Oil globs from Tacoma spill wash ashore on Maury Impact from

arsenic-laced plume not as extensive, state says

State agency responds quickly, sending crews to clean up the mess By NATALIE JOHNSON Staff Writer

Some called them orange globs. Others called them grease balls. At first no one knew exactly what they were. But almost as soon as the sticky, orange balls that washed up on the southeastern shore of Maury Island were reported to the state, officials were on the ferry to investigate. And within two days, the grease balls — which were eventually linked to a lubricant spill in Tacoma — were cleaned off the popular stretch of beach between Point Robinson and the Maury Island Marine Park. “It was a really phenomenal effort that they got it cleaned up so quickly,” said Amy Carey, a local environmentalist and director of Preserve Our Islands who first reported the incident to the state. The globs, which ranged from an inch across to the size of a Nerf football, were spotted last week by an islander walking on the beach on Maury. The man posted an inquiry on the Facebook

island within two hours of me calling them,” Carey said. DOE not only sent a crew to investigate the report but also set up a website advising people not to touch the orange balls and to contact the state if they discov-

ered balls along other stretches of shoreline. “It’s not a material we’ve had a tremendous amount of experience with,” said Larry Altose, a SEE CLEANUP, 11

Vashon nursery loses trees, shrubs in a huge heist By LESLIE BROWN Staff Writer

Kathy Wheaton stands at the end of a row of maples. Until she was burglarized last week, the row was full of trees.

A customer last Friday afternoon told Kathy Wheaton, owner of Kathy’s Corner, that he was interested in one of several Japanese maples she had for sale. When he came back Saturday morning and found that the one he’d had his eye on was gone, he asked her why she had sold it. “I didn’t,” she answered, puzzled. That’s when she discovered that once again — the sixth time in eight months, in fact — her small nursery on the southern edge of town had been burglarized. The Japanese maple wasn’t the only item snatched, however. Also taken were several other Japanese maples, three magnolias, three dogwoods, several birches, dozens of pots of hydrangeas, pots of japonicas and more — all told, an estimated $10,000 worth of inventory.

Far fewer homes on Vashon and Maury island will be eligible for a publicly funded yard cleanup program after a new state analysis indicated arsenic contamination in the region is not nearly as extensive as officials originally believed. The state Department of Ecology announced in 2011 that it would undertake a neighborhoodby-neighborhood sampling effort to find and remove arsenic-laced soil from those areas most contaminated by Asarco’s industrial plume, which cast a shadow over the region for decades. The first iteration of the state’s map included approximately 2,400 residences on the island — all of Maury and the southern half of Vashon as far north as S.W. 204th Street — as well as another 15,000 properties in other parts of the region. But over the last several months, state officials have worked to create a new version of the map, based on far more data and selected soil samples throughout the region. As a result, only about 720 parcels on Vashon and Maury are now included in the state’s yard program service area — the southern third of Maury Island (a swath that extends as far north as S.W. 260th Street) and the southern tip of Vashon. Throughout the region, the service area now takes in around 7,000 parcels, down from an initial estimate of 17,000, according to Hannah Aoyagi, an outreach and education specialist in the Ecology Department’s Toxics Cleanup Program. The first map, she said, “was a pretty rough estimate.” The state’s SEE PLUME, 12

George Page closed La Boucherie, his highly acclaimed farm-to-table restaurant, last week, saying it made more sense to focus his efforts on two Seattle-based farmers markets. He plans to offer occasional dinners and special events at the intimate eatery on the western edge of town and to continue to lease the adjacent space as a butcher shop. But the butchery will no longer be open to the public as a retail space, and the restaurant will no longer offer a la carte meals to walk-in diners, he said. “It just turns out that 80 to 90 percent of our sales happen at the farmers markets in the city, ‌ so it just seemed to be the logical choice for us to close the restaurant,â€? he said. La Boucherie, or “butcher shopâ€? in French, opened in 2008, providing an outlet for products from Sea Breeze Farm, a small, north-end enterprise on Vashon where Page and his crew make cheeses, raise animals for meat, ferment wine and create other high-end foodstuffs for gourmet diners. Since then, the tiny restaurant has garnered strong reviews from Seattle-based publications and has developed a loyal following. But Page said he and his staff were spreading themselves too thin trying to keep the restaurant open and juggle the many other demands of creating products to meet a

growing market for locally sourced foods. “We have a farm and a dairy and a winery and a cheese plant and a restaurant, and we’re doing two farmers markets. As much as I want to do everything, I only have so much bandwidth,� he said. Under the new business plan, Sea Breeze will continue to sell cheese, wine and meat at the University District and Ballard farmers markets, using its presence there to invite people to special events at the farm and eatery, Page said. Patrons, for instance, would come to Vashon for a tour of the farm and a wine- and cheese-tasting, followed by dinner at La Boucherie. “We’ll refine it into a few high-value events per month. For us, it seems the best way to showcase our products in the restaurant is to do events for a limited seating of 20 to 30 folks,� Page said. He said the approach will enable him to cater to a Seattle crowd that has supported his endeavor. “I’m stunned and humbled by the following and the commitment we have from our farmers market customers,� he said. But he also doesn’t plan to walk away from Vashon patrons and hopes to continue to offer invitation-only events for islanders as well, he said. “Stay tuned. We’re still here. We’re doing our best to meet the needs,� he said.

After 31 years, owners of Fair Isle Animal Clinic sell to a colleague By LESLIE BROWN Staff Writer

Don Wolczko’s early days at Fair Isle Animal Clinic were trying ones. The young veterinarian was on call every night of the week. His hours were long. It didn’t help that for two months he lived at the clinic, sleeping on the floor with his two dogs. The small Vashon-based clinic has come a long way since Wolczko, a single man without children at the time, purchased it in 1982. Within a few months, he brought in Nell Coffman, another veterinarian, to co-own it with him. Over the years, other vets have joined the bustling place, transforming it into a large, full-scale operation, busy enough to support four veterinarians and 17 other employees. Now, Wolczko and Coffman are passing the torch. They’ll continue to work part-time at the clinic, but they’ve sold the practice to Dana Ness, a veterinarian who came on board in October 2003. Both Wolczko and Coffman feel great about their decision. They had solicitations from corporate chains interested in Fair Isle, Wolczko said. “For the practice and for the community, we really felt that Dana was by far our best option,� he said. Coffman agreed. “I adore Dana,� she said. “Once we decided we’d sell to her, it didn’t make sense to wait.� Ness, for her part, said she was pleased for the opportunity, a perfect segue in her professional life. “It’s a great place. Why wouldn’t I want to buy it?� she said. Clients won’t notice much in the way of changes, she said. In fact, the actual purchase took place Jan. 1. The clinic’s fourth veterinarian, Alan Givotovsky, will con-

But in selling the clinic, Wolczko and Coffman say, they’ll have more time to pursue other aspects of animal care; Coffman, for instance, will continue to take courses enhancing her skills in acupuncture for pets. “I love having less administrative work to do,� Coffman said. And Wolczko is looking forward to more time at home, pursuing his wide range of interests. He hopes to take up welding, plans to build a solar tracker for his front yard and hopes to construct “a sailing vessel big enough to carry some freight on it,� he said. “I’m just in my late 50s. I’ve got another

20 years to do something else,� he said. Wolczko and Coffman got to know each other as young vets straight out of vet school in 1982, when they both worked at a Kirkland clinic. Wolczko wanted to work in a rural setting, and he bicycled to Vashon one Sunday afternoon in April. He discovered the clinic — called Martin Animal Clinic, owned and operated by Ron Martin at the time — and, even though it was a Sunday, found Martin quietly at work there. Wolczko and Martin had a great conversation, Wolczko recalled. “A month later, I decided to buy the practice,� he said. Wolczko was 26 at the time. The practice was far different from the

one he’d left, a place where he mostly saw dogs and cats. Fair Isle is considered a mixed animal practice, and for Wolczko and later Coffman, it meant treating llamas choking on fruit, delivering lambs stuck in the birth canal and treating the occasional eight-foot-long boa constrictor. Asked about one of his most challenging moments as a vet, Wolczko mentioned the time a horse fell into a well and had to be lifted out of it — alive and well — with a backhoe. “It turned out very well for the horse,â€? Wolczko said. Over the years, he and Coffman have had to sedate deer helplessly tangled in fishing net, rescue a feral cow on the west side and stitch up far too many goats and sheep attacked by dogs. They’ve also sat with many people who’ve made the painful decision to end a beloved pet’s life. “I feel very blessed to have experienced that — dealing with life and death ‌ of an individual a person cherishes. So revealing and raw and real,â€? Wolczko said. Ness said she’s eager to continue the tradition that Wolczko and Coffman began more than 30 years, with the only big changes being ones clients won’t notice — such as a move toward a paperless system. “Ever since I was hired on, the intent was that I’d buy into the practice or buy out Don and Nell when they were ready to sell,â€? Ness said. “Not all vets aspire to practice ownership. But for me, it seemed like a good fit.â€?

OPEN HOUSE Fair Isle Animal Clinic will host an open house to discuss changes, answer questions and show their appreciation to their customers from 2 to 4 p.m. on Saturday, March 24.

Strawberry Festival is in full swing at the chamber New director plans the island’s 104th festival By NATALIE JOHNSON Staff Writer

Jim Marsh has been spending so much time thinking about the Strawberry Festival, he says, that he sometimes gets confused about what month it is. “We’re living in the third weekend in July already,� said Marsh, the director of the Vashon Maury Island Chamber of Commerce. “I feel like everyday my mind is so in July that I think I’m getting a suntan.� Indeed, when Marsh took the helm at Vashon’s chamber nearly a year ago, he also took on the responsibility of planning what is by far the island’s biggest event, a threeday festival in July that consumes Vashon town, draws nearly 35,000 people to the island and brings in about half of the chamber’s annual income. Marsh, a well-spoken former communications executive with an off-beat sense of humor, was hired shortly before last year’s festival and shadowed former director Debi Richards as she planned and executed the weekend. “I said it was the last Strawberry Festival where I get to sit back and enjoy it because I wasn’t in it all year,� Marsh joked, sitting in his office last week. “There’s a difference when you’re planning the party and when you’re going to the party.� The chamber’s planning for Strawberry Festival 2013 began the day after last year’s event ended, Marsh said, when chamber members met to debrief and throw out ideas for the next year. Now Marsh and Sue Stinson, the chamber’s office and events manager, have been in full swing festival planning since January. The big decisions have all been made, Marsh said, and now the

smaller details — vendors, musicians, sponsors — are starting to fall into place. “There are some details that remain unfinished ‘til the last moment and even sometimes during. It’s like any big event,� he said. This year’s festival has brought its own set of challenges. Two of the festival’s main venues in town will be unavailable in July, leaving the chamber scrambling to find alternatives. Construction on the Vashon Library has blocked the grassy lawns at Ober Park that normally hold a concert stage and artists’ booths. So this year the stage will be located farther back in the park, and artists will sell their wares in the parking lot in front of the chamber offices. A local developer is also making plans to break ground this summer in the large field behind Vashon Village where the carnival is normally located, bumping the carnival to the Vashon Plaza parking lot. “If you move one piece of the puzzle, every other piece might shift too. There are limited places to put things,� Marsh said. But with the help of Stinson and local merchants, Marsh said, he’s pulling the jampacked weekend together and working to bring some new elements to this year’s festival. All the Strawberry Festival staples are returning, including the parades, wine and jazz event and beer garden. The concert stages will be back, and Marsh and Pete Welch, who books the festival’s bands, are planning for even more music this year. Marsh seemed especially excited about his campaign to put the “strawberry� back in Strawberry Festival. For years, he said, visitors have expressed confusion about the apparent lack of strawberries at the festival. Last year the chamber floated the idea of changing the festival’s name to Vashon Festival, but after a small community outcry,

/BUBMJF+PIOTPO4UBGG1IPUP

Jim Marsh became the director of the Vashon Maury Island Chamber of Commerce a year ago. the idea was dropped. Marsh was careful not give his personal opinion on the festival’s name, but said that for now the chamber has no plans to do away with “strawberry.� “Right now it’s the zeitgeist of the island to stay Strawberry Festival,� Marsh said. Along that vein, Marsh said, he’s instead challenging merchants to find ways to incorporate strawberries — the actual fruit or otherwise — into this summer’s activities. For instance, the chamber will offer free entry into the classic car parade to drivers who donate a jar of strawberry jam to the food bank. “I’ve asked everybody to think strawberry,� he said. “There are so many different creative people. ... If we say let’s try to follow this theme, I think people will be surprised.� Creative thinking has marked Marsh’s time at the chamber so far. Merchants have noted how the sometimes silly director throws out off-kilter ideas, such as installing an inflatable gorilla in town to greet drivers. His latest idea? A key to Vashon, perhaps artfully made by a local artist, to present to notable figures who visit the island, such as K.D. Lang, who played a benefit concert

last fall. “Other cities give keys to the city,� he said, holding up a sketch he made of a framed key surrounded by beach glass. In all seriousness, Marsh said, he was happy to report that the chamber has thrived over the past year. The nonprofit organization is on firm financial footing, and thanks in part to a plan for growth created by the board under Richards, it is seeing an uptick in membership as well as an increase in member participation in its events and offerings. “Not only do we have members coming in, but members want to do stuff and get to do stuff with each other,� he said. Finding his stride as chamber director while also planning for his first Strawberry Festival has made for some long days at the office, he said. But it’s been a fun process, he noted, adding that he prefers to think of the chamber not as being in charge of the festival, but rather stewarding a beloved island tradition. “It’s a big task, but it’s a joyful responsibility,� he said. “What are we responsible for? A big party. It’s not like we’re planning an invasion. It’s a big party, and that’s a great thing to be responsible for.�

A vision for Vashon: our own justice system

EDITORIAL

Smelter plume project affords us an opportunity A new map that refines and narrows the extent of the Asarco smelter plume on Vashon Island is good news for a simple reason: It’s based on better science. When it comes to the region’s arsenic-laced soil, a legacy of nearly a century of copper smelting in the region, the issue isn’t the impact contamination might have on property values. It’s not what we want to hear that matters. What’s needed is accuracy for the sake of health and safety. The Department of Ecology is to be commended for engaging in an iterative process, 5IFLJOEPGBSTFOJDUIBUGFMM hiring someone preeminent in the area of spatial analyGSPNUIFTLZEVSJOHUIF heyday of Ruston’s copper sis and refining its map as got better information. TNFMUJOHJTJOPSHBOJDBOEJT itSome might find the change considered toxic. in the state’s analysis suspicious. We see it as a kind of transparency that is welcome in a project as ambitious and far-reaching as the state’s effort to clean up residential yards within the boundaries of a 1,000-square-mile plume, considered the largest contaminated site in the state. State officials hope to begin the project later this year. What that means is that teams will knock on doors at homes that lie within this smaller cleanup service area, ask permission to sample soils and, if they find elevated levels of arsenic in high-use areas — gardens or play areas, for instance — devise a site-specific plan for soil removal or capping. At most homes, they likely won’t find a problem. Arsenic does not decompose or move downward through the soils; it will remain permanently in the top layers of the soil. But the process of building and landscaping a site often means that arsenic is removed, covered up or significantly diluted. Those houses built after the smelter closed in 1986 likely have seen enough soil disturbance and landscaping to mitigate the effects. But the situation could be far different at older homes on the island or at places where there’s been little soil disturbance. And lest one think there’s no problem with arsenic, some would suggest you think again. Public health officials are not terribly worried about naturally occurring, or organic, arsenic. But the kind that fell from the sky during the heyday of Ruston’s copper smelting is inorganic, and it’s considered toxic and harmful to children or others who inadvertently ingest it. The state program — covered by Asarco’s bankruptcy — is providing a remarkable opportunity for islanders to find out what’s happening on their swath of land and address any contamination that is found. Information is a powerful thing. Better yet is information followed up by an action plan. We’re lucky to be handed this opportunity. We hope many take full advantage of it.

As we head into increasingly challenging times of rapid change, resources we rely on as an island community grow scarcer and more expensive. Road maintenance, school funding, police protection, ferry service and food security are a few things that come to mind. Wisdom and common sense call us to act now to develop community resources that will create resilience to help us ride the waves of change. Some island groups and individuals are already moving to increase our ability to meet our own needs, knowing, of course, that we remain very much a part of an increasingly interdependent world. All Island Forum (AIF) has a vision to join these efforts. Imagine a day on Vashon when people in conflict or needing more just and substantial resolutions of community disputes know where to go to find skilled support. Imagine a restorative justice process that goes beyond accusation, blame, litigation and penalties. For us, restorative justice involves inquiring about and uncovering the deeper needs for fairness among disputants, repairing and restoring broken relationships and restoring larger senses of trust and safety among conflicting parties — all while taking into account the island’s environmental and community needs. We imagine trained restorative justice practitioners, meeting facilitators, peer panels, wisdom circles and mediation services. Education and public celebration will be crucial pieces of the vision — compassionate courage made visible and known. Imagine a local “peace prize� to celebrate the

spirit, tenacity and inner leadership required to resolve a conflict peacefully. Maybe an entire family or organization is recognized for a difficult passage they’ve navigated compassionately. As All Island Forum moves forward, we seek to define a role that gives meaning and direction to our efforts to provide a collaborative, participatory and effective forum for community dialogue and action. Compassion and respect accompanied by courage, patience and persistence can be the foundation for navigating the challenges we will face as we grapple with hard choices and decisions. Conflict in our community offers an opportunity for acknowledgment of needs and equitable and restorative solutions,

LETTERS TO THE EDITOR Bookstore owner

4DIBSQGXBTSFNBSLBCMF Reflecting on years past and my friendship with Martha Scharpf brought many warm memories. As detailed in a recent article (“When body washed ashore, a woman came back home, daughter says,� Feb. 27), health developments had clearly been difficult for her, and her passing quite poignant.

I enjoyed knowing Martha in a couple of ways. Literary, curious and knowledgeable about books and beyond, she was also consistently supportive of a number of us in the arts. Books by the Way was a favorite venue for music performance: Martha encouraged our duo, long-time island violinist Julie Blakemore along with me on flute, as well as Wishes A’Plenty — Merna Hecht’s magical storytelling punctuated by flute-violin

— Mary G.L. Shackelford and Doug Dolstad are active in the All-Island Forum.

All Island Forum will hold a community conversation, “A Vision for Vashon: Our Own Homegrown Community Justice System,� from 3 to 5 p.m. Sunday, March 24, at the Vashon Presbyterian Church. The forum is free and open to all. Those with questions, concerns, ideas, information and/or resources to share can contact any of the following: Doug Dolstad at dpdolstad@ gmail.com, John Runyan at jrmrv@aol.com, Karen Nelson at heartgreen@ yahoo.com, John Dancey at dancey27@comcast.net, Amy Wolff at aseawolff@hotmail.com, Mary Shackelford at mgls53@comcast.net and Kathy Ostrom at bei_tomo@yahoo.com.

STAFF PUBLISHER: ADMINISTRATIVE COORDINATOR: CIRCULATION:

All Island Forum is intentionally directing our efforts toward creating the atmosphere that will make a comprehensive community justice system possible — with a feedback loop to measure, adjust and celebrate successes. AIF forums have begun the work of building our capacity through education, skills development and sharing a common language for understanding and responding to conflict. We will continue these educational and outreach efforts through forums and community conversations. As participation grows, we will move in new directions to offer hands-on workshops to develop listening and speaking skills, create a resource inventory to identify skilled mediators and meeting facilitators who are available for community service, form an elder circle to advise groups and individuals and help illuminate annual community priorities, identify peer panels, wisdom circles and/ or skilled mediation services to air and address specific conflicts and initiate restorative justice circles. We hope this vision speaks to many islanders.

I have been bike riding all over Island Center Forest very regularly for quite some time. A group of us go religiously and fervently discuss the plethora of said poop on a regular basis. However, we feel that the real poopertrators are the horse owners. I guess that it is easy to ignore your pony’s pies when they fall behind you on the trail, although they do make a decided plopping sound. I wish that the horse owners would please pick up after themselves. For the record, six of us rode the trails on Sunday. We counted 48 equine ejec-

Island Lumber

$PNQFUJUJPONBZCFCFOFGJDJBM GPS7BTIPOSFTJEFOUT WJTJUPST Island Lumber’s move to sell liquor has raised questions not just about access to intoxicants, but also about “harmful� competition. Competition, like it or not, is part of our capitalist society, and it doesn’t mean the big guys always win. If island businesses compete strictly for the island dollar, Island Lumber is well-positioned to take business away from our small liquor store, our boutique pet shop, even our sporting and gift shops. So, one survival strategy for Vashon’s small, neighborhood stores is to attract business from off-island — a potentially costly promotional effort if shops undertake it alone. However, a less costly strategy is to join forces and “package� the unique character of Vashon Island as it is exemplified in our small shops, unique restaurants, art galleries, musical and theatrical venues, boutique farms, parks, seaside and wooded vacation rentals, compact and accessible outdoor adventure activities and more. It is by attracting off-islanders — and

Page 7

their money — to our unique character that we level the competitive business playing field on the island. Visitors who know what Vashon offers don’t come here to get the “big box� shopping they can get on the mainland. They come here to experience our rural, artistic and independent spirit; they come to interact with friendly shopkeepers who are genuinely happy to see them. And when they need the services our “big box� establishments offer, they can get them right here. In this scenario, rather than draining business from island entrepreneurs, the Island Lumber types stand in support of the community’s economic diversity. When our small businesses thrive, we all do. — Susan McCabe

-VNCFSBOEMJRVPSEPOUNJY JOPOFTUPSF I was very disappointed to read that Island Lumber is planning sales of alcoholic beverages. When our two grocery stores had the option just over a year ago to add hard liquor to wine and beer sales, they passed, and the small Vashon Liquor Store was able to continue in business. Now I understand that the Vashon IGA is going to add hard liquor. That is, at least, an appropriate place. In my opinion, a large lumber and hardware store is not an

appropriate place. Since one only buys glasses once in a while, but new bottles from which to fill them frequently, I fail to understand the statement that having the liquor available with the glasses will enhance the Island Lumber shopping experience and make that store unique. I urge them to reconsider, and I also urge the community to continue its support of Vashon Liquor. — Ellen Kritzman

A big, big thank you to the Vashon community‌ All of us at Vashon Community Care send a big, big thank you to the Vashon community for your generous support helping us refinance our mortgage. On Monday, Feb. 25, VCC closed on the refinance, which will save us $21,000 per month, $250,000 per year and $10 million over the life of the loan. You helped us raise $600,000 in 2012 to make the re-fi happen. Now that it’s done, we pledge that VCC will be here for the long haul, supporting our aging population with a range of housing and services. What a remarkable community we live in. Lynn Davison, outgoing president of the VCC Board of Directors, on behalf of our board, staff, residents and other recipients of services, families, and volunteers.

Q:

My wife and I are ready to buy a home but we keep hearing how hard it is to get a loan. We’re almost afraid to apply in case we get turned down. Can you tell us if we would qualify?

A:

The reason that people say it’s hard to get a loan is that the banks and lenders have tightened up the requirements to the level that they probably should have been years ago. The real estate “bubble� was the result, in part, of loans being made to people who were not really qualified. The basic question is; can you afford the payments? Many people couldn’t and that was a problem. There are currently FHA loans and some other products that allow for very low down payments if you are otherwise qualified, so that’s not a limitation. You would just have to pay mortgage insurance. Interest rates continue to be extremely low. That enables you to qualify for more money and gives you more flexibility in choosing a home. You should interview several lenders, in my opinion. Interest rates are one of the things you want to compare, but closing costs are another. Do the math. Sometimes a lower interest rate with higher closing costs ends up costing more in the long run. You also want a loan that can be paid off at anytime without a penalty. Look for hidden costs when you get a good faith estimate. All lenders will have some of the same costs, but others have odd little administrative fees and processing fees that can add up. Read all of the fine print and don’t be afraid to ask questions. This is a good time to buy, before prices start to climb too much, and getting preapproved for a loan is an important first step.

Flying gadgets and exotic melodies Latest Lelavision act showcases duo’s favorite contraptions By ELIZABETH SHEPHERD Arts Editor

For more than 20 years, Ela Lamblin has been making metal devices that honk, squeak, spin, rock and fly through the air in magical and unexpected ways. Lamblin, who with choreographer Leah Mann makes up the acclaimed local performance duo Lelavision, has gathered all his creations together for a special retrospective show — “Lelavision’s Heavy Metal DĂŤVices,â€? to be performed twice this weekend at Open Space for Arts & Community. The show will star not only Lambin and Mann but also feature a group of their local friends — Steffon Moody, dancers Abby Enson and Lynelle Sjoberg, and musicians Jason Staczek, Eric Chappelle, Arlette Moody and Christopher Overstreet — in a freewheeling and sometimes high-wire act atop Lamblin’s interactive, kinetic contraptions. For Lambin and Mann, a married couple, the show is a dream come true. “We’ve always wanted to set up all our toys at once,â€? said Mann. “Now we can dust off some of the ones that have been shouting at us from the corners of the studio for so long.â€? What can audiences expect to see? One creation, which Lamblin calls “The Pandemonium,â€? is a 12-foot long rocking boat with a balloon organ motor.

Another device, “The Orbacles,â€? consists of two steel balls that Lamblin and Mann climb into and play from the inside out. Another instrument, the “Volcano,â€? is a five-foot diameter, volcano-shaped cello-like instrument that spins. The oldest device in the show is Lamblin’s “Stamephoneâ€? — a six-foot stringed harmonic instrument that he made while still in college. Lamblin and Mann founded Lelavision in 1996. The couple has lived on the island for nine years — drawn here by their work with UMO Ensemble. They’ve garnered international attention for their work, touring their instruments and dances to festivals, theaters, universities and conferences. Along the way, they have schlepped Lamblin’s creations to such far-flung places as Italy, Scotland, Germany and Singapore. In Canada, they have appeared in Cirque du Soleil events in Montreal and Toronto. The performances and music created by Lelavision, said Lamblin, is “meant to produce exotic melodies (to) sooth the wildest child or the staunchest art critic.â€? “Heavy Metal DĂŤVicesâ€? will be presented at 7 p.m. Saturday and 4 p.m. Sunday at the Open Space for Arts & Community. Tickets, $12 for adults, $7 for kids/seniors, are on sale at www.brownpaper tickets.com and the Vashon Bookshop. Day-ofshow tickets are $15 and $10, cash or check only, at the door. At 6 p.m. after Sunday’s show, there will be a special organic, “greenâ€? St. Patrick’s day meal with the cast and crew. Donations of $30 will support Lelavision. To RSVP for the meal, email lela@ lelavision.com by Friday.

A talented cast delivers a winner with ‘In the Heights’ Review By ELIZABETH SHEPHERD Staff Writer

W

hatever you do, don’t miss Vashon High School’s musical “In the Heights,� which continues its run this weekend and next. It’s the best musical I’ve ever seen at the high school: There’s great acting and singing, a beautiful set and lighting, lively choreography and a tight orchestra playing a pulsing score inspired by hip hop, salsa and other urban music. The show itself is a gem — a splendid choice made by VHS principal Susan Hanson and drama teacher Stephen Floyd. This 2008 Tony Award winner for best musical is a true ensemble show, filled with juicy roles that let the cast of more than 20 teens shine. The show takes place in Washington Heights, a ragtag and yet rapidly gentrifying barrio of Manhattan. Most of the characters who live there dream of something better. But their lives in their community are already full and rich, and they don’t even realize it. There’s Usnavi (played with percussive conviction by Tanner Montague), a rapping grocery story owner who dreams of returning to his homeland, the Dominican Republic. He’s in love with Vanessa (exceptionally played and sung by Maya McTighe), a hairdresser who just wants to move to the hip West Village. Nina, an endearingly vulnerable character played beautifully by Emma Hennessey, is also the most ambitious girl on the block. She

Tanner Montague, Maya McTighe and Devan Barnes in a scene from “In the Heights.� returns to the ’hood with a secret: She’s dropped out of college. Her parents (played in a solid performance by Alec Spencer and a showstopping one by Hailey Quakenbush) are aghast, but luckily, Nina too finds love and encouragement waiting in the wings, in the person of Benny, a cab dispatcher who seems out of place in the neighborhood because he doesn’t speak Spanish. Benny is played by senior Luke Webster in my single favorite performance of the night. He lights up the stage, delivering

a marvelously nuanced, sensitive and completely compelling portrayal of his character. Directors Hanson and Floyd have done so much right with this production and at every turn emphasized honesty over artifice. For instance, only one of the performers (Mara Burns, playing a sassy hairdresser) speaks with a Latino accent, and hers is good enough to stand in for everyone else in the show, reminding the audience in a subtly perfect way that this is a show about Latino characters.

But in a broader sense, it’s about everyone who has ever lived in a special place and time. It’s about the comfort of being home and the thrill of living in the moment. And this moment, in the history of Vashon High School, is something extra special. “In the Heights� is the last show that Hanson will direct at VHS. She’s retiring next spring. It’s the last show her husband, architect Craig Hanson, will design in tandem with his principal wife. And talk about going out in style: Neither of them has ever made the old Vashon High School theater look better, or filled it with so much magic. That’s appropriate too, because next year, the high school will boast a new theater. The old one, much maligned by many in our drama and music community, is coming down. But I for one will miss some of its ragtag, homespun charms. So many beautiful stories have played out on its stage. “In the Heights� — a musical about how communities can thrive even in the most humble surroundings — is a perfect coda to this rich and colorful history. “In the Heights� will be performed this Friday through Sunday, and March 22, 23 and 24. Friday and Saturday shows are at 7:30 p.m., and Sunday matinees are at 2 p.m. Saturday is Rotary Night; all tickets are $20. Regular performances are $15 for adults and $12 for students; matinees are $12 general. Tickets can be purchased in advance at the high school office or at the Vashon Bookshop.

The Vashon Island Rowing Club kicked off its 2013 racing season with a spirited masters versus juniors regatta this month at Jensen Point. In the club’s annual scrimmage on March 3, young rowers went up against the VIRC’s seasoned master rowers, giving the older athletes a head start in the races. According to tradition, the day ended with a final race for the One Guinea Pig Cup. Finding a three-hour window of good weather in an otherwise stormy week, the rowers participated in seven exciting races on a 1,000-meter course in Quartermaster

The finale for the day was for all of the marbles, or at least the coveted One Guinea Pig Cup. The competition: mixed (men and women) eights hand-picked by the respective captains. Bruce Morser summed up the event well at the end of the day. “I finally have figured this out. Every four years the masters are four years older and the juniors are all fresh and new,� he said. So once again the trophy went to the juniors — you can’t beat that power to weight ratio.

Real estate analysis suggests park district rentals are under-occupied By LESLIE BROWN Staff Writer

The Vashon Park Districtâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s historic Belle Baldwin House at Fern Cove was occupied only 35 percent of the time in 2012, according to an analysis undertaken by a real estate agent. The Point Robinson Keepersâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; Quarters, meanwhile, saw somewhat more activity, with Quarters A rented 61 percent of the year and Quarters B rented 45 percent of the time. Susan Lofland, an agent with John L. Scott on Vashon, conducted the analysis pro bono for the park district, which is looking for ways to bring in more revenue and shore up its financial situation. At the park districtâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s request, Lofland also analyzed how much the Belle Baldwin House would fetch if the park district were to sell the 1912 structure, a threebedroom house perched above an expansive sand flat on the north end of the island. Lofland, who called the prop-

erty â&#x20AC;&#x153;stunning,â&#x20AC;? said she believed it could sell for between $750,000 and $850,000, depending on how much property went with the house. It currently sits on a 13-acre parcel. Lofland also tried to determine how much money the houses would bring in if they were rented as yearround residences rather than vacation properties. Each of the three houses, she estimated, could rent for as much as $2,000 a month. The park district is currently losing money on the Belle Baldwin house because of a $300,000 loan it took out in 2008 to refurbish the home and undertake other capital projects at the time. All told, the agency spent $179,000 to restore the house and fully furnish it, $40,000 more than it budgeted, according to an article that ran in The Beachcomber in August 2008. The park district expects to lose $21,000 on its vacation rentals this year, according to its 2013 budget. Elaine Ott, the park districtâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s new general manager, said sheâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s taking a close look at all three properties in the wake of Loflandâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s analysis. She

planned to present her findings to the park districtâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s board Tuesday night, after the newspaperâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s deadline. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m taking a little deeper look at the financial implications of the various options,â&#x20AC;? she said. Asked if selling the Belle Baldwin House were a possibility, Ott said, â&#x20AC;&#x153;It does loom large as a potential.â&#x20AC;? But some islanders who played a role in the protection of Fern Cove said they believed there would be an outcry if the park district were to try to sell the historic house. â&#x20AC;&#x153;That idea was floated a while ago. â&#x20AC;Ś A lot of people involved with it have already told the park district, over my dead body,â&#x20AC;? said Emma Amiad, a real estate agent and a former park district commissioner. Tom Dean, who heads the Vashon-Maury Island Land Trust, said he believes the park district might have to repay a state grant, were it to try to sell the Belle Baldwin House. The park district used public funds from a variety of sources to purchase the property in 1994.

â&#x20AC;&#x153;It likely wouldnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t help the park districtâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s bottom line,â&#x20AC;? he said. Dean also expressed concern over the prospect of renting the Belle Baldwin House as a yearround residence. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Even though itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s way more lucrative, a full-time rental doesnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t really honor the spirit of what that project was supposed to do,â&#x20AC;? Dean said. Capt. Joe Wubbold, who heads the Keepers of Point Robinson, said he would object as well to the two houses at Point Robinson becoming anything other than vacation rentals. â&#x20AC;&#x153;The contract that we have with the island, unwritten as it may be, is that those houses will be maintained and made ready so island people can enjoy them,â&#x20AC;? he said. But Ott stressed there are other options. The park district, for instance, might decide to contract with a rental agency in an effort to make the properties profitable, she said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;With any one of those options, the hope is that they would be a potential cash positive,â&#x20AC;? she said.

*("CFDPNFTGJSTU 7BTIPOHSPDFSZUP TFMMIBSEMJRVPS Vashon Market Fresh IGA began selling liquor at its store at Vashon Plaza last Friday, making it the first grocery store on the island to do so, said owner Shawn Hoffman Monday. The store, which he purchased from an off-island owner last October, already had a liquor license in hand, Hoffman said. He decided to begin offering spirits after he learned that Island Home Center & Lumber is also applying for a liquor license. But Hoffman said he intends to sell â&#x20AC;&#x153;just the basics,â&#x20AC;? hoping that will leave room for the Vashon Liquor Store to ply its trade. He also called the liquor storeâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s owners to let them know of his intentions, he said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Hopefully, it will all work out,â&#x20AC;? he said.

take comments at the next meeting of the VashonMaury Island Community Council, scheduled for 7 p.m. Monday at McMurray Middle School. Water taxi riders can also give input through an online survey that will be open through April 1. Results will be shared at the May VMICC meeting. Of the three terminals served by the King County Water Taxi â&#x20AC;&#x201D; Vashon, West Seattle and downtown Seattle â&#x20AC;&#x201D; Vashon was the best place to put the federal grant to use, Allison said. The downtown dock is about to undergo renovations, and the West Seattle dock is leased by the county. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Vashon riders wait in the rain and ride their bikes. They are exposed to the elements quite often,â&#x20AC;? she said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Because you depend on ferry service, it would be a good way to use the grant.â&#x20AC;?

.BOBSSFTUFEGPSNFUIQPTTFTTJPO PO(PSTVDI3PBEBTTBVMUTNFEJD A 51-year-old man was arrested on the 9500 block of S.W. Gorsuch Road late Sunday afternoon for possession of methamphetamine and other alleged violations, King County sheriffâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s deputies report. Deputies went to the manâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s house to arrest him on outstanding misdemeanor warrants, said Dep. Joel Anderson. During a search â&#x20AC;&#x153;incident to the arrest,â&#x20AC;? officers found methamphetamine on the man. Later, when a medic tried to examine his back, the man attempted to assault the medic, leading to a felony assault charge as well, Anderson said. The man is now in jail

awaiting a hearing; bail has been set at $10,000, Anderson said. Around 8 p.m., also on Sunday, gun shots were heard by several neighbors not far from the Gorsuch home where the arrest took place. Anderson, however, said the two incidents donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t appear to be linked. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We have nothing to tie the shots to that house,â&#x20AC;? Anderson said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;By the time we got to the area, we could not locate or see anythingâ&#x20AC;? having to do with the incident. The Beachcomber does not release the names of people who have been arrested. Names are released only when charges are made.

The King County Ferry District is soliciting input from water taxi riders on how to best use funds for improvements at Vashonâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s water taxi terminal. The ferry district recently obtained a small federal grant that will cover design and construction of a capital improvement at the Vashon terminal, said Michelle Allison, legislative aide to King County Councilmember Joe McDermott, chairman of the ferry district. The district is considering installing either a covered walkway and wind screen where passengers line up or covered bike storage at the terminal. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Those are two suggestions we often hear from riders,â&#x20AC;? Allison said, adding that the district is open to other rider suggestions as well. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re exploring how far we can use these dollars and what the public would like best,â&#x20AC;? she said. Ferry district officials will discuss the project and

Garciaâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s charging papers stipulate that he can be at the library, but Garcia is currently banned from the Vashon Library by the King County Sheriffâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Office due to an unrelated incident there.

Wheaton has been in business since 1970 and has experienced a lot of burglaries over the years. This one, she said, was the worst. â&#x20AC;&#x153;This whole block was full of five-gallon hydrangeas,â&#x20AC;? she said Monday as she stood in front of an empty swath of landscape cloth. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Someone essentially came in after hours and went shopping,â&#x20AC;? she added. â&#x20AC;&#x153;They knew what they wanted, got it and disappeared.â&#x20AC;? The burglary took place toward the back of her property, where an old wooden fence separates her nursery from the parking lot at Island Funeral Service, her neighbor to the north. Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s easy to see how it happened, Wheaton said. Someone likely pulled a truck into the funeral homeâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s L-shaped parking lot, where it was obscured from the street by another building, and gained access by removing a few boards off the aging fence and cutting the wire fencing she recently installed to better secure her site. She said she knows she has to rebuild her fence, but itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a costly proposition. On Monday, a customer gave her $50 â&#x20AC;&#x201D; the first contribution to what could prove to be a community-supported effort to get a new fence erected. â&#x20AC;&#x153;For a moment on Saturday, I was going to quit. But within an hour of somebody posting this on their Facebook, people

Kathy Wheaton helps Harriet Van Buren identify a camelia Monday afternoon. started coming in and saying how sorry they were and was there anything they could do,â&#x20AC;? she said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;People just carried me emotionally for hours, and thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s what I needed to be OK.â&#x20AC;? â&#x20AC;&#x153;People are amazing,â&#x20AC;? she added. â&#x20AC;&#x153;People are so cool.â&#x20AC;? Last May, Kathyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Corner experienced two break-ins in one week, losing approximately $2,500 in items and experiencing $1,000 in property damage; the perpetrators broke into the greenhouse that serves as her office, badly damaging the structure in the process.

That was followed by other break-ins, where she lost ceramic pots and other plants, she said. But this latest incident was by far the worst, she said. She believes the burglars are in the landscaping business, took an order for an installation and filled that order by breaking into her place late Friday night or early Saturday morning. The burglars were selective, she said. They didnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t just grab the first trees in the row; rather, she said, they took a couple trees, passed over some and took a few more. A few of the trees were 10 to 12 feet tall.

â&#x20AC;&#x153;I donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t think it went to this personâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s house. I think it went to a customerâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s house or multiple customersâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; houses,â&#x20AC;? she said. Ironically, Lisa Devereau, who manages Island Funeral Service, said someone broke into the funeral home Saturday night or Sunday morning but took very little. She doesnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t think the two incidents are related. â&#x20AC;&#x153;My guess is that it was a homeless person looking for a place to sleep,â&#x20AC;? she said. Devereau said she hopes to help Kathyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Corner by installing motion-sensitive lighting around the funeral home, though she knows skilled criminals know how to take such lighting out. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m not sure weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re going to help any, but thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s definitely my goal,â&#x20AC;? she said. Wheaton said she plans to file an insurance claim and urge police officers to work the case hard. She also hopes for leads from islanders who know about major garden installations that involve some of the shrubs and trees she lost. At the same time, she added, sheâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s not going to let the incident get her down. Wheaton gained some fame in the nursery industry last year when a heartfelt letter she wrote about her determination to remain optimistic in the face of financial struggles as a nurserywoman appeared on the front page of a national industry magazine. Now, with colorful primroses covering her tables, vegetable starts on hand and pots of budding shrubs lining the paths that wend through her nursery, she said her resolve to stay positive remains strong. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Business is improving,â&#x20AC;? she said, smiling. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m excited about the upcoming year.â&#x20AC;?

Betty June Gleason A vibrant longtime member of the Vashon community and spark plug of many local organizations died March 9th, 2013. Betty June Gleason was born June 1st 1920 in Angels Camp, California home of the Calaveras County Jumping Frog Jubilee. Much of her time in California was spent as a founding member of the Tuolumne County Historical Society, Girl Scout leader, and working for the local paper The Union Democrat. The growth of the telephone company on Vashon brought Betty and her husband Keith Hubble Gleason and their two daughters Linda and Gayle to Vashon Island in 1960. Betty quickly became deeply involved in life on Vashon. This included membership in the Womenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Club, Cancer Society as a survivor, the Garden Club, and one of the first employees of K2. In her 50â&#x20AC;&#x2122;s she obtained her pilots license and joined the all female pilots organization called the 99s. She loved flying with her children and her grandchildren. A favorite family destination was Little Cactus Island in the the San Juan Islands where the family would camp, explore the beach, fish, and she could pass on her appreciation of nature. Her grandchildren remember her hosting many family holiday celebrations including Easter egg hunts where she had the local bakery write each childâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s name on their individual chocolate egg. Her creativity and love of crafts showed in her cards, flower arrangements, garden, cooking, sewing and knitting projects. Three years after the death of Keith, Betty married Pete Blair of Clinton, Washington. Still active and energetic Pete and Betty enjoyed traveling internationally. They were supporters of Port Townsend Areo Museum. Their appreciation for the arts took them to the theater, symphonies, and museums. Betty was a supporter and fan of Cougar football, the Seahawks, the Mariners and loved to play and watch golf. Pete and Betty split their time between their homes on Vashon and Whidbey Island where they were shining stars of the Brighton Beach boardwalk. Her memory was phenomenal and her ability to tell stories was amazing. Each item in her house has a story. Each has had their own adventure. From the girl who jumped off the dock in her underwear to the matriarch of a large family, Betty lived a life filled with adventure, friends, family and joy. She will be missed. A Memorial service will be held at 3pm, Friday March 15, 2013, at the Vashon Methodist Church. Please visit our online guest book at www.islandfuneral.com.

Alvin is a super sweet 12 year old Russian Blue. He is very smart and loving. He just wants to be a solid companion. He’s happy sleeping in your lap or following you around the house. He has always been an indoor cat and is friends with his buddy “Skates.”

Oreo is a darling four year-old miniature poodle. Sadly, his owner died and he needs a new home. Oreo often sat on his owners lap, or was held, so that is a requirement for this sweet little guy. He also loves his treats. He has settled quickly into foster care with other small dogs and cats and undoubtedly will adjust well to his permanent home. Not recommended for households with young children. VIPP requires a $125.00 adoption fee - Oreo came to VIPP with his friend Buddy.
