An artist’s eye, a teacher’s heart

County plans to cut bus service, explore alternatives Vashon is one of three areas chosen for pilot project By NATALIE JOHNSON Staff Writer

Some of Vashon’s lesser-used bus trips may be cancelled as soon as next year under a King County plan to replace bus service in less populated areas with more costeffective transportation such as shuttles or carpools. The plan, which identifies Vashon as one of three sites for pilot projects, was forwarded to the King County Council for approval last week. “It’s really thinking outside the box of a big bus driving down the highway delivering people where they want to go,” said Joe McDermott, who represents

Vashon on the county council. “It’s a real opportunity for Vashon to be a trailblazer in the county for how we might do this.” Tim Johnson, who chairs the Vashon-Maury Island Community Council, however, said he was troubled by the lack of public input into the formation of the plan and questioned whether it would work on the Island. “I have a hard time envisioning something that would cost less and get people where they’re going,” Johnson said. “The alternatives sound nice, but I just don’t think it’s feasible.” The plan is being driven by Metro’s ongoing financial woes. Matt Hansen, who heads the county project, said the transit agency is looking to cut its budget in anticipation of a $60 million shortfall SEE METRO, 26

Beekeepers troubled by a rash of bee deaths this spring

Members of Vashon’s growing beekeeping community are expressing mounting concern over the state of their hives after a tough spring that saw the number of honeybees dwindle in several colonies and other hives die off completely. Emails have been flying, with some blaming pesticides for the demise of their hives. Others say a cold, wet spring and insufficient nectar sources may be behind the deaths; some bees have simply starved to death, they say. Honeybees have also been weakened over the years by a mite that bores into the insects, making them vulnerable to disease and viruses. Inexperience among a crop of new beekeepers could also be a factor, some say. Donna McDermott, a new beekeeper on Vashon, called it “a perfect storm.”

“It’s really sad,” added McDermott, who had several bees die in one of her three hives. “You come to love the girls and watch them work so hard. And then you go out one day and they’re acting funny, and the next day, they’re dead.” Bob Dixon, who’s been keeping bees for 15 years, recently lost one of his six hives — a new one that he purchased in February. He’s had bees fail to survive the winter, he said, but it’s unusual for him to lose a hive in the spring. “We don’t have the answers,” he said. “We don’t know what’s killing the bees.” As a result of the deaths, some beekeepers are calling on Vashon’s two hardware stores to stop selling certain products, particularly Sevin, a widely used insecticide that contains carbaryl, known to be fatal to bees. Concern is also growing about a family of insecticides called SEE BEES, 21

An osprey nest perched on top of a 165-foot microwave tower burst into flames last week, creating an inferno that killed two chicks and completely destroyed the long-standing nest. As the nest burned Tuesday evening, two adult osprey soared overhead, sometimes getting close to the blaze then flying away — a display that took place while a dozen Islanders, including a crew from Vashon Island Fire & Rescue (VIFR), watched from the ground. “There’s not much we can do,� Josh Dueweke, a captain at VIFR, said as he watched. “We have to let it burn, unfortunately.� VIFR’s ladder truck was not tall enough to reach the nest, perched at the very top of the tower. Spraying it with a hose wasn’t an option either, Dueweke said, as that might have scattered burning embers and further destroyed the nest. The tower, located at the corner of Vashon Highway and S.W. 204th Street, transports telephone traffic between Vashon and Seattle. The fire did not cause a service disruption, according to Jan Kampbell, a spokes-

when he saw the blaze and stopped. “There was quite a little bonfire up there,� he said. Swan did some research and found that such fires have occurred in osprey nests elsewhere. “This is the first I’ve heard of it. But apparently it happens,� he said. The osprey population has grown on Vashon over the years, Swan said, in large part because of the proliferation of cell towers. When he moved to the Island about a decade ago, there were two or three nesting pairs, he said. Now, there are seven or eight, all of them on cell towers. Swan, too, doesn’t know how the fire started. Some have speculated fireworks caused it, but he said he didn’t see any sign of fireworks, nor has he heard any yet this summer. He heard that some at VIFR believe the nest might have touched a live wire, triggering the blaze. If that’s the case, he said, he hopes that cell towers will be manufactured and wired in such a way that this couldn’t happen again. “Maybe a live wire next to where birds nest isn’t a good idea,� he said.

Owner gears up for a major redevelopment of LS Cedar The project will result in a building footprint eight times larger than the current set of buildings By LESLIE BROWN Staff Writer

Loren Sinner says the new warehouses will make his business operations much more efficient.

Loren Sinner can locate that 1x4 tongueand-groove a customer wants in a matter of minutes, but he might have to move stacks of wood to extract it from the piles of cedar in his small, bustling lumberyard. His lack of space — and the stacking and re-stacking it triggers — has made a demanding business that much harder. He works long hours and a lot of weekends, he said, in part because of the time it takes to manage his inventory. “It’s killing me,� he said matter of factly. Now, Sinner, the slim, silver-haired owner of LS Cedar, is about to begin the first redevelopment of his five-acre site at the corner of Vashon Highway and Cemetery Road since he moved to the location 30 years ago. He plans to build two new warehouses, an office twice the size of his current one and a lumber shed — all told, a $1 million project and an 800 percent increase in his building footprint. Demolition and site work began last week. He currently has one 2,400-square-foot warehouse and a small office. When his project is complete, he’ll have a total of 22,000 square feet of covered space —

including an 8,000-square-foot warehouse on the back edge of his lot, a 10,000-squarefoot warehouse in the middle and an opensided lumber shed along Cemetery Road that will measure 2,500 square feet. It’s a bold move for a businessman who’s never carried much debt, he said. Indeed, he said, “The minute I sign on the loan, I’ve got a huge monthly payment.� But Sinner, 56, said he’s done the calculations and won’t need additional revenue to make the loan pencil out. “We can do it with the amount of sales we have right now,� he said. Sinner has been selling custom-milled cedar and other lumber products for 38 years, the bulk of it to off-Island contractors doing high-end restoration work. He moved to the corner at Center 30 years ago, slowly building up a business that today employs 10 people, including all three of his sons. For years, he’s wanted to expand, he said. He loses some of his lumber to weather, scrambles to find space for his large inventory and spends an inordinate amount of time moving lumber from one spot to another, he said. “It’s ridiculous,� he said. “It’s why I work so many hours.� Three years ago, he began the process of attempting to secure a building permit — an expensive and time-consuming effort, he said. All told, he said, he’s spent $200,000 on the permitting process, including money spent on legal fees to challenge some of the county’s requirements. According to King County, the actual permit cost around $40,000, though Sinner said it cost even more than that and

that he saved thousands of dollars by hiring a lawyer who helped him through the process. “We’ve just been bleeding money for the last two years,� he said. Particularly frustrating, Sinner said, was King County’s requirement that he build a large retention pond to collect runoff from the parking lot he has to install. Under rules mandated by the county’s new surface water design manual, Sinner will have to excavate 6,000 yards of dirt and debris to build the pond; the size, he said, is 10 times what some say is needed. “It’s insanity,� he said. Jim Chan, assistant director of permitting in the county’s Department of Development and Environmental Services (DDES), said the county’s standards for surface water management are high on Vashon because it’s considered a “critical aquifer recharge area� — meaning, in Vashon’s case, that all of the drinking water comes from the Island’s aquifer. “Because Vashon is so sensitive, because all of its water comes from the aquifer, we have to be a little more sensitive� to surface water management, Chan said. Sinner remains frustrated with the 14-month process

it took for him to secure a building permit from DDES. “In 1990, a fire burned my place to the ground. This experience with DDES has been worse than that fire,� he said. At the same time, he’s excited about the project he’s finally launched. His new office will be similar to the Mitchell building across the street, fitting in, he said, with the look and feel of the historic intersection. “I don’t want to build something that stands out and doesn’t look right,� he said. He said he could have relocated his operation to Tacoma for the amount of money it’s cost him to go through the building permit process, but he didn’t want to leave Vashon, where he’s lived since 1959. Sinner is a well-known Island musician and a member of the Spotlights; he plays guitar, piano and bass and sings. “I really want to stay on the Island. I like the lifestyle,� he said. He doesn’t plan to close while construction is under way. And if all goes according to plan, he’ll have a new set of buildings within 13 months. “I’m very excited about it,� he said. “It’s been a lifelong dream to have these efficient, safe, well-organized warehouses.�

-PX5JEF$FMFCSBUJPOUPDPJODJEFXJUI'PVSUIPG+VMZ As Quartermaster Harbor’s marine recovery area continues to put the health of Puget Sound in the spotlight, local naturalist are gearing up for an annual event they hope will give visitors a deeper appreciation for what lives beneath the water. This year the Low Tide Celebration, put on by the volunteer Vashon Beach Naturalists during one of the lowest tides of the summer, will take place on Wednesday, July 4. It’s the first time the event has been on either a weekday or on the Fourth of July. Last year the event, which took place under sunny skies on Fourth of July weekend, drew nearly 1,000 people from on and off the Island. This year the beach naturalists are prepared for a similar crowd, said organizer Rayna Holtz, though attendance is largely weather dependent. “It’s such an extensive beach, it can hold that many people without seeming crowded,� she said. For six years, the Low Tide Celebration has been held at Point Robinson, where organizers say beach-goers can explore two dramatically different shoreline habitats. The sandy point holds large tide pools where colorful sea stars, anemones and tube worms make their homes, while at the cobble beach to the north, hermit crabs hide under rocks, moon snails peek above the surface and clams squirt water into the air. Special signs will mark the locations of interesting animals; the Vashon Beach Naturalists will be on hand to identify creatures, and Junior Beach Naturalists from the

Vashon Mini Storage Inside Storage Call

Homestead School will lead an activity for kids. Holtz said last year many who attended went out of their way to thank the volunteer naturalists who spend the day on the beach locating sea animals, answering questions and telling visitors interesting facts about their lives. “Many people had been on beaches before, but they hadn’t been aware of how much lives here in very inconspicuous places,� Holtz said. The lighthouse will again be open for tours, and in what has become a well-loved tradition at the celebration, local Native Americans will row the Blue Heron, a traditional Salish canoe, across Puget Sound from Federal Way to Point Robinson, likely sometime before noon. Dana Schuerholz, a Homestead School teacher who has been involved in the Low Tide Celebration, called the event a grassroots production put on by people who hope to impart a greater care for Puget Sound. “They really believe that the more other people have an opportunity to really understand more about (shoreline ecology), they’ll be more successful in preserving the environment in different ways,� she said. Holtz agreed, saying volunteers call the event a celebration, rather than a festival, for a reason. “A festival is more just to go and have good time, kick back and be self-satisfied,� she said. “This is a celebration to honor and call attention to and learn about something else.� — Natalie Johnson

Our advice to the county: Improve communications

They come from all over, bringing stories from other cultures.

King County has once again missed the mark in its communications with Vashon Island. It may make sense to find alternatives to the huge buses that roll up and down the highway on Vashon with only a handful of riders onboard. Because of our state’s heavy reliance on the sales tax, the transit agency is strapped for cash. Cuts will likely have to take place next year when a special $20 license tab fee retires, and unfortunately, Vashon’s routes are a target because of the rural nature of the Island. But in the process of formulating this plan, the county’s outreach to “stakeholdersâ€? included an invitation to only one person from Vashon, Tim Johnson, *OUIFQSPDFTTPG president of the Vashon-Maury GPSNVMBUJOHUIJTQMBO  Island Community Council. That in and of itself is of conUIFDPVOUZTPVUSFBDIUP cern, since the Island is one of iTUBLFIPMEFSTwJODMVEFE three areas in the county slated BOJOWJUBUJPOUPPOMZPOF to participate in a pilot project to develop alternatives to fullQFSTPOGSPN7BTIPO sized buses during certain hours of the day. Equally troubling is that Johnson says he didn’t receive any email invitations, only an email thanking him for his participation. In its introduction to its 70-page plan, Metro officials write that the proposal to find “alternatives to fixed-route bus service in less populated areas ‌ reflects feedback from stakeholders who met earlier this year and bus riders of routes in candidate areas who participated in an online survey.â€? That online survey certainly wasn’t widely advertised; only 170 people participated, and The Beachcomber never received notice about it. And even if Johnson did receive an invitation, does that constitute adequate outreach to Vashon? We don’t think so. Those involved with the process say there is now opportunity for the public to weigh in, as the proposal is pending before the King County Council. The question before us, apparently, isn’t whether Vashon’s bus service should be “right-sized,â€? as Metro terms it. The issue is how that might happen and what it might look like. Could Vanpools play a bigger role? Access buses? Diala-Ride services? It’s quite possible some alternatives would work for Vashon. Empty buses are costly and far from environmentally friendly. But the county needs to be aware of and sensitive to the unique situation on Vashon Island. Suggesting Metro might work with “partner agenciesâ€? on Vashon to provide transportation services — as one county official told The Beachcomber — shows a profound lack of awareness about Island life. What “partner agenciesâ€?? In its plan, submitted to the county council, Metro notes its successful relationship with Snoqualmie Valley Transportation, a small transit agency. Nothing even close to that exists on Vashon. County government continues to face a funding crisis, and there’s little room for waste. It is possible a new model for public transportation could be crafted on Vashon. But meaningful engagement has to be a part of the process. We trust and hope that will happen soon, before this process gets much farther down the road.

When I was growing up, extra kids were always there — cousins for the summer, preceptors from the medical school who followed my dad around his practice, an exchange student from Brazil, visiting musicians and so on. Exchange officers are charged with keeping the students safe, so host families need to be interviewed and checked. As you might imagine, travel documents for students take longer, since every country reacted in its own way to the events of Sept. 11, and to other terrorist acts. Foreign students have to be enrolled in school, have visas and passports and have a place to stay when they get to Vashon. Each Vashon student has to have the same things when he or she arrives in Warsaw, Istanbul, Bangkok or Berlin. As parents and students are looking for exchanges for 2013-2014, the exchange officers are lining up host families for three to four month stretches for the 2012-2013 school year. The participation of Islanders as host families is what keeps these programs available. Why do families host students? Well, my own children were generally wonderful, but ‌ In high school anyway, I thought the extra kids in our house had an elevating effect on the general level of

Vashon High School hosted nine year-long exchange students this year. While this was an exceptional year, VHS hosts an average of four, and at least as many Vashon students study abroad each year. Shortterm exchange programs in the summer add more than 20 students who travel, study and learn outside the classroom here and abroad. Why do they do it? I don’t know. They just want to. But here’s my guess: Everyone invents herself or himself in high school and again in college. More imagination can be applied to the task of inventing oneself in the exotic climate of another country, culture and language. Six years ago I started working with exchange students on Vashon. They have not stopped surprising and amazing me with their planning, talent, energy and imagination. An exchange takes planning a year in advance; it takes talent to arrange your life and classes so you can study abroad for a year; it takes huge energy and dedication to prepare academically and personally, and it takes imagination to accept that an exchange will change you in ways you cannot anticipate. Here’s how exchanges work, whether you are coming here or going there. Right about now, parents and students start looking for a year-long exchange beginning in fall 2013. Short-term exchanges start a bit earlier and are easier to set up. There are many organizations that offer exchanges, and the ones active on Vashon are listed at the end of this article. Once you have found some exchange programs that interest you, check the timelines and fill out a preliminary application. Where do they go? Asia, Europe, Central and South America, Mexico, Africa, anywhere reasonably safe. Where do they stay? Now, that’s the big question every year. Most exchanges are home stays. Most families are volunteers who have an extra bedroom and recognize

discourse and interaction while they lived with us. Oddly enough, our kids thought so, too. Consider that medieval landowners fostered their children with neighbors and relatives at the high school age so they could learn more than they could or would at home. It is common for host families to become lifelong friends with the students they host and the families that they come from. “Travel is fatal to prejudice, bigotry, and narrow-mindedness,� said Mark Twain. In case we did not get his point, he invented Huckleberry Finn, a child of nature who learns through his travels how to confront the central prejudice, bigotry and narrowmindedness of his era. I know of nothing more likely to move us toward international harmony than an ongoing involvement in the exchange of young minds between countries. — Bart Queary is a retired college teacher and dean and the outgoing president of the Vashon Rotary.

LETTERS Performing arts center

Structure will be beautiful

Let’s not build another Kingdome. We have been given a once-in-ageneration opportunity to build for the future. The new Vashon Allied Arts center will serve us well for the next 50 years. As I approach my 65th birthday, I look forward to more cultural offerings on the Island. The best architects have given us a beautiful, contemporary building with strong references to our rural heritage. The county building codes dictated the placement close to the road, but I think it will fit in well, with the use of natural materials. Let’s not go halfway and regret it in a few years. Join me in supporting all the generous and passionate Islanders who are working so hard to realize this dream. — Linda Weiss

Volunteering

Seniors often lend a hand

Thank you for publishing Mary Kay Rauma’s commentary about volunteer service on the magical isle of Vashon (“Speak up when volunteers get it right,� May 30). She has captured the essence of volunteering on our Island home. There is another part of the story. If one were to look at the rosters of the boards of all of the Island groups

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

that must have boards because of their tax-exempt status and the photographs of all of the hardy hands who show up for all of the activities that require workers, two things will be apparent: Many of the same people are on those rosters and in those photographs, and many of them are “citizens of a certain age,� or to be more precise, people drawing Social Security. The article on the Mukai farmhouse (“New board takes over Mukai farmhouse,� June 13) illustrates both points perfectly. Here is another example of a need being filled by such conscientious citizens. I sit on the board of Vashon Community Care. VCC has been extremely diligent in managing costs so that we can continue to provide aging services for the Island, including for those who can no longer afford to pay. One area that has been restrained is in grounds maintenance. Through donations, we acquired a very efficient tractor, needing only volunteers to step forward to run it. Board membership was solicited to do this, and the members who were available were indeed the most senior in age. So we need a few good men and women who will come to VCC, run the tractor and weed whacker, with the hope that they will be volunteers who themselves do not need walkers! The Island of which all of us are a part lives on volunteer effort more than any place that I have served. It takes more than the very small percentage who now help, as well as younger people, to keep all of these services afloat. — Capt. Joe Wubbold

Low-tide fest: Learn about our shorelines By ADRIA MAGRATH For The Beachcomber

Summer has officially arrived, and along with Fourth of July barbecues and family vacations, it is time for the annual celebration of our shore at Point Robinson. The Low Tide Celebration is a chance for us to connect with our oft-overlooked shorelines, teach our children about the importance of ecological relationships and learn about interesting native creatures that live in the intertidal zone. Whether you are a day-tripper to the beaches or a waterfront homeowner, a parent, or simply strive for environmentalconsciousness, you have reason to celebrate the unique natural riches that surround us on Vashon’s shores. The ocean conservation movement has been tremendously successful in raising awareness of ocean habitat, thanks to dedicated activists and amazing documentaries. In this region, we are generally more aware of water ecology issues than the average American, and a lot of our attention is focused on pollutants in Puget Sound and the health of the salmon, bivalves and other tasty species. But outside of those particular interests, we tend to overlook the shoreline and its inhabitants, vital contributors to Sound and ocean health.

Vashon’s shorelines provide a unique opportunity for learning about the complexity of the intertidal zone and its role in the Sound’s health, apart from the obvious one of being an island. We boast the most undeveloped shoreline in the state’s most populated county. Learning about the critters and ecology of the shoreline gives us an appreciation of the complex relationships of all living things, not only with each other, but also with the nonliving parameters (water flow, the nitrogen cycle, erosion, etc.) that help to determine the quality of ecosystems. The boundary where Puget Sound meets land is diverse biologically; it brings together species from both environments, supports characters unique to the habitat and produces food for yet other species. Intertidal inhabitants seem almost otherworldly to us, but by understanding their respective stories, we learn to appreciate what each has to offer and find respect for their differences. For example, one’s opinion of the lowly barnacle is surely raised when it is learned that it glues itself to rocks using one of the strongest adhesives on the planet, a cement-like protein that researchers have been trying to understand for years. Most Islanders are aware of the many benefits to physical and mental health of a child-

hood spent close to nature. Some have transplanted from the city for exactly this reason. And while some can take advantage of Vashon’s nationally recognized nature-based educational programs, the rest of us can take the opportunity to teach our children conscientiousness about the natural world through free public events such as the Low Tide Celebration. How many Vashon parents who take their children to the beach know how to teach them “best beach behavior� and why they should not stomp their way through a bed of eelgrass? The Low Tide Celebration is a chance to not only educate the next generation of conservationists, but to celebrate our Island’s great treasury of shorelines and beaches. Learning more about the complex beauty of the shoreline is important not only for parents and their children, but for anyone who has enjoyed a day on the beach, a kayak trip along the shore, a swim in the Sound or the dive of an osprey. No matter your religious affiliation or lack thereof, knowledge of the natural world nourishes us in a deeply spiritual way that is virtually unmatched by human endeavors.

Finding a new life: A diet becomes a path towards better health HEALTH By LAURA WISHIK gible for surgery, because I had not (yet) developed diabetes or heart disease. I felt like giving up. In September, I decided to take Islander Kathy Abascal’s class about foods that trigger inflammation. For 15 years my back and shoulders were so painful that a light touch made me scream. Perhaps this program would help. Kathy has her students refrain from eating certain foods for three weeks, including sugar, sugar substitutes, alcohol and wheat. When the three weeks ended, I didn’t want to go back to eating those foods. I felt liberated! I wasn’t obsessing about the next bowl of ice cream or pasta. I realized that eating sugar or wheat makes me crave more and more. I adopted some new behaviors due to Kathy’s program: t/PHSBJOTGPSCSFBLGBTU POMZ protein, vegetables and fruit. I

usually have an egg scrambled with spinach, mushrooms and tomatoes. A little cheese, tofu or ham gets added occasionally. t*OTUFBEPGiHSB[JOHwBMMEBZ  I eat three meals and two snacks at set times. Snacks are usually 10 almonds and a piece of fruit. Instead of buying lunch I bring it to work, saving money and calories. t&WFSZNFBMPUIFSUIBOCSFBLfast consists of equal thirds of protein, grain and vegetables and/ or fruit. t*VTFEUPIBWFBCJHiCFEUJNF TOBDLw/PX*EPOUFBUBOZUIJOH after dinner. t*SBSFMZESJOLBMDPIPM%JE you know alcohol has nearly twice as many calories per ounce as meat or potatoes? t"MMGPPEJTGSFTI OPUQSPDFTTFE &BUJOHPOMZPSHBOJDGPPEJTUPP expensive, but I now grow five varieties of lettuce in window boxes. My spouse Gary, who does the cooking in our family, jumped on board whole-heartedly. Our kids, not so much, but at least the adults are modeling healthy eating. Shape Up Vashon is another great resource. It costs only $10 to join and you get free classes and information on nutrition and

health, a supportive group to cheer you on, an online program to track your progress and links to community members who you can join for walks, swimming or other forms of activity. I like the link to exercises for strengthening core muscles. Key to my recent weight loss was having a short-term goal. After watching our daughter ride horses for a couple years, I got the crazy notion to learn to ride, too. I doubted I could do it at age 56 — me, the person who never FYFSDJTFE#VU&NJMZ8JHMFZPG Fish Bowl Farm agreed to teach me. First, in fairness to the horse, I decided to lose 40 pounds. While I was losing weight, &NJMZIFMQFENFTIPQGPSUIF iSJHIUwIPSTF&WFOUVBMMZXFGPVOE 9FOB NZCFBVUJGVMNBSF&NJMZ was an encouraging teacher, but I realized I needed to be stronger and more agile. I unearthed the treadmill that was serving as a clothes rack and started walking on it 10 minutes a day, followed by stretching. Slowly, I increased time and speed. When I hit a plateau, I found an app for my phone to track the calories I’m eating and burning. A few weeks ago, I hit another plateau after losing 60 pounds. I joined a

gym near my office and started working with a personal trainer. Another seven pounds gone! In the mid-afternoons I used to feel like my head turned into a bag of cement that had to be laid EPXOPOUIFEFTL/PUBOZNPSF As for my chronic pain, it’s barely noticeable now. I’m not absolutely rigid about what I eat. On special occasions I may have dessert or a glass of wine, but frankly, most of the time it’s easier to abstain. Along the way I’ve realized this isn’t a diet, it’s a way of life. For the first time, the weight loss feels sustainable. The good news is, if I can do it, maybe you can too.

“You’re a shadow of your former self!� a friend called in greeting to me. What? Oh, yeah, she means the 67 pounds I’ve lost. For anyone who, like me, has been overweight since childhood, this is a tale of hope. I was 9 when my mother put me on a diet for the first time. I blame it on the French. They created croissants, after all. It didn’t help that my parents thought sports were for people (actually, boys) who didn’t go to college. They considered physical activity dangerous. Diets became semi-annual tortures — weeks of lettuce, cottage cheese, celery and sugar-free Jello. Yuck! Between diets, food was my comfort when I was down and my reward when I was up. I went to counseling and the 12-step program for over-eaters. I lost weight, then gained it back. By last year, walking up hills made me breathless. I barely fit into an airplane seat and had to ask for an extension for the seat belt. My world was shrinking as I expanded. I began looking into gastric bypass surgery. It seemed the only way I could possibly lose over 100 pounds. But I wasn’t eli-

Islander Larry Flynn recently participated in AIDS Lifecyle 11, a fundraiser for the Los Angeles Gay and Lesbian Center and the San Franisco AIDS Foundation. The annual seven-day ride covers the 545 miles between Los Angeles and San Francisco. Flynn, who was injured and had to stop about 180 miles into the ride, raised $7,300 from 125 sponsors. In the photo above, Flynn is standing amidst the bikes in Bradley, Calif., a town of 93, according to the last census. The town holds a barbecue for the riders — 2,300 this year — and in turn the riders buy enough hamburgers and tourist items to fund the town’s athletic department for another year. Despite not being able to complete the ride, Flynn noted he was pleased to participate and “bring some money to the table.� In all, the ride raised $12.6 million to help fund programs to end HIV and increase awareness about AIDS.

LATE BREAKING NEWS r 24/7 r www.vashonbeachcomber.com

The Vashon Library recently bought a new reader and printer for microfiche and microfilm and is the first branch in the King County Library System to have a machine of this type. Called the Scan-Pro 2000, it sits next to and interfaces with the library computers. It will allow patrons to research Island history through The Beachcomber, which the library carries on film and fiche back to 1907. It will also be helpful to genealogists and professional writers who conduct research in newspapers and periodicals, according to Jan Riley, the library’s operations supervisor. The machine is easy to use, Riley said, and can magnify, straighten, focus, zoom, crop and brighten. A “word search� function highlights any word, which is particu-

larly helpful when genealogists are looking for a family name, and there are several options for scrolling speed. With the Scan-Pro, people can still print desired material, including in color, and email material to themselves or save it to a USB drive or a disc. An information sheet is available to users, and library staff are happy to help as well, Riley noted. Funds for the Scan-Pro, which cost about $10,000, came from donations from Vashon Library patrons. The Scan-Pro arrived in May, according to Laurie Tucker, a library assistant, and has been well received so far. “Our old machine was so outdated and worn; this is a big improvement,� she said. — Susan Riemer

From the symphony to the studio

A Vashon artist charts a new course By ELIZABETH SHEPHERD Arts Editor

I

t’s easy to start feeling hungry in Kristen ReitzGreen’s art studio.

The walls of the small, five-sided cedar studio are hung floor to ceiling with the artist’s colorful canvasses — masterful, close-up oil paintings of fluorescent foods, including ice cream sundaes, chocolate kisses, gummy bears, Swedish fish and glistening jars of honey. But faces also shine out from the wall — a softly smiling, cherubic baby, another child whose closed eyes show off feathery, dark eyelashes and a majestic, genie-like cat that stares back at viewers from the safety of a huge, dark canvas. There are also dozens of smaller paintings of single subjects — chickens, rocks, dandelions, flowers and, tellingly, a single shiny trumpet. The artist, it seems, has a story to tell, and the paintings provide hints that it is a tale of musical instruments, children, animals and, quite unexpectedly, finding a sweet new life on Vashon. Despite the skill evident in Reitz-Green’s work, she only began painting six years ago, after moving to Vashon at the age of 40. “You never know what you can do,� Reitz-Green said, as she sat in her studio on a rainy June day. “There was no part of me that ever said, ‘Yes, I can do that, I’ll be an oil painter.’� Instead, Reitz-Green described a process by which painting came along and took her by surprise. Before picking up a brush, she had a flourishing career as a classical musician, playing French horn in orchestras throughout the United States, most recently in the pit of the Pacific Northwest Ballet. A graduate of The Juilliard School in New York and the Hartt School of Music in Hartford, Conn., Reitz-Green had spent decades honing her artistry as musician. She fell in love with Seattle after she passed through the region while playing in a touring Broadway show. Eventually, she married one of her own kind, professional trumpet player Vince Green. Her course seemed set. “Classical music was my entire life,� she said. Then came children — a girl first and then a boy born a little more than a year later, when Reitz-Green was in her mid-30s. But shortly after the birth of her son, in 2003, Reitz-Green’s life turned upside down when she was diagnosed with breast cancer.

&MJ[BCFUI4IFQIFSE4UBGG1IPUP

Kristen Reitz-Green never set out to be an oil painter. Below are two of her works, “Jelly Runneth Over,� and “Blue Chucks.� Reitz-Green said that after battling and recovering from the illness, she and her husband were eager to escape the intensity of city life. In 2006, the couple moved from West Seattle to Vashon, settling on a three-acre property on the Dilworth Loop that provided plenty of room not only for their growing children but also a menagerie of animals that now includes five cats, a dog and a flock of chickens. And after Reitz-Green moved to the Island, something else happened: She quit playing the French horn. In the years since her illness, she said, she had found performing to be stressful and exhausting. “I felt drained after performances,� she said. “You can’t do it halfway — there is no hiding at the bottom of the section.� Reitz-Green said that at the time, she wasn’t sure what she wanted to do for a living, but she knew that it would have to involve the arts. “I’m a creative person, there’s just nothing else for me,� she said. “I can’t do anything else.� Soon, she found herself painting her children’s furniture in a colorful Oaxacan style — a pastime that eventually led her to sell hand-painted furniture at The Heron’s Nest. Another pivotal moment came when she found a mentor — well-known Island artist Pam Ingalls, who continued to coach Reitz-Green privately for two years after she first taught her in a three-day oil painting workshop. The workshop, for Reitz-Green, was a game-changer. “It was the hardest thing in the world for me to do,� she said. “It was such a step. I had never drawn anything.� Ingalls described Reitz-Green as a student unlike any

other. “It has never happened to me before,� she said. “She just went straight for the gold. Whatever I said in class, she would just do it. That sounds so simple, but it is very, very rare that anyone catches on that fast.� Ingalls’ theory is that Reitz-Green’s background as professional musician gave her unique tools to launch a new career as a visual artist. “She has great concentration and dedication,� Ingalls said. “I have a feeling that no matter what Kristen does, she’ll do it well.� And indeed, Reitz-Green is beginning to find her way as an artist. With the same discipline with which she mastered the French horn, she now paints daily, never missing a chance to practice. She has had exhibits throughout the Northwest, and in September, she’ll have a solo show at The Hardware Store Restaurant. She is also involved with Vashon Artists in the Schools, recently overseeing the creation of six large canvasses of healthy food, painted by Chautauqua students, that will grace the school’s cafeteria. But Reitz-Green said she’s still learning, still a student. In 2010, she sold her last and favorite French horn, using the proceeds to take her family to New York City, a place where she once dashed off to concerts and lugged a music case through the halls of Juilliard. But this time, she said, she did something different — she spent her days inside the city’s gleaming, cavernous museums. “Before, when I lived in New York, I had musician’s eyes,� she said. “But, after having started painting, it affected me all so differently.�

Kevin Joyce and Jennifer Sutherland will sing on Friday.

%VPCSJOHTCBMMBETBOENPSFUPUIF3PBTUFSJF The duo of Jennifer Sutherland and Kevin Joyce will perform a free concert, “Love and Other Demons,� at 7 p.m. Friday at the Vashon Island Coffee Roasterie. Both performers are well known on Vashon. Sutherland currently serves as one of the town’s unofficial mayors in her role as a founder of the Washington State Fairies Singing Telegram Co. She frequently appears at public functions with her fairy cohort, Tami Brockway Joyce. She is also a talented chanteuse who has appeared as the front woman of various Seattle bands, including the well-loved

Evangeline. Joyce, a performer who moved to the Island more than 20 years ago to help found UMO Ensemble, is a musician, comedian and impresario who frequently works as an auctioneer and host at gala events on and off the Island. With his wife Martha Enson, he runs EnJoy Productions, a company that provides entertainment, training and event coordination to corporate clients. His album “Say It� is a showcase for his skills as a singer and songwriter. For their show at the Roasterie, Sutherland and Joyce will sing originals and covers of tunes by Leonard Cohen, Bob Dylan, Pattie Griffin and John Prine. Since most of the songs are heart-wrenching love songs, they’ll also try and work in a few happy tunes as well, Joyce said. The evening will also include a wine tasting with Vashon Winery owner Ron Irvine, starting at 6:30 p.m. Four wines can be tasted for $10.

Making our homes more efficient

HOME ENERGY AUDITS

)FSFTXIBUZPVOFFEUPLOPX Puget Sound Energy offers free home energy audits to every one of its customers, which on Vashon means virtually every homeowner. (Renters, too, have some options; see our story on page 18.) The audits are a pretty sweet deal: Those who sign up receive 50 free compact fluorescent light bulbs. PSE has gone through a couple iterations with its home energy audits. Initially, the company offered at a reduced cost a comprehensive evaluation, called a HomePrint Evaluation, which included the use of a blower door and infrared scan to find leaks and gaps. Between January 2009 and February 2010, the company conducted 73 such evaluations on Vashon. It now offers a HomePrint Assessment, an abridged version of the program without the blower door and infrared scan tests. Those began in March 2010. Since then, the company, using two independent contractors to conduct the assessments, has conducted 164 of them on Vashon. “It’s a real good deal for homeowners,� said Michael Laurie, one of the two contractors who performs the audits. PSE officials say the company has seen a reduction in home energy use as a result of the audits. All those CFLs alone have reduced consumption on Vashon by 115,241 kilowatt hours, said Luke Giustra, with PSE. The company offers them, said Patti McClements, PSE’s community service manager on Vashon, because it ultimately saves PSE money in the long run. “Our goal is to conserve enough energy so that we don’t have to build more power plants in the future, which is far more costly than bringing the energy conservation message to our customers,� she said. But even with free audits, PSE is not seeing Islanders beat down its doors requesting them. McClements thinks it’s because the company has already reached what she called “the early adopters.� “Now we’re trying to reach the next level, which takes a bit more effort,� she said. — Leslie Brown

A new industry begins to take hold on Vashon By LESLIE BROWN Staff Writer

Y

vonne Kuperberg lives a life that’s about a green as it gets: She drives a Prius, heats with wood, serves on a conservation organization’s board and lives in a small A-frame house tucked deep in the woods. But stand in front of a pair of French doors in her bedroom during a weatherization test, and the cold air blows through with enough force to muss one’s hair. Now, Kuperberg is joining the ranks of hundreds of other Islanders concerned about leaky homes that are costly to heat, uncomfortable and often — if the homeowner uses extra fuel to heat the house — harmful to the environment. Last week, after getting a home energy audit done, she had her house thoroughly weatherized. “I heat with wood, and I would like to use less wood,� she said simply, when asked why she’s getting her house weatherproofed. But even Kuperberg, a longtime Islander who cares deeply about the environment, found it took her a while to make good on that audit. Michael Laurie, a consultant who does home energy audits, conducted the one at Kuperberg’s house two years ago. Greg Kruse, with Potential Energy, came in last week to do the work. “It took me a while,� she said, smiling. Asked

why, she said she had hoped to have family members do the work. But during an especially cold snap last winter, when she found an icicle inside an upstairs cubby, “That told me I better get something done.� Across the Island, the picture is mixed when it comes to addressing one of the country’s leading environmental concerns — its voracious appetite for carbon-based fuels. For the past three years, WisEnergy — a group of volunteers working to reduce Vashon’s carbon footprint — has pushed hard to raise the Island’s energy-consumption consciousness. The group has had some meaningful success. Puget Sound Energy’s most recent numbers show energy consumption has fallen about 7 percent in the last couple of years. What’s more, on Vashon, a small industry is beginning to evolve — one built around home energy conservation and renewable energy. Kruse, a contractor who specializes in making homes energy efficient, not only survived the recession but has seen his small company grow steadily since he started it three years ago. He launched Potential Energy with one helper; he now employs three. “With respect to everybody else in the building industry, I have a pretty sweet story,� he said. But at the same time, many people have still not stepped forward, despite the fact that Puget

Sound Energy is currently offering free energy audits, replete with 50 energy-saving lightbulbs, some note. Laurie, one of two contractors who handles PSE’s audits, has done 114 audits on Vashon since he began working for PSE two years ago. He could easily do many more. “I’m not real busy with energy audits,� he said. “I’m not real busy with conservation work on Vashon.� What makes energy efficiency difficult, some say, is simple: It’s not very sexy. Kruse, when he came into Kuperberg’s house, sealed up leaks, caulked windows and plumbed and weatherstripped that drafty French door. “It’s totally basic stuff,� he said. Both Laurie and Kruse say the savings from energy efficiency can be significant over time. During this period of low-interest rates, reducing one’s home heating costs represents one of the best investments a homeowner can make, they said. But many think of weatherization as costing money, not saving it, they said. “I think part of what holds back the conservation effort is that sometimes people don’t think of the money they put into their homes as an investment, like a 401K. But you should,� Laurie said. “Right now, a good return is, say, 5 to 7 percent. A lot of conservation stuff equals or exceeds that.� Kris Pedrin, owner of Healthier Air and Heating, a Vashon company, is installing his fourth geo-thermal heat pump, a

system that pumps heat from the ground into the home, considered one of the greenest sources of energy available today. He also installs heat pumps, units that absorb outdoor heat and pass it into the home. But geothermal systems are expensive — they can cost $20,000 to $30,000, he said. And those who have opted for the new systems have done so not necessarily to be greener but because they were facing the staggeringly high costs of heating with oil or propane, he said. One family, for instance, was paying around $4,000 a year to heat their home with oil. With a geothermal pump in place, their yearly heat bill is now around $700, he said. Pedrin says he, too, could be busier, and, like Laurie, he also has to go off-Island to get enough work to make a living. But his business is relatively new — he started it eight years ago — and he’s optimistic that Vashon customers will soon be his mainstay. “I think it’s just a matter of time,� he said. Mary Bruno, a board member and one the founders of WisEnergy, said the small nonprofit is poised to take the next step as an organization — one that she believes will help homeowners begin to realize the potential of what she believes is an important and inspiring movement. The group hopes to team up with a much larger nonprofit organization that could bring some money and greater expertise to the Island — maybe

Michael Laurie, Yvonne Kuperberg and Greg Kruse in Kuperberg’s house, which will be warmer this winter, now that she had an energy audit done and followed up on the many recommendations. as soon as this fall, she said. Should the partnership come to pass, WisEnergy would be able to hire a staff member or two, she said. And that, in turn, means the organization could help people move — as Kuperberg did — from getting a home energy audit to doing the work of implementing its recommendations.

“One way or another,� she said, “by next year, we plan to have a more aggressive program on Vashon.� She and others at WisEnergy were motivated to found their organization after reading an article in the July 7, 2008, issue of The New Yorker about a Danish island’s shift to renewable energy.

The dream, Bruno said, is still very much alive. “Vashon is such a cool place, such an aware place. And it feels like it ought to be this utopia for energy consciousness,� she said. “It’s about creating a model that really works and is efficient,� she added, “and then promulgating it everywhere.�

Renters find a way to make their house more efficient By working with their landlord, one Vashon family was able to create a cozier home By SUSAN RIEMER Staff Writer

Homeowners often face many choices when making their houses more energy efficient, but for people who rent, weatherization options often feel few and far between. In fact, many renters lament that their only real choice is contending with cold homes during the Northwest’s chilly season or paying very high energy bills, according to Mary Bruno, a board member with WisEnergy. The crux of the problem is that in most rental houses, the homeowners pay for improvements, but in the case of energy upgrades, the tenants benefit from the work. Such a situation, called a split incentive in the energy conservation world, leaves little economic motivation for owners to undertake such improvements in their rental properties. But at least one Vashon family and their landlords worked together to create what both parties say is a win-win situation that reduced the home’s energy footprint and

energy costs and increased its livability. Islanders Steve Brown and Sally Fox own a 1960s-era Maury Island home where Rob Harmon and his wife Kelly Reese have lived since 2005. When the couple moved in, the home’s energy-consuming flaws — its original oil furnace, inadequate insulation and singlepane windows — were immediately apparent to Harmon, who has worked in the energy-conservation field for more than 25 years. Those flaws were also apparent to Brown, who noted he shares Harmon’s concerns about energy efficiency for both philosophical and pragmatic reasons. “We are both concerned about the environment and general environmental issues,� he said. For Harmon’s part, the pragmatic concerns were very real. The house felt cold, he said, and the heating bills were high. At just 1,000 square feet, the house is modest. But with high oil prices — the price is now $4 a gallon on Vashon — it can cost thousands of dollars to heat a home of any size over the course of a year. “It’s frightening,� Harmon said. And so he and Brown worked together to come up with a plan. They brought in an expert to do an energy audit and sought ways to create the most results for the least amount of money. “It was a pretty clear early on the answer was insulation,� Brown said.

Kelly Reese and Rob Harmon said that after their son Vaughn Harmon was born, they added insulation to the floor. Their rental, they say, is now much cozier and warmer. They followed up on that answer, insulating the attic, duct work and the small portion of the floor that was not carpeted. This change reduced Harmon and

Reese’s oil usage by 28 percent, from 468 gallons one year to 335 the next, he said. Parts of the house continued to feel cold, Harmon said, and after they had their son

Vaughn, now 15 months old, they insulated the rest of the floor. “Your entire experience of being in the house changed,� Harmon said. For now, Brown and Harmon are not considering replacing the large single-pane windows. While double-pane windows bring a significant comfort benefit, it takes a long time to reap the financial rewards of installing costly new windows. “There is energy lost from windows,� Harmon said, “but it is not high enough for the savings to pay for the very high cost of replacing them.� Harmon and Brown are also considering replacing the furnace, but most options would require additional gas or electrical service to the house, and that expense, too, is a stumbling block. Financially, the couples involved have worked out an approach that seems fair for them — one they believe could be a model for other renters and landlords to follow. Brown and Fox have paid for the upgrades, while Harmon and Reese increased the rent they pay each month equal to the savings they obtained in their utility bills. Brown noted people in the real estate field have told him the upgrades will not increase the value of the home but may make it more desirable should

he and Fox decide to sell it. The potential financial risk for them is that while Harmon and Reese say they have no plans to move for quite some time, they do not have to stay — and that would bring an end to the reimbursement plan. For his part, Harmon said even though he and his wife are not saving money from these upgrades, the work was beneficial. “It is the correct thing to do to reduce the amount of energy wasted in the house I live in,� he said. “And I have derived a lot of practical comforts out of it.� WisEnergy’s Bruno said that many homes on Vashon were built several years ago as summer homes and were often not intended as year-round dwellings, leaving the Island with what Bruno calls a “drafty housing stock.� With the energy situation and energy costs being fundamentally different today than they were when many homes were built, the kind of partnership Brown and Harmon created is important, Bruno said. Harmon concurs. “Overall the housing stock on Vashon is in dire need of energy efficiency upgrades,� he said. “If people sit down and do the math together, they can find a way to share the savings, and both folks benefit.�

&OFSHZGBJS TPMBSUPVSUFBNVQGPSBCJHEBZ For the past two years, WisEnergy, a small Vashon organization, has put on Caulk the Rock, an ambitious energy fair providing Islanders with handson information about ways they can live a bit more sustainably on Vashon. About 500 people have come each year, a decent turnout in light of the weather (it’s been cool and rainy the last two years). This year, organizers hope the sun will shine and even more people will attend. And to that end, they’ve made a few changes. The event takes place on Saturday from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. — this year in the parking lot at Island Hom Center & Lumber. Previously, it was held in the parking lot next to the Village Green. Mary Bruno, one of the founding board members of WisEnergy, said Island Lumber’s site makes sense: There’s more room, she noted. What’s more, Island Lumber will sell food and provide a flatbed truck for a band, adding a festive atmosphere to the event. WisEnergy will also be able to use Island Lumber’s electronic sign, a beacon organizers hope to put to creative use, Bruno said. In one of the biggest changes, the fair this year is now taking place on the same day as Vashon’s Solar Tour, organized by Artisan Electric. Ten sites are included in the self-guided tour — residences or buildings with different kinds of systems for people to view. Maps for the the tour, which will be held from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m., will be available at Caulk the Rock. There are also several more vendors and presenters at this year’s fair, Bruno said — including a company that makes steel products from recycled scrap metal, another that uses sheep’s wool as insulation and an electric bicycle manufacturer. As in previous years, there will be workshops as well — covering topics from beekeeping to harvesting rain for drip irrigation. The volunteer-run organization continues to try to find a way to make a difference on the Island — to

For three years, they had a presence on Vashon with their energy hut, located next to the Village Green. WisEnergy sold the hut after a board retreat last fall, in part, Bruno said, because the board believed the hut had served its mission — getting people to step inside and learn more about sustainability and energy conservation. Now, she said, they’re taking their message to Islanders, trying to reach new groups of people by visiting churches, civic organizations and classrooms with their message of a brighter future. “We feel proud about what we accomplished with the hut,� Bruno said. “But we were preaching to the choir. We want to be out in the community.�

neonicotinoids, commonly used by large-scale farmers to control pests on corn, cotton and sunflowers. Others are working on educational materials that could be displayed at local stores or are pushing for the creation of what they call bee-friendly gardening displays. â&#x20AC;&#x153;There are a lot of unknowns, but thereâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a growing body of evidence that pesticides are likely playing a role in bee colony collapse,â&#x20AC;? said Michael Laurie, who is working on an educational campaign focused on the environmental effects of pesticides. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I think weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ll find over time that there are multiple factors, and pesticides are likely one of them.â&#x20AC;? But some of Vashonâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s most experienced beekeepers say it may be wrong to assume that pesticide-use on the Island is the leading cause of honeybee death. Steve Rubicz, whoâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s been keeping bees since 1971, said Vashon doesnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t have the kind of wide-scale pesticide-use some parts of the country experience, where agriculture occurs on an industrial scale. Used incorrectly or at the wrong time of the year, some insecticides can be quite harmful to bees, he said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s true that bees are killed by pesticides,â&#x20AC;? he added. But he believes weather â&#x20AC;&#x201D; particularly a lot of rain, which leads to damp hives susceptible to fungus and pathogens â&#x20AC;&#x201D; is hard on an insect that originally hailed from the Mediterranean. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Weather quite often is the problem in the Northwest. Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s amazing how many hives disappear

in the spring for that reason,â&#x20AC;? Rubicz said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s never been easy (to raise bees) in the Northwest,â&#x20AC;? he added. Elizabeth Vogt, a Ph.Dlevel entomologist who used to do forensic dissections of honeybees for a living, said she, too, believes â&#x20AC;&#x153;our cold springsâ&#x20AC;? have taken a toll on bees. But despite a beekeeping community on Vashon with an active listserve, information about whatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s happening to Vashonâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s honeybees is anecdotal and incomplete, she said. As a result, she hopes to work with other beekeepers to gather information about the situation on Vashon â&#x20AC;&#x201D; how many hives, where theyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re located on the Island and what kind of losses, if any, theyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve experienced. Vogt sees a kind of alarm sweeping Vashonâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s beekeepers, which is understandable in light of the deaths many are seeing, she said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;What if chickens were getting wiped out?â&#x20AC;? she asked. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Chicken owners would be panicking.â&#x20AC;? â&#x20AC;&#x153;Thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s where we are,â&#x20AC;? she added. â&#x20AC;&#x153;And thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s why we need more information.â&#x20AC;? Concern about honeybees has been growing over the years as a result of a phenomenon called Colony Collapse Disorder, first identified in 2006 and now thought to be responsible for the death of a third or more of the nationâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s honeybees. The collapse is cause for alarm in large part because of the role honeybees play in agriculture: The insects pollinate about onethird of the nationâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s crops, including more than 130 different kinds of fruit and nuts; in the case of almonds, the nut would not persist were it not for bees pollinating almond trees. Theories have abounded about the cause, from

viruses to stress to a cellphone signals, alleged to interfere with the beesâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; navigational abilities. A writer for Scientific American, in a post on the magazineâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s website in April, wrote that three new studies have implicated neonicotinoids â&#x20AC;&#x201D; commonly used by farmers in some parts of the country â&#x20AC;&#x201D; as one of the leading culprits. In one study, researchers found that 94 percent of the hives whose bees had been fed the pesticide died within six months, according to Scientific American. Researchers believe the bees ingest the pesticide not only after itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s sprayed on crops but from corn syrup made from insecticide-treated corn; some beekeepers use corn syrup to feed their bees when their honey stores are not sufficient. Dixon, a Dockton beekeeper concerned about pesticide use, said he was prepared to introduce a motion to the Vashon-Maury Island Community Council calling for Vashon to become â&#x20AC;&#x153;a pesticide-free zone.â&#x20AC;? The motion â&#x20AC;&#x201D; advisory only, since the community council doesnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t have the power to enforce such a zone â&#x20AC;&#x201D; was scheduled to be voted on next month. But Dixon said heâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s withdrawing the motion because others in the beekeeping community believe a better approach is to work cooperatively with Vashonâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s hardware stores. â&#x20AC;&#x153;A number of people have been working on this pesticide problem. They think my motion might upset the apple cart,â&#x20AC;? he said.

Page 21

John Yates, the owner of True Value, said heâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s been struck by the number of Islanders who have come into his store wanting to discuss the issue. Just last week, he said, five or six people brought up the sale of pesticides at his shop. Yates said heâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s hesitant to stop selling products that some say may be linked to bee deaths, since those who want the products will simply get them elsewhere. But he said heâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s willing to put out brochures or other materials that could educate consumers. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re very happy to help in the educational process,â&#x20AC;? he said. As for identifying certain products as bee-friendly,

Yates added, â&#x20AC;&#x153;That has been suggested, and weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re quite open to that idea. Weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re open to people who are willing to present the information, to provide it in a non-confrontational manner.â&#x20AC;? At least one beekeeper said heâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;d oppose any effort to ban the use of certain pesticides. Bob Norton, an orchardist and gardener who has both mason bees and honeybees, said he believes people have to be very careful in their use of pesticides. He has Sevin for his crops, though he rarely uses it. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I have healthy bees, and I have for many years. I use pesticides when I need them,â&#x20AC;? he said. Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s imperative, he added, that people read the labels

Recalling the time Buehl created the frame of a nearly life-size orca and let children decorate the outside, Toovey said Buehl has a way of â&#x20AC;&#x153;making the bones and hanging the creative expression on that.â&#x20AC;? â&#x20AC;&#x153;Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve seen kids that are not maybe prosperous in other aspects of their schooling that thrive in that environment,â&#x20AC;? Toovey said. Struggling in school is a story thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s all too familiar to Buehl. She

herself is dyslexic. Unlike her own students, Buehl grew up in a time when not much was known about dyslexia, and children who suffered from it didnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t get the help they needed in school. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I had teachers tell me I was so stupid I would never succeed at anything,â&#x20AC;? Buehl recalled. â&#x20AC;&#x153;They had me standing in corners and all kinds of stuff.â&#x20AC;? But art class was where Buehl thrived, and to this day she credits an art teacher she had in fifth and sixth grade with turning her life around. â&#x20AC;&#x153;(She) kept me alive. â&#x20AC;Ś She provided a venue for me to show my abilities, and I never had that before,â&#x20AC;? Buehl said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Art is such a good tool for self-esteem.â&#x20AC;? Eventually Buehl graduated high school with a C average and went on to earn a bachelorâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s degree in art education as well as a masterâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s degree in drawing. In the late 1980s, as an artist who taught summer camps for Vashon Allied Arts, Buehl approached the superintendent of the Vashon Island School District, which at

the time did not have a dedicated elementary art teacher. â&#x20AC;&#x153;All my life I had been one of the those kids on the margin, and art spoke to me. I said, â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;I want to know who is speaking for those children.â&#x20AC;&#x2122; I said, â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;Hire me, and Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ll push a cart.â&#x20AC;&#x2122;â&#x20AC;? Buehl did push a cart at first, and eventually got her own classroom. Early on in her career she helped spearhead the Vashon Artists in the Schools program, and she has continued to take art classes in her spare time. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I always say you canâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t feed others unless youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re feeding yourself,â&#x20AC;? she said. Over the years, Buehl said, she has seen herself in children who struggle in other subjects but thrive with a paintbrush in their hands. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I make sure I check on them, and I make sure sometimes that they know my story, because itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s huge for them,â&#x20AC;? she said. Retirement is bittersweet for Buehl. Sheâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ll miss teaching dearly, she said, but is looking forward to spending time with her husband and focusing on her own art,

Page 23

which has ranged from drawings of anthropomorphic animals to more expressionistic paintings and prints. While colleagues, parents and students all laud the retiring teacher, she is quick to ward off their praises, saying instead sheâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s been blessed to be able to teach. Last week at a retirement party, teachers presented Buehl with a Native American blanket and thanked her for what sheâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s done at Chautauqua, and Buehl, tearful at times, simply returned their remarks. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I have so much respect for all of you and the work you do with children,â&#x20AC;? she said. Even in the classroom, Buehl says itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s her students who have inspired her. Last year she decided to make felt hats with the children, a huge undertaking. When the the project was finally complete, Beuhl said each hat looked just like the student who made it. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Each child has so much creativity. What is important is you just have to fan their flame,â&#x20AC;? Buehl said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;What am I going to do now? Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m going to fan my own flame.â&#x20AC;?

METRO CONTINUED FROM 1

next year, mostly due to falling revenue from the sales tax. Last year the county council approved a two-year $20 license tab renewal fee that sustained Metro service through next summer. But unless the state Legislature finds a way to fill the deficit when the fee expires, Hansen said, the transit agency will be forced to cut the equivalent of 600,000 service hours county-wide. If cuts are required, the changes will come first to Vashon, the Snoqualmie Valley and Southeast King County, the three rural areas selected for a pilot project. The county will start the process by exploring the elimination of bus trips in the three areas that have the lowest ridership, those in the bottom 25 percent county-wide. On Vashon, those include early morning, mid-day and evening trips on routes 118 and 119. In its 70-page report, the county suggested several ways to meet a communityâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s transportation needs if bus trips are cut and promised community participation will factor into those discussions. For instance, Vanpools, or county-sponsored carpools in Metro vans, are already in use all over the

county. A shuttle subsidized by the county and operated by a local organization could fill in when buses donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t serve. And the countyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Dial-a-Ride Transit vans could serve regular routes and be booked for trips in advance. More unorthodox options in the report include bike renting, car sharing and contracting with school buses to transport adults as well. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re not going to leave people without service,â&#x20AC;? Hansen said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;It might look different, and we hope it will cost less, but they wonâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t be left with nothing.â&#x20AC;? Hansen said the county would determine what options worked best for Vashon through a public feedback process that would likely include multiple public meetings. â&#x20AC;&#x153;If your trip is to get you to a ferry terminal during commute hours, maybe we do something different with a fleet of vans,â&#x20AC;? he said. Hansen said that just because a bus trip has low ridership doesnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t mean it will be cut. He also said the county wouldnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t cut runs if there was significant resistance from Vashon residents. â&#x20AC;&#x153;The plan proposes a process, rather than a table for saying, â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;This route here,â&#x20AC;&#x2122;â&#x20AC;? Hansen said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Metro always has a list of the bottom 25 percent performing routes, and there will always be a compelling reason to not have some of those services eliminated.â&#x20AC;?

About a year ago the county approved the creation of a five-year plan to implement alternative transportation. Metro is now waiting on the county council to approve Metroâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s proposed process for identifying and implementing the bus alternatives. According to Metroâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s plan, submitted to the council last Friday, the agency held several meetings at the beginning of the year to inform and get feedback from representatives of those who may be affected by the new plan. A list of 80 socalled stakeholders the county reached out to included city public works directors, social services providers and representatives of schools and large employers such as Boeing. Vashon, however, was not represented at any of the meetings. VMICCâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Johnson is listed as a stakeholder for Vashon, but he said he was never invited to the meetings and hadnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t even heard of the plan until contacted by The Beachcomber. â&#x20AC;&#x153;That is news to me,â&#x20AC;? he said of the stakeholder meetings. Rochelle Ogershok, a communications specialist with the countyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Department of Transportation, said Johnson should have received multiple emails about the meetings. Johnson said he received a Metro email thanking stakeholders for their involvement but nothing prior to that. Johnson said he was most concerned that there seemed to have been very little communication with Vashon residents about a plan that could significantly alter Metro service on the Island. He said the situation reminded him of the recent installation of rumble strips on Vashon Highway, a decision made by the county with little to no communication with Islanders. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I canâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t speak for everybody, but the vast majority of people I talk to feel like theyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re being ruled by an absentee landlord

Jory Randles Jory passed away on May 28th after a long illness. His kind spirit and gentle nature will be remembered forever by all who knew him. He was very proud of and loved his children and grandchildren very much. Before his illness he was a handyman on Vashon Island and a talented artist, which was visible in the care he took with all the projects he worked on. He also enjoyed gardening, music and restoring old cars and trucks. He graduated Franklin High School in 1968 and received an associate of arts degree from Green River Community College and a Bachelor of Science degree from the University of Oregon and held a teaching certificate. He taught school in Oregon before moving back to the Seattle area and going to work for Boeing Aircraft Company. He loved Puget Sound and spent a lot of time at Alki Beach. His final wish to have his ashes scattered in Puget Sound was carried out by his loving immediate family. He was preceded in passing by his loving mother Audrey. He is survived by his father Jack, children Jason and Jenifer, brother Marty sister Linda, his precious grandchildren Jordan, Janelle, Arden and Foster and many relatives and friends. There will be a celebration of his life on August third at two p.m. at the Kenney Community Room located at 7125 Fauntleroy Way SW, Seattle WA 98136 Gifts of remembrance can be made to the Kenney Foundation at the address above. If you plan to attend the celebration of Joryâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s life please R.S.V.P. in the guest book. Please visit our online guest book at www.islandfuneral.com

who makes decisions that affect you,â&#x20AC;? he said. In April, a large group of county staff came to Vashon to present the new Community Service Area (CSA) program â&#x20AC;&#x201D; a program to engage citizens of unincorporated King County and replace the community council model. At the meeting, staff also gave information on several current and upcoming county projects on the Island. The rumble strip project wasnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t mentioned, Johnson said, and neither was the alternative transportation plan, although both were well under way. The transportation plan was listed briefly in a 16-page document handed out at the meeting. â&#x20AC;&#x153;It seems like the CSA meeting ended up being more about glad-handing and talking about the future than it was actually using the opportunity to inform people,â&#x20AC;? Johnson said. McDermott, however, said he was happy with Metroâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s process in crafting the plan. He said the point of the plan is to involve the public when itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s time to decide on alternatives. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re just beginning the process. We havenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t made decisions about how to provide service on the Island,â&#x20AC;? he said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;You bet weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re going to be on the Island talking to a bunch of stakeholders, the community council, health-

care providers, churches, employers, schools.â&#x20AC;? McDermott noted that a couple evening trips on Vashonâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s line 118 were recently cut. Under the new county plan, he said, something would have replaced those trips. â&#x20AC;&#x153;This is a chance to have a conversation thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s different than just cuts,â&#x20AC;? he said. Johnson said he was looking forward to learning more about the countyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s plan but had a hard time imagining how the proposed alternatives would take the place of bus trips on Vashon. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m willing to be convinced, but I donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t see it,â&#x20AC;? he said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;My guess is a lot of the alternatives they talk about arenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t really feasible for Vashon. Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m getting the sense that this is a cut. People are going to have to find another way to get where theyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re going or ride an earlier route.â&#x20AC;? Hansen, meanwhile, said he hoped Vashon residents would be open to trying lesstraditional ways of getting around. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m expecting people on Vashon might kind of run with this,â&#x20AC;? he said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s an opportunity to do something different and creative. We could do something that no one else does nationwide and if works for (the Vashon) community, yippee.â&#x20AC;? The King County Council is expected to vote on the plan late this summer.

&MFDUSJDBMQSPCMFNT DBVTFUXPIPVTF GJSFTJOPOFXFFL Last Thursday Vashon Island Fire & Rescue (VIFR) responded to a fire at a small home on the 10200 block of Cove Road, where a renter woke to find his bathroom on fire. Investigators later determined that a short in a the bathroomâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s ceiling fan started the blaze, said Capt. Josh Dueweke. After the man opened the bathroom door, fire and smoke did significant damage at the home. However, VIFRâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s quick response time, about three minutes, saved the structure, Dueweke said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t believe itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a total loss,â&#x20AC;? he said. About a week earlier, on Friday, June 15, VIFR was called to a house fire on the 22700 block of Wax Orchard Road, another rental house where a short, this time in a lamp cord, started a fire in a secondstory bedroom. Responders were able to contain the fire to the bedroom. However, there was significant smoke damage, and the renters, a family with four children, were forced to move out. Sally Adam at The Harbor School began a collection for the family; they had no rentersâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; insurance, and many of their personal items were destroyed.

Thanks to all the Vashon angels who helped at celebration My thanks to all the Vashon angels who made the celebration for the elders at my home on May 26 so amazing. Thanks to Dan Brown and Co. for music that made you want to dance; Barb Adams and the Threshold Singers for their songs; and Suzanna Leigh and Carol Wameke who demonstrated tai chi and got everyone in the dance, however they could. Sissel Johannessen brought champagne and Hawaiian orchid leis for the 90-year-olds, my sonin-law Floyd Smith came up from Portland to cook the hot dogs, and other angels packed recyclables magically away. Thanks to those who donated cans of food â&#x20AC;&#x201D; enough to fill five shopping bags, plus more than $450 to aid in the work of the Interfaith Council to Prevent Homelessness. Most of all, thanks to the elders who came up my walkway with canes, walking-sticks, crutches, walkers and in wheelchairs with family, friends, and solo. Margaret Rosser drove herself. All came with smiles, making it a great day! Dorothy Hall-Bauer

Firefighters finish work at a home on Cove Road where a short in a ceiling fan ignited a fire.

WILLIS JACOBUS February 6, 1927 â&#x20AC;&#x201D; June 8, 2012 On June 8th the Pearly Gates opened wide and Heaven gave Willis a heroâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s welcome. His death from a heart attack was a huge shock to all who knew him because he was the youngest 85 year-old you could ever meet. He was an inspiration: able to hike mountain trails, water-ski, and snow ski into his eighties. He was a kind, loving, adventurous, energetic, artistic, hard working man, with a gentle wit. He loved Jesus, his family, the beauty of the Pacific Northwest and the Husky Football Team. His heavenly family was overjoyed to be reunited, but his earthly friends and family will miss him greatly. He was born in Seattle and settled in the Sea-Tac area and attended Highline High School. He enlisted in the Navy during World War II and â&#x20AC;&#x153;fought the Battle of Bremertonâ&#x20AC;?. After the war, he returned to Highline and was able to play football and to court his high school sweetheart, Gwen Phillips. They graduated in 1947. After high school, Willis attended the University of Washington for one year and fulfilled his dream of playing on the Husky Football Team. He moved on to the Burnley School of Art where he was able to refine his God-given artistic talent. After graduating from Burnley, Willis went to work for Pacific Northwest Bell Telephone Company in the capacity of graphic artist. He spent about fifteen years illustrating the telephone directory, travelling all over Washington. After so many years of too much time away from home, he took another position at â&#x20AC;&#x153;Ma Bellâ&#x20AC;? and was able to devote more time to his family. He was an assistant Scout Master and a member of the Snoqualmie Pass Ski Patrol. Willis took early retirement from AT&T in 1985. Willis married Gwen in 1949, and they were together for 46 years until her passing in 1995. Together they raised two children; Bill and Lyn. After he retired, Willis and Gwen became snowbirds and enjoyed many winters in Coolidge Arizona. As a lonely widow, Willis turned to a former neighbor, Annabelle Richards for companionship. Their friendship blossomed and they were married in 2002. They first lived in Eatonville and then moved to Spanaway. They also spent many fun filled and work packed days at â&#x20AC;&#x153;Pancake Heavenâ&#x20AC;?, the Phillipsâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; family retreat, on Vashon Island. Together, they attended as many family birthday parties, weddings and graduations as humanly possible. Willis and Annabelle worshiped at the Eatonville Methodist Church and the Vashon Community Church. He is preceded in death by his wife, Gwen: his son, Bill: his parents â&#x20AC;&#x153;Brickâ&#x20AC;? and Grace: his brother Jerry and his sister, Shirley. He is survived by his wife Annabelle; daughter Lyn Lang (Bruce), daughter in law Cindy Jacobus; Grandchildren Amber Sawicki (Josh), Thea Chavez (Stephen), Billie Reade (Bill), Hunter Jacobus, Sean (Heidi) Lang and Jesse Lang. His stepson Larry Richards (Beryl); nine great grandchildren; his sister Suzanne Gehring (Dick), his brother Dale Jacobus and numerous nieces and nephews. A memorial service celebrating Willisâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; life will be held on July 14th at 2PM at the Vashon Community Church. Island Funeral Service is in charge of arrangements.

Jack Black is a

sweetheart. Spunky and generously proportioned, like his namesake, he is also easy going, relaxed and in no way obnoxious (unlike the original, perhaps). He absolutely adores being petted and is best suited to loving home whose humans appreciate a pet that drools when delighted. Perhaps he should have been named after Robert Palmer, since heâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s clearly addicted to love.

Kiki

was a VIPP cat that recently came back to the shelter when her person went to the nursing home. Kiki is a petite cat that loves nothing more than to sit beside her human and get combed and petted. She would be a great cat for a senior citizen. Kiki came back to VIPP 3/12.

Lilly is a little BIG dog! She is a very cute 3 year old, corgi/large dog mix. She is about 50 lbs and a â&#x20AC;&#x153;low riderâ&#x20AC;? - big body, short legs. Lilly is smart, spirited, and active. She is good with other dogs but would be best in a house with older kids and no cats. Call 206-389-1085 or email dogs@vipp.org to meet this sweetheart! The adoption fee is $125. Follow VIPP on Facebook http://www.facebook.com/pages/ Vashon-Island-Pet-Protectors
