State begins wide soil cleanup effort Seeing the world: An islander rides south

Hundreds of homeowners offered free yard testing

Retiree reflects on 20,000-mile journey

By NATALIE JOHNSON Staff Writer

On Monday afternoon, Valencia Lund looked over her property at the southern end of Maury Island as a half-dozen people in brightly colored vests worked in her yard and garden. The state workers weren’t doing landscaping, but collecting small soil samples to be sent to a lab in Tacoma and tested for arsenic. Lund is one of 700 Vashon and Maury homeowners identified as eligible for a publicly funded yard testing and cleanup program that kicked off this month. And if arsenic levels in her yard are high, she could receive a foot of new topsoil, part of the state Department of Ecology’s (DOE) neighborhood-by-neighborhood effort to find and remove arsenic-laced soil from those areas most contaminated by the historic Asarco plume. Testing will go through next year, and yard cleanup will begin as soon as next summer. “We’re really encouraging people to participate,” said Hannah Aoyagi, an outreach and education specialist at DOE’s Toxics Cleanup Program. “This is probably the one opportunity we’ll have to go out and systemically sample all these homes.”

Josh Harp and Laura Klien, soil samplers with the state Department of Natural Resources, collect dirt samples from a garden at a Maury Island home. State funding for the massive cleanup, comes from a settlement with Asarco, a Ruston-based copper smelter, made when it filed for bankruptcy in 2005. The state received $188 million in settlement funds and expects to spend about $64 million of that on its yard cleanup program,

which will also take place in north Tacoma. For now, the state program is targeting two swaths of the island where previous testing has shown that parcels are most likely to contain high levels of arsenic — the southern third SEE SOIL, 18

A dream held for more than half a century was realized this past March, when islander Ed Holmes arrived in Tierra del Fuego, the southernmost tip of Argentina, after riding his motorcycle the entire length of the continental United States and Central and South America. Holmes will speak and show a slide show of photos from the seven-month journey — which covered 20,000 miles and 13 countries — next week at the Vashon Senior Center. Growing up in Seattle, Holmes began to dream of the big trip when he was in junior high. Now 70, he still recalls how reading adventure literature inspired him to plan his own great journey: to ride a motorcycle all the way to the southernmost tip of South America. By the time he was a junior in high school, he

already had his route planned out, despite having never ridden a motorcycle. Holmes eventually told some friends about his plans, and they thought it was a great idea, he said. So great, in fact, that they decided to do it themselves, leaving Holmes dejected. “This was high school,” he said. “All I could think was, ‘They stole my idea,’ and I didn’t want to do it any more. I set it aside.” Still, Holmes’ interest in the indigenous cultures of South America grew, so much so that he obtained a degree in Latin American history and Spanish at the University of Washington in 1966. While working toward a master of divinity degree from Princeton Theological Seminary, he was able to spend a year doing research in Buenos Aires, Argentina. He also spent time in Mexico and lived in Ecuador for several years. All the while, he said, the motorcycle trip remained in the back of his mind. “Maybe when I retire,” he recalled thinking to himself. SEE MOTORCYCLE, 17

VAA launches $2.5 million fundraiser Organization turns to the public to round out funding for its new arts center By NATALIE JOHNSON Staff Writer

This month Vashon Allied Arts launched an ambitious fundraising campaign to bring in the final $2.5 million required to break ground on its new performing arts center next fall. A surprise announcement about the campaign was made at the second night of VAA’s annual auction, on Sept. 28, when a small slate of islanders took to Jeff Dunnicliff Photo the stage holding signs reading “Partners in the arts.” Supporters of the Vashon Center for the Arts take to the stage at VAA’s The group included familiar supporters — Drama annual art auction last month. Dock director Gaye Detzer and Vashon Opera direc-

tor Jennifer Krikawa — as well as a few from outside the arts community — Fire Chief Hank Lipe, school Superintendent Michael Soltman and chamber director Jim Marsh. “We hope people that care about it support it,” Marsh said in an interview, noting that the chamber of commerce voted to endorse the project years ago, when VAA was in its early planning stages. “I have every confidence that they’ll make it happen,” he said. Indeed, after years of planning, designing and fundraising, VAA officials are proclaiming that the arts organization is nearing the final stretch in its effort to construct a $16.9 million arts center at the corner of Vashon Highway and Cemetery Road. “The end is in sight. The eye is on the prize,” said SEE VAA, 20

New program to help seniors remain in their homes set to launch soon By SUSAN RIEMER Staff Writer

Island seniors will be able to call upon volunteers to help with a variety of everyday tasks when a new program launches next month. Neighbor to Neighbor, more than two years in the making, is intended to help islanders remain in their homes as they age by providing services, such as lawn mowing, driving to the grocery store or someone simply calling to check in, through a network of trained volunteers. “Connecting people, that is the bottom line,� said Emma Amiad, who has been active in the group’s planning efforts from the beginning. The Vashon Senior Center’s board recently voted to adopt the program, which will launch Nov. 4, said Ava Apple, the senior center’s director. A training session for prospective volunteers will take place next week, and more volunteers are welcome. As of last week, five people had signed up, and Apple said she is hoping for a dozen volunteers to begin the program. Neighbor to Neighbor was initiated in early 2011, when an island caregiver called a group of women together after seeing seniors contend with problems that she thought volunteers could solve. Indeed, island seniors have a large need for assistance, said Apple, who also has been part of developing Neighbor to Neighbor from its earliest stages.

“There is not a month that goes by that I don’t get several calls for help that is not out there — as simple as hanging a shower curtain or changing a lightbulb,� Apple said. “Those small things snowball, and before you know it, they are looking at moving off-island to assisted living or a retirement community.� In fact, Amiad said, the Neighbor to Neighbor board spent considerable time determining just what island seniors’ needs are and even conducted a survey in 2011. More than 400 Vashon residents responded to the survey, Apple said, and three issues ranked as top concerns for aging on the island: upkeep of property, isolation and transportation. These are solvable problems, Apple noted, and meeting the challenges can help islanders “age in place,� as many are now calling the trend of living at home in one’s senior years. “Volunteers with Neighbor to Neighbor should be able to address these concerns,� she said. “Isolation is as simple as a phone call. Almost any volunteer could pick up the phone every other day and call.� People 55 and older are eligible for the program, Apple said, and she expects many people will benefit, including those recovering from illness and needing assistance with yard work, for example, or seniors who need occasional help with household tasks, errands or on-island transportation. But the program is not intended to replace more permanent or professional assistance. “We are not going to put any housekeeper, caregivers, handymen or gardeners out of work,� she said. Volunteers 18 and older are welcome, as are children with their parents. Apple said she hopes islanders with a variety of skills will step forward, including those with good repair skills, technology wizards and those who could simply visit with someone. “Everyone has something that they can give,� she said. Islander Debra Taylor recently became involved in Neighbor to Neighbor and plans to volunteer after serving in a similar capacity in Ohio. The work is a valuable to service to the community, she said, and brings rewards all around. “It made a difference for the individuals, and I became involved in their families,� she added. “It gave more to me than I gave to them.� Volunteers will undergo background checks, and Apple said she will also obtain driving records of those who will provide transportation. Part of next week’s training will be given over to a CPR class that Vashon Island Fire & Rescue will provide free to five volunteers, with the other volunteers set receive that training later. All the volunteers will

receive training in confidentiality, what to expect when visiting an elder, listening skills, handling wheelchairs and walkers and noticing potential red flags that more assistance might be needed. Once volunteers start helping, Apple said she believes the initial connections will bloom. “I anticipate that the relationship between volunteer and elder will take on a life of its own,� she said. “The island is a perfect place for something like this to work.� Neighbor to Neighbor is based in part on the Village to Village Network, which has more than 100 so-called villages in four countries and more than 100 more being organized, all aimed at providing support to seniors and helping them remain in their homes. As the island group developed Neighbor to Neighbor, Apple said, they consulted with Village to Village groups, including one in Seattle. Typically, Apple said, seniors pay between $300 and $600 dollars to be a part of the program, but the developers of Neighbor to Neighbor wanted its services to be free and accessible to anyone, regardless of their financial means. To that end, Amiad raised roughly $5,000 to fund the program through the end of the year, she said, which will cover Apple’s salary for 10 hours a week. Granny’s Attic recently awarded the senior center a $6,000 grant to fund the program for first half of 2014 and will provide an additional $6,000 if the program meets certain benchmarks. Apple expressed gratitude for the Granny’s gift, especially since as a new organization, Neighbor to Neighbor does not yet have a track record. “The support of Granny’s, that’s huge,� she said. Also important, Amiad said, is that the program now belongs to the Vashon Senior Center. As they researched other groups, the founders learned that many of the groups that were successful were associated with a senior center or other social service agency. “Our goal all along was to marry ourselves to the senior center, which is where it belonged,� Amiad said. For some time, the senior center did not have the capacity to carry the program, Apple said, but earlier this year, she felt ready to take it on and after years of working on it in a volunteer capacity, is pleased to launch the program. “I think this is going to be really successful,� she said. To volunteer for Neighbor to Neighbor, sign up for services or get more information, call Ava Apple at the Vashon Senior Center at 463-5173. A volunteer training session will take place on Saturday, Oct. 19.

Ferry service came to a halt between Vashon and Point Defiance on Saturday because of a potential bomb scare at the Tacoma ferry terminal. A 48-year-old Vashon man, believed to be mentally ill, was taken into custody, and authorities will soon determine if he will be charged, according to a press release from the King County Sheriff’s Office. Authorities stopped ferry traffic about 11:15 a.m. Saturday after a witness reported overhearing the man rambling about having explosives and wanting to detonate them after a particular car disembarked the boat. The King County Sheriff’s Office also began receiving calls about a man at the Talequah Ferry Terminal carrying a broom around and talking about killing all of the rats.

Multiple callers reported various suspicious and disturbing behaviors from the Vashon man, the sheriff’s office press release said. The Tacoma News Tribune reported that King County Sheriff’s deputies know the man and are aware of his mental health status. The State Patrol and a K-9 unit swept the terminal and ferry and deemed them safe. Ferry travel resumed at about 4 p.m. While the south end ferry was shut down, traffic was heavier than normal at the north end of the island. No further details about the incident were available at press time. — Susan Riemer

Agriculture commission visits to hear from islanders Several members of King County’s Agriculture Commission will come to Vashon this week to discuss a variety of topics related to farming on the island. Islanders interested in agriculture are encouraged to attend the meeting, which is part of the commission’s biennial visit to Vashon to reach out to the island’s agricultural community. The Thursday evening meeting will include a variety of noteworthy agenda items. At 5:45 p.m. there will be a discussion of possible uses of the former Misty Isle property and farmland preservation on Vashon with Tom Dean, the executive director of the

Vashon-Maury Island Land Trust. Dean has been working with a group for several months to determine if the 500-acre property could be purchased, preserved and transformed into a multi-use site, a large portion of which would be agricultural. He will answer questions about that potential project, he said, and noted that he is open to other community farming possibilities as well. A discussion of the 2013 King County Agricultural Land Use Survey will follow at 6:10 p.m., and at 6:30 p.m., there will be a presentation about the Salmon Safe Farms program. This program certifies a variety of foods

Farms must follow set practices to receive the certification, which boosts environmental stewardship and serves as a marketing tool. At 7 p.m., a discussion with the Vashon Island Growers Association is intended to help the commissioners learn about what is happening on Vashon agriculturally and how the county might help address challenges island farmers face. The meeting will be from 5:30 to 8:30 p.m. Thursday at the Land Trust Building. — Susan Riemer

Know what’s in your food, vote ‘yes’ on I-522

Caring for our own: an invaluable service

Do you know what’s in your breakfast cereal? Do you want to choose what you eat? That’s what’s at stake in I-522, on the ballot soon to arrive in your mailbox. I-522 would require food containing genetically engineered ingredients to be labeled, so you can choose whether to eat it or feed it to your family. Genetically engineered or GE organisms are produced when genetic information is manipulated using laboratory techniques, adding genes that did not develop inside that organism. Genetic engineering is a new process, very different from traditional plant breeding that farmers and gardeners have done for 10,000 years. Common genetically engineered ingredients are corn, soybeans and sugar beets. Most of the processed foods in the grocery store, like soda, soup, cereal, crackers, candy and thousands of other products, are made from GE sources. (Food labeled USDA Organic does not contain GE ingredients.) Maybe you’re comfortable with genetically engineered food and feel that it’s a great thing for most of our food to be made from plants and animals that have been manipulated in laboratories. If so, clear labels will make it easy to choose the GE food you prefer, so vote for 522. Or perhaps you have concerns about genetic engineering. Some of us have health questions, based on long-term animal studies that show chronic health problems associated with these crops. GE foods have been approved for sale without long-term human health studies. If you feel that these foods need more careful study, vote for 522 and you can decide whether they are safe enough for your own family. Many of us are concerned about exposure to toxic chemicals in our food and our environment.

As Americans live longer, healthier lives and technology keeps the elderly better connected, more seniors are putting off moving to care centers and staying put in their golden years. Aging in place has become a trend — so much so that there’s now a National Aging in Place Council, a National Aging in Place Week (next week) and countless public and private groups committed to helping seniors stay at home if they wish to do so. On Vashon, aging in place comes with its own set of challenges. Many homes are in isolated locations, hospitals While the island’s aren’t easily accessible, population has remained transportation can be relatively steady, we tricky, affordable housing are becoming an older options are limited and community. we lack the population to support significant homebased support services. While the island’s population has remained relatively steady, we are becoming an older community. According U.S. Census results, the median age on Vashon leapt from about 44 in 2000 to 50.2 in 2010. The island is home to a highly regarded residential care center, qualified caregivers, a senior center that offers valuable services and programs and nonprofits that provide social services that benefit seniors. But as baby boomers age, our elderly population grows and more choose to stay in their homes for longer, we imagine the need to support seniors here — especially those with limited means — will only grow. In 2011, a group of Vashon women who felt that not all island seniors were getting their needs met attempted to organize a solution to help the elderly live in their island homes more easily and ensure no one fell through the cracks. Thanks to the support of the Vashon Senior Center and a generous grant from Granny’s Attic, this important effort will soon be under way. Aging at home has been found to provide psychological, financial and health benefits, and those who go that route rely less on expensive residential care and government subsidies. We believe the whole community benefits when seniors retain their independence and take care of themselves for as long as they can. Towns and cities across the country have realized that with a helping hand with some basic tasks, some seniors can stay at home for years longer than they would have otherwise. Helping elders with chores or driving them to an appointment may not be a glamorous volunteer job, but it’s an important one. Thanks to Neighbor to Neighbor, small volunteer efforts can now go far in helping islanders maintain their health and independence. We’re glad islanders are reaching out to a part of our population that can be overlooked, and we hope they find the volunteer base to make their project sustainable.

ELECTION By MARGOT BOYER We know that common GE crops like RoundupReady corn, genetically engineered to withstand spraying with glyphosate herbicide, have led to heavier use of this product. The Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) estimated the annual use of glyphosate at over 200 million pounds in 2007 and this year actually increased the amount of glyphosate residue that is allowed in our food. If you think that increasing the amount of pesticide we eat might be a bad idea, vote for 522. Those of us who like local food notice that when big corporations like Monsanto control seeds, fewer varieties are available for farmers and gardeners. On Vashon, we’re blessed with a network of local farmers who grow delicious and nourishing food in our rocky soil. We know the importance of healthy soil, flourishing ecosystems and genetic diversity in seeds. The old seed varieties, developed by farmers through traditional plant breeding, offer a wide array of traits that help plants grow even in difficult conditions such as drought, heat or flood. These crops need to be grown out regularly so they will continue to be available when needed. When our food seeds are controlled by just a few companies,

LETTER TO THE EDITOR Thriftway

Consider the benefits of our local store Over the years, I’ve heard criticisms of Thriftway which deserve closer consideration. Let’s take price. Are Thriftway prices higher than elsewhere? Compared to Walmart, Target, or

Safeway ... perhaps. However, the West Seattle Thriftway and PCC are often more expensive. Whole Foods, absolutely. Metropolitan Market – yikes! Only Trader Joe’s is consistently lower, but their produce doesn’t thrill me. And Costco can’t beat our Thriftway’s frequently discounted Tillamook cheese! In 2009, as the global economic collapse expanded

the seed that carries those adaptive traits can disappear rapidly. We’ve lost more than 90 percent of the unique seed varieties that were available in 1903; instead we have fewer varieties of seed grown on thousands of acres of land. If you want your children and grandchildren to have a variety of food to choose from, vote for 522. When we choose what to eat, we are also choosing a food system. Opponents of 522 — Monsanto, DuPont, Bayer, Dow, and the Grocery Manufacturer’s Association — want our food system to depend on giant industrial farms and a narrow range of GE crops heavily sprayed with fertilizers, pesticides and herbicides. It’s no accident that three of these top-five contributors are chemical companies; they make more money when GE crops are dominant. Supporters of 522 envision a food system with farms of all sizes, raising many different crops, using the amazing varieties of edible plants and heirloom breeds that our ancestors developed through the generations. Such a diverse and locally-controlled food supply is a foundation of democracy. It’s the basis for a healthy economy, with decent jobs in rural communities like ours, as well as towns and cities. A diverse food system can give us the resilience to make it through hard times. It’s a resource that we can depend on. We can choose what we want to eat and what kind of world we want to live in. Vote yes on I-522.

Wednesday, October 9, 2013 • Vashon-Maury Island Beachcomber

(brought on intentionally by deregulation and scams), our income dropped by 32.1 percent. Struggling with this new budget, I really appreciate Thriftway’s consistent deals on fresh produce. I love their customer service, and trust me, I speak up regularly. I love their reduced-price meat and breads shelf and early summer ice cream deals. Their GMO-free shelf labels are already increasing my consumer-right-to-know, even as I work for I-522 to pass. We all grew up with artificially lowered food prices. So, let’s remember that environmental changes, mono-cropping, skyrocketing oil prices, honeybee colony collapse and other human errors are only leading us back to realistic food prices. Truly, local food resources = freedom and independence. Plant fruitbearing shrubs and ground covers, fruit and nutbearing trees, garden with a friend, and support your neighborhood chicken farmer. Forage in the forest with your children, dry, freeze, and can nature’s bounty. We are all living under stress, and that stress is likely to grow in the years to come.  Now is the time to cultivate our ability to see the silver lining, notice someone’s best effort and appreciate what’s going well. There may always be something to complain about, but there will always be infinitely more for which we can feel gratitude. — March Twisdale

Islanders must speak up soon for quality service The good news: In 2014 Washington State Ferries will permanently replace the 87-car Klahowya on the Vashon-FauntleroySouthworth run with an Issaquah-class, 124-car ferry. The bad news: We may not benefit from that extra capacity unless significant changes are made at the Fauntleroy dock. Even occasional users of the often-behind-schedule triangle route know that the majority of its problems can be traced to loading and unloading the boats at Fauntleroy. Traffic congestion, the bottleneck at the toll booths and larger boats with a short time scheduled in the slip all contribute to the difficulty of sending out fully loaded ferries in a timely manner. While Washington State Ferries officials acknowledge these problems, they have repeatedly refused to attempt remedies suggested by your ferry advocates. The solution to these problems was actually employed at Fauntleroy in the not-too-distant past. Until the position was defunded by the Legislature a couple of years ago, a state trooper directed traffic at peak hours, stopping traffic on Fauntleroy Way, which enabled ferries to empty rapidly and cars to begin loading immediately. This also left the two exit lanes open to be loaded with ticketed cars much more quickly than they are today. We need the cop back. Faunt-leroy ticket

FERRIES By GREG BEARDSLEY takers used to collect colored tickets; now they wield barcodescanning guns. When the tickets were paper, a ticket taker often stood near the street, sending pre-ticketed cars around the tollbooth. They can’t do that today. Transactions now take more time and concentration, and ticket takers process fewer cars. The logjam at the tollbooth is one of the primary obstacles today to getting drivers with tickets in hand onto the boats. WSF should add a ticket taker to direct ticketed cars around the booths again. Now, as WSF prepares to add another 124-car ferry in the fall of 2014, they say the way to avoid falling off schedule is to drop several sailings and spread out the schedule. They say they have no choice because the two large boats will take too long to load and unload. Ironically, the triangle route has operated with two Issaquah-class boats in the past, when we had a police officer directing traffic and ticket takers who helped ticketed drivers bypass the tollbooths. On-time records were vastly better than they are now.

It may be easier to understand WSF’s stance if we understand what Vashon ferry advocates believe to be their motivation. A couple of years ago, a law was enacted principally to compel the San Juan ferry to run on schedule. But the law was worded so all ferry routes must now comply with new ontime parameters — even our complex triangle route. By law, ferry captains must write a report explaining all late departures. We believe they don’t want to file those long reports or get called on the carpet for late boats, so ferries often leave before fully loaded because ticketed cars can’t get onto the dock. Riders want the boats to leave full — WSF doesn’t want to be late. WSF is preparing a new, spread-out schedule that they think will keep them from running behind on the triangle route when the new boat is added. The schedule is still being

developed, but it is safe to say that WSF is determined to stay on time at all costs, whether it is in the best interests of its customers — you and me — or not. When we (ferry advocates) compared the current schedule to a draft of WSF’s proposed schedule, we found that capacity during most of the morning commute and through the afternoon commute would run at a deficit compared to the current schedule. Wait times would increase, on both sides of the water. Despite acquiring a second boat with much more capacity than the one it replaces, by 7:15 a.m., ferries bound for Fauntleroy from the north-end dock would run at a projected deficit of 75 cars compared to the cars that are now allocated. It will be like losing one Klahowya crossing (87 cars) in the morning. Every day. In the currently proposed version of the schedule, the 4:40 and 8:05 p.m.

ferries from Fauntleroy to Vashon would simply be deleted. Every day. We believe that if the fundamental problems at Fauntleroy were solved as suggested, there would be no need for WSF to spread out the schedule. We would enjoy the benefits of a larger boat, with equal or greater capacity at all times of the day. We have pleaded with WSF to take these steps without success. We need your help. If we don’t protest loudly, we will get the schedule WSF envisions, without any attempt on their part to address the root problems. WSF officials will visit the island Oct. 26 for a meeting on this topic. In the meantime, if you’d like more information, including the current version of the proposed schedule, email us at ferryschedule2014@centurytel.net. — Greg Beardsley is the chair of Vashon’s Ferry Advisory Committee.

WHAT’S HAPPENING BLUES AT THE BIKE

A free night of music The Black River Blues Band will play the sounds of Chicago, Memphis, Mississippi and Texas at a free show at 8:30 p.m. Saturday at the Red Bicycle Bistro. Organizers say jazz, funk and rhythm and soul are thrown into the mix of the band’s music. The show is for all ages until 11 p.m. and 21 and older after that.

COMEDY FOR A CAUSE

A duo headlines a show A comedy night headlined by Dos Fallopia, a raucous comedy team that offers up LGBT and political humor, will take place at 7 p.m. Saturday at the Open Space for Arts & Community. The night is a benefit for The DoVE Project, Vashon’s anti-domestic violence program. Tickets to the show, $35, are available at the door. The night will be hosted by islanders Tami Brockway Joyce and Jennifer Sutherland, who will appear as their characters, The Famous Filson Sisters. Additional acts will include Duo Finelli, Drag Trio, Ubiquitous They, Chip & Margies, Monica Nevi and Best Seat in the House. Sally Koch and Peggy Platt, who perform as Dos Fallopia, travel the country performing sketch comedy mixed with musical interludes and elaborate setups that call for audience participation.

CELEBRATE DIGITAL

Vashon Theatre says thanks Vashon Theatre will offer a free screening of the 1947 Best Picture-winning film, “Gentlemen’s Agreement,” at 7 p.m. Saturday. The film screening is a thank you to everyone in the community who recently donated money to help the theater owners install a state-of-the-art digital projection system — a move made necessary by sweeping changes in the ways film companies distribute movies. Without the switch to digital — an upgrade that cost approximately $80,000 — the theater would have had to close its doors. The fundraising effort was spearheaded and assisted by Island GreenTech, a group of island residents who assist Vashon entrepreneurs on a pro-bono basis. Theater owner Eileen Wolcott said “Gentlemen’s Agreement,” starring Gregory Peck, was chosen for the celebration because it won a Best Picture Award at the Oscars the same year Vashon Theatre opened. The famous film director Elia Kazan, whose screenwriter son Nicholas Kazan resides parttime on Vashon, helmed the film. There will also be 1947 prices for popcorn and soda — 20 cents each — and complimentary beer and wine. The screening of “Gentlemen’s Agreement” is only one way that the theater owners are giving back to Vashon in response to the community donations for the digital upgrade. The theater is also now available on Tuesday evenings, free of charge, to community members who want to present events that educate and inspire islanders.

CHAMBER MUSIC SERIES BEGINS: A new season of chamber music on Vashon will begin at 7:30 p.m. Friday, Oct. 18, at the Blue Heron, in a concert filled with the music of Beethoven, Brahms and Prokofiev. It’s the first of six concerts in the series, helmed by local cellists and series’ artist directors Rowena Hammill and Douglas Davis.

ashon Allied Arts will launch a new season of its popular Arts & Humanities Series at 7 p.m. Sunday with a talk by awardwinning Anchorage Daily News journalist Tom Kizzia. Kizzia will discuss his new book, “Pilgrim’s Wilderness: A True Story of Faith and Madness on the Alaska Frontier.” The book tells the fascinating and harrowing tale of a charismatic Alaskan settler named Papa Pilgrim, who in 2002 arrived with his wife and 15 children to settle deep in Alaska’s backcountry, bulldozing through 13 miles of pristine wilderness to set up a homestead on protected land. For Kizzia, what began as a newspaper chronicle of one family’s fight against the National Park Service soon morphed into an epic book about a cult-like family, led by an abusive and duplicitous man who presented himself as a God-fearing Christian, oldtimey musician and self-sufficient mountain man. Papa Pilgrim, as it turned out, was actually a man named Robert Hale, who grew up the son of wealthy man in Texas, in a life threaded with strange connections to J. Edgar Hoover’s FBI, Texas governor John Connolly, Lee Harvey Oswald,

Leap now for ‘Cats’ tickets “Cats,” the blockbuster Broadway musical, is coming to town next week, courtesy of Drama Dock’s Youth Theatre Initiative. The production, directed by Elizabeth Ripley, features 41 island teens and young people taking part in all the furry fun of Andrew Lloyd Weber’s epic musical, based on “Old Possum’s Book of Practical Cats,” by T. S. Eliot. The show, through music, dance and theatrical spectacle, tells the story of a wild tribe of cats called the Jellicles and includes the monster hit song, “Memory” as well as other showstoppers instantly familiar to musical theater fans. “Cats” will be performed at 7 p.m. Friday and Saturday, Oct. 18 and 19, and 2 p.m. Sunday Oct. 20, at the Vashon High School theater. Tickets, $15 general admission, $10 for Drama Dock members and $5 for youth and seniors, are on sale now at the Vashon Bookshop. The show is expected to sell out.

Island singer, songwriter and guitar god Ian Moore will unplug his mighty axe for a solo acoustic concert at 8 p.m. Saturday at the Blue Heron. Moore, who came of age in the fertile Austin, Texas, music scene, does occaisional shows on Vashon, but spends much of his time on a hectic tour schedule, crisscrossing the country playing with his band, the Lossy Coils. Moore’s music can’t be pinned down to a specific genre — rythmn and blues, soul, rock, and pop are all a part of his sound. He sings a mean traditional country song, too. He’s a superb raconteur, with stories to tell about sharing the stage with the likes of Willie Nelson and bumping into legends such as Sly Stone in clubs. Moore has had a long and storied career in music, earning a raft of ecstatic reviews for his recordings and live performances through the years. Early in his career, he played with Joe Ely and crossed paths with such musical icons as Bob Dylan, the Rolling Stones, ZZ Top, Daniel Lanois and Ice Cube. More recently, he’s backed up Roky Erickson and Jason Mraz. Currently, he and island composer Jason Staczek write music for film, television, radio, internet and live performance through their business, Madrona Music. Tickets to the show are $14 for Vashon

A fitness craze takes hold, and everyone is invited to dance along By ELIZABETH SHEPHERD Staff Writer

On a recent foggy Friday morning, an islander arrived at the Vashon Dance Academy for a 9 a.m. Zumba dance fitness class. Her purpose there was to investigate and then write about the phenomenon of the exercise craze’s popularity on Vashon — an effort that was, for her, a bit of a stretch, in more ways than one. The Zumba virgin, a 50-something, slightly overweight woman who has been outspoken about her dislike of breaking a sweat, figured taking the class might be the closest she’d ever come to gonzo journalism. To heighten the challenge, she’d stayed out late the night before, returning to Vashon on a 12:55 a.m. boat after a night spent indulging in the cerebral pleasure of an obscure indie film. The class, surprisingly to the visitor but certainly not to the other 15 diehard Zumba fans in the room, turned out to be an utter delight. The instructor, a small, pretty and yet incredibly fitlooking woman named Claudine Kim-Murphy, began the session by ringing a small bell and sharing a quote from author Shel Silverstein that ended with an exhortation to “dance across the kitchen floor.” Then the music started, and for the next hour, the class participants — a group that included people of many different ages and body shapes — shimmied and stepped across the floor to a high-spirited combination of hiphop, samba, salsa, merengue and mambo music. When the class was over, all of the dancers, the exercise-adverse

Deena Eber, who takes Zumba classes three times a week, said that the regime has made her feel joyful. “I’m 70 years old, and I can bounce again,” she said. “I have my jump back, which was something I thought I had lost years ago.” Another dancer, Niamh Prince, said that taking the classes five days a week had also made a huge difference

to her. “It’s really changed my life and my body,” she said. Zumba has taken a firm hold on the island, with classes being offered seven days a week, at Ober Park, Vashon Dance Center and the Vashon Athletic Club. In all, Vashon has six Zumba instructors, and they will all come together next week for a benefit, Zumba for The DoVE Project, at 6 p.m. Friday at the Vashon Dance Academy. Admission is $15. The DoVE Project is Vashon’s anti-domestic violence organization. The benefit — arranged by three of the teachers, KimMurphy, Dari Haffie and Sara Van Fleet — is a chance for both Zumba aficionados and newbies to check out the styles of all the different Zumba instructors on Vashon, as well as support a local cause that aims to empower women. The benefit, the organizers said, will be the first of several they plan to offer to the community. Who knows? The jaded reporter might even show up for the event. After coming home from the class, she stood in her kitchen, and with no one watching, jumped into the air. She was amazed by how far her feet came off the floor.

For more information on Zumba on Vashon, contact Claudine Kim-Murphy, Dari Haffie and Sara Van Fleet at vashonzumba@gmail.com, or call the Vashon Athletic Club at 463-5601. Zumba to benefit DoVE will meet from 6 to 7:15 p.m. Friday at the Vashon Dance Academy. A $15 donation is suggested.

Pirate girls rise to the Big plays fuel Port Townsend win on the field top again at home meet Team honors former Coming off a first-place win at their last league meet, the VHS girls cross country team took second place at a meet on their home turf on Tuesday, Oct. 1. Vashon hosted the meet for seven league schools on a 5k that course incorporated all three of Vashon’s school campuses and the surrounding woods. The threatened downpour held off for much of the meet, making a short appearance during the varsity boys’ race. McMurray Middle Schooler Clara Atwell placed first in the 2k middle school girls’ race. The varsity girls took second place overall of five girls teams with 50 team points to first-place Eatonville’s 42. The girls easily edged out third-place Cedar Park Christian, which had 62 points. The boys varsity team placed sixth of eight teams at the meet, beating out Life Christian and Cascade Christian. Cedar Park

The Redskins wasted no time exploding onto the field at last Friday’s home football game. Within the first 33 seconds of play, Port Townsend’s Matt Cain ran past the entire Pirate defense for a 55-yard touchdown. The Redskins used their ground game to pound the ball down field, scoring on the next two drives. The second quarter continued at the same grueling pace as the Redskins converted a Pirate drive into another touchdown. Vashon threatened briefly to swing the momentum when a 12-play drive brought them into Redskin territory. An interception at the 3-yard line was run back 97 yards for another Port Townsend touchdown. The Redskins led, 35-0. Following halftime, the Pirates continued to struggle with their reads and tackling in the second half. Sophomore quarterback Sam Schoenberg made valiant efforts against the Redskins’ swarming defense, but he was under constant pressure and had trouble getting the ball to his receivers. Senior Garrett Starr, returning from an early season injury, managed to keep his hands on several short passes despite being heavily covered. The Pirates slowly moved forward for 14 plays, grinding through the middle of the Port Townsend line. Junior Winter Krimmert carried a defender behind him as he ran over the goal line for the first Pirate score. The Redskins answered back with two more touchdowns. The Pirates held onto the ball for the last 10 minutes, ending another 14-play drive with a touchdown pass to senior Evan Anderson in the final minute of play.

Jason Chorak addressed the crowd on Friday night, telling those gathered it was an honor of have his number retired, along with that of fellow Pirate Robert Bennedsen. Despite Vashon’s strong ending, the Redskins had an insurmountable 48-14 lead as the clock ran out. Coach Kelvin Goliday referred to the mistakes made on the field last Friday as “mental errors” and said his staff will put more emphasis on addressing them by working on game conditions. “I know we are on the cusp of being a better team. It’s just a matter of being more mentally prepared,” he said. During Friday’s halftime, Jason Chorak, a 1993 Vashon High School graduate, was honored when his number 43 football jersey was retired. John Green, who was the head football coach at the time Chorak played for the Pirates, presided over the ceremony, praising Chorak as a player who was “big and fast, who completed and played hard,” he said. During Chorak’s high school years, he was recognized by achieving All-Nisqually League, All-State and All-American. Recruited by sev-

eral top universities, Chorak chose the University of Washington, where he also played football with distinction. He went on to have a brief career in the NFL. “If you think you can’t fulfill your dream if you come from a small school, Jason has proved that isn’t true,” Green said. In a brief speech, Chorak said he felt priviledged to have his football jersey and number be retired, like that of Robert Bennedsen, a VHS player and graduate who was killed in action while serving in Afghanistan in 2010. “For my number to be here with his is a great honor,” Chorak said. “Go Pirates.” The Pirates will meet Charles Wright Academy for their Homecoming game this Friday at 7 p.m. A senior recognition ceremony will precede the game. — Cheryl Cochrane is the mother of a Pirate football player.

Two victories on the home pitch move Pirates into third place The girls face two opponents this week By KELLY McEACHERN For The Beachcomber

The Pirate girls soccer team took on three more Nisqually foes last week, including games at league leader Eatonville and home against Chimicum and Cedar Park Christian. Monday’s tilt against Eatonville quickly turned into a one-sided affair as the Cruisers scored three goals in the first 10 minutes on a rain-soaked field. The trend continued throughout the game as the Vashon girls appeared a step too slow at each position, and Eatonville won going away, 7-0. The home portion of the schedule brought happier results as the Pirates easily dispatched mid-week opponent Chimicum. The Cowgirls played with their usual upbeat attitude and great sportsmanship even as the Vashon squad racked up 12 unanswered goals. Led by Llira McEachern’s hat trick, the goal scorers included Camille Deguzman, Emily Browne, Maddie McEachern, Mira Jewell-Peterson, Hannah McArthur, Lauren Jenks, Ellen Chappelka, Michelle Raney and Katherine Andrus. Assists were provided by Llira, Camille, Maddie and Samatha Biro in the 12-0 final

goal when Andrus continued her run of nice play by finishing an assist from Llira McEachern for a 2-1 lead. Cedar Park responded with a goal on a gift free kick to bring it to a 2-2 at the end of regulation play. Though the teams had battled feverishly for 80 minutes, 10 more minutes awaited the exhausted sides in overtime. In the first five-minute overtime period, both teams were clearly fatigued and evenly matched. As time wound down in the second overtime period, it seemed the teams would tie for the second time this season. The Pirates took one last shot at a victory when Jewell-Peterson won a ball on the left touch line, and in a display of great effort and skill, eluded multiple Eagle defenders to find herself in the left side of the 18-yard box. Players from both teams flooded the area as she found Llira McEachern in front of the net for the game winner with less than a minute remaining. The Pirates wildly celebrated a hardearned victory and sole possession of third place as time expired. The 5-2-2 Pirates faced Cascade Christian Tuesday night after press time. They travel to Charles Wright on Thursday.

MOTORCYCLE CONTINUED FROM 1

Holmes, who has lived on Vashon since 1970, worked in the mental health field for 10 years and public and private education for 25 years. He finished his career as an elementary school counselor at the Highline School District before retiring five years ago. Four years into his retirement, he bought a motorcycle on an impulse. “It was the right bike; I bought it. Then I realized I was committed,” he said with a laugh. The bike, a used BMW 1150 GS, fit the bill for this adventure. It would work well in off-road and extreme conditions, was higher off the ground than a standard street bike, which would ensure better ground clearance, and had special tires that could withstand many miles of rough terrain. Four months later and 56 years since the adventure first took shape in his mind, he was ready to go. Taking a couple of extra gas cans and only what he could pack in to two aluminum panniers on the bike, including camera and camping equipment, about $4,000

WWW.VASHONBEACHCOMBER.COM

in cash, a GPS, laptop computer and his cell phone, Holmes set off, beginning his ride in Canada and stopping back at his home on Vashon before heading south. Taking the scenic routes, Holmes saw many local riders but didn’t see other motorcyclists traveling until he’d reached the southern end of Mexico, which surprised him, he said. “I thought I’d run in to others doing the same thing I was, but I was pretty much on my own until the Mexico-Guatemala border,” he said. One place he did run in to quite a few other traveling bikers was the Darién Gap, the large swath of undeveloped jungle that separates Panama from Columbia. The gap is often referred to as the missing link of the Pan-American Highway since it is essentially impassable. “With a motorbike, you really only have two choices there,” he said. “You can put it on a plane and fly it over, or you can put it on a boat.” He and about a dozen other bikers reserved spots on the same 100-year-old sailboat to make the trip to Bogotá, Columbia. Holmes did have company for at least one month of the trip when his girlfriend, with replacement tires for the bike in hand, flew down to join him on the ride from

Ecuador to Peru. Holmes describes his journey as surprisingly smooth overall. While on the road, he stayed in hostels or camped most nights, never got sick and broke down only once. Along the way, he reconnected with a man he’d studied with in Argentina 40 years ago, who now has a sheep ranch in Patagonia. And while border crossings on the bike were complicated and time consuming, the biggest trouble he encountered was when his cell phone was pick-pocketed. “Before I left, quite a few of my friends asked me if I was taking a gun,” he said. “I’m not a gun person, and I really didn’t feel like that would be necessary.” Perhaps the biggest surprise of Holmes’ story came at the end, when he stopped at a cafe on his way from Tierra del Fuego to Buenos Aires. Holmes struck up a conversation with a man and woman at the restaurant and told the couple about his trip. He explained that he hadn’t met a riding partner to make the return trip with, as he had hoped, and thought that while in Buenos Aires he may stay a while instead and learn to Tango. As if on cue, the man pulled out his cell phone to show Holmes photos of himself dancing. As it turned out, he was a worldclass Latin Dance champion. Holmes spent the next three weeks in

Buenos Aires taking Tango classes with the expert he met at the cafe before shipping his bike home and flying back to the United States. Looking back, Holmes said that the biggest challenge of the trip was the desolation he sometimes experienced. At times, he was 50 miles from the nearest person, he said, and gas stations could be 300 miles apart. “I had to carry extra gas,” he explained. “If I fell and couldn’t lift the bike or if I got a nail in my tire, it was a long wait for help.” Still, Holmes said he would like to make the trip again, though he’s not certain that he’ll be able to, as growing older begins to take a toll. “Energy is a factor, physical shape. You have to be able to sleep in a different situation every night. ... It’s very hard on the body,” he said. “But I would like to.” In the works right now is a plan to take his son and his family to Ecuador in February. He added with a wry smile, “No bike this time.”

SOIL CONTINUED FROM 1

of Maury Island (an area that extends as far north as S.W. 260th Street) and the southern tip of Vashon. A map put out by the DOE last year shows that another area that includes the rest of Maury Island and a large portion of Vashon could contain high arsenic levels as well, but Aoyagi said the state needs to do more soil sampling there to better understand the extent of the contamination, something that won’t happen for another year or two. Homeowners in those areas won’t be contacted by the state for now, but can request that sampling be done and could be eligible for cleanup in the future. “There’s a pretty large area we marked as needing more sampling,” Aoyagi said. “We don’t want to rule people out of the program, but we know where we need to go first and what the priority is.” Letters about the yard sampling and cleanup program have gone out to about 350 residences, said Amy Hargrove, a coordinator with DOE’s Yard Cleanup Program. The state will soon mail letters to the remaining 350 homes, and DOE representatives will go door-to-door to talk about the

program as well. Those who opt to participate will have up to four areas of their property that are frequently used — yards, footpaths, gardens or playgrounds — tested for arsenic, and soil with arsenic levels of over 90 parts per million will be eligible for the cleanup, Hargrove said. As soon as next summer, the state will remove the top 12 inches of soil in contaminated areas and replace it with fresh dirt, also replacing grass or other foliage removed in the process. “Basically we’re trying to replace what people had before, within reason,” Aoyagi said. The state has already performed such cleanups at some island parks and childcare centers and for years has run an educational program that encourages homeowners to use caution when dealing with soil. Denise Katz, a real estate agent for Windermere, said she recently heard from a client in Dockton who received a letter about the yard cleanup program and was concerned about how it may impact her ability to sell her home. Katz, who then consulted two attorneys on the matter, said the letter would have to be disclosed in any real estate transaction, as would any information obtained through testing. At the same time, she said, she didn’t think sellers should be concerned. Soil contamination on Vashon and Maury has been known of for decades, she said, and agents

haven’t seen it affect home sales. “The bottom line is testing is probably the right thing to do because it would make sense,” Katz said. Emma Amiad, another local real estate agent, concurred. “We’ve known about arsenic since the 60s, and it didn’t affect real estate issues,” she said. Amiad frequently talks with clients about the pollution from Asarco, she said, and encourages them to have soil testing done if they have concerns. At the same time, she said, she encourages them to research the issue, as she believes there’s no proof that the arsenic-laced soil poses a health risk. So far, she said, higher rates of illness haven’t shown up on Vashon or in the 1,000-square-mile area identified as having some level of contamination from the Asarco smelter’s toxic plume. “I’m not saying arsenic isn’t a problem. We all sort of agree this is probably a problem, but we have no science,” she said. Aoyagi said that while no local health trends have been tied to the Asarco contamination, the state takes the issue seriously and uses conservative data to estimate risk. Longterm exposure to arsenic and lead — which is also found in contaminated soil — is known to increase the risk for certain types of cancer, heart disease, diabetes and other chronic health problems. Officials believe the risk would be highest for those who are frequently exposed to and ingest soil, primarily children. “It’s a really difficult message,” Aoyagi said. As for Lund, on Maury, she said she’ll go for the free cleanup if her property qualifies, but she’s known about the potential pollution for years and hasn’t been concerned. She is careful to wash her hands after she works in the yard, something she noted that she would do anyway, and when she and her husband planted a garden, they created raised beds with fresh soil. “You work around it,” she said.

Vashon College: The buildings are gone, but its legacy remains intact By BRUCE HAULMAN & TERRY DONNELY For The Beachcomber

With the arrival of the railroad in 1883, the Puget Sound region rapidly grew and began the move to what historian Carlos Schwantes termed the “post-frontier world.” Vashon was part of this change as settlers developed towns, businesses, schools, clubs and organizations, and in 1892 built Vashon College on the hillside to the west of Burton. Miles Hatch, an early island entrepreneur and the founder of Burton, spearheaded a group that formed Vashon College, hired A.C. Jones as its first president and began constructing the campus on land Hatch donated. The first building was Old Main, a four-story building with 46 rooms used as classrooms, offices, student residences and a dining hall. Old Main is seen on the left in the 1901 photograph. The three-story Commercial Building (in the center of the 1901 photograph) was added in 1894 with classrooms and residences for 90 young men and was expanded in 1898. The Armory (to the right in the 1901 photograph) was added in 1901 and was the largest drill hall in the state at that time. The building to the far right of the photograph is the Burton Methodist Church. None of these buildings remain today. Vashon College was founded as a nondenominational Christian college for “young people of both sexes” who were of “good moral character.” The college advertised itself as “safely removed from the temptations and evil associations of large cities.” The early college catalogs proudly announced “There are no saloons, gambling houses, dance halls, or other place of evil influence within eight miles of Vashon College.” “Not a drop of liquor is for sale on the island.” And that “The use of tobacco, intoxicants and private card playing are positively forbidden.” The college was one of the first 10 colleges founded in the state, and along with the University of Washington, the College of Puget Sound, Whitworth College and Washington Agriculture College (WSU), formed The Western Washington Intercollegiate Athletic Association in 1893. Vashon College had men’s and women’s basketball teams, track and field teams and in 1895 played football twice against the University of Washington, losing 44-4 on Nov. 9, and then again losing 34-0 on Dec. 7. The founding faculty in 1892 included A.C. Jones, president; Anna Farrow, matron; Nora A. Gilmour, librarian; O.S. Van Olinda, stenography; L.P. Venen, languages and higher math; A.C. Jones, elocution; D.E. Crandall, commercial; Cora Teatt, music; and W.H.P. Redinger, military tactics. The college formed a successful cadet corps, which led to the construction of the Armory in 1901. The cost to attend Vashon College was modest, even by 1890 standards, with tuition for a 15-week semester in 1896 costing $22.50 ($593.00 in 2010 dollars) and tuition, room, board, heating and lighting costing $72 for 15 weeks ($1,900 in 2010 dollars). In 1906 there was a dormitory fire in the Commercial Building that began the slow death of Vashon College.

Vashon-Maury Island Heritage Association

The buildings of Vashon College were nestled on a Burton hillside in 1901.

Terry Donnelly

Following fires two decades apart, the buildings were leveled, and houses, shown in this 2010, photo now line the beach. Decreased enrollments, competition from more easily accessed mainland colleges and the opening of Burton High School, which drew away Academy students, all put financial pressure on the college. A crippling fire in November of 1910 destroyed Old Main, and the college never recovered. The Commercial Building and Armory were used in 1911 as a school for Chinese students, but in 1912 the college closed. The buildings sat empty for the next 20 years, with several unsuccessful attempts to open them as a tuberculosis sanatorium, until the Commercial Building burned in 1930. The buildings were then leveled and the site remained empty until houses began to be built on the old site in the 1940s. Today, the only remaining building from that era is the parsonage for the Burton Methodist Church, which sits just to the north of the corner of 106th Avenue S.W. and S.W. 238th Street. In 2006, Vashon College was reopened as a nonprofit educational organization using the original 1892 charter. The new Vashon College offers non-credit classes, includ-

ing Vashon 101 and Island Studies. In the 2010 photograph, the Old Mock Hotel building at the corner where Vashon Highway turns west along Burton Beach, and the white gable of the Masonic Hall/ Silverwood Gallery, are the only remaining visible landmarks. The Burton dock, the Methodist church and the college buildings are all gone. The Burton Methodist Church sat above and to the left of the hotel, and the Vashon College campus was on the hillside to the left of the church, now covered by trees and homes.

Vashon 101, a six session survey course examining the Vashon story in-depth and from multiple viewpoints, will be offered again this fall with classes beginning Tuesday, Oct. 15. Classes will be from 7 to 9 p.m. for six Tuesdays through Nov. 19. For more information or an application, visit www.vashoncollege.org/vashon101 or call Pamn Aspiri at 408-8022 for information.

C Warren Bibbins C. Warren Bibbins was born to Claude and Consuelo (Ramquist) Bibbins September 28, 1933 at their home in Burton, WA. Quartermaster Harbor, with Dr. McMurray in attendance. He lived all of his life on Vashon Island, where he died on September 20, 2013. From his years as a toddler, he spent weather and seasons permitting, either in the water or on the water of Puget Sound. This inborn affinity occupied more of his life for many decades, having sailed around the world three times on multi masted sea going sailing ships as a crewmember or able seaman. These adventures were interspersed with years working for Boeing as a machinist in the Wind Tunnel. While there, he saw areas where a simple machined tool would produce a better and time saving result. He designed and made several of these improvements, which Boeing recognized with awards. When he was a young teenager he received his first boat and a 5 horsepower Evinrude outboard motor. He soon found his interest in and ability for understanding the mechanics of outboards, how to improve and repair them. By his junior year of high school, he graduated to a 33 horsepower Evinrude and a 16’ Reinell ski boat. He spent many summer hours (when he wasn’t helping his parents in their greenhouses or working at Boeing) towing and teaching his two sisters, relatives and many neighborhood kids the art of water skiing. This sport he, along with Norman Stanley introduced to Vashon Island Inner Quartermaster Harbor. This took on a whole new advancement a few years later with a larger boat, which he built, and a more powerful Mercury outboard, making it possible to tow ten skiers at a time! In his early twenties, on an “old fashioned” slalom ski, he skied around Vashon-Maury Island, an anonymous person driving his boat. During his second year of college (now named Seattle Pacific University) he was drafted into the Army, stationed at Fort Hood, Texas for basic training. He served in the medical corps in Germany. While there, he bought a VW Bug, using leave time, along with several Army buddies to tour many European Countries. Several months before his enlistment period was completed he was returned back to the states, discharged, then home to Vashon Island and the waters of Puget Sound. Not wanting to be far from the “Tall Masters” and his ocean going days behind, he served one summer as a tour guide on the Balclutha, which was part of the San Francisco’s Maritime Museum. He had a similar job aboard the Monte Cristo, one of the ships he crewed on a year before, while it was docked for a short time in Port Angeles. He enjoyed celebrating July 4th with a sizeable fireworks display for all interested “Bay” residents to see and hear! For him the best part was waking everyone of the Inner Harbor at the crack of dawn to a stick of dynamite he would set off on a float in the middle of the bay. With the immigration of some Seattleites to the bay waterfront not approving of this, it soon ended, but gave way to the introduction of modified exhaust systems above water level of 25 horsepower outboards on the sterns of small hydros, several he built. Along with his neighbor and friend Roger Stanley, this became what now continues to be the annual July 4th “Around the Island boat race.” When he could no longer be a race participant, he always managed to make his way to the race launching area in the pre dawn hours to help younger race enthusiasts get off the starting line, waiting for the winner to return for the trophy. In his advanced “senior” years, he was happiest helping friends with their outboard motors, always seeming to have a spare part or two that would solve a contrary mechanical problem. Warren, all of us who knew you, from youth to old age, from calm waters to the surging waves of life, are sure going to miss you. We’ll remember all the good times. Look down on us July 4th 2014 when we rev up our motors for the next “Around the Island Boat Race”! No services will be held at Warren’s request and he will return to his beloved Puget Sound waters.

Born around 2011, Fisher was found hanging out near the high school fishing for some extra curricular activities. No one has claimed this boy. Since Fisher has been at VIPP we have found him to be very sweet boy with a wonderful personality. He can get overly excited in his play so he would be best with a family with older kids. Fisher does not do well with dogs. Fisher came to VIPP on 3/27/13.

Young Adult, Prince is one Prince of a cat. He came to VIPP in early September as a found cat. We put an APB out for his owner but no once has come to claim him. It is hard to fathom why an owner would not claim this guy. He is sweet and mellow and in great health. Prince is looking for a new throne where he can reign supreme over his domain. Prince came to VIPP on 9/7/13.
