Sheriff’s office threatens to end holiday hydro race Participants say they hope to make the race legal for next year By NATALIE JOHNSON Staff Writer

After receiving a flood of complaints about hydroplanes that race around the Island on the Fourth of July, the sheriff’s office says it will put a stop to the annual event next year unless those involved obtain the proper permit and adhere to marine regulations. “All we’re asking is for them to follow the same rules that everyone else in the county does,” said Sgt. James Knauss, supervisor of the King County Sheriff’s Office’s marine unit. “It’s a cool event that needs to come into the current world of permitting and safety.” Those involved in the race this year say they’ve yet to be contacted by the sheriff ’s office, but they’re open to applying for a permit. They

do, however, have concerns about the insurance requirements and noise and safety regulations that may come along with a permit. “If it’s feasible to continue this in a legal manner, I’m all for it,” said Chris Van Buskirk, a longtime hydroplane racer who ran a boat this year. Van Buskirk said the event was permitted and insured decades ago but worries that meeting the requirements of a permit may be more difficult and costly now. “If they make this a huge thing, that changes everything,” he said. “It almost becomes out of reach for something small, and that is a way for the opposition to get what they want.” Larry Fuller, another longtime racer, agreed. “It’s not like we’re trying to be renegades,” he said. “We’re trying to continue a tradition and have fun. … If they want to have a conversation with people, let’s sit down and talk.” Hydroplanes have been circumnavigating the Island at dawn — first SEE HYDROPLANES, 19

Thai restaurant poised to open

With publishing world in an upheaval, a small press finds its own path By SUSAN RIEMER Staff Writer

Island author Jeanie Davies Okimoto’s children’s book, “Blumpoe the Grumpoe Meets Arnold the Cat,” was about to be made into a TV show in 1990 when Okimoto received word that her publisher would not be reprinting it. The Boston-based Little, Brown and Co. had just been purchased by Time Warner, which was about to issue Madonna’s now infamous book “Sex,” replete with its explicit photos and faux metal cover. Okimoto learned the company was marshaling its resources — even reserving floor space

in the warehouse in support the book’s anticipated sales — and thus not taking on projects it otherwise might have. With the first printing of Okimoto’s book sold out, it seemed fans of Blumpoe the Grumpoe would only be able to watch him on television. But Okimoto had a different vision. “I was disappointed,” she said, “so I decided to do it myself.” Now, more than two decades later, Okimoto is in the midst of her third year at the helm of her own small publishing company, Endicott and Hugh Books, which has released three books this year, including

Owner’s former eatery won praise in Seattle By LESLIE BROWN Staff Writer

Jeanie Davies Okimoto “The Weird World Rolls On,” a book of poetry that features the work of Okimoto’s brother, Roger Davies, whose work she has long wanted to publish, and several poets from Vashon. A reading in recognition of the book’s release will be held on July 18. Okimoto notes that her business — a small, independent press, according to publishing vernacular — is one of many that have SEE PUBLISHER, 9

Three monks in saffroncolored robes chanted a blessing at the new Thai restaurant on Vashon last week while, in the kitchen, another drama quietly played out: The state health inspector was making a final walkthrough, ensuring the small eatery was up to snuff. The restaurant did, indeed, pass the inspection. And based on the smiles on everyone’s faces after the blessing, it, too, was a success. And now, after months of anticipation, May Kitchen + Bar is days away from opening its doors to the public. The new restaurant will

have several invitation-only dinners this week, working out any glitches in the process. It will likely open to the public on Sunday or Monday, ready, the owner and manager believe, for a steady stream of Islanders hungry for Thai food. “The key is in the prep,” said Rod Moore, the manager. “Thai food cooks fast, as long as the prep’s done.” May Chaleoy, the owner, an ebullient Thai woman with hair down to her waist, smiled. “I think I can handle it,” she said. Indeed, Chaleoy comes to her Vashon effort with considerable experience in Thai cooking. After managing a popular Thai eatery in Fremont for two years, she opened a restaurant in Wallingford in 2004 — a business she eventually owned with two other part-

ners. Called simply May, the restaurant garnered considerable praise from Seattle restaurant critics over the years. In 2008, Seattle Magazine named it one of Seattle’s 10 best restaurants — an honor no Thai restaurant, up to that point, had received. Chaleoy came to Vashon two years ago at the invitation of a friend, Tom Schwaegler, helping him manage his property. He’s now a partner in her new business, an undertaking that has taken more than a year to come to fruition. The process has been time-consuming, in part, because of remodeling difficulties, from plumbing challenges to a roof that leaked, both Moore and Chaleoy said. But it’s also SEE RESTAURANT, 13

A group of Islanders working to take over the nonprofit that owns the Mukai farmhouse has applied for a $10,000 grant to fix the home’s deteriorating roof. The group has also created a website describing how one becomes a member of Island Landmarks — a nonprofit founded more than a decade ago — listing the names of its board members and presenting a slide show of the storied home and garden west of Vashon town. Ellen Kritzman, vice president of the newly formed board, said the group decided to apply for the grant at 4Culture’s suggestion. The public agency, which supports a wide range of cultural and historic projects in King County, provided some of the seed money Island Landmarks used to purchase the farmhouse for $300,000 in 2000. Kritzman said board members are concerned about the condition of the roof, which caretaker Ken DeFrang has told them is leaking. What’s more, she said, they want to maintain momentum after their surprise announcement that they’d put together a new

federal government. The original board should have earmarked some of those funds for replacement of the roof, she said. “But it wasn’t done,� she added. Matthews, who said she’s hired Island attorney Bob Krinsky to defend her and the three other board members, will be at the property this summer to paint the house and “stabilize the roof.� “We don’t want to go through another winter with worries about water,� she said. 4Culture, meanwhile, has yet to take an official stance on the dispute but supports the new board’s effort to use the courts to establish its legitimacy, said Flo Lentz, who heads the agency’s historic preservation program. 4Culture has long been concerned about Matthews’ failure to live up to the terms of her $100,000 grant, Lentz said, which included a requirement that the property serve the public interest and be open to the public. Matthews has said she has met the terms of that grant, making the house available to the public by appointment. “If this new board is able to perform and provide those public benefits and meet the requirements of the contract, that would be beneficial to the property and we would like to see that,� Lentz said.

board and a base of membership in an effort to take over a project that appears to be dormant and under the control of an out-ofstate couple. “It’s important to show that we’re moving forward,� Kritzman said. “So many promises were made in the past and nothing happened,� she added. “We’re determined that that will not happen on our watch.� But Mary Matthews, who founded Island Landmarks and now lives in Texas with her husband Nelson Happy, said she was surprised to hear the group is seeking a grant from the county. The new board recently sued Matthews, Happy and Island Landmarks’ two other board members. The lawsuit will likely take months, if not years, to get resolved, Matthews said. “It would amaze me that they would get a grant when they don’t own the property and there’s a lawsuit going on,� she said. “They’re the ones who sued us. And this is in the courts. And the courts will determine whether there’s a new board or not,� she said. Matthews acknowledged that the roof on the farmhouse is in bad shape. It has been, she said, since she bought the historic site 12 years ago with public funds from the county, state and

School board to vote on a $16 million, no-cuts budget By NATALIE JOHNSON Staff Writer

Riding on another successful fundraiser by the schools foundation, the Vashon Island School District is poised to pass a no-cuts budget for the 2012-2013 school year. At a budget hearing tomorrow evening, the school board is expected to approve a $16.1 million spending plan, which includes funds to continue existing programs and replace all retiring teachers. Also before the board is approval of a $30.7 million capital projects budget. The Vashon Island Schools Foundation raised about $426,000 in donations and pledges during its three-month fundraising campaign, falling short of its $500,000 goal. It is still accepting pledges. “It would be good to get up to the halfmillion mark, but we’ve raised most of it,� said Donna Nespor, the foundation’s part-time administrator and a founding board member. She noted that the foundation raised more by July this year than it did last year. About $87,000 came from Island businesses, and about 40 percent of district families donated to the cause. “In this economy, to be able to raise that kind of money, we feel really good about it,� she said. Had the foundation raised the full $500,000, Nespor said, it could have helped more with extracurricular pro-

grams. Fees for sports, elective classes and other programs will increase slightly next year. “We would like to be able to provide more funding to enrichment programs and reduce fees kids have to pay — band, drama, Camp Waskowitz. We did not get to the full goal to do that,� she said. The $16.1 million operating budget, up from $15.5 million last year, also allows the district to extend the high school’s career and technical education (CTE) program to the middle school, increase its reserves, restore donation money spent on operating costs when funds were tight and add the equivalent of two full-time staff positions, something school district business manager Tom Dargel said is to support minor program changes across the district. The district’s capital projects fund saw the largest increase, from $20.3 million to a budgeted $30.7 million. Dargel said the 50 percent increase is to cover construction costs immediately following the completion of the new high school and technology upgrades at other school buildings. Superintendent Michael Soltman, who took a 3 percent, state-mandated pay cut last year, will see his salary, including fringe benefits, increase from $142,027 to $149,350, slightly less than he made two years ago. School principals who took the same cut last year will also see their salaries restored, and teachers who took a 1.9 percent state-mandated pay reduction

will get some of their pay restored. “We want to try and be fair,� said Bob Hennessey, a school board member. “Nobody’s getting any increase (compared to two years ago), but we’re trying to be very sensitive to morale and the reality that people have to make a living.� Dargel said the district would still like to see enrollment increase, bringing more state dollars to the schools. Off-Island enrollment continues to rise, but the budget projects there will be about 20 fewer students in Vashon schools next year. Dargel said Vashon, like many school districts, is seeing a drop in enrollment in lower grades. “We have less input down at the bottom,� he said. “We need more kids.� Dan Chasan, chair of the school board, said he expected the budget to pass with ease. “If the fundraising hadn’t been successful, if the Legislature had cut back schools, if we really had to decide, then you’d see a lot more agonizing,� he said. Hennessey said he hopes to initiate a discussion about funding a summer school program next year. A small, volunteer summer school recently faltered after teachers raised concerns about it being a tutoring program as opposed to summer classes taught by teachers. Hennessey believes the district should offer a full program next summer and said there may be a motion tomorrow to find the money to do so.

Two motorcyclists injured in Fourth of July accident

Two motorcyclists were seriously injured in an accident just outside of Vashon town on the Fourth of July. Their current condition is not known. At about 10 p.m. on Wednesday, a motorcycle collided with another motorcycle at the intersection of S.W. Bank Road and 107th Avenue S.W., said Sgt. Cindi West, a spokesperson for the King County Sheriff’s Office. West said one rider, a 38-year-old man from Vashon, was stopped at the intersection and was pointed southbound on 107th Ave. when he was struck from behind by another motorcycle traveling at a high speed. Both men were thrown across the intersection, West said. The Vashon man was transported via ferry to Harborview for his injuries. The other rider was unconscious after the accident, had to be intubated and was airlifted to the hospital. Some witnesses to the accident said the stopped motorcycle’s lights were not on when it was hit, West said, and the sheriff’s office is investigating the accident. Capt. Josh Dueweke of Vashon Island Fire & Rescue said the motorcycle accident was the only serious incident on the Fourth. No one on Vashon was injured by fireworks, but the department did respond to more brush fires caused by fireworks that usual, he said. The largest ones were on the south end and under one of the cell towers at KVI beach. “We’ve had pretty laid back Fourth of Julys, and yesterday made up for the laid back ones,� Dueweke said.

Dead porpoise found at Sandy Shores

*TMBOEFSUBQQFEUPIFBEQVCMJDEFGFOEFSTPGGJDF

A freshly dead harbor porpoise in pristine condition was found on the beach at Sandy Shores last week. According to Ann Stateler, coordinator of the Vashon Hydrophone Project, such a sighting is rare in the Puget Sound region. The animal was reported to the hydrophone project on Friday. Stateler, in an email to The Beachcomber, said she examined the adult female and found tooth rake marks and old healed injuries, indicating “that the plucky porpoise survived a transient killer whale attack.� The carcass, however, showed no overt signs of recent physical trauma, such as a strike by a ship. The cause of death was not immediately apparent. A thorough necropsy and other lab work will identify factors that contributed to the porpoise’s death, she said. Marine mammal carcasses in excellent condition are highly sought-after for research, she said. Biologists at the National Marine Fisheries Service (NMFS) and the Cascadia Research Collective were notified of the find. A biologist with NMFS’ Northwest Fisheries Science Center came from Seattle to collect the specimen. After decades of decline, the shy harbor porpoise

Chapman, an experienced criminal defense lawyer, worked for nearly a decade as the managing director of the Associated Counsel for the Accused, a nonprofit firm in Seattle that contracts to provide defense services to indigent clients. He stepped down from that position in 2008. He’s also worked as a protem judge for both Pierce and King counties, where he presided over both criminal and civil cases in district and municipal courts. Early on in his career, he

LETTERS TO THE EDITOR

Let the hydroplanes race

VAA Arts Center

The debate over Vashon’s hydroplane race is a classic conflict. Many longtime Islanders love it; it’s a throwback to another time on Vashon, when the Island was an outpost for rugged individualists and working-class heroes who didn’t much care what anyone thought. But the face of the Island has changed in recent years; we’re a bit more like a suburb, and that, too, brings a certain set of attitudes and expectations. Then consider the event: The boats are loud. And the race takes place at an ungodly hour, when those Islanders who have to trudge off to jobs in the city all week get a blessed day off. That some are annoyed is understandable. Even so, our vote here at The Beachcomber is to find a way to let the annual race continue. It’s only one day. It’s a thrilling event for several Islanders — one that’s been taking place for more than 50 years. And while the buzz of their motors has a certain sleep-disrupting pitch, it’s not nearly as loud as the fusillade that marks the highlight of the Fourth for many Islanders, when fireworks explode over Quartermaster Harbor. Surely, we can handle one morning a year when a few Islanders circumnavigate Vashon in small, fast boats, challenging themselves and the elements at a time when the water is calm enough to allow such a race. It’s noteworthy that organizers are willing to get a permit. We hope the King County Sheriff’s Office will work with them to find a way to make this annual tradition comply with county rules. The hydro races are storied part of Vashon, and we’d hate to see them come to an end.

With fundraiser behind us, let’s now start a summer school As we’ve noted before, we believe it’s unfortunate that the Vashon Island School District has to resort to a fundraising drive to keep its programs intact and its staff robust. At the same time, we’d rather embrace a nonprofit foundation that voluntarily raises money on the district’s behalf than witness our schools lose their vitality or strength. So it was with a sigh of relief that we learned that the Vashon Island Public Schools Foundation raised a hefty $426,000 toward the upcoming academic year — enough to help the district keep its programs and staff intact. Now, we hope the school district will tackle another matter: a summer school for kids who are struggling. We often boast about those students who are going off to fine colleges, winning awards or logging one accomplishment after another. We pay scant attention, meanwhile, to students who are falling behind. Let’s take a moment to bask in this spring’s accomplishment, when a fundraising drive proved, once again, that this Island cares mightily about public education. Then let’s hope the school board decides to use some of those dollars to begin a modest summer program — a program as basic and foundational in a good school district as those advanced placement classes young people need to get into good colleges.

7""TQSPKFDUEFTFSWFT BHHSFTTJWFTVQQPSU As a business owner across the street from Vashon Allied Arts for the last 30 years, I have had the pleasure of watching this community-oriented organization grow. After attending informational meetings and seeing the plans for this new project, I wholeheartedly support it. This opportunity to expand the facilities for artistic expression of community artists and students is well worth aggressively supporting. Additionally, meeting the need for a larger and higher quality venue for performing arts is important. When you consider the unique opportunity provided by the large private donations for a project that will positively affect the whole island and surrounding community, supporting this project seems undeniable. For instance, I have recently been fortunate to purchase tickets to some excellent events that were sold out almost immediately. The opportunity lost by the current limited and uncomfortable venue is a concern because of all the wonderful performances, gallery shows and classes that VAA runs for the community. I am looking forward to the completion of this project and continued growth of this vibrant community-oriented service organization. — Thomas Skarshaug

I am writing in regard to Vashon Allied Arts’ proposed new performance center design, which is currently under review at King County. It has been disturbing for me to watch the badly flawed process that led to the building’s design. A letter in last week’s Beachcomber called this process “a model of inclusion.� That is a characterization akin to saying that black is white. A strategy of inclusion is essential to an organization that presents itself as the face of the arts community on Vashon. Instead, the design process we have witnessed has been hierarchical in the extreme, driven by a promise of millions of dollars from a single wealthy patron, with the all-important work of programming and conceptual design of the building done by an exclusive team committed to pushing through their own vision. Emblematic of this approach was removal of a University of Washington student’s design suggestions in a design review for the town after pressure from the executive director. The resulting building is a perfect reflection of this process. It is inappropriately sited. It is an order of magnitude out of scale. And it is not consonant with the foundational goals of VAA. There is a groundswell of disaffection and alienation from VAA shared by many Island artists. It cannot have gone unnoticed by the VAA board; I think to a large degree it is a consequence of the elevated money quest the board has embarked upon in its goal to become a “regional hub for the arts.� I call upon the board to put the permit application on hold, call a series of widely advertised public gatherings and listen to the community’s concerns. So far, mine have been met with barrages of salesmanship and cheerleading. Hectoring, lecturing and salespitch delivery are not tools of inclusion.

In 2006, our Legislature created the Registered Domestic Partners (RDP) system. Then in 2009, Washington voters approved the so-called “Everything But Marriage� law — the law that granted many rights and responsibilities for RDPs. Some people might think that is good enough and our gay and lesbian Island neighbors don’t need marriage. I am here to say that the RDP law is not satisfactory to gay couples who want to marry and does not afford all of the same rights as being married. RDP is not portable to other states (even those that recognize marriage equality), nor does it provide spousal rights found in private contracts (such as health insurance to a “spouse� through one’s employer). Everyone knows and understands what “marriage� means. Marriage says we are family like no other word. I can’t tell you how many times I’ve had to explain to someone what a “registered domestic partner� means. And you know what? In the time of any crises, I shouldn’t have to. After 17 years I simply want to marry my wife. Marriage equality is about love and fairness. Civil unions and RDPs were a step, but they are not the same as marriage and never will be. That which is separate is not equal. Don’t take my word for it, see Brown v. Board of Education. For all Vashon families, help us approve R-74. — Pearce Cobarr

18 hours over six weeks, with homework and assignments. To me, a grade change from a D to a C is justified if the student completes the work and demonstrates proficiency. So much of being able to learn successfully is having confidence in yourself. And sometimes all it takes to gain confidence is being in a relaxed setting with someone who says, “You can do this.� That is what the summer program was about. Seven community members agreed to work as volunteers to help those students who signed up. Last summer I taught eight VHS students geometry. These students had received a D or F during the spring trimester. They came to the class, as many students who struggle do, looking bored and unhappy. By the third week, they were yelling out answers with smiles on their faces. Their attitude changed because our review of the material started to make sense. They understood it and were successful. All these students had their grades raised by one level. And that happened because they put in the extra time and effort to understand subject material they found challenging. I think we owe it to these students to give them a second chance. Many students at VHS struggle in math and English, yet we offer no opportunities for them to catch up during the summer. I am glad three

Teens and alcohol

we don’t want youth to do, but about how we can help them toward finding what they want to do with their lives? I was lucky. I had some men and women in my life who introduced me to remarkable interests and skills that have never left me. I’m 72 now. I didn’t become a “user.� I’m in good health. I continue to write poetry, cut wood and sail boats. I drink a little wine.

use: Take a stand� (July 4). Take a stand. They do, and they urge that parents take a stand against this thing they call alcohol and drug use. “Use� is a loose term, ranging all the way from a glass of beer to a night of vodka. As I understand the article, it would exclude the whole range of “use� as harmful to the health of youth. The piece as a whole is a plea to adults not to allow youth to “use.� What I would have liked to see is some address to the youth themselves, some look at what makes psychological health and what sends youth in that direction. Forbidding usually isn’t a part of it. We’re each born with a hunger for life. It’s possible to encourage and guide that hunger. It’s possible to repress it. Suppose instead we thought not about what

I was disappointed with The Beachcomber’s statement that only in the last few months have a “handful� of Islanders begun to take issue with the county’s failure to secure funding to help landowners who can’t afford to repair failing systems or install new ones. My husband Bill Tobin was chair of the VashonMaury Island Community Council’s septic solutions committee in 2009 and 2010. He took over from Steve Graham. Steve and his committee had been concerned for years about the county’s failure to help homeowners. I worked with Bill on the committee, and one of the first things I did was to call the other counties’ health departments and the state Board of Health, the state Department of Ecology and the state Department

Page 7

of Natural Resources. I learned that the MRA programs in the other counties were going smoothly. My most informative conversation was with the director of the program in Island County. She explained their program for providing financing that had been so successful that they had nearly completed their MRA recovery. I also had a very interesting conversation with the state Board of Health. He said the state was very concerned about King County’s lack of progress. He asked if I had any suggestions. I repeated what we had been telling the county all along, that we need publicly funded, low-interest loans, the same program that had been so successful in the other counties. Carl Sells and the people he is working with are continuing Islanders’ efforts that have been going on for years. Because we are unincorporated, the Vashon community cannot access funds on its own, and we depend entirely on the county to act with good faith toward its citizens, like the other counties are doing. Our elected county representatives have long remained silent on this issue. Why?

Paper wrong to blame landowners

— Susan Tobin

Usually, a good editor takes an objective view and the knowledge they have gained while following an issue for editorials. The Beachcomber has barely covered septic problems this year. The July 1 deadline with the punitive fines made the problem critical and intensified the correspondence to county and state officials. This information was sent to The Loop, The Seattle Times and The Beachcomber. On Wednesday, the Beachcomber was critical of those trying to fix the problem and the victims of the county’s negligence. Don’t blame the VashonMaury Island Community Council. One committee chairman’s frustrated anger at the county elicited an editorial reaction which, with a broad brush, maligned the entire leadership of the VMICC. The Beachcomber shouldn’t shoot the messenger. Saying thank you would be more appropriate. Finally, there is some success. After months of contacting everyone at the county and state levels, insisting they fulfill their obligation to obtain the federal funds available to loan to home owners, an

encouraging email arrived. Ironically, the letter from Dr. Ngosi Oleru, King County Environmental Health Division Director came on Wednesday, the same day as The Beachcomber’s editorial. Islanders with failing septic systems don’t intentionally “dump raw sewage.� Those who have not responded to the county request, and are now being fined $25 per day, care about Puget Sound. Probably they don’t have $30,000 available to fix their septic system. Many homes on Vashon’s shores (as well as along the creeks) were built decades ago before restrictions were imposed. These owners are in danger of losing their property while they try to find funding. That is the issue. Letters may be going out to more homeowners in the future. Let’s hope the county has secured the money. This problem belongs to all Islanders. — Joan Sells

Editor’s Note: The paper has written six stories about the issue this year. All told, the paper has written a dozen stories, three of which ran on the front page, the most recent one in the July 4 issue. 4&&-&55&34 /&951"(&

Deficit

Re: Federeal spending: We’re robbing our grandchildren. Here are a few facts on the enormity of our debt: We see on the news what has happened in Greece and other European countries. There are 27 countries in the European Union. Their total debt is about $13.7 trillion. United States’s debt alone is about $16.6 trillion. Yet Congress is seemingly blind to that and still keeps spending more. President Obama keeps insisting we must enforce the Buffet Rule and tax millionaires at a higher rate. The Congressional Budget Office has reported that would result in $4.7 billion in increased tax revenue per year. If that were collected for the next 250 years, it would result in $1.175 trillion. Guess what? That would not cover the projected Obama budget deficit of $1.2 trillion for 2012 alone. It’s time for new leadership with spending discipline and the courage to make necessary cuts in spending and the social programs and the conviction to push reforms in the tax code and the social programs and entitlements. — Paul Schwartz

Working at home, one remembers what matters most I commute to an office in town five days a week, but with a convincing excuse, my employer allows me to work from home, infrequently and irregularly. I recently spent a day working from home and found that without the distractions of phone calls or gossiping coworkers, I can waste just as much time at home as I do at work, while taking much less time to get there. I work in our library. The library is a quiet place for our family to do our homework, with ceiling-high pine bookshelves crammed with knowledge and several desktop PCs on two dull-gray schoolroom Formica tables amid the shambles of school papers, bills, bike parts, a hamster cage and broken computer equipment in drifted piles. We bought four impossibly hard, steam-formed plywood and welded-steel school chairs and moved a floral-print overstuffed recliner, suitable for reading women’s fiction, into a corner. I had warned the kids that I must have quiet to think important business thoughts while I work from home. At 11 in the morning, dressed simply but effectively in my plaid bathrobe and my dad’s sheepskin slippers, I’ve been surfing the Costco website for lawn furniture for the past hour.

sprouted in recent years, at a time when the world of publishing is changing rapidly. Not long ago, most books were released by large publishing houses, with names familiar to most any book worm: Simon and Schuster, Penguin, Random House, to name a few. That is no longer true, Okimoto said. Indeed, according to the Books in Print database, of the more than 3 million books published in 2010, 2.7 million were published through “non-traditionalâ€? routes. “It’s a wonderful time to be an author,â€? Okimoto said. “You have other avenues. ‌ You don’t have to rely on them (traditional publishers).â€? The trend in publishing is similar to what is happening in the music world, Okimoto said, with musicians releasing their own music and not waiting for recording contracts from big companies. Artistic efforts on that front help on the book front, she noted, and the stigma that had been associated with books printed via non-traditional routes is fading. In fact, many mid-list authors — respected authors lower on the book-selling ladder than Steven King and Anne Rice, for example — have abandoned traditional routes and are “going it on their own,â€? Okimoto said. As this publishing sector grows, awards have also been established to recognize and honor some of the best of the books. Last month, the Independent Book Publishing Professionals Group announced its 2012 Next Generation Indie Book Awards, which leaders in the field bestow on books they believe should reach a wider audience. Okimoto’s book, “Walter’s Muse,â€? a novel set on Vashon that she published earlier this year was awarded third place in the fiction category.

A merry band of thespians takes on Gilbert and Sullivan By ELIZABETH SHEPHERD Arts Editor

M

usical theater, ahoy!

Starting Friday, Island audiences can set sail to experience the supreme silliness and sublime musicality of Gilbert and Sullivan’s “The Pirates of Penzance,� courtesy of more than 30 Island thespians and singers who have been rehearsing the show for months. The comic opera — a Drama Dock production — is being staged at Bethel Church July 13 to 22, with performances running through Strawberry Festival weekend. According to the show’s director, Elizabeth Anthony, audiences are in for a treat. “There is a turn-of-the-century twang to it that is very irreverent,� she said. “Pirates� — a frothy blend of Gilbert’s unlikely tale of tender-hearted pirates, love-struck maidens and a hapless young hero, combined with Sullivan’s intricate and soaring music — has been a hit ever since it opened in New York City in 1879. In New York alone, there have been more than 40 major revivals of the show, the most wellknown of those being a 1980 production starring Kevin Kline, Linda Ronstadt, Rex Smith and Estelle Parsons. The same cast appeared in a 1983 film version of the opera. The show even has a storied history on Vashon Island. It’s the second time “Pirates� has been produced here — Drama Dock mounted the show in 1987, with a decades-younger Elizabeth Anthony at the helm of that production, too. Three other members of that ensemble — Rich Wiley, Sue Weston and Gaye Detzer — are also part of the current production. 3JDIBSE'BSOFS1IPUP For Anthony, directing “Pirates� is a more freewheeling, Gordon Millar (center) as the Pirate King, surrounded by his minions, in Drama Dock’s upcoming production of Gilbert and creative experience this time around. “Gilbert and Sullivan have now been dead for 100 years, Sullivan’s “The Pirates of Penzance.� so we can do whatever we want with the show,� she said with a soaring voice. and Sullivan was as an advisor to a recent Vashon Island with a laugh. “I’m a lot more confident now.� Gordon Millar will bring a Scottish brogue to the role Youth Chorus production of “Pinafore Pirates.� Anthony said that because the show isn’t copyrighted, of the Pirate King, and Lissy Nichols, an accomplished Wiley, who played the Pirate King in the 1987 producshe’s taken a few liberties with the lyrics. young actress, will play against type as Frederic’s lusty old tion and this time is cast as Major General Stanley, said “Gilbert was very contemporary, so I have felt free to nurse Ruth. that Vashon’s theater community has been lucky to have rewrite some stuff,� she said. “It’s sung so fast anyway, Rounding out the cast is a chorus filled with members an artist of Anthony’s caliber around for who cares?� of Drama Dock, Vashon Island Chorale, Vashon Opera, so many years.

Music lovers can head out for a double-header of bands scheduled to play a night of free music, starting at 8:30 p.m. Saturday, at the Red Bicycle Bistro. One of the groups, Fendershine, is an all-Island ensemble made up of Rick Vanselow on guitar, Eric Frith on guitar, Steve Meyer on bass, Kim Thal on violin and Fletcher Andrews on drums. The musicians — who came together after listening to each other play in other Island groups — are known for a lively mix of

original songs and rarely covered rock ‘n’ roll songs. The other band, The Struggles, was formed in 2006. They play punk and rock ‘n’ roll and aim to get audiences on their feet and dancing. Band members include Andrews and three Seattle cohorts. One of the guitarists and vocalists, Dan Cauthorn, is well known throughout the Northwest as an alpinist and author. The Struggles also includes Truc Allen, who plays guitar

and sings, and bass player David Haavik. Expect a high-octane set that includes songs by such icons as The Kinks, The Clash, The Who, Sex Pistols, Green Day and Iggy Pop. The combined show is for all ages until 11 p.m. and 21 and older after that. It’s all part of an ongoing effort by Red Bicycle music coordinator Pete Welch to bring a variety of local bands to the stage of the popular watering hole and sushi spot.

Small creatures and big bangs Independence Day on the Island The Fourth of July on Vashon started and ended loudly. The annual hydroplane race woke many at the crack of dawn (see pages 1 and 14). And fireworks at dusk over Quartermaster Harbor marked the day’s close, as seen in a photo taken from a hill above Dockton. In between, more than 700 Islanders and visitors made their way to Point Robinson for the annual Low Tide Celebration. This year the event took place on the Fourth of July for the first time. Top left, beachgoers at the Low Tide Celebration check out a starfish revealed by the day’s -3.2 tide. Bottom right, several organizations set up informative booths at Point Robinson. Bottom left, visitors to the point take a ride in the Blue Heron, a traditional Salish canoe that tribal members rowed from across the water for the festival.

taken time because of the care Chaleoy has brought to the project, they said. Formerly Heather’s Homegrown CafĂŠ, the small space is now completely paneled in richly hued mahogany and teak, wood that she had shipped from Thailand, where it clad the interior of a 150-year-old home, she said. Artful lamps hang from a timbered ceiling. A U-shaped bar with polished wood counters juts out from the back wall. Chaleoy has kept the process under wraps, wanting the interior — a vast change from its former life as a breakfast-oriented cafĂŠ — to be a surprise. She’s also given great attention to every detail, she said. “I want it to be perfect for Vashon people,â€? she said. “They waited so long.â€? Chaleoy and Moore spoke at Nirvana, the nearby Indian restaurant, where they gathered for a celebratory meal with family, friends and the monks after their morning blessing last week. Chaleoy, 43, talked easily and warmly of her new venture, expressing gratitude toward the people who have helped her and excitement about what lies ahead. She came to the United States from Bangkok 16 years ago at the invitation of a friend and to study at the Washington Academy of Languages in Seattle. She was soon working in Thai restaurants — her first one the then-popular Fremont Noodle House — while pursuing her interest in fashion design and performance production. She attended both the Art Institute of Seattle and Cornish College of the Arts. But the program at Cornish was expensive, and she didn’t finish it, she said. Along the way, however, she learned valuable skills, including painting, lighting and building — skills she’s put to use in the creation of her new restaurant.

-FTMJF#SPXO4UBGG1IPUP

May Chaleoy smiles and bows toward family members and friends after opening a gift from the monks during a blessing ceremony. The monks, including the Venerable Ritthi, left, and the Venerable Priyad, came from the Atammayatarama Buddhist Monastery in Woodinville. “She’s communicating with the electricians, the plumbers,� Moore said. “She knows as much as they do.� It was serendipity that brought Moore into the picture. Moore lived in Thailand for 20 years, returning to the Seattle area a few months ago not sure what he would take on next but wanting to continue to practice his Thai language skills. He came to Vashon to visit a friend two months ago and, while at the Red Bicycle Bistro, ran into a Thai woman and began to talk to her, asking her if she knew anything about a Thai restaurant that was rumored to be in the works. That woman was Chaleoy, and on the spot, she offered to give him and his friend what amounted to a midnight tour of her place.

Moore, who once waited tables at the Four Seasons, is thrilled to be working at May Kitchen + Bar. “Now, I’m going to speak Thai every day,� he said, smiling. The small restaurant — it will seat about 60 — will be open seven days a week, with Chaleoy, a sous chef and Chaleoy’s mother doing all of the cooking and food prep. For the first week, it will serve dinner only; after that, Chaleoy will begin a lunch menu, with a focus on noodle dishes. The menu will offer what she described as fairly traditional Thai food, including local seafood and nightly specials; dinners will be priced at $10 to $25, lunch at $8 to $10. She said she hopes to educate Vashon diners on some of the finer details of authentic

Thai food. The food doesn’t come out all at once, for instance, but, rather, dish by dish; condiments on the table, meanwhile, are used to add to the spiciness and flavor of the food. In another nod to Thai culture, she’ll invite guests into the kitchen to talk to her about her food and see her and her small staff at work. Those who order to-go will come to the back door to get their food, a door that opens to the kitchen. A connection between the dining room and the kitchen is common in restaurants in Thailand, Moore said. For Chaleoy, it will enable her to meet her guests and get feedback. “And that way, people who work in the kitchen don’t feel stuck there,� she said. She hopes her restaurant won’t take away from others on Vashon. In fact, she said, she’s working with Rohit Sharma, owner of Nirvana, a restaurant she likes, helping him with his eatery’s interior design. “We have to support each other,� she said of the restaurateurs on Vashon. Meanwhile, she knows she’ll be exceedingly busy when her doors open in a few days. Many have been asking about the new eatery; she knows there’s a keen interest in her place. But she said she’ll have an excellent staff as well as her mother — who speaks very little English — at her side, and she’s ready for what will come. “If I have my sous chef right next to me and my mother preps, and if I have a dishwasher, I can handle it,� she said. “I’m not worried.�

May Kitchen + Bar will be open 11 a.m. to 9:30 p.m. Sunday to Thursday and until 10 or 10:30 p.m. Friday and Saturday. Its website, still under construction, is www.maykitchen.com. Or call the restaurant at 408-7415.

Do the Burby: Organizers get set for the run

Three boats finish 4th of July hydro race

By GLENNA MILESON For The Beachcomber

By RIK FORSCHMIEDT For The Beachcomber

Five vintage outboard hydroplanes were in the water and running as the sun came up over Quartermaster Harbor on July 4. Four of the tiny boats headed out past Jensen Point at 5:25 a.m. for the traditional circumnavigation of the Island. Evan Mattingly, this year’s winner, returned to Jensen Point 40 minutes and 36 seconds later. Ty Christophersen, the only boat to run the entire length last year, was a few minutes behind Mattingly, and Chris Van Buskirk came in third. Paul Hoffman was almost home when his boat broke down off Dockton Park. Larry Fuller’s engine ran perfectly, but Fuller hadn’t found a propeller that would move the boat fast enough to get up on a plane, so he returned

Evan Mattingly, this year’s winner, gets a hug from fiancee Jennie Sikorski as he displays the perpetual trophy. to shore after the other boats departed. Mattingly said the water was a little bumpy heading north up the east side, but the west side was “like glass.� He said the finish was the first for him in three tries. Between him and his brother Ryan, who was in his supporting crew, it was about six tries for the family before a finish. Christophersen, who ran with borrowed

engine parts last year, said this was a better run and a minute quicker. The annual run, not really a formal race, dates back to the heyday of hydroplane racing in the Northwest when the late Ted Jones, who revolutionized hydroplane design, lived on Vashon and many Islanders were active on the local limited class circuit. Now the few remaining boats are seldom run except in July.

Preparations are under way for the 32nd annual Bill Burby Inspirational Fun Run. The popular run takes place each year on the Saturday morning of the Strawberry Festival, right before the grand parade. Vashon High School track coaches Andy Sears and Kevin Ross continue this community event, which was started more than three decades ago by other high school coaches. This year putting on the race will be a little bit easier, as supplies are now neatly organized in a new shed built by Jefferson Douglas for his Eagle Scout project. “He just did a great job,� Sears said. “Can a shed be beautiful?� Douglas, a junior at VHS, gives credit to Alex DeHaven of Little Foot Structures for support with materials, design and labor. The young men used pulpwood for framing materials and recycled treetops that are usually thrown away. The shed also features a glass door, which Sears hopes will deter break-ins. Ross will mark the race course along the Dilworth loop, a course he laid out several years ago. On race day, Ross will also be on the starting line wearing bib No. 1, an honor he earns each year by being the very first to register online for the event.

'JMF1IPUP

Runners begin the 2011 Bill Burby Inspirational Fun Run. He and his high school teammate, Aaron Burby, have been running in the event since they were high schoolers. The race is named for Burby’s late father, a VHS football coach and one of the original race founders. Ross is also hopeful that he’ll earn that No. 1 by coming in first this year. “It gets a little harder to beat the youngsters, but you got to keep trying,� he said. Sears will be on site hours before the start of the race with volunteers from his basketball team to set up water stations and monitor traffic. He will also be at the starting line, megaphone in hand, to count down the start. Russ Brazill, former VHS track coach and one of the race founders, will fire off the starting gun. The event includes a 10K race, a 5K race and a 5K walk, and has become a tradition for

many Island families. For the coaches, it also provides muchneeded funding to their athletic programs. Sponsorships cover race expenses so proceeds can go directly to support athletics and the annual Burby Wellness scholarship, given to a high school senior who demonstrates commitment to physical fitness.

Tennis lovers turn out for ‘Winebledon’ tournament

Last month the Vashon Tennis Club, a no-fee group of tennis enthusiasts, played two days of intense tennis in the annual Winebledon Tennis Tournament, hosted by the Vashon Winery. On Saturday, June 30, 11 doubles teams played each other in roundrobin fashion, each match consisting of four games. Each team played 40 games to determine seeding for Sunday’s brackets. On Sunday, all teams were assigned to either the winners’ or losers’ bracket, depending on their round-robin record. Emerging as overall victors of this year (pictured from left to right) were Rick Dusette and Eli Stahl over Alan Warneke and Dick Cushing. Winners of the consolation bracket were Tom Skarshaug and Steve Fugate (playing for injured Mike DeBlasi) over Ron Irvine and Greg Parrott.

on New Year’s Day and then on the Fourth of July — for more than half a century. The event has garnered both criticism and praise over the years, with some Islanders complaining about the window-shaking noise the boats make early in the morning and others defending the race, saying it’s an Island institution. Some even call the annual event the beginning of summer. “This is the fabric of Vashon,â€? said Brian Brenno, a multi-generational Islander who has been involved in the race since he was young. He kept time for it this year. “This is the kind of thing that native Islanders bemoan, of changes on Vashon. ‌ If they shut it down, it would be horrible.â€? Brenno said police have threatened to shut down the race before and may have even done so one year, but this is the first time he believes a permitting issue has come up. Knauss, who has been with the marine unit for seven years, said he hadn’t heard of the hydroplane race until last week, when the sheriff’s office received a large number of calls from people complaining about the noise. “It was off the hook this year,â€? he said. Knauss, informed of the complaints, sent deputies from the marine unit to investigate and possibly issue fines at 6:30 a.m. on the Fourth. But by the time they arrived, the race was over. He said that Vashon sheriff’s deputies were aware of the annual event, and he’s not sure why the sheriff’s office hasn’t intervened in the past.

“Maybe it’s just an Island thing that we don’t know about over here in the offices downtown,� he said. Besides not having a marine event permit issued by the county or event insurance, Knauss said the racers definitely break sound ordinances each year and likely break speed limits as well. Often permits for boat races provide exemptions from marine regulations, allowing participants to break speed laws and sound ordinances during the event. Knauss said it’s possible the sheriff’s office will allow the race to carry on as usual, but participants must apply for a permit, explain their plan for safety and work with the county to gain the exemptions. He is now working to contact race participants so they can make a plan for next year. “I would hate to cite people for reckless boating if they could do it safely and legally and have the permit in hand,� he said. Islanders, meanwhile, are speaking up in support of the Fourth of July racers, affectionately called the “hydros� by many. Talk on Facebook has been predominately in support of the race, any many reached by The Beachcomber said they know there are complaints every year but don’t personally know anyone who objects to the races. “I’ve never talked to anyone here who says it’s ridiculous,� said Jeff Raymond, who lives on Quartermaster Harbor “To me, it’s a 50-plus year tradition on the Island, and I’m all for it. It’s one day, and the naysayers can all pound sand for that matter.� Jean Bosch, who lives on Paradise Cove, said she’s been woken by the hydroplanes many times and doesn’t like it, but she would hate to see the race end.

“A lot of people love it,� Bosch said. “I’ve been annoyed by it myself, but I do have a soft spot for it in my heart.� Race participants say they suspect those who call the sheriff’s office to complain may be new to the Island and don’t understand the tradition behind the event. More boats made it around the Island this year, meaning the noise may have been louder. “There are a lot of new faces on Vashon,� Fuller said. “It’s possible they haven’t heard of it.� Knauss said that since one Islander posted the sergeant’s contact information on VashonAll, a popular listserv, he has gotten calls and emails both in support of and complaining about the race. He wasn’t sure how many complained but said that most who were upset said they wouldn’t mind as much if they noise weren’t so early. He believes the sheriff’s office may allow the racers to break noise ordinances but will

ask them to do it later in the day. “That seems to be the main generator of the complaints,� Knauss said. “Maybe there’s some wiggle room there, in the reasonableness of the hour of day.� Chris Van Buskirk, a hydroplane racer who noted that hundreds took posts along the shore to watch the event this year, said he’s willing to apply for a permit, but it would be difficult to hold the race later in the day. The small, light boats, he said, need calm water to operate on. “We can’t really start later because it’s more rough. ... We prefer to keep it the way it’s been for the last 57 years.� For now, racers say they’re waiting to be contacted by the sheriff’s office. They say they can’t imagine the tradition ending, but they’re eager to learn what it would take to make it legal. “I guess we’ll all know at 5:30 next Forth of July, won’t we?� said Van Buskirk.

Edeen Parrish

Edeen Parrish, a resident of Vashon Island since 2002, died on June 15. She was 89. Edeen had a lifelong passion for learning and education. A teacher, librarian, scientist, spiritualist, poet and a dedicated conservationist, she was a world traveler who never met a stranger she couldn’t share with or a rock she didn’t like. She loved the present moment and few things were more important than good conversation and a hot cup of tea. She was a prolific writer of essays, musings and poetry spanning more than six decades. She once said “I am, therefore, I write.� Earlier this year, she published a volume of poetry under the title “Celebrating Life, Sharing the Grief, Trusting the Unknown.� Most recently, she was working on her memoirs. Family was always front and center in her life. She encouraged each to be the best they could be – setting the bar high and celebrating every achievement. A failure was never a failure; it was merely an alternate route to success. She loved folk dancing and met her husband Harry Kirschner when they were both members of the Sno-King Folk Dance Club in Lynnwood, WA. They married in 1993. They were active members of the Unitarian Universalist Fellowship both in Seattle and after moving to Vashon. Family and friends will remember Edeen especially for her irrepressible curiosity, sense of humor, pragmatism and unflagging courage in staring down even the most daunting of life’s challenges. She was born Clara Ella Deen Marlow on January 6, 1923 in Putnam County, Tenn. to William James Carmen and Roxie Edmonds Marlow. After her mother died in 1939, she moved with her father and sister Hazel to California. In 1941 she married James Goforth and the two settled in Ojai to raise three daughters. They were divorced in 1974. She was librarian at Nordhoff, Buena and Ventura High Schools and taught geology at Ventura Community College until she retired in 1979. In 1975, she married Clyde Parrish. After he died in 1979, she moved to Washington to be near her family. She is survived by her husband Harry Kirschner, sister Beverly McKenney of Old Hickory, TN; daughters Jeanne Greatorex of Watsonville, CA, Kimberly Goforth and son-in-law Eric Gill of Vashon, Diana Clarke of Everett, WA; grandchildren Martin and Jeff Greatorex, Christopher and Matthew Wright, Amanda Clarke and Thane and Tate Gill; niece Tamara Steiner of Clayton, CA, and 11 great-grandchildren. Her sister Hazel died in 2001. On July 15 from 2-5 p.m., there will be a Celebration of Life and potluck luncheon for friends and family at Lisabuela Park on the west side of Vashon Island. Please bring your memories and a dish to share. In lieu of flowers, memorial donations can be made to the Vashon Island Unitarian Fellowship. To leave condolences and messages for the family, please visit the online guest book at www.islandfuneral.com.

Usiku

name for Leopard have had their share of adventures in their three short years. Adopted in South Carolina, Usiku and Chui moved with their family to Vashon this past year. In June, their family moved back to their home in Kenya and they were unable to take these two sweet boys with them. Usiku (Siku for short) is magnificent boy. Despite his large size, Siku is really a bit of a coward who has been known to be intimidated by little kittens and big deer. He had a tough time adjusting to the shelter at first but after setting up digs in the shelter bathroom, both Siku and Chui quickly showed the volunteers their real side. Siku loves being petted and he does head bumps for love. He and Chui get along great and are wonderful and mellow cats - they are in our Purrfect Pairings Program where when you adopt one cat, the fee for the second cat is 1/2 off.

Holly

is a beautiful seven year old tri-colored rough-coated collie. She is very friendly, but alert and a good guard dog. Holly loves people and can get along with other dogs, but is an alpha female and would do best in a home with no other pets or small children. Visit VIPP.org or call 206707-2218 to find out more about Holly or meet her. $125 adoption fee. Follow VIPP on Facebook http://www.facebook.com/pages/ Vashon-Island-Pet-Protectors
