Loss of natural shoreline confirms concerns about Puget Sound health Some homeowners will have to address unpermitted work By NATALIE MARTIN Staff Writer

Gluten-free duo earns national acclaim Islanders’ most recent book wins a prestigious culinary award By JULI GOETZ MORSER Staff Writer

When Shauna James Ahern and Daniel Ahern first learned they had won the prestigious James Beard Award, they were on a ferry heading to Seattle. The

announcement arrived via Twitter, and the couple squealed like little girls, Daniel said. It’s hard to blame them. The Beard awards are the highest honors given to culinary professionals for excellence and achievement in the field. Think Pulitzer Prize, maybe even Nobel, for the food and beverage industry. “It came as a marvelous surprise,” said Shauna, whose sparkling brown eyes and rosy cheeks look like the SEE GLUTEN FREE, 13

Despite shoreline restoration efforts, Vashon has seen an overall loss of natural shoreline in the last decade, a recent study found, leading some to call for better education for homeowners, stricter permitting enforcement and even the banning of bulkheads. “It’s a bit disheartening when you work on so many different projects and we’re still treading water and not forging ahead,” said Greg Rabourn, Vashon’s basin steward for King County. In recent years on Vashon, Rabourn said, the county has removed almost 600 feet of bulkheads, shoreline armoring that harms the environment by stopping natural beach processes and destroying important habitat.

However, the installation of bulkheads on private property — as well as retaining walls, docks and stairs — outpaced those conservation efforts, according to the recent study, and Vashon has still seen a net loss of natural shoreline since 2005. The recently released study, which was conducted using aerial photos and boat-based surveys, also found that much of the shoreline work on Vashon was not permitted. Later this month, King County will send letters to landowners it believes have done unpermitted work, asking them to work with the Department of Permitting and Environmental Review (DPER) to get any required permits. Those who don’t comply could eventually face penalties. “Initially we’re giving the property owners an opportunity to come into compliance,” said Randy Sandin, a resource product line manager with SEE SHORELINE, 20

From French fries to fuel

Some run cars off of restaurants’ leftover grease By SUSAN RIEMER Staff Writer

When Jim Farrell drives his pickup truck past the Red Bicycle, he says he has one thought: “All right, eat more French fries.” Farrell’s true interest lies not with the gastronomic habits of the bistro’s patrons, but with fuel for his truck, which runs on biodiesel made from the Bike’s fryer grease. Once the restaurant has cooked a few days’ worth of fries, fish and chips and mozzarella sticks, chef Jack Chambers sets aside the used grease — some 120 pounds each week — for islander Terry Roth. Roth picks it up and takes it to his home on Maury Island, where he begins

the alchemy of turning grease into fuel any diesel-powered vehicle can use. A former college chemistry professor, Roth has been turning waste into renewable, clean-burning fuel for seven years, initially for financial reasons, when energy prices skyrocketed. “It was an economy measure and trying to get out from under those guys in the Middle East,” he said one day last week, standing outside the small, openair structure he calls “the refinery,” just steps from the home he shares with his wife. But biodiesel’s earth-friendly benefits figure in as well. Biodiesel is lead-free and contains no sulfur or chemical aromatics, which can lead to illness. It also emits far less car-

bon dioxide than petrodiesel, the diesel fuel commonly available at gas stations. “I feel like I am doing my part for the environment,” Roth said. Another bonus, Roth added, is that biodiesel is better for vehicles than its petroleum-derived counterpart, as it cleans and lubricates engines better and increases their lifespan. Given the fuel’s benefits, home brewing biodiesel has been gaining in popularity in recent years, and Roth is not the only one to do so on Vashon. Zombiez gives its used grease to another islander — who would prefer to fly under the biodiesel radar. And Scott Durkee, who used to Susan Riemer/Staff Photo

The Vashon-Maury Island Heritage Association has secured the historic house on Bank Road that it has been fundraising to purchase for use as an interpretive center. The nonprofit is now under contract to purchase the house for $450,000. The sale is expected to close in early July. “It’s so exciting,� said Deb Dammann, the president of the heritage association. “And it’s so exciting to have this support from the community and to have the support for the vision of creating this heritage education center.� The heritage association has long had its eye on the 1910-era house on Bank Road just west of the heritage museum. Historically, the home was the parsonage of the small Lutheran church where the heritage museum is now housed. A couple months ago members learned the house would go on the market and quickly launched a campaign to raise $195,000 for a down payment. As of Monday, the group had raised $165,000 in pledges, including a $40,000 grant from King County 4Culture. The house, owned by islander Bruce

Kleiman since 1988, went on the market for $449,000 in late April, and there were other parties interested in the property, Dammann said. The heritage association signed a contract to purchase it on May 6. “Luckily ours was the best offer he got,� Dammann said. The association is now asking donors to fulfill pledges they made and will also work to raise $30,000 more to round out the down payment. If they can’t raise the final funds, Dammann said, the association’s board is prepared to dip into its reserve account. “I really think the pledges are going to come in and we’re going to make it, but we have this emergency fund to guarantee we’re going to make it,� she said. The nonprofit plans to rent the home back to Kleiman for a few months then to rent it for a time to another person or family to help pay off the mortgage. It will likely put forward another fundraising campaign in the future to transform the house, which is in good condition, into a family-friendly interpretive center. Dammann said she believes that the fundraiser has been successful in part because the heritage association has not previously fundraised much in the community, operating off of member pledges and grants. “It’s only at this point that we’ve made this effort to expand that we’ve done ... fundraising. It’s been remarkable,� she said.

Local family goes on first vacation with help from Make-A-Wish By NATALIE MARTIN Staff Writer

A Vashon family with a child with a terminal condition will take their first vacation ever this month thanks to the Make-A-Wish Foundation. Sara Hartness — who was born with a disorder similar to cerebral palsy — her parents, two young siblings and a nurse will take an all-expenses-paid trip to Disneyland. “They are so totally excited,” said Tatum Hartness, Sara’s mother. “It will be a big adventure for everyone.” Sara, who is 8 years old, was born with a condition that is considered unknown, Tatum said, but that presents itself similarly to cerebral palsy. Sara has the developmental functions of a 3-month-old, Tatum said. She is also blind and uses a wheelchair. Tatum said some other children have been born with the same condition, which is often misdiagnosed as cerebral palsy at first. The condition, however, is still being researched and has yet to be defined. “They’ve been researching it for few years,” Tatum said. “Basically there’s no handbook or guidelines for this one.” For years, Tatum said, Sara has been in and out of the hospital, and she had a permanent tracheostomy when she was 6 years old. Since then, her condition has been more stable and she’s had far fewer

hospital visits, but doctors don’t expect her to improve. Sara’s grandmother, islander Georgia Hartness, nominated Sara for a wish from the Make-A-Wish Foundation, as did staff at the Seattle Children’s Hospital. “They are a really, really awesome group,” Tatum said. “They put in for it as well.” Since Sara wasn’t able to make a wish herself, her family decided on the Disneyland vacation after consulting with Make-AWish officials. Tatum said they chose the trip in part because Sara’s condition has made it difficult for the family to travel. The longest trip they’ve taken is an overnight trip to the beach. Sara has a 12-year-old brother and a 5-year-old sister. The Hartness family planned to take a train to southern California, and their nurse will accompany them on the wish. The family and volunteers with Make-AWish held a farewell party last week at The Rock, which opened and served pizza on Monday just for the occasion. Make-A-Wish Alaska & Washington, funded by private donations and corporate sponsors, including Disney, grants about 300 wishes a year to children facing life threatening illnesses. AJ Thibeault, a Make-A-Wish volunteer who was at The Rock last week, said Disney wishes — trips to Disneyland and Disneyworld, as well as Disney cruises —

Island nonprofits score big in GiveBig Last week approximately 30 nonprofit organizations that serve Vashon participated in The Seattle Foundation’s GiveBig event, a day dedicated to fundraising. Several island organizations report that the day provided a big boost to their coffers. In addition to the amount pledged, The Seattle Foundation will stretch donations by at about 10 percent, according to a foundation representative. The Vashon School Foundation, on the hunt for $450,000 for a variety of needs at district schools, brought in $63,450, according to Donna Nespor of the foundation. Combined with some larger gifts that were given by check to avoid transaction fees and were not technically part of GiveBig, the foundation received $93,450. For Vashon Youth & Family Services, donors gave slightly more than $20,000, surpassing last year’s GiveBig total, said Executive Director Kathleen Johnson. She noted that The Seattle Foundation should be commended for creating a giving climate in the spring that rivals the spirit of the holidays. At the Vashon Senior Center, Executive Director Ava Apple said the day brought in $8,300, all of which will go to the kitchen remodel the center has been working toward since last year. “I was very happy,” Apple said. Prior to the fundraising event, the agency was short just $10,000 for the necessary work, Apple noted. Now with that gap nearly closed, she said she hopes the Chicken Plunge this Saturday will bring in the remainder of the funds. The work on the kitchen is currently under way and should be completed later this month. Island patrons of the arts were also generous, giving $19,000 to Vashon Allied

County Council to hold hearing on pot amendment The King County Council is poised to vote next week on an amendment to the Vashon Town Plan that would allow marijuana business in Vashon town and at Center. The council will hold a public hearing on the amendment, which has had council support and was passed out of committee, at its regular meeting on Monday, May 19. There will be time for public comment. The amendment was introduced by the county several months ago and was controversial at the time, as a marijuana company was working to purchase the K2 building. County officials say the move would align Vashon zoning codes with the rest of unincorporated King County by allowing marijuana growing, processing and retail in properties zoned Community Business and growing and processing at properties zoned Industrial. The company is no longer going for K2, but another off-island company is looking to purchase a

VHS wins award for green club’s work Vashon High School earned the distinction of being a Level One Green School from King County. Principal Danny Rock recently announced the news, saying it is the result of a dedicated effort from a group of students and supportive adults. Stemming from Elisabeth Jellison’s Citizen Science project last semester in biology, a group of students established a Green School club, funded by a grant from the county’s Green Schools Program. The club has helped the school reduce its waste, increase its recycling and educate students on green practices.

Islanders to put on ‘rad’ town hall event Two islanders, backed by a wide range of island organizations, will present

an unusual town hall meeting this Sunday. With entertainment, humor and serious conversation, organizers hope the event will explore some of the challenges facing Vashon and begin the dialogue about how to solve some of the problems. Jessica Bolding, an island acupuncturist, and Christy Veal, who has experience as a corporate event planner, created the event, which they are calling “We Are Vashon ... The Raddest Town Hall Meeting Ever.” “I really believe that there are all kinds of issues on our island,” Bolding said, “and when we all create stronger community ties and hear from different groups on the island, we learn more and have an ability to hopefully move forward in solution.” From 1 to 3 p.m. Sunday at the Vashon Theatre, the meeting will include local entertainers Duo Finelli, Steffon Moody and Martha Enson. There will also be interactive theater performances that explore individuals’ challenges on Vashon. From 3 to 4 p.m. at the Presbyterian Church, there will be time for conversation on such issus as island safety, sustainability and engaging youth and elders. “We want to pack the house,” Bolding said.

Arts. Executive Director Molly Reed noted that some of the funds came from previous donors who fulfilled pledges during the GiveBig event so they would be stretched, but several new donors gave as well. About half of the money donated will go toward VAA’s planned Center for the Arts, and half for operating expenses, Reed noted. Reed also said that merchant fees from credit cards, which many people use when donating, cut into the pledged amount, and the stretch funds from The Seattle Foundation help make up the lost amount. The event also helps raise people awareness about the importance of supporting causes they believe in. “The benefit of the one-day push does inspire people to make donations and think about philanthropy,” she said. Also relishing proceeds from the day, Voice of Vashon surpassed its goal of $10,000 and brought in roughly $11,500 “It was a great deal for us,” said Susan McCabe, VoV’s station manager. “We were thrilled.” The group is about one-third of the way to its $50,000 goal to help fund its new FM station. And at Vashon Community Care, Administrator Janelle Ansel said she is very pleased with the nearly $13,000 donated. No official goals were set there, she said, but she had personally hoped that the organization would bring in at least $10,000. “It is always meaningful, especially on an island where there are so many nonprofits participating,” she said.

Kiwanis member recalls decades of service

Policy should evolve with our knowledge of the shore

From ball fields to buildings, volunteers did it all

It has become a common saying that the Puget Sound is dying a death of a thousand cuts, with damage to this beloved body of water coming from every angle. One of the deepest cuts, it seems, is development along the shoreline. A recent study shows that the King County area has continued to lose the natural shoreline that sustains marine life. Natural beaches are replaced by structures, particularly bulkheads, that destroy habitat. We believe now is the time for government agencies to do what they can to slow We believe now is the time or stop the installation of bulkheads on Vashon and for government agencies throughout Puget Sound to do what they can to slow before it’s too late. or stop the installation of Local conservationists say it’s amazing how bulkheads on Vashon and much more we know about throughout Puget Sound bulkheads and the damage before it’s too late. they do than we did just a decade ago. We now know that when a bulkhead is installed at a beach, it actually alters the face of the beach over time, and not in a good way. The natural beach and sand disappears, and along with it habitat that salmon and forage fish need to complete their life cycles. Should the trend continue and these fish disappear, the entire food chain in Puget Sound could collapse. Seeing orcas pass through our waters would be a thing of the past. We also know bulkheads are not always needed where people once thought they were. Oftentimes more natural and beach-friendly shoreline stabilization will do the same job, or a structure could simply be built a little farther from the shore. As knowledge evolves, so should policy, but in this case it hasn’t. Permitting agencies do take measures to protect the environment in the work they okay, but according to those familiar with the situation, it’s not enough. On Vashon and in places throughout the sound, a property owner can get a permit to build a new bulkhead even when there are better options. The Beachcomber has covered efforts by King County and others to remove bulkheads on Vashon, restoring the natural beaches that remain mostly in more rural places. That’s why it’s discouraging to many to learn that we still didn’t get ahead. Enough shoreline was armored that Vashon, as well as the study area, still lost natural shoreline overall. We hope to someday cover efforts by the county and the state, which also permits shoreline work, to not allow new bulkheads in Puget Sound unless they are absolutely necessary. We understand such a move would take political will, but we also believe environmentally conscious King County is the perfect place to start.

Attending the last meeting of Vashon Kiwanis last week stirred up lots of memories, and I’ll pass on a few. I was a member of the Vashon club from 1958 through 1963. I rejoined in 2008, so I missed several meetings, but they let me back in anyway. Often Kiwanis met in the Alibi Café and sometimes at the golf club. I remember a warm day when my father came off the golf course with no shirt; Al Wescott complained bitterly that he was not appropriately attired, but the club decided his fault was in not wearing a pin. He went out and came back with the pin stuck through a Band-Aid on his chest — but no shirt. There were big laughs, and Al was silenced. Kiwanis was very active and took on bold projects. When I was in high school, the school district carved out a spot in its forest for an athletic field; it served football part of the time and softball the rest. Softball was very popular before television; there were usually five or six teams in the island league. My dad pitched. Kiwanis lit the field and built the first seating. Money was raised for the poles and lights, but there was no contractor, and all the required labor was donated. As I recall, 90-foot poles were required, and lights had to be adjusted seasonally to suit the games. The tallest jin-pole that

COMMUNITY By KEITH PUTNAM could be borrowed from the power company was too short to even reach the balance point on the tall poles. There was a maze of cables and held breaths when it was hoisted. Cleve Bard provided dump trucks full of gravel as anchors for the cables, and the power company line crew provided labor and expertise. I remember Sid Bacchus, not a lineman, climbing up 90 feet and off onto the cross arms to adjust the lights. Kiwanis put together the money and hired a contractor to build a multi-use gym at Ober Park. That building is now the Vashon Park District’s office. Islanders put on stage shows, floats for the festival and lots of other stuff there. One year our float had the high school principal Bill Lane hanging from a yardarm. Something Bill had done stirred controversy in the community, and we made fun of it. Bill was a fine educator, nationally known, and a good sport. We also had a ball toss in town with a dunk tank. I don’t remember all who got dunked, but I think Bill was one of them. Vashon has many groups of men and women who recognize service to others has a high priority. If no one tackled the issues, they

Vashon history

Historians had help in creating the lastest element of website We thank you for the great Beachcomber article (“Vashon’s demographic history is revealed through new project,” May 7) about our newly created Census Project, which offers access to all census data concerning Vashon-Maury Island through www.vashonhistory.com.

We would also like to thank two other islanders: our behind-the-scenes website master Royce Wall for his hard work in creating a usable and attractive framework for all this information, and Bailey Protzeller for her efforts in transcribing historic census enumerator images into a spreadsheet format. Our hope in creating this site is that it can serve as a tool for learning about the people that have in the past and still do today populate our island.

might be left to the government or ignored altogether. Many of these groups have a focus on particular issues, like the Vashon Island Pet Protectors, the Vashon Forest Stewards, the heritage association, VARSA, the food bank, Vashon Allied Arts, the lighthouse keepers and of course the churches. Kiwanis, Rotary and others tackled a wide variety of local, national and international projects. All of these groups rely on committed members. I’m very pleased that our school graduation requirements include public service hours, experience that starts our young people toward a rewarding outlook and way of life. I’d much rather live in a community where we all looked after each other than in a cradle-to-grave society where centralized agencies did or did not step up to the plate. I believe our Kiwanis members ranked high on the list of those who serve others. I’m not good at names but particularly remember Tom Revelle, Sid Bacchus, Cleve Bard, Bill Kirschner, Tom Beall and Bernie Coane as committed Kiwanis members. Bernie and his wife lived in a big log cabin wrapped around a great kitchen. He was THE island chef for events. I remember him cooking big turkeys for seniors at Christmas; he said he used a double handful of garlic in each turkey’s dressing. Old folks need more flavor, he said. Now that I’m 82, I see what he meant.

A day’s chores provide a chance to learn the awesome lessons of life The grass in our front yard is 2 feet high, an undulating sea of leprechaungreen straw swaying in a taciturn breeze. My two young sons and I are seated around the breakfast table on a Saturday morning in early May, wiping up streaks of maple syrup on our plates with the last shards of salty bacon. In a few minutes we’ll wade into our acre-and-a-half of nearly waist-high fescue and crabgrass with a battered lawn mower, a relatively new European-made line trimmer and a rusty oak-handled grass-whip that our oldest boy swings in dangerous arcs like a five-iron. Hoping to kindle enthusiasm for a full day of yard work on a beautiful spring morning, I announce raffishly, “Step one — be awesome.” The boys look at me thoughtfully as the stands of crabgrass ripple in the crush of a shifting breeze. My oldest son shakes his head and sighs, settling into a cynical, bemused smirk. His younger brother joins in the smirk, tentatively, uncertainly, watching his brother out of the corner of his eye, matching his smirk to his brother’s smirk. Last week while plugging random words into the Bing search bar, I came across rules of play for an online version of some sort of role-playing game played with eight-sided dice, apparently written for the usual pimply confraternity of enthusiastic gamers. Step one, it read — be awesome. Step two — see step one.

FAMILY LIFE By KEVIN POTTINGER “Step one — be awesome,” I repeat, hoping to sound authoritative, stentorian, provocative. Sir John Geilgud in Ben Hur. I’ve spent most of my life trying to be awesome, or to convince others that I was. I embark on a solid 15 minutes of wacka-ja-wacka Dad-sermon on the importance of hard work and doing one’s best and being awesome, while my sons stare sullenly at a fixed point on my forehead. A few minutes later, I’m hunched over our battered lawn mower in a tenuous patch of vagrant sunshine, adjusting the choke with a screwdriver and calculating whether we’ve owned the lawn mower longer than we’ve owned our family dog; the dog certainly minds better. Our recalcitrant lawn mower will only start after exactly five strong pulls, or not at all if hot sun is shining. Additionally, the motor hangs by a single bolt, the deck is cracked, and now the muffler has fallen off, lost in the blackberries somewhere. While our youngest boy works the relatively new European-made line-trimmer rather indiscriminately over the steep

Spring Fling a big success! Not even driving rain and blustery weather could keep the Bunny or egg-hunting kids away from the annual Spring Fling! The Vashon Chamber of Commerce would like to thank all those who made it possible and who braved the elements with us to bring smiles to the faces of Island children (and their families!). Thank you to the Vashon Park District for giving us use of the park for the hunt and for the tables and tents; Bettie Edwards and The Little House crew for coordinating the egg-dye table; JR Crawford of Windermere Real Estate and friends for setting up the bonnet/hat-making station; Sharon Campbell of Snapdone for sponsoring the three wonderful prize baskets loaded with local merchant goodies; Rick Brown and the Explorer Scouts for setting up the boundaries, placing eggs and monitoring the hunts; Getchen Neffenger for announcing and keeping track of time; Shawn Hoffman and IGA/Vashon Market for sponsoring the “guess the jelly bean” game; The Vashon High School girls fast pitch team for their wonderful creations at the bake sale table. A special thanks for Trent Sheppard for braving the weather to set up his DJ equipment to make the sun shine even when it wasn’t! And last but not least, thank you to the Spring Fling Bunny who made the kids laugh and directed the egg hunts! Vashon-Maury Island Chamber of Commerce

Thanks to Vashon firefighters who helped in an emergency I had a brush with an automobile last week and spent the night at Harborview Medical Center. I can’t say enough good things about the Vashon Firefighter boys and the good medics at Harborview. A reassuring firefighter/medic sat beside me all the way to Harborview and the Harborview staff checked and rechecked my innards and outers. Also, heartening to me is learning that Harborview pays men and women equally. Thanks again, Vashon firefighters. Dorothy Hall-Bauer

Islanders helped direct traffic in a dangerous situation Many thanks to the Burma Road residents who directed the rerouted Vashon Highway traffic on April 26, after the fatal crash on the north end. Islanders saw a need – narrow, steep Burma Road is a challenging detour route for steady two-way traffic – and they stepped up. Thank you all for your actions to keep travelers moving and safe.

Tips for maintaining a healthy smile

Did you know?

Baby teeth are important! Although baby teeth eventually fall out and are replaced by permanent teeth, they serve a very important purpose during their tenure in the mouth. When baby teeth are lost prematurely, the remaining teeth will shift forward and become crowded. This can lead to future orthodontic problems and daily cleaning difficulties. If cavities form in the baby teeth, it can lead to dental abscess and the decay can affect permanent teeth in the mouth. Many children don’t lose their last baby tooth until age 13 or 14 so it is important to continue to emphasize oral hygiene into their teenage years. It is also important to note that baby teeth have very thin enamel compared to permanent teeth so decay can spread rapidly in these teeth.

Island painter Hita von Mende was chosen as the featured artist of the 42nd National Western Art Show & Auction slated for this weekend in Ellensburg. For von Mende, a Vashon resident for the past 37 years, the landscape and legends of the West serve as a creative muse. She is particularly drawn to the Native American myths, depicting images from those stories in her oil paintings that will be on display this weekend. “Raven figures especially prominently in the Northwest, and he is often paired with the wolf,” von Mende said. “Some Native American and global myths Courtesy Photo talk about horses coming“Wolf and Raven” by Hita von Mende will be auctioned at the from the moon. These are Ellensburg National Art Show & Auction on Saturday. delicious inspirations for paintings. Plus the historic and contemporary American West — its history, its land, its people — are great inspirations. (They are) beautiful, heroic, epic and everyday.” Preserving the West’s unique heritage is a goal of the Western Art Association (WAA), the nonprofit that sponsors the annual art show and auction. Established in 1972, WAA celebrates the art and artists who choose images and elements germane to western America. The Ellensburg National Art Show & Auction is WAA’s primary annual event. Proceeds from art sold at Saturday night’s auction, which will include telephone bids, will provide support for the artists, the association and educational scholarships.

GLUTEN FREE CONTINUED FROM 1

epitome of health, a far cry from her death-like countenance back in 2005. In April of that year, shortly before the couple moved to Vashon, Shauna was diagnosed with celiac disease, an autoimmune disorder set off by gluten, a protein found in wheat, barley and rye. Little did she know that the diagnosis would lead to a blog, a romance and several books, including the one that recently garnered the prestigious award. “It was very different then than it is now,” Shauna said in a recent interview at the couple’s home. “I was always low-level lousy sick all my life, always got the colds and flu going around. I’d sprain my wrists and nobody quite knew why. I had constant stomach issues.” Then came a car accident in 2003. Shauna said she never recovered. Next up? Major surgery. Again, no recovery. So when the flu hit her in 2005, people thought she was dying. “It was awful,” she recalled. “I can look back at the trajectory and it all makes sense, but at the time it didn’t.” That’s because Shauna was eating the very foods that made her sick. Gluten produces inflammation that damages the lining of the small intestine in those with the disease, preventing absorption of nutrients. The malabsorption can cause weight loss, bloating and diarrhea, and eventually deprive the brain, nervous system, bones, liver and other organs of vital nourishment. Shauna learned that sudden-onset celiac can be triggered by bodily trauma — like a car accident or major surgery. Diagnosis given and causes understood,

WWW.VASHONBEACHCOMBER.COM

Shauna then wondered, now what? In 2005, gluten free was not the buzzword it is today. The current plethora of glutenfree blogs and Internet sites didn’t exist. There were only outdated forums where people commiserated about the trials of going gluten free and a magazine called “Living Without,” the worst name possible, according to Shauna. “It all felt like that,” she said. “Your life is over because you have celiac. You’ll never eat in a restaurant, but at least you’ll feel better, and we’re the only people who can help you. After being on that forum for a few weeks, I thought I have to start something else. I at least have to start talking to myself.” So she started to blog, writing with no idea whether others might find it. But find it they did. Gluten Free Girl, as her blog was called, took off and landed in 2007 as her published memoir, “Gluten-Free Girl: How I Found the Food That Loves Me Back … And How You Can Too.” “It all arrived as a great surprise,” said Shauna, who had always dreamed of being a writer. Meeting Daniel — whom she calls Danny — was also unexpected and a game changer. A professional chef trained in French cuisine, Danny had worked in New York and Seattle. When he learned about Shauna’s celiac disease, Danny changed the menu at the Seattle bistro where he worked. “Shauna asked me what I liked about cooking, and I said giving people joy in the belly. When I changed the restaurant to gluten free, Shauna blogged about it.” Soon, Danny said, the restaurant became something of a destination for those searching for gluten-free fare. “People started to plan their vacations just so they could eat there,” he said. “I met

people who had not eaten out in 20 years, as it was too dangerous.” Love swiftly deepened into true partnership, and the couple collaborated on their first book, “Gluten-Free Girl and the Chef: A Love Story with 100 Tempting Recipes.” Named one of the best cookbooks of 2010 by The New York Times, the book chronicled their romance, Danny’s life as a chef and how to cook food found on a gourmet menu, only gluten free. Then came the birth of their daughter Lucy, now 5 years old. The couple said raising a daughter helped them learn that they needed to make different food. Those new recipes ended up in “Gluten-Free Girl Every Day,” the book that ultimately landed the James Beard Award. “It’s how we eat, how we feed our family, which is what good cookbooks should be,” Shauna said. “It’s not an attempt to please everybody, but rather it is an offering. Here’s what works for us. See if they work for you.” Speaking in their test kitchen last week, with the scrumptious aroma of roasted chicken and braised artichokes filling the room, Danny, who has dark-rimmed glasses and hair shorn short on the sides, elaborated on their intention for the cookbook. “We wanted people to get dinner on the table without opening a box. It is meant to be beautiful food but simple. We called it a cookbook for busy people who still want to cook.” Sitting next to her husband, who was bottle-feeding their infant son Desmond, Shauna added that the cookbook is also a product of their life on Vashon, where they strive to eat locally. “There’s lots of local color in it,” she said, explaining that a photographer came out and shot all over the island. The book

Page 13

is filled with photographs of farm stands, KVI beach and the farmer’s market. “It is very much an island book,” she said. Taking their endeavor one step further, off the printed page and onto their 24-footlong table made from island fir, Danny and Shauna plan to host bi-monthly Sunday suppers this summer. They’ll serve glutenfree meals created with the fresh produce and meat from Vashon farms. In the meantime, the pair is also working to complete testing and recipe writing for their next cookbook, “American Classics Reinvented.” Using recipes they collected during two potluck road trips in New England and down the California coast, Danny and Shauna are taking classic comfort dishes and making them gluten free. “This is the first book we’ve crowdsourced,” Shauna said. “It’s the direct opposite of the last one. It’s what people wanted, so … they can go to a family potluck with a gluten-free tater tot-hotpot casserole.” In the decade since Shauna received her diagnosis, gluten free has morphed from a relative unknown into a cultural fad. The Aherns say there are benefits and drawbacks to that evolution, but receiving the Beard award meant public validation for what they do. “I know having Danny as our chef, and being an incredibly talented one, elevates the work we are doing,” Shauna said. “And I’m not just a blogger.” But they both agree that helping others who suffer from celiac disease learn how to cook takes the gluten-free cake. They hear from those people often, and when they do, the culinary duo feels the exact same way. “Awards are nice,” Shauna said, “but that’s even better.”

The Pirate baseball team started off last week strong with a blowout win over Bellevue in the last home game of the year on Tuesday. An eight-run explosion in the first inning lifted the Pirates to a 12-0 win in five innings.

By the end, Hruska Myer had racked up three RBIs on three hits; Ryan Bernheisel had one RBI on two hits; Teddy Attwell had one RBI on a double; Sam Schoenberg had two RBI with one single; Harper Whitney, Ashton Dulfur and Jeremy PilgrimStoppel each had a single, Lacina recorded the win for the Pirates, pitching four shutout innings, striking out five, walking one and giving up four hits.

Wednesday the Pirates traveled to Charles Wright and lost to Life Christian/Charles Wright 5-1 in seven innings. In the first inning, the Pirates pushed across their only run of the day on an RBI double by Lacina, who led the offense with two doubles. Hruska Myer had a double and a single; Bernheisel and Schoenberg each had a single. On the mound for the Pirates was Hruska Myer, with five strikeouts, four walks and four earned runs. The Pirates scored one run on six hits and had one error. Life Christian scored five runs on 11 hits with one error.

again to break the tie. The Pirates had a tough day ahead with three of their starters out sick. The game ended with a loss for the Pirates, 5-0, so they had to play a second game to determine who would get fourth in league and continue on with a chance for state. The first game pitching for Vashon started with Logan Hawkins going five innings, giving up five hits, two walks, two strikeouts and no earned runs. Chester Pruett came in as relief and pitched two-thirds of an inning, giving up two hits and one walk, and Ashton Dulfer closed for the last out. Lacina, Whitney, Schoenberg and Perrin had a single hit each. The Pirates scored no runs with four hits and four errors. Eatonville scored five runs on seven hits with two errors. The second game the Pirates lost again, 6-2. Starting pitcher was Dulfer for three innings, giving up seven hits, two walks and two earned runs. Hruska Myer came in to pitch the last four, giving up two hits, thee walks and one strikeout and one earned run. Clyde Pruett, Lacina and Hruska

Myer were the only Pirates to muster hits, which was not enough to overcome the deficit. Saturday games were the final ones for seniors Lacina and Atwell. They were awarded all-league recognition for their contribution to the team. Lacina got first team catcher, and Atwell got honorable mention. Other Pirates that also received all-league were Josh Hruska Myer, first team infielder; Ryan Bernheisel, second team infielder, and Sam Schoenberg with honorable mention. After the final game, coach Steve Hall reflected on the season and also looked to the future. “Although I was disappointed we couldn’t nail down the final playoff spot, I am very proud of this group and what they were able to overcome.” he said. “The team will miss Ezra and Teddy for sure next year, but the coaching staff is looking forward to an exciting couple of years with this young group.” — Robin Hruska Myer is the mother of a Pirate baseball player.

Fast-pitch looks to 3 final games

LACROSSE SEASON DRAWS TO A CLOSE: BOYS IN FIRST PLACE HEADING INTO PLAYOFFS

By EZRA LACINA For The Beachcomber

Laura Neuman Photo

Last week was a mellow week for the Pirate fast-pitch softball, which played only one game and lost. The Pirates welcomed Bellevue Christian to The Rock on Tuesday, May 6. Vashon destroyed the team in their first meeting of the year, but Bellevue came prepared this time, winning 4-1. Katie Rippel pitched for Bellevue Christian, and she had Vashon’s number, holding them scoreless until the seventh inning. Along with keeping the Pirates off the board, she struck out 10 batters in the outing. Despite looking flat statistically, the Pirates had a lot of quality at bats. Many of the outs recorded came on hard-hit balls that just weren’t falling for Vashon. Senior Vashon pitcher Gabby Frazier had a very

good game going, recording a perfect game through the fourth, but in the fifth, the bottom fell out when Bellevue Christian scored three runs in one inning. With Vashon still scoreless, this put the Pirates in a very tough position. Vashon put together the beginning of a rally in the seventh with sophomore Mallory Breen starting things off with a single, followed by another single by sophomore Selena Biro. A passed ball allowed both runners to advance with freshman Hannah McArthur up to bat. McArthur hit a single to score Breen, but that was the only run the Pirates would score as they fell 4-1. Vashon has three league games left and needs to win them to have a shot at playoffs, something that hasn’t happened in years for this program. — Ezra Lacina is the sports editor for The Riptide.

The Vashon Vultures, in first place in Division II, will compete in a playoff game at home at 1 p.m. Saturday, May 24, at the Vashon High School stadium. Above, Vashon goalie Marquis Stendahl clears the ball against Bellarmine Prep in a game last week in Tacoma.

BIODIESEL CONTINUED FROM 1

make his own biodiesel, once drove a bus to New Orleans after Hurricane Katrina on straight vegetable oil. Durkee has become so widely known as “the biodiesel guy” that he fielded a call from a woman who had fried her turkey at Thanksgiving and wondered if he would like to claim the oil. Roth is quick to note that other people could do what he does and that college professor credentials are not required. “The chemistry is simple; the outfit is simple,” he said. Still, it is a process that requires time and careful attention to safety, and not all the owners of diesel cars could set up their own backyard operations like Roth’s because of the limited amount of oil available. “There is only a finite of amount of fryers on the island,” he said. At his homespun refinery, where a faint smell of French fries wafts through the air, Roth recently explained to a guest how the fuel is made. Simplified, the process starts with filtering, when Roth pours jugs of the used oil into a large settling tank, where it might sit for days or weeks. Settling completed, the oil is pumped into an old water heater — or processor — where it is heated to 130 degrees for two hours, and then Roth adds lye and methanol. After it sits for 24 hours, the liquid is pumped into a washing tank, where a mist of water removes any methanol or glycerol — a byproduct of

the process — and finally the oil is pumped to a drying tank, where excess water is removed. From there, it can be pumped into a vehicle. From start to finish, Roth says, the process, using 35 gallons of vegetable oil, takes about four hours of his time and leaves him with 33 gallons of fuel. With that amount, he said, he fills both of his diesel cars and sells the leftovers to Farrell, who recently purchased the truck from him. At $1.50 a gallon, his homemade fuel has saved him thousands of dollars, he calculates, and these days he only fills up at a gas station when taking a trip. “When we travel, we have to pay for fuel,” he said. “It’s a shock to pay $4.50 a gallon.” At the Red Bike, Chambers said he is happy to have the restaurant involved in this waste-tofuel cycle, and noted that the business used to send its grease off-island. A company recently approached the Bike about purchasing its old oil again, but instead it will continue supplying it to Roth for a small fee, which Roth said he is glad about, or he might have found himself back at the pumps. “If I can no longer make fuel, then I am out of business,” he said. Jim Hassel, Zombiez’ owner, says he, too, is pleased to have the restaurant’s grease go on to serve a useful purpose. A longtime chef, Hassel said he has been around the grease for 25 years — and understands its value. “Although it’s not good for cooking anymore, it

is good for a whole lot of other things,” he said. In fact, he has designs on the oil himself, noting that it is possible to run a vehicle off of waste vegetable oil without converting the oil to biodiesel. “It’s fantastic,” he said. “One day we would like to have our own diesel van or truck that runs off the stuff. … It’s rough seeing it disappear every week and then go buy 50 gallons of fuel to replace it.” When large companies buy waste oil from restaurants, Roth said, they sometimes make biodiesel, but it is also shipped overseas for use in animal feed or used to make soap or degreaser. In fact, the used oil is in such high demand that theft of fryer grease has grown to be an increasing problem. Last week, an article in The Seattle Times noted that truckloads of the oil can be worth thousands of dollars and that competition for it has become cutthroat. On Vashon, Roth said he considers these large companies a threat, and nearly all of the people in the biodiesel cycle on the island expressed interest in keeping the resource here. Farrell, who is aware of the many benefits of biodiesel, says he is more likely to drive his new truck on Roth’s biodiesel than his car, which cannot use the fuel. “It is less expensive to run and less environmentally damaging,” he said of his truck, tipping his hat to the Red Bike for making his excursions possible. “That is why I am able to drive around in a full-size truck, because people are eating French fries” he said.

Dorothy Armistice (Landers) Graves Dorothy Armistice (Landers) Graves passed away on May 7, 2014 at the age of 92. She had an active, full life raising a family, working, traveling, and pursuing many hobbies, talents and interests. Dorothy was born on November 11, 1921 at Dockton in her maternal grandparents’ home. She was the oldest of twelve children born to Annie Jensine (Larsen) and Daniel Boone Landers. Dorothy was the fourth generation of the L.O. Landers family that homesteaded on Vashon Island beginning in 1884 at Lisabeula. Her mother’s family settled at Dockton in 1901 where her grandfather, Hans Christian Larsen, worked at the shipyard. Dorothy married Wilfrid Evans of Tahlequah on January 26, 1938. They had four daughters together: Catherine, Marian, Sharon, and Nancy. In 1948, the young family relocated to Clark Air Force Base, Philippine Islands to join Will who had accepted a position in the Civil Service as an engineer. While living there, Dorothy participated in little theatre, acting, singing, and designing costumes. She was an avid golfer and worked as a private nurse for polio patients during the outbreak in the early 50s. She sang in the church choir, participated in art classes and art shows, hosted many social events for the soldiers on base, and studied political science at the University of the Philippines. She also traveled to Japan and Hong Kong. Upon returning to Vashon Island in 1956, Dorothy went to work for the Boeing Company. In 1958, she won first prize in the Boeing Art Show in the amateur division. She took up bowling and she attended night school studying engineering and drafting. She became a draftswoman at Washington Iron Works and then Robbins and Company, both located in Seattle. In 1964, Dorothy and Will divorced, and in 1967 Dorothy married James Graves. They lived in Bellevue and Kenmore. Jim and Dorothy traveled in Europe and throughout the U.S. They especially loved camping and boating, but their favorite destination was Death Valley. Dorothy also liked to work in her yard and enjoyed gardening. In her home, she loved to host dinners, bake treats, and prepare canned goods to share with her family and friends. Dorothy also enjoyed sewing for her family, making wedding gowns, school clothes, and business attire. In 1984, Jim accepted a job with the Merillat Industries, and he and Dorothy relocated to Rapid City, SD. Dorothy joined the Black Hills Quilting Guild and became an avid quilter. She served as the guild’s president for several years. She made many beautiful quilts and won many ribbons at county fairs for her efforts. Dorothy started her own fabric business creating her own dies to make uniquely colored fabric for quilters all over the U.S. After Jim’s retirement in 1993, they returned to their home in Kenmore. Jim passed in June 2008 and Dorothy remained in their home until 2010 when she returned to Vashon Island. She spent the last years of her life at Vashon Community Care Center. Dorothy is survived by her four daughters: Cathy Siegrist (Rich) and Marian Spencer (Wilbur) of Vashon, Sharon Baker (Bill) of Eagle, ID and Nancy Beall (Tom, Jr.) of Malott, 12 grandchildren, 14 great-grandchildren and 2 great-great grandchildren. She is also survived by four sisters: Patricia Kresge (Conrad) of Parker, AZ, Rosalie Law (Jack) of Monroe, Arlene Landers of Vashon, and Diana Nelson (Jerry) of Cle Elum, many nieces and nephews, her late husband’s daughter-in-law, Pat Graves of Woodinville, and Pat’s children and grandchildren. Dorothy was preceded in death by her parents, her husband, and 7 siblings: Evelyn, Roy, Francis, June, Violet, Grace and Freddie. There will be no service per Dorothy’s request.

SHORELINE CONTINUED FROM 1

DPER. “If they ignore the letters, at some point there will be follow-up.” A King County study of the shoreline of Water Resources Inventory Area 9 (WRIA 9) — an area that stretches from Federal Way to Seattle and includes the GreenDuwamish Watershed and Vashon and Maury islands — found that since 2005, the area has had 1,500 feet of shoreline armoring removed. However, the 92 miles of shoreline in WRIA 9 — about half of which is on Vashon — had more shoreline than that armored and saw a net loss of 70 feet of natural shoreline. Kollin Higgins, an ecologist with the county Department of Natural Resources and Parks and the author of the study, said he hadn’t parsed out the data for Vashon, but he believes the island has seen approximately 500 feet of shoreline armored in recent years, and like WRIA 9, it lost natural shoreline overall. Some of the recently removed armoring at Dockton Park may not have been included in the study. The study, done on behalf of WRIA 9’s salmon recovery group, also found that the majority of new bulkheads installed in WRIA 9 were on Vashon, as was most of the work on docks and the majority of shoreline clearing. Clearing trees and other vegetation on the shoreline or on bluffs above the shore can also be harmful, Higgins explained, as vegetation holds slopes in place and contributes to a healthy beach habitat. Doug Osterman, the coordinator for WRIA 9, a multi-agency group working toward salmon recovery, called the results of the survey disappointing, especially considering the bulkhead removal work that has occurred throughout WRIA 9. He noted an effort some years ago that removed over 1,000 feet of bulkhead at Seahurst Park in Burien. “That’s all going on, but we’re never going to catch up to it if there’s more and

To that end, the King Conservation District is planning a shoreline homeowners workshop on Vashon next month, hoping to teach homeowners about viable alternatives to work that harms the marine habitat. On some properties, bulkheads can even be removed, though so far few on Vashon have opted to do so.

Run for Vashon Island’s Unofficial Mayor

Rabourn said he hopes the class, similar to one offered a few years ago, will be the first of many. “I know shoreline landowners are really connected to the water. … I believe they care deeply about it,” Rabourn said. “But when they clear their shoreline vegetation or they put in shoreline armoring, they’re causing a significant impact to what they love. I think we need more education for folks about what that means.” Other environmentalists, however, are calling for both education and significant policy changes. Tom Dean, director of the VashonMaury Island Land Trust, said he worries that the only way to reverse the trend of losing natural shoreline is to stop new bulkheads from being built. He noted that in other states on the West Coast and on the Washington coast, new bulkheads are no longer allowed. “If we’re losing ground here, what other counties are losing ground?” Dean said. “Eventually if that trend continues, you end up basically with a bathtub with hard edges, and that’s not going to support the food web.” Amy Carey, executive director of Sound Action, agreed. She said that the watchdog group, formerly Preserve Our Islands, is shocked by how rarely government agencies deny permits for shoreline development. The practice doesn’t seem informed by current science, she said, but would take political action to change. “Regulations should be that you cannot build a bulkhead unless there’s a specific set of circumstances,” she said. “Bulkheads should be the exception rather than the rule.” At the same time, Carey said, the WRIA 9 study is a good starting point to understand the current conditions in King County and the problems facing Puget Sound. “It’s just critical,” she said. “If we’re going to protect Puget Sound, we have to know what is where and what is going on on the ground.” Osterman said it is too soon to know if King County will decide make policy changes, as officials have yet to formally discuss the study results. He noted that the study suggests that an additional study of why shoreline residents fail to seek permits for their work could be valuable. “We can find out a little bit more about the social aspects, why there’s such a strong lack of really being responsible to the information to restore Puget Sound,” he said.

A Shining Star on Vashon Island for 30 years! Available for Adoption Taz, born 6/13 is still just a kitten of a cat, full of energy and fun. He is a self possessed cat who gets along with anyone and everyone. He likes to be held and petted. He had good house manners too. Taz is just a purrfect kind of cat who would be great for a family. Taz came to VIPP on 4/27/14. A bouncing happy little girl, Katie is looking for a family to call her own. People are her favorites, but she has met her four resident cockers in her foster home with friendliness--not threatening and not threatened. Sheâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s eager to become a permanent family member, able to run and explore without a leash and sleep near a fireplace or on your bed. Katie has weathered cataract and dental surgeries with aplomb. Not surprisingly, the results reflect her flawless personality. To meet Katie, please call Barb at 206-567-5222.

Dear VIPP, When 14 year old Kita disappeared, VIPP jumped into action. Believing she had fallen over a cliff, we initiated a search of the nearly vertical slope and when we located her, VIPP supporters carried her inch by inch back up the slope. Amazing as this was, this was not Kitaâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s happy ending because a few months later her owner left her behind - moving away without a backward glance. A kind couple, heartbroken Kita might leave the world not knowing where her love went, took her in and reached out to VIPP for help. Kita was old and arthritic and many rescue organizations would have turned her away or suggested euthanasia over treatment. But VIPP goes the distance for animals in need so we stepped up to support the good folks who had stepped up for Kita by helping with medical and food expenses. Kita thrived under their care â&#x20AC;&#x201C; living out the last year of her life as a part of their family with an abundance of love. Now thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s what we call a happy ending.

Kita
