When Biot meets Tacoma something beautiful happens LOOK FOR BLOG UPDATES, PHOTOS AT GLASSSISTERS.TUMBLR.COM By Kathleen Merryman I have never met so many people eager to come see all the delights that Tacoma has to offer as I did at the start of the

month. They live in Biot, the south of France, a few miles from Nice, with a view of the Mediterranean on the Riviera. And they want to come here. Biot and Tacoma are embarking on a sister city relationship,

and our new French sister city residents are eager to see our glass art scene, our museums, and sample our history and food. Their delegates, who visited last October, went home with See BIOT / page A5

Gray skies do nothing to dampen Grand Floral Parade Festivities continue with Junior Daffodil Parade and Daffodil Marine Parade By John Larson


light drizzle did not dampen any spirits during the 80th annual Daffodil Festival Grand Floral Parade as it rolled down Pacific Avenue in downtown Tacoma on April 13. Popular floats were the entries from Puyallup Tribe of Indians and the Daffodil Festival, which carried Daffodil Queen Kenna Erhardt and her court. Other floats came from around Washington, Portland and British Columbia. Marching bands from high schools around Pierce County performed. The Seafair Pirates were on hand with their pirate ship-themed float, while some pirates walked along the sidewalks interacting with parade viewers. More than 150 entries, including car clubs, mounted See PARADE / page A10 TOP PHOTO BY JOHN LARSON / LEFT PHOTOS BY JOE MICELI/DIGIMAGERY1@YAHOO.COM

Investors would have done well if they’d copyrighted the phase “Good question. I’ll get back to you” and its derivatives prior to the Tacoma City Council’s latest – and last – study session before the officials endorse a route for the Link light rail expansion. The April 16 chat with Sound Transit officials was chock-full of the otherwise money-making phrase. Councilmember Marty Campbell questioned the ridership projection of 3.5 million users a year given that the projections seem larger than the full capacity of the system of just 2 million. The answer lay in the definition of “a rider.” He also worked Sound Transit spread sheets on cost projections and wondered how a straight light rail line along Portland Avenue from East 25th to 44th streets would cost $20 million more than running a rail line from the Theater District Station up a hill and onto Stadium Way to 6th Avenue. Answer unknown, outside of that is the projected cost. Councilmember David Boe had a flurry of questions, including how the routes were judged on their economic potential, since one route would front some of the largest swaths of open commercial space in the city that are zoned high density and industrial yet ranked lower than one route that is more built out. The answer was in the difference between commercial development and residential development, but that was “fuzzy.” “I don’t see how these are put together because they seem contrary to our zoning code,” Boe said, also noting that the 6th Avenue route ranks high on economic development potentials when it has a lack of open and under-developed land when compared to other routes. Another Boe question involved the potential success of a local improvement district (LID) along whatever route is chosen. The higher the assessed property values along the route translated to a higher rate of success to tax those property owners to raise the $50 million needed in a “local partnership” to make the route funding package pencil for federal grants. One trouble with that is that the routes have nonprofit and governmental offices along them that are tax exempt, notably MultiCare Health System on the Martin Luther King Jr. routes and Puyallup Tribal See LINK / page A5

Enter contest to win tickets to see Sesame Street Live at Tacoma Dome By Steve Dunkelberger


very parent believes, or at least should believe, their children are the most brilliant and adorable creatures on the planet. In that vein, Tacoma Weekly is holding another contest to win more Tacoma swag. The contest is simple: Send us a photo (yes, just one) of your child (or children) with no more than 100 words about why he or she (or they) are awesome. The deadline is April 22.

The images will be posted on April 23. The most “likes” on Facebook or votes on our contest gallery at TacomaWeekly. com by the end of the contest, May 3, will win a four-pack of ticket vouchers to see Sesame Street Live at Tacoma Dome, May 10-12. The runner-up will receive two ticket vouchers. “Sesame Street Live: Can’t Stop Singing” tells the story of Elmo as he gets his furry fingers on Abby Cadabby’s magic wand and finds there is something in the air. Sesame Street becomes a nonstop, all-


The power of Community

Local Life, Go Local and Tacoma Farmers Market will host a movie night and conversation around the theme of grass roots community efforts at the Grand Cinema on April 29, 6:30pm. The movie, “The Power of Community,” has strong themes of local food, sustainability and walkable neighborhoods – all through the lens of neighborled efforts. The night will also kick off Go Local and Local Life’s 2013 City of Neighborhoods Campaign. “The Power of Community” is a documentary filmed in Cuba and focuses on what’s known as “The Special Period” in Cuban history. When the Soviet Union collapsed in 1990, Cuba’s economy went into a tailspin. Oil imports were cut by more than half and food by 80 percent. This film shows how Cuban communities pulled together, created solutions and ultimately thrived in spite of their decreased dependence on imported energy. The interviewees share how they transitioned from highly mechanized agriculture to using organic farming and urban gardens. They also share how their communities reoriented their lives around walkable neighborhoods and alternatives to

oil-dependent transportation. After the movie, representatives from the three organizations will host a conversation about the hidden assets found in relational and neighborlevel collaboration. For Go Local and Local Life, this will be the kickoff of their City of Neighborhoods Campaign. The campaign will be a series of monthly events that center around the City of Neighborhoods Conference on May 18 and last through the summer. The conference will be at the historic Downtown Post Office building and will feature keynote speaker Jim Diers, returning by popular demand. “Jim was inspiring and fun to listen to. He always has lots of interesting stories from his work with neighborhoods around the world,” said Mayfield. Many workshops and presentations from about 40 local and grassroots leaders are also expected as part of the day. The Power of Community showing at the Grand Cinema will cost $5. City of Neighborhoods is $20. Tickets for both can be found online at More information is available at CityofNeighborhoods2013. com.

Before the show, Play Zone at Sesame Street Live will be in full swing, where children can experience their favorite street by sitting in Big Bird’s nest, popping up in Oscar’s trash can, twirling in Zoe’s dance studio or visiting Elmo’s World. Play Zone opens one hour before the show and is free with your Sesame Street Live ticket. Visit www.tacomadome. org for more information.


In a new letter, U.S. Sen. Maria Cantwell and a bipartisan group of six other Senate and House aviation leaders urged the Federal Aviation Administration to prevent the closure of 149 air traffic control towers across the country. The 149 contract towers – which are operated by contractors for the FAA – are scheduled to close on June 15. Five contract towers in Washington would be among the contract towers closed under the current plan: Renton Municipal Airport, Tacoma Narrows Airport, Yakima Air Terminal/McAllister Field, Felts Field in Spokane, and Olympia Regional Airport. The letter, sent April 11 to U.S. Department of Transportation Secretary Ray LaHood and FAA Administrator Michael Huerta, was led by Senate Committee on Commerce, Science and Transportation Chairman John D. Rockefeller IV (D-WV) and Ranking Member John Thune (R-SD). The letter was also signed by Cantwell and Sen. Kelly Ayotte (R-NH), the Chairwoman and Ranking Member of the Senate Subcommittee on Aviation Operations, Safety and Security. It was also signed by House commerce and aviation leaders: Representatives Bill Shuster (R-PA), Nick Rahall (D-WV) and Frank LoBiondo (R-NJ). “We are profoundly disappointed with the decision of the FAA to target 149 FAA contract control towers for closure on June 15,” the Senators and Representatives wrote. “We ask that you identify lower priority spending elsewhere in the FAA’s budget for reduction.”

A 17-year-old boy has been charged with vehicular homicide related to an automobile wreck that occurred in Point Defiance Park on April 12. A 15-yearold boy, Alex Ramirez, died at the scene. According to court documents, witnesses told police that four teenagers were drinking. They got in a car, which did not halt for a stop sign on Five Mile Drive and hit a tree. Firefighters responded to a crash. The suspect told police he was the driver and had drank beer before the crash. Empty beer cans were found at the scene, along with an empty wine bottle. The charge was filed in juvenile court. A hearing will take place on April 25 to determine if he will be charged as an adult.


MAY 10 - MAY 12 The FAA had initially planned to begin the closure of the contract towers on April 7, but on April 5 the FAA announced the closures would be delayed until June 15. Cantwell had raised concerns with Huerta about the impact of the potential closures in Washington state and around the country. “It is deeply troubling that the agency seems intent on proceeding with the closure of key air traffic control assets absent adequate safety and study. We recognize that the FAA faces difficult choices, but in this instance we remain opposed to the FAA’s actions and will continue to urge action to keep contract towers open and operational,” the letter continued. A Commerce Committee hearing on aviation safety was held on April 16 at which FAA Administrator Huerta testified. The hearing examined the consequences of sequestration on the FAA and the agency’s efforts to implement safety provisions in recent FAA reauthorizations.


Drivers who were preparing for the April 26 weekend closure of the westbound State Route 16 Tacoma Narrows Bridge can take a breather. A project to replace a problematic expansion joint has been delayed a few weeks. The Washington State Department of Transportation and its contractor, Mowat Construction, learned April 12 that the new expansion joint, which is being fabricated specifically for this bridge, will not be ready in time. The work and associated traffic restrictions will more likely occur in mid-May. A new closure date will be announced once WSDOT can verify a new schedule with certainty.




Pierce County Prosecutor Mark Lindquist has charged Erik Lee Bryan with robbery, attempting to elude police, vehicular assault and hit and run in connection with an incident that occurred on April 5. A woman was preparing to lock up her business when she was approached by a man. He asked if he could collect cans from her recycling bin, which she agree to. He then entered the office, pulled a guy and demanded cash. He took the victim’s cell phone, keys to her van, about $25 and the business’ bank deposit. He fled in the van and the victim called police. Officers spotted the van at a nearby intersection. While it was stopped at a red light, they ordered the driver to exit. He sped away with police in pursuit. The van hit a car driven by a woman with six of her children. The car flipped upside down. The van driver fled on foot. A K-9 unit located him. He told officers he fled because the Department of Corrections had issued a warrant for his arrest. He denied driving the van. Witnesses to the crash and the robbery victim identified the defendant. The women and children were taken to a hospital, where the mother was treated for a minor injury and one child for a cut to her head. The defendant pleaded not guilty and his bail was set at $1 million.

1963 studebaker avanti #1001 By Steve Dunkelberger

Car maker Studebaker Avanti was in trouble in the late 1950s. Sales were tanking. It needed a big win. Car designer Raymond Loewy was handpicked in 1961 to deliver. And he did. Loewy hired the best and the brightest in the business, namely John Ebstein, Robert Andrews and Tom Kellogg for the task. Without time for focus groups or market studies they, quite literally, locked themselves in a house and set out to design their dream car that would make the Studebaker company hip again with young car buyers. They had a clay model of their design in just 10 days. It was presented to Studebaker, and production started within months. Their car was designed to be a personal luxury coupĂŠ and was marketed as “America’s only fourpassenger, high-performance personal car!â€? The two-door Avanti had a radical fiberglass body that was mounted on a modified Studebaker Lark Daytona 109-inch convertible chassis with a modified 289 Hawk engine that

Pothole pig’s




packed a 240-horsepower engine. The car was fitted with British Dunlop designed front disc brakes and a special option pack that included a Paxton supercharger that added 50 horsepower to the car. The Studebaker Avanti has been described as “one of the more significant milestones of the postwar industry.� But the car was too little too late to save Studebaker. The car was only produced for about two years under the Studebaker name. Avanti replicas, however, were produced by a series of

other companies until 2006. The Avanti in the LeMay collection is confirmed by Avanti documentation as being #1001 – the first Avanti sold. The car was donated to the museum from the collection of Dr. Daniel Cook of Lakewood. Museum researchers are trying to figure out when the car was painted the current “psychedelic� colors and are working to bring it back to its original look. LeMay-America’s Car Museum has the Avanti 1001 Rescue Project to make sure the work is done correctly.

Charlie’s Dinosaur drive deadline extended South 28th and ‘E’ Street By Kathleen Merryman

We had a plan for the Charlie’s Dinosaur drive. At first, we established a timeline to collect necessities for new foster kids through the Daffodil Festival (April 13). It seemed a natural break in life in Pierce County. We’ve changed our mind. This is a new drive for a new non-profit, a citywide idea we haven’t tried before. It took a while to explain it, to get people collecting those hoodies and jammies, those toiletries and backpacks. Now we’re rolling. We’re hearing from bars and bistros that have signs and collection sites. People who have had a pint or two of excellent beer are, it turns out, generous. Imagine how generous they might be if they had a friendly competition with another establishment. We’ve heard of a tweener girl who’s planning a pajama party, and inviting her friends to bring new PJs to donate. Rite in the Rain, the people who make paper you can – yep, write on in the rain –heard about the drive on Saturday, and had a sign up on Monday.

So we are ditching our plan. We’re adding a month. We have posters to share, and we can make more. We’ve found that, instead of a box, a piece of rolling luggage, duffle or backpack makes a great donation site. Stop by the Tacoma Weekly office at 2588 Pacific Hwy. on your way to Pick Quick Burgers for lunch and pick up a poster, or put a donation in our girlie suitcase. Stop by any police or sheriff’s substation and donate. Or save the trip, and shift into the drive. People in Tacoma are doing good things for the kids who need it most. Why stop now?


Dinosaur as a non-profit to help children moving out of abuse and into foster care. There’s an awkward time in that process, said Det. Sgt. Theresa Berg. The children rarely have clean clothes, toiletries or anything to pass the time in the few days when they are in meetings, hearings and temporary care. Charlie’s Dinosaur fills in that blank with a backpack or rolling suitcase filled with new necessities. The detectives are allowing us to help fill those bags during Tacoma Weekly’s Charlie’s Dinosaur Drive for Foster Kids. The list of things the children need, and the places to bring them are next to this story.

Child abuse and neglect cases are some of the hardest on Pierce County Sheriff ’s deputies. Though they are all awful, the deaths of Charlie and Braden Powell at their father’s hand was one of the worst. Who could make sense of a parent murdering his own boys? After they found a picture Charlie made of a happy dinosaur, five detectives saw it as the mascot of an effort to help the kids they still can. They founded Charlie’s

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 continued those efforts in 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 Potholes in need of repair can be reported to the City of Tacoma by calling (253) 591-5495.

Race for Casen Local mom organizes 5K walk/run for baby with rare disease

By Matt Nagle


hen bombs exploded in Boston this week, many heartening stories came out of the terror about people rushing to help the injured. Complete strangers took care of each other, showing that there are so many good people in the world today, from Massachusetts all the way to our own backyard. Rosie Tomyn is just such a person. A stay-at-home mom with a teething son to contend with, for the past months this Edgewood resident has been working to help another Mom’s baby with a rare disease and in desperate need of medical help. To raise funds for the baby’s surgeries and care, Tomyn is organizing a 5K walk/run on June 15 at Edgemont Junior High in Edgewood. One-year-old Casen Buswell of Puyallup was born with an extremely rare congenital vascular malformation called glomuvenous malformations plaque type, or GMV plaque type. He is one of only 14 people in the world suffering from this condition – and one of only two with such an extreme case. Casen’s condition is very rare, as it covers his thoracic area, belly, arms, upper shoulders/ back and right thumb. Without proper treatment, the disease will lead to hardening of his blood vessels, skin, muscle and arteries, which will become worse as he gets older. There are only two doctors in the world

“He’s just a little sweetie and so resilient. With all he’s got going on, he’s just amazing. I just felt compelled to help.” – Rosie Tomyn who have developed a treatment for Casen’s condition, and they live in Belgium. On top of this, the Buswells’ insurance does not cover his treatment because of its classification as “experimental.” Now, in addition to the mounting medical bills the family already is shouldered with, the Buswells are facing relocation to Belgium in the hopes that doctors can successfully treat their little one. Tomyn said that when she met little Casen and mom Jenna at a Scentsy party her friend was having, she knew instantly that she had to do something. “After you meet that little guy, you’re sold – you’re going to help,” Tomyn said. “He’s just a little sweetie and so resilient. With all he’s got going on, he’s just amazing. I just felt compelled to help.” She said the Buswell family is staying strong as well, even though medical expenses are piling up. “They are getting bill after bill,” Tomyn said, and Casen will be having more surgeries over the coming years. Other fundraisers for Casen have been

held, and the Buswell family got a huge lift when Arlington racing enthusiast Ron Cook raffled his 1957 Chevy Bel Air and raised $11,000 for Casen – another case of a complete stranger coming forward to help a baby he has never met. The winner of the car has pledged to sell it and donate the money to Casen as well. Now, Tomyn is lending her hand. The 5K walk/run fundraiser she is putting together does not happen until June 15, but Tomyn is doing all she can now to get the word out. “The big push now is for people to register,” she said, which really helps her in planning the event. Entry fee is $30 before June 14 and $35 day of race. All entries include a race day T-shirt and all proceeds will go to the Buswell family. Register at The race starts at 11 a.m. near Edgemont Junior High School in Edgewood, 2300 110th Ave. Sponsors are also needed, as are area businesses and organizations to set up booths in the park. “The hope is that if we

can get enough vendors at the park, it will be an additional pull for people to come out.” There will be a lot going on that day, including silent auctions, raffles, a DJ spinning festive music and a professional photographer offering photos of race participants and families. And, barring any health issues, Casen himself will be there with his mom, who will say a few words to the crowds. The race will be timed and on a certified course, which has not been run in four years, Tomyn said. “This will be a great opportunity for runners looking for a new course to get out there on that course.” Whether you run the race at full tilt or take the course at a your own nice, slow amble, or if you want to be a spectator, Tomyn said this event is for you. “Everybody is welcome. We just want as much a show of support for Casen as we can get out there that day.” Tomyn said she welcomes the help of anyone who wants to volunteer on the day of the walk/run or before. “If someone wants to help, I’ll figure out a way they can help,” she said.

Local Restaurants Little Jerry’s Breakfast & Burgers This shrine to ʻ‘Seinfeldʼ’ serves up mighty delicious dishes

By Sean Contris Special to Tacoma Weekly

It seems that I was destined to be a “Seinfeld” fan from the moment I was born. One of the clearest memories I have of my father from an early age is simply of him in front of a TV, engrossed in this show about nothing. The show’s opening, and legendary, bass line became a part of my daily soundtrack, and the words “soup Nazi,” “jerk store” and “Festivus” carved an early place into my still developing vocabulary. So as I walked into Little Jerry’s, a local restaurant dedicated to and in celebration of Jerry Seinfeld’s piece of sitcom history, it was like a homecoming of sorts. Lined wallto-wall in the restaurant’s rather tight space was every piece of “Seinfeld” memorabilia imaginable. Photos of the cast are signed and hung; even the iconic Kramer portrait hangs above the restaurant’s customers, embracing the appearance of the loathsome offensive brute that he is. Just above the refrigerator, stacked atop one another, sit props and allusions to some of the show’s greatest jokes and lines, some that only truly dedicated fans will be able to understand (“War and Peace,” anyone?). Keeping with the “Seinfeld” theme, the names of every single item on the menu are derived from the show. Examples include the brilliant Assman (a burger with chili poured over its patty), The Big Stein (a Philly cheesesteak) and The Mimbo (a burger stuck between two peanut butter and jelly sandwiches). Regardless if you are a fan of “Seinfield” or not, the wide range of exotic burgers available on the menu are the main draw of Little Jerry’s. Then there is the French toast, hotcakes, breakfast skillets, eggs Benedict, salads, sandwiches, soups,

burgers, fries and much more, including a wide variety of side items. It is clear that the “Seinfeld” aspect of Little Jerry’s is only the draw, while the punch is the simply extraordinary food at moderate prices that this restaurant offers. As of last month, on March 18, Little Jerry’s celebrated its first year in business. Founded by co-owners and husband and wife duo Anthony and Tara Valadez, along with their sole fulltime cook Tyrone Raspberry, and their hostess and server Francesca Mendozza, Little Jerry’s has been open to the public for breakfast, lunch and early dinners. In addition to the wide variety of food available, Little Jerry’s takes its fan-dom one step further in embracing some of the “Seinfeld” show’s wilder gags into full-blown events. Just this last December, the staff and several devoted customers celebrated their first ever Festivus, even going as far as having “The Airing of Grievances” just outside in the parking lot. “As the restaurant goes on, I hope to have more events,” said

Little Jerry’s owner Anthony Valadez gives due justice to two favorite American pastimes: eating and television. Anthony Valadez. “I was thinking of a Keith Hernandez mustache day, you know, where anyone who comes in with that mustache gets a discount, or maybe an Elaine Dance Off day.” Valadez also briefly mentioned the ideas that the restaurant has for its near future: “We’re looking to getting a food truck,” he said with a smile on his face. “I’m not too sure on what we’ll call it; probably The Jerk Store.” Little Jerry’s is located in Fern Hill District, at 8233 S.

photos of a city sparkling with glass and public art, lovely homes, historic buildings and excellent hamburgers. They have told their friends how welcoming we were, how much fun we showed them, how comfortable they were in our town. I know. I know. They’re way ahead of the people in Federal Way. From April 3 through 7, it was their turn to show off their town to Tacoma’s leaders in arts and civic life. Deputy Mayor Lauren Walker led the delegation, on her own time and her own dime. Former Mayor Bill Baarsma and his wife, Carol, Catherine Sarnat, Agnes Jensen and Chris and Gwen Porter represented Tacoma’s interests in history, culture and language. Ben Cobb and Sarah Gilbert of the Museum of Glass brought their glass-blowing skills. Because Biot Mayor Jean-Pierre Dermit asked them to bring a journalist, the delegates invited me to join them. Before we left, we set up a blog, glasssisters.tumblr. com, to keep up with the adventure. If we had known what Biot has to offer, we would never have attempted that goal. We knew it was a walled Medieval town that has made an industry of pottery since Roman times. We knew it had made the switch to glass, and that we would meet some of the artists. We knew we would be there for Biot et les Templiers, its annual celebration of its history with the Knights Templar. We knew we have technology, mountains and salt water in common. After we landed in Nice, we learned one more sisterly connection: The brassy cities nearby – Cannes and Nice – have superiority complexes. Biot has the history, the art and the progress. The walled hill town may have lost its castle to the centuries, but it retains streets built by people who never imagined cars. It is a warren of walkways between stone homes and shops. Nothing but the bell tower rises more than five or so stories. Residents have fun with plants, arching them over walkways, potting color on tiny balconies. They built public art into the town from the ground, where they set the stones in patterns, up to statues. They are a town of walkers, and one of their favorite stops is Hotels Les Arcades, the hotel, restaurant and cafÊ where we stayed. About 500 years old, it once housed

land on another. Those facts were not apparently part of the evaluation since funding part of the study after the route is selected. Initial answers to those questions, however, are in the works for consideration by the time the council begins pondering its endorsement for a vote later this month. And there are a lot of issues already known to consider. Two hybrid routes that were added in the final weeks of the endorsement process have since been reviewed with mixed results but added to the debate. Tacoma City Manager T.C. Broadnax, with a nod from the council, had Sound Transit look at a route that would run about a mile from the Tacoma Dome Station to Portland Avenue and East 29th Street with one expansion and from the South 25th Street and Pacific Avenue Station to Martin Luther King Jr. Way, with three station options. One would be at

Antoine Pierini laid out a slab of molten glass, and Michelin-star chef Mickael Fulci cooked oysters, scallops, lamb and beef on it. livestock in the basement and a tobacconist’s shop at street level. Its owners, the Brothier family, are art collectors, and enlisted artists and artisans to help them expand into a hotel where every room is different, and every space frames paintings, mosaics or sculptures. That basement now houses a gallery of modern art. It was from here that we set out each morning on a schedule packed from 8 a.m. to past 10 p.m. And it was over breakfast the second day that we decided to put the blog on hold so we could savor the reality. After World War II, Biot had everything weary artists craved. Fernand Leger came for the light, and his wife built a museum for his works after he died. Down the hill in Antibes, Pablo Picasso came for the light – and a woman, and the pottery and the free stay and support in the building that now houses his museum. A decade later, the glassmakers came to Biot. They set up hotshops in town and around town and agreed on a specialty: bubble glass. They coated their cores of molten glass with baking soda, added another layer of glass, and blew it all into frisky glasses, plates and art. The craftsmen evolved into artists, then masters: Robert Pierini and his son, Antoine, Jean-Claude Novaro, Raphael Farinelli, Pascal Guyot,

South 19th Street, another at South 11th Street and another at 6th Avenue if money were available. It is not. The full route would cost $199 million. The shortest route would cost just $120 million but operational costs would be high – as much as $20 million a year – because of the steep grade going up Tacoma’s hillside and the need for more trains. “We would basically have to operate two systems,� Sound Transit Senior Project Manager Val Batey said. The current 1.6 mile Link costs just $4.3 million a year to run trains. The top options under review would run trains for about $10 million a year with twice as many trains as the current line. A stakeholders group of business and civil leaders, including the Puyallup Tribe, recommended its own hybrid that would run tracks from the Tacoma Dome to Portland Avenue and East 29th Street and would run tracks to Martin Luther King Jr. Way from the current Theater District Station

up Stadium Way to Division Avenue. It, too, had several station options based on available money. The least expensive would be to MLK and 6th at $130 million, followed by MLK and 11th at $160 million or all the way to 19th for $170 million. It would cost about $12 million a year to operate. The two hybrid options shared the drive to connect the current line to Hilltop as well as to link Portland Avenue to downtown. The former would provide transportation from the hospitals to downtown. The latter would help tie in the lowincome Salishan neighborhood to downtown as well as provide a tourism link to the Puyallup Tribe’s Emerald Queen Casino complex at a time when it announced plans for a $200 million complex along the route. The tribe has also offered to allow Link riders free parking at its 2,500-stall parking complex, which would help solve parking issues that have plagued Tacoma Dome concerts and larger events at Greater Tacoma Conven-

Didier, Daniel and Christophe Saba, Richard Ranise, Veroniqe Monod and Jean-Paul Van Lith. Now their work draws some 700,000 visitors a year to La Verrerie de Biot, owned by Serge Lechaczynski and his family. It’s a museum, a school, a hot shop and a gallery. It has had a Chihuly for years, and a Ben Cobb since April 4. Huguette Marsicano, a marketing expert with a fondness for Biot and Tacoma, saw glass as an opportunity for a natural pairing between the two cities. The French call it a “jumelage� or twinning. In it, each community maintains ties with the other; they promote one another’s work, attractions, festivals. That brought us to the Knights Templar who, from the early 1100s, were the law and order on the routes to the Holy Land. In the 1200s, they settled into an old castle and developed Biot and the lands around it. For five years, Biot has celebrated their history and legend with a three-day festival, Biot et les Templiers. Residents dress in their finest Medieval garb – and, trust me, they have some pretty fine garb, right down to the chain mail, helmets and robes. The faux-lepers who visit every year are the hit of the show. tion and Trade and Center. City dollars to build parking have largely evaporated during the city’s recent budget troubles. Staff at both city venues have complained that they cannot compete with other venues because of their lack of available parking, made more dire with part of the Dome’s parking lot now occupied by LeMay: America’s Car Museum. The council will consider a resolution in support of Tacoma’s preferred Sound Transit expansion route, and possibly an alternate, during its April 30 meeting. The Sound Transit Board will then vote on a route on May 23. More detailed review of the route, particularly how to fund a $50 million “local partnership,� would then follow. Those dollars could come from an LID assessment on property owners along the route or other revenue sources. Another aspect of the Portland route that has some folks supporting it is that it would qualify for federal dollars used to fund transportation projects to and from Native American res-

Even the town dresses up, with olive and laurel garlands overhead, straw bales in the streets and burlap over storefronts. They hold jousting tourneys, sword battles, a marketplace and torchlight parades through town in the evening. This year, their theme was food, and fine chefs prepared pork, salmon, lamb and beef to centuries-old recipes. Admission is free, hotels are booked, restaurants are full, and sales of everything from biscuits to bows and arrows, sunglasses to bubble glass are brisk, and everyone profits. It’s a success story, one that can instruct Tacomans. That, after all, is part of the point of this jumelage. We each learn from the other. Biot’s civic leaders learned how crucial our volunteers, including those with ties to churches, are to the health and life of the city. They were surprised to hear about Tacoma’s mural project and community gardens, and delighted with the packets of seeds Ed Hume sent to them. Catherine Sarnat, is a volunteer with and donor to Tacoma’s Sister City program, “We took a positive step toward huge cultural and economic opportunities with the recent visit to Biot by our delegation from Tacoma,� she said. “Our French hosts received us most graciously, and we are deeply appreciative. The experience was unforgettable. Glass artists from both cities have started a dialogue about collaborating on art projects to sell. Mayor Dermit has a vision of establishing a gallery dedicated to these projects. A student from Whitman College got a summer internship in Biot to work with Pascale Nicol, who is in charge of Cultural affairs.� There is more. The local middle school is working on setting up a student exchange program. The people we met in Biot have asked that we add them as contributors to the Glass Sisters blog, and maintain it as an ongoing conversation. And, of course, we have standing invitations to our new friends to become old friends, and visit us any time in a city that becomes more beautiful every year.

Using those dollars would lessen the need for an LID or other local tax to come up with the $50 million local match of the $150 million project. “That is something I have been thinking about a lot,� Campbell said. Whatever route gains the council nod, Mayor Marilyn Strickland said that it is important that the route provide a spine for future Link expansions that would reach to other neighborhoods. “It is important to understand that we eventually want a city-wide system,� she said. All totaled, Sound Transit has reviewed 24 route ideas and has pared the list down to three top choices and the two alternatives during the last two years. The other routes on the short list

are: one that would run from the Theater District station to Stadium and up to 6th Avenue and end at Union Avenue for $163 million; one that would run from East 25th Street to Portland Avenue for $119 million; and one that would loop up Stadium from the Theater District and down MLK to South 19th Street for $133 million. The target budget for the new line is $150 million that would be split evenly between Sound Transit, a federal grant and the yet-to-be determined “local partnership.� The next step toward that could come with a transportation master plan that would aid the next route selection that will likely be funded by a yet-to-be Sound Transit 3 package in the works for a ballot in 2016.

STADIUM SCORES EARLY AGAINST NORTH KITSAP Tigers top Vikings to stay in second

PAXTON IMPRESSES, BUT BEES TOP RAINIERS Home opener suspended by rain

By Jeremy Helling

By Steve Mullen



ith an intriguing group of prospects ready to show their wares and a large opening night crowd waiting in eager anticipation, everything was in line for a great night of baseball for the Tacoma Rainiers on April 12. But Mother Nature intervened at Cheney Stadium, and the Rainiers ultimately fell 8-4 in the contest that was resumed on April 13. Before the hard rains came, Rainiers starting pitcher James Paxton was giving the fans a show of his own. The big left-hander struck out six batters in four and two-thirds innings while touching as high as 98 miles per hour on the radar gun. “James has done a real good job of getting command of his breaking pitches, which he did not have last year,” said Rainiers manager Daren Brown. “His velocity was great. His progression is coming along nicely to this point.” But he ran into trouble with his control in the fifth inning, walking three batters and giving up three hits as he gave way to Lucas Luetge, who inherited a 5-0 deficit. “I started to aim my pitches in the fifth inning when I should have just stayed with regular arm slots in the

Eager to put an overtime loss to first-place Peninsula-Gig Harbor the week before behind them, the Stadium lacrosse team made sure there was no suspense against North Kitsap. The Tigers took a 7-0 lead in the first quarter, and Patrick Holcomb and Aaron Park tallied six goals apiece as Stadium took a 20-3 win at home over the Vikings on April 15. “We just wanted to come out strong, and not play down but play to our very best,” said Holcomb, who scored two goals in the opening five minutes to give Stadium a 2-0 lead. Jonny Eyre, Edgar Valentine and Harry Dillman added goals of their own in the next 10 minutes, and Park added his first goal on an emphatic overhead slam from the left side to make it 6-0 in the 17th minute. “This year we have a lot of scoring threats, which has been really, really nice,” said Stadium head coach T.J. Serrianne. “The offense isn’t run for one specific person, so it really just helps everybody get open.” Stadium leading scorer Noah Leonard followed one minute later with a goal that bounced in front of the net and past Viking keeper Nick Brown. The Tigers’ dominance was evident in the fact that they did not allow a shot on goal until 10 seconds left in the opening period, when North Kitsap’s Kellson Arthurs got his squad on the board with a goal. “If we have the ball they can’t score,” Serrianne said. “The less we play defense the better. We have a great defense and I have a lot of confidence in them, but again, they can’t score if they don’t have the ball.” See LACROSSE / page A9

FALCONS GAINING STEAM, TOP ABES Santos tallies pair of goals for Foss By Jeremy Helling

The Foss boys soccer team came into this season with high expectations after returning a good portion of the squad that advanced to the district playoffs for the first time ever last spring. After a rough start to the season, the Falcons continued their recent roll with a 3-1 win over Lincoln on April 11 at Mount Tahoma Stadium. “They’re gelling,” said Foss head coach Mark Kramer. “They’re a great team in my opinion because of the way they get along with each other…they’re unselfish, they’re encouraging. They don’t get down on each other, they don’t start chirping at each other. They are a fun team to coach.” The Falcons got on the board in the 15th minute, as senior midfielder Pablo Santos converted a penalty kick

after being taken out in the box. Santos doubled the lead just over 20 minutes later, corralling a ball from 40 yards out and driving a beautiful strike over the Lincoln keeper. “I practice (that shot) a lot, and I think that’s the benefit I get from it,” Santos said. Kramer noted that with the striking ability of Santos, fellow midfielder Rene Ramos and forward Jesus Perez, the Falcons have developed some new

After breezing past the field in the 400-meter dash at the prestigious Arcadia Invitational in Oregon the weekend before, Foss’ Marcus Chambers decided to turn his attention elsewhere at the Tacoma Invitational on April 13 at Lincoln Bowl. Despite running the 100-meter dash for the first time this season, Chambers still emerged with the victory with a time of 10.80 seconds, and added a win in his more familiar 200-meter dash to headline the local competitors at the 35-team event. “I don’t really know technique for the 100, because I’ve never really talked about it,” said Chambers, who added that he wants to focus on improving his speed to

help break the state record in the 200-meter dash. “I really had no thought process going into it, it was just ‘go in and run.’ “I wanted to be in the last heat to run with the big guys, but since I didn’t have any (seed) time, they put me in the first heat. It was fun still.” The wet conditions also did not stop Chambers from running a season-best 21.44 seconds in the 200, just over fourtenths of a second slower than the state record he hopes to break soon. The Falcon senior recently committed to the University of Oregon, and was clad in Ducks gear the entire afternoon. “When I went on my visit, the kids just treated me like I was already part of the team. (It’s) track city. They have a great atmosphere. That’s what I love.”

Tacoma Baptist also had a strong contingent on the afternoon, as Rebecca McDonald set a season best of 12.72 seconds in winning the 100-meter dash while also placing second in the 200-meter dash in 27.02 seconds. Crusader teammate Austin Lutterloh placed fourth in the 300-meter hurdles in a season-best 41.02 seconds while also taking fifth in the 110meter hurdles. Lincoln had a strong showing in the field events, led by senior Jada Harvey, who placed second in the girls discus with a season-best toss of 121 feet while adding a second-place finish in the shot put and sixth-place finish in the javelin throw. Boys teammate Josh Eckwood took third in the long jump with a mark of 20 feet and seven inches, Dehonta Hayes added a fifth-

place finish in the triple jump and Dontae Swenson took fifth in the high jump. Wilson’s James Sivonen led the Rams’ effort with a fifth-place finish in the 300-meter hurdles in a season-best 41.11 seconds, while the girls team of Violet Morrow, Bethany Montgomery, Aujanique Doss and Amanda Darden took fifth in the 4X100-meter relay for the Rams. Charles Wright Academy’s strong cross-country running background was showcased in Ruben Riordan’s secondplace finish in the 3,200-meter run in a personal-best nine minutes and 18.52 seconds, while teammate David Goldstone placed fifth in the 1,600-meter run.

or well over three quarters, neither Meeker nor Gray could get anything going offensively against each other. But after getting a key turnover, Meeker launched the winning drive late in the fourth quarter, and Gray’s last-gasp effort came up just short as the Wolverines took a 6-0 road win on April 11. “Our defense has been the thing that has clicked faster than our offense,� said Meeker head coach David Shepard, speaking on the shutout performance. “That’s been the best part. Our tackling is not amazing, but we always seem to be in the right spot.� After a scoreless first half, Meeker got the ball in good position after recovering a fumble on the second play of the second half. But the Pilots’ defense stood firm, forcing a three-andout, and the offense looked to get some momentum going. But after quarterback Bishop Fejeran

scrambled for seven yards on 4th-and-5 to keep the following drive going near midfield, the Wolverines’ Bernard Tauese came up with another huge fumble recovery early in the fourth quarter near midfield. “We had a great effort in the first half,� said Gray head coach Daniel Dominguez. “I think we let up a bit in the second half.� Meeker then launched an eight-play, 56-yard drive – all on the ground – that was capped by an eight-yard touchdown run by Dallas Williams, who didn’t play in the first half but had six carries for 33 yards on the drive. “(The game plan) was just hang on to the ball and let’s chew clock,� Shepard said of the final drive. “Last week we couldn’t really get anything going on offense either. We just kind of chewed clock when we needed to and controlled the ball when we needed to.� But Gray stayed alive thanks to a 35-yard completion from



Fejeran to Michael Nelson, getting the ball to the Meeker sixyard line with just seconds to play. “It was a great catch, we just couldn’t punch it in at the end,� Dominguez said. Fejeran made a valiant effort to scramble to the right on the final play, but was stopped three yards short of the tying score. Meeker moved to 2-0 on the season, relying mainly on their defense once again. The Wolverines got a 14-7 win over Truman the week before thanks to an interception return for a touchdown and a fumble recovery for another score. By Jeremy Helling


If the early season results are any indication, the return of middle school football to Tacoma has been a great success. Twenty-five years in the making, the talent level of the sixth-through-eighth

grade players will soon give local high school coaches reasons to smile. It was no different on April 11, as Stewart travelled to Mason and got a 14-7 win to go 2-0 on the young season. “We have a mixed bag of talent on this team, but they are a very ambitious group that works hard in practice every day,� said Stewart head coach Jason Ono, who also assists head coach Pat Johnson on the Foss High School football staff. He added that the 2-0 start can be greatly attributed to his team’s defensive efforts. “The hard work that these kids put out on the field is a great tribute to our coaching staff.� Stewart got on the board first when Micah Tate picked off a pass and rambled 15 yards to the end zone on the opening possession of the game, and the twopoint conversion gave Stewart an 8-0 lead. The Stewart defense continued to dominate the first half and hold the Mason offense to just three first downs in the


first 16 minutes of play, as the score stood at 8-0 at halftime. Stewart would increase their lead late in the third quarter. Facing 3rd-and-17 from their own 40-yard line, quarterback Austin Music hit David Harris with a 57-yard strike, and one play later Leroy Sole ran it in from three yards out to make it 14-0. Mason got its first break of the game when on fourth down inside their own ten-yard line, Zane Brewer recovered a botched snap in the end zone, and Kathleen Flanagan added the extra point after to cut it to 14-7. But Stewart would proceed to run out the clock to stay undefeated. “We have a good group of experienced players,� said Stewart player Marquis Jenkins. “The ones who don’t have a lot of playing experience are getting it real fast, and with mine and some of my teammates’ playing experience, we are getting better every day.� By Steve Mullen

Pamper your body and soul at Davinci Salon and Spa D

aVinci Salon and Spa, in the heart of Lakewood at 6501 Motor Ave. S.W., offers a professional staff that provides a host of services and treatments ranging from haircuts, foils and waxing to manicures, pedicures, massages and permanent cosmetics for both men and women. Using the most modern techniques and materials available, the services are meant to make clients look and feel better as well as save time during their busy schedules. One such service is DaVinci’s permanent cosmetics treatments that licensed cosmetologist and salon owner Sunny Galaviz has practiced since 1995, following training in Washington and California. Permanent cosmetics are sought by runners, swimmers, quadriplegia patients, alopecia clients and everyday people who don’t want to bother with doing their makeup every morning. Galaviz uses carbon-based pigment that is inert and organic in a process that is similar to a tattoo, although the disposable needle doesn’t go as deeply into the skin and therefore causes less discomfort. “People usually ask me if it is painful,â€? Galaviz said. “That is the ďŹ rst thing they ask.â€? The short answer to that is not really, and numbing gel helps with that. The treatment avoids allergic reactions to many traditional cosmetics and saves time and money by avoiding the daily rituals of putting on makeup. Permanent cosmetics place pigments just beneath the upper layer of the eyebrows, lips, eyeline or other area where makeup is applied. Davinci also provides professional hand, foot and nail services that rejuvenates hands, arms and feet with the clipping and shaping the nails; cuticle cleanup and a wide range of nail polish colors.

When time calls for a “spa day,â€? DaVinci offers a deluxe spa pedicure that runs 50 minutes and is designed to help reduce the toxins in the body with a deep soak followed by a choice of scrubs, to exfoliate the skin for brighter, more youthful skin and cuticle attention, to promote healthy nail growth before they are ďŹ led and buffed to ensure strength and resiliency. A massage then relaxes the muscles and promotes better blood ow. Reexology stimulates the reex points of the feet, relaxing and rejuvenating each and every part of the body, including the glands and organs. Unlike acrylic nail treatments at other salons, all ďŹ lings at DaVinci are done with IBD gel prior to application and maintenance to provide an even ďŹ nish and glass-like shine.

We’ve got guys in the middle that can change the ball, we get the ball on the wing and get penetration, we just don’t

have the guy to finish.” Foss then took control in the 52nd minute when Koby Nguyen stool a pass off a goal kick and sent it to Perez, who slotted it in the left side to make it 3-0. The Abes finally got on the board 11 minutes later on Leon’s beautiful free-kick goal – which he curled into the left netting from the right side – but it was too late to have much of an impact. The win gave the Falcons three league victories along with one draw, as they sat in a third-place tie with North Thurston. They will host Timberline on April 22 at 6:30 p.m. at Mount Tahoma Stadium, and travel to Shelton on April 25 at 6 p.m. The Abes will host Wilson on April 23 at 7 p.m. before travelling to Timberline on April 25 at 7 p.m.

early part of the game,” Paxton said. “But I’ll get back to doing that my next start.” Another interested observer of Paxton’s efforts on Friday was catcher Mike Zunino, who has been tearing it up offensively early in the season. The Golden Spikes award winner in 2012 from the University of Florida, Zunino was happy with Paxton’s effort. “James had some great velocity to go along with his curveball tonight. He’s going to be great before this season is over.” The Rainiers’ offense, meanwhile, was having a tough time solving Salt Lake right-handed pitcher A.J. Schugel, who gave up two hits and struck out seven in four innings of work.

Tacoma’s one threat came in the second inning. But with runners on second and third with two outs, center fielder Denny Almonte struck out to end the inning. After the game resumed the following day, Salt Lake would add on to their lead, scoring one run in both the seventh and the eighth innings for a 7-0 lead. The Rainiers’ bats came alive in the bottom of the eighth to make this a game. Carlos Peguero and Rich Poythress both drove in a pair of runs in the inning, but it would not be enough as the Bees would add another run in the ninth to close out the scoring and the 8-4 win for Salt Lake. In the seven-inning regularly scheduled game that followed, Salt Lake rallied for two runs off of Tacoma reliever Danny Farquhar in the seventh to take a 4-3 win over the Rainiers.

The Vikings’ Dylan Taylor cut it to 7-2 after outracing the Tigers’ defense for a goal early in the second period, but Eyre, Park and Holcomb responded with goals in the next five minutes to regain control. Valentine and Park added two goals apiece in the third quarter, and Holcomb scored three more goals in the final period as Stadium shut out North Kitsap 10-0 in the second half. Holcomb noted that his squad – comprised of players from Wilson High School, Lakes High School, Steilacoom High School and School of the Arts, along with Stadium – has come a long way from last season. “We have come really close this year, and I think we’ve clicked as a team a lot more than last year. I think that’s helped the chemistry, and with that the better play on the field.” The Tigers sit at 4-1 in league play, just one game behind Peninsula-Gig Harbor, whom they will face again at home on April 29 at 8 p.m. The Tigers will next host South Kitsap on April 22 at 6 p.m. at Stadium Bowl.

It encourages fun and creativity for the young people of the area. Costumes, pets, music and non-motorized floats make this a special event. This will be the 52nd year for this parade.

You have the song about TMZ on that record. Have you actually been harassed by paparazzi from TMZ? Weird Al: I do get stopped. I go for a coffee drink, and then there are cameras in my face. But, you know, I have a pleasant conversation with them like I would with anybody. And after a while they say “thank you” and go on their merry way. It’s never gotten to the point where it’s been detrimental to my sanity. TW: I vaguely remember from the last time I talked to you that you had a different look back then and you could kind of hide by shaving off your mustache and slicking back your hair. Weird Al: Right, I don’t really hide so much any more. I think less people recognize me since 1998, which is when I did lose the glasses and the facial hair. In fact, to this day when kids dress up like me for Halloween they still rock the old-school Weird Al look with the glasses and the mustache and the bangs. I guess that was the iconic look. But I like to change it up every 20 years or so just to keep people guessin’. TW: At that rate, we have another five years before the next phase. Weird Al: And then who knows? All bets are off. TW: Are you working on a new album, maybe a sequel to “Trapped in the Drive-Thru?” Weird Al: (Laughs) You know, R. Kelly’s still doing that. But I think I’ve had my say. Yeah, I am working on the new album. I’ve got three tracks that are completely done. I’ve got three more tracks that are written and will be recorded in May, and then I’ll be focusing on the parodies. Beyond that, I can’t give you any information because I don’t know when the right ideas will strike or when the big hit single concept will come to me. There’s no way of possibly anticipating, because I’m always waiting for pop culture to present me with the right opportunity.

Over the years, the Puyallup Tribe of Indians has transformed itself and its role in the community. The Tribe’s determined protection of its natural resources, its pivotal role in development of Tacoma’s port area, the Tribe’s major donations to other governments and to charitable organizations, the new-concept Tahoma Market gas station and convenience store, and the development and expansion of the Tribe’s Emerald Queen Casinos are examples of the Puyallup Tribe’s economic progress. Through its two Emerald Queen Casino locations, Administration, Health Authority, Housing Authority, economic development corporation, and school, the Puyallup Tribe is one of the largest employers in Pierce County with a payroll of more than 3,500 people – 74 percent of whom are non-Native – and total spending in 2011 of nearly $430 million. This spending supports the community by paying good wages and generous benefits to individuals, and by purchasing goods and services from local suppliers, vendors, contractors and construction companies. Assistance provided to the broader Native American community and the Puyallup Tribal membership also has a far-reaching impact in the community as most of these dollars are in turn spent in the local economy. The Puyallup Tribe is continuously living up to its name, which means, “generous and welcoming behavior to all people.� As such, the Tribe is a key sponsor of countless local charities, non-profit organizations, social welfare projects and events that may otherwise suffer in today’s tight economy. Despite economic uncertainties across the country, the South Sound is doing well, and the Puyallup Tribe of Indians plays a key role in keeping that a reality. From funding education, jobs, healthcare, city improvement projects, crime prevention and environmental efforts, the Tribe’s tradition as the “generous people� is as strong today as it ever was. This pamphlet gives several examples of the Tribe’s participation in the community.

'.&#-'#.,#-/'+*.6),-+1'*%$5!'#*!4+-+/#!/()+* Puyallup Tribe operates two of the five hatcheries on the Puyallup River, playing a vital role in salmon restoration and commercial fishing alongside non-tribal facilities. With the Tribe’s acquisition of an innovative fish screw system, the fisheries operations expect to become more efficient and effective in 2013 than ever before. The system moves fish through peak returns without relying on their natural migration habits, according to Russ Ladley, resource protection manager for the Tribe. The system reduces the time and resources required to move fish during peak times, and moves them more efficiently improving hatchery production. “This has greatly lessened man hours needed for fish spawning,â€? Ladley said. “We have had trouble loading fish during peak returns when they don’t want to move through the fish ladder, but the fish screw would make it not optional to keep moving.â€? The application of this system is

growing in the Pacific Northwest, but the Puyallup Tribe is staying ahead of the curve by working closely with fabricators to improve the design and maximize the success of the system. The Puyallup Tribe is leading the way through its hard work, resources, and innovation to improve the system with the hopes it can be utilized by Tribal and non-Tribal fish hatcheries to improve hatchery operations and fish production. In addition to the Tribe’s innovative hatchery operations, a $250,000 2012 project to build an acclimation pond on private land in Clearwater to provide for spring Chinook runs is now complete, and should see its first fish next spring. “This project fills a production hole we’ve had since the road washed away in 2009,� Ladley said. The Tribe’s hatchery is key in providing spring Chinook runs for Tribal and non-Tribal fisherman on the Puyallup River.

/'1# )#-'!*. 43#.  '(('+*'* Indian people pay taxes. They pay most of the same taxes non-Indians pay, and in some cases additional Tribal taxes as well. Indians have a few tax exemptions, just as non-Indians do. The Puyallup Tribe and its members are dramatic examples of these realities. Indian tribes collect taxes that are then sent to the appropriate taxing bodies. The Tribe withholds federal income tax from its employees (who include Puyallup Tribal members, other Indians, and nonIndians), and from the per capita payments it makes to its members. As federal law provides, the Tribe sends that money to the I.R.S., a total of over $42 million in FY 2012. As an employer, the Tribe pays its share of payroll taxes and withholds payroll taxes from its employees, which is then sent to the Social Security Administration and other government agencies. Those taxes added up to over $16 million in FY 2012. Under the terms of agreements with the State of Washington and local governments, the Tribe collects and pays tax funds to those governments, including about $10 million to the State of Washington, and $300 thousand to the City of Fife. Unlike all other governments, non-trust land owned by the Puyallup Tribal government is often subject to state and local property taxes. In 2012, the Puyallup Tribe paid nearly $1 million dollars in property taxes to state and local governments. The total amount in taxes collected, withheld, or paid to the various governments by the Tribe in FY 2012 was over $70 million.

Pam Grier, Mondo Guerra are Dining Out for Life By Matt Nagle


pril 25 is Pierce County AIDS Foundation’s Dining Out for Life, when nearly 70 restaurants in Pierce, Thurston and Lewis counties will be donating 25 percent of diners’ food bills to PCAF. Led by AIDS service organizations in 60 cities in the U.S. and Canada that day, the beauty of this fundraiser is that anyone and everyone can take part, including celebrities who loan their star power to the cause – like film and TV star Pam Grier and “Project Runway� alum Mondo Guerra.


Best Memoir of 2010 from the African American Literary Organization. In 2011, Grier received her Doctorate of Humane Letters from Maryland University Eastern Shore, an Honorary Doctorate of Science from Langston University, the Golda Meir Leadership Award and the Entertainment AIDS Alliance Visionary Award. In collaboration with Subaru of America, Inc. and the National Multicultural Western Heritage Museum, she started the first Pam Grier Community Garden and Education Center in Dallas. And just last year she received the Legend Award at the Essence Black Women In Hollywood Awards. Tacoma Weekly had the chance to chat briefly with Grier this week from her home in Denver:

cess, it will be the actor who will “bring it� emotionally and physically. The role is extremely challenging. At this time, I don’t know who that will be. But whoever she is, she will have to bring it! TW: And lastly, anything else at all that you’d like your fans to know? Grier: Be sure to participate in Dining Out for Life hosted by Subaru on Thursday, April 25! Share this event with the people that are important in your life – I am definitely looking forward to it!


TW: Your ongoing support of Dining Out is so very appreciated. Is this something you see yourself supporting for years to come? Grier: Absolutely! I’ll be supporting Dining Out for Life for many years, yes. Dining Out for Life is everyday for me. TW: Since we’re talking about dining, what gastronomical delights have you been enjoying lately? Grier: I’ve been improving my culinary arts by creating some delicious Indian cuisine. I’ve also been making Chicken Mole, a favorite of Quentin Tarantino. GRIER

This is Grier’s third year to speak out on behalf of people with HIV/AIDS by being a celebrity spokesperson for Dining Out for Life. Known for her iconic portrayals in films like “Foxy Brown� (1974), “Coffy� (1973) and Quentin Tarantino’s “Jackie Brown� (1997), among many others, and her television roles in “The L Word� and “Law & Order: SVU,� Grier’s appeal remains strong to this day. In 2010 she wrote her memoir “Foxy: My Life in Three Acts,� which became a New York Times Bestseller and won

TW: Turning to your work, what sorts of projects are you into these days? Is there something extra-special you could tell us about? Grier: I’ve been working on several projects: the biopic of my memoir, the musical “Foxy,� a documentary of the process and two indie films, one of which is being shot in London. TW: Rumor has it that Halle Berry may portray you? Grier: The script of “Foxy� has been completed. In terms of the casting pro-

When fashion designer Mondo Guerra entered into the competition on the eighth season of “Project Runway,� he had no idea he would come out to the world as being HIV-positive. It happened during a challenge in which he created a pant with a bold “+� pattern (as in “+� meaning “positive�), and when lightly pressed by the show’s judges to reveal why that particular pattern

Local. Handmade. Goodness.




appealed to him so, he took the opportunity to reveal the emotional secret he had kept hidden for 10 years. Now he’s an outspoken advocate for people living with HIV/AIDS and so has begun his first year as spokesperson for Dining Out for Life. “I am a creature of expression through fashion and through my advocacy work. Dining Out for Life is our opportunity to celebrate friends, food and being truly fabulous in helping others,â€? he said. Since taking that leap of faith and revealing his HIV status, Guerra says his life has become much better, particularly between him and his family. He said he was amazed at the outpouring of support from others with HIV as well and from the general public. “Me revealing my HIV status on ‘Project Runway’ opened my eyes not only for myself but to the love and support from the HIV-positive community,â€? Guerra said. “I got tons of e-mails. It’s really important for me to take on the responsibility to continue the conversation about HIV.â€? Especially for Dining Out for Life, Guerra has created a limited edition T-shirt design called “Movers & Shakersâ€? featuring a saltand-pepper shaker design. They cost $25 and can be purchased at www.subarugear. com. The shirt is available in a ladies v-neck and men’s crew neck, in sizes small-2XL. Guerra is also working with Merck pharmaceutical company on a project called I Design, a national HIV education campaign to help empower people living with HIV to play an active role in working with their doctors to design an HIV treatment plan. Guerra said this goes back to his basic message – to talk about it. He said that being HIV positive can present a lot for one person to handle, so talking to a doctor can help alleviate some of that stress. “Talking about it is so important. We forget to let people support us. It’s okay to let people in, to feel love from other people. When I was first diagnosed I felt afraid, scared, lonely and damaged‌ it’s a very scary thing. It’s important to let people in and continue to love you.â€? And to parents and friends of those who are living with HIV, Guerra advises them to have an open ear, mind and heart when their loved one chooses to speak to them about their HIV status. “I would say just listen and be engaged. You don’t even have to say anything back, but it is your responsibility if you do answer back to educate yourself first.â€? Check out Guerra’s mad skills at www. and on Facebook.

The Swiss turns 20, plans three-day birthday party Vicci Martinez to headline kick-off By Ernest A. Jasmin


owntown Tacoma has experienced a fullblown renaissance over the last decade, with the additions of the Greater Tacoma Convention and Trade Center, Museum of Glass and light rail, among other fixtures. And heralding the area’s makeover 20 years ago was the opening of the Swiss Tavern, at 1904 Jefferson Ave. One of Tacoma’s most popular nightclubs will celebrate its 20th anniversary with three big days of music, food and libation, from April 26 to 28. But owner Jack McQuade remembers a time when the block was a lot seedier than it is now and, at times, it seemed doubtful he and his partners would last as long as they did. “That area was notoriously known for black tar heroin,� recalled McQuade, who opened the business in 1993 with Bob Hill, Gayl Bertagni and Marty Kling. “Before we got in and remodeled, the Tacoma Police Department was just about ready to put the padlock on the door and board up the building because of the drug activity,� he said. “So we were lucky to get in there, close it up for six months, remodel it and then started cleaning up the neighborhood. I’d work the days and stay out front, and Bob worked the nights, and I would write down license plate numbers. We’d escort women to their cars. It was a rough area.� McQuade is the last remaining partner at the Swiss. Kling was bought out years ago. Hill retired on Jan. 1, but will be back to perform with the Twang Junkies on April 28. Bertagni is commemorated by a portrait that hangs in the showroom. She died in 2009, the victim of an accident near Packwood. She ran the kitchen, and several of her specialties will be brought back next weekend in her honor. “She was the heart and soul of the place,� McQuade said, “and we’re just going to keep things going in her
