes time, especially considering the department’s budget constraints. He said it took him months to complete an assessment “because of all the hurdles I have.�

Emergency drill shows a marine lifeline could be established for Vashon By LESLIE BROWN Staff Writer

Vashon’s emergency preparedness experts learned Wednesday what they weren’t sure of before: Should the ferry system go down in an earthquake, King County’s water taxi could be called into service, picking up critically injured people from key Island locations. Six counties, including King, held a regional, two-day drill last week to determine the region’s capacity to respond to a major tremor. Called “Evergreen Quake 2012,� the drill was in response to a hypothetical that organizers said would never happen but that gave several jurisdictions a chance to test their emergency response mettle — five near-simultaneous earthquakes along major Puget Sound faults. The drill involved not only the six counties, but the state, 20 cities, several tribes and several private-sector partners. On Vashon, the drill assumed a shallow 7.1 magnitude quake along the Tacoma Fault, which runs straight across Vashon — an eventuality that Vashon Fire Chief Hank Lipe said would create “a humanitarian crisis� on the Island. In such a scenario, according to Rick Wallace, who served as the head of Vashon’s Emergency Operations Center for the exercise, both ferry docks would sustain major damage, spelling a temporary halt to ferry traffic and leading to a major food and water crisis within four to five days.

From left, Vashon Island Fire & Rescue staff Brett Kranjcevich, Joe Wolf and George Brown ease Paul Clendenen, a crew member of the Melissa Ann, onto the water taxi while Island videographer James Culbertson, left, and Brian Starr with King County TV film the drill. So as part of the drill — and in a first for the region’s preparedness community — Vashon and King County partnered on what they called Operation Lifeline, employing the county’s water taxi and privately owned barges in an effort to establish a transportation link between what would become an isolated island and the mainland. On Wednesday, they played out the scenario: The Melissa Ann, a 77-foot catamaran that normally ferries pedestrians from Vashon to downtown Seattle, nosed up to the Tramp Harbor Pier, closed in on Point Robinson and then

docked at the marina at Dockton, where it took on a passenger who was strapped to a backboard. Wallace called the test a milestone in the region’s preparedness effort. “For years, we’ve worried about what would happen if the Island were isolated,� he said a few days before the drill. “The huge breakthrough — and what makes this different from Sound Shake 2010 (the last major drill) — is that we’re actually going to do it.� The goal, he and others said, was to determine whether the Melissa Ann could sidle up to the

Tramp Harbor Pier, if it could get close enough to the beach at Point Robinson to take on passengers and how easily it would be to load and off-load at Dockton. At all three locations, officials said, they discovered that the catamaran could provide needed help. “This is really a success for us. It has put what we had on paper into reality and given everyone a good check,� said Ron Panzero, operations and maintenance manager for the county’s marine division, as he stood on the Dockton pier where the Melissa Ann was moored. “We drill constantly,� he added. “This for us is one more tool in the toolbox for Vashon Island.� Dan Krehbiel, captain of the Melissa Ann, said the exercise gave his crew a chance to test their judgment in some new and tricky scenarios. He opted not to make contact at Tramp Harbor because it would have scraped the boat, causing some cosmetic damage. But he determined that the boat could reach the pier in an emergency, he said. And at Dockton, he said, he found it was possible to dock the boat. “It’s a small, tender dock and a big, heavy boat,� he said after the Melissa Ann was safely tied to the pier. “It was easy. But you have to be ginger.� A team that included several firefighters from Vashon Island Fire & Rescue (VIFR) also practiced a scenario, loading a man strapped on

to a backboard and into the Melissa Ann. In the process, they found that the gurneys used to transfer an injured person into a vehicle are tall enough to get victims into the Melissa Ann and that the boat could accommodate about 20 gurneys and 30 backboards. “You never know if it’s going to work,� said Brett Kranjcevich, a volunteer assistant fire chief with VIFR. “These are questions we’ve wanted to answer for quite some time. We did it, and it worked quite well.� At a debriefing Wednesday afternoon, several key players noted elements of the exercise that were difficult. Because the tide was so low, for instance, the ramp to the pier where the Melissa Ann was moored was dangerously steep, making it hard to get a person on a gurney down the ramp, Mark Nassutti, one of the volunteers, noted. Others in the extensive drill encountered other difficulties — how to effectively get out public bulletins, for instance, or the lack of timely responses from the county about a pressing issue. But the group also said their ability to handle curve balls thrown at them was considerably greater this time around, and Wallace and Lipe were pleased by what the marine drill demonstrated. “It was a historic day,� Lipe said. “The cooperation of the King County Ferry District was huge.�

Island theater must last long into the future

A remarkable effort leads to a new chapter for Mukai

Vashon Theatre is one of those enduring, treasured Island institutions, without which Vashon just wouldn’t be Vashon. Since 1947, it’s been a great place for us to get out of the rain for a couple of hours, see our neighbors and be mesmerized by those hallucinogenic murals. And yet it now faces a challenge that must be met, or its very existence may be threatened. To keep its screen from going dark, the theater must entirely change its projection system so that it can screen movies in the new, digital format to which all the major studios — Warner Brothers, Disney and all the rest — have converted. Finding a way to acquire and install this tremendously expensive new equipment is the challenge that owners Eileen Wolcott and her husband Gordon must meet, an expense that would be very difficult to undertake. From the beginning of their ownership in 2003, the Wolcotts have been committed to improving quality in every phase of their business. Eileen booked newly released, first-run films, instead of the months-old movies that had been standard fare. The juryrigged old projector was replaced. A new, high quality sound system was installed. The old, Depressionera seats, sticky to the touch, were replaced. Thousands of Jujubes were scraped from the floor. The stucco exterior was rehabilitated and painted. Most importantly, Vashon Theatre started making the best popcorn in the state. Eileen’s passion for the old theater is palpable. She sees herself as the steward of one of Vashon’s cultural centers and has engaged the community in many ways, hosting concerts, birthday parties and political functions. Her instinct is to continually improve her property, but single-screen theaters have

The Mukai farmhouse sits just west of town at the end of a short street that butts up against Island Center Forest. It’s a serene and lovely place — at once both modest and gracious. But despite the efforts of its caretaker, next-door neighbor Ken DeFrang, this historic site — listed on the National Register of Historic Places and purchased entirely with public funds — is in a state of disrepair. The lawn is mowed and the edging trimmed. But the house shows serious signs of neglect: peeling paint, a front-door awning that’s beginning to rot, leaks in the roof. Now, after years of persistence by a small group of Islanders who cherish this place, the Mukai farmhouse stands to get the protection and attention it deserves. Why does the house hold a spot in so many Islanders’ hearts? Yvonne Kuperberg, one of the members of the newly installed board overseeing the property, put it well. Many of us feel heartsick about that stain in U.S. history, when tens of thousands of Americans were banished to camps, their only crime an ancestry they shared with the Mukai farmhouse United States’ enemy nation at the time. To care for this house, built by a Japanese-American who nearly lost it when he and his family moved to Idaho in the midst of World War II, Kuperberg said the other night as she stood before it, is a way to give back. The house is only part of its story. A traditional Japanese garden built by Mukai’s wife Kuni dominates the front half of the property. Next door is the false-fronted barreling plant, so full of Western character it looks like something Hollywood might have constructed. Close your eyes, and you can picture the strawberry fields that once stretched for acres around it — property B.D. Mukai, a hard-working Japanese-American, tended and transformed into a thriving farm and business. Enter this small group of Islanders, many of whom have worked for years to try to see the property both safeguarded and opened to the community. They’re on the threshold of success after a carefully orchestrated takeover of the dormant board, a coup accomplished by way of a strategic adherence to the organization’s bylaws. It’s a remarkable turn of events. But the saga’s not over. It’s possible former board president Mary Matthews and her husband J. Nelson Happy will fight to maintain control of Island Landmarks, the organization Matthews founded and that initially secured the site. Next Monday evening, the new board is holding an open house to give Island residents a chance to see this community treasure in our midst. Now, it’s our turn. We hope Islanders attend in droves, join Island Landmarks, support this brave, new board and, like them, pledge to give back.

munity will own the equipment, through GreenTech, and it will be leased to Vashon Theatre for a nominal yearly fee. This unusual partnership of for-profit and nonprofit businesses is necessary, and on Vashon, it makes sense. With Eileen’s blessing and cooperation, GreenTech has launched an effort to raise $100,000 to purchase and install the projection equipment in Vashon Theatre and ensure its future viability. The projector alone costs nearly $60,000, and because many other theater owners find themselves in a similar position, the projectors are much in demand. The supplier requires a 50 percent deposit to enter the queue to buy the gear, and, unless we order very soon, Vashon Theatre may indeed go dark for a time. The first phase of GreenTech’s fundraising goal is to raise $30,000 in four weeks, so that Eileen’s order will be at the top of the list. For this, they will need the help of everyone on Vashon who loves our theater. If we do nothing to help Eileen, it’s possible we will not have a movie theater on Vashon Island. That would be an unacceptable outcome in my world, and I suspect, and hope, in the worlds of many other Vashon residents. Eileen Wolcott actually owns Vashon Theatre, but it is our theater — it belongs to everyone on Vashon. We must do whatever is necessary to ensure that this essential, irreplaceable Island business is here long into the future.

difficulty generating enough income to make many capital improvements, particularly in a town with a limited population. The Wolcotts have plunged ahead anyway, repairing broken systems and buying new gear when it was necessary. They believed that eventually their efforts would pay off if they could provide a viewing experience at Vashon Theatre equal to any movie theater in the city. In fact, seeing a movie on Vashon is a lot better than seeing a film in town. You can leave your house 10 minutes before the movie starts and be home two hours later. Seeing a film in Seattle or Tacoma requires five hours or so, ferry fare and higher prices for admission and treats. At Vashon Theatre, you’ll have the pleasure of chatting about the film with your friends and neighbors as you walk out. You probably know by now that GreenTech, a Vashon nonprofit, approached Eileen, offering to help her find a solution when members heard rumblings of the challenges she faced. GreenTech’s mission is to act as a catalyst for local businesses, helping them assess their situation and providing advice to help them succeed. Board members felt that without the intervention of GreenTech, the theater would be unable to acquire the equipment needed to survive. The GreenTech board proposed conducting a fundraiser to buy the equipment for Vashon Theatre with the proceeds. The com-

and meaningful public discussion about the project. An impression has been created that nothing short of scrapping the project would address the concerns that have been expressed. While I am convinced alternatives exist, I’ve been told there is no feasible means of achieving anything close to the project goals if the design is changed; I’ve also been told that technical input from historic preservation experts has been incorporated into the design. I do not find this to be the case and fear some proponents have missed the point of review that involves substantive comment. It is to end up with a better project. Based on available information, the existing design appears out of touch with its surroundings and historic context. This project has a very real potential for significant adverse impacts that may be avoidable. My hope is this can be corrected through a fresh look at the design, starting with comments from historic preservation professionals and others who appreciate the importance of vernacular architecture and understand the environmental conditions that make this site a challenge. I also hope there will be a more receptive environment for those who have concerns about the design to voice them.

It would be ironic if VAA, the oldest nonprofit arts organization in the state and owner of a historic landmark connected to the proposal, did not embrace a more rigorous design review process and greater sensitivity to historic resources than is evident. — Laurie Geissinger

Designs should not have been withheld I am saddened and deeply troubled by some recent events in our community. Vashon was fortunate to have some fresh minds present to us some ideas about ways to enhance the architecture of our community. (“Storefront Studio project wraps up with lots of ideas for Vashon,� June 6.) How did we thank them? Most of us were truly interested and appreciative. Some were not and seemed to feel that it was up to them to censor these ideas from the rest of us. I find this attitude and behavior very small-minded and dangerous. One of the most important things about our society has been the freedom of expression we enjoy and benefit from. This is especially important in the arts community, which has a long history as a victim of censorship and

oppression. Nobody has to like all ideas, but we should all embrace and protect the right to express these ideas. If we disagree, then we should speak out, but never should we restrict or oppress the healthy flow of ideas and opinions. I must add that I was equally disappointed in Professor Jim Nicholl’s response to Vashon Allied Arts’ objections. Fear of controversy should never stand in the way of doing the right thing. The lessons learned by his students from this experience can only make those students more fearful and hesitant to express themselves. History teaches us that just around the corner from fear lies repression and fascism. — Jim Garrison

Structure would dwarf the corner I am a musician that lives on Vashon and I have performed at many of the fine venues that the Island has to offer, including the Blue Heron. I also perform at festivals and concert halls all across our nation. I can understand the desire for a new and plush hall for showcasing the homegrown and imported artists who all deserve a nice stage for their talents and audiences

who deserve a comfortable place to enjoy their talents. I am, however, concerned that the planned VAA hall is inappropriate for its location. The hall itself, at 45 to 47 feet tall and more than 260 feet long, would dwarf the corner. The building and parking requirements need variances on all sides to be considered legal. The parking requirement for 170 cars itself seems prohibitive considering that the front parking lot for the Island Lumber, as big as it is, only holds 75 cars. I can’t help but question the decision to place a structure with this kind of impact at this location. — Mark Graham

It’s McFeeds that does not fit in After reading yet another round of letters to the editor about the new VAA building, many of them about the importance of the center Island intersection and how concerns that the new VAA building should fit in with the style of the other existing buildings, I thought to myself, am I the only one who notices that the old McFeeds building does not and never has fit in with the style of the old Fuller Store, Minglement or the

Blue Heron building? I’m puzzled about the reasoning of this train of thought. Why is it that the McFeeds building can sit there with an architectural style that has not fit in since 1927, but now all of a sudden the new VAA must fit in with the existing buildings? I used to think of Vashon as a place where people pulled together for the good of the Island, but lately I’m not so sure. One person mentioned the new VAA building might stand in the way of future bike lanes. Really? I might be wrong, but I think the other buildings at the intersection are too close for that to happen anyway. I’ve lived on the Island for 32 years, and I can’t say I always read The Beachcomber, so maybe that’s why I have such a rose-colored view of the Island. Maybe I just never noticed all the infighting and bickering. I don’t have a personal interest in the VAA building. I don’t sing or dance or paint or act, but I like living on an island where people do, and I like the idea of them having a really nice, big place where they can do it. So I hope the new VAA building can continue and replace the old Mcfeeds building, which I think has run it course. — Natalie Winters

VHS Track

New track would benefit many It seems the news is often the same story with a different spin. Last week the editorial about the pathetic state of the high school track is the latest plea to

have something done about this situation. At a time when the feeling is “everyone wins,� why is it our track athletes are losing? I do not mean losing at meets either. I mean that as a less popular sport than football, soccer, baseball or lacrosse, these kids have totally lost in efforts to have a decent track constructed upon which they can practice and hold meets. Considering that obesity rates in children have risen dramatically over the past few years, we should be encouraging and helping these kids, not ignoring them. Hundreds of thousands of dollars have been spent by the schools and the Vashon Park District on fields for virtually every other sport. Track and cross-country athletes can continue to run for the rest of their lives to help them stay fit and healthy. How many team sport players carry on with their sports for a lifetime? Had coaches Russ Brazil and Kevin Ross not encouraged our slightly overweight, not athletically inclined son to turn out for track and cross country over 12 years ago, he could very well be an overweight adult now. Instead he competes in marathons and triathlons, while running almost daily with or without companions. A better track would be beneficial to the community as a whole, too. My physical therapist recommended walking at the track after knee surgery, and many other adults like to use the track when it is not a soggy mess. So let us be the progressively thinking community we like to think we are and support the building of a decent track for our kids. — Scott Harvey

Wolftown thanks neighbors Thank you, my good neighbors, for putting up with a lot o’ chainsawing. As everyone probably now knows, our federal permits required removal of trees that were falling on our perimeter and primary fence lines. Wolftown is a USDA-permited facility, and our federal inspectors come out every six months; this was a requirement.

Are you considering selling your home this year? I would love to chat with you about your home and your goals in selling. And how my full service listing package can help you sell your home. – Susan

The trees were made into planks or cut into firewood. The firewood was sold to pay for about half of the cost of hiring our crew. The rest is being donated to folks in need where firewood is their only source of heat. (We took money out of our small savings to pay the rest.) Most of the folks hired were from Tree Works Work Release program and they donated half their time! Thanks, guys! The trees were the scattered ones on the 2.5 acres. The other five acres owned by the foundation were not touched. We will be planting trees in a safe way to replace those cut. Rehab is going strong, and we want to thank all our volunteers for helping with seal sitting, baby bird raising, transport and general work. Also a big thank you to Thriftway and our host families. Remember Wolftown, folks, and thank you all! And we’re on Facebook. T and Pete Yamamoto, Wolftown!

True Scholarship: Vashon High School senior Iris Spring, right, was recently awarded a $2,000 scholarship from the Marilyn Omey Scholarship Fund. Omey, who died in 2008, was a community activist on Vashon. A scholarship for VHS debate team members was established in her name with money donated by her family as well as money raised by those who knew her. This is the last year the scholarship will be given. Board members noted they were extremely impressed with Spring’s application and essay. Spring, who also wrestles and plays the violin, will finish her associate’s degree this summer, and in the fall she will study music education and anthropology at Western Washington University. After that she plans to complete a master’s degree program through the Peace Corps. Pictured with Spring are scholarship fund board members Hilary Emmer, Vickie Mercer and David Hinchman.

The Rotary decided to hold the event earlier this year, according to member Gary Sipple, opting to craft a new fundraiser it hoped would resonate with people. “It’s been my experience in attending auctions that vacation offerings were generally the most popular items,� Sipple said. A procurement committee assembled a variety of trips, all of which will be avail-

able to bid on at the auction — and before, for those who cannot attend the event. The vacations include an African safari, a week’s stay in a French village and three resort packages to Hawaii as well as several one-day events, such as train rides, golf packages and event tickets. All the packages were donated, Sipple noted, many by Rotarians. Descriptions of the packages, and their costs, are all available online at www.2012-vacationbonanza.com. People can bid online if they wish, whether or not they plan to attend the auction. The event, a buffet dinner, will begin at 6 p.m. Saturday at the Vashon Golf & Swim Club. Tickets are $45 per person. For more information, email info@2012vacationbonanza.com.

Artwork helps to make a garden tour grow By ELIZABETH SHEPHERD Arts Editor

N

ext weekend, Vashon Allied Arts will present its 22nd annual Garden Tour — a two-day fundraiser for VAA that celebrates all things landscaped. But during the event, the five private gardens open to tour-goers will be filled not only with green, leafy and flowering things, but also with Island-made art. According to Janice Randall, director of communications at VAA, it’s one more way for the organization to support local artists. “This is another opportunity for artists to exhibit and sell their works,� she said. This year, works by nine artists will grace the gardens. Gregory Burnham’s bamboo screens and Steve Zartman’s metal sculpture will be displayed in Sylvia Soholt’s garden — a place described in Garden Tour materials as “a healing garden infused with quiet energy in three seasons that becomes vibrant in summer.� Soholt’s garden also features a metal sculpture by Mike Urban, a functioning swing shaped like a leaf by Spanish designer Veronica Martinez and a pergola designed and constructed by Kris and Ray Gibbs. Whit and Mary Carhart’s lush Northweststyle garden, covering much of a 20-acre spread on Quartermaster Harbor, will show off Clare Dohna’s tiled creatures and a metal sculpture by David Erue during the tour. Sculptures by Julie Speidel and Dominic Benhura permanently accent the landscape. A garden belonging to Bruce Fillinger and Barry Foster — a place with both cultivated year-round gardens and natural landscapes — will provide a backdrop for Brian Brenno’s cut can metal sculpture and Jim Chobot’s furniture. The garden also features other colorful attractions, such as whimsical birdhouses and what is described in garden tour materials as a “chicken museum/palace.� Dean Hanmer’s large cement humanoids and Barbara Wells’ bronze and glass works will be displayed in Todd and Mary Margaret Pearson’s garden — a tucked-away 10-acre spread described by Randall as “low maintenance, owner maintained and mostly deerfriendly.� Another garden, belonging to David

The Garden Tour begins with a Sunset Garden Gala at 6 p.m. Friday, June 22, in a private garden. Tickets are $125, call 4635131 to reserve. Tickets to the tour, slated for Saturday and Sunday, June 23 and 24, are $25. For more information or to purchase tickets, visit www.vashonalliedarts.org.

The night will include music, theater and more. The benefit will raise money for IsleWilde, a homegrown organization that is celebrating its 20th anniversary this year. Islewilde produces a community festival each summer that brings a blend of puppetry, pageantry and old-fashioned family fun to Vashon. The musical lineup for the evening includes bluesman John Browne, the duo of Andre Sapp and Noah Dolan, Rob Strausser, Iris Spring and Greg Martin. Other performers will include clown Steve Lipke, Patrick McManus, Janessa Hope-Wight, Cathy DeSmet, Catherine Daves and Kathy Zbryk.

one-of-a-kind ewers are currently on view at locations all over town, including Heron’s Nest, The Hardware Store Restaurant and Island Home Center & Lumber. According to Randall, this year’s Garden Tour emphasizes art more than any previous one — a reflection of a growing trend by gardeners to embellish their gardens with all kinds of artworks. “Garden art has really come into its own,� she said. “Why limit art to the inside of our houses?�

A donation of $10 will get adults into the show; admission is free for kids 18 and younger.

lenging. The building, situated on 18 acres, is for sale for $1.5 million, a modest fee for such a large building on a prime piece of property, some have said. But development costs would be high; according to some board members, Sontgerath has said it could take $40 million to realize his plan for the site. “I think Dick’s vision for it is really exciting,â€? said Jim Diers, another board member and a leading figure in community development. He helmed Seattle’s Department of Neighborhoods for 14 years before moving to Vashon. “I think it’s going to be really tough to get there. It’s a huge project. ‌ But I think it’s worth putting a little time into, because if it could happen, it would be totally awesome.â€? Ken Maaz, the head of Vashon Youth & Family

might garner “broad community support.� “It’s really the way to go,� he said of the nonprofit model. Patti McClements, another board member and a veteran of Vashon boards, said she, too, found Sontgerath’s vision compelling. “When Dick called me to talk to me about his intentions and plans for that space, it gave me chills,� said McClements, who runs Puget Sound Energy’s community service center and is the current president of the Vashon Chamber of Commerce board. “It just seemed like such an amazing opportunity for the Vashon community that I knew I had to be part of it.� But board members also noted that the plan is chal-

Services and another board member, concurred. “I think it’s a big project. I think it’s ambitious. But I think it has great potential for the community,� he said. A site plan for the project on K2 Commons’ website shows a development similar to the one Sontgerath and O’Brien put forward in 2007. Towering bays along the south side of the building would provide space for artists and businesses. An athletic club with a swimming pool would be in the center of the sprawling complex, next to tennis courts and a bowling alley. A hotel, spa, community kitchen and school are also penciled in. In the plan’s earlier incarnation, a separate 10,000-square-foot building on the northeast corner of the lot — K2’s former machine shop — was slated to become the site

for Vashon’s branch library. According to the plan on K2 Commons’ website, that free-standing building would instead become a health center. According to Art Wahl, the commercial broker for the property, six of the 18 acres comprise a separate lot and could be sold to the Vashon Maury Community Food Bank, which has expressed interest in the land. The project has changed in some other ways, too. O’Brien is no longer a partner in the enterprise; instead, he said, he’s on the board. Foster-Moss, meanwhile, has stepped in as the second in command. According to the website, she has considerable background in Vashon’s nonprofit sector, as well as 15 years of experience as a designer and product developer for Eddie Bauer and other clients.

Should the project prove successful, proceeds would support VYFS, Vashon’s schools and health care services for low-income Islanders, Maaz said. “This is very intriguing,� he said. “It’s intriguing to have an entrepreneurial effort like that help human services.�

County raises questions about VAA’s proposed performance hall But VAA’s project manager says the issues can easily be resolved

By LESLIE BROWN

Staff Writer

The King County agency that issues building permits has raised several questions about the scale of Vashon Allied Arts’ proposed performing arts center, suggesting the building may be taller than code allows and the amount of parking VAA has proposed is inadequate. The Department of Development and Environmental Services (DDES), in a letter sent to VAA on May 22, called on the arts organization to revise its plans and reduce the

building’s height and to find a way to add 70 spaces to its plan for 100 parking spots. The letter also notes that planners in the county’s historic preservation office have raised concerns about the project. “It may be that significant site issues will affect your site layout and development, causing a redesign of the Vashon Allied Arts’ project,� according to the letter, signed by Dave Sandstrom, a program manager at DDES. But Kirk Robinson, VAA’s Seattle-based project manager and a veteran of the permit application process, said the questions raised by DDES are typical of a large project at this stage in the process. He feels confident, he added, that he and the architects will be able to address DDES’s concerns. “We’re moving through this,� he said. “We’ll take care of

all of their questions. This all relates to ‌ technical items under the building permit application process.â€? The four-page letter sent to VAA comes in the midst of a public review process. Under the state’s environmental policy law, residents have a period of 21 days to comment on a project undergoing an environmental review. DDES extended the comment period until June 20 — all told, 35 days — because of the difficulty Islanders faced in getting to Renton to review the weighty files. Already, several have weighed in on the project, a 20,000-square-foot structure proposed for Center — the intersection of Cemetery Road and Vashon Highway. Both Sen. Sharon Nelson (D-Maury Island) and Councilman Joe McDermott, who represents Vashon on the King County Council, have voiced support for the project. So have several Islanders, including Vashon Park District Commissioner David Hackett, Peter Mantle and the Vashon Island Chorale. “I like the public nature it brings to Center and feel that it revives a fading corner, offering the possibility of restoring the vitality, particularly the economic and community vitality, it has had in the past,â€? Nelson wrote in her onepage letter. Charlie Sundberg, meanwhile, a planner for the county’s historic preservation program, wrote a seven-page letter outlining his concerns about the project, saying he believes the size and scale of the project are too much for the corner, one of the county’s most historically intact intersections. “In its current form, it would destroy historic buildings, be out of scale with those that remain and overall have a detrimental impact on the historic character of Center,â€? Sundberg wrote. Several Islanders have also noted concerns, including former School Board Member Donna Klemka, who wrote an eight-page letter to DDES, artist Saphire Blue, Michael Tracy and John Jex. DDES officials, meanwhile, say VAA has two months to respond to the issues they raised in the May 22 letter. Of particular note is the height of the building, which DDES says is 45 to 47 feet from finished grade to rooftop — or 10 to 12 feet above what the zoning laws allow for a rural area. Robinson said DDES is incorrect. The code allows for an additional foot of vertical height for each foot that the building is set back from the property line, and Robinson said the project is set back far enough from the road to give it several additional feet in height. “We’ve shown them and will show them again that we’re allowed to build to the height that we’ve proposed,â€? Robinson said. But James Chan, assistant director of permitting for DDES, said VAA has yet to prove to his department that the project is within the bounds of the zoning laws. “Their setback doesn’t balance with the height of the building,â€? he said. 4503:$0/5*/6&4 /&951"(&

Asked if it was unusual for a project to come in out of compliance with zoning laws, Chan said it’s been known to happen. “But considering who they’re using as their architect, they should have known this,� he said. The building’s designer, LMN Architects in Seattle, is a nationally known firm that has designed several performance centers, including Benaroya Hall in Seattle. As for parking, DDES said VAA’s plans for 100 parking spots is the minimum number the project requires. Because of the size of the performance center, which includes a 300-seat theater, the project needs to provide 170 parking spots, the DDES letter says. Robinson said the project’s traffic engineers disagree that 170 spots are needed. On those nights when the theater is at

capacity, patrons will park on the street, as they often do now for VAA performances, Robinson said — a parking plan he believes is allowable under county rules. “That’s our interpretation of the code,� he said. “We’re currently parking people on the street right now.� But Chan disagreed, saying, “I haven’t seen anyone allowed to use shoulder parking as part of their parking plan.� Rather, he said, he believes VAA will either have to find additional parking “or change the occupancy of their structure.� Meanwhile, documents VAA submitted to DDES show the organization expects to have far more at-capacity performances than it suggested when it applied for a certificate of water availability from Water District 19 a year ago.

Page 13

At the time, VAA said it expected 10 soldout events a year at the new center and a total of 79 events annually. In a traffic analysis submitted by Heffron Transportation, Inc., the organization estimates 26 sold-out events and a total of 121 events a year. But Jeff Lakin, manager at District 19, said he’s not concerned about the differ-

ence in the two numbers. The new building has two water shares, plus a third one for the Blue Heron Arts Center, the existing structure that will remain a part of VAA’s new campus. “As far as the numbers stand now, they’ve got plenty of water,� Lakin said. “It’s not a concern.�

In the June 6th Special Graduation Supplement of the Beachcomber, due to a corrupt computer file provided by the Vashon Community Scholarship Foundation, some seniors who received scholarships were omitted and others stated incorrectly. For this we sincerely apologize to the seniors and their families. This week we are publishing the correct list of recipients in its entirety. Nearly $130,000 was generously donated by the community and awarded to 106 seniors who submitted scholarship notebooks. We congratulate these students and wish them the very best as they further their education. – Vashon Community Scholarship Foundation Student Name Carlie-Sue Anderson Catherine Amick

Science comes to life on the south end Volunteers spent an entire day two weeks ago taking stock of Vashon’s rich plant and animal diversity at the Island’s first-ever BioBlitz. During the BioBlitz — an event held at parks and natural areas all over the world — both experienced naturalists and curious members of the public worked to count as many plant and animal species as they could from 3 p.m. June 2 to 3 p.m. June 3 at the Neill Point Natural Area. Ecologist Bianca Perla, who helped organize the event, said volunteers are still poring over photos from the event in an effort to identify the hundreds of species observed at the 50-acre south-end preserve. Perla recently founded the Vashon Nature Center, citing a goal to better document the Island’s biodiversity. “Just going through a place, focusing so much and looking for such detail, it gives you an appreciation for the life we’re hosting on the Island,� Perla said. Volunteers counted birds by listening to their songs, observed shoreline creatures at low tide, live-trapped mammals and even

waded into small ponds to search for reptiles and insects. They didn’t spot some of the species they expected to, Perla said, but there were plenty of interesting creatures to be found at the site, including a seal and sea lion near the beach, a predaceous diving beetle eating salamander larvae in a pond and Henderson’s sedge, a plant that surprised the botanists. Children especially had fun at the event, Perla said, spotting a few things adults missed. While small mammal traps captured only field mice, everyone was thrilled when a young boy discovered a vagrant shrew. Perla said volunteers will put on another BioBlitz next year, when they hope to offer even more opportunities for the public to get involved. Perla noted that Neill Point was once the site of several homes, and she believes the same rich diversity can be found on properties all over the Island. “It’s a pretty neat experience to realize how much life is out there,� she said. — Natalie Johnson

Young rowers stroke their way to medals at national regatta Two Vashon boats placed second at Nationals By MARIANNE METZ LIPE For The Beachcomber

Vashon rowers came home victorious from Nationals last weekend, where Vashon rowers earned two silver medals in the extremely competitive event. The USRowing Youth National Championships, a culmination of the spring season, were held at Melton Hill Lake in Oakridge, Tenn., and featured more than 1,500 athletes from high schools and junior rowing programs across the country competing for national titles in 18 boat classes. The three Vashon boats that competed — with six rowers in all — qualified for the final heats in all three events, a significant accomplishment for the club. Ryan Bingham and Gus Magnuson, rowing the boys’ double, went on to take second place in their event. Bingham, Magnuson, Tate Gill and Baxter Call also placed second in the men’s quad. After two weeks of intensive practices in Quartermaster Harbor, the team of six rowers who qualified for nationals departed early on June 5. During the long flight across the country, coach Richard Parr required the rowers to walk the plane isle three times an hour to keep their muscles loose and warm. Two of the rowers, Bingham and Avalon Koenig, missed attending their own high school graduation ceremony last weekend to go to Nationals. It was a tough choice for Koenig, who wished she could have walked across the stage with her twin brother Ezra. “Ultimately, I didn’t have to really choose, I just knew,� Koenig said. “And I knew that as I sat at graduation listening to lists of names, I would be actively regretting my decision.� Vashon began preliminary heats Friday

Bingham and Magnuson, pictured wearing two medals each, also placed second in the men’s double. morning with the girls’ double, rowed by Koenig and Emmie Kehoe. They placed third in the heat and moved to a repechage, a second-chance race where runners-up in the eliminating heats compete for a place in semi-finals. The pair took first with open water behind them, securing their spot for Saturday’s semifinals. The girls’ semifinal race was very competitive. Halfway through the race, four boats were lined up, bow ball to bow ball, on the course. By the 500-meter mark, Koenig and Kehoe claimed third and then poured on the power, sprinting the last 250 meters to finish in second place. The finals were in their future. The boys’ double preliminary was rowed by Magnuson and Bingham. Bingham admitted he was nervous but excited. “We’re going to make sure we get first,�

WILLIAMS HEATING Proudly Sponsors‌ PIRATE

Bingham said. “That way we don’t have to go to (repechage).� And that’s exactly how it happened. The boys crossed the finish line nearly six seconds ahead of their competition, claiming their spot in the semifinals. About an hour later the boys climbed into another shell and were joined by Gill and Call to race the men’s quad. Their boat took first in their heat by a very close .30 seconds, qualifying them for the semifinals. In the boys’ double semifinal, Bingham and Magnuson were in the top three from the start. Then they picked up the rate, crossing the finish in second place and advancing to the finals. The field for the boys’ quad semifinal race was brutal from the start, as five of the six boats were lined up down the course. At 1,000 meters, VIJC slid into second place briefly then fell back to third. It was neck

and neck with the other boat. The crew turned on the after-burners and crossed the finish in second place, qualifying a third time for the finals. “It was really exciting to have all three of our boats in the A Finals,� said Richard Parr, the club’s new coach. On Sunday morning at the final races, Kehoe and Koenig faced a fiercely competitive field. At the tenth stroke into the race they “caught a crab� (a term used to describe an unfortunate catch of the oar blade in the water that acts like a brake) and got tangled in the lane bouys. They made up ground, but trailed the field throughout the course and finished in sixth place, a blow to both girls. Parr said he was still proud of the rowers. “I’m not disappointed in the girls at all,� he said. “They just couldn’t get back in it after the issues at the start.� In the finals for the men’s double, Bingham and Magnuson held third until the final stretch, when they cranked it up, moved into second and ultimately won the silver medal. Parr described their race as beautifully and tactfully rowed. An hour and a half later the two were out on the course again, joined by Call and Gill for the final men’s quad race. The crew had a strong start, moving into second position only to fall back to third, then fourth and fifth by 1,000 meters as fatigue set in. With just 250 meters to go, the boys rowed a beast of a sprint that moved them to challenge the second-place boat, crossing the finish .02 seconds ahead of the thirdplace boat, winning the team’s second silver medal. “At 500 meters these guys weren’t even in contention,� Parr said after the race. “That sprint was the best I’ve seen at any level of rowing. Overall, we had very good results for a small club.�

Pertussis outbreak continues to raise concerns in region Low-cost vaccines are now available on Vashon By SUSAN RIEMER Staff Writer

The pertussis outbreak continues in Washington, with more than 2,000 cases reported so far this year. In May, state health department officials determined that the respiratory illness had reached epidemic levels. As of June 2, 2,092 cases had been reported across the state, compared to just 164 cases during the same time period last year. Health officials continue to urge people to be vaccinated if they have not already done so and have made low-cost vaccines available in a variety of locations. On Vashon, low-cost pertussis vaccines for those 19 and older are available at the Vashon Health Center for low-income, uninsured and underinsured people, according to clinic

manager Rita Cannell, who said she ordered the vaccines to protect people in the community who are most vulnerable to the illness. Vashon has not had a confirmed case of pertussis since March, but the illness could still be circulating in the community without people knowing about it, she said, so vaccination is still important. The Tdap vaccines, which arrived last week, can be given for an administration fee of $15.60, Cannell said; if people cannot afford that fee, they can request that it be waived. Appointments are needed, and the fee is requested at the time of service. At the school district, nurse Sarah Day recently sent an email to students’ families, informing them that public health experts expect high rates of pertussis into the summer. For children, Day noted that low-cost vaccines are available at several Island clinics, all of which participate in the state’s Vaccines for Children program and receive the vaccines for free. At the beginning of the school year,

according to Day, 22 percent of district students were out of compliance with the pertussis vaccine, meaning the school district did not have paperwork indicating whether they had been vaccinated or not. That number now stands at 18 percent, she said. “I am pleased with that. To meet the bare minimum of herd immunity, we have another 3 percent to go,� Day said, referring to the degree of vaccination needed to consider the Island largely safe from an outbreak. Day also noted that if there are people who have filed vaccine exemptions but have since received the vaccine, she would like that information as well, in part because the University of Washington School of Public Health is studying the data from Vashon, which is known for its low vaccination rates. According to the state Department of Health, children under 7 should receive a series of five DTaP vaccines; children ages 7 to 10 who aren’t fully vaccinated against whooping cough and everyone age 11 and older should get the Tdap whooping cough booster.

moving again and will hopefully be able to put into action many of Mary’s ideas for what can happen here,� Pearson said Wednesday night, as she and other board members stood in front of the farmhouse. “There’s a lot of interest in this prop-

erty. It remains unique in the nation.� Kuperberg said she was in high school when Pres. Franklin D. Roosevelt signed the internment order, sending classmates of hers to internment camps. “It feels like a chance to give something back,� she said of her role on the board. But Matthews expressed outrage over the action and said the group lacked the

legal right to take over the board. Reached last week in Texas where she lives with her husband J. Nelson Happy, a New York attorney, she also questioned whether the group has the financial wherewithal to take on the property. Matthews and Happy have paid the property taxes with their own money and make other regular payments to care for the site, she said. They also own the historic barreling plant next door — the site where Mukai cold-processed strawberries for shipment across the country. “I think it’s really incredible that a group of people decide they can have a meeting and make up their own rules ‌ and take over a nonprofit and take over its assets,â€? Matthews said. “Who is this group of people? Do they understand how much the property costs every month just in basic expenses?â€? she asked. “What a way to do things. What a way to undertake something,â€? she added. “I don’t even know who these people are.â€? But Kritzman, Pearson and Greiner said the group is within its legal rights. They worked with Seattle lawyer Judy Andrews, an expert on nonprofit law, as they put together their plan. Three other lawyers also provided review and oversight.

“We really don’t think (Matthews) has a claim,â€? Greiner said. “If anything, we may have a claim against her ‌ for dereliction of the board’s responsibility to shepherd the organization.â€? The plan the group put together was both tightly orchestrated and quietly executed. The three women obtained a copy of the organization’s bylaws, written years ago by Islander Ted Kutscher — organizational rules that spell out how one becomes a member, the amount required in dues, who can call a special meeting and how notice of such a meeting must be given. They recruited around 70 Islanders to become members of Island Landmarks, all of whom paid $25 in dues. Kritzman, who was on Island Landmarks’ founding board, had an old treasurer’s report and thus knew that organization’s bank and account number, enabling her to deposit the checks from the new members before the special meeting was organized. The special meeting was then called by 12 members, or more than 10 percent of the membership, again a requirement of the bylaws. The group sent out a notice to the membership, including Matthews and the four other board members, two of whom — Ken and Ellen DeFrang — live next door

to the farmhouse, ensuring everyone received the mandatory 24 hours notice. The DeFrangs opted not to attend, said Ken DeFrang, who acts as the property’s caretaker. Matthews acknowledged that she received notice of the meeting and also did not attend. The notice said that the meeting was being called “for the purpose of developing a plan to revitalize the restoration and preservation� of the farmhouse and garden, “including replacing the present board of directors by a newly elected board who will move this project forward and fulfill the mission of making this property an historic and cultural community asset.� At the meeting, held last Monday night at the Land Trust Building, Pearson gave a PowerPoint presentation about the historical significance of the property; she also handed out a onepage list of the “top 10 reasons why Island Landmarks needs a new board of directors,� noting that it’s behind on its property taxes, the lack of regular board meetings and the farmhouse’s “sad state of disrepair.� Islander Steve Brown made a motion to replace the board with the new group, 11 Islanders who ran as a slate. It passed 69-0, Kritzman said. When the new board

was announced, the group applauded, she said. The new board is considered interim until the organization’s annual meeting is held next April. The effort caps a long and sometimes contentious effort on several Islanders’ part to wrest control of the historic farmhouse and garden from Matthews, considered by some a visionary champion of historic preservation but who struggled to administer the project and kept it under tight control. Two years ago, after Matthews put both the farmhouse and the barreling plant on the market for $799,000, a group of Islanders — with support from 4Culture, King County’s cultural arts agency, and several other conservation organizations — tried to broker a deal with her. The plan was to dissolve Island Landmarks, sell the house to the Puget Sound Zen Center and use the proceeds from the sale for a conservation group to purchase the barreling plant. Matthews ultimately declined the deal. A few months later, 4Culture asked the state Attorney General to dissolve the nonprofit for what it called the organization’s “utter failure to fulfill its vision.� The Attorney General opted not to step in, noting other solutions to the impasse seemed possible. Reached last week, an official at 4Culture said her agency was happy to learn of the turn of events. “We’re pleased that that kind of grassroots interest is so strong and that it bubbled up. We look forward to working with a viable organization,� said Flo Lentz, who heads the agency’s historic preservation program. “It’ll be good to have local stewards who are close to the property and can care for it and re-invigorate that public purpose that the organization had when it was founded.� The new board, meanwhile, says it plans to hold regular meetings, issue minutes and invite Islanders to become members. “One of the watchwords of this new board is transparency,� said Haulman. Meeker agreed, adding, “We have to re-establish Island Landmarks as a functioning organization.� The new board will hold a community-wide open house from 5:30 to 7:30 p.m. on Monday at the Mukai property, located at 18017 107th Ave. S.W. At 7 p.m., the board will meet to discuss next steps. All are welcome to attend that meeting as well.

Man charged with child porn pleads not guilty NEWS BRIEFS By NATALIE JOHNSON Staff Writer

A Vashon man charged with possession of child pornography pleaded not guilty in King County court on Monday. Gregory Richard Garcia, a 46-yearold homeless man who is often seen around Vashon town, was arrested on May 16 after police determined an iPod containing child pornography that was found on the ground at a baseball field belonged to him. The case has drawn the attention of the Seattle news media and prompted at least one Islander to take steps to prevent the man from coming onto his property. According to court documents, the iPod was picked up at the Sunrise Ridge baseball fields near the Vashon food bank by a man who then called police and turned it in to the King County Sheriff’s Office. Charging papers filed by the county late last month give graphic descriptions of the pictures and videos contained on the iPod, which show adult males forcing young girls to perform sexual acts and have intercourse. A Vashon sheriff’s deputy assigned to the case suspected the iPod belonged to Garcia after recognizing him in some of the self-filmed videos on the device. Court documents do not say if the self-filmed videos were pornographic. When questioned by authorities,

Garcia said the iPod, as well as a laptop found in his storage unit that also contained child pornography, belonged to him, according to charging papers. Shawn Hoffman, an Islander who owns the Vashon Market complex, said last week that he was surprised to find out about the incident in a Seattlepi.com article, which quoted court documents as saying Garcia had been seen “hanging out� at the Vashon Market parking lot where the Vashon Dance Academy is also located. Q13FOX broadcasted a report on Tuesday, June 5, from the Vashon Market parking lot. Hoffman said he has contacted the sheriff’s office to find out how he can block Garcia from coming on his property. He has also asked the sheriff’s office to do added patrols at the complex and plans to take extra security measures such as organizing his own drive-throughs. “We’re trying everything we can to assure the parents of the dancers that everything is being done that we can do,� he said. Garcia never caused any problems at the parking lot, Hoffmann noted, and was never seen watching children. “I would have noticed anyone loitering about and taken action,� he said. “He doesn’t just hang around our place. He kind of wanders the whole town.�

Hoffman said some of his tenants have nice things to say about Garcia and were surprised to learn of his charges. “He is a nice guy and he helps people with their computer problems,� Hoffman said some of his tenants told him. “A smart guy and he kind of watches out for the town, actually. I think he’s reported vandalism and things like that.� Still, Hoffman said, he’s taking all the precautions he can, saying “we don’t want to take the chance that it could escalate.� “I’m definitely not going to let it go,� he said. “I just want to assure the children are safe, even though he might be innocent and we might not have any worries. I think it’s fair to be cautious when it comes to our children.� A King County prosecutor requested Garcia be jailed on $100,000. The request was denied by a King County Superior Court judge. Garcia is scheduled to appear in court again on June 22 for a case-setting hearing. Sharon Schoen, a dance academy volunteer, said a few parents of dancers had questions about Garcia’s presence at the shopping center. But everyone seems happy with Hoffman’s response, she said, and she personally is not concerned about Garcia. “He always minded his own business,� she said. “As a homeless person goes, he seems to be a nice homeless person.�

/FXQPXFSMJOFTXJMM EFDSFBTFPVUBHFT Puget Sound Energy began a project last week that the agency believes will help reduce the number of power outages on Vashon. Over the next six months, crews will trim trees on stretches of Bank Road, Beall Road and Cemetery Road and replace power lines with specially designed wire that is more able to withstand being hit by a falling branch. PSE decided to undertake the project after assessing the most common causes of power outages on Vashon, an assessment it completes in towns all over the region, said Gretchen Aliabadi, a spokeswoman for PSE. Aliabadi said the three Vashon roads were determined to be the sites of the most tree-related outages on the Island. “(The project) solves some of the tree-related outages,� she said. “We know we’ll never eliminate all outages, but the tree wire is good at (eliminating) those types of outages.� The project will not com-

pletely close roads, Aliabadi said, but sometimes a flagger will guide vehicles past equipment. There will be some scheduled outages associated with the project, she said, and customers will be notified in advance.

Three bus trips on King County Metro line 119 — which runs between the north-end ferry terminal and Dockton on weekdays — have been discontinued. The southbound trips leaving the north-end ferry terminal at 7 p.m. and 7:25 p.m. have been canceled, as has the northbound trip leaving Dockton at 7:36 p.m. The trips are among several trips and routes county-wide that will be discontinued this month due to low ridership, said Linda Thielke, a spokesperson for the county Department of Transportation. Thielke suggested that some who rode the 119 bus leaving the north-end ferry terminal at 7 p.m. might consider riding the 118 bus that leaves the terminal at the same time and serves the same stops as far south as 204th Street.

Chestnut is a shy, friendly, nonaggressive young boy. He likes soft voices and is startled by loud sounds. He showed up at someone’s home and let himself in through the cat door and settled right in with the resident cats. When no owner was found, he was taken to the vet to see if he had a micro chip. No chip was found so Chestnut came to VIPP. While Chestnut stayed with the person who found him, he was a very nice house guest, not scratching the furniture and always using his litter box. He is a kitty who likes to sleep in bed with his person. Chestnut would do best in a quiet home.

Zeke is a millennium cat born in the year 2000. When he first came to the shelter Zeke was shy and unsure of the volunteers. You wouldn’t know that now. This guy is one gentle loving cat. His former owners had allergies so Zeke spent his years in a garage. Now, Zeke is looking for a home where he can spend time on the couch and in a lap. Zeke gets along with other cats but he is not so sure about dogs.
