Islanders consider Vashon’s future as a pot producer New group forms for those interested in starting businesses By NATALIE JOHNSON For The Beachcomber

A common start binds many Vashon families together By ELIZABETH SHEPHERD Staff Writer

When Laura Wishik’s daughter Daniela entered first grade, one of the first things Wishik did was mention to her teacher, Tina Taylor, that Daniela had been adopted, and asked her to be on the lookout for any issues that might arise from that fact. But Taylor didn’t react to the news as though it was anything unusual. “’Well, I was adopted, and 15 of the kids in my class were adopted,’” Wishik remembers being told by Taylor. Vashon’s seemingly large numbers of children who came into their families through adoption is something that Wishik, who adopted both her children in Guatemala in 1999, has noticed repeatedly over the years. “When my son was about 10 and still playing softball, one year his entire team

was adopted boys,” Wishik said. Statistics on the actual number of children who were adopted into their families on Vashon don’t exist. But a phenomenon does indeed seem to be in play on the island. Last Sunday afternoon, a large group of families, all bonded by their varying experiences with adoption, came together for a potluck. The party, organized by Mary Margaret Briggs, was the latest installment of a annual gathering that Briggs has hosted for the past 10 years, since moving to Vashon. The noisy party, which took place on a rain-soaked afternoon in Briggs’ spacious artist’s studio, provided a snapshot of the melting pot that is Vashon’s adoptive family community. On the guest list were children from the ages of 4 months to teenagers, of

varying ethnicities, who were born in the United States and many other countries. Their mothers and fathers represented an equally diverse population: single parents, gay and lesbian partners and husband and wife pairings. The children’s adoption stories, too, were different, with adoption taking place at different ages and some children being brought into their homes through the foster care system. But according to Briggs, the entire group has much in common, and it has been important not only for her, but also for her children to stay in touch with other families like hers on the island. “The goal is for our kids to see that the family they’re in is like so many other families in the community — to normalize that for them,” she said.  Like many other families SEE ADOPTION, 18

Islander Shango Los claims that in the 1970s, Vashon Island had a reputation for producing good marijuana, so much so that it was even written about in an issue of Playboy. Now Los, who recently started the Vashon Island Marijuana Entrepreneurs Alliance (VIMEA), hopes to see Vashongrown marijuana revive such a reputation, and he wants to make sure it’s Vashon residents, not enterprising off-islanders, who are producing it. “We get to do it with our own social mores and keep the profits here,” Los told a small group of islanders interested in pot businesses last week at the north-end grange hall. For the past few months, Los, a small business owner who has a background in marketing and communications, has been working to help prepare Vashon residents

Granny’s Attic funnels thousands to health-related programs By SUSAN RIEMER For The Beachcomber

In its first granting cycle since voting to fund health-related programs instead of funneling most of its dollars to the Vashon Health Center, Granny’s Attic recently awarded grants to three organizations that offer a variety of services to low-income islanders. At a meeting last week, Granny’s members provided nearly $40,000 to seven programs run by the Interfaith Council to Prevent Homelessness (IFCH), the Vashon Senior Center and Vashon Community Care. The funds will support established and new programs and services ,ranging from free dental care for adults to a kitchen upgrade at the senior center. Granny’s members also voted to expand the medical voucher program at Vashon Youth & Family Services, making it possible for the program’s clients to obtain

care from several island practitioners, not just those at the Franciscan Medical Clinic — Vashon Island. All of the funds Granny’s provided came from proceeds from the popular thrift store. Janet Kime, the president of the Granny’s Attic board, noted this granting cycle was particularly large because it has been several months since their previous cycle. “We provided almost $40,000, which is a lot for us,” she said. Granny’s Attic first opened in 1975 to support the fledgling clinic that became the Vashon Health Center. In recent years, Granny’s provided $9,000 a month to Highline Medical Center, which administered the clinic, and provided other funds as well, contributing more than $150,000 annually to Highline, Kime said.

By NATALIE JOHNSON Staff Writer

The chief of Vashon Island Fire & Rescue said Monday that he was working address concerns raised after Vashon’s firefighters’ union issued a vote of no confidence in the department’s assistant chief and an internal investigation was completed. The fire board, at its September 24 meeting, reviewed a 30-page report prepared by a thirdparty investigator hired to look into the union’s allegations against Assistant Chief of Operations George Brown. The group then directed VIFR Chief Hank Lipe to develop an action plan in response to the findings. In the report, the investigator, Erika Lochow with Keystone Consulting, a group based in Lynwood, addressed two dozen claims made about Brown by members of the International Association of Firefighters Local 4189. Lochow, in a summary statement, suggested that “Brown and the department would benefit from an improvement in his management and leadership,” according to the report. Brown, who was on vacation at the time the report was released, was unavailable to comment.

Lipe, likewise, declined to give details about his next steps before he had a chance to discuss the report and his plans with Brown, who was expected to return to the island this week. Lipe did say he has serious concerns after reviewing the report and he believes there are areas where Brown needs to improve, such as his communication skills, management abilities and leadership skills. Lipe said he was developing “an aggressive approach to meet George’s deficiencies head-on.” That approach, he said, would likely include professional development for Brown and third-party mediation at the department. “Neither myself or the commissioners have lost confidence in George, unlike the union,” Lipe said. “I feel corrective steps are necessary both for the organization and Assistant Chief Brown.” Board chair Dave Hoffmann declined to comment on the situation, instead directing questions to Lipe. Lochow, who interviewed 13 union and nonunion employees at the department, investigated union claims that Brown is a poor manager and ineffective leader, keeps a schedule that often prevents him from doing his job, does not collaborate with employees to implement changes, lacks integrity, has violated department policies and is sometimes aggressive and makes inappropriate and offensive comments. In what Lipe called a “mixed bag,” Lochow

found basis for some of the allegations, but said “most of the allegations amount to policy interpretations, perceptual differences and a lack of clear communication and intent.” “It is clear that Brown has room for improvement in his project management, delegation, change management, communication, listening and employee engagement skills, and would benefit by changing his approach to clarify his intent,” Lochow wrote in the report. Lipe also said he was left with questions after reviewing the report and planned to hire a consultant to both coach Brown and investigate the situation at the department further. “The issues are likely bigger than the ongoing relationship between those groups, and I want to get to the bottom of it,” he said. Steve Palmer, president of the firefighters’ union, said he appreciated that the department had carried out what appeared to be a thorough investigation. He said union members had some initial concerns about the report and Brown’s apparent responses in the investigation but were hopeful about the process moving forward and Lipe’s interest in resolving the issues. “I’m confident, because the chief has been as collaborative as he has been, that it can be a process we can work through together,” he said.

Vashon candidates to face off at a public forum next week

Two suicides reported in a week

Six islanders vie for park board, two for water district

Following a recent spike in suicides on Vashon, two people on the island died by suicide in late September. Last Wednesday, Sept. 25, Travis Eberle, 22, died by suicide. According to an email sent by Vashon High School principal Danny Rock to VHS families, Eberle went to VHS and last attended the school in 2007. Rock said VHS staff and counselors from Vashon Youth & Family Services made themselves available to students seeking help. Eberle’s death was the fourth reported suicide of a young person in their teens or early 20s in the last 12 months. On Sept. 20, a man died by suicide at the Vashon Cemetery, according to a police report. A spokesman for The King County Sheriff’s Office declined to give details on the incident, citing a policy that information about suicides is not publicly released. The King County Medical Examiner’s Office, however, confirmed that the man was 79-year-old Claude Bibbins. According to official statistics, there are normally zero to three suicides reported per year on Vashon.

Vashon voters will have the opportunity to hear candidates for contested positions on the Vashon Park District and Water District 19 boards present their platforms and answer questions next week at a special forum ahead of November’s election. Sponsored by Voice of Vashon and The Beachcomber, the forum, scheduled for Thursday, Oct. 10, was organized by community activists May Gerstle and Hilary Emmer and will be moderated by former Beachcomber editor Leslie Brown. Citing her passion for voter service and education, Gerstle said that she wanted to continue the Vashon League of Women Voters’ tradition of holding candidate forums each year, even though the group no longer exists on the island. “It’s the only opportunity people will have to get to know the candidates,� she said. Six islanders running for three spots on the Vashon Park District board have been invited

to attend the forum, as have two people running for a spot on Water District 19’s board. Current park district commissioner Lu-Ann Branch is running for reelection and is challenged by Stephen Evans, a patent lawyer who moved to Vashon last year. John Hopkins, who was appointed to the park district board last year after another commissioner stepped down, is running to be elected and is challenged by Scott Harvey, a small business lender who currently serves on the agency’s Oversight Committee. Two islanders are running to fill the position that will be vacated by parks commissioner David Hackett. Doug Ostrom, a semiretired economics professor who grew up on Vashon and returned as an adult, is challenged by Robin Magonegil, who works in the city of Seattle’s planning department and has been involved in youth sports. One position on Water District 19’s threeperson board is also contested. Jenny Bell, a water consultant with graduate studies in administration of potable water, and Mark Graham, an employee of Burton Water Company and local musician, are running for the seat to be vacated by Steve Haworth. At the event, each candidate will make an opening statement, followed by an audience

question period moderated by Brown. The candidates will then make closing statements. Gerstle said she hopes that many people will attend and leave feeling informed about where the candidates stand. “I have heard that there are major differences between the candidates, so it’s a good idea for voters to come and find out what they are,� she said. Only one other seat on an island board is contested this fall. Current cemetery board member Jay Hanson, who was appointed to the board last year, is challenged by John Kimble, an arborist and senior gardener with Seattle Parks and Recreation. Several islanders are running unopposed for seats on public boards, including the school board, fire district board, cemetery board, sewer board and airport district board. Ballots will be mailed Oct. 16 for the Nov. 5 election. For more information and a voter’s guide, see www.kingcounty.gov/elections. The candidates forum will take place from 7 to 9 p.m. Thursday, Oct. 10, at the Penny Farcy Building. For more information, contact Hilary Emmer at 463-7277 or hilonvashon@yahoo.com.

Now is the time to support innovative teaching

Pot on Vashon: Islanders may do it with respect

It is a privilege to be a teacher, to be witness to and engaged with the development of children. I recall a moment years back when I was teaching art. A thirdgrade class happily working away, parent volunteers managing the flow of paints and brushes, everyone on task, then someone noticed the first few flakes drifting down from the sky. Within moments the flakes had multiplied to a white mist and the children collectively gasped, rose from their seats, filed out the art room door and set to spinning, arms wide, eyes open, faces to the sky. No words were spoken, no child asked, no child doubted. I looked at the volunteers and said, “This is why I teach.” Where else in the working world could I have been witness to that? There has never been a better time to be a teacher. I am a reading specialist now. In the field of literacy, and for learning behaviors in general, the science has resoundingly caught up with best practices. We know what works for children, and the tools to deliver it are available. Whether instruction is delivered in the general classroom or in a more specialized setting, we know what works. Being responsible for the more vulnerable learners, having that science and those tools means I can guide the development of literacy skills in the most engaging, targeted and, yes, quantifiable way. Over the course of years, Partners in Education (PIE) has put those tools — all of them —

In August, after a map released by the county showed that much of Vashon could be eligible land for marijuana fields and a pot store could open in the town core in the future, we editorialized about our concerns. We worried 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 where teen alcohol and drug use is already above average. We still have concerns — it’s easy to feel uneasy when no one knows how the new system will play out. However, we’re also eager to give new marijuana businesses a chance and hope islanders are as well. In doing so, perhaps we can create an environment where responsible Vashon residents step up to establish these new businesses in the best ways possible. While new laws and regulations regarding marijuana sales are confusing, even for those hoping to start the businesses, one thing has become clear: It’s almost certain that marijuana will eventually be grown, processed and sold on the island. If islanders don’t go for it, it’s hard to imagine Seattleites won’t come over to take advantage of our large swaths of agriculturally zoned land. And the state Liquor Control Board has suggested they’ll work to assure we have at least one retail shop here. Since the passage of Initiative 502, we’ve seen some uneasiness among islanders about the idea of marijuana sales so close to home. As islander Shango Los, featured in a story on this week’s front page, pointed out, the topic has been taboo for a long time. We had a hard time finding those interested in starting businesses to go on the record about their ideas or plans, a sign they’re uneasy about going public on Vashon. However uncertain, we hope islanders don’t dissuade those who might take advantage of the new law and go into business. We agree with Los and hope that if we keep open minds, some of our community’s most promising entrepreneurs may step up and new businesses may be established with taste and with respect to Vashon values. Maybe grow operations will be set up away from the main roads or business owners will be extra careful to see that their product doesn’t get into the hands of minors. On the other hand, if off-islanders or those less invested in the community fill these new business roles, we worry they might not consider the impacts of their work as much as our neighbors would. Will pot farms and businesses be a boon to Vashon by creating a slate of new jobs and generating profits that will be reinvested on the island? We think it’s too soon to tell. And we’re even more skeptical that pot entrepreneurs would donate much to Vashon charities. But if we welcome responsible entrepreneurs, we could at least see that new pot business doesn’t have negative consequences.

The LIPS Phoneme Segmenting Program, the Barton Reading and Spelling System, a library of leveled non-fiction texts for partner reading, sets of comprehension skill cards, the list goes on. For reading at Chautauqua Elementary, PIE is building the bridge between what we know can be done and having the tools to do it. Four years ago PIE purchased The Barton Reading and Spelling System for the Title I reading program. This curriculum, designed to teach reading and spelling to adults and children on the dyslexic spectrum — originally purchased to serve a specific few — has become an effective tool in all primary reading instruction at Chautauqua.

Bank of America

Corporation represents the worst of capitalism in this country The bank that closed here last week was a community bank. It was staffed by island residents and friends we all knew who, while being paid a pittance compared to their corporate overlords, gave great customer service and often helped bank customers navigate around the sometimes mindless and often unreasonable and uncaring rules and regulations of this bank’s callous overseers. This local bank will be missed.

In my opinion the corporation that closed this bank represents the worst in US capitalist arrogance and greed — billionaires serving millionaires. To get a good idea exactly how much these self-serving individuals care about this island’s customers, notice the kiosk they left us in place of a bank. Notice how it offers no shelter and faces directly into oncoming foul weather. A perfect metaphor to remember the next time we taxpayers are asked to bail out a corporation supposedly too big to allow them to fail. I don’t think so. It’s time we let them stand out in the weather.

and spelling rules. The multisensory nature of the program, which will have students chanting, tapping fingers, manipulating tiles, counting sounds on their fingers and writing on white boards, engages young minds and bodies. Multi-sensory, multi-modal learning is deep learning. Four years ago, there was no pocket in the school system deep enough to purchase this curriculum. PIE stepped forward. Today, this curriculum serves children in every grade level at Chautauqua. PIE builds bridges. Its mission of supporting innovation empowers teachers to do their very best work, individually and collaboratively. PIE trusts teachers. Receiving a PIE grant is a tangible acknowledgement from the community. Teachers dance little dances by their mailboxes the day the acceptances letters appear. PIE grants are a tangible encouragement to go out there and do your best work for the children of Vashon Island. The best of what happens at Chautauqua Elementary is supported by PIE. It is a privilege to be a teacher and doubly so to be a teacher on Vashon Island.

Ferry schedule

Suicide

Agency is committed to maintaining capacity

Language matters when discussing the issue

The purpose of this letter is to add to the article and editorial in the Sept. 24 Beachcomber. Washington State Ferries understands and appreciates the importance of the Fauntleroy/Vashon/ Southworth route to the residents of West Seattle, Vashon Island and Southworth and the attention received regarding the effort under way to review the route’s schedule. The schedule is very complex, with many competing patterns and needs, so the review process has been meticulous — focusing on identifying current traffic patterns, on time performance and actual crossing times and loading/unloading times. WSF will be discussing these data points at public open houses at both Vashon and Southworth this fall — keep an eye out for further information. Developing a schedule that our vessels can realistically meet, providing more resilience to recover from events that delay a vessel and accommodating the additional capacity of the 124-car Cathlamet replacing the 87-car Klahowya are all challenges of this schedule review. In addition, we still need to provide the necessary connections and capacity at specific times. All of this combined requires a good deal of review, re-review and revision. We are committed to developing options that maintain or improve peak period capacity. WSF greatly appreciates the time and effort the Steering Committee, composed of Ferry Advisory Committee members, transit agencies and WSF staff, is putting into this complex task. We look forward to continuing our progress with the communities involved and aim to have draft schedules for public review after the first of the year.

I wanted to respond to Kathleen Gilligan’s thoughtful and informative letter (“Our language should reflect kindness and compassion,” Aug, 27). First of all, my deepest, heartfelt sympathy goes out to her for the unspeakable loss of her treasured son. The phrase ‘’committed suicide” has always seemed wrong to me for some reason, and I’m grateful to have been shown a more compassionate way to speak. May Kathleen and her family be held and comforted in the loving and supportive arms of this island tribe.

— Ray Deardorf Planning Director, Washington State Ferries

meeting. If you are a patient/member/ consumer of GHC and wish to add your name to our petition, please contact us at jameshauser@comcast.net The petition asks: 1. That GHC shall have written policies and procedures to insure that all patients have ready and convenient access to the full range of sound medical practices unrestricted by religious doctrine; 2. That medical staff will have full knowledge of potential restrictions when referring or sending patients to religiously affiliated institutions; 3. That Group Health staff will fully inform patients when referring or sending them to religiously affiliated medical facilities of those potential restrictions, offering ready and convenient options. — James Hauser and Katharine Hunter

Health center

Group Health members have reason for concern We are members of Group Health Cooperative (GHC) and had been receiving some of our health care here at the island clinic. The community meeting about the Franciscan “affiliation”(takeover?) of the Vashon Health Center raised concerns that some types of care might be restricted by religious doctrine. To our surprise, this is a statewide problem for members of Group Health. While Seattle-area Group Health members receive care at secular hospitals (Virginia Mason in Seattle and Evergreen in Bellevue), members in Tacoma, Olympia, Spokane, Bellingham and elsewhere are referred by Group Health to Catholic hospitals. These members face the same concerns we do with our island clinic. So we are gathering signatures to a petition that will be presented to the GHC Board of Trustees at the Oct. 5 annual

I-522

Follow the money before believing the message Another major battle comes to Washington state. This one is about the right to know what is in our food. Most of us received a large, glossy flier in our mailboxes on Thursday filled with, in my opinion, fictitious information. I ask you to read the fine print at the bottom of the outside page. You will see the flier has been paid for by No on 522, and it lists the five major contributors. According to www.pdc.wa.gov. and the flier, they

are Monsanto, $4.7 million; DuPont, $3.37 million; GMA, $2.22 million; Bayer Cropscience, $591,654, and Dow Chemical, $529,531. Another major contributor not listed is BASF at $500,000. So let us follow the money and look at the yes side as well as the no side. Top contributors for yes are Dr. Bronner (pure shampoos and soaps), Nature`s Path (cereals), PCC markets (supporters of local farmers and organic foods) and lastly the people of Washington, the average donation being $25 dollars. What is in it for those providers of genetically engineered plants and the toxic chemicals that are sprayed on them? Why are these corporations desperate to hide the truth about the seeds that are injected with DNA from foreign species, i.e. animals, other plants, bacteria and viruses? Is this done for our health and welfare or for their bottom line? Follow the money. In my opinion, the former state attorney general’s remarks are fallacious. Unfortunately, there is no room here to respond, but here are suggestions for you. Go to www.YESon522.com and research for yourself. Google the actual law and read it. Come to the Oct. 8 free movie at Vashon Theatre, and think carefully about who is paying for these fliers and TV ads. Existing labels give us information about amounts of sodium, sugar and corn, etc. Should we have the right to know if we are consuming genetically modified organisms in packaged food? Labeling would give us the chance to choose. I say yes. — Sheila Brown

Thank you Dr. Larry Glickstein We were sad to learn that Dr. Larry Glickstein of Vashon Veterinary Clinic is retiring. We want to thank Dr. Glickstein for his many years of service to Vashon’s pets and their frequently desperate owners. Larry’s compassionate care, his kindness and his personal attention have been a great comfort to many of us. Above all, his obvious love of animals shines like a beacon. While we are dismayed to realize that Larry will no longer be in veterinary practice, we wish him the absolute best in the years to come. We are so grateful to have had him to care for our dear pets. Sincerely, Drex, Diane and Talin Adkison, Alexandra, FlowerPower & Nonamee; Moushie, Sam & Hugh, Norman & Henry

Thanks for your help with my project I would like to give a huge thank you to Todd Gateman and CalPortland for donating all the concrete and screenings for my Eagle project, which benefits the Vashon Island School District. Gratefully, Peter Wolczko

VSC, True Value and VCC provide a day of fishng for VCC residents True Value donated the rods and reels, Sportmen’s Club members donated lines, sinkers, bait and rigged the outfits, and Care Center staff took residents to the club’s pond on September 16 for an amazing day of fishing. Everyone caught fish, lots of them. Club members and VCC staff assisted as needed. Some folks were in wheelchairs or walkers, others had limited vision or other limitations. Club members cleaned the fish and cooked them on the care center’s bar-b-que with the help of staff. The residents had a great time eating their catch. They are the most appreciative people anyone could help. The Vashon Sportsmen’s Club sponsored the event following the death of islander Cam Sigler, who sold sport fishing gear. Some of the gear was used to put on similar events at the pond for VCC residents. Tom McKey

WHAT’S HAPPENING DANCE THE NIGHT AWAY

Rumor Has It plays a show Rumor Has It, a local band that plays what it calls “stringband rock,” will play a free, all-ages show at 8:30 p.m. Friday at Red Bicycle Bistro. Expect rock influenced by bluegrass, Motown, Celtic, blues country, reggae and all things Vashon. The show is for all ages until 11 p.m. and 21 and older after that.

FIRST FRIDAY FILM SERIES

Get ‘Touchy Feely’ Vashon Film Society’s First Friday art film series will feature Seattle indie darling Lynn Shelton’s new film, “Touchy Feely.” Shelton, a leading figure in the Seattle film scene and the burgeoning “mumblecore” movie movement, has won wide acclaim for her first two films, “Humpday” and “Your Sister’s Sister,” and gone on to direct episodes of “Mad Men” and “New Girl.” She’s been the subject of glowing profiles in major publications, including The New York Times, and all of her films have gained distribution on the art house circuit. “Touchy Feely” tells the unlikely story of a masseuse who develops an aversion to human touch, a dentist who develops miraculous powers to heal his patients and a shy young woman who discovers for the first time the powerful feeling of falling in love. Admission to the show, which starts at 9:30 p.m. Friday, is $7.

MUSIC AT NIRVANA

Sarah Gillespie sings British songstress Sarah Gillespie, known in the United Kingdom and Europe for her fusion of jazz, folk and blues knitted together by poetic, streetwise lyricism, will play a free show at 8:30 p.m. Saturday at Nirvana. Local singer/songwriter Kiki Means will open the show, singing a wide range of covers and original songs. Gillespie’s music has garnered raves worldwide, including one review in the British press that described her as joining “Bob Dylan’s lyrical bite and languid delivery to the forthrightness of Joni Mitchell, with a little rap-like percussiveness thrown in.”

Kids and their parents can hop aboard a celluloid magic carpet, departing from Vashon Theatre during a three-day film festival scheduled to take place this week. A disclaimer: I’m boosting the film presentations not only because I’m a film buff, but also because I had a big hand in creating them. In my off hours from The Beachcomber, I work at the Northwest Film Forum in Seattle, where the programs first sprang to life on the silver screen. The festival — presented on the island by Vashon Film Society — will start at 4 p.m. Friday with a colorful program of animation for all ages. The program is filled with funny, meditative and thrilling stories that span the globe from the Arctic to Mozambique, with stops along the way in Instanbul, India, Germany, France, Argentina and Germany. Only one film in the program has subtitles, and parents should feel free to cuddle close to their little ones and read along. At 4 p.m. Saturday, the festival will continue with a program of live action short films specially curated for those 8 years and older. The show, with offerings from Brazil, Iceland, Colombia, Australia and the United States, includes documentaries and fiction films aimed at inspiring kids to shoot for the stars and overcome obstacles. There are also glimpses of rich cultures and ways of life that are very different from the Vashon experience. One film, “B-Boy,” made by Seattle filmmaker Lisa Cohen, tells the story of a boy who is simultaneously pre-

Another film, “Calling Quilombola,” introduces viewers to a posse of kids from the favelas and villages of Brazil, who reach out to each other in an elaborate game of telephone. Another film, “Minnie Loves Junior,” takes audiences to the beaches of Australia to follow the story of a friendship between an Aboriginal boy and girl. An award-winning film from Iceland, “In a Heartbeat,” tackles the tough subject of bullying, while another film, “Hoverboard,” tells a whimsical tale of time travel. The festival will step back to the dawn of cinema with its third program, set for 4 p.m. Sunday, when Vashon harpist Leslie McMichael will play her haunting harp and toy instrument score for the recently rediscovered and restored 1924 silent film “Captain January.” The film’s star was Baby Peggy — a child actress who took the silver screen by storm 10 years before the success

Peggy: The Elephant in the Room.” In “Captain January,” Baby Peggy appears as an orphan who quite literally washes up on the shore of a wild beach, winning the heart of a crusty old lighthouse keeper who takes her in. The film is suitable for all ages. All the films in the festival’s lineup come from Children’s Film Festival Seattle, an annual festival presented by Northwest Film Forum. McMichael, who is also one of the organizers of the children’s film festival, said she hopes island families take advantage of what is a rare offering of cinema. “Fall is a great time to cozy up in our theater,” said McMichael. “And if you miss these films, they won’t be at the mall multiplex. Bringing them to Vashon is a real draw.” Tickets are $7 for Friday and Saturday shows and $10 on Sunday. A $15 pass will get you into all three shows.

Park district seeks public input on 2014 budget Forum will offer help Two commissioners are also with health reform creating a survey for further public feedback By SUSAN RIEMER Staff Writer

Vashon Park District commissioners will take feedback from islanders about the agency’s 2014 budget, now in the planning stages, as part of its regularly scheduled public meeting next week. Commissioners John Hopkins and Lu-Ann Branch are spearheading efforts to publicize the meeting, Branch said, and are reaching out to islanders who may wish to contribute their opinions either at the meeting or through an online survey, still being developed. “Anybody can show up and provide input on where the park district should put its priorities,” she said about next week’s meeting. She added that such an approach has not been tried before. “People like to be asked,” Branch said. “We’re asking.” The board established this time for public comment at the end of August. At a public meeting then, Hopkins and Branch, who are both running for reelection, discussed their interest in holding a special budget meeting before the board began its budget process in September. Some board members voiced dissenting views on holding such a meeting, and chair Joe Wald suggested using the first meeting in October as a possible compromise solution. Commissioner Bill Ameling tasked Hopkins and Branch with publicizing the meeting. Joe Wubbold, the president of the Keeper’s of Point Robinson and a frequent critic of the district in recent years, said he has been encouraging people to attend. “It’s important that these people come and speak up and get on the record,” he said. He noted that at least two of the candidates for park district commissioner seats will be at the meeting, and he believes it is important for board members and candi-

dates to hear from the public with an election coming in November. “I want as many people as we can stuff into the cattle pen as I can get,” he said, making a reference to the small meeting room and crowded conditions at the last three public meetings. “You bet I want them to be there.” For their part, Branch said she and Hopkins are reaching out to park user groups, turning to VashonAll and the press as the meeting date approaches. As of last week, park district General Manager Elaine Ott said she had not yet been asked to make a special budget presentation at the meeting. She did say, however, that while the district does have certain fixed costs, there is room for public input in a wide range of budget areas, including maintenance, lodging and programming. With the help of islander CC Stone, Branch and Hopkins are in the midst of creating an online survey to gather further information from the public. Both she and Hopkins wanted another outreach too, Branch said. “My contention is that people respond in different ways,” she said. “The survey is another mechanism to find out where we should be putti gour efforts and our money.” Survey responders, Branch said, will be able to provide opinions about budget priorities as well as other issues at the park district. The survey includes questions on which parks people use, how often they use them, if the maintenance levels are satisfactory, if they have suggestions and if they would be willing to offer feedback in the future. “I would like to get a better sense of what the public sees as priorities and where we should go,” she said. The survey, which Branch said she hopes the board will approve Oct. 8, will be available online as soon as Oct. 10, and she hopes many will fill it out. “We’d love to get 1,000 responses,” she said. Branch added that she hopes survey responses will be available in time for the park district’s Oct. 22 meeting. The park district meeting will be at 7 p.m. Tuesday, Oct. 8, at Ober Park.

Islanders with questions about health care reform are invited to attend an informational community forum featuring an outreach specialist from Public Health - Seattle & King County next week. Ca llista Kennedy and other public health staff will be on Vashon on Tuesday, providing a chance for islanders to sign up for health insurance through Washington state’s new health insurance exchange in the afternoon and providing information and answering questions in the evening. Kennedy will address how people can seek help in applying for insurance, the expansion of the Medicaid program and how some people will be able to obtain financial help with their insurance premiums and certain health care expenses, such as copays and deductibles. This assistance is an element of health care reform that is rarely explained and that few people know about, Kennedy said, and many people will be able to ben-

Girls place first at league cross country meet Eatonville Cruisers drive Runners on both teams improve best times By MADDI GROEN For The Beachcomber

The Pirate cross country team’s success seems to be on the rise as the season progresses. The girls’ team took first place of seven teams at a Nisqually League meet hosted by Charles Wright Academy at Fort Stielacoom on Tuesday, Sept. 24. This was the first victory for VHS girls’ cross country in years. The girls scored 41 points, putting them 10 points ahead of secondplace Cedar Park Christian. The top three finishers for the Pirate girls team all beat their personal best times, a big accomplishment considering the amount of hills in the Fort Steilacoom course. Senior Maddi Groen came in second with a time of 20:46; freshman Jane Oslwald placed fourth with a time of 21:18, and freshman Jessica Merritt came in ninth, running the course in 23:17. Sophomore Natalie VanDevanter was the fourth finisher for the varsity team and improved her season record despite a knee injury. Sophomore Aubrey Kraabel ran a fantastic race as well, smashing her season record by almost three minutes.

Freshman Jessica Merritt kicks down the final stretch of the Fort Steilacoom course on Tuesday, Sept. 24. Merritt finished ninth in the race. The boys team placed fifth at Fort Steilacoom, beating Life Christian Academy and Cascade Christian. Freshman Jeffrey Parrish ran his first 5k in under 19 minutes and placed 21st. The Pirates’ number-two runner, junior Aaron Kitchener, ran an all-time personal record of 20:08. He hopes to break through the 20-minute barrier in meets to follow. For the second week in a row, the VHS cross country team had a twomeet week. Luckily, there were three days of practice after the meet at Fort Steilacoom to prepare for their next race: the Pacific Lutheran University Middle School and High School Invitational, where more

than 30 teams competed. Although both the boys’ and girls’ teams were still recovering from performances earlier in the week, everyone proved their durability by attacking the new course with high spirits in rainy and muddy conditions on Saturday, Sept. 28. The invitational was separated into five races. First, there was a co-ed middle school 2k and four separate 5k races for freshman/ sophomore girls, freshman/ sophomore boys, junior/ senior girls and junior/ senior boys. Seventh-grader Clara At wel l represented McMurray brilliantly once again, finishing in 12th place with a time of 9:51. Next, freshman Jane

Oswald finished third in her race, but was the fastest freshman, earning a Freshman Champion medal. Freshman Eva Cyra also thrived on the muddy course, improving her personal record by more than 40 seconds. For the boys, freshmen Langston Dziko and Isaac Hughes remained side-byside throughout the entire race, pushing each other to improve both their personal records. Hughes tried to make a move on Dziko with about 50 meters to go, but Dziko passed him with an impressive final kick. Maddi Groen took second place in the junior/ senior girls race and also took home the Senior Champion title. Senior Camille Charnews showed junior Jenn Hornish the ropes for Hornish’s first high school meet. Both fought through the downpour and Hornish finished 46th, Charnews 47th. Junior Joe Shugart’s relentlessness on the course was evident on Saturday; he dropped almost a minute off of his personal record despite the weather. Junior Aaron Kitchener and seniors Codi Williams and Philip VanDevanter finished in a close pack in 34th, 36th and 37th place, respectively. — Maddi Groen is a member of the Vashon cross country team.

over Pirates, 41-20 By CHERYL COCHRANE For The Beachcomber

The Vashon football team had no answer for the Cruisers’ offense Friday night at the Eatonville Stadium, surrendering 596 yards of offense en route to a 41-20 loss. The Pirate defensive line was regularly gashed as the front seven were unable to consistently provide pressure and clog running lanes. When the Pirates did manage to wrest control away from their hosts, their drives were most often short-lived. A year after rejoining the 1A Nisqually League, the 64-player Eatonville team jumped out with an early score against the 29-player Pirate squad. It was clear that the Cruisers had sharpened their skills battling larger schools during their recent 2A rotation. There were glimmers of hope for Vashon when lineman Owen Brenno delivered a potent sack followed by solid tackles by Nate Lawson and Ian McWhirter. The forced Cruiser punt set the ball into Pirate hands, but Eatonville regained possession. Any wish Vashon had of a comeback was eliminated when the Cruiser offense added another big play touchdown, running through a large gap and continuing 65 yards to the end zone. On their next drive, the Cruisers scored again from the 35-yard line.

The Pirates headed into the locker room at halftime with the Cruisers leading, 21-0. Eatonville picked up right where they left off when the third-quarter kickoff was returned with an 80-yard touchdown run, bringing the score to 27-0. It was not until the Cruisers started to work through their deep bench that the Pirates were able to gain some traction. After a couple unsuccessful drives, quarterback Sam Schoenberg finally found wide receiver Evan Anderson for a 9-yard touchdown. Eatonville responded quickly with a punishing 82-yard touchdown run and 2-point conversion, bringing the score to 35-7. The Cruisers scored again following a nine-play drive, upping their lead to 41-7. Vashon’s most significant action came late in the fourth quarter as they faced fresh Cruiser back-up players. The exhausted Pirates, many of whom played offense and defense throughout the game, mustered a final scoring spree with a Nick Amundsen touchdown run from the 10-yard line, followed by a Sam Schoenberg to Evan Anderson 30-yard touchdown pass with less than a minute on the clock. The Pirates will face the Port Townsend Redskins at Vashon High School Stadium at 6 p.m. Friday. — Cheryl Cochrane is the mother of a Pirate football player.

During his years as a Pirate, he was recognized at every level, receiving recognition as an outstanding All-Nisqually League, AllState and All-American high school player.

Monday’s game was never in doubt as the Pirate girls quickly showed their guests that they meant business by scoring five first half goals, three from senior forward Llira McEachern and two more from sophomore Maddie McEachern. The second half was much the same story as the Pirates tacked on five more, this time featuring a hat trick from Ana Deguzman and a pair from freshman Madison Browne. Assists were scattered throughout the score sheet from a variety of players, including Mira Jewell-Peterson, who made her first appearance of the season. The lone blemish on the stat sheet was a nicely taken free kick by the Eagles from about 25 yards for the final score, 10-1. Bellevue Christian showed the Pirates that they have greatly improved from last season, hosting the Pirates in a tightly contested affair. Vashon managed a lone first half tally by Madison Chapman, who

Bellevue managed several quality chances throughout the first half and early stages of the second, only to be turned away by good defense and bad luck. With the game still in doubt, Vashon produced a clinching goal on a long run and precisely placed shot from Llira McEachern as the Vikings net minder came out to meet her at the top of the 18-yard box. The final few minutes passed without event and the Pirates boarded the bus with a 3-0-2 record. The match on Friday featured state finalists Seattle Christian and their powerful line-up. With premier club players at nearly every position the Warriors present a formidable obstacle, but one that the Pirate girls were ready to take on. Seattle Christian scored first but was quickly answered as Maddie McEachern snuck a shot into the corner of the net on a corner kick. Soon after, the Warriors rung the bell again, and the score at half-

time was 1-2. Play continued at a frenzied pace in the second half as both teams showed their quality. After a great deal of back-and-forth play, Maddie McEachern scored again, this time on a free kick that eluded the Seattle Christian keeper to knot the game at 2. Unfortunately, the Pirates were unable to keep the Warriors out of the net, as they gave up two more goals before time expired. The Pirates managed several chances of their own as time wound down, only to be turned away time and again by a stout Seattle Christian defense. With the 2-4, loss the Pirates head into another three-game schedule this week with a respectable 3-1-2 record. The week began with a road game against Nisqually League leader Eatonville on Monday after press deadline, followed by home games against Chimicum on Wednesday and Cedar Park on Saturday.

season sacks for the Huskies. Chorak went on to a brief career as a professional player. Earlier this year, he was elected to UW’s Husky Ring of Honor. Kickoff for Friday’s game is at 6 p.m., with the Pirates taking on Port Townsend. The Bounty Club is sponsoring the jersey retirement event, and pre-game festivities will take place at Sporty’s. A dessert buffet meet and greet with Chorak will be held immediately following the game at Sound Food. Proceeds will benefit the youth, middle school and high school football program. Also at Friday’s game, volunteers for the 1st Lt. Robert N. Bennedsen Memorial Project will be on hand raising funds for a scholarship. — Cheryl Pruett

Crew offers boat naming as fundraiser Vashon Island Rowing Club (VIRC) is holding a month-long fundraiser, offering naming rights on some of its rowing shells. The club is undertaking a series of fundraising efforts to purchase new equipment and replace some of its aging shells. The group hopes to raise $11,000 toward a goal of $60,000. The naming rights for a single shell will be offered in a raffle with spots for 20 participants who donate $200. The club will also include a 60-day rotating sponsorship banner on the website for the first five donors. The remaining 15 donors will receive a smaller 30-day banner. For the double shell, the club is accepting donations with a goal of $7,000 total. The

largest donor wins the naming rights and a one-year sponsorship banner on the crew and Passport2Pain websites. “This is a great opportunity for businesses to associate themselves with a popular local sport or for families to honor a friend or relative� said Marianne Metz Lipe, a junior crew parent and contest organizer. VIRC coach Richard Parr said he hoped the fundraiser would help the club purchase new shells. Many local rowing clubs replace their boats after two or three years of use. The oldest in the Vashon fleet is 15 years old, and the average age is 10 years. “Great boats can’t win you a race, but an aged boat can definitely cause you to lose,� Parr said.

ADOPTION CONTINUED FROM 1

on Vashon, Briggs adopted children who were born in another country. Her son Sam, now 13, was born in Hong Kong, where Briggs and her husband Daniel lived at the time of Sam’s adoption. After moving back to the United States, they adopted their daughter Flora, who was born in China in 2002. Other children on Vashon have been adopted from places, including Cambodia, Vietnam, Taiwan, Korea, China, Haiti, different countries in Africa and Europe, and throughout South and Central America. According to Laura Wishik, these children have added much to the island. “It has a positive cultural implication for Vashon to have so many connections to so many parts of the world,” she said. “We have more diversity of appearance and we have diversity in that people know more about other cultures.” Vashon’s demographic of transnationally adopted children is part of a national trend — the number of transnational adoptions reached a high of nearly 23,000 in 2004. Many of those children are now in middle school and high school. Islander Nancy Murphy and her husband Mark Rutherford adopted their daughter

Her own children — siblings for an extended visit on Vashon. Open adoption is a trend that helps three of whom were adopted as infants and

another who is her birth child, but adopted by her spouse, Trish Dziko — are AfricanAmerican. She is concerned that her own children, and some other multicultural children who live on Vashon, don’t have enough role models of their own backgrounds on the island. “You have a lot of kids of color here, but very few adults of color,” she said. “For kids to do something, they need to see an adult who looks like them doing it.” Kathleen Johnson, executive director of Vashon Youth & Family Services, was herself an adoptee, and she said her agency strives to provide services to adoptive families. “There are a myriad of needs that come into play when you talk about adoptive families,” she said. “We’re here to really react to what the clients are identifying as their needs.” And as last Sunday’s boisterous potluck at Mary Margaret Briggs’ studio proved, there are many people on Vashon whose lives have been touched by adoption who are eager to network with other parents and encourage others to begin the process of adoption. “It’s not uncommon for someone (who is interested in adoption) to call up with questions,” said Nancy Murphy. “I meet them with a lot of enthusiasm, because this is the best thing I’ve ever done.”

GRANNY’S CONTINUED FROM 1

Granny’s members — those who volunteer at the thrift shop — had long wanted more control over the money they bestowed. After the merger with the Franciscans this spring, they voted to stop subsidies to the clinic in favor a grants-based approach to awarding funds. The membership meeting on Sept. 25 was the first time Granny’s has provided grants in this new way, Kime said, and the group voted unanimously to fund seven of nine grant requests it had received. One of the smallest grants it awarded was $3,000 to an innovative new denture program that is open to patients who have received services at the dental van. In partnership with a denture clinic in Tacoma, which offers low-cost dentures to people who use programs such as the dental van, it is now possible for low-income islanders to obtain dentures through a combination of a grant from the interfaith council, which oversees the dental van services, a small amount of their own money and a microloan, which the patients can pay back over time. Granny’s has provided funds for the interfaith council to provide as denture grants and the small loans. Hilary Emmer, who coordinates the free dental services on the island, said she came up with the idea after seeing a large need for it. Emmer has already tried this approach with one islander, a man whose employer had told him he would increase

WWW.VASHONBEACHCOMBER.COM

his hours and put him in a more public role in the company if he could get dentures. His dentures are still in process, but Emmer said she believes they will be transformative once they are complete. “It will change his life, and he’s only 38,” she said. Granny’s continued its support of the regular dental van services with its largest grant this round: $15,000. The van made 16 trips to Vashon for adults last year, Emmer said, and provided 274 dental exams, 235 fillings, 86 extractions and five root canals. The total value of its services was $124,294, Emmer said, but cost the interfaith council just $13,360. Granny’s also voted to support the new program Neighbor to Neighbor, which is intended to help island seniors age comfortably in their homes with a variety of volunteer support. The Vashon Senior Center will administer the program, which has been on the drawing board for more than two years, according to Ava Apple, the center’s director. The $6,000 Granny’s provided will mostly cover administration costs, including the recruitment and training of volunteers, with the first training session slated for later this month. The senior center also received $10,000 for the kitchen upgrade it has been working on for months. “I’m very pleased and grateful,” Apple said. “It helps considerably.” The Granny’s money will go to a new dishwashing system, badly needed at the facility, which routinely feeds island elders. Kime noted that the senior center had previously only received one small grant

Diane Kathleen Hunter, aged 66, slipped away under a harvest moon in the early hours of the morning of September 19th, 2013. Born in Los Angeles, she was, back in the day, a cohort of Allen Ginsberg, Neal Cassady, Shel Silverstein, Francis Ford Coppola and Jackson Browne. Impossibly beautiful, she was a model and did a brief stint as the town floozy in the soap opera,“General Hospital”. Die could be a formidable poker opponent and was willing and able to wield like a hammer the language and attitude of a teamster when appropriate - perhaps sometimes when not appropriate. But this thin, surly protective coating could not possibly conceal a spirit so loving, generous, loyal and honest that those who considered her a second mother are legion. She moved with her husband to Vashon in 2005 with the intention of pursuing, in a serious manner, her childhood passion - the meticulous and slightly obsessive art of dollhouse miniatures, receiving recognition as an Artisan by the International Guild of Miniature Artisans a couple of years later. Diane is survived in deep grief by: husband, Stephen Hunter; son, Jesse Hunter; mother, Kitty Curley; brother, Rick Curley and assorted sisters-in-law, cousins, nephews, a niece and more beloved friends than can readily be counted.

from Granny’s, and she was glad to provide these funds now. “I’m happy to bring them on board,” she said. Tim Johnson, the manager of Granny’s Attic, noted that at first glance it may seem that providing funds for a kitchen remodel is not health-related, but a closer look shows it is very much in line with Granny’s philosophy. The center offers full meals and social activities — both known to be beneficial to health. “It’s more than just a club,” he added. The smallest grant in this cycle was a grant of $625 for a physical therapist at Vashon Community Care to attend a training for chair yoga, which she will then teach the residents. “The benefits of this will come right back to the community,” Kime said. In a surprise move, Granny’s members voted to give IFCH $5,000 for health services instead of the $2,000 the group asked for. The council routinely provides funds for services related to medical care that are not otherwise covered, such as medications, co-pays and transportation expenses, said Nancy Vanderpool, a leader with the service group. “It sounds wonderful,” she said. “This grant from Granny’s will give us even more flexibility.” Finally, Granny’s members voted in favor of opening the medical voucher program it funds at Vashon Youth & Family Services to providers outside the Franciscan clinic on Vashon. People who qualify for the vouchers, which cover the cost of medical care, are now able to see providers at a variety of medical clinics as well as physical

therapists and a massage therapist. “It’s community taking care of community,” said Deborah Rieschl, who oversees the voucher program. Two proposals that were not funded were from the Franciscan Health System, which requested funds to assist Vashon staff with transportation costs, Kime said, and the Vashon Timebank. The proposals were turned down, both Kime and Johnson said, because they did not fit within the granting parameters of funding for health-related projects. In particular, they noted, Granny’s members felt the transportation expenses were an operational expense, but that Granny’s would welcome partnering with the Franciscans on health-related projects and fully expects to fund those in the future. Granny’s will award its next round of grants Dec. 4, Johnson said, and already two proposals have been submitted for consideration. The funding process includes a grants committee that reviews the requests then makes recommendations to the executive committee. This committee in turn makes granting recommendations to the full membership. The process worked well, Johnson said, and the members put a lot of thought into the results. “There is a sophistication you would not expect from an informal group,” he said. He attributed part of that to the fact that many of the granting board members were department or shift heads at the shop. “We all work here, and we know how much work is involved in making the money,” he said.

Travis Faulkner Eberle On Wednesday, September 25, 2013 our son Travis Faulkner Eberle passed from this world. Travis was born on October 18, 1990 in Seattle, Washington and was raised on Vashon Island. Travis was a vibrant, unique one of a kind individual.  He was a free spirit, large of heart, with a deep and lovely soul.  Travis’ love and compassion for his family and friends knew no limits. Travis was always available with a helping hand, a supportive shoulder and a listening set of ears.  He never failed to put the needs of his family and friends before his own.  Travis was an amazingly beautiful individual, not only outwardly but inwardly as well.  He loved the beauty of this life and those who truly knew Travis knew that he took every opportunity to savor this life to its outer most limits, (often to his own detriment), but whatever consequence awaited him it never stopped Travis from continuing to live and experience life to its fullest up to its very end. “Always in the dream, it seemed as if there were a destination: a something–he could not grasp what-that lay beyond the place where the thickness of snow brought the sled to a stop. He was left, upon awakening, with the feeling that he wanted, even somehow needed, to reach the something that waited in the distance. The feeling that it was good. That it was welcoming. That it was significant. But he did not know how to get there.”  – Lois Lowry, The Giver

Travis is survived by his mother Nancy Dierks (Randy Sonnier), his brother Ian Mattingly, his grandfather Gordon Dierks, his father Daniel Eberle (Laura), his grandfather Robert Eberle (Claire), his uncle Aaron Dierks (Sheryl) Gus and Hailee Dierks, Aunt Susan Stahfeldt (Eric), Marta and Karl Stahfeldt, Aunt Jill Musgrove (Greg), Emily, Jennifer, and Nathan Musgrove, and many extended family members and so many wonderful friends. A memorial fund in Travis’s name is being set up at US Bank for youth with addiction issues. A memorial service will be held Saturday, October 12, 2013, 2pm at The Bethel Church, 14736 Bethel Lane SW, Vashon. A reception will follow at the old VFW Hall.

MARIJUANA CONTINUED FROM 1

shrimp, has been reaching out to known Vashon marijuana growers — both of illegal marijuana growing operations and legal medicinal ones. He’s also been talking with those interested in starting new marijuana-related businesses and funneling questions to officials at the state Liquor Control Board, which will regulate as many as 61 pot stores in King County, as well as marijuana growing and processing in the state. Los created a new Facebook page for VIMEA, is collecting initial information for a database of marijuanafriendly businesses on Vashon and held the group’s first community meeting last Thursday at the grange. About 20 islanders showed for the VIMEA mixer, where some observed the meeting quietly and others frequently piped in to discuss how they hope to make money off marijuana, ask questions about the new laws and suggest how members of the group might collaborate in the future. Islander Mandy Dumins attended the meeting after reading an announcement about it and said she left more determined than before to start a marijuana-related business.

“We’re so glad we found (the meeting) and so glad we went,” she said. Dumins and her fiancé, an author and retired computer programmer who uses medical marijuana to help control his central pain syndrome, currently grow a few plants legally, she said. The two are now considering growing pot on their 2-acre property at the north end, a business the 52-year-old said would fit their lifestyle and supplement their income. They considered starting a retail operation as well, but at the VIMEA meeting learned that the Liquor Control Board won’t allow one business to both grow pot and manage a retail outlet. Dumins, an artist who has a degree in graphic design, said she also hopes to design logos for new marijuana businesses on the island in addition to selling pot to distributors. “The opportunity is perfect right now, especially if it’s centered around Vashon for us,” she said. Indeed, Los said, Vashon seems an ideal spot for new marijuana businesses and growing operations. With much of the island zoned agricultural, Vashon is one of a handful of places in King County well suited for outdoor pot farms. In addition, Los said, the ferry could prevent some of the crime that some worry will spring up around new marijuana businesses.

Wednesday, October 2, 2013 • Vashon-Maury Island Beachcomber

“King County has said ‘You’ve got the best of all worlds,’” Los said at last week’s meeting. In an interview with The Beachcomber, Los said that he doesn’t grow marijuana and while he may profit in the future by providing consulting for new businesses, right now he simply wants to see them get up and going, something he believes will be easier if islanders collaborate and share their ideas and skills. Some he’s spoken to, Los said, are hesitant to start marijuana businesses or discuss their ideas for fear of backlash from the community or those they know. “It’s been taboo for a long time, and people who want to exercise their rights within I-502 are being extra cautious because they don’t want to alienate their neighbors,” Los said. “Everyone’s at home talking at their dining room tables, but no one’s talking as a community.” Los, however, is trying to spread the message that Vashon will actually be better off if islanders, whom he frequently refers to as “good neighbors,” step up to grow, process and sell pot. If they don’t, he said, it’s likely people from offisland will purchase or rent Vashon property to do so and won’t show islanders the same considerations that island residents who are familiar with the community might. While he believes there may inevitably be some negative impacts related to marijuana farming and sales, Los said, they’ll be more controlled if islanders are in the drivers’ seat. “I’m not naive to the social impacts,” he said. “But if we don’t encourage islanders to be the growers, we won’t have a say in how marijuana agriculture evolves on Vashon.” Vashon business owners, Los added, could also create local jobs and keep profits on the island. He’s even encouraging people to share their future profits and donate some of their new income to local causes. “If we do this right, there’s no reason we should have a problem paying for ball fields or church groups trying to raise money for a new freezer,” he said. “If managed correctly, this could be a huge boon for our community.” Jim Marsh, who heads the Vashon Maury Island Chamber of Commerce and attended last week’s VIMEA meeting, said he agreed that the legalization of marijuana sales will bring changes to Vashon’s business scene, but he wasn’t yet sure how it would play out. “I think there’s a lot of potential for the growing,” he said. “We grow really good apples and other produce here. We might as well grow good pot.” The state Liquor Control Board recently announced it would license 61 marijuana stores in King County. As an unincorporated area, Vashon will be eligible for one or more of 11 at-large licenses. One state official suggested that if no Vashon resident step up to establish a marijuana retail outlet on the island, the state may assign an offislander to open a shop. Online applications for business permits are due Nov. 18, with the winners of a lottery for retail stores to be announced in December. Marsh said the chamber would welcome legal marijuana business owners as members and could provide some resources for the start-up operations, but he was happy to see someone with specific knowledge about marijuana and the related laws volunteer to help others. “It’s going to be a legal business on the island no matter what,” he said. “It’s nice to see someone stepping up, because we would get a lot of calls and we don’t know all the answers.”

Born 4/20/13, Bo and Lola 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 Lolaâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s condition resolves itself completely. They were born on April 20th and they came to VIPP on 5/24/13.

All the folks at VIPP remember Lillyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s tennis ball moment and itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s been impressive to watch her doing the hard work to earn herself a family ever since. Sheâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s dropped just under 15 pounds and, at age five, is looking as fit as ever.
