Preparing for pot: Officials ready the rules County, island react to

spike in youth suicides

By SUSAN RIEMER Staff Writer

Proposed regulations regarding Initiative 502, which legalized marijuana use in the state, could mean that Vashon will see marijuana-related retail businesses and production facilities in the heart of downtown next year and fenced fields of marijuana around the island. Representatives from King County’s Department of Permitting and Environmental Review (DPER) and a variety of other governmental agencies hosted a public meeting last week on Vashon, seeking islanders’ feedback on DPER’s draft zoning ordinance for marijuanarelated businesses that will grow, process or sell the drug for recreational use. DPER representatives also provided information about zoning rules the agency plans to create for medical marijuana facilities, which DPER currently does not regulate. Roughly 30 people attended the meeting and expressed a variety of opinions and concerns. “This is great. I never thought this would happen,” said Kathy Flynn, an islander who spoke at the meeting. Others expressed reservations, including a woman who said she voted yes on the initiative, but lives next door to a medical marijuana dispensary and wonders what effect it might have on the value of her home, which she hopes to sell in the spring. Meri-Michael Collins, co-chair of the Vashon Alliance to Reduce Substance Abuse, noted the potential appearance of marijuana-growing facilities, slated to be located in rural and agricultural areas, as the state’s draft

As regional leaders respond to a recent spike in teen suicides in King County, calling it a serious public health issue, islanders are noting a small increase in suicides among young people on Vashon as well. “I think we feel the sensitivity of this subject in our community right now,” said Lori Means, a parent educator at Vashon Youth & Family Services (VYFS), which has provided counseling and education along with the Vashon Island School District in response to recent suicides and other deaths. “We want to make sure we’re providing the information and support that parents and community members need.” In King County, 11 children under age 18 died by suicide in 2012, nearly three times the annual average, prompting the county to examine the deaths and produce recommendations released this month for preventing future teen suicides. On Vashon, three people between ages 14 and 22 have committed suicide in the last 12 months. Officials from VYFS and the school district are currently planning programming for the newly declared Suicide Prevention Week in Washington, set for the second week in September. “We will in some way be honoring our losses, and also, at the very least, making sure parents know ... what the signs are, what they can do if they think that their child is at risk and how they can respond to their child’s grief about losses in our community,” Means said. Last October, VYFS worked with the Seattle-based Youth Suicide Prevention Program (YSPP) to provide counseling, support groups and suicide education after Palmer Burk, a well-known 14-year-old who attended Vashon High School, committed suicide. In May, 20-year-old Samantha Burkart, a 2010 VHS graduate, died by suicide, and this month a 22-year-old island man also committed suicide. Officials from Public Health – Seattle & King County say that Vashon’s suicide rate in recent years has been consistent with the county’s, but the number of recent suicides among young people is an anomaly. According to county statistics, during the 10-year period between 2002 and 2011, just one of 15 people who reportedly committed suicide on Vashon was under age 35. Annie Kirk, a violence and injury prevention specialist at the public health department, called the three recent suicides of young islanders a concern, but warned that it’s too soon to call the tragedies a trend. Since the number is still small and represents just one year, she said, it’s not an increase that county officials would consider statistically significant. “From our perspective, here at the health department, the mathematical or statistical significance answer isn’t the right way to approach the situation right now because we

Jarrod Lewis, the assistant director of permitting with DPER, fields questions at a recent public meeting about the proposed zoning for marijuana-related businesses on Vashon. A detail from DPER’s map of Vashon, below, shows areas where marijuana would be allowed to be grown, processed and sold under the proposed zoning ordinance. Pale green indicates areas it could be grown outdoors; the gray area indicates where marijuana could be grown indoors or processed; the lighter pink areas show where marijuana might be grown indoors, processed or sold by a retail business and the darker pink areas indicate where retail establishments could be located. The cross-hatched marks indicate areas that could not be used. regulations call for them to be surrounded by 8-foot barriers and be outfitted with lights and security cameras. Several in the audience advocated for allowing processing facilities to be located at growing facilities — something DPER’s draft plan does not call for. DPER will likely alter some of its proposed regulations because of the comments it received on Vashon and at other public meetings it held around the region, John Starbard, the director of DPER, said, noting that public feedback is still welcome. “We want to hear from the public on this very important matter,” he said. Most of the comments offered at meetings were well-reasoned, he added.

“People had really done their homework,” he said. “You can’t ask for more than that.” DPER’s proposed plan calls for indoor growing and processing of marijuana in areas zoned as

Activity reported around sale of K2 building, broker is quiet Rumors about a potential sale of the K2 building have been circulating on Vashon in recent weeks, but so far there is no confirmed news about possible proceedings there. The large commercial building just south of Vashon town is now listed with Cushman and Wakefield, a commercial real estate broker, but company representatives said they could not comment, though acknowledged there is some activity at the building. Dick Sontgerath, who had hoped to purchase the building in 2007 and turn it into a mixed-use facility,

then revamped his plans in 2012 to turn it into a nonprofit community center, said he, too, understands something may be in the works for the building, but said he was not familiar with the details. “I have heard about lots of activity there, but do not know about it,� he said. The K2 building, a 180,000-square-foot facility sitting on 8 acres of land, is the ski company’s former manufacturing site and has been for sale for several years. Once listed at $3 million, the property was listed at $1.5 million in 2012. —Susan Riemer

School district passes no-cuts budget in 11th hour District gives raises, dips into its reserves By NATALIE JOHNSON Staff Writer

The Vashon Island School District passed a no-cuts budget late last month, despite receiving slightly less revenue than officials had hoped from the schools foundation and the state. The district borrowed about $250,000 from its reserves to round out the $16.3 million spending plan, which avoids program cuts and includes funds to give raises to teachers and administrators and hire a few additional staff. “I think we continue to be in a very stable position financially,� said Superintendent Michael Soltman. The operating budget for

the 2013-14 school year was passed by the Vashon school board in an 11th-hour special meeting on July 31, the deadline put forward by the state for districts to finalize their budgets. Officials say the budget process was delayed this year because of gridlock in the Legislature over education funding. The district planned for a no-cuts budget before final numbers were available from the state, Soltman said, and ultimately dipped into its reserves to cover the balance. Because of the delay, detailed budget plans normally available to the school board and the public earlier in the process were not available until last Thursday’s board meeting. “We have sufficient reserves that we can make that adjustment for a year, and that’s what it’s there for,� Stolman said of using the reserve funding. “We didn’t want to go into this year cut-

ting anything.� Ultimately the state allocated about $1 billion in additional funding for education, a little over half the $1.8 billion that the state Office of the Superintendent of Public Instruction requested as a down payment to fulfill the Supreme Court’s McCleary decision, which requires the state to fully fund education by 2018. On Vashon, the school district received about $600,000 more in state funding, a third of which was designated for special education and learning assistance programs, Soltman said. It received about $275,000 in donations from the Vashon Schools Foundation, short of the nonprofit’s $350,000 goal to help this district bridge its budget gap. The other $400,000 in additional state money helped cover increases in retirement rates negotiated by the teachers’ union as well as increases in staff salaries. Teachers all received a 1.9 percent salary restoration required by the state after that amount was cut two years ago, and the union negotiated an additional 3 percent cost-of-living increase. At the administrative level, principals and vice principals in the district received raises of up to 12 percent each, a decision Soltman said he made in the process of hiring the new Vashon High School principal. In order to attract a strong candidate for the job, Soltman said, the district decided to up the position’s salary to align with that of high school principals at comparable school districts around the region, such as Bellevue, Seattle,

Snoqualmie and Tukwila. Danny Rock, who was hired as the new VHS principal, is budgeted to earn $116,327 this year, about an 11 percent increase over the outgoing principal’s salary last year. Soltman said it was only fair to also increase other principal and vice principal salaries to align closer to regional averages. The elementary and middle school principals are each budgeted to earn $107,529 this year after salary increases of about 12 and 11 percent, respectively. Stolman said he didn’t expect the move would be controversial. “Over time, the principals’ salaries had been ignored for so many years that they fell way behind,� Soltman said. “I think anybody that took the time to really understand the situation felt that it was an important and appropriate move to make.� This year’s budget also included funds to hire one additional teacher needed at the elementary school and one at the high school, where the added position will help cover class changes resulting from the transition from semesters to trimesters. This year the district also restored the assistant principal position at the elementary school, which was cut in 2009. The vice principal will be especially needed this year, Soltman said, as the district works to complete time-consuming teacher evaluations now required by the state. “That (position) was the first thing we cut ... when the recession began,� Soltman said. “We’ve been struggling along without it for the past three years.�

Wolftown shrinks its animal rescue program With donations down, nonprofit will no longer take in most mammals By SARAH SCHWARZ For The Beachcomber

After about seven years providing animal rescue on Vashon, Wolftown is now only rehabilitating birds of prey and wolves. T Yamamoto, who runs the nonprofit with her husband Pete, said donations to the organization have been down since 2008, and there are no longer funds to support the rescues of marine and land mammals. “Pete and I have been dipping into our savings since the recession hit in 2008,” she said. “We can no longer do that.” Wolftown is not supported by the state or federal government, Yamamoto added, which makes community donations crucial. “Without community support, it won’t exist,” she said. “Slowly parts of the program have disappeared.” Yamamoto is certified to do rescue and triage, or emergency care, on marine mammals and land animals and is a certified falconer. These qualifications are not easy to obtain, and require up to seven years of training, depending on the species, she said. In order to rescue marine mammals, she said, one must also gain the trust of the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration and biologists in the area because anyone must get approval from them in order to handle the injured or stranded animals.

“It would be very difficult for someone to replicate what I have done for this island, for wildlife and for youth,” said Yamamoto. Wolftown was founded as a multifaceted organization, but has shrunk in recent years as the Yamamotos have been forced to make cuts. In addition to animal rescue and rehabilitation, the nonprofit does education, offers a land clearing service and is a source for sustainably grown, grass fed lamb. Education used to take place through tours of the property and the animals living there. But due to the lack of funds, Yamamoto and her husband have both taken day jobs seven days a week, and cannot provide tours, she said, and have also made cuts to their internship program. Wolftown also had a role in disease prevention on the island, in that those who do rescue and rehab “are the first ones to see outbreaks,” she said. Islander Ann Stateler, who runs the Vashon Hydrophone Project and is known by many as Orca Annie, will take over marine mammal transport on Vashon. However, she is not certified to do rescue or triage, so she’ll transport sick or injured mammals off-island. Before the transition, Wolftown was getting calls about mammals at least once a day, and those calls are now directed to Stateler. Both Yamamoto and Stateler stressed that not all calls result in their intervention — most concerns can be handled over the phone. However, without Wolftown at the ready to rescue mammals, Yamamoto said it will be more important than ever that islanders and visitors to Vashon fol-

low simple rules related to marine mammals, such as steering clear of baby seals on the beach, which can sometimes seem stranded when they aren’t. Seals will not come onto the beach to feed their pups if humans are too close, Stateler said. When in stress, seals burn more calories, so it is even more crucial that the mothers be able to feed them. Stateler also noted that this is a molting season for many seals, which often causes them to look diseased or hurt, when they are actually healthy. “Molting is really a painful process for the elephant seals, so we really need to leave them alone,” said Stateler. Yamamoto said she hoped to someday resume the rescues, but only with substantial community support. To do so, the community would need to purchase the piece of property Wolftown sits on and raise enough funds to provide them a salary as well. “We need to have something to fall back on,” Yamamoto said. Until then, Wolftown will continue to care for the wolves, fox, owls and falcons that already live there. YamLamb Sheep Co. will continue to provide eco-friendly land clearing services and donate grass-fed lamb to the food bank and soup kitchens. The lamb can also be purchased at Minglement and the Farmers Market, and all the proceeds go toward project management. “People only seem to support the project when they want entertainment or have an emergency,” Yamamoto said. “I am very sad to see this go. I am very sad that the community didn’t support it.”

County to present updated flood maps for Vashon New preliminary flood insurance rate maps for Vashon Island developed by the Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA) will be presented at a public meeting at 6 p.m. tonight at the Vashon Park District offices at Ober Park. The King County Flood Control District and King County are hosting the meeting so Vashon residents can view the 2013 preliminary maps and hear about the mapping and study process. King County staff will also be available to answer questions. In recent years, King County performed a thorough study of Vashon’s shoreline flooding risks as part of a larger effort to update flood maps across the county. Using satellite imagery and information about land elevations, high tides and wind speed, the county was able to map flood hazard zones on the approximately 1,500 parcels that line the shores of Vashon and Maury islands. The preliminary maps for Vashon are even more detailed than draft ones presented in 2011 and include revised flood hazard areas, which could affect flood insurance rates. The preliminary maps, which are also available online at www.kingcounty.gov/ floodservices, are based on the most current data and technical analyses to estimate the extent of coastal flooding. FEMA has reviewed and generated the flood insurance rate maps, which illustrate the extent of flooding during a 1 percent chance flood — commonly referred to as the 100-year flood event. For more information, contact King County’s River and Floodplain Management Section at 296-8001.

Tips for maintaining a healthy smile

with Dr. Langland Vashon Island Dental

Did you know?

Only 7% of the population flosses regularly. We get it, flossing hurts, it’s gross and who has the time? Flossing has always been the best way to clean between the teeth but if compliance is at 7% then it is important to consider alternatives. The main objective to cleaning between the teeth is to disrupt the bacterial activity between the teeth. When bacteria are left undisturbed, they are able to reproduce faster and concentrate acid which leads to decay. Using toothpicks, small brushes or a water pick also disrupts these bacterial colonies and are effective when used regularly. Also, if you are in that 93 percent, then limiting your refined carbohydrate intake will help to starve out the bacteria between the teeth.

Marijuana legalization: Help chart the course

Organized rides often hold surprises of their own

Last fall, nearly three quarters of island voters approved Initiative 502, the measure that legalized marijuana in the state. On liberal Vashon, we weren’t too surprised at the high margin. However, now that the state and county are considering what the legal sale of marijuana will look like in Washington, we wonder how many islanders who checked yes last year imagined a marijuana shop opening at a storefront in town or fields of the plant growing next door to their homes. Under recently proposed regulations, marijuana could have a significant presence on the island. In fact, some have suggested that Vashon and other parts of unincorporated King County will be ideal for establishing marijuana growing operations because of their large swaths of land zoned as agricultural. A new map shows that most parts of the island would be eligible to hold businesses or growing operations. What’s more, the Washington State Liquor Control Board has suggested that to avoid a marijuana black market, it would like new businesses to be accessible across the state. This could mean that if no businesses open on the island, the state may step in and assign someone interested in opening a business do so on Vashon rather than somewhere else. We have concerns about what such a presence of drugs — albeit legalized drugs — could have on Vashon, an island many live on for its small-town, set-apart feel and a place that also benefits from its tourist appeal. Our youth already use controlled substances, including marijuana, at rates higher than the state average, a trend volunteers have been working for years to combat. We wonder what highly visible marijuana businesses could mean for youth access to pot or the reported perception among many youth that drug use is acceptable. Vashon isn’t the only community struggling with these questions. Towns across the state will undoubtedly see marijuana’s legalization impact their commercial areas and neighborhoods. But we still have some control over how this law will play out. The county’s permitting department is already revising its recommendations based on public comments it received earlier this month, as is the state liquor control board, and both are still taking comments. While public comment periods can sometimes seem like formalities that make little difference in the end, this time it seems that officials are truly listening. In this uncharted territory, they want to implement rules that residents can support and that will actually work — avoiding potential difficulties that could occur if new rules are pushed through without careful thought. Read this week’s front-page story on how proposed regulations could play out on Vashon, and for more information, see the websites of the state liquor control board and the county’s Department of Permitting and Review. It’s possible that marijuana business could operate without issue in our community. But we also suspect that not everyone who approved the legalization marijuana will be happy with the proposed regulations. Perhaps the state and county could make some adjustments that would minimize the new businesses that would crop up here. In uncharted territory, those who speak up, it seems, are helping chart the course.

After a long day in the saddle, I like to indulge myself in a favorite post-bike ride activity. I put myself in the capable hands of Karina or Joe, my favorite bartenders, and reminisce about my journey. The longer I sit there, the more impressive my ride was, and if I sit long enough, I become incredibly handsome and a fantastic dancer. Recently, I sipped a pint of Cliff’s latest creation, and I felt a stab of melancholy realizing that summer was on the wane. So grabbing some napkins, I penned my last cycling article. Hopefully you have put the best weather in the country to good use and cycled around our beautiful island. Now, with your legs tempered on the hills of Vashon, you may be looking for something beyond a casual ride. For many folks this means an organized bicycle ride. For a small entrance fee, you can get a trip through some of the most scenic roads in the area, refreshment stops for food and drinks and a vehicle to pick you up if need be. While these rides are easy to find on the web, I would be remiss if I didn’t mention Vashon’s own Passport to Pain (P2P), a September hill climbing fest on Vashon. Riding the short, medium or long route will give you gloating rights for an entire year. Plus the entry fee helps out Vashon Island Rowing Club and the Vashon Maury Community Food Bank. An organized ride always has a few riders that take it too seriously, but most everyone else is out for a fun time, and some are decidedly on the unconventional side. For instance, I remember this year in the Seattle Brews Cruise a woman who cycled 30 miles in high heels and a flower-print skirt. During the Flying Wheels Century ride, a man biked 100 miles wearing Viking horns, (maybe that’s what Vikings do in the plundering off-season).

LETTER TO THE EDITOR Careful chemical use is necessary for park restoration Farmers Market

Produce stand raises questions The Vashon Island Growers Association (VIGA) states that its mission is to “promote and advance agriculture on Vashon Island through education and the Farmers Market.� If that is so, then the collusion between the VIGA Board and East-West Produce would seem contradictory. East-West Produce sets up across from the space that houses the market the day before it is held, as well as the day of the market, two hours before it opens. East-West Produce not only sells fruits from Eastern Washington that are not readily available on-island, it imports vegetables that can be found directly across the street, grown and sold by our island farmers. The proprietor, Bernie O’Malley, routinely sets his prices lower than those at the market, therefore undercutting local farmers, who cannot afford to compete. The one tip of the hat he gives to our island growers is a clause on his signage stating he buys from them “when available.� While he may sell some island-grown produce, it is clearly the case that all of the vegetables he imports from Eastern Washington are available locally, in abundance. If East-West Produce claims to be a champion of Washington farmers, then it is hypocritical to challenge our local farmers’ livelihoods in this way. In light of all of this, it is extremely unsettling that the owner of East-West Produce sits on the board of VIGA. This is a clear conflict of interest and runs directly counter to VIGA’s stated mission. I think the just and appropriate thing to do would be for Mr. O’Malley to step down from the VIGA board, and further, for him to stop importing produce that can be found locally. Let’s take advantage of this opportunity to start a discussion of what true community supported agriculture looks like and how we can encourage our thriving local farming community. — Rachel Fesler-Schnitzer

I would like to respond to Frank Jackson’s commentary from the Aug. 13 Beachcomber, “Herbicide use at park causes concern.� Maury Island Marine Park presents a unique opportunity to restore and preserve one of the largest publicly owned stretches of shoreline in central Puget Sound. The site is virtually unparalleled for its potential recreational opportunities, including access to Puget Sound, hiking and wildlife viewing and for its ecological benefits. However, the land has been tremendously affected by historic mining use and subsequent infestation from invasive plant species. Monocultures of blackberries and Scotch broom significantly impact the valuable environmental benefits of a protected shoreline. We cannot ignore the degraded nature of Maury Island Marine Park’s landscape, most notably the invasive plant species that blanket much of this site’s uplands. Without a coordinated and thorough approach to addressing these invasive plants, we could lose its environmental benefits. King County Parks has been given the opportunity to restore the site through a grant from Puget Sound

ENVIRONMENT By CHRISTIE TRUE Corps – Special Obligation Bond Jobs Package and partnered with the Washington Department of Natural Resources (WDNR). King County and its partners are committed to restoring the environmental health of this park, and we are in the midst of a major habitat restoration project, with the help of the WDNR and Puget Sound Corps. Beginning last fall and continuing into this year, Puget Sound Corps crews have spent more than 12,000 hours digging and chopping more than three dozen acres of invasive Himalayan blackberries and Scotch broom from the marine park’s uplands. These crews have also planted more than 63,000 trees and shrubs on the site, and added mulch to build nutrients in the soil. The restoration actions at Maury Island Marine Park

Please Recycle Your Beachcomber

have been guided through an integrated pest management (IPM) plan that was developed specifically for this site. An important component of the IPM plan is the limited use of appropriate herbicides. We simply cannot restore this site without some herbicide use on invasives. Scotch broom and Himalayan blackberries are extremely hardy and virtually impossible to effectively manage without herbicides, so as part of our IPM plan, we are using the herbicide Garlon 3A (triclopyr) on invasive plants. We use the lowest recommended concentration of herbicide, and we have limited its application to selected areas. King County Parks made a presentation to the Vashon Island Groundwater Committee regarding this restoration work, including our plans for limited herbicide application. In an effort to keep the

committee informed, we have offered to collect and share information from soil and water samples to test for herbicide residues. We are also committed to providing ample public notification as to when and where this herbicide is applied. Informational signs about the herbicide use have been posted at both the parking area and viewing platform at the site. King County will continue to be sound stewards of this tremendous resource, and we will maintain an open dialogue with all interested citizens and groups on how to best restore this degraded landscape so that Maury Island Marine Park will benefit fish and wildlife, as well as people. — Christie True is the director of the King County Department of Natural Resources and Parks and a Vashon resident.

Islander to participate in cancer walk This year marks the 30th anniversary of islander Kathleen Gilligan’s 94-year-old grandmother surviving cancer. Gilligan will participate in Seattle’s Susan G. Komen 3-Day walk in her memory Sept. 20 to 22. Her daughter, Garnet Burk, will volunteer at the event’s closing ceremonies. “My grandmother survived 30 years ago, and my mom lost her best friend to breast cancer,” Gilligan said. “I have too many friends who have had it.” Gilligan will carry the “my neighbor” flag in the opening ceremony. She said she will carry this flag in memory of her mother’s best friend and neighbor who died from breast cancer, as well as her two neighbors who have survived it. Gilligan’s focus is on those who have battled the cancer, but there is a personal element for her as well. “After I lost my son Palmer, I found myself walking constantly,” Gilligan said. “I decided to take all that walking and channel it into something.” The 3-Day provides participants with training schedules before the walk. Gilligan’s 16-week training schedule has her walking about 12 to 16 miles each weekend day at this point, she said. She

Meet our Happiness Heroes

Islander and Seattle theatre veteran Maria Glanz will return to the Open Space for Arts & Community with her popular and newly expanded one-woman show‚ “See Me Naked.” The performance, directed by Elizabeth Klob, will be at 8 p.m. Saturday at the Open Space. “This is a rare show. It combines all of the elements I love in theater,” Klob said. “‘See Me Naked’ tells a story, reveals something personal about the performer and engages the audience in an authentic way.” “See Me Naked” is an interactive comedy that explores personal boundaries and feelings relating to being naked, both literally and symbolically. Following a striptease fail, an embarrassed amateur opens up to her audience about why exposing herself publicly is so difficult and so important for her to do. The show starts as a comic monologue, but soon becomes a dialogue when she begins to question members of the audience about their own feelings regarding nudity. Organizers said the real heart of the show is how easily audiences contribute their own, often embarrassing, experiences, making every performance unique. “‘See Me Naked’ is more than a comic one-woman show,” said a reviewer for Crosscut.com. “It is a delightfully schizophrenic stream-of-consciousness ramble through the evolution of Glanz’s body image from childhood to the present day, coupled with an interactive dialogue with the audience about their private experiences with their bare skin.” “See Me Naked” has won numerous awards since Glanz’s debut over a decade ago, including Artistic Pick of the 2001 Seattle Fringe Festival. After a strong Seattle run in early 2012 and a successful Kickstarter campaign that spring, Glanz dove back into the show, rewriting and expanding the text. Drummer Julian Zurdo joined the effort, and the show re-debuted in March. Tickets, $15, are available at the Vashon Bookshop, www.brownpapertickets.com and at the door. Doors open at 6 p.m. for those who wish to come early and enjoy pizza provided by La Biondo Wood-Fired Pizza.

BEST BETS THIS WEEK Live music at a new nightclub scene

Two poets read at the Vashon Bookshop

Club O‚ a regular nightclub event at the Open Space for Arts & Community‚ will feature live music for the first time when Thick as Thieves plays at 9:30 p.m. tomorrow. The Los Angeles-based band that formed in 2009 lists influences such as Tupac, Creedence Clearwater Revival and Fleetwood Mac. The band’s manager is Zach Mann, who grew up on Vashon and now lives in Los Angeles, where he also works as a film producer. Local musician Kiki Means will open the all-ages event. Admission is $10 to Club O, but no one will be turned away for lack of funds.

Poetry fans are in for a treat this Friday, when the Vashon Bookshop will host two poetry readings. Ann Spiers and Marci Ameluxen will both read from their latest books at 6 p.m. Spiers, a well-known Vashon poet and poetry workshop leader was named Vashon Poet Laureate for 2011-2013 by the organizing committee of Vashon Poetry Fest. On Friday she’ll read from her seventh and latest volume of poetry, “Bunker Trail.” The chapbook describes life in a cabin in the waterfront community, where the sea and nature are ever present. “This cycle of poems reveres the power of wave and wind, respects the incessant wear of daily tides,” wrote one reviewier. “Spiers

shares a life of the Sound rather than on the Sound.” Sharing the evening, Ameluxen, a poet who has lived most her life on islands and currently lives on Whidbey, will read from her new book, “Lean House.” According to the cover, the book “interrogates the relationships in a woman’s life, especially between mother and daughter, and the way these connections ravel and unravel one’s sense of being.”

Outdoor concerts wrap up with a Latin beat Vashon’s summer outdoor concert series will come to a close with flare tomorrow, when the Latin band Picoso plays at 7 p.m. at Ober Park. Picoso will play Afro-Latin sounds of the Caribbean, from Cuban son and cha cha to reggae and salsa. “They are not afraid to stretch beyond what is comfortably known as Latin or world music,” said series organizer Pete Welch. “The vibe is very urban and hip, without losing the relationship to the ancestor sound.”

A classic musical under the stars Pack up your lawn chairs and blankets to watch a classic movie under the stars. The Vashon Film Society, which shows monthly free films at the Vashon Theatre, has chosen “Mary Poppins” for its annual Outdoor Movie Night Aug. 24. The movie will be projected onto the side of the large theater building. Viewers are invited to bring low-back chairs and blankets and to set up early in the theater’s parking lot to enjoy a lookalike parade with prizes, pre-show music and shorts before the feature. The award-winning musical will play at dusk, and the Vashon Theatre concession stand will sell popcorn and treats before the show. The movie is free, and come prepared to sing along. Brazilian and Afro-Cuban sounds of Caetano Veloso and Mongo Santamaria. With trumpet, sax, percussion, guitars, keyboards and vocals, the band has taken its show on the road to such venues as Seattle Triple’s Door, Nectar Lounge, the Tractor Tavern and ACT Theatre. “You’ll be in for a treat when you see Cordaviva,” music blogger Lindsay Scully wrote in a recent review for SSG Music. “Blending soukous, Afrobeat and reggae gives them an unexpected edge in the local world music scene and completely sets them apart.”

Eclectic band will fill Nirvana with sound A rowdy alternative band will play Saturday night at what Vashon Events organizer Pete Welch is calling “Vashon’s hottest new music venue.” The Wages of Sin will play a mix of Celtic, country, punk rockabilly and blues at 9 p.m. Saturday at Nirvana. “Alternately rowdy and mournful, they’re sure to get your feet tapping, your heart palpitating, and your liver crying for mercy,” Welch said.

Masters rowers take gold at world competition in Italy One islander wins medals in several different boats By JEFF HOYT For The Beachcomber

Vashon islanders Jim O’Brien and Steve Haworth had a fruitful world rowing championship regatta at the quadrennial World Masters Games near Turin, Italy, Aug. 7 through 11. Led by O’Brien’s one gold and two silver medals at the games, the two teamed up with Canadians Julian Payne and Larry Chung to take the world title in the 60 to 64 men’s quad (four rowers and eight oars). O’Brien’s other world gold came in the 65- to 69-year-old men’s eight, with fellow Americans from the Kent Mitchell Rowing Club. O’Brien also got silver in the 60 to 64 eight, again with Kent Mitchell RC, and in the 55 to 59 pair with Canadian partner Ilhan Akgul. O’Brien, Haworth and their Canadian boatmates advanced to the finals in the

quad after narrowly winning their 1,000meter heat in 3 minutes and 31 seconds. In a tightly contested final, the VashonCanada composite boat moved on their two top Australian competitors with a strong push at about 500 meters. Another burst at 250 meters powered them to a tight half-length win in 3 minutes and 25 seconds. The quadrennial World Masters Games pit top masters athletes (older than 27) from 80 countries in world championship competition in 20 sports. Anyone can enter the tournament, and in rowing, ages of rowers in a boat are averaged for placement. The 2017 games will be in Auckland, New Zealand. Haworth called winning gold at the world games “the most satisfying athletic experience of my life.� “O’Brien is an incredible athlete who simply willed us past those huge Aussies,� he said. — Jeff Hoyt is a member of the Vashon Island Rowing Club.

Hit Me In, a co-ed softball team on Vashon, placed third at a tournament in Long Beach.

Hit Me In, a co-ed softball team from Vashon, proved it could stand up to regional competition when they placed third in the Beach Blast Tournament Aug. 10 and 11 in Long Beach, Wash. The team, coached by Shane Willits and managed by Holly Lotz, went three for two at the tournament. They narrowly lost their third game to Porterouse by one run. The final score, 12-11, put them in third place that weekend. “We had a great time camping and playing new teams,� Willits said. “There are a lot of really great softball players on Vashon.� Willits and Sheila Algeo-Davis were named All Tournament players for the Vashon team by having the highest male and

female batting averages. Willits said he was proud that Hit Me In finished third, especially since it was their first tournament as a team. He said players were already planning to enter more regional tournaments held by the United States Specialty Sports Association, which sponsored the event, and hoped to return to Long Beach next year. “It's great to see everyone play off the island,� he said. Hit Me In players include Kyle Walsh, Kelly Costello, Jeremy Stone, Ashlee Lotz, Marcus Ento, Clay Eastly, Alfonso Murano, Wendi Taylor, Sheila Algeo-Davis and Cory Kilpatrick. 17th Annual

as well. “The general feeling is if the state regulates it well, the feds will give us some room,” he said. “But there is no certainty about that.” The liquor board’s Smith confirmed the lack of certainty. The Department of Justice is likely looking at the controls Washington and Colorado are placing in their rules, Smith said, but federal officials have not  said they won’t intervene even if the controls are adequate. “They have said that marijuana remains a controlled substance under federal law and that they are reviewing Washington and Colorado’s systems,” Smith said in a recent email. The law requires that the state must have its rules in place by Dec. 1, and the agency is on track to meet that deadline, Smith said. A 30-day window to apply for marijuana business licenses will open in November, and because so many applicants are expected, Smith said, it will likely be at least 90 days before state licenses are issued. To contact the county about zoning issues, email DPERCannabisFeedback@kingcounty.gov.

can’t give that answer,” she said. “Our primary concern right now would be family and friends and others in the community, making sure they connect to resources that the county has to offer.” While last year’s 11 teen suicides in King County was nearly three times the average and the highest number since 1999, when there were seven, Kirk said that number also doesn’t signal a trend. “We have to really compare data over time. There’s always fluctuation when it comes to any types of death or serious injury,” she said. Even so, the county recently convened its Child Death Review (CDR) Committee, a group of 27 experts representing multiple agencies, to examine six of the 2012 suicides as well as suicide data from previous years. While the committee, which also reviews other child deaths each year, found no link among the suicides, Kirk said, it released a list of recommendations it believes will help prevent future teen suicides. The county is already working with local school districts and social service agencies to implement some of the recommendations, Kirk said, including increasing public awareness about suicide and its warning signs, educating families about safe firearm storage and assuring medical and mental health care providers are trained to screen for suicide risk factors. The committee also recommended strong

Burnace Sparks Burnace Sparks passed away the morning of August 10 in Weaverville, CA. She was born in Corpus Christi, TX, but moved to California at a young age. She graduated from Branham HS in 1968 and joined the work force as a sales rep. She worked in optical pharmaceuticals for many years and then in computer hardware sales. Burnie was the consummate road warrior, and was fierce, trendy and glamorous. In Jan 1989, she married William Sparks and in the same month, they left the Silicon Valley and moved to Vashon Island to experience the more relaxed lifestyle of the Northwest. They embraced ‘Island Time’ and loved the community and their property on Young’s Corner. Burnie created a large garden, growing a great variety of organic vegetables, as well as flowers for the table. She was instrumental in the establishment of a Saturday Market in uptown Vashon, and loved supporting local artisans and fellow growers. In 1998, Burnie and Bill returned to CA, eventually settling in Hayfork. Burnie is survived by her husband William, her daughter Andrea (Songer) Greer, her step sons Jon Sparks and Matt Sparks (Mikki); her granddaughters Teigue and Tia, grandsons Jack and Owen, and her great granddaughter Vivian. Also surviving is her father Denny Cinelli (Laurie); her sisters Ronnie Tharpe (Lex) and Rachel Burnett (of Vashon); her brother Chris Cinelli (Mindy); and multiple nieces and nephews. Burnie was pre-deceased by her mother Nina, and her brother Wicker. A memorial service will be held at the Trinity Alps Funeral Home in Weaverville, CA on Sunday Sept 1, at 11:00 am. Please visit her guest page at www.trinityalpsfuneralhome.com

The Vashon responses were all close to state statistics for 2012. Karyn Brownson, who heads training at YSPP and worked with the school district after Burk’s death last fall, called the three youth suicides on Vashon a concern but also stressed that it wasn’t a necessarily a trend or specific to the island. Statewide, suicide is the second leading cause of death among people ages 15 to 24. “Vashon is not alone in experiencing suicides,” she said. “This is something that communities all across Washington have been facing, and every suicide is unique.” She emphasized that most suicide victims exhibit warning signs, even young people, and said she encourages people to familiarize themselves with the signs and risk factors and not be afraid to approach those they’re concerned about. “The community can move forward from this by trying to be a suicide safer community,” she said.

KENNETH H. BAKER Kenneth Harold Baker, 83, passed away peacefully with family and friends present on July 28th, 2013. Ken was born in Sacramento, CA, on February 3rd, 1930 to Harold & Alice Baker. He is survived by his son, Mathew W. Baker, daughter Colene D. Baker and Colene’s children, Nicole & Katrina. Ken was married to Barbara J. Baker for 26 years. Ken & Barbara raised their family in Tigard, OR, and moved to Seattle in 1977. Although they divorced in 1983, Ken never re-married. Ken always said that his family years, with kids, friends, camping, waterskiing, and fishing, – were the best years of his life. He loved Jazz music, he loved his work and his top sport was hunting deer and elk with his son and friends. Ken studied business at Portland State University while working for Lipmann & Wolfe retail department stores. This was the beginning of his career in the fashion industry which he pursued for 60 years in retailing and wholesaling. He was a member of the Pacific Northwest Men’s Apparel Club for decades, serving on its board and was President in 1972. Ken absolutely loved the industry, people and his profession. Many of Ken’s lifelong friendships were within the “Garmento” industry. He was widely recognized by his employers, customers and peers as one of the best in the industry. Around 1983, Ken moved to Maury Island, on Quartermaster Harbor, where he lived for 30 years. He remained very active and connected, working, entertaining friends, hunting and waterskiing into his 70s. As told by his many friends, Ken’s personal code of conduct and how he treated people was a model for all to follow. He was masterful with jokes and story-telling. He was known for “Bakerisms”. He had a unique and infectious laugh. Ken’s greeting was geniune and his presence was charismatic. Ken had a fantastic life! His feet never stopped moving! He loved his family and his friends! We are having a “wake” style memorial at his home on Vashon Island on Saturday, August 24th from 12 – 4 p.m. Email KennyBWake@comcast.net if you knew Ken and would like to attend. We will send an Evite. Car pooling is highly recommended. Skip the tie and slacks for shorts & sandles. Bring a coat or a sweatshirt. And remember…”thirst-things first”.

Former students to honor well-loved teacher By all accounts, for the nearly 20 years Amy Dubin was an art teacher at the Vashon Island School Distict, she changed students’ lives. Dubin — as her students called her — died Aug. 1 after a battle with brain cancer, and former students have stepped forward to host a memorial service for her this weekend. It will take place in the art room at Vashon High School, the most logical place, according to Tess Staadecker, who organized the event and was Dubin’s student for six years before graduating in 2003. “It’s where she touched us,” Staadecker said. “It’s

Amy Dubin where the energy and soul is.” Speaking about Dubin as a teacher, Staadecker said she nurtured the artist in her students, but that students felt her influence in

many areas of their lives. Many former students have told Staadecker that Dubin changed the direction of their lives — and sometimes saved lives. “A lot of what she did was give us space to be creative and express ourselves,” Staadecker said. Susan Hanson, the former principal at the high school, also had high praise for Dubin. “She was an amazing teacher, an exceptional teacher,” she said. “What I loved about her most is that she could really see the potential in each of her students.” Hanson noted that her

son took classes from Dubin and that she still has some of the artwork he created during that time. Dubin’s classes often filled beyond capacity, Hanson recalled, and eventually she stepped in as the gatekeeper, keeping a waiting list because Dubin would not turn students away. “She was a wonderful artist,” Staadecker said. “And that was just the beginning of who she was.” The memorial service will take place from 11 a.m. to noon Saturday at the Vashon High School art room.

DEATH Gertrude Cormier Gertrude Cormier, born on Sept. 21, 1925, in Germany, died July 30, 2013, at Queen Anne Manor in Seattle, Wash.

WARNING Shellfish sicken many A saltwater bacteria, Vibrio parahaemolyticus, has sickened more than twice the number of people in King County this summer than typically is reported during this period, leading health officials to warn of the dangers of eating raw or undercooked shellfish. Symptoms can include diarrhea, vomiting, fever, chills and headache. Cooking shellfish until the shells just open is not enough to kill Vibrio bacteria, experts say, and recommend that shellfish be cooked to an internal temperature of 145 degrees for at least 15 seconds.

Born April 2013, LOLA and BO are sisters and BFF. They were separated from their mom too early at 4 weeks and subsequently rescued by a former VIPP volunteer who got them to VIPP. They were both sick for several weeks but over time they got better and better. Lola still has a condition called mega esophagus which is very rare in cats. It is likely that she will get over this condition as she grows. For now, Lola needs to be on a soft diet and her sister likes the same food. Lola also gets a liquid medication twice a day. Since it is chicken flavored, it goes down the hatch easily. These two are great buddies and run and play and sleep together. They need a home where they can be indoors exclusively at least until Lola’s condition resolves itself completely.

Born 2006 GOOSE is an independent kitty, but he can also be very affectionate. He likes to snuggle at nighttime. He is a pretty skittish kitty and tends to be quite jumpy. When he was a kitten, he had a dog, and they used to wrestle and play. As an adult cat, he is more shy but does warm up to dogs over time. He currently has two kitty roommates, and they have all lived together for the last year. It was an adjustment, but they have done well. He also really loves to eat and will try to convince you he is hungry around the clock!
