ST. NICHOLAS GREEK ORTHODOX CHURCH PUTS ON JOYFUL FESTIVAL CELEBRATE TACOMA’S GREEK LEGACY

By Kathleen Merryman Souvlaki makes Tacomans happy. S p a n a ko p e t a makes Tacomans warm. Baklava makes Tacomans dance. The proof is in the party, St. Nicholas Greek Orthodox Church’s annual Greek Festival. Friday through Sunday, Oct.4, 5 and 6, it will bring the joy – and the food, music and culture – to the church on the corner of South Yakima Avenue and 15th Street. The women who have been cooking, freezing and baking sweets and

savories since August can’t quite agree on when and how the festival began, even though this year’s flyer bills it as “The 52nd Tacoma Greek Festival.” “We had a bazaar in 1935,” Katherine Turlis said. “It was just for the parish. We always served a chicken dinner.” The church was 10 years old then, completed in 1925 on land donated by Nicholas Apostolos. Sally Hallis is sure of the year because her inlaws married then, and theirs was the first wedding celebrated in the church. The Hallis family was, and is, in the fresh produce business. Other Greeks were grocers, or fish X See GREEK / page A5

Tacoma Landmarks Preservation Commission has greenlighted a plan to brace the slowly deteriorating Tacoma Totem Pole in Fireman’s Park. The idea is for the 110year-old totem pole to be braced up with a pole that is banded to the totem to keep the rotting wood structure from toppling over. The plan now is to install a steel pole along the back of the totem with two steel bands securing the totem to the support pole at a cost of about $40,000. The support bands and pole will be placed in ways to downplay their visibility, but also

POTHOLE OF THE WEEK VISIT US ON FACEBOOK MHJLIVVRJVT[HJVTH^LLRS`

So. 37th and So. Park Avenue Tacoma has a tremendous pothole problem, and the city knows it. During the past couple of years, the city has acknowledged this issue by spending millions of dollars in major arterial repairs with the council’s “pothole initiative.� And in 2010, routine maintenance by Tacoma’s Grounds and Maintenance Division completed street repairs on 229,638 square feet of road. In 2011, the city repaired about 150,000 more square feet of road riddled with holiness, and continued those efforts in 2012. And while that may sound like a lot of ground, new holes pop up – or return – each and every day, which means a pothole-free road might never exist in Tacoma. With the help of our readers and our dedicated Pothole Pig, we will continue to showcase some of the city’s biggest and best potholes through our weekly homage to one of T-Town’s most unnerving attributes. Help the Pothole Pig by e-mailing your worst pothole suggestions to SaveOurStreets@tacomaweekly.com. Potholes in need of repair can be reported to the City of Tacoma by calling (253) 591-5495.

The No. 16 Buick Regal was built for NASCAR racing by Banjo Mathews in November of 1988 for David Pearson’s Chattanooga Chew sponsored team. Pearson’s son was the driver during the 1989 Winston Cup season before it was sold to historic stock car dealer and driver Gene Felton. The original No. 16 Chattanooga Chew is a gem for collectors of NASCAR items since it comes from a well-known constructor, has ties to a famous team and had success in the NASCAR Historic Racing series after its “retirement.� Felton had rebuilt the car and passed it to a client who in turn sold it to the present owner, an avid historic racer, in 1995. Prior to this, Felton gave “old 16� a good run in the 12-Hours of Sebring IMSA endurance contest of 1994. But the Regal itself is interesting. Frequently sharing the same body and power-train as the Century, the Buick Regal was a mid-size that was produced by General Motors from 1973 through 2004.

market, Buick wanted to market to compete against the Oldsmobile Cutlass Supreme, the Grand Prix and the Monte Carlo. The Regal marked the unveiling of the first major restyling of the GM’s intermediate body design since 1968. This was also the first major restyling for both the Monte Carlo and the Grand Prix. The original Regal shared the front and rear styling of the Century, though subtle distinctions separated them and included differing grilles and taillight lenses. The newly fash-

City News TRY TRANSIT MONTH OFFICIALLY LAUNCHED Transit curious? Oct. 1 marked the beginning of Try Transit Month, a month-long education and outreach campaign to encourage people in the Puget Sound Region to use public transportation. The Pierce County Council and Pierce Transit kicked off the month with a Try Transit proclamation. In its third year in Tacoma, Try Transit Month is an effort to inspire, reward and incentivize downtown employees and residents to take advantage of the great transit options available from Pierce Transit and Sound Transit. Participants will enjoy all the rewards that come with taking public transportation (more exercise, more time to read or relax, more money in their pockets) and will also be eligible to win some great prizes, including preloaded ORCA cards, Broadway Center for the Performing Arts tickets, IGA gift cards, Zipcar credit, and a grand prize of tickets to the Nov.17 Seahawks game against the Minnesota Vikings. Try Transit Month organizers are planning several group transit adventures â&#x20AC;&#x201C; including a bus â&#x20AC;&#x153;crawlâ&#x20AC;? to popular Tacoma nightspots and a family-friendly adventure to Point Defiance Zoo â&#x20AC;&#x201C; to help new transit users get on board in Tacoma. Participants can sign up, log trips, recruit friends, share stories, and learn about upcoming events online, using the social transportation service provided by local startup Luum. Businesses interested in promoting transit ridership can contact Downtown On the Go to hear more about the ORCA Business Passport program which helps businesses save money by offering transit passes at discounted prices. .9(5+*05,4(;67:-<5+.6(3 FOR DIGITAL CONVERSION By Thanksgiving, patrons of The Grand Cinema will enjoy bright new movie screens and improved sound systems as well as the crispness of state-of-the-art digital film projection. The enhancements are on the way thanks to a successful community fundraising drive that netted more than $370,000 for a digital conversion project. The original goal for the 10-month campaign, which ended Sept. 15, was $344,000. A crew from Boston Sound & Light, a highly regarded theater technology company, is scheduled to install the digital equipment and other upgrades in early November, with a goal of completing the work by Nov. 15, grand director Phil Cowan said. Only one of the cinemaâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s four theaters will be closed at any time during the project. In addition to new screens and enhanced sound systems, changes will include automatic curtain â&#x20AC;&#x153;maskingâ&#x20AC;? that adjusts the dimensions of the screens and an improved assistive-listening system for the hearing impaired. The Grand will retain the ability to show archival 35-mm prints in one of its theaters. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s really important to us,â&#x20AC;? Cowan said, â&#x20AC;&#x153;because our mission includes showing older films that might not be available in the new digital format. Thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a crucial part of movie history we otherwise

More often, Regal interiors were found to be much more luxurious than lesser Century models and featured wood-grain trim on both dashboard and door panels, and notchback bench seats with center armrests with velour, cloth or vinyl upholstery, and door-pull straps.

Eventually all theaters showing new films will have to make the costly switch to digital projection. More than 1,600 individuals contributed to The Grandâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s fund drive, Cowan said. Foundations that contributed generous grants include: Dimmer Family Foundation, Forest Foundation Fund of the Greater Tacoma Community Foundation, Russell Family Foundation, Ben B. Cheney Foundation, Bamford Foundation and Emily Hall Tremaine Foundation. The successful fund drive comes at a time when The Grandâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s membership is at an all-time high of 5,441. The total stood at 4,612 when the campaign began in November. When The Grand opened its fourth screen in December 2009, membership was only 2,300.

*/(4),96776:,:7967 The Tacoma-Pierce County Chamber opposes the City of Tacomaâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Proposition 1 increasing utility taxes by 33 percent at a cost of over $10 million per year. This measure, on the fall ballot, proposes to increase the existing tax by 33 percent and add a $10 million-plus cost to consumers each year on their natural gas, electricity, telephone land lines and cell phone service bills. If passed, Proposition 1 would only partially fund basic road maintenance. â&#x20AC;&#x153;The reality is that this tax will be passed on to the customer on top of the City Councilâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s recently added $20 car tab tax that was supposed to go towards fixing our roads,â&#x20AC;? said Tom Pierson, Tacoma-Pierce County Chamber President & CEO. The City of Tacoma estimates that it needs roughly $800 million in additional revenue to fix existing transportation infrastructure inadequacies that the City has ignored for years. The proposed increase will take 80 years to correct existing problems â&#x20AC;&#x201C; and hope that no new transportation needs occur. â&#x20AC;&#x153;The Chamber supports responsible and sustainable planning that will improve Tacomaâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s roads with a comprehensive solution for fixing roads, not a band aid approach that the Council has put forward to the voters this fall,â&#x20AC;? Pierson stated. The Tacoma-Pierce County Chamber maintains that there are solutions aside from the Prop 1 Utility Tax hike: Tacoma residents are now beginning to be charged the $20 license-tab fee adopted last year by the City. These dollars should be used to fund road repair. Allow the new Fiscal Sustainability Task Force to complete its work examining the Cityâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s revenue structure and budget deficit. Allow the new Transportation Commission to advise the City on short-term and long-range transportation planning. City Council must prioritize infrastructure maintenance with existing dollars. The Council is currently spending less than 1% of its general fund budget on maintenance while other cities average nearly four times as much. -05+469,*0;@5,>:(;;(*64(>,,23@*64

Thieves steal plaque from Karpeles Karpeles Manuscript Library Director Tom Jutilla discovered something amiss when he arrived at work on Tuesday, Oct. 1. The big, heavy bronze plaque bearing the libraryâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s name had apparently been stolen from its pedestal. Valued at approximately $4,000, the plaque had been in place for 25 years at the library across from Wright Park. Anyone with information about the theft is asked to call (253) 7984721. It was just last year around this time that a dispute over two cannons at the library resulted in one of them being seized by American Legion Post No. 2. The legion claimed it was the rightful owner of the cannons, as they were in place when the legion sold the building to the Karpeles family. A Pierce County Superior Court judge ruled that the cannons were to stay on Karpeles property, and the one missing cannon was returned.

One shoplifter apparently wasnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t thinking clearly about how his arrest was going to end. But such is often the case with shoplifters. See if you can spot the moment his plan went wrong â&#x20AC;&#x201C; besides shoplifting, that is. A man wrestled with store security at a grocery store along the 1900 block of South 72nd Street on Sept. 27 after he was spotted stuffing items into his pants and attempting to walk out of the store. The security officers handcuffed the man and called police. The man had tried to shoplift deodorant and razor blades so he could look presentable for his grandmotherâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s funeral the following day. A search also uncovered a small amount of black tar heroin in his pocket, which the man admitted to using as a way to cope with his grandmotherâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s passing. The man had no identification and gave the arresting officer a name that did not match what his mother and female friend called him when they saw he was being arrested in the parking lot. But the man stuck to his story, despite not knowing his Social Security number or the address on his driverâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s license. The officer ran the name the man gave and found that the name belonged to a convicted felon. The officer gave the man an out by telling him that if he admitted his real name, he wouldnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t be charged with identify theft for falsely using another manâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s name. The man stood by his story, which tacked on another felony when he finally admitted to jailers who were fingerprinting him that he had given a false name. The tally for attempting to steal $20.34 worth of grooming supplies came to: strong-arm robbery, theft, trespassing, obstructing a police officer, felony possession of drugs and felony identity theft.

ELECTION â&#x20AC;&#x2122;13

Tacoma Weekly queries the candidates on the ballot for the general election in November.

)HJVU/VSKLTHU]PLMVY7VY[VM;HJVTH*VTTPZZPVU With elections coming up on Nov. 6, Tacoma Weekly is getting a jump on it all with a brief question-and-answer among local candidates. Connie Bacon and Eric Holdeman are vying for a seat on the Port of Tacoma Commission. Here they answer questions about their views on Port issues.

Connie Bacon (incumbent)

Tacoma Weekly: Tell us about your view of the role the Port of Tacoma Commission plays in the community in terms of stewardship and economic development and how those roles can conflict as well as work together? Connie Bacon: The Port is often referred to as the economic engine for Pierce County. That means we are engaged with the community to create jobs and to partner in community upgrades. We do that by serving on project groups and committees and lending our support both financially and personal engagement. I serve, for instance, as an Advisor at UWT, co-chair of a new outreach called Water Partners of Tacoma to create a hub here for environmental solutions, the Asia Pacific Cultural Center Board and other groups. Within these groups we work out differences as part of the process. TW: What is/are the biggest challenge(s) facing the Port of Tacoma in the near future and what key decisions do you see the commission making concerning that future? CB: The Port recently completed a 10-year strategic plan with specific goals and measurable outcomes to address competitiveness in the industry, which is the biggest challenge for the future. We have strategically and successfully come through the economic crisis and are strongly poised to compete. We have recently again received an A+ rating from Moodyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s and Standard and Poorâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s showing our Port is in solid financial shape and a good investment. Key decisions the Commission will be called on to make regard how to invest our resources, financial, real estate, and staff, that will make our Port state of the art in the industry, thus able to attract new customers and keep current business. The Commission must continue to incentivize our key staff and support delivery of the goals we have set for ourselves including maintaining great relationships with labor. We must be active in lobbying state and federal legislation that will both not impede our ability to compete (like the Harbor Maintenance Tax) and will enhance

our ability to compete (like building Rt. 167) and continue our cooperative activities with the Port of Seattle on these and other issues like environmental regulation, as an example. But I believe the greatest task of the Commission is to understand the worldwide maritime industry and retain our individual strong personal relationships with industry decision-makers so we can make well-informed decisions that will affect the future success of our Port. TW: What experience and perspectives do you bring to the commission and how do they match (or clash) with other members of the commission? CB: The current makeup of the Commission is very collegial. We each bring different experience and expertise and each of us highly respects the others so we can freely discuss Port issues. My experience is based on many years of trade activity both as Exec. Dir. of the World Trade Center and 16 years of experience on the Commission. This experience, and the relationships I have built in the industry and the community, are key to influencing decisionmakers to choose our Port for their business. My further government experience as Special Asst. to Gov. Gardner enables me to call upon my relationships at the state and federal level to promote our Port. As to perspectives, I believe in prudent and conservative financial policy, attention to our customers and careful but aggressive planning for the future. TW: What else should voters know about you? CB: Many voters know about me already through my leadership in the community for many years. They know that I have world-class experience and proven leadership to continue to lead the Port to continuing success in a challenging future. TW: How can voters learn more about you and your political platform? CB: Refer to my website at conniebacon4port.com and to the long list of leaders who are endorsing me.

Eric Holdeman

Ladies and girls, please wear modest dress and head covering.

TW: What is/are the biggest challenge(s) facing the Port of Tacoma in the near future and what key decisions do you see the commission making concerning that future? EH: International competition is the new norm. Rather than being concerned about winning business from the Port of Seattle we need to be looking for ways to work together with our neighbors to the north. The Grand Alliance deal only brought $200,000 in increased revenue to the Port. Trading business between the two ports is only a race to the bottom. The real competition is coming from Canadian ports that are investing billions of dollars to modernize their infrastructure. The $600 million debt that the Port currently is carrying is very worrisome. This is debt the people of Pierce County owe due to poor decision-making in trying to expand the port in ways that led to catastrophic failures. This includes the failed development of the NYK terminal and rail yard expansion at Maytown in Thurston County. This debt is keeping the port from being able to modernize its maritime infrastructure. Our infrastructure to include cranes is some of the oldest on the West Coast, one crane is 35 years old. New cranes cost $10 million each. Throughout the entire Port area there are only two cranes that are of the most modern construction. In comparison, the Port of Savannah, GA has 16 super-post-Panamax cranes available to unload the supersized ships going into service now. 16,000 TEU ships are sailing now, 24,000 TEU ships are being built. The typical large ship calling at the Port today is 8,500 TEU. There is no capacity for these large ships of the future! Additional rail infrastructure is needed. We are nearing the capacity for the Port and what the mainline railroads that

of the Port of Tacoma is to provide economic stimulus to the people and businesses of Pierce County. Our goal is to provide an environment and infrastructure that attract new business and create family wage jobs. In an increasingly competitive maritime world, we need to form new partnerships and renew old ones to compete with other East Coast and Gulf ports that the Panama Canal will open to the Asia trade. In doing the above, we must do so in an environmentally responsible manner. There must be a balance between growth and protecting our air and water.

service the Port can handle. Future growth will be constrained if this is not fixed. In comparison, today the Port of Prince Rupert in Canada is only using 25 percent of their rail capacity. TW: What experience and perspectives do you bring to the commission and how do they match (or clash) with other members of the commission? EH: I have a background, skills and experience that none of the other commissioners have. The Port is a Strategic Port supporting military deployments from Fort Lewis. My 20-year Army career as an infantry officer provides me with a strong background for this mission area that the Port has. My 40 years of leadership and management experience with director level know-how, serving in complex geopolitical settings and living and working in foreign countries has prepared me well for the decision making environment of the commission. I am a strong proponent of using technology, something not present on the commission. TW: What else should voters know about you? EH: I served as the Director of Security for the Port of Tacoma for four years. In that position I supervised 60 personnel, about 24 percent of the Port staff. During those four years I oversaw $56M in Port Security funding and projects that improved the security measures at the port, protecting the people of Tacoma and Pierce County. I have a long history of building regional coalitions that cross jurisdictional boundaries and involve government, private business and nonprofit sectors. I strongly believe that there needs to be a stronger emphasis on safety and security at the Port. TW: How can voters learn more about you and your political platform?

require that bolt holes be drilled into the totem itself. The emergency measure is needed after city workers found the totem has become significantly weakened by dry rot and an infestation of carpenter ants. While out of danger of collapse, its future remains unknown. â&#x20AC;&#x153;This really doesnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t fix the problem,â&#x20AC;? said preservation and arts commissioner JD Elquist. â&#x20AC;&#x153;At the end of the day, it is still out in the rain and weather.â&#x20AC;? The bracing, however, allows time for discussions about long-term plans for the totem. The support system is being installed to stand next to the totem for an extended period of time to allow for a full exploration of options. While the talks will start sooner rather than later, the bracing system is being installed to last for a generation. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I wonâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t say it is permanent, but it is for several decades,â&#x20AC;? Tacoma Preservation Officer Reuben McKnight said. The 80-foot totem pole dates to 1903. It was commissioned by Tacoma civic boosters and curio shop owners Chester Thorne and William Sheard and installed near its

Maria Cook said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Yakima Avenue was a Greek neighborhood,â&#x20AC;? Deena Fotinopoulos said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;A lot of them were working down across the 11th Street Bridge. On the way back home, they would stop at the Greek coffee house and hang out. The Mayflower.â&#x20AC;? That 1935 bazaar was internal, Ellie Pangis noted. It wasnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t quite a festival. The point that tipped a celebration into festival territory is likely the dancing, and the invitation to the whole city to join in a feast of culture and food. They did that a few times at the Normanna Hall, the women said, and, they seem to recall, the Odd Fellows Hall. In the 1980s, they brought it home to their church. They served sit-down lunches and dinners, sold pastries, cheeses, oils, herbs, cookies, books and icons. They gave tours of their sanctuary and talked about the faith behind it. Their young people danced, demonstrating why they were perpetual prize-winners in competitions. They set up a bar, which sold Greek beers and wine, outside the back door. But in November, no one ventured out there. Better to hold the party in October, they decided. Right away, the festival outgrew their facilities, and helped pay for a new kitchen. One church member pushed the vision of a parking lot, and helped buy the two old houses next door to make one. With that paved lot, they had room for a tent â&#x20AC;&#x201C; and a new dimension to the festival. Pangis remembers gasping at the rental price, then delighting in what it made possible. First there was room to dance, a stage in the center where, every other hour, the young people demonstrated regional folk dances. There was room for stalls selling calamari, salad, souvlaki, gyros, dolmathes and Greek fries. Beyond their sit-down meals, there was a market for that movable feast, the women discovered. Their festival became the warmest, cheeriest place for

present location the day before President Theodore Roosevelt arrived in Tacoma, the staff report stated. Reportedly carved at a cost of $3,000, the totem was intended to rival Seattleâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s infamous Pioneer Square Totem Pole and is symbolic of a broader historical narrative surrounding the role of Puget Sound in the Alaskan Gold Rush and the internationally significant Alaska Yukon Exposition that was being planned for 1909. The pole is not technically a totem since its origins are unknown, but its design is suggestive of Haida style of northwestern British Columbia. The Tacoma Totem Pole is a city landmark and is part of the cityâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s art collection. That puts it under the review of the Tacoma Arts Commission, which had already approved the concept of bracing the totem earlier this summer. Preservation efforts could include moving the totem indoors to remove it from weather damage, bracing it with permanent supports or supporting it with an interior pole and treatment to control insect damage. Whatever the plan, all options include improved signage to explain the history and cultural significance of totems and this totemâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s role in the cityâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s history.

Tacomans to mingle. If you wished you hadnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t lost touch with, say, the parents from your childâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s pre-school, the Greek Festival was the place to run into them again. If you wanted to have an informal chat with your council member, you bought a gyro, watched and waited. They all show up. That is why the festival volunteers start showing up for work parties three times a week in August. Sally Hallis, in charge of procurement, orders eggs by the hundreds of dozens and flour by the 50-pound sack. You donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t want to know how much butter she buys. The cooks, mostly women, assemble every dish

that can be frozen and put them away to be baked on the festival days. They make the cookies to be sold by the dozen. The Monday and Tuesday before the festival, they make the bread. Pangis is the master baker, the hands and memory behind the dough, the mistress of the Hobart industrial mixer. She is the first to say that tsoureki is not exactly an October bread. Eggy, sweet, braided, basted with milk and sprinkled with sesame seeds, it is a traditional Easter bread. But people love it, and the festival sells out each year at $6 a loaf. So the volunteers bake it. Pangis gets to the church at 6 a.m. on baking days to

$1.50 per ride in the fall of 2016. The $1 fee that was adopted was lower than the staff-recommended $1.50 fare as a way to ease riders into paying for what has been a free system since the trains began running 10 years ago. Discounts will also be available for children and low-income riders. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Details on the process for creating and distributing the discounted vouchers to lowincome riders, and the number of riders who would benefit, havenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t been fleshed out yet,â&#x20AC;? Sound Transit spokeswoman Kimberly Reason said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;The agency plans to mirror the system King County Metro has in place, which sells discounted tickets to social service agencies for distribution to their client base.â&#x20AC;? About a million riders use Tacoma Link each year, but that will drop to about 728,000 riders once fares are required since people are expected to either walk or drive to avoid buying tickets. Tacoma Mayor and Transit Board Member Marilyn Strickland championed the lower rate as well as argued to keep the fare at $1 until the 1.6 mile route from the Tacoma Dome to the Theater District gets extended to Martin Luther King Jr. Way in 10 years if proposals start the batches of dough. By 9 a.m. The first of them have risen and are ready to be punched down, proofed and sent onto the line. The women who arrive at 9 a.m. bring the skill of bread-braiding with them. Each adds a special touch to the production line. Some have a knack for cutting off precisely a pound of dough, then lobbing that dough onto the stainless steel braiding tables. Deanne Oâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;Connell and Mary Georgopolos are speed braiders. Kathleen Heidel is the qual-

move forward as projected. Design and engineer work on the expansion will come this winter, but actual construction canâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t start until $50 million in federal grants is awarded and a â&#x20AC;&#x153;local partnershipâ&#x20AC;? of another $50 million is established. The decision to start charging fares came after Link ridership topped the one million mark, suggesting that ticket sales would generate revenue to help pay for operating the system. The fare collection system is expected to cost about $550,000 to install. That means ticket sales will take about four years to pay off the cost of collecting fares once the 2016 hike kicks into effect. It would take almost two decades of charging just $1 to pay off the ticketing system. That is longer than the system is projected to last before needing replacement or significant repairs. Once paid off, the collection system will generate $791,000 in total annual fare revenues, yielding $262,000 in annual net revenues at the $1.50 fare rate. The total annual operation costs is $4.7 million for Tacoma Link, and the projected fare collection would represent about 16 percent of the systemâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s total cost. Sound Transit policy goals seek fares to bring in about 20 percent of costs for the transit service. That means higher fares could come in future years, especially when the Hilltop expansion comes.

STADIUM OFFENSE BREAKS OUT AGAINST YELM Three first-half goals lift Tigers to win

CURTIS HOLDS OFF PUYALLUP IN AERIAL BATTLE Bellarmine Prep, Foss roll to shutouts

T

he second half between Curtis and Puyallup started to resemble basketball on turf. Led by veteran quarterbacks who were airing it out all night, the Vikings’ squads were charging downfield against each other nearly at will. But after storming back from an 11-point halftime deficit, Curtis struck for two touchdowns early in the third quarter and held off Puyallup for a 38-35 win at home on Sept. 27. “It was like a track meet,” said Curtis head coach Clay Angle. “It was back and forth…all you do against Puyallup is try to slow them down enough to win. Down by 11 at halftime, our kids came back really strong.” Puyallup established their quick pace from the start, as quarterback Brendan Illies – who finished 21-for-40 for 391 yards and five touchdowns – hit Levi Jordan for a six-yard touchdown to cap a 5-play, 66-yard drive less than a minute into the game. Curtis answered when Mason Mahoney hit a 38-yard field goal to cap a 10-play drive. Curtis moved deep into Puyallup territory early in the second quarter to try to take the lead, but couldn’t take advantage and turned the ball over on downs at the 20-yard line. That’s when the quick-working Puyallup offense really got in gear, as Illies hit Karl Fjellstad for a 20-yard touchdown to make it 14-3 to cap a three-play, 80-yard drive. Curtis responded when Donnell Diego scored on an 11-yard run, but Puyallup scored again three plays later, as Illies hit Jordan on a 51-yard corner route for a score down the left sideline to make it 21-10 at the half. “The first half they did some things, scouting-wise, that took away some of the things we have been doing,” Angle said. “So we had to identify what they were doing and make the adjustments.” But Curtis flew out of the gates in the second half, as Wismer – who finished 15-for-23 for 310 yards and three touchdowns – hit a wide-open Jayson Williams on a play action for an 82-yard touchdown on the first play of the second half. “It was in the game plan,” Wismer said of the play. “We knew the safeties were flying up on the toss. We just faked the toss and ran Jayson right past them. It was a great play.” Curtis got the ball back five plays later when defensive lineman Odessa Mendoza intercepted a tipped pass at Puyallup’s 34-yard line, and Wismer later scored on an 11-yard run to take a 24-21 lead.

teams traded two more quick blows, as Illies hit D.J. Winter for a 31-yard touchdown less than a minute later, but Wismer hit Carter McKay for a 53-yard score to cap a five-play, 72-yard drive. “I love playing (against) Brendan,” Wismer said. “I kind of look up to him even though he’s younger than me…he has a really good arm.” Curtis’ defense forced four straight incompletions inside their own 20-yard line on Puyallup’s next drive to get the ball back, and Wismer later made it 38-28 with 6:50 left in the game when he hit McKay for a 17-yard touchdown. Puyallup cut it to 38-35 when Illies hit Jordan – who finished with 11 catches for 204 yards – for a 24-yard touchdown with 44 seconds left, but Curtis recovered the onside kick and ran out the clock. Williams had four catches for 121 yards for Curtis, while McKay finished with five catches for 108 yards and Diego had 20 carries for 112 yards. By Jeremy Helling

BELLARMINE PREP BLANKS SOUTH KITSAP

Team identities usually take a while to form, but the current edition of Bellarmine Prep was formed a long time ago. With the move of tailback Lou Millie to quarterback, and a large portion of the offensive line returning, the Lions’ game plan was not going to be a secret to fans of both Bellarmine Prep and their opponents. Things would not differ in Port Orchard on Sept. 27, as the Lions rolled to a 31-0 win over South Kitsap to improve to 4-0 on the season and 2-0 in Narrows League play. “Our boys came to play tonight, and they also reaped the benefits of a good week of practice,” said Bellarmine Prep head coach Tom Larsen. The Lions tallied 307 rushing yards for the night, led by 185 yards from junior tailback Nate Goltermann and 110 yards from Millie. Facing a 4th-and-1 from his own 39-yard line in the first quarter, South X See FOOTBALL / page A9

After going scoreless in their first two league games, Stadium broke out in a big way against Yelm. The Tigers controlled much of the possession and struck for three first-half goals on their way to a 4-1 win over the Tornadoes on Sept. 26 at Stadium Bowl. “The first two (league) games (of the season) were sloppy, and we didn’t have much of a preseason to speak of,” said Stadium head coach Jeremy Leffel. “This was really nice to see what we are actually able to do.” Junior forward Joyce Jensen gave the Tigers a 1-0 lead in the tenth minute, corralling a ball 20 yards away from goal, spinning away from a defender and driving a shot in between the keeper and the right post. They doubled the lead six minutes later, as Ally Beardemphl got loose on the right side and drove a low shot that was deflected by the keeper, and Alecia Williams sent a follow-up shot into an open net. “We settled the ball a lot more and were getting a lot more possession through the middle, and then getting it wide,” said Williams of the Tigers’ successful offensive strategy. Stadium grabbed a commanding 3-0 lead in the 36th minute, as Sarah Boucher sent a corner into the middle, where Kristi Williams was waiting to drive it in with a header. “That was really nice to see them connect there,” Leffel said. “We have been working a lot on some set stuff.” The Tigers got caught with a counterattack in the 53rd minute, as Yelm cut the deficit to 3-1, but Alecia Williams tallied her second goal of the match in the 67th minute – a header off another corner from Boucher – to regain a three-goal advantage and essentially seal the match. Leffel noted that after playing without a couple of key midfielders a 4-0 loss to Gig Harbor two days before, the emphasis was playing the ball through the middle. “We changed our shape a little bit tonight and it looked good,” said Leffel, highlighting the efforts of junior midfielder Madison Putnam. “She worked hard tonight.” The Tigers were set to host Olympia on Oct. 3 at 7:15 p.m., and return to action when they host Central Kitsap on Oct. 10 at 7:15 p.m.

If this is Bellarmine Prepâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s version of a slow match, many teams would settle for it without hesitation. The defending state champs were challenged early in each set, but pulled away for a 25-15, 25-15, 25-15 win over Central Kitsap at home on Sept. 26 to stay perfect on the year. â&#x20AC;&#x153;It was a little bit slower, but we finally got the hang of it and got in our groove,â&#x20AC;? said Bellarmine Prep senior libero Julia Wright, who led the defensive effort with 11 digs. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We kind of pulled together and played as a

team finally, after a rough start.â&#x20AC;? The Cougars got off to a 3-0 lead in the first set before the Lions launched a 15-5 run, with reigning Gatorade state player of the year Courtney Schwan collecting six of her 11 kills during the stretch. But Central Kitsap was honed in on Schwan from the start, as the Cougarsâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; Kelsey Scott put up backto-back blocks off Schwan later in the first set to pull back within 18-12. â&#x20AC;&#x153;That was their game plan, and I was very excited about that,â&#x20AC;? said Bellarmine Prep head coach Jody DeGroot. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I want our girls to work against blocks that are real blocks.

Tacoma Sports Online

They did a really good job of putting up a good block against our girls, and that was important for us to experience.â&#x20AC;? The Lions closed the first set on a 7-3 run, spurred on by aces from Schwan and Miristi Devereux. Bellarmine Prep then began to deploy some of its other weapons after falling behind early in the second set, as Schwan set up both Reghan Pukis and Megan Jacobsen for kills to regain the lead at 4-3. Schwan later added three kills in the span of five points, and the Lions closed the set on a 13-6 run. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Right before every game weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re talking about

â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;We canâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t let up,â&#x20AC;&#x2122;â&#x20AC;? said Schwan, who added eight aces and eight digs for the Lions. â&#x20AC;&#x153;The best way to show a team respect is to throttle them to show weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re not going to let up, because we know youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re a good team and weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re going to take it to you.â&#x20AC;? The Lionsâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; experience and power began to wear down the Cougars early in the third set, as Pukis collected five of her teamhigh 13 kills in the span of 12 points, and Wrightâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s ace later gave Bellarmine Prep a commanding 15-3 lead. Schwan emphatically ended the match with three aces in the final four points. The Lions topped South

Kitsap 25-5, 25-10, 25-7 on Sept. 30 to improve to 7-0 on the season and 5-0 in league play, having won all 21 sets they had played to that point. The success of last yearâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s championship run might be hard to live up to, but the Lions insist they are dedicated to improving â&#x20AC;&#x201C; and challeng-

ing for another title. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We definitely think about it, but we try not to let it get to our heads,â&#x20AC;? Wright said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We still keep trying to work hard at practice, and do our best to push ourselvesâ&#x20AC;Ś itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s hard defending a state title, and we know we have to do it again.â&#x20AC;?

SPORTSWATCH LOGGER MEN SIT IN FIRST Racking up two more wins at home last weekend, the University of Puget Sound menâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s soccer team sits in first place in the Northwest Conference with a 4-0 record.

Vincent McCluskey scored on a diving header in the 67th minute off Mathew Durlandâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s assist, and Sean Ryan added the final goal in the 75th minute. Loggers keeper Nathan King made five saves in the match. The offense stayed hot early in a 3-1 win over Linfield on Sept. 29, as McCluskey got the Loggers started with a header goal off Luke Sandblomâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s free kick in the eighth minute. Sean Ryan made it 2-0 in the 17th min-

LUTES GET TWO *65-,9,5*,=0*;690,: The Pacific Lutheran womenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s soccer team notched their first two conference victories of the season last weekend, getting the wins in dramatically different fashion. The Lutes won 1-0 at Lewis & Clark in two overtimes â&#x20AC;&#x201C; their third straight two-overtime match â&#x20AC;&#x201C; on Sept. 28, as Kaylie Rozell scored the golden goal in the 105th minute after taking a pass from Kristi Dâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;Alessandro on the right side. Rozell drove a shot from 15 yards out into the top left corner of the net. The Pioneers outshot the Lutes 20-10 in regulation, but Lutes keeper Marisa Gonzalez played the entire match and collected six saves. Rozell struck for a goal for the third consecutive game to cap a 4-0 win at George Fox on Sept. 29, getting her team-high fifth goal of the season in the 64th minute. The Lutes didnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t get on the board until the 41st minute, when Blake Warner scored on a header off a cross by Jamie Hoffman. Warner scored again in the 50th minute, and Lauren Larson added a goal on a penalty kick less than two minutes later to make it 3-0. The Lutes outshot George Fox 22-8 in the match, and Gonzalez and Takara Mitsui split time in goal for PLU, with each coming up with four saves. The Lutes return to action when they host Whitworth on Oct. 5 at noon and Whitman on Oct. 6 at noon.

WFootball From page A6

Kitsap coach Eric Canton took a huge gamble and went for it, but the Lionsâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; defense came up big to get the ball back. They wasted no time getting on the board, as Millie would find Drew Griffin for a 44-yard touchdown pass for a 7-0 lead. They added to the lead on the first drive of the second quarter as Matthew Phillichi connected on a 33-yard field goal with 8:08 left in the half. The Wolves threatened late in the half, but came up just short on fourthand-goal. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Those two (fourthdown stops) gave us momentum that we carried over to the second half,â&#x20AC;? said Larsen. The Lions launched a 10-play, 72-yard drive early in the third quarter, capped by a 15-yard touchdown run by Goltermann for a 17-0 lead. The gameclinching drive came early in the fourth quarter when the Lions went 78 yards in 12 plays to up the lead to 24-0 on Goltermannâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s fouryard touchdown run. Goltermann had eight straight carries for 47 yards at one point on the drive. â&#x20AC;&#x153;This was a total team effort,â&#x20AC;? said Bellarmine Prep center Matthew Hallis. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We just kept grinding

the whole night long giving Nate and Lou room to runâ&#x20AC;? â&#x20AC;&#x153;It was a huge team effort,â&#x20AC;? echoed defender Michael Letts. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Both lines were outstanding tonight and had South (Kitsap) backpedaling.â&#x20AC;?

Devon Clark followed with a four-yard touchdown run, and Isaiah Littlejohn hit Mike Cockeâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; for a 21-yard score in the second quarter to make it 21-0. Alonzo Jones later returned an interception 35 yards for a score, and Smith returned a punt 61 yards for a touchdown to give the Falcons a commanding 36-0 lead at the half. Littlejohn connected with Chris Reynolds for a 20-yard score in the third quarter to provide the final margin.

PUYALLUP TRIBAL IMPACT TRIBAL IMPACT

SUPPORTING THE ECONOMIC GROWTH OF OUR COMMUNITY

Over the years, the Puyallup Tribe of Indians has transformed itself and its role in the community. The Tribeâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s determined protection of its natural resources, its pivotal role in development of Tacomaâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s port area, the Tribeâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s major donations to other governments and to charitable organizations, the new-concept Tahoma Market gas station and convenience store, and the development and expansion of the Tribeâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Emerald Queen Casinos are examples of the Puyallup Tribeâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s economic progress. Through its two Emerald Queen Casino locations, Administration, Health Authority, Housing Authority, economic development corporation and school, the Puyallup Tribe is one of the largest employers in Pierce County with a payroll of more than 3,500 people â&#x20AC;&#x201C; 74 percent of whom are non-Native â&#x20AC;&#x201C; and total spending in 2011 of nearly $430 million. This spending supports the community by paying good wages and generous benefits to individuals, and by purchasing goods and services from local suppliers, vendors, contractors and construction companies. Assistance provided to the broader Native American community and the Puyallup Tribal membership also has a far-reaching impact in the community as most of these dollars are in turn spent in the local economy. The Puyallup Tribe is continuously living up to its name, which means, â&#x20AC;&#x153;generous and welcoming behavior to all people.â&#x20AC;? As such, the Tribe is a key sponsor of countless local charities, non-profit organizations, social welfare projects and events that may otherwise suffer in todayâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s tight economy. Despite economic uncertainties across the country, the South Sound is doing well, and the Puyallup Tribe of Indians plays a key role in keeping that a reality. From funding education, jobs, healthcare, city improvement projects, crime prevention and environmental efforts, the Tribeâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s tradition as the â&#x20AC;&#x153;generous peopleâ&#x20AC;? is as strong today as it ever was.

Millions in Funding for Local Governments Each year the Puyallup Tribe distributes 2 percent of its gaming revenue from its two Emerald Queen Casino locations to local governments. Over the years the Tribe has provided millions of dollars to fund vital projects and services, and in these current times of economic uncertainty and struggle, funding from the Tribe is most welcome as state and municipal governments slash their budgets and lay off workers to help make ends meet. Decisions on how to distribute this money is made by the Community Contribution Committee, which consists of representatives of the Puyallup Tribe, the Cities of Tacoma, Puyallup, and Fife, Pierce County, and the Washington State Gambling Commission. This yearâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s approved distribution was for $1.9 million and was awarded as follows: The City of Fife was approved to receive $850,000, an amount determined by an interlocal agreement between the City and the Tribe. These funds go toward a host of community improvement projects that have ranged from police and fire protection to road improvements such as implementing high-occupancy vehicle lanes along Fifeâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s stretch of Interstate 5. The City of Puyallup was approved to receive $38,500 for automatic vehicle locators for Puyallup Police Department. Beginning in January, these will be installed in all of the Cityâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s

police cars, which will allow officers to have a moving map on their computers and transmit their locations to the dispatch center. When dispatchers receive 911 calls, they will be able to send the patrol car that is closest to the location of the emergency. The City of Tacoma was approved to receive $798,237. Of this amount, $188,454 will go to law enforcement costs related to the Emerald Queen Casino in Tacoma. Another $541,783 goes to Tacoma Fire Department, which in 2011 provided fire and medical response 525 times to the casinos. And $68,000 goes to the City Attorneyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Office to pay for prosecuting crimes related to casino operations. Pierce County was approved to receive $85,431 for emergency management services. This covers the cost of assigning county employees to assist the Tribe in preparing to deal with natural disasters. The Tribe agreed to fully fund the Countyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s $148,051 request as there were not enough 2% funds available. An additional $62,620 will thus be paid from the Tribeâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s general fund. Washington State Patrol was approved to receive $150,000 for costs associated with mitigating traffic safety issues on state highways impacted by casino patrons.

Tacoma Fire Department received $541,783 from the Tribe.

Partnering to Improve Local Transportation The Tribe has recognized the need to partner with local jurisdictions to improve local transportation. In the past five years, the Tribe has spent more than $27 million on transportation projects and traffic safety services in neighboring areas. These are largely done in collaboration with state and local governments to benefit the regionâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s growing traffic infrastructure, which helps everyone. Projects range from lighting & safety improvements, bridges, to reconstruction projects. These projects provide hundreds of jobs to local engineers, tradesmen, environmental and cultural resource consultants, construction contractors, and the like.

Tribal funding allowed for the replacement of the Huckleberry Bridge in Greenwater (Pierce County).

RECENT PROJECTS INCLUDE: Huckleberry Bridge: Replacement of a 90ft span bridge, including an access road to the bridge. The project was done under agreement with the Forest Service; the Tribe met the requirements of federal environmental law (NEPA) and will be responsible for bridge maintenance after the project is completed. The project went out to bid in 2011 and construction began

in August 2011. The project is now finished and operational. The Tribe recently received a best project management award for this project by the Regional Bureau of Indian Affairs for completing the project under budget and coordinating with non-tribal jurisdictions for fish restoration. Grandview Avenue & R Street: Reconstruction projects that include adding sidewalk, curbs, gutters, lighting, and stormwater drainage. Permitted through the City of Tacoma. Paving was completed in September 2012. Pacific Highway, Fife: Development of civil engineering, right of way identification and planning for the installation of storm water and utilities in a three lane road between Pacific Highway South and 12th Avenue. The development of the roadway and utilities is to enhance traffic circulation and thus traffic safety of the general public and to provide an alternative access point for ingress/egress to the 54th Street interchange with I-5 where the service level is below standard. Project design began in 2009. The first phase of the project was completed and opened to traffic in March 2012.

Steve-O is still crazy after all these years

See for yourself at Tacoma Comedy Club By Ernest A. Jasmin ejasmin@tacomaweekly.com

O

ver the years, “Jackass” and “Wildboyz” fans have witnessed Steve-O snorting wasabi, jumping great white sharks and getting doused by dog doo. But next week, local fans get to see him doing something that he initially found more daunting than all of the above: telling jokes in front of people. TV’s merriest prankster – born Stephen Glover – will headline Tacoma Comedy Club with five big sets, from Oct. 10 through 12. Recently, he gave Tacoma Weekly a ring to talk about his live show, the prank dream team he’s assembling and – on a more serious note – his ongoing struggles with sobriety. Here are highlights from that conversation. Tacoma Weekly: The last time I saw you, it was one of the craziest crowds I’ve ever seen. A bunch of people were volunteering to get kicked in the (crotch), and I remember this woman with a giant mohawk who was way too enthusiastic about stapling your scrotum. Steve-O: All right. TW: What is your act like now? Steve-O: I still do some physical stuff in the show; but, for the most part, it’s a comedy show. I started doing standup over seven years ago now, and the last three years it’s been a standup comedy tour. I’m having a blast with it. TW: How did you transition into that? Steve-O: In the summer of 2006, I was invited to a comedy club. … I agreed to go and, when I showed up, I just couldn’t think of anything crazier than me trying standup. It was a terrifying proposition, and I decided to go for it with no material prepared. Then, from that first time, I wanted to pursue it. The way that it’s all unfolded is pretty exciting. TW: So is it more traditional jokes or crazy stories about things that have happened to you? Steve-O: A lot of it is stories that are just loaded with jokes. TW: But you still have some of the stunts, sounds like. Steve-O: Yeah, I personally feel like I owe it to the crowd to do some physical stuff just to be faithful to my brand. And I love to teach everybody great tricks, like you’ll learn how to get drunk for free. (It’s) foolproof. My quick lesson on how to get drunk for free is worth the price of admission alone. TW: I’ve gotta ask how things are going now versus five years ago? Steve-O: Yeah, everything’s pretty good, you know. It’s been five and a half years. I can get through a day without doing things that are so humiliating and shameful they make me (trails off.) I don’t feel like I’m such a bad person, doing such terrible things that I don’t deserve to live. That was kind of a dark thing going on back then. I can get through the day and look myself in the

mirror and feel pretty good about the way I conduct my life. It’s interesting, too, because I’ve got this new YouTube channel that I’ve launched (http://www.youtube.com/steveo). TW: I saw that, with the 50 Cent video. Steve-O: Yeah, right, right. It’s crazy, man. In three days, I’ve gone from zero subscribers to 292,000 subscribers. It’s pretty cool. TW: That’s got to be pretty gratifying. Steve-O: I’ve cleaned up my lifestyle a lot; but, a few days ago, I was wrestling a guy underneath a pile of police officers and feeling pretty good about it. TW: Was it part of a bit? Steve-O: The strategy, in corralling all this following on YouTube in such a short time, has been to collaborate with established YouTube personalities that have subscribers in the millions. So I’ve filmed

some videos with those guys, and at the end of those clips they’re directing the traffic to my page. If you plug into the YouTube search engine “Steve-O gets a beat down prank,” it’s pretty incredible stuff. TW: You’ve said in interviews you have “an unreasonable hunger for the attention of others.” But I’ve seen you on “Jackass” and “Wilboyz” bail on stunts and get ticked off. What are the limits for Steve-O? Steve-O: I don’t know. (Long pause.) I like to draw the line at paralysis and death. TW: That seems pretty reasonable. Steve-O: If you look at that 50 Cent luggage video (the rapper pushes Steve-O down the stairs on a luggage cart), that obviously predated said line. (He cracks up.) I don’t know. I guess I don’t really

‘A’) invites the community to “The Brick and the Rose,” a play by the Seattle theater group Arouet. Written as a collage for voices, 10 actors will portray 47 characters in Tommy’s life journey from his birth to his death. Tommy grows up in the slums and thinks differently from his peers. He is constantly searching for something in contrast to the cold, rough city. In his search, he witnesses street violence, drug use and touches of beauty. “The Brick and the Rose” is being presented by Arouet and Madera Furniture Company as part of Arts Crush – a collaborative, month-long arts and cultural festival aimed at engaging community, creating access, inspiring creativity and building arts participation all around the Puget Sound. The free performance will be held on Oct. 10 at 8 p.m. Doors will open at 7:15.

think in terms of limits as much as I think in terms of goals. My goal is to make people laugh and to get as many people paying attention as possible. TW: At the same time, you’ve spoken about learning to differentiate between the character Steve-O and the real Steve-O. How do you find the balance? Steve-O: Yeah, I’ve been striving five years now to find some separation between my personal life and my career as this Steve-O character. I would say that’s been probably more of a struggle than anything else. It’s tough for me to find that separation, but I’m making some progress with it. TW: How supportive have the other “Jackass,” “Wilboyz” guys been? Steve-O: In their own self-interest they’re very supportive. I guess a few weeks ago I was in a restaurant with Johnny Knoxville, and I ordered a virgin Bloody Mary. I said the same thing three different ways just to be really, really cautious. I said, “I want a virgin Bloody Mary, please - just the mix. No alcohol.” When I said that to the waitress Knoxville said, “Pleeeeeeeease, pleeeeease, no alcohol.” (Laughs) In his own self-interest, he’d like for me to do everything to maintain my sobriety because I’m just so intolerable to be around otherwise. TW: What do you have coming up? Is there maybe another “Jackass” movie in the works? Steve-O: We’ll see what happens. There’s the “Grandpa” movie, which is part scripted. Nobody’s in that except for Knoxville, but he’s only in it as an old man. So will there be more “Jackass” after that? I really don’t know. I’m having so much fun filming these YouTube videos, and I kind of think … what if I put together a dream team of some of the most prolific pranksters on YouTube and kind of make a crew out of it, and film a hidden camera/prank/variety show with those guys. I’m kind of in the midst of doing that, and there is some network interest. Whether or not that show happens – and I think it’s likely that it will – I don’t really care one way or another. I’m filming what makes me happy, and I’m able to put it right out myself and get it to the fans with no regulation in the way. I can be as crazy as I want.

BEHIND THE SCREENS: TACOMA FILM FESTIVAL FEATURETTES He studied political science and communications at the University of Oregon, then transferred to Pacific Lutheran University. Back in Anchorage, he interned for a year with the Democratic Party, then returned to Washington to earn his Master’s degree in public administration at Evergreen State College in Olympia. “I’ve written about civics and art in The Weekly Volcano,” he said. “I’ve managed political campaigns for Jake Fey, Dexter Gordon and Jeannie Darneille. And I make music.” In the hip hop world he is D.J. Phinisey, with two CDs, Kids in the Back and Kids in the Back II. He’s about to release his third album, BUILD. You may have caught him at Hell’s Kitchen, Jazzbones, New Frontier Lounge or Nectar Lounge. Powers has served on the Tacoma Arts Commission for two years, and loves the life, loveliness and collaboration the Mural Project has brought to neighborhoods. All of that experience, he said, has led him to that cluttered office, where he torments colleague Laura Marshall with his Daniel Day-Lewis impersonations. “This is the sort of work I always wanted to do,” he said of marketing The Grand and Tacoma Film Festival. “Promoting concerts, working on a campaign, both of those things combine in this job.” The Grand has earned the city’s AMOCAT Arts Award by virtue of the stories it shares with audiences. Powers cited “Fruitvale Station,” which examined questions of race and justice surrounding the shooting of Oscar Grant by two Bay Area Rapid Transit officers in Oakland. It’s a film that creates a platform for community conversations about painful topics, and Tacomans welcome that. “The level of value and affection people have for The Grand is huge. It is hard to find an institution in town that is more beloved. We bring in the highest level art in the world of our age. We bring those films to Tacoma and make them accessible and affordable.”

ach Powers grew up thinking he wanted to be a journalist. The Grand Cinema has brought him to his senses. “I loved storytelling,” The Grand’s director of marketing and communications said in a shared office papered with posters. Powers believes in the story’s power to broaden understanding and strengthen community, and he sees a world of thoughtful films working to that same end. “Since I was a kid, social justice was the center of my life,” said Powers, 26. “I grew up in Anchorage, which is a lot like Tacoma in terms of industry, diversity and labor. It has a similar culture of how to create art and vibrancy.”

Zach Powers’ favorite films: “The Way Way Back,” “The Last of the Mohicans,” “As Good As It Gets,” “Persepolis,” “Jurassic Park,” and “Do The Right Thing.”

aura Marshall was 24 and had already made the worst film of all time when she was hired on as Tacoma Film Festival Director Dec. 3, 2012. Born in the San Francisco Bay Area town of Oakley, she inherited her parents’ dominant movie genes. Her father, a pastor, had grown up in Bremerton making movies with a Super 8 camera. “He made a lot of films, mostly shoot ‘em ups with his high school friends. They entered one, ‘The Few and the Brave,’ into a contest in South Kitsap and won,” Marshall said. Her mother directed church and community theater productions, adding the artistic element to Marshall’s technical skills. When Marshall was in the eighth grade, she asked for professional film editing software for her birthday. “So then we made ‘Jane Blonde,’ a parody of the James Bond movies,” she said. “It was 30 minutes long, pretty impressive for a middle schooler. It is probably the worst film known to mankind. We had fun, though. It was a learning experience.” The family moved to Pierce County, and Marshall kept shooting, broadening

her production experience and studying films. “By sophomore year I was doing the video yearbook and the film work for high school musicals – ‘Guys and Dolls,’ ‘The Sound of Music’ and ‘Once Upon a Mattress.’ We won the Fifth Avenue High School Musical Award. I didn’t do a whole lot of narrative stuff. Just documenting mission trips (to build houses in Mexico) and MLK Day events,” Marshall said. She chose Clover Park Technical College’s Media Design and Production courses over a traditional film school. “It’s good to go to film school, but you don’t need to if you’re talented,” she said. “It’s trial and error. It’s good to have classical teaching, but you have to get out there.” While in college, she worked her way up from the concessions to box office, projection and supervisor with American Multi Cinemas. “We used to play this game at the Narrows,” she said. “Based on what people were wearing, we would guess which movie they were coming to see. I have a sixth sense with movies. I pride myself in knowing what people will like.” She had worked on the remodel of the Lakewood movie houses, gotten familiar with digital projection systems, and was browsing Craigslist when she saw that The Grand Cinema was hiring for the Tacoma Film Festival. Marshall impressed with her knowledge of film history, theater management and taste – and her alarming film trivia mastery. “David O. Selznick was fined $5,000 for using the word ‘damn’ in ‘Gone With the Wind,’” she said. “Now ‘Frankly, my dear, I don’t give a damn,’ is one of the top 10 movie lines of all time.” Evaluating more than 400 entries, Marshall has planned a festival that spans genres. There are romances, adventures, dramas, comedies. There is something for every viewer, she said. Marshall’s film favorites: Movie: “Singin’ in the Rain.” Actors: Gene Kelley and Joseph Gordon-Leavitt Actresses: Anne Hathaway and Emma Stone Director: Martin Scorcese

Why short films play an important role in the world of cinema

PHOTOS COURTESY OF ARTIST

LOCAL. “Look up in the Sky” will screen Oct. 8.

By Zach Powers Special Correspondent

T

o the casual fan of independent film, the short film (aka ‘short’) can be an enigma. Five to 40-minute run times can fundamentally disrupt our paradigm of what qualifies as a “movie” and what may be more appropriately qualified as a “show” or even a “sketch.” However, to classify short films as the latter would be to tragically devalue one of the world’s premier artistic mediums. To fully understand the appeal and functionality of short films and why they are screened en masse at local, national and international film festivals, a bit of context may be helpful. Shorts function in the cinema business like demos and EPs do in the world of music. Just as the cost of recording a

12-song album may be too great for an upand-coming band to pay for themselves, the cost of creating a feature length film can be far too much for an up-and-coming director and crew. Thus, shorts are often created by filmmakers who are looking to prove themselves to studios, individual donors (a growing pillar of indie film) and producers. Film festivals have become the ideal venue for short films largely because they are so often congregation sites for film industry representatives as well as indie cinema fans eager to discover for themselves the next great film director, writer, cinematographer or actor. The cost (which manifests in equipment, salaries, set designs, permits, travel, etc.) may prevent relatively unknown directors from creating high-finish level feature films. Nonetheless, many resourceful filmmakers are able to generate the funds, tools and services needed to create shorts with finish levels similar to your favorite indie features. Storytelling is at a premium when it comes to shorts. Naturally, with less runtime to work with the writers and directors of shorts must approach their stories with extreme earnest. There is no less of a prerequisite to develop characters, create emotional moods, and (usually) adhere to the “five step” story model (exposition, rising action, climax, falling action, resolution). This might seem like a near impossible task to accomplish in 10 minutes, yet a great short film rarely feels rushed. If you’ve had the opportunity to peruse the 2013 Tacoma Film Festival program, you’ve likely noticed that more than half of the 123 selected films are shorts. Like most festivals, we’ll show our shorts in collections of 4-7 at a time and we’ve grouped them according to genre, style and origin. If you’ve never been to a screening of short films, we hope that you’ll consider changing that this next week during the Tacoma Film Festival. For the admission price of just one screening, you’ll be exposed to many filmmakers, stories and styles and you may be introduced to your new favorite filmmaker. This year’s Tacoma Film Festival short film collections are “International Shorts,” “Science Fiction Shorts,” “Comedy Shorts,” “Late Night Shorts,” “Animated Shorts,” “Documentary Shorts,” “Drama Shorts,” “253Film Shorts” and “Northwest Shorts.” For times and locations, please visit TacomaFilmFestival.com.

Local colleges add access, energy to Tacoma Film Festival By Zach Powers Special Correspondent

E

ach year since its debut in 2006 the Tacoma Film Festival (TFF) has expanded and further developed its programming. Notable additions to this year’s festival are Tacoma Community College (TCC) and the University of Puget Sound (UPS) as official TFF venues. Each institution will host a series of screenings on one day during the festival. TCC will host four screenings on Friday, Oct. 4. UPS will host three screenings on Monday, Oct. 7. The majority of the screenings at the two new venues will combine one or two short films and a feature film. The two colleges join five other TFF venues including the University of Washington Tacoma (UWT), which has hosted screenings since 2009. UWT will host screenings on Tuesday, Oct. 8. The other four TFF venues are The Grand Cinema, Annie Wright School, Tacoma Art Museum, and Museum of Glass. TFF organizers sought out the two institutions hoping to connect more students to the festival and also because recent collaborations between local art-house The Grand Cinema (whose staff plan and run TFF) and the two schools have been very successful. “We work with various departments and staff from both UPS, TCC, and most of the other higher (education) institutions in greater Tacoma throughout the year,” explained Tacoma Film Festival Director Laura Marshall. “When we decided on the goal of adding additional higher education venues to the festival, these were the two that made the most sense based on the past enthusiasm with which they’ve approached our events in recent history,” Marshall continued. Both institutions jumped at the opportuni-

ty to welcome TFF to their campuses. “We’re really excited about the new opportunity,” said UPS Chaplain and Director of Spirituality, Service, & Social Justice Dr. David Wright. “We are continuously working to encourage our students to make connections with the larger Tacoma community and TFF is a great vehicle with which to do that.” Both UPS and TCC staff and students worked with TFF organizers to select films for campus screenings that would appeal to a college audience and also add to themes and dialogues already being explored this school year. “We were really thrilled that we were able to line up film content with some of our ongoing campus conversations,” explained Wright. “The films we chose are great complements to our co- curricular and curricular activities.” UPS and TCC will both screen featurelength documentaries as well as fictional films. TCC’s line-up is led by the local documentary “Bible Quiz,” the Seattle hip-hop documentary “The Otherside” and the coming-of-age comedy “Zero Charisma.” UPS’s two most high profile features are the powerful documentaries, “Remote Area Medical” and “A River Changes Course” (a film from Cambodia). UWT will screen two documentaries, “Evergreen: The Road to Legalization” and “DSKNECTD.” All three higher education venues worked with TFF organizers to set prices that would ensure access to all of their students. Admission to screenings at TCC will be just $2 for students, staff and faculty with TCC ID. At UPS admission will be free to all students with ID. And at UWT, admission will be free to the entire public. Student tickets to any screening at TFF are just $6 with ID.

Teaching your children good oral hygiene now, makes for a healthier future Help your kids form good habits that will serve them a lifetime What chronic disease affects more than 40% of kindergarten-age children? No, it’s not asthma and it’s not hay fever. The answer is tooth decay. In fact, despite being largely preventable, tooth decay is one of the most widespread chronic childhood diseases in America. So how can you help? By helping your kids form strong oral health habits at a young age. Your new Bright Now! Dental office in Lakewood (on Gravelly Lake Drive SW) knows it’s hard to get kids excited about oral hygiene, but they are available to help. By following these three simple tips, you can help your child develop healthy habits that last a lifetime.

Start early: Experts recommend that brushing begin as early as six months, or as soon as your child’s first tooth appears. Be sure to use a soft bristle brush and just a touch of toothpaste to prevent them from swallowing any of it. Before your child reaches a year old, bring them by a Bright Now! Dental office for their first visit. You can find Bright Now! Dental in Lakewood, Tacoma, Puyallup and throughout the Pacific Northwest. Starting early not only gives your child a healthier smile, it will also get them accustomed to daily oral care and regular dental visits. Get your child involved: As your child gets older, look for ways to get them involved in their oral health. This can be as simple as letting them pick out their own toothbrush and toothpaste. Be sure to prescreen their selection, making sure the toothbrush is soft bristled and ADA approved, and that the toothpaste is safe for their age. When you feel it is appropriate, let them try their hand at brushing on their own. Although a three-year-old may not have the fine motor skills to properly brush his or her own teeth, you can let them practice and help them finish up the areas they miss. Set a timer: Dentists recommend brushing last at least two minutes. For children who don’t enjoy brushing their teeth, this can seem like an eternity. By using a simple timer, children can see the seconds race by and know that the interruption from their playtime is almost over. Some toothbrushes even come with a built-in timer, or play a song so your child will know how long to brush. Proper oral hygiene is one of the most important things you can teach your child. By helping them form good habits while they’re young, you’ll help ensure they have a lasting and healthy smile. After all, a great smile is one of the best gifts a parent can give.

Celebration of western & wildlife art delivers kindness, generosity and humor By Kathleen Merryman www.tacomaweekly.com

red Oldf ield spoke to Mark and Erin Wheeler before they knew they were listening. They had never owned an original oil painting, and had never thought of themselves as art collectors. Then, on a visit to The Western Washington Fair four years ago, they strolled through the Fred Oldfield Western Heritage & Art Center at the Red Gate and saw “The Last Weary Mile.” The image of the man walking his horse toward a cabin in the snow struck them in a way no painting ever had. They were newly wed. They had met in a country bar and were drawn to country music and, in that instant, Western art. He’s a truck driver. She works in a bank. They are not rich, and yet the painting kept calling them to drive to Tacoma from their farmhouse in Everett. A year later, they asked Oldfield if they could buy it. “He wouldn’t sell it, because it was his wife’s favorite,” Mark Wheeler said. Oldfield’s wife, Alice, had died in 2001, and he would not part with the painting. But he would make

War II, he took his blind cousin to a bar for a drink in Toppenish, where the police arrested them both for laughing too much. He had it coming. Oldfield is a man of endurance, optimism, a hearty sense of humor and an extra measure of kindness. This year, at the Washington State Fair, the Wheel-

ers learned one new thing about Fred Oldfield: He’s still a man of modest means, because he gives so much of his work to support charities’ good works. He’s auctioned paintings and sold prints to support kidney disease research, Emergency Food Network, the Fair’s scholarships. He figures he’s given about half a million dol-

lars that way. People who’ve counted put the figure at close to $1 million. It was a scholarship that brought the Wheelers back. Erin’s daughter, who loved school, especially Washington State University, died after a car crash early this year. They wanted to make a gift to honor her memory. At the fair this year, Oldfield put a painting up for silent auction to benefit the scholarship fund. This, the Wheelers decided, would have pleased Stephanie. “Not only could we have a painting, but we could be a part of something bigger,” Mark said of their decision to bid high enough to send a student to college for a year. This weekend, Fred Oldfield will be up to his generous tricks again. He is the star, the warm heart at the center of the annual Celebration of Western & Wildlife Art Show & Sale he and his daughter Joella stage at the Puyallup fairgrounds. The show opens Friday, with free parking and free admission all weekend. Friday and Saturday evening will feature a reception, live music, a silent auction, a one-hour quick draw and auctioneer Steve Mitzner charming the restraints off of credit cards in a live auction. That’s the money part. Artists need money. The element that sets this show apart is the warmth. Artists delight in answering questions, talking about their work and hearing about what the people they’ve met at previous shows have been up to. Artists tell about the causes they’ve been supporting, including teaching kids about art at the Oldfield Center. This is a show of hugs, remembered names, kidding, and lots of laughter. It’s a show tailor-made for people who, like the Wheelers, listen to the chord art strikes in their hearts.

THAT VOICE. Could Tacoma singer Stephanie Johnson claim the top spot on NBC-TV’s “The Voice?” By Ernest A. Jasmin ejasmin@tacomaweekly.com

T

acoma’s Vicci Martinez was a fan favorite and critical darling on “The Voice” in 2011, going on to finish second on the debut season of NBC-TV’s hit talent search. But could one of her Stadium High School classmates go one step further and take top honors on this year’s season five? Tacoma singer-songwriter Stephanie Anne Johnson’s fans knew she had tried out for the show, and social media was abuzz with speculation on when and for how long she might show. She finally made her debut on Tuesday night’s episode as celebrity judges CeeLo Green, Christina Aguilera, Adam Levine and Blake Shelton continued to fill out this year’s teams. During her interview segment, fans learned of her eclectic music upbringing, her classical training and of the soul searching she did following her stint at Pacific Lutheran University.

“After college, I had no idea what to do,” the PLU alumnus said during her interview segment. “I was working in a day care, and I just wanted to sing. So I got a job working on a cruise ship in Alaska.” She’s seen performing her lounge act and getting some encouraging words from her grandma before the moment of truth. “In the last three years I’ve given a thousand different performances in a bunch of different countries,” Johnson said. “But none of them compare to what’s about to happen today.” Johnson chose to perform K.T. Tunstall’s “Black Horses & The Cherry Tree” for her blind audition, strutting around stage and looking maybe a little naked without the acoustic guitar her local fans are used to seeing her with. Green seemed most enthused with her performance; and, in a move that would prove to backfire, he encouraged Aguilera to join him in pushing the big, red button that would spin their chairs and reveal who they had been listening to. “You’re such a pleasant surprise. I can’t believe that was you singing that record,” Green declared. “I kind of saw Vicci Martinez from season one.” “I went to high school with her,” Johnson replied. That seemed to excite Green, who had been Martinez’s mentor on the show and who appears on “Come On,” the lead single from her major label debut, “Vicci.” “That’s what they call serendipity,” he said. “We got her to second place that first season, so maybe we can take you all the way to No. 1.” Though Green seemed to be Johnson’s biggest

booster, she decided to go in another direction. “You haven’t had a winner yet, and we’re gonna fix that,” she told Aguilera. In one of the episode’s funnier moments, CeeLo ripped his sunglasses off and seemed to give her the stink eye. It wasn’t obvious whether or not he was kidding. Viewers also saw local teen rocker Jason Kertson, singer-guitarist for Jason Kerts0n & the Immortals (as quoted in our recent coverage of Dream Fest 2013.) Kertsen worried that his grittier, rock vocal style would put him at a disadvantage in a pool of singers that skewed heavily toward R&B and country. He chose Hinder’s “Lips of an Angel,” and though his husky vocals piqued the judges’ interest, he failed to turn any chairs. “It makes me feel like less of a man to know there is a 16-year-old that sounds like more of a man than I ever will,” Maroon 5 front man Adam Levine joked. “Jason’s voice was so mature,” country star Blake Shelton added. “I thought we were gonna turn around and see this big, burly bearded guy up there singin’. ... There’s somethin’ special about that guy. I hope he comes back.” “The Voice” continues at 8 p.m. on Monday, though it’s not clear if Johnson will be featured on the next episode as judges finalize their teams. Johnson’s performance from Tuesday night, however, can be downloaded on iTunes. And local fans can next see her live on Oct. 5 at the Gig Spot, 6615 38th Avenue NW, in Gig Harbor. The show starts at 8 p.m., and tickets are $15; (253) 853-4188 for further details.

SUN., OCT. 6 RINGLING BROS., BARNUM & BAILEY Performances take place at 1 p.m. and 5 p.m. Ringling Bros. “Fully Charged” ringmaster, David Shipman, introduces audiences to an international cast of elite performers that generate eye-popping thrills. Electrodes of excitement explode off the arena floor starting with the Lopez Family and their trifecta of extraordinary performances includes knuckle-biting knife throwing, outrageous highwire stunts and synchronized mayhem inside the globe of steel! Ringling Bros. also welcomes Mongolian strongman Mr. Power along with dazzling Lady Lightning, award winning aerial gymnast Sergey Novikov of the Ukraine and the Vavilov Troupe, a six-man acrobatic troupe from Russia. It wouldn’t be The Greatest Show On Earth without showcasing epic Asian elephants, commanding camels, handsome hoof stock and a powerhouse of pups. Ringling Bros. is excited to announce the return of Anton, the eccentric comedian – in Fully Charged, Gold Edition – an unsuspecting energy-thief who attempts to disrupt the flow of circus power using his own mischievous antics. From fire juggling, drum playing, tap dancing to trampoline tumbling, will this spotlightstealer rewire his ways and repower the circus? Info: www.ringling.com/. ShoWare Center is located at 625 W. James St. in Kent.

MON., OCT. 7 CAR SAFETY This free car safety and comfort event for adult drivers is taking place at Weyerhaeuser Hall at University of Puget Sound starting at 10 a.m. Most people depend on their shoes to help them get around comfortably and safely, so would they wear ones that didn’t fit? Not likely. We may not think of ourselves as “wearing” our cars, but the same idea of “fit” applies, and there are adjustments we can make to improve our driving comfort and safety. A free, national program called Carfit can help you make adjustments in your car that will maintain the vehicle’s safety and operability. Sponsored by AARP, AAA, the American Society on Aging, and American Occupational Therapy Association (AOTA), the program helps keep older drivers behind the wheel for longer. Last year, the CarFit event offered by the School of Occupational Therapy at Puget Sound helped 25 drivers tailor their personal fit within their vehicles. Participants said it was valuable to learn how to modify the mirror for improved viewing, position their seat to prevent unnecessary air-bag trauma, and make adaptations to improve their ability to get in and out of the vehicle. Info: www.pugetsound.edu/academics/departments-and-programs/graduate/school-ofoccupational-therapy/carfit/. Weyerhaeuser Hall is located at N. 11th St. and N. Lawrence St. in Tacoma.
