A NEW SHOP IN BURTON OFFERS ART FOR THE HOME

A hearing to get Center declared a historic district drew a standing-room-only crowd of Islanders Thursday night, many of whom said they feared the designation could impede Vashon Allied Arts’ plans for a new performing arts center at the storied intersection. Others said it was unnecessary, contending landowners have already demonstrated an ability to care for their historic buildings and that a designation would stand in the way of their rights as property owners. “What you want us to preserve is what the property owners have already preserved,” Jim Stewart, the coffee magnate who owns the Vashon Island Coffee Roasterie building, told the King County Landmarks Commission. “Vashon Islanders are different,” he added to applause. “It’s not like the rest of King County.” Jeanne Dougherty, another Islander, said the designation nomination lacked community support and “kind of stinks of a monkey wrench thrown at VAA.” “We all love Center. We all love historic buildings. We all drive past it a couple times a day,” she said. “The point is how this is being done.” The spirited, two-and-a-half hour gathering before six members of the nine-member panel ended with the commission saying it would continue the hearing in two months. The commission also announced that it would turn to the county prosecutor for a legal interpretation of the code that governs historic designations, after a lawyer hired by VAA said she believed the commissioners were failing to apply it correctly. “We’d like to postpone our decision SEE HISTORIC DISTRICT, 17

District 19 proposes new well for schools

Natalie Johnson/Staff Photo

Kassana Holden, shown with her dog Lucky, plans to open her new business, Bergamot Studio and Bergamot Home, at the Masonic Temple in Burton during Friday night’s art walk. The gallery combines her textile design studio and her small retail shop, where she’ll feature her textile products, paper goods, furnishings, lamps and decor. The store also opens with artwork by Mary Margaret Briggs. See page 14 for a story.

Water District 19 hopes to dig a well on the Vashon School District campus, a move that would give the school district a break on its high water bills and free up water the agency could then issue to those on its lengthy waiting list. Steve Haworth, president of the Water District 19 board, said the shallow well proposed for the northeast corner of the campus near McMurray Middle School would pose no risk of inflating customer rates as past projects have. Haworth presented the proposal at Thursday’s Vashon School Board meeting. “We think it’s a win for you — we think it’s a win for us,” Haworth told the five-person board. The school board will discuss the proposal at its Oct. 11 meeting and might vote on it as early as Oct. 25. Under the proposal, the water district would cover 75 percent of the cost of the new well — estimated at $250,000 to $400,000 — and the school district would cover 25 percent, up to $75,000. In return the school district, the SEE WELL, 23

Park district seeks help as it faces future with fewer funds By LESLIE BROWN Staff Writer

The board governing the Vashon Park District plans to turn to the community for suggestions and support in figuring out how to address its ongoing financial difficulties, a budget picture that is likely to get bleaker in 2013. At a well-attended meeting last week, board Chair Bill Ameling said the district will see a significant reduction in its budget next year due to lower property values — a drop in levy revenue from $1.3 million to $960,000. As a result, he said, “The park district can-

not be all things to all people, like it was. … We have to find a way to share this burden.” Later in the meeting, he added: “This park district started on $34,000, and everyone was happy. I’m sure we can make everyone happy with $960,000.” Exactly how the commission will engage Vashon’s many park users, however, was not decided at Tuesday’s meeting. Commissioner David Hackett suggested public hearings, while Ameling wanted to have the five commissioners meet with various park-related organizations — from sports clubs to — to see where they might be able to help off-set

the district’s declining revenue. Others in the audience said little discussion should occur until the park district’s financial picture and annual budget become clearer. “You can’t make any decisions if you don’t have the numbers,” Linda Coldiron, a community member, said after the commission acknowledged it didn’t know how much it would save if it closed the skate park for the remainder of the year. “It’s not sufficiently precise.” The back-and-forth came in the midst of a SEE PARK DISTRICT, 23

King County Executive Dow Constantine has put forward a $684 million spending plan for the 2013 fiscal year, a budget that he says includes millions of dollars in efficiencies and cost reductions without sparing services. But declining revenue to support the county’s vast system of roads has led the executive to seek a $20 vehicle license fee in the unincorporated swaths of the county, which includes Vashon Island. Seattle residents currently pay such a fee. “The fee won’t be enough, not by a long shot. ‌ But it can help with critical safety and maintenance needs and keep some crews serving the public. And it’s the only remaining authority we have,â€? he told the King County Council during his budget address on Sept. 24. The $20 fee — levied by way of a Transportation Benefit District — would bring in $4.5 million a year, not nearly enough to address a shortfall that the executive’s office puts at between $50 million and $60 million to care for the county’s 1,500-mile road system. “The system for funding local transportation in Washington state is broken,â€? Constantine added in his address. “Everyone knows it.â€? Councilmember Joe McDermott, who represents Vashon on the county council and will lead the council’s budget deliberations, said he supports Constantine’s call for the car tab fee, noting that the funds it raises will go into road maintenance in unincorporated King County. “It won’t solve the problem. It’ll help to stem the tide. But it won’t turn the tide,â€? he said in an interview Friday.

Quartermaster Waterfront

The county has struggled mightily with its roads and transportation budget in recent years, a financial crisis created by declining revenue for county roads without a commensurate decline in the miles of roads it’s expected to maintain and replace. Declining property values and a decline in gas tax revenues, due in part to more fuelefficient vehicles, have meant fewer tax dollars for the county’s Road Fund. Annexations have also taken a toll: With more of unincorporated King County getting swallowed up into cities, the county’s revenue base for its roads has shrunk, even while it’s expected to care for nearly the same miles of roads. “Roads only get worse as we do more annexations,� McDermott said. All told, the Roads Fund has fallen by 20 percent in the last four years, from $122 million in 2010 to $98 million in 2013. The county is still moving forward on its five-tiered road system, a plan to maintain only those roads in the unincorporated area that are considered main arterials. Other roads would get little to no maintenances and could even face permanent closures. A car tab fee in the unincorporated parts of the county “won’t delay the five-tiered system,� McDermott said. “But it would put more money into the overall system,� enabling the tiered plan to stay into effect, he added. The budget now goes to the county council, which will hold three public hearings on the spending plan — one today in Kent, another on Oct. 10 in Bellevue and a final one on Oct. 17 in Seattle. Day-after coverage of the public hearings will be available both online and on King County TV, seen on Comcast and Broadstripe Cable Channel 22.

Nirvana restaurant has been shuttered recently, undergoing an extensive remodel inside and a complete reinvention of its menu. When the restaurant reopens this Friday, diners will find themselves not in an Indian restaurant, but in a restaurant featuring food from the world over and a lounge and dining area designed, according to owners Rohit and Shivali Sharma, with diners’ comfort in mind. “Every restaurant we go to, the first thing we ask is how comfortable we feel,� Rohit said last week as he stood amid the chaos of an active remodel. “And that’s what we want — for people to feel as comfortable as possible.� Being restaurateurs, naturally, they also want their patrons to eat well. Rohit, 29, bought the restaurant a year ago, and both he and Shivali, 28, said that although the eaterie was doing well, they had come to see that Nirvana was, for many people, a special occasion restaurant and that serving only Indian food was proving limiting. Even as Indians themselves, Shivali said, they do not eat Indian food all that often. Rohit, inf luenced by frequent travels to many parts of the globe, decided to broaden the restaurant’s offerings.

4VTBO3JFNFS4UBGG1IPUP

Rohit and Shivali Sharma say they believe their makeover of Nirvana will result in a restaurant that represents the world. “We want to represent the world,� he said. “Even a fusion restaurant is inaccurate. We’re taking ideas and making them our own.� And so, with the assistance of head chef Robert Erickson, who came to the restaurant last spring first as a patron and then a consultant, the Sharmas are remaking the menu. Erickson has more than 30 years of restaurant experience, including training at the Culinary Institute of America and stints at Maxim’s in Paris and Spago in Los Angeles. Most recently he was the head

chef at the Shelburne Inn on the Washington coast. Under his direction, the restaurant will provide a small number of Indian dishes and will offer several other options as well, including small plates, such as openfaced samosas, asparagus and artichoke fondue and ale-steamed clams, and main dishes, such as cioppino, Tandoori chicken, New York strip loin with an espresso crust and an array of seafood dishes. The quality of the food and the dining experience will be top notch, both the Sharmas say, and the menu will change with the seasons. “You can do a four-star restaurant and be very affordable and unpretentious,� Erickson said. “It’s going to be for everybody. It won’t kill your wallet.� On a recent tour of the restaurant, Rohit noted that the bar, previously in the hallway, has been relocated to the smaller dining room, a lounge that will offer more privacy to both lounge guests and diners. The walls, previously

red, are now painted a deep brown and the ceilings gold, though red accents show up throughout the restaurant, often in large photographs of famous cities throughout the world. Shivali has taken charge of the decorating, including the color scheme. “My wife loves chocolate,� Rohit said, “and she wanted that feeling of comfort.� Both Rohit and Shivali know that several restaurants have preceded them in that space, but they are focused on their own work and future. “A good restaurant with good service and good food at a reasonable price is going to be successful,� Rohit said. Shivali and Rohit, who married this summer, say they are well suited to the tasks at hand. Rohit grew up in California, where his family still owns Indian restaurants, and he worked in them for many years. Shivali, from Vancouver, B.C., has a bachelor’s degree in business administration and worked as a human

resources manager, acquiring skills important to running a restaurant. Rohit attended medical school for three years in Grenada, but left after his father became ill. He will not be going back to medical school, and seated in a corner of Nirvana, he said, “I have found my path.� The path to Nirvana was serendipitous, put in motion by the couple’s parents, who know one another and suggested the two meet. Both opposed the idea, but began emailing — Rohit in California and Shivali in Vancouver. Quickly the emails turned to long phone calls and then a visit in the neutral territory of Seattle, where they took a ferry ride to Vashon and ate at the Spice Route restaurant in the spring of 2011, when that restaurant was for sale. A few months later, the restaurant belonged to Rohit, who opened it Oct. 8 last year and proposed to Shivali in the dining room. Both say they have come to love the Island and believe its best days for food lie ahead. “I think Vashon is going to become something spectacular as far as food is concerned,� Rohit said. The two plan for Nirvana to be part of that transformation. “I’m really excited to see where this goes,� Shivali said. “We’re very confident,� Rohit added. Nirvana will re-open on Friday for dinner; reservations for the first week are recommended. Call 463-4455. After its first week, Nirvana will resume normal hours, including serving lunch and its Pacific Northwest breakfasts on the weekends. It will also be open Mondays, with the chef creating a bar menu for Monday night football.

After some careful thought, Racy, along with stylist Dana Palin, receptionist Monica Knowles-Craft and Islander Donna Knowles, decided to purchase the business. Racy said Studio 101 customers won’t notice any big changes — the full-service salon will still be open six days a week. The new owners, however, will freshen up the interior, and the shop will stay open during the remodel. “We want to give it a more updated look,� Racy said. Beginning Friday, Studio 101 will join the Gallery Cruise and will feature a different artist at the shop each month.

IGA store now under local ownership By LESLIE BROWN Staff Writer

After 12 years of off-Island ownership, Vashon Market is again in local hands. Shawn and Kathy Hoffman, Islanders with deep roots on Vashon, took ownership of the grocery store on Saturday — and spent the day cleaning, purging products with pastdue dates and gearing up for what they say will be a fresh start for the longtime establishment. The Hoffmans have owned Vashon Plaza, the strip of shops that the grocery store has long anchored, since 2005. In an interview at the store on Saturday, shortly after signing the documents that sealed the deal, they said ownership of the grocery store seemed like the next logical step for them, now that their two children are grown and out of the home. It will also be good for the store, they said. Vashon Market had been owned by Don Stolz, a Gig Harbor businessman with four other stores to his name, for the past dozen years. During negotiations for a new lease, the Hoffmans and Stolz were finding it difficult to come to terms. “We wanted someone interested in the community,� Shawn Hoffman said. Now, the couple is already discussing ways they’ll use their ownership to promote local causes and add vibrancy to their corner of town, transforming the large parking lot into a public venue for occasional events.

They also say the store will undergo a significant makeover, becoming what Shawn called “the Red Apple of Vashon Island,� a “value store� that will draw shoppers who now go off-Island to shop at places like Fred Meyer and Safeway. “We’re going to try to give them the confidence that they can shop onIsland,� Shawn said. The new store will be called Vashon Market Fresh IGA, an independently owned store that’s part of the Independent Grocers Alliance, a consortium that offers 215 IGA-label brands, its own distribution companies, shared marketing, training and other support, the Hoffmans said. “It’s not a franchise. It’s more of a marketing group,� Shawn said. The store was an IGA under Stolz as well, he added. But Stolz, whose other four stores were not IGA-affiliated, only carried one IGA product. “He just kept the name,� Shawn said. The store wasn’t losing money under Stolz’s ownership, the Hoffmans added. Even so, they said, they also know it can become a busier and more vibrant place. They plan to make a number of changes — including stocking several new IGA-brand products, adding new displays, painting and design changes and even new cash registers and store uniforms. “We want to clean up the store. We want to do everything we can to give it a better feel,� Shawn said. The Hoffmans are keeping the entire staff, 17 full-time and part-time employees. Only the store’s former manager, Joe Aubrey, opted to leave;

a non-Islander, he said he planned to work for a different store owned by Stoltz. “We need all hands on deck,� Shawn added. The store has had a long presence on Vashon. Built in 1959 by the Kimmel family, it was Vashon’s first and only supermarket until the 1970s, when Norm Mathews built Vashon Thriftway. It was eventually sold to the Becks, another Vashon family that owned it until Stolz bought the store. For the last seven years, the Hoffmans have owned the small shopping complex where the store sits, working to fill some of the other storefronts that emptied during the course of the recession. Now, with the Vashon Library slated to come in for a year during its remodel, other new ventures at the complex and their ownership of the grocery store, the Hoffmans say the small strip mall is close to being fully rented. “It’s a great time for us to be doing this,� Shawn said. Shawn was raised on Vashon and graduated from Vashon High School. He currently serves as the high school’s assistant basketball coach. Kathy is an engineer for PACCAR in Renton, a job she plans to keep. The two said they’re excited to strengthen their connection to the community with their new business venture. “We’re just happy to be a part of the community,� Shawn said. “We want to be involved and give back,� added Kathy.

Forum looks at Island conflict in a new way

A historic designation means stewardship for the future

Pick up The Beachcomber any week and you will read about community conflict. Deep concern for the Island’s well-being, its myriad resources and future potential launches diverse opinion in areas from the Vashon Park District to Vashon Allied Arts, to the Mukai Farmhosue, to rumble strips, to mud bogging and hunting in Island Center Forest, just to name a few. Letters, articles and editorials every week in The Beachcomber “voice� opinions on both sides of many issues, but where is a semblance of actual conversation? Are we listening to each other? All Island Forum invites our community to take up this challenging topic during a forum called “Navigating Conflict: learning about ourselves through differences and disagreements� next Wednesday. The purpose of this initial forum (scheduled in two parts) will be to nurture a sense of safety and trust while we inquire into the nature of conflict and our personal strategies for meeting differences. The second part, to be held in November, will be to introduce skills for civic listening and speaking when there are disagreements or conflict. As part of All Island Forum’s planning group, we decided to first learn more ourselves in a “test run� forum with a small group last June. During this session I discovered some of my own pat-

Property owners within the proposed Center Historical District have some legitimate reasons to oppose such a designation. The most obvious is that it could lower their property values, according to some real estate agents. And after the free fall in prices over the last several years, that’s an understandable concern. But it was troubling to hear several people at the King County Landmarks Commission hearing Thursday night say the designation was unnecessary as evidenced by the care owners have shown for their properties over the years. Indeed, some said, the mere fact that Center is worthy of protection was proof that a designation was not needed. That’s a questionable set of assertions. Center is a rare historic crossroads in King County largely because Vashon has not experienced the immense growth pressure the rest of Pugetopolis has faced. And while commendable, the stewardship this current crop of property owners has shown toward their buildings is not the issue. The issue is the fate these properties will face in the future, when people we now don’t even know own the buildings and when economic pressures we can’t foresee are brought to bear on the Island. Indeed, the message Thursday night — we don’t need King County to tell us how to take care of our properties — sounded like a set of talking points straight out of the conservative wing’s playbook. It also seemed disingenuous on Vashon, where hundreds of Islanders worked mightily over the last decade to try to block Glacier Northwest from exercising its property rights. Vashon was finally successful when a government entity — King County — stepped in, securing the property for future generations. Clearly, many at Thursday’s meeting were motivated by their immense desire to see Vashon Allied Arts succeed in bringing to fruition its plans to build a state-of-the-art performance center at the crossroads south of town. These are good, passionate people who love the arts, who respect VAA, who have been working for years to see Vashon get a decent performance hall. But there, too, it seems the notion of what’s happening is misguided. Some, in comments during the hearing and afterward, suggested a conspiracy was at work: The designation is really an effort to derail VAA, a veiled plan to throw another stumbling block before the project. The effort was brought forward by Duane Dietz, a down-toearth Islander who didn’t show up Thursday because he was feeling profoundly isolated in his effort to get a historic district designated. He doesn’t like VAA’s plans. But there’s no indication that he’s working in concert with others who don’t like it. Finally, some took issue with The Beachcomber’s statement last week that VAA’s permit is vested and can easily remain so. As Rick Wallace pointed out in an email to the paper, a permit won’t be extended beyond two years if construction has not “substantially commenced� and zoning or other applicable laws have changed. These are good points; The Beachcomber did overstate the ease with which a permit could be extended. At the same time, VAA’s project appears to have considerable support and significant donors behind it. It’s hard to imagine it wouldn’t be able to “substantially commence� construction within two years of receiving its permit.

COMMUNICATION By KAREN NELSON terns regarding community conflict, as well as a renewed desire to overcome these patterns. Real questions emerged for me that I was determined to challenge myself about. How do we manage conflict on our island? Can we consider using various models of communication and face-to-face conversation? What will empower us, as individuals, to reach across the gap of disagreement, to learn what “the other side� is trying to say? I began observing my behavior when it comes to conflict. Depending on how passionate or close I am to a topic, like many people, I will fight or run away. I’ve noticed that stepping back and becoming critical is a way that I run away and fight at the same time. Inspired by the test run forum, I took action on a grudge I held against an Island organization. My difference with that group prevented me from empathizing with the humanity of the people involved, and even less, their controversial proposed plans. My head was in the sand. I reached

#FIBWJPSBUNFFUJOH was inappropriate I attended the meeting of the County’s Landmarks Commission on the proposed historic district at Center last Thursday. Most people attending the meeting apparently came with very fixed opposition to the proposal. Comments by both staff and the commission chair were often greeted with derisive laughter, and at the end of the meeting, the questioning of the commissioners was pointed,

angry and rude. Not one person in the room would like to have been treated in the same manner either in their professional capacity or as a volunteer. Many people referred to the collective “we� when expressing their opposition to the project and the commission’s process — how “we� do things differently on this island. I will not be included in that collective “we.� I believe in civil discourse, the opportunity to ask questions in a respectful way, to listen openly to other opinions and be informed by new information.

LETTERS TO THE EDITOR

STAFF PUBLISHER: ADMINISTRATIVE COORDINATOR: CIRCULATION:

across this dehumanizing river of darkness to make personal contact with a leader of the group, where face-to-face, we stood on the common ground of our simple humanity. Having done that necessary personal reflection and action, I am eager to enter an actual, and likely difficult, conversation on the issues. Yet, I don’t see a ready venue nor experience a community habit for that kind of conversation. Once we take the huge first step to hear each other, how do we work toward resolving conflicts? Where does individual responsibility rest in disagreement? Would learning common tools and methods for resolution encourage our community to constructively deal with differences? Conflicts and difference, large and small, are around every corner. If we learn about our personal strategies during conflict, we may discover many things, including tools to help our community move through disagreement toward resolution.

borders on ridicule and divisive clapping have no role in civil discourse. The words we choose, the phrasing we use and our inflection have real power to persuade and alienate. The atmosphere that was created at the hearing made it very difficult for people with different perspectives to speak. The anger and disrespect were palpable and, I hope, not representative of our true Island spirit, nor how we would handle a process that we might design. — Donna Klemka -&55&34$0/5*/6& /&951"(&

We just received the Vashon Community Care flyer that explains their need for the community to help them consolidate their debt so they can refinance their loan and have more cash each month to serve residents. As former Vashon residents, and Carol a former fundraiser and board member of the care center, we are digging deeper to make a substantial gift to help them out. We know the history of the treasured VCC, and we realize how hard the staff and board members have worked to meet the needs of elders through assisted living, skilled nursing, adult day health and now a thriving rehabilitation program. And we know how much time and effort Charlene Boyd and Providence Mount St. Vincent have put into making the facility work so well for Vashon. We see our donation as not only a charitable gift, but also an investment in the future. We urge you to make a gift to the best of your ability. Who knows, maybe we’ll all be needing VCC’s loving care before we know it! — John and Carol Collins

At the Sept. 25 Vashon Park District meeting, it was expressed by the board of the park district that creating a budget for next year is really tough work, and that the VPD board would like the community to tell them where to make cuts and how to spend money. Here’s a suggestion for Vashon: Let’s get a group of people together for this purpose. We could elect them every few years. We could give them legal authority to collect taxes and spend money. — Charles Green

indoor skatepark, the BARC Stewardship Council is taking steps to secure supervision at the park provided by park districtapproved volunteers and initiating the search for alternative funding for its staff and programs. We agree with the Vashon Alliance to Reduce Substance Abuse (VARSA) assessment that this facility is valuable to our community in that it provides an alternative extra-curricular activity for youth who might be considered at risk. The Stewardship Council also feels there is an untapped opportunity to establish a mentorship program between older and younger students, modeled after other successful programs, which could function as another preventative strategy among our youth. — Marc Brown, Nick Ranney, Allison Reid and Jenni Wilke

1BSLCPBSEMPTUTJHIUXIFOJU GPDVTFEPOGJFMETQSPKFDU I have been involved with the Vashon Park District for 20 years, as a park steward and volunteer and as editor of the Paradise Ridge Park master plan. During this time, I’ve watched as the district gradually acquired more parks and we passed levies to give them more tax monies. The commissioners seemed to manage what money they had carefully, trying to support and assist community groups that had ideas for developing and expanding parks or programs. In the last few years, however, the current board seems to have become one with an agenda. Athletic fields, an important resource for the community, have now started to eat the entire funding for the district. Between the contract to maintain the school fields at the district’s expense and the partially completed fields project north of town — a project apparently designed and built by the district itself — huge sums of money have been tied up. Commissioner David Hackett has proposed what amounts to a gutting of the district’s activities to sustain the concentration on fields. In a meeting in mid-September, the commissioners first denied any fiscal problems, then declared their accounting system too complicated for the public to grasp, then claimed that their system was so hard to grasp that they greatly overspent before they realized it, then admitted they were in trouble. At the next meeting they claimed that the economy had ambushed them. Questions from the public were repeatedly described by board Chair Bill

Ameling as “venting.� The commissioners now feel that park users could volunteer to cut back and give more to get the district out of its immediate cash crunch — all without providing more than bare bones numbers to show what they have spent and without guaranteeing that they have actually stopped incurring new fields expenses. This is a dance I call the park board two-step: While claiming to go forward, it only goes sideways. Meanwhile, the public’s investigation into Fieldsgate will continue. — Mary O’Brien

Community Solar

#BDLCPOF$BNQBJHOQSPWJEFT BHSFBUPQQPSUVOJUZ The Backbone Campaign deserves some special thanks for all their hard work getting a community solar project designed and approved to be installed here on our Island. For people like me who had considered putting solar on my home but live in an area with many trees, this project is a perfect way to invest in the alternative energy of solar while partially fulfilling what I consider my environmental and social responsibility. I also like the way Washington state crafted the “opportunity factor� into the

law that created the renewable energy production incentive, thereby keeping savings and jobs locally while benefiting several local participants and investors with the project results. Though it may seem that the solar project return on investment is smaller than hoped, the truth is that these days, many people’s assets are placed in lower returning deposit accounts and investments compared to years past. Being a retired banker, aware of certain global finacial considerations, it is likely we all will be seeing lower yields for some time to come. Backbone’s Community Solar Project offers a way for me to invest considerably less than a home solar unit would cost yet receive a valuable payback and do what I believe is a right choice for my grandchildren. And after all, this plan was never designed as a get-rich scheme to help only the investor. It was created because concerned people like you and me believe that it helps to move us towards the correct direction. I congratulate Bill Moyer and the Backbone team for their effort. I hope those for whom this matches their values invest in a way that is appropriate for them and that our community doesn’t lose this opportunity on all the good work that was done on its behalf. Count me in!

SCENE & HEARD: WALKING FOR AIDS

BY INGRID PETERSONS For The Beachcomber

$PVSUFTZ1IPUP

Part-time Islander Peter Serko’s brother David died of AIDS in 1992, and now Peter is working with a multitude of his friends to tell David’s story and the story of those left behind. Much of the work is being done via Facebook. The goal is to create a performance piece out of the project, which the Tacoma Art Museum is interested in for its 2014 show, “Art, AIDS and America.� Above Serko is joined by Vashon High School teacher Harris Levinson and the school’s Amnesty/Interact Club for the Seattle AIDS walk on Sept. 22. The group will also join Peter in bringing the documentary “United in Anger,� which chronicles Act Up’s struggle to bring attention to the AIDS epidemic, and one of David’s friends, featured in the film, to Vashon to do a question and answer session and talk about that time.

Celebrating Vashon’s Women in Business

This year we are celebrating a momentous occasion in our volunteer organization. As we mark our 25th anniversary, Partners in Education has funded just over $1 million in grants for our Vashon public schools. This small volunteer board was started by concerned community members whose goal was to ask teachers to write grants they felt would most enhance curriculum and stimulate and motivate our children. The board’s composition is in many ways the same, and the goal has not changed. We know teachers understand their classroom needs best. Although any staff member can submit a proposal, most of our grant requests come directly from the teachers. Grants are funded based on creativity, innovation, educational value, need and broad impact on students. In 2011, PIE received $54,000 in donations and funded 43 grants. Grants enabled children at Chautauqua Elementary School to scientifically explore Island forests and paid for playaway audio books. They supported girls at McMurray Middle School attending a

science and technology conference and covered expenses for a field trip to the state Capitol for all eighth graders. At Vashon High School, PIE grants paid for American Studies reference books and debate resources. PIE also funds a portion of the Artists in the Schools program. Visit www.VashonPie.org for a complete list of recent grants. Community volunteers once again will help PIE make calls on Oct. 9, 10 and 11 to request donations. Please answer the call and contribute what you can. As budget cuts continue to affect our public schools, PIE looks for ways to engage children and rekindle teachers’ enthusiasm. Many of our best grants are for lesser dollar amounts. No donation is too small. Your tax-deductible donation can be made online at www.VashonPIE. org or mailed to PIE at P.O. Box 1645. For more information, email Ingrid Petersons at Ingrid.M.Petersons@comcast.net. Thank you, Vashon residents, for attending last month’s Vashon Sheepdog Classic, which benefits PIE, and for your amazing and ongoing support of our public schools. — Ingrid Petersons is the president of PIE.

Vashonistas put art on the runway By ELIZABETH SHEPHERD Arts Editor

L

ast week, while returning to the office after a meeting with members of the local fashion design collective The Vashonistas, I had to slow down and wait for a peacock, of all things, to cross the road. The bird, with its outrageous plumage and iridescent colors, seemed a poetic reminder of what I’d just found out in my interview with some of the Island’s best-dressed people. The Vashonistas, as it turns out, are getting ready to put on quite a show, and it’s happening this Saturday at Open Space for Arts & Community. Dubbed “Fusion,� the evening will boast an elaborate runway show featuring the work of more than a dozen local designers, as well as performances by tango dancers and a world music singer. Audience members can also sip cocktails and nibble on hors d’oeuvres as they go boutique shopping before and after the show. A deejay will provide danceable tunes throughout the evening, and local performing powerhouse Mik Kuhlman will emcee. It’s the fourth time the group — helmed by Islanders Karen Person, Patricia Toovey, Roxy Hathaway, Nancy Scott Wienker, Sally Shivers and Dorothy Dunnicliff — has put on an event of this kind, and each time, the scale has gotten bigger. Their first runway event, in 2007, was held in the Two Wall Gallery, and the next year the show moved to Red Bicycle Bistro. Their last presentation, in 2009, was held at Open Space for Arts & Community, and this weekend they are returning to that massive space. The group’s mission is to showcase what is being created by what they call a world-class community of designers and fabric artists — a group whose clientele and renown reaches far beyond the confines of the Island. “Vashon is getting better known as a center for fiber art and textiles,� said Toovey, a local artist known for her outrageous costumes. “This is a chance to come together and juice it up.� Designers in the spotlight at “Fusion� include Hathaway and Scott-Wienkler, whose company produces handbags made from found materials. Milliner Laura Clampitt will offer a look at her

The youngest designers, Michael Brinker and Marion Ray, are planning a dance-punctuated trip down the runway by more than a dozen models hired to showcase their “leather and stretch� inspired line of clothing. Natural fiber clothing by Marnie Nordling and gowns by Terra Bullock will have their moment in the spotlight. Models will also strut new ensembles by Shivers, whose line is called Wild Life Clothing, and Dunicliff of Dova Silks. Anya Weill, whose company is called Spicy Green Mango, will show what she calls “crosscultural, women-empowered, communitybased clothing and accessories,� and Karen Gelbard will debut new hand-woven jackets and coats reflective of Pacific Northwest landscapes. Toovey has created a “trash fashion, 100 percent recycled lottery dress� for the event and will also supply the closing act of the fashion show — a costume that is being kept under tight wraps by organizers. “Fusion� will have its sexy moments as well Tesse Crocker will debut new one-of-a-kind corsets, reconstructed menswear and other clothing during the show, and Elizabeth Klob

will show off sumptuous evening gowns. The Vashonistas promise something for everyone at the show — fashions for all ages, shapes and sizes. “Our goal is for people to express themselves through their own creativity, which is fashion,� said Hathaway. “This is a more diverse show than something you would see in Seattle, where fashion shows tend to (explore) the same genre,� said Brinker. “There is a sameness there.� Prices for clothing offered in the boutiques, organizers said, will range from $30 for accessories to far more expensive ensembles — a move by the group to ensure that the event appeals to people with varying income levels. In the meantime, the Vashonistas are working hard to ready all their creations. “Everyone is sewing like crazy until the last minute,� said Hathaway. Doors for the show at Open Space for Arts & Community will open at 5:30 p.m. Saturday. Tickets, $50 for catwalk seating and $30 general admission, are on sale at Dova Silks and www.brownpapertickets.com. A portion of the proceeds will go to benefit Vashon Youth and Family Service’s HART program.

Vashon will burst with art for First Friday gallery cruise

T

his Friday the Gallery Cruise will once again bring a diverse mix of art into Vashon’s studios and businesses — painting, sculpture, photography and more by all ages, from budding students to masterful creators. Most galleries open at 6 p.m.

Bergamot Studio and Bergamot Home, a new textile design studio and shop, is having its grand opening in the historic Masonic Temple building, which was the former home of Silverwood Gallery, in Burton. An opening exhibition will feature works by shop owner Kassana Holden and Mary Margaret Briggs, as well as furniture and accessories from Briggs & Company. (For more information, see the story on page 14.) Blooms & Things will display work by Suzanne Britton, a hand-building clay artist whose work has been shown in galleries up and down the West Coast. Her sculpted porcelain clay art is inspired by the beauty and diversity of the Pacific and Northwest coastal beaches and forests. Blue Heron Gallery will exhibit “Dream Lessons,� a show of imaginative mixed media works by Morgan Brig. The show includes almost 50 pieces made of metal, glass, collage and painting — works that explore the strengths and frailties of the human spirit, using metaphor and poetry. The reception will feature live music by Richard Person and Jim Hobson. Brig will also participate in the November VAA Gallery show, “Journeys,� an assemblage exhibition featuring nine Island artists. Common Thread, a shop featuring products by a collaborative of fiber artists, will showcase the work of Jenni Wilke, who will display a collection of outfits inspired by characters from “Alice in Wonderland.� All the clothing is made from recycled materials. Wilke’s clothing line, Just Stuff, consists of clothing that has been “upcycled� from

second-hand or sustainably made clothing. The line encourages people to ask questions, seek out information and actively change their habits when it comes to the consumption of clothing and other products. The Hardware Store Restaurant will host “Just Teens,â€? an exhibit of the photography by students of Ray Pfortner and Christine Beck, who shot images in Vashon Allied Arts teen photography workshop and during McMurray Middle School’s Exploratory Week photography course. Approximately 60 prints by 20 teens will be shown, including images shot at the brand new LeMay Car Museum, Point Definance Zoo, Pike Place Market and other locations. Pfortner said the show “will make almost any adult think hard about how they make photographs — and about taking a class or two to improve their results.â€? Most of the teen photographers will be at the reception on Friday. Heron’s Nest will showcase baskets by Margaret Smith and gourds by Jean Gibbs. Ignition Gallery will display “The Cloud of Unknowing,â€? an exhibit of work by collage artist Tara Snowden. A medieval book with the same title inspired Snowden to create the work. Snowden described the show as “built around images of destruction and psychological portraits of women centered with complex and seamlesss arrangements of images of the natural and manmade world.â€? Mileta Creek Restaurant, at Vashon Golf & Swim Club, will have an exhibit of paintings by Marilyn Blitz. The show will run through November. Snapdragon Bakery and CafĂŠ will exhibit the colorful abstract paintings of Marianne Maksirisombat, a Seattle artist. Examples of her 4503:$0/5*/6&4 /&951"(&

Collages by Tara Snowden, including this one titled “The Poisoned Garden,� will be on display at Ignition Gallery.

Best-selling author and textile artist Kaffe Fassett is returning to the Island next week to teach workshops and lecture about his ground-breaking work and passionate theories about color and design. Fassett, who is known worldwide for his knitting, needlepoint, tapestry, mosaics and quilting, will be joined by his protĂŠgĂŠ and partner Brandon Mably, who has achieved a wide following of his own for his bold, colorful knitwear and books about knitting. Mabley will present a solo workshop on knitting and also join Fassett to deliver two already sold-out workshops about quilting. The pair’s visit to Vashon is sponsored by Island Quilter, Vashon’s destination quilt shop. Shop owner Anja Moritz is excited that the London-based duo has made Vashon their only Northwest stop on a North American tour that includes appearances on the East Coast and the Midwest. “We are thrilled that Kaffe and Brandon have chosen to come and see us again, for the third time in four years,â€? she said. “They said they love the

Island and our store.� Fassett is the author of several book; his latest, “Dreaming in Color,� is an autobiography that tells of his journey from his childhood in Big Sur, Calif., to a jet-setting life as an artist whose many honors include a one-person show at the Victoria and Albert Museum in London and a commission from The Royal Shakespeare Company to co-design “As You Like It,� the opening show of their “Millennium� season. “Strong color feeds into my design work,� Kaffe has written. “Over the years, pattern has become more and more of an obsession. � Kaffe’s lecture is 7 p.m. Thursday, Oct. 11, at the Vashon Theater. Tickets, $17, can be purchased at Island Quilter or the door. A workshop, “Knitting with Brandon: Persian Poppy,� will take place from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. Thursday, Oct. 11, at Island Quilter. The cost is $85, which includes lunch and yarn. Call 713-6000 to register. Two other quilting workshops, led by Fassett and Mabley, are scheduled for Oct. 10 and 12 but are sold out. Call 713-6000 to get on a waiting list.

Vashon’s "Sharing the Stage" series will launch its fourth season at 7:30 p.m. Thursday, with a concert by Zac Anthony and Kate Goldby of the Australian pop band The Wellingtons. The show will take place at Red Bicycle Bistro & Sushi. The series, presented by Islanders Fred Strong, Harris Levinson and Rob Bordner, gives Island youth musicians, poets and other performers a chance to take the stage with acclaimed music acts from the Pacific Northwest and beyond. So far, Sharing the Stage has boasted concerts by Visqueen, Macklemore & Ryan Lewis, Thomas Marriott and the Blue Scholars. A long list of talented Vashon teens have opened the shows. This time around, opening acts will include Skyler Ford, Cameron Sonju, and The Funions, a band made up of Peyton Levin, Duncan Ende, Nick Barber and Tanner Montague. The Wellingtons have released four albums and toured nonstop, winning fans round the globe with such hits as “Come Undone� and “Keep Me Holding On.� It’s the first time on

Burton’s Masonic Temple is brimming with art again as Kassana Holden of Bergamot Home and Bergamot Studio prepares to open to the public on Friday. Holden, a textile designer, has leased the space — the former home of the Silverwood Gallery — and will host a reception during Friday’s art walk. In the shop, patrons will find her work, including throw pillows, scarves, paper products and her signature pendant lamps — along with home decor provided by Briggs and Co. and artwork by Island artist Mary Margaret Briggs, a longtime friend. “It’s such a lovely space to be in,� Holden said last week, showing guests around the shop, “and there’s a nice energy in Burton.� Standing amidst her store’s displays, Holden said she will stock the shop with small, medium and large items, priced accordingly, so that it feels like there is something for everyone. “I don’t want to create an atmosphere here that feels exclusive or not suitable for houses on the Island,� she said. She also plans to include a photography book section, part of her father’s extensive collection, some upholstered pieces — “a little bit reclaimed� — and work by other Island artists. In the rear of the building behind the shop, people will find Holden’s studio space, where she designs her work on a computer and then transfers her images — many of them earth-toned works with a clear botanical influence — onto large-format printers; those printers, in turn, create the textiles, placing the images onto paper, silk, cotton, linen and polyester backlit film, frequently used for signs, but which Holden also uses for her lamps. From her studio, Holden said she can provide services to large companies, such as Eddie Bauer, as well as individuals, including designers who create their own apparel or home furnishings, and crafters, such as quilters, who now can create their own fabric. Holden, a textile designer for 25 years,

She left the company in 2010, and after several years living in Seattle and Southworth, moved to Vashon in March. “It’s been something I’ve been trying to do for 10 years,� she said, standing amid the remodeled space while Briggs hung her artwork on the gallery’s white-washed walls. She moved here particularly for the strong arts community, and after living in Southworth and commuting to Bellevue for many years, she noted she is glad to be living and working in the same community. She now lives just up the road and feels that the Burton community is experiencing a bit of a resurgence, with new businesses, including a pilates studio and The Chop Shop — a hair salon — in place, along with the traditional stalwarts. “I have all the right amount of nervousness,� Holden said about her new endeavor. “I am so excited.� The store will be open from 6 to 9 p.m. Friday for an art walk reception; regular retail hours will be from 11 a.m. to 5 p.m. Thursday through Sunday and by appointment. Holden can be reached most days at the studio at 792-0476.

until we get a clarification,â€? said commission Chair Lauren McCroskey. The proposed designation would make Center the second historic district on Vashon and one of only a handful in King County — a designation that would govern changes property owners could make to certain properties within the boundaries while also providing them access to grants and tax incentives, according to King County’s historic preservation office. In a presentation at the beginning of the hearing, county staff strongly endorsed a historic district at Center, calling it a rare and largely intact crossroads in a county that has seen most of its historic intersections lost to growth and development. “It’s the only crossroads that maintains any integrity,â€? Julie Koler, who heads the county’s small historic preservation office, told the commission. “It’s a rare, rare historic crossroads.â€? Charlie Sundberg, a planner in the county’s historic preservation office, displayed historic and current photographs of the seven buildings within the proposed boundaries, showing how some had changed over time while others retained many of the same features. The buildings, along with the open setting and the simple roadway bisecting it, “contribute to the rural character of this place,â€? he said. “There’s a story there still to be told,â€? he said. But the crowd sometimes snickered during his presentation, especially when he mentioned McFeeds — a building, he said, that wouldn’t “win a beauty contest ‌ but still belongs in the family.â€? Later, when he said the buildings that would make up the historic district had “some integrity issues,â€? someone in the audience could be heard saying, “Some?â€? while others laughed.

Did you know?

Dentists play an important role in cancer care. The life saving benefits of chemotherapy and radiation in cancer treatment are undeniable but they often come with many side effects. Chemotherapy can suppress the immune system and make patients more susceptible to oral infection. Radiation has a detrimental effect on salivary gland cells and can result in severe dry mouth. Without saliva protecting the teeth from acid in the mouth, rampant decay and cavities can develop. Luckily, most of these dental problems are preventable with cleanings, fluoride and specially formulated prescription oral rinses. If you or someone you know is undergoing cancer therapy, a dental appointment early on could prevent many of these potential problems.

Vashon rowers start the season strong By MARIANNE METZ LIPE For The Beachcomber

The Vashon Island Rowing Club had a strongs howing at its first fall season regatta, the Tail of the Lake Regatta, where 12 of the 17 boats VIRC entered placed in the top three. “I was very impressed with the kids,� said assistant coach Tom Kicinski. “They handled themselves well out there and used what we practiced on, especially in the turns.� The unique head race, which took place on Lake Union on Sunday, was a 4k course that began at the Aurora Avenue Bridge, ran to the south end of the lake and looped north to finish at Gas Works Park. Two crews brought home firstplace hardware this year. Shannon Lipe and Hannah Russell in the junior women’s double crossed the finish in 17:12, and the masters women quad, rowed by Marilyn Kleyn, Su DeWalt, Debby Jackson and Kim Goforth also finished first in 15:32. Of the six second-place finishes for Vashon, the most notable was the junior women’s eight, which crossed

the finish just three seconds behind their first-place competitors, who were ranked fifth in the nation at the Junior National Championships in June. Rowing that boat for Vashon were Halimah Griffin, Maya Krah, Taegan Lynch, Emmie Kehoe, Kirsten Girard, Kalie Heffernan, Anna Ripley and Bryn Gilbert, with coxswain Ally Clevenger. Other second-place winners from the junior crew were Isaiah MosserRohe and Eli Sedgemore in the men’s junior double, and Heffernan and Ripley in the women’s open double, a “grade 10� race, as coach Richard Parr described it. “The other clubs have their assumed best double combination of rowers,� Parr said. “For these girls to come in second is pretty impressive.� Emma Dubois, Emily Milbrath, Caprial Turner, Mei Lee Vandervelde and coxswain Olivia Mackie also took second in the women’s novice quad. Kicinski said he was pleased with the entire novice team’s performance at their first regatta. “The girls novice quad did really, really great putting it together,� he said.

Parr agreed. “They did a great job, especially the coxswains with the turns. They did brilliantly.� The competitive men’s masters eight crew finished with an impressive second-place time of 13:20, while a second women’s masters quad came in five seconds behind the VIRC first-place quad at 15:37. “They’ve put in a lot of work, done extra training sessions and it shows,� Parr said. Steve Haworth entered the men’s masters single race and placed third out of field of 12. Haworth then jumped into the masters eight, filling in for an injured rower and racing a total of about five miles that day. Third-place junior wins were in the men’s quad, with Tate Gill, Gus Magnuson, Sedgemore and MosserRohe, in the men’s four, with Charles Elliott, Baxter Call, Nathan Petram, Jack Mask and novice coxswain Ellie Hughes, and in the women’s quad with Gilbert, Anne Gaspers, Mary Lawrence and Kai Li Scheer. — Marianne Metz Lipe is on the publicity committee for the Vashon Island Rowing Club.

Vashon High School hosted a cross-country meet on Thursday, when the Seattle Christian, Cascade Christian and Eatonville teams all came to the Island to race the Pirates on their home course. The 3.1-mile course wound through the high school, middle school and elementary school campuses and included a section of trail recently cleared by the Vashon Forest Stewards. In the girls race, Maddie Groen finished third as she covered the 3.1 miles in 22:54. Other top finishers for the Pirates were Natalie VanDevanter in sixth and Callan Foster in eighth place. Life Christian was the only team with enough girls to officially score as a team, and

it took first by default with a perfect score of 15. For the boys race, the Eatonville Cruisers swept the first five places and also won with a perfect team score of 15 points. The Pirates finished in second of the four teams with 48 points. Vashon’s Landon Summers finished sixth overall; Olin Nespor took ninth place and Nathan Williams took 10th . Thursday’s meet included a 1.5-mile middle school race, where eighth-grader Jeffrey Parrish, representing McMurray Middle School, was the overall winner with a time of 9:24. Also representing McMurray in this meet were Ezra Alledge, who finished in 10:15 and Abe Vanselow, who finished in 11:55. The McMurray boys team took second in the meet with 18 points. Seattle Christian took first with 13, and Life Christian was third with 21. None of the middle schools had a complete girls team. — Kevin Ross is a cross-country coach at Vashon High School.

Volleyball team takes tough losses The Vashon High School volleyball team played two lively but frustrating matches last week and lost both contests. On Monday, Sept. 24, the team took a loss at Life Christian. Two nights later at a match at Charles Wright, Vashon started out with a two-game

lead, only to lose in a 2-3 tiebreaker. Vashon reached the midway point of their season when they hosted Cedar Park, a team new to the league, on Monday after press deadline. Today the team will take on Eatonville at home. — Jill Mulvihill

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

On Saturday 20 students and 28 community members showed for the annual Dock-toDock fun run, which challenges athletes to run the length of the Island, or as far as they can, as a fundraiser for the VHS crosscountry team. This year’s turnout was greater than last year’s, and many finished the 13.5-mile distance from Tahlequah to the northend dock. Members of the high school and middle school crosscountry teams ran a combined total of 161.3 miles, with Kanit Jungsakulrujire, Nathan Williams, Olin Nespor, Harper Whitney, Ezra Allredge, Abe Vanselow and Jeffrey Parrish completing the entire distance. Fifteen community members also ran the whole distance. Pictured at left, Lisa and Bruce Cyra sprint for the gate at the north-end dock to finish the run together. In addition to having had three children in the VHS cross-country program, the Cyras are involved in organizing and supporting the Vashon Ultra, Heart of the Sound Triathlon and Vashon Running Club.

Pirate football falls to Port Townsend

After receiving a Pirate punt, Port Townsend started the second quarter with another score and a 26-6 lead. Then another Pirate punt led to a Port Townsend touchdown and a 33-6 score. The Pirates were able to score again before halftime on a drive that featured two long pass plays to Garrett Starr and another catch by Anderson, capped by a touchdown run from Amundsen, bringing the score to 33-14. In the third quarter, the Pirates were driving on offense with Amundsen getting four first downs on keepers, but the drive was stopped on fourth and three at the 6-yard line. Port Townsend got the ball and drove down for another score, stretching the Port Townsend’s lead to 40-14. The Pirates had the ball two more times in the fourth quarter but were unable to score. Port Townsend scored again to end the scoring and win 46-14. The Pirates will play at Charles Wright on Friday. Their next home game is Friday, Oct. 12, against Pemberton, B.C.

By BRIAN BRENNO For The Beachcomber

The Vashon football team traveled to Port Townsend on Friday and came away with another loss 46-14. Port Townsend received the opening kickoff and scored on the first play from scrimmage. The extra point was no good, bringing the score to 6-0. After going three and out, the Pirates punted, and Port Townsend quickly scored again on a long run to lead 13-0 The Pirates returned the kickoff to the 30-yard line. Early in the drive, Pirate quarterback Nick Amundsen threw a pass to Evan Anderson, who took it 64 yards to the 4-yard line. Amundsen later took a keeper from the 1-yard line for a touchdown. The point after was no good, leaving Port Townsend leading 13-6. Owen Brenno recovered a Port Townsend fumble on the 30-yard line on first play after the kickoff. The Pirates moved the ball, getting two first downs on Amundsen runs. The drive ended at the 8-yard line with a fumble. Port Townsend’s quarterback then rumbled for a 93-yard touchdown run to bring the score to 19-6.

Beachcomber wins bevy of awards in statewide contest Dental Van returns to serve

The Beachcomber staff won 21 awards at the Washington Newspaper Publishers Association (WNPA) 2012 Better Newspaper Contest, a statewide competition for small community newspapers. The newspaper, competing against other papers with similar circulation sizes, won awards for news reporting, feature writing, photography and page design, as well as awards for several ads it designed and special sections it published between 2011 and 2012. Beachcomber publisher Daralyn Anderson accepted the awards at the WNPA’s annual gathering in Yakima on Friday. “It was such an honor to see my staff ’s hard work recognized,� Anderson said. “The WNPA contest is a real measure of excellence for community newspapers.� The staff won 13 awards for editorial

content. Editor Leslie Brown swept the category for Best News Story — Long, with first-, second- and third-place prizes for her stories about a homeless camp that was forced out of the woods, abandoned wells and the search for an elderly man missing on Vashon. She also won the top prize for Best Editorial for her commentary about a homeless encampment in the woods on Vashon. Brown, together with arts editor Elizabeth Shepherd, won another coveted first prize for their comprehensive coverage of Vashon Allied Arts’ push to build a new multimillion dollar arts center. Judges in that category called their series of articles about the issue a “balanced reporting of arguments from both sides.� Susan Riemer took first in another competitive category, Best General Feature Story — Long, for her feature on Vashon’s American Hero Quilts

program. And Natalie Johnson won awards for five articles, including first place in the News of the Weird category for a piece on the Vashon Elves’ removal from the main intersection by the sheriff’s department and second place in the Best Environmental Story category for a look at the Island’s growing coyote population. Johnson also won a second-place award for a photo of students at Chautauqua’s new pond. The Beachcomber’s advertising staff — Daralyn Anderson and Matthew Olds — and its designer Nance Scott also won eight awards for their work on several different ads and special sections. Scott and Anderson received first place in the Best Special Section Cover category for the 2011-2012 Destination Vashon and, with Olds, second place in Most Original Idea for its bulletin board ad page.

The Dental Van, which provides free dental care to people with low incomes, will be on Vashon twice next week, offering services to children and adults, thanks in part to a grant from Granny’s Attic. The $10,000 grant is double what Granny’s Attic provided last year, according to Hilary Emmer, who applied for the funds from the Granny’s board and has been instrumental in the dental van service on the Island. “I’m ecstatic,� Emmer said. For many years the thrift store provided funds only to the Vashon Health Center, but in recent years the board has supported other health-related needs on the Island, according to board President Janet Kime. “Granny’s Attic has been delighted to provide most of the funding for the adult dental van trips since 2010,� Kime said. “We know how important dental health is, and there is a great need for low-cost care.� The van, operated by the nonprofit Medical Teams International, has made multiple trips to the Island in recent years, but first began offering services for children last year. The van has been popular for both children and adults, according to Emmer, who is now scheduling people for visits. The van will be on Vashon Oct. 10 and 11, she noted, but currently only has openings for children ages 2 to 18. “The van has really addressed a need on the Island,� she said. Last Thursday, Emmer sent out a notice on VashonAll stating that the van was coming, and within 24 hours, 10 people had requested appointments, three of whom had urgent situations, she said. While the next week’s schedule for adults is full, she encourages people who need dental care to call her and get in the queue for future van visits. The schedule follows a modified school year, beginning in September and ending in July, with no visits in August. This year, she said, the van will visit six times for children and 16 times for adults. The children’s service has been focused on both preventative and acute care, while the adult service has been focused on addressing dental crises, Emmer noted. This year, the van for adults will come to the Island five more times than in past years, and Emmer said she is hopeful they will be able to begin to address some preventative needs in adults as well as take care of dental emergencies. While the company that provides the van is a nonprofit, the cost to bring the van to the Island carries a hefty price tag: $800 per trip, with ferry fare an additional cost. Grants from Granny’s Attic, the Interfaith Council to Prevent Homelessness and other groups and individuals have covered the cost of the van, according to Emmer, but adults who receive services are asked to donate if they are able to cover the cost of ferry fare. To schedule an appointment or for more information about the van, call Emmer at 463-7277.

(BSEFO$MVCTIJTUPSZDPNFTUP MJGFBUOFXIFSJUBHFFYIJCJU Vashon’s garden club has flourished on the Island for more than 60 years. In celebration, club members have created an exhibit at the Vashon-Maury Island Heritage Museum, curated by board members and Island historian Bruce Haulman. Called “Passion in the Dirt: Sixty Years of Plant Lust and Flower Power,� the exhibit opens at 7 p.m. Friday at the museum. The exhibit will include several displays — from “A Flair for Flower Arranging� to “Glorious Community Gardens� — all of them adorned with photographs and artifacts drawn from the archives of both the garden club and the Vashon-Maury Island Heritage Association. “The exhibit will knock everyone’s socks off, gardener and non-gardener alike,� said Nancy Studer, a garden club member and one of the curators. “We are showing not only the history of the garden club, but the history of Vashon as well, and the agricultural changes that have occurred along the way.� Haulman said it’s been a joy to work with garden club members, whom he called fun and enthusiastic, to put on this exhibit. “They’ve had a lot of fun with this exhibit,� he said. “It’s serious, but it’s also lighthearted.� Haulman said the show is organized by themes. Visitors will learn not only about the club’s history, but about trends in gardening and agriculture in the past 60 years and the club’s involvement in key Island events. For instance, Haulman said, the garden club did landscaping at the old Nike missile site and supported the creation of the heron rookery preserve on Maury Island. “It’s sort of the idea that clubs like the garden club become microcosms of the Island. They become sort of recorders of trends and issues that the Island is dealing with, from the perspective of gardeners,� he said. The Heritage Museum recently expanded its hours and is now open from 1 to 4 p.m. Wednesday through Sunday.

largest water consumer on the Island, would receive a reduced irrigation rate, saving the district about $20,000 a year in water costs. Superintendent Michael Soltman, in an interview, said he was hesitant to support the proposal before examining the costs and benefits, but noted that the $20,000 the school district would save annually could be put back into instructional programs. “I think there’s a possibility it would be a good benefit to the school district from that standpoint,� he said. Water District 19 has struggled with a water shortage for years — leading to what is now a 15-year moratorium in water shares — in part because it can’t meet peak demand with its current water capacity and hasn’t had the funds or state approval to install more wells. The water district is the largest water purveyor on the Island, with boundaries that extend north to near The Harbor School and as far south as Quartermaster Harbor, taking in all of Vashon town. But because District 19 isn’t fully using its water right at its main well field, which hasn’t produced as much as expected, Haworth said, those rights could be transferred to a new well at the high school. Such a development would be significant, Haworth said: A new well at the high school would free up 30 to 50 water shares. Earlier this year, the district temporarily lifted the moratorium when it issued 30 new shares — units derived in part from bringing a new well online and in part from Islanders’ increasing conservation of water. Still, the district currently has a list 300 shares long to be issued to about 90 different properties. Some on the list are

spirited meeting that also focused attention on the agency’s current plight — a need to shave $111,000 from its already tight budget between now and December, when its fiscal year ends. Two weeks ago, the projected deficit was $88,000. Treasurer Michael DeBlasi presented two scenarios to his colleagues on the board and the 50 or so community members in attendance. One, which projected the agency would end its year with $1,300 in cash, called for a slight reduction in staff, employee furloughs and a $12,000 contribution from the Vashon Island School District to top-dress the school-owned fields that the park district maintains. The second scenario, which would leave the district with $19,000 in cash, suggested more staff reductions as well as closing the skate park for the remainder of the year. It also suggested $12,000 from the school district. “We’re not taking these measures because we like them,� Ameling said at one point. “We’re taking these measures to stay alive until December.� But the discussion was bumpy in places. When the issue of the school district contribution came up, someone turned to Kathy Jones, a school board member who was in the audience, and asked her if the district knew about this. It did not, she said. “The school district would object to the park district backing away from full maintenance of the fields,� she told the park commissioners. The question of a handful of employee pay raises, put in place by former Executive Director Jan Milligan before she was let go, also created a complex dance among commissioners — with back-to-back motions that initially

requesting water shares for intriguing and worthwhile projects such as lowincome housing, Haworth said. “I do feel a responsibility ‌ to help people get water and build the houses they want to build,â€? Haworth told the school board. The revenue the water district would generate from selling the new shares at $10,000 apiece, Haworth said, would cover District 19’s share of the well’s cost and possibly fund restoration of some deteriorating water mains as well. The school district, Haworth noted, has been working to decrease its water costs since 1997. What’s more, over the past half-dozen years, the school district’s rates have increased as Water District 19 has altered its rate structure, charging more to its highest users in an effort to encourage conservation. “I think this will help (the school district). ‌ I think it’s a good thing.â€? Haworth said in an interview. “The water district board is fully behind it, and I anticipate the school district will be behind it as well.â€? Some Islanders, however, say they’re skeptical of promises made about any new wells. They point to to District 19’s history of digging expensive wells that didn’t produce as expected, inflating rates and racking up thousands of dollars of debt that are still being paid off by the district. Most recently, the Beall Well was completed at nearly twice its projected cost. The well, which supplies less than half of District 19’s water right for that location, was also found to contain high levels of arsenic, requiring its water to be treated. “I understand what’s driving (the proposal),â€? said Martin Koenig, a Water District 19 customer who pays close attention to water issues on Vashon. “But as a rate payer it’s a concern to me because I’ve seen so many of those rosy pictures get a little cloudy, and water is always a risk.â€? Frank Jackson, a former District 19

rescinded those raises then re-instituted them for six weeks while the district studies them to ensure no policies were violated in the way the raises were made. Another tricky issue was the fate of the skate park. Jenni Wilke, a community member whose son is an avid skater, said she was troubled to read in The Beachcomber that the skate park could close for the remainder of the year. She’s part of an active stewardship group that supports the center; the group had been told last month that the skate park wouldn’t be affected by the budget crisis. “We trusted you,� she said, sounding frustrated. Ameling told her the skate park wouldn’t close, adding that precise line items for the two approaches before the board were still under review. The chair then urged the commissioners to take what he called the “most conservative� of the two approaches, striving to shave $19,000 from the budget but analyzing the situation every two weeks, when it meets. It’s not clear what those reductions will look like until Susan McCabe, the interim executive director, and Marie Browne, the agency’s financial consultant, can spend more time poring over the numbers, he said. Hackett objected to Ameling’s approach. “I think we’ve drifted aimlessly for too long,� he said, adding that Ameling’s move amounted to “more drifting aimlessly.� A plan to shave $19,000 from the budget without greater clarity, Hackett added, “is a disservice to the public. We might close the skate park. We might not.� Hackett called for a five-point plan that included furloughing all staff, imposing a hiring freeze, not allowing any purchases above $1,000 and other moves. His motion was defeated, 3-2, with Joe Wald joining him in voting for it. Ultimately, the board agreed to take the more conservative of the two approaches. In an interview after the meeting, DeBlasi said the chances of the skate park closing early this year are remote.

commissioner, said he too was concerned about the risks involved in drilling another well. He suggested the district’s resources might be better spent on improving services. Problems with water pressure, for instance, have long plagued the water district, he said. “The customers have been paying for these ... wells, millions of dollars to look for expansion, and at the same time there are problems with water distribution,� he said. School board members at Thursday’s meeting also questioned the rationale of digging a new well. “What if you put in the whole shebang here and it doesn’t work?� asked Laura Wishik, a board member. Haworth, however, said the proposed well is less risky than those District 19 has dug in recent years. The well would be much shallower, tapping into the Island’s principal aquifer rather than the less reliable deep aquifer. A King County study upheld by the state Department of Ecology says there is likely water at that location, and a test well costing $20,000 to $40,000 would assess the proposed area’s output and water quality before well construction. “The dollar amount is (smaller),� Haworth said after the meeting. “I think it’s a risk worth taking to help the school district.� School board chair Dan Chasan said after the meeting that he and other board members wanted to explore the specific financial terms of the proposal and understand the risks involved for the district before putting the proposal to a vote. Board member Steve Ellison said he too wanted to learn more but thought the well could be a good deal for the district. He noted that $20,000 a year — the amount the district could save in annual water costs — amounts to about one-third of a teacher’s salary. “I do like the creativity and innovative thinking,� he said.

“I don’t think we’ll miss a beat on the skate park. It’s a small program. And because it’s one of the few after-school programs we have, it’s valuable,� he said. Asked why this year’s deficit went from $88,000 to $111,000 in two weeks, he said it’s hard to know for certain but added that it’s a fluid budget, with receipts and expenses for various programs getting tallied on a regular basis. Park district employees, for instance, are just now adding up the numbers from this season’s operation of the swimming pool, which looks like it brought in about $10,000 less than anticipated. “That number goes up and down,� he added. “Hopefully, it won’t go up too much more.� As for the $12,000 from the school district, DeBlasi said, the two agencies need to find time to discuss the situation. But he also sounded frustrated, noting the park district took on field maintenance a few years ago to help out the school district. “When they were in trouble, we helped them out. Now we’re in trouble, and we won’t see a cent,� he said. Jones, the school board member, said she was sorry to hear of DeBlasi’s frustration with the school district but said the commons agreement — which governs the way the two agencies handle shared facilities, such as fields and gymnasiums — wasn’t made as a way to bail out the school district. Rather, she and other board members said, it was a carefully crafted agreement recognizing the agencies’ shared commitment to the facilities and driven largely by Hackett on the park board. “I’m not saying we’re not considering options that would support joint goals,� Jones added. “But right now, we’re not just going to give the park district money, because that’s not our mission. Our mission is to support our schools.� The park district board’s next meeting will be at 7 p.m. Tuesday, Oct. 9, at its Ober Park district office.

Born 2010, Basil is a handsome boy who likes to soak up pets and luxuriate in his bed. He was found at an apartment complex in downtown Vashon and no one ever claimed him. This boy is totally mellow. He is not phased by the other cats and he likes to stick to himself. Basil is looking for a new home where he can be adored.

When Trilby first came to VIPP she was really anxious and upset. After spending time in a foster home, she settled down and was ready to move to the shelter. When Trilby got to the shelter she trilled constantly confirming the name that her foster mom gave to her. Over time though, Trilby quieted down and now she is quiet as a mouse. She is so laid back that she doesn’t even move out of her bed when the monthly shelter cleaners come in with the vacuum. Trilby gets along great with her VIPP bunkmates.

Bo

Meet , a handsome 5 year old chocolate lab so full of love that he explodes into a smiling wiggly goofball with every new hello. Sadly, like many dogs that come into our care, Bo didn’t get the best start. Banished to the back yard, he has spent his entire life without the human attention that every dog needs to feel right in the world. He is a friendly, wonderful dog but as a result of his past care, he does have a few manageable issues he will need some help with. He is a high energy guy who will need an owner who likes to play ball with him. Most of all, he needs love. Much more information about Bo on VIPP.ORG
