Islanders question health center merger Clinic officials say care will remain the same By SUSAN RIEMER Staff Writer

For more than a decade, the Vashon Health Center has been managed by Highline Medical Center, a nonprofit health organization based in Burien. Now, however, Highline — and with it, Vashon’s largest health clinic — are part of the Catholic-owned Franciscan Health System, and some islanders are voicing concerns. Those involved with the change say it is

a welcome turn of events, a chance to bring greater financial stability to the clinic at a time when Highline was facing a difficult financial picture. But others fear this new partnership could limit medical choices in significant ways. The merger comes at a time of increasing attention to the growth of Catholic health systems throughout the country and in Washington in particular. The American Civil Liberties Union estimates that by the end of this year, 47 percent of hospital beds in the state will be in Catholic-operated facilities. Now, health care activists and others are taking note and raising ques-

tions, particularly those concerned about reproductive health, end-of-life issues and the influence of the Catholic church over health care practices. A community meeting, spearheaded by islanders with questions about the recent transaction, will take place on Thursday, April 25. Mark Benedum, the CEO of Highline, and Dianna Kielian, the senior vice president of mission for the Franciscan Health System, will speak and answer questions. Those involved with the new affiliation, SEE HEALTH, PAGE 23

Potential cuts to ferry service stir concern Tahlequah route would see a reduction under a legislative plan By NATALIE JOHNSON B Staff Writer St

The remaking of an organization

An island nonprofit that made headlines during the battle against Glacier has reinvented itself, and with a new name and a renewed vision, it’s once again making waves in the shoreline development world. Amy Carey, director of the organization, announced last week that Preserve Our Islands has become Sound Action, a regional watchdog group that will seek to hold construction permitting agencies accountable for protecting aquatic habitat in Puget Sound. And in its first watchdogging effort, Sound Action has released an audit that the group believes shows the state Department of Fish & Wildlife (WDFW) isn’t following specific permitting laws meant to protect forage fish, a backbone of Puget Sound health. “We have run Puget Sound to the brink,” Carey said after the announcement last week. “It really is past the time for agencies to be doing their jobs — not creating new laws, but paying attention to the laws that are on the books.” However, the state, so far, doesn’t seem receptive to Sound Action’s message. Randi Thurston, WDFW’s protection division manager, said she believes the agency does follow the laws in question and does all it can to protect aquatic habitat. “The biologists here are really passionate about what they do, and they care about the fish,” Thurston said. “They take their jobs pretty seriously. One of them said, ‘It feels like I got punched in the gut.’” Carey, however, said there’s a dire need for oversight of regulatory agencies such as WDFW, agencies that issue permits

Amy Carey and Susie Kalhorn hope the new organization will work with regulatory agencies to improve their permitting processes and better protect habitat.

Islanders are urging state lawmakers to avoid what they call significant cuts to fe ferry service proposed for the south end of o Vashon. The House transportation budget released earlier this month proposes cutre ti the last trip of the evening on the ting Point Defiance-Tahlequah route as well as P o mid-day run, extending the mid-day one service gap on the route from two hours s to three hours and saving the state an estimated $780,000 a year. The Senate plan m retained current ferry service. re Vashon’s ferry advocates, however, say they th worry the service reductions suggested by the House would make it tough g for fo drivers to get on and off the south end during the day, prevent islanders from d going to Tacoma in the evening and send g more cars to the north-end ferry. m “The effect would not be catastrophic, but b very noticeable and would really affect people who regularly travel to Tacoma,” p said Todd Pearson, an islander paying s close attention to the situation. “And to c some degree, it could affect the triangle s route. Any additional pressure is a bad r thing.” th The House transportation plan also includes cuts to the Port Townsendin Coupeville and Clinton-Mukilteo routes C for fo an estimated $2.2 million in total savings. s Pearson said he has written to lawmakers e about the impact that cuts would have on o Vashon, and some others he knows have done the same. h “They’re aware we have our pitchforks in hand, and the torches are burning,” he h said. The state ferry system has been in the red re since the motor vehicle excise tax expired in 2000. Since then, the state has e transferred about $30 million a year from tr other parts of the transportation budget to o maintain service. However, those accounts m SEE FERRIES, 12

The Maury Island open space formerly owned by Glacier Northwest will likely see funds for restoration and improvement from a new county parks foundation, King County announced last week. On April 9, King County Parks announced it has established a new foundation with a $75,000 initial gift from a Seattle wealth management firm. The parks agency, which is celebrating its 75th anniversary this year, hopes to grow the foundation to $7.5 million over the next decade, largely with gifts from the private sector. The county has already identified the 250-acre Maury Island site it purchased from Glacier Northwest in 2010 as one of seven priority projects it hopes to funnel foundation money into in the coming years. The property, which the county has designated as a natural area, contains large madrone stands, sweeping views of the water and one of the largest undeveloped shorelines in all of Puget Sound. King County Parks spokesman Doug Williams said it was too soon to tell when the site would see foundation funding — or even if it definitely will — as officials are just in the beginning stages of fundraising. Other priority projects identified by teh agency include enhancing Tanner Landing Park near Mount Si in North Bend, investing in and preserving new open space and creating a 16-mile bike and pedestrian trail connect-

ing Lake Washington and Puget Sound. “There isn’t a large pot of money yet, and there certainly is no plan in place yet for how to expend the funds,� Williams said. A committee tasked with looking at King County Parks’ future in 2002 recommended that the agency establish a foundation to ensure long-term financial stability and to invest in large-scale projects as the region continues to grow. The foundation came to fruition this year with a $75,000 seed donation from Laird Norton Wealth Management, a business founded in 1967 by descendants of early Seattle business partners William Harris Laird and his cousins, Matthew G. Norton and James Laird Norton. The county’s Department of Natural Resources and Parks is currently working with the state Department of Ecology to develop a cleanup plan for the Maury Island site, which is tainted with arsenic and lead from the historic Tacoma Smelter Plume. The county is also finalizing plans to eventually install some limited amenities, such as picnic tables and a parking lot, at the site. Officials have also suggested the former mining site, which is full of Scotch broom and blackberry, would benefit from environmental restoration similar to work currently taking place at the nearby Maury Island Aquatic Park. “There’s so much work to be done at the Maury Island site and on so many different levels,� Williams said.

Real Estate Quarterly

by Sophia Stendahl

Spring is here, and our real estate market is coming alive. Compared to last year, we have 13% more listings, which would ease the pressure of our listing shortage, but there are 71% more homes under contract to sell. In a snapshot, many homes are getting offers their first day on the market. In fact, some homes are getting multiple offers. If you are buying or selling, talk to your real estate advisor about how to approach this fast paced market smartly and successfully. Across the water, Seattle is experiencing a surge in home prices amidst a buying frenzy. Between different neighborhoods, analysts see home values up between 4% & 17%. Seattle is often a few steps ahead of us—stay tuned to their market for a suggestion of what our market could look like in the future. In the first quarter, 11 homes sold under $400,000. The middle market is showing signs of life with 9 closed sales between $400,000 & $700,000. At $700,000 and above, we’ve had one closed sale. However, our high-end market has recently turned a corner with two sales over $1,000,000 currently pending inspection. Last year we had one million dollar sale, so this is a welcomed change for high-end sellers. For a complete quarterly visit www.sophiastendahl.com

Homeowners in MRAs to have access to septic loans By NATALIE JOHNSON Staff Writer

Low-interest loans will be available as soon as next month for homeowners in Vashon’s marine recovery areas (MRAs) to repair or replace their failing septic systems. King County, which received funds for the septic loan program last summer, announced last week that it has chosen a lender to administer a $350,000 revolving loan program for islanders in MRAs who have been told to update their systems. It selected Craft3, a nonprofit lending organization that has offices in western Washington and Oregon, to administer the loans. “We’re very excited about this, and I know the community is excited about it,� said Stella Chao, deputy director for environmental health at Public Health – Seattle & King County. “We want to get it up and running soon.� Chao said the agency chose Craft3 from several organizations that applied to administer the program because it has experience with lending for septic work and would take a broad approach when considering loan applicants and their needs. “They take into consideration a lot of different things that aren’t what your standard financial institutions consider when you apply for a loan and get a certain interest rate. Craft3 will look at other issues specific to Vashon Island property owners,� Chao said. Several islanders, including Carl Sells and Tim Johnson with the Vashon-Maury Island Community Council, have long advocated for King County to provide financial assistance to those who couldn’t afford the septic work required by the state. A new septic system can cost between $15,000

and $40,000, and some who own property within an MRA, Chao said, have low incomes, are elderly or inherited their homes. “Property owners that we know are going to have financial hardship,� she said. “They are not necessary people that have a lot of money.� The county tried twice before to secure funding for a loan program, but was unsuccessful, in part, Chao said, because many homeowners had yet to return the proper paperwork on their existing septic systems. Now, fewer than 10 homeowners have yet to respond to the county with information on their septic systems. They are accruing fines of $25 a day. “All of the folks that turned in operation and maintenance reports and contacted us so we could we could have an assessment of the situation were part of our success in getting these funds,� Chao said. The county eventually secured $350,000 from the Environmental Protection Agency’s Nation Estuary Program. Chao said that thanks to efforts by former Gov. Chris Gregoire and former Rep. Norm Dicks, almost all of the funds from the federal program that were designated for Puget Sound went to the new septic loan program. “This money is meant for restoring Puget Sound, and King County got the bulk of the money,� she said. “We do have a lot of population here, but it was a recognition by the state that this was an important place to invest in.� The county plans for Craft3 to open applications for loans by May 10. Those who live on Quartermaster Harbor will have priority in the loan disbursement process.

Church dinner will raise funds for new commercial kitchen

Bates is at Jannetty’s!

Vashon Lutheran Church will host a dinner this Friday to raise funds to create a commercial kitchen that will serve the church, the island’s free dinner program and the wider community. Earlier this year, the church received a $5,000 grant from Thrivent Financial for Lutherans for this project. The grant came with an offer of a matching community donation of 50 cents on the dollar, for a potential gift of $7,500. To help it bring in all the money possible, the church is inviting islanders to come by for a homecooked lasagna dinner with all the fixings on Friday — and give generously to the cause. As part of the meals program, a hot meal is served every day on

Vashon, with a cadre of volunteers purchasing, preparing and serving the meals. Each Friday the Lutheran Church hosts the dinner. But the program is limited by a lack of storage and preparation space, according to Lynn Meindhardt, the secretary of the church. A new kitchen will allow volunteers to cook in the kitchen instead of transporting food from elsewhere and will also allow them to make and store what is leftover to send home with individuals and families in need. Harmon Arroyo, the coordinator of the meals program noted the church’s participation in the meals program has blossomed under the direction of Rev. Bjoern Meinhardt. “They’re just champions of the meals program right now,� he said.

VASHON E AGLES

The church has already received a donated freezer for the project and is hoping for a commercial dishwasher and a refrigerator as well, he said. Beyond the meals program, the kitchen could also be used for additional community events, Lynn Meinhardt said, including classes that Yvonne Pitrof of the Vashon Community Food Bank has long wanted to hold, such as canning and cooking with food bank offerings — including fresh produce from island gardens and the food bank farm. The dinner will meet from 5:30 to 7:30 p.m. Friday at the Vashon Lutheran Church, 18623 Vashon Hwy. S.W. Everyone is welcome. — Susan Riemer

Popular musician reflects on world travels | Welcome Vashon interview Welcome Vashon, the nonprofit that aims to welcome and connect islanders, recently interviewed several highprofile Vashon residents on the idea of welcoming. Jenn Reidel, a member of Welcome Vashon, conducted the interviews and wrote articles about what welcoming means to various islanders. Her interview with musician Paul Colwell is the first in her series of articles to run in The Beachcomber. By JENN REIDEL For The Beachcomber

Musician and songwriter Paul Colwell has been welcomed all over the world. He is a member of the country/ bluegrass/world music band the Colwell Brothers, which his brother Steve started 65 years ago in California. As teenagers, Steve (guitar), Paul (mandolin, banjo and guitar) and Ralph (bass) signed with Columbia Records and were regulars on many radio and TV shows, performing with such country stars as Tex Williams, Tennessee Ernie Ford and Little Jimmy Dickens. Just as their careers began to take off in the early 1950s, the Colwell Brothers were invited by the MRA (Moral Re-Armament) to travel for a year and use their music as part of the organization’s conciliation work in postwar Europe and other parts of the globe. It was then that Colwell saw how music could be used to bring people together and to inspire change in the world. That first year turned into 12 years of traveling, which took the brothers to more than 50 countries on six continents, where they sang in 42 languages. Upon his return to the United States. in the 1960s, times were changing. “There was much that needed to be taken down as well as lifted up, such as civil rights,� Colwell said. In an effort to express a common humanity, he and his brother Ralph wrote the popular hit “Up With People,� and shortly thereafter the Colwells and their longtime colleague Herb Allen founded the international educational youth program of the same name. Paul coordinated the creation of the musical productions with as many as five casts of up to 700 young people traveling each year. This included several Super Bowl halftime shows. He still serves in an advisory capacity for the organization today. Now in his 70s, Colwell continues to work with young

He and his wife, artist Catalina Quinn Colwell, have brought students from all over the world to Vashon, where they have served as community representatives for several student exchange programs. I recently sat down and talked with Colwell about his fascinating musical journey. Jenn Reidel: As a traveling musician, you have been welcomed all over the world. Can you give us some perspective on what that was like? Paul Colwell: We certainly were welcomed in country after country. In terms of someone going to another place,

whether someone else’s home or someone else’s country, you go on the basis of wanting to learn something. Do not go on the basis of comparison, but on the basis of appreciation. That is very important. We sang for the leaders of many countries. We felt that if we could influence the leaders, they could affect change in their countries where needed. And we sang in the remotest villages. We would write a song for each country we visited. Sometimes we had only two or three days to write the song and translate it into the language of the country we were going to. When you go to a foreign country, it is important to try to speak in their language if possible, or at least learn a few words in their dialects. It touches them when you show that kind of interest in their culture. Tell me about some of the songs you wrote for the countries you visited. The most profound experience for me was singing at the independence celebrations of the Congo in 1960. The song we wrote for the occasion, “Vive le Congo,� became the signature tune for the Congolese National Radio’s daily newscasts. We were in the Congo when things were in turmoil. The United Nations was trying to bring stability. Once we were pulled over by a village militia who thought we were spies. We told them we were the Colwell Brothers. We were very well known in the country, you see, for we were doing radio shows every day. They did not believe us. They took us to the village and demanded we sing our songs to prove we were the Colwell Brothers. Little kids packed around us so tight you could barely play your instrument. Luckily our singing convinced them, and then they welcomed us with wine and much celebration. The music was the magic. You said a lot of the songs you wrote during your travels were lost because you didn’t have any recording equipment. So, in a sense, your songs were gifts to the people. Yes, our songs were our thank you. Thanking them for their hospitality and friendship. We tried to get a feel for the spirit of the people and capture it in each song. We broke down barriers and built bridges of understanding. Music played a very powerful role in doing that. — Jenn Reidel is a freelance web designer, fine art photographer and writer who lives on Vashon.

A spring morning holds promise — and cake

Is health care choice at risk? Islanders want to know

It was a splendid Saturday morning in early spring, bursting with limitless optimism, perfect for learning a foreign language, training school-aged children to pick up after themselves or beginning large yard projects involving truckloads of poured concrete. Three of our four kids were methodically insulting each other in the backseat as I managed the wheel of our beat-up minivan in the brilliant-white early morning sunshine. We drove past our emergency backup grocery store, where we usually shop on Christmas Day or Thanksgiving because our regular grocery store has closed. Across the nearly empty parking lot, we saw large yellow and black banners draping the front of the store, advertising new and presumably more capable management and the day’s grand opening in huge black script, with door prizes, store coupons and a drawing to win a dazzling stainless steel propanefired barbeque grill that gleamed in the sun near the entrance. On this giddy morning full of extravagant promise, it seemed perfectly fitting that we might stop by our emergency backup grocery store, win a handsome stainlesssteel barbecue and grill thick steaks for friends that afternoon. We were greeted inside the glass doors by the new manager, a harried man in black glasses with a friendly smile and curly black hair, welcoming us to the grand opening and gesturing toward a stack of entry forms for the barbeque drawing to our left, mentioning that if we could wait, in minutes the store would be conducting a cakewalk. I was in a cakewalk once. Tex Ritter’s “Turkey in the Straw� blared on a tinny portable record player, and two dozen kids and I walked around a circle of numbers until the

Repeatedly, those involved with the Franciscan Health System and Highline Medical Center say nothing will change as a result of the merger between the two entities. We want to believe them. But even while they say it will be business as usual, some are sounding the alarm, in large part because of a 43-page set of “directives� issued by the U.S. Conference of Catholic Bishops — directives, the report notes, that Catholic-run health care systems and their employees are required to follow. The directives (Google “Catholic ethical and religious directives� and read them for yourself) are long and complex — a set of principles fully based in Catholic theology. Catholic health care systems, the directives note, are dedicated to serving the poor, uninsured and under-insured, to promoting social good, to helping those who are vulnerable and on the margins of society. But when it comes to a woman’s reproductive freedom, to a man’s ability to get a vasectomy, to birth control or to a person’s end-of-life decisions, choice is severely curtailed. And the directives don’t mince words. “Catholic health care organizations are not permitted to engage in immediate material cooperation in actions that are intrinsically immoral, such as abortion, euthanasia, assisted suicide, and direct sterilization,� the report says on page 37. Or consider this, from page 27: “Catholic health institutions may not promote or condone contraceptive practices but should provide, for married couples and the medical staff who counsel them, instruction both about the Church’s teaching on responsible parenthood and in methods of natural family planning.� Should a woman face an ectopic pregnancy, a complication that can cause a woman to hemorrhage and bleed to death, “no intervention is morally licit which constitutes a direct abortion.� And if a woman is raped, “It is not permissible ... to initiate ... treatments that have as their purpose or direct effect the removal, destruction or interference with the implantation of a fertilized ovum.� It’s hard to reconcile the promise of “business as usual� with the words in these 72 directives. What’s more, there’s ample evidence in other parts of the state and country that patients’ rights have been curtailed because theology trumped science. Why should we care on Vashon? If we’re not happy with the Vashon Health Center’s services, can’t we just take our business elsewhere? Yes, of course. But Catholic ownership of health care systems is on the rise; according to The New York Times, 20 mergers between Catholic and non-Catholic hospitals have been announced over the past three years and more are expected. Indeed, an organization called MergerWatch exists for the sole purpose of advocating for medical care free of religious doctrine. Next week, islanders will have a chance to ask questions about this merger, thanks to a meeting organized by a few civic-minded women on Vashon and willingness on the part of the Franciscans and Highline to accept their invitation. We hope many will come. While the merger’s already a done deal, it’s important that islanders put the Franciscans on notice that we want law and science — not theology — to guide our local clinic’s practices, now and in the future.

FAMILY LIFE By KEVIN POTTINGER music stopped, and I didn’t win a cake. I noticed that the store had been rearranged and freshly cleaned and painted, and it hummed with renewed purpose and energetic enthusiasm after decades of slow decline. I scribbled our name on an entry form and dropped it into a slot cut in the top of a cardboard box. It was still early, and the store was mostly empty; clerks were scurrying around with armloads of stuff, straightening and sweeping. There were numbered squares in bright green tape stuck to the scarred and yellowing linoleum floor. Our three kids stood inside the nearest square and waited, elbowing each other for advantage. I explained that their chances would likely improve if they each occupied their own squares, so they fought over one particular square near the cash registers, while I took a square over in produce, shushing them from afar. Presently the manager beckoned to a pleasant woman who disappeared into a backroom off the bakery and without preamble, switched on a microphone and called out a number on the overhead speakers. “Number 19.� The cakewalk had begun. There was a moment of confusion when no one knew exactly where number 19 was, or if anyone was standing on it. As it turned out 19 was back by the beer. It was still kind of early for beer. She called another. “Number 13.�

that or push it back into the harbor for someone else to deal with. It’s just too difficult to rake it all up and take it to the dump, which would take dump truck loads. Please be responsible and take care of your own yard waste. I’ll save another letter for the guests who stay overnight at Dockton on their boats, dumping cantaloupe rinds and other food wastes overboard. I’ve seen it done myself while walking on the dock, and I’ve dealt with it on our beach a million times. Thank you, and I apologize (sort of) for this frustrated plea of help.

STAFF PUBLISHER: ADMINISTRATIVE COORDINATOR: CIRCULATION:

I could see that square 13 was unoccupied from my spot near the tomatoes. Our youngest son patrolled the perimeter of his square near the cash registers, apparently prepared to defend it with force. The pleasant lady called another number, six, which sat empty a few squares distant from our oldest daughter, standing by the Cheetos. “Number eight.� Empty. Things were going awry with the cakewalk game. “Number four.� Empty. Our youngest girl investigated the racks of tempting candy bars. “Number 10.� A couple of disheveled guys buying malt liquor stood unsteadily on square 19, grinning. The lady calling the numbers reappeared from the back room looking exasperated. Surveying the checkout lanes, she found our youngest son vigilantly guarding his square. She returned to the room. “Number nine,� she declared flatly. The manager with curly black hair and friendly grin grabbed our youngest boy’s hand and held it up like a champion prize fighter. I snapped a picture with my cellphone. One of the clerks clapped and whistled. Someone wooted. We were all just making it up as we went along. The pleasant bakery lady presented our son his cake, chocolate with chocolate frosting in a snap-together clear-plastic package. Before we left we bought groceries and a double-tall mocha to take home to my wife Maria. On the way home, I exclaimed, “We won a cake! Wait ’til we tell Mom!� Our youngest boy was silent for a moment. He said the cake was OK, but it wasn’t as good as the one he won last year. It didn’t matter. The morning was still young.

Tax time: ’Tis the season to spread new-found wealth around Vashon GIVING By ELIZABETH SHEPHERD

Spending money where you live is a good investment It’s that easy-come, easy-go time of year. Have you decided how to spend your tax refund? OK, it wasn’t easy come, not at all. Most of us work hard for our money, and the hangover of the Great Recession is still throbbing for many on Vashon. But still, right after April 15 is a time when some of us have a few extra bills in our wallets. Your tax refund is technically the repayment of money you have loaned the government. But still, it can feel like a gift when you pull the check out of the mailbox. So why not pay a percentage of it forward by spending it on Vashon? Here are a few ideas:

Give it to the kids. The Vashon Schools Foundation is in the midst of its third annual campaign to raise $500,000 to support Vashon Island School District programs. The Foundation, created in response to a woefully underfunded state education budget, makes it possible for our school district to continue to thrive when many others have faltered. Our schools still have low student-teacher ratios, athletics, arts and music programs, high test scores, a high college acceptance rate and targeted

t

support for those seeking alternative education. Our district is, in fact, so excellent that more than 100 off-island parents put their children on boats to attend Chautauqua, McMurray and Vashon High School. Wouldn’t it be wonderful if this year, a record number of island families gave a “thumbs-up� to the schools in the form of generous pledges to the foundation? Follow your passion. Our little town is a mecca for the arts. Think about it: We have drama companies, an opera and chorale, dance studios, music galore, galleries, studio tours and even our very own beloved downtown movie theater. Why not tithe a portion of your tax return to the arts? Make a donation to your favorite presenter, or just buy a dozen movie passes to pass out to your friends like May Day bouquets.

Help weave the social safety net. Give big to Vashon organizations that feed hungry islanders, give comfort to the sick and elderly, assist at-risk children and families and rescue helpless animals. Every dollar donated to these organizations comes back tenfold in terms of improving the lives of those on the island who need our help the most. And remember, those same organizations are there for you too, should you ever need help. Save the Earth. It’s finally springtime, for heaven’s sake. Get out in your yard and clean up the detritus of a Pacific Northwest winter’s worth of rain, wind and more rain, and then go buy some plants at one of our excellent local nurseries. Or, you could replace some of your old light bulbs with energy-efficient LED ones. Or, you could give money

to an island organization devoted to safeguarding our fragile, changing Puget Sound environment. For the beauty of the earth, we all need to give green. Blow it all at the Farmer’s Market and other island businesses. What if we all vowed to shop exclusively fresh and local for one week in May? Think of the marvelous things we could buy: radishes, kale and rhubarb, caramels and chocolates, wine and beer, aromatic coffee, fresh egg, and, of course, brightly colored spring flowers. No buyer’s remorse there, ever. So no, your tax return was not easy come, easy go. A better maxim in times like these? How about, “what goes around, comes around?� — Elizabeth Shepherd is The Beachcomber’s arts editor.

That question is at the heart of Drama Dock’s spring offering, “Black Comedy,� set for a run at Vashon High School this weekend. The wild British farce, written in 1965 by Peter Shaffer — who went on to write the blockbuster Broadway and West End hits “Equus� and “Amadeus� — is built on a simple conceit: When the stage lights are up, the characters in the play are in the dark, and when the lights go out, they can suddenly see. “It’s the perfect situation for physical comedy,� said island theater artist Steffon Moody, who is making his Drama Dock directorial debut with the show. “The premise is very unique, and that’s what interested me in the play in the first place. I thought it was a great theatrical problem to work with.� Moody has cast a constellation of some of Vashon’s funniest thespians to tackle the slapstick and pratfalls required by the show. Marshall Murray, a rubberfaced actor who has starred in several Drama Dock shows and musicals, will tackle the role of “Black Comedy� plays at 7:30 p.m. Friday and Saturday, and 2 p.m. Sunday at Vashon High School. Tickets, $15 and $10, are on sale at Vashon Bookshop and at the door.

Brindsley Miller, a hapless young sculptor. The play is set in motion when Miller borrows some expensive furniture from a neighbor’s flat without permission, in a desperate attempt to impress two visitors, a wealthy art collector and his fiancĂŠe’s father, a pompous colonel. Stephanie Murray, Marshall’s wife and another A-list Drama Docker, plays the ex-girlfriend of the sculptor, who shows up at an inopportune time to add further chaos to evening that goes seriously awry when a fuse blows, plunging everyone into darkness. Other cast members include Bryanna Savalesky, as the fianecĂŠe, Chiam Rosemarin as the fiancĂŠe’s father, Dianna Ammon as an eccentric upstairs neighbor, Randy Marinez as the owner of the purloined furniture, Louis Mangione as the millionaire art dealer and Fred Albert as a German employee of the London electricity board. The ensemble, Moody said, has been a delight to work with. “They are all really strong and professional,â€? he said. “Marshall is a brilliant leading man — he’s jumped into inventing the physical comedy. The whole point of the show is the physicality, and you have to invent it and make it up. So he tries a lot of things, and whenever I laugh, we know we’ve got something.â€?

Island kids find the rhythms in a play by Shakespeare A group of 7- to 13-year-old island kids has teamed up to tackle the high drama of Shakespeare’s “Romeo and Juliet,â€? and they’ll show off what they’ve learned about swordfighting, family feuds and doomed romance at a free performance this weekend. The show is the culmination of a class offered by the Vashon Shakespeare Festival, a new organization on the island founded by AimĂŠe Lewis van Roekel, a talented theater artist and educator who recently moved to the island. Lewis van Roekel teaches weekly Shakespeare-for-kids classes and camps at Ober Park. “Romeo and Julietâ€? is her second offering; earlier in the year, she led an afterschool class that explored the Bard’s “Twelfth Night, or What You Will,â€? a more comedic and playful work. But this time around, she said, her students have embraced the challenges of a play she said is often misunderstood as simply being a love story. “It’s really much more about the pointless war between the two families, so that’s fun

As a performer and director, she’s worked with companies in New York and San Francisco, piling up an impressive list of credits and collaborations with well-known theater artists. And as a teacher, she brought the educational programs of the San Francisco Shakespeare Festival to at-risk youth throughout the Bay Area. Family connections and her husband’s job in Seattle brought Lewis van Roekel to Vashon, a place she said she’s excited to share her love of Shakespeare with children. “The kids on this island are smart,� she said. “They are really fearless — there is not a lot of timidity with these kids.�

are running dry, officials say, and the state estimates a $3 billion shortfall over the next decade to maintain highways and continue ferry service. Those who have watched lawmakers wrestle with the transportation budget the past several years note that current proposed cuts aren’t as sweeping as what’s been put forward in the past. Last budget session, officials proposed completely eliminating five ferry routes, including the Point Defiance-Tahlequah and Southworth-Vashon runs. And last fall, Washington State Ferries, with a mandate to shave $5 million from its budget, put forward a plan that included cuts to Vashon’s south-end route as well as extended the period of reduced winter service on the north end. “I have to say that they are less this time, ‌ but for Vashon, this is about a serious of a cut that we can have,â€? said Greg Beardsley, chair of Vashon’s Ferry Advisory Committee. Beardsley recently spent time in Olympia with a handful of other islanders, lobbying lawmakers to sustain ferry service and delegate funds to continue building new vessels. Both the House and Senate transportation budgets provide $107 million to complete two 144-car ferries currently under construction, but not to build additional badly needed boats. “Seven vessels are over 45 years old, and not one of them is in good shape,â€? Beardsley

'JMF1IPUP

The Point Defiance-Tahlequah run, served by the Chetzemokah, would see a reduction in service if proposed budget cuts are passed by the Legislature. said. Rep. Joe Fitzgibbon (D-Burien), who represents Vashon and has become known as a staunch ferry service advocate, says that like past years, he’s been hearing from many islanders about the House’s proposed cuts. He said he’s gotten emails from families concerned about traveling to sports games in Tacoma and islanders that own busi-

nesses there and need to travel back and forth during the day. “It’s a good sign that there are not proposed cuts on the north end, but cuts on the south end would affect people on Vashon, too,� he said. “That still needs to be fixed.� Fitzgibbon said there is still hope of passing a comprehensive transportation package this session, enacting new taxes to fund high-

way projects, maintain rural roads, avoid cuts to ferries and even build new boats. But at the least, he hoped the Legislature, as it has in past years, could move funds around to avoid the proposed cuts. “This year cuts are small enough it may be possible for us to find the money. There are still some places we can look,� he said. In a move that has garnered mixed reactions, the Senate transportation committee also included in its budget $250,000 to fund a study and plan to convert ferry fare collection to the state’s Good2Go electronic tolling system. Good2Go is currently used to collect tolls on the 520 Bridge and the Tacoma Narrows Bridge. Last winter, a private consulting group suggested the state could save money by using the same tolling system on ferries. Beardsley said the idea itself wasn’t bad, but on Vashon it would likely mean allowing passengers and walk-ons to ride free while steeply increasing vehicle fares. “It is a very real possibility,� he said. Fitzgibbon said he thought such a radical change in the fare structure would be a hard sell. “It’s something we need to give a little more scrutiny to,� he said. As for the service cuts currently on the table, Fitzgibbon said concerned islanders should contact members of the House and Senate transportation committees with specific examples of how the reductions would affect their lives. Budget talks are scheduled to wrap up this month. “When people can be specific about the hardships associated with service cuts, that’s helpful information for other legislators to have,� he said.

Local businesses discover the benefits of LED lighting LED bulbs use less energy, last longer and don’t create heat By NATALIE JOHNSON Staff Writer

In the 1990s, compact fluorescent lightbulbs (CFLs) revolutionized the lighting world with their energy saving glow. Now, there’s a new bulb on the scene. More and

more, islanders are turning to LED technology to light their homes and businesses. “LED bulbs are really just now starting to be available on a wide basis, where you can walk into True Value or Island Lumber and find them,� said Patti McClements, who heads Puget Sound Energy’s community office on Vashon. “A year and a half or two years ago that wasn’t the case.� Light-emitting diode — or LED — light bulbs last longer than CFLs, are even more

Area rugs can hold up to 8 pounds of dirt before they ever look dirty! Dirt is an abrasive element that over time can wear out your rugs prematurely, so it is important that fine oriental rugs are cleaned on a regular basis, this also helps to remove and protect against moths and the damage they can cause. So don’t wait until your area rug looks dirty by then it may be to late. Oriental rugs & specialty rugs differ greatly in their construction, dyeing methods and fiber content, and we understand these differences, assuring a safe and thorough in-plant cleaning of your specialty rugs. Whatever your rug’s origin, you can trust it to the professionals at CFM Carpet & Upholstery Cleaners.

energy efficient, and unlike CFLs, they produce light at a very low temperature. About a year ago, Priscilla Schleigh, who owns Giraffe, took advantage of a PSE promotion and changed almost all of the bulbs in her shop to LED. Since then, she said, the shop’s energy bill has dropped by about $30 a month and the space stays cooler on warm summer days. “It feels good in here,� she said. “We’ve been very happy, and we’ve suggested it to quite a number of other people.� Schleigh said she and her husband had been thinking about replacing their bulbs for some time. LED bulbs, however, cost more than their CFL or incandescent counterparts, and buying several at once, she said, can mean a significant investment. Then Schleigh learned of PSE’s Small Business Lighting Program. A PSE consultant visited Giraffe to discuss their options, and Schleigh was able to purchase new LED bulbs and fixtures at a discounted rate. “If we hadn’t partnered with this program, it would have been a huge expense for us,� Schleigh said.

McClements said several other Vashon business or organizations have also taken advantage of the Small Business Lighting Program, including the Vashon Senior Center, the Vashon Quilt Shop and The Hardware Store Restaurant. Though there’s currently no such PSE program for homeowners, McClements said now is a great time for islanders to change their homes over to LED. There are a wide variety of LED bulbs available, she said, including ones that cast a warmer glow (look for a low Kelvin rating). There are also good options for LED-specific light fixtures that work well with the bulbs and maximize their energy saving potential. LED bulbs cost more up front, but need to be replaced much less often — some can last up to 30 years. “Paying $8 for a light bulb that is going to last 30 years probably pencils out in the end, and it makes sense to do that,� McClements said. To learn more about PSE’s Small Business Lighting Program, call the Energy Advisor Hotline at 1-800-562-1482, or stop by Vashon’s PSE community office.

Pirate baseball pounded by strong Fife team By RITA ALLMAN For The Beachcomber

After having their planned doubleheader in Chelan cancelled due to bad weather, the Vashon baseball team was left with only one non-league game to play over spring break. The team traveled to Fife on Thursday to take on the Trojans and lost, 14-0. Fife is a 2A school that won a league title last year and is currently leading its league this year with a record of 9-1. Vashon coach Steve Hall, however, always likes to challenge his team, and this proved an opportunity to do so. Josh Myer pitched the first three innings for the Pirates, allowing three earned runs on four hits. He gave up only one walk and had no strikeouts. Ezra Lacina relieved in the fourth and ran into some trouble, giving up six hits and five walks in twothirds of an inning. When the dust had settled, 11 runs had been scored. Kelly Sullivan came on and recorded the final out. On this day, there was no Pirate offense as Trojan senior hurler Andrew Waltner threw a no-hitter. Waltner had five strikeouts and allowed no base on balls. Line score: Fife 14 runs, 11 hits, 3 errors, Vashon 0 runs, 0 hits, 4 errors. With spring break over, the Pirates continued league play on Monday after press deadline with a game against Cedar Park Christian at home. — Rita Allman does web and team support for the Pirates baseball team.

Rowers rake in medals at large Eugene event By PAT CALL For The Beachcomber

Tucked into the Cascade foothills southeast of Eugene, Dexter Reservoir provides a picturesque setting for the Covered Bridge Regatta, a recent addition to the spring rowing calendar for both Vashon’s master and junior programs. Last weekend, more than 1,000 rowers representing 39 clubs participated in the dayand-a-half event: a 2,000-meter sprint course for the juniors and 1,000 meters for the masters. Race officials and rowers played cat and mouse with some squalls on Saturday, pushing the last races of the day way past dinner time, but in the end all of the scheduled races were rowed. On Sunday morning the strong headwind from the day before gave way to a light tail wind and a calm surface to the delight of the crews. Vashon rowers participated in 24 juniors and nine masters races. Strong competition from Oregon, Northern California and some noteworthy Seattle-area clubs meant that many races had all eight lanes filled, and Vashon left with fewer gold medals than in previous regattas this spring. In total, the juniors collected three gold, seven silver and seven bronze medals, while the masters earned two silver and four bronze medals. The junior novice four with Fletcher Call, Jacob Plihal, Lorenzo Higuera and Forrest Miller, coxed by Ally Clevenger, started Vashon off early with a solid win of 15 second over all 18 other boats in the category. Later on Saturday, Tea Schafer and Leanne Anderson rowed

In the final race of the regatta, the girls’ varsity four of Taegan Lynch, Maya Krah, Emmie Kehoe and Bryn Gilbert, coxed by Clevenger, rowed to a twoboat-length win. Also noteworthy at this regatta, masters women rowers Su Dewalt, Marilyn Kleyn, Kim Goforth, Lisa Huggenvik and Mary Rothermel medaled in all four of the races that they entered, taking two silver and three bronze medals (two Vashon boats competed in one of the races). In fact, between the masters and juniors, all but one rower returned with at least one medal. To put some perspective on the 2,000 meter race distance,

She has consistently placed in the top two in the 100 meters, 200 meters and the long and triple jumps at each meet. As a freshman, Annika is currently ranked number three in the state in the 200 meters.

it is the same as the length of the track at the Kentucky Derby. Race horses cover that distance in about 2 minutes, compared to the best times at Covered Bridge of around 7 minutes. Because of the availability of daylight and weather conditions, crew training is sometimes done on a rowing machine or ergometer, and the 2,000-meter distance is a benchmark on land as well. The “erg� is a tool that tells rowers the hard truth about just how hard they pulled that last stroke. Just as every serious runner knows his or her marathon time, every rower knows his or her 2,000-meter erg score. Rowers like to say that “ergs don’t float,� meaning that being able to pull a very low time on a rowing machine doesn’t ensure a championship performance on the water.

The Covered Bridge Regatta calculates a team efficiency score for all of the junior teams represented. Since there are big and small clubs that enter many and few races, respectively, this calculation attempts to level the playing field in awarding a team trophy. Based on that calculation, the Vashon team placed eighth out of 16 junior programs represented. Coach Richard Parr again was pleased with the efforts of both the masters and the juniors. “We were in the top three in the vast majority of our races, but there is still work to do,� he said. “We don’t compete against the California teams except at Nationals, and the strength of those programs is a good calibration for us.� — Pat Call is a recreational rower and parent of two junior crew members.

FYI DEATH

-JMB-FF(JMMJBN Lila Lee Gilliam was born on Dec. 17, 1928, in Seattle, to Homer Bostain and Nellie Alexander Bostain. Like many families during the Depression, the Bostains moved to California for work. Her parents and older brothers worked in the fields on her uncle’s ranch while Lila watched her younger sister. Once the economy

improved, Lila’s family moved to Vashon Island. As an adult, Lila moved with her daughter to Seattle, where she held a variety of jobs. She worked at the Seattle World’s Fair in l962 and managed one of the restaurants at the Edgewater Inn, the hotel where famous performers stayed in Seattle. While working at the Rainier Brewery, Lila became one of the first women hired to their quality control department. She continued her education while working there and was one credit short of earning an engineering degree when she retired. It was at the brewery that Lila met John Gilliam, who she later married. John died

at 46. Upon her retirement, Lila moved to Sutherlin, Ore., to be near her daughter and grandchildren. Despite suffering from hearing loss, Lila attended as many of her grandchildren and great-grandchildren’s activities as she could. She was a voracious reader and familiar patron at the local library and book stores. Lila cherished her friends at the Sutherlin Senior Center and had fun preparing treats for their birthdays. Lila died on Dec. 19, 2012, with her family by her side. Lila was preceded in death by her husband John, her mother and father, brothers Richard and

Gilbert, sister-in-law Joni, sister Jean, and son-in-law Gary Von Derahe. She is survived by her daughter Claudette; grandson Cord and his wife Jennifer; granddaughter Michele and her husband Greg Sanberg; grandchildren Gavin, Savannah, Abigail, Madeline and Elizabeth; brother Ken; sister-in-law Sally Bostain and numerous nieces and nephews.

including Vashon Health Center manager Rita Cannell, say that care on Vashon will not be curtailed in any way. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We have been assured time and time again that it will be business as usual,â&#x20AC;? she said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Women can still get their birth control prescriptions here; men can still get their vasectomies here if they want them, and to terminate a pregnancy, we will still refer out. Making sure that patients get the care they need will continue regardless of the religious affiliation.â&#x20AC;? Dr. Gary Koch, a longtime health center physician and the clinicâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s medical director, also expressed his support for the merger in a statement released through the Franciscan public relations office. He said the change could be the best thing that has happened to the clinic and, like Cannell, stated that patients could expect the same range of services the facility has always provided. â&#x20AC;&#x153;The Franciscan Health System has assured me that the doctor-patient relationship is paramount and that theyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ll support my medical judgment when it comes to caring for my patients; it says so right in my employment contract,â&#x20AC;? he said in the statement. Other islanders, however, have concerns about the ramifications of a faith-based system providing health care, including Kate Hunter and May Gerstle. The two women organized Thursdayâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s community meeting and, with a small number of others, have established a group they call Vashon HealthWatch. Hunter and Gerstle said they began collaborating last fall on how to improve the Vashon Health Center facility, an aging structure many consider inadequate. When they learned of the upcoming affiliation, however, their focus changed. They encourage all interested islanders to attend next weekâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s meeting. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We hope people will come and get their questions answered and be able to make choices on how theyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re going to deal with their health care based on what theyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve heard,â&#x20AC;? Gerstle said. At the heart of the matter, they say, are concerns about just how closely Vashon Health Center physicians will be required to follow a set of guidelines called the â&#x20AC;&#x153;Ethical and Religious Directives for Catholic Health Care Services.â&#x20AC;? These directives, which Catholic health care systems are mandated to follow, are written by the U.S. Catholic Conference of Bishops and contain 72 guidelines that span six categories, including the professional-patient relationship and beginning-of-life and endof-life issues. The directives state explicitly that Catholic health care services must adopt the directives as policy and adhere to them. Regarding reproductive health, the directives allow only natural family planning and forbid contraceptives. They also prohibit sterilization procedures unless deemed medically necessary and forbid abortion, including for ectopic pregnancies, which can be life-threatening for women. Advocates for end-of-life choice say theyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re concerned that Catholic health systems interfere with the Death with Dignity Act, which Washington voters passed in 2008. The law allows patients with a terminal diagnosis and a life expectancy of six months or less to obtain a life-ending prescription from a physician. The directives, however, strictly prohibit physician-assisted death. The Catholic

Highline and Franciscans call their new relationship an affiliation, but Highline is now owned by the Franciscan system, Benedum said. The Franciscan system is one of the largest health care systems in the state. It, in turn, is owned by the Coloradobased Catholic Health Initiatives, one of the largest faith-based health care systems in the country. The deal, announced last June, became effective April 1. Supporters of this change include Cannell, who has worked at the health center for 35 years and has seen it through some challenging times. She described genuine enthusiasm for what lies ahead. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I look at it as very positive,â&#x20AC;? she said. She cautioned that because the deal has been finalized so recently, many details have yet to be worked out.

Anne Diffenderfer Spangler

Spangler, died peacefully at the age of 102 on April 12, 2013 at Vashon Community Care. She is survived by her children Ellen Spangler Wilson (Larry), Robert W. Spangler (Carol) and Charles H. Spangler, her grandchildren Thomas A. Wilson (Susan), James A. Wilson (Deion), Robert L. Wilson (Donna), Anne Wilson Parzick (Robert), Kristen L. Spangler (Mark Ellerbrook) and David Spangler (Kelly Wallis), and nine great grandchildren. Anne was born and raised in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania. She was a graduate of Allegheny College, and after several years of work in the Pittsburgh School System married Henry. After Henryâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s end of military service during World War II, the family moved to McKeesport, Pennsylvania where Anne was a devoted mother and enjoyed friends, church, cooking and baking. Henry and Anne then spent their retirement years in Wrightsville Beach, North Carolina where they made new friends and enjoyed the beach. In 2001 Anne moved to Maryland to be closer to Bob, and then accompanied Bob and Carol to Vashon in 2005. The family extends its thanks to Vashon Community Care for the good care and compassion that Anne received in her later years. The VCC staff and Anneâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s private caregivers were devoted to her wellbeing and comfort, and assisted the family throughout her years there. A memorial service will be held at the Union Dale Cemetery chapel in Pittsburgh on April 20. Memorial donations may be sent to Vashon Community Care, 15333 Vashon Highway SW, Vashon, WA 98070.

dows were always put in place for those species, she said, or if applicants were required to survey the locations in question before getting approvals. â&#x20AC;&#x153;It would be one thing if it was here and there, but the gap is so huge and so disconcerting because weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re talking about Puget Sound recovery, and everyone knows habitat loss is the number-one issue.â&#x20AC;? Carey said she hoped Sound Action could work with state officials to identify where their processes could be improved so that eventually all HPAs would include the necessary restrictions to protect fish. Should the state be uncooperative, she said, the nonprofit may consider taking legal action to challenge approved permits. â&#x20AC;&#x153;This is not intended just to be adversarial to Fish & Wildlife. Weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re trying to fix a broken system. The law is a good law. â&#x20AC;Ś There are some clear gaps they need to fix,â&#x20AC;? Carey said. Thurston said that while she didnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t agree with Careyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s assessment, she was open to taking a closer look at the audit and the HPAs in question. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ll take a hard look. Are there instances we should have done something different? Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m not saying there arenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t going to be those instances, but I know we did a better job than what Amy said in her audit,â&#x20AC;? she said. As for Sound Action, Kalhorn said she hoped the budding organization would eventually become a partner of sorts with state and county permitting agencies. While agencies may feel pressure from the development community, she said, Sound Action could be a voice for the environment. â&#x20AC;&#x153;So those folks working to protect the commons know we have their backs and we want those laws to be applied,â&#x20AC;? she said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I think this audit opens up the door, it reveals a problem, and I think weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re here to help fix it.â&#x20AC;?

set for raccoons and about to be shot by the person who trapped her. Fortunately, someone intervened and saved her little life. Now, after this narrow escape, this girl is looking for a safe home where she can live the life of luxury. Niki is a sweet roll-over kind of cat that would be a great family pet. She looks suspiciously like another VIPP cat named Higgins who was found in the same neighborhood.

Born 2007, Star is a petite and sensitive girl who was completely bowled over by the resident cat in the home that adopted her in 2011. They tried everything to make it work since they were so in love with this little girl. In the end, they knew she could not be happy living with another cat especially one with a big personality. Star is back at VIPP and looking for a home where she can be the only star attraction in her new home.

Cee Cee is a beautiful pit-mix puppy,

about a year and a half old. She is full of energy, but ready to please. She is still being tested with other dogs and cats, but seems to have a very good attitude and wants to show you her charming side. If you are looking for a puppy with energy and a winning personality, come meet Cee Cee. There is $125.00 adoption fee.
