A spacious, high-tech library is unveiled By NATALIE MARTIN Staff Writer
Hundreds of islanders flocked to the Vashon Library on Saturday, getting a first look at the newly renovated library, complete with large banks of windows, expanded spaces for meeting and working and features to appeal to those who have left the printed word behind for electronic devices. At a ceremony on Saturday morning, community leaders, including State Sen. Sharon Nelson, as well as officials with the King County Library System (KCLS), said a few words before a large ribbon was untied — not cut — and the doors to the new library were opened. “It was just packed,” said Jan Riley, who heads the local branch. The renovation, which has been in the works for years, was made possible by a $172 million bond King County voters approved in 2004 to build and modernize libraries around the county. The $6 million Vashon Library remodel expanded the building at Ober Park from SEE LIBRARY, 15

This weekend the Farmers Market will kick off its 2014 season with a new manager, new vendors and an eye on future possibilities. â€œItâ€™s very exciting,â€? said Jordan Beck, the marketâ€™s current manager. â€œThe market has some great developments happening and in the works this year.â€? Most notable is the recent hiring of islander Caleb Johns to fill the market manager position. Beck, who stepped in temporarily when the previous manager quit suddenly last year, plans to transition out of the job in May because she is due to have a baby in June. Beck explained that while some may have the impression that the market manager position is not a good job because of the high turnover rate in recent years, she attributes the recent vacancies to life circumstances, not issues with the job. â€œPeople want this job. We had at least 20 legiti-

the recent hiring process was rigorous and involved two rounds of interviews. Johns was VIGAâ€™s first choice for new manager, she said. â€œHeâ€™s brilliant. He has a lot of energy and heâ€™s systematic in his approach to things,â€? she said. â€œWe believe he has a skill set that will allow us to grow the market through social media, branding and knowing how to sell.â€? Johns, a restaurant management consultant at May Kitchen & Bar, was born and raised on Vashon and is the son of the late Geoff Johns, a well-known Vashon musician and educator who died last year, and stepson of Carol LutraJohns, a regular farmers market vendor herself.

â€œI am really excited about this,â€? Johns said. â€œIâ€™ve been considering this as something that Iâ€™d like to do for several years now, and this year I managed to work things out in the rest of my life so that it would work.â€? Johns, who has also worked at other restaurants, including Seattleâ€™s Metropolitan Grill, hopes that his experience in the hospitality industry proves helpful in his new role. â€œThe key is going to be working with the vendors and farmers to make every
market so that customers like to be there. I need to do what I can to make sure that everyone has support and whatever they need to make this happen,â€? he said. The market manager position is part-time, and Johns will continue to work at the restaurant. Both jobs offer f lexibility, which Johns says works well for his goals and for keeping his energy focused on the Vashon community. Along with a new manager, the market welcomes some new vendors this year, including Dragonâ€™s Head Cider and Laurieâ€™s Love Bars, which are food bars made from scratch and include nuts, seeds dried fruit and spices. VIGAâ€™s strategic planning committee has several items on its agenda for the coming months, with a high priority on expanding the marketâ€™s local customer base. On the horizon, Beck said, could be changes to the marketâ€™s physical space, be it a new structure or possibly a new location. There will be customer surveys available for community input. â€œThis is the early stage of looking at what will bring more local consumers to the market,â€? she said. â€œAnd that includes looking at our old space with fresh eyes. The market wants to hear directly from the community.â€?

Vendors collaborate to bring wedding and event business to the island Hoping to bring more off-island business to Vashon, a group of local merchants has banded together to bill Vashon as a destination wedding spot. About 40 island businesses first organized by Blooms & Things owner Carol Ahlfors are kicking off an effort to promote island vendors who offer wedding and event services. “We have a lot of talent here on the island,” Ahlfors said, explaining that there are a growing number of wedding- and event-related business on Vashon, but they haven’t worked together much. Recently two larger wedding venues opened as well, expanding opportunities for larger events on the island. “There’s room for all of us, and we need one another,” Ahlfors said. Recently, representatives of those businesses — including venues, caterers, florists, event planners, photographers and bakeries — got together at Blooms & Things to network and strategize. Ultimately they decided they would all chip in to be featured in a professionally designed website at www.vashonweddingsandevents.com. Ads for the site on Google and in off-island newspapers will specifically target people the Seattle area.
“They don’t have to go up to the San Juans; we’re a ferry ride away,” Ahlfors said. “I just want to sustain our local economy.” Many businesses involved in the new effort are also members of the VashonMaury Island Chamber of Commerce and are taking part in a similar effort there. Chamber director Jim Marsh said that as part of the chamber’s current shop local campaign it has created a new weddings and events guide, a pamphlet that’s similar to one it offers with information on local restaurants and lodging. “We get a lot of calls for people looking to have events on the island, whether they want to get married or have a reunion or something else,” he said. The chamber is also working to create a new page on its website dedicated to listing businesses related to weddings and events and has reserved the web domain www.weddingsonvashon.com. Both Ahlfors and Marsh said they believe the two efforts can both work to benefit local business. “I believe all boats rise when people market Vashon and try to make things happen,” Marsh said. —Natalie Martin

Susan Lofland (front) places a flower on Robert Bennedsen’s grave at the Vashon Cemetery. Behind her are Lisa Devereau, Chris Gaynor, Olde John Croan and Mike Mattingly.
Bennedsen honored in Hawaii, on Vashon Last week a group of islanders gathered at the grave of First Lt. Robert Bennedsen at the same time the soldier was honored in Hawaii. On Thursday afternoon, Bennedsen’s remaining ashes were interred at the West Hawaii Veterans Cemetery in North Kona. His parents, Scott and Tracy Bennedsen, now live in Kona and Bennedsen had hoped to live there one day as well. Local veterans in Kona, with his family’s blessing, organized a silent honor guard when his ashes were buried. At the Vashon Cemetery, some who knew Bennedsen, as well as representatives of local veterans groups, told a few stories about Bennedsen and laid flowers on his grave. “Be keeping his memory alive, it forces us to remember all those others,” said Lisa Devereau, who manages Island Funeral Service. Bennedsen, who grew up on Vashon and graduated from Vashon High School, was killed in action in Afghanistan in 2010. This month a ball field at the new VES Fields will be named in honor of him as well; a dedication ceremony is scheduled for April 26.

Progress blocked by a divided Legislature
Long path has ended with an impressive new library
It is now a couple of weeks since the end of the 2014 legislative session, and I look back on the flurried and brief 60 days with mixed feelings. There are many bills, small and great, that I am proud passed. Possibly none more important than the Dream Act, which ensures all hard-working Washington students can apply for the State Need Grant, regardless of where they were born. Children of immigrants, who often have little or no memory of any home other than Washington, will no longer be disqualified from essential financial aid simply because of their parents’ immigration status. In the Senate, all of the 23 Democrats were joined by 12 Republican colleagues to pass this landmark legislation. And as the governor signed the Dream Act into law, we were joined by hundreds of kids who had lobbied tirelessly for this legislation and worked so hard for its passage. On too many other fronts, however, 2014 was a session of missed opportunities. Two years into a Republican-controlled Senate, essential legislation, from women’s reproductive health to the Voting Rights Act, continued to be blocked. The first example of this is the Senate Republicans’ failure to bring forward a compromise transportation package. The funding from this badly needed package is what keeps our roads, bridges and ferries safe so we can go to work, our kids can go to school and our economy can keep rolling. The governor, House members and Senate Democrats attempted time and again to broker an agreement. Yet instead of reaching a compromise, the Senate majority brought for-
It’s hard to make everyone happy, especially on Vashon, but we think the county library system has come close with its newly remodeled branch at Ober Park, which was unveiled last weekend. Readers, the library’s traditional audience, will be pleased that the library has the same number of books and that shelves are much easier to navigate. Families will love the new children’s area, and many will appreciate the abundant space to hold meetings or events, study or work in There are few shared a quiet place. For those community spaces on moving to digital, ebooks Vashon. With more to offer are easier to access than ever and plug-ins for lapthan ever, we expect the library will soon stand out tops and other devices are everywhere. The new on that short list. library seems to strike a balance between providing printed material and moving into the digital age. How much sweeter that the library’s opening was precluded by the unveiling of a new high school building last year. Both places will serve local youth well, and both buildings have badly needed meeting spaces that can be utilized by community groups. As we celebrate the new library, it’s notable to look back on the somewhat tumultuous path that got us here. Early in the process, the King County Library System, facing obstacles at Ober Park, planned to move the library south of town to the K2 site and in 2008 even had a written agreement to do so. However, many opposed the move, and in true Vashon style, they petitioned the county until it reversed its decision. How coincidental that the island is now engrossed in another debate involving potential development at K2. While Vashon is seemingly split over the prospect of a marijuana company at K2, in 2008 there were few who wanted the library to move there, and seeing the newly remodeled space now, it’s easy to understand why. It makes sense for a library to be located in the heart of town, and we’re glad Vashon residents spoke up to keep it there. And how much better that out library is also at a park. The library is now more connected to Ober Park than ever. Large windows lining the front of the building, where people can sit and work, look out on the front lawn, and the meeting room overlooks trees. Parents can actually see the Ober Park playground from the library’s new children’s area. There are few shared community spaces on Vashon. With more to offer than ever, we expect the library will soon stand out on that short list as a true community hub.
GOVERNMENT By SHARON NELSON ward a package with only two Republican signatures — not nearly enough to bring it to the floor for a vote. Had a funding package passed, Washington would have gained 10,000 jobs this year. But those jobs are now lost, along with funding for necessary projects. Another major missed opportunity for jobs across Washington was having no capital budget. Funding for projects, ranging from increasing access to the arts to fixing dams, relies on a capital budget. The House of Representatives passed one with broad bipartisan support, but on the final day of session, the Senate Republican majority voted against it and the investments it makes to familywage jobs for Washingtonians. It is an unfortunate reality that such a key piece of legislation can fail despite 115 legislators voting in favor and only 30 voting opposed — four in the House and all 26 members of the Republican majority in the Senate. Progress toward improving education, both basic K-12 and higher education, was another struggle. There were a few key steps made, including some extra funding for basic necessities in classrooms, as well as the passage of a critical bill to make high school seniors more college and career ready (SB 6552). Higher education tuition was again

Islanders should consider forming a city The recent strong arm imposed on our island by King County to support a rezone of the K2 site is just the tip of the iceberg.
Many islanders are discussing the idea of forming our own city of Vashon to better control our destiny. The next logical step would likely be annexation to another county. This entire scenario may seem radical, but as time goes on, the intrusion of King County govern-

frozen, and the Dream Act, of course, was a big win for our students. But the Legislature, with the Republican control in the Senate, did not develop a meaningful deal on funding basic education, per the Supreme Court’s April 30 deadline to do so. We also did not do enough to close the opportunity gap so that work — and not wealth — is the deciding factor in whether or not our kids go to college. And finally, something that seems to be a perennial disappointment is the languishing of the Toxic-Free Kids and Families Act. Many of you know about this effort I’ve been engaged in for years with parents, nurses, firefighters and scientists. Unfortunately, we are up against generations of thought that give the benefit of the doubt to industries that pretend to have consumers’ best interests at heart. It is an ongoing effort to get the word out that chemical companies are adding toxic and cancer-causing chemicals to our furniture, under the guise of fire protection. Babies and firefighters are at greatest risk for exposure. Though awareness is increasing, every year without a bill to address this is another year that sees first responders die of cancer and children exposed to developmentally damaging toxic chemicals. This synopsis of 2014 may sound a bit glum, but being home reminds me of the battles we’ve fought right here and won. And that, at least, gives me confidence for a better future for all of us — a feeling I’m happy to say is not mixed at all.

Commissioner stands by opinion piece Scott Harvey was upset by my Feb. 26 commentary about the Vashon Park District (“Park board charts course for the future”). So upset he felt the need to create his own public response and make it an agenda item at our meeting. None of the other commissioners had this reaction. True, my article was not reviewed by the commissioners prior to me publishing it (I wasn’t hiding anything; I just didn’t think what I said was controversial among our board). But I stand by what I stated. Every point I made has a majority of commissioners that has voted to support that point of view. In previous boards I have been on,
when the majority votes, that is the direction in which we move. It is unproductive to publicly spin a personal view if it won’t be moved forward. For example, the board passed a 2014 budget that included finishing permit work on the VES Fields. That is a fact. We do “expect to complete that work this year.” We can change it by a majority vote, but Scott’s personal (and minority) view that we should not complete the work doesn’t help us right now and creates a lot of “noise.” My other two points I focused on (1. paying off VPD debt and creating a cash reserve; and 2. improving our efficiency in the area of park maintenance, or “address maintenance needs” as Scott put it), Scott, and the majority of the board, agree on. So why write an entire column stating your singular position, when it would seem more beneficial to support VPD in moving
Dear Fellow Islanders, There has been much written in recent months about the potential purchase of the old K2 building by Bakkhos Holding for the purpose of a Tier 3 Marijuana Production and Processing Facility. We, the undersigned, would like to present our concerns to the community. In 2009, Vashon was awarded a grant of $125,000/year until 2019. This federal grant has 2 goals: 1. Strengthen collaboration in the community to prevent and reduce substance abuse among youth. 2. Reduce substance use among youth and, over time, adults. We were awarded this grant because evidence, from years of participation in the Washington State Healthy Youth Survey, established our island youth were at substantially greater risk for substance abuse than their peers throughout the State. As per the Federal funding, the primary issues that the island is charged with addressing are to: • Reduce substance abuse among youth through the use of environmental strategies • Establish and strengthen collaboration among communities, private nonprofit agencies and federal, state, local and tribal governments to support the efforts of community coalitions to prevent and reduce substance abuse among youth. The use of environmental strategies means having kids see and hear “the negative effects of drugs” throughout their community. The environmental strategies are a key counterbalance to all the positive information kids see and hear about drugs. As we all know, the former K2 site occupies a prominent location in our small community. It is within walking distance from all three of our public schools and is in a location where kids mill about after school and transfer students catch buses to the ferry. Vashon Allied Arts, O Space and Vashon Athletic Club, where many young people participate in after school classes and activities, are all situated close by and within the 1000 foot buffer zone that is required by State law. When K2 operated from this site, the island took pride in the manufacture of skis and snowboards and in the brand of K2, similar to the way people may feel loyal to the sports team from their city even if they do not closely follow sports. If the primary product of the island is THC infused candy are we expecting our children to feel pride in this product and in the Edipure brand? We strongly believe that the presence of such a large scale and highly visible facility will send a confusing and harmful message to our children and youth. We believe our young people will perceive the presence of such a facility as an endorsement of marijuana use by their community in direct contradiction to the VARSA environmental strategies and in spite of extensive research on the dangers of marijuana use to young, developing brains. Although a majority of Vashon Island voted in favor of I-502, there is a great distinction between voting to decriminalize the use of recreational marijuana for those over 21 and supporting a large factory that makes THC infused products in the part of town where our kids go to school. We do not believe the voters had products such as THC infused candy in mind when they voted in favor of I-502. We understand that the law has passed and that there will now be a presence of legal marijuana in the community. What we object to is the scale, prominent location, and product of this particular endeavor. Some on the island have tried to portray those opposed to the Edipure business as a fringe minority. We present our names here at the right to help our fellow islanders see that we are neither fringe nor a minority. We are parents, coaches, co-workers, neighbors and friends. We are individuals that care deeply about the fabric of this community and do not support the notion that the moniker, “Weed Island” is anything to be proud of. The decisions that we make now regarding this issue will impact our island community for many generations to come. Thank you for your careful consideration. To learn more about this issue and what you can do to get involved please visit our website at http://notpotcandy.org
these initiatives forward? I look forward to working with Scott, and my other commissioner colleagues, to “move on” and deliver a “new park district.” — Lu-Ann Branch

All Island Forum to begin new series After a yearlong hiatus, All Island Forum, a group seeking to improve communication among islanders, is beginning a new series of discussions. A series called “Sharing Story: Making Visible the Invisible” will kick off with a meeting on Wednesday, April 16; then round-table discussions will take place monthly through next fall. At the event on the 16th, organizers say they hope attendees will come prepared to share their own stories of being involved in the Vashon community and how their experiences have been, both good and bad, said John Runyan, who is a trained facilitator and a leader in All Island Forum. Runyan says organizers hope that when attendees hear each other’s stories, the experience will “help build capacity for everyone in the community to inquire and listen more carefully to each other, especially around the heated topics that come up periodically.” All Island Forum formed in 2011 after the mass resignation of members of the
Vashon-Maury Island Community Council, offering an alternative place for community conversation. Its first forums drew more than 100 islanders, and later meetings on various topics drew between 35 and 75 participants. Runyan said a core group involved with All Island Forum decided last fall on the focus of the spring series of meetings, and experiencing the February meeting on the proposed town plan amendment affirmed what he called a need for better understanding of one another and more effective communication. The series of All Island Forum discussions will also explore different formats for meetings. — Natalie Martin “Sharing Story: Making Visible the Invisible” will meet from 5:30 to 7 p.m. Wednesday, April 16, at the Vashon Library. After that, round-table conversations will be held the third Wednesday of each month from 12:30 to 2 p.m. at locations to be determined.

Filmmakers to discuss new film on Maury UFO tale By SARAH LOW Staff Writer
On June 21, 1947, something happened to Harold Dahl while he was trolling the waters in his boat off of Maury Island. Something that he claimed damaged his boat, injured his son, killed his dog and entangled him in a web of secrecy, disbelief, ridicule and intrigue that extended all the way to J.Edgar Hoover and plagued his family for years. Dahl saw a group of UFOs, or so he said, one of which appeared to be in trouble before raining burning slag from the sky onto his boat. While UFO sightings seemed to be all the rage during the Cold War era, Dahl’s “Maury Island incident” has the distinction of being the first one on record to be investigated by
the military and the FBI. But with the exceptions of UFO enthusiasts, skeptics and locals with ties to the story, most people have never heard of it. Scott Schaefer and Steve Edmiston, both local award-winning directors, writers and producers, are looking to change that. On Tuesday night, as a fundraiser for the VashonMaury Island Heritage Museum, the Vashon Theatre and Island Green Tech will host a preview of three “webisodes” — a series of episodes to be shown on the internet — created from Schaefer and Edmiston’s short film, “The Maury Island Incident,” which they shot on location here last summer. Schaeffer said the duo would prefer to have a full screening, but doing so could preclude them from
Tony Doupé (foreground) and Allen Fitzpatrick in “The Maury Island Incident.” participating in the Seattle International Film Festival. But the two were effusive in their praise of the
museum and its staff and are eager to help with fundraising efforts since they did some research for the
film there, they noted. “I started talking to the staff about what I was looking for, and everyone went quiet. ... Then suddenly, ‘we’ll go get the binder.’” Edmiston said. “They brought me this big threering binder full of news clippings and reports from the time of the story. It was awesome.” The two will be on hand at the screening to take audience feedback and engage in a Q&A. The 30-minute film, based primarily on information obtained from FBI case files that were declassified in 1997, is meant to generate interest on a broader scale. Schaeffer said the two hope the story can become a TV series, with their film as the pilot episode. “Think ‘X Files’ meets ‘Mad Men’ meets ‘True Detective,’” he said.
Both Schaefer and Edmiston revelled in the connections they made with people who were familiar with the story and are looking forward to their evening on Vashon. “We would love it if people would come that have any kind of tie to or recollection of this story or even just this time period locally,” Schaefer said. “It’s so exciting to meet people who can bring new elements and information to the table. It makes for a wonderful night of interaction.”
“The Maury Island Incident” webisodes will show at the Vashon Theatre at 6 p.m. Tuesday, April 8. Admission is by a suggested donation of $10, and tickets can be purchased in advance at the Vashon Bookshop.
CRUISE INTO FIRST FRIDAY Most galleries and art spots are open 6 to 9 p.m. Art in the Alley will present work by several Vashon artists and will be open through the weekend as well. Pieces include new paintings from Christine Marsh and graceful figures in acrylic and photography by Kelsey Johnson. Cafe Luna will show 2D works by island artist Leah Gerrard. Gerrard works with oil pastels, watercolor and printmaking, as well as mixed media, to create small works that are mostly abstract. The Hastings-Cone Gallery adjacent to Snapdragon will show work by Jon Langford. Langford, a Chicago-based artist, is known for his multi-layered paintings, which are often of country music figures. Langford is also an accomplished alternative country singer/songwriter and will play a show there on April 20. Raven’s Nest will highlight architectural Northwest coast art. On display will be a set of sandblasted glass doors, depicting a traditional house screen design. A photographic presentation will also show examples of doors, panels, totems and more. The Hardware Store Restaurant will show paintings by Alexis St. John. All her paintings are connected in that they have loose, expressionist abstracts as part of their makeup. She was once an archaeologist, and some of her pieces feature iconic images reminiscent of petroglyphs and ancient myth. Puget Sound Cooperative Credit Union will exhibit acrylic abstracts by Allison Trundle. Music will be provided by Kevin Almeida.
The Vashon Allied Arts Gallery will present a show called “Finding Center,” where three island artists all contribute circular art. In his mixed-media sculptures and rust monotypes, Brian Fisher “finds center” using masculine figures, mazes and round shapes. Liz Lewis, who specializes in pottery, plays with symmetry, pattern and textural embellishments. And Penny Grist’s sculptural and wall mosaics also feature circular shapes, using rings and globes of meticulously arranged tiles of vitreous glass. RiverBend will play at the opening. VALISE Gallery used Earth Day as an inspiration and a theme for its April show. Each collective member was asked to invite another artist to participate in a celebration the resilient yet fragile Earth. At Vashon Community Care, quilts will continue to be on display. At Vashon Intuitive Arts Island artist Kara LC Jones will open a solo, mixed media show titled “Tangibles of the Intangible.” The show will include original works, hand-embellished giclee prints and Jones’ new experimental pieces done with air clay. The work was partially inspired by Jones’ recent hiatus in Sedona, Ariz., and return to the island. Cancer survivors and their caregivers will tell their stories through art on display at the Vashon Senior Center. The show is presented by the Relay for Life. The baked potato bar will again be offered. Vine to Vashon will display a show by artist Rebecca Miller titled “Female Artists on Antique Sheet Music.” Delilah Pearl & The Mantarays will perform acoustic songs at the opening, and a percentage of wine sales from the night will be donated to The DoVE Project.

Tess Mueller and Aubrey Kraabel work on creating a beeswax panel.
Student art fills the Two Wall Gallery This month unique works by Vashon students will be on display at the Two Wall Gallery. Two Wall will showcase over 100 beeswax panels created by students from Vashon High School and McMurray Middle School as part of Vashon Allied Arts’ Artists in the Schools Program. The panels are photographs taken by the students or their families and transfered into beeswax . The images are burnished into the warm beeswax, then the paper is removed, leaving the image literally floating in the wax, glowing from light coming through the picture. The project was led by local photographer and artist Ray Pforner, who said the 90 students he worked with brought enthusiasm and focus to their work. “Their imagination challenges all of us established artists; equally impressive was their craftsmanship,” he said. “The group of us working with these very talented teens has assembled a very large body of work with an incredible depth.” The student artists will be on hand during the opening, from 6 to 9 p.m., and the show will remain at Two Wall through the end of April.

AROUND TOWN Sunday Social Hour will feature several local performers Once again, it’s time for Sunday Social Hour with The Rev. Multiple performers will join David Godsey as his signature character, the Rev, on stage. Performers include Rusty Willoughby and Jennifer Sutherland, Michael Meade, Sarah Christine, Steve Amsden, Dianne Krouse, Azula and Chau Yuong, who will sing a song in Vietnamese. The show will be at 4 p.m. Sunday at the Open Space for Arts & Commmunity. Sunday Social Hour is part of a new series called “Sundays at 4,” which is supported in part by 4Culture.

Doors will open at 3 p.m. for socializing.
Young performers show off their choreography skills This weekend more than 30 young dancers will perform dances they choreographed themselves at the sixth-annual Original Works show.

Filmmakers will be on hand at film about sex trafficking “Eden,” a dramatic feature film telling a survivor’s story of human trafficking, will be shown by Vashon Film Society this week as part of the First Friday Art Film Series at the Vashon Theatre. The movie is based on the real-life horror story of teenager Chong Kim, who was abducted in Oklahoma and trafficked into Las Vegas and California. Director Megan Griffiths will appear at the Vashon Theatre for a Q&A after the screening of her film. Griffiths says she was drawn to the script because “it was a journey of a woman who was in a situation who wasn’t rescued by anyone. In the great majority of films there’s a police officer character who swoops in and saves the day. Eden had to be her own hero.” Vashon-based editor Eric Frith will also attend the showing and participate in the discussion after the film. Griffiths is nationally known in the independent film world as a director, producer and writer. She serves on the board of Northwest Film Forum and has been a recent panelist at the Sundance and SXSW film festivals. Her latest feature, “Lucky Them,” premiered at the Toronto Film Festival. Friday’s feature has garnered critical acclaim for addressing the tough subject of sex trafficking. “Eden” has also been recognized with awards from SXSW, the Seattle
In “Eden,” actress Jami Chung plays a teen girl abducted into sex trafficking. and Milan International Film Festivals, the San Diego Asian American Film Festival and others. “Eden” will screen at 9:30 p.m. Friday at the Vashon Theatre. Admission to the showing and discussion is $7.

Track opens new season with success By MADDI GROEN For The Beachcomber

Michelle Raney, center, and Zina Carroll prevent a Lakeside player from getting to the goal.
Valkyries aim to add three wins at home The Vashon Valkyries lacrosse team will launch a will three home-game series this evening that will run through Monday. “I want to encourage the entire island to watch,” said coach Larry DuBois. “Lacrosse is a neat sport, and spectators will be able to appreciate the girls’ skill and heart.” Four games into the season, DuBois said the team is coming together well. It has a winning record of three wins, no losses and one tie. Recently, the Valkyries beat Lakeside, whose varsity team last year took the league championship, and last Friday night, the girls were undeterred by considerable steady rain and beat Bellevue, who had beaten them last year. DuBois said looking at the statistics for the league, he can see some of the strength of Vashon’s team reflected there.
Midfielder Mykah Shiosaki is ranked first in draw control. The draw is when two players from each team stand at the center line with their sticks held parallel to the center line with the ball in between them. They throw the ball up, and whoever catches the ball carries it down the field to begin the game. Additionally, Jenna Rauma, Anneke Steneker and Shiosaki are all ranked high in the league for scoring goals. But he hastened to add it’s a group effort. “In the end, while we have a lot of talent on the team, the girls work together. It’s the teamwork that makes us excel.” The team’s next games are at 6:30 p.m. tonight, April 2, Friday and Monday at the Vashon High School stadium. — Susan Riemer
With a slew of new faces, plus plenty of experienced returning athletes, the VHS track team has been taking great strides so far this season. Last week the Pirates traveled to Charles Wright Academy for their third meet. Due to early injuries and absences, this was the highest-attended meet so far for the team. The Pirates experienced a quintessential outdoor track and field day, with weather ranging from bright sun to pouring rain. However, this didn’t slow down the boys’ or the girls’ teams. The girls ended the day with four first-place finishes. Freshmen Selena Mildon, Lauren Jenks and Kat Andrus won the 800meter run, long jump and triple jump respectively. Before this year, Mildon had never run an 800meter event, aside from a short-lived middle school track career. She was new to the sport when practice started in early March. But after a few meets and a victory on Thursday, it seems clear that she’s found her strong suit in this two-lap race. Mildon won with a time of 2:40.35, Jenks with a personal best jump of 16 feet, 1 inch, and Andrus
Freshman Lauren Jenks excels at the long jump. blew her competition out of the water, winning the triple jump by almost 3 feet with a mark of 33 feet, onehalf inch. Also winning her event was senior Maddi Groen. Groen raced the 3,200 meter and won with a 24-second lead on the second-place finisher. On the boys side, the Pirates had personal records all around. Juniors Aaron Kitchener, Mason Carter and Joe Shugart all ran personal bests in the 800 meters, despite a packed race and intense competition. Improving in the discus, javelin and shot put, sophomore Oliver DanielsPavich also had an excellent day on the track. Junior
Nate Lawson broke through the 13-second barrier and finished the 100-meter sprint in 12th place with a time of 12.77. Junior Jason Kruly smashed his previous personal record in the shot put after throwing 31 feet, 1 inch. Both Lawson and Kruly are upperclassmen new to high school track, but based on their performances so far this season, they are right up there with some of Nisqually League’s most experienced athletes. Assuming the Pirates continue on their upward trajectory, the team will consist of plenty of old pros come the league championship in May. — Maddie Groen is a member of the track team.

LIBRARY CONTINUED FROM 1
6,000 square feet to 10,000 square feet. The new library has more space for perusing bookshelves, as well expanded children’s and teen corners, abundant work areas and a large meeting room. “Pretty much everyone was positive,” Riley said of the opening day at the library. “Most of the people seemed quite pleased.” Riley said she overheard the most comments about the abundant natural light in the new building, which has floor-to-ceiling windows on the west and north sides that look out on Ober Park. Light monitors atop the roof also bring light in from above, and lighting built into the bookshelves makes up for when it’s not as bright outside. “Everyone seemed to like the light,” she said. In a tour of the new building, Riley pointed out that the large front windows are lined with swivel chairs, tables and a cyber bar where outlets are plenty and patrons can work on their laptops or other electronic devices, something she said was “in high demand” at the new library. “That’s what people want,” she said. Just steps away is a new touch-screen computer dedicated to ebooks. The computer was donated to the library by OverDrive, the company that KCLS uses to distribute ebooks. By using the OverDrive app, Riley said, readers can download ebooks to their tablets or ereaders there or at home.

The new children’s section of the library has large windows overlooking Ober Park. “Downloading ebooks is skyrocketing, and it will continue to go that way,” she said. In the back of the library, a large meeting room is left open as a work space when not in use but can be closed off for meetings or other events. Automatic shades can be drawn over the windows and films or presentations shown on a large projector. “It’s more inviting,” said Ken Chappelka, who attended the library opening and said he appreciated large, open spaces for meeting and working. “It’s not as dark as the other one,” he added.

Ken’s daughter Ellen, a high school student, said she was glad to hear at the ceremony that the Vashon Library partnered with Vashon Island Fire & Rescue to install a generator at the library, meaning it can be used as a shelter during a widespread power outage or other emergency. Ellen said she goes to the library about once a week. She called the new building “awesome” and said she’s also simply glad it’s back in its former space at Ober Park.

The expanded and colorful children’s area overlooks the Ober Park playground and has lots of kid-friendly seating, kids’ computers and bins little ones can take picture books out of. “I’m anticipating many fun hours with my grandson,” she said. Equally as exciting, Riley said, is the new teen area, which has shelves dedicated to youth materials as well as a study area near the computer tables. “I really am happy they’ll have their own space,” she said. As hundreds of people funneled through library on Saturday, islanders didn’t just look around. At least 50 people signed up for library cards, Riley said, and shelves began to empty, particularly in the children’s section. “The checkout line was enormous,” she said.
PHILADELPHIA – A team of doctors has found that a formulation of exotic sounding herbs and spices gives diabetics new hope. The formula, called Cinnatrol™ promotes healthy blood sugar levels by effectively metabolizing glucose into energy. In a research study, all patients taking just one capful of the liquid (one ounce) daily, dramatically lowered their blood sugar levels compared to a placebo group. Another scientific study found that an ingredient in Cinnatrol™ made insulin 20 times more capable converting blood sugar to energy. While individual results vary, one patient in the study lowered his blood sugar from 220-245 to the 100-130 range in only
28 days, despite being instructed not to change his dietary habits or physical activity. Some patients, under their doctors care, have been able to reduce or eliminate their need for diabetic drugs. Scientists say that Cinnatrol™ actually helps diabetic drugs to work more efficiently. Additional information is available at www.cinnatrol.com. Cinnatrol™ is available without a prescription at pharmacies and nutrition stores or call 1-877-581-1502. Now at select Now at:

1950s plane crash off of Point Robinson was fatal By BRUCE HAULMAN For The Beachcomber
Many of us have heard of the “Maury Island Incident” of June 1947, when flying saucers allegedly dropped hot molten metal on a fisherman, his son and dog off of the shore of Maury Island. Few islanders are aware, however, of the “Maury Island Incident” that took place nine years later, when a Boeing 377 Stratocruiser crash landed into Puget Sound off Point Robinson. On April 2, 1956, Northwest Oriental Airlines flight No. 2 took off from the Seattle-Tacoma International Airport on its regularly scheduled flight to Portland and then on to Chicago and New York. The Boeing 377 Stratocruiser was a double-decked four-engine airplane that seated 50 to 60 passengers, and had a lounge where drinks were served on the lower deck. The plane had originally been designed as a military transport and was converted to civilian airline use by pressurizing and air conditioning the cabin. That fateful morning, the airplane had 32 passengers and six crew on board. The flight took off at 8:06 a.m. and quickly rose to an altitude of about 1,200 feet when the wing flaps were retracted. Immediately the airliner began to shake violently and roll to the left. The pilot, Captain Robert R. Heard, believed the flaps on one of the wings had not retracted properly, and after radioing the control tower was directed to either return to the airport or proceed on to McChord Air Force Base. As the buffeting grew worse and the airliner began to lose altitude, Captain Heard decided to ditch into Puget Sound and First Officer Gene P. Johnson sent out a Mayday radio distress call, which was heard by a Coast Guard cutter and an Air Force amphibious Grumman Albatross rescue aircraft, both of which prepared to help in the rescue. The Stratocruiser crash landed about 500 yards off Point Robinson, headed northwest after the pilot had made a sweeping right turn to bring the aircraft in as close to shore as possible. The plane landed at 8:10 a.m., only four minutes into the flight, and stayed afloat for about 15 minutes before sinking in nearly 400 feet of water. The Air Force Albatross landed close to the wreck about 10 minutes later and the Coast Guard cutter and the Foss Tug Brynn Foss arrived about 30 minutes after the crash. A Northwest Airlines DC-3 cargo plane flew over the site and dropped a 12-man inflatable life raft. The three Coast Guardsmen stationed at Point Robinson Lighthouse launched their 14-foot skiff with a five-horsepower outboard and headed out to help. In addition, Gary Larson, a 16-year-old Vashon High School student, and a friend of his launched Gary’s recently completed boat and dragged several survivors to the beach, where they were then taken out to the rescue craft by sport fishermen who had arrived to help and had outboard motors on their boats. Despite the smooth ditching of the plane and the quick response of the rescue craft, not all of the passengers and crew survived. The passengers and crew assembled on the wings of the sinking plane, and it was quickly determined that flight attendant David Razey, who was in the lower deck lounge area of the plane, did not survive the crash.

The wreckage of the Stratocruiser was recovered from the bottom of the Puget Sound. The plane is also pictured in the drawing below. As the plane sank, the passengers and crew took to the frigid waters of Puget Sound with the seat cushions as flotation devices. Hypothermia quickly began to set in and many of the survivors had to be helped into the rescue craft as their arms and legs began to lose the ability to function in the cold. Four of the passengers, Tsui Kinglin, her 4-year old son Vee Song Foon, Paul Wehrnen and Dr. George Hook were lost to hypothermia and, with the loss of David Razey, brought the total to five lives lost. Ten days after the crash, the wreckage of the Stratocruiser was recovered from the depths of Puget Sound. The wreck was located and dragged into about 45 feet of water just off Point Robinson, where it was then lifted by the steam derrick Foss 330, placed on a barge and taken to the Navy pier in Tacoma. There the CAB (Civil Aeronautics Board) investigators determined the cause of the crash was the cowl flaps, which had been accidentally left open after takeoff. In the above photograph, you can

see the cowl flaps open about half way between the propellers and the wing. Although the 1947 “flying saucer” Maury Island Incident gets much more publicity and is better known, even to Vashon-Maury Islanders, the other Maury Island Incident is equally as important in our island’s history and directly involved islanders in the heroic rescue efforts that minimized the loss of life. — Bruce Haulman is an island historian and the director of the Vashon History Project, at www.vashonhistory.com

GRANNY’S CONTINUED FROM 1
relocate. Because most Granny’s board members do not want to continue paying for repairs at the site, she said one option stood out. “The only thing that made sense to the board was to look elsewhere,” she said. The vote wasn’t unanimous she added, but the group arrived at a consensus and is recommending to members that on April 7, they vote to move. Providing a tour of Granny’s Attic recently, Johnson said the buildings were constructed in the 1950s, and they have not aged well. “This was not a facility that was built by the military to withstand the test of time,” he said. Since starting in his position in late 2011, Johnson said, Granny’s has spent more than $100,000 on building upgrades and repairs, but there is more to do, including that the rear of the annex building needs to be torn down to its exterior walls and the plumbing, heating and electrical work redone. A new roof needs to be installed, he added, and the parking lot needs to be repaved. Because Sunrise Ridge charges such low rent, maintenance has been deferred, and Johnson said he believes the only way the landlords could fund some of the necessary work is by asking the tenants for funds to do so or doubling everyone’s rent. It is against this backdrop, Chun said, that the board made its decision. “I have to keep driving myself and the board in the direction of how we can best serve our mission, which is the health care of the island,” she said. “If we spend that money on a new roof or furnace or parking lot, that takes away from our purpose.” Last Friday, a group of about 20 Granny’s staff, volunteers and board members gathered at the IGA shopping center, which is owned by Shawn Hoffman, for a

Granny’s would give up a site intended for nonprofits to move to a commercial site, leaving Granny’s, she believes, more vulnerable to rent increases, particularly if the building is sold. She also noted that a move to the proposed facility would displace the batting cages and a small community church that meets there. “We ought to be looking carefully at that kind of (information),” she said. “I think there is more to this than the board and Tim understand.” Finally, she noted that the board made its decision without first talking with the board of Sunrise Ridge — a move that troubles her. “I think it is unthinkable to talk about costs with the owner of IGA without having those same conversations with the Sunrise Ridge board,” she said. Greg Martin, the president of Sunrise Ridge, confirmed that the news was unexpected, especially since the two groups were actively working together on how much each would pay to repave the Granny’s
parking lot this summer. He received the news the day after a joint meeting where none of the Granny’s representatives present made any mention of the possibility of moving. “It was a shock,” he said. “The board did not really know how to respond.” Martin said he is aware the buildings at Sunrise Ridge need care, but added that they are hard to maintain when they are under constant use. Also, he said, Sunrise Ridge has prioritized keeping rent low. Had it not, he said, it could have afforded more maintenance and upgrades. Additionally, he said he has been provided with information the Granny’s board used when it made its decision. He believes some of that information pertaining to potential improvements at Sunrise Ridge shows a higher cost to staying at Sunrise Ridge than he feels is accurate. “In one way, it is not our battle,” he added. “On the other hand, it becomes our battle because we are the battleground.” Martin stressed, howev-
er, that if Granny’s moves, he will direct the board to wish them well and that both non-profits will continue to do important work in the community. “We don’t want animosity with Granny’s,” he said. For her part, Chun said the Granny’s board informed Sunrise Ridge as soon as it voted. As for criticisms about rushing the process, she said she feels it is only fair to move quickly because of the pending paving project, and if Sunrise Ridge proceeds with it, it must get on the contractor’s schedule soon. “Yes, it’s fast,” she added. “But I don’t know that the answer would change if we waited another 30 days.” In the meantime, Johnson said he is looking for public feedback about the possible move and has put a suggestion box out at Granny’s Attic to collect responses. “Whatever the decision comes out to be,” he said, “we have to be respectful and honor the feelings of the people who are not happy about it.”
Jamie Sikorski Raymond Sikorski, known as “Jamie”, died on March 13 at age 67. Raised in Maine, the Army brought Jamie to the west coast. Jamie served as a sergeant during the Vietnam War, finishing at Fort Lewis. He graduated from the UW and had a long career at the Environmental Protection Agency where he led a landmark settlement requiring secondary wastewater treatment at major cities around Puget Sound. In 1987, Jamie was ‘recruited’ to Vashon by a friend. He purchased the old Ross home, known to former baseball players on the island. There he launched many a horse ride through the state lands, as head groom for his daughters and their friends. Jamie’s pleasures included mountain climbing, exploring the San Juans, rebuilding cars, being a ‘horse dad’, converting from atheist to agnostic at the Methodist Adult Sunday School, soulsearching with his friends at LOTH, reading voraciously, talking football with his daughters, and seeing the Seahawks take the Superbowl. Though a complicated man, he relished simple pleasures: the first cup of coffee every morning, the return of the frog chorus every Spring. His wry humor, intellect and companionship will be irreplaceable. Jamie is survived by his wife Carrie, his daughters, Gillian (mother, Julie Hill Sikorski), Jennie (husband, Evan Mattingly), and Hannah. All are invited to Jamie’s memorial which will be held at the old VFW Hall (now Vashon Island Books) at 2 pm on Saturday, April 19th.

VHS debate takes top honors at State
From left, Callan Foster, Maiselle Kearney, Lili Stenn, Julia Zaglin and Zoey Salsbury savor their victories and hold their trophies from the state debate tournament.
Students from Vashon High School competed well last month at the Washington state debate tournament at the University of Puget Sound (UPS). “I think this is the best Vashon has ever done,” said Julia Zaglin, one of the team’s co-captains. Zaglin and Lili Stenn won the WIAA 2A/3A/4A Policy Debate tournament, and Callan Foster and Maiselle Kearney earned fourth place in the same event. In policy debate, participants speak very fast and debate some aspect of United States policy, Zaglin said. In contrast to normal speech, when people speak at about 75 to 100 words per minute, policy debate requires that competitors speak at about 350 words per minute, Zaglin said. While the actual event lasts for about two hours, debaters speak for just 13 minutes. Also at the state competition, Zoey
Salsbury won second place in the Lincoln Douglas debate category. This style of debate is slower, Zaglin said, and is done by just one debater instead of a team, and lasts for about 45 minutes. Out of 54 competitors, Zaglin was awarded fifth speaker in policy debate; Lili Stenn was awarded sixth speaker in policy debate and Callan Foster was awarded 10th speaker in policy debate. Zoey Salsbury was awarded second speaker in Lincoln Douglas debate. Retired debate coach Jim Dorsey accompanied the team to the competition. The team’s current couch is Jack McGougan, a sophomore at UPS, and varsity debaters and team captains Zaglin and Stenn have been instrumental in coaching the team as well. — Susan Riemer

Born 2012, Bella is a beautiful silver tabby who was born in the summer of 2012. She has lots of energy and likes to stay active. She can be very much of a kitten and likes to play with toys and string but at other times she can be more of a cat where she is happy eating, lying around the house and chasing her â€œsparkle ballâ€? toy.

Bella prefers to come to you for any physical affection she may want. She will, on occasion, jump into your lap for a snooze. You may find she will try to â€œnurseâ€? on you at this point. This has always been an issue for Bella and it may be due to her being removed from her mother too young. We find that a fleece jacket or blanket will satisfy her need to nurse.

Born 2002, Bobbi has been with her person all of her life but sadly, circumstances have suddenly changed and she has come to VIPP to find a new home. Bobbie is a tiny sprite of a cat with large ears and inquisitive and soulful eyes. She is very loving and she has great house manners. She has a lot of life and love to give to any lucky person who would choose her. Bobbie came to VIPP on 1/18/14.
5 year old, Coco had a rough go of it for the first few years of her life and is ready to finally have the love and care that every dog deserves. In true Chi-weenie fashion, she LOVES to cuddle, the softer the blanket the better. But, donâ€™t be fooled, she is no couch potato and also adores romping in the yard (fenced please) and going for walks. Coco is a fabulous companion and â€œgo withâ€? dog who loves car rides and people and handles new situations well. She is good with other dogs and while she is ok with kids, she would prefer not to live with them. If you would like to meet this sweetie please call Barb Drinkwater with Vashon Island Pet Protectors at (206)567-5222.
