Area rallies to state its case for SR 167



SR 167. The extension of State

STUFF. Safety Day volunteers help sort a hoarded household back to habitability.




By Kathleen Merryman For a hoarder, it’s not enough to get rid of the stuff. The stuff is not the problem. It is the debilitating, and occasionally fatal, symptom of what, as of May, has been recognized as a psychiatric diagnosis. “It’s very clear that hoarding is a mental health issue,” said Jennifer Sampson, Ph.D. “Just going in and cleaning out the home is not effective.” Hoarding is one of the few mental health issues in which treatment will likely involve therapy, personal support, a dumpster, a landlord, a building code enforcement officer. It’s also likely that, without ongoing care, the patient will be in just as much trouble again within six months- if he or she survives that long. The Hoarding Project is Western Washington’s first comprehensive effort to improve the odds and outcomes for hoarders. The non-profit has two bases nationwide, one in St. Paul, Minn., and one at Sampson’s offices at 621 Pacific Ave. A licensed marriage and family therapist, Sampson researched hoarding behavior at Seattle Pacific University and the University of Minnesota, all while national experts were understanding that it’s an illness with roots in biology, psychology and experience. She co-founded and chairs The Hoarding Project, and is co-founder and chair of the King/Pierce County Hoarding Task Force. Vicki Hoggard cannot overstate how grateful she is for the new resource. Hoggard works with Pierce County

Local politicos and business boosters rallied last week to show their support for efforts to find funding to construct the last “critical mile” of State Route 167 that would finally connect the Puyallup Valley’s warehouse centers to shipping operations at the Port of Tacoma. The road was first envisioned more than 40 years ago, but has never been fully funded. Elected officials from around Pierce County made their case at a forum last week in Tacoma that drew more than 300 people, including a group of state lawmakers who organized it in an effort to develop a roster of transportation packages around Washington that could be funded through a statewide transportation package. Sen. Bruce Dammeier, R-25th District, was among the 17 legislators at the meeting and heard testimony from 74 local citizens and public officials, many of whom shared concerns and frustrations about the 40-year delay in completing State Route 167 in Pierce County. “I was not surprised to hear people say we have a transportation crisis on our hands – because we do,” Dammeier said.

Adult Protective Services. “We get a lot of referrals for people who are hoarders,” she said. “I’m so scared of hoarders because I don’t know how to help these people when they come through APS.” Some can’t return home from a hospital stay because a caseworker has found that accumulated stuff has taken X See HOARDING / page A10

THE HOARDING PROJECT QUIZ Are areas of your home hard to walk through because of clutter? Are you unable to use any parts of your home for their intended purposes? For example: Cooking, using furniture, bathing, washing dishes, sleeping in bed. Do you find the act of throwing away or donating things very upsetting? Do you have strong urges to buy or collect free things for which you have no immediate use? Have you ever been in an argument with a loved one because of the clutter in your home? (If you answered yes to three of more of these questions, you may have a problem with hoarding. Find out more at

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

The 1959 Corvette is almost identical to its older sibling from the previous production line. The few changes included a toned-down styling on the front and rear design and less chrome running through the car when compared to the 1958 model. The instrument panel changed a bit, with the gauge glass convexed to reduce the glare problem that riders reported in previous years. All tachometers offered redline and â&#x20AC;&#x153;safe limitâ&#x20AC;? indicators in an effort to save drivers from blown engines during zippy Saturday drives. The 1959 model also added a small storage bin next to the door grab handles. The base model Corvette was a three-speed manual transmission, but a T-shift, four speed was optional for an additional $188.30. The shifter required the driver to pull the stick up to shift into reverse as a way to prevent


reverse-gear engagement while shifting the forward gears. Chevrolet also began offering a black interior in its Corvette in 1959. Some 9,670 Corvettes were made that year and they sold for a base price of $3,875. They offered a 230-horsepower engine and convertible. Engine

Abusers are not always the good guys they appear to be By David Rose Correspondent

Half the women murdered in Washington State are killed by their current or former partner. On April 26, 2003, while Crystal Judson and Tacoma Police Chief David Brame were in DAVID ROSE the middle of a bitter divorce, he fatally shot her, then killed himself in front of their two young children.

;67:;690,:65 [HJVTH^LLRS`JVT





“She’s this beautiful woman and he’s the chief of police and they live in this beautiful home – how could this possibly happen?” former prosecuting attorney Susan Adams asked. Adams worked with the city of Tacoma and Pierce County to create the Crystal Judson Family Justice Center ( It provides shelter, food and counseling to domestic violence victims, and offers legal help filing protection orders and finding financial services and housing. Washington’s Most Wanted correspondent Dana Rebik visited the center and met a client who left her abusive husband one year ago. “I was raped. I was pushed down stairs. I had a machete held to my body. He threatened to slice my hands off and told me if I ever crossed him he would finish the fight and bury me dead in the back yard,” said the victim. As in Judson’s case, this



woman’s abuser appeared to be a perfect husband. He tried to act like a pillar of the community. He was a very friendly neighbor, always willing to help. “It’s very frightening and not what you imagine an abuser to be,” said the victim. This is why the Judson Center director says it’s so important to reach out to friends and family who may be in a bad situation. “When you find you’ve encountered someone who might be a victim, knowing what to say is crucial: ‘I’m afraid for your safety; you

don`t deserve to be abused; I’m afraid for your children,’” said Adams. “If we don’t, as a community, support the victims in a time of need, this will continue to perpetuate.” This report is part of Washington’s Most Wanted’s month-long Domestic Violence Crackdown.

and safely trick or treat from vehicle trunks. There will be hot spiced cider and cocoa, a bonfire, costume contest and special guests. Organizers are looking for individuals and groups interested in providing and “manning” trunks, which can be cars, vans or pickup trucks. There will be a prize for the best trunk (along with a prize for best costume). Also needed are businesses to consider becoming a spon-

sor of this annual Halloween event by donating goods and services. Items gladly accepted include, but are not limited to, instant spiced cider mix, instant hot chocolate mix, cups, napkins, individually wrapped candies, bottled water, gift cards and prizes. The Hilltop Action Coalition is a not for profit 501(c) (3) organization, therefore, donations are tax-deductible. For reference, the EIN is 20-8160894.

It is a story as old as time. Parents have likely been telling their children to turn down their music since cave dwellers beat sticks and stones together. This ageless tale played out along the 6400 block of Sixth Avenue on Oct. 11 when a mother advised her son to turn down the volume of his iPod. As 15-year-old boys are oft to do, he refused. And refused again. Oh, and again. He was given fair warning. The take-no-crap mother decided to take the opportunity to make the situation a “teaching moment.” She pulled the car over, went to her son’s side of the car and took the iPod from his hands. He didn’t learn the lesson that she was not in the mood for his tantrums. He scratched and pushed her several times. She didn’t back down. She called the police and had him arrested for fourthdegree assault. He was handcuffed and taken to Remann Hall. A long-time hooker in the hood might want to visit a law library to brush up on the legal standing of her particular trade. The 47-year-old woman found herself under arrest, again, after she negotiated to have oral relations with a passerby for $22 while parked in a car along the 8000 block of Pacific Avenue. The discount rate was apparently some sort of “early bird” special since it was only 3:30 p.m. The police officer spotted the love seekers and questioned them about their romance. The man admitted to paying the fine lady of the night but said he had not yet received her nocturnal services. The woman argued with the police officer that since she had not provided the services upon payment, no crime was committed and therefore she should be released post haste. The officer gave her steel bracelets and took her to jail instead. She might call Sal. (Breaking Bad fan, you are welcome.) Compiled by Steve Dunkelberger

ELECTION â&#x20AC;&#x2122;13

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



obert Thoms and Patricia LecyDavis are campaigning for Position #2 on the Tacoma City Coucil, which represents downtown and North Tacoma. The election is Nov. 5. Their written responses are unedited.

Robert Thoms

(incumbent by council appointment) What neighborhood issues do you see as your top concerns for your district and what plans do you have to champion them? I have worked extensively with all my Districtâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s fantastic neighborhood councils â&#x20AC;&#x201C; North End, Northeast Tacoma, and New Tacoma â&#x20AC;&#x201C; to bring voice and leadership to their concerns. After doorbelling thousands of doors, Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve learned that Tacomansâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; concerns span from the block level to the city and beyond. In the Northeast, I most frequently hear about infrastructure and protection of the Northshore Golf Course. In the North End, the most frequently-cited concerns are road quality and public safety. Downtown, among both residents and businesses, there is great interest about planning for future growth. I have taken these concerns head-on. I spearheaded the creation of Tacomaâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s first Transportation Master Plan, and corresponding Transportation Commission, to develop a long-term, strategic plan for everything from roads to bicycle lanes to buses to regional transit infrastructure (e.g., Sound Transit and Amtrak). I lead an initiative to standardize speed limits in school zones, an important public safety measure I heard numerous times along with crosswalks. I championed the â&#x20AC;&#x153;local preferenceâ&#x20AC;? ordinance, supporting our Tacoma-owned businesses by including a â&#x20AC;&#x153;locality factorâ&#x20AC;? when the City awards contracts. I use my extensive experience to translate the concerns I hear from my constituents to lasting, effective processes and policies. What do you see as your role as a district council member in regards to city-wide issues, particularly if they are at odds? My leadership belief is a vision for all of Tacoma. I believe the challenges and opportunities usually require larger vision that isnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t district specific. Especially when promoting growing our economy and jobs, both vital for Tacomaâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s ability to succeed in the future. However, where there are issues very specific to District 2 (e.g., fighting to


protect Fire Station 13, or permits for business and UWT growth) I will always ensure District 2 is well-represented to receive the necessary attention and investments we deserve. I am proud of my businesses and neighborâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s leadership and ideas that support our entire City.

What experience and perspectives do you bring to the council and how do they match (or clash) with other members of the council? I have over 20 years of policy and leadership experience at the federal and state level. My experience and has proven extremely beneficial for Tacoma as I worked on issues like establishing the Family Justice Center, the Zina Linnick Project, the D-Street Overpass for commerce and reclamation of the Asarco Superfund site to Point Ruston. My proven leadership and close ties with JBLM allow me to enhance our Cityâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s ability to develop successful partnerships and regional economies. My vision for Tacoma is to be more strategic, more visionary as we grow, protect our quality of life and realize our potential. What lessons do you think â&#x20AC;&#x153;Tacoma Governmentâ&#x20AC;? has learned from the recent budget struggles and how are those lessons going to benefit the city in the future? During my 20 years in the Navy, Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve had the opportunity to manage large budgets and personnel. It has always been my belief that transparency drives better decisions. In the last two years, Tacoma has engaged in the most transparent discussion of our budget in the history of Tacoma. I believe this process has allowed both the Council and citizens to have a better understanding of the budgetary challenges we face. As we embark upon the next biennium budget, the lessons over the last 24 months have given us a foundation to engage our citizens in prioritizing our budget. My first strategy for addressing our budget is to grow our economy. Thus far, in 2013, we have seen an increase in our economy; I want to continue to implement policies that allow us to move beyond past stagnancy (2 percent growth over the decade) and continue the recent trend of economic progress. What else should voters know about you? As Commander in the Navy, I have lived and worked all over the world and I chose

Tacoma as the place to raise my family. I believe Tacoma is a place of incredible opportunity. We are blessed with a beautiful natural location and active civic community. We must be more strategic in leveraging our incredible advantages: that requires ambitious goals. I have already called upon my decades of policy experience, including serving as State Deputy Director for Senator Cantwell, to forge ahead on world-class education, transportation infrastructure, public safety and greater growth for Tacoma. Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m eager to continue this work.

Patricia Lecy-Davis

What neighborhood issues do you see as your top concerns for your district and what plans do you have to champion them? The City Council needs to do much more to support and drive economic development. First, we need to map Tacomaâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s assets, identify the gaps and overlaps, leverage our learning institutions urban studies and entrepreneurial programs to help us develop complimentary industries and build a strong local economy. Furthermore, we have many unique neighborhoods and by connecting them to our business districts and to our downtown core, we can foster economic growth through support of our 7000+ local independently owned businesses. We should support Public Safety by committing new revenue from growth to fully fund police and fire services because we cannot continue to rely on federal grants to fill stopgap budget shortfalls. Healthy vibrant neighborhoods help mitigate the safety issues organically. Also, if we are keeping more of our money here by supporting local businesses we have more in the budget to support Fire and Police. Bridging Education to Employment by partnering with businesses and educational organizations will strengthen internships, apprenticeships, and foster entrepreneurship. What do you see as your role as a district council member in regards to city-wide issues, particularly if they are at odds? The first job of a Councilmember is to be a good representative of their District, but be able to also steward the priorities of the entire City. The City Council deals



with many issues that are City-Wide, like responding to constituents on roads, business permitting, and public safety concerns, but there are definitely issues unique to District 2 as it has the most diverse constituency of all of Tacoma. With highend neighborhoods, four business districts, downtown core, and industrial port, itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s important that District 2 residents have their voices heard in selecting their next Councilmember.

What experience and perspectives do you bring to the council and how do they match (or clash) with other members of the council? I have experience as a business owner, and know first hand what it takes to start, maintain and grow a business in Tacoma. I have also been a leader in the business community as co-founder of Go Local Tacoma and past president of the Downtown Merchantâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Group. I have been working strategically and collaboratively with and for community organizations on city issues for years and have the experience to deliver results to our residents. Lastly, having a Councilmember that experiences writing payroll checks is of great value. What lessons do you think â&#x20AC;&#x153;Tacoma Governmentâ&#x20AC;? has learned from the recent budget struggles and how are those lessons going to benefit the city in the future? Tacoma has gone through several rounds of painful budget cuts in the past few years. The most recent cuts in 2012 were preceded by an extensive community outreach campaign to solicit input form the public. I believe that this was an important exercise for the City Council, learning that engaging the community is the best way to govern, particularly when asking for tough choices from our residents and employees. Another important lesson is that while it is important to look for creative funding sources wherever we can find them, we cannot continue to rely on Federal Grants to fund based public safety services. We need to build our local businesses fabric and grow revenue that circulates here to support the level of service we expect and deserve. What else should voters know about you? I am a strategic thinker with process capabilities. I am committed to building and nurturing a strong collaborative culture in City government and in the community. I believe that if we can muster up the self esteem and discard our territorialism long enough to craft a â&#x20AC;&#x153;shared visionâ&#x20AC;?, Tacoma can take itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s place as the jewel in the crown we call the South Sound region.

Incumbent Lonergan faces Diaz for Tacoma City Council


oe Lonergan and Olgy Diaz are campaigning for the Position #5 seat on the Tacoma City Council that represents South Tacoma neighborhoods. The election is Nov. 5. Their written responses are unedited.

am able to help my fellow council members see the benefits and impacts of what we do and a county and state-wide level. While we are each individually different, the presence of our varied experiences and backgrounds allows us to make more thorough decisions.

Joe Lonergan (incumbent)

What neighborhood issues do you see as your top concerns for your district and what plans do you have to champion them? Roads, public safety and economic development issues continue to be top priorities for the people South of 56th and for me. I have and will continue to push to mitigate impacts on these things while providing a responsibly balanced budget. In this past budget cycle, I fought to make sure we maintained our Community Liason and School Resource Police Officers and supported a transition that allowed Fire Stations 13 and 15 to remain open. The need is great and our resources are stretched, but I continue to successfully advocate for repair and replacement of the residential streets that dramatically impact our neighborhoods. On the transit side, the completion of the Sounder Train has helped some, but a receding Pierce Transit system is hurting our neighbors. Four years ago, neighbors told me that the closure of Mega Foods and Red Apple had left them without a nearby place to get groceries. Today the Farmers Market, Grocery Outlet and Winco fill that gap. I am proud of those developments and I continue to work regularly with our Community and Economic Development Department to identify further opportunities for economic and job growth throughout the city and specifically in the Fifth District.

What lessons do you think â&#x20AC;&#x153;Tacoma Governmentâ&#x20AC;? has learned from the recent budget struggles and how are those lessons going to benefit the city in the future? We have learned that change is not comfortable, but is possible. We have refined the methods that we use to look at and measure service delivery to further strengthen our evaluation of city efficiency and effectiveness. During the budget process, I committed to working with the mayor on establishing a taskforce to look at various budget issues. Early this year we established the Fiscal Sustainability Taskforce composed of citizens, community groups, businesses and labor partners to evaluate and make recommendations on ways to move forward with policies that will help us avoid similar struggles going forward. We are keenly aware of the importance of savings which helped us delay and mitigate cuts for the first years of the recession and have revised reserve fund guidelines. We are still facing projected challenges in the next budget cycle and we are actively working to reduce and mitigate those by continuous evaluation of expenses and some great economic development successes such as State Farm downtown and Bass Pro Shops in my district. I am confident that these lessons and policy changes together with our active and aggressive business retention and attraction efforts, Tacoma will be on solid footing for years to come.

What do you see as your role as a district council member in regards to city-wide issues, particularly if they are at odds? I continually advocate for the Fifth District and making sure my colleagues understand the impact of decisions on the quality of life South of 56th Street. I also strive to be familiar with all parts of Tacoma and how issues impact them. When it came time to talk about extending the Link Light Rail system, it was a challenge just to get the maps to show the city South of the Tacoma Mall. Throughout that process I advocated for alternatives that were both viable and that could possibly see the $50 million-permile light rail reach the Fifth District one day.

What else should voters know about you? I grew up in Tacoma. I graduated from Tacoma Baptist and then EWU with a degree in Management and Marketing and a minor in Communications. After college, I worked with small businesses as an Advertising Account Executive. During that same time I was involved with community activities including my Neighborhood Council. Eleven years ago, my wife and I bought our home here in Tacoma. Today, I have two school-aged boys attending Tacoma Public Schools. I am deeply committed to the people of this city, as individuals, as members of my district, and as members of the city as a whole.

What experience and perspectives do you bring to the council and how do they match (or clash) with other members of the council? At this yearâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s council workshop we did an exercise that placed us on a continuum as to our decision-making styles. I stood alone among my colleagues as an analytical, big picture decision-maker. My big-picture perspective allows me to call attention to the impact of decisions on the city as a whole. I

Olgy Diaz

What neighborhood issues do you see as your top concerns for your dis-

trict and what plans do you have to champion them? My district is home to some of Tacomaâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s lowest-income seniors and young families. It is essential that they have access to more services than other areas of the city, but, in many instances, they have less. I aim to bring more family wage jobs, street improvements and community resources to the fifth district. There is a current proposal under consideration that would require certain businesses provide paid sick time to their staff. I support this type of proposal because Tacomans deserve better work benefits, and many businesses may even see cost savings from greater staff retention and a healthier workforce. Economic development within my district helps improve public safety and community pride by ensuring less empty storefronts. However, it is not just about filling our vacancies with any company, it is about making sure incoming businesses bring in quality jobs. Making sure we have safe and walkable communities is a top priority I hear from voters often. Many students in my district walk to school and would benefit from streets that are safe. What do you see as your role as a district council member in regards to city-wide issues, particularly if they are at odds? As one of nine council members, and the only one elected solely by the people of district 5, I believe it is my duty to serve the members of my district first even though much of the councilâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s work is aimed citywide. My district features many of Tacomaâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s lowest income citizens, and I will support services, budgets and policies that help address their needs first. That said, the city looks at matters that affect many parts of the city and I plan to approach all issues pragmatically and thoughtfully. What experience and perspectives do you bring to the council and how do they match (or clash) with other members of the council? I currently serve on the City of Tacomaâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Human Rights Commission and work as a Legislative Assistant for State Representative David Sawyer. My day job includes serving as a community resource and relaying community concerns to David. I have firsthand experience working with state policies and hear the priorities of our local governments and organizations. As a social justice advocate, I support policies that give small businesses and South End/South Tacoma residents all they need to be strong and successful. I get along well with most of the current council and will work well with everyone project by project.



gles and how are those lessons going to benefit the city in the future? The city has made huge cuts to all areas of its budget in recent years due to the recent recession, including 217 jobs in the most recent 2013-14 budget. All of these cuts mean fewer road repairs and fewer services for a city filled with many people in greater need today than ever before. There have been some improvements like department restructures and select pay restoration for certain employees taking temporary salary reductions during leaner times. Going forward and planning for projected shortfalls, we should continue to look to the community for input (as was done leading up to the latest budget). It is important to balance the needs of the community with a longer term vision for future development. The first priority should be maintaining funding for projects that have a high return on investment as well as preserving jobs that maintain public safety, such as our police, fire departments and corrections. The council should expand the vision of our city to include improving not just downtown, but also the local business districts in every neighborhood. While economic development should start in downtown, there is no reason the council canâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t also look to the business districts. What else should voters know about you? Born at Madigan on JBLM and raised in Spanaway, I settled in the South End after college. My family came to the U.S. from Guatemala. If elected I would be Tacomaâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s first Latina councilmember. I am a first generation college graduate, earning dual bachelorâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s degrees in Latin American Studies and Womenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Studies from UW. I work as a legislative aide in the state House of Representatives and serve on Tacomaâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Human Rights Commission. I am also Vice President of the Pierce County Young Democrats and got my start in South Tacoma politics working to elect President Barack Obama in 2008.

CURTIS SUFFERS FIRST LOSS ON LATE GOALS Foss tops Mount Tahoma in second half

WILSON OVERWHELMS MOUNT TAHOMA TO KEEP ROLLING Rams’ playmakers have big nights on the ground By Steve Mullen Correspondent


t the start of fall practice, Wilson head coach Don Clegg would sound a few alarm bells not heard around the north Tacoma campus in a long time. “We’re a little small this year along both interior lines and we’ll need some bodies to step up and take charge,” he would say. Whatever deficiencies that were talked about in August are no longer a concern, as the dean of Tacoma coaches saw his team use their great speed across the board to steamroll the Mount Tahoma Thunderbirds by a score of 78-6 on Oct. 11 at Mount Tahoma Stadium. Wilson maintained its hold on first place in the Narrows League 3A at 4-0, one game ahead of secondplace Lincoln. “We could not have played much better tonight, and we talked to the kids during the week, about not overlooking Mount Tahoma and it paid off,” said Clegg. The Rams started fast and kicked it into a higher gear early, as Isaiah Simpson found the endzone from 30 yards out on Wilson’s first play from scrimmage. From there they would proceed to score 30 first-quarter points and put the Thunderbirds on their heels for the rest of the night. Simpson would go on to amass 140 yards in the game, with three touchdowns. “Isaiah’s been doing that for us all year, he’s an elite back,” added Clegg. Julius Yates-Brown would add to the Wilson ground attack by leading the Rams on the night with 150 yards and three touchdowns, including a 70-yard scamper late in the second quarter just before the half to set up a touchdown. The Rams led 44-0 at the break. “Julius has been fantastic running the offense for us, he’s made great decisions all season long,” said Clegg. The third quarter and the second half in general would see liberal substitutions for the Rams, and Mount Tahoma would dent the scoreboard with 4:28 to go in the game when running back Greg Williams would scamper 25 yards for a score. With this week wrapped up, Clegg and his team turned their thoughts to a tough and improved Foss team at Stadium Bowl. “(Foss head coach) Pat (Johnson) has done a great job this year, and this will be another big game,” he said. “We’ll remind the kids about the importance of this game at hand, and don’t think about Lincoln until the week of Oct. 25. We’ll have our work cut out for us the next two weeks.”

The Curtis girls soccer team has lived with a target on its back all season after advancing to the state quarterfinals last year. Unbeaten through nine league matches and sitting alone in first place, the Vikings couldn’t maintain their momentum against Todd Beamer, surrendering two late goals to fall 2-0 to the Titans on Oct. 10. “We didn’t take advantage of our opportunities tonight,” said Curtis head coach Frank Hankel. “The small things make big differences, and we saw that tonight. The girls have to understand that. Despite being in first right now, we can’t let our foot off the gas pedal. Everybody wants to win the league, and everybody is gunning for us right now.” The Vikings had several golden opportunities to strike on the night, none better than in the 27th minute. Sophomore forward Morgan Weaver tracked down a long through pass from Maddy Parry on the left sideline and found an open Meghan Hillis in front of the box, but Hillis’ shot sailed just over goal. The teams went to the half scoreless, as Vikings keeper Sierra Miller recorded several solid saves to keep Curtis level. Curtis continued to test Todd Beamer keeper Casey Woerhle early in the second half, but the Titans senior stepped up to deflect shots by Lexsi Manning in the 43rd minute and Taylor Currin in the 59th minute. Amanda Ellinghaus nearly put the Vikings ahead in the 63rd minute, leaping for a header in front of goal off Manning’s cross, but Woerhle deflected it over goal. The Titans struck in the 76th minute on senior Megan Anderson’s header off a corner kick, and freshman Ameera Hussen caught Curtis’ defense with a counterattack goal four minutes later to seal it. “When you get a lot of attention, and you have a young team like we do, sometimes you need something to humble them,” Hankel said. “My hope is we look at this game and we say ‘Gosh, we don’t want this again.’” The Vikings responded with a 1-0 win over Emerald Ridge on Oct. 15 to remain in first in the SPSL 4A South.

Casey and Bryanna Slattery have an opportunity that few others enjoy. With Tacoma Baptist once again deciding not to field a girls soccer team, the twin siblings are sharing the pitch for the second straight season on the boys squad and helping march the team toward the playoffs. “We work really well together,” said Bryanna Slattery, who has scored four goals and added five assists for the Crusaders this year. “We communicate really well on the field. Passing-wise, we know where each other is going to go.” But the duo makes up just a portion of the playmakers for the high-flying Crusaders, who were at it again on Oct. 10. Casey

Slattery notched a hat trick on the way to an 8-0 win over Mount Rainier Lutheran at Fort Steilacoom Park, getting the Crusaders on the board in the 12th minute after stealing a ball in the box and driving in a low shot. He then sent a nice through ball to freshman Seth Talen for a goal four minutes later to make it 2-0. Senior Austin Lutterloh essentially put the game away before halftime, taking a pass on the right side in the 30th minute and scoring to make it 3-0. “We have a good passing game,” Lutterloh said. “As soon as we get our passing game going and get comfortable, that’s when the goals start coming.” But the Crusaders didn’t let up, as Corbett Cruver stole a ball near midfield a minute after halftime, and scored after a

nice give-and-go with Casey Slattery. “We try to keep the starters, at least the core, in to keep the flow moving so that we’re not just throwing everyone in the mix in random spots,” said Slattery, who is the 2B state leader with 32 goals and 19 assists. Talen added his second goal in the 50th minute, driving a shot from the left sideline over the keeper, and Abel Smith followed with a goal a minute later to make it 6-0. Casey Slattery then added his second and third goals in quick succession, the first off of a nice through pass from Talen in the 54th minute. But for the Crusaders – who feature a blend of experience and youth, including five senior captains – the familiarity extends beyond family ties.

“We all know each other,” said senior defender Alex Teobaldo. “We know how we’re going to play. We know how we’re going to react to certain situations. It gives a better feeling on the field.” Tacoma Baptist moved to 10-2-1 overall on the year, but followed it up with a 2-1 loss to third-ranked Mount Vernon Christian on Oct. 12. After advancing to the state quarterfinals the past three years, the Crusaders’ veterans believe the team is ready to take the next step this postseason. “As captains of the team I think it’s time to step it up,” said senior keeper Ben Cooksley, who was credited with his fifth shutout of the season against Mount Rainier Lutheran. “We’re really hungry to get farther. We’re ready for the competition, and we’re excited to see what happens.”

OVERHAND SLAMS. Annie Wright senior Tori Smith (left), who had four aces against The Northwest School, delivers a serve in the dominant win. The Gatorsâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; Lexi LeClech (middle) and Margaux Arntson (right) leap for kills against Northwest. By Jeremy Helling

The Annie Wright volleyball team has been in this situation before, but is motivated to make this season different. The Gatorsâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; early-season dominance is gaining attention, evidenced by their No. 1 ranking in the state in 1A by the coaches association. Steamrolling through the Emerald City League once again â&#x20AC;&#x201C; the latest episode being a 25-8, 25-10, 25-8 dispatching of The Northwest School on Oct. 9 â&#x20AC;&#x201C; the Gators are ignoring the rankings and remain focused on postseason success. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Coach always says â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;Donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t let (the attention) get to your head,â&#x20AC;&#x2122;â&#x20AC;? said senior outside hitter Margaux Arntson. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Last year we came out and had a perfect season and then lost our first game at state. I think a lot of that was all the expectations crashing

Gators a 7-0 lead, and they later went on a 9-0 run for a commanding 17-2 lead. Lexi LeClech, who finished with three kills, four aces and five digs, finished the game with an emphatic slam. Libero Maria Vipond added four aces in the span of six points to essentially close out the match, helping give the Gators a 19-6 lead in the third game. Arnston, Smith, LeClech and Vipond have teamed with setter Kaley Turner â&#x20AC;&#x201C; who had 10 assists against Northwest â&#x20AC;&#x201C; to give the Gators a solid core of returners, but a promising group of five freshmen has added energy to the squad as well. â&#x20AC;&#x153;It does help having a lot of girls knowing what theyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re doing, but itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s nice to have all the freshmen,â&#x20AC;? said Smith, noting the valuable playing time the younger players are getting. â&#x20AC;&#x153;They get really excited. Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s nice to have a few more opportunities for

on us. We thought we had it made. This year weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re really trying to stay humble and focus on what we need to do every game.â&#x20AC;? Arntson helped the Gators take control early against Northwest, collecting three of her five aces in the span of five points to help gain a 15-4 lead in the first game. Fellow senior lefty Tori Smith helped Annie Wright maintain a comfortable lead with three kills in the first game, ending it with a tip over the net. Arntson had 11 kills and four blocks in the match, while Smith added five kills. â&#x20AC;&#x153;They are our key,â&#x20AC;? said Annie Wright head coach Rodney Kalalau of Arntson and Smith. â&#x20AC;&#x153;How many teams do you see have big lefties that can play defense, that can play offense? Not often. Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m fortunate and lucky to have them.â&#x20AC;? Smith smashed three of her four aces early in the second game to help give the

Annie Wright moved to 7-0 in league play with the win, and will travel to take on Forest Ridge â&#x20AC;&#x201C; who the Gators held off in five sets earlier this year â&#x20AC;&#x201C; on Oct. 23 at 7 p.m. With postseason play fast approaching, and memories of last yearâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s disappointing first-round loss at state, the Gators certainly arenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t paying attention to their state ranking. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t like the rankings,â&#x20AC;? Kalalau said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t think these girls are even thinking about the rankings. Weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re just taking one game at a time, one point at a time and taking it from there.â&#x20AC;? And, should the opportunity to advance to the state meet arise again, what will be the key to going farther? â&#x20AC;&#x153;Just rising to the occasion,â&#x20AC;? Smith said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Just being able to push through.â&#x20AC;?

But the Falcons strung together their second straight solid performance on Oct. 15, rallying for two second-half goals for a 2-0 win at Mount Tahoma. â&#x20AC;&#x153;They stick with it,â&#x20AC;?

we just have to manufacture the goal,â&#x20AC;? Kramer said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Wherever youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re at, know where our strong players are, and be aware where you need to make your runs.â&#x20AC;? Junior Sara Santana had a couple of chances to strike early for Foss, but Thunderbirds keeper Nina Thach deflected her shots in the second and 15th minutes. Thach came up big again late in the half, charging up to block a shot from Jennifer Dittell in the top of the box in the 35th minute. The Thunderbirds had a golden opportunity to dent the scoreboard in the 49th minute when sophomore

Jalissa Somers got loose in the left corner, but her shot was deflected out by Foss freshman keeper Meagan Kamberger. The Falcons were spurred on by the return of all-league defender Jessica Orozco, while Kramer noted that senior captain Tyfanni Chin has continued to be solid in leading the defense. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We didnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t have our offensive punch, but our defense is solid now,â&#x20AC;? Kramer said. After posting a 2-0 shutout against Lincoln in their previous match, the Falcons moved to 2-4-1 in league to cling to

slim playoff hopes. Mount Tahoma dropped just below

Foss with a 2-5 record in league play.

Local Restaurants A NEW BREWERY EXPLORES OLD TERRITORY By Margo Greenman

After only a few short months, Narrows Brewing Company is already experimenting with some long-term goals. Head Brewer Joe Walts is exploring personally uncharted territory as he ventures into the world of barrel aged brewing. Running fullspeed ahead, this young craft brewery is trying its hand at this seemingly ancient but highly celebrated method of brewing with two exciting releases expected for 2014. Walts will be using wooden barrels sourced from Gig Harborâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Heritage Distilling Company and Lakewoodâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Stinaâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Cellars for the two unique brews. Up first is a strong British-style beer that he will ferment in wine barrels from Stinaâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Cellars. Using brettanomyces, Walts intends to give this beer a rustic character reminiscent of the aromas you might encounter stepping into an aged and weathered barn. Using the hybrid method of yore, in one yearâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s time Walts plans to combine this barrel aged British beer with a younger, spicier brew. The blended result will be a pumpkin style old ale. It wonâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t be until next season that craft

beer lovers will get to delight in this slowly crafted masterpiece, but the young British ale that doesnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t make it into the barrels will be available on draught at the Narrows Brewing Companyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s taproom as soon as the double India pale lager runs dry. Simultaneously in the works is a black saison. Using barrels from Heritage Distilling Company, Walts explains that the wood from these barrels will give the beer an oaky character, similar to the aromas and colors you find in whiskey. The barrel aged version may take anywhere from three months to one year to achieve fermented perfection, but the saison that doesnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t make it to the barrel will replace Narrows Brewingâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s stout. As the Pacific Northwest embraces this trending brewing method dating back hundreds of years, this young brewery hasnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t hesitated to jump in right there with the rest of them. Enjoying experimenting with different brewing styles, Walts explains that, â&#x20AC;&#x153;Narrows Brewing is always going to be doing adventurous things. We want to challenge ourselves.â&#x20AC;? This advantageous attitude mixed with Waltsâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; talented brewing

skills landed the brewery a silver medal earlier this summer at the Tacoma Craft Beer Festival for their Belgian Blonde. For more information on seasonal releases, events, brewery tours and more, visit A recent addition to Washingtonâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s craft brewing community, Narrows Brewing Company opened in July.

a common irony in hoarding cases, cleaning supplies and “storage solutions.” “They’re among our most commonly found items,” Sampson said of the totes and drawers and shelves. People who hoard know they have a problem, and they’d like to address it. But many of them also have associated problems, including obsessive compulsive disorder, depression, anxiety, organic brain disorder and, post traumatic stress and attention deficit disorder. And they have age. “Hoarding starts in childhood,” Sampson said. “You don’t notice it, because there tends to be someone around. Younger people tend to live with other people and have lots of transition and loss of belongings.” As people grow older, stay in the same place and get more things, the stuff piles into a symptom. The mental health issues, age and time can paralyze their attempts to sort themselves out of danger on their own. And it can kill them if other people force a cleanout. “One community did

forced clean-outs on three homes, and within a few weeks all three homeowners passed away,” Sampson said. “It’s a stressful day.” And it can be an expensive and futile one. “Clean-outs are ridiculously expensive,” Sampson said. “We have one house that is at $70,000. A home that took 10 years to hoard will, without mental health care, be at the same level within six months.” Because a forced clean-out will fail, task force members are working on a better way. It starts with therapy talking, listening and planning with the hoarder. Together, the therapist and patient plan a “Safety Day” aimed not at getting rid of everything, but at making the home safe for habitation. They identify the problem areas in the home and make a list of stuff that can be trashed, donated, recycled and kept. They can set aside some stuff to sort later. The therapist makes a plan, including all the people who will be working, what they will be doing and the equipment, from dumpsters to a shade tent to pickup trucks

“On top of unfinished and unfunded roadways, we have structurally deficient bridges all across the state, aging ferry boats and a significant amount of waste and mismanagement within WSDOT. Completing SR 167 is an example of investing in infrastructure that would drive economic growth and global competitiveness, in addition to reducing congestion and improving regional connectivity.” The Tacoma meeting was the third of 10 cities chosen for a statewide listening tour to gather input from Washington residents on transportation priorities. The completion of SR 167 would not only boost jobs in the South Sound by streamlining trucking routes between the Tideflats and distribution centers in the Puyallup Valley but also help control Interstate 5 gridlock by removing thousands of trucks from that roadway. Local transportation watchers saw the SR 167 funding on the state budget last ses-

for donations and recycling. The plan includes counselors who will stay with the resident all day and provide outlets for the patient to deal with stress. Saturday in Fife, most of the 20 volunteers worked out of sight from the most important members of their team. Those two counselors sat in a back room, comforting and reassuring the man whose home had become a symptom of his psychiatric disorder, and a peril to his health and safety. Mike Lillie directed volunteers from Pacific Lutheran University, county and nonprofit employees, therapists, even professional cleaners, as they worked from room to room. They sorted through papers in a desk, discarded past-date food in the kitchen, lugged pet-damaged furniture to the dumpster and scrubbed down the kitchen and baths.

sion, but it was ultimately removed. But it was the closest the effort has gotten in years in a campaign that is building political and business support for the $1.8 billion project. The roster of supporters includes regional legislators, local mayors, terminal operators, the Tacoma-Pierce County Chamber, the Tacoma Pierce County Association of Realtors, Citizens for a Healthy Bay and the Puyallup Tribe. “Our economic development at the Port of Tacoma is dependent on road investments,” said Puyallup Tribal Councilman David Bean. “Completion of 167 will create thousands of jobs that would benefit our tribal members.” Comments from transportation watchers around the state will be used to draft a legislative package during the next session. The working plan calls for increases in fuel taxes as well as new fees on shipping operations to raise an estimated $10 billion during the next 10 years for major infrastructure projects.

California and Florida that we’ve never beaten before, but we won seven straight. In the seven games we turned 11 double-plays.” The largest gathering of slow pitch players in the world assembled at the tournament in Vegas. In the 80-and-over bracket, there are 23 teams across the country. The top 13, which included Joeseppi’s, played in Las Vegas. Stortini said his team’s win makes the players feel like they’re back in high school again. “It’s the same thrill whether you’re 15 or 80.” This isn’t the first time Joeseppi’s has won the championship. They took the title in 2003 and 2008. “The other years, we’ve been either second or third,” Stortini said. “This (2013) is probably the most rewarding one at the age of 80. We still have that same desire to play, and I have to say we still have that same desire to win as we did when we were teenagers. It doesn’t really change.” The team received an impressive trophy and equally impressive World Series rings that look like those awarded in the major leagues. Both the City of Tacoma and Pierce County are expected to issue proclamations, a first for the Joeseppi’s team, acknowledging the honor the players brought home. A banquet will be held at the end of this month to celebrate the team. Special guests will include Mayor Marilyn Strickland, and writer/ columnist Dorothy Wilhelm will be the keynote speaker. Stortini said it’s a combination of the team being together for so long and the games they’ve played against guys in their 50s that give Joeseppi’s its winning edge. “The biggest advantage we have is we play in a league and it’s 55 and

older. We’re the 80-yearold team so we’re playing against what I call ‘the young guys,’” Stortini said. Joeseppi’s has a strong league record against “the young guys” at 27-26. “By playing against the younger guys we learned to get the ball in faster and move a little quicker. That’s been really beneficial to us.” Winning the 2013 world championship means a lot to Stortini personally. In addition to having made the achievement in his 80th year, it is yet another highlight of his long and admirable lifetime of being involved in sports. He played at Lincoln High School (class of 1951) and at University of Puget Sound (class of 1955) and started coaching as well in his early youth. “I enjoy playing, but I probably enjoy coaching more,” he said, noting with a chuckle that there’s a big difference between coaching his adult teammates and the youth. “I always have a parent who’ll complain about their kid not playing enough, but with our 80 and older (players) I’ve never had a parent complain about their son not playing. In fact, I’ve never had a parent at a game.” Perhaps Stortini’s most treasured sports memory is his time coaching allAmerican running back and wide receiver Ahmad Rashad (Bobby Moore), who once wrote a very speical message to Stortini. “The nicest compliment I ever got as a coach was from Ahmad Rashad when he was playing for the Minnesota Vikings. He said, ‘Coach Joe, thank you for teaching me the game of life.’ That was the nicest thing anyone could say.” Once softball season kicks back into gear in May, the public can see Stortini and his Joeseppi’s team play at their home field at Celebration Park in Federal Way.

Comedian Ian Harris will appear at CFI Summit at Hotel Murano on Oct. 24 then headline Grit City Comedy Club on Oct. 25 and 26.

By Ernest Jasmin



ike Mr. Spock, comedian Ian Harris puts his faith squarely in logic and reason. Unlike Spock, he has a robust sense of humor and impeccable timing. In fact, he’s carved out a niche with a skeptical style of standup that lampoons the things people believe with little or no scientific evidence: Sasquatch, conspiracy theories, religious dogma. His existential aesthetic earned him a slot performing at the Center for Inquiry’s CFI Summit, a gathering of skeptics, humanists and critical thinkers that will take over parts of Hotel Murano from Oct. 24-27. Harris will close out CFI’s opening night performing bits from his forthcoming TV special, “Critical & Thinking,” at 7 p.m. on Oct. 24. Then he’ll headline a

two-night stand at Grit City Comedy Club on Oct. 25 and 26. Tacoma Weekly gave the Los Angeles-based funnyman a call recently to find out what makes him tick. Tacoma Weekly: You’re involved with the Center for Inquiry conference. How did you get hooked up with those guys? Ian Harris: I’ve just been really big into that since I can remember, really. I’d taken some time off comedy to raise my kid; and when I came back to doing comedy I decided that I just wanted to do … something I was passionate about. So I started doing comedy that was, basically, about skepticism and beliefs. I started doing that and talking to these people who don’t have a voice. There’s 20 different ghost shows on, and not one of ‘em is a skeptics’ show. Every one of ‘em is, “Oh, ghosts exist.” TW: Don’t even get started with the Bigfoot shows. Harris: Yeah, absolutely. I have a 10-minute section about Bigfoot in my act. To me, those things are absolutely hilarious. They’re even more hilarious when you believe what I believe, and what comes with (disagreeing with) religion. There’s a lot of comedians that are atheist, agnostic, humanist or whatever you wanna call ‘em. But there’s not a ton of comics doing material that’s specifically for that group. You might get Jim Jeffries doing a joke or two (but) there’s not a ton of people speaking to this demographic. TW: There’s David Cross. Harris: He’s an atheist and he does some material. But, if you watch his act, it might be 10 minutes out of an hour. So my thought was … I’m gonna stop talking about my upbringing and stop doing impressions of Christopher Walken or whatever, and I’m gonna start talking about people’s beliefs and

religion and religiosity – things we take religiously. So I started doing that and am building a following with skeptics. I taped an hour special that is gonna air on a major cable network in January. I called it “Critical & Thinking,” and I did the entire hour on skepticism. I did it partially as a benefit for the Center For Inquiry here in Los Angeles, so we raised money for them. The last year, I’ve been doing tons and tons of these conventions that are centered around this sort of stuff because there’s just not anyone else out there. TW: I’ve seen clips of you doing a wide range of jokes and some really killer impressions. But it sounds like this has become the main focus of what you do. Harris: I was known for impressions for a long time. I do a lot of voiceover work, and I’ve done sketches on TV and sketches for Jimmy Kimmel – all these different things over the years. I still use that. I still do characters. When I talk about Bigfoot … I have a character who runs the Bigfoot museum. But I’ve steered away from doing just “here’s Christopher Walken buying ice cream.” TW: It seems as if today you have more things to make fun of than ever. Harris: I always try to make the point that what I talk about is skepticism or religiosity or what some people call magical thinking. The funny thing is the side effect of people becoming more secular or people becoming less religious (is) they get religious about other stuff. They get religious about “chemtrails” or they get religious about gluten allergies. They’re still not turning to science or scientific method. They’re just changing what they get religious about. So it’s actually created more and more new age stuff that is just as ridiculous.

THE THINGS WE LIKE ONE SHAKESPEARE’S STAR WARS “Shakespeare’s Star Wars: Verily, A New Hope” will be staged by Tacoma’s own Propbox Theatre Group at 3 p.m. on Saturday, Oct. 19 at the main branch of the Tacoma Public Library and again at 2 p.m. on Sunday, Oct. 20 at the Knights of Pythias Temple at 926 Broadway.

La Familia Valera Miranda, six musicians from the Oriente region of Cuba, will perform Cuban “Son” music at University of Puget Sound on Saturday, Oct. 26, at 7:30 p.m., just before

National Hispanic Heritage Month draws to a close. The concert will be in Kilworth Memorial Chapel. Oriente, near Haiti and Jamaica, is a region where the dominant musical form, son cubano, differs from that of the capital Havana. Son reflects Cuba’s Hispanic culture through its instruments: the guitar, double bass, and the tres, a guitar with three double strings. The music also reflects Cuba’s African heritage through the call and response style of the songs. Order tickets online at or call 253.879.6013. Admission is $12 for the general public.

FOUR ROHOLT PAINTINGS Now on view in Pacific Lutheran University’s University Gallery is “Paintings by David Roholt,” an exhibit featuring a local artist who reinvents images using painterly processes. Roholt’s work has been widely distributed to the PLU and SOAC community on the cover

of the 2013-2014 SOAC brochures. A key component of Roholt’s imagery includes a juxtaposition of abstracted elements to more relatable forms. Roholt’s largest body of work explores how identifiable details can be pushed and pulled between clarity and ambiguity. The exhibition will feature more than 30 pieces of work and will be on view until Nov. 13.

FIVE FREE FAMILY MOVIE Hurry and don’t miss a special free screening of “Hotel Transylvania” at the Grand Cinema this Saturday, Oct. 19. Doors open at 9:30 a.m. and the movie will begin at 10. For more information visit www. and click on events or call (253) 572-6062.

AVIAN ARCHITECTURE. In her latest show, “Scavenged,” at UPS’s Kittredge Gallery through Nov. 9, Tacoma artist Holly Senn uses recycled library books to replicate birds’ nests. “Blackbird” (Right) and “Marsh Wren” are two examples of nest forms that Senn has enlarged and replicated.

Holly Senn installs display of paper nests in Kittredge Gallery By Dave R. Davison


acoma’s Holly Senn is a serious artist. She is hardworking, well organized, consistent and devoted to fine craftsmanship. This librarian-turned-artist works almost exclusively with the delicate and ephemeral medium of paper: recycled library books specifically. Decommissioned books are cut, ripped and rendered into new objects. Senn is deeply interested in exploring the life cycle of ideas. The use of pages from old books is as symbolic as it is practical. The humble, readily available material of her work is covered in disjointed fragments of the printed word. Pages that once conveyed narratives and coherent thoughts are now pulled apart so that the printed word becomes something decorative, if ancillary, to the new uses to which they are put. Senn is mainly interested in organic forms found in nature. Much of her work is made as part of grand installations. The production of individual, durable art objects for sale to collectors in a gallery is not her main focus. Senn is true to her pursuit of manifesting beautiful, momentary ideas.

Prolific in the production of her art, Senn’s shows and installations appear in both Tacoma and Portland at regular intervals. University of Puget Sound’s wonderful Kittredge Gallery is the latest venue in which art viewers have an opportunity to see her work. The present show, entitled “Scavenged,” is the result of Senn’s fascination with the variety of nests that birds build. UPS’s Slater Museum of Natural History includes a large collection of bird nests. Senn selected examples of these and set about the task of replicating them using her stockpile of old books. The actual nests that served as her inspiration accompany the exhibit so that the viewer can compare the work of the bird to that of the artist. Senn often makes her paper nests larger in order to explore and exhibit their structure and form. As one examines Senn’s paper nests, the eye can’t help but pick out random sentence fragments or individual words that remain on the paper. On “Song Sparrow,” for example, one can read “mockery of him…,” “problems come too fast…,” “social operations…,” “logical differences…” Such random scraps retained by the material make Senn’s nests into repositories of dada poetry.

A trio of enlarged “Cliff Swallow” nests is made with wads of paper in mimicry of the wads of mud used by the swallows. Inspection of these reveals that one book used was printed in Chinese, one in German and one in English. A trio of “Black Bird” nests dangles from the ceiling like small tornados woven of tangled strips of paper. Senn’s exhibit occupies Kittredge’s so-called “small gallery.” In the large gallery is a show of screen prints by Randy Bolton, head of the print media department at Michigan’s Cranbrook Academy of Art. Bolton uses nostalgic, storybook images and ads a new, often sinister twist in order to jolt the viewer out of his or her comfort zone. His use of color is scrumptious. In this jaded era, however, attempts at the old switcheroo as a shock device are old hat. The images are more amusing than shocking: as in a scene in which the proverbial fox catches up to the gingerbread man only to find a cannibal scene of the gingerbread man already feasting on a pair of his fellows. Senn’s “Scavenged” and the Bolton prints are on display through Nov. 9. For further information visit or call (253) 879-3701.

Art at Work 2013

Month-long celebration to raise awareness of vibrant local arts community By Kate Burrows


his November, artists, performers, authors and more are opening their doors to the public to give onlookers a peak inside their worlds, thanks to the annual Art at Work: Tacoma Arts Month festivities. What many people may not understand is these doors are often open throughout the year, but through this annual celebration of art, culture and performance, members of the community have a chance to learn more about all Tacomaâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s arts community has to offer. Events scheduled throughout the month will provide a little something for everyone, from film screenings and visual arts exhibits to literary readings, cultural events and musical performances. Information about the 300-plus Art At Work month events can be found at Two signature events will take place, with the kick-off party and AMOCAT Arts Awards celebration taking place Oct. 28. This free celebration will take place at Foss Waterway Seaport (705 Dock St.), featuring live music by Taxi Driver, a dramatic molten iron pour by Tacoma Community College, contemporary dance performance by the BareFoot Collective, urban arts by Fab-5, poetry readings, film screenings, arts projects and more. The event will also feature appetizers, dessert and a no-host bar. The Tacoma Arts Commissionâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s 2013 funding recipients and AMOCAT award winners Erivan and Helga Haub and family, Puget Sound Book Artists, and David Domkoski will be recognized during the festivities. Art at Work month, sponsored in part by Tacoma Weekly, will also feature self-guided studio tours to allow the community to get to know the local artists located in their own back yards. On Nov. 2 and 3, from 11 a.m. to 5 p.m., 39 locations throughout Tacoma will be open to the public, featuring art demonstrations, hands-on activities, performances and more. â&#x20AC;&#x153;This is a great chance for people to understand and appreciate the work that goes into creating some of these art pieces,â&#x20AC;? said Naomi Strom-Avila, cultural arts specialist for the City of Tacoma. Individuals can map their own course to visit the studios that most interest them.

FRAULEINS AND 40S. Maltoberfest 8: Menace II Sobriety will cel-

ebrate cheap, potent brews and rowdy regional rock and hip-hop on Oct. 19 at Bob’s Java Jive. Call a cab. By Ernest A. Jasmin


ctober is the month for celebrating beer in Washington (you know, more than we normally celebrate beer here). Among the Oktoberfest-themed events that Western Washingtonians have to choose from, none promises to be as gritty as Maltoberfest, an event that will again bring together b-boy and Bavarian themes at Bob’s Java Jive on Oct. 19. Founder Craig Egan gave us an idea of just how crazy things may get. Tacoma Weekly: So what exactly is Maltoberfest? Egan: Maltoberfest is our annual malt liquor Oktoberfest celebration. Basically, it’s all things German and gangsta. If you think about lederhosen and bling or polka and rap or hot dogs and Olde English 800, that’s what we’re doing. It’s pretty awesome. TW: How did it get started? Egan: A friend of mine had a private party before ENOUGH SAID (93 MIN, PG-13) Fri 10/18: 2:00, 4:15, 6:30, 8:40 Sat 10/19-Sun 10/20: 11:45am, 2:00, 4:15, 6:30, 8:40 Mon 10/21-Thu 10/24: 2:00, 4:15, 6:30, 8:40 INEQUALITY FOR ALL (89 MIN, PG) Fri 10/18: 2:25, 4:40, 6:45, 8:50 Sat 10/19-Sun 10/20: 12:15, 2:25, 4:40, 6:45, 8:50 Mon 10/21: 2:25, 4:40, 6:45, 8:50 Tue 10/22: 2:25, 4:40, 8:50 Wed 10/23: 10:30am, 2:25, 4:40, 6:45, 8:50 Thu 10/24: 2:25, 4:40, 8:50 SHORT TERM 12 (96 MIN, R) Fri 10/18: 2:10, 4:25, 7:00, 9:05 Sat 10/19-Sun 10/20: 11:55am, 2:10, 4:25, 7:00, 9:05 Mon 10/21: 2:10, 4:25, 7:00, 9:05 Tue 10/22: 4:25, 7:00, 9:05 Wed 10/23: 2:10, 4:25, 9:05 Thu 10/24: 2:10, 4:25, 7:00, 9:05 BLUE JASMINE (98 MIN, PG-13) Fri 10/18: 5:45 Sat 10/19-Sun 10/20: 12:30, 5:45 Mon 10/21-Thu 10/24: 5:45 LEE DANIELS’ THE BUTLER (132 MIN, PG-13) Fri 10/18-Thu 10/24: 2:40, 8:00 RAISING MS.

that. It was a fortified wine tasting where we drank Night Train, Thunderbird, Cisco and all the Mad Dogs, you know. It was a very elegant event where we sat around and drank fortified wine. And so we tried to come up with the beer equivalent of that. Once the name Maltoberfest came out of my mouth it just clicked into place. Then we started photoshopping images of Snoop Dogg together with frauleins, and it just got funnier and funnier. So we just couldn’t let it go. TW: As a connoisseur, what are the top malt liquors or fortified wines? Egan: Olde English 800 is definitely one of the best. Best is a loose term in this context, but people like the Olde English. People like Mickey’s a lot. We drink a lot of Brass Monkeys, which is traditionally Olde English and orange juice. The more hardcore fans will drink 211 Steel Reserve. Those are pretty much the three that we serve at Maltoberfest, based on what our distributor has available. TW: So how does it work? Don’t you pay a flat fee and get unlimited 40s or something? Egan: We don’t pass out 40s. We found out that was dangerous. But, for $15, you’ll get unlimited food. You’ll get three drink tokens, and if you come in Maltoberfest attire you’ll get five drink tokens, which should pretty much cover you for the night. One of the secrets is we just pour the beer in red keg cups. But if you bring your own stein or you bring your own pimp chalice, we’ll fill it up - no matter how big it is - for one drink ticket. It has to be something within the theme, so don’t bring

HOTEL TRANSYLVANIA (91 MIN, PG) Sat 10/19: 10:00am

your Big Gulp cup. TW: What is the key to having the best Maltoberfest costume? And do you have a contest? Egan: We definitely do appreciation and recognition for costumes, but there’s not an official contest as such. I’m constantly surprised at how many people have invested in really nice, expensive lederhosen for Maltoberfest; and then your gangsta gear – your grills and your bling and your track pants or whatever. I’ve seen some really amazing combinations. I saw one gentleman who had some lederhosen that were sagging with his boxers sticking out the top. He pulled it off really well. TW: What about the music? You tend to choose different bands from a lot of other festivals. I think you first brought Saucy Yoda to Tacoma for Maltoberfest. Egan: Yeah, it’s kind of an eclectic group. We have 508 Disturbance. They’re a rap group, and they’re notably the only group that has played every single Maltoberfest. They’re kind of a Biznautics spinoff. And then we have a band, Warning Danger, from Seattle. They’re kind of a safety punk sort of band. They wear a lot of safety gear … and they sing about the danger of danger. Fun Police are playing this year, and then Ten Pole Drunk from Tacoma. Artesian Rumble Arkestra. They’re a big marching band from Olympia. You’d have to see ‘em to understand.

FRI., OCT. 18 CONFESSIONS OF A LATTER-DAY VIRGIN King’s Books is celebrating the release of Nicole Hardy’s “Confessions of a Latter-Day Virgin.” In her funny, intimate, and thoughtful memoir, Hardy explores how she came, at the age of 35, to a crossroads regarding her faith and her identity. As a member of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints, she held an absolute conviction in her Mormon faith during her childhood and throughout her 20s. But as she aged out of the Church’s “singles ward” and entered her 30s, she struggled to merge the adventurous life she envisioned for herself with the one the church prescribed, where all women are called to be mothers and the role of homemaker is the emphatic ideal. The event takes place at 7 p.m. King’s Books, located at 218 St. Helens Ave. Info: www.

BULLETIN BOARD ‘PIRATES OF PENZANCE’ Tacoma Opera’s 2013-14 season kicks off with Gilbert & Sullivan’s “The Pirates of Penzance.” A pirate king, a fair maiden, and a model of a modern major general…this enchanting comic operetta in two acts will delight both young and old. Sung in English. Performances take place Fri., Oct. 25 at 7:30 p.m. and Sun., Oct. 27 at 2 p.m. at the Rialto Theater. Tickets: $28-$68, available at WILLIAM SHAKESPEARE’S ‘HAMLET’ “To be, or not to be, that is the question.” This performance is the first production of Hamlet in The Acting Company’s 40-year history. The play dramatizes Prince Hamlet’s quest for revenge for his father’s murder, setting him on a journey that will force him to face his personal mortality. It vividly portrays overwhelming grief and rage while exploring themes of danger, revenge and moral corruption. “Hamlet” is among the most powerful and influential tragedies in English literature, one of Shakespeare’s most popular works during his lifetime, and still ranks among his most performed. Many believe that Hamlet represents the best of his work, and is certainly one of his most well-known and oft-quoted plays. Performances take place Oct. 25 and 26 at 7:30 p.m. and Oct. 27 at 3 p.m. at Theatre on the Square. Tickets: $42-$68, available at ‘POTTED POTTER: THE UNAUTHORIZED HARRY EXPERIENCE’ “Potted Potter” brings magic to the Muggle world by condensing all seven “Harry Potter” novels into 70 hilarious minutes.

This fantastically funny show features all your favorite characters, a special appearance from a firebreathing dragon and even a game of Quidditch involving the audience.

“Potted Potter” is a must-see for Potter addicts and a great introduction to the series for anyone who’s ever wondered what all the fuss is about. Even if you don’t know the difference between a horcrux and a Hufflepuff, “Potted Potter” brings comedy, magic and mayhem in an entertaining show for ages six to Dumbledore (who is very old indeed). Performances take place at the Rialto Theater, Oct. 29-31 at 7:30 p.m., Nov. 1 at 7:30 p.m. and 9:30 p.m., Nov. 2 at 3 p.m. and 7:30 p.m., and Nov. 3 at 3 p.m. Tickets: $38-$59, available at AL-MUTANABBI STREET STARTS HERE The traveling exhibit of artist books, created to defy an Iraqi bomb, runs now through Oct. 31 in the Collins Memorial Library of the University of Puget Sound. On March 5, 2007, in the middle of the Iraq War, a car bomb devastated the literary and intellectual heart of Baghdad, ripping through booksellers, cafes, and tea shops, killing 30 people and wounding more than 100. San Francisco poet and artist Beau Beausoleil and British scholar Sarah Bodman responded to the devastation by asking artists and poets from around the world to create artists’ books as a show of solidarity with those slain and injured. The result is a remarkable exhibition of some 200 handmade artists’ books and single-sheet broadsides. The co-curators say the display aims to “pay homage to the truth that can rest between any two covers,” and to reflect “the ultimate futility of those who try to erase thought.” Collins Memorial Library at University of Puget Sound is proud to be hosting the national traveling exhibit Al-Mutanabbi Street Starts Here this fall. (Al-Mutanabbi, the bombed street, was named after Iraqi poet al-Mutanabbi, the Arab world’s equivalent of Shakespeare). The show includes more than 50 works from the original collection.
