Vashon to get new ferry, new schedule Some are concerned about the state’s plan By NATALIE JOHNSON Staff Writer

A state plan to change the northend ferry schedule for the first time in 10 years is already raising concerns on Vashon. Washington State Ferries recently announced plans to add a larger ferry to the north-end triangle route next fall and at the same time eliminate some runs throughout the day, allowing for more time between sailings. The new boat configuration and sailing schedule, officials

say, will allow the ferries to carry the same number of cars throughout the day while more easily keeping to the schedule on a route that has become known for frequently falling behind. The state will hold a community meeting on the island next month to explain the coming changes and gather feedback and will likely present a draft schedule for public comment late this year or in early 2014. “We want a schedule that is resilient, reliable and realistic, whereas right now it is really fragile. ... Somethign needs to be done,” said Benjamin Smith, WSF’s service planning manager who has spent

months working on the state plan. Vashon’s ferry service advocates, however, say they believe a new schedule could cause longer lines at the docks and longer waits for commuters. “With this schedule proposal, ontime performance might be better, but it will be at the expense of it taking longer for people to make their commutes,” said Jan Stephens, a former member of Vashon’s Ferry Advisory Committee (FAC). Stephens was appointed by the state to a committee to provide feedback on the plan earlier this year. SEE FERRIES, 13

FAMILY FUN TO KICK OFF A ‘KNIGHT’ OF ART On Saturday an empty lot across the street from the Blue Heron will transform into a Renaissance scene complete with jugglers, musicians, artisans and costumed characters. Kicking off the second day of Vashon Allied Arts’ annual art auction — the year themed “A Knight With the Arts” — the free and family-friendly Renaissance Faire will offer crafts, activities and entertainment for all ages. And organizer Nancy Sipple is praying for clear skies. “It just can’t rain,” Sipple said with a smile last week as she worked to paint a life-size knight cutout with a hole where visitors can put their own faces for photos this weekend. She and other volunteers have been working in earnest to complete elaborate decorations and period costumes for the fair, the first-ever children’s event to accompany VAA’s popular two-day auction. Sipple, the auction’s co-chair, noted that about half the funds raised at the VAA auction go to support scholarships for children, yet activities kids them have been noticeably absent from the annual festivities. “It’s time we start bringing some younger families to the Blue Heron because in a few years they will be the people supporting it,” she said. The Renaissance Faire will take place from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. For more on the auction, see page 11. Photo and story by Natalie Johnson

With the biggest change of federal health care reform slated to begin next week, more than 30 islanders are learning to assist Vashon residents with the new health insurance enrollment process. As part of a King County effort to enroll 180,000 people in the health insurance program created through the Affordable Care Act, 32 island volunteers recently participated in an all-day training session, led by Public Health - Seattle & King County. In the coming weeks, the volunteers, called “in-person assisters,” will host an informational forum, provide education and outreach, enroll Vashon residents in new plans and help them determine if they are eligible for tax credits or subsidies to help lower the cost of their coverage. County representatives will also host enrollment sessions on Vashon in the coming months. Some of Vashon’s volunteers will attend these events and observe

as part of their learning process, said islander Hilary Emmer, the main organizer behind the volunteer effort. Once they have passed a test and a background check, signed a confidentiality agreement and are fully qualified, the “assisters” will host events of their own to reach as many people as possible. “Our goal is to sign up 1,000 people,” Emmer said. The volunteer assistants — some of whom represent island agencies and groups — are passionate about seeing people become insured and have access to health care, Emmer said. One of the first public events, slated for Oct. 8, will feature Callista Kennedy of Public Health - Seattle & King County. Kennedy will discuss the importance of enrolling in an insurance plan through Washington’s new health care exchange. She will also field audience questions. “Everyone has questions,” Emmer added. Later that week, assisters will be at the fire department’s open house, helping people enroll on Oct. 12.

Bus drivers reach agreement in wage dispute Investigation completed following vote On Monday Vashon’s school bus drivers reached a preliminary contract agreement with their employer, First Student, effectively ending a months-long labor dispute when the company offered what a union representative called fair wages for the Vashon drivers. The group is expected to ratify the contract next week. The move came just days after the drivers, part of the Teamsters Local Union No. 763, voted to authorize a future strike if First Student refused to negotiate higher wages, said Jason Powell, the union’s business agent. “I think the drivers’ solidarity, combined with some continued pressure, I believe, from the community, encouraged the company to make the right decision at the bargaining table,� Powell said. Powell, along with three Vashon drivers involved in the negotiations, have recommended the proposed settlement to the union, Powell said, and the 14 drivers are expected to ratify the contract at a meeting next Wednesday. The bus drivers’ unhappiness with First Student, the country’s largest provider of bus service and the company that holds the Vashon School District’s contract, came to light last month when drivers in downtown Vashon handed out fliers headed with the title “Labor dispute could impact student transportation.� The drivers claimed their wages were not equal to those of First Student driv-

ers in other parts of the state. They also claimed there were wage inequities among the Vashon drivers themselves and that First Student had stalled negotiations and withheld public information concerning wages in other areas. Several Vashon residents contact First Student after the pamphleteering, calling a First Student representative listed on the fliers, Powell said. “Some people were calling the company within minutes of getting the flier,� he said. Last Thursday’s vote to strike was purely procedural, Powell said, and did not mean a strike was imminent. He also said the strike gave the drivers an advantage in negotiations. Ultimately, First Student agreed to a contract proposal that included higher wages for the drivers and did away with a grandfathered pay scale many felt was unfair, Powell said. “The wage proposal that the company agreed to addressed, for the most part, our inequity issue,� Powell said. Now that the union has neared an agreement with First Student, Powell said he hopes that when the time comes, the Vashon Island School District will renew the company’s contract, which expires at the end of this school year. —Natalie Johnson

of no confidence in assistant fire chief The board of Vashon Island Fire & Rescue met in executive session Tuesday evening to discuss the results of an investigation into union allegations against the agency’s assistant chief. Fire Chief Hank Lipe said the results of the investigation would be available to the public after the baord meeting, which took place after The Beachcomber’s press deadline. He also declined to comment on the investigation until after the meeting. “I think it would be inappropriate to release it before the board discussed it and came up with any concrete decision on the information,� he said. The investigation was launched last month after the firefighters’ union took a vote of no confidence in Assistance Chief of Operations George Brown, who has been with the department since 2009. Members of the International Association of Firefighters Local 4189 contend that Brown’s “actions, words and behavior had fostered a work environment which continues to be contentious, demoralizing, demeaning and displays a notable lack of leadership,� according to a letter presented to the fire board last month. At the time, union president Steve Palmer said the 23-member union’s vote, taken in July, was overwhelmingly no confidence. In an interview, he elaborated on the group’s complaints, saying he felt Brown was a poor manager and an ineffec-

tive leader, keeps a schedule that takes him off-island much of the time, doesn’t complete work and is sometimes disrespectful and aggressive. The agency hired a private consulting firm based in Seattle that specializes in internal investigations to research the union’s claims. Lipe said an investigator spent several weeks interviewing VIFR staff members and completed a 30-page report, which was made available to board members last week. While some board members have declined to comment on the situation, others expressed surprise at the turn of events last month and said they believed Brown was doing a good job. Brown, in an interview, denied many of the union’s claims and said he has been implementing changes at the department that Lipe and the board have requested and that operations had improved under his watch. On Friday, board member Candy McCullough said she was planning to review the report before the meeting and would keep an open mind. “I want to do what’s best for the community, and if George is it, I want to keep him. If George isn’t, I want to get rid of him. Bottom line, whatever is the right thing,� she said. — Natalie Johnson

Appeals court rules against Rossers in property dispute The legal fight may be headed to the Supreme Court for consideration By SUSAN RIEMER For The Beachcomber

The Washington Court of Appeals ruled last week in favor of the Vashon Park District in its long running property dispute with islanders Gay and Margaret Rosser. The appeals court upheld a 2012 decision by King County Superior Court judge Laura Gene Middaugh, who determined that the Rossers do not have evidence to support their claims of ownership concerning two contested pieces of property near the VES Fields. Since 2007, Gay Rosser, Margaret Rosser’s daughter, has been in conflict with the Vashon Park District, which leases 30 acres of land at the VES Fields site from the Vashon Island School District. Rosser, whose family owns a home next to the fields, has maintained that her family owns the stretch of road on the south side of the fields. For decades, they have used the road as the driveway to their home and say that the school district owns only an easement on it Additionally, she has been steadfast in maintaining that the Rosser family owns an easement on a small swath of property on the eastern edge of the fields, which abut the western edge of their land. Now, however, two courts have said that it is the school district that owns the road in question and the Rossers have

an easement on it. And both courts have found that the Rossers do not have an easement on the eastern portion of the fields. Gay Rosser voiced her disappointment about the ruling last week. In a voice mail to The Beachcomber, she indicated she planned to take the case to the state Supreme Court. “We are taking this to a higher court because someday someone is going to look at the facts and evidence and realize the truth,” she said in the message. Rosser declined to elaborate further for the record. Vashon Park District commissioner David Hackett, an attorney, said he expected the recent decision and added that the conflict and resulting legal action have been costly for the district. So far the park district has paid more than $65,000 to resolve the dispute, according to park district General Manager Elaine Ott. Hackett also noted the district would have preferred to settle the conflict out of court and made efforts to do so as late as May. “I find it a shame they continue to waste the public’s time and money,” he said. At the root of the dispute, the Rossers say, is an arrangement that they believe was part of an agreement between Leon Rosser, Gay’s father, and then-school superintendent Hal Barton in 1947. The purported agreement was that the Rossers would give an easement on the road to the school district to access the fields, and in return, they say, the school district gave the Rossers an easement along the eastern edge of the property.

But school district officials have said they could not find documentation in support of the Rossers’ claim and — to the contrary — found a 1957 document that appears to counter it. A title search and a survey also showed that the driveway belongs to the school district, with an easement that allows the Rossers to use it. After mediation attempts failed and park district officials said Rosser tried to obstruct construction work by blocking access to the work site, The Vashon Park District filed a suit against Gay Rosser in 2011. Last week, the appeals court was unequivocal in the opinion it issued and found fault with some of what Rosser presented as evidence, saying it was not relevant to the case. According to the court’s opinion, she challenged the validity of the park district’s lease of the fields property, the legality of the athletic fields project and the park district’s compliance with permitting requirements and regulations. She also sought sanctions against the park district’s attorney, but did not identify any sanctionable conduct in the trial court or on the appeal, the document says. “Because the evidence did not give rise to any questions of fact regarding the property interests at issue and the ... arguments Rosser raises have no merit, we affirm the trial court’s order,” the Sept. 16 opinion states. A letter to both parties that accompanied the opinion stated that Gay Rosser may file a motion for reconsideration within 20 days or petition the state Supreme Court within 30 days for a review.

Franciscans launch virtual urgent care service The Franciscan Health System, which operates Vashon’s largest health clinic, recently introduced an urgent care service open to anyone in the state. Franciscan Virtual Urgent Care offers health care services 24 hours a day, seven days a week via telephone or video chat on smartphone, tablet or PC, according to Scott Robinson, a spokesman for the Franciscan system. “We think this is a way to offer more affordable, convenient care,” he said. The service is intended for common complaints, such as a colds, an upset stomach, respiratory infections and rashes, Robinson said. More serious care still calls for in-person treatment, he stressed. “If you’re having chest pains or bleeding, go to the ER or somewhere you can get proper care,” he said. Patients who use the new service will have access to board-certi-

fied doctors and nurse practitioners for medical diagnosis, treatment planning and prescriptions, if appropriate. Health insurance does not cover virtual care, so patients are charged directly. The cost is $35, Robinson said, and that will be reimbursed if the health provider determines that an in-person visit is needed. This virtual service was first offered to Franciscan employees as a benefit, Robinson said, and 92 percent of them reported satisfaction with it. The service will not affect after-hours care at the Franciscan clinic on Vashon in any way, he said, and patients of the service do not need to use Franciscan services at its clinics or hospitals.

Islanders pave the way to help others get help

No easy solution for ferry delays at the north end

A couple on a date is stabbed and the man is killed by a mentally ill homeless person outside of a Sounders game. Another mentally ill person — also with ties to the Northwest — walks into the Navy Yard in Washington, D.C. and takes more than a dozen lives. These things are on my mind as I drive toward the Penny Farcy Building to drop in on an “In-Person Assister Training” on Friday. How do we respond? How do we prevent these types of things? Suddenly, I’m faced with a much more mundane challenge — there’s no place to park. It’s a sunny Friday afternoon, and the Penny Farcy Building conference room is jam-packed with people learning about the intricacies of our state’s new health insurance exchange. This is Vashon, and these 30-some people — predominantly volunteers — are giving up an entire day to listen to trainers from Public Health - Seattle & King County so that they can master the bureaucratic details of a new and confusing government system. And yes, there will be a test. I come at break time. I’m here to meet the trainers, thank them for coming to the island and

It’s happened to most of us: You rush to make the ferry at the north end, only to find that the boats are running late and you’ll be waiting at the dock. Or maybe you think you’ve barely made the boat, only to watch it stop loading and sail away on time but with room on board. For years, the Vashon-Fauntleroy-Southworth route, dubbed the triangle route, has been plagued by its tight scheduled. As state officials note in an article on the front page this week, disruptions easily throw this popular route behind, and it’s hard to catch up, especially now that aging boats are being sailed at slower speeds. But would you choose more reliable service if also meant having slightly fewer sailings throughout the day? Many of us don’t like the sound of this trade-off. Next fall, the triangle route will see one of its smaller, 87-car ferries replaced with a 124-car boat, giving the route two bigger boats and a smaller boat, rather that the current configuration of two smaller boats and one bigger boat. State ferry officials call the ferry reassignment an opportunity to rethink the problematic schedule. More car spaces overall mean the route will be able to carry more vehicles and sailings could be more spaced out, providing some flexibility that doesn’t exist now. Some islanders who are paying attention, however, say a schedule rewrite isn’t the answer and could actually cause problems during commute hours if sailings are less frequent. They argue that the state should try to fix aging boats and improve loading and unloading efficiency at the Fauntleroy dock before it jumps to a schedule revision. The state, on the other hand, says the schedule, which has been in place for a decade at the north end, is simply too tight, and even those changes wouldn’t completely alleviate the delays. We understand the triangle route is complex and inherently prone to delays, but as ferry riders ourselves, we’re also skeptical of a plan to space out sailings simply because we’ll have a larger boat. The route will carry 37 more cars among the three ferries, but we suspect that during busy hours more frequent sailings will do more to alleviate congestion than one bigger boat and the greater capacity won’t matter during times that boats don’t fill anyway. It’s hard to know whether addressing some other issues affecting this route — such as trouble off-loading in West Seattle with no traffic control — will right the course or if a larger solution is really needed. As state officials work to rewrite the triangle route’s schedule, we hope they will continue to seek out funds to again station a police officer to direct traffic at Fauntleroy and to upgrade aging ferries — though replacing the Klahowya should be a great improvement. We also hope they truly listen to islanders’ comments on the schedule we know so well and craft a plan that will work during our hightraffic times. Perhaps someday we can have a route that offers both frequent and reliable sailings, not one or the other.

COMMUNITY By KATHLEEN BARRY JOHNSON thank the Vashon Youth & Family Services (VYFS) staff and volunteers who are attending. I do not expect to hear the level of excitement and enjoyment radiating out of every corner as people consider what they are learning. Shouldn’t they be bored? Shouldn’t they be overwhelmed? Nope. These people are jazzed. They are here to help their community. These men and women are giving up a day to make sure that on Oct. 1, and every day going forward, there are friends and neighbors living on this rock who can help other friends and neighbors access the support they need. Things are going to change; things might be confusing and even frustrating, but in this room on this sunny Friday, there are regular people coming forward with energy and enthusiasm to help all of us navigate our future. I do my thing: First stop is to thank Hilary Emmer, who is

Crime

Recent island burglaries make crime prevention lessons clear Yes, we were burglarized. Since that fateful day of Monday, Sept. 13, Vashon will never be the same for me … for us. It is like our own mini 9/11 paradigm shift. However, some lessons learned: If you enter your home only to find it has been burglarized, what should you do first? (This is a test.) What do you do? You get out! One never knows if the burglar is still there. Stuff can be replaced, lives cannot. If you have valuables, have them in either a safe or in a “creative” location that only you know about. If you have a safe, fasten it permanently to the structure of the house to make it very difficult to remove. Possibly have it in a “creative” place too. Lock, lock, lock.

Security systems, good lighting… We will never feel the same, but thank goodness no one was hurt. Due to some excellent citizen help (you know who you are) and superior police/detective work, we have been able to recover most of our possessions. I think it is about time we all become more proactive in protecting ourselves, our family and our community from the criminal element that exists today. I feel it is time to band together and make Vashon an unwanted location to commit crime. Everyone should be a member of the Yahoo Group Vashon Community Advocates. Perhaps it is time to form a Citizenry Organization for the Proactive Prevention of Crime. I can think of creative ideas to help the criminals believe they are always being “watched.” Together, perhaps, we can bring pack some of the true Vashon, and deep inside, some of the innocence lost.

the heart and lungs behind the effort. (Don’t say that to her; she will downplay her role.) Then I’m on to thank the VYFS staff and volunteers and greet the trainers. There’s paperwork to discuss, of course, and all that will be worked out. Then I’m on my way back to the office, thinking how amazing this community is. I’ve been lucky to be here for nine months now, and I am continually humbled by the depth of community here, by the way islanders reach out to each other and truly desire to make the way easier for those of us who are struggling. There are very difficult problems in the world, and we are not immune. Our neighbors struggle with the same kinds of issues that, when left unaddressed, can lead to the tragic consequences we’ve witnessed (again) this past week. But our neighbors also are working with tremendous energy and full hearts to address those issues, to see to it that people who need help get it. None of this answers the bigger questions, but it does give me hope that we can get to those answers together.

LETTERS CONTINUED FROM 6

Motorcycles

Laws were broken: The yearly ride is a tragedy waiting to happen This is my annual letter about the Vashon Motorcycle Enthusiasts. Scanning a recent Beachcomber, I came to the snippet about the annual Vashon Motorcycle Enthusiast (VME) event. (Scene and Heard, Sept. 11) One sentence stuck out in my mind — that there were no injuries reported. Why would there be any injuries if the participants were following the laws? I can tell you one thing. Laws were being broken right and left past my house for hours. And to tell you the truth, I am surprised there weren’t any accidents. The VME event is a tragedy waiting to happen. And one of these years, I will be able to tell you I told you so. — David Mish

Take the annual event with a cup of tea and some tolerance I read Mary Morse’s commentary and was sorry to hear of her experience. (“Motorcycle ride creates hardship for many,” Sept. 18) I do think her petition is wrong and will result in only negative consequences for the islanders. I am not a member of the Vintage Motorcycle Enthusiasts. I neither oppose or support their events. I do support activities on the island and embrace with toler-

ance the wide range of activities, groups and ultimately individuals who join them. We are a group of diverse islanders with a high level of tolerance. Mary’s petition is the first step in removing such tolerance. Many people I know on the island do not like the inconvenience, the strangers and the noise of the Strawberry Festival. We do tolerate it for the tradition. I do not like swerving into oncoming traffic during the numerous unannounced bicycle events on the island. But I support these groups’ desire to have these events (even without notice). I also embrace the reality that 20 people call each other on a Thursday night to have a fire on the beach the next evening (without notice). I also respect the right of people to gather and protest on all four corners at the stoplight of the street corner (without notice), although it brings inconvenience and discomfort at times to me. Mary, in lieu of a petition that vents your anger, I suggest you do what many do on the island. Note it on your calendar, grab a cup of tea and enjoy the day. Regards to you, Mary. — Joe Leysath

Join the club, know the date — but were the organizers truthful? Why doesn’t everyone who signed Mary Morse’s petition, called “Addressing the negative impact of the motorcycle day,” give her $1, and she can pool that money and join the Vintage Motorcycle Enthusiasts for $30. (As it says on the VME website, “Secret date? Hardly, join the club, know the date.”) And then she can just email you to let you know when to make plans to avoid the noise. And if you follow the recommendations of VashonBePrepared, you will never be without an emergency supply of food at home if you somehow didn’t get the email in time to do your grocery shopping.

The VHS Debate team owes many thanks to Michael Soltman, Susan Hanson and Stephanie Spencer for their strong, steady support of our program over the years. Thanks to retired coach Jim Dorsey for continuing to support us as well, and to Susan Bakker and Char Philps for handling the myriad administrative and travel logistics. Travel to tournaments is the cornerstone of the program. It wouldn’t have been possible without parents: Susan Lofland, Donna &

Ken Zaglin, Howard Stenn, Kelly Chevalier, Ray Weber, Darsie Stella, Ron Salsbury, Janine Jordan, Erika Carleton, Christina DuBois, Lea Heffernan, Brad Roter and Norine Martinsen. Lastly a big shout out to the parents and families, past and present, as well as island businesses and individuals who donate generously each year when VHS Debate raises much-needed funds to sustain the program, special thanks to Brian & Alecia Carter for their annual PTSA auction donation of gourmet dinner parties. We couldn’t do this without all of you! Jil Stenn

Passport to Pain

Many who participated appreciated island hospitality All of us at Vashon Island Rowing Club would like to thank the many, many island motorists who smiled, waved and cheerfully made way for the over 200 cyclists who pedaled Vashon and Maury Saturday, Sept. 14, during our annual Passport to Pain (P2P) ride. In order to spread the field from the start, we’ve discovered that it’s best if we only send a couple of P2P riders out onto the course per minute, while asking our participants to try to avoid riding in large groups that could slow traffic. We hit an all-time high for off-island cyclists this year, many of whom had never ridden the island before. At the post-ride barbecue, we heard from so many who deeply appreciated the gracious courtesies that were extended to them along the ride by motorists, pedestrians, island businesses and even a variety of young entrepreneurs who set up drink and snack stands along the route. Thanks again, Vashon, for your patience and good cheer. —Bruce Morser Vashon Island Rowing Club

Just Ask Emma

Letters accepted must be no more than 150 words and include a daytime phone number. Deadline for this section is noon on Friday. Letters in this section will run as submitted except in the cases of libel or profanity.

Many thanks for the community’s support!

Also, I would like to agree that some of those motorcycles are pretty loud. If Ms. Morse is correct that many of them are violating King County ordinance, then Jody Heintzman and Richard Campbell’s assertion (“Organizers extend thanks, Sept. 18) that the event focuses on, among other things, observing all traffic regulations strikes me as disingenuous.

Current Real Estate Issues To view this blog & make comments, visit www.vashonislandrealestate.com/blog.html

Q: A:

We’ve been through a couple of sales already and are so disappointed that there were so many problems with the houses. The inspector found all kinds of issues. Is there any hope of finding a house that’s really in good shape?

Keep in mind that no one goes under their house. A beautifully remodeled home can be full of wood destroying insects slowly eating away the structure of the home. They can also have rats in the attic (common here) and small leaks that are not apparent but have slowly rotted out the kitchen floor. The smartest sellers have a pre-inspection before they put a house on the market and then fix the things that are problems. That’s all too rare. Deferred maintenance in all of our homes is also common. The back porch stairs that you walk down every day could have rot at the bottom and you wouldn’t notice. The light switches could all have reverse polarity (common) and you’d never know it. The water heater could have been installed improperly and you wouldn’t have a clue. The bottom line is that there are no “perfect’ houses. Even brand new homes have issues that have to be fixed. You will never buy a home if you want to wait for the perfect home. Your best bet is to have your broker negotiate repairs that actually are health or safety issues, and then move in and fix the small things over time yourself. I can’t tell you how many times I’ve sold homes that I sold years before and found the same problems that had been on the inspection then. We live in our homes. They are not museum objects. Some wear and tear is expected. For sellers, I suggest you get an inspection or at least get yourself under the house and see what’s there. Rotted beams, wood destroying organisms, rats, debris and junk all are common. Fix it now, before you put that for sale sign up. You’ll make more money on your house and it will sell faster. Get real folks, nothing is perfect.

Recent herding trials prove dogs are not sheepish on Vashon I don’t know about you, but the first time I saw a sign for “Sheepdog Trials” a year or so ago, my immediate thought was, okay, I get yelling “bad dog” when your dog chews up a shoe. But criminal proceedings? And what would a jury of his peers look like? But it turns out this is about sheep and the dogs that herd them. Who knew? You see, in the neighborhood in New York where I grew up, there were very few sheepdogs. This, I think, was largely due to a distinct lack of sheep. But the woman lately known as my wife knows all about sheepdogs. This is because she is from England. The English have a thing for sheep, and I mean that in a good way. As you no doubt know, the Lord Chancellor in Parliament’s House of Lords actually sits atop a “woolsack” when that house is in session. I have a lot of sympathy for the Lord Chancellor. Here he is, sitting atop this comfy pile of wool, listening to mostly senile lords wool-gathering endlessly about, I don’t know, fox hunting perhaps, and he has to stay awake. But the English like their traditions. They like them because, having lost their empire, that’s all they have left. But I digress. Sheepdog trials, as it turns out, are a kind of contest. A small number of sheep — what would that be, a herdlette? A dozen legs of lamb? — are released at one end of a meadow (in this case Misty Isle Farm), whereupon they immediately

NORTH PASSAGES By WILL NORTH begin munching grass which, as near as anyone can tell, is the only thing sheep know how to do. At the other end of the meadow stands a shepherd, leaning on a crook — not a criminal, mind you; that’s just a term of art in the business for the cane they lean on. In between them is a border collie, aka “sheepdog.” I don’t know whether you’ve spent much time in the company of border collies. I have. And it is humiliating. These leggy, black and white doggies are way smarter than you or I will ever be. They’re not permitted to join MENSA because they’d put all the certified geniuses there to shame. The whole idea, as near as I can tell, is that the shepherd says to the dog, “See here, Angus (they must have Scottish names), go on out there and bring the shaggy beasties home. Oh, and while you’re at it, I want you to split the group in two, run them through a collection of gates and obstacles and, even though they are the dimmest creatures on earth, I want you to do this in record time. Got it?”

SCENE & HEARD: EQUESTRIANS COMPETE Twenty-nine island riders successfully completed the third annual Competitive Trail Ride on Sept 7. All but three riders chose to ride the full 12 miles through forests and along lanes between Paradise Ridge Park and Island Center Forest. Obstacles such as the “Vashon sidewalk� (a stretch of Singer Road lined with signboards) and “Windermere waterfront froperty� tested the obedience and versatility of horse and rider. There were four divisions in all, with Ava Lorentzen taking first among the novices, McKenna Anderson placing first from the juniors, Rheagan Sparks earning first in the adult division and Craig Harmeling and his mule Jordan, pictured at left, placing first in the Social Security division (horse and rider over 60 or any horse over 20).

VISITING WRITER

A poet aims to help others pen their own tales By ELIZABETH SHEPHERD Arts Editor

O

n Saturday, island writers can indulge in two free events led by East Coast poet Michael Czarnecki — a memoir writing workshop at noon and a poetry reading at 7 p.m.

Both events will take place at the Land Trust Building. Czarnecki’s stop on Vashon — part of his current 48-state poetry tour, across the country via U.S. Route 20 — was the brainchild of Vashon’s first poet laureate, Ann Spiers, who served in the role from 2011 to 2013. Spiers, who has published many volumes of

poetry and leads workshops in writing poems and creating poetry chapbooks, said she is excited to welcome Czarnecki to Vashon. According to Spiers, Czarnecki’s work and sensibilities about life are very much in tune with those of islanders. “His look on life, his feeling toward community and the natural world is very similar to ours,” Spiers said. “His details are different from ours — he writes about hills, not mountains, and woods instead of forests, blue jays instead of stellar jays. But he has the same feeling about people and landscapes that people on Vashon have,” she said. Czarnecki, who lives in a small community in

Michael Czarnecki, a poet who lives in a rural community in central New York, will visit Vashon and present a workshop and poetry reading on Saturday. the hills of central New York, defines his work as that of a “poet, publisher, oral memoirist and encourager.” He has written poetry for 45 years, and mentored countless writers through workshops and poet-in-theschool programs, as well as by founding his own small press, FootHills Publishing. Under Czarnecki’s imprimatur, Foothills has published

A dynamic duo reunites for a good cause Several years ago, local musicians Daryl Redeker and Sarah Perlman played several much-appreciated concerts on the island as an energetic violin/fiddle and guitar duo named RedPerl. But the pair hasn’t been seen onstage together lately — both musicians have been busy pursuing separate pursuits. But soon, they’ll reunite for an afternoon of blues, jazz and world music, in a concert slated for 4 p.m. Saturday at the Vashon Theatre. The show is a benefit for Vashon Youth & Family Service, an organization with a mission to help island kids and families. Both Redeker and Perlman are passionate about youth and will invite some of their young music students to join them during the performance. Audiences can expect a set list of tunes

that are influenced by blues, jazz and world music.  Redeker, a guitarist, singer and songwriter, has written and recorded since the 1970s.  He toured with sister Renee, opening for such big names as Phoebe Snow and John Denver. Perlman, a violinist, plays as many styles of music as she can, from blues and folk to rockabilly and classical.  Locally, she plays with Rumor Has It, a string rock band, and with the Vashon Maury Chamber Orchestra, as well as in RedPerl. Both musicians also teach privately. Tickets, $20, are on sale at www.brownpapertickets.com, at the Vashon Bookshop and at the VYFS main office and the PlaySpace. VIP tickets are also available. — Elizabeth Shepherd

more than 300 chapbooks of poetry since 1986. One of these was Spiers’ volume “Long Climb Into Grace,” a bestseller at the Vashon Bookshop. Both prose and poetry writers are welcome to attend Czarnecki’s workshop on Saturday, where he will share a method he calls “palm of hand” memoir writing, after the “palm-of-the-hand” stories of Japanese writer

Yasunari Kawabata. Writers will be encouraged to use the method to focus their energies on completing short individual pieces about their life experiences. The workshop, as well as his evening poetry reading, are sponsored by the Vashon Library and Vashon Island’s Poets Laureate. No registration is required for the workshop.

GO TIME FOR ART AUCTION Vashon Allied Arts hopes to raise $110,000 this weekend at its annual art auction — a two-night affair that has expanded this year to include a free Renaissance Faire scheduled for 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. Saturday across the street from the Blue Heron. The fair will feature performers, arts and crafts, a petting zoo and more. On Friday and Saturday evenings, things will get a bit fancier, but will stick to the theme of King Arthur’s court. The auction on Friday, dubbed “Camelot in the Parking Lot,” will take place at 5:30 p.m. in a tent near the Blue Heron Performing Art Center. Tickets are $45. Saturday night’s event, called “Night at the Round Table,” will be held at 5:30 p.m. Saturday in the same location. Over the course of the two evenings, more than 100 works created by local artists will be up for bid, as well as a choice selection of trips and other one-ofa-kind experiences.

Art will take center stage at the Harbor School Project made possible by community donations By SARAH LOW Staff Writer

Thanks to a successful spring fundraiser and private donations, the Harbor School has launched a new arts program and also will increase the size of its physical campus for the first time with the addition of a new building. Head of School James Cardo said the school’s new arts initiative aims to incorporate arts into all aspects of the fourththrough eighth-grade school’s curriculum. “It’s important for kids this age to exercise that part of their brains,” he said, adding that Harbor School students have always had a strong connection to island artists, who frequently volunteer there. However, the small school’s limited resources have made it difficult to offer regular arts classes or keep a dedicated art teacher on staff. Over the summer, however, school officials hired a part-time art teacher and created a dedicated art studio at the campus north of town. “We really needed a space for all the

wonderful artists that come here to work with the kids,” Cardo said. With physical space already at a premium and causing a waiting list for enrollment, the only Alisara Martin will head way that they the new arts initiative. could create the new studio was to move a regular classroom into a new portable building. After raising $40,000 at the school’s annual benefit auction in March, Cardo said that the school received a generous matching donation that it was not expecting. This, along with money that the school had earmarked from three years of meeting its annual fund goals, made the plans financially viable. “The donations were crucial,” he said. With the money in place, the school was able to move forward, and the art studio was created by renovating one of the existing classrooms. It will continue to be

SAVE THE DATE

used for academic classes until the new building is ready, which Cardo expects to happen in January. “The building should be completed next month,” he said. “Then they’ll bring it over on the ferry.” The new portable classroom will be more than 1,500 square feet, and the design will match the current building. “It’s not your typical portable; this is going to be a permanent part of our campus,” Cardo said. The school has hired islander Alisara Martin to head up the new arts initiative. As a part-time arts coordinator, Martin will teach arts and elective art classes, coordinate with teachers to support arts projects in other subjects and help bring artists into the school to work with students. The total cost of the project, including renovations, the new building and staff, comes to approximately $225,000, and Cardo believes the benefits will be worth it. “This curriculum will give the kids other avenues to express themselves in any subject area,” he said. “We want to be a contributor to the rich community of artists on the island.”

Slip into a romantic mood The Open Space wants islanders to slip into a romantic mood with Une Soirée Musique D’Amour, an evening of French love songs. With cabaret seating by candlelight and an intimate setting, this show will star special guest chanteuse Robin Pluer, joined by Vashon musicians Jack Barbash on piano, Steve Meyer on bass, Fletcher Andrews on drums and Van Crozier on saxophone. The event will be at 8 p.m. Friday, Oct. 5; Tickets, $10 in advance, $12 day of the show, are available at www.brownpapertickets.com and Vashon Bookshop.

Double the fun with music Celebrate the release of two new recordings by musicians Julie Mainstone and Kate MacLeod. They are co-billing to “double the fun” for an evening of music. The event will be held a at Vashon Cohousing. The social hour begins at 5 p.m., the music at 6 p.m. Sunday, Oct. 6. Food will be provided; BYOB. The suggested donation is $15, and reservations are requested; contact Julie Mainstone at savastone@aol.com.

FERRIES CONTINUED FROM 1

Both Stephens and Greg Beardsley, chair of Vashon’s FAC and another member of the steering committee, say they’re unhappy with preliminary schedules that WSF has presented to the group. Any reduction in sailings on the route, even with the addition of a larger boat, they say, could cause problems during peak commute times. “In 24 hours maybe the capacity has not been reduced, but in peak times … in the proposed schedule it’s spreading the departures out so that the capacity in those time frames will be less,” Stephens said. “There will be longer lines and longer waits.” The volunteers also say they believe the state’s plan doesn’t address underlying issues that have caused ferries to frequently run late on the north end. Aging Evergreen State class ferries, particularly the Klahowya, are being sailed slower due to mechanical issues, and the absence of a State Patrol officer to direct traffic at the busy Fauntleroy dock — a position lost in state budget cuts in 2011 — has caused delays in unloading. They also believe allowing some ticketed drivers to bypass the tollbooth, as has been done in the past, could allow for more efficient boarding there.

“The only thing they’re looking at is a 87-car Klahowya. The ferry shuffle will schedule revision,” Stephens said. “We’re leave the Vashon route with two 124-car not seeing a commitment to fixing the ferries and one 87-car ferry, rather than the current configuration of one one larger underlying problems.” WSF officials, however, say that while boat and two smaller boats.

We’re in the middle of a long process.” However, Beardsley and Stephens, on Vashon, say they’re worried about the direction the state is heading and are already trying to spread the word among islanders about the upcoming changes. Beardsley spoke at a recent meeting of the Vashon-Maury Island Community Council (VMICC) and has set up an email account, ferryschedule2014@ centurytel.net, where the public can send comments on the plan to be passed on to state officials. The two also plan to take their concerns to state lawmakers. “My feeling is if we on this island don’t stand up and have another ban-the-bridge assembly, this is going to get jammed down our throats,” he said. VMICC president Tim Johnson said he, too, has concerns about the schedule revision. While the state is planning public outreach — beginning with a meeting next month — Johnson said he hoped the community council will start an early discussion about the changes. The group plans to reach out to islanders with information and take comments over email and social media. “We’re trying to make this a broader conversation and build some support for whatever the community wants,” he said.

Soccer team starts season strong Runners compete in a 50-school meet By BRUCE CYRA

The Vashon Pirates cross country teams took advantage of the sunny last day of summer to race in the state’s third largest cross country invitational last Saturday at Fort Steilacoom Park. For many of the Pirates, it was their first glimpse of a large race with hundreds of competitors. While the sheer size of the competition — more than 50 schools competed — meant Vashon runners left with no awards, the Pirates put forward some early season highlights. The Pirates once again impressed onlookers with their enthusiasm and team spirit, with many exciting down-the-stretch sprints. Jane Oswald was the fastest Pirate girl, completing the 5k course in 21:20 and

The Pirate girls varsity soccer team kicked off its home schedule with a match against Charles Wright on Sept. 17. The Tarriers were ready to play from the opening minutes, pressuring the Vashon back line and creating several good goal scoring opportunities. The Pirates repelled their initial advances, however, and managed to get on the board first, as Harper Howard lofted a beautiful entry pass to the top of the box that Llira McEachern received between two defenders and placed in the upper left corner of the net. In a sign that there were to be plenty of goals in this game, the Tarriers took the kickoff straight down the field and tallied a score of their own less than one minute later. Vashon managed to take the lead again, this time on an entry pass from Emily Browne that Maddie McEachern finished for a 2-1 Pirate lead. Once again, Charles Wright countered almost immediately, this time scoring on a deftly taken penalty kick awarded on a foul in the box. The Tarriers took their first lead of the game a short time later, finishing a chance off the outstretched hands of Vashon keeper Lauren Ockinga for a 3-2

halftime lead. The Pirate defense showed up much stronger in the second half and kept the hard-charging visitors from any further scoring. The offense seemed to pick up its game as well, pressuring Charles Wright again and again without luck. The Pirates finally broke through late in the half as Bailey Ormsby took a pass from Madison Chapman and placed a ball to Maddie McEachern, who beat two defenders and lasered in a shot from 20 yards for her second goal of the game. Both teams turned up the intensity from that

Junior Captain Baxter Call took first with the fastest time of any single in the race. Another first place win came for the junior men’s quad with Patrick Hanson, Charles Elliot, Forrest Miller and Jack Mask. Vashon’s junior men swept the field in the double event, placing first, second and third in this order: Jacob Plihal with Tate Gill, Alexander Wright with Liam McConnell and Lorenzo Higuera with Eli Sedgemore.

The novice women’s eight-plus were powerful, placing seventh out of 11 in an open race, competing with experienced rowers. The boys quad felt good about their race, but the official results are not known due to a timing issue.

Top-ranked Cascade Christian takes down energetic Pirate football squad By CHERYL COCHRANE For The Beachcomber

It was obvious to everyone waiting for the Pirate-Cougar matchup to begin that Friday night football has again become a rallying point for high-school spirit on Vashon. The cheerleading squad arrived on campus riding in a string of vintage convertibles. The Home Game Parade from Ober Park to the high school stadium is a revived Pirate tradition that dates back to the 1960s. In drenching rain, the crowd of enthusiastic, umbrella-wielding Pirate fans filled the stands ready to support their team. As Cascade Christian ran onto the field, it was clear the Cougar team was a large one, both in numbers and the size of players. Cascade only needed the first five plays of scrimmage to prove that it would be a long night for the Pirates. The Cougars easily moved through an outweighed Pirate defense for a 7-0 lead with 10:07 still left to play in the first quarter. Their early score foreshadowed the first half ahead on Vashon High School’s field. In the first two quarters of the game, Cascade Christian’s offense was so large and efficient that it scored on all six possessions. It seemed that Vashon’s momentum might swing in their favor when Pirate Winter Krimmert had the first breakaway run for 34 yards late in the second quarter, but an interception once again returned Cascade to a strong field position. The Pirates answered back with an interception

The Pirates headed into the locker room with the Cougars ahead, 42-0. The second half was a much more balanced matchup as the Pirates faced Cascade’s second string. Although off to a rocky start with another Cougar score followed by a Vashon fumble, the Pirate defense rallied and Cascade’s

Cougars never scored again. Linebacker Ian McWhirter amped up his strong defensive game, making multiple key tackles. Late in the third quarter, Owen Brenno charged through the Cougar line, sacking Cascade’s quarterback. As the fourth quarter started, Ezra Ende moved forward with a solid 19-yard run. Sam Schoenberg’s pass to Evan Anderson finally put Vashon on the scoreboard. After the kickoff, Cascade attempted to move the ball beyond midfield, but was stopped short by repeated tackles by Logan Nelson. On a key play, Winter Krimmert blitzed through the line, pulling down the Cascade running back behind the line of scrimmage. A final touchdown run by Vashon’s Nick Amundsen brought the Pirates up to 14. Although disappointed by the 49-14 loss, Pirate fans came away impressed with how Vashon held up against the number two ranked 1A high school in the state. Head coach Kelvin Goliday said that going into the evening, the Pirates knew Cascade was a strong team and they needed to have a mistake-free game. “It was a great learning experience for us, and I am proud of the way our guys didn’t quit after a not so productive first half,” he said. Vashon will travel to Eatonville on Friday for a 7 p.m. kickoff against the Eatonville Cruisers. — Cheryl Cochrane is the mother of a Pirate football player.

pay attention to those letters, Emmer said, as many will see increases in their rates if they do nothing. Next year, those who do not have insurance will be penalized, and while the penalty will be small initially, there are additional reasons to become insured. Davis, who is active in global health issues and began Shape Up Vashon, one of the organizations participating in the volunteer effort, talked recently about the benefits of having insurance. Many studies have shown that when people do not have health insurance, they wait to receive important health care, she said. With that wait, their illnesses often take a larger toll and become more expensive to treat — on both the individual and societal levels. The Affordable Care Act is intended to change that pattern. “This is a huge game-changer,� Davis said. There has been a great deal of controversy surrounding health care reform, but regardless of where people stand politically, Emmer and Davis say, changes are coming

New management revamps Country Store By SARAH LOW Staff Writer

The Country Store and Gardens may be under new management, but it’s still all in the family, and changes are afoot. The 40-year-old shop and nursery has added staff, increased its inventory and is planning a significant facelift. “It’s been a part of our family and the island for a long time,” said manager Mike Biel. “We really just want to make it a more fun place for people to come and hang out and get whatever they need.” Biel, the son of longtime owner Vy Biel, said he is often surprised to hear that people think The Country Store has been sold or has gone out of business. “I hear it from people all the time. I’ll be talking to someone and they’ll say, ‘The store is still open? I thought it was closing or was sold,’” Biel said, noting that the confusion is likely due to the fact that his mother is no longer running the business.  Vy Biel, 92, moved into an assisted living facility in January, and Mike is now managing the store. “We decided that because the store has been a part of this community for so long that it was important to keep it going,” he said. Biel has also decided to make some changes at the large store and nursery

south of town. During the spring, the staff cleared out some of the antiques and odds and ends that had accumulated at the property over the years and sold them at multiple estate sales. Biel explained that while the store will remain open, they’re now in the process of renovating and will likely be making upgrades for the next six to 12 months. Cleaning out the building, painting, adding offices, re-siding the exterior, cleaning up the grounds and thinning trees are all part of the plan. Biel said that they have also hired more staff to support this renewed focus, including garden experts Sue Day and Mark Basset to manage the store’s 10-acre nursery, where all plants are grown on site. “This has been the best year ever for the nursery,” he said. The store will make good use of the new staff and space that was made available after the spring cleanup by hosting a series of gardening seminars. The first one will coincide with Ciderfest next month and will focus on planting bulbs for the spring. In moving forward, Biel is keeping an eye on the past and the place the store has in Vashon’s history. “We’re taking the store back to its roots,” he said. “That’s our goal.”

Helen Louise (Miller) Fitzpatrick Helen Louise Fitzpatrick born April 13, 1923 in Montoursville, PA to William Henry (1962) and Florence Hummel Miller (1973). She was welcomed home, 90 years young, August 28, 2013, surrounded by family and loved ones at Good Samaritan Hospital in Puyallup, WA. She resided at King’s Manor Senior Living Community in Tacoma, WA until her passing. Helen spent her childhood and youth in Montoursville, PA. After high school she sought a job in a defense plant, working for Sylvania, building radio tubes during WWII, in support of our Armed Forces. Later she would marry, in a happy twist of fate, James Harold Fitzpatrick Sr., who was a radio man/gunner in an SBD Dauntless dive bomber. He received two distinguished flying crosses for his service and bravery. Helen accomplished many things in her life, such as overseeing her husband’s successful Investigation and Security Agency in West Covina, CA. Her greatest joy, besides her family, was her love of writing poetry which was inspired by her love and faith in God. She took great pleasure and accomplishment in overseeing the prayer chain for Shoreline Community Church in Shoreline, WA until she moved to Vashon, WA in 2003. She was the Little League Baseball Series’ ultimate fan. Helen eagerly awaited the next Little League Series and kept track of all the team’s standings each year. Her love for the game began when her husband suggested the site for the Little League World Series stadium in Williamsport, PA and installed their first sound system in 1946. She was preceded by her parents, her husband, James H. Fitzpatrick, Sr. (1987), sister, Ann Lowe; brother, William (Bill) Miller (2013); son, Kevin W. Fitzpatrick (1994), and grandson, Lance Fritts (1999). She is survived by her sister, Lois Mondrick (Tommy), Rochester, NY; sister, Elizabeth (Betty) Harris (Alan), Cogan Station, PA; sister, Beverly Weikle (Max), Hughesville, PA; sister-in-law, Dorothy (Dot) Masteller, Williamsport, PA; son, James H. Fitzpatrick Jr. (Rhonda), Seattle, WA; daughter, Donna (Evan) J. Elliott, Puyallup, WA; son, Michael Fitzpatrick (Miriam), Vashon, WA; daughter, Sherry Fritts (Rob), Clovis, CA; 11 grandchildren and nine great-grandchildren. A memorial service will be held at 1 p.m., Friday, September 27th, 2013 at Mountain View Cemetery; 4100 Steilacoom Blvd. SW, Lakewood, WA. Viewing will be from 10 a.m. to noon. She will be laid to rest at Coeur d’ Alene Memorial Gardens, in Coeur d’ Alene, ID, beside her husband and son. The family would like to thank the staff at King’s Manor Senior Community and the Good Samaritan Hospital for their outstanding care and dedication. To honor her legacy, the family requests a donation to your local food bank in lieu of flowers.

Marilyn Carol (Marcho) Duncan 88 years old Resident of Vashon Island for 47 years, passed away Friday, August 16, 2013, at her home in Patten Palisades, with her family present. Marilyn was born in Everett on January 9, 1925, the only child of Gertrude (Ruth) Finger and Carroll Marcho. She spent her childhood between Everett, Seattle, Gold Bar, and most enjoyably, Silver Lake, Washington. As an only child, Marilyn grew up with numerous beloved cousins, with whom she spent many enjoyable hours. She met Kenneth Duncan, the love of her life, and eloped with him to Coeur d’Alene, Idaho, on April 25, 1949. The two were married for 64 years. During WWII, Marilyn got a job at Boeing when the men were drafted into service. She said she regretted having to give up that good-paying job at the end of the war! Marilyn loved to travel, read, and grow beautiful flowers in her home at the north tip of the Island. She was known to family and friends as a great cook; she also beautifully decorated her home with furniture and collectibles, houseplants and flower arrangements. Marilyn is survived by her loving protector and husband, Kenneth, daughters Candy Duncan (and her children, Callie and Andrew) of Mukilteo, and Connie Zue (and her husband, Brian, and children, Katie and Griffin) of Issaquah, and numerous extended family. Her husband remained her dedicated and loyal caregiver throughout her extended illness. The family would like to extend thanks to the Duncans’ kind and caring neighbors, caregiver Jolene, and hospice nurses for their loving and respectful attention to Marilyn in her final years. Memorial service will be held Saturday, September 28, at the Island Funeral Service on Vashon Island, WA, at 11:00 am. There will be a private gathering at the Duncan family home afterwards. If there’s a heaven, you’ll be there! Please visit our online guest book at www.islandfuneral.com

Young Adult, SPICE was found near Burton and turned over to VIPP. He has a micro chip so VIPP was able to contact the owner but it seems that the Spice Man did not want to stay at this home and was out on the spice route looking for a new one. Spice is a great mixture of cinnamon, cardamom, ginger and turmeric. He can add just the right amount of flavoring and sweetness to your home. Spice came to VIPP on 7/27/13.

Born 2010, BONITA BOO is a silky, slim, petite young girl who is chock full of personality. She would love to be the sole soul mate for her new person. She has a fun, playful spirit and she would make a great family cat. Bonita Boo came to VIPP on 4/14/13.

Born 2003, ANGIE and her sister Annie were turned over to VIPP when their owner died. Angie is an outgoing girl who plops over to have her tummy rubbed. Angie is an easy going self assured personality who is looking forward to settling into a new home with a good set of laps. Angie came to VIPP on 10/20/12

Born about 2008, Carmina is a very serene girl. She is sweet and quiet, but loves to be petted. Carmina was found near Wax Orchard Rd. and brought into VIPP. Upon arrival at the shelter, Carmina was a little shy but quickly warmed up to the people around her. She would love to curl up on your lap all day or cuddle up underneath a blanket to take a nap. This sweetheart hasn’t been claimed and is ready to find a new home. She would be a great member to add to a family.

Born in late 2003, Static was relinquished to VIPP when her person moved away. Despite the name Static, this girl is no stationary cat! Just look at her big round eyeballs. She is curious and playful and full of energy. Static is always ready and waiting for the volunteers to don her with lots of attention. Her sleek fur is a pleasure to touch. Static would be a great cat for a family. She tolerates the other cats but she would prefer a life as an only cat.
