FIRST CREEK MIDDLE SCHOOL STARTS OFF SCHOOL WITH PARADE By John Larson firstname.lastname@example.org
n a warm, sunny afternoon on Aug. 31, First Creek Middle School held its first back-to-school parade in the nearby Salishan neighborhood.

BACK TO SCHOOL. Children at Whittier Elementary School had new backpacks and school clothes for the first day of school, while parents snapped their fair share of photos to record the day. Herman the turtle in Lori Gallo’s kindergarten class clearly had mixed emotions about the start of a new school year as he did his ritual walk around the carpet one last time before the children arrived.

Alaska Street reopens with smooth and scenic drive By Steve Dunkelberger email@example.com
The end of delayed traffic and periodic road closures is here. City of Tacoma staffers, elected officials and area residents held a ribbon cutting to celebrate the completion of the “green” Alaska Street Roadway Project on Aug. 29. The roadwork included the addition of sidewalks, curb ramps, bike lanes, street lights, landscaping, porous concrete pavement and pedestrian islands to improve driver and walker safety as well as be better for the environment with improved storm mains, sanitary sewer mains and power lines. The roadway is now set to receive a “greenroads” certification for its environmental features. The almost complete reworking of the 5,400 feet of roadway between South 56th and South 72nd streets began in late 2011, which meant months of lane closures and detours. This segment was the last stretch of new roadway that now spans from South 38th to South 72nd streets and was coordinated with the nearby Metro Parks roster of improvements for Wapato Lake Park. “It was really fun to watch the park redevelopment alongside this project,” Deputy Mayor Joe Lonergan said, noting that the new road not only provides a scenic view of the park but the sidewalk intentionally dips into the park property to tie the park more into the neighborhood and make for a more enjoyable walk along the roadway. Money for the roadwork came from the City of X See ROAD / page A7

real and lasting difference in the lives of people with AIDS – and also their friends and family and those who have lost loved ones to the disease – by showing that a lot of people care. It’s enjoyable because the Walk is family friendly, fun and festive, made so by the many volunteers who see to it that participants are made to feel appreciated and valued for giving of their
time and money. In short – walk in the AIDS Walk and it will leave a lasting impression you won’t soon forget. This year the Walk’s reach embraces not just clients in Thurston County as well, as it has for years, but clients in Lewis County too. This reflects the recent outreach expansion of Pierce County AIDS Foundation (PCAF), X See WALK / page A8

POTHOLE OF THE WEEK
82nd and Hosmer Tacoma has a tremendous pothole problem, and the city knows it. During the past couple of years, the city has acknowledged this issue by spending millions of dollars in major arterial repairs with the council’s “pothole initiative,” and in 2010, routine maintenance by Tacoma’s Grounds and Maintenance Division completed street repairs on 229,638 square feet of road. In 2011, the city repaired about 150,000 more square feet of road riddled with holiness, and is continuing those efforts well in to 2012. And while that may sound like a lot of ground, new holes pop up – or return – each and every day, which means a pothole-free road might never exist in Tacoma. With the help of our readers and our dedicated Pothole Pig, we will continue to showcase some of the city’s biggest and best potholes through our weekly homage to one of T-Town’s most unnerving attributes. Help the Pothole Pig by e-mailing your worst pothole suggestions to SaveOurStreets@tacomaweekly.com. Potholes in need of repair can be reported to the City of Tacoma by calling (253) 591-5495.
Many “classic” cars can be given the title of “ahead of their time,” but only the DeLorean can claim the title on the silver screen. The 1983 DeLorean DMC 12 was made famous by the “Back to the Future” Hollywood movie franchise that featured the rear-engine, gullwinged car as its time machine. The brainchild of John DeLorean, the Pontiac manager responsible for the GTO and the Firebird Trans-Am, DeLorean Motor Co. was ahead of its time in other ways. What made it stand out first was the fact that the car maker was partially financed by the British government as a way to boost the economy of Northern Ireland, which was suffering from high unemployment. The V-6 engine was developed by Peugeot, Renault and Volvo, with the plan being that all four car manufacturers would be able to share the engine development costs. The car itself was designed by the Italian designer Giorgetto Giugiaro and was most known for its flip-up doors that created a bird-like shape and its fiberglass and brushed steel body that was meant to never have to be painted, was corrosion-proof and

would be resistant to blemishes. It was ahead of its time when first made in 1980, maybe too far ahead. At a base cost of $25,000, it was a bit expensive for middle-class car buyers and the company’s “creative financing” forced the Brits to pull the plug after just two years of production during the deepest slump in the car market since the Great Depression.
DeLorean Motor Co. went bankrupt in late 1982, after its founder was arrested on drug trafficking charges. He was later found not guilty, but the publicity of the trial had doomed the company. Only 8,742 units were produced, although the DeLorean Motor Co. in Texas owns the rights to the name and manufactures cars on demand from reproduction parts.

Bus boosters and transit lovers are showing the math of bus services if the sales tax increase package facing voters in November fails. When a similar ballot measure failed to sway voters last year, Pierce Transit was projecting 418,000 service hours without an increase in the sales tax rate. That level of service dropped again in the spring, when several outlying areas opted out of the agency borders altogether. Bonney Lake, Buckley, DuPont, Orting and Sumner, as well as portions of unin-

corporated Pierce County chose to be removed from Pierce Transit’s boundary, largely because they were located within the taxing district but were not directly served with bus routes. The service level projected in May was 260,000
hours. As the economic forecast for the agency continues to lag, service level predictions have dropped to just 197,000 hours by 2017, Pierce Transit Commissioner and Gig Harbor City Councilmember Derek Young wrote on his blog.

“That’s 75 percent of 1980 service hours and about a third of the 2010 budget,” he wrote. Pierce Transit had been providing some 623,000 hours of service before the recession. “We are cutting the meat of the core of the system,” Young said. “But that is the reality of the situation we will have if this thing doesn’t pass.” Pierce Transit is largely funded by a .06 percent sales tax, which is one of the lower rates of urbanized areas of the state. The ballot measure would raise that to .09 percent, or about nine cents for every $10 purchase. Young fears that such deep cuts after another failed ballot measure if voters do not support the measure would mean the slow death of the agency as buses become less frequent and riders seek other ways to get to work or to shops, which would lead to a downward spiral. Young called it a “negative feedback loop.” “The service becomes so inefficient and difficult to use, riders start abandoning it,” he said. “That, in turn, reduces fare box revenue as well as federal funds which base part of their formula on ridership X See TRANSIT / page A7

Five teenagers were arrested on Aug. 30 after allegedly breaking into a school and stealing school supplies. The incident happened at Grant Elementary School, located at 1018 N. Prospect St. Suspects climbed onto the roof and found an unlocked door. Three boys went inside and stole pens, pencils and erasers. Two girls waited on the roof. An alarm went off and officers responded. The boys were taken to Remann Hall and the girls were released to their parents.
A man was arrested on Aug. 29 on suspicion of robbing a grocery store and convenience store after police recognized him from surveillance camera footage. The first robbery occurred on Aug. 28 at Olympic Grocery, 6601 South Tacoma Way. The suspect entered the store, pulled a gun and demanded cash. He fled on foot. A K-9 unit was unable to track him. The second crime occurred on Aug. 29 at the 7-Eleven at 3005 S. Tyler St. A few hours later an officer spotted the suspect walking into a McDonaldâ€™s on Pacific Avenue. He recognized him from the description from the surveillance video. Money taken during the two robberies was found inside a garbage can in the McDonaldâ€™s.
Federal agents and local law enforcement personnel arrested more than 20 people on Aug. 28 suspected of trafficking in Oxycodone, a highly addictive prescription painkiller. Several suspects are still on the loose, including Vincent L. Fields of Tacoma. He has been indicted for conspiracy to distribute controlled substances. According to the Federal Bureau of Investigations, members of the ring frequently traveled to Northern California, where they would acquire 2,000 to 5,000 pills per trip. Members sold the pills around the Puget Sound region.
On Aug. 27 Tacoma Police Department detectives and SWAT teams from TPD and Pierce County Sheriffâ€™s Department served search warrants at four locations. They are part on an investigation into a series of robberies that began in December 2011, along with other crimes involving drugs and weapons. Five alleged gang members have been charged in a string of home-invasion robberies that targeted Asian families. Nolan Chouap, Soy Oeung, Alicia Ngo, Azariah Ross and Azias Ross face multiple counts of robbery, burglary and unlawful imprisonment. They allegedly belong to a Cambodian street gang called Original Loco Boyz. Investigators believe they targeted families of Vietnamese, Filipino and Cambodian descent in Tacoma between January and Aug. 26. In each instance, two to three members broke into a home, threatened occupants, tied them up and stole cash and valuable items. According to TPD, the victims were known to keep money, jewelry and other valuables in their homes.

Washington State Department of Transportation (WSDOT) reports that the next few weeks will be especially busy at the Interstate 5/State Route 16 Eastbound Nalley Valley project site. Crews will once again be lifting girders into place, this time for a new bridge that will carry southbound I-5 traffic to South 38th Street. Next week the work will take place during the day, and contractor Mowat Construction will continue to need single-lane closures on South Center Street, South Tacoma Way and South Sprague Avenue. During the week of Sept. 10 crews will place new girders over the Eastbound lanes of SR 16. That work will require total closures of eastbound SR 16 at Union Avenue from 11 p.m. to 4 a.m. each night from Sept. 10-13. Eastbound SR 16 will also be closed from 12:30-5:30 a.m. on Sept. 15. Please note that the Union Avenue on-ramp to eastbound SR 16 will also be closed on each of these nights from 9 p.m. to 4:30 a.m. Monday through Thursday, and 11 p.m. Friday to 7 a.m. Saturday. A new project is about to start a little further south on I-5 near DuPont where WSDOT will replace about 4.5 miles of concrete median barrier. Next week crews will have single-lane closures at night to install construction signs, and starting the week of Sept. 10 motorists will see multiple-lane closures during night hours.
Superintendent Carla Santorno will recommend that the Tacoma School Board approve the hiring of Amanda Thomas as the director of Community Partnership, Academic Equity and Achievement at its Sept. 13 board meeting. Thomas replaces Karyn Osborne, who retired following the last school year. She will report directly to Santorno and oversee an office with a revised title and focus. That office now will focus more on the Achievement Gap Action Plan and developing partnerships with community organizations, Santorno said. Previous duties, such as coordinating the program placement process for new initiatives and program evaluation process for assessing the effectiveness of existing programs, will shift to Toni Pace, assistant superintendent for K-12 Support. â€œWe have a good infrastructure and plan in place to make more progress in eliminating the achievement gap,â€? Santorno said. â€œBut, over the last two years, we have not achieved the outcomes for kids that Iâ€™d like
to see. I want us to accomplish more in this area under Amandaâ€™s leadership.â€? â€œIâ€™m thrilled to join the team at Tacoma Public Schools and for the opportunity to add my voice to the vision of creating educational equity and improving educational results for Tacoma students,â€? Thomas said. â€œMy goal is to build upon the great foundation that has been set and work with educators, parents, community and young people in supporting the success of every student.â€? Thomas served as public health educator with the Kitsap County Health District from 1995 to 2004. She worked for the Valley of the Sun United Way in Arizona from 2004 to 2007. Thomas served in the Arizona Governorâ€™s Office for Children, Youth and Families under Governor Janet Napolitano and was retained under Governor Janice Brewer from 2007 to 2011. From 2011 to the present, Thomas worked in education policy for Schoolâ€™s Out Washington. Thomas earned a Bachelor of Arts degree with an emphasis in public policy and law from The Evergreen State College-Tacoma in 2004.
Crews have begun a substantial upgrade to the irrigation main at Point Defiance Park. Construction to replace nearly 7,000 lineal feet of main line â€“ roughly the length of 20 football fields â€“ is expected to take approximately eight weeks. The work will affect pathways and turf from the Pearl Street entrance through the grassy bowl, pond and garden areas, as well as around the Visitors Center, Pagoda and tennis courts. Parking and the exit road on the backside of the gardens will be closed. It may be necessary to temporarily reroute traffic for a day or two at a time as connecting lines that run under roadways are replaced. â€œOur contractors will do everything possible to minimize the impact on visitors,â€? said Park Superintendent Vito Iacobazzi. â€œBut, we want to prepare folks that this will be a major undertaking and will create some temporary inconveniences.â€? The replacement is an important longterm solution to address leakage issues that have persisted, despite repairs over the past decade. Millions of gallons flow through the leaking main to irrigate this portion of the park. The upgrade is expected to reduce water usage by roughly 20 percent in this area. Replacing the main will reduce leaks, helping conserve water and eliminating ongoing repairs. The project is part of a comprehensive energy service contract that Metro Parks has entered into with the State
of Washington, which is designed to provide conservation and operating efficiency benefits.

Rowlands played key role in Tacoma history
Washington needs more Lyme disease awareness By Jessica Alonzo I was bitten by a tick in 2008 and just like most on the West Coast was not worried about it. Why should we be? All we ever hear is â€œthere is no Lyme on the West Coast.â€? Even when I got the bullâ€™s eye rash on my arm I still assumed that is was just a spider bite. I had no idea how my life would change during this camping trip. Lyme disease is a major public health problem and growing crisis. It is the most prevalent bug-borne illness. According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, new cases are reported in about 20,000 people yearly and this number represents a 10-fold underestimate. Lyme disease is caused by a complex bacteria carried and spread by ticks. The Lyme bacteria has the ability to evade the immune system and hide themselves deep within tissues and migrate throughout the body, causing a multi-system illness that can be baffling to many physicians. Lyme is called â€œthe great imitator.â€? Many people, especially on the West Coast, do not know what to look for or how to treat it. The result is that one tiny tick the size of the period at the end of a sentence can cause symptoms from muscle and joint pain to heart disease to neurological and
even psychiatric illness. Lyme patients may be misdiagnosed as having other serious diseases such as lupus, multiple sclerosis, rheumatoid arthritis and psychiatric disorders. The message I want to get across is Lyme disease may be hard to diagnose and difficult, if not impossible, to fully get rid of if not caught early. People can go months, even years, before they ever figure out what is wrong. Many doctors will do a blood test for Lyme that is 45 percent accurate! If they have a negative test result they will never look further and rule it out completely. There is only one lab in the United States that accurately tests for Lyme using the western blot. Furthermore, a person with Lyme disease may also have co-infections like babesiosis, ehrlichiosis, bartonella, mycoplasma and tularemia, to name a few. As if having Lyme is not enough! These co-infections often require different antibiotic therapy compared to Lyme. My own story is like many who have Lyme. Visits to countless doctors only to be told I have fibromyalgia, chronic fatigue, depression, multiple sclerosis, lupus and asthma. For me, I knew none of those added up. I was finally told that it was all in my head. â€œYou have a family, you are healthy, you work full
time, are you lacking attention?â€? That is the final question I was asked before leaving that office and firing him as my doctor for good. It has taken a tough few years of pain and symptom flare-ups but I found a great Lyme literate doctor in Seattle. This doctor has saved my life and my daughterâ€™s life. My little girl was born with Lyme and one co-infection and had a rough start and hard first two years of her life. Multiple health issues and seizures. But she turned 3 in July and she is improving daily. I have always heard that treating Lyme is a marathon not a sprint and boy is that the truth. We need continued education of all medical doctors and nurses about the array of Lyme symptoms and its related infections in order to increase the number of health care providers who can recognize and treat these illnesses. When the AIDS epidemic came to light, activists screamed for attention to get testing and medical care. I hope Lyme patients will stand up and fight to get awareness out there. We need better testing, better treatment and more educated health professionals. In my lifetime this will happen. I will make this happen for my daughter. Jessica Alonzo is a Tacoma resident.
Letters to the Editor Dear Editor,
I was born and raised in Oklahoma, and even though I have lived in Tacoma long enough to have moss on the back of my neck, Oklahoma is still dear to me. So it really offended me that your guest editorialist Bill Johnston would stereotype all Oklahomans as backward, â€œgawd-fearinâ€? Americans (â€œOklahoma getting the summer it deserves,â€? TW 8/24). Well, we are Americans, just as much as he is. I am in full agreement that U.S. Senator James Inhofe â€“ and much of America, including many Oklahomans and some Washingtonians â€“ is out of touch about climate change. However, is it fair to condemn an entire state based on the comments of one of its citizens? Should I listen to Glen Beck and conclude that all Washingtonians believe President Barack Obama is a Muslim terrorist? I fully understand the distaste with Oklahoma, but why wish misfortune on others? Can Johnston honestly be happy to see farmers lose their crops and livestock just because he does not like what one of their elected representatives said or did? We will all be affected by the increase in prices at the grocery store soon, so he should not be too happy to see others suffer. Finally, Johnston claims that Oklahomaâ€™s economy â€œwhich usually sucks anyway is getting worse.â€? Truth is, Oklahoma lags behind Washington only slightly. Oklahoma ranks 13th on the Forbes list of best states to do business. Washington is seventh, but still, Oklahoma is ahead of 37 other states. How bad does that suck? And on www.truecostblog.com Oklahoma ranks number 23, only three places behind Washington. Johnston can feel free to attack Inhofe all he wants â€“ I would have never voted for Inhofe â€“ but leave the stereotyping and condemnation of all Oklahomans out of it. His entire argument is based on a hasty generalization that all Oklahomans agree with their elected official, and it appears his thesis is that Oklahomans are being punished by God because they do not like big government. That is just plain crazy and Johnstonâ€™s tiresome whining has got this Okie plum tuckered out.
Randall Martin Tacoma Dear Editor,
I have never met a more kind, caring, generous staff as Puyallup Tribe has at the Elders Center. They are a diverse group, yet they work together to ensure the elders are cared for every day. They make everyone feel welcome, they remember the little details about individuals and they have the utmost respect for everyoneâ€™s privacy. Their professionalism is top of the line. I hope the elders know what a gem they have and remember to tell them how appreciated they are. My husband is a tribal elder and we both know how hard things would be without their help and guidance with his health issues and personal needs. Whenever we feel the need to pick up a phone or pay a visit to the staff at the Elders Center, there is always somebody to help us with whatever we need. We have had many questions answered, help with medical equipment, a friendly piece of advice when needed and much more. We just want to say thanks to each and everyone there. Life is much easier with them in it!
Virginia Young Puyallup Dear Editor,
After 24 years of teaching students on parole and probation for Tacoma Public Schools, I am often asked, â€œWhat can we do to prevent a child from being involved in crime and dropping out of school?â€?
Incarcerated youth are disconnected from community. They are unemotionally adrift in their own diluted world of unaccountability. Their negative decision-making processes are self-justified. Disconnected youth do not hold themselves accountable to a society that they are detached from. The student disconnection can be traced to the 1980s, when urban school districts transitioned from the junior high seventh, eighth and ninth grades to the middle school system of sixth, seventh and eighth grades. Sadly, many districts eliminated sports, shop classes and extracurricular activities. As a result, disconnected 14- and 15-year-old ninth-graders are dropping out of school and involved in criminal activities. The increased social disconnection is traced to the adoption of the middle school system and elimination of extracurricular activities. Junior highs provided enrichment extracurricular programs to help students build connections and a strong self-esteem. Teachers and coaches can instill honesty, dedication, camaraderie, morals and values. The middle school system has failed. It is time to admit it and return to the junior high system. The overused excuse that it is the familiesâ€™ fault is correct, but we, as a society, as a neighborhood, as individuals, can use public education to help youth be a reflection of Americaâ€™s norms and values.
Darrell Hamlin Tacoma Dear Editor,
In 2008, the Tacoma School Board voted three to two not to televise or video record its meetings â€“ citing expense and supposed lack of community interest. My friends and I responded by launching a campaign to make Tacoma Public Schools more transparent and more accessible to working parents. Over the next eight months, we e-mailed and called board members, spoke at citizensâ€™ forum and stood in the back of the boardroom with a video camera and tripod before uploading every meeting to our website (the cost of this was less than $200). By April 2009, the camera-shy board relented, and by a unanimous vote of five to zero created the free video service that is now available on TPSâ€™ website. Our experience underscores an important theme that goes to the core idea behind educating children at public expense. School is the foundation of our democracy, and that foundation is undermined by policies that result in exclusion. Initiative 1240 is one such policy. I-1240 would create a partisan school board of five state representatives â€“ appointed by the governor â€“ who would single-handedly decide if, where, when and what kind of charter schools will be created in Washington. These schools are not accountable to local elected school boards, but are funded by local levy dollars. In other words, I-1240 would result in taxation without representation â€“ which our founding fathers rightly identified as tyranny. I can literally think of dozens of reasons why readers should vote no on I-1240, but suffice it to say that if this initiative passes, efforts to promote transparency in government and democracy in education will take a significant blow. As someone who personally spent four years in an alternative school for students with special needs, I know from painful experience how important it is for parents to be able to advocate for their children, and for teachers to be given the support they need to achieve the Herculean tasks before them. Please vote no on I-1240.

A key figure in the history of Tacoma city government passed away on Aug. 29. Dave Rowlands, the second city manager in the City of Destiny, died of natural causes at the age of 97. Few individuals have had the type of lasting impact on Tacoma as Rowlands. He served as city manager from 1956 to 1970. Rowlands was hired shortly after Tacoma switched to a council/manager form of government. He served during a time when many American cities were in decline and the federal government sought to turn that around with large infusions of grants. Rowlands secured federal money to establish a bus system, develop sewage treatment plants and build two downtown parking garages. An indication of the level of respect Rowlands commanded in government circles was his selection in 1996 to serve as president of International City Managers Association. One example of his ongoing impact was his professional relationship and personal friendship with former Tacoma Mayor Bill Baarsma, who as a young man served an internship with Rowlands. Baarsma went on to serve eight years on Tacoma City Council in the 1990s and returned to city hall to serve as mayor from 2002 through 2009. Baarsma and Rowlands formed a strong friendship and stayed in contact with each other. Just a few months ago, Baarsma arranged a meeting between Rowlands and City Manager T.C. Broadnax, who took over the city manager position earlier this year. We imagine Broadnax, who is in his first position as top administrator of a city, picked up a few pointers from Rowlands on the finer points of the job.
Good news on Thea Foss Waterway We are pleased to hear that permits for the Thea Foss Waterway hotel project will be issued soon. The project has been delayed on several fronts, from economic to political to environmental reasons. The idea for a hotel on the waterway has been promoted for years by Foss Waterway Development Association, the city-affiliated agency charged with attracting developers to the revitalized waterfront. The first and second developers who tried to build projects on this parcel experienced financial problems and walked away. This may be a case of the third time is the charm. That would be Hollander Investments of Bellingham, which operates several hotels in Western Washington, including the Courtyard by Marriott downtown. The union that represents workers at unionized hotels, including Hotel Murano, has strongly opposed the Foss project because the existing Marriott is nonunion and they presume the Marriott Residence Inn planned for the waterfront would also employ nonunion workers. The Murano ownership has tried to stop the project, claiming the planned hotels would be aesthetically unsuited for the waterfront. The last legal obstacle to the project was removed earlier this summer when Washington State Supreme Court declined to hear an appeal of the issuing of shoreline permits. Tacomaâ€™s gleaming, modern convention center is an attractive meeting space. But it has struggled to book some larger events because of a lack of nearby hotel rooms. One of its primary competitors is the convention center in Spokane. While that city has essentially the same population as Tacoma, it has about 10 times as many hotel rooms in its downtown. Those hotels range from upscale to lower budget to price ranges in between, offering convention attendees with varying budgets a variety of choices. Plans for the waterway property call for the Marriott facility and a second hotel to be built at some future date. In sunny weather like we have enjoyed recently, the distance from the waterway to the convention center would be a pleasant walk. During the rainy seasons, shuttle vans likely will be needed to transport conventioneers, but that can be easily arranged. The city government wants to send a message that Tacoma is open for business. The obstacles thrown in front of Hollander on this project have sent mixed messages. It is time this project moves forward.

When Spaceworks launched in 2009, the joint initiative of the City of Tacoma and Seattle arts group Shunpike had a goal to activate empty storefronts through artistic enterprises. Since then, the program has given some local artists the opportunity to create successful businesses for themselves that they may not have had the resources to start on their own. On Sept. 15, the community will have an opportunity to support the effort by attending the Spaceworks Cakewalk fundraiser to raise money and build support for the program. Cakewalk also includes an artwalk, featuring pieces made by a variety of local artists. Winners of each round of the cakewalk and artwalk will be able to choose their own piece. Bakers and artists have donated items to be used as prizes, and highlights include a hand-made cake stand by Bella Balls owner Diane Hanson â€“ valued at about $1,700. Tickets for the artwalk are $20, and tickets to the cakewalk are $5. Additional pieces will be available from local artists Sean Alexander, Jessica Spring, Chandler Oâ€™Leary, Janet Marcavage and more. Organizers hope to raise at least $5,000 from the fundraiser. â€œThis is not a huge fundraising goal, but weâ€™re also trying to gather community support, as well,â€? said Spaceworks Tacoma Coordinator Rebecca Solverson. â€œIt doesnâ€™t cost much to run the program, and this kind of money will make a big difference.â€? Solverson recommends arriving early to the event if you are hoping to win your favorite art pieces. So far, there are about 30 pieces to â€œwalkâ€? off, along with about 20 cakes. Drinks and refreshments will also be available throughout the night. The nightâ€™s festivities will also feature performances by DJ Broam, Mr. Melanin and BareFoot Collective. â€œWe are so excited about the support weâ€™ve received so far from the community,â€? she said. â€œIâ€™m looking forward to celebrating with everyone.â€? The event will take place at 311 S. 7th St., in the home of one of the organizationâ€™s newest creative enterprises, Electric Branch Creative.

closed off to allow the marchers to safely walk their route. The parade began in the parking lot of First Creek, which is on Portland Avenue. As they walked along East 44th Street, they briefly stopped in front of Lister Elementary School, where they were greeted by staff of that school. All along the route, marchers tossed candy to children and also handed out school supplies. â€œThis is an effort to bring a sense of community to the school,â€? said Michael Joshua, an instructional facilitator of math and science at First Creek. He said the parade helps children to know they are welcomed and respected at the school. Rachel Smith-Mosul used to be a teacher at the old Gault Middle School, which closed upon First Creekâ€™s opening. She taught at First Creek for three years before
accepting an administrative position in Tacoma Public Schools. She was pleased to be back in the part of town where she used to teach and happy to see partners such as the YMCA and Metro Parksâ€™ Sparx program involved in the event. â€œThis will grow every year,â€? she predicted. Members of Tacoma Urban League also participated in the parade. After the parade, the marchers gathered in the cafeteria at First Creek. Principal Brad Brown thanked all who participated. He introduced the man he asked to be grand marshal, Josh Garcia. This summer he began his new job as deputy superintendent for the district. â€œThis is a great day to be a First Creek Eagle,â€? Garcia told the audience. He discussed some of his goals for the district, reading aloud a list of priorities. Garcia said he has high expectations for First Creek students and hopes they all take advanced placement classes when they move on to Lincoln High School.

DYNAMIC DUO. Kieran and Sherri Murry are the co-founders of Ignite-U.
Couple seeks to inspire people to think big By John Larson email@example.com
Kieran and Sherri Murry want their fellow Pierce County residents to be inspired to make improvements, be it to their business, family or community. So they created something to provide space for that inspiration to occur. They are the founders of Ignite-U, a series of events that combine motivational speakers and networking opportunities. About 350 attended the last event in Lakewood in August. One speaker was Chris Caillier, who became inspired by a speaker at an Ignite-U event in March. It led him to fly to Africa, where he spent several months meeting with families in need and raising funds to assist them. The Murrys own a marketing company. Sherri said they both closely observed the recession and the
impact it had, causing many businesses to shut down. That made them ponder how many were victims of the economy or fizzled out due to other factors, such as a death in the family, a divorce or a dispute with a business partner. The couple has traveled to seminars in the past 10 years, where they have been inspired by a variety of speakers. â€œWe wanted to bring those speakers up here to the Northwest to give people here the same exposure we had,â€? Sherri said. The goal is for attendees to â€œbe ignitedâ€? by what they hear. The next event is the Ignite-U Business Expo on Sept. 13 at Emerald Queen Casino in Tacoma. This is the fifth event in 2012. Sheri said each event has a different nature, so those who attend will all get a different experience each time. This next event will

differ in that it will not have speakers. It will be more about mingling and networking, according to Sheri Murry. There will be $6,000 worth of appetizers and Harmon Brewery will bring a special Ignite-U brew. The event is free to the public to attend, as are all in the series, which is funded by sponsors, she noted. This event is meant to showcase the sponsors. Sherri Murry said people who attend the events include business owners and human resources professionals as well as people who may be looking for work who want to interact with such people. â€œThey are open to anyone. We want people to have fun, move forward and think bigger.â€? The expo event will feature music by Johnny Cash tribute band Folsom Prism. For more information contact Sherri Murry at (253) 312-9301 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
The Alaska Street improvements were dearly needed as the roadway was beginning to require constant pothole repairs. â€œYou were really taking your life into your hands,â€? Mayor Marilyn Strickland said. The road often serves for a secondary route for drivers stuck in Interstate 5 traffic because it runs parallel to I-5 on Tacomaâ€™s South End, providing an option for people heading to and from downtown who are looking to avoid the gridlock along the interstate during commute times.
and efficiency.â€? Pierce Transit officials have made significant cuts in service since 2008 to stay ahead of the funding lag caused by the recession, with $111 million being cut in recent years. Routes have been closed around the system, including the special shuttles to the upcoming Western Washington Fair from surrounding areas as a way for people to avoid the gridlock of Main Street parking lots. The added congestion created by the lack of bus service to the fair could provide a glimpse of things to come if special event bus service cannot transport the tourists set to flood the area for the 2015 United States Open golf tournament set for Chambers Bay, or the Taste of Tacoma and Freedom Fair each year. â€œIf that happens, it would be the last PGA event in Pierce County,â€? Fife City Councilmember and Pierce Transit Commissioner Glenn Hull said. â€œOur citizens and our communities need transit to grow. We just canâ€™t do without transit.â€? Proposition 1 is opposed by one major business interest, Tacoma/Pierce County Chamber of Commerce. Its Board of Directors recently took this action. President and CEO Tom Pierson cited the impact the tax increase would have on the local economy. â€œThe chamber has long supported transit in Pierce County, even supplying the headquarters for the establishment of Pierce Transit decades ago,â€? he said. â€œUnfortunately, the proposed sales tax levels are simply unacceptable. As the chamber continues to welcome businesses and jobs to the area, we need to stay competitive with the communities around us,â€? According to the chamber, the sales tax rate in Tacoma and Pierce County is tied with King County and the cities of Seattle, Kirkland and Redmond as the highest in Washington. â€œHaving the highest sales tax rate in the state is not a distinction Tacoma/Pierce County would want to be known for, â€œ Pierson said. â€œBeing a community that preserves a reasonably business-and-economy friendly atmosphere is the sort of favorable distinction we should strive for instead.â€? Rob Johnson, executive director of Transportation Choices Coalition, said his organization has endorsed a yes vote on Proposition 1. The most recent round of cuts means many routes do not run after 7 p.m., Johnson said. Without revenue from the proposed tax increase, Pierce Transit may have to cut service by 50 percent of what it currently offers. â€œPeople in Pierce County would have fewer buses running on the streets in 2013 than they did in 1980,â€? he remarked. He points to the social justice angle of the situation, noting that more than half of riders live in households with incomes of less than $20,000 a year. These include veter-
ans, senior citizens and students. Cuts to routes correspond to cuts to shuttle service for the disabled. Johnson added he feels more service cuts would dampen economic development. The ballot measure failing would raise the question of whether Pierce Transit would exist much longer, according to Johnson. Should that occur, Pierce County would be the largest county in the nation without a bus system. Endorsements supporting Proposition 1 have come from several labor and environmental groups, including Amalgamated Transit Union Local 758, Service Employees International Union Local 775, Coalition for Active Transportation, Future Wise, Pierce Conservation Voters and Sierra Club Tatoosh Chapter. The 27th Legislative District Democrats have endorsed it. Kate Whiting is campaign manager for Proposition One Restore Transit Now, which is pushing passage. She said a meeting is scheduled this weekend with Pierce County Republicans seeking their endorsement. Pierce Transit will be hosting a series of informational open houses for the public regarding Proposition 1. Area meetings include: Lakewood, Sept. 18, 6-7:30 p.m., Pierce Transit headquarters, 3720 96th St. S.W.; Gig Harbor, Sept. 19, 6-7:30 p.m. Gig Harbor Civic Center, 3510 Grandview St. Tacoma, Sept. 20, 5-6:30 p.m., city hall council chambers; Tacoma, Oct. 15, 5:30-7 p.m., South Tacoma Library, 3411 S. 56th St.; Parkland, Oct. 16, 6:30-8 p.m., Parkland Library, 13718 Pacific Ave.

which has organized and produced the AIDS Walk since 1991. This past January United Communities AIDS Network (UCAN), headquartered in Olympia, became part of PCAF. â€œWe have assumed all services that have been done by UCAN,â€? said PCAF Executive Director Duane Wilkerson. â€œWe also assumed their prevention program and weâ€™re keeping the office they have in Olympia.â€? He noted that AIDS Walk funds raised by residents in Thurston and Lewis counties will go to services for those living in these counties. What this means for AIDS Walk participants is that by giving up a Saturday morning to get out, walk and raise money, approximately 600 clients in three counties will be helped through the services and support PCAF gives to each of them â€“ from a ride to the doctor and hot meals
brought to those too sick to provide for themselves, to support groups, help with housing and even with writing a will. A not-for-profit, volunteer supported and community based organization, PCAFâ€™s overarching mission is to prevent HIV infection, assist persons affected by HIV/AIDS, address related health problems and combat associated stigma and discrimination. This is what AIDS Walk dollars go toward, and in the current fiscal climate of increased financial hardships affecting non-profits across the country. To date, walkers have raised more than $2 million. On PCAFâ€™s Facebook page, walk organizers are gathering inspirational stories from past walkers about why they participate. Jackie (last name withheld) writes in part: â€œI lost my only brother to AIDS on June 5, 1992. Not a day goes by I donâ€™t miss and remember him.â€? Walking in the AIDS Walk led Jackie on to more volunteer work cook-
ing dinner for the residents of Three Cedars, a housing facility for people with AIDS, on the first of each month. She writes that she will walk with her son and stepson, who first walked with her when they were little boys in the early 1990s. â€œThey are now 23 and 31!â€? she wrote. Those who may wish to tell their walk story can e-mail email@example.com or share in the comments section on PCAFâ€™s Facebook page. Walkers will also have a new place to gather and a new walk route this year. After more than two decades of holding the Walk in downtown Tacoma, Cheney Stadium is now the new venue for the event, offering ready-made gathering spaces for the more than 1,000 people expected to be there, ample free parking, and an unrestricted two-mile walk on an even surface suitable for walkers of any ability. â€œWe are really excited about our new venue,â€? Wilkerson said. The 2012 Walk route will include a lap around the stadium track and a nice walk on the Scott Pierson Trail. With just two weeks to go before the Walk happens, organizers are anticipating a lot of walkers and sponsors to sign up between now and Sept. 22. Registration for the AIDS Walk is open at www.piercecountyaids.org, where you can also sign up to sponsor a walker or team. You can even register as a â€œvirtual walkerâ€? for those who canâ€™t make it to the Walk itself. Next week, be sure and pick up your copy of Tacoma Weekly (a returning sponsor of the South Sound AIDS Walk) to read all about whatâ€™s on the program this year for the opening ceremony, awards, music, entertainment and more.

he Stadium Tigers might lack size, but they know their identity. Behind converted wide receiver Tre Scott at quarterback and small-butquick running back Nick Loftin – who accounted for 193 yards of offense and two touchdowns – the Tigers executed their Wing-T attack almost to perfection in a 34-12 season-opening win over Mount Tahoma on Aug. 31. “We’re a ground-and-pound team, even though we might be small in stature,” said Stadium head coach Jess Nelson. “Those two guys are the features of our offense.” The Tigers started with some trickery, recovering an onside kick on the opening kickoff and scoring on Scott’s one-yard plunge six plays later. After a three-and-out defensively, Loftin found the end zone on a seven-yard run late in the first quarter to make it 12-0. “Our line got off the ball really (well),” said Loftin, who stands at just 5-foot-6 and 155 pounds. “They did their job today, and that’s what made things work for all the running backs.” But the Thunderbirds responded, marching downfield on the legs of running back Zachary Holt, and Parshay Small finished an eight-play drive with a one-yard plunge. Holt led Mount Tahoma with nine carries for 65 yards, and added a 34-yard reception in the third quarter. Loftin scored again on the Tigers’ next drive, taking a counter in from 30 yards out to make it 19-6. The Tigers forced another three-and-out, and Scott connected with Jacob Bills for an 83-yard touchdown on the first play of the next drive to give Stadium a commanding 27-6 lead. The Thunderbirds almost snatched momentum before the half, driving all the way downfield only to have quarterback Michael Rollins come up an inch short of the goal line as time expired. “We talk a lot about momentum, and it has no favorites,” Nelson said. “There’s five or six plays that can determine a game, and going into halftime that was critical – on the goal line getting that stop.” The Thunderbirds twice drove deep into Stadium territory in the third quarter, but the Tigers’ defense held firm to stop Mount Tahoma on fourth down. Stadium then put the game away with a 16-play, 86-yard drive capped by Scott’s five-yard touchdown run to make it 34-6 midway through the fourth. Rollins connected with Jakob Wilson later for a 35-yard touchdown to provide the final margin. Loftin finished with 18 carries for

As local girls soccer teams return to the pitch, several have many questions to answer and holes to fill at key positions. Although a few dazzling stars graduated, there is still some high quality talent returning, and we highlight some of the key players after talking with local coaches.
The Lions appear poised to make another run to the state playoffs after falling in the state title game last fall, but will have to replace the goal-scoring ability of Narrows 4A MVP Stephanie Hamilton and other key players. Senior first team all-league forward Danielle Nurmi provides a solid offensive threat up front and will be expected to carry the scoring load, and sophomore Kaylee Kebba leads a solid group of younger players. “It’s going to be interesting because we’re going to have to see how our young players adjust and step into leadership roles,” said head coach Joe Waters. “They’re going to have to grow up quickly.” Junior Hope Fleckner will lead the Lions in the midfield, and senior Lauren Fricke will be counted on to head up the defense. Senior goalkeeper Kiley Adams also returns after posting nine shutouts last year.

Questions abounded for the Wilson Rams entering the 2012 season, but after all was said and done, coach Don Clegg had several of them answered on Aug. 31 as Wilson cruised to a 45-14 win over the Decatur Gators at Stadium Bowl. “We were hoping for a decent start and we got one,” said the veteran Ram head man. “I can’t say enough about our
effort.” Clegg’s main concern was the size of the Gator interior lines, which were rendered ineffective in getting penetration in the Wilson backfield and opening holes for the Gators’ backs. After stopping the Gators on fourth down in Wilson territory on the first drive of the game, the Rams dented the scoreboard first when quarterback Moses Lewis scampered 13 yards and pitched to Ben Matz, who covered 22 more to the end zone. Wilson would never look back. “We knew we had talent, but we did not know how they would come out and respond early,” said Clegg. Starting at the Decatur 36-yard line late in the first quarter, Isaiah Simpson would take it in from 11 yards out and X See FOOTBALL / page A11
Count the Tigers as another team looking to replace some key graduates, and coach Lyndon Harrhy noted that the cast of young talent will have to learn on the fly. “In an ideal world, you’d like the younger players…to ease into it,” Harrhy said. “It is a challenge. Some of the girls will have to be thrown into the deep end and learn from the experience.” Stadium will be strong defensively, as junior goalkeeper Jordan Sallee returns along with senior first team all-league defender Bailey Edwards. Senior Allison Sedlacek is capable of playing in the midfield or as a defender, but Harrhy noted that the biggest challenge will be finding consistent goalscoring threats up front.
The Vikings will also be getting significant contributions from younger players this year, with six freshmen on the roster, but coach Frank Hankel notes that they have mostly all played at a high level of club soccer. Returning all-league midfielder Lanie Vinson is one of just four seniors on the squad, but will provide a solid presence in the middle. Junior midfielder Maddy Herron and junior midfielder/defender Alyssa Cabral will also be counted on to lead the Vikings. “It’s a real cohesive group,” Hankel said. “They enjoy playing with each other and being around each other. There’s going to be some learning curves with a young team – but there’s a lot of positive things.” Freshman forward Morgan Weaver is one of the talented young players who should step in and provide a scoring threat up front.

solid group of seniors and talented players returning at nearly every position. Star forward Angela Celedon graduated, but the Rams return senior Brittainy Canonica â€“ a second team, all-league pick â€“ and senior Alexa Blackman up front to provide a solid
scoring threat. Sophomore Megan Chambers is a rising talent who will add to the group up front. The Rams will be strong in the midfield, as seniors Kailey Norling and Avery Smalls will lead the group, and junior Olivia Pichette is talented and quick. â€œWeâ€™re really trying to play some basic, fundamental soccer,â€? said head coach Angie Karabaich. â€œ(Weâ€™re going to) use our outside
midfielders to get as many opportunities as we can.â€? Smalls will also be key to the defensive effort, while senior goalkeeper Danielle Rhea provides solid experience as the last line of defense.
The Abes hope that a solid turnout will continue to help the program grow, as first-year head coach Emily Abbott noted there will be a junior varsity team for the first time in several years. Seniors Kaitlyn Downs and Sabrina Stewart look to lead the squad, and they offer the versatility of playing multiple positions on the field. Junior goalkeeper Heidi Leeder should help solidify the defense, something Abbott noted will be the first focus of the team. â€œThe girls are really starting to play well together, and play as one,â€? Abbott said, adding that fitness to play a full 90 minutes
will be a key factor for the group. Sophomore Joelle French is another versatile player who will be expected to contribute as well.
The Thunderbirds will have a solid group of returning players as they begin their first season in the Narrows 3A, headlined by junior second team allleague goalkeeper Nina Thach. Senior midfielder Emily Hoefer and senior forward Chealang Hok will look to capitalize on scoring chances, while fellow senior Karissa Skidmore will be counted on to help lead the defense along with sophomore all-league honorable mention Georgianna Waldron. â€œWeâ€™re all really excited about this year,â€? said head coach Deirdre Leonard. â€œWeâ€™ve got a lot of good players. They just work really well together.â€?
Freshmen Lezah Rodriguez and Akaiyasia Sumandig are two talented young players who are capable of playing multiple positions, and will be expected to contribute.
The Falcons will look to rely on an experienced defense to stay competitive, led by junior Tyfanni Chin, a two-time all-league second team pick. Fellow junior Jessica Orosco also returns to help shore up the defense, but head coach Mark Kramer noted the squad is small in numbers and overall experience, which should present a challenge. Sophomore Emma Rue-Johns returns to lead the midfield, but Kramer expects â€œsignificant contributionsâ€? from younger players in the midfield and up front.
young squad, but feature athleticism as they look to improve against tough competition. â€œItâ€™s a building program, and itâ€™s going in the right direction,â€? said head coach Keith Beasinger. â€œThey actually play more like a team than weâ€™ve ever seen.â€? Junior midfielder Darby Huber returns and brings scoring ability and ball control, and sophomore Maddie Hood adds another experienced midfielder. Sophomore forward Katie Anderson also returns and brings a strong foot, ensuring that the Eagles should have a solid offense. Having struggled in the past against top teams Seattle Christian, Cedar Park Christian and Bellevue Christian, the Eagles will look to surprise in the Nisqually 1A league with a maturing group that will only lose three starters in the next two years.

Elliott said. The long and athletic Rams were looking for separation, but could not find much from the tough and gritty Tornadoes for much of the match in the 25-18, 25-20, 22-25, 25-22 win. Thatâ€™s when Channel took over, controlling much of the match from her setter and outside hitter positions with her athleticism. â€œI was excited for this match against Yelm,â€? said the junior, who led the Rams with 14 kills and 26 digs on the afternoon. Wilson would coast for much of the first game, but would have trouble the rest of the day. One of the keys to the success for Channelâ€™s day was the play of Lady Ramsâ€™ setter junior Rachel Russell. â€œRachel was great, she was fantastic with her sets all day long,â€? said Channel. Having won the first two sets and leading the third 6-2, the pesky Tornadoes would go on a run to survive and play another set before Wilson would finally put them away. â€œOnce we find that much needed leadership, weâ€™ll begin to become more consistent on the court,â€? Elliott said. â€œIâ€™m gradually beginning to become more familiar with my teammates,â€? said Channel, who also credited the play

STADIUM FALLS TO 7<@(33<7
Replacing four starters is a tough enough task for any volleyball squad. Having to begin the season against Puyallup â€“ a
4A state title contender this year â€“ proved to be too difficult for the Stadium Tigers, as despite a valiant effort, the Tigers fell 25-14, 25-19, 25-11 at home on Sept. 4. â€œThat middle set we competed with them, I thought we did a really good job,â€? said Stadium head coach John Dillard.
â€œThey just have way too many horses for us.â€? The Tigers stayed with Puyallup early in the first set behind the all-out hustle of senior libero Helena Stout, and a couple of impressive kills from junior outside hitter Angela Yun. Yun totaled five kills in the first set alone, and
finished tied for a teamhigh with nine kills and added three digs. â€œShe just came out without much fear and fired it,â€? said Dillard of
Yun. Stadium then battled toe to toe with the Vikings in the second set, forcing Puyallup into several mistakes and riding the play of outside hitter Tabi Webb, who took over. The senior had three early kills as the Tigers clung to an 11-11 tie midway through the set. â€œPuyallup, they have such a good front line that they knew we were going to set her and they were already set up,â€? Dillard said. â€œEven in that situation she adjusted, made some lined shots and put the ball where they werenâ€™t and got us some kills anyway.â€? The Vikings closed the set on a 14-8 run, and got off to a 17-7 lead on the way to breezing through the third set. But for Dillard and his Tigers, it was a valuable experience. â€œWhat we got to do today was play at a higher level, higher speed,â€? Dillard said. â€œThe game was much faster today than weâ€™ve been able to practice. â€œWeâ€™ll have a couple matches where weâ€™ll be able to play a little slower and get a little better rhythm, and then weâ€™ll see how we test out against some of the better teams.â€? Webb finished with nine kills and five digs, while Stout led the Tigersâ€™ defensive effort by tallying 11 digs. By Jeremy Helling

Lewis would find Devon Phillips for the two pointer and a 16-0 Rams lead. Phillips, who finished with 103 yards and a touchdown on 17 carries, gave a lot of credit to his teammates on both sides of the ball. “Our bigs were faster off the line of scrimmage the whole game long,” Phillips said. “We pretty much had our way with them all night long.” Leading 23-0 early in the second quarter, the Gators’ Kevin Young brought back the ensuing kickoff 82 yards to trim the lead to 23-7. But just when you think that you’d seen it all, Isaiah Simpson answered for Wilson with a 76-yard return to the house for a 30-7 lead. With Wilson negating the Decatur size all game long, linebacker Jake Ferris was excited about his team mates performance on the night. “I personally stared off a little rusty, but we were sharp as a team on both sides of the ball,” he said. “I hope we can carry this kind of performance all season long and get to the playoffs.” With Wilson’s quickness being a factor and the depth they carry on both sides of the ball, Clegg has a pleasant problem to deal with. “If we can stay healthy all season, this team has a real chance to become really special,” Clegg said. A prime example of that aforementioned quickness is Phillips, who echoes his coaches’ sentiments. “We have the ability to get a lot of things done offensively and if our defense performs like it did tonight, we’ll be in pretty good shape,” he said. “I just love defense,” added Ferris. “We’re really looking forward to the rest of the season.” By Steve Mullen

VOICES UNITED FOR MARRIAGE Seattle Men’s Chorus, Seattle Women’s Chorus give free concert in Tacoma to urge approval of Referendum 74 By Matt Nagle firstname.lastname@example.org
aking their show on the road for a five-city tour of Western Washington this month, the Seattle Men’s Chorus and Seattle Women’s Chorus will perform at Pantages Theatre on Sept. 14 for what promises to be an outstanding evening of song, community and support for marriage equality – and admission is free. The music starts at 8 p.m. Through their free concert series “Voices United for Marriage,” the choruses are getting out among the voting public to urge approval of Referendum 74, which will be on the ballot this coming November. Voting yes will help ensure that marriage equality for same-sex couples remains Washington state law as signed by Gov. Christine Gregoire last February. To help rally area voters to be sure and cast their ballots on this critical issue, the choruses are partnering with Washington United for Marriage for events in Tacoma, Olympia, Bellingham, Seattle and Edmonds to bring attention to the Yes on R-74 campaign. “This is about getting people to vote,” said chorus Executive Director Frank Stilwagner. “Since we’re a mail-in (ballot) state, we feel it’s really important to tell people to fill out their ballots and mail them in. “In talking with the folks at Washington United for Marriage, we felt it was the best use of our time and money to go to areas where voters will most likely support the bill. At this point the goal is to concentrate on the I-5 corridor where we know support is there.” The program will include a 90-minute set of music, stories and speakers devoted to building awareness and engaging audiences to take action and vote. Chorus members will share their personal stories describing what marriage means to them, and the choruses will also serve as facilitators for audience member reflections on the importance of marriage in their own lives. Representatives Jamie Pedersen and Laurie Jinkins and Senator Ed Murray are expected to also attend and encourage audience members to get involved in the campaign to approve R-74. “We want to encourage people to get out and tell their stories and engage family, friends and co-workers. If we can get people out in support (of R-74), the chances of it passing are very good,” said Stilwagner. “These concerts align squarely with the mission of the choruses: to use the power of words and music to recognize the value of gay and straight people and their relationships,” said Pedersen, also a longtime singing member of the Seattle Men’s Chorus. “By sharing the importance of Referendum 74 to our lives, we will help Washington become a place that fully accepts and values its gay and lesbian citizens.” Some of the songs the choruses will perform will include “Somewhere Over the Rainbow,” “Dancing Queen,” “Seal Lullaby,” “Come Live With Me and Be My Love” and “Livin’ la Vida Loca.” To learn more about R-74, visit www.WashingtonUnitedForMarriage.org.

KNOW YOUR PUBLIC ART
Fused glass murals at Pierce County Courthouse parking garage By Dave R. Davison email@example.com
The Tacoma Arts Commission is the main agency via which public art flows into our municipal space. The commission mentors, midwifes and maintains the stock of city-owned art treasures. Our beloved arts commission, however, is not the only game in town. Works of public art also come to us through other entities, agencies and combinations of agencies such as the parks department, neighborhood groups, churches, property owners as well as commissions at the state and county level. The Pierce County Arts Commission, for example, oversees the countyâ€™s One Percent for Art Program that directs publicly funded construction projects with costs exceeding $100,000 to allocate one percent of the project for public art. Thus, when the parking garage devoted to those citizens called to serve on jury duty was constructed as part of the county court building complex, the Pierce County Arts Commission saw to it that artwork was incorporated into the building which now stands at the corner of South 9th and Yakima Streets. For this project, the county commissioned a set of colorful murals done in fused glass tiles that feature various wetland species. The work, entitled â€œAs Above, So Below,â€? is the result of a collaboration between two area artists that specialize in fused glass: Richard La Londe and Michael Dupille. The murals, which are mounted on aluminum backings, were set in place upon the brick walls at the southeast corner of the building in May of 2000. â€œAs Above, So Belowâ€? is a suite of three main murals. The â€œHeron Muralâ€? is 12 feet tall and features a noble heron with a squiggly green tadpole in its beak. The artists allow us a view below the water as well as above. A fish peeks out from the lower left corner and a frog occupies the lower right. Up above there is a cluster of stylized rain clouds emitting cartoonish drops of rain. A big dragonfly hovers in the middle zone. The clouds above and the heronâ€™s pointed rump stick out beyond the frame, breaking the rectangular composition. Compositions that spill out of the bounds of the frame are a hallmark of Dupilleâ€™s work in particular. The 3-foot by 6-foot â€œFrog Muralâ€? gives us an underwater view of the wetland environment. We see the head of a duck jutting down from above as it goes for a sub-aquatic worm on a dark log. A fish, meanwhile, moves upward to catch a bug on the surface of the water. A group of

FIN AND FEATHER. A suite of wetland-themed, fused glass murals by Michael Dupille and Richard La Londe enlivens the brick facade of the Pierce County Courthouse parking garage at South 9th and Yakima Streets.
green tadpoles is swimming along and a big, green frog with an enigmatic starburst for an eye occupies a lower corner. The most eye-catching mural is the â€œDuck Mural.â€? At more than 5-feet high and almost 14-feet long, it depicts iconic mallard ducks in flight above a wetland scene. A big kingfisher stands in profile off to one side. The ducks in flight break free of the bonds of the mural. One of the ducks has flown completely out of the mural and is on its own on the side of the building. A fourth mini-mural echoing the â€œDuck Muralâ€? is high up on one of the buildingâ€™s brick surfaces. It is a square with more of the stylized clouds with one duck mostly out of the frame and another totally free. The two artists, La Londe and Dupille, are both accomplished practitioners of the art of fused glass. In the fused glass process, designs are laid out almost like a sand painting using variously colored glass that is crushed into a granular form called â€œfrit.â€? The designs are then heated in a kiln. The resulting fused glass composition has
a number of advantages as public art. It will never fade and it is easy to clean. â€œAs Above, So Belowâ€? should be able to last for centuries to come. Mounted on aluminum backings, the glass art can be removed and relocated if necessary. These works of art might well outlive the building upon which they reside. These murals are not beyond reproach however. The whole wetland theme, for example, is somewhat puzzling since the only â€œwetlandâ€? within miles of the building is the artificial pond in Wright Park. The colors are so brilliant and crisp that they are almost jarring in their contrast to the brick building and drab colors of the city. Neither is there any harmony in the color scheme. The murals are reminiscent of gaudy birthday cakes seen in glass counters of supermarkets. The rendering of some of the creatures can also be off-putting. The tadpoles and the sub-aquatic log, for example, are mere blobs of color. The dragonfly in the â€œHeron Muralâ€? and the titular frog in the â€œFrog Muralâ€? are somewhat awkward.
The stylized rainclouds seem out of character with other more naturalistic elements of the murals. That being said, it is good to have something to entertain the eye in this otherwise imposing quadrant of town. The two artists each have impressive records and do fascinating work. Seattlebased Dupille has been involved in glass work since he was part of the glass blowing program at Central Washington University in the early 1970s. He is one of the innovators in the fused glass field and teaches workshops all over the country. La Londe, who lives on Whidbey Island, began fusing glass in 1981. He has taught at the Pilchuck Glass School. Locally his work can be seen at Pierce County Library in Parkland, at Edgemont Junior High School in Edgewood, at Puyallupâ€™s Good Samaritan Hospital and at SeaTac International Airport.

Exhibit shows a glass master still going strong By John Larson firstname.lastname@example.org
At age 11, Lino Tagliapietra began perfecting his glassblowing skills through observation, repetition and production. The Italian artist was trained by masters in Murano, a major center for glass blowing in his native land. He became internationally recognized as a glass art master. Now 77, the master is still going strong, as evident from viewing â€œMaestro: Recent Works by Lino Tagliapietraâ€? at Museum of Glass. Organized by Tagliapietra Studios, the exhibit showcases 65 works made within the past 10 years. The exhibit is spread among five rooms. In the first room is â€œMasai,â€? a group of glass pieces in the shapes of spears. The title refers to a tribal group in Kenya and Tanzania. Nine are blue, two are light green and one is red. â€œMasai dâ€™Oroâ€? is a group of 16 pieces, all in gold-colored glass. The markings on all the spears are meant to express
embedded cultural information. â€œGabbiana (Ala)â€? is 10 items suspended from the ceiling. In various solid colors, these pieces are meant to represent bird wings and examine the metaphor of glass as both heavy yet light. In the second room is â€œMedusa,â€? a clear, round piece. It has three circular designs made of black lines. â€œChiocciolaâ€? is similar. It is a clear ball with many more small, circular designs. Demanding attention in the third room is â€œFenice,â€? which resembles a snake pointing its tail in the air. It has elongated blue and orange patterns. â€œBorboletaâ€? takes up much of the space in the fourth room. It consists of 12 objects arranged on the floor. While made just last year, the colors and bright patterns suggest an inspiration from late 1960s fashion. The pieces represent butterflies. â€œAvventuraâ€? is a display case mounted on a wall with many shelves. They con-

tain small objects that look like vases made of bronze. â€œEndeavorâ€? consists of about 15 items suspended from the ceiling in the fifth room. They represent small boats and are in a variety of colors. The title refers to a famous British racing yacht in the 1930s. â€œSaturnoâ€? is a circular object mounted on a pole. It contains rings, meant to evoke the planet Saturn. Among the more fascinating pieces in the exhibit is â€œNiomea.â€? It resembles a vase in a teardrop design. The hues of black, brown and blue seem more like a transparent fabric than glass. Two pieces titled â€œPiccadillyâ€? are here, one made in 2008, the other in 2011. Both resemble a top that a child would spin. This exhibit shows the evolution of Tagliapietraâ€™s art to larger works and bolder colors over the years. â€œMaestroâ€? makes a compelling case to declare him the greatest glass artist in the world.
Tagliapietra will display his skills in the Hot Shop at Museum of Glass from Oct. 10-14. â€œMaestroâ€? runs through Jan. 6.

RICH WETZEL’S GROOVIN’ HIGHER ORCHESTRA BRINGS ITS LIVELY BIG-BAND JAZZ SHOW TO STONEGATE ON SEPT. 9. THE ALL-AGES SHOW RUNS FROM 5-8 P.M.

ELECTRIC. The Divine Fits released their debut album Aug. 28, and kick off their first full-scale U.S. tour on Oct. 16. By Kate Burrows email@example.com
Seattle’s epic indie music venue The Crocodile was alive Aug. 30 with the energy from a packed house of fans waiting to see supergroup the Divine Fits rock out. The band consists of Britt Daniel (Spoon), Dan Boeckner (Handsome Furs, Wolf Parade) and Sam Brown (New Bomb Turks). The band has only performed a handful of shows as the Divine Fits, but the star power alone from these rockers means it is only a matter of time (and not much, most likely) before they become household names. It will not take much for a band featuring the frontmen of longstanding band Spoon (Daniel), and edgy rockers Handsome Furs (Boeckner) to take over the airwaves. When the players took the stage in Seattle for only the 10th time as a band, their charisma and talent were more than evident. The band released their debut album “A Thing Called Divine Fits” only two days prior on Aug. 28. Before their official debut, the Divine Fits played their first few shows in Austin, which
were well received by critics and fans alike. With two proven frontmen sharing the mic on the album, each track has a unique sound but the energy is consistent throughout. Daniel is best known as the lead singer of Spoon, a band he co-founded in Austin back in 1993. Since then, he has built a career collaborating with a variety of artists ranging from Bright Eyes and White Rabbits to Interpol. He brings his post-punk, innovative pop sound to the stage and, combined with the edgy vocals and captivating stage presence of Boeckner, the band’s live shows keep the audience on their toes. Boeckner’s Handsome Furs – a duo featuring him and wife Alexei Perry – announced their breakup in May, but his energetic vocals bring a darker, quasi-punk vibe to the Divine Fits. Drummer Sam Brown’s experience in New Bomb Turks rounds out the group as he provides a solid backbone for a stellar album. The 11-track album leads off with “My Love

is Real,” the band’s first single. With Boeckner on vocals and Daniel on synths and percussion, the song features a hook that will stick with you along with the vivid, quotable lyrics. “If I was the king she’s the knife in the water/ there’s so much to lose/ when my love is real/
until it stops.” “Flaggin’ a Ride” features Daniel’s signature sound made famous by Spoon, employing repetitive beats and smooth-butedgy vocals. “Can’t you see me wavin’ I’m flaggin’ a ride/ ‘cause I’m tryin’ to get to Providence I lost my way/ If I don’t make it there there’ll be hell to pay.” With vocals and songwriting split about 50/50 between Daniel and Boeckner, each track offers something different for the listener, and the stage presence of these tried and true rockers make for an incredible live show.

Oktoberfest Northwest set to raise a stein at eighth annual event By Steve Dunkelberger email@example.com
Oktoberfest is more than just drinking beer, eating pretzels and pondering creative ways to invade Poland. All things German will be on display at the eighth annual Oktoberfest Northwest, presented by Emerald Queen Casino, set to take over the Puyallup Fair and Events Center Oct. 5-7. Oktoberfest Northwest is known throughout the region for providing authentic German entertainment, and the 2012 event will feature another outstanding line-up of performers crooning everything from Edelweiss to polka versions of popular rock songs. Alongside the beer garden, musical acts, dancing in feathered hats and leather shorts will be the Hammerschlagen Tournament of Champions, where participants compete to hammer a nail into a board as fast as possible; and the crowd-pleasing Weiner Dog Races that pits these short-legged tubes of fury against the clock. A Stein Dash 5K run will have participants run with a souvenir stein that will just happen to get filled in the beer garden at the end of the race if runners or walkers are so inclined. Headlining the event this year is Man-
uela Hornâ€™s Ultimate Oktoberfest Party. Horn has been entertaining audiences around the world for 10 years. She is best known for her performances in Seattleâ€™s Teatro Zinzanni variety show, the rockopera movie â€œRentâ€? and the TV show â€œAmericaâ€™s Got Talent.â€? Known in yodeling circles as â€œthe Austrian Amazon,â€? the 6-foot, 2-inch woman is a dancing, acting, and joke telling force of nature best known for her yodeling dominatrix and host of about a dozen other characters she has crafted. Also returning this year are the Allgauer AlpinCats, direct from Germany and featuring a fun, lively, traditional Oktoberfest performance. Oktoberfest Northwest is a collaborative effort between Festivals Inc. (producers of the Bite of Seattle) and the Western Washington Fair Association. Discount admission coupons are available at participating south King County and Pierce County Safeway stores. Oktoberfest Northwest is an all-ages event until 7 p.m. each evening (and all day Sunday!). After 7 p.m., guests must be 21 years of age or older. Admission is free before 3 p.m. on Friday and $10 for Friday night or all day Saturday. Tickets are half price on Sunday. Children 12 and under are free.

SUPERIOR COURT OF WASHINGTON FOR PIERCE COUNTY In re the Adoption of: Ashley Paul Franiszek Kulik, A minor child No. 12-5-00826-1 SUMMONS AND NOTICE OF HEARING RE: TERMINATION OF PARENT-CHILD RELATIONSHIPS TO: ADRIAN FLOYD AND TO: Any and all persons claiming a parental interest in the above-named child A Petition for Step Parent Adoption, which includes a request for termination of the parent-child relationship between you and the child has been filed in the above-entitled court. The Petitioner is asking the court for an order permanently terminating the parent-child relationship between you and the child, permanently terminating all of your rights to the child, and for a Decree of Adoption declaring the Petitioner to be a legal parent of the child. The child was born on September 3, 1996, in Guildford, County of Surrey, England. The name of the childâ€™s mother is Juliana Marie Paice (neĂŠ Kulik). In order to defend against this Petition, you must respond to the Petition by stating your defense in writing and by serving a copy upon Joyce S. Schwensen (the attorney for the Petitioner) at the address below within thirty days after date this Summons is served upon you, or an order permanently terminating your parent-child relationship with the child by default will be entered. A default order is one where the Petitioner is entitled to what he asks for because you have not responded. If you serve a notice of appearance on Joyce S. Schwensen (the attorney for the Petitioner) at the address below, you are entitled to notice before a default order may be entered. One method of serving a copy of your response on the Petitioner is to send it by certified mail with return receipt requested. If service
is made by mail, the service shall be deemed complete upon the third day following the day upon which the response is placed in the mail, unless the third day falls on a Saturday, Sunday or legal holiday, in which event service shall be deemed complete on the first day other than a Saturday, Sunday or legal holiday, following the third day. You have a right to be represented by an attorney. If you are indigent and request an attorney, an attorney will be appointed for you. You have a right to file a claim of paternity under chapter 26.26 of the Revised Code of Washington. Your failure to file a claim of paternity under chapter 26.26 of the Revised Code of Washington or to respond to the Petition for Step Parent Adoption which has been filed herein within thirty days of the date this Summons is served upon you is grounds to terminate your parent-child relationship with respect to the child. If the child is an Indian child as defined by the Indian Child Welfare Act of 1978, 25 U.S.C. 1901 et sec., and if you acknowledge paternity of the child or if your paternity is established prior to the termination of the parent-child relationship, your parental rights may not be terminated unless you give valid consent to termination, or your parent-child relationship is terminated involuntarily pursuant to chapter 26.33 of 13.34 RCW.
