A new sport begins to take hold on Vashon VYFS

director to step down

Paddleboarding started in Hawaii. Now, some here are standing on boards.

By LESLIE BROWN Staff Writer

By NATALIE JOHNSON Staff Writer

When Lollie Groth lived in Maui, she loved to catch waves while surfing with her friends. Now, living in Burton, she says she likes to “walk” on water. Groth is one of a growing number of Islanders who have caught on to an emerging aquatic sport: stand-up paddleboarding. The Vashon Park District has even caught the craze and now offers two paddleboards to rent by the hour at its kayak center. Vashon is the perfect place to paddle, Groth said, as its many harbors and inlets shelter paddlers from the wind and waves. And paddling from her home on the Burton Peninsula, she said, she’s often joined by seals that swim curiously around her. “It’s really sort of calming,” she said. “It’s kind of like walking but on the water, or kayaking except you’re standing up.” Stand-up paddleboarding originated decades ago in Hawaii when surfers began to stand or kneel on their boards and propel themselves with one paddle, sometimes catching waves in the process. The new sport made its way to the

neighbors on each side have gotten boards, too. “Two summers ago there was like one, and now there’s like six,” Croonquist said. “A lot of people are finding out about it.” While many describe paddleboarding as calming and even meditative, Croonquist says it’s also fun to cut through the water fast, and paddling quickly

Ken Maaz, a much-admired administrator who has played a lead role in the social services arena on Vashon, is stepping down from the helm of Vashon Youth & Family Services to take a position as the head of an Enumclaw-based agency. Maaz said it was a difficult decision to leave VYFS, where he has served as the executive director for a little more than two years. But the offer he received from The Ashley House, which runs five residential homes for medically fragile children, was an attractive one, in part because the organization offers health insurance and other benefits. VYFS does not provide health insurance to its employees. And because Maaz has what the insurance industry considers a preexisting condition, he’s been unable to purchase insurance as an individual, he said. “I’m very happy where I am. I love Vashon,” said Maaz, who’s 57. But the offer he received from The Ashley House “was substantial,” he said. “It included

Lollie Groth, who lives part-time on Vashon, says paddlebaording on Quartermaster Harbor is relaxing. mainland United States, and now most surf shops and kayak retailers in the Puget Sound area offer special paddleboards as well. The standing paddlers — sometimes clad in wet suits, other times in no more than a bathing suit — are frequently spotted on Lake Union and at other hot spots for water sports. Some kayak centers even offer classes teaching people how to do yoga and pilates on the floating boards.

In recent years the trend made its way to the quiet shores of Vashon. On calm days, paddlers can often be seen at KVI Beach, Tramp Harbor and Quartermaster Harbor. “It’s becoming more and more popular around where we are,” said Mia Croonquist, a high school rower who lives on inner Quartermaster Harbor. Croonquist’s family has a couple of paddleboards and their

A passenger-only ferry that once served Vashon sank off the coast of Tanzania last week with more than 280 people on board. Zanzibar authorities say that as many as 144 people may have been killed in the accident. The Associated Press reported last Wednesday that the MV Skagit, which served the Vashon to Seattle route until 2009, sank during a regular trip from the eastern African nation to the island of Zanzibar. About 70 passengers were confirmed dead last week, and around 80 were missing

and presumed dead as rescue operations were called off three days after the accident. According to the AP, the Skagit experienced difficulties that day after sailing into strong winds. The Skagit was used by Washington State Ferries from 1990 until 2009, when King County began to provide passenger service between Vashon and downtown Seattle. WSF sold the boat, along with its sister boat the MV Kalama, in 2011. During use by WSF, the Skagit’s capacity was limited to 250

passengers. The Seattle Times reported that the Skagit was supposed to last 25 years, so the boat would have been in the finals years of its useful life. According to the Times, WSF tried to sell the Skagit and the Kalama for $300,000 each, but later sold them together for $400,000. The sinking was the second ferry tragedy in Zanzibar in less than a year. Last September, more than 200 people were killed when another crowded ferry sank while traveling between two islands of Zanzibar.

Several new vendors join Vashon’s thriving Farmers Market By SUSAN RIEMER Staff Writer

The Farmers Market is a busy place each Saturday, when Islanders and visitors alike stop by to peruse a rich array of Island-grown or Island-crafted items, from fresh-picked produce to hand-carved wooden bowls. Sales this year have surpassed previous records, according to market manager Rebecca Wittman, who attributes the success, in part, to the diverse lineup of vendors each week. Several new merchants joined the bustling market this spring, adding to the variety of what is found there, including three businesses offering food good for both body and soul.

Tease Chocolates Colorfully wrapped chocolate bars with exotic names — Geisha’s Pleasure, Salty Mermaid, Spicey Mayan — line the table in front of Islander Julie Farrell at the Tease Chocolates market booth. Samples are at the ready, and truffles are hidden away, keeping cool under the summer sun. The bars are Farrell’s version of some popular choices, she said: Bittersweet chocolate, toffee and salt; milk chocolate with toasted almonds and mild pasilla pepper; dark chocolate, matcha green tea and organic puffed brown rice. Other favorites include

Among the new vendors are Julie Farrell (left), Anu and Birbal Rana (center) and Mary and Richard Thomas (right). pistachio butter crunch and what she calls Ginger Lips, dark chocolate over organic crystallized ginger. “There are only so many ingredients,� she said. “I wanted to come up with my own super delicious versions.� Farrell, a certified chocolatier, began her professional life in Wisconsin as an MBA working for General Electric, where she expected to be for the rest of her life. Fortunately for local chocolate lovers, her life took a different turn, fueled in part by the recession, which landed her at a temp agency. “In 2008, I woke up one day with the thought to do something I love, and that was chocolate,� she said. With that, she enrolled in a certification program, interned at a variety of chocolate-based businesses, including Theo Chocolates in Fremont, and found her way to Vashon in 2011 with

her husband Topher Farrell, who assists with the growing company. They had been living in the former Rainier Brewery in Seattle, which is home to several artists and has its own art walk, for which she made chocolate. “It was a huge hit,� she said. That was the beginning of Tease Chocolates — more of a hobby at the time than a full-fledged business. But with the couple’s move to Vashon, she delved more fully into it, and the business is growing. She now makes her chocolates in the kitchen at Vashon Cohousing, using fair trade chocolate and organic ingredients. In addition to the Farmers Market, her chocolates are available online; soon they will be at Minglement and a Whole Foods store near downtown Seattle. In the coming weeks, she and her husband plan to undertake a bean-to-bar

creation, meaning they will make their own chocolate from beans, sugar and cocoa butter, instead of relying on chocolate purchased from other sources. Only 13 chocolatiers in the country do this, Topher said, and the Farrells already have a name picked out for the finished product: The Dark Arts. “I am not going back to the corporate world,� Farrell said. “I feel like I am realizing my dream.�

Anu Rana’s Healthy Kitchen Sharing a booth with Tease Chocolates each week is Birbal Rana, who sells healthy baked goods made by his wife, Anu Rana. The cookies, bars and assorted treats are all made with nutritious ingredients: nuts, dried fruit and natural sugars from honey, maple syrup and dates. They contain no flour, dairy, sugar,

eggs, soy or preservatives, and are — according to the company’s Facebook page — “junk free and guilt free.� Anu cooks all the time at home, she said, drawing from a variety of countries: Japan, the United States and Nepal, where the couple is from. With two children, she routinely experiments to find a healthy way to feed them, and when there is extra, she shares with her neighbors. “They enjoy my food,� she said. Indeed, friends suggested she sell her treats at the market, and now she offers 13 types of cookies and an assortment of other goods. “I am always making new items all the time,� she said. Sometimes people will stop by the booth, hoping to find a treat they had enjoyed previously, only to find it is not offered in the day’s lineup, and that has

frequently turned out well, too, Birbal said. “They do try the new ones, and they like them,� he said. The Ranas also offer their goods at Minglement, and the company is growing. “We’re getting nice feedback from people,� Birbal said. Anu is a familiar face to many because of her job at Thriftway. Birbal is a hydrologist who works from home. The two have lived on Vashon for almost eight years, they said, and moved to the Island because they have friends here. Looking ahead, they say they will definitely stay at the market through this season and are still working on some aspects of the company, such as packaging their goods. “People like it a lot,� Anu said. “The main thing is that.�

Midlife Crisis Farms

A few miles away from the market, guests who find their way to the home of Richard and Mary Thomson in the Reddings Beach neighborhood are greeted by an abundance of flowering gardens, but a little exploring takes them directly to pens of pigs, including a multitude of frolicking and nursing piglets. The Thomsons will sell some and raise others, in a way that they say is humane for the animals and healthier for humans. Animals raised in large production facilities are often confined to crates. At the Thomson farm, which also includes chickens and sheep, the animals are free to move around outside and eat what they would naturally. “It’s how it is supposed to be,� Richard said. At the market, the


8FEOFTEBZ +VMZ t7BTIPO.BVSZ*TMBOE#FBDIDPNCFS

Thomsons sell their meat, all USDA-slaughtered and butchered off-Island, and to broaden their selection, sell other meat, too, much of it raised locally, including beef from near Olympia and bison from Olympia and Wisconsin. In addition to the animals having a better life when they live outside and graze, the meat is higher quality, they said. Grassfed beef has less cholesterol than beef from grain-fed cows, Richard noted, and both grass-fed beef and lamb taste much better. “I won’t sell anything that has not been pastureraised,� he added. The two come to the market each week and also sell meat directly from their home. Initially, Richard and Mary said they raised animals to provide food for friends and their family, which includes three grown children. It became a natural progression to the work they are doing now, Mary said, which also is fulfilling one of Richard’s longtime dreams. Richard, noting his earlier work included international banking and serving as a general contractor, said, “I’ve always wanted to farm.�

NEWS BRIEFS Island man collapses during festival parade An elderly Islander collapsed while marching in the Strawberry Festival parade and was transported to a Seattle hospital by Vashon medics. The man, a participant in the Color Guard, was carrying a weapon and marching with several others when he started to stagger, said Anthony DeNatale, who rushed out to help him. “I grabbed him and got him to the car,� said DeNatale, who used to work as a volunteer firefighter in Bonney Lake. The man turned to DeNatale

and said, “Thank God you showed up. I said, ‘I’m not going to let you go down,’� DeNatale recalled. George Brown, assistant chief at Vashon Island Fire & Rescue, said the man was taken to a Seattle hospital. Because of confidentiality rules, he couldn’t comment about his condition, except to say he was transported “without further incident.�

County lands to get additional protection King County plans to add five Vashon properties, including its newly acquired site on Maury Island, to a preservation program that would provide the parks and natural areas added environmental protection. An open house to discuss the additions will be held tomorrow from 6 to 7:30 p.m. at Dockton Park.

Page 5

Under the preservation program — an amendment to the county charter overwhelmingly approved by voters in 2009 — the sale of designated properties, or any change in their use, would require a supermajority vote by the King County Council as opposed to a simple majority. Sharon Clausen, a project manager at for the county’s parks department, said the program is like a safeguard, protecting land purchased for conservation from sale or other significant changes. She added that the program doesn’t have any bearing on rules for community use at the parks. “The county wants to keep (this land) in perpetuity, and one way to do that is to make it difficult

to make changes,� she said. “Over time, elected officials change, management changes. This is kind of like a guarantee.�

New marine division chief hired Paul Brodeur, a maritime executive with Washington State Ferries, has been named director of the King County Department of Transportation’s Marine Division. Brodeur is a 32-year maritime industry veteran with 16 years of direct experience working with passengeronly ferry operations. He replaces Scott Davis, who will retire this fall. “Paul brings a wealth of maritime background and experience to our Marine

Division,� Department of Transportation Director Harold Taniguchi said. “As he takes the helm, Paul will oversee many exciting projects, including the acquisition of new vessels and working to secure a replacement dock along the downtown Seattle waterfront.� Brodeur recently completed a three-vessel new construction program ahead of schedule and under budget, according to a news release. His implementation of a biodiesel fuel program for the state ferry fleet received national recognition.

EDITORIAL

Islanders will be affected by the Farm Bill

A matter of insurance

This legislation may seem far away, but its impact will be felt on Vashon

Vashon Youth & Family Services is an excellent organization — the only agency on Vashon that offers a full suite of services to those in need. Indeed, VYFS is probably doing more to keep the safety net intact on Vashon than any other single organization. It’s both ironic and disappointing, then, to learn that the agency hasn’t found a way to put a critical part of that safety net under its own employees. As we learned this week when talking to Ken Maaz about his decision to leave the agency, VYFS doesn’t offer health or dental benefits to any of its employees. If it did, it’s possible Vashon wouldn’t be losing Maaz — arguably the best administrator the organization has ever had — to an off-Island agency that offers a full benefits package. The impact of his departure will be considerable. In his two short years at the helm of VYFS, Maaz has established himself as a strong and strategic leader, not only at his agency but in the broader social services arena on Vashon. VYFS’s failure to provide benefits is not an indictment of the organization. It doesn’t offer health insurance because it can’t afford to. Maaz, meanwhile, a 57-year-old man with a pre-existing condition, can’t purchase it privately. And so it is that VYFS and the director it stands to lose are emblematic of one our nation’s greatest social crises. At the same time, we urge the VYFS board to do all it can to find the funds in its slim budget to provide such benefits. It’s only right that an organization with a mission to foster “a community of emotionally healthy, resourceful families and individuals� ensure that its own employees have access to affordable health care.

The madness of our gun laws In the aftermath of the bloody rampage at a movie theater outside of Denver, Colo., one thing is missing: A collective sense of outrage over this country’s insane inability to regulate and limit gun ownership. Both Pres. Barack Obama and Gov. Mitt Romney offered condolences to the grieving families; both spoke passionately about the horror of the incident. But neither addressed the glaring set of questions that for many of us is front and center. How is it that a young man can purchase 6,000 rounds of ammunition by mail order? How is it that he had an assault rifle, the same high-capacity clips that soldiers use, tear gas and combat gear? And what rational human being could possibly suggest that his ability to purchase what the New York Times called “tools of terror� is what our nation’s founders meant when they crafted the Second Amendment? According to a recent article in The New Yorker, the United States has the highest rate of gun ownership in the world. Yemen is next, with a gun-ownership ratio half of ours. “No civilian population,� wrote Jill Lepore in her article, titled “Battleground America,� “is more powerfully armed.� A strong, effective and misguided gun lobby is largely to blame for this horrific situation, and of course the National Rifle Association is at the heart of that lobby. And the NRA has a presence on Vashon, albeit a quiet and limited one. So while there’s little we can do to shape this distant debate, many of us can take a small step or two.

worse: It would cut $16.5 billion from SNAP. Such a huge cut would eliminate food assistance to 2 to 3 million low-income people and kick some 280,000 children off of the free school meal program, where eligibility is tied to being enrolled in SNAP. The House bill would also reinstate asset tests and eliminate the ability of states to adopt broader eligibility criteria. In Washington, 80,000 people currently receiving SNAP benefits would be dropped from the program. It would also end a state option to coordinate the LowIncome Home Energy Assistance Program (LIHEAP) and food stamp benefits. The cut in this “heat and eat� option alone would equate to 234,000 households in Washington state alone losing about $90 per month in food stamp benefits. On the ground, that means that to qualify for food stamps, your car would have to be market valued at less than $5,000 (regardless of how little equity you may actually have in the vehicle) and you would be penalized and dropped (or not qualify) if you managed to have savings of anything over $2,000. For families needing a hand through a tough spot, temporary job loss or health issues, this is devastating. This is at odds with building strength and resiliency in families to overcome or avoid long term-poverty. The Farm Bill may seem far away and removed from our lives here on Vashon. But in fact, how Congress responds to the 2012 version will greatly affect Vashon residents who are struggling. I talked with some food stamp recipients here in our community about the impacts of even losing $90 per month in benefits on their families (the Senate version). The stories were devastating. If these proposed cuts go through, some of our neighbors will likely go hungry and children will suffer nutritionally, despite the best efforts of our community, our food bank and our various meal programs to ensure everyone has food on their table.

LETTERS TO THE EDITOR Arts Center

One shiny, new building won’t hurt our look

Can I throw a few more words on the fire regarding the proposed Vashon Allied Arts’ performing arts center? Driving Vashon Highway at least once a day and being peripherally aware, I’ve pondered what the brouhaha is all about. This is an Island-long avenue of hodgepodge architecture that really won’t be affected, influenced or upset by one shiny new building. VAA touches and serves this entire community. They are offering a new venue to provide Vashon more of what we all claim to love: artistic expression. Is this loggerhead distinctive? Apparently not. I just read that a four-acre, Frank Gehrydesigned memorial to President Eisenhower in Washington, D.C., which would replace a concrete swath surround-ed by parked cars, has been held up over design conflicts. So hang in there, VAA. From what I see, it’s not personal, it’s process. — Margaret Heffelfinger

New project is welcome

The Drama Dock board of directors strongly supports Vashon Allied Arts’ ongoing

efforts to construct the Vashon Center for the Arts (VCA). Drama Dock is a 36-year-old nonprofit that has worked closely with VAA for many years. We have used its current 100-year-old facility to stage many productions, and the idea of working in a new, modern facility has us ecstatic. Some concerns have been expressed regarding the size of or even the need for such a facility, given that Vashon High School is building a new theater, but there are several reasons why construction of the VCA should proceed. The new Vashon High School facility will be a smaller venue and has been designed primarily as a theater and to meet other school needs. That is how it should be. Vashon Island is blessed with a vibrant community of both visual and performing artists. These individuals provide a range of exhibits and performances — from ballet to drama, opera, sculpture, painting, photography and more. The VCA will provide a home for all of these. It will have a gallery for our visual artists and a 300-seat theater that will be perfect for music, dance and drama of all kinds. The location is centrally located on the main highway, easy for anyone to find. The current VAA center, the Blue Heron, is heavily used for performances and rehearsal space

for drama and dance. Because of its age and design, it is inadequate by anyone’s standards. This opportunity is a great one for Vashon residents, one that will positively affect the entire community for years to come. A facility like this will not only add to the quality of life for our citizens, it will assist the business community as well. — Gaye Detzer, president, Drama Dock board of directors

VHS project

Let’s use extra money to retire bond sooner In regard to The Beachcomber’s article “High school project gets infusion of state money� (July 18), this may be a naive question, but why does the school district feel that the state money will “provide flexibility to spend it on other capital projects,� as an administrator was quoted as saying, projects that failed to get voter approval? Could it not be better used toward paying off the bonds to relieve our taxpayers? — Edra Haynes

American Hero Quilts

Low Tide Celebration

American Hero Quilts sends 100 quilts each month to Afghanistan for those wounded in the war. Recently, because of health concerns, we were not able to pack those quilts up and send them off. EMT Rachel Ehlers, firefighter Joe Wolfe and Capt. Josh Dueweke from Vashon Island Fire & Rescue stepped in recently and hauled the quilts up from their storage space in the wine cellar, boxed them, loaded them in a truck and delivered them to The Country Store, which began the shipping process. Chief Hank Lipe coordinated the whole effort. These folks truly are heroes. Thank you.

A big bouquet of seaflowers to The Beachcomber for the advance publicity for the Low Tide Celebration and in particular for the editorial (“Here’s a way to celebrate today: Head to the Sound,� July 4). We had the best event ever, more people, and more people out on the beach learning about the creatures that can only be seen when the tide is at its lowest. While the local press may be criticised for coverage of controversial matters, it is good for us to recognize it also for positive work, and encouragement to its readers to attend island events, patronize island businesses, and enjoy each other in an island setting. The five tons of sand in the lighthouse is a small price to pay for such a great event. Thanks for the help.

Sue Nebeker, American Hero Quilts

Thank you for your gift Vashon Park District, on July 20, gladly accepted a substantial donation from Islander Sarah S. Church to the reduced fee fund for swimming lessons at the Vashon Pool. Sarah’s donation was accepted in the name of her son, Bryan Lee Coyle, who drowned in 1983 at age 21, trying to save a friend from the choppy waters of Lake Michigan. The friend made it; Bryan did not. Since his passing, Sarah has observed the anniversary of his death by doing something significant on that day. This year, Vashonians who might not otherwise be able to get water safety and swim lessons are the beneficiaries, thanks to Sarah and Bryan...and Sarah has probably saved other mothers from that most dreaded of parental experiences. Susan McCabe, Vashon Park District

Capt. Joe Wubbold

Sincere thanks My sincere thanks to those who wrote for my nomination as grand marshal of the 2012 Vashon Strawberry Festival Parade. I am deeply humbled and grateful to be chosen by the selection committee and privileged to be numbered among former grand marshals. A very special and heartfelt thanks to Linda and Dick Bianchi for their generous sponsorship of the grand marshal and for inviting us to the wonderful “Miss Lucy� dinner at the Vashon Heritage Museum, and then for escorting us in the main parade on Saturday and the car parade on Sunday. It was great fun, and will be a very special memory for my wife Connie and I and our family. Sincerely, Lou Engels, Engels Repair & Towing

on our illegal and useless wars; the egregious fraud and corruption that characterizes our banking system supported by the total dysfunction of our government as it colludes with big money interests, including the mainstream media, to undermine the Constitution, and the so-called American dream, which, for all intents and purposes, is hanging by three fingernails onto the side of a cliff. When I say “dysfunction� I don’t mean that the people who are trying to take over the world and run it to suit themselves are not being successful, I mean our body politic is dysfunctional in the sense that We the People are no longer in control of our own lives. We are now the subjects and not the sovereigns of our own destiny. Our country has been stolen from us. If we want to get it back, voting is not going to be enough. Of course, this is just my opinion. Well, actually, not my opinion exactly. My opinion is that it’s much too complicated to assign blame to any one, two or three things that have brought us to this point of systemic failure. But what I said above is still accurate. We are now a people who live in a world of myth and illusion. Most of us don’t even realize what we’ve lost. Until we do, we’re not likely to take any kind of action that will result in getting it back. Cutting back social programs especially will not help. Please don’t take this as an endorsement for Obama. It most assuredly is not.

Since I restarted the VMICC Land Use and Natural Resources Committee, you have heard about financial aid for septic. I knew the deadline was July 1 and our poorest could not afford to comply so I kept trying to find them help. I first asked King County for financial help with my septic in 1992 when all the other counties involved were helping. The county said they tried and still can’t. Could it have anything to do with protecting their $10,000 septic permits and fees? Now our poorest are being punished and fined $25 per day until they comply. The VMICC board is helping but still there is still no money. I plan to have another meeting to keep trying. I also want to discuss the $350,000 that is available to clean the water. Shellfish gardens qualify for this money and are successfully being used in Chesapeake Bay to clean the water, plus it has brought back lucrative commercial shellfish gardens. Looking at what is going on lately, we have become an island of beggars beholden to King County and they don’t think we deserve much. I say we use their $350,000 and part of our tidelands to clean the water, making sure when we are done with the cleaning we have also built a $1 billion-per-year family shellfish harvest that will independently support both islands forever. With a billion per year there will be no more begging.

What makes the Burton Coffee Stand funny? Check out its b-board

I’m going to let you in on a secret: One of the funniest places on Vashon Island is the Burton Coffee Stand. Is this because of the vicious, back-stabbing repartee that goes on amongst the three resident wise-guy New Yorkers (and their hangers-on) during “Insult Hour� (8 to 9 a.m. daily)? No. Well, OK, maybe to some degree. But as the owner, Kathy, says, “The only people you amuse are each other.� She is, of course, wrong. We have the best comedy routines since the Borscht Belt, and since most of the comedians from that era are dead, no one can challenge us. A visitor strayed into the stand one day some months ago and she confessed: “I feel like I’ve stumbled onto a secret society.� Or perhaps a mental institution. But I digress. No, the funniest thing about the Burton Coffee Stand is its bulletin board, which is attached to the door to Kathy’s sanctum sanctorum of espresso-making, a door which she resolutely closes against the rest of us. It’s for her own protection and we do not hold this against her. Having made this assertion (the one about the bulletin board; are

you still with me here?), let me say that it may take a slightly twisted mind to see the humor. I, personally, have no problem with that. Notices are posted by people announcing events or services of interest to islanders. These are really good people — entrepreneurs, civic organizations and the like — who have no idea how funny they are. For example, from just this week: Pilates For Life. I don’t know about you, but all I can see is a mean-spirited county judge issuing this sentence and the desperate plaintiff screaming, “Nooo, your honor! Please! Not Pilates for Life! Give me the electric chair, but not THAT!� Passport to Pain. I take one look at that poster and I immediately want to sign up. Don’t you? Of course you do. This is apparently

some “sporting eventâ€? in which a group of lunatic sadists have chosen several dozen of the most gruesomely brutal hills on the Island (of which there are many), solely for the entertainment of an even larger group of lunatic masochist bicyclists. What great fun, eh? Oh yeah, sign me up ‌ and while you’re at it, get me an appointment with a knee surgeon. Afghan Raffle. Now, like you, I try to keep up with current events, but I had NO IDEA things had got so bad in Afghanistan that they had to hold a raffle. I thought they were doing just fine in the opium trade, you know? Spanish, Art, and Pie Baking Camp. Wouldn’t you have loved to be in on the meeting that came up with this combo? Here’s someone earnestly saying, “Look, Spanish is America’s second language; we need our children to be able to understand and speak it to be good citizens.â€? And then someone else says, “Yeah, that’s cool, but I think we should add art!â€? (What, piĂąatas?) And someone else says, “I have the perfect idea to top this all off: pie baking!â€? And they all jump up, high fives all around, and yell, “Winner!â€? Remembering Who We Are.

idea who he is. But while all of this week’s postings on the coffee stand’s bulletin board are charming, I have an all-time favorite from some months back: Birthing From Within. I know I’m just a guy and maybe don’t know a lot about this whole process, but correct me if I’m wrong: Isn’t this how it happens anyway?

end, seven days a week. If you snag one of the four brightly painted Adirondack chairs beneath the awning and stay long enough, you’ll see an almost complete cross section of Vashonites, although they come in distinctly segmented waves. For example, between opening at 7 and 8 a.m. on weekdays (opening is 8 a.m. on weekends), the crowd will be drivers of pickups, craftsmen on their way to jobs around the Island and, in season, teachers on their way to Vashon schools. Between 8 and 9, it’s “Insult Hour,� during which several semi-employed or retired local clowns sling barbs at each other for the general amusement of the other patrons (and themselves). Between 9 and 10 a.m., it’s “Mommy Hour,� when the coffee stand is overrun by small children in prams and mothers desperate for adult conversation. And so it goes, wave after wave, until 3 p.m. when the shutters come down and the window is locked for the day. As anchors go, though, none is more firmly set in the historical and emotional strata of Burton than the Harbor Mercantile — not that anyone calls it that. No, it’s simply, “Sandy’s Store.� Established in 1892, it’s the last of what once were 13 general stores on the Island. But one can’t help but think it barely breathed until Sandy Mattara came along in 1977 to slap it into life. Big-hearted and sharp-tongued, Sandy does not simply run the store, she presides. Open Tuesday through Sunday 9 a.m. to 6:30 p.m., the mercantile is the kind of place where you can find anything

you need, short of clothing, fresh meat or fish: hardware for your boat; building supplies for whatever may have broken at home but didn’t warrant a trip up town; canned, packaged and frozen groceries; fresh produce of the sort you always need when more people invite themselves to dinner than you planned and you have to stretch the menu; a sophisticated selection of beer and wine; gourmet ice cream; newspapers and magazines; free biscuits and/or smoked sausage for any dog who happens to wander in, with or without owner; free coffee for the regulars; and free advice from Sandy on almost any subject — political, financial, or personal. If Sandy’s store doesn’t carry it, you probably don’t need it. What’s Burton’s secret? “Simple,â€? Sandy says. “Burton is what Hometown USA use to be: a place where everybody knows their neighbors and everybody gives a damn.â€? Kathy Kush gives her own example. “We have a regular customer who recently has begun to work off-Island and whose incredibly clever dog simply ignores her new Invisible Fence and bolts down to Burton. Everyone knows Lola. They bring her to the coffee stand and someone takes her home again. Everyone cares; everyone pitches in.â€? Lawrence Durrell, the famed travel writer, once wrote, “Different places on the face of the earth have a different vital effluence, different vibration. ‌ Call it what you like. But spirit of place is a great reality.â€? It certainly is in Burton.

Open Air: Flights of fancy at Open Space

Artists will defy gravity at second annual outdoor aerial fest

A

rt and people will go flying through space this weekend at the Open Space for Arts & Community.

On Saturday, the venue will present its second annual edition of Open Air — an event organizers describe as a “light, bright outdoor aerial festival with a splash of circus.� At the same time, audience members will be able to wander indoors to see an adventurous new site-specific sculpture installed in the Grand Hall of the Open Space building. Open Air, scheduled to start at 4 p.m. Saturday, will take place in Open Space’s outdoor meadow, and if it is a clear day, audiences will get a majestic view of Mt. Rainier along with the afternoon’s entertainment. Featured performers — veterans of Moisture Festival and Teatro Zinzanni — will include Kari Podgorski, who performs as the character Miss Sally Pepper. She’ll fly high above the crowd, performing on an trapeze apparatus called the cloud swing. Cherie Carson, from San Francisco’s UpSwing Performance Company, will treat the audience to “Snowbirds,� a rope and harness piece featuring Elizabeth Milne-Kahn and Cara Zeisloft. The piece features stage magic including the illusion of real snow drifting down onto the stage. Local aerialists Janet McAlpin, Lynelle Sjoberg, Lisa Elliot and David Godsey are also on the roster, along with students of all ages including Esther Edelman’s adult students and youth from the UMO School of Physical Arts. Admission to the show is a suggested donation of $8 for adults and $3 for kids, but

organizers said no one will be turned away for lack of funds. Attendees are encouraged to bring blankets for seating, and picnic baskets are also welcome at the event. On Sunday, guest artists Cherie Carson and Kari Podgorski will offer workshops for students age 12 an older, in rope and harness, and cloud swing for beginners, at Open Space. The new site-specific sculpture, “No Conspiracy, It’s Reality,� will also be on view on Saturday, during “Open Air.� The large-scale kinetic art sculpture, by artists Jon Carlson and Dave Olson, is inspired by Rube Goldberg. Open Space staffers promise thrills and chills for viewers as it descends from the space’s rafters, creating noise and excitement on a one-minute journey that features a zipline, bowling balls, chimes, a roller coast ramp, a teeter-totter, and an ascending planet Earth. The artwork was commissioned by Open Space co-founded Janet McAlpin, and funded by a grant from King County’s 4Culture program for site-specific artworks. “Performances� of the sculpture last approximately two minutes, after which time the sculpture will be reset for future performances. Viewings will also take place on First Friday, Aug. 3. —Elizabeth Shepherd Open Space for Arts & Community is located at 18870 103rd Ave S.W. Doors open for Open Air at 3 p.m. Saturday. Visit www. openspacevashon.org for more information and register for Open Air workshops at info@openspacevashon.com.

Guitarist Ken Jacobsen will play a classical guitar concert at 7:30 p.m. Friday at Vashon Island Music’s studio, located above the store. Jacobsen will play music by the Spanish composer Isaac Albeniz, Brazilian music by Heitor Villa-Lobos, a lute suite by J.S. Bach and a new transcription of Erik Satie’s 3 Gymnopedies, featuring Jason Everett on seven-string bass. Admission is $10 for adults and $5 for students.

Several concerts are coming up. So put on your dancing shoes and check out what Vashon has to offer over the coming weeks.

The American Night, a Doors tribute band, will light the night on fire at 9 p.m. Friday at the Red Bicycle Bistro. The concert will include authentic

Those who fancy the old-fashioned art form of a Sunday dinner on the church grounds won’t want to miss St. John Vianney’s annual Salmon Bake, scheduled for 1:30 to 4:30 p.m. on Sunday. The afternoon of alder-cooked salmon and other delicious foods will also include live music by the Vashon band, Loose Change, and plenty of kid’s activities.

STRAWBERRY FESTIVAL 2012 The Grand Parade Vashon’s 2012 Strawberry Festival was kicked off by the Grand Parade, a dazzling and delightful affair that made its way through town Saturday morning under a pleasantly hazy sky. Emma NewbyLetestu with the garden club (left) showed her passion for dirt. A radiant bride, Emily Belshaw, and her son Florian (right) marched in support of Ref. 74, an effort to keep the state’s new gay marriage law intact. And young clowns (above) demonstrated their ability to find their inner calm amid the chaos of crowds and shopping baskets. A few Islanders noted that this year’s parade was completely homegrown. No off-Island groups joined the festivities — making it, they noted, a totally Vashon spectacle. 3BZ1GPSUOFS1IPUP

-FTMJF#SPXO4UBGG1IPUP

As in years past, the parade included artistry, flair and an occasional political statement. Dr. Michael Kappelman (right) was part of a mime group quietly advocating for vaccinations and an end to whooping cough. Bill Jarcho (center), a puppeteer, demonstrated his abilities to tame a huge, wild chicken. And Arlette Moody (far right) danced her way down the street followed by a group of young stilt walkers.

STREET SCENES Art, cars, dances, rides and a new unofficial mayor The festival — a full weekend of fun — included a classic car parade on Sunday, where gleaming Chevys mixed it up with classy T-birds and MGs. Among those in the parade were Lou Engels and his family; Lou, who was spotted in his son’s Impala, was this year’s grand marshal. Music was also a big part of the festival. Musicians of every stripe took to a variety of stages, some pumping out high-octane rock, others performing solo. Several, such as the Portage Fill Big Band (right), got Islanders to their feet. The festival always has something new. This year, that meant a tiny petting zoo next to AJ’s Espresso (far right), where kids could enter a gated area and pet goats, hold a rabbit and cuddle with baby ducks. The festival draws an estimated 30,000 visitors, and this year was no exception. Thanks to balmy weather, the festival was packed. Children ate cotton candy; strawberry sundaes and curly fries were in abundance; booths were stocked with colorful clothes and artful bags; and the Beer Garden stayed open late.

Hilary Emmer (far left) won this year’s unofficial mayor, raising a whopping $7,100 for two causes — the Dental Van, which visits Vashon to provide dental care to children and adults who can’t afford it, and medical vouchers, a new program that offers funds to low-income families to get preventative health care from the provider of their choice. “Think of this as single payer health care for Vashon residents,� she said. Art, meanwhile, was on display at Ober Park, where Vashon artisans sold everything from photographs and jewelry to pottery and origami. One popular spot was Lisa Betz’s stand (left) — a display of colorful mosaic art pieces and jewelry.

Rowing on a lake that until recently was choked with silt and lily pads, the Vashon Island Rowing Club masters dredged up a large shovel-full of hardware at last weekend’s Cascadia Masters Championship in Vancouver, B.C. VIRC rowed to four goldmedal finishes on Burnaby Lake, along with five silvers and three bronze. A highlight of the weekend for VIRC was a dominating performance by the women’s quad, which raised eyebrows along the shore by flying off the line and walking on the field with open water at the sprint. The quad featured Kim Goforth in stroke, with Holly Zapel, Su DeWalt and Lisa Huggenvik. “Conibear (a Seattle team) tried to make a move on us at 500, but we held them off with a surge,� said Huggenvik, who coxed the quad from her bow seat, “and then once I called us up at the 250, we pushed out ahead and that was that.� The most compelling race of the weekend was a parent-child double event, which Chad Magnuson entered with his son Gus, a Vashon juniors champion rower who didn’t even arrive in Vancouver until 3 a.m. Sunday morning due to a lengthy train delay in Seattle. Fatigue was not a factor, however, as the Magnusons staged a furious sprint at 38 strokes per minute to beat a combo in the next lane that featured a member of Canada’s Olympic gold-medal winning eight. “I screwed up our start, but then we led from a hundred meters on,� said Chad, the elder Magnuson. “Gus has so much horsepower, it was a thrill just to keep up with him. I was beaming all the way through the sprint.� Also winning gold at Cascadia was Vashon’s men’s four, with Bruce Morser in stroke, Colby Atwood, Bob Horsley and Ed Zapel, with Vashon juniors freshman

The four Vashon rowers, averaging 55 years old, finished the 1,000-meter course just twohundredths of a second slower than the 35-year-old lineup that won the men’s open four earlier in the day. “Basically, I got soaked during that race,� said Clevenger, who was coxing in her first masters regatta. “It took a while to get the boat together but then it just really moved.� Clevenger, who chose coxing after being inspired by a video of former Vashon junior Olivia Sayvetz (now a sophomore coxswain at Princeton), was busy all weekend. She coxed six medal-winning boats, including second-place finishes in crowded fields for both the Vashon mixed and men’s

eights, along with two other races in which Canadian clubs “borrowed� her services. She also spent hours learning the finer points of how to adjust oars and prep boats under the tutelage of coach Richard Parr. Rounding out Vashon’s gold-medal finishes was a mixed four lineup of Scott Engelhard, Kim Goforth, Holly Zapel and Bob Horsley, who left no doubt on the water that Vashon would not be denied. Another VIRC entry also took third in the same event. “All in all, we had a pretty good weekend,� said Parr. “We’re doing a lot of the basic things right; we just need a lot more time racing.� Parr pointed out that Vashon’s masters haven’t raced since April, but for many of the clubs in attendance, Cascadia was the

culmination of a long racing season. “I’ve really liked what I’ve been seeing in practice,� he said. “Now it’s all about continuing to put it all together out on the race course.� This was the third year for the Cascadia Masters Championship and the first true regatta to be held on Burnaby Lake in Vancouver since 1986. Formerly the site of the Canada Summer Games, it took a recent $20 million dredging project to clear the lake of its invasive vegetation, restoring the site once again into a high-quality rowing venue. Cascadia Registration Coordinator Cinda Ewton said there were more than twice as many total entries for this year’s regatta than the 2011 event.

Hundreds of fast runners, family members cross the Burby finish line By GLENNA MILESON For The Beachcomber

Spectators cheered as former track coach Russ Brazill fired the gun to start the 32nd annual Bill Burby Inspirational Fun Run on Saturday, leaving athletes just enough time to finish the race before heading to the Strawberry Festival Grand Parade. This year nearly 400 people participated in the 10K run, 5K run and 5K walk. Scott Healey, 37, was first across the finish line for the fourth year in a row, winning the overall 5K run with a time of 16:30, a pace of 5:19 per mile. Graham Peet, 15, followed in second place with a time of 16:40 and Jacob Huisingh, 17, took third with a time of 17:05. Shuichi Komatsuzaki, 24, took first in the 10K, finishing in 38:57, a pace of 6:17 per mile. Robert Ripley, 51, placed second with a time of 39:07, followed by Kevin Ross, 39, in third at 39:40. Only a fraction of a second sep-

arated the first and second place winners of the women’s 10K race. With a time of 41:43.2, Christine Mosley, 27, claimed first, and second place went to Carey Lyons, 19, with a time of 41:43.6. Megan Hatch, 26, took third at 44:23. First place in the women’s 5K race went to Michelle Neal, 49, with a time For full race results, see of 21:31. Second next page. place went to Katrina Mares, 28, with a time of 23:24. Kate Cunningham, 41, took third with her time of 24:02. “The Burby� has become a festival tradition for many island families, whether they run, walk or cheer from the sidelines. Neal’s son Alex Williams said he remembers that his mom used to win a lot when he was growing up. “They used to have skis for prizes and when I wanted a new pair I would just tell mom that she should go win a pair for me,�

Neal’s daughter, Enya Pooler, 9, took second in her age group in the 5K behind her friend, Meg Cunningham, also 9. Pooler was easy to spot decked out in hot pink from head to toe. “Dressing crazy makes me feel better,� she said before the race, “I get all pumped up.� Vashon High School volleyball coach and teacher Kara Sears joined in the 5K walk, pushing 17-month-old Colton. Her husband Andy Sears, a VHS basketball coach and teacher, helps organize the event each year. Due to a printing error, sponsor logos did not appear on the back of this year’s T-shirts. “We count on our sponsors to make this event happen,� said Andy Sears, “we want them to know how much we appreciate them and feel awful that this happened.� Proceeds go to support Vashon High School athletics and an annual scholarship for high school athletes.

Scott Healy (282) the 5K winner and Graham Peet (208), who took second in the 5K, run at the beginning of the race. he said. Neal recalls the first time Williams participated in the race. “I carried him in a backpack while I ran,� she said with a laugh.

This year, for the first time since they both started running in the event, Williams edged out his mom in the 5K race, beating her by just under 12 seconds.

medical and dental insurance and will provide me an opportunity to put enough aside for retirement.â&#x20AC;? â&#x20AC;&#x153;It was something I had to do in the interest of my future,â&#x20AC;? Maaz added. News of Maazâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s departure hit some members of Vashonâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s social services community hard. Many admire Maaz, a warm and easy-going man whoâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s considered a sharp and focused administrator as well. He also plays a lead role on Vashon: He heads the Social Services Network, a new coalition of organizations working in concert to ensure a range of Island needs is met. And heâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s on the board of the Chamber of Commerce, the Vashon Island Rotary and K2 Commons. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Losing him is going to be devastating,â&#x20AC;? said Emma Amiad, who heads the Interfaith Council to Prevent Homelessness and is

active in the Social Services Network. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Heâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s been exceptional. Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m sure everything will keep moving forward. Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m just disappointed,â&#x20AC;? she said. Maaz, she added, has shown considerable leadership both at VYFS and on the Social Services Network. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Ken is fearless,â&#x20AC;? she said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;He says what heâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s thinking. He lays out exactly what the path should be. And he doesnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t sweat the small stuff.â&#x20AC;? At VYFS, board members and employees also said they were extremely sorry to see Maaz go. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re deeply disappointed,â&#x20AC;? said George Butler, who chairs the VYFS board. Maaz, he said, has a blend of skills that worked beautifully at VYFS, a complex organization that receives an array of public funds, private funds and fees for services â&#x20AC;&#x201D; all systems that require different kinds of reporting. â&#x20AC;&#x153;It takes someone who can work their way through a fairly complex series of grants and reporting requirements, and thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s one special skill Ken has,â&#x20AC;? Butler said.

Equally important, Butler added, under Maaz staff morale has grown at VYFS, where people are â&#x20AC;&#x153;very hard working and grossly underpaid.â&#x20AC;? â&#x20AC;&#x153;Heâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s an enormous loss. Thereâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s no question about it,â&#x20AC;? Butler said. VYFS, with a budget of $1.15 million and a staff of 10 full-time employees and 15 parttime employees, has grown during Maazâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s brief tenure. It now runs Vashon Kids, a before- and after-school child care program. PlaySpace, in the former YMCA building just north of town, is now owned by VYFS and offers a suite of programs and services. The agency is also more active in the public schools, working closely with administrators on programs to prevent youth substance abuse. And the number of counseling sessions with the agencyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s therapists has increased: In 2009, VYFS provided 3,300 sessions; this year, itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s on track to provide 4,500 sessions, Maaz said. One of its biggest projects involves a federal drug-free communities grant, overseen by a coalition housed at VYFS. Luke

McQuillin, who heads the effort for VYFS, said he, too, is sorry Maaz is leaving but doesnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t think it will hurt the efforts of the coalition, called the Vashon Alliance to Reduce Substance Abuse (VARSA). â&#x20AC;&#x153;Weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re going to miss him greatly. But we wonâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t fall over a cliff,â&#x20AC;? McQuillin said. Maaz came to VYFS in June 2010, drawn here in part because of his strong connections to Vashon. His sister and other family members live here. Indeed, he lived on Vashon for several years while commuting to a job in Tacoma. He now plans to move back to Tacoma â&#x20AC;&#x201D; he owns a condo there â&#x20AC;&#x201D; and will commute to Enumclaw. But he said he hopes that heâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ll be back often, and, when he does, he thinks he might be able to more fully embrace Island life. As VYFSâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s executive director, he said, heâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s worked many weekends and nights. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Vashon has always been a special place to me. ... I hope to come over on weekends and enjoy all the things I love about this place, more than I do now,â&#x20AC;? he said.

makes for good exercise. â&#x20AC;&#x153;You can paddle around and enjoy the calm water, or if you really want to, it can be a great core workout,â&#x20AC;? she said. Islander Wilson Abbot, an avid windsurfer who sometimes sails or kayaks, said that in recent years he has taken to stand-up paddleboarding for its simplicity. Abbott, 64, said he first saw paddleboarders at a beach on Whidbey Island. He likes that paddleboarding doesnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t rely on the wind, he said, and he has found the board he purchased to be much easier to transport than a kayak. His favorite spot to paddle is KVI Beach. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I liked the idea that with paddleboarding I didnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t have to be confined to a cockpit or a kayak,â&#x20AC;? he said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I could stand on it, sit down and paddle or lay on it and float around if I wanted. â&#x20AC;Ś I like the minimalist sort of aspect.â&#x20AC;? Susan McCabe, program director at the Vashon Park District, said that last summer a surprising number of people told the park district they wished they could try paddleboarding at its Jensen Point kayak center. McCabe herself tried paddleboarding in Los Angeles before ordering boards for the district. She called the sport â&#x20AC;&#x153;challenging without being terrifying.â&#x20AC;? â&#x20AC;&#x153;At first I was afraid to fall in,â&#x20AC;? she added. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I fell in once, and after that I had a great time.â&#x20AC;? The kayak centerâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s two new boards â&#x20AC;&#x201D; big and sturdy at 10 and 11 feet long â&#x20AC;&#x201D; have been popular so far, said Pam Wise, who runs the center. Beginners usually stick close to the shore, she said, but sheâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s also been surprised to see paddleboarders keep up with kayakers. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Theyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve been a real happy-making thing for our customers,â&#x20AC;? Wise said. Whatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s most surprising to Wise, though, is the range in ages of paddleboarders. Teens seem to love the boards, she said, but older people get out there as well. Just last week, she said, a man who looked to be in his 70s rented one. â&#x20AC;&#x153;He got on it and went out and had a great time,â&#x20AC;? Wise said. Frequent paddleboarders, however, say they wish more Islanders would join them on the water. Abbott said he hardly ever sees paddlers at Vashon beaches, and Groth said that notices she posted at both CafĂŠ Luna and the Burton Coffee Stand seeking a paddling partner got no responses. â&#x20AC;&#x153;If there were more paddleboarders on the Island, it would be fun to have a race or do something,â&#x20AC;? she said. Croonquist, however, said paddleboarding is still catching on. More and more of her friends, she said, are begging to go out on the boards. â&#x20AC;&#x153;If you donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t have one you donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t really think about it,â&#x20AC;? she said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;But when you see one out there, youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re like, â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;I want to try that.â&#x20AC;&#x2122;â&#x20AC;? The Vashon Kayak Center offers paddleboards to rent for $15 an hour. The cost includes a paddle, wetsuit, leash and lifejacket. The boards can be reserved in advance by calling the kayak center at 463-9257.

Call Today! (800) 388-2527 Chloe is a young girl who had a batch of kittens and was a great mom. She is done with her mothering duties and she is ready to start her new life with her new person. Chloe is a gentle cat who has been used to being around young children. She will always be a petite girl. She keeps her medium length perfectly groomed and she is not a cat that sheds. She loves being picked up and held. She would make a great family pet. Chloe came to VIPP on 5/29/12.

SALE?

This sweet tabby girl was found at the Eernissee Apartments and never claimed by her person. One of our volunteers named her Gretchen. Gretchen is a delightful cat who is very friendly and playful. She copes with the other cats at the shelter but she would love to find a lap all to her own. Gretchen is about 3 or 4 years old and came to VIPP on 6/16/12.

Roger is a gentle well-behaved Labrador mix about 7 years old. He gets along well with the other dogs and walks quietly on the leash but loves to run free on the beach and splash in the waves. He is patient with smaller children and adores teens. Roger must have a SECURELY FENCED YARD; if he is left alone he will try to find you, but he does not bark or cry when left. He is chipped, neutered, and current on all his shots. To learn more about Roger or arrange to visit him, e-mail Joan at jaybecker@aol.com or call 206 463-2608; or Lisa, Info@VIPP.org or 206 389-1085. $125 adoption fee.
