CROWDS TO LOCAL MARKETS Special events that range from historical walks to live music By Steve Dunkelberger stevedunkel@tacomaweekly.com

The Broadway Farmers Market marks the unofficial start of summer for downtown workers who have been sheltering themselves by bunkering down in their offices and cubicle farms during the rainy and cold weather of winter and spring. The Tacoma Farmers Market, which operated the Broadway market and three smaller markets in the city, has been rec-

ognized as one of the “100 Best Farmers Markets in America” by MSN.com as well as the 2015 “Public Places Award” as part of the New Tacoma Awards sponsored by the Tacoma-Pierce County Chamber of Commerce. The markets, which now draw about 70,000 visitors and generates $625,000 in sales each season, have become an institution and sparked smaller markets in neighborhoods. But the effort started small.

Marcia Moe, who was the Pantages Theater’s director of development, had watched a drug deal go down in broad daylight outside the historic theater where she worked on the corner of Ninth and Broadway. The city was at its low point. It was 1989. She was fed up and wanted more for her community, and its current renaissance hadn’t quite taken hold. “At that time, people just didn’t go downtown unless they had to,” said u See MARKETS / page A9

HELPS PTSD VICTIM FIND HOPE By Larry LaRue larry@tacomaweekly.com

Nick Naccarato was about 25 when his brain began to mess with him, and 26 when it shut his life down. He could still think – for a time he maintained a security job at Microsoft and attended Tacoma Community College. Then one night, he drove through

a series of red lights near his Tacoma home. “I realized it was a panic attack,” Naccarato said. “After that, I started having them daily.” A veteran of nearly two years with the National Guard in Afghanistan, where he was a fire team leader, Naccarato tried to deal with his stress, but simply could not. “One day I just didn’t wake

up for work,” he said. “I realized I didn’t want to work anymore. I knew something was wrong, but I’d been trained to deal with my own problems. “I spent the next two years house-bound.” His parents, restaurateur Stan Naccarato and teacher Elizabeth Gettel, went from concerned to overwhelmed to frightened. u See HOPE / page A9

The trickle down effects of Tacoma Water finding lead in its water system in April that then prompted Tacoma Public Schools and Metro Parks Tacoma to test their facilities has rippled to surrounding school districts. Tests of water at park water fountains and facilities have so far shown no lead contamination. Suburban school districts around the county, from Bethel to Fife to Clover Park and White River, are testing the water fountain and faucets in their schools as a precaution against possible lead contamination. Fife, for example, conducted tests of water at its schools and is awaiting the results. “We are hoping to have the

THE SHOCK KEEP ROLLING A10 Pothole Pig ...............A2 Crime Stoppers.........A3

By Steve Dunkelberger

The legal challenges surrounding the proposed Liquefied Natural Gas plant in the works for Tacoma’s tideflats continue to chug through legal reviews. The Puyallup Tribe sued to stop the plant with the legal argument that the environmental review last year failed to properly address the impacts the plant would have of the salmon-bearing waterway. Specifically, the tribe worries that construction of the facility would churn up the soil at the Superfund cleanup site. That soil could then leak into the waterway and threaten fish runs and the nearby tribal marina. A critic of the plant has found himself in court to gain information about how the plant’s potential hazards and how the Tacoma Fire Department would respond

WARM WEATHER PROMPTS OPENING OF SPRAYGROUNDS Metro Parks Tacoma staff usually use the month of May to prepare spraygrounds for summer, with normal operation only on weekends. This year, the parks maintenance team stepped up its testing in the hope of providing more service on hot days. Their work paid off in time for this week’s warm weather: Four of the district’s 10 spraygrounds will be open with limited hours May 10 to 13. · Norpoint Park - 4818 Nassau Ave. N.E. · SERA Campus (near STAR Center) - 3873 S. 66th St. · Titlow Park - 8425 6th Ave. · Wright Park - 501 South I St. These four locations will be only open Tuesday, Wednesday, Thursday and Friday this week from 2-7 pm. The public’s patience is appreciated since this early opening overlaps with the maintenance staff’s pre-season testing period. “We know people in the park district will welcome the early opening, given the warm weather,” said Joey Furuto, community and neighborhood parks manager. “We just ask for people to be patient if they encounter any bugs this week. Since there is no scheduled afternoon staffing this time of year, if anything is not working correctly the sprayground may have to be shut down until the next morning.” All 10 sprayground locations are open every Saturday and Sunday, regardless of the weather, from 10 a.m. to 8 p.m. Beginning Monday, May 30, all of the spraygrounds will be open seven days per week until Labor Day.

TACOMA MINORITY BUSINES CENTER RECEIVES $1.5 MILLION GRANT U.S. Senator Maria Cantwell (D-Wash.), the former Chairwoman of the Senate Committee on Small Business and Entrepreneurship, applauded the U.S. Department of Commerce’s $1.5 million, five-year award to the City of Tacoma to support operation of a Minority Business Development Agency (MBDA) Business Center. The grant program aims to support minority-owned firms create jobs, develop businesses, and compete in a global economy. “This grant is an important step to drive new economic opportunities in Tacoma,” said Cantwell. “Promoting inclusive growth benefits the entire community and I will continue to fight to make sure women and minorities have the chance to compete on a more level playing field.” The decision comes after Senator Cantwell sent a letter of support to Secretary of Commerce, Penny Pritzker. The Business Center offers training, mentoring, and counseling to help minority-owned small businesses. It also helps connect minority businesses with resources they need to start exporting their products. Cantwell has championed increasing opportunities for minority and women entrepreneurs. Earlier this year, the federal government achieved its five percent women-owned small business contracting goal for the first time in history – thanks in part to Cantwell’s Women’s Small Business Procurement Parity Act. In 2014, Cantwell released a report, “21st Century Barriers to Women’s Entrepreneurship,” which discovered that women entrepreneurs account for just $1 out of every $23 in small business lending and are more likely to be turned down for loans or receive less favorable terms than men. Cantwell introduced the Women’s Small Business Ownership Act and has supported other legislation to address barriers uncovered by the report.


Longtime Tacoma resident Robert Glenn was so excited to see the Pothole Pig that we just had to include him in this week's pothole picture. Thank you for your longtime readership Robert Glenn.

Dear Editor, I called the Pothole Pig number several weeks ago and within a week a crew filled the potholes at the corner of 6th & Aurora. I called the city and left a message thanking them for their quick action. Thanks to TW for promoting road repair. 'ARY&INKs4ACOMA 7! Tacoma has a tremendous pothole problem, and the residents know 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.” 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 roads riddled with holes, and continue those efforts. Two road packages passed by voters last year added money to the city's street fund. 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.

FARMERS MARKET TO HONOR FOUNDERS AT FUNDRAISER On May 19, the Board of Directors and staff of the Tacoma Farmers Market (TFM) will present Marcia Moe and Norma Honeysett with the Community Builders Award. Terry and Dick Carkner, of Terry’s Berries, will also be honored as the Farmer of the Year. Honeysett and Moe founded the Tacoma Farmers Market as a way to counter downtown’s reputation as a dirty, uninspiring and sometimes dangerous place. In 1989, they reached out to dozens of individuals and organizations to invite them to participate in a farmers market. For nine months, they cajoled and planned, listened to all the reasons a market would fail: moms with strollers would never come downtown, 2 previous markets had failed, local businesses wouldn’t support the intrusion and parking woes. They hosted a wine and cheese reception at the Pantages Theatre, where Honeysett was Development Director; 5 people attended, four of whom were Norma, Marcia and their husbands. “The real problem was we were dealing with realists rather than dreamers like us,” said Marcia. Their initial budget was $6,000, which was $6,000 more than they had. Marcia and Norma were undaunted, and raised enough money through donations to cover basic operations and promotion for the first season. Next was to secure vendors for the first season. “We had to con them,” said Norma, and clearly whatever they said was inspirational enough for 30 vendors to sign up. In June of 1990, the first market opened on Antique Row. Nearly every vendor sold out. The market soon became the center of busy Thursdays; Antique Row merchants enjoyed increased shoppers, and market vendors thrived. The market eventually relocated to Broadway. AsHope anyone In whoThe has been to aOf Broadway market Foster Life A Child in the last several years can attest, the Tacoma Farmers Market is a huge success today, welcoming more than 70,000 visitors a year, and generating more than $625,000 in revenue for the market vendors. TFM Board President Sarah Miller said, “It’s hard to imagine downtown Tacoma without a farmers market—and even harder to imagine how hard Marcia and Norma had to work to get it off the ground.

Downtown Tacoma’s renaissance owes a great deal to their passion and perseverance.” Terry and Dick Carkner were early vendors at TFM, avid supporters of the market, and Terry served on the Board of Directors for several years.

TACOMA IS A 2016 ETSY MAKER CITY Championing a new model for economic prosperity thanks to a growing number of creative micro-entrepreneurs – or “makers” – who have worked with local government to achieve success, Tacoma has been selected by Etsy as an Etsy Maker City for 2016. Tacoma is one of just 13 cities, selected from hundreds of applicants across the United States and Canada, to achieve this honor. “An Etsy Maker City recognizes that local manufacturing puts people and ideas at the center of commerce, and empowers them to build creative businesses on their own terms,” said Mayor Marilyn Strickland. “This approach helps ensure that economic opportunity is inclusive and promotes entrepreneurship.” On May 12 and 13, Tacoma Arts Administrator Amy McBride, Stephen Jones of Tacoma Manufacturing, and Tim and April Norris of TimplusApril will join 12 other “maker” communities at the Etsy Maker Summit in Brooklyn, NY. The summit is designed to bring together creatives, and local governments supportive of their creative community, for the purpose of creating actionable initiatives to bring home and implement throughout the year. “Stephen and TimplusApril each applied separately, and shared their great talent and the support that the City of Tacoma provides to creatives through Spaceworks and other innovative programs,” said McBride. “We are honored to be selected. Tacoma has such a rich foundation of talent, as well as a history of creating and manufacturing, and we want to take full advantage of this opportunity.” Continuing Tacoma’s tradition of fine manufacturing, Jones designs and produces handcrafted goods in a coworking space located in the Nalley Valley. He started his company, Tacoma Manufacturing, with a salvaged industrial sewing machine purchased from a military auction. Jones now designs and manufactures products for a variety of brands, including his original brand, Black Anchor. The Norris’s, a creative couple and the parents of twins, bring their backgrounds in design, architecture, art and music to make art and design objects for individuals and families who live a life of adventure. Etsy has a large, active and diverse global community of “maker” businesses. Etsy Maker Cities were selected based on a number of criteria, including community involvement, project ideas and alignment with the Make Cities initiative, which seeks to reimagine creative commerce in ways that build a more fulfilling and lasting world. CELEBRATE STONG WOMEN AT FREIGHTHOUSE SQUARE On Saturday, May 14, Terri Tipi Art Gallery in Freighthouse Square will host an all-day free event in the Rainier Room to honor strong Native women such as Janet McCloud, Audrey Shenandoah, Maiselle Bridges, Valerie Bridges, Wilma Mankiller and Winona Laduke. Come and celebrate these role models of strength with the Puyallup Canoe Family, who will give the opening ceremony, and entertainment by Waylon Mendoza and Jackie Bird, a Plains Indian blues legend who will sing, hoop dance and share a puppet show for youth. There will also be an open mic for strong women stories and an evening fundraising event, $25 or $35 in advance. For more information call (206) 947-7101. ‘IN HER SHOES – THE WOMEN OF FORT NISQUALLY’ A new exhibit at Fort Nisqually Living History Museum will open to the public with a visit from one of the 19th century ladies of the Fort, Letitia Work Huggins. “In Her Shoes: The Women of Fort Nisqually” opened May 7. “This is a family-friendly exhibit exploring the heritage and lives of the girls and women at Fort Nisqually in the 1840s and 1850s,” said Exhibit Curator Chris Fiala Erlich. “It seems fitting to open the exhibit with a visit from Letitia.” Letitia was the daughter of a Hudson’s Bay Company manager and the wife of Fort clerk and manager Edward Huggins. Her story is one of those featured in the exhibit. Her sewing machine and sewing box are two of the objects on display. “In Her Shoes” will be on display through September. Artifacts from the museum’s collection on display include objects made or used by the women of the Fort. Footprints guide young visitors to uncover the biographies of historical women of the Fort from their childhood through adulthood. The visitors can see if period shoes fit and try their hand at women’s work such as planting peas, doing laundry, and sewing. For older visitors, the exhibit explores the challenges these women faced at mid-century as American settlers began arriving in large numbers. The women of Fort Nisqually were the wives and children of company men – the managers and laborers of the Hudson’s Bay Company. Nearly all of the women had mixed Native American and Euro-American heritage. The women labored for their families and for the Company. Some helped with farm chores and washed the laundry. Others hosted visiting dignitaries. Letitia’s visit is made possible through Crafts of the Past, which is sponsored by the Fort Nisqually Foundation and supported by a grant from the Tacoma Arts Commission. see More bulletin board iteMs at tacoMaweekly.coM

ProSecutor to requeSt higher bAil for convicted child moleSter By David Rose Washington’s Most Wanted Q13 Fox

Pierce County Prosecutor Mark Lindquist plans to request a higher bail amount for convicted child rapist, Theodore DAVID ROSE Burnett, who was caught thanks to tips from “Washington's Most Wanted” viewers. Burnett was released from jail on $10,000 bond early Saturday morning after being arrested last Thursday. He pled not guilty to one count of failure to register as a sex offender when he was arraigned. “The deputy prosecutor asked for the standard bail given the information he had at the time of arraignment. Based on new and additional information,

we will be requesting a hearing to significantly raise the bail amount and get this defendant back into custody where he belongs. We will base our arguments on the risk of flight and his danger to the community,” said Lindquist. Burnett was caught thanks to two “Washington’s Most Wanted” viewers who spotted him behind a Chevron gas station in Spanaway.

"He went in the bushes and chugged a beer, started to walk toward Home depot and then he saw a Pierce County vehicle stopped at the light and went straight back into the bushes. That just confirmed my suspicion,” said the anonymous tipsters who helped deputies catch him. “We drove around to the Cash America parking lot to make sure he didn't get out of sight and that's where Pierce

County picked him up.” Burnett had been wanted since Feb. 1, 2016 for failure to register as a sex offender. In 1994, he was convicted of sex abuse first degree and sodomy first degree in Linn County, Ore. He had sexually abused an 8-year-old girl on at least two separate occasions. That same year, he was also convicted of another count of sex abuse first degree. The victim was a 9-yearold girl. In 1978, Burnett was convicted of rape in the third degree for sexually assaulting a 12-year-old girl, who he also got pregnant. "He did not participate in sex offender treatment, so he has not had any help other than being incarcerated," said Pierce County Det. Ed Troyer. Prosecutors will make the bail request at Burnett's next court hearing scheduled for May 17.

THREE MEN CHARGED IN SHOOTING OVER A STREET SIGN Pierce County Prosecutor Mark Lindquist has charged three men with attempted first-degree murder and first-degree assault in the shooting of a Lakewood woman during a dispute over a street sign. On May 5, Lavell Dickey III, 22, Johnteese Walker, 21, and Riley Orak, 19, pleaded not guilty and each were ordered held on $1 million bail. Oark and Walker, who are convicted felons, were also charged with unlawful possession of a firearm in the second degree. "Gang violence is dramatically down in our county but some criminals still haven't got the message," said Prosecutor Mark Lindquist.

"Gang violence is a dead-end street. These defendants will be held fully accountable and our community will be safer with them off of our streets." On May 3, the victim and her boyfriend were standing outside of their ground floor apartment near the intersection of 47th Street SW and 108th Street SW. They saw the three defendants kicking the sign, eventually breaking it. The boyfriend yelled at the defendants, asking them why they were breaking the sign. The men replied with a vulgar remark about Lakewood and began shooting in the couple’s direction, firing a total of 19 rounds. The woman

was struck twice. She is expected to survive. A Lakewood Police sergeant was nearby and heard the gunshots. He saw the defendants running from the scene and pursued them. All three were taken into custody. Police immediately recovered a .45 caliber handgun, and a K-9 later found another handgun with an extended magazine. The guns matched the casings collected at the scene. During an interview with police, one of the defendants said the group was kicking down the sign as a show of disrespect for the rival gang that lived in the neighborhood.

Our View

STILL WATERS helP NO ONe Washington state and local tribes are at a stalemate over salmon fishing limits in Puget Sound waterways. The lack of an agreement means the fishing season remains closed for the first time since the state and tribes have co-managed salmon restoration and recovery efforts. The closure affects not only salmon runs, but all fishing on lakes and rivers that flow into Puget Sound. The Boldt Decision set joint fishery management on Puget Sound waters. Management and harvests were pegged at 50-50 between tribal and nontribal interests. The state and tribes have routinely submitted a joint proposal, but debates this year have yet to be resolved. Washington and the tribes have submitted separate fishery management plans for possible approval. The National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration must approve any plans since the Chinook salmon has been designed as protected under the Endangered Species Act. At issue is how best to manage the increasingly smaller runs of salmon as demand increases and their spawning waters continue to struggle under the chokehold of encroaching development, low water levels and pollution. Just 350 wild – and 3,700 hatchery – Chinook are expected to swim through the Puyallup River this year. That’s about a 25 percent drop from last year. One tribe-backed management proposal included a total non-tribal closure of the Puyallup River system and a reduction of time to six hours for how long tribal gill nets could be on the water. State officials want at least some time for anglers to have access to local salmon. Thus, the stalemate and the protests on riverbanks and hatcheries around the Sound. Arguments and closures will be more common in the years to come if all sides can’t agree to make tough decisions – and concessions – to not just slow the gradual decline in fish counts, but actually start building back those fish stocks. No one – not even the salmon – wins a fishing war. For a complete listing of closures, go to http:// wdfw.wa.gov/fishing/pugetsound_salmon_update.

AwAkeNINg Of UNdercOver BOSS

By Don C. Brunell

One of the highest rated television programs during Super Bowl Week last February was “Undercover Boss.� According to the Nielsen ratings, it drew 6.8 million viewers. By contrast, the Greatest Super Bowl Halftime Shows had 5.72 million. Viewers watched CEOs leave their comfortable corporate offices, disguise themselves as workers, and risk the humiliation of doing something wrong. It is all about an awakening to what really happens on the company’s front lines. Too often people see “big bosses� as aloof and guiding the organization using impersonal computer generated reports. But, at the end of each TV episode, CEOs realize the people who make the products and service their customers are the keys to their success. For example, in 2010 Frontier Airline President Bryan Bedford went undercover finding himself cleaning the inside of airplanes, serving sodas as a flight attendant and emptying jetliners lavatories on the tarmac. He soon realized Frontier workers had to move fast without making mistakes. Keeping airplanes flying is critical to airline’s bottom line. On-time performance in tidy jets with friendly crews keeps passengers flying Frontier. Bedford also learned balance-based sheet decisions can mask problems. Frontier cut wages by 10 percent to save the company. It had real impacts on its family budgets and affected worker reten-

tion. It moved him to expedite restoring lost wages as the airline’s bottom line improved. Leaving corporate headquarters is risky, but it was a way of life for Jim Sinegal, co-founder of Costco. It also was rewarding. By time he retired, Costco was America’s second largest retailer. In 2009, U.S. News and World Report called Sinegal one of “America's Best Leaders because he's not a typical CEO.� Many bosses rely on trusted subordinates and seldom visit the places where people work, but Sinegal made it a point to visit every store each year. He was visible to Costco workers walking through the stores and interacting with them. “Undercover Boss� focuses on a one-time CEO experience. At Costco, employee focus is embedded in the corporate culture. Costco’s way is similar to a 1980s management style attributed Hewlett Packard founders David Hewlett and David Packard called “Management by Walking Around� (MBWA). It is not complicated, but it is a way CEOs connect with their companies and employees. It fosters two-way relationships, which benefits everyone. MBWA has six guiding principles: make it part of your day, don’t bring an entourage, visit everyone, don’t criticize, ask questions and solicit ideas, and follow-up. Noted business leadership authority Ken Blanchard added: “Catch People Doing Something Right� and rec-

ognize them for it. MBWA is a way to sustain a company’s culture shift. It builds teams and recognizes the value of each worker’s work. Suddenly, CEO is a real person, not just a name on the company annual report. When MBWA was introduced, communications were more personal. People met face-to-face and directly talked by phone. There was no voice mail, automated answering machines, texting, video conferencing or e-mailing. That personalization has faded with the shift to text and e-mail. Today, it is not uncommon to see people, including some CEOs, texting during company meetings or checking e-mail. Often it is inadvertent, but it sends the wrong signal. It says what the boss says is important, but it discounts the views and work of others. Our culture has shifted to digital communications. People now have a hard time talking with and listening to one another. It is becoming a huge barrier in the workplace. But the lessons undercover bosses learned are people and relationships still matter. There is no substitute for getting to know your employees and talking with them at their place of work. Don C. Brunell is a business analyst, writer and columnist. He retired as president of the Association of Washington Business, the state’s oldest and largest business organization, and now lives in Vancouver. He can be contacted at theBrunells@msn.com.

Ever since the foundation of the American Republic, there has been both praise for and suspicion of the role the press plays in U.S. political life. Thomas Jefferson famously remarked that, if it were left to him “to decide whether we should have a government without newspapers or newspapers without a government, I would not hesitate a moment to prefer the latter.� And yet, Jefferson was also profoundly disturbed by the politically biased and inaccurate articles that he saw published in the press. As he told James Monroe: “My skepticism as to everything I see in a newspaper makes me indifferent whether I ever see one.� Jefferson’s ambivalence about the press becomes understandable when one considers the distorted reporting that has characterized the current campaign for the U.S. Presidency. Take the case of the Times Union, the largest newspaper in New York State’s heavily populated capital region. With a circulation of 66,835 on weekdays and 128,565 on Sundays, the Times Union focuses on the city of Albany and its suburbs, but also covers the rest of the capital region, including the cities of Schenectady, Troy and Saratoga Springs. Although owned by the Hearst Corporation, the paper has a somewhat more centrist tone. With the New York Presidential primaries looming, it endorsed Hillary Clinton for the Democratic nomination and John Kasich for the Republican. This “moderate� stance meshes well with the politics of Albany, a city that, though overwhelmingly Democratic, has long been controlled by a rather conservative Democratic political “machine.� Consequently, it must have come as an unpleasant shock to the Times Union’s editors when, in the April 19 New York State Democratic primary, Bernie Sanders emerged victorious not only in the city of Albany, but in the entire capital region. Indeed, Sanders garnered 53.3 percent of the Democratic vote in New York’s 20th

Congressional district (an area comprising all of Albany and Schenectady Counties, as well as portions of Rensselaer, Saratoga, and Montgomery Counties). Having defeated Hillary Clinton by a healthy margin of almost seven percent, Sanders won four out of the seven delegates allocated to the district by the New York State Democratic Party. The outcome of the race was a reversal of the results in the 2008 Democratic primary, when Clinton handily defeated Barack Obama in the capital region. This could have provided quite a dramatic feature item for a local newspaper, especially given the fact that a ragtag, volunteer campaign had defeated the Clinton juggernaut – a juggernaut reinforced by Clinton’s eight years of representing New York State in the U.S. Senate, the backing of Clinton by every major Democratic politician in the state, and the loyal campaigning for Clinton by the Albany Democratic “machine.� The David versus Goliath aspects of this story were also strengthened by the contrasting delegate slates for the two rival candidates that appeared on the 20th Congressional district election ballot: the top local elected public officials and Democratic Party leaders for Clinton and a group of obscure community members for Sanders. Here, it seemed, was a newspaper’s dream story. But it wasn’t printed. In fact, the Times Union even failed to report that Sanders had won the race in the capital district. The Times Union article posted on the night of the primary didn’t mention Sanders’s victory at all. Instead, the article, headlined “Donald Trump, Hillary Clinton win in New York,� gave the impression of a Clinton and Trump sweep. “New York,� it proclaimed, “turned out to be the state where the presidential front-runners regained their mojo.� Although the article devoted a good deal of attention to the activities of primary voters in the capital district, it somehow omitted reporting on whom they had voted for. An updated version of the article

appeared the following day in the Times Union, after the five counties’ boards of election had posted the election results online. By this time it was clear that Sanders, though losing heavily to Clinton in the New York City metropolitan region, had defeated Clinton in most other areas of the state. This included not only the 20th Congressional district, but the neighboring 19th and 21st which, all together, provided Sanders with 11 delegates to Clinton’s seven. Even then, however, the writers of the article could not quite bring themselves to say that, in the capital region, where almost all the Times Union’s readers lived and voted, Sanders had won. Instead, they confined themselves to declaring that “Sanders performed well in the more rural regions of upstate – and in the Capital Region.� With a headline this time proclaiming “Big home-state wins boost front-runners,� the article once again left readers with the impression that Clinton had been victorious in the newspaper’s locale while, in reality, the clear victor was Sanders. On the night of April 22, three days after the presidential primary, seven words buried at the very end of a Times Union blog finally let slip the fact that Sanders had won in the 20th Congressional district. The reluctance of the Times Union to report on how residents in its own region had voted, like the negligible coverage the newspaper gave to the vibrant local Sanders campaign in the months leading up to the Presidential primary, is really quite remarkable. But should it surprise us? Probably not. One wonders to what degree this treatment of Sanders’s campaign is a national phenomenon.

‘YOU WON’T MISS THE SALT’ Control your sodium intake and make your food delicious with June Jones’ Mock Salt


HEART HEALTHY. University Place entrepreneur June Jones saw a need and created a solution with her own uniquely blended Mock Salt to season food without adding more sodium. By William Manzanares william@tacomaweekly.com

When you make a product that’s healthy for the world, people get excited about it and that’s certainly been the case with June Jones’ Mock Salt. Based in University Place, since launching her business in 2009, Jones’ product has made its way into more than 40 retail outlets and that number continues to grow as more people discover this salt-free, all-organic salt substitute. “It’s got amazing flavor in it. You can put it on anything you’d normally use salt on,� Jones says. “I don’t use any salt at all anymore – just my seasoning.� By mixing herbs and spices according

to her own special combinations, Jones created a line of salt substitutes that not only taste great but help lower sodium intake, which produces positive health benefits particularly among those with high blood pressure and heart issues. In fact, Jones was inspired to create Mock Salt by an elderly husband and wife who were dealing with his high blood pressure and weren’t satisfied with the salt substitute brands currently on the market. “I am a hairdresser and I used to go to people’s homes and do their hair and I had an elderly couple in their 80s,� Jones said. “He came home one day, just got back from the doctor, and his wife said he’s so skinny right now and if she don’t cook with salt he

wouldn’t eat at all. I asked why they don’t use salt substitutes and she said why don’t you get in my cupboard and try them? So I tried them and they were really gross.� Jones then conducted her own taste test of other brands and found them all bad tasting. “I bought a lot of them and I didn’t like any of them. I didn’t like the texture, the flavor and some of them the taste was so bad I couldn’t believe that they expect people to put it on their food to taste better.� So Jones concocted her own mix and presented it to the couple. “They said it was fabulous and that I should market it. My brother had a heart attack during this same time so I sent him some and they were crazy about it too so I knew I had something that I needed to pursue to help people enjoy their food again.� Thus, Jones Seasoning Blends LLC was born in 2009. So far, she has two specialty blends. The Original Blend in the red label includes organic dill, sage, pepper, onion, garlic and more while the green-labeled Spicy Southwest Blend contains organic jalapeno, cumin, red pepper and other zesty ingredients. She has plans for additional flavors, like Cajun Barbecue and some popcorn seasoning lines. For those who really love salt and don’t want to let it go completely, Jones suggests using Mock Salt first then adding salt. “You won’t use as much salt. Your palate will end up changing and you won’t want the salt anymore.� By 2010 Jones’ Mock Salt blends were being sold at Marlene’s Natural Foods Market, her first location, and more retail outlets came on board including Whole Foods, Tacoma Fresh and Tacoma Boys, to name a few. Her product has also been picked up by the Healthy Heart Market online store based in Minnesota. “They have the largest heart transplant hospital in the world and I’ve actually had nurses and doctors contact me.

Since 1902, when Goodwill started, its mission has been its primary focus: working to enhance the dignity and quality of life of individuals and families by strengthening communities, eliminating barriers to opportunity, and helping people in need

reach their full potential through learning and the power of work. On Tuesday, May 3, at Goodwill’s annual Ready to Work Luncheon, President and CEO Terry Hayes talked about the future and changes to be seen in the coming year for Goodwill. 2016 is projected to be a very exciting year for change and growth at

Goodwill, according to Hayes. In her speech, she announced exciting expansions of education/job training services in rural areas and enhancements to other job training services. Hayes said to the audience at the luncheon, “Reinvention means improving our job training and career coaching programs and changing the way we are working with companies so that we get more people into quality jobs while companies, in turn, have the skilled workforce they need for the future. Reinvention also means targeting support to those hardest hit in our region. With your help, we are doubling down to serve these populations in greater need.” Programs with a focus on this mission include adding a two-year pilot program funded by the W.K. Kellogg Foundation called Women 2 Work. It helps women of color and other single mothers with children under age 8 get off public assistance. Goodwill has also been selected for one of two grants to help low-income families through United Way’s first

Centers for Strong Families. The Centers will serve families who are living in poverty and those who are living just above the poverty line. The Centers will also provide financial coaching and asset building for adults and their families. With a focus on expanding Goodwill’s programs in rural areas in 2016, Hayes pointed out that Goodwill will be expanding GED/ high school completions for at-risk young adults in Yakima as well as in Longview. Goodwill has established a new partnership with the local school district to provide high school re-engagement to help young adults in that community to earn their GED. As Hayes stated on the expansion of programs in rural areas, “These are our ‘first steps’ in our strategy to further regionalize employment services in the 15 counties we serve.” Additionally, Hayes acknowledged businesses in the area that have partnered with Goodwill to provide jobs in the back to work program. “Goodwill provides a two-week

orientation, followed by the workers receiving a paid on-the-job assessment, then employment at Milgard’s facility in Fife,” Hayes said. “Classes began this week on the inaugural group. Hats off to Milgard Windows for their innovative approach!” Goodwill also has some exciting additions coming throughout the year in changes to the retail experience. During her speech, Hayes stated, “Our improvements in job training must go hand in hand with increasing our revenue production – and our retail business is crucial. So we are refreshing the retail business. Our efforts are aimed to make Goodwill a place where everyone can feel comfortable to shop.” Refreshing efforts on the retail side of Goodwill’s mission include updating stores with a new look, a contemporary design making it easier for all shoppers to find those unique treasures offered at Goodwill. Updated stores to date include: Union Gap, Federal Way, Auburn, 38th Street Tacoma, and Centralia. The Olympia store starts

renovation this month with other stores to follow. In addition to a visual facelift of storefronts, Goodwill will be piloting an online shopping experience. “Soon, you will be able to shop online with us and reserve items that are in our stores,” Hayes said. “We will ship it to you or you can come in to the store and pick up your merchandise.” Goodwill online shopping will launch this year, but the exact date has yet to be announced. Adding to the existing Goodwill four-year store renovation effort, Hayes revealed new retail formats that will kick off with a Graham “small box store” grand opening in June. The idea of a small box store is to provide access to Goodwill merchandise for communities that could not necessarily support a full sized store. The Graham store will be a miniature version of a full sized Goodwill with just a few categories of items not being carried. Keep an eye out for all the exciting changes and additions coming to your community from Goodwill in 2016.

Children’S MuSeuM SuPPortS SPeCiAl needS fAMilieS with ‘PlAy dAyS By Karen Fleur Tofti-Tufarelli Special to Tacoma Weekly

On a recent Tuesday morning at the Tacoma Children’s Museum, children with special needs – as well as their siblings, classmates, parents and other caregivers – played with running water in a playscape. They fed pieces of cloth into Airways, a pneumatic air system that looks like a giant plastic caterpillar, painted faces, climbed through a rope tunnel, watched a story time presentation concurrently presented in American Sign Language, and otherwise had a lot of fun reenacting parts of the classic children’s book “The Very Hungry Caterpillar” by Eric Carle. The experience was part of an innovation by Tacoma Children’s Museum – in partnership with Pierce County Step Ahead, Tacoma Public School speech pathologist Lorraine Maida, and Tacoma School of the Arts students – that seeks to give special needs children their own morning to experience the Museum. The program is free and allows for drop-in attendance, although pay-what-you-will donations to the Museum are invited. The Tuesday morning program, “Tuesday Play Days and Inclusive Play to Learn,” was begun in summer of 2015 said Alyssa Tongue, Learning Experiences Director for the Museum. The Museum recognized that for children and their families experiencing special needs, the usual physical environment and programs of the Museum “were often too populated and busy for children to have a successful experience,” Tongue said. Tongue noted that some of the children served by the program include those who are hearing-impaired, who have cerebral palsy or require physical or occupational therapy, and those who have autism, or challenges with sensory processing and require an environment that is not overly stimulating. Marti Cates, Special Educator for Step Ahead, explained that many children with special needs “can’t go to a family style restaurant . . . and play in the play area on their own and interact with other kids” or be expected to sit still for 30 minutes at a restaurant. Cates has been working in the early education field since she graduated from college 35 years ago. The Tuesday morning programs, she said, provide “quiet little nook(s)” around the museum where children “can calm down with cozy pillows and then reintegrate.” In the recent Tuesday program, one such nook

was located behind a pillar, and featured a cushy round caterpillar “den” lined with colorful pillows. Okumu Foto, the mother of two-year-old twins, learned about Play to Learn through an early intervention program. It enables her children “to calm down a little,” she said, and puts them “in a different environment and a different experience,” helping with social skills and oversensitivity issues. Her children, she said, love “playing in the water, and anything to do with ‘Sesame Street’ – or Elmo.” Parent Amanda Lewis, as her two-yearold daughter emerged from the rope tunnel, said that it is challenging for hearingimpaired children to meet other children who sign, and Play to Learn enables her child to meet others who can communicate with her. Cates related an anecdote about how the Story Alive! portion of the Tuesday programs, offered three times per year, helped one child who she said had never, never been able to sit and attend a story (reading) or look at more than one page (of a book) at a time. “After this event – as soon as he got home – he handed the book to his mom and in his limited language said, ‘eat, eat’ and he sat down with his mom...(and) listened to the entire story and pointed to every single picture in the book. He had never done anything like that before. His mom was

shocked – it was clear that now he understood what the story was about and that this was a story – that’s why we send the books home, so that (children) can repeat over and over again with their parents the experience of the story.” For parents Sherene Sampson, Katherine Oak-Schiller and Roseanne Brauner, the program has enabled them – as well as their children, ages one and a half to four – to meet and coalesce into an informal social group. They met last year when the Play to Learn program was offered at a Salishan location (presently, Play to Learn is offered exclusively at the Museum location). “Were very lucky to have found this program,” Sampson said. “Just getting out and socializing with other moms and having the support of other moms for all of our growing children,” has been an enriching experience, she said, as she watched her daughter play with a maroon-colored butterfly made from a giant coffee filter. “I think all of our kids have benefitted greatly.... Since last year they’ve just bonded – they are in tears if they are apart from each other for more than two days.” Tongue emphasized that though the Museum uses social media, she still finds that “by far our best marketing tool is word of mouth – from a teacher telling a family that they work with, from a parent to another parent” who might ask, “Hey, did you know there’s a Children’s Museum of Tacoma and

they welcome our family right where we’re at?” Tongue also emphasizes that not only are special needs children welcome, but so too are their “typically-developing” siblings – which allows “children experiencing special needs (to) have community with typically developing children – and vice versa.” Because a family must necessarily devote extra attention to a special needs child, Tongue said, the inclusion of all also allows typically-developing siblings to be nurtured as well in a fun environment. The recent Tuesday program hosted more than 60 children, parents, teachers and caregivers. Word about the program is spreading, in part through a consortium of more than 70 Pierce County early learning organizations: “First Five Fundamentals.” Not only parents and their children, but also a host of others participate in the Tuesday play days, including developmental preschools and neighboring school districts. Tongue says that some organizations currently working with families through home visits also schedule outings to the Museum. Peggy Chisholm, a grandmother of 10 attending the Tuesday morning program with her husband, watched as her grandchild and others eagerly fed the clear plastic pneumatic caterpillar with “food” (actually pieces of cloth). She said of the Museum: “I can’t tell you how many times I’ve been here – I think it’s a wonderful place.”

results soon,� Assistant Superintendent Ben Ramirez said, noting that the district will then develop a response plan if test show high lead levels. The district already has a twoyear testing plan that also includes air quality as a way to address all sorts of environmental concerns. Testing water systems at public schools is voluntary in the state. No new cases of high lead levels being found in water have been reported. The state Environmental Protection Agency set the lead-contamination threshold at 20 parts per billion, but Tacoma Schools have set more stringent standard of 15 parts per billion. Initial testing of water that had sat in pipes for more than eight hours at select Tacoma schools showed specific faucets and water fountains at 13 schools had high levels of lead, but follow up tests of running water cleared the systems at Larchmont, Manitou Park and Reed elementary schools. The state recommendation for lead testing calls for this two-step test with the first test providing the “worst case� sample and the second showing results that mirror actual use. Fixtures that tested above the limit were replaced or closed until repairs could be made. Classrooms with closed faucets are being provided bottled water.

Officials are now testing all school facilities and should be completed by the end of the month. Faucets will be replaced based on the results of the initial tests rather than be closed until the results of the follow-up process are available. The new water fixture will then be retested. Tests at all 57 schools, administrative offices and educational facilities are following a five-tier plan with elementary schools taking priority since lead affects younger children more than older students and adults. Once those tests are completed and any replacement of lead-leaching fixtures is complete, schools will be tested at least every three years based on a rotating schedule to safeguard against future contamination. The current rash of water testing started after Tacoma Water conducted tests of its system this spring and found some 1,700 homes and businesses potentially have lead levels above the state limit. The cause of the lead has since been linked to “gooseneck� connections between the main water lines and the individual water customers. Goosenecks were installed in the early to mid 1900s before health officials understood the effects of lead poisoning. Metro Parks is waiting on the results of water tests at its 64 kitchens, water fountains and bathrooms. Officials there have developed a web site to release those results when they are available, which could likely be next week.

Appeals are likely. The utility company began the permitting process last fall, following an environmental review by the City of Tacoma.

Puget Sound Energy wants to build the $275 million liquefied natural fas facility at Alexander Avenue East. The facility would produce 8 million gallons of chilled and condensed natural gas so that the gas could be used as a cleaner-than-diesel fuel for TOTE cargo vessels that travel from Tacoma to Alaska as well as stored in tanks to use during extreme weather conditions. Natural gas is chilled to minus 270 degrees Fahrenheit and condensed by 600 times to become liquefied. The natural gas would be piped in from East Pierce County, requiring about five miles of new gas lines that would run through Fife and

outlining areas. Construction of the facility would support about 250 jobs, while its operations would generate 18 jobs. The tank itself would be a nickel and steel cylinder that would be covered by two feet of concrete. The project is expected to be operational in 2019. Critics of the plant worry about the effects of a fire or explosion at such a large storage facility so close to residential areas and highdensity manufacturing sites on Tacoma’s waterfront. Natural gas is not explosive as a liquid but becomes flammable only when it expands back into a gas. The Tacoma Fire Department has not yet received a permit application. That is expected to come later this year and could take several months of review. The plant would use about 13,000 gallons of water and 15 megawatts of power each day, much lower than the 10.4 million gallons and 400 megawatts the now-dead and unrelated proposed methanol plant that mobilized hundreds of protesters at public meetings earlier this year. But many of those protesters, under the banners of Red Line Tacoma and Save Tacoma Water, have now set their sights on PSE’s proposed facility with similar worries, namely fires, explosions and leaks. Dueling maps by environmental groups and the Puyallup Tribe suggest a “blast zoneâ€? around the planned plant would be about three miles. PSE maps suggest an impact area of about 550 feet, within the fence line of the plant. “A collapse of the tank roof and a fire would be similar to lighting a can of sterno,â€? PSE states about the site. “There will be no explosion, but the entire surface of LNG would burn and would continue to burn until the tank was empty. The tank is designed to withstand the fire and it could be left to burn itself out. ‌ In the unlikely event of a spill in the water, it turns back into natural gas when exposed to air and has no lasting effects on marine life or the water.â€? The tideflats is already home to three oil refineries, the third busiest shipping terminals in the nation and oil train traffic. Fears of an accident at one facility causing a chain reaction involving the others might be farfetched to some people but big worries for others.

“I wanted to help my son, but I don't have the understanding to deal with it,” Stan Naccarato said. “It was a helpless feeling. Parents are supposed to have those answers.” About a month ago, Gettel called a retired military physician whose children she had taught and asked for help. The doctor was working pro bono for a new clinic in Seattle – the Brain Treatment Center (BTC). Founded in 2009, the group uses Magnetic Resonance Therapy to treat areas of the brain that aren’t operating normally. With three branches in California, one in Washington and others in Mexico, Taiwan and Panama, BTC is not FDA approved – but hospitals like Baltimore’s John Hopkins have begun using the treatment. For what? In the beginning, BTC treated Autism, memory loss, depression and anxiety. Though fewer than 2,000 clients have been treated, early medical studies showed the treatment worked and was safe. About three years ago, founder Yi Jin began treating – without charge – veterans with posttraumatic stress disorder. Seattle clinic director Jon Warren is a former BTC client, and said the treatment changed his life. “A lot of my friends who followed my treatment couldn’t believe the change,” Warren said. “You don’t hear vets saying ‘Oh my God, this saved my life!’ But I said it. And I’ve seen a lot of other vets say it since.” When his mother came to him asking him to try BTC, Naccarato had never heard of the clinic or its treatment. One thing did appeal to him, however. “It was treating the physical,” he said. “I was ready for desperate measures, so I took a shot.” The BTC treatment runs five days a week for about 30 minutes a visit, with treatment lasting an average of six weeks. The first day, Naccarato said, his brain was scanned to map it out for doctors, who then gave him his first treatment. “The next morning, I woke up without anxiety,” he said. “It was surreal. For almost two years, I’d been drinking. I'd wake up hung over and the anxiety would be there again, so I'd start drinking to self-medicate. “On the fourth morning of treatment, I woke up and

Moe in a recollection of that period of downtown’s history. Downtown streets were quiet. Businesses were struggling or outright closed. Crime, trash and transients owned the sidewalks. Moe talked to Norma Honeysett about her frustrations and the idea of a downtown farmers market was born. They set a goal and made a plan. “We had no idea what we were doing,” said Moe. “We just knew we were going to do it.” Two previous efforts to form farmers markets in Tacoma had already come and gone, so their efforts to try yet again was met with little support by local groups and even downtown boosters. No group wanted to spend time, talent and money on an effort that had already failed twice. Downtown businesses didn’t want to give up their parking spots. Downtown workers worried would-be market shoppers would face trash and crime rather than fresh produce and flowers. A reception to outline the plan for a farmers market only drew five people, including Moe, Honeysett and their husbands. No one was interested. But the duo didn’t give up. “The real problem was we were dealing with realists rather than dreamers like us,” said Moe. They scraped together enough money – $6,000 – to open anyway. The first market opened on Antique Row, much to the protests and worry of some businesses along that strip of downtown. It was June of 1990. The weather was warm and most vendors sold out within hours. The added foot traffic quickly won over downtown businesses and office workers almost immediately made the Thursday market part of their lunchtime regime. “Tacoma was just finding itself again around 1990, and the idea of the market fit into the new vision of what the city could be,” Honeysett said. “It was the right idea at the right time.” The Broadway market, now entering its 26 season, is the flagship market in Tacoma. But farmers markets can also be found on Sixth Avenue, the Eastside and South Tacoma, which are all managed by the umbrella nonprofit organization Tacoma Farmers Market. Then there is also the Proctor Market, which operates as its own nonprofit. Each market has special events that range from historical walks to live music and specialty vendors to best serve their neighborhood customers.

knew where I was immediately. I felt sharp, rested. It was like waking up from a coma.” Gettel saw a difference in her son immediately. “I was stunned by results, like he was a different person – he was coming alive again,” she said. “It's an ongoing process. The program obviously works, but there’s a lot of work remaining to be done.” She and Stan Naccarato take turns driving their son to treatments. After the first week of treatment, Naccarato telephoned his father, who was driving in Tacoma. “Nick said for the first time, he had hope,” Stan Naccarato said. “I had to pull over. I had a little breakdown.” And Nick? “I’ve been going for about a month, and had one setback that lasted a few days, just like they warned me might happen,” he said. “They’ve recommended a psychologist, someone who can help me sustain the path I’m on.” He knows hope and a return to life is only the beginning of his journey. “I haven't had any panic attacks since the treatments began,” Naccarato said. “I'm sorry for a lot of things, including what I've put my parents through. I was quick to anger, I was so detached from life. “There's a lot of work still to be done, for me. I'm not in a place where I can have fun, yet.” BTC, meanwhile, is trying to find its niche in the medical community. Operating out of Swedish Hospital, its going rate for treatments – other than PTSD – is about $1,000 per session. Who would pay that? Consider this. Evidence on the therapy’s value for autistic patients comes from trials conducted at the University of Louisville with more than 200 higherfunctioning autistic children. About 90 percent of them showed improvement. “There are 22 vets a day dying by suicide because of PTSD,” Naccarato said. “I think the VA ought to approve the treatment. It should be funded.” It’s not, so BTC limits the number of pro bono cases it handles at any one time. “We have a substantial waiting list,” Warren said. If BTC can acquire funding, it may open a Tacoma clinic in the next six-to-12 months. Information about existing locations can be found one the website braintreatmentcenter.com

n a move to add a little spice to the mixed martial arts events at the Emerald Queen Casino, the folks over at Brian Halquist Productions decided to add a new twist to their most recent Super Fight League event. Instead of a fight card filled with individual battles, the night would pit two competing teams against each other. At first blush, I’ll admit that I was a little skeptical. It seemed as though it was just a polishing job on a product that is already regularly packing the

EQC Showroom. While I didn’t think it was going to take away from the evening, I wasn’t quite sure as to what, if anything, it was going to add to an already top-quality event. Once the night began rolling on Saturday, May 7, it was apparent that the decision to put together a team challenge pitting squads representing Seattle and Portland was a bit of a masterstroke. With team points being awarded according to the outcome of each individual bout, the SFL America Team Challenge went down to the wire as either team could take team victory with a win in the last bout of the evening. What began as a landslide for Portland, ended with a 17-13 victory

for Seattle and the fans at the EQC Showroom absolutely loved it. The point system awarded nine points for a knockout, seven points for a submission, five points for a technical knockout, three points for a decision and two points should both fighters come away with a draw. This point system was perfectly planned. Kicking the night off would be two bouts that would serve as an appetizer for the fans, with both matches operating outside of the team point structure. If I had a small complaint for the evening it was probably because of this: Both bouts were manned by fighters representing either the Portland u See SFL / page A13

In just the second week of the season, the action was hot and heavy as teams from the women’s Northwest Premier League (NWPL) and the men’s Evergreen Premier League (EPLWA) looked to assert themselves and gain an early lead in the standings. With winner-takeall format for both leagues, some of these early matches become magnified toward the end of the season, and without a playoff for the second to fourth-place teams to look forward to, there’s almost no room to mess up from week to week. A brand new premier league representing seven teams throughout the state of Washington, the NWPL is already looking as if a great idea has been turned into an excellent decision. The action on the pitch has been solid, and a surprising number of fans have been showing up to the early matches with little to no fanfare. The South Sound FC Shock women travelled to Kent’s French Field on Sunday, May 8 to square off against the Seattle Stars FC. Much like their male club counterparts, it was apparent from the start that these two clubs weren’t going to be crazy about each other. The game was physical and both clubs left everything they had on the field. In the end, it would be a surprising 1-1 draw between the two teams, with South Sound doing everything they could to stay on the attack, despite playing with only 10 players throughout the second half. South Sound took an early lead when midfielder Jamie Hoffman gathered in a sharp pass from midfielder Emily Hanna and planted the ball into the back of the net. The Shock led 1-0 just 12 minutes into the game. Seattle would turn back several scoring opportunities by the Shock throughout the remainder of the first half, biding their time and looking for an opening that finally came with seconds left before the half. Seattle’s Angela Celedon found herself in the

athletes earned All-NWC baseball honors, the conference announced on Tuesday. Four more Loggers earned All-NWC honors. Starting pitcher Collin Maier was named to the All-NWC Second Team for the second year in-a-row, where he was joined by senior catcher Nick Funyak and senior outfielder Nickolas Alarcio. Sophomore relief pitcher David Follett earned All-NWC Honorable Mention. Zerio ranks third in the NWC with a .411 batting average, and he has the fifth-best stolen base total with 15. The Pleasanton, California native is six hits shy of tying head coach Jeff Halstead's program record for hits in a single season. He's currently tied for seventh in career hits with 157. Maier ranks second in the NWC with 7.69 strikeouts per game. Among conference pitchers who have thrown at least 60 innings this season, Maier has allowed the second-fewest hits (54 hits in 62.0 innings). On March 5, Maier struck out 10 batters through eight shutout innings, and he allowed just five hits and two walks. The Billings, Montana, native became the first Logger in exactly five years to strikeout at lest 10 batters in a game (Matt Robinson whiffed 12 batters against Whitman on March 5, 2011). In turn, Maier was named NWC Pitcher of the Week. Funyak leads the Loggers with 26 RBI, and his .392 on-base percentage is third on the team. He has 11 multihit games this spring, including four three-hit games. Alarcio leads Puget Sound with a .453 on-base percentage, which is also tied for sixth in the NWC. His .377 batting average is seventh in the league, and trails only Zerio on the Logger squad. He leads Puget Sound with 11 doubles and a .543 slugging percentage. Alarcio is also tied for the team lead with four home runs. Follett has made 12 appearances this season, 11 of which were out of the 'pen. The sophomore hasn't allowed a single earned run through 14.1 innings against NWC opponents this season. Overall, he has yielded just 19 hits through 25.2 innings, along with a 3.16 ERA.



Following a season where the Lutes dominated the Division III West Region, the Pacific Lutheran women's rowing team made program history today earning the first team bid to the NCAA Championship Regatta in program history. Both the varsity eight-plus and second varsity eight-plus boats will race May 27 and 28 in Sacrament, Calif. "We are thrilled to have been selected as a team," said Andy Foltz, head coach. "We always stress the team over one particular boat and this is a great representation of the team's overall efforts throughout the year. Every single member of this squad, from the 3V to the 1V earned this honor." The Lutes captured their first Northwest Conference Championships in April, only the second time the event has been held, and return to the NCAA Championships after a 14-year drought. In 2002, the Lutes sent a varsity eight-plus and second varsity eight-plus boat, but did not receive the team bid. "Everything that us seniors have worked for during these four years, all the transitions and the coaching changes, it all finally adds up," said senior Jessica Hunter. "All the mornings of waking up, the cold weather and just being miserable at times (giggled), it all comes to down to this moment. We can enjoy each other and, instead of going to a traditional graduation, we get to have this moment as a team. It means a lot to end our college experience with nationals." "We are excited to return to Sacramento," added Foltz. "It is like a second home to us and we love racing on that lake. We still have goals to strive for, as all season our goal has been to not just make the NCAAs, but to place at the regatta."


Pacific Lutheran's men's basketball team earned their second consecutive Pierce County Volunteer of the Year Award as presented by Lakewood Recreation Center Leader Meredith Smith. Following the award presentation, the team hosted its tenth annual basketball clinic. "Meredith does such a great job of organizing the Spring Leagues for these young people," said Steve Dickerson, PLU head coach. "This clinic is an opportunity to help her with the game that we love. Over 175 girls and boys from the community received instruction in the arts of passing, dribbling, shooting, ballhandling, rebounding and defending from members of the Lutes team. Current Lutes Joshua Baird, Jared Christy, Dylan DeWalt, Markus Mitchell Glenn, Kasey Johnson, Brandon Lester, Kyle Sawtell, Zac Webb and Garth West all participated in the clinic. "It was a wonderful feeling when we can brighten a kid's day with a little basketball," said West.

The Tacoma Rainiers (19-13) notched a 7-6 extrainnings victory in their series opener against the Fresno Grizzlies (13-18) on Tuesday, May 10 at Chukchansi Park in Fresno. Left f ielder Dario Pizzano led the Tacoma offense, finishing the night 3-for-3 with two runs scored, one RBI, and one walk. Center fielder Boog Powell, hitting leadoff, notched just one hit but scored once and drove in three RBI. First baseman Efren Navarro (2 for 5), third baseman Ed Lucas (2 for 4), and second baseman Tyler Smith (2 for 4) all added multi-hit efforts. Starting pitcher Cody Martin worked 6.0 innings for the Rainiers, allowing three runs on six hits with two walks and a season-high nine strikeouts. The Rainiers grabbed a 3-0 lead with a run in the third and two runs in the fourth. Navarro notched an RBI single to give the Rainiers their first run of the game, while an RBI single from Pizzano and a run-scoring groundout from Powell extended the lead. Grizzlies catcher Tyler Heineman notched his first home run of the season, a solo shot in the bottom of the fifth, the get Fresno on the scoreboard and cut Tacoma’s lead to 3-1. Powell doubled to open the Rainiers half of the seventh, moved to third on a sacrifice bunt, and scored on an RBI single from Navarro to push the lead to 4-1. Fresno pushed across four runs in the bottom of the seventh inning, highlighted by a two-run home run from Nolan Fontana, to take their first lead of the game at 5-4. The Rainiers grabbed the lead back in the top of the eighth inning. Pizzano on third and Smith on second base, a wild pitch from Fresno’s James Hoyt scored Pizzano for the tying run. Powell followed with a hit to Grizzlies first baseman Jon Singleton, who threw home but could not get out Smith who slid into home for the go-ahead run at 6-5. Andrew Aplin popped up to open the bottom of the ninth, but a drop on the catch by Navarro put Aplin on second base. He moved to third on a fly out to left field and came in to tie the game at 6-6 on a single from Fontana, sending the game to extras. The Rainiers only needed one extra frame to grab their 19th win of the season. Lucas was hit by a pitch from Jandel Gustave with one out, advanced to third on a single from Robertson, and was brought in for the winning-run on a sacrifice fly from Powell. Blake Parker worked a perfect tenth inning to earn his team-leading sixth save of the year. Tacoma returns to Cheney Stadium on Saturday, May 14 for a four game series against the Omaha Storm Chasers. May 14 and May 15 are special “Throwback Cap” games at Cheney.

clear with a one-on-one opportunity at the South Sound goal. In a desperate, mad dash, South Sound defender Delaney Smith caught Celedon from behind and sent the small striker hard to the French Field turf. The referee immediately pulled out a red card and Smith would be sent off the field for the rest of the game, and South Sound would have to continue one player short for the entire second half. Celedon would hammer her penalty kick into the back of the net and the game would head into halftime deadlocked at 1-1. While they had an advantage in numbers, Seattle was unable to get much pressure on the South Sound goal in the second half. Meanwhile, the Shock would see several opportunities sail to the left or the right of the goal posts, and would ultimately have to settle for a well-fought tie and a point in the NWPL standings. The South Sound women (1-0-1) return home for a huge match on Sunday, May 15 at Harry Lang Stadium in Lakewood at 1 p.m. The Shock will host the Spokane Shadow who enter the game 2-0-0 and have outscored their first two opponents by a combined score of 14-2. On Saturday, May 7, the Shadow dismantled the Twin City Union by a score of 9-0. That’s not a misprint. South Sound shutout Twin City the previous weekend by a score of 2-0. A Shock victory would catapult South Sound into first place in the NWPL. The second game of the South Sound doubleheader pitted the Shock men versus the Seattle men and much like the women’s match before, it was a physical affair. The Shock were awarded a penalty kick early in the match and South Sound veteran J.J. Schmeck made Seattle pay with a perfect shot into the goal for a 1-0 lead just 10 minutes into the contest. Seattle’s Tyler Bjork, the all-time goal scoring leader in the EPLWA got the equalizer in the 37th minute when he caught the South Sound defense pushing up too far and slipped behind, taking in a long pass and delivering it into the goal. The teams would enter halftime tied at 1-1. South Sound controlled much of the flow of the game throughout the second half, peppering the Seattle goal with several opportunities. The Shock would finally hit pay dirt in the 62th minute as Pacific Lutheran star Eddie Na slid into the box and got just enough foot on the ball to send it into the goal with several defenders surrounding him. South Sound would turn away every Seattle chance for the remainder of the game for a welldeserved 2-1 victory. The Shock men (1-1-0) will host a huge weekend on Saturday, May 14 and Sunday, May 15. On Saturday, South Sound will welcome Wenatchee FC (1-1-0) to Harry Lang Stadium for a 3 p.m. first kick. On Sunday, the two-time defending EPLWA Spokane Shadow will visit Harry Lang Stadium at 4 p.m. Spokane (0-1-1) will be desperate and dangerous as they look to get back into the league race.

WE'RE NOT LION. Despite winning the 4A Narrows League with a 13-1-1 record, the Bellarmine Lions will

have to become road warriors in the state tournament if they want to play for a state championship at Sparks Stadium in Puyallup. By Justin Gimse jgimse@tacomaweekly.com

As the high school athletic season enters the final phase, we’ll take a quick look at which area teams are still alive, and who looks like they could make a little noise at the state tournament level. It’s been an exciting year for several Tacoma-area teams, with a few trophies, as well as some heartache to show for it in the end. First out of the gates, we’ll look at the soccer picture, and before we get into any teams, we need to take a look at a problem that has occurred in the postseason with some other sports, namely basketball, and at least shine some light upon some scheduling that leaves this writer shaking his head in disgust, yet again. The Bellarmine Lions have fielded one of the finest 4A boys’ soccer teams in the state of Washington this season. Not only did they repeat as 4A Narrows League champions, they put together an impressive 13-1-1 season along the way. One would naturally expect Bellarmine to be rewarded for their regular season success with a proper seeding into the postseason. Of course, with the jaw-dropping early matchups that we recently witnessed at several state basketball tournaments, there’s no wonder that the powers-that-be have put together such

an unrewarding seeding system for the district and state 4A soccer tournaments. It’s actually so bad that it seems like more of a punishment than anything resembling a “congratulations on a fine season.” Despite winning the 4A Narrows, Bellarmine will not challenge for the district crown. Instead of having an actual tournament between the winners of the three divisions of the South Puget Sound League and the champion of the Narrows, the seeds for each individual champion were already set in stone. Other leagues have no problem putting together a true district championship bracket for league champions, but that’s not happening at the highest level of high school soccer around here. No matter who won the Narrows, that team was going to play in the third/fourth place game at districts. You are not reading this wrong. Bellarmine with their incredible 13-1-1 record will face either Mt. Rainier (9-6-2) or Curtis (11-3-2) on May 14 at Mt. Tahoma Stadium at 1 p.m. The winner of the match will enter the 4A state tournament as the third seed and will have to travel to play most-likely Skyline (12-1-2) or Mt. Si (12-3-2), who are two state powerhouses. The loser of the third/fourth place game will have to pack even bigger bags as they travel to Spokane to face prob-

ably the likes of Lewis and Clark (15-3) or Mead (9-8). Bellarmine and Curtis are two of the best 4A soccer teams in the state and they’re getting a raw deal. On the 3A Narrows side, the Wilson Rams (9-6-0) finished third in the league and will face Prairie (10-5-1) on Thursday, May 12 at Sparks Stadium at 8 p.m. in a loser-out district game. The winner will go on to face either the champion of the 3A SPSL, Auburn Riverside (13-3-0), or Kennedy Catholic (11-4-2) on Saturday, May 14 at Highline Memorial Stadium at 2 p.m. The winner will earn the fourth seed to state, while the loser’s season will end. The Wilson boys’ baseball team (13-9) is still alive in district play and will face Sumner on Wednesday, May 11, shortly after the Tacoma Weekly goes to press with our current issue. Should the Rams win, they will play at Heidelberg Field on Saturday, May 14 at 1 p.m. in a loser-out game. A victory would put the Rams into the fifth/sixth seed district game at 4 p.m. Bellarmine (10-9) is still alive in the 4A Narrows girls’ softball picture, as is Wilson (7-10) and Foss (4-12) in the 3A Narrows. All three teams must advance out of their own league tournaments to earn a berth into their respective district tournaments

or Seattle team, and their outcomes should have been included in the overall tally. Of course, Team Seattle would have had 10 points in the bag after the two openers and that may have influenced my feelings on the matter once Team Portland zipped out to an early, sizeable lead. The first bout of the night would match two fighters making their professional debuts. Port Orchard’s Chris Stone squared off against Portland’s Cody Hammond, and both fighters wasted no time getting down to business. It was obvious from the get-go that Stone had some serious wrestling experience as he repeatedly took Hammond to the mat. The two fighters received a huge ovation after the torrid pace of the first round. Stone would go for several submission holds throughout the first three rounds but was unable to really get a lock on any one of his attempts. Hammond fought off Stone each time, often bringing the fight back to its feet. In the end, Hammond’s guard finally slipped and Stone was able to slap a Rear Naked Choke hold on him at the 2:17 mark of the third round for the victory. A painful beginning kicked off the second bout as Tenino’s Anthony Zender accidently blasted a kick straight into the groin of Portland’s Sean Gee. From the looks of it, I was actually wondering if the fight was going to continue as Gee didn’t seem exactly jazzed about starting the fight back up. When he finally regained himself, Gee came out swinging and landed some solid blows, only to get taken to the mat by Zender, who tried unsuccessfully for a handful of submission moves in their three-rounder. Gee started the third round with a few well-placed bombs to Zender’s face and then seemed to lose the rest of his steam. Zender took the action back to the mat for the remainder of the final round, with Gee (1-2-0) attempting a last-second surge that went nowhere. Zender (4-8-0) took the

victory via unanimous decision. Now that it was time for the actual team point competition to begin, it wasn’t going to go Team Seattle’s way early. Benny Vinson from Team Portland squared off against Zach Skinner (10-8-0) from Team Seattle, and it looked like it would be a great matchup between two veterans. However, Vinson commanded the action early and put a good pounding on Skinner with some strong kicks and knees to the body that Skinner was unable to find an answer for. By the middle of the second round, Skinner (10-9-0) was a bloody mess as Vinson (7-3-1) rained down blows on him on the ground and up against the cage. The fight was stopped at the 2:31 mark of the second round, and maybe should have been stopped a few punches sooner, but it was a tough call. Team Portland now had a 5-0 lead. Up next would be a contest at 135-pounds between Journey Newson from Team Portland and Shane Friesz from Team Seattle. It was a well-paced fight at the start, with both fighters landing some shots. Newson took a finger to the eye, that paused the bout and also caused a nasty gash that would surprisingly not become an issue for

the remainder of the fight. It was an evenly-matched first round, followed by two strong performances by Newson to close out the fight. Friesz (1-1-0) had a knee lock on Newson for nearly half of the final round, but was unable to really wrench it to where he needed it for a submission. Even though he won the fight via unanimous decision, Newson (3-0-0) would spend a considerable amount of time on the canvas after the fight holding his knee, and later hobbled out of the cage. Team Portland now led 8-0. The third team fight would pit a local legend against a relative newcomer. At 41 years old, Cindy Hales returned to the cage in front of an excited and adoring home crowd. While her heart was obviously in the fight, the outcome wasn’t going to go so well for the hometown girl. Team Portland’s Liz Tracy (2-1-0) bull rushed Hales for their two rounds, landing some big blows and taking the veteran to the canvas where she connected with some of her biggest shots. It proved to be too much for Hales and the referee finally stopped the fight at the 4:11 mark of the second round. The EQC crowd gave Hales (2-2-0) a loving ovation following the match.

now owned a 13-0 lead following the TKO. The sixth fight of the night featured what would prove to be my new favorite local fighter. Team Portland’s Chris Evans would face off against Team Seattle’s Joey “Mamma’s Boy” Pierotti in a 170pound match. Sporting a moustache that would make Magnum P.I. tip his Detroit Tiger cap, Pierotti didn’t show up to mess around as he dominated the action from the opening bell. In the end, it was too much and too quick for Evans (1-2-0) as the referee stopped the fight at the 2:34 mark of the first round with Pierotti (2-0-0) landing shot after shot. Following the win, “Mamma’s Boy” donned a t-shirt that read “I love my Mom” and frankly, the crowd seemed to love this

guy too. Team Seattle was now on the board trailing Portland 13-5. Without much wriggle room, Team Seattle entered the second-to-last fight still with a chance for victory, but they were going to need some big points. Scoring the only knockout of the night, Team Seattle’s Rafael Brewster came through in the clutch with a decisive first-round knockout at the 2:24 mark. Brewster (2-0-0) delivered a combination of knees and punches to the face of Team Portland’s Jose McKay Rodriguez (0-1-0) that brought the house to its feet and suddenly gave Team Seattle an unlikely one-point lead at 14-13. The main event would pit Team Portland’s Bryan Nuro against SFL America Lightweight Champion Justin Harrington. A decision

by either fighter would win the team challenge and several times in the five-rounder, it looked as though it wasn’t going to make it that far as Harrington delivered huge shots and Nuro came very close to locking down several submission holds. The fight would go the distance and it went Harrington’s (9-2-0) way with a unanimous decision and Team Seattle took the team challenge victory 17-13. To be honest, I thought the fight was closer to being a draw, and if it had been in Portland, could have easily gone Nuro’s (4-1-0) way, but it’s a hard thing to take a champions belt with a close decision. It was one of the best fights I have seen in a long time and I can’t wait for a rematch between these two fighters, because it needs to happen.

PUYALLUP TRIBAL IMPACT Supporting the Economic Growth of Our Community


Federal, regional, state and local leaders gathered with the Puyallup Tribal Council on April 7, 2015 to officially cut the ribbon on the Tribe’s new state-of-the-art Salish Cancer Center (SCC). Joining in on the event were (back row from left): Fife Mayor Tim Curtis; former Congressman Norm Dicks and Puyallup Tribal Council Vice-Chairman Larry LaPointe; (front row from left) Puyallup Tribal Council Members Marguerite Edwards and Sylvia Miller; Puyallup Vice-Chairwoman Roleen Hargrove; Senator Maria Cantwell; Puyallup Chairman Bill Sterud; Gov. Jay Inslee; Lieutenant Governor Brad Owen; Congressman Denny Heck; and Puyallup Tribal Council Members David Bean and Tim Reynon. Learn more about the cancer center on pg. 3.

The most urban of Native American tribes, the Puyallup Tribe of Indians continues to be a critical component of the South Sound economy. As Pierce County’s sixth largest employer, a donor to a broad range of charitable organizations, and a major funder of housing, roads, education and environmental projects, the Puyallup Tribe stands as a model for taking care of not only its own membership, but sharing its wealth

among the broader community as well. The Puyallup Tribe is one of the largest employers in Pierce County. With a payroll of more than 3,100 people that work in the Tribe’s businesses, government, economic development corporation, school, and health and housing authorities – approximately 70 percent of whom are non-Native – employees enjoy competitive wages and benefits.

In 2015 the Tribe spent over $491 million. This spending supports communities by providing good wages and generous benefits to individuals, and through purchases of goods and services from local suppliers, vendors, contractors, construction companies and more. From sponsoring local charities, non-profit organizations, social welfare projects and events that may otherwise

suffer or cease to exist, to protecting the environment, funding crime prevention, city improvement projects and healthcare, the Tribe maintains its commitment to honoring its destiny as “the generous people,” the meaning of the Tribe’s very name “Puyallup.” In the following pages, you’ll read more about what a valuable community partner the Puyallup Tribe of Indians is to the region and the state.

STOGIE’S CIGAR AND SPORTS LOUNGE Bringing the finer things in life to the South Sound

A formal grand opening event will be coming soon to Stogie’s, which is enjoying a bustling business already.

The Puyallup Tribe of Indians upped the ante in 2015 on options for going out the town with the opening of Stogie’s Cigar and Sports Lounge at 5402 Pacific Hwy., just off Interstate 5 at Exit 137 in Fife. Sept. 12 was the “soft opening” day and business has been booming ever since. A formal grand opening will be coming in 2016. The Puyallup Tribal Council established Stogie’s as an economic diversification and revenue source as well as enhanced entertainment, as it sits in proximity to the Emerald Queen Casino. Rather than build new from the ground up, the Tribe converted a former Mitzel’s restaurant into the high-end Stogie’s that features a décor of the utmost in taste and comfort, a full-service bar stocked with the finest spirits and a selection of nearly 30 top cigar brands, along with personal humidified lockers available to customers. Stogie’s hosted two major cigar events and its three tobacconists have Master Tobacconist License from the “Perdomo Factory” in Nicaragua.

The friendly staff at Stogie’s is at your service to make your experience there one that will have you coming back again and again.

Stogie’s is also becoming the go-to place to watch sports on any of the 30 large-screen TVs placed throughout the establishment. During Seahawks season, weekly events, like NFL Football Sundays, make for a fun way for fans to gather and cheer on the team. Sports fans also enjoy NBA nights, baseball starting in March and Seattle Sounders soccer matches. This summer, the outdoor area will host barbeques and live music in keeping with the Stogie’s ambience. The sophisticated lunch and dinner menus offer a delicious selection of appetizers and salads. With Stogie’s open to the public for just over four months now, the menus are being revised to focus more on the things that customers like the most. Everything is fresh and locally sourced, with salmon being a specialty. Guests love the Sunday Buffet Style Brunch and Taco Tuesdays, and ideas are being formulated to perhaps add a Military/Martini Monday and Service Industry Night on Sunday/Monday, as a lot of people in the service industry are off on Sundays and

Mondays and look for good bars where they can be waited on for a change. Plus, Stogie’s is one of the few places around anymore where smokers can sit back, relax and enjoy imbibing indoors rather than out on the sidewalk. A highlight of Stogie’s is that it attracts a clientele that reflects the diversity of the area. “Cigar culture is a very close and tightly knit culture,” says general manager Vicki Heckman. “It doesn’t matter what walk of life you’re in or who you are. If you’re a millionaire or lawyer, cop or construction worker, they’ve all got cigars in common.” Stogie’s is also showing itself to be a preferred meeting place to gather and network for local businessmen and women. If you want to take a business client to an upscale place in the South Sound, Stogie’s is it. With a work force of 26 employees, about half of whom are Native American, Stogie’s provides jobs for those who call the South Sound home as well as place where area residents can leave their hectic schedules in the rearview mirror.

NATIVE AMERICANS DO PAY TAXES 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 non-Indians), 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 $47 million in FY 2015. 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 $20 million in FY 2015. 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 $11 million to the State of Washington, and over $300,000 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 2015, the Puyallup Tribe paid over $575,000 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 2015 was approximately $80 million.

Totally Pauly


MTV icon headed to Tacoma this weekend


‘THE WEASEL.’ Pauly Shore – known for his days on MTV and movies like “Encino Man” and “Bio-Dome” – brings his standup to Tacoma Comedy Club this weekend.

By Ernest A. Jasmin ejasmin@tacomaweekly.com


auly Shore, a.k.a. The Weasel, was among the most ubiquitous TV and film stars of the late ’80s and ’90s, between his breakout gig as MTV's man on the street, on “Totally Pauly,” a string of goofy, cult comedies – “Encino Man,” “Bio-Dome,” “In the Army Now” – and his short-lived show on Fox, called simply “Pauly.” These days, fans can catch his off-thewall brand of standup comedy at places like Tacoma Comedy Club where he'll headline two big sets on Sunday, May 15. In the days leading up to the shows, we caught up with The Weaz to find out what life on the road is like now versus back in the day. TACOMA WEEKLY: We interviewed Bobcat a few months ago; and I imagine you two have a similar thing you have to deal with, where people expect you to step out of a time capsule. Is that something you struggle to break away from? SHORE: Well, of course. You work hard to come up with your own thing, and then you work hard to get away from your own thing. Then you want to get back to it. It’s a constant give and take. But I'd rather be in my position, being known for something, as opposed to trying to be known for something and no one knows who you are. I go onstage and I feel the audience. I feel what they want. If I feel like they want some old (stuff), I give it to 'em. If I feel like they're just chillin' then I don't have to do it. You know what I mean? The audience kind of dictates how much Weasel we do. TW: What is it like on the road for you

now versus 25 years ago? What do you miss from back then? SHORE: It has nothing to do with the road; it has to do with who I am. I'm just not who I was 25 years ago, good or bad. You get older, your interests change. You're not into partying as much. You're more into taking care of yourself. When you're younger, you can just kind of drink (through) your hangovers. Now hangovers last like a month. It's just normal evolution you go through, and that's a lot of the stuff I talk about. A lot of my audience is 35, 40, 50 years old so they remember me from that era, from those party times; but now they're all kind of married up and kind of crusty with bad backs, and (they're) taking their protein shakes and trying to exercise and (stuff.) TW: Taking their Lisinopril. SHORE: Yeah, exactly. TW: But at the same time, based on the documentary from a couple of years ago (“Pauly Shore Stands Alone”), you still have your occasional crazy moment, with groupies bitin' you on the butt. SHORE: Yeah, that is a hundred percent true. You get that. When you tour, you don't know who you're gonna get. You don't know who's gonna be in the audience. TW: If we can rewind a few years, I'm kind of curious about your mindset when you made “Pauly Shore is Dead” (released in 2003). It's mostly self-deprecating humor, but there's a darkness to that film, too. SHORE: It was kind of what I was going through at the time. I had my run, had gotten rid of my agents and my managers. The reason why I did that was 'cause I just kind of wanted to be alone. Then once I did that, it was kind of like “now what?” I

wasn't coming out in a movie every year, so people are like, “What happened?” So I wanted to do a make believe story about what happened to me, but a lot of it kind of comes from the truth, as well; not being the hot person any more, and kind of making fun of that, because I was so big. (Stuff) was so big. You either have to talk about it or ignore it, and I chose to talk about it. TW: How's mom doing? SHORE: It's the same. Parkinson's, it's a slow death. It's like slow deterioration. It is what it is. She's 85, and she's had it for 15 years, and it's a nightmare. It's a (freaking) nightmare. TW: I can only imagine. Are you doing anything special for Mother's Day this weekend? SHORE: Aw, just spending a little time with her. TW: With what she and your dad did (Mitzi Shore founded the legendary Comedy Store in Los Angeles, and Sammy Shore was also a comedian) you wound up with people like Sam Kinnison babysitting you. It just boggles the mind to even think about that. SHORE: My mom was busy with the club. My dad – and they were divorced – he was on the road. So my mom gave me the comedians, and the comedians were the ones that kind of took care of me in the ’70s and the ’80s. TW: Are there any that especially stood out? Did they give you advice? SHORE: They told me how to roll a joint, pretty much. How to hold the bong, and how to drink the beer. TW: Alright, those skills can come in handy, but … SHORE: I had kind of a weird upbringing, but there was a lot of love. She just

gave me the comedians, and there was just tons of love through the comedians, you know. TW: In interviews you say you don't so much have a formalized set as much as you riff and feel the room out. What should fans here expect? SHORE: Well, it's Pauly Shore, No. 1. So if you're a fan of my films and a fan of my style of comedy, why not come out to my show? I'm flying all the way up there, spending the money, and coming up there and doing a show. So if you're a fan, might as well see it. And if you're not a fan, become a fan and check it out. I mean, what else is there to do up there, right? TW: Do you have anything coming up in the next few months you want to tell your fans about? SHORE: I have a lot of stuff, but I don't like to talk about it until I have a date for it to come out. So if people just follow me on Twitter and Snapchat; my Snapchat is PaulyMShore, and my Twitter is just @ PaulyShore. So that's where people can see where I'm at all the time, especially my Snapchat. I just snapchatted with Jack Black. So if you go to my story today, you can see me with Jack Black.

Bill Colby’s 60s art inaugurates ‘Matter: Tacoma Made Modern’

CULTURE CORNER A GUIDE TO TACOMA'S CULTURAL EVENTS This Week’s Events 50th Anniversary Birthday of the Lakewood Playhouse and Celebrity Roast of Managing Artistic Director John Munn, Upon the Occasion of his 50th Birthday Year May 14, 7 p.m. 5729 Lakewood Towne Center Blvd., Lakewood Info: www.lakewoodplayhouse.org


"Ceremonial Bird" 1962, drypoint etching by Bill Colby. By Dave R. Davison dave@tacomaweekly.com

Lisa Kinoshita’s Moss + Mineral (art gallery/design boutique/jewelry shop/ nursery) has merged, morphed and moved. This month, Kinoshita joined forces with several fellow designers: Steve Lawler, Jeff Libby and Adrienne Wicks. The group is now operating in a larger space at 821 Pacific Ave. The new outfit is going under the moniker of “Matter: Tacoma Made Modern.” As with Moss + Mineral, “Matter” will host shows of artwork curated by Kinoshita, who likes to display work that harmonize with the midcentury vibe of the establishment. The first artist to be shown in the new space is Bill Colby, the master printmaker who, at age 89, continues to spend time in his studio every day. “If I’m not down here [in the studio],” says Colby, “I’m in the yard.” Colby was an art professor at University of Puget Sound where he helped to build up that school’s print department. His work is in the permanent collections of the Library of Congress, Tacoma Art Museum, Seattle Art Museum, the Henry Art Gallery, U.S. Embassies in Poland and Hungary and in public and private collections all over the world. Now in retirement, Colby devotes his time to his painting, collages and to the colorful woodcuts for which he is best known. This beautiful little show – consisting of a dozen works – is called “Bill Colby: The Sixties” and features some of the artist’s work from the early to mid 1960s. There are several charming watercolors of the Tacoma tideflats depicting industrial buildings broken down into geometric forms. His silkscreen prints blend the muted tones

of the Northwest School artists with a manner of depiction that shows the influence of abstract expressionism. In “Spring Snow,” a snow-laden tree is broken down into a rhythmic abstraction. “Television Trance,” another silkscreen, is done in mottled orange-browns and dull-greens and shows strange, big-eyed figures lit up by the glow of a TV set. The most remarkable part of the show is the several etchings of dead birds. These are spare, black and white images of a character not often encountered in much of Colby’s later work. Colby’s dead birds, lying on their backs with legs jutting upward, are both poignant and poetic. They are small masterpieces of composition, done with a mix of incisive lines and more softly blended areas. One called “Ceremonial Bird” is more stylized, showing the influence of Salish artistic style exerting its influence upon the young art professor recently arrived from Kansas. Depictions of dead birds have deep roots in Western art. Dead game birds have often been used in still life paintings of the successful hunt. Albert Pinkham Ryder also did a famous painting of a dead bird. A scene of children burying a dead bird is a symbol of the loss of innocence that comes with the first realization of mortality. As a show space devoted to design, “Matter” is a hearty blend of midcentury modern line and form with a rustic patina. Kinoshita’s unusual botanicals are combined with the great pottery and knick-knacks in which she traffics. Things are arranged here and there into little vignettes. “Matter” is envisioned as a venue to host future events such as expert talks, readings and live performance, all free to the public. Colby’s art will be on display through June 11. For further information visit mattertacoma.com.

NEW MUSES BRING IBSEN’S ‘GHOSTS’ TO LIFE By Dave R. Davison dave@tacomaweekly.com

On May 5, Tacoma’s New Muses Theatre Company opened its production of Henrik Ibsen’s classic play, “Ghosts.” The play is now running in an alternating schedule with Ibsen’s “A Doll’s House.” This is a chance for Tacoma audiences to see live stagings of two of the greatest plays by one of the giants of theater. The Norwegian playwright Ibsen is credited with bringing “realism” to the stage, thus bringing modern theater into being. While not directly related, “A Doll’s House” and “Ghosts” both portray individuals trying to navigate the moral rules and social mores of status-conscious middle class society. Ibsen said that after Nora (the self-emancipated protagonist of “A Doll’s House), he had to create Mrs. Alving, the central character of “Ghosts.” We encounter Mrs. Alving as a middle-aged widow with a grown son. She is a woman that had once tried to flee a bad marriage to an alcoholic, philandering man but was persuaded – by Pastor Manders – that it was her duty to go back to her husband.


HAUNTING. Mrs Alving (played by Carrie Schnelker) has a moment of discussion with her son Oswald (played by Niclas Olson) in New Muses production of Ibsen's "Ghosts"

“Ghosts” is, thus, a portrait of a woman that played by the rules of morality and did what was considered to be correct and good in the eyes of society. The result was that Mrs. Alving was condemned to unhappi-

ness. She had to devote the rest of her life building an edifice of falsehoods about her husband and her marriage, largely to protect her son from the truth. A self-confessed coward, Mrs. Alving was never able to escape

and must continue to maintain her house as a web of lies long after her flawed husband has died. We encounter the Alving family on the eve of the dedication of an orphanage that Mrs.

Alving and Pastor Manders are about to dedicate in memory of the deceased Mr. Alving. All of the falsehoods are about to come home to roost. The New Muses production features a rock solid cast beginning with Carrie Schnelker’s riveting performance as Mrs. Alving. Schnelker commands the stage with a stately presence. She is at times imperious and at times vulnerable. Manders is played by John Kelleher, a dynamic actor who breaths life into the role of a man of the cloth who, while earnest, is too beholden to rules of propriety, is a little too willing to take others at their word, and is somewhat overly concerned about his public reputation. New Muses founder and managing artistic director Niclas Olson is the only actor working in both “A Doll’s House” and “Ghosts.” In the latter he plays Oswald, an artist and the son of the Alvings. Oswald has returned from the sunny parts of Europe to wet and dreary Norway where he is in the midst of a malaise. Mrs. Alving has kept Oswald away from the family in order to protect him from his father’s influence. Tragically, u See GHOSTS / page B5

HEART ATTACK. Seattle quartet Red Heart Alarm includes Donovan Pfeifer, Scotty Summers, Jared Monschein and Corey Allred. By Ernest A. Jasmin ejasmin@tacomaweekly.com

Seattle’s Red Heart Alarm is headed to Jazzbones where the quartet will make its first Tacoma appearance with Everson Pines on Friday, May 13. Here’s a breakdown of the Americana band that Seattle alt-weekly The Stranger once likened to “Soundgarden meets Willie Nelson.” Personnel: Corey Allred (guitar, vocals), Jared Monschein (guitar, vocals), Scotty Summers (bass), Donovan Pfeifer (drums) Discography: “Moonshine” (2010), “Hammer Anvil Stirrup” (2014), which fans can preview and download at www.redheartalarm.com. Origins: The core duo of Red Heart Alarm is Allred and Monschein, who have known each other for more than two decades. “We were in separate bands in the ‘90s, and we knew each other, but we never really played together,” Allred recalled. “Then we were playing in my back

t Ghosts From page B4 however, Oswald proves to be his father’s son. Two other complex characters round out the cast. Monica Lorin plays the vivacious, bright and dutiful maidservant, Regina. Engstrand, the crippled (both physically and spiritually) carpenter is played by Eric Cuestas-Thompson. Where “A Doll’s House” ended with a sense of liberation and the hope of fresh beginnings, “Ghosts” is haunted by an air of doom. At one point in the play Mrs. Alving laments that dead ideas and useless beliefs are passed from one generation to the next long after

yard and we were singing a song. I think it was ‘Warning,’ one of the songs from our first album. We liked the way our voices worked together. The styles are very contrasting but complimenting at the same time.” Red Heart Alarm emerged from the ashes of their previous alt-country outfit, the Pour Louders, which broke up in 2008. “It was solely acoustic – no drummer,” Monschein said. “So it was a big change for us to go from that to doing this, which is all electric.” What’s in a name? Allred said his ex-girlfriend, a nurse, came up with the band’s moniker. “They had a code on the cardiac floor that was called the Red Heart Alarm. It was a silent alarm that lets people know when someone is waiting for a transplant or ... is flat-lining. It was her idea, and I stole it ‘cause she’s not in a band. She was a little pissed off at first, but she got over it quick.”

Working with a legend: The quartet recorded “Hammer Anvil Spirit” with Jack Endino, the Seattle producer known for manning the boards for iconic recordings by Nirvana, Soundgarden and Mudhoney. “Having Jack Endino available to us at that time was an opportunity we couldn’t really pass up,” Allred said. The band started with no drummer and used a click track for early recordings, he explained. “But Jack is not a fan of the click track, to say the least. He won’t use it. So it was going from this really studio produced kind of album - our first one - to the second one where it was real loose, no clicks. You just kind of played the song. And we didn’t really do a lot of overdubs other than vocals on this record.” Show info: Start time for Friday’s show is 8 p.m. Tickets are $7 to $10, and you must be 21 or older to attend; www.jazzbones. com for further details.

they have outlived their usefulness. “These dead ideas and dead beliefs are not alive in us,” says Mrs. Alving, “but they’re rooted there all the same, and we can’t rid ourselves of them. I’ve only got to pick up a newspaper and I see them between the lines. There must be ghosts all over the country – as countless as grains of sand. And we

are, all of us, so pitifully afraid of the light.” New Muses’ plays are performed in the wonderfully intimate setting of the Dukesbay Theater, inside the same building (upstairs) as the Grand Cinema. “Ghosts” and “A Doll’s House” run through May 22.

ARIES (Mar. 21 – Apr. 19) You have confidence in spades and command other people’s attention. You are happiest in the limelight where you can bask in the adulation of others. Your loyalty to those you love remains steadfast and is rather unshakable. TAURUS (Apr. 20 - May 20) You feel the need to express yourself to your family, and they are open to what you are saying. Whether good or bad, there is a weight that you need lifted off your chest. Get the point across as gently as possible. GEMINI (May 21 – Jun. 20) You have always been known for your powerful forms of self-expression. You do not believe one is truly free unless they can be themselves without judgment. Be the truest form of yourself. Shine on, you crazy diamond. CANCER (Jun. 21 – Jul. 22) There may be a risk of you blowing all your money on flashy things. Your normally reserved expenditures take a turn toward the ritzy. Splurge if you will, but try not to break the bank. Diamonds only get you so far in life. LEO (Jul. 23 – Aug. 22) You’ll be feeling totally in your zone as you command audiences, twirl around in the limelight, and stand firm in your beliefs. Rejoice in the interpersonal relationships you’ve built where the devotion is a two-way street. VIRGO (Aug. 23 – Sep. 22) Now is the time to celebrate all the traits and gifts you’ve been keeping out of the public eye. Your normally modest nature gets a huge confidence boost and you find that it’s not really that scary to be seen.

LIBRA (Sep. 23 – Oct. 22) Something may occur that calls your loyalty to your friends into question. You have no qualms about standing up for your friends, and perhaps even to them. In the end, you are brave and you do it out of love. SCORPIO (Oct. 23 – Nov. 21) Now is the time to dazzle people through your work. People will take note of your skill set and applaud it accordingly. Be proud of your work and brace yourself for the limelight. This time, it will feel good. SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22 – Dec. 21) There may be some test of your knowledge coming up and you have no issues with flexing your intellectual muscles. You have worked hard to accumulate the knowledge, now let others know.











PISCES (Feb. 19 – Mar. 20) You put a lot of hard work into the details, so don’t let others minimize what you do or how often you do it. Now is the time to stand up for yourself and demand recognition. Attempt to do it with a smile on your face.


We’ve hidden 12 Tacoma Weekly-themed words in this word search. How many can you find? Not sure what you’re looking for? Head over to B5 for the complete word list.

CAPRICORN (Dec. 22 – Jan. 19) Chaos may be running amok in your life, but you have the ability to stand up in the face of sudden happenings and put on a brave face. Nothing can get in your way, so don’t let it. Pull through. AQUARIUS (Jan. 20 – Feb. 18) Affections and devotions are renewed as you may finally realize what you have in your relationship and how valuable it is to you. If uncommitted, look forward to receiving a lot of attention from your preferred gender.
