Vashon’s teen drinking levels still above state average Middle schoolers, however, are drinking much less By NATALIE JOHNSON Staff Writer

Vashon high schoolers continue to drink alcohol and use marijuana at rates higher than their peers in the rest of the state, but middleschool use is down, according to a recent survey, giving hope to those working to address Vashon’s high levels of youth substance abuse. “That’s where I see we’re making headway,” said Luke McQuillin, the Vashon Alliance to Reduce Substance Abuse’s (VARSA) project coordinator. “That’s the piece that really excites me.” Results from the latest Healthy Youth Survey (HYS), administered to sixth-, eighth-, 10th- and 12th-grad-

ers last fall, show a mixed picture, according to those involved in a farreaching effort to get Vashon youth to abstain from drugs and alcohol. On one hand, high school drinking rates remain well above the state average. Last fall, 65 percent of Vashon 12th-graders reported they had drunk alcohol in the past 30 days, compared with just 36 percent of 12th-graders statewide. In the 10th grade, 36 percent of those surveyed reported drinking in the past 30 days, compared with 23 percent statewide. Both grade levels also reported drinking at rates slightly higher than 10th- and 12th-graders surveyed two years ago, and binge drinking rates on the island, measured for the first time this year, surpassed state averages. Marijuana use among high schoolers is also SEE SURVEY, 18

Granny’s Attic looks to fund community health projects Members vote to change how thrift shop gives money By SUSAN RIEMER Staff Writer

After more than 35 years serving the island, Granny’s Attic is in the midst of a sea change in how it bestows its funds, ending its monthly subsidies and adopting a grant-based approach that will provide financial support for a variety of health-related programs. Granny’s Attic first opened in 1975 to support the work of the fledgling clinic that is now the Vashon Health Center and has grown to the thriving thrift store many islanders shop at today. Business is booming to such an extent that in recent years Granny’s has provided $200,000 annually for health care on the island, according to Janet Kime, the president of the Granny’s Attic board of direc-

tors. In fact, in March Granny’s surpassed the $4 million mark for funds it has given away. The lion’s share of the money — $3.5 million — has gone to the Vashon Health Center and Highline Medical Center, which now owns the clinic, Kime said. After Highline stepped in to help the financially ailing clinic more than a decade ago, Kime said, Granny’s initially had a contract saying it would provide funds for specific Vashon needs, such as the 24-hour call service. But for many years now, she added, Granny’s monthly check has gone to Highline’s operating fund, and many Granny’s Attic members, as well as Granny’s manager Tim Johnson, have wanted to better see and track where the money is going. Last week, Granny’s Attic members voted to adopt the grant approach that will allow for funding of more community-oriented projects. SEE GRANNY’S, 13

Hundreds show for event at Mukai Speakers, including the county executive, call for better preservation of farmhouse By NATALIE JOHNSON Staff Writer

About 200 people showed at the Mukai farmhouse and garden on Saturday for an event organized to rally support for revitalizing the historic site. The gathering — which included speeches, musical performances and a small street fair — culminated with a group photo on the street outside the house, with islanders as well as a significant slate of government and nonprofit leaders gathering behind large letters reading “this place matters.” “Many of us have hoped for a moment like this,” said Glenda Pearson, a Friends of Mukai board member who addressed the crowd. Indeed, the event came in the midst of a long dispute over the historic property, purchased more than a decade ago by the nonprofit Island Landmarks. Islanders concerned over the state of the house and Japanese garden just outside town — which they say have fallen into disrepair and are not open to the public as originally promised — have formed their own nonprofit and are actively working to see the property change hands. County and state officials have also expressed concern about the situation at Mukai and what they call Island Landmarks’ apparent failure to live up to requirements of public grants that funded the property’s purchase. “It’s an integral part of the history of the island,

and it needs to be encouraged, loved, cherished and nurtured in every way,” said Katharine Golding, a member of the Vashon-Maury Island Heritage Association’s board, who spoke at the event. The Friends of Mukai recently nominated the farmhouse for the Washington Trust for Historical Preservation’s list of most endangered historic properties in the state. It was added to the list last month, prompting the friends group to quickly organize Saturday’s event, which was co-sponsored by the Washington Trust as well as the heritage association and 4Culture, King County’s cultural arts SEE MUKAI, 18

Beginning next Tuesday, islanders can get help accessing a full slate of social services at a new office in Vashon town. The Orientation, Assistance, Support & Information Station (OASIS) will be open three days a week at the Vashon Senior Center. A project of Vashon’s Social Services Network, it will be staffed by volunteers who will help islanders navigate various programs and services provided by Vashon nonprofits as well as state, county and federal agencies, said Chris Szala, director of Vashon HouseHold. Vashon HouseHold, one of several nonprofits involved in the Social Services Network, secured $14,000 in annual funding for the office through the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD). “There’s never been a single place to go,” Szala said. “It seems like it would be very user friendly for a lot of people.” Szala said trained volunteers from the Social Services Network — which also includes Vashon Youth & Family Services, Vashon Community Care, the Interfaith Council to Prevent Homelessness, the food bank, Seeds 4 Success, DoVE and the senior center — will answer phone calls and meet with visitors to discuss their needs, help them understand their options and assist in any application process. Computers will also be available at the office for people to do research, download forms and submit online applications. Emma Amiad, with IFCH, said several surveys have shown there’s a need on Vashon for such a one-stop center for social services information. Oftentimes, she said,

The Orientation, Assistance, Support & Information Station (OASIS) will be open from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. Tuesdays, Wednesdays and Thursdays, beginning Tuesday, June 11, at the Vashon Senior Center on Bank Road. Hours may expand in the future. The office can also be reached at 567-9794.

those in need of help find themselves calling and visiting multiple offices, and they still may not be connected with the right organizations or programs in the end. “We all talk to people who have lived here for years who didn’t know we had certain services available,” Amiad said. “There are so many services here, but if folks don’t know how to connect with them, what good does it do?” If the office becomes well used, Szala said, the network may expand its hours. The group also plans to begin offering classes at the senior center based on community needs. Free classes, for instance, could teach seniors how to use computers or walk people through the home buying process. “It depends on what comes up, what we’re seeing people wanting, and we’ll tailor classes to that,” he said. Initial funding from HUD will pay for office rent, help purchase new computers and a television and possibly provide a small stipend for class teachers. Szala said the group originally hoped to hire someone to staff the office, but didn’t get enough HUD funding to do so. “I really hope this is the beginning of something more,” he said. “More integration of all of us together can only benefit the community in the long run.”

When Melinda Sontgerath opened The Hardware Store Restaurant eight years ago, she planned to open a wine shop in the small space next door. That vision will finally come to fruition this weekend, when she opens Vine to Vashon — a wine shop with a twist. Sontgerath said she is aiming for simplicity and a lack of the pretense that can accompany wine. Instead of a dizzying array of bottles lining the shelves, the shop, nestled between The Hardware store and Vashon Liquor, will sell six wines and all of them will be on tap. Such a system is gaining popularity in restaurants, she said, in part because wine stays fresh in kegs, unlike in bottles. When she put the idea together with the space next door, she knew she was going ahead with the plan. “It was a lightbulb moment,” she said. Wine will be sold in

A new board focusing on island health care is forming to relay community concerns about health-related issues and needs to the Highline and Franciscan board of directors, who oversee the Vashon Health Center. The goal of the group, called the Vashon Health Center Citizens Advisory Committee, is to increase communication and foster relationships, according to May Gerstle, a member of Vashon HealthWatch, and one of the organizers of the new group. The plan calls for 12 people who represent various health-related organizations to serve on the board, with six at-large positions. Interested individuals are invited to submit a biography outlining their relevant background and experience and a letter of interest that outlines why they wish to serve on the advisory committee. Terms are two years. To obtain an application, contact May Gerstle at 4630974 or jamger@comcast.net. Applications should be sent to VHCAC c/o P.O. Box 13527, Burton, WA 98013.

It’s easy.” Most all the wine served will be Eastern Washington wine, but Sontegerath said she will reserve one tap for Vashon wineries and hopes to provide maps and promote them. The rest of the wine will be from the Northwest Wine Co-op in Walla Walla, which curates regional and vinyard-designated wines for barrels and kegs. In addition to wine, Vine to Vashon will also offer olive oil, grape seed oil and balsamic vinegar.

This congregation has what Houston called as “a predilection to immediate engagement.” That predilection may have been what drew Houston, his 17-year-old daughter Lauren and church member Larry Commeree to Vietnam with Seattle-area Presbyterians earlier this spring. They went, Houston said, to learn more about what is happening there and to bring back ideas for partnering with congregations in that area of the world. Close to home, several members say they are contending with a challenge common to many churches: a lack of young people. They would like to see more families with young children become members and say the congregation encourages visitors of all ages to attend. “The doors are open,” O’Block said. “Everyone is welcome.”

EDITORIAL

Changing seas already threaten some creatures

Many now support action at the Mukai farmhouse

Increased carbon dioxide will affect a a variety of sea life

We expected Saturday’s event outside the Mukai farmhouse to draw a crowd of islanders concerned about the situation at the historic site and supportive of the Friends of Mukai’s efforts. What we didn’t expect was the impressive slate of county and state officials who also attended. Julie Koler, director of the county’s historic preservation office, was there, as was Chris Moore, field director of the statewide nonprofit that recently declared the farmhouse endangered, and a top official from 4Culture. Joe McDermott, Vashon’s representative on the King County Council, spoke at the gathering, and perhaps most significant was an appearance and speech by County Executive Dow Constantine, a busy politician who doesn’t frequently come to the island. Some spoke in support of the Friends of Mukai, the group seeking to take control of the property from Mary Matthews, director of Island Landmarks, which owns it. Others were less political — Moore said he’d work with either party to bring about progress. All who gave their input at the event, however, spoke of the site’s clear significance and the need for a new direction there. The home and garden’s state of disrepair and the lack of public access, they said, have gone on long enough. An effort that began with a small group of islanders years ago is now clearly drawing regional attention, and rightfully so. The Beachcomber has tried to cover the dispute between Island Landmarks and the group now called the Friends of Mukai fairly and with balanced reported. Indeed, the situation sometimes boils down to he-said-she-said, and it’s not always clear who’s in the right. Like Moore, we don’t necessarily want to take sides. We simply want to see something meaningful happen at the house and garden, a historical and beloved island place that currently has no clear plan for preservation or sustainable funding source in its future. On Saturday, the current dispute wasn’t always discussed, but it was clear who was on what side of the fence, literally. Those calling for significant change in how the property is managed, and those with the energy and political backing to help make it happen, gathered together on the street. Matthews stayed on the grounds, keeping them closed, she said, because of the size of the “rally” and the fact that crews were painting that day. The part-time Texas resident who holds firmly to her control over Island Landmarks and the property says she also recognizes that the house and garden aren’t on a sustainable path and need new ownership. However, she offers little explanation for how they might be reclaimed, aside from continuing to put her and her husband’s own money into the property while hoping the National Park Service will eventually take it on. With National Park Service ownership a far stretch, we’re told, we’re willing to bet those outside the fence on Saturday are better equipped to find solutions for this Vashon place, especially if they continue to collaborate.

Some of our local beach residents, the Pacific blue mussels, have been in the headlines recently. Not unlike many human Americans, it seems they are threatened with homelessness. Vashon and Maury beaches are currently home to thousands of these pretty shellfish, Mytilus trossulus, which usually live on boulders, beach cobbles or even driftwood logs on the upper beach. Unlike most other bivalves, such as butter clams and geoducks, mussels don’t bury themselves in sand. Instead, a tiny juvenile mussel settles out of seawater onto a surface, such as a rock or barnacle. To hold on tightly to its chosen home site, a mussel secretes a strong substance called a byssal thread, which instantly adheres tightly and is waterproof. Secured with multiple byssal threads, the mussel can withstand even the strong, wind-driven waves of winter that roll rocks and driftwood across beaches, scouring the stones’ surfaces. Byssal threads are being studied by scientists who would like to learn, for medical reasons, how to synthesize threads that can adhere to surfaces under water equally well. Usually, blue mussels settle together in clusters, and their byssal threads tie together little communities of stones, shellfish, bits of wood and seaweed and other small beach animals, such as amphipods (sand fleas), limpets, barnacles and snails (often the checkered periwinkles). On an expanse of beach consisting of small stones, which are vulnerable to dehydration in summer sun or displacement in winter waves, such communities are like oases of life, providing moisture and heightened stability for numerous tiny beach animals. Moreover, the blue mussels perform several other important functions, including cleaning and filtering seawater by feeding continuously while they are inundated. They consume detritus and plankton, and are useful as

OUR WATERS By RAYNA HOLTZ an indicator species to test for paralytic shellfish poisoning because they rapidly accumulate the toxin, but when the bloom ends, they also rapidly clean the toxin out of their systems. And what’s really important to people who love watching shoreline wildlife, mussels are a favorite food for many other species, including seastars, anemones, frilled dogwinkles, crabs, fish, ducks and shorebirds. And humans. They help sustain us all. Sadly, research results released this spring by the University of Washington’s Friday Harbor laboratory indicate that one result of the increasing acidity of ocean water will be the weakening of the mussels’ byssal threads. Acidity caused by atmospheric carbon dioxide dissolving in the ocean is predicted to reach levels that have been shown in lab experiments to weaken the threads significantly and make them less stretchy. As mussels lose their grip on the beaches and disappear, one trickledown effect will likely be a reduction of other species on the beach too, both the small ones that

Upcoming beach events The art exhibit Between the Tides will bring an intertidal community alive within the walls of Ignition Gallery Friday evening. There will be a raffle and art contest with prizes, such as a guided beach walk, Low Tide Celebration shirts by Odin Lonning and a kayak tour. On Saturday, Vashon Beach Naturalists will provide a beach program at Lisabeula. The event will enable elderly people or those who are physically disabled to sit in the shade of canopies and observe beach life carried by naturalists from the beach in containers of seawater. The tide will reach a low of -1.5 feet at about 11:30 a.m., enabling access to the hiding places of hermit crabs, limpets, anemones, sea urchins and many other shy critters of the lower beach area.

LETTERS TO THE EDITOR Driving

Talking on the phone is too common on Vashon roads As a runner, walker and sometimes bicyclist, I welcomed Steve Abel’s column on sharing the road between cyclists and motorists (“Laws and courtesy should rule the road,� May 29). With no separate paths on Vashon for those of us who prefer not to drive everywhere we go on the island, it’s critically important that we all recognize the rights of others. I’d just like to add one more issue to his list. When I walk the roads, I’m positioned to observe all the drivers holding onto and using phones. And for some reason, maybe because we generally don’t drive freeway speeds here, the number of Vashon drivers who choose to talk on their phones while driving is more common than elsewhere and seems to be increasing. I can think of four good reasons why we shouldn’t do this: It’s dangerous; it sets a bad example, not only for others in your car, but for the other calling party; you don’t really know who’s observing your disrespect for others, and it’s against the law. I’d be willing to bet that most of the

drivers who talk and/or text while driving wouldn’t think of routinely running stop signs, driving while drunk or, heaven forbid, not waiting their turn at the four-way stops, but the principle is the same. And it’s more obvious to observers than you might think. — Charlie Peterson

Quartermaster Harbor

Poorly placed crab pots are a hazard for island boaters Warning boaters: There’s a mine field at the entrance to Quartermaster Harbor.  Not the exploding kind, rather the kind that imperils navigation, snags propellers, stops engines and can cost thousands of dollars in towing and repairs for boaters.  Scores of poorly marked and indiscriminately placed crab pot floats litter the entire entrance to the busy harbor. The combination of faded markings and random placement make an obstacle course during the best of conditions. Wave action, wind or impaired visibility can create a real peril for safe navigation throughout the first half-mile or so of the harbor entrance. This would not be a difficult problem

Page 7

to solve without restricting legitimate crabbing in the harbor entrance. Brighter float markings or, better yet, the use of small orange flags or banners on the floats are the simplest solutions. Better judgment by commercial, tribal and public crabbers in keeping open a clear channel for safe navigation down the middle of the harbor entrance would be a more complicated but perhaps necessary alternative. After all, it’s considered common sense to keep public roads and highways free of personal property that endangers others. The same should be true of our aquatic “highways.�   — Charles “Buzz� Blick

Ferry parking lot

Vehicle was towed after parking for too long Our truck was towed off-island last month from the lower section of the north-end ferry parking lot. The tires were marked, a notice was appended and then the vehicle was removed a week later. We are writing to let our fellow islanders know that the 48-hour limit in the lower lot, as well as the two-week limit in the upper lot, can be enforced at any time at the discretion of the officer on patrol. Don’t assume that because you have exceeded these limits in the past without

incident that you won’t come back to the island one night and find your vehicle missing. The sheriff’s office is working hard to establish a legal place on the island to where impounded vehicles can be towed, but until this happens, please know that the cost of retrieving one’s vehicle is extraordinary due to off-island towing fees plus daily storage fees. — Barry and Wendy Grosskopf

Park district

Commissioner behavior seems arrogant again The letter regarding the Vashon Park District in last week’s Beachcomber (“Board action regarding caretakers causes dismay�) calls to mind the “Gang of Two� running the show more than a year ago. The arrogance of those two in disregarding more than 20 years of productive and valuable contribution to our island community on the part of Betsy Frazee and her Vashon Junior Civic Ballet was unbelievable as well as extralegal. I have followed with amusement their travails; for many it’s “chickens coming home to roost.� — Michael Goth

We’ve seen several places with you and we’re getting excited about finding a home on Vashon. I have a question about this business of staging. My wife says not to bother asking you about it but I just don’t get it. Some of these places, especially the vacant ones, look weird with phony fruit in a bowl and the table all set like someone lived there. What’s the point?

A:

Staging a home for sale is a fairly recent phenomenon in our local market. Real estate professionals in cities have been doing it a lot longer. There are several types of staging. One is to make the house looked lived in when it’s really vacant. It makes the place look warmer and more inviting and allows potential buyers to imagine their own furnishings in each room. The best of these make the home look as if the sellers are still there, but just very tidy. Another form of staging is working with a home when the family really is still living there. The listing agent helps them decide how to de-clutter their home and remove distracting items. They may suggest adding some bright new color or rearranging furniture to have the place look larger and roomier. This is actually the hardest form of staging since the sellers have to be convinced to change the way they have been living in the house. Another type of staging is sort of suggesting the uses for the rooms. This could be a child’s chair and teddy bear against the wall of a small bedroom to suggest a child’s room. It could mean a single, nice piece of furniture in the living room or a TV and chairs in a family room. You’d be surprised how many buyers aren’t sure of the use of some rooms. I think the wax fruit and the wine glasses set up in the dining room is going a bit overboard. It doesn’t fool anyone and often makes potential buyers laugh. But well staged homes do show better and sell faster. You can’t argue with that.

On a stage dedicated to Vashon talent, four Vashon musicians performed over Memorial Day weekend at Seattle’s annual Folklife Festival. From left, Cami Lundeen, Allison Shirk and Kiki Means pause for a photo opportunity at the Seattle Center, the festival’s venue. Gregg Curry, not pictured, also performed. According to music organizer Pete Welch, all four musicians had an excellent time playing, and he hopes Vashon will be well represented at the festival again next year.

Vaccine documentary set on Vashon is available online The film “Everybody’s Business,” which explores the issues of childhood vaccines through the thoughts and experiences of several islanders, is available online by permission of the film’s director and producer, Laura Green. To watch the film, see vimeo .com/54813694 and type in the password, EB_preview. The film is 20 minutes long and does

not take a stand about vaccines. Instead, it explores the tensions between individual choices and collective responsibilities. Green, who said she is fascinated by the intersection of science and culture, completed the film in 2012 when she was earning her master’s degree at Stanford University’s film program. The film played on Vashon last weekend.

ARTS BRIEFS ‘Naked’ documentary Turning artistic freedom into fun that is literally freewheeling is the subject of “Beyond Naked,” a prize-winning film presented by Vashon Film Society at 9:30 p.m. Friday at the Vashon Theatre. The documentary follows the stories of four first-time riders who embrace the challenge of slathering on body paint and biking sans clothing in Seattle’s Fremont solstice parade. Besides profiling the riders, filmmaker Dan McComb includes the back story of the Fremont Arts Council and how the neighborhood first reacted when the naked cyclists started showing up in the parade. McComb, producer Lisa Cooper and some of the bike riding cast and crew members plan to attend Friday’s Film Society screening and will do a Q and A following the show. Admission to Friday’s film is $7.

Kissing Potion at the Bike Kissing Potion, a band from Seattle will play a free show at 9 p.m. Friday at the Red Bicycle Bistro. The nine members of the band play funk and soul with a full horn and rhythm section. Expect tunes inspired by 1960s and ‘70s soul, funk, rhythm and blues, jazz and gospel. The show is for all ages until 11 p.m. and 21 and older after that.

Open Space dancy party Grab your dancing shoes and head to Open Space for Arts & Community at 3:30 p.m. Sunday for an afternoon of music with Vashon’s Portage Fill Big Band.

For more information, visit www. openspacevashon.org.

Staxx Brothers at Nirvana The soulful sounds of The Staxx Brothers, a seven-piece band that plays a gumbo of rap, rock and roll, funk and Motown, will play at a free show set for 9 p.m. Saturday at Nirvana. The band’s front man, Davin Stedman, reached by phone for a quick interview, said he loved bringing his band to Vashon, adding that Saturday’s show will be a kind of dress rehearsal for the band’s next tour down the California coast. The Staxx Brothers have been on the Seattle music scene for years, garnering praise and a fan base for their boisterous live shows. Check out the band’s videos at www. staxxbrothers.com.

TALE FROM THE BRINY DEEP: Island fisherman and writer Richard Bard will read from his new novel, “West of Spencer,” at 6 p.m. Tonight, at Vashon Bookshop.

Step out for a gallery cruise on Friday night Most galleries and shops are open from 6 to 9 p.m. By ELIZABETH SHEPHERD Staff Writer

Blooms & Things will display “Love Thru the Eye of the Aperture” — work by photographer Marla Smith, who has lived on Vashon for 30 years and is known for her wedding photography. In the shop’s annex, called the Bloomroom, members of Comunidad Latina de Vashon will serve free handmade Mexican food and collect donations to ensure that Spanishspeaking toddlers get a chance to attend preschool on Vashon. The group will also donate a portion of the donations to the Vashon Schools Foundation. Café Luna will show photography by Jenny Bell, with images from Italy, Samoa, Australia, Vashon and other places for sale. A portion of Bell’s sales will go to the Shillong Clean Water Project, a project she created with a partner, Eliza Steele, to support a community in northeast India in its needs for clean water, sanitation, women and business, and education for the poor. For more information, visit the group’s Facebook page. The Hardware Store Restaurant will be the site of “Print Arts: New Work,” a show by the artists of Quartermaster Press. The 10-member group will show an array of work in monotype, collograph, limitededition prints and collage and mixed-media pieces. Imagery will range from representational to abstract. The cooperative’s studio is located at the Beall Greenhouses. Regular printmaking classes and workshops are offered there throughout the year. Ignition Studios and Gallery will show “Between the Tides: An Intertidal Art Show,” to benefit the Vashon Beach Naturalists. The show includes multimedia art celebrating the beauty of Vashon’s beaches. The evening will include a “people’s choice” contest and a raffle that will award prizes to artists as well as viewers. The show was planned by Adria Magrath, who has selected oils, watercolors, encaustic works, pottery, seaweed pressings, sculpted wood as well as many other works of art to exhibit.

The Little House will exhibit new work by potter Christine Beck, who is co-owner of Waterworks Studio. Beck’s mostly Asian-influenced work has been exhibited widely at Pacific Northwest Crafts Gallery, the Cornish Gallery, Bellevue Art Fair, The Henry Gallery, Cheney Cowles Museum, Vashon Allied Arts and others. A 35-year resident of Vashon, Beck has worked as a production potter, a legal investigator, and in recent years, she took a short detour into earthenware production before returning to high fire porcelain. Her show will include platters, teapots, brie bakers/butter dishes, large bowls, individual and large casseroles and mugs made exclusively for The Little House. Raven’s Nest, a Native arts gallery and gift shop, will celebrate its one-year anniversary in its downtown location. Owners Sue and Israel Shotridge will be on hand to welcome visitors with a free Shotridge Collection print while supplies last. New art prints, art cards, cedarbark weavings, jewelry, apparel and books will be on view, and a new collection of beaded deer skin and seal medicine pouch necklaces by Sue and Autumn Shotridge have been created especially for this event. Beaded medicine pouch necklaces will also be displayed, and a short explanation about traditional herbs and uses will be included in the evening program. Snapdragon Café will celebrate its one-year anniversary on Vashon with a dance party featuring DJ Michael Whitmore and live music by Middlemarch. The café will also take over the empty shop adjacent to it, and exhibit “Thomas Patrick Hastings: A Photographic Journey 1962-1975.” Hastings, the father of café co-owner Megan Hastings, was an artist, designer, collector of antiquities from Asia, Europe and the Americas. As a traveler, he documented communities in Ireland, Hong Kong, Sweden, Zanzibar, Greece and Africa. Two Wall Gallery has held over three teen shows that opened in May in the space, with an encore reception scheduled for the gallery cruise. The first show is of gourd masks created by McMurray eighth-graders in a workshop with artist-in-residence Charlotte Masi. The second show, of Polaroid emulsion

The third show is of photo transfers done through a transfer with beeswax/encaustics, done by FamilyLink students with instructor Ray Pfortner. Vashon Community Care will be the site of a show called “Hers, Mine and Ours,” a mother-daughter exhibition featuring the work of island artist Geri Peterson, and ink drawings by her daughter Bonnie Bristow. Both women discovered a love of making art at age 49, with Peterson driven by color and light, and Bristow beginning with design and pattern. Peterson, a watercolorist, has shown at Vashon Community Care many times, but this is Bristow’s debut show anywhere. Some of the pieces in the show were created by the duo as a team, passing works back and forth. Steve Amsden will play music at the opening reception.

Vashon Tea Shop will show Beth Reiter’s “Tea Bag Cocoons” — small works of art created by using dried tea bags. Reiter opens dried tea bags, empties and cleans then and then fills them with cotton and treasures before sewing them back up and sealing them with beeswax. “Each cocoon is opaque so that you can sort of see what’s inside, but not completely,” Reiter said. “A nod to the unknown.”

More openings Puget Sound Cooperative Credit Union will show nature photography by Eugene Calabrese. The band Wax Orchard play music. VALISE will show “Hunting in the Bends of Time,” a 50-year retrospective of the works of island artist Carol Schwennesen (see story page 13). Vashon Senior Center, on Bank Road, will display watercolor batiks on rice paper by Marcia McKinzie.

Acclaimed UMO Ensemble to present new work

Students bring ‘Crime’ to life

By ELIZABETH SHEPHERD Staff Writer

Vashon High School theater students will take the stage this weekend in Beth Henley’s play, “Crimes of the Heart.” The Tony Award-winning play, which made its Broadway debut in 1981, tells the story of three sisters who reunite at their grandfather’s home in Mississippi after one of them shoots her abusive husband. Audiences should be forewarned there is also a plot line involving one of the sisters having an affair with a teenaged boy and dark material that includes a comic suicide attempt. The show, said director and theater teacher Stephen Floyd, is infused with pathos and comedy, but definitely rated PG-13. The show stars Mara Burns, Meghan Murphy, Maya McTighe, Hailey Quakenbush, Devan Barnes and Tanner Montague. Tickets, $10 for Friday and Saturday evening shows and $5 for the Sunday matinee, are on sale at the high school office and Vashon Bookshop. Showtimes are 7:30 p.m. Friday and Saturday and 2 p.m. Sunday at Vashon High School.

UMO Ensemble will debut a new work, “Box Set,” at Vashon Allied Arts on Saturday. The show, to be performed twice that evening, will feature core UMO members Maria Glanz, David Godsey, Kajsa Ingemansson, Elizabeth Klob, Mik Kuhlman, Janet McAlpin and Lyam White. Additional guest artists are Sharon Barto, Christine White and Christine Williams. UMO, based on Vashon for close to two decades, creates shows through a process rooted in physical theater, using improvisations in character, vocalizing and movement to arrive at surprising theatrical conclusions. “Box Set” — developed by the ensemble over six months — revolves around the many meanings what it means to be contained, and audiences can expect lots of physical clowning, choral work, humor and even a few ghost stories, said show organizers. Those who come to the show will also be asked to get involved. “’Box Set’ revisits UMO’s street theater roots and will include numerous audienceinteractive vignettes,” said UMO executive artist Elizabeth Klob. “Each show will be different based on audience input.” To that end, ensemble members are

Artist’s show looks back at 50 years of creativity By ELIZABETH SHEPHERD Staff Writer

Young dancers to perfom classic ballet Vashon Dance Theater will present excerpts from “Sleeping Beauty” at 7 p.m. Friday, and 2 and 5 p.m. Saturday, at the Ober Park performance room. Tickets are $12 and can be purchased at the door. The production has more than two dozen performers, ages 4 through adult, some with less than a year of experience and others have a lifetime of dance under their belts. The low-cost dance program, directed by Kim Gallo, presents a version of “The Nutcracker” each winter and another show in the spring.

Carol Schwennesen, a founding member of VALISE, will exhibit “Hunting in the Bends of Time,” a 50-year retrospective of her artwork, at the artists’ cooperative gallery this month. The show will examine how Schwennesen moved from early figure study to land-based imagery, and eventually, into the brightly colored abstract work she now makes. Schwennesen, 69, has lived a life filled with art and artmaking. Over the years, she exhibited her work widely and received numerous honors, awards and residencies. With a masters degree in painting, she’s also been a sought-after teacher and guest lecturer at numerous colleges and universities. On Vashon, she’s lent her talents to Vashon Allied Arts’ Artists in the School’s program, helping young people unlock their own potential as artists. In an artists’ statement for the show, Schwennesen noted that the process of putting together a retrospective has been eye-opening for her. “As I look back into my past artwork, I see the roots from which I came,” she wrote. “I’m caught in a web of amazement that while I was creating my artwork, it was creating me.” Schwennesen, a native Californian, moved to Vashon 22 years ago, but the idea of living on the island came to her long before that. During a telephone interview, Schwennesen revealed that she had come across a spread in a 1973 Redbook Magazine, all about life on a place called Vashon Island. She purchased and kept the magazine for many years, always dreaming about the possibility of moving here. In 1991, after years of working to make ends meet as an art teacher and a single mother to three daughters, she did just that, bringing the youngest of her daughters, who was still living at home, with her.

Carol Schwennesen has lived on Vashon for 22 years. Amazingly, the first work of art she sold on the island after moving here was purchased by Sue Wiley, whose family and lifestyle had been featured in the Redbook article. Wiley and Schwennesen had never met. “If somebody had told me what was going to happen years ago, I would still be laughing on the floor,” Schwennesen said, still marveling at the incident. VALISE will hold an opening reception of Carol Schwennesen’s exhibit on Friday from 6 to 9 p.m. For more information about her career and artwork, visit www.valisegallery.org and www.carolschwennesen.com.

GRANNY’S CONTINUED FROM 1

“It’s important for us to be transparent and have people know where their money ends up,” he said in a recent interview. For several years, Granny’s has provided $9,000 each month to Highline, totaling $108,000 per year. On top of that, Granny’s has given funds for a remodeling, repairs and equipment, Kime said, bringing the annual total from Granny’s to Highline to more than $150,000 annually. Kime and Johnson stress that Granny’s will continue to provide funds for the health center, but they will do so in a different way — and a way that people can readily see and understand. “We want people to be able to walk in the door and know where their money goes,” Johnson said. Kime and Johnson added that they are not making this change because of any political or religious reasons involving The Franciscan System’s recent acquisition of Highline, but for pragmatic and economic reasons. “This had nothing to do with their policy,” Johnson said. “It had to do with their bank book. The Franciscans are well financed.” Because of the Franciscan’s healthier financial picture, it will not need Granny’s money in the same way that Highline had grown to rely on it, Johnson said, and the recent merger between the two health systems served as a catalyst for the longdesired changes. For many years, the only services on the island Granny’s supported were at the health center. In 2007, however, the board changed its bylaws and since then has provided some support to other organizations, such as Vashon Community Care, dental

WWW.VASHONBEACHCOMBER.COM

van services and Vashon Youth & Family Services (VYFS). Success in this area fueled Granny’s members’ desire to do more of the same, Kime noted, so at last week’s membership meeting, the members voted to do just that. In addition to the significant change in funding policy, the members voted to provide $30,000 to Vashon Community Care. This amount is the “Medicaid gap” for one resident — the difference between what the center receives from the government for the cost of care compared to the actual cost of that care, Kime said. “We’re so fortunate to have that resource,” she said of VCC. “Granny’s is happy to support it.” Granny’s membership also voted to double the funds it provides to a popular medical voucher program it began last year in partnership with the clinic and VYFS. Through this program, uninsured and underinsured Vashon residents who qualify can receive vouchers for care at the Vashon Health Center. Previously, Granny’s had provided $20,000 to the program for the year, and effective June 1, Granny’s will provide $40,000 to serve more people and expand the scope of the program, Kime said. Because the program was new and funds were limited, program participants had been limited to $250 in care per year and were to be seen for preventive health needs. Because that proved insufficient, the yearly per-person cap will now be $1,000, and people seeking care for preventive needs as well as acute and chronic conditions will have access to the vouchers. The vouchers now also provide a pharmacy benefit for prescriptions from the Vashon Pharmacy. Kime and Johnson both expressed appreciation of this program, which was well used from the start.

Golfer makes State four times, a VHS first By NATALIE JOHNSON Staff Writer

A young Vashon golfer who says he’s largely self-taught became the first Vashon High School boy to compete in the state golf tournament all four years of high school. Cole Devereau, 18, qualified for state a fourth time last month when he shot a 79 and placed seventh at the Tri District Tournament. “It was a pretty big accomplishment for me,” Devereau said. The young golfer didn’t fare quite as well at the 1A state tournament on May 21 in Spanaway. Devereau had an off day, he said, and shot a 92, not progressing to the final round of the tournament as he has in the past. “It was a pretty emotional day,” he said. “I tried. I couldn’t get it together though.” As a sophomore, Devereau shot a 78 in the state finals to place 16th of about 80 golfers. “All in all, I made it four times in a row,” he said, a feat that only one other VHS golfer, a girl in the 1990s, has accomplished. Devereau, who grew up on Vashon, golfed as a child but began playing seriously in eighth grade, when his sister began to work at Vashon’s golf club and a local golfer sponsored his membership. In high school Devereau ultimately chose golf over baseball — which are both spring sports — saying he enjoyed the individual element of golfing. He also wrestled throughout his high school career. “Golf I could practice any time. I could play any time and have fun with it,” he said. Unlike other serious golfers, Devereau has never sought help from a swing coach. He’s gotten some assistance from VHS golf

Cole Devereau has golfed since he was young. He began practicing the sport seriously in the eighth grade. coach Andy Sears, he said, and mostly taught himself by watching others. “I’ve learned by watching people take their swing and taking pointers,” he said. After graduation, Devereau said he’s likely headed to Olympic College in Bremerton, where he’ll play on the school’s golf team. He’s thought of eventually playing professionally as well.

“I plan to play as much as I can and try to make it on the pro tour any time in my life,” he said. As for Vashon, Devereau said he was happy to see how golf seemed to grow in popularity by his senior year of high school. The boys golf team has 17 players on it this spring. “People are starting to see that golf is pretty fun and it’s an easy thing to do in the spring. … A lot of people wanted to try it out,” he said.

The Vashon Youth Marksmanship Team recently competed in the American Legion National Air Rifle Postal match, which was locally sponsored by the Vashon American Legion Post #159. The American Legion match included both a team and individual competitions, with participants shooting on Vashon and competing against youth doing the same in other parts of the country. In the individual competition, a match was worth 600 points, Lauren Phillips shot a 584 to place in the top 30 of

the competition and qualified for the second round of competition. She then shot a 586 to finish fifth in the second round, which qualified her for the final round of competition. The finals will be hosted this summer at the Olympic Training Center in Colorado Springs. In the team competition, a match is worth 2,400 points. The team of Lauren Phillips, Casey Iwamoto, Owen Yeasting and Emma Carey shot a 2,302 to finish second in the first round. SEE SHOOTING, NEXT PAGE

One of Vashon sports’ biggest fans moves on This week, Vashon youth sports will lose one of its biggest fans and The Beachcomber sports page will lose one of its greatest assets, when islander Rik Forschmiedt says goodbye to Vashon. Rik and his wife are moving to Colorado. Rik has worked or volunteered for The Beachcomber in various roles for more than 20 years, acting as a sports editor, photographer and reporter, and most recently delivering photos that bring youth sports to life weekly on our pages. During his nearly 25 years on Vashon, Rik also helped coach track, cross country and soccer at Vashon High School.

SURVEY CONTINUED FROM 1

slightly above the state average, but is down compared to past years. At the same time, survey results show a significant downturn in drinking among middle schoolers. In 2006, 31 percent of eighth graders reported having at least one drink in the past 30 days. In 2008 and 2010, that number hovered around 15 percent, and last year it dropped to just 5 percent, below the state average of 12 percent. Eighth graders’ binge drinking levels were also slightly lower than the state average, with just 5 percent reporting that they’d consumed five or more drinks in a row in the last two weeks. McQuillin said VARSA members hope the dramatic results in the eighth grade mean that their efforts to reach out to children and their families and to change community attitudes around drinking and drug use are beginning to take hold. Eighth graders’ marijuana use was also down compared with two years ago and is now in line with the state average. “There’s a greater chance for us to have some influence over their behavior, by starting earlier,” McQuillin said. As VARSA works to interpret the results of the extensive survey, the coalition, which includes volunteers from several areas of the community and operates with Vashon Youth & Family Services as a fiscal sponsor, is also grappling with its own internal issues. Last month, an ongoing dispute apparently came to a head when VYFS director Kathleen Johnson asked several VARSA coalition members to resign from their positions, with an invitation to reapply if they wished. In Johnson’s letter to member Larry Kjellberg, which was attached to a reply email Kjellberg sent to Johnson and copied to a reporter at The Beachcomber as well as a long list of others, Johnson gave a few reasons for making the move, including VARSA’s failure to report in a timely manner various data required by its government grants. “Due to the ongoing leadership dispute among current leadership, we have been unable to do this,” she wrote. Johnson also cited “Poor HYS results” as a concern. “While we have some promising progress among 8th graders, we are clearly failing with 10th and 12th graders,” she wrote. In emails to Johnson, copied to The Beachcomber and others, three coalition members expressed dismay at Johnson’s decision and said they would not resign. Meri-Michael Collins and Diane Kjellberg, VARSA cochairs, both wrote that they hoped the group could work together to find a resolution.

DAYSTAR CELEBRATES

Larry Kjellberg, in his email, was highly critical of Johnson and her work at VYFS and questioned whether she had the authority to “take this action against a legally establish and elected board.” In an interview late last month, VARSA member Jim Hauser said the organization had experienced “disagreements within the board and disagreements between some members of the board and staff that weren’t resolving themselves.” Hauser, who, according to Johnson’s letter did agree to resign and then rejoin the coalition, said the group was scheduled to have mediation. “My personal opinion is internal disputes about who’s in charge and how to run things are distracting us from our mission,” Hauser said. “I don’t know what the outcome is going to be,” he added. “I think we all recognize there’s a problem and there’s probably a number of good ways to solve it.” Since then, however, several board members, Johnson and McQuillin have all declined to comment on the dispute or the mediation. On Monday, Collins issued a statement she said the coalition approved that suggested VARSA and VYFS were working together. “We are grateful for the assistance that we have received from the VYFS board and for their support in assuring our autonomy,” the statement said. “We appreciate the hard working VYFS and VARSA staff for their continued support in our efforts. Because of their long experience on Vashon, respect in the community, and collaboration with these grants and programs, VYFS has acted as VARSA’s Fiscal Agent and we look forward to a long and successful partnership.” VARSA members will say they are currently pushing forward with their work in the community, deciding how to best spend government funding funneled to Vashon to help address the island’s above-average youth substance abuse rates. The group is finishing the fourth year of a 10-year federal Drug Free Communities grant that if renewed has the potential to provide $1.25 million in funding for prevention activities over the decade. A year ago, the group got a boost when VYFS secured another grant that will provide $150,000 a year for five years for prevention work. McQuillin said the latest grant is especially significant because, unlike the Drug Free Communities one, it can be spent on school and community programs such as classes, campaigns, parent education, interventions and training. The other grant focuses on changing community attitudes and norms, he said, funding projects to address Vashon’s so-called hot spots for drug and alcohol use and to train store employees around alcohol sales. “What that (new grant) did is made Vashon a completely

one-stop shop, if you will, for prevention-type activities,” McQuillin said. Both McQuillin and Lori Means, a parent educator at Vashon Youth & Family Services and another VARSA project coordinator, say it makes sense that VARSA would see positive results in younger grades before high schoolers. For years, VYFS has been gradually growing its prevention program, which has so far reached younger children more than high schoolers. And in the survey, eighth graders also reported more positively than classes before them on some factors that put youth at risk of using, a possible sign at VARSA efforts are working, “If you start early, you have time to develop all these things you call protective factors like relationships, prosocial activities and clear family values, clear limit setting,” Means said. VARSA is now beginning to focus on a new set of curriculum for Vashon schools that uses positive messaging, proven in studies to affect youth more than negative messaging, McQuillin said. It will also work to reach out to parents more, as a higher-than-average number of Vashon teens still report their parents aren’t disapproving of alcohol and drug use, according to Healthy Youth Survey results. Unlike many other communities, Vashon has not seen low graduation rates and low student involvement that normally accompanies high substance use rates. “All (the results do) is reinforce our efforts toward parent education,” Means said. Collins, a VARSA chair, said tackling youth substance abuse isn’t easy, and especially not on Vashon, a place where people are often more influenced by friends than by large campaigns. To that end, one of VARSA’s goals is to simply grow its network of supporters in the coming years. “You’re not going to get anything done if it’s top down, especially on Vashon,” she said. “We’re going to have to come at it from a lot of different angles, and I think that’s what’s starting to happen at VARSA.”

organization. The tension between Island Landmarks and the other groups was clear on Saturday afternoon, as visitors crowded on the street just outside a fence that has surrounded the house and garden for months. Beyond the fence, a pair of patrol cars from the King County Sheriff’s Office sat outside the adjacent fruit barreling plant. A sheriff’s deputy said Island Landmarks hired two off-duty deputies to provide security that afternoon. A crew worked on painting the house, and Mary Matthews, who heads Island Landmarks, could also be seen on the property as the event unfolded. Matthews opened the site for a weeklong open house last month and originally said she would open the grounds for Saturday’s event as well. However, she later said Island Landmarks’ board changed its mind when it learned of the scope of the event. A flier the organization made available said the property would be closed for several reasons, including that work was being done on the house and that a large number of visitors may disturb nesting swallows there and be a risk for the fragile garden. “The board of Island Landmarks is saddened that prejudice — which is indeed what character-

GRANNY’S CONTINUED FROM 13

“This is a good example of how we want to move forward with the clinic,” Kime said. “Tim and I both think it is the best thing we do.” Deb Rieschl, who administers the voucher program at VYFS, voiced her appreciation of Granny’s increased contribution. “The $1,000 will enable (people) to get care they deserve and need,” she said. “I have already called several people that had been seen and said they could go back.” Looking ahead with this new policy, Kime said Granny’s will stop providing the monthly subsidy to the Franciscan system in June, the end of the Franciscan’s fiscal year. Scott Thompson, a spokesman for the Franciscans, said administrators there are pleased with the changes and noted that Franciscans

The event, called Stand Up for Mukai — This Place Matters, kicked off with a performance by Vashon’s Free Range Folk Choir and some words from Mary Matsuda Gruenwald, a former islander and Japanese-American author who knew B.D. Mukai, the farmhouse’s former owner. A lineup of government officials and nonprofit repunderstand Granny’s has been essential to ongoing care at the clinic. “We want to work with Granny’s Attic in a way that is comfortable and continues to provide for the needs of the community,” he said. Over the next few months, Franciscan and health center representatives will work out the details for what this new framework will mean, he said, and noted that continued funding from Granny’s is important. “There are a lot of needs there,” he said. “This money could support items that the Franciscans do not have money in their budget for, like technology and clinic upgrades.” As for Granny’s, their granting cycle starts in September, Kime said, and they are fully expecting the health center to apply for funding. “We’re every bit as much interested in granting to the clinic as anyone else,” she said

resentatives also took to the podium, speaking of the site’s historical significance — both on Vashon and regionally — and the need for a long-term preservation and management plan. King County Councilmember Joe McDermott compared the situation to when islanders fought Glacier Northwest’s proposed mining expansion on Maury Island. “I know this community, and I know that when you’re dedicated to finding a solution, it happens,” he

said County Executive Dow Constantine, in his speech, noted that years ago as a staffer on the county council, he helped present a giant check to Island Landmarks to help purchase the farmhouse. In an interview afterward, Constantine said county agencies have given more than $100,000 in funding to the nonprofit and he was displeased to see what’s happening there today. “To protect that investment and historical asset,

the county will look at whatever reasonable steps are available,” he said. The farmhouse had already been on his radar, but “today helped amplify it,” he said. McDermott, in an interview, said he’d been quietly working to find a solution for the historical property for about a year now. “I’m working with 4Culture and others on the county level to find every opportunity we can to be involved. I’m also very supportive of the state and community taking an

active role,” he said. The Friends of Mukai were also celebrating a small legal victory on Saturday. The group is currently appealing a King County Superior Court decision that the Friends did not lawfully carry out a takeover of Island Landmarks’ board last year. Island Landmarks’ attorney, Bob Krinsky, filed a motion on behalf of the nonprofit to affirm the previous ruling and dismiss the Friends’ appeal. Last Thursday, however, that motion was denied, meaning the appeals process will continue, with a hearing in front of a threejudge panel at the state Court of Appeals likely to be scheduled for next month. Lynn Greiner, a Friends of Mukai board member and the group’s lawyer, called the ruling “an indication that we have raised significant issues in our appeal.”

FYI COMMUNITY

Honoring the founders of Sunrise Ridge More than 55 islanders gathered on May 11 to honor Sunrise Ridge Health Services founders Dorothy Johnson and Opal Montague. For the rest of their lives, the women will enjoy five different kinds of fruit from each of the two “fruit basket� trees created by Bob Norton. 

A garden bench by Vashon artist Mike Urban now honors Leo Montague, deceased husband of Opal. Leo played a large role in supporting and enabling the success of Sunrise Ridge. The event, co-sponsored by the Sunrise Ridge Health Services (SRHS) Board and Vashon Island Fruit Club, featured a history of the former Nike site, an introduction to tenants and a questionnaire to elicit suggestions for future activities at Sunrise Ridge.  Current tenants are the clinic, Granny’s Attic thrift store, Vashon Maury Community Food Bank, Vashon Youth Baseball fields, Vashon Ham Radio Club, and Voice of Vashon. The SRHS board wel-

comes ideas for future activities on the site. Suggestions now include outdoor entertainment, picnic benches, a p-patch, a playground and a coffee/ juice vender. Mail your ideas to SRHS, P.O. Box S, Vashon.

Born 2010 Waffl es was found hanging around a home not far from the shelter. After searching for an owner, Waffles was caught and brought to the vets to be neutered. Waffles was then enrolled in the VIPP Charm school where he quickly scored high marks for friendliness and he began to coach his classmate, Nadine. They have become great friends and would be a wonderful pair together. Waffles came to VIPP 8/15/12. Born 2009 Nadine is a survivor having lived around the dump until last summer. She has had at least two litters of kittens. Last summer after catching one of her kittens, we caught her, had her spayed and enrolled her in charm school. Nadine had to have had an owner at one time because she has come around to trusting humans once again. Sheâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s still shy at first and she is great friends with another charm school class mate, Waffles. Nadine is looking for a home where she can be treated with love and care. She would do best in a quiet home with older kids or adults.

After three difficult pregnancies and an emergency C-section tiny Conchita is on the mend and ready for a new home. Conchita, about 2-1/2 years old, is a classic Chihuahua looking for a comfy lap, and preferably, a home without cats. Sheâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s able to hold her own in most situations, having lived in households with adult children and other small dogs. Conchita can be a bit shy with new friends, but her soft brown eyes, expressive ears and spunky spirit are captivating once she relaxes. Contact dogs@VIPP.org to set up an initial visit or to get the latest updates on this sweet girl. $125 adoption fee applies.
