County reveals plan for developing former Glacier site Limited amenities would be added for recreational use By NATALIE JOHNSON Staff Writer

THE STARS COME OUT ON VASHON Hollywood doesn’t have anything over Vashon if Sunday afternoon’s parade of the glitterati was any indication. Women in gowns and heels, men in tuxedos and bow ties made the scene, walking down the red carpet while photographers snapped madly. Sunday’s affair marked Vashon’s 16th homegrown celebration of the Academy Awards at the Vashon Theatre, an extravaganza that included awards for several bestdressed islanders. Making the scene (top) were, from left, Emily Burns, Elizabeth Ripley, Elizabeth Nye, John Staczek and Chad Lindberg. Several teens turned out as well, including, from left, Louisa Moody, Adelia Reardon Cronin and Coral Sky. Turn to page 17 for more photos. Leslie Brown/Staff Photos

The former Glacier mining site on Maury Island will one day boast a maintained trail system, a parking lot, picnic areas, viewpoints and interpretive signs, if a plan proposed by King County this month moves forward. After months of planning, the county’s Department of Natural Resources and Parks (DNRP) is ready to present a draft management plan for the 250-acre site, which it purchased in 2010. Officials will discuss the plan and take comments at a public meeting on Vashon next week. “Right now (the site) is somewhat underutilized, but that will change as a park or natural area gets developed,” said John Gerstle, a Maury Island resident who is part of a citizen advisory group that has vetted how Vashon and King County should use the large open space, which

boasts nearly a mile of shoreline, madrone forests and sweeping views of Puget Sound and Mt. Rainier. “I think it will be really treasured, not just now but 50 or 100 years from now,” Gerstle said. The 14-person committee has been meeting monthly since last August and has made a raft of recommendations to the county, most of which were incorporated into the draft management plan that will be presented next week. A final plan will be forwarded to the state Department of Ecology (DOE), which will dictate what kind of soil remediation must happen before work begins at the site. The area is contaminated with lead and arsenic from the historic Tacoma Smelter Plume. “We are all trying to move this forward so we can get to the cleanup portion,” said Connie Blumen, DNRP’s Natural Lands Program Manager who has worked closely with the committee. Under the county’s draft plan, current trails at the site would SEE GLACIER, 19

Posthumous exhibit showcases a legacy of art Acclaimed curator’s show was prepared during her final days By ELIZABETH SHEPHERD Staff Writer

An upcoming exhibition at VALISE has a special significance: It’s the final curatorial effort of Mia McEldowney, a force in the Seattle art scene who made Vashon her home for the past nine years. McEldowney, who was not only an art dealer but also instrumental in founding the artists’ support organization Artist Trust died on Feb. 1 at the age of 62 after a long battle with a rare autoimmune disease. But even as her friends and admirers on Vashon and beyond mourned her passing, they learned that she had been busy in the

months prior to her death preparing one more show to offer them. The exhibit, aptly named “Lessons from the Heart,” will showcase the work of Joe Max Emminger, Julie Paschkis and Terry Turrell, Northwest artists whose work McEldowney championed for years. All three were part of her stable at Mia Gallery, a Seattle venue she owned from 1983 to 1997 that was known nationwide for its allembracing mix of work by folk and “outsider” artists as well as works by other emerging and formally trained, contemporary artists. “This show is very indicative of who she was and is,” said Bill Mitchell, McEldowney’s husband. “Lessons from the Heart” marks the second time in six months that McEldowney curated a show at VALISE, SEE MCELDOWNEY, 12

Users need to do more to complete fields project, some contend But some said they’re ready to help, once the time comes By LESLIE BROWN Staff Writer

Several islanders voiced concern on Saturday about the mounting costs of the Vashon Park District’s fields project and urged island sports groups to play a larger role in shouldering the financial burden. At Saturday’s meeting, a special three-hour gathering to try to find a way to complete the ambitious complex north of town, Truman O’Brien, a former park district commissioner, noted that other capital projects the agency took on over the years were driven largely by user groups and financed by community and individual contributions and grants. According to his analysis, he told the group at the Ober Park meeting room, park district funds covered between 5 to 35 percent of the costs of the agency’s previous projects, from the Jensen Point Boathouse to the Paradise Ridge Park horse arena. The escalating tab for the fields project, on the other hand, has largely been picked up by the park district, he said, which to date has used levy dollars to cover about 65 percent of the project’s costs. Those expenditures, he and others said, have taken a toll on the small agency. “Let’s quit spending levy dollars on this. ‌ We’ve cut back on a lot of our programs to fund this project. Let’s not keep this going,â€? he said at the meeting, attended by three of the five park district commissioners and about 35 community members.

Craig Beles calls on a community member. Next to him, from the far left, are commissioners Lu-Ann Branch, Joe Wald and John Hopkins. Others concurred. “I’d write a check for $100 tomorrow if I see (the users) write a check,� said John Candy, noting that he doesn’t have any school-age children or grandchildren on Vashon. “It’s an investment for them and their children and they need to step forward.� Some at the meeting also voiced surprise by the news that the park district had re-hired its former site superintendent to oversee construction at the project, a move that was made last week without public notice and that comes on the heels of several layoffs at the cash-strapped agency. The fact that Mike Mattingly, a finalist for the park district’s general manager position, had just been hired surfaced after islander Hilary Emmer asked him during the meeting if he were an employee. Board chair Joe Wald answered that he was an employee; Elaine Ott, the agency’s newly hired general manager, said he was a contract worker. His wage is

$42.50 an hour; it includes no benefits. “I don’t remember any vote,� Emmer said. “This seems pretty loose.� Wald responded that the board asked him to move forward on the project and hiring a site superintendent was necessary to get the project going again. Much of the meeting — which was facilitated by Craig Beles, a lawyer and experienced facilitator — focused on clarifying what has been done to date at the fields project and what still remains to be completed by June 30 to secure $150,000 in two state grants. All told, Wald estimated, the park district has to finish about $190,000 in work to get the project to a point where those state funds could be released. The park district has budgeted $95,000 for the fields project in its 2013 budget. The remaining funds, Wald said, would have to be donated. According to numbers provided by Emmer, who said she spent several hours with Ott poring over

spreadsheets to come up with the figures, the project has so far cost close to $1.7 million, with $400,000 of that coming from a nonvoter approved bond and $831,852 from the park district’s levy funds. The fields project was slated to cost $1.12 million, with $115,000 coming from the park district and $300,000 from donations. So far, the district has received $142,000 in donations, according to Emmer’s figures. Representatives from Vashon Youth Baseball & Softball, meanwhile, said they’re willing to resume work on the project once other steps have been taken. They’ve already raised funds and agreed to cover some of the project’s costs, said Scott Hitchcock, a member of the youth baseball board. Once the concrete gets poured, baseball parents will take on another significant piece and build the dugouts, he said. “We’ll do what we can,� Hitchcock said. “But there are a lot of things that have

to happen first.� Andy Davis, a soccer coach representing Vashon’s soccer club, said the club has already done a considerable amount of fundraising and will do more. “I’m sure we see this as one of our highest priorities,� he said. Charlie Krimmert, president of the Vashon Lacrosse Club, also pledged support. “We’re in the game. We want to help.� But after the meeting, several people said they were frustrated by what they saw as few accomplishments or clear next steps as a result of the gathering. No fundraising commitments were made, some attendees noted, and no volunteers actually stepped forward. Large volunteer sign-up sheets posted at the back of the room remained blank as the meeting broke up. “Nothing came of it. Nothing happened. No one signed up to do anything. And we still don’t have any cash flow,� Emmer, who’s

part of a small watchdog group examining the park district’s finances, said after the meeting. O’Brien, who is also a part of the citizens’ group, expressed similar frustrations. Mattingly, O’Brien noted, was site superintendent when costs escalated and when the park district failed to comply with state laws governing a public works project, according to a draft audit the state issued two weeks ago. “It appears to me they’re just going in and doing exactly what they did before. ‌ They’re having the same guy who did it step back in. ‌ Something’s wrong here,â€? O’Brien said. But John Hopkins, the newest member of the commission and the board member who organized the public meeting, said he believed the park district made some progress Saturday. The gathering, he said, was “a big step in rebuilding our credibility.â€?

When body washed ashore, a woman came back home, daughter says By LESLIE BROWN Staff Writer

Margaret Paterson, a Tacoma middle school math teacher, knows that it was tides and currents that carried her mother’s body to an empty stretch of beach on Vashon’s west side. “It makes sense, from an oceanic standpoint,â€? she said. But she also can’t help but find a bit of mystery, magic, even poetry in the way her mother’s life ended earlier this week. Martha Scharpf, Paterson’s mother, walked into a chilly Puget Sound off of Titlow Park in Tacoma on Friday, Feb. 15, a few months shy of her 90th birthday. Her eyesight was failing. She was increasingly experiencing dementia. In a note to her daughter, she said she’d had enough and was ready to go. But in ending up at Reddings Beach, Scharpf, her daughter said, came back home. Scharpf, a former Vashon resident, once owned Books by the Way. Her closest friends were from here. It was a place, Paterson said, that her mother loved. “It’s like karma that she went to Vashon,â€? Paterson said. “The biologist in me knows that’s the way the tides worked. And according to the police department, things tend to wash up there. ‌ But I think there is something kind of magical about the fact that she wanted to go back to Vashon.â€? Scharpf ’s body was discovered last

Monday afternoon by a man and his two children who were out for a walk. The body was among a pile of driftwood on a quiet expanse of beach between Camp Sealth and Lisabuela Park. Initially, she was identified as an elderly woman from Tacoma. Authorities later released her name, noting, again, that she was a Tacoma resident. But after The Beachcomber updated its story on its website, adding her name to the brief post, an email or two came in and a few queries were posted on Facebook. Wasn’t Martha Scharpf the former owner of Books by the Way? Wasn’t she one of our own? “It’s such an amazing story,� said Carole Elder, one of Scharpf’s friends and a Vashon resident, after she learned the news. Susan Montoya, a former Vashon resident and the woman who purchased Books by the Way from Scharpf, agreed. “It gives me goosebumps,� she said. Paterson, reached Thursday afternoon, 30 minutes after learning definitively that it was her mother’s body that had been found on Vashon, said she’s completely at peace with Scharpf’s decision. Her mother had long lived life on her own terms, Paterson said. She got her undergraduate degree from Stanford, then went back to school after her children were grown to get a master’s degree in gerontology and to launch a career as a retirement home administrator. She entered the

Peace Corps at age 60, returned to the United States with a bit of money, moved into Paterson’s home in Tacoma and began to look around for her next adventure, Paterson said. In her quest to decide what was next, she drove to Vashon and discovered that Books by the Way — then located in the yellow bungalow next to Pandora’s Box — was for sale. She bought the small shop in 1985, at age 63, becoming the bookstore’s second owner. Twice, she moved it — first to Parker’s Plaza and then to the spot next to Frame of Mind, where it was a going concern until its last owners closed it in November 2011. Those who knew her described her as someone who loved books and poured many hours into her shop, revitalizing the small store. She was single-minded, nononsense, feisty and a bit cantankerous, people recalled. “She was her own person,� said Donna Kellum, owner of Frame of Mind, who added that she was impressed by how hard she worked. “She got things done.� Margaret Paterson agreed. “Her entire adult life was on her own terms. She did exactly what she wanted to do and made it happen.� Scharpf sold the bookstore eight years later, in 1994, when she was 71, Paterson said. She continued to live on Vashon for a few years; her house was a mobile home in upper Burton.

“It was the perfect place for her,� Paterson said of Vashon. “She loved the lifestyle on Vashon. She loved the people.� Paterson said she has a stack of 15 letters from her mother’s home at the assisted living center in Northwest Tacoma next to Titlow Park where she moved four months ago. “Almost to a person, they’re people she met on Vashon,� Paterson said. Paterson, too, has a Vashon connection. She taught science at The Harbor School from 2003 to 2006, commuting to Vashon from her home in Tacoma. Her daughter, Kate Paterson, did the commute with her, graduating from Vashon High School in 2006. Scharpf’s life in recent years had become a struggle, Paterson said. She was experiencing some dementia and had macular degeneration and was losing her eyesight. “For a lady who likes to read, this was just devastating,� Paterson said. Over the last few years, Scharpf talked to her daughter about ending her life when the time felt right. “The right moment came,� Paterson said. “I’m proud of her — that she was able to accomplish this final goal. This is what she wanted.� “We will never know if it was difficult or if she just pushed forward until the cold overtook her,� Paterson added. “We are all smiling that she ended up on Vashon. I only wish she could be here to laugh with us.�

Middle schoolers bring drug prosecutor to speak on Vashon Students were inspired when Stiles spoke at a youth conference By NATALIE JOHNSON Staff Writer

A group of McMurray students is bringing a former federal drug prosecutor from Idaho to Vashon next week to speak about preventing youth substance abuse. Monte Stiles, a motivational speaker whom the students heard at a youth conference in Yakima last fall, will visit next Tuesday, speaking at assemblies at the middle and high schools and giving a presentation in the evening for parents and other adults. “We all felt like he was a really great speaker and he would really have an impact at our school,� said Jack Kelly, a McMurray student involved in the effort. Last November, Kelly and seven other McMurray eighth graders

Monte Stiles is also a skilled nature photographer. traveled to the Washington State Prevention Summit in Yakima, where they spent several days attending workshops on substance abuse and healthy communities, hearing speakers and meeting other middle schoolers from around the state. Kelly said the group was especially inspired by Stiles, who was the keynote speaker at the event

said. “It was incredibly easy.� Luke McQuillin, who heads VARSA, said he was thrilled the organization was able to send middle schoolers to the prevention summit last year — adults from Vashon have attended the last couple of years — but even more thrilled that they were taking steps to share what they learned with other island youth. The group has also been reading substance abuse facts to the school during the morning announcements and is making plans to put on healthy after-school activities for their peers. “It’s exactly what we were hoping for,� McQuillin said. “These kids are going to take this information and hopefully be the seeds to continue this as they move forward through the grades.� Stiles will speak at daytime assemblies at McMurray and Vashon High School on Tuesday, March 5. He will give a talk aimed at parents and adults from 7 to 8:30 p.m. that evening at McMurray Middle School.

and also put on a workshop that some of them attended. “A big part of his message was that peer pressure can be a really good thing when used correctly and we should empower each other to stay away from dugs. ‌ Kids should be the ones to support their friends when it comes to substance abuse,â€? Kelly said. Stiles spent nearly three decades as a state and federal drug prosecutor. He now travels the country and the world as a drug educator and motivational speaker, delivering messages to schools, churches, law enforcement agencies and youth organizations. The eighth graders, who have met regularly since the Yakima conference, approached the Vashon School Board to secure funds to bring Stiles to Vashon. The Vashon Alliance to Reduce Substance Abuse (VARSA), which helped send the group to Yakima, is also helping cover Stiles’ appearance. “We found a lot of available money to bring him here,â€? Kelly

Meteor near-miss gives rise to big questions

The costs of the fields: An equation that raises concerns

A brush with impending doom should put a few things in perspective

What’s troubling about the Vashon Park District’s budget for its fields project north of town is the relationship between two key numbers — the overall cost, which has gone up considerably since the project was announced four years ago, and the amount raised in community contributions, which has fallen far short of the promised goal. The result is that the project — an effort to provide muchneeded athletic field space to both youth and adult sports teams — has taken, and continues to take, a huge bite out of the park district’s shrinking budget. A bite far larger than anyone ever anticipated. That message was made loud and clear at Saturday’s public meeting to discuss the future of the fields project. Several people raised concerns about the impact the project has had on the park district, which in a matter of months has become a mere shadow of its former self. The once-robust agency has gone from one that offered both programs and facilities to an agency that mostly simply manages its physical assets. It has let go of its kayak center; has changed its relationship with instructors who offer classes and programs; plans to reduce hours at the pool this summer; and has laid off nearly its entire office staff. This isn’t solely because of the fields project. Exacerbating the situation has been a decline in property tax revenue due to falling home values on Vashon. But it doesn’t take a rocket scientist, or even a CPA, for that matter, to understand that a declining overall budget and escalating project costs are a bad combination. That’s why some at Saturday’s meeting were troubled to learn that in the midst of this situation, Mike Mattingly, a retired trucking executive, has been retained to try to see the fields project to fruition. Surely, the park district needs professional help. But Mattingly is the same person who oversaw the project two years ago, when the park district — at least according to the state auditors — failed to bid it out correctly or comply with the complex laws governing public works. And in a disheartening moment at Saturday’s meeting, Mattingly made it clear he didn’t support the auditor’s findings, saying “amen� when someone at the meeting found fault with the report. Mattingly may have the skills and experience to see this project to fruition. He’s certainly put in a lot of volunteer hours over the last few months and seems engaged and committed. And he and others may be correct that the auditors didn’t — or couldn’t, because of missing documents — see the whole picture. But to many at Saturday’s meeting, Mattingly’s retention felt like deja vu all over again. It felt as though nothing had changed at the park district — despite a blistering audit, months of citizen participation and a worsening financial picture. To regain credibility, park commissioners need to show that it’s not business as usual at Ober Park. They need to act with complete transparency. And as Carol McLean Ireland said Saturday, they’ve got to take responsibility for the mess the park district is in. Until that happens, we fear the situation will only get worse.

After I watched the videos of a meteor streaking over the Ural Mountains a couple of weeks ago, I snarkily tweeted: “Meteor explodes over Russia. Asteroid misses Earth by 15 minutes. All part of the prophecy foretold by noted philosopher & sage Jerry Bruckheimer.� In the 1998 film “Armageddon,� Bruckheimer tried to show us how the world might respond to incoming planetary annihilation. Completing the movie industry’s mass-extinction-event double feature was “Deep Impact,� released just weeks earlier, both movies determined to give us a taste of how humanity might react if today was the last day of the rest of our lives. How did we do? All I remember is badly written and poorly acted panic, violence and hoarding mixed with brilliant ingenuity, collaborative spunk and a “thisis-bigger-than-all-our-silly-problems� determination. The recent (and actual) double feature of meteor and asteroid was a stark reminder that we humans are not driving our cosmic bus. We’re just passengers. We can’t stop at intersections and look both ways. We fly blindly along, daily risking the mathematical likeli-

END TIMES By JEFF HOYT hood of one final, fiery collision. Any eon now. Cosmic events like these make it a little easier to see the big picture. If there’s an Intra-Galactic Evening News out there somewhere, our demise would probably amount to nothing more than a brief mention of a “planetary fender-bender.� Back here on Earth, though, what would we actually see unfurl in the face of guaranteed impending destruction? Would we put aside our differences and come together as a species? Would Indians and Pakistanis gather on a mountaintop in Kashmir to hold hands for a few choruses of “I’d Like to Teach the World to Sing?� Would our petty individual differences melt away in a megatsunami of forgiveness and reconciliation? Or would our ids break loose in a panic-stricken Loot-A-Palooza, featuring murder, mayhem and a last-gasp planet-wide Shagfest? Amid the chaos, could our leaders and scientists actually work together to craft a Hollywoodesque international expedition (led by Bruce Willis, of course) to attempt to destroy the incom-

Fields project

#PBSEOFFETBXFMMRVBMJGJFENBOBHFS I am in agreement with CC Stone’s call in last week’s Beachcomber (“Key user groups need to pay for the project�) for user groups to pick up the tab for the capital costs of the new playing fields. This was the consensus of most of the people at the community meeting on the project Saturday. However, before the park district board can successfully call upon the community to bail out the gross mismanagement of the project design, financing and construction, the board needs to engage a wellqualified construction project manager.

The secret reemployment of the previous unqualified project manager, which was casually revealed for the first time Saturday, is not the way to restore public confidence in the park district and enlist private contribution and participation. It was distressing to see missing from Saturday’s public discussion the two park board members who carry the weight of the burden for the mismanagement of project construction and finance. They seem to feel that attacking the messengers of their folly is an appropriate response for breaking Washington state laws and board rules. Their resignation would be more in line with public need

ing Doomsday Rock — or at least nudge it out of our path? If that mission proves successful (all the more likely if the heroic crew walks abreast in slow motion toward their waiting craft), what would we do with our cosmic mulligan? Would we treat it as a life-altering near-death experience, deciding once and for all to combine pragmatism with heart to avoid war and personal conflict? Would we stop trying to beat the asteroid to the punch by destroying the planet ourselves with toxic waste? Would we eat less and exercise more? Or would the world simply exhale a global sigh of relief and mindlessly return to our regular programming, already in progress? I prefer to imagine civilization as benefitting from a brush with extinction. If we failed to seize the opportunity such a second chance would afford us, we’d only confirm the notion that humanity is basically a form of intelligent Scotch Broom, an invasive species that can’t help but consume everything in its path. We got off easy last week with a couple of once-in-a-millennia taps on the shoulder, gentle reminders (at least by cosmic standards) that no matter how much time we spend sweating the small stuff, there’s plenty of big stuff out there ready to really mess up our weekend.

One Billion Rising, on Vashon and beyond

One man’s effort at solidarity, from the sidelines “Join the rising,� read the invitation. So my wife Sheila and I did. We had to have been the oldest couple who showed up. Our collective age is 152 years, and I’m three years shy of 80. You do the math on Sheila. Neither of us can resist a good cause. Going back to the civil rights marches and the Vietnam protests of the 60s, not to mention Earth Day, Code Pink, Iraq and the Occupy Movement, this old couple has attempted to “walk the talk� as the expression goes. I even attempted to “paddle my talk� in a kayak as part of the mosquito fleet that protested the Glacier gravel mine two years ago. What we’ve never done before is “dance the talk.� One Billion Rising was a choreographed dance on Valentine’s Day by women (and the men who love them) to shake the planet’s complacency and acceptance of violence against females. “No more abuses, no more excuses,� sang the participants. “I see a world where we all live safe and free from all oppression. No more rape or incest or abuse. Women are not a possession.� The Vashon Island dancers numbered maybe 200 in all, not that anyone stood still long enough to get an accurate count. Included were little girls and boys no more than six

ACTIVISM By BRIAN BROWN or seven years old, teenagers, young moms, women in their 20s, 30s, 40s, 50s, 60s and older. Let’s not forget the handful of courageous guys who provided gender diversity and brought some good moves to the parking lot in front of US Bank. You go bro. Any dancer will tell you that the legs are the last thing to go. Well, I’m here to tell you that midway through the Rising’s first rehearsal at the Open Space for Arts & Community, I blew out my knee. This was four days before the actual Valentine’s Day event. It happened like this. Our instructors — Nancy Peet, Sara Van Fleet and Julie Gibson — had us dancing pretty much in unison. We were into it. Music blared from the boom box, an upbeat, thumping anthem about women’s empowerment. “We are mothers, we are teachers. We are beautiful, beautiful creatures.�

Thank you Vashon!

With immense gratitude for the awareness, connection and joy the One Billion Rising Vashon Event brought to our community. To each person who practiced these past weeks, either in community or in their own homes to learn the “Break the Chain� dance; to the locations in our community that graciously opened their doors to women, men, children, teens and seniors that wanted to dance together for a cause which time has come; to the inspiration team that joyfully and skillfully guided this incredible event into being; to my dear friends and family that loved and supported me these past two months — thank you for making a difference in the lives of people in this community and in our world. We did a profound thing on February 14th. We sent a powerful message that violence against women must end and when women are empowered, the world changes in unimaginable ways. We look forward to sharing our film about how this movement has positively impacted our community.

The pets say “thank you� for sharing your birthday gift. On Saturday, Feb. 9, a young girl and her mom brought donations for VIPP cats and dogs to the VIPP shelter. The young girl requested pet food and toys to be donated to VIPP in lieu of gifts for her birthday celebration. We forgot to get her name that day and we want to make sure she gets the news that the dogs and cats are enjoying their treats. A big thank you for her generous donation. Sincerely, The cats and dogs at VIPP

Sheila was on my left, diligently following instructions. I was next to her, relying on osmosis. To my right was an energetic young woman named Annie. In the row ahead was blond named Roxy. It happened at that moment when we “broke the chain.� This maneuver required a swivel step as we break repression over our knee. Roxy threw a cute shuffle step into her swivel that I attempted to emulate. It was Roxy’s fault. I limped to the sidelines. In my fantasy, I recall the crowd cheering madly as I was carried out of the arena. There on national television I lift my arm with index finger extended, indicating solidarity with a billion women (and the men who love them). Truth be told, it was the only position — the extended index finger — I truly mastered in the choreographed dance. Four days later, my efforts at the O Space earned me a coveted spot on the wooden bench in front of The Hardware Store Restaurant at the four corners where I watched the surviving dancers in the parking lot of US Bank on Valentine’s Day — “cause I loved, cause I dream, cause I’ve had enough to stop the screams.� — Brian Brown, a writer and activist, lives on Vashon.

Q:

To view this blog & make comments, visit www.vashonislandrealestate.com/blog.html

My neighbor has been making a fuss over trees in my yard. He says they block his view and that we need to have them cut down. He said there is a County ordinance that says you can’t block someone’s view. I love those trees and don’t see any reason to cut them down. I have bird feeders up and there are always lots of birds in those trees, which I love. The trees also shade the west side of our house which gets really hot in the summer. Is there really some kind of law about this?

A:

As far as I can research there is no such rule, ordinance or regulation. In fact, the County encourages people to plant trees. There are, however, some private view covenants on Vashon. The primary ones cover homes in Gold Beach and in parts of the north end of Vashon. View covenants are agreements that are recorded on your deed. You should contact your title company to be sure there are no such covenants in your neighborhood. There are a very few such agreements for individual properties around the island but it is my understanding that they have to be recorded on your title for them to be enforceable. If your neighbor gets really obnoxious you might want to consult an attorney. At the very least the attorney can write your neighbor a letter including a copy of your title to prove that there is no such covenant. You can also consult King County to get a definitive answer to show your neighbor. It’s common to find these covenants and agreement in city neighborhoods where a significant number of houses have a view. From a buyer’s point of view, they feel that since they paid to see the mountain or the water they want that to continue. We have very few places on Vashon that offer that view protection. However, there are those who appreciate all that trees do for us, including giving shade, providing oxygen, offering wildlife habitat and being simply beautiful. For some of us, trees are the view.

Are you meeting your financial goals? Call me for a no obligation, consultation.

A family vacation: OK, so it wasn’t Hawaii February is brutal. February is a test of character, so buck up! February is just same as it ever was. February is glorious! Which kind of Vashonite are you? We have friends with a beach house, and they offered it to us for a mini-retreat. It was an act of pity; we seemed moldy and despondent. OK, that was just me, but I was pathetic enough for the whole family to benefit. I may have perhaps made a mistake in suggesting that our mini-retreat could include chaperoning a five-girl sleepover. Yes, it’s safe to say that was a dubious call. Said sleepover included a shameful lack of vegetables at dinner, a long, incomprehensible charade-like game of skits (during which I had a flash insight that my career had me stuck as a perpetual 11-year-old), submitting to a full-on facial makeover and incessant yammering and laughing until 1 a.m. Don’t tell the other parents. But come on, it’s February, and winter break to boot! We all needed to kick back a bit. Maybe it’s because I’m a professional buffoon, but my kicking back meant I was suddenly in a Steve Martin movie. Around 9 p.m., we realized we should bring our dogs over, since they’d never slept in the house alone, and we’re from Vashon, where that kind of pet treatment is a felony. I’ve written about my dogs before — a wildly neurotic Border Collie and a wildly stupid Great Dane. They were fit to be tied and leapt into the car with a vengeance. I lovingly refer to the Dane as the

ISLAND WAYS By KEVIN JOYCE Marauding Village Idiot on Crack. As such, he’s simply not meant to visit a lovely, Pottery Barn-ish beach cottage. That isn’t ours. In addition to being destructively affectionate, he’s skittish — a combination that, in humans, commonly requires institutionalization. Somehow, he decided the front door of the beach house was evil and wouldn’t enter. The border collie, of course, entered and returned, was told to go away, did so sheepishly, then returned and laid down under me, as I’m trying to force the 105-pound canine toddler monster into the house. The Dane became a massive snake paperweight, lodged into the corner of the front entrance. There was no calming him down, as he was possessed by paranoid delusions that only he could see and whimper about. In an act of kindness and authority, I hoisted and heaved him into the bedroom and onto his waiting dog bed. A February squall was inundating the entrance way. I returned to close the front door and for some reason decided to put all the kids shoes outside, like that would keep everything dry. The shoes all got soaked, and in the morning when the sitter came to

get two of the girls, I got the major stink eye. I decided the whole dog visit was a bad idea, and they were having a lousy time anyway, so I took them home. They were delighted. I returned to the beach house and slept in great comfort through the tempest. I dreamt of Hawaii, which is where most of the island has gone this week. That’s what smart people do in February, either because they have money or they save money, both of which sound like wonderful ideas. They don’t mean to gloat when they tell you, but to the moldy and despondent, it can’t help but feel like gloating. “Yeah, we got a private house on the beach with a swimming pool!� When I ask if that isn’t redundant, I sound bitter. Then I smile and wish them an awesome vacation, and they laugh, toss their hair, and skip away. It’s noon now, we’ve been here all morning. The girls are watching Hitchcock (only on Vashon, only in February), and I sit staring out at buoys, buffleheads and gusts of rain creating myriad undulating designs on the Sound. The truth is, February is poetic. It’s the dark time, but it brings out the best, and the beast, in all of us. Wild sleepovers, the absurdness of pets, and water, water, everywhere. Got gratitude? Hey, don’t tell the beach house owners about all this. I’m pretty sure dogs aren’t allowed.

School foundation’s fundraising drive begins Friday The Vashon Island Public Schools Foundation will kick off its 2013 fundraising campaign with milk and cookies and a display of student art at Two Wall Gallery during Gallery Cruise Friday evening. Over the past three years, the foundation has raised $1.5 million from islanders. Without community support, Vashon’s schools would have lost funding for art, music and drama as well as advanced placement and vocational classes, organizers say.

During the First Friday event, foundation board members will be on hand to discuss how the organization’s funds affect the quality of Vashon’s schools.

VIPP elects officers Geoff Fletcher has been elected as board chair of Vashon Island Pet Protectors, joining three other officers, Sheila Eckman, Leslie Frye and Judy Kullman. Also on the board are founder Barbara Drinkwater, Kasia Stahancyk, Marcia Bruya, John De Groen, Kira Bacon, Elaine Summers, Barbara Schroeder and Cindy Pollock.

He said he is especially excited to share photographs captured during a five-day solo trek in the Himalayas in Nepal. One entire wall will recreate a sunrise that he saw on that walk. Visitors can select a favorite photograph from the show to purchase as a greeting card or postcard, which Kasden will print during the reception.

Paschkis and Emminger, who is her husband, have created a portrait of McEldowney that will serve as a centerpiece for the exhibit at VALISE and a reminder of the passion McEldowney brought to her work as a dealer, collector and supporter of the arts. “She touched many, many people with her vision and generosity,� Paschkis said. “She’s an extraordinary person and she is still with us.� The opening for “Lessons from the Heart� will take place on Friday, from 6 to 9 p.m., at VALISE.

7*("CPBSEIJSFTOFXGBSNFSTNBSLFUNBOBHFS Johanna Guevin, a Georgia native who recently moved to the area from Sitka, Alaska, has been named the new manager for Vashon’s thriving weekly farmers market. Guevin, 31, begins her new job March 1. She was selected for the part-time position from a pool of about 30 applicants, said Amy Hildebrandt, who chairs the Vashon Island Growers Association (VIGA), which runs the market. VIGA board members said they were thrilled to be able to hire Guevin, who recently got a degree in food systems and sustainable agriculture from The Evergreen State College and who ran the farmers market in Sitka last summer. Celina Yarkin, a VIGA board member, said Guevin “is an all-around good fit for the market. She’s also really wonderful, personable and warm. I think she’ll be great.� Hildebrandt said she was particularly pleased that Guevin has experience in managing a farmers market. “We’re really lucky to have found her,� she added. Guevin, who stopped by The Beachcomber’s office on Monday before dashing off to a VIGA board meeting, said she first discovered Vashon when she was attending Evergreen and, as part of her degree program there, toured most of the sustainable farms in the region. That tour took her to Vashon, where she visited Sea Breeze Farm, met Brandon Sheard of

Johanna Guevin starts her new job March 1. Farmstead Meatsmith and got to know the island. “I was just enchanted by Vashon,� she said. Her husband’s job took her to Sitka, where they lived in a log cabin in the woods and got involved in the Sitka Local Foods Network, she said. He’s deputy general manager for the Sitka Tribe of Alaska, a job he’ll continue by splitting his time between Vashon and Sitka. Guevin said she and her husband wanted to move to the Seattle area because of a number of family members live in the region. When she saw the farmers market position posted on VIGA’s website, she

said, “It all just fell into place.�’ Guevin replaces Rebecca Wittman, an islander who held the market manager post last year and who replaced Allison Bockus. Bockus was the market manager for nearly two years. The market grew significantly under both Wittman and Bockus’ management, said Merrilee Runyan, the former VIGA board chair. Last year alone, gross sales climbed 30 percent, she said; the prior year also saw double-digit growth. Runyan attributed the market’s recent successes to Wittman’s ad campaigns and use of social media as well as both Wittman and Bockus’ management skills. What’s more, Runyan said, “Our farmers have really upped their game. They bring more food longer, create beautiful displays and offer a wide variety of stuff.� But the turnover for the post of market manager has been high, Runyan acknowledged. The wage is low for the amount of work it entails and the job requires the manager to give up every Saturday from mid-April to mid-December, she said. As a result, VIGA is trying to figure out a way to “make the job a sustainable job,� Runyan said. “We are looking at ways to raise some money. If we could pay a little more and make it a year-round job, we’d love to do that,� she said. — Leslie Brown

Some customers suggested he add spirits to the mix, he said. “Adding liquor and other new items will enhance the shopping experience and make our store unique,� he added in an email. Currently, only Vashon Liquor sells hard alcohol on Vashon. The small shop went from being a contract store, selling liquor provided by the state Liquor Control Board, to a private shop with its own inventory seven months ago, after Initiative 1183 passed. Under the initiative, any retail space 10,000 square feet in size or larger can also sell spirits as part of its other inventory. Neither of Vashon’s two grocery stores have opted to do so. Brian Smith, a spokesman for the Liquor Control Board, said permits generally take 45 to 90 days to get approved. VanBuskirk applied for his permit on Feb. 15. He said he hopes to begin offering liquor, beer and wine as soon as he receives a permit. “We will stock top-shelf items from Washington state to support the local state economy plus some other popular brands,� he said.

The Academy Awards | Vashon-style

A fine affair Vashon’s 16th celebration of the Academy Awards took place Sunday evening at Vashon Theatre, where several islanders made their way down the red carpet before entering the bustling movie house. Sharing mistress of ceremonies duties this year were Jennifer Sutherland and Tami Brockway Joyce, best known as the Washington State Fairies singing telegram company but debuting for Oscar Night as Nan and Fancy Filson, lounge singers from Boca Raton. As in years past, a panel of judges — this year comprised of Elizabeth Ripley, Elizabeth Nye and John Staczek — determined best costumes for a number of categories. The winners were Raena Joyce, best dressed girl; Johnny Joyce, best dressed boy; Paco Joyce, best dressed PJs; Isaac and Ellie Hughes, celebrity look-alike (Isaac as Osama bin Laden, Ellie as Abraham Lincoln); Jonathan Kuzma, best dressed adult male; Ann Jacobs, best dressed adult female; Jessika Satori, outrageous or most creative “Cher� award; Lucien Brillant, best dressed teen male; Coral Sky, best dressed teen female; Jeff and Gail Larson, best dressed couple; Marc Pease, best ballot. Some of the stars who made the scene included, top right, Eileen and Gordon Wolcott, owners of the theater, with their grandson, being interviewed by Leslie McMichael; bottom left, Isaac and Ellie Hughes; bottom middle, Jennifer Sutherland and Tami Brockway Joyce; and bottom right, Van Crozier and Yvonne Pitrof. -FTMJF#SPXO4UBGG1IPUPT

Kevin Kim-Murphy goes for a run at the former Glacier mining site, which King County purchased in 2010.

Chris Cuevas

Chris Cuevas, one of the most amazing men in the world left us on 2/19/2013. Christopher David Joseph Paul Cuevas was born on 12/22/70, in San Pablo, CA, to Helen Pearl (McCoury) & Stephen Cuevas . He attended Pinole Valley High School and graduated in 1988. Chris was working in Heber Springs, AK, in August, 1990, looking forward to attending both business & culinary school in the fall. Chris did not drink, but unbeknownst to him, got into a vehicle with someone who did. The driver caused a terrible accident that left Chris a C4-C5 quadriplegic. At the time of the accident, the emergency tube that was inserted to save his life punctured his stomach & shredded his esophagus, which caused him losing his voice box. He endured many surgeries and faced death many times. But through it all, he was the ‘come-back kid’. For the next 22 years, Chris was a resident of Vashon Island, living with his wonderful mother, who was his full time caregiver. Through many hardships, Chris somehow woke up smiling every day, in spite of being in his bed full time. He was always caring, loving, a trickster, thoughtful, forgiving, and a true warrior. Chris had many interests: cooking shows & fine food, current events & politics, collecting many things, such as robots, Star Wars items, Day of the Dead, Dogs Playing Poker, lots & lots of movies of all kinds, Sponge bob, Pez dispensers, Hot Wheels, marbles, and baseball caps of all types. Even though he was confined to his room most of his adult life, he was loved by the local fire department and was made an honorary chief. He loved everyone at Vashon Pharmacy, Vashon Thriftway, Dr. Weispfenning and staff, KRONOS, Eva from Vashon Roasterie, & the delivery staff from Williams Oil. He truly embraced all the community as a whole with his heart. Also, there were many unsung heroes from Hawaii, Colorado, Montana, California, South Carolina, France-you all know who you are! Chris leaves behind his wonderful and caring mother Pearl McCoury. Words cannot describe the close relationship they’ve shared for over 22 years. His leaving has truly left a hole in her heart. He also leaves behind sister Mia Sara Cuevas & her four beautiful daughters, brother Troy McCoury, Aunt Theda and Uncle Robert Moore, brothers Darrell Magana and Jonathan Cuevas, plus Aunt Laura, Grandma Doris, Uncle Tim & very close friends Jan & Tony Saulewicz. One of the most important things that Chris wanted everyone to know is when you are in a situation like his, it’s what’s on the inside that counts, not the outside. Supporting your friends and loved ones when things take a different turn in life (such as illness or disabilities) is critical for life’s survival. It’s hard to heal or find one’s ‘new normal’ without ongoing love and follow-through with help. A special memorial will be held in Chris’ honor at a future date. Funeral arrangements have been made through Island Funeral Service. Please visit our guest book at www.islandfuneral.com.

all be maintained — though no new ones built — and a small, gravel parking lot would be added at the end of S.W. 264th Street, on the property’s western border. The county would also build three picnic shelters or picnic areas with outhouses and regrade some of the land closest to the shore for easier access to the beach. Per the committee’s request, the county also hopes to install interpretive signs around the property. The signs would tell not only of the site’s ecology but its history, from when Native Americans inhabited Maury Island to when the county, in a watershed moment, purchased the site from Glacier Northwest, a subsidiary of a Japanese-based corporation that had plans to significantly expand its mining operations there.

Amy Carey, a technical advisor on the committee and director of Preserve Our Islands, the nonprofit that was instrumental in bringing the purchase to fruition, said she was pleased with the county’s plans to do some minimal development at the site, encouraging recreational use. “A great group of people has been working for months on this, and we put together a very thoughtful management recommendation that reflects the value of the site, both to the community and from an ecological perspective as well,� she said. The 250-acre swath’s designation as a natural area — not a park — means King County will place a high priority on restoring and preserving the former mining site, which is full of Scotch broom and other invasive weeds. Per county regulations, only passive recreation will be allowed, 4503:$0/5*/6&4 /&951"(&

Mary-Anna Hops Mary-Anna Hops, beloved wife, most loving and loyal friend, extreme animal lover, avid reader, fabulous cook, lover of art and road trips, great smokin’ buddy, and mermaid spirit, died February 13, 2013 of complications during a medical procedure. Daughter of Benjamin and Betty Hops, she was born July 7, 1952 in New York. She spent her childhood in southern California and her young adult years in the San Francisco Bay Area. In 1986, she moved to Seattle where she was a well known and loved travel agent on Capitol Hill. Since 1995 she has made her home in Dockton, Maury Island with her life partner of 23 years, Judy Pells. October 26, 2008 was one of the happiest days of her life when she legally married her partner of 19 years surrounded by dear friends and family at the home of her friend Ken Schirado in Oakland, CA. Time spent with Judy, her many dear friends, at the ocean with her dogs, (most recently with her lab Sadie), her pets at home, reading, and eating delicious food brought her the most joy. She proudly claimed the titles of Food Snob and Crazy Old Cat Lady. In her work over the years, providing excellent customer service was always her desire and accomplishment, including most recently at Fair Isle Animal Clinic. She had a special gift of making each contact a sincere and supportive one. She is preceded in death by her most cherished mother, Betty Hops. Survivors include her wife, Judy, her father, Benjamin Hops, her brother Jerry Hops, and her beloved current cats MeMe, Gracie, Arlo, Tolliver, and Tulio. She leaves behind a world full of friends who feel blessed to have been a part of her extended family, always surrounded by her light, love, and support. Thank you Mary-Anna, for being here for us always. You are held near and dear in our hearts as we picture you smiling as you swim endlessly in warm calm waters with dolphins and whales. We love you Mary-Anna Mermaid Hops. The Snapdragon CafÊ is hosting a memorial gathering on Sunday, March 10, at 5pm. A celebration of her life will be held at her home in Dockton later this year on July 7, her birthday. Donations to Vashon Island Pet Protectors or Baahaus are preferred in lieu of flowers. •

meaning no off-leash dogs, camping, off-road vehicles or dirt bikes. Horseback riding will be allowed. The last time DNRP officials visited Vashon, they got an earful from dirt bike riders who said they had ridden at the site for years under Glacier’s ownership and were upset county regulations would prohibit them. A group even wrote to the county to request that dirt bikes be allowed, Blumen said. But when the citizen advisory group formed, none of them stepped forward to join it, she added. Some on the advisory group felt dirt bikes would only further degrade the site, and everyone agreed it wasn’t worth tackling county regulations and other significant hurdles to try to allow them. “There wasn’t a strong voice for encouraging off-road use,� Blumen said. Still, she said, the door hasn’t completely closed to different uses at the site. Blumen expects that a friends group will eventually form for the natural area, and the draft plan has been written so that such a group could make additional decisions about the site’s use, such a specifying an area for off-leash dogs or vehicles. “We did make a major point in this plan that it has to be seen as adaptive,� Blumen said. “After a few years of management and cleanup, we’ll be open to looking at adding types of passive recreation.� Dirt bikers aren’t the only group vying for use of the site. The expanse

of Maury shoreline is a favorite for scuba divers, who often tie their boats to old pilings there. Under state rules, all the creosote pilings must be removed. Rules also prohibit dropping anchors off the protected shoreline. But Karlista Rickerson, an avid Vashon diver who is also on the advisory committee, said it would be a shame if she and other divers — more than 900 a year visit from Tacoma alone — no longer had easy access. Rickerson is now pushing for the installation of a buoy or other structure to tie a boat to. She said the county is open to the idea, but the diving community will likely have to work with DOE on getting an exception to the rules. “Nobody has told me to shut up yet,� she said with a laugh, referring to the other committee members. “They’ve been very supportive of each other.� The committee has wrestled with some other tough issues as well, such as what to do with the large pieces of mining equipment still at the site. Some think it should be removed, while other think it should stay as a relic of sorts. “I would prefer to see it recycled as scrap metal,� Gerstle said. “For so many people it hardly seems natural at all.� Carey, however, said many islanders think the old, rusty apparatus adds to the site. “Everyone in the group sees different appeals in it, but the overall idea is they are interesting visual aesthetics,� she said.

Blumen said the county would have the mining apparatus, including two tall, metal structures, assessed for liability. The structures may all have to go, she said, or perhaps some parts could stay or be transformed into public art. “We’ll see if they’re really safe, or if we can save a portion of them for interpretive, onsite art,� she said. By far one of the hottest topics at committee meetings, which are open to the public, has been the site’s name. Members threw out a plethora of ideas, suggesting names that could pay tribute to Maury Island, the area’s natural history or the site’s historic purchase. The group finally settled tentatively on naming it Maury Island Natural Area and allowing the community to name separate trails or areas of the site, much like it has done with Island Center Forest. “That happens informally on a lot of our ecological lands or natural areas here on the island,� Carey said. “It’s a nice pathway to recognize a lot of different interests and a lot of different points on the site. You could have Orca Lookout, that sort of thing, bring a little something for everyone into it.�

Officials from the King County Department of Natural Resources and Parks will discuss the draft management plan and take questions and comments from 6:30 to 8:30 p.m. Wednesday, March 6, at McMurray Middle School.
